It is not if, but when

It is not if, but when
“Our most immediate concern has been that individuals or small groups will draw twisted inspiration from the events in the Middle East to carry out attacks here at home,” Wray told a House Appropriations subcommittee. “But now, increasingly concerning is the potential for a coordinated attack here in the homeland, akin to the ISIS-K attack we saw at the Russia concert hall a couple weeks ago.”

Yesterday FBI Director Christopher Wray once again told a House of Representatives Committee about the very likely possibility of a terror attack within the US. This is all because of Joe Biden's open border policy which has allowed millions to enter the country with little vetting. Director Wray says that he has never seen more disturbing reports from more directions than he has now. The US has never been more vulnerable.


The stage is now set for a terror attack that simply can't be prevented.



“As I look back over my career in law enforcement, I’d be hard-pressed to think of a time where so many threats to our public safety and national security were so elevated all at once,” he will say in his prepared remarks.

“But that is the case as I sit here today. This is not a point when we can let up.”

Wray has issued similar warnings in the past, especially in the months that followed the Oct. 7, 2023, Hamas terror attack in Israel that killed some 1,200 people, including 33 Americans.

This comes from a man who must have hated telling the country something so detrimental to the president he has served so faithfully.


In other news:

O.J. Simpson — the football star who was acquitted of murder in a trial that mesmerized the nation — died at 76.

Speaker Mike Johnson will meet with former President Donald Trump at Mar-A-Lago today. Johnson may seek help with MTG.

Senator Robert Menendez’s unrushed corruption trial will finally begin next month.

A liberal justice on the Wisconsin Supreme Court will not seek re-election next year, threatening the majority that liberals just won last year.

America’s pro-Palestinian movement has grown into a powerful, if disjointed, political force. It now dominates the democrat party.

Leonardo da Vinci’s “Vitruvian Man” 

"Leonardo da Vinci’s “Vitruvian Man” — one of his most famous drawings — has been reproduced on cheap notebooks, coffee mugs, T-shirts, aprons and even puzzles. It’s become so lucrative that it’s the subject of a legal battle."

No patent?

Critical race theory in two sentences:

“He killed two people in cold blood.”

“His acquittal for murder was the correct and necessary result of a racist criminal legal system.”

Just like "Old Faithful" you do deliver.  /S  The fact of the matter is, rightly or wrongly, OJ was freed. And those of us not a part of the trial can only speculate on the guilt of the man. Of course, no new facts emerged for a 'redo' in all the years after. So now, OJ is dead.  Let's let it be. (Don't promote pissing on his grave or other such thing.)

It must really be an issue if Wray is calling it out.  It only took him 3 years to acknowledge what everybody else already knew.

Lol. He can't let it happen without saying the FBI warned us. He is devoted to saving the FBI's reputation above all things.

It's going to hurt when Trump takes him by the ear lobe and throws him out.

Wray has been in "Cover Your Ass" mode for years now.  His and the FBI reputations are no better than raw sewage.

There's going to be a lot of crying when "leadership" is removed for the incompetence we've seen over the last 3 years.

Congresswoman Jasmine Crockett (D-TX) suggests exempting blacks from taxes. She then says maybe it's not the best idea because many blacks don't pay any taxes anyway… so maybe give free checks.

Her heart is in the right place. But politicians have been gaming their own laws forever.

Politicians will just assume another position in corporations or think tanks as a board member or director of public relations. They won't directly meet up with their political friends that are still serving; but will have an underling registered as a lobbyist to set up functions, dinners, etc.- and if their presence is needed as backup they will attend in their official capacity. Cut down on the face time, phone calls, etc- and allow them to use whatever fame and name recognition they gained while in office to be used outside of the political sphere.

Apparently, that is what has been happening. Congressmen from both parties are being bought. We have them quitting left & right.

Here we go again.  Biden is following the same course of action with Israel that turned Ukraine into a quagmire.  No doubt the political naboobs will exploit Wray's dire generalities into military fodder.  Obviously we only need more dollars for democracy.  

But ...

The bigger threats are Haitian gangs, a potential war between Mexico and Ecuador, and the wide open southern border.  Biden has already tried meddling in Haiti so we should expect that brush fire to explode into a regional conflagration.  (BTW, aid workers are being attacked in Haiti but Biden can't blame Israel.)  And the growing tensions between Mexico and Ecuador could expand into another regional conflagration resulting in mass migration.  The way Biden is handling things, the southern border could look like World War Z before long.

In conclusion:

After no less than 4 votes the House approved reauthorization of FISA by a vote of 273-147. Among the major sticking points that created headaches for Johnson and his fellow GOP leaders was a portion of the law known as section 702 which allows U.S. authorities to surveil communications of foreigners outside the United States. The problem with that is when those foreigners contact Americans and the domestic data is also swept up in collection as well. Thus, intel agencies sometimes abuse the law to actually spy on Americans without a warrant. The bright spot for Conservatives was that the program’s regular expiration date of two years was changed to five years , which would allow the enacting of significant reforms later down the line should Donald Trump win back the White House in 2024. 

Then the bad news for MTG:
