August 15, 2017, 4:02 pmICE Raids Dozens Convenience Stores: Make America Safe Again

ICE Raids Dozens of Convenience Stores: Make America Safe Again (startling information)




But Now L@@K What the Media’s Hiding......



President Trump unleashed ICE once again this week, this time deploying its Homeland Security Investigations (HSI) unit, along with the DEA to arrest dozens of convenience store owners across 4 states.


Over 60 people were arrested, and already 35 of them have been indicted by a Federal grand jury, with federal conspiracy charges for money laundering,distributing controlled substances and trafficking contraband cigarettes.


The  AP carried this story:

The suspects conspired for more than 2 years to buy contraband cigarettes in St. Louis, a low tax market, while transporting and distributing them in Chicago, Illinois, and New Jersey, which are high tax markets. The store owners are accused of using several convenience stores that they operated to create the appearance of legal cigarette purchases.  Illegal profits form the contraband cigarette sales werelaundered through accounts associated with the stores, and used to manufacture and distribute illegal controlled substances.


A synthetic drug, K-2, was sold every day from a handful of the convenience stores. Authorities said the store owners manufactured synthetic drugs themselves by importing chemicals from China. 

“The collaboration with our federal and local law enforcement partners is the key to breaking criminal enterprises in this area,” said Special Agent in Charge James M. Gibbons of HSI Chicago.


Synthetic drugs that are sold as substitutes for cocaine and methamphetamine, are neither legal nor safe,” said James P. Shroba, Special Agent in Charge of the DEA St. Louis Division. “These substances were never intended for human consumption and only serve to satisfy the avarice of the seller.”

If convicted, the defendants face a maximum of five to 20 years in prison and the a $1 million dollar fine.

But here’s what the Associated “Press” didn’t think you needed to knowthe  names of those indicted.


Notice any pattern????

Mohammed Almuttan, aka Abu Ali,  35, St. Louis, MO

Rami Almuttan, aka Abu Louay,  33, St. Louis, MO

Hisham Mutan, aka Abu Mohamed,  41, St. Louis, MO

Saddam Mutan, aka Abu Ali,  24, St. Louis, MO

Mazin Abdelsalam, aka Abu Mohammad,  38, St. Louis, MO

Najeh Muhana, aka Abu Yazan, 41, Fairview, NJ

Fares Muhana, aka Abu Yamama,  40, Cliffside Park, NJ

Ayoub Qaiymah, aka Abu Faysal, 23, Richmond, VA

Naser Abid, 23, Chicago, IL

Yadgar Barzanji, aka Abu Siver,  47, St. Louis, MO

Wafaa Alwan,  50, St. Louis, MO

Ahmed Abuali, aka Bazilla, 31, North Bergen, NJ

Mohammed Kayed, aka Mohammed Fayez, 21, Clifton, NJ

Momen Abuali, 20, Little Ferry, NJ

Firat Sevindik,  42, Cliffside Park, NJ

Mohammed Mustafa, 30, North Bergen, NJ

Mohammad Karashqah, Abu Yazid, 47, North Bergen, NJ

Fayez Sheikha, 46, Mishawaka, IN

Jihad Shihadeh, Abu Malik,  58, Chicago Ridge, IL

Ismael Abadi, 57, Carol Stream, IL

Abed Hamed, Abed Fawzan, 39, Greenville, NC

Maher Hamed, Abu Alazara, 33, Swansea, IL

Abdel Adi, 25, Oak Lawn, IL

Muhanad Khatib, Abu Alamin, 36, Chicago, IL

Eyad Awad, 38, Chicago, IL

Ismael Mustafa, 60, Kankakee, IL

Hayder Al Fatli,  40, St. Louis, MO

Kutlay Guvener, 35, Chicago, IL

Saad Al Mallak, 30, Dittmer, MO

Hassan Abdelatif, 29, Collinsville, IL

Mahajir Naz,  32, St. Louis, MO

Talal Abuajaj,  23, St. Louis, MO

Basem Hamdan, aka Abu Ramiz,  57, St. Louis, MO

Zainal Saleh,  29, St. Louis, MO and

Ibrahim Awad,  39, St. Louis, MO

That’s rightevery single one of the 35 men indicted is Muslim. Nothing to see here, huh?  And there’s more. According to sources,  “at least 20” of the men are being held on additional “immigration detainers” by ICE. That means they are “suspected illegal aliens.


The AP didn’t feel you needed to know that either.  I’m sure it just slipped their minds.

This is just the latest in a continuing series of Muslim-owned convenience store criminal enterprises.

As TRN  reported, in 2015 state authorities in Alabama uncovered  a massive,  EBT-for-terrorism scheme in which Muslim-owned convenience stores exploited the U.S. welfare system to fund ISIS:

The massive probe, dubbed Operation T-bone, targeted those they say have been cheating the food stamp system to the tune of hundreds of thousands of dollarsand sending  the profits via wire transfer to Yemen, which is suspected to havefunded Islamic State (ISIS) terrorist activity.


And back then it was Alabama D.A. who led the investigation —not the Obama keystone cops, who strangely had nothing to do with that bust.   All 11 stores shut down by authorities were Muslim-owned.


There is a long history of Muslims using welfare systems for criminal activity, as well as purposely abusing the system.  As we reported in 2013, a prominent Muslim cleric called on Muslim immigrants in Western nations to  purposely collect government welfare as a so-called “Jihad Seeker’s Allowance.”


But during the last 8 years the Obama Administration has neglected the problem, whether deliberately or from incompetence.  It’s nice to see the Trump administration is not wasting any time in bringing these criminals to justice.

August 15, 2017, 3:32 amRevenge of a Retired Husband   :-)


Good Morning Coffee


After I retired, my wife insisted that I accompany her on her trips to Target.


Unfortunately, like most men; I found shopping boring and preferred to get in and get out.


Equally unfortunate, my wife is like most women - she loves to browse.


Yesterday my dear wife received the following letter, from the local Target:


Dear Mrs. Harris:


Over the past six months, your husband has caused quite a commotion in our store.. We cannot tolerate this behavior and have been forced to, ban both of you from the store. Our complaints against your husband, Mr. Harris, are listed below and are documented by our video surveillance cameras: 


1. June 15: He took 24 boxes of condoms and randomly put them in other people's carts when they weren't looking.


2. July 2: Set all the alarm clocks in Housewares to go off at 5-minute intervals.


3. July 7: He made a trail of tomato juice on the floor leading to the women's restroom.


4. July 19:Walked up to an employee and told her in an official voice, 'Code 3 in Housewares. Get on it right away'. This caused the employee to leave her assigned station and receive a reprimand from her Supervisor that in turn resulted with a union grievance, causing management to lose time and costing the company money. We don't have a Code 3. 


5. August 4: Went to the Service Desk and tried to put a bag of M&Ms on layaway. 


6. August 14: Moved a, 'CAUTION - WET FLOOR' sign to a carpeted area. 


7. August 15: Set up a tent in the camping department and told the children shoppers he'd invite them in if they would bring pillows and blankets from the bedding department to which twenty children obliged. 


8. August 23: When a clerk asked if they could help him he began crying and screamed, 'Why can't you people just leave me alone?' EMT’s were called. 


9. September 4: Looked right into the security camera and used it as a mirror while he picked his nose.


10. September 10: While handling guns in the hunting department, he asked the clerk where the antidepressants were


11. October 3: Darted around the store suspiciously while, loudly humming the, 'Mission Impossible' theme. 


12. October 6: In the auto department, he practiced his, 'Madonna Look' using different sizes of funnels. 


13. October 18: Hid in a clothing rack and when people browsed through, yelled 'PICK ME! PICK ME!' 


14. October 22: When an announcement came over the loud speaker, he assumed a fetal position and screamed; 'OH NO! IT'S THOSE VOICES AGAIN!' 


15. Took a box of condoms to the checkout clerk and asked where is the fitting room? 


And last, but not least: 


16. October 23: Went into a fitting room, shut the door, waited awhile; then yelled very loudly, 'Hey! There's no toilet paper in here.' One of the clerks passed out.

August 11, 2017, 6:54 pmWhy Mass Immigration Reality Is Unsustainable ??


The North American United States can cannot continue to absorb unregulated & uncontrolled influx of illegal immigrants across our borders. If left unabated, we are fast tracking our way to becoming a third world country. For near future periscope just L@@K at what is happening currently to Europe where national culture is being marginalized & assisted immigrant funding bordering on bankruptcy.

The US already has a quota system with orderly vetted & screened immigrants coming into this country, as we are a nation of immigrants & our people came from all corners of the globe. 

This doesn't seem to apply to Mexico (& all Central, South America also  Caribbean Countries plus expressed enemies who freely transit through Mexico)

Let's hope the US does not have the same problem of over population & unable to orderly absorb this mass daily influx where some school, health care & welfare systems are already buckling under the weight. How many new bilingual schools & hospitals can we build to accommodate???

 I cannot imagine where the endless jobs, health other  care, food & water are going to come from, say 50 years from now. It's like America taking on whole other countries' population & all the while losing her identity in the process.

Can we afford to become the free bread basket for Latin America, let alone all other 3rd & 4th world countries  ???

Think about it!

August 9, 2017, 8:04 pmPOLITICAL CORRECTNESS ANYONE ?? Good Definition>>

 Aren't  we all constantly hearing from the press that Trump is too opinionated and not using political correctness.


So what is meant by the modern term referred to as 'POLITICAL CORRECTNESS'..   


The definition is found in 4 telegrams at the Truman Library and Museum in Independence, Missouri.  The following are copies of four telegrams between President Harry Truman and General Douglas MacArthur on  the day before the actual signing of the WWII Surrender Agreement in September 1945.. 


The contents of those four telegrams below are exactly as received at the end of the war -  not a word has been added or deleted! 


(1) Tokyo, Japan   0800-September 1,1945 

To: President Harry S Truman 

From: General D A MacArthur 

Tomorrow we meet with those yellow-bellied s and sign the Surrender Documents, any last minute instructions? 


(2) Washington, D C   1300-September 1, 1945 

To: D A MacArthur 

From: H S Truman 

Congratulations, job well done, but you must tone down your obvious dislike of the Japanese whendiscussing the terms of the  surrender with the press, because some of your remarks are fundamentally not politically correct!   


(3) Tokyo, Japan  1630-September 1, 1945 

To: H S Truman 

From: D A MacArthur and C H Nimitz 

Wilco Sir, but both Chester and I are somewhat confused, exactly what does the term politically correct mean? 


(4) Washington, D C  2120-September 1, 1945 

To: D A MacArthur/C H Nimitz 

From: H S Truman 

Political Correctness is a doctrine, recently fostered by a delusional, illogical minority and promoted by a sick mainstream media, which holds forth the proposition that it is entirely possible to pick up a piece of by the clean end! 


With special thanks to the Truman Museum and Harry himself, you and I finally have a full understanding of what 'POLITICAL CORRECTNESS' really means....

August 7, 2017, 7:09 pmNO JOKE: Illinois Makes 'Barack Obama Day' A State Holiday

August 7, 2017 

Former President Barack Obama got a special present for his birthday this year: his very own holiday. According to NBC Chicago, on Friday Illinois Governor Bruce Rauner  signed into law a measure to designate Aug. 4 as “Barack Obama Day” across the state. The holiday will be celebrated each year on Obama’s birthday beginning in 2018.


The holiday will be “observed throughout the State as a day set apart to honor the 44th President of the United States of America who began his career serving the People of Illinois in both the Illinois State Senate and the United States Senate, and dedicated his life to protecting the rights of Americans and building bridges across communities,” Senate Bill 55 reads.

Gov. Rauner praised the idea behind the bill earlier this year after a previous version, which would have made the day a legal state holiday, failed. The new holiday is commemorative ONLY.

“It’s incredibly proud for Illinois that the president came from Illinois. I think it’s awesome, and I think we should celebrate it,” Rauner told reporters in February. “I don’t think it should be a formal holiday with paid, forced time off, but I think it should be a day of acknowledgment and celebration.”

SB 55 was introduced by Sen. Emil Jones III, the son of former Senate President Emil Jones, Jr., who played a major role in launching then-state Senator Obama to the U.S. Senate in 2004 and considers himself to be the former president’s political “godfather.” While several lawmakers abstained from voting on the measure, it passed both houses without a single vote against.

“Barack Obama Day” joins other commemorative holidays like Adlai Stevenson Day, Ronald Reagan Day and Jane Addams Day, for which workplaces do not close…

August 5, 2017, 5:49 amWOMEN'S REVENGE ; These are also funny :-)



'Cash, check or charge?' I asked, after folding items the woman wished to purchase.

As she fumbled for her wallet, I noticed a remote control for a television set in her purse.

'So, do you always carry your TV remote?' I asked. 

'No,' she replied, 'but my husband refused to come shopping with me, 

and I figured this was the most evil thing I could do to him legally.'


A couple drove down a country road for several miles, not saying a word.

An earlier discussion had led to an argument and 

neither of them wanted to concede their position. 

As they passed a barnyard of mules, goats, and pigs,

the husband asked sarcastically, 'Relatives of yours?' 

'Yep,' the wife replied, 'in-laws'



A husband read an article to his wife about how many words women use a day. 

30,000 to a man's 15,000. 

The wife replied, 'The reason has to be because we have to repeat everything to men...

The husband then turned to his wife and asked, 'What?'



A man said to his wife one day, 'I don't know how you can be 

so stupid and so beautiful all at the same time. 

'The wife responded, 'Allow me to explain. 

God made me beautiful so you would be attracted to me; 

God made me stupid so I would be attracted to you!



A man and his wife were having an argument about who 

should brew the coffee each morning. 


The wife said, 'You should do it because you get up first, 

and then we don't have to wait as long to get our coffee. 

The husband said, 'You are in charge of cooking around here and 

you should do it, because that is your job, and I can just wait for my coffee.' 

Wife replies, 'No, you should do it, and besides, it is in the Bible that the man should do the coffee.' 


Husband replies, 'I can't believe that, show me.' 

So she fetched the Bible, and opened the New Testament and showed him at the top of several pages, that it indeed says 


The Silent Treatment 


A man and his wife were having some problems at home 

and were giving each other the silent treatment. 

Suddenly, the man realized that the next day, he would need his wife to wake him 


at 5:0 0 AM for an early morning business flight. 

Not wanting to be the first to break the silence (and LOSE), he wrote on a piece of paper,


'Please wake me at 5:00 AM.    He left it where he knew she would find it. 

The next morning, the man woke up, only to discover it was 9:00 AM  and he had missed his flight 


Furious, he was about to go and  see why his wife hadn't wakened him, 

when he noticed a piece of paper by  the bed. 

The paper said, 'It is 5:00 AM. Wake up.' 

Men are not equipped for these kinds of contests.

God may have created man before woman, but there is always a rough draft before the masterpiece

IT expert who halted WannaCry cyber attack arrested in Las Vegas


LAS VEGAS - A British IT expert who was credited with stopping a global cyber attack known as "WannaCry" was  arrested by the FBI in Las Vegas for allegedly creating and distributing malicious software designed to collect bank information.  Marcus Hutchins, also known as "Malwaretech," was arrested on his way back to Britain after spending time at an annual conference for hackers and IT professionals.  Following a two-year investigation, an indictment filed in a Wisconsin court in July alleged that Hutchins and a co-defendant, whose name was redacted, conspired to advertise the Kronos banking Trojan around July 2014 and July 2015.  Authorities said the Kronos banking Trojan, created ...

August 4, 2017, 3:30 amReality Check: Remember When ??

Remember when Donald Trump formed a business partnership with the Russian government and his company got $53 million from the Russian government investment fund called Rusnano .....that was started by Vladimir Putin and is referred to as "Putin's Child?”


            Oh wait, that wasn't Trump; it was John Podesta.


Remember when Donald Trump received $500,000 for a speech in Moscow that was paid for by Renaissance Capital, a company tied to Russian Intelligence Agencies?


              Oh wait, that was Bill Clinton.



Remember when Donald Trump approved the sale of 20% of U.S. uranium to the Russians while he was Secretary of State giving control of it to Rosatom, the Russian State Atomic Energy Corporation?


            Oh wait, that was Hillary Clinton.


Remember when Donald Trump lied about that and said he wasn't a part of approving a deal that gave the Russians 1/5 of our uranium, but then his e-mails were leaked showing he did lie about it?


           Oh wait, that was Hillary Clinton and John Podesta.


Remember when Donald Trump got $145 million from shareholders of the uranium company sold to the Russians?


          Oh wait, that was Hillary Clinton and the Clinton Foundation.


Remember when Donald Trump accepted millions in donations from Russian oligarchs like the chairman of a company that is part of the Russian Nuclear Research Cluster;  the wife of the mayor of Moscow and a close pal of Putin's?


          Oh wait, that was the Clinton Foundation.


Remember when Donald Trump failed to disclose all those donations before becoming the Secretary of State, and it was only found out when a journalist went through Canadian tax records? 


          Oh wait, that was Hillary Clinton.


Remember when Donald Trump told Mitt Romney that the ' "The Cold War is over?"


            Oh wait, that was President Obama.


Man, Trump's ties to Russia are REALLY "disgusting!"

August 3, 2017, 4:21 amThis could/will be us - These are funny :-)

This could/will be us.....


Couple in  their nineties are both having problems remembering things. 

During a  check-up, the doctor tells them that they're physically okay, but they 

might want to start writing things down to help them remember. 

Later that  night, while watching TV, the old man gets up from his chair 

'Want  anything while I'm in the kitchen?' he asks.


'Will you  get me a bowl of ice cream?' 



'Don't you  think you should write it down so you can remember it?'  she 



'No, I  can remember it.' 


'Well, I'd  like some strawberries on top, too. Maybe you should write it 

down,  so as not to forget it?' 


He says,  'I can remember that. You want a bowl of ice cream  with 



'I'd also  like whipped cream. I'm certain you'll forget that, write it 

down?' she  asks. 


Irritated, he  says, 'I don't need to write it down, I can remember it! Ice 

cream with  strawberries and whipped cream - I got it, for  goodness sake!' 


Then he  toddles into the kitchen. After about 20 minutes, the old man 

returns  from the kitchen and hands his wife a plate of bacon and eggs. She 

stares  at the plate for a moment. 

'Where's my  toast?'



An elderly  couple had dinner at another couple's house, and after eating 

the  wives left the table and went into the kitchen. The two gentlemen  were 

talking, and one said, 'Last night we went out to a new restaurant and it 

was really great I would recommend it very highly.'  The other man said, 

'What is the name of the restaurant?' 


The first  man thought and thought and finally said 'what’s the name of 

that flower you  give to someone you love? You know, the one that's red and has 

thorns.'  'Do you mean a rose?' 'Yes, that's the one,'  replied the man. 

He then turned towards the kitchen and yelled, 'Rose,  what's the name of 

that restaurant we went to last  night?' 



Hospital  regulations require a wheel chair for patients being discharged. 

However, while working as a student nurse, I found one elderly gentleman 

already dressed and sitting on the bed with a suitcase at his feet, who 

insisted he didn't need  my help to leave the hospital. 


After a chat  about rules being rules, he reluctantly let me wheel him to 

the  elevator. 


On the way down  I asked him if his wife was meeting him. 'I don't know,' 

he said. 'She's  still upstairs in the bathroom changing out of her  hospital 




A senior  citizen said to his eighty-year old buddy: 'So I hear  you're 

getting married?' 'Yep!'' Do I know  her?' 'Nope!' 'This woman, is she  good 


'Not  really.' 

'Is she a good  cook?' 

'Nah, she can't  cook too well.' 

'Does she have lots  of money?' 


Poor  as a church mouse.' 

'Well, then, is she  good in bed?' 

'I  don't know.' 

’Why in the world  do you want to marry her then?’ 

'Because she  can still drive!' 



A man was telling  his neighbor, 'I just bought a new hearing aid. It cost 

me four  thousand dollars, but it's state of the art. It's perfect.' 


answered  the neighbor. 'What kind is it?' 

'Twelve thirty.' 



Morris, an 82  year-old man, went to the doctor to get a physical. 

A few days  later, the doctor saw Morris walking down the street with a 

gorgeous  young woman on his arm. 

A couple of  days later, the doctor spoke to Morris and said, 'You're 

really doing  great, aren't you?' 

Morris replied,  'Just doing what you said, Doc: 'Get a hot mamma and  be 


The doctor  said, 'I didn't say that.. I said, 'You've got a heart murmur; 

be  careful.' 



One  more........

A little old  man shuffled slowly into an ice cream parlor and pulled 

himself  slowly, painfully, up onto a stool... After catching his breath, he  ordered a 

banana split. 


The waitress  asked kindly, 'Crushed nuts?' 

'No,' he  replied, 'Arthritis.'
