Watch James O’Keefe Demonstrate How Easy It Is For ISIS To Cross Our Northern Border

As we approach the 13th anniversary of the 9/11 attacks – with terror alerts flashing red everywhere but at the Departments of Justice and Homeland Security – Project Veritas’ James O’Keefe brings us the unsettling results of his latest investigation.

Last month I crossed the border dressed as Osama bin Laden. Today we released a follow-up investigation.

It was so easy to cross into the United States from Mexico, we began asking questions about the Northern border. After all, British intelligence believes more than 500 British citizens have joined ISIS, and British citizens can enter Canada without a visa.

Frankly, we were disheartened by what we found.

 

Over and over again Obama has demonstrated that he is more interested in protecting Muslims from being “profiled” than he is in keeping the American people safe.

Here’s the tally of terror attacks on US soil that have taken place since Obama took office.

May 2009, Binghamton NY: N.Y. Shooting Massacre
June 2009, Little Rock, AR: Military Recruiting Center Shooting
November 2009, Fort Hood, TX:Fort Hood Gunman Who Killed 12, Wounded 30 Survived Gun Battle
December 2009, Detroit, MI: Panty-bomber, Northwest Airlines Flight 253

March 4, 2010: John Patrick Bedell, a Muslim convert, shot and wounded two Pentagon police in Arlington County, Va.

May 2010, NYC: Faisal Shahzad, Times Square Attack
September 2012: Benghazi terror attack on US Consulate in Libya
April 2013: The Boston Marathon bombing

This represents quite an uptick since Bush left office. What changed?

As blogger AJ Strata noted in April of 2010, the Obama Administration Confused national defense and criminal defense.

When President Obama was candidate Obama, his national security team was clear that they were going to roll back the Bush hair-trigger defenses and do things very differently. They were adamant to prove we were not really at war, and that we could fight the bloody-mad Jihadists using courtrooms and prosecutors. Their naivete knew no bounds.

The Obama administration decided early on that  they knew enough about the threat to adjust Bush’s early warning network to be much less intrusive on suspects. Strata noted that “they were arrogantly wrong. Their changes introduced openings that al Qaeda and its allies exploited with surreal success.”

Other than enacting more intrusive policies on everyday Americans, it doesn’t look like the administration has changed it’s national security posture at all,  since then.

Multiple terrorist groups are determined to hit us again on 9/11/2014 and the Obama administration hasn’t even bothered to raise the threat level. Instead, we’re going to get another worthless  Obama speech on 9/10.

Steve Emerson: Holder DOJ ‘Handcuffed’ the FBI From Investigating Islamic Extremism In US (Video)

Steve Emerson of the Investigative Project on Terrorism  said on Justice With Jeanine Pirro, Saturday night,  that there are now 300-400 American Volunteers fighting for ISIS. (The US State Dept. says there are only 12. Defense Sec. Hagel says about 100,  and Mike Rogers, the chairman of the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence, says hundreds.)

He told Pirro, “they can return to the United States any time they want. (Currently, there is no policy in place to revoke passports of Jihadists, but Republicans in Congress are working on legislation to address that.)

The FBI has been handcuffed in terms of investigating religious extremists in mosques as a result of guidelines put out by the Attorney General earlier, this year.” He added,  “there is a definite problem in investigating those militants in the United States who are either recruiting for ISIS or have returned from Syria or Iraq having fought for ISIS, ready to carry out freelance or directed terrorist attacks on behalf of ISIS against the United States.

Asked by Pirro to elaborate, Emerson said, “the Department of Justice has put out guidelines that restricted the FBI and other other law enforcement agencies from using religious actors in identifying National Security threats to the United States…”

His portion of the video begins 5:00 in:

According to The Center For Security Policy, back in January, the DOJ was poised to  “prohibit religious profiling in terror cases,”  completely blinding federal law enforcement to the threat from Islamic extremism.

Already, the department has forced the FBI to bleach references to “Islam” and “jihad” from its counterterrorism training materials. It’s also made it harder for agents to infiltrate radical mosques.

But Attorney General Eric Holder reportedly now wants to make it illegal for agents to even consider religion in their investigations.

Democrats on the Hill are cheering the changes, along with the ACLU and radical Muslim Brotherhood front groups, who have all lobbied the administration for them. The Council on American-Islamic Relations, which has seen several of its officials jailed on terror-related charges, calls it “a step in the right direction.”

Appearing before the Democrat-controlled Senate Judiciary Committee in 2012, CAIR demanded the administration remove religion as a factor in terrorism investigations, even though just four years earlier Justice had named CAIR an unindicted terrorist co-conspirator.

The Islamic Society of North America, another designated co-conspirator, hailed the move as a civil-rights victory worthy of praise from “Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.”

The timing couldn’t be worse. Experts say that if anything, the U.S. should be expanding its terrorist profile to include radical Muslim women along with men. Russian intelligence warns female suicide bombers are threatening next month’s Winter Olympics.

The FBI missed the Boston Marathon bombings because it failed to focus on radicalized local Muslims. The only way law enforcement can effectively head off future attacks — including possibly the upcoming Super Bowl in New Jersey — is by gathering predictive intelligence in the Muslim community — namely, inside mosques.

Holder cut off these investigative avenues for the FBI, “as well as for border agents charged with protecting the nation from Islamic extremists at airports and land crossings.”

Bill Gertz, Washington Free Beacon:FBI National Domestic Threat Assessment Omits Islamist Terrorism: Internal report labels white supremacists, black separatists, militias, abortion extremists main domestic extremists…

Surreal…

The FBI’s most recent national threat assessment for domestic terrorism makes no reference to Islamist terror threats, despite last year’s Boston Marathon bombing and the 2009 Fort Hood shooting—both carried out by radical Muslim Americans.

Instead, the internal FBI intelligence report concluded in its 2013 assessment published this month that the threat to U.S. internal security from extremists is limited to attacks and activities by eight types of domestic extremist movements—none motivated by radical Islam.

They include anti-government militia groups and white supremacy extremists, along with “sovereign citizen” nationalists, and anarchists. Other domestic threat groups outlined by the FBI assessment include violent animal rights and environmentalist extremists, black separatists, anti- and pro-abortion activists, and Puerto Rican nationalists.

Apparently The Ricin Terrorist Is A Democrat

Oooooh - Ouch.

kc

MSNBC and CNN hardest hit.

Some conservative bloggers actually I.D.’d  the guy before his arrest was made known. The guy had left a painfully obvious internet trail.

Blogging buddy, Lady Libertyexplains:

Liberty speaks, out of curiosity, started this morning started searching one of the key phrases said to be in the letters as reported by FOX News:

An FBI bulletin obtained by Fox News said the letter sent to Obama is still being screened, though it initially tested positive.

The bulletin said both letters included the phrase: “To see a wrong and not expose it, is to become a silent partner to its continuance.”

Both were signed, “I am KC and I approve this message.”

Liberty Speaks was able to find a post tied to a Chiropractor practice called Baker Chiropractic which featured one of the key phrases above:

“To see a wrong and not expose it, is to become a silent partner to its continuance.”
– Dr John Raymond Baker

A link on this post led to another post in which Kevin Curtis, “Elvisguy’ (yes, he’s an Elvis impersonator) commented.

“Mr. Kirwan, I applaud you and anyone else out there who has the courage to step up to the plate with no fear of retaliation from those with something to lose by the threat that those who speak out and take action may cause…know what I mean? Kevin Curtis, Mississippi Activist”

So Liberty Speaks decided to Google Kevin Curtis, ‘Elvisguy’ and came up with his Facebook page which turned out to be a goldmine..

On that page, several posts caught the eye, one in particular was promoting a friend for mayor and included references to both President Obama and Senator Wicker. The post included the phrase:

“This is KC and I approve this message” (link to page)

Also on the About tab for Curtis, we find the other phrase from the Ricin letters:

“To see a wrong and not expose it,
is to become a silent partner to its continuance.”

Game over. Enough said.

 ….While we did not get a screen shot of the above quotes, we did grab some others:

Right,  Paul Kevin Curtis was a big supporter of the Democrat candidate for Mayor, Jason Shelton, who seems like a decent fellow. It’s not his fault one of his supporters is a psychopath.

The Blaze: MIND-BOGGLING DETAILS EMERGE ABOUT RICIN LETTER SUSPECT: ‘I’M ON THE HIDDEN FRONT LINES OF A SECRET WAR’

UPDATE:

AP NEWSBREAK: RICIN SUSPECT RELEASED FROM JAIL:

The Mississippi man charged with sending poisoned letters to President Barack Obama, a U.S. senator and a state judge was released from jail on Tuesday, federal official said, though the reason for the release wasn’t immediately clear.

Jeff Woodfin, chief deputy with the U.S. Marshals Service in Oxford, Miss., said Paul Kevin Curtis has been released from custody. Woodfin said he doesn’t know if there were any conditions on the release.

The development comes hours after officials canceled a detention and preliminary hearing without explaining the reason for the change.

His lawyer Christi McCoy, who has been pushing for the charges to be dropped, said in a text message Tuesday that she could only confirm that her client has been released.

“I can tell you he is with his family,” McCoy said.

McCoy has said that there is a news conference scheduled for 5 p.m. CDT with federal authorities and defense attorneys.

Curtis was arrested last Wednesday at his house in Corinth, Miss., and charged with sending ricin-laced letters to Obama, Sen. Roger Wicker and a Lee County, Miss., judge.

Tuesday’s hearing in federal court was canceled about 90 minutes after it was supposed to begin. Lawyers spent that time conferring with the judge. Later, Curtis and family members were escorted into a meeting room with his lawyers, followed by a probation officer.

On Monday, FBI Agent Brandon Grant testified that Friday searches of Curtis’ vehicle and house in Corinth, Miss., found no ricin, ingredients for the poison, or devices used to make it. A search of Curtis’ computers found no evidence he researched making ricin.

It’s now thought that Curtis was framed.

WA Moonbat Cult Leader JZ Knight’s Anti-Catholic Rants Prompt Calls for Democrats to Return Campaign Cash (Video)

Politics can get really weird on the left coast, just ask Zombie, who recently covered the “Rally for Nudity,” that took place in the city’s Castro District on Saturday, October 20. Out of all the serious issues out there that people should be concerned about – the crushing debt, government corruption, Fast and Furious, Benghazi – this bunch chooses to protest over public nudity laws.  Click on the link and remind yourself that these are the very same people who call conservatives “right wing wackos”.

We find the same dynamic in Yelm, Washington, where we have a far-left moonbat cult leader who gives generously to the Washington State Democrat Party, the Democrat National Committee, the Democrat candidates for state and local office, and Obama, and rails against the Catholic church, Jews, and gays. She tells her deluded cult-followers that Republicans are  “low info voters”.

The NW Daily Marker reported:

Democrats on the bottom of the ticket in Washington state all the way to the very top are caught in a pickle. Stand against religious bigotry or give back some $60,000 in state campaign cash contributed by world-famous spiritual channeler JZ Knight after videos showing Knight preaching hatred of Catholics became public.

In a story that may become a national news story as soon as tomorrow morning, Knight is seen and heard on video to let loose a profanity-strewn rant against Catholics and has been a frequent and generous contributor to Democrats here in Washington and at the national level. Knight’s contributions to Democrat at all levels total more than $120,000 for the current election cycle.

As of Tuesday, Democrats are deciding to take Knight’s money and run, an equivocation that could produce significant controversy among swing voters just as many are marking their ballots to decide a very close election.

The video evidence of Knight’s tirades are difficult to watch.

“F— you, you Catholics!” Knight bellows over cheers from her audience.

“We will come on you in a terror,” Knight growls in another cut. “We will bring… St. Peter’s temple down and we will swallow it in the sea.” (“St. Peter’s temple” is a reference to the Catholic church itself.)

The entirety of hateful language used by Knight defied redaction to meet our standards for publication. For the full context, you will have to brace yourself and view the videos. We warn you use discretion when viewing these where the general public and especially small children may be present. It’s very rough stuff.

 Thurston County Commissioner Sandra Romero is featured in the first video receiving Knight’s blessing of her 2012 re-election bid. You can watch a second video at the NW Daily Marker.

Keep in mind, Knight is supposed to be “channeling” an entity named Ramtha of the lost land of “Lemuria”  (no longer considered a valid scientific hypothesis) who’s 35,000 years old and apparently has it in for Catholics, Jews and gays.

Extreme language warning:

Washington State Republican Party Chairman Kirby Wilbur issued a sharply-worded public request to Washington State Democratic Party Chairman Dwight Pelzto return contributions Knight has given to them in this election cycle.

“This video that was recently posted online is nothing short of repulsive,” Wilbur said in a statement released Monday. “I am personally disgusted by the sickening things uttered by Knight on the tape. She is anti-Catholic, anti-Semitic, homophobic, vulgar and profane. She donated $50,000 to the State Democratic Party this year and I am asking Chairman Dwight Pelz to return that donation.”

The strongest response from Democrats noted so far has been from State Democratic Party spokesman Benton Strong, but it doesn’t indicate much willingness to see things Wilbur’s way. From The Olympian’s Tuesday online edition:

Democratic Party spokesman Benton Strong distanced the party from Knight’s comments, but said Democrats would not give back the money.

The public relations spokesman for the cult says that the offending quotes were “taken out of context.”.

That seems to happen to Democrats, a lot.

Video: Why Chicago Teachers are Striking

Why are They Striking? – Created by Ben Howe for the

Via CNN: The official reasons they’re striking:

Q. What’s the sticking point?

A. Among the major issues, the teachers are negotiating over the length of the school day, objecting to their evaluations being tied to performance and fretting about potential job losses.

Q. How would the length of school days change?

A. Elementary students would gain 75 minutes to create a seven-hour school day. High school students would gain 30 minutes to create a seven-and-a-half-hour school day. Teachers wants additional .money to teach the additional hours.

They are also asking for a hefty 30% pay raise in a city where only 15 percent of fourth graders are proficient in reading, and only 56 percent actually graduate from high school:

Some facts you may not have seen (unless, of course, you’ve been reading the Foundry): the average Chicago teacher makes $71,000 a year before benefits. That’s $24,000 more than the average Chicago resident, and second only to New York City in teachers’ salaries.

BTW, The Senate Did Too Conduct Business During Pro-Forma Session

http://townhall.com/political-cartoons/natebeeler

Dan Pfeiffer: January 4, 2012:

 The Senate has effectively been in recess for weeks, and is expected to remain in recess for weeks.  In an overt attempt to prevent the President from exercising his authority during this period, Republican Senators insisted on using a gimmick called “pro forma” sessions, which are sessions during which no Senate business is conducted and instead one or two Senators simply gavel in and out of session in a matter of seconds.

Jay Carney, Jan 5, 2012:

I defy you to find anything like a quarum – anything like even enough people to fill this room,   You might find them in very warm places, or snowy places having fundraisers.

No Senate business, eh? They all flew off  to “warm places having fundraisers”… (sound like anyone we know?)

Hans Von Spakovsky for PJ Tatler, reports:

…a simple review of the Congressional Record (“CR”) shows that claim to be categorically false.

Most senators left D.C. on Dec. 17 after scheduling pro forma sessions for December and January.  The CR for Dec. 17 shows that Sen. Ron Wyden (D-OR) received unanimous consent to schedule Dec. 23 as a pro forma session.

The CR for Dec. 23 shows that Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid specifically asked for unanimous consent for H.R. 3765 so “that if the House passes and sends to the Senate a bill which is identical to the text extension of the reduced payroll tax, unemployment insurance, TANF, and the Medicare payment fix, the bill be considered read three times and passed.”

In that pro forma session, Reid received unanimous consent and the two-month extension of the payroll tax break that had caused such a political commotion in Washington was considered read and passed in the Senate after the House acted. That’s not a “gimmick.” That’s legislating.

That same CR for the Dec. 23 pro forma session records a series of other business actions taken by the Senate.  The President pro tempore signed several enrolled bills.  Other senators were designated as members of a conference committee to negotiate with the House over disagreements to H.R. 3630.   The minority leader even made appointments  to the United States-China Economic and Security Review Commission, pursuant to 22 U.S.C. § 7002.

Contrary to White House assertions, the Senate unquestionably conducted actual business during at least one of its supposedly pro forma sessions.  This simple fact makes President Obama’s actions even more indefensible.

Rest here.
