Trump takes 5.6 lead over Hillary in USC Dornsife LA Times Presidential Poll through Sept. 29, 2016

Trump 47.3
Hillary 41.7

9/30/16, USC Dornsife LA Times Presidential Daybreak Poll

"About the Survey✝

The USC Dornsife/LA Times Presidential Election "Daybreak" Poll is part of the ongoing Understanding America Study: (UAS) at the University of Southern California’s (USC) Dornsife Center for Economic and Social Research, in partnership with the Jesse M. Unruh Institute of Politics and the Los Angeles Times. Every day, we invite one-seventh of the members of the UAS election panel to answer three predictive questions: What is the percent chance that… (1) you will vote in the presidential election? (2) you will vote for Clinton, Trump, or someone else? and (3) Clinton, Trump or someone else will win? As their answers come in, we update the charts daily (just after midnight) with an average of all of the prior week’s responses. To find out more about what lies behind the vote, each week we also ask respondents one or two extra questions about their preferences and values. The team responsible for the USC Dornsife/LA Times Presidential Election Poll four years ago developed the successful RAND Continuous Presidential Election Poll, which was based on the same methodology."


Until June 2016, Mrs. Clinton had only been heard showering praise on her 'humanitarian' Saudi Arabian friends. In her Dec. 2009 internal memo released by Wikileaks, we learned Mrs. Clinton has known for at least six and a half years that Saudis were major sponsors of global terror-Consortium News, Lazare (Why didn't Mrs. Clinton in 2009 demand the US end all weapons sales to the Saudis? Why in 2016 is the truth about the Saudis mentioned in passing without a statement that US will immediately suspend all arms sales to Saudi Arabia?)

June 2016 article

6/24/16, "The ‘Safe’ Risk of Hillary Clinton," Consortium News, Daniel Lazare

"The U.K.’s “Brexit” vote underscores the power of this year’s anti-establishment politics, a warning to Democrats as they nominate status-quo candidate Hillary Clinton, a “safe” choice who may prove very risky, says Daniel Lazare."

"She (Hillary) is a hawk through and through. Her rhetoric was every bit as ferocious as George W. Bush’s in the days after 9/11, if not more so.
She voted for the Authorization to Use Military Force, which gave the go-ahead for the invasion of Afghanistan, and also for the 2003 invasion of Iraq. She persuaded President Obama to pursue “regime change” in Libya and spent much of March 2011 recruiting ultra-rich Qatar to join in the effort. But she said nothing when Qatar then poured $400 million into the hands of Islamist rebels who proceeded to spread chaos throughout the country. [See’s “Hillary Clinton’s ‘Entangled’ Foreign Policy.”]

Clinton has been no less reckless with regard to Syria. She beat Obama to the punch in calling for Bashar al-Assad’s overthrow, she’s consistently pushed for stepped-up support for the rebels, and, as recently as April, she reiterated her call for a “no-fly zone” even though it would require massive military intervention and would almost certainly mean a confrontation with Russia....

Since U.S. foreign policy directly affects 20 times more people than domestic – i.e. seven billion versus 322 million – then there’s no doubt as to whom the “lesser-evilism” award goes to. It goes to Trump....

Rather than polls, what matters at this point are politics, i.e. a sense of the candidates’ relative ideological strengths and weaknesses. And it’s in this regard that Clinton is more vulnerable than her backers apparently realize.

Her speech in Cleveland following the June 12 Orlando massacre is a good example why. She began – inappropriately in view of the tragic circumstances – with the usual glib shout-outs to local pols....But then came something truly bizarre: 

(Hillary): Now, the third area that demands attention is preventing radicalization and countering efforts by ISIS and other international terrorist networks to recruit in the United States and Europe. For starters, it is long past time for the Saudis, the Qataris and the Kuwaitis and others to stop their citizens from funding extremist organizations. And they should stop supporting radical schools and mosques around the world that have set too many young people on a path towards extremism.” 

Why bizarre? Simply because Clinton has been a national figure for two decades as First Lady, U.S. Senator, and Secretary of State, yet this was a rare recognition that there was something wrong with the U.S.-Saudi relationship. Otherwise, there has been almost nothing but praise. When the State Department negotiated a record $60-billion arms deal with Riyadh in 2010, for instance, her officials stated (somewhat redundantly) that the sale would benefit the Middle East “by deepening our security relationship with a key partner with whom we’ve enjoyed a solid security relationship for nearly seventy years.”
How do you have a solid security relationship with a country that funds extremist mosques that function as a terrorist breeding ground?

When King Abdullah died in January 2015, she and her husband put out a statement praising the Saudi monarch “for his support of efforts for peace in the Middle East” and “the kingdom’s humanitarian efforts around the world.” Since when do you advance the cause of peace by funding Al Qaeda?"... 

[Ed. note: The article's point is that Mrs. Clinton has been shielding a terror sponsor, the Saudis, lying to the American people about what a great friend of the US they are for at least six and a half years. And why should she be rewarded with 8 more years in the White House for this behavior? Her duplicity is formally known thanks only to a Dec. 2009 internal State Dept. memo released by Wikileaks (scroll to item 7). Separately, why is the US "friends" with a religious monarchy that publicly beheads people? Why is ISIS bad for beheading people but the Saudis aren't?]:

(continuing): "To be fair,  (Mrs.) Clinton was surprisingly frank--once. In December 2009, she wrote in a State Department memo [scroll to item 7]:

“While the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia (KSA) takes seriously the threat of terrorism within Saudi Arabia, it has been an ongoing challenge to persuade Saudi officials to treat terrorist financing emanating from Saudi Arabia as a strategic priority. Due in part to intense focus by the USG over the last several years, Saudi Arabia has begun to make important progress on this front and has responded to terrorist financing concerns raised by the United States through proactively investigating and detaining financial facilitators of concern. Still, donors in Saudi Arabia constitute the most significant source of funding to Sunni terrorist groups worldwide.

The language was tough and unsparing. But the memo is the exception that proves the rule since it was a secret in-house communication that only saw the light of day when Wikileaks put it on the Internet – a disclosure, by the way, that Clinton assailed as “an attack on the international community, the alliances and partnerships, the conversations and negotiations that safeguard global security and advance economic prosperity.” (Full quote here starting at 1:34.)

If it’s long past time now for the Saudis to cease funding extremist organizations, why wasn’t it long past time then? 

Why has Clinton repeatedly assured the American people that everything is fine when, as she now concedes, America’s “friends” are funding extremist forces that are trying to kill Americans in the streets?

Trump can be counted on to hammer at such themes, and the more he does, the more voters will want to know. Indeed, Trump followed up her remarks in Cleveland by posting a few hours later on Facebook: “Crooked Hillary says we must call on Saudi Arabia and other countries to stop funding hate. I am calling on her to immediately return the $25 million plus she got from them for the Clinton Foundation!”

Actually, the problem is worse since, if one includes other Gulf states such as Qatar and the United Arab Emirates as well as high-ranking businessmen, the amount of Persian Gulf money flowing to the Clinton family foundation is not $25 million, but anywhere from $51 million to $75 million. That’s a lot of dough.  So voters will want to know whether Clinton intentionally held off criticizing the Gulf monarchies because she wanted them to fork over as soon as she stepped down as Secretary of State and that she is only doing so now because the money is in the bag and there is nothing to lose.

Trump plays the politics of fear, as everyone knows. But he also thrives by citing examples of corruption, hypocrisy and incompetence, and Clinton exemplifies all three. Since she entered the Senate, Al Qaeda has grown from a tiny band of conspirators to a major military force wreaking havoc from Indonesia to California. Yet now she expects voters to show their thanks by propelling her into the White House."...

Turkish immigrant who murdered 5 people in Washington State has been allowed to vote illegally since 2014, participated in 3 election cycles including May 2016 presidential primary. Washington State voting is 'honor system,' doesn't require proof of citizenship, state law doesn't 'allow' citizenship to be verified-King TV, 9/26/16

9/25/16, Turkish man killed five people at Macy's Dept. Store in Washington State. (Not Hispanic after all) 
9/26/16, "Investigators may probe Cascade Mall suspect's citizenship status, voting record,", Natalie Brand, Seattle, Washington

"The Cascade Mall shooting suspect, Arcan Cetin, may face an additional investigation related to his voting record and citizenship status.

Federal sources confirm to KING 5 that Cetin was not a U.S. citizen, meaning legally he cannot vote. However, state records show Cetin registered to vote in 2014 and participated in three election cycles, including the May presidential primary. 

Cetin, who immigrated to the United States from Turkey as a child, is considered a permanent resident or green card holder. While a permanent resident can apply for U.S. citizenship after a certain period of time, sources tell KING his status had not changed from green card holder to U.S. citizen.

While voters must attest to citizenship upon registering online or registering to vote at the Department of Licensing Office, Washington state doesn't require proof of citizenship. Therefore elections officials say the state's elections system operates, more or less, under an honor system.

"We don’t have a provision in state law that allows us either county elections officials or the Secretary of State's office to verify someone’s citizenship," explained Secretary of State Kim Wyman. "So, we’re in this place where we want to make sure we’re maintaining people’s confidence in the elections and the integrity of the process, but also that we’re giving this individual, like we would any voter, his due process. We’re moving forward, and that investigation is really coming out of the investigation from the shootings."

The penalty for voting as a non U.S. citizen could result in five years of prison time or a $10,000, according to Secretary of State's Office. 

"The penalties are very serious. That’s why we want to make sure we’re very measured, and this is why we want to make sure we’re very calm and purposeful in how we move forward," Wyman continued. "The stakes are very high on both sides. You want to keep the confidence level high, but you also want to protect the voting rights of everyone."

Wyman says while it's impossible to determine an exact number, she does not believe this case points to a larger issue.  

"Our hands are kind of tied, but make no mistake, we want to make sure that everybody has confidence that people casting ballots are eligible. This is certainly going to be a topic at next legislation.""

9/25/16, "Washington state mall shooting: FBI 'not ruling out terrorism' as Turkish man arrested over five killed in Macy's," UK Telegraph, David Millward, Harriet Alexander

Arcan Cetin, epa photo
"A 20-year-old Turkish man is expected to appear in court on Monday on charges of killing five people at a Macy’s department store in Washington state, as the FBI said they were not ruling out an act of terrorism.
Arcan Cetin from Oak Harbor, Washington, offered no resistance when he was arrested on Saturday night, saying nothing...police said.

On Friday night he had entered a branch of Macy’s at the Cascade Mall in Burlington, just over 65 miles north of Seattle, and opened fire at the make-up counter. He killed four women, aged 16 to 95, instantly. A fifth victim, a man who was airlifted away from the scene, died later.

Cetin had a violent past, had been arrested for drunk driving and was recommended by a judge not to be allowed to own a firearm. Skagit County court records show three domestic-violence assault charges against Cetin, with the victim identified as his stepfather.

Cetin was told by an Island County district court judge on December 29 that he was not to possess a firearm, but the stepfather urged the judge not to impose a no-contact order, which would require him to surrender his gun -saying his stepson was "going through a hard time".

Cetin’s social media postings gave little hint of extremist tendencies, with his Twitter feed musing over Miley Cyrus, Turkish food, and the computer game Halo....

The previous month he had tweeted: “We win I vote for Hillary Clinton” – his only political reference....

Marty Baldwin told The Seattle Times he allowed the suspected gunman, who was homeless at the time, to move in with him and his wife.

But Mr Baldwin kicked him out a few months later after learning the younger man was using and selling drugs, he said.

Mr Baldwin said he called 911 on Friday night, after recognising the man he knew as “Frankie” on TV.

Police on Saturday were unable to confirm reports he had yelled a woman’s name before opening fire.

It was unclear whether he knew his victims - Sarai Lara, 16, a cancer survivor and high school sophomore; Belinda Galde, 64, and her mother, 95-year-old Beatrice Dotson, and Shyla Martin, a 52-year-old Macy's makeup counter employee.

Chuck Eagan, a Boeing maintenance worker, was also killed - shot while helping his wife flee the store.

Following the shooting Cetin was seen walking to a nearby interstate."...


9/25/16, "Mall shooting suspect was 'zombie-like' when arrested, officials say," Fox News

""Mount Vernon Police Lt. Chris Cammock said Cetin had immigrated to the U.S. from Turkey and was a "legal permanent resident." It was not immediately clear when Cetin came to the U.S.

Hawley said Cetin had been arrested for simple assault last year, but provided no further details on the case. The Seattle Times reported that Cetin faced three domestic violence assault charges in both Burlington and Island County, with the victim identified as Cetin's stepfather. The newspaper reports Cetin also was arrested for drunken driving.

Court records show Cetin was told by a judge on Dec. 29 that he was not to possess a firearm, the newspaper reported. 

However, the stepfather urged the judge not to impose a no-contact order, saying his stepson was "going through a hard time."

The $35-$70 million the Saudis gave the Clinton Foundation may explain Hillary's claim a few months ago that she knew nothing about a pending bill in Congress to permit 911 families to sue the Saudi Arabian government-Morris, April 2016

Clinton Foundation usually provides "ranges" of donations, such as $1-$5 million, not the exact amount.

4/19/16, "The $70 Million Reasons Why Hillary Is Playing Dumb And Mum On Saudis And 9/11," by Dick Morris and Eileen McGann

March 30, 2012, State Dept. photo


"All eyes are suddenly on Saudi Arabia’s role in financing the 9/11 hijackers. All except Hillary Clinton’s, that is. She’s playing dumb and mum, hoping to ride out the controversy with passive platitudes that won’t offend her Saudi benefactors. After all, it’s not that easy to collect $35-$70 million, even if you are an ex-president and a secretary of state.

But the Clintons were able to close the deal — while Hillary was a Senator and right around the time of 9/11. That’s when the Saudi’s were frantically trying to change their image. The Clintons were only too happy to help.

Now Hillary is playing dumb about the Saudis role in 9/11. As Congress considers a bill to permit the victims of 9/11 to sue the Saudi Arabian government for bankrolling the nineteen 9/11 hijackers, Hillary claimed that she didn’t know anything about the bill, saying: “I don’t really know about that, George. I’ll have to look into it. Seriously, Hillary? [4/17/16]

Even her fawning lapdog, George Stephanopoulos could not let that lie go by. When he challenged her, she went into a tirade to deflect the discussion:

Unlike some people, I actually do try to learn what’s at the core of any question before I offer an opinion, ’cause you know, it’s not enough to say what’s wrong. I think you’ve got a responsibility to say how you’re going to fix it.” (I think we’re talking about Bernie here.) 

So, the former Senator from N.Y, who mentions 9/11 just about every time she opens her mouth, doesn’t know anything about the bill that is probably the most important one to the 9/11 victims

(Remember her shameless claim that Wall Street so generously rewarded her because of her help in rebuilding NY after 9/11. Right, Hillary.)

About an hour after her faux pas — after her handlers were undoubtedly horrified at her response, her campaign suddenly announced that she supported the bill. She must have found some time to carefully review the bill in between her $15 million fund raiser at George Clooney’s home and her appearance at a rally for the $15 minimum wage, which, depending on the day and the audience, she sometimes supports.

Undoubtedly, Hillary learned that Obama planned to veto the bill , so at that point, she had nothing to lose and suddenly supported the bill. That’s how she operates — when opportunity knocks, she opens the door....

Another bill that’s equally important to the 9/11 victims is one that would declassify 28 pages of the 9/11 Report that remain locked in an underground vault."...  

[Ed. note: In July 2016, a few months after this article was written, the "28 pages" were finally "released"--with key portions redacted. Meaning the secrets are still secret.] 

(continuing): "That’s another thing Hillary isn’t talking about. When asked if she had read the secret pages, she twice responded “I’m not commenting on that.”

Now, why would she stay mum on whether she’s seen the report? Well, from Hillary Clinton’s perspective, an answer might be a lose-lose situation. If she did read them, then she knows what’s in those pages. If the pages do implicate the Saudis and she pushes for release, her Saudi friends would be very unhappy. If they don’t implicate the Saudis, then why doesn’t she just say so? She doesn’t have to quote what’s in them.

But maybe she never read them.

Hillary was the Senator from N.Y. in 2004, when the report was released and should have read the 28 pages. Just like she should have read the report on Iraq and WMDs before she voted to go to war. She didn’t do that. So it turns out that she is not always as careful to understand what she is voting on or supporting, after all.

Or did she skip those pages likes she skipped the Iraq War information?...

Meanwhile, the Saudis have been dumping millions on lobbying firms to protect their interest, including hiring the Podesta Group, founded by Hillary’s campaign chair, John Podesta and run by his brother, Tony Podesta. All in the family.

Here’s a list of Saudi donations to the Clinton Foundation and speaking fees to Bill Clinton from the Saudi government and business interests close to the King [Clinton Foundation usually only gives "ranges," such as $1-$5 million, not the exact amount]:

Saudi Donations To The Clinton Foundation Amount
Saudi Arabia $25 Million*
Friends of Saudi Arabia $1-5 Million**
The Zayed Family $1-5 Million
Sheikh Mohammed H. Al-Amoudi $1-5 Million
Walid Juffali $1-5 Million
State of Qatar $1-5 Million
Nasser Al-Rashid $1-5 Million
Hamza B. Al Khol $100,000-$250,000
MIDROC (Sheikh Mohammed H. Al-Amoudi’s company) $20 Million
Speaking Fees To Bill Clinton Amount
Tanmiah Commercial Group, Saudi Arabia $300,000 (1/25/11)
The Dabbagh Group, Saudi Arabia $300,000 (1/20/02)
* Published reports confirm $25 million, which was the largest single gift for a long time.
** The Clinton Foundation only gives ranges of donations, not the exact amount.

Now, it makes sense why Hillary suddenly has nothing to say about 9/11 and the Saudis there’s millions of reasons."...

50 Bush administration alums endorse Trump for President, 9/27/16

Full list, Bush Alumni for Trump

9/27/16, "50 Former Bush Administration Alums – Including Donald Rumsfeld – Endorse Trump," Daily Caller, Alex Pappas

"More than 50 alumni of the George H.W. Bush and George W. Bush GOP presidential administrations — including former Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld and White House press secretary Ari Fleischer — have formed a coalition to express support for Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump.

It comes amid reports that George H.W. Bush might be voting for Democrat Hillary Clinton in the general election. Neither George W. Bush nor his brother, Trump primary rival Jeb Bush, have endorsed Trump in the race. Some former Bush administration officials, like former Secretary of Commerce Carlos Gutierrez, are backing Clinton.

Others who have joined the coalition include former U.S. Attorney General John Ashcroft, former Labor Secretary Elaine Chao, former Treasury Secretary John Snow, former director of the Office of National Drug Control Policy Bill Bennett, former White House political director Matt Schlapp and former Veterans Affairs Secretary Anthony Principi.

Here is the full list of those who joined the coalition.

The group is asking other former Bush officials to join them by filling out a form on a website. That petition cites the “need for bold leadership, a strong national defense, sound economic policy and a Supreme Court committed to preserve the freedoms framed in the Constitution.”

Americans want to trust our leaders again, to know that they are fighting for everyday Americans by creating jobs, growing our economy, defending our nation from terrorism, and respecting the voters enough to be straightforward and honest with them,” said said former Health And Human Services Secretary Tommy Thompson. “Donald Trump and Mike Pence will put America first, and make our country great again.”"

Communist China hackers take whatever they want from the US, have better apparatus than KGB had, no effort in Washington DC to stop them. Obama admin. 'particularly weak' in dealing with Chinese. “If you are a major law firm and you’re working on a trade case with China, they’ll strip your computers,” said Rep. Frank Wolf in 2014. NOAA was hacked by China in 2014, didn't report it until a month later-CNS News

3/2/2012, NASA says it was hacked 13 times last year (2011),” Reuters. NASA chief Bolden says he's "going to sign a directive" ordering NASA portable devices to use encryption. As of November 2012, still no encryption. "Bolden also said that most attacks are "by kids who are just trying to impress people.""
11/14/2014, "Rep. Wolf: Chinese Hackers ‘Literally Taking Whatever They Want’," CNS News, Barbara Hollingsworth

"Washington is not doing nearly enough to stop Chinese hackers, who reportedly broke into the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration’s (NOAA) computer system in September, from stealing critical information from U.S. government agencies and American businesses, says Rep. Frank Wolf (R-VA).

They have a more sophisticated spying apparatus than the KGB had, Wolf told

We’re losing jobs, technology, everything is leaving. It’s like they’re coming in and literally taking whatever they want to take

And so sometimes you find out about it and sometimes you don’t, but there needs to be a coordinated effort [to stop them],” Wolf continued. “And you don’t see a coordinated effort either from the Congress or from the administration.”

Wolf told that he believes special Chinese military units are responsible for roughly 80 percent of the cyber-attacks on American businesses, foundations and government agencies.

If you are a major law firm and you’re working on a trade case with China, they’ll strip your computers, said the Virginia Republican, who is retiring this year after serving in the House since 1980.
“We fund the FBI on my committee. I’ve looked at the list. They’re hitting major law firms. They’re hitting all the companies,” said Wolf, who chairs the House Commerce-Justice-Science Subcommittee and whose own computer was previously hacked by the Chinese. 

“The fact is, the saying was there’s two kind of companies: Those that have been hacked and know it and those who have been hit and don’t know it. This isn’t the first time. They just got [data on] 800,000 postal employees.”

“I consider them a big threat. They have tremendous capability. They have [Red Army] units that do nothing but this,” Wolf told But there have been “no repercussions” from Washington, he pointed out.

“Until the administration speaks out and tells China to stop, and there is a penalty, it will continue.”

Wolf characterized the Obama administration as “particularly weak” in dealing with the Chinese. On Wednesday in Beijing, President Obama announced specific targets to cut U.S. greenhouse gas emissions up to 28 percent by 2025, while Chinese President Xi Jinping would only commit to an effort to start reducing emissions by 2030, a deal hailed as a “breakthrough” by Secretary of State John Kerry.

Wolf noted that NOAA did not report the cyber-attack to the Commerce Department’s inspector general, as required by law, until nearly a month later.

“They didn’t tell anybody. I think they were hoping that people would not know it and they could cover it up. And they were saying that the computers were down for a couple of days for maintenance, [so] they were not telling the truth there.”

“Maybe this [NOAA] thing didn’t come out because they didn’t want to upset the Chinese because they wanted to go to Beijing and have that deal. I don’t know that’s the case, but maybe it is the case,” Wolf speculated, adding that the Obama administration also has “one of the weakest records on human rights and religious freedom.”

“I don’t think the secretary [of Commerce] knew, and if they’re not going to tell the secretary, they’re not going to tell Congress,” Wolf said in reply to a question from on whether Congress had been notified of the security breach.

However, he pointed out that the cyber-attack on NOAA may have affected national security because the weather agency shares a satellite with the Pentagon and NASA.

“What may not appear important initially may be very significant as you add it in with something else. If they were looking at what NOAA’s doing, at rocket launches, at military maneuvers, who knows? What if they are able to shut down the grid? What if they are able to shut down the banking system?” he asked.

Wolf also pointed to the Oct. 20 indictment of Xiafen “Sherry” Chen, a Chinese-born naturalized U.S. citizen and NOAA hydrologist in Ohio who was accused of downloading “sensitive files from the National Inventory of Dams.”

Wolf was quick to point out that the Chinese people are also victimized by their government.

“Probably more Chinese dissidents come through this office than any office on the Hill. The Chinese people are wonderful people, Christianity is growing dramatically, the Catholic Church is growing, so I don’t want to criticize the Chinese people,” he added.

“They have problems with their own government. Look at the crackdown taking place now in Hong Kong.”

“But part of the [Chinese] government is a Mafia operation. So do I believe what they say when they meet with the president? Do I trust the Chinese (government)? No, I don’t trust the Chinese, Wolf said."


Depraved US political class are accessories to murder by insisting on open US southern border. Mexican man wanted for 2 murders was deported 3 times. "I've been doing this kind of work for 30 years and know we have a very porous border. That's quite obvious. Coming in and out of the country is relatively easy. I hate to say this is not unusual" said Spvr. Dep. U.S. Marshal Hector Gomez-Fox4 News, Dallas

Luviano, fox4 news
9/28/16, "Suspect in deadly crime spree deported at least three times,", Dallas Fort Worth

"The man wanted for two murders in North Texas was transferred back to the Dallas County Jail after he was arrested near Austin.

Only FOX 4 was there when Silvestre Franco-Luviano was escorted into the Dallas County Jail Wednesday afternoon. When asked about the alleged murders, he refused to answer any questions and looked away.

Law enforcement officials said the 40-year-old Mexican national has a history of prior arrests and has been deported three times in the past. Immigration officials say Luvaino was first deported in 1996 after a criminal conviction. He was caught trying to reenter in 2009 and deported a second time. Then in 2011, he was arrested again in Austin, sentenced to eight months in prison and deported a third time in 2014.

"I've been doing this kind of work for 30 years and know we have a very porous border. That's quite obvious," said Supervisory Deputy U.S. Marshal Hector Gomez with the Lone Star Fugitive Task Force.  

"Coming in and out of the country is relatively easy. I hate to say this is not unusual."

Luviano was arrested Tuesday night in Georgetown, north of Austin. He was wanted for a shooting spree early Monday that targeted at least five random drivers in Dallas and Cedar Hill. Two men – Ruben Moreno and Welton Betts – were killed.

After the shootings, police said Luviano broke into a home, stole a car and fled to Georgetown. He allegedly kidnapped a man in Georgetown but let him go after stealing his vehicle.

A tip led police to Luviano at a relative’s apartment. Police said he broke through a wall into an adjoining apartment and set a small fire as a diversion to try to get away, but officers were still able to tackle him at the bottom of the stairs.

When Luviano was arrested, police recovered a .45 caliber handgun and ammunition. Sources tell FOX 4 the gun was reported stolen."...


Added: Mexico is a de facto slave state. Minimum wage in Mexico is less than 50 cents an hour:

73.4 pesos/day.

73.4 Mexican pesos equals $3.76 US dollars per day, divided by 8 equals

47 cents an hour.

This guarantees constant pressure on the US southern border and constant death which the globalist US political class thinks is fine.


Trump leads Hillary by 4.1 in USC Dornsife LA Times Presidential Election poll through September 27, 2016

Trump 46.7
Hillary 42.6

9/28/16, USC Dornsife LA Times Presidential Election Daybreak Poll

"Presidential Election Vote

"This chart tracks our best estimate, over time, of how America plans to vote in November. 

The final blue and red figures on the right side of the chart represent our most recent estimates of Hillary Clinton's vote (blue squares) and Donald Trump's (red diamonds). These estimates represent weighted averages of all responses in the prior week. The gray band is a "95-percent confidence interval". Figures lying outside the gray band mean that we are at least 95% confident that the candidate with the highest percentage will win the popular vote.

Update: As of Monday September 19th, the Daybreak Poll’s charts will reflect a change in the way we compute the "area of uncertainty" represented by the gray band in each chart. This change means that candidate votes that are about 5 or 6 percentage points apart will be shown to be statistically significant (depending on sample size and how much variation there is in the voting). Our previous calculations required an interval of +/5.5 percentage points for significance in our election forecast, which we have determined was too conservative. We have adjusted the interval in the charts, and in the data provided in the poll’s csv files accordingly."

The jihadist and Tajik native was even given special US (Leaky) 'Leahy vetting' to ensure he'd be on our side, but he slipped through, per US State Dept.-CNN, May 2015

"The new ISIS military commander, Gulmurod Khalimov...attended and completed several State Department sponsored counterterrorism programs."...""All appropriate (Sen. Patrick) Leahy vetting was undertaken in advance of this training,"" but the terrorist still got through, said US State Dept. spokesperson. ("Leahy vetting," is named for US Sen.

"An ISIS fighter who calls for jihad in a new online video was trained in counterterrorism tactics on American soil, in a program run by the United States, officials tell CNN.

The video features a former police commander from Tajikistan named Col. Gulmurod Khalimov. He appears in black ISIS garb with a sniper rifle and a bandolier of ammunition. He says in the video that he participated in programs on U.S. soil three times, at least one of which was in Louisiana. 

The State Department has confirmed this claim. 

"From 2003-2014 Colonel Khalimov participated in five counterterrorism training course in the United States Colonel Khalimov participated in five counterterrorism training courses in the United States and in Tajikistan, through the Department of State's Diplomatic Security/Anti-Terrorism Assistance program," said spokeswoman Pooja Jhunjhunwala.

The program is intended to train candidates from participating countries in the latest counterterrorism tactics, so they can fight the very kind of militants that Khalimov has now joined. 

A State Department official said Khalimov was trained in crisis response, tactical management of special events, tactical leadership training and related issues.

In the video, Khalimov says that what he saw during his training sessions turned him against his sponsors. 

"Listen, you American pigs: I've been to America three times. I saw how you train soldiers to kill Muslims," he says in Russian. "You taught your soldiers how to surround and attack, in order to exterminate Islam and Muslims."

Then, in the most chilling part of the 10-minute video, he looks directly into the camera and says, "God willing, we will find your towns, we will come to your homes, and we will kill you." 

He then demonstrates his dexterity with a sniper rifle by blowing apart a tomato from a distance of perhaps 25 yards. The scene is played in slow motion. 

The American program in which Khalimov participated is designed to teach tactics used by police and military units against terrorists by countries that cooperate with the United States on security matters. But now experts are concerned that this defector has brought ISIS not only a propaganda victory, but also an insider's knowledge of the playbook the United States is using in the fight against ISIS. 

"That is a dangerous capability," said former Army intelligence officer Michael Breen. "It's never a good thing to have senior counterterrorism people become terrorists."

"It sounds like he was involved in defending sensitive people and sensitive targets," said Breen, who is now with the Truman Project in Washington. "He knows how to plan counterterrorism operations. So he knows how the people who protect a high-value target will be thinking; he knows how people who protect an embassy would be thinking."

Former Army sniper Paul Scharre, now with the Center for a New American Security, said Khalimov could not only help train other ISIS fighters in tactics, but also serve as a recruiter for the group.

"They're obviously trying to draw in recruits" with the video, he said.

Khalimov was an officer of the primary counterterrorism unit which responds to terrorist threats in Tajikistan, a State Department official said, so he and other members of his unit were recommended for the program by the Tajik government. 

"All appropriate Leahy vetting was undertaken in advance of this training," said spokeswoman Jhunjhunwala.

Scharre, who has served as a trainer of Afghan soldiers in Afghanistan, says there is always a risk that a trainee will turn against their American instructors. 

But Breen, who has also participated in training sessions overseas, said building counterterrorism partners requires a necessary leap of faith. "There's absolutely no way to beat an opponent like the Islamic State, without training a lot of people," he said. "That's a core of our strategy."
Added: "Leahy vetting" allows US taxpayer cash to be funneled to units who've committed atrocities in the past: 

"Leahy Fact Sheet," U.S. Department of State- Washington, D.C., 03-03-2016, 

"3. Can assistance be reinstated to tainted units? 

Yes. The Departments of State and Defense have adopted a joint policy on remediation that outlines a process for resuming DoD- and State-funded assistance to foreign security force units that had been ineligible for assistance under the Leahy laws. This can occur when the Departments determine that the government of that country has taken, or is taking, effective measures to bring those responsible to justice. Such measures may include impartial and thorough investigations; prosecutions or administrative actions; and appropriate and proportional sentencing."

The US political class compulsively floods the US with persons from terror countries, even puts them in US military environments throughout the country and gives them the best US taxpayer funded military training so they can kill us real good:

Fact Check: "You can’t fact check leadership, and tonight Donald Trump showed himself a leader. Viewers saw a Trump who was better than the liberal talking points"-USA Today, James Robbins

9/26/16, "Trump pulled off presidential: James Robbins," USA Today, columnist

"Like Reagan in 1980, viewers saw a Trump who was better than the liberal talking points"

"You can’t fact check leadership, and tonight Donald Trump showed himself a leader.

In the run-up to the Hofstra presidential debate, the Clinton campaign mounted a concerted effort to make fact-checking the centerpiece of the event. Campaign manager Robby Mook argued that "it’s unfair to ask that Hillary Clinton both play traffic cop with Trump, make sure that his lies are corrected, and also to present her vision for what she wants to do for the American people." Mook said that if Trump “lied,” it was moderator Lester Holt’s responsibility to point that out."...

[Ed. note: Hillary did state her "vision for what she wants to do for the American people" which is that she wants them to admit they have substandard characters and submit to "hard questions" on the matter. Her message to the world is that Americans must be scolded on a global stage like street children without parents. Mrs. Clinton was asked: "Do you believe police are implicitly biased against black people?" She replied: I think implicit bias is a problem for everyone, not just police. I think unfortunately too many of us in our great country jump to conclusions about each other and therefore I think we need all of us to be asked the hard questions ‘why am I feeling this way?’” The world has terrible problems today, most of which have been caused by the "experienced" Mrs. Clinton and others in the US political class. None of that class, least of all Mrs. Clinton, is fit to shine the shoes of average Americans much less pass judgement on their character.]

(continuing): "Fact-checking has never been an accepted role for debate moderators. Janet Brown, head of the Commission on Presidential Debates, said that a moderator should not “serve as the Encyclopedia Britannica.” And moderator Candy Crowley’s ill-advised intervention against Mitt Romney in 2012 showed why fact checking on the fly is a bad idea. 

It was strange that the truth-challenged Clinton would want to make an issue of facts. But there was certainly no shortage of checking. Veteran debate moderator Bob Schieffer said that “the chief fact-checkers are the candidates,” and Clinton and Trump agreed, vigorously challenging each other over facts, policies and opinions. In addition, the social media hive-mind was scrutinizing every word in real time. Anyone who needed to track down a fact had the entire connected world at their disposal.

Even in the pre-internet age, moderators did not see themselves as real-time arbiters of the ground truth. There were five journalists on the stage in October 1980 during the debate between Democratic President Jimmy Carter and Republican challenger Ronald Reagan, and none of them felt compelled to question the facts. Carter and Reagan took care of that. Fact checking was the occasion for Reagan’s memorable comment, there you go again,” when he was taking exception to Carter’s representation of his views on Medicare.

Overall, Carter kept Reagan on the defensive, and the president probably won on points. However, Reagan’s affability and easy manner wore well against Carter’s stern lecturing. Reagan did not come off as the cartoonish, conservative cowboy of Democratic talking points. The Lowell Sun observed, “Ronald Reagan had not self-destructed. He had not made any ill-advised statements that were clearly foolish, as Carter had hoped. Reagan appeared calm under Carter’s attack. With his polished stage manner, he went a long way in presenting himself as presidential timber.” Many Americans agreed. A Gallup poll two days before the debate showed Reagan trailing Carter 39% to 47%. A week later, Reagan won the election 51% to 41%.

The same words could apply to 2016. Donald Trump did not self-destruct, he did not make foolish statements (whether you agree with him or not), he gave as well as he got. And despite Clinton’s numerous mocking remarks to the contrary, he came off as presidential. And that’s a fact."

(Hillary) Clinton may claim she has lots of foreign policy experience, but the hard truth is that much of her experience has involved making grievous mistakes and bloody miscalculations."

April 1, 2016, Cleaning Up Hillary’s Libya Mess,” Consortium News, Robert Parry

"Exclusive: U.S. officials are pushing a dubious new scheme to “unify” a shattered Libya, but the political risk at home is that voters will finally realize Hillary Clinton's responsibility for the mess, writes Robert Parry."

"Hillary Clinton’s signature project as Secretary of State – theregime change" in Libya – is now sliding from the tragic to the tragicomic as her successors in the Obama administration adopt increasingly desperate strategies for imposing some kind of order on the once-prosperous North African country torn by civil war since Clinton pushed for the overthrow and murder of longtime Libyan ruler Muammar Gaddafi in 2011.

The problem that Clinton did much to create has grown more dangerous since Islamic State terrorists have gained a foothold in Sirte and begun their characteristic beheading of “infidels” as well as their plotting for terror attacks in nearby Europe."...


"Who would have thought that the neocons would have succeeded in destabilizing not only the Mideast but Europe as well." (6 parags. from end of article) "The truth is that this accelerating spread of human suffering can be traced back directly to the unchecked influence of the neocons and their liberal fellow-travelers who have resisted political compromise and, in the case of Syria, blocked any realistic efforts to work out a power-sharing agreement between Assad and his political opponents, those who are not terrorists." (parag. 5)

Sept. 2015 article:

9/7/2015, "How Neocons Destabilized Europe" by Robert Parry,
"Exclusive: The neocon prescription of endless “regime change” is spreading chaos across the Middle East and now into Europe, yet the neocons still control the mainstream U.S. narrative and thus have diagnosed the problem as not enough “regime change,” as Robert Parry reports."
"The refugee chaos that is now pushing deep into Europe...started with the cavalier ambitions of American neocons and their liberal-interventionist sidekicks who planned to remake the Middle East and other parts of the world through “regime change.”
Instead of the promised wonders of “democracy promotion” and “human rights,” what these “anti-realists” have accomplished is to spread death, destruction and destabilization across the Middle East and parts of Africa and now into Ukraine and the heart of Europe. Yet, since these neocon forces still control the Official Narrative, their explanations get top billing – such as that there hasn’t been enough “regime change.”
For instance, The Washington Post’s neocon editorial page editor Fred Hiatt on Monday (2015) blamed “realists” for the cascading catastrophes. Hiatt castigated them and President Barack Obama for not intervening more aggressively in Syria to depose President Bashar al-Assad, a longtime neocon target for “regime change.”

But the truth is that this accelerating spread of human suffering can be traced back directly to the unchecked influence of the neocons and their liberal fellow-travelers who have resisted political compromise and, in the case of Syria, blocked any realistic efforts to work out a power-sharing agreement between Assad and his political opponents, those who are not terrorists....

A Dozen Years of Chaos

So, we can now look at the consequences and costs of the past dozen years under the spell of neocon/liberal-hawk “regime change” strategies. According to many estimates, the death toll in Iraq, Syria and Libya has exceeded one million with several million more refugees flooding into – and stretching the resources – of fragile Mideast countries.

Hundreds of thousands of other refugees and migrants have fled to Europe, putting major strains on the Continent’s social structures already stressed by the severe recession that followed the 2008 Wall Street crash. Even without the refugee crisis, Greece and other southern European countries would be struggling to meet their citizens’ needs.

Stepping back for a moment and assessing the full impact of neoconservative policies, you might be amazed at how widely they have spread chaos across a large swath of the globe.
Who would have thought that the neocons would have succeeded in destabilizing not only the Mideast but Europe as well.

And, as Europe struggles, the export markets of China are squeezed, spreading economic instability to that crucial economy and, with its market shocks, the reverberations rumbling back to the United States, too.

We now see the human tragedies of neocon/liberal-hawk ideologies
captured in the suffering of the Syrians and other refugees flooding Europe and the death of children drowning as their desperate families flee the chaos created by “regime change.” But will the neocon/liberal-hawk grip on Official Washington finally be broken? Will a debate even be allowed about the dangers of “regime change” prescriptions in the future?

Not if the likes of The Washington Post’s Fred Hiatt have anything to say about it.
The truth is that Hiatt and other neocons retain their dominance of the mainstream U.S. news media, so all that one can expect from the various MSM outlets is more neocon propaganda, blaming the chaos not on their policy of “regime change” but on the failure to undertake even more “regime change.”

The one hope is that many Americans will not be fooled this time and that a belated “realism” will finally return to U.S. geopolitical strategies that will look for obtainable compromises to restore some political order to places such as Syria, Libya and Ukraine. Rather than more and more tough-guy/gal confrontations, maybe there will finally be some serious efforts at reconciliation.

But the other reality is that the interventionist forces have rooted themselves deeply in Official Washington, inside NATO, within the mainstream news media and even in European institutions. It will not be easy to rid the world of the grave dangers created by neocon policies."
