Apparently, it pays to be an Al Qaeda-affiliated terrorist under President Obama’s reign. After being set free from Guantanamo Bay because you’re no longer considered a threat, you’re then sent to live in a beach-laden South American country to enjoy government benefits and demand more money from the U.S. government.
That’s exactly what’s happening on the ground right now in Uruguay, as six former Gitmo prisoners, all with Al Qaeda ties, are holding a protest outside of the U.S. Embassy, demanding that the United States government pay to house them and to have their families sent there.
“We’ll be here until Monday. We are not leaving until with speak with the ambassador,” former prisoner Adel bin Muhammad El Ouerghi said.
About 100 Somalis rallied at the Minnesota State Capitol Saturday, demanding the release of six terror suspects.
They want the attacks against them stopped, they claimed.
Six Somali men were arrested for trying to join ISIS along with two in San Diego and another who made Twitter threats. The mothers of three of the terrorists were at the protest.
U.S. Attorney Andrew Luger admitted last Monday that they have a problem in this community.

New York gun owners torched a thousand gun registrations yesterday in Sarasota Springs. The protest was organized by NY2A Grassroots Coalition. The PostStar reported, via Menrec:
Nearly a thousand gun registration forms were turned into ashes Sunday.
The forms are used for people to register with New York State Police firearms that meet the state’s definition of military-style assault weapons. The deadline is April 15. Gun rights advocates gathered at the Saratoga-Wilton Elks Lodge 161 to burn the papers in a symbolic protest.
E.J. Stokes, leader of the Warren County chapter of New York Revolution, said he was participating because he believes in the U.S. Constitution.
“Once the Second (Amendment) falls, the rest will go with it. It’s an unconstitutional law, done in the middle of the night with no input from the public,” he said.
The event was organized by the NY2A Grassroots Coalition. NY2A co-founder Jake Palmateer said the goal is for people not to register their assault weapon as an act of civil disobedience.
“We are opposed to registration because the evidence is clear that registration leads to confiscation,” he said.
He and others hope that so few people will fill out the forms, that the registry portion of the SAFE Act “collapses under its own weight.”
He estimates that less than 3,000 New York assault weapons have been registered and he says Sate Police estimated that there are several hundred thousand. The gun industry believes the number may be high as 1.2 million, according to Palmateer.
In the recent article 1 Million Truckers to Protest Obama by Shutting America Down for 3 Days in October, I reported the Facebook page, Truckers to Shut Down America, was urging truckers to drive to DC October 11-13, 2013 and Americans to boycott in support of the truck drivers by ceasing all money transactions for those days. At the time of that article, the site had little over 10,000 likes. I wanted to provide an update.
Three days after I wrote about the march, the site has garnered over 67,000 likes and new developments have arisen that could only have happened due to the overwhelming support for our hard working truck driving friends.
Last year the American Truckers Association prepared a report for Congresshighlighting the susceptibility of the nation’s just-in-time delivery system, the majority of which is made possible by the transport and delivery of freight. In the event of a catastrophic disaster such as a war that drives fuel prices through the roof or even a natural disaster such as a solar flare that renders electronic trucks inoperable, there would be a “a swift and devastating impact on the food, healthcare, transportation, waste removal, retail, manufacturing, and financial sectors,” according to the report.
The backbone of commerce in the United States are the truck drivers who spend long hours on the road ensuring our very survival as a modern society.
But with fuel prices continuing to rise, wages dropping, jobs becoming harder to find, and rampant corruption in Washington D.C. furthering the country’s economic death spiral, America’s truck drivers, like the majority of our fellow citizens, are fed up.
Between October 11th and 13th they have called for a general strike, asking truck drivers around the country to refuse to haul freight, a move that could carry with it a significant impact on the American economy.
