French Inaction on known terror suspects brings more death

May 14, 2018

Islamic terrorism returns to France, knife, not gun used

The NRA has become a convenient whipping boy for the left, in instances where mass murder is committed with a gun. But increasingly, terrorist acts are carried out by vehicles being used as weapons, deliberately plowing into crowds. Knife attacks are becoming more frequent here and in Western Europe. The Boston Marathon carnage was carried out by two brothers, whose parents had come to the United States seeking political asylum. They used pressure cookers as explosives, but still the NRA takes the brunt of the blame.

France suffered another bloody attack on Saturday. The assailant, who was shot and killed by police, has been identified as Khamzat Azimov, 21, a native of Chechnya, who  became a French citizen in 2010. Witnesses reported Azimov repeatedly yelled, “Allahu akhbar” during the Paris attack. The French press reported that “a video emerged Sunday online purporting to show the attacker swearing allegiance to Islamic State leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi.”

Not long after the rampage that killed one and seriously injured four others in a busy tourist area, the Islamic State took responsibility for the carnage.

France has a state security anti-terrorism watch list on which this most recent knife wielder has appeared since 2016 — but the attacker was neither detained nor deported. This was the second deadly attack in two months by a person flagged on the watch list. More than 230 people In France have been killed by ISIS-inspired jihadists in the past three years.

Without acknowledging the lack of follow-up on the collected data, French government spokesman Benjamin Griveaux said, “It is, once again, a way of life, our way of life, which has come under a cowardly attack.”

News accounts defended the government’s defenseless actions referring to renewed calls for enforcement as originating from “the conservative opposition.”

Sound familiar?

The leader of France’s largest opposition party renewed his call on President Emmanuel Macron to detain “the most dangerous individuals” on the watch list and expel all foreigners listed on it. “There is no longer room, Mr. President, for this blind inaction which has lasted too long,” Laurent Wauquiez of the conservatives Les Republicains said in a statement.

“What use can this file be if we don’t use it to ensure that these time bombs cannot do any harm on French soil?” National Front leader Marine Le Pen wrote on Twitter.

But Griveaux contended: “Unfortunately, there is no way of stopping this sort of incident from happening.” The security watch list was a key tool for police and intelligence services, he said, adding that “experts were opposed to using it as a basis for roundups or deportations.”

Paris is nearly 4,000 miles from Washington, D.C. though the same foolish arguments leave citizens at risk.

Trump triumphs: His successes resonate

May 11, 2018

The week has been filled with good news for Americans, and others around the globe, courtesy of President Donald Trump.

Three American citizens detained for over a year have been released by North Korea. They are in good health and we did not pay an extortive ransom in the manner of Barack Obama. In fact, not only did President Trump negotiate their release, he was able to bring the leaders of North and South Korea together for a handshake with talks being scheduled, after 70 years of saber rattling hostilities that have destabilized the region and worried world leaders.

 A June 12 date is set for President Trump to meet with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un in Singapore.

The Washington Times cites a Pew Research poll showing Trump’s across the political spectrum 71% approval rating for the “powerful, positive, developments” in negotiating directly with North Korea over its nuclear program.

The 2015 deal, formally known as the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action, provided Tehran billions of dollars in relief from sanctions in exchange for its less than trustworthy agreement to rein in its nuclear program. President Trump, no fan of the Barack Obama-era scheme negotiated by John Kerry, stated he will refuse to extend U.S. sanctions relief to Iran unless it is renegotiated.

Few have forgotten traitorous Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl, who abandoned his post in Afghanistan, putting his fellow soldiers at risk as they searched for him. In 2014 Barack Obama swapped him for five Taliban murderers being held in Guantanamo Bay.

In another disastrous scheme, Obama sent plane loads of cash totaling $1.7 billion to the “Death to America” chanting dictatorship in Iran for the release of hostages —- which Obama denied doing even as news of the payments were revealed.

Fortune Magazine quotes Sen. Marco Rubio, who, in 2016, introduced legislation to ban  future payments for hostages. “President Obama’s disastrous nuclear deal with Iran was sweetened with an illicit ransom payment and billions of dollars for the world’s foremost state sponsor of terrorism. The U.S. government should not be in the business of negotiating with terrorists and paying ransom money in exchange for the release of American hostages. Doing so puts more Americans in danger, as President Obama himself admitted.”

The icing on Trump’s economic cake follows news that U.S. unemployment has dramatically fallen to 3.9 percent. Black and Hispanic unemployment reached record lows as the economy has continued its upward spiral.

We are witnessing evidence of the difference between putting a businessman with negotiating skills in the White House as compared to elevating a leftist community organizer past his point of competency.


DACA eligible illegals invoke Satan, ritually murder teen girl

March 5, 2018

Jeff Flake, who never saw a young illegal he didn’t embrace as  representing “the best of America” remains silent on vicious criminal gangs

In the time he has left in the U.S. Senate, short-termer Jeff Flake has pledged he will continue to fight for the normalization — granting amnesty, and eventual citizenship — to the so-called DACA /Dreamers — illegals under age 36 who claim they were brought here in defiance of our nation’s sovereign border and U.S. law, by their illegal alien parents, when they were children. Though their claims are impossible to verify, Flake preposterously states, “They represent the best of America.”

John Binder, writing for Breitbart does a fine job detailing Flake’s baloney,

If, like Flake, you have no principles and naively fall prey to contrivances, this revolting report in the Los Angeles Times should pluck at your heartstrings and bring tears to your eyes. The question is which “victim” would move you to tears?

Would it be Miguel Alvarez-Flores, 22, and Diego Hernandez-Rivera, 18, two illegals perpetrating MS-13 gang violence and Satanism, while drugging, raping, torturing and ultimately murdering  one of three teenage girls they kidnapped in what was described as a satanic ritual on their young murder victim?

The depravity of their acts is mind-boggling. MS-13, also called Mara Salvatrucha, is believed to have been founded in Los Angeles in the mid-1980s by illegals fleeing civil war in El Salvador. It is now a major international criminal enterprise with tentacles throughout the United States.

Leaders of the Central American street gang have determined their members are not violent enough. Their aim is strike terror in the hearts of American citizens. The gang, with about 10,000 members in the U.S., is notorious for its propensity for gruesome violence. Initiation requires committing murder. Many gang members have been convicted of grisly homicides, some using machetes to behead their victims.

Barack Obama’s lenient immigration policies aided in allowing the gang to flourish. President Trump has made eradicating MS-13 a law enforcement priority for his administration  —  signing an executive order directing all federal law enforcement agencies to take on gangs, transnational criminal organizations and cartels, declaring it a  policy of his administration “to dismantle, decimate and eradicate MS-13.”

Yet we are led to believe that all of the youthful illegals contribute to our society and deserve to be welcomed into the U.S. It’s important to remember Jeff Flake’s amnesty proposals would include Miguel and Diego, had they not been arrested.

The Washington Examiner provides wide-ranging facts about the DACA/”dreamers” Jeff Flake and his like-thinking amnesty mentor John McCain, conveniently omit.


Decoding the deceptive language of AZ Republicese

January 8, 2018

Sunday’s edition of the Arizona Republic showcases some sterling examples of liberal skew. In a featured article under ‘Arizona Politics,’ McCain and Flake’s reliably sycophantic assigned reporter Dan Nowicki is back to marginalizing Dr. Kelli Ward, who is running for the U.S. Senate seat soon to be vacated by Jeff Flake. He’s departing due to bottom dragging polling numbers after repeatedly deprecating candidate, and now president, Donald Trump. In the end, he was left with no other face-saving option other than retirement from his.$174,000 (plus benefits) job.

Playing his job security role of political assassin, Nowicki tries and fails miserably linking Kelli Ward, a physician and two term state senator, to unsavory characters across the country. Magicians call this trick “misdirection.”

How best to take down the accomplished woman who would bring conservative stature to Arizona’s senatorial delegation? Nowicki missed the mark by referring to her as a “border security hawk.” Keeping our sovereign border secure is a plus, not a minus to the grassroots Republican base that elected Donald Trump President of the United States.

In the same edition of the newspaper was this peculiar headline: ‘Migrant convicted of murder arrested.’  No, it wasn’t a murderous swallow migrating the 6,000 miles to Capistrano, California from Goya, Argentina. It was an illegal Guatemalan previously convicted of murder in 2005, who served a ridiculously light sentence of four years in prison and was deported. He was caught reentering the U.S. via Southern Arizona.

In its press release headline, U.S. Customs and Border Protection correctly refers to the murderer as an illegal alien. The newspaper adheres to the liberal guidelines in the AP Stylebook, which abhors the words. “illegal” and “alien,“ especially when they abut one another.

The Republic cites a suspicious poll that says the vast majority of Arizonans don’t support construction of at border wall. North American Research Partnership is hardly unbiased. Additionally fomenting the positions it does is a money maker.

Missing from the newspaper’s coverage is the deadly gun battle on the outskirts of the Mexican seaside city of Acapulco that left 11 dead Sunday.  Acapulco is Mexico’s murder capital, the center of opium poppy production. War-like violence has been fed by turf wars over the distribution of street drugs such as heroin, cocaine and methamphetamine.

The former resort city was one of Mexico’s most famous, and for decades served as a playground for the rich and famous. In recent years, however, Acapulco has been overtaken by vicious gang warfare and is now ranked one of the most murderous cities in the world.

The U.S. Department of State has issued this all-encompassing, dire warning for travelers to Mexico. But Mexico remains the Arizona Republic‘s widely touted business partner we should be cultivating to better ourselves. These corrupt, unskilled and uneducated foreign nationals, enmeshed in murderous drug wars and lawlessness are those we should welcome and provide benefits and amnesty?  Something is definitely wrong with this picture.


NYC subway terrorist entered US via chain migration

December 13, 2017

The Department of Homeland Security has confirmed that the suspect in Monday morning’s failed rush hour suicide pipe bomb attack on a Port Authority bus terminal and subway station in New York City entered the United States from Bangladesh in 2011 through one of the chain migration categories. DHS says ISIS-inspired Akayed Ullah, 27, is a green card holder who arrived here on an F43 visa, according to this Breitbart News report.

Numbers USA explains that an F43 visa is issued to a foreign national who is the child of an adult sibling of a U.S. citizen. It falls under the 4th preference of the family preference green card categories, which allows 65,000 green cards each year to be issued to adult siblings and their spouses and children of citizens.

Tyler Houlton, a DHS spokesperson tweeted:

.@DHSgov can confirm that the suspect was admitted to the United States after presenting a passport displaying an F43 family immigrant visa in 2011. The suspect is a Lawful Permanent Resident from Bangladesh who benefited from extended family chain migration.

White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders also made reference to the information during her daily press briefing.

There is no question that the terrorist was admitted to the United States after presenting a passport displaying an F-43 family immigrant visa in 2011. The immediate issue is revoking such a dangerous policy. President Trump’s policy calls for an end to chain migration, the method used by Akayed Ullah to enter the U.S. If his policy had been in place, the attacker would not have been allowed into the country.  President Trump has appropriately advocated for responsible and total immigration reform. 

During a rally last weekend in Pensacola, Florida, Pres. Trump called on Congress to end Chain Migration.

Numbers USA President Roy Beck has an entire section devoted to the Chain Migration scheme that leaves Americans needlessly vulnerable to those who mean us harm. The website contains a wealth of information that is not found elsewhere.

U.S. Rep. Dave Brat (R-VA) has introduced the American Labor, Wages, and Sovereignty Act (American LAWS Act), H.R. 4340 with Congressman Lamar Smith (R-TX.). The legislation contains provisions to eliminate the visa lottery program, end chain migration, and institute mandatory E-Verify. Read the full text of H.R. 4340.

The visa lottery program is also a disaster. L. Francis Cissna @DHSgov saying visa lottery standards are very low,“ stated “Random lotteries, extended family connections, that’s not the way to run an immigration system.”  This is a topic with which he has more than a passing familiarity. Cissna is the Director of U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services


SCOTUS OKs Trump’s sensible travel restrictions — for now

December 5, 2017

Left-wing media placing political correctness before safety, reconfigure restrictions as a “Muslim ban”

Good news came Monday in the form of a U.S. Supreme Court decision which handed a victory to President Donald Trump by allowing imposition of his travel restrictions affecting people from six terror sponsoring countries to go into effect. Countries on the list are Chad, Iran, Libya, North Korea, Syria, and Yemen. Some Venezuelan government officials are also denied access to the U.S.

But the high court’s order is a waffle.

A federal court in Hawaii blocked the government from implementing the Trump administration’s Sept. 24 order allowing enhanced vetting and blocking entry into the U.S. by potential terrorists or other public safety threats. A federal judge in Maryland barred the government from enforcing the order relating to foreign nationals of affected countries claiming to have relationships with persons or institution in the United States. Lawyers representing the administration took the case to the Supreme Court last month seeking to implement all of the provisions providing security to Americans. 

The Trump administration argued that the September 24 order is different from its predecessors not only because of the “extensive worldwide review process” that led to its creation, but also because it applies to countries where Muslims are not a majority.

Still, the challenges go forward. The far left and frequently overturned San Francisco-based 9th Circuit Court of Appeals is scheduled to hear oral argument on Wednesday, with oral arguments to follow in the 4th Circuit, based in Richmond, Virginia on Friday.

Liberal Justices Ruth Bader Ginsburg (Clinton appointee) and Sonia Sotomayor (Obama appointee) dissented from Monday’s Supreme Court opinion.

Evil strikes Sunday worshippers, left places blame 

November 6, 2017

Atheist killer’s former in-laws attended the church

According to reports, a 26-year-old coward named Devin Patrick Kelley entered First Baptist Church in the small town of Sutherland Springs, Texas as the congregation of 50 was at prayer.

Wearing full combat gear, this monster mowed down the worshippers, slaughtering at least 26 and wounding 20 others, including children and a pregnant woman.

A former Air Force airman, Kelley was court martialed, served a year in the brig and was dishonorably discharged for assaulting his wife and child in 2012.

As he tried to flee the scene, two heroic men pursued the murderous assailant, alerting authorities during the chase. When the killer tried to run from his crashed car, one of the men drew his legal firearm on Kelley, who died at the scene. It is unclear whether the man’s weapon took Kelley’s life.

Leftists are once again politicizing carnage, blaming Republicans and calling for “gun control,” while conspicuously disregarding the fact that it was armed courageous neighbors who tracked the murderer down as he attempted to escape.

In Dec. 2012, we posted Dem gun hypocrites, which exposes liberal double standards.

Will they next be calling for bans on pressure cookers and rented trucks from Home Depot?
