ISIS’s Media Foundation Threatens NYC Subway, 2018 World Cup

Published

on

Graphic new propaganda posters show “lone-wolf” ISIS attackers targeting a subway station in New York City, and the World Cup, which will take place in Russia this summer.

“You will not expect where we attack,” says a poster from ISIS’s Wafa Media Foundation.

In graphic detail, it depicts a jihadist walking away from bundled sticks of dynamite and timer placed in New York’s High Street & Brooklyn Bridge subway station.

The group is placing new emphasis on “lone-wolf” attacks, as President Donald J. Trump has targeted and destroyed ISIS’s strongholds in the Middle East, severely limiting the group’s ability to organize.

A second poster recently released by Wafa shows a jihadist with an AK-47 emerging from an explosion in a soccer stadium.

“Putin, you disbeliever,” the poster says. “You will pay the price for killing Muslims.”

Wafa is likely referring to Russian President Vladimir Putin’s alliance with Syrian President Bashar al-Assad, who has focused on driving ISIS out of Syria.

The new threats emerge just months after Wafa reminded Americans of last October’s attack in Las Vegas, for which the American public still is unaware of a motive.

“The disbeliever west will see our power through the jihad of sincere people and the sacrifice of monotheists,” the poster, released in January, says. “We will be generous in shedding your dirty blood unless you embrace Islam or give the jizyah. However, the Las Vegas massacre is not far from you.”

ISIS had threatened Las Vegas prior to last October’s attack, and took credit for the attack several times. In the absence of a real explanation from authorities regarding Stephen Paddock’s sudden rampage, many have speculated that ISIS was involved.

Though ISIS has nearly been destroyed in the Middle East, the possibility of attacks by solo jihadists is in the West is still a distinct possibility.

Official Russian Press Story Does Not Match World Cup Car Attack Footage

Published

on

In what might be an attempt to quell the fears of guests at the World Cup in Moscow, Russian press has described an apparent car attack by a Kyrgyzstani national that injured eight as a “tragic accident.”

But video of the incident tells a different story:

WATCH:

Police have released an interrogation tape in which the cabbie claims that he tried to brake in order to let a pedestrian cross the street, but pressed the gas pedal instead, accelerating into the crowd. The driver claims that he was tired after 20 straight hours of work, which caused the error.

But the video clearly shows that there was no pedestrian in the street for the driver to avoid. It also shows the cabbie running from the vehicle after plowing through the crowd. He claimed that he was afraid of “being killed” after the incident.

Some of Russia’s state media has ignored the story altogether.

Terror group ISIS has threatened the 2018 World Cup as a potential target several times. Big League Politics reported in April:

“A second poster recently released by Wafa shows a jihadist with an AK-47 emerging from an explosion in a soccer stadium:

‘Putin, you disbeliever,’ the poster says. ‘You will pay the price for killing Muslims.’

Wafa is likely referring to Russian President Vladimir Putin’s alliance with Syrian President Bashar al-Assad, who has focused on driving ISIS out of Syria”

BLP Passage Ends. 

“We don’t know what happened and just because this guy is from Kyrgyzstan does not mean he is a terrorist,” said Mark Galeotti, a security expert. “But we also know that we can’t trust the official Russian line.”

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:

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.”
