VIDEO: 400 Caribbean Migrants March Through Mexican Checkpoint near Texas Border; Haitians Paid $10,000 To Get To Del Rio
[Breitbart] Hundreds of Caribbean migrants trying to reach the U.S. border walked through an immigration checkpoint operated by Mexican authorities. The group is trying to reach the border city of Reynosa before crossing the Rio Grande to Texas.

The incident took place on Saturday morning north of the city of San Fernando, Tamaulipas, approximately 80 miles from Texas. Between 400-500 migrants, primarily from Haiti, were traveling from Veracruz to Reynosa when Mexican authorities turned back their buses. Rather than stop, the migrants walked toward the rural city where they rested and renewed their march the same day.

The group walked north and as they got close to a federal checkpoint, they stopped and held a prayer service with local church leaders. After, the migrants walked past the checkpoint expecting authorities to try to stop them, however, officials stood down.

Several miles down the road, another group of federal authorities managed to forcibly stop some of the migrants by loading them onto vans bound for Veracruz, where migrants interviewed by Breitbart Texas claimed they were released. It remains unclear how many Caribbean migrants were taken to Veracruz.

How desperate Haitians are paying up to $10,000 and traveling thousands of miles by foot, coach, boat to cross into America from Mexico and reach 'safety' in isolated Del Rio
[Daily Mail, where America gets its news]
  • Some 15,000 Haitians have illegally crossed from the Mexican border to the Texan town of Del Rio

  • The huge surge in Haitians travelling to the U.S. - Mexican border has been in the making for years as they migrated from South America after 2010 earthquake

  • But now there is a perfect storm due to hardships caused by the coronavirus pandemic, a devastating earthquake in Haiti last month and political instability

  • Many of the Haitians aiming to reach the U.S. are traveling from both Haiti and other South American countries such as Chile and Brazil

  • Some are flying directly from Haiti to Ecuador before crossing international state borders via foot or coach

Female Afghan judges detained in self-prison
[KhaamaPress] As per the CNN
...the organization formerly known as the Cable News Network. Now who knows what it might stand for...
report, the former female Afghan judges have been self-detained for the fear of reprisal from those who were once enjugged
Drop the heater, Studs, or you're hist'try!
after their judgments and have now been released.

Thousands of prisoners have been freed throughout Afghanistan by the Taliban
...Arabic for students...
after they took over the country.

They claim that the ex-prisoners have been searching for them for Dire Revenge and one of the female judges has said that she has repeatedly been called by unknown numbers after the Taliban takeover.In the meantime, tens of female judges who managed to flee the country are now abroad but hundreds are hidden.

Female judges usually dealt with the cases of women’s rights violation, women’s torture, rapes, murder, and family harassment.
None of which, according to the Talib’s takfiri view of Sharia, are crimes.
Along with other female employees in Afghanistan, female judges have also been at their homes and have been told not to go to their jobs.

CDC: Afghans Arriving in U.S. Infected with Measles, Malaria, Tuberculosis
[Breitbart] President Joe Biden’s administration is bringing Afghans to the United States who are carrying viruses such as measles, malaria, tuberculosis, as well as the Chinese coronavirus, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).

On Monday, the CDC announced that the thousands of Afghans continuing to be brought to the U.S. by the Biden administration for permanent resettlement will be required to be vaccinated against measles though there has not been any indication that they are likewise mandated to take the coronavirus vaccine.

CDC officials wrote in a release:

As of September 20, 2021, CDC has been notified by public health departments of 16 measles cases among the evacuees. All patients confirmed to have measles have been isolated and provided care, and their contacts have been quarantined. Contacts who were not immune were given the MMR vaccine or, if not vaccine-eligible, immunoglobulin. [Emphasis added]

Evacuees who are in the United States are required to be vaccinated with MMR and complete a 21-day quarantine from the time of vaccination at U.S. ‘Safe Haven’ designated locations, such as military bases. [Emphasis added]

The move comes as there have been measles outbreaks at a number of U.S. military bases where the Biden administration is temporarily housing tens of thousands of Afghans. The military bases where Afghans are staying include:

  • Marine Corps Base in Quantico, Virginia
  • Fort Pickett in Virginia
  • Fort Lee in Virginia
  • Holloman Air Force Base in New Mexico
  • Fort McCoy in Wisconsin
  • Fort Bliss in Texas
  • Fort Dix in New Jersey
  • Camp Atterbury in Indiana

    In addition to measles, CDC officials revealed that some Afghans brought to the U.S. have spurred outbreaks of viruses such as varicella, mumps, tuberculosis, malaria, leishmaniasis, hepatitis A, and coronavirus.

    Thousands of Afghans who remain at overseas military bases will be required to take a measles vaccine and wait 21 days before being brought to the U.S. by the Biden administration.

    Biden has said he hopes to resettle about 95,000 Afghans across the U.S. over the next 12 months. In a 21-day period from August to September, Biden brought more than 48,000 Afghans to the U.S. for resettlement — a population more than four times that of Jackson, Wyoming.

    Sudanese army foils coup attempt by Islamist officers
    [Sudan Tribune] Islamist officers in the Sudanese army tried to seize power in Khartoum on Tuesday morning but their attempted coup has been foiled. Military and civilian Sudanese officials confirmed the aborted coup but until now the transitional government did not issue a statement about the situation.

    In the early hours of Tuesday morning, Member of the Sovereign Council Mohammed al-Faki who is also its front man issued a short call on social media to the Sudanese to take to the street to "protect the democratic transition."

    Later, in a second post, he reassured the public saying the situation is under control.

    Sources say the military intelligence identified the putschist elements in several corps of the Sudanese army and arrested them except the Armoured Corp.

    The headquarters of this army is now surrounded by the army because some of them are retrenched inside its building. Some reports speak about ongoing negotiations with them to convince them to surrender.

    Names of several Islamists officers in the army have been circulated but there are no official confirmations.

    The military component in the transitional government did not purge the army from the Islamists officers hoping that the esprit de corps would prevail and support the democratic change.

    The coup aimed at controlling the Sudanese Army General Command, the official radio, television buildings, and the bridges linking the three parties of the capital Khartoum.

    Sudanese government says the "situation under control" after failed Islamist coup

    [Sudan Tribune] The Sudanese government officially confirmed that all the military involved in the failed coup have been arrested and the situation is under control.

    "Today Tuesday, September 21 at dawn, the army put down an attempted coup by a group of officers affiliated with the remnants of the former regime," said Information Minister Hamza Balloul in a press statement released today.

    "The army thwarts a coup attempt, more details later," said the army spokesman Tahir Abu Haja in a very short statement.

    Balloul added that the coup plotters military and civilians have been arrested including those who were in the Armoured Corps in the Shagara suburb south of Khartoum.

    The putschist elements in the last to surrender.

    Military sources identified the military involved in the foiled coup as Islamist officers affiliated with the former regime.

    Local media said 18 militaries have been arrested, including Maj-Genl Abdel Basset Bakraoui, who is likely to be the commander of the operation.

    The Sudan Tribune learned that Bakraoui had been in Cairo for several months. He is suspected to have been planned the operation there with the Sudanese Islamist residing in Egypt.

    The Sudanese Minister of Information stressed that the components of the transitional government are working in complete coordination, adding that the situation is "under complete control."

    About three o’clock in the morning, the army thwarted an attempt by the putschists to take control of the radio and TV stations, which are located side-by-side.

    Pro-democracy activists already launched a campaign against the head of the Transitional Sovereign Council Abdel Fattah al-Burhan saying he rejected calls to purge the army from the Islamist officers.
    The Times of Israel adds:
    A military official said an unspecified number of troops from the armored corps were behind the attempt and that they tried to take over several government institutions but were stopped in their tracks. He said they had aimed to seize the military headquarters and the state television.

    The official, who spoke on condition of anonymity because he was not authorized to brief the media, said over three dozen troops, including high-ranking officers, have been arrested. He did not provide further details, saying that a military statement would be released shorty.
    And from another Times of Israel article:
    The military said that “most” of those involved had been apprehended, including 11 officers.

    Boko Haram Terrorists Attacked Kogi Prison, Gave Chief Imam In Jail Assault Rifle To Join Attack
    [SAHARAREPORTERS] Gunmen who recently broke into the correctional centre in Kabba in the Kabba/Bunu Local Government Area of Kogi State, are Boko Haram
    ...Nigeerian Islamist group, formerly paying homage to al-Qaeda, then, when the money ran out, to the Islamic State, and headed by nutcase Abu Bakr Shekau. Once he exploded in a gunfight with ISWAP, many in the group surrendered to the govt and others went with their new overlords. The remainder are a shell of their former selves, stmbling glassy-eyed and lonely through the Sambisa Forest and the soothing waters of Lake Chad, asking themselves What is truth?, or maybe just I wonder what's for dinner? I hope it's not rhinocerous again! ...
    terrorists, SaharaReporters learnt.

    A source also told SaharaReporters on Monday that after their arrival, the turbans gave an auto assault rifle to the Chief Imam for the inmates, said to be a Boko Haram commander.

    According to the source, the Boko Haram commander, an inmate of the prison, had taken up the role of Chief Imam at the correctional centre, leading other Moslems to prayer.

    "It was Boko Haram turbans that broke into Kabba prison," the source said.

    "The Chief Imam for the inmates is apparently a Boko Haram commander, and when the button men arrived, they handed him an auto assault rifle."

    Just a week ago, SaharaReporters reported how some prisoners button men attacked the correctional centre in Kabba, freeing inmates.

    The prisoners who were in their hundreds were said to have escaped after the button men attacked the prison located along Kabba-Lokoja highway late on Sunday, September 12.

    Though security officers comprising 15 soldiers, 10 coppers, and 10 armed guards of the Nigerian Correctional Service (NCoS) were at the facility at the time of the attack, the button men were able to break into it.

    They killed a soldier and a policeman during the attack, Sola Fasure, media adviser to the Minister of Interior, Rauf Aregbesola, had said in a statement.

    The assailants thereafter set the prisoners free.

    The early morning downpour on Monday aided their escape as the building housing the inmates was reportedly submerged by flood.

    According to the statement, the Kabba custodial facility had 294 inmates as of the time of the attack, and only 28 inmates did not escape.

    It said many of the 266 inmates initially unaccounted for were able to escape after the button men used explosives to destroy three sides of the perimeter fence.

    Later, Sesan Nihi, the Kogi correctional service front man said no fewer than 114 inmates from the Kabba Correctional Centre had voluntarily returned or been rearrested.

    Nihi was quoted as saying, "We have about 114 inmates back now. Some of the inmates returned themselves but I cannot give a definite figure for that. In fact, two just returned not too long ago. Some of the inmates were brought back by their parents.

    "We have a search party with other security agencies to capture the remaining inmates."

    Nigerian Army Secretly Contacts Families As Boko Haram Fighters Kill 25 Soldiers In Borno
    [SAHARAREPORTERS] The Nigerian Army has refused to make a public statement five days after faceless myrmidons from the Islamic State
    ...formerly ISIS or ISIL, depending on your preference. Before that they were al-Qaeda in Iraq, as shaped by Abu Musab Zarqawi. They're really very devout, committing every atrocity they can find in the Koran and inventing a few more. They fling Allah around with every other sentence, but to hear western pols talk they're not really Moslems....
    -backed faction of Boko Haram
    ...not to be confused with Procol Harum, Harum Scarum, possibly to be confused with Helter Skelter. The Nigerian version of al-Qaeda and the Taliban rolled together and flavored with a smigeon of distinctly Subsaharan ignorance and brutality...
    , the Islamic State West Africa Province (ISWAP), formerly known as Jamā'at Ahl as-Sunnah lid-Da'wah wa'l-Jihād killed at least 25 soldiers in Borno State.

    SaharaReporters gathered that the soldiers were on patrol to clear some Boko Haram elements in Monguno area on September 16, 2021 when they were ambushed by the murderous Moslems.

    The deadly attack left about 25 soldiers dead while some are still missing five days after the incident.

    ...back at the shootout, bullets whapped! around Butch as he tried to tie his scarf around his shoulder as a tourniquet......
    the Nigerian Army secretly contacted some of the families of the dear departed, informing them that their loved ones had been deposited in a morgue.

    SaharaReporters gathered that military operational vehicles, several weapons and ammunition were stolen during the attack.

    Monguno is north, about 70km drive from Maiduguri, the state capital and hosted thousands of Internally Displaced Persons mostly from Dikwa and Marte council areas.

    "At least 25 soldiers have been confirmed dead, the authorities have contacted some of their families, their bodies are already deposited at the morgue," a source told SaharaReporters on Monday evening.

    The attack comes a few days after the bully boyz killed 10 Nigerian soldiers after dislodging a military base in Rann, the administrative headquarters of Kala-Balge Local Government Area of Borno State.

    Authorities of the Nigeria Army have, however, been silent on both incidents.

    Boko Haram and its offshoot, Islamic State West Africa Province, have killed thousands and displaced millions in North-Eastern Nigeria.

    Caribbean-Latin America
    Options Shrink for Haitian Migrants Straddling Texas Border
    [AnNahar] The options remaining for thousands of Haitian migrants colonists straddling the Mexico-Texas border are narrowing as the United States government ramps up to an expected six expulsion flights to Haiti Tuesday and Mexico began busing some away from the border.

    More than 6,000 Haitians and other migrants colonists had been removed from an encampment at Del Rio, Texas, U.S. officials said Monday as they defended a strong response that included immediately expelling migrants colonists to their impoverished Caribbean country and faced criticism for using horse patrols to stop them from entering the town.
    But only a portion of those removed were actually sent back to Haiti, the rest apparently being sent elsewhere in the U.S. to be processed.
    That was enough for some Haitian migrants colonists to return to Mexico, while others struggled to decide on which side of the border to take their chances.

    They did a couple of planes for photo ops. Once they have been taken away from the TV cameras, they're being flown out and dispersed throughout the US.

    Home Front: WoT
    Grateful Refugee Pleads Guilty to Plot to Bomb Pittsburgh Church
    Another vicious idiot whose very bestest jihad buddy is an FBI informant.
    [PJMedia] If one of those fabled white supremacist terrorists that Biden's handlers keep telling us are the biggest terror threat in America today had been caught plotting to bomb a mosque, you can bet you would have heard about it. But the news Thursday that a Muslim named Mustafa Mousab Alowemer pleaded guilty to a jihad plot to bomb a Pittsburgh church, the Legacy International Worship Center, got little notice. That's no surprise: the story doesn't fit the narrative of either Biden's handlers or the establishment media, which is that there is no significant jihad terror threat, and a much bigger problem is the "Islamophobia" of Trump’s bloodthirsty MAGA legions. Back in the real world, the guilty plea is a small reminder of what the real threat really is.

    There is another reason why both the administration and the media would rather have this story go away, amid the chaos at the Southern border and just after the catastrophe in Afghanistan: Alowemer, 23, came to the United States from Syria as a refugee when he was 18. Yet he doesn't exactly fit the image of a grateful refugee, eager to become a part of our glorious multicultural mosaic. He told investigators, according to the criminal complaint against him, that "his motivation to detonate a device at the Church was to support the cause of ISIS and to inspire other ISIS sympathizers in the United States to join together and commit similar acts in the name of ISIS." He added that he "also targeted the Church, which he described as Christian and Nigerian, in order to "take revenge for our [ISIS] brothers in Nigeria." Christians are suffering fierce persecution from Muslims in Nigeria, but as far as Alowemer was concerned, this meant only that they were infidels at war with Allah, and he thirsted for revenge.

    The young jihadi wanted to maximize the casualty count. The Associated Press reported that Alowemer had "detailed plans" to bomb the church, including a particularly cruel touch: "Federal prosecutors said at the plea hearing that he talked about potentially planting a second explosive device, timing the detonation to coincide with when first responders would begin to arrive."

    The criminal complaint also inadvertently reveals the cluelessness of the FBI regarding the beliefs, motives, and goals of Islamic jihadists. It states:

    In or around April 2018, the FBI identified a social networking account with display name "Mustafa Alowemer" as likely belonging to Alowemer. Notably, the "Intro" section of the social networking account included a phrase in Arabic text that an FBI linguist translated as "hoping to Allah that he dies in a way that does not require the traditional funeral cleansing and burial rituals." This same FBI linguist interpreted this statement to mean that Alowemer wanted to die by being blown up, which would render traditional Islamic funeral rituals unnecessary or impossible.

    Well, yes, but the FBI linguist seems to have omitted the key point: In a tradition, Muhammad ordered that the bodies of the martyrs are not to be washed, as the blood and gore with which they may be covered is attractive to the virgins of paradise. Alowemer didn't necessarily have to be blown up, but simply to die in the process of killing infidels, as the Qur'an promises paradise to those who "kill and are killed" for Allah (9:111). If Alowemer had succeeded in mounting his attack and the FBI was there expecting him to try to blow himself up, they could have been completely wrongfooted.
    Expect the tempo of these attacks to increase over the next year.

    #1  By an age-old rule of thumb, every 10 tons of raw opium reduces to one ton of heroin. In other words, the worldwide opium output in 1996 translates into 430 tons of heroin. About half of that is destined for the United States.

    Southeast Asia
    Alleged Islamic State Recruiter Arrested in Southern Philippines
    [BenarNews] A Filipino man suspected of facilitating the recruitment of new fighters for the regional branch of the Islamic State
    ...formerly ISIS or ISIL, depending on your preference. Before that they were al-Qaeda in Iraq, as shaped by Abu Musab Zarqawi. They're really very devout, committing every atrocity they can find in the Koran and inventing a few more. They fling Allah around with every other sentence, but to hear western pols talk they're not really Moslems....
    turban group has been arrested in the southern Philippines, police said Tuesday.

    The suspect, identified as Samer Ali, 29, was caught on Monday when government forces raided his hideout in Polomolok, a town in the foothills of an imposing mountain range in South Cotabato province, police said.

    Arresting officers seized a grenade from the suspect, who is also being sought for murder, according to provincial police commander Col. Jemuel Siason, who did not provide details about the alleged crime.

    The man was suspected of "facilitating the recruitment for new members of the Islamic State" in Polomolok and the nearby municipality of T’boli, Siason told BenarNews.

    "We surveilled his movements prior to the arrest," Siason said. "He is now detained."

    Officials said Islamic snuffies frequently fled to the jungles and mountains of South Cotabato to serve as hideouts from military operations.

    In January, five members of the Ansar al-Khilafah Philippines (AKP), a Filipino turban group linked with Islamic State (IS), were killed during raids in South Cotabato. In the same month, four family members allegedly working with AKP were killed in another operation in T’boli town, according to police.

    IS-linked snuffies were blamed for a siege in 2017 that led to a five-month battle with government forces, leaving the southern city of Marawi in ruins. AKP snuffies allegedly joined the fighting.

    While about 1,200 turbans, security forces and non-combatants were killed in the battle that ended in October 2017, authorities said those who escaped spread across Mindanao in the south and have set out to recruit Moslem fighters across the mainly Catholic country.

    Rommel Banlaoi, a counter-terrorism analyst at the Philippine Institute for Peace, Violence and Terrorism Research, said the recent fall of Afghanistan to the Taliban
    ...Arabic for students...
    Death Eater movement could lead snuffies there to reach parts of Southeast Asia, including the southern Philippines.

    "They can apply as refugees to penetrate the Philippines," Banlaoi said.

    ...back at the game, the Babe was wondering why the baseball kept getting bigger and bigger. Finally it hit him...
    Banlaoi identified the new leader of the Maute turban group as Commander Ker Mimbantas, also known as Commander Zacaria. The Mautes were a core group of snuffies who helped carry out the Marawi siege.

    Mimbantas, a senior Maute turban, has more than 40 followers, some of whom used to work with planners of the Marawi siege, according to Banlaoi.

    "Recently, the group of Mimbantas clashed with the military in Munai town in Lanao del Norte province. Also, they released a video of their ongoing training," Banlaoi told BenarNews.

    The military intelligence unit in the south has said it has seen a copy of the training video and are seeking to verify the information.

    UNRWA Head Alarmed by Incidents at Two Lebanon Palestinian Camps
    [AnNahar] Phillipe Lazzarini, the head of the U.N. Paleostinian refugee agency UNRWA, has said that he is "very alarmed" by two "major" security developments that happened at two Paleostinian refugees camps in Leb
    ...an Iranian colony situated on the eastern Mediterranean, conveniently adjacent to Israel. Formerly inhabited by hardy Phoenecian traders, its official language is now Arabic, with the usual unpleasant side effects. The Leb civil war, between 1975 and 1990, lasted a little over 145 years and produced 120,000 fatalities. The average length of a ceasefire was measured in seconds. The Lebs maintain a precarious sectarian balance among Shiites, Sunnis, and about a dozeen flavors of Christians. It is the home of Hezbollah, which periodically starts a war with the Zionist Entity, gets Beirut pounded to rubble, and then declares victory and has a parade. The Lebs have the curious habit of periodically murdering their heads of state or prime ministers, a practice dating back to the heady human sacrifice days of Baal Moloch. In 2020 Hezbollahblew up a considerable portion of Beirut and many of its inhabitants when its ammonium nitrate faci8lity exploded. They blamed it on... somebody else. It wasn't them though. Trust them on that...
    over the weekend.

    On the morning of September 19, protesters from the temporary housing units near the Nahr al-Bared refugee camp broke into the UNRWA construction site office, causing severe damage to the premises and to seven Agency vehicles. No one was injured.

    "This incident came in the aftermath of a series of thefts in our installations in the camp over the last few weeks. Paleostinian faction leaders condemned the incident and the thefts and pledged their support to ensure these incidents would not occur again," Lazzarini said in a statement.

    On the same day, in the Ain al-Hilweh camp, in the south of Lebanon, fighting between the Fatah and Jund al-Sham armed factions erupted, and fighters "entered four UNRWA schools," Lazzarini added.

    Seven people were maimed because of the fighting there, including two civilians in Sidon. Lazzarini said Paleostinian faction leaders have condemned the incident and have committed to investigate it.

    "I strongly condemn these incidents, which severely undermine the neutrality and inviolability of our premises and put at serious risk the protection and security of Paleostine refugees, UNRWA personnel and property. UNRWA is requesting that all parties commit to respect the Agency’s neutrality and the inviolability of its installations at all times and to take all measures necessary to ensure that incidents to the contrary are not repeated," he added.

    Lazzarini also said that he continues to be "extremely concerned" about the deteriorating situation in Lebanon as a whole and its "significant impact on Paleostine refugees who were already among the most vulnerable communities."

    "UNRWA is a front-row witness to the immense needs and the high level of poverty among Paleostine refugees in Lebanon. The Agency is sparing no effort to advocate for additional support to the Paleostine refugee community in Lebanon," he said.

    "In order to continue to deliver critical services, UNRWA needs both additional financial support and full respect for the safety of its personnel as well as for the inviolability of its installations at all times," he added.

    Leb Army Arrests IS-linked Terrorist Cell in Tripoli
    [AnNahar] The Military Intelligence arrested in Tripoli

    organization," the Army Command said in a statement Tuesday.

    The cell had purchased individual weapons and ammunition in order to carry out terrorist attacks.

    "The cell members sought to recruit other people to help them," the statement said.

    According to the Army command, the cell had started its activity last June and carried out the liquidation of the retired first adjutant Ahmed Murad in Tripoli on August 22, 2021.

    The detainees are being interrogated under the supervision of the competent judiciary, the Army stated.
