Well everything is pointing to Islamic Terrorist. This is only the beginning.September 19, 2016 at 6:45 pm #50003
How many lone wolves does it take to make a pack? How many of the perps need to be proudly proclaiming the same “religion,” before a pattern is established? How many similar “incidents,” with perps of the same religious orientation and claiming allegiance to the same overseas “caliphate”, before it’s not just a string of outraged reactions to the shameful “prejudicial treatment” Americans have shown them (thank you, Hitlary Clinton), but the beginnings of a military attack?
How many more of them should we import? – and subsidize? – and excuse?

I don’t know what you all are upset about. Josh Earrnest has defined the issue for us quite clearly:
“In some ways, this is actually just a war of narratives. We want to get out our counter-narrative against ISIL. And we’re having some progress, we’re making some progress.”
“Just a war of narratives” – in other words, a verbal argument. So what’s the big stink all about?September 20, 2016 at 12:38 am #50014
So what’s the big stink all about?
It appears that some of the “words” they’re tossing around are blowing up and killing people, or at least, stabbing them. I’d like to hear what fine, defensive words Mr. not-so-Earnest would utter with a scimitar against his throat. Bet it would alter his counter-narrative.

I remember thinking, oh so long ago, that we could never have a worse administration that WillieJeff Clinton. And now watching the massive destruction of the constitutional republic, and the out-front, blatant use of Alinsky’s and Cloward and Piven’s work, all in just 7½ years (with almost another ½ year to go – shudder! - I still shake my head in disbelief, wondering if this can all be real. Of course, Bush II certainly did a great job of setting this administration up to do its “job” of widespread destruction.
What’s so very amazing – yet so easy to understand why now that I’ve had a lifetime to watch it all unfold – is that the nominal “citizens” of this land don’t generally have any clue what’s going on, or that there’s even anything wrong with the way it’s being handled. “JUST a war of narratives?!?” And nobody of consequence, particularly among the general population, is calling them on that typical piece of idiocy?
The separately posted “humor” earlier, could not have been more appropriate to see and capture a photo today, after that quote from Earnest. “Brilliance” indeed …. All I COULD do was laugh out loud when I saw it – the irony was just too much, on so many levels.September 20, 2016 at 4:10 am #50019
Importing more and more Islamics to the US seems like a pressure cooker receipe. Really Incredible Surveillance. I’m so sorry if the Islamic community is under a microscope. They deserve it after this blah blah. But it’s also bizarre. NYC is a sanctuary city state in our midst. They welcome people hostile to our freedom. One huge disruption on the Narrows bridge, nine thousand cameras tracking the perp. It was a wonderful introduction to the total surveillance state, with minimal damage. Great police work …. glad I don’t live in Gotham.September 20, 2016 at 4:56 am #50021
Great police work …. glad I don’t live in Gotham.
Yeah, and they even were nice enough to tell the NEXT bombers to make sure they wear gloves when constructing the bombs, so as not to leave identifying finger prints. Of course the points for the assist go to the news media that happily passed on the tip.
If anyone really believed that the TV show, “Person of Interest”, was fiction, they were woefully naive. “Slate” magazine has two excellent stories on line at the moment, on the same page. I highly recommend both. The first is about what DARPA/NSA/whoever has chosen to actually reveal about their capabilities in this regard. The title of the first article is a most absurd rhetorical question: “Could the Pentagon’s 1.8 Gigapixel Drone Camera Be Used for Domestic Surveillance?” (The obvious response is not whether it could, but, “For how long has it already been going on?”)
The article is basic but OK, but the link in the above article is a worthless video because they claim the original PBS/Nova program is not available for streaming. It’s quite available on YouTube in its entirety. For anyone not having seen it, it’s beyond chilling. For most here however, it will not be so chilling – we’ve already been sufficiently chilled. But here’s an outstanding 4-minute excerpt from the entire program:
Following the above article, be sure to read, “The Problem With That Cellphone Alert About the Chelsea Bombing Suspect.”
It discusses multiple significant problems with the cell-phone alert blast that went out across the NYC area today concerning the “alleged” bomber (now recovering in custody from the police-induced bullet holes). We all heard ABOUT the alert – but I didn’t hear anything in the news reports that said how useless they were until this article. No photo, no description – just this text alert (click link to view alert):
That went out to thousands of subway riders who suddenly were looking suspiciously at everyone around them that looked like they might be named “Ahmad.”
Seems to me we just witnessed a great exercise in the conditioning of around 10 million people.September 20, 2016 at 2:57 pm #50028
Meanwhile, as they micro-surveil born-and-raised US citizens, we have the likes of sweet little Dahir Adan, the Kenyan Muslim, floating around in our midst, undetected. From WCCO (CBS) in Minneapolis we get the following account. Note the family said he was employed as a security guard. He terminated his previous security guard employment in the spring, and wasn’t employed by the company they claimed he was currently working for. The family claimed he was a college student, but he dropped out in the spring. They claimed they will cooperate with the investigation – but only “within the limits of the law.” And they ask us not to rush to judgement about their sweet little boy who was only going to the mall to pick up his new iPhone at the T-Mobile store, only to be “gunned down by an off duty officer.” BLM, don’tchaknow. Kudos to the white Harvard grad, with the wonderfully contrasting red hair and black eyebrows, that wrote the informative story.
The security firm Securitas issued a statement that Adan had resigned in June of 2016 from his part-time security job with them and that he had been assigned to the St. Cloud company Electrolux Home Products.
The family says he was currently working as a security guard at Capital One in downtown St. Cloud and that he was enrolled as a student at St. Cloud State. But St. Cloud State said he had been enrolled between 2014 and the spring of 2016 and was no longer enrolled there. Late Monday, Capital One said that after a review of company records, Adan had never worked there.
Yussuf says the family can’t understand what happened between the time he left and the time he stabbed nine people and was gunned down by an off duty officer inside the Macy’s store.
. . .
And while we have heard numerous victims say Adan was shouting “God is great” in Arabic and demanding to know if shoppers were Muslim or not, the family told Yussuf he was not particularly religious and that they did not know of any ties he had to ISIS or radical groups.
. . .
“As a family, we are committed to fully cooperating, within the limits of the law, with all the relevant law enforcement agencies as they conduct their investigation.September 25, 2016 at 1:11 pm #50049
In the Washington mall shooting there was no evidence of a terror attack. The suspect was a white male. (Why didn’t they immediately assign alt.right domestic terrorism status to it??? All the signs where there – white male.)
The suspect became a Hispanic male. There was no evidence of terrorist involvement. Some said they heard him possibly saying a woman’s name as he went through the mall, indicating a possible domestic issue. (Was her name “Alu Akbar?”)
Names were not being released, but the male and female victims appeared to be random, ranging from a 16 year old girl to a senior citizen. But no evidence of terrorism. (The dead victims weren’t around to interview about any possible feelings of terror they might have experienced.)
The suspect was caught, but motive and identifying or background information were not being released at that time. And there was still no evidence of terrorist intent.
The suspect’s name was released, and enterprising “journalists” discovered Facebook and other web information about him, including that he was a joker and could be a pain at times, and that he claimed to be Russian. Still no evidence of terrorist activity.
The suspect “immigrated to the U.S. from Turkey [and] is a legal permanent resident.” He has a history of three domestic violence charges against him, with his stepfather as the victim. He was “told by an Island County District Court judge on Dec. 29 that he was not to possess a firearm.” He also has a drunken driving charge. He’s 20 years old and still driving a car and possessed a gun. But there’s still no evidence of terror.
We learn that his “stepfather urged the judge not to impose a no-contact order, saying his stepson was ‘going through a hard time.’ ”
GOOD WORK, journalists. It is comforting to know that we don’t have yet another lone wolf white, Hispanic, Russian, Turk terrorist, with court involvement that didn’t stop him from driving after a DUI prior to age 21, or possessing a firearm after not one, but three domestic violence charges and a judge’s instruction not to have a gun. We just need tougher gun laws and greater tolerance for immigrants – especially those “going through a hard time” that are not clear whether they are from Russia, Turkey, or Zombieland.
