On Thursday, Georgia Secretary of State Brian Kemp sent a letter to
the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) to ask “why [it] was
attempting to breach” the firewall protecting his computer
infrastructure. The letter also drew attention to the fact that “under
18 U.S.C. 1030, attempting to gain access or exceeding authorized access
to protected computer systems is illegal.”

In the weeks and months leading up to the elections, DHS and other
federal agencies expressed growing concerns over the threat of Russian
hackers penetrating government computers. Many of those concerns were
based in the oft-repeated claim that the hacking of the databases and
e-mail servers of the Democratic National Committee (DNC) was the work
of Russian hackers. That claim has never been proved, and many experts
have said it is not the case. In fact, Julian Assange — the founder and
public face of WikiLeaks, which published the DNC documents — flatly
denied that the source was Russian.
Based on the accepted “wisdom” that the hacks came from Russia —
whether from individual hackers or directed by Moscow — DHS issued a
series of recommendations to the states for protecting their voter
registration and election systems against attacks aimed at hacking the
election. DHS also offered its assistance in providing “cyber hygiene
scans or penetration testing” before the elections. As Kemp reminded DHS
in his letter:

Georgia was one of the only few states
that did not seek DHS assistance with cyber hygiene scans or penetration
testing before this year’s election. We declined this assistance due to
having already implemented the security measures suggested by DHS.

It appears that — in keeping with its heavy-handed approach in
general — DHS was unwilling to take no for an answer. On November 15 —
days after the election — “an IP address associated with the
Department of Homeland Security made an unsuccessful attempt to
penetrate the Georgia Secretary of State’s firewall,” according to
Kemp’s letter. Kemp also reminded DHS of the fact that its attempted
penetration of the firewall was both unwanted and unsuccessful:

At no time has my office agreed to or
permitted DHS to conduct penetration testing or security scans of our
network. Moreover, your Department has not contacted my office since
this unsuccessful incident to alert us of any security event that would
require testing or scanning of our network. This is especially odd and
concerning since I serve on the Election Cyber Security Working Group
that your office created.

Kemp’s letter
also makes the point that one of his responsibilities as secretary of
state is to “protect Georgians’ data against the type of event that
occurred on November 15” and that since he takes that responsibility
seriously, he has “contracted with a global leader in monitored security
services to provide immediate responses to these types of threats.” He

As you may know, the Georgia Secretary of
State’s office maintains the statewide voter registration data base
containing the personal information of over 6.5 million Georgians. In
addition, we hold the information for over 800,000 corporate entities
and over 500,000 licensed or registered professionals.
As Georgia’s Secretary of State, I take
cyber security very seriously. That is why I have contracted with a
global leader in monitored security services to provide immediate
responses to these types of threats. This firm analyzes more than 180
billion events a day globally across a 5,000+ customer base which
includes many Fortune 500 companies. Clearly, this type of resource and
service is necessary to protect Georgians’ data against the type of
event that occurred on November 15.

It is noteworthy that Kemp sees this attempted intrusion by DHS as a
threat. If DHS were correct and Georgia were in need of DHS
“assistance,” it would seem that DHS would have succeeded in penetrating the firewall protecting the Georgia secretary of state’s computer infrastructure. Since DHS failed to hack into those systems, it is fair to assume that Russian hackers do not pose a credible threat to those systems, either.

Perhaps the only thing more embarrassing to an overreaching federal
agency than telling it you don’t need its help is proving it by
preventing them from forcing it on you.
This case illustrates the value of a free-market approach. By
contracting with “a global leader in monitored security services” (a
private firm), Kemp was able to “protect Georgians’ data against” even an attack launched by DHS.
By demonstrating the value of a free-market approach and the fact that
states can handle these matters themselves without “assistance” from the
federal government, Kemp also demonstrated the lack of value of DHS and
its heavy-handed approach.
That is just peachy.

 AUSTIN — A coalition of abortion providers have 
filed suit in an effort to stop Texas officials from requiring that they
 bury or cremate the bodies of the unborn children they kill instead of 
having them incinerated with medical waste and dumped in landfills.

“The regulation enshrines into law an exceedingly narrow set of
beliefs regarding embryonic and fetal personhood, and what is
appropriate for the disposition of embryonic and fetal tissue,” the lawsuit,
filed on Monday, asserts. “These views do not reflect the diversity of
views people hold about when human life begins and about the proper
disposition of bodies.”

As previously reported, the rule, requested by Gov. Greg Abbott, is set to take effect on Dec. 19.

“Governor Abbott believes human and fetal remains should not be
treated like medical waste, and the proposed rule changes affirms the
value and dignity of all life,” spokesperson Ciara Matthews said in a
statement in July when the proposal was first announced. “For the
unborn, the mothers and the hospital and clinic staff, the governor
believes it is imperative to establish higher standards that reflect our
respect for the sanctity of life.”

Abortion facilities customarily contract with third party medical
waste companies to dispose of the aborted babies, which are usually
classified as “pathological waste.” The containers of aborted babies,
mixed in with boxes of bodily fluids, tissues and other items that are
not permitted to be thrown in the trash, are then transported to an
incineration plant where they are burned into ash and then dumped into

However, current Texas law also allows for other types of disposal,
including “grinding and discharging to a sanitary sewer system,”
“chlorine disinfection/maceration followed by deposition in a sanitary
landfill” or other “approved alternate treatment process, provided that
the process renders the item as unrecognizable, followed by deposition
in a sanitary landfill.”

The new law will now mandate that abortionists utilize services provided by funeral homes rather than medical waste companies.

Therefore, several abortion facilities are seeking to put a stop to
the requirement, with Whole Woman’s Health, Brookside Women’s Medical
Center, Austin Women’s Health Center, Alamo Women’s Reproductive
Services, and others filing suit. As previously reported, the medical waste company Stericycle was fined $42,000 in 2011 for dumping fetal remains from Whole Woman’s Health with household and commercial trash.

“It imposes a funeral ritual on women who have a miscarriage
management procedure, ectopic pregnancy surgery, or an abortion,” the
legal challenge, filed in part by the New York-based Center for
Reproductive Rights, reads. “It also forces healthcare providers to work
with an extremely limited number of third-party vendors for burial or
scattering ashes, threatening abortion clinics’ provision of care and
their long-term ability to remain open, as well as cost increases for
women seeking pregnancy-related medical care.”

It also asserts that the plaintiffs aren’t aware of any burial or
cremation service that isn’t more expensive than using a medical waste
disposal service, and that the rule will make women feel shame and guilt
over ending the life of their unborn child.

“By depriving women of the moral agency to act in accordance with
their own views about personhood, the regulation deprives women of
dignity,” the suit states. “The regulation’s imposition onto women’s
autonomy and invasion of their privacy will also harm women spiritually
and emotionally, causing trauma, guilt, shame, anger, and
feelings of exploitation and violation.”

The abortion providers are therefore seeking an injunction, as well as a declaration that the rule is unconstitutional.

“Governor Abbott believes human and fetal remains should not be
treated like medical waste, and the proposed rule changes affirms the
value and dignity of all life,” Matthews said on Monday in response to
the suit. “For the unborn, the mothers and the hospital and clinic
staff, the governor believes it is imperative to establish higher
standards that reflect our respect for the sanctity of life.”

 Palestinian Lies and Myths: Jihad and Jew Hatred

The ghouls of the Obama-era Left leave no stone unturned in
demonizing the Jews and indoctrinating children into the hating of the
good for being the good.

This is analogous to the “Palestinian” indoctrination of children:
they teach them at the youngest ages to hate Israel and want to kill
Jews. And now the same thing has come to Ithaca, New York.

“VIDEO: Activists manipulate third-graders into hating Israel,” by William A. Jacobson, Legal Insurrection, December 11, 2016 (thanks to Armaros):

Ithaca (NY) third grade event shows how anti-Israel indoctrination has moved into elementary schools.

Anti-Israel activism by faculty at colleges and universities receives
a lot of media attention in part because campuses generally are open to
the public and college students are able to report on what happens.

Faculty-inspired anti-Israel activism, however, is not limited to
colleges and universities. I hear many parents and students complain
that by the time many students reach college, they already have been
turned against Israel.

Far under the radar, the attempt to demonize Israel is moving down
the educational chain even into elementary schools, pushed by activists
who accept no boundaries even for young children. Yet because such
activities take place in schools to which access is limited, and the
young students are not developmentally able to report on what happens,
it’s rare to obtain hard visual proof.

We have such proof.

On Friday morning, September 18, 2015, the third grade classes at the
Beverly J. Martin School in Ithaca, NY, heard a presentation on “human
rights” by Palestinian activist Bassem Tamimi and local anti-Israel activists, led by Ariel Gold. We broke the story a couple of days later, Anti-Israel activism hits elementary school in Ithaca, NY.

Based on documents produced pursuant to a NY Freedom of Information
Law (FOIL) request and court rulings, previously we were able to
document that the Tamimi event was an anti-Israel propaganda event. At
least one third-grade student suffered nightmares and a Letter of Reprimand was issued to the school principal for attempting to cover-up the nature of the event.

Previously, though, we didn’t have any video of the Tamimi Event,
just the paper and electronic record of communications. While that paper
and electronic record was shocking, only video could fully convey what

After over a year of investigation and litigation, including a court order
under the NY Freedom of Information Law, Legal Insurrection has
obtained a partial video of the Tamimi Event. That partial video shows
how, after the main portion of the presentation was over (for which
there is almost no video), the third-grade students expressed strong
hostility to Israel and were encouraged to do so.

That video, which has been blurred and bleeped to protect student
identities, is embedded in its entirety below. As bad as I expected it
to be, it was worse. I was shaken as I watched the manipulation of these
8 and 9 year olds in a public school.

This video, and the Tamimi event, should serve as a clarion call.

The Attempt to Portray the Tamimi Event as Loving

On Sunday night, September 20, 2015, Legal Insurrection broke the story, Anti-Israel activism hits elementary school in Ithaca, NY.

Because of Tamimi’s notoriety for exploiting children
in videotaped confrontations with Israeli soldiers, Tamimi’s mere
appearance in a third grade class raised suspicions about the event. The
Tamimis are best known for the 2012 video
of daughter Ahed confronting Israeli soldiers for the cameras, for
which she received an award from then Turkish Prime Minister (and
current President) Recep Tayyip Erdoğan.

Subsequent to the Ithaca third-grade event, Tamimi was barred from entry to the U.S.

Gold is an Ithaca-based anti-Israel activist who now works for Code Pink. She is best known for generating publicity through disrupting speeches and events, and even prayers at the Western Wall. Gold uses her own children in her anti-Israel activism.

Gold, who was Tamimi’s national tour coordinator, arranged the Tamimi
event at the elementary school. The discussion was guided by teacher
Brooke Burnett, a friend of Gold, and partially filmed by Mary Anne
Grady Flores, another Ithaca activist who is friends with Gold and

Gold has attempted to describe the Tamimi event as loving and
promoting peace, even the call for the school children to become
“freedom fighters for Palestine”:

Tamimi also defended the event:

Initially, the principal of the elementary school, Susan Eschbach,
also attempted to downplay the significance of the Tamimi event. In a
September 22, 2015, statement to the school community Eschbach denied
there was anything improper. The statement provided, in pertinent part (full text here):

Responding to the concerns about Tamimi’s arrival at BJM….

There were many adults present in the class and at no time was there
an anti-Israel, anti-Palestine, anti-Jewish, or anti-Muslim stance. The
children took away from this experience several messages .”I can be an
ambassador for peace.” “ You can make friends across borders and that is
a good thing.” “Children want the option to live peacefully and to go
to school. Children can help stand for these desires.” “Everyone should
work things out to live together.” And “love will make peace, not hate.”
The children had meaningful, relevant, and appropriate conversations.

Superintendent: Politically Skewed, Inflammatory, and Not “Developmentally Appropriate”

The statement from Eschbach to the community was rebutted, in
substance, when Superintendent of the Ithaca City School District
(ICSD), Dr. Luvelle Brown, later released a statement denouncing the
event, Superintendent: Third Grade event “politically skewed, inflammatory” against Israel.

The Superintendent’s statement provided, in part (emphasis added):

… The assumed purpose of the talk was to focus on human rights and peace. Upon further investigation, we have learned that the speakers went beyond the original intent of the talk. Additionally, school administration was not informed beforehand of the invitation to include one of the speakers.

The following statements are some of the most egregious examples from the presentation:

● At the beginning of the session, the speakers showed a brief video
of a young Palestinian girl who references Israelis killing

●There was an indication by the speakers that Israel has broken many
United Nations’ laws and that Israel controls all of the resources of
the geographic area;

● In a closing statement of how students could help, a speaker spoke
of solidarity and being freedom fighters for Palestine; to bring peace
and protect the future of their children.

The Ithaca City School District’s position is that such statements are not
developmentally appropriate for third graders, nor aligned with the New
York State standards. The statements were politically skewed,
inflammatory, and not endorsed by the Ithaca City School District

… We recognize that the Israeli Palestinian conflict is very
sensitive to many members of our community. We also recognize that this
delicate topic was not presented in a manner consistent with its
importance. We sincerely regret that this has occurred.

Jewish Voice for Peace,
in which Gold is active, started a petition drive asserting that
criticism of the Tamimi event was an attempt to stifle Palestinian
voices, and 31 parents at the Beverly J. Martin school (it’s unclear if
any had children in the class), led by Ithaca College Park School of
Communications employee Nicole Koschmann, submitted a letter to the
editor of the Ithaca Journal, Teachers know best about school speakers, defending the Tamimi event:

We, 31 Beverly J. Martin Elementary School parents, are
writing in regards to recent news regarding the Palestinian human-rights
activist visit at BJM on Sept. 18….

We parents believe teachers are the professionals in their field
regarding the developmental stages of their students, what is
appropriate, and what relates to the standards that need to be taught.
They are trained in this. Law professors at Cornell University do not
have this expertise. Political activists do not have this expertise.
This knowledge lies with teachers and their principal….

The reactionary swell created outside of BJM as a result of this
event is especially shameful when one considers the amount of resources
the teachers and administrators have had to divert from their job of
educating our children.

Our children were not preyed or imposed upon by the visitors that
day. Instead, they were exposed to a perspective and a situation.

The conversation will continue at school and at home. We are not
afraid of differing opinions. In fact, teaching students to disagree
respectfully, and with patience and compassion, is one of the key
elements of teaching human rights. Unfortunately, this is not a lesson
many adults have learned.

And what is on the horizon if Trump doesn’t tear up the deal and lets the Islamic Republic 
of Iran proceed on course? World war and the destruction of Israel.

“Trump’s Iran stance could threaten a WORLD WAR and the destruction
of Israel, warns Tehran as it cautions the Donald against ‘provoking’
them in the Middle East,” by Thomas Burrows, MailOnline, December 11, 2016:

The Iranian defense minister has warned that Donald Trump
could trigger a world war and the ‘destruction’ of Israel and small
Gulf Arab states if he provokes the Middle Eastern power.

Trump’s election victory has raised the prospect the US will pull out of the nuclear pact signed by Barack Obama last year.

During his campaign, Trump was strongly critical of the agreement
that saw Iran agree to limits on its nuclear program in exchange for the
lifting of international sanctions on its oil industry and finances.

In September 2015, the billionaire told a crowd: ‘Any
commander-in-chief worthy of defending this nation should be prepared to
stand up on 20 January 2017 [inauguration day] and rip to shreds this
catastrophic deal.’

He also called the deal a ‘disaster’ and ‘the worst deal ever negotiated’.

This has led to panic among US allies in the Gulf, Iranian Defense Minister Hossein Dehghan has claimed.

‘Even though a businessman, the assistants that … (Trump) has chosen
may map a different path for him, and this has led to unease,
particularly among Persian Gulf countries,’ Dehghan told a security
conference in Tehran, according to Iran’s Mehr news agency.

‘Considering Trump’s character and that he measures the cost of
everything in dollars, it does not seem likely that he would take strong
action against our country,’ he said.

‘Enemies may want to impose a war on us based on false calculations
and only taking into consideration their material capabilities…

‘Such a war would mean the destruction of the Zionist regime (Israel)
… and will engulf the whole region and could lead to a world war,’ Mehr
quoted Dehghan as saying.

‘Among other consequences of the war, would be the destruction of the
city-states on the southern shore of the Persian Gulf, because they
lack popular support,’ Dehghan said, referring to small Western-allied
Gulf states such as the United Arab Emirates, Bahrain and Qatar.

However Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, who has been a
fierce critic of the agreement, hoped he could work with Trump to
dismantle the deal.

He said: ‘I know Donald Trump. And I think his attitude, his support
for Israel is clear. He feels very warmly about the Jewish state, about
the Jewish people.’

Pressed on what those options might be, Netanyahu said he had ‘about five things in my mind’, but did not elaborate….

This is a true story about one of Americas most courageous families.

Controversy is state I’ve learned to live with, a badge of honor that
often stings. It’s a badge the Bundy family possesses in abundance,
because you stand up, you will always be attacked. My brother and I
stood with the Bundy’s in 2014; we saw the truth and we felt the danger.
When Oregon happened there was no question in our minds that these men
and woman deserved the support of all who love liberty. Their message
was pure. But much of America did not feel the same. Why?

Like many activists and prisoners, from patriots to the natives. The
hate for the Bundy’s comes from lies who’s intent is to make the story
of a warrior misunderstood.  Our “justice” system goes to great lengths
to ensure the real story does not reach the masses. This works because
we don’t really want to know how bad it is. That’s why it’s important to
share a story no matter how you feel about a person. Watch it and make
sure others do the same, sending it to those who know and to those who
do not.

People often say, there’s nothing we can do. But I do something every
day and if you will set aside differences and do something with me, we
will set this nation free.

Many don’t know that these men are still in
prison. That they are abused and even tortured by prison staff,
disregarded by judges and lied about in media propaganda. This is not a
story of privileged white ranchers. This is a story about every falsely
imprisoned man and woman, black or white, Christian or Muslim, liberal
or conservative. A story about the way they suffer every day.

This is HD version that includes all 3 parts. I’ll want to share a
little of how it happened, but more importantly I want you do to
something. Any of you can make a video, show up somewhere, call a
prison, support the suffering or interrupt a meeting of entitled
politicians to speak the truth. It’s what America was built on.

When Ammon Bundy asked me to record this story for the world, I knew
it was important. Ammon had been working for some time on articulating
the real story of his family and those who stood with them. It needed to
be open, honest and brief. As always, Ammon had the words, we just
needed to do something with them. I figured I would add some stills and
video and we’ll push it out. Once I realized what Ammon had poured into
this message, I saw a real documentary of Americas darkest times. What
resulted took the last three months to finish.

Sound comes first so I setup the call in over my computer versus
cellular because quality is a problem. Even at that it took a lot of
post production to get the final sound, which still sounds like a phone,
but not like a the bad jail phone that it is. We had to work to try and
restore some of the richness to his voice, but you still know that it’s
coming coming a cement prison.

At times Ammon was frustrated, distracted by jail noise, reading on
scribbles notes on top of notes. I have been on the inside trying to get
a messages out from a jail; it is utterly exhausting in way that you
can only know by being there. But Ammon just kept calling back until we
had it all.

Next came video. We needed the story and we needed footage to match
the story. The Bundy’s and others had clips of critical moments, but
there had to be more, so my family and I went to Nevada and camped out
for days trying to capture the essence of the ranch. The crowning moment
of that was the last evening, the one where you see the Bundy cowboys
riding off into the Sunset  and the birds flying over the Virgin river.
It my 20 years of filming I have never had a shot like those birds. I
was glad Carol pushed the boys to saddle up and me to break out the
cameras again that final night.

Then came the hard part. As I reviewed the project I realized how
much was required and we started collecting more photos, more footage
and more of the key bits that took this from a phone call to a full
documentary that we had to mix around with work at my Studio that pays the bills.

Fine tuning a project of this scale and then laying in a good
soundtrack takes time. Sometimes people complain about the music in a
video, but it’s essential to the emotion of a story because it coneys in
part what you lack in the story by not being there. I was at Bundy
ranch, I know what it felt like, but many do not and that has to be told
not only with words but with sound in order to even partially convey
the truth of it.

This is not just a story about the Bundy’s. It’s the story of the
struggle every man woman and child in America must face. Freedom, or
slavery. I think the finished result is beautiful. I’m always amazed by
how well Ammon speaks and even though he could not be here in person,
together we managed to defy the evil of our court system in a small way
and make a story for the world that is brief, compelling and most of
all, the truth.

video and if you need to you can download and re-post it so long as it’s
