NYC Chinatown Donorgate Under-Covered

To date, here’s how major newspapers have covered the NYC Chinatown Donorgate story:

October 19: The Los Angeles Times reported that the Clinton campaign received $380,000 from poor Chinese living in largely ethnic New York City neighborhoods—one is heavily populated by “recent immigrants from Fujian Province.” One-third of 150 donors could not be located; many gave false addresses. Other donors found and interviewed gave varying motives for their contributions. “Many said they gave to Clinton because they were instructed to do so by local association leaders.” Some cited an interest in immigration issues. One donor was proud to have had his picture taken with Mrs. Clinton—he sent it home to China.

Domestic Terrorism… California arson fires easier than hijacking planes

image Officials: Arson Behind Santiago Fire

CA Fires Exclusive—Fed Source: Look to al Qaeda and the Islamic enemy in the U.S.

Law enforcement officials will agree that arson is the most difficult of crimes to “prove,” especially in terms of identifying the perpetrator(s). The fires this week in Southern California have cost more than $1 billion in lost property and displaced more than a million people, the greatest evacuation California has ever seen. The origin of the massive Santiago Canyon Fire alone has caused an estimated $10 million in damage, burning about 20,000 acres so far and damaging or destroying about 30 structures. That cause of that fire has been officially declared arson, according to federal officials, who identified two separate “points of origin.” Currently, the FBI is involved in the primary investigation of the fires, including forensic collection and analysis and scene management.

A new threat to the war against terror

imageIslamabad-Pakistan: General Pervez Musharraf is planning again to attack the Chief Justice of Pakistan, Judge Iftikhar Muhammad Chaudhry, with the active support of Benazir Bhutto and with the covert support of the USA. High level meetings have been going on in Islamabad for the last two days to chalk out a new strategy against Justice Iftikhar Muhammad Chaudhry, who is fast becoming a real threat to the fragile Musharraf-Benazir agreement, by puncturing the highly publicized presidential ordinance through which PPP leadership got amnesty from corruption cases. A top government official claims that the chief justice is also becoming a threat against the war on terror because he provided relief to many pro-al Qaeda and pro-Taliban elements who were in the custody of intelligence agencies without any formal charges.

The United States is Not Engaged in the War of Ideas

The United States and governments of the West must use every means available to combat Islamofascist aggression and expansion, both here in the West and in the Middle East. One of the most critical aspects in the war against Islamofascism is the war of ideas.
