Left Wing Oakland Radicals Worked With ISIS, New Book Reports

with one comment

Former Editor in Chief of the New York Times Magazine Edward Klein has a new book that will be released tomorrow October 30th. In All Out War: The Plot to Destroy TrumpKlein reveals an FBI investigation proving coordination between American college campus far left radicals and Islamic terrorists from groups such as ISIS and Al Qaeda.

What started as a secret investigation in to the “resistance” movement spurred by college socialists and anarchists in response to Trump’s political rise, led to the discovery of what the FBI is calling the “the greatest challenge to law enforcement since the Weather Underground and the Black Panther Party.”

“There is clearly overwhelming evidence that there are growing ties between U.S. radicals and the Islamic State, as well as several [ISIS] offshoots and splinter groups,’ stated the FBI field report, which was delivered to Acting Director Andrew McCabe on July 11, 2017, and which is being published for the first time in (his) new book All Out War: The Plot to Destroy Trump.

Last summer the FBI began investigating international radical groups such as ANTIFA and other anarchist groups. However, activity from organizations in Oakland piqued the interest of authorities.

Klein’s book details the revelations.

“Now that the bureau has determined they have followers in the radical U.S. resistance movement in the United States, it is clear there will be additional violence in the attacks on law enforcement and U.S. institutions, including banks.

“Ties between three key leaders of the Oakland group [names redacted] met in Hamburg with a leader of the AQAP [Al Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula] and the AQIM [Al Qaeda in the Islamic Maghreb],’ the report continued. ‘The leader from AQAP is an Egyptian-born male [name redacted] who is known to be in charge of finances and recruiting for the group.

“There is evidence from informants that he is helping the Oakland group acquire the weapons they are seeking, primarily bomb making equipment and toxic chemicals and gasses.

“One of the men from Oakland traveled to Syria to meet with ISIS; the purpose was for training in tactics, but was thought to be primarily a bonding visit to discuss possible massive disruptive attacks in the U.S.

“While in Hamburg, several of the Oakland-based criminals were photographed throwing Molotov cocktails and wielding iron bars, which have been their weapons of choice, though they are almost certainly on the verge of upping the caliber of their weaponry for use in the U.S.

“Despite having their faces covered by masks, they were positively identified.

“This group and their connections with the radical Islamic groups must be disrupted and destroyed.”

Klein also claims that under Barack Obama’s watch, anti-American groups were able to coordinate and foment insurrection because these groups were largely ignored by the FBI during his administration.

“The FBI is really playing catchup ball, because the Obama administration refused to give the bureau the resources it needed to effectively infiltrate and surveil the radical groups on college campuses,’ the source continued.

“Any talk of a connection between radical Islam—a phrase the Obama people wouldn’t even use—and American extremists was pretty much laughed off. [Former Attorney General] Loretta Lynch would have blown a gasket if she heard that the FBI was surveilling so-called college political organizations.

“All that has changed under the Trump administration. Everyone’s aware that the resistance movement, with its effort to get rid of Trump by any means necessary, has created fertile soil for ISIS and al Qaeda to establish a beachhead in America.”

In other words, the far left and radical Islam are united in their hate for the American way of life. They are willing to work together and to be violent to accomplish their goals.

This is nothing new. As mentioned in the FBI report, since the 1960s, radical liberal, anarchist, and socialist groups have regularly used violence as a means to their collective end; the destruction of the United States and implementation of communism or socialism.

The aforementioned group “Weather Underground” is probably the most well known left-wing domestic terrorism organization in the history of the United States. That group was founded by Bill Ayers. Ayers, alongside his girlfriend and several other colleagues, utilized homemade bombs to target American institutions of law enforcement. They successfully detonated several bombs at places such as the Pentagon, the U.S. Capitol, and a wide range of police stations. His group never killed anybody, but not for lack of trying. They wanted to place explosives at a Fort Dix Army dance, but were stopped by the feds. But, due to a legal misstep by the FBI, Ayers was never charged with domestic terrorism. In fact, Ayers is an unrepentant anti-American, Anti-capitalist. In 2000, he told the New York Times that he did not regret the violent actions his group took. “I don’t regret setting bombs…I don’t feel we did enough.”

If you are wondering what happened to his girlfriend that he co-founded Weather Underground with, well, she died during a bomb cooking experiment gone wrong. Ayers later married Bernadhine Dorn, who was also a member of the domestic terror group. Bill Ayers is also infamous for acting as quasi-mentor to President Barack Obama. Obama launched his political career from Ayers house in 1995.

In 2013, I had an opportunity to protest and speak with Bill Ayers after my college invited him to speak in an academic setting. Ayers now works as an educational reformer and  is a professor of education theory at the University of Illinois in Chicago. He was at my school to speak to our education department and education majors. Myself and several other Conservatives were rightfully outraged that our college had invited him in the first place. But rather than shout him down as current college students do to voices they disagree with, we printed flyers and passed out pamphlets informing students he was. We also gained a few hundred signatures to show our dissatisfaction. It was rather successful. I was somehow blessed with a largely conservative student body where I attended. But, this led to an opportunity to speak with the man.

I asked him if he had any remorse for his actions. Ayers did not. He even seemed adamant that he was morally correct to place the explosives. “The United States was illegally killings thousands of Vietnamese each week, what would you do in that situation,” I remember him telling me.

Ayers also told me that his goal was, and still is, the destruction of capitalism and the United States. But, as an activist, he realized he could be more effective in the educational realm. At the end our conversation, Ayers asked if there was a place to get coffee nearby. “Boy, I hate capitalism but love Starbucks,” he remarked.

This anecdote is important, because as Klein’s book shows, modern college left wing radicals are following in Ayers’ footsteps and are undoubtedly inspired by him. They are just as violent, just as committed, and unless are stopped by the FBI, will continue to try and fundamentally change the USA by whatever means necessary.

Michigan: Muslim mother who forced daughter to undergo FGM wants her ankle monitor removed, irritates her skin

Her daughter’s skin was irritated, too.

 

“Mother charged with forcing daughter to undergo female genital mutilation in first case of its kind in the US wants wants her ankle monitor removed because it irritates her skin,” by Regina F. Graham, Dailymail.com, October 26, 2017 (thanks to RN):

A Michigan mother charged with forcing her daughter to undergo genital mutilation wants her ankle monitor removed claiming that it irritates her skin, according to court documents filed in the case by her attorney on Tuesday.

The Oakland County mother, who has not been publicly named to protect the identity of her minor daughter, has requested for a judge to approve that the device to be removed from her ankle, the Detroit Free Press reported.

In the documents filed by her attorney, Brian Legghio, the woman argues that the ankle monitor ‘serves no practical purpose and there is no reason to continue wearing it for the next eight months.’

She added that the device ‘can never be removed — even while showering, bathing and sleeping,’ that it is ‘physically uncomfortable and causes irritation to the skin,’ and that it is ‘unnecessarily intrusive’.

Her attorney wrote: ‘It’s visual presence and it’s intermittent beeping requires (her) to explain to her 8-year-old and 5-year-old children why their mother must wear an electronic bracelet on her ankle.’

He stressed that his client had ‘no prior criminal record whatsoever’ and that she does not pose a threat to the community.

He described the woman as a stay-at-home mother who cares for her family daily while taking her children to school events and attending prayer at her local mosque.

Prosecutors have not commented on her request.

The mother’s case also involves eight defendants, including two doctors, a physician’s wife and four other mothers.

They are all accused of participating in subjecting young girls to genital mutilation as part of a religious practice within their Indian Muslim sect – the Dawoodi Bohra.

According to members of the religious group, the common age for the procedure to be performed on girls is seven.

Authorities and prosecutors believe that an estimated 100 girls had been subjected to the shocking procedure at a Livonia clinic over the last 12 years.

This is the first genital mutilation case in America after it came to light back in April when Dr. Jumana Nagarwala was indicted.

Nagarwala had worked as an emergency room physician at Henry Ford before she was terminated.

She allegedly performed the procedure on two Michigan girls and two Minnesota girls at the Livonia clinic where the owner, Dr. Fakuruddin Attar and his wife, Farida Attar, have also been charged in the case.

All of the defendants are members of the Dawoodi Bohra. The trial will begin in June for the case….

Cleveland Father Pleads Guilty to Killing Daughter

Jamal Mansour pleaded guilty to shooting his daughter to death, saying he felt she was disrespecting him.

Mansour, 64, of Cleveland, shot his youngest child, 27-year old Tahani, a pharmacist, once in the side of her face and again in back of her head as she slept in the family home.

The two continually argued about her messy room and her late nights. Tahami, the youngest of seven children, had a non-Muslim boyfriend whom she had kept a secret from her father, fearing the consequences of disclosing such information.

“When she was with him, she had to pretend like she was with other people. She was worried about what would happen if he found out,” said County Prosecutor Andrew Rogalski.

However, before the honor killing when her father was on a trip abroad, Tahani had not slept at home – information her father had found out.

The night of the shooting, Tahani had come home after midnight. The two had argued. During the confrontation, Tahani “brushed him off” and went to bed.

It was then that Mansour took a gun he took with him when he made large bank deposits for his business and went to Tahani’s room.

“If she doesn’t respect me, then she’ll respect this,” Jamal later told the police.

Mansour pleaded guilty to involuntary manslaughter and felonious assault and was sentenced 22 years in prison.

Based on statistics culled in 2015, there are an estimated 23-27 recorded honor killings in the United States annually. The Department of Justice says honor killings in the U.S. are a growing problem.

Mansour can be seen crying during the sentencing saying, asking for forgiveness and saying he wished he were the one dead:

Paul Ryan Ignores National Reciprocity Bill for 42nd Week

with one comment

Breitbart
October 27, 2017

It is October 27 and House Speaker Paul Ryan (R-WI) has just finished ignoring national concealed carry reciprocity for a 42nd consecutive week.

National reciprocity was introduced by Rep. Richard Hudson (R-NC) on January 3, 2017, and Ryan has remained mum on it ever since, with one exception. That one exception came in the wake of the June 14 Alexandria attack, when Ryan told Rep. Thomas Massie (R-KY) that “he didn’t think the time was right” for legislation revolving around reciprocity.

This is typical of a ruling class mentality. Ryan enjoys taxpayer-funded armed protection wherever he goes while the common man is forced to plan family vacations along routes where our nation’s patchwork of concealed carry laws will somehow afford him the ability to keep a handgun close at hand for defense of himself and his family.

If a common man with a concealed carry permit from Kentucky needs to travel I-64 to St. Louis, Missouri, he will have to do so unarmed because the route includes passage through Illinois, which refuses to recognize any concealed carry permit but its own. Or if a common man with a concealed carry permit from Arizona has to travel to surrounding states for work he can be armed for self-defense in New Mexico, Colorado, Utah, and Nevada, but he has to move throughout California unarmed because that state will not recognize any outside permits either.

Why should Second Amendment rights be null and void because someone crosses a state border?

Rep. Hudson’s bill fixes this mess by making a concealed carry license from one state valid in the other 49 states, just like a driver’s license. Moreover, Hudson’s bill had 212 co-sponsors by the end of September, making it appear that momentum was finally on the side of the Second Amendment.

The NRA tweeted:

But we are still waiting on Speaker Ryan, who has let national reciprocity languish for 42 consecutive weeks.

Missouri Judge Rules Law Requiring Women Meet with Doctor 3 Days Before Abortion Is Not Undue Burden

with one comment

October 24, 2017

A Missouri judge declined Monday to block a law requiring that abortion doctors meet with their patients three days prior to the procedure. Planned Parenthood’s two Missouri affiliates, along with the ACLU, challenged the law claiming it imposed an undue burden on women seeking an abortion since the same abortion doctor may not be able to see them three days after a consultation.

Jackson County Judge S. Margene Burnett said the requirement was “at best a moderate modification of the informed consent restraints already in place” and denied Planned Parenthood’s request for a temporary restraining order.

Before the law was in place any “qualified health professional” could advise the patient on risks, abortion methods, and medical factors 72 hours prior to the abortion. This law now specifies that the health professional must be the same doctor performing the procedure.

Judge Burnett also dismissed Planned Parenthood’s argument that the new law would especially burden patients because of the scarcity of abortion doctors in the state.

Burnett said the scarcity of physicians was not the state’s doing and the law “would not place a substantial obstacle in a woman’s decision to obtain an abortion.”

Aaron Samulcek, the interim president of Planned Parenthood Great Plains, said they would continue to fight the requirement.

“The harsh reality of today’s court ruling is that this law will force some women to wait weeks for an abortion, travel hundreds of miles, or lose access altogether,” Samulcek said in a statement.

Missouri Attorney General Josh Hawley, who was named in Planned Parenthood’s lawsuit, said he was “very pleased” with Monday’s ruling.

“SB5 enacts sensible regulations that protect the health of women in Missouri and we will continue to vigorously defend these,” he emphasized.

Dr. Martin Luther King Jr’s Niece: “Abortion Violates the Civil Rights of Unborn Children”

The niece of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. said today that she opposes abortion and believes it violates the civil rights of unborn children.

Alveda King is also taking the side of the Trump Administration in a battle with pro-abortion attorneys who are seeking to force the administration to facilitate an illegal immigrants abortion.

Yesterday, an appeals court has stopped a judge’s order issued the day before forcing the Trump Administration to facilitate an abortion for an illegal immigrant.

As LifeNews reported yesterday, a federal judge nominated by Barack Obama ordered the Trump Administration to allow an undocumented teenage girl in the state of Texas to have an abortion that could be funded partly at taxpayer expense. Judge Tanya Chutkan had ruled that the government must allow Jane Doe to get an abortion by Saturday to end the life of her 15-week-old unborn baby.

Yesterday, the U.S. Court of Appeals in Washington stayed Wednesday’s ruling in order to hold a hearing today on the merits of the case.

King says the government is right to protect the life of both mother and child.

“On October 19, 2017, a Judge orders the government to facilitate an abortion for a seventeen-year old illegal immigrant known as the “new Jane Roe;” with the ACLU representing the young mother. The Justice Department is seeking injunction to save life of baby. The shelter where the mother is housed has contacted a local pregnancy center and the grandmother of the baby to seek assistance for the mother and unborn child,” King explained.

The civil rights leader added: “Abortion is a civil wrong that violates the civil and human rights of unborn children; where is the lawyer for the baby?”

King said people need to remember the racial motivation behind the abortion industry that targets blacks and Latinos.

She explained: “Those in favor of the young mother having the abortion are proponents of an abortion agenda initiated by Margaret Sanger, a 20th century racist eugenicist who founded Planned Parenthood and is considered by some to be America’s “Mother of Abortion.” Sanger championed eugenics and racism in her day, going so far as be an advisor to the Klu-Klux-Klan, and to birth a Eugenics Movement which has resulted in the genocide of millions of blacks and other “undesirables.”

“In the 20th century we turned to Nonviolence as a key to this process. These principles of nonviolent conflict resolution and reconciliation are still helpful today: I learned these principles from my Uncle MLK, my father AD King, and grandfather Daddy King,” she concluded.

Vets Sue Drug Companies for Funding Anti-US Islamist Militia

with 2 comments

A group of U.S. military veterans and relatives of soldiers killed or wounded in Iraq filed suit against five pharmaceutical and medical equipment giants, accusing them of funding the Islamist  terrorist militia responsible for the deaths of hundreds of American soldiers in Iraq.

As reported by The Financial Times, the lawsuit names the parent companies and subsidiaries of AstraZeneca, General Electric, Johnson & Johnson, Pfizer and Roche Holding.

These companies stand accused of paying bribes to the Iraqi Ministry of Health to win contracts. The ministry was known to be controlled by the Mahdi Army, an extremely anti-American, Shiite terrorist militia backed Hezbollah, the Iranian-funded Lebanese terrorist organization.

The suit charges that money from these bribes was used to fund the militia – allowing them to buy weapons, train fighters and conduct logistic support.

“Defendants’ corrupt transactions aided and abetted Jaysh al-Mahdi’s terrorist operations against Americans in Iraq,” the lawsuit states.

The U.S. military suffered tremendous losses between 2005 and 2009 at the hands of the Mahdi Army. The lawsuit includes a 27-page itemized list of U.S. soldiers killed or injured at the hands of the terrorist militia, including claims of suffering by relatives.

The lawsuit documents the extent to which the U.S. knew the Mahdi Army controlled the ministry. Inside the Iraqi Health Ministry hung pictures of the Mahdi Army’s leader Muqtada al-Sadr. Banners reading “Death to America” were hung in the ministry and AK-47 assault rifles could readily be found in the Health minister’s office.

By the end of 2004, the office had become too dangerous for Americans to even be inside the building. As the lawsuit claims, the ministry “functioned more as a terrorist apparatus than a health organization.”

The suit claims the drug and medical equipment companies were required by the Mahdi Army to pay a bribe of 20 percent of each sale to the Health Ministry to obtain ministry contracts. The companies acquiesced by providing “free goods” with every sale, which amounted to millions of dollars in bribes per year.

The Mahdi Army was euphemistically called the “pill army” by U.S. officials in reference to the fact that al-Sadr was known to pay his fighters with drugs that they could resell for their wages.

In addition, the suit says the companies gave the ministry money for after-sales support, effectively a “slush fund” that went to pay off ministry officials – the same officials that supported the militia.

The companies are further charged with using the U.S. banking system to channel these payments to Iraq to pay the bribes.

“Most of the defendants have a documented history of paying bribes that supported terrorism under Saddam,” said Ryan Sparacino, one of the plaintiffs’ attorneys.

For example:

  • In 2011, Johnson and Johnson was accused of paying kickbacks to win contracts in Iraq as well as other countries. They settled a lawsuit against them for $70 million.
  • In 2010, General Electric was accused by the Securities and Exchange Commission of paying kickbacks to the Iraqi health ministry for contracts under the oil-for-food program. GE paid more than $23 million to settle that suit.

It’s A Trap: Republicans Are Open To Working With Democrats To Ban Bump Stocks

There’s that scene in Star Wars Episode VI when the Rebel Alliance finds itself between the Death Star and the Imperial Fleet to which Admiral Ackbar shouts, “It’s a trap!” It’s a line used  heavily in pop culture—and that’s all I can say to the Republican Party as they consider joining Democrats to ban “bump stocks.”

The device is used to increase the rate of fire of a semi-automatic weapon. It’s not the same as automatic—and no, it doesn’t convert a semiautomatic system into an automatic one. That falsehood surely made its rounds yesterday. At least some outlets were somewhat more accurate in their descriptions in that bump stocks mimic automatic fire, but I digress. It merely uses the recoil as a means to increase the rate of fire.

Twelve of the 23 firearms that Las Vegas shooter Stephen Paddock brought into his suite in the Mandalay Bay hotel had a bump stock.  Paddock used his 32nd floor room as a vantage point to open fire on the 22,000 concertgoers who were attending the final night of the Route 91 Harvest music festival. He killed 58 people and wounded close to 500 more; police revised the number down to 489 people, 317 of which have been discharged from medical centers. Paddock killed himself before authorities breached his room.

Now, the GOP is considering partnering up with Democrats to ban bump stocks (via NYT):

For a generation, Republicans in Congress — often joined by conservative Democrats — have bottled up gun legislation, even as the carnage of mass shootings grew ever more gruesome and the weaponry ever more deadly. A decade ago, they blocked efforts to limit the size of magazines after the massacre at Virginia Tech. Five years later, Republican leaders thwarted bipartisan legislation to expand background checks of gun purchasers after the mass shooting at an elementary school in Newtown, Conn.

Last year, in the wake of the Orlando nightclub massacre, they blocked legislation to stop gun sales to buyers on terrorism watch lists.

But in this week’s massacre in Las Vegas, lawmakers in both parties may have found the part of the weapons trade that few could countenance: previously obscure gun conversion kits, called “bump stocks,” that turn semiautomatic weapons into weapons capable of firing in long, deadly bursts.

“I own a lot of guns, and as a hunter and sportsman, I think that’s our right as Americans, but I don’t understand the use of this bump stock,” Senator John Cornyn of Texas, the No. 2 Republican in the Senate, said, adding, “It seems like it’s an obvious area we ought to explore and see if it’s something Congress needs to act on.”

[…]

Other Republican senators, including Lindsey Graham of South Carolina, Orrin G. Hatch of Utah and Marco Rubio of Florida, said they would be open to considering legislation on bump stocks.

“We certainly want to learn more details on what occurred in Las Vegas,” Mr. Rubio said, “and if there are vulnerabilities in federal law that we should be addressing to prevent such attacks in the future, we would always be open to that.”

In the House, Representative Carlos Curbelo, Republican of Florida, said he was drafting bipartisan legislation banning the conversion kits. Representative Mark Meadows, the head of the conservative Freedom Caucus, also said he would be open to considering a bill, while Representative Bill Flores, Republican of Texas, called for an outright ban.

“I think they should be banned,” Mr. Flores told the newspaper The Hill. “There’s no reason for a typical gun owner to own anything that converts a semiautomatic to something that behaves like an automatic.”

The Hill added that Democrats are pleading with President Trump to sit down with them on gun control:

Trump’s history has not been overlooked by the Democrats, who are already encouraged by a pair of recent agreements on government spending and immigration –– the first finalized, the second tentative –– between the president and Democratic leaders on Capitol Hill.

Hoping to build on that bipartisan cooperation, a group of almost 100 House Democrats sent a letter to Trump Wednesday urging the president to join their effort to combat the gun-violence plague that was highlighted so tragically Sunday in Las Vegas.

Behind Rep. Mike Thompson (D-Calif.), head of the Democrats’ gun-violence prevention task force, the lawmakers are practically pleading with Trump to sit down with them in search of reforms that could break the barriers erected by GOP leaders in Congress.

“You have the power to make real change in America and protect our communities from the senseless gun violence like we saw in Las Vegas. Together, we can find common ground that respects and supports the 2nd Amendment while keeping guns out of the hands of people who should not have them –– criminals and the dangerously mentally ill,” the Democrats wrote.

“We are reaching out to you, please: join us in the fight to end gun violence.”

We all know the drill here: you give a Democrat an inch and they take several hundred miles. Bump stocks are banned, but what about so-called high-capacity magazines? Why not military-looking rifles? Why not certain types of ammunition? Why not placing limits on how many guns you can buy? Why not a ban on firearms? This is the road we’re going to go down with these people. We all see their allies on the anti-gun Left; they want to end gun ownership. They want to gut the Second Amendment and put our Constitution through the shredder. Bump stocks are mainly used for recreational shooting and have been—until this incident—rarely used in gun crimes. Mass shootings are still rare and are not the majority of gun crimes in America. Not even close. Background checks wouldn’t have stopped Paddock either. There’s talk from the Left about the cumulative effect of anti-gun legislation having an impact on reducing gun violence. That’s pure crap and bad policy. It’s a fancy way of saying it won’t do anything, but we can score political points for having done something…with consequences that likely weren’t considered when pondering such shoddy gun legislation. FiveThirtyEight has concluded that focusing only on mass shootings is a bad compass on policy navigation. They’re right. The data crunching site has selected numerous, smaller scale, and more targeted ways of combating gun crime, but the Left won’t like it because it doesn’t chip away at gun rights.

There is no downside whatsoever to not passing, or even blocking, more redundant gun control lawsWorking with Democrats on gun policy is a very dangerous game; Republicans should avoid working with them altogether on this issue. We all know what their end goal is and it’s not just expanded background checks.

Trey Gowdy Responds to New Calls For Gun Control: Prove to Me the Laws We Have Are Being Fully Enforced, Then We’ll Talk

As the drum beat for new gun control laws continues to get louder on Capitol Hill, former prosecutor and Chairman of the House Oversight Committee Trey Gowdy is taking a different approach to the situation.

During an interview with Fox News Dana Perino this week, Gowdy called on gun control proponents to verify that the slew of laws already on the books are being fully enforced before the government piles on new legislation or regulation.

“We already have controls on what kind of guns you can have, where you can have them, when you can use them and what individuals can possess even a single bullet. So the question to me is whether or not current controls are adequate and there are two fundamental questions that you should put your finger on,” Gowdy said. “What law had it existed at the time would have prevented this mass killing or another mass killing. What law, but for its lack of implementation could have prevented this. That’s one question. The other question is, among all the panoply of current gun laws, how are we doing enfocing them?”

Gowdy added that DOJ statistics show few prosecutions for a number of gun laws already on the books.

“I was really underwhelmed at the level of prosecution over the last eight years,” Gowdy said.

 

 

Under the Obama administration, prosecutions of those who violated federal gun laws plummeted by 25 percent. Prosecutions of these crimes are up under the direction of Attorney General Jeff Sessions.
