The great fear that is driving much of political policy today is that America could suffer another 9/11 type attack. Ever since that fateful day, lawmakers have been tasked with making sure that nothing like that ever happens again. The path to that end has been hotly debated since not everyone believes those attacks were prompted by what the attackers said it was prompted by. In other words, even though terrorists always say that they’re doing it in accordance with the laws of their religion, some people don’t want to believe that the religion is at fault.
If it had just been one person, twisting something or taking it out of context, that theory might make sense, but we’ve seen the same pattern time and again. No matter how many times the western world is attacked by a Muslim who’s following his version of Allah’s word, it is brushed off as extremism. Those who would accept Muslims with open arms tend to conveniently forget that those who attack us are just following orders, and even if they did die in the attack, 2 more will rise up to replace him.
The ignorance of the left has expanded to the point that even though planes are being used to target U.S. cities, some of the more progressive liberals have decided that it would be a show of good faith to give local Muslims a tour of the airport security protocols, and just how they work. Little did they know that some of those people would be implicated in a terrorist plot just months later. City Journal reports that the ridiculous tour took place at the Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport in March of 2016:
“A sidebar to the story of the ISIS-affiliated Somali men convicted on terrorism charges last year in federal district court in Minneapolis: one of the men who pleaded guilty and cooperated with the prosecution had worked on the tarmac at Minneapolis–St. Paul International Airport (MSP) and could have done serious harm. So had the one who turned informant and was never charged in the case. When his FBI interlocutors persuaded him to turn, he had a question for them: “Can I get my job at the airport back?”
That’s not all. In his March 29, 2016 Star Tribune story, Stephen Montemayor reported in passing that local imams and Muslim ‘community leaders’ had received a ‘behind-the-scenes security tour’ in February last year at MSP. Montemayor mentioned the tour when he noted that Hassan Mohamud—also known as ‘Sheikh Hassan,’ an imam working as a legal assistant for one of the defendants—had been ‘uninvited’ from the tour.
What was that tour for Muslims only all about?
Indeed, what was that tour all about? Also, who were the privileged “Muslim community members” given this backstage visit at the Minneapolis–St. Paul International Airport?
Reporter Scott W. Johnson sought answers and soon found himself in a bureaucratic rabbit-hole. Eventually the Department of Homeland Security Office of Civil Rights and Civil Liberties advised him he had to submit a Freedom of Information Act request to get the information he sought. His reward after “two FOIA requests, two appeals of the responses to my FOIA requests, and one FOIA lawsuit filed in federal district court here” was “78 heavily redacted pages.” (See the FOIA reply here)
The identity of the “Muslim community members” were among the redactions. DHS gives a multitude of statutory reasons for not revealing the identity of the “Muslim community members.” The most bizarre, which we hope to cure right now:
“The FOIA and the case law require that we balance the individual’s privacy right against the public interest in disclosing the individual’s private information. Thus, we must weigh whether those individuals’ right to privacy in detailed information (such as names, demographics and contact information) outweigh the public interest in the planning and execution of the meeting that occurred in February, 2016. But for some Minnesota-based media articles written about the meeting, there was no national interest in the meeting.
Hopefully we need not await a jihad attack before the identities of those ‘Muslim community members’ are revealed in a post-incident 9/11 Commission-style report.”
A mission statement or community goal officially ceases to be useful when people’s lives start to be at stake. The left with all it’s political correctness and backward agendas seem to be under the impression that there will be some sort of long-term gain from the befriending of the Muslim community when there could be nothing further from the truth.
It is clear that the only reason Muslims are invading the western world in droves is that they’ve rendered their own area of the world uninhabitable with their petty squabbling and ridiculous religions wars. If that’s not warning enough that we should consider their residence here very carefully, the perpetual attacks should have sealed their fate. But no, politicians more worried about the next voting cycle would rather put you and I in danger than actually believe and speak the truth and risk not being re-elected.
Welcome to America, land of the free, home of whoever can trick the social justice warriors into believing they need protection.

BREAKING! Christmas Week Massacre Leaves 6 DEAD, 51 Wounded In U.S. – This Means WAR!
This month has been among the bloodiest on record, leaving 6 dead and an additional 51 victims were wounded in the brutal ambush in one week. As people in this area are trying to come to grips with the sudden attack, President Donald Trump will soon be addressing it, as he’s expected to make an announcement about the bloodbath that has never been said before.
While most people were looking forward to the weekend, Chicago thugs were preparing for a bloodbath knowing that nobody would stop them at their killing game that began on November 1 and continued through this past Friday. Officials in Chicago have overlooked the problems in their city for too long and it’s been at the cost of countless lives.
As Barack Obama’s former hometown, he didn’t seem to want to address it either and the rising murder rate is also a big part of his legacy having made excuses for criminals and empowered Black Lives Matter. Now that there is a real leader in charge, President Donald Trump isn’t letting murderous thugs get away with this killing spree at a rate of one fatality every hour and 45 minutes in the Windy City, according to stats provided by HeyJackass.com.
The respect for human life is completely absent in the tight gun-controlled city on both ends of the spectrum. Thugs pick their victims at random without concern for age, as was seen this weekend with the unprecedented violence. This lack of respect extends to local government which has done nothing to stop in and removed citizens’ right to defend themselves against it.
9News reports of a boy who lost his life today while trying to earn money to buy his family Christmas presents:
Brian Jasso and his stepfather were driving their newspaper route early Sunday morning when the assailants in another vehicle rear-ended them. The gunman, who witnesses told police was hanging out of the passenger side of the suspects’ car, then opened fire and wounded the teen in the head.
Riccio said that investigators suspect that the shooting of the paper boy may have been connected to another incident in the city that occurred about eight hours earlier in which two people were killed — a 25-year-old man and 21-year-old woman — and a third man was wounded. Police say that incident was a gang-related shooting.
In the gang-related shooting, detectives found 77 rifle casings at the scene of the crime, Riccio said. No arrests have been made in either shooting.
More than 630 people have been murdered in Chicago thus far in 2017, according to police. The nation’s third-largest city is on pace to record significantly fewer murders than it did last year when it tallied more than 760 murders, according to police records.
Still, the city is on pace to again record more murders than New York and Los Angeles combined in 2017. New York’s and Los Angeles’ combined population is about 12.5 million, while Chicago’s population is about 2.7 million.
President Trump has repeatedly criticized Chicago over the gun violence, and once again laid into the city during a speech last week at the FBI’s academy in Quantico, Va.
Chicago has become more of a war zone than a place to call home, where it’s not even safe to go outside without risking your life. Now Trump has come out announcing that Chicago cops need to be able to do their job, which would stop this crime spree “immediately.”
“President Donald Trump’s claim that a mystery police officer has a quick fix for Chicago’s violent crime problems continued to evolve Wednesday night, as the president claimed the unnamed cop told him ‘if they let us do our job we could stop it immediately,'” CBS reports.
“By being very much tougher than they are right now. They’re right now not tough.” Trump said in an August 2016 interview with Bill O’Reilly. “When I was in Chicago, I got to meet a couple of very top police. I said, ‘How do you stop this, how do you stop this? If you were put in charge… Do you think you could stop this?’ He said, ‘Mr. Trump, I’d be able to stop it in one week.’ And I believed him 100 percent.”
Almost as shocking as the overwhelming crime rate in the city, is the fact that in 90 percent of these cases, where victims were either injured or killed, not a single suspect has been charged, Allen B. West reported. Perhaps this statistic came out at the end of Barack Obama’s presidency, after allowing thugs to run free and excuse it as what disgruntled millennials do when suffering from poverty.
What’s interesting to note is that not a single one of these shootings this month involved a police officer, which is a big statistical change since Trump has been in office. Now, things could be getting a lot worse for these thugs and better for the city suffering under their wrath since our president has vowed to combat the gangster and thug issued that runs rampant in inner cities across the country. He’s one of the first to take a bold stance against it, proving he’s not afraid of these criminals, and it’s only a matter of time before he publicly addresses this issue again after his executive orders on the matter and sending ATF (Alcohol, Tobacco, and Firearms) agents in to help.
Among his pile of important executive orders to get the country back on track, were three crucial ones targeting gangs, drugs, and crimes against cops. “According to CNBC, the executive orders will focus on ‘gang members, drug dealers, drug cartels & crimes against law enforcement officers’,” Bustle reported. “During Jeff Sessions’ formal ceremony after his confirmation, President Trump announced his plans for these three executive orders, which give more authority to law enforcement.”
“During his ceremony, Sessions said that the U.S. has ‘a crime problem’ that may be ‘a dangerous permanent trend’,” Bustle’s reports added. “In an effort to remedy this, Trump’s latest executive orders will specifically target what he views as the leading causes of crime: gang members, drug cartels and dealers, and those who commit crimes against cops.
If anyone is doing more for the black community and proving black lives matter than Barack Obama, it’s his successor, President Trump. Eighty-eight percent of the victims in Chicago are black and were all ignored while Obama was in office, pushing and supporting the Black Lives Matter movement. Trump will single-handedly save countless black lives by cracking down in these thugs who kill other people — many of whom are random and just in the wrong place at the wrong time in the war zone.
Trump Just Got The Last Laugh On San Francisco Illegal Alien Murder Suspect – Law and Order Has RETURNED!
A jury lets Kate Steinle’s killer off the hook by finding him not guilty of murder, but that wasn’t the end of the road when it came to the legal consequences he faced. Even though Jose Ines Garcia Zarate wasn’t found guilty of murder, there was still a chance that he would find himself behind bars. That’s because, according to a warrant issued by the U.S. District Court for the western district of Texas, Zarate was subject to supervised released beginning March 26th, 2015. That probation barred him from committing another crime and from possessing a firearm – terms he was obviously bound by when he killed Steinle in the sanctuary city San Francisco.
It was shocking that a jury couldn’t reach a consensus on a gun crime in San Francisco of all places. On the other hand, the defense tried to argue that Zarate’s gun discharged itself accidentally, and only those with the politics of someone in San Francisco could actually believe that’s possible.
Meanwhile, ICE also said that they had planned on deporting Zarate for the sixth time and it was unclear if that would conflict with implementing any legal consequences available. It looks like the latter will indeed happen and Zarate could be up the creek without an American paddle to save him.
According to Downtrend, on Wednesday, “a federal grand jury indicted him for being a felon in possession of a firearm and ammunition, and for being an illegally present alien in possession of a firearm and ammunition. The indictments could result in a ten-year prison sentence.”
This came after the Justice Department and the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives announced it is charging Zarate with being a felon in possession of a firearm and ammunition and being an illegally present alien in possession of a firearm and ammunition. With President Donald Trump himself speaking out against the verdict from the San Francisco trial, it’s clear his administration has a vested interest in punishing Zarate – something the jury should’ve done first.
Attorney General Jeff Sessions announced the grand jury’s indictment. While acquitted on murder charges, he’s now facing federal firearm charges.
“According to the indictment, on July 1, 2015, Garcia-Zarate, a citizen of Mexico who reportedly is 47 years old, possessed a semi-automatic pistol and multiple rounds of ammunition in violation of 18 U.S.C. § 922(g)(1) (felon in possession of a firearm) and 18 U.S.C. § 922(g)(5) (unlawfully present alien in possession of a firearm),” a Justice Department statement reads.
“Garcia-Zarate currently is in state custody on other charges,” the statement adds. “If convicted of either violation of 18 U.S.C. § 922(g), Garcia-Zarate faces a maximum statutory penalty of 10 years in prison.”
A federal grand jury indicted Jose Inez Garcia-Zarate for being a felon in possession of a firearm and ammunition and for being "an illegally present alien in possession of a firearm and ammunition," according to announcement from the Justice Department. pic.twitter.com/aLjUannlpO

Zarate will not go to jail for as long as he should be, or for the charge he should’ve been found guilty of, but some justice will be served. Don’t be fooled for a minute in thinking that Zarate would have seen prison time under another administration.
The next step in this ordeal is battling the cities who protect illegal immigrant criminals with sanctuary city status.

Breaking: Shameless Democrat Sentenced to 5 Years In Jail — Her Response Is Insane
It must be hard to be a member of the liberal media because the only scandal they can seem to promote is the bogus Russia story that still has not a single ounce of merit or collusion. It’s so bad that people are digging up Trump’s old bank account records from Germany, but still, nothing of substance involves Russia.
The floodgates have opened and Democrats in the media, the entertainment industry, and politics are drowning in sexual misconduct allegations and other crimes. Ironically, many of those accused have claimed to be “champions” of women’s causes.
And that’s not all. Just yesterday we learned that House Intelligence Committee chairman Devin Nunes has instructed his committee to cite the FBI in contempt of Congress after they withheld information regarding why Peter Strzok was suddenly removed from Robert Mueller’s Russia probe. As it turned out, three months ago Strzok had exchanged anti-Trump texts with a colleague. A bombshell exposing political bias in the Russia probe, but nobody in the media seemed to care.
That brings us to another Democrat in trouble who is actually facing very harsh consequences. While New Jersey’s Bob Menendez walked on his corruption charges, a fellow Democrat wasn’t so lucky. Brown faces hard a hard time jail and she’s getting it.
According to America’s News Hub, “Former Florida Democratic Rep. Corrine Brown was just sentenced to five years in prison and three years probation for mail, wire and tax fraud involving a sham charity. She supported a charity that was supposed to be gathering money for scholarships for poor students but actually was going to fill her pockets and those of her associates.”
Sounds familiar. Is that something she learned from the Clinton’s and their foundation? Remember when the Clinton Foundation shelled out $10 million for Chelsea’s wedding? The only flaw with this analogy is that I nearly forgot the Clinton’s are above the law.
According to the Washington Times: “She was convicted in May after two former aides accepted plea deals in return for testifying against her. She supposedly used the money for personal purposes like lavish parties and trips. She also purportedly lied about it on her tax returns. Her aide and another official made a plea deal and gave Brown up, testifying against her at her trial.”
One of the co-conspirators of Brown, Carla Wiley, pleaded guilty to one count of conspiracy to commit wire fraud based upon $800,000 in deposits she made to the foundation over four years.
Brown meanwhile blamed her former chief of staff Ronnie Simmons – which nobody bought, as Brown was convicted on 18 or 22 charges.
BREAKING: Sentences for ex-U.S. Rep. Corrine Brown and conspirators:
Brown – 5 years; 3 years of probation.
Ronnie Simmons (former chief of staff) – 4 years; 3 years probation.
Carla Wiley (started fake charity all three used as slush fund) – 1 year, 9 months; 3 years probation.

Brown’s response to all of this was insane. What does Democrat Corrine Brown blame for her misfortune? Like any good victim in 2017, she cried racism. “I’m a black woman with a mouth,” she said. The nation’s other twenty+ million black women haven’t yet had the same misfortune of acquiring nearly a million dollars – legally or illegally.
Brown could have easily avoided jail time if she had paid attention to this video:
It’s very sad that there’s a slim chance this case will convince Brown’s voter base to give another party a chance.
It is undeniable that when it comes to governing at the state and local level, Republicans do it best.
A study by the non-profit group Truth in Accounting looked at the public financing and debt burdens of all fifty states, which have a total of $1.5 trillion in long-term debt. Most of the debt is attributable to unfunded employee pensions and retiree health benefits. The overall conclusion of the study was that red states manage their finances a heck of a lot better than blue states. In this case, I’ll be using the terms “red states” and “blue states” to mean “states where Republicans/Democrats have control of the governorship and both legislative houses.”
- In Blue States, there is an average of $22,214 in unfunded debt. In the Red States, that taxpayer burden is only $1,473.
- In States where power is split, the average is $14,963
- The five best states, along with their “surplus” per taxpayer are: Alaska, +$38,200, North Dakota, +$24,000, Wyoming, +$20,500, Utah, +$4,600, Nebraska, +$2,600.
- The five worst states, along with their debt per taxpayer are New Jersey, -$67,200, Illinois, -$50,400, Connecticut, -$49,500 Kentucky, -$39,000 Massachusetts, -$32,900.
We’ve seen the consequences at the national level – with our former Democrat President accruing $10 trillion in debt.
Where does the Democrat party go from here?
