Only 37 Republicans back plan to eliminate funding for ‘refugees’ from terrorist hotbeds

Only 37 Republican congressmen have signed on to a Texas lawmaker’s effort to eliminate funding for all refugees being sent to the U.S. from terrorist hotbeds like Syria, Afghanistan, Iraq and Somalia.

U.S. Rep. Brian Babin, R-Texas, told WND Tuesday the attacks in Minnesota, New York and New Jersey over the weekend, combined with earlier attacks by Muslim immigrants or sons of immigrants on Orlando, San Bernardino and Chattanooga, have created a “clear and present danger” that Congress must address. Especially since the sitting president, Barack Obama, refuses not only to stem the flow of Muslim refugees but has been on a crusade to increase that flow before he leaves office in January.

Yet, when he tried last week to muster support for legislation that would do just that, Babin found very little support among his own Republican colleagues in Congress.

Refugees bound for the U.S. are selected by the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees, then screened by federal agents for ties to formal terrorist organizations like ISIS or al-Qaida, but without any questions about their loyalty to Shariah law.

That’s why Babin invited all 247 Republicans in the House to sign a letter calling for language to be inserted into an upcoming budget resolution that would cut funding for U.N. refugees coming to America from countries with active jihadist movements.

Babin could find only 36 congressmen who would sign his letter, which he sent on Sept. 15 to Speaker Paul Ryan and Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy, who are negotiating the so-called “continuing resolution” to fund the government for another three months.

Read Babin’s letter to Speaker Ryan asking for funding to be cut for refugee arrivals from terrorist countries.

“It may be the latter part of the week before we reach a vote on the resolution. I don’t know the time table. I just know this is our only chance to get included things that are such a crisis for our country and especially this refugee program,” Babin told WND.

The terrorist attacks on Minnesota, New York and New Jersey over the weekend make the issue even more critical, he said.

“My letter would stop the intake from the Middle East and North Africa and eliminate funding to bring those in,” he said.

Babin isn’t the only one getting worried about the rising number of refugees coming terror hot spots.

NumbersUSA, one of the largest immigration watchdog groups, sent out an email alert Tuesday calling for a moratorium on all resettlements from these danger zones.

As Babin was discussing his plan with WND to keep radical Islamists out of the U.S., President Obama spoke before the United Nations global refugee summit in New York, trying to convince the West to accept more refugees fleeing wars in the Middle East. He called on leaders not to give up on “global integration” and turn to isolationist policies.

Even among the members of the House Freedom Caucus, whose roster includes the most conservative members of the Republican majority, only 18 of the 41 caucus members signed on to the Babin plan to cut funding.

“At least these people should have been on our side,” said refugee watchdog Ann Corcoran, who blogs at RefugeeResttlementWatch.org. “It’s maddening, unless they are getting some kind of money, from the Chamber of Commerce or somebody.”

Freedom Caucus members who have not signed Babin’s letter are as follows:

  • Jim Jordan of Ohio, Chair
  • Justin Amash of Michigan
  • Rod Blum of Iowa
  • Ken Buck of Colorado
  • Curt Clawson of Florida
  • Ron DeSantis of Florida
  • John Fleming of Louisiana
  • Trent Franks of Arizona
  • Scott Garrett of New Jersey
  • Paul Gosar of Arizona
  • Morgan Griffith of Virginia
  • Raúl Labrador of Idaho
  • Alex Mooney of West Virginia
  • Mick Mulvaney of South Carolina
  • Gary Palmer of Alabama
  • Steve Pearce of New Mexico
  • Scott Perry of Pennsylvania
  • Ted Poe of Texas
  • Bill Posey of Florida
  • Keith Rothfus of Pennsylvania
  • Mark Sanford of South Carolina
  • David Schweikert of Arizona
  • Marlin Stutzman of Indiana

The 17 Freedom Caucus members who have joined with Babin, also a caucus member, to sign the letter to Ryan are as follows: Dave Brat of Virginia, Jim Bridenstine of Oklahoma, Mo Brooks of Alabama, Warren Davidson of Ohio, Scott DesJarlais of Tennessee, Jeff Duncan of South Carolina, Louie Gohmert of Texas, Andy Harris of Maryland, Jody Hice of Georgia, Walter Jones of North Carolina, Steve King of Iowa, Barry Loudermilk of Georgia, Cynthia Lummis of Wyoming, Mark Meadows of North Carolina, Matt Salmon of Arizona, Randy Weber of Texas and Ted Yoho of Florida.

Leaked FBI Data Reveal 7,700 Terrorist Encounters in USA…in One Year!

It’s a one issue election.terror-enountersSource: Leaked FBI Data Reveal 7,700 Terrorist Encounters in USA in One Year; Border States Most Targeted

by Brandon Darby

Leaked documents with sensitive FBI data exclusively obtained by Breitbart Texas reveal that 7,712 terrorist encounters occurred within the United States in one year and that many of those encounters occurred near the U.S.-Mexico border. The incidents are characterized as “Known or Suspected Terrorist Encounters.” Some of the encounters occurred near the U.S.-Mexico border at ports-of-entry and some occurred in between, indicating that persons known or reasonably suspected of being terrorists attempted to sneak into the U.S. across the border. In all, the encounters occurred in higher numbers in border states.

Some of the documents pertain to the entire U.S., while others focus specifically on the state of Arizona. The documents are labeled, “UNCLASSIFIED/LAW ENFORCEMENT SENSITIVE” and contain data from the FBI-administered Terrorist Screening Center, the organization maintaining the Terrorist Screening Database, also known as the “Terror Watch List.”

The leaked FBI data are contained in a fusion center’s educational materials, specifically the Arizona Counter Terrorism Information Center’s (ACTIC) “Known or Suspected Terrorist (KST) Encounters Briefing” covering from July 20 2015 through July 20 2016. The leaked documents are composed of 10 individual pages, but Breitbart Texas chose to release only nine of them due to page 10 containing contact information for ACTIC.

Page Two of the documents contains a map of the entire U.S. with the numbers of encounters per state. The states with the highest encounters are all border states. Texas, California, and Arizona–all states with a shared border with Mexico–rank high in encounters.

Page Three shows a map of where the encounters occurred in the state of Arizona. The majority from this map occurred in Phoenix, a major destination point for people who illegally cross the U.S.-Mexico border. The map also shows that encounters occurred at ports-of-entry, likely from persons either walking up and asking for asylum or from Sinaloa cartel attempts to smuggle them into the U.S. in vehicles. Most significantly, the map shows that many of the encounters occurred near the border outside of ports-of-entry, indicating that persons were attempting to sneak into the U.S.

Page Six shows a pie chart indicating that the majority of encounters in Arizona were with Islamic known or suspected terrorists, both Sunni and Shi’a. Eighty-nine encounters were Sunni, 56 were Shi’a, 70 were “Other International Terrorist Groups or Affiliates,” and only 52 were with “Domestic Terrorism.”

Page 7 contains definitions to help understand the maps.

Imam shoots, kills Jordanian writer at trial over satirical cartoon

That’s in modern, moderate Jordan, our ally.

Source: Jordan writer in blasphemy case Nahid Hattar killed – BBC News

A Jordanian writer charged with offending Islam after allegedly sharing a satirical cartoon on his Facebook page has been killed.

Nahid Hattar was hit by three bullets outside the court in the capital Amman where he was standing trial.

Police have arrested the suspected shooter, Riad Abdullah. Jordanian media said he was local imam who had been upset by the cartoon.

But security sources told the Jordan Times he was a known extremist.

A witness told the Associate Press news agency that Mr Abdullah had a long beard and was wearing a long robe, common among conservative Muslims.

Nahid Hattar was detained in August for 15 days on charges of insulting God Allah after he published a cartoon depicting a bearded man lying in bed with two women and smoking, asking God Allah to bring him a drink.

Mr Hattar was born a Christian, but considered himself an atheist. He was attacked on social media for being anti-Islam.

He said he had not meant to cause offence and wanted to expose radical Islamists’ view of heaven.

Authorities said he had broken the law by sharing the cartoon.

Mr Hattar’s supporters say they hold the government responsible for his death.

“The prime minister was the first one who incited against Nahid when he ordered his arrest and put him on trial for sharing the cartoon, and that ignited the public against him and led to his killing,” the writer’s cousin, Saad Hattar said.

The government has publicly condemned the killing.

A spokesperson told Petra news agency: “The government will strike with an iron hand all those who exploit this crime to broadcast speeches of hatred to our community.”

FBI: NYC/NJ Bomber’s Father Never Contacted Us, “At No Time” Discussed Son’s Interest in Jihad

Remember all those headlines and video snippet’s of Ahmad Rahami’s father last weekend claiming he reported his son to the FBI?

The media never bothered to fact-check the claim and according to the FBI, the father was lying. h/t @paulsperry_

It was the FBI who initiated contact with the bomber’s father, as the facts slowly trickle in midway through an AP article praising the father’s imam. Source: Associated Press 

A senior FBI official pushed back against Mohammad Rahami’s claim to have warned agents about his son.

FBI agents interviewed the father in 2014 after Ahmad Rahami’s arrest on charges — later dropped — that he stabbed one of his brothers in the leg. The FBI initiated contact because the father had expressed concern to someone following that episode over his son’s internet use and some of his associates.

But in interviews with agents, Mohammed Rahami “at no time” discussed his son’s radicalization or potential interest in al-Qaeda, the Taliban or their propaganda, according to the FBI official, who wasn’t authorized to discuss the case by name and spoke on the condition of anonymity.

When Ahmad Rahami was arrested, prosecutors said he was carrying a journal that praised Osama bin Laden and other Muslim extremists, fumed about what he saw as the U.S. government’s killing of Muslim holy warriors and declared, “Death to your oppression.”


More from the NYT:

When agents first interviewed the elder Mr. Rahami on Aug. 26, they asked him about his comments to the local police, according to some of the officials.

The father told them that he was referring to gangsters and criminals, not terrorists, the officials said.

But Mr. Rahami’s father told the F.B.I. that he had walked by his son’s room and observed him watching a YouTube video of explosions, the officials said. It was unclear what kind of explosions were in the video.

On Sept. 12, 2014, the F.B.I. returned and told the father that his son had been cleared of any connection to terrorism, and on Sept. 19, the review was formally closed. The father said he was not surprised by the F.B.I.’s findings. He repeated that his son was not a terrorist but had been hanging out with “bad people,” officials said.

When told on Thursday that law enforcement officials contradicted his version of events, he said, “It’s a lie,” and that he stood by his account.

A Month of Islam and Multiculturalism in Britain: August 2016

by Soeren Kern

  • “To use the term ‘honor killing’ when describing the murder of a family member — overwhelmingly females — due to the perpetrators’ belief that they have brought ‘shame’ on a family normalizes murder for cultural reasons and sets it apart from other killings when there should be no distinction.” — Jane Collins, MEP, UK Independence Party.
  • Voter fraud has been deliberately overlooked in Muslim communities because of “political correctness,” according to Sir Eric Pickles, author of a government report on voter fraud.
  • “Not only should we raise the flag, but everybody in the Muslim community should have to pledge loyalty to Britain in schools. There is no conflict between being a Muslim and a Briton.” — Khalil Yousuf, spokesman for the Ahmadiyya Muslim community.
  • Only a tiny proportion — between five and ten percent — of the people whose asylum applications are denied are actually deported, according to a British asylum judge, quoted in the Daily Mail.
  • Police in Telford — dubbed the child sex capital of Britain — were accused of covering up allegations that hundreds of children in the town were sexually exploited by Pakistani sex gangs.

August 1. Nearly 900 Syrians in Britain were arrested in 2015 for crimes including rape and child abuse, police statistics revealed. The British government has pledged to resettle up to 20,000 Syrian refugees in the UK by the end of 2020. “The government seems not to have vetted those it has invited into the country,” said MEP Ray Finch. The disclosure came after Northumbria Police and the BBC were accused of covering up allegations that a gang of Syrians sexually assaulted two teenage girls in a park in Newcastle.

August 1. Male refugees settling in Britain must receive formal training on how to treat women, a senior Labour MP said. Thangam Debbonaire, chairman of the All Party Parliamentary Group on Refugees, called for a “refugee integration strategy” so that men “understand what is expected of them.” She said it could help prevent sexual harassment and issues “including genital mutilation.”

August 2. Jane Collins, MEP for the UK Independence Party (UKIP), launched a petition calling for the BBC to stop using the term “honor killing.” The petition says the term “cultural murder” should be used instead. It states:

“To use the term ‘honor killing’ when describing the murder of a family member — overwhelmingly females — due to the perpetrators’ belief that they have brought ‘shame’ on a family normalizes murder for cultural reasons and sets it apart from other killings when there should be no distinction.

“Murder is murder, whether it be for cultural excuses or others. The term ‘honor killing’ is a euphemism for a brutal murder based on cultural beliefs which have no place in Britain or anywhere else in the world.”

August 3. Zakaria Bulhan, a 19-year-old Norwegian man of Somali descent, stabbed to death an American woman in London’s Russell Square. He also wounded five others. Police dismissed terror as a possible motive for the attack, which they blamed on mental health problems. But HeatStreet, a news and opinion website, revealed that Bulhan had uploaded books advocating violent jihad on social media sites.

August 4. A public swimming pool in Luton announced gender-segregated sessions for “cultural reasons.” The move will give men exclusive access to the larger 50-meter pool, while women will have to use the smaller 20-meter pool. The gender-segregated sessions are named ‘Alhamdulillahswimming,’ an Arabic phrase which means “Praise be to Allah.” UKIP MEP Jane Collins said the decision to have segregated times for swimming was “a step backwards for community relations and gender equality.” She added:

“The leisure center said this is for cultural reasons and I think we all know that means for the Muslim community. This kind of behavior, pandering to one group, harms community relations and creates tension. Under English law we have equality between men and women. This is not the same in cultures that believe in Sharia Law.”

August 5. Egyptian members of the Muslim Brotherhood may be allowed to seek asylum in Britain, according to new guidance from the Home Office. The document states that high profile or politically active members

“may be able to show that they are at risk of persecution, including of being held in detention, where they may be at risk of ill-treatment, trial also without due process and disproportionate punishment…. In such cases, a grant of asylum will be appropriate.”

The new guidance contradicts previous government policy. In December 2015, then Prime Minister David Cameron said Britain would “refuse visas to members and associates of the Muslim Brotherhood who are on record as having made extremist comments.”

August 5. Stephen Bennett, a 39-year-old father of seven from Manchester, was sentenced to 180 hours of community service for posting “grossly offensive” anti-Muslim comments on Facebook. One of the offending comments: “Don’t come over to this country and treat it like your own. Britain first.” He was arrested under the Malicious Communications Act. The judge said Bennett, whose mother-in-law and sister-in-law are Muslims, was guilty of “running the risk of stirring up racial hatred.” He described it as “conduct capable of playing into the hands of the enemies of this country.”

August 6. British MPs face a six-year alcohol ban when the Palace of Westminster, which has dozens of bars and restaurants, undergoes a multi-billion-pound refurbishment beginning in 2020. They will move to an office building operating under Islamic Sharia law. Their new home, Richmond House, is one of three government buildings which switched ownership from British taxpayers to Middle Eastern investors in 2014 to finance a £200 million Islamic bond scheme — as part of an effort to make the UK a global hub for Islamic finance. Critics say the scheme effectively imposes Sharia law onto government premises.

August 8. Lisa Duffy, a candidate to succeed Nigel Farage as leader of the UK Independence Party (UKIP), called for a ban on Muslim women wearing a veil in public buildings, shopping centers and on buses and trains. She also demanded that Islamic faith schools be closed to combat radicalization, as well as a “complete and comprehensive ban” on Sharia courts in the UK. She said the veil is “a symbol of aggressive separatism that can only foster extremism” and claimed that it is often “forced on women by men who view them as their property.”

August 8. Stanley Johnson, a former Conservative MEP and Chairman of the European Parliament’s Intergroup Group on Animal Welfare, called for all halal meat offered for sale in the UK to be clearly labeled as such. He wrote:

“The halal market is worth £2.6 billion in Britain alone, and the export market is also growing particularly in the Middle East. Most of us eat halal meat unwittingly on a daily basis, since it is sold in most major outlets, including big brand-name supermarkets, without being labelled as such.”

August 9. Tanveer Ahmed, a 32-year-old taxi driver from Bradford, was sentenced to 27 years in prison for the “barbaric, premeditated” murder of a shopkeeper in Glasgow. Ahmed admitted to repeatedly stabbing Asad Shah to death outside his shop in March 2016 in a sectarian attack motivated by hatred of Shah’s religious views.

Ahmed, a Sunni Muslim, confessed to attacking Shah, who belonged to the Ahmadi branch of Islam, which believes Mohammed was not the final Muslim prophet. As he was led from the dock, Ahmed raised a clenched fist and shouted in Arabic: “Praise for the Prophet Mohammed, there is only one Prophet.” His cry was repeated by supporters in the public gallery.

August 11. ITV News reported that Kadiza Sultana, one of three British schoolgirls who left their homes in east London to join the Islamic State, was killed by a Russian airstrike in Raqqa, Syria. Sultana had been living in Syria after leaving her home in February 2015 to join IS. She had travelled with her friends Amira Base and Shamima Begum, both of whom are believed to still be in Raqqa. “Sultana had become disillusioned with life in the medieval terror state and was making plans to flee back to Britain,” ITV said.

August 11. Muslim women are the most economically disadvantaged group in British society, according to a report by the Women and Equalities Committee of the House of Commons. Figures suggest they are three times more likely to be unemployed job-seekers than women generally, and twice as likely to be economically inactive.

The report also found that jobless rates in the Muslim community run at more than double the rate of the general population (12.8% against 5.4%). It called for a change in law that would force companies to introduce “name blind” applications to reduce “unconscious bias” against Muslim and other minority candidates.

August 12. Voter fraud has been deliberately overlooked in Muslim communities because of “political correctness,” according to a government report. Sir Eric Pickles, author of the report, warned that election fraud was commonplace “especially in communities of Pakistani and Bangladeshi background” but it has been ignored because of “over-sensitivities about ethnicity and religion.”

The investigation began after a scandal in Tower Hamlets, London, where Mayor Lutfur Rahman was removed and his election declared void after he was found by a court to have committed electoral fraud, including vote-rigging. Pickles said never again in Britain should people be told they will “burn in hell” if they do not back a particular candidate. He added: “Electoral malpractice is far more common than just one isolated London borough thanks to the state’s collective state of denial.”

Maryland imam being investigated for funding Detroit ISIS supporter

Imam laughs off allegations of plotting with Michigan suspect

Imam Suleiman Bengharsa aka Sheikh Suleiman Anwar

Source: FBI probes Md. terror link in Detroit case

Detroit — FBI agents are investigating an alleged conspiracy involving Detroit terror suspect Sebastian Gregerson and believe he was plotting violent jihad with a Maryland imam, The Detroit News has learned.

The conspiracy angle is revealed in more than 200 pages of sealed federal court records obtained by The News that offer new details about an FBI counterterrorism investigation spanning at least three states. The investigation emerged July 31 when Gregerson of Detroit was arrested in Monroe after allegedly buying fragmentation grenades from an undercover FBI agent and amassing an arsenal of weapons.

Maryland Imam Suleiman Bengharsa allegedly helped finance the arsenal, which included two AK-47s, handguns, seven rifles, a shotgun and thousands of rounds of ammunition, according to the court records. It is unknown whether the imam was financing weapons purchases in other parts of the country.

“Based on the totality of the aforementioned information and evidence, there is reason to believe that Bengharsa and Gregerson are engaged in discussions and preparations for some violent act on behalf of (the Islamic State),” an FBI agent wrote in a Jan. 7 search warrant application.

The scope, targets and number of people involved in the investigation are unclear, but the case also involves Virginia.

Bengharsa, 59, of Clarksburg, Md., laughed away most of the FBI’s allegations, which he called “ridiculous,” and denied being an Islamic State supporter.

“No, no, no, that is absolutely untrue,” Bengharsa said during a phone interview with The News on Wednesday. “It might appear that way. I am an advocate of the United States and the West getting the hell out of the Middle East and the Muslim world.

“It’s ridiculous. All I can say is it’s ridiculous,” he added. “If this was the case, why haven’t they come to arrest me?

Bengharsa, who also is known as Sheikh Suleiman Anwar, has not been charged with a crime during the ongoing investigation. Continue reading

NYC: Muslim gets 9 years for smashing gay guy with chair at BBQ joint

Source: Man gets 9 years for assault on gay couple at Dallas BBQ – NY Daily News

Bayna Lekheim El-Amin, 42, who had about two dozen supporters in the courtroom, may have been slapped by one of the victims with a canvas bag but had no right to react with the brutal beating, Manhattan Supreme Court Justice Arlene Goldberg said as she handed down the stiff sentence to the remorseless brute.

“That you did not cause serious physical injury to them was only by luck,” Goldberg said.

El-Amin, who is 6 feet 6 inches and 280 pounds, is seen on cell phone footage from May 2015 getting whacked by a canvas bag carried by Jonathan Snipes, who said he thought he heard El-Amin refer to him and his boyfriend Ethan York-Adams as “f—-ts.”

An enraged El-Amin then knocked Snipes to the ground and stomped on his head. After a long time passed and the incident seemed to be over, he picked up a chair and swung it at their heads.

A loud thud can be heard on the footage from the impact on York-Adams’ skull.

El-Amin, who faced 3½ to 15 years behind bars, complained he had been railroaded and did not apologize for his conduct.

He claimed Snipes had a “weapon,” which was disputed by evidence, and that discrimination was the driving factor in his fate.

“I feel like my race was involved in that … if the situation was reversed and I would have went up to them, it would have been different. It wouldn’t have come out the same,” he said.

He also insisted he never said the homophobic slur he was suspected of and pointed to his history of working as an LGBT activist.

Goldberg fired back that the fact the district attorney declined to prosecute Snipes for the bag swatting was irrelevant.

She also said she didn’t see a connection to his race in the scenario. “I just do not see there was any evidence of that,” she said.
