Was it a “self-inflicted” gunshot, or vengeance from Islamic terrorists and their deep state allies?
“On February 21, 2020 at approximately 1012 hours,” according to Amador County, California sheriff-coroner Martin A. Ryan, “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. 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 establishment media ignored the story but as Michelle Mears noted in the California Globe, Haney’s relatives and friends did not believe he had killed himself. That left the question of motive, and high on the list of suspects would be Islamic terrorists.
Haney was a UC Riverside alum who worked as a field agricultural entomologist in the Middle East, where he began studying Arabic and the Quran. In a 2016 interview, Frank Gaffney asked Haney to comment on the behavior of “Islamic supremacists” and their doctrine of shariah.
“Some people have heard about ants, how they leave scent trails,” Haney said. “And other insects do it, too, so they can follow each other around and not get lost. Well, that’s essentially what shariah is. That is the universe that Muslims live inside, it forms the boundaries of the world that they live in. And their attempt to implement shariah on a global basis, from their perspective, is an attempt to establish order in this chaotic, violent world that we live in. That’s why they always say that Islam is a religion of peace. Because for them, shariah equals peace.”
The erudite Haney proved adept at tracking terrorist groups, but as he explained in The Hill on May 5, 2016, the Department of Homeland Security ordered him “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).”
As Haney told Gaffney, “The mosque that [San Bernardino terrorist] Syed Farook attended was part of that Tablighi Jamaat network. The administration deleted sixty-seven records out of the system that I had worked on as a component of the Tablighi case.” So those still part of that terrorist network might have a motive to silence Haney, who provided a broader picture in See Something Say Nothing: A Homeland Security Officer Exposes the Government’s Submission to Jihad.
Haney also authored Frontpage articles such as, “Deobond Attacks in San Bernardino, Sri Lanka,” “The Terrorist Ties that Bind,” and “The Assembly of Muslim Jurists of America’s Ominous Post-Election Statement.” That extensive piece, Haney wrote at the end, was “Finished at 2017 hours on January 19, 2017, the evening before the Inauguration of Donald J. Trump as President.”
Trump called out Islamic terrorism and according to Kerry Picket in the Washington Examiner, Haney was “recently in contact with top officials about returning to work for the DHS.” That would not please the DHS holdovers who went after Haney for telling the truth about Islamic terrorists.
After Haney’s testimony to the Senate Judiciary Committee in 2016, Sen. Ted Cruz asked Jeh Johnson, DHS Secretary from 2013-17, if Haney’s testimony was accurate. “I have no idea. I don’t know who Mr. Haney is,” Johnson replied. “I wouldn’t know him if he walked into the room.”
Haney said DHS investigated him nine times and revoked his security clearance. The Department of Justice charged that Haney “misused a government computer,” charges later dropped. Still, the news that Haney might be returning to DHS would not thrill POTUS 44 “wing man” Eric Holder, who has been telling reporters looking into DOJ malfeasance to “shut the hell up.”
John Durham is mounting a criminal investigation and as Sebastian Gorka explains, “the counter-coup has begun” and “the deep state beast is writing in discomfiture.” The coup clan failed to removed Trump from office and may now be convinced that Trump will be reelected. So it is entirely possible that the death of DHS whistleblower Phil Haney was the first shot fired in the deep state coverup.
“Phil had firsthand evidence that Obama was secretly advancing Islamic hegemony in the U.S.,” Haney’s friend Bill Becker, told the California Globe. “He sacrificed his career to expose it.” His suspicious death deserves an investigation by the FBI, but at this writing, nothing has been announced. As FBI critics might note, after Bernie Sanders supporter James Hodgkinson shot down Steve Scalise, an FBI special agent told reporters it was too soon to say if the shooter had deliberately targeted Republican lawmakers.
Meanwhile, according to the California Globe, friends of Phil Haney said he was “preparing to go back on the road during the 2020 election season.” That raises issues far beyond Amador County, California.
If they manage to win the White House, any of the leading Democrats would surely shut down all investigations into any misconduct by the administration of POTUS 44. At this writing, the Democrats’ leading contender is Rip Van Winkle communist Bernie Sanders, and the election takes place on November 3. As President Trump says, we’ll have to see what happens.
