Arrogant criminals griping that they’ve not been paid for their crimes. By the way, the felonious illegal alien Perez brothers and all their illegal alien pals have not been arrested, nor will they be. Why? Because our corrupt open borders government wants you to see these criminals as ‘victims’. Why? It’s their latest attempt at back door amnesty. In the coming weeks and months you’ll see more headlines and hear the talking point of “An honest days pay for an honest days work” or a semblance thereof and the ditto heads will tell you that no matter that these people are in the country illegally, they should be paid for their work.
The problem with “An honest days pay for an honest days work” when applying it to illegal aliens should be rather obvious: It’s ill-gotten money from ill-gotten work. In other words, paying criminals for their crime.
A pot-selling ring that included over a dozen people was broken up after cops discovered 8,000 marijuana plants that would yield a street value of $8 million, authorities said today.
The DEA Strike Task Force pulled over a car in upstate Sullivan County that smelled of marijuana.
After receiving consent, they with the Sullivan County sheriff’s office and NYPD, searched seven houses and uncovered the 8,000 marijuana plants, sources told The Post.
The Drug Enforcement Administration said the plants were found in seven fields in and around the town of Wurstboro.
Each plant yields about one pound-worth of weed for an estimated total of $8 million, the sources said.
Authorities said the marijuana was sold throughout the city and as far south as Philadelphia.
Police sources believe the 16 people arrested had been running the largest indoor marijuana growing operation in the New York-area.
Sullivan County is located just two hours north of the city.
The 16 suspects are expected to be arraigned in White Plains Federal Court sometime this afternoon.
All of those arrested were said to be illegal aliens, sources said.
Personnel from the Sullivan County Sheriff’s office and agents with the Immigration and Customs Enforcement also took part in the raids.
This is how our corrupt open borders gubmint works: They weren’t arrested for being dangerous lying thieving felonious illegal aliens, they were arrested for growing mare-ee-wanna because growing mare-ee-wanna is…wait for it…illegal.
Somali JBS worker is facing a felony assault charge for allegations that she slashed another Somali woman with a meat hook earlier this month.
Ayan Mohamed, 26, was arrested March 24 on suspicion of second-degree assault. The Weld District Attorney has until 3:30 p.m., April 4 to file formal charges.
According to a Greeley police affidavit, Mohamed called fellow worker, Fartun Abdullahi, 20, to the second-story locker room at the JBS meatpacking plant on March 17. Abdullahi told police Mohamed pulled out a sharpened meat hook from behind her back, and struck her in the forehead and eyelid, grabbed her hair and began striking her in the back with the blunt end of the meat hook holder. She was taken to North Colorado Medical Center.
Mohamed, too, was taken to the hospital, complaining of stomach pains. She told police she was praying when Abdullahi attacked her with a hard hat, striking her stomach and yelling that she wanted her baby to die.
No witnesses came forward to discuss the incident, but one came forward two days later, stating that Mohamed told her that she threw herself on the ground to get Abdullahi in trouble. The witness said Mohamed admitted to attacking Abdullahi, who didn’t put a hand on her, the affidavit stated.
Another woman came forward, stating in a written statement that she watched the incident in which Mohamed attacked Abdullahi, and then threatened to blackmail anyone who would try to help Abdullahi.
Mohamed posted a $10,000 bond to get out of jail.
WASHINGTON (Reuters) – President Barack Obama has signed a secret order authorizing covert U.S. government support for rebel forces seeking to oust Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi, government officials told Reuters on Wednesday.
Obama signed the order, known as a presidential “finding”, within the last two or three weeks, according to four U.S. government sources familiar with the matter.
Such findings are a principal form of presidential directive used to authorize secret operations by the Central Intelligence Agency. The CIA and the White House declined immediate comment.
News that Obama had given the authorization surfaced as the President and other U.S. and allied officials spoke openly about the possibility of sending arms supplies to Gaddafi’s opponents, who are fighting better-equipped government forces.
The United States is part of a coalition, with NATO members and some Arab states, which is conducting air strikes on Libyan government forces under a U.N. mandate aimed at protecting civilians opposing Gaddafi.
In interviews with American TV networks on Tuesday, Obama said the objective was for Gaddafi to “ultimately step down” from power. He spoke of applying “steady pressure, not only militarily but also through these other means” to force Gaddafi out.
Obama said the U.S. had not ruled out providing military hardware to rebels. “It’s fair to say that if we wanted to get weapons into Libya, we probably could. We’re looking at all our options at this point,” the President told ABC News anchor Diane Sawyer.
U.S. officials monitoring events in Libya say that at present, neither Gaddafi’s forces nor the rebels, who have asked the West for heavy weapons, appear able to make decisive gains.
While U.S. and allied airstrikes have seriously damaged Gaddafi’s military forces and disrupted his chain of command, officials say, rebel forces remain disorganized and unable to take full advantage of western military support.
People familiar with U.S. intelligence procedures said that Presidential covert action “findings” are normally crafted to provide broad authorization for a range of potential U.S. government actions to support a particular covert objective.
In order for specific operations to be carried out under the provisions of such a broad authorization — for example the delivery of cash or weapons to anti-Gaddafi forces — the White House also would have to give additional “permission” allowing such activities to proceed.
Former officials say these follow-up authorizations are known in the intelligence world as “‘Mother may I’ findings.”
In 2009 Obama gave a similar authorization for the expansion of covert U.S. counter-terrorism actions by the CIA in Yemen. The White House does not normally confirm such orders have been issued.
Because U.S. and allied intelligence agencies still have many questions about the identities and leadership of anti-Gaddafi forces, any covert U.S. activities are likely to proceed cautiously until more information about the rebels can be collected and analyzed, officials said.
“The whole issue on (providing rebels with) training and equipment requires knowing who the rebels are,” said Bruce Riedel, a former senior CIA Middle East expert who has advised the Obama White House.
Riedel said that helping the rebels to organize themselves and training them how use weapons effectively would be more urgent then shipping them arms.
According to an article speculating on possible U.S. covert actions in Libya published early in March on the website of the Voice of America, the U.S. government’s broadcasting service, a covert action is “any U.S. government effort to change the economic, military, or political situation overseas in a hidden way.”
The article, by VOA intelligence correspondent Gary Thomas, said covert action “can encompass many things, including propaganda, covert funding, electoral manipulation, arming and training insurgents, and even encouraging a coup.”
U.S. officials also have said that Saudi Arabia and Qatar, whose leaders despise Gaddafi, have indicated a willingness to supply Libyan rebels with weapons.
Members of Congress have expressed anxiety about U.S. government activities in Libya. Some have recalled that weapons provided by the U.S. and Saudis to mujahedeen fighting Soviet occupation forces in Afghanistan in the 1980s later ended up in the hands of anti-American militants.
There are fears that the same thing could happen in Libya unless the U.S. is sure who it is dealing with. The chairman of the House intelligence committee, Rep. Mike Rogers, said on Wednesday he opposed supplying arms to the Libyan rebels fighting Gaddafi “at this time.”
“We need to understand more about the opposition before I would support passing out guns and advanced weapons to them,” Rogers said in a statement.
The Two Malcontents Summary: We will shortly see CIA Ground Branch Operatives and USSOCOM Special Operations Forces (SEAL, Green Beret, and Marine Special Ops) troops on the ground in Libya. Probably already there…
We may as well start designing the campaign ribbon for the inevitable future rotational deployments.
