Video: Debbie Wasserman Schultz Sticks Up For Imran Awan

Beleaguered Florida Democrat Debbie Wasserman Schultz has spoken out in defense of her former IT staffer, bank fraud suspect Imran Awan.

In a press conference on Tuesday, Wasserman Schultz stated of Awan, who was arrested trying to flee the country several weeks ago, “when he was arrested, I terminated him. I kept him on the payroll during the time that he was not arrested and not charged with anything. And that was because, as I said, that I was concerned about the violation of his due process rights and also that there were racial and ethnic profiling concerns as well.”

Awan – a Pakistani native facing a bank fraud charge – had been shrouded in controversy for several months by the time Wasserman Schultz finally let him go.

The controversy, as previously reported, first began in April of 2016, when House administrators noticed significant discrepancies between the computer equipment invoiced to the House and the equipment that was actually on hand.

Investigators eventually traced the discrepancies to Awan and four family members, who were all subsequently fired by the House members that employed them – except Debbie Wasserman Schultz, that is.

During her conversation with reporters on Tuesday, Wasserman Schultz stated that she felt significant sympathy for Awan & co. at the time.

“Their children were being bullied at school. And they were experiencing the things that I was concerned about in terms of racial, ethnic and religious profiling, and so they lost their jobs, lost their livelihood,” she said.

Wasserman Schultz refused to elaborate further on the “persecution” Awan and his family reportedly faced as a result of their own alleged criminal activities.

Leftist Hero Valerie Plame-Wilson Apologizes For Promoting Article Blaming Jews For America’s Problems

Published

on

Earlier today, obscure left-wing starlet, Valerie Plame-Wilson, retweeted a bizarre anti-semitic article from Philip Giraldi at UNZ.com, which suggested that Jewish media personalities should be identified whenever they are making comments on TV — like a warning label on a bottle of rat poison — so that the public can be aware of their dangerous ulterior motives of promoting Zionism.

In case you’re suffering from “Gosh-that-name-sounds-familiar” syndrome let’s review a bit about Mrs. Plame-Wilson.

Valerie Plame-Wilson was once a relatively unremarkable CIA analyst who had been thrust into Left-wing stardom after her cover was blown by a Washington Post article by Robert Novak in 2004. The Left quickly blamed the Bush Administration for leaking her name as retribution for her husband, Joe Wilson’s, New York Times op ed piece in which he claimed to have debunked Bush’s assertion that Iraq had been seeking “yellow-cake” uranium from Niger and therefore the whole Iraq war was based on a lie.

Of course Joe Wilson’s story was later itself debunked as Bush had based his statement on British intelligence (which the British still stand by). But in the aftermath, Plame-Wilson and her husband found fame and fortune and lucrative book deals and movies.

These days, Plame-Wilson is desperately trying to keep herself relevant. She has a website and a Twitter account in which she loves to opine on any number of left-wing causes.

Which brings us to her current fifteen minutes of fame.

When she was quickly criticized for today’s tweet, she defended it by tweeting that “re-tweeting doesn’t mean endorsement.”

She then tweeted a few more tweets defending the basic argument of the article itself: that wealthy and well-connected American Jews are pushing political policies that will get the U.S. into a War with Iran.

“Put aside your biases and think clearly,” she lectured in one tweet.

But then reality set in and two hours later, she tweeted an apology, saying she had “missed the gross undercurrents to this article” and didn’t do her “homework on the platform this piece came from.”

She also tweeted that there was “so much there that’s problematic” (in the UNZ article) and that her mistake was “a doozy” and that she had merely “skimmed” the article and “zeroed in on the neocon criticism and shared it without seeing and considering the rest.”

But the Washington Examiner points out that Plame’s claim to have been unfamiliar with the platform of the article—that is UNZ.com—seems a little disingenuous since she has re-tweeted several articles from them over the past few years.

Articles, for example, about Israelis dancing for joy on 9/11 and articles titled “Why I Still Dislike Israel.”

She must have missed the undercurrents on those articles as well.

If this is the quality of research and discernment Mrs. Plame-Wilson is only capable of, we should all thank God that she’s no longer working in the CIA.

Bombshell: Imran Awan Allegedly Threatened, Abused At Least 3 Women

Published

on

In an article posted by The Daily Caller yesterday, the news site linked to Fairfax County Police reports obtained under Virginia’s freedom of information act. The reports indicate a number of disturbing details about Imran Awan, the recently indicted former IT aid for Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz.

At least three woman are officially are listed in the reports as having alleged physical abuse by Awan. The first alleged victim stated “I just wanted to leave.”

The second indicated she felt like a “slave.”

“The third woman is Awan’s stepmother, Samina Gilani, who said in court documents that Awan invoked his authority as a congressional employee to intimidate immigrant women, in part by telling them he had the power to have people kidnapped,” The Daily Caller reports.

Here is the investigation report from the FCPD. The Daily Caller continued “Neither of the other two women who complained are married to Awan, though both were apparently in relationships with him. Awan’s wife, Hina Alvi, worked as an IT aide for dozens of members of Congress, including Wasserman Schultz. The two women who called the police both lived in the same Alexandria, Va., complex but in different apartments for which Imran paid.”

The second reported incident took place in July of 2016.

This report has the victim listed as a female named Samara Sidique. In the narrative the responding investigator stated that Ms. Sidique reported that she felt “like a slave to this man.”

Sidique also requested information on how to obtain a restraining order against Awan.

Police had responded to altercations between Sidique and Awan reportedly three times in less than 12 months, once finding “small cut[s] on stomach and arm.”

The third incident was reported in this court document and congruent third police report filed in April of 2017 Gilani Samina,

“Imran Awan showed up and threatened me for calling the police. Mr. Shahid Imran Awan threatened that he is very powerful and if I ever call the police [he] will do harm to me and my family members back in Pakistan and one of my cousins here in Baltimore.”

Given the current legal trouble for Imran Awan and the scandals within the DNC, the situation doesn’t look good at all for Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz.

8-Year-Old Football Players From St. Louis Kneel For The National Anthem

Published

on

While it’s easy to dismiss unemployed quarterback Colin Kaepernick as a washed-up never-was that is seriously detached from reality, there’s more than meets the eye.

Kaepernick has succeeded in becoming a Leftist darling by starting the trend of disrespecting the National Anthem for unclear reasons. The mainstream media has lapped up his actions like a dehydrated camel that comes across a body of water, and the end result has been a warped interpretation that he’s some kind of hero.

That too is also easy to dismiss as just the viewpoint of deranged Leftists, but the unfortunate reality is that Kaepernick and his fawning coverage have an effect on impressionable young minds. While it’s ultimately on the kids parents to set them straight, sometimes the parents don’t see it that way.

As such, Johnny and Jennifer are allowed to express themselves as they see fit, and there are other adults out there that encourage them to do so. We have another disturbing example of that, courtesy of this youth football coach from suburban St. Louis.

Orlando Gooden coaches a youth football team comprised of eight-year-olds. He claims that the kids came to him to talk about the riots that have happened in St. Louis. This is how he handled it.

“One of the kids asked me if I saw [people] protesting and rioting in St. Louis,” Gooden explained, according to Breitbart. “I said yes. I said, ‘Do you know why they are doing it?’”

According to Gooden, one of the kids said that it was “Because black people are getting killed and nobody’s going to jail,” Breitbart notes.

Then one of the kids suggested that they should handle it like Kaepernick would. Gooden gave his blessing, and disturbing images of the kids kneeling and disrespecting the anthem have been making the rounds.

Gooden noted that it was a “good teaching moment,” but he seems oblivious to the fact that he completely dropped the ball.

“What I teach my kids is love, integrity, honesty, fairness, respect and boundaries,” he added, according to Breitbart. “As long as I have support of my parents and team, I’m perfectly fine, and I’m covered under the First Amendment to peacefully protest and assemble.”

Perfectly fine is not a phrase that we would use to describe this youth football coach, who would be doing the rest of America a great favor by staying as far away from impressionable young minds as possible.
