The US government has revoked the citizenship of an Egyptian-born man who confessed to recruiting for Al-Qaeda while living in California for 12 years. The former Silicon Valley car salesman is serving a 15-year prison sentence for terrorism in Egypt.
Khaled Abu al-Dahab, 57, lost his naturalized citizenship and any rights related to it by order of Judge Beryl A. Howell of the US District Court for the District of Columbia, the Department of Justice said in a statement on Thursday.
Al-Dahab was arrested and convicted on terrorism charges in Egypt in 1998, and confessed to being a member of the Egyptian Islamic Jihad (EIJ), an affiliate of Al-Qaeda. He also confessed to running an “Al-Qaeda communications hub” from his apartment in Santa Clara, California and recruiting Americans for the terrorist group, with Osama Bin Laden personally praising his work.
“The Justice Department is committed to protecting our nation’s national security and will aggressively pursue denaturalization of known or suspected terrorists,” Attorney General Jeff Sessions said in comments about the decision.
“When we identify individuals tied to foreign terrorist organizations who procured their US citizenship by fraud, we will initiate denaturalization proceedings – whether you reside here or abroad – and ensure you are denied entry into the United States,” Sessions added.
Al-Dahab became a US citizen in February 1997. The following year, he was arrested in Egypt and tried, convicted and sentenced to 15 years in prison for terrorism.
During the period when he was supposed to establish good moral character to qualify for citizenship under the Immigration and Nationality Act, Al-Dahab operated a terrorist hub out of his home and helped the group obtain and transfer money as well as fraudulent passports and other documents. His communications hub also “materially assisted” the commission of terrorist attacks in Egypt and Pakistan, the US government said.
Osama bin Laden was eager to recruit American citizens of Middle Eastern origin, Al-Dahab told the FBI, adding that the Al-Qaeda leader personally congratulated him on his efforts in pursuit of that goal.
The US government initiated proceedings against Al-Dahab in April 2015, seeking to revoke his citizenship because he made false statements in his naturalization documents, and “procured his citizenship by concealment of a material fact or by willful misrepresentation.” He was served the complaint via Facebook and email, the DOJ said.
False flag watch is now active
APRIL 21, 2017
False flag watch is now active.
A general alert is out for something major in the near or immediate future. Hopefully, it is just another false alarm, instead of another false flag. Either way, and danger is at hand.
Given all that is going on in the world, it is downright eerie to discover that the federal government is once again staging mock disasters that draw disturbing parallels with current world events.
In just a few days, during April 24-26th, Operation Gotham Shield will commence.
It is a tabletop, joint agency exercise involving FEMA, Homeland Security and a myriad of law enforcement and military agencies. WMD, chemical and biological units will all be on hand as a response is tested for a “simulated” nuclear detonation over the United States’ foremost urban center, in the iconic and densely populated island of Manhattan and nearby shores of New Jersey.
The potential for a more explosive false flag to spin out of control, by hijacking and ‘converting’ the simulated actions, is all too real.
This is closely related to the mechanism that many researchers believe was at work on the day of 9/11, nesting a false flag attack inside of a series of large-scale training operations which invoked emergency powers and simulated attacks in locations that were actually hit.
According to the Voice of Reason:
On April 18th thru May 5th, 2017, state, local, and federal organizations alike are planning for Operation Gotham Shield 2017 — a major nuclear detonation drill in the New York-New Jersey area, along with the U.S.-Canadian border. During this exercise, 4 nuclear devices, 2 of which are rendered “safe” during the U.S. Department of Defense (DOD) Vital Archer Exercise, and one successful 10kt detonation in the NYC/NJ area, along with one smaller detonation on the U.S./Canadian border are to take place.
Among the organizations involved are:
– U.S. Department of Energy (DOE)
– U.S. Department of Defense (DOD)
– U.S. Domestic Nuclear Detection Office (DNDO)
– U.S. Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI)
– U.S. Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA)
– U.S. Northern Command (NORTHCOM)
– State of New Jersey Office of Emergency Management
– State of New York Office of Emergency Management
– City of New York Office of Emergency Management
The following document comes form The Nevada National Security Service. Their primary role with the government is to help ensure the security of the United States and its allies by supporting the stewardship of the nuclear deterrent, providing emergency response capability and training, and contributing to key nonproliferation and arms control initiatives.
Will anything catastrophic happen during or after that window of time? Will North Korea really attack the U.S. mainland? Will someone else do so, and blame their overseas enemies?
No one who knows the answers to these questions is willing to talk. For now, all we can do is watch, wait and listen.
Don’t jump to fear and speculation, but don’t lie down or look away either.
These will be trying times.

Many American patriots have wondered why George Soros is allowed by those in power in our country, the ones who we want to believe he still doesn’t control, to engage in blatant social destruction and subversion against our nation without suffering any consequences.
It’s been particularly obvious since Donald Trump came on the scene, that Soros and his lackey Obama are pursuing their anti-America plot for world domination at the expense of the United States and all nations of the world. President Trump would seem to be the major benefactor of a crackdown on the global puppet master and racketeer, yet nothing happens. He just continues to manipulate our political, judicial and economic systems and those of virtually every nation in the world with impunity.
Soros has made plenty of enemies around the globe and one of them has decided to take action. It’s an Israeli company that has suffered at the hands of “the evil one,” filing a lawsuit on Friday which identifies Soros as everything we know him to be, including an extortionist and a “racketeer billionaire” who “puppeteered” governments.
The dispute arises out of a battle for mining rights to the Simandou iron ore in the West African nation of Guinea, an extremely rich, generational in production, area of iron ore deposits. BSG Resources Ltd. filed suit against Soros and his Open Society Foundation, identifying him as a “racketeer billionaire who acts in utter disregard for the rule of law and the rights of others.” They promise optimistically, to “put an end to Soros’ illegal enterprise.”
They accuse Soros of four types of “predicate illegalities, the “actual and threatened extortion of plaintiffs and others,” that Soros “grossly manipulated otherwise valid and lawful processes,” that “Soros fabricated, uttered and repeated savagely false accusations about plaintiffs,” being “grandmasters of the big lie.” They also allege “Soros spread his destruction of plaintiffs’ reputation and business still further,” that, having killed the deal in Guinea, he stalked them and continued in his attacks against the plaintiffs around the world.
The court filing lays out in detail the offenses it alleges to have been committed by Soros and his Open Society Foundation. If they are accurate, the allegations clearly lay a strong case for a racketeering conviction.
Steinmetz and BSGR lost rights that were legally theirs to develop the mine when the Guinean government ruled that they had illegally obtained permits by paying million in bribes, including to the wife of the former President. BSGR contends the government based their decision on lies spread by Soros and his network, including the “Soros-funded law firm of DLA Piper.”
FBI Director James Comey’s brother Peter works for DLA Piper, although he’s not listed on their registry. DLA Piper was Hillary Clinton’s fifth largest donor to her 2016 campaign, just ahead of Goldman Sachs. Although the case is filed in the Southern District of New York, rather than what we would like to believe is the more easily manipulated Guinea judicial system, the Soros tentacles are far-reaching and well funded. It will be interesting to see if justice prevails or if another Clinton – Comey type of situation is in the works.
BSGR even claimed that Soros “misled” Hussein Obama, perhaps not aware of the working relationship between the two or not seeing it in their best interest to declare it at this point.
They also addressed his long history of anti-Semitism, stating in their filing, “To Soros, Steinmetz’s success, as well as his active, passionate promotion of Israeli life, business and culture are anathemas. Soros is also well known for his long-standing animus toward the state of Israel.”
If they think he hates Jews now, wait until his assets are seized in a racketeering conviction, and a life sentence behind bars imposed. The sure to follow drastic reduction in the levels of civil unrest, both inside the United States and around the globe, will be a welcome change and a huge step forward. Who knows, BSGR could even receive Cdamages in excess of what Soros stole from them.
The bigger the cockroach, the louder the crunch when you step on them.

Attorney General Jeff Sessions says the MS-13 gang could be designated as a terrorist organization.
Asked by Fox News’s Tucker Carlson on Tuesday whether he thinks the designation would be helpful, Sessions replied, “I think so, perhaps. I believe it could qualify for that.”
“There are rules that I guess the State Department does to establish that,” he added. El Salvador has already designated MS-13 a terrorist group.
Sessions called the gang “one of the most violent gangs in the history of our country.”
“We can devastate this gang. We’re going after them,” he said. “We’re not going to allow them to take over a block, a corner of our communities and terrorize people with this violence.”
“We cannot allow this to continue. We will secure our border, expand immigration enforcement and choke off supply lines,” said Sessions.
Members of MS-13, or Mara Salvatrucha, are known for their violent methods and fierce gang loyalty. According to the National Gang Intelligence Center, MS-13 has more than 10,000 members in the United States, and more than 30,000 worldwide.
Jihadists exploited Obama’s national security weaknesses
APRIL 18, 2017
The Department of Homeland Security has revealed that federal authorities have opened investigations into radical Islamic terrorists in all 50 states, warning that the threat of terrorism has reached an all-time high.
The FBI has “open investigations in all 50 states,” and there have been at least 37 “ISIS-linked plots to attack our country” since 2013, said DHS Secretary John Kelly on Tuesday.
The U.S. border remains open and the jihadists are working to exploit that national security weakness and plot attacks “every single day,” Kelly said at a George Washington University address.
“We don’t know their intentions,” he said. “We don’t know why they’re here or why they’re coming. We are completely blind to what they’re capable of.”
In the past year alone, there have been “36 homegrown terrorists in 18 states.”
“We’ve seen an unprecedented spike in homegrown terrorism,” Kelly pointed out. “These are the cases we know about – homegrown terrorism is notoriously difficult to predict and control.”
“I tell you, without exaggeration, they try to carry out this mission each and every single day and no one can tell you how to stop it. No one,” he added. “They’re relentless.”
If that isn’t enough, Kelly estimates that approximately 10,000 European citizens have joined the caliphate in Syria and Iraq, and thousands more from Africa and Asia.
“They have learned how to make IEDs, employ drones to drop ordinance, and acquired experience on the battlefield that by all reports they are bringing back home,” Kelly said.
The Trump administration’s DHS policies and rhetoric toward domestic terrorism stands in stark contrast to Obama’s DHS.
Last December, Obama gave a speech to the military boasting that there were zero instances of domestic terrorist attacks, while ignoring the eleven homegrown terrorist attacks including the Boston Marathon bombers and the Fort Hood shooter.
And in 2014, Judicial Watch revealed that Obama’s DHS gave more than 1,500 suspected terrorists asylum in the U.S., claiming any crimes committed were done so “under duress.”
