The liberal left has succeeded in turning Americans against Islam

After 9/11 the America right got justifiably worried–the American left got deviously manipulative and dishonest.




Prior to 9/11, most Americans thought and cared little about the Islamic world. Prior to the scandal of Iran issuing a fatwa on the London based author Salman Rushdie in 1989, that number was even less.

But when the twin towers of the World Trade Center came crashing down, that all changed. America had a new enemy, but the problem was that at first, most Americans were not sure who that enemy was.

Shortly after 9/11, the mainstream media told the public that the enemy were Muslims and shortly thereafter, that metamorphosed into all of Islam.

Suddenly, conservative radio hosts who had built their careers on moaning about what came out of of Monica Lewinsky’s mouth, were suddenly curious about the texts of the Holy Koran…except that they weren’t. They had all ready made up their minds that the Koran was more or less a Wahhabi text that read something like a Saudi funded al-Qaeda propaganda video.

As morose as this sounds, it is objectively understandable. America for all its wealth is not a particularly worldly country, just as many vast nations have historically not been, especially prior to the age of compulsory education and mass communication. People in America were upset and frightened after 9/11, they had every right to be.

But then the devious sectarian liberal left stepped in and any chance for a non-biased discussion about Islam became impossible in America.

The sectarian left realised that defending Islam, as defined by the uneducated sectors of the American right, could make them money and give them air time. A liberal talk radio station, Air America was launched on the basis of opposing Bush and the newly anti-Islamic Rush Limbaughs of the world. Suddenly the ‘Islmophobia industry’ was born and like good Hollywood capitalists the American left rushed to get a piece of the pie.

Rather than actually bothering to learn about the vast, diverse and manifold Islamic world, they simply accepted the right-wing talk radio definition of Islam as barbaric and terroristic.

What did they then do? They embraced Wahhabism as the legitimate voice of Islam saying that the west should come to ‘understand’ it. They said that accepting Wahhabism is accepting ‘diversity’, even though the  majority of Muslims and Arab Christians hate Wahhabism because it is the least diverse and least accepting form of pseudo-Islamic apostasy that they’ve ever come across.

If America had a liberal left with a real conscience let alone a real collective brain, they would have, should have and could have understood that secular Islamic majority societies hate the same things most Americans hate (jihadism, terrorism, Wahhabism) and more importantly, they love the same things most ordinary Americans love (family, relaxation, trips to the beach, meals with friends, piety and patriotism).

Instead, American liberals did the Saudis and their deep state allies a service, by become their slick, polished, refined apologists. By refusing the shine a light on how Islam is practised in moderate, progressive, modern societies like Syria, Iraq, pre-war Libya, Egypt, Russia, Lebanon and Palestine, they focused instead on Wahhabism and how all of its accoutrements from the regressive female face covering to a prohibition on what most in America understand as ‘free speech’, were really just expressions of  a ‘rich and diverse culture’. US liberals said and continue to say that Wahhabism is the oppressed voice of Islam, one oppressed by people like Rush Limbaugh and more recently by Paul Joseph Watson. In reality, Wahhabism is a global oppressor whose leaders couldn’t care less about what Rush Limbaugh or anyone else in conservative or ‘alt-right’ media has ever said.

The first victims of American liberal apologists for Wahhabism are the women of countries like Syria who are often more educated, more multi-lingual, more worldly, more beautiful and more pious than the ultra-liberal women of San Francisco and New York.

Their next collective class of victims are an American public who now hate Islam, less  because of what the post-9/11 right said, but more because of how the liberals turned pseudo-Muslims into the ‘real deal’, in the eyes of America. They legitimised something as ‘real Islam’ that most Muslims believe is an aberration and a vile one at that.

Now when Donald Trump’s alt-right supporters see him in Saudi Arabia, they are criticising him from ‘being nice’ to ISLAM, where they should criticising him for ‘being nice’ to a terrorist supporting Saudi regime.

In turning oppressors into victims, real, honest, moderate, secular Muslims who are the vast majority of the world’s Muslims, are once again left without a voice in the land of the free. But this shouldn’t surprise anyone in an America and wider west where self professed ‘left wing Zionists’ have become apologists for the illegal actions of the Israeli regime by implying that Tel Aviv represents the Old Testament, just as they say that Riyadh represents the Koran. The truth couldn’t be further from this twist of propaganda.

When it comes to manipulating and silencing real debate, the American left are far more asute than the alt-right could ever hope to be.

Putin, Trump meet in Helsinki for first bilateral summit

The Helsinki summit is the first ever full-fledged meeting between Vladimir Putin and Donald Trump. Their previous encounters were brief talks on the sidelines of the G20 and APEC summits in 2017.

Vladimir Rodzianko



Russian President Vladimir Putin and US President Donald Trump are meeting in the Finnish capital of Helsinki for their first bilateral one-on-one meeting.

Trump arrived in the Finland capital a day early, while the jet of Putin, who wrapped up his nation’s hosting of the World Cup Sunday, touched down around 1 p.m. local time and the Russian president’s motorcade whisked him straight to the palace where the two world leaders are meeting.

Trump signed an August 2017 law imposing additional sanctions on Russia. The law bars Trump from easing many sanctions without Congress’ approval, but he can offer some relief without a nod from Congress.

Almost 700 Russian people and companies are under U.S. sanctions. Individuals face limits on their travel and freezes on at least some of their assets, while some top Russian state banks and companies, including oil and gas giants, are effectively barred from getting financing through U.S. banks and markets.

The agenda of the summit hasn’t been officially announced yet, though, the presidents are expected to discuss global crises, such as the Syrian conflict and Ukraine, as well as bilateral relations.

Stay tuned for updates…

“Foreign entity, NOT RUSSIA” hacked Hillary Clinton’s emails (Video)

Rep. Louie Gohmert (R-Tx): Hillary Clinton’s cache of 30,000 emails was hacked by foreign actor, and it was not Russia.

Alex Christoforou



A stunning revelation that hardly anyone in the mainstream media is covering.

Fox News gave Louie Gohmert (R-Tx) the opportunity to explain what was going on during his questioning of Peter Strzok, when the the Texas Congressman stated that a “foreign entity, NOT RUSSIA” hacked Hillary Clinton’s emails.

Aside from this segment on Fox News, this story is not getting any coverage, and we know why. It destroys the entire ‘Russia hacked Hillary’ narrative.

Gohmert states that this evidence is irrefutable and shows that a foreign actor, not connected to Russia in any way, intercepted and distributed Hillary Clinton’s cache of 30,000 emails.

As we sift through the ashes of Thursday’s dumpster-fire Congressional hearing with still employed FBI agent Peter Strzok, Luke Rosiak of the Daily Caller plucked out a key exchange between Rep. Louie Gohmert (R-Tx) and Strzok which revealed a yet-unknown bombshell about the Clinton email case.

Nearly all of Hillary Clinton’s emails on her homebrew server went to a foreign entity that isn’t Russia. When this was discovered by the Intelligence Community Inspector General (ICIG), IG Chuck McCullough sent his investigator Frank Ruckner and an attorney to notify Strzok along with three other people about the “anomaly.”

Four separate attempts were also made to notify DOJ Inspector General Michael Horowitz to brief him on the massive security breach, however Horowitz “never returned the call.” Recall that Horowitz concluded last month that despite Strzok’s extreme bias towards Hillary Clinton and against Donald Trump – none of it translated to Strzok’s work at the FBI.

In other words; Strzok, while investigating Clinton’s email server, completely ignored the fact that most of Clinton’s emails were sent to a foreign entity – while IG Horowitz simply didn’t want to know about it.

Daily Caller reports…

The Intelligence Community Inspector General (ICIG) found an “anomaly on Hillary Clinton’s emails going through their private server, and when they had done the forensic analysis, they found that her emails, every single one except four, over 30,000, were going to an address that was not on the distribution list,” Republican Rep. Louie Gohmert of Texas said during a hearing with FBI official Peter Strzok.

Gohmert continued..

“It was going to an unauthorized source that was a foreign entity unrelated to Russia.”

Strzok admitted to meeting with Ruckner but said he couldn’t remember the “specific” content of their discussion.

“The forensic examination was done by the ICIG and they can document that,” Gohmert said, “but you were given that information and you did nothing with it.”

According to Zerohedge “Mr. Horowitz got a call four times from someone wanting to brief him about this, and he never returned the call,” Gohmert said – and Horowitz wouldn’t return the call.

And while Peter Strzok couldn’t remember the specifics of his meeting with the IG about the giant “foreign entity” bombshell, he texted this to his mistress Lisa Page when the IG discovered the “(C)” classification on several of Clinton’s emails – something the FBI overlooked:

“Holy cow … if the FBI missed this, what else was missed? … Remind me to tell you to flag for Andy [redacted] emails we (actually ICIG) found that have portion marks (C) on a couple of paras. DoJ was Very Concerned about this.”

In November of 2017, IG McCullough – an Obama appointee – revealed to Fox News that he received pushback when he tried to tell former DNI James Clapper about the foreign entity which had Clinton’s emails and other anomalies.

Instead of being embraced for trying to expose an illegal act, seven senators including Dianne Feinstein (D-Ca) wrote a letter accusing him of politicizing the issue.

“It’s absolutely irrelevant whether something is marked classified, it is the character of the information,” he said. Fox News reports…

McCullough said that from that point forward, he received only criticism and an “adversarial posture” from Congress when he tried to rectify the situation.

“I expected to be embraced and protected,” he said, adding that a Hill staffer “chided” him for failing to consider the “political consequences” of the information he was blowing the whistle on.

Donald Trump plays good cop and bad cop with a weak Theresa May (Video)

The Duran – News in Review – Episode 55.

Alex Christoforou



US President Donald Trump’s state visit to the UK was momentous, not for its substance, but rather for its sheer entertainment value.

Trump started his trip to the United Kingdom blasting Theresa May for her inability to negotiate a proper Brexit deal with the EU.  Trump ended his visit holding hands with the UK Prime Minister during a press conference where the most ‘special relationship’ between the two allies was once again reaffirmed.

Protests saw giant Trump “baby balloons” fly over London’s city center, as Trump played was his own good cop and bad cop to the UK PM, outside London at the Chequers…often times leaving May’s head spinning.

Even as Trump has left London, he remains front and center in the mind of Theresa May, who has now stated that Trump advised her to “sue” the European Union to resolve the tense negotiations over Brexit.

Trump had mentioned to reporters on Friday at a joint press conference with Theresa May that he had given the British leader a suggestion that she found too “brutal.”

Asked Sunday on the BBC’s Andrew Marr Show what that suggestion was, May: “He told me I should sue the EU. Not go into negotiation, sue them.” May added…

“What the president also said at that press conference was `Don’t walk away. Don’t walk away from the negotiations. Then you’re stuck.”‘

The Duran’s Alex Christoforou and Editor-in-Chief Alexander Mercouris summarize what was a state visit like no other, as Trump trolled the UK PM from beginning to end, and left London knowing that he got the better of a weakened British Prime Minister, who may not survive in office past next week.

It wasn’t exactly clear what Trump meant. The revelation came after explosive and undiplomatic remarks Trump made this week about May’s leadership — especially her handling of the Brexit negotiations — as he made his first official visit to Britain.

In an interview with The Sun newspaper published Thursday — just as May was hosting Trump at a lavish black-tie dinner — Trump said the British leader’s approach likely “killed” chances of a free-trade deal with the United States. He said he had told May how to conduct Brexit negotiations, “but she didn’t listen to me.”

He also praised May’s rival, Boris Johnson, who quit last week as foreign secretary to protest May’s Brexit plans. Trump claimed Johnson would make a “great prime minister.”

The comments shocked many in Britain — even May’s opponents — and threatened to undermine May’s already fragile hold on power. Her Conservative government is deeply split between supporters of a clean break with the EU and those who want to keep close ties with the bloc, Britain’s biggest trading partner.
