Department of Homeland Security – Whose Side Are They On?

0

HOW many times does it bear repeating: DHS is a captured agency! Clearly, the proofs keep piling up, and that is that.

NEVERTHELESS, many find it hard to wrap their brains around such an anti-American thrust, yet, wishing doesn’t make it so. Thus, let the following serve as further evidence and attestation to the oft-claimed charge.

Commentary By Adina Kutnicki

 

AD infinitum, akin to a broken record, this site has reported on the Gestapo-like tactics of Obama Inc.’s DHS, a captured operation. Orwell’s universe. And it’s into this Alice-in-Wonderland vortex which patriots, akin to filmmaker James O’Keefe, find themselves.

Conservative journalist James O’Keefe, known for targeting liberal groups and Democratic politicians, says he is now the one being targeted — by the Department of Homeland Security.

It all started in August 2014, when O’Keefe donned green fatigues and an Osama bin Laden costume and sneaked across the U.S. border to Mexico and then back into Texas, a stunt cited by Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) in congressional hearings. O’Keefe said in an interview Wednesday, that his point was to “show that our elected officials were lying to the American people” by saying the border is secure.

But he may have messed with the wrong bureaucrats, because the powerful DHS — the third-largest Cabinet department — controls border security. Ever since the bin Laden stunt, O’Keefe said, he has been stopped and questioned at length by U.S. Customs and Border Protection officers each of the five times he has tried to reenter the United States. The questions, he said, have been overly intrusive, covering his business operations, what his next investigative project will be and his political views.

“It is our contention that this is retaliation for our journalism along the Mexican border,” O’Keefe said. “It’s troubling that they are doing this to a citizen reporter. . . .These questions have nothing to do with national security or border issues or smuggling narcotics into the country. They are questions that they would never ask a Washington Post reporter, that they would never ask NBC News.”

To buttress his claims, O’Keefe did what he does best: He released a surreptitiously recorded video. The 9-minute-16-second production provides hints that DHS was not pleased by O’Keefe’s bin Laden venture but reveals no clear evidence that the agency is targeting him.

At one point, a Customs and Border Protection officer at the Montreal airport is heard asking O’Keefe on July 14: “Maybe you’ve passed the border before in a disguise? Or dressed as someone else? You’ve done that kind of stuff before?”

“So are they retaliating against me?” O’Keefe asks.

The officer firmly denies it. “No, we’re not retaliating against you. Why would you say that?” he says.

At another point, however, a different CBP officer tells O’Keefe that agency officials had put a “hit on you” to avoid getting “egg on their face, basically.”

The video does show officers asking O’Keefe a series of detailed questions about his business model, how his company makes money and his political opinions.

“What’s your next project?” one officer asks.

“I was so flabbergasted by the question, I couldn’t even form a coherent response,” O’Keefe says in the video.

An officer then asks O’Keefe whom he wants to win the Republican nomination for president and whether he would support businessman Donald Trump, who has fueled his political rise with outspoken comments about illegal immigrants.

“I don’t really endorse politicians for, you know, anything,” O’Keefe responds.

In a statement late Wednesday, U.S. Customs and Border Protection rejected O’Keefe’s allegations of retaliation but said it could not comment on the specifics of his case, citing privacy concerns.

“CBP does not retaliate against applicants for entry into the United States,’’ the statement said, adding that travelers can be sent to additional, secondary screening based on a variety of factors, including security concerns, immigration violations and prior criminal convictions. The statement did not contest the video’s depictions of O’Keefe’s encounters with federal officers.

O’Keefe, who styles himself as a “guerrilla journalist,” made his name in conservative circles with controversial stings that in one instance appeared to show officials of a federally funded nonprofit that provided housing and other assistance to low-income people discussing prostitution and tax evasion. The ensuing scandal prompted Congress to strip funding from the group, ACORN, and led to its demise.

In that case and others, O’Keefe was accused of selectively editing his videos. And his new release is not really a video at all: It consists mostly of audio recordings of the federal officers, with the Customs and Border Protection logo on the upper left part of the screen.

In a statement late Wednesday, U.S. Customs and Border Protection rejected O’Keefe’s allegations of retaliation but said it could not comment on the specifics of his case, citing privacy concerns.

The reason, O’Keefe said in the interview, is that he could only record audio because the agents searched his phone. Even to do that, he said he had to “manufacture a special type of device that was recording, where they would have no idea.” He declined to describe the device or where it was hidden.The recordings cover O’Keefe’s experience in Montreal — where he went through customs while on his way to New Jersey from Athens — and a similar experience in Seattle on July 25. In Seattle, he said he was interrogated by officers after returning from a cruise sponsored by National Review magazine.O’Keefe says he did not record the questioning on the other trips in which he reentered the United States between December and June. He says he also was interrogated by officers in April at an airport during a trip to the Virgin Islands, a U.S. territory.Asked why he is now taking on a powerful federal agency, O’Keefe said he felt compelled to go public by what he views as the drastic nature of the harassment, combined with the political timing.“My entire purpose is to shock the conscience of the American people by exposing reality,” he said, adding: “I think immigration is a very timely topic right now. I could have continued recording more interactions, but sometimes your gut instinct is to package a story when you feel you have enough facts.”

AND to prop up said (incendiary) charge, demonstrating how what happened to O’Keefe was hardly a one-off, let’s just hop over to more of the same ala their favorite tactic: to silence all who dare to state the truth re Islam – as well as the dangers accrued due to the incursion of Illegal infiltrators via America’s (purposefully) open sesame borders – they issue outright threats and veiled ones! 

YES, this site asserted in July 2014: “Obama’s Goons Silencing/Threatening Whistleblowers: Shut Up, Or Else.”

NOW, onto the main nail in DHS’s, aka Mafia Inc.’s, charge sheet:

Inside any criminal organization there is a prime directive that says “support Big Brother in every way or their will be serious consequences to pay.”  It’s no different in the Obama administration. Time after time they are quick to punish anyone who dares to reveal to outside world what is really going inside their insidious agencies. Then, should you be brave, or foolish enough to violate the directive they’ll take your job, your reputation, and as in this disgusting case — they’ll even try to take your children.

A Department of Homeland Security agent blew the whistle on the feds . . . and they went after her with a vengeance! Now, she’s speaking out before Congress. Where will this end for her?

According to the Conservative Tribune, Taylor Johnson, a senior special agent with Immigration and Customs Enforcement, told the Senate Committee on Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs that she faced massive retribution after revealing irregularities in the EB-5 visa program. The EB-5 visa grants green cards to foreigners who invest $500,000 in American companies. Johnson, an 11-year veteran of the ICE, told the committee that she found corruption and mismanagement that, in her words, posed “national security risks.” Johnson revealed the following:

“Some of the violations investigated surrounding the project included bank and wire fraud, and I discovered ties to organized crime and high-ranking politicians and they received promotions that appeared to facilitate the program,” she also discovered that:

“applicants from China, Russia, Pakistan, Malaysia had been approved in as little as 16 days. ‘In addition, case files lacked the basic and necessary law enforcement queries.’” Johnson added:

“I found over 800 operational EB-5 regional centers throughout the U.S.,” commenting that this was, “odd because the United States only allows 10,000 EB-5 visas per year.”

Obama’s cohorts don’t take well to being called to task. After blowing the whistle on the EB-5 program, agency retaliation was swift and severe. Johnson was escorted from her desk and denied access to her own case files. The government then informed adoption social workers that Johnson had lost her job due to criminal activity.

“When an adoption social worker tried to contact and verify employment, she was told that I had been terminated for a criminal offense,” Johnson said, holding back tears. “I almost lost my 1-year-old child.” Johnson was also denied her constitutional right to carry a firearm.

“I was told I couldn’t even carry or own a personal weapon which is a constitutional rights violation,” she testified.

Eliminating your job, your reputation, and your constitutional rights seems to be policy for the Obama administration . . . but trying to take your children?

THE urgent query becomes: how could it be that in the United States of America its umbrella security agency treats illegal infiltrators, domestic terrorists and general anti-American provocateurs with kid gloves, yet, patriots and vets are branded “domestic terrorists?”

  

IN fact, America’s security arms shield illegal infiltrators via a revolving door of “justice” ala sanctuary cities and the like. Resultant, the blood of innocent Americans lands at Obama Inc.’s door! Not only that, Muslim Brotherhood Mafia front groups are feted as “go to” addresses re all things Islamic, and Black Panther domestic terrorists are just “misunderstood.” How did it come to this?

ASKED and answered.

ALAS, if ever there was a time to rally around patriotic U.S. soldiers, calling upon them to be insubordinate, this is it. Such is the case when an Islamist-in-Chief is the Commander-in-Chief, one whose end goal – at home and abroad – is to eviscerate all vestiges of America as a nation predicated upon Judeo-Christian principles. One who demands that America’s warriors prostrate before Islam – or else!

Stars & Stripes reports that U.S. personnel accustomed to drinking their coffee on the drive to work will have to put that habit on hold for about a month. It’s one of a few lifestyle changes Americans will have to make during the holy month of Ramadan.

Ramadan is the ninth month of the Islamic calendar. The ritual lasts for 30 days. For the 8,200 U.S. personnel living here, and those serving throughout the U.S. Central Command area of responsibility — including service members, civilian personnel, contractors and family members — the month may require changing some daily routines including reading the Bible publicly.

Navy officials are requiring U.S. personnel to dress like Muslims off-base during Ramadan. Although not a requirement by Bahraini authorities, the Navy is demanding that men wear long-sleeved shirts and women wear sleeved blouses that cover their elbows. Also, men must wear long trousers, and women should wear pants or skirts that cover the knees.

SO if any message needs to be sent by those (non-Muslims) who voluntarily protect America via its armed forces it’s this: “with all ‘due respect’, Mr. President, we are not fighting to protect Islam, rather, to shield America from its barbaric onslaught! And if this is not in sync with your ideological, political and quasi-religious outlook, so be it. Furthermore, we took an oath to the Constitution, not to the person who happens to be despoiling the People’s House – emphasis placed. To wit, let’s call an ace an ace and a spade a spade: you, Mr. President, are an Islamic son of a bitch!!”

OVER AND OUT….

OH, patriots have your backs!
