The Trump administration has made it a priority to go after the MS-13 gang which is suspected of many violent crimes in the U.S. including murder.

According to a whistleblower in communication with the Senate Homeland Security Committee, the Obama administration knew that members of MS-13 were entering the country illegally. (emphasis mine)

The Washington Times reports:

Obama admin knew gang members were part of illegal immigrant surge: Whistleblower

The Obama administration knowingly let in at least 16 admitted MS-13 gang members who arrived at the U.S. as illegal immigrant teenagers in 2014, a top senator said Wednesday, citing internal documents that showed the teens were shipped to juvenile homes throughout the country.

Sen. Ron Johnson, chairman of the Senate Homeland Security Committee, said a whistleblower turned over Customs and Border Protection documents from 2014 detailing the 16 persons who were caught crossing the border.

“CBP apprehended them, knew they were MS-13 gang members, and they processed and disbursed them into our communities,” Mr. Johnson, Wisconsin Republican, said.

The gang members were part of the surge of UAC, or “unaccompanied alien children,” as the government labels them, who overwhelmed the Obama administration in 2014, leaving Homeland Security struggling to staunch the flow from Central America.

At least we have the Trump administration now.

They’re dealing with the problem.

 

Hell unleashed on all non-Leftists

It appears as though verbal abuse, and/or violence is always just around the corner for many, no matter who they may be. Conservative speakers, writers, Trump supporters, Democrats who do not toe the party line, and now GOP politicians face death threats and bodily harm should they be in the wrong place at the wrong time.
And seditious Ole’ George’s servile MSM appears to be encouraging this Stalinist trend.
Can the American Republic be saved?

Thanks, liberal media: Republicans now face death threats from violent leftists
By Joe Newby
May 22, 2017 On Sunday, Breitbart.com’s Adam Shaw reported that Republican members of Congress going home to speak with constituents are now facing violence and death threats from radical leftists, prompting some to increase security at town hall events as a consequence of what Shaw called a “culture of violence being fostered by left-wing activists and their allies in the liberal media.”

Shaw provided some examples:

A man was arrested last week for threatening Rep. Martha McSally (R-AZ) in voicemail messages, telling her that her days “were numbered” because of her support for the president. The Arizona Republic reported that her district is one of the most evenly divided in the nation, but the threats are especially disturbing as she represents the district represented by former Democratic Rep. Gabby Giffords, who was shot in the head in 2011.

McSally faced one of the more extreme crowds at a town hall in February where she was heckled as activists carried signs saying, “Stop Trump’s crusade of hate” and “No! This fascist regime must be stopped before it starts.”

Some threats, allegedly from Steven Martan who was arrested by the FBI, say: “Martha our sights are set on you, right between your (expletive) eyes” and “Can’t wait to (expletive) pull the trigger (expletive),” according to the Republic.

Earlier this month, he noted, a crazed constituent tried to run Rep. David Kustoff, R-TN., off the road over his support of the Republican health care bill after an event. After she was arrested, liberal hatemongers hailed her as a folk hero.

Shaw says these are not isolated incidents:

While tempting to dismiss as one-off incidents, the threats and attacks come amid a backdrop of a culture of violence among the left. Riots, once a rare occurrence in America, now seem commonplace from leftist thugs in the era of Trump. Hundreds of people were arrested for rioting on Trump’s Inauguration Day alone, and college campuses have seen threats and violence should they dare to invite a conservative speaker onto campus.

He also observed that this is being driven by the so-called “mainstream media,” known here as the Democrat-media complex. Worse yet, a piece at the liberal Huffington Post actually encourages this behavior:

This has even been promoted to an extent by some liberal media outlets. In addition to the general hysteria and misinformation being pushed by some outlets (such as the false claim spread by a number of outlets that the health care reform bill would “make sexual assault a pre-existing condition”), there have been outright calls for harassment.

What will it take to stop the PC insanity that shields the truth regarding the Jihad against the West! These are not just attacks by lone wolves, disgruntled Muslims, or insane people. While such may engage in acts of violence, the underlying driver is JIHAD, coordinated and implemented by those who seek a Caliphate and the death of all non-believers. They must be rooted out and given no quarter in the legal system. They are murderers and must be dealt with as such.
Murder is murder no matter what the motivation. Will day care centers, pre-schools, or public schools be next?

The post below addresses Manchester in detail:

Manchester: This Time They Came for Our Children
By Roger L Simon May 22, 2017

It’s not just “Manchester England, England.” If you think what happened in Blighty can’t happen here — 19 killed, 59 injured — you’ll have to excuse me if I say “You’re out of your bloomin’ mind.” Did you already forget 9/11/2001? Or the Boston Marathon? Or San Bernardino? Or the Orlando gay bar attack less than a year ago that killed 49?

Oh, yeah. Seems so long ago, doesn’t it, even that last one? The “new normal.” We put these things out of our minds the week after to deal with the next trivial Washington scandal or go about our petty lives. Our culture lives in a self-destructive willful blindness, refusing to see the obvious even though it happens again and again across the globe. Radical Islam, Islamism, or whatever you want to call it has been at war with us since the Twin Towers came down and even well before. And they have no intention whatsoever of stopping.

Nevertheless we respond in the most perfunctory manner, nattering on about how Islam is a”religion of peace,” criticizing ourselves and others for “Islamophbia,” or dismissing it all as a police matter.

But this time it was teenage girls — our children — (emphasis mine) in that Manchester audience, murdered by a suicide bomber. If he had been more successful gaining entry, he might have killed several hundreds of them instead of, at this writing, only 19.

Have we learned anything? Is this finally going to be enough? Will we at last wake up? You tell me that the next time you drop your young daughter off at a rock concert you’re going to feel comfortable. Democrat, Republican, liberal, conservative, libertarian, or ladeedah, you’re going to have heart palpitations, I promise you.

Politicians blather on about how these terrorists are “cowards.” No, they’re not. Nothing cowardly about killing yourself for your vision of god, insane as it might be. What they are is maniacally evil, the same kind of evil that marched innocents into gas chambers in the 1940s. If you don’t confront it, it goes on and on, just as happened then. (emphasis mine)

Horrifying Video from Ariana Grande Concert During Terror Attack

So what do we do about it?

Begin with this:

Ban the word “Islamophobia” from the English language. It’s the biggest lie of our time, invented to distract from the obvious truth: Islam has a monumental problem with the modern world that affects all of us. Egypt’s al-Sisi knows it. Saudi King Salman seems now to know it. Only the “useful idiots” in the Western left deny this blatant reality. ISIS, al-Qaeda, and their ilk are the clear perpetrators, but the so-called liberals and progressives — in their endless morally narcissistic virtue signaling — are their enablers, actually their unindicted co-conspirators. It’s time we should indict them.

They keep repeating we shouldn’t tar all Muslims with this unconscionable murderous violence. Well, we shouldn’t. But if even ten percent of Muslims are accepting of violent jihadism, that’s ten percent of a billion and a half people, roughly four times the population of California and twice as big as all of France. Want to dismiss that as mere Islamophobia? You’re only contributing to its growth. And to the deaths of your children. (emphasis mine) Time to end this PC masquerade, which is a license to kill in disguise. Not all religions are the same, at least in their present forms. Buddhists aren’t blowing up teenagers in Manchester.

Also, time to get behind President Trump’s new initiative to enlist the Islamic world in their own reform. It’s high time an American president did that. Bush didn’t have the courage and Obama refused to believe there was a problem. He thought we were the problem — incredible, actually delusional, as that is in retrospect.(emphasis mine)

Politicians and the media particularly must face reality. We may not like it but we are at war. You should behave accordingly. This is Topic A — and there is no Topic B until further notice… that is unless you want Manchester actually to be the “new normal.” It pretty much is already. How horrible is that for all of us, how horrible for our children. Why don’t we all get together and put an end to it? It’s even more important than impeaching Trump.

 Ann Corcoran: America’s watch dog on refugee resettlement

Includes many informative links
posted by Ann Corcoran on May 16, 2017Editor:  A reader asked me over the weekend for the statistics on refugees committing crimes. I told him that as far as I know there is no place where crime statistics compiled those cases by immigration status.
For new readers, because there is no actual data that I know of (unless buried in the bowels of some federal agency)***, back in December I compiled this list of top refugee crime cases I had written about over the years. It does not include petty crimes and theft, spousal abuse, welfare fraud, etc.—just the high profile cases involving terrorism, murder and rape.

Here is my earlier post:
I’ve been procrastinating about writing this post, because it required work!
I had to go back through my over 2,000 posts on refugee crimes, here, and pull out Islamic terror cases involving refugees. I chose ten, not for any other reason than these ten below are at the top of my mind. And, I think ten is enough to counter the disinformation campaign going on.
For good measure, I have also added (below) a few spectacular crimes involving Muslim refugees.
But, I have to do it (to write this) because clearly the refugee industry has sent out talking points that I am seeing parroted many times each day which pretty much go like this: no refugee has committed an act of terror in the US.  LOL! And, maybe that is because many were arrested and convicted BEFORE they could do anything!
And, let me ask you, when evaluating the fact that you (as a taxpayer) paid for a refugee’s opportunity to come to America and in some cases below even paid to raise the refugee to adulthood, does it matter for your anger level that he/she planned to kill Americans or planned to kill some innocents somewhere else in the world?  So when the refugee advocates make a distinction about the location of the wannabe jihadist’s target, it’s a difference without a distinction to me!
Here are ten that come to mind:

~The Somali (Mohamed Osman Mohamud) arrested on charges he planned to blow up a Christmas tree lighting ceremony in Oregon was a refugee.  See here in 2010. He was arrested as he planned to detonate a bomb.mohanad-hammadi

~ Two Iraqi refugees were convicted on charges that they helped Al Qaeda in Iraq and may have killed American servicemen there.  They lied on their refugee applications. Best coverage of 2011 case here by ABC News.  The entire Iraqi flow to America had to be re-screened that year!
~In 2012 Abdullatif Ali Aldosary (an Iraqi refugee) set off a bomb at a Social Security Office in Arizona. Sentenced here.
~As successful asylum seekers, the Boston Bombers were refugees who had benefited from America’s generosity. One of many stories here about the 2012 deadly Boston Marathon attack by the Tsarnaev brothers (Chechens).
~In 2013 Fazliddin Kurbanov was arrested in Idaho and later convicted on terrorism charges. Kurbanov is an Uzbek refugee. See here.
~In early 2016 an Iraqi refugee (Omar Faraj Saeed Al Hardan) living in Texas was accused of planning to bomb a local popular mall, see story at Newsweek.
~In September 2016, a Somali refugee went on a stabbing spree at a mall in St. Cloud, Minnesota. Learn more here about Dahir Adan.  Knife attacks are signature terror acts for devout Muslims.
~Also in September, the Chelsea bomber, Ahmad Rahimi, was arrested and we learned his family came to the US from Afghanistan and were given asylum.  We need to be paying more attention to these asylum seekers since they enter the country completely unscreened and their numbers are on the rise. Story at CNN.  Once granted asylum they are given all the same rights and privileges as the refugees we fly in.
~And, we can’t forget the most recent successful attack by Somali refugee slasher, Abdul Razak Ali Artan, at Ohio State, see here.
~For number ten, I’m lumping the dozens of wannabe Somali refugee jihadists (mostly from Minnesota) who have been identified and/or convicted of wanting to leave the country to fight for al-Shabaab or ISIS. See here Several like those in that recent case, were convicted.

Now, here are some horrible crimes I’ve reported over the years!

Esar Met, listens to proceedings in Judge Judith Atherton's court room, at the Matheson Courthouse in Salt Lake City, Thursday, January 9, 2014. Esar Met is accused of killing 7-year-old Hser Ner Moo, who disappeared on March 31, 2008.

And remember not only did you pay for the refugee’s trip to America and his welfare when he got here, but now you will pay for (in many cases) their lives in prison.
~It is hard to rank murder cases, but for me the top of the list is a horrible rape and murder of a Christian refugee child in Salt Lake City, Utah in 2008.  The Burmese Muslim murderer (Esar Met) is now incarcerated for life. The child was the youngest child and only daughter of a Burmese Christian family.
~In 2013 a Somali refugee in North Dakota was sentenced to life in prison for the 2011 murder of a native American family he had become involved with.
~In this case in 2014, an Iraqi refugee murdered his wife (she was going to leave him in 2012) and he penned a fake note trying to pin the murder on Islamophobes in the neighborhood. He was found guilty here and he wasn’t too happy about it! Even CAIR had gotten involved when he tried to pin the murder on Islamophobic Americans.
~And this is an awful case from Colorado where a gang of Iraqi refugees brutally raped a local Colorado Springs woman—“the worst case in Colorado history.” Diana West did a great investigative report on the story, here, at Townhall.
~And, if you have never seen the 2009 Roanoke, VA kidnapping story, don’t miss it here!  No one ever accused these refugees of being too bright! By the way, these guys only got about 5 years so they are probably out roaming Anytown, USA right now. I doubt they were deported.
I’m sure I have more, but I want to move on to other news today.
Here is an idea!
If your town is having a public meeting on whether to ‘welcome’ refugees, you know the pro-refugee team will be there with their talking points. Maybe print this post out and take it along to counter them.  Or, better still, dig into some of these cases and be prepared with maybe even a poster with photos and talking points of your own!
And, when they tell you that refugees bring economic benefits to communities, ask if they are factoring in the costs of crime/trials/incarceration!
***Someone is keeping data on at least the Muslim refugees with links to terrorists because lost in all of the Comey news is the startling information he revealed in testimony before Congress just days before Trump fired him.

Excerpt:“My investigation shows someone within the D.C. government, Democratic National Committee or Clinton team is blocking the murder investigation from going forward,” Wheeler told Fox News. “That is unfortunate. Seth Rich’s murder is unsolved as a result of that.”….
The question remains who is impeding this investigation

Seth Rich, slain DNC staffer, had contact with WikiLeaks, say multiple sources
By Malia Zimmerman
Published May 16, 2017
The Democratic National Committee staffer who was gunned down on July 10 on a Washington, D.C., street just steps from his home had leaked thousands of internal emails to WikiLeaks, law enforcement sources told Fox News.
A federal investigator who reviewed an FBI forensic report — generated within 96 hours after DNC staffer Seth Rich’s murder — detailing the contents Rich’s computer said he made contact with WikiLeaks through Gavin MacFadyen, a now-deceased American investigative reporter, documentary filmmaker, and director of WikiLeaks who was living in London at the time….
“I have seen and read the emails between Seth Rich and WikiLeaks,” the federal investigator told Fox News, confirming the MacFadyen connection. He said the emails are in possession of the FBI, while the stalled case is in the hands of the Washington Police Department.

The revelation is consistent with the findings of Rod Wheeler, a former DC homicide detective and Fox News contributor and whose private investigation firm was hired by Rich’s family to probe the case. Rich was shot from behind in the wee hours, but was not robbed.
“My investigation up to this point shows there was some degree of email exchange between Seth Rich and WikiLeaks,” Wheeler said. “I do believe that the answers to who murdered Seth Rich sits on his computer on a shelf at the DC police or FBI headquarters.”….


The FBI’s national office declined to comment, but sources said the bureau provided cyber expertise to examine Rich’s computer.
Wheeler believes powerful forces are preventing the case from a thorough investigation.
“My investigation shows someone within the D.C. government, Democratic National Committee or Clinton team is blocking the murder investigation from going forward,” Wheeler told Fox News. “That is unfortunate. Seth Rich’s murder is unsolved as a result of that.”….
Police also have refused to release security footage from a market on the corner of the crosswalk where Rich was killed. The footage, sources told Fox News, shows two people following Rich across the tiny crosswalk just moments before he was attacked. The camera captured grainy footage of the assailants’ legs and Rich as he fell backward into the street after being shot. much more here

FBI offered deal to Russian hacker to claim he hacked Hillary’s e-mails on behalf of Trump
published May 13, 2017
Well…well…well…The leaks about Comey are starting to come already. One of them claims that the Comey FBI offered a Russian hacker named Yevgeny Nikulin a deal. Yevgeny Nikulin is wanted by the FBI for allegedly hacking into US companies and other cyber attacks. Comey’s FBI agents promised Mr. Nikulin money, American citizenship and a free apartment for taking the fall over hacking of the Clinton campaign. If this report had been false, you would think the FBI would come out with full denial that this deal was ever made. Instead, the FBI declined to comment.FBI agents promised Mr. Nikulin money, American citizenship and a free apartment for taking the fall over hacking Mrs. Clinton’s campaign, he alleged in a letter published Thursday by Nastoyashchoe Vremya, a Russian-language website.“[They told me:] you will have to confess to breaking into Clinton’s inbox for [President Trump] on behalf of [Russian President Vladimir Putin],” Mr. Nikulin wrote, as translated by The Moscow Times.“He was offered to falsely testify that he was cooperating in the attack on the Democratic Party,” defense attorney Martin Sadilek said Thursday, the Associated Press reported.The FBI declined to comment.Mr. Nikulin was apprehended in Prague last October pursuant to an internal arrest warrant and was subsequently charged by a federal grand jury in California with hacking LinkedIn, Dropbox and Formspring, three San Francisco-based internet companies. He’s wanted in both the U.S. and Russia, however, and has remained for months in Czech custody as authorities review requests from both countries.
FBI agents interviewed Mr. Nikulin twice since his arrest, he wrote, and each time asked him to confess to hacking American political targets. Mr. Nikulin said he refused their initial request last November, then received a second offer three months later.
FBI agents asked Mr. Nikulin to admit hacking Mrs. Clinton’s presidential campaign, Democratic Party computers and American polling stations “on Putin’s orders,” he wrote. In exchange, he alleges, the FBI said he’d be extradited to the U.S. but ultimately given money, citizenship and a free apartment. Fire Andrea Mitchell

Ajit Pai

The new normal: What the Left does not get legally or by the electoral process, it will attempt to get via well funded thuggery with an overlay of hysteria and more than a touch of insanity.
The post below is just one more example of the uncivilized behavior they are engaging in to protest Ajit Pai’s stance on Net “Neutrality”.

Alt-Left Targets Ajit Pai
Members of violent protest groups organize events in FCC chairman’s neighborhood

BY: Elizabeth Harrington Members of the alt-left with a history of participating in violent protests are targeting the neighborhood of the Federal Communications Commission chairman Ajit Pai.
The organizers, connected to DisruptJ20 and Code Pink, said they are “taking the fight to Pai’s front door,” leaving leaflets on the doors in Pai’s neighborhood last weekend to protest changes to the Obama administration net neutrality policy.


On Sunday, the activists will again target Pai’s neighborhood, this time with a “vigil to save the Internet.”
“Join us this Sunday for a #SaveTheInternet #NetNeutrality vigil outside of FCC Chairman Ajit Pai’s house,” a Facebook event organized by “Protect Our Internet” reads.
“THIS IS A COMPLETELY LEGAL ACTION. PROTECTED BY THE FIRST AMENDMENT,” the invitation notes.


The organizers, who are connected to PopularResistance.org, which features several members of the antifascist (antifa) campaign, said the vigil would be a family friendly event and “perfect” to celebrate Mother’s Day outside of Pai’s door.


“We will stand on the sidewalk outside of his house,” the invitation read. “Bring signs, slogans—bring your mom, your kids, your friends and family!”
“This is a perfect Sunday Mother’s Day action to expose #PaiLies and continue the fight for an open, accessible internet,” it said.


Members of the alt-left were behind the first leaflet campaign at Pai’s doorstep. “Have you seen this man?” the leaflets read, with a photo of Pai.
The campaign is an attempt to intimidate and embarrass Pai for his plans to reverse the Obama administration’s net neutrality rules, which gave the government more regulatory power over internet service providers.
(emphasis mine)
Kevin Zeese is a PopularResistance.org contributor, who several years ago organized a blockade of former FCC chairman Tom Wheeler’s house to demand net neutrality rules, which the Obama administration later adopted.


PopularResistance.org is a network of leftist activists in the D.C. area who have been involved in violent protests with the antifa, DisruptJ20, and Code Pink.
The invite list on social media for both events in Pai’s neighborhood feature several members of these protest groups, including Lacy MacAuley, the spokesperson for DisruptJ20, who was invited to the invent.
DisruptJ20 violently disrupted President Donald Trump’s inauguration, with the “explicit goal” of preventing Trump supporters from peacefully attending the day’s festivities.
Members of the “well-organized” group were “armed with hammers and crowbars” at the inauguration protest. Storefront windows were smashed and a limousine, which was owned by a Muslim immigrant, was set on fire. Over 271 protesters were arrested and 6 police officers were injured.
DisruptJ20 activists were also revealed on an undercover video released by Project Veritas to be planning to attack the “DeploraBall” inauguration party with butyric acid, which led to the arrest of one of the group’s activists for conspiracy to commit assault.


MacAuley said vandalizing a Bank of America and Starbucks on Inauguration Day would make a “strong stand against” capitalism.
“I think that all of Washington, D.C., feels that way, even if they wouldn’t express it in something that results in a limo getting burned,” she told the Washington Post, as spokesperson for DisruptJ20.


Another activist who was listed as attending the protest in Pai’s neighborhood is Dylan Eugene Petrohilos, using the pseudonym “Dylan Posi.” Petrohilos previously worked for the liberal groups Think Progress and Center for American Progress and was arrested for jumping on the back of a police car and kicking out the rear window while protesting the Republican National Convention in Minnesota in 2008.


Police found a can of spray paint and a white plastic bag authorities believed contained feces in his backpack. Petrohilos said it was a candy bar.
Another individual interested in attending the Pai protest is Sergei Kostin, a “professional activist,” according to the D.C. Metropolitan Police Department. Kostin is a former member of the Occupy movement and punched a traditional marriage advocate during a protest outside the Supreme Court in 2013.


Kostin is also an organizer for Code Pink and DisruptJ20 and planned the LGBT dance party outside of Vice President Mike Pence’s home in January.
Eleanor Goldfield, another organizer for DisruptJ20, was also listed as going to the event, and Tighe Barry, who was one of the Code Pink activists arrested for disrupting the confirmation hearings of Attorney General Jeff Sessions, was invited.


Also invited was Gael Murphy, who leads Code Pink in D.C. In 2004, Murphy disrupted a Senate hearing with Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld and later was among a group of more than 1,700 protesters arrested at the Republican National Convention in New York City.
The list also included Alli McCracken, who also helped organize DisruptJ20 and is Code Pink’s national director.

If you listen to the mainstream media, you would think the Trump administration is totally messed up, disorganized, incompetent.

Yet, every day another record is broken, and a win for We the People. THAT is the reality, not the fake news the mainstream is trying to shove down the throats of Mom and Pop America.

Case in point: ICE conducted its biggest raid in US history a few days ago, netting nearly 1,400 arrests, over 1,000 of those being gang members.

Turning up the heat on killer gangs tied to illegals, immigration officials on Thursday announced their biggest raid yet, the arrest of 1,378, including several on murder, drug and sex trafficking charges, reports the Washington Examiner.

U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement’s Homeland Security Investigations said it just concluded a six week anti-gang operation with the arrests and called it “the largest gang surge conducted by HSI to date.”

 In pure numbers, ICE said, “Of the 1,378 total arrested, 1,098 were arrested on federal and/or state criminal charges, including 21 individuals arrested on murder related charges and seven for rape and sexual assault charges. The remaining 280 were arrested on administrative immigration violations. Of the total arrested, 933 were U.S. citizens and 445 were foreign nationals from 21 countries in South and Central America, Asia, Africa, Europe and the Caribbean.”

The Trump administration has made criminal gangs and illegals with criminal records a priority. The administration has put a special focus on MS-13, the gang from Latin America. Of the 1,378 arrested, 1,095 were gang members.

“Gangs threaten the safety of our communities, not just in major metropolitan areas but in our suburbs and rural areas, too,” said ICE Acting Director Thomas Homan. “Gang-related violence and criminal activity present an ongoing challenge for law enforcement everywhere. Our efforts to dismantle gangs are much more effective in areas where partnership with local law enforcement is strongest,” he added.

ICE said that three of those arrested were illegals who entered the U.S. as minors and had their deportation deferred by President Obama who sought to protect so-called “Dreamers.”

Other key details from ICE:

— 10 individuals arrested during this operation crossed the border as unaccompanied minors.

— Nine of the 10 were confirmed as gang members, eight of whom were MS-13 gang members.

— During this operation, HSI and its partner law enforcement agencies seized 238 firearms; various narcotics including 790.15 ounces of cocaine, 546.96 ounces of methamphetamine, 113.42 ounces of heroin, 1.59 ounces of fentanyl, and 8,019.46 ounces of marijuana; and $491,763 in U.S currency.

Powdered Wig Society

 

Jetpac founder Nadeem Mazen has ties to the Council on American-Islamic Relations. His goal is to get more Muslims elected to city, state and federal offices across the U.S.

The following report is detailed and worth reading. One may find the amount of political/cultural penetration into America portentous, to say the least. It is not alarmist to say that should this Islamist soft jihad continue here, America will be Europe within 50 years, possibly sooner.

by Leo Hohmann
A new organization called Jetpac Inc. is mobilizing to get more Muslims elected to public office in U.S. cities and states, but an investigation into the founder’s background reveals ties to the extremist Muslim Brotherhood, which has been hard at work trying to influence American politics since the 1990s.


The first Muslim elected to a national office was Rep. Keith Ellison, who was elected in 2006 to represent a heavily Democratic district in Minnesota. He was sworn into office with his hand on the Quran, and that singular act opened a world of possibilities for other politically minded Muslims.


But the victories since then have been few and far between, says Nadeem Mazen, and that’s why he has started Jetpac – or the Justice, Education, and Technology Policy Advocacy Center. Its sole purpose is to organize and train Muslims for elected offices at the local, state and national levels.
Mazen, Jetpac’s founder and president, became Massachusetts’ first Muslim elected to public office when he won a seat on the Boston City Council in 2013.


There have been many breakthroughs since Ellison’s election in 2006, not the least of which was Ellison’s own promotion to the No. 2 officer in charge of the Democratic National Committee behind chairman Tom Perez.
Rep. Andre Carson, D-Ind., was elected to Congress in 2008, the city of Hamtramck in 2016 became the first city to be governed by a Muslim-majority city council, and Minneapolis voters elected Ilhan Omar as the nation’s first female Muslim state legislator in November.


Ilhan, 34, came to America as a “refugee” from Somalia and was resettled in the growing enclave of Somalis in the Cedar Riverside area of Minneapolis. Not surprisingly, that Somali enclave has now amassed enough numbers to elect a Somali representative to the State House.
Civilization jihad proceeding according to plan?


This is exactly how the Muslim Brotherhood envisioned the takeover of America, through non-violent civilizational jihad, experts on the shadowy network tell WND.


Dr. Abdul El-Sayed, the current health commissioner for the city of Detroit, announced in February he was running for governor of Michigan as a Democrat.


Like Ilhan, Ellison and Carson, Sayed has the full backing of the Council on American-Islamic Relations, or CAIR, a spinoff of the Muslim Brotherhood.
Numerous other major cities such as Minneapolis and Boston have elected Muslims to their city councils, which in turn leads to key appointments of Muslims to the police and fire departments.

But that’s not nearly enough progress, says Mazen, the Jetpac founder.
“Muslims are unbelievably underrepresented in elected office,” Mazen told the Boston Globe. “Having Muslims in elected office, the way I am, can change the narrative from being on the defensive [in the media] … to the work that we actually do around issues such as affordable housing.”


There are about 3.3 million Muslims in America, according to an estimate by Pew Research, which account for about 1.5 percent of the U.S. population. CAIR and others estimate the population could be as high as 5 to 7 million

.
But the narrative provided by Mazen is mostly propaganda meant for the untrained non-Muslim ear, dutifully passed on as “news” by politically correct media outlets, says Clare Lopez, vice president of research and analysis for the Center for Security Policy and author of “Star Spangled Shariah: The Rise of America’s First Muslim Brotherhood Party.”

Lopez noted Mazen was a founding member of the CAIR chapter in Massachusetts after serving as the president of the Muslim Student Association at MIT.

CAIR and the MSA are both off-shoots of the extremist Muslim Brotherhood, which is banned as a terrorist organization in at least half a dozen countries, including Russia, Saudi Arabia, Egypt and the UAE.

While most Muslim politicians publicly support social justice, environmental justice, free and easy abortions, same-sex marriage and the full pallet of LGBTQ rights, that is merely a means to an end. The ultimate goal is Shariah law for Americans, Lopez said.

But who could ever get elected in America on a platform of Shariah law?
She says the Brotherhood will back candidates who wrap themselves in the liberal causes of the day and attach themselves to the Democratic Party, knowing that they have a ready-made political machine eager to push their candidates to the forefront of American politics.

“We know that the U.S. Muslim Brotherhood began planning at least a decade ago to seed the U.S. political system with young, up-and-coming, Shariah-adherent, Shariah-promoting stealth jihadist like Ilhan Omar in Minnesota – now it’s happening – they are shrewdly using our own system against us – via Star Spangled Shariah.”


Omar made headlines Thursday when she was one of only two lawmakers to vote against a bill in the Minnesota State House that would allow life insurance companies to deny death benefits to the families of dead terrorists.


Two years ago, on March 12, 2014, the Muslim Brotherhood launched its own political party, the U.S. Council of Muslim Organizations. But that hasn’t changed its longtime modus operandi of working with and through friendly non-Muslim organizations and parties.


With the Democratic Party already in the bag, the Brotherhood scored another hit this past week when the U.S. Green Party instructed its activists to cooperate with and build political networks with CAIR and other Muslim groups at the grassroots level. (emphasis mine)

The Council of Muslim Organizations is an umbrella organization whose membership reads like a Who’s Who of leaders in Brotherhood front groups – with the goal of getting more Muslim representation in Washington and in state capitols, according to a report by Investor’s Business Daily, IBD.

“We are aiming to bring more participation from the Muslim community, Nihad Awad, executive director of CAIR’s national office, told IBD.


IBD concluded the Council of Muslim Organizations “also aims to elect Islamists in Washington, with the ultimate objective of ‘institutionalizing policies’ favorable to Islamists — that is, Shariah law.”


But the effort precedes 2014 and actually found its genesis in 2010, said Lopez.


“What’s key to understand is how these groups are spinning off of the first generation,” she said.


In January 2010, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton gifted the Muslim Brotherhood with a key opportunity when she signed the Exercise of Discretionary Authority under Section 212(d)(3)(B)(i) of the Immigration and Nationality Act, according to a Center for Security Policy report.


That stroke of a pen by Clinton allowed Tariq Ramadan, the grandson of Muslim Brotherhood founder Hassan al Banna, to enter the United States for the first time since the Department of Homeland Security revoked his visa in July 2004.


Less than four months later, on May 5, 2010, Project Mobilize, which included board members with ties to multiple Muslim Brotherhood front organizations, was founded by M. Yasser Tabara in Summit, Illinois.
At its website, Project Mobilize’s mission included:

To Develop the political capital existing within the Muslim American community;
To Organize the Muslim American community around issues determined relevant; and
To Advocate on behalf of the Muslim American community to elected officials and persons with political clout so that they act upon the concerns and desires of their Muslim American constituents.

The U.S. Holy Land Foundation terror-financing trial in 2008 identified networks of Muslim groups that were moving to elevate the next generations to positions of leadership. They hit pay dirt during the Obama administration, which embedded many of these sleepers into federal agencies, where they remain to this day.

“In other words, the Islamic movement is expanding aggressively in the U.S. even while taking steps to disguise their true affiliation with the jihadist Muslim Brotherhood,” Lopez said.


A trip to Saudi Arabia:
Back in 2007, a Muslim prayer leader and professor at Georgetown University, Yahya Hendi, traveled to Saudi Arabia and spoke to fellow Muslim academics. He said Islam was already becoming part of the mainstream of American society in 2007 and predicted that by the end of 2015 approximately 30 cities would have Muslim mayors. He said there would be “three or four” Muslim members of Congress by 2015 (There were two).


The only potential roadblock to continued growth of Islam in America could be the presence of “Christian extremists,” Hendi told the Saudis, as reported by the Washington Times.


Perhaps it is because that prediction has failed to materialize that the Muslim Brotherhood has been doubling down since 2014 on its political organizing.


Ann Corcoran, author of the Refugee Resettlement Watch blog, notes that the key to getting Muslims into office rests with refugee placement into cities, which inevitably leads to enclaves that vote in blocs for Muslim candidates.


“I remember hearing about Hendi’s prediction in 2007 and it struck me as very odd. Imagine the outcry if an American Catholic bishop traveled to the Vatican and said we need to have 30 Catholic mayors in the U.S.?” she said. “Or what if a Jewish rabbi went to Israel and said we envision 30 Jewish mayors by 2025? The media would have a field day with that, calling it bigoted and divisive. But the Muslims say we need more Muslim mayors and the media cheers.


“If your goal is to improve government at the city, state or national level, what should it matter what the politician’s religion is?”

The only way to stop the Antifa fascists is to hold them accountable for their lawless actions. Arrest and prosecute them. Portland, Oregon police have gotten the message.

From Portland Police Bureau
On Monday May 1, 2017, 25 people were arrested after a permitted May Day rally and march devolved into a riot after dozens of suspects committed numerous criminal acts including disorderly conduct, riot, arson, criminal mischief (vandalism), theft, and assault.

Prior to the permitted march beginning, officers took possession of numerous sticks, poles, and homemade shields from participants arriving at Shemanski Park in Southwest Portland.

Early in the march, which was scheduled to travel through Downtown Portland and return to Shemanksi Park, rocks and projectiles were being launched at police officers and paramedics, including a full Pepsi can that struck a Portland Fire & Rescue paramedic assigned to assist the Portland Police Bureau’s Rapid Response Team (RRT).

Shortly after that, the situation devolved into a full-scale riot with random acts of vandalism to Downtown businesses, cars, and public and private property. Various fires were set in the street and in garbage cans, a police car was spray-painted and vandalized, and there were attempts to set at least one business on fire. Numerous projectiles were thrown at or launched at police and firefighters including rocks, bottles, ball bearings, fireworks, smoke bombs, and road flares.  continue here
