From CNN:

He’s accused of war crimes and torture. Uber and Lyft approved him to drive.
By Scott Bronstein, Curt Devine and Drew Griffin, CNN

Updated 11:49 AM ET, Wed May 15, 2019

(CNN)Where does an alleged war criminal accused of torture and directing mass executions look for work while living in the United States? For Yusuf Abdi Ali, there was an easy answer: Uber and Lyft.

Within a couple of days of applying to be a ride-share driver, Ali said he was approved to shuttle passengers from place to place. He’s been doing it for more than 18 months, according to his Uber profile.

When CNN reporters recently caught a ride from Ali, the former Somali military commander was listed on Uber’s app as an “Uber Pro Diamond” driver with a 4.89 rating.

Asked if the application process was difficult, Ali replied that it was a breeze. …

“They just want your background check, that’s it,” said Ali, who was unaware that undercover CNN reporters were riding with him and recording the trip on video. “If you apply tonight maybe after two days it will come, you know, everything.”

Ali’s work as a ride-share driver raises new questions about the thoroughness of Uber and Lyft’s background check process and the ease with which some people with controversial pasts can get approved to drive.

Uh … doesn’t this raise questions about the thoroughness of U.S. immigration background checks and the ease with which people with controversial past (such as being Somali war criminals) can get approved to live in America?

Just asking…

… Ali has not been convicted of a crime, but a basic internet search of his name turns up numerous documents and news accounts alleging he committed various atrocities while serving as a military commander during Somalia’s civil war in the 1980s.

His past was detailed in a documentary by the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation that featured eyewitnesses in northern Somalia who described killings allegedly committed under the direction of Ali, also known as “Colonel Tukeh.”

Another witness in the same village said, “He caught my brother. He tied him to a military vehicle and dragged him behind. … He shredded him into pieces. That’s how he died.”

So, if you’ve been drinking too much and might vomit all over the back seat of your Uber, pick a different driver.

Following CNN’s inquiries, an Uber spokesperson said the company had suspended Ali’s access to the app as it reviewed the matter.

But this war criminal being deported from the U.S. would just be wrong. Just lie back and think of the Statue of Liberty.

This week, Ali is defending himself against a civil suit filed in federal court in Virginia by a man who claims he was one of Ali’s victims in 1988. Farhan Mohamoud Tani Warfaa alleged in court documents that Ali tortured and shot him and ordered bodyguards to bury his body. The guards recognized that Warfaa, a farmer, had not died and accepted a bribe from his family to release him, according to documents.

… According to public accounts, Ali moved to Canada after the Somali military regime he worked under collapsed in 1991. He was deported after news about his alleged war crimes in Somalia became public through that CBC documentary.

United States of America … proud to be accepting Canada’s Rejects since 1991!

Ali entered the United States on a visa through his Somali wife who became a US citizen. In 2006, his wife was found guilty of naturalization fraud for claiming she was a refugee from the very Somali clan that Ali is accused of torturing.

In 2016, CNN reported that Ali had been working as a security guard at Dulles International Airport near Washington, DC.

He was fired from that job shortly after the CNN story aired.

Ali is apparently the CNN Washington Bureau’s go-to guy on a slow news day. “Let’s go see where Ali is working now?” Probably in 2022 they’ll run a story that Ali is now Ilhan Omar’s campaign manager in her Senate race.

This guy is going to be on welfare until he dies in expensive Greater Metro D.C. because CNN keeps getting him fired. But to deport him would make the Statue of Liberty cry.

Somali War criminals are Who We Are.

  1. It’s not who we are.

  2. “he committed various atrocities while serving as a military commander during Somalia’s civil war in the 1980s.”

    A joke about US foreign relations is that Washington DC taxi drivers are a decade behind US foreign policy.

    During the late 1970s and early 1980s, Somalia’s then socialist government abandoned alliances with its former partner the Soviet Union due to fallout over the Ogaden War. Because the Soviet Union had close relations with both the Somali government and Ethiopia’s then new communist Dergue regime, they were forced to choose one side to commit to. The Soviet shift in support to Ethiopia motivated the Siad Barre government to seek allies elsewhere. It eventually settled on the Soviet Unions’ Cold War rival, the United States. The US had been courting the Somali government for some time on account of Somalia’s strategic position at the mouth of the Bab el Mandeb gateway to the Red Sea and the Suez Canal. Somalia’s initial friendship with the Soviet Union and later military support by the United States enabled it to build the largest army on the continent.[1][2]

Rope breaks, Bean returns and kills all. Becomes a “hanging judge”, no offense too slight for a hanging. Tab Hunter’s character is brought before Bean for the crime of murder and robbery. Tab protests…”I killed a greaser and a chink. They don’t count.” Newman replies…”In my court all are equal icluding greasers, chinks, niggers and injuns.” Visit your local grocery store for those soon hard to find “Newman’S Own Salad Dressings.” (Movie was on TMC, Turner Movie Classics.) Maybe no uproar because Bean only lynched whites.

Unless they are traveling to those countries, doing the equivalent of extensive research to ferret out the truth, they do not know who most of these immigrants are. They do know the important thing: they’ve had womb-productive sex or they haven’t. This is their ticket to stay and to get their major monthly household bills covered by government, more with each kid birthed, in addition to up to $6,431 in refundable child tax credit cash. This accrues to them as long as one parent works part time, staying under the programs’ earned-income limits in traceable income.

  41. So CNN claims it has notched a real investigative bombshell because Uber hired an African guy who is accused (never arrested or convicted) of crimes in another country. Gotcha Uber!

    The only problem is that CNN has forgotten that — according to its own woke narrative — disqualifying black applicants through criminal background checks is totally wrong, racist AF and illegal. Here’s what CNN said in a 2015 piece supporting so-called “ban the box” legislation that prohibits employers from screening applicants based on criminal records:

    Broadly, employers cannot discriminate against people with criminal backgrounds, said Michelle Natividad Rodriguez, a senior staff attorney at the National Employment Law Project. But if a former inmate feels they have been discriminated against because of their criminal history, they may have a hard time filing a lawsuit against the employer unless they can prove a racial bias, Rodriguez said.

    In 2013, the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission filed a lawsuit against BMW alleging that black workers were being disproportionately screened out of jobs at the auto maker’s Spartanburg, South Carolina, production facility due to criminal background checks.

    After hiring a new contractor to take over logistics at the facility, BMW required the contractor to perform criminal background checks on all employees who reapplied for their jobs, the EEOC’s investigation found. The screening excluded from employment anyone who had been convicted of either misdemeanor or felony crimes no matter how long ago the conviction took place. Roughly 100 workers failed — and nearly 80% of them were black, the EEOC said.

    In September, the EEOC announced a $1.6 million settlement with BMW. The luxury car maker has since voluntarily changed its criminal background check guidelines. https://money.cnn.com/2015/10/30/news/economy/former-inmates-unemployed/index.html

    As a result of just such a “ban the box” law, The DC Fair Criminal Record Screening Amendment Act of 2014, it would literally be illegal for Uber to inquire whether he was a war “criminal.”

    Sec. 3. Inquiries into certain arrests, accusations, and convictions.
    (a) An employer may not make an inquiry about or require an applicant to disclose or
    reveal:

    (1) An arrest; or
    (2) A criminal accusation made against the applicant, which:
    (A) Is not then pending against the applicant; or
    (B) Did not result in a conviction.
    http://lims.dccouncil.us/_layouts/15/uploader/download.aspx?legislationid=30954&filename=B20-0642-Enrollment.pdf

    If I were Uber, I’d encourage the war criminal to apply for some low level position at CNN. They aren’t going to do a criminal background check either and would probably just end up hiring him to improve their Somali diversity score.

    • Replies: @Ibound1
    Well at least they still allow you to ask about convictions. Of course during the last administration (really) the EEOC claimed that even asking about convictions, if not directly relevant to the job, was racial discrimination and they tried to force a truck driving company to hire, I am trying to recall if it was a rapist or someone convicted of multiple assaults. It was one or the other. After all truck drivers don't need to forcibly have sex or assault in order to shift gears. They did lose that one.

    Guys and gals,

    In Nashville the other day the police pulled over an Uber driver on interstate 65 driving two young women. He resisted arrest, had been drinking, had a criminal history, and under questioning wasnt even a uber driver. Lord knows what that cop saved those two women from. It could have been a kidnapping for all we know. Drivers name was Millian Tesfoy. Black male. His car didnt match the description of the car on the app that he should have pulled up in and he was driving these young ladies away from where they were supposed to be going………at 3 in the morning.

    I wonder if the is a scanning device or app that someone has come up with that allows some bad people to see where the next pick up locations are for Uber. Disturbing stuff.

Set to go off this December in a crowded theater near you.”

  46. We have Somalis in Toronto. They are a criminal underclass. Canada refuses to collect race based criminal data, and the last person that tried doing so was Julian Fantino back in 1989 (when I was still a young boy), in Toronto. He collected demographic characteristics for the infamous Jane and Finch neighbourhood in Toronto, which is still a hellhole, infested with…..well yeah. “No dehumanizing language” . For sure. He saw that blacks were a minuscule minority within this trashy neighbourhood, yet (surprise surprise) they commited an overwhelming number of crimes. Something along the lines of 6 percent of the neigbourhood were black, yet they committed 51 percent of drug related crime, 55 percent of purse-snatching, and 82 percent of robberies and muggings. He also had the gall to I believe publish these findings. Oh boy the blowback he received from the Toronto Star, which is still a liberal mouthpiece to this day. Everybody was on his back. We still don’t collect these race based stats, they are still considered a tabboo.

    But anyways, if you go to TPS and go to their Most Wanted list…http://www.torontopolice.on.ca/homicide/mostwanted.php

    You’ll see many Somali people. Blacks in general, but a lot of Somalis, both cold and current.

    But they are also welfare leeches and tax burdens.

    According to our National Household Survey,

    They have an employment rate of only 42%.

    They have an unemployment rate of 21%, compared to Canada’s rate which hovers between 6 percent.

    28ooo+ are eligible for the workforce. Only 15K are actually in it.

    They have an average income of $24,182.

    Their income is only about 66.3 percent Market income. 33.6 percent of it is from the government, in the forms of child benefits(which they love seeing to it they keep popping em out), old age, pension plans, and other government plans. So welfare and all of that.

    Tax frauds, welfare leeches and just generally….criminals

    So CNN claims it has notched a real investigative bombshell because Uber hired an African guy who is accused (never arrested or convicted) of crimes in another country. Gotcha Uber!

    The only problem is that CNN has forgotten that -- according to its own woke narrative -- disqualifying black applicants through criminal background checks is totally wrong, racist AF and illegal. Here's what CNN said in a 2015 piece supporting so-called "ban the box" legislation that prohibits employers from screening applicants based on criminal records:

    Broadly, employers cannot discriminate against people with criminal backgrounds, said Michelle Natividad Rodriguez, a senior staff attorney at the National Employment Law Project. But if a former inmate feels they have been discriminated against because of their criminal history, they may have a hard time filing a lawsuit against the employer unless they can prove a racial bias, Rodriguez said.

    In 2013, the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission filed a lawsuit against BMW alleging that black workers were being disproportionately screened out of jobs at the auto maker's Spartanburg, South Carolina, production facility due to criminal background checks.

    After hiring a new contractor to take over logistics at the facility, BMW required the contractor to perform criminal background checks on all employees who reapplied for their jobs, the EEOC's investigation found. The screening excluded from employment anyone who had been convicted of either misdemeanor or felony crimes no matter how long ago the conviction took place. Roughly 100 workers failed -- and nearly 80% of them were black, the EEOC said.

    In September, the EEOC announced a $1.6 million settlement with BMW. The luxury car maker has since voluntarily changed its criminal background check guidelines. https://money.cnn.com/2015/10/30/news/economy/former-inmates-unemployed/index.html
     
    As a result of just such a "ban the box" law, The DC Fair Criminal Record Screening Amendment Act of 2014, it would literally be illegal for Uber to inquire whether he was a war "criminal."

    Sec. 3. Inquiries into certain arrests, accusations, and convictions.
    (a) An employer may not make an inquiry about or require an applicant to disclose or
    reveal:

    (1) An arrest; or
    (2) A criminal accusation made against the applicant, which:
    (A) Is not then pending against the applicant; or
    (B) Did not result in a conviction.

    If I were Uber, I'd encourage the war criminal to apply for some low level position at CNN. They aren't going to do a criminal background check either and would probably just end up hiring him to improve their Somali diversity score.

    Well at least they still allow you to ask about convictions. Of course during the last administration (really) the EEOC claimed that even asking about convictions, if not directly relevant to the job, was racial discrimination and they tried to force a truck driving company to hire, I am trying to recall if it was a rapist or someone convicted of multiple assaults. It was one or the other. After all truck drivers don’t need to forcibly have sex or assault in order to shift gears. They did lose that one.

    Interstate truck driver is the perfect job if you want to be a serial murderer or rapist. Either that, or "drifter." The two categories (not mutually exclusive), seem to be highly over-represented.

  50. Driving a taxicab is considered a pretty good, even prestigious, job among brown tropical types from the Third world. Not bad work if you can get it.

  51. I guess it’s xenophobic to ask that our immigrants not be war criminals.

  53. Slightly OT, but I used to do low-level work in in the HR department of a large nonprofit institution. I personally had no say over hiring, but did see a lot of employee tax and other paperwork. Almost our entire janitorial staff was made up of fresh-off-the-boat, Horn of Africans, mainly Somalis. On their tax forms, nearly all of them listed January 1st as a birthday, and all claimed zero. Most seemed to have government health care, so usually wouldn’t sign up for our employee package. You could always tell when Ramadan was coming to a close, as they all took time off, so restrooms were all filthy. The females who spoke a little English were pleasant enough, though some males were hired for higher-level positions (not janitorial), and certainly made life interesting for their female bosses. It was also a hyper pro-transgender workplace, which could also make things interesting.

  54. During Trump’s popular ban on travel from Muslim countries, including Somalia, Uber pitched in to help: not to enforce, but to defy and undermine it. From IBT-UK:
    “The $3m legal defence fund will be created to assist drivers with immigration and translation services, Kalanick said. Additionally, the company will provide 24/7 legal support with lawyers and immigration experts on call to help drivers trying to return to the US and compensate drivers for lost earnings, he said.”
    Hello Uber support? It’s me, Yusuf. I’m having trouble getting back from Mogadishu with my wood chipper. OK, thanks.

  57. Kyle says:

    He has a 4.89 rating out of five. This is something that is a very difficult to obtain for low IQ professional ride share drivers. It’s a breeze to obtain for high IQ white girls who drive occasionally for extra income and only every get 5 star reviews because their passengers don’t want to offend them. So based on Uber’s own metric he’s doing a great job. A five star rating is difficult to achieve, he must have a fairly high IQ. Why is Uber suspending his access to the app? Surely the statute of limitations must have expired for war crimes. Taking away the mans income won’t help anyone. As Steve notices,

    “This guy is going to be on welfare until he dies in expensive Greater Metro D.C. because CNN keeps getting him fired.”

  58. I think a friend of mine really explained it well.

    You don’t get it. It’s ok for people with controversial pasts to accept welfare checks paid for by your taxes, and to have them sitting next to your child in a public school. But Uber drivers take progressives from cafe to protest, then back to NYU. Not OK!
