In what officials caution is now a dangerous and even deadly crime wave, Phoenix, Arizona has become the kidnapping capital of America, with more incidents than any other city in the world outside of Mexico City and over 370 cases last year alone. In fact, kidnappings and other crimes connected to the Mexican drug cartels are quickly spreading across the border, from Texas to California. The majority of the victims are either illegal aliens or connected to the drug trade. ED STRAKER
Before resigning to run for Congress, the mayor of America’s
fifth-largest city gave a political open-borders ally millions of taxpayer
dollars to complete a job in an area it suspiciously has zero experience in.
Under the shady deal, the radical La Raza group Promise Arizona (PAZ)
will receive $2.4 million from the city of Phoenix to conduct “Business
Assistance” during construction of a light rail extension. Some Phoenix City
Hall insiders believe it’s a payoff by the outgoing mayor, Greg Stanton, to
support his upcoming congressional run. Stanton, who will resign on May 29, and PAZ Director Petra Falcon are close
political allies fiercely opposed to immigration enforcement and border
security. “PAZ has zero experience in business anything,” said a veteran
Phoenix official. Another Phoenix government staffer called it a prime example
of race-based political payback. “PAZ is no more qualified to provide economic
development input than a fox is fit to provide chicken and egg care for a
henhouse.” Judicial Watch reached out to Stanton’s office for comment, but
messages went unanswered.
mission and accomplishments indicate that it is not qualified for the Phoenix
job. The $2.4 million are supposed to go to an organization or firm that
assists businesses along the new rail line with building and marketing
strategies. “The grant will fund comprehensive, proactive business assistance
that will include business owner workshops, detailed inventories and needs
assessments of the businesses in the corridor, and development and
implementation of individual business assistance plans,” according to documents obtained by Judicial Watch. “In addition,
the grant provides the resources to engage and work with the community to
gather extensive input and understand perspectives on the current and desired
conditions of the station areas to generate a long-term vision for the
corridor. The visioning work will be captured through interactive design
workshops that will yield conceptual urban design plans for the areas
surrounding each station. The community engagement, visioning, urban design
work, and an action plan will be documented in a TOD policy plan specific to
the South Central corridor, which will serve to attract, guide, and prioritize
strategic investments in infrastructure, housing, economic development, and
other areas to achieve the shared vision for the future.”
specialty is “building immigrant and Latino political power” that it claims
brings hope, dignity and progress. In fact, the “who are we?” question on is
website is answered like this: “Promise Arizona has been at the forefront of
the fight for immigrant rights for 5 years.” The organization strives to
promote and harness the power of the Latino community in Arizona, according to
its website. “Promise Arizona aims to unite the millions of Arizonans who
reject the divisive politics of immigrant-baiting, millions who believe in
treating their neighbors with fairness and dignity,” the group proclaims. Among
its goals is “training businesses and individuals about the values of open
borders, sanctuary cities and divisive race-based politics.” PAZ recently sued
the federal government to keep an Obama amnesty program known as Deferred
Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA). Its website openly recruits young Latino
and immigrant leaders who are ready for action, grounded in a history of social
movements. When Arizona’s Supreme Court ruled recently that DACA illegal aliens
could no longer receive discounted in-state tuition at public universities and
colleges, Falcon said “this ongoing assault on immigrants is
destroying our communities, especially our vulnerable immigrant families, and
it has to stop.”
other sensible explanation for PAZ receiving the “Business Assistance” grant
other than its director’s close political ties to Stanton, who steered the
public funds her way. There is a stark difference between PAZ and the other
company, Callison RTKL,
that submitted a bid for the grant money to help businesses through the rail
construction. Callison’s expertise includes architecture, brand building,
change management, workplace strategy and environmental graphic design. The
reputable firm’s projects include revitalizing a neglected area in Shanghai,
overcoming challenges in a Washington D.C. office building, the transformation
of a northern California medical center and a multitude of national and
international projects. There is no comparison between Callison and PAZ.
Nevertheless, led by Mayor Stanton the Phoenix City Council passed a measure
last week to give PAZ $2.4 million to perform a job it clearly isn’t qualified
Judicial Watch exposed another outrageous allocation of taxpayer
dollars by the city of Phoenix. In that case public funds helped pay for a
controversial billboard depicting President Donald Trump as a Nazi. The massive
billboard caused a ruckus when it was unveiled in downtown Phoenix Arizona last
year because it features a menacing portrait of Trump surrounded by mushroom
clouds—in the shape of laughing clowns—and swastikas modified as dollar signs.
A pin of a Russian flag appears on the president’s lapel. Judicial Watch
uncovered records that
show the billboard was commissioned by an “arts advocate” who gets thousands of
dollars in grants from the city, in part to organize an annual art event where
the offensive billboard made its debut. The publicly funded annual art
celebration is touted as having “a diverse slate of activities created by local
artists and art venues to celebrate the growing, vibrant Phoenix arts scene”
and is described as “…one of the most important events in Phoenix’s calendar”
by Mayor Stanton.

U.S. TAX DOLLAR SUPPORTED MEXICAN FASCIST PARTY of LA RAZA “The Race” IS NOW
CALLING ITSELF UNIDOSus.
La Raza Founder - Kill the Gringos (José Angel
FIFTEEN THINGS YOU SHOULD KNOW ABOUT LA RAZA
by Michelle Malkin
Only in America could critics of a group called
"The Race" be labeled racists. Such is the triumph of left-wing
identity chauvinists, whose aggressive activists and supine abettors have
succeeded in redefining all opposition as "hate."
Both Barack Obama and John McCain will speak this
week in San Diego at the annual conference of the National Council of La Raza,
the Latino organization whose name is Spanish for, yes, "The Race."
Can you imagine Obama and McCain paying homage to a group of white people who
called themselves that? No matter. The presidential candidates and the media
have legitimized "The Race" as a mainstream ethnic lobbying group and
marginalized its critics as intolerant bigots. The unvarnished truth is that
the group is a radical ethnic nationalist outfit that abuses your tax dollars
and milks PC politics to undermine our sovereignty.
are 15 things you should know about "The Race":
15. "The Race" supports driver's licenses
for illegal aliens.
14."The Race" demands in-state tuition
discounts for illegal alien students that are not available to law-abiding U.S.
citizens and law-abiding legal immigrants.
13. "The Race" vehemently opposes
cooperative immigration enforcement efforts between local, state and federal
12. "The Race" opposes a secure fence on
the southern border.
11. "The Race" joined the American-Arab
Anti-Discrimination Committee in a failed lawsuit attempt to prevent the feds
from entering immigration information into a key national crime database -- and
to prevent local police officers from accessing the data.
10. "The Race" opposed the state of
Oklahoma's tough immigration-enforcement-first laws, which cut off welfare to
illegal aliens, put teeth in employer sanctions and strengthened local-federal
cooperation and information sharing.
9. "The Race" joined other open-borders,
anti-assimilationists and sued to prevent Proposition 227, California's
bilingual education reform ballot initiative, from becoming law.
8. "The Race" bitterly protested
common-sense voter ID provisions as an "absolute disgrace."
7. "The Race" has consistently opposed
post-9/11 national security measures at every turn.
6. Former "Race" president Raul
Yzaguirre, Hillary Clinton's Hispanic outreach adviser, said this: "U.S.
English is to Hispanics as the Ku Klux Klan is to blacks." He was
referring to U.S. English, the nation's oldest, largest citizens' action group
dedicated to preserving the unifying role of the English language in the United
States. "The Race" also pioneered Orwellian open-borders Newspeak and
advised the Mexican government on how to lobby for illegal alien amnesty while
avoiding the terms "illegal" and "amnesty."
5. "The Race" gives mainstream cover to a
poisonous subset of ideological satellites, led by Movimiento Estudiantil
Chicano de Aztlan, or Chicano Student Movement of Aztlan (MEChA). The late GOP
Rep. Charlie Norwood rightly characterized the organization as "a radical
racist group … one of the most anti-American groups in the country, which has
permeated U.S. campuses since the 1960s, and continues its push to carve a
racist nation out of the American West."
4. "The Race" is currently leading a
smear campaign against staunch immigration enforcement leaders and has called
for TV and cable news networks to keep immigration enforcement proponents off
the airwaves -- in addition to pushing for Fairness Doctrine policies to shut
up their foes. The New York Times reported that current "Race"
president Janet Murguia believes "hate speech" should "not be
tolerated, even if such censorship were a violation of First Amendment
3. "The Race" sponsors militant ethnic
nationalist charter schools subsidized by your public tax dollars (at least $8
million in federal education grants). The schools include Aztlan Academy in
Tucson, Ariz., the Mexicayotl Academy in Nogales, Ariz., Academia Cesar Chavez
Charter School in St. Paul, Minn., and La Academia Semillas del Pueblo in Los
Angeles, whose principal inveighed: "We don't want to drink from a White
water fountain, we have our own wells and our natural reservoirs and our way of
collecting rain in our aqueducts. We don't need a White water fountain …
ultimately the White way, the American way, the neo liberal, capitalist way of
life will eventually lead to our own destruction."
2. "The Race" has perfected the art of
the PC shakedown at taxpayer expense, pushing relentlessly to lower home loan
standards for Hispanic borrowers, reaping millions in federal "mortgage
counseling" grants, seeking special multimillion-dollar earmarks and
partnering with banks that do business with illegal aliens.
1. "The Race" thrives on ethnic supremacy
-- and the elite sheeple's unwillingness to call it what it is. As historian
Victor Davis Hanson observes: "[The] organization's very nomenclature 'The
National Council of La Raza' is hate speech to the core. Despite all the
contortions of the group, Raza (as its Latin cognate suggests) reflects the
meaning of 'race' in Spanish, not 'the people' -- and that's precisely why we
don't hear of something like 'The National Council of the People,' which would
not confer the buzz notion of ethnic, racial and tribal chauvinism."
fringe is the center. The center is the fringe. Viva La Raza.
NATION: Secrets of the Invasion
2006 – ALIEN NATION: Secrets of the Invasion – Why America's government invites
rampant illegal immigration
widely regarded as America's biggest problem: Between 12 and 20 million aliens
(MOST SOURCES SUGGEST THERE ARE MUCH MORE LIKELY NEARLY 40 MILLION ILLEGALS
HERE NOW) – including large numbers of criminals, gang members and even
terrorists – have entered this nation illegally, with countless more streaming
across our scandalously unguarded borders daily.
issue polarizes the nation, robs citizens of jobs, bleeds taxpayers, threatens
America's national security and dangerously balkanizes the country into unassimilated
ethnic groups with little loyalty or love for America's founding values.
Indeed, the de facto invasion is rapidly transforming America into a totally
different country than the one past generations have known and loved.
yet – most Americans have almost no idea what is really going on, or why it is
news reports depict demonstrations and debates, and while politicians promise
"comprehensive border security programs," no real answers ever seem
there are answers. Truthful answers. Shocking answers.
its groundbreaking May edition, WND's acclaimed monthly Whistleblower magazine
reveals the astounding hidden agendas, plans and people behind America's
"ALIEN NATION," the issue is subtitled "SECRETS OF THE INVASION:
Why government invites rampant illegal immigration." Indeed, it reveals
pivotal secrets very few Americans know. For example:
you know that the powerfully influential Council on Foreign Relations – often
described as a “shadow government" – issued a comprehensive report last
year laying out a five-year plan for the "establishment by 2010 of a North
American economic and security community" with a common "outer
translated: In the next few years, according to the 59-page report titled
"Building a North American Community," the U.S. must be integrated
with the socialism, corruption, poverty and population of Mexico and Canada.
"Common perimeter" means wide-open U.S. borders between the U.S.,
Mexico and Canada. As Phyllis Schlafly reveals in this issue of Whistleblower:
"This CFR document asserts that President Bush, Mexican President Vicente
Fox and Canadian Prime Minister Paul Martin 'committed their governments' to
this goal when they met at Bush's ranch and at Waco, Texas, on March 23, 2005.
The three adopted the 'Security and Prosperity Partnership of North America'
and assigned 'working groups' to fill in the details. It was at this same
meeting, grandly called the North American Summit, that President Bush pinned
the epithet 'vigilantes' on the volunteers guarding our border in
CFR report – important excerpts of which are published in Whistleblower – also
suggests North American elitists begin getting together regularly, and presumably
secretly, "to buttress North American relationships, along the lines of
the Bilderberg or Wehrkunde conferences, organized to support transatlantic
relations." The Bilderberg and Wehrkunde conferences are highly secret
conclaves of the powerful. For decades, there have been suspicions that such
meetings were used for plotting the course of world events and especially the
centralization of global decision-making.
you know that radical immigrant groups – including the League of United Latin
American Citizens (LULAC), the Mexican American Legal Defense and Educational
Fund (MALDEF), the Movimiento Estudiantil Chicano de Aztlan (MEChA) and the
National Council of La Raza (La Raza) – not only share a revolutionary agenda
of conquering America's southwest, but they also share common funding sources,
notably the Ford and Rockefeller foundations?
is going to be a Hispanic state," said Mario Obeldo, former head of
MALDEF. "Anyone who does not like it should leave." And MEChA's goal
is even more radical: an independent ''Aztlan,'' the collective name this
organization gives to the seven states of the U.S. Southwest – Arizona,
California, Colorado, Nevada, New Mexico, Texas and Utah. So why would the
Rockefeller and Ford foundations support such groups? Joseph Farah tells the
story in this issue of Whistleblower.
have America's politicians – of both major parties – allowed the illegal alien
invasion of this nation to continue for the last 30 years unabated? With
al-Qaida and allied terrorists promising to annihilate major U.S. cities with
nuclear weapons, with some big-city hospital emergency rooms near closure due
to the crush of so many illegals, with the rapid spread throughout the U.S. of
MS-13, the super-violent illegal alien gang – with all this and more, why do
U.S. officials choose to ignore the laws of the land and the will of the people
to pursue, instead, policies of open borders and lax immigration enforcement?
answers to all this and much more are in Whistleblower's "ALIEN NATION"
there hope? Or is America lost to a demographic invasion destined to annihilate
its traditional Judeo-Christian culture, and to the ever-growing likelihood
that nuclear-armed jihadists will cross our porous borders and wreak
unthinkable destruction here?
most definitely is hope, according to this issue of Whistleblower. Although
most politicians of both major political parties have long since abdicated
their responsibility for securing America's borders and dealing effectively
with the millions already here illegally, there are a few exceptions – most
notably Colorado Rep. Tom Tancredo.
Whistleblower includes an exclusive sneak preview of Tancredo's forthcoming
blockbuster book, "In Mortal Danger: The Battle for America’s Border and
Security." In an extended excerpt, Whistleblower presents Tencredo's
expert and inspired analysis of exactly how to solve the nation's most vexing
AZTLAN INVASION & THE LA RAZA FASCIST PARTY FOR MEXICAN SUPREMACY
radicals seek nothing less than secession from the United States whether to
form their own sovereign state or to reunify with Mexico. Those who desire
reunification with Mexico are irredentists who seek to reclaim Mexico's
"lost" territories in the American Southwest.”
IMMIGRATION AND AZTLAN
Maria Hsia Chang Professor of Political Science, University of Nevada Reno
of the standard arguments invoked by those in favor of massive immigration into
the United States is that our country is founded on immigrants who have always
been successfully assimilated into America's mainstream culture and society. As
one commentator put it, "Assimilation evokes the misty past of Ellis
Island, through which millions entered, eventually seeing their descendants
become as American as George Washington."1 Nothing more vividly testifies
against that romantic faith in America's ability to continuously assimilate new
members than the events of October 16, 1994 in Los Angeles. On that day, 70,000
people marched beneath "a sea of Mexican flags" protesting
Proposition 187, a referendum measure that would deny many state benefits to
illegal immigrants and their children. Two weeks later, more protestors marched
down the street, this time carrying an American flag upside down. Both protests
point to a disturbing and rising phenomenon of Chicano separatism in the United
States — the product of a complex of forces, among which are multiculturalism
and a generous immigration policy combined with a lax border control. The
Problem Chicanos refer to "people of Mexican descent in the United
States" or "Mexican Americans in general." Today, there are
reasons to believe that Chicanos as a group are unlike previous immigrants in
that they are more likely to remain unassimilated and unintegrated, whether by
choice or circumstance — resulting in the formation of a separate quasi-nation
within the United States. More than that, there are Chicano political activists
who intend to marry cultural separateness with territorial and political self-determination.
The more moderate among them aspire to the cultural and political autonomy of
"home rule". The radicals seek nothing less than secession from the
United States whether to form their own sovereign state or to reunify with
Mexico. Those who desire reunification with Mexico are irredentists who seek to
reclaim Mexico's "lost" territories in the American Southwest.
their goals, what animates all of them is the dream of Aztlan. According to
legend, Aztlan was the ancestral homeland of the Aztecs which they left in
journeying southward to found Tenochtitlan, the center of their new
civilization, which is today's Mexico City. Today, the "Nation of
Aztlan" refers to the American southwestern states of California, Arizona,
Texas, New Mexico, portions of Nevada, Utah, Colorado, which Chicano
nationalists claim were stolen by the United States and must be reconquered
(Reconquista) and reclaimed for Mexico. The myth of Aztlan was revived by
Chicano political activists in the 1960s as a central symbol of Chicano
nationalist ideology. In 1969, at the Chicano National Liberation Youth
Conference in Denver, Rodolfo "Corky" Gonzales put forth a political
document entitled El Plan de Aztlan (Spiritual Plan of Aztlan). The Plan is a
clarion call to Mexican-Americans to form a separate Chicano nation: In the
spirit of a new people that is conscious not only of its proud historial
heritage, but also of the brutal "gringo" invasion of our
territories, we, the Chicano inhabitants and civilizers of the nothern land of
Aztlan from whence came our forefathers ...declare that the call of our blood
is...our inevitable destiny.... Aztlan belongs to those who plant the seeds,
water the fields, and gather the crops, and not to the foreign Europeans. We do
not recognize capricious frontiers on the bronze continent.... Brotherhood
unites us, and love for our brothers makes us a people whose time has come ....
With our heart in our hands and our hands in the soil, we declare the
independence of our mestizo nation. We are a bronze people with a bronze
culture. Before the world, before all of North America, before all our brothers
in the bronze continent, we are a nation, we are a union of free pueblos, we
Chicanos are Unlike Previous Immigrants Brent A. Nelson, writing in 1994,
observed that in the 1980s America's Southwest had begun to be transformed into
"a de facto nation" with its own culture, history, myth, geography,
religion, education, and language. Whatever evidence there is indicates that
Chicanos, as a group, are unlike previous waves of immigrants into the United
States. In the first place, many Chicanos do not consider themselves immigrants
at all because their people "have been here for 450 years" before the
English, French, or Dutch. Before California and the Southwest were seized by
the United States, they were the lands of Spain and Mexico. As late as 1780 the
Spanish crown laid claim to territories from Florida to California, and on the
far side of the Mississippi up to the Great Lakes and the Rockies. Mexico held
title to much of Spanish possessions in the United States until the Treaty of
Guadalupe Hidalgo ended the Mexican-American war in 1848. As a consequence,
Mexicans "never accepted the borders drawn up by the 1848 treaty."
history has created among Chicanos a feeling of resentment for being "a
conquered people," made part of the United States against their will and
by the force of arms. Their resentment is amply expressed by Voz Fronteriza, a
Chicano student publication,
referred to Border Patrol officers killed in the line of duty as "pigs
(migra)" trying to defend "the false frontier."
are also distinct from other immigrant groups because of the geographic
proximity of their native country. Their physical proximity to Mexico gives
Chicanos "the option of life in both Americas, in two places and in two
cultures, something earlier immigrants never had." Geographic proximity
and ease of transportation are augmented by the media. Radio and television
keep the spoken language alive and current so that Spanish, unlike the native
languages of previous immigrants into the United States, "shows no sign of
result of all that is the failure by Chicanos to be fully assimilated into the
larger American society and culture. As Earl Shorris, author of Latinos: A
Biography of the People, observed: "Latinos have been more resistant to
the melting pot than any other group. Their entry en masse into the United
States will test the limits of the American experiment...." The continuous
influx of Mexican immigrants into the United States serve to continuously renew
Chicano culture so that their sense of separateness will probably continue
"far into the future...." There are other reasons for the failure of
Chicano assimilation. Historically, a powerful force for assimilation was
upward social mobility: Immigrants into the United States became assimilated as
they rose in educational achievement and income. But today's post-industrial
American economy, with its narrower paths to upward mobility, is making it more
difficult for certain groups to improve their socioeconomic circumstances.
Unionized factory jobs, which once provided a step up for the second generation
of past waves of immigrants, have been disappearing for decades. Instead of the
diamond-shaped economy of industrial America, the modern American economy is
shaped like an hourglass. There is a good number of jobs for unskilled people
at the bottom, a fair number of jobs for the highly educated at the top, but
comparatively few jobs for those in the middle without a college education or
special skills. To illustrate, a RAND Corporation study forecasts that 85
percent of California's new jobs will require post-secondary education. For a
variety of reasons, the nationwide high-school dropout rate for Hispanics (the
majority of whom are Chicano) is 30 percent — three times the rate for whites
and twice the rate for blacks. Paradoxically, the dropout rate for Hispanics
born in the United States is even higher than for young immigrants. Among
Chicanos, high-school dropout rates actually rise between the second and third
generations. Their low educational achievement accounts for why Chicanos as a
group are poor despite being hardworking. In 1996, for the first time, Hispanic
poverty rate began to exceed that of American blacks. In 1995, household income
rose for every ethnic group except Hispanics, for whom it dropped 5 percent.
Latinos now make up a quarter of the nation's poor people, and are more than
three times as likely to be impoverished than whites. This decline in income
has taken place despite high rates of labor-force participation by Latino men,
and despite an emerging Latino middle class. In California, where Latinos now
approach one-third of the population, their education levels are far lower than
those of other immigrants, and they earn about half of what native-born
Californians earn. This means that, for the first time in the history of
American immigration, hard work is not leading to economic advancement because
immigrants in service jobs face unrelenting labor-market pressure from more
recently arrived immigrants who are eager to work for less. The narrowing of
the pathways of upward mobility has implications for the children of recent
Mexican immigrants. Their ascent into the middle-class mainstream will likely
be blocked and they will join children of earlier black and Puerto Rican
migrants as part of an expanded multiethnic underclass. Whereas first
generation immigrants compare their circumstances to the Mexico that they left
— and thereby feel immeasurably better off — their children and grandchildren
will compare themelves to other U.S. groups. Given their lower educational
achievement and income, that comparison will only lead to feelings of relative
deprivation and resentment. They are unlikely to be content as maids,
gardeners, or fruit pickers. Many young Latinos in the second and third
generations see themselves as locked in irremediable conflict with white
society, and are quick to deride successful Chicano students as
"wannabes." For them, to study hard is to "act white" and
exhibit group disloyalty. That attitude is part of the Chicano culture of
resistance — a culture that actively resists assimilation into mainstream
America. That culture is created, reinforced, and maintained by radical Chicano
intellectuals, politicians, and the many Chicano Studies programs in U.S.
colleges and universities. As examples, according to its editor, Elizabeth
Martinez, the purpose of Five Hundred Years of Chicano History, a book used in
over 300 schools throughout the West, is to "celebrate our resistance to
being colonized and absorbed by racist empire builders." The book calls
the INS and the Border Patrol "the Gestapo for Mexicans."
Rodolfo Acuna, author of Occupied America: The Chicano's Struggle Toward
Liberation, probably the most widely assigned text in U.S. Chicano Studies
programs, the Anglo-American invasion of Mexico was "as vicious as that of
Hitler's invasion of Poland and other Central European nations...." The
book also includes a map showing "the Mexican republic" in 1822
reaching up into Kansas and Oklahoma, and including within it Utah, Nevada, and
everything west and south of there
is country belongs to Mexico" is said by the Mexican Militant. This is a
common teaching that the U.S. is really AZTLAN, belonging to Mexicans, which is
taught to Mexican kids in Arizona and California through a LA Raza educational
program funded by American Tax Payers via President Obama, when he gave LA RAZA
$800,000.00 in March of 2009!
Facebook has allowed the Islamic State (ISIS/ISIL) to establish a growing virtual presence in North America, used to radicalize, recruit, support, as well as potentially plan and direct terrorist attacks, an analysis by the Counter Extremism Project (CEP) found.
Our analysis of online IS communities globally, regionally, and nationally suggests that IS’s online networks, in particular on Facebook, are growing and can be utilized to plan and direct terror attacks as well as mobilize foreign fighters for multiple areas of insurgency.
Secondly, IS’s presence on Facebook is pervasive and professionalized, contrary to the tech company’s rhetoric and efforts to convince the public, policymakers, and corporate advertisers from believing otherwise. Our findings illustrate that IS has developed a structured and deliberate strategy of using Facebook to radicalize, recruit, support, and terrorize individuals around the world.
CEP found that ISIS has also established a Facebook community in Latin America with links to “core” supporters of the jihadist group in the Middle East, North Africa, as well as the Afghanistan and Philippines region.
David Ibsen, the director of CEP, told Breitbart News, “Given the proximity of Latin America to the United States, the threat from ISIS followers in these countries should not be underestimated.”
CEP reported that it expects “veteran IS fighters will be able to continue to expand the online community into both the United States and Latin America.”
Although the U.S.-led coalition and its local allies have taken back nearly all of ISIS’s territory in Iraq and Syria, Ibsen noted that the group’s “virtual caliphate” remains alive and well.
While the caliphate as an entity has almost disappeared, ISIS leaders several years ago began preparing their followers for this eventuality, urging them, for example, to carry out attacks in their home countries, rather than traveling to Syria or Iraq.
ISIS’s online presence has not experienced a shrinkage commensurate with the group’s physical holdings. This report, which documents ISIS supporters on Facebook in 96 unique countries, is further evidence of the group’s enduring presence.
CEP found that the social media giant had provided a platform for U.S.-based Islamic State (IS) supporters to organize and even hold weekly meetings on its Facebook Live component to “discuss how to avoid detection from the FBI and ways they can help the ‘virtual caliphate,’” noting:
The data presented above reveals a sobering degree of IS penetration within North America. Nearly every regional IS network in the world has multiple direct connections to American IS supporters online. These networks can and will be used both to draw American IS supporters into foreign conflicts as well as to encourage IS attacks within the United States. The main American IS network uncovered in this research consisted of multiple users actively engaged in spreading propaganda, radicalizing, and recruiting for IS.
Given that the report only provides “snapshots of IS [Facebook] connections between October 2017 and March 2018,” it is uncertain whether or not the ISIS supporters are still conducting weekly meetings on Facebook Live, Ibsen told Breitbart News, adding:
Even though Facebook had taken action against 43 percent of the nodes by March 5, 2018, the decentralized nature and resilience of ISIS followers on Facebook make it likely that their communications have continued.
All Internet and social media companies, not just Facebook, need to do a much better job of acknowledging the extent to which extremist groups have misused their platforms.
CEP mapped the accounts and connections between 1,000 ISIS-supporting profiles (or nodes) with affiliations to 96 countries on every continent with the exception of Antarctica.
The analysis excluded hundreds of profiles without information on users’ location, noting, “This data represents only a portion of [ISIS’s] support network on the platform.”
CEP’s report came after Facebook announced it was using artificial intelligence to remove 99 percent of terror-linked messages before anyone even reports it.
ISIS maintains a growing Facebook presence across the Western Hemisphere, including in Latin America, the NGO found.
IS targets many Latin American Facebook accounts for hacking and turns them into propaganda accounts… [indicating] that IS is making a concerted effort to tap into Latin America’s Arab and Muslim population, long a haven for other terror groups like Hezbollah and al-Qaeda.
Propaganda accounts serve the dual purpose of keeping IS supporters informed online and potentially radicalizing or recruiting the friends of the hacked account who now have and IS news feed on their Facebook wall.
IS will look to expand operations in this region, taking advantage of existing internal conflicts in countries like Venezuela, Nicaragua, and Colombia to carry out attacks against western officials.
Since the ISIS presence erupted across the world in 2014, the U.S. military has cautionedthat the jihadist group could exploit the knowledge of criminal Latin American human and drug traffickers to infiltrate the United States.
Adios, Sanctuary La Raza Welfare State of California A fifth-generation Californian
laments his state’s ongoing economic collapse. By Steve Baldwin American Spectator, October 19, 2017 What’s clear is that the producers are leaving
the state and the takers are coming in. Many of the takers are illegal aliens,
now estimated to number over 2.6 million. The
Federation for American Immigration Reform estimates that California spends $22
billion on government services for illegal aliens, including welfare,
education, Medicaid, and criminal justice system costs.

claim they more than make that up with taxes paid, but that’s simply not true.
It’s not even close. FAIR estimates illegal aliens in California contribute
only $1.21 billion in tax revenue, which means they cost California $20.6
billion, or at least $1,800 per household.
Nonetheless, open border advocates, such as Facebook Chairman Mark Zuckerberg,
claim illegal aliens are a net benefit to California with little evidence to
support such an assertion. As the Center for Immigration Studies has
documented, the vast majority of illegals are poor, uneducated, and with few
skills. How does accepting millions of illegal aliens and then granting them
access to dozens of welfare programs benefit California’s economy? If illegal
aliens were contributing to the economy in any meaningful way, California, with
its 2.6 million illegal aliens, would be booming. Furthermore, the complexion of illegal aliens
has changed with far more on welfare and committing crimes than those who
entered the country in the 1980s. Heather Mac Donald of
the Manhattan Institute has testified before a Congressional committee that in
2004, 95% of all outstanding warrants for murder in Los Angeles were for
illegal aliens; in 2000, 23% of all Los Angeles County jail inmates were
illegal aliens and that in 1995, 60% of Los Angeles’s largest street gang, the
18th Street gang, were illegal aliens. Granted, those
statistics are old, but if you talk to any California law enforcement officer,
they will tell you it’s much worse today. The problem is that the Brown
administration will not release any statewide data on illegal alien crimes.
That would be insensitive. And now that California has declared itself a
“sanctuary state,” there is little doubt this sends a message south of the
border that will further escalate illegal immigration into the state.
"If the racist "Sensenbrenner
Legislation" passes the US Senate, there is no doubt that a massive civil
disobedience movement will emerge. Eventually labor union power can merge with
the immigrant civil rights and "Immigrant
Sanctuary" movements to enable us to either form a new political
party or to do heavy duty reforming of the existing Democratic Party. The next
and final steps would follow and that is to elect our own governors of all the
states within Aztlan." Indeed, California goes out of its way to
attract illegal aliens. The state has even created government programs that
cater exclusively to illegal aliens. For example, the State Department of Motor
Vehicles has offices that only process driver licenses for illegal aliens. With
over a million illegal aliens now driving in California, the state felt
compelled to help them avoid the long lines the rest of us must endure at the
DMV. And just recently, the state-funded University
of California system announced it will spend $27 million on financial aid for
illegal aliens. They’ve even taken out radio spots on stations
all along the border, just to make sure other potential illegal border crossers
hear about this program. I can’t afford college
education for all my four sons, but my taxes will pay for illegals to get a
California used to be
home to America's largest and most affluent middle class. Today, it
is America's poverty capital. What went wrong? In a
According to the U.S. Census
Bureau's Official Poverty Measure, California's poverty rate hovers
around 15 percent. But this figure is misleading: the Census Bureau
measures poverty relative to a uniform national standard, which doesn't account
for differences in living costs between states – the cost of taxes, housing,
and health care are higher in California than in Oklahoma, for example. Accounting
for these differences reveals that California's real poverty rate is
20.6 percent –
the highest in America, and nearly twice the national average of 12.7
Likewise, income inequality in California is
the second-highest in America, behind only New York. In fact, if California
were an independent country, it would be the 17th most unequal country on
Earth, nestled comfortably between Honduras and Guatemala. Mexico is
slightly more egalitarian. California is far more unequal than the
"social democracies" it emulates: Canada is the 111th most
unequal nation, while Norway is far down the list at number 153 (out of 176
countries). In terms of income inequality, California has more in
common with banana republics than other "social democracies."
Failed presidential candidate Hillary Clinton said she would like to be CEO of Facebook.
Speakingto an audience at Harvard University, alongside Massachusetts Attorney General Maura Healey, Clinton was asked what company, if any, she would like to be CEO of.
Clinton said she made Facebook her choice because the social media giant is the “biggest news platform in the world.”
“We can listen to really brilliant, experienced writers like David Ignatius and try to keep up with the news,” continued Clinton “But most people in our country get their news, true or not, from Facebook.”
Clinton went on to talk about Facebook’s efforts to limit the reach of anti-establishment news sources on Facebook. The company has presented this as a politically neutral crusade against “fake news,” but theresultsof the social network’s recent changes show that the mainstream media’s reach on the platform has soared while conservative and anti-establishment media has fallen.
“Facebook is trying to take on some of the unexpected consequences of their business model, and I for one hope they get it right because it really is critical to our democracy that people get accurate information on which to make decisions.”
what the Clintons do is criminal because they do it wholly at the expense of
the American people. And they feel thoroughly entitled to do it: gain power,
use it to enrich themselves and their friends. They are amoral, immoral, and
venal. Hillary has no core beliefs beyond power and money. That should be clear
to every person on the planet by now."----Patricia McCarthy -
