Tahmooressi family confirms release of Sgt . Andrew Tahmooressi after 214 days in Mexican Jail and asks for privacy


Whoever dwells in the shelter of the Most High will rest in the shadow of the Almighty. I will say of the LORD, “He is my refuge and my fortress, my God, in whom I trust.” – Psalm 91: 1-2

It is with an overwhelming and humbling feeling of relief that we confirm that Andrew was released today after spending 214 days in Mexican Jail. He is back on American soil and will shortly resume treatment for both his pre-existing Combat Related PTSD and the residual effects of months of incarceration – which has taken a toll on him far worse than his two tours in Afghanistan.

We will never be able to adequately express our gratitude for the outpouring of support for Andrew and for us during this ordeal. We are asking the media and the general public to understand that Andrew needs privacy, time and space to decompress from the trauma of the past several months.

Our family also needs privacy and space as we attempt to support him in the resumption of his treatment and his reentry into normal life. As Andrew regains his strength, he will, in his own time and own way, appropriately acknowledge all those whose efforts were so important to winning his release.

To all those across the country who walked shoulder to shoulder with us as we fought for Andrew, we thank you. It has reminded us that at a time of much discord, Americans can come together for one of their heroes, and we have never been more proud to be Americans. The support we received for the We The People petition was overwhelming and deeply humbling.

The depth of our gratitude cannot be adequately expressed in words. So many have relentlessly shared our anguish and our prayerful pleas to the Almighty. Let the message today be that our pleas were answered. We do want to recognize everyone who has played a role in securing his release.

First, we are forever mindful of the power of prayer and we are so humbled that our Heavenly Father answered our calls. This journey, though an ordeal, has been blessed with the peace that surpasses all understanding that only the Holy Spirit through our belief in Jesus Christ can provide. Throughout this process we searched for purpose in God’s will and perfect timing.

We even take comfort in new, visible U-turn signage at the San Ysidro border crossing to provide direction for motorists which we hope will save others the ordeal we have endured.

We also want to acknowledge and thank those who played an invaluable role in Andrew’s case, our family owes them a debt of gratitude.

• The Honorable Presiding Judge in Andrew’s case who was engaged, highly professional and also was kind enough to always allow Jill to see Andrew at the Courthouse during each appearance.


Andrew Tahmooressi released from Mexican jail after 214 days

by Jazz Shaw / HotAir

There’s only so much diplomatic pushing you can do while the prisoner is still on the wrong side of the border, but there needs to be a serious reevaluation of our relations with Mexico after this.

Following all these months of imprisonment, Marine Sgt. Andrew Tahmooressi is back in the United States.
After 214 days in a Mexican prison, Sgt. Andrew Tahmooressi crossed the US – Mexican border Friday night, boarding a private jet for Florida shortly after 9 p.m., after a strong diplomatic push convinced a judge to release the former Marine on humanitarian grounds.
His release comes after a lengthy trial and a Congressional hearing in September highly critical of Obama Administration efforts to secure his release and Mexico’s refusal to let him go. Tahmooressi said he made an innocent mistake the evening he crossed into Tijuana with three weapons in his truck on March 31.
While his defense rested its case several weeks ago, Tahmooressi’s release came only after a strong diplomatic push from former Gov. Bill Richardson of New Mexico and Reps. Ed Royce (R-CA) and Matt Salmon (R-AZ).
While not mentioned in the initial splash, also part of the delegation to Mexico was … Montel Williams. (I’d been wondering what Montel was up to when he wasn’t shilling for payday loan companies.) 

There needs to be some sort of meeting of the minds between the United States and Mexico, because this entire episode is beyond outrageous. There has yet to be a single item offered up by Mexican authorities to indicate that the original incident was anything other than what had been described by Tahmooressi. He took a wrong turn in his truck and wound up at the border by accident. He wasn’t a drug mule. He wasn’t a human smuggler. He wasn’t a gun runner, though he had a few of his own personal – and legal – weapons with him in the truck. Holding one of our Marines for this long should have serious diplomatic repercussions for the Mexicans.

The other insulting aspect of how this was resolved was the acceptance of Mexico’s description of it as a humanitarian release. The Marine suffers from PTSD and the judge ostensibly acquitted him because he requires care which was unavailable in Mexico. While Tahmooressi deserves and should receive all the treatment and support he needs as one of our returning war veterans, this rationale carries with it the implication that Mexico was correct to pursue the case all this time, but they’re doing us a favor because they’re such nice, caring people. And that’s a load of horse hockey.

Enrique Peña Nieto should be publicly apologizing to Tahmooressi, his family and the entire nation.

If he doesn’t wish to do so, we need to be taking a look at the more than three quarters of a billion dollars in aid we send to Mexico each year. This country made a big show for months on end for “apprehending” one of our Marines and “bringing him to justice” when they can’t even keep tabs on the mayor of one of their own cities who arranges for an entire class of students to disappear courtesy of drug lords, possibly to turn up in a mass grave.

There are limits to how polite we need to be in the name of acting like good neighbors. And Mexico is not being a good neighbor in this case.


“This is not the same industry we had 15 years ago,” Natural Gas Supply Association VP Jennifer Fordham said recently. That’s an understatement. The oil, petrochemical and manufacturing industries are also far different from those of 15 years ago.

Together, they’ve created hundreds of thousands of new jobs and generated countless billions of dollars in economic activity. No thanks to the Obama Administration.

From EPA to Interior and even the Energy Department, the Administration continues to display a strong animosity toward fossil fuels. Its war on coal has hounded mines, power plants, jobs and communities. Its opposition to the Keystone XL pipeline has thwarted the creation of tens of thousands of construction jobs. Its bans on leasing, drilling and hydraulic fracturing on federal onshore and offshore lands have caused a 6% drop in oil production from those lands and a 28% plunge in natural gas output – costing thousands of jobs and tens of billions in bonus, rent, royalty and tax revenues to the U.S. Treasury.

Nevertheless, you’d think Obama regulators and policy makers would support natural gas pipelines. Even the Sierra Club promoted this fuel as a “clean alternative to coal” just a couple years ago. But no.

The fracking revolution on America’s state and private lands has unleashed a gusher of mammoth proportions. In just six years, 2008-2014, it has generated a 58% increase in oil production (from 5 million to 8 million barrels per day) – and a 21% rise in natural gas production. By the end of this year, U.S. crude oil production is projected to reach 9 million bpd. In the Marcellus Shale region, gas production is expected to reach 16 billion cubic feet a day, twice the volume of only two years ago.

However, this miraculous cornucopia is overwhelming the nation’s existing delivery systems and, far from striving to eliminate the bottleneck, the Obama Administration is creating new ones.

Not having the Keystone pipeline to transport Upper Midwest crude to refineries has forced oil companies to move that oil by train. Rail accidents have caused spills and deaths, but the regulatory focus has been on stronger tanker cars, with insufficient attention paid to track maintenance and safety – or pipelines.

Insufficient natural gas pipelines mean producers cannot deliver this vital fuel to homes, hospitals, factories and electricity generating plants, or to petrochemical plants that use it as a feed stock for literally thousands of products. Pipeline companies are clamoring for construction permits.

With supplies rising, prices for oil and natural gas are declining. Global crude oil prices have fallen more than $20 a barrel and are cheaper in the United States than in Europe. Natural gas prices in the Marcellus area have been about half the U.S. benchmark price, which is below $4 per thousand cubic feet (mcf), compared to prices as high as $9 or even $20 per mcf (or Btu) in Europe and Asia. As a result, despite a clear need for gas, some drillers are re-examining their Marcellus plans, and an estimated 1,750 Pennsylvania natural gas wells are not currently producing because pipeline connections are not available.

Kerry: Islamic jihad “exploits a legitimate and beautiful religion”

Pamela Geller / Atlas  Shrugs


Here again the leading scholar of Islam tells us what it is or what it’s not. Nuts.
Secretary Kerry, are these Islamic groups also exploiting a “legitimate and beautiful religion,” while they invoke the quran and Islamic texts and teachings myriad times daily?: Hamas, Hezb’allah, Boko Haram, the Muslim Brotherhood and these other designated Islamic terrorist organizations:

Abdullah Azzam Shaheed Brigade,
Abu Nidal Organization,
Abu Sayyaf,
al-Aqsa Foundation,
al-Aqsa Martyrs’ Brigades,
al-Gama’a al-Islamiyya,
Al Ghurabaa,
al-Haramain Foundation,
Al-Itihaad al-Islamiya,
al-Qaeda in Iraq,
al-Qaeda in the Islamic Maghreb,

Spain’s security chief: Islamic State wants to use Ebola as jihad weapon
/ Jihad Watch
DeathtoIslamicStateWhy wouldn’t they want to do this? After all, they love death.
Islamic supremacists frequently affirm how much they love death.

Austrian Muslim teenage girls who recently traveled to Syria for jihad announced: “Death is our goal.” Boko Haram leader Abubakar Shekau said: “I’m even longing for death, you vagabond.” A Muslim child preacher recently taunted those he has been taught to hate most: “Oh Zionists, we love death for the sake of Allah, just as much as you love life for the sake of Satan.” Jihad mass murderer Mohamed Merah said that he “loved death more than they loved life.”

Ayman al-Zawahiri’s wife advised Muslim women: “I advise you to raise your children in the cult of jihad and martyrdom and to instil in them a love for religion and death.” And as one jihadist put it, “We love death. You love your life!” And another: “The Americans love Pepsi-Cola, we love death.” That was from Afghan jihadist Maulana Inyadullah.

This idea comes from the Qur’an: Say, “O you who are Jews, if you claim that you are allies of Allah, excluding the people, then wish for death, if you should be truthful.” (62:6)

“Isis wants to spread Ebola: security chief,” The Local, October 30, 2014 (thanks to The Religion of Peace):
The Spanish government is taking seriously discussions in internet chat rooms on how terrorists could use biological weapons including Ebola in its war against the West, a top official said in parliament on Wednesday.
Spain’s state secretary for security, Francisco Martínez, has told Congress that jihadists with connections to the extremist force Isis have discussed on internet forums how they could use Ebola as a weapon against the United States and the West in general.
Speaking on Wednesday in the congressional Interior Committee, Martínez pointed to internet conversations of this kind as proof that jihadists treat cyberspace as “an extension of the battlefield”.
The state secretary said that it was necessary to combat the online challenge posed by extremists’ use of the internet, explaining that terrorist groups have identified six objectives in their online activities: “Threatening enemies through propaganda, preparing operations, exchanging information, ideological training, recruiting new members and acquiring finance”.
According to Spain’s RTVE public broadcasting corporation, the interior ministry number two said there had been “many examples” of threats to use the Ebola virus and other toxins in a new form of terrorism offensive against the West, referring specifically to three recent cases.
Most recently there was the “jihadist chat room” conversation discovered in mid-September in which “the use of Ebola as a poisonous weapon against the United States” was discussed in a forum Martínez described as “linked to Isis”.
The security chief also mentioned a series of tweets from July in which, he said, the terrorist organization Ansar al-Islam was shown to be considering the use of “deadly chemical products from laboratories”.
Finally, Martínez told his audience of lawmakers that Isis’s spokesman had issued an internet call for supporters to kill Westerners, including civilians, by any means possible, including “poisonous injections”….
