D’Abrosca: I’m Syrian, And War in Syria Will Not be Kind to Christians

Published

on

On the heels of successful strikes against three supposed chemical weapon production centers near Damascus, Syria last week, warhawks in Washington are frothing at the mouth for more.

President Trump declared “mission accomplished” in a Tweet from the morning after the strikes. Hopefully Trump’s use of force against Bashar Al-Assad’s Russian-backed regime is just an intelligent ploy to get neocons off of his back for a while, but there are rumblings that there could be more to come.

The neocon case for military action in Syria goes something like this: Assad allegedly killed 43 of his own people with chemical weapons, and it’s up to the United States to rectify the situation. They have learned absolutely nothing from the failures in Iraq, Libya, and Yemen.

My so-called “conservative” friends assure me that the military has intel proving Assad’s use of chemical weapons, to which I’m simply not privy, justifying our pre-emptive strike. Call me old-fashioned, but I’d like to see the proof, considering that I’m paying for the bombs. There is nothing conservative about starting foreign wars by deposing secular leaders and turning their relatively stable nations into terrorist strongholds, which cost thousands of lives and billions of taxpayer dollars.

Nor is the responsibility of the United States to police the world. Candidate Trump promised an overdue end to the floundering War on Terror, which is 17-years-old still not sanctioned by Congress.

But today, that’s not the sentient point that I’d like to make.

As a Syrian-American and a Christian, I’m opposed to war in Syria for historical truism that when radical Islamic terrorists fill the void in nations once ruled by secular dictators, Christians die en masse. The tragic loss of 43 lives in an alleged chemical attack pales in comparison to the hundreds of thousands, if not millions of Christians who will suffer if America engages in a full-blown Syrian war.

From 2003, when the United States invaded Iraq, to 2016, the population of Iraqi Christians who once lived in relative peace has declined from 1.4 million to 275,000, according to a report called “Genocide Against Christians in the Middle East.”

According to the report, there are at least 1131 known Christian martyrs in that time period. That figure does not reflect the total death toll – only Christians who are known to have died for refusing to convert to Islam. In the same time period, at least 125 Christian churches have been destroyed by radical terrorists.

In addition, there are thousands Christians in Iraq who have been sold into sex slavery by militant Islamists. The going rate for a a Christian sex slave aged 1-9, called “the spoils of war” by terrorist groups, is 200,000 dinars, or $168 U.S. For about 80 bucks, a Christian sex slave aged 20-30 can be procured for life.

According to a report by the Center for the Study of Global Christianity, 900,000 Christians were been killed by Islamic extremists between 2005 and 2015, a clip of 90,000 per year.

In June 2014, 30,000 Christians in Mosul were forced to convert to Islam or flee when ISIS overwhelmed the city. Many fled to the Nineveh Province, which shortly thereafter was assaulted and captured by the terrorists. The Christians fled to the mountainous region surrounding the province. But they had no way of escaping with ISIS surrounding the base of the mountain, and faced the undesirable choice of trying to re-enter the province and evade the terrorists, or starve to death on the mountain. Most chose the latter, and thousands perished.

This is but one example of the hardships faced by Christians in terrorist-controlled regions.

In 2015, ISIS shot and beheaded and 30 Ethiopian Christians living in Libya. This after the United States deposed Libyan President Muammar Gaddafi in 2011. We came, we saw, he died. Thanks Hillary Clinton’s “diplomacy,” today Libya is in a state of chaos and has thriving slave trade of Nigerian Christians,

The same people whom my ancestors fled to America to avoid – radical Islamists – are the same ones who gain control of formerly stable nations when the United States deposes Middle Eastern dictators, or as RINO’s call it, “spreading democracy.”

The result for the last 17 years has been a Christian genocide.

If you are advocating for war in Syria, you are actively participating in such genocide. Your aims are not noble. No matter how awful you think Bashar Al-Assad is, and no matter how awful he may be, Syria will become a lawless war zone without him. It will be a ripe breeding ground for radical terrorists, and like a recurring nightmare it will mean death for Christianity in that country.

There is a time for war. That time is over now. Many of those who have fought valiantly in the Middle East agree.

Disgraced FBI Agent Strozk Willing to Testify Before House Judiciary Committee

Published

on

A disgraced FBI agent who promised his colleagues that he “will stop” President Donald J. Trump from being elected is willing to testify before the House Judiciary Committee, according to a letter sent by his attorney Sunday.

According to the letter that was obtained by CNN,  Aitan Goelman, lawyer for FBI agent Peter Strzok, says that House Judiciary Chairman Bob Goodlatte’s pursuit of a subpoena to compel Strzok to testify is “wholly unnecessary.”

Strzok “has been fully cooperative with the DOJ Office of Inspector General” and “intends to voluntarily appear and testify before [the House Judiciary] committee and any other Congressional committee that invites him.”

The recently released Inspector General’s report brought to light more anti-Trump text messages between Strzok and his lover, fellow agent Lisa Page. Both were terrified of a Trump presidency and apparently willing to try to stop it.

Big League Politics reported:

Rep. Mark Meadows said that this information was withheld from Congress — clearly by deputy attorney general Rod Rosenstein and others.

This proves definitively what observers already know: James Comey’s FBI was weaponized against Trump in order to help Hillary Clinton win the election. Clinton was already the Democratic nominee when the following exchange occurred, courtesy of Thursday’s Inspector General report by Michael Horowitz. The conversation occurred on August 8, 2016:

“Lisa Page: [Trump is] not ever going to become President, right? Right?!

Strzok: No. No he’s not. We’ll stop it.”

BLP Passage Ends.

Strzok also rigged the warrant of disgraced former Democratic Congressman Anthony Weiner’s laptop to protect Hillary Clinton from the damaging information it contained.

“On October 29, 2016 Strzok broke FBI policy and emailed a sealed draft warrant for the Weiner emails to his personal email, ” former FBI Special Surveillance Group member Chuck Marler told Big League Politics. “Obviously he wanted to work on the draft out of view of the FBI and most likely allow someone else to view it for their input. What did he put in the warrant that was filed the following day”

Strzok appears willing to testify before the Committee without immunity and without invoking his Fifth Amendment rights against self-incrimination.

The Never Trump Grifter Candidate Has MAJOR Financial Issues

Published

on

A candidate for U.S. Congress from Colorado has made many blunders in his campaign finance history that have been passed off either as mistakes or conveniently explained away.

Darryl Glenn is a County Commissioner for El Paso County, CO, former City Councilman in Colorado Springs and 2016 Candidate for U.S. Senate from Colorado who has a sordid history questionable campaign finance decisions. Not surprisingly, he is part of the NeverTrump establishment GOP. As most understand, the swamp crosses party lines and is not strictly geographically located in Washington.

Dating back to 2014, Glenn has made numerous payments to family members from his campaign committees. According to the Federal Election Commission’s Campaign Finance Database, when Glenn ran for U.S. Senate in 2016 and lost to incumbent Democrat Michael Bennet, he paid his wife, Jane Northrup Glenn, and her company Second Heaven Strategies a combined $54,672 for “consulting services:”

Year Amount Payee Purpose(s)
2017 $30,000 Second Heaven Strategies Campaign Consulting, Strategic Consulting
2016* $24,672 Jane Northrup Salary, Grassroots Consulting, Bonus
TOTAL $54,672  
*The 2016 total includes a 11/9 payment of $5,672, reported as bonus & mileage reimbursement

During the final months of the same campaign, Glenn paid his daughter Ashley $13,000 for “grassroots consulting.” He also paid her $1000 per month for “social media consulting.” He made two payments of $1000 to Northrup Glenn’s  son from a previous marriage, Kevin Cruz for “campaign consulting:”

Year Amount Payee Purpose(s)
2016 $13,000 Ashley Glenn Grassroots Consulting, Salary
2017 $6,000 Ashley Glenn Social Media Consulting
2017 $2,000 Andrew Cruz Campaign Consulting
TOTAL $21,000  

In 2014, Glenn ran a successful campaign for the Board of County Commission, where he paid $10,000 to his daughter Ashley, nearly half of the $24,000 spent during the whole cycle. The payments were made in October and November in $5000 installments, right at the end of the campaign, which Glenn won by 60 points. According to Glenn, the payments were made for social media and marketing.

Glenn has had issues with improperly handling excessive campaign contributions, too. According to FEC records, Glenn received several donations in excess of amount legally permitted during his 2016 Senate bid. Federal law requires the refunding of excessive donations within 60 days. Instead, Glenn held onto the donations until after the election ended:

Wilson, Evan Grassroots Consulting – Bonus 11/9/16 $3,000.00
TOTAL $47,662.68

In late November 2016, Glenn’s campaign cut Glenn a check for $70,815 according to FEC records. The check was refunded a week later, and the campaign declared it a mistaken payment in its finance report. Here is the receipt for the returned payment:

Big League Politics reported earlier today that Glenn is currently paying himself out of his campaign contributions and loaning the money back to his campaign. The move, while legal, is shifty and will allow Glenn to pay himself nearly $90,000 after the campaign ends.

Why Is George Soros Buying Up The New York Times?

Published

on

According to recent filings to the US Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC), billionaire globalist George Soros, through his investment firm, Soros Fund Management LLC, has purchased over $3 million-worth of stock holdings in the New York Times.

This purchase is the first that the liberal financier has made since 2007, when Soros bought $470,000 worth of shares in the newspaper. This recent investment includes purchasing 126,400 shares valued at $3,046,000. Soros’s purchase was for Class A stock holdings which are publicly traded-as opposed to its Class B stock, which are privately held.

The May 15th filing can be viewed here: https://www.sec.gov/Archives/edgar/data/1029160/000114036118023894/xslForm13F_X01/form13fInfoTable.xml

Vice president of business and culture at the Media Research Center, Dan Gainor, found that in 2011, Soros pushed a minimum of $48 million into media ventures that included “journalism schools, investigative journalism and even industry organizations” over the course of just eight years. “Soros has long had influence or given direct funding to a wide range of journalism operations from NPR to ProPublica,” Gainor said. “This is still a big step to be buying a $3 million stake in the top liberal outlet in America.”

The controversial billionaire’s influence in mainstream media doesn’t stop there. The Hungarian-American self proclaimed “philanthropist” has ties to over 30 mainstream news outlets – including the Associated Press, Washington Post, NBC and ABC. Soros’s Open Society Institute is reported to have funded seven different investigative reporting projects including the Columbia University’s School of Journalism-receiving $600,000 from Soros, the Center for Investigative Reporting, the Center for Public Integrity and the New Orleans’ ‘The Lens’. Soros also funds the Committee to Protect Journalists, The National Federation of Community Broadcasters and the National Association of Hispanic Journalists.

His fascination with controlling the media is something that the billionaire has always shown interest in, but now as one of the world’s richest men, he’s able to fulfill his dreams all while using it to unapologetically, and openly attack the right.

In author and New York Times veteran, Michael T. Kaufman’s book entitled “Soros: The Life and Times of a Messianic Billionaire,” Soros has been intrigued by media since he was a young child with early interests into the field including “history or journalism or some form of writing.” He also had his own newspaper in his native Hungary, ‘The Lupa News’, which he served as “editor-in-chief and publisher”.

With all the billions of dollars that Soros has invested into trying to shape American politics and media, he is being forced to acknowledge his limits of influence.

Soros recently told The Washington Post that he was blindsided by President Donald Trump’s election. “Apparently, I was living in my own bubble.” He went on to explain why he thought Hillary Clinton lost the election, saying, “She was too much like a schoolmarm,” and that she was always “talking down to people…instead of listening to them.”

You can be sure of one thing, this is not the last we’ve heard from Soros who plans to reshape the public opinion through mainstream media publications and financially back a candidate in 2020 who shares his globalist agenda.

“The bigger the danger, the bigger the threat, the more I feel engaged to confront it,” added Soros. “So in that sense, yes, I redouble my efforts.”

Judicial Watch president, Tom Fitton said in a recent statement, Soros is a businessman and “shouldn’t be receiving taxpayer support to advance his radical left agenda to undermine freedom here at home and abroad.”
