Good news! Judge rules “ISIS bride” is not a US citizen

ISIS bride Muthana and her child

Back in February I told you about Hoda Muthana, an American jihadi bride living in a refugee camp after fleeing ISIS’s last stand in Syria. She left Alabama in 2014 in order to join ISIS. She called for US Muslims to ‘spill all of the blood’ by launching terror attacks during Memorial Day events.

She claims she was “brainwashed” and made a big mistake. Read that whole story here.

Muthana then changed her mind and was begging the US to allow her to return home.

Thankfully a judge turned down her request.

NY Post reports that a judge ruled that America is under no obligation to let her back into the country. From their report:

Judge Reggie Walton (appointed by George W. Bush) found there was enough evidence to prove Muthana — the US-born mom who fled her home in Alabama to join the terror group in Syria in 2014 but has been begging to come back to the US — was born while her father was a Yemeni diplomat, BuzzFeed News reported.

The judge said Muthana’s father, Ahmed Ali Muthana, can’t provide financial support to either her or her 2-year-old son, Adam, who was born in ISIS territory, without facing potential charges of providing material support to terrorism.

Christina Jump, one of the lawyers representing the Muthana family, confirmed the judge’s ruling in a statement obtained by The Post.

“While we are disappointed with and disagree with the Court’s ruling today, this is not the end of our client’s legal options. We will wait to read the Court’s written opinion, and will evaluate our available options at that time,” Jump said.

Ahmed claimed in a lawsuit against the Trump administration that he surrendered his diplomatic status on June 2, 1994, months before his daughter was born in Hackensack, New Jersey. Her family said Hoda also had a legitimate passport when she left the US to join ISIS.

The Obama administration initially determined she was not a citizen and notified her family that it was revoking her passport in January 2016.

Babies born in the US are typically granted citizenship, but those born to foreign diplomatic officers are exceptions, under the Immigration and Nationality Act.

In previous interviews, Hoda, 25, has claimed she’s a “changed” woman who no longer holds the same ideology as ISIS followers.

“I hope America doesn’t think I’m a threat to them and I hope they can accept me,” she said in February, speaking from a refugee camp in northern Syria.

“Pacific Islander” doctor arrested for performing unnecessary surgeries on women, including hysterectomies

Dr. Javaid Perwaiz

The good doctor that was arrested is Javaid Perwaiz, 69, of Chesapeake, Virginia. The USMS Norfolk arrested him on Friday and he was booked into the Western Tidewater Regional Jail.

The arresting record describes him as “Asian/Pacific Islander.”

The good doctor is neither of those descriptors – he’s originally from Pakistan.

According to WJLA, the doctor was charged with one count each of health care fraud and making false statements relating to health care matters.

This arrest all began because of a tip from an employee last year to the FBI. WJLA states that the doctor subjected Medicaid patients (four in total) to unwanted procedures including hysterectomies and tubal ligation.

Apparently the affidavit completed by the FBI states that in 2014 a woman learned that Perwaiz had removed her Fallopian tubes without her consent or knowledge.

Scott Daughtery of The Virginian-Pilot has an extensive story about this case including more details about the unwanted/unauthorized procedures. This includes the fact that the arrested doctor was performing so many procedures that hospital staff had a difficult time “keeping up.”

Read the whole scary story here.

From the arrested doctor’s web page:

“Dr. Perwaiz has practiced in the Chesapeake region for over 30 years, providing expert and individualized care to his patients. Personally following each and every patient throughout their pregnancy, he is available 24/7 to meet all of your requests and expectations.

Educated abroad, Dr. Perwaiz has practiced in the Chesapeake Region for over 30 years. He is dedicated to the promotion of healthcare to women from adolescence to menopause and beyond. His training and experience truly qualifies him as an expert in the care of low and high risk pregnancies. He has delivered thousands of healthy babies. His surgical skills are unparalleled, from laparoscopic surgery, cesarean section, hysterectomy, to more complicated gynecologic repair.“

Guess the doctor should have added this caveat to his web page: “Whether you want it or not.”

Italian government gives 3,700% more aid to ‘migrants’ than its own disabled citizens

Have you wondered why the Left support and ally with radical Islam, including working actively to promote and facilitate the importation of Muslim “refugees” into Europe and the U.S.?

The explanation for that strange and unholy alliance goes beyond the adage,  “the enemy of my enemy is my friend”. As pointed out by Dr. Abdessamad Belhaj, a highly regarded scholar of Islam, the Left and Islam share affinities that are structural, not accidental:

  • For the Muslim migrants, the West is a source of economic goodies, including welfare.
  • For Western political elites, Muslim migrants are a means toward political power (via votes); a minimum-wage immigrant workforce with “an impulse” for consumerism, which is the opiate used by the state to control the masses; and globalization, which is why the elites denigrate and oppose nationalism, especially President Trump’s championing of America First and Make America Great Again.

See my posts, “Why the Left encourage the cancer of Muslim migrants” and “UN admits ‘refugees’ are ‘replacement migration’ for Europe and other low-fertility countries”.

Here’s yet another example and illustration of of the unholy alliance of the Left and Islam: Italy’s government gives 3,700% more welfare money to “migrants” than to its own disabled citizens.

Muslim migrants in Italy

Luca Sablone reports for il Giornale.it, January 11, 2019 (Google translation into English here), that each “migrant” is given about 20 Euros (U.S. $22.04) a day — €600 or $661.11 a month — whereas disabled Italian citizens get only 54 cents (€o.54 or $0.60) a day (€16.2o or $18 a month).

Note: By my calculation, “migrants” receive 3,700% more financial aid than disabled Italians.

There are about 3 million disabled people in Italy, 2 million of whom receive disability benefits or a pension. “In some cases, a monthly disability benefit of €1,000 does not allow us to lead a dignified life.”

According to the Jan. 11, 2019 edition of Libero, the government’s draft Budget Law included a Disability and Self-Reliance Fund, which allots €50 million for the year 2020, €200 million for 2021, and €300 million per year beginning 2022. Dividing this figure by Italy’s 3 million “non-ambulatory” disabled, that means the financial aid for every disabled person is 54 Euro-cents per day (€16.2 a month), which is insufficient to pay for even basic needs like transport or clothing.

Although Deputy Prime Minister Matteo Salvini, a Euroskeptic and member of the Northern League political party, reduced the welfare given to “migrants” from €35 to €21-22 a day, the gap between the financial aid given to “migrants” and that given to disabled Italians is still “truly absurd”.

Note: On 24 September 2018, Italy’s Council of Ministers approved the “Salvini Decree”, which contained a series of hardline measures, including the abolition of key forms of protection for migrants, making it easier for them to be deported; as well as the suspension of the refugee application process of migrants who are considered “socially dangerous” or who have been convicted of a crime. On September 5, 2019, Matteo Salvini stepped down as Deputy Prime Minister after announcing a motion of no-confidence against Prime Minister Giuseppe Conte. Political analysts see Salvini’s motion as a move to force a snap election where Salvini could become the next Prime Minister of Italy. (Wikipedia).

President Trump broke them: Media resorts to fact-checking Trump’s honor dog meme

After it was announced that a K-9 military dog played a major role in the Special Ops raid and takedown of ISIS leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, President Trump tweeted an obviously Photoshopped pic that Daily Wire created (above).

Because progressives are seriously infected with TDS and have no sense of humor, the media immediately began their investigation into President Trump’s horribly “fake” tweet. Firefighters to the rescue!

Jim Acosta at CNN made sure to let everyone know that “the dog is not at the WH.”

The New York Times went to bat to request details from the WH on the photo.

Because OrangeManBad, the DNC media tried their hardest to smear President Trump and his dastardly meme. Impeach NOW!

Ben Shapiro, from the Daily Wire, shared these tweets last night:

“So, WaPo asked my business partner, @jeremydboreing, about our Medal of Honor dog meme. His glorious response is screencapped below. Their report then suggested Jeremy refused to answer questions about the picture. Um, no. We just think you’re being f***ing insane.

“Yes, we created the meme. Yes, it is a joke. Yes, you people are also jokes. Please feel free to quote both me and Jeremy on this.”

I can’t imagine how much crazier the left can get if President Trump wins re-election.

Hero: Injured military dog cornered ISIS leader in tunnel

A K-9 military dog played a major role in the Special Ops raid and takedown of ISIS leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi in Syria’s northwestern Idlib province last Saturday evening, Oct. 26, 2019.

The dog is also the only soldier wounded in the raid.

Russ Read reports for the Washington Examiner:

The dog, whose name and breed remain unknown, chased Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi into a tunnel and cornered him. With no place to go, the terrorist leader blew himself up along with three of his children, who he was using as human shields. The dog’s injuries highlighted the importance of military working dogs in special operations. Often, they will enter the danger zone with a camera on their backs before the humans do so.

“The dog is a war veteran and a valued member of the team,” a currently serving soldier assigned to Delta Force told the Washington Examiner. The soldier did not provide details, pending permission from the dog’s handler and chain of command. Everyone involved in the mission is being debriefed and is out of communication for the time being, the soldier said. Within the community, he says, “The injury to the dog is an injury to one of us. These dogs are a special breed of courageous.”

In a tweet on October 28, President Trump declassified an image of the hero dog.

Newsweek reports that “Multiple Defense Department sources confirmed to Newsweek on Monday that the dog’s name is Conan,” and that U.S. Army General Mark A. Milley, chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, told reporters at a Pentagon briefing Monday that the dog was “slightly wounded and fully recovering.”

This was confirmed by Deputy National Security Adviser Victoria Coates. Coates announced on Hugh Hewitt’s radio program yesterday that hero dog Conan will recover.

Daily Wire has another pic of Conan, a male Belgian Malinois:

An open letter to (ret.) Adm. William McRaven from former Army intelligence officer

William H. McRaven, 63, is a retired United States Navy admiral who was nominated by Barack Obama to be the 9th commander of the U.S. Special Operations Command (2011-2014). After he retired from the military, McRaven was the chancellor of the University of Texas system (2015-2018).

In August 2018, McRaven penned an open letter in The Washington Post entitled “Revoke my security clearance, too, Mr. President,” in which the craven retired admiral castigated President Trump for revoking former Obama Administration CIA Director John Brennan’s security clearance. McRaven praised Brennan, a crypto Muslim who once voted for the Communist Party,  as “a man of unparalleled integrity, whose honesty and character have never been in question”. The retired Obama-nominee admiral then scolded President Trump that through his actions, Trump had “embarrassed us in the eyes of our children, humiliated us on the world stage and, worst of all, divided us as a nation.” Never mind the fact that Trump’s revocation of Brennan’s security clearance was in August 2018, one-and-a-half-years after the unceasing efforts by Democrats and “never-Trump” Republicans to divide America with their opposition and even threats of assassination against a duly-elected sitting President.

Most recently, on October 17, 2019, McRaven poison-penned an op-ed in The New York Times with the hysterical headline, “Our Republic Is Under Attack From the President,” bellowing that if Trump did not demonstrate leadership, the sooner he is replaced, the better. In a CNN interview the same day, McRaven said Trump was undermining domestic institutions and damaging America’s international standing because of the President’s decision to withdraw U.S. forces from Syria.

Below is an Open Letter to McRaven, dated August 17, 2018, from Ray Starmann, the editor-in-chief of U.S. Defense Watch, former U.S. Army captain and intelligence officer, and combat veteran of the 7th Cavalry:

Dear Admiral McRaven:

Your op-ed yesterday, which was picked up by every liberal media outlet in the country, was sadly indicative of the current state of mind of many of our nation’s recently retired and active duty senior military leaders.

You stated that former CIA director John Brennan, “is one of the finest public servants I have ever known. Few Americans have done more to protect this country than John. He is a man of unparalleled integrity, whose honesty and character have never been in question, except by those who don’t know him.”

The man whom you describe as being a cross between George Washington, Abraham Lincoln and Mother Theresa is a deep state hack; who, along with other Obama holdouts, is openly and aggressively pursuing a coup d’etat against the current President of the United States, for one reason and one reason only – his side lost the election.

Frankly, I can’t think of any actions that are more un-American, and against the values that Americans hold dear and that which so many Americans died for in the past.

What you call unparalleled integrity, I call honest to goodness treason.

Former CIA director Brennan, whom you state has honesty and character authorized the CIA to spy on American citizens, tried to rig a Presidential election and then lied to Congress about that spying. A man you claim has unparalleled integrity was caught fabricating stories about attacks on US personnel in Libya and providing weapons to ISIS backed militias in Syria.

Mr. Brennan also voted once for a communist candidate. How Mr. Brennan was hired as DCI after voting for a communist and why you support a man who once did, is a mystery to everyone but you and God.

Former members of the special operations community do not share your adoration for Mr. Brennan. Kris “Tanto” Paronto, a former Army Ranger and private security contractor who was part of the CIA team that fought back during the 2012 Benghazi terror attack, accused Brennan of putting his “politics” before those in the field.

On Twitter, Paronto stated: “My principles are greater than clearances too John Brennan, especially when you and the @CIA kool-aid drinkers punishes us for not going along with the Benghazi cover-up story in order to protect you, @HillaryClinton’s & @BarackObama’s failures. You put your politics before us.” 

Mr. Brennan was recently referred to by retired Army Brigadier General Anthony Tata as a ‘clear and present danger’ to the nation.

No doubt John Brennan’s complete absence of integrity and his erratic behavior are what convinced the President to revoke his clearance. Mr. Brennan stated that “Trump’s … performance in Helsinki, exceeds the threshold of ‘high crimes & misdemeanors.’ It was … treasonous.”

In a recent article, Pat Buchanan stated that had Brennan made the same accusations of treason against former President Andrew Jackson, ‘he would have been challenged to a duel and shot.’

As you know sir, on the security clearance form, Question 29 reads, ‘have you ever supported overthrowing the U.S. Government?’

I think it’s more than apparent, from his nightly rantings on CNN to his Twitter expletives that John Brennan supports over-throwing the President and the current cabinet members of the US government.

You also wrote, sir, in reference to the President, “Through your actions, you have embarrassed us in the eyes of our children, humiliated us on the world stage and, worst of all, divided us as a nation,”

Actually, Admiral, the only person who has humiliated the US on the world stage in the last decade is Barack Hussein Obama. During the eight years of the Obama administrations, the world watched as the US cow-towed to Iranian thugs, let the Chinese run rings around us in the Pacific, while ISIS murdered tens of thousands of innocent people in the Middle East. Believe me, Admiral, the children of Syria and Iraq are rejoicing in their liberation from ISIS mass murderers. And, the people of the Middle East and across the world are sleeping soundly tonight, knowing that an incompetent, narcissistic maniac like Hillary Clinton isn’t sitting in the Oval Office.

As far as the nation’s current political schism, you need only look at your fellow liberals who are inciting violence and propagating hatred on a daily basis.

You then dared the Commander in Chief to revoke your security clearance.

I’m sure you’re aware of the following regulation in the UCMJ. Retired military officers are subject to the Uniform Code of Military Justice (UCMJ) under Article 2 of the UCMJ, which extends the jurisdiction of military law to “Retired members of a regular component of the armed forces who are entitled to pay.” “Retirees are subject to the UCMJ and may be tried by court-martial for violations … that occurred … while in a retired status.”

Article 88 of the UCMJ criminalizes “contemptuous words against the President, the Vice President, Congress, the Secretary of Defense, the Secretary of a military department, the Secretary of Homeland Security, or the Governor or legislature of any State.”

Something to ponder, sir.

No doubt your op-ed was designed to whip up some more anti-Trump hysteria and to usher you into the political arena. No doubt you are a serving member of the ‘resistance.’ No doubt, you have your eyes on some office space in the capitol building or in the White House. No doubt, you have your eyes on the prize, all at the expense of the nation you once served.

When I read your op-ed, sir, I wondered where and when and why you went wrong. How does someone from a military family, a SEAL, who came of age in the Reagan years; someone who understands what it’s like to be on a team; the camaraderie, the toughness mentally and physically required; someone who grew up reading about people like Patton, MacArthur, Lee, Grant, Teddy Roosevelt and Hal Moore- How does a guy like that end up aligning himself with the party of Pelosi, Sanders and Ocasio-Cortez, and slime like Hillary who was chanting baby killer back at Wellesley, and “too gutless to serve, I hate the military” Bill…?

How does a guy like you still support the destructive policies of Obama, and furthermore, how does a guy like you support Brennan, when you know damned well Brennan was a communist, and that he perjured himself in front of Congress, how does that happen?

You, sir, are representative of what is, in my opinion, as a former Army Captain and combat veteran of the 7th Cavalry, the worst generation of senior leaders this nation has ever fielded. Bar None. The majority of you, were and are what the late Colonel David Hackworth so eloquently described as ‘perfumed princes.’

It doesn’t matter how many degrees you have; how many combat tours you did and how much fruit salad you earned. It doesn’t matter that you have the SEAL Trident.

Your generation of senior leaders sold and is selling out the nation’s defense to the highest bidder and that bidder is social engineering and leftist ideology. You and your generation of leftist senior leaders have allowed our military to be destroyed for the greater glory of pensions, Tricare and political power, national security be damned. Now, that you’ve overseen the decimation of our military, you are determined to overthrow a sitting President because he represents everything anathema to the left – America First and the fact that the USA IS AND ALWAYS WILL BE THE GREATEST COUNTRY ON THE FACE OF THE EARTH.

You are all nothing more than political hacks; Obama leftists fighting some kind of insurgent anti-Trump campaign like a division of crazed left-wing fanatics holed up in the Beltway National Redoubt, waiting for a last op order from der Fuehrer, Barack Hussein Obama.

I believe sir, that you need to examine your conscience and ask yourself one very important question – what in the name of God Almighty would Hillary Clinton have done for anyone in this country?

The answer is nothing.

More #FakeNews: ABC airs Kentucky gun range video as Turkish “bombing” of Syria

ABC apologized for their “mistake:”

“CORRECTION: We’ve taken down video that aired on “World News Tonight” Sunday and “Good Morning America” this morning that appeared to be from the Syrian border immediately after questions were raised about its accuracy,” the network tweeted. “ABC News regrets the error.”

This was NO MISTAKE. It was an attempt to sway peoples’ opinion about President Trump and his recent actions in Syria.

The MSM is ramping up their attempts to influence the 2020 elections. Don’t be fooled by the #FAKENEWS.

Read about the whole “apology” here.
