‘Senator Schumer Turning US into Islamophobic Police State’

 Middle East Analyst Maidhc ‘O Cathail*, accuses New York Senator Charles Schumer of turning the United States into “an Islamophobic police state”. He told Press TV’s U.S. Desk in a phone interview on Thursday that Schumer is “yet another reminder of who is stoking fear of Muslims in America.”

‘O Cathail who is also an Investigative Journalist said “Senator Schumer told a Jewish radio show that “Hasham an orthodox Jewish name for ‘God’ gave him his name ‘Schumer’ which means guardian, so that he can fulfill the very important role in the U.S. Senate as the guardian of Israel.”

He added,”presumably Schumer’s God-given role also includes turning the country he is actually paid to represent, the United Sates, into an Islamophobic police state.”

“Americans concerned about what Homeland Security is doing to their civil liberties need to be asking exactly whose homeland and whose security is being protected by the likes of Schurman. It certainly isn’t America’s? ‘O Cathail told Press TV’s U.S. Desk.

Last month, Senator Charles Schumer pushed for the creation of the No Ride List – which would act similarly to the No Fly List for airlines. He said that he would push for increased funding for rail security to fund more track inspections and monitoring. Schumer called for a “no-ride” list for Amtrak trains, as a way of preventing potential terrorists from riding the rails. He also proposed increased spending on rail security, despite $50 million of cuts to the rail and port security grant program.


Calls for airlines to hand their no-fly lists to the nation’s largest rail carrier are not sitting well with New York City mayor Michael Bloomberg.

Mayor Bloomberg said he’s not keen on the idea of a “no ride” list for Amtrak trains.

This is not the first time that someone has suggested increasing security on Amtrak, which last year carried 28.7 million passengers around the country.

The September 11 Commission recommended in 2004 that travelers’ names be checked against terror watch lists before they were allowed to board boats and trains, but the idea was never implemented.

Under the current rules, airlines must submit prospective manifests of passengers to U.S. officials at least two hours before departure time so the list can be checked against that no-fly list. Makes sense. But for Amtrak? What’s next, a no-ride list for buses? A no-shop list for malls? Let’s not forget that no-cross list for busy auto intersections.

    The thing that infuriates me about Schumer is that he doesn’t give a fat rat’s ass about the long-term unemployed here in the USA, but he is determined to ransack and pillage our national treasury for the benefit of Israel.

    I second that condemnation…. he was also one of the traitors in congress who is calling for the release of the israeli spy, officially responsible for the deaths of more Americans and the release of more national security secretes than ANY other foreign spy in US history….. So, It’s No surprise to see him pledging aligence to tel-aviv at all.

    “….The September 11 Commission recommended in 2004 that travelers’ names be checked against terror watch lists before they were allowed to board boats…..”

    Why didn’t they recommend a list of the names of those who invested in the PUT options? Why didn’t they note the fact that there were no Arab passengers on the passenger manifestos. The 911 Commission was a paid off whitewash with no credibility. And the day is coming when it will be common knowledge.

    Schumer is not alone. The Israel-firsters are in the majority.

    One thing that is NEVER addressed amidst these zionist criminals crimes.
    WHO VOTES THEM IN? THEY are responsible for all of this. USA is not Iraq where only a dictatorship is in power, tho it is fast becoming one.

    Bishoff, there’s a certain amount of “vote them in” and there’s a certain amount of ELECTRONIC VOTING MACHINE “programming”. We cannot be sure of anything any more in US elections until we return to hand counted paper ballots that are verifiable. It worked for centuries.

    The US government is SATURATED with Israel-firsters – like a soggy potato chip. EVERY candidate is vetted through AIPAC and/or ADL. Both of these organizations are Israeli SPY institutions and should be registered as foreign agents.

    Dear Bishoff, All indications are that the Rothschild cartel/Rockefeller controlled Council on Foreign Relations and their wall-to-wall TV news/ propaganda with the bottomless expense account for all ‘cooperating candidates’ gives America no other visiion as to what is available in voting machines rigged when necessary. Though other candidates exist, they are continuously bad-mouthed and lied about by this CFR controlled opiate of the masses. What do we do about it?

    Since we can’t put the fear of God into them, like they are trying to do with the’faux-panicky’ delivery of 9-11, the DH oil well in the GOM, the ARM and derivative fraud and all the other crap their allies are doing in their attacks on the U.S., we are forced to reject television in all its forms. Walt Disney produced a movie long ago, which featured lemmings ‘running off cliffs’. The poor little creatures were actually being tossed off a cliff. This was way back in the early 1960s. Each year of CFR domination of TV reminds me of the lemmings and voting. If we do not intentionally run off the cliffs, the CFR will drive us off the cliffs. Or arrange our being drafted into their lying wars.
    Does this help?

    More importantly why is the government allowed to have no fly lists at all? These black lists are UNCONSTITUTIONAL. If you are on these lists you are being materially punished for an allegation, suggestion, hint or possibility that you might do something. Come on people this is material taking with monetary value on the part of the government with NO DUE PROCESS, no trial by jury, no right to face yoru accusers. How many times have people been put on these lists because they are politically incorrect or just disliked by someone in government. These lists and the people that make and feed them should be stopped right now. We are supposed to be a nation of laws these lists are a gross violation of the law and the Constitution.
    Wake up people!!!

    There is only one way to get Congress to get a spine and toe the constitutional line. We do not permit them the option. The TV set will scream bloody-hell and lie while congress goes into turbo-mewl. The objective behind the Council on Foreign Relations, by charter, is the destruction of the U.S. constitutional government and resorption into the European royal fold with its ‘global warming’ defective science sponsored by some Al Gore cluck who could not do a simple 100 level science class at Harvard, so he took ‘Natural Science and got a ‘D’ in it. Just before he claimed to invent the internet. The pomp and stuffed shirtedness and obsolete truckloads of bling that is Europe no longer has slaves and is falling apart. GOOD!!! They are pimping out the U.S.A. via President B.O. for the banks and castle crowd. Dump the Fed. FREEDOM!!!!!
