America, Asian, and Community: MESSAGE FROM THE FATHER OF MOLLIE TIBBETTS The person who is accused of taking Mollie's life is no more a reflection of the Hispanic community as white supremacists are of all white people. To suggest otherwise is a lie. Justice in my America is blind. This person will receive a fair trial, as it should be. If convicted, he will face the consequences society has set. Beyond that, he deserves no more attention. To the Hispanic community, my family stands with you and offers its heartfelt apology. That you've been beset by the circumstances of Mollie's death is wrong. We treasure the contribution you bring to the American tapestry in all its color and melody. And yes, we love your food. My stepdaughter, whom Mollie loved so dearly, is Latina. Her sons _ Mollie's cherished nephews and my grandchildren are Latino. That means I am Hispanic. I am African. I am Asian. I am European. My blood runs from every corner of the Earth because I am American As an American, I have one tenet: to respect every citizen of the world and actively engage in the ongoing pursuit to form a more perfect union. Given that, to knowingly foment discord among races is a disgrace to our flag. It incites fear in innocent communities and lends legitimacy to the darkest, most hate-filled corners of the American soul. It is the opposite of leadership. It is the opposite of humanity. It is heartless. It is despicable. It is shameful. https://www.desmoinesregister.com/story/opinion/columnists/2018/09/0 1/mollie-tibbetts-father- common-decency-immigration-heartless-despicable-donald-trump-jr-column/ 1 I 631 3 1 002/ A Message From the Father of Mollie Tibbetts

Community, Fbi, and Hillary Clinton: BREAKING REPORT: HILLARY'S ENTIRE SERVER WAS HACKED w w w . UncleSam s MisguidedCild r en.c o m GIVING CHINA ACCESS TO EVERY EMAIL IN REAL TIME Over 30,000 emails from Hillary’s email server allegedly landed in the hands of the Chinese Government….in real time, according to an article in the Daily Caller. Every time she pushed the “send” button, China got a copy. And the kicker is that Peter Strzok knew, as well as 3 other FBI officials. Unauthorized access to classified information A Chinese owned company operating in Virginia reportedly hacked into Hillary’s email server, and placed a code that automatically sent a “courtesy copy” to them as part of an intelligence operation. And since Hillary was in the habit of sending classified information via her private email system, whalla! Instant intelligence information at their fingertips. The “anomaly” was found back in 2015. No one did anything about it. ICIG (Intelligence Community Inspector General) investigator Frank Rucker and attorney Janette McMillan met with 4 FBI officials to warn them about the anomaly on several occasions. They did nothing. During Strzok’s testimony last month, Rep Louie Gohmert took him to task over the “anomaly” found in her email server. Gohmert: You said earlier in this hearing you were concerned about a hostile foreign power affecting the election. Do you recall the former Intelligence Community Inspector General Chuck McCullough having an investigation into an anomaly found on Hillary Clinton’s emails? Let me refresh your memory. The Intelligence Community Inspector General Chuck McCullough sent his investigator Frank Rucker along with an IGIC attorney Janette McMillan to brief you and Dean Chapelle and two other FBI personnel who I won’t name at this time, about an anomaly they had found on Hillary Clinton’s emails that were going to the private unauthorized server that you were supposed to be investigating? Strzok: I remember meeting Mr. Rucker on either one or two occasions. I do not recall the specific content or discussions.
