-Lurid Crime Tales-
80 Migrants Found in Texas Border City Stash House
[Breitbart] Border Patrol agents in Laredo, Texas, discovered more than 80 migrants crammed into a single residential home on Monday. The agents, responding to a report of suspicious activity in the area, found the migrants scattered throughout the scene. The migrants were arrested and removed from the unsanitary conditions and were processed for removal from the country.

Although Laredo Sector ranks much lower than most in the southwest in the apprehension of migrants, traffic in the area is distinct from others. Laredo is the busiest port of entry in Texas, according to the Texas Comptroller. Due to the high volume of legitimate commercial tractor trailers, the Border Patrol encounters a significant number of tractor-trailer migrant smuggling schemes.

The stash houses are used by human traffickers to hide the migrants while transportation away from the border area is coordinated.
According to the Border Patrol, the number of migrants being held in this home is cause for concern. They consider stash houses a national security threat due to the criminal activity and the unsanitary conditions during a pandemic.

Within the first two months of this fiscal year, the Border Patrol in Laredo discovered six total stash houses in the city. During the month of November, nearly 160 migrants were removed from stash houses. In October, two homes containing nearly 50 migrants were discovered. Monday’s discovery involved the highest number of migrants discovered in a single home this fiscal year.

Despite the significant number of high-volume smuggling events interdicted and the number of migrant stash houses discovered within the city, there is some promising news. According to the Border Patrol, the Laredo Sector is the only area along the southwest border that reported a decline in migrant apprehensions thus far this fiscal year.

In October, the sector reported 7,443 apprehensions, compared to 9,373 in October 2020.

Texas Police Capture Migrant Gang Member Convicted in 2004 Murder

[Breitbart] Texas State Troopers arrested two migrants near Cotulla Sunday during border patrols. The pair was turned over to Laredo Sector Border Patrol agents for processing and potential removal. Agents discovered one migrant, Jose Arias-Gonzalez, was a suspected Sureno gang member who was previously convicted of murder with a 16-year prison term.

Federal authorities say Arias-Gonzalez freely admitted to being an active Sureno member.

Contemporaneous news reports show Arias-Gonzalez’s murder case dates back to the 2004 killing of 45-year-old David Norman Collins Jr. in Clayton, North Carolina. Arias-Gonzalez shot Collins, a security guard at the Dockside Dolls strip club. According to witnesses, Collins escorted Arias-Gonzalez and several other men out of the club when an altercation occurred.

During the altercation, Collins was shot by Arias Gonzalez and later transported to a hospital where he was pronounced dead after arrival. Arias Gonzalez was charged and subsequently convicted of first-degree murder. Others received accessory charges.

Arias-Gonzalez now faces felony charges of re-entry after removal as an aggravated felon. If convicted, he could face up to 20 years in federal prison.

This is the second migrant apprehended in the Laredo Sector in November with a previous murder conviction. On November 17, Border Patrol Agents arrested Juventino Orta-Garcia, a 50-year-old citizen of Mexico, shortly after his illegal entry. Agents discovered Orta-Garcia committed a 1988 murder in Texas.

Women with alleged Al-Shabaab links arrested in Kenya's remote village
[Garowe] Detectives in Kenya have arrested a woman believed to have strong ties with Somalia-based al-Shabaab
...... an Islamic infestation centering on Somalia attempting to metastasize into Kenya, Tanzania, Uganda, and similar places, all of which have enough problems without them...
Death Eaters, following tips from locals who had suspected her movements within the village.

The Director of Criminal Investigations [DCI] said the woman, 22, whose name was not immediately revealed due to security reasons, was arrested by police in Soghor, Tinderet in Nandi County, about 300 km west of the capital, Nairobi.

Police said the suspect was cohabiting with a man at Kamalambu village in Nandi before the suspicious locals raised an alarm leading to her immediate arrest. In her own admission, police added, the woman confirmed that she was in Somalia for some time before returning to Kenya.
"cohabiting with a man"? Her brother? Were they married? Calling Ilhan Omar
"The villagers’ fears were confirmed when during interrogation after being arrested, the woman told detectives that she had been in Somalia for two years after allegedly being kidnapped by members of the Alshabab terror network in Kilifi, in 2019," DCI said.

"She confessed to having been trained on weapon handling skills, hostage-taking, and use of explosives among other skills. The woman is said to have attended the recently concluded KDF recruitment exercise at different centers."

The Anti Terror detectives [ATPU] have since taken over investigations into the matter and shall be grilling the suspect for more information. The DCI thanked the members of the public in Tinderet, Nandi county who volunteered information leading to the arrest of the suspect.

"This kind of mutual partnership between the public and coppers is highly encouraged since a secure nation is our collective responsibility. Should you have any information that you would wish to share with us anonymously, please dial 0800 722 203 and speak to our agents, " DCI added.

Her arrest comes after three al-Shabaab convicts beat feet from Kenya's most secure correctional facility, the Kamiti Maximum Prison in Nairobi. The three have already been slapped with additional 15 months for jailbreak.

Recently, the Kenya Defense Forces [KDF] has been recruiting prospective soldiers and the said suspect was keen to join. There have been reports of possible collaboration between the security officers and al-Shabaab terrorists, a reason why the government has called for vigilance.

Kenya is one of the countries which has struggled to contain al-Shabaab activities but in recent weeks, incidents of terror attacks have substantially reduced. Mandera, Wajir, and Garissa are some of the counties which have attracted high cases of terrorism.

Hundreds of Ugandan troops cross into Congo as offensive widens
[EN.ALGHADEERTV.NET] Hundreds of Ugandan soldiers in armoured vehicles crossed the border into eastern Democratic Republic of the Congo
...formerly the Congo Free State, Belgian Congo, Zaire, and who knows what else, not to be confused with the Brazzaville Congo aka Republic of Congo, which is much smaller and much more (for Africa) stable. DRC gave the world Patrice Lumumba and Joseph Mobutu, followed by years of tedious civil war. Its principle industry seems to be the production of corpses. With a population of about 74 million it has lots of raw material...
on Wednesday, two witnesses said, as a joint offensive against an Islamic State
...formerly ISIS or ISIL, depending on your preference. Before that they were al-Qaeda in Iraq, as shaped by Abu Musab Zarqawi. They're really very devout, committing every atrocity they can find in the Koran and inventing a few more. They fling Allah around with every other sentence, but to hear western pols talk they're not really Moslems....
-linked gang appeared to expand. Late on Tuesday Congo said special forces from both countries would be deployed to secure bases belonging to the Allied Democratic Forces
...the ADF is one of several murderous Moslem groups in NE Congo. In 2019 the U.S. Treasury Department imposed sanctions on them for the usual reasons. They don't appear to be affiliated with al-Qaeda or Islamic State, though ISIS claims their work from time to time — they just like killing infidels....
(ADF) militia, which had been targeted by air and artillery strikes earlier in the day.

The campaign takes place after months of lobbying of regional governments by President Felix Tshisekedi, whose own efforts to end the decades of bloodshed in Congo’s east have been stymied by poor planning, corruption and insufficient funding, according to a parliamentary report.

On Wednesday morning Ugandan troops and vehicles were seen crossing into Congo at the Nobili border post for the second day, a local resident and civil rights activist said.

"I have just seen 30 vehicles full of Ugandan soldiers entering Congo. I also saw two tanks," said Blaise Bokassa, who lives in Nobili. "If our army collaborates with (the Ugandan army) a solution will be found, and the history of the ADF will be consigned to the past."

Faustin Baraka Baswegy, a member of a civil rights group in Nobili, said he also saw troops enter Congo in the morning.

"I have seen many vehicles with hundreds of Ugandan soldiers," he said.

A Ugandan army spokeswoman said she could not immediately comment. Congo’s government front man Patrick Muyaya said he had no further information but has scheduled a news conference for later on Wednesday to provide an update on the joint operation.

The ADF, which started as an uprising in Uganda but has been based in Congo since the late 1990s, pledged allegiance to the Islamic State in mid-2019, but United Nations
...an organization which on balance has done more bad than good, with the good not done well and the bad done thoroughly...
researchers have found no evidence of IS command and control over ADF operations.

Little is currently known about the scope and duration of the operation, said Nelleke Van de Walle from the Brussels-based think tank International Crisis Group.

ars longa, vita brevis...
it appeared to be more ambitious than the last time Uganda’s army attacked the ADF in Congo in 2017, when it said it killed 100 fighters in Arclight airstrike

Although welcomed by some, it has also provoked unease in both capitals because of the Ugandan army’s conduct during Congo’s 1998-2003 civil war, for which Kinshasa is seeking billions of dollars of reparations. Uganda has called the amount ruinous.

"We fear we could see the same illegal activities that happened during the past deployment, stealing gold and those other commodities," Joel Ssenyonyi, a Ugandan opposition politician, told Rooters.

"They needed parliamentary permission so we can debate why they need to go there. Is there a legitimate justification or are they going there to steal again?"

#1  The region provides the term "endless wars" foundational meaning. If you are looking for a possible genetic predisposition to violence and mayhem, look no further. It has been little more than a tribal killing field in the 60-65 years, and possibly tens of thousands of years prior to that. I hope and pray the US can stay out of it.

Fifth Column
“We need to embrace any means necessary.”

From their Twitter page:
The Socialist Rifle Association is composed of anti-fascist, anti-racist socialists who defend the right of the working class to keep and bear arms. Ⓐ☭
They appear keen on regularly cleaning their weapons, and have chapters across the U.S., each with SRA in the name. Very clearly gun ownership is as much appreciated on the left as the right, despite all the propaganda about gun control on the sinister side of the aisle.

#7  That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness. Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shewn, that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable, than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed.

#12  By any means necessary - man, that sounds serious. But just how far are you willing to go? I'm not talking about killing people. We got 11 year old kids out doing murders. Ain't no thing, nowadays.

I'm talking about hard stuff. Like learning algebra. Or studying electrical engineering. Or doing an uninteresting job 5 days a week to pay for a wife and kids and a house. Hard hard stuff, not the momentary impulse to squeeze a trigger.

Black Lives Matter calls for month-long boycott of 'white companies'
Change they can believe in.
  • [Daily Mail, Where America Gets Its News] The Black Lives Matter movement is calling for supporters to boycott 'white' companies, organizations, and banks for the holiday shopping season

  • 'We're dreaming of a #BlackXmas. That means no spending with white companies,' the official Black Xmas website states

  • BLM claims that 'white-supremacist-capitalism is complicit in the murder of Black people by police'

  • Black Xmas began on Black Friday and will last until New Years Day

  • The holiday boycott began in 2014 in response to the police killing of John Crawford, a black man who was fatally shot while shopping in an Ohio Walmart

CASO launched at main town Bandipora
[GREATERKASHMIR] Security forces on Thursday launched a massive cordon at main town Bandipora in the north Kashmir
...a disputed territory lying between India and Pakistain. After partition, the Paks grabbed half of it and call it Azad (Free) Kashmir. The remainder they refer to as "Indian Occupied Kashmir". They have fought four wars with India over it, the score currently 4-0 in New Delhi's favor. After 72 years of this nonsense, India cut the Gordian knot in 2019, removing the area's special status, breaking off Ladakh as a separate state, and allowing people from other areas to settle (or in the case of the Pandits, to resettle) there....
district.Eyewitnesses told Greater Kashmir that joint contingents of Jammu and Kashmir police, Army and CRPF reached the vegetable market at old bus stand Bandipora this afternoon.

The cordon was also extended to Gulshan Chowk, and adjoining areas of the main market, including, Plan, the district's main town.

Reports said that the entry and exit points were sealed for any public moment adding the cordon was launched following inputs about the movement of suspected hard boyz in the market.

Three killed in an ISIS attack in Nineveh

A security source reported that an ISIS attack on a Kurdish village in Nineveh resulted in several casualties.

The source told Shafaq News Agency that ISIS murderous Moslems stormed Khadarja village in Makhmour District.

The murderous Moslems killed three sons of the village's mayor before they fled, according to the source.

No further details were disclosed.
On second thought, I think the report below is of the same attack:

...formerly ISIS or ISIL, depending on your preference. Before that they were al-Qaeda in Iraq, as shaped by Abu Musab Zarqawi. They're really very devout, committing every atrocity they can find in the Koran and inventing a few more. They fling Allah around with every other sentence, but to hear western pols talk they're not really Moslems....
(ISIS) attack in Erbil’s Makhmour town late on Thursday night. The offensive comes as America’s combat mission in Iraq nears an end with the group’s activities having seen an increase in the country in recent weeks, especially in the disputed areas between Erbil and Baghdad.

Seven members of the Kurdish forces were killed in an ISIS ambush when the terror group attacked Liheban and Khidirjija villages in Qarachogh area, the Ministry of Peshmerga said in a statement on Friday.

Several others have been injured, the ministry added.

In this most recent attack on Qarachogh, ISIS also clashed with civilians, killing three brothers with the youngest only 11 years old.

"My brother informed us and said come out, ISIS [Arabic acronym for ISIS] has surrounded the house," Kazim Ismael, one of the brothers of the killed, told Rudaw’s Halabja Sadoon following the attack. "We fought with all the strength we had, we resisted but unfortunately they were martyred."

The mother of the three sons killed in their confrontation with ISIS called on the leader of the Kurdistan Region ruling party Masoud Barzani to look into the situation as they were attacked in their own home.

"My son was eleven, the other was 18 and one was 24. He is married, he has a wife and a daughter," Bayan Osman told Rudaw, adding that she is ready to sacrifice the life of the rest of her sons for the Kurdistan Region.

On Sunday, ISIS grabbed credit for a deadly attack on the Peshmerga in Diyala. Earlier in November, it also grabbed credit for a late October attack in which two Peshmerga were killed on the Erbil-Kirkuk border. A few days later, the Peshmerga prevented another attack in the same area.

ISIS also attacked Peshmerga forces on the Kifri-Garmaser border between Sulaimani and Diyala provinces earlier this month.

The gap between Peshmerga and Iraqi forces is up to 40 kilometers wide in parts. "ISIS has been able to exploit the lack of coordination between forces to operate in the ungoverned territory," the Pentagon stated in its latest report on anti-ISIS operations.

Secretary-General of the Ministry of Peshmerga Jabar Yawar on Monday told Rudaw that the recent ISIS attacks are originating from areas controlled by Iraqi forces.

"I can say that whenever ISIS attacks Peshmerga forces, they come from areas controlled by Iraqi forces, and after they are done, they return to those areas," Yawar said.

Mossad recruited Iranian scientists to blow up nuclear facility - report
[JPost] Even if it's not true/exaggerated, it'll cause a purge among the capable
As many as 10 nuclear scientists agreed to help destroy centrifuges at the Natanz nuclear facility.

The Mossad was behind the destruction of one of Iran's most secure and important nuclear facilities, and they did this by discreetly recruiting a team of Iranian nuclear scientists, according to a new report by the Jewish Chronicle. According to the report, as many as 10 nuclear scientists agreed to help destroy the centrifuge hall at the Natanz nuclear facility in April. However, it seems they did not know they were doing this on behalf of Israel, but rather for other dissident groups.
“Hi, my name is Moshe. I’m a peace-loving Iranian Shiite. I think we should burn down the nuclear bomb factory. Who’s with me?”
Ultimately, the Natanz explosion caused significant destruction at the Natanz nuclear plant.

From the start, Iranian media and officials accused Israel of being behind the incident, something Israel has never commented on, despite originally referring to it as an accident. Others further speculated that the US was somehow involved

However, according to the JC, the destruction of the Natanz centrifuges was conducted by the Mossad alone, and had been in the works for years.

According to the report, explosives were hidden as early as 2019. Further, an armed drone was smuggled into the Islamic Republic piece by piece in order to eventually launch missiles at another site in Karaj.

Overall, the report claims three operations were planned in a period of just 18 months. This included the work of a thousand technicians, spies and on-the-ground operatives.

This is a developing story.

The Times of Israel adds:
It says the explosives used in the attack were smuggled in through various means, including in a catering truck and in packages dropped by a drone and collected by the accomplices inside the facility.

"The scientists’ motivations were all different," an unnamed source told the paper. "Mossad found out what they deeply wanted in their lives and offered it to them. There was an inner circle of scientists who knew more about the operation, and an outer circle who helped out but had less information."

He added that the scientists were all taken to safety after the attack and are safe.

Courtesy of Skidmark, the Daily Mail has more:
Mossad spies recruited top Iranian scientists to blow up their own nuclear plant by 'posing as dissidents' and 'smuggling explosives disguised as boxes of food'
  • Israeli agents reportedly drafted up to 10 scientists to destroy nuclear facility

  • Explosives were apparently smuggled inside on lorries and dropped by drones

  • Revelation is one of three alleged Mossad-linked act of sabotages dating to 2020, when the Natanz facility was first hit by explosives

  • A third operation also reportedly took place in June when a bombing was carried out by a quadcopter drone on the Iran Centrifuge Technology Company (TESA).

  • It comes as the Israeli PM calls on the US to halt resumed nuclear talks with Iran

#4  Gosh, perhaps you need to ruthlessly vet all your nuke scientist staffing, what a great false flag op. If the Mossad confessed to doing this, of course it is a false flag move, unless its a double flip, or a triple? Oh by the way don’t look ar janitorial staff or the security guys? Wilderness of Mirrors psyops at their finest.

#7  It comes down to theology.
If the Mossad blows up an Iranian nuke plant, then it's the perfidious Juice. But if a believer does it, then it is the will of Allan. Inshallah, bitches!
