Boston Police Captain’s Son Sentenced for Plotting ISIS Attack. What His Father Says is Heartbreaking.

It can be chilling to learn what is happening right under our noses.

Within a week of the FBI arresting the four adults behind the New Mexico terrorist training camp for children, a Boston Police Captain’s son was sentenced to 20 years behind bars for plotting a large-scale attack on behalf of ISIS.

While the terrorists in New Mexico were foreign-born, however, this young man was American-born and fully committed to the cause of the Islamic state, which should tell you something about just how capable IS is of indoctrinating angry young people around the globe, even right here at home.

Tragically, it was Cpt. Robert Ciccolo himself who first alerted authorities of his sons’ possible plans.

The Daily Wire reports:

Boston police captain’s son was sentenced to 20 years in prison on Wednesday for plotting a terrorist attack for the Islamic State (ISIS) with firearms and homemade bombs on an unidentified university in New Mexico.

The terrorist, who gave himself an Arabic name that translates to “Ali the American,” pleaded guilty in May to terrorism charges, including attempting to provide material support to a foreign terrorist organization and attempting to use weapons of mass destruction, ABC News reports.

Authorities describe the thwarted terrorist as a “committed soldier” of ISIS who wished to inflict “maximum damage.”

In a statement, Hank Shaw, the special agent in charge of the Boston FBI office, stressed that the terrorist “was a committed soldier of ISIS who wanted to kill innocent people at a United States university with assault rifles and pressure cooker bombs, not an unwitting dupe who didn’t understand the gravity of what he was doing.”

The man was contacted by undercover FBI agents after his father, Cpt. Robert Ciccolo, alerted authorities about his son’s desire to fight for ISIS in Syria.

Undercover FBI agents then contacted the suspect, who discussed plots to attack several targets in New Mexico, including a university, a police station, and a gay-friendly bar. He was arrested on July 4, 2015, after accepting two rifles and two handguns from the undercover agents.

It’s very good to know this man is behind bars, and that there are men in blue who are so committed to their line of duty they would make such a difficult decision to turn their own children in.

Cpt. Ciccolo, however, says that that’s simply what he’s been trained to do:

Capt. Ciccolo started to have concerns about his son after he heard him talk about traveling to Syria to fight for ISIS. The captain calls his decision to alert the FBI “heartbreaking,” but says he “understood that he could be preventing harm to innocent people.”

“I’m a cop. You can’t tell me you are going to commit crimes and expect me to take no action to prevent it,” Capt. Ciccolo said.

Let’s keep the Ciccolo family in our prayers in what must surely be a very difficult time.

DOJ Making Moves To Break Up Google, Calling It The ‘Most Important Antitrust Case In A Generation’

Published

on

The Department of Justice is moving to file an antitrust lawsuit against Big Tech company Google on Tuesday after a very thorough investigation was launched into the company over alleged monopolistic behavior. This lawsuit will allege that Google has been engaging in practices deemed to be “anticompetitive” in order to help insulate and protect its search and search-advertising businesses, according to a source from the Justice Department. via Daily Wire: Google has frozen out competitors through contracts between the tech giant and browsers, carriers, and mobile phone manufacturers that give Google such prime standing as the default search engine across a variety of platforms as to bar any competitors from beginning to compete with the tech giant. Googles search queries make up roughly 80% of all those in the U.S. Google has argued in the past that billions of people choosing to use its product every day is evidence of the company’s competitive edge, not monopolistic behavior. The legal battle between the tech giant and the U.S. government is likely to span years. The lawsuit follows an investigation into the company that lasted for more than a year and took place in a wider investigation into Silicon Valley tech giants for alleged anticompetitive practices. The president himself has been among the most ardent voices speaking out about the monopolistic behavior of tech companies like Google, Facebook, and Twitter, as well as drawing attention to their censorship of conservative views. Some of Trump’s most loyal supporters, like Sen. Josh Hawley, were very pleased to hear about the lawsuit. “Today’s lawsuit is the most important antitrust case in a generation. Google and its fellow Big Tech monopolists exercise unprecedented power over the lives of ordinary Americans, controlling everything from the news we read to the security of our most personal information,” the…

Trump Tells Barr To ‘Act Fast’ And ‘Appoint Somebody’ To Look Into Hunter Biden Business Dealings

Published

President Donald Trump told Attorney General William Barr on Tuesday that he needs to “act” and “appoint somebody” to start digging into Hunter Biden’s rather shady business dealings. The urging comes after almost a dozen GOP House members have been suggesting the president tap a special counsel to launch an investigation into all of the alleged documentation and information that was recently pulled from a water damaged laptop believed to have belonged to the younger Biden. The president mentioned all of this during an interview on “Fox & Friends” Tuesday morning where he slammed Joe Biden and his son saying he “walked around like a vacuum.” via Fox News: “This is the laptop from hell,” Trump said. “Even if he didn’t get all of this money, you can’t go to China and have the son walk out with $1.5 billion. … You can’t go to Ukraine with $83,000 a month. … You can’t get $3.5 million from the mayor of Moscow’s wife.” “And you didn’t have a job before your father was vice president,” Trump continued. “You can’t go and go with your father and every stop you make, you pick up $1 billion.” He added: “The vice president got a kickback, and everybody knows it, and they’ve known it a long time.” One of the emails that supposedly belongs to Hunter Biden, which was obtained by Fox News, is dated for May 13, 2017, and includes talk of “renumeration packages” for six different individuals involved in a business deal with a Chinese energy company. According to the message, Hunter Biden is the “Chair/Vice Chair depending on an agreement with CEFC,” which was a reference to the now-bankrupt CEFC China Energy Company. That same message also contains a note that says “Hunter has some office expectations he will elaborate.” There’s…
