Seven Charged With Terror Conspiracy

Seven individuals have been charged with conspiring to provide material support to terrorists and conspiring to murder, kidnap, maim and injure persons abroad, David Kris, Assistant Attorney General for the National Security Division; George E.B. Holding, U.S. Attorney for the Eastern District of North Carolina; and Owen D. Harris, Special Agent in Charge of the FBI’s Charlotte Field Division, announced today.

On July 22, a federal grand jury in the Eastern District of North Carolina returned a sealed seven-count indictment against the following defendants: Daniel Patrick Boyd, 39; Hysen Sherifi, 24; Anes Subasic, 33; Zakariya Boyd, 20; Dylan Boyd, 22; Mohammad Omar Aly Hassan, 22; and Ziyad Yaghi, 21. The seven defendents are all residents of the Triangle area.

All the defendants are charged with conspiracy to provide material support to terrorists, as well as conspiracy to murder, kidnap, maim and injure persons abroad. In addition, Daniel Boyd, Hysen Sherifi and Zakariya Boyd are each charged with possession of a firearm in furtherance of a crime of violence.

In July 2008, Sharifi allegedly departed the United States for Kosovo to engage in violent jihad. According to the indictment, Sharifi later returned to North Carolina in April 2009, for the purpose of soliciting funds and personnel to support the mujihadeen

Today, Now from Reuters:

The leader of a small militant group in North Carolina pleaded guilty on Wednesday to conspiracy to carry out acts of terrorism overseas and scheming to helping other militants, the Justice Department said.

Daniel Boyd, 40, and seven others were first indicted in 2009 for training and seeking to carry out attacks in places like Kosovo, Jordan and the Gaza Strip. He is the first from the group to plead guilty.

“This case proves how our world is changing. Terrorists are no longer only from foreign countries but also citizens who live within our own borders,” U.S. Attorney George Holding said in a statement after the hearing in U.S. District Court in New Bern, North Carolina.

Boyd, a U.S. citizen who also went by the name Saifullah, is set to be sentenced in May and faces up to life in prison. His two sons, Zakariya and Dylan, were also charged in the case. Reuters

Obama’s G.M. to give big bonuses to workers – Dad would be proud

Obama in Kenya..Same idea, different crowd

Obama’s dad wrote an “important article” called “Problems Facing Our Socialism.” . Obama’s Dad would be so proud of his son.

The anticolonial thinking of Barack Obama, Sr. is all there.  So too his socialist ambitions.

The senior Obama proposed that the state confiscate private land and raise taxes with no upper limit. In fact, he insisted that “theoretically there is nothing that can stop the government from taxing 100% of income so long as the people get benefits from the government commensurate with their income which is taxed.”

If this angle is of interest to you, take a look at an earlier post of ours: Obama’s Psyche and that which makes him rage

Looks like Pops would be oh so proud of Barry. GM will profit share up to $3000.00 per worker. The fruit did not fall far from the tree.

Feb. 8 (Bloomberg)General Motors Co. may pay its 53,000 unionized hourly U.S. staff record profit-sharing checks of more than $3,000 per worker, two people familiar with the plan said.

The company hasn’t determined a specific amount and may change its plans after completing accounting for 2010, said the people, who asked not to be named because the plans haven’t been publicly disclosed. GM’s previous highest payout was $1,775 in 1999, according to the Center for Automotive Research.

Sharing the U.S. auto industry’s prosperity will be a focus of contract talks this year between the United Auto Workers and GM, Ford Motor Co. and Chrysler Group LLC. UAW President Bob King has said he aims to recover some of the $7,000 to $30,000 in concessions each worker gave up since 2005 to help U.S. automakers survive the worst market in decades.

“This is probably more than workers were eligible for so that they’ll feel good going into negotiations, which makes this a pre-signing bonus,” said Sean McAlinden, a former auto worker who’s now chief economist for the Center for Automotive Research in Ann Arbor, Michigan. “Lump-sum payments like this could make up 12 percent to 15 percent of compensation in the next contract.”

Obamacare Defense to be Secretly Funded, Headed with Convicted Bjork

Obama brings in the thugs again to help him play his dirty game again for 2012. This time, we are going to stay on the job and insist his nasty playbook gets revealed. So she is going to be the bag lady. Looks like she has the perfect resume for him. Looks like the perfect person. Here tis:

A top Democratic adviser convicted in a major political scandal as a legislative aide will help lead a new initiative to defend President Obama’s highly unpopular healthcare overhaul.

Despite her shady past, the consultant (Tanya Bjork) was hired by Obama to head his 2008 presidential campaign in Wisconsin.

The healthcare law defense initiative will be largely headed by Tewes, a key figure in Obama’s 2008 presidential campaign and the man credited with his shocking Iowa Caucus victory. In fact, Tewes is touted by his Washington D.C. consulting firm (New Partners) as the guy who launched “Obama’s historic campaign” by building the “largest grassroots organization in caucus history.”

Bjork is expected to be an important player Obamacare’s defense, despite her corrupt past which has been virtually ignored by the mainstream media. In 2005 she was convicted for her role in the largest political scandal in Wisconsin history.After working on Obama’s presidential campaign Wisconsin’s former governor, Democrat Jim Doyle, awarded Bjork with a six-figure job to lead the state’s federal lobbying effort. The move ignited fury among government watchdog groups that claimed corruption was still prevalent in state politics.

Although the president has filled many sound bites chastising special-interest money in politics, funding for the new group is being kept secret.

Organizers assure they’ll operate independently of the White House and Democrats in Congress, though they acknowledge that they will “be in communication with them.” This may be difficult to swallow considering the cause and who’s running the momentous new enterprise, which is expected to be headquartered a stone’s throw from the Oval Office.

Keep in mind: Tanya Bjork, 38, was convicted of two misdemeanors in 2005 for her role in the largest political scandal in state history. Bjork pleaded no contest to charges that she altered records and illegally solicited campaign funds in the Capitol

If you have time, take a look at this  earlier side story of this gal when she was back in Wisconsin:

The state’s new lobbyist in charge of protecting Wisconsin’s interests as the federal stimulus package is processed has two corruption-related convictions.

Department of Administration Secretary Michael Morgan announced the hiring of Tanya Bjork, 38, to be the state’s director of federal relations and head up its lobbying efforts. Story here
