Malaysian Native Guilty of Installing Camera in Airplane Bathroom

Traveling this Labor Day weekend?  Keep an eye out for hidden cameras!

I liked it so much that my headline is the same one the US Justice Department used on its press release on Tuesday.

I’m enjoying the fact that the Justice Department is getting right to the point these days and telling us if the perp is a foreign national and not saying something like: ‘Houston man pleads guilty.’

(And, in case you are wondering, Malaysia is a majority Muslim country.)

The story reminded me of my posts earlier in the year about what is now being called “video voyeurism” where a ‘new American’ was caught by an eagle-eyed teen filming women in dressing rooms in Virginia malls, see those Mumtaz Rauf posts here.

ABC-13 in Houston has good coverage of this latest story,

Halliburton employee pleads guilty to hiding camera in United first class bathroom

 

HOUSTON, Texas (KTRK) — A Houston man who works for Halliburton has pleaded guilty to voyeurism after planting a camera inside an airplane bathroom and using it to record women.

Choon Ping Lee was charged with video voyeurism within the special maritime and territorial jurisdiction of the United States.

Lee was sentenced to two months in prison and a $6,000 fine.

The incident happened May 5 on United Airlines flight 646 from San Diego to Houston.

Authorities say a first class passenger, who is also from Houston, told them she went to the bathroom at one point during the flight and noticed a device with a blue blinking light.

She claimed it was near the cabinet and wall area, close to a door hinge. The device was loosely hanging, but she said she wasn’t sure if it was part of the plane.

The passenger grabbed it with a paper towel, walked out of the bathroom and gave it to the flight crew.

According to court documents, once they arrived in Houston, the crew gave the item to George Bush Intercontinental Airport United Airlines Corporate Security.

Not only was Lee apparently a sicko, he was dumb as he shot footage of himself installing the camera!

Security, who confirmed it was a video recording device, watched the footage and saw a man installing the device in the bathroom in first class on that same flight.

Officials say they couldn’t see the man’s face, but he wore clothing and jewelry with distinct details. He wore a watch on his left hand and a small bracelet on his right wrist.

He had on a blue, short-sleeved shirt with the letters “NJC” on the back and loosely fitted jeans. He also wore black tennis shoes with black leather on top near the black laces and white trim on the bottom of the shoes.

FBI San Diego had video footage of all the passengers boarding United Airlines Flight 646. A man wearing the same clothing as the person seen in the bathroom video was spotted in the San Diego boarding area. He also wore glasses and carried a black backpack.

Video showed the man, wearing the same distinct clothing, leaving the plane after it landed in Houston.

Houston police then used video footage of the man walking through Bush Airport to help track him down.

He was identified as Lee, a Malaysian citizen. United Airlines Corporate Security confirmed Lee sat in first class on the flight.

FBI Houston recovered deleted files on the device showing another airplane bathroom where at least two women were caught on camera. Authorities discovered that the files were from an Emirates flight, and one of the victims was wearing an Emirates flight crew uniform.

Court papers show the FBI contacted Halliburton, who provided them with Lee’s travel information and that he flew on Emirates for work.

Halliburton also shared a real time photo of Lee walking down the hallway at his job site. He was wearing the watch and bracelet that matched the jewelry seen on camera on the United Airlines flight on May 5.

There is a discussion about how ‘popular’ this practice is becoming, then this,

“They can be as small as a pinhole size, hidden in a ceiling, in a coffee mug,” said Natalia Avila from Central Spy Shop.

In fact, Central Spy Shop has even heard of cases where the cameras were found on cruise ships and airbnbs.

“They could be hidden in smoke detectors, air purifiers,” said Avila.

That’s where hidden camera detectors come in. The devices use a red light to detect a camera lens and it also picks up Wi-Fi.

Are we all going to have to run out and purchase hidden camera detectors?  Yikes!

Lee was fined $6,000, will go to jail for two months and will most likely be removed from the country according to the Justice Department.

Virginia: Woman Arrested for Destroying American Flags in Several Neighborhoods

This is a story about a likely ‘new American,’ of course not on the scale of the horrific story yesterday just a few miles away in Washington, DC where an Ethiopian former refugee knifed a young woman to death for no apparent reason.

But, it is worth mentioning.

Thanks to reader Cathy for sending me the press statement from the Fairfax County, Virginia police.

DETECTIVES SEEKING ADDITIONAL VICTIMS IN U.S. FLAG DESTRUCTION CASES

mugshot-arif-maria
If Arif had a political point to make she sure picked a dumb way to make it!

Mason Police District – Detectives from our Criminal Investigations Section are seeking potential additional victims after U.S. flags were destroyed in several neighborhoods in Annandale. Maria Arif, 39, of Annandale, was arrested on Aug. 26, as part of the ongoing investigation. Arif was charged with larceny, two counts of destruction of property and two counts of mutilating a U.S. flag. Arif was taken to the Fairfax County Adult Detention Center where she posted bond.

Detectives believe there may be additional victims in this case.

 

Another news account (WMAL) quotes a police spokesman.  The neighborhood was watching!

“The victims started contacting the police after a large number of flags over the course of a few days were being vandalized in the neighborhood,” Fairfax County police spokesman Trevor Steranko said. “The neighborhood had come together and pretty much identified her and when police were in the neighborhood, the community was able to point her out.”

Is Arif a Leftwinger driven to insanity by Trump derangement syndrome, or just one more genuinely insane person roaming American streets?

Washington, DC: New American Stabs Young Woman to Death in Apparent Random Attack

***Update*** Breitbart is reporting that the alleged killer came to the US as a child in a refugee family from Ethiopia. He became a US citizen a few years ago.

I’m headed out, but just want to quickly post this dreadful story (hat tip: Jim).

I’ll let you search for the details yourself (it is all over the news).

But, here is Jim Hoft’s headline at Gateway Pundit:

Ethiopian National Eliyas Aregahegne Stabs to Death Random White Girl Walking Her Dog in DC

Of course none of the major media is reporting anything about his status as a ‘new American’ from Ethiopia.

Margery and the monster
Margery and the monster…..

But here is more information at Heavy.com about the evil creep.  On social media he described himself as Ethiopian.  Note (when you read the Heavy story) that he was an Obama and Hillary supporter.

Eliyas Aregahegne: 5 Fast Facts You Need to Know

Eliyas Aregahegne, the suspect accused in the random stabbing of a Washington D.C. dog walker who was interning in the city, described himself as a once promising college student and scholarship winner.

That all changed, police say, on August 27, 2019; they accuse him of repeatedly stabbing a stranger to death on the street in a vicious random attack. The victim was named as Margery Magill, 27, of Northwest, D.C. Police wrote that, on August 28, 2109, Eliyas Aregahegne, 24, of Northwest, D.C., was “arrested and charged with first degree murder while armed.”

“It’s absolutely tragic. I still can’t wrap my head around it,” Magill’s sister, Raeann Magill, told News4. “You know, out walking a dog and to be attacked like that. How can anyone even fathom that? I mean, it’s truly tragic and I even think to myself, why her?” Police say they don’t know.

[….]

Eliyas Aregahegne wrote on Facebook that he was single, lived in Washington D.C.,and was a “POSSE Scholar UW-Madison.” He also wrote that he was from Washington D.C. On Instagram, Aregahegne wrote, “18 y/o, Aries🐏. Ethiopian.UW-Madison Class of 2017.” Heavy contacted the UW-Madison PR office and learned that Aregahegne was briefly a student at Madison but not in 2017 as he wrote.

It makes me sick!

African immigrant kills white woman—how many times lately have we reported that story!

Mark my words, but by tomorrow or the next day the story will be forgotten because once again the horrific news runs counter to what the PC media want you to believe which is that they are all here for a better life!

When Counties Become More Diverse, Republicans Lose

“Mass immigration is swamping the GOP base. Tens of millions of immigrants who vote Democratic, once they are naturalized and registered, have come and are coming to America.”

(Pat Buchanan in 2006)

It is true!

Buchanan state of emergency

And, once again we hear the statistics that confirm that immigrants (‘new Americans’) choose Democrats over Republicans when they get a chance to vote.

Forget the humanitarian mumbo-jumbo from the Open Borders agitators.  This is all about changing America by changing the people.

Simply ‘new Americans’ want their government-funded social services and that is what the Dems promise them.

Republican suicide?

Yup! That is what every Republican who supports more immigration is doing—killing the Republican party.

Here is John Binder at Breitbart (hat tip: Julia),

Analysis: Increasingly Diverse U.S. Counties Quickly Turn Democrat

The more counties across the United States become diverse, the more quickly Democrat-majority they become, new analysis reveals.

The latest Pew Research Center study, as Breitbart News reported, finds that about 109 U.S. counties across 22 states that were once majority white in 2000 became majority-minority in 2018. Today, there are roughly 293 majority-minority U.S. counties, concentrated mostly along the coasts in states such as California, Florida, Texas, Virginia, North Carolina, Louisiana, Alabama, and Mississippi.

Analysis conducted by One America News Network’s (OAN) Ryan Girdusky reveals that the overwhelming majority of these increasingly diverse 109 U.S. counties also became more and more Democrat over less than two decades.

“The big takeaway is this: Republicans were losing ground because of mass immigration long before Trump. The Republican vote declined in 81 of the 109 counties,” Girdusky wrote in his weekly newsletter of the analysis. “Formerly safe Republican districts in places like Georgia, especially, that went for George W. Bush by huge majorities in 2000 were lost by John McCain and Mitt Romney.”

Somali National, Others, Arrested in Brazil for Trafficking Africans and Middle Easterners to US Border

Of course I still want to know how all the poor Africans found the money to get them to Brazil in the first place!

 

The US Justice Department made the announcement of the arrests here earlier this month.

International Law Enforcement Cooperation Leads to Brazilian Takedown of Significant Human Smugglers

Brazil Federal Police

Earlier today, extensive coordination and cooperation efforts between United States and Brazilian law enforcement and prosecution authorities culminated in the Brazil Federal Police (DPF) conducting a significant enforcement operation to disrupt and dismantle a transnational criminal organization.

The human smuggling organization targeted is alleged to be responsible for the illicit smuggling of scores of individuals from East Africa and the Middle East, into Brazil, and ultimately to the United States. The enforcement operation included the execution of multiple search warrants and the arrests of three prolific, Brazil-based human smugglers on Brazilian charges: Abdifatah Hussein Ahmed (a Somalian national); Abdessalem Martani (an Algerian national); and Mohsen Khademi Manesh (an Iranian national).

“We commend today’s efforts by our Brazilian counterparts to take decisive action under their recently enacted human smuggling laws against criminal networks that threaten the national security of Brazil, the United States and other nations,” said Assistant Attorney General Brian A. Benczkowski of the Justice Department’s Criminal Division. “Such collaborative efforts with our foreign law enforcement partners show our collective resolve to hold international human smugglers to account to the fullest extent of the law.”

Assistance provided by U.S. authorities was coordinated under the Extraterritorial Criminal Travel Strike Force (ECT) program, a joint partnership between the Justice Department, Criminal Division’s Human Rights and Special Prosecutions Section (HRSP) and U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement’s Homeland Security Investigations (HSI).The ECT program focuses on human smuggling networks that may present particular national security or public safety risks, or present grave humanitarian concerns. ECT has dedicated investigative, intelligence and prosecutorial resources. ECT coordinates and receives assistance from other U.S. government agencies and foreign law enforcement authorities.

The Center for Immigration Studies has more on this, see here.

Maybe the Prez is already doing it, but he should be trumpeting news like this at rallies and on Twitter.

The average American has no idea that his Administration is making some headway in the area of law enforcement—whether that involves the opioid crisis as I reported yesterday here, or big Medicare, Medicaid and Food stamp fraud busts that I’ve been reporting on regularly here at Frauds and Crooks.

Charleston, WV: Syrian Doctor Pleads Guilty in Illegal Distribution of Pain Meds Investigation

“A drug dealer in a lab coat is still just a drug dealer!”

(United States Attorney Mike Stuart)

Ho hum! you might be saying, another foreign doctor destroying Americans with drugs! What else is new?

But this case, reported by the US Justice Department on Saturday, caught my attention immediately.

The first thing I did was try to find out if the drug dealer is Syrian and after a little searching I found a reference to his Syrian passport.  

Why was that so interesting you ask?

Well, it’s because it was the Syrian ‘community’ in Charleston that was pushing for West Virginia (specifically Charleston) to become a Syrian refugee resettlement site back toward the end of the Obama Administration.  I even heard a rumor that Syrian doctors were making generous contributions to local Congressmen (maybe other pols too!) to gain their support for refugee resettlement.

First here is the rather unusual press release from the US Justice Department this week:

Charleston Doctor Pleads Guilty to Illegal Distribution of Methadone

Nasher
Muhammed Samer Nasher-Alneam

CHARLESTON, W.Va. – A Charleston doctor who practiced at Neurology & Pain Center, PLLC pled guilty to illegal distribution of controlled substances that were not for legitimate medical purposes, announced United States Attorney Mike Stuart. Muhammed Samer Nasher-Alneam admitted to writing prescriptions in July 2014 for oxycodone and methadone pills that were not within the bounds of professional medical practice or for legitimate medical purposes. Pursuant to his guilty plea, Nasher agreed to permanently surrender both his medical license and DEA registration. He further agreed to never seek reinstatement of a license to practice as a medical doctor in any other state.

Now check out the next paragraph.  Normally these press releases are written in a boring style.  It is rare to see such enthusiasm!  Cut the head of the snake!

“Nasher is now an admitted felon and faces up to ten years – TEN YEARS- in a federal prison. A drug dealer in a lab coat is still just a drug dealer,” said United States Attorney Mike Stuart. “Nasher will never practice medicine again. Ever. Nasher will never write another prescription. Ever. And Nasher will never treat another patient. Ever. We’re cracking down hard across the board – medical professionals, doctors, pharmacists, street dealers and traffickers – in a multi-pronged aggressive approach intended to cut the head off the snake. Medical professionals should take note that if they abuse the prescribing privileges of their profession, and I stress that they are a privilege, my office will prosecute them to the fullest extent of the law and I will seek the maximum sentence in every case.”

Nasher was remanded to the custody of the United States Marshal pending his December 2, 2019 sentencing. Nasher has remained in custody since his arrest on July 27, 2018 – 393 days – as a result of the United States moving to detain him. He faces at least 5 and up to 10 years in prison, as well as a $1 million fine at sentencing. As part of his plea agreement, Nasher agreed to forfeit $149,480.75 in United States Currency and an Acura RDX Sport Utility Vehicle.

More here.

Now here is a news story from WSAZ Charleston from nearly a year ago which tells us a bit more about Nasher and his Syrian roots:

UPDATE: Doctor facing 22 charges in new indictment

The order of detention states that Nasher-Alneam’s mom and five brothers live in Turkey — a place the suspect has visited. It also states Nasher-Alneam has traveled outside of the United States (to United Arab Emirates, Saudi Arabia, Mexico and Malaysia) several times for various reasons.

Court documents say Nasher-Alneam delivered his U.S. passport to his attorney, “but there are some questions concerning the location and validity of his Syrian Passport that was not revealed to the probation officer during his initial interview.In addition, the defendant was not forthright and truthful to the probation officer concerning his ownership of various properties and financial assets.”

I’m guessing a legitimate fear of him skipping the country is why he has been in custody for nearly a year.

And, I’ll bet there is a lot more to this story than we are being told!

Rep. Ilhan Omar Described as Homewrecker for Affair with Democrat Strategist

Such a quality person Minnesota sent to Washington!

And, what an example she is setting for the first Somali in Congress!

As if her marital situation(s) aren’t already complex enough, the news that Minnesota Rep. Ilhan Omar (see all of my previous posts) has been carrying on an affair with a man she employs has made the mainstream news after months of speculation.

What helped the rumor mill get confirmation of the tryst were the divorce papers filed by the jilted wife of Democrat consultant Tim Mynett.

Screenshot (1086).png
Question: Is Tim Mynett a Muslim, if not will he convert?

 

Here Fox News gives us the bare bones story,

DC consultant’s alleged affair with Ilhan Omar is front and center in divorce papers

 

The wife of a prominent Washington political consultant has filed for divorce, claiming her husband made a “devastating and shocking” revelation that he was having an affair with freshman Rep. Ilhan Omar, D-Minn.

Beth Mynett, 55, submitted divorce papers in Washington, D.C., Superior Court on Tuesday, saying her husband, Tim Mynett, 38, informed her earlier this year that he was having an affair with Omar.

“The parties physically separated on or about April 7, 2019, when Defendant told Plaintiff that he was romantically involved with and in love with another woman, Ilhan Omar, who serves as a U.S. representative from Minnesota,” read the filing, obtained by Fox News.

The filing continued: “Although devastated by the betrayal and deceit that preceded his abrupt declaration, Plaintiff told Defendant that she loved him and was willing to fight for the marriage. Defendant, however, told her that was not an option for him.”

The couple lived together for six years before getting married in 2012. They have a 13-year-old son.

“It is clear to Plaintiff that her marriage to Defendant is over and that there is no hope of reconciliation,” the filing stated.

The news of the divorce filing, first seen in the New York Post, comes just over a month after it was reported that Omar had separated from her husband and father of her three children, Ahmed Hirsi, and moved into a luxury penthouse in Minneapolis.

Omar’s campaign has paid Tim Mynett’s E. Street group around $230,000 for fundraising consulting, digital communications, Internet advertising and travel expenses since 2018, records showed. The 37-year-old congresswoman was spotted back in March with Mynett at a California restaurant.

International attention! There are more details in this report at Globe Intel:

Beth Jordan Accuses Ilhan Omar of Stealing her Husband

 

beth-jordan-mynett-tim-mynett-8
Happier times (before Ilhan came along)!

Dr. Beth Jordan Mynett is an American physician and the Medical Director of the DC Department of Corrections.

She is the former wife of Tim Mynett – a political consultant who she has accused of being in a relationship with Somali-born US representative, Ilhan Omar.

[….]

She has a 20 years experience as a Clinician and Administrator, including in both urgent care and emergency room treatment and previously served as the Medical Director for the National Association for Reproductive Health. She is recognized as an expert in Women’s Reproductive Rights. In 2013 she joined the DC Department of Corrections as the agency’s new Medical Director.

[….]

Beth filed for divorce from her husband and is seeking custody of their 13-year-old son, child support, full control of their DC home and legal fees to be paid.She also argued in court documents that she doesn’t trust her estranged husband’s judgment with their son — in part because of his relationship with Omar.

“By way of example, days prior to Defendant’s devastating and shocking declaration of love for Rep. Omar and admission of their affair, he and Rep. Omar took the parties’ son to dinner in order to formally meet for the first time at the family’s favorite neighborhood restaurant while Plaintiff was out of town. Rep. Omar gave the parties’ son a gift and the Defendant later brought her back inside the family’s home.”

In the court documents, she also added that the most concerning thing about the jaunt was her hubby’s decision to “put his son in harm’s way” by taking him out in public with Omar, “who at that time garnered a plethora of media attention along with death threats.”

Let me say (with all sincerity) thank you Minnesota for sending Ilhan Omar to Washington as the first Somali to represent the Somali refugee community for the entire nation to see!

I’m wondering if her good friends at CAIR have anything to say?
