Dan Slott exploits tragedy in San Bernardino for more gun control propaganda

Predictably, Slott's back to his own ultra-leftist rantings on gun control, following the horrible jihad attack in San Bernardino. Here's some of his own tweets on the subject:


It's not the time at all to talk about gun control. Slott's opportunism is shameful. What we should be talking about, if anything, is how to stop violent ideologies from being indoctrinated into people who end up becoming savages as a result. Slott's ranting about gun control is disrespectful to many victims of any gun violence, no matter what the topics involved. He also seems pretty disinterested in whether neglect by authorities had any responsibility for the terrible incident.

And yet Slott had no issue writing Punisher stories at one time. Did he also go to see the movie from the past decade?

Yeah, and one of those sticks is Slott. He's just a stick in the mud who can't keep his mouth shut. If he's so worried about gun control, how come he isn't worried about border/passport control that failed to "vet" a proper background check for one of the jihadists in California?

Using a magazine that dedicated one of their cover stories to the Boston marathon bombers to make his points? I think that's very low. Oh, and look who responded to a rather inappropriate post of his:

Look who's talking! The same guy who made people mad when he retweeted a disgusting joke involving Bill Cosby. This is not the time to be making jokes.

I see French citizens looking at Slott and shaking their heads in disbelief. He seems to have forgotten all about last month's tragedy in Paris, committed by ISIS infiltrators. I also see Israelis here too looking at a fraud like Slott and shaking their heads in disbelief. He clearly ignored jihadist attacks in Israel like this one in the Har Nof neighborhood last year. It makes no difference whether the attacks by Islamofascists were committed using knives or guns, it's abominable. Slott goes on to attack the NRA:

I wonder to whom Slott makes donations? Can't be anyone good. He next goes on to praise, most ironically, Mike Baron and Steve Rude's Nexus!

What, he's a fan of a tale that was basically right-wing and anti-communist, starring a guy who could fire his own form of energy beams, provided by an alien race called the Merk? And whose writer has been mostly blacklisted by the Big Two for 15 years now? Gee, he sure doesn't know what he's saying or throwing his weight behind, does he? And he said this in response to somebody's tweet declaring his take on Silver Surfer a spiritual heir to Nexus. Which, depending on how he writes it, would have to be a huge irony, wouldn't it? He then goes back to the gun control issue with the following:

Or were they? Using a cesspit like the NYT doesn't spell accuracy. As Matt Vespa notes:
California has long banned certain long guns that the left ridiculously calls “assault rifles” since 1989. It also has a universal background check law. Oregon also passed legislation mandating universal background checks for all firearms sales; it did nothing to stop Christopher Harper-Mercer from committing a mass shooting at Umpqua Community College in Roseburg back in October.

Moreover, yes, Gallup did report that Americans want more gun control, but if the editorial board read the whole poll–they would have found that 56 percent felt concealed firearms would make the country safer. Additionally, the Washington Post’s July analysis found that 57 percent feel that guns help prevent crime. As with anything with polls, wording matters. In the wake of Newtown, 58 percent supported a ban on semiautomatic weapons. Yes, Gallup noted that support for a handgun ban is near record lows. The point: a handgun is a semiautomatic weapon. It merely means self-reloading, which adds to the growing evidence that the media and the progressive left know little about the nomenclature of firearms, let alone the laws that apply to them.
And you can be sure Slott comprehends even less. The Washington Post, quite a liberal bastion themselves, says that the NYT's gone too far this time, and is actually hurting the whole cause with their one-sided reporting. Come to think of it, so is Slott. He might want to consider that here in Israel, guns have managed to deter some terrorist attacks, and Jerusalem's mayor has asked citizens to arm themselves for self-defense. But I get the feeling Israel's patriots mean nothing to Slott any more than America's. He's probably not even grateful to Hanna Bohman, the Canadian model who's now part of an army unit fighting ISIS overseas. And if not, then he has no business writing superhero comics.

Judicial Watch:

Middle Eastern Men Arrested Near Mexican Border with Steel Cylinders

Five young Middle Eastern men were apprehended by the U.S. Border Patrol this week in an Arizona town situated about 30 miles from the Mexican border, law enforcement and other sources told Judicial Watch.
Border Patrol agents spotted the men crossing a ranch property in the vicinity of Amado, which is located about 35 miles south of Tucson and has a population of 275. Two of the Middle Eastern men were carrying stainless steel cylinders in backpacks, JW’s sources say, alarming Border Patrol officials enough to call the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) for backup. A multitude of federal agents descended on the property and the two men carrying the cylinders were believed to be taken into custody by the FBI.
Only three of the men’s names were entered in the Border Patrol’s E3 reporting system, which is used by the agency to track apprehensions, detention hearings and removals of illegal immigrants. E3 also collects and transmits biographic and biometric data including fingerprints for identification and verification of individuals encountered at the border. The other two men were listed as “unknown subjects,” which is unheard of, according to a JW federal law enforcement source. “In all my years I’ve never seen that before,” a veteran federal law enforcement agent told JW.
The disturbing incident comes just days after six men—one from Afghanistan, five from Pakistan—were arrested in nearby Patagonia, a quaint ranch town that sits 20 miles north of the Mexican border city of Nogales. Federal authorities have confirmed the November 17 arrests and a local news outlet published a story that includes an official statement from the Border Patrol. Special Agent Kurt Remus in the Federal Bureau of Investigation’s  (FBI) Phoenix headquarters told JW that the agency’s Joint Terrorism Task Forces vetted and interviewed the six men and determined that there were “no obvious signs of terrorism” so they were returned to Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) custody.
However, Special Agent Remus told JW that there is no record of this week’s incident in Amado and that he knew nothing about it. JW also put in a call to DHS headquarters, but received no response. In the last year JW has broken a number of stories involving serious terrorist threats on the southern border that were disputed on the record by various Obama administration officials. Among these is an April report—confirmed by high-level Mexican authorities—about ISIS operating camps near the U.S. border in areas known as Anapra and Puerto Palomas west of Ciudad Juárez in the Mexican state of Chihuahua.
Last fall JW was the first to report on an Islamic State of Iraq and Greater Syria (ISIS) plot orchestrated from Ciudad Juárez to attack the U.S. with car bombs or other vehicle borne improvised explosive devices (VBIED). As a result of JW’s reporting Ft. Bliss, the U.S. Army base in El Paso, increased security. The threat was imminent enough to place agents across a number of Homeland Security, Justice and Defense agencies on alert. A few weeks later JW reported that four ISIS terrorists were arrested by federal authorities and the Texas Department of Public Safety in McAllen and Pharr.

Islamic State says California killers of 14 were their followers

By Yasmeen Abutaleb and Rory Carroll
SAN BERNARDINO, Calif. (Reuters) - Islamic State said on Saturday that a married couple who killed 14 people in California in an attack the FBI is investigating as an "act of terrorism" were followers of the militant group based in Syria and Iraq.
The group's declaration, in an online radio broadcast, came three days after U.S.-born Syed Rizwan Farook, 28, and his wife Tashfeen Malik, 29, a native of Pakistan, carried out the attack on a holiday party for civil servants in San Bernardino, about 60 miles (100 km) east of Los Angeles.
The two died hours later in a shootout with police.
U.S. government sources have said Malik and her husband may have been inspired by Islamic State, but there was no evidence the attack was directed by the militant group or that the organization even knew who they were. The party the couple attacked was for workers in the same local government agency that employed Farook.
If Wednesday's mass shooting proves to have been the work of people inspired by Islamist militants, as investigators now suspect, it would mark the deadliest such attack in the United States since Sept. 11, 2001.
Two ethnic Chechen brothers inspired by al Qaeda killed three people and injured 264 in a bombing attack on the Boston Marathon in April 2013.
"Two followers of Islamic State attacked several days ago a center in San Bernadino in California," the group's daily online radio broadcast al-Bayan said on Saturday.
An English-language version of the broadcast was later released calling the attackers "soldiers" of Islamic State, rather than "followers" as in the original Arabic version. It was unclear if the English version was claiming them as members, or why there was an inconsistency.
The broadcast came a day after Facebook confirmed that comments praising Islamic State were posted around the time of the mass shooting to an account on the social media website established by Malik under an alias.
However, it was uncertain whether the comments were posted by Malik herself or someone with access to her page.

PLEDGE OF ALLEGIANCE
"There was a pledge of allegiance," David Bowdich, assistant director of the Federal Bureau of Investigation's Los Angeles office, told a news conference about a reported loyalty pledge posted on Facebook by Malik on the day of the attack.
A Facebook Inc spokesman said the profile in question was removed by the company on Thursday for violating its community standards barring promotion or praise for "acts of terror." He declined to elaborate on the material.
CNN and other news media outlets reported the Facebook posts on Malik's page included a pledge of allegiance to Islamic State leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi.
"Ye are now investigating these horrific acts as an act of terrorism," Bowdich told reporters.
He said the FBI hoped examination of data retrieved from two smashed cellphones and other electronic devices seized in the investigation would lead to a motive for the attack.
The couple had two assault-style rifles, two semi-automatic handguns, 6,100 rounds of ammunition and 12 pipe bombs in their home or with them when they were killed, officials said. Bowdich said they may have been planning an additional attack.
The attack prompted the New York Times to run its first front-page editorial since 1920, saying it was "a moral outrage and a national disgrace" that the sort of firearms used in the attack were so readily available.
"These are weapons of war, barely modified and deliberately marketed as tools of macho vigilantism and even insurrection," the newspaper said.
Speaking to reporters in Washington on Friday, FBI Director James Comey said the investigation pointed to "radicalization of the killers and of potential inspiration by foreign terrorist organizations."
But no evidence has been uncovered yet suggesting the killers were "part of an organized larger group, or form part of a cell," Comey said.
Citing an unnamed federal law enforcement official, the Los Angeles Times reported late on Friday that Farook had "some kind" of contact with people from the Nusra Front and the radical Shabab group in Somalia. But the nature of that contact and with whom was unclear, the Times said.

OBAMA TOUTS NATIONAL RESILIENCE
President Barack Obama vowed on Saturday in his weekly radio address that federal investigators would find out what motivated the married couple to attack.
"We are strong. And we are resilient. And we will not be terrorized," Obama said.
Farook family attorneys, holding a news conference in Los Angeles on Friday, denied there was any evidence that either the husband or wife harbored extremist views.
She spoke broken English and her primary language was Urdu, he said, adding, "She was very conservative." They said Farook, too, largely kept to himself, had few friends and said co-workers sometimes made fun of his beard.
Investigators are looking into a report that Farook had an argument with a co-worker who denounced the "inherent dangers of Islam" prior to the shooting, a U.S. government source said.
Pakistani intelligence officials have contacted Malik's family in her homeland as part of the investigation, a family member said.

AG of the USA on the Preamble to the Constitution she is sworn to protect



image
During her remarks to the Muslim Advocates dinner, Lynch did not address the mass shooting at an office party in San Bernardino, Calif.

With terrorist attacks in Paris and a shooting spree in California prompting alarm on the part of many Americans, Attorney General Loretta Lynch said Thursday that her “greatest fear” is that expressions of anti-Muslim sentiment will lead to attacks on Muslims in the U.S.

“The fear that you have just mentioned is in fact my greatest fear as a prosecutor, as someone who is sworn to the protection of all of the American people, which is that the rhetoric will be accompanied by acts of violence,” Lynch told a dinner hosted by a Muslim civil rights organization. “My message to not just the Muslim community but to the entire American community is: we cannot give in to the fear that these backlashes are really based on.”

ANY QUESTIONS?

PROVIDE FOR THE COMMON DEFENSE

NYT Front Page Editorial ULTIMATE DOUBLE DOWN - "No right is unlimited and immune from reasonable regulation."

NY Times Editorial Today
Does the subject even matter after this?
Perhaps we should restrict and regulate freedom of speech from suggesting impingement on the Bill of Rights?
Or eliminate or regulate birthright citizenship.
This is the kind of logic we are seeing from the NYT
Of course they want to deal with the 2nd Amendment of a Bill of Rights so important Jefferson told Madison the Constitution was unacceptable without the 1st 10 Amendments he worked with Madison on, being ratified WITH IT.
Why?
Because those rights are COMPULSORY to protect individuals and small minorities from BOTH the govt and the majority.
And the NYT wants to regulate the protection of individuals and minorities, and for that regulation to come from the EXACT INSTITUTION those Amendments exist to protect each one of us from.
Let’s start with regulation of the bona fides of editorial boards of newspapers by whatever govt is elected by the people that year?


How does that one grab you. you morons?

There are Two Syed Farooks In San Bernadino and They are Brothers?


 San Bernardino Jihadi’s Family: FACEBOOK PHOTOS and TROUBLING FACTS
There are two Syed Farooks in the greater San Bernardino area. ...Syed Raheel Farook employed as a business taxes representative for the California State Board of Equalization and Syed Rizwan Farook, an environmental health specialist at the San Bernardino County Health Department, whom the police named Wednesday night as the shooting suspect.

Adding to the confusion is that the two Syed R. Farooks are apparently brothers.


Today, in the NYDailyNews, there are two articles placed side by side on their main page:

NYDN: Brother-in-law of San Bernardino shooter to adopt orphaned neice
Farhan Khan, the brother-in-law of San Bernardino gunman Syed Rizwan Farook, said he is “very upset and angry” with his murderous relatives — especially since they abandoned their new daughter.

Brother of San Bernardino shooter is a highly decorated Navy veteran who was honored for good conduct
The brother of the San Bernardino shooter is a decorated Navy veteran who was given a good conduct award, military records show.

Syed Raheel Farookb joined the Navy in August 2003 and left the military four years later with accolades, a Navy spokesman told the Daily News Thursday.

It appears like an attempt to manipulate with the headlines next to each other, implying oh, this terrorist family ain't so bad after all.

Are These The Tankers Bilal Erdogan Uses To Transport ISIS Oil?



Here’s what Syrian Information Minister Omran al-Zoub said on Friday:
“All of the oil was delivered to a company that belongs to the son of Recep [Tayyip] Erdogan. This is why Turkey became anxious when Russia began delivering airstrikes against the IS infrastructure and destroyed more than 500 trucks with oil already. This really got on Erdogan and his company’s nerves. They’re importing not only oil, but wheat and historic artefacts as well.”
While we’ve yet to come across conclusive evidence of Bilal’s connection to ISIS, we would note that the Turkish port of Ceyhan is state-run and given Turkey’s extensive experience in smuggling KRG crude, it seems entirely fair to suggest that sneaking in 40,000 or so barrels of ISIS oil each day wouldn’t be that difficult a task. Indeed, given that Kurdish oil is, like ISIS crude, technically undocumented, Turkey will always have plausible deniability on its side (unless of course the oil is being moved into the country straight from Syria which is what Putin seems to be suggesting).

Loretta Lynch defends Muslims and announces investigation in arrest of Texas 'clock kid'


From the LA Times:
Lynch was speaking during an “armchair conversation” in a Virginia suburb of Washington at a dinner being held by the Muslim Advocates, a national legal advocacy group for the rights of Muslims. 
Although she did not speak directly of the San Bernardino shootings at the event, Lynch said there had been a “very disturbing rise in anti-Muslim rhetoric” since the Paris shootings three weeks ago. 
“When we are ruled by fear, we are not making ourselves safe,” Lynch said. She specifically criticized proposals in Congress to block Syrian refugees from the U.S. 
“This is not the way,” she said, and people were “simply rushing to judgment.” 
“My message to the Muslim community is we stand with you in this,” Lynch said to Farhana Khera, the executive director of Muslim Advocates.
GO READ THE WHOLE THING. 

So, let me see if I get this right:

We just came off the worst Jihadi attack on our homeland since 9/11. Maybe the Boston Bombing was worse, but in terms of sheer numbers of dead people, this was the worst. Wasn't it?

And one of the reasons this WELL-PLANNED attack actually got to the final stage, to the violent stage, is because PEOPLE WHO SAW SOMETHING DID NOT SAY SOMETHING, for fear of "profiling" Middle Eastern men.

((( Neighbors of husband and wife San Bernardino shooters ‘noticed them acting suspiciously but did NOT report them for fear of racial profiling’ )))

In other words, this constant excuse-making for Muslims, and coddling of Muslims, by the Obama Administration, is exactly what allowed these terror attacks to happen.

And in Lynch's first public address to the Muslim community after these Crimes Against Humanity by Jihadist members of the Muslim community, she doesn't even address the subject.

Instead, she talks about how American people are mean to the poor, poor Muslims.

Fuck Loretta Lynch and the Obama Administration.

It looks like they stand with the Muslims.

And Here It Is, The Inevitable - Muslims Are Afraid of a Backlash of Islamophobia in The Wake of the Latest Islam-Inspired Atrocities and Crimes Against Humanity - Article

Crimes against humanity are certain acts which are committed as part of a widespread or systematic attack directed against any civilian population or an identifiable part of a population.

From Reuters:
DEARBORN, Mich. (Reuters) - Muslim Americans fear their religion will be demonized and Islamophobia will spread after a young Muslim couple was accused of carrying out one of the bloodiest mass killings in the United States. 
Across the country, Muslim Americans responded with shock and outrage after a shooting in which authorities said Syed Rizwan Farook, 28, and Tashfeen Malik, 27, stormed a holiday party attended by San Bernardino County employees in California on Wednesday, killing 14 people and wounding 21.  
"I was at the gym yesterday while the shooting was taking place and all the TVs were showing that footage and all I could keep thinking to myself is 'God, I hope they don't have any Eastern descent, not just Middle Eastern, anything we'd associate with a Muslim'," said Adam Hashem, 32, in Dearborn, a Detroit suburb with one of the country’s largest Muslim populations. 
"We're all worried. We're all concerned,” he said. "In every culture and in every religion there are bad apples that will spoil the rest of the apples. That has happened toward us," said Dawod Dawod, a 25-year-old Muslim American, who manages the store that his family has owned for a decade. 
Between taking orders over the phone, Dawod said he was concerned that politicians will use the mass shooting as a way to further demonize Muslims. He noted Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump's endorsement of the idea of creating a Muslim database. 
"It's scary." he said. "Ninety-nine percent of Muslims are hardworking, good people." Muslim community groups condemned the massacre and urged the public not to blame Islam or Muslims. 
"The Muslim community stands shoulder to shoulder with our fellow Americans in repudiating any twisted mindset that would claim to justify such sickening acts of violence," said Hussam Ayloush, an executive director at the Council on American-Islamic Relations.
The poor, poor Muslims.

Turkey refuses US request to close Syrian border


Prime Minister Ahmet Davuto?lu has underlined the difficulties and potential complications of a move by Turkey to close the border with Syria, as a report revealed Ankara’s anger over U.S. leadership’s insistence on using Turkish ground forces on the border to accomplish this goal.
“Keeping the entire border with Syria [closed] may come on the agenda as a project but then what will you do about transiting refugees? We have a moral responsibility along this 911-kilometer-long border and it is accepting refugees. We have a strategic responsibility and it is ensuring security of the border. Not having terrorists transition and any negative developments on the Turkey-Syria border are in Turkey’s interest. We have paid the highest price for Daesh’s terrorist activities,” Davuto?lu said on Dec. 3 in response to a question on border security, using the Arabic acronym Daesh to refer to the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL).
“There is nothing more difficult than protecting a border on the other side of which there is no political authority. There is no functioning state system or counterpart administration on the other side. At the moment, around 98 kilometers of our border seem under Daesh control. In the past months we had given orders to build physical barriers on the entire border and these physical barriers are being built. Control is maintained through signal systems but beyond that we are conducting all kinds of works to eradicate Daesh from these 98 kilometers,” Davuto?lu said at a press conference ahead of his departure for an official visit to Baku.
“The characteristic of Russia’s operations [in Syria], which are not against Daesh, is one of the factors which obstructs the eradication of Daesh from our borders,” he added.

CNN Says Syed Farook “Radicalized Online” After Wooing Devout Wife While Making Hajj To Saudi Arabia, In Touch With International Terrorists


From the Daily Mail:
San Bernardino gunman Syed Farook met his Pakistani wife-turned-accomplice Tashfeen Malik while on the hajj in Saudi Arabia and appeared to be radicalized, law enforcement officials revealed this afternoon. 
Investigators told CNN that Farook, a native US citizen of South Asian descent, was in touch by phone and via social media with more than one international terrorism subject. 
On Wednesday morning, Farook, 28, and Malik, 27, dropped off their six-month-old baby with Farook’s mother, saying they were going to a doctor’s appointment. 
By noon, according to police, the couple had donned assault clothing, armed themselves with rifles and stormed a holiday party attended by San Bernardino County employees, killing 14 people and wounding 17 others. 
According to some reports, the duo had GoPro cameras strapped to their body armor during the shooting. 
Before sunset, after a massive manhunt and a violent shootout with police on a residential street, they were both dead, leaving a grieving community with few clues to puzzle out the motive for the carnage.
AND THEN THERE'S THIS:

Obama Confuses Christmas with Arbor Day

GOOD GRIEF!
President Obama took a break from saving the icebergs to weigh in on what he believes to be the true meaning of Christmas – loving tiny trees. The president, along with the first lady, delivered their homage to foliage during an appearance on a television program recognizing the 50th anniversary of “A Charlie Brown Christmas.”

“For half a century, people of all ages have gathered around the tv to watch  Charlie Brown, Lucy, Linus and the rest of the gang teach us the true meaning of Christmas,” Mrs. Obama said during a taping of ABC’s “It’s Your 50th Christmas, Charlie Brown.”

That was all well and good – until President Obama chimed in.

They teach us that tiny trees just need a little love, and that on this holiday we celebrate peace on Earth and goodwill toward all,” he said.

Wait. What?

Does the president really believe that “A Charlie Brown Christmas” was all about tiny trees pining for love?

“Because as Linus knows, that’s what Christmas is all about,” Mrs. Obama declared.
Good Grief, America.

So let’s take a moment and reflect with Linus Van Pelt on the Reason for the Season.

Lights, please.

"And there were in the same country shepherds abiding in the field, keeping watch over their flock by night. And lo, the angel of the Lord came upon them, and the glory of the Lord shone round about them: and they were sore afraid. And the angel said unto them, 'Fear not: for behold, I bring unto you good tidings of great joy, which shall be to all people. For unto you is born this day in the City of David a Savior, which is Christ the Lord. And this shall be a sign unto you; Ye shall find the babe wrapped in swaddling clothes, lying in a manger.' And suddenly there was with the angel a multitude of the heavenly host, praising God, and saying, 'Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace, good will toward men.'"

And that, Mr. President, is what Christmas is all about – celebrating the birth of Jesus – not a tree.

We already have a holiday for that – it’s called Arbor Day.

Reuters: Couple's motive in California rampage a mystery for police, family

It's a Mystery

Reuters:
San Bernardino Police Chief Jarrod Burguan said the motive remained unclear in the most recent U.S. mass shooting. He and David Bowdich, an assistant regional FBI director, both said it had not been determined if terrorism was a motive. 
Farook was U.S. born while Malik's nationality was yet to be determined. A spokesman for the Muslim advocacy group Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) said both were Muslims. 
Farook's family and co-workers also struggled to make sense of the shooting, the deadliest in the United States in three years. His brother-in-law said he had "absolutely no idea" why Farook would stage a massacre.

Russia: ‘Allah decided to punish’ Turkey’s leaders by making them lose their minds – Putin


Russian President Vladimir Putin commented on Russia’s relations with Turkey in the wake of Turkey’s downing of a Russian Air Force jet, during his state of the nation address in Moscow on Thursday. SOT, Russian President Vladimir Putin (in Russian): 
“We know, for example, who in Turkey is stuffing their pockets and allowing terrorists to earn money from the sale of stolen Syrian oil. It is with this money specifically that the bandits are hiring mercenaries, purchasing arms, organizing inhuman acts of terror aimed against our citizens, against the citizens of France, Lebanon, Mali, and other countries. 
We remember that, specifically in Turkey, militants were hiding out and received moral and material support – militants who fought in the North Caucasus in the 1990s and 2000s, and we continue to notice them operating in that area.” SOT, Russian President Vladimir Putin (in Russian): 
“We have many old and trustworthy friends in Turkey. I want to emphasize that we are not equating them with that part of the current ruling establishment, which carries the primary responsibility for the deaths of our servicemen in Syria. 
We will not forget this aid to terrorism. We have always and will always view betrayal as the worst and most embarrassing deed. Let those in Turkey who shot our pilots in the back know this; those who hypocritically attempt to justify themselves and their actions as well as to cover the tracks of terrorism. 
Respected colleagues, I do not understand at all why they did this. Any questions, any problems, and any contradictions, which we did not even see – we could have resolved them in a completely different way. 
On top of this, we were ready to work together with Turkey in all areas which Turkey considers to be most sensitive, and were ready to go so far, even further than their allies were willing to go. Only Allah knows why they did this and it looks like Allah decided to punish the ruling establishment by taking away their reason and judgment.”

San Bernadino Jihadist and His Wife Had IED Factory in Their Home

Relatives Are Telling Authorities 
It Was a Clock-Making Factory

From Inquisitor:
San Bernardino shooters Syed Farook and Tashfeen Malik have been married for about two years, according to relatives. Farook recently returned from a trip to the Middle East and reportedly spent about one month in Saudi Arabia. 
The Redlands home shared by Malik and Syed Rezwan Farook has been deemed an “IED factory” or “IED facility” by some law enforcement sources. Syed Farook, 28, has been described as a devout Muslim who began growing a beard over the course of the last year. 
The couple had a 6-month-old daughter, WYFF 4 News reports. Before going to the Christmas party at the Inland Regional Center, a gun-free zone, Farook and Malik took their baby girl to the home of the county employee’s mother. 
If emerging news reports are accurate, Syed and Tashfeen lied to his mother and said that they had to go to a doctor’s appointment that day and needed her to babysit. 
The grandmother reportedly became concerned after seeing news reports about the San Bernardino shooting on television and was unable to reach Farook.

Top Cow's Matt Hawkins thinks "Islamophobia" is a problem but not the Koran?

After reading these preview pages from a new series called The Tithe, written by Top Cow's leading editor/publisher Matt Hawkins, I can only conclude he's one of the biggest modern embarrassments in comicdom. The title of this story is "Islamophobia", no less. As you'll notice, one of the opening narrative captions says, "Sunni and Shia are to Islam what Catholic and Protestant are to Christianity; doctrinal differences often debated with bloodshed." Which not only runs the gamut of moral equivalence, they make it sound like all the different denominations of Christianity are no better than Muslims.

The captions also say, "Al Qaeda, the Taliban and ISIS are Sunni", and "The 9-11 hijackers were all Sunni too." Is Hawkins and company saying that there's a difference between two or more sects? Then all he's saying is that he's never bothered to read the Koran, because all interpretations derive from the exact same source. And Bill Roggio at the Long War Journal reported 5 years ago that Iran's been backing 3 Shia terrorist gangs. The Clarion Project has a list of as many as 40 Shia militias Iran's supporting. So if Hawkins is attempting to absolve the Shia sect of any guilt, he's only resorted to apologia.

There's more here about the next issue, and the summary says:
They’ve uncovered the truth about the terrorist attacks, but are told not to reveal it. CIA vs. FBI in the highest stakes of all.
I'm sure we won't want to know what that is exactly.

When Top Cow was founded as an Image affiliate in the early 1990s, their primary goal was fantasy entertainment. Now, they're going out of their way to confuse fantasy with reality. They should've stuck with the kind of science-fantasy products they were known for years before (Cyberforce, Witchblade, Darkness, etc). Now, left-wing politics seems to be all they can think about doing.

Report: Hillary May Have Been The Architect of the BENGHAZI YOUTUBE VIDEO LIE


Report: Hillary May Have Been The Architect of the BENGHAZI YOUTUBE VIDEO LIE
Hillary Clinton certainly used the Benghazi YouTube video lie but according to her emails, she may have been the person who put the deception together in the first place.
Investor’s Business Daily report
On Sept. 16, 2012, U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations Susan Rice went on five Sunday TV news shows to explain why a few days earlier attacks on U.S. State Department facilities in Benghazi, Libya, killed four Americans, including our ambassador. It was all just a demonstration provoked by an Internet video that got out of hand, Rice said. It was a cover-up, of course. 
Rice was pushing in a re-election year a fiction that the administration believed would do the least amount of damage to President Obama's campaign. 
The administration couldn't allow itself to admit that things were going poorly in the Middle East after it had been saying progress was being made. Clinton herself went with the story even though she knew it wasn't true. 
But was she merely a cog in the conspiracy to cover up the truth, or one of its planners? An email from a batch released Monday strongly suggests she was an architect. Her schedule, the Washington Examiner has reported, shows that Clinton met with Rice in Clinton's office from 9:30 a.m. to 10 a.m. on Sept. 14, 2012 — two days before Rice misled the American people. 
The emailed schedule shows only that a meeting with Rice was planned. No subject was referenced. But a previously released Sept. 14, 2012, email that White House aide Ben Rhodes sent to several high-ranking administration staffers had the subject line: "RE: PREP Call with Susan: Saturday at 4:00 p.m. ET." 
At that prep session, Rice was told "to underscore that these protests are rooted in an Internet video, and not a broader failure of policy." Was this narrative concocted that morning when Clinton and Rice met? 
And did Clinton participate in the prep session? Her schedule indicates that she was back in her office by 3:30 p.m. She could have orchestrated the session in a videoconference after she returned from Andrews Air Force Base, where she greeted the remains of the Benghazi victims and told their families the same lie that Rice told the nation.

San Bernardino Jihadists Were Wearing GoPro Cameras During Massacre

Syed Farook - Moderate Muslim/Jihadist

Hmm:
San Bernardino police announced tonight that the Islamic killers who slaughtered 14 people at a community social services building were wearing GoPro cameras. 
The male and female were wearing protective vests and carrying several firearms when they were gunned down by police after the massacre. 
The couple had a six month old child. The San Bernardino shooting suspect was identified tonight as Syed Farook – a father, husband and devoutly religious Muslim. syed farook 
Local officials reported the name of the female suspect in San Bernardino shooting as – Tashfeen Malik. 
They were wearing GoPro cameras when they were killed. 
The couple were at home when officers arrived and then took off and were followed by police when they were shot dead. 
It’s not clear at this time if they had time to download their wicked deeds on a computer or online before they were killed. 
The couple must have spent many hours planning the terrorist attack. 
One has to wonder if they broadcast the event live via wireless internet.

Office Recently Threw Baby Shower For Syed Farooq and His Wife, They Repaid Kindness With Jihad

Islam: No Light, But Rather Darkness Visible

From the LA Times:
 “....the office recently threw a baby shower for Farook and that he had taken paternity leave.”....
AND THEN THERE'S THIS (from the same source):
Farook traveled to Saudi Arabia, was married and seemed to be living 'American dream,' co-workers say 
Shooting suspect Syed Farook, a health inspector with San Bernardino County’s public health department, joined dozens of his colleagues at a party Wednesday morning at the Inland Regional Center. 
He disappeared shortly before the mass shooting erupted. Farook, 28, who had worked for the county for five years, "did leave the party early under circumstances described as 'angry,'" 
San Bernardino police Chief Jarrod Burguan said at a news conference late Wednesday night. Burguan said law enforcement officials are "reasonably confident" that Farook and 27-year-old Tashfeen Malik, who was his wife or fiancee, were the two suspects in the mass shooting that occurred during the party. 
Family members told the Los Angeles Times that the couple had been married for two years. 
Co-workers told The Times that they were shocked to hear Farook’s name linked to the shooting. 
Two employees who were in the bathroom when the bullets began to fly said he was quiet and polite, with no obvious grudges. They said Farook had recently traveled to Saudi Arabia and returned with a woman he'd met online. 
The couple had a baby and appeared to be “living the American dream,” said Patrick Baccari, a fellow inspector who shared a cubicle with Farook. 
Baccari and Christian Nwadike said Farook, who had worked with them for about three years, rarely started a conversation. But he was well-liked. They and other colleagues said Farook was a devout Muslim who rarely discussed religion at work.

Neighbors of Syed Farooq Noticed Suspicious Activity, But Didn't Report It For "Fear of Racial Profiling"


The dread of being called an Islamophobe.

Anonymous comments:
Fox and Friends mentioned the unusual activity reported by the terrorists neighbors. Several deliveries, ME type males coming and going day and night for days, apt. Booby-trapped with three reported devices...and yet authorities still question whether this incident qualifies as terrorism. 
The terrorists/jihadists wore go-pro technology...who did the transmit live action to? There are more than 2 or 3 involved in this terror attack. There are several mosques in the direct vicinity of the terror attack, suggesting a unhealthy demographic to support this attack.

Obama Appoints Anti-Israel Hamas Supporter As New ISIL Czar

Rumor Has It Malley (Center) Was Diddled By Yasser As a Boy, 
Thus Grew Up Admiring Him

President Obama has appointed second-generation anti-Israel activist, and former Iran deal negotiator Robert O. (Rob) Malley as his ‘senior adviser on the counterinsurgency campaign against ISIL.’ Malley knows much about terrorism as his dad was close friends with Palestinian terrorist Yasser Arafat (they both were born and raised in Egypt and each was funded by the USSR).
While the sins of the father are not normally visited on the son, this son has chosen to follow in his dad’s footsteps.
CAMERA reported that Malley grew up in France, where his Egyptian-born father, Simon Malley, and New York raised mother, Barbara (Silverstein) Malley, were radical publishers of a controversial magazine about Africa and the so-called Third World. Malley’s parents were rabidly anti-Israel and counted Yasir Arafat as a personal friend. Indeed, Arafat was among those “leaders” (for want of a better word) who had intervened with the French government to readmit the Malley family to France after they had been expelled for their radical activities.

ISIS takes aim at Putin, with videos showing Russian 'spy' beheading, threats to Moscow

russian spy (6).jpg
 
ISIS sent a chilling message to Moscow Wednesday, releasing a video showing the beheading of a Russian who they accused of being a spy.
ISIS sent a chilling message to Moscow Wednesday, releasing a video showing the beheading of a Russian accused of spying, and another clip that included threats to attack Moscow, as well as Washington and New York.
The video showing the beheading is believed to have come from the terrorist group’s stronghold in Raqqa, Syria, where the Russian military has conducted devastating air attacks in recent weeks. The alleged spy’s identity was not immediately known, but he is believed to have gone to Syria in 2014.
"Here today, on this blessed land, the battle [against Russia] begins," the militant says in Russian.
"We shall kill your children for every child you've killed here."
- ISIS militant
The extremist also warns the Russian people that they are likely to face another defeat in reference their loss of occupation of Afghanistan in the 1980's and that their people are not even safe in their homeland.
"We shall kill your children for every child you've killed here," he states. "And we will destroy your homes for each home you destroyed here."
The first part of the video shows a confession from the alleged spy who identifies himself as Khasiev Magomid, 23, from the Chechen city of Grozny.


He recounts how he was recruited by the FSB, Russia's intelligence services, and how he assumed the alias of Haroon when he traveled to Syria. He adds how he was tasked with collecting information on ISIS fighters of Russian origin and especially those who wanted to return to the Caucasus region and Russia to carry out attacks.
In the other video, which does not show any captives, two camouflage-garbed men are seen sitting cross-legged on a beach, rifles propped against their shoulders. The first man speaks in Arabic, while the second speaks in English with what Middle East Media Research Institute analysts believe is an African accent.


“Praise be to Allah who allow martyrdom-seeking lions to storm the capital of France,” he says, in a reference to the Nov. 13 attack in Paris that left 130 dead and hundreds more injured.
“France was the beginning,” he threatens. “Tomorrow it will be Washington, it will be New York and it will be Moscow.”


It is at least the fifth time since the Paris attacks that ISIS and its affiliates have warned of a coming attack in the two U.S. cities.
Steve Stalinsky, executive director of MEMRI, said the threat is not new, but cannot be ignored.
“Any threat from ISIS when they mention a specific city should be taken seriously,” he said. “They have been successful over the last months, and all of the sudden they are regularly mentioning New York and Washington, and that had not always been the case.”

ISIS Tweet Regarding San Bernadino Attack?

"Three lions Atjawa thanks to God, our hearts are still alive and walking around the streets of California military uniforms and heavy weapons"

Can anyone read Arabic to confirm this?

EXCLUSIVE: ISIS Adherents Praise San Bernardino Massacre, Declare "America Burning"
The Islamic State created a horrifying hashtag praising the mass shooting but did not take credit for the killings
 
ISIS extremists began celebrating the mass shooting in San Bernardino hours after the massacre, creating the hashtag #America_Burning as police hunted for as many as three shooters, Vocativ discovered. The Islamic State, however, did not take credit for the shootings in the ghoulish postings.
Vocativ deep web analysts discovered the ISIS posts on web forums where the extremists frequently share information. 
“Three lions made us proud. They are still alive,” one ISIS adherent tweeted in Arabic after the shootings at Inland Regional Center in San Bernardino. “California streets are full with soldiers with heavy weapons. The Unites States is burning #America_Burning #Takbir”
 
 “God is great and he the one to be praised for that,” another supporter posted in the forum in Arabic. “This is hell with god’s will.” But the hashtag was primarily used on Twitter where one ISIS extremist taunted the United States with a tweet that read “Let America know a new era #California #America_burning.” 
 

Another ISIS supporter posted in reference to the shooting on Twitter, “God is the greatest. May god spread fear in the homes of the Crusaders.”
