Obama picks Saudi’s over Americans, vetoes 9/11 bill

President Obama on Friday vetoed legislation that would allow families of 9/11 victims to sue Saudi Arabia in U.S courts, setting up a high-stakes showdown with Congress.

“I recognize that there is nothing that could ever erase the grief the 9/11 families have endured,” Obama wrote in his veto message. “Enacting JASTA into law, however would neither protect Americans from terrorist attacks nor improve the effectiveness of our response to such attacks.”

Obama’s move opens up the possibility that lawmakers could override his veto for the first time with a two-thirds vote in both chambers.

Republican and Democratic leaders have said they are committed to holding an override vote, and the bill’s drafters say they have the support to force the bill to become law.

The Justice Against Sponsors of Terrorism Act (JASTA) unanimously passed through both chambers by voice vote.

But the timing of the president’s veto is designed to erode congressional support for the bill and put off a politically damaging override vote until after the November elections.

Obama waited until the very end of the 10-day period he had to issue a veto, hoping to buy time to lobby members of Congress against the measure.

White House officials also hope congressional leaders will leave Washington to hit the campaign trail before trying for an override, kicking a vote to the lame-duck session after the election.

But Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) has said the upper chamber will remain in session until the veto override vote is done.

“Now that we have received the veto message from the president, the Senate will consider it as soon as practicable in this work period,”  said David Popp, a McConnell spokesman.

Under current law, 9/11 victims’ families may sue a country designated as a state sponsor of terrorism, such as Iran. JASTA would allow U.S. citizens to sue countries without that designation, including Saudi Arabia.

The measure has touched a political nerve ahead of an election in which terrorism has emerged as a central issue. It has strong bipartisan support and is backed by 9/11 families’ organizations.

Those families have sought damages from Saudi Arabia, since 15 of the 19 hijackers on Sept. 11, 2001 hailed from that country.

Critics have long been accused the Saudi government of directly or indirectly supporting the attacks, though a concrete link has never been proven.

In a statement, the 9/11 Families & Survivors United for Justice Against Terrorism said they are “outraged and dismayed” by the veto and call his reasoning “unconvincing and unsupportable.”

DC: Muslim pleads guilty to aiding Islamic Movement of Uzbekistan

A Dutch-Turkish man has pleaded guilty to providing material support to the Islamic Movement of Uzbekistan, a designated foreign terrorist organization.

Federal officials announced Thursday that 58-year-old Irfan Demirtas pleaded guilty in U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia.

Officials say Demirtas was charged in a 2011 sealed indictment related to actions between 2006 and 2008 when he was a Netherlands resident and a fundraiser and facilitator for the group. The government says the militant Islamic group, formed in 1991, aims to overthrow Uzbekistan’s government and create an Islamic state. In his plea, Demirtas acknowledges providing funds to the group’s leader.

Demirtas was arrested in Germany in 2015 and extradited to the U.S. He faces a statutory maximum of 15 years and financial penalties at sentencing Nov. 30.


Why didn’t the Dutch or Germans try him? Why not the Afghans? What is he doing in a U.S. court where taxpayers will have to pay for his incarceration for the next ten plus years? The unconvincing answer is found in an FBI press release:

“His extradition to the United States is an important step forward in holding him accountable for his alleged role in fomenting terror across Europe and the Middle East. Demirtas is one of four defendants currently pending trial on international terrorism charges in separate cases in the federal court here in our nation’s capital. These cases highlight our resolve to find and bring to justice those who support terror around the world.”

“Demirtas was arrested and extradited to face justice in the U.S. because of his role as the European-based fundraiser and recruiter for a designated terrorist organization that directly worked against U.S. forces and our allies,” said Assistant Director in Charge McCabe.


So the better question is, where will he go when his sentence is over? He may be coming to your town.

At least 858 deportees from ‘countries of concern’ granted US citizenship

Countries of concern is a euphemism for Muslim countries…and Mexico.

Source: More than 800 immigrants mistakenly granted citizenship

WASHINGTON (AP) — The U.S. government has mistakenly granted citizenship to at least 858 immigrants from countries of concern to national security or with high rates of immigration fraud who had pending deportation orders, according to an internal Homeland Security audit released Monday.

The Homeland Security Department’s inspector general found that the immigrants used different names or birthdates to apply for citizenship with U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services and such discrepancies weren’t caught because their fingerprints were missing from government databases.

DHS said in an emailed statement that an initial review of these cases suggest that some of the individuals may have ultimately qualified for citizenship, and that the lack of digital fingerprint records does not necessarily mean they committed fraud.

Then why did they have deportation orders?

The report does not identify any of the immigrants by name, but Inspector General John Roth’s auditors said they were all from “special interest countries” — those that present a national security concern for the United States — or neighboring countries with high rates of immigration fraud. The report did not identify those countries.

DHS said the findings reflect what has long been a problem for immigration officials — old paper-based records containing fingerprint information that can’t be searched electronically. DHS says immigration officials are in the process of uploading these files and that officials will review “every file” identified as a case of possible fraud.

DHS is a failure.

Roth’s report said fingerprints are missing from federal databases for as many as 315,000 immigrants with final deportation orders or who are fugitive criminals. Immigration and Customs Enforcement has not reviewed about 148,000 of those immigrants’ files to add fingerprints to the digital record.

The government has known about the information gap and its impact on naturalization decisions since at least 2008 when a Customs and Border Protection official identified 206 immigrants who used a different name or other biographical information to gain citizenship or other immigration benefits, though few cases have been investigated.

Roth’s report said federal prosecutors have accepted two criminal cases that led to the immigrants being stripped of their citizenship. But prosecutors declined another 26 cases. ICE is investigating 32 other cases after closing 90 investigations.

ICE officials told auditors that the agency hadn’t pursued many of these cases in the past because federal prosecutors “generally did not accept immigration benefits fraud cases.” ICE said the Justice Department has now agreed to focus on cases involving people who have acquired security clearances, jobs of public trust or other security credentials.

Several members of Congress criticized the Obama administration Monday in the wake of Roth’s report, though the report suggests that the gaps extend several years earlier than the Obama administration.

Chairman of the House Homeland Security Committee Michael McCaul said ICE should quickly investigate all of the cases at issue and ensure that all immigration fingerprint records are digitized in short order.

Mistakenly awarding citizenship to someone ordered deported can have serious consequences because U.S. citizens can typically apply for and receive security clearances or take security-sensitive jobs.

At least three of the immigrants-turned-citizens were able to acquire aviation or transportation worker credentials, granting them access to secure areas in airports or maritime facilities and vessels. Their credentials were revoked after they were identified as having been granted citizenship improperly, Roth said in his report.

A fourth person is now a law enforcement officer.

Roth recommended that all of the outstanding cases be reviewed and fingerprints in those cases be added to the government’s database and that immigration enforcement officials create a system to evaluate each of the cases of immigrants who were improperly granted citizenship. DHS officials agreed with the recommendations and said the agency is working to implement the changes.

Does anyone really think this was an accident as the the coordinated media headlines are projecting? One need look no further than to whom the report was issued:

oig-report

The government has known about this problem since at least 2008 and refused to fix it. Just like Illegal Aliens Claiming BILLIONS in Fraudulent IRS Child Tax Credits at U.S. taxpayer expense.

Minnesota mall stabber was Somali Muslim; knifed those who said they weren’t Muslim

Muslim contributions to the fabric of America continue. Thankfully, the death toll didn’t rise this time, thanks to the actions of an off-duty police officer.

ST. CLOUD, Minn. — A federal law enforcement source tells CBS News that the deceased suspect in a Minnesota mall attack that wounded eight Saturday, was asking people if they were Muslim and stabbing those who said they were not.

The father of the suspect has identified him as a 22-year-old college student.

Ahmed Adan told the Star Tribune of Minneapolis that police told him Saturday night that his son, Dahir A. Adan, died at Crossroads Center mall in St. Cloud.

He says police didn’t mention the attack on the mall, but they seized photos and other materials from the family’s apartment.


Reminiscent of the Kenya Mall Massacre where the Islamic terrorists freed those who said they were Muslim and killed those who were not.


More via Officer, suspect ID’d in Crossroads stabbings

The FBI is investigating the Crossroads Center knife attacks on Saturday as “a potential act of terrorism.”

Nine people were injured by an attacker who was killed inside the Macy’s store by an off-duty Avon police officer.

St. Cloud Mayor Dave Kleis identified that officer as Jason Falconer during a press conference Sunday.

A short time earlier, St. Cloud Somali-American community members identified the deceased suspect as Dahir Adan.

Leaders of the Somali-American community in St. Cloud gathered Sunday with his family and issued a statement of sympathy for the family and the nine victims of the attack.

Community leader Abdul Kulane said as far as the family and community know, the suspect did not have any history of violence. He was known as a smart, accomplished student at Apollo High School. He was a junior at St. Cloud State University, Kulane said. Adan was also working part-time as a private security officer, leaders said.

The Orlando jihadist Omar Mateen was a security officer too.

The last time he was seen by family was about 6 or 6:30 p.m. Saturday when he said he was going to the mall to buy an iPhone 7. They don’t know what happened after that.

The attack was reported about 8:15 p.m.

St. Cloud Police Chief Blair Anderson said the victims were stabbed by a man dressed in a private security uniform.

Kleis called Falconer a hero and said he “happened to be in the right place at the right time.” Falconer identified himself as a police officer, and the suspect lunged at him, Kleis said.

Initially, Anderson said eight victims were taken to St. Cloud Hospital. On Sunday morning, hospital Communications Specialist Chris Nelson told the Times that five were released, and three were admitted with injuries that were not life-threatening. They were discharged by Sunday evening.

A ninth victim drove himself to the hospital in Long Prairie and was initially unknown to officials.

Anderson said the attacker, who was armed with a knife, reportedly made references to Allah during the attack and asked at least one person whether they were Muslim. But Anderson pointedly declined to call the attacks an act of terrorism, saying the motive isn’t yet known.

Like the police, Minnesota FBI spokesman Kyle Loven declined to say Sunday if investigators believe the attack was a terrorist act. The FBI says it is assisting St. Cloud police in the investigation.


The Islamic State stated it was one of their attacks:

The Refugee Admissions Program was the brainchild of then Senator Joe Biden and Bill Clinton started the Somali Muslim pipeline to Minnesota in the 1990’s. Hillary Clinton has vowed to make it much worse.

Anaheim: “Tens of thousands” of Muslims turn Angel Stadium into giant mosque (video)

One day after 9/11. Source: Thousands gather at Angel Stadium to celebrate Islamic holiday of Eid-al-Adha – The Orange County Register

Tens of thousands of Muslims gathered in the parking lot of Angel Stadium on Monday morning for prayers marking the Islamic holiday of Eid al-Adha.

The event was organized by the four largest mosques in Orange County – the Islamic Center of Irvine, the Islamic Society of Orange County in Garden Grove, and the Islamic Institute of Orange County and West Coast Islamic Society, both in Anaheim.

Organizers had expected about 15,000 people, but attendance far exceeded that number, they said. The prayers were held outdoors in a fenced-off area of the stadium’s parking lot.

“We had two services, and many people ended up praying outside the fence because there was no room,” said Nicole Bovey Alhakawati, spokeswoman for the Islamic Institute of Orange County.

The prayers and celebrations were marred by four protesters in the parking lot who carried signs disparaging the Prophet Muhammad, held up Bibles and yelled out to attendees.

Eid al-Adha is one of two major Islamic holidays. It celebrates the culmination of the annual pilgrimage, or hajj, which brings together millions of Muslims in Mecca, Saudi Arabia. The holiday and pilgrimage are a commemoration of the Prophet Abraham’s willingness to sacrifice in obedience to God.

On this day, Muslims sacrifice sheep as a symbol of Abraham’s surrender to God. They celebrate by performing morning prayer services, exchanging gifts, and visiting friends and family.

Alhakawati said protesters come every year to the event but were much louder and disruptive this year.

Khalil Hamidi, who was at the prayers with his family, including his 11-year-old niece, said the protesters were yelling obscenities in front of young children.

“They were yelling out hateful things and holding Bibles,” he said. “I have many close friends who are Christians. What these people did today was not Christian.”

There was some pushing and shoving between the protesters and the attendees, Hamidi said. The mosques organizing the prayers had rented the space for a private event, he said.

Anaheim police officers who responded to reports of the incident dispersed the crowds in an orderly manner and made no arrests, Sgt. Daron Wyatt said.

“There was some verbal bantering between the groups,” he said. “But it didn’t get physical or out of hand.”

The protesters were in the parking lot, which is open to the public, he said.

“Everyone needs to understand we have religious freedom and everyone is allowed to air their viewpoints,” he said. “It just needs to be done in a peaceful manner without violence.”


Translated: Muslims need to understand. But Muslim settlers in the United States don’t care about our kufr laws.

That said, for all the “tens of thousands” who attended including media, we couldn’t find any images or videos anywhere online with more the 10-20 people in them. We did find the video below that contradicts what DEEPA BHARATH and his/her photographer presented to readers.

Our Muslim neighbors chant the murderous rally cry, Allah Akbar as they attempt to take out Ruben Israel. The video ends with an angry Muslim telling his comrades, ” I am ashamed to be a Muslim.” He also called them cowards as they refused to carry out a attack on Ruben Israel.

Remember, Anaheim has now officially recognized the area as “Little Arabia.”

Indiana: Muslim teen who sought local targets, indicted for terror support

INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — A suburban Indianapolis teenager accused of trying to travel overseas to join the Islamic State militant group has been formally indicted.

A federal grand jury indicted Akram Musleh on Wednesday on a charge of providing material support to a terrorist organization. The Brownsburg man, who was 18 at the time of his June arrest, faces a Sept. 23 initial hearing. He’s being held in federal custody.

FBI agents arrested Musleh as he tried to board a bus to New York. Prosecutors have said he planned to fly to Morocco and on to territory controlled by the Islamic State. A criminal complaint alleges Musleh intended to join the terror group.

Messages seeking comment were left for two of Musleh’s attorneys.


As we noted here, Musleh is a big fan of Barrack Hussein Obama: Indiana: Muslim high school student tried to join ISIS, sought local targets

In addition to trying to travel to the Middle East, the FBI alleges Musleh “conducted extensive internet searches on explosive materials, including: dynamite, flash powder, explosive precursors, instructions on constructing explosive devices and explosive chemical recipes.” An agent conducting surveillance on Musleh reportedly observed him shopping for pressure cookers at the Brownsburg Walmart.

The criminal complaint includes a number of alleged conversations between Musleh and an unidentified person in which Musleh expresses his desire to be in an Islamic State propaganda video. The two also allegedly discussed the possibility of Musleh attacking a “drone place.”

FBI agents obtained a court order in May to search Musleh’s phone. Investigators reportedly recovered files related to jihad, martyrdom and the Islamic State on the device.akram-musleh-isisMusleh searched online for information about potential terror targets in Indiana, explosive materials and pressure cookers.

Iranian Immigrant: “the pernicious evil I escaped from (sharia) is now coming here”

By Aynaz Anni Cyrus

At the age of 9, Qur’anic teachings and Islamic traditions forced me into womanhood. My thoughts, my actions and my life were no longer my own. From that moment on, I lost all rights as a person, as my instruction in preparation to marry and bear children became my only purpose in life. No longer would I be allowed in public without my hijab; prayer and submission would dominate my days. The life of a carefree child at play came to an abrupt and sudden end.

For the next 9 years, I would suffer terrible cruelty under Islam. Rape, lashings, arrests and beatings were my life because I was regarded as property to be “handled” rather than a human being to be loved. During those nine years, I was sold into marriage to a much older man who abused me terribly. A bruised body and broken bones became a common reality for me, and there was little I could do to stop it. Divorce was not an option. Islamic law offers women little support in abusive marriages.

I was trapped, like so many other young girls and women around me were. My silent screams of desperation would remain unheard — until the day I decided I would rather die escaping than continue to live my life as a slave.

Fourteen years have now passed since I gained my freedom and began my mission to help and liberate those still trapped in Islamic countries. I do my best to be a voice for the voiceless who are still living a nightmare under the tyrannical rule of Islam.

I also fight for my fellow Americans. The present danger that Islam poses to this nation is very real, despite what our leftist government and media would have you believe. And because of the willful blindness and corruption within our government and media, America is now in grave danger vis-à-vis Islamic Supremacism and Jihad. I am witness to the hidden war between Islam and the West, and I see clearly, with great sadness and fear, that we are losing.

There are those voices amongst us that argue that Sharia is compatible with American life and can coexist harmoniously alongside the U.S. Constitution. Sorry, but I know Sharia. I know Islam. The coexistence of Sharia with the U.S. Constitution is impossible. And it is crucial to crystallize this fact and to expose exactly what Sharia is because it is now making significant gains on our territory.

Sharia severely limits individual rights, and every country ruled by Sharia forces its citizens to adhere to a strict code of living in accordance with the Qur’an, Hadith and the Supreme leader’s ruling. The concept of free speech, for instance, is anathema to Islam. So is the notion of the individual. In Islam, it is “Allah” who dictates and defines the limits on acceptable and unacceptable actions. In Islam, it is the Qur’an that dictates the lives of the believers, and they have no freedom of choice in regard to anything they do.

Sharia denies its followers basic human dignity. In Islamic countries, women are second-class citizens, mere property, and denied many of the rights Americans take for granted. The right to initiate divorce, travel alone, or own property unless permitted by a man is denied to a woman in Islam.

Submission of the individual is also evident in Islam’s denial of freedom of religion. Under Sharia, you must practice Islam. Anyone born in an Islamic country is, by law, a Muslim, regardless of heritage. Attempting to change your faith is punishable by death.

In my homeland, the Islamic Republic of Iran, Sharia is the law of the land. To speak out against it has dire consequences. Because of Sharia, Iran has one of the highest number of executions in the world. Reports and evidence of crimes against humanity come out of the Islamic Republic daily, many from released prisoners and their families.  Patterns of torture, abuse and death of political prisoners are an undeniable truth.

I am saying all of this because today, as I look at what is happening in America, I see our freedom gravely threatened. Islam is at war with us, and it will stop at nothing in its deliberate and sustained attack on our freedoms. Islamization of the West is occurring at a very fast pace and one of the vehicles Supremacists are using to achieve it is the flooding of Western countries with Muslim refugees. Islamic Obama has opened the floodgates and Hillary intends to escalate the process.

Our leadership and media, meanwhile, perpetrate the lie that accepting these refugees is somehow about tolerance. It is not about tolerance — it is about our values being exploited by our enemies to assist us in cultural suicide and leaving ourselves vulnerable to jihadist attacks.The dire danger to America lies in the lies told by our leftist government and media and the ignorance of many Americans about Islam’s true character and purpose. I fear that Americans have become blind to how precious and rare freedom is and how it must be protected and fought for without pause. I can’t help but fear that what is coming to America is what came to my homeland in 1979 — and I refuse to be silenced again. And because I refuse to be silent today, I know that certain Islamic forces have targeted me. But I will continue to speak out.

I tell you these things not to gain your sympathy, but to help you understand that our freedom is under fire. Our country is headed down a very dangerous path. The Left has succeeded in making resistance to Islamization appear to be racism and hatred. We must fight this malicious lie. We must fight to become well-informed and educated about Islam in order to defeat leftist and Islamist propaganda. By remaining silent, being afraid to be called names and ignoring reality, we will be surrendering our freedoms to the enemy.

Time is short. Every day that passes is one day we cannot spare. My hope for freedom and a better life was realized when I stepped on American soil fourteen years ago. But what frightens me is that the pernicious evil I escaped from is now coming here. I see it with my own eyes – and, catastrophically, this nation is sleepwalking like a zombie into disaster. I will not allow my freedom to be taken away again without fighting till my last breath. I hope my fellow Americans who love their country as much as I do will join me and other freedom fighters in our battle to save it.
