    June 30 2016 Cruz Tears Into DHS Chief Over ‘Systematic Scrubbing’ of Radical Islam

    Please read the full text for clarity and understanding

    Cruz began by comparing the number of references to “Jihad,” “Muslim,” and “Islam” found in the 9/11 commission report to the number found in several of the Obama administration’s intelligence and counterterrorism materials.

    “The word ‘jihad’ appears in that report 126 times, the world ‘Muslim’ appears in that report 145 times, the world ‘Islam’ appears in that report 322 times,” he said sternly. “And yet since that 9/11 commission report,

    DIFFERENT POLICIES HAVE COME INTO EFFECT. AND AS A MATTER OF SYSTEMATIC POLICY, THOSE TERMS ARE NO LONGER ALLOWED TO BE USED IN THIS ADMINISTRATION.”

     “And yet since that 9/11 commission report, different policies have come into effect. And as a matter of systematic policy, those terms are no longer allowed to be used in this administration.”

    BUT, CRUZ NEVER ASKED WHY

    —————————————————————————————–

    THE UNANSWERED QUESTION IS WHY?

    Obama and his Administration have scrubbed  American History of the terms (words) associated with Radical Islamic Terrorism contained in the 2004 9-11 commission report.

    My website is dedicated to researching, documenting, posting and disseminating critical information

    As documented by Senator Cruz.

    INFORMED AMERICAN CITIZENS KNOW

    WHO scrubbed, PRESIDENT OBAMA ELECTED IN 2009, the first African American U.S. president.

    WHAT WAS SCRUBBED, ‘JIHAD’ 126 times, MUSLIM’ 145 times, ‘ISLAM’  322 times

    WHEN IT WAS SCRUBBED, BETWEEN THE TIME OBAMA WAS ELECTED PRESIDENT JAN  2009 AND June 30, 2016

    WHERE IT WAS SCRUBBED, Behind our back, behind closed doors in WA DC

    THE UNANSWERED QUESTION WAS WHY?

    After, spending 20 hours researching and reading and reading…

    I finally found and watched a  video. more research….I went to Snopes.

    Amazingly enough,  SNOPES PROVIDED THE “WHY” DOCUMENTATION ON OBAMA’S IMMIGRATION POLICY.

    WHY INDEED,  OBAMA’S  FUNDAMENTAL PLAN TO TRANSFORM AMERICA STARTED OCTOBER 30, 2008 AT A CAMPAIGN RALLY.

     OBAMA’S FUNDAMENTAL TRANSFORMATION OF AMERICA  WAS THEN AND  ALWAYS HAS BEEN……

    GLOBALIZATION BY IMMIGRATION, AND MORE  IMMIGRATION FOR GLOBALIZATION,

    WHAT BETTER WAY FOR OBAMA TO FUNDIMENTALLY TRANSFORM AMERICA

    IMPORTING HUNDREDS OF THOUSANDS OF  MUSLIMS TO THE US

    “Between 2010 and 2013, the Obama administration imported almost 300,000 new immigrants from Muslim nations — more immigrants than the U.S. let in from Central America and Mexico combined over that period… Many of the recent Muslim immigrants are from terrorist hot spots like Iraq, where the Islamic State operates. From 2010-2013, Obama ushered in 41,094 Iraqi nationals from there…

    an additional 45,000 new refugees, mostly from Syria, from 2016 to 2017.

    WHAT BETTER WAY TO FUNDIMENTALLY TRANSFORM AMERICA

    An Organized Invasion use the refugee program for Radical Islamic Terrorists to infiltrate the West

    “I take ISIS at its word when it says we want to use the refugee program to infiltrate the West,” Rep. Michael McCaul, Chairman of the House Homeland Security committee, said recently on CBS’s “Face the Nation.”

    PRESIDENT OBAMA SAYS SYRIAN REFUGEES ARE LESS DANGEROUS THAN TOURISTS, AND HE’S DIRECTED HIS ADMINISTRATION TO TAKE IN AT LEAST 10,000 SYRIAN REFUGEES IN 2016.

    Hmmm…an additional 45,000 new refugees, mostly from Syria, from 2016 to 2017.

    Berlin, Germany, July 17, 2015.  THE REALITY OF GLOBALIZATION

    THE INFLUX OF HUNDREDS OF THOUSANDS OF REFUGEES INTO EUROPE IS PART OF THE REALITY OF GLOBALIZATION, German Finance Minister Wolfgang Schaeuble said on Thursday.

    The German government expects 800,000 or more people to arrive this year and media say it could be up to 1.5 million.

    German authorities are struggling to cope with the roughly 10,000 refugees arriving every day, many fleeing conflict in the Middle East.

    INDEED, Cruz Tears Into DHS Chief Over ‘Systematic Scrubbing’ of Radical Islam During Contentious Exchange

    Jun. 30, 2016 12:50pm

    Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) grilled Department of Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson Thursday over the “systematic scrubbing of law enforcement and intelligence materials,” connecting the issue to the 2014 Fort Hood shooting and other attacks.

    Cruz began by comparing the number of references to “Jihad,” “Muslim,” and “Islam” found in the 9/11 commission report to the number found in several of the Obama administration’s intelligence and counterterrorism materials.

    “The word ‘jihad’ appears in that report 126 times, the world ‘Muslim’ appears in that report 145 times, the world ‘Islam’ appears in that report 322 times,” he said sternly. “And yet since that 9/11 commission report, different policies have come into effect. And as a matter of systematic policy, those terms are no longer allowed to be used in this administration.”

    Johnson told Cruz repeatedly that he has no knowledge efforts to “purge” DHS material of references to radical Islam. The DHS chief went on to claim that conceding the Islamic State is connected to Islam only gives the terrorist group what it wants.

    Cruz ultimately cut off Johnson to reclaim his speaking time.

    “You’re entitled to give speeches other times,” Cruz said. “My question was if you were aware that the information has been scrubbed.”

    Watch the entire contentious exchange below:

    Cruz also pushed back against Johnson’s assertion that removing references to radical Islam is merely a “semantic difference.”

    “When you erase references to radical jihad, it impacts the behavior of law enforcement and national security to respond to red flags and prevent terrorist attacks before they occur,” Cruz said.

    The Texas senator suggested the Fort Hood shooting may have been one of those instances. When bluntly asked by Cruz if it was a “mistake” not to respond to the “red flags” in regards to Fort Hood shooter Nidal Hasan, Johnson accused Cruz of citing incorrect information.

    “In one minute, I couldn’t begin to answer your question,” he said.

    “Pick anything,” Cruz shot back. “Pick one thing, sir.”

    “You’re assuming that the federal government in advance of the attack on Fort Hood saw all these different red flags. That’s not correct,” Johnson said.

    That’s when Cruz got specific.

    “Is it true or false that the Obama administration knew before the attack that Nidal Hasan was communicating with Anwar al-Awlaki?” Cruz asked.

    “How are you defining the ‘Obama administration,’ sir?” Johnson said.

    “The Federal Bureau of Investigation,” Cruz responded.

    “The entire Federal Bureau of Investigation? I can’t answer that question sitting here,” Johnson answered.

    “The answer is ‘yes’ and it’s public record, sir,” Cruz retorted.

    Cruz went on to cite “red flags” missed in the Boston bombings and San Bernardino attack.

They have been reminded that the history of immigration in this country has a dark underbelly; they need specific reassurances that their citizenship really means something, that America has learned the right lessons from the Japanese internments during World War II, and that I will stand with them should the political winds shift in an ugly direction.

    SNOPES EXPLAINS..THE QUOTATION

    This statement is a rewording of a passage from page 261 of The Audacity of Hope, in which Barack Obama wrote of the importance of not allowing inflamed public opinion to result in innocent members of immigrant groups being stripped of their rights, denied their due as American citizens, or placed into confinement, as was done with Japanese-American U.S. citizens during World War II. The original contains no specific mention of “Muslims” — Obama was referring to the importance of standing up for and protecting the rights of all immigrants who have become U.S. citizens, and someone altered the wording of the passage to give it a different meaning:

    ​Donald J. Trump Statement Regarding British Referendum on E.U. Membership | Donald J Trump for President

    Donald Trump8 hours ago – June 24, 2016 –
     The people of the United Kingdom have exercised the sacred right of all free peoples. They have declared their independence from the European Union and have voted to reassert control over their own politics, borders and economy. A Trump Administration pledges to strengthen our ties with a free and independent Britain, deepening our bonds in commerce, culture and mutual defense. The whole world is more peaceful and stable when our two countries – and our two peoples – are united together, as they will be under a Trump Administration.

    Come November, the American people will have the chance to re-declare their independence. Americans will have a chance to vote for trade, immigration and foreign policies that put our citizens first. They will have the chance to reject today’s rule by the global elite, and to embrace real change that delivers a government of, by and for the people. I hope America is watching, it will soon be time to believe in America again.

    UK Independence Day June 23, 2016

    The populist vote is the ONLY reason the UK got out of the EU

    What was the Silent Majority thinking?

    UK out of the EU 7 Good Reasons

    Brexit: the 7 most important arguments for Britain to leave the EU

    Vox2 hours ago Updated by on June 24, 2016, 9:10 a.m. ET

    Yesterday, Britain voted to leave the European Union— an option dubbed “Brexit. … the International Monetary Fund, and the World Bank. … and many economists believe the euro was the primary culprit.

    Argument 1: The EU threatens British sovereignty

    Argument 2: The EU is strangling the UK in burdensome regulations

    Argument 3: The EU entrenches corporate interests and prevents radical reforms

    Argument 4: The EU was a good idea, but the euro is a disaster

    Argument 5: The EU allows too many immigrants

    Argument 6: The UK could have a more rational immigration system outside the EU

    Argument 7: The UK could keep the money it currently sends to the EU

    ———————————————————-

    Argument 1: The EU threatens British sovereignty

    This is probably the most common argument among intellectual-minded people on the British right, expressed by Conservative politicians such as former London Mayor Boris Johnson and Justice Minister Michael Gove.

    Over the past few decades, a series of EU treaties have shifted a growing amount of power from individual member states to the central EU bureaucracy in Brussels. On subjects where the EU has been granted authority — like competition policy, agriculture, and copyright and patent law — EU rules override national laws.

    Euroskeptics emphasize that the EU’s executive branch, called the European Commission, isn’t directly accountable to voters in Britain or anyone else. British leaders have some influence on the selection of the European Commission’s members every five years. But once the body has been chosen, none of its members are accountable to the British government or to Britons’ elected representatives in the European Parliament.

    Argument 2: The EU is strangling the UK in burdensome regulations

    Critics like Johnson say the EU’s regulations have become increasingly onerous:

    Sometimes these EU rules sound simply ludicrous, like the rule that you can’t recycle a teabag, or that children under eight cannot blow up balloons, or the limits on the power of vacuum cleaners. Sometimes they can be truly infuriating – like the time I discovered, in 2013, that there was nothing we could do to bring in better-designed cab windows for trucks, to stop cyclists being crushed. It had to be done at a European level, and the French were opposed.

    Many British conservatives look at the European bureaucracy in Brussels the same way American conservatives view the Washington bureaucracy. Gove has argued that EU regulations cost the British economy “£600 million every week” ($880 million). (Though this figure is disputed.)

    Argument 3: The EU entrenches corporate interests and prevents radical reforms

    Labour In Rally For The Last Time In The EU Referendum Campaign Photo by Matt Cardy/Getty Images
    Labour Party leader Jeremy Corbyn has been a reluctant supporter of the “remain” campaign.

    This is the mirror image of the previous two arguments. Whereas many British conservatives see the EU as imposing left-wing, big-government policies on Britain, some on the British left see things the other way around: that the EU’s antidemocratic structure gives too much power to corporate elites and prevents the British left from making significant gains.

    “The EU is anti-democratic and beyond reform,” said Enrico Tortolano, campaign director for Trade Unionists against the EU, in an interview with Quartz. The EU “provides the most hospitable ecosystem in the developed world for rentier monopoly corporations, tax-dodging elites and organized crime,” writes British journalist Paul Mason.

    This left-wing critique of the EU is part of a broader critique of elite institutions more generally, including the World Trade Organization, the International Monetary Fund, and the World Bank. Brexit supporters on the left would have a lot in common with Americans who are against trade deals like the Trans-Pacific Partnership.

    Argument 4: The EU was a good idea, but the euro is a disaster

    The United Kingdom has had a significant faction of euroskeptics ever since it joined the EU in 1973. But until recently, this was a minority position.

    “There are nearly 130 Conservative MPs who have declared for leaving the EU,” economist Andrew Lilico told me last week. “If you went back 10 years, you would have struggled to find more than 20 who even in private would have supported leaving the EU.”

    So what changed their minds? The global recession that began in 2008 was bad around the world, but it was much worse in countries that had adopted Europe’s common currency, the euro. The unemployment rate shot up above 20 percent in countries like Greece and Spain, triggering a massive debt crisis. Seven years after the recession began, Spain and Greece are still suffering from unemployment rates above 20 percent, and many economists believe the euro was the primary culprit.

    Luckily, the UK chose not to join the common currency, so there’s little danger of the euro directly cratering the British economy. But the euro’s dismal performance still provides extra ammunition to Brexit supporters.

    Many economists believe that deeper fiscal and political integration will be needed for the eurozone to work properly. Europe needs a common welfare and tax system so that countries facing particularly severe downturns — like Greece and Spain — can get extra help from the center.

    But that makes Britain’s continued inclusion in the EU awkward. Britain is unlikely to go along with deeper fiscal integration, but it would also be unwieldy to create a set of new, parallel eurozone-specific institutions that excluded the UK.

    So, the argument goes, it might be better for everyone if the UK got out of the EU, clearing the path for the rest of the EU to evolve more quickly into a unified European state.

    Argument 5: The EU allows too many immigrants

    Nigel Farage Gives His Final Speech Of The EU Referendum Campaign Photo by Dan Kitwood/Getty Images
    Nigel Farage, leader of the far-right United Kingdom Independence Party, has focused his campaign for Brexit on limiting immigration.

    The intellectual case for Brexit is mostly focused on economics, but the emotional case for Brexit is heavily influenced by immigration. EU law guarantees that citizens of one EU country have the right to travel, live, and take jobs in other EU countries.

    British people have increasingly felt the impact of this rule since the 2008 financial crisis. The eurozone has struggled economically, and workers from eurozone countries such as Ireland, Italy, and Lithuania (as well as EU countries like Poland and Romania that have not yet joined the common currency) have flocked to the UK in search of work.

    “In recent years, hundreds of thousands of Eastern Europeans have come to Britain to do a job,” British journalist and Brexit supporter Douglas Murray told me last week. This, he argues, has “undercut the native working population.”

    The UK absorbed 333,000 new people, on net, in 2015. That’s a significant number for a country Britain’s size, though according to the CIA the UK still received slightly fewer net migrants, relative to population, than the United States in 2015.

    Immigration has become a highly politicized issue in Britain, as it has in the United States and many other places over the past few years. Anti-immigration campaigners like Nigel Farage, the leader of the far-right UK Independence Party, have argued that the flood of immigrants from Southern and Eastern Europe has depressed the wages of native-born British workers. Some voters are also concerned about immigrants using scarce public services.

    “One of the causes for the great public disgruntlement,” Murray argues, is that Labour governments at the turn of the century “massively understated the numbers [of immigrants] to be expected,” creating public distrust of current pledges to keep migration under control.

    Argument 6: The UK could have a more rational immigration system outside the EU

    While many Brexit supporters simply want to reduce the amount of immigration overall, others argue that the UK could have a more sensible immigration system if it didn’t have the straitjacket of the EU.

    EU rules require the UK to admit all EU citizens who wants to move to Britain, whether or not they have good job prospects or English skills.

    “Leave” advocates argue that the UK should be focused on admitting immigrants who will bring valuable skills to the country and integrate well into British culture. They mention the point-based immigration systems of Canada and Australia, which award potential migrants points based on factors like their language and job skills, education, and age. That, “leave” advocates argue, would allow the UK to admit more doctors and engineers who speak fluent English, and fewer unskilled laborers with limited English skills.

    Argument 7: The UK could keep the money it currently sends to the EU

    The EU doesn’t have the power to directly collect taxes, but it requires member states to make an annual contribution to the central EU budget. Currently, the UK’s contribution is worth about £13 billion ($19 billion) per year, which is about $300 per person in the UK. (“Leave” supporters have been citing a larger figure, but that figure ignores a rebate that’s automatically subtracted from the UK’s contribution.)

    While much of this money is spent on services in the UK, Brexit supporters still argue that it would be better for the UK to simply keep the money and have Parliament decide how to spend it.

    —————————————————-

    The Epidemic spread of Terrorism ISIS, ISIL, Al-Qaida, SHIITE MILITIAS

    A lady known as Paris/EUROPE, Romantic and Charming
    Has left her old companions and faded from view

    Lonely men with lonely eyes are seeking her in vain
    Her streets are where they were, but there’s no sign of her

    She has left the Seine

    The last time I saw Paris/EUROPE, her heart was warm and gay,
    I heard the laughter of her heart in every street café

    The last time I saw Paris/EUROPE, her trees were dressed for spring,
    And lovers walked beneath those trees and birds found songs to sing.

    I dodged the same old taxicabs that I had dodged for years.
    The chorus of their squeaky horns was music to my ears.

    The last time I saw Paris/EUROPE, her heart was warm and gay,
    No matter how they change her, I’ll remember her that way.

    I’ll think of happy hours, and people who shared them
    Old women, selling flowers, in markets at dawn

    Children who applauded, Punch and Judy in the park
    And those who danced at night and kept our Paris/EUROPE bright

    ’til the towns/ OF EUROPE went dark.

  • Exceptionalism Made American Great

    Exceptionalism Made American Great

    American Exceptionalism stems from the United States emergence from the American Revolution.

    Political scientist Seymour Martin Lipset called it “THE FIRST NEW NATION” DEVELOPING A UNIQUELY AMERICAN IDEOLOGY, “AMERICANISM”, BASED ON LIBERTY, EGALITARIANISM, INDIVIDUALISM, REPUBLICANISM, DEMOCRACY AND LAISSEZ-FAIRE FOR BUSINESS.

    As Abraham Lincoln put it in the Gettysburg address (1863),
    Americans have a duty to see that “government of the people, by the people, for the people, shall not perish from the earth.”

    It is our obligation to our dead—it is our sacred obligation’ to their children and to our children-

    THAT WE MUST NEVER FORGET WHAT WE HAVE LEARNED.

    AMERICAN PEOPLE FOUGHT AND WON THE REVOLUTION, THE U.S. GOVERNMENT ACTED, WROTE, SIGNED, SEALED AND DELIVERED THE DECLARATION OF INDEPENDENCE,THE CONSTITUTION OF THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA AND THE BILL OF RIGHTS TO THE AMERICAN PEOPLE.

    —————–
    AMERICAN EXCEPTIONALISM IS ONE OF THREE RELATED IDEAS.
    THE FIRST IS THAT THE HISTORY OF THE UNITED STATES IS INHERENTLY DIFFERENT FROM OTHER NATIONS.
    SECOND IS THE IDEA THAT AMERICA HAS A UNIQUE MISSION TO TRANSFORM THE WORLD.
    THIRD IS THE SENSE THAT ITS HISTORY AND ITS MISSION GIVE THE UNITED STATES A SUPERIORITY OVER OTHER NATIONS.

    A HOSTILE TAKEOVER OF THE REPUBLICAN PARTY BY DONALD TRUMP?

    A hostile takeover is the acquisition of one company (called the target company) by another (called the acquirer) that is accomplished not by coming to an agreement with the target company’s management, BUT BY GOING DIRECTLY TO THE COMPANY’S SHAREHOLDERS or fighting to replace management in order to get the acquisition …

    ON SUPER TUESDAY DONALD TRUMP’S HOSTILE TAKEOVER

    NOT BY COMING TO AN AGREEMENT WITH THE GOP’S ESTABLISHMENT

    BUT BY GOING DIRECTLY TO THE COUNTRY’S SHAREHOLDERS

    THE AMERICAN PRESIDENT MUST BE AN EXCEPTIONAL DEAL MAKER.

    TRUMP MADE AN EXCEPTIONAL DEAL WITH WORKING  AMERICAN PEOPLE.

    TRUMP- SHALL “MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN”

    THE GOP HIGH COMMAND SEEMS INCAPABLE OF STOPPING HIM.

    Mar. 3, 2016, Republican presidential frontrunner Donald Trump’s dominant start to the presidential primary process looks LIKE IT COULD CONTINUE OVER THE NEXT SEVERAL WEEKS, ACCORDING TO POLLS surveying upcoming state’s contests.

    Thirteen states hold primaries or caucuses over the next two weeks. Of them, TRUMP IS LEADING POLLS IN NINE, according to the RealClearPolitics average, including some of the most important, winner-take-all states.

    Polls were accurate in predicting Trump wins in New Hampshire, South Carolina, Nevada, Vermont, Virginia, Alabama, Georgia, Massachusetts, and Tennessee.

    Northern Border, Part 1

    Relations with the government of Canada remain cordial. Canadian citizens can cross into the U.S. at will, traveling and vacationing without an official visa. Even living and working in the U.S. poses little problem for the Canadian citizen; visa requirements are very lenient for our “harmless” brothers and sisters to the north.
    Soon, any American citizen wishing to fly to or from Canada and the United States will be required to present a passport.
    The Canadian border is guarded on its northern side by the Canadian Mounties.
    Anyone familiar with Canadian immigration policy will tell you that Canada is an immigrant haven and one especially desirable for those seeking some form of asylum. Permanent resident status in Canada is easy to obtain even for individuals from countries strongly suspected of supporting organized terrorism.

    His intended target was the Los Angeles International Airport. Ressam was only caught because he attempted to smuggle his explosives through a port-of-entry. Had he been thinking, he would have slipped across the border just a few miles to either side of the port-of-entry and exploited the biggest weakness in all of U.S. homeland security.

    Growing up in Algeria

    Ahmed Ressam was born on May 19, 1967, the eldest of seven children. He grew up in a small, poor town west of Algiers. His brother Kamel Ressam told Newsweek (May 8, 2000) that Ahmed was the first in the family to get a “modern” education. By his teenage years, according to Kamel, he had become somewhat of a “dandy,” wearing American clothes like Levi’s and Stan Smith sneakers. In 1984, Ressam developed an ulcer and was sent to Paris for treatment. In France, he read  books — banned in Algeria — about how military dictators ruined Algeria’s hopes of democracy after it gained independence from France. On his return, his brother says, Ressam was very bitter about his country. He believed that the government was corrupt and began to take up the cause of militant Islamic rebels, to his father’s dismay.

    Ressam failed the exam which would have allowed him to continue on to college after graduating from high school in 1988. He applied for jobs with the Algerian police and security forces, but was turned down. He worked for a few years in the coffee shop owned by his father. In 1992, he left Algeria and headed for France in an attempt, he testified, to find work.

    1992 + Ressam leaves Algeria for France

    In 1992, civil war broke out in Algeria when an Islamic fundamentalist party won national elections but was prevented from taking power by the military government. Many of the Islamic militants left Algeria in 1992, including Ressam. He moved to France, where he lived illegally until 1994, mostly on the island of Corsica. He says that during his time there he worked picking grapes and oranges and at a tourist resort.

    February 1994 + Ressam travels to Canada

    Using a doctored French passport with his picture crudely glued in, the 27-year-old Ressam flew from France to Montreal. At the airport, he was stopped by immigration officials who suspected that his passport was false. Ressam requested political asylum, claiming in a sworn statement that he had been tortured in Algeria and that he was falsely accused of arms trading and other terrorist activities. Apparently without checking with Algeria, France, or Interpol, Canadian immigration agents accepted his story and released him pending a hearing on his refugee status. Canada’s Immigration Minister, Elinor Caplan, later said it was not a serious offense to present a false passport to gain entry to Canada, noting that many legitimate refugees resort to doing so.

    Ressam lived in Montreal for four years. He took up residence in an apartment building later identified by Canadian and international police as the Montreal headquarters of a terrorist cell connected to the Osama bin Laden network, and, more specifically, to an Algerian terrorist organization called the Armed Islamic Group, or GIA. (See the Links and Readings section for more about GIA’s origins and activities.)

    According to Ressam’s trial testimony, during the time he lived in Montreal he worked only a week, delivering advertising leaflets. The remainder of the time, he says, he supported himself on welfare payments and by robbing tourists. Although Ressam estimates that he performed this kind of theft between 30 and 40 times during his stay in Montreal, he says he was arrested for these thefts only four times, and convicted only once. He served no jail time for that conviction, but paid a fine. Despite his arrests, he continued to draw welfare benefits of $500 per month, which he was entitled to as a potential refugee.

    During this time, Ressam says that he and an associate, Mokhtar Haouari, another Algerian refugee claimant, engaged in the trafficking of stolen driver’s license numbers, bank cards, and Social Security cards. They also provided Canadian passports and other identity documents to terrorist associates around the world.

    1995 + Application for refugee status denied

    After missing a June hearing on his application for political asylum, Ressam’s application was denied and a warrant for his arrest was issued. However, he evaded immigration authorities and was never deported. He had developed a new identity for himself by filling in the blanks of a stolen baptismal certificate form with the alias “Benni Antoine Noris.” Using the forged baptismal certificate, he then obtained a Canadian passport in that name.

    1996 + French authorities link Ressam to Algerian terrorist group

    The GIA, or Armed Islamic Group, is a violent terrorist organization based in Algeria. The first major international incident involving the GIA was the 1994 hijacking of an Air France jet in Marseilles, in which hijackers reportedly attempted to crash the plane, fully loaded with fuel, into the Eiffel Tower. The GIA also claimed responsibility for a series of bombing attacks against the Paris Metro in 1995 and 1996. In March 1996, GIA terrorists attempted to bomb the G-7 ministers’ meeting in Lille, Belgium. Evidence from a car bomb, which the police found and exploded safely, led investigators to the nearby town of Roubaix in northern France, home to a group of GIA members. When police closed in on the apartment where the suspected terrorists were, a gun battle ensued, in which one of the GIA members was shot to death. On his body, police found an electronic organizer with the Montreal telephone number of the apartment Ressam was sharing with friends from Algeria. French investigators notified CSIS, the Canadian Security and Intelligence Service, about this evidence of GIA terrorist activity in Montreal.

    According to CSIS officials, Ressam was under surveillance as part of a large investigation into a suspected terrorist ring from 1996 until he left for Afghanistan in 1998.

    March 17, 1998 + Trip to Afghanistan for jihad training

    Ressam left Montreal and headed for Afghanistan for terrorist training at the camps funded and administered by Osama bin Laden. He traveled first to Peshawar, a city in northwestern Pakistan near the Afghanistan border, and met with Abu Zubaida, a senior bin Laden lieutenant and gatekeeper in charge of the camps. According to his testimony, Ressam was approved by Zubaida and sent on to the camp in April 1998, where he received training in light arms — including machine guns and rocket propelled grenades — the use of explosives and poison gas, methods for assassination, sabotage, and urban warfare.

    It was during this time, Ressam says, that he began to plan an attack on U.S. targets in 1999. He says that he was assigned to the European-based cell of the Algerian group in the camp, and that the members of the cell planned to travel separately and meet in Canada to commence “an operation” in America before the end of 1999. Before he left for North America, Ressam says that Zubaida requested that Ressam send original Canadian passports to be supplied to other members of the network.

    February 1999 + Return to Canada

    Ressam traveled alone — on the Canadian passport under the name of Benni Noris — back to Montreal. He says that he brought with him chemicals and directions for making explosives. He flew from Pakistan to Seoul, South Korea, and then on to Los Angeles International Airport. It was this visit to the Los Angeles airport that provided him with the inspiration for his bombing target. He thought he could place a bomb, hidden in a suitcase, in the passenger waiting area. After surveilling the airport and calculating how long it would take security guards to check abandoned luggage, he caught a flight to Canada. Back in Montreal, under the name of Benni Noris, he signed a lease on an apartment and obtained a driver’s license. CSIS officials say during this period they were actively looking for Ahmed Ressam and were unaware of his alias.

    In his trial testimony, Ressam said that two members of his cell who were planning to meet him in Canada were stopped at London Immigration. As a result, they determined it was unsafe to travel. Ressam decided to continue with the operation on his own.

    April 1999 + French investigators request search warrants

    French investigating magistrate Judge Jean-Louis Bruguiere sent a formal letter to Canadian justice authorities asking for search warrants to be executed in Montreal in his investigation of Algerian terrorists, including Ahmed Ressam, who was specifically named. It took Canada six months to process the request.

    August 1999 + Plan to bomb airport takes shape

    According to his testimony, Ressam began working out the details of his plan to bomb the Los Angeles airport in the late summer of 1999. By fall, he was building timing devices for the bomb and gathering other chemical ingredients.

    During this time, he renewed an important relationship with Mokhtar Haouari, another Algerian refugee claimant living in Montreal. The two men had many political discussions, especially about the bombings which took place in the Paris Metro and at the U.S. embassies in Kenya and Tanzania. Haouari expressed interest in attending jihad training in Afghanistan, and he helped fund Ressam’s activities. Haouari also connected Ressam with an associate in New York, Abdelghani Meskini, who was to be his assistant and guide in the U.S. Ressam maintains, however, that neither Meskini nor Haouari knew of the specific target of Ressam’s plan.

    Nov. 17, 1999 + Ressam goes to Vancouver

    Ressam flew from Montreal to Vancouver to gather materials and make explosives in preparation for his operation. In Vancouver, he met up with a key accomplice, another Algerian refugee named Abdelmajid Dahoumane. The two men rented a room in a motel and set up a crude bomb-making factory.

    Early December 1999 + Ressam returns to Montreal

    Ressam returned to Montreal and met with Haouari, instructing Haouari to tell his friend Meskini to meet Ressam in Seattle in a week’s time. Haouari gave Ressam a driver’s license in the name of Mario Riog. On Dec. 6 or Dec. 7, Ressam returned to Vancouver. For the next week, he and Dahoumane stayed at the Motel 2400, mixing up explosives and gathering material needed for the bomb.

    Dec. 14, 1999 + Ressam arrested near Seattle

    Ressam says that on the morning of Dec. 14, he called Meskini and told him he would be in Seattle that evening. That afternoon, he took a ferry from Victoria, B.C., to Port Angeles, Wash., with more than 100 pounds of explosives stashed in the wheelbed of the trunk of his rental car. His accomplice, Dahoumane, did not travel with him.

    At Victoria, U.S. immigration pre-clearance agents were mildly suspicious of Ressam. They made him open his trunk, but saw nothing. He presented his fake Canadian passport, and the computer check turned up no previous convictions or warrants in the name of Benni Noris. Ressam drove his rental car, with its concealed bomb, onto the ferry heading for Washington state. Upon his arrival at Port Angeles, a U.S. customs agent became suspicious of his hesitant answers to her questions, and she asked for identification. Agents began searching the car. As they discovered the explosive materials — which they at first took to be drugs — in the trunk of the car, Ressam tried to run away. He was caught and arrested.

    Aftermath and Sept. 11, 2001

    After Ressam’s arrest was televised, an urgent call to Meskini came from Haouari in Montreal. Haouari was recorded telling Meskini to change his phone number, beeper, and cell phone and to leave immediately. Police watched as Meskini ripped up airline receipts and bank machine slips and threw them into a nearby dumpster. The FBI retrieved the evidence, and both men were arrested hours later. Meskini entered into a plea agreement in which he admitted conspiring with Ressam and testified against him at trial. Haouari was extradited to the U.S. from Canada and put on trial in New York.

    On April 6, 2001, after a four-week trial in U.S. District Court in Los Angeles, Ressam was convicted of nine counts, including conspiracy to commit an international terrorist act, explosives smuggling, and lying to customs officials. Facing up to 130 years in prison, Ressam agreed to cooperate with prosecutors, providing information about his activities and those of his terrorist network. As part of the agreement, he testified against Haouari at trial. His sentencing has been postponed until February 2002. Also on April 6, Ressam was convicted in absentia in France and sentenced to five years for conspiring to commit terrorist acts there.

    Abdelmajid Dahoumane escaped to Afghanistan. The U.S. State Department issued a reward of up to $5 million for information leading to his arrest and conviction. He was later caught by Algerian security forces and convicted on terrorism-related charges there.

    Just days after the terrorist attacks in the U.S. on Sept. 11, 2001, investigators interrogated Ressam at the federal detention center near Seattle. They reportedly showed him pictures of the 19 hijackers. He said he knew none of them but did provide other names of people in so-called “sleeper cells” in North America. Ressam has also added significant new information about Al Qaeda’s interest in chemical and biological weapons.

    FEDERATION FOR AMERICAN IMMIGRATION REFORM (FAIR)

    THE FISCAL BURDEN OF ILLEGAL IMMIGRATION ON. UNITED STATES TAXPAYERS by Jack Martin, director of special projects and Eric A. Ruark, director of research.

    http://www.fairus.org/issues/publications/state-cost-studies

    ——————————————————————————————-

    WASHINGTON STATE estimated 275,000 illegal immigrants and their U.S.-born children cost state’s taxpayers about $2.7 billion per year. That cost results from regular K-12 public schooling plus supplemental English instruction, medical services, policing, courts and incarceration as well as some welfare programs for the U.S.-born children of illegal aliens. The fiscal burden on Washingtonians has been growing as the size of the illegal alien population has grown. The fiscal burden translates into an annual fiscal burden of about $970 for each household headed by a U.S. citizen.

    ——————————————————————————

    CALIFORNIA’S FISCAL BURDEN HAS DOUBLED IN 10 YEARS 2004-2014

    2014 CALIFORNIANS bear an enormous fiscal burden as a result of an illegal alien population estimated at almost 3 million residents. The annual expenditure of state and local tax dollars on services for that population is $25.3 BILLION. That total amounts to a yearly burden of about

    2014   $2,370 FOR A HOUSEHOLD HEADED BY A U.S. CITIZEN.

    2004 Current Census Bureau data indicate that California’s illegal immigrant population is costing the state’s taxpayers more than $10 BILLION PER YEAR IN 2004. This analysis looks specifically at the costs of education, medical care and incarceration, which are the major cost categories. Even without accounting for all of the other areas in which costs are being incurred by California’s taxpayers, this study indicates that the burden is substantial —

    2004 NEARLY $1,200 PER NATIVE-HEADED HOUSEHOLD — AND THAT THE COSTS ARE RAPIDLY INCREASING.

    ———————————————————————————————-

    2012The fiscal burden on OREGON’S taxpayers resulting from an estimated 170,000 illegal immigrants and their U.S.-born children cost state’s taxpayers an estimated $1 billion per year. That fiscal cost results from regular K-12 public schooling plus supplemental English instruction, medical services, policing, courts and incarceration as well as some welfare programs for the U.S.-born children of illegal aliens. That fiscal burden has been growing as the size of the illegal alien population has grown. The annual outlay amounts to about $730 for each household headed by a U.S. citizen.

    ————————————————————————————–

    In 2013, illegal immigration cost TEXAS TAXPAYERS ABOUT $12.1 BILLION ANNUALLY. That amounts to more than $1,197 for every Texas household headed by a native-born or naturalized U.S. citizen. The taxes paid by illegal aliens — estimated at $1.27 billion per year — do not come close to paying for those outlays, but we include an estimate of revenue from sales taxes, property taxes, alcohol taxes, and cigarette taxes.

    ———————————————————————————————————–

    NEW MEXICANS bear a fiscal burden of about $717 million per year in outlays due to an estimated 100,000 illegal alien residents and their U.S.-born children. Those outlays are in large part due to the education of an estimated 6,700 illegal alien students and an additional 30,170 U.S.-born children of illegal aliens. Their K-12 cost is about $438 million, and an additional $54 million is spent on their separate English instruction. Other costs relate to medical services, policing, courts and incarceration as well as some welfare programs for the U.S.-born children of illegal aliens. That fiscal burden has been growing as the size of the illegal alien population has grown. The annual outlay amounts to about $1,000 per household headed by a U.S. citizen.

    ————————————————————————————————–

    2014 Illegal immigration cost NORTH CAROLINA taxpayers more than $2 billion annually. That amounts to $578 annually for every North Carolina household headed by a native-born or naturalized U.S. citizen. The taxes paid by illegal aliens — estimated at less than $300 million per year — do not come close to paying for those outlays, and are not a true offset in any case. The burden on the state’s taxpayers would not be alleviated by adoption of an amnesty, but could be compounded if it attracted a new surge of illegal immigration as did the amnesty in 1986.

    —————————————————————————————————————————-

    2010 Illegal immigration costs federal and local taxpayers $113 billion a year. That is an average cost to native-headed households of $1,117 a year. This pioneering study brings together data and estimates of the fiscal cost resulting from federal, state and local expenditures on illegal aliens and their U.S.-born children. Separate estimates are available for each state. Copies by mail are $25.
