    “A federal jury in Brooklyn, New York, returned a guilty verdict today against Muhanad Mahmoud Al-Farekh on nine counts, including conspiracy to murder U.S. nationals, conspiracy to use a weapon of mass destruction, conspiracy to bomb a government facility and conspiracy to provide material support to terrorists. Farekh faces up to life in prison when he is sentenced by United States District Judge Brian M. Cogan.

    The verdict was announced by Acting Assistant Attorney General for National Security Dana J. Boente, Acting United States Attorney Bridget M. Rohde for the Eastern District of New York, Assistant Director in Charge William F. Sweeney. Jr. of the FBI’s New York Field Office and Commissioner James P. O’Neill of the NYPD.

    “Muhanad Mahmoud Al Farekh is an al Qaeda terrorist who conspired to kill Americans overseas. The trial evidence showed that he was involved in a variety of terrorist activity, including a VBIED attack on a U.S. military installation in Afghanistan in 2009. With today’s guilty verdict, Farekh is being held accountable for his crimes,” said Acting Assistant Attorney General Boente. “Counterterrorism is the highest priority of the National Security Division, and we will continue to use all tools available across the globe to bring to justice those who seek to harm Americans, including our brave servicemen and women who risk their lives in defense of our nation.””

      “At trial, the government presented evidence that prior to traveling overseas to join al Qaeda, Farekh was a student at the University of Manitoba in Canada. In 2007, Farekh and two fellow students traveled to Pakistan with the intention of fighting against American forces overseas. Farekh and his co-conspirators had become radicalized watching video recordings encouraging violent jihad, listened to jihadist lectures, including lectures by now-deceased al Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula leader Anwar al-Awlaki. They traveled to the Federally Administered Tribal Areas of Pakistan, an area in the northern part of Pakistan that borders Afghanistan and is home to al Qaeda’s base of operations, where they joined and received training from al Qaeda.

      One of Farekh’s co-conspirators, Ferid Imam, provided weapons and military-type training at an al Qaeda training camp in Pakistan in September 2008. Among Imam’s trainees were Najibullah Zazi, Zarein Ahmedzay and Adis Medunjanin, of Queens, New York, who intended to return to New York City to carry out a suicide attack in the subway system. During the trial, Ahmedzay testified that Imam as his weapons trainer. Zazi and Ahmedzay pleaded guilty pursuant to cooperation agreements and have yet to be sentenced. Medunjanin was convicted after trial and sentenced to life imprisonment. Imam has been indicted for his role in the plot. “

    Here is why DACA amnesty is unacceptable, Dems will seed them in swing states and we lose the Electoral College. Once the EC is gone, your country is gone.

    Bottom line first:
    Read this as most are missing the basic points about freedom of speech.

    Freedom of Speech.
    1) Freedom of speech is granted from the government and says the government cannot tell you what to say or do ON YOUR OWN TIME.

    2) This however does not apply to other NFL or private companies. In a private company, they can definitely tell you not to say or do something that will harm the company.

    No, you do not have complete freedom of speech when at work for a private company.

    The NFL is a private (non-government) company.
    In fact the NFL has a rule that says it is terms for firing if someone says or does something to hurt the NFL.

    Actually most private companies have some statement like this in your acceptable behavior agreement you sign on being hired.

    ==> All of these freedom of speech people have it all wrong.
    A person does not have freedom of speech everywhere and at all times.

    While at work, a private company can control your speech and actions so that you do not harm or destroy the company.

    While not at work on your own time, the government allows full freedom of speech and actions. And then only you a responsible for the good or bad effects of your words or actions allowed by the government.

    Unless you are at a private venue and they have formal behavior rules which you accept by buying a ticket.

    For example, when you go to the Opera, they can control your actions. If you disturb the Opera and other people, they have grounds to throw you out. As soon as you enter a private venue, you are bound by their rules if they have any.

    Even movie theaters have rules of behavior. Anyone falsely yelling fire or bomb scare can be removed and hauled away.

    In the future expect more private entertainment venues to have formal behavior rules you accept upon ticket purchase to cover them legally.

    Wowsers, this man is pi$$ed and pulls no punches. If you don’t want to listen to the whole thing, at least listen to the last 2 min. starting at @12:00 where he gives his to-do list on how to bring the NFL down. I completely agree with him on this and hope enough Americans will get serious about it. It needs to be done:

    The White House budget director has a reminder for administration officials thinking about flying on private jets

    Mick Mulvaney sent a letter on Friday telling officials to think twice before rounding up private air travel on the taxpayer’s dime: “Government-owned, rented, leased, or chartered aircraft should not be used for travel by Government employees, except with specific justification,” the letter from Mulvaney read, citing existing guidelines that have been on the books since the early 1990s.

    Mulvaney said that beyond those rules, the heads of all executive departments and agencies should remember that the money they spend comes out of US taxpayers’ pockets. “We thus owe it to the taxpayer to work as hard managing that money wisely as the taxpayer must do to earn it in the first place,” Mulvaney’s letter read.


    Sen. Chuck Grassley, chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee, echoed Mulvaney’s warnings to be mindful of taxpayer dollars in his own statement Friday, but the Iowa congressman went a step further: “It’s not just the cost of flights,” Grassley said.

    “It’s also whether attending a conference or a meeting overseas and planning a vacation around those events is in the public’s best interest.” That was an apparent reference to US Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin who watched the solar eclipse at Fort Knox while traveling in Kentucky with Mitch McConnell in August. Since then, other Trump administration officials have been scrutinized for their air-travel habits as well.

      I wonder how Mr. and Mrs. Ozero taking separate flights to LA within one hour of each other fit into those 1990s guidelines? Or taking Daughter Ozero’s entire class to Mexico for spring break under the watch of the Secret Service? Or taking Mrs. Ozero’s 40 best friends on a taxpayer-paid African Safari? Or the Ozero women vacationing in China, and deciding to give a pretend speech on “Education” to give it some guise of officialdom? Et cetera, Et cetera, Et cetera.

      This is one of my favorite things about the Trump presidency: accountability. I also believe it will have a tickle-down effect….individuals, leaders, CEO’s, etc. will begin to work this into their consciences. Humans of all ages crave boundaries. Without them there is chaos. Just common-sense—like good parenting.

    Twitter accuses Michelle Obama of pushing ‘racist’ literature onto children
    Sep 29th 2017


    Now many online are jumping to Trump’s defense by posting older photos of Michelle Obama reading children excerpts from Dr. Seuss books, arguing that the books weren’t considered “racist” until President Trump was sworn into office.

    Dr. Seuss ok when Michelle Obama read it to children but now has racist undertones when our First Lady donates books? Unreal,” one user wrote, while another posted: “Amazing… the same books Michelle Obama read to children, are now racist books because Trump is President.”
