Dem Rep: 40 ISIS Fighters Have Returned to the US (Video)

Rep. Tim Bishop (D-NY) told an audience last week that up to 100 Americans have joined the fight with ISIS in Syria-Iraq. Bishop also said 40 of those who left the country have returned to the US.

“ISIS is a very, very complex and very, very dangerous threat… It clearly is a threat to the stability of the Middle East and a region that is already remarkably unstable… One of the concerns is the number of US citizens who have left our country to go and join ISIS. I believe there have been some number, up to a hundred that have done that. It is also believed that some 40 of those who left this country to join up with ISIS have now returned to our country. Those 40 are under FBI attention.”

The Washington Free Beacon reported:

Rep. Tim Bishop (D., N.Y.) warned during a recent speech that up to 40 radicalized U.S. citizens who have fought alongside the Islamic State of Iraq and Levant (ISIL or ISIS) have already returned to the United States, where they could pose a terrorist threat.

Bishop claims that of the 100 or so Americans who have traveled to the Middle East to join ISIL’s ranks, some 40 have returned and are currently being surveilled by the FBI, according to his remarks, which were filmed and uploaded to YouTube last week.

SBS.com reported, via Religion of Peace:

Signs reading “terror raids cannot break the spirit of Muslims” and “stop terrorising Muslims” were waived by about 10 people among the 200 who rallied in western Sydney to demonstrate against a series of pre-dawn anti-terrorism raids.

The protesters met outside Lakemba train station on Thursday night for the snap action, organised via social media.

About 50 people were watching from across the road.

The event was promoted under a banner featuring the hardline organisation Hizb Ut-Tahrir and is calling on the Muslim community to “stand as one” against “government aggression”.

“Women, children should be safe from the terror of the state,” they chanted.

The signs had small Hizb Ut-Tahrir Australia logos.

The atmosphere was calm with most people arriving and greeting friends and acquaintances before quietly congregating in a little park next to the train station.

The rally comes after after 15 people were detained during Australia’s largest counter-terrorism operation.

“We’re not hear to disrupt security,” Hizb Ut-Tahrir speaker Uthman Badar told the crowd.

“Muslims are as much concerned about security and peace as everyone else.”

The Muslim community would be “fools” if they were deceived by the spin being used to politicise security issues, he added.

Australian police released video of the terrorist raids this week.

Russia’s Putin Privately Threatened to Invade Poland, Romania and Baltic States

Russian President Vladimir Putin privately threatened to invade Poland, Romania and the Baltic states, in conversation with Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko this week.

Despite the latest threats, Barack Obama refused to arm Ukraine this week.
Obama wants a diplomatic solution to the crisis.
Unreal.

The Telegraph reported:

President Vladimir Putin privately threatened to invade Poland, Romania and the Baltic states, according to a record of a conversation with his Ukrainian counterpart.

“If I wanted, in two days I could have Russian troops not only in Kiev, but also in Riga, Vilnius, Tallinn, Warsaw and Bucharest,” Mr Putin allegedly told President Petro Poroshenko of Ukraine, reported Süddeustche Zeitung, a German newspaper.

If true, this would be the first time that Mr Putin has threatened to invade Nato or EU members. Any threat to send Russian troops into the capitals of Latvia, Lithuania, Estonia, Poland and Romania would cause grave alarm among Western leaders.

If Mr Putin were to act on this, Britain could find itself at war with Russia. All five countries mentioned in this alleged conversation are members of both the EU and Nato. They are covered by the security guarantee in Article V of Nato’s founding treaty, which states that “an attack on one is an attack on all”. In a speech in Tallinn earlier this month, President Barack Obama confirmed Nato’s commitment to this doctrine.

GOP Lawmaker: Border Patrol Caught Same Illegal Alien Crossing into US 44 Times (Video)

On Friday, Rep. Jason Chaffetz (R-UT) spoke at the annual Eagle Forum in St. Louis, Missouri. Chaffetz told the audience about the open US border with Mexico.

If you’re a Mexican they’re going to take a picture, take your fingerprints, give you a drink of water, and then get you in a van, or whatever it is and send you back across. Now, is there any consequence for coming across multiple times? In fact, I asked these officers and one officer told me, he said, “I caught the same guy 44 times.” Do you know how expensive it is for you and I to pay for that? 44 times. There’s no consequence for coming across. So, you might as well keep trying.

Former Defense Secretary Panetta: I “Really, Really Thought” We Should Keep Some US Troops in Iraq (Video)

Former Obama Defense Secretary and CIA Director Leon Panetta told CBS News that some U.S. troops should have remained in Iraq. Panetta spoke with Scott Pelley in a segment that aired Friday.

Scott Pelley: Were you confident in that moment that pulling out was the right thing to do?

Leon Panetta: No, I wasn’t. I really, I really thought that it was important for us to maintain a presence in Iraq.

But, Barack Obama overruled Panetta and withdrew all troops from Iraq in 2012 – one of the biggest foreign policy errors in US history.

Rep. Chaffetz: “It’s True” – Terrorists Were Captured at US Border This Month & “They’re Still Being Detained” (Video)

On Wednesday, Congressman Jason Chaffetz broke the the story that four known terrorists were apprehended at the US border in Texas on September 10th – the day before the 13th anniversary of the 9-11 attacks.

Chaffetz questioned Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson earlier Wednesday on whether he was “aware of any apprehensions of suspected or known terrorists” on the border.
Johnson dodged the question.

Rep. Chaffetz told Megyn Kelly on Wednesday night there were four terrorists arrested crossing the US border in Texas on September 10.

There were actually four individuals trying to cross through the Texas border, who were apprehended at two different stations, that do have ties to known terrorist organizations in the Middle East.

On Friday, Rep. Jason Chaffetz spoke at the annual Eagle Forum in St. Louis, Missouri. Chaffetz told the audience.

“Ladies and gentlemen, it’s true. It’s true. It did happen. They’re still being detained. I can’t give you any more details. There are things that our intelligence agencies have to do to try and figure out some things. The men and women who serve on our borders they have an incredible job.”

After his speech Rep. Chaffetz told The Gateway Pundit that he could not say anything more about the terrorist bust at this time. Congressman Chaffetz did say they were still being detained.

Breaking: Houston Man Wearing ISIS Logo Spotted at Jason’s Deli

A post taken at Jason’s Deli on west 34th and 290 in Houston is making the rounds on Facebook and Reddit.

The man is clearly wearing an ISIS logo on his black robe.
jason deli isis
The unknown man was wearing a black Islamic robe with the Islamic State logo embroidered on the right shoulder.

Local ABC reported:

Eyewitness News has been working to get some real answers or responses about the picture that’s going around, but it’s more difficult than you may think. The picture shows a man supposedly wearing an ISIS logo at a Houston restaurant.

We contacted Houston police, who referred us to the FBI. The FBI told us they know about this story, but they were not aware of any arrests being made and were also unaware of any specific credible threats within the Houston territory.

So for now, a lot about the picture remains unknown, but it’s definitely got a lot of people talking.

Recently in Houston, two ISIS supporters terrified members of a Shiite mosque when they interrupted prayer services by screaming orders that the Shiites “repent” from their beliefs and join “the right way” under the leadership of Abu Bakr Baghdadi.

Ebola Patients Turn to Black Market – Buy Up Survivor’s Blood to Treat Disease (Video)

Survivor’s blood is selling like hotcakes on the black market in West Africa.
Ebola patients believe it will help them beat the disease.

The World Health Organization announced earlier this month that survivor’s blood could be used to treat patients infected by Ebola.

Russia Today reported:

As the deadly Ebola virus continues to ravage a wide swath of Western Africa, some of the infected are turning to an illicit trade in survivors’ blood, despite warnings from the World Health Organization.

Having already killed 2,400 people and infected nearly 5,000 others, and with no cure in sight, the Ebola virus has triggered the growth of a black market in what is known as convalescent serum, the protein base of blood that has been collected from survivors of the epidemic, according to the World Health Organization (WHO)

The serum is considered to be especially rich in antibodies that fight against the disease, and has already been administered to some patients, including Rick Sacra, an American health worker who has received transfusions from a survivor of the deadly virus.

“We are supporting use of whole blood and convalescent serum to manage Ebola virus disease in the West African Ebola outbreak,” WHO spokeswoman Margaret Harris told Politico. “Whole blood has already been used in a number of centers.”

Michelle O: Americans “Take For Granted” How Much Barack Has Improved the US (Barf Alert)

First Lady Michelle Obama defended her husband’s presidency at a Washington fundraiser on Thursday.
Michelle O said Americans “take for granted” how much Barack has improved the US.
Unbelievable.

michelle o frown

Barack Obama’s approval rating dropped to a new low rating this week. And, Obama gets worse marks on handling the economy and foreign policy than Bush did in 2006.

Breitbart reported:

First Lady Michelle Obama proudly defended her husband’s record at a Washington, D.C. fundraiser, reminding the attendants how far the country had come since the Obamas entered the White House.

“Just think about how different our country looks to children growing up today,” she said. “Think about how our kids take for granted that a black person or a woman can be President of the United States.”

She also praised President Obama for changing history on gay marriage and the Supreme Court.

“They take it for granted that for the first time in history, there are three brilliant women serving on our Supreme Court,” she said. “They take for granted that their president will end hurtful policies like ‘don’t ask, don’t tell,’ they’ll speak out for gay marriage.

The First Lady emphasized her continued belief in the hope and change that they promised in 2008.

“Today, when folks ask me whether I still believe everything we said about change and hope back in 2008, I tell them that I believe it more strongly now than ever before, because, look, I’ve seen it with my own eyes,” she said, citing Obamacare, the stimulus, and the auto bailout.

Here are a few facts on the Obama presidency.

Senate Democrats Vote to Approve Obama Amnesty

democrats senate 2014

Senate Democrats voted to approve Obama’s amnesty plan on Thursday.
Fifty Democrats blocked legislation that would denied Obama’s post-election amnesty.
National Review reported:

Senate Democrats succeeded in blocking a vote on President Obama’s promised post-election executive orders providing administrative amnesty to illegal immigrants — but only by the barest of margins.

Senator Jeff Sessions (R., Ala.) wanted to offer an amendment opposing the orders, but Senate Democrats thwarted the attempt.

“I am going to make a motion that would allow this Senate to block the President’s planned executive amnesty,” Sessions said Thursday afternoon. “This is a common Senate action. If you believe we are sovereign nation, with the right to control our own borders, then you must vote ‘yes.’ If you believe America is an oligarchy, run by a group of special interests meeting in the White House to rewrite our immigration laws, then vote ‘no.’”

Fifty senators voted for Sessions’ motion and fifty voted against, so the proposal failed.

Four embattled Democratic lawmakers — North Carolina senator Kay Hagan, Louisiana senator Mary Landrieu, New Hampshire senator Jeanne Shaheen, and Arkansas senator Mark Pryor — voted with Sessions after opposing the same motion earlier this year. Senator Joe Manchin (D., W.Va.) voted with Sessions both times.

White Press Secretary Josh Earnest told reporters in September President Obama will take action on amnesty before the end of the year but after the November election.
