Hassan Shibly, attorney for the family of ‘ISIS bride’ Hoda Muthana, speaks out on her desire to return

Published

Hassan Shibly, the attorney for the family of “ISIS bride” Hoda Muthana, went on Fox News to make a plea for the family member of his client to return to the United States and face the consequences of her actions.

Muthana fled America when she was 19-years-old, joined the Islamic State, and proceeded to encourage others to do the same through social media. She posted multiple times for terrorist attacks to be undertaken in America, though there are questions about whether or not she maintained control of her social media profiles after joining the terrorist group.

Five years and three husbands later, Muthana has been interviewed by multiple American news outlets to state her desire to come back to the country. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo has denied that she’s a citizen, saying she will not be let back in.

ISIS recruit Hoda Muthana will not be allowed to ‘face justice’

https://noqreport.com/2019/02/20/isis-recruit-hoda-muthana-will-not-allowed-face-justice/Secretary of State Mike Pompeo addressed calls for an Alabama woman, Hoda Muthana, to return to the United States to face justice after betraying the nation and joining the Islamic State. Five years and three husbands later, she has requested to come back to America with her son to face justice, but she cannot. She is not a United States citizen, according to Pompeo.

If she were allowed to come back to America, it sets the precedent that anyone who betrays their nation because they were misled will be allowed to come back. The prospects of life in jail seem to be more comforting to her than the life she’s currently living. She should not be afforded that luxury.

My Take

There are some good points being made by both sides. She abandoned the country and it seems that many decades in prison may be better for her and her child than continuing to live in the Middle East or fleeing elsewhere. One important point the family is making is that she has “valuable information” about the Islamic State. Moreover, she expressed a desire to speak out and warn others considering similar actions against betraying the nation.

Personally, I’d like to see her come back and face American justice. I know that’s not a popular stance right now but the benefits of bringing her back outweigh the detriments. She’s a traitor, but she’s also an example to potential future traitors.

Trump hits fired Secretary of State Rex Tillerson for comments about preparedness

Trump hits fired Secretary of State Rex Tillerson for comments about preparedness

Former Secretary of State Rex Tillerson informed lawmakers that he believed President Trump was less prepared than Russian President Vladimir Putin when they met in Germany. Now, the President has struck back with insults for his former chief diplomat.

“We spent a lot of time in the conversation talking about how Putin seized every opportunity to push what he wanted,” a House Foreign Affairs Committee aide told the Washington Post. “There was a discrepancy in preparation, and it created an unequal footing.”

The President’s response went after Tillerson’s intelligence:

Nobody who wasn’t there can know for sure what happened, but the President makes an important point with his insults. Tillerson did essentially nothing as Secretary of State. Those who think he was held back by the President need only look at how much current Secretary of State Mike Pompeo has accomplished in much less time. It’s like night and day.

It’s hard to believe Tillerson at this point. He’s been critical of the President since before he was fired. Stories of his inability to cope with the pressures of his job abound. And, as the President noted, we’re doing well.

Cuban illegal immigrant apprehensions increase 1600% in Del Rio Sector alone

Cuban illegal immigrant apprehensions increase 1600 in Del Rio Sector alone

Central American migrants may get the bulk of the attention from Border Patrol since they account for the largest groups crossing our southern border illegally, but Cubans have been making their way into Mexico and on to the United States at a higher rate than ever, up 1600% in the Del Rio Sector alone.

“This recent trend in the Del Rio Sector area of responsibility of Cuban Nationals crossing the border illegally between the POEs highlights the complexity of the immigration problem and the need for an immediate solution,” said Del Rio Sector Acting Chief Patrol Agent Randy Davis.

Del Rio Sector has seen increases in illegal immigrant apprehensions from 30 countries other than Mexico, accounting for 23,000 apprehensions, a 450% increase year-over-year.

Opinion

Our sovereignty has become the joke of the world. We are no longer a nation that is willing to defend our own borders or protect our citizens. This was the case in Europe recently and it has harmed many of the nations of the European Union to the point that some of them are finally starting to say “no more.” Are we going to wait until more tragedies strike (there have been more tragedies than we can document here) before we start taking this crisis seriously?

My best friend is a legal Cuban immigrant. She has been a wonderful and loyal friend as well as a patriotic American. She is even more opposed to illegal immigration than I am because she’s seen how it has taken away many of her own opportunities and cast a stigma on her that is not indicative of her own lawful behavior. She, like so many millions of American immigrants, want the illegal aliens to stop breaking the law as their first action in America.

This needs to come to a quick and decisive end. We will no longer be a nation if we continue allowing anyone and everyone to enter the country and roam free.

“Migrants seeking entry into the United States need to present themselves at a Port of Entry to be lawfully admitted.” – Randy Davis

Final Thoughts

The word is out, and not just in Central America. Our southern borders are barely protected and our laws are conducive to illegal immigrants who want to claim asylum. This is becoming an existential threat to American citizens.

None of the states that have signed the National Popular Vote Compact voted for Trump in 2016

None of the states that have signed the National Popular Vote Compact voted for Trump in 2020

File this in the “not surprising” cabinet. Of the 14 states plus the District of Columbia who have signed on for the National Popular Vote Interstate Compact, none of them voted for President Trump in 2016. So as of today, the 189 electoral college votes that have been promised to the winner of the popular vote in the presidential election were votes that went to Hillary Clinton anyway.

That doesn’t mean this isn’t a real threat. If they’re able to get to the 270-vote mark, the level necessary to trigger the compact and elect the President, that would mean they were able to take some states that voted for Trump in 2016. But that’s not the real threat, here.

As some states move forward with efforts to prevent President Trump from appearing on their ballots unless he releases his tax returns, the combination of the two efforts could make it literally impossible for President Trump to win reelection.

There were very good reasons the founding fathers did not want the popular vote to determine the presidency. The first and biggest is a fear of mob rule. Oppression by the majority is a natural and unfair concept that, in theory, could change the way our nation operates for decades to come. Because so much Democratic power is concentrated in large cities on the coasts, it is easier for them to unify behind a leftist message and dominate the elections. Democrat-heavy New York City has more people than 38 states.

As for the states’ requirements to have tax returns released before letting a candidate on the ballot, it may be draconian but it’s neither illegal nor immoral. I know that’s not a popular opinion to have since it’s being used against President Trump, but the states are allowed to set whatever criteria they want for BALLOT entry. Keep in mind, that does NOT mean I condone the actions as they’re directed against the President. Also, in no way can a state supersede the requirements for someone to be elected president. Ballot issues, as bad as they’ve been over the years, are still squarely under the jurisdiction of the states and must be protected. There are enough states’ rights that have been taken away over the years. This shouldn’t be one of them.

With that said, it makes things very, very difficult for someone who is not on the ballot. Write-in votes don’t always work properly. Bad spelling, bad handwriting, bad vote-counters – the possibilities are endless. I sincerely hope no state, especially California, moves forward with such a plan to keep the President off the ballot.

Imagine this scenario: President Trump wins the popular vote and takes not only the states that he wins but also the states that would have voted for the Democrat. It would be the biggest landslide since Reagan, 1984.
