Family Security Matters
by KYLE SHIDELER
Following a New York Post article, which released new and revealing snippets from the pages of the Journal of Muslim Minority Affairs, a 2012 controversy about the nature of Huma Abedin’s associations, has again kicked into high gear. While some in the media have attempted to defend Abedin, and the journal, they’ve played fast and loose with the facts.
At the heart of the matter is Abedin’s involvement with an organization founded by a man named Abdullah Omar Naseef, a Saudi official who spent decades involved with organizations which would go on to be designated for engaging in terror finance.
Here’s what you need to know:
Last week the Obama Administration approved its largest-ever release of detainees from Guantanamo Bay, sending 15 extremists back into the world.
By now, the pattern has become familiar: the President lets hardened terrorists go free, Congress and the American people express outrage, and the White House ignores the uproar.
But the grave risks of this policy cannot be ignored. The President is giving terrorists a one-way ticket back to the battlefield.
In fact, officials have confirmed to Congress that some former detainees are responsible for attacking or killing Americans since being freed. Yet, incredibly, the releases persist.
Not only does the President’s rush to open Gitmo’s jail cells allow fighters to keep waging war against us, it also gives the jihadist A-team a chance to mentor a new generation of radicals.
“Outrageous” hardly describes the non-logic of this policy. What Commander-in-Chief lets the enemy return to the fight in the middle of a war?
But that’s just the problem—the President doesn’t believe we’re fighting one.

A U.S. Southern Command intelligence report warns that Sunni Muslim extremists [ISIS are Sunni] are infiltrating the US freely from the southern border. It’s not only Sunnis.
They are coming in with illegal alien smugglers from South America.
“Networks that specialize in smuggling individuals from regions of terrorist concern, mainly from the Afghanistan-Pakistan region, the Middle East, and East Africa, are indeed a concern for Southcom and other interagency security partners who support our country’s national security,” Army Col. Lisa A. Garcia, a Southcom spokeswoman, told the Washington Free Beacon.
“There are major hubs that serve as entry points into the region for migrants from those areas of concern attempting to enter the U.S. along our border with Mexico,” she said.
SECURE FREEDOM MINUTE
Yesterday in Los Angeles, European and American freedom fighters met to raise an alarm about the dire threat Western civilization faces from Islamic supremacism. Convened by the American Freedom Alliance and featuring a powerful keynote address by Ambassador John Bolton, this conference made clear that Europe is already submitting to Sharia. And we are in the advanced stages of doing so, as well.
The canary-in-the-mineshaft is the state of freedom of expression. European participants warned that, thanks to essentially unchecked Muslim immigration and decades of multiculturalism, secularism and transnationalism, they and other opponents of Sharia are being prosecuted for speaking truthfully about its incompatibility with liberty.
For an American audience, the message was clear: Will we here continue going down the same road? Or will we choose to thwart those enemies, foreign and domestic, seeking our submission?
The Gateway Pundit
Trump was right.
A declassified and released FOIA document from 2012 shows that Obama and Hillary knew their actions would destabilize eastern Syrian and allow a Salafist principality to take hold of the region.

The Obama administration on Monday transferred 15 detainees from the U.S. military prison at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, to the United Arab Emirates, the largest release under the current president, the Pentagon said.
The transfer comes as the president faces a looming deadline to keep the promise he made on his first day in office to close the military prison. The detainee population there dipped under 100 for the first time in years in January with the release of 10 Yemeni prisoners, and will shrink to 61 with the latest transfer, underscoring a late effort to move toward closure.
“The United States is grateful to the Government of the United Arab Emirates for its humanitarian gesture and willingness to support ongoing U.S. efforts to close the Guantanamo Bay detention facility,” the Pentagon said in a statement. “The United States coordinated with the Government of the United Arab Emirates to ensure these transfers took place consistent with appropriate security and humane treatment measures.”
The move was immediately condemned by Ed Royce (R.-Calif.), the chairman of the House Foreign Affairs Committee. He accused the Obama administration in a statement of “doubling down on policies that put American lives at risk” and “recklessness.”

CENTCOM manipulated and deleted data to present a positive picture of the battle against Isis and al Qaeda according to a report by the House released on Thursday. Does anyone believe it wasn’t ordered by the president and that he was kept in the dark? A general now says that it came from the president himself.
Retired Brigadier General Tony Tata appeared on Fox News with host former Governor Mike Huckabee this evening and revealed that his well-placed sources told him someone from the Office of National Intelligence who meets regularly with the president commanded a senior official in CENTCOM to quit producing products of record that showed negative intelligence that didn’t fit the narrative of the Obama administration.
The administration ordered the cooking of the books, the General said. The president wants the JV tale out in the public domain.
The General also said people are being punished for doing their job.
General Tata said it goes all the way to Barack Obama, not simply White House officials.
