Dutch Intelligence Report Exposes Horrors of Daily Life Under ISIS

Family Security Matters

When the leaders of ISIS declared the caliphate of the Islamic State in June 2014, the world already had a strong idea of who they were: a jihadist group so violent, so barbaric, so extreme, that even al-Qaida, with whom they had once been affiliated, wanted nothing more to do with them.

But as the world soon learned, it would get even worse.

Former DHS Agent: Obama Is Protecting Islamic Terrorists

Moonbattery

Department of Homeland Security Veteran Philip Haney found it ironic in the extreme — not to mention infuriating — that after the Underwear Bomber was stopped only by his Third World hygiene from blowing up an airliner full of innocent people on Christmas Day 2009, Obama blamed it on the intelligence community not connecting dots. Meanwhile, in order to stand with the Muslims as he promised, Obama has been methodically erasing those dots:

After leaving my 15 year career at DHS, I can no longer be silent about the dangerous state of America’s counter-terror strategy, our leaders’ willingness to compromise the security of citizens for the ideological rigidity of political correctness—and, consequently, our vulnerability to devastating, mass-casualty attack.

Just before that Christmas Day attack, in early November 2009, I was ordered by my superiors at the Department of Homeland Security to delete or modify several hundred records of individuals tied to designated Islamist terror groups like Hamas from the important federal database, the Treasury Enforcement Communications System (TECS). These types of records are the basis for any ability to “connect dots.” Every day, DHS Customs and Border Protection officers watch entering and exiting many individuals associated with known terrorist affiliations, then look for patterns. Enforcing a political scrubbing of records of Muslims greatly affected our ability to do that. Even worse, going forward, my colleagues and I were prohibited from entering pertinent information into the database.

This does not so much prevent authorities from capturing terrorists after they have killed, as prevent them from stopping the attacks from occurring in the first place.

As the number of successful and attempted Islamic terrorist attacks on America increased, the type of information that the Obama administration ordered removed from travel and national security databases was the kind of information that, if properly assessed, could have prevented subsequent domestic Islamist attacks like the ones committed by Faisal Shahzad (May 2010), Detroit “honor killing” perpetrator Rahim A. Alfetlawi (2011); Amine El Khalifi, who plotted to blow up the U.S. Capitol (2012); Dzhokhar or Tamerlan Tsarnaev who conducted the Boston Marathon bombing (2013); Oklahoma beheading suspect Alton Nolen (2014); or Muhammed Yusuf Abdulazeez, who opened fire on two military installations in Chattanooga, Tennessee (2015).

It is very possible that Americans are dead who would not be if not for Obama’s commitment to defending Islam in the name of political correctness.

Imagine if during WWII the country was infested with Nazi spies who were killing people and were deliberately protected by the president. He would have been removed from office and tried for treason.

U.S. Blows $5.7 Bil on Cyber Defense System That Doesn’t Work

Judicial Watch

Reckless government spending is at full throttle with the example du jour a $5.7 billion cyber defense system created to protect computers at federal agencies against hackers. Despite its mind-boggling price tag the system is seriously flawed and uses features already available in much cheaper commercial-grade products, according to a federal probe made public recently.

The problem, besides sticking it to taxpayers for the exorbitant cost, is that the multibillion-dollar system simply doesn’t work. Nevertheless, the bloated agency handling this particular boondoggle, the Department of Homeland Security (DHS), insists the program, National Cybersecurity Protection System (NCPS), is effective despite its documented failures. This is par for the course at the monstrous agency created after the 9/11 terrorist attacks to keep the nation safe. DHS has been involved in a number of transgressions that have left the country incredibly vulnerable, especially on the southern border where Islamic terrorists have teamed up with Mexican drug cartels to enter the U.S.

Now it’s leaving sensitive computer systems throughout government vulnerable to web threats, even after spending an astounding amount of money. It gets better, or rather, more enraging. Most of the features used by the government’s specially created NCPS are available in commercial security network appliances that are already used by federal agencies. In fact, DHS admits that some commercial products, which cost a lot cheaper than $5.7 billion, likely contain more features than the agency’s fancy NCPS. You can’t make this stuff up! It’s all documented in a federal audit made public with lots of redactions, presumably to protect national security.

FBI Makes It Official: Hillary Rodham Clinton Is Under Investigation

Just the thing to propel her into the New Hampshire primary tomorrow:

PJ Media

In a letter disclosed Monday in a federal court filing, the FBI confirms one of the world’s worst-kept secrets: It is looking into Hillary Clinton’s use of a private email server.Why say this at all, since it was widely known to be true?  Because in August in response to a judge’s direction, the State Department asked the FBI for information about what it was up to.  Sorry, the FBI said at the time, we can neither confirm nor deny the existence of any investigation.

Now, in a letter dated February 2 and filed in court Monday, the FBI’s general counsel, James Baker, notes that in public statements and congressional testimony, the FBI “has acknowledged generally that it is working on matters related to former Secretary Clinton’s use of a private email server.”

NASA bans the word ‘Jesus’

The name of Jesus is not welcome in the Johnson Space Center newsletter, according to a complaint filed on behalf of a group of Christians who work for NASA.

The JSC Praise & Worship Club was directed by NASA attorneys to refrain from using the name ‘Jesus’ in club announcements that appeared in a Space Center newsletter.

“It was shocking to all of us and very frustrating,” NASA engineer Sophia Smith told me. “NASA has a long history of respecting religious speech. Why wouldn’t they allow us to put the name Jesus in the announcement about our club?”

Liberty Institute, one of the nation’s largest religious liberty law firms, threatened to file a federal lawsuit unless NASA apologizes and stops censoring the name ‘Jesus’.

Paul Ryan Calls Upon Conservatives to Surrender

Paul Ryan spoke at the Heritage Foundation to rally the forces on the right and ask conservatives to unite with the establishment until the election. There is nothing the GOP can do right now to fight Obama’s agenda about the Obama agenda.

Schools are closed in New York City today because it’s the Chinese New Year. They also close for two Muslim holidays because we are adapting to all the other peoples and cultures who decide to live in New York. The Hindus are now lobbying for their holiday. I’m sure their cultures are wonderful but the problem is we are being fundamentally transformed by leftists and this is part of the plan. There are so many millions pouring into our country from foreign lands that they cannot assimilate and that is the idea.

Paul Ryan appeared to surrender to the Obama agenda during the speech at Heritage and, coincidentally of course, after meeting with the White House and Mitch McConnell. Rumors circulated after that meeting that they came to an understanding that they would let Obama’s agenda go forward unimpeded until November.

We always have to wait for the next election with no indication anything will change.
