Ex-FBI agent who accused Obama of treason loses lucrative gig training law enforcement officers

Published

on

Ex-FBI agent John Guandolo lost a gig training law enforcement officers in Texas this week. Cedar Valley College cancelled the training event that was scheduled for June 3.

The college had been criticized for inviting Guandolo, who has been characterized by the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC) as “a disreputable character, who regularly attacks the US government, claims that the director of the Central Intelligence Agency is a secret Muslim agent for the Saudi government and says that American Muslims ‘do not have a First Amendment right to do anything’.”

The SPLC reported that in 2012, Guandolo accused then-nominee to head the CIA, John Brennan, of having secretly converted to Islam while in Saudi Arabia and that he was seeking to undermine the constitution in order to further radical Islamic ideas.

When it was announced that Guandolo would be speaking at Cedar Valley College, the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) objected on the basis that Guandolo sowed hatred between American Muslims and their neighbors. “We would be happy to help provide alternate training relying on accurate and balanced information, and upholding American values of justice and equality,” the Dallas-Fort Worth chapter’s executive director said.

Guandolo’s measured response to CAIR was to write the following:

“What does CAIR have in common with ISIS, Al Qaeda, and the Taliban?

It is a terrorist organization which hates and violently opposes Free Speech.

Like ISIS, Al Qaeda, and the Taliban, CAIR is a jihadi organization. It is Hamas in the United States.

Don’t let the suits fool you.”

In late December, 2015, Guandolo said on a program that he hoped that “President Trump” would throw President Obama in jail for treason for promoting Marxism and Islamic terrorism.

He also issued a veiled threat against President Obama when he talked about purging the system.

“I think whoever the next president is, whether it’s Mr. Cruz or Mr. Trump or somebody else, they are going to have to literally purge, and I’m going to use the word ‘purge,’ the system,” he said. “They’re going to have to clean house in the bureaucracy for communists, Marxists and jihadists that are inside our system.”

It’s not clear that Guandolo has connected his having issued threats against the president with the fact that a law enforcement group may not think him the best instructor for a police training.

Guandolo resigned from his post with the feds in 2008 after admitting to having a relationship with a confidential source “that could damage an investigation.” He was also found to have solicited a $75,000 “donation” from an anti-terrorism group that was part of a corruption case against Louisiana Congressman William Jefferson.

Trump spent 45 minutes talking with cast of right-wing play dramatizing ‘Deep State’ conspiracy theories: report

Published

The coronavirus emergency has given President Donald Trump one of the most daunting tests of his administration, with less than a year to go before he stands for re-election.

And yet in the midst of all the chaos, one thing the president found time to do on Thursday was meet with the cast of a bizarre right-wing play dramatizing the supposed "deep state" plot at the FBI to frame Trump in the Russia investigation.

According to The Daily Beast, Trump spent 45 minutes talking with the people behind "FBI Lovebirds: Undercovers," which focuses on the affair between FBI officials Peter Strzok and Lisa Page. The leading roles of Strzok and Page were played by Dean Cain, the former Superman actor, and Kristy Swanson, who played the starring role in the 1992 Buffy the Vampire Slayer movie.

All US Navy ships in the Pacific near countries with coronavirus ordered to self-quarantine for 14 days

CNN National Security reporter Ryan Browne tweeted Thursday that the U.S. Navy has ordered all of its vessels in the Pacific that have been near countries with COVID-19, also known as the coronavirus, "to remain at sea for at least 14 days before pulling into another port in order to monitor sailors for any symptoms of the virus."

Health experts have said that the two-week period should give enough time for infected people to become aware that they are sick.

The highly-contagious disease has spread very quickly in South Korea and California after public exposure. The first person verified with "community-spread" transmission was identified just outside of Sacramento, California.

‘Most wicked to ever represent Cleveland’: Jim Jordan ripped by hometown paper for covering up sex scandal

Published

on

President Trump likes to call his enemies 'sleaze bags" and Ohio GOP Rep. Jim Jordan a "warrior," but according to Cleveland Plain Dealer columnist Brent Larkin, Trump has it backward.

While Jordan may not seem like the worse politician to ever come out of Ohio, the "crimes" he's committed "don't involve felonies," according to Larkin. "They are crimes against America, crimes involving total disregard for the principles of democracy, trampling the truth on behalf of a corrupt president who revels in his inhumanity."

Watching Jordan question witnesses during the House impeachment inquiry particularly incensed Larkin, who writes that it was like watching a man who "spent his childhood gleefully ripping wings off flies."
