There has been a remarkable decline in illegal border crossings from Mexico to the United States since Donald Trump took office, according to National Border Patrol Council President Brandon Judd, who appeared on C-SPAN’s Washington Journal Monday. “We attribute that to actually enforcing the law,” Judd said.

It is making big news except in the mainstream press, where the obsession with Russia appears to be continuing.

The Washington Examiner reported that Judd, in a separate interview with Fox News, said, “There’s a vibe, there’s an energy in the Border Patrol that’s never been there before in 20 years that I’ve been in the patrol.”

Stemming the tide of illegal immigration along the southern border was a large part of Trump’s campaign, and it appears to be paying off.

“As far as the Trump administration’s efforts on immigration, this is something they campaigned heavily on. At six months, where we are on meeting those promises, we are seeing nothing short of miraculous. If you look at the rhetoric that President Trump has given, it has caused a number of illegal border crossings to go down. We have never seen such a drop that we currently have.”—Brandon Judd, president National Border Patrol Council
Under the previous administration, the southern border seemed like a sieve, with people pouring across and heading north. That was then, this is now.

Earlier this year, the Washington Times reported that illegal immigration was “down a stunning 76 percent since President Trump was elected, with the flow of children and families dropping even faster as analysts say the administration’s commitment to enforcing the law has changed the reality along the border.”

In May, the Washington Examiner noted that there had been “a huge crop in arrests along the Southwest border.” The newspaper quoted U.S. Customs and Border Protection asserting that this was “a likely result of president Trump’s aggressive effort to stop illegals from entering the nation and deport those with criminal records.”

There has been trouble along the southern border for many years, with some remote stretches showing a fair amount of activity, keeping the Border Patrol busy.

It was one enforcement effort in December 2010 that led to the infamous gun battle resulting in the death of Border Patrol agent Brian Terry. That slaying blew the lid off of an Obama administration scandal surrounding Operation Fast and Furious, a gun smuggling sting that went bad for the federal Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives.

Border security is more than just smuggling firearms or even drugs. With international terrorism a constant threat, there have been concerns that terrorists might be able to enter the country illegally through Mexico.

Jihad is Warfare against Non-Muslims

“This religion [Islam] will destroy all other religions through Islamic jihad fighters.”
Jordanian/Palestinian school book (1998)

“The word jihad is most often associated with the act of physically confronting evil and wrong-doing…if anyone dies in a Jihad they automatically go to Paradise. The duty of muslim citizens is to be loyal to the Islamic State.”
What Islam is All About
(most widely used junior high school text book in U.S. Islamic schools)

Last week, Hamas operative Linda Sarsour called for a “Jihad” against President Trump and, in case you missed the implications, the United States of America. She made her remarks while speaking at the largest Muslim Brotherhood (MB) organization in North America – ISNA (Islamic Society of North America) – which the U.S. Department of Justice identified as a Muslim Brotherhood organization funding the terrorist group Hamas.

Linda Sarsour with U.S. MB/Hamas (CAIR) leader Nihad Awad & Muslim Brother Yasir Qadhi

The MB is openly calling for jihad against the U.S. President, and they are immediately following it with an information operation stating “Jihad” is non-violent. It is just a “struggle” we are told.

This is a blatant lie which has to be harshly and immediately put to rest.

Jihad is total warfare against unbelievers (non-Muslims). There is no other legal definition of jihad.

Here is a quote from a high school text book used at the Islamic Center of Oakland:
“To be true Muslims, we must prepare and be ready for jihad in Allah’s way. It is the duty of the citizen and the government. The military education is glued to the faith and its meaning, and the duty to follow it.”

“Fight and slay the unbeliever wherever you find them, besiege them, and lie in wait for them in each and every ambush.” Koran 9:5

“Jihad means to war against non-Muslims.” Um dat al Salik, Islamic Sacred Law

And this from the highest legal authority in the Islamic world, Al Azhar University (Chairman):

“But jihad in the path of Allah, to make his word supreme, spread his religion, defend the honor of the Islamic nation, and respond to the aggression against Muslims all around the earth-this is jihad: when a Muslim fights an infidel without treaty to make the word of Allah Most High supreme, forcing him to fight or invading his land, this is a permissible matter according to the consensus of the jurists. Indeed, it is an obligation for all Muslims. Now if the deeds of the jihad-including fighting the infidels and breaking their spine through all possible means-are permissible according to Sharia, then it is impossible to define those acts as terrorism, which Sharia-based evidence has made illegitimate.”

There is no gray area.

The Global Islamic Movement led by the Muslim Brotherhood continues to call for the destruction of the United States and the West.

We have long past the time when we must destroy them and their Movement utterly.

Ignoring Former Muslims To Our Detriment

Many men and women have left Islam and courageously speak truthfully about what Islam teaches and the threat it poses to the civilized world.

These are people grew up being taught about the obligation to wage jihad, that taking Jews and Christians for friends is unlawful because it is prohibited by Allah in the Koran, that non-Muslims are the “worst of all creatures” (Koran 98:6), and that the purpose of Islam is to impose sharia (Islamic Law) on the entire world.

We in the non-Muslim world can learn a lot from these people.  Are we hearing them?

As a Special Agent in the FBI (1996-2008), UTT Founder/President John Guandolo worked with muslim assets/informants who did dangerous and difficult work on behalf of our nation and the FBI.  While they did not adhere to sharia, they identified themselves as “muslims.”

Through this work, Mr. Guandolo came to know about an Imam from Uganda who converted to Christianity. The Imam wrote his story in March of 2007, and it included details of growing up in Islam, training to become an Imam, and what Islam teaches.  John Guandolo had this story translated into English and then disseminated it inside the FBI as well as to Christian organizations to support their work in Islamic nations.

A brief summary of the story is below which gives readers an insight into the true intentions of Islam.  It reveals Islam is a totalitarian system which enslaves people who are a part of it.

“My name is Mayanja Yiusf.  I was born into a Muslim family in Uganda…When I came of age, I enrolled for studies in Islam and Arabic which took six years:  three years of Islam and three years of Arabic.  I trained in Uganda and Sudan and I became a prominent Imam and spoke at many mosques in and outside Kampala.  I was a leader of a Muslim Association called Al-Dawahti…I was on the council of Tabliqs and my paternal uncle is the leader of that sect in Uganda.

“I was born and raised a Muslim, but now I have left that life behind…In light of the crisis in the world today, and because of the ongoing strategies to attack Christians at every level, may this also be a warning to all peoples everywhere, that Islam is obtaining dominance and is arming itself for continued war on all things not of Islam.  There is little time left to reach the many innocent Muslims who wish they could escape from the violent slavery of Islam.

“I tell you my story while I am still alive.  You see, as a Muslim who has left the faith, my days may be numbered.  I have lived under the threat of death since I left my father’s household, only until now, they have not succeeded.

“Lest you think that the religion of Islam is promoting the love of God and fellow man, here are just a few of the works that Islam engages in today:

“It is not just the “radical fundamentalists” or jihadis who participate in the terror of today.  Do you not know that it is against the Koran to refuse help to those who are in Jihad?

“There is a strategy called the “New Mosque Movement” which seeks to begin building mosques and schools and clinics all over the world.  Just look around and you can see, in Africa, South America, England, and France, and even in America.  The mosques are the centers of political thought as well as religious practice, but then again, those two are inseparable in Islam.

“Muslim fathers will gladly kill their sons and daughters if they disobey or leave the religion.

“Muslim groups are sending Muslims to Christian places for information.  They spy everywhere, especially where there is freedom of movement…They start non-profits and organizations everywhere, many with the purpose to intimidate Western societies.  In the US, CAIR and organizations like them are funded to push the free countries to accept them and their religion and practices.  They threaten to sue and intimidate if they don’t get their way.

“Wherever they begin to operate in villages, towns, etc they threaten others, especially moderate Muslims, and even other Imams who are not as aggressive as the jihadists…Peace in Islam means that the countries are operating under the rule of Islam, Sharia Law, and with religious leaders in charge.  That is their peace.

“There are no innocent civilians for the jihadist.  All may be killed because they are merely part of the evil societies to be cleansed.

“I am proud to be a Christian now because the Almighty God of the Christians fights for himself.  he doesn’t request or persuade anybody to fight, but instead reconciles people to Himself.  He says that vengeance should be left to him alone.  I hope the reader is able to distinguish between the God of Christians, Jehovah, and Allah…You are hereby invited to think about this:  the Islamic faith does not encourage any believer to reason out who Allah is.  The day you will reason about what you were taught in Islam, will be the day you are released from bondage and you will see the light of Christ.”

UTT believes there is a lot to learn from individuals who leave Islam and speak truthfully about the threat it poses to those inside and outside Islam who do not adhere to the sharia and all of its obligations.

To defeat an enemy we must clearly identify the threat.  The threat the civilized world faces today is not from “violent extremists” or “radical Islam” or any other euphemism we put on the face of it.  The threat, as 100% of the enemy clearly states, comes from Islam which commands its adherents to impose sharia on the earth through all means necessary.

Speaking truth is never wrong.  For the sake of those enslaved by Islam, it is the loving thing to do.

UTT Throwback Thursday: Sharia Overseas is Same Sharia in U.S.

In the wake of the Palm Sunday killings of Christians in two churches in Egypt by Muslims, UTT repeated the truth that what happens overseas is happening or will happen here.
In the U.S., sharia-compliant behavior in the Muslim community is common. This behavior includes: adult men marrying pre-teen girls, pedophilia, using zakat payments to fund jihad (“terrorism”), female genital mutilation, and others.
Attacking Christians is also sharia compliant. It is lawful in Islam to do what the two Muslims did in Egypt last Sunday (Palm Sunday). It is happening here as well.
This week, Khalil Abu Rayyan – a Muslim from the Detroit, Michigan area – pled guilty to weapons charges related to his plan to attack a Christian church and a hospital, as well as behead non-Muslims and skin them “like sheep.”

Read the Criminal Complaint for Rayyan HERE.
Where did Rayyan get the idea to kill and behead Christians?


From the most widely used text book on Islam used in U.S. Islamic junior high schools – What Islam is All About: “Islam is not a religion, however, but a complete way of life…The basis of the legal and political system is the Shari’ah of Allah…The duty of Muslim citizens is to be loyal to the Islamic State.”
What Islam is All About also has this to say about Jews and Christians:
“The Jews and the Christians are invited by Allah to examine and accept His last revelation. If any do so, they will be fulfilling the ultimate purpose of all the Prophets. If they reject it arrogantly and say Allah only sent revelation to them, then they close their hearts and invite destruction upon themselves.” (p. 82)
Sharia (Islamic Law) clearly states: “The caliph makes war upon Jews, Christians, and Zoroastrians…” (Um Dat al Salik, Reliance of the Traveller, Book O, o9.8)
Koran 5:51 legally controls relations between Muslims and non-Muslims, and states: “O you who believe! Do not take friends from the Jews and the Christians, as they are but friends of each other. And if any among you befriends them, then surely, he is one of them…”
The Tafsir legally defines every verse in the Koran. Referring to Koran 5:51, the most authoritative Tafsir in Islam, Tafsir Ibn Kathir states: “Allah forbids His believing servants from having Jews and Christians as friends because they are the enemies of Islam and its people, may Allah curse them.”
So a reasonable person can see where Khalil Abu Rayyan and others might learn to hate Christians and Jews.
So where did Rayyan get the idea to behead Christians?

“God revealed His will to the angels, saying: ‘I shall be with you. Give courage to the believers. I shall cast terror into the hearts of the infidels. Strike off their heads, strike off the very tips of their fingers.’” (Koran 8:12)
“When you meet the unbelievers in the battlefield strike off their heads.” (Koran 47:4)
The most authoritative biography of Islam’s prophet Mohammad – The Life of Mohammad, by Ibn Ishaq – records that Mohammad participated in beheading 900 Jews at the Battle of the Trench. Since the Koran commands Muslims to follow the “perfect example” of Mohammad for all time, it is easy to see how they might believe they are commanded to behead non-Muslims.
What happens overseas is happening or will happen here. The Muslim Jihadis are doing what their god Allah commands them to do in the Koran and what their prophet set as a “perfect example” for them.
Where is the misunderstanding? Where is the gray area?

2A Victory: North Dakota Governor Signs “Constitutional Carry” Bill

By Dave Workman


Gov. Doug Burgum (Source: YouTube screen capture)

Second Amendment activists have scored another victory for so-called “Constitutional Carry” as North Dakota Gov. Doug Burgum signed legislation that will allow law-abiding adults to carry concealed sidearms without a permit, according to the Bismarck Tribune and Associated Press.

State House Majority Leader Al Carlson (R-Fargo) said it was “a great day for the Second Amendment,” according to the Washington Times. The law applies to citizens over age 18 and over, and requires the person carrying the firearm to have valid identification and notify law enforcement any time there is a contact, “such as a traffic stop,” published reports say.

William Gheen to Maryland lawmakers: You’re responsible for crimes of illegals

William Gheen’s open letter message to Maryland lawmakers 3/23/2017 (Sent by email to the Maryland State House members at 9:43am)

Many lawmakers and government employees are responsible for illegal alien crimes like the gang rape at Rockville High School because they facilitate those crimes and show illegals they can break many US laws and be rewarded. That is why lawmakers in Colorado are trying to pass a new law we want to see spring up in many states which would allow the victims of illegal alien crimes to sue sanctuary policy lawmakers for damages!

Why would these young illegal aliens think any other boundaries or laws should be respected when lawmakers and government employees reward their illegal actions with sanctuary cities, welfare, free education and healthcare, scholarships and in-state tuition, driver licenses, and lots of pats on the back for breaking into America to help Democrats dominate elections?
