Venezuelan illegal migrants reportedly organizing paramilitary cells in the U.S.

By: Clare Lopez | CCNS

New reporting about those Venezuelan ex-convicts being released by the Nicolas Maduro regime indicates that the situation may be even worse than initially thought.

After leading open opposition to then-Venezuelan dictator Hugo Chavez in 2002, former Venezuelan lieutenant in the National Guard Jose Antonio Colina Pulido fled to the U.S. in 2003 to seek political asylum. He has been living in exile in the U.S. ever since. He has provided information to a number of U.S. agencies, including the Drug Enforcement Agency (DEA).

According to Colina, current Venezuelan ruler Nicolas Maduro not only has been releasing convicted criminals from his prisons who’ve joined migrant caravans north to the U.S. but doing so specifically on the condition that they migrate north to cross into the U.S. Colina, who’s been posting on social media and in online videos, says that among this flow out of Venezuela are Venezuelan paramilitary groups who are not only penetrating the southwest U.S. border but coming in organized units, led by a unit commander.

Colina continues to obtain information from Venezuelan exiles, some among the migrant flows and some already in the U.S.  According to their information, once in the U.S., some of these Venezuelan paramilitary groups have been organizing into cell structures. Colina fears that Maduro may intend to sow chaos and conflict among the Venezuelan exile communities in the U.S. as well as destabilize the U.S. itself, as long as the southern border remains open.

When we combine this new information with the understanding that since at least 2005 when Mahmoud Ahmadinejad was President of Iran and Hugo Chavez was President of Venezuela, the Islamic Republic of Iran and its Lebanese Shi’ite terror proxy Hizballah have established extensive networks in Venezuela, the possible implications of this new reporting become very troubling. Iran has established a foothold across Venezuela, as well as elsewhere in Latin America, using its presence within business and financial institutions, diplomatic outposts, mosques, and Islamic Centers, strategic infrastructure projects including mines, ports, and weapons production companies, as well as throughout the Venezuelan government to project influence and power into the heart of the Western Hemisphere.

Not only Iran and Hizballah but allies from among the Cuban intelligence and security services, are deeply embedded in the Venezuelan regime. The movement of Venezuelan illegal migrants across the open, unprotected U.S. southern border and on up into communities all over the country, perhaps directed and organized by these malign actors, should be a wakeup call to the Biden administration, but especially the Department of Homeland Security and Customs and Border Protection.

Venezuelan ex-convicts, paramilitary organizing ‘cells’ in U.S., says exiled Chavez officer

Rumors are circulating among Venezuelans in exile who are concerned about the arrival of Venezuelan paramilitary groups to the U.S.For the past four weeks, retired Venezuelan lieutenant and political exile José Antonio Colina Pulido says he has been alerting U.S. authorities through his online show and social media accounts that he has been receiving information Nicolás Maduro is releasing convicted criminals on the condition that they would emigrate from the country to the United States.

According to CBP, between October 2021 and July 2022 more than 130,000 Venezuelan migrants have had encounters at the border with immigration agents after illegally crossing into the United States.

The Truth About 9/11

By: Cliff Kincaid

On the anniversary of 9/11, I am used to seeing the claims that Dick Cheney and other officials bombed the World Trade Center in an “inside job” designed to drag us into war. This is the Alex Jones school of thought. He also claimed the children murdered at Sandy Hook were child actors. For the latter, he has been ordered to pay millions of dollars in damages to the families of the victims.

When former Trump adviser Stephen K. Bannon promotes the Alex Jones school of lunatic thought, he makes Trump supporters look stupid.

Jones became the face of the 9/11 “truth” movement, even though another Jones, former Obama official, and Marxist Van Jones, was another prominent advocate of the view that America attacked itself on 9/11.

The 9/11 “truth movement” was not concerned about the real truth but political gain for the opponents of the Bush Administration. That is why a Marxist like Van Jones, and others like him from the “progressive” side of the political spectrum, were a major part of that apparatus.

This is not to say that there are no anomalies and problems in the official story. We know that a military intelligence unit, Able Danger, had identified several of the 9/11 hijackers in the U.S. a year before the 9/11 terrorist attacks were carried out.

And the FBI knew as well.

The Iranian octopus predator at the US’ backyard

By: Yoram Ettinger | CCNS

The Saudi ArabNews reported that “the presence of Hezbollah and Iran’s Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps in Latin America is considered important by Iran since it provides a base from which it could strike against American targets…  Iran has infiltrated not only Argentina but also Brazil, Uruguay, Chile, Guyana, Paraguay, Trinidad and Tobago, Suriname, and Colombia…. In Foz do Iguacu, Brazil there is the largest Muslim community in the Argentina-Paraguay-Brazil Tri-Border Area. Iran is able to infiltrate and manipulate that community…. Iran’s agents are potentially able to enter the US through legitimate border crossings, or among convoys of illegal immigrants….. Meanwhile, Hezbollah continues its efforts to expand its terrorist activities [in Latin America]….

“[The Iranian proxy] Houthi militants transport weapons from Brazil to Yemen….  Hezbollah is involved in the illegal arms trade in Brazil, maintaining contacts with Brazil’s PCC (the most powerful criminal organization in Latin America)…. Brazil’s Forjas Taurus, the largest arms manufacturer in Latin America, is involved in sales of weapons to [pro-Iran] Yemeni arms dealer….”

According to the British E-International Relations, “Iran may well be the most important, and at the same time the most complex and the most volatile, of all the foreign policy problems with which the US must deal…. Iran continues to infiltrate [the US’] backyard….

“Iran’s foreign policy toward Latin America can be seen not only as antagonistic toward the U.S. and its national security interests. It fulfills Iran’s attempt to establish a greater presence in the US’ own backyard….

“Iran’s Latin American partners are part of the so-called ‘Pink Tide’ that came to power between the years of 1998 and 2009…. Despite the fact that the “Pink Tide” did not have a clear-cut ideology, they were united in opposition to Washington….”

Please Slap Me in the Face

By: Cliff Kincaid

http://www.usasurvival.org/blog/please-slap-me-in-the-face

Will Smith slapped Chris Rock for insulting his wife. China Joe is insulting America on a daily basis, contradicting himself, and then getting angry. His erratic conduct is dangerous for America and the world.

Despite disasters at home and abroad, including a foreign war, record debt levels, soaring shipping costs, rising crime, surging inflation, and an educated idiot Supreme Court nominee, at least 40 percent of the American people support Brain Dead Biden. No wonder books for dummies are so popular with Americans.

The latest example of Biden’s cognitive impairment came when he said Putin “cannot remain in power” in Russia and quickly said he wasn’t advocating regime change.​

The Biden regime then lied about what Biden said, claiming he was against Putin exercising power over other countries. Then Biden declared he wasn’t backing down.

In my view, neither Putin nor Biden should remain in power.

A Wall Street Journal writer said Biden’s original statement could spark a nuclear war, and Russia has more nukes than us. Why? Because liberals have agreed to bad “arms control” agreements with the Russians.  Biden is speaking from a position of weakness.

Speaking of bad arms control agreements, Biden, who once wrote an article about how he loved the New World Order, is so brain dead that he continues to pursue a nuclear deal with Iran after it launched 12 ballistic missiles at the American consulate at Erbil, Iraq.

SCOTUS frontrunner Ketanji Brown Jackson was an Advocate for Terror Suspects Housed at Gitmo

By: Denise Simon | Founders Code

Supreme Court frontrunner Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson was an active and dedicated advocate for terror suspects housed at Guantanamo Bay, contrary to press accounts and her own representations.

Jackson has portrayed her work for the detainees as that of a disinterested professional fulfilling an assignment. But a Washington Free Beacon review of court filings dating back to 2005 indicates that Jackson was deeply committed to equal treatment for accused terrorists. Her advocacy was zealous and often resembled ideological cause lawyering, even in her capacity as a public defender. At times, she flirted with unsubstantiated left-wing theories that were debunked by government investigators. On other occasions, she accused Justice Department lawyers of egregious misconduct with little evidence.

As a federal public defender, Jackson represented a Guantanamo detainee accused of attacking a U.S. military base in Afghanistan. She continued to advocate on behalf of detainees and attack Bush-era detention policies in the Supreme Court after she left public service for private practice.

President Joe Biden’s approval numbers tumbled after the chaotic withdrawal from Afghanistan last summer. A retread of the War on Terror could be unwelcome for the administration, especially as new developments reveal the extent of the government’s ineptness. Leaked Situation Room documents released by Axios Wednesday show that top administration officials were scrambling to plan a mass evacuation of civilians as late as Aug. 14, the day before Taliban forces reached Kabul. The White House did not respond to the Free Beacon‘s request for comment.

Jackson’s public defender unit was charged with representing Guantanamo inmates who challenged their incarceration in a federal court in Washington, D.C. Jackson’s client was a detainee named Khiali-Gul, who maintained that he was an innocent man wrongfully detained.

The US and the Iranian Octopus (part 2)

By: Yoram Ettinger | CCNS

Since the 1978/79 revolution against the Shah of Iran, the Ayatollahs regime has adhered to its mega-goal of global Shite domination, developing mega-capabilities (nuclear, ballistic technologies, and worldwide terrorism), aiming to remove/subordinate its mega-obstacle, the USA.

During 1962-1970, then anti-US Egypt was involved in the Yemen civil war, as a springboard to topple the pro-US regime in Saudi Arabia and, subsequently, all other pro-US Arab regimes in a most critical region to global trade, oil, and security, the Arabian Peninsula.

Since 2011, Iran’s anti-US Ayatollahs are deeply involved in the Yemen civil war on the side of the anti-US Shite Houthis (“Soldiers of Allah”) – via Iranian and Hezbollah manpower, military supplies, training, and intelligence – as a springboard to oust the pro-US Sunni House of Saud (bordering North Yemen), and subsequently, all other pro-US Sunni regimes in the Arabian Peninsula.

In February 2021, the US removed Yemen’s Shite Houthis – who are Iran’s proxy – from the list of terrorist organizations, courted the rogue Ayatollahs regime, terminated US support of the pro-US Saudi military offensive against the anti-US Houthis, and pressured the Saudis on account of human rights violations. However, in November 2021, the Houthis stormed the US Embassy in Sanaa, holding a few of the local staff hostage, demonstrating – once again – that Islamic terrorists bite the hands that feed them.

Yemen’s geostrategic importance for the US

The limbs of the Iranian octopus extend from the Persian Gulf and Central Asia to the whole Middle East, Europe, Africa, South, Central, and North America, including Yemen, where Iran’s Ayatollahs outflank the Persian Gulf, Arabian Sea, Indian Ocean, and the Gulf of Aden, playing a decisive role in fueling the civil war, as a dagger aimed at its Sunni arch-rival, the pro-US Saudi Arabia.

Iran’s Ayatollahs are aware of the geostrategic significance of Yemen – regionally and globally – and its impact on the national security, homeland security, and economy of the US, “The Great Satan,” which they consider the most critical obstacle on their way to global domination.

More and more Havana Syndrome Attacks

By: Denise Simon | Founders Code

Primer in part from the BBC:

A CIA officer who was traveling to India this month with the agency’s director has reported symptoms consistent with so-called Havana syndrome, US media report.

Three unnamed sources told US media that the officer has received medical attention for the mystery illness.

The CIA has not responded to requests for comment by the BBC.

It’s the second reported case in less than a month, as US authorities continue to investigate its cause.

In August, Vice President Kamala Harris’ flight from Singapore to Vietnamese capital Hanoi was briefly delayed after an American official reported symptoms similar to Havana syndrome.

The syndrome first affected people at the US and Canadian embassies in Havana, Cuba, in 2016 and 2017. Dozens of other episodes have since been reported by American officials in the US, China, Russia, Germany, and Austria.

Havana syndrome reported at United States embassy in ...

And now the most recent:

The U.S. Embassy in Bogota, Columbia is host to anti-narcotics operatives, spies, diplomats, and aid workers. Just a week before secretary of state Anthony Blinken is scheduled to visit the South American country and after US President Joe Biden last week signed a law that provides increased funding and medical care for US government employees who fall ill with “Havana syndrome”.

The U.S. has Agreed to Financial Aid to Afghanistan

By: Denise Simon | Founders Code

An interagency delegation of U.S. officials met this weekend with senior representatives with the Taliban and called the two-day meeting in Doha “candid and professional,” a statement from the State Department obtained by Fox News read.

The meetings covered a lot of ground and ranged from terrorism concerns to human rights in the country. The statement said the delegation also called for the safe passage for U.S. citizens and others in the country.

The U.S. delegation—once again—told the Taliban that they will be judged on their actions, not only their words, Ned Price, the spokesman, said.

Taliban political spokesman Suhail Shaheen told the Associated Press there would be no cooperation with Washington on containing the increasingly active Islamic State group in Afghanistan.

IS has taken responsibility for a number of recent attacks, including a suicide bombing Friday that killed 46 minority Shiite Muslims and wounded dozens as they prayed in a mosque in the northern city of Kunduz.

Last month, the White House said there is “no rush” to recognize the Taliban as the official government of Afghanistan, saying that recognition from the U.S. will be “dependent” on their actions, as the group announced the formation of its new government.

Winning Justice for Our Father

By: Cliff Kincaid | America’s Survival

Joseph Connor, whose father was killed by the Puerto Rican FALN and lost his cousin on 9/11, says Democrats comparing the January 6 trespassers in the Capitol to the horrors of 9/11 are “pathetic” and “dangerous” and should be held accountable for “their long patronage to terrorist enemies of our county,” including such Cuban-sponsored groups as the FALN, the Black Liberation Army, and the Weather Underground. His book “Shattered Lives” is being made into a movie. www.shatteredlivesmovie.com

China Joe Gives America the Middle Finger

By: James Simpson | Jihad Watch

This weekend, I watched horrific videos of Afghans being murdered by the Taliban. Meanwhile, the State Department has withheld permission for privately arranged flights to leave Afghanistan and refuses to accept Afghans with valid documents who are still stuck in Afghanistan, while simultaneously acknowledging that many of the approximately 73,500 Afghans and other civilians the U.S. brought out of Afghanistan by the contrived August 31 deadline have not been properly vetted, and likely never will be.

Many of these “refugees” are already showing their true colors, as incidents of violent crime, including assault and rape, have skyrocketed at the American military bases where these people have been temporarily housed. According to one whistleblower, base security is being threatened, as Afghan migrants are free to roam. Afghan men have also brought child brides with them. Meanwhile, approximately 5,500 Americans were brought out of Afghanistan. But many weren’t — and along with U.S. permanent residents still stuck there, they number in the thousands, not the Biden administration’s claim of 200. Blinken has finally acknowledged about 5,000 green card holders are still there.

To add insult to injury, Biden has announced his intention to raise the 2022 refugee cap (the number of refugees allowed to resettle in the U.S.) to 125,000. With Biden’s open contempt for any and all security measures, some of these Middle Eastern “refugees” will likely be jihadis. All this is while over 12,000 illegal aliens sit under a bridge in Del Rio, Texas, waiting to be processed, countless thousands flood the border elsewhere, and cartels have free rein to engage in human trafficking and import vast quantities of fentanyl and other dangerous drugs.

None of this is by mistake.
