The Anti-Defamation League Must Go

ADL 2020

The Anti-Defamation League (ADL) was founded in 1913 by B’nai B’rith to address the rise in institutionalized anti-Semitism in the US in 1900s. In this regard it shared many traits with other early twenty century American Irish and Italian civic fraternities. The ADL’s original mission statement was:

“To stop the defamation of the Jewish people, and to secure justice and fair treatment to all.”  This mission was extended to the ultimate goal of: “a world in which no group or individual suffers from bias, discrimination or hate.”

The ADL used to be apolitical and did a decent job in upholding their mission statement but eventually, it got entangled in progressive politics and has been gradually losing its relevance. In 2015, shortly after it recruited Jonathan Greenblatt, the current CEO, the ADL shed its political nonpartisanship affiliation and morphed into a full blown, far left auxiliary tool of the progressive elements of the Democrat party. The Irony of this move seems to have been lost on Mr. Greenblatt, as this is the same Jew hating element of the democratic party that was behind the lynching of Leo Frank—the event that triggered the formation of the ADL in the first place.

The Lynching of Leo Frank

The leaders of the lynching party were all members of the KKK and senior Democratic party officials in Marietta, Georgia. The act was cheered by local newspaper publishers like Tom Watson—a supporter of the Socialist Party of America, who also openly identified as a white supremacist. Frank’s kidnaping and murder was overseen by judge Newton Morris (who In 1891, at the age of 22, was charged with attempted murder and cattle rustling in California) and was carried out by over 40 notables such as: Joseph Mackey Brown, former governor of Georgia; Eugene Herbert Clay, former mayor of Marietta and later president of the Georgia Senate; E. P. Dobbs, mayor of Marietta; Moultrie McKinney Sessions; lawyer and banker, a clergyman, two former Superior Court justices, several Cobb County sheriffs, and various ‘professionals’.

The ADL still promotes itself as a social moral compass but it has become quite the opposite. These days, it resembles a massive money laundering and an organized crime extortion machine. In 2016, it fundraised over $67 million. During the 2016 Charlottesville marches alone, it raised $11 million. Between its unlimited cash and its undeserved legacy reputation, the ADL has turned into one of the leading political king makers and serves as an advisor to elected officials and an arbitrator in all matters related to civil rights and what should or shouldn’t be considered anti-Semitism.

Despite paying lip service, since 2015, the ADL has done virtually nothing to fight the flood of anti-Semitism which now comes almost entirely from the ranks of the progressive left, MSM outlets like the NYTimes, and Muslim Brotherhood affiliated organizations. Instead, under Greenblatt’s leadership, the ADL has been targeting imaginary white supremacists, conservatives, and the state of Israel. Yup, you read that correctly: the ADL—which started its life as a defensive Jewish league—has actually turned into one of the leading enablers/apologists of anti-Semitism and is now playing footsie with the BDS movement.

A Trojan named Jonathan Greenblatt
Appointing Jonathan Greenblatt as ADL’s CEO wasn’t coincidental. Rather, it was part of a wave of the red green alliance takeover of a large number of US civic organizations. Greenblatt is a hardcore democrat loyalist and shares the same DNA/scruples with the likes of Debbie Wasserman Schultz. Before he was parachuted behind enemy lines into the ADL, Greeblatt established his reputation as a battle hardened veteran of the Clinton and Obama administrations. He was a Special Assistant to president Obama and the Director of the Office of Social Innovation and Civic Participation (SICP) in the United States Domestic Policy Council. As director, he led the office’s efforts to utilize human capital and financial capital (concept copied from the soviet People’s Commissariat).

Funding and information warfare platforms 
A part of Greenblatt’s new political realignment for the ADL included getting funding from progressive big-tech sources like Pier Omidyar (founder of eBay), who also funds the internet censorships industry and many of the leading anti-Trump initiatives including Defeat Disinfo. As can be seen from the linages below, Defeat Disinfo is a member of a large network of political information warfare platforms focused entirely on attacking the Trump/his administration and defeating him in the 2020 elections.

Hougland, currently works on multiple large scale initiatives to censor and block conservative content and users on social media. One of Hougland’s companies, Graphika, is also used by social media platforms like Facebook, Twitter, and Google to detect and mass delete “deepfake” and “fake news” content

Decompiling several projects like Defeat Disinfo, shows that their network of enablers and operators includes a large number of retired and currently serving high ranking US military personal. On August 11, 2020 DefenseOne published an open letter by two retired U.S. Army lieutenant colonels, John Nagl and Paul Yingling to General Milley, the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff. The letter includes multiple false statements like the following:

“There can be little doubt that Mr. Trump is facing electoral defeat. More than 160,000 Americans have died from COVID 19, and that toll is likely to rise to 300,000 by November. One in ten U.S. workers is unemployed, and the U.S. economy in the last quarter suffered the greatest contraction in its history. Nearly 70 percent of Americans believe the country is on the wrong track. The Economist estimates that Mr. Trump’s chances of losing the election stand at 91 percent.”

The two lieutenant colonels openly called for a coup d’état in order to remove the president by force. Not surprisingly, the two are active members of McChrystal’s Defeat Disinfo initiative. But, these military linkages go even deeper. Paul Yingling, one of the two publishers is also a close friend of Lt. Gen. H.R. McMaster and was his deputy commander in Iraq. If you are not familiar with McMaster’s little conspirator club, he managed Alexander Vindman and Eric Ciaramella, the Ukrainian whistleblower at the NSC. In 2017, Ciaramella, was McMaster’s special assistant.

A week later on August 17, 2020, in another DefenseOne publication by Thomas Crosbie titled: Six Scenarios for Military Intervention After January 2020, Crosbie provided a step-by-step playbook for the upcoming coup d’état. Again, analyzing Crosbie’s network shows the same Defeat Disinfo linkages.

The presence of senior ‘retired military’ DNA and fingerprints in the 2020 election information warfare theater (where the ADL, NIF, and J Street are active) should raise a lot of questions. Four obvious ones are:

  1. Why is the Pentagon tolerating DARPA sponsored information warfare tools being used in the US for political targeting of the administration and the president?
  2. Why does the Pentagon and the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff tolerate blatant violations of Article 88 in the UCMJ?—Which clearly states that:
    Any commissioned officer who uses contemptuous words against the President, the Vice President, Congress, the Secretary of Defense, the Secretary of a military department, the Secretary of Transportation, or the Governor or legislature of any State, Territory, Commonwealth, or possession in which he is on duty or present shall be punished as a court-martial may direct.”
  3. Why does the DOJ, Secretary of Defense, and the Pentagon permit completely false statements like ‘…Trump’s suggesting that injecting bleach or other household disinfectants could be a treatment for the novel coronavirus’ to be published, out of all places, in US military news outlets like Stars and Stripes?
  4. Why are US non-profits like the ADL, J Street, and NIF allowed to engage in extreme partisan political activity?

The new ADL ideology
Ideologically, Greenblatt is a ‘cash on delivery’ kind of a guy. In 2016, he wrote a pro BDS essay praising Steven Levitsky and Glen Weyl and their call for a boycott of Israel. The same year Greenblatt wrote a foreign policy piece targeting Israel. In it, he argued that Israel was falsely claiming that the Palestinians were advocating for “ethnic cleansing” in Judea and Samaria (which they do, not a false claim at all). Greenblatt’s ‘expert source’ for his claims was Stefanie Fox from the Jewish Voice for Peace (JVP), a leading extremist left wing Jewish BDS organization. JVP has a $3.2 M budget and a massive 200K member outreach program. This cross pollination is not unusual, as Greenblatt’s has a long tradition of affiliation with subversive left wing organizations. While serving in the Obama WH, he worked with the leadership of Avaaz and other leading anti-American and anti-Israel groups like J Street and the NIF.

Leading the internet censorship movement
In 2018, Greenblatt established the ADL Center for Technology and Society (CTS) and received a $1.75M payment from Pierre Omidyar (founder of eBay). Despite CTS’s wholesome and organic title, it is little more than an information warfare platform used for massive censorship, influence operations, and political targeting. Not surprisingly, the members of the CTS advisory board include disinformation specialists like Shawn Henry, the president of Crowdstrike and the brain behind the fake DNC Russian hack and Eli Pariser, the co-founder of Avaaz.

ADL pays lip service to being apolitical, but it exhibits clear extreme left-wing bias through every aspect of its organizational structure and function. For example, its Belfer Fellows program is staffed entirely with pure political appointees like:

  • Naveed Jamali – An MSM talking head who made a name for himself promoting the Trump Russian collusion narrative
  • Dr. Molly Crockett – A psychologist who promoted the theory that Trump was elected because 60 million people wanted to “punish others—even at a personal cost to themselves” 
  • Dr. Amy Zhang – An assistant professor at the University of Washington who promoted Antifa propaganda and called for “the white house to disavow white supremacy”.

A quick tour down rabbit hole of one progressive organization
Greenblatt is a collaborator and a friend of Eli Pariser, the co-founder of Avaaz. In 2015, Avaaz’s Hebrew language webpage featured a call to support the campaign by Daphne Leif and other ‘pro-peace’ and progressive leaders of the ‘occupy’ and ‘tent-protest’ movements.

The idea of an American nonprofit NGO like Avaaz (which is interestingly headquartered in London and Canada) is meddling in the internal affairs of a sovereign country should raise a huge red flag. And, so should Avaaz’s ability to operate an international underground railroad for the supply of foreign left wing activist during the Obama administration. One illustration of how this maze of progressive organizations operates word-wide can be found in Raluca Ganea, one of Avaaz’s senior campaigner. Ganea, in addition to her work with Avaaz, also operated in a number of other international extreme left-wing organizations such as the NIF, Shutafut-Sharaka – where she worked as a senior media coordinator.  

Shutafut-Sharaka is made up of a group of organizations (mostly EU and Soros funded) that include the NIF ‘Shatil’, the Araham Fund Initiative, Sikkui and Agenda – a “Centre for Strategic Communications” which includes among its management Rachel Liel (also director of the NIF) and Oriella Ben Zvi (of Ben Or Consulting—a firm she founded together with J Street’s president Jeremy Ben Ami (a former senior Clinton advisor). On October 17, 2018, Jeremy Ben Ami and his J Street senior leadership met with the leading holocaust denier Mahmoud Abbas and expressed support for him and PA Minister Hussein al-Sheikh–this was just days after al-Sheikh personally authorized a grisly terror attack in Jerusalem. In that attack, the terrorists murdered 3 Jews, including a Jewish woman who was pregnant with twins, and injured 100 others. Just a few months after the terror attack, in August 2019, J Street was also leading the charge in promoting and shielding Ilhan Omar and Rashida Tlaib.

Rachel Liel was active in her role at NIF in international fundraising for the occupy and tent-protest movements. Raluca Ganea in the past has also used Avaaz to promote her views on other political issues such as the deportation of illegal African workers and the “aggressive Judaization of East Jerusalem“, urging Avaaz members to participate in the weekly demonstrations organized by the Sheikh Jarrah Solidarity Movement. That organization’s leader, Sara Benninga, was the recipient of an ‘Honoring Our Heroes’ award at the J Street conference in the US in February 2011. Liel, Benninga, and others also worked on creating untraceable funding methods via the Luminate and Arabella platforms and by using the NIF and J Street pipelines for laundering foreign political donations.

These operations were executed by routing large payments via domestic <-> foreign
<-> domestic bank accounts such as:

Avaaz, NIF, and J Street, and the incestuous political commune
Avaaz is engaged in promoting the agenda of the red green alliance and post-modern organizations, like Antifa, BLM, and B’Tselem. These organization in turn are tightly coupled and connected to the NIF and J Street and to two of Avaaz’s founders on the J Street advisory council, and Tom Perriello who had his 2008 election campaign endorsed and financed by J Street. Perriello just like Greenblatt, is a former a senior Obama official. He is now the executive director for U.S. programs at Soros’ Open Society Foundations.

Avaaz the BDS and Hamas agent
In 2009, during Operation Cast Lead, Avaaz ran a large media campaign entitled “Gaza: Stop the Bloodshed” calling for a ceasefire and re-opening of the borders and crossings and ending the blockade of Gaza. No reference was made to the thousands of Hamas rockets which terrorized Israeli civilians for years before the operation and no explanation given as to why a blockade was necessary to prevent the smuggling of arms to Gaza.  At the time, the following statement appeared on the Avaaz website:

“The people of Gaza are being squeezed to death. This week’s blackouts have finally reached the attention of the world — and the international community could help end the blockade. Our obligation is clear. This isn’t about Israel vs Palestine or Hamas vs Fatah: this is about 1.5 million human beings locked up in the biggest prison on earth…. The humanitarian crisis of sealed-off Gaza is only getting worse, and a rain of missiles is falling.”

In 2010, Avaaz firmly pinned its colors to the mast of the Turkish terror ship Mavi Marmara when it launched a petition calling for world leaders to:

“investigate the raid, end the blockade”, and describing the IHH/Muslim Brotherhood-organised flotilla as “humanitarian”.

Avaaz was also promoting a petition in support of Mahmoud Abbas’ unilateral declaration of a Palestinian state. Part of its campaign included a video analyzed by Andre Obler who concluded that:

  • Avaaz’s Israel-related campaigns were heavily biased and deceitful
  • The Avaaz web based “instant click to sign” policy encouraged its members to add their names to any US political petition without providing any background information on the issue
  • That Avaaz engaged visitors by means charged emotional language, and the promise of belonging to a “community” which “empowers” them and the plea to “tell your friends” 

These classic astroturfing campaigns were done on behalf of organizations such as Hamas, BDS, and Muslim Brotherhood affiliates like CAIR by promoting their objectives and parroting their anti-American and anti-Israel narratives.

The reason why Avaaz and the ADL function as a progressive and Islamic mouthpieces can be traced to Avaaz’s founding members and their roles as paid foreign agents.

Paul Hilder
Image 10: Paul Hilder, one of the creators/promoters of the script that became “The Great Hack”, a paid propaganda piece that claimed that Trump hacked the 2016 elections using stolen data, futuristic analytics, and that the minds of millions of voters “were hacked” and manipulated to vote for him

Avaaz’a resident Middle East expert is Paul Hilder, a foreign intelligence asset and author of an 2009 article promoted by Avaaz titled “Gaza is Dying”. Hilder was employed by Oxfam in the position of campaign manager; he also worked in the same role for Avaaz and has written about online social activism for the Guardian. Like another Avaaz co-founder, Ben Brandzel, he is a board member of the British online progressive campaign organization ‘38 Degrees’, and the co-founder of ‘openDemocracy‘.

Paul Hilder and the political revolution
Image 11: Paul Hilder’s profile and his strategy for defeating Trump

Hilder’s credentials as a ‘progressive’ social justice activist and Middle East expert make him a favorite on the international conference circuit as well as in the MSM. One less-known fact about Hilder’s resume is that at the same time as he was employed by Avaaz, he also worked as Policy Director for the Middle East Policy Initiative Forum—a collaboration between the Oxford Research Group and the ‘Conflicts Forum’—on an EU-funded report entitled “From Crisis to Opportunity. The Conflicts Forum’s stated mission was:

“From Crisis to Opportunity” aims to support a new, inclusive approach to the Arab-Israeli conflict by opening consultations among legitimate yet opposed stakeholders through civil society-brokered dialogue, analysis and engagement. The goal is to explore accommodations grounded in real support in the societies. The action will engage rooted elements of Palestinian and Israeli society and stakeholders from the wider region, including faith-based movements. “

Ben Brandzel
Image 12: Ben Brandzel an Open Society Foundations funded expert in the formation of NGO fronts for international violent militant organizations  

Just like Paul Hilder, Ben Brandzel doesn’t limit himself to only promoting jihadi terrorist organizations like Hamas and Hezbollah, he also runs multiple Antifa style organizations. Here is a small sampling: Brandzel was one of Leadnow’s original founding advisors. At the same time, he was the Director of strategic incubation at the Citizen Engagement Laboratory (CEL) based in Oakland, California, and an advisor to the The Tides Foundation (“Tides”). Timeline wise, CEL began its operations in 2008, the same year during which Tides began to fund its anti-pipeline, “Tar Sands Campaign.” The Tides Foundation was fully sponsored by Soros’ Open Society Foundations.  In 2011, Brandzel came to Canada to set up Leadnow as part of the CEL’s strategic Incubation program for grassroots revolutionary action organizations.

One of CEL’s sponsored projects was the Online Progressive Engagement Network (OPEN). Ben Brandzel was its director. OPEN describes itself as “a sisterhood of grassroots campaigning organizations from around the world.” As it appears, the CEL bundled its strategic projects—including Leadnow—into OPEN. Just like with all these other NGO’s, in 2014, Soros’ Open Society Foundation donated $100,000 to “OPEN”.  

So what does this spaghetti of NGOs, projects, and activist mean? The answer is that to the naked eye, the people behind them may seem to be geography separated and unrelated, but in fact, they all know each other, communicate with each other, draw funds from the same sources, and belong to a world-wide umbrella of Soros funded progressive political initiatives.  

Bring in the Iranians
Hilder’s and Brandzel Conflicts Forum was co-founded and directed by the former MI6 officer Alistair Crooke. Crooke, who doesn’t speak nor read Arabic or Farsi, is big on opining on the meaning of Arabic and Farsi words and ideology and claims that the negative perception of Iran is entirely attributed to the western failure to accept the benefits of revolutionary Islam.

Image 13: Alistair Crooke

The Conflicts Forum’s Board of Advisors includes Hamas supporter Azzam Tamimi, Ismail Patel of ‘Friends of Al Aqsa’, and Moazzam Begg of ‘Cageprisoners’. In describing the organization’s raison d’etre, Dr Jonathan Spyer stated that: 

“It describes its aim as opening “a new relationship between the West and the Muslim world.” A document published by this group explains their intended meaning is to bring about the basic change in Western perception and bring Hamas and Hezbollah into the mainstream. The document notes the need to build a “link-up between activist groups and mobilizers of opinion in order to shift the debate on Islamism from a predominantly defensive posture to a positive assertion of Islamist values and thinking.” It also suggests “articulation of Hamas’s and Hizballah’s values, philosophy and wider political and social programs… Being more proactive in statements and rephrasing discourse to focus on the positive aspects of Islamist ideology.”

A deeper dive into Crooke’s ideology shows a complete embrace of hard core doctrines of the Iranian ruling clique and strongly suggests that Conflicts Forum is likely either a front for Tehran or an intelligence influence operation of some sort. Crooke frequently promotes Russian interests in the Middle East and is also close to the Qatari royal family which has been funding his activity. According to Crooke, the true moderates in the Middle East are movements like Hamas and Hezbollah which are driving the philosophy of armed “resistance” (moqawama). Crooke claims that these movements were born in the Iranian Revolution and the more flexible intellectual traditions of Shia. He also argues that while Sunni Islam is based on a literal interpretation of the Koran, Shiite Islam is open to scholarly debate, which Crooke believes makes it more open to Hegelian dialectic style, philosophical discourse, and positive engagement with the west. He uses Hamas as an example of Sunnis who have been positively influenced by radical Shiite ideology.

Conflicts Forum sought to establish a “link-up between activist groups and mobilizers of opinion” and to “link with mass organizations in Western countries – social movements”. 

In a 2016 interview with Khamenei.IR (the official propaganda channel of the revolutionary guards) Crooke said:

“Imam Khomeini was an Islamic cleric, a philosopher and a poet of high standing: pursuing what is often a private and personal voyage of inner intellectualism. He somehow, incredibly, in the words of Jaques Berques, “took in hand his people” ; gave them healing, authenticity and a solution to their crisis. He gathered up a tradition and forged a new equilibrium: one which would offer renewal through a grand ‘sewing together’ of dispersed parts, making the present ‘an organic whole’, not some mere syncretic assembly of parts. The tradition, on which he drew, was of Mulla Sadra, Ibn Arabi, Mir Damad’s.”

Alastair Crooke

Conflicts Forum’s relationship with Paul Hilder and Ben Brandzel appears to have provided that much needed link-up/cross-over to the American NGO Avaaz. Avaaz and J Street subsequently became engaged in the organization and mobilization of world-wide petitions in complete accord with the Hamas narrative. In this context, Avaaz and J Street are the actual link-up/cross-over and demonstrate Iran’s successful public relations campaign to re-brand Islamist terrorist in the west as proponents of “social justice”. They also work to whitewash militant organizations like BLM and Antifa and arrange US speaking engagements for convicted terrorist like Leila Khaled

A glimpse in to the ADL’s & Open Society Foundations’ information warfare strategy
Over the past few years, the ADL and Open Society Foundations have been funding an analytics company named Network Contagion Research Institute (NCRI). The stated objective of NCRI is to hunt down ‘white supremacists’ on the internet and trace the sources of anti-Semitic and hate speech content. The company claims to have developed advanced AI based analytics capable of shifting through massive amount of data and identify linkages and trends. It’s difficult to verify any of their conclusions because of the proprietary nature of their datasets and algorithms. In general, most of their reports seem to be driven by a political agenda. None of their published results can be validated independently, cross verified, and be traced to specific targets—which is a crucial requirement when evaluating any source claim in intelligence.

In one NCRI publication titled: A Case Study on COVID-19, Bioweapon Myths, and the Asian Conspiracy Meme, their ‘scientific’ claims can be classified as paid Chinese propaganda.

What we can determine with a high degree of certainty is that:

  1. The NCRI organizational and leadership linkages show that they are working on and promoting political opposition research that is targeting Trump and his administration
  2. They are whitewashing Soros’ worldwide operations
  3. They are working on wide scale political censorship projects and are targeting conservatives
  4. They are promoting information warfare operations like the Lincoln Project and pro China Covid-19 narratives

Final thoughts
In the early 2000s, several US based Soros funded progressive NGOs such J Street, Avaaz, and NIF started developing a world-wide political influence and a political ‘justice’ network. These entities honed their subversive strategies and tactics attacking conservative movements and politicians in Europe and Israel. During the Obama administration and under the guidance of officials likes Greenblatt, these NGOs begun collaborating with extremist Islamist organizations and imported their activists/strategies/tactics (including Palestinian invented concepts like Pyro-Terrorism) to the US. Now, with a few exceptions, they guide and control subversive politicians like Ilhan Omar and Rashida Tlaib and the leading ‘violent riot justice’ movements.

Under Jonathan Greenblatt, the ADL, with the support of organizations like J Street has effectively been turned into a left wing agent saboteur that is promoting anti-American and anti-Israel agendas and shielding/whitewashing militant hate groups like BLM and Antifa. Starting in 2015, the ADL lost all of its credibility and is now fully engaged in wholesale defamation and censorship of conservatives and the wide-scale suppression of US free speech.

If you think that I’m over intellectualizing all these linkages (which are just the tip of the iceberg), I invite you to do a cursory examination of the organizations that now promote/support the ADL. Not surprisingly, you will find that they are made up of a coalition of the likes of The Democratic Socialists of America, the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR), the U.S. Campaign for Palestinian Rights, the Movement for Black Lives, Jewish Voice for Peace, Jews for Racial and Economic Justice, and many others ‘extreme’ justice organizations which have been fueling the riots across the US.

All good things must come to an end the ADL’s free 1st class ride on the moral train is no exception. The time has come to strip the ADL of its 501(c)(3) status and have the DOJ conduct a review of its dubious domestic and foreign political affiliations and funding sources. Considering the ADL’s close affiliation with organizations like Avaaz, J Street, OSF, and their leadership, they all should also be investigated for supporting terrorism, money laundering, and FARA violation.

If you are considering a donation to the ADL, J Street, NIF, or any other progressive Jewish organization, don’t’! Over fifty years ago, Martin Luther King Jr. wisely observed that:

When people criticize Zionists, they mean Jews. You’re talking anti-Semitism.

Terrorists in Suits: The ties between progressive NGOs and terrorist organizations

In Mahmoud  Abbas’ 1982 thesis, titled “al-Wajh al-Akhar: al-‘Alaqat as-Sirriya bayna an-Naziya wa’s-Sihyuniya” at the Peoples’ Friendship University of Russia, Abbas claims that the number of Jews killed during World War II was less than one million and that their death was a joint Zionist-Nazi plot. IT’s interesting to note that Abbas worked with the director of the Peoples’ Friendship University, Yevgeny Primakov. Primakov was one of the developers of the Soviet active measures doctrine and the masterminds behind of the most successful KGB disinformation initiatives called Operation INFEKTION.

Down the Discreditation Rabbit Hole

Down the Discreditation Rabbit Hole

Over the past few days an elaborate new on-line narrative has been gaining traction. It proposes that the death of George Floyd was a staged incident. Another claim is that Derek Chauvin, the Minneapolis police officer who arrested George Floyd is not the person currently in police custody and that the police officer seen in the images is, rather, the actor Benjamin Ray Bailey.

Derek Chauvin vs. Benjamin Ray Bailey
Image 1: Sample content misidentifying Derek Chauvin as the actor Benjamin Ray Bailey

One likely explanation for why this story is being circulated is that it’s part of a disinformation campaign similar to those of the  Eric Ciaramella misidentification, Ilhan Omar at an Antifa riot, and Need a Nazi for a project.

Derek Chauvin vs. Benjamin Bailey
Image 2: The results of various video analytics on the images of Derek Chauvin and Benjamin Ray Bailey

Regardless of the rationale behind this publication, O fellow fish citizens: beware of the bait! Hopefully the following conclusive results will put this little conspiracy to rest. 

  1. The Person of Interest 1 F (POI-1 F) identified as Derek Chauvin in the police booking images matched within 99% certainty the image of the uniformed police officer seen in the video kneeling on George Floyd.
  2. POI-1 F matched within 99% certainty the image of POI-2 identified as Derek Chauvin in the police booking images. 
  3. The ear geometry of POI-1 S identified in the police booking images as Derek Chauvin matched the officer in uniform seen kneeling on George Floyd within 97% certainty.

What is a Discreditation Operation?
Information discreditation is a form of character assassination and black propaganda. It entails the deliberate production and publication of information that is either completely or partially false and the distribution of such misinformation on various on-line or print platforms. Soon after the misinformation starts showing up in derivative works and news feeds, or reaches a certain level of engagement, the fabricator will point out the false information and use it to attack the credibility of the individual(s) who referenced it. The end result is that the false information ends up discrediting the people who shared and used it. Fact checker organizations like Snopes.com and  Factcheck.org, are some of the largest producers of this type of content.

Samples of Discreditation content

: Example of discreditation content currently in wide circulation 

The use of discreditation techniques can be illustrated via some of the QAnon affiliated user content on social media and how its being leveraged to censor conservative political speech. Platforms like Facebook, Twitter, and YouTube permit vile anti-Semitic, anti-Catholic, and pro-jihadi materials to circulate widely for months on their platforms (this is despite the fact that they have the AI to instantly intercept and block it). As these materials spread throughout various communities and gain traction, the platforms take note of the users that view it and then censor them on the grounds that they are affiliated with the conspiratorial materials.

As many conservative users have discovered over the past three years, they don’t have to post anything controversial to get banned. Their only crime is that they viewed ‘subversive’ materials (which ironically, at least some them are produced by US based progressive propagandists as bait). Suspiciously, these propagandist continue to operate on these platforms even after the legitimate users are banned.

*** Update 06/12/2020 ***
Apparently, the current Derek Chauvin conspiracy theory has spawned another conspiracy theory which claims that George Floyd’s fiancé, Courtney Ross, is actually Derek Chauvin. Running the analytics on her verified image shows that the image of Courtney does not match Chauvin on gender, age, nor facial features.

Gunfight at the O.K. Corral 2020

Gunfight at the O.K. Corral

In the final year of English Civil War (1642-1651), Thomas Hobbes wrote in his book Leviathan:

“Whatsoever therefore is consequent to a time of Warre, where every man is Enemy to every man; the same is consequent to the time, wherein men live without other security, than what their own strength, and their own invention shall furnish them withall. In such condition, there is no place for Industry; because the fruit thereof is uncertain: and consequently no Culture of the Earth; no Navigation, nor use of the commodities that may be imported by Sea; no commodious Building; no Instruments of moving, and removing things as require much force; no Knowledge of the face of the Earth; no account of Time; no Arts; no Letters; no Society; and which is worst of all, continuall feare, and danger of violent death; And the life of man solitary, poore, nasty, brutish, and short.”   Leviathan, Chapter XIII – The Cost of War

Leviathan deals with the legitimacy of government and is one of the earliest treatises about the theory of social contracts. Hobbes observed that civil war and the brutal state of existence it creates (bellum omnium contra omnes–”the war of all against all”) can only be avoided with a strong central government.

The fundamental assertion of the social contract theory is that law and political order are not natural, but man-made. The political order that the social contract provides is a means to an end—it benefits the individuals who participate in the contract. But this contract also has a key condition; it is valid only when each party fulfills their part of the agreement. Hobbes argued that citizens are not obligated to submit to the government when its ineffective in suppressing anarchy.

The argument of a contractual relationship was also supported by other leading political theorists like John Locke, who argued that when the government systematically fails to secure the individual’s natural rights, citizens can withdraw their obligation to obey the government and defend themselves. Locke believed that personal natural rights were inalienable and came from G-d (i.e., the rights to life, liberty, and property), and were supreme to the government’s authority (which also applies to homicidal Covid-19 mandates).

The Ride Into the Sunset
Several years ago our family decided to drive Route 66. Instead of finishing at the Santa Monica Pier, we opted for the southerly route and took a left-turn in Arizona. I cranked up the radio and to the tune of It’s another Tequilas Sunrise, headed into the burning desert sunset; final destination: Tombstone. We chose this destination as an educational aid for the kids, because this long-forgotten dusty town holds one of the most important civic and practical political science lessons that every American citizen should learn.

Route 66

: Destination Tombstone Arizona

On October 26, 1881, around 3:00 PM, two marshals and a deputy, stood up to the notorious Clanton gang in the small mining town of Tombstone, Arizona, and enforced the law that the local sheriff refused/was afraid to. The resulting shootout in THE alleyway next to the O.K. Corral Livery and Feed Company consisted of 30 rounds and lasted for about 30 seconds. This brief encounter became one of the most iconic gun fights in the west and has come to be known as “The Gunfight at the O.K. Corral”.

Gunfight location
Image 3: The map and site of the gunfight

Beyond the simple function of enforcing the law, the gunfight set in motion the doctrine that the US Marshal Service has operational authority everywhere in the US including state and local jurisdictions. It wasn’t by coincidence that when the service was looking for a visual to represent their mission, they chose the likeness of Wyatt Earp (one of marshals who fought in the gunfight) as a model for the “Frontier Marshal” statue.

Image 4: Wyatt Earp as an inspiration for the US Marshall Service Statue the “Frontier Marshal”

Regardless of place and time, the manner in which lawlessness thrives and spreads is always the same. Prior to the gunfight in Tombstone, Waytt’s brother, Virgil, said the following about the influence that the Clanton gang extorted on the town:

“This [large sums of money] is one reason they [the Clanton gang] have so many friends in town. All that large class of degraded characters who gather the crumbs of such carouses stand ready to assist them out of any trouble or into any paying rascality…They spend their money free as water.” 

In like manner, the mayor of New York city, Bill de Blasio, with the help of his funders/backers from coalition of Red-Green Alliance, is the primary enabler of the flames of lawlessness and anarchy that now engulfs the city. Just like the local sheriff in Tombstone, he issues directives to the NYPD and DA not to arrest, release, and not persecute the Antifa and BLM gangs of rioters and their leaders.

After we got back home from our trip, I wanted to help our kids visualize Hobbes’s abstract idea of the government’s role in the social contract and defending our natural rights. We decided to build a display case with some 1881 vintage Tombstone memorabilia. We packed the case with the following items:

  1. A US Marshal badge – Provide consistent nationwide law enforcement standards  
  2. A pocket watch – Deliver justice promptly, as, “Justice delayed is justice denied” 
  3. A silver dollar – Allocate adequate resources for enforcement
  4. A newspaper clip – Not manipulate public opinion via media leaks 
  5. A sliver bar mined in Tombstone – Protect private property and enterprise 
  6. A Colt revolver – Protect the 2nd amendment and facilitate open carry gun laws
  7. A sand bottle – Own up to mistakes, power without accountably is like quicksand
  8. A Reference to Deuteronomy 10:20 – The bible as the foundation our legal system & rights

Image 6: The moral of the “Gunfight at the O.K. Coral” story

Welcome to the Minneapolis Caliphate
We know that the Red-Green alliance is behind the riots and that they fully control BLM and related organizations like ANSWER and Antifa. On the surface, It may not be obvious, but what the alliance is trying to achieve has little to do with the much needed criminal justice system reforms. The real objective behind these riots is the creation of independent nation state enclaves styled after the one operated by the Nation of Islam in Chicago. In this vision of a domestic Liberia, these ‘autonomous zones’ will quickly expand into nearby neighborhoods, metastasizing and increase their size and political influence.

Due to the rapidly growing middle eastern and south American illegal immigrant population in many of our large cities, highly saturated ethnic centers such as LA, Dearborn, Minneapolis, Queens/Brooklyn are ripe for this takeover. The funding for the expansion and growth of these city-states already comes from organizations like Open Society Foundations and foreign sources such as Qatar and Turkey (through proxies like Mustafa Gulan), and south American drug cartels which have strategic interest in establishing bridgeheads in these locations.

If you think that this is some far fetched conspiracy theory, check out the city of Chicago. The west side is controlled by the narco cartels militias and the south side by the Nation of Islam’s fruit of Islam battalions (and some of their alter ego militias like the New Black Panther, Gangster Disciples, and Black Disciples). The Chicago PD doesn’t dare enter these enclaves because of the native’s superior fire power. The following causality stats illustrate just how these self-governed wild territories operate. Last week, between May 29 to June 1, 2020 (one weekend) Chicago had 85 shootings resulting in 24 people killed and 61 wounded. This is despite the fact that Chicago has one of the nation’s strictest gun laws. Not surprisingly, there were no BLM demonstrations in these locations in support of any of the 24 victims—many of which were innocent children and law abiding blacks.

The Fruit of Islam Militia

What’s in the Cards?
The danger of allowing the ‘autonomous zone’ to spread is the precedent it will create in large urban areas like Minneapolis, Portland, and Seattle. AOC’s, Ilhan Omar’s, and Keith Ellison’s attacks on the police and their calls to defund it are just an opening gambit in this game.

The rationale for these actions is that once local and federal law enforcement is out of these neighborhoods, the local warlords would be able to form ‘Mogadishu style’ militias that will (depending on the ethnic makeup of the city-state) include either a foreign army of “cartel sicarios” or “jihadi brothers”. Once entrenched, the leadership will shake down the locals and make demands for millions of dollars in ‘protection fees’ from the state using the ‘no justice, no peace’ model.

Once this happens, we can kiss goodbye US jurisdiction in these locations. An attempt to enforce the law through basic functions like serving a warrant will turn into a full-blown military confrontation—a risk that no politician or police force would dare to undertake. By the time that someone in DC finally wakes up and decides that we need to re-raise the American flag over these territories, they would have to conduct a house-to-house battle of Iowa Jima style operation.

What’s to Be Done? Or as Comrade Lenin Said Chto Delat?
We already know the funding sources of the Red-Green Alliance and who their leaders, organizers, and activists are. The time has come for the feds to act now! Anyone related to these organizations should be prosecuted, including leading media figures, academics, high-tech executives, and politicians. All foreign citizens involved in these subversive activities should be promptly detained and tried as enemy combatants by military tribunals.

They shouldn’t have the benefit of access to our court system—where they can drag the process for years. Any foreigners who are even remotely affiliated with the subversive political activity—including foreign reporters/students/UN staff/diplomats—should have their visas promptly canceled and be deported/expelled. Finally, violent foreign demonstrators and rioters should be treated as Ex parte Quirin; non-uniformed enemy saboteurs.

This past week, New York and other US cities have come to resemble the lawless Tombstone on the eve of October 26, 1881. We are now effectively on the verge of civil war and the president should invoke the Insurrection Act of 1807 and the Alien and Sedition Acts. He should also strictly enforce the Smith Act in order to above all protect life and personal property.

The support of progressive politicians, governors, and mayors for the gangs of anarchists and rioters—who now, with complete impunity, attack the federal agents, police, and law-abiding citizens, tear down public monuments, and destroy private property—constitutes a dissolution of their social contract and their civil rights. Beyond the thin veneer of woke BLM activism, what we are really seeing here are foreign sponsored influence operations and paramilitary activities that are designed to topple the US government.

Over the past four years, we’ve heard a lot of talk about the need to do away with the second amendment and ‘modernize’ the constitution. On December 7, 1915, President Wilson in his third address to congress said:

“I am sorry to say that the gravest threats against our national peace and safety have been uttered within our own borders.

There are citizens of the United States, I blush to admit, born under other flags but welcomed under our generous naturalization laws to the full freedom and opportunity of America, who have poured the poison of disloyalty into the very arteries of our national life; who have sought to bring the authority and good name of our government into contempt, to destroy our industries wherever they thought it effective for their vindictive purposes to strike at them, and to debase our politics to the uses of foreign intrigue. Their number is not great as compared with the whole number of those sturdy hosts by which our nation has been enriched in recent generations out of virile foreign stocks; but it is great enough to have brought deep disgrace upon us and to have made it necessary that we should promptly make use of processes of law by which we may be purged of their corrupt distempers.

…Such creatures of passion, disloyalty, and anarchy must be crushed out. They are not many, but they are infinitely malignant, and the hand of our power should close over them at once. They have formed plots to destroy property, they have entered into conspiracies against the neutrality of the government, they have sought to pry into every confidential transaction of the government in order to serve interests alien to our own. It is possible to deal with these things very effectually. I need not suggest the terms in which they may be dealt with.”

What we urgently need now is for the DOJ/FBI to take a short break form their political activism and incessantly blaming imaginary “white supremacists” for the violence and stand up in ‘Gunfight at the O.K Corral’ style to the anarchist mob and Red-Green Alliance gangs. In the meantime, we should all put our trust in G-d and keep our powder dry.

*** Update 06/8/202-06/11/2020 ***

The Seattle Antifa and BLM leadership has captured a 6 block area which they call the “Capitol Hill Autonomous Zone”. The roads leading into this area are blocked with barricades and protected by AR-15 and AK-47 armed militia. The police has abandoned their precinct station located in this zone.

In true character, The New York Times (a member of group of US newspapers registered as Chinese agents, who were paid > $19 millions to publish CCP propaganda) leads the campaign promoting the riots in Seattle. In an article published on June 11, 2020  titled: “Free Food, Free Speech and Free of Police: Inside Seattle’s ‘Autonomous Zone’”, Mike Baker presents the violent anarchy as progressive street performance art:

“What has emerged is an experiment in life without the police—part street festival, part commune. Hundreds have gathered to hear speeches, poetry and music. On Tuesday night, dozens of people sat in the middle of an intersection to watch 13th, the Ava DuVernay film about the criminal justice system’s impact on African-Americans. On Wednesday, children made chalk drawings in the middle of the street.”

Antifa and BLM militias are engaging in countrywide attacks against private property and peaceful individuals. They are also utilizing combat techniques such as explosives devices, Molotov cocktails, and high powered green lasers against law enforcement. The following is a sampling linkages of BLM, local gangs, and the Red Green Alliance leadership behind several riots in St. Louis.

John Brennan’s Final Letter

Comrade John O. Brennan 

Perhaps I should not write all this in my situation, but I would ask for your pardon. I am seeking your understanding, since you know me better than others. I only lived to think, together with you, on how to improve our country, powerful and glorious, of course, within the limits of my abilities. For me to think otherwise is simply beyond comprehension. Of course, after what has happened, I should be called strongly to order, directed to my place, and dressed down so that I would remember it to the end of my life.

But dear comrades, you should understand that I am a faithful soldier of our Motherland, a loyal son of the party of Lenin and Stalin and your loyal friend and comrade. Send me wherever you wish, to any kind of work, [even] a most insignificant one. See me out, I will be able to work ten more years and I will work with all my soul and with complete energy. I am saying this from the bottom of my heart, it is not true that since I have held a big post I would not be able to perform in a small position.

This can be easily proven in any region or area, in a Soviet farm, in a collective farm, on a construction site of our glorious Motherland. And you will see that in 2 to 3 years I will improve my behavior strongly and will be still of some use to you. I am to my last breath faithful to our beloved party and our government.

John O. Brennan, former Director of the Central Intelligence Agency

Alright, I confess, I modified this letter slightly. It was actually written in 1953 by Lavrentiy Beria, the deposed head of the NKVD while he was awaiting trial. He was begging for forgiveness from the Central Committee of the Communist Party of the Soviet Politburo.

I just substituted Beria’s name with John Brennan’s and voilà! The context fits perfectly: the job title, the communist party stooge role, the failed coup, the crocodile tears about the failure of the rule of law, the phony-baloney patriotic justification for his dirty deeds, and his willingness to take a ‘lesser’ job with CNN selling treason and pimping the Russian collusion narrative.

Tavorish Brennan, Beria would have been proud of you. The only question that I have for you comrade is: when your final moment comes, will you follow in the footsteps of Lavrentiy Beria and Nikolai Yezhov? Will you fall to your knees begging and sobbing or will you take Brig. Gen. Anthony Tata’s advice and for once in your life do the honorable thing?

Beria Lavrentiy Stalin's Architect of Terror

The Predator (Sourced from Wikipedia)
At Beria’s trial in 1953, it became known that he had committed numerous rapes during the years he was the NKVD chief. Simon Sebag-Montefiore, a biographer of Stalin, concluded the information “reveals a sexual predator who used his power to indulge himself in obsessive depravity.”

According to official testimony, in Soviet archives, of Colonel Rafael Semyonovich Sarkisov and Colonel Sardion Nikolaevich Nadaraia–two of Beria’s bodyguards–on warm nights during war II Beria was often driven around Moscow in his limousine. He would point out young women to be taken to his mansion, where wine and a feast awaited them. After dining, Beria would take the women into his soundproofed office and rape them. Beria’s bodyguards reported that their duties included handing each victim a flower bouquet as she left the house. Accepting it implied that the sex had been consensual; refusal would mean arrest. Sarkisov reported that after one woman rejected Beria’s advances and ran out of his office, Sarkisov mistakenly handed her the flowers anyway. The enraged Beria declared, “Now it’s not a bouquet, it’s a wreath! May it rot on your grave!” The NKVD arrested the woman the next day.

Women also submitted to Beria’s sexual advances in exchange for the promise of freedom for imprisoned relatives. In one case, Beria picked up Tatiana Okunevskaya, a well-known Soviet actress, under the pretense of bringing her to perform for the Politburo. Instead he took her to his dacha, where he offered to free her father and grandmother from prison if she submitted. He then raped her, telling her: “Scream or not, it doesn’t matter.” In fact Beria knew that Okunevskaya’s relatives had been executed months earlier. Okunevskaya was arrested shortly afterwards and sentenced to solitary confinement in the Gulag, which she survived.

Beria’s sexually predatory nature was well known to the Politburo, and though Stalin took an indulgent viewpoint (considering Beria’s wartime importance), he expressed distrust of Beria. In one instance, when Stalin learned his daughter Svetlana was alone with Beria at his house, he telephoned her and told her to leave immediately. When Beria complimented Alexander Poskrebyshev‘s daughter on her beauty, Poskrebyshev quickly pulled her aside and instructed her, “Don’t ever accept a lift from Beria.”After taking an interest in Marshal of the Soviet Union Kliment Voroshilov‘s daughter-in-law during a party at their summer dacha, Beria shadowed their car closely all the way back to the Kremlin, terrifying Voroshilov’s wife.

Before and during the war, Beria directed Sarkisov to keep a list of the names and phone numbers of his sexual encounters. Eventually, he ordered Sarkisov to destroy the list as a security risk, but Sarkisov retained a secret copy. When Beria’s fall from power began, Sarkisov passed the list to Viktor Abakumov, the former wartime head of SMERSH and now chief of the MGB – the successor to the NKVD. Abakumov was already aggressively building a case against Beria. Stalin, who was also seeking to undermine Beria, was thrilled by the detailed records kept by Sarkisov, demanding: “Send me everything this asshole writes down!” Sarkisov reported that Beria had contracted syphilis during the war, for which he was secretly treated (a fact Beria later admitted during his interrogation).The Russian government acknowledged Sarkisov’s handwritten list of Beria’s victims in 2003; the victims’ names will be released in 2028.

Evidence suggests that Beria murdered some of these women. In the mid 1990s, the skeletal remains of several young women were discovered in the garden of his Moscow villa (now the Tunisian Embassy).According to Martin Sixsmith, in a BBC documentary, “Beria spent his nights having teenagers abducted from the streets and brought here for him to rape. Those who resisted were strangled and buried in his wife’s rose garden.”

The testimony of Sarkisov and Nadaraia has been partially corroborated by Edward Ellis Smith, an American who served in the U.S. embassy in Moscow after the war. According to historian Amy Knight, “Smith noted that Beria’s escapades were common knowledge among embassy personnel because his house was on the same street as a residence for Americans, and those who lived there saw girls brought to Beria’s house late at night in a limousine.”

“There are six things that the Lord hates, seven that are an abomination to him: haughty eyes, a lying tongue, and hands that shed innocent blood, a heart that devises wicked plans, feet that make haste to run to evil, a false witness who breathes out lies, and one who sows discord among brothers.”  Proverbs 6:16-19

To Andrew Cuomo J.D., Howard A. Zucker, M.D., J.D., and Sally Dreslin M.S, R.N.

I am at a loss to explain why neither one of you has been fired, resigned in disgrace, been arrested, or why you Mr. Cuomo haven’t been impeached yet. Somehow, all three of you have managed to maintain your poorly deserved prestige and professional licenses, and you continue to brightly shine in the daily MSM briefings. This defies all logic as any other public servant responsible for what you have done by now would have been labeled with the shameful stains of negligence, greed, and cowardice—but not you!

Despite your misconduct and total dereliction of duties, you still remain inexplicably unscathed. But what this wretched Covid-19 affair has cast on your reputation won’t wash away with spin, brevity, or jokes.

You recently issued another administrative directive, or, might I say, royal proclamation befitting a tyrannical monarch not accountable to anyone nor the law of the land. This order reversed your previous decree that all hospitals can transfer Covid-19 patients directly to nursing homes and care facilities. This is an affirmation of the criminal act which resulted in the deaths of over 6,000 (more likely double that figure) patients in the New York state and continues even now at the rate of 10-30 per day.

Zucker, the over-credentialed high priest of the medical intelligentsia and the New York Commissioner of Health, getting more useless degrees and telling the world how he eradicated the Zika and Ebola viruses. Zucker was the leading NYS medical authority to sign the nursing home death warrant directive 

History shall record that it was the following perverse order that led New York state to commit a heinous crime against the weakest and most vulnerable members of our society:

“No resident shall be denied re-admission or admission to the NH solely based on a confirmed or suspected diagnosis of COVID-19. NHs are prohibited from requiring a hospitalized resident who is determined medically stable to be tested for COVID-19 prior to admission or readmission.”

Even if your vile enablers at CNN and NYT suppress the truth for a while longer, you can be certain that what you have plotted in the dark will be revealed in the daylight, and what you have schemed in the inner rooms will be proclaimed from the rooftops. Since you have subverted all channels of justice, it should now be the duty of every resident in the state to speak out and not become an accomplice in this crime.

And it is to the three of you that I shall proclaim this with all the revulsion that a man can summon with the written word:

You were aware of the potential devastating consequences of your directive prior to your actions—but you issued the directive nevertheless. To whom if not to you, Governor Cuomo, the first magistrate of the state of New York, shall I reveal the treacherous nature of your band of Ivy league credentialed thugs?

Howard Zucker and Andrew Cuomu

At the root of it all are the three of you: Andrew M. Cuomo Governor, Howard A. Zucker,  Commissioner of Health, and Sally Dreslin, Executive Deputy Commissioner of Health. You, your media accomplices, and your healthcare industry ‘donors’ are the prime movers behind the death sentence that you pronounced on the thousands of high risk elderly New Yorkers. 

I realize that at the end of the day, Governor Cuomo, you are a just a manipulative, soulless political opportunist who believes that there are no limits to what you and your entourage can do and get away with. Nonetheless, you are still accountable to G-d—to whom you will ultimately have to answer. I have not despaired of the triumph of justice, in this case, I believe with the strongest conviction that truth is on the march and neither you nor your wicked lot can stop it. The positions are clear: on one side are your legions of darkness that will do all in their power to subvert the truth; on the other side is the army of light who will fight to expose it. 

With the truth in mind, I level these charges against you:

  1. I accuse you and your cohorts of being the diabolical masterminds of this death directive and of covering your dirty deeds by all manners of evil machinations.
  2. I accuse you of inflicting through your directives untold emotional pain, suffering, and psychological distress on thousands of family members and front line medical workers at nursing homes.
  3. I accuse you of one of the greatest instances of incompetence and medical malpractice in recorded history.
  4. I accuse you of professional negligence raising to the level of criminal negligence and manslaughter.
  5. I accuse you of surreptitiously passing immunity legislation to protect yourselves and your allies from prosecution and in so doing being guilty of conspiracy and crimes against humanity.
  6. I accuse you of complicity in a crime that was driven by financial, political, and professional greed.
  7. I accuse you of violating public trust by hiding, subverting, and suppressing evidence that show your culpability in these crimes.
  8. I accuse you of conducting a fraudulent inquiry by which I mean a biased root cause analysis of the nursing home deaths and then redirecting/misdirecting blame to the frontline medical staff, patient families, ‘CDC directives’, and G-d. 
  9. I accuse you of creating and referencing reports and medical data that were deceitful including deliberately exaggerating the need for 30,000 ventilators and claiming that NY hospitals could not handle Covid-19 patients.
  10. I accuse you of conspiring with media outlets like NYT and CNN to conduct political influence operations against the residents of New York state and a campaign to mislead the public and cover up your wrongdoings.
  11. I accuse the New York State justice system including judges and DAs and law enforcement in the local jurisdictions where these crimes took place of facilitating a judicial homicide by failing to stop these crimes and investigate and persecute the guilty parties.

As for the people I am accusing, I have never met them nor do I bear them any personal ill will. To me they are mere tools, corrupt grifters, purveyors of evil, instruments of greed, and agents of harm to our society. I am taking this measure to hasten their exposure in the hope that by doing so, tens of thousands of innocent crime victims and their families will find some solace and the justice they deserve.

In 1690, John Locke wrote:

“…where the body of the people, or any single man, is deprived of their right, or is under the exercise of a power without right, and have no appeal on earth, then they have a liberty to appeal to heaven…” 

Three hundred and thirty years later, this is the appeal to heaven from thousands of innocent victims.

The Hidden $$$ Trail Behind Cuomo’s Covid-19 Directives
In 2018, as Governor Andrew Cuomo faced a challenge to his reelection bid in the New York State Democratic primary, he got a last minute $1m cash infusion from the General New York Hospital Association (GNYHA)—a powerful NY healthcare industry group. On April 2, 2020, he repaid the favor when he quietly signed legislation shielding hospital and nursing home executives from any lawsuits stemming from the Covid-19 outbreak. The clauses, inserted into the annual budget bill, gave blanket immunity protections for healthcare industry executive and administrators, the same individuals and institutions that have made a fortune moving sick Covid-19 patients from the hospitals to nursing homes and long term care facilities.

What was the end result from the nursing homes front lines? Rampant and improperly rationed shortage of all PPE supplies, a blind eye turned to the possible presence of the virus by not testing patients and staff, requiring sick staff to return to work before 14 full days of quarantine—after as little as two days fever free, irresponsibly mixing the healthy with the sick, ZERO infectious disease control trainings for staff. And that’s just the short list.

Cuomo’s legal immunity legislation didn’t just happen in a vacuum. It turns out that GNYHA gave Cuomo’s New York State Democratic committee large donations which were deposited into his party’s housekeeping account and used to bankroll his re-election. The money among other things was used to buy TV ads to support his proposed budget, launch his progressive anti-gun crusade, and his 2018 campaign.

The 2018 GNYHA donation is an anomaly because it shows a massive (almost a four hundred percent increase) in donations from 2017. This move strongly suggest that the hospitals and nursing homes funding GNYHA were planning to cash in their donation through some favorable legislation or state action.

GNYHA Donations 2018
Chart 1: GNYHA historical New York state campaign donations

Tracing the donations shows that GNYHA affiliates gave over $900K directly to Cuomo’s campaign. In total, Cuomo and the NYS democratic party committee (which he controlled) received close to $2.3m from various hospitals and nursing home donors.

‘La Famiglia’, The Cuomo’s DeRosa Connection
According to the New York Public Committee on Public Ethics, GNYHA paid $60,000 to the MirRam Group in March-April 2020, according to the firm’s report. John Emrick, a lobbyist at the firm previously served as the chief of staff for the Independent Democratic Conference state senate caucus, lobbying the Senate majority leader’s office on “safe staffing” and “medical malpractice”.

Another GNYHA lobby firm, the Bolton-St Johns, gave Cuomo’s campaign $40,000 during his 2018 re-election. That firm employs Giorgio DeRosa, Joseph DeRosa, and Jessica Davos–the father, brother, and sister-law who is Cuomo’s current secretary and top aid, Melissa DeRosa.

The ‘La Famiglia’ and the DeRosa family Connection

Bolton’s website describes Giorgio DeRosa as a partner and the firm’s “chief Albany lobbyist.” According to New York state records, GNYHA pays the firm $24,167 a month to lobby on “Budget/Appropriations” work.

Following a typical plot line of The Sopranos, it is not surprising that the linkage analysis confirmed that Giorgio and Joseph DeRosa were listed as lobbyists in GNYHA state disclosure forms for years, including when Melissa DeRosa was serving as Cuomo’s chief of staff and after she was promoted to his top aid.

Yup, you read it correctly. Giorgio’s daughter Melissa was Cuomo’s gate keeper when GNYHA was throwing millions at Cuomo’s via the lobbying efforts of her father.

The sudden outset and rapid spread of the Covid-19 virus created an economic bubble for several healthcare industry verticals. medical equipment suppliers, hospitals, and nursing homes were able (with the full political backing of the state) to create artificial equipment shortages and inflate the prices for services by factors of 2x-6x.

US Free Speech, Meet Your Wealthy Chinese Fact Checker

Meet Your Chinese Censor

In the 1920s, Supreme Court Justice Louis Brandeis wrote several opinions upholding free speech claims. In one opinion he argued for broader protections for free speech:

“Those who won our independence … believed that freedom to think as you will and to speak as you think are means indispensable to the discovery and spread of political truth; that without free speech and assembly discussion would be futile; that with them, discussion affords ordinarily adequate protection against the dissemination of noxious doctrine; that the greatest menace to freedom is an inert people; that public discussion is a political duty; and that this should be a fundamental principle of the American government.”

Much ink has dried since this statement was written. These days, most on-line platforms the likes of Facebook and YouTube—as a matter of policy—mass block or just delete ‘disagreeable’ content and users. For example, if you say anything about the faulty Covid-19 predictive math models that disagree with WHO or CDC, you will almost certainly run into one of a dozen of fact checker thug death squads, a world-wide network of progressively funded censorship organizations who patrol the internet 24x7x365 using various AI tools to search and destroy counter-progressive narratives. 

On April 19th, YouTube CEO Susan Wojcicki openly stated that YouTube would remove any videos that provide “problematic” information related to Covid-19. Wojcicki defined problematic as:

…anything that would go against World Health Organization recommendations would be a violation of our policy.”

The other day, I was asked by a friend to check out the Facebook fact checker that blocked the now banned YouTube video of two US doctors discussing the faulty predictive models that are being used to justify strict Covid-19 quarantines. The video is completely innocuous, two medical professionals going over publically available stats and discussing the pros and cons of lock downs and aggressive social distancing.     

It turns out that the hitjob that led to blocking that video was done by Health Feedback, a unit within an organization called Science Feedback which itself is a Google/Facebook proxy established for the purpose of managing progressive medical related narratives. The following is the profile of one of one of these science censors who banned the video. 

Introducing Flora Teoh
Flora Teoh is a contributor to several ‘fact-checking’ organizations such as Maldita.es, International Fact-Checking Network (IFCN), and the International Data Verification Network, which aims to promote ‘good’ journalistic practices by fighting the dissemination of what they term “fake-news”. IFCN is an offshoot of the Poynter Institute for media studies that was created in 2015. Poynter gets the majority of its funding grants from entities such as: Google, the MacArthur Foundation, the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, and the Carnegie Foundation.

Teoh’s affiliated organizations are part of an international ‘progressive’ data verification network supported by the Open Society Foundations (George Soros) and the Omidyar Network (Pierre Omidyar). Omidyar is also funding Defeat Disinfo, an AI information warfare platform designed to fight president Trump’s Covid-19 messaging. Both Soros and Omidyar have sponsored The Intercept, a publication that released documents stolen by Snowden. In 2018, they also helped launch the Luminate platform that has since distributed over $314 million to finance progressive journalistic projects around the world. Health Feedback is one of these projects.

Bio wise, Teoh is a native Chinese speaker with professional and family ties in mainland China. She had a privileged upbringing in a wealthy family in Singapore. She is a globetrotter (often via first/business class and in luxury hotels). In 2016-2020, she visited and lived in Europe with the grand tour costing upwards of $100K. Beside the 5 star accommodations she also managed to live life to the fullest and attend gourmet cooking schools like the Le Cordon Bleu.

Teoh got her B.Sc, in 2012 and her Ph.D. in 2017 from Nanyang Technological University, Singapore. In October of 2017, she started her post-doc at the Singapore Agency for Science Technology and Research (A*STAR). Her area of specialty is candidiasis (Yeast infection). She was let go after ten months due to a ‘poor professional fit.’ In July of 2018, she joined the Asian Scientist Magazine as an intern but left after two months due to ‘performance-related’ issues.

Image 3: The never ending grand tour

Academically, she seems to be an under performer. Her grade history shows that she almost flunked a test (scored 60%) in “Monitoring of Clinical Trials by Industry Sponsors”, which ironically, is the basis of her proclaimed expertise for some of her critical fact checks.

In November of 2018, Teoh joined Science Feedback. Her main assignments for 2020 have been to:

  • Monitor and control political discourse related to science 
  • Gate keep and censor ‘conservative’ scientific content
  • Promote media that is aligned with ‘progressive’ thought

So it turns out that the arbitrator of truth that controls our free speech in the US is a Chinese woman from Singapore who is living a life of luxury in Europe, all expenses paid by her wealthy family back in Asia. No siree, Bob! You can’t make up this stuff even if you wanted to.

If you are still trying to figure out how to get around the social media ‘truth’ police, you may be interested to know that Flora Teoh is advertising her freelance writing services emphasizing her ability to “produce compelling narrative.“  Why not ping her and get her to review/write your next post?  If you’re lucky, you may be able to catch her between gourmet meals while advocating hermetic quarantine for the rest of us in the US. Her complete lack of expertise in your domain is not an issue, she is more than happy to write about “unfamiliar” topics. I also hear her rates are quite reasonable, last advertised she was only charging $30 per hour.

*** Update 05/24/2020 ***
Over the past two weeks there have been a number of publications that aggressively promote the medicine Remdesivir and attack the usefulness of Hydroxychloroquine for the treatment of Covid-19.  These publications have been now officially adapted by the social media censors as the new standard in suppressing any content that challenges their conclusions.

Yesterday, CNN spent 90 minutes and 54 seconds promoting a study that claimed that taking hydroxychloroquine while battling COVID-19 can be fatal. MSNBC dedicated 19 minutes and 19 seconds to the same claim. The source of the CNN and MSNBC claim is an article published in Lancet titled “Hydroxychloroquine or chloroquine with or without a macrolide for treatment of COVID-19: a multinational registry analysis”.

Evaluating the Lancet article, authors, and their network shows that the underlying data in it was forged and that the company Surgisphere and it’s CEO Sapan Desai—one of the authors of the paper—are knowingly perpetuating fraud on the scientific community and US regulatory bodies like the CDC who use this content for policy making decisions. It also seems that the Lancet editorial board was aware of the ‘unverified data’ in the paper but opted to publish it anyway.

Why Are the Chinese Made IR Thermometers So Cold?

Don't even bother drawing your Chinese made IR thermometer

A family member in the medical field recently voiced frustration about the low quality of some non-contact infrared thermometers they received. It seem that the entire batch yields consistently lower temperatures when compared to oral thermometers.

I thought that this was strange. Typically, instruments for medical use are certified for accuracy prior to shipment. Considering that these devices come with a certificate of calibration, I reasoned that they shouldn’t produce such discrepancies. Early detection of the onset of high fever is a key factor in Covid-19 patient care. The ability to accurately track body temperature is also critical in determining if a patient is contagious and would trigger decisions regarding treatment, quarantine, and use of PPE gear.

Just like in the case of a faulty car speedometer that displays lower speeds and results in speeding tickets, the usage of faulty thermometers that consistently show lower temperatures can have a detrimental effect on patients and medical staff. Considering that we are in the midst of a severe flu outbreak, I decided to take a closer look. IR thermometers are relatively simple devices that can be easily disassembled and tested, so, I spent a few hours this weekend in the lab digging into the Chinese IR thermometer mystery. 

Possible Reasons for Inaccurate IR Thermometer Readings
I do considerable amount of work in the the lab and have at times ran into equipment gremlins. In most cases, there is a simple non-mystical explanation for why test equipment fails. In the case of an IR thermometer this can include:

  1. The instrument is within the actual variance of its stated accuracy
  2. The instrument has faulty firmware, sensor, logic circuitry, or other board components
  3. The instrument is not being used correctly
  4. There are some unusual environmental conditions that effect the measurement (i.e. humidity)
  5. The instrument wasn’t calibrated prior to shipment
  6. The instruments detection range doesn’t cover the object temperate

Test Specimens
For the test samples I’ve selected the top of the line IR thermometers, all in the $60-$140 price range. There are many cheaper units on the market, but, I deliberately went with the higher-end devices because they claim to have been calibrated and certified, to be “Built for Accuracy”, and be “CE FCC RoHS FDA” approved.

Digital Infrared Thermometers
Image 1: The IR thermometers used in the evaluation

To keep the test conclusive, I avoided complex correlations of skin to core body temperate or evaluating the thermometer accuracy across a wide range of surfaces and temperate ranges. All of my testing was done in a controlled environment with respect to humidity and temperature and followed an identical sequence of repeatable steps.

IR Thermometer Test Setup
Image 2
: The test setup

The Testing Procedure

  1. The IR thermometer was kept at room temperature on the workbench where the test was conducted.
  2. Unit emissivity was set to the range of 0.95-0.97.
  3. The lens was cleaned before each measurement.
  4. Distance to Target ratio was kept constant and followed the manufacturer’s recommendation for each unit.
  5. The IR thermometer was held in a bracket and the lens was pointed at a 90° angle from the surface.
  6. Each IR thermometer executed 20 consecutive readings with 5 second lap between each reading.
  7. All measurements were taken at the same location about 1/2” off the inner canthus eye area.

IR Temperature Measurement Location

: Test measurement location and thermal distribution on the human face

Test Results
All of the Chinese made thermometers exhibited a wide range of results. They were inconsistent, fluctuating by as much as 5 degrees between consecutive measurements and frequently erred on the colder side. The Fluke 62 Max IR thermometer performed in a consistent predictable manner and passed the ‘Ice Water’ and ‘Infrared Comparator Cup’ tests within stated tolerances. All four Chinese made IR thermometers failed to pass both of these tests.

Of note is the high-low temperature variation pattern of the Chinese made thermometers. The test population indicates that all four devices were at times able to detect skin temperate of about 96F, but its unclear whey they didn’t do so in a consistent manner.

IR Thermometer Model vs. Skin Temperature Readings
Chart 1
: The results of 20 consecutive skin temperature readouts for the five IR thermometers. A normal range range for skin temperature is 33.5C-36.9C or 92.3F-98.4F

Running 100 consecutive tests on one of the Chines made thermometers (the QJ-CWQ20) shows a distinctive cyclic pattern resembling the output exhibited by some sort of a pseudorandom number generator logic. This could be some sort of a leveling function, but it could also be an attempt by the firmware writer to compensate for poor sensor performance or an evasion mechanism–The IR thermometer equivalent of VW’s dieselgate.

IR Thermometer 100 Consecutive Readings
Chart 2
: The results of 100 consecutive skin temperature readouts from the QJ-CWQ20 IR thermometer.

Testing the performance of the thermopile detector (the IR sensor) on all devices shows that they functioned properly and returned readings consistent with the Fluke 62 Max sensor.

Thermopile Detector
Image 4: Typical analog thermopile sensor used in the IR thermometers

Based on the consistent thermopile readouts on all devices and the occurrence of the temperature anomalies in only the Chinese thermometers, it’s unlikely that the cyclic pattern of low and high temperature readouts is attributable to individual components and/or circuit design issues.

The four thermometers are made by different vendors, each has different components and board layouts; suggesting that this is some sort of a shared problem. And, if this is the case, then the shared source must be faulty logic or firmware. Either way, this is a critical issue because it renders all of them are unreliable.

Poor Overall Quality and Hostile Intent 
Two additional data points that relate to the of faulty Chinese medical equipment theory are the large amount of ‘defective’ Covid-19 test kits and sub standard PPE gear sold in the west. In this context, we can also consider the possibility that these defective devices were shipped knowingly. This is suggested from one discussion on the Chinese DingTalk platform (an Alibaba company) where the topic of conversation was deliberately lowering the IR thermometer threshold for units sold in the US. In this 178 member group chat, Zhang Xuandong, the owner of Haofeng Electronic Technology Co—an IR thermometer producer in Dongguan, Guangdong Province in China—openly talked about waging war against the US. Zhang wrote:

” [Let’s] produce some faulty products and sell them to the US. They (the thermometers) should read 36.5 ºC when the actual temperature is 39 ºC. In this way, more and more American people will be infected. Let’s see if they still have people left to go to other countries to harm others!”

After one member responds with three laughing emojis, Zhang continues:

“Isn’t that a great idea? Without using one single soldier, we can make money, as well as make peace around the world.”

Another member then responds:

“No, we don’t want to make any money from the Americans. Let them help and rely on themselves.”

Let's lower the IR thermometer threshold for units sold in the US

Conclusion
Regardless of the root cause of the thermometer poor performance, the fact remains that all of the tested Chinese units were faulty. So, if you need to make critical decisions about patient care, go with a quality device like the Fluke 62 Max. With the Fluke, you will get US based support, a quality warranty, and piece of mind that your thermometer will work in a consistent and predictable manner. Regardless of make and model, unless you certify the gear independently, stay away from Chinese IR thermometers. The same advice also applies to other Chinese medical testing equipment.

A Note About Core Body vs. Surface Temperature
Anyone who has experimented with baking a thanksgiving turkey knows that a thermometer inserted into the center of a turkey will yield a different temperature than taking a surface measurement with an IR thermometer. Similarly, pointing an IR thermometer at human skin will not yield a reading of 98.6°F but rather something closer to 93°F or 96°F. This reading can depend on many factors such as skin reflectivity, moisture, hair, etc. (a reading of approximately 98.6°F is considered ‘core’ body temperature and must be measured in a body orifice.)

Temperature Baseline Verification Procedures
As part of benchmarking the IR thermometers, I’ve used the following two test procedures to establish the baseline for each device:

Ice Water Test
The purpose of this test is to determine if the IR thermometer can accurately read the water/ice temperature of approximately 32.0°F. To perform this test, I followed these steps:

  1. Filled a glass with crushed ice and added water to fill the gaps between the ice cubes.
  2. Allowed the ice/water to rest for 120 seconds.
  3. Stirred the mixture to get uniform distribution of water and ice.
  4. Attached the infrared thermometer to a holder located over the top of the ice/water at a distance of 3″ with the lens at a 90° angle and centered it over the ice/water.
  5. Took 10 consecutive readings at 10 second increments

Infrared Comparator Cup
The purpose of this test was to compare the accuracy of an infrared thermometer to a calibrated immersion type thermometer at a temperature other than that of ice/water. The reading of the IR thermometer should match that of the reference thermometer within the stated specifications. To perform this test, I followed these steps:

  1. Used a machined aluminum cup with a flat surface with a solid matte black coating. The cup walls shield the surface from air currents in the room and the mass of the base provided for temperature stability.
  2. Inserted the reference thermometer and allowed it to stabilize for five minutes.
  3. Pointed the IR thermometer at the target inside the cup using the same distance and geometry as with the Ice Water test.

Jim’ale The Jihadi Organ Grinder and his Little Tweeting Monkey

Ilhan Omar and the Jihadi Organ Grinder

On August 25, 2019, Ilhan Omar tweeted a cryptic post stating:

“Somali government and peacekeeping forces, need to protect @Hormuud and the Somali telecom industry as they make enormous contribution to the economy and provide vital services. During my visit to Somalia in 2011, I was surprised by the quick evolution of the technology in Somalia.”

What Ilhan Omar omitted in her tweet was the actual reasons why she promoted Hormuud, the identity of the people that facilitated her 2011 and subsequent trips to Somalia, and their agendas. Considering the fact that Omar (known back in Somalia as Elmi) has protected status and carries a non-expiring ‘Do not investigate me with extreme prejudice’ certificate, I decided to shed some light on the main subject of her tweet: the mysterious Somali Telecom Hormuud and its founder, Ahmed Nur Ali Jim’ale—a  cuddly, lovable man with a henna dyed beard and a ceaseless passion for violent jihad.

Who is Ahmed Nur Ali Jim’ale
Ahmed Nur Ali Jim’ale AKA ‘Jim’ale’ is one of the wealthiest Somali businessmen and is the founder of the Al Barakat group of companies. He is also the owner of Hormuud Telecom. Beside his business interests, Jim’ale also happens to be the leading financier of the al-Shabaab, a Somali Salafi jihadi terrorist organization which since 2006 has been responsible for dozens of car and suicide bombings, kidnappings, assassinations, and targeted killing of thousands of innocent Somalis.

In the mid-2000s, Jim’ale gained enough notoriety to get added to US and UN travel bans, assets freeze databases, and targeted arms embargo lists imposed by paragraphs 1, 3, and 7 of Resolution 1844.

Jim’ale is not some small-time Kalashnikov wielding terrorist. He is a well known and respected jihadi leader and in this capacity he served in several executive roles within the Somali Council of Islamic Courts, AKA the ‘Somali Islamic Courts Union’. This was the most radical Somali jihadi Islamist political element, the same one which eventually formed the military group known as al-Shabaab (The Youth). Al-Shabab’s ideology is based on hardcore Salafism and Wahhabism and aggressively promotes the concepts of takfir, the excommunication and killing of apostates or unbelievers. The groups political objective is to create an Islamic state in the Horn of Africa that would include not only Somalia but also Djibouti, Kenya, and Ethiopia.

In 2010, Al-Shabaab was targeted in sanctions by the United Nations Security Council Committee established pursuant to resolutions 751 (1992) and 1907 concerning Somalia and Eritrea (the “Somalia/Eritrea Sanctions Committee”). According to the July 18, 2011 report (S/2011/433 Item # 71), Jim’ale was identified as:

“…Al-Shabaab not only attracts their business by imposing lower rates of taxation in Kismaayo than at ports controlled by the Transitional Federal Government but also actively promotes large scale imports of sugar and exports of charcoal by offering preferential access and tax breaks to Al-Shabaab affiliated businesses. Two of the most prominent figures in the network are businessmen with historical linkages to militant Islamist groups in Somalia: Abukar Omar Adaani and Ahmed Nur Jim’aale.

Jim’ale was also marked as being related to the Somali warlord Mohamed Farrah Aidid, another Ilhan Omar idol, who triggered the Battle of Mogadishu:

“Mohamad Warsame is from the same sub-clan as General Mohamed Farrah Aidid, and was once known as being General Aidid’s representative in Bakaara market. Through his presence in Bakaara, he has developed a working relationship with Mr. Jim’ale.”

Jim’ale’s support for Somali Islamic fundamentalist terror goes far beyond a business venture; he is openly aligned with the al-Shabaab and other jihadi Salafi strategy and ideology. In the past, he provided major funding and political support for Hassan Dahir Aweys, who was listed by the Somalia/Eritrea Sanctions Committee. Former al-Shabaab Deputy Emir Muktar Robow also collaborated closely with Aweys and Jim’ale in consolidating their leadership role during the early 2010s in al-Shabaab’s political and ideological leadership struggle.

In 2007, Jim’ale established a front company in Djibouti for jihadi financing and logistics called the Investors Group (in 2012, it made it onto the UN terror watch list). One of the goals of the group was to destabilize Somaliland through the funding of extremist activities and weapons purchases (an objective which Ilhan Omar supports). The group provided the funding and logistics in smuggling small arms of Qatari and Turkish origin from Eritrea through Djibouti into the 5th region of Ethiopia, where the Salafi jihadi groups received the shipments.

In 2009, Jim’ale managed one of the largest Hawala funds in Somalia where he collected zakat (alms for the poor). The majority of the proceedings from this fund were routed to al-Shabaab. In the same year Jim’ale also worked with other like-minded individuals to undermine the Somali Transitional Federal Government (TFG) by not participating in Somali reconciliation efforts. 

The 2009 United Nations Security Council’s Report of the Secretary-General on the situation in Somalia identifies Jim’ale as one al-Shabaab’s chief financiers (pages 10-11). It also directly linked his company Hormuud to al-Shabaab.

In 2010, Jim’ale established several mobile-to-mobile money transfer businesses such as ZAAD and offered them to al-Shabaab to make international money transfers more difficult to trace by eliminating the need to show any form of identification at the point of transaction.

By 2011, Jim’ale was actively supporting al-Shabaab by offering them free cellphone communications, use of company vehicles, food, aid, and political advice. He also organized fundraisers for al-Shabaab through various Somali business groups. This fundraising activity included anonymous Turkish and Qatari donations to Jim’ale’s ‘charitable ventures’ which in turn used Djibouti based financial intermediaries to send that money to al-Shabaab.

Jim’ale is by no means a silent business partner in Hormuud Telecom, rather he is in full control of the company and its donations to al-Shabaab affiliates. These include large lump sum payments in the hundreds of thousands of dollars. In addition to the logistics support, Jim’ale through Hormuud has also provided al-Shabaab with privately paid foreign fighters from countries like Pakistan and Afghanistan. Spokespersons for moderate Somali groups have also warned the Somali people not to use Hormuud Telecom because Hormuud personnel listen-in on all conversations and share the intelligence with al-Shabaab.

In 2016, in part due to a large amount of progressive political lobbying and lubricating a lot of palms with tons of ‘grease’, President Obama’s state department and the US treasury removed Jim’ale from their registries and the Office of Foreign Assets Control (OFAC) list.

Harmuud, the Little Jihadi Shindig
The following short listing of Hormuud staff members who have transitioned from the corporate world to full-time employment in hands-on jihadist terrorism helps illustrate the tight coupling between Jim’ale, Hormuud Telecom, al-Shabaab, and several associated large scale terror attacks in Somalia:

  1. Khalif Warsame (Khalif Adale): head of NGO affairs of al-Shabaab, was a member of Hormuud telecom executive team. He is married to Nadifo Ali Jim’ale, the sister of the chairman of Hormuud Ahmed-nur Ali Jim’ale. Nadifo currently resides in the UAE.
  2. Dahir Ga’amey (Abdi Al Haq): chief judge of al-Shabaab, was a member of the executive team of Hormuud Telecom and Jim’ale’s Al Barakat group of companies.
  3. Hassan Muhidin Hassan (Bistolo weyneh): was manager of the Hormuud Telecom office in Villa Somalia. He took part in the al-Shabaab operation to assassinate former Somali prime minister by driving the hit team in his car.
  4. Abdiweli Ahmed Diriye: was a top Hormuud Telecom administrative official. He enabled the safe passage of an explosives loaded truck that killed over 500 people in Mogadishu on October 14, 2017.
  5. Mukhtar Haji Mohamud: was a senior representative of Taaj express; a company owned by Hormuud Telecom Albarakat group wired the money that was used to purchase the explosive truck. The money was wired to Italy to Sheikh Hassan, representative of Taaj Express. He is the person who bought the truck that was used during the October 14, 2017 massacre.
  6. Haji Qaaluu Abdi Ad Ali Jim’ale: an executive member of Hormuud Telecom, was the operational coordinator of the October 14, 2017 truck bomb. He is also the nephew of Ahmed-nur Ali Jim’ale and a card carrying member of the Amniyat branch of al-Shabaab.
  7. Basira Abdi (real name Maryan): the woman who carried out the suicide attack that killed Mogadishu mayor Abdurahman Yarisow, graduated from Al Nur school, the school is managed by Hormud Telecom and Al-Barakat group.
  8. Abdikarim Mohamed Kariye: the al-Shabaab head of finance, was the operations manager of Hormuud Telecom, Taaj Express, Alburuuj Construction, Salaam Somali Bank, and Beco Powering, all Hormuud group subsidiaries of the Al-Barakat Group.
  9. Abdihakim Hassan Idow (Hiirane): a former top official of Hormuud Telecom and Salaam Bank Africa–Djibouti, is the head of al-Shabaab logistics in the Horn of Africa.

So, there you have it. Ilhan Omar, a sitting Minnesota congresswoman, is openly promoting the interests of Hormuud, a known front and funding source of al-Shabaab, a jihadi terrorist organization with the blood of thousands of innocent Somalis on its hands. Considering just how outrageous all of this is, you’ve got to give Omar credit where credit is due: in one year, she managed to acquire the best political and media kevlar vest money can buy and is now dodging adultery, campaign finance, and FARA charges without even blinking.

So what do we learn from this third world tale of grift, corruption, and jihadi terror? Perhaps it is that in the post-modern world, we (and our federal three letter agencies) shouldn’t be judgmental about fluid and passé concepts like life, terrorism, treason, and murder. Considering this epiphany, it may not be a bad idea for US treasury and the constituents of Minnesota’s 5th congressional district to chip in and indeed help “protect” the Somali Hormuud Telecom. Because if they don’t, al-Shabaab may run into financial difficulties and have to cut back on their suicide car bomb program for 2020. And who wants that?

*** Update 08/16/2020
Another day another Al-Shabaab terror attack. Today, the Elite Hotel in Lido Beach in Mogadishu was targeted by a car bomb. After the initial blast, a group of gunmen opened fire at the wounded guests that were fleeing the explosion.
