The Obama Administration’s Homeland Security Hypocrisy

Matthew Vadum is an award-winning investigative reporter and the author of the book, "Subversion Inc.: How Obama’s ACORN Red Shirts Are Still Terrorizing and Ripping Off American Taxpayers."


usa-obamaAfter years of working hard to comfort America’s terrorist enemies and erase U.S. borders, the nation’s perpetually embattled attorney general is suddenly concerned that Middle Eastern jihadists are working together to create undetectable explosives that could be used to blow up U.S. airliners.

Intelligence reports suggest Islamic terrorists in Yemen and Syria have joined forces to make the stealthy bombs and this development is “more frightening than anything I think I’ve seen as attorney general,” Eric Holder said on ABC’s “This Week.”

The collaboration between Islamist militants in the two Muslim countries is a “deadly combination” of those who have technical skills and “people who have this kind of fervor to give their lives in support of a cause that is directed at the United States and directed at its allies.”

“It’s something that gives us really extreme, extreme concern,” Holder said.

Holder’s comments come as the U.S.Department of Homeland Security announced it was ratcheting up security measures at international airports. Individuals will now be made to demonstrate that their electronic devices such as cellphones and laptop computers are not bombs by turning them on at security checkpoints.

Such measures are “prudent steps that are necessary to protect the flying public,” Holder said.

Yet while Holder pretends to be a responsible adult, at the same time evidence has surfaced that security measures have been all but suspended at U.S. airports for newly arrived illegal immigrants in the southern states.

Breitbart Texas reports that illegals are being allowed to board commercial airliners without valid ID. “The aliens who are getting released on their own recognizance are being allowed to board and travel commercial airliners by simply showing their Notice to Appear forms,” said Hector Garza, a spokesman for Local 2455 of the National Border Patrol Council. (NBPC is the labor union representing about 17,000 Border Patrol agents and support personnel assigned to that law enforcement organization.)

“This is not the CBP [Customs and Border Protection] or another federal agency renting or leasing an aircraft, these are the same planes that the American public uses for domestic travel,” said Garza.

This just adds insult to injury. Not only are we releasing unknown illegal aliens onto American streets, but we are allowing them to travel commercially using paperwork that could easily be reproduced or manipulated on any home computer. The Notice to Appear form has no photo, anyone can make one and manipulate one. They do not have any security features, no watermark, nothing. They are simply printed on standard copy paper based on the information the illegal alien says is the truth.

Added Garza:

We do not know who these people are, we often have to solely rely on who they say they are, where they say they came from, and the history they say they have. We know nothing about most of them, ICE releases them into the American public, and now they are boarding aircraft at will with a simple paper document that anyone can easily alter or reproduce themselves.

Central Americans are not the only people crossing our border and being released. Does anyone actually think that cartels and others criminal or possible terrorist organizations are not taking advantage of the fact that we are having to leave our border wide open while we reassigning the majority of our agents to process family units and minors? Of course this situation is being exploited by such threats.

NBPC Vice President Shawn Moran told Washington, D.C. radio station WMAL’s Larry  O’Connor yesterday that the ongoing invasion by illegal aliens is straining Border Patrol resources.

“We don’t normally have these large groups of people trying to surrender to us,” Moran said. “They are tying up officers in the field and we believe this is being orchestrated for the benefit of the drug cartels.”

The Border Patrol has caught plenty of illegal immigrants from countries that the U.S. regards as state sponsors of terrorism, he said, adding he is concerned that terrorists are “trying to fit in with the groups that we’re catching.”

Obama administration officials like Holder are now giving Oscar-worthy performances, posing as public servants deeply worried about the nation’s porous southern border. They are providing political cover for the president who has been trying ever since his January 2009 swearing-in to generate disorder at the border.

President Obama gave a green light to the current wave of illegal immigrants when he indicated he has no interest in enforcing U.S. immigration laws.

Obama has provided executive amnesty and work permits for illegal immigrants covered by the proposed “DREAM Act” that Congress has repeatedly rejected. That legislation, if enacted, would cover individuals who claim to have entered the U.S. as minors under their parents’ guidance.

The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) issued a directive in August 2013 expanding that amnesty to illegal immigrant relatives of “DREAM Act” beneficiaries. DHS issued another directive in December 2012 reinforcing the existing policy under which almost all immigration offenses were deemed unenforceable absent a separate criminal conviction.

Throughout all of this, Holder has functioned more as Obama’s consigliere than as the American people’s lawyer.

And just last week Holder met with officials in Oslo, Norway and London in an effort to get European allies to do more to stem the the possible flow of terrorists into their countries. The meetings were an opportunity to “exchange information in the way that you can’t if you’re not present” and “come up with techniques to thwart those who would try to do us all harm.”

It is unclear if the foreign dignitaries laughed in the face of Holder, who has long worked to frustrate policy initiatives aimed at making Americans safe from terrorist attacks and invasions.

Every month tens of thousands of illegal aliens, some of whom may be terrorists or part of organized crime, are now streaming unimpeded into the southern United States from Mexico. Some of these illegals are being allowed on domestic airline flights without providing proper identification. And everyone knows that in Democrat-administered regions these illegal immigrants won’t be asked for ID when they try to vote for Hillary Clinton or Elizabeth Warren for president in 2016.

After all, Holder is a poster child for “man-caused disasters,” the Obama administration’s hideous euphemism for acts of terrorism. He is the top law enforcement official serving a president who has provided military and other support to Islamic totalitarians in Libya, Egypt, and elsewhere.

Holder orchestrated or at least silently assented to the Obama administration’s Fast and Furious gun-running operation that cost Border Patrol officer Brian Terry and hundreds of Mexican nationals their lives. This Reichstag fire-like piece of political theater that provided firearms to drug cartels was designed to cause an outbreak of violence and mayhem in an effort to whip up public hysteria against the Second Amendment.

Holder himself has done more to undermine U.S. national security than just about anyone else in the Obama administration, except perhaps for Hillary Clinton, John Kerry, Janet Napolitano, and President Obama.

The ultimate political fixer, Holder has a long history of aiding, and in some cases, abetting terrorists. Like Obama, he appears to have a soft spot for bombers in particular, and also like Obama, he has become the envy of sociopaths the world over for his impressive lying and obfuscation skills.

While serving as deputy attorney general, Holder was a principal figure in the vetting of the Clinton administration’s infamous 176 last-minute clemencies in January 2001. Those benefitting from Holder’s questionable recommendations included former Weather Underground members Susan Rosenberg and Linda Evans. Rosenberg was a suspect in the deadly 1981 armed robbery of an armored car and was given a 58-year prison sentence for possessing more than 700 pounds of explosives and an arsenal of illicit weapons. Evans received 40 years for harboring a fugitive from the robbery and using false identification to purchase firearms. She also received five years in connection with eight bombings. (Note: July 18 is the first anniversary of the untimely passing of Larry Grathwohl, a Vietnam War veteran who infiltrated the Weather Underground and later provided evidence against Evans.)

Holder was also involved in President Clinton’s 1999 pardon of 16 members of FALN, Armed Forces of National Liberation—a violent terrorist organization (as designated by the FBI) that was active in the U.S. from 1974 to 1983. The Marxist-Leninist group detonated almost 130 bombs in government and corporate buildings in Chicago, New York, and the nation’s capital in a failed bid for Puerto Rican independence. FALN bombs killed six individuals — including Chile’s ambassador to the U.S. —and wounded at least 80 others. Congress subsequently condemned the acts of clemency by votes of 95-2 in the Senate and 311-41 in the House.

An enabler of Islamic terrorists, former lawyer Lynne Stewart was released from prison last year after serving only three years of a 10-year prison sentence for terrorism-related offenses. The premature return to society of Stewart, who has terminal cancer, was made possible after Holder’s Justice Department relaxed the criteria for early release on compassionate grounds.

During George W. Bush’s presidency, Holder was a partner at the Washington, D.C., law firm of Covington & Burling, which represented Islamic terrorists. At one time he condemned the terrorist detention center in Guantanamo Bay as an “international embarrassment.” As U.S. attorney general, Holder has sought to try Muslim terrorists in civilian courts instead of military tribunals and has lauded Supreme Court decisions that undermine what the previous administration called the Global War on Terror.

With policies like these, more Holder-made disasters are a dead certainty.

    Good idea. If they are terrorists they will happily turn them on and blow everybody up.

    • Gee

      Israel has required the turning on of all electronics by the passengers for over 40 years now.

    “With policies like these, more Holder-made disasters are a dead certainty.”

    With “friends” like this, who needs enemies?

    But, then again, you could say that about any Democrat. But Holder has been given a lot more authority than the average leftie.

    Muslims aren’t terrorists. They don’t murder innocent infidels in cold blood because they are cold blooded vicious murderers and terrorists. In addition, when Muslims are victorious in jihad they don’t slaughter their captives in mass because they are cold blooded vicious murderers and terrorists. They also don’t lop off the heads of infidels because they are cold blooded vicious murderers and terrorists. As a matter of fact, terrorism doesn’t have anything whatsoever to do with it

    Instead, the reason why they do all those extremely horrific things is because it is proscribed for them to do all those seemingly extreme thing per the dictates of Sharia. As a matter of fact, in the Islamic totalitarian world, as opposed to the infidel world, all those things are long held traditions and rituals and there is nothing in the least extreme about them. In fact, all of those things have been happening continuously since shortly after the Hijra in 622 AD as long held traditions and rituals.

    Now, of course, all those things are extremely horrific and extremely painful to observe for us infidels living in the infidel world, but nonetheless in the Islamic totalitarian world there isn’t anything in the least extreme or radical about any of those things. Thus, the perception so prevalent in infidel society today that Muslim terrorists are extremists and radicals that comprise only a tiny minority of the overall population like they do as well in all other societies and cultures is a very false notion.

    The actual reality instead is all Muslims in the world are jihadists in one form or another, either violent or non-violent, per the dictates of Islam, as opposed to just a tiny minority of radicals, extremists, and Islamists that resort to terrorism. Indeed, it’s not like they have a choice in the matter either, as Islam, far more than it is anything else, is an extremely rabid and draconian form of totalitarianism that seeks world domination, as opposed to being just a so-called religion. Thus, just like in the old Communist Soviet Union where all non-conformers were sent to the Soviet gulags, in Islamic totalitarian society all non-conformers are summarily executed for apostasy and blasphemy.

    Therefore, that means the millions of Muslims we have living here in America today are not peaceful and moderate people, but instead jihadists in one form or another, either violent or non-violent, exactly like all other Muslims throughout the world. As a matter of fact, infiltrating our society for eventual demographic conquest is a form of non-violent stealth and deceptive jihad that is also proscribed for them per the dictates of Sharia.

    Hence, the primary reason we still remain vulnerable today to violent jihad attacks on the homeland, such as dirty bombs being exploded in our major cities, is because we have millions of Muslim stealth and deceptive jihadists living within our midst, and the reason why we have millions of stealth and deceptive jihadists living within our midst is because our political elite, who are responsible for protecting us and for providing national security, are all PC multicultural dupes. As not being labeled a racist far outweighs protecting the American people, providing national security, and doing what is right for the America people.

    Indeed, they are all running around saying radical Islam this and radical Muslims that, but the fact of the matter is we are not at war with radical Islam and radical Muslims. Instead, we are at war with mainstream orthodox Islam and all mainstream orthodox Muslims in the world, because mainstream orthodox Islam and all mainstream orthodox Muslims in the world are waging jihad (holy war) perpetually against all infidels in the world to ultimately make Islam supreme throughout the world. Indeed, that’s the sole fundamental purpose of mainstream orthodox Islam.

    Of course, Eric Holder is a hypocrite and a buffoon. However, the problem far transcends just Eric Holder, his ilk, and our borders, as it encompasses our entire political elite and our political establishment. While I believe Eric Holder should be impeached because he is obviously very corrupt, I also believe that something also needs to be done to shake up our political elites.

      What about the Kurds? They seem to be a reasonable people, and yet, the majority of them are Muslim.

      • ObamaYoMoma

        Good question. The Kurd’s are somewhat a mystery wrapped inside an enigma for me. The majority of them, or at least the one’s with the power to control that society that I have observed, are obviously not true Muslims, and that’s why they are such an industrious society relative to the Islamic totalitarian world and also at the same time remain loyal to the infidel West, while also providing safe sanctuary for various infidels.

        In other words, they are blasphemous apostates that per the dictates of Islam must be executed, and that’s why they are being targeted by ISIS. As a blasphemous apostate in Islamic totalitarian society in essence is an infidel.

        However, I also read that there are some serious Muslims living within that society as well, but they are for the most part kept under wraps by the majority of Kurds that obviously are not true Muslims. Sort of like the Muslims living here in the USA. They are waging jihad too like ISIS, but in their case it is waged non-violently over here intentionally, because violent jihad waged over here in the USA would not be feasible for very long.

        In Egyptian society, for instance, there are also millions of Egyptians that are also as secular as the Kurds, but that manifestation was able to develop because the previous Mubarak regime was also not Islamic. Of course, in Egyptian society there are also millions of Muslims that are very Islamic as well. Indeed, it was a good thing that the Morsi government got over thrown when it did, because those secular Egyptians were fixing to become the victims of a mass genocide.

        Indeed, not everyone of Islamic persuasion are true loyal Muslims. If they live in a loose nit society, then a lot of blasphemous apostates will flaunt their secularism. However, in most Islamic totalitarian societies such flaunting is an automatic death sentence.

  • DontMessWithAmerica

    No wonder Obama made him AG. If we followed the dollar we would probably find historic contacts and links through his former law firm, Saudi Arabia, Qatar, Iran, Obama and Muslim Brotherhood members. Leave it to America the unique to have one of the world’s biggest scofflaws to be made the top law man. And there are no heroes on white chargers on the horizon to save the country. Maybe Allan West?

    Hmmmm. Here’s a thought: if Malignant Narcissism is a mental disorder can we remove Barack Hussein Obama by invoking the 25th Amendment, since his actions have shown that he is unable to faithfully execute the duties of the office and is unwilling to preserve, protect and defend the Constitution?

    The only thing he concerns is if the bomb actually gets to him and his boss. The only intention behind his announcement is that the government might be able to collect more tax money to guard against and monitor law abiding citizens. The only way to prevent such tragedy from happening is to sent Islam believing people back to where they belong.
