The following stories are all ones that I wrote, submitted to Breitbart News and that were killed by editor-in-chief Alex Marlow. I’m publishing them in the hopes that some readers and fans of Breitbart News will be able to understand the frustration that I often had working there. I was not the only writer who had stories killed by Alex, who ruled the site in a standoffish and condescending way.
I’m posting these in the wake of the devastating Newsweek cover story where I’m quoted. As that article states:
Perhaps no man has a more complex relationship with Breitbart than Lee Stranahan, one of the most polarizing and unusual figures of the alt-right, which brims with unusual and polarizing figures. He has quit the site twice and been fired once, because of clashes with editors. But having been originally hired by Breitbart News founder Andrew Breitbart, Stranahan sees himself as a Breitbart purist, a “reader’s’ advocate” who will rescue the organization from its own trolliest impulses, returning it to its original mission, which was to…well, that’s actually not entirely clear.
I’ll help Newsweek out — the mission was to expose the institutional left and to take a “more voices, not less” approach to media. .
Here they are : three stories Alex Marlow didn’t want Breitbart readers to see. Just my opinion, but I don’t think Andrew would approve.
Southern Poverty Law Center Denialism on Frankfurt School
It’s an interesting question. Why is it that the left doesn’t want mainstream liberals to know the history of the left?
Even taking it a step further, why try to convince those liberals that conservative discussion of that history is a conspiracy theory?
For a decade, the Southern Poverty Law Center and others on the left have been trying to hide and distract from one of the main origins of both radical academia and media hostility towards capitalism: the ideology of cultural Marxism and Critical Theory that arose from the Frankfurt School.
The SPLC and others dismiss the facts about the German think-tank and its subsequent influence in America as a conspiracy theory. Understanding these attacks is an object lesson in how the left creates self-sustaining mythology by demonizing the people who dare expose their ideology while misdirecting their own followers as to the real story behind liberal ideas.
Organizations on the institutional left such as the Southern Poverty Law Center didn’t just appear out of nowhere or in an ideological vacuum. The SPLC in particular has a specific role of designating organizations as ‘hate groups’, often smearing mainstream conservatism by falsely tying it to tiny, violent and racist organizations.
The SLPC’s designation of what does and doesn’t constitute a hate group has clear foundations in the world of academic political correctness and censoring of speech it considers ‘racist, sexist and homophobic’; all terms that it defines in leftist terms and very selectively. For example, in the wake of last year’s shooting at the headquarters of the Family Research Council, the SLPC went out of their way to double down on it’s claim that the FRC is a ‘hate group.’
Even political correctness, however, didn’t just suddenly pop up out of thin air; it has its basis in a group of academic Marxist philosophers that came together in Germany between World War I and World War II called the Frankfurt School. Their cultural Marxist approach would go on to have a profound influence in the United States after many in the Frankfurt school fled Germany and came to America in the 1930s.
Due to the work of writers like the late Andrew Breitbart, many conservatives now have at least a passing familiarity with the Frankfurt School and their influence. Leftist groups like the Southern Poverty Law Center don’t want liberals to know this history, however, as evidenced by their disinformation campaign that pretends that conservatives who bring up the Frankfurt School are crazy racists who shouldn’t be taken seriously.
Typical of this ‘nothing to see here and you’re a nut-job for even looking’ tactic is a piece from Red Phoenix (described as ‘the newspaper of the American party of Labor’) which defines cultural Marxism as ‘a meaningless phrase used to signal that the writer or speaker has no idea what he or she is talking about’, and then says:
First, to understand cultural Marxism as a phrase is nearly impossible. The phrase itself is meaningless. Next time you find yourself in a discussion where your partner invokes cultural Marxism, ask them to define exactly what that means. Most people don’t even attempt to answer. Those that do give a definition that has nothing to do with Marxism. They may be totally convinced that cultural Marxism is destroying their society, to the point of obsession, yet they stammer and hesitate when asked for a coherent definition.
So, without stammer or hesitation: Cultural Marxism is a branch of Marxism advocated by the Frankfurt School of philosophers such as Erich Fromm, Max Horkheimer and Herbert Marcuse that focuses on cultural factors as agents for social change, as opposed to the traditional Marxist view that focused on economic factors.
That’s a short definition but one of the best summaries of the Frankfurt School and the impact it had on America is Andrew Breitbart’s highly lauded chapter entitled Breakthrough from his book Righteous Indignation. Although it may appear self-serving for this suggestion to come from a friend of Andrew Breitbart’s, nearly anyone who has read the chapter will tell you that Breitbart’s explanation of the Frankfurt School is scholarly, detailed and actually fun to read. Breitbart explains the history and significance of the Frankfurt School, cultural Marxism, critical theory and the impact on contemporary issues such as political correctness and multiculturalism. It’s a must-read for anyone interested in learning more about the influence of these ideas on our national politics.
In 2003, the Southern Poverty Law Center made a preemptive strike against anyone exposing the Frankfurt School in an essay by Bill Berkowitz entitled ‘Cultural Marxism’ Catching On. Although it was published a decade ago, the article has been referenced in many other pieces on the same subject; such is the power of the Southern Poverty Law Center brand on the left.
An in-depth dissection of the article is warranted, since the article is frequently cited by those on the left who are keen to sweep the facts about the Frankfurt School under the rug.
Take the following paragraph from the SPLC article that tosses buzzwords likes racist and extremist in with accusations that anyone looking into the Frankfurt school is anti-Semitic. Berkowitz writes:
Right-wing ideologues, racists and other extremists have jazzed up political correctness and repackaged it — in its most virulent form, as an anti-Semitic theory that identifies Jews in general and several Jewish intellectuals in particular as nefarious, communistic destroyers. These supposed originators of “cultural Marxism” are seen as conspiratorial plotters intent on making Americans feel guilty and thus subverting their Christian culture.
The charge that discussing the Frankfurt School is anti-Semitic gets raised a number of times by those like the Southern Poverty Law Center wishing the bury the truth, so let’s dispense with it as soon as possible. In short, the Jewish heritage of the Frankfurt school is irrelevant. It’s equally true that the major figures at the Frankfurt School were all Jewish and also that some of the major figures exposing the Frankfurt School such as Andrew Breitbart and David Horowitz are also Jewish. Anti-Semitism is a false, collectivist view that has no more place in any legitimate argument than any other form of actual racism trotted out by tribal mentalities. However, in exactly the same way that it would be invalid to criticize the ideas of the Frankfurt philosophers on the basis of them being Jewish, it’s equally invalid to exempt them from any criticism for that reason.
The SPLC throws in the charge of anti-Semitism in its attempt to hide the truth about the Frankfurt School for one reason; it’s exactly the kind of politically correct smear that is the modus operand of the SPLC throughout their work. It’s no small irony that it’s the exactly the technique made possible by the Frankfurt School ideology.
As the Southern Poverty Law Center article continues, they use a number of subtle (and not so subtle) linguistic tricks to create the utterly false notion that the Frankfurt School is some kind of boogeyman invented by conservatives. Take the next paragraph and note that they also continue to push the ‘anti-Semitic’ notion:
In a nutshell, the theory posits that a tiny group of Jewish philosophers who fled Germany in the 1930s and set up shop at Columbia University in New York City devised an unorthodox form of “Marxism” that took aim at American society’s culture, rather than its economic system.
The first alarm bell goes off over the use of the phrase ‘the theory posits’ in a sentence that goes on to factually describe the Frankfurt School philosophers. There’s not one thing in that sentence that is theoretical or in the least bit in factual dispute but describing it as a ‘theory’ gives the Southern Poverty Law Center audience the impression some of it could just be made up by wacked out right-wingers.
Next, note the use of scare quote around the word “Marxism”, which has the same goal of trying to give the reader the impression that maybe those crazy right-wingers are tossing the word Marxist around loosely, as some sort of insult rather than a 100% factual descriptor that’s beyond question.
Just as one example that the members of the Frankfurt school considered themselves Marxists, here’s a video interview with Herbert Marcuse explaining in his own words the group is firmly in the Marxist tradition despite their criticism of some aspect of Karl Marx’s original theories. Please note that the video link is presented here as a quick & easy way to confirm the Frankfurt School’s self-avowed Marxism, not to suggest the SPLC writer did or didn’t see it. The fact that the Frankfurt School is made of up self avowed Marxists is so clearly beyond any dispute that it’s easily confirmed by even the slightest amount of research.
As just one other example, here’s the Stanford Encyclopedia of Philosophy as it defines Critical Theory:
“Critical Theory” in the narrow sense designates several generations of German philosophers and social theorists in the Western European Marxist tradition known as the Frankfurt School.
However, like a wily attorney trying to plant reasonable doubt about the guilt of a confessed suspect, the SPLC wants their readers to believe that ‘Marxist’ is just a wild accusation. Note the repetition of ‘theory’, charges of anti-Semitism and scare quotes in the next paragraph of Southern Poverty Law Center article:
The theory holds that these self-interested Jews — the so-called “Frankfurt School” of philosophers — planned to try to convince mainstream Americans that white ethnic pride is bad, that sexual liberation is good, and that supposedly traditional American values — Christianity, “family values,” and so on — are reactionary and bigoted. With their core values thus subverted, the theory goes, Americans would be quick to sign on to the ideas of the far left.
Once again, the SLPC uses the word theory at the top of a paragraph that is describing undisputed facts.
Marcuse was the philosophical hero of the New Left in the 1960s; at marches in Paris, they carried banners that read “Marx, Mao and Marcuse.” As Andrew Breitbart described Herbert Marcuse in Righteous Indignation:
Marcuse’s mission was to dismantle American society by using diversity and “multiculturalism” as crowbars with which to pry the structure apart, piece by piece. He wanted to set blacks in opposition to whites, set all “victim groups” in opposition to the society at large. Marcuse’s theory of victim groups as the new proletariat, combined with Horkheimer’s critical theory, found an outlet in academia, where it became the basis for the post-structural movement–Gender Studies, LGBT/”Queer” Studies, African-American Studies, Chicano Studies, etc. All of these “Blank Studies” brazenly describe their mission as tearing down traditional Judeo-Christian values and the accepted traditions of Western culture, and placing in their stead a moral relativism that equates all cultures and all philosophies–except for Western civilization, culture, and philosophy, which are “exploitative” and “bad.”
Is there any doubt whatsoever that Americans influenced by Frankfort School ideas on American ‘racism’ and sexual liberation (Marcuse coined the phrase “Make Love, Not War”) quickly ‘signed up’ for the radical anti-war movement of the late 1960s? It’s equally obvious that the various cultural studies programs that sprouted in that era have thrived in academia in the past fifty years and that such programs have had a tremendous political influence, seen in contemporary news stories ranging from the Trayvon Martin shooting to immigration reform.
This is what the Southern Poverty Law Center calls ‘theory’; the very notion of pointing out the existence of political correctness and multiculturalism and pointing out the clear origins. The coup d’ grace is that SPLC actually uses political correctness in their attempt to claim that the Frankfurt School is a fever dream of conservatives; they argue anyone using the term ‘cultural Marxism’ to describe cultural Marxism is a racist lunatic to be dismissed. They write:
The very term, “cultural Marxism,” is clearly intended to conjure up xenophobic anxieties. But can a theory like this, built on the words of long-dead intellectuals who have little discernible relevance to normal Americans’ lives, really fly?
Conservatives know better. The average well-read conservative understands the Frankfurt School much better than the average well-read liberal. Such is the nature of the hermetically sealed media environment that mainstream leftists find themselves in due to groups like Southern Poverty Law Center, utilizing the ideas of the Frankfurt School.
Let the circle be unbroken.
Political Cronyism, Chobani Yogurt & Millions In Wasted Food
TWIN FALLS, IDAHO—The Michelle Obama-inspired changes to Federal School Lunch program in 2010 have caused a disaster for school districts across the country, as the do-gooder central panning scheme has caused food waste as the Obama administration tied federal funding to the requirement that kids be given food that they may not want to eat.
Part of that zeal to enforce “healthy foods” led to the Obama administration pushing for the inclusion of Greek-style yogurt in school lunches. A detailed look at how Chobani Yogurt become part of the Federal School Lunch program demonstrates what seems to have become “business as usual” today, as political connections between Chobani owner Hamdi Ulukaya factored into the deal every step of the way.
Chobani’s Crony Capitalism
Chobani began lobbying efforts in 2012. As we reported in out profile of Hamdi Ulukaya’s political connections to the Clintons and their allies, New York Senator Chuck Schumer had suggested that Chobani, which has large factory in New York, get involved with the Federal School lunch program. As reported bythe Albany Times Union:
With encouragement from (New York Senators) Schumer and Gellibrand, Ulukaya and other New York Greek yogurt players entered the Washington fray in 2012. They wanted to get into the USDA‘s $15 billion school lunch, breakfast and summer food programs.
Another of Sen. Schumer’s other projects at the time was promoting the globalist open border immigration agenda. Schemer was part of the Gang of Eight, working with other Senator like John McCain and Marco Rubio as well as the Obama White House to promote their idea of comprehensive immigration reform.
In pushing for immigration reform—a concept with a lot of public resistance— the administration needed to roll out a variety of surrogates to create the appearance of a groundswell of support for the comprehensive immigration reform agenda.
On June 24, 2013 Chobani founder Hamdi Ulukaya got a rare honor and was called to the White House to meeting with President Obama to help promote the Senate’s bipartisan establishment full court press for amnesty via the Gang of Eight comprehensive immigration reform bill.
C-SPAN covered the press conference held after the dog-and-pony show, describing it as:
Business Leaders on the Senate Immigration Bill Business leaders spoke to reporters after a meeting with President Obama at the White House to discuss the current immigration policy bill being debated in the Senate. They were mainly immigrants, or the children of immigrants, and entrepreneurs.
What C-SPAN failed to report, however, was that Hamdi Ulukaya is not a U.S. citizen, but a Turkish citizen. In other words, a foreign national was used a prop to impact United States immigration policy.
Ulukaya’s performance paid off. Just 15 days after Ulukaya visited the White House to promote immigration reform, The Hill reported:
The Obama administration wants to add Greek yogurt to school lunch menus.
On Monday, the Department of Agriculture announced it was looking to buy the yogurt for schools participating in a federally assisted program that subsidizes school lunches.
A department official said in a statement that the introduction of Greek yogurt, which is high in protein, was aimed at helping schools offer a variety of healthy foods to kids
This promoted Michelle Obama’s pet project, the “Healthy, Hunger-Free Kids Act of 2010” that passed Congress with bipartisan support and was signed by President Obama. Luckily for Chobani, the proposal was very specific: it didn’t want to add just any yogurt to school lunches but Greek-style yogurt…and the market leader there was Chobani. As Reason reported:
Greek-style yogurt is more expensive than other comparably nutritious yogurts. The USDA has to pilot this program in only four states—New York, Arizona, Idaho, and Tennessee—because the bureaucrats don’t know if they can get such a highly perishable item to schools that are situated further from the yogurt distribution centers. And most important, there is one particular state and one particular business that stand to benefit from a big increase in Greek yogurt sales.
Meanwhile, Sen. Schumer continues to be a Chobani-booster. When Russian authorities blocked a shipment of Chobani to the 2014 Winter Olympics, Chuck Schumer put in a good word for Hamdi Ulukaya’s company, saying in an official statement that reads like a company press release, ““The Russian Authorities should get past ‘nyet,’ and let this prime sponsor of the U.S. Olympic Team deliver their protein-packed food to our athletes.”
In turn, Chobani and Ulukaya helped to attack Russia on another issue that was key to the Democrat agenda: LGBT rights. As the Huffington Post reported:
On Friday evening, Greek-yogurt maker Chobani released on Twitter an image of stacked yogurt cups representing the colors of the rainbow with the tagline “Naturally Powering Everyone.” The post comes just after Chobani, a sponsor of the United States Olympic Committee and Team USA, publicly denounced Russia’s anti-gay laws.
“It’s disappointing that in 2014 this is still an issue,” Chobani’s CEO, Hamdi Ulukaya, told the Associated Press on Feb. 5. “We are against all laws and practices that discriminate in any way, whether it be where you come from or who you love — for that reason, we oppose Russia’s anti-LGBT law.”
It’s worth noting that Ulukaya doesn’t seem to have made any statements about LGBT issues in Turkey, where he is a still a citizen. However, Chobani showed it’s commitment to LBGT issues in 2015 with a provocative commercial that features their Simply 100 product, naked lesbians and a large amount of spoon licking.
Chobani continued to spend money on lobbying and Hamdi Ulukaya continued as an outspoken public advocate for expanded immigration and refugee resettlement. With the pilot program for Federal School Lunches underway, in April 2014, New York Timesreported:
Chobani, a fast-growing company in upstate New York, said on Wednesday that it had secured a $750 million loan from TPG Capital, a big private equity firm. The fresh capital, coming after a competitive process in recent weeks, is intended to help Chobani add new products and expand overseas.
Chobani, which is based in New Berlin, N.Y., and has a manufacturing plant in Twin Falls, Idaho, has gained political allies in New York, who have embraced yogurt production as a booming business.
However the company also hit some snags in their booming business when they were forced to recall some of their live-culture (i.e. mold) enhanced yogurt product. As NBC News reported in a September, 2013 article titled Chobani yogurt on school lunch menus, weeks after mold forces recall:
School lunch programs in four states will be dishing up Chobani Greek yogurt to kids, weeks after problems with mold and complaints of illness forced the firm to launch a nationwide recall.
Some 230 New York school districts have ordered more than 3,300 cases of Chobani products, while Idaho schools have requested more than 3,400 cases, school officials said.
In 2014,NBC News reportedthat some scientists were saying Chobani’s claims about the risk posed by the mold weren’t entirely accurate.
Ten months after a nationwide recall of Chobani Greek yogurt linked to reports of more than 400 illnesses, microbiologists say the fungus responsible for the outbreak isn’t as harmless as company officials indicated.
“The potential risk would be higher than we might have thought,” said Soo Chan Lee, a senior research associate with the Duke Department of Molecular Genetics and Microbiology. The study is published in the journal mBio.
That contradicts the position of experts cited by Chobani who said the mold is “not considered a disease-causing microorganism,” and might pose risk only to people with compromised immune systems.
The school lunch pilot program promoted by Senator Schumer and the White House was going full speed ahead, however, and would lead to a big contract. In June 2015, Syracuse News reported:
The U.S. Department of Agriculture has selected Upstate New York-based Chobani Greek Yogurt to serve as the main supplier nationwide for its school lunch program beginning this fall.
Like most central planning, Michelle Obama’s meddling in school lunches had unintended consequences. The federally assisted program had one big flaw: kids weren’t eating the Obama-lunches. The issue of food waste was getting press, even before Chobani was made part of the Federal School Lunch program.
There were financial costs and other side effects because any parent knows hungry kids are cranky kids. In 2013, the New York Daily News reported that:
…students who began avoiding the lunch line and bringing food from home or, in some cases, going hungry.
“Some of the stuff we had to offer, they wouldn’t eat,” said Catlin, Ill., Superintendent Gary Lewis, whose district saw a 10 to 12 percent drop in lunch sales, translating to $30,000 lost under the program last year.
“So you sit there and watch the kids, and you know they’re hungry at the end of the day, and that led to some behavior and some lack of attentiveness.”
Bigger school districts yielded much bigger problems. The Los Angeles Times reported in 2014 on the food the feds are virtually forcing Los Angeles students to toss in the garbage every day. The Obama administration’s policy is sending a staggering $18,000,000 worth of food into the trash per year in Los Angeles alone:
And so it goes on hundreds of campuses in Los Angeles Unified, the nation’s second-largest school system, which serves 650,000 meals a day. Students throw out at least $100,000 worth of food a day — and probably far more, according to estimates by David Binkle, the district’s food services director. That amounts to $18 million a year — based on a conservative estimate of 10% food waste — which Binkle says would be far better spent on higher-quality items, such as strawberries or watermelon.
But under federal school meal rules finalized in 2012, Parrish and other students must take at least three items — including one fruit or vegetable — even if they don’t want them. Otherwise, the federal government won’t reimburse school districts for the meals.
Back in Twin Falls, food waste in the public schools is still a problem, a source who wishes to remains anonymous inside the school system tells me. One of the foods the source says they’ve often seen thrown in the garbage is Chobani yogurt.
The Consequences of Globalism
Of course, all this wasted food may be repugnant morally and a gigantic waste of taxpayer dollars but it doesn’t impact the bottom line of the companies selling food to the feds. The big contracts given to companies like Chobani and other vendors pay them whether their food is enjoyed by kids or chucked in the trash can.
The entire Twin Falls story is an object lesson in the unintended consequences of globalism. Most people first heard of the refugee situation in Twin Falls when it was reported a five-year-old girl was raped by refugee boys back in June. That story was disparaged by national media such as the Washington Post and covered up and lied about by local politicians.
Publicly, corporate executives and politicians mouth platitudes and flaunt their good intentions, but the reality is open corruption as large multinational businesses and big government politicians work hand in hand to advance an open borders agenda that favors “immigrants” over U.S. citizens.
The result is a series of disasters that the establishment media does not cover in-depth, nor does it connect the dots to inform the public about mind-boggling waste, blatant cronyism, or the human costs of oligarchy.
An Exclusive from Michele Bachmann
This will really only shock you if you’re a regular reader and fan of Breitbart. In October 2016 I was able to get an exclusive statement from Michele Bachmann, a friend of Andrew Breitbart’s and former Congresswoman. Editors Marlow and Boyle refused to publish it, saying that Bachmann had gone too far. If you’re a Breitbart reader, you’re likely to be as dumbfounded about this claim by the editors as I was. The article never ran.
In 2012 then-Congresswoman Michele Bachmann had the guts to take on vindictive Hillary Clinton’s powerful right-hand woman Huma Abedin in the media. Now as Huma is possibly poised to waltz into the White House at Clinton’s side, Bachmann is rock solid on her belief that Huma’s immediate rise to power twenty years ago has “all the hallmarks of a classic influence operation of a foreign government on our White House.”
Abedin’s influence on Clinton is beyond question. As this reporter revealed in a detailed history of Hume Abedin, Hillary Clinton has acknowledged the impact of Huma for years, and said so publicly at one of the first Ramadan Eid dinners held at the White House in 1999.
I must say that I have seen very personally the impact of Ramadan because of having Huma on my staff, and have had many occasions to talk with her about the particular meaning of Ramadan.
Huma’s influence is clear but the questions remains—how did Huma attain that status so quickly and who helped her achieve it?
In 2012, when Bachmann led a group of politicians in laying out facts about Huma, Michele Bachmann became the target of vicious smears, including from attacks from key establishment Republican figures like John McCain and John Boehner. The media piled on too, including CNN and the Washington Post, who said this about the Congresswoman:
To conspiracy theorists like Rep. Michele Bachmann (R-Minn.), the Obama administration’s approach to the Arab world is the product not of considered diplomacy but of wicked “influence operations…”
Ms. Bachmann’s accusations are in the squalid tradition of McCarthyism and other shameful chapters of our history in which politicians have slandered their rivals as un-American, allied with enemy forces or guilty by association with shadowy forces.
But Michele Bachmann held her ground and with time, has been proven correct for taking her brave stand. Bit by bit, the underlying facts, and claims that Michele Bachman made have been admitted by Hillary Clinton’s spokespeople and the mainstream press.
For example, even this month’s long puff piece in Vouge admits the underlying facts the right-leaning news media have reported for years:
Her parents, Syed Zainul Abedin, born in India, and Saleha Mahmood Abedin, born in Pakistan, were academics. When Abedin was two, they moved from Kalamazoo, Michigan, where she’d been born, to Jeddah, Saudi Arabia, to teach. (Her father also started a notable nonprofit, the Institute of Muslim Minority Affairs.) At British international schools, she grew up surrounded by other multinational students.
While the Vouge piece doesn’t even bother to ask the obvious questions—such as how Huma’s academic parents could afford pay for “British international schools”—that one short paragraph lays out what the Washington Post attack editorial in 2012 refused to address: the Institute of Muslim Minority Affairs and its journal that were created and sponsored by the Muslim World League—the Saudi Arabian charity formed in 1962 to spread radical Wahhabism throughout the world.
Michele Bachmann, now a foreign policy advisor for Donald Trump, gave the following statement exclusively to Lee Stranahan:
Hillary Clinton has a highly unusual relationship with Huma Abedin.
The two are so close, Hillary felt free to send classified emails to Abedin on an unsecured email server. By Abedin’s own emails, we know she instructed other staff that sensitive documents were left in a vehicle and needed to be disposed of. It appears Abedin took cues from her reckless boss and likewise mishandled classified information.
Huma Abedin grew up in Saudi Arabia, where her parent’s business was publishing a magazine that pushed for the establishment of Islamic shariah law in non Islamic countries. That made sense because Abedin’s parents were also senior members of an organization whose stated purpose is to advance the rule of Islamic shariah law everywhere.
Huma and her siblings were listed as assistant editors on the masthead of the Islamic propaganda magazine and she was a member of the magazine’s editorial board simultaneously as she worked for First Lady and later US Senator, Hillary Clinton.
The funder for the Saudi based Abedin family magazine (now based in London) was Abdullah Omar Naseef, a terror funder of Osama bin Ladin.
Abedin has not disavowed Islamic shariah law, nor has she disavowed the purpose of her parent’s work—the establishment of Islamic shariah law as the dominant authority in America, supplanting the US constitution.
The American people need to know what Hillary’s views are about advancing Islamic law in the US. She needs to explain why as Secretary of State she backed UN Resolution 1618, supported by 57 Islamic countries which they viewed as criminalizing blasphemy of Islam?
US federal law denies potential federal employees a security clearance if they have family connections such as Abedin’s. The public must be told what level of national security secrets Hillary shared with Abedin and what level of security clearances Abedin holds, if any. No evidence has been given that Hillary Clinton issued a waiver in order for Abedin to pass a security clearance check.
She must answer how Abedin—a college student who grew up in Saudi Arabia at the she began working for Hillary Clinton—was able to get a security clearance.
Fact patterns like Huma Abedin’s bear all the hallmarks of a classic influence operation of a foreign government on our White House. Knowing the Saudi’s have reportedly given 100’s of millions of dollars to the Clinton Foundation and knowing the Abedin family business is to advance Islamic shariah law in the US and across the globe, Hillary Clinton needs to hold a press conference and answer legitimate questions regarding the influence of the Saudi government and Islamic law on her decision making.
