Truck barricades, checkpoints, 1000’s of cops ring in U.S. New Year, thanks to Muslim terror

Thanks to massive Muslim immigration since 9/11, Americans need a massive security apparatus to protect them from the so-called religion of peace this New Year’s Eve.


Source: Garbage trucks to block possible Times Square truck attacks

New York City’s iconic New Year’s Eve celebration will be surrounded by sanitation vehicles to stop truck-driving attackers like those in Germany and France.

The 65 garbage collection and sand trucks along Times Square’s perimeter are meant to stop would-be assailants from plowing trucks into the crowd of 1 million people.

New York Police Department Chief of Patrol Carlos Gomez said Thursday that 100 patrol cars also will be used as blocker vehicles.

Officials say they regularly adapt their security measures based on world events. They say there are no known, credible threats against the gathering.

A Dec. 19 attack in Berlin killed 12 people. A July 14 attack in Nice, France, killed 86.

New York police say they’ll deploy 7,000 officers, bomb-sniffing dogs and heavily armed counterterrorism units.

Source: Police, FBI, other agencies ramp up security for Rose Parade

Authorities, saying they have learned valuable lessons from the March terrorist attack in Brussels, are ramping up security for Pasadena’s 128th annual Rose Parade with barricades, security checkpoints and other measures they aren’t disclosing.

Pasadena Police Chief Phillip Sanchez told reporters Wednesday the measures include water-filled barriers at some streets. He adds that such barricades are designed to stop would-be terrorists from crashing cars into crowded areas.

Bomb-sniffing dogs will also be deployed at the parade and the 103rd annual Rose Bowl football game that follows it.

Police are working with the Secret Service, Homeland Security, FBI and numerous other agencies to ensure safety at the events, which are attended by hundreds of thousands each year.

Authorities are also asking attendees to call police if they see anything suspicious.


DHS Gave Somali Muslims Security Briefings, Tours in Secured Areas at Major U.S. Airports

Source: Judicial Watch: U.S. Customs, Homeland Security Records Reveal Somalis Given Security Briefings, ‘Community Engagement Tours’ in Secured Areas at Major U.S. Airports – Judicial Watch

Judicial Watch today released 31 pages of records from U.S. Customs and Border Protection revealing that the Department of Homeland Security has given Somalis “community engagement tours,” including security briefings, in secured areas at least three major U.S. airports – Los Angeles, Minneapolis, and Columbus, Ohio.

The records came in response to a May 2016 Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request, which sought records, documents and communications regarding a “Community Engagement Tour” in Minneapolis-St. Paul Airport on February 18, 2016.

The briefings provided to the Somali groups were so sensitive that in 14 instances the agency redacted portions of the records under Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) exemption (B)(7)(e), the law-enforcement “risk circumvention” exemption, which reads:

Exemption 7(E) of the Freedom of Information Act affords protection to all law enforcement information that would disclose techniques and procedures for law enforcement investigations or prosecutions, or would disclose guidelines for law enforcement investigations or prosecutions if such disclosure could reasonably be expected to risk circumvention of the law.

In another instance, Customs and Border Protection exempted under (B)(7)(e) a portion of a February 16, 2016, “Minute by Minute Agenda” provided during a tour/briefing of the Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport (MSP). The material that was withheld from Judicial Watch as too law-enforcement sensitive – but provided in full to the Somali group – included a section entitled: “TSA Overview — Processing [Redacted].”  The invitees were provided briefings of the Global Entry system, APC [Automated Passport Control] system, secondary screening procedures, baggage-screening procedures and given tours of the holding cells/interview rooms.

Notes from the February Minneapolis St. Paul Airport tour include: “Current CBP and TSA job vacancies were discussed. Attendees responded with requests for DHS outreach efforts during Somali community events to further advertise these positions to interested individuals.”

The newly released records also reveal:

  • In addition to the Minneapolis Airport tours/briefings given to Somalis during 2014 and 2015 – and first revealed by Judicial Watch in August 2016 – tours of U.S. airports and security briefings also have been provided to other groups at airports in Los Angeles and Columbus, Ohio: “Once we agree on the dates we will select the time based on prayer schedules. Another idea could be the roundtable to take place at the airport after the tour. We have done that before in LA and Columbus and it worked well both times”.
  • The timing of the Minneapolis Airport tour given to a group of Somalis in February 2016 was scheduled between 6-8pm because it would “accommodate prayer times well”
  • During the “annual” tour, federal authorities granted excursions of the facility’s “secure areas.” It is also noted that two parties in the previous year “did not pass vetting.”
  • The invitation extended to the Somalis for the Minneapolis Airport tour addressed them as “Dear Colleague,” and promised “walking people through CBP’s process, walking people through TSA’s process” and provide “a step-by-step tour of our operations, designed to offer a greater understanding of airport processes and procedures.”

Eight senior ranking Homeland Security and Customs officials were tasked with accompanying and briefing the Somalis on the February 18, 2016, Minneapolis Airport tour, including the Minneapolis Area Port Director, the Assistant Port Director, the Watch Commander, a Homeland Security Civil Rights and Civil Liberties Senior Policy Advisor (flown in from Washington), the TSA Federal Security Director and TSA Deputy Federal Security Director.

The documents show Customs officials reporting that one of the invited individuals had given “CBP Chicago a hard time” following the last tour and noted three of the invitees had had investigations against them, which had since been closed.  Another invitee had an active investigation pending.

“Logically, information that is too sensitive to provide to Judicial Watch and the public should not have been given to a ‘community engagement tour,’” said Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton.  “The U.S. government has been aware for years that Minnesota is a hotbed of Somali terrorist-cell activity. The behind-the-scenes tours and security briefings of the Minneapolis airport very well could have created a threat to public safety.”

In August 2016, the Judicial Watch blog, Corruption Chronicles, reported on the Muslim airport tour story: “The Obama administration gave Somali Muslims behind-the-scenes tours at a major U.S. airport after the group complained to Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson about feeling harassed and profiled, government records obtained by Judicial Watch reveal. The special security tours not offered to any other group occurred at the Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport after Department of Homeland Security roundtable meetings with local Somali leaders to obtain feedback for ‘modifications to practices that would allow for operations to be more culturally sensitive.’”

DHS Hires FBI-banned CAIR to Train French Officials

Source: IPT EXCLUSIVE: DHS Hires CAIR to Train French Officials ::

The Florida chapter of the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) facilitated a training session last week for a French police delegation, in conjunction with the State Department and the Department of Homeland Security (DHS)’s Community Engagement Office in Tampa, the Investigative Project on Terrorism has confirmed with DHS officials and other agencies.

This session stands in contrast with the FBI’s 2009 policy not to engage with CAIR outside of criminal investigations due to questions about the Hamas ties of its top executives. An FBI official wrote that “until we can resolve whether there continues to be a connection between CAIR or its executives and HAMAS, the FBI does not view CAIR as an appropriate liaison partner.” That FBI policy toward CAIR remains in effect, and was publicly reaffirmed in 2013.

CAIR-Florida issued a press release Dec. 8 giving details of the event, and posted numerous photos of the French delegation on its Facebook page. The training session was devoted to showing the French officials “how to effectively challenge violent extremist individuals of all backgrounds and prevent hate crimes, while protecting civil rights and challenging profiling and discrimination,” the release said.

Several French counter-terror officials received this training, including a representative of France’s Ministry of the Interior and many police chiefs.

DHS could have turned to any number of organizations and people to work with the French delegation. Choosing an Islamist group whose ties to a terrorist group rendered it persona non grata with the FBI is either a sign of dangerous incompetence or institutional arrogance.

AG Loretta Lynch visits terror-linked Virginia mosque amid spike in (faked) anti-Muslim hate crimes


Of course, Lynch didn’t mention the increase in faked anti-Muslim crimes committed by Muslims. Nor did she mention the 14 Americans killed and dozens wounded by Muslims in the 2015 San Bernardino Christmas party attack.

Source: Loretta Lynch visits Virginia mosque amid spike in anti-Muslim hate crimes – Washington Times

Attorney General Loretta E. Lynch focused attention on an uptick in hate crimes against Muslims as she visited a mosque in Northern Virginia on Monday, drawing parallels between discrimination prior generations have overcome and warning that attacks on one group endanger all members of society.

“There is a pernicious thread that connects the act of violence against a woman wearing a hijab to the assault on a transgender man to the tragic deaths of nine innocent African Americans during a Bible study at Mother Emanuel AME in Charleston, South Carolina,” Ms. Lynch said during her address at the All Dulles Area Muslim Society Center in Sterling. “There is a thread that links all of those, and when one of us is threatened, all of us are threatened.”

A total of 5,818 hate crimes were reported in 2015, a “sobering indication of how much work remains to be done,” Ms. Lynch said.

The number of assaults, attacks on mosques and other crimes that targeted Muslims grew by 67 percent to 257 crimes — the highest total since 2001, when more than 480 crimes targeted Muslims in the aftermath of the 9/11 terrorist attacks.

Speaking to an interfaith crowd at the All Dulles Area Muslim Society (ADAMS) Center, Lynch called for citizens to come to the defense of their neighbors.

More on the terror mosque from a piece that exposed DHS doing the same, via Mosque Tied to Muslim Brotherhood:

Federal agents raided the ADAMS Center during a 2002 terrorism investigation into organizations tied to the Muslim Brotherhood, according to court documents published by the Clarion Project.

“A government affidavit said the group is ‘suspected of providing support to terrorists, money laundering, and tax evasion through the use of a variety of for-profit companies and ostensible charitable entities under their control, most of which are located at [the ADAM Center’s offices at] 555 Grove Street, Herndon, V.A.,” according to the report.

Additionally, several accused terrorists have allegedly spent time at the ADAMS Center, including Farooque Ahmed, who was arrested for planning to bomb the Washington-area subway.

Patrick Poole, a terrorism analyst and national security reporter who has written about the ADAMS Center, called the DHS secretary’s scheduled appearance concerning.“The ADAMS Center has been a documented hub of extremism that even in the most generous interpretation has a poor record of dealing with terrorists in their midst,” Poole said. “It was no coincidence that the Attorney General of the United States was canceling outreach meetings due solely to the presence of Mohamed Magid.”

The fatwa mentioned in the invitation to the event was signed by at least one individual “who is currently in prison in Egypt convicted of terrorism charges,” Poole noted.

And we’ll leave you with a light-hearted citizen assessment that is actually more truthful than anything you’ll see on the evening news.

Obama flooding U.S. with Somali Muslims at highest rate ever! (updated)

Source: First two months of FY2017, Somali ‘refugees’ entering US at highest rate ever! « Refugee Resettlement Watch

In light of the many Somalis who have been arrested and convicted on terrorism charges (here is the most recent case) and in light of two highly publicized cases of Somali youths we cared for on our taxpayer dime attempting to kill Americans since September in St. Cloud, MN and in Columbus, OH, we are admitting the highest weekly average of Somalis to the US that we have ever done in the last 30 years!

Using the data available to the public at (Refugee Processing Center), we searched for the number of Somalis (virtually all Somalis are Muslims) admitted between October 1, 2016 and December 1, 2016 and this is what we found:

2,598 were admitted in the last two months. (More Somalis than Syrians, here).

And check out the top ten states which ‘welcomed’ them. (40 states got some number of Somalis, but large numbers will head to Minnesota and Ohio as soon as their initial resettlement funds run out.)

Top Ten states for Somali resettlement in the first two months of this fiscal year:

Minnesota (334)

New York (283)

Kentucky (169) It is new for KY to be anywhere near the top for resettlement, where are you Rand Paul?

Ohio (158)

Arizona (146)

Missouri (136)

Texas (133)

Washington (113)

Colorado (97)

Pennsylvania (89)

Note to the Donald Trump transition team: You can’t solve the problem if you only restrict entry to some Middle Eastern countries! Although we pick up most of the Somalis from camps in Africa, we are admitting Somalis who have “made their way” to far flung corners of the world, including to Europe!

Read the  Refugee Resettlement Watch blog and see how your city/state is being overrun with illegals and refugees.

More: Illegal and Trump can stop it all Day One

A quick search of the database shows that places like Bowling Green, Ky., Owensboro, Ky., Glendale, Ariz., and Erie, Penn have all been seeded with more Middle Eastern refugees than the entire state of New Jersey.

This is a clear violation of the refugee law. The statute directs the Office of Refugee Resettlement (ORR) to “insure that a refugee is not initially placed or resettled in an area highly impacted by the presence of refugees or comparable populations.” When making this determination the director of ORR is supposed to take into account, among other things, “the proportion of refugees and comparable entrants in the population in the area.” [8 U.S.C. 1522]

While Obama has established a plan to bring in 110,000 refugees this year, Trump can block the roughly 80,000 that are slated to come in after he takes office.

To begin with, §212(f) of Immigration and Nationality Act gives the president unilateral authority at will to shut down any form of immigration under any circumstance. In particular, §207 delegated to the president full authority to set the number of refugees to be admitted in a given year. Thus, Trump can easily shut down refugee resettlement through executive action on day one of his administration.

Even if Trump doesn’t want to take such a “drastic” step of unilaterally suspending refugee resettlement with the stroke of a pen, he could indirectly shut off the pipeline of refugees. This is where the State Department comes into play and why it’s so important to get an immediate sense of where Rex “Souter” Tillerson stands on this issue.

Three departments are involved in the refugee process, but the State Department’s Bureau of Population, Refugees, and Migration (PRM) is the gatekeeper of selecting individuals from the global pool of refugees to be brought to America. They accept these pools of refugees by deferring to the judgement of the UN’s Office of the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR). If Rex Tillerson shares the sentiments Trump expressed on the campaign trail, he can simply ignore the “Framework for Cooperation” with UNHCR and close the pipeline of new refugees.

Furthermore, as it relates to Syrian refugees, Tillerson could easily shut down the “surge operation” that the State Department set up in Amman, Jordan. By deploying extra resources to Jordan and condensing the “vetting” period to just three months, Obama’s State Department has set up a seamless pipeline in which they can churn out several thousand applications per month and get them approved by DHS. Turning out the lights on this operation can and must happen on January 20.

New Jersey: Hamas-Tied Imam Must Prove Why He Shouldn’t Be Deported


Source: The Investigative Project on Terrorism

Mohammad Qatanani is imam at the Islamic Center of Passaic County. Immigration officials have been fighting to deport him since 2006, alleging he failed to disclose connections with Hamas when he applied for permanent residency. When he came to the United States 10 years earlier, he claimed he had never been arrested or belonged to any terrorist groups.

That history makes Qatanani subject to deportation, DHS says.

Tuesday’s hearing centered on Qatanani’s October 1993 arrest and conviction by an Israeli military court on charges he provided support to Hamas. He claims Israeli authorities detained him and never charged him.

“No lawyer prior to 2008 ever told me that I had a conviction,” Qatanani said.

U.S. Immigration Judge Judge Alberto Reifkohl ruled in 2008 that the bulk of the evidence and testimony introduced by the Department of Homeland Security was not credible and granted Qatanani permanent residency, better known as a “green card.”

The Justice Department’s Board of Immigration Appeals sent the case back to Reifkohl in October 2009, finding that he erred rejecting the credibility of evidence and government testimony.

In addition, DHS attorneys bolstered some of the evidence obtained from Israeli officials, including two confessions which include statements Qatanani made about his Hamas connection. Three additional witness statements came from people who told Israeli officials that Qatanani recruited them to join Hamas

Qatanani claims he never was given translations of the Hebrew-language Israeli court records and never knew what they alleged. “There is no confession to my understanding” Qatanani said Tuesday.

He also disputed that the signatures on the documents were his, saying instead they were “similar” to his signature. DHS evidence was able to match the fingerprints on the documents to Qatanani.

It’s impossible for Qatanani to get around the fact he lied when he said he never had been arrested, Brundage said.

No ruling was issued before the hearing recessed. It is scheduled to resume next month.

This is the same imam whom:

For his support of the Hamas imam alone, Chris Christie should never have a position in Trump’s administration.
