The Paris terrorist attacks bring to mind the frightening case of an Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS) operative arrested in Chicago last fall and released earlier this year to serve probation in Illinois for a state crime that secretly drew federal intervention.
His name is Emad Karakrah, the ringleader of a sophisticated narco-terror operation and the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) facilitated his release from Cook County Jail in January. Judicial Watch uncovered Karakrah’s terrorism record and has reported extensively on his extremist activities, including a 2009 plot to bomb talk-show host Oprah Winfrey’s Chicago studios and the iconic Sears Tower. In late August of last year Karakrah was arrested after leading police on a high-speed chase through Chicago streets as an ISIS flag waved from his car. When Chicago Police finally stopped and arrested Karakrah, he told officers his car was rigged with explosives that would detonate if searched. Bomb disposal units secured the vehicle without incident, but Karakrah’s arrest helped expose a narco-terrorist network with roots and financing in El Paso, Texas.

Hillary Clinton was “often confused” about elements of her job at the State Department, according to an email written by her close aide Huma Abedin and released by a watchdog group on Monday.
Judicial Watch obtained a number of Abedin’s work-related emails through a public records request and published over 35 pages of the correspondence on Monday.
The messages include details of Clinton’s finalized daily schedules—information that is often considered sensitive—sent to Abedin over an unclassified email server.
The email included the note: “The information contained in this email is not to be shared, forwarded or duplicated.”
Another message showed Clinton Global Initiative official Doug Band forwarded a request for visa help to Abedin.
“Doug—Attached is an email from State. All requested information has been submitted. Can you-inquire as to status on my behalf?” wrote the individual, whose name was redacted, in the Oct. 2, 2011, email to Band.
Band replied that he could forward it to someone at the State Department but there was nothing he could do to speed up the visa process. He sent it to Abedin, although there is no evidence that the request had any impact on the visa request.
It should be absolutely clear to anyone with a brain that the Muslims have watched nations like France, Germany and the US that we have a soft heart for refugees…so why not send their Jihadist fighters into our countries and rage war against our populations and win instead of trying to wage war with our superior military in their countries and lose! Unfortunately, we have a Muslim in the White House who wages war against cops, Christians and white people right here in our own country setting the example for the Muslim crazies everywhere else to wage war on the west.
Obama is a traitor and should be treated as one!
Barack Obama’s demagogic presidency has unleashed state-sanctioned mob violence to a degree not seen since the Jim Crow era.
Obama-approved lynch mobs have been helping to force the fundamental transformation of America that the radical left-wing community organizer promised on the campaign trail in 2008. Creating little armies of malcontents has long been the way Obama’s fellow Marxist agitators have turned groups in society against each other in order to generate the civil unrest and societal instability needed to effect unwanted change. Sometimes thugs get things done that elections can’t.
Climate Changer in Chief
Barack Obama’s presser on ISIS today ignored the seriousness of the ISIS threat but Obama did take the time to call Americans “shameful” for not wanting unvetted Muslims into the country. He told us it is not “who we are” and these aren’t “our values”.
Those “values” have really gotten the French far.
He was offended that some people are willing to take in Christians, but not Muslims. The fact that it is radical Muslims, not Christians who want to attack us eluded him. In fact, 93% of the immigrants we have taken in are Muslim.
His presser was not popular with Americans on both sides of the aisle. Dianne Feinstein made it quite clear that ISIS is NOT CONTAINED. Gloria Borger, Christiane Amanpour, Nick Paton Walsh also had problems with his speech
They would like to know how his strategy is working.
I’d be happy to know what his strategy is. Playing whack-a-mole isn’t usually a strategy.
Dianne Feinstein said she has never been “more concerned.”
