1…………> Islamic State: Dormant Cancer(Video)
Despite current “politically correct” headlines about the “complete destruction” of the “Islamic State of Levant” in Syria and Iraq, the jihadist group has found roots in Africa, Philippines and Asia, still presenting a real and imminent danger to the civilized world.
2…………> 2,232 Pages of Madness: Trump’s Budget
With champagne bottles popping, smiles all around and the sweet scent of freshly printed dollar bills about to flood the pockets of defense contractors who will be paid to build two “Gerald Ford” like carriers in a single year, instead of one, Congressional leaders led by Paul “Romney Jr.” Ryan, Mitch “Harry’s Twin” McConnell and Charles “I cried tears for the Muslims” Schumer, are finalizing a sweeping, monstrous $1.3 trillion budget bill that substantially boosts military and domestic spending but deprives President Donald Trump some of his border wall money and takes only incremental steps to address gun violence.
Talks continued into Wednesday evening before the 2,232-page text was finally released.
“No bill of this size is perfect,” Ryan said. “But this legislation addresses important priorities and makes us stronger at home and abroad.”
Really Paul? The deficits are about to top Obama’s 1 trillion for the next three years, the Chinese are switching oil futures to yuan backed SDR instead of US dollar, and the National debt is already 21 trillion dollars.
That “financial outrage” has drawn opposition from some fiscal conservatives and could make passage a potentially tricky process.
“It’s a good thing we have Republican control of Congress or the Democrats might bust the budget caps, fund planned parenthood, and Obamacare, and sneak gun control without due process into an Omni … wait, what?” Sen Rand Paul tweeted.
3…………> Mans’s Inspiration: IS
Erick Jamal Hendricks, 37, of Charlotte, North Carolina, was convicted today by a jury in Akron, Ohio, of attempting and conspiring to provide material support to the Islamic State of Iraq and al-Sham (ISIS), a designated foreign terrorist organization.
“Erick Jamal Hendricks represents the significant online ISIS threat that we face daily – a US citizen that becomes radicalized online and attempts to recruit and train individuals to commit jihad, all while on American soil,” said Special Agent in Charge Anthony. “The FBI urges the public to report information regarding individuals pledging their allegiance to ISIS or other identified terrorist groups. The FBI is pleased that Hendricks was stopped before he was successful and now will spend a significant amount of time behind bars.”
According to court documents and trial testimony, Hendricks tried to recruit people to train together and conduct terrorist attacks in the United States on behalf of ISIS, including Amir Al-Ghazi who was arrested after attempting to purchase an AK-47 assault rifle and ammunition, and “brothers” Elton Simpson and Nadir Hamid Soofi who became part of an organized terrorist attack.
4…………> Fentanyl Bust: Ohio
Two men and a woman from Texas are in custody Wednesday after authorities seized a package of fentanyl destined for Ohio.
“Fentanyl is a dangerous synthetic opioid with deadly consequences for users and those in law enforcement,” said HSI Detroit Special Agent in Charge Steve Francis. “This significant seizure clearly demonstrates HSI’s resolve to combatting the ongoing epidemic affecting Ohio, which we redoubled last week by pledging increased resources in the state.”
The seizure comes days after ICE and Ohio officials announced that HSI special agents had trained more than 300 law enforcement personnel in the state on “Darknet” and virtual currency, which is increasingly how synthetic opioids are purchased.
“The fentanyl seized last night is enough to kill everyone in Toledo several times over,” said U.S. Attorney for the Northern District of Ohio Justin Herdman. “This is a great example of law enforcement working together to make our community safer.”
5………..> An International Assassin: Canada
Amor M. Ftouhi, 50, of Montreal, Canada, who was previously indicted in July 2017, for charges relating to an attack on a Bishop Airport officer in Flint, Michigan, was charged today with an additional offense of committing an act of terrorism transcending national boundaries.
According to court records, Mr. Ftouhi entered the United States from Canada for the purpose of killing government personnel in the United States. Before entering the United States on June 16, 2017, while in Canada, Mr. Ftouhi conducted online research of American gun laws and for gun shows in Michigan. Mr. Ftouhi subsequently traveled to Michigan where he was unsuccessful in purchasing a gun and purchased a knife instead. On June 20, 2017, Mr. Ftouhi walked up to the victim, who is a lieutenant with the Bishop Airport Authority and was in full uniform, and stabbed the police officer in the neck with a knife. Mr. Ftouhi referenced killings in Syria, Iraq, and Afghanistan, and yelled “Allahu Akbar.” After his arrest, Mr. Ftouhi told law enforcement that he was a “soldier of Allah” and subscribed to the ideology of al-Qaeda and Usama bin Laden.
