    A man from the Middle East was recently arrested in Texas for being illegally in possession of a firearm after federal law enforcement say that he began planning a terrorist attack against Jews.

    Sohaib Abuayyash, 20, came to the U.S. on "a tourist visa and liv[ed] illegally in the U.S. for several months," before he applied for asylum status, which was still pending when he was arrested in Houston late last month, according to a report from KHOU 11 News Houston.

    CNN reported that when FBI Director Christopher Wray mentioned during Senate testimony this week that the FBI arrested a man in Houston "who'd been studying how to build bombs and posted online about his support for killing Jews," he was specifically referring to Abuayyash.

    Numerous publications originally identified Abuayyash as a Jordanian national, however, the U.S. Department of Justice said in a press release on Friday afternoon that he was a "Palestinian citizen." The DOJ confirmed that he was "an alien illegally and unlawfully in the United States."

    A federal judge ordered that Abuayyash be detained pending trial after making "statements to others that support the killing of individuals of particular religious faiths" and allegedly targeting "an event in Houston for members of a particular religious group."

    A law enforcement source told CNN that he was "plotting to attack a Jewish gathering."

    The FBI opened its criminal investigation into Abuayyash in August after agents discovered a video of him at a shooting range using semi-automatic firearms, the report said. Given his status, he was not allowed to "possess or use firearms or ammunition."

    Court documents said that Abuayyash "in direct contact with others who share a radical mindset, has been conducting physical training, and has trained with weapons to possibly commit an attack."

    He also "viewed specific and detailed content posted by radical organizations on the internet including lessons on how to construct bombs or explosive devices; and that Defendant has made statements to others that support the killing of individuals of particular religious faiths," court documents added. He had referenced "martyrdom" and "referenced an event in Houston for members of a particular religious group."

    Federal law enforcement officials took him off the streets by arresting him with the most immediate charge they could bring forward, unlawful possession of a firearm, while more charges may be added at a later date.

Should the Institutionalized Corruption of the Biden /Harris Administration, in this separate instance the Open Border Policy of our Sovereign Southern Border, be not only tolerated, but sanctioned by the raising of local spending by local politicians to pay for these now visible and known effects of rampant, and out-of-control Illegal Immigration?
  Yes, it is a kind thing to do, and a way that our county, our state can aid in this tremendous effort toward local federal foreign aid; and now, thankfully, in great abundance.
  No, our Constitutional Republic WILL NOT continue to exist, as our United States of America, if we do not control our sovereign borders, to protect our citizens, to keep them solvent and safe.
  I only consider what is topical and popular since my friends, too, only care to do the same.

In light of continued developments, primarily since 2008, there exists in these United States a Legal System which operates on a proved Two Tiered approach to justice rendered, which primarily benefits Democratic Elites and Woke Ideological Virtue Signalers, representing their co-dependent wards, to the expressed exclusion of normal hardworking American citizens: What is your suggestion in remedying this widespread injustice and, if not corrected, its existential outcome for our Constitutional Republic?
  Complete overhaul of the Department of Justice and their enforcers - the FBI - to reflect a far more honest justice system to keep patriots remaining calm.
  Disband the FBI, and request that congress investigate all unethical and non patriotic practices to partially right the wrongs of a distrusted and politically weaponized "Department of Justice."
  Continue with the current system since the two tiered justice system has been so remarkably beneficial to Democratic Socialist political hegemony; chronic distrust in institutions notwithstanding.

In the minds of many, since January 20, 2021, the World has become far less safe in every theater of conflict, beginning with the attack of Israel by Iran /Hamas, so the question becomes: What caused this Worldwide calamity of extreme geopolitical dysfunction, and what will correct it?
  Joe Biden is the cause of this frightening Worldwide situation, and it will end when a Republican is elected president.
  This delayed Worldwide dysfunction and constant conflict is all Donald Trump's fault, as it is with everything that occurs going forward, and long before the man ever became the 45th president..
  Joe Biden is the "root cause" of this frightening Worldwide situation, and it will end when former President Donald John Trump is elected president.
  In the imitable words of Alfred E. Newman: "What, me worry?"
