This is the face of evil. It is the face of a wretched and barbaric practice- female genital mutilation. It is sometimes sugared over with the term female circumcision but make no mistake- it is mutilation.

"FGM refers to all procedures involving partial or total removal of the external female genitalia or other injury to the female genital organs for cultural or other non-medical reasons."

The woman in the picture above is Dr. Jumana Nagarwala.

She has been charged with “female genital mutilation, transportation with intent to engage in criminal sexual activity and making a false statement to a federal officer.”

If the charges are proven true, Nagarwala is then also guilty of violating a physician’s first and foremost responsibility:

Primum non nocere. (First, do no harm.)

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) estimates that number of women and girls in the United States who are “at risk of or may have been subjected” to female genital mutilation/cutting (FGM/C) has increased three-fold over the past decades,” however the crime is rarely investigated or prosecuted, according to the Government Accountability Office.

The government attributes the growing incidents of this brutal practice in the U.S. to increased immigration from countries — largely in Africa and the Middle East — where FGM/C is practiced.

That FGM even occurs in this country is abhorrent. Ayaan Ali Hirsi asserts that it goes on because of identity politics:

“It [FGM] happens and it happens a lot,” Ali said. “People don’t really like talking about the genitals of little girls.”

“This is crazy identity politics in the United States of America now and when girls who are at risk of these horrible and horrifying practices, FGM is just one but there are others, what we see is that people are willing to sacrifice the rights of these little girls at the altar of identity politics. It’s very difficult for people to talk about the cultures and the religions and the harmful practices that are done by minorities and this is happening to minority little girls,” she continued. “There are 500,000 little girls today in the United States who have either undergone or who are at risk of being subjected to this.”

It has to stop. Any physicians trafficking in FGM need to be severely punished and have their medical licenses revoked permanently and thrown out of this country or imprisoned for a very long time. FGM is not part of a civilized society.

The Trump Presidency has turned out to be surprisingly challenging for blogging. First off, we have the media’s raw hatred for President Trump leading them to Dan Rather too many stories (howl first, verify later) – anyone remember the National Guard being mobilized to round up illegals, plans to invade Mexico, the MLK bust being removed from the White House, or just this week, the New England Patriots’ visit to the White House?

So when there’s a story that looks too good or too stupid to believe, I generally wait 48 hours for the truth to come out. Unfortunately, the Radical Left is in such a frenzy to clown themselves that by the time I can write about a topic 2-3 days after the story breaks it’s five or six crises ago and already stale news. So if I’m going to continue blogging I have to stop pretending to stay current (as I tearfully discard a few drafts that I worked on and couldn’t publish), it’s time to get rolling again with an easy topic that never gets old – the idiocy that comes from Camp Clinton! NBC News’ Kendall Kreitman reports, with my accompanying analysis of Hillary’s remarks:

"Clinton’s comments came during her first post-election interview at Tina Brown’s eighth annual Women in the World Summit in New York City. She was questioned by Nicholas Kristof of The New York Times.

She largely cited these factors for her defeat:

– Russia. “A foreign power meddled with our election,” she said, labeling it “an act of aggression.” She called for an independent, bipartisan investigation into the Kremlin’s involvement and said the probe should examine whether there was collusion with the Trump campaign."

It’s almost too easy to point out the fact that we’ve not seen any substantial piece of evidence or any official being willing to go on record – the most substance we’ve gotten is that Susan Rice lied to us about who gave the orders for illegal surveillance against a presidential candidate. The better point to focus is on – “Act of aggression”? After eight years of the administration whose Russia policy was summed up by Reset Buttons, “The 80s called…”, and “Greater flexibility”, is this not an acknowledgement that the previous administration’s Russia policy was a spectacular failure? And how much of this blame falls on the shoulders of the Secretary of State from President Obama’s first term?

Fights broke out the other day in Berkeley California between pro-Trump and anti-Trump protesters.

"At least 21 people were arrested as Trump supporters and opponents clashed Saturday at a park in Berkeley, California, police said."

The bottom line is Trump supporters got tired of being beaten up, tired of one way violence. Video of a woman being punched is being splashed all over the left wing news. The mainstream news was very sympathetic to her.

But there's a lot more to the story.

(Sidebar: look at the crap Google gives you when you search for "woman assaulted at Trump rally" They give you virtually nothing about what you're looking for and everything about what they want you to read.)

Rachel Casey, who was assaulted at a Trump rally, got no such sympathy.

Today North Korea threatened the US with nuclear destruction if the US “at any sign of U.S. aggression.”

North Korea has fired several missiles over the last few months with limited success, but they are becoming more and more successful. The problem is that they have something to put on top of those missiles.

Nuclear weapons.

How did this happen? Didn’t a democrat President whose name rhymes with pill binton sign an agreement or something?

Let’s crank up the Wayback Machine again. It’s 1994. Bill Clinton talks up his nuclear deal with North Korea:

“This agreement is good for the United States, good for our allies, and good for the safety of the entire world,” Clinton said at the time. “It reduces the danger of the threat of nuclear spreading in the region. It’s a crucial step toward drawing North Korea into the global community.”

I guess it depends on the meaning of word “good.”

In fairness, Jimmy Carter deserves as much credit for the deal as does Bill Clinton.

It all failed. NK was cheating right from the start. But hold on. obama will do something. Right?

obama promised North Korea going nuclear would never be accepted:

“To be clear, the United States does not, and never will, accept North Korea as a nuclear state,” Obama said. “Far from achieving its stated national security and economic development goals, North Korea’s provocative and destabilizing actions have instead served to isolate and impoverish its people through its relentless pursuit of nuclear weapons and ballistic missile capabilities.”

And what did he do?

Nothing. He left it for Donald Trump to sort out. Just as he did with Syria. All that was missing was another obama red line for Kim Jung Un.

The chemical weapon attack by the Syrian government of Bashar al-Assad on the rebel-held town Khan Sheikhoun in Idlib Province on April 4 once again underscores what a foreign policy failure President Obama was and what a serial liar Susan Rice is.

On January 16, 2017, Rice, who served as U.N. Ambassador during Obama’s first term and was rewarded for her Benghazi lies with the post of National Security Advisor, where she could be compelled to testify before Congress,

Gave what amounted to an exit interview with NPR. During the interview she crowed about the Obama administration’s success in eliminating the threat of Syrian chemical weapons:

"We were able to find a solution that didn't necessitate the use of force that actually removed the chemical weapons that were known from Syria, in a way that the use of force would never have accomplished. Our aim in contemplating the use of force following the use of chemical weapons in August of 2013 was not to intervene in the civil war, not to become involved in the combat between Assad and the opposition, but to deal with the threat of chemical weapons by virtue of the diplomacy that we did with Russia and with the Security Council. We were able to get the Syrian government to voluntarily and verifiably give up its chemical weapons stockpile."

Tell that, Ms. Rice, to the children of Khan Sheikoun who succumbed to the horrible effects of the sarin gas dropped on them by Syrian forces with the support of their Russian allies. You and your boss colluded with the Russians to keep Assad in power and give Russia a free hand in Syria. Your claim of having removed the threat of Syrian chemical weapons was a lie, as phony as the statement President Obama made after the tragedy of Aleppo. As CNBC reported the statement President Obama made as he washed his hands of all guilt and responsibility:

Last night Donald Trump ordered an attack on Syria. In less than 100 days, Trump has taken more action against Assad than obama did in eight years. The attack was appropriate, measured and proportional. It sent a message.

To Assad and to North Korea.

Trump did not have to set a red line and then walk away from it.

It seems the evidence was slam dunk. I watched retired Four Star general Jack Keane say we had military personnel on the ground who witnessed the aircraft drop the bomb and that we have radar tracking that traced the aircraft departure from and return to this targeted airfield. This is largely confirmed here.

"Syrian fixed-wing aircraft dropped chemical weapons on civilians in Idlib earlier this week, two U.S. military officials told NBC News.

The U.S. military saw the aircraft on a radar and watched them drop the bombs, the officials said. The radar soon picked up the flashes and booms in the rebel-held area of Syria."

It remains intriguing that Syria was able to mount a chemical weapon attack as both John Kerry and barack obama assured us that all chemical weapons had been removed from Syria.

One wonders where the chemical agents originated. It was suggested that Saddam moved his WMD’s to Syria– by Obama DNI James Clapper:

"WASHINGTON — The director of a top U.S. spy agency said Tuesday that he believes that material from Iraq’s illicit weapons program had been transported into Syria and perhaps other countries as part of an effort by the Iraqis to disperse and destroy evidence immediately before the recent war."

The Trump administration’s apparent acceptance of the Syrian regime may well have been another Trump ruse to inspire Assad to commit an act which necessitated a response.

Susan Rice is a liar. We need to establish that as the baseline. She apparently unmasks the names of Americans caught up in surveillance matters, especially if their names rhyme with “bump.”

Next, Andrew McCarthy (who knows a few things about this)

"The thing to bear in mind is that the White House does not do investigations. Not criminal investigations, not intelligence investigations. Remember that."


"In general, it is the FBI that conducts investigations that bear on American citizens suspected of committing crimes or of acting as agents of foreign powers. In the matter of alleged Russian meddling, the investigative camp also includes the CIA and the NSA. All three agencies conducted a probe and issued a joint report in January. That was after Obama, despite having previously acknowledged that the Russian activity was inconsequential, suddenly made a great show of ordering an inquiry and issuing sanctions."

So why would Rice need to unmask Americans identities if the other agencies did not? Let’s go to Rice:

"Let me explain how this works. I was the National Security Advisor. My job is to protect the American people and the security of our country. That’s the same as the Secretary of State, the Secretary of Defense, the CIA director. And every morning, to enable us to do that, we received from the intelligence community a compilation of intelligence reports that the IC, the intelligence community, has selected for us on a daily basis to give us the best information as to what’s going on around the world."

She’s a political appointee. A dishonest one at that. Someone needs to explain how her judgment is more finely honed than the NSA or the CIA. Neither agency found it necessary to unmask Trump, his family and his aides.

But she did. And it had nothing to do with Russia. So what was the justification? Apparently she thinks Trump is going to bomb America:

"But let’s say there was a conversation between two foreigners about a conversation they were having with an American, who was proposing to sell to them high-tech bomb making equipment. Now, if that came to me as National Security Advisor, it would matter enormously. Is this some kook sitting in his living room communicating via the internet, offering to sell something he doesn’t have? Or is it a serious person or company or entity with the ability to provide that technology perhaps to an adversary? That would be an example of a case where knowing who the U.S. person was, was necessary to assess the information.

So when that occurred, what I would do, or what any official would do, is to ask their briefer whether the intelligence committee would go through its process — and there’s a long-standing, established process — to decide whether that information as to who the identity of the U.S. person was could be provided to me. So they’d take that question back, they’d put it through a process, and the intelligence community made the determination as to whether or not the identity of that American individual could be provided to me."

She is implying that Trump wanted to bomb the US or sell bomb technology to a foreign entity.

Heady stuff. Then she states:

"We’d only do it to protect the American people, to do our jobs in the national security realm. That’s the only reason."

What was it about Trump that threatened national security? From what was she protecting the American people? What did she know that the CIA and NSA did not? Inquiring minds want to know.

And if all this was true, why did she lie about it?

What exactly was the threat?

We now know that Susan Rice is the person who asked that Trump, his family and campaign aides be unmasked. Despite the pleadings to the contrary, she knows she’s done something very wrong. If not, she wouldn’t have lied straight out about it.

Rice has a well established reputation for being a liar.

Predictably, the media has leaped to her defense. Then again, while the media has been fixated on Trump (and we will soon see why) it has largely ignored that leaking of the Flynn transcript is a violation of the Espionage Act. Intelligence officials have said that Flynn is not guilty of any criminal wrongdoing.

"A current U.S. intelligence official tells NPR’s Mary Louise Kelly that there is no evidence of criminal wrongdoing in the transcripts of former national security adviser Michael Flynn’s conversations with Russian Ambassador Sergey Kislyak, although the official noted that doesn’t rule out the possibility of illegal actions.

The official also says that there are recordings as well as transcripts of the calls, and that the transcripts don’t suggest Flynn was acting under orders in his conversations."

If he did nothing wrong, why was he unmasked and then why was the transcript leaked?

Rice’s interest in Trump seems to have begun in July and then peaked after the election.

Without any question it is an orchestrated plan to destroy the Trump Presidency. Rice not only ordered unmasking, but she also demanded “detailed spread sheets” on Trump phone calls.

But it’s a little farther down in the story that the nugget emerges:

"Also on Monday, Fox News and Bloomberg News, citing multiple sources reported that Rice had requested the intelligence information that was produced in a highly organized operation. Fox said the unmasked names of Trump aides were given to officials at the National Security Council (NSC), the Department of Defense, James Clapper, President Obama’s Director of National Intelligence, and John Brennan, Obama’s CIA Director.

Joining Rice in the alleged White House operations was her deputy Ben Rhodes, according to Fox."

There it is. Ben Rhodes.

To refresh your memory, Ben Rhodes is the fiction writer with “no real-world experience” who somehow became a Deputy National Security Adviser. Ben Rhodes is also the brother of CBS News President David Rhodes, which explains a lot of the media coverage. I’ve written about Rhodes before. Rhodes is also the mastermind of the misleading “It was the video” Benghazi talking points.

But there’s more.

Adam Housley this morning reported that the NSA had collected the communications of Donald Trump, his family and his staff for more than a year prior to his inauguration and that it had nothing to do with national security. This was done solely for political purposes.

In the absence of some national security threat the names of Americans are not to be unmasked (That this happened is perhaps not surprising coming from an administration which weaponized the IRS to suppress political opposition).

Housley: "these names of Americans who had done nothing wrong was disseminated to all of the NSC, some at DoD, Clapper, Brennan, basically the people at the top, they also say, I'm told, that Rice knew possibly about this as well..."

And "None of this had anything to do with national security."

It is unprecedented.
