Dagny" First Date With Daddy! Has Sweden Come To Its Senses and Can We? Hillarious Apparently Placed Personal Convenience Over Protecting State Secrets.

We just returned from Orlando where we went for a grandma and grandpa event at Blake and Dagny's school.  Later that evening Dagny and her daddy had a dinner date at the school.

Now for a little humor about aging:
Has Sweden come to its senses? (See 1 and 1a  below.)

Will and can we after Obama? (See 1b below.)

Will American voters elect a woman whose personal convenience apparently trumped the protection of state secrets and used her position for personal gain?

She claims the e mails were not marker. If that is so then she also is too dumb to be president. (See 2 and 2a below.)

1)After this shocking attack, Sweden announces new DRASTIC measures against refugees

After generously welcoming migrants…er, refugees…er, stealth terrorists into towns and cities, European countries are now considering drastic measures to cope and reverse the tide. Sweden has been one of the top destinations for asylum-seekers in the last year, taking in one of the highest amounts of refugees per capita in the European Union.
Of course that has come with a very high price. As we’ve reported here, Sweden is now the rape capital of the West. last week a police patrol of 10 officers was forced to flee a refugee center in Sweden after being surrounded by a mob of violent migrants. Law enforcement officials had arrived to relocate a 10-year-old boy after reports of his repeated rape at the facility.
And on Monday, a 15-year-old refugee was arrested on suspicion of murdering 22-year-old Alexandra Mezher at a youth refugee center in Molndal, near Gothenburg.  Mezher’s college thesis was titled ‘The Road to Non-Criminal – A Lifestyle Change’. She believed creating a trustful relationship with people was key for a social worker.   The center where she worked housed 10 youths aged between 14 and 17.
Now Sweden’s interior minister announced the country will be taking drastic new measures to reverse the tide, including mass deportations.
Fox News reportsUp to 80,000 refugees who arrived in Sweden last year will be expelled from the country over the next few years, the country’s interior minister said Thursday.
Anders Ygeman told newspaper Dagens Industri that since about 45 percent of asylum applications are currently rejected, the country must get ready to send back tens of thousands of the 163,000 who sought shelter in Sweden in 2015.
“I think that it could be about 60,000 people, but it could also be up to 80,000,” Ygeman was quoted as saying.                                                                                     Meanwhile, neighboring Denmark voted in favor of seizing the assets of asylum seekers to help pay for their stay while their claims are processed.                                                 Valuables worth more than 10,000 kroner ($1,500) will be seized by police as migrants enter the country to help cover their housing and food costs.                                             It is part of a package of immigration reforms designed to make Denmark less appealing for asylum-seekers.
It’s difficult to watch the nightmare unfolding in Europe and not think two things: 1. We told you so. And 2. How the heck are we going to stop the same thing happening here?
November can’t come soon enough.

1a)Following PMW presentation,
Swedish MP questions Swedish aid to the PA,
Swedish Foreign Minister to answer questions
 in Parliament about Palestinian incitement
Swedish MP Mikael Oscarsson:
"We must check where the funding 
that we send to the PA is going.
We cannot support incitement to terror.
We will call Foreign Minister Wallström to the plenum
and force her to answer to the evidence of [Palestinian] incitement
that we just saw" 
[The Jerusalem Post, Jan. 22, 2016]

 "The [Swedish] government has decided
to double its aid to Palestine
after the recognition [as a state],
but we cannot just continue to give money
without taking this hate propaganda into account"
[Världen Idag (Swedish daily),Jan. 20, 2016]

Itamar Marcus and Nan Jacques Zilberdik

Following Palestinian Media Watch director Itamar Marcus' presentation of PMW findings on Palestinian Authority and Fatah hate incitement and terror promotion to opposition MPs, Swedish MP Mikael Oscarsson (Christian Democrats) called to reconsider Sweden's aid to the PA:
"The [Swedish] government has decided to double its aid to Palestine after the recognition [as a state], but we cannot just continue to give money without taking this hate propaganda into account."
[Världen Idag (Swedish daily),Jan. 20, 2016]
MP Oscarsson had invited Itamar Marcus to Swedish Parliament to inform Swedish MPs about the content of Palestinian messaging and its impact on terror and peace. MP Oscarsson suggested that because of Sweden's role as a major donor to the PA, it is also Sweden's obligation to question PA policies and conduct in light of PMW's "important information":
"The purpose of the meeting [with PMW's Itamar Marcus] was for the MPs to receive important information. Sweden is a large contributor to Palestine and therefore we must also present counterclaims [to the PA]."
[Dagen (Swedish daily), Jan. 22, 2016]
In light of PMW findings that demonstrate the clear impediments to peace posed by the PA, MP Oscarsson stated that the opposition intends to force Foreign Minister Wallström to answer questions about Palestinian incitement:
"We must check where the funding that we send to the PA is going. We cannot support incitement to terror. We will call Foreign Minister Wallström to the plenum and force her to answer to the evidence of [Palestinian] incitement that we just saw." 
[The Jerusalem Post, Jan. 22, 2016]
MP Oscarsson repeated PMW director Marcus' assessment that the Palestinian leadership sees Swedish Foreign Minister Wallström's recent remarks calling for an investigation of Israel's "extrajudicial killings of Palestinians" as Swedish support for continued Palestinian violence against Israelis, disguised as self-defense:
"Now the [Palestinian] acts of violence have intensified and [they] also use [Swedish Foreign Minister] Wallström's statements as a kind of support. It is very important that the [Swedish] government breaks with this image and shows that it is possible to consider this kind of information (i.e., the findings by Palestinian Media Watch), which is not an expression of opinion but only translation from the official Palestinian [TV] programs."
[Världen Idag, Jan. 20, 2016]
The following is an interview with Itamar Marcus and MP Mikael Oscarsson in the Swedish daily Världen Idag:
Headline: "Break with hatred and incitement against Israel"
By Eva Janzon
"'Instead of criticizing Israel for how to deal with the recent stabbing spree, Sweden should pay attention to the constant encouragement of terror from the Palestinian side,' says Itamar Marcus of Palestinian Media Watch, which examines the Palestinian Authority through its media and school books.

It is [Swedish] Foreign Minister Margot Wallström (S) who has made Itamar Marcus travel from Israel to Stockholm at short notice to meet with politicians and appear before churches and the Zionist Federation.

He and other Israelis see with indignation that [Swedish Foreign Minister] Margot Wallström called for an examination of whether extrajudicial killings has been used by Israel during the last few months of many acts of violence and knife attacks against Israelis.

'It does not really matter if she did not intend supporting those [Palestinians] who carry out these attacks, but what matters is how the Palestinians perceive what she said,' says Itamar Marcus.

'And they understand that her statement fits in with what is already being said by the PA top, namely that the world is ready to accept this kind of violence.'

Itamar Marcus has brought a long series of examples of statements on official PA television, which in different ways glorify and motivate the attacks of the recent months.
In particular, he highlights a statement dated Oct. 17, 2015 on the Palestinian Authority's official television channel by Jibril Rajoub, president of both the Palestinian Football Federation and the Olympic Committee, as well as Deputy Party Secretary of Fatah, which controls the West Bank.

Jibril Rajoub 'congratulates' those who have carried out knife attacks against Israelis, praising them as Martyrs, 'assets to the entire Palestinian people,' and even provides an explanation for the attacks:

'The international community does not agree to a bus exploding in Tel Aviv. But the international community does not ask for what happens to a settler or soldier in the occupied territories [who is there] at the wrong time and in the wrong place. No one asks about him! Therefore, we want to fight in such a way that the world and the international community will remain by our side.' [PA TV Oct. 17, 2015]

'It is quite unbelievable that no politicians have distanced themselves from Jibril Rajoub after this. He should be banned from Europe, as a sign of opposition to all the incitement to violence that constantly is coming from Palestinian sources,' says Itamar Marcus.
'But I am always told the same thing when I speak with parliamentarians from the European Parliament or from different countries in Europe: "It is horrible with this hate propaganda and incitement, but we have no choice but to cooperate with and support the Palestinian Authority so that it does not collapse."'

Itamar Marcus points out that many of the attacks against Israelis have been committed by teenagers, and sees a clear link to the enemy image of Israel and the Jews which for a long time has been allowed to spread through Palestinian children's television.

'The conclusion we must draw from recent months, when so many Palestinian teenagers have committed murder or attempted to commit murder, that [donor] money should not go to media that teach children to say that Jews are pigs and that Israel should be destroyed,' he says.

'And those who should deal with this is Europe, precisely because the Palestinian Authority needs Europe.'

Itamar Marcus was invited to [Swedish] Parliament by MP Mikael Oscarsson (KD). He has repeatedly urged the government to condition aid from Sweden to Palestine, in order to fight off the statements, including on TV, inciting to violence and hatred against Jews and Israel.

'The [Swedish] government has decided to double its aid to Palestine after the recognition [of Palestine as a state], but I think we cannot just continue to give money without taking this hate propaganda into account, he [MP Oscarsson] says to the Världen Idag.

'Now the acts of violence have intensified and [they] also use Wallström's statements as a kind of support. So it is very important that the [Swedish] government breaks with this image and shows that it is possible to consider this kind of information (i.e., the findings by Palestinian Media Watch), which is not an expression of opinion but only translation from the official Palestinian [TV] programs. If you look at Northern Ireland, it was only when they dealt with the hate propaganda in the textbooks that a real change towards peace took place.'"

1b) All of a sudden!
by Larry Tabone:

"Has everyone lost their ability to see what is happening in the USA? Think America! Before Obama, there was virtually no visible presence of Islam in America. 

All of a sudden, Islam is taught in schools.

All of a sudden, we allow prayer rugs and Islamic prayer in schools and businesses. 

All of a sudden, we are inundated with law suits by Muslims who are offended by America. ( they are IN America) 

All of a sudden, we must allow burkas to be worn even though you have no idea who is covered up under them. 

All of a sudden, Muslim training compounds are popping up throughout the USA. 

All of a sudden, Muslims are suing employers for being expected to do their jobs. 
All of a sudden, our troops are withdrawn from the middle east.

All of a sudden, there is no money for American poor, disabled veterans, jobless Americans, hungry Americans, or displaced Americans, but there is endless money for Obama's refugee programs. 

All of a sudden, Obama fills the Federal Government with Muslims in key positions.

All of a sudden, there is an ammunition shortage in the USA. 

All of a sudden, Americans are threatened by the Federal government for complaining about Muslims or profiling Muslims. 



Why Hillary Clinton's legal woes are grave or even fatal: A tale of two smoking guns

The federal criminal investigation of former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s failure to secure state secrets was ratcheted up earlier this week, and at the same time, the existence of a parallel criminal investigation of another aspect of her behavior was made known. This is the second publicly revealed expansion of the FBI’s investigations in two months.

I have argued for two months that Clinton’s legal woes are either grave or worse than grave. That argument has been based on the hard, now public evidence of her failure to safeguard national security secrets and the known manner in which the Department of Justice addresses these failures.

The failure to safeguard state secrets is an area of the law in which the federal government has been aggressive to the point of being merciless. State secrets are the product of members of the intelligence community's risking their lives to obtain information.

Before she was entrusted with any state secrets -- indeed, on her first full day as secretary of state -- Clinton received instruction from FBI agents on how to safeguard them; and she signed an oath swearing to comply with the laws commanding the safekeeping of these secrets. She was warned that the failure to safeguard secrets -- known as espionage -- would most likely result in aggressive prosecution.

In the cases of others, those threats have been carried out. The Obama Department of Justice prosecuted a young sailor for espionage for sending a selfie to his girlfriend, because in the background of the photo was a view of a sonar screen on a submarine. It prosecuted a heroic Marine for espionage for warning his superiors of the presence of an Al Qaeda operative in police garb inside an American encampment in Afghanistan, because he used a Gmail account to send the warning.

It also prosecuted Gen. David Petraeus for espionage for keeping secret and top-secret documents in an unlocked drawer in his desk inside his guarded home. It alleged that he shared those secrets with a friend who also had a security clearance, but it dropped those charges.

The obligation of those to whom state secrets have been entrusted to safeguard them is a rare area in which federal criminal prosecutions can be based on the defendant’s negligence. Stated differently, to prosecute Clinton for espionage, the government need not prove that she intended to expose the secrets.

The evidence of Clinton’s negligence is overwhelming. The FBI now has more than 1,300 protected emails that she received on her insecure server and sent to others -- some to their insecure servers. These emails contained confidential, secret or top-secret information, the negligent exposure of which is a criminal act.

One of the top-secret emails she received and forwarded contained a photo taken from an American satellite of the North Korean nuclear facility that detonated a device just last week. Because Clinton failed to safeguard that email, she exposed to hackers and thus to the North Koreans the time, place and manner of American surveillance of them. This type of data is in the highest category of protected secrets.

Last weekend, the State Department released two smoking guns -- each an email from Clinton to a State Department subordinate. One instructed a subordinate who was having difficulty getting a document to Clinton that she had not seen by using a secure State Department fax machine to use an insecure fax machine. The other instructed another subordinate to remove the “confidential” or “secret” designation from a document Clinton had not seen before sending it to her. These two emails show a pattern of behavior utterly heedless of the profound responsibilities of the secretary of state, repugnant to her sworn agreement to safeguard state secrets, and criminal at their essence.

Also this past weekend, my Fox News colleagues Catherine Herridge and Pamela Browne learned from government sources that the FBI is investigating whether Clinton made any decisions as secretary of state to benefit her family foundation or her husband’s speaking engagements. If so, this would be profound public corruption.

This investigation was probably provoked by several teams of independent researchers -- some of whom are financial experts and have published their work -- who have been investigating the Clinton Foundation for a few years. They have amassed a treasure-trove of documents demonstrating fraud and irregularities in fundraising and expenditures, and they have shown a pattern of favorable State Department treatment of foreign entities coinciding with donations by those entities to the Clinton Foundation and their engaging former President Bill Clinton to give speeches.

There are now more than 100 FBI agents investigating Hillary Clinton. Her denial that she is at the core of their work is political claptrap with no connection to reality. It is inconceivable that the FBI would send such vast resources in the present dangerous era on a wild-goose chase.

It is the consensus of many of us who monitor government behavior that the FBI will recommend indictment. That recommendation will go to Attorney General Loretta Lynch, who, given Clinton’s former status in the government and current status in the Democratic Party, will no doubt consult the White House.

If a federal grand jury were to indict Clinton for espionage or corruption, that would be fatal to her political career.
If the FBI recommends indictment and the attorney general declines to do so, expect Saturday Night Massacre-like leaks of draft indictments, whistleblower revelations and litigation, and FBI resignations, led by the fiercely independent and intellectually honest FBI Director James Comey himself.
That would be fatal to Clinton’s political career, as well.

2a)Tim Allen Compares the Clintons to Herpes: ‘Just When You Think They’re Gone, They Show Up Again’

Actor-comedian Tim Allen blasted Hillary Clinton in a recent interview, comparing her and her husband Bill to a venereal disease while praising Donald Trump as a candidate who “might be able to do the stuff that really needs fixing.”
In an extensive interview with The Hollywood Reporter to discuss his sitcom hit Last Man Standing, Allen weighed in on the state of the 2016 presidential race, telling the outlet that the Democrat party of Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT)16%and Hillary Clinton has turned into the “free sh*t party.”“Unearned responses, unearned praise, unearned income: I have opinions about it,” the 62-year-old actor toldTHR when asked what “riled” him up the most.
“When you watch the debates, on both sides you see clowns who say sh*t that ain’t ever gonna happen, but lately one party is the free sh*t party,” Allen explained. “When you say you’re going to get free education, free health care, f— free brown loafers — of course everybody’s going to say yes to that. But you don’t mean it. That’s how you rack up debt, and debt is killing us. Whatever party is going to get us out of debt is my party.”
Allen also lit into both Clinton and Sanders, specifically: “Bernie Sanders, as nice a guy as he is, none of that sh*t’s going to happen,” he said.
But the comedian saved his sharpest barbs for Clinton. When asked why the writers at Last Man Standing have skewered Hillary and not Trump, Allen compared the Clintons to a venereal disease.
“We have a very liberal writing staff, so I’m surprised they haven’t taken a shot at [Trump],” he told THR. “But we’re not sure he’s going to last, whereas the Clintons are like herpes: Just when you think they’re gone, they show up again.”
On Last Man Standing, Allen stars as Mike Baxter, a conservative-leaning “man’s man” who finds his worldview challenged in a home with three daughters and a successful wife. Allen told THR that he “definitely” feels the line between himself and his character has blurred over the course of the show’s five-season run:
If you go see my stand-up at the Mirage in Vegas — I’m on a concert tour this year, as I have been for 30 years — it tends to be very angry about self-reliance. I’m not going to say it’s conservative, but it certainly is not left. For most of my life, I’ve been taxed above 38 percent. When you’re a young guy working the road and literally close to half of what you make goes to people who don’t help you at all but just bitch about it the whole time, that’s where I come from. I come from “no taxation without representation,” and it manifests itself in very peculiar points of view.
Allen also knocked Trump, saying the Republican front-runner “can’t send everybody to Mexico or whatever the f–k he said.”
“But give that guy the roads, bridges, infrastructure, power grid — just have him fix that sh*t for four years. He’s good at that,” added Allen. “And he’s a businessman so he understands how debt load works. Forget the stupid sh*t he says about immigrants. That’s just ignorant. But he might be able to do the stuff that really needs fixing.”
3) Secretary General of the United Nations Ban Ki-moon justifies terrorism and incitement:  “It is human nature to react to occupation.”

Actually, stabbing a pregnant woman or a mother of six is not human nature. Instead of making excuses for murders, Ban Ki-moon should take the first step towards eradicating terrorism and follow International Law.
UN Security Council Resolution 1377:
“Reaffirms its unequivocal condemnation of all acts, methods and practices of terrorism as criminal and unjustifiable, regardless of their motivation, in all their forms and manifestations, wherever and by whomever committed.” Thomas L. Friedman, New York Times, April 1, 2002:
“The world must understand that the Palestinians have not chosen suicide bombing out of 'desperation' stemming from the Israeli occupation … To begin with, a lot of other people in the world are desperate, yet they have not gone around strapping dynamite to themselves. Let's be very clear: Palestinians have adopted suicide bombing as a strategic choice, not out of desperation. This threatens all civilization because if suicide bombing is allowed to work in Israel, then, like hijacking and airplane bombing, it will be copied and will eventually lead to a bomber strapped with a nuclear device threatening entire nations. That is why the whole world must see this Palestinian suicide strategy defeated.”

In First Public Visit to US Mosque, Obama’s Choice Hosted Global Jihadist Leaders

President Obama plans to visit a U.S. mosque for the first time, but the one he's chosen has hosted at least two major jihadist leaders.

Barack Obama is in the final stretch of his time as President of the United States. It was announced on Sunday that Obama will make his first public appearance at a U.S. mosque to show solidarity with Muslims, whom many blame for all those terrorist attacks they commit.
The White House announced that Obama would be visiting the Islamic Society of Baltimore, which is located in Woodlawn, Maryland, just west of Baltimore. The ISB started in 1969 as a prayer group at Johns Hopkins University, which is located in Baltimore, according to the mosque’s website. A little more than a decade later, the community purchased an eight acre plot of land where the mosque is now located, as well as a school and a multi-purpose hall.
The vision of the ISB is “to be the anchor of a growing Muslim community with diverse backgrounds, democratically governed, relating to one another with inclusiveness and tolerance, and interacting with neighbors in an Islamic exemplary manner.”
Background information about the ISB uncovered a singularly alarming fact: two of the greatest supporters and promoters of a global Islamic caliphate spoke at ISB at least once, according to a “former regular.” This person commented that because it is located near Washington, D.C., “often celebrity guest speakers show up out of the blue. Like Dr. Israr Ahmed, Anwar al-Awlaki and many others.”
So who are those two celebrity guest speakers mentioned by the commenter on Salatomatic, which describes itself as “the most comprehensive guide to mosques and Islamic schools?
None other than two of the most influential jihadists this planet has ever seen.
Most Americans will recognize the name Anwar al-Awlaki, the recruiter for al Qaeda who was responsible for so much terrorism that he was the first American the U.S. has ever put on the  CIA’s “kill or capture list.”
Al-Awlaki preached to several of the 9/11 bombers; was in contact with the Fort Hood military psychiatrist, Nidal Malik Hasan, just before the shootings; and was believed to be involved in the planning of the attempted bombing by Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab, the “underwear bomber,” as well as having numerous other terrorist credentials.
At various times al-Awlaki was believed to be working with Hamas. He also stated online, just after the 9/11 terrorist attacks, that Israeli intelligence agents may have been responsible for the attacks.
Al-Awlaki “is a magnetic character,” said Philip Mudd, a veteran of the C.I.A.’s Counterterrorism Center who spent nearly five years as a top F.B.I. intelligence adviser. “He’s a powerful orator in a revolutionary movement,” Mudd said in 2010.
This charismatic jihadist was also the one who, in 2010, put a fatwa on the life of a Seattle, Washington cartoonist who dared to launch “Everybody Draw Muhammed Day.” That reporter, Molly Norris, was forced to change her name, move and go into hiding.
Numerous terrorists said their inspiration came from al-Awlaki, and many incidents of terrorism were traced to al-Awlaki whose charisma and ability to use the internet to influence followers around the world was unequaled. This terrorist was killed in a U.S. drone attack in late Sept., 2011.
The second “celebrity guest speaker” mentioned by the ISB commenter was Israr Ahmed. Who was Ahmed? A Pakistani with ties to two of the major Pakistani Islamic jihadist groups, Tanzeem-e-Islami and Jamaat-e-Islami.
Israr Ahmed believed in the use of revolution to bring about the caliphate, and withdrew from Jamaat-e-Islami when it chose to engage in “electoral activities,” which was fundamentally contrary to his own revolutionary views.
Tanzeem-e-Islami seeks to establish a global caliphate, is anti-modernity and wants Sharia to control all spheres of life.
According to a report in Asia Times, Ahmed spoke in 1995 at an Islamic Society of North America convention in Columbus, Ohio. At that convention, Ahmed said:
The process of the revival of Islam in different parts of the world is real. A final showdown between the Muslim world and the non-Muslim world, which has been captured by the Jews, would soon take place. The Gulf War was just a rehearsal for the coming conflict.
Just because two leaders of several different radical Islamist jihadist groups spoke at the ISB does not mean that the mosque promotes the ideologies of those two men.
But it is worth finding out how carefully this mosque was vetted.
