Senior White House official George David Banks has “resigned” after being told that his security clearance had been denied. It makes him the third White House official to resign in just one week.
Banks, who served as Special Assistant to the President for International Energy and Environment for nearly a year, told Politico on Wednesday that his application for a permanent security clearance had been denied.
According to Banks, his security clearance had been denied because he admitted to smoking marijuana in 2013, which is illegal under federal law — however, the current policy is that they can get clearance unless they lied about it.
The allegations surrounding Porter have prompted questions about the handling of permanent security clearances as Porter, along with some other officials at the White House, were using interim clearances. The White House has also been under fire for its handling of the allegations against Porter.
Netanyahu Upsets Ultra-Orthodox and Says Pittsburgh “Synagogue”
Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said Monday that the 11 Jewish victims of the Shabbat morning massacre in Pittsburgh were killed in a “synagogue,” taking a veiled swipe at the country’s ultra-Orthodox chief rabbis, who had refused to designate the Conservative Jewish congregation as such.
The exchange exposed some of the recent strains between Israel and the more liberal Jewish Diaspora, even in the wake of the deadliest anti-Semitic attack against Jews in U.S. history.
Several ultra-Orthodox Israeli newspapers, however, refrained from calling Pittsburgh’s Tree of Life Synagogue a Jewish place of worship since they don’t recognize non-Orthodox denominations, instead mostly referring to it as a “Jewish center.”
Israel’s ultra-Orthodox often question the faith and practices of the more liberal Reform and Conservative streams of Judaism, to which most American Jews unfortunately belong.
Netanyahu’s coalition government relies on the support of Chareidi parties and he has often had to capitulate to their demands on matters of religion and state. The Chareidi establishment views other strains of Judaism as too lax in many issues – such as conversions and marriages, while American Jews have increasingly felt that they haven’t been valued in Israel as equals despite their ardent backing and identification.
Pence’s Fake Rabbi Invited by Christian Convert Lena Epstein Who Was Denounced by Jewish Community for Hate
Lena Epstein, 37, is a third-generation co-owner of Southfield-based Vesco Oil Corp., one of the largest distributors of automotive and industrial lubricants and supporting services in the country — and is a huge Trump fan. Lena Epstein, a Christian convert (formerly Jewish) Republican nominee for Congress in Michigan, has defended inviting a Messianic ” rabbi” to honor the victims of the Pittsburgh synagogue massacre at a campaign event that featured Vice President Mike Pence, saying that inviting the fake Rabbi was meant to “unite” people.
The Rabbi is not a real “Rabbi” and attended a Christian Evangelical Seminary to be a Minister.
Here’s the problem: She has been denounced by the Jewish community effectively for being a hate peddler. Her own friends penned a letter, below, claiming she has left the community and is no longer involved with Jewish values.
They noted, among other things, she is a follower of KKK Grand Wizard Dude and has spread his tweets.
Epstein co-chaired Trump’s campaign in Michigan in 2016 and is seeking the GOP nomination in the 11th District, where Republican Rep. Dave Trott is retiring.
Organized Crime Lawsuit Filed Against Trump Family
According to Judd Legum on Twitter, a Civil RICO lawsuit has been filed against Donald Trump, his sons and the Trump organization for their involvement in an illegal MLM scam.
The lawsuit claims that Since 2006, Donald Trump has been accepting large quantities of stolen cash to front the ‘MLM Income Opportunity’ cultic racket known as ‘ACN’ (instigated 1993 as the ‘American Communications Network’).
The lawsuit points to numerous heartbreaking stories of Trump telling people to pay large amounts of money to the scam without even revealing to a single viewer that he was himself paid to promote the scam. Many of the people scammed were working poor and couldn’t afford to pay the hundreds to thousands of dollars.
Trump even went as far to claim that the MLM scam was actually, “risk free” and there was no way they would lose their money — and they believed him.
He in fact was so close to the company, that he devoted an entire segment of the Celebrity Apprentice to ACN’s revolutionary videophone. He introduced the two executives on the show and said, “They run a company called ACN, which I know very well.” ACN was personally invited by Donald Trump to appear on an episode of The Celebrity Apprentice, according to their own press release.
Yet, in any intervew with the Wall Street Journal he lied and claimed otherwise. “I do not know the company. I know nothing about the company other than the people who run the company,” he said. “I’m not familiar with what they do or how they go about doing that.”
We found an entire PAGE on ACN’s website dedicated to President Donald Trump and his endorsement of the products, over and over again.
It’s pretty clear he wasn’t just involved, but he was intimately involved.
