Police Tracked Cell Phone to Find Person of Interest in Potential Presidential Threat

The suspect was reportedly driving a car with Connecticut plates

Hamden, Connecticut, police say that a vehicle believed to be driven by a suspicious person who may have threatened President Barack Obama has been located and a person involved was taken into custody late Friday night.

According to Hamden Police, a Volkswagen Jetta was located on Mix Avenue in Hamden, where the person's address was listed, late Friday.

Hamden Police say that, along with Connecticut State Police and the Secret Service, they converged on the car outside an ice rink.

The Secret Service took a person into custody for questioning after tracking the individual's cell phone.

"If American interests are at stake," I said in September, "then it is incumbent upon those advocating for military action to convince Congress and the American people of that threat. Too often, the debate begins and ends with an assertion that our national interest is at stake without any evidence of that assertion. The burden of proof lies with those who wish to engage in war."

Amid ISIS violence, Saudi king warns of threat to U.S.
RIYADH, Saudi Arabia -- The king of Saudi Arabia has warned that extremists could attack Europe and the U.S. if there is not a strong international response to terrorism after Islamist extremists seized a wide territory across Iraq and Syria.
While not mentioning any terrorist groups by name, King Abdullah's statement appeared aimed at drawing Washington and NATO forces into a wider fight against the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria, or ISIS, and its supporters in the region. Saudi Arabia openly backs rebels fighting Syrian President Bashar Assad, but is concerned that the breakaway al Qaeda group could also turn those very same weapons on the kingdom.
"I am certain that after a month they will reach Europe and, after another month, America," he said at a reception for foreign ambassadors Friday.
Official Saudi media carried the king's comments early Saturday.
"These terrorists do not know the name of humanity and you have witnessed them severing heads and giving them to children to walk with in the street," the king said, urging the ambassadors to relay his message directly to their heads of state.
CBS News correspondent Julianna Goldman reports from Washington that President Obama didn't talk military planning Friday night when he met with Democratic donors, but he said that he understands that Americans are anxious about the growing threat of ISIS, and he acknowledged that it's a dangerous time in the Middle East.
A day after the president said that he doesn't have a strategy yet for confronting ISIS, also known as the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant, or ISIL, in Syria, White House press secretary Josh Earnest said Mr. Obama is waiting for his defense secretary to present a plan.
"There are some who probably would make the case that it's OK to not have a formulated, comprehensive strategy but, just as one pundit I know recently suggested, that we could just go drop some bombs and see what happens," Earnest told reporters Friday. "That is not what the president believes is a smart approach."
Obama: "We don't have a strategy yet" on ISIS in Syria
Echoing that message, Pentagon spokesman Adm. John Kirby said the Defense Department doesn't have binders full of plans at any given moment.
"Planners down in Tampa and planners here in the Pentagon continually refine and change and update planning options for potential military activity," Kirby told reporters Friday. "It is an ongoing effort."
The U.S. military campaign against ISIS is so far limited to targets in Iraq, but Mr. Obama is considering expanding the mission to also include Syria, where this week he ordered surveillance flights.
ISIS has been fighting moderate rebels, other extremists and Assad's forces in Syria for nearly three years. Iraq has faced an onslaught by the Sunni extremists and their supporters since early this year, and the country continues to be roiled by instability.
While providing arms and support to Sunni militants in Syria, Saudi Arabia has denied directly funding or backing ISIS.
Let the Saudis put their money where their mouths are; after all, all of the highjackers were Saudis; Pres. Bush allowed them all to leave the US after 9/11; how many pages of the 9/11 commission report remain sealed? Why can't Syria, Saudi Arabia, Jordan, Iraq etc. all band together and kill ISIS off? Why is that so impossible? Let them clean up their own mess.
Perhaps the US and all the European countries should deny entry of any Arabs into their countries.
Also, any American young men travelling to Pakistan, or Afghanistan etc. for long periods and returning, should not be allowed back in. Put a stop to their movement completely, it can't be that hard to do. If the Saudis deny sending them aid, let them find the Saudis who are and stop it. They have the money to stop anything if they want to. Why should the Americans be their father?

Have you forgotten that a few years ago you were maintaining that you were an Independent which would imply taht you had an open mind, obviously that was one of your many documented lies, and also an attempt at gaining creditability which was laughable then and even more so now. So you see dumbo when it comes to a hypocrite you have few equals. I daily along with many on here laugh at your utter stupidity.

No. She is a devious liar. EVERYONE knows that the Churchill bust is located in the White House residence but Kvetch was raised on the "tell a lie often enough and keep repeating it, people will eventually come to believe it" or, at the very least, it will succeed in denigrating the president.
The Rethug Mantra: Truth is our greatest enemy.
Churchill bust welcomed back to US Capitol after Obama 'snub'
US leaders hailed the American-British alliance as "one of history's true love stories" as they unveiled a statue of Winston Churchill inside the Capitol building


"Winston Spencer Churchill was the best friend the United States ever had," said John Boenher, the speaker of the House, at the commemoration ceremony.
Mr Boehner was joined inside the Capitol, a building British forces tried to burn down in 1814, by leaders of both parties as they paid tribute to the former prime minister.
Both Republicans and Democrats noted that Churchill's mother was an American and that he had a deep admiration for the country he called "the Great Republic".
But they admitted that the only person ever granted an honourary US passport also had some reservations about America, complaining that the newspapers were too fat and the toilet roll too thin.
"This man was an original in every respect," said John Kerry, the US secretary of state, telling how Churchill once walked around naked in front of Franklin Roosevelt.

"We are sometimes all of us separated by oceans and we are separated by political party or by ideology but this bust will remind us of the bridges that we must build to span the gaps so that the work of democracy can continue," Mr Kerry said.
The ceremony was attended by Nicholas Soames, Churchill's grandson who is also a conservative MP, who called it a "wonderful, resonant and fitting tribute".

The unveiling went significantly more smoothly than the last time Washington focused on a bust of the wartime prime minister.
When Barack Obama was sworn in as president, the White House returned a bust of Churchill to the British embassy, which had loaned it to George W Bush.
Mr Obama's aides angrily denied they had returned the bust to the embassy or that the move was intended to show "antipathy towards the British".
But days later they were forced to backtrack, admitting the bust had in fact been sent back and that they had mistaken it for a similar piece that has been in the White House since the 1960s.
The new bust will be displayed inside Congress's statuary hall alongside former political leaders and American icons like Rosa Parks, the black woman who famously refused to move to the back of an Alabama bus.
Mr Boehner said he hoped members of Congress would come to it if they were "looking for counsel of just hoping to feel a little braver".

History Lesson 101:
When President Reagan entered office in 1981, he faced actually much worse economic problems than President Obama faced in 2009. By 1981-1982, unemployment had soared into double digits at a peak of 10.8%. At the same time America suffered roaring double-digit inflation with the CPI registering at 11.3% in 1979 and 13.5% in 1980 (25% in two years). The Washington establishment at the time argued that this inflation was now endemic to the American economy, and could not be stopped, at least not without a calamitous economic collapse.
All of the above was accompanied by double -digit interest rates with the prime rate peaking at 21.5% in 1980. The poverty rate started increasing in 1978 eventually climbing by an astounding 33% from 11.4% to 15.2%. A fall in real median family income that began in 1978 snowballed to a decline of almost 10% by 1982. In addition, from 1968 to 1982, the Dow Jones industrial average lost 70% of its real value, reflecting an overall collapse of stocks.
The Reagan recovery started in official records in November 1982 and lasted 92 months without a recession until July 1990 when the tax increases of the 1990 budget deal killed it.
During Reagan's seven-year recovery, the economy grew by almost one-third, the equivalent of adding the entire economy of West Germany, the third-largest in the world at the time, to the U.S. economy. In 1984 alone real economic growth boomed by 6.8%, the highest in 50 years. Nearly 20 million new jobs were created during the recovery, increasing U.S. civilian employment by almost 20%. Unemployment fell to 5.3% by 1989.

Obama went the exact opposite direction of Reagan. We're still struggling to get a foothold on the economy in 2014. By the time Obama leaves office and Obamacare does a bigger number on the economy, Obama's sluggish recovery will have lasted longer than Reagan's seven-year robust recovery after turning things around in his first two years in office.
It's also why 65-70% of Americans believe we're still going in the wrong direction.
seems Reagan proved increasing taxes does work.

Mindless blather.

The policies of the George W Bush administration nearly destroyed this nation's economy along with that of many other nations.

BTW dirtbag, plenty of folks made out very nicely during the Carter era financial hiccup.
