Trump Administration will not renew program to fight domestic terrorism.

Unbelievable. 

Courtesy of NBC News:

The Trump administration, which already canceled a grant for a group that fights white supremacist terror, now appears unwilling to renew the anti-domestic terror program under which it was funded, despite recent high-profile attacks like the Pittsburgh synagogue shooting and data showing a spike in attacks on religious minorities.

The Obama administration launched the Countering Violent Extremism Grant Program in 2016 to fight domestic terrorism. Managed by the Department of Homeland Security, the program was given $10 million to distribute.

In the last days of the Obama administration, DHS awarded the money to more than two dozen groups around the country to counter violent extremism of all kinds, including right-wing extremism. Data from the Global Terrorism Database shows there was a spike in attacks on American religious organizations in 2016-17.

The money paid for the development of new approaches to prevent terrorism before it begins. Programs that develop training materials for law enforcement, mental health counselors and schools to better identify warning signs of extremism so that terrorism can be averted were designated to receive funds.

Other programs built relationships, like a project that pairs Boston Police Department officers with young Somali-Americans. Another program in Illinois was developing the best ways to intervene with people who are leaning toward extremism before it’s too late.

But weeks after President Trump took office, the funding was put on hold.

Those funds were eventually distributed, but the administration has no plans to continue issuing these funds past June 2019, saying that it was a “one-time” funding opportunity.

Yeah, because it’s not like there is an obvious, well-documented reason for continuing these programs or anything, right? 

Let’s be clear, Donald Trump is the single biggest inspiration for domestic terrorism in this country today. 

And he will obviously do nothing to stop it.

    Marching order$> ‘I am a nationalist!’ OK

    “False-flag theories are not just a way of denying the plain FACTS but of reversing their meaning to confound your enemy.”
    “The CIA has used false-flag operations from its inception in 1947.” CIA counterintelligence chief James Angleton began opening the {Overseas} mail of EVERY persons suspected of communist or subversive activities {AKA being GAY like Hoover} on a massive scale in 1958. {~IT~ started in WW2} He shared the take with Federal Bureau of Investigation director J Edgar Hoover, and the Counterintelligence Program, known as COINTELPRO, took off.”
    {documents show that the FBI still engages in COINTELPRO behavior by surveilling Black Lives Matter.}
    “When such operations were exposed by US Senate investigators in the 1970s, the American people learned the reality: that the CIA and National Security Agency used false-flag tactics to create an “incident” in the Gulf of Tonkin in August 1964 that was used to justify escalation of the war in Vietnam.”
    “the 2003 invasion of Iraq when the White House under president George W Bush and vice-president Dick Cheney used a forged letter to create the impression Saddam Hussein was seeking to obtain material for nuclear weapons.” FuckUdickcheney.

      U.S. military hackers have been given the go-ahead to gain access to Russian cybersystems as part of potential retaliation for any meddling in America’s elections.
      Here’s how the process works: Military planners and cyberexperts from the civilian intelligence agencies start by finding weaknesses in software security as part of something called the Vulnerabilities Equities Process.

    Oh the label spin. I would not call the dotard a “nationalist” I call Donald John Trump “A Greedy Global Capitalist” slob. Him and people like “him” are the reason America is declining in Manufacturing, Agriculture, Healthcare, Education, Energy, Voting, Consumer Safety, Product Safety, Debt., Gun laws, etc etc. Citizen United the WORST supreme court decision in History must be overturn immediately.It is the cause of our political climate today. Each justice that voted for that? should be exposed for it. The NRA? that group must be SUED for flooding this country in assault rifles, gun shows and idiots waving guns around. Let us hope that Americans vote and that we put an end to the fleecing of America. Let us hope we can get it right. Throw the lying RepubliCONs out of congress, throw them out at State, County and City level. It is the toxic waste of time and money that they promote. TAX and call out the Greedy Global Capitalist slobs like trump.

    They had no Jewish friends; they hardly knew any Jews, which was not unusual, considering less than 1% of Germany’s population was Jewish. They simply believed all people were the same: there was no master race and no subhumans. They would not compromise that belief to curry favor in changing political circumstances or hateful ideologies. They were guided by a very simple but profound rule: The Golden Rule, from the Sermon on the Mount. “Do unto others, as you would have others do unto you.”

    In his tribute to Pauline for standing up to the Nazi women of Laubach, Friedrich said a monument should be erected to his brave wife.”

    “Rep. Claudia Tenney (R-NY) said Thursday that it would be a waste of federal tax dollars to look into how to stop tens of thousand of annual gun deaths.” ” 40,000 people DIE ANNUALLY from gun deaths in the United States.”
    the National Rifle Association already has done all the research we need.
    In 1996, the National Rifle Association and one of its champions, then-Rep. Jay Dickey (R-AR) pushed through Congress a legislative provision that effectively blocked Centers for Disease Control doing any research on the causes of gun violence in America. In 2015, after a mass shooting in Oregon, even Dickey himself suggested that his amendment should be scrapped and that federal research was needed to find ways to stop the problem. Following the horrific mass killings in Parkland, Fla., Congress passed a bill in March that lifted the prohibition but did not appropriate the funds for such research.
    “We’ve spent a fortune studying gun violence,” she claimed. “One of the things the NRA does, it was actually founded in New York City. The prime purpose, the reason that [the] NRA was founded was to provide education and safety for people handling firearms. So we want to spend more tax dollars to study something that we already know a lot about? I don’t think that’s a good use of taxpayer money.”
    “claims in February, when she wrongly suggested that mass murders are usually done by Democrats.”

    Meanwhile the third wife cost the taxpayers $95,000 for one day in Cairo, she didn’t even stay overnight…what exactly was this money spent on?

    More for the Democrats to investigate
    ====================================
    Hotel bill for first lady’s trip to Cairo topped $95K

    First lady Melania Trump’s trip to Cairo cost taxpayers more than $95,000, according to federal spending records.

    Trump and her team stayed at the Semiramis Intercontinental Cairo during her trip to Egypt last month, according to records, which were first reported by Quartz. The record does not say how many rooms were rented or how the money was allocated.

    A spokeswoman for the first lady, however, said Trump did not “stay the night” at the hotel. She spent the day attending meetings and visiting the pyramids, according to spokeswoman Stephanie Grisham.

    According to Quartz, a night at the hotel can cost between $119 and $699. The description of the expenditure says “FLOTUS visit hotel rooms,” but offers no further details.

    The Trump family has come under fire on numerous occasions for costing taxpayers large sums of money.

    A TMZ report in September found President Trump’s golf cart rentals in the U.S. have cost taxpayers $300,675 since he took office.

    Democratic lawmakers in July penned a letter to the acting inspector general of the Department of Homeland Security demanding details on Secret Service expenses during Trump’s trip to his golf course in Scotland earlier that month. The Democrats were responding to a report that indicated Trump’s time on his Turnberry golf course cost taxpayers up to $1.2 million.

      Maybe the third wife needed places to change her outfits. I cannot forget the 1920’s-style slacks and colonial-style fedora she wore that day. And probably lots of places to change her shoes. And then there’s the time needed to have her makeup applied, to say nothing of the time to brush her too-long hair. Hard to be the third wife – modeling with clothes on rather than off.

      Not only did she not stay overnight, but she was only in Cairo for 6 HOURS, so what in the hell did we pay for?

    I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic.
    the journalist’s fiancee criticised the US reaction as “devoid of moral foundation”.
    Turkey’s chief prosecutor on Wednesday confirmed for the first time that Khashoggi was strangled as soon as he entered the consulate on October 2 as part of a planned hit, and his body was then dismembered and destroyed.

    “We now see that it wasn’t just cut up, they got rid of the body by dissolving it,” Yasin Aktay, an official in Turkey’s ruling party, told the Hurriyet newspaper on Friday.” “They aimed to ensure no sign of the body was left.”

    – ‘Brutal, barbaric and ruthless’ –

    In her article, Cengiz noted that the one-month anniversary of Khashoggi’s death fell on the UN’s International Day to End Impunity for Crimes against Journalists.

    “We must all send a clear message that authoritarian regimes cannot kill journalists ever again,”

    “The white supremacists are not right-wing, they’re socialists!” “They’re socialists, they believe in big government!”
    “Why would someone who believes in big government be right wing? Why would someone who… uh…”

    At this point, the Trump supporter let out multiple exasperated sighs.

    “First of all,” he continued once he regained his composure. “The Nazis, there’s, like, 50 of them in the whole country.
    There’s no association with them in the Republican Party.” . “Why would someone who believes in big government be right wing?
    Why would someone who… uh…” “They’re a bunch of crazies!”

    “No, don’t you do that,” a clearly flustered King argued. “Do not associate me with that shooter. I knew you were an ambusher when you walked in the room, but there’s no basis for this, and you get no question for that, and you get no answer. No! You’re done! We don’t play these games here in Iowa!”
    “The Des Moines Register, where they know him best, described King thusly, “King has vilified undocumented immigrants as drug mules, palled around with alt-right international leaders and declared himself the defender of the white man’s culture.”
