  • Parade panic in NJ: the terrorists have succeeded in scaring public officials, if not the public

    09/13/2019 10:17:36 AM PDT · by Coleus · 15 replies
    After the 9/11 attacks, we began to hear that cliche about how “the terrorists will have won” if we let ourselves become so consumed with fear that we no longer act rationally. Well, the future is now. That’s my reaction to that decision to cancel the annual Labor Day parade in South Plainfield because a guy left some fireworks in a bar in Sea Bright. When I got an email from the Governor’s Office Monday morning saying this year’s parade had been canceled, I figured it might be because of the weather. -snip- Nope. It soon turned out that the...

    Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen on Wednesday defended President Trump's assessment that the situation at the southern border constitutes a national emergency, telling lawmakers that an extended influx in migrants could "overwhelm" the immigration system. Nielsen testified before the House Committee on Homeland Security that illegal immigration "is spiraling out of control and threatening public safety and national security." Democrats pressed her on whether the situation genuinely required Trump's emergency declaration, which the House voted to overturn last week. "Although we may disagree on solutions, I hope there can be a consensus that the current system isn’t working and that...
  • DHS chief: Migrant caravan should turn around because they ‘are not getting in’

    (National Sentinel) Denied: Homeland Security chief Kirstjen Nelsen said during an interview on Sunday that the migrant caravan traipsing towards the United States will “not get in” so they may as well turn around. Reports over the weekend noted that about 1,700 mostly Central American migrants accepted an offer of asylum from Mexico. But thousands more refused, saying they want to be in the U.S. But that’s not going to happen, Nelson said. “There a legal way to get into this country. Those who choose to enter illegally will be stopped,” she told “Fox News Sunday.” Nelson noted that most...

    You've heard it from the showrunner. You've heard it from the star. And now you've heard it from the head of the network: Homeland is indeed ending with its upcoming eighth season. Showtime Networks CEO David Nevins on Monday confirmed the long-speculated news at the Television Critics Association's summer press tour. "I do not want to hear the word 'cancellation,'" Nevins clarified. "[Co-creator and showrunner] Alex Gansa will bring the show to its proper conclusion. Nevins had been previously shy to call it quits on the pay cabler's No. 1 drama, even though Gansa has been implying season eight would...

    The Department of Homeland Security has issued an alert regarding an increased threat, but this one doesn’t involve our nation’s DEFCON level. Nor does it have to do with missiles potentially coming in from North Korea. This alert was an internal warning for DHS employees to be on the lookout for threats coming from our own citizens. They’re citing specific and credible threats coming in from social media and other sources. (Government Executive) In a memo to employees over the weekend, acting Deputy Secretary of Homeland Security Claire Grady said there has been an increase in the number of threats...

    In December, the Daily Caller reported on the “verbally abusive” environment that Chris Matthews has created on the Hardball set, adding that people “felt like they had to ‘walk on eggshells’ around their ‘abusive’ boss.” Matthews flashed that thin skin on this evening’s Hardball. When guest David Corn politely pointed out that the TV series in question was “Homeland,” not “Homefront” as Matthews had said, Matthews snapped: “You going to keep correcting me?” Get the rest of the story and view the video here.

    Okay, I recently started binge watching "Homeland" due to getting a Showtime subscription when I turned off my cable TV and switched to Amazon Prime. I just completed watching Season 1 of "Homeland" last night and I noticed several absurdities with the show. However, the biggest absurdity of them all is: HOW DID A VICE-PRESIDENT BECOME SO POWERFUL? The President on the show is invisible so far but Vice-President Walden is so powerful that he can even order drone missile strikes? Really? In what alternate universe does this happen? Ordering military operations by himself is waaaaay above a vice-president's pay...

    Now, some of the critics watching "Homeland" have — there’s a big story at NewsBusters featuring an interview with the cast. What everybody thinks has happened in Homeland is that after six years of naming Islamofascists as the bad guys, that Americans have become the bad guys. And that’s only half the story. That’s only half of what they’ve done on Homeland. This is amazing. And I’ll get to it in due course.

    Have you been watching Showtime's Homeland? It's deep into jihad-supporting territory. That's nothing new by itself. It's taken a hard turn that way since this season began. Before that, too, but not quite as far as this. The question is, how far? The answer is given by checking who they hired to advise the show: Ramzi Kassem is a Muslim-activist, Gitmo lawyer and columnist for Al-Jazeera. Do you remember when President Obama promised to "close" Guantanamo? Ramzi Kassem opposed those plans because they weren't good enough for the jihadis. To be fair, Obama's plan was always a fraud. Moving Guantanamo...
  • Homeland Security on Twin Cities transit prompts Twitter response

    The presence of Department of Homeland Security (DHS) police officers on light-rail trains in the Twin Cities provoked unease among some passengers Wednesday. Several took to Twitter to express their dismay. But Metro Transit said the DHS officers are part of a Visible Intermodal Prevention and Response (VIPR) team working with its own police force to help ensure security on public trains and buses. The VIPR officers do not engage in any enforcement actions, and have worked with the department for “more than a decade,” said Metro Transit spokesman Howie Padilla.

    LONDON — The UK government on Thursday rolled out a policy stating that refugees can be sent back to their homeland if conditions in their country suddenly improve. The guidelines, drawn up by the Home Office, also state that when refugees apply for settlement protection after their mandatory five-year probation period in the UK, their applications will be "subject to a safe return review." Prime Minister Theresa May outlined her ambition to make these changes in 2015 when she was home secretary. In her address at the Conservative Party conference that year, she said: "When a refugee’s temporary stay of...

    In a shocking development, it has been revealed that the son of legendary boxer Muhammad Ali was detained for hours by immigration officials earlier this month at a Florida airport, and was repeatedly asked about his religion. Muhammad Ali Jr, 44, and his mother, Khalilah Camacho-Ali, the first wife of Muhammad Ali, were arriving at Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport on February 7 after an event in Jamaica, when they were pulled aside while going through customs because of their 'Arabic-sounding names', reports the USA Today quoting Ali's family friend and lawyer Chris Mancini.

    Before I even talk about DHS employees being locked out of the computer system…lets look back at a prior story on DHS. A government watchdog agency is investigating allegations that Department of Homeland Security officials improperly attempted to breach the Georgia secretary of state’s internal elections network last year. In a Jan. 17 letter to Georgia Secretary of State Brian Kemp, DHS Inspector General John Roth said his office was probing “a series of ten alleged scanning events of the Georgia Secretary of State’s network” that may have originated from DHS-affiliated IP addresses. DHS IG spokeswoman Erica Paulson confirmed the...

    On Trial: Lawsuits Against Trump On ‘Muslim Immigration Ban’ Will Fail Fast by Robert Barnes | 10:09 am, January 28th, 2017 Council American-Islamic Relations announced an intention to sue President Donald Trump over his executive order banning most immigrants from Syria, and other countries that lack certain vetting standards and have issues with terrorism. Overnight, refugees who were in the air on the way to the United States are now being detained, and have also filed legal actions. The ban is perceived by some as a partial Muslim ban. Either way, at any trial, the law supports Trump’s order, and...
