Some most fascinating pop trivia about the Clinton's is the whole "Pardongate" debacle, where upon Bill Clinton's exit from the White House he pardoned hundreds of criminals. While there is plenty of controversial umph across the board when you look at the list, the most glaring of the lot is the list of Marxist "FALN Terrorists". Also included there was the pardoning of openly Marxist Weather Underground members. And now today we have this Marxist & BLA inspired Black Lives Matter movement, which Hillary has been placating.

FALN:



The Fuerzas Armadas de Liberación Nacional (English: Armed Forces of National Liberation, FALN) was a Puerto Rican clandestine paramilitary organization that, through direct action, advocated complete independence for Puerto Rico. At the time of its dissolution, the FALN was responsible for more than 120 bomb attacks on United States targets between 1974 and 1983.

The FALN was led by Filiberto Ojeda Ríos, who was one of the FBI's most wanted criminals. The group served as the predecessor of the Boricua Popular Army. Several of the organization's members were arrested and convicted for conspiracy to commit robbery and for firearms and explosives violations. On August 11, 1999 then United States President Bill Clinton offered clemency to sixteen of the convicted militants under the condition that they renounce any kind of violent manifestation. This decision drew criticism towards the Clinton administration from figures that include the Office of the United States Attorney, the FBI, and the United States Congress.

TERRORISTS, TEXTBOOK:




Throughout the late 1970�s and mid-1980�s the Armed Forces of Puerto Rican National Liberation ("FALN" or in Spanish, Fuerzas Armadas Liberacion Nacional Puertoriquena) and the Popular Boricua Army (Ejercito Popular Boricua), commonly known as the Macheteros, claimed responsibility for numerous bombings and robberies, causing a reign of terror in both the United States and Puerto Rico. The FALN operated in the continental United States, while the Macheteros were active mostly in Puerto Rico.

United States law enforcement first learned of the existence of the FALN on October 26, 1974, the date the group issued a communiqu� taking credit for five bombings in New York. . Ultimately, over the next decade, FALN activities resulted in 72 actual bombings, 40 incendiary attacks, 8 attempted bombings and 10 bomb threats, resulting in 5 deaths, 83 injuries, and over $3 million in property damage. fas.org...





Officials shame NYC by backing terrorist in parade
The FALN is not a mere abstraction for city residents, as the group took credit for the infamous Jan. 24, 1975 bombing of historic Fraunces Tavern in the Financial District, a crime that killed four innocents and wounded more than 50 others.

Nearly eight years later, on New Year’s Eve 1982, the FALN placed five dynamite-laden bombs in Brooklyn and Manhattan, four of which exploded with devastating force.

Two of the bombs badly maimed three dedicated NYPD cops — the very law-enforcement officials Mark-Viverito presumably wants to help keep her, her constituents and other city residents safe from harm.



The FALN first surfaced on October 26, 1974, when five large bombs exploded in Manhattan—in the Wall Street area, in Rockefeller Center, and on Park Avenue—causing considerable property damage but no injuries. The FALN claimed responsibility for these acts, as it did later for bombings in Puerto Rico. Throughout the following year, the FALN boasted of a series of bombings, beginning on January 24 with a Wall Street explosion that killed four people and injured more than 50 and climaxing on October 27 with nine nearly simultaneous explosions in New York City, Washington, and Chicago that produced only property damage. Bombings continued sporadically thereafter.

PARDONGATE:


On August 11, 1999, President Bill Clinton offered conditional clemency to sixteen members of the FALN convicted for conspiracy to commit robbery, conspiracy to bomb-making, and sedition, as well as for firearms and explosives violations. None of the sixteen were convicted of bombings or any crime which injured another person, and all of the sixteen had served nineteen years or longer in prison, which was a longer sentence than such crimes typically received, according to the White House. Clinton offered clemency, on condition that the prisoners renounce violence, at the appeal of 10 Nobel Peace Prize laureates, President Jimmy Carter, the Archbishop of New York, and the Archbishop of Puerto Rico. The commutation was opposed by U.S. Attorney's Office, the FBI, and the Federal Bureau of Prisons and criticised by many including former victims of FALN terrorist activities, the Fraternal Order of Police,[14] and members of Congress. Hillary Clinton in her campaign for Senator also criticised the commutation, although she had earlier been supportive.

THE WEATHERMEN:

Bill's Pardongate also saw members of the infamously Marxist "Weather Underground" see early releases.


With revolutionary positions characterized by black power and opposition to the Vietnam War, the group conducted a campaign of bombings through the mid-1970s and took part in actions such as the jailbreak of Dr. Timothy Leary. The "Days of Rage", their first public demonstration on October 8, 1969, was a riot in Chicago timed to coincide with the trial of the Chicago Seven. In 1970 the group issued a "Declaration of a State of War" against the United States government, under the name "Weather Underground Organization".

The bombing campaign targeted mostly government buildings, along with several banks. The group stated that the government had been exploiting other nations by waging war as a means of solidifying America as a greater nation. Most were preceded by evacuation warnings, along with communiqués identifying the particular matter that the attack was intended to protest. No people were killed in any of their acts of property destruction, although three members of the group were killed in the Greenwich Village townhouse explosion. Years after the dissolution of Weatherman, former members Kathy Boudin and David Gilbert joined the Black Liberation Army in robbing a Brink's armored car in 1981, which resulted in the deaths of three people including Waverly Brown, the first black police officer on the Nyack police force.

For the bombing of the United States Capitol on March 1, 1971, they issued a communiqué saying that it was "in protest of the U.S. invasion of Laos". For the bombing of the Pentagon on May 19, 1972, they stated that it was "in retaliation for the U.S. bombing raid in Hanoi". For the January 29, 1975 bombing of the United States Department of State building, they stated that it was "in response to the escalation in Vietnam".
en.wikipedia.org...



The manifesto detailed Weatherman ideology and the means to create a Marxist revolution in “Amerika.” Some of its chapter titles include: “The Struggle for Socialist Self-Determination;” “Black Liberation Means Revolution;” “Anti-Imperialist Revolution and The United Front;” “The Revolutionary Youth Movement – Class Analysis;” and “Repression and Revolution.” The document called for a class war against America’s free market society. It talked of joining up with Marxist revolutions around the world, in China, in Cuba, and more. It called for the creation of a “Revolutionary Party.” Above all, it called for war against what Weatherman called “Amerika.”

Why is that significant today? Because the authors of the document were the leaders of Weatherman – Mark Rudd, Bill Ayres, Bernadine Dohrn, Jeff Jones, and others. Weatherman’s first public act was what it called “Days of Rage.” It called on students to leave their classrooms and engage in three days of violence and street demonstrations. They smashed windows of businesses and cars, and attacked police lines. Mark Rudd himself was arrested in Chicago while leading the violence. The result of the three days of violence was 287 people arrested, 800 automobiles and 600 windows were smashed. The combined bail was over $2 million. americanpolicy.org...



Linda Evans and Susan Rosenberg, members of the radical Weather Underground organization, both had sentences for weapons and explosives charges commuted: Evans served 16 years of her 40-year sentence, and Rosenberg served 16 of her 58 years. en.wikipedia.org...



Officials Criticize Clinton's Pardon of an Ex-Terrorist
An unusual combination of New York political and law enforcement leaders have condemned former President Bill Clinton's pardon of Susan L. Rosenberg, a one-time member of the Weather Underground terrorist group who was charged in the notorious 1981 Brink's robbery in Rockland County that left a guard and two police officers dead.

Mayor Rudolph W. Giuliani, a Republican, and United States Senator Charles E. Schumer, a Democrat, were among those who criticized the pardon, as did Bernard B. Kerik, New York City's police commissioner, and David Trois, a Rockland County police union official.

''It sickened me,'' Mr. Kerik said yesterday of the pardon, one of 140 granted Saturday, the final day of Mr. Clinton's tenure.

BLACK LIVES MATTER:

With FALN now 'ancient history', today the big ordeal that is widespread rampant across America is Black Lives Matter. BLM's founders are openly Marxist, and their 'patron saint' is none other than Assata Shakur, who is on the FBI's Most Wanted Terrorists List for bombings for numerous crimes including the murder of police. Her crimes so heinous that even Obama's FBI added her to the List. She has been living in Cuba for decades under political asylum, after escaping from prison in 1984.




Assata Shakur
Assata Olugbala Shakur (born JoAnne Deborah Byron; July 16, 1947), whose married name was Chesimard, is an African-American activist and member of the former Black Panther Party (BPP) and Black Liberation Army (BLA). Between 1971 and 1973, Shakur was convicted of several crimes and was the subject of a multistate manhunt.

In May 1973, Shakur was involved in a shootout on the New Jersey Turnpike, in which she was accused of killing New Jersey State Trooper Werner Foerster and grievously assaulting Trooper James Harper. Former BLA member Zayd Malik Shakur was also killed in the incident, and Shakur was wounded. Between 1973 and 1977, Shakur was indicted in relation to six other incidents—charged with murder, attempted murder, armed robbery, bank robbery, and kidnapping—resulting in three acquittals and three dismissals. In 1977, she was convicted of the first-degree murder of Foerster and of seven other felonies related to the shootout.

Shakur was incarcerated in several prisons in the 1970s. She escaped from prison in 1979 and fled to Cuba in 1984 after living as a fugitive for a few years, and received political asylum. She has been living in Cuba ever since. Since May 2, 2005, the FBI has classified her as a domestic terrorist and offered a $1 million reward for assistance in her capture. On May 2, 2013, the FBI added her to the Most Wanted Terrorist List; the first woman to be listed. On the same day, the New Jersey Attorney General offered to match the FBI reward, increasing the total reward for her capture to $2 million.


With the BLA's Shakur foreshadowing todays BLM, is no shocker that BLM doesn't make targeting policy their agenda, but rather they put all of the blame on cops themselves. Likewise, it's no wonder Obama & Hillary support BLM as it keeps the public focus off the real reason behind the economic disparities and the over-policing of the black community: The War On Drugs (WOD).

As a result of this approach, it's enraged major sections of the black community pitting them against the cops themselves (enforcers of federal policy), and even whites in general. Quite predictable results really, and most effective so far.



BLM and their like-minded protestors been the major players in the numerous assaults and even rioting at Trump Rallies across American this year. THis is no surprise given their brand of non-anti-policy rhetoric, and how the movement already bears all of the hallmarks of being a fully matured Extremist Hate Group.



Mass Murder & Rioting stemming from all of this has been observed on multiple occasions just this summer alone. Yet we have had Obama nor Hillary publicly denounce the BLM or these methods not one single time.






Black Vanderbilt professor says Black Lives Matter movement is ‘pure Marxism’
A black law professor at Vanderbilt University believes last week’s cop killings at a Black Lives Matter rally in Dallas should signify the end of the movement, saying it’s a Marxist uprising that’s become a “very destructive force in America.”

“It’s not really addressing the real problems affecting African Americans,” Carol Swain, a prominent Christian conservative, told CNN, Campus Reform reported. “It’s misleading black people. It needs to go.”

She urged CNN viewers to go to the official Black Lives Matter organization’s website to read “what they’re really about.” “It’s pure Marxism; it talks about state violence, genocide; all of those are buzzwords that are quite destructive,” she said.



THE HILLARY:

Now in fairness, many from the BLM front aren't currently too fond of Hillary. But considering her Marxist roots, and her recent tribalistic attempts in appealing to the extremist contingents of those inspired by BLM rhetoric, in trying to smear Donald Trump and his supporters as "racists", she's all in on running her campaign as a racist front in expectations that blacks will resonate with such. Luckily, despite the faults of the BLM organizers and their apparent race war agenda, not all of the black folks on the ground are buying it and neither should anybody else.

In closing, with the Clinton's we have a clear history of them sympathizing with domestic Communist terrorist organizations, of the explosively murderous varieties. And now today we have a new domestic Marxist terrorist group inspired radicals, where although shes lacking in unified love from their ranks, she wont denounce the ugliest of methods arising from all of it. Instead, lately she's been working overtime to appeal to the most extremist elements behind the worst case examples it has produced. I argue she's just playing out her Marxist notion of the Black Vote being "Human Capitol" (to be exploited), where in appealing to the most primal instincts therein shes ensuring to repeat the Clinton's past of pardoning textbook terrorist individuals erupting from violently extremist Marxist inspired groups.

Yes,
spot on.
This is the real deal that you are discussing here.
Massive foreign influence/ focused capital infusions
for a long,long while.
Intelligence Agencies , and Justice Departments
insidiously infiltrated and all.

Can I go back to my "ignorance is bliss"

Actually, I admire their energy. But not their methods in print or in climatic hands on results. If they HQ would just shift all the dialog against the War On Drugs, which is an actual achievable end game (not requiring mass murder & riots), then I'd go out there and fight with them. I despise that they aren't doing that but instead creating a predictable race war that could take decades to repair if the HQ succeeds.

I think that is a very opinionated topic. It's not the name that I think stirs most people up. But their interpretation of the message. I'll categorize myself into not knowing what their intended message is, all I have seen is the news and results of their message.

Also, while I understand their sentiment to police officers, the message I have heard from the group on police (maybe factions not widely supported) are very hateful.

Please understand I am trying to look at them with an open mind, but usually a group trying to fight hate with hate just incites hate. We have enough.
