FBI Raids Chicago Home as Part of Terror-Related Investigation. One Arrested.

This is super scary.

Published

FBI agents raided a home on the North Side of Chicago on Wednesday as part of an investigation related to terrorism, leading to the arrest of one individual.

A search warrant was issued and executed at 9 a.m. in the 5200 block of North Virginia Avenue. The home was located in the Budlong Woods neighborhood.

It’s scary to contemplate the reality that a person with connections to some form of terrorism could be living right next door to you and you’d never know it, but unfortunately, this is the world we all live in these days.

A man who lives in the two-story brick apartment building was arrested at another location on charges that remain under seal. Details of the investigation were not immediately available, but a source described the probe as a matter of national security.

When a Chicago Tribune reporter neared the home Wednesday afternoon, a man got out of a black car parked in front of the building, identified himself as “state police” and said not to get any closer.

“There’s an investigation going on,” he said.

Another dark car parked along Virginia had a placard in its front windshield that said, “JTTF, Joint Terrorism Task Force.”

At least five agents in street clothes were stationed at a back entrance to the building Wednesday afternoon, occasionally walking in and out. Meanwhile, a neighbor pacing nervously outside the building said the officers had told her “not to talk” to anyone.

Several neighbors along the quiet residential block said Wednesday they are familiar with the people who live at the two-story apartment building but don’t know much about them.

The presence of the FBI and other local law enforcement officers in the area left many neighbors feeling uneasy, especially when their inquiries into what was going on in their neighborhood were shut down. One individual stated they have a very diverse neighborhood, alluding to the kind of people who make up the area.

One neighbor, Roger McAlister, said that their neighbors would wave and say hello, but otherwise very little was known about them. He went on to state the whole situation is super mysterious.

After Notre Dame Fire, Man Arrested with Gas Gans in NYC Cathedral

The news comes just days after Notre Dame Cathedral in Paris was accidentally set ablaze.

gasoline fire arson

The hellish blaze that engulfed Notre Dame Cathedral in Paris this week was a disheartening spectacle that none of us would ever hope to see again, anywhere in the world. For many, the timing of the inferno was almost too coincidental to be accidental, given that this is the beginning of Holy Week for the Christian faith, culminating with Easter Sunday in just a few days.  Online conspiracy theorists have long been trying to tie these threads together in order to fit their own narrative, mind you, complete with the occasional race-baiting insinuation that this was Islamic terrorism. To be clear, there is no evidence of a criminal act having taken place at Notre Dame. In contrast, however, police in New York City have arrested a man who looked to clearly be ready to reenact the Notre Dame blaze at Saint Patrick’s Cathedral just yesterday. A New Jersey man was arrested after entering St. Patrick’s Cathedral carrying two cans of gasoline, lighter fluid and butane lighters, the New York Police Department said, just days after flames ravaged the Notre Dame cathedral in Paris. The unidentified 37-year-old man had pulled up Wednesday night in a minivan outside the landmark cathedral on Fifth Avenue in midtown Manhattan, walked around the area, then returned to his vehicle at 7:55 p.m. and retrieved the gasoline and lighter fluid, said NYPD Deputy Commissioner of Intelligence and Counterterrorism John Miller. That’s scary enough…but it gets stranger. “His basic story was he was cutting through the cathedral to get to Madison Avenue. That his car had run out of gas,” Miller said. “We took a look at the vehicle. It was not out of gas and at that point he was taken into custody.” The incident comes as another potential copycat criminal was found dead after “obsessing”…

North Korea Taunts USA with New Weapons Test

North Korea has a history of diplomatic ebbs and flows, but this is the sort of bait-and-switch insult that could have Trump ready to wallop Kim Jong Un.

Kim Jong Un

Perhaps it was always too good to be true. Donald Trump, a President who was widely lambasted by the liberal left on account of his political inexperience, became an unprecedented hero in an unlikely situation with North Korea early into his presidency. For reasons perhaps still unknown, Trump’s opening of a dialogue with North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un suddenly seemed to bring the DPRK back into the global community.  Part of this resurgence included, as it must, a promise of denuclearization by the hermit kingdom. Somewhere along the way, things have fallen off the rails, likely at the behest of Kim himself. Now, ever more astonishingly, the dainty despot is pushing the envelope even further with claims of a new weapons test. North Korea said Thursday that it had test-fired a new type of “tactical guided weapon,” its first such test in nearly half a year, and demanded that Washington remove Secretary of State Mike Pompeo from nuclear negotiations. The test, which didn’t appear to be of a banned mid- or long-range ballistic missile that could scuttle negotiations, allows North Korea to show its people it is pushing ahead with weapons development while also reassuring domestic military officials worried that diplomacy with Washington signals weakness. And that’s not all:  The DPRK is also now taking pot shots at Secretary of State Mike Pompeo. Separately, the North Korean Foreign Ministry accused Pompeo of playing down the significance of comments by leader Kim Jong Un, who said last week that Washington has until the end of the year to offer mutually acceptable terms for an agreement to salvage the high-stakes nuclear diplomacy. Both the demand for Pompeo’s removal from the talks and the weapon test point to North Korea’s displeasure with the deadlocked negotiations. Was this all a ruse by North…
