Insane Academe: Catholic university in Florida eager to host ISIS student club

America’s colleges and universities are more than left-wing, they’ve gone stark raving mad.

In 2015 America, would a university allow a student club celebrating genocidal killers like Hitler and the Nazis? Would a U.S. university host a student club glorifying serial killers and mass murderers? Would a U.S. university approve a student club that glorifies chopping off people’s heads and raises funds for the murderers? Would that university actually funnel hundreds of dollars to support that student club?

Then, to top it off, would the university that does all that be a CATHOLIC university?

You think the thought of the above is outrageous? Think again.

James O’Keefe’s Project Veritas conducted a sting operation on Florida’s Barry University and uncovered just how utterly perverse the university is.

Here’s the account, O’Keefe Exposes Another University Sympathetic to ISIS,” March 29, 2015:

Award-winning journalist and New York Times’ best-selling author James O’Keefe released a second video in as many weeks today exposing university brass sympathetic to ISIS. Last week, O’Keefe released a video showing a dean at Cornell University advising a Project Veritas investigative journalist on how to start and fund a pro-ISIS club on campus.

Today’s video reveals several high-level officials and a professor at Barry University actually sanctioning a club with the stated purpose of sending material aid to ISIS. Barry University is a prestigious south Florida institution whose alumni include the current Prime Minister of Haiti and the current Attorney General of the Bahamas.

In O’Keefe’s latest video, several Barry University officials as well as a professor appear a little too eager to guide a Project Veritas investigative journalist through the process of forming a pro-ISIS club. Derek Bley, Coordinator for Leadership Development & Student Organizations, was fully aware that the proposed student group was being formed to aid ISIS and he expressed no ethical qualms whatsoever. Disturbingly, Bley’s only concern appeared to be the use of the acronym “ISIS” in the club’s name: “We’re not here to limit people and their clubs…  but I would recommend maybe coming up with one or two other possible names just in case this one does not get through.”

The Project Veritas journalist also had a discussion with Frederique Frage, Associate Director of International and Multicultural Programs, and Daisy Santiago, International & Multicultural Programs Coordinator, both of whom were incredibly supportive of the proposed mission of the pro-ISIS club, just not its name.

Frage and Santiago appeared to be concerned only with the club’s name in a joint meeting with the Project Veritas journalist. In the open office setting where the meeting took place, Frage said: “By all means we support any student wanting to start their own organization… the only thing, as far as the name, the thing is, because technically our country is at war with ISIS.” And Santiago opined: “We talked about maybe saying [Sympathetic Students] in support of in the Middle East… as opposed to [saying] ISIS.”

Note: In other words, Barry University official Frederique Frage fully recognizes that it is improper to host a pro-ISIS student club because doing so would be aiding and abetting an enemy of the United States. There’s a word for Frage and Barry University: Traitor.

In a truly shocking and incredible development, Professor Pawena Sirimangkala signed the necessary documentation to give the Project Veritas journalist everything she needed to start the pro-ISIS club (our journalist, of course, did not). Unbelievably, just prior to signing the documentation, our journalist told Professor Sirimangkala that the name of the club had been changed, but the mission of the club was going to remain the same. Incredulously, Professor Sirimangkala simply responded: “perfect, perfect… I’ll sign… I’m glad to do it.”

“It is disturbing to see our nation’s university system festooned with professors and administrators that are sympathetic to ISIS,” stated James O’Keefe, President of Project Veritas. “First, we saw this horrifying support at Cornell University and now we have numerous officials at Barry taking things even further. As demonstrated at Cornell and Barry, our nation’s university system is being overrun by those who subscribe to ivory-tower political correctness and that is truly dangerous to our nation and our nation’s students. It is time to stop looking the other way and address this very serious issue.”

Useful Idiots of Barry University

Founded in 1940, Barry University is a private, Catholic university in Miami, Florida. It has more than 4,000 students, a campus of 54 buildings, and 40,000 alumni.

UPDATE:

Barry University has issued a statement denying all this. Briefly, President/Sister Bevilaqua says in an official statement that:

  1. “Barry University does not and never will allow or authorize the formation of an ISIS-related humanitarian aid group on campus. There has been no formation of any such group at Barry University. No paper work requesting such an organization has ever been filed with the proper authorities at the University.”
  2. “The images and video released were edited and spliced to unfairly represent the university and staff being featured.”

Regarding #1: Well, of course, no such pro-ISIS group has actually been formed in Barry University! Project Veritas’ sting was about university officials being approached about the possible formation of such a student club, to which official after official applauded and provided advice, including a professor giving her signature to the (bogus) application. Can President Bevilaqua deny that?

Regarding #2: President Bevilaqua needs to show, not merely assert, just how Project Veritas had “edited and spliced” the images and video “to unfairly represent the university and staff.” Is the university denying that its officials Derek Bley and Frederique Frage said what they said to the undercover student? Is the university denying that Professor Pawena Sirimangkala had signed the undercover student’s application to form the pro-ISIS club? — all of which was captured on camera?

In short, I don’t buy Bevilaqua’s denial. Watch Project Veritas’ video for yourself!

MASSIVE 2012 VOTER FRAUD: 35,750 with same name & DOB voted in 2 states

More evidence that Obama and the Dems stole the 2012 elections.

More evidence that the United State of America has devolved into a Third World and third rate country.

DeadPeopleVoteBryan Preston reports for PJ Media, April 2, 2014:

The North Carolina State Board of Elections has found thousands of instances of voter fraud in the state, thanks to a 28-state crosscheck of voter rolls. Initial findings suggest widespread election fraud.

  • 765 voters with an exact match of first and last name, DOB and last four digits of SSN were registered in N.C. and another state and voted in N.C. and the other state in the 2012 general election.
  • 35,750 voters with the same first and last name and DOB were registered in N.C. and another state and voted in both states in the 2012 general election.
  • 155,692 voters with the same first and last name, DOB and last four digits of SSN were registered in N.C. and another state – and the latest date of registration or voter activity did not take place within N.C.

The second point is key, as double voting is election fraud under state and federal statutes. Punishment for double voting in federal elections can include jail time.

In October 2012, Project Veritas produced video showing a Barack Obama campaign worker helping a voter register to vote in both Texas and Florida.

The Interstate Crosscheck examines 101 million voter records in more than two dozen participating states.

The findings, while large, leave open the question of just how widespread double voting might be since 22 states did not participate in the Interstate Crosscheck.

In addition to the above, the crosscheck found that more than 13,000 deceased voters remain on North Carolina’s rolls, and that 81 of them showed voter activity in their records after death.

North Carolina officials are now calling for tighter election security.

acorn_vote_fraud

That’s the call to action from NC officials? Pathetic.

What this calls for is a class-action lawsuit to overturn and nullify the 2012 Election’s supposed results — a lawsuit that should be appealed all the way to the Supreme Court.

Meanwhile, only the sound of crickets from the MSM on the massive 2012 voter fraud . . . .

It’s time to euthanize Obamacare

All signs are that the monstrosity called Obamacare (or the Affordable Care Act) is on ICU life support.

euthanasize Obamacare

Even Time magazine calls Obamacare Obama’s “broken promise.” Below is the cover of the latest edition of Time:

Time

The White House knew the Obamacare website had problems, but launched it anyway.

Obama had said in a press conference last week that the Obamacare website’s problems were a surprise to him: “We would not have rolled out something, knowing very well it wasn’t going to work out the way it’s supposed to.”

But Ed Henry reports for FoxNews that “new documents obtained by Fox suggest people inside this administration just one week before the website launch had fears that it may fail, more fears than they may have led on publicly.”

Specifically, Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services director Henry Chao wrote in an email on September 25, 2013 about “this fear the White House has about HC.gov [HealthCare.gov] being unavailable. I think we should have a more comprehensive answer as to how we will ensure high availability on the site.”

Nor has the website been fixed, despite Obama’s assurances it will. 

On Tuesday, Nov. 19, seven weeks to the day since HealthCare.gov was launched, at a much-publicized meeting with Obamacare “navigators,” the website crashed while HHS director Kathleen Sebelius tried to help a woman to sign up online. LOL

Worse still, if you go on the Obamacare website, the personal info you enter is not secure!

John Parkinson reports for ABC News that at a Congressional hearing on Nov. 19, 2013, cyber security experts said the Obama administration should take Healthcare.gov offline until privacy vulnerabilities are addressed and detection capabilities are improved. David Kennedy, a so-called “white hat hacker” who tests security flaws by hacking online systems to help identify weaknesses, warned that there are critical flaws and exposures “currently on the website that hackers could use to extract sensitive information. […] Just by looking at the website, we can see that there is just fundamental security principles that are not being followed.”

Even worse, an Obamacare navigator is conspiring to release your private data.

Who needs computer hackers when Obamacare’s navigators are using your private data for political gain?

The latest sting video from James O’Keefe and his intrepid Project Veritas team caught on tape Chris Tarango, the communications director of Texas Enroll America, agreeing to help obtain a private list of potential Obamacare enrollee data for election/political purposes. Tarango goes so far to say he’ll “do whatever it f****** takes.”

Even more medical plan cancellations are coming, 50-100 million more!

Fox News reports, Nov. 20, 2013, that “a new and independent analysis of ObamaCare warns of a ticking time bomb, predicting a second wave of 50 million to 100 million insurance policy cancellations next fall — right before the mid-term elections. The next round of cancellations and premium hikes is expected to hit employees, particularly of small businesses.”

Supporters of Obamacare are paid to do so with your tax dollars. 

Floyd Brown reports for Capitol Hill Daily: “By now, we’re all very familiar with Obamacare’s failed rollout. Yet one mystery remains: Why are some publications still praising the disgraced law? Well, the answer is simple: These publications collect millions from the government’s coffers.” WebMD, which has become a non-stop cheerleader for Obamacare, is an example.

93% of Americans want Obamacare changed or repealed.

John Nolte reports for Breitbart.com that a new CBS poll finds that only 7% of the American public want ObamaCare “kept in place.” A full 93% either believe that changes are needed to the law (48%) or want a full repeal (43%). This pits Obama and Democrat lawmakers — who thus far have refused to make any meaningful changes — against 93% of the American people and 72% of Democrats.

It’s high time to just put this Obamacare monstrosity out of its misery.

Police: You’re on your own

self reliance

James O’Keefe is that gutsy young man who, together with Hannah Giles, went undercover as a pimp and ‘ho, and captured ACORN staffers on tape advising them to circumvent the law.

Since then, O’Keefe and his investigative team are continuing to uncover political corruption through his Project Veritas organization — “to investigate and expose corruption, dishonesty, self-dealing, waste, fraud, and other misconduct in both public and private institutions in order to achieve a more ethical and transparent society.”

For Project Veritas’ latest sting operation, they visited police stations across America and asked law enforcement officials if, in the event of an armed break-in, what we should do in the minutes (or more than an hour in the case of Dallas) between calling 911 and the police’s arrival.

One officer instructed, “Go get some bleach. Go get ammonia.” Another officer instructed the undercover journalist to, “lock yourself in a bedroom” and “start yelling and screaming.”

VPOS Joe Biden recently advised Americans to “get a shotgun” for home protection. But when asked whether or not they should follow Biden’s advice, law enforcement officials told the undercover journalists they would be arrested for doing so.

The most frequent advice given by LE to the Project Veritas journalists:

You’re on your own.

Project Veritas “Outs” the Anti-Gun Newspaper Hypocrites

This “hot potato” just went up on James O’Keefe’s Project Veritas Youtube Channel.   I have a feeling it may be doomed to a short life on Youtube.  If you want to download it, see “How To Snag a Youtube Video Before it Disappears.”  ~LTG

PROJECT  VERITAS Describes their latest escapade in citizen journalism:

Posing as “Citizens Against Senseless Violence,” we visit the homes of journalists working for Westchester Journal News, MSNBC, and the Star-Ledger. We also visited the home of Eric Holder. None will take our signs that say “THIS HOME IS PROUDLY GUN FREE.”

Since these reporters and editors did not consider it a violation of the privacy and safety of others to reveal which homes have guns and which homes don’t, we went to see which of them would be willing to put a sign up publicly declaring their homes to be gun-free zones. While we didn’t find any members of the media with the strength of their convictions, we did find quite a few guns, and some good explanations for why they might be necessary….. Guns for Me, but not for Thee.

 

Son of Demonrat Congressman caught on tape plotting voter fraud

Patrick Moran is the son of Congressman Jim Moran (D-Va) and his dad’s campaign’s field director.

In the video below, you’ll see Patrick Moran advising an undercover reporter how to fraudulently cast ballots in the name of registered voters by forging utility bills and relying on the assistance of Democrat lawyers. Moran was videoed by the undercover reporter Oct. 8 at the Cosi Restaurant in Arlington, Va., just across the Potomac River from the nation’s capital.

Art Moore reports for WND, Oct. 24, 2012, that James O’Keefe’s Project Veritas, known for its hidden-camera probe of the controversial national community organizing group tied to Obama, ACORN, carried out the undercover investigation of Patrick Moran and provided the video exclusively to WND.

Jim Moran (photo left), 67, a controversial figure in Congress, has been criticized for his collaboration with Islamic leaders with ties to terrorism. In 2003, Moran, then a regional whip in the House of Representatives, was punished by House Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi after he suggested Jews were responsible for the push for war against Iraq.

The Project Veritas video shows the undercover reporter posing as a citizen concerned that the Democratic Party might lose power in the upcoming Nov. 6 elections. The reporter explains to Moran that he had been apolitical but got his girlfriend pregnant and was concerned about the political threat to the funding of “reproductive services.”

The reporter, who approaches Moran at the restaurant, says he has a friend who found the names of 100 Virginia residents who have been registered the past three elections but have not voted.

Moran initially thinks the reporter’s intent is to offer the registered voters a ride to the polling place on Election Day to ensure they cast their ballots. But the reporter states he and his friend actually want to vote in the name of the Virginia residents.

The conversation goes like this:

Reporter: There are 100 people who don’t vote. He’s looking for two guys to help him with. …

Patrick Moran: Crank it out?

Reporter: Yes. He’s got a van and he and me were going to go around. …

Patrick Moran: Rally these people up and get them to the polls.

Reporter: Well, he was actually going to get in a van and vote for them.

Patrick Moran: Ohhhh

Reporter: I know, but –

Reporter: It’s scary, but I’m not. … I don’t want to lose, and I’m frightened.

Patrick Moran: Yeah.

Later, Patrick Moran explains to the undercover reporter that although a new Virginia voter ID law requiring identification will make his effort more challenging, the new law does allowsa broad range of forms of verification, including utility bills, bank statements and library cards. So Moran suggests creating fake utility bills to serve as voter ID. But he warns that there will be “a lot of voter protection” at the polling places to enforce the identification laws.

“So, if they just have the utility bill or bank statement – bank statement would obviously be tough … but faking a utility bill would be easy enough,” Moran says.

The reporter asks: “How would you do that?”

“I mean, I would just find, I don’t know,” Moran replies. “I guess. …”

“Microsoft Word and type it up,” offers the reporter.

“Yeah, something like that,” says Moran.

Moran emphasizes that the poll workers will be “trained up” on the new law to protect voters and “be cracking down.” If there’s any trouble, he says, an Obama for America lawyer, or another Democrat lawyer, will be on hand to provide help, he said: “You’ll have somebody in house, that if they feel that what you have is legitimate, they’ll argue for you.” But he warns the reporter that the utility bill has “got to look good.”

Later, at the Arlington County Democratic Party office, Moran advises the reporter to contact the registered voters on the list to make sure they don’t plan to cast a ballot Nov. 6. He suggests obtaining the information by posing as a pollster.

Shovel Ready Green Jobs = Bullshit

PROJECT VERITAS GOES UNDERCOVER AGAIN

Undercover reporters posing as “Earth Supply and Renewal” — group dedicated to digging holes and filling them back in, meet with Labor Bosses, NY Legislator, and former NY Assemblyman, who tell them how to secure funding for “Bullshit” Green jobs.

John Hutchins, ranking member of the Broome County legislature, told the undercover reporters posing as “Earth Supply and Renewal” his opinion on taxpayer-funded grant contracts; “You know the Green Jobs — Green NY, between us, a lot of it is bullsh*t“. Anthony Tocci, business manager for Local 601, tells Earth Supply and Renewal “You just wanna(sic) get the money. Then you figure out afterwards” Former NY assemblyman Ron Tocci is also featured laughing about the irony of the company’s services: “One thing about it, it’s shovel ready.”
