Memorial Day weekend begins today. People use this as a weekend to party, eat cheap hot dogs, do keg stands, and thank the military for allowing us the freedom to seldom act like idiots.
Then there’s this guy John Kelly who put a realistic dent in the fun before it starts. He’s the Homeland Security Chief and he gave us the heads up that a terror attack could happen at any time. While that’s something we already know, we’re more interested in what else Kelly knows.
It almost seems like the the way Kelly says this isn’t in the sense that we all know terror attacks happen at random moments. But it was more like he knew something specific was in the air and it left us all wondering what it could be. Or where, who, what, etc…
Homeland Security Chief John Kelly offered a dire assessment of the terror situation in America on Friday, just as many Americans were preparing for holiday travel.
Kelly said a terror attack ‘can happen almost here any time’ during a Fox News appearance.
Recalling a conversation he was having off-air with Fox & Friends host Steve Doocy, Kelly said from the famous Fox couch, ‘I was telling Steve on the way in here, if, if he knew what I know about terrorism, he’d never leave the house in the morning.’
The first reaction is for us to tell Kelly to tell us what he knows. Obviously if there’s information that pertains to terrorists, then he certainly can’t tell all the details to the public. If he does that, then he reveals that he knows what’s planned and the terrorists change their plans. It wouldn’t make sense for him to reveal what he knows and allow people to respond or react to it. It also doesn’t make sense for him to provide purposeful misinformation in hopes that terrorists respond to that, because that might create unnecessary fear and panic in the American citizens. So what does he do? He tells us what we already know and leaves it at that. It still leaves you wondering though, right?
He quickly added, ‘But the good news is, again, we have the finest men and women in uniform, out of uniform, police officers, local law enforcement, New York City cops protecting us.’
Friday marks the start of Memorial Day weekend in the US, a holiday dedicated that’s formally dedicated to the nation’s fallen but many Americans use for vacation.
Kelly’s terror warning came after terrorists carried out four attacks in one week across Europe, Asia and Africa.
Is that a slip up? He said New York City cops. Is there a terror attack planned in NYC this weekend? If he had just said “cops” without specifying the NYC police, then what would we think? Sure, he may have been IN NYC at the time and was simply talking about protection in his locality, but that still leaves some minds wandering and wondering what he knows.
Do we want to know more information? I think we do, but I also think we don’t. Everyone loves knowing everything, but think about this from the mind of a terrorist. If they think we’re expecting an attack in NYC, then maybe they change their mind and attack San Francisco. If NYC increases security, then why would they still attack when there’s less chance of success? What happens if every city is on high alert and all eyes are open and watching everyone’s activity?
What does Chief John Kelly know about terrorism that could hurt or haunt us? I’m sure Kelly on tells people who are on the “need to know” basis and that certainly isn’t the average citizen. We may want that information, but there’s no reason it needs to be in anyone’s hands except the people who are paid to provide security to our country and thwart attacks before they happen.
Hopefully DHS Chief Kelly’s information goes towards protection of American citizens and is used in the best way possible. If his information, whatever it may be, prevents at least one attack, then he’s already saved people. Just don’t forget – terrorists can strike at anytime and anywhere. Always keep your eyes open as needed.

BREAKING! They Did It… These Four Guys Are HEROES!
Trump is cheering & so are we!
Real life heroes exist, and there was several of them on the day that a terrorist detonated a pipe bomb upon himself prematurely. He blew up his crotch and injured some innocent bystanders as the botched explosion could have been much worse. And it almost was much worse because the triggered terrorist could’ve detonated the explosive device further, but he was injured and apprehended extremely fast by several hard working American heroes.
Four police officers arrested the terrorist, a 27-year-old Bangladeshi ISIS supporter named Akayed Ullah, before he could detonate anything else or cause massive amounts of bloodshed and human life loss. The four heroic men are heralded as heroes for preventing further destruction and saving dozens of lives.
The police officers of the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey who are labeled as heroes have quite a heroic background behind them. Three of them have previous military experience in vastly different areas, and one of them is a 20-year-veteran of the force.
American Military News reports:
“Four police officers with Port Authority of New York and Jersey – including one Army veteran and two Marine veterans – are being hailed as heroes for taking down the New York City bombing suspect before he was able to do any more damage after initially detonating a pipe bomb underground at the Port Authority Bus Terminal on Monday.
The officers are identified as Marine veteran Sean Gallagher; Marine bomb technician veteran Anthony Manfredini; Drew Preston, a soldier who served in Afghanistan and Iraq, and has served three combat tours; and John “Jack” Collins, a lawyer who has served as a police officer for about 20 years.”
When it comes to hiring the best, brightest, and most reliable, then it’s evident that the force in New York did a great job when they hired these four amazing men who saved lives that nearly harrowing day in New York. To have a Marine veteran in Gallagher on the team provides leadership, experience, and grit that Marines can provide.
Having a bomb technician like Anthony Manfredini allows the police force to ensure critical and protective skills that would benefit every police force in America. His experience will enable him to prevent explosives from detonating. Drew Preston’s involvement in Afghanistan and Iraq allow him to be resilient, tough and know what it’s like to be in the hot spots of hostile areas, which is the experience that can provide leadership and beyond for those he works with. John “Jack” Collins’ experience of 20 years on the force provides on-hands information and a plethora of knowledge that can only be gained by spending time doing the job. These four men together are a fantastic group of police officers with an astounding background.
Here’s more about what happened:
“Manfredini was first at the scene when the pipe bomb detonated, after noticing people running from the passageway. Manfredini called out over the radio for others to join him as smoke filled the passageway.
Manfredini encountered the suspect, Akayed Ullah, on the floor with what he described as shrapnel wounds, said Bobby Egbert, spokesperson for the Port Authority Police Benevolent Association.
The officers noticed wires coming out of Ullah’s jacket and into his pants, according to Egbert. The officers quickly took action when Ullah began reaching for a cell phone, realizing that it could be used as a detonator. During the struggle, the officers managed to separate Ullah from the cell phone.
When Ullah was in custody, the police officers helped people safely evacuate from the area.”
“Today, four courageous Port Authority police officers risked their lives confronting an armed terrorist to protect others from harm,” said Port Authority Police Benevolent Association President Paul Nunziato. “I am so thankful there was no loss of life and I could not be prouder of our Port Authority police officers, their actions and dedication to their sworn duty.”
An explosion at Manhattan’s extremely busy transportation hub, the Port Authority Bus Terminal, was reported around 7:20 a.m. EST, the height of rush hour.
NYPD sources have said it was a pipe bomb explosion in an underground passageway that connects the 7th and 8th Avenue tracks, and that the suspect might have been on his way toward Times Square.
When you read about police officers running to the scene of a terrorist bombing, while others run away, is something that should make every American proud of these hard-working men who are most likely underpaid. It takes a strong person to become a police officer in America. There’s so much scrutiny towards police, often from leftists, who continuously dismiss the officers, treat them horribly, and refuse to admit how hard it is to be a cop in such a hostile country filled with criminals. But the police continue pressing on, fighting every day, and committing heroic acts of bravery with such little acknowledgment.
It’s about time that everyone in America stands up for the police because they always stand up for us when we call them.

BREAKING! Trump Just Revealed Shocking Method NYC Terrorists Got Into The USA
This has to end, now!
Just a couple months after a radical Muslim terrorist ran down pedestrians on a New York City street on Halloween, another deranged Muslim named Akayed Ullah attempted to steal more innocent lives in the bustling city. Thankfully, Ullah was not skilled in his terrorist ways, and his homemade pipe bomb that he strapped to his body malfunctioned only injured the would-be suicide bomber.
Now, literally after the smoke has cleared from the failed terrorist attack people are wondering how in the hell this guy entered the United States, and now we may have some answers thanks to President Trump.
There is a reason that President Trump wanted a stricter vetting process for people coming to America from countries with ties to terrorism, and voila, here it is. The 27-year-old Bangladeshi man identified as 27-year-old Akayed Ullah was allowed into the country thanks to a little thing called chain immigration.
You see how this is works is one family member is approved and receives a green card which then the approved family member is allowed to bring their family members with them. The issue with that is that these family members are not properly vetted and then allowed to enter the country without knowing anything about them. So, common sense dictates that these people should be vetted which is precisely what President Trump would like to do, and this could be just the push that is needed to ensure that the vetting process is followed from here on out.
Here is more from Daily Mail:
President Donald Trump said Monday a bomb blast in Manhattan highlights the need for an immigration overhaul – as the man arrested was revealed to be part of a large Bangladeshi family sponsored by his aunt or uncle.
Trump said that the U.S. ‘must fix its lax immigration system, which allows far too many dangerous, inadequately vetted people’ into the country.
The Republican president pointed to his controversial travel ban as an example of the kind of policy that needs to be put in place.
And he called on Congress to end ‘chain migration,’ in which family members are permitted to join relatives who have immigrated.
A Bangladeshi man identified as 27-year-old Akayed Ullah was taken into custody with serious injuries after a pipe bomb he was carrying malfunctioned and exploded prematurely inside a Midtown Manhattan subway station.
He had come from Bangladesh in 2011, apparently with his parents and three or four siblings – all of them sponsored by his aunt or uncle, his immigration status showed.
Ullah is a Bangladeshi national who has been living in the U.S. for the past seven years. Fox News reports that the former taxi driver came to the U.S. on a F-4 visa, a preferential visa for those who have family already in the U.S. The Post says he is a legal green-card holder.
His immigration designation is F-43, which means he claimed the right to a green card because he is the child of the brother or sister of a U.S. citizen.
The U.S. citizen can be newly naturalized. Trump’s statement suggests that Ullah claimed a green card by virtue of a citizen who was also an immigrant.
Records show that Ullah moved to the U.S. from Chittagong, Bangladesh in February 2011 on the F4 visa, and is now a legal green-card owner.
He reportedly immigrated with his parents and three to four siblings. Trump’s statement suggests that one of his parents’ siblings had gained citizenship then petitioned for multiple family members.
Ullah had recently visited his home country on September 8.
Investigators have yet to determine an official motivation for the failed attack, but there have been reports that Ullah was inspired by ISIS.
It was the second time in two months that New York City was the target of a terrorist attack and the first since President Trump sparked Muslim outrage around the world last week by recognizing Jerusalem as Israel’s capital.
Now, of course, President Trump will do whatever is in his power to make sure that vetting processes are followed, but when you have liberals like Mayor Bill de Blasio usurping his authority it makes the situation rather difficult.
These liberal morons would rather allow radicalized Muslims to enter the country to create chaos in the name of political correctness instead of protecting the American citizens. That is why it is so important that in the upcoming midterm elections the American vote in people that will support President Trump and his agenda to make America great again before these liberal goons try to ruin it forever.

BREAKING NEWS About What NYC Bomber Just Said To Trump – This Is UNREAL!
After two terms of a lame duck leader who was more concerned about protecting Muslims than the American people, allowing refugees into our nation in droves, terrorist that snuck in with them became empowered and arrogant. They knew they were protected and felt that they could literally get away with murder and did. Their crimes against US citizens were called workplace violence or anything other than what it really was.
Since Barack Obama has now been replaced with an unapologetic leader, terrorism is not longer going to be tolerated and is quickly identified, and it’s making jihadists angry. After his horribly failed attempt at committing terrorism on President Trump’s watch, the New York City bomber who managed to live to live now has nothing to lose and has arrogantly called Trump out to his face. What he said means war and it won’t end well for him.
Yesterday’s New York bomber should feel like a fool for failing so hard at being a terrorist, that he, thankfully, only hurt himself. Instead of hiding, he’s making himself a target in what can be seen as another failed attempt to save his reputation. Unfortunately for him, he brought it on with the wrong president who doesn’t mess around with wannabe jihadists like this fool. He clearly forgot who he was talking to when he accused Trump of exactly what Obama was guilty of.
The New York City bomber allegedly went on Facebook just before setting off a homemade device and told President Trump he’d failed to protect the U.S.A.
According to the federal criminal complaint filed Tuesday against Akayed Ullah, the bomber took to the social media site with his message to the Prez while on the way to the Port Authority subway before the explosion.
Per the docs, obtained by TMZ, Ullah allegedly wrote … “Trump you failed to protect your nation” … which prosecutors say he posted Monday morning before the incident. They go on to say the message was written with ISIS in mind.
During a presser about the attack, US Attorney Joon Kim also revealed a search of Ullah’s apartment uncovered a handwritten note that read, “Oh America Die In Your Rage.”
As we reported … Ullah was captured alive after detonating what many called a pipe bomb strapped to his person. Three other people were injured, leaving one temporarily deaf.
As for Trump … he released a statement Monday essentially saying his travel ban was necessary to prevent attacks like this. Sounds like he’ll have more ammo for that point now.
It wasn’t Trump who failed to protect our nation, it was his predecessor. He’s been picking up the pieces ever since and doing a miraculous job at it. Clearly, this terrorist is upset that we now have a leader and not an Islamic enabler. Committing acts of terrorism just got harder with everything Trump has put into place to prevent it, including his controversial, yet exceptionally effective travel ban.
Liberty Belle reported for Freedom Daily yesterday on what we’re expecting our quick acting president to do in the immediate aftermath of this terrorist attack, including adding one specific new location to his travel ban.
When the police questioned Ullah as to what could make him try to blow up innocent people, he told authorities, “They’ve been bombing in my country, and I wanted to do damage here.”
However, that could not be further from the truth.
The United States has not been bombing Bangladesh, but of course, Ullah does not mean that. What Ullah meant to say is that the United States is destroying the Islamic State caliphate, and that is what he is retaliating against which only bolsters the possibility that Trump may add more countries to the list that have ties to terrorism.
Here’s more from Breitbart:
New York City terror suspect, 27-year-old Akayed Ullah, is the fourth Bangladeshi national in the United States to be accused of terrorism in a little more than a decade.
Ullah, as Breitbart News reports, allegedly planned to detonate a homemade bomb in New York City on Monday. Though the terror plot was botched, Ullah is accused of leaving at least three individuals injured. The Bangladeshi national originally entered the U.S. in 2011 with his parents and three-four siblings.
The terror suspect is the fourth Bangladeshi national to enter the U.S. as an immigrant, only then to plot to harm Americans.
There should be nothing stopping Trump from adding Bangladesh to his ban since four terrorists came from that war-torn country, in fact, it only makes sense no matter who it offends. These days of radicalized or otherwise disgruntled Muslims flooding into our nation with bad intentions and trying to take over America are over. Trump has kept his promise to make America great again and is doing just that by rooting out the evil that is terrorism.
