"Muhammad gave us the glad tidings that at the End of Time, we will fight those Jews” - Good News for Modern Muslims

North Carolina imam: “Muhammad gave us the glad tidings that at the End of Time, we will fight those Jews”
This IMAM cited an antisemitic hadith! This is not “extremist” Islam, these words are from AUTHENTIC STANDARD MAINSTREAM ISLAMIC text! #Hannity pic.twitter.com/hWrKTf6X1W

I think this is the most important thing Tom said - "The pressure is working!"
We have to keep that same faith and keep pushing in the same direction.
Americans and Australians are good people.
We know right from wrong.
In the end we will win together as long as we keep pushing together.
Tom and his team use the system and where the system fails or is corrupted they call it!
Never allow yourself to accept what the Clintons or Gillard did.
Never say it's OK - because it's very, very far from OK.

Be Careful What you Wish For.
In today’s crazy world, western politicians are wasting billions of tax-payer dollars force-feeding costly unreliable green energy in the bizarre belief that this will somehow change Earth’s climate.
Even more incredible, they fear global warmth and seem hell-bent on creating global cooling. They should study climate history. It is snow and ice, cold dry air and carbon dioxide starvation we need to fear, not a warm, moist, fertile, bountiful atmosphere.
Climate change is natural and unstoppable.
Just 20,000 years ago, Earth was in one of its recurring glacial phases. A thick massive ice sheet smothered Canada, Alaska, Iceland, Greenland, North Asia and Europe as far south as London. Much of the animal and plant life of the previous warm era was extinguished. Even in warmer lands not covered by the ice sheet, plants suffered as the cold oceans removed moisture and carbon dioxide plant food from the atmosphere.
Then, because of changing cycles in Earth’s orbit and tilt, reinforced by changing solar cycles, the sun warmed the frozen lands. The great ice sheets melted, sea levels rose and the warming oceans expelled moisture and CO2 plant food into the atmosphere. Plant life recovered. Tundra, forests, grasslands and herbivores advanced towards the pole and fish became abundant in the shallow seas that flooded coastal plains. Hunters, herders, farmers and fishermen followed the food.
Human population increased greatly. They gave thanks for the warmth, and worshipped the sun.
But the peak of the modern warm era is past, and the natural cycles controlling global temperatures are pointing downwards.
Only an idiot with a death wish for life on Earth would attempt to accelerate our inevitable descent into the next ice age.
Luckily, their costly war on warmth is totally futile, but their war on carbon energy will prove tragically misguided in the cold times ahead.
Washpool Qld Australia
On 29 February 2016 - almost two years ago - I wrote to Foreign Minister Julie Bishop (via her senior advisor):
This is just a heads up. I have very good contacts in the United States including lawyers working on the Clinton Foundation. There are some matters that might be of concern to the Australian Government, particularly flowing from Bill Clinton's surrender of his law licence (both in Arkansas and the US Supreme Court) in 2001 over Clinton V Jones and disclosures to the US Charitable Foundation regulatory authorities.
You might want to have a look at some of the material pointed to in this piece I published this morning. I'll write more formally later for comment.
com/2016/02/more-problems-for- dfat-and-the-clintons-over- 70m-we-appear-to-have-donated- to-a-conman.html
On Tuesday 1 March I emailed this formal request for comment
Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade
I refer in part to DFAT's release of documents posted on its FOI log here:
In what capacity did Bill Clinton sign the 22 February 2006 MOU with the Australian Government?
Under the heading "Australian Aid Funding to the Clinton Foundation" DFAT's briefing paper refers to a "range of measures concerning the transparency and accountability" of the Foundation, agreed to by President Clinton.
What were they?
Given that President Clinton did not become a trustee, officer or director of the Clinton Foundation until 2013 how was his "agreement" to the transparency and accountability measures operative?
I note that DFAT has donated about $36M (according to the table in your FOI release) to the Clinton Foundation HIV/Aids Initiative inc.
Is DFAT satisfied that the Clinton Foundation HIV/Aids Initiative Incorporated was appropriately registered by US authorities to receive donations from foreign governments for aid funding?
On 31 March 2008 the Clinton Foundation HIV/AIDS Initiative Inc was dissolved by regulatory authorities in the Commonwealth of Massachusetts (the reregistration was backdated to and operative from 31 December 2007 and became operative at that date as a result of breaches of the law by the entity). The entity wasn't merged with another, it was dissolved.
Last night I received a statement from Mr Howard Cutter of the Corporations Division, Secretary of the Commonwealth of Massachusetts in relation to the Clinton Foundation HIV/Aids Initiative Inc (I refer to the extract from their records showing the involuntary dissolution details attached).
Mr Cutter's statement says: "The entity was dissolved by our office for failure to file annual reports in consecutive years."
DFAT and AusTender.gov.au records report that DFAT continued to purportedly deal with the Clinton Foundation HIV/Aids Initiative Inc for some years after it was dissolved by the Massachusetts authorities. Does DFAT have any comment on this matter?
I received no acknowledgement for several days.
I sent chasers.
Ms Bishop's staff said they hadn't received my email.
I wrote and offered to send all the background material I'd received from my sources in the US.
The Minister and her staff literally didn't want to know.
A full week later I received this reply:
Michael, thanks for your query.
The following can be attributed to a spokesperson for the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade:
“Former US President Bill Clinton signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) with the Australian Government in 2006 in his capacity as the Founder and Representative of the William J Clinton Foundation. The MOU is a non-binding cooperation agreement with the intent to fight HIV/AIDS in China, Vietnam and Papua New Guinea. All funding arrangements are accompanied by specific legal funding agreements with specified outcomes, deliverables, budgets and conditions. No donations were provided to the Clinton Foundation.”
“All DFAT funding agreements are with Clinton Health Access Initiative - a separate legal entity from Clinton Foundation since 2010 – to deliver HIV/AIDS treatment to a range of Asia-Pacific countries.”
For your background, the “range of measures concerning transparency and accountability” of the Foundation mentioned in DFAT’s briefing document refers to an agreement between the Clinton Foundation and the US Government concerning Hillary Clinton’s nomination as Secretary of State. It bears no relation to the Australian Government’s funding agreements with Clinton Health Access Initiative.

That was the end of my previously good relationship with Julie Bishop.
This stuff didn't happen on Ms Bishop's watch and she could have noted there were deficiencies, we've learnt, we've fixed things up etc.
But she didn't. She went out of her way to protect the Clintons.
It was all apparently hunky dory.
Only we were lied to.
All was not hunky dory at all.
The biggest contract under the $25M MOU was the Clinton Foundation HIV/Aids Initiative PNG - all up we gave the Clintons about $15M between 2006 and 2009.
The CF was supposed to "complement" our funding by making its own contribution.
We put in $15M odd cash but according to the final report,
"CF has contributed paediatric ARVs, paediatric OI drugs, commodities for the Early Infant Diagnosis Program (e.g. reagents, equipment including PCR machine) totalling US$417,622 USD as of June 2009".
That project was independently audited at a cost of about $100K - the audit report is here:
Here are some direct quotes:
assessment of value for money has not been possible due to insufficient financial information in project reporting
the inadequacy of project documentation has quite significantly affected the ability to undertake a systematic evaluation of the project.
inadequate outcome indicators against one consistent set of objectives limits the extent to which there can be an acceptable discussion about effectiveness.
The Audit noted the project had
- no statement of project goal or purpose,
- no clear Program Area objectives and
- no targets
The auditors noted:
A Funding Agreement was signed in July 2006 between the government of Australia and CHAI. This outlined the terms and conditions of the arrangement between AusAID and CHAI for the implementation of CHAI in PNG. This agreement states that “the parties agree to monitor the Program against the Program Milestones and evaluate it against the Program Outcomes.” The defining document against which this occurs is the Program Workplan 2006- 2009. As noted above there is no stated objective/outcome in this document (or any documents subsequent to this) for the whole project (and associated indicators). Outcomes or objectives for each of the AoC are not articulated (thus no indicators provided). It is therefore impossible for this part of the agreement to be adhered to.
the overarching goal/purpose/objective of the CHAI was never clearly articulated, and thus no indicators to measure its achievement have been presented in any project documentation.
In the absence of a clear statement of objectives at the overall project level, and objective statements without indicators at the Program Area level it is not possible to say with any degree of confidence whether CHAI has been effective.
I wrote to Ms Bishop's department pointing out in chapter and verse the adverse findings in the audit and other reports.
Thanks for your enquiry.
The following information is for your background.
The funding agreement for the PNG Clinton Foundation agreement 2006-2010 had specified outcomes, deliverables, budgets and conditions including the supply of audited Financial Statements. Australian Government funding was delivered as per the agreed schedule and milestones met under the terms of the agreement.
The Clinton Foundation worked in partnership with both the Australian Government and UNITAID on paediatric HIV. UNITAID assisted in the procurement of affordable paediatric medications and this program supported the services to provide these medications to children.
The Australian Government regularly reviews and evaluates the performance of aid program projects, including ongoing monitoring of programs to identify both progress against outcomes and possible areas for improvement. More information on how we manage performance is on the DFAT website.

Is it just me - or is there an apparent push to protect the Clintons - to the detriment of Australia's interests.
In May 2015 Bill Clinton thought of Julie Bishop as one of the Clinton Foundation's "closest supporters" - so close and so supportive he invited her to New York for the CF's annual internal planning retreat.
Clinton's personal invitation was delivered through then Ambassador Kim Beazley direct to the Foreign Minister's office.
Clinton used the formal diplomatic channel to ask our Foreign Minister to take part in the planning day with him and his top advisors/leadership team "to celebrate our shared success, reflect on recent accomplishments and engage in discussion around our priorities for the year ahead."
"We hope you'll join us to share your input and to help us shape our work for the years to come. Thank you for your continued friendship and thought leadership".
This is just over 18 months ago. The level of intimacy given recent disclosures is frightening.
Just months prior to the invitation, Bishop was in New York for the Clinton Global Initiative where she made this announcement:
Former US President Bill Clinton and I have witnessed the signing of a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) committing Australia and the Clinton Health Access Initiative (CHAI) to work together to transform access to health in developing countries over the next five years.
The MOU will support Australia’s $5 billion aid program, which encourages innovation in research and new technologies to promote sustainable economic growth and alleviate poverty. It will also build expertise and networks in facilitating public‑private partnerships, civil society, and private sector financing for health investments.
Australia has previously worked with CHAI in Papua New Guinea, Indonesia, Vietnam and China to build capacity in government health services and systems, improve access to life‑saving technologies and lower the costs of treatment.
The Australian Government will pursue these innovative partnerships to strengthen health systems, improve maternal and child health and tackle communicable diseases, including control of drug-resistant malaria and tuberculosis.
I have announced the establishment of a Development Innovation Hub within the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade which will test creative ideas and strategies to address different development challenges.
Since 2006, Australia has contributed $88 million to CHAI and its sister organisation, the Clinton Foundation.

And expect a lot more from me as I assemble evidence and other documents for transmission to the FBI.
The US Supreme and Arkansas Supreme Court orders disbarring Bill Clinton as a lawyer - and the prohibition on him acting for a US charity
Clinton's capacity to lawfully act for a US charity will be an issue in the investigation of the corrupt donations made to the Clinton Foundation - funded by Australian taxpayers.
A person who is disbarred as a lawyer for offences of dishonesty is incapable of acting as a trustee or director or "responsible person" for a US charity.
On Monday 1 October 2001 William J Clinton was disbarred as a lawyer by the US Supreme Court - here's the New York Times report:
This is the order of the Arkansas authorities disbarring Clinton.
More on this important issue soon.
Formal complaints to the FBI regarding suspect Australian taxpayer donations to the Clinton Foundation
You will be aware that criminal investigations involving the Clinton Foundation are now underway in the United States.
I have been asked to provide the FBI with further and better particulars about allegations regarding improper donations to the CF funded by Australian taxpayers.
I am now preparing complaints/referrals to the FBI regarding the following matters:
- A $25M financial advantage dishonestly obtained by deception in the 22 February 2006 MOU between
- the Australian Government and
- the Clinton Presidential Library and
- the Clinton HIV/Aids Initiative Inc (CHAI) -
- Offenders Bill CLINTON and Alexander DOWNER.
- The corrupt October 2006 backdating of false tender advertisements purporting to advertise the availability of
- a $15M contract to provide HIV/Aids services in PNG
- on behalf of the Australian Government,
- after an agreement was already in place to pay the Clinton Foundation and/or associates.
- Offenders Bill CLINTON and Alexander DOWNER
- The unlawful and corrupt incorporation of an incorporated association known as
- the "William J. Clinton Foundation HIV/Aids Initiative - PNG" - which took place
- between 21 August 2006 and 10:03AM on 24 August 2006 - at
- Port Moresby, Papua New Guinea
- Offenders Ruby SHANG and Bill CLINTON and certain PNG officials
- The $10M financial advantage dishonestly obtained by deception
- between 1 April 2008 and 25 September 2008, at
- Washington DC, New York NY and Canberra Australia, involving an MOU between
- the Australian Government,
- the "Clinton Climate Initiative" and
- the purported "Global Carbon Capture and Storage Institute Inc"
- Offenders Kevin Michael RUDD, Bill CLINTON, Hillary CLINTON
- The $14M financial advantage dishonestly obtained by deception
- during September 2012 at
- Canberra Australia and New York NY, involving the award of
- a contract to the Clinton Foundation to design and build a carbon accounting scheme in Kenya
- on behalf of The Australian Government; and
- certain financial advantages obtained by Julia GILLARD as a result of the corrupt payments made under the purported contract, commonly known as the Clinton Foundation "Pay to Play" scheme
- Offenders Julie Eileen GILLARD, then US Secretary of State Hillary Rodham CLINTON and Greg COMBET
- The $88M financial advantage dishonestly obtained by deception
- on 22 September 2014 at
- New York NY, involving
- a MOU between the Australian Government and certain Clinton Foundation entities
- which purported to retrospectively erase the "Clinton HIV/Aids Initiative Inc" (CHAI) as a contracting party with the Australian Government, and replace it with
- the "Clinton Health Access Initiative Inc" (CHAI)
- Offenders - Julie BISHOP and Bill CLINTON
I am also preparing to file a private criminal prosecution of GILLARD in an Australian court along with formal advice to the Commonwealth Director of Public Prosecutions regarding the charges GILLARD will face.
