“Follow the money” – that fundamental rule for investigating organized crime – also holds true for uncovering terrorist organizations. But if the search leads to your own doorstep, immediate and decisive action must be taken.
This may be the case for the U.S. government in light of recent statements by Mahmoud Abbas, the current president of the Palestinian Authority. The 81-year-old Abbas, who has been president since 2005, is calling for unifying the Fatah party government with Hamas, which controls the Gaza Strip. President Bill Clinton’s executive order first labeled Hamas as a foreign terrorist organization in 1995.
Hamas was included among terrorist groups whose “grave acts of violence … disrupt the Middle East peace process [and] constitute an unusual and extraordinary threat to the national security, foreign policy, and economy of the United States.”
The State Department followed that up by labeling Hamas as a foreign terrorist organization in 1997. Those actions make it prohibited by law for any U.S. citizen to provide material support, including currency, to the organization. That means that if you or I gave a dollar to them or their pseudo charities, we can go to prison.

Yesterday, Barack Obama’s Secretary of Homeland Security delivered what should be the “kiss of death” to the ambitions of a prospective successor, Rep. Michael McCaul. Jeh Johnson is, after all, the poster-child of official willful blindness towards Islamic supremacism. A Trump administration must not perpetuate such malfeasance.
Secretary Johnson thinks so highly of the chairman of the House Homeland Security Committee because McCaul has repeatedly supported Team Obama’s Islamist-dictated and -enabling “Countering Violent Extremism” program. The Congressman even inscribed a photograph he took with leaders of the Council on American Islamic Relations, extolling them as “moderate Muslims” and “our secret weapon.” In fact, CAIR is Hamas.
Candidate Donald Trump promised to counter the anti-constitutional Sharia ideology aggressively promoted by Muslim Brotherhood fronts like CAIR. That will require like-minded subordinates, not those willfully blind like Jeh Johnson and Michael McCaul.

Another day, yet another act of jihad.
To be sure, the authorities are discouraging us from connecting the dots between the fact that the perpetrator who tried to run over, then butcher, innocent Ohio State University students is a Somali refugee and that he recently publicly professed his Muslim faith.
They tell us they’re still trying to establish a motive. They say they have not yet concluded that it was a terrorist attack. And no one else is supposed to jump to conclusions.
In fact, it’s generally the case in such incidents when the perp is a foreign-born Muslim, the violence is not an inexplicable “lone wolf” attack. It’s an individual jihadist action, intended to terrify and dominate infidels in furtherance of the Islamic supremacists’ goal of imposing worldwide their totalitarian doctrine, Sharia.
It amounts to a dangerous self-delusion to pretend otherwise.
The shockingly high figure comes from one of LTC(R) Shaffer’s sources involved with the refugee flows.
Last week we saw CIA head John Brennan testify that ISIS has “a large cadre” of foreign fighters to serve in attacking the West, and also that ISIS was probably using refugee flows as a means of vectoring its agents into the West. Now a former high-level intelligence officer claims that he has a source that gives a more specific figure. At least fifteen percent of refugees are ISIS, according to LTC(R) Anthony Shaffer of the London Center for Policy Research. The claim came in an interview Shaffer gave to a radio show hosted by Larry O’Connor and Brian Wilson on WMAL. (You can listen to the interview here.)
“I got the percentage from one of my sources. We’re talking about, right now, in the refugee stream, between 15-17% of individuals coming through the refugee stream are ISIS.”
Fidel Castro has finally met his long overdue death. Good riddance. If you think that sounds harsh, you’re probably not among those who were victimized by his barbaric ascent and brutal 50-year dictatorship.
Castro and his crew were (and still are) murderers – a gang of cold-blooded killers who promised liberation and delivered death, torture, and servitude. They line their pockets and live like kings while those beneath them toil away their lives for a pittance. Step out of line, and you vanish.
There is nothing to revere here.
Those who praise Castro’s lifelong ability to thumb his nose at the United States turn a blind eye to decades of hubris, violence, mass graves, and vicious cruelty.
Normally, when world leaders pass on – even those with whom I have vehement disagreement – I go the “don’t speak ill of the dead” route. Fidel Castro’s death is a different story.
It’s joyous news for a great many people, as evidenced by the celebrations erupting this morning in Miami.

The US Council of Muslim Organizations (USCMO) is boasting that its voter registration campaign “One Million Voters” across mosques and schools has doubled the number of registered Muslim voters to over a million.
The media is cheering this development even though USCMO has a history that makes the KKK look downright sunny. USCMO was in the news last year for its statement denying the Muslim genocide of Armenians and arguing that any recognition of the massacre must also recognize “Muslim suffering.”
USCMO’s Secretary General Oussama Jammal had engaged in 9/11 Trutherism at a rally backing a Hamas supporter. He was president of the Bridgeview Mosque which raised money for the head of Islamic Jihad. The Chicago Tribune described this as the result of a “hard line” takeover of the mosque.

Hillary’s State Department ignored internal advice and hired an obscure firm from Wales called Blue Mountain Group to protect U.S. diplomats in Benghazi. They in turn put out a newspaper ad in the local terror-plagued region and, took those applicants to assemble a team of 20 guards, many with terror ties.
The firm was paid $9.2 million per year for that.
What does an ad like that look like, “Wanted, trustworthy guards for U.S. mission”?
Fox News spoke to a source about this.
