    The latest ISIS refugee terror plot shows why we need a travel ban right now.. Shihab Ahmed Shihab Shihab, an Iraqi Muslim, entered the country using a tourist visa. Seven months later, just before his visa was about to expire, he asked for political asylum and planned to bring his entire family into the United States. A year later the Iraqi refugee was arrested as part of a plot to kill George W. Bush for ISIS. According to a confidential informant, Shihab was actually Abu Ahmed, who boasted of being related to Al-Baghdadi, the deceased Caliph of ISIS, and claimed...

    ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. (AP) - A Florida man is charged with providing material support to the Islamic State extremist group, including attempting to buy multiple weapons and scouting potential targets for an attack in the Tampa Bay area, federal prosecutors said Wednesday.

The charge carries a potential 20-year prison term. **SNIP** According to the affidavit, Al-Azhari scouted a number of targets in the Tampa Bay region, including beaches, parks and even the Tampa FBI field...
  • Trump's Canny Diplomatic and Psychological Feints on the International Stage

    12/04/2019 5:40:58 AM PST · by Kaslin · 9 replies ^ | December 4, 2019 | Austin Bay
    Three years ago, Donald Trump began a rhetorical offensive targeting the governments of NATO nations that chronically failed to meet their allied defense financial commitments. With bombastic huff, Trump intimated that allies pay their share or America might walk. It's 2019. Few NATO members currently meet the 2% GDP defense commitment. However, several once-laggard NATO nations have increased military spending, and the alliance is stronger for it. The era of blithe freeloading has ended. Cheapskates like Germany pay a price in lost prestige. America not only hasn't walked; it is modernizing its forces. Earlier this year, President Trump began grousing...

    Actress Jamie Lee Curtis is using the Thanksgiving holiday to remind voters to choose female candidates as way to transform America’s “misogynist society.” In an editorial for NBC News, the Knives Out star described the United States as a fundamentally sexist country characterized by a pervasive hatred of women. “Unfortunately, right now, we live in a misogynist society and a lot of men hate women,” Jamie Lee Curtis said. “They just do. I think that seeing a strong woman articulate her points, argue for her position, and even get angry about the disparities she faces — whatever they are —...

    Fugitive Mexican drug lord Joaquín “El Chapo” Guzmán has reportedly threatened to eliminate ISIS if it continues to destroy his drug shipments to unspecified Middle East countries that go through the terrorist group’s so called “caliphate,” a website called reported Thursday. In a harshly-worded encrypted email addressed to ISIS head Abu Bakd Badhdadi, the head of the powerful Sinaloa Cartel reportedly said: “My men will destroy you. The world is not yours to dictate. I pity the next son of a whore who tries to interfere with the business of the Sinaloa Cartel. I will have their heart and...

    What do Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, Osama bin Laden and Ayman al-Zawahiri—that is, the late leader of ISIS, and the late and current leaders of al-Qaeda—have in common? That they’re among the world’s most notorious Islamic terrorists? Yes, but there’s something else, something more subtle, that binds them: they all began their careers as members of the Muslim Brotherhood, the oldest and most widespread political Islamic organization in the world. (snip) Of course, a year later Egypt revolted against the Brotherhood, which found itself again labeled a terrorist organization. Even so, the Brotherhood remains alive and well, particularly in the United...

That was a very nice tribute. And he’ll be coming back at...

    eremy Corbyn today insisted that mass-murdering ISIS chief Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi should have been arrested - despite the fact that the terrorist leader blew himself and two of his children up as US soldiers approached. The anti-war Labour leader questioned the US operation last month that led to the death of the cornered Islamist warlord, whose victims included innocent Britons. 'If we want to live in a world of peace and justice we should practice it as well', Mr Corbyn said in an interview with LBC on the election campaign trail.
  • As “America The Great” Fights; Trump-Hatred Soars

    11/11/2019 12:05:05 PM PST · by Liberty7732 · 20 replies
    It’s often said by conservative voices that Trump hatred is not about Trump, it’s about you! (Meaning Trump supporters.) That’s partially true. Trump haters certainly do hate his supporters, too. But it goes much deeper than that. Trump haters despise an America that sits atop the world economically, militarily and morally — particularly morally. They scoff at the idea of a bright shining city on a hill. And that means that this battle right now, today, is far bigger than Donald Trump, although he is an avatar for it. This battle is about whether America remains America — or the...

    Like Osama bin Laden, Al-Baghdadi was no longer the functional leader of his Islamic terror group by the time we hunted him down, but there is an important difference. While Al-Baghdadi had handed down operational control, he remained the Caliph. As such, the entire basis for the Islamic State and its alliances depended on him. Now he's dead and the Caliphate may be gone with him. Abdullah Qardash, the man Baghdadi had appointed to replace him while heading ISIS, is now, in theory, in charge. And, like his boss, we had him in custody and let him go. Like Baghdadi,...

    The dog that assisted in the mission that led to the death of ISIS leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi will soon visit the White House, President Trump said Wednesday. "He's coming to the White House very soon," Trump said at a rally in Monroe, La. "I said, 'bring him now,' they said, 'He's on a mission.' I said, 'You gotta be kidding. Come on, give him couple of days rest, please,'" Trump added. The dog, Conan, was injured in the U.S. mission that resulted in the ISIS leader's death last month.

    BEIRUT -- Turkey captured the elder sister of the slain leader of the Islamic State group in northwestern Syria on Monday, according to a senior Turkish official, who called the arrest an intelligence "gold mine." Little is known about the sister of Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi. The Turkish official said the 65-year-old known as Rasmiya Awad is suspected of being affiliated with the extremist group. He did not elaborate. Awad was captured in a raid Monday evening on a trailer container she was living in with her family near the town of Azaz in Aleppo province. The area is part of...

    Seattle: “Strict Muslim” who admits to murdering four people in jihad is returned to face new charges NOV 3, 2019 5:00 PM BY ROBERT SPENCER Ali Muhammad Brown described himself as a “strict Muslim.” He said he had “no regrets” for the jihad murders. He “told investigators that his four male victims represented ‘a life for a life’ for ‘Iraq, Syria, Afghanistan, all these places where innocent lives are being taken every single day.’” This endless cycle of revenge is sanctioned by the Qur’an: “And We ordained for them therein a life for a life, an eye for an eye,...

    Americans have to face the painful reality that Arabs are, when judged by 21st century Western Standards, a crazy people. This is not meant as an insult. Early this year, the Iraqi parliament proposed a law that would permit men to marry 9 year old girls. The law had the support of a majority of parliament. The law would also permit men to beat up and rape their wives, and prevent women from leaving the house without the permission of the husband. These SOBS are supposed to be the allies of America in the fight against ISIS. The Shia regime...

    US President Donald Trump’s many critics insist he has no idea what he is doing in Syria. The assassination of Islamic State leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi over the weekend by US special forces showed this criticism is misplaced. Trump has a very good idea of what he is doing in Syria, not only regarding ISIS, but regarding the diverse competing actors on the ground. Regarding ISIS, the obvious lesson of the al-Baghdadi raid is that Trump’s critics’ claim that his withdrawal of US forces from Syria’s border with Turkey meant that he was going to allow ISIS to regenerate was...

It seems that Trump has learned some of the lessons of the past. Before World War I, the Chief of the German High Command, Field Marshall Alfred von Schlieffen, saw the looming French/English/Russian Military Alliance as the setting for a disastrous two-front war with 1) France/Great Britain to the West and 2) Tsarist Russia to the...
