Obama Pentagon’s Coverup of ‘Bacha Bazi’ Child Rape by Afghan Soldiers

Under Obama, the Pentagon attempted to block an independent report on child sex abuse and rape of young boys among Afghan soldiers and police.  Despite 93 congressmen requesting this document in 2015, it is still classified by the Pentagon.  A high-level Afghan ​police official said that the practice of “bacha bazi”, which is dressing young boys like women and making them dance and perform sex acts, no longer exists.  However, the practice is actually growing, and local officials do nothing about it.  Two years ago, while Obama was President, reports surfaced about US Marines being ordered to ignore child abuse by Afghan police officers, but the reports were marked classified by the Pentagon to prevent public knowledge of them. -GEG

If the Democrats had any sense left that they were morally superior to Republicans, this report is sure to squash what remains of it.

 According to reports, the Obama Pentagon attempted to block an independent report on child sex among Afghan Forces. 

Washington Post reports:

The Pentagon tried to block an independent assessment of child sex abuse crimes committed by Afghan soldiers and police, instead insisting on the creation of its own report offering a far less authoritative review of human rights violations perpetrated by U.S. allies, according to an aide to Sen. Patrick Leahy (D-Vt.). […]

But the results of SIGAR’s unreleased inquiry, which was requested by 93 members of Congress in 2015, remains classified at the Pentagon’s direction, raising questions about the military’s transparency and the extent to which it is complying with laws meant to curb such abuse.

The Pentagon responded with “resistance” when Congress tapped SIGAR to conduct the probe, said Tim Rieser, an aide to Leahy, vice chairman of the Senate Appropriations Committee whose namesake legislation, known as the Leahy Law, requires the U.S. military to halt assistance to foreign military units found to have committed gross human rights violations.

Instead, senior Pentagon officials argued that SIGAR, which since 2009 has produced dozens of reports exposing corruption within the Afghan government and incompetence among Afghan security forces, lacked the jurisdiction for this particular task, Rieser said.

“Afghan security personnel have been known to recruit young boys as servants, sometimes to use for sex. There is a broader practice in Afghan society to dress some boys as women and have them dance at gatherings. Known as bacha bazi, it was banned under the Taliban but revived after the U.S. invasion in 2001,” reports Alex Horton.

The Pentagon reportedly reviewed 16 allegations between 2010 to 2016. Horton says this number is unlikely to be accurate because of irregularities in reporting procedures and “an overall lack of unified guidance on reporting and record keeping relating to child sexual abuse.”

 Two years ago, reports surfaced about U.S. Marines being ordered to ignore child abuse by Afghan police officers.

Decline in ​NFL Popularity ​Expected to Cost TV Networks $500​-Million this Season

P​rotests against the National Anthem by NFL players have contributed to the organization’s loss of one-million viewers compared to 2016.  According to OKTC’s Clay Travis, the four networks that carry the NFL ​(CBS, ESPN, Fox,​ and NBC)​ are on pace to lose $500-million this season compared to last year due to the ratings slide. The top reason for the loss is “cord-cutting” which is cancelling subscriptions to multi-channel television services on cable. -GEG​

Amid the growing cord-cutting trend and continued backlash from the divisive national anthem protests, the NFL has lost around 1 million viewers since 2016 and the ratings have declined by over 15% since 2015. So how much is the loss in viewership costing the league and its television partners?

Outkick the Coverage crunched the numbers, and they aren’t pretty. According to OKTC’s Clay Travis, the four networks that carry the NFL — CBS, ESPN, Fox and NBC — are on pace to lose $500 million this season compared to last year due to the ratings slide.

As The Daily Wire reported last week, the NFL lost around 1 million viewers from 2016 alone, down from 15.9 million viewers on average to 14.9 million, an over 6% decline. From the 2015 to the 2016 season, the NFL’s viewership dropped a dramatic 9% during the regular season and 6% during the playoffs from the previous year.

In an analysis published in late October, Forbes described the rather grim trend the NFL is facing on the ratings front. “The league is now down about three million viewers per game from 2013 and 2014,” Forbes reports. “When the specific teams appearing, the scope of the telecast and the week of the season are taken into account, the decline is even more dramatic: more than four million viewers, or in excess of 20%.”

Israeli Official Says​ Few American​ Jews Fight for ​Their Country

Israel: Deputy Foreign Minister Tzipi Hotovely, during a recent TV interview, complained that American Jews do not sufficiently support the pro-war policies of Israel because they don’t know what it is like to be attacked by their enemies.  She referred to American Jews as “people that never send their children to fight for their country.  Most of the Jews don’t have children serving as soldiers, going to the Marines, going to Afghanistan, or to Iraq. Most of them are having quite convenient lives…” Hotovely was reprimanded for this statement by Prime Minister ​Netanyahu and forced to apologize for it – not because it is untrue but because it is objectionable. Gilad Atzmon, an anti-war activist who was born in Israel, says that Jews being reluctant to fight American wars does not fit well with the fact that Americans have been fighting Israeli wars for may years. -GEG​

(LONDON) – Israel’s deputy foreign minister Tzipi Hotovely attacked U.S. Jewry in an interview with i24 News on Wednesday.

Hotovely referred to American Jews as “people that never send their children to fight for their country, most of the Jews don’t have children serving as soldiers, going to the Marines, going to Afghanistan, or to Iraq. Most of them are having quite convenient lives…” (watch VIDEO below)

PM Netanyahu was very quick to condemn his deputy minister. This is understandable, after all Jews being reluctant to fight American wars doesn’t fit nicely with the embarrassing fact that America has been fighting Israeli wars for a while.

The pro-war Neocon school is largely a Zionist gathering and the Jewish American Lobby has been pushing for the escalation of immoral interventionist conflicts in Iraq, Syria, Libya and Iran.

Haaretz writes that “the U.S. military stopped recording the religion of recruits decades ago, but until then Jews served in slightly greater proportion than their percentage in the general population.”

I thought it would be fascinating to find out what the current figures are. As such, it seems Haaretz didn’t do its homework. Apparently, there is a record available of faiths within the USA military.

It reveals that out of the 1,300,000 American soldiers, only 4,515 are Jewish. Jews make only 0.3% of the American military.

Former Secret Service Agent Dan Bongino Threatens to Expose Clinton Crimes

Dan Bongino, a former Secret Service agent and Fox News host, got into a Twitter feud with Nick Merrill, and he said that Hillary Clinton is fighting for relevance to maintain her political clout in order to keep her crimes buried.  Bongino threatened to spill the beans on Bill Clinton’s 26 trips to ‘Orgy Island’ with convicted pedophile Jeffrey Epstein.  This video explores what Bongino may be able to prove. If so, his life may be in peril because the Clinton body count reportedly includes 12 former bodyguards who died during or after their service with the Clintons. -GEG​




Former Marine Colonel Runs Write-In Campaign to Split and Steal Votes from Roy Moore

Alabama: Retired Marine Colonel, Lee Busby, plans to run as a write-in candidate in an attempt to try and stop Judge Roy Moore from reaching the United States Senate.  Roy Moore has been accused of sexual misconduct with young girls 40 years ago.  Busby served in the Marine Corps for 31 years and served as an aide to White House Chief of Staff John Kelley during his last tour of duty.  He also is known for his strong opposition to President Trump.  Bubsy has no campaign website or any serious campaign ground-game but plans to rely on social media.  He will emphasize his experience as a military leader, and his background as an investment banker, defense contractor, and entrepreneur.  It is believed that his backers are anxious, not to get him elected, but to draw away enough votes to prevent Moore’s election. -GEG

Lee Busby, a retired Marine colonel and former aide to White House Chief of Staff John Kelly, announced on Monday that he will launch a last-minute write-in campaign against Republican nominee Alabama Judge Roy Moore and Democrat Doug Jones.

Lee Busby argued that the allegations of sexual misconduct against Roy Moore created an opening for an establishment, centrist candidate to launch a third-party run for the December 12 Alabama Senate race.

Busby said, “I think you can flip this thing. If this were a military operation, the left flank and the right flank are heavily guarded. I think that gives you an opportunity to run straight up the middle.”

Busby’s write-in campaign mirrors Evan McMullin’s third party bid in the 2016 presidential election. McMullin, nicknamed “McMuffin” by Trump supporters, admitted during the presidential election that if he could not stop Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump from being elected president, he would be “happy” just stopping Trump from becoming the 45th president.

 McMullin, a former Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) operations officer and Goldman Sachs employee, announced a “Never-Trump” candidacy to upset the election in favor of Hillary Clinton by appealing to Mormon voters in Utah, Arizona, and Idaho. His establishment insurgency failed to win any electoral votes and failed to win Utah, which features a strong Mormon voting base.

Bubsy has no campaign website or any serious campaign ground-game. The former aide to John Kelly hopes to rely on social media to spread the word about his campaign. Identifying himself as an Independent candidate, Bubsy, who retired from the Marine Corps in 2013, intends to emphasize his experience as a military leader, as well as his background as an investment banker, defense contractor, and entrepreneur.

The third-party candidate contends that both Moore and Jones should not serve in the U.S. Senate.

“I just don’t believe that either one of them are qualified to be in the U.S. Senate,” Busby argued.

He cites the sexual allegations against Moore as having “created enough distaste in my mind” to rule out support for the Republican nominee. He lists Democrat candidate Jones’ extreme abortion positions as disqualifying for Alabama voters.

However, Busby does admit to attending a fundraiser for Jones, though he denies ever donating to the Democrat candidate.

A Raycom News Network survey found that only three percent of Alabamians plan to vote for a write-in candidate for the Alabama Senate race.

A recent poll revealed that Roy Moore has a seven-point lead over Jones.
