State Department Silent Over Federally Funded University’s Plan To Host A U.S. Designated Terrorist

Mum’s the word from the U.S. Department of State, which chose not to respond to the controversy surrounding a member of a U.S. designated terrorist organization speaking at San Francisco State University this Wednesday.

State Department confirmed that they had received this reporter’s request for comment on Thursday morning and promised to provide a response. However, after multiple attempts, they chose to not respond.

Ranking Member of the House Intelligence Committee Rep. Devin Nunes, R-CA, however, said in a statement to that it’s unconscionable that SFSU is planning to host Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine (PFLP) terrorist Leila Khaled.

“This is just the latest of countless indications that higher education has become hopelessly politicized and is in dire need of a severe course correction,” said Nunes. “These schools should be educating our next generation of leaders, but instead they’re spreading a harmful, extremist ideology that champions terrorists and hijackers.”

Meanwhile, it looks like Khaled will speak via video teleconference without any repercussions from the U.S. government that funds the university.

PFLP is a State Department-designated Foreign Terrorist Organization, which raises questions as to why the State Department has refused to comment on the university’s decision.

Khaled was integral in two separate hijackings. In 1969, she was part of a team of terrorists that diverted TWA Flight 840 from Rome to Tel Aviv to Damascus, Syria. She also attempted in 1970 to hijack El Al flight 219 from Amsterdam to New York City on “Black September,” which refers to a series of simultaneous hijacking attacks that occurred in a single day.

A number of Khaled’s victims and student groups have condemned SFSU and called on the University to stop the event. However, SFSU President Lynn Mahoney defends her appearance, citing free speech.

Hunter Biden Indicted on Federal Gun Charges Amidst Special Counsel Investigation

In a significant development, Hunter Biden, the son of President Joe Biden, was indicted on Thursday on federal gun charges as part of Special Counsel David Weiss’ ongoing investigation. The indictment alleges that Hunter Biden made false statements during the purchase of a firearm, among other charges.

The charges against Hunter Biden include:

• Making a false statement in the purchase of a firearm

• Making a false statement related to information required to be kept by a federal firearms licensed dealer

•Possession of a firearm by a person who is an unlawful user of or addicted to a controlled substance

According to the indictment, the alleged incident occurred on or about October 12, 2018, in the District of Delaware. Hunter Biden is accused of knowingly making a false and fictitious written statement during the acquisition of a Colt Cobra 38SPL Revolver. According to reports from Fox News, the statement, submitted on Form 4473, falsely certified that he was not an unlawful user of, and addicted to, any stimulant, narcotic drug, or controlled substance.

Furthermore, the indictment further states that between October 12, 2018, and October 23, 2018, in the District of Delaware, Hunter Biden knowingly possessed the same firearm despite being an unlawful user of and addicted to controlled substances. This marks the first set of charges brought by Special Counsel David Weiss against Hunter Biden since being granted special counsel status.

The investigation came to public attention when it was reported by Fox News in 2021 that police had responded to an incident in 2018 involving a gun owned by Hunter Biden.

Reports state that, Hallie Biden, the widow of President Biden’s late son, Beau, who was in a relationship with Hunter at the time, discarded the gun. Hunter’s gun was thrown away in a dumpster near a market, located close to a school. It was subsequently revealed that Hunter Biden had purchased a gun earlier that same month.

Hunter Biden’s legal troubles do not end with the gun charges. Earlier in July, an original plea agreement collapsed, which would have seen him plead guilty to two misdemeanor tax counts for willful failure to pay federal income tax, thus avoiding jail time on a felony gun charge. Instead, he pleaded not guilty to two misdemeanor tax charges and one felony gun charge.

Attorney General Merrick Garland appointed David Weiss as special counsel to oversee the Hunter Biden investigation and related matters. The White House has declined to comment on these developments, which continue to draw significant public and media attention.
