ISLAMIC MILITANTS PREPARING ATTACKS ON U.S. SOIL?
Was Texas Gov. Rick Perry right after all?
Days after the administration of Barack Obama rebuked Perry for his claim that the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS) was attempting to gain entry to the United States via the porous American-Mexican border, Perry’s administration released a report doubling down on the claim.
“A review of ISIS social media messaging during the week ending August 26 shows that militants are expressing an increased interest in the notion that they could clandestinely infiltrate the southwest border of US, for terror attack,” a three-page warning from the Texas Department of Public Safety noted. “Social media account holders believed to be ISIS militants and propagandists have called for unspecified border operations.”
The Obama administration declined to validate the Texas report – saying there was no “credible threat” on the southwest border – but a separate warning issued by Washington, D.C.-based Judicial Watch seemed to support Perry’s claim.
“Islamic terrorist groups are operating in the Mexican border city of Ciudad Juarez and planning to attack the United States with car bombs or other vehicle born improvised explosive devices (VBIED),” the group alleged.
Not only that, Judicial Watch claimed federal authorities had already issued warnings and begun mobilizing resources in response to this threat.
“High-level federal law enforcement, intelligence and other sources have confirmed to Judicial Watch that a warning bulletin for an imminent terrorist attack on the border has been issued,” the Judicial Watch bulletin claimed.
The group quoted one federal source as saying the first attack on the border was “coming very soon.”
Our hunch? America’s warmongers want an attack like this to happen. Seriously … what better way to plunge America deeper into the Middle Eastern quicksand (once again) than an attack on the homeland?
More to the point, if America’s homeland is hit – should we really be surprised?
Seriously … we’re bombing these people where they live. Is it any shock they would try to bomb us where we live?
Seriously … we’re bombing these people where they live. Is it any shock they would try to bomb us where we live?
No… it’s a shock when they actually do.
I keep expecting one to jump out of the crowd and stab me in the butt with an ice pick.. and then hop a plane back to Turkey, and check into rehab.
The absurdity of your statements are completely lost on a good 75% of the population here. I enjoy them, but rest assured most are scratching their head, grunting, & complaining in their heads that you’re giving them a head ache and moving on to the next comment.
When the going gets weird the weird turn pro.
Rick Perry was right when FITS was still telling us how bad Romney would, before Obama got re-elected, the second time, and you had not figured out how bad Obamacare is.
There better be official alerts going up. But we know Obama will try awfully hard not to do that because it will yank the rug out from his amnesty plans. So they will send CIA operatives, Navy Seals teams and the like, across the broader to the town where ISIS suicide terrorist are thought to be laying in wait.
Wide Open Border …. Might as well put out a welcome mat.
Does Niki Haley know about this threat? And if so, has she send out notices of advisement? The border is hours away, of course. But for ISIS to get their hands on automobiles, they could drive anywhere in the USA once inside.
Might as well put out a welcome mat.
I’ve got a big sign in the front yard… “Welcome To Texas, ISIS conventioners!” with a US, Texas, and ISIS flag crossed in the center. I’ve got a couple of Mideast papers on the sidewalk by the mailbox in vending machines for 2 bucks a pop.
I’ve also got the concession rights for the corner in front of the Falafel Palace … I’ve got a food cart with simple and rustic fare such as m’jadarrah, lentil stew, also known as poor man’s stew, consisting of slow-cooked lentils with a sprinkling of burghul and caramelized onions and served with a side of zesty cabbage salad.
And Kkshik — a porridge made from burghul fermented with yogurt and dried in the sun on my rooftop over seven days during the fall before being ground into fine powder.
I’m going to make a *killing* – no pun intended.
“But we know Obama will try awfully hard not to do that because it will yank the rug out from his amnesty plans.”
It is fine to state your opinion but please do not fancy yourself that you speak for others as well.
And of course your opinion is ludicrous anyway.
Why so angry all the time?
He’s always angry because hi boy is always wrong. Having voted for an idiot twice would make me crazy too.
“He’s always angry because hi boy is always wrong. Having voted for an idiot twice would make me crazy too.”
I voted for the winner twice. Voting for the loser twice makes you look like a loser, loser.
Just because he wins an election doesn’t make him honest, good, or right. Nixon comes to mind….
Ronald Reagan, George Bush and Dick Cheney also come to mind.
(Insert any politician’s name here) _______ also comes to mind–irrespective of party and affiliation.
“Why so angry all the time?”
I’m “angry” because I do not expect a person to say that they speak for a group of people? And I’m angry because I disagree with someone? Whatever! LOL
I’m petrified! ISIS is coming to the Upstate! Let me get my gun. I need to protect my home from Islamic fundamentalists.
Fits has just reported that the “upstate” is already under attack from 60 homeless “brothers and sisters” , sleeping under a bridge in Greenville. Tom and Kathryn are apparently going to let em starve.
Not worried about ISIS.
Oh my god…what should I fear more…Muslim fanatics or bums? Oh, pardon me. I forgot. Bums isn’t politically correct terminology these days. The “homeless” is proper. I guess they’re a greater threat, after all they are closer and probably black!!!
Ahhh!! All those bumfights were just training! Like all those athletic “marching clubs” in 1930s Germany.
dude… hide the pot!
Panic is spreading on Facebook now.
“Islamic terrorist groups are operating in the Mexican border city of Ciudad Juarez and planning to attack the United States with car bombs or other vehicle born improvised explosive devices (VBIED). High-level federal law enforcement, intelligence and other sources have confirmed to Judicial Watch that a warning bulletin for an imminent terrorist attack on the border has been issued. Agents across a number of Homeland Security, Justice and Defense agencies have all been placed on alert and instructed to aggressively work all possible leads and sources concerning this imminent terrorist threat.”
“Specifically, Judicial Watch sources reveal that the militant group Islamic State of Iraq and Greater Syria (ISIS) is confirmed to now be operating in Juarez, a famously crime-infested narcotics hotbed situated across from El Paso, Texas. Violent crimes are so rampant in Juarez that the U.S. State Department has issued a number of travel warnings for anyone planning to go there.”
Intelligence officials have picked up radio talk and chatter indicating that the terrorist groups are going to “carry out an attack on the border,” according to one JW source. “It’s coming very soon,” according to this high-level source, who clearly identified the groups planning the plots as “ISIS and Al Qaeda.” An attack is so imminent that the commanding general at Ft. Bliss, the U.S. Army post in El Paso, is being briefed, another source confirms.
“Islamic terrorist groups are operating in the Mexican border city of Ciudad Juarez
Probably figuring out ways to bilk unsuspecting tourists out of an extra 50 bucks on those crappy onyx chess sets to pay for their cell phone calls back to Dad, and Irmaline Shrum back in sunny Iraq… (wistufully – it was a beautiful thang)
(from the kitchen, with slight echo from open refrigerator)… “Hey! did you guys know we’re out of BEER?”
The greatest danger is the American lone wolf or Al Qaeda/ISIS funded American sympathizers.
Here is a list of Al Qaeda targets.
“There is a suggested list of targets for lone-wolf, or individually executed, terror attacks, including New York’s Times Square, casinos and night clubs in Las Vegas, oil tankers and trains, the Georgia Military College, the U.S. Air Force Academy in Colorado Springs, and General Atomics defense contractor in San Diego.”
“casinos and night clubs in Las Vegas . . . the Georgia Military College”
I fail to catch the downside.
LOL. The Kurds felt the same way about the Free Syrian Army, the Arab Christians, the Shiites and the Yazidis. I hope someone will stop them before they come for Soft Sigh.
“Seriously …we’re bombing these people where they live. Is it any shock they would try to bomb us where we live?”
The ridiculous moral equivalency in this juvenile and uninformed statement is perhaps one of the dumbest things ever written in a FITS article, and THAT is a tall fucking statement. If the libertarian position is that no one, at any time, under any circumstances should ever be bombed, fine. Let’s talk about that (but I don’t think that’s the position). If there are some exceptions, then let’s talk about why the bizarro, murderous, wackjobs of IS don’t merit a couple of warheads on the foreheads. If they don’t need bombing, then I would suggest that the tin-foil hat wing of the Libertarian party falls back to the “nobody gets a bomb” position and hopes for the best.
You are one very sick puppy, man.
“Nobody gets a bomb” is not what I said. Nor is it what I’ve ever said.
To wit: “… if there is indisputable evidence of a credible threat to the American homeland we absolutely support the use of overwhelming force to eliminate that threat. We also support armed neutrality to protect our vital national interests – which consists of a well-trained, well-equipped military force (one in which projects are driven by need and effectiveness, not pork barrel politics and special interest pay-offs).”

We should have perp-walked those cock suckers for invading Iraq.
“We should have perp-walked those cock suckers for invading Iraq.”
Perp-walked, water-boarded, and made them wear black-face and stand in the road in Ferguson with a box of cigars
Let’s stick to what we’re talking about…what you said was exactly what I quoted. Who can logically argue with generalized statements like the one you pulled from the Clinton article, above? The rub is how one defines America’s “vital national interests.” Back to what I said…
The statement I addressed plainly infers that the IS wants to bomb us simply because we’re bombing them, which is oversimplified silliness. The IS extremists would bomb us no matter what we do, and if you doubt that all you have to do is ask one. Unlike the US media (and libertarian extreme isolationists) they will tell you that Islamic Jihadists strongly desire to kill anyone who isn’t an Islamic Jihadist, whether they’re being “bombed” or not. I’ve talked to dozens and dozens of these knuckleheads, and they’re very happy to explain to you why the US (as their “far enemy”) represents a valid target for the Jihad. It has little to do with being bombed, and much more to do with their sense that America supports a generalized war against Islam (their extreme version of it, that is)..
The actions (on our part) that constitute this “war on Islam” seldom involve us bombing anyone, but more often include such egregious actions as supporting Israel’s right to exist, quartering infidel soldiers in their holy lands (such as our small, invited by the host country, “non-bombing” footprint in places like Saudi Arabia and Jordan), and the like. The neo-con drivel about Islamists attacking us because they hate our freedom is silly and oversimplified, too. The Islamist extremist movement is a complicated bitch, but the psychology behind radicalization and the dynamics of the movement writ large have both been studied extensively. No serious scholar thinks that simply pulling out the one or two hot zones where bombs are falling would somehow placate the folks who behead infidels, stone women on chastity issues, and intentionally blow up babies as apolitical statement. UBL explained a good bit of this after the 9/11 attacks, but it’s easier for neo-cons to say they hate our way of life, just as it’s easier for isolationists to say it’s only because we’re meanies. The ground truth is more complex, which makes it harder to discuss rationally, especially here.
This Isis/ISIL craziness is simply the continuation of the neo-con re-drawing of the Middle East. The US is fighting a proxy war in Ukraine for control of the European gas lines that bring Siberian and Central Asia gas to western Europe while the Isis area of occupation is sitting exactly were a new gas pipeline would go to bring Central Asia gas fields into southern Europe through Turkey thereby reducing Russian influence on Western Europe. Watch the ball boys.
Bombs do wonderful work in the right places. Many drone strikes should be in the USA.
Will, you know I’m going to disagree with you on this one. These individuals have the moral capacity of a rat, and will undoubtedly decide it is in their best interests to try and tip the balances of fate. They’re already making incursions into Iran, and other neighboring countries, and getting fellow mouth breathers to follow their direction. They are a like the plague, they spread with the quickness of a virus, and must be destroyed with nothing but force. While I understand your sentiment, I hope you redirect your disdain for foreign involvement, with *hope*, we don’t have to become fully involved.
You mean like the mouth breathers over here? There is no shortage of mouth breathing on either side of the coming battle.
Typical. FITS sees Americans as the lowest form of humanity. No matter that we’re the most generous, freedom-giving nation in the history of the world…the self-loathing and miserable liberals sees us on the level with barbaric murderers, who kill in the name of their, and FITS’ gods…
I swear FITS, I will put together a fund drive, if you will go to ISIS-held territory and spout the stupid and immature left-wing belief that the world must do it FITS’, Sanford’s and RonPaul’s way…and see what THOSE “mouth breathers” do to you…The Stupid BullS#!* RonPaul feeds you to make you feel unique, will seem like the ignorance it is…Right before they take your head off…
“No matter that we’re the most generous, freedom-giving nation in the history of the world…”
Any proof of this? Again, more speculation and nationalism blinding you and other idiots of the real truth.
Tell me who is ahead of us? JACK!!!!!
See?? You have nothing…
It is a comforting story people in the United States tell ourselves when we feel our position in the world challenged, or when chest-thumping nationalists mount the platform to brag about “American exceptionalism”, or when we need to excuse our behavior internationally.
But is it true? How does the United States stack up against other countries in terms of human freedom?
Press Freedom: #23

The book Towards a Worldwide Index of Human Freedom attempted to rank 123 countries in terms of total human freedom. The index was composed of a weighted average of half “personal freedom” and half “economic freedom.” In 2008, the US ranked 18th in the world in personal freedom, 6th in economic freedom, and 7th overall.
Did you catch Demnt’s Heritage Foundation listing us at #10 in economic freedoms, Tango?
Soon as we fumigate Obama, and get the next Reagan in…we’ll right the ship…and hopefully put your Communist @$$ on a ship to Iran…so you can be w/ the Devil, who your worship…
I totally feel ya on the silly chest-thumping, but we have to watch using arbitrary metrics from various groups to rate places. Most of the states in the US with the highest population influx are rated pretty poorly by metrics like these. I would say that the same holds for the US- lots of folks sure seem to want to come here.
True! But the fact is: Dipshit Tango can’t support his position.
As I said, I agree with you (I was only commenting on these ratings lists that pop up on states, countries, education systems, etc.).
You’re a spineless [email protected]$$, Mike.
Why should you not look at the education system in determining the level of freedom? Democracy and education are the two primary elements essential for freedom to exist.. That is the reason they are constantly under attack by would be oligarchs.
No one is Chest Bumping. It’s standing up for right. Where pop culture-acceptance desperadoes, like you, look like [email protected]$$#$, is that you fall for the bull-S#!t…the America-haters stuff down your throat…
Bad people do not eventually see right…they pull you down into the toilet with them. Stand up for right, or get your @$$ over there on the bad end of the firing squad. If you are not willing to fight foe the best of us, and want to molly coddle the destroyers…you will die with Hitler, Stalin and the tax and steal Redcoats. …IOW: Adios, Obama…
What does the fact people are moving here have to do with it? They may not have the ability to get to a better country. Especially if you are from Mexico, Central and South America.
The problem w/ your ignorance, is that we’d have to let the fools you believe in, rule, to show you how absolutely wrong and stupid you are…and when that happens, it’s too late to save us, for the American way.
I’m not willing to let it get that far along. I’d eliminate the evil pieces of $#!* like from this society, like we had to do to democrat, anti-Constitution slaveholders, Hitler and Stalin…You’re not new, we’ve taken you out before…and you show that we’re getting close to having to do it again…Obama proves that…
See? When you can’t back your shit up, you resort to “American Hater, Communist…” Hitler and friends, for example, had the German people blinded by nationalistic “Uber Alles” crap just as you have your “We’re #1!” bullshit. I love this country, but, we’re not #1 in freedoms. Both Republican and Democratic parties made damn sure of this: Patriot Act, NSA…so, go play army with your G.I. Joe and let freedom reign.
Also, why is Mike spineless? He’s at least given a good point, you, my fine idiot of mass “hysteria” media, can go fuck yourself with a flute sideways, because you still don’t present anything but prideful speculation.
Freedom has NEVER been free. There are always tyrants, fools and the evil trying to take freedom from the wealth producers. You are Filth. You don’t believe in your country, or the best that we are. Again: you are nothing new. You represent like Hitler or Stalin, but then deny what you are.
If you are not pro-Constitution and pro-Freedom, you are Anti-American. There is nothing wrong with that, but just be warned we have gone to war to eradicate our country from the influence of fools like you. If you are ashamed of what you are, change. If you are not, admit it..but you [email protected] well better be as prepared to fight for it, as I am to eliminate the disease that you are…
Again: You are given privileges to spout your Bull-S#!* as an American citizen -if you are- but when you move to FORCE your Anti-Constitutional dogma on us, expect HARSH push back. That’s just the reality of it…
“but when you move to FORCE your Anti-Constitutional dogma on us, expect HARSH push back. That’s just the reality of it…”
Really? Where did I spout Anti-Consitutional dogma? Why can’t you just offer proof that we’re the most generous, freedom-giving nation in the history of the world…? History of the world is quite an idiotic stance, but I’ll just take history of America to hone it down for you. Me, Mike, and Johnq offered something, you just keep on bullshitting around like a complete fool.
Pardon the bad grammer and punctuation on this thread. I should start proofreading more…doing this shit during my lunch and dinner breaks doesn’t offer much time for it, though.
There is no PROOF you F*#king idiot. It’s an observation based on a knowledge of present reality and the study of history.
Offer PROOF that we’re not you F*#king leftwing piece of S#!*…and when you PROVE that there is a country more-generous and more freedom-giving, I’ll give your STUPID @$$ the money for a plane ticket there, as long as you agree to beg for a living, and spout your ignorant propaganda against that country the way you attack America…
Because you were born to the privileges my family fought to give you…does not mean you deserve them. I’m getting sick and tired of F*#king imbeciles, like you, being used by the Liberal-Tarians to bash us.
You’re just a STUPID F*#k, too dumb to juxtapose any other system, than the one the people controlling you hate, in order to empower themselves..
You’re not smart or slick. Just ignorant and easily led, sure that your antagonism makes you special….Intelligence is what is rare or unique. And you don’t have it…
“There is no PROOF you F*#king idiot. It’s an observation based on a knowledge of present reality and the study of history.”
Not a logic major, or a student of reason and articulation, are you?
Your an idiot Big T. Half the world is better off than the US now. The down slide started with Reagan’s trickle down bullshit policies and continues with the corporate war on the middle class. It’s fucking idiots like you who think they are world travelers when the cross the SC/Georgia state line that spout this kind of idiocy. Buy a plane ticket to Singapore or Sweden and see what civilized societies look like. The people are healthy and happy instead of populated by ignorant fucks like you who vote the corporate line and blame poor people for the state of our state.
Hater America Much???…is that why you are destroying it????…I’m just THRILLED you admit what you are…most of you lie about it…
These individuals have the moral capacity of a rat
and the IQ of a back water home schooled snake-handling moonshiner on crack.
We’ve let the Hatfield’s and McCoy’s civil war get out of hand.
Thanks Ignorant RonPaul, and Obama. I TOLD YOU SO!!!!
PS: Got FITS News mentioned in the lead post on SCPD today….We really tore it up yesterday (still getting steady hits) w/ that story on Spurrier specifically singling out a coach in the big Defensive meltdown.
I now see why FITS would throw up empty USC football posts , even though his just regurgitate what we already know…and have no insight or much thought behind them…People want some to read about it. We had an angle and GREAT Content. Got another on Conner Shaw to day.
The Department of Redundancy Department would like to talk with you. “…city of Ciudad Juarez …” transliteration “city of city Juarez”.
It’s no surprise ISIL has come to our border, it’s slightly less porous than those in the Middle East and as bad as it is, it’s safer – for a terrorist at least.
Frag this guy and move on.
TBG, for one, welcomes our new Islamic overlords of ISISLROTMEMEUCACARUS (Islamic State In Syria, the Levant, the Rest Of The Middle East, the Maghreb, the European Union, Central Asia, Central America and the US).
Always the Mexican border with these crazed rightwingers.
In the 30s I think, it was 30,000 Communist Jews!!
In the 50s or 60s, some much vaster number of Communist Chinese!
What simple loons.*
*BTW: does this expression come from “lunatic” or from a squawking/howling big dumb bird. I guess it doesn’t matter, both fit.
I think a bunchum were on the Aggies team that spanked the Cocks. It was terriss!
Just ask the Yazidi people who were murdered by ISIS. What did they ever do to warrant such atrocities?
Stupidity must be a new thing ? Bomb them, bomb us ! Republican idiots will kill us all !
I say bomb Sandi’s panties ASAP. Funny for u pubs. LOLO
Yeah: you would murder an innocent American for not hating his country, and loving brutal terrorists, as you do…You are the FACE of the liberal-fascist in this country…
All talk and no action. These ISIS punk terrorists don’t know what they are talking about when they mention Mexico. Mexico has a Drug War going on with tons of Police/Soldier Troops on every corner of the streets. They will get involved in a gun fight for sure and possibly get killed them. Using Mexican border to attack USA is a bad and risky strategy, I will believe it when I see it but for now it’s all a prank to scare you.. don’t believe them.
Please, somebody shoot something at somebody before McCain and Grahamnasty have a stroke.. LOL
We’re just asking that someone stand up for America to be allowed to choose its way way of life.
We’ve got Liberals on this thread, founding this website, and in the White House, who think we do not have the right to sovereignty, because it interferes w/ their right to murder the innocent. They want to define God as a hateful, Muslim demon, who has the discretion to obliterate us, if we do not worship liberalism and Islam, in hatred of Conservatives and freedom…
Just making the point that McCain and Grahamnasty have been wanting US to be involved on the wrong side twice now. (Egypt and Syria) We should have been bombing Isis for several months now. The Muslim in Chief doesn’t have a clue and won’t till a bomb goes off in a US city. Then he will blame everyone but the “radical Muslims ” . Kinda like “workplace violence”. The liberals are either extra stupid or not on our side. Either way it is scary for the country.
They’re coming. They’re coming. They’re right across the border, and an ocean, and a continent, and another ocean, and Syria and Lebanon. And they ain’t got boats, or planes, or nice luxury cars. But they’re coming. Will be here next week.
