    RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) ó A former North Carolina police chief whose mother is Italian and father is Somali said Sunday that heís disappointed with his country of 42 years after he was detained at John F. Kennedy International Airport. Former Greenville Police Chief Hassan Aden of Alexandria, Virginia, who now works as a law enforcement consultant, said he was detained March 13 on his return trip from Paris for his motherís 80th birthday. He supports the officers of the U.S. Customs and Border Patrol, but he believes his 90-minute detention was unreasonable, he said in a telephone interview.

    A Welsh Muslim teacher filmed the moment he was made to feel like a 'criminal' when he was hauled off a US-bound flight in front of his students. Juhel Miah, 25, was due to fly to New York from Reykjavik with students from Llangatwg Comprehensive in Aberdulais, Neath Port Talbot, South Wales, when a US official escorted him off the plane in an 'unjustified act of discrimination'. The maths teacher - who has a British passport and a valid visa for travel - was not given a reason, but was forced to stay in a 'horrendous' hotel until school officials...

    Waiting on a routine flight from Sacramento back to Santa Barbara, Rep. Tom McClintock, R-Calif., discovered he was a terrorist. Or at least thatís what the FBI thought. McClintock was clearly more of a frequent flyer than radical extremist. But a classic case of mistaken identity, not ties to terrorism, landed him on the FBIís no-fly list. A well-known state senator at the time, McClintock was left stranded at the Sacramento International Airport about 10 years ago. He couldnít fly home under his own name.
  • Why not just strip away all rights of those on watch lists?

    07/03/2016 4:19:58 AM PDT · by UpStateNY · 26 replies
    Iíve heard a lot lately about restricting those on the ďterror watch listĒ or ďno-fly listĒ from purchasing a firearm. I get the appeal, because no logical person wants to enable a bad person to do bad things. But if weíre going to restrict the Second Amendment for these people without due process, why stop at just one amendment if it means saving lives? Should people on a terror watch list be allowed to attend a suspected radicalized house of worship? Why allow them to congregate at all? Why is a person suspected of planning terror allowed to have a...

    Perhaps it is the "No Fly" list itself that we should be investigating? The latest version of the Democrats strategy of denying constitutional rights and due process in the race for a socialist utopia with them in controlóis ďNo Buy, No Fly.Ē The contention is that anyone on the ďNo FlyĒ list should not be able to purchase a gun. No conviction, no due process, no appeal, no knowledge of why you are on the list, no way off the list, and itís all shrouded in government secrecy, as is all future control of your life.

    Greg Nash Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) on Thursday cut the legs out from a bipartisan effort to keep suspected terrorists from buying guns. In doing so, McConnell, a master of the Senateís arcane rules, provided cover for vulnerable Republicans who wanted to be seen as supporting the effort, but did not want to cross the National Rifle Association. ďThe scenario that Sen. McConnell set up was textbook McConnell,Ē said Brian Darling, a former Senate Republican aide. McConnell had promised a vote this week to Sen. Susan Collins (R-Maine) on her bipartisan measure barring people on two key...

    Senators on Tuesday rolled out a bipartisan bill aimed at stopping suspected terrorists from buying a gun, as lawmakers try to overcome a stalemate on the issue. "Essentially we believe that if you are too dangerous to fly on an airplane, you are too dangerous to buy a gun," Sen. Susan Collins (R-Maine) told reporters. The legislation would allow the attorney general to block the sale of a gun if an individual is on the "no-fly" list or the so-called "selectee" list, which requires additional screening at an airport. Collins said the two lists affect approximately 109,000 people, most...

    Omar Mateenís father and wife were added to the USí no-fly list as investigators try to determine what role they played in the Orlando massacre in which 49 club-goers were killed and 53 injured. Federal officials have added Omarís father, Seddique Mateen, and his wife, Noor Salman, to the governmentís no-fly list, according to NBC News, although a spokesman for the US Government Terrorist Screening Database would not confirm that. ďDisclosure of an individualís inclusion or non-inclusion in the TSDB or on the No Fly List would significantly impair the governmentís ability to investigate and counteract terrorism and protect transportation...

    Attorney General Loretta Lynch overruled FBI Director James B. Comey on Thursday, saying the Obama administration does support a ban on firearms sales to those on terrorist watch lists. Mr. Comey last year had told Congress that the ban could end up alerting suspected terrorists that they are being investigated, and that could ďblowĒ the cases his agents are trying to build. But his superiors at the Justice Department rejected that, issuing a statement Thursday saying they want to see Congress approve the ďno-fly, no-buyĒ plan Democrats are pursuing. ďThe amendment gives the Justice Department an important additional tool to...

    During a PBS town hall meeting, president Obama was asked why he and Hillary want to control and restrict guns and ammunition to responsible gun owners. Obama's response was the typical stock answer of rejecting the "notion" that anyone is hell-bent on taking away "folks' guns", yada yada. However, as AllOutdoor notes, if you listen carefully to Obama's full response, there is a comment Obama gives about knowing browser history that should sent everyone into a blind rage. "I just came from a meeting, today, in the situation room, in which Iíve got people who we know have been on...

    In two federal lawsuits this week, CAIR alleges that the U.S. governmentís terror watch list is unconstitutional because it violates the rights of individuals on the list, according to a report by Courthouse News Service. ... Executive Director of CAIR Dawud Walid said that if the federal government was going to track Islamic extremism, it should also surveillance Donald Trump supporters. "I think the question is, are we going to be selective about this?" Walid said. "Are we following people and placing people on this list who go to KKK meetings, people who go to Donald Trump rallies?"
  • Banning Gun Sales to People on No-Fly List May Not Be Constitutional, Experts Say (Capt Obvious)

    On Thursday, Connecticut Gov. Dannel Malloy announced plans to issue an executive order barring anyone listed on federal terrorist watch lists from purchasing a gun in the state. But while the idea of ‚Äúno fly, no gun‚ÄĚ has found growing support following the mass shooting in San Bernardino last week, including that of President Obama, experts say such a policy may be unconstitutional. The problem lies with the terrorist watch lists themselves, which are both secret and routinely updated without the typical due process given to those who are accused of breaking the law, such as court proceedings. Without a...

    THE BODIES of the San Bernardino victims were still warm, and President Obama conceded that officials didn't "know that much yet" about the circumstances or motives of the killers. But that didn't stop him from exploiting the moment to call for more gun control. There was the usual shopworn pitch for "stronger background checks." There was also a demand that anyone on the "no-fly" list be prohibited from buying guns. "We have a no-fly list where people can't get on planes," Obama told CBS News, "but those same people who we don't allow to fly could go into a store...

    Last week during a visit to The Herald News, U.S. Rep. Joseph Kennedy III spoke about the difficulty of addressing the issue of gun control in Congress. From Herald News reporter Michael Holtzman's report: He remembered his freshman orientation to Congress at the John F. Kennedy School of Government at Harvard University. The mass shooting of innocent children and teaching staff at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Connecticut, happened that day. Kennedy spoke of the Colorado Springs, Colorado, killing of three people at a Planned Parenthood clinic, including a campus police officer, a week ago and then a much...

During the presser, the FBI also said that they had some evidence that Malik and Syed Farook had been in contact with ‚Äúforeign terrorist organizations‚ÄĚ as well: The FBI is investigating the fatal shooting of 14 people in California by a married couple as an ‚Äúact of terrorism,‚ÄĚ officials said on Friday, noting the wife was believed to have pledged allegiance to...

Set up by The Man for the crime of being Muslim. Back in 2012 and 2013, the Leftist/Islamic supremacist axis was working hard, wanting you to weep for Saadiq Long. MSNBC's Chris Hayes, hard-Left activist Glenn Greenwald, and the Hamas-linked Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) all pitched in to make Long a martyr of "Islamophobia" and howling at the injustice done to him. But they aren't howling so...

    A man, who just two years ago was the poster boy for the far-Left media's attacks against the U.S. government's no-fly list for "unfairly" targeting Muslims, finds himself and several family members sitting in a Turkish prison -- arrested earlier this month near the Turkey-Syria border as members of an ISIS cell. It's a long way from 2013 when Saadiq Long's cause was being championed by MSNBC's Chris Hayes, Glenn Greenwald, and Mother Jones, and was being represented by the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) terror front. His story got considerable media attention when his CAIR media representatives here pushed...

    U.S. authorities are seeking to revoke the citizenship of an Oregon imam who they say tried to conceal past associations with radical Islamic groups. Mohamed Sheikh Abdirahman Kariye raised money, recruited fighters and provided training for insurgent groups battling Soviet forces in Afghanistan in the 1980s, the U.S. Department of Justice says in a complaint filed Monday in U.S. District Court in Portland. Kariye was one of more than a dozen people who filed a lawsuit challenging the no-fly list, winning last year a court order saying the government must provide information about why people are on the list.

President Barack Obama rejected the proposal on Friday. Reid also backed the Obama administrationís approach to the deadly, expressing...
