Ahead of Raider Focus: 1/4 Mile Long Military Train Loaded Down Near Border of Wyoming and Colorado

Published on May 22, 2015

http://www.undergroundworldnews.com

Yesterday, All News Pipeline published a story detailing the ‘Raider Focus’ war games in Colorado and what is being called the largest military convoy since World War 2 in the Colorado area. While the convoy officially does not begin moving men and equipment until the 26th-30th of May, a massive amount of military movement is ALREADY taking place near the Wyoming/Colorado state line as shown in these outstanding brand new pictures just sent to ANP by a reader. We also learn below of a Colorado man who was visited by the FBI recently for calling in questions about Jade Helm 15 while we’re witnessing more preparation across the nation continuing for a ‘massive event’ – and everything is beginning to come together now.

While Colorado has allegedly pulled out of Jade Helm 15, they’re certainly not neglecting military preparation in the state and the outstanding pictures above and below of this train, which stretched for over a 1/4 mile, and we’re told the photographer has been traveling these roads for years and has never in his life seen this much military movement and activity as he has seen in the last few months. We’ve embedded several other videos taken in the past week which clearly prove what we’re watching is not for ‘Jade Helm’ states only but for something huge across the entire country.

Somali Muslim in Minnesota Who Joined ISIS Vowed to “Spit on America” at Border

“In another recorded conversation, Farah told the informant he would kill FBI agents ‘if our backs are against the wall,’ prosecutors said.” More of the poison fruit of Obama’s disastrous immigration policies. He is bringing Muslims into this country without making any effort to determine if they have jihadist ties or sympathies. And he is bringing them here in large numbers. –

“Somali Muslim in Minnesota Who Joined ISIS Vowed to ‘Spit on America’ at Border,” by Daniel Greenfield, FrontPage, May 22, 2015:

Maybe it’s time we stopped importing huge numbers of Somalis into this country. We seem to have enough people on welfare and terrorists without them. And this is what we get in return from them.

One Minnesota man accused of trying to travel to Syria to join the Islamic State group told an informant he’d kill FBI agents if they tried to stop him, while another told friends he’d “spit on America” at the U.S.-Mexico border, according to a document filed Thursday by prosecutors.

The document reveals new details about Mohamed Abdihamid Farah and Abdirahman Yasin Daud, both 21. They are among six Minnesota men arrested last month for conspiracy to provide material support to a foreign terrorist organization.

Daud also allegedly said at least once that his family knew he was going to Syria and they “won’t say a word.” He also spoke of getting an assault rifle in Syria and said he, Farah and the informant would become martyrs.

Which means the family should also be charged, and then preferably denaturalized and deported. All this is going on with the knowledge of Somali Muslim communities. The Little Mogadishus they embedded in America are also Little ISIS states.

In a conversation recorded as Daud, Farah and the informant were driving to San Diego, Daud allegedly said: “I’m going to spit on America at the border crossing.”

He’s been spitting on America all this time anyway.

In another recorded conversation, Farah told the informant he would kill FBI agents “if our backs are against the wall,” prosecutors said.

It seems to be our backs that are against the wall. We’re importing ISIS into America. Maybe it’s time we stopped doing that.

Why is the FBI Sending Agents Door-to-Door to Ask Coloradoans About Jade Helm?

BY WARNER TODD HUSTON

Why is the FBI going around door-to-door asking people about the military’s Jade Helm exercises? That is what Colorado resident James Casale wants to know.

Screen Shot 2015-05-22 at 6.06.15 PM

If you are unaware of the US government’s Jade Helm exercise, it has alarmed citizens throughout the south west.

The exercise is supposed to be a training exercise for members of various “elite branches” of the US military, but many feel it is really a way to train the military to attack our own citizens.

Screen Shot 2015-05-22 at 6.07.10 PM

Now comes the FBI likely looking to infidels to arrest…

Casale was startled by the whole thing. Here is what he wrote as a little background on the day he made the video recording.

Three minutes before they knocked. I totally thought my brother was knocking and messing with me. When I got to the door I seen their badges. They said, “Just here as a knock and talk about a concerning phone call.” So I used my dog as an excuse to grab my cell phone and pray for wisdom, insight, and courage. So I can’t take the credit for staying calm. I did call my state officials in Nebraska to see if they had gotten anything asking for my states participation. Never called the FBI or any Fed’s for that matter.

Now, notice in the video that the FBI agents (if that is what they really are) weren’t taking any notes. That means that they weren’t really investigating anything about Jade Helm and were really snooping into Mr. Casale with the possible intent of arresting him if they could justify it.

After all, the FBI IS THE GOVERNMENT and if they needed to know anything about Jade Helm they could just ask their bosses!

So, what do you think? Is Jade Helm something to worry about?

AP: Hillary Clinton Received Now-Classified Benghazi Info on Private Email Server, Documents Show

WASHINGTON (AP)   – Former Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton received information on her private email server that has now been classified about the deadly attack on U.S. diplomatic facilities in Benghazi.

The email in question, forwarded to Clinton by her deputy chief of staff Jake Sullivan, relates to reports of arrests in Libya of possible suspects in the attack.

The information was not classified at the time the email was sent but was upgraded from “unclassified” to “secret” on Friday at the request of the FBI, according to State Department officials. They said 23 words of the Nov. 18, 2012, message were redacted from the day’s release of 296 emails totaling 896 pages to protect information that could damage foreign relations.

Because the information was not classified at the time the email was sent, no laws were violated, but Friday’s redaction shows that Clinton received sensitive information on her unsecured personal server.

No other redactions were made to the collection of Benghazi-related emails for classification reasons, the officials said. They added that the Justice Department had not raised classification concerns about the now-redacted 1 1/2 lines when the documents were turned over to the special House committee looking into the Benghazi attack in February. The committee retains a complete copy of the email, the officials said.

It is at the end of a chain of communication that originated with Bill Roebuck, the then-director of the Office of Maghreb Affairs, that pointed out that Libyan police had arrested several people who might have connections to the attack. The redacted portion appears to relate to who provided the information about the alleged suspects to the Libyans. A total of five lines related to the source of the information were affected, but only the 23 words were deleted because the FBI deemed them to be classified.

FBI ADMITS NO MAJOR CASES CRACKED WITH PATRIOT ACT SNOOPING POWERS

FBI agents can’t point to any major terrorism cases they’ve cracked thanks to the key snooping powers in the Patriot Act

By Maggie Ybarra – The Washington Times – Thursday, May 21, 2015
FBI agents can’t point to any major terrorism cases they’ve cracked thanks to the key snooping powers in the Patriot Act, the Justice Department’s inspector general said in a report Thursday that could complicate efforts to keep key parts of the law operating.

Inspector General Michael E. Horowitz said that between 2004 and 2009, the FBI tripled its use of bulk collection under Section 215 of the Patriot Act, which allows government agents to compel businesses to turn over records and documents, and increasingly scooped up records of Americans who had no ties to official terrorism investigations.

The FBI did finally come up with procedures to try to minimize the information it was gathering on nontargets, but it took far too long, Mr. Horowitz said in the 77-page report, which comes just as Congress is trying to decide whether to extend, rewrite or entirely nix Section 215.

Backers say the Patriot Act powers are critical and must be kept intact, particularly with the spread of the threat from terrorists. But opponents have doubted the efficacy of Section 215, particularly when it’s used to justify bulk data collection such as in the case of the National Security Agency’s phone metadata program, revealed in leaks from former government contractor Edward Snowden.

The new report adds ammunition to those opponents, with the inspector general concluding that no major cases have been broken by use of the Patriot Act’s records-snooping provisions.

“The agents we interviewed did not identify any major case developments that resulted from use of the records obtained in response to Section 215 orders,” the inspector general concluded — though he said agents did view the material they gathered as “valuable” in developing other leads or corroborating information.

The report said agents bumped their number of bulk-data requests under Section 215 from seven in 2004 to 21 in 2009 as a result of technological advances and legislative changes that the intelligence community believed expanded the reach of the law.

Increasingly, that meant scooping up information on those who weren’t targets of a terrorism investigation, Mr. Horowitz said. He said that while Section 215 authority allows the government to do that, the FBI needed more checks to make sure it was using the power properly.

“While the expanded scope of these requests can be important uses of Section 215 authority, we believe these expanded uses require continued significant oversight,” he concluded.

The report was an update to a previous study done in 2008 that urged the department to figure out ways to minimize the amount of data it was gathering on ordinary Americans even as it was targeting terrorists.

In Thursday’s report Mr. Horowitz said the administration finally came up with procedures — five years later. He said it never should have taken that long but that he considers that issue solved.

The report was heavily redacted, and key details were deleted. The entire chart showing the number of Section 215 requests made from 2007 through 2009 was blacked out, as was the breakdown of what types of investigations they stemmed from: counterintelligence, counterterrorism, cyber or foreign intelligence investigations.

Section 215 of the Patriot Act is slated to expire at the end of this month. The House, in an overwhelming bipartisan vote, passed a bill to renew it but also to limit it so the government could no longer do bulk collection such as the NSA phone data program. That legislation is known as the USA Freedom Act.

But Senate Republican leaders have balked, insisting the NSA program and Section 215 should be kept intact as is.

Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, who is leading the fight to protect the NSA program, is counting on his opponents not being able to muster the 60 votes needed to pass the bill, leaving them with the choice of either extending Section 215 or seeing all of the powers expire — including those that would go after specific terrorist suspects. Mr. McConnell believes that, faced with that choice, enough of his colleagues will vote to extend all of the powers.

FBI Director James B. Comey asked Congress this week to make sure Section 215 and two other parts of the Patriot Act, also slated to expire at the end of the month, are preserved. Those other powers include the ability to target lone wolf actors and to switch wiretaps if suspects switch their phones.

As for Section 215, Mr. Comey said Congress should at least preserve the power to go after individuals’ records.

“If we lose that authority, which I don’t think is controversial with folks, that is a big problem,” he said Wednesday at a forum at the Georgetown University Law Center.

But most of the Section 215 debate has revolved around bulk collection. Earlier this month a federal appeals court ruled that the Patriot Act does not envision the kind of phone program the NSA has been running, which gathers and stores five years’ worth of records of the numbers, dates and durations of calls made in the U.S.

For anti-bulk surveillance advocates, Thursday’s report further undermines Section 215.

“This report adds to the mounting evidence that Section 215 has done little to protect Americans and should be put to rest,” said American Civil Liberties Union Staff Attorney Alex Abdo.

Bulk data collection creates false leads, ties up investigative resources and, essentially, undermines national security, said Stephen Kohn, an attorney at Kohn, Kohn & Colapinto, LLP and advocate for government whistleblowers. Also, increased FBI dependency on that bulk data collection indicates that the agency is lacking the appropriate resources for conducting successful counterterrorism operations, Mr. Kohn said.

“They have a large amount of agents who are working counterterrorism that have no human resources, no leads, no infiltrations, so they have nothing else to do,” he said. “In other words, when they staffed up and made [counterterrorism] a major priority, these agents need to do something. And they’re doing what they know to do, and that’s electronic surveillance.”

But former FBI agents said opponents wanted to callously cripple one of the government’s investigative agencies by depriving it of a critical data collection tool at a time of new terror threats.

“ISIS is singing a siren song, calling people to their death to crash on the rocks — and it’s the rocks that ISIS will take credit for,” said Ron Hosko, president of Law Enforcement Legal Defense Fund and former assistant director of the FBI. “They’re looking for those who are disaffected, disconnected and willing to commit murder. So if we’re willing to take away tools, OK, congressman, stand behind it [and] take the credit for putting the FBI in the dark.”

ATF FBI Merger Plan for Stricter Gun Laws

Published on May 21, 2015
A new strategy to implement stricter gun control laws is being proposed to merge the FBI and the ATF.

The new giant monolith could better crush the Second Amendment rights of United States citizens, according to liberal advocacy group, The Center for American Progress.

A two-year study by the group with close ties to Obama, concluded—no surprise here—that that the ATF by itself couldn’t adequately enforce gun laws and sufficiently regulate the firearms industry.

But before we break out the violins for an overwhelmed ATF, let’ remember that our Founding Fathers put in the Second Amendment in large part to keep government from regulating guns so that the gun owner would have the element of surprise to protect himself or herself again unlawful intrusions by individuals of these enshrined rights by government since an armed population is the best defense and most efficient method of preserving national freedom and personal liberty.

But some people either don’t get it or they do get it and they clearly no longer want us to have a free country. One such individual is Center for American Progress Senior Vice President Arkadi Gerney, who said, “Too often, the leadership, management, and resources lag behind the dedication of the agents.” Huh? Dedication to do what? To disarm Americans en masse? The Hitlers of history had that kind of dedication and we must neither be doomed to repeat those lessons paid for by the blood of our grandparents of ‘The Greatest Generation,’ nor empower new Stalins and Lenins and Obamas whose gun control ideology is virtually identical.

Gun-grabbing Gerney went on to say, “With 33 people murdered with guns in the United States every day, it is time to think big about how best to fulfill the ATF’s mission.”

Well, Mr. Gerney, here’s our suggestion from Gun Owners of America Executive Director Larry Pratt, “The best way to fulfill the ATF’s mission: Dismantle it and merge it with nothing.”

FBI visits NJ high school, warns students about ISIS recruitment threat

Capture

The FBI has paid a visit to a New Jersey high school, warning students about the online recruitment tactics of ISIS. The agency told the teens not to believe the terror group’s propaganda, as it is trawling the internet to recruit vulnerable young people.

The Tuesday event, held at Bergen Arts and Science Charter School in Hackensack, NJ, was led by a senior FBI intelligence analyst who did not want to be named for security reasons.

During the talk, he told students that Islamic State (formerly ISIS/ISIL) was using social media and glossy magazines to train terrorists and make its mission seem appealing.

One of the tactics mentioned was a sophisticated recruitment video, aimed at luring young people into joining the terror group.

The footage features a Canadian man who says that anyone can play a role in ISIS’s mission, failing to mention the atrocities inflicted by the terror group. That same man later died while fighting for the group in Syria.

The event, part of the FBI’s outreach campaign to warn about the terror threat, seemed to have accomplished its intended goal on some of the students.

Brayan Liz, a senior, said the talk was useful because “100 percent of students are on social media,” NorthJersey.com reported.

Another senior, Robert Harris, told CBS New York that he is “more interested than scared,” adding that he “wants to know how to find terrorists; how to stop them from doing things.”

“It definitely was eye-opening,” said high school senior Zoey Zibor. “You know, you learn that it’s in your own backyard. It’s Americans citizens wanting to join these terrorist groups.”

The FBI analyst stressed that the talk was about ISIS as a terror group, not a religious one. Still, some students expressed frustration about the event.

“I did kind of feel offended because they’re putting a bad reputation on Islam in general. That has nothing to do with Islam,” said junior Safiye Taspinar.

That sentiment was shared by Glenn Katon, legal director for the civil liberties group Muslim Advocates.

He tweeted that Muslims account for only about 6 percent of extremist violence in the US, but the FBI focuses all of its anti-extremism measures on Muslims.

“The FBI keeps peddling ‘radicalization’ rubbish,” he wrote.

The presentation was requested by the school’s security director, Leo McGuire, “to educate and inform students so they don’t get dragged into the recruitment tools that some of the terrorist organizations are using.”

He added that students have a “part to play in count-terrorism operations.”

The FBI plans to take its message to other schools in the tri-state area.

More than 150 Americans – some of them teenagers – have traveled abroad to join ISIS, according to the FBI. The agency’s intelligence analyst said that all of the bureau’s 56 field offices have had cases of people being recruited to join the terror group.
