 How illegal aliens scam their way into U.S. via fake asylum requests  
{Jeff Dunetz} ~ At the Otay Mesa port of entry in San Diego, California illegal immigrants falsely claimed “credible fear ” to be allowed to receive asylum in the United States... These illegals were coached to make the claim by the National Immigrant Youth Alliance (NIYA) and even though Customs and Border Protection (CBP) know about the scam, they have to allow illegal aliens to stay, anyway. CBP Documents released to Judicial Watch via a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request exposing both the scam and knowledge of the scam by the people charged with enforcing the border (documents embedded below). In the middle of 2014, NIYA executed this scam to bring 250 illegal aliens into the U.S. They coached the illegals to falsely claim that they had a “credible fear” of returning to their native country. Foreigners can claim asylum under five categories, based on fear of persecution over race, religion, nationality, political opinions or membership in a specific social group.

 nObama Admin Announces 144 Big Regulations Before Thanksgiving 
{James Gattuso} ~ President nObama is nothing if not predictable. Required by law to release plans for new regulations twice a year, the administration has consistently done so just before major holidays, when few are paying attention... Thus, it was no surprise to see his fall 2015 regulatory agenda released last Friday, as many Americans focused on Thanksgiving week with family and friends. A look at the agenda shows why the White House didn’t want it publicized. Over 2,000 regulations are now being written. Of these, 144 are deemed “economically significant”—that is, expected to cost Americans $100 million or more each.

 nObama’s Immigration Amnesty Plan Gets to the Supreme Court  
{Hans von Spakovsky} ~ On Friday, the U.S. Justice Department filed a 35-page petition asking the U.S. Supreme Court to review Texas v. U.S., the case filed by 26 states against President nObama’s immigration amnesty plan... The government is appealing a preliminary injunction that stopped implementation of nObama’s amnesty plan, which was issued by a federal district court and upheld by the Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals on Nov. 9. In an odd coincidence, Donald Verrilli, the solicitor general, filed the petition on the one-year anniversary of nObama’s speech to the nation on Nov. 20, 2014, where he announced his unprecedented, unilateral action to violate federal immigration law and provide lawful status and work permits to as many as five million illegal aliens.

 Prepare to Be Blindsided in 2016  
{Matthew continetti} ~ Target: Paris. More than 130 die in a terrorist attack on a Friday night in November. No one sees it coming. Global panic ensues... Suddenly the nation debates the future of the Syrian refugee program. Terrorism jumps to the front of voters’ minds. National security becomes the defining issue of the 2016 election. No one sees that coming, either. Around two weeks after the Paris attack, Turkey shoots down a Russian fighter over Syria. Vladimir Putin calls it a “stab in the back” and sends more forces to the region. Barack nObama pleads for calm. Trending on Twitter: World War III. The last month has been an object lesson in the unpredictability of politics.

 Iran Rattling Saber After Nuclear Deal  
{restoreamericanglory.com} ~ Did you ever make peace with someone only to find out they were bad-mouthing you behind your back?... Most of us leave these petty squabbles behind when we trade high school for adulthood, but we remember the lessons well. When an individual is saying one thing to your face and something else when you aren’t around, that individual is not to be trusted. You can’t always map human behavior one-to-one with the machinations of nation states, but it makes for an interesting way to view the nuclear deal between Iran and the United States. After lengthy negotiations in which the U.S. apparently gave in to Iranian demands again and again, the Islamic Republic’s Supreme Leader has shown no interest in pursuing a real diplomatic relationship with the West. Unlike that slimy character you might have known in high school, though, Ayatollah Ali Khamenei isn’t bothering to hide his true feelings about the United States. In an unverified tweet, Iran’s spiritual commander said, “US president has said he could knock out Iran’s military. We welcome no war, nor do we initiate any war, but…”   http://www.restoreamericanglory.com/freedoms/iran-rattling-saber-after-nuclear-deal/

 DHS: Inept $1 Billion Bioterror System Is All We Have  
iIGKiPnhF1dMAklHGXvRn6X12izLC-rVzxisAYPwmhgwFrF1p0YpIQDngxcKBcaf78kFet2K2YbjyqXE_bPiDHASyJrZUttEWNF_dev-MT1omrXRsm6uJW0azavXSLPAOprRbh3T=s0-d-e1-ft#%3Ca%20rel%3Dnofollow%20href= {judicialwatch.org} ~ After squandering a billion dollars—87 million in the last year alone—on a useless system to detect biological attacks, the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) insists on wasting more money on the flawed program because the government has no back up plan to deal with bioterrorism... It’s only taken 12 years and an enormous waste of public funds to figure out that the faulty system, known as BioWatch, can’t get the job done. Nevertheless, DHS apparently believes that it may eventually work properly if taxpayers keep throwing cash at it. One senior DHS official, Jim H. Crumpacker, tries to justify further investing in BioWatch by stressing that bioterrorism “remains a continuing threat to the security of our nation” and BioWatch is the government’s only “biosurveillance system designed to detect the intentional release of select aerosolized biological agents.”       http://www.judicialwatch.org/blog/2015/11/dhs-inept-1-billion-bioterror-system-is-all-we-have/

 Facts, Data, Truth – Things nObama Doesn’t Want In Doctored Intel  
{rickwells.us} ~ nObama’s clearly lying again, saying he doesn’t know what we’ll discover about what was going on with the intelligence at CENTCOM... Of course he won’t be discovering anything, he already is fully aware that he’s been requiring intelligence to be altered to fit the regime’s narrative. He may not know to what extent the truth will come out and the American people will discover what he’s been up to. With his customary pattern of obstruction and obfuscation surely already underway he’ll do everything within his power to prevent as much as possible from falling into the “wrong hands,” those of the American people. As we all know, nObama has nothing but disdain for the truth, and no personal familiarity with it. He’s going to cover up and lie in this instance just as he always does, challenging those who seek transparent, honest government to first catch him and then prove that he’s been doing what we all know or strongly suspect he’s been doing. http://rickwells.us/archives/22857

 British Prime Minister highlights Islamic State’s threat to UK, West  
{THOMAS JOSCELYN} ~ Britain’s police and security services have “disrupted no fewer than 7 terrorist plots to attack the UK” in the past 12 months, all of which “were either linked to” the Islamic State or “inspired” by the group’s propaganda, according to British Prime Minister David Cameron... The threat of such attacks has grown in recent months because the Islamic State “has a dedicated external operations structure in Syria, which is planning mass casualty attacks around the world.” Cameron’s claims were included in 24 pages of written text recently submitted to the UK parliament as part of his effort to justify the extension of British military operations from Iraq into Syria. The submission includes a 10 page memorandum from Cameron, as well as 14 pages of answers to questions posed by the UK parliament’s foreign affairs select committee. The Islamic State is referred to as ISIL (an acronym for the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant) throughout.       http://www.longwarjournal.org/archives/2015/11/british-prime-minister-highlights-islamic-state-threat-to-uk.php?utm_source=feedburner&utm_medium=email&utm_campaign=Feed%3A+LongWarJournalSiteWide+%28The+Long+War+Journal+%28Site-Wide%29%29

 Oil Jobs Lost: 250,000 And Counting, Texas To See Massive Layoffs  
{noisyroom.net} ~ Crude oil just capped off a third straight week of declines, as WTI nears the $40 per barrel threshold. Goldman Sachs is once again raising the possibility of oil dipping into the $20s per barrel... That spells more pain for the energy sector. Many companies have already slashed spending and culled their payrolls, but the total number of job losses continues to climb. According to Graves & Co., an industry consultant, oil and gas companies have laid off more than 250,000 workers around the world, a tally that will rise if oil prices remain in the dumps.

 Number of migrants illegally crossing Rio Grande sharply rises  
{JULIA PRESTON} ~ The numbers of migrants crossing the Rio Grande illegally have risen sharply in recent weeks, replaying scenes from the influx of Central American children and families in South Texas last year... Once again, smugglers are bringing hundreds of women and children each day to the Mexican banks of the river and sending them across in rafts. In a season when illegal crossings normally go down, “The numbers have started going the other way,” said Raul L. Ortiz, acting chief of the Border Patrol for the Rio Grande Valley. Since Oct. 1, official figures show, Border Patrol apprehensions of migrant families in this region have increased 150 percent over the same period last year, while the number of unaccompanied children caught by agents has more than doubled. The new flows here are smaller than the surge in the summer of 2014 but come after a year of declines in illegal crossings across the southwest border. The increases come as Americans’ concerns about border security are heightened after the Nov. 13 attacks in Paris raised fears that terrorists would try to sneak into the United States. And they are complicating the nObama administration’s efforts to reassure the country that the border is under control. Ya, right.

{townhall.com} ~ If the purpose of terrorism is to terrify, the Islamic State had an extraordinary week. Brussels, capital of the EU and command post of mighty NATO, is still in panic and lockdown.
.
"In Brussels, fear of attack lingers" was Monday's headline over The Washington Post's top story, which read:
.
"Not since Boston came to a near-standstill after the Boston Marathon bombing in 2013 has the life of a major Western city been brought to a halt this way by the fear of terrorism."
.
Below that is this headline: "After Paris, a campaign changed by fear."
.
That story is about what's happened in our presidential race: "Across the country ... have come pronouncements of anger and fear not seen after the terrorist attacks in London and Madrid -- or even in some ways after Sept. 11 2001."
.
Voters speak of "feeling more afraid of the Islamic State, more horrified by the imagery of the beheadings and other atrocities."
.
The New York Times' Roger Cohen describes the Paris he loves.
.
"They are shaken. There is a void in the streets too empty, a new suspicion in appraising glances, a wary numbness. Paris is afflicted with absences -- the dead, of course; visitors frightened away; minds frozen by fear; and tranquility lost. The city feels vulnerable."
.
"I think France is attacked above all for what it is," writes Cohen, "That in turn is terrifying. ... I don't think Paris has ever felt so precious or precarious to me as it did over the past week."
.
Terrible as the massacres were, some perspective is in order.
.
What happened on Friday the 13th is that nine fanatics of the Islamic State, using suicide vests and AK-47s, slaughtered people at restaurants, a soccer stadium and in a concert hall.
.
The death toll of 130 is being called the "worst attack on French soil since World War II."
.
Yet, from August 1914 to November of 1918, World War I, 850 French died every day for 51 months, a total of 1.3 million in four years in a country not nearly so populous as France is today.
.
On Aug. 22, 1914, some 27,000 French soldiers died resisting the German invasion. Yet France survived to dictate terms to Berlin.
.
But that France was another country than today's.
.
In our own Civil War, in a country one-tenth as populous as today, 400 Americans, North and South, died every day for four years.
.
The point of this recital is not to minimize the horror in Paris.
.
But it is to suggest that when Jeb Bush calls the attack on Paris "an organized effort to destroy western civilization," he is ascribing to our enemies in ISIS powers they do not remotely possess.
.
Indeed, the terror, fear, panic and paralysis exhibited today is in ways more alarming than the massacre itself. Russia lost twice as many people on that airliner blown up over Sinai as died in France. But Russia and Vladimir Putin do not appear to be terrorized.
.
Every week in Iraq, terrorists claim as many lives as were lost in France. In Syria's civil war, 250,000 have died. This translates into more dead every day for four years than died in Paris on Nov. 13.
.
What has happened to a West that once ruled the world?
.
By any measure -- military, economic, scientific -- the Islamic State, compared to the West, is a joke.
.
What the Islamists do have, however, is this: If they can reach the West and are willing to give up their lives, and can learn how to fire an AK-47 or construct a suicide vest, they can terrify the peoples of the West by slaughtering dozens or scores of them.
.
For 10 days, ISIS killers have dominated world news, television, print and social media. So doing, they have engendered a real fear in the heart of Western man.
.
The strength of ISIS, of the Islamist militants, of those willing to die driving the "Crusaders" out of their lands, beheading infidels, imposing sharia, attacking the West, lies in an emptiness in the soul of Western Man.
.
Many Europeans are the "hollow men" of T. S. Eliot's depiction.
.
They have repudiated their cradle faith Christianity, apologized for the sins of their fathers and sought to make reparations, embraced La Dolce Vita, materialism and hedonism, freeloaded off U.S. defense for 70 years, ceased to have children, thrown open their borders to former colonial peoples to come and repopulate the continent, and turned their back on patriotism to celebrate diversity and globalism.
.
They invited the world in. And the world is coming to enjoy the lavish fruits of their welfare states and, one day, will be using the West's concept of one-man, one-vote to rule the countries that ruled their ancestors.
.
The colonized are slowly becoming the conquerors.
.
The challenge of ISIS is not entirely unhealthy. It will tell us whether Europe has the will to survive.
.
As for Paris, time to move on. For, given the triumph this has been for ISIS, more such massacres are inevitable.
