Memory Lane: Somali Refugee Planned to Bomb Oregon Christmas Tree Lighting Ceremony

Editor:  Sorry I have been remiss in getting things posted here at ‘Frauds and Crooks’ this last week, but the issue of the President’s initiative to slow the flow of refugees to America has really heated up and I’ve been buried under breaking news at Refugee Resettlement Watch.  

Thanks to all of you who have e-mailed with stories for ‘Frauds and Crooks’ that I’ve been forced to ignore for now (not enough hours in my day!).  I’ll try to do better in the days ahead!

I don’t know how many of you are interested in refugee issues, but there is no shortage of refugee criminals and terrorist wannabees that are ignored by the refugee industry working against the President.

Because the FBI foiled a 2010 plot to bomb Portland’s Christmas tree lighting ceremony, these Americans enjoyed the festive event.

One such story (completely swept under the rug) is from 2010.

(Thank goodness RRW was recovered after the speech police got it removed from the internet so I can find the older stories like this one.)

Speaking of that, go here to see that I was on a panel on big tech censorship in October to explain what happened to me.

This morning the ‘Religious Left’ got me particularly fired up as they have written to 15 governors and imply refugees are pure as the driven snow—no crooks, no criminals, no murderers and no terrorists, they suggest with their cleverly-worded letter.

See that post here.

And, since it’s the Christmas season I thought readers might be interested in revisiting one of the terrorism stories the Leftwing ‘Christians’ clamoring for more Africans, Asians and Middle Easterners have carefully swept under the rug.

From Oregon Live in 2010:

FBI thwarts terrorist bombing attempt at Portland holiday tree lighting, authorities say

The FBI thwarted an attempted terrorist bombing in Portland’s Pioneer Courthouse Square before the city’s annual tree-lighting Friday night, according to the U.S. Attorney’s Office in Oregon.

Mohamed Osman Mohamud is a refugee (you raised to adulthood with your tax dollars) who told an FBI undercover operative that it was a “sin” for him and his family to live in the US. So he figured he might blow up some Americans as a jihadist? https://www.kunc.org/post/alleged-christmas-tree-bomber-thought-living-us-was-sin#stream/0

A Corvallis man, thinking he was going to ignite a bomb, drove a van to the corner of the square at Southwest Yamhill Street and Sixth Avenue and attempted to detonate it.

However, the supposed explosive was a dummy that FBI operatives supplied to him.

[….]

Mohamed Osman Mohamud,19, a Somali-born U.S. citizen, was arrested at 5:42 p.m., 18 minutes before the tree lighting was to occur, on an accusation of attempting to use a weapon of mass destruction. The felony charge carries a maximum sentence of life in prison and a $250,000 fine.

The arrest was the culmination of a long-term undercover operation, during which Mohamud had been monitored for months as his alleged bomb plot developed.

More here.

See one of many posts on Mohamud at RRW.  He was a refugee, but apparently for the Lefty Christians an attempt at an Islamic terrorist attack doesn’t count.

KATE BROWN: 1ST OPENLY LGBT AMERICAN ELECTED GOVERNOR (OREGON) http://www.leizey.com/blog/2016/11/12/seven-times-women-cracked-the-glass-ceiling-this-week

And, for a chuckle, see that Oregon’s Governor Kate Brown is planning to tell the President that Oregon will take more Somalis.

She didn’t say Somalis, but she can’t choose which religious or ethnic groups Oregon taxpayers will ‘welcome.’

She has not yet transmitted her official letter to the US State Department.

Shame on You if You Don’t Take 15 Minutes to Do This!

Texas: Their Mothers Were Murdered!

Imagine thinking that your elderly mother died of natural causes in an assisted living facility where you thought she was safe and well-cared-for only to receive a call two years later from the police telling you she didn’t die peacefully, but was likely murdered by Billy Chemirmir, a man who should have been removed from the US years before!

This is an update on my series of posts about the man I simply call the Kenyan Killer.

And, this is a story the national news is not touching! 

Imagine the pain of knowing that this is the last face your dear mother saw on this earth.

As we left off back in July the Kenyan Killer was behind bars in Texas awaiting trial for the murder of the last in a string of murders (more under investigation) that could make him the most prolific serial killer in Texas.

Why did these vulnerable senior women and one elderly gentleman die?  He wanted to steal their valuables, especially their jewelry.

Most were allegedly suffocated to death with a pillow.  He was a clever killer.

Reporter Charles Scudder at The Dallas Morning News has penned a two-part series on the case featuring some of the daughters who today suffer from enormous grief and anger over the deaths of their mothers—many of whom might not have died if the police and medical examiners had been sharp enough to see a pattern that might have emerged if, at least in some cases, the assisted living facilities had not been quick to assume death by natural causes.

The tip-off to some family members that something didn’t add-up was that their mothers’ jewelry was missing—one guardian angel necklace in particular.

The fabulous two-part series is behind a paywall.  It is an important paywall because it funds indepth journalism like this story.  Part 1 is here and Part II here

The two part series is entitled:

Guardians

Nearly two years after her mother died in a Dallas senior living apartment, Shannon Gleason Dion got a shocking call from a Plano
detective.

Her mother had likely been murdered, he told her, by a man who could be among the most prolific serial killers in Texas history.

Here is a bit of how reporter Scudder sets the scene in his opening paragraphs of Part II.  Shannon got that call:

Her 92-year-old mother, Doris Gleason, had died nearly two years earlier at The Tradition-Prestonwood, a luxury senior living facility in Far North Dallas. “Old age,” the death certificate had said.

No one could explain why jewelry was missing from the apartment. No one knew why Doris wasn’t wearing the guardian angel necklace she never took off. But Shannon had done her own sleuthing.

She’d learned that jewelry had been stolen from the apartments of other residents who had died.

Scudder’s story is riveting….

Wanting something good to come out of their suffering, five daughters have launched a new group!

 

 

SOSS stands for Secure our Senior’s Safety

And, this is what they say about their initiative:

Some of us are wives. Some of us are mothers and grandmothers. Some of us are sisters.

​We were daughters.

​Now we are friends. Joined together by a shared tragedy.

​We lost our mothers to a knock on a door.

To repeat – a knock on a door. He shouldn’t have been able to walk down their hall and knock on their door.

​We thought they were safe. We paid for oversight. We thought they were safe. They were not.

We are daughters who have lost their mothers. We are working so you don’t have to live our tragedy. We don’t want this to happen to another family.

Many of us have been in the situation of having to place a loved one in a care facility, and if you haven’t,  then you may very well be burdened with that decision in the future.

Therefore, if you do nothing else today, visit their website and if you feel moved to do so, donate to help them get their message out widely.

Where is the national news media?

Their story must get out nationally, please send to your social media networks and if you have any contacts with any national news outlet, please send it there too!

For more information either go to The Dallas Morning News (and pay if you can).

For more background, here below are my posts from earlier this year.  (I had a formatting problem, but the links work—click on the title!)

Jihad? Saudi National Goes on Murder Spree at Florida Naval Base

Surely you’ve seen the news, but what interested me most this morning is that the usual major news sources, even Fox News, have very few details.  So, why is it that we have to go to the UK Daily Mail (again!) to get more.

And, I want to know who the victims are!  Some of our finest young men and women?

Six Saudis are arrested over Pensacola naval base shooting including three who FILMED the attack by countryman who killed three and wounded eight before being shot dead – as FBI probes terror link

The Daily Mail generally includes a very handy list of bullet points like these!

~Shooting took place on base early Friday morning, sparking a lockdown

~Sources identified the suspected gunman as Saudi Air Force aviation student Mohammed Saeed Alshamrani

~As of Friday evening, six Saudi nationals have been detained for questioning
It’s reported that three of them filmed the shooting as it happened

~Rep Matt Gaetz, a Republican representing Pensacola, called the shooting ‘an act of terrorism’

~President Trump tweeted that King Salman told him ‘the Saudi people are greatly angered by the barbaric actions of the shooter…’

~Three other people were shot and killed during incident inside classroom building on base

Read the whole story, but here are a few additional snips, plus a photo the Daily Mail says is the shooter.

In recent weeks, 18 naval aviators and two aircrew members from the Royal Saudi Naval Forces were training with the US Navy, including at Pensacola, according to a November 15 press release from the Navy. It was not clear if the suspected shooter was part of that delegation.

The delegation came under a Navy program that offers training to US allies, known as the Naval Education and Training Security Assistance Field Activity.

A person familiar with the program said that Saudi Air Force officers selected for military training in the United States are intensely vetted by both countries.  [We are so stupid, they are skilled liars!—ed]

Amazing how we didn’t learn anything from 911.  We don’t need to invite any Saudis to America, let alone to train them to fly.

And, for goodness sake, this attack happened on a Navy base, but it required local police to take out the shooter.  Why aren’t there armed Navy men and women protecting the base? (While dreadful people like Mohammed obviously carry guns on base!)

All US Counties are in Play as Refugee Resettlement Sites! Do you care?

https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/1621579719/ref=dbs_a_def_rwt_bibl_vppi_i0

Yesterday Michelle Malkin penned an excellent piece published here at TownHall about an opportunity that President Donald Trump has given all of you—your city/county elected government must approve in writing if yours will be a community that will take on the financial burden of hosting more poverty from the third world.

(Your governor must also approve resettlement in writing. See a side bar at RRW with a list of seven governors who have already indicated that their state is open for MORE refugees.)

For nearly 40 years all decisions about resettlement sites were made at the US State Department and driven by nine unelected refugee resettlement contractors*** with no consideration given to the citizens of the communities chosen.

Needless to say, those nine want to continue to be paid by federal taxpayers and continue to decide if your town is theirs to change forever.

This is a bit of what Michelle Malkin reported yesterday:

Citizen Revolt: Resist Refugee Resettlement Dumps

Should U.S. citizens have input into whether their neighborhoods are fundamentally and permanently transformed into United Nations refugee camps full of welfare dependents and tax burdens?

Government-funded charities that profit mightily from the federal refugee resettlement program say: “Hell, no!”

But President Donald Trump and growing numbers of informed Americans across the heartland are raising their voices to say: “Heavens, yes!”

This week, an extraordinary revolt took place in Bismarck, North Dakota, where an overflow crowd of residents braved subzero temperatures to register their opposition to allowing the Lutheran Social Services to dump any new refugees in their backyard.

Thanks to an executive order signed by Trump in September, local communities now have explicit opt-in rights to stem the lucrative tide of refugees coming largely from Third World countries and jihadist breeding grounds.

Open borders legal groups are, of course, challenging the order in court. These zealots object to states and localities exercising self-determination when it comes to rejecting refugees because it would undermine “national immigration policy,” yet they promote illegal immigrant sanctuary policies in states and localities that create uncontrollable criminal anarchy.

On Monday, a large crowd showed up at a North Dakota County Commissoners meeting to oppose more resettlement in the Bismarck area. https://refugeeresettlementwatch.org/2019/12/03/north-dakota-cass-county-caves-to-lutheran-refugee-contractor-votes-for-more-refugees/

While GOP Gov. Doug Burgum signaled his support for increased importation of refugees, Brian Bitner, chairman of the Burleigh County Commission, echoed the concerns of his constituents. “North Dakota is already the highest per capita state for refugee resettlement in terms of number of citizens, so in the absence of any sort of number, there’s no way we could know the cost to the state or the county, and I simply can’t support that,” Bitner told local media at the Bismarck protest.

More here.

The President has given you all a say for the first time in nearly 40 years about whether your town/city/county will host hundreds/thousands of third world refugees entering America.

Will you take a few minutes to make your voices heard?

Please see my post today at Refugee Resettlement Watch to find out what to do.

Shame on You if You Don’t Take 15 Minutes to Do This!

My apologies to readers.  I’ve been so busy at RRW this last week or so, I haven’t been able to keep up with all of your e-mails and story ideas for ‘Frauds and Crooks,‘ but I must direct my time at the moment to helping to advance the President’s agenda on refugees.

If you are concerned about the US Refugee Admissions Program, please see RRW every day!

The Lefts’ Massive Mobilization Plans to Thwart Trump Refugee Reform Revealed

I’m being swamped with news I must post at Refugee Resettlement Watch as a critical deadline approaches for the President’s September Executive Order in which the President is seeking to give you, citizens and taxpayers, some say about refugees being placed in your towns and cities.

The President wants you to have a say in the number and placement of refugees in your states and cities. Will you help him by getting involved? He cannot do this alone!

For decades the decision to change your town’s demographic make up and to foist local and state taxpayers with the bill for arriving refugees’ care has been made from the US State Department with the ‘help’ of nine federally funded resettlement contractors.

Trump wants to change that and of course they are mobilizing to defeat him both in the courts and through grassroots organizing.

So, my time is naturally being spent at RRW these days.

I urge you to visit this morning’s posts here and here.

That second post is especially important because I have published the Refugee Council USA’s “toolkit” the contractors are using to mobilize their people during the first weeks of December.  You can use it too!

When I began writing ‘Frauds and Crook’s’  back in January my aim was to balance the news.

The mainstream media publishes ten mushy emotion-packed stories about immigrants to every one where the immigrant/refugee is a fraud, crook or criminal.  I wanted to point out that for every immigrant that goes to Harvard, a dozen more are criminals.

So the stories I’ve posted are often shocking (or fun to read), but the bottomline at this point in time, is that Trump cannot do this alone and you need to do more than whatever you have been doing to tell your local elected officials (and governors) what you think about MORE refugees being placed in your communities.

Turn off the impeachment news and….

Go here and follow the Left’s blueprint for action!  You only have until the week before Christmas to get it done!

The President’s Executive Order might not be perfect, but the Open Borders agitators are using it to demonstrate their power, so you need to be punching back by demanding that you have a say about whether you want your community changed forever!

Endnote:  See if you are already near an existing refugee resettlement site.  They can place refugees within a hundred miles of the site!
