That's what it was. He just slipped through the cracks, those cracks having been purposefully cut, though, into the already long cracked, crazed, and crumbling immigration system by the Biden Administration over the past year. I'l get to that, but let me divert back to the previous post for a minute.
Mr. Hail wrote a number of good comments under that post. I have no argument with his points other than to note that Peak Stupidity does not often get into long analysis. My not being a customer, or consumer, if you will, of the Lyin' Press Infotainment whatsoever, ALL I'd read of that story was just references in Unz Review comments until Steve Sailer's funny take on the usual "British Man" (or whatever it is each time) lie. Then, as I read the VDare article I will point out here, I noted the "Blackburn, Lancashire" "origin" of this Malik Faisal Akram and proceeded to blog accordingly. The yahoo headline came out as I did my occasional search for "Peak Stupidity" there, ya know, to support the team. That just added to the fun.
This Texas hostage deal was not any special big story. (As Mr. Hail wrote, had this happened to a Church rather than a Synagogue, we'd probably have never heard about it. White Christian worshippers are the lowest of the low to our elites.) It appears as if the Lyin' Press lacks perspective, but this was Infotainment, because "stand off". "What's gonna happen next?! We'll be back after the commercial break with MOAR!"
Again, I have not followed the story (and others they've got) other than via people I do read from, so I ask the reader if he has heard anything from the Lyin' Press about the immigration aspect of this. It's a major point to make. Questions like this should have been asked - yes, on TV: How did Mr. Akram get into the US? What did he come here for? Did he have any legitimate reason? and Who let him pass through? Was there any of that discussion? I truly don't know, but then I read VDare, so I am kept up with all this.
The long-term writer there named "Federale is a former insider from, or maybe he even still works in, the US Gov't immigration realm. I wrote "realm" because agency names have changed multiple times, and I don't want to get it wrong. Suffice it to say that "Federale" was obviously in what we would call the Border Patrol and knows about the Customs/Immigration procedures at airports of entry too. He was/is a field guy, not an office staffer.
VDare posted Federale's In Joe Biden’s America, BIPOC Terrorists Are Welcome yesterday. Here's the intro:
For all his faults, and Jared Kushner, Kirstjen Nielsen and Rod Rosenstein are just some of those faults, Donald Trump at least tried to keep terrorists out of the country. In fact, President Trump tried hard to keep Muslim terrorists out, but was met with great resistance by the kritarchs and terrorist sympathizers in the United States. After the first Muslim ban was instituted, thousands of sympathizers rallied at airports to show their support for Black, Indigenous, People Of Color (BIPOC) killers.(I'm still not down with this BIPOC terminology that Federale keeps using, which sounds to me like a type of circuit board, but anyway ...) He's got the details of which agency does what here:
Despite the demonstrations and interference by kritarchs, a partial Muslim ban was put into effect. What was more important was that those charged with inspecting arriving BIPOC terrorists were allowed to do their job; identify, arrest, and deport arriving BIPOC terrorists. The agency charged with inspecting arriving BIPOC terrorists is U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP), the component of the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) charged with actually protecting our borders and making decisions as to the admissibility of aliens at Ports-of-Entry (POE) upon their arrival into the United States. These inspections are executed by Customs and Border Protection Officers (CBPO) assigned to the Office of Field Operations.The new guy that Biden appointed to be in charge is described:
CBP is currently headed by Biden nominee Chris Magnus, a notorious homosexual and vocal supporter of illegal immigration and racial discrimination against hiring White males.Mr. Akram is not a Brit in the real sense, but being a citizen of the UK, he would not need a visa. However, he still had to fill out a form (probably on-line), called an ESTA , that had to be approved before the airline would let him board back on the other end**.
We now know that the BIPOC and Muslim terrorist, Malik Faisal Akram, who attacked a house of worship in Texas, had a long criminal history, a public history of supporting Muslim BIPOC terrorism, and a history of mental illness. Despite this, Chris Magnus ensured that he was able to enter the United States.Besides this initial step, having arrived at the port of entry, John Freaking Kennedy airport, Mr. Akram would have gone through the Customs*** & Immigration line like anyone else. Federale explains that there were really 2 safeguards to screen out a guy like this, the initial inspection of his passport with the questioning by a guy at a booth**** and, were he to be suspected of something - well, they do have computers to check records there - he would be sent to secondary phase of screening.
Now, I've been there, even through the secondary meeting more than once (long story). Of course, I and the likely many men-about-the-world readers and commenters here on Peak Stupidity have seen and been through the basic C&I rigamarole. (I've been through it in China even.) The biggest problem is usually just long, long lines. Then, I've seen some surly assholes in those booths, let me tell you. Tell the wrong joke, hell, any joke, and you may be there extra long and even miss a flight connection. They don't care. Just answer the questions. However, this is one place within the US Gov't that I don't mind running into surly assholes. That keeps out the riff-raff, well, unless the President orders them to stand down, letting mentally-ill British guys on jihad, such at Malik Faisal Akram, get into our country with ease.
Please read the rest of Federale's article for details, since you got this far. It's not like the Lyin' Press is gonna' cover this very important part of the story. Yes, it's perhaps THE key point. If enemies of America were not let in willy-nilly, there would have been no such incident. Open-borders advocates. What CAN'T they ruin?!
* I have one more point still about that yahoo headline I showed yesterday. I'll post that tomorrow.
** That's a big burden on the gate agents for outbound international flights. They must make sure they don't let someone on who will get stuck in limbo at the other end, as in the movie Terminal with Tom Hanks - in the movie it was due to different and weird circumstances, but it shows the purpose for holding people behind.
*** Really, Customs has become less and less of a deal as of late, IMO. Part of its purpose is about the smuggling of items - nowadays cheap Chinese knockoffs (yeah, we're gonna stop THAT!), the drugs, I suppose, and then the food products that may carry strange diseases. There is so much international travel and trade these days that the latter has become just silly. Does anyone care about the drugs anymore?
**** Getting ahead of myself and Federale here, I've seen so many foreign-looking people that work there though, that I figure there's got to be corruption all over the place, which is my suspicion especially for how most of the (easily in the millions) Chinese illegal aliens get in.
