Reader says ,”One is left wondering whether this is just another form of birth tourism… “

” It’s actually an interesting legal question. Who, among those born within the United States of America to a non-citizen mother and a non-citizen father, does NOT meet the requirements for U.S. citizenship set forth in the 14th Amendment of the U.S. Constitution? In this instance, the jurisdictional “exception” to which the U.S. government authorities are pointing applies to children born to foreign diplomats. Her rejoinder is said to be that her father’s status as a foreign diplomate ended a month before she was born. Well heck! Who knew you could convert your soon-to-be-born child into an anchor baby simply by arranging for your home country to temporarily “fire” you a few weeks before your child is born, only to reinstate you shortly thereafter? One is left wondering whether this is just another form of birth tourism… “

Hackensack NJ, the Trump administration has denied a New Jersey-born woman’s request to return to the United States after she left to join the Islamic State group.

In a brief statement, Secretary of State Mike Pompeo gave no details as to how the administration made their determination.

“Ms. Hoda Muthana is not a U.S. citizen and will not be admitted into the United States,” he said. “She does not have any legal basis, no valid U.S. passport, no right to a passport nor any visa to travel to the United States.”

Hoda Muthana was born in Hackensack and raised in Alabama. She left the United States in 2014 to join the Islamic State in Syria after becoming radicalized.

Muthana wants to return to the U.S. with her young son, but that request was denied.

the staff of the Ridgewood blog

Asbury Park NJ, Tairod Pugh, a former US Air Force mechanic who was arrested in Asbury Park (Monmouth County) in January 2015 for attempting to provide material support to ISIS, was sentenced in federal court in Brooklyn last week to 35 years in prison. His conviction, in March 2016, was the first in a trial by jury for attempting to travel to Syria to join ISIS. Pugh’s military experience, which dated back more than 25 years, would have been of limited value to ISIS. However, his experience as an aircraft mechanic and an avionics technician was current, and could have been of value to the group in planning a terrorist attack.

Kathy Griffin Channels ISIS and New Jersey Still Votes for McClellan

Kathy Griffin Channels ISIS

June 1,2017

the staff of the Ridgewood blog

Ridgewood NJ, so far left “comedian”  Kathy Griffin Channels ISIS, and the Democrat Mayor of New York City sponsors a convicted terrorist as grand marshal of the Puerto Rican day parade .

In July of 2016 Democrat critic and Center for Security Policy founder Frank Gaffney said on SiriusXM radio , “I’m sorry for Democrats – I used to be one myself – who are now being completely disenfranchised by a party that is aligned with our enemies, and not with America,” Gaffney declared. “They will doom all of us, if they had their way.”

In Dinesh D’Souza: The secret history of the Democratic Party , D’Souza says Andrew Jackson established the Democratic Party as the party of theft.  He mastered the art of stealing land from the Indians and then selling it at giveaway prices to white settlers.

D’Souza goes on Democrats like Senator John C. Calhoun invented a new justification for slavery, slavery as a “positive good.”  For the first time in history, Democrats insisted that slavery wasn’t just beneficial for masters; they said it was also good for the slaves.

Later the Ku Klux Klan was founded in 1866 in Pulaski, Tennessee by a group of former confederate soldiers; its first grand wizard was a confederate general who was also a delegate to the Democratic National Convention.  The Klan soon spread beyond the South to the Midwest and the West and became, in the words of historian Eric Foner, “the domestic terrorist arm of the Democratic Party.”

So I guess it is no surprise that the Democrat party of today represents anti American sentiments of ISIS , supports terrorism, pro illegal immigrant, is anti free speech, pro state-ism, and anti freedom .  While the Democrats along with their union allies are deeply entrenched in New Jersey  it may behoove many readers to remember that New Jersey voted for George B. McClellan for  president and not Abraham Lincoln . Yes in the election of 1864 McClellan won only 3 states , and yes one state was New Jersey.

NJ Department of Home land Security ,ISIS: Call for Ramadan Attacks

Boston-bombing-commons-Wikimedia-2

in anti terror circles it’s euphemistically called the ,”Ramadan bomb-a-thon “

May 26, 2017
the staff of the Ridgewood blog

Ridgewood NJ, State of New Jersey Department of Homeland Security issues a Ramadan warning and repeat there are no known or credible threats to New Jersey in relation to ISIS at this time.

On May 25, ISIS released a video calling on supporters to conduct assaults and justified the killing of innocents during Ramadan, the most sacred month in Islam, which runs from May 27 to June 24. Historically, ISIS and its predecessor groups have called for an offensive campaign during this month.

The recent message encourages targeting civilians in the West, claiming that their deaths would serve as retribution for casualties in Muslim-majority countries. In 2015 and 2016, the group’s now-deceased spokesman, Abu Muhammad al-Adnani, urged followers to escalate attacks during Ramadan, encouraging those unable to travel to Iraq and Syria to conduct operations in the West—“The smallest action you do in the heart of their land is dearer to us than the largest action by us.”

Since 2006, ISIS and its predecessor group, al-Qa’ida in Iraq, have engaged in Ramadan campaigns, marked by complex coordinated operations in multiple countries throughout the month. In 2016, the Pulse nightclub shooting in Orlando and a bombing in Baghdad, killing 49 and 323 respectively, occurred during Ramadan. In 2015, attacks conducted within hours of each other targeted tourists at a Tunisian beach resort, killing 38, and worshipers at a Shia mosque in Kuwait, resulting in 27 fatalities.

During Ramadan, Muslims fast from sunrise to sunset and engage in increased religious observance. Traditionally, Muslims gather at mosques for evening feasts, known as Iftar, and nightly prayers. The month concludes with a three-day holiday, Eid al-Fitr, during which prayers and celebrations will be held at mosques, high schools, and parks throughout New Jersey.

There are no known or credible threats to New Jersey in relation to ISIS’s statement.NJOHSP encourages residents to report suspicious activity to local law enforcement and by calling 1-866-4-SAFE-NJ or by emailing tips@njohsp.gov.
