I don’t always post about stories that are getting widespread attention, but figured I better post this one because there are a few too many competing news items these days that might be distracting you.
This is just a reminder that Islamic terrorism is still a scourge on the west.
Immediately the media is attempting to urge everyone to move along and pay no attention to another atrocity as three human beings are murdered by yet another fake Muslim ‘refugee’ who had been ‘welcomed’ into the UK.
If you want to catch up on the story, the best place to do it is at Jihad Watch.
Robert Spencer was on it immediately with this post(with a little context!),
“When you meet the unbelievers, strike the necks” (Qur’an 47:4).
UK: Muslim stabs random people in the neck, three feared dead, two more in critical condition, “terror-related”
You’ve probably seen the news, but I wanted to be sure it was in my archives and it fits with other news I have to share this morning. Invasion of Europe news…..
From Breitbart(hat tip: Joanne, others):
Three Syrian migrants are currently on trial in Hamburg for being members of a terrorist cell and one of the men has admitted that the Islamic State terror organisation sent him to Germany telling him to disguise himself as a refugee.
The three Syrians, aged between 19 and 27, came to Germany during the migrant crisis in 2015and were arrested in September of 2016 at asylum homes in Ahrensburg, Großhansdorf and Reinbek near Hamburg, Suddeutsche Zeitung reports.
For the last eight months, the judges in the court have tried to determine whether or not the men were sent by the Islamic State, or whether they were radicalised independently.
The eldest defendant, 27-year-old Mohamed A., confirmed to the judge that he had been commanded by the Islamic State terror group to infiltrate the wave of refugees and wait in Germany for further instructions.
The 27-year-old said that he trained with the terror group in its former capital of Raqqa for three months with four different weapons before heading to Europe. An Islamic State member also gave him a forged passport along with a sum of $1,500.
Clearly! the Christian, Jewish and secular federal resettlement agencies do not want extra vetting for Muslims from terror-producing countries. Oh no!
The Homeland Security Department announced Monday that it was lifting the outright ban on refugees from these eleven countries, but certain individuals would undergo greater scrutiny before they would be admitted to the US for you to take care of with your tax dollars.
Here is Reuters:
WASHINGTON (Reuters) – The United States will resume admissions for refugees from 11 countries identified as presenting a high security risk, but with extra vetting for these mostly Middle Eastern and African nations, senior U.S. officials said on Monday.
The changes came after a 90-day review of refugee admissions from Egypt, Iran, Iraq, Libya, Mali, North Korea, Somalia, South Sudan, Sudan, Syria and Yemen by the State Department, Department of Homeland Security and intelligence agencies. [Note that Muslims from Pakistan, Afghanistan and Burma never were slowed in their flow to your towns.—-ed]
The new rules are the latest changes to the U.S. refugee program made by the administration of President Donald Trump to address what it sees as national security issues.
Some of the administration’s actions, including an executive order to temporarily ban all refugees, have sparked lengthy court battles. Refugee advocates*** have said they see the administration’s actions as intended to reduce the number of refugees, particularly those from Muslim countries.
“This administration disproportionally targets Muslims,” said Hans Van de Weerd, a senior official at the International Rescue Committee. “Today’s announcement does not change this for the better.”
And, Hans (is he a US citizen?) is working against the President to be sure that American towns ‘welcome’ more Muslims. What else can you conclude? Dear readers, Extra vetting is something to cheer about, but remember it is not permanent. When Donald Trump leaves the White House in three or seven years, everything can revert back to the free-for-all we witnessed in the Obama years—unless Congress makes changes to the law!
***These are the primary “refugee advocates.” They are also the federally funded resettlement agencies you pay to act as community political activists secretively placing refugees in your towns and cities.
The number in parenthesis is the portion of their budget that you involuntarily pay! The Washington Post, Reuters, LA Timesand the New York Times will never tell you about their conflicts of interest!
Wouldn’t it be refreshing to see some big media outfit actually take a serious look at the structure/finances of the refugee industry (heck! I could retire!). Hey! Yeganeh! How about you?
One last thing, a wise fellow once told me that you must repeat information at least seven times before people will hear it. So if, as a regular student of the US Refugee Admissions Program, you are sick of hearing this about the contractors, know that rather than seven times, I’m working on 700 times!
You don’t need me to give you that news, but let’s first talk about the Diversity Visa Lottery (aka Green card lottery) which we have discussed often on these pages over the previous ten years. It is one more LEGAL immigration program that must go!
(Here is my archiveon the program. And, I’ll say it again. There are many possible themes for ‘amateur’ investigative bloggers that I’ve been nagging some of you to jump in to over the years including the Diversity Visa Lottery, Temporary Protected Status and immigrant food stamp and medicaid fraud. There is a desperate need for individual bloggers focusing solely on those topics and more every day because we cannot count on the mainstream media to inform us!)
Here is a good summaryabout Trump and the Diversity Visa Lottery in the wake of this latest Islamic terrorist attack from John Binder at Breitbart.
President Trump could shut this down in a heartbeat with an Executive Order if he so chose. Or, at minimum, add Uzbekistan to the list of countries requiring additional screening.
The suspected foreign national terrorist behind the New York City attack that has left at least eight individuals dead came to the United States years ago through the Diversity Visa Lottery, a program that President Trump and pro-American immigration reformers have demanded an end to.
According to ABC New York, 29-year-old Sayfullo Saipov — the man who allegedly mowed down pedestrians in the Tribeca neighborhood of New York City — entered the U.S. in 2010 from Uzbekistan under the Diversity Visa Lottery before obtaining a Green Card.
Just think about this! We haven’t enough diversity in America according to Congress (which has never been able to kill the program) so every year we bring in 50,000 more including from countries that hate us!
The Diversity Visa Lottery gives out 50,000 visas every year to foreign nationals from a multitude of countries, including those with known terrorist problems – such as Afghanistan, Algeria, Egypt, Iraq, Lebanon, Libya, Nigeria, Saudi Arabia, Somalia, Syria, Trinidad and Tobago, Venezuela, Yemen, and Uzbekistan.
Trump, though, along with Sen. Tom Cotton (R-AR) and Sen. David Perdue (R-GA), has been calling for an end to the Diversity Visa Lottery program since August. Under the RAISE Act, introduced in February and endorsed by Trump in August, the Diversity Visa Lottery would be eliminated altogether.
The Trump administration took eliminating the Diversity Visa Lottery even more seriously earlier this month when they introduced the president’s immigration priorities, which like the RAISE Act called for the elimination of the program.
We do not need to wait for the RAISE Act to kill the Diversity Visa Lottery!
(BTW, I’m not a big fan of the RAISE Act because it doesn’t do enough to reform the UN/US Refugee Admissions Program. Let’s not dither around, let’s have a stand alone bill to kill the Diversity Visa Lottery right now.)
Now let’s talk about Uzbeks who have arrived LEGALLY in the US including through the Refugee Admissions Program.
The poster boy for Uzbek Islamic terrorist refugees is Fazliddin Kurbanov who was convicted of conspiracy to commit terrorism in Idaho in 2015. See here.
And, if you had any doubts about how bad he is, he attempted to kill the California prison warden shortly after arriving to serve his 25-year sentence.
For all of the refugee contractors and their groupies busily spreading propaganda that refugees never commit crimes, take note of Muslim Fazliddin Kurbanov who was already in prison, convicted on terrorism charges, and then tried to kill the prison warden a year ago this week!
Where the heck was (is!) the national media on this story?
Unless you read RRW, you may never have known this from KTVB7:
Indictment: Boise man serving terrorism sentence tried to kill prison warden
RIVERSIDE, California — A Boise man who was convicted in 2015 of terrorism-related crimes has been indicted after prosecutors say he attacked the warden at the federal prison where he was held.
Fazliddin Kurbanov, 34, was just months into a 25-year sentence when the attack happened May 31, 2016 at the Federal Correctional Institute in Victorville, California.
He was indicted Wednesday on charges of attempted murder of a federal officer, assault on a federal officer with a deadly or dangerous weapon, and possession by an inmate of a prohibited object intended to be used as a weapon.
According to the U.S. Attorney’s Office, Kurbanov used a prison-made knife to attack Calvin Johnson, seriously injuring him. According to the Amercian Federation of Government Employees, the warden needed more than 80 staples to close wounds on his torso.
Of course we don’t have the full story and my primary questions are: How did he get a knife? And, how did he get close enough to the warden? Were they alone? Was the warden naive or attempting to show the convicted Jihadist how nice he (the warden) was?
Where is Jamshid Muhtorov another Uzbek refugee arrested in 2012 on terrorism charges?
Recently when I told you about another Uzbek refugee already in prison on terror charges after a guilty verdict in an Idaho trial, here, I wondered what happened to Jamshid Muhtorovwho I wrote about in 2012, here.
Before I give you the latest on Muhtorov, the big question remains:
Why were we bringing in this group of known Uzbek troublemakers anyway? Some didn’t even want to be here!
As one of my knowledgeable readers suggests, maybe the reason Muhtorov has not gone to trial yet is that the government might have to reveal why the Bush Administration was taking in Uzbek dissidents as legitimate refugees in the first place!
Isn’t it time for President Trump to force the US State Department and Homeland Security (and the CIA!) to tell us exactly what happened after the 2005 Andijan Uprisingin Uzbekistan (a Muslim country where the Muslim factions are fighting each other) and why we admitted some of the trouble makers to the US as refugees?
But that isn’t the end of my Uzbek file! Here are some other posts from over the years where you can learn more about why we should, at minimum, add Uzbekistan to the Trump extreme vetting list:
If you are looking for something to do today, call orwrite to the White House and tell Donald Trump to put a halt to the Diversity Visa Lottery and add Uzbekistan to the list of countries whose migrants to America will undergo “extreme vetting.” Click here.
Washington is all a tither this morning about how now former FBI Director James Comey might make a reappearance on The Hill next week. So, lest you forget, the man of the hour, the day, the week, hell, the century! James Comey said this on his last visit to the Senate. Any chance that Senators McCain, Graham, Rubio, Lee, Tillis or Lankfordwill ask about this bombshell from his previous testimony? Don’t hold your breath! (Below is a repost from May 9th! Written earlier in the same day that Comey was fired.)
FBI looking at 2,000 cases of US links to foreign terrorists, 300 are REFUGEES
Just when you thought you had had it with FBI Director Comey he admits something that you would never expect a politically-correct Washington insider to reveal.
Testifying before the Senate Judiciary Committee last Wednesday, Director Comey said in response to questioning by Senator Thom Tillis of NC about those being watched by the FBI who are in contact with foreign terrorists (from a transcript published by the WaPo):
Then we have another big group of people that we’re looking at who we see some contact with foreign terrorists. So you take that 2,000 plus cases, about 300 of them are people who came to the United States as refugees.
As far as I know no reporter has mentioned this stunning news. Mark Krikorian, Director of the Center for Immigration Studies caught it though and published the revelation at National Review Onlinehere yesterday.
Krikorian reminds us that Comey had testified to Congress on more than one occasionwhere he admitted that there is no way to thoroughly screen refugees from failed states like Syria and Somalia.
So 15 percent of the FBI’s terrorism cases are refugees – far more than their share of the immigrant population, let alone the general population. And that denominator of 2,000 presumably includes people with no immigration nexus at all – skinheads, antifa, Klan, environmental and animal rights extremists, et al. So the refugee share of immigration-related terrorism investigations is more than 15 percent, perhaps much more.
Krikorian goes on to argue that, except for a few special cases, we should help legitimate refugees where they are in the world and not risk bringing them to your town and mine.
