Congressman Ted Lieu represents the 33rd District of California. Immediately you can safely assume he is a nut-job because he is representing California, and I would not blame you. He is in the company of Jerry Brown, Dianne Feinstein, Kamala Harris and the newly elected Jimmy Gomez.
The “Progressives” they call themselves. Well I guess they are progressing us towards something…massive debt and poverty, so I guess that is what Progressive truly means. Jerry Brown was recently in China negotiation trade deals that go above our Federal Government, trying to turn the state into a full rogue power.
People like Ted Lieu are the reason we all need to support people like Antonio Sabáto Jr for Congress and Omar Navarro who is taking on the insane Maxine Waters.
So why am I calling Congressman Lieu a liar?
Well it’s for this statement he made a few days ago concerning the Presidents plan to institute a “Travel Ban”: Now initially you may think Ted Lieu is actually right in his position. He is light on facts, but it’s true that 15 of the 19 hijackers on 9/11 held Saudi Arabian citizenship. So why am I calling him a liar? Well if you read his tweet very carefully, you can see he is actually 100% wrong, actually 100% dishonest, his tweet is a total lie.
Right off the bat we can dismiss around 25% of the hijackers. These four hijackers have interesting adventures as to how they ended up traveling to the United States.
Mohamed Mohamed Atta(yes, twice named Mohamed, and people wonder why vetting is so hard). Was an Egyptian national.
Born in 1968 Cairo, right in the heart of the Nile Delta. His father was a Sharia Law expert and lawyer. In 1985 he attended Cairo University and studied engineering. Traveled anywhere but Saudi Arabia, radicalized in Germany actually.
Part of the Muslim Brotherhood came to the US from Europe after having obtained a tourist visa.
Marwan Yousef Mohamed was born in the United Arab Emirates where he traveled from there to Germany, where he joined an Islamic terror cell.
Fayez Rashid Ahmed Hassan al-Qadi Banihammad
born in the UAE also and traveled to the US using the Visa Express program to obtain a tourist visa.
Ziad Jarrah born in Lebanon, also moved to Germany where he joined the terror cell that lead him into the 9/11 attacks.
Wail Mohammed al-Shehri was born in Saudi Arabia, but went to fight in Chechnya, then traveled to Afghanistan where he was recruited for the attacks.
Waleed Mohammed al-Shehri born in Saudi Arabia, brother of Wail. He and his brother both fought in Chechnya and were recruited in Afghanistan for the 9/11 attacks.
Satam Muhammed Abdel Rahman al-Suqami born in Saudi Arabia, a law student who traveled to Afghanistan where he was recruited for the 9/11 attacks.
Mohand Muhammed Fayiz al-Shehri born in Saudi Arabia, fought in Chechnya, went to Afghanistan where he was recruited for the attacks.
Hamza al-Ghamdi born in Saudi Arabia, fought in Chechnya, went to Afghanistan where he was recruited for the attacks.
Ahmed Salah Said al-Ghamdi born in Saudi Arabia, fought in Chechnya, went to Afghanistan where he was recruited for the attacks.
Honi Honjour born in Saudi Arabia, attended school in US, traveled to UAE, back to Saudi Arabia, but then to Afghanistan, where he was recruited for the attacks.
Khalid al-Mihdhar born in Saudi Arabia, fought in the Bosnian War, traveled to Afghanistan where he was hand selected by Osama Bin Laden for the attacks. Was living in San Diego when he first arrived to the USA.
Majed Moqed born in Saudi Arabia, recruited into Al-Qaeda trained in Afghanistan just outside of Kabul where he was recruited for the attacks
Nawaf al-Hazmi was born in Saudi Arabia, fought in the Bosnian Wars. Traveled to Afghanistan to fight with the Taliban against the Northern Afghan Alliance. He did travel back to Saudi Arabia briefly, but then traveled to Malaysia to attend a meeting of high level Al-Qaeda operatives. He then traveled to Bangkok Thailand where he flew to Los Angeles. With all of our Sanctuary Cities I can see why some of them traveled to California.
Salem al-Hazmi born in Saudi Arabia, brother of Nawaf. Reports exist they fought together in bother the Chechnya and Afghan Civil War. Training in Afghanistan he was recruited for the 9/11 attacks, he flew to Beirut than traveled to New Jersey.
Ahmed al-Haznawi fought in Chechnya then traveled to Afghanistan where he was recruited for the 9/11 attacks,
Ahmed al-Nami born in Saudi Arabia, traveled to Afghanistan where he was recruited for the attacks.
Saeed al-Ghamdi Fought in Chechnya before traveling to the Afghanistan where he was recruited for the 9/11 attacks.
Abdulaziz al-Omari very little is known about this hijacker, he may or may not have traveled directly from Saudi Arabia to the United States.
Now, you can see that although 15 of the 19 hijackers were born in Saudi Arabia, they didn’t come to America from Saudi Arabia. Why? Because Saudi Arabia already has strict security at all of it’s airports and carefully monitors who is boarding planes destined for the US. Most of them used tourist visas to enter the country gained through our flawed vetting program.
That is why the terrorists had to go to other countries, like Afghanistan or Thailand before traveling to the USA. So no Congressman, the men did not “come from Saudi Arabia” to the United States. They were born there, sure, but I am not ready to be in the position to say all Saudi Arabians must be banned from the US just because some of the 9/11 hijackers were born there.
So I would say most of the 9/11 terrorists actually came to the USA from Afghanistan, not Saudi Arabia. In fact, it looks like only 1 may have traveled directly from Saudi Arabia to the USA.
The driving motives behind the attacks had much more to do with religious extremism than it had to do with ethnicity or country of birth. Terrorism motives have more to do with where a person was last, not where they started. If you want to investigate a terrorists motives, you will learn more from his adult friends than from his childhood friends.
For that reason there is no need to impose a travel ban on Saudi Arabia. Imposing a travel ban on Afghanistan, Sudan, Lebanon, Syria or Beirut makes more sense. The places where the terrorists actually come to the US from.
People like you, Congressman Ted Lieu, put us in more danger. By sabotaging our security systems while also opening up our borders you leave us more vulnerable to terrorism and less safe. We are at greater risk than ever to be hit with Islamic terrorism. I reject your Progressive premise that there is nothing to worry about.
Attacks happen almost weekly now across the world and politician likes you cry more about Islamophobia than about the Humanophobics that seek to destroy our very life. I support President Trumps travel ban, and it doesn’t need to be aimed at Saudi Arabia, unless the President deems it necessary. He has the facts and the balls to do something about it, you have nothing but pathetic virtue signalling and weakness.
You want to act like some moral authority, like your progressive “values” make you a good person but you hang out with disgusting vile people like Kathy Griffin and refuse to disavow her disgusting hostile actions towards our President. Your wife hangs out with elite hollywood celebs that are serial polluters like Leo Dicaprio, while preaching about how dangerous climate change is. Pathetic.
You don’t represent the 33rd district, you represent the Deep State and their cronies like Obama.
If we are attacked Congressman Ted Lieu, you and all who oppose a travel ban have blood on your hands. I only hope the California voters will wake up before it’s too late and vote people like you out of office.
