British Islamists urged not to fight in Syria or Iraq by imams

A large number of the United Kingdom’s Muslim clerics signed and released an open letter on Friday imploring young Muslim men and women not to allow themselves to be recruited by Islamists to travel to Syria or Iraq to offer their services to groups such as the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS) or other terrorist groups.

In their open letter, more than 100 clerics from various mosques in Great Britain — serving either Shiite or Sunni Muslims — have cautioned British Muslims not to become part of sectarian divisions or violence occurring in Syria and Iraq and to turn away offers to travel to those embattled countries to fight on behalf of the jihadists.

Concerns in Britain continue over the large number of young British citizens going to Syria to help Islamist groups in the rebellion against government forces and who are expected to return home more radicalized and more of a threat to carry out terrorist attacks in the United Kingdom.

In June, Britain’s Prime Minister David Cameron lamented the fact that the foreign fighters with the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria pose “the biggest threat” to Britain’s national security.

TheBritish intelligence agency MI5 estimates that about 500 British extremists are already fighting in the Middle East, but many of them are expected to return home, possibly with assignments to commit terrorist acts.

Officials at MI5 claim that “[t]he majority of terrorist attack plots in the UK have been planned by UK residents. A recent example of a plot to cause mass-casualties with multiple improvised explosive devices was disrupted under Operation EXAMINE, which was planned by Birmingham based extremists. Eleven of these individuals were convicted in March 2013 for a variety of terrorist offences. There are several thousand individuals in the UK who support violent extremism or are engaged in Islamist extremist activity.”

According to an Examiner news story last May, “British Islamists are the largest group of foreign fighters in Syria helping al-Qaida and other terrorist groups to battle the Syrian military and helping to overthrow the brutal and oppressive regime of President Bashir al-Assad. They are also considered the most violent and murderous terrorists fighting against the Syrian military, according to one of the rebel commanders for a Western-sponsored rebel army in a letter to a London newspaper.”

Alert: Al-Qaida bombmaker in Yemen instills fear in counterterrorists globally

by Jim Kouri on Monday, July 7th, 2014

This is article 773 of 773 in the topic Terrorism

Counterterrorists throughout the world including the United States are concerned with two developments within the Islamic jihad: new explosive ordinance that defies airport security scanners and the Yemeni al-Qaida man, Ibrahim Al Asiri, with the expertise to create horrific improvised explosive devices (IEDs), according to reports on Friday.

The U.S. State Department and the Department of Homeland Security issued travelers warnings for those civilians flying to the U.S. from airports in Europe and the Middle East. The Transportation Security Agency (TSA) also announced that there will be enhanced airport scanning procedures since intelligence analysts warned the Obama administration about this latest threat.

Terrorism experts, such a former anti-terrorism unit member Det. Michael M. Snopes, say that their primary suspect in this new threat is Ibrahim Al Asiri, a 32-year-old Saudi said to be hiding out with Al Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula (AQAP) in Yemen’s southern provinces.

“President Barack Obama and his news media sycophants call tell Americans that al-Qaida is ‘on the run’ till they’re blue in the face; that doesn’t change the reality of Muslim terrorists continuing their global jihad,” said former police anti-terrorism unit member, Thomas McHughes.

Regardless of pronouncements by President Obama and his national security team downplaying the global treat — which includes the United States and its overseas interests — posed by the Islamist terrorism organization known as al-Qaida, a newUnited Nations report released to Middle East news agencies and publications on Friday claims that besides the Iraqi insurrection, terrorist-linked unrest in Syria, Egypt, Libya, Somalia, Kenya, Nigeria, Uganda, and Saudi Arabia’s next-door neighbor Yemen is growing in intensity.

The UN Security Council report as covered by news organizations on Friday claims that al-Qaida remains a major challenge to the peaceful transition stage in Yemen. In recent years, al-Qaida in the Arabian Peninsula (AQAP) has become arguably the more dangerous terrorist group than the original al-Qaida led by Osama bin Laden until his 2011 death at the hands of U.S. Navy Seals. AQAP (which Yemenis simply call al-Qaida) branched outfrom bin Laden’s al-Qaida group and but it still maintains an ideology based on bin Laden’s extremist form of Sunni Islam.

AQAP retained its name when it re-grouped in Yemen, being joined at the hip with the local al-Qaida organization already operating there. In Yemen, AQAP presents a powerful alternative to that country’s weak central government. Eventually AQAP became almost totally independent of the original al-Qaida, although it still follows the instructions of bin Laden’s successor, Ayman al-Zawahri.

The Security Council stressed in their report that the adoption by Yemen of a national counterterrorism law and the development of the national counterterrorism policy is paramount to achieving a peaceful transition to a secular, democratic government.

While President Barack Obama’s administration had ordered the training mission in Yemen to be suspended due to the political turmoil in that nation, the U.S. recently increased the number of military and police trainers into the country, according to anExaminer news story. The U.S. military and Central Intelligence Agency also re-introduced unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) attacks on terrorist targets.

Obama and media sycophants deceptive regarding Canadian healthcare system

by Jim Kouri on Monday, July 7th, 2014

This is article 683 of 683 in the topic Healthcare

During the hard-sell campaign to pass the Affordable Care Act of 2010, a/k/a Obamacare, proponents of the Obamacare program made comparisons between the U.S. free-market system and the Canadian socialized model, but a new Canadian public policy think-tank report released on Thursday appears to fly in the face of President Barack Obama’s — and his sycophants in the news media’s — claims.

Many Americans, including physicians, believe that Obamacare is merely the first step in the Democratic Party’s ultimate goal for the United States to have a single-payer program, very similar to the Canadian model. Many Democrats have been, and continue to be vocal about Obamacare not going far enough as far as government control of healthcare.

In fact, in 2007 filmmaker Michael Moore released his highly partisan motion picture “Sicko,” to rave reviews. The movie condemned the U.S. healthcare system and praised the Canadian system using the usual Moore canards that have been proven in his prior films. And White House mouthpiece, Bob Beckel, on Fox News Channel’s “The Five” often admits he and other Democrats want a single-payer program modeled after Canada’s.

Yet, according to the nonpartisan Fraser Institute, with headquarters located in Vancouver, Canada, a typical Canadian family unit comprised of a father, mother and two children will pay up to $11,786.00 this year for public healthcare benefits. And that pays for insurance for care that is basically rationed by government bureaucrats.

“Healthcare in Canada is not free—while Canadians may not pay directly for medical services, they pay a substantial amount of money for healthcare through taxes,” wroteBacchus Barua, study co-author and senior economist in the Fraser Institute’s Center for Health Policy Studies.

Unfortunately, a majority of the Canadian people are kept ignorant of what healthcare truly costs them since they don’t receive invoices for any portion of physician and hospital services covered by tax-funded healthcare “insurance.” The Canadian government’s regular tax revenue — not a dedicated medical tax or surcharge — pays for healthcare, while premiums cover only a fraction of the costs for medical treatment.

“One of the unfortunate realities of Canada’s monopolistic [single-payer] healthcare system is that some people feel they have no choice but to seek the care they need outside the country,” Bacchus notes.

Canadians, much like U.S. military veterans, often must wait months for treatment, and the study reveals that a number of Canadian become medical tourists.

Fraser Institute study estimates the amount of taxes Canadian families will pay for public health insurance in 2014, and by how much it has increased over the last decade. For example:

  • In 2014, the average single individual earning roughly $42,000 will pay $4,381 for public health care insurance.
  • A family of two adults and two children earning approximately $118,000 in 2014 will pay $11,786 for public health care insurance.
  • The 10 percent of Canadian families with the lowest income will pay an average of $523 for public health care insurance in 2014.
  • In 2014, the 10 percent of Canadian families with an average income of $57,818 will pay an average of $5,522.

Lawmakers, Border agents call for immediate deportations of ‘Obama kids’

by Jim Kouri on Monday, July 7th, 2014

This is article 443 of 445 in the topic Immigration

During the Sunday morning news shows, a number of Republicans and advocates for legal immigration called on President Barack Obama to deport the children — and adults hiding among them — as they amass at the Texas border and that deportation should to take place immediately.

What’s turned into a full-fledged national crisis has led the Obama administration officials to pretend it’s struggling to maintain the overwhelmed detention and processing systems and claim that they may deport some but extend asylum laws for others, according toRep. Raul Labrador, R-Idaho, who appeared on NBC’s “Meet the Press.”

Knowing that David Gregory enjoys verbal confrontations with Republicans, Rep. Labrador, who is Latino, said, “I kept thinking that you need to change your slogan at the beginning of your show,” Labrador stated. “Instead of, ‘If it’s Sunday, it’s Meet the Press,’ it should be ‘If it’s Sunday, it’s another administration official making stuff up on Meet the Press.’ It’s really shameful.”

President Obama and his Democratic Party minions have argued that increased flow of border crossings is the result of deteriorating conditions in Central America. But Congressman Labrador and other GOP critics, blamed Obama’s “Dreamers” executive order for initiating a human tsunami.

“It’s not by accident that these people suddenly show up at practically the same time. There are plane loads of illegal aliens flying into the United States. It’s another example of Obama’s lawlessness,” said political strategist Michael Baker.

“The thing this administration needs to do is immediately deport these families, these children,” Labrador said on “Meet the Press:. “I know it sounds harsh, I know it sounds difficult. But they’re creating a crisis.”

Meanwhile on ABC’s “This Week,” the commissioner of Customs and Border Protection claimed in an interview that the illegal aliens flooding the Texas border from Mexico are no danger to Americans, despite reports of teenagers wearing “gang tats” (tattoos).

CBP Commissioner Gil Kerlikowske told the interviewer that he is “confident that we have the resources” to deal with the increased border traffic and that the Department of Homeland Security’s Secretary Jeh Johnson deployed an extra 150 agents to the Rio Grande Valley in addition to the 115 agents that were already moving in.

“The American people are supposed to take comfort in 265 more Border agents sent to deal with thousands of illegal border crossings? We sent more men and women to Baghdad last week,” former police detective and drug enforcement officer Carlos Gutierrez.

Although U.S. Border Patrol agents were told to keep their mouths shut by the Obama administration, one of them, Border Patrol Agent Hector Garza appearing on CNN claimed that the federal government, a/k/a the Obama administration, is “aiding, abetting and facilitating the smuggling of illegal aliens across the border.”

Agent Garza went on to say that the Obama administration is merely filing the information given by of the illegal aliens and requesting that they report back to an immigration hearing based on the honor system. Garza alleged on CNN that most of the illegal aliens won’t report back for any immigration hearing and they’ll join the ranks of the 11-15 millions illegal aliens already in the United States.

NSA scandal: U.S. double agent arrested by German police

by Jim Kouri on Monday, July 7th, 2014

This is article 33 of 33 in the topic Espionage

In the aftermath of the controversy over the United States spy programs such as “Prism,” one agent working for German intelligence agency was arrested and charged with suspicion of spying for the U.S., according to European news sources on Friday.

The suspect allegedly gathered classified information about a special committee set up by the German parliament to investigate accusations of U.S. espionage including the stories regarding the U.S. National Security Agency (NSA) bugging the phone of Chancellor Angela Merkel as part of President Barack Obama’s huge surveillance program.

European news media are reporting that the suspect arrested this week is an employee of the federal intelligence agency, known as the BND. The only description given is that he’s a white male in his early 30′s. The German prosecutor’s office provided no addition information.

Media sources claim that Ms. Merkel was informed about the arrest, as were the members of the parliamentary committee investigating the activities of foreign intelligence agencies in Germany.

“The matter is serious, it is clear,” according to the German Allgemeine newspaper, while Der Spiegel news magazine said “the man was believed to have passed secret documents to a U.S. contact in exchange for money.”

The news about the NSA’s global spy program — including programs such as Prism — had allegedly been detailed in classified documents stolen and leaked by a former contracted intelligence analyst, Edward Snowden, who is still a fugitive living in Russia.

U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry in responding to allegations that the Obama administration bugged the offices of its allies, told the European media that such activities aren’t unusual in geopolitical relations. Kerry said that he’s also eager to find out the truth about the accusations.

“Operation of the Section 702 (Prism) program has been subjected to judicial oversight and extensive internal supervision,” the Privacy and Civil Liberties Oversight Board (PCLOB) wrote in a report, “and the board has found no evidence of intentional abuse.”

Texas lawmaker and governor blame Obama for creating ‘refugee camps’

by Jim Kouri on Monday, July 7th, 2014

This is article 442 of 445 in the topic Immigration

Texas officials on Thursday claimed that President Barack Obama and his administration are turning U.S. military installations into “‘refugee camps” instead of working to secure the U.S.-Mexico border as a human tsunami illegal alien children continues to flood and overload the nation’s immigration system.

One U.S. congressman scolded President Barack Obama and his minions complaining that the U.S. military bases — and even the Border Patrol Academy in New Mexico — are fast becoming camps geared towards handling the large numbers of illegal alien children and teenagers, according to an Examiner news story.

“Our military bases are turning into refugee camps. I never thought I’d see this in the United States of America,” House Homeland Security Committee Chairman Michael McCaul, R-Texas, said in a statement.

Chairman McCaul and Texas’ Republican Gov. Rick Perry held a hearing in McAllen, Texas, which sits in the Rio Grande Valley, a community directly affected by what amounts to an immigration crisis. Perry, who has even deployed some Texas Rangers to aid in controlling the border incursions, practically begged Obama to perform his constitutional duty. “Secure this border, Mr. President,” Perry said as he received loud applause.

The Obama administration found itself lacking enough temporary detention or housing for the illegal alien minors awaiting immigration officials’ determinations. They being housed wherever space can be found including at the Border Patrol Training Academy and a number of military bases like Ft. Sill in Oklahoma and Lackland Air Force Base in Texas.

Gov. Perry told the news media that he will launch a multi-million dollar emergency fund in order to deploy state law enforcement agents from the Texas Department of Public Safety to help control the U.S.-Mexico border. He also stated that the Obama government needs to increase the number of Texas National Guard at the border.

Perry also complained about the lack of federal money being returned to the Texas state government and local police departments and hospitals. “The state should be reimbursed for the half-billion dollars it’s spent on border security over the past decade. We have been fulfilling a federal responsibility,” Perry said.

Rep. McCaul added that while many illegal alien supporters may believe they are on “the side of the angels” he points to the reality of this latest political exploitation by the radical left with the help of many so-called journalists:

“These children are being exploited by the drug cartels who are turning a profit by smuggling these kids to the U.S. at a cost of $5,000 to $8,000 per child. Many are under the age of 10, traveling thousands of miles alone through Mexico from Central America on buses or so called ‘death trains.’ These children are often subjected to beatings, starvation, sexual assault and are at risk of being trafficked. As a father of five, I cannot fathom handing my child over to a criminal and setting them out on this long and dangerous passage.”

Californians physically block illegal alien ‘dumping’ in their communities

by Jim Kouri on Wednesday, July 2nd, 2014

This is article 441 of 445 in the topic Immigration

In a move that some mainstream news outlets are characterizing as vigilantism, a number of Californians on Tuesday physically blocked the “dumping” of about 145 illegal aliens, transported from Texas, in their suburban communities forcing the Obama-ordered bus caravan to retreat back to the Mexican border, according former police chief Douglas Huddleston.

According to Chief Huddleston, American citizens in southern California are beginning to rise up to protect their homes from Obama’s encouraged invasion by illegal aliens, some of whom are wearing “gang tattoos” and have not undergone any sort of screening process.

Hundred of illegal aliens, mostly women and youths had been processed at a Homeland Security Department (DHS) facility in Texas and were shipped on government buses to theCalifornia’s Murietta township. But a virtual wall of people who never participated in protests before this latest Obama White House scheme, physically blocked the roadways leading into their town forcing the bus drivers to make unscheduled u-turns brought their passengers to a holding facility near the Mexican border not far from San Diego, Calif.

According to Murrieta’s elected officials, they and the mayor were told a few days ago that the illegal aliens would bused into the town. What troubled the officials and in turn the town’s residents was the news that the illegal aliens will be released into their communities under with very little supervision while they await the results of President Barack Obama’s deportation executive order.

“The citizens of Murrieta believed that the unexamined illegal aliens would be left in the town and magically reappear with green cards thanks to state and federal politicians seeking a ‘lock’ on the Latino vote,” said political strategist Michael Barker.

On Monday, the day before the mini-uprising, Murrieta’s Mayor Alan Long released a statement in which he told the Obama administration that his constituents overwhelmingly objected the illegal aliens moving into the town, but he said he understood that city officials such as police officers, could not legally do anything to block Obama’s immigration plan.

“They’re not deporting them. They’re transporting them here to be processed and to be released into the communities. A lot of people don’t know where to go. They have nowhere to go,” saidBorder Patrol Agents Union official Ron Zermeno.

Meanwhile, a government-contracted security force reportedly threatened doctors and nurses with arrest if they discussed the threat of contagious diseases at a temporary camp created to house illegal alien children in San Antonio, Texas, sources say.

IRS scandal: Lawmakers fiercely demand Holder appoint special prosecutor

by Jim Kouri on Wednesday, July 2nd, 2014

This is article 300 of 300 in the topic Taxation/IRS

After many months of stonewalled investigations, “missing” subpoenaed emails, partisan bickering and uncooperative witnesses, House of Representatives chairmen from two congressional committees officially demanded on Monday that Attorney General Eric Holder appoint a special prosecutor to investigate the Internal Revenue Service‘s (IRS) targeting of conservative organizations and the subsequent cover-up perpetrated by IRS staff members.

The two chairmen, House Judiciary Committee Chairman Bob Goodlatte, R-Va., and House Ways and Means Committee Chairman Dave Camp, R-Mich., sent a biting letter to Attorney General Eric Holder on Monday demanding that he appoint a Special Counsel to investigate the Internal Revenue Service’s (IRS) and its rapid descent into a lawless nest of bullies and deceivers.

So far, Holder and his boss President Barack Obama have refused to appoint a Special Counsel, although they did appoint one to probe allegations of discrimination against lesbian, gay, bi-sexual and transexual federal workers, according to political strategist Mike Barker.

According to the two GOP congressmen, more than one year has passed since Americans learned from alternative media sources, and not from the Obama/Democratic Party sycophants within the major news outlets, about the IRS’s targeting of conservative groups.

What angers many Americans today is the fact that no one has been Goodlatte and Camp point to several recent developments such as the revelation that a number of emails belonging to Lois Lerner, the former IRS Director of Exempt Organizations, are “missing” and the discovery of an e-mail suggesting the IRS probe Senator Charles Grassley R-Iowa.

“It is clear that appointing an outside Special Counsel to investigate this matter would be in the public interest. The American people are very concerned that their government has targeted individual American citizens for harassment solely on the basis of their political beliefs. They deserve to know who ordered the targeting, when the targeting was ordered, and why,” wrote the two veteran lawmakers in their Holder letter.

Federal law stipulates that the U.S. Attorney General is required to appoint a Special Counsel, a/k/a special prosecutor, when he “determines that the criminal investigation of a person or matter is warranted.”

The letter by Camp and Goodlatte also reminded Holder that:

“[T]he Attorney General is required to appoint a Special Counsel when the investigation or prosecution of that person or matter by a United States Attorney’s Office or litigating Division of the Department of Justice would present a conflict of interest for the Department or other extraordinary circumstances, and when under the circumstances it would be in the public interest to appoint an outside Special Counsel to assume responsibility for the matter.”

On May 7, 2014, the House passed a resolution — H.Res. 565 — calling on Holder to finally appoint a Special Counsel to thoroughly investigate the serious allegations that arguably the nation’s most powerfuland far-reaching federal agency, Internal Revenue Service, intentionally targeted of conservative groups in an attempt to hamper those groups during the Obama reelection campaign.

“While Sen. Harry Reid, D-Nev., made outrageous and deceitful accusations about Obama’s opponent Mitt Romney not paying taxes for 10 years, the IRS was involved in a covert conspiracy to silence organizations that opposed the Obama presidency. That’s what I can Chicago and Las Vegas politics,” said former organized-crime control detective Donald Malfi.

And Malfi believes the corruption continues with a Chicago-style cover up.

Latino group and Obama ally exposed by America’s toughest sheriff

by Jim Kouri on Monday, June 30th, 2014

This is article 440 of 445 in the topic Immigration

It’s no secret to many Americans that President Barack Obama and his administration, especially Attorney General Eric Holder and the Justice Department hierarchy, have it in for the man known to many as America’s toughest sheriff, according to supporters for the reelection of Maricopa County, Ariz., Sheriff Joe Arpaio in an email release on Sunday. The latest attacks on Arpaio stem from his exposing a Democratic Party favored activist group known as the Puente Movement.

Puente’s legal team on June 18, 2014 filed a federal lawsuit against “Arpaio… and the Maricopa County Sheriff’s Office challenging… laws that turn immigrants into felons simply for working to provide for their families,” according to thegroup’s website.

“We are requesting an immediate injunction and permanent halt to the workplace raids and to expunge the records of raid victims who continue to face discrimination and barriers from exaggerated felony charges,” Puente officials claim.

“They have spent more time and resources coming after me and my office to keep us from enforcing illegal immigration laws than they do working to stop illegal immigrants from crossing our borders,” according to the 82-year-old Arpaio, who displays the energy of a man half his age,.

“Why? Because I’m the only law enforcement official in this state that has actively enforced our illegal immigration laws,”he said in the campaign email.

Arpaio has frequently pointed out that the Obama administration placed a federal “monitor” in the Maricopa County Sheriff’s Office to make there’s no “racially profiling” going on within the department’s jurisdiction. Arpaio calls this waste of taxpayer money absurd and says he’s in the midst of appealing the ruling and will continue to appeal all the way up to the U.S. Supreme Court.

In the past few days, Eric Holder’s non-governmental agency allies such as the ultra-liberal American Civil Liberties Union and the aforementioned open-borders, pro-amnesty group called “Puente” filed a federal lawsuit to prevent Arpaio’s deputies from conducting workplace operations to arrest “employees” that are engaged in identity theft by using other people’s social security numbers.

“Being a victim of identity theft is no trivial matter. It can ruin your credit, your ability to purchase a car or a home and make your life miserable because someone broke the law and used your identification. I can’t help it if the vast majority of these identity theft suspects are illegal immigrants,” said Arpaio.

Arpaio claims that Puente is a radical group that demands the deportations of illegal aliens be stopped. Puents also wants permanent citizenship for those who have broken U.S. immigration laws to enter the United States. Even more absurd is the group’s demand that the federal government disband both the U.S. customs and border patrol departments.

“They have consistently called for my arrest, protest outside my office or wherever I appear publicly and have actively worked to remove me from office. They’re counting on me to surrender and quit,” said Arpaio..

‘I won’t surrender. And I won’t quit. I don’t care if it’s the Justice Department, liberal attorneys or these extreme open-border groups that want to see me gone.

Thousands of Christians flee ISIS bloodbath in Iraq

by Jim Kouri on Monday, June 30th, 2014

This is article 1196 of 1200 in the topic International

An estimated 10,000 Christian men, women and children from communities in northern Iraq are abandoning their homes and most of their possessions as a result of the violence and killing being perpetrated by the terrorist group Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS), according to Friday’s report by theUnited Nations.

The U.N. High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) reports that a large number of Christian refugees fled to Iraq’s region controlled by the Kurds. It’s estimated that 300,000 Iraqis from Mosul and the nearby towns and villages have sought refuge with the Kurds.

“They fled by bus, car and taxi into Iraq’s northern Kurdistan region [beginning on] Wednesday night,” UNHCR spokesperson Melissa Fleming told reporters in Geneva, Switzerland. “Many are women and children staying with families, relatives and in schools and community centres, mostly in Erbil. They tell us they fled in a big rush, and didn’t bring many belongings with them so that is a sign of how afraid they are.”

So far this year, an estimated 1.2 million Iraqis have been displaced by fighting, including Christians and Shi’ite Muslims from Anbar and Ninewa governorates, according to UNHCR.

In recent weeks Iraq has seen violent armed groups sweep through a number of provinces sending massive numbers of desperate people fleeing for safety.

“The most vulnerable and poorest families have already experienced their share of tragedy over the last few years,” said WFP Executive Director Ertharin Cousin in a press release regarding her time in Iraq

She reported that she has met families who had escaped the bloody violence perpetrated in Mosul by ISIS. She also met with members of the de facto government of Kurdistan.

“Many [Iraqi Christians] are displaced in very harsh conditions. Lack of services, support and insecurity is forcing them to move around – in too many cases making these families difficult to reach,” Cousin stated.
