U.S. Born Islamic Terrorist Wanted by FBI Arrested in Mexico
2019-08-19
[BREITBART] Mexican authorities arrested a man wanted in the United States by the FBI for his role in supporting Islamic terrorist organizations.
Mexico’s Attorney General’s Office (FGR) arrested Mohammed Azharuddin Chip this week at an immigration center in Huehuetan, Chiapas. Authorities detained him on an Interpol blue notice, according to information provided to Breitbart Texas by FGR. The wanted runaway is in the process of being extradited to Washington D.C.

Mexican authorities searched for Azharuddin in connection with an FBI investigation into his role in publishing information on online forums connected to radical Islamic terrorism and Jihad. Mexican authorities did not reveal additional information related to the case or his ultimate destination. Mexican immigration authorities held him at their immigration center in Chiapas before they turned him over to the FGR to handle his extradition to Washington. It remains unclear how Azharuddin arrived in Mexico.

As Breitbart Texas reported, Chiapas is one of the areas where Mexican President Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador deployed thousands of National Guard agents to curtail the number of Central American migrants colonists moving north in route to the U.S. border. The mass deployment of troops came after U.S. President Donald Trump

threatened Mexico with tariffs over AMLO’s initial soft approach to immigration.

Stacey Abrams: Racist Trump ‘Does Not Value Humanity’
2019-08-19
[BREITBART] Sunday on ABC’s "This Week," former Georgia Democratic gubernatorial candidate Stacey Abrams accused President Donald Trump
...the Nailer of NAFTA...
of not just being a racist but also someone who "doesn’t value humanity."

Abrams said, "I have said many times he is racist. More importantly, he does not value Americans and he does not value humanity. That should be more disturbing to everyone than the title we subscribe to him."

Buttigieg: Voting for Trump Is ‘Looking the Other Way on Racism’
2019-08-19
[BREITBART] Sunday on CNN’s "State of the Union," 2020 Democratic presidential hopeful South Bend, IN Mayor Pete Buttigieg
...the testicleless mayor of South Bend, Indiana, since 2012. Buttigieg graduated from Harvard College and, on a Rhodes Scholarship, from Pembroke College, Oxford. From 2007 to 2010, he worked at McKinsey and Company, a consulting firm. From 2009 to 2017 Buttigieg served as an intelligence officer in the United States Navy Reserve, attaining the rank of lieutenant and deploying to Afghanistan in 2014. Buttigieg was first elected mayor of South Bend in 2011 and was reelected in 2015. During his second term, he announced he was gay. Buttigieg also campaigned for Indiana state treasurer in 2010 and for chair of the Democratic National Committee in 2017, losing both elections. He is running for the Dem nomination in 2020 on the theory that being mayor of a nondescript medium sized city is qualification to run the country...
said Americans who voted for President Donald Trump
...Perhaps no man has ever had as much fun being president of the US...
were "looking the other way on racism."

Tapper asked, "You told me on this show two weeks ago that you believe President Trump is a white nationalist. Given that, do you think that it’s a racist act to cast a vote for President Trump in 2020?"

Buttigieg said, "Well, at best, it means looking the other way on racism. I think a lot of people are wondering what kind of deal even that is supposed to be. You know you look at what he said in that rally. You have no choice but to vote for me. And if you look at the numbers, basically what he’s saying is, ’all right, I want you to look the other way on the racism, tolerate the negativity, accept the instability of my administration because I’m going to deliver for you job growth almost as good as the Obama years.’ That’s what his argument amounts to now. It’s part of the reason why he’s unpopular."

O’Rourke: ‘We’ll Lose America’ If Trump Stays in Office
2019-08-19
[BREITBART] Sunday on NBC’s "Meet the Press," 2020 presidential hopeful former Rep. Beto O’Rourke;
...Kennedyeque businessman, musician, skateboard artiste, and politician who represented Texas' 16th congressional district in the United States House of Representatives from 2013 to 2019. Beto is a Latino nickname for people whose names end in "erto," like "Roberto" or "Alberto." He is seeking the Dem nomination for President in 2020 because he has nice hair and lots of teeth. He was born into a local political family in El Paso, Texas and is a graduate of a prep school and Columbia University, which is not in Texas. In 2005, he was elected to the El Paso City Council. He was elected to Congress in 2012 after defeating eight-term incumbent Silvestre Reyes in the Democratic primary. He declined to seek re-election in 2018, instead running for the Senate against Republican Ted Cruz, running a campaign that drew national attention because of his skateboarding skills. A few months after he lost, he announced his campaign for President...
(D-TX) predicted if President Donald Trump
...dictatorial for repealing some (but not all) of the diktats of his predecessor, misogynistic because he likes pretty girls, homophobic because he doesn't think gender bending should be mandatory, truly a man for all seasons......
won a second term, "we’ll lose America."

O’Rourke said, "There is a concerted, organized attack against immigrants colonists, against people of color, against those who do not look like or pray like or love like the majority in this country. And this moment will define us one way or another. And if we do not wake up to it, I am convinced that we’ll lose America, this country, in our sleep. And we cannot allow that to happen."

He added, "Yes, Democrats have to address those issues and deliver on those issues, but we also have to call out the existential threat, to use the word you just employed, that Donald Trump represents right now. Not only are we going to lose more live, I’m confident that we will lose this country and our democracy the longer he says in office. So that is the urgency behind what I’m talking about."

-Lurid Crime Tales-
'Ball Of Collusion'....Hillary Ruins the Plan
2019-08-18
[National Review] Plan A was to exonerate her and get her elected. Plan B, the failsafe, was an ’insurance policy’ meant to destroy Trump.

There really was a collusion plot. It really did target our election system. It absolutely sought to usurp our capacity for self-determination. It was just not the collusion you’ve been told about for nearly three years. It was not "Donald Trump’s collusion with Russia."

Here is the real collusion scheme: In 2016, the incumbent Democratic administration of President Barack Obama put the awesome powers of the United States government’s law-enforcement and intelligence apparatus in the service of the Hillary Rodham Clinton presidential campaign, the Democratic party, and the progressive Beltway establishment. This scheme had two parts: Plan A, the objective; and Plan B, a fail-safe strategy in case Plan A imploded ‐ which all the smartest people were supremely confident would never, ever happen . . . which is why you could bet the ranch that it would.

Plan A was to get Mrs. Clinton elected president of the United States. This required exonerating her, at least ostensibly, from well-founded allegations of her felonious and politically disqualifying actions.

Plan B was the insurance policy: an investigation that Donald Trump, in the highly unlikely event he was elected, would be powerless to shut down. An investigation that would simultaneously monitor and taint him. An investigation that internalized Clinton-campaign-generated opposition research, limning Trump and his campaign as complicit in Russian espionage. An investigation that would hunt for a crime under the guise of counterintelligence, build an impeachment case under the guise of hunting for a crime, and seek to make Trump un-reelectable under the guise of building an impeachment case.

Upon becoming President Obama’s secretary of state, Clinton improperly set up a private, non-secure system for email communications. It featured her own personal server, stored in her home and, later, maintained by a private contractor. Secretary Clinton used this private email system for all of her official State Department communications, notwithstanding that doing so (a) violated government regulations (which, as the department head, she was responsible for enforcing); (b) violated governmental record-keeping and record-production obligations imposed by federal law; and (c) made it inevitable ‐ due to the nature of her responsibilities ‐ that streams of classified information would flow through and be stored in the non-secure system.

Arrests and shields, metal poles seized at Portland protests
2019-08-18
PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) ‐ Police arrested at least 13 people and seized metal poles, bear spray and other weapons Saturday as hundreds of far-right protesters and anti-fascist counter-demonstrators swarmed downtown Portland, Oregon.

Authorities closed bridges and streets to try to keep the rival groups apart. The city’s mayor said the situation was "potentially dangerous and volatile," and President Donald Trump tweeted "Portland is being watched very closely."

As of early afternoon, most of the right-wing groups had left the area via a downtown bridge. Police used officers on bikes and in riot gear to keep black-clad, helmet- and mask-wearing anti-fascist protesters ‐ known as antifa ‐ from following them.

But hundreds of people remained downtown and on nearby streets, and there were skirmishes throughout the day. Police declared a gathering of mostly left-wing protesters near Pioneer Courthouse Square a "civil disturbance" and told people to leave.

One person was injured and transported via ambulance, and three other people were evaluated by medics, Portland Police spokeswoman Lt. Tina Jones said. The injuries were minor, she said.

Jones said at one point there were about 1,200 on the streets, but that number had fallen to about 400 late in the afternoon.

Rush: Recent Market Turmoil a ‘Dry Run' at a Recession Scare Before 2020 Election
2019-08-17
[Breitbart] Thursday on his nationally syndicated program, conservative talker Rush Limbaugh warned Wednesday market turmoil was a sign of things to come for the 2020 election.

According to Limbaugh, there could be an effort shortly before the 2020 presidential election to create a sense of fear about the economy and the potential for a recession to prevent President Donald Trump’s reelection.

Mexico to deport U.S. citizen suspected of supporting 'violent jihad'
2019-08-17
[Jpost] Mexican authorities arrested a U.S. citizen suspected of supporting krazed killer Islamists in an example of Mexico's security cooperation with the United States even as the two neighbors grapple with sharp disagreements over trade and migration.

The unidentified American man sought by Interpol was under investigation for supporting terrorist groups and will be deported to the United States later on Friday, the Mexico's attorney general's office said in a statement.

The man was detained at a migrants colonists office near Mexico's border with Guatemala in the town of Huehuetan with the help of officials from Mexico's National Migration Institute.

The statement highlighted information from U.S. security officials stating that "the foreigner has probably expressed support for violent jihad and radical Islam on digital platforms."

Mexican authorities did not disclose when the arrest was made or any other details of the man's activities in the country.

The case comes as tens of thousands of mostly Central American migrants colonists have been crossing through Mexico in an attempt to reach the United States, with President Donald Trump
...The tack in the backside of the Democratic Party...
pressuring the Mexican government to do more to reduce the flow.
Ynet adds:
Mexican prosecutors have detained and extradited a U.S. citizen suspected of posting on social media platforms in support of radical Islamic and jihadi movements.

The federal prosecutors' office identified the suspect only as Mohammed, without providing his last name, a usual practice under privacy protection rules.

The office said Friday the FBI had issued an alert for the man, who was detained by immigration agents in the southern state of Chiapas near the Guatemala border.

The man was deported Friday on a flight to Washington D.C.

Trump ends US China trade war; swaps Hong Kong for California
2019-08-16
Washington DC - After months of growing trade tensions between the US and China leading to an impending global recession, along with mounting strife in China's Hong Kong province prompting dissidents to wave American flags, US President Donald Trump has negotiated quite possibly the biggest deal of his life.

The US will trade the entire state of California for Hong Kong in a flat exchange.

"Basically everyone in California wants to be commies and Hong Kong wants to be American, so we did what we call a win-win-win and traded the two in a tremendous deal," Trump said in a press conference announcing the unprecedented deal.

Markets responded with a complete turnaround from recent declines and posted record numbers.

Californians and Hong Kongers were dancing in their respective streets‐Californians happy about the 1-child-only policy and being run by the Communist Party finally!‐and Hong Kong happy about being part of the free world once again.

"This is an amazing day for everyone involved. Everyone should really be happy about this!"

East Coast Elitist Cory Booker Says He Will Create Office to Combat White Supremacy if Elected President
2019-08-16
NEW YORK (Reuters) - U.S. Senator Cory Booker on Thursday said he would create a White House office to combat white supremacy and hate crimes if elected, becoming the latest Democratic presidential candidate to call for action after a racially motivated massacre in Texas.

Booker said he would also require the FBI and the Justice Department to allocate the same level of resources and attention to white supremacist-inspired violence as they devote to international terrorism.

The New Jersey senator announced his plan less than two weeks after a gunman in El Paso, Texas, killed 22 people inside a Walmart after posting an anti-immigrant screed online that echoed some of President Donald Trump's heated rhetoric. The attack was among three mass shootings in the span of a week that killed 34 people in all.

The incidents have roiled the presidential race, with Democrats accusing Trump, a Republican, of fomenting hatred while failing to embrace common-sense gun restrictions. Several candidates, including Senator Kamala Harris on Wednesday, have released plans to fight gun violence and white supremacy in the days since the El Paso massacre.

Trump, who has said he is not a racist, has expressed support in the wake of the shooting for "red flag" laws that limit access to guns for dangerous people and a potential expansion of background checks for gun purchases. He has not endorsed any specific legislation.

Last week, at a historically black church in Charleston, South Carolina, where a white supremacist gunned down nine people in 2015, Booker criticized Trump's language while linking the El Paso shooting to the United States' long history of racism.

"To say this is to speak the truth plainly, because with the truth there can be no reconciliation," said Booker, who is African-American.
