Spokane, Washington NAACP President Just Pretended To Be Black… Is Really White… And A Complete Nutjob

NAACP President Is Busted As Fraud; She’s Actually White And Born In Montana – Gateway Pundit

.

.
Fake Black Lives Matter –

Her parents say she’s been misrepresenting her race for years.

Rachel Dolezal got busted by a reporter on video:

.

.
Rachel Dolezal is president of the Spokane chapter of the NAACP and teaches African American culture at university.

KHQ reported:

There are questions about Spokane’s NAACP Chapter President, Rachel Dolezal. The city confirmed with KHQ she claimed to be of African-American descent on a city application to be on the Ombudsman commission. But we spoke with her parents today who say Rachel is white and has been misrepresenting her ethnicity for years.

Dolezal teaches African American Culture at Eastern Washington University as an adjunct instructor. Her blog also says she is an art instructor at North Idaho College, is an advisor for the NIC Black Student Association.

Dolezal made headlines back in February when she claimed someone had mailed racist and threatening letters to the NAACP post office box. KHQ managed to obtain a 38-page Spokane Police report about the investigation into that mail. Officers concluded that the mail had not been properly processed through the post office, and was likely put directly into the post office box, without being mailed at all. They said only a few people have access to the box: the USPS employees who work there, and the boxholder. Police said they do not believe the USPS employees put the mail there. The investigation continues.

More… Rachel Dolezal posed in native-wear with her family. She said she was born in a teepee.

Your Daley Gator Hillary-Is-Pure-Evil News Story O’ The Day

Shady Nigerian Official Gave Millions To Clinton Foundation While Hillary Covered For Boko Haram – Right Scoop

.

.
The Hillary scandals are getting so bad that it really does seem like we’re making them up, but we’re not. The latest is an attempt to solve the mystery behind why the government was so late to designating Boko Haram a “terrorist organization.” Unbelievably, it might have to do with a million dollar donor to the Clinton Foundation and his possible terrorist ties:

A conservative group is suing the State Department in an effort to find out whether the agency’s refusal to place Boko Haram on the terrorist watch list while Hillary Clinton was secretary of state had anything to do with the fact that a high-level Nigerian official was a major Clinton Foundation donor and close friend of the former president.

Citizens United, a conservative nonprofit, brought the case to court after the State Department ignored its request for records about the Chagoury Group, a sprawling Nigerian company headed by a Clinton friend and financial supporter of Clinton causes, Gilbert Chagoury.

Chagoury donated between $1 million and 5 million to the Clinton Foundation, donor records show.

More than 30 days have passed since Citizens United first filed the lawsuit without a response of any kind from the State Department.

It gets worse:

In January 2010, Chagoury was removed from a private jet and questioned by federal agents for hours because his name had been added to the no-fly list, according to the Center for Public Integrity.

Although he was removed from the list before the U.S. government issued a formal, written apology, it is still unclear why he received that designation in the first place and how he was able to get his name off the no-fly list.

Sen. David Vitter, R-La., wrote a letter to Kerry in March raising concerns that Chagoury may have attempted to influence Clinton’s decision about whether to designate Boko Haram as a terrorist group.

Vitter demanded the same set of documents Citizens United now seeks.

Secretary of State John Kerry placed Boko Haram on the terrorist watch list in November 2013, shortly after coming into office.

“[G]iven the drastic foothold Boko Haram was allowed to gain prior to being designated an FTO, the nexus between the Department’s decision against designating Boko Haram as an FTO and connections to outside groups should be brought forward,” Vitter wrote.

Vitter said he had obtained evidence demonstrating “that multiple Department employees who were directly involved in the decision against designating Boko Haram as an FTO, including the Office Coordinator for Counterterrorism, have been Clinton Foundation employees.”

Again, just how many damn “coincidences” do we have to face before we admit that something very corrupt went on at the Clinton Foundation while Hillary was at the State Department?!

Hitlery’s State Department Accused Of Covering Up Sex Crimes Investigation (Video)

Ugly: State Department Scandal Deepens Amidst New Sordid Allegations – Townhall

.

.
To be clear, we’re talking about the most recent mess at State – not the lethal parade of failures known as “Benghazi.” Keeping these scandals straight is getting exhausting. Katie wrote yesterday about CBS News’ report on damning findings of an Inspector General investigation into Hillary Clinton’s State Department. The basics:

CBS News has uncovered documents that show the State Department may have covered up allegations of illegal and inappropriate behavior within their ranks. The Diplomatic Security Service, or the DSS, is the State Department’s security force, charged with protecting the secretary of state and U.S. ambassadors overseas and with investigating any cases of misconduct on the part of the 70,000 State Department employees worldwide… according to an internal State Department Inspector General’s memo, several recent investigations were influenced, manipulated, or simply called off. The memo obtained by CBS News cited eight specific examples. Among them: allegations that a State Department security official in Beirut “engaged in sexual assaults” on foreign nationals hired as embassy guards and the charge and that members of former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s security detail “engaged prostitutes while on official trips in foreign countries” – a problem the report says was “endemic.” The memo also reveals details about an “underground drug ring” was operating near the U.S. Embassy in Baghdad and supplied State Department security contractors with drugs.

So we have a drug ring, an “endemic” prostitution problem among Hillary Clinton’s security detail, and pattern of alleged sexual assault in Beirut (where, by the way, our embassy astoundingly isn’t up to snuff on security measures), investigations into which were manipulated or terminated by State Department higher-ups. As we know from the Benghazi matter, they’re hyper-sensitive about bad political optics. The CBS News story also mentioned the IG’s discovery that one US Ambassador “routinely ditched” security to solicit prostitutes in a public park. The Ambassador in question was recalled to Washington, then sent on his merry way by by Undersecretary of State Patrick Kennedy – a familiar name from the Benghazi imbroglio. It gets worse. The ambassador in question is also alleged to have solicited sexual acts from “minor children,” according to NBC News:

The ambassador who came under investigation “routinely ditched his protective security detail in order to solicit sexual favors from both prostitutes and minor children,” according to documents obtained by NBC News…Former State Department investigator Aurelia Fedenisn has said that investigators dropped the ball in the case, and that a final report published in March of this year was “watered down,” according to her attorney. “She felt it was important that Congress get this information,” Fedenisn’s lawyer Cary Schulman told NBC News.

Did the State Department keep a known (or at least heavily suspected) pedophile on the job, try to block the investigation, then “water down” the final report? State denies any undue influence on internal probes, and the ambassador is decrying the allegations “smears.” Who is he? The New York Post unearths a name with deep financial ties to President Obama and Democrats:

A DS agent was called off a case against US Ambassador to Belgium Howard Gutman over claims that he solicited prostitutes, including minors. “The ambassador’s protective detail and the embassy’s surveillance detection team… were well aware of the behavior.” Undersecretary of State for Management Patrick Kennedy ordered the investigation ceased, and the ambassador remains in place, according to the memo. Gutman was a big Democratic donor before taking the post, having raised $500,000 for President Obama’s 2008 campaign and helping finance his inaugural.

Why did Kennedy “order the investigation ceased”? The Post story also notes that Clinton’s Secretary of State Cheryl Mills – you remember her, too, right? – personally involved herself in a separate investigation, effectively shutting it down.

Stunning Incompetence: Over 70 Workers Hired By TSA Were On Terrorism Watchlists

70+ Workers Hired By TSA Were On Terrorism Watchlists – Truth Revolt

.

.
The much-beleaguered Transportation Security Administration (TSA) is facing yet another crisis – its second in two weeks – after a new report from the inspector general’s office at the Department of Homeland Security discovered that the agency did not adequately screen 73 airport workers who had been placed on terrorism-related watch lists.

Far from inspiring confidence, the inspector general’s report portrays the TSA as being at the mercy of complex regulations, a deficit of information from other agencies, and bureaucratic entanglements that prevented the agency from verifying that the information they received on aviation workers was accurate.

Under the heading “What We Found” the report describes:

TSA’s multi-layered process to vet aviation workers for potential links to terrorism was generally effective… However, our testing showed that TSA did not identify 73 individuals with terrorism-related category codes because TSA is not authorized to receive all terrorism-related information under current interagency watchlisting policy.

In addition to not being aware that 73 airport employees were on terrorism watch lists, the report also found that the TSA is also lacking accurate information about the criminal history and legal status of other employees who work in restricted areas.

The report explains:

TSA had less effective controls in place for ensuring that aviation workers 1) had not committed crimes that would disqualify them from having unescorted access to secure airport areas, and 2) had lawful status and were authorized to work in the United States. In general, TSA relied on airport operators to perform criminal history and work authorization checks, but had limited oversight over these commercial entities. Thus, TSA lacked assurance that it properly vetted all credential applications.

The TSA apparently wasn’t even able to fully verify the identities of their employees because records sometimes omitted a candidate’s full name or social security number.

Further, thousands of records used for vetting workers contained potentially incomplete or inaccurate data, such as an initial for a first name and missing social security numbers. TSA did not have appropriate edit checks in place to reject such records from vetting.

This latest outrage comes on the heels of an internal investigation released last week by the Department of Homeland Security which revealed that the TSA failed to detect banned weapons or imitation explosives 95% at America’s most highly-trafficked airports. This monumental failure rate led to the ouster of the TSA’s acting chief, Melvin Carraway.

In an official response to the report, the TSA promised to screen workers against a more inclusive database by the end of 2015.

Hitlery’s ‘No Ceilings’ Women’s Empowerment Project Accepted $5 Million From Sexual Abuser

Hillary’s ‘No Ceilings’ Project Accepted $5 Million From Sexual Abuser – Daily Caller

.

.
Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton’s “No Ceilings” women’s empowerment project at the Clinton Foundation accepted a $5 million commitment last December from a Swiss billionaire even as his lawyers were fighting in federal court to hide his darkest secret – a long record of sexually abusing women.

The No Ceilings: The Full Participation Project is needed, according to the Bill, Hillary and Chelsea Clinton Foundation, because “even today, persistent stereotypes and barriers keep women from equal access, representation, and compensation in our communities and around the world.”

Hansjorg Wyss, a generous donor to major liberal groups like the Center for American Progress and longtime financial patron of Clinton Campaign Chairman John Podesta, also launched a “Women’s Equality Program” at his $2.1 billion Wyss Foundation. His net worth is estimated at $6.1 billion.

At issue in the federal district court case was a $1.5 million settlement of a suit brought by Jacqueline Long, a Colorado woman who charged that Wyss brutally and sexually abused her for years while serving as his employee.

Long, a former development officer at the HJW Foundation, said she had to have sex with him in return for his grants to non-profits that focused on at-risk youth and sex trafficking, causes to which she was passionately devoted.

“He was not interested in these programs,” Long told the Daily Caller News Foundation in an exclusive interview. “He was only doing it in reward for my having sex with him. It was a tool for leverage.”

In the court pleadings, Wyss’s lawyers hinted at the severity of the sex abuse, stating, “The agreement at issue are (sic) both highly confidential and relate to extremely private matters.”

The Clinton Foundation repeatedly declined to respond to TheDCNF questions about the Wyss gift and the non-profit’s vetting process of its donors. Earlier this year, Charity Navigator, a philanthropy watchdog group, put the Clinton Foundation on its “watch list” for troubled non-profits.

Viveca Novak, the communications director for the non-partisan Center for Responsive Politics, told TheDCNF the Wyss gift “does make one question what kind of vetting process the Clinton Foundation has in accepting donations.”

The Wyss Foundation also did not respond to TheDCNF telephone requests for comment.

Long is not the only woman to claim sexual abuse by Wyss. Diane E. Bailey, another former Wyss employee, filed a federal lawsuit against Wyss in 2000, charging that he created a hostile work environment for women at Synthes, then a U.S. subsidiary of a Swiss medical devices corporation. Wyss served as CEO at its U.S. headquarters in West Chester, PA. He was also Synthes’ major stockholder.

Bailey described an incident in which Wyss showed Synthes’ employees a slide show from a vacation and repeatedly pointed out pictures of male sex organs that were included.

Although Bailey lost her case claiming employment discrimination, the judge noted that the sexually offensive incidents she cited were “undisputed by the defendants.” The defendants included Wyss personally, his company and his foundations.

Wyss is no stranger to federal judges or prosecutors. In 2011, Synthes attorneys settled multiple criminal charges brought against it in 2009 by the Department of Justice after the firm conducted illegal spinal medical tests that killed four people on operating tables.

Wyss’s top four executives went to jail and his company was forced to pay $23 million in fines for violating the Food, Drug and Cosmetic Act. But Wyss was never indicted, even though he was named as “Person No. 7” in the original indictment, which said company memos showed Wyss authorized the tests to go forward without FDA approval.

Wyss sold Synthes to Johnson & Johnson for $21.3 billion in 2011, a transaction that was key to his now being ranked by Forbes magazine as the 204th richest man in the world.

Long said she was “shocked and devastated” when she learned of the Wyss contribution to the No Ceilings program that Clinton reportedly views as her signature achievement for women at the Clinton Foundation.

Long sent the Clinton Foundation a letter and supporting documents last December to warn the former secretary of state and first lady about Wyss. The envelope, which had been opened, was returned to Long. Written in bold on the outside were the words, “Will Not Accept.”

.

.
Russell Bryant, whose wife Joan died on the operating table while undergoing Synthes’ illegal operations and who is suing Wyss, among others, said he believed the Clinton Foundation was taking “dirty money.”

“His philanthropy is totally hypocritical. His motive for giving money is to cover up his bad behavior. I think the Clinton Foundation would accept anything from anybody and they close their eyes from where the money comes from,” he told TheDCNF.

Long’s relationship with Wyss began as a friendship, then progressed to jobs he arranged for her with his foundation and a California winery he owns.

At the foundation, Long supported Colorado groups devoted to two causes that were her passion, homeless youth and sex trafficking of women and girls.

The relationship deteriorated over time, however, as Wyss first pressured her to have sex, then advanced to physical and sexual abuse, according to Long.

Long filed a police report with the Morris Township Police Department on April 3, 2011, following an especially brutal sexual assault by Wyss at the Governor Morris Hotel when she tried to break off the relationship.

“He sexually assaulted me – me screaming no (to) stop it,” she wrote in her own hand writing in a statement to police that was obtained by TheDCNF.

She charged that he “almost suffocated me by putting his fist in my mouth. I struggled and pushed. I thought for sure he was going to kill me,” she wrote to police. She also charged he roughly penetrated her with a vibrator.

Long filed a 2012 EEOC complaint against Wyss, charging she “has been the victim of sexual harassment, a sexually hostile work environment, quid pro quo discrimination and sexual discrimination,” according to a copy of the complaint obtained by TheDCNF.

Prior to the final settlement of the case, M. Ryan DiMaria, Long’s attorney, warned Wyss lawyers in a May 8, 2013, letter that physical abuse was the key issue.

“The graphic allegations of sexual abuse, sadomasochism, and significantly unique fetish interests of Mr. Wyss have to be heard by the court,” DiMaria argued.

The four deaths caused by the illegal medical testing and the repeated allegations of sexual abuse of women contradict the carefully cultivated image of Wyss as a compassionate philanthropist. He is a major donor to 186 liberal groups, bestowing more than $132 million on them since 2002, according to his Form 990 filings with the IRS.

He gave $125 million to Harvard University to establish the Wyss Center for Biologically Inspired Engineering in 2009, the same year Synthes was indicted by the Justice Department. He doubled that contribution to $250 million in 2013.

The Wyss connection to Podesta included $6.2 million in contributions to the Center for American Progress. Podesta was CAP’s founding chairman, while Wyss was a member of its board of directors.

Podesta was President Bill Clinton’s White House chief of staff and was a special counselor on environmental issues to President Barack Obama. Podesta left the Obama White House to serve as chairman of Clinton’s 2016 presidential campaign.

Immediately prior to joining the Obama White House, Podesta served as a “consultant” to Wyss, receiving $87,000 in compensation.

Court documents show Wyss was obsessed with keeping the $1.5 million settlement with Long out of public records.

“Long and her counsel acknowledge that the confidentiality of this agreement is of the utmost importance and without their unequivocal commitment to keep this agreement and the negotiations preceding this agreement confidential, the defendants would not have entered into this agreement,” the Wyss attorneys said in the final settlement, a copy of which was obtained by TheDCNF.

Wyss was known for poor treatment of women during his years as CEO of Synthes. A former Synthes consulting surgeon who was a Wyss friend told TheDCNF that “their company was not known for being a company sensitive to women and women’s issues.”

“There were lots of dirty jokes. Any time you mentioned a ‘screw,’ there would always be a little giggle,” he said.

Another former Synthes employee said the entire executive floor was comprised of men except for one woman. All of the secretaries were women.

“When I was there, what I do know is that he would brag about screwing all the secretaries,” the former employee told theDCNF.

People who know Long said she remained at the foundation despite the abuse because she felt she was able to accomplish a greater good: helping groups committed to homelessness and sex trafficking.

At one point, Long turned to Wyss for financial aid for her daughter Callie, who suffered an ultimately terminal drug addiction. Long said Wyss gave her checks for her family following rounds of sex.

Anne Harris, a development director for Urban Peaks, a Colorado nonprofit that focused on youth homelessness, told TheDCNF Long secured Wyss funding for the group and “was very passionate. There was a personal desire to be connected to this mission.”

Harris said Long “invited us to come up to Boulder and was going to meet Hansjorg. I was really impressed with Jackie’s diligence and persistence because it wasn’t his [Wyss’s] priority. I, for one, was really grateful for her vision.”

Long said the pattern of abusive sex, then gifts was “very common behavior with Hansjorg,” Long said. “He does something horrific, then purges himself by giving to a foundation, tries to give you gifts.”

Tom Koby, a former chief of police in Boulder, Colo., said Long was key to helping law enforcement agencies focused on sex trafficking.

“She is, I believe, a little angel,” he told TheDCNF.

Koby became a Long confidant as her relationship with Wyss worsened. “She related to me that the relationship had not only deteriorated, but there developed some physical abuse,” he said.

“Part of why Jackie continued in the relationship with Hans was her passion about doing some good through these organizations,” Koby said.

“I just looked at Jackie and said, ‘look Jackie, if those things are happening, that’s evil at play,” he advised. “You need to get out of that relationship.”

Federal Judge Throws Out New York Teachers’ Exam Because RAAAAAACISM!

NY Teacher Exam Thrown Out For Being Discriminatory – Daily Caller

.

.
A federal judge in New York has struck down a test used by New York City to vet potential teachers, finding the test of knowledge illegally discriminated against racial minorities due to their lower scores.

At first glance, the city’s second Liberal Arts and Science Test (LAST-2) seems fairly innocuous. Unlike the unfair literacy tests of Jim Crow, LAST-2 was given to every teaching candidate in New York, and it was simply a test to make sure that teachers had a basic high school-level understanding of both the liberal arts and the sciences.

One sample question from the test asked prospective educators to identify the mathematical principle of a linear relationship when given four examples; another asked them to read four passages from the Constitution and identify which illustrated checks and balances. Besides factual knowledge, the test also checks basic academic skills, such as reading comprehension and the ability to read basic charts and graphs.

Nevertheless, this apparently neutral subject matter contained an insidious kernel of racism, because Hispanic and black applicants had a passage rate only 54 to 75 percent of the passage rate for whites.

Once their higher failure rate was established, the burden shifted to New York to prove that LAST-2 measured skills that were essential for teachers and therefore was justified in having a racially unequal outcome. While it might seem obvious that possessing basic subject knowledge is a key skill for a teacher, District Judge Kimba Wood said the state hadn’t met that burden.

“Instead of beginning with ascertaining the job tasks of New York teachers, the two LAST examinations began with the premise that all New York teachers should be required to demonstrate an understanding of the liberal arts,” Wood wrote in her opinion, according to The New York Times.

LAST-2 hasn’t been used in New York since 2012, but the ruling will still have repercussions. Minorities who failed the exam (who number in the thousands) may be owed years of back pay totaling millions of dollars, and those who were relegated to substitute teaching jobs could be promoted to having their own classrooms. In addition, while Wood’s ruling only applies to New York City, the test was used statewide, and it could serve as a precedent for further lawsuits.

The ruling could also pave the way for another ruling finding New York’s current teacher test, the Academic Literacy Skills Test (ALST), to be discriminatory as well. That test is even harder than LAST-2, with a strong focus on literacy skills such as writing and reading comprehension, and like LAST-2 it has a very large gap in scores between whites and minorities. A lawsuit, once again being heard by Wood, is already pending, with the plaintiffs arguing that there is no clear evidence strong literacy skills are essential for a teacher.
