Whistleblower who exposed Obama era Muslim scrubbing found dead by suicide

So hang on your tinfoil hats. Phillip Haney, a whistleblower during the Obama administration, has been found dead, and authorities say he committed suicide. From Fox News:

Philip Haney, a Department of Homeland Security (DHS) whistleblower who was an outspoken critic of the administration of former President Barack Obama, was found dead Friday, about 40 miles east of Sacramento, Calif., local authorities said.

Haney, 66, “appeared to have suffered a single, self-inflicted gunshot wound,” the Amador County Sheriff’s Office said in a release. Sheriff and coroner Martin A. Ryan shared the initial details of the case.

“On February 21, 2020 at approximately 1012 hours, deputies and detectives responded to the area of Highway 124 and Highway 16 in Plymouth to the report of a male subject on the ground with a gunshot wound,” the release read.

“Upon their arrival, they located and identified 66-year-old Philip Haney, who was deceased and appeared to have suffered a single, self-inflicted gunshot wound. A firearm was located next to Haney and his vehicle. This investigation is active and ongoing. No further details will be released at this time,” the office added.

Haney was planning to write another book, wanted to return to work at the DHS, and was recently engaged to be married.

Now, before we go off on more Seth Rich type conspiracies, we should wait for more information and not draw hasty conclusions.

I mean, the guy had already spilled what he knew, so what was the benefit of murdering him now? Here’s what he said in 2016 that made such a splash:

After leaving my 15 year career at DHS, I can no longer be silent about the dangerous state of America’s counter-terror strategy, our leaders’ willingness to compromise the security of citizens for the ideological rigidity of political correctness—and, consequently, our vulnerability to devastating, mass-casualty attack.

Just before that Christmas Day attack, in early November 2009, I was ordered by my superiors at the Department of Homeland Security to delete or modify several hundred records of individuals tied to designated Islamist terror groups like Hamas from the important federal database, the Treasury Enforcement Communications System (TECS). These types of records are the basis for any ability to “connect dots.” Every day, DHS Customs and Border Protection officers watch entering and exiting many individuals associated with known terrorist affiliations, then look for patterns. Enforcing a political scrubbing of records of Muslims greatly affected our ability to do that. Even worse, going forward, my colleagues and I were prohibited from entering pertinent information into the database.

A few weeks later, in my office at the Port of Atlanta, the television hummed with the inevitable Congressional hearings that follow any terrorist attack. While members of Congress grilled Obama administration officials, demanding why their subordinates were still failing to understand the intelligence they had gathered, I was being forced to delete and scrub the records. And I was well aware that, as a result, it was going to be vastly more difficult to “connect the dots” in the future—especially beforean attack occurs.

Here’s an interview with some guy named Hannity:

And another with some obscure lady named Megyn Kelly:

Interesting.

We’ll definitely update with more information, but only if it is confirmed, and we’ll try not to spread irresponsible conspiracy theories. They are titillating, they are clickbait, but I really do think they are destructive of our Republic.

This is very clever and funny:

This is one of the many reasons I think kids need to be off devices as much as possible for as long as possible, and definitely cut them out of schools:

Chalkboard and chalk never resulted in suicides.

What the heck.

Caption this:

I got, “I’m not voting for him, but Mr. Bloomberg paid me $500 to ask for your support.”

This dude made a home-made rocket and fired himself into the air twice already. Unfortunately, the third time was not the charm for him.

Rest in peace, Mad Mike Hughes.

Poor Sharon:

You guys need to share our articles more so I can get a raise and buy me up one of these:

Ahhhhh what a fun week. Take care!!
