As published in Townhall.com http://townhall.com/columnists/joeconnor/2016/09/04/flight-to-terror-n2213667 Among much fanfare, direct flights between the US and Cuba began this week. With those flights will go billions of American dollars. Infusing the hard currency of American tourism into the terrorist harboring, repressive, Marxist, Cuban state is hardly a reason to celebrate; at least not for Americans. Billions that would otherwise have stayed in the US or have gone to other Caribbean nations, many of whom have been loyal American allies will now prop up a regime that has been our enemy for more than half a century. In addition to its well documented history of antagonism against the US, for decades the murderous Castro regime has provided safe harbor to convicted terrorist bomber William Morales and BLA cop killer Joanne Chesimard among the 70 US fugitives currently in Cuba. In 1973, as a leader of the Black Liberation Army, Joanne Chesimard (aka Assata Shakur) murdered New Jersey State Trooper Werner Foerster during a wild shootout after a routine traffic stop on the NJ Turnpike. She and a BLA comrade were captured, tried, convicted and sentenced to life in prison. Chesimard, with the help of other Marxist radicals of the time, escaped from […]
In the wake of the New York terror bombings this weekend, Eric Shawn and Joe compared today to the 1970s climate in which Joe’s father Frank Connor was murdered by FALN terrorists. Today’s parallels to the 1970s are striking. Then and today America had come off wars the Left made sure we did not win. We were perceived as weakened and vulnerable. Predators attack when they perceive weakness.

Orginally published September 25, 2016 in Townhall.com The Clintons released unrepentant terrorists to advance Hillary Clinton’s political aspirations.In 1999 Hillary Clinton played a crucial role in obtaining Presidential clemency for 12 members of the infamous Puerto Rican terrorist group, FALN (Armed Forces of National Liberation). Between 1974 and 1983 the FALN claimed a decade long terror war against the US for Puerto Rican “independence” but planned to transform Puerto Rico into a Cuban bases Marxist state. Nine people were seriously injured in 28 Chicago area bombings. Six were murdered in NY, including four (60 injured) in the horrific January 24, 1975 lunchtime bombing of historic Fraunces Tavern in lower Manhattan. My father, Frank Connor, only 33, was murdered at Fraunces. Our family planned to celebrate my recent 9th and brother’s 11th birthdays the night of our father’s murder. By 1981, eleven of the FALN terrorists were arrested, tried, convicted and sentenced at a Federal trial in Chicago. Sentences ranged from 50 to 70 years for bomb making, conspiracy to commit armed robbery, seditious conspiracy, and illegal possession of weapons including C4 plastic explosives and huge caches of ammunition and dynamite. At their sentencing, the terrorists stood, taunted and threatened […]
Justice Against Sponsors of Terrorism Act (JASTA): Overriding President Obama’s veto, we the people won results when this administration would not act. On FBN’s Kennedy Thursday, Judge Napolitano and Joe debated with Ambassador Bolton, congress’ override of Mr. Obama’s veto. 9/11 families are now allowed to sue Saudi Arabia for their involvement in the 9/11 attacks.

Hillary Clinton: Cannot be trusted on terrorism We the People are pissed off: Eric Shawn discusses similarities between today and terrorist attacks of the 1970s JASTA: Overriding Mr. Obama’s veto on the Justice Against Sponsors of Terrorism Act Brian Kilmeade visits the 9/11 Tribute Center and WTC Memorial 15 years after the attacks Commercial flights to the terror harboring Cuban Regime The Case Against FALN Terrorist Oscar Lopez Rivera Honoring victims of terrorism by demanding our government win the war on terrorists is more important now than ever. Here are several recent instances showing our war on terrorists has be waged for generations yet has been used for politics though many of those years. If America truly intends to win this war, we must finally identify the enemy, remove the politics and honor those murdered civilians, first responders and service members by destroying the terrorists who wage war against us, wherever they are.

With the death of Fidel Castro this week Hell became a worse place. Eric Shawn and Joe discussedCastro’s death as Joe made a plea to President elect Trump to secure the return from Cuba of fugitive terrorists including William Morales and Joanne Chesimard. Please click here or on the link below for the full interview. http://video.foxnews.com/v/5235525615001/ For more about Morales, Chesimard and Castro’s harboring of terrorists, please see full piece from Townhall.com below. http://m.townhall.com/columnists/joeconnor/2016/11/30/fidel-castro-is-dead-n2252845 Fidel Castro was a Marxist dictator who murdered, tortured and enslaved the Cuban people and who had the blood of Americans on hishands including the blood of our father. While many delusional Democrats and many in the liberal media continue to gush about the “free” healthcare and education Castro supposedly provided his countrymen, they, like the Obama administration that began normalizing relations with Cuba, have ignored the well documented executions, systemic human rights abuses and overall misery he wrought on the island and exported to American shores. I spent a week in Cuba this year and went to the razor wire border with Cuba at our Guantanamo Bay Naval Base; the wire keeping Cubans in, rather than Americans out with the Orwellian sign reading, “Republica de Cuba, Territorio […]
Why do we keep having to justify justice? We ask PEOTUS Trump to secure the return of FALN terrorist William Morales from Cuba to serve his 99 year prison term and for FALN leader Oscar Lopez Rivera to remain in prison completing his 70 year term. This week on Circa Joe Connor and Sara Carter discussed the unjust push for President Obama to offer a second clemency to Lopez Rivera.

Former President Barack Obama and his surrogates in the media and entertainment industries spent the last days and weeks of his presidency attempting to write, or rewrite, his legacy. Fortunately, much of his legacy, Obamacare / the Cuba and Iran agreements can be washed away with the stroke of President Trump’s pen. But Obama’s real legacy, what people will remember is clear: setting the stage for the election of President Donald Trump his release of enemies of our country; Islamic terrorists from Guantanamo Bay Cuba and this week, clemency to terrorist leader Oscar Lopez Rivera, whose FALN murdered Frank Connor at Fraunces Tavern. For decades we have sought justice for Joe’s father Frank and other terror victims. Joe published an Op / Ed today in the Wall Street Journal challenging Obama’s clemency grant to, and Hamilton creator Lin-Manuel Miranda’s support for, this unrepentant terrorist.

As published in the May 8, 2017 New York Post. Officials last week announced plans to honor unrepentant terrorist leader Oscar Lopez Rivera as their first ever “National Freedom Hero” at this year’s National Puerto Rican Day Parade on June 11. The words “disgrace” and “outrage” do not come close to describing the insanity, insult and pain that honoring this terrorist thug brings to our family, the families of all FALN victims and all Americans. The idea is truly sickening. New York City was the epicenter for the most horrific of the 120-plus bombings by Lopez’s Puerto Rican terrorist group, the Armed Forces for National Liberation (FALN). One of those bombings killed our 33-year-old father, Frank Connor, and three other innocent people. Why would anyone in New York salute this man — particularly in the midst of our nation’s war on terrorists? Worse, City Council Speaker Melissa Mark-Viverito chose to make this Alice-in-Wonderland announcement at One World Observatory, the very site of the most horrific terror attack in our nation’s history. It’s also where my father’s godson, Steve Schlag, was murdered, along with 3,000 other civilians and the true hero first-responders. And where a threat by Lopez’s FALN prompted an evacuation […]
An amazing group of friends and enormous social media support from Puerto Rican and non Puerto Rican Communities have proven that We the People still have power. Through our tenacity, passion, common sense understanding of right and wrong, and just plain WILL we have contributed to all major sponsors,unions and most officials, including the NYPD Police Commissioner O’Neill and NY Governor Cuomo pulling their support from the June 11, Puerto Rican Day Parade that plans to honor the convicted FALN terrorist Oscar Lopez Rivera. Lopez is to receive a “Freedom Hero” or some such award. A Freedom Hero award to a Marxist whose FALN murdered four at Fraunces Tavern, the very birthplace of freedom in our country. He deserves no such award. Lopez’s FALN murdered five innocent men in New York, Harold Sherbourne, Jim Gezork, Alex Berger, Charles Steinberg and our father Frank Connor. In addition they shattered the lives and families of the dozens of wounded they left in their wake. Thank you all who have made this possible. The contributions are too numerous to site so here are a few samples: Former Assist US Attny Deborah Devaney’s (prosecuted Lopez in Chicago) authoritative Op / Ed in NRO. The […]
Published by Eric Shawn on Foxnews.com. Please click here for the full story or below for the interview with Eric Shawn. http://video.foxnews.com/v/5482936878001/ They sought safety on the shores of Cuba from American justice. Now Joe Connor wants them back. “Get these guys back, as a starting point for any further opening up of Cuba,” Connor insists. CUBA DEAL ROLLBACK: TRUMP SAYS HE’S NIXING OBAMA’S ‘ONE-SIDED’ PACT An estimated 70 fugitives, including terrorists, murderers, bank robbers and hijackers, sought refuge in Cuba and remain protected to this day by the government. The notorious F.A.L.N. Puerto Rican terrorist group bomb maker Willie Morales, and convicted New Jersey State Trooper killer Joanne Chesimard, are among the most infamous who have enjoyed the benefits of decades of Cuban protection and generosity. Connor, whose father was killed in a New York City F.A.L.N. terrorist bombing, says President Trump needs to add the return of the fugitives to any new agreement with the President Raul Castro’s regime. Morales, whose hands were blown off when a bomb accidently exploded, escaped from jail and found haven in Cuba in 1988. He is on the F.B.I.’s Most Wanted List and charged with “Unlawful flight to avoid prosecution/escape.” OPINION: MY […]
Shattered Lives; Overcoming the Fraunces Tavern Terror by Jeff Ingber, Joe Connor Shattered Lives begins by taking the reader into the graphic horror of major terror attacks, the lives of victims and their families, the aftermath of their shattered lives and even the terrorists themselves, providing context for their deeds. On January 24, 1975, six young businessmen were enjoying lunch in lower Manhattan’s historic Fraunces Tavern when a bomb placed inside the restaurant exploded, tearing throughout the building. It had been planted by a group claiming support for Puerto Rican independence known as the FALN,” the most active domestic terrorist organization in American history. Among those businessmen were two sons of immigrants and only children – Frank Connor, with a wife and two young boys, and Alex Berger, whose wife was six months pregnant. Both were murdered, along with two other men, while dozens were injured, some horrifically. Shattered Lives, co-authored by Jeff Ingber and Joe Connor, Frank Connor’s son, chronicles the origins of the Puerto Rican independence movement, its transformation into a Cuban-led Marxist cause, the FALN’s decade-long reign of murder and destruction that also maimed four NYPD officers, the hunt for the terrorists directed by a group of dedicated FBI agents, the inexplicable […]
