The State Department Issues Travel Alert to U.S. Citizens Due to Increased Terrorist Threats During Busiest Travel Time
U.S. STATE DEPARTMENT ISSUES TRAVEL WARNING DUE TO INCREASED TERROR THREATS … OBAMA’S NEW TERROR PLAN, BE AFRAID.
Ahead of the busiest travel season for Americans, the U.S. State Department has issued a travel alert for U.S. citizens to possible risks of travel due to increased terrorist threats. Although the State Department claims there has been no credible intelligence regarding a specific threat, they are still putting forth the warning. So what do they really know that they are not telling us? The Daily Caller makes an interesting point, Travel alerts are not uncommon for the State Department as they routinely issue warnings for Americans traveling abroad to various hotspots to on guard or consider canceling their plans altogether. However, in light of recent events, the State Department has taken the unusual step of issuing a “Worldwide Travel Alert.”
So be safe in your travels both home and abroad and of course there is no such thing as radical Islam tied to terrorism.
The State Department alerts U.S. citizens to possible risks of travel due to increased terrorist threats. Current information suggests that ISIL (aka Da’esh), al-Qa’ida, Boko Haram, and other terrorist groups continue to plan terrorist attacks in multiple regions. These attacks may employ a wide variety of tactics, using conventional and non-conventional weapons and targeting both official and private interests. This Travel Alert expires on February 24, 2016.
Authorities believe the likelihood of terror attacks will continue as members of ISIL/Da’esh return from Syria and Iraq. Additionally, there is a continuing threat from unaffiliated persons planning attacks inspired by major terrorist organizations but conducted on an individual basis. Extremists have targeted large sporting events, theatres, open markets, and aviation services. In the past year, there have been multiple attacks in France, Nigeria, Denmark, Turkey, and Mali. ISIL/Da’esh has claimed responsibility for the bombing of a Russian airliner in Egypt.
U.S. citizens should exercise vigilance when in public places or using transportation. Be aware of immediate surroundings and avoid large crowds or crowed places. Exercise particular caution during the holiday season and at holiday festivals or events. U.S. citizens should monitor media and local information sources and factor updated information into personal travel plans and activities. Persons with specific safety concerns should contact local law enforcement authorities who are responsible for the safety and security of all visitors to their host country.

FBI DIRECTION COMPLETELY CONTRADICTS BARACK OBAMA LIES … THE US CANNOT VET SYRIAN REFUGEES!!!
FBI Director James Comey testified earlier this week during a House Committee on a Homeland Security hearing on Wednesday that the federal government DOES NOT have the ability to conduct thorough background checks on all of the 10,000 Syrian refugees that the Obama administration says will be allowed to come to the United States. As an aside, the 10,000 refugees is just the tip of the iceberg of the 100,000 that Obama wants to lets waltz into the United States.
“You can only query what you’ve collected. And with respect with Iraqi databases, we had far more because of our country’s work there for a decade. This is a different situation.”
Who are you going to believe regarding the vetting process and homeland security, the FBI or a known liar like Barack Obama and his cronies in the DOJ?
On 21 October 2015, FBI director James Comey said during a House Committee on a Homeland Security hearing on Wednesday that the federal government does NOT have the ability to conduct thorough background checks on all of the 10,000 Syrian refugees that the Obama administration says will be allowed to come to the United States.
“We can only query against that which we have collected,” Comey said in response to a line of questioning from Mississippi Representative Bennie Thompson.
“And so if someone has never made a ripple in the pond in Syria in a way that would get their identity or their interest reflected in our database, we can query our database until the cows come home, but there will be nothing show up because we have no record on that person.”

The House Votes to Halt Current Syrian Resettlement Program, Passing 289-137, Including 47 Democrats
SO MUCH FOR OBAMA SAYING THAT THE SYRIAN RESETTLEMENT PROGRAM IS JUST GOP POLITICS …
On Thursday, the House of Representatives voted 289-137 in favor of passing new criteria and background checks for refugees from Syria. The bill would suspend the program allowing Syrian and Iraqi refugees into the U.S. until key national security agencies certify they don’t pose a security risk. The Bill passed overwhelmingly and would appear to be veto-proof as 47 Democrats voted for the bill, HR 4038. The LIBS must be losing their collective minds that 47 Democrats voted in favor of their conscience, rather than blindly following the Obamamessiah.
Barack Obama is on the wrong side of this issue with the American people and it appears that he is more intent on getting his way than protecting the American people as he has threatened to veto this bill to use common sense approach to protect Americans and Obama’s own law enforcement top officials has come to the House and testified that there were gaps in the current refugee program.
Lawmakers in the U.S. House voted Thursday to essentially halt a program aimed at resettling thousands of Syrian refugees fleeing their war-torn homeland — a move that could potentially complicate President Obama’s Middle East policy efforts.
Later Thursday, the State Department said it was willing to “work” with Congress on changes to the Visa waiver program that helps bring nearly 20 million people from 38 countries to the U.S. ever year with less stringent screening.
“In light of the Paris attacks, we are certainly mindful that there are certain members of Congress that want to take another look at this,” State spokesman John Kirby. “We’re aware of some potential legislation coming. We’re going to continue to work with members of Congress on that, and any other concern they have.”
The House vote on the Syrian resettlement program, passing 289-137, reflects shifting sentiment on an issue where emotions have run deep in the aftermath of a deadly terror in Paris last week which left 129 dead. The House bill would require the FBI to create a background check of any refugee who spent time in Syria or Iraq after March 1, 2011.
The bill has a veto proof majority and 47 Democrats joined Republicans in voting against the measure. It is unclear if the Senate will take up the measure after they return from Thanksgiving recess.
“It’s a security test, not a religious test. This reflects our values. This reflects our responsibilities. And this is urgent,” Speaker Paul Ryan told reporters at his press conference on Thursday prior to the vote..
This was a vote to pass H.R. 4038 in the House.
A bill that would expand background checks on Iraqi and Syrian refugees hoping to enter the United States has moved quickly through congressional procedures. H.R. 4038, the American Security Against Foreign Enemies SAFE Act, received a House vote on November 19, just two days after it was introduced. The vote succeeded 289-137 with almost all Republicans and 47 Democrats voting in favor. The President has said he would veto the bill if it also passes the Senate.
Millions of refugees from Syria and Iraq have been forced out of their homes as a result of the ongoing civil war in Syria and militarization by the Islamic State (ISIS). Many of these refugees hope to find sanctuary in the United States and European countries. Under existing law, the United States vets refugees for one-and-a-half to two years prior to allowing refugees to enter the country. If enacted, this bill would likely pause the screening process for a short time, while new background check procedures are developed, and then lengthen the time the screening process takes.
H.R. 4038 would expand the screening process for those refugees attempting to enter the United States by requiring the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) to conduct its own background checks in addition to the Department of Homeland Security’s (DHS). Any refugee would be prohibited from entry until the FBI certifies that they pose no security threat. Refugees would only be admitted with the unanimous agreement of the FBI, DHS, and Director of National Intelligence.

French Authorities Confirm Suspected Paris Islamist Terror Attack Ringleader Abdelhamid Abaaoud Killed in Police Raid
GOOD RIDDANCE TO ISLAMIST TERRORIST RUBBAGE … ABDELHAMID ABAAOUD IS DEAD!!!
The Paris prosecutor’s office announced Thursday that the suspected ringleader, Abdelhamid Abaaoud, in last week’s bloody radical-Islamist terrorist attacks in Paris was killed in a pre-dawn raid Wednesday on an apartment building in Saint Denis. Abaaoud’s body was found in the Saint-Denis building riddled with bullets. Authorities said that he was positively identified using DNA and papillary prints, which include patterns on fingers, palms and the soles of feet. NBC News reports that the confirmation of Abdelhamid Abaaoud’s death came as authorities launched six raids in Brussels, including in the impoverished Molenbeek neighborhood where Abaaoud grew up.
The suspected ringleader in last week’s bloody terrorist attacks in Paris was killed in a pre-dawn raid Wednesday on an apartment building north of the French capital, the Paris prosecutor’s office announced Thursday.
Authorities zeroed in on a building in the Paris suburb of Saint-Denis after picking up phone conversations indicating that a relative of Abdelhamid Abaaoud, who authorities believe coordinated the shootings and bombings that killed 129 people, may have been there, a Belgian counterterrorism official said. French police believed Abaaoud himself was then still in the country, though they didn’t know exactly where.
It turns out Abaaoud was in that building in Saint-Denis. And after a violent firefight that included explosions and gunfire, he was dead.
In a statement released Thursday, the Paris prosecutor’s office said that Abaaoud’s body was found in the Saint-Denis building riddled with bullets. The office said that he was positively identified using papillary prints, which include patterns on fingers, palms and the soles of feet.
AND THE CONCERTED TERROR THREATS CONTINUE …
CNN is reporting that two Air France flights headed from the United States to Paris were diverted because of bomb threats. Flight 65, en route from Los Angeles International Airport to Paris, was diverted to Salt Lake City, Utah after a bomb threat was called in from the ground. Also, Air France Flight 55 from Washington’s Dulles International Airport to Charles de Gaulle Airport in Paris was diverted to an airport in Halifax, Nova Scotia also because of a called-in bomb threat as well. Both flights landed safely without incident. No bombs were found on either plane. Whether this was a sick hoax or a continued act of terrorism following the massacre in France, the results are the same, people living in fear that it might be terrorism. Tensions are high as incidents are occurring in the United States and across the world in the wake of the ISIS terror attacks in France this past Friday where 129 individuals were killed.
Two Air France flights headed from the United States to Paris were diverted because of bomb threats, officials said.
Both flights landed safely Tuesday night, and were searched and given the all-clear by Canadian and U.S. authorities.
Flight 65, en route from Los Angeles to Paris, was diverted to Salt Lake City after a bomb threat was called in from the ground, a U.S. government official said.
The official did not know whether anyone was arrested and was not aware of any unruly passengers on board.
Shortly afterward, Air France Flight 55 from Washington’s Dulles International Airport to Charles de Gaulle Airport in Paris was diverted to an airport in Halifax, Nova Scotia — also because of a called-in bomb threat, a government source said.
Barack Obama Arrives Late for ‘Moment of Silence’ for Paris Attacks at the G-20 Conference in Turkey
OBAMA PROBABLY HAD MORE IMPORTANT THINGS TO DO, LIKE FINISHING HIS ROUND OF GOLF OR HIS MEAL …
The optics are typical of this president. On Sunday at the G-20 conference in Turkey, Barack Obama showed up late on a moment of silence being held by world leaders to honor the victims of Friday’s terrorist attacks in Paris. I am certain he will find someone to blame for his being late to this function. Had it been Obama providing an apology to the conference for the United States being responsible for the rise of ISIS and terrorism, I am certain he would have been on time.
President Obama walked in late Sunday on a moment of silence being held by world leaders in Turkey to honor the victims of Friday’s terrorist attacks in Paris.
Reporters traveling with the president said Mr. Obama had not yet arrived when other world leaders at the G-20 conference in Turkey began their silent observance around a large conference table.
Mr. Obama walked in after they had begun, and took his place next to Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan.
The moment that radical Islamic terrorist opened fire during the rock concert in Paris, France at the Bataclan was captured on video. Many in the audience that the popping sounds were part of the shows pyrotechnics. Sadly, it was not. It was Islamic terrorists murdering innocents with Kalashnikovs and in the end, 89 people were dead and scores more injured.
There was a moment — just a moment — when the concert hall was eerily quiet. The rock band had stopped playing, and people had dived to the floor after realizing the sudden explosions hadn’t been part of the show. Everything was silent.
Then the attackers started again, strafing the crowd with automatic gunfire. There were screams of terror, the staccato of Kalashnikovs and cries of the wounded, followed by a standoff with police and the explosions of suicide bombs.
By the time the ordeal was over at one of Paris’ celebrated entertainment venues, 89 people were dead and many more were wounded, entangled bodies in pools of blood.
A French survivor summed it up with one word: “Hell.”
It was a sell-out crowd at the Bataclan on Friday for the 9 p.m. concert by an American group, the Eagles of Death Metal. Less than an hour after the band began its set, a series of bangs rang out. Many thought it was firecrackers or pyrotechnics.
