-Lurid Crime Tales-
Haitian migrants in custody have 'hijacked' multiple buses
DEL RIO, Texas — Haitian migrants in federal custody have "hijacked" multiple buses during transport rides and forced out drivers in incidents that threaten to stop the U.S. government's immigration enforcement operations, according to three people familiar with the incidents.

"They’ve been basically overpowering the drivers and they’ve actually hijacked a couple of the buses and driven them down the road a little ways and escaped. This happened multiple times," a senior federal law enforcement official told the Washington Examiner Tuesday evening.

The incidents have occurred aboard the boarded-up school buses and commercial coach buses transporting Haitian migrants from the camp beneath the Del Rio-Ciudad Acuna International Bridge to processing centers across the region, as well as from the processing centers to local airports for deportation flights.

They’re moving the detainees, but they’re not shackled — they’re not restrained in any way. Yesterday some detainees kicked a window out and 22 escaped," the same official said, referring to an incident on Monday.

"Now they’re going to start doing high-risk escorts," the official added.

On Monday afternoon, a bus bound for San Antonio, Texas, was taken over during the two-and-a-half-hour trip from the international bridge in Del Rio. The migrants on board had been picked up from the makeshift migrant camp, where thousands are waiting to be taken into custody.

"They did break out of the bus, and they did escape," a second federal law enforcement official confirmed to the Washington Examiner on Tuesday.

Law enforcement searched for the escapees and recaptured them that evening.

Immigration and Customs Enforcement and the Department of Homeland Security did not immediately respond to requests for comment.

-Land of the Free
DHS Is Releasing Many Haitians from Del Rio Landing
[Breitbart] Biden administration officials began quietly telling journalists Monday they will release many of the roughly 15,000 Haitian migrants in the Del Rio camp.

The releases will allow the migrants to take Americans’ jobs, to compete for housing, to ask for asylum and green cards, and to put their children into the crowded classrooms needed by ordinary American kids.

The Haitian catch and release process also will be displayed by Haitians’ cellphones and will encourage more Haitians to risk their children’s lives in the long trek to the U.S. border.

The quiet promises of catch-and-release are being hidden behind showcase video of small-scale deportations, and behind televised bluster from top officials, including Alejandro Mayorkas, the pro-migration chief of the Department of Homeland Security (DHS).

Morgan Chesky, a reporter for NBC Nightly News, said September 20:

Senior DHS officials telling NBC News the administration will prioritize deporting single Haitian adults and families [who are] not claiming asylum. Unaccompanied children and most families asking for asylum can stay in the U.S.


Bill Melugin, at Fox News, tweeted September 19 that U.S. Border Patrol Chief Raul Ortiz "told me single adult men will be expelled via Title 42, but most family units will be processed and released into US."

The Haitians "aren’t idiots ... they’re rational actors," responded Mark Krikorian, the director of the Center for Immigration Studies. He continued:

They’re not cartoons in the imagination of some liberal do-gooder. They’re people who have a good sense of what they want and what the odds are ... [So] if anyone who brings a child with him is exempted from the [deportation] rules, then sending back the single adults only [to Haiti] is not really sending the [deterrence] message that people think it is, because it is saying [to Haitians] "Always make damn sure you have a kid with you, and then we’ll let you go into the U.S."


U.S. officials are expect to invite roughly 2 million legal and illegal migrants into the United States during 2021. The inflow will deliver roughly one migrant for every two American births. The flood of imported labor, consumers and renters will reduce Americans’ wages, raise their housing costs, and add more chaotic diversity into Americans’ fractured society.

Afghanistan
Five Killed in Five Attacks in Jalalabad
[ToloNews] Jalalabad city in the eastern province of Nangarhar
The unfortunate Afghan province located adjacent to Mohmand, Kurram, and Khyber Agencies. The capital is Jalalabad. The province was the fief of Younus Khalis after the Soviets departed and one of his sons is the current provincial Taliban commander. Nangarhar is Haqqani country..
witnessed five security incidents on Wednesday morning.

Four explosions in different parts of the city took the lives of two people and injured three others, eyewitnesses told TOLOnews.

Those maimed have been transferred to the hospital in the provincial center.

In the meantime, a button men attack in an area near a base of the border forces of the former government resulted in three people killed.

No details have been obtained on the intended target of the attacks.

The head of the information and culture department of Nangarhar province said all those killed and maimed were civilians and no Taliban
...Arabic for students...
forces were harmed in the attack.

So far, no group has grabbed credit for the earth-shattering kabooms or attack by button men.

Earlier this week, however, ISIS grabbed credit for previous explosions in Nangarhar.

ISIS also grabbed credit for the earth-shattering kabooms outside Kabul airport in August.

The attacks follow repeated statements by Zabihullah Mujahid, deputy minister for the Ministry of Information and Culture, that ISIS movements in Afghanistan are not at a scale that could pose a security threat.

Mujahid has also said that Taliban forces have the capability to counter ISIS.

Another 21 Americans Evacuate Kabul via Charter Flight: US State Department
[EpochTimes] More than 20 Americans were on board a Qatar
...an emirate on the east coast of the Arabian Peninsula. It sits on some really productive gas and oil deposits, which produces the highest per capita income in the world. They piss it all away on religion, financing the Moslem Brotherhood and several al-Qaeda affiliates. Home of nutbag holy manYusuf al-Qaradawi...
Airways flight from Afghanistan to Doha on Sept. 19 and have safely evacuated the Taliban
...the Pashtun equivalent of men...
-controlled country, the U.S. State Department confirmed on Monday.

"We can confirm that a Qatar Airways flight departed from Kabul ... with 21 U.S. citizens and 48 lawful permanent residents on board," State Department spokesperson Ned Price said in a statement.

"We are thankful to Qatari authorities, who continue to coordinate these flights with the Taliban," he added. "As we have stated before, we will continue to help U.S. citizens, lawful permanent residents, and Afghans affiliated with the U.S. government to depart Afghanistan."

The latest departure was the fourth Qatari chartered flight carrying civilians from Afghanistan to Qatar since U.S. forces withdrew from the war-torn nation last month after the country’s swift takeover by Taliban bad boys.

Qatari assistant foreign minister Lolwah Rashid al-Khater said that besides Afghans and Americans on board the airliner, citizens from Germany, Belgium, Ireland, Canada, La Belle France, Italia, Britannia, Finland, and the Netherlands were also part of the evacuation operation.

Khater said that "more than 230 passengers" were on board the Sept. 19 flight. The evacuees will initially stay in a compound in Doha, the capital of Qatar, which is currently hosting Afghans and other evacuees.

"Qatar will continue its collaboration with international partners on efforts that ensure freedom of movement in Afghanistan while working with various parties on the ground towards more general progress in the country moving forward," a Qatari official who was not identified said, Rooters reported.

On Sept. 18, one day before the latest Qatar Airways flight departed Kabul, the U.S. State Department confirmed that 28 Americans have been flown out of Afghanistan since the full withdrawal of U.S. troops.

"We can confirm that a Qatar Airways charter flight departed from Kabul yesterday with 28 U.S. citizens and 7 lawful permanent residents on board," Price said in a statement, suggesting that the evacuation succeeded because of the Taliban’s cooperation.

UNHCR: 42 Europe Bound Migrants Returned to Libya
[LIBYAREVIEW] On Wednesday, the United Nations
...a formerly good idea gone bad...
High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) announced that 42 Europe-bound asylum-seekers and migrants colonists were returned to Tripoli
...a confusing city, one end of which is located in Lebanon and the other end of which is the capital of Libya. Its chief distinction is being mentioned in the Marine Hymn...
. Among them were four children and eight women, of whom two were pregnant.UNHCR added that the majority of the asylum-seekers were from Nigeria, Sudan, Yemen
...an area of the Arabian Peninsula sometimes mistaken for a country. It is populated by more antagonistic tribes and factions than you can keep track of...
, and Egypt. "UNHCR and International Rescue Committee (IRC) provided assistance and medical aid to all survivors," it tweeted.

Libya has become the preferred point of departure for migrants colonists wanting to cross the Mediterranean towards European shores, since the 2011 uprising toppled leader Muammar Qadaffy
...The late megalomaniac dictator of Libya, admired everywhere for his garish costumes, funny hats, harem of cutie bodyguards, and incoherent ravings. As far as is known, he is the only person who's ever declared jihad on Switzerland...
.

According to the International Organization for Migration (IOM), more than 22,000 illegal migrants colonists, including women and kiddies, have been rescued during 2021. Hundreds of others have died or gone missing off the Libyan coast on the dangerous central Mediterranean route.

Rescued migrants colonists end up inside overcrowded reception centers across Libya, despite repeated international calls to close these centers down. In traffickers’ camps as well as official detention centers, thousands of migrants colonists are tortured for extortion purposes, and women often suffer sexual violence. "Many migrants colonists who had departed from the Libyan coast claimed that they have been beaten and tortured in the centers where they were detained prior to leaving," a nurse working for MSF told Italia’s news website ANSA.

Illegal immigrants crossing the English Channel near Dover (Video)
It has been a long time coming, but the Britain First vessel 'Alfred the Great' has finally started a series of operations in the English Channel to report on illegal migrant crossings.

A Britain First team spent most of the day criss-crossing the Channel today filming our useless Border Force and RNLI bringing back hundreds of illegal immigrants to the port of Dover.

Many lessons were learned today and these will be put to good use in future operations in the Channel.

Britain First plans to bring you the unfiltered and shocking truth of what is happening at Dover.

Caribbean-Latin America
19,000 migrants amassed in Colombia near Panama border
[AlAhram] Haitians form a significant portion of the tens of thousands of migrants colonists who have arrived at the border between Mexico and the United States in recent months, posing a headache for US President Joe The Big Guy Biden
...46th president of the U.S. Sleazy Dem machine politician, paterfamilias of the Biden Crime Family, the guy who bungled Afghanistan...
's administration


Some 19,000 migrants colonists, mainly Haitians, are amassed on the north coast of Colombia, from where they hope to cross to Panama and find a route to the United States, an official in Bogota said Wednesday.

Some have been stranded for weeks in the coastal town of Necocli in the northwestern Antioquia department, waiting for seats on boats that cross the Gulf of Uraba by boat to Acandi, which borders Panama.

There are only 250 boat tickets available every day, said Colombia's human rights
...which are usually open to widely divergent definitions...
ombudsman Carlos Camargo.

He reported that a mission "evaluating the migrant crisis" at Necocli -- a village of 45,000 people -- counted some 19,000 undocumented migrants colonists there.

Most were Haitians, Camargo said on Twitter.

Haitians form a significant portion of the tens of thousands of migrants colonists who have arrived at the border between Mexico and the United States in recent months, posing a headache for US President Joe Biden's administration.

Waiting out the bottleneck in Colombia, migrants colonists rent private rooms or homes or camp on the beach, depending on their means.

Some 11,500 people have bought tickets to make the boat trip by October 13, and a further unknown number of people unable to purchase tickets have resorted to other forms of "illegal" crossings," said Camargo.

Once across, the migrants colonists start, on foot, the dangerous trek from Acandi through the Darien jungle, where they battle snakes, steep ravines, swollen rivers, tropical downpours and criminals often linked to drug trafficking.

In a recent report, Doctors Without Borders (known by its French acronym MSF) said criminal gangs in the jungle prey on migrants colonists, and assaults and rapes are common.

Under an agreement between the governments of Colombia and Panama, no more than 650 migrants colonists are allowed to make the trip daily.

More than 50,000 people have crossed the border Colombia-Panama border so far this year.

Once in Panama, MSF reported last month, migrants colonists are held for processing and deportation.

Those with pending administrative or judicial processes -- refugee applications, for example, or giving testimony against human traffickers -- can be held at a migrant reception center for weeks or months.

"The centers are a source of complaints, as those who are held there face inadequate food and shelter, a lack of clean water and showers, and no means to communicate with their families," MSF said.

The Colombia-Panama border is a key crossing for migrants colonists hoping to make a new life in the United States, often fleeing poverty and violence in their home countries.

Last year, a steady influx of migrants colonists from Colombia northward dried up due to coronavirus (aka COVID19 or Chinese Plague)
...the twenty first century equivalent of bubonic plague, only instead of killing off a third of the population of Europe it kills 3.4 percent of those who notice they have it. It seems to be fond of the elderly, especially Iranian politicians and holy men...
travel restrictions and border closures.

But officials say there have been several thousand new arrivals at Necocli in recent weeks.

Given the multiple Mass Invasion groups we are seeing "pop-up" suddenly without warning.

#2  Professional liars.

Now The NY Times and Politico are very quietly admitting they lied about Hunter Biden's laptop; that the "60 Intelligence Officers" saying that the laptop "bears all the hallmarks of Russian disinformation" nonsense was of course a blatant lie; and that Twitter and Facebook execs -- former (and current) Dem hacks, all of em -- conspired to keep the truth of Hunter's laptop and his/his father's clear, obvious corruption away from the voting public last fall.

This was the most egregious of all the crimes committed in the 2020 joke of an election.

And now the Times and Politico have admitted what we knew.

They stole the election by spiking the biggest story of the decade. Election fraud on a grand scale.

Haitian deportees assaulted US pilots
Haitian deportees assaulted U.S. pilots and Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) agents on deportation flights arriving in Port-au-Prince, Haiti, on Tuesday, according to a report from NBC News.

NBC News reported the incident began after a flight of single adult men arrived on the tarmac, citing a source familiar with internal reports.

Several of the men then stormed to another flight that recently arrived and was carrying families. On the second flight, the men allegedly attacked pilots of the plane and three ICE officers.

The officers suffered non-life threatening injuries, NBC reported.

A spokesperson for DHS told The Hill in a statement that some adult migrants caused "two separate disruptions" on the tarmac after deplaning in Port-au-Prince. Haitian crowd control officers responded to both incidents and "resolved the situation."

"ICE fully respects the rights of all people to peacefully express their opinions, while continuing to perform its immigration enforcement mission consistent with our priorities, federal law and agency policy," the spokesperson said.

The spokesperson did not give further detail about the "disruptions."

The incident comes as the U.S. has ramped up deportation flights to Haiti after over 10,000 migrants crowded under a bridge in Del Rio, Texas.

The Biden administration resumed deportation flights last week, sparking backlash from the international community. The optics worsened on Monday after viral footage from the U.S.-Mexico border showed officers on horseback seeking to push Haitians back across the border.

Despite the backlash, Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas told a Senate panel on Tuesday that there were no plans to cease flights.

"We are increasing the frequency and number of the repatriation flights each day," Mayorkas said. "And we're hoping that what we are doing now serves as a deterrent because it backs up the words that we have spoken since the very outset: that irregular migration is not the way to enter the United States. It will not work."

Stunning Interview Sees China Warn "23 Million Australians" That US Pact Now Makes Them "Target" For Nuclear Attack
During an Australian TV primetime segment this week, the well-known China-based expert Victor Gao, who is vice president of the Center for China and Globalization and once served as communist leader Deng Xiaoping's translator, issued a chilling scenario and shock to his Aussie audience over the controversial AUKUS defense pact between the US, Australia and the UK.

Gao bluntly warned that the deal which will see Washington give Canberra nuclear submarine technology now makes all of Australia a target for nuclear strike:

"The watershed moment will be if Australia is armed with nuclear submarines to be locally produced in Australia, Australia will lose that privilege of not being targeted with nuclear weapons by other countries," Gao warned.

#6  Is China suggesting that other other option is a minimal and survivable nuclear exchange? Because I always though that the US would probably attempt to sink mainland Asia if attacked with nukes and that would probably cause issues in Australia even if the Chinese didn't directly target them.

#2 
So he threw a cigarette disposal tube thru a window of a courthouse, broke a window resulting in maybe $500 worth of damages.

Where were the Local/State Police and Federal Courthouse Police, when he should have gotten a instant Major dose of Whoop Ass?

Hell even Congress says it is OK to shoot unarmed females for less cause.

EITHER WAY
This is nothing a "Political / Media Figure Head" arrest and conviction for a $500 window. But does nothing to address the BLOM Riot Organizers at all.

The arrest and conviction likely, when done start to finish, will cost the Taxpayers over $100,000.

QUESTION:
What about arresting or Civil Court Lawsuits against BLOM Organizing Leadership, behind the riot? We know many have made some serious $$$$$ running BLOM.

6 J&K government employees sacked for terror links
[OneIndia] Six employees of the Jammu and 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.

government were sacked for allegedly having terror links. They were also accused of having links with over ground workers.

Two among those dismissed were police constables. A few days back the J&K administration had issued instructions on the periodic character and antecedents verification of babus government employees.

The instructions said that the general administration department of every employee is mandatorily required to maintain absolute integrity, honesty and allegiance to the Union of India and its Constitution. The instruction also said that the employee shall not do anything unbecoming of a government servant.

The J&K administration took the decision after a designated committee mandated to scrutinise sensitive cases under Article 311 (2) (c) of the Constitution. The committee recommended the removal of the six employees over terror links.

Under this provision, the employee can be sacked of the President or the Governor, as the case may be is satisfied that it is being done under the interest of the security of the state.

It may be recalled that in July, the government had dismissed 11 of its employees. They included the sons of Hizbul Mujahideen
...Party of Holy Warriors, founded by Muhammad Ahsan Dar in September 1989. One of the Pak sock puppets waging jihad in Indian Kashmir. It was originally organized as the armed wing of Jamaat-e-Islami. In 1990, Dar declared Hizbul as the sword arm of Jamaat. Hizbul murdered many of the pro-independence intelligentsia in Kashmir. After the organization was taken over by Syed Salahuddin Dar and several other ex-Hizb leaders were assassinated between 2001 and 2003...

Israel-Palestine-Jordan
Suspect remanded for 8 days over Nahariya ramming that killed police volunteer
[IsraelTimes] Driver named as Nasim Sah, contractor from Arraba and former owner of local soccer club; police accuse him of negligent homicide and abandonment of his victims

The suspect in a Tuesday car-ramming that killed a police volunteer in the northern city of Nahariya was remanded for eight days on Wednesday.

The suspect was named as contractor Nasim Sah, 44, from the Lower Galilee city of Arraba. He is the former owner of the Ahva Arraba soccer club, which is no longer active.

Prosecutors are accusing Sah of negligent homicide, abandonment of his victims, and disruption of court proceedings.

Sah’s attorney indicated during the Haifa Magistrate’s Court hearing that the defense team will argue that the incident was an accident.

Police representative Lior Harari argued during the hearing: "This is one of the most difficult incidents the Israel Police has experienced. [The suspect] rammed two coppers, one died and the other is fighting for his life in the hospital. He did it knowingly, and he escaped."

According to an unsourced report from Channel 13 news, Sah has a criminal record from a previous conviction for transporting workers from the West Bank to illegally work in Israel.

Police said that the two-man police team had arrived at the Nahariya site in the morning, after residents complained of noise and work being done during the Sukkot holiday. The work was part of a project to improve flood defenses in the city. The team also began questioning Paleostinian workers at the site to check whether they were in the country legally.

The workers called Sah, who entered into a confrontation with the police. He then allegedly entered his car and ran them over. Eyewitnesses told Hebrew media that he then reversed and ran over the two coppers again before fleeing. He was arrested several hours later, as was another suspect.

The Kan public broadcaster said that Sah had admitted to driving the offending car, but claimed he never noticed hitting anyone. The report said that officials were investigating whether the attack was premeditated.

Sah has been reported to be a building contractor and the brother of the owner of the company carrying out the construction work.

Channel 13 reported that police were also expected to check whether officials overseeing the operation had known that the construction work was being done during a holiday, as well as whether they were aware that illegal workers were being used.

Police on Tuesday night arrested two Paleostinian illegal workers suspected of being accomplices in the ramming who were allegedly at the construction site in the northern city.

Police nabbed the two suspects along with nine other illegal workers near Jerusalem in the evening. The two were taken for questioning. A third suspected accomplice is still on the lam.

The police volunteer killed was named as 32-year-old Hossam Zaghir, a Druze father of two from the town of Yarka in the north of Israel. Police said that he had been volunteering since 2016.

Zaghir’s uncle told Kan that his nephew volunteered to work the shift so that a Jewish colleague could celebrate the Jewish festival of Sukkot.

Zaghir was set to be buried at 5 p.m. Wednesday.

Police initially investigated the incident as a potential nationalistic attack, but later said that it appeared to be criminal in nature.
