FBI Busts Iraqi Refugee Who Built Bombs. Here’s What He Was Planning to do With Them.

This could’ve been very bad.

FBI agents arrested an Iraqi refugee living here in the United States earlier this week after he built several bombs in Las Vegas that he was planning to use in a terrorist attack here on U.S. soil.

Ahmad Suhad Ahmad’s arrest was the result of a sting operation put together by federal law enforcement agents who went undercover and gained Ahmad’s trust. He then showed them how to construct a C-4 bomb, which is what led to the bust.

Ahmad, who reportedly arrived in the U.S. from Iraq over a decade ago, reportedly wrote on Facebook, “I stand with Refugees.” The Daily Mail reports:

According to the paperwork filed at the US District Court in Tuscon, Arizona, Ahmad, is also accused of teaching ‘the making and use of an explosive, destructive device, or weapon of mass destruction’, to another person between March and April, 2017.

He allegedly provided an undercover FBI operative with homemade bomb recipes and taught them how to construct ‘remote-detonating bombs’.

Ahmad told a confidential FBI source how to detonate a bomb using a cell phone with a removable battery – a trick he said he learned during the war in Iraq, the papers allege.

The undercover agents said that Ahmad taught them how to build a car bomb at his apartment in Tucson and met with them multiple times to discuss logistics.

The document goes on to reveal that Ahmad first told a source back in December of 2016 that he could put together detonating bombs and provided instructions in Arabic on his cell phone, along with a picture of explosive material.

Ahmad later explained to the undercover agents what he was doing while building the first bomb device. He then guided an agent in building a second device, explaining how the bomb worked.

Colorado Mayor Bans Pledge of Allegiance Because It’s Not Legitimate

The left-wing Mayor of Silverton, Colorado, Shane Fuhrman, unilaterally banned the recitation of the Pledge of Allegiance.

The left-wing Mayor of Silverton, Colorado, Shane Fuhrman, unilaterally banned the recitation of the Pledge of Allegiance because he finds it unnecessary. Mayor Furhman insisted that the Pledge isn’t even legitimate, saying, “it’s not really a thing,” when he argued against reciting the pledge, according to the Denver Patch. The issue came up last year when the city began meeting over zoom because of the coronavirus. At that time, it was decided that the council members who didn’t want to recite the pledge would just turn off their computer cameras during the segment of the meeting. But even during that period, the mayor’s request to ditch the pledge was voted down 4-3. However, now that the meetings are back to in-person, the mayor simply acted unilaterally and ended the recitation of the Pledge. “Due to the direct and indirect threats, inappropriate comments in and out of our public meetings, and general divisiveness and issues created in our community, we will not be reciting the Pledge of Allegiance during Town of Silverton trustee meetings,” Fuhrman said during theJune 14 meeting. Fuhrman went on to demand that if anyone had proof in the city’s rules saying he could not make such a decision they better speak up. “If you’d like to find somewhere in the code, something that doesn’t permit me to do this,” he said, “then I welcome that discussion at our next meetings.” At least one council member was not happy with the decision. Trustee Molly Barela reminded the mayor that they had already voted to continue reciting the pledge, and added, “It’s been done for a long time. We all took an oath, and we as a board we decided it would be done.” Members of the public who were in attendance at the meeting were no less supportive…

Promise Broken: 60 Percent of Americans Will Suffer Tax Hike Under Biden’s Plan

Biden ran for office repeatedly claiming that no one making less than $400K would pay more in taxes under his plan.

Biden ran for office repeatedly claiming that no one making less than $400K would pay more in taxes under his plan. We are now seeing that Biden lied. The Tax Policy Center released new data on the realities of Biden’s tax proposals and found that Biden’s policies will slam middle and low-income taxpayers right where it hurts. The organization says that 99.8 percent of Americans earning between $500,00 and $1million will pay an average of $8,810 more in taxes each year under Biden’s tax plan. This might be in keeping with Biden’s campaign pledge that only “the rich” will pay more. But the TPC also found that people who make far less will also get hit under Biden. The center says that people making between $75,000 and $500,00 will also get pinched. This is not as a result of direct taxes on income but of the impact of the other hikes in rates, such as the corporate tax rise. According to the Daily Mail: Three-quarters of households earning between $75,000 and $100,000 annually would face paying an additional $440 per year in taxes under Biden’s tax hikes, according to the data released last week. About 69 percent of those earning between $100,000 and $200,000 would see their yearly tax bill rise by $830 on average, according to the analysis. Meanwhile, 83.7 percent of those earning between $200,000 and $500,000 would see an increase of $2,040 on average. But most Americans will be impacted indirectly by Biden’s giant tax hike. “For those looking to see if Biden kept his promise to not raise taxes for those making $400,000 or less, the answer is: Mostly, but not entirely,” wrote Howard Gleckman, a senior fellow at the Tax Policy Center. “Including corporate tax increases, most households would pay more in 2022. About three-quarters…
