The Saudis can skip the TSA security checkpoints
The Obama administration has quietly rewarded the Middle Eastern country that produced most of the 9/11 hijackers with a special travel privilege that allows its nationals to bypass normal passport security controls at major U.S. airports.
Only a handful of U.S. allies—including Canada, Mexico, South Korea and the Netherlands—currently enjoy the perk while other American partners like Germany and France are still excluded. Incredibly, the Obama administration has cut a deal with Saudi Arabia, which produced 15 of the 19 hijackers in the 2001 terrorist attacks, to enjoy the privilege under a program called Global Entry.
It’s not the kind of story you’ll see in the mainstream media, but a research center dedicated to investigating radical Islamic terrorist groups, their operations and funding, brought much-needed attention to it this week. Citing Homeland Security sources, the Investigative Project on Terrorism (IPT) reveals that it will mark the first time that the Saudi government has a direct role in vetting who is eligible for fast-tracked entry into the United States.
This is a “slap in the face,” according to IPT, which posts a number of in-depth reports on its website on topics ranging from American jihadist terrorism to the influence of Islamic law on law enforcement and the Muslim Brotherhood. Among the investigations that relate to this particular issue is a 2011 report documenting how textbooks long used in Saudi Arabia’s schools promote religious violence. Keep in mind that most of the 9/11 terrorist and Osama bin Laden himself were born and educated in Saudi Arabia.
It’s downright outrageous that the Obama administration is now making it easier for Saudis to enter the United States. Consider that just three years ago the U.S. government actually placed Saudi Arabia on a list of 14 countries whose travelers would face enhanced security when entering the country. Why? Because a Saudi national named Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab tried to blow up a Detroit-bound U.S. commercial airliner on Christmas Day in 2009.
Around the same time Judicial Watch reported that a Saudi Arabian “rehabilitation” program that supposedly reforms terrorists jailed at Guantanamo Bay has instead served as a training camp for future jihadists. Regardless, the Obama administration supports the program and has sent a number of Guantanamo detainees its way even though many have rejoined terrorist missions that target Americans.
You, an American citizen, can’t
The Muslim Brotherhood can skip TSA security
Newly released records confirm a 2012 Investigative Project on Terrorism (IPT) report that the State Department cleared the way for a visiting delegation of Muslim Brotherhood officials to enter the country without undergoing routine inspection by U.S. Customs and Border Protection agents.
The April 2012 visit came before the Muslim Brotherhood’s candidate was elected Egypt’s president, although the Brotherhood’s Freedom and Justice Party (FJP) had won a plurality of seats in parliamentary elections. The expedited entry is known as a “port courtesy” normally reserved for high-ranking visiting government officials and dignitaries.
The records, marked “sensitive but unclassified,” were obtained through a Freedom of Information Act request. They offer few details. The State Department released a one-page document labeled “Compiled References to MB Delegation Arrival and Departure” containing four separate communications between March 30 and April 16, 2012 about the Brotherhood delegation. It is not clear who wrote them or who received them.
“In the coming days, we’re going to write down a list of procedures for dealing with MB visits to the United States,” an April 16, 2012 entry says.
A March 30 communication offers help dealing with “FJP Delegation and POE [port of entry] Courtesies: Please let the desk know over the weekend if you’d like our help submitting to DHS the ‘Special Alerts,’ which are used to request that travelers not be pulled into secondary [inspection] upon arrival at a point of entry.”
But one member of the Brotherhood delegation, which met with U.S. academic and senior government officials, had been linked to a child pornography investigation in the United States years earlier. Under normal circumstances, he likely would have been subjected to extra scrutiny.
You, an American citizen, can’t.
A Muslim who tries to blow up an airliner or say, Boston, cannot be identified as a Muslim.
The Justice Department will significantly expand its definition of racial profiling to prohibit federal agents from considering religion, national origin, gender and sexual orientation in their investigations, a government official said Wednesday.
A Latino illegal alien who kills an American citizen cannot be identified as a Latino
See if you can find the idiocy in the following quote:
The move addresses a decade of criticism from civil rights groups that say federal authorities have in particular singled out Muslims in counterterrorism investigations and Latinos for immigration investigations.
How many terrorist investigation don’t involve Muslims?
How many illegal aliens are not Latinos?
National Security be damned
The Bush administration banned profiling in 2003, but with two caveats: It did not apply to national security cases, and it covered only race, not religion, ancestry or other factors.
Since taking office, Attorney General Eric H. Holder Jr. has been under pressure from Democrats in Congress to eliminate those provisions.
Following the above guidelines, write your own BOLO for these perps and suspects:
Does anyone think having only one of these images would be ideal?
These illegals “allegedly” gang-raped a 13 year old girl:
The suspects reportedly described their deeds as a “dream act.”
Edwin Ramos, murderer of three
And who about this guy- who was arrested for criminal trespass and for contributing to the delinquency of a minor?
It is, of course, acceptable to identify suspects by race if it’s the right one:
I’ve written about this issue for years online. I got a big break in 2007. The LA Times issued an official online statement admitting that it was standard practice in the newspaper industry to censor of the race of minority crime perpetrators.
In the past year, a multitude of media bosses have publicly confessed to censoring black crime. Some of them proudly confess, and say that the censorship is for the public’s benefit. Some of them even call critics “racists” for asking for accurate news coverage.
The state of California offers in-state college tuition rates for illegal aliens. The children of long time taxpaying US citizens are not entitled to the same rights.
Free Transportation for the children of illegals
The Obama Administration is under suspicion for allegedly helping to smuggle children of illegal immigrants across the United States border. Fox News reports that Sen. David Vitter (R-LA) wrote a letter to new Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson questioning the policy.
I am shocked to learn that the federal government is a participant in an international human smuggling conspiracy. I cannot imagine a case in which such a policy would be in accordance with the established mission of the Department, particularly since this encourages additional smuggling and the sometimes extreme abuse of the smuggled children involved.
Last month, a federal judge in Texas, U.S. District Judge Andrew S. Hanen, stated that immigration agents were catching smugglers trying to bring children of illegal immigrants across the U.S.-Mexico border, and then the immigration agents were delivering the children to their parents. Hanen said the actions of the agents aided human traffickers and the drug cartels.
I can’t get Obama to provide my kids free transportation.
An illegal alien just completed 12 surgeries and a record 374-day stay in a Fresno hospital. For him, it was “free” health care. But for taxpayers, the hospital and patients who ultimately pay, it’s another big bill.
Marco Antonio Fuentes had high praise the staff at Community Regional Medical Center who heroically saved his life after he came down with necrotic pancreatitis, a condition that destroyed his intestines. A medical team there rebuilt his gastrointestinal tract, monitored his progress and provided the best of care to him for more than a year.
And the cost? Somewhere in the millions, by all estimates. As an illegal immigrant, he didn’t have to pay a thing. The taxpayers, the charity unit and the other patients will have to foot that bill. Fuentes didn’t have a word of thanks for them.
American citizens have to pay for their health care.
Call it a loophole, tax fraud, or government at its most outrageous, but it’s got to stop.
The federal government is currently handing out $4.2 billion in taxpayer-funded checks a year to illegal immigrants.
This isn’t some service benefit that illegal immigrants are receiving like taxpayer-subsidized healthcare or education. And it’s not a tax deduction or credit that requires the recipient to actually pay any taxes. It’s a taxpayer-funded check from the federal government via the refundable Child Tax Credit program. And there’s absolutely no proof required that the recipient actually be eligible under the law, which illegal immigrants are not.
Abuse of this tax benefit is one of the most ridiculous factors adding to our country’s federal deficit today. Equally harmful, it is acting as a powerful incentive for more illegal immigrants to come to America — a magnet for more and more illegal crossings and activity.
Taxpaying citizens? Screw you.
The taxpaying citizens of this country are cash cows for democrat largesse. And they said illegals could not collect Social Security.[youtube]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SXDhMvFoXrc[/youtube]
We citizens are treated like criminals at TSA checkpoints while foreign Muslims can skip them and illegals demand we open our wallets for them. What exactly is the point of being a citizen any more?
