Leaked Email Reveals Left’s Long Term Strategy to Control the USA

A memo has leaked recently as part of the WikiLeaks releases from the account of Hillary Clinton’s campaign chairman, John Podesta. In it, the dark money Clinton talks about is actually evidenced — and it is being funneled to the left in an effort to fundamentally transform the United States.

The Daily Caller reported:

The memo went out to several major Clinton donors, including George Soros, Peter Lewis, Steve Bing and Herb and Marion Sandler, giving them a preview of an upcoming September 27, 2007 meeting between the donors and Podesta, who was president of the Soros-funded Center for American Progress at that time.
“Our meeting in New York brings together the most generous funders of progressive causes and progressive infrastructure in the country,” the memo read.

“We sit in September 2007, in a much different position than August 2003, when the same group literally jump-started an independent effort to change course in this country.”

From there, the memo goes on to illustrate the steps the left planned to take to divide the country and push their radical agenda.

“Control the political discourse” via a “strong echo chamber.”

So much effort over the past few years has been focused on better coordinating, strengthening, and developing progressive institutions and leaders.

Now that this enhanced infrastructure is in place—grassroots organizing; multi-issue advocacy groups; think tanks; youth outreach; faith communities; micro-targeting outfits; the netroots and blogosphere—we need to better utilize these networks to drive the content of politics through a strong ‘echo chamber’ and message delivery system.

As the Daily Caller noted, Obama adviser Ben Rhodes boasted about the use of the media as an “echo chamber” to frame the disastrous Iran Nuclear deal. Guess who created that echo chamber? It was a liberal non-profit that requested funding from none other than Soros.

Get out the Vote — i.e., the progressive vote.

“Non-partisan voter registration can be highly effective in delivering progressive voters to the polls,” the memo stated. “The Sandler family and OSI are already deeply involved in funding organizations to do this work in communities of color and with respect to unmarried women.”
“Securing advantageous demographic and geographical trends” for progressives.

The memo went on about the importance of essentially dividing and conquering. They want to divide the country along various demographic lines (race, gender, age, education level, economic strata, etc.) and secure them for the progressive movement. Millennials, women, and Latinos were seen as especially important to target.

While the memo specifically targeted Latinos, progressives think they’ve got blacks locked down. The memo described blacks as the “most reliable bloc in the Democratic camp.”

This is what the left is doing to “fundamentally transform” America and it is truly disturbing. You can take a look at the full memo below:

Billionaire investor George Soros has confirmed he wants to bring down Europe’s borders, following the accusation made last week by Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orban.

Last week, Mr Orban accused Mr Soros – who was born in Hungary – of deliberately encouraging the migrant crisis.

“This invasion is driven, on the one hand, by people smugglers, and on the other by those (human rights) activists who support everything that weakens the nation-state,” Mr Orban said.

“This Western mindset and this activist network is perhaps best represented by George Soros.”

Mr Soros has now issued an email statement to Bloomberg Business, claiming his foundations help “uphold European values”, while Mr Oban’s actions in strengthening the Hungarian border and stopping a huge migrant influx “undermine those values.”
“His plan treats the protection of national borders as the objective and the refugees as an obstacle,” Mr Soros added. “Our plan treats the protection of refugees as the objective and national borders as the obstacle.”

Last month, Mr Orban accused pro-immigration non-governmental organisations (NGOs) of “drawing a living from the immigration crisis,” singling out those funded by Mr Soros.

George Soros is a firm backer of transnational bodies such as the European Union, and his Open Society Foundation (OSF) provides assistance for pro-migration activists. He is well-known for his support for “progressive” causes such as the Centre for American Progress, Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama.

The OSF website explains: “We believe that migration and asylum policy should be grounded in economic and demographic realities, not driven by temporary political considerations or popular misconceptions. In Europe, many of our civil society partners are raising their voices demanding a common European approach in line with international human rights commitments.”

Mr Orban said in an interview last month that immigration and multiculturalism are endangering Europe’s “Christian roots” and creating “parallel societies”.

Europeans, he said, should “stick to our Christian values” and “Europe can be saved,” but only if they “take seriously the traditions, the Christian roots and all the values that are the basis of the civilisation of Europe.”

Illegal Immigrant Tapped for Clinton ‘Dreamer’ Campaign Tied to Soros-Funded Voter Effort

Clinton anSoros-backed campaigns have similar goals

BY: Joe Schoffstall

An illegal immigrant who was tapped by the Hillary Clinton campaign for a new effort to register Latino voters is tied to a multi-million dollar voter registration effort funded by George Soros.

The Clinton campaign announced the “Mi Sueño, Tu Voto”—or “My Dream, Your Vote”—program on Sunday. The program uses stories about illegal immigrant children who are prohibited from voting to inspire Latino voters to register and vote against Donald Trump and Republicans, the Associated Press reported.

Astrid Silva, the 28-year-old illegal immigrant who railed against Donald Trump during a prime-time speaking slot at the Democratic National Convention, was featured in the Clinton campaign’s press release announcing the new “Dreamer” effort.

Silva said in the press release that while young illegal immigrants may not have the right to vote, the new effort will “help ensure that our stories are heard and it will send a clear signal to Donald Trump that we cannot be silenced.”

Silva is the organizing director of the Progressives Leadership Alliance of Nevada, a social and environmental justice group that is already involved in a massive campaign to register 400,000 Hispanic voters for the November election. That effort, known as the “Families Fight Back” campaign, is almost entirely funded by liberal billionaire George Soros.

“The intense anti-immigrant and anti-Muslim rhetoric that has been fueled by the Republican primary is deeply offensive,” Soros told the Hill in early March. “It is harmful to our democracy and our national interests. There should be consequences for the outrageous statements and proposals that we’ve regularly heard.”

The Families Fight Back campaign was announced in March by activist leaders from Nevada, Colorado, and Florida, and the immigration groups Center for Community Change, Latino Victory Project, and America’s Voice.

“We are very aware that every day that our families are on the verge of being separated is a day that we have to fight for them,” Silva said at its launch. “We need people to register, to vote, to become citizens. We want to make sure that the community understands their power, has access to the tools they need, and know that their responsibility to our country needs to be met.”

The Immigrant Voters Win PAC was then established to fund the Families Fight Back campaign. Soros and other liberal donors vowed to spend $15 million on the effort.

Soros cut a $3 million check to the PAC on March 11. He was the only funder of the PAC until late May when the Civic Participation Action Fund, a group that seeks to advance “racial equality, economic opportunity, and civic engagement,” added a $1 million donation.

Silva did not return a request for comment by press time.

Clinton Cash: Khizr Khan’s Deep Legal, Financial Connections to Saudi Arabia, Hillary’s Clinton Foundation Tie Terror, Immigration, Email Scandals Together

Khizr Khan, the Muslim Gold Star father that the mainstream media and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton have been using to criticize Donald J. Trump, has deep ties to the government of Saudi Arabia—and to international Islamist investors through his own law firm. In addition to those ties to the wealthy Islamist nation, Khan also has ties to controversial immigration programs that wealthy foreigners can use to essentially buy their way into the United States—and has deep ties to the “Clinton Cash” narrative through the Clinton Foundation.
Khan and his wife Ghazala Khan both appeared on stage at the Democratic National Convention to attack, on Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton’s behalf, Donald Trump—the Republican nominee for president. Their son, U.S. Army Captain Humayun Khan, was killed in Iraq in 2004. Khizr Khan, in his speech to the DNC, lambasted Donald Trump for wanting to temporarily halt Islamic migration to America from countries with a proven history of exporting terrorists.

Since then, Clinton operative George Stephanopoulos—who served as a senior adviser to the president in Bill Clinton’s White House and is a Clinton Foundation donor as well as a host on the ABC network—pushed Trump on the matter in an interview. Trump’s comments in that interview have sparked the same mini-rebellion inside his party, in the media and across the aisle that has happened many times before. The usual suspects inside the GOP, from former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush to Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) to House Speaker Paul Ryan to Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell to Ohio Gov. John Kasich, have condemned Trump in one way or another. The media condemnation has been swift and Democrats, as well their friends throughout media, are driving the train as fast as they can.

But until now, it looked like the Khans were just Gold Star parents who the big bad Donald Trump attacked. It turns out, however, in addition to being Gold Star parents, the Khans are financially and legally tied deeply to the industry of Muslim migration–and to the government of Saudi Arabia and to the Clintons themselves.

Khan, according to Intelius as also reported by Walid Shoebat, used to work at the law firm Hogan Lovells, LLP, a major D.C. law firm that has been on retainer as the law firm representing the government of Saudi Arabia in the United States for years. Citing federal government disclosure forms, the Washington Free Beacon reported the connection between Saudi Arabia and Hogan Lovells a couple weeks ago.

“Hogan Lovells LLP, another U.S. firm hired by the Saudis, is registered to work for the Royal Embassy of Saudi Arabia through 2016, disclosures show,” Joe Schoffstall of the Free Beacon reported.

The federal form filed with the Department of Justice is a requirement under the Foreign Agents Registration Act of 1938, which makes lobbyists and lawyers working on behalf of foreign governments and other agents from abroad with interests in the United States register with the federal government.

The government of Saudi Arabia, of course, has donated heavily to the Clinton Foundation.

“The Kingdom of Saudi Arabia has given between $10 and $25 million to the foundation while Friends of Saudi Arabia has contributed between $1 and $5 million,” Schoffstall wrote.

Trump, of course, has called on Hillary Clinton to have the Clinton Foundation return the money.

“Saudi Arabia and many of the countries that gave vast amounts of money to the Clinton Foundation want women as slaves and to kill gays,” Trump wrote in a Facebook post back in June, according to Politico. “Hillary must return all money from such countries!”

“Crooked Hillary says we must call on Saudi Arabia and other countries to stop funding hate,” Trump posted in a separate Facebook posting at the time. “I am calling on her to immediately return the $25 million plus she got from them for the Clinton Foundation!”

Of course, to this day, Hillary Clinton and her Clinton Foundation has kept the money from the Saudi Arabian government.

Schoffstall’s piece in the Washington Free Beacon also notes how Hogan Lovells lobbyist Robert Kyle, per Federal Election Commission (FEC) records, has bundled more than $50,000 in donations for Clinton’s campaign this year.

Khan’s connections with the Hogan Lovells firm run deep, according to a report from written by Katelyn Polantz.

“Many lawyers at Hogan Lovells remember the week in 2004 when U.S. Army Capt. Humayun Khan lost his life to a suicide bomber,” Polantz wrote. “Then-Hogan & Hartson attorneys mourned the death because the soldier’s father, Khizr Khan, a Muslim American immigrant, was among their beloved colleagues.”

Polantz wrote that Khan worked at the mega-D.C. law firm for years.

“Khan spent seven years, from 2000 to 2007, in the Washington, D.C., office of then-Hogan & Hartson,” Polantz wrote. “He served as the firm’s manager of litigation technology. Although he did not practice law while at Hogan, Khan was well versed in understanding the American courts system. On Thursday night, he described his late son dreaming of becoming a military lawyer.”

But representing the Clinton Foundation backing Saudi Arabian government and having one of its lobbyists bundle $50,000-plus for Clinton’s campaign are hardly the only places where the Khan-connected Hogan Lovells D.C. mega-firm brush elbows with Clinton Cash.

The firm also handles Hillary Clinton’s taxes and is deeply connected with the email scandal whereby when she was Secretary of State, Hillary Clinton set up a home-brew email server system that jeopardized classified information handling and was “extremely careless” according to FBI director James Comey.

“A lawyer at Hogan & Hartson [Howard Topaz] has been Bill and Hillary Clinton’s go-to guy for tax advice since 2004, according to documents released Friday by Hillary Clinton’s campaign,” The American Lawyer’s Nate Raymond wrote in 2008, as Hillary Clinton ran for president that year. “The Clintons’ tax returns for 2000-07 show combined earnings of $109 million, on which they paid $33 million in taxes. New York-based tax partner Howard Topaz has a broad tax practice, and also regularly advises corporations on M&A and executive compensation.”

Breitbart News’ Patrick Howley, in a deep investigative piece on Hillary Clinton’s email scandal, late last year uncovered how Topaz’s firm—which employed Khan while Topaz did Hillary Clinton’s taxes—is also connected to the email scandal.

“Topaz was a partner at Hogan & Hartson, which later merged to become known as Hogan Lovells, where Topaz continues to practice. The firm’s lawyers were major donors to Hillary Clinton’s first presidential campaign,” Howley wrote.

For her private email system, Clinton used a spam filtering program MX Logic.

“Hogan & Hartson handled the patent for MX Logic’s email-filtering program, which McAfee bought the small company for $140 million in 2009 in order to acquire,” Howley wrote. “The MX Logic company’s application for a trademark for its SPAMTRAQ program was filed in 2004 on Hogan & Hartson stationery and signed by a Hogan & Hartson attorney. Hogan & Hartson has been responsible for MX Logic annual reports. The email company’s Clinton links present more evidence that Clinton’s political and legal establishment was monitoring her private email use.”

If that all isn’t enough, that same Hogan & Hartson law firm—now Hogan Lovells—employed Loretta Lynch, the current Attorney General of the United States. Lynch infamously just a few weeks ago met with Bill Clinton, Hillary’s husband and the former president, on her private jet in Phoenix just before clearing Hillary Clinton of any wrongdoing when it came to her illicit private email server system.

Khan’s own website for his own personal law firm KM Khan Law Office shows he represents clients in the business of buying visas to enter the United States. One of his specific areas of practice, according to the website, is “E2 Treaty Investors, EB5 Investments & Related Immigration Services.”

Sen. Chuck Grassley, the chairman of the U.S. Senate’s Judiciary Committee, has detailed how the EB5 immigration program is “riddled with flaws and corruption.”

“Maybe it is only here on Capitol Hill—on this island surrounded by reality—that we can choose to plug our ears and refuse to listen to commonly accepted facts,” Grassley said in a statement earlier this year. “The Government Accountability Office, the media, industry experts, members of congress, and federal agency officials, have concurred that the program is a serious problem with serious vulnerabilities. Allow me to mention a few of the flaws.”

From there, Sen. Grassley listed out several of the “flaws” with the EB5 immigration program that Khan works in:

– Investments can be spent before business plans are approved.

– Regional Center operators can charge exorbitant fees of foreign nationals in addition to their required investments.

– Jobs created are not “direct” or verifiable jobs but rather are “indirect” and based on estimates and economic modeling.

– Jobs created by U.S. investors are counted by the foreign national when obtaining a green card, even if EB-5 money is only a fraction of the total invested.

– Investment funds are not adequately vetted.

– Gifts and loans are acceptable sources of funds from foreign nationals.

– The investment level has been stagnant for nearly 25 years.

– There’s no prohibition against foreign governments owning or operating regional centers or projects.

– Regional centers can be rented or sold without government oversight or approval.

– Regional centers don’t have to certify that they comply with securities laws.

– There’s no oversight of promoters who work overseas for the regional centers.

– There’s no set of sanctions for violations, no recourse for bad actors.

– There are no required background checks on anyone associated with a regional center.

– Regional centers draw Targeted Employment Area boundaries around poor areas in order to come in at a lower investment level, yet the jobs created are not actually created in those areas.

– Every Targeted Employment Area designation is rubberstamped by the agency.

– Adjudicators are pressured to get to a yes, especially for those politically connected.

– Visas are not properly scrutinized.

– Visas are pushed through despite security warnings.

– Files and applications lack basic and necessary information to monitor compliance.

– The agency does not do site visits for each and every project.

– There’s no transparency on how funds are spent, who is paid, and what investors are told about the projects they invest in.

That’s not to mention the fact that, according to Sen. Grassley, there have been serious national security violations in connection with the EB5 program that Khan works in and around already. In fact, the program—according to Grassley—was used by Middle Eastern operatives from Iran to attempt to illicitly enter the United States.

“There are also classified reports that detail the national security, fraud and abuse. Our committee has received numerous briefings and classified documents to show this side of the story,” Grassley said in the early February 2016 statement. “The enforcement arm of the Department of Homeland Security wrote an internal memo that raises significant concerns about the program. One section of the memo outlines concerns that it could be used by Iranian operatives to infiltrate the United States. The memo identifies seven main areas of program vulnerability, including the export of sensitive technology, economic espionage, use by foreign government agents and terrorists, investment fraud, illicit finance and money laundering.”

Maybe all of this is why–as Breitbart News has previously noted–the Democratic National Convention made absolutely no mention of the Clinton Foundation or Clinton Global Initiative. Hillary Clinton’s coronation ceremony spent exactly zero minutes of the four nights of official DNC programming talking about anything to do with perhaps one of the biggest parts of her biography.

Public have no right to know who is funding Hillary Clinton’s $60 million coronation at Democratic National Convention, party says in bid for secrecy on donors

The host committee for the Democratic National Convention wants to keep its donor list under wraps until after the convention even though a state open records agency has ordered its release.
A Philadelphia 2016 Host Committee lawyer told a judge Thursday the release of fundraising records could harm the organization’s last-minute efforts to seek donations and negotiate vendor contracts.
Lawyer David Pittinsky said those efforts were still ongoing even though the four-day convention starts Monday.
The host committee set out to raise about $60 million from private sources, but secured a $15 million line of credit from the city as a safety net. The committee must therefore file financial updates with the city.
Independent journalist Dustin Slaughter considers those filings public, and the state’s open records agency agreed with him last month. He said his interest in the event’s potential cost to the city stems from the fact the pope’s visit last year ultimately cost the city $8 million.
‘In light of the fact that the host committee is still short on its fundraising goals, that $15 million (loan) could still come into play. The public has a right to know what’s happening behind the scenes,’ Slaughter said after Thursday’s hearing.
A host committee spokeswoman said the group has raised $56 million in cash and pledges and $16 million worth of in-kind contributions.
‘The host committee’s fundraising has been on track and, moreover, successful, with no city dollars spent to cover any of our obligations,’ said Anna Adams-Sarthou, the committee’s communications director.
The committee appealed the open records ruling to city court, arguing that federal election law takes precedence and gives them until September to disclose their final numbers.

The GOP — rife with traitors

“and you, Brutus?” — Julius Caesar’s dying words in William Shakespeare’s play, Julius Caesar

Two thousand years ago Caesar was forewarned of his assassination in the Roman Senate. The Ides of March was the final nail in the coffin of democracy that would close for the next 1,500 years.

All these centuries later a New World Order (NWO) will bring a chilling autumn that threatens to winterkill personal liberty for generations.

Historians will look back at the early 21st Century and say that the relative harmony of the period was conjoined by a weak thread that snapped because of the loss of healthy nationalism, allowing a surge of Muslim immigration and terrorism to spread across Europe and North America.

Presumed Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump has come to prominence in the midst of this economic and social struggle. Will he be the leader that America needs to stem this dark tide?

Heaven knows he needs all the help he can get. Backstabbers have gathered within the GOP revealing an alliance not to the electorate but to policies that weaken us even as we face the enemy that exists within Islam. These Republicans quietly back the Democratic presumed presidential candidate, Hillary Clinton. They want her and not Trump to be America’s 45th president even though she used her tenure as President Barack Obama’s secretary of state to enrich herself by tens of millions of dollars and become Obama’s heir apparent. During this period her loyalty never wavers in a way that would impact her personal fortune.

A shocking number of Republicans secretly support Clinton as ordered by the real powerbrokers. Today’s political mutiny against Trump towers over Ted Kennedy’s 1980 challenge to President Jimmy Carter in his reelection bid, which Carter ended up losing to Ronald Reagan in 1980.

In 1980, an outsider who was a champion of America first, Ronald Reagan, had come to the political stage at a perfect moment and did as he promised, created jobs and rebuilt American confidence. It would be runaway naiveté to think that Trump is the next Reagan. But he offers hope like in Britain; that the voters will rise up and snap the chains to the New World Order before it is too late, before we have become enslaved by the opportunists on both sides of the Congressional aisle.

Optimists cross lines every day and the outcome could be much worse than the implosion of the Republican Party. We should fear Republican opposition that hands the presidency to Clinton. Clinton has proven herself to be incapable to telling the truth. She has a nose for money and as such is perhaps the worst hypocrite in government in the modern era. Her pleas for women’s rights in the face of accepting personal payout for the Clinton Foundation from oil-rich Middle East despots is just one example of how she sees her personal wealth grow with little regard for the nation’s economic health.

I predict that a Clinton victory on the heels of eight years of economic mismanagement by Obama will throw the U.S. economy into a deep recession. The trauma to the stock market because of a Clinton correction could lead to an economic depression where Clinton may have to declare martial law. This would mark the death of our personal liberties.

Not to harp on a Clinton victory, but as secretary of state she made dreadful judgements that cost lives. Lastly, President H. Clinton would stock the Supreme Court with liberal justices the likes of which we’ve never even contemplated.

Below is the United States’ trade deficit since 1950. One glance at it will show that American trade was stable until President Bill Clinton entered into the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) which came into force in January 1994. It has created what H. Ross Perot predicted in the 1992 presidential election, a “giant sucking sound” of jobs going south to the cheap labor markets of Mexico.

U.S. Balance of TradeNone of the above seems to matter to a group of Republicans in and out of office who has the audacity to rally under the banner of “Never Trump.

Last month The Hill ran the headline: “Never Trump plots its last stand.”

This cabal’s plot almost reads like Adolph Hitler’s “Night of the Long Knives,” which was his putsch to take dictatorial command of Germany and wage war.

Certainly, 2012 Republican nominee Mitt Romney is a crybaby when it comes to losing. Four years earlier Romney begged for Trump’s endorsement (which he received) as well as
Trump’s financial support in campaign contributions.

In March Romney said as part of his anti-Trump comments: “Here’s what I know. Donald Trump is a phony, fraud…”

Romney disagrees with more than 13 million GOP primary voters who voted for Trump. That total is more than any Republican has ever received.

The mutiny by so many establishment Republicans against Trump indicates there is more at stake than just envy or even fears that Trump may be a lousy President. Clinton could easily be a terrible president, too, and someone who may be under criminal investigation for the way she used her office to benefit the Clinton Foundation and line her pockets.

An opinion from the field

My eldest son, who taught in London’s inner city and then inside a compound in Jeddah during the Arab Spring, has seen a lot. He witnessed Saudi air strikes against Yemen. Today he teaches at a boarding school in Scotland, the country that was a deciding factor in Britain’s departure from the EU.

I spoke to him over the weekend. He said that the UK leaving the EU is only the latest in the war between globalists and nationalists.

“For the final time the world’s baby boomers are involved in a conflict that they may win,” he said adding that it is ironic that the generation that once demanded change is fighting to retain their status quo. As a result, neither nationalism nor Trump are yet defeated.

Yours in good times and bad,

Gowdy Blows Whistle on Sick Move Benghazi Committee Dems Did to Rig Outcome


Chairman of the Select Committee on Benghazi Trey Gowdy set the record straight when Rep. Elijah Cummings and other committee Democrats demanded they have a part in drafting the committee’s final report.

In a letter, Gowdy let committee members know that what they were trying to pull wasn’t going to get past him — at least not without his giving them a piece of his mind.

“It is mildly amusing that after two years of abject obstruction, after two years of not lifting a finger to assist the Majority with the investigation, after two years of doing everything in your power to prevent a report from being written, you now want to participate,” Gowdy wrote.
Gowdy accused the Democrats of habitually leaking information and mischaracterizing facts throughout the investigation.

“Any reasonable observer would conclude you want to ‘work’ on the report solely so you can leak and mischaracterize the new facts you now acknowledge have been found as a result of this investigation,” he said.

You can’t really argue with him on this point, because that’s exactly how it looks.
The former prosecutor also took a moment to refresh Cummings’ memory on just how much Democrats have obstructed the investigation and tried to discredit the committee. He explained several incidents in detail in his letter and even pointed out that in October 2015, all five of the Committee’s Democrat members voted to disband the Committee.

The tenacious representative also told Cummings that new information was uncovered despite his “best efforts to prevent it from happening.”

The Democrats’ attempt to subvert efforts to get at the truth were predictable, and while they might not have been able to subvert the investigation as they would have liked, they certainly earned an “A” for effort.

Their desire to now have input on the final draft still is little more than the hope for a final chance to pull the wool over the eyes of the American public, and Gowdy knows it.

Shocking Middle East Country Preps MASSIVE Assault on ISIS… Obama Freaks


President Barack Obama has tiptoed around the Middle East, trying to not offend any of our enemies and apologizing for our foreign policy. In doing so, he has completely failed to protect us against the Islamic State group.

However, one Middle East country has decided to take matters into its own hands to demolish the Islamic State thugs who have terrorized millions of people across the globe.

Egypt has been planning a large-scale campaign against the terrorist organization in the Sinai, according to an Arab intelligence source for Breitbart.
The Egyptian army, in coordination with Israel, has mobilized tanks and armored vehicles, as well as engineering and artillery units in the Sinai Peninsula over the past few days, the official said.

Cairo has historically been prevented from sending heavy weaponry into Sinai under the Israeli-Egyptian peace treaty, signed in 1979. However, with the Islamic State group threatening both countries, Israel has been allowing Egypt to violate that part of the treaty for the past few years so the country can fight militants in that area.

“That clause has long ceased to be relevant” when it comes to fighting Sinai militants, an official explained.
“Israel understands [President Abdel Fatah] Sisi’s needs, and realizes that [the Islamic State group] is a common enemy, therefore their operative cooperation is unprecedented at the operative level, with an Egyptian army backed by Israel’s intelligence,” the intelligence official said, according to Breitbart.

The coordinated assault could prove to be extremely effective as the terrorist organization has recently consolidated its control in northern Sinai, according to Egyptian intelligence.

Thus, the area has become a hot spot for the group, with 12 jihadists just last month departing Gaza to join the organization in Sinai, Breitbart reported.

The planned attack couldn’t come at a more appropriate time, either, as a top jihadist official recently revealed on “Aaron Klein Investigative Radio” that it is only a matter of time before the group’s Sinai branch carries out a “big operation” in the Israeli resort town of Eilat and other parts of southern Israel.
