Boy, if I were Osama Bin Laden, I’d be endlessly laughing at the incompetence–no, the deliberate do-nothingness–of certain ICE officials. While there are so many, in this case, I’m talking Immigration and Customs Enforcement Special Agent in Charge for Michigan and Ohio Brian M. Moskowitz a/k/a “Abu Moskowitz.”
Readers know from my extensive coverage of Moskowitz that he’s more concerned with picking up new girlfriends working at Islamic charities and pleasing “former” Islamic terrorists than he is at enforcing immigration laws (which might have something to do with rumors that they are “greasing his skids”). But this latest incident in Port Clinton, Ohio is truly an outrage. And it shows, yet again, how local police are doing the real national security tasks, which ICE and the FBI refuse to do for absurd PC reasons.
Over the weekend, alien Russian Muslims with Michigan Driver’s Licenses were caught by police in Port Clinton, Ohio buying up TracFones–which Muslims use for IED terrorist attacks against our soldiers. But Moskowitz’s spokesperson said he doesn’t give a whit. Reportedly, the Russians are here legally, but they may be in violation of visas and/or certain laws and eligible for deportation. But ICE was contacted by sheriffs for a reason. And the men lied to police about doing construction work–that’s obstruction. And they’re likely involved with terrorists, for whom they are ultimately buying the phones.
They were able to obtain Michigan driver’s licenses because Michigan Attorney General Mike Cox allowed aliens to get driver’s licenses for five years without doing a thing to stop them. And they are able to do all of this, again, because, as Moskowitz’s spokeman says, they DON’T CARE. And The ICE Princess Julie L. Myers, ICE Director of Investigations Marcy M. Forman, and ICE Director of Detention and Removal Operations John P. Torres DO NOT CARE.
Remember the Lebanese Muslims from Dearbornistan, Osama Sobhi Abulhassan and Ali Houssaiky, who lied to police after they were caught buying up TracFones–which are used for IED attacks against our soldiers–all over Ohio and West Virginia? As I noted, Houssaiky’s relatives are in the top ranks of Hezbollah.
Since that incident, I continue to receive reports from all over Ohio, West Virginia, and other states that Muslims–Russian, Arab, and others, all of whom come from Michigan–continue to buy up the phones with cash. And Houssaiky continues to do it, disposing a Vicodin prescription at one of the dollar stores where he bought the phones. He showed the store clerk the business card of a West Virginia-based FBI agent who “investigated” him and laughed about it. I would laugh, too, if I were in his position. We’re doing nothing about this, despite the fact that we know Muslims are buying up these phones all over the U.S. (from small towns in Texas to small towns in Wisconsin) and shipping them to the Mid-East for IED attacks or re-wiring to receive free, untraceable cellular phone service.
Here’s the scoop on the Russian Muslims:
The sheriff’s office questioned two Russian men Sunday who told a deputy they bought more than 200 prepaid cell phones over the weekend from area stores.
Neither was charged with a crime, but the Ottawa County Sheriff’s Office notified Immigration and Customs Enforcement in Cleveland of the incident, according to a sheriff’s office report.
The men, who have lived in the United States for at least five years, told the deputy they bought the Tracfones from stores in the Port Clinton and Sandusky areas to resell to a businessman, according to the report. The businessman, whose name or location they did not provide, then would sell the phones on eBay, they told Deputy George Byington.
Prepaid cell phones have been linked to terrorist activity in the past, causing store officials to consider the men’s behavior suspicious. Some stores have limits on the number of prepaid cell phones customers can buy at one time.
ICE spokesman Greg Palmore of the agency’s Detroit office said he had no information regarding the incident.
“This is the first I’ve heard of it,” Palmore said. “If it was something we had a major interest in, I would have heard about it.”
Yup, that’s the problem. Palmore is the spokesman for Abu Moskowitz. And they aren’t interested. Not interested that these are Russian nationals who are trying to become citizens and should have forfeited that right by lying to Ohio police. Not interested that they are buying up devices which will be used to murder our soldiers serving overseas.
Managers at Wal-Mart on East Harbor Road called the sheriff’s office Saturday after seeing the men enter the store repeatedly to buy the phones, according to the report. Security video shows they slightly modified their appearance each time, sometimes putting on a hat or glasses or removing their jackets, the deputy reported.
An employee at Dollar General, located at the front of the Wal-Mart driveway, told deputies the men had looked at Tracfones in the store but left, the report shows.
When the men returned to the store Sunday, managers again called authorities. A sheriff’s deputy confronted them while one of the men was at the checkout with two Tracfones, the report shows.
The men produced Michigan driver’s licenses, both of which listed residents in the Detroit area — Troy and West Bloomfield, according to the report. They said they visited Ohio to buy the phones and stayed at a Sandusky hotel, the deputy reported.
They work construction, and selling Tracfones is a legitimate business that supplements their income, they told the deputy.
A Wal-Mart manager told the men not to return to the Portage Township store, according to the report.
The lie about construction work is the same lie that Abulhassan and Houssaiky told Washington Township, Ohio sheriff’s deputies in summer 2006.
Looks like the sheriffs in this case bought the story. The sharp Washington Township Sheriff’s Department did not, and Abulhassan and Houssaiky admitted they made the story up, pleading guilty to charges regarding that.
Law enforcement tell me that most Muslim men caught buying up disposable cellphones in Ohio, West Virginia, and the area tell the exact same story: They are in construction and need the phones for that.
Hmmm . . . they are have the same phony story. And they’re all Muslims from Michigan. Must be just a “coincidence.” Right?
It’s a shame that alert clerks in stores all over are phoning police and yet all of these Muslim TracFone amassers get away with little more than a report on them going into the FBI and ICE circular files . . . if even that.
