Back in the fall of 2010, the question was, what was up with FBI outreach to known-Hamas-op Kifah Mustapha? Everybody at a Washington intelligence conference this week told me to ask the FBI. So I did.

I wrote the following column about their answers:

"They Call It Intelligence" October 7, 2010

Reading Patrick Poole's splashy coverage of the FBI's VIP treatment of Kifah Mustapha -- a known Hamas operative and unindicted co-conspirator in the landmark Holy Land Foundation terror financing trial -- will make your head spin with this dizzying question:

How could the same officials charged with securing the nation against the very terrorism Mustapha's activities supported (as laid out in court documents filed by federal investigators) have possibly invited him into the top-secret National Counterterrorism Center (NCTC) and the FBI's training center at Quantico during a six-week "Citizen's Academy" hosted by the FBI as "outreach" to the Muslim community?

"The plugs had to...

Watching Sen. Cruz question DHS Secretary Jeh Johnson about the absence of the word, "jihad," the enemy threat doctrine of our "homeland's" most lethal enemy, in the latest government security and strategy documents, I am struck anew by how very long this official effort to suppress the facts about Islam (not, not, not "Radicalislam") has been going on -- throughout the Obama administration, of course, but long before it began. This battle of suppression was already being waged when on September 17, 2001 President George W. Bush told the nation, "Islam is peace." Soon he would send armies into that Islamic world of peace to do battle, wholly ignorant of Islamic war, or jihad.

All these years later, the campaign is still a success -- if, that is, the point is to protect Islam, not the "homeland" from Islamic attack.

When it comes to Big Lies about Islam, nothing much has changed except...

Even as former Ambassador Thomas Pickering has been deservedly thrashed in the media for "taking money from Boeing while vocally supporting the Iran nuclear deal" -- the same Boeing that recently inked a $25 billion passenger jet deal with Tehran -- his old striped pants have barely been creased. The Pickering facade of Grand Old Diplomat remains in place, if now a little crooked.

But there is so much more to Pickering than his many diplomatic posts, however lofty they may seem to reporters including Betsy Woodruff at the Daily Beast, who broke the Boeing-Pickering-Iran story of hot and greasy...

Through the good offices of Gates of Vienna, below is a translation from the Russian of Vladimir Bukovsky's recent column on Brexit, written for the Ukrainian publication Gordon. The translation is by by D@rLin|{, and I am very grateful to have it.

PUBLICATIONS  “Gordon’s exclusive”

Bukovsky: As soon as Ukraine got rid of USSR’s yoke, it started asking to join the EU. This is incredibly dumb!

The EU – a huge and insanely expensive bureaucracy, like the Soviet Union was. Great Britain finally understood that and voted to leave the EU, which is doomed to fail. So thinks the author and journalist Vladimir Bukovsky, who has lived in England for the past 40 years. In his “Gordon” column, the former Soviet dissident explains why everyone, except Russia, will benefit...

Vladimir Bukovsky's illuminating arguments against the "soft" totalitarianism of the European Union are well known. (In fact, I discuss them in American Betrayal.) If you have not heard him point out the many startling similarities between the EU and the Soviet Union, do watch this short video.

"There is an alternative to being ruled by those two dozen self-appointed officials in Brussels," as he has long said. "It is called independence."

On asking Bukovsky for a comment on the Brexit vote for British independence, the first forceful strike ever against the post-WWII, global, New World Order, he passed along the following:

 



 On deck: Nexit and Frexit.
