Terrorists At Our Border?

The FBI has troubles, but foreign terrorists coming here tops the list. On October 7, Hamas hit Israel. On October 15, FBI Director Chris Wray warned about a spike in anti-Semitism, and “increase in…threats.” On October 31, he raised the ante, Hamas-linked threats at a “higher level.” Privately, trusted sources tell me, lots of disturbing “chatter.” Here is what we know. 

As the FBI Director went on record arguing Hamas “will inspire the greatest US terror threat since ISIS,” law enforcement around the country is doubling down on security, surveillance, and contingency planning.

Already, protests have erupted in response to Hamas attacking Israel, Israel’s self-defense response in Gaza, remarks by officials at the UN, in the US, and in European countries, with specific concerns tied to protests going violent, groups taking law into their hands, and “lone wolf” sympathizers.

Here are hard facts, not to be overstated or ignored. First, whatever anyone else wants to argue, Hamas, Hezbollah, and Palestinian Islamic Jihad are terrorist organizations supported by Iran, all involved in the current mayhem in Israel and Gaza.

Second, while no terror by these groups has hit the US, a CBP memo reported in The Daily Caller distributing facts, not denied by CBP, although lacking “specific information.”

Says the CBP memo: “Individuals inspired by or reacting to the current Israel-Hamas conflict may attempt travel to or from the area of hostilities in the Middle East via circuitous transit across the Southwest border” and “foreign fighters motivated by ideology or mercenary soldiers of fortune may attempt to obfuscate travel to or from the U.S. to or from countries in the Middle East through Mexico.”

Asked to explain, CBP said – cryptically – it just “provides frontline personnel a wide range of context for situational awareness in order to ensure they remain vigilant in fulfillment of our homeland and border security missions,” adding “situational awareness briefs are not threat assessments.”

So, be prepared but not scared? An elevated threat without specifics? Look at corroborating evidence: Every major police department in the country, from New York and DC to Los Angeles, is suddenly on watch, looking inward, 4000 elevating vigilance for this exact type of threat.

On one hand, that is very reassuring; more eyes out for bad actors and sleeper cells means more likelihood they get detected, stopped, deterred, and stay docile. Over time, they may be identified, flushed or ferreted out, disrupted, dismantled, and eliminated.

But right now, something else is afoot. Credible sources warn several things are happening at the same time – which may spell trouble. The Southern border continues to be porous. Last month, CBP intercepted “more than 600” on the “terror watch list.” Who got through?

More, Iranian warships are appearing in Venezuelan ports, an oddity, except that anarchists and communists, terrorists and those who aim to sow chaos, fraternize – and are plainly doing so.

Add the relative ease by which actors arriving in Venezuela can travel up the Panamanian highway and into the US unless detected and reversed by Colombia, Panama, Costa Rica, Nicaragua, El Salvador, Honduras, Guatemala, or Mexico, few of which have capacity.

So, where does that leave us? Not clear, except other sources confirm threats on critical infrastructure, which could be just “shadow boxing,” fear generating fear, or real, are up.

Bottom line: Keep eyes open, as terror “over there” could become terror here. Second, trust and thank law enforcement, as they are on it. Finally, thank Mr. Biden, as terror like water goes to and through weak points, he has given us those. FBI does not always get it right, but this time, they have a bead on what matters most: foreign terrorist threats here – and we should too.

For the first time in my lifetime (80-years) this is the first time I can remember that our government has put every citizen of this great country in danger, we have always been in danger from people who have illegally entered America, but never to this extent, not one person is safe from attack, and that includes your home.
We have had over 7-million people enter illegally if just 1-percent are terrorist that’s 70,000 if they decide to split into 100-groups that’s 700per group that’s enough to hit 2 major cities in every state with riots and that will be more than most police departments can respond too.
We have a President that can’t see the damage that his policies are causing, we as Americans are in grave danger and we are over a year away from a new President and Congress, and your only way to survive such an attack will be if you are well armed and have enough food for a minimum of 3-months.
America is Danger!

The founding fathers had faith and respect for God. Now, we have degenerated to being “gods” ourselves. This playbook will not end well … I’d bet on this But Biden sellout of the American people has weakened us and the rest of the world laughs. Glad someone can laugh ????????????‍????
Fighting on my knees and praying for Jesus to

Terrorists are already here! They have been coming through the Biden Gap since he “took” office! They have already selected their targets, acquired their necessary supplies and communication, transportation is in place for egress! All they are waiting for is the “Go” signal from the Mullahs! Thanks Sleepy Creepy Joe?

Of course they are at our border. Why wouldn’t they be at our border? They are not stupid. Easy Peasy to get into America. Easy Peasy to go anywhere you want. Easy Peasy do anything you want. Best part is you get free money and stuff to make it easier.

Smell that? Smells like another power grab. Smells like yet another assault on the civil rights of all citizens and yep, smells like the hiring of ever more government jackboots.
Remember the Patriot Act? The maniacal response to 9/11? We are still enjoying that act and yes, though the good Mr. Snowden had to flee to Russia for daring to tell the truth of the monstrous attacks on the privacy of us all, the Feds still have their nose in roughly every thing we do. What we buy, who we communicate with, what we talk about, you name it and they know it. All in an effort to defeat terrorists we ended up still funding in a crazed an ongoing attack on Syria just to name one country. Yep, Osama Bin Ladens boys are now on OUR payroll. Sweet huh?
The true enemy is our own government. Ask President Trump.

I fear that terrorists have been entering the country for the past three years!! Joe nor any of his administration would know if that happened or not because they simply aren’t watching!!! The alphabet agencies aren’t watching either – they are all watching Trump!! The government that Democrats voted for is now putting all of us, including Democrat voters, in grave danger!!! And the sheeple are just going to let it happen!!

We already have to many people who work in our government offices, who claim to be Americans, when in reality are the off spring of foreign nationals, who support foregin interests. Palestine was given state status from Iseral in 2005 and, within months, elected Hamas as their governing body. This is insanity! These people, working in our government are not Americans, they are the SWAMP rats, that is sucking their lively hood from the Anerican tax payer, without allgiance to the United States or the American people. These American squatters are families living here, teaching their childern to hate America because of their blind hate, the 666 of humanity. They have on blood in the sand here and no love for Ameeica or the American people! Every person who is supporting hate and terrorism by backing groups like Hamas, Isis, and Hezbollah, which are backed by countries like Iran and Iraq hate. People who award a blind sided attack on unarmed people, the beheading of unarmed men, women and childern, allowing parents to watch their childers throats slit before being beheaded themselves and the raping of women and childern do not belong in America, let alone working in our government! It is way past time to drain the swamp!
