French intelligence has confirmed that ISIS has not only gotten hold of fake passports, they have turned it into an entire industry. IS is headed for the United States and is likely already here, in addition to the ones we already know are here.
French Interior Minister Bernard Cazeneuve told reporters that through ISIS’s operations, ISIS has now set up a “real fake document industry” from passports seized in Iraq, Syria and Libya,
ISIS has acquired thousands of fake passports and at least one passport-making machine.

An East Chicago councilman was sworn into office behind bars earlier this month while in custody on murder charges.
Robert Battle, who was re-elected in November when he ran unopposed, was given his oath of office and signed required paperwork on Jan. 15, said Paula Miraldi, of the Lake County Board of Elections in northwest Indiana.
The board of elections received the paperwork Friday morning, but it was dated Jan. 15. Battle needed to be sworn in and submit his paperwork by Feb. 1, otherwise the council post would be declared vacant.
Battle has been in the custody of the Porter Council Jail in northwest Indiana, according to the Porter County Sheriff’s Office.
“We would not have specific knowledge of an event for it. Many different ways it could be completed,” said Sgt. Jamie Erow, of the sheriff’s office.
Battle needed to meet with a notary public to complete the process, Miraldi said. His paperwork indicates that it was completed by Margaret J. Hawkins, a notary public and civil clerk.
Prosecutors said Battle fatally shot Reimundo Camarillo Jr. in October. Battle’s attorney has claimed that Camarillo pulled a knife on him, but police said they didn’t find a knife at the scene.
The murder charge came just weeks after Battle was arrested for drug possession.
Barack Obama – $10 Million Travel Man
Imagine being able to jet off to golf weekend getaways on a whim. I don’t even golf but of course it would be nice to be able get out of dodge to avoid the nasty blizzard now arriving here in DC.
But it is good to be the king. Or president. Because Barack Obama jets off on Air Force One, without a seeming care in the world about the costs to taxpayers, for golf weekends on a regular basis.
We have just obtained records from the U.S. Department of the Air Force revealing that the October 2015 Columbus Day getaway enjoyed by President Barack Obama and his family cost taxpayers $969,783.90 in flight expenses alone. The documents regarding the Obama travel expenses came in response to a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request first filed on October 13, 2015.

Family Security Matters
The liberal media avoid reporting on President Obama’s many scandals  at any cost, and Fast and Furious is no exception. Despite the media’s studied avoidance of these scandals, their impact continues. When Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms agents discovered that a weapon from Fast and Furious was found in Joaquin “El Chapo” Guzman’s Mexican hideout, there was virtual silence from the mainstream media.
But U.S. District Court Judge Amy Berman Jackson’s ruling that President Obama cannot use executive privilege to prevent the release of records to Congress has the potential to breathe new life into this ongoing scandal. “Berman Jackson limited her order to information not covered by other protections and told the Justice Department to produce it by Feb. 2,” reports  Bloomberg. The judge is an Obama appointee, and yet none of the network evening news shows found this story to be newsworthy. The only mention of it in The Washington Post was in an online blog, PowerPost, under the heading “Hot on the Right,” that linked to a Politico story. You see, it’s a story that only appeals to conservatives, so why bother to put a reporter on it?
Don’t expect reporters to suddenly start reporting on Fast and Furious’ ongoing death toll.
