Ball of Collusion – The PipeLineNews Review
“A Travesty of the First Order”

©2019 Andrew C. McCarthy
August 22, 2019 - San Francisco, CA – PipeLineNews.org – This has proven to be a difficult review to write, since Mr. McCarthy had stood for so long as something of a beacon of reason in DC’s notoriously fetid Swamp.
There is a considerable back-story here, so please allow for a momentary detour…
McCarthy’s street cred was well-earned in large part due to him being the former Federal Prosecutor who brought down Omar Abdel Rahman , aka the “Blind Sheikh” who died while serving a life sentence for his role in the 1993 World Trade Center bombing.
For the most part McCarthy was concerned with the problem of Islamic jihad and its mothership, the Muslim Brotherhood, writing several best-selling books about those and related topics.
He was also a writer for National Review, William F. Buckley’s neo-conservative magazine, now solely a web presence and it is here where the going gets rough.
Circling back to the 2016 presidential campaign and with Donald Trump as the GOP standard-bearer, National Review emerged as the self-identified [mostly in a fever dream] intellectual heartbeat of the Never Trump movement .
McCarthy was part of this failed effort, so much so that he has stated that he is considering voting DemocRAT in 2020. There were numerous other players, who remain active today, none of whom could fill a lecture held in a phone booth…[Read More]
Law Enforcement and MSM Push “White Nationalist Terrorism” Trope to Destoy U.S. Constitution
By W. AUGUST MAYER
August 12, 2019 - San Francisco - PipeLineNews.org - It has been said that to a man who only has a hammer everything looks like a nail; a corollary of sorts in the medical world is that surgeons tend to surgicate. This is undoubtedly true, once people have formed an opinion about an issue, or on a global scale a way of perceiving the world, they operate within that paradigm and “prescribe” solutions according to the tools they have available.
Consider a foreign policy determined solely by a fever-dream wing-nut spun out of the murky depths of BushLand - John Bolton; America would be in hot wars with half a dozen countries, some with nukes...the mind reels...San Francisco glowing in the dark.
It seems that the main lesson one can derive from the above is that it is dangerous to hastily be blindered into taking actions based upon defective perceptions and the resulting faulty analysis. This is especially true when “solutions” are driven by hysterical press coverage speaking with a single voice - an obvious sign that a common narrative has been arrived at using the model of Ezra Klein’s infamous journolist .
And so, to a remarkable degree, the recent gun violence in El Paso is being spun up into “national emergency” status, driven by the usual suspects - the Deep State’s propaganda arm, the hyper-politicized legacy media...and now, those who reside on the 7thfloor of DC’s FBI headquarters.[Read More]
We Ignore the Aggressive Doctrine of Islam at our Own Peril
BY AMIL IMANI
August 13, 2019 - San Francisco - PipeLineNews.org - There is no shortage of Islamic materials on the market for anyone curious enough to seek the truth for himself. I personally have written hundreds of articles about Islam and the threat it poses to our Constitution. The painstaking task of educating the American public about this threat has not stopped Islam's advance in America. I am puzzled as to why no one takes this threat seriously. Europe is already badly infected with Islamism. It is the canary in a coalmine. It is telling us Islam's next stop is America.
Many Americans have the common sense to see that Islam and Western values are incompatible. They would like to see Muslims assimilate and become part of this great nation. On the contrary, however, it has been the complete opposite. Not only do Muslims not assimilate; they are actively involved in imposing their ideology on non-Muslims in the hope that someday America will be conquered and fall under the rule of Islam. To Muslims, no other religion or man-made law is deemed worthy of recognition, much less accommodation.
When American officials opened the gate to the hordes of Muslims and permitted massive numbers of them to enter America, our culture and our way of life were forever altered. Just look at Minneapolis or Dearborn, Michigan. Minneapolis's Somali community has become the terrorist recruitment capital of the U.S. At the same time, elected U.S. officials do absolutely nothing to combat this threat to our society and culture.[Read More]
Mujahadeen-e-Khalq [MEK] Adopts Deceptive New Tactic
BY AMIL IMANI
August 8, 2019 - San Francisco - PipeLineNews.org - Recently, I came across a website by the name of Organization of Iranian American communities or (OIAC). Its mission statement says: “OIAC works to promote human rights and democratic freedoms for the people of Iran. This includes advocating for a democratic secular government in Iran, founded on respect for human rights, religious tolerance, and equality among all citizens.” Nothing could be further from the truth.
Well, it appears OIAC or better known as the MEK is following in the footsteps of the National Iranian American Council (NIAC), an influential IRI lobby in Washington, DC, one which has long sought rapprochement between Washington and Tehran and has infiltrated the US Congress promoting Iran’s Mullahs agenda while claiming “NIAC promotes an active and engaged Iranian-American community in the US and celebrates the community’s deep historical and cultural roots and traditions.” Pure garbage.
Hassan Dai , an Iranian activist and political analyst in an OP-ED slammed this despised and deceptive group that has used the White House (during the Obama administration) to advance The Islamic Republic’s agenda.
OIAC or MEK is an Islamist-Marxist cultish group headed by Maryam Rajavi, the wife of the deceased co-founder of MEK, Massoud Rajavi. During the 1970’s they rebelled against the Shah and were involved in bombing and shooting American and Iranian targets . The MEK or (OIAC) executed U.S. Army Lt. Col. Lewis Hawkins in 1973 as he was walking home from the U.S. Embassy and in 1975 killed two American Air Force officers in their chauffeur driven car, an incident that was studied and used in CIA training subsequently as an example of how not to get caught and killed by terrorists. Between 1976 and 1978, the group bombed American commercial targets and killed three Rockwell defense contractors and one Texaco executive[Read More]
Immigration Bust - 680 Illegals Arrested at Koch Owned Food Plant
August 8, 2019 - San Francisco - PipeLineNews.org - First the front story which in itself is breathtaking given the current political climate...
On August 7, U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement’s (ICE) Homeland Security Investigations (HSI) executed multiple federal criminal search warrants at seven agricultural processing plants across Mississippi Wednesday morning as part of an ongoing HSI worksite enforcement criminal investigation.
In addition to executing federal search warrants and seizing business records pertaining to the ongoing federal criminal investigation, deportation officers with ICE Enforcement and Removal Operations (ERO) in partnership with HSI detained approximately 680 removable aliens who were unlawfully working at the plants.
All the unlawfully present foreign nationals arrested Wednesday are being interviewed by ICE staff to record any potential mitigating humanitarian situations. Based on these interviews, and consideration of their criminality and prior immigration history, ICE is determining on a case-by-case basis based on the totality of the circumstances which individuals will be detained and which persons may be released from custody at present. In all cases, all the illegal aliens encountered as part of this operation are either being placed into removal proceedings before the federal immigration courts, and for those who already received due process and have been ordered removed, processed for removal from the U.S.
Now the backstory, which is HUGE...[Read More]
The Crusius Manifesto and the Left’s Embrace of Totalitarianism
August 8, 2019 - San Francisco - PipeLineNews.org - In February 1933, the Reichstag [which housed Weimar Germany’s legislature] was effectively burned to the ground. On the basis of him being close to the building at the time of the fire, a communist was identified, tried, found guilty and executed in short order - though his conviction was later overturned because of the suspicious nature of the prosecution and a general suspension of legal judgments arrived at during the Nazi years.
Many now believe that the convicted torch-man, if guilty at all, was aided by members of the Nazi party, one, because the fire became so immediately intense that it’s doubtful that a single person could have engineered it, and two, since the event served as a predicate for Chancellor Hitler to suspend civil liberties, a tactic not unfamiliar to the Democrat Party.
Understandably then, as the events of last weekend [8.3-8.4.19] unfolded, many of us who love America, cherish its values, culture and Constitution became queasy.
We knew instantly that two savage and very public acts of murder - one by a lunatic ANTIFA type and supporter of Elizabeth Warren, the second by cretin who justified his actions using a grab-bag of talking points used by the right as well as the left - would fire up the gun-grabbers.[Read More]
Confessions of a White Nationalist, Part II
By W. AUGUST MAYER
August 6, 2019 - San Francisco - PipeLineNews.org - After the horrors of last weekend [8.3-8.4.19] it was inevitable that state media would adopt the most extreme, and farcical, narrative imaginable.
If one is to believe Fox News, the Wall Street Journal and other leftist sources of commentary, the answer to these occasional, but tragic episodes of homicidal madness lies in implementing clearly unconstitutional schemes that would result in the revocation of the 2ndAmendment, via a legislative agenda crafted to make it impossible for Americans to defend home and hearth from the types of perps that social media, the legacy press and various wags have now made famous.
Perhaps the main reason why such extra-legal measures are again being championed is the most obvious - making sure that no one will be able to fend off predation by a government/Deep State complex gone rogue. This is why, after these types of incidents inflammatory catchwords such as “high capacity magazine,” “weapons of war or of a military nature,” “assault weapons” always come to the fore.
For the most part - and this is 100% true when it comes to the majority party in Congress, and unfortunately too many on the minority side - the elites of our culture, its high priests as it were, have no real concern about mass violence.
The goal of these people [consider the detestable Bush toadie Karl Rove who bleats on Fox News about the dangers of “white nationalism”] is to disarm an entire population so that there can be no meaningful resistance to the totalitarianism of the administrative state.
Since “our side” is cowering in a corner pissing on themselves, it’s up to those who comprise the Trump Patriots to respond wherever possible.
In response to a particularly odious piece that appeared in the 8.5.19 Wall Street Journal , I contacted a couple of the writers, though as we go to press there have been no responses.[Read More]
A Few Words About "Assault Weapons"
By W. AUGUST MAYER
August 5, 2019 - San Francisco, CA - PipeLineNews.org - What follows is a reprint of a piece that we posted on January 17, 2013 voicing our thoughts about a proposal made by then President Obama regarding administrative changes that he stated would address gun violence. As these things usually go, his initiative was rolled out during a surreal dog-and-pony show using school children as human shields. This, in a cowardly attempt to hide his true agenda - registration then confiscation of all firearms.
Administratively, in what we believe is clearly an unconstitutional end-run around the Second Amendment, Team Obama has issued a set of new "guidelines" and/or Executive Orders which direct various federal agencies to carry out specific steps to address the alleged problem - easy access to defensive weaponry by American citizens.
First observation - It's impossible to ignore the President and Vice President BiteMe's shameless use of innocent kids as pawns in a high-stakes game of chess, a tactic which is identical to that employed by the Third Reich.
Since the November election the neo-Marxist/neo-Fascists, led by Mr. Obama, have moved with great haste to implement key elements in what might be called the left's implicit agenda.
All political ideologies/philosophies are at their core an attempt to define the world in terms [he who controls the language, controls the narrative/agenda] which lend themselves to the solutions provided by said ideologies.
So on the left their defining of capitalism as an unfair method of distributing goods and services results in a desire to pass legislation which will result in more stringent regulation/control of business and consequently, higher taxes on successful capitalists and their various enterprises.
The above is widely understood - lefties do not like business.
Also ranking high on their hate list is firearms - "guns" in their rather limited lexicon on the topic.
These folks either don't understand the Second Amendment or as is overwhelmingly the case, fully understand the implications of "the right to keep and bear arms," ignore it, perhaps alleging that it's no longer acceptable in "modern, civilized" America, and proceed down the path towards jack-booted confiscation.[Read More]
Confessions of a White Nationalist
By W. AUGUST MAYER
August 4, 2019 - San Francisco - PipeLineNews.org - I had the misfortune to hear a few minutes of Chris Wallace’s Fox Sunday show [8.4.19] during which he - surprise - presided over a typically uncritically inane panel regarding the recent shootings.
One of the participants was Guy Benson, someone I have never heard of though from what I understand he is a “Fox News contributor,” whatever that means. At one point in the discussion Benson said something like “we have to be clear and declare this [the shootings] to be the work of White Nationalists,” whoever they are.
But in thinking about it I became very uncomfortable with the apparent ease with which Benson [who represents himself as being a conservative, again whatever that means these days since little Billy Kristol and brain gone rotten Jonah Goldberg claim the identical appellation] launched into the same bizarre rant those on the Marxist left do, subdividing Americans into class-based siloed groups so that the blame for anything may be used to further turn citizens against each other in service of “the movement,” that comes complete with the punctuation of a jack-boot.
Benson’s analysis mirrored the recent Congressional testimony of the FBI’s Christopher Wray [a Deep State slug] during which he made the declaration that the United States’ biggest terror threat is from “White Nationalists.”
Now I have no idea in which direction Benson will subsequently take his talking points, but it is clear that with such manner of “conservatism,” we really don’t need ANTIFA, the Brookings Institute, the Washington Post [whose natty writer Charles Lane appeared on the same panel] or the NY Times trying to drag us into a Venezuela-like hell-hole, since “our” side is more than happy to do it for them upon the belief that this will absolve them of being called nasty names - a fool’s bargain.[Read More]
Treasury Department Imposes Sanctions on Iran’s Foreign Minister Mohammed Javad Zarif
August 1, 2019 – Washington, DC - PipeLineNews.org - The U.S Treasury Department’s Office of Foreign Assets Control (OFAC) today took action against the Iranian regime’s Foreign Minister, Mohammad Javad Zarif (Javad Zarif), pursuant to Executive Order (E.O.) 13876 because Zarif acted or purported to act for or on behalf of, directly or indirectly, the Supreme Leader of the Islamic Republic of Iran.
On June 24, 2019, the President issued E.O. 13876 imposing sanctions on the Supreme Leader of the Islamic Republic of Iran and the Supreme Leader’s Office (SLO), and authorizing sanctions on others associated with the Supreme Leader or the SLO. Concurrently, Treasury added the Supreme Leader of Iran, Ali Husseini Khamenei, to OFAC’s List of Specially Designated Nationals and Blocked Persons (SDN List) under this new authority.
“Javad Zarif implements the reckless agenda of Iran’s Supreme Leader, and is the regime’s primary spokesperson around the world. The United States is sending a clear message to the Iranian regime that its recent behavior is completely unacceptable,” said Treasury Secretary Steven T. Mnuchin. “At the same time the Iranian regime denies Iranian citizens’ access to social media, Foreign Minister Javad Zarif spreads the regime’s propaganda and disinformation around the world through these mediums.”
As we noted on July 19, Secretary of State Pompeo recently spoke out strongly against the private diplomacy being conducted by John Kerry with Iranian officials that includes Zarif. It is known that Kerry and possibly other former Obama officials have been advising the Iranian regime - the world’s largest funder of Islamic terror.
“Three Obama officials who worked closely on the Iran nuclear deal, one of whom is still in touch with Iranian government officials, traveled to Capitol Hill to brief congressional Democrats about the situation. Those former officials said would not say if they passed information from Iranian government officials to members of Congress. Rather, they said they focused on educating members about their experience working with Iranian leaders and how Tehran reacts to economic pressure.”
Additionalluy, while OFAC is taking today’s action against Zarif under E.O. 13876, this new authority, additional information indicates that Javad Zarif oversees a foreign ministry that has coordinated with one of the Iranian regime’s most nefarious state entities, the IRGC-Qods Force (IRGC-QF)...[Read More]
Somali Muslim “Refugees” Busted on Terror Charge - Material Aid to ISIS
August 1, 2019 - San Francisco, CA - PipeLineNews.org – Surprise, surprise...John Demers, Assistant Attorney General for National Security, Michael Bailey, the United States Attorney for the District of Arizona, Michael McGarrity, Assistant Director of the FBI's Counterterrorism Division, and Sean Kaul, Special Agent in Charge of the FBI Phoenix Field Office, announced that on July 26, Ahmed Mahad Mohamed and Abdi Yemani Hussein, were arrested for conspiring to provide material support and resources to ISIS, a designated foreign terrorist organization.
The defendants stand accused of being in contact with an FBI undercover employee whom they believed was a supporter of ISIS ideology. These communications revealed the defendants’ desire to travel overseas in order to fight on behalf of ISIS or to conduct an attack within the United States if they were unable to travel. Ultimately, the defendants purchased airline tickets to travel to Egypt, with the intention to travel on to Sinai and join ISIS. FBI agents arrested Mohamed and Hussein after they checked in for their flight at the Tucson International Airport in Arizona.
Apparently, both defendants came to the United States as refugees from Somalia. At the time of their arrest, Mohamed had obtained lawful permanent resident status and Hussein remained a refugee.[Read More]
