The JW Corruption Chronicles Preface

With that brief disclaimer, let’s introduce this JW Corruption Chronicles topic as follows.

Perhaps the first job of government is to protect and safeguard its people. That protection should include safeguards against all forms of crime and foreign attackers.

The job of news media is to report the news.  

As the insightful and compelling Shadows of Liberty documentary video posted at the link below reminds viewers, news coverage can be manipulated. News coverage can come with a hidden or thinly veiled agenda.

“Shadows of Liberty” Movie Introduction, Affordable Housing, and You

When award-winning, independent journalists and author, Sharyl Attkisson produced her left-right media divide guide, the Daily Business News immediately saw its value for our industry professionals, investor and other readers. It’s posted again, below.


Full Measure’s Sharyl Attiksson’s media bias chart is useful in sorting out the agendas behind various headlines and news sources. 

No one guide can be complete, but the above is a useful start. While reportedly 90 percent of mainstream media is in the hands of but 6 major conglomerates, that doesn’t mean that each of their individual reports are corrupted or tainted.

There are honest reporters, who seek to do their jobs well, and the same can be said of editors and producers too. News isn’t dead. But it must be discerned, and analyzed. 

One of the reasons that the founders of the United States of America (USA) included protection for the freedom of the press in the very first amendment to the Bill of Rights was to act as a watchdog against corruption in or by those in government.



Business Certainty and Safety  

Investors and savvy professionals want as much certainty as possible. No one of sound mind wants to waste time, money or resources.  

So the safety and security of people are important to investors and businesses.

Crime impacts many in the manufactured home retail and communities sectors, as well as other segments of the industry too. 

Pride and Prejudice: The Truth About Manufactured Home Communities and Crime

Terrorism can have criminal connections. Specifically, those ties are often to illegal drugs, sex or other forms of human trafficking.  

Sebastian Gorka, a terror expert, previously told MHProNews that a manufactured home business or community can be a target, just as much as any other ‘soft targets.’  

The Daily Business News on MHProNews seeks to curate topics, using a ‘separate the wheat from the chaff approach.’  

Any source can provide useful information for industry professionals, but sources and the insight ideally ought be curated for its usefulness.  

Shadows of Liberty featured several progressives, while the report below is from a more conservative/libertarian leaning group. 

With that backdrop, here is a report that you may not find on your favorite news channel or source. Its core theme is terror and related crimes. 

Bear in mind, all that it reveals about both government activities. Consider the threats to safety and security it reveals.  

At the conclusion of their unedited report, provided by them directly to MHProNews, there will be a brief conclusion and related commentary. 


ISIS Militant Quietly Released after
FBI Intervention Surfaces in Minimum Security Jail

An ISIS operative jailed in Chicago and mysteriously released after FBI intervention, has surfaced in a minimum security prison about 165 miles south of the Windy City. His name is Emad Karakrah, the ringleader of a sophisticated narco-terror operation, and in 2014 he was arrested after leading police on a high-speed chase through Chicago streets with an ISIS flag waving from his car.

When police finally captured Karakrah, he told officers his car was rigged with explosives that would detonate if searched. Bomb disposal units secured the vehicle without incident, but Karakrah’s arrest helped expose a huge narco-terrorist network with roots and financing in El Paso, Texas. Karakrah also lived in New Mexico, the border state where authorities just raided an extremist Muslim compound that trained kids to commit school shootings.

Judicial Watch uncovered Karakrah’s terrorism record and has reported extensively on his extremist activities, including a 2009 plot to bomb talk-show host Oprah Winfrey’s Chicago studios and the iconic Sears Tower. Judicial Watch also produced an investigative documentary about the narco-terrorist cell that Karakrah and other jihadists—including two of the FBI’s most wanted terrorists (Jaber A. Elbaneh and Adnan Gulshair el Shukrijumah)—operated from El Paso.

Karakrah was a logistics and transportation operative for militant Islamists in the United States, according to high-level law enforcement sources. He moved people, weapons, explosives, drugs, money, and other materiel to terrorist cells operating in Chicago, Brooklyn, New York and Saddle Brook, New Jersey, among other locations across the U.S. More than a decade ago Karakrah smuggled drugs and weapons for the renowned Juárez drug cartel in Mexico.

At some point, Karakrah reportedly became a confidential informant for the FBI, but went rogue and broke contact with his bureau handlers. This appears to be the reason that the FBI got involved in his state case, which was veiled in secrecy. Legal proceedings against Karakrah in Chicago were delayed at least twice because of FBI “equities,” sources close to the case confirmed.

An FBI agent was present during Karakrah’s proceedings in Cook County Court and the agency facilitated his release in 2015, which was kept from the public record. Judicial Watch followed the case closely and verified that Karakrah was no longer in custody of Cook County Jail.

The Illinois Department of Corrections subsequently confirmed in writing that Karakrah was not in custody. Judicial Watch’s efforts to independently ascertain Karakrah’s whereabouts were unsuccessful until recently. Karakrah has surfaced at the Lincoln Correctional Center, a minimum security facility in a town of about 14,000 residents. Karakrah’s Illinois Department of Corrections profile lists his “projected discharge date” as July 13, 2020.

The pending release is frightening considering Karakrah’s disturbing history, criminal record and documented ties to some of the world’s most dangerous jihadists. The collaboration between Mexican drug cartels and Islamic terrorists practiced by Karakrah and his cohorts has become a monstrous national security issue for the U.S. Judicial Watch has exposed a number of the enterprises as part of an ongoing investigation into the critical national security threats along the porous southern border.

Among the most distressing is that Islamic terrorists joined forces with the Juárez drug cartel years ago and the partnership has resulted in ISIS operating in a region controlled by the cartel, just a few miles from El Paso in a border area known as “Anapra” in the Mexican state of Chihuahua. Other Mexican drug cartels have smuggled nationals of terrorist countries into the U.S. for years, records uncovered by Judicial Watch show.

In one operation exposed by Judicial Watch, drug cartels smuggled nationals of terrorist countries into a small Texas rural town near El Paso. To elude the Border Patrol, they used remote farm roads to reach stash areas in Acala, a rural crossroads located around 54 miles from El Paso.

Judicial Watch also uncovered State Department records confirming that “Arab extremists” are entering the U.S. through Mexico with the assistance of smuggling network “cells.” Among them was Karakrah’s partner, Shukrijumah, the Al Qaeda operative wanted by the FBI. Shukrijumah helped plan several U.S. attacks, including plots to bomb Oprah Winfrey’s studio and detonate nuclear devices in multiple American cities.

For years Shukrijumah appeared on the FBI’s most wanted list and, despite being sought by the agency, crossed back and forth into the U.S. from Mexico to meet fellow militant Islamists in Texas. In fact, as one of the world’s most wanted terrorists, Shukrijumah piloted an aircraft into the Cielo Dorado airfield in Anthony, New Mexico.

Just last week Judicial Watch reported that an Arab man living in Mexico smuggled six citizens of Yemen—an Al Qaeda hotbed—into the U.S. through the southern border. The feds say the smuggler, 31-year-old Moayad Heider Mohammad Aldairi, conspired with “others” to sneak the six Yemeni nationals across the Texas border for a fee. ##

Commentary on the above.

The midterms are a mere 82 days away. The Trump Administration is made up of people, as is any other presidential administration.  

The vast majority of those people working in the federal government were hired prior to President Trump’s term in office began.  Just as it takes a business with new ownership time to make changes, the same is true in the vast federal government.  2,711,000 people worked for the federal government in Nov of 2014, per the Wall Street Journal.  It took over a year to get FBI agent Peter Strzok fired.

Rooting out corruption can take time. But it is worth the effort.

The U.S. economy is beginning to roll. Donald J. Trump beat the expected nominees, like much better-funded former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush, in the GOP primaries. As candidate and as president, Mr. Trump has criticized policies of predecessors on both sides of the political aisle.  

The JW “Corruption Chronicles” has an audience because it documents what they claim.  

Likewise, this MH Industry trade publication has an audience because we seek to stick with documents, evidence, reason, while tracking the record of various groups and individuals that impact our industry. 

President of the United States (POTUS) Ronald Reagan asked his supporters, ‘are you better off than you were 4 years ago?’ POTUS Trump and his supporters can ask business and professionals a similar question at the midterms. ‘Are you better off than you were 2 years ago?

Finally, for years we’ve spotlighted the distinction between

  • free enterprise,
  • crony capitalism, and
  • socialism.

Socialism is a proven failure, for over 100 years. Yet it is becoming more popular, especially among the younger generations.

Capitalism, Socialism, & Manufactured Housing
