Stop Elliot Abrams

The Trump Administration is pondering the appointment of Elliot Abrams to the powerful position of Deputy Secretary of State. 

If you do not know who Elliot Abrams is, consider this. Dr. Ron Paul & his son Senator Rand Paul, along with the editors of Antiwar have blitzed social media warning against letting this guy quietly be confirmed.

From the artitle on Abrams:

Abrams stands for everything the President said he opposes: regime change, globalism, hostility to Russia, endless wars on behalf of ungrateful “allies.”…..In addition, Abrams was indicted and convicted in the infamous “Contra-gate” scandal of the 1980s, when he collaborated in a plot to cover up paying ransom to Iran for the hostages they had taken.

Although he was pardoned by George HW Bush, this hardly alters his criminal status – and that’s the least of his crimes. During that same period he was instrumental in supporting not only the Nicaraguan contras, but also the terrorist “death squads” that wreaked devastation on El Salvador – a horrific phenomenon that led directly to the chaos that has turned that country into a killing field ruled by criminals.

Along with the summary above, the website also links to the White House and Congressional website to contact your Senators.


Benghazi Exposed – Gun Running

I sure hope Rand Paul points out Hilary Clinton’s involvement in this shitshow during the 2016 election.

 The Citizens Commission on Benghazi, a self-selected group of former top military officers, CIA insiders and think-tankers, declared Tuesday in Washington that a seven-month review of the deadly 2012 terrorist attack has determined that it could have been prevented – if the U.S. hadn’t been helping to arm al-Qaeda militias throughout Libya a year earlier.


‘The United States switched sides in the war on terror with what we did in Libya, knowingly facilitating the provision of weapons to known al-Qaeda militias and figures,‘ Clare Lopez, a member of the commission and a former CIA officer, told MailOnline.

She blamed the Obama administration for failing to stop half of a $1 billion United Arab Emirates arms shipment from reaching al-Qaeda-linked militants.


‘Remember, these weapons that came into Benghazi were permitted to enter by our armed forces who were blockading the approaches from air and sea,’ Lopez claimed. ‘They were permitted to come in. … [They] knew these weapons were coming in, and that was allowed..

The intelligence community was part of that, the Department of State was part of that, and certainly that means that the top leadership of the United States, our national security leadership, and potentially Congress – if they were briefed on this – also knew about this.’

The members of the commission note that the Obama’s administrations shift from Gaddafi to the extremists trying to overthrow him, for whatever reason (nationalization of oil) lead to these weapons ending up in Syria:


                ‘Some look at it as treason,’ said Wayne Simmons, a former CIA officer who participated in the commission’s research. Retired Rear Admiral Chuck Kubic, another commission member, told reporters Tuesday that those weapons are now ‘all in Syria.’ –Admiral Chuck Kubic


Retired Admiral Chuck Kubic had some harsh words for the executive branch:


                ‘We had a leader who had won the Nobel Peace Prize,’ Kubic said, ‘but who was unwilling to give peace a chance for 72 hours.’


While fellow admiral, James Lyons has a theory on the Benghazi raid:


                “…told the group that he believes the raid on the Benghazi compound was intended as a kidnapping exercise, aimed at snatching U.S. Ambassador Chris Stevens and demanding a prisoner swap for the ‘blind sheikh’ Omar Abdel-Rahman.


Abdel-Rahman is serving a life sentence in federal prison for planning the 1993 bombing of the World Trade Center garage in New York City. He also masterminded a plan, later foiled, to blow up the United Nations, both the Lincoln and Holland tunnels, the George Washington Bridge and a federal building where the FBI had a base of operations.


A senior FBI source, Lyons said Tuesday, ‘told me that was the plan.’”


So, without actually admitting gun running, they admit that the guns ran to Syria. Hilary Clinton, supporting Al-Qaeda since 2012.
