Muslim Who Served in U.S. Air Force Gets 35 Years for Trying to Join ISIS
The left thinks President Donald is nothing but a discriminatory Islamophobe for wanting to close borders for a temporary time to keep out travelers from terror hot spots around the world — terror hot spots that share the common denominator of being populated by mostly Muslims.
Well, it’s mostly Muslims who are committing the acts of terror. Is that Trump’s fault?
Anyhow, note to those who think Trump’s off his rocker for wanting to protect America’s borders: A Muslim who actually served in the U.S. Air Force was just given a 35 year sentence for trying to join ISIS.
The wolves are at our doors, folks.
Even the mainstream can’t dismiss this story.
“A US Air Force veteran convicted for attempting to join ISIS was sentenced Wednesday to 35 years in prison.“Tairod Pugh, 49, from New Jersey, was found guilty in 2016 on federal charges of trying to give material support to ISIS and of obstruction of justice, according to the US Justice Department indictment.“‘The defendant turned his back on his country, and the military he once served, to attempt to join a brutally violent terrorist organization committed to the slaughter of innocent people throughout the world,’ Acting United States Attorney Bridget Rohde said in a statement released on Wednesday.“Prosecutors had presented evidence that the former aircraft mechanic was traveling from Egypt to Turkey in January 2015. Investigators say Pugh was carrying a laptop computer and four USB drives that he had stripped of their plastic casings in an effort to destroy their contents and thereby make them unavailable to investigators. He was denied entry and Turkish authorities returned him to Egypt.“Foreign government officials quickly deported Pugh to the United States, where the FBI closely monitored him, relying in part on a covert undercover employee who encountered Pugh at New York’s John F. Kennedy International Airport, according to the Justice Department.“Pugh was arrested on January 16, 2015, in Asbury Park, New Jersey.“Prosecutors also alleged that investigators discovered a letter on Pugh’s desktop computer saying he wanted to ‘use the talents and skills given to me by Allah to establish and defend the Islamic States,’ and a chart of crossing points between Turkey and Syria, where ISIS controls some territory.”
Can we get a little common sense response to the terrorist threat facing our nation, please?
But the left is so bent on achieving their open borders’ dreams, they’re willing to take the risk of terrorists infiltrating even our military. This isn’t a war simply against ISIS, or sharia, or Islam — it’s a war against the Democrats, the left, the progressives in U.S. politics.
