President Trump Set to Designate Mexican Drug Cartels as Terrorists

President Donald Trump has signaled that he intends to formally designate the Mexican drug cartels as terrorist organizations.

President Donald Trump has signaled that he intends to formally designate the Mexican drug cartels as terrorist organizations.

The president cited not just the obscene violence perpetrated by the cartels but also their acts of human trafficking.

“They will be designated … I have been working on that for the last 90 days. You know, designation is not that easy, you have to go through a process, and we are well into that process,” Trump said in an interview with Bill O’Reilly that aired on Tuesday, according to Reuters wire service.

Once a group is designated as a terrorist organization, under U.S. law it is illegal for people in the United States to knowingly offer support and its members cannot enter the country and may be deported. Financial institutions that become aware they have funds connected to the group must block the money and alert the U.S. Treasury Department.

Mexican authorities have not responded to the president’s comments.

Trump has already urged the Mexican government to go after the cartels.

Trump’s tweets came on the heels of the murders of nine members of an American family that were gunned down by a drug cartel on the Mexican side of the border.

Mexican authorities tried to float the possibility that the cartel members killed the American family over a case of mistaken identity.

But the LeBaron family has been at odds with the cartels for years, so it is not likely that the cartel soldiers did not know who they were before opening fire.

Federal Appeals Court Throws Out Death Sentence for Marathon Bomber Dzhokhar Tsarnaev

A federal appeals court threw out the death sentence for convicted Marathon bombing terrorist, Dzhokhar Tsarnaev.

Published

on

On Friday, a federal appeals court in Boston made the shocking decision to throw out the death sentence for convicted Marathon bombing terrorist, Dzhokhar Tsarnaev.

The 1st U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals claimed that the original judge in the case did not properly screen the jurors for potential bias.

“A three-judge panel of the 1st U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals ordered a new penalty-phase trial on whether the 27-year-old Tsarnaev should be executed, ” CBS reported.

“But make no mistake: Dzhokhar will spend his remaining days locked up in prison, with the only matter remaining being whether he will die by execution,” the judges said in their decision.

Tsarnaev and his brother killed three people and injured more than 260 others during the April 15, 2013 attack in Boston.

Per CBS:

Tsarnaev’s lawyers acknowledged at the beginning of his trial that he and his older brother, Tamerlan Tsarnaev, set off the two bombs at the marathon finish line. But they argued that Dzhokhar Tsarnaev is less culpable than his brother, who they said was the mastermind behind the attack.

Tamerlan Tsarnaev died in a gunbattle with police a few days after the bombing. Dzhokhar Tsarnaev is now behind bars at a high-security supermax prison in Florence, Colorado.

Tsarnaev was convicted on 30 charges, including conspiracy and use of a weapon of mass destruction.

Tsarnaev’s attorneys claimed to find a list of problems with his trial, but insisted that the “first fundamental error” in the trial was the judge’s refusal to move the case out of Boston. They also claimed some of the jurors posted biased social media posts.

Boston Mayor Marty Walsh said in a statement that “no one can ever take” the city’s strength.

“The Boston community will never forget the tragic events of April 15, 2013. Precious souls were lost, and countless lives were changed forever,” he said in the statement. “Since the first trial, we have always known that the perpetrator of that horrific violence would never leave the four corners of a prison cell. I have always supported the judicial process, and regardless of the ultimate outcome in this case, my focus will always be on supporting the families, the survivors, and all the people of our great city.”

High School Teacher Fired for Tweeting that Black Lives Matter is a ‘Terror’ Organization

A California Catholic high school teacher lost his job for daring to say that the Black Lives Matter movement is a domestic terror outfit.

Published

A California Catholic high school teacher lost his job after school officials bowed to pressure and cast him out for daring to say that the Black Lives Matter movement is a domestic terror outfit.

Timothy Gordon, who until last week taught theology at Garces Memorial High School in Bakersfield, was faced with a backlash from students and some alumni who took umbrage with his characterization of the Black Lives Matter movement.

After students started a petition to have Gordon fired, the school canned the teacher for making “unauthorized” utterances… you know…. as if he had a First Amendment right to do so, or something.

Thing is, he’s right. Black Lives Matter is a socialist-based, anti-American movement that has sponsored murders (CHOP zone), property destruction (every Democrat-controlled city), and riots (again, every Democrat-controlled city).

Sounds like the very definition of terrorism to me.

School officials acted after the student started a petition that garnered almost 300 signatures, according to ABC 23.

The petition claimed Gordon was “spreading unacceptable messages of ignorance and hate on social media and in his classroom.”

“We do not believe that such a person should be granted a platform to teach Garces students. We demand action by the school administration,” the petition added.

Gordon is unrepentant, though.

“They’re essentially saying that my voice, which represents, Catholics, Protestants, and even secular Americans of all races, color and creeds that love America, my voice has no place. And people aren’t going to stand for it,” Gordon said.

He has also hired an attorney to file a wrongful termination lawsuit.

Gordon released a statement saying:

On June 3, 2020, I was wrongfully terminated by the Diocese of Fresno from my teaching position with Garces Memorial High School. The decision was made after I expressed disapproval on Twitter of the recent violent attacks on innocent people by radical groups, and the recent looting and destruction of businesses across the United States.

I called on our country to take action and to use necessary force to protect us from these violent rioters and looters. I am not a racist. As a Christian, I love all races equally: “in Christ there is neither Greek or Jew.” I am a devoted and dedicated husband and father of 6 kids, one of which is recovering from brain surgery. I am a teacher, and I love and support all of my students.

The Diocese’s decision to terminate me was wrongful and a clear breach of my employment contract. The Diocese is discriminating against me because of my conservative political and religious views.

What I have learned from this experience is simple: the Left will stop at nothing to silence and destroy anyone with whom they disagree. They are organized and committed to shutting down debate, silencing speech, and destroying their opponents’ reputations and livelihoods. I will seek justice in the courts.

Just right.

The following is an excerpt of the IA Analytica White Paper The Inevitability of Military Conflict in 2020 published last week.

In a previous White Paper, 150 Days: America in Jeopardy Approaching Election Day, we made the
following conclusion:

In the next five months, from June to Election Day (November 3), the United States is likely to be confronted with a series of events that would not only bring down the Trump Presidency and significantly alter the American political landscape, but have a decades-long impact on the world.

In Undercover Video, Project Veritas Exposes Domestic Terror Group Antifa

In another undercover video, James O’Keefe’s Project Veritas exposes Antifa’s shocking plot to destroy America from the inside.

Published

In another undercover video, James O’Keefe’s Project Veritas exposes Antifa’s shocking plot to destroy America from the inside.

In its new four-minute exposé, PV presents a man who attended an Antifa recruiting session with the Rose City Park, Oregon, branch of the domestic terrorist organization.

Now, the one-time Antifa attendee is ready to spill the beans on the dangerous group.

In the undercover video an Antifa instructor admits that Antifa always intends violence but tries to hide it from the public.

“The whole goal of this thing is to get out there and do dangerous things as safely as possible,” he tells the viewer.

The former Antifa member says that Antifa leaders spend a lot of time teaching new members how to hurt people. He says that they “Practice things like an eye gouge. It takes very little pressure to injure someone’s eyes.”

“Consider destroying your enemy, not like delivering a really awesome right hand, right eye, left-eye blow. It’s not boxing, it’s not kickboxing. It’s like destroying your enemy,” he adds.

He also tells followers to focus on Trump supporters and to continually scream at them to get them to lose their tempers and respond in anger.

The goal of that is to get Trump voters on video saying nasty things — and they hope, racist things.

“If you ruin their day, if you heckle them — if you make them feel like they look ridiculous, make them feel outnumbered — their whole ‘yay yay, America Trump’ thing is gonna go by the wayside,” the Antifa leader says.

The man who took the secret video said that the Antifa group tried to take precautions to make sure what they were saying did not get out.

Attendees were told to “put their phones in the bathroom next door. This bathroom is not only away from the main room where the lecture is taking place, but also has a fan that muffles any sound from the room.”

“They were getting this tradecraft from someone else — someone with much more experience, someone who did this for a living,” the undercover operative then says.

The undercover guy also said that new members are taught how to use weapons.

“They do not hesitate to either push back or incite some kind of violence,” he warned. “In our classes and in our meetings — before we do any sort of demonstration — we talk about weapons detail, what we carry, and what we should have.”

These are left-wing terrorists. They are no different than Islamic extremists.

It’s about time our law enforcement treats them as such.

Joe Biden Promises to Give U.S. Money Back to Palestinians Designated as Terrorists

Joe Biden has promised to restore funds that had been cut from Palestinians who were caught in acts of terror if he becomes president.

Published

Joe Biden has promised to restore funds that had been cut from Palestinians who were caught supporting acts of terror if he were to become president.

The funding was cut by President Donald Trump’s administration after the Palestinians had been determined to be supporters of terrorism.

But as part of his campaign for the White House, Biden promised to restore the funds.

Biden told the Jewish Telegraphic Agency that, “I will reopen the U.S. consulate in East Jerusalem, find a way to re-open the PLO’s diplomatic mission in Washington, and resume the decades-long economic and security assistance efforts to the Palestinians that the Trump Administration stopped.”

Biden didn’t even say that he expected any concessions from the Palestinian terrorists.

Per Breitbart News:

Instead, Biden claimed that reversing Trump’s policies would revive dialogue with the Palestinians toward a two-state solution. But the Obama/Biden administration made no progress toward a two-state solution in eight years, with generous U.S. funding in place and a deliberate policy of “distancing” the U.S. from Israel.

Moreover, Biden failed to mention the reasons the Trump administration took those measures against the Palestinian Authority.

The “decades-long economic and security assistance” was halted for several reasons, one of which was that the Palestinian Authority persists in paying stipends to the families of jailed or dead terrorists. For example, in 2018, President Trump signed the Taylor Force Act — named for an American veteran killed by a Palestinian terrorist in Tel Aviv in 2016. The law which bars the use of U.S. taxpayer funds to support the Palestinian Authority as long as it continues to reward terror. (Biden did not explain how he would repeal that legislation.)

Not only were the Palestinians who Trump defunded supporters of terror, but they also refused to negotiate peace with Israel, another reason Trump cut the funding.

Trump is right. But leave it to a Democrat to be a supporter of Islamic terrorism.

Spread Coronavirus on Purpose? Get Charged with Terrorism!

The DOJ is no longer messing around.

Published

on

While it is unfortunate that it took us a global pandemic to get us to this point, there is some unity brewing among the people of the world.  We no longer see the lines that separate us, whether they be borders drawn on maps or lines in some fiscal chart.  After all, a viral emergency doesn’t care or even acknowledge such man-made classifications.  This particular strain of coronavirus is less than animalistic in its approach:  Infect, kill, repeat.

The only way to win this war is to starve the COVID-19 virus, and that means making ourselves scarce to one another.

Sure, there have been some holdouts, many of whom are doing so idiotically.

For those who go a step further, into purposefully putting others at risk, major consequences could be on the horizon.

In a memo to top Justice Department leaders, law enforcement agency chiefs and U.S. Attorneys across the country, Deputy Attorney General Jeffrey Rosen said prosecutors and investigators could come across cases of “purposeful exposure and infection of others with COVID-19.”

“Because Coronavirus appears to meet the statutory definition of a ‘biological agent’… such acts potentially could implicate the Nation’s terrorism-related statutes,” Rosen wrote. “Threats or attempts to use COVID-19 as a weapon against Americans will not be tolerated.”

The DOJ is also placing an emphasis on those who prey on the supply chain.

The Justice Department has also set up a task force to address hoarding and price gouging related to supplies urgently needed for the fight against the virus.

Attorney General Bill Barr said during a briefing at the White House on Monday that hoarding of supplies like masks would be prosecuted. However, memos issued by Barr and Rosen on Tuesday said the Department of Health and Human Services has yet to formally designate the health-related items the administration wants covered by the Defense Production Act.

The longer it takes the world to unite in taking the correct precautions, the longer this mess will continue.

Rand Paul: Terrorists Killed 70 Americans Because Obama’s Corrupt FBI Dropped the Ball

An inspector general report said that the FBI missed opportunities to stop at least five domestic terrorists who killed 70 Americans.

Published

on

On Wednesday, an inspector general report said that the FBI missed opportunities to stop at least five domestic terrorists who killed 70 American citizens.

“[Inspector General] report finds HVEs (Homegrown Violent Extremists) carried out 20+ attacks (since 9/11) in US, ‘some of which occurred after the FBI closed a counterterrorism investigation. FBI has not taken sufficient action to address weaknesses,” CBS News’ Catherine Herridge said.

Herridge went on saying, “New IG report ‘…we found at least six attacks committed in the United States by individuals who the FBI had previously assessed or investigated…’ including 2009 Fort Hood, 2013 Boston Marathon bombing, 2016 Pulse Nightclub.”

“The FBI has acknowledged that various weaknesses related to its assessment process may have impacted its ability to fully investigate certain counterterrorism assessment subjects, who later committed terrorist acts in the United States,” Justice Department Inspector General Michael Horowitz said in the report.

The FBI “failed to conduct follow-up investigations of people identified as violent extremists,” according to the Washington Times.

The paper noted the following lapses:

  • Omar Mateen, who killed 49 people at the Pulse nightclub in Orlando, Florida, in 2016.
  • Tamerlan Tsarnaev, who killed three people at the Boston Marathon in 2013.
  • Nidal Hasan, who massacred 13 people at Fort Hood, Texas, in 2009.
  • Esteban Santiago, who killed five people in a 2017 attack at the Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport.

Kentucky Senator Rand Paul was furious at the report and ripped former FBI chief James Comey.

“When I asked James Comey after the Pulse mass shooting if in retrospect the FBI concluded too soon that [redacted] was not a threat. The arrogant Comey refused to admit any mistake & maintained the opinion that [redacted] was not a threat. Comey: tell that to the 49 people who died,” Paul wrote on Twitter.

Once again, we see that Obama’s corrupt FBI was as much a danger to this nation as the terrorists themselves.
