Gillum & his Radical Friends at Dream Defenders

Via Sunshine State News:

Some Floridians might not understand the Dream Defenders’ “manifesto” or the extent of Gillum’s interest in it.

This is a radical organization that demands an end to “disaster capitalism,” espouses socialist-style principals, rants against Independence Day and is active in the movement to boycott Israel while promoting anti-Israel conspiracies.

And Gillum and the Dream Defenders have had a long, close relationship which, frankly, has been largely unexplored in the mainstream media.

The Defenders’ agenda is so markedly anti-police and socialist in nature that last week the Broward Sheriff’s Office Deputies Association, the union for Broward deputies — traditionally as blue as their uniforms — came out in support of Republican DeSantis.

Jeff Bell, president of the union, explained why.

“When you look at Mr. Gillum’s track record, and with his association with groups such as the Dream Defenders, which is an anti-law enforcement, anti-government radical group, which calls for Andrew Gillum to sign a pledge, which he did, to promise if he is elected governor of the state of Florida to divert money away from law enforcement and away from prisons in the state of Florida … Now, taking away money from law enforcement does not protect the citizens of Florida,” Bell said. “It weakens the ability of law enforcement to actually protect the innocents.”

Andrew Gillum & Phillip Agnew go way back:

[G]illum’s connection with Dream Defenders does not begin months ago. That protest he mentioned, as he lauded the members and proudly joined? That was following the Trayvon Martin shooting while he was a city commissioner. In 2014 Dream Defenders shut down a police parade staged in Tallahassee, and the group touts that then Mayor Gillum ensured they were not to be arrested. That same year he penned a lengthy article[*] praising the founder of the organization, Phillip Agnew, which is not all that surprising. The two knew each other as student activists as far back as 2003 while attending Florida A&M.

*Gillum’s lengthy article praising Phillip Agnew in 2014, “We need more Phillip Agnews”:
Gillum was then director of George Soros-financed People For the American Way Foundation’s Youth Leadership Programs [Young People For (YP4)] and a City Commissioner in Tallahassee (FL):
[Link of Gillum praising Agnew: #https://ibw21.org/editors-choice/we-need-more-phillip-agnews/ or archived here.]

In the 10 years since People For the American Way Foundation started a program to support the next generation of progressive leaders, we have seen what can happen when organizations make real investments in young people.

… But at PFAW Foundation’s Young People For (YP4) program, we’ve learned that these short-term approaches to leadership development are a tiny component of what actually goes into developing a catalytic leader.

Take, for example, Phillip Agnew of the Dream Defenders. Agnew catapulted into the national spotlight last year when he led more than sixty young people into Florida Governor Rick Scott’s office three days after the jury handed down a heartbreaking “not guilty” verdict in George Zimmerman’s trial. But long before he was a national leader, Phillip Agnew was a business administration major at Florida A&M University who decided to join the inaugural 2005 fellowship class of Young People For. […]

Seven years later, in response to the shooting of Florida teen Trayvon Martin, Agnew built on his past social justice experiences and connections to form the Dream Defenders, which helped bring national attention to the Martin case. From Governor Scott’s office, the Dream Defenders pushed for a repeal of Florida’s Stand Your Ground law and a special legislative session on racial profiling and the school-to-prison pipeline, among other demands.

Via Sunshine State News:

The Pledge includes numerous alarming elements that show Floridians should indeed question Gillum a little more closely on his priorities:

“I will fight for a Florida that will divest from prisons, detention centers, guns, and police,” reads the Pledge, “and invests in the basic needs and safety of its people, especially its children.”

(Of note, at the top of the Pledge is a well-circulated photo of the interior of a passenger van that has been retrofitted with rows of child restraint seats. Once dubbed by leftists as Trump’s “prison buses for children,” it later was revealed these were commissioned in 2016 by the Obama Administration.)

Via Sunshine State News:

In similar fashion to the signed Pledge, a member of Dream Defenders took the stage at the Primary debate and asked all the candidates to promise not to accept money from private prisons. And they promised.

During his turn, Gillum stated that private prisons should be illegal in the state. He expounded on his Pledge, noting a time when members of Dream Defenders had occupied floor space in the Capitol, staging a sit-in protest. Gillum boasted that he had snuck food in for the protesters every night, and that he was proud “to stand up for you, and stand beside you,” during that time. (See the YouTube clip on this page, or click here.) This is the group to which he tried to feign ignorance of pledging on Sunday.

Remembering 9/11/2012 Islamist Attack to U.S. Embassy in Benghazi, Libya

Posted by FactReal on September 11, 2018

On September 11, 2012 (the 11th anniversary of the 9/11/2001 attack), Islamic gunmen stormed the U.S. consulate in Benghazi, Libya.
(See Factreal’s original report here).

Four Americans were killed:
– Chris Stevens, U.S. Ambassador to Libya for the Obama administration
– Glen Doherty, retired Navy SEAL working as civilian security
– Sean Smith, Air Force veteran working for the State Dept. in Libya
– Tyrone Woods, retired Navy SEAL working as civilian security

The Obama administration tried to blame an obscure, stupid YouTube video for the attack, when in reality it was another Islamic attack on the U.S.
(Emails during Libya Attack: Al Qaeda-tied Group Responsible. Obama White House knew it.)

Nonetheless, the Obama administration arrested the man behind the silly video about Mohammed to distract from the real perpetrators: Islamists.

Remembering 9/11/2001 Islamic Attack on the U.S.

Posted by FactReal on September 11, 2018

Via History Channel:
“On September 11, 2001, 19 militants associated with the Islamic extremist group al-Qaeda hijacked four airplanes and carried out suicide attacks against targets in the United States. Two of the planes were flown into the twin towers of the World Trade Center in New York City, a third plane hit the Pentagon just outside Washington, D.C., and the fourth plane crashed in a field in Pennsylvania. Almost 3,000 people were killed during the 9/11 terrorist attacks, which triggered major U.S. initiatives to combat terrorism and defined the presidency of George W. Bush.”

Flashback: Susan Rice on 5 Sunday Shows Blaming Benghazi Attack on a YouTube Video

Posted by FactReal on April 3, 2017

Susan Rice, then Obama’s Ambassador to the United Nations, went on five separate Sunday television news shows on September 16, 2012, and falsely claimed that the Islamic Benghazi attack was not pre-planned but a “spontaneous” reaction to a Mohammed YouTube video, which at the time was mostly obscure and unwatched.

On September 11, 2012, Islamic terrorists attacked the American compound in Benghazi, Libya. Four Americans were killed, including U.S. Ambassador Chris Stevens.

After the attack, Susan Rice and the Obama administration went out of their way to give the Islamic terrorists an excuse for the attack. The pretext: an obscure, low-budget YouTube video about Mohammed.


Here is Susan Rice on 5 Sunday TV shows blaming the obscure YouTube video for the Islamic attack on our consulate in Benghazi.
‘Fox News Sunday’ with Chris Wallace

WALLACE: Joining us now our ambassador to the United Nations, Susan Rice. Ambassador, welcome back to “Fox News Sunday.”


WALLACE: This week, there have been anti-American protests in two dozen countries across the Islamic world. The White House says it has nothing to do with the president’s policies.

Let’s watch.


JAY CARNEY, WHITE HOUSE PRESS SECRETARY: This is not a case of protests directed at the United States writ large or at U.S. policy. This is in response to a video that is offensive.


WALLACE: You don’t really believe that?

RICE: Chris, absolutely I believe that. In fact, it is the case. We had the evolution of the Arab spring over the last many months. But what sparked the recent violence was the airing on the Internet of a very hateful very offensive video that has offended many people around the world.


RICE: …Obviously, the last couple of days have been some what better. But we are vigilant and we are of the view that is not an expression of hospitality in the broadest sense towards the United States or U.S. policy. It’s approximately a reaction to this video and it’s a hateful video that had nothing to do with the United States and which we find disgusting and reprehensible.

CBS’s Sunday Show ‘Face the Nation’ with Bob Schieffer

SUSAN RICE: …So we’ll want to see the results of that investigation to draw any definitive conclusions. But based on the best information we have to date, what our assessment is as of the present is in fact what began spontaneously in Benghazi as a reaction to what had transpired some hours earlier in Cairo where, of course, as you know, there was a violent protest outside of our embassy–


SUSAN RICE: –sparked by this hateful video. But soon after that spontaneous protest began outside of our consulate in Benghazi …

ABC’s ‘This Week’ with Jake Tapper

RICE: Well, Jake, first of all, it’s important to know that there’s an FBI investigation that has begun and will take some time to be completed. That will tell us with certainty what transpired.

But our current best assessment, based on the information that we have at present, is that, in fact, what this began as, it was a spontaneous — not a premeditated — response to what had transpired in Cairo. In Cairo, as you know, a few hours earlier, there was a violent protest that was undertaken in reaction to this very offensive video that was disseminated.


RICE: It’s actually the opposite. First of all, let’s be clear about what transpired here. What happened this week in Cairo, in Benghazi, in many other parts of the region…

TAPPER: Tunisia, Khartoum…

RICE: … was a result — a direct result of a heinous and offensive video that was widely disseminated, that the U.S. government had nothing to do with, which we have made clear is reprehensible and disgusting. We have also been very clear in saying that there is no excuse for violence, there is — that we have condemned it in the strongest possible terms.

NBC’s ‘Meet the Press’ with David Gregory

MS. RICE: Well, David, we can’t predict with any certainty. But let’s remember what has transpired over the last several days. This is a response to a hateful and offensive video that was widely disseminated throughout the Arab and Muslim world. Obviously, our view is that there is absolutely no excuse for violence and that– what has happened is condemnable, but this is a– a spontaneous reaction to a video

CNN’s ‘State of the Union’ with Candy Crowley

RICE: Well, Candy, first of all, let’s recall what has happened in the last several days. There was a hateful video that was disseminated on the internet. It had nothing to do with the United States government and it’s one that we find disgusting and reprehensible. It’s been offensive to many, many people around the world.

That sparked violence in various parts of the world, including violence directed against western facilities including our embassies and consulates. That violence is absolutely unacceptable, it’s not a response that one can ever condone when it comes to such a video. And we have been working very closely and, indeed, effectively with the governments in the region and around the world to secure our personnel, secure our embassy, condemn the violent response to this video.

Of course, Susan Rice has no regrets for lying to America on Benghazi:

Nakoula Basseley Nakoula, the Coptic Christian whose short video “The Innocence of Muslims” was initially faulted for sparking the Sept. 11, 2012 terror attack at U.S. diplomatic compounds in Libya, is now living in a homeless shelter run by First Southern Baptist Church in Buena Park, Calif. He has served time in prison, been shamed publicly by the White House and threatened with death.

WTC Bombing 20 Years ago…under President Bill Clinton

Posted by FactReal on February 26, 2013

Islamic terrorists attacked Americans many times before September 11, 2001. One of those attacks was the first World Trade Center bombing in 1993.

The Morning of Feb. 26, 1993
“The epicenter was the parking garage beneath the World Trade Center, where a massive eruption carved out a nearly 100-foot crater several stories deep and several more high,” the FBI summarized.

“On the morning of Feb. 26, 1993, Eyad Ismoil drove a rented Ryder Ford F350 Econoline truck packed with 1,500 pounds of fertilizer-based explosives into level B-2 of the underground garage beneath the World Trade Center. Ismoil departed, leaving a timing device set to detonate the explosives a while later.

At 12:18 p.m., the bomb exploded, killing six, creating a crater 150 feet in diameter that blew a hole five floors deep in the parking garage. The towers, however, did not fall. […]

Yousef, the mastermind of the plot, later said he had hoped to kill tens of thousands.

The explosives were manufactured at a Jersey City apartment, using chemicals ordered from a supply company. They were placed in the truck at a rented storage shed alongside three tanks of compressed hydrogen gas, purchased to enhance the destructive power of the explosives.

The plotters, including Yousef and Yasin, built the bombs using manuals brought from Pakistan.”

WTC Bombing, 1993, Islamic Attacks against USA

1993 WTC BOMBING: An Islamic Attack

Terrorist Organizations: Al-Qaeda, Al-Gamaa al-Islamiyya, Liberation Army Fifth Battalion Al Fareeq Al Rokn, Abu Bakr Al Makkee.
Terrorists: Ramzi Yousef (Operational Commander), Eyad Ismoil (Attacker). Facilitators: Mohammad Salameh, Nidal Ayyad, Abdul Rahman Yasin, Mahmud Abouhalima, Ahmad Mohammed Ajaj. Financier: Khalid Shaikh Mohammed
Victims: Six people were killed almost instantly: John DiGiovanni, Robert Kirkpatrick, Stephen Knapp, William Macko, Wilfredo Mercado and Monica Smith. “Smoke and flames began filling the wound and streaming upward into the building. Those who weren’t trapped were soon pouring out of the building—many panic-stricken and covered in soot. More than a thousand people were hurt in some way, some badly, with crushed limbs,” the FBI recounted.

The FBI Provides more Details of the Attack and the Terrorists
“An Islamic fundamentalist named Mohammad Salameh had rented the vehicle, we learned, and on March 4, an FBI SWAT team arrested him as he tried in vain to get his $400 deposit back.

One clue led to another and we soon had in custody three more suspects—Nidal Ayyad, Mahmoud Abouhalima, and Ahmed Ajaj. We’d also found the apartment where the bomb was built and a storage locker containing dangerous chemicals, including enough cyanide gas to wipe out a town. All four men were tried, convicted, and sentenced to life.

The shockwave from the attack continued to reverberate. Following the unfolding connections, the task force soon uncovered a second terrorist plot to bomb a series of New York landmarks simultaneously, including the U.N. building, the Holland and Lincoln Tunnels, and the federal plaza where our office in New York is housed. On June 24, 1994, FBI agents stormed a warehouse in Queens and caught several members of a terrorist cell in the act of assembling bombs.

Meanwhile, the mastermind of the World Trade Center bombing was still on the run—and up to no good. We’d learned his name—Ramzi Yousef—within weeks after the attack and discovered he was planning more attacks, including the simultaneous bombing of a dozen U.S. international flights. Yousef was captured in Pakistan in February 1995, returned to America, and convicted along with the van driver, Eyad Ismoil. A seventh plotter, Abdul Yasin, remains at large.

We later learned from Yousef that his Trade Center plot was far more sinister. He wanted the bomb to topple one tower, with the collapsing debris knocking down the second. The attack turned out to be something of a deadly dress rehearsal for 9/11; with the help of Yousef’s uncle Khalid Sheikh Mohammed, al Qaeda would later return to realize Yousef’s nightmarish vision.”

Bill Clinton’s Failures Unleashed Global Terror
Via The Washington Times:

The Clinton foreign policy was to get re-elected. Therefore, anything that might be controversial had to be avoided. So, from the beginning to the end of the administration, the Clintons “demanded absolute proof before acting against terrorists.” This high bar guaranteed inaction. At the beginning of his term, after the attack of Feb. 26, 1993, Mr. Clinton refused to admit that the World Trade Center had been bombed. Later, he referred to it only as “regrettable” and “treated the disaster… like a twister in Arkansas.” Earlier, he had “urged the public not to ‘overreact’ to the 1993 World Trade Center bombing.”

Hillary Clinton No $$$ for Benghazi Security, but Spent Millions for Art, Kindles, Obama Books, Mosques Restorations, …

Hillary Clinton 'Benghazi Bob'
(Image by Looking Spoon via Weasel Zippers)
During yesterday’s Benghazi testimony, Hillary Clinton lied about the State Department not having enough funding to provide proper security for the U.S. consulate in Benghazi, Libya.

But in fact the State Department ($50+ billion dollar annual budget) had enough money for these items:
● $4.5 million for Art in Embassies
● $16 million dollars on 2,500 kindle book readers at the drastically inflated price of $6,600 per device (that retails for $189)
● $$ Millions to preserve mosques and minarets in 27 different Islamic countries
● $150,000+ for a Chevy Volt and its charging station for the US Embassy in Austria
● $150,000 to spend on a book about the residence of the U.S. Ambassador to Italy
● $79,000 to spend on Obama’s books
● $20,000 on a portrait of Obama

And also:
● $7.9 billion dollars for Obama’s Global Health Initiative
● $2.9 billion for international debt relief
● $2.2 billion to strengthen democratic institutions in Pakistan
● $770 million dollar Middle East and North Africa Incentive Fund for the failed Arab Spring which has put extremist Islamists in power
● $587 million for student exchange programs
● $469 million for global climate change
● $200 million dollars were wasted on Iraqi police training that never went anywhere

The Obama administration repeatedly rejected requests for more security in Benghazi, even though Islamist militias attacked the consulate multiple times prior to the 9/11/2012 attack and Ambassador Stevens repeatedly notified the administration about increasing security threats in Libya.
