I don't know what alter universe or other planet the people who have been defending Hillary Clinton have been living on for the last quarter of century. Some writers say there has been no proof that she has cheated, lied or caused harm to anyone.
I guess those individuals had no access to television or other media when the Director of the F.B.I repeatedly stated that she had been untruthful in denying there were classified documents on her e-mails.
I guess they did not know that Mrs. Clinton had signed a Federal document promising to turn over all e-mails to the National Archives when she left the Secretary of State's position. Or that this document said it was a crime to do official business on a private e-mail system, let alone your own private server, hidden in your basement.
I guess these apologists didn't know that Mrs. Clinton's State Department had turned down literally hundreds of requests to reinforce security at the Benghazi Consulate and that they refused for over nine hours to send help to the Consulate on the night of the attack.
You know they refused sending help, saying that help would not arrive in time, but they never knew how long the attack would take place. Then, when the flag covered coffins of those killed in Benghazi were at last brought home, Hillary Clinton took to the podium and lied to the families of those brave slain American heroes and to the American public about the causes of the attack.
Since 2009, Mrs. Clinton and her husband have enriched the Clinton Foundation by almost 2 Billion dollars in what is widely considered a pay- for -play operation.
During her term as Secretary of State, individuals and even Foreign governments would donate Millions of dollars to the Clinton Foundation and would often receive favorable treatment from Secretary of State Clinton and her office, One such action involved Russian interests giving the Clinton Foundation tens of Millions of dollars in return for ownership of 20% of all American Uranium deposits..
Those who defend the Clinton Foundation point to the good works of the Foundation but neglect to tell the public that the Foundation reportedly only spends one out of every ten dollars received on charitable works, pocketing the rest.
There was the rigging of the Democratic Presidential primaries where the DNC Chairman Debbie Wasserman Schultz was forced to resign and was immediately hired by Hillary Clinton to work on her general election campaign.
These, out of the Universe, people tout Mrs. Clinton's Foreign Affairs experience, neglecting to realize that every foreign affairs experience she had was a disaster for the United States.
There was the Re-Set button with Russia ,where she claimed there was a new working relationship with Russia. How did that work out? Russia annexed Crimea, threatens the rest of the Ukraine and along with Syria and Iran control virtually the entire Middle East.
She said President Assad of Syria was moderate and someone we could work with. How did that turn out?. President Assad has been responsible for the deaths of hundreds of thousands of Syrians.
These supporters of Mrs. Clinton should take the next rocket ship back to Earth and see what is really going on in the world. And maybe they can bring back the main stream media with them.

The debate about gun rights sparked by President Obama’s recent executive actions and his town hall meeting of January 7, 2016, has brought to light several popular misconceptions, of which the following are some of the more egregious.
WOW: Secret Hillary Video Explodes… She Just Lost Every Single BLM Voter
Democrat presidential nominee Hillary Clinton has always been a flawless example of hypocrisy, condescension and arrogance. Occasionally, these attributes shine through even brighter than usual, reminding us of just how morally corrupt she is.
For the past several weeks, Democrats and their supporters in the liberal media have triumphantly proclaimed the presidential race to be all but over, self-assuredly declaring Democrat presidential nominee Hillary Clinton the presumptive victory over Republican nominee Donald Trump.

Seeing some people out here saying they have had it with politics. Done with it. Tired of it. No more political posts.
Well, I'll tell you. The enemies of America want you to be right there, retreating, tired, exhausted, frustrated, angry, folding your arms and stepping back. GIVING UP. This is exactly what they wanted and desired.... to beat down the opposition into defeat, no fight, no spreading the truth, shutting down.
We are closing in on a major battle with the November election, and you think NOW is the time to quit? Submit? Default? GIVE UP ????
Sure, you stand up for something, you're going to get knocked back and verbally abused, BUT YOU DO IT ANYWAY. You do it for the good of all, even those knocking you down and verbally abusing you. You look beyond the thorns and push through the brush and work for a cleared and clean land once again. You do it for future generations. You do it to look back and be able to say, "Lord, you revealed the truth to me. I did my best to defend You, truth, and expose and rebuke evil for the good of all." You did not hide the truths God revealed to you under a barrel. You shined the light on darkness and did not surrender to the forces attacking and fighting you. YOU FOUGHT ON. YOU DIDN'T QUIT. YOU SOUGHT THE STRENGTH GOD PROMISED YOU EACH NEW DAY TO BATTLE EVIL, LIES, UNTRUTHS, AND THOSE WHO WORK FOR THE PRINCE OF THIS EARTH.
You will be held accountable one day for your choices and those consequences they created. Will you fight for God and what is good and right and against those who lie and cheat and deceive and fool and create hate, division and destruction for all? Will you pick up the sword of truth and good and participate in the biggest battle raging in America as evil has taken over our government? IF YOU DON'T, MANY MORE WILL BE HURT OR KILLED.
Beware of Satan's deceiving whispers in your ears and mind and heart to step back, give it up, you aren't making a difference, people don't like you or care what you think or say, and the worse is "you can't make a difference and you are not making a difference." He'll tell you you're defeated already and the battle is over.
WHO ARE YOU LISTENING TO? THE GOD OF HEAVEN'S ARMIES working His will, His way, and His timing or the great liar who tells you that you are already defeated?
Get back to "watching the wall," Americans. Leaving it empty, leaves evil a path to consume, devour, destroy.
THIS IS MASSIVE!!!! Mike Pence Just Send HUGE MESSAGE To Hillary – Nobody DARED To Say This!
Mike Pence, Donald Trump’s vice president choice and Indiana Governor, spoke for Breitbart News about Hillary Clinton and called out the DNC nominee, Hillary Clinton on her email scandals, poor health condition,Hillary Clinton and her lying about it as well as other scandals related to her Foundation. What Pence said is that she needs to “come clean” with Americans and “shut down the Clinton Foundation.”
After attending an event in Iowa, pence gave a phone statement and said the following:
This video should be watched by every American. These are the people we are not polling. These are the folks that want their freedoms. They don’t desire handouts. The want a job, they want a home. They just want to exist without interference from the government. If this video was broadcast all over America, Donald Trump would win in a landslide. http://conservativevideos.com/people-not-polled-election-cycle-video/
‘You Can Beat the Pollsters… You Can Beat Washington’
Mr. Farage – who led his party (UKIP) to victory in the 2014 European Parliamentary elections, to a whopping 4m votes in the 2015 UK general election, and mostly importantly, to Britain voting to leave the European Union in 2016 – has used the “People’s Army” moniker to describe his party’s supporters for years.
You see? You hear? IS YOUR MIND OPEN FOR LIES AND CLOSED TO WARNINGS?
Satan uses those he has taken and has them always point to others as bad for what HE AND HIS TAKEN THEMSELVES ARE REALLY ACTUALLY DOING THEMSELVES. Satan is the GRAND LIAR AND DECEIVER. Oh how he can twist situations with a false light to the ungrounded, UNGUARDED, and unstable mind of humans of the world.
How Satan operates hasn't changed since the Garden of Eden. He's a coy, calculating, targeting, deceiving, devouring enemy of your life and soul every second of every day. He is not of flesh and blood, folks. He is the rebel angel of heaven who took many of God's angels with him to defeat God's Way and take God's children with him. Our victory over Satan came with the Cross of Jesus Christ and His resurrection. We get to choose which path we take.... the gift of forgiveness and love from God or the worldly traps set before you each and every day by Satan.
GOD SENT HIS SON, JESUS, TO DEFEAT THIS ENEMY FOR YOU, IF YOU WILL ACCEPT HIS SON AND HIS WAY, AND HIS TRUTHS IN HIS WORD. YOU ARE FREE TO CHOOSE THE GOD OF HEAVEN'S ARMIES OR THE PRINCE OF THIS FALLEN, SINFUL EARTH.
Satan knows all he has now is a short time to take more souls to hell with him and away from God. YOU MUST UNDERSTAND YOU ARE DEALING WITH A POWER NOT OF MEN IN YOUR BATTLE AGAINST SATAN. You need God and His power and provisions and Word and truths to battle this evil force attacking you. SATAN IS NOT FLESH AND BLOOD.
God warns and warns and warns YOU in His Word over and over about Satan your enemy, his ways, his tricks, his ploys, his deception, his lies and the MANY, MANY FALSE LIGHTS that he will take and use among you. NO man on earth, regardless of their position, title, education, wealth, fame or "expert" status, including the title pastor or preacher or bishop or Pope, should be taken blindly as authority FOR THEY, TOO, CAN BE FORCES OF DECEPTION FOR SATAN AS HE HAS TRAPPED MANY AMONG YOU. They, too, are mere flesh and blood capable of the trappings of Satan and being chained by him to influence many others into the traps of their own destruction.
PLEASE BEWARE of those voices among you spewing lies about people and issues. And be aware of your first reactions to the warnings you hear... Do you first ask yourself could it be so? Do you think for yourself and take an good look at the reality in front of you? Their "fruits," not just their words? DO YOU GO TO GOD'S WORD AND IN PRAYER AND SEEK WHAT GOD SAYS ABOUT IT? Is your first response in hearing a warning that goes against an established thought you've ingrained in your mind to ATTACK THE MESSENGER?
Then if so, Satan already has your mind gripped. To close your mind completely to warnings gives evil full throttle run over your mind, and you won't even realize it as you can be used to create more pain and destruction on others and for YOUR REAL MASTER, Satan.
Do not be deceived. If you think you can't be fooled or taken by false voices, then again Satan has you trapped in his lies. Don't underestimate the supernatural power of Satan and the power he can gain over you, and you not even know it.
And I know as I write this, I am shining a light on the darkness, and it always draws attacks back. THOSE SPREADING GOD'S WORD AND WARNING KNOW TO EXPECT OPPOSITION FROM SATAN AND THOSE HE HAS TAKEN. If your first thoughts are not examining your choices after hearing warnings, but attacking the messenger, stop now and reject and rebuke the great liar who uses you to hurt others and for the destruction of love among us. If you go on and decide attacking the messenger is what you must do, then Satan has you fully chained to do his destructive works NOW and pull you deeper and deeper in the darkness that will completely shut down any other voices that would warn and seek to pull you into God's truths. The doors of your mind will be closed by your own choices of rejecting God's warning and instead choosing your "own" way. Truth is, you THINK it is your own way and you know best, but Satan has convinced you in your pride that you know best when all along, even he knows it is your fall.
YOU GET TO CHOOSE, PEOPLE. GOD LETS YOU CHOOSE YOUR LIFE NOW AND YOUR ETERNAL DESTINY. Are you filled with hate, anger, revenge, division, selfish desires that could hurt others but you dismiss them, a desire to hurt those who warn you against your real enemy, Satan? When you deny the existence of Satan and his taken workers around you, YOU GIVE THEM POWER TO TAKE YOUR OWN SOUL AND OTHERS, AND SPREAD MORE HARM AND DESTRUCTION FOR YOURSELVES AND OTHERS. I pray that you will examine your hearts and minds and see if you have guarded them against the many false lights, the many taken people today, who are using their positions to lie to you to further your destruction and further separate you from your heavenly Father. FREE YOUR MIND FROM SELF AND FILL IT WITH THE HOLY SPIRIT, EXAMINE YOUR CHOICES WITH THE LIGHT OF TRUTH AND GOD'S WORD, AND CHANGE YOUR PATH NOW if you find you have left God's blessed path for your life now and your eternal future.

This is one SCARY read. A bit long but, explicit about what is going on in Europe. The Lights are going out all over Europe A very important read.
It's Lights Out In Europe
Geert Wilders is a Dutch Member of Parliament . In a generation or two, the US will ask itself: "Who lost Europe?"
Here is a speech by Wilders, Chairman, Party for Freedom, the Netherlands, at the Four Seasons, New York, introducing an “Alliance of Patriots” and announcing the “Facing Jihad” Conference in Jerusalem. The Lights are Going Out All Over Europe Dear Friends, Thank you very much for inviting me. I come to America with a mission. All is not well in the old world. There is a tremendous danger looming, and it is very difficult to be optimistic. We might be in the final stages of the Islamization of Europe. This not only is a clear and present danger to the future of Europe itself, it is a threat to America and the sheer survival of the West. The United States as the last bastion of Western civilization, facing an Islamic Europe.
First I will describe the situation on the ground in Europe. Then, I will say a few things about Islam. To close I will tell you about a meeting in Jerusalem. The Europe you know is changing.
You have probably seen the landmarks. But in all of these cities, sometimes a few blocks away from your tourist destination, there is another world. It is the world of the parallel society created by Muslim mass-migration.
All throughout Europe a new reality is rising: entire Muslim neighborhoods where very few indigenous people reside or are even seen. And if they are, they might regret it. This goes for the police as well. It's the world of head scarves, where women walk around in figureless tents, with baby strollers and a group of children. Their husbands, or slaveholders if you prefer, walk three steps ahead. With mosques on many street corners.
The shops have signs you and I cannot read. You will be hard-pressed to find any economic activity. These are Muslim ghettos controlled by religious fanatics. These are Muslim neighborhoods, and they are mushrooming in every city across Europe. These are the building-blocks for territorial control of increasingly larger portions of Europe, street by street, neighborhood by neighborhood, city by city. There are now thousands of mosques throughout Europe With larger congregations than there are in churches. And in every European city there are plans to build super-mosques that will dwarf every church in the region. Clearly, the signal is: we rule.
Many European cities are already one-quarter Muslim: just take Amsterdam, Marseilles and Malmo in Sweden. In many cities the majority of the under-18 population is Muslim. Paris is now surrounded by a ring of Muslim neighborhoods. Mohammad is the most popular name among boys in many cities.
In some elementary schools in Amsterdam the farm can no longer be mentioned, because that would also mean mentioning the pig, and that would be an insult to Muslims.
Many state schools in Belgium and Denmark only serve halal food to all pupils. In once-tolerant Amsterdam gays are beaten up almost exclusively by Muslims. Non-Muslim women routinely hear 'whore, whore'. Satellite dishes are not pointed to local TV stations, but to stations in the country of origin.
In France school teachers are advised to avoid authors deemed offensive to Muslims, including Voltaire and Diderot; the same is increasingly true of Darwin. The history of the Holocaust can no longer be taught because of Muslim sensitivity.
In England sharia courts are now officially part of the British legal system. Many neighborhoods in France are no-go areas for women without head scarves. Last week a man almost died after being beaten up by Muslims in Brussels, because he was drinking during the Ramadan.
Jews are fleeing France in record numbers, on the run for the worst wave of anti-Semitism since World War II. French is now commonly spoken on the streets of Tel Aviv and Netanya, Israel. I could go on forever with stories like this. Stories about Islamization.
A total of fifty-four million Muslims now live in Europe. San Diego University recently calculated that a staggering 25 percent of the population in Europe will be Muslim just 12 years from now. Bernhardt Lewis has predicted a Muslim majority by the end of this century.
Now these are just numbers. And the numbers would not be threatening if the Muslim-immigrants had a strong desire to assimilate. But there are few signs of that. The Pew Research Center reported that half of French Muslims see their loyalty to Islam as greater than their loyalty to France. One-third of French Muslims do not object to suicide attacks. The British Centre for Social Cohesion reported that one-third of British Muslim students are in favor of a worldwide caliphate. Muslims demand what they call 'respect'. And this is how we give them respect. We have Muslim official state holidays. The Christian-Democratic attorney general is willing to accept sharia in the Netherlands if there is a Muslim majority.
We have cabinet members with passports from Morocco and Turkey. Muslim demands are supported by unlawful behavior, ranging from petty crimes and random violence, for example against ambulance workers and bus drivers, to small-scale riots. Paris has seen its uprising in the low-income suburbs, the banlieus. I call the perpetrators settler's. Because that is what they are. They do not come to integrate into our societies; they come to integrate our society into their Dar-al-Islam. Therefore, they are settlers. Much of this street violence I mentioned is directed exclusively against non-Muslims, forcing many native people to leave their neighborhoods, their cities, their countries. Moreover, Muslims are now a swing vote not to be ignored.
The second thing you need to know is the importance of Mohammed the prophet. His behavior is an example to all Muslims and cannot be criticized. Now, if Mohammed had been a man of peace, let us say like Gandhi and Mother Theresa wrapped in one, there would be no problem. But Mohammed was a warlord, a mass murderer, a pedophile, and had several marriages—at the same time. Islamic tradition tells us how he fought in battles, how he had his enemies murdered and even had prisoners of war executed. Mohammad himself slaughtered the Jewish tribe of Banu Qurayza. If it is good for Islam, it is good. If it is bad for Islam, it is bad.
Let nobody fool you about Islam being a religion. Sure, it has a god, and a hereafter, and 72 virgins. But in its essence Islam is a political ideology. It is a system that lays down detailed rules for society and the life of every person. Islam wants to dictate every aspect of life. Islam means 'submission'. Islam is not compatible with freedom and democracy, because what it strives for is Sharia. If you want to compare Islam to anything, compare it to communism or national-socialism, these are all totalitarian ideologies.
Now you know why Winston Churchill called Islam 'the most retrograde force in the world', and why he compared Mein Kampf to the Quran. The public has wholeheartedly accepted the Palestinian narrative, and sees Israel as the aggressor. I have lived in this country and visited it dozens of times. I support Israel. First, because it is the Jewish homeland after two thousand years of exile up to and including Auschwitz. Second because it is a democracy. And third because Israel is our first line of defense.
This tiny country is situated on the fault line of jihad, frustrating Islam's territorial advance. Israel is facing the front lines of jihad, like Kashmir, Kosovo, the Philippines, Southern Thailand, Darfur in Sudan, Lebanon, and Aceh in Indonesia. Israel is simply in the way. The same way West-Berlin was during the Cold War.
The war against Israel is not a war against Israel. It is a war against the West. It is jihad. Israel is simply receiving the blows that are meant for all of us. If there would have been no Israel, Islamic imperialism would have found other venues to release its energy and its desire for conquest. Thanks to Israeli parents who send their children to the army and lay awake at night, parents in Europe and America can sleep well and dream, unaware of the dangers looming.
Many in Europe argue in favor of abandoning Israel in order to address the grievances of our Muslim minorities. But if Israel were, God forbid, to go down, it would not bring any solace to the West. It would not mean our Muslim minorities would all of a sudden change their behavior, and accept our values. On the contrary, the end of Israel would give enormous encouragement to the forces of Islam. They would, and rightly so, see the demise of Israel as proof that the West is weak, and doomed. The end of Israel would not mean the end of our problems with Islam, but only the beginning. It would mean the start of the final battle for world domination. If they can get Israel, they can get everything. So-called journalists volunteer to label any and all critics of Islam as a 'right-wing extremists' or 'racists'. In my country, the Netherlands, 60 percent of the population now sees the mass immigration of Muslims as the number one policy mistake since World War II. And another 60 percent sees Islam as the biggest threat.
Yet there is a greater danger than terrorist attacks, the scenario of America as the last man standing. The lights may go out in Europe faster than you can imagine. An Islamic Europe means a Europe without freedom and democracy, an economic wasteland, an intellectual nightmare, and a loss of military might for America—as its allies will turn into enemies, enemies with atomic bombs. With an Islamic Europe, it would be up to America alone to preserve the heritage of Rome, Athens and Jerusalem.
Dear friends, Liberty is the most precious of gifts. My generation never had to fight for this freedom, it was offered to us on a silver platter, by people who fought for it with their lives. All throughout Europe, American cemeteries remind us of the young boys who never made it home, and whose memory we cherish. My generation does not own this freedom; we are merely its custodians. We can only hand over this hard won liberty to Europe's children in the same state in which it was offered to us. We cannot strike a deal with mullahs and imams. Future generations would never forgive us. We cannot squander our liberties. We simply do not have the right to do so.
We have to take the necessary action now to stop this Islamic stupidity from destroying the free world that we know. Please take the time to read and understand what is written here, please send it to every free person that you know.
Keep my America strong. If there was ever a time for "older Americans" to step up and teach American History it is NOW.
Stand Together....Vote Trump 2016
Interesting this speech was made in 2008....and this is almost EXACTLY where we stand today. Don't know what it takes for some of these idiots, especially the millennials in this country to understand that islam is NOT a peaceful religion. But a ways that would RULE every aspect of their lives...what they wear, words they use, whether they can have an alcoholic drink, and the violence and DEATH that comes with refusing the islamic way of life, including their own people. What....do they think these are just fairy tales? Why would ANYBODY want to live in that kind of a society???? We know why obama wants to bring this scum to our land, but how do we get congress to stop bowing to him?
I have reached a point where I don't want to read another speech about Islam and it's overthrow of the west. Obama and the democrats have hijacked our government, Congress has shown us how useless they are to fight back! Most American get their news from the main stream news, which spoon feeds the Islamic message and defends Hilary , Obama and the democrats.
It is up to the states to stand up and defend us. Which means monies coming from the federal government will be cut off, no welfare, no road money, no social security, no school money, no VA care, NO AMERICA as we have known it!
Sunni extremists are infiltrating the United States with the help of alien smugglers in South America and are crossing U.S. borders with ease, according to a U.S. South Command intelligence report.
The Command’s J-2 intelligence directorate reported recently in internal channels that “special interest aliens” are working with a known alien smuggling network in Latin America to reach the United States. The smuggling network was not identified.
Army Col. Lisa A. Garcia, a Southcom spokeswoman, did not address the intelligence report directly but said Sunni terrorist infiltration is a security concern.
“Networks that specialize in smuggling individuals from regions of terrorist concern, mainly from the Afghanistan-Pakistan region, the Middle East, and East Africa, are indeed a concern for Southcom and other interagency security partners who support our country’s national security,” Garcia told theWashington Free Beacon.
“There are major hubs that serve as entry points into the region for migrants from those areas of concern attempting to enter the U.S. along our border with Mexico,” she said.
The infiltrators from terrorist states and unstable regions exploit vulnerabilities in commercial transportation systems and immigration enforcement agencies in some of the countries used for transit, Garcia said.
“In 2015, we saw a total of 331,000 migrants enter the southwestern border between the U.S. and Mexico, of that we estimate more than 30,000 of those were from countries of terrorist concern,” she said.
Another problem in dealing with migrants from the Middle East, North Africa, and South Asia is a lack of information among the governments of the countries used by potential terrorists for transit.
The exploitation of alien smuggling networks by terrorists until recently had been dismissed by both American security officials and private security experts as largely an urban myth.
However, the Southcom intelligence report revealed that the threat of Islamist terror infiltration is no longer theoretical. “This makes the case for Trump’s wall,” said one American security official of the Southcom report. “These guys are doing whatever they want to get in the country.”
Adm. Kurt Tidd, Southcom’s commander, said last week that the lack of information is hampering security efforts against alien smuggling.
“An element that has been long recognized is that our ability to track people moving through transportation systems is an area that we must continue to devote efforts on, and the ease with which human traffickers are able to use our transportation systems to move people through the networks relatively undetected should give us all concern,” Tidd said.
Special interest aliens are described by the U.S. government as aliens who pose a potential terrorism threat coming from 34 nations in the Middle East, Africa, Southwest Asia, Central Asia, and East Asia. The list of states of concern includes Afghanistan, Iran, Kuwait, Iraq, Lebanon, Syria, Eritrea, Libya, Saudi Arabia, Pakistan, Indonesia, and Malaysia.
Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump last week called for stepped up counterterrorism measures that he said would involve “extreme vetting” of immigrants in a bid to better screen out potential terrorists.
Trump also has made a campaign theme the construction of a wall across the United States’ southern border as part of efforts to better control the flood of illegal immigrants.
Joel Vargas, head of Contingent Security Services and a consultant to law enforcement agencies, said there is no evidence Sunni extremists are creating new relationships with alien smugglers. However, he said in an email that “existing smuggling networks from Central America are increasing their access.”
“We have intercepted immigrants coming from Asia but we have been unable to determine if they are extremists,” Vargas said. “Our Sunni illegal migration coming from [Latin America] is very small. On the other hand, they can use the networks set up by the Shia.”
A report produced by Vargas for the International Airport, Seaport and Transport Police states that the Iran-backed Shiite terror group Hezbollah mainly has ties to Latin American through overseas Lebanese expatriates.
Hezbollah recently increased support in transnational crime in the region by supply arms and training to various groups.
“Hezbollah’s current goals appear to be focused on accruing resources rather than conducting offensive operations, however the group’s growing capabilities are still a clear threat to regional U.S. interests,” the report said. “Iran’s involvement in Latin America is also increasing, and Hezbollah will likely be able to use these budding political and economic ties as cover for its operations.”
Vargas said Hezbollah’s networks in Latin America could be used by Sunni extremists to get to the United States. “That is a workable situation,” he said. “If they disclose they are ISIL or any other group, I doubt that even the Shias will help out. Even [drug] cartels are killing anyone who appears extremist. It is bad for their business.”
According to Vargas, Guatemala remains a weak link for regional security services. A sophisticated alien smuggling operation that is capable of moving foreign nationals into the United States from Africa and other states has been centered in that Central American state for at least the past six years.
The Washington Times reported in June that an international alien smuggling network centered in Brazil helped sneak illegal immigrants from Middle Eastern states to the United States, including an Afghan linked to a terror plot in North America.
At least a dozen Middle Easterners reached the Western Hemisphere through this alien smuggling ring that facilitated travel to Mexico, the Times reported, quoting internal government documents.
The aliens involved Palestinians, Pakistanis, and the Afghan man with ties to the Taliban.
Some of the aliens were stopped before entering the United States but others succeeded in crossing the U.S. border.
One transit route used in the past by alien smugglers was identified in a recent Justice Department alien smuggling case that traced illegal immigrants from Europe, the Middle East, and Africa to Honduras, then to Guatemala and finally to Mexico and into the United States.
The cost of getting into the United States can reach $400 or more per person, and the illegal immigrants are provided with transportation, covert smuggling contacts along routes into the country, as well as instructions on how to illegally cross the U.S. border. The instructions in the past have included armed guides who ferry illegal aliens across U.S.-Mexico border rivers on inner tubes.
Director of National Intelligence James Clapper testified during a Senate hearing in February that Islamic State terrorists would try to infiltrate the United State posing as immigrants.
“That’s one technique they’ve used is taking advantage of the torrent of migrants to insert operatives into that flow,” Clapper said. “As well, they also have available to them—and are pretty skilled at phony passports so they can travel ostensibly as legitimate travelers as well.”Source : >>>>>Here
