On Black Friday, FBI trying to keep track of 48 known Islamic radicals in the US

The FBI is pulling out all the stops to try and keep track of 48 Islamic radicals who may carry out a terrorist attack.  Elite surveillance teams consisting of up to a dozen agents, along with assistance from local law enforcement, are watching the radicals 24-7.
But the problem is that these suvelliance operations are enormously expensive and take manpower away from other anti-terror operations.
“There is a very significant number of people that are on suspicious watch lists, under surveillance," Republican Sen. Dan Coats said.   
Coats, who sits on the Select Committee on Intelligence, would not comment on specifics, but said the around-the-clock surveillance is a major commitment for the bureau. "The FBI together with law enforcement agencies across the country are engaged in this. It takes enormous amount of manpower to do this on a 24-7 basis.  It takes enormous amount of money to do this," Coats explained.
These elite FBI teams are reserved for espionage, mob violence and high-priority terrorism cases, like a joint terrorism task force case last June, where a 26 year old suspect Usaama Rahim, was killed outside a Massachusetts CVS. When a police officer and FBI agent tried to question him, the Boston Police Commissioner said Rahim threatened them with a knife, and was shot dead. 
With at least a dozen agents assigned to each case, providing 24/7 coverage, this high level of surveillance reflects the severe risk associated with suspects most likely to attempt copycat attacks after Paris. 
"It is a big resource drain. Yes it is. Almost overwhelming," Coats said when asked about the demand placed on the FBI. "There will be a lot of people over the Thanksgiving weekend that will not be enjoying turkey with their family. They'll be out there providing security for the American people and the threat is particularly high during this holiday period."
One of the lessons of Paris is that the radicalization process can be swift. According to published reports, friends of the female suspect who was killed in the siege of Saint Denis, Hasna Ait Boulahcen, abandoned her party life only a month before joining her cousin, Abdelhamid Abaaoud, the plot's on the ground commander. He was also killed in the siege.
FBI Director James Comey has consistently drawn attention to this phenomenon, calling it the "flash to bang," that the time between radicalization and crossing the threshold to violent action can be very short. Last week, in a rare public appearance with Attorney General Loretta Lynch, Comey would only say that "dozens" of suspected radicals have been under "tight surveillance."

You would think that if they were here illegally, they already would have been deported.  So those 48 must be either citizens or legal immigrants.
The first question is, why can't we deport these people before they strike?  As long as the Islamic radicals do not commit an overt illegal act, the Constitution guarantees their protection.  I don't know what criteria the FBI uses to determine why these 48 are more dangerous than others, but you would think that if they had written about committing a violent act of terror, or said something about committing violence, this would be enough to get them bounced out of the U.S.  Since they're still here, any threats they may have made must not have risen to the legal definition of "terrorist threat."

I know it's splitting legal hairs, but the FBI is constrained from making arrests in most cases because of due process.  But the Constitution is not a suicide pact.  Some way must be found to do more than keep these radicals under survellance.

How Green Energy Really Works

After this week's vaporization of $29 billion of liabilities ($230 million of which was owed to the US Taxpayer) amid Abengoa's bankruptcy (Spain's 'Solyndra'), we thought it worth reminding the world's greater fools just how "green" energy works...

As Pater Tenebrarum noted, oh so eloquently,
Businesses that cannot possibly survive without subsidies are ipso facto not economically viable. In spite of all the high-minded pronouncements about the “need to save the planet” and how this valiant effort can allegedly be “combined with economic growth”, their existence serves primarily one function: to distribute money looted from taxpayers and consumers to assorted cronies of the political class, who in turn provide the latter with kickbacks. That is all there is to it.

Surely no-one is so na├»ve as to believe that modern-day politicians, whose horizon and time preferences never stretch beyond the next election date, are really concerned about what might happen to the planet a century hence (not to mention that the entire “climate change” religion seems to be little more than an elaborate hoax). With Abengoa’s bankruptcy we are once again presented with a bill that serves as a stark reminder how much scarce capital has been wasted on such schemes.

Ultimately it is little more than a modern form of highway robbery, clad in highly effective propaganda. Many people feel guilty about “consumerism”, believing that it must be true that prosperity and progress are somehow sinful. In reality, environmentalism has long become the home of a great many authoritarian leftists after they lost their former sugar daddy in Moscow in 1990.

They are trying – very successfully it saddens us to admit – to undermine free market capitalism by appealing to people’s sense of guilt and their innate need to receive absolution for their sins. And they have of course found out that their new sugar daddy is much better than their old one, as there is far more wealth ready to be looted and everybody involved is quite happy to get a cut. Occasionally reality has a habit of interfering, but that won’t stop them, at least not yet.
It is high time that the victims wake up to these scams and begin opposing them.



We need to ask who the Idiot is Inviting these Illegals here? ...........Its not the Land Owners.

After a Honduran immigrant was found dead on a South Texas ranch, Channel 5 News in Rio Grande, Texas ran a special report called “Paying the Price.”
Eddie Canales, a human rights activist, claims the woman is just one of hundreds who die in the brush of South Texas and on the land of many ranch owners.
Many illegals go missing and gaining access from landowners to do searches on their private property is a hassle.
The South Texas landowners are now speaking out about taking the blame of the number of people dying. In Brooks County alone, 41 bodies have been found.
“We just think the landowner shouldn’t take the blame on this,” Susan Kibbe, said.
Kibbe represents the majority of the landowners in Brooks County and is the director of the South Texas Property Rights Association.
“Somehow the U.S. is blamed for their deaths, or ranchers are blamed for their deaths, or others are blamed for their deaths,” she continued.
“When they know when they come into the country illegally, they’re taking this chance.”
The South Texas Property Rights Association says Congress needs to secure the border.

Czech Television Shows PROOF That Jihadists Among Syrian Refugees (VIDEO)

Here is a video liberals DON’T want you see.
While the liberal media is busy trying to convince America that refugees are sweet, innocent kids  by flashing pictures taken by UN agencies, the Czech media has done their homework and found out that hiding among the Syrian refugees are jihadists.
To prove their point, the Czech media flashed their own photos of jihadist at home alongside their new “refugee” selves in Europe.

Dear Spoiled-Brat Millennials – This Could Be Why You’re Not Getting Hired

Dear Spoiled-Brat Millennials – This Could Be Why You’re Not Getting Hired

Nothing like sad experience in the real world to teach us all just how detrimental this whole grievance generation thing is going to affect their ability to get hired (on the other hand – more jobs for the rest of us).
Big-time video game developer Mark Kern tweeted about some experiences he had with working with some employees from the Millennial generation and not all of it has been positive (some background –  Mark Kern has been involved in the creation of such famous titles as World of Warcraft, Firefall, Diablo 2, and Starcraft. He’s definitely been in the position of wanting to hire people, particularly young people just getting out of college) –

The good news is that he’s talking specifically about new hires whose experience is limited to gender studies and camping out on the quad and taking over the university president’s office because someone (who may or may not actually attend the school) looked at them funny. Usually, software engineers are too busy with actually writing code and all that other technical stuff that they paid big money to do to get all whiny and butthurt over someone hurting their FEEEEEEEEELINGS (somehow, I managed to get out of the English department unscathed).
His series of tweets started over a discussion of this article in the New York Post talking about how we came to the point where there are so many easily-offended twenty-somethings running around demanding that their feelings never, ever, ever, ever, ever be hurt, and obviously just by looking at Mark Kern’s Twitter stream (PS – If you go looking at Mark’s Twitter stream, be warned that he does post images of scantily-clad anime characters. But that’s just to tick off the Cult of Social Justice and their prudish crusade against “aggressive navel.” Long story. Ask me about it later.), it sparked some discussion –
Now we’re witnessing whiney college kids marching in the streets screaming obscenities or taking over the university president’s office for what?

Feeling slighted? Having their feelings hurt?

Talk about rebels without a cause.

I’ve traveled to many campuses in recent weeks and experienced the ‎melodrama of student grievances firsthand. To be fair, I should note that many of the students are impressive, with open and inquiring minds. It’s only a loud-mouthed minority whose mission is to shut out and shut down views they find a way to be offended by.

These leftist kids are agitated. Angry. This the hangover effect, I suspect, from the shattered utopian dreams of Hope and Change. I’ve noticed that these students attend my lectures not to learn anything — they know everything already — but hoping that I’ll slip up or say something they can label as offensive or that violates their eight-volume campus speech code.
That’s the biggest takeaway from all these protests on college campuses – these kids will not and cannot function in the real world. That is why we have movements like #BlackLivesMatter and #ConcernedStudent1950 and all the other hashtag movements taking up space on social media. These kids can’t conceive of a world where their every whim and demand is not met, so rather than grow up and realize that’s how the world is, they just quit and run to the nearest news camera to cry that someone has to fix this problem. Probably the mayor or the governor or the president. But then, you can’t legislate human behavior, and THAT’S the rudest awakening ever.
Didn’t even come with a trigger warning.


Dictator Obama Says We Are Not Allowed To Pray For Colorado Victims Until We Pass More Gun Control Laws

A mentally unhinged asshole killed 3 people in Colorado Springs yesterday using a firearm he was legally entitled to own. While it’s not shocking that Obama has once again used an unpreventable tragedy to call for more gun control, his newest liberal wrinkle is that we are not allowed to even pray for the victims until we pass laws that severely restrict legal gun ownership.
The President issued his statement and it is pure Obama bullshit through and through:
The last thing Americans should have to do, over the holidays or any day, is comfort the families of people killed by gun violence — people who woke up in the morning and bid their loved ones goodbye with no idea it would be for the last time.
And yet, two days after Thanksgiving, that’s what we are forced to do again.
Wasn’t it Obama’s press secretary Josh Earnest who told us we should all be talking about gun control and gun violence over the Thanksgiving weekend? Yes it was, I actually wrote about this ridiculous liberal attempt to politicize the holiday. So if it’s the last thing families should be talking about, why did the White House try to get us talking about it?
We don’t yet know what this particular gunman’s so-called motive was for shooting twelve people, or for terrorizing an entire community, when he opened fire with an assault weapon and took hostages at a Planned Parenthood center in Colorado.
There’s actually quite a lot we don’t know about the shooting yet, but that never stopped a liberal from exploiting a tragedy to push a political agenda. Here’s Obama doing just that:
This is not normal. We can’t let it become normal. If we truly care about this — if we’re going to offer up our thoughts and prayers again, for God knows how many times, with a truly clean conscience — then we have to do something about the easy accessibility of weapons of war on our streets to people who have no business wielding them. Period. Enough is enough.
Did you get that? Obama say we cannot pray for the victims of this shooting until we pass his version of “common sense” gun control. What does that mean exactly? Well, as it stands now, it looks like the gunman was not a convicted felon and used a common semi-automatic rifle. If Obama wants gun control that would have stopped this shooting, the liberal expanded background check system wouldn’t have achieved that. The only logical thing Obama could be talking about here is a weapons ban or a law that stops otherwise law-abiding people from owning guns.
In his sly Obama-esque way, the President just told us we are not allowed to morn the deaths of these victims until we are prepared to ban an entire class of common-use weapons and/or severely restrict our gun ownership rights.
It’s bad enough that the President of the United States would use the tragic deaths of Americans to push his unconstitutional agenda, but even worse that he’s become so power mad that he is dictating the way we are allowed to feel and express sympathy. Once again liberals have proven how they are the shittiest people on the planet.

These Goofy Bastards on the left are good at using props

This shows how the left pushes their narrative.
