Meanwhile, Hillary Clinton goes unindicted and is running for President of the United States.

As my good friend LA Sunset opined this morning at Z's site:
People are going to be charged with a felony for transporting Spotted Cow beer from Wisconsin and selling it in Minnesota. But somehow she [Hillary Rodham Clinton] is still roaming the earth in ugly pantsuits, after committing some of the most egregious crimes against the United States of America.

Welcome to the Twilight Zone.

Horrific Local Story

On Friday, February 5. 2016, Deonte Carraway, a volunteer aide at Judge Sylvania Woods Elementary School in Prince George's County, Maryland, was arrested on charges of manufacturing pornographic videos of children.  At least some of the videos were made on the school grounds during school hours.  Carraway has confessed to making the videos and faces ten felony counts.

There are at least 10 victims, ranging in age from 9 to 13. Police expect that there are more victims and are asking the public to check their children's social media platforms and cell phones.

The story doesn't end there.

Carraway also worked as a volunteer with children at an aquatic center, in a youth choir, and at a community center.

And the story doesn't end there, either.

We read this a few days later:
A lawsuit filed against Prince George’s County Public Schools claims that the predatory behavior of a volunteer aide, who is now facing child sex abuse and child pornography charges, was well known by students, teachers and parents and even reported to the school’s principal.

[...]

The suit says that other county school children also were sexually abused by Carraway, who coerced and pressured the students to engage in sex acts with the 22-year-old man on school property during the school day. Also, Carraway coerced the children into engaging in sexual acts with each other, according to the lawsuit.

He used locations such as the auditorium and bathrooms to film the acts on his cellphone. Videos found by police date back from early 2015 and continued until last week.

[...]

According to the suit, teachers expressed concerns about Carraway to Williams before Carraway began to abuse the 9-year-old boy....
The principal, whose salary range appears to be $98,500-$136,349, has now been placed on administrative leave, with salary and benefits intact while the investigation is ongoing. Educational malpractice pays.

What a world!

And why didn't Principal Michelle Williams follow protocol and contact the police when the first allegation was made — especially since the allegation was made against a volunteer aide?

DHS Whistleblower


Something that has been rumbling below the radar as Americans have been focused on the 2016 National Election and Super Bowl 50:

DHS ordered me to scrub records of Muslims with terror ties by Philip Haney, who worked for the Department of Homeland Security for fifteen years (dated February 5, 2016).

Excerpt:
...As the number of successful and attempted Islamic terrorist attacks on America increased, the type of information that the Obama administration ordered removed from travel and national security databases was the kind of information that, if properly assessed, could have prevented subsequent domestic Islamist attacks like the ones committed by Faisal Shahzad (May 2010), Detroit “honor killing” perpetrator Rahim A. Alfetlawi (2011); Amine El Khalifi, who plotted to blow up the U.S. Capitol (2012); Dzhokhar or Tamerlan Tsarnaev who conducted the Boston Marathon bombing (2013); Oklahoma beheading suspect Alton Nolen (2014); or Muhammed Yusuf Abdulazeez, who opened fire on two military installations in Chattanooga, Tennessee (2015).

It is very plausible that one or more of the subsequent terror attacks on the homeland could have been prevented if more subject matter experts in the Department of Homeland Security had been allowed to do our jobs back in late 2009. It is demoralizing—and infuriating—that today, those elusive dots are even harder to find, and harder to connect, than they were during the winter of 2009.
What are the possible reasons that the Obama administration ordered the scrubbing of those records?  I can think of two:

1.  The above-mentioned individuals were being used as exploitation platforms.

2.  The Obama administration is Islamophilic to the point of whitewashing Islam.

Other reasons?

Invasion Via "Refugees": Faking being a Syrian refugee for asylum in Europe

Worth the less than two minutes needed to watch this video, especially appropriate after Obama's February 3, 2016, visit to a Baltimore mosque with ties to terrorism and Islamic supremacism — and tacit gender apartheid (Asra Q. Nomani and Ify Okoyein in the New York Times):


At Bookroom, we read this:
...The refugees are acting as they are, not because they see themselves as charity cases, but because they see themselves as conquerors.

They know perfectly well that one doesn't defecate in a pool in which people (especially children) are swimming. They're doing it because they are performing the literal equivalent of the expression "I don't give a sh[*]t about you."

They know you're not supposed to rape women . . . that is, unless those women are the products of conquest, in which case raping them is one of Mohamed's commandments.

It's almost funny seeing Europeans trying politely to teach their conquerors how not to treat those whom they have conquered. I wonder how long it will take before the Europeans figure out that they're no longer in the driver's seat. And then I wonder whether they'll be able or willing to mount a counter-strike, or whether the twelve-hundred year-long Islamic jihad against Europe will finally have succeeded....
Europe is doomed.

And America is not far behind.

Curbing Crime?

Headline at the Associated Press on February 2, 2016:

DC bill would pay people stipends not to commit crimes.

Apparently a similar program in Richmond, California, provides up to $9,000 per person per year to those in the program, initiated in 2007.

According to the above-cited article:

"Europe is at war"


The ex-president of the Czech Republic explains that Europe is at war in this subtitled video worth one minute of your time:



This travesty is, in large part, Angela Merkel's fault for throwing open the doors. What is wrong with that woman?

Germany now:

Residents Flee Pool After Migrants Masturbate Into Jacuzzi, Defecate In Kid’s Pool, Invade Girls Changing Rooms

and

German government admits it cannot account for 600,000 of its 1.1million Muslim “refugees”

and

Germans Battle Refugee Sex Assaults With Signs, Cartoons.


Screen shot from that last link:


This kind of forbidden sign is needed in 21st Century Europe? Really?

With thanks to Baysider for the video below:


Just a few years ago, could many Westerners have imagined that all this would be happening in the 21st Century West?

We Americans should consider how unimaginable the situation in Europe has so rapidly become before comforting ourselves by proclaiming, "This kind of thing could never happen in the United States!"

Never say never.

Insanity Rules The Day!

The Scream by Edvard Munch (1863-1944)

To this we have come: shooting the messenger.

Read Houston Grand Indicts David Daleiden [the pro-life activist who planned and organized the undercover sting videos] For Organ Trafficking, Issues No Charges Against Planned Parenthood

The pro-life activist is trafficking in organs?

Are you kidding me?

And here's even more insanity — and corruption:
Lauren Reeder, a Harris County prosecutor, has been a board member for Planned Parenthood since 2013 and a fundraiser since 2009.
Ms. Reeder didn't recuse herself?

To top it all off, the announcement about the indictment was released last night, but the actual indictment document has not been released as of this posting.

Our nation is circling the drain.

History's Take?

Not quite accurate, but you get the point, I'm sure.

One of my recent Facebook finds:


White House says it's “entirely likely” and “even expected” that Iran will use the released funds for terrorism (video posted January 21, 2016):


Article III, Sec. 3 of the US Constitution states:
Treason against the United States, shall consist...in adhering to their enemies, giving them aid and comfort....
