Wildfire Jihadis and the Genocide of Cultural and Ancient Sites

“Never give in. Never give in. Never, never, never, never-in nothing, great or small, large or petty—never give in, except to convictions of honor and good sense.  Never yield to force.  Never yield to the apparently overwhelming might of the enemy.” – Winston S. Churchill

“Europe is no longer Europe, it is Eurabia, a colony of Islam, where the Islamic invasion does not proceed only in a physical sense, but also in a mental and cultural sense.” –  Oriana Fallaci, Italian Journalist

“In each of our cities lies a second city: a Muslim city, a city run by the Quran.  A stage in the Islamic expansionism.” – Oriana Fallaci, Italian Journalist

“Some Westerners have argued that the West does not have problems with Islam but only with violent Islamist extremists.  Fourteen hundred years of history demonstrate otherwise.” –  Samuel P. Huntington, American Political Scientist


Chaplain Austin Miles, a friend of over 23 years, recently authored a commentary on the fires of Australia.  He was right, they are not the product of climate change as the socialists in our society claim, but of purposely set fires by Islamists to destroy and instill fear in the nations they wish to occupy and control.

Miles wrote, “The Daily Telegraph reported that they now know how the Australian fires started. You will not see this in most newspapers.  They were deliberately started by two Muslim teenagers living in Australia with their parents.

Those teens, Fadi Zraika and his brother, Abraham were seen, laughing as they left court and walked out free.  Got that?  Walked free after setting Australia on fire.”

For many years, the Al-Qaeda Magazine and the Islamic State (ISIS) have offered instructions to its operatives and followers in the West about how to start large wildfires with timed explosives and how to build remote-controlled bombs.  Even ABC News has reported this.

Because of the great difficulty in identifying the perpetrators of the various wildfires, only a few Muslims have been caught and arrested.  But considering how many wildfires take place every year, it is not out of line to presume that some of the fires have been Al-Qaeda-inspired. Yes, Al Qaeda promotes forest fire attacks.

Muslims in Australia are among nearly 200 arsonists who have set fires. Authorities in Australia have arrested close to 200 people for deliberately starting the bushfires that have devastated the country, yet the media and celebrities continue to blame “climate change” for the disaster.

Many organizations believe the killing of terrorist Qasem Soleimani will activate the multitude of Islamic sleeper cells in America to retaliation…that remains to be seen.

Fire Jihad in Israel

In Israel, fires set by Muslims are a common occurrence.  Firefighters continue to deal with epidemics of arson in the Haredi community, with groups of young boys repeatedly setting fires in open areas. They would watch the firefighters battling the blaze and taunt them, saying they’d be called back to the same place in less than an hour.

Israel National News reported that two Arab arsonists were arrested in Jerusalem blazes. One of the fires was set next to an Israeli Defense Forces (IDF) base on Mount Scopus, and the other was set next to Hadassah Hospital on Mount Scopus. One of the Muslim thugs confessed, incriminating his partner in crime.

Islamic State in its summer 2017 English language magazine called on supporters to commit arson in the spirit of “devastating fires that ravaged Jewish settlements in Palestine.”

Through arson, operatives can “impose terror on an entire country,” the Sunni Islamist organization stressed.  They added, “The whole world witnessed the devastating fires that ravaged Jewish settlements in Palestine, destroying around 700 Jewish homes.”

Recruits should target “ideal locations” such as “houses and apartment buildings, forest areas adjacent to residential areas, factories that produce cars, furniture, clothing, flammable substances etc., gas stations, hospitals, bars, dance clubs, night clubs, banks, car showrooms, schools, universities, as well as churches, Rafidi temples, (Rafidi means those who have rejected Islam) and so forth,” the article explained.

Worldwide Jihadi Fires

Thousands of fires by jihadists have destroyed churches and cathedrals in Europe and around the world. Millions of acres have burned in California; forests, wildlife and homes have been destroyed.

In 2019 a Protestant Church was set ablaze in Niger, a landlocked country in West Africa following the arrest of a prominent Muslim leader and extending ongoing interreligious strife in the country.

Early in 2013, the New York Times reported that in Islamabad, Pakistan, an enraged Muslim crowd attacked a Christian neighborhood in Lahore setting fire to more than 200 Christian homes and two churches, in a new display of religious intolerance as Pakistan reels from violent persecution against other minorities.

In 2010, Muslim jihadists set fire to a church and to a Christian school in Punjab, India in reaction to the proposed Qur‘an burning by U.S. clergyman, Rev. Terry Jones,  in order to commemorate 9/11, an action he later abandoned but still caused protests among Muslims along with anti-Christian violence.

Then there’s the fire that nearly destroyed Notre Dame Cathedral in Paris, France. The two dominant forces in Europe, secular leftism and Islamism, have sought the end of Christianity and the West. The Left believes that protecting Western civilization is equivalent to protecting white supremacy.

Whether Notre Dame’s fire was a worker accident or that a Muslim jihadist set fire to the landmark, as they have to scores of other churches around Europe, it doesn’t much matter. The omen is that fire jihadists are burning and destroying worldwide.

California fires over the last ten years have increased exponentially, burning homes, forests, and wildlife. ISIS has urged its followers to ‘ignite fires’ in forests across the US and Europe.  The disturbing call comes as wildfires have devastated California.

At least four propaganda posters have appeared on Quraysh, a pro-ISIS media outlet, urging followers to “ignite fires” in forests, The Washington Free Beacon says, citing The Middle East Media Research Institute.

“Ignite fires in the forests of America, France, Britain, and Germany, for they are painful to them,” one poster reads, according to the site.

Cultural and Historic Jihadist Destruction

The United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) is a specialized agency of the United Nations based in Paris, France. UNESCO, the international body that has been given the powers of judgment over what sites on this planet constitute our “world heritage,” has denounced the many incidents of vandalism as “acts of barbarism.” That’s about it, in terms of a concerted international response, they have done nothing to stop it.  UNESCO has no policing powers. We have empowered a body to recognize the rare and beautiful things of this planet, yet we do nothing when they are destroyed by Islamic jihadists.

Islam is not even a religion; it is a political system that uses a deity to advance its agenda of global conquest, and that system is growing faster than any other.

Muslim extremists have long sought to destroy the physical evidence that any other faith worth valuing existed before their own. In March, 2001, the Afghan Taliban announced to the world that they would destroy the ancient, giant Buddhas of Bamiyan, in central Afghanistan, and then, using explosives and artillery, proceeded to do just that. In the last decade, the Saudis, as the keepers of the Muslim holy places, have razed hundreds of historic sites in the cities of Mecca and Medina to make way for new construction, including shopping malls and hotels.

Famous Italian journalist, Oriana Fallaci wrote her book, The Rage and the Pride after the 9/11 carnage by Islamists.  She railed against them knowing that Europe was already lost and America’s political correctness would be our demise as well.  She raged against the worldwide cultural and historical destruction by these jihadists.  Oriana was infuriated at the destruction of the Buddhas of Bamiyan. This destruction is cultural genocide.

Islamists willfully and with impunity are destroying some of the world’s oldest and rarest archeological treasures. In 2015, there were video clips of the Islamic State in Iraq of al-Sham’s extremists wielding sledgehammers and drills, methodically destroying an exquisitely carved stone lamassu, or winged man-bull, at the Assyrian complex of Nimrud, which was created by artists nearly three thousand years ago.

Then it was the ancient temple complex of Hatra, in northern Iraq, which was built by the Seleucid Empire around two or three centuries before Christ. Hatra had been the site of a series of glorious colonnaded buildings and statues; it is reported that beginning on March 7th, 2015, ISIS destroyed what was left of them.

Images on social media showed ISIS extremists attacking the grounds of St. George’s, a centuries-old Chaldean Catholic monastery outside of Mosul. In this world of all-seeing, all-hearing killer drones, these acts somehow continue.

Islamic State militants completely ransacked the northern Iraq City of Mosul’s central museum and destroyed priceless artifacts, some which dated back thousands of years. Some of the statues and artifacts dated to the Assyrian and Akkadian empires. The terrorist group published a video of the destruction. In the video, an ISIS representative condemns Assyrians and Akkadians as polytheists. The militants smashed the statues in the museum with hammers and pushed the remains to the ground so they shattered even more. ISIS had not just destroyed the museum, however, they have caused irreparable damage across Syria and Iraq since 2010.

Before and after ISIS, here are heartbreaking photos of destroyed historical   monuments in Syria.  Here is a guide from National Geographic to ancient cultural sites that ISIS has damaged or destroyed so far.

Destroying Freedom for the Love of Money

There are many enemies of freedom and liberty.  Communism and Communist Red China is one of the greatest, but another is just as violent and evil. Islam has conquered Europe through the migrant crisis; now their target is the west, i.e. America.  The Islamist goal is total control of the world for Muhammed.

Why do our politicians promote the politically correct attitude toward Islamists when they desire to ultimately control America?  Because they have succumbed to the bribery of the multitude of Muslim organizations who fund their candidacies. Ahh yes, the love of money, 1 Timothy 6:10 (KJV) states, “For the love of money is the root of all evil: which while some coveted after, they have erred from the faith, and pierced themselves through with many sorrows.” The Bible clearly says that love of money, (not money) produces all kinds of evil.

That love of money by our politicians has cost America dearly.  The Muslim Brotherhood, which was introduced to the George W. Bush White House after 9/11 by pro-Islamist and CFR member, Grover Norquist, has infiltrated all of American intelligence.

The FBI severed its relationship with the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) in 2008, saying until it determines “whether there continues to be a connection between” CAIR leadership and Hamas terrorists, the organization is not an appropriate liaison partner.

However, two recent episodes show that, despite this rhetoric and evidence linking CAIR to a Hamas support network – in addition to unresolved questions about its current connections – government agencies continue to engage with the group, even sending its officials abroad to represent the U.S.

Conclusion

In 2009, David Gaubatz wrote Muslim Mafia, a book that details his son, Chris Gaubatz’s infiltration of CAIR and the Brotherhood for six months and what he found and exposed.  Chris and his team revealed a well-funded conspiracy to destroy American society and promote radical Islam.

The Islamic worldwide destruction of cultural and historic monuments is much like destroying America’s Civil War history by eliminating the statues of veterans of both sides of that war…they eliminate the historic truth.  The Muslim goal is to instill fear and pain by burning their enemy’s countries, their homes, their churches, and destroying their landmarks and their culture.  They now reside in our Congress…America must not allow them to succeed.

Chilean Crime Gang Arrested on Long Island

This is pretty outrageous—how did this whole gang of international crooks even gain entry to the US in the first place?  And, why are we never given any information about which of our many ways of gaining entry was exploited?

From Chile, not the usual Mexican or Central American gang either!

Thanks to reader Jonathan for the tip:

From News 12 Long Island:

Police: 3 members of Chilean burglary crew strike homes in Nassau

(Don’t miss the news clip where authorities suggest they may have taken advantage of new bond laws.)

Three people were arrested Tuesday in connection to numerous home burglaries in Nassau County.

Police say the suspects arrested were part of a burglary organization from Chile.

Police arrested Boneek Alexander Quintero-Baeza, 32, Alexandra Ivonne Pizarro-Blanche, 23, and Levy Frank Maury Brugman, 23, at a residence in College Point, Queens. Police say all three are from Chile and were taken into custody after authorities received tips about a burglary in Hewlett Harbor.

According to police, Quintero-Baeza broke into the Hewlett Harbor home in September and stole $25,000 in cash, designer bags and jewelry. Quintero-Baeza and Brugman also committed a burglary in New Jersey and had been released without bond.  [Imagine that, an arrest of foreign nationals for burglary and they were released!—ed]

Prosecutors said in court that Quintero-Baeza has a long criminal record of burglaries in Spain and Argentina. [And, we let him in!—ed]

[….]

Authorities say they recovered jewelry, hand bags, electronic devices and clothing believed to have been taken from homes. Police say multiple identifications were recovered and are believed to be aliases for the defendants allowing them to operate within the United States.

Police say a fourth suspect, Bryan Maldonado, is still at large. Police believe Maldonado is the ring leader and say he is also from Chile.

Nassau police believe the Chileans may be part of a larger criminal operation that stretches across the U.S. They say detectives are now working with federal authorities.

Third World Waiting for Trump to Leave so Border Invasion Can Go into High Gear

Editor:  Don’t miss this morning’s post at RRW about how much the President is saving taxpayers by cutting the US Conference of Catholic Bishops funding!

Reader Jonathan directed me to this important post by Todd Bensman at the Center for Immigration Studies on Friday.

TAPACUHLA, Mexico — Honduran Katherine Cabrera is among thousands of migrants who didn’t expect to get bottled up in this southern Mexican city, unable to proceed to the American border as planned, because of President Donald Trump’s insistence that Mexico block them with troop deployments and whatever else the Mexicans could come up with.

New Mexican travel restriction rules required that Cabrera either go home with her newborn child or stay here in Tapachula to apply for Mexican asylum and await an outcome perhaps months in the future. Rather than return home as some have, though, Cabrera said she reached a carefully reasoned-out decision. She’ll stay in Mexico and pursue that asylum claim in a calculated gambit: that Donald Trump will lose the November 2020 election and once the Democrats control the White House, they’ll reverse everything Trump did and reopen the U.S. southern border so that she can finally breach it.

“I want Trump out!” Cabrera said. “I’ll wait for that because it would make things easier to get in.”

Read it all and then see that additional migrants from Central America can’t wait and were attempting to break into Mexico just over the weekend. Story from Reuters.

Meanwhile the President has announced a new effort to halt the explosion of so-called “birth tourism.”

And, his refugee reform has been temporarily halted by a court injunction sought by the federal refugee resettlement contractors that stand to lose millions of tax dollars if the President reins-in the dysfunctional Refugee Admissions Program.

Moral of the story—everyone needs to get busy to re-elect Donald Trump.

Demographics is destiny! We need an additional four more years to work on halting out-of-control migration.

2020 Has Arrived And So Have The False Flags

FALSE FLAG

false flag is intentional misrepresentation, especially a covert political or military operation carried out to appear as if it was undertaken by another party.


Impeachment with False Flag Looming

Boggles the mind that in order to proceed with impeachment you would think there would be high crimes and misdemeanors along with supportive facts and evidence in that stack of papers these treasonous idiots slow walked across to the Senate. Well not in the case of the Schiff-Nadler-Pelosi charade. Rest assured, President Trump will not be impeached in the Senate and will not be removed from office. Quite the contrary. Trumps’ poll numbers will continue to rise. Stadiums across the nation will be filled at the rallies. And we shall see an historical landslide in both the electoral college and the popular vote come November 2020. Get your evangelical friends and couch potato Republicans to vote Trump!

Team Trump Ready To Rumble

I’m not a fan of John Bolton. And yes, the do nothing Dems will bring on some “witnesses” and we all know where this is heading. A noisy, disruptive freak show. No facts. No evidence that will prove any impeachable offenses. But look at what is in store for them.

Alan Dershowitz, a life long liberal Democrat who voted for Hillary and has been and will be a part of team Trump in the Senate hearings. Also on team Trump we have Jay Sekulow, Pat Cipllone, Ken Starr, Robert Ray, Pam Bondi, Jane Raskin, and Eric Herschmann. Bio briefs can be found here. 

We have facts and evidence and truth. They have nothing. This could get very interesting if we get to see “Where’s Hunter”, “Sleepy Joe”,  “Shifty Schiff”, “Nervous Nancy” and others on the witness stand under oath. Get the popcorn

Virginia’s False Flag

Blackface Northam is causing quite the disruption. There is one detail, the law is not on his side. Let’s see what the Supreme Court does with this. But as the pattern runs, this has been orchestrated to occur just as the fake impeachment hits the Senate and has all the hallmarks of a coming False Flag. Yes we know they want to take away the guns. Be prepared for Soros’ money to be hard at work. There will be plants in the crowds to incite violence. We may very well see ANTIFA rear (hide), it’s ugly face. They are trying to get the good guys, us, to make a mistake amidst the violence that they will create. These are the ingredients of a False Flag, Problem-Reaction-Solution. “They” create the problem, anticipate the reaction, blame it on someone else and then deliver the “solution”. Take away the guns! Not going to happen. Be smart. Be vigilant. Be safe. Furthermore as in all false flags, this will be yet another diversionary distraction, clogging up the global news cycle taking attention away from the truth in the Senate hearings as the Dems. and Deep State are exposed. Virginia. Is this Charlottesville all over again? Textbook. Let’s hope not.

Summary

Yes 2020 is here beginning with President Trump seizing control step by step against the Deep State’s sites in the Middle East with the killing of terrorist Soleimani and now the Impeachment in the Senate and the FF in Virginia. We have a long way to go my friends until election day USA. Buckle down. Stay the course. Trust the plan and pray for our President and his family.

PODCAST: Unsettled — The Refugee Question

“I had a small hope that maybe ISIS would not come,” Thabet says, remembering, as he and the reporter drove the long road toward Mosul. But within hours, everyone he loved and knew had fled. Thirteen thousand Christians vanished, scattered miles from the Nineveh Plain, in hiding. They slept in courtyards, unfinished apartment buildings, churches, camps — while waves of terrorists burned their way through their towns.

In cities like his, the nights often went like this. Priests would climb the sanctuary steps to ring the bells, sounding the alarm that fighters were on their way. Moms and dads shook their kids awake, gathered what they could, and left. It was the last time most of them would ever see their homes again. Even now, after the region was recaptured and secured, the Christians brave enough to stay don’t have an easy life. There’s oppression, isolation, and violence. Families keep their daughters close, worried about rape and abuse.

But leaving, for some, is just as difficult. In the United States, asylum can be hard to come by. After eight years of watching “refugees” stream across our borders unchecked, President Trump is processing these applications with an abundance of caution. Under the previous White House, too many foreigners were gaming the system, slipping into lines where they knew they couldn’t be scrutinized. This administration has been trying to clean up that mess, putting procedures and screenings in place to guarantee that anyone who steps foot on our soil doesn’t pose a threat to the American people.

That new vigilance has paid off. There’s more balance in the faith groups entering the country, for one thing. Under Obama, 97 percent of the Syrian refugees coming to the U.S. were Muslim, while Christians would dribble through one or two at a time. President Trump is trying to give other believers, especially those targeted for persecution, the fair shake the last administration didn’t. Although there’s been a dramatic decrease in the number of refugees, Christians, as of last year, made up 82 percent of them.

But the system isn’t perfect. And that’s one thing evangelicals have struggled with, especially as the global horrors keep growing and pool of victims gets larger. When the White House announced in September that it was cutting its refugee ceiling from 30,000 to almost zero, there were some conservatives who, fed up with Obama’s dangerous policy, thought this was a positive step. Others, like myself, were instantly concerned. As we speak, there’s an unprecedented number of believers — from all faiths — being kicked out of their homelands and displaced. Whether they’re being killed or driven out or put in concentration camps, the survival of entire populations is at stake.

Now, there are some evangelicals who agree with liberals and think America should open its arms to everyone. Obviously, that’s created some friction inside the church and conservative circles — because on one hand, we want to be a place of last resort for the vulnerable. But on the other, we don’t want our country taken advantage of by those who are not interested in being a part of America, rather they want to pull America apart. Ideally, we insisted at the U.S. Commission on International Religious Freedom (USCIRF), the administration would never let the number of refugees drop below 30,000 — which is already a historic low.

“So long as refugee numbers are low,” Mark Krikorian pointed out on NRO, “and not drawing disproportionately from the Islamic world, even governors with pretty hawkish constituencies may well feel free to accommodate the… lobby for continued resettlement.”

Senator James Lankford (R-Okla.) agrees and even took some flak for defending his governor, who, like a lot of Republicans, is giving the green light to refugees resettling in his state. On “Washington Watch,” Lankford explained that it all goes back to the core values that created America. “Dating back to the 1700s, our framers decided that our nation was going to be founded on a different kind of principle: that we’re going to honor people of faith to be able to not only have a faith of their choosing — but to be able to live that faith out or to be able to have no faith at all. And many of the refugees that are fleeing from around the world are fleeing religious persecution, in particular, and running from places around the world where they cannot survive based on their faith, whether that be Kurds… Christians, Yazidis, or other faiths. And so America, as a beacon of place where we honor religious liberty, we should continue to be able to practice that as well in receiving refugees, especially those fleeing religious persecution.”

As he and I talked about, these people are looking for a safe haven. And while the Obama administration didn’t do a very good job screening these people, President Trump changed that. These aren’t unvetted terrorist wannabes who want to destroy America. They’re hurting survivors with no place to go. Our faith leads us to be a place of refuge. That doesn’t mean we blindly embrace anyone who shows up at our borders. But it does mean we’ve got to keep the door open for the victims who truly need it.

Mexican border police on red alert over report of four Iranians with explosives attempting to cross into US

Remember: anyone in favor of border controls is racist and xenophobic.

“Mexicali border on red alert for the next 72 hours,” by Alexandra Rangel, KYMA, January 10, 2020 (thanks to the Geller Report):

…MEXICALI, B.C. (KYMA, KECY) – Mexicali Police Chief Maria Elena Andrade confirmed that a red alert has been issued at the Mexicali border due to a possible Iranian terrorist threat.

According to Andrade, the terrorist advisory was received Thursday from Customs and Border Protection in Arizona.

“We received reports that four nationals of Iran possibly carrying explosives were going to attempt to cross the border in the area of San Luis to Mexicali. We were told it was three men and a woman to be on the lookout for, “ said Andrade.

Upon the alert issued, Operation Shield has now been activated in Mexicali.

According to Andrade, all law enforcement in the city is currently on high alert.

The chief said CBP asked Mexicali law enforcement to issue the alert for the next 48 hours, but Andrade said she has extended the alert for 72 hours….

Democrat Silence on Support for Iranian Protesters

Days into the brave protests by Iranian citizens against their corrupt and brutal regime, Democrat airwaves were silent.

While protesters began calling out the lies of the Iranian regime over its handling of the downing of a Ukrainian Airlines commercial plane and demanding the resignation of Supreme Leader Ayatollah Khamenei, until Monday, there were no words of support by high-ranking Democrats or any of the 2020 Democrat presidential contenders.

As journalist Yashar Ali, who is of Iranian decent, tweeted:

Instead, Dems were busy tweeting out their disapproval of President Trump’s hit on Iranian arch-terrorist Qasem Soleimani and sending condolences to the Iranian public – most of whom were celebrating the demise of such an evil influence on the world.

In contrast, President Trump’s tweet in Farsi in support of the Iranian protesters, garnered the most “likes” in the history of Persian Twitter, as noted by  Saeed Ghasseminejad, a senior adviser at the Foundation for Defense of Democracies.

The tweet read: “To the brave, long-suffering people of Iran: I’ve stood with you since the beginning of my Presidency, and my Administration will continue to stand with you. We are following your protests closely, and are inspired by your courage.”

The Democrats’ lack of support for the Iranian protesters did not go unnoticed by the president who retweeted the following meme (causing the likes of CAIR, the Council on American-Islamic Relations, to fall into an apoplectic Islamophobia fit).

By Sunday and then on Monday, Democrat radio silence was feebly broken by Joe Biden and Amy Kloucher, respectively, the latter of whom tweeted out weak and vague words of support for the “right to peacefully protest in any country, including Iran.”

Biden mainly used the opportunity to take a dig at Trump and his “reckless policies (that) needlessly endangered our interests in the Middle East.”

While Iranians doing just that were being shot in the streets by the regime security forces, the rest of the 2020 Democrat political contenders remained silent.

It was a shameful response for members of a party which prides itself on being a champion of human rights.

In the meantime, House Minority Leader Republican Kevin McCarthy announced his plans to introduce a resolution in Congress in support of the Iranian protesters:

The wall is going up, and illegal immigration is down!

Americans spent years telling Washington to fix our country’s broken immigration system. But career politicians ignored the will of voters and pushed “solutions” that left special interests happy and most citizens frustrated.

Donald J. Trump won the Presidency promising to end that stalemate. Now, despite shocking levels of resistance from Democrats in Congress, the rule of law is being restored at our nation’s doorstep. Mile by mile, President Trump is keeping his promise.

Watch: Out with the old, in with the new wall!

The 100th mile of border wall construction was announced on Friday—a “milestone achievement,” Acting Homeland Security Secretary Chad Wolf said.

“New wall has been constructed in every border state from California to Texas. This is a milestone for our entire country, and this would not have been possible without the President’s steadfast determination and leadership,” Wolf said.

“Walls work,” he added. They’re “an undeniable impediment to human smugglers, drug traffickers, and other criminals who have exploited our lack of effective border infrastructure.” The wall comes as part of a much larger strategy by President Trump to curb illegal immigration, including new deals with countries such as Mexico, Guatemala, Honduras, and El Salvador, to protect our asylum system for those who need it most.

The progress in the past year alone has been staggering. Last May, monthly border apprehensions skyrocketed to more than 144,000 in the midst of our National Emergency, leaving resources for our law enforcement officers stretched to their limits. Now, illegal immigration is down for the seventh straight month.

“The President listened to his operators on the front lines,” Wolf said. As a result, not only was border wall funding secured, but the President made sure our officers have the tools they need to get the problem under control. That means all-weather roads, lighting, enforcement cameras, and other enforcement technology.

The result? Since border wall construction began in Tucson, Arizona, illegal crossings are down 24 percent. In San Diego, California, they’re down 27 percent. And in Yuma, Arizona, they are down over 78 percent.

“Trump touts court ruling allowing military funds for border wall construction.”

Watch: 100 miles of border wall—and counting


Video of the day: America is WORKING!

 

Friday’s jobs report builds on what is perhaps the biggest storyline of the Trump Presidency: the blue-collar, working-class economic boom that began 3 years ago.

The headline numbers, such as the unemployment rate remaining at a 50-year low of 3.5 percent, show how the U.S. economy is firing on all cylinders. The most powerful takeaway, though, is what the Trump Economy is doing for historically disadvantaged communities:

  • Wage growth for workers now outpaces growth for managers.
  • Wage growth for those without a bachelor’s degree now outpaces growth for those with a bachelor’s degree or higher.
  • Wage growth for the lowest earners now outpaces growth for the highest earners.

The only ones shaking their heads today are the “experts” who told us that President Trump’s economy would be a mess. For everyone else, it’s a great time to be on the job.

Ilhan Omar enraged as Minnesota county bans refugee resettlement

“What Beltrami County is doing is denying refugees a chance at a better life,” said Omar. “Native Minnesotans blame the influx of Somalis for spikes in crime. Minnesota statistics released in July 2018 showed that incidents of violent crime including murder decreased compared to 2017, but rape and involuntary sex trafficking rose to the highest rate seen in almost a quarter-century.”

So apparently Minnesotans aren’t allowed to try to provide a better life for themselves and their children. They must instead be wholly concerned with providing Muslim migrants a better life.

“Omar sounds off after Minnesota county bans refugee resettlement – aided by Trump executive order,” by Danielle Wallace, Fox News, January 10, 2020 (thanks to the Geller Report):

After an executive order by President Trump made it possible, a northern Minnesota county on Tuesday night opted to ban the resettlement of refugees within its boundaries, becoming the first in the state and the second in the nation to do so.

The vote at a crowded public meeting in Beltrami County, a sparsely inhabited area surrounding Red Lake, drew condemnation from many Minnesota Democrats, including U.S. Rep. Ilhan Omar.

The move was viewed by many as a reaction to spiking crime in the state since large numbers of Somali refugees began arriving, according to reports. But supporters say it was simply an exercise of their rights, as facilitated by the president.

“President Trump empowered counties to have a voice in the decision-making process for the federal refugee resettlement program,” state Rep. Matt Grossell, a Republican, told the Duluth News Tribune. “Tonight, Beltrami County exercised that option.”

In a Twitter message Wednesday, Omar – who immigrated to Minnesota from Somalia as a teenager – saw the vote differently.

“Over 20 years ago, the state of Minnesota welcomed my family with open arms. I never would’ve had the opportunities that led me to Congress had I been rejected,” Omar wrote. “What Beltrami County is doing is denying refugees a chance at a better life.”

Omar fled Somalia with her family near the beginning of the country’s civil war in 1991 and lived in a Kenyan refugee camp for four years until immigrating to the U.S. in 1995.

The Trump administration announced in November that resettlement agencies must get written consent from state and local officials in any jurisdiction where they want to help resettle refugees beyond June 2020. The order says the agencies were not working closely enough with local officials on resettling refugees and his administration acted to respect communities that believe they do not have the jobs or other resources to be able to take in refugees. Refugees have the right to move anywhere in the United States after their initial resettlement, but at their own expense.

The vote drew applause from many of the crowd of more than 150 people present at the board chambers in Bemidji, Minn., which is about 140 miles northwest of Duluth. Native Minnesotans blame the influx of Somalis for spikes in crime.

Minnesota statistics released in July 2018 showed that incidents of violent crime including murder decreased compared to 2017, but rape and involuntary sex trafficking rose to the highest rate seen in almost a quarter-century, The Duluth News Tribune reported, citing the state Department of Public Safety Bureau of Criminal Apprehension. The report did not give a definitive reason for the spike….

Texas: Somali Cleric Arrested on Charges of Sexually Assaulting Children

The first question I have is:  Is he a refugee since the vast majority of Somalis in the US are refugees, but I am seeing no definitive answer on that, so I figured this news would be best reported at ‘Frauds and Crooks’ rather than at my other blog, ‘Refugee Resettlement Watch.’ 

Although let me say that there are many of my RRW stories that could just as easily be reported here especially those stories involving the nine anti-Trump federal refugee contractors masquerading as ‘religious’ non-profits! See today’s post at RRW!

From the Houston Chronicle:

Islamic religious teacher arrested for alleged sex crimes against children

The Fort Bend County Sheriff’s Office has arrested an Islamic religious teacher for alleged sex crimes against children. Mohamed Omar Ali, 59, was charged with one count of sexual assault of a child and three counts of sexual indecency of a child following his Jan. 3 arrest.

At a press conference Monday morning, Fort Bend County Sheriff Troy Nehls said that all four victims were children under the age of 14. Ali is a Somalian national who was living in the U.S. illegally, according to Nehls. The bail for Ali was set at $125,000, but due to his illegal status, U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement put a detainer on Ali, and he is being held at the Fort Bend County jail, Nehls said.

According to Detective Michael Alexander of the Fort Bend County Sheriff’s Office, Ali gained access to his alleged victims by gaining the trust of the victim’s families, who invited him into their homes to teach the Quran to their children.

Other Members of the Islamic community are distancing themselves from Ali:

Shariq Abdul Ghani, Director of the Minaret Foundation and representative of the Muslim community, added that Ali was not an employee or official volunteer of any particular mosque, but he traveled to different mosques and schools in the area, establishing himself as a defacto religious leader.

In a phone interview on Monday afternoon, Ghani also said that leaders within the Houston Muslim community were unfamiliar with Ghani. Ali lives in the Houston area of Fort Bend County, according to a news release from the sheriff’s office.

[….]

Surveillance of Ali began in September of 2019, after victims reported the abuse to the FBI, but investigators believe the alleged crimes date back to 2013. Investigators said they believe there are many more victims who have not spoken up, and the sheriff’s office urges those victims to come forward.

More here.

I’ve been joking here at ‘Frauds and Crooks’ that Michigan and Florida seem to have the most ‘new American’ crooks and criminals, but Texas might be giving them a run for the money.

See yesterday at RRW about the Iraqi refugee arrested in Texas suspected of murdering a mother of three in Colorado.

As you can see, there is a lot of crossover between my blogs!

Iranian Terror Threat Exacerbated by Sanctuary Policies: Exposing the politicians’ deadly lies.

The United States and Iran has been on a collision course since the Carter administration and the seizure of the U.S. Embassy at Tehran, Iran on November 4, 1979.

Iran has issued a string of threats against the U.S. since that day.  Consider my earlier articles published in 2018: Iran Threatens U.S. And Its Allies With “Drugs, Refugees, Bombs And Assassination” and Congressional Hearing: Iranian Sleeper Cells Threaten U.S. So many hearings, so little action

On January 2, 2020 the New York Times reported, U.S. Strike in Iraq Kills Qassim Suleimani, Commander of Iranian Forces.  The Iranian response was reported on January 3, 2020 by Radio Free Europe / Liberty Radio: Khamenei, Other Iran Officials Vow ‘Severe Retaliation’ For Soleimani Killing.

The United States has been in the crosshairs of foreign terrorists for decades- and not just those affiliated with Iran.  Almost exclusively, these terror organizations have been affiliated with radical Islam.  Wikipedia posted a list of terror attacks in NYC up to and including 2017.

On September 11, 2001 the United States suffered the most devastating terror attacks in history.  By far, the greatest destruction and casualties occurred in NYC at the World Trade Center.

The 9/11 Commission, to which I provided testimony, was convened to not only document what had occurred, but to also determine what vulnerabilities enabled those attacks so that appropriate actions could be taken and measures implemented to thwart future terror attacks.

The 9/11 Commission ultimately authored the 9/11 Commission Report that identified multiple failures of the immigration system that enabled international terrorists, and not only the 19 hijacker/terrorists who carried out the savage attacks of 9/11 but other terrorists who attempted to carry out terror attacks in the U.S. in the decade preceding September 11, 2001.

The Executive Summary of the Final 9/11 Commission Report included this excerpt:

Permeable Borders and Immigration Controls

There were opportunities for intelligence and law enforcement to exploit al Qaeda’s travel vulnerabilities. Considered collectively, the 9/11 hijackers

  • included known al Qaeda operatives who could have been watchlisted;
  • presented passports manipulated in a fraudulent manner;
  • presented passports with suspicious indicators of extremism;
  • made detectable false statements on visa applications;
  • made false statements to border officials to gain entry into the United States;  and
  • violated immigration laws while in the United States.

Neither the State Department’s consular officers nor the Immigration and Naturalization Service’s inspectors and agents were ever considered full partners in a national counterterrorism effort. Protecting borders was not a national security issue before 9/11.

These obvious facts were not only a major theme of the 9/11 Commission report, but also for the staff of federal agents, from a variety of federal agencies, and for the attorneys who were assigned to assist the 9/11 Commission.

That staff produced an official report that focused on the myriad failures of the immigration system, 9/11 and  Terrorist Travel – Staff Report of the National Commission on Terrorist Attacks Upon the United States.

The preface of this report begins with the following paragraph:

It is perhaps obvious to state that terrorists cannot plan and carry out attacks in the United States if they are unable to enter the country. Yet prior to September 11, while there were efforts to enhance border security, no agency of the U.S. government thought of border security as a tool in the counterterrorism arsenal. Indeed, even after 19 hijackers demonstrated the relative ease of obtaining a U.S. visa and gaining admission into the United States, border security still is not considered a cornerstone of national security policy. We believe, for reasons we discuss in the following pages, that it must be made one.

Over the years Iran has quietly and covertly moved their sleeper agents into the United States to scope out potential targets and embed their operatives to pre-position them.  Several have been arrested.

While our officials know who they have found, they obviously don’t know who they have not found.

I wrote about one of those sleepers, a naturalized citizen who was from Lebanon, in my article, Hezbollah Sleeper Agent Convicted Of Plotting U.S. Terror Attacks.

The threats posed by sleeper agents have been the subject of a series of Congressional hearings and yet the federal government, even after the terror attacks of September 11, 2001 has failed abysmally at addressing the failures of the immigration system while sending American troops into harm’s way around the world.

Far more is involved than securing our dangerous southern border.  Immigration fraud undermines the integrity of the entire immigration system yet even after the terror attacks of 9/11, when it was well understood that immigration fraud was the key method of entry and embedding for international terrorists.

This vulnerability was the predication for my extensive article, Immigration Laws, Lies That Kill.

The only way to uncover fraud and locate aliens who violate our immigration laws and those who may enter into criminal conspiracies to violate our immigration laws including human traffickers is to have field agents conduct investigations and make arrests.

There are, nevertheless, precious few ICE agents.  While the TSA (Transportation Security Administration) has 45,000 employees, our military has more than 1.2 million members, however, ICE (Immigration and Customs Enforcement) only has about 6,000 agents for the entire United States with only about one-third of those agents devoting their efforts to the enforcement of our immigration laws.

In essence our politicians have, by design, turned America into a Sanctuary Country.

This lunacy is vastly exacerbated by the creation of Sanctuary Cities and Sanctuary States that openly, gleefully and contumaciously obstruct immigration law enforcement and of late, have taken to issuing driver’s licenses to illegal aliens and even blocking access to DMV computers in New York and New Jersey.  This outrageous betrayal of America and Americans was the focus of my recent article, New York State Blocks ICE and Border Patrol Access to DMV Database.

Now let’s consider the reaction of New York City’s mayor, Bill de Blasio to the latest Iranian threats as reported by the January 3, 2020 edition of the Daily Mail: ‘We are at a state of war’: NYC mayor’s Iran warning as Homeland Security braces for attacks on U.S. soil – and sleeper terror cells could already be here.

That report quoted de Blasio:

‘No one has to be reminded that New York City is the number one terror target in the United States. We have to recognize that this creates a whole series of dangerous possibilities for our city,’ de Blasio said.

‘We have plenty of knowledge of previous efforts by Iranian proxies to scout and target locations in New York City. Hezbollah and others have made it a point in recent years… We know there’s been an effort to target and prepare to attack in New York City in the past.’

The mayor said the threat has changed significantly given the resources that a state such as Iran has compared to non-state organizations like Al Qaeda or ISIS.

‘It’s just a world of difference,’ de Blasio said.

In a series of tweets later on Friday, de Blasio added: ‘We are in an unprecedented situation today, but the NYPD is ready for any scenario. New Yorkers will see heightened security at locations around the city, but there is NO credible and specific threat at this time. If you see something, say something.

‘The NYPD has a strong relationship with our security and intelligence partners around the country and the world. They will be working together non-stop to keep New Yorkers safe, and I have absolute faith in them. Everyone should go about their lives unafraid.

The last paragraph is an utter, bald-faced lie and de Blasio knows it!  Sanctuary policies effectively obstruct ICE from carrying out its vital duties in apparent violation of 8 U.S. Code § 1324.  Immigration law enforcement is a major factor in the investigation of foreign terrorists who operate on American soil.

De Blasio and every candidate for every significant elected position must be asked, without equivocation, “Have you read the ‘9/11 Commission Report’ and the ‘9/11 Staff Report’ in their entirety?”  As a follow-up, they must also answer the question, “How does your position on immigration square with the findings of those reports?”

VIDEO: Tucker Carlson Nails It! All You Need to Know About GOP Governors Who Turned on Trump!

Editor: I don’t like to cross-post between my two blogs (I fear it looks lazy!), but it is very important that what Tucker Carlson reported last night gets the widest distribution possible. (I don’t know how many of you read RRW.)

Much of what is discussed in Carlson’s piece is that the Christian federal contractors pushing for more refugees are not truly ‘religious’ charities when they are paid by taxpayers for their supposed good works—so the topic is apropos for ‘Frauds and Crooks.’


In just a little over 5 minutes last night Tucker Carlson in a segment on the US Refugee Admissions Program and the President’s efforts to reform it, explains exactly what we have been saying for weeks in dozens of posts.

Especially interesting is the focus on phony Christian charity as Carlson’s millions of viewers learn that it is federal contractors masquerading as charitable religious groups that have successfully lobbied Republican governors—18 so far—to thumb their noses at Trump and ask for more refugees for their states!

It is vitally important that you send this far and wide. Hat tip: Brenda.

The segment begins here:

Don’t miss my post yesterday about CAIR sending wet kisses to Maryland Governor Larry Hogan when he became the 18th governor to say his state welcomes more poverty from the Middle East, Africa and Asia.

U.S. Continues To Dominate World In Legalizing Foreigners

So much virtue signaling. So little truth.

For three years now we’ve endured a deluge of media stories and Democrats on high horses hrumph-hrumphing us that limiting immigration is “not who we are” — which ignores the first half of the 20th century.

“Trump has waged an unrelenting assault on our values and our history as a nation of immigrants,” said Joe Biden, unveiling his plan on far more open immigration if he is elected. “It’s wrong, and it stops when Joe Biden is elected president.”

Not a word of what Biden said was true. And now we can see that the entire partisan picture painted by the media has been either wrong, or wildly out of context — which is no surprise to regular readers. And this comes from no less a source than PolitiFact, which is staffed by media members and therefore is relentlessly partisan in its pronouncements.

The United States legalizes nearly twice as many foreigners as the next three closest nations — combined. In fact, despite what you hear in Democratic debates and read in the pages of the New York Times, America is still the haven of the world, the bright shining city on a hill, and this is proven by the masses coming here…and by the number of foreigners legalized.

This revelation started when Republican Sen. Ron Johnson tweeted last Nov. 13 that, “The United States is the only nation that “grants legal permanent residency to more than a million people per year.”

For some reason, PolitiFact decided to fact-check this six weeks later. Maybe they had a quota to reach of showing they would do conservatives being right, too. Because it is hard to see why they would check this claim otherwise.

Here’s what they reported.

“According to Department of Homeland Security data from 2017, the most recent year available, the number of people who were given legal permanent residence in the U.S. was still over 1.1 million.”

They rated Johnson’s statement as true. Thanks, guys! But also in their reporting, they included these data points which give some great context as to the next three nations in line behind the U.S.:

“In 2018, Canada exceeded its goal of accepting 310,000 permanent residents by about 10,000. The target for 2019 was set at about 313,000, while 2020 is set at 340,000. (We’ll see if Canadians are down with that new, high level.)

Earlier this year, Australia limited its migration cap to accepting only 160,000 permanent new residents a year over the next four years, with its government emphasizing border protection.

New Zealand accepted 142,900 migrants in 2018, which their government considered a high number. Through May 2019, roughly 144,900 migrants arrived in the country this year.”

It’s ironic that it is English-speaking, Christian heritage, majority white Western countries — the very formula assailed by the political left as all that is evil in the world — that are doing most of the work taking in the world’s immigrants. But there it is.

And leading the way, by a blowout margin, remains the United States — under President Trump no less.

Is there one issue on which Democrats can run honestly?

Connecticut: Man converts to Islam, tries to join the Islamic State to “fight for Allah”

“About a week later, another individual ‘who attends an Islamic Center in another state’ told authorities McCormick ‘expressed a desire to travel to Syria to “fight for Allah,”‘ the affidavit states. The 26-year-old attempted to justify his extremist ideologies, the individual told authorities, by quoting and citing various religious doctrines, although ‘he did so incorrectly.’”

It’s good that people from the Islamic Center turned in Kevin McCormick, but how did he cite Islamic doctrines “incorrectly”? We are constantly told that jihadis have an incorrect understanding of Islam, but explanations of how it is incorrect are rare and vague. This also leads to other questions that never get answered: if Kevin McCormick’s understanding of Islam, as well as that of other jihadis, was incorrect, where did he get it? Why was the Islamic Center not able to disabuse him of his misunderstanding of Islam? And why do all jihadis misunderstand Islamic doctrine in exactly the same way?

“‘Jihad Is the Way to Go’: Connecticut Man Charged With Trying to Fight for ISIS,” by Seamus Hughes and Pilar Melendez, Daily Beast, December 19, 2019 (thanks to The Religion of Peace):

After tips from Islamic Centers in two different states, authorities arrested a Connecticut man they allege attempted to travel overseas to join the Islamic State.

Kevin Imam McCormick, 26, was charged on Oct. 21 with providing material support to a foreign terrorist organization after a months-long FBI investigation and allegedly pledging his allegiance to ISIS and its leader in a video.

“I do like, I do like ISIS because Abu Musa was like my hero, I cry when I watch that video,” he said during one conversation with an FBI informant, according to court documents unsealed Thursday….

According to the federal affidavit, the FBI was first alerted to McCormick, a former truck driver, on Aug. 24, when members from another state reported that McCormick had stated “we should support ISIS” and “Jihad is the way to go.” The community members also told authorities McCormick had asked about “circumcision and wanted a doctor that could help him with the procedure.”

About a week later, another individual “who attends an Islamic Center in another state” told authorities McCormick “expressed a desire to travel to Syria to ‘fight for Allah,’” the affidavit states. The 26-year-old attempted to justify his extremist ideologies, the individual told authorities, by quoting and citing various religious doctrines, although “he did so incorrectly.”…

Authorities also state that after McCormick was fired as a truck driver in September, he attempted to purchase a firearm and a knife—but was declined after he admitted to a sales clerk the weapons were “not for an animal.”…

On Oct. 12, the former truck driver allegedly attempted to fly to Jamaica, but was denied boarding by the Department of Homeland Security. Shortly after that encounter, he met with an FBI informant and expressed his desire to travel to Syria “in order to join ISIS,” according to the court documents….

“I’ve been ready for quite a long time now. I just need help to get out of here. I just, if I could get to the Muslim country,” McCormick allegedly told the second FBI informant through a secure encrypted app, before stating, “We’re living in this horrible place, like I can’t do it. I have to go fight…I can like feel it in my arm, my heart, like because I know how well I can fight..Because I got brothers dying..I know that they need my help bro.”…

In the presence of an FBI informant, McCormick recorded two videos on Oct. 19 pledging allegiance to Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, the Islamic State leader, one in English and the other in his native language of Jamaican Patois, authorities said. Al-Baghdadi was killed in a U.S. military operation one week later….

McCormick’s Facebook profile, which is still active, has signs of his support of jihadist ideology. A week before his arrest, he posted a video of an alleged Islamic State prison break in Syria with the comment, “ALLAHU AKBAR!!!!”

He posted a picture of U.S soldiers three days prior, calling them “kuffars,” or nonbelievers. McCormick used the same description to comment on a news story about the Taliban and U.S. peace talk negotiations.

Last summer, he complained about American Muslims, posting on Facebook: “The Muslims in this country are Americanized not real Muslims.”

McCormick also posted anti-Semitic conspiracy memes about the Rothchilds controlling all the world’s banks and a news story about an Israeli strike against Syria with the comment, “damn jews.”…
