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.
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.
American Student Nohemi Gonzalez from California State University – Long Beach Identified as Victim in Paris Islamic Terrorist Massacre
FIRST AMERICAN IDENTIFIED AMONG THE 129 CONFIRMED DEAD FROM THE ISLAMIST TERROR ATTACKS IN PARIS, FRANCE …
23 year old Nohemi Gonzalez, a senior design major at California State University-Long Beach, who was studying abroad at the Strate College of Design in Sèvres, France is among the 129 individuals who were killed by Islamofascist terrorist in Paris, France. Nohemi Gonzalez, known to her friends as Mimi, was an innocent young woman with her whole future ahead of her. That was until the evil of radical Islam took it from her and countless other innocent victims.
Sorry folks but enough of the political correctness, what other religion in present day society do we have to worry about killing innocents who are just eating in a restaurant, at a club or a soccer game? Enough is enough.
A college student from California is the first American fatality identified in the Paris terror attacks.
Nohemi Gonzalez, 23, a senior design major at California State University-Long Beach spending a semester studying at Strate College of Design in Sèvres, France, was killed at one of the restaurants struck by terrorists Friday night.
“She was a great girl, one of the best,” her aunt, Sandra Felt, told NBC News. “She planned her whole trip to Paris — always a go-getter, very organized person. She worked to save money for her trip.”
Felt said the family called Gonzalez by the nickname “Mimi,” and said that “everything was working out” for the woman who always dreamed of learning French and studying in Paris.
OUR EDUCATION SYSTEM IS STUCK ON STUPID …
The Dexter McCarty Middle School in Gresha, Oregon has suspended an 8th grader, Alan Holme, for wearing a Battlecross t-shirt to school that supported out United States military. REALLY? The school gave the boy the choice between changing his shirt or going home. This wise and proud young American chose to go home. Alan Holmes stated, “I’m not changing into a Dexter shirt. They won’t let me wear a shirt that supports the people that keep us free, I’m not going to support them.” The loser from the school district responded with, “we have a policy on student dress and grooming. Weapons on a shirt are not appropriate in a school setting.” Really, patriotism and what allows a school to freely teach has nothing to do with our US Military?
Hmm, so the school can’t differentiate between supporting our trooper and the depiction of a gun promoting violence? Just curious, does the school system differentiate between good touch and bad touch? How about Muslims and radical Islam? Yeah, I thought so. This is just another case where the student has more common sense than adults. This is just more liberal, weeny indoctrination in our schools.
An Oregon middle school cracked down last week on a student who showed up in a battlefield cross T-shirt that said, “Standing for those who stood for us.”
Eighth-grader Alan Holmes’ T-shirt imagery of a rifle, helmet and boots denoting loss may have symbolized patriotism to him, but not to administrators at Dexter McCarty Middle School in Gresham who demanded the boy change his shirt and then suspended him when he refused.
“I’m not changing into a Dexter shirt,” the 13-year-old told Fox 12. “They won’t let me wear a shirt that supports the people that keep us free, I’m not going to support them.”
The showdown with the principal over Alan’s T-shirt took place Wednesday while emotions were still roiling in the state over the mass shooting at Umqua Community College that left a teacher and eight students dead.
Randy Quaid & His Wife Evi Arrested at Vermont Border, Accused of Fleeing Canada Ahead of His Deportation Hearing
BIZARRE, JUST BIZARRE …
Randy Quaid and his wife Evi were arrested as “fugitives from justice” Friday night at the Vermont and Canada border in an apparent attempt to leave Canada before Quaid’s deportation back to the United States. The two were detained by U.S. Customs and Border Protection agents at the Vermont point of entry in Highgate at about 8 p.m. Quaid and his wife were taken into custody by troopers, where a judge set bail at $500,000 each. Randy Quaid had previously been denied permanent residency in Canada.
Randy Quaid was being held at the North West State Correctional Center and Evi Quaid at the Chittenden Regional Correctional Facility. According to an interview with the AP, the 65-year-old actor said from a detention center in Laval, Quebec, on Wednesday that he would like to resolve his legal issues in California and “move on with my life.” Quaid and his wife fled to Canada because Quaid is wanted in Santa Barbara, California, to face felony vandalism charges filed in 2010 after he and his wife, Evi, were found squatting in a guesthouse of a home they previously owned.
Who knew Quaid’s role as Cousin Eddie from the Vacation films was spot on to his real life persona as a wing-nut?
Randy Quaid and his wife were arrested as “fugitives from justice” Friday night at the border between Vermont and Canada, apparently attempting to leave Canada days before Quaid’s deportation back to the United States, PEOPLE has confirmed.
U.S. Customs and Border Protection agents detained Quaid and his wife, Evi, at the Vermont point of entry in Highgate at about 8 p.m. local time, according to a press release from state police.
Agents determined the Quaids were “fugitives from justice” from California, where they are wanted in connection with a felony vandalism case.
Who finds it rather ironic that Border patrol is able to arrest these two on the US-Canadian Border but some how agents cannot seem to do the same on the United States-Mexico? Maybe Quaid and his wife should have crossed the Southern border instead.
Hispanic Woman Absolutely Goes GAGA Over Donald Trump in Las Vegas, NV … “I’m Hispanic and I Vote for Mr. Trump … We Love You!!!” (VIDEO)
MAYBE THE DONALD HAS THE HISPANIC VOTE AFTER ALL …
Check out the VIDEO below from GOP Presidential contender Donald Trump’s recent visit to Las Vegas where a rather interesting thing happened. Trump had a woman in the audience, 35 year old Myriam Witcher, come up on stage who was holding the People magazine edition that he was talking about and the rest is marketing history. Once on stage the women who said she was from Columbia yelled the words … “I’m Hispanic and I vote for Mr. Trump. We vote for Mr. Trump. YES, Mr. Trump, We Love You!!!”
When was the last time you saw any excitement like that for Hillary Clinton? If this was not a planned event, Trump’s handlers must have skipped a heartbeat. However, Trump claims to have never met her before. Damn, that was more risk taking than the GOP has done in the past 6 years.
The speech – which included a large dose of media bashing, the suggestion that Army Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl should have been executed for leaving his post in Afghanistan and the claim that he was behind Rep. Kevin McCarthy’s decision to drop out of the race for House speaker – was punctuated by shouts of support from the crowd.
At one point, in a moment that appeared to be impromptu, Trump brought a supporter in the audience to the stage who declared she is Hispanic and voting for Trump. Myriam Witcher, 35, of Las Vegas, waved an issue of People magazine with Trump and his family on its cover, asking him to sign it.
Afterward the Colombian immigrant, who noted she came to the United States legally, called Trump her “No. 1 person in the United States.”
WHAT A SAD STATE OF AFFAIRS, THANKS BARACK OBAMA, DEMOCRATS AND YOU TOO GOP LEADERSHIP …
According to a recent Bloomberg poll, 72% of Americans believe that the United States of America has lost its greatness. This is the theme of GOP presidential candidate front-runner like Donald Trump and other political outsiders like Ben Carson and Carly Fiorina. Americans are fed up with the direction that the leadership of both parties. But as the Bloomberg article is written, the reason “We the People” are fed up with politics, suspect the wealthy are getting an unfair edge, and think the country is going in the wrong direction. Sorry, that is only part of it. For if that were true, why would Americans be trowing their support behind business men and women like Trump and Fiorina who would fall into that class of privileged people? However, it is the three outside the Beltway, non-political candidates that are leading the pack of GOP presidential candidates in most all polls. People want change and they are fed up; however, note to Americans, you cannot just bitch and moan, you must actively do something about it.
Network: I’m mad as Hell and I’m not going to take this anymore!!!
Americans are “fed up” with politics, suspect the wealthy are getting an unfair edge, and think the country is going in the wrong direction, according to a new Bloomberg Politics poll that lays bare the depth and breadth of the discontents propelling outsider candidates in the Republican presidential field.
The survey shows that 72 percent of Americans think their country isn’t as great as it once was—a central theme of front-runner Donald Trump’s campaign. More than a third prefer a presidential candidate without experience in public office.
Three of the four candidates leading the Republican field fit that description: Trump, the first choice of 21 percent of registered Republicans and voters who say they lean that way, followed by neurosurgeon Ben Carson with 16 percent, former Florida Governor Jeb Bush with 13 percent, and former Hewlett-Packard CEO Carly Fiorina with 11 percent.
EXIT QUESTION: We the People, its up to you whether you want America’s greatness back. No one is going to give it to you, it has to be taken. You do so by voting in the correct people into office and throwing out ones that have no business being there. Especially, the establishment candidates of both parties who are just there to go along to get along. This is supposed to be a government of, by and for the People. It was We the People who elected Barack Obama, not once but twice, and it was We the People who voted in establishment GOP candidates when you had the opportunity to send a message. Yes, I am calling you out Tennessee. Thank you so much for gibe us the likes of Corker and Alexander. How the hell a blood red Republican state could send two mushy middle, RINO’s to the US Senate is beyond me. And that hold true for the rest of the states where you had the opportunity to elect a candidate that would be different and actually uphold Republican ideals, principles and the platform. Not just get elected to stay in power.
AMERICA … TAKE YOUR COUNTRY BACK AND MAKE IT GREAT AGAIN .. ONLY YOU CAN!!!
22 Year Old One America News Host Tomi Lahren Tells Obama to “Be A Leader” Following the Death of 4 Marines & One Sailor in Chatanooga, TN
FINAL THOUGHTS FROM LAHREN …
What, you don’t know who Tomi Lahren is? You will after you watch the below VIDEO. The 22 year old has finally said what most Americans have thought and feel. She rips into Obama and the political hacks in Washington, DC and their failed startegy.Talk about being ‘On Pont’ … “‘I’ve had it with this failed strategy – this half-way, half-baked, tip-toe, be-friendly-to-Jihadis mentality pushed by this administration. Be a leader!”
“This won’t take long, but it’s important,” she said at the outset of her monologue. “Four United States Marines are now dead. Climate change didn’t kill them. Lack of free community college did not kill them. The income gap, wage inequality — nope, not those things either. Gay marriage? Nope. Oh, white racism? Not that either. So what did? President Obama, if you won’t say it, I will: radical Islam.”

HOW AWESOME IS THIS … THE BLUE ANGLES BUZZ THE BEACH.
If you have never seen the Blue Angles live and in person, I strongly suggest you put it on your bucket list, you will not be disappointed. And you wondered why the tower did not give Maverick permission for a fly by and buzz the tower. The power of these aircraft are simply unbelievable and need to be seen up close and personal to truly appreciate. ENJOY, THE FOLKS ON THE BEACH DID!
During an air show in Pensacola, Fla., on Saturday the Navy’s Blue Angels performed a flyover of the beach that was close enough to blow beach umbrellas out of the sand and into the sky.
The maneuver was performed by Blue Angel No. 5, a F/A-18 Hornet flown by Lt. Cmdr. Mark Tedrow. Tedrow is a Pennsylvania native who has been with the Blue Angels since September 2011, according to his biography on their site. He has 2,200 flight hours and 212 carrier-arrested landings. He has also earned the Strike Flight Air Medal as well as the Navy and Marine Corps Achievement Medal
THIS IS WHAT IS WRONG WITH THE IRS, THEY FEAR NO ONE, EVERYONE FEARS THEM AND THEY ARE ABOVE THE LAW.
Okay America, just try on your own defying a court order and not handing over documents to the IRS that you have been compelled to do so and see what happens. That is exactly what the IRS is doing. As reported at FOX Business, the IRS is ignoring a court-imposed deadline to turn over newly found Lois Lerner email documents essential to investigations of the IRS tax-exempt scandal. According to Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton, they have received no emails and the deadline has passed. The IRS continues to drag their feet because no one has has kept their feet to the fire and punished anyone. Poeple should be going to jail, not just being fired or resigning.
This is what happens when a government agency is above the law. I am pretty certain Our Founding Fathers never intended for any such agency to ever have this type of power against ‘We the People”.
The Internal Revenue Service is ignoring a court-imposed deadline to turn over newly found Lois Lerner email documents essential to investigations of the IRS tax-exempt scandal.
U.S. District Court Judge Emmet Sullivan last week ordered the agency to turn over 1,800 new emails from Lerner, who ran the tax exempt unit which decided which organizations could receive tax exempt status. The government watchdog group Judicial Watch has sought the emails in a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request. Monday, a spokesperson told FOXBusiness.com that the group would not oppose the IRS producing something this Wednesday and every 2 weeks thereafter, assuming the Court agrees. At the time of publication there was no word from the IRS on this development or an amended order from the court.
So why does the Internal Revenue Service not hand over the emails as they have been ordered by a court to do … its not like they have anything to hide. Um, like maybe some of the docs implicating the Justice Department in IRS Conservative-targeting scandal. Never!
