Broward Elections Supervisor, Brenda Snipes to Testify in Voter List Trial

Finally, the culmination of citizen activists investigative research, articles and persistence exposing voter fraud in Florida has been addressed. This writer has exposed voter fraud since the 2012 election cycle. I have written a series of pertinent in-depth thoroughly researched articles about the citizen’s disenfranchisement in Broward County, Florida exposing Brenda Snipes complicit behavior in voter fraud. Not only have conservative, Republican candidates suffered from the ramifications of voter fraud, Democrat primary candidates have also been victims. Governor Rick Scott has been alerted of the inconsistencies, double voting, and the lack of voter roll clean-up. Perhaps this court case will have some legs and Governor Scott will cooperate with President Trump’s Excellent Voter Fraud Team in Florida.

July 27,2017

Broward Supervisor of Elections Brenda Snipes will testify in federal court in Miami on Monday about allegations the county has a bloated voter list because her office isn’t doing enough to purge ineligible voters.

Snipes will be defending her office against a suit brought by the American Civil Rights Union, a conservative Virginia-based group that has been challenging voter registration lists nationwide. The nonprofit organization says it wants to make sure voter lists accurately reflect only eligible voters to reduce the potential for voter fraud.

The ACRU is asking U.S. District Judge Beth Bloom to order the county to step up its efforts to remove ineligible voters from the rolls, including non-citizens, dead people, felons and those who have moved or are mentally incapacitated. Critics fear the more aggressive approach the ACRU is advocating could knock many eligible voters off the rolls as well.

On Thursday, Wynmoor Village resident Richard Gabbay testified that he alerted the elections office in October 2015 to more than 600 people registered to vote in his Coconut Creek community who either died or no longer lived there, but he was not satisfied with the office’s response. He first noticed many listed voters had moved when he took part in a Republican get-out-the-vote effort in 2012 and he got a list of his precinct’s voters from the state in 2015.
“In the process, I noticed persons who had duplicate registrations and people I knew who had passed away,” Gabbay testified. Elections officials said while it may have seemed the office wasn’t moving quickly, it has requirements to meet before it can remove people from the list. For instance, one of the people Gabbay reported as dead turned out to still be alive.

In March 2016, Snipes sent Gabbay a report showing 176 of the people he identified were removed from the voter list after mail sent to them was returned undeliverable. The office also removed four who moved out of the county, 13 who had died and three duplicate registrations. The largest chunk, 407, were determined to be inactive voters and were scheduled to be removed from the lists starting in May 2016.

Bloom also heard testimony from Tampa resident Gregg Prentice, who has done extensive research of the state’s voting rolls. He submitted documents to Snipes in 2013 showing 1,200 county voters were using UPS offices as their voting addresses. He said it was months before he heard from the elections office.

What Prentice did notice was that the voter addresses for most of the names he had submitted started changing on updated lists to having the Supervisor of Elections office as their address. On cross examination, Prentice conceded those voters could have been eligible ones, possibly including homeless people, boat dwellers, overseas military personnel with no permanent county address or U.S. citizens from the county living abroad.

Broward County isn’t the only county to come under scrutiny. The ACRU is being represented by J. Christian Adams, who currently heads another conservative organization, the Public Interest Legal Foundation.

In 2015, the foundation sent letters to elected officials in 141 counties in 21 states threatening lawsuits if those counties didn’t step up efforts to remove ineligible voters from their voter rolls. The Broward lawsuit accused it of having voter rolls that amounted to 103 percent of eligible voting-age residents in the county.

Adams previously was with the ACRU and Judicial Watch, another conservative group that has sent letters to 11 states this year — including Florida — threatening federal lawsuits if they don’t get counties to clean up their voter rolls. The ACRU has also filed suits in Texas, Mississippi and Pennsylvania.

The question Bloom must decide is how large an effort local elected officials are required to make to ensure their voter rolls are up to date.

Snipes insists her office has a robust program of cleaning up its lists.

The ACRU says the county could be doing even more, making use of state driver’s license information to identify people who have moved or are non-citizens, and reviewing jury recusal forms that individuals fill out when they claim they cannot sit on a jury because they are not a citizen or they are a convicted felon whose voting rights haven’t been restored.

ACRU chairman Susan Carleson testified Thursday she could not remember who provided her with initial numbers her group used to go after Broward’s election office.

“I got the information from a source. I don’t know where it came from,” Carleson said.

Snipes’ attorney, Burnadette Norris-Weeks, came under fire after an office procedures manual she provided to the ACRU on Wednesday turned out to be missing a section.

Adams asked that the elections office be sanctioned and Bloom was clearly upset, but she deferred any decision on taking punitive action against the office.

Norris-Weeks said it was an honest mistake created by recent chaos in the elections office — which shut down its offices in the county governmental center in Fort Lauderdale last week while dealing with flooding there. The downtown staff has been temporarily moved to the elections office warehouse in Lauderhill while crews deal with the water problem and concrete-eating termites that also were found, Snipes said.

The manual is a big deal because the ACRU didn’t know it existed and its expert witness had testified the lack of written procedures was a significant issue. Norris-Weeks said she just learned of the manual over the weekend.

Sharon Flemming, who is in charge of removing names from the voter lists, noticed the missing section Thursday morning before she was to answer ACRU attorney questions about the manual. It turns out Flemming’s complete manual was sealed off in the downtown offices and officials delivered a copy from the warehouse that was missing the section., 954-356-4556 or Twitter @lbarszewski

Florida Voter Polls at Risk: Broward County Supervisor of Elections Put on Notice

August 5, 2016/in Elections, Must Read, Policy, Politics, Waste, Fraud and Abuse /by Ruth Roman
PART I: Investigative Report — Voter Fraud in Florida

Broward County Supervisor of Elections, Dr. Brenda C. Snipes has adopted a logo which reads: “Vote with confidence;” unfortunately, if past elections under her tutelage are an indicator, we are in for an array of disenfranchisement tactics aimed to skew the electoral process in a fraudulent and partisan fashion. In subsequent articles, these practices will be elaborated on with the fervent expectation that voter awareness will not only condemn the contemplation of such activity, but will rise to prevent it.

Voter integrity and potential voter fraud has been a major topic of concern for many watchdog groups in Florida for quite some time. In my investigative Report in November of 2012, after the last presidential election, I interviewed a whistleblower from Broward County Supervisor of Elections Office of Brenda C. Snipes, who revealed to me that many election laws were broken when:

Election officials were assisting voters who were not handicapped and were using special unauthorized forms to do this
There were obvious irregularities in the absentee ballots
There was a lack of scanning machines during the voting process, despite the fact that there were plenty in storage that could have been used.

Dr. Snipes duties and obligations as an elected official, are to uphold voter integrity in a non-partisan fashion, ensuring that no voter is disenfranchised. This investigative report will reveal that not only have voter records not been maintained properly, Brenda Snipes has not been in compliance with the law.

On June 27, 2016, a lawsuit was filed against Brenda Snipes, Supervisor of Elections, after her refusal to discuss a resolution with the American Civil Rights Union in regard to its claim of potential violations of federal election law in Broward County, Florida.

In this case, Andrea Bellitto and the American Civil Rights Union vs. Brenda Snipes, Supervisor of Elections, allegations put forth reveal that:

Snipes has been negligent in maintaining accurate voter rolls and removing names of ineligible voters from the official list of voters by reason of death or change of residence of the registrant as pursuant to federal election law.

Over the past several election cycles the voter rolls maintained by Dr. Snipes have either more total registrants than eligible voting citizens or an implausibly high number
Approximately 106% of the citizens of voting age were registered to vote and cast a ballot in Broward County. Snipes in this case, received information regarding over 200 registered voters in one community in Coconut Creek who have either died or who no longer reside in the community.
The National Voters Right Act 1965 requires that Dr. Snipes shall complete, not later than 90 days prior to the date of a primary or general election for federal office, any program that systematically removes the name of ineligible voters from that official lists of eligible voters.
My investigation reveals that Dr. Snipes’ has received citizen complaints to clean up the voter rolls dating back to October of 2015, also followed by a November 2015 Public Records request. However, there has been no resolution to them.

Surprisingly, another watchdog organization, True The Vote, in its 16 Florida County investigation, discovered at least 36,000 voter registrations that had serious problems. Their investigation uncovered over 15,400 sets of duplicated voter registrations, 221 potential cases of double voting, 2,400 cases of voters over the age of 105 displaying recent periods of inactivity, 185 cases of illegally claimed residential addresses located at commercial mailbox stores, 500+ cases of incomplete voter registrations, 2,500+ cases of incomplete voter registrations entered into the Florida voter roll that were missing legal names.

Dr. Snipes, S.O.E., holds a Constitutional Office in the State of Florida and has taken an oath to: “conduct successful elections in compliance with the law to ensure that every eligible voter can exercise the right to vote, while providing a non-partisan, stable and positive environment built upon respect, growth, creativity and freethinking.” It is a felony to willfully submit any false voter registration information, in accordance with F.S.104.011(2).

No voter in the State of Florida should be disenfranchised and Ms. Snipes has a responsibility to her constituents to abide by the law. Perhaps, the Broward County voter rolls will be cleaned up, as have been in other state counties. However, time is of the essence, as we have a critical presidential election in November; the time for action is now. We must anticipate and challenge any protocol or activity that enables fraud or partisanship behavior and hold Dr. Snipes and her staff accountable.

I remember when JEB Bush appointed Dr. Snipes to the Supervisor of Election post. As a newly retired Area Superintendent, I was confident that she would do a good job. And she pulled that department out of the ditch which was left in shambles by Oliphant. By the findings of the investigators reveals a lack of attention to details. That comes from the top down. Now, far be it for me to accuse her of the “D” word. Would it be enough to say “too many senior moments”? I would hesitate to say she is guilty of purposely sabotaging the voting process. This is a demanding second career, perhaps she should retire before it gets ugly. However, she has signed up for re-election and has high name recognition. It would be smarter to go quietly into the night. Just an aside, I hope she does retire. We need more volunteers at Stranahan House!!

Shared in comments by Lisa. YESTERDAY, HILLARY CLINTON MET BEHIND CLOSED DOORS WITH BRENDA SNIPES, SUPERVISER OF ELECTIONS IN BROWARD COUNTY FLORIDA. This is unheard of for a presidential candidate to meet with a Supervisor of Elections in a key county! Clinton’s meeting appears to be an attempt to rig the election. She has to win Broward County in order to win Florida. Brenda Snipe, Supervisor or Elections in Broward Country, also was responsible for “making a mistake” that left Amendment 2 Medical Marijuana Law off the ballot in Broward County. This goes beyond belief and the media is not touching it. And wouldn’t you know over 91,000 votes have been cast for the dems in Broward already in just 5 days ! That’s the biggest turnout in the state! Can you say crooked????

I can tell you for a fact. I have family members who moved from Florida 4 years ago and have registered to vote and have already voted in other States. All of them can go on line and request an absentee ballot. Broward County still shows them as Active voters! Brenda Snipe’s needs to be investigated for failure to do her job. I’ve requested an absentee ballot three times and have yet to receive one. Looks like I won’t be able to vote and I’m our of town and must absentee vote.

The Brenda Snipes/ Tallahassee Disenfranchisement of Florida Voters

September 15, 2016/in Elections, Must Read, Policy, Politics, Regulation, Waste, Fraud and Abuse /by Ruth Roman
By Ruth Roman and Rich Gabbay

Investigative Report – Part III

In my previous articles I revealed Supervisor of Elections, Dr. Brenda Snipes has ignored both Federal and Florida Statutes by refusing to cleanse ineligible voters from the voter rolls of Broward County, Florida.

It was disclosed to Dr. Snipes that some 190 Broward voters who voted in the March 2016 Presidential Primary also voted in the April, 2016 New York State Presidential Primary. To date, Dr. Snipes did not respond to the Florida Statutory request, and has once again chosen to ignore public activism challenging the abuse of her position as Broward Supervisor of Elections.

In 2013, Florida Secretary of State, Ken Detzner, issued a directive which sought to define and tighten the integrity of the absentee ballot choice from its creation source to the security of the S.O.E.’s main election offices. Just three days before the commencement of early voting in the August 2016 Primary Election, Ms. Snipes issued a press release. A creative interpretation of Florida Statute enabled Snipes to decree that up to 10 ballots at a time could be “voted” at 11 of the 20 early voting sites, when only (2) is allowed per person under Florida Statues. On the surface, one would consider this an expeditious voter-processing improvement. But, in reality it appears to be a larger insidious strategy to usurp and corrupt the lawful execution of the electoral process.

What follows is this writer’s speculation derived from the logical progression of recent events. Follow that: the maintenance of voter rolls that inflate by 15-20% the actual count facilitates Snipe’s strategic activities in the following manner.

In October, 2015 all (registered or ACTIVE?) 1.1 million plus Broward registered voters received a Vote-By-Mail Information Brochure encouraging them to request Vote-By-Mail ballots in future elections. It follows, that some 150,000-200,000 questionable recipients at questionable addresses, such as UPS offices, received this invitation. (If 20% of these questionable “unknown origin requests” were returned then perhaps 30,000-40,000 phantom ballots may be processed in the November 8th election.) The potential of voter fraud is further enhanced because the questionable “unknown origin requests” Vote-By-Mail ballots deposited in multiple lots at multiple precincts are in the possession of Ms. Snipes and her staff. Even more disturbing, reports reveal prior elections have received numerous counting and scanning complaints in the absentee ballot reporting process. Furthermore, voter fraud potential is enhanced because Florida Statutes forbid absentee ballots submitter’s addresses from being made public, so how can they be audited?

Recently, S.O.E. Dr. Brenda Snipes made the news again, when the primary election results in Broward County were put on the election’s web page by her office a half hour before the closing of the polls. Regardless of whether this was directly attributable to Snipes or not, her authority as S.O.E. makes her responsible for the outcome, which is a third class felony violation of Florida Statutes. Secretary of State, Ken Detzner fired off memos to Broward’s State’s Attorney, Michael Satz and Sheriff Scott Israel, requesting an investigation. Meanwhile Ms. Snipes reflexively produced an affidavit signed by a machine operator who claimed it was his fault. If it was determined that Ms. Snipes be “held harmless,” why after 13 days has there not been a definitive statement by Satz? Odds are though, that she will be granted a pass on this incident, setting the precedent for the “machine failure” excuse in the November Presidential Election when highly suspicious partisan tallies are posted.

The General Election is now less than two months away. Our elected officials, Florida Secretary of State, Detzner, Attorney General, Bondi and Governor Scott have failed to prioritize the issue of voter fraud and thereby they themselves have become unwarily complicit enablers of voter disenfranchisement. We call upon our Tallahassee officials to enforce Florida Statues to sanction or remove, by executive order if necessary, our rogue and notorious Supervisor of Elections, Dr. Brenda Snipes.

There is an unbroken theme here, election after election, Snipes enables and contributes to voter fraud, violates election statutes, and Secretary of State, Detzner, seems impotent or pressured not to reign in this staff’s flawed math, missing cartons of ballots, “cranky machines” are but some examples. All the while, she has never, not once taken personal responsibility for the questionable outcomes. Indeed, why would she when there have never been any consequences for her ineptitude or misdeeds? To date, Dr. Snipes has not responded to the Florida Statutory request, and once again has chosen to ignore public activism and has continued to abuse her position as Broward County Supervisor of Elections.

This is also a huge problem in Palm Beach County, with its highly partisan and utterly incompetent SOE, Susan Bucher. I personally witnessed multiple instances of vote fraud when I was overseeing the correction of the 60,000 defective general election absentee ballots she mailed out in 2012. I saw CORRECTED ballots examined by the SOE machine-feeding personnel thrown in the trash, and I assume it was done to those ballots that had votes for Romney at the top of the ticket, and a straight Dims ticket under him.

The SOE in St. Lucie County had 141% turnout of the registered voters in the county, and our cowardly SOS Detzner did NOTHING, despite many eyewitness accounts like mine. It will be no different this year. God help us.

Florida Ground Zero for Voter Fraud: Broward County Supervisor Changes Absentee Ballot Rules

August 19, 2016 Ruth Roman

Part II: Investigative Report on Voter Fraud in Florida

In my previous article, I revealed that a lawsuit had been filed against Broward County Supervisor of Elections Dr. Brenda Snipes, which alleges that voter rolls have not been properly maintained, in accordance with federal law. Moreover, citizen complaints against Dr. Snipes to clean up the voter rolls date back to October 2015 and no overt actions have been taken to address this.

Another component of voting that has a potential for fraud is Early Voting, which provides a minefield of opportunities for a determined S.O.E. to change the outcome of an election, which is executed through voter dilution and is the ‘tool of choice’ for those engaging in election fraud. This was evident in a Florida Dept. of Law Enforcement investigation of the 1997 Miami mayoral election which uncovered massive fraud involving more than five thousand absentee ballots, which resulted in the overturning of the election itself.

In Broward County, S.O.E. Snipes and her Registration Director, Mary Hall has received the following registered complaints during Regular and Early Voting:

Poll workers were not asking potential voters for their ID’s
Poll workers did not challenge potential voters when their signature did not match their ID
Eyewitness testimony that Broward poll workers were instructed not to ask for a proper ID
Individuals returning to vote twice were not challenged
No early voting sites were established in many Republican districts
Partisan ratio of scanners in precincts
Insufficient number of scanners in Republican districts resulting in long lines of people to wait vote (in the hot sun)
Voters were instructed to place their ballots in a box when the only assigned scanner in that precinct malfunctioned
Favored Democrats by adding early voting sites in their districts
Disenfranchisement tactic: No ballots at selected sites because they ran out of ballots
Disenfranchisement tactic: Doors locked at designated opening time of early voting site
Disenfranchisement tactic: Closing early voting sites earlier than posted
Busloads of H.S. students dropped off to vote and then bribed with lunches
Ballot-stuffing empirical eyewitness account of a 6” pile of un-scanned but filled out ballots placed in collection well of a scanner by an IT worker

Now a red flag is raised after Dr. Snipes recently submitted a press release in which she states that she has changed the rules; this time with absentee ballots, which she has renamed ‘vote by mail ballots.’ The press release states that people can bring up to 10 absentee ballots to 11 of the 20 Early Voting Sites. This unethical procedure is a first, as no previous election has permitted Absentee Ballots to be “voted” at an Early Voting Site. In the past, Absentee ballots could be mailed in by the voter or turned in at the S.O.E.’s office or the auxiliary S.O.E office. The number of ballots that could be turned in by any one person had a limit as well. Florida statues state’ “Any elector may designate in writing a person to pick up the ballot for the elector; however the person designated may not pick up more than two vote-by-mail absentee ballots per election, other than the designee’s own ballot.” Could this be a subliminal manipulation leading to widespread voter fraud? It certainly appears to be suspicious especially because there is no reasonable way to monitor this activity with so many early voting sites. Furthermore, an alarm is raised because of the unpredictable timing of this rule change, three days before the execution of early voting, which begins Saturday, August 20th.

Despite the fact that a lawsuit has been filed against Dr. Snipes for dereliction of duty for not maintaining proper voting rolls, now she is OVERTLY VIOLATING FLORIDA VOTING STATUTES. Where is the oversight to reign in a rogue S.O.E that has the power to change laws?

The voting public needs to insist that Tallahassee will provide prosecutors and then issue a warning right before Election Day that fraudsters will be prosecuted. It should be made universally known, that a person who commits or attempts to commit any fraud in connection with voting, uses a fraudulent ballot, or votes more than once in an election can be convicted of a felony of the third degree and fined up to $5,000, and /or imprisoned for up to five years, in accordance with Florida Statue 101.657.

The Startling Impact of Illegal Immigration in Florida

July 11, 2017/in Immigration, Must Read, National Security, Policy, Politics, Social Issues, Taxes, Waste, Fraud and Abuse /by Ruth Roman
Jonathan Hanen, the Atlantic regional field representative from the Federation for American Immigration Reform (FAIR) recently spoke to the Champions of Liberty Tea Party in Ft. Lauderdale, joined by members of F.L.I.M.E.N, and presented a comprehensive list of statistics which reveal the startling impact of illegal immigration in the state of Florida and the taxpayer’s ultimate burden.

Immigration by the Numbers
Population (2011 Census Bureau estimate) 19,057,542
Illegal Alien Population (2010 FAIR estimate) 820,000
Illegal Alien Share (2010 FAIR estimate) 4.3%
Projected Population 2050 (2006 FAIR estimate) 31,750,000
Dept. of Motor Vehicles, Florida Data 2017
According to the Florida Dept. of Motor Vehicles, in 2017 there was an excess of 20 million registered motor vehicles. They project by 2050 there will be 30% more residents in the state, which means 26 million more autos on the highway. Does anyone believe that this is sustainable?

Cost to the Florida Taxpayer
There is an estimated 820,000 illegal aliens living in Florida and ‘in state’ and ‘local’ cost to the taxpayer of $5.5 billion. F.A.I.R estimates that they may pay an estimated $261 million in taxes collected by the state, leaving a burden of more than $5.2 billion for Florida taxpayers to absorb.

Sanctuary Cities
The number of Sanctuary Cities and Counties in Florida has exploded to at least twelve. They are:

Broward County
Miami-Dade County
Herano County
Hillsbourgh County
Palm Beach County
Pinellas County
Pasco County
DeLeon Springs
Lake Worth
Sanctuary cities have chosen to protect the illegal immigrant, despite the fact that he could have a criminal history or could be a terrorist that just snuck across the border. What about the protection of the citizens and their families?

What Are Florida Taxpayers Supporting?
Illegal immigration has placed a $3.34 billion burden on the taxpayer for education, $660 million for healthcare, $579 million for law enforcement, $317 million for public assistance, and $568 million for general government services. These figures equate to $5.2 billion (2010), which amounts to $981 per household headed by a U.S. citizen. We must remind those that support open borders that there is an ultimate burden each Florida family must bear and sacrifice for this.

In Florida, natives accounted for most of the increase in the working age population, (16-65), but more than half of the employment gains went to immigrants, (2000-2014). According to Floridians for Immigration Enforcement, (F.L.I.M.E.N.), since the jobs recovery began in 2010, 64% of net employment growth among the state’s working age population has gone to immigrants. While agriculture is important to the state, it employs a tiny share of immigrant workers, less than one percent.

The supply of potential workers in Florida indicates that a half a million native-born college graduates were not working in the first quarter of 2014, as were one million with some college and 1.4 million with no more than a high school education. The labor force participation of black, Hispanic and less educated worker show the biggest declines.

Illegal Alien Crime
In April of 2017, U.S. Customs Enforcement, I.C.E., arrested 73 criminal illegal aliens across Florida. Of those arrested, 57 had criminal records including felonies for such crimes as sexual battery, child sex crimes, aggravated assault with a deadly weapon, and other weapons and drug violations. According to I.C.E. 2016 records, they conducted 240,255 removals nationwide; 92% of those removed had previously been convicted of a crime. In April, 2016, Miami-Dade authorities announced arrest warrants for 22 people suspected of laundering money for Mexican drug cartel kingpin, Joaquin “El Chapo” Guzman. In March, 2016, Feds arrested 26 suspected MS-13 gang members from the notoriously vicious South American Mara Salvatrucha international gang, seizing narcotics and 150 firearms in Miami-Dade County. The impact of lives lost, crime and narcotic trafficking impacts all Floridians, despite age, gender or income level.

Floridians for Immigration Enforcement
FLIMEN has been actively encouraging E-Verify for all employers in the state of Florida and nationwide, requiring them to confirm the legal status of new hires. By doing so, the job magnet would be squelched and illegal immigration could be curbed. Unfortunately, after years of pushing this mandate, despite the fact that Florida has a Republican governor and legislature, E-Verify still has not be voted on. Perhaps the special interest groups and employers in the state would rather turn a blind eye to the hiring of illegal immigrants over native Floridians.

Illegal immigration may have temporarily slowed down because of President Trump’s mandate to ‘Build The Wall’ on the southern border, however, the impact of illegal immigration has not dissipated, as every taxpayer is still burdened with the ultimate absorption of costs, decline in pay and quality of living as a result of years of illegal border crossings.

As far as I know Governor Scott supports President Trump’s stand on deporting illegal aliens who are criminals. I understand that ICE will be looking at all illegals in the future.

Exclusive: Jihadi Cult Associate Arrested in NY with Firearms Stockpile

This is just one of many terror camps spread out across our country, many sources claim that there are Islamic terror cells in every U.S. state.

By Clarion Project’s Ryan Mauro and Christian Action Network President Martin Mawyer

A long-time associate of a U.S.-based Islamist terrorist organization, Muslims of America (MOA), has been arrested in Johnson City, NY. Authorities discovered that he had a large cache of weapons inside a storage locker. A source inside MOA says the weapons were intended for the group’s “Islamberg” headquarters in Hancock, NY.

The suspect, 64-year old Ramadan Abdullah, was previously arrested in 1977 when he and another man tried to rob a candy store in Brooklyn and someone was murdered in the process. When police searched his home, they found enough material to build 50 bombs. In the end, the charges against Abdullah were strangely reduced (see below).

On May 31, Abdullah was arrested after trying to steal four boxes of ammunition from a local Gander Mountain store. When police questioned him about the purpose of the ammo, his answers made them suspicious, and they obtained a search warrant for a storage locker he was renting in the town of Union.

During that search, police found a large assortment of weaponry including:

8 assault weapons
4 loaded handguns
1 loaded shotgun
2 rifles
64 high-capacity ammunition feeding devices
flak jackets
1,000s of rounds of ammunition, including .50-caliber armor-piercing rounds
Searches of other residences linked to Abdullah turned up another loaded handgun, more high-capacity ammunition feeding devices and ammunition, including .38-caliber rounds.

New York State Police Major Jim Barnes would not say whether Abdullah was connected to terrorist groups or any organizations, but confirmed that police believe Abdullah had made trips overseas.

“There’s no indications there was a plan in place to commit an act of violence. However, it begs the question, what was he doing with all this and what were his intentions down the road?” said New York State Police Maj. Jim Barnes.

“It’s just a tremendous blessing to be able to take all these high power weapons and high power ammunition off the streets, and who knows what kind of large scale tragedy that this investigation may have prevented later down the road,” said Johnson City Police Chief Brent Dodge.

Abdullah is currently being held in the Broome County Jail without bail.

(MOA), which has been described as a terrorist organization in documents from the FBI and other agencies. A 2003 file says MOA is linked to terrorists in Pakistan, including Al-Qaeda affiliates.

The group’s headquarters is a 70-acre compound in Hancock, NY called “Islamberg.” It is just a 50-minute drive from where Abdullah was arrested.

MOA is led by a radical cleric in Pakistan named Sheikh Mubarak Ali Gilani, who demands a cultish loyalty from his followers in America. Gilani indoctrinates them to follow a hate-filled extremist ideology that includes violent jihad against perceived enemies of Islam and a belief that they are fulfilling apocalyptic prophecies.

The group has claimed to have 22 “Islamic villages” across the U.S., mostly in rural areas, which have been used as guerilla training compounds. The group also has a history of committing acts of terrorism and crimes including murder, gun smuggling, narcotics trafficking and money laundering.

A 2007 FBI report warns that MOA “possesses an infrastructure capable of planning and mounting terrorist campaigns overseas and within the U.S.” It says “members of the MOA are encouraged to travel to Pakistan to receive religious and military/terrorist training from [Sheikh] Gilani.”

Lawyer Ask Appeals Court to Let Him Defend Cliven Bundy in Nevada Case

Former President Obama pardoned a host of ‘Bad Guys’ on his way out the door, including GITMO terrorists, (who went on to join their ISIS jihadi comrades), high level drug dealers, who were involved in international drug trafficking of heroin, cocaine and meth, in addition to other dangerous felons. Unfortunately, he forgot about the Bundy Ranchers who were arrested defending their land, and our American military heroes that are still languishing in U.S. prisons because they allegedly broke Obama’s ‘Rules of Engagement.’ The cowardly rules that the Obama administration incorporated states that our military, in the field of operations, must not shoot the enemy until he shoots first. It is time for the Trump administration to intervene, address these injustices and free these victims.

July 8, 2016 – 11:18 am

Nationally known lawyer Larry Klayman has asked a federal appeals court to overrule a Nevada judge who refused to allow him to defend rancher Cliven Bundy in the Bunkerville standoff case.
In papers filed this week with the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals, Klayman argued that Chief U.S. District Judge Gloria Navarro has twice erroneously denied his bid to join Bundy’s defense team, violating Bundy’s constitutional right to a lawyer of his choice.
Klayman and Las Vegas attorney Joel Hansen, who also signed the papers, told the San Francisco-based appeals court that Hansen cannot handle Bundy’s defense alone.
“If Mr. Bundy does not have Mr. Klayman to work with Mr. Hansen, Mr. Bundy will not have an experienced and full defense team with sufficient resources to adequately defend him,” the lawyers wrote.
With Bundy and 18 other defendants facing a Feb. 6 trial before Navarro,“time is ticking,” the lawyers said. Bundy risks life in prison if convicted of felony charges stemming from the April 12, 2014, armed standoff with law enforcement near his Bunkerville ranch.
Navarro has refused to let Klayman into the high-profile case until he can give her proof that “ethical disciplinary proceedings” against him in Washington, D.C., have been resolved in his favor.
But Klayman argued that is an impossible task because those proceedings will not be formally resolved until long after the criminal case against Bundy is over.
Klayman, the founder of the Washington-based public interest groups Judicial Watch and Freedom Watch, is known for his tenacious pursuit of litigation, mostly in support of a wide range of conservative and libertarian issues.
His troubles with the Washington bar stemmed from three separate alleged conflicts of interest in litigation involving Judicial Watch after he left the organization as its legal counsel, according to court documents.
Klayman contends Navarro has an “extra-judicial bias and prejudice” against Bundy because she was appointed by President Barack Obama at the recommendation of U.S. Sen. Harry Reid, D-Nev., who has been openly critical of the rancher.
Earlier this year, Navarro refused to get off the criminal case, and Klayman filed a lawsuit in federal court to try to get her removed.
