Please Stop Insulting my Intelligence!

March 17, 2017

☆☆Every single day the NSA intercepts and stores the equivalent of 128 million books.

Will you allow old Gene McVay to put that in perspective?

The Library of Congress has 16 million books.

Our Congressmen are dancing around spouting off saying President Trump’s phone calls and emails somehow escaped the gargantuan dragnet of our 17 corrupt intelligence agencies!

Day after day, fools like Geraldo and Juan Williams are paid to insult our intelligence. They, along with our Congressmen, are either corrupt or completely clueless or all of the above?

I have begged and pleaded with voters to stop sending these babes in the woods to the Swamp! They can’t find their own behinds, much less provide oversight.

The newest NSA Data Center in Utah uses 1.7 million gallons of water A DAY!!! The electric bill is $40 million a year.

Our intelligence apparatus should have been able to prevent 911, the Boston bombing, Khobar Towers, the USS Cole and Pearl Harbor.

Collectively, they COULD NOT EVEN FIND Osama bin Laden!!! Nor do they have any idea how many illegal aliens are roaming our neighborhoods or what they’re up to.

While our Intelligence Agencies don’t know what the bad guys are doing, miraculously, they know what General Flynn is doing. They probably knew where Donald Trump would build a hotel and bought nearby property?

They miraculously had no idea what Obama and the corrupt judge were up to in Hawaii?

What good would 8 Libraries of Congress a day do if you can’t read?

What would George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, Benjamin Franklin, Henry Knox and Alexander Hamilton think about this government gone wild? How big must government overreach become before you raise an eyebrow? What are the odds Paul Ryan and his cronies have a clue?

In this dark expensive swamp there is an alien life form named Donald J. Trump. We may survive if he is successful?

I Won’t be Speaking at an Intelligence Conference

March 14, 2017

★★Recently, I was asked to be Keynote Speaker at an Intelligence Conference in Gatlinburg, Tennessee.

While I wouldn’t mind enjoying a free vacation in the Great Smoky Mountains, I told organizers that they would not like to hear what I would say about the course of the modern Intelligence Community.

Even 50 years ago when I was an analyst, NSA occupied the second largest building in the DC area with the longest unobstructed hallway in the world. Since then, NSA Headquarters expanded and in addition, just the NSA Data Center in Utah is 7 times larger than the Pentagon and 15 times larger than MetLife Stadium, home to the New York Giants and Jets. That’s just one of dozens of facilities around the globe.

The Utah facility electric bill is $40 million a year and you would not like to pay their water bill since they use 1.7 million gallons a day. Oops, you and I are paying their bills.

Every day, the NSA intercepts and stores 1.7 billion emails, phone calls, texts and other electronic communications. That’s equivalent to 138 million books every 24 hours.

In addition to legalizing President Bush’s warrantless wiretapping program, the 2008 FISA Amendments Act gave telecommunications companies retroactive immunity for disclosing Americans’ communications. The Obama warrantless wiretapping, in my opinion, is the Bush program on steroids. We don’t know for sure since the corrupt media was big on exposing the Bush transgressions but they are equally determined to cover-up all of the Obama Administration’s corruption.

When probed by Congressional Intelligence Committees about surveillance under the amended law, intelligence officials admitted the agency had been engaged in “significant and systemic overcollection” of American’s domestic communications. Government reports confirm that the USA has violated FISA, but the USA refuses to release information about these abuses.

It would be one thing if all this eavesdropping would have prevented war after war after war or terrorist attack after terrorist attack, but, alas, it DID NOT. There is so much data that I suspect Intelligence Officials barely have time to dig through information that will help them profit from mergers and acquisitions, learn how much the dividend will be on a certain stock or damage the President of the United States and his Cabinet?

I can tell you one thing for certain; Congress, the News Media, 93% of the DC bureaucrats, most Federal Judges and about half of the American people, DO NOT WANT PRESIDENT TRUMP TO DRAIN THEIR SWAMP!

“The Hanging Judge” Isaac Parker brought law and order to Indian Territory and Fort Smith during the 1800’s but he died in 1896. The only thing standing between America and total anarchy is President Donald J. Trump. As for me and my house, we will back our President.

Do you Really want War with the Russian Federation?

March 6, 2017

From the 1970’s until 1991, I was the tip of the spear preparing, on a daily basis, for WW III with the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics. The USSR was not a nomadic desert tribe, they possessed a formidable nuclear arsenal including ICBMs capable of striking anywhere on United States soil along with some of the best fighter aircraft on the planet. Perhaps it is time for Americans to come to the realization that the USSR no longer exists?

On the night of December 25th, 1991, in a nationally televised speech, Mikhail Gorbachev announced his resignation as president; as he put it, “I hereby discontinue my activities at the post of President of the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics.” He declared the office extinct and handed over its functions, including control of the Soviet nuclear codes, to Boris Yeltsin. That same night after he left office, the flag of the Soviet Union was lowered from the Kremlin and was replaced with the Russian tricolor flag. The next day, December 26th, the Supreme Soviet declared that the Soviet Union had formally ceased to exist as a functioning state, thus they voted both itself and the Union out of existence. Two days after Gorbachev left office, Yeltsin moved into Gorbachev’s old office.

By the end of the 1980s, severe shortages of basic food supplies, including meat and sugar, led to the reintroduction of the war-time system of distribution using food cards that limited each citizen to a certain amount of product per month. Compared to 1985, the state deficit grew from 0 to 109 billion rubles; gold funds decreased from 2,000 to 200 tons; and external debt grew from 0 to 120 billion dollars. Socialism did not work and will never work for a nation.

In my opinion, Modern Russia is more pro-western, pro-Christian, and pro-capitalist than the Modern Democrat Party of Obama, Hillary, Schumer and Pelosi. It also appears to me that the Democrat Party is more in bed with foreign Arab Jihadists than current Russia President Vladimir Putin. Russia actually hates them and has no place for Muslim refugees in his country.

I believe the gulf between the Democrats and Republicans is much greater and broader than during the Civil War. Make no mistake; the Civil War was a war between Democrats and Republicans. While the Republicans won the war and General Lee surrendered to General Grant, the Democrats killed President Lincoln before pretending to be reconstructed and continuing business as usual in the South for a hundred years.

The issue today is not so much slavery; it is the pro-Leninist and pro-Marxist philosophy that turned out millions and millions of Democrats for Bernie Sanders. There is not a shred of doubt in my mind that if the Democrats had not rigged the Primary Election, Bernie would have been the nominee. Hillary could not draw a crowd if she swallowed a fully inflated football.

After success in the Primary, the Democrats were confident they had the White House in the bag. The pitiful Democrats could not even win with a rigged election, 99% of the media and a goodly portion of the Republicans pulling for them! On top of that, the Communist Party of the United States was pulling for Hillary just like they pulled for Obama. Obama was ready to play ball with Russia after his reelection and Hillary couldn’t do enough for Vladimir. Maybe it was his chest and biceps that caused Hillary to fork over our uranium to him?

After French kissing the Russians, the Democrats are now ready to fight them. Our stupidest Republicans also want nothing less than a New Cold War or even a nuclear confrontation with the Russian Federation. The Hanoi Songbird and his girlfriend Lucy Graham have so much free time on their hands they do little else besides stirring the pot from sunup til sundown.

I can’t remember when so many feckless politicians were itching for a war with another Super Power. Those who never felt the sting of battle are always the most hawkish and have the biggest mouths.

With Obama and Hillary giving Vladimir EVERYTHING he could possible want, why would anybody think he would risk a war with the United States by tampering with our election?

Considering our Astronauts cannot reach the International Space Station without Russian help, America may only be 28th in math and science but we’re about 100th in common sense!

A Confederacy of Dunces & Fools

October 27, 2016

Please don’t blame the disaster in Mosul on our Armed Forces!

Our top military leadership has been replaced with Comey-Lynch like duds.

Here is what scares me: Only 41% of Americans fear an attack on American soil.

Think about it, 59% are like Americans on December 7, 1941. I don’t blame Americans, I blame our leaders and mainstream media for downplaying the threat.

Those who hate the United States & Israel are growing stronger every minute as they are infused with our uranium and 140 billion dollars of taxpayer’s cash.

The Islamic State is not in every single State to pick cotton and cabbages.

Open your eyes America, our country is little more than low hanging fruit to strong leaders who dream about our demise. Standing between unspeakable evil and American women & children is an Active Duty Armed Force the size of San Jose, California.

mos

You may not remember when and how the Islamic State took Mosul. Mosul was the center of Christianity and Judaism in the Middle East for about 2,800 years since Jonah was sent there by God. Remember the story from the Book of Jonah? “The word of the LORD came to Jonah the son of Amittai saying, ‘Arise, go to Nineveh the great city and cry against it, for their wickedness has come up before Me.’ But Jonah rose up to flee to Tarshish from the presence of the LORD. So he went down to Joppa, found a ship which was going to Tarshish, paid the fare and went down into it to go with them to Tarshish from the presence of the LORD.” You know the rest of the story and how Jonah finally obeyed God and made it to Nineveh. Here is what Luke wrote in Chapter 11: “This is an evil generation. It seeks a sign, and no sign will be given to it except the sign of Jonah the prophet. For as Jonah became a sign to the Ninevites, so also the Son of Man will be to this generation. The queen of the South will rise up in the judgment with the men of this generation and condemn them, for she came from the ends of the earth to hear the wisdom of Solomon; and indeed a greater than Solomon is here. The men of Nineveh will rise up in the judgment with this generation and condemn it, for they repented at the preaching of Jonah; and indeed a greater than Jonah is here.”

The Islamic State killed every Christian in Mosul, not by giving them poison Kool-Aid but by crucifixion and beheading. ISIS also severely damaged the very Tomb of Jonah.

Mosul is built around ancient Nineveh that was the largest city in the world for some fifty years until the year 612 BC when, after a bitter period of civil war it was sacked by a coalition of the Babylonians, Medes, Chaldeans, Persians, Scythians and Cimmerians.

You may remember that the 101st Airborne under Major General Patraeus was in control of Mosul in 2004 and ten years later the Fall of Mosul took place on Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton’s watch. It occurred between 4–10 June 2014, when Islamic State insurgents, led by Abu Abdulrahman al-Bilawi, defeated the Iraqi army, led by Lieutenant General Mahdi Gharawi. Before that, ISIS took control of Fallujah and Ramadi, inciting conflict with the Iraqi army. On 4 June, the insurgents began their efforts to capture Mosul. The Iraqi army had 30,000 soldiers stationed in the city, facing a 1,500-member attacking force. However, after six days of fighting, the city, as well as Mosul International Airport and helicopters located there were under Islamic State control. Can you do the math; the Islamic State was outnumbered 20 to 1?
Do you doubt that there are at least five million illegal aliens in America who want nothing more than to destroy our country and pick our bones? Our Active duty forces and our armed police on patrol barely number two million.

It may be too late for America? Certainly the deck is stacked against us. Sorry I am not all bubbly and optimistic.

ALL ENEMIES, FOREIGN AND DOMESTIC

July 28, 2016

ef

I have observed our political leaders downplay the threat to America by labeling ISIS “Junior Varsity” and telling us we are safe. Since we cannot trust these political leaders to level with We the People, I am compelled to use my voice and Social Media resources night and day. More than 50 years ago I was an Intelligence Analyst at the National Security Agency. Later, I became a fighter pilot and eventually commanded the joint, multinational Cope Thunder Provisional Wing with six billion dollars in assets including F-4, F-14, F-15, F-15E, F-16, F-18 and CF-18 jet fighters along with KC-10 tankers, E-3B AWACS and C-130 Tactical Airlift.

efg

That was before President Obama fired the most competent Generals, Colonels and Senior Enlisted Chiefs and before he cut our Armed Forces to the bone all the way down to pre WW II levels. It was also before NSA and the other 16 Intelligence Agencies became completely ineffective data collectors spying on law abiding citizens instead of the Boston Bombers and 911 Terrorists.

We are seeing sporadic Islamic attacks in America since 911 but nothing of the magnitude that we can expect. I believe the Islamic State and a hundred more organizations just like them are comfortable with the present leadership of America and are not enthusiastic about upsetting the status quo apple cart. Why awaken the sleeping giant unnecessarily? President Obama and Secretary Kerry like Secretary Clinton before him, are all about talking, drawing red lines, claiming victory and downplaying the threat. As long as members of the Islamic State are welcomed with open arms and our border is easier to cross than the state line between Arizona and California, our enemies can stockpile weapons on our soil and bring insurgents across the border in the numbers and at the times of their choosing.

The FBI has made it clear that ISIS is active in all 50 states. That number was 49 not long ago but now there is evidence of an active ISIS presence in Alaska to make the occupation complete. Obama, Kerry and Hillary would have you believe ISIS is here out of love to pick cabbage but here is the truth: The target and number one goal of the Islamic World is Big Satan and Little Satan. If you don’t know who Islam calls Big Satan, just look in the mirror.

Islam took over the Middle East centuries ago with scimitars but things have changed. Top supporters of Terrorism are the good friends of Barack Obama, Hillary Clinton and John Kerry, Iran & Arabia. Barack’s top aide, Valarie Jarrett, is Iranian; Hillary’s top Aide is Huma Abedin who was an assistant editor at a publication called the Journal of Muslim Minority Affairs from 1996 until 2008.

When Huma Abedin was two years old, the family moved to Jidda, Saudi Arabia, where, with the backing of Abdullah Omar Nasseef, then the president of King Abdulaziz University, her father founded the Institute of Muslim Minority Affairs, a think tank, and became the first editor of its Journal of Muslim Minority Affairs, which stated its mission as “shedding light” on minority Muslim communities around the world in the hope of “securing the legitimate rights of these communities.”

It turns out the Journal of Muslim Minority Affairs is an Abedin family business. Huma was an assistant editor there between 1996 and 2008. Her brother, Hassan is a book-review editor at the Journal and was a fellow at the Oxford Center for Islamic Studies, where Nasseef is chairman of the board of trustees. Huma’s sister, Heba is an assistant editor at the Journal.

efi

Just who is Abdullah Omar Nasseef (above)? In his early years as the patron of the Abedins’ journal, Nasseef was the secretary-general of the Muslim World League, which Andrew McCarthy, the former assistant U.S. attorney who prosecuted the “Blind Sheik,” Omar Abdel Rahman, in the wake of the 1993 World Trade Center bombing, claims “has long been the Muslim Brotherhood’s principal vehicle for the international propagation of Islamic supremacist ideology.”

Although it describes itself a nongovernment organization, the Muslim World League is effectively an arm of the Saudi Arabian government. As a lawsuit posted on the Philadelphia Enquirer website states “a full time employee of the Muslim World League testified as follows:

“Let me tell you one thing, the Muslim World League, which is the mother of IIRO (International Islamic Relief Organization) is a fully government funded organization. In other words, I work for the government of Saudi Arabia. I am an employee of that government.

efj

Second, the IIRO is the relief branch of that organization which means that we are controlled in all of our activities and plans by the government of Saudi Arabia.

Keep that in mind, please … I am paid by my organization which is funded by the [Saudi] government … the [IIRO] office, like any other office in the world, here or in the Muslim World League, has to abide by the policy of the government of Saudi Arabia. If anybody deviates from that, he would be fired; he would not work at all with IIRO or with the Muslim World League.” In my opinion, the IIRO is a small time version of the Clinton Foundation?

This brings us to John Kerry and his daughter who married Dr. Behrooz Vala Nahid. As part of the wedding preparations, Kerry went to a dinner party hosted by George Soros at his Manhattan penthouse where he undoubtedly met the best man Mahdi Zarif and also met his father, Mohammad Javad Zarif, Iranian Foreign Minister, who acted as the chief negotiator during nuclear talks, across the table from Kerry. Here is an image of Kerry and Zarif:

eff

“I am proud of the Iranian-Americans in my own family, and grateful for how they have enriched my life,” Kerry said in the official statement. Kerry also said he was “strongly committed to resolving” the differences between the United States and the Islamic Republic of Iran, “to the mutual benefit of both of our people.”

Professor Jonathan Gruber, architect of National Romneycare, thinks we’re all stupid and I guess he’s right?

Here we are surrounded by foreign and domestic enemies hell-bent on doing us in. So what’s changed? What’s changed is the Iran Deal. For years Russian and North Korean Nuclear Scientists have been in Iran and they’re not there to pick cotton. The weapons at the disposal of Terrorists today should scare the pants off of you. Those who have no fear are more courageous than I am or they are fools. Years ago suitcase nuclear weapons went missing from the old USSR. Those nukes were of the 6 kiloton variety. The Hiroshima nuke was about 16 kilotons. It’s 2016 and we’re looking at fourth generation nuclear technology. You can bet there are fourth generation suitcase nukes in the hands of Terrorist organizations even as I write this blog. This image is a 100 ton explosion; what would a 6,000 ton explosion do to your city? The second image is a first generation suitcase nuke I took from an Iranian website. The third image is what I expect the enemy to have today, more like a briefcase!

efa

efc

efb

Now think about the possibility of those weapons already being in America. Their value lies in their ability to be easily smuggled across borders, transported by means widely available, and placed as close to the target as possible.

The nuclear, biological and chemical threat exists along with a repertoire of lethal weapons that range from vehicles and sabotage to arson and drones. Don’t think our food and water supply is safe and don’t think Terrorists don’t have chemical weapons captured in Syria along with surface to air missiles captured in Libya.

efd

Don’t rule out larger drones in the hands of Terrorists and don’t expect the Islamic State to get a permit from the FAA to employ them, perhaps by the hundreds?

efe

Just like a gun free zone is music to Terrorist’s ears, so is a burn ban. This year Kansas had the largest wildfire in their history and last year Washington State had the largest wildfire complex in their history.

Maybe Obama, Hillary and Kerry have no imagination and no clue but I guarantee our enemies have great imagination, great skills running from computers to guerrilla warfare and they are focused on the Big Prize. My guess is that there are more than a million insurgents and paramilitary forces already on our soil equipped with real nasty surprises for us.

While Terrorists occupy every state, Obama, Kerry and Hillary fret about global warming and guns in the hands of law abiding citizens.

The Terrorists including more than a hundred released by Obama, who rejoined their old units, may wait until after the election before becoming too visible?

Terrorists don’t fear jet fighters or aircraft carriers; they fear Leaders who are on to them and willing to stop them at all costs. There is only one person and has only been one person from the beginning of the Presidential campaign who fits that description. The Terrorists all over the world fear Donald Trump and will do everything they can to keep him out of power or to end his life.

efh

The price of Freedom is eternal vigilance. If you see something, say something but say it to somebody who will do something about it. Clearly, the FBI and Department of Homeland Security are clueless and will remain that way until President Trump takes the Oath to preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of the United States. As an Air Force Officer I took the Oath to support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic. That is not part of the Presidential Oath. God bless America

National Security 101

July 7, 2016

ns4

The American People are not generally knowledgeable about the laws regarding Classified Information. I was not only a Fighter Pilot and Provisional Wing Commander in the Air Force, I was also an Intelligence Analyst at the National Security Agency and graduate of the Air War College. Please permit me to unravel the astonishing FBI Director’s nonsense you watched on TV.

The overwhelming majority of Security Clearances are at the Secret level and most classified information is Secret or lower. Unauthorized disclosure of Secret information would cause “serious damage” to national security.

ns5

I was at a Fighter Wing where only two people on the base had a Top Secret Clearance, the Chief of Intelligence and myself. There are many laws and regulations regarding safeguarding classified information such as the Espionage Act of 1917. Therefore, it was necessary for me to perform many additional duties to protect our very few Top Secret Documents. According to US Code, “Top Secret shall be applied to information, the unauthorized disclosure of which reasonably could be expected to cause exceptionally grave damage to the national security that the original classification authority is able to identify or describe.”

ns3

You learned that the FBI found information on Secretary Clinton’s emails that was above Top Secret. It was so sensitive that even members of Congress were not authorized to view it. As high as a Top Secret Clearance is, it’s not high enough to authorize the holder of the clearance to even walk through the doors at NSA, CIA or most of the 15 other Intelligence Agencies.

I do not believe even the Secretary of State would be able to enter the Communications Center at the U.S. Department of State, it is likely run by NSA or an outside agency.

ns1

But even if a person has a Security Clearance above Top Secret, that person cannot have access to any information unless he or she has A NEED TO KNOW. When I was a young Airman I had an operation on my shoulder in an Air Force Hospital in Japan. Because I had a Security Clearance above Top Secret, a Full Colonel was in the operating room and by my bedside during the operation and my recovery just in case I revealed something classified under sedation. If I had revealed classified information, the doctors and nurses would have been briefed and security clearances would have been run on every one of them. National Security is taken seriously outside the cozy confines of a few DC politician’s offices.

If Ms Clinton did nothing else except give thousands of emails to her lawyers for review, she committed a felony. Even if her lawyers had active US Security Clearances above Top Secret, they did not have the need to know information that could cause exceptionally grave damage to national security. I doubt that they had those clearances anyway!

As President Obama has so forcefully stated, “This is not a Reality Show!” Indeed, when Barack Obama, Loretta Lynch, James Comey and Hillary Clinton play loosey-goosey with national security, people die. Can we the people have any expectation that they protect the Nuclear Launch Codes or War Plans any better than the Presumptive Democratic Nominee for President protected national secrets on her private server?

ns

If Ms Clinton’s malfeasance only merits a wink and a nod, what would she have to do to elicit prosecution? Is Obama, Lynch, Comey and Hillary the best we can do? Is their lack of performance okay with you because they’re not bombastic and they love our enemies? Don’t we owe more to our men and women on the front lines of the War Against Global Terrorism?

MUST WE ACCEPT RAPE IN THE MILITARY?

June 19, 2016

rra

Rape in the military and the service academies is not a new phenomenon but clearly the Obama Administration places solving the rape problem way below fighting global warming.

A 2012 Pentagon survey found that approximately 26,000 women and men were sexually assaulted. Of those, only 3,374 cases were reported. The following year a Pentagon report found that 5,061 troops reported cases of assault. The Obama Administration was optimistic that this 50% increase in reports was indicative of victims “growing more comfortable in the system” and not that more cases were occurring. Of these reported, however, only 484 cases went to trial and only 376 resulted in convictions. Ninety percent of the assault VICTIMS were eventually INVOLUNTARILY discharged.

If that does not send a clear message to our Armed Forces Personnel, what would? Another investigation found that only one in five females and one in 15 males in the United States Air Force would report having been sexually assaulted by service members. I don’t want to get side tracked but this is the same reason military personnel are reluctant to report any Fraud, Waste & Abuse! Whistleblowers become targets of investigations and in ALL cases the Whistleblowers are the ones punished. Fraud, Waste & Abuse probably exceeds a trillion dollars in government and won’t stop until the system is totally changed.

With only 1.3 million active duty military personnel, the number rape cases is staggering. The 1.3 million number is somewhere between the populations of San Jose and San Diego California. The Obama Administration is eager to thrust women into all combat roles at the same time they can’t even protect women from rape in the sanctuary of service academies and military posts and bases.

There are only two possibilities that explain the danger women in the military face:
1) Military leaders believe rape is inevitable and nothing can stop it.
2) The best way to stop rape is to punish victims until they grin and take it.

rrr

As mentioned above, most victims are kicked out of the military but there are other examples. At some overseas military installations, civilian clothes are never worn by our service members and they never leave the instillation. Most Commanders allow soldiers to wear Physical Training Uniforms while they are off duty. These PT Uniforms are comfortable and work well for physical fitness and leisure activities.

rr5

Who wants to wear combat boots and battle dress uniforms to a movie theater or bowling alley on base? At one overseas base this privilege has been suspended because a female soldier was raped while wearing a PT Uniform. In effect, everybody on that base is being punished because of what a rapist did. Does that make sense to you? Our society loves to blame rape victims because they wore provocative clothes or they were drinking and asking for it. At Gene McVay’s Base, a Commander who punishes victims or punishes all personnel for criminal actions of one rapist would be gone faster than you can say “scat!”

I am afraid almost all of the visionary combat commanders who possessed leadership ability are gone and replaced with diversity climate change warriors?

A report published in the New York Times about a survey of women soldiers’ experience in the Iraq War showed a significant incidence of post traumatic stress syndrome resulting from the combination of combat stress and sexual assault. At least 15% of female veterans from Iraq and Afghanistan who visited a Veterans Affairs facility screened positive for military sexual trauma.

Sexual assault is a crime defined as sexual contact upon a person or persons unwillingly, by means of force, physical threat, and abuse of authority which often leads to the victim or victims of the crime fearing to seek justice and the fear is instilled by the same means in which the act was opposed on the person or persons. Sexual Assault includes: Rape; Indecent Assault; Attempts to commit these acts; Witnessing these acts and not reporting them.

According to a 2011 Newsweek report, women are more likely to be assaulted by a fellow soldier than killed in combat. At least 25% of military women have been sexually assaulted, and up to 80% have been sexually harassed.

A substantial increase in reported sexual assaults was reported at the 3 U.S. military academies for the school year 2010 to 2011.

An alleged victim of sexual assault sued the sitting Secretary of Defense and the former Secretary of Defense in the United States District Court for the Eastern District of Virginia during 2011. Her claim was that their Department had failed to protect her from her assailant. The Court dismissed the claim on grounds that without Congressional invitation, the courts have little authority to intervene in military affairs because under Article I, Section 8 of the Constitution, regulation of the military is the responsibility of Congress. Can you understand the depressing hopelessness a young woman victim faces in the United States Armed Forces? She is shunned by military commanders, abandoned by the President and Congress and swept under the carpet by the Federal Courts. This IS NOT what I fought for during 34 years of military service. Is this really who we are?

Once, when one of my men was accused of sexual harassment, a female inspector investigated the case. I was pretty sure he was guilty. After her investigation she came into my office and reported she could not substantiate the allegations. She then added, “That’s what you wanted to hear isn’t it?” I told her I wanted to hear the truth. The Inspector General System in the government in its present form can never work. How many trillion dollars and ruined lives must we see before somebody realizes we must have an independent IG system?

In 2013, two male officers convicted by courts martial of sexual assault were given clemency consisting of having their convictions set aside by respective three-star generals, Lieutenant Generals Craig Franklin of the Third Air Force and Susan Helms of the 14th Air Force.

The clemency cases were followed in May 2013 with the arrest for sexual battery of an Air Force Lieutenant Colonel assigned to the Air Force’s sexual assault prevention program. Public pressure brought Marine General Jim Amos, Air Force General Mark Welsh and the Secretary of the Air Force Michael Donley to testify on the subject.

Army General and Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Martin Dempsey was quoted saying, “We’re losing the confidence of the women who serve that we can solve this problem…. That’s a crisis.” Secretary Hagel “ordered the retraining and recertification of U.S. military personnel whose job it is to work to prevent sexual assault and assist the victims”. In Congress, the “Military Justice Improvement Act” was announced. The act “would mean that trained military prosecutors, not commanding officers, would decide whether sexual assault cases should go to trial, according to a group of at least 16 U.S. senators and members of the House of Representatives behind the legislation. It also would mean commanders cannot set aside the conviction of anyone who has been found guilty of sexual assault or downgrade a conviction to a lesser offense”, Representative Kyrsten Sinema (D-AZ), who once worked as a rape crisis counselor, said, “It is clear that something is not working.”

Two years ago there were some new initiatives on curbing retaliation that were aimed at addressing a long-standing problem in the Defense Department — that victims often are blamed for reporting crimes, shunned by colleagues, challenged professionally or depicted as having a mental health disorder and discharged. Anu Bhagwati, a Marine Corps veteran and executive director of the Service Women’s Action Network, said the retaliation issue must be addressed to improve reporting and ensure that victims feel supported and secure. “We’ve seen number of assaults increase and decrease over time — a little bump here, a little drop there — but the retaliation is a clear indication that the climate still isn’t safe for victims,” Bhagwati said. “Retaliation is a crime under the UCMJ. What’s being done with these people? Are they being punished?”

rrrr

All of this reminds me of the smoke and mirrors used by the VA to avoid caring for Veterans and ruling on Combat Disability Claims. The simple truth is that our weakened military under this Congress and this President cannot even defend our military recruiters on military installations or our daughters serving in the Armed Forces anywhere! I could call or visit my U.S. Senators or Representatives but it would be a total waste of time. They are probably giving some Communist group a tour of the Capitol or away on a junket visiting the French Riviera? They will take time to ask me for my vote in a couple of months.

How Bad is the United Nations?

June 16, 2016

Why won’t CNN, Fox News, ABC, CBS, NBC, MSNBC, the New York Times and Washington Post point this out to you? Why is it left to me, an old Agent Orange ravaged former Fighter Pilot and Wing Commander?

unGA

Anybody who loves America and was willing to shed blood to defend America and uphold the Constitution would want you to know this information. Is the United Nations a friend of America and Israel? I first visited the United Nations General Assembly Hall 55 years ago as a teenager. If I had known then what I know now, I probably would have vomited on the floor?

According to the United Nations, the most evil country in the world today is Israel. On March 24, 2016, the U.N. Commission on the Status of Women (CSW) wrapped up its annual meeting in New York by condemning only one country for violating women’s rights anywhere on the planet – Israel, for violating the rights of Palestinian women.

On the same day, the U.N. Human Rights Council concluded its month-long session in Geneva by condemning Israel five times more than any other of the 192 UN member states.

There were five Council resolutions on Israel. One each on the likes of hellish countries like Syria, North Korea and Iran. Libya got an offer of “technical assistance.” And countries like Russia, Saudi Arabia and China were among the 95 percent of states that were never mentioned.

No slander is deemed too vile for the U.N. human rights bodies that routinely listen to highly orchestrated Palestinian versions of the ancient blood libel against the Jews.

Here is an image of the few countries that VOTE WITH THE UNITED STATES in the United Nations. As you can see, most of the 192 UN member states oppose the Unites States. Yes, they bite the hand that has been feeding them since before I first set foot in the Cesspool in New York. Have you ever wondered why our political leaders cling to this vile organization? I guess it is the politically correct thing to do like embracing ISIS terrorists posing as Syrian refugees?

This next image is interesting to me and may be interesting to you once explained. You see, the Muslim countries all vote against us but they seem to like us more during Barack Obama’s Administration. Was it Obama’s bowing down to Muslim kings or what? I know the image says Arab countries but I don’t think there is an Arab alive who is not a Muslim.

Did you notice Kuwait was voting against us 90% or more before Obama and against us about 66% of the time during Obama?  Do you remember we liberated Kuwait from their Muslim neighbor?

The following quote by Arthur Schlessinger Jr. is included here to provide prospective. He was an American historian, social critic, and public intellectual. Much of Schlesinger’s work explored the history of 20th-century American liberalism. In the 1952 and 1956 presidential campaigns, he was a primary speechwriter and adviser to the Democratic presidential nominee. He served as special assistant and “court historian” to President Kennedy from 1961 to 1963. He wrote a detailed account of the Kennedy administration, from the 1960 presidential campaign to the president’s state funeral, titled A Thousand Days: John F. Kennedy in the White House, which won the 1966 Pulitzer Prize for Biography or Autobiography. He later popularized the term “imperial presidency” during the Nixon administration book of the same name.

“We are not going to achieve a new world order without paying for it in blood as well as in words and money,” warned Arthur Schlesinger Jr. in the July/August 1995 issue of Foreign Affairs. Schlesinger had taken to the pages of the flagship journal of the Council on Foreign Relations to vindicate the dubious proposition that the United Nations military represents the thin blue line dividing peaceful civilization from savagery — in short, our planetary police. But what happens when the planetary police run amok and become the agents of bloodshed? When local police abuse their power, the abused have avenues of redress. From what body can those abused by the planetary police seek justice? The escalating scandal of unpunished atrocities committed by UN “peacekeepers” illustrates that the planetary police are beyond accountability.

“Perhaps our leaders should put the question to the people: what do we want the United Nations to be?” Schlesinger wrote. “Do we want it to avert more killing fields around the planet? Or do we want it to dwindle into impotence, leaving the world to the anarchy of nation-states?” Critics of the UN should eagerly embrace such a debate — provided that a copy of the above photograph is made available to all participants. First published in the United States on the cover of the June 24th issue of the left-wing weekly Village Voice, the photograph depicts two Belgian paladins of the new world order giddily holding a Somali child over an open flame. What have been called Beasts in Blue Berets have been filmed kicking and stabbing a Somali, and another UN Peacekeeper apparently urinating on the Somali’s dead body; another showed a Somali child being forced to drink salt water, vomit, and worms.

One atrocity not caught on camera involved the “punishment” of a Somali child by placing him in a metal container and withholding water from him for two days; predictably, the relentless African heat killed the child. One Belgian UN soldier testified that it was a regular practice to use metal boxes as prison cells, and that other Somalis probably died similarly gruesome deaths.

One might expect such photographs and first-person accounts of such atrocities to arouse public indignation against the UN’s “planetary police,” just as the endlessly replayed videotape of the Rodney King arrest turned public opinion against the Los Angeles Police Department and police prosecutions in Baltimore ripped the city apart. Perhaps this is why the photographs have been all but invisible in the United States, and precious little media attention has been devoted to an examination of UN atrocities.

Village Voice reporter Jennifer Gould came across the accounts of the Belgian atrocities while doing an earlier story about sexual harassment of female employees at UN headquarters. “When I spoke with people at the UN, time after time I was told, ‘If you think it’s bad here, you ought to see what happens in peacekeeping operations,’” Gould told The New American. “I started looking into that issue and found that the abuses I reported were well-known and easily documented. They were all over the media abroad, and I was really surprised it hadn’t been written about over here.”

Belgian military authorities launched an investigation into the atrocities following publication of a front-page story by Belgium’s Het Laatste Nieuws. Privates Claude Baert and Kurt Coelus, the two paratroopers photographed dangling the Somali child over a flame, were acquitted by a military court, which ruled that the incident — described by Baert and Coelus as a punishment for stealing — was “a form of playing without violence,” according to prosecutor Luc Walleyn. And what of discipline from the UN, whose “Code of Personal Conduct for Blue Helmets” requires that peacekeepers “respect and regard the human rights of all”? Gould reports that a UN spokesman dismissed the acquittal of Baert and Coelus by insisting that “the UN is not in the habit of embarrassing governments that contribute peacekeeping troops.”

For its diligence in reporting unwelcome news, Het Laatste Nieuws was rewarded with a bomb threat. Reporter Lieve Van Bastelaere informed The New American that the man arrested for making the threat owned a local bar that is frequented by many people in the military, including veterans of “peacekeeping” missions. “He apparently had been angered by what he had read,” Bastelaere observed dryly. “We’ve enhanced our security here at the paper, and the police took the threat seriously, even though he may have been drunk when he made it. He claimed not to remember phoning in the threat when he was arrested.”

Three members of a now-disbanded elite Canadian paratroop regiment were tried and convicted of criminal charges in the beating death of a 16-year-old Somali boy named Shidane Arone; the three “peacekeepers” had been photographed smiling beside the bloody corpse of the boy, whose hands had been bound. The incident prompted the creation of a Canadian government commission to review that nation’s military and its involvement in “peacekeeping” missions; however, the inquiry foundered on the obstructionism of political and military bodies and produced what Canadian critics call an incomplete and inadequate report.

Italian military officials admitted that Italian soldiers assigned to UN duty in Somalia had also tortured and otherwise abused Somali civilians. According to the Washington Post, “Two generals who led the Italian forces to Somalia resigned following publication of graphic reports of sexual violence against a Somali woman, electric torture of a young man and allegations that an officer had murdered a young boy.” Drugs and prostitutes also were allowed to circulate freely among Italian UN troops.

The Italian government assembled a five-member commission of inquiry, which interviewed 145 people and traveled to Africa to interview Somalis who had been tormented by UN troops or witnessed the bestial acts firsthand. The panel’s 46-page report documented that “the criminal events were not just the result of ‘rotten apples’ that you may find in any structure, but were rather the consequence of a stretched line of command and amused compliance toward such high jinks by some junior officers.”

“Shocking as it is, the UN scandal in Somalia is no anomaly,” wrote Gould in the Village Voice. “[An analysis] of documents and reports relating to recent UN peacekeeping operations has uncovered incidents ranging from murder and torture to sexual exploitation, harassment of and discrimination against local women and children.”

The New York Times reported that 47 Canadian UN troops who served in Bosnia were accused of “drunkenness, sex, black marketeering and patient abuse at a mental hospital they were guarding.” The soldiers had been assigned the “humanitarian” chore of guarding a mental hospital at Bakovici in order to secure it for the staff’s return. “The hospital instead became the setting for heavy drinking; sex between soldiers, nurses and interpreters that violated regulations; black-market sales; and harassment of the patients….”

During the “frenzy of looting” that broke out in Liberia decades ago, peacekeepers used UN vehicles to make off with pilfered goods, according to USA Today. UN vehicles — and the troops responsible for them — have also been a boon to Balkan drug smugglers. The Washington Times reported that “U.S. and Bosnian officials suspect that high-ranking UN officials from Jordan based in the central Bosnian towns of Bugojno and Travnik routinely provided UN vehicles to help smugglers get contraband past checkpoints. The officers appear to have received money and the services of prostitutes from the smugglers, led by Islamic foreigners who entered Bosnia with U.S. approval to defend the Muslim government.”

UN forces in Rwanda actually abetted the worst bloodletting in recent memory — the Rwandan genocide, in which a half-million Tutsis were annihilated in approximately 100 days. “Many of the mass murderers were employees of the international relief agencies,” testified Peter Hammond of Frontline Fellowship in Holocaust in Rwanda. In one incident recounted by Hammond, Belgian UN troops stationed in a heavily fortified compound in Kigali “deceived the Tutsi refugees by assembling them for a meal in the dining hall and then they evacuated the base while the refugees were eating. Literally two minutes after the Belgians had driven out of their base, the Presidential Guard poured into the buildings annihilating the defenseless Tutsi refugees.”

The market in prostitution — including child prostitution — thrives wherever blue berets decamp. According to Gould, records of UN peacekeeping missions document that “brothels have sprouted nearby — and in one case allegedly inside — UN compounds. In the latter case, prostitutes were allegedly employed by the UN and were reportedly even shipped on UN planes to fornicate with a UN staff member in hotels paid for by the UN.”

A UN study on children in war reported that blue berets had been involved in child prostitution in six of the 12 countries studied. In country after country unfortunate enough to attract the UN’s “humanitarian” intervention, “the arrival of peacekeeping troops has been accompanied with a rapid rise in child prostitution,” the document reported. However, as Jennifer Gould learned, the mistreatment of women is something of a UN tradition — the world body’s enthusiastic support for radical feminism notwithstanding. Gould described the plight of Catherine Claxon, a UN employee who filed the first-ever sexual harassment complaint against the UN in 1991. After Claxon filed her complaint, “Someone fired a shot through the glass window of a coffee shop by the United Nations” — just above Claxon’s head. “Another bullet shattered Claxon’s windshield as she drove home from her job at the UN one night on the Long Island Expressway.” On three other occasions, Claxon was nearly run off the road — at the same spot where she was nearly killed by the gunshot. According to Gould, “UN women describe a godfather-like institution” — a network of cronyism and corruption. “This is compounded by the fact that in some UN member countries, women are treated as chattel instead of as equals.”

Gould described the UN as “a bizarre universe of intrigue and outrage, where diplomats from 185 countries — stuffed suits simmering with regional, religious, and class-bred hatreds — try to promote world peace.” Such is the character of the institution whose masters crave the power to enforce “world law.” The essence of that abstraction is captured in the photograph of “peacekeepers” Baert and Coelus playfully swinging a Somali child over a fire: Unaccountable power employed mercilessly against the helpless.

More than seven decades ago, while the U.S. Senate was debating ratification of the League of Nations Covenant, Senator William Borah (R-ID) sought to cool the ardor of the League’s supporters by dousing it with a bracing shower of cold reality. Those who believed that a world army would consist of stainless champions of “world peace” were ignoring the unyielding facts about human nature. A world army, Borah declared, would consist of “the gathered scum of the nations organized into a conglomerate international police force ordered hither and thither by the most heterogeneous and irresponsible body or court that ever confused or confounded the natural instincts and noble passions of a people.” Can there be any doubt that the UN has vindicated Borah’s dismal prophecy?

I will leave you with this, a United Nations whistleblower who was suspended for exposing the sexual abuse of children by peacekeepers has resigned over the organization’s failure to hold senior officials to account. By the way, this resignation happened this month, June 2016!

Anders Kompass, director of field operations at the UN human rights office in Geneva, announced his resignation on Tuesday. Kompass – whose suspension last year for exposing the sexual abuse of children in Central African Republic was revealed by the Guardian – said he could no longer work for an organization with no accountability.

unak

“The complete impunity for those who have been found to have, in various degrees, abused their authority, together with the unwillingness of the hierarchy to express any regrets for the way they acted towards me sadly confirms that lack of accountability is entrenched in the United Nations. This makes it impossible for me to continue working there,” he told the IRIN news agency.

Kompass announced his resignation five months after a report commissioned by Ban Ki-moon into the scandal completely exonerated him for sharing confidential documents that revealed children as young as eight and nine were being raped by peacekeepers in the Central African Republic.

Kompass passed the information to French prosecutors after becoming frustrated that nothing was being done by the UN to stop the abuse.

Kompass’s resignation comes after one of the key senior UN figures involved in his suspension in April last year announced last month her intention to seek the position of UN secretary general when Ban stands down at the end of this year.

★★Final thoughts: You will never learn the truth about the UN from the American News Media. Congress will continue to pour our tax dollars down the UN rat hole. It would not surprise me to see Barack Obama as the Secretary General of the UN soon, even if he has to become a citizen of Syria to do so.

Save America from Speaker Ryan & Congress

June 7, 2016

pr3

Today, Speaker Paul Ryan will start detailing policy prescriptions that are part of HIS vision that he says will show Americans what the party is for, rather than focusing on what it’s against.

Why am I skeptical about Paul Ryan doing anything except criticizing Donald Trump for not being like Paul Ryan and using his Power of the Purse to give Obama, Reid & Pelosi everything they could possible want?

Ryan and his Lawyer Lobbyist wife who attended Wellesley College like Hillary Clinton, Madeline Albright, Diane Sawyer and Cokie Roberts have amassed a fortune in the area of ten million dollars. That’s quite a feat but what has Ryan done for America?

Ryan has been sucking on the sweet flowing breast of the government for 17 years as a Congressman and has held the most powerful positions in that body including Speaker, Chairman of Ways and Means and Chairman of the House Budget Committee.

pr2

When Ryan swore to uphold and defend the Constitution in 1999, the National Debt stood at $5.6 trillion. A year after Ryan became Budget Chairman; the National Debt soared above $15 trillion for the first time in History. It seems Ryan and his Cartel could not find ANYTHING to cut except the United States Armed Forces and Veteran’s Benefits?

The way Congress allowed our Armed Forces to become provocatively weak represents treason in my mind!

jr

I have NEVER heard one word of criticism flow from Ryan’s lips about President Obama or Obama’s enablers, the United States Congress.

I did hear Speaker Ryan criticize the presumptive Republican Nominee for President many times including most recently for standing up to the activist La Raza anti-Trump U.S. District Judge Gonzalo Curiel. It is ironic that a move is underway to oust another California Judge, the one who sparked outrage after he sentenced a former Stanford University swimmer to just six months in jail for raping an unconscious woman behind a dumpster outside a campus frat party.

The sentence Santa Clara County Superior Court Judge Aaron Persky imposed on Brock Turner, 20, has been blasted by the victim and called a “slap on the wrist” by the San Jose Mercury News.

Of course, that is a criminal matter and Curiel is making hay with the civil suit Trump refuses to settle out of Court. The wealthy and huge companies are often sued because they have deep pockets and are inclined to settle rather than be drug through the mud in a public trial. I remember when everybody was suing aircraft manufacturers because they readily settled for $100,000 when a pilot simply ran out of gas and crashed. The result of not fighting such suits resulted in more and more litigation with the end result of almost destroying general aviation. An aircraft I bought for $11,000 in 1970 would cost over $350,000 today.

Donald Trump knows that if he settles frivolous lawsuits, it will simply result in more and more frivolous lawsuits. The usual suspects: Fox News, CNN, MSNBC, ABC, CBS, NBC, PBS, the Washington Post and New York Times never pass up an opportunity to pummel The Donald for standing up for his rights. Most Americans lack the chutzpah to take on a crooked judge. The very idea that a judge could be crooked seems farfetched to most Americans.

We’d like to think our justices and judges are defined by respect, duty and impartiality. But behind that iconic black robe isn’t always a tireless drive to uphold the Constitution and laws of the United States. Some of the most revered judges are worse than the criminals they should be sentencing. I will mention a couple corrupt judges who will make you question your faith in the legal system but there are so many more!

May I remind you about Judge Mark Ciavarella’s Kids For Cash Scheme? Nicknamed “Mr. Zero Tolerance”, Ciavarella was a big supporter of harsh sentences…for kids. Ciavarella sent thousand of children to a local detention center during his tenure in Luzerne County, PA. Think the kids deserved it? Listen to this: Ciavarella sent an 11-year-old to juvenile detention for almost two years after the kid took his mom’s car for a ride down the block. He also sent a 15-year-old to the same detention facility for mocking her assistant principal on social media and gave a 17-year-old first offender five months for helping steal a DVD. The judge got kickbacks from the facility where he sent those kids. No wonder the hearings often lasted only two minutes, Ciavarella got up to a million dollars for putting hundreds of innocent children behind bars. The courts wised up to his plans, and eventually sentenced Mr. Zero Tolerance to 27 years in prison. Following his sentencing, nearly 4,000 of Ciavarella’s previous convictions were overturned. Too little, too late if you ask Gene McVay!

Then there is Judge Thomas J. Maloney from the infamous Cook County. Maloney and numerous fellow Cook County judges were the focus of an investigation named Operation Greylord. The operation was a joint investigation by the FBI, IRS, USPS and the Illinois State Police to track down corrupt judges. Don’t worry, NOBODY is about to do anything these days about corrupt judges!

Judge Maloney was working his magic in high-profile murder cases. In exchange for rigging murder cases Maloney got over $100,000 in bribes. Maloney let mafia members, murderers and gangsters walk free, as long as he got his “fee.” To this day Maloney is listed as “one of the worst judges in history.” He was convicted of racketeering extortion and obstructing justice.

I could go on and on but YOU have Google. Do I have to spoon feed everybody?

PR4

What Ryan is doing today is paving the way to combat President Trump and maintain the status quo in Congress that brought America to the brink of total collapse. Yes, Republican Leaders love to blame President Obama for America’s sorry state of affairs and too many Americans fall for Ryan’s pompous blather. Do you remember that the Democrats did not need any Republicans to pass the Anything But Affordable Care Act? However, the Republicans could have stopped Obamacare in its tracks, especially when Obamacare resulted in the Democrats losing both the Senate and House. If Ryan and Boehner were half as manly as Nancy Pelosi, they would have used the power of the purse like a brick wall to stop Obama.

pr1

So here we stand, We the People and Donald Trump against the world and against Ryan, Romney, the Bushes and 100% of the crooked media. It shouldn’t be much of a challenge!

Put Barney Fife on the Clinton Email Case!

May 22, 2016

bf

During March 2015 it became publicly known that Hillary Clinton, during her tenure as United States Secretary of State, had exclusively used her family’s private email server for official communications, rather than official State Department email accounts maintained on federal servers. Those official communications included thousands of emails, some containing information above Top Secret. The Government had to know Secretary Clinton was using her private server six years earlier than it became known to the man on the street! It took the United States about four years to win World War II, what has the United States Government been doing since 2009? The FBI has about 14,000 FBI Special Agents with 20,000 support professionals. The Department of Justice has 114,000 personnel and consumes 27 billion taxpayer dollars a year.

I suggest to you that Barney Fife could have investigated, prosecuted and locked up anybody guilty of these allegations years ago! When does foot dragging become a crime? We are witnessing World Class Foot Dragging in the First Degree! Knowledge of the Watergate break-in was like tearing a label off a mattress compared to this email scandal involving National Security. What General Petraeus did to be threatened with prosecution was like having an expired parking meter in comparison!

The Federal Laws and protocols criminally violated by this act including the deletion of about 32,000 emails is profoundly unfathomable! Yet, the FBI and Department of Justice is acting like our 17 Intelligence Agencies when they could not break into an iPhone.

bf2

I know many in the government believe as Professor Gruber believes that We the People are stupid! We are not so stupid that we cannot understand when OUR government is obfuscating, overcomplicating, muddying the water, confounding, mystifying and otherwise clouding the issue when their darling is involved! Are we to believe that the Secretary of State, who is fourth in the line of succession to be President of the United States, can’t tell Top Secret information unless it is marked Top Secret? Come on folks, we’re NOT THAT STUPID!

Former Director of the Defense Intelligence Agency Michael T. Flynn, former United States Secretary of Defense Robert Gates and former deputy director of the Central Intelligence Agency Michael Morell have all said that it is likely that foreign governments were able to access the information on Clinton’s server. Michael Hayden, former Director of the National Security Agency, Principal Deputy Director of National Intelligence, and Director of the Central Intelligence Agency said “I would lose all respect for a whole bunch of foreign intelligence agencies if they weren’t sitting back, paging through the emails.”

bf3

Clinton’s server was configured to allow users to connect openly from the Internet and control it remotely using Microsoft’s Remote Desktop Services. It is known that hackers in Russia were aware of Clinton’s non-public email address as early as 2011. Server records also show that, using a computer in Serbia, a hacker had scanned Clinton’s Chappaqua server at least twice, in August and in December 2012. It was unclear whether the hacker knew the server belonged to Clinton, although it did identify itself as providing email services for clintonemail.com. During 2014, Clinton’s server was the target of repeated intrusions originating in Germany, China, and South Korea.

On August 10, 2015, the IC inspector general said that two of the 40 emails in the sample were “Top Secret/Sensitive Compartmented Information” and subsequently given classified labels of “TK” (for “Talent Keyhole”, indicating material obtained by spy satellites) and NOFORN. One is a discussion of a news article about a U.S. drone strike operation. The second, he said, either referred to classified material or else was “parallel reporting” of open-source intelligence, which would also be classified. According to an unnamed source, a secondary review by the CIA and the National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency endorsed the earlier inspectors general findings concluding that the emails (one of which concerned North Korea’s nuclear weapons program) were “Top Secret” when received by Clinton through her private server in 2009 and 2011.

The IC inspector general issued another letter to Congress on January 14, 2016. In this letter he stated that an unnamed intelligence agency had made a sworn declaration that “several dozen emails [had been] determined by the IC element to be at the CONFIDENTIAL, SECRET, and TOP SECRET/SAP levels.” Other intelligence officials added that the several dozen were not the two emails from the previous sample and that the clearance of the IC inspector general himself had to be upgraded before he could learn about the programs referenced by the emails.

On January 29, 2016, the State Department announced that 22 documents from Clinton’s email server would not be released because they contained highly classified information that was too sensitive for public consumption. At the same time, the State Department announced that it was initiating its own investigation into whether the server contained information that was classified at the time it was sent or received.

Does this make you question our justice system? Does this appear to be anything approaching Equal Justice? The wheels of justice grind slow but do they normally go slower than the movement of tectonic plates? Glaciers move faster than the FBI and Justice Department have moved on the Clinton Scandal. Maybe the investigation should be contracted out to Mayberry PD?
