Yemen’s Houthi Rebel Missile Attack on U.S. Naval Ships Part of Iran’s Proxy War
By ADM. JAMES “ACE” LYONS [RET.]
October 26, 2016 - San Francisco, CA - PipeLineNews.org - The recent missile attacks attributed to Yemeni Houthi rebels, with assistance from the Iranian Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) and Hezbollah, demonstrate Iran’s classic use of proxies to promote its political agenda. The Houthi rebels denied any involvement in the missile attacks. However, they certainly were not fired by camel herders. The Houthis never would have launched an attack on the U.S. Navy without being ordered to do so by their Iranian sponsors. To think otherwise would be delusional.
Iran has the failed to honor the Obama administration’s nuclear weapons agreement. There is actually no agreement, since nothing has been signed. With Russia’s support in Syria, Iran clearly feels emboldened to challenge the United States directly. And with the $150 billion sanctions relief windfall, plus planeloads of hard cash totaling more than $33 billion, Iran can easily expand its role as the leading state sponsor of terrorism, which is what we are witnessing in Yemen. The Iranian use of proxies has cost thousands of American lives, but, fortunately, this time they failed.
Clearly, Iran wants to be able to control the strategic Bab al Mandab Strait, which would give it de facto control of the Suez Canal. More than 10 percent of the world’s maritime shipping passes through that strait on a daily basis. Such control, when combined with control of the Strait of Hormuz, would give Iran control of all Arab oil shipments as well as all Israeli shipping emanating to and from the port of Eilat in the Red Sea. Iran would also like to see our 71-year alliance with Saudi Arabia terminated.
With the help of the IRGC and the Iranian proxy terrorist group Hezbollah, two radar sites were recently constructed outside of Yemen’s two principal Red Sea ports, Mokha and Hudaydah, which are currently under the control of the Houthi rebels. These sites, according to various reports, were operated by IRGC and Hezbollah radar and missile teams. The missiles fired were an upgraded version of the Chinese C-802 anti-ship missile. It should be remembered that on July 14, 2006, Hezbollah successfully fired a C-802 missile against the Israeli missile ship INS Hanit, inflicting heavy damage.[Read More]
As Iran and ISAF Forces Engage Mosul, ISIS Counterattacks Oil Rich Kirkuk
October 21, 2016 – Philadelphia, PA – PipeLineNews.org – According to an in-depth report from the Institute for the Study of War [see, ISIS attacks Kirkuk in Zone Defense to Divert Attention from Mosul ] as Iranian forces, similarly aligned militias and the ISAF’s pretend soldiers engage ISIS in the Iraqi city of Mosul, ISIS has responded, executing a clever diversionary strike against oil rich Kirkuk, located about midpoint between Mosul and Baghdad in the South of Iraq.
As is always the case in fast breaking stories of this nature, reports are a bit sketchy, but it appears that as of this writing the ISIS attack has had a markedly disruptive effect in Kirkuk:
“As many as 40 ISIS attackers supported by sleeper cells targeted multiple government facilities and landmarks in central and southern Kirkuk City, marking the first time that ISIS launched a major attack in the city since January 2015....Several ISIS attackers also stormed an “education building” in central Kirkuk, forcing Kurdish security forces to call in a Coalition airstrike to target the ISIS fighters holed up in the building. Unconfirmed reports indicate, however, the a Coalition airstrike may have targeted a Shi’a Husseiniyah (place of worship) in Daquq District, just south of Kirkuk, killing and wounding as many as 47 people and Peshmerga. ISW could not verify the report at the time of publication…”
Other news sources have established that ISIS fighters have taken as many as 500 civilians in Mosul intending to use them as “human shields.” Though some reading these filings may draw the conclusion that the presence of so many innocents will halt the assault on Mosul [an extraordinarily difficult undertaking regardless] given that Mosul is primarily a Sunni city, the Shia dominated attacking forces will not be deterred at all, as their vocabulary doesn't contain the term “collateral damage.” The point being that these poor souls will most assuredly perish as the attack proceeds.
Democrat Presidential Nominee Hillary Clinton Tops 2015-16 Islamist Money List
October 20, 2016 – Philadelphia, PA – PipeLineNews.org - The Middle East Forum’s “ Islamist Money in Politics ” (IMIP) project is releasing the top-ten recipients of 2015-16 campaign contributions from individuals who subscribe to the same Islamic supremacism as Khomeini, Bin Laden, and ISIS.
Hillary Clinton tops the list, raking in $41,165 from prominent Islamists. This includes $19,249 from senior officials of the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR), declared a terrorist organization by the United Arab Emirates on November 15, 2014.
Among other current presidential candidates, Jill Stein has accepted $250. Donald Trump and Gary Johnson have not received any Islamist money.
Other top recent recipients of money from the enemy include Rep. Keith Ellison ($17,370) and Rep. Andre Carson ($13,225). The top-ten list includes nine Democrats, one independent (Sen. Bernie Sanders accepted $9,285), and no Republicans.[Read More]
Democrat Kingpin Admits: RAT Party Has Been Stealing Elections For Half-A-Century
October 18, 2016 - San Francisco, CA - PipeLineNews.org – On the heels of James O’Keefe’s revelations yesterday regarding Hillary’s involvement in provoking violence at Trump rallies [see, Jackbooted Clinton Thugs Instigating Violence At Trump Events – Hillary Fully Aware] today his organization Project Veritas, released an even more damning and sensational video.
In it the investigative reporter produces footage proving what we have all known for a very long time, that the criminal enterprise aka the Democrat party has been stealing elections for well over 50 years and getting away with it.
Quoted on the O’Keefe video is Scott Foval, Deputy Political Director of People for the American Way, a charter member of the Democrat party's jackbooted Brown Shirts:
"You know what, we've been bussing people in, to deal with you fuckin' assholes for fifty years and we're not going to stop now."
Anyone who thinks that Hillary is not intimately aware of these operations is delusional.[Read More]
Jackbooted Clinton Thugs Instigating Violence At Trump Events – Hillary Fully Aware
October 17, 2016 - San Francisco, CA - PipeLineNews.org – James O’Keefe’s Project Veritas, has made a very unsettling disclosure. Today it released the first installment of a multi-part undercover investigation into allegations that the Clinton campaign is instigating violence towards Trump supporters and at his rallies in a clearly criminal plan to suppress the vote and steal the election – charges that this video clearly demonstrates are entirely correct.
Those shown on the video aren’t low level volunteers; these are some of the highest level Clinton operatives, salaried members of the official campaign staff.
Perhaps most shocking is that on multiple occasions throughout the 15 minute video, we see top Clintonistas saying that the candidate herself – Hillary Clinton – is not only aware of the illegal actions being undertaken but is approving these Soviet style tactics.[Read More]
Regensburg Revisited: Pope Benedict - Islam Incompatible With Western Society?
By WILLIAM MAYER
October 16, 2016 - San Francisco, CA - PipeLineNews.org – It’s hard to believe that it was fully 10 years ago [September 2006] when Pope Benedict XVI travelled to the University of Regensburg in Bavaria, Germany to deliver a speech that at the time shocked “intellectuals” around the world, most of whom failed to even attempt to understand the densely reasoned presentation.
During his address, Benedict, suggested unpleasant truths [though not his core thesis] implying in a complex manner that Islam has little in common with either Judaism or Christianity, does not worship the same god and has been spread primarily by the sword. Hence it follows that according to this line of thinking; Islam is incompatible with the precepts of Western Civilization, though that is an inference left to the reader.
In the late 14th century [perhaps the winter of 1391] something of a grand conversation took place between the, “Byzantine emperor Manuel II Paleologus and an educated Persian on the subject of Christianity and Islam.” [source, Apostolic Journey of His Holiness Benedict XVI to München, Altötting and Regensburg, September 9-14, 2006] Lecture on " Faith, Reason and the University, Memories and Reflections ,” the Vatican]
What proved to be an insanely divisive statement, was introduced via an ancient quote attributed to the aforementioned Manuel II:
"Show me just what Mohammed brought that was new, and there you will find things only evil and inhuman, such as his command to spread by the sword the faith he preached.” The emperor, after having expressed himself so forcefully, goes on to explain in detail the reasons why spreading the faith through violence is something unreasonable. Violence is incompatible with the nature of God and the nature of the soul. "God", he says, "is not pleased by blood - and not acting reasonably (σὺν λόγω) is contrary to God's nature. Faith is born of the soul, not the body. Whoever would lead someone to faith needs the ability to speak well and to reason properly, without violence and threats...To convince a reasonable soul, one does not need a strong arm, or weapons of any kind, or any other means of threatening a person with death..."
I fully remember at the time that the level of outrage [much of that which was coming from the West being the stuff of false indignation…high dudgeon in extremis] was stunning, especially to the Pope who seemed to be entirely blind-sided by the negative response.[Read More]
Corruption Inc: #Anonymous Demolishes Hillary Clinton
October 15, 2016 - San Francisco, CA - PipeLineNews.org – No need for much of a preface, this compilation was put together by the hacker collective, #Anonymous and deals with Hillary Clinton’s illegal behavior over a period spanning more than three decades.
Even for those who lived through Bill Clinton's two terms, this video contains information that you might have forgotten. For those too young at the time, or simply not born yet, this is the real Hillary Clinton.
Hillary has a 30 plus year history of felonious behavior that only the high offices occupied by her husband, first as Governor of Arkansas and next as President of the United State, could have protected her from certain prosecution and likely incarceration.
Throughout this long period of criminality the American media has been a willing co-conspirator, rising to her defense, shielding her from damaging information and actually working with her various teams to plant fraudulent news items favorable to her or damaging to her enemies.
We challenge you to watch this through till the end and not vote for Donald J. Trump.[Read More]
Obama Goes Psychotic - Considering Cyber War Against Russians on False Allegation
By WILLIAM MAYER
October 15, 2016 - San Francisco, CA - PipeLineNews.org – According to numerous sources, but primarily NBC News which apparently was fed the story, a completely delusional Obama is preparing to go to war with the Russians over false flag allegations of their meddling in the rapidly approaching US election.
“The Obama administration is contemplating an unprecedented cyber covert action against Russia in retaliation for alleged Russian interference in the American presidential election, U.S. intelligence officials told NBC News. Current and former officials with direct knowledge of the situation say the CIA has been asked to deliver options to the White House for a wide-ranging "clandestine" cyber operation designed to harass and "embarrass" the Kremlin leadership.” [source, William M. Arkin, Ken Dilanian and Robert Windrem, CIA Prepping for Possible Cyber Strike Against Russia , NBC News]
Generally administrations don’t announce via one of the big three nets “covert” operations in advance, but Team Obama doesn’t run with the standard protocols; no serious president would ever publicly tease something as serious as an act of war against a non-belligerent.
We doubt that the Russians have much to fear from this bluster, if such an op were really on the table, everyone would deny its existence even as it was occurring.
No, this is Obama playing a political gambit intended to influence the upcoming November election.[Read More]
Celebrating Historic Victories over Jihadist Islam: The Battle of Tours
By SHAWN STEEL, CA National Committeeman, RNC
October 12, 2016 - San Francisco, CA - PipeLineNews.org – The Battle of Tours [October 10, 732] was fought near Poitiers in north-central France [then called Gaul]. At the time, the Islamic forces [often referred to cryptically as “the Moors,” cloaking the nature of their mission] were on a tear, having stormed out Arabia, they conquered all of Northern Africa and - working up the Iberian Peninsula - the entirety of Spain in the hundred year period following the death of Mohammed, whose bequest remains a murderous legacy that continues to this day.
In the opinion of many, Tours was the most important military engagement - from a civilizational standpoint - to take place in Europe until the Siege of Vienna in 1683 [which finally ended the relentless Ottoman expansion] almost millennia later, as the Islamists had fought to subjugate the Continent for 1,300 years.
This battle pitted Frankish forces [15,000 +/-] under Charles Martel against the much larger [approximately 40,000] and very battle hardened army of the Umayyad Caliphate led by the notoriously barbaric, Abd-ar-Rahman - still widely respected and mourned by contemporary jihadists.
The explanation for Martel’s lop-sided victory lay in his keen understanding of tactics and applied weaponry. His men were also motivated by necessity, having witnessed the insane brutality of the Muslim forces - they knew what awaited the losing side in such confrontations.
Very briefly, Martel’s army consisted of infantry against which Allah’s “holy warriors” were using light cavalry to great effect. Noting the relative vulnerability of a horse-led fighting force in close quarter combat - little room or opportunity to maneuver - Martel changed tactics and supplied his troops with very long iron-tipped pikes, many of which were dug into the ground, tip facing forward.[Read More]
Celebrating Historic Victories over Jihadist Islam: The Battle of Lepanto
By SHAWN STEEL, CA National Committeeman, RNC
October 7, 2016 - San Francisco, CA - PipeLineNews.org – The Battle of Lepanto was one of history’s largest and most crucial naval battles because it represented the beginning of the end of the Islamic expansionist threat to Europe which had been an ugly fact of life since the late 7th century, led at the time by Umayyad Caliphate and subsequent to the conquest of Northern Africa.
The conflict took place nearly 450 years ago today - October 7, 1571 – and involved a fleet amassed by the Christian princes of Europe operating under a charter called the Christian Holy League [a broad coalition of Continental powers, including Italian city states] and led by the Holy See of Rome, Pope Pius V.
Despite being a numerically inferior force, the Christian navy - led by Spanish admiral Don Juan of Austria – effectively destroyed the entire Ottoman’s massive fleet. The engagement took place along the northern edge of the Gulf of Corinth, just off western Greece. The Islamic forces sailed westwards from their naval station at Lepanto whereupon it met the Holy Christian Coalition defending the Italian peninsula.
Since the victory of the Christian Holy League prevented the Ottoman Islamic Empire from expanding further along the European side of the Mediterranean – it is not over stating the case to say that this victory saved Western Civilization.
Lepanto was the last major naval battle in the Mediterranean fought entirely between galleys and has been assigned great symbolic and historical importance as one of the world’s most important naval battles.
At War with Islam - Why are We Afraid to Utter the Truth?
By VILLEM MAHERSTEIN
October 5, 2016 - San Francisco, CA - PipeLineNews.org – Recently, the Executive Director of the HAMAS tied Council on American Islamic Relations - Nihad Awad - was interviewed in an Arabic language publication, Al Sharqq Al Aswat.
The discussion centered on the just enacted American legislation entitled, the Justice Against Sponsors of Terrorism Act, which made it possible for the families of the victims of the 911 attacks - in which the Saudi government was heavily implicated - to sue the kingdom for damages, about which Awad stated:
“ …the legislation as an anti-Muslim attack…a continuation of the series of [actions] attaching terrorism to Islamic societies, the Islamic world and Islamic countries, as well as Islamic personalities, since it aims to demonize Islam…so that things have reached the point of attaching the accusation of terrorism against Saudi Arabia, which is the heart of the Muslim world, and accusing it is an accusation of Muslims all over the world." [source, CAIR's Awad: Anti-Terror JASTA Bill Part of "War on Islam" , Investigative Project on Terrorism]
As noted by the Investigative Project on Terrorism, Awad has been promoting the terrorist group HAMAS for over 20 years [see, CAIR Executive Director Placed at HAMAS Meeting, IPT News]:
“The executive director of the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR), Nihad Awad, participated in a three-day summit of U.S.-based HAMAS members and supporters in 1993...Previously available evidence shows Awad was at the 1993 HAMAS meeting. He can be seen on videotape the following summer, acknowledging "I am in support of the HAMAS movement" during a seminar at Miami's Barry University.”
Though Awad has no credibility when he feigned sorrow after the Paris attacks while claiming with a straight face that “ ISIS does not represent Muslims ,” he does speak with authority when he expresses the view that those who run the Muslim world and therefore those who define the ideology have unalterably adopted the view that the West is waging war against Allah, his messenger and Muslims.[Read More]
Obama and Hillary Clinton's Secret ‘Net Campaign to Destabilize Middle East, Topple U.S. Allies
By WILLIAM MAYER
October 3, 2016 - San Francisco, CA - PipeLineNews.org – Five years ago - on December 28, 2011 – the Telegraph UK published an odd piece, a single, secret high level U.S. government email. It detailed that two weeks after the election of Obama, the U.S. State Department, headed by Democrat presidential candidate Hillary Clinton became an active sponsor in a plot to overthrow the U.S.’ long time ally, Hosni Mubarak, president of Egypt and replace him with a member of the country’s terrorist Muslim Brotherhood.
If you are of the impression that Hillary’s boss wasn’t the one pulling the strings, you might as well stop reading now and get back to your bag of Cheetos and reruns of Dancing with the Stars.
That digression aside, the information contained in the Telegraph’s piece should have been the political equivalent of a train load of Semtex. Further attesting to the item’s peculiar nature was the fact that it was published on the 28th - a Friday, the day as all reporters know, stories of a controversial nature go to die; additionally, there was no supporting copy to provide any perspective, just the raw document dump…with no byline.

U.S. Intelligence Tipped Germans Off About ISIS Hit Team Disguised As Syrian Asylum Seekers
By EMERSON VERMAAT
October 3, 2016 – Amsterdam, NL – PipeLineNews.org - It was on Tuesday September 13, 2016, just two days after the commemoration of the fifteenth anniversary of the 9/11 attacks on the United States, that GSG 9, a special anti-terrorist unit of the German police, arrested three Syrian asylum seekers in refugee centers in Schleswig-Holstein and Lower-Saxony – near Hamburg, that is. The names of those who were arrested were revealed on September 13 in a press release from the German Federal Prosecutor (GBA). They were “17-year-old Syian national Mahir Al-H., 26-year-old Syrian national Mohamed A. and 18-year-old Syrian national Ibrahim M.” But whether these are their real names and their real identities remains uncertain.
They used fake Syrian pasports and they were by no means the only ones who did so. Ahmad Al-Mohammad and Mohammad Al-Mahmod, two of the three ISIS suicide bombers who struck just outside a football stadium in Paris in November last year, were also carrying fake Syrian passports and they, too, arrived in Europe disguised a refugees. It later turned out, however, that they were not Syrians but Iraqi jihadists whose noms de guerre were respectively “Ali Al-Iraqi” and “Ukasha Al-Iraqi.”
Mahir Al H., Mohamed A. and Ibrahim M. arrived in Germany on November 15, 2016, along with more than one million other asylum seekers from the Middle East, Iran, Pakistan, Afghanistan, North Africa, Kosovo, Albania and Bosnia.The German weekly Focus claims that the German authorities have been tipped off by “a friendly American Intelligence Service.” It would not have been the first time that the CIA tipped off the Germans about dangerous terror operatives on German soil. The members of the so-called “Sauerland Group” were arrested in September 2007... [Read More]
