Political Terrorism – A Democratic Tradition

by Paul R. Hollrah –

On Monday, October 22, 2018, news reports indicated that an explosive device had been found in the mail box of radical Democratic “moneybags” and World War II Nazi “errand boy,” billionaire George Soros, at his estate in Westchester County, New York.  Two days later, on October 24, 2018, six additional IEDs were found in the U.S. mail, all addressed to leading Democrat politicians.  By week’s end a total of 15 explosive devices were found, all of them sent to leading Democrats and to radical billionaire contributors.

All of the packages bore the return address of ousted DNC chairwoman, Debbie Wasserman Schultz (D-FL).  But then, in a cruel twist of fate, when the explosive device intended for former Attorney General Eric Holder was found to be undeliverable, the U.S. Postal Service dutifully returned the IED to the mailbox of Congresswoman Schultz.

But what is most peculiar about the fifteen explosive devices is that none of the bombs exploded when unwrapped… leading more than one ordnance expert to suggest that perhaps the bomb-maker did not intend for any of the devices to explode.  Given the numerous public attacks by Democrats against Republicans since the 2016 General Election, and in light of the vicious attacks on Justice Brett Kavanaugh, the creation of a dramatic new political scandal, pointing to Republicans as the likely perpetrators, could only serve to divert public attention right up to the 2018 mid-term elections.

We are told that the bomb-maker, 56-year-old Cesar Sayoc, was, until 2016, a registered Democrat.  If Democrats could identify and groom an attractive young black man to be president of the United States over a period of four decades, or more, is it unreasonable to suspect that Sayoc could also be a trained and programmed terror asset of the Democratic Party?

For most Americans, those who are apolitical but patriotic observers of the political scene, the recent spate of harassment and violent intimidation suffered by Republicans at the hands of malicious Democrat activists, is something entirely new in our political process.  But nothing could be further from the truth.  Political violence and intimidation are a Democratic tradition… a behavioral trait passed from generation to generation in their DNA.

Between 1776 and the close of the Civil War in 1865, those who perpetuated the inhumanity of human slavery were, almost without exception, members of the Democrat Party.  Following the war, when the Republican Party was founded by those wishing to abolish slavery, Democrats searched for ways to maintain political and economic control over the freed slaves.  Their answer to that dilemma was the creation of paramilitary auxiliaries such as the Ku Klux Klan and other terror groups, whose task it was to enforce the Black Codes and Jim Crow laws enacted by Democrat-controlled legislatures.

During their near century-long reign of terror, the Klan murdered more than 5,000 innocent people… some 80% of them blacks and more than 20% whites, nearly all Republicans.  One of the most gruesome Democratic atrocities occurred in Valdosta, Georgia, on May 19, 1918.  On that day, a black woman named Mary Turner announced that she would see to it that the white men who had lynched her husband would be prosecuted.  Turner, who was eight months pregnant at the time, was dragged from her home, tortured, hanged by her feet, and set on fire.  And while she was still alive, dangling from the rope, they slashed open her abdomen.  Her unborn child spilled out onto the ground where they crushed the baby’s skull with the heel of a boot.  Mary Turner thought, mistakenly, that the rule of law was on her side.  Instead, she became a threat to the white Democrats who had lynched her husband and she paid for it with her life and that of her unborn child.

Watching news reports of recent acts of political violence, is there any doubt that the members of Antifa and the radical leftists who attacked the U.S. Senate and the Supreme Court during the Kavanaugh confirmation hearings would conduct themselves in exactly the same manner if they could get their hands on Donald Trump or Brett Kavanaugh?

Since the founding of our constitutional republic, those on the political left have waged a never-ending campaign to chip away at the founding principles of the U.S. Constitution.  What many Americans fail to recognize is that the General Election of 2016 represented nothing less than a last chance to save our great country from becoming a carbon copy of Cuba or Venezuela.  If Democrats had won the presidency in 2016, that election could easily have been our last free election and the U.S. Supreme Court, with two additional liberal justices, would become a mere tool of the radical left; it was just that crucial.  Clinton’s loss to Donald Trump, along with the election of GOP majorities in both houses of Congress, represents nothing less than the ultimate defeat of leftist ideology after more than 240 years of their best efforts to the contrary.

When it became evident in early 2016 that Donald Trump could actually be elected in the November General Election, liberals and Democrats went into panic mode, setting in motion a deep state effort to implicate Trump in Russian efforts to hack the computers of the Clinton campaign; its chairman, John Podesta; and the Democratic National Committee.  They opened the Democratic “play book” to Chapter One, which contains their favorite and most widely used political ploy.  Chapter One tells them that, whatever they might do that is illegal, immoral, or unethical, it is critically important that they immediately charge Republicans with doing the same thing.  And since the Clintons were heavily involved in “collusion” with Russian operatives, scheming to give Russia control of 20% of America’s in situ uranium resources in exchange for a 9-figure contribution to the Clinton Foundation and a $500,000 honorarium for a Bill Clinton speech in Moscow, it was critically important that they find a way to tie Trump to the Russians.

Clinton campaign operatives were instructed to meet and establish relationships with Trump campaign figures.  And when a 31-year-old Trump volunteer named George Papadopoulos was approached by a Maltese “diplomat,” Joseph Mifsud, in Italy, in March 2016, Mifsud apparently saw an opportunity to ingratiate himself with the Trump campaign and/or the Clinton campaign.  Then, in late April 2016, shortly after Mifsud returned from a trip to Russia, the two met again in London.  It was apparently at that meeting that Mifsud advised Papadopoulos that the Russians had “dirt” on Hillary Clinton.  And since Papadopoulos’ primary interest in joining the Trump campaign was to promote a meeting between Trump and Vladimir Putin, Papadopoulos saw this as a potential entrée to Trump’s inner circle of advisors.

Papadopoulos has subsequently pleaded guilty to lying to the FBI and has been sentenced to a 14-day jail term.  Mifsud has been named as a defendant in a lawsuit filed by the Democrat National Committee and his current whereabouts is unknown.  Some news reports suggest that he is no longer alive and that he may have suffered the same fate as a former DNC employee, Seth Rich, who has been suggested as the DNC insider who leaked DNC emails to Wikileaks, and who was shot to death at on Sunday, July 10, 2016, near his home on Capitol Hill.

DC Metropolitan police have reported that Rich died of two gunshots to the back, most likely the result of an attempted robbery.  However, that conclusion is contradicted by the fact that none of Rich’s personal possessions… his wallet, credit cards, wristwatch, or cell phone… were taken.

The official storyline disseminated by Democrats and by their allies in the mainstream media was that it was the Russians who hacked the Democrats’ computers.  However, it flew in the face of a December 12, 2016 finding by a group of longtime intelligence professionals called Veteran Intelligence Professionals for Sanity (VIPS), comprised of some of the country’s leading information technology experts, from both public and private sectors organizations.

According to VIPS, “We have gone through the various claims about hacking.  For us, it is child’s play to dismiss them.”  What they found was that the email disclosures in question were the result of a leak to Wikileaks, not a foreign or domestic hack.  They found that, on the evening of July 5, 2016, 1,976 megabytes of data were downloaded from the DNC server.  The download took just 87 seconds, yielding a transfer rate of 22.7 megabytes per second.

According to the VIPS analysis, no Internet service provider available in mid-2016, was capable of downloading data at that speed.  To the contrary, VIPS analysts reported that the highest average ISP speeds of first-half 2016 were achieved by Xfinity and Cox Communications, averaging 15.6 mbps and 14.7 mbps, respectively, leading to one indisputable conclusion: since transfer rates in the neighborhood of 22-23 mbps were unattainable by a hacker anywhere on Earth, the theft of data from the DNC and Podesta computers was an inside job, downloaded to a USB-2 flash device, known as a “thumb drive.”

Although it cannot be said with absolute certainty that Seth Rich was the DNC insider who downloaded the DNC computer data to a thumb drive and leaked it to Wikileaks, interviews with Julian Assange on Dutch TV in August 2016, and with Assange’s mother, Christine, in August 2018, appear to suggest that Rich was the source of the DNC/Hillary campaign leaks.

What is a certainty is that the appointment of a special prosecutor… to investigate the Clinton email scandals, the pay-to-play performance of Hillary Clinton as Secretary of State, the Clintons’ collusion with Russia in the Uranium One scheme, and the as-yet unexplained fate of Robert Mifsud and Seth Rich… is of critical importance.

At present, the one man who stands in the way of truth and justice in these matters is Attorney General Jeff Sessions.  If President Trump cannot rely on his attorney general to enforce the rule of law in the face of such widespread Democratic corruption, then it is incumbent upon the president to relieve Sessions and to appoint an attorney general who will live up to his oath of office.  Conservatives and Republicans have far too much time and effort invested to allow these criminal acts to go unpunished. | October 22, 2018
