There are a lot of people in Western governments whom it is easy to dislike.
Theresa May, Angela Merkel, David Cameron, Paul Ryan… Democrats, etc. But I really think Debbie Wasserman-Schulz takes the cake.
Schulz doesn’t seem naive like May or Cameron, nor completely brainwashed like Merkel, nor timid and cowardly like Ryan. Instead, she seems to know full-well that she her policies are to protect a narrow, narrow slice of highly wealthy, globalist, cosmopolitan elites (as well as her own self-interest), and doesn’t even care to hide it. Nor does she even try to come off as pleasant or likeable.
She is like that that evil librarian or teacher you had in high school with borderline personality disorder, who would spend her days trying to ruin the lives of certain students in sick and twisted ways, combined with some cannibalistic lizard that eats little European babies…
No one seems to like Wasserman-Shultz.
Real left-wing liberals don’t like her because she cheated Bernie Sanders out of the Democratic nomination, and because she has a history of belittling medical marijuana advocates.
Politoco also reported Wasserman Schultz got the job of DNC Chair because she had “lined up supporters in 2013 to portray any decision by Barack Obama to replace her as DNC chair as “anti-woman and anti-Semitic”.
People in the military don’t like her because she called the idea of hate crimes against cops and service members ‘stupid’, ‘absurb’, and ‘belittling to people who are real victims of hate crimes’.
Therefore many were glad when the DNC leaks occurred last summer, and Wasserman was forced to resign her position in the wake of the resulting scandal. Indeed, the Democrats in the crowd actually booed her off the stage at the convention at her one and only appearance.
In the aftermath of the DNC Leaks scandal that forced her resignation, Wasserman-Schulz has continued her work as a congresswoman, making sure bathrooms were ‘gender-neutral’, facilitating the important of Afghani refugees from the civil war in Syria, and exposing the Russian’s connections to the Donald Trump campaign. She has also been voracious in her attacks on Republicans for not doing enough to fight back against the anti-Semitic bomb threats toward Jewish Centers over the last year (which turned out to have been done by a young man in Israel whose family had ties to the Israeli Defense Forces and who Israel refuses to extradite).
Now, however, scandal has caught up to her again!
From Zero Hedge:
Something stinks here.
February we first reported on the Anwan brothers, the (Not-Russian) IT Staff Who Allegedly Hacked Congress’ Computer Systems.
The brothers were barred from computer networks at the House of Representatives Thursday, The Daily Caller News Foundation Investigative Group has learned.
“Three members of the intelligence panel and five members of the House Committee on Foreign Affairs were among the dozens of members who employed the suspects on a shared basis. The two committees deal with many of the nation’s most sensitive issues, information and documents, including those related to the war on terrorism.”
The brothers are suspected of serious violations, including accessing members’ computer networks without their knowledge and stealing equipment from Congress.
The three men are “shared employees,” meaning they are hired by multiple offices, which split their salaries and use them as needed for IT services.
Then in March, we noted that House Democrats decided to delay the firing (until today) because their Muslim background, some with ties to Pakistan, could make them easy targets for false charges.
“I wanted to be sure individuals are not being singled out because of their nationalities or their religion. We want to make sure everybody is entitled to due process,” Meeks said.
Then yesterday we reported that Congressional Aides Fear Suspects In IT Breach Are Blackmailing Members With Their Own Data…
The baffled aides wonder if the suspects are blackmailing representatives based on the contents of their emails and files, to which they had full access.
“I don’t know what they have, but they have something on someone. It’s been months at this point” with no arrests, said Pat Sowers, who has managed IT for several House offices for 12 years. “Something is rotten in Denmark.”
A manager at a tech-services company that works with Democratic House offices said he approached congressional offices, offering their services at one-fourth the price of Awan and his Pakistani brothers, but the members declined. At the time, he couldn’t understand why his offers were rejected but now he suspects the Awans exerted some type of leverage over members.
“There’s no question about it: If I was accused of a tenth of what these guys are accused of, they’d take me out in handcuffs that same day, and I’d never work again,” he said.
And today, The Daily Caller’s Luke Rosiak reports Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz threatened the chief of the U.S. Capitol Police with “consequences” for holding equipment that she says belongs to her in order to build a criminal case against a Pakistani staffer suspected of massive cybersecurity breaches involving funneling sensitive congressional data offsite.
The Florida lawmaker used her position on the committee that sets the police force’s budget to press its chief to relinquish the piece of evidence Thursday, in what could be considered using her authority to attempt to interfere with a criminal investigation.
The Capitol Police and outside agencies are pursuing Imran Awan, who has run technology for the Florida lawmaker since 2005 and was banned from the House network in February on suspicion of data breaches and theft.
“My understanding is the the Capitol Police is not able to confiscate Members’ equipment when the Member is not under investigation,” Wasserman Schultz said in the annual police budget hearing of the House Committee On Appropriations’ Legislative Branch Subcommittee.
“We can’t return the equipment,” Police Chief Matthew R. Verderosa told the Florida Democrat.
“I think you’re violating the rules when you conduct your business that way and you should expect that there will be consequences,” Wasserman Schultz said.
As one of eight members of the Committee on Appropriations’ Legislative Branch subcommittee, Wasserman Schultz is in charge of the budget of the police force that is investigating her staffer and how he managed to extract so much money and information from members.
In a highly unusual exchange, the Florida lawmaker uses a hearing on the Capitol Police’s annual budget to spend three minutes repeatedly trying to extract a promise from the chief that he will return a piece of evidence being used to build an active case.
“If a Member loses equipment and it is found by your staff and identified as that member’s equipment and the member is not associated with any case, it is supposed to be returned. Yes or no?” she said.
Police tell her it is important to “an ongoing investigation,” but presses for its return anyway.
The investigation is examining members’ data leaving the network and how Awan managed to get Members to place three relatives and a friend into largely no-show positions on their payrolls, billing $4 million since 2010.
The congresswoman characterizes the evidence as “belonging” to her and argues that therefore it cannot be seized unless Capitol Police tell her that she personally, as opposed to her staffer, is a target of the investigation.
When TheDCNF asked Wasserman Schultz Monday if it could inquire about her strong desire for the laptop, she said “No, you may not.” After TheDCNF asked why she wouldn’t want the Capitol Police to have any evidence they may need to find and punish any hackers of government information, she abruptly turned around in the middle of a stairwell and retreated back to the office from which she had come.
Her spokesman, David Dameron, then emerged to say “We just don’t have any comment.”
Though on the surface Wasserman Schultz would have been a victim of Awan’s scam, she has inexplicably protected him, circumventing the network ban by re-titling him as an “adviser” instead of technology administrator.
Politico described him and his wife, Hina Alvi, as having a “friendly personal relationship” with both Wasserman Schultz and Rep. Gregory Meeks of New York.
That baffled a Democratic IT staffer, who said
“I can’t imagine why she’d be that good of friends with a technology provider.”
“Usually if someone does bad stuff, an office is going to distance themselves” rather than incur political fallout for a mere staffer.
Wasserman Schultz resigned as Chairman of the Democratic National Committee in 2016 after Wikileaks published thousands of internal emails obtained by an as-yet unidentified hacker.
Here is the video of the incident, I think its time-stamped by the exchange is at the very end, like last two minutes:
This brings up obvious questions, such as:
Why does this evil harpy think she can threaten policemen?
Why does she care so much about these seized items?
Is she covering up for the Pakistani spies?
Is she worried because the police have data from her files that shows her complicity in other serious crimes?
Was Wasserman-Schulz involved with or knowledgeable in the murder of Seth Rich?
Was Wasserman-Schulz (who has close ties to Israel) knowledgeable that the Israeli-based ‘bomb threats’ on Jewish Center’s in America were the organized and purposeful work of Israelis?
I know this does not directly relate to Europe, but in one way it does- in that Wasserman-Schulz is no different than countless other Progressive bureaucratic functionaries who hold office in Democracies across the West while having no loyalty or shared identity with those countries. Wasserman-Schulz doesn’t consider herself part of the same ‘shared honor group’ as normal Americans anymore than she considers herself a dachsund. She identifies herself first and foremost as (politically) a ‘global citizen’ and ‘Progressive’, (religiously and ethnically) a Jew, and (in our modern Victimhood culture) a ‘woman and feminist’. I truly believe she would toss our children into boiling water if benefited her and any of those overlapping identities.
Its important we are always on offense and continually do everything humanly possible to spread stories like this. That is how our enemies have made so much progress against us- by controlling the media narrative and relentlessly focusing on ‘scandals’.
In this case the shoe is on the other foot, and in this case it actually looks to be accurate too, as it seems very clear Wasserman-Schulz is in up to her peroxide-blonde hair in nasty, illegal duplicity.
Trump may not end up draining the Swamp as we hoped, but if this disgusting creature can be tranquilized and sent back to her original home, it will be one small victory and be a big net positive for America.
Editor’s Note: Big thanks to Steve and others for continuing to update this story below! Let’s keep our eyes focused on how this evolving situation unfolds. It seems as though it could have large implications for the power structures of modern American politics.
