SPECIAL ANNOUNCEMENT: Homeland Security Issues U.S. TERROR ALERT [VIDEO]
While illegal immigration has dropped precipitously due to President Trump’s stance on it, terrorism threats have increased. DHS and the FBI are actively investigating terrorist threats in all 50 states. There have been 37 ISIS-connected plots in the US since 2013. Those are the ones we know about. They are coming across our open borders and through the refugee resettlement program. And although John Kelly says we don’t know their intentions, I believe we do. Jihad and the killing of infidels whenever and wherever possible.
No wonder Kelly says this keeps him up at night. It should worry all of us. In the past year alone, there have been “36 homegrown terrorist cases in 18 states.” General Kelly is speaking the truth… I’m sure he views the shooting in Fresno, California yesterday as terrorism. I know I do. “We’ve seen an unprecedented spike in homegrown terrorism,” Kelly disclosed. “These are the cases we know about—homegrown terrorism is notoriously difficult to predict and control.” Kelly says that terrorists in the US are plotting terrorist attacks every single day.
From the Washington Free Beacon:
Federal authorities have open investigations into radical Islamic terrorists in all 50 states, according to the Department of Homeland Security, which is warning that the threat of terrorism in the United States has reached an all time high with radicalized individuals in the country plotting to strike “each and every single day.”
The FBI has “open terrorist investigations in all 50 states,” according to DHS Secretary John Kelly, who disclosed on Tuesday that there have been at least 37 “ISIS-linked plots to attack our country” since 2013, a number that shows no signs of diminishing.
Kelly, in his first wide-ranging public address on the threat of terrorism in America since taking office, warned that America’s borders remain wide-open and that there is evidence terror-linked individuals are exploiting these national security weaknesses and entering the United States.
“We don’t know their intentions,” Kelly said during an address at George Washington University. “We don’t know why they’re here or why they’re coming. We are completely blind to what they’re capable of.”
“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 said. And that is terrifying. The United States, he continued, is “under attack” from a wide variety of bad actors, including “failed states, cyber-terrorists, vicious smugglers, and sadistic radicals.” He says the threats are relentless. And they only have to get really lucky once. Just once.
“This is all bad news, but it gets much worse,” he explained. “Experts estimate that perhaps 10,000 citizens of Europe have joined the caliphate in Syria and Iraq. Thousands more are from nations in Asia, Africa and the Western Hemisphere. They have learned how to make IEDs, employ drones to drop ordnance, and acquired experience on the battlefield that by all reports they are bringing back home.” These highly trained Jihadists are likely to return to their countries of origin and “wreak murderous havoc” across Europe, Asia and the United States, among other countries.
We are not vetting those that come in and therefore don’t know how many are actually ISIS fighters. The threat today is every bit as great as it was on 9/11 and that is just unfathomable. “We are under attack from terrorists both within and outside of our borders,” he said. “They are without conscience, and they operate without rules. They despise the United States, because we are a nation of rights, laws, and freedoms. They have a single mission, and that is our destruction.” And we better get our act together and soon to stop them.
