DOJ censors 911 transcript from Orlando – removes Mateen’s pledges to ISIS

DOJ censors 911 transcript from Orlando – removes Mateen’s pledges to ISIS  


When those written transcripts start popping up on your local news broadcasts, and you don’t hear or see the parts from Orlando terrorist Omar Mateen about pledging allegiance to Islamic State — there’s a reason for that.  The Department of Justice is having the transcripts censored.

Attorney General Loretta Lynch explained, in an interview with NBC’s Chuck Todd on Meet the Press:
               
“What we’re not going to do is further proclaim this man’s pledges of allegiance to terrorist groups, and further his propaganda,” Lynch said. “We are not going to hear him make his assertions of allegiance [to the Islamic State].”

 It appears, from the interview, that we will get to see Mateen’s references to his stated motive for the attack: that he “wanted America to stop bombing his country.”  He made this widely reported statement during hostage negotiations with the police.

(The interview with Lynch starts at the 2:00 mark.)

  


So Mateen’s claims and state of mind will be presented to the American public in the light most sympathetic to his cause.  You’ll be bombarded with an accusation that you’re “bombing his country” (which for the record is actually the United States of America, not Afghanistan, given that Mateen was born here and was an American citizen).  But the Obama administration won’t let you read, hear, or otherwise inspect his pledges of allegiance to a vile, bloodthirsty, atrocity-committing Islamic guerrilla-terrorist group.

There is no justification for this censorship, of course.  Consider the contrast between this bizarre, unjustified, Orwellian redaction and the constant references to the Confederate battle flag after the Dylann Roof atrocity in Charleston last year — a stream of references in which the Obama Justice Department fully participated.
Not only was the Confederate-flag theme constantly invoked.  The media and Democratic politicians and activists did way more than do Dylann Roof’s dirty work for him.  They manufactured the impression of a Mateen-like explicitness in Roof’s motives.

There were a few photos of Roof posted on social media with the Confederate flag or flag-themed items, but Roof made no declarations of allegiance during the attack, or before or after it, for that matter.  I don’t doubt the particular trend of his evil views, but he didn’t proclaim them clearly as a motive for his attack on the black church in Charleston.  Others had to flog that theme to increase its prominence and clarity in the public mind.

The DOJ was apparently happy to do that — to “further” Roof’s imputed propaganda, and “further proclaim pledges of allegiance” that he never actually made in relation to the attack.  For some reason, it wasn’t dangerous to the American public to have the Confederate flag (and a hysteria-wave about “white supremacism”) shoved in its face after the Charleston attack.  It was perfectly fine for the federal authorities to not just let Americans get a big load of Roof’s imputed propaganda, but to make it up and broadcast it for him.

In the case of Islamic terrorist Omar Mateen, however, the DOJ won’t even let the most basic truth about his clearly-stated motive into the written record, or onto the public airwaves.  Instead, DOJ is going to effectively sell the American public a lie, and censor the truth from history.
Once more:  this is Stalinism.  The U.S. Department of Justice is behaving like an organ of the Soviet State circa 1935.  It’s already here.

Gun control, distracting from the real issues,

 

Felicia Tweedy 6/25/16


With all the talk once again about gun control, distracting from the real issues, I wanted to post this photo of myself to make a point.

I've heard a number of people, primarily liberals, and sadly a number of women, who have said remarks to me about being "afraid of guns", like it's a good thing. My response has always been - be afraid of a gun when it's facing at you and you have no way to defend yourself. Of course these people are for gun control. I find it funny that they will accuse conservatives of being afraid of things that are "different" (aka race, sexual orientation, etc) and that's why they want to ban or restrict others rights, yet when it comes to guns, their fear because of their misunderstanding of guns, the second amendment and gun control, is justified and ok. 

In this photo I am holding an AR. This is the same type of weapon the shooter used in the Orlando shooting and has been used in other terrorist attacks and mass shootings (yes there is a difference between the two). People who know me, know that while I defend the second amendment, I'm not out shooting every weekend, I don't collect guns, I'm not a violent person and I don't think I'm cool because I can shoot a gun or am posing with a gun like this. The gun may look daunting but in my hands, but probably a bit less scary in my hands than what it's known for. This gun isn't mine, it's a friends. I wasn't scared of it, in fact I wanted to learn more about it.
People may say there is no reason for an average citizen to have a gun like this. But how do people who are afraid of guns and know so little about them, able to make such a judgement? Who is to say who should have one and who shouldn't? Should only the government have access to such guns while citizens are banned from them? You should ask people who have lived in countries that have been communist, had a revolution, etc, how safe that is. Where is the line drawn?

Most importantly, say you and I agree that this type of gun isn't needed by the average citizen (just hypothetically) - do you think that outlawing this gun will stop terrorist attacks and mass shootings? How well have drug laws stopped addiction in this country? Heroin is illegal but how easy is it to get if you really want it? Since when do terrorist and criminals obey and respect the laws of the land? Will a law make them unable to get these guns? Of course not. Gun laws will simply take this gun out of my hands and people like me but it will keep it in the hands of people like the shooter in Orlando. Are you more afraid of me having a gun like this or someone like him? 

Gun control laws, to me, are just ways for people to give themselves a false sense of security without admitting to or tackling the real issues. They do nothing to stop criminals and definitely don't stop terrorists. Heck I don't remember guns being used at all in the worst terrorist attack on American soil. We need to get real about the world we live in. We need to get real about three main things in this country -

1. Terrorists want to kill is by any means possible. Orlando wasn't a hate crime. It was a terrorist attack. The LGBT community may have been targeted in that attack but they were also targeted because they are Americans. Terrorists are waging a religious war against us. Yes, radical Islam wants to kill us. And gun laws aren't going to stop them. Time to get real about the threat we face - all of us regardless of race, age, sex or sexual orientation - and what we need to do to stop it and stand against it. 

2. Mental illness - mass shootings that were not related to terrorism all have a mental health component, yet it remains the elephant in the room. Someone mentally ill will go to any means necessary to get a gun and believe me, the black market out there isn't that hard to find if someone is dedicated to getting what they want. Laws won't stop them. We need to increase both awareness and access to mental health services. We need to remove the stigma of mental health issues in this country. Passing more gun control won't change the tragedies that have happened from happening again. They always do and many have happened in States with some of the strictest gun control laws. 

3. If we had more people in society who were trained and educated on gun use and carrying a weapon, there would be more deterrents on soft targets and when attacks like this happen, casualties could be minimized. I've always said, if I was ever in such a horrible situation, I would like to have the option to fight back rather than only have the option to hide or run. I find it both appalling and elitist for someone like Hillary Clinton to stand up there and tell people that guns wouldn't have saved lives in an attack like Orlando, who wants to take guns out of the hands of responsible law abiding citizens yet tax payer money goes to have a secret service detail and armed guards around us. Our current President has armed guards that protect his family. If guns don't save lives then why do they need such protection. Average citizen can't afford armed guards but should have the right to get training and have the ability to arm and protect themselves.


One note to add: While the talk of things like love, tolerance, prayer, etc are important, they are not enough with what is going on in this world. The words may sound good, may be inspiring and bring comfort after a tragedy, they alone will not change or win the battles we face. It takes action from us as a nation.

This Woman Who Cheered The 9/11 Attack Is Now In Charge Of Your Security!

If I were the manager of a bank, and I was responsible for hiring people I probably wouldn’t hire someone that was the getaway driver for the person who robbed the bank most recently…
 
One of the sitting members on the Homeland Security Advisory Council’s (HSAC) Subcommittee on Countering Violent Extremism is a 25-year-old immigrant of Syrian heritage who said that the 9/11 attacks “changed the world for good” and has consistently disparaged America, free speech and white people on social media.

Laila Alawa was one of just 15 people tapped to serve on the newly-formed HSAC Subcommittee on Countering Violent Extremism in 2015 — the same year she became an American citizen. Just last week, the subcommittee submitted a report to Department of Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson, recommending that the DHS avoid using Muslim terminology like the words “sharia” and “jihad” when discussing terrorism.

 Alawa says she immigrated into the U.S. when she was ten years old. Her family had already left Syria by the time she was born. “But I will always be Syrian. I will always be from Syria. I will always be of Syria,” she wrote in November 2015, calling the country her “homeland.”

In 2014, Alawa commemorated the September 11 attacks by tweeting that “9/11 changed the world for good, and there’s no other way to say it.”



9-11 tweet
Exactly a year later, she claimed that, after September 11, “Being American meant you were white.”
In April 2013, she responded to a tweet from activist Pamela Geller who called the Boston Marathon bombings “jihad” by tweeting: “go fuck yourself.”
tweet 2
On September 21 — the day after Secretary of State John Kerry announced that the U.S. would accept 85,000 Syrian refugees in 2016 and 100,000 more in 2017 — Alawa mocked the “Salty white tears all over my newsfeed.”
tweet 3
In the Countering Violent Extremism report published last week, Alawa and her fellow subcommittee members recommended that the Department of Homeland Security “adapt to the changing nature of violent extremism itself” by devoting more attention to “anarchists, sovereign citizens, white-supremacists, and others.”
tweet 4
The report also recommended that, in order to combat violent extremism, the DHS “Focus on gender diversity of youth through careful attention to the range of push and pull factors that attract individuals of differing gender.”


As originally reported by The Daily Caller, the subcommittee Alawa serves on instructed the DHS to begin “using American English instead of religious, legal and cultural terms like ‘jihad,’ ‘sharia,’ ‘takfir‘ or ‘umma‘” when discussing terrorism in order to avoid offending Muslims.

Two months before Secretary Johnson created the Subcommittee on Combatting Violent Extremism, Alawa tweeted: “THE US HAS NEVER BEEN A UTOPIA UNLESS YOU WERE A STRAIGHT WHITE MALE THAT OWNED LAND. straight up period go home shut up.”

Gun Shop Reported ‘Suspicious’ Omar Mateen to FBI

476655_868218839953106_4260409809582513606_o 
by Frances Martel16 Jun 2016
 
 

Robbie Abell, owner of a Florida gun shop, says he alerted authorities that a suspicious man had come in asking about body armor. Five weeks later, Omar Mateen – equipped with weapons he bought at a different shop after Abell’s employees refused to sell to him – killed 49 people and injured as many at Pulse night club in Orlando.

 

The Wall Street Journal quotes Abell as telling them that his store, Lotus Gunworks of South Florida, “shut him down on all sales” after be began asking bizarre questions about body armor and bulk ammunition. “The questions he was asking were not the normal questions a normal person would be asking… He just seemed very odd,” Abell said. The armor Mateen asked about is not traditionally available to civilians.
Abell noted that he made a phone call during his time in the store, and appeared to be speaking in Arabic. Mateen is from an Afghan family, and his father – a prolific pro-Taliban Youtuber – is known to speak at least two Afghan languages, Dari and Pashto. Mateen’s wife, Noor Salman, identifies as “Palestinian,” which would make her a likely Arabic speaker. She has confessed to shopping for weapons with Mateen.
Abell says his store alerted authorities to the suspicious man, though he did not say which authorities– whether he spoke to local police, FBI, or Homeland Security. Local CBS 12 notes that Abell’s store appeared to be following the procedures “in line with the FBI’s push for people to ‘see something, say something, if they witness anything that makes them feel uncomfortable.”

The FBI had been alerted to Mateen as a potential terrorist in the past. The FBI had investigated Mateen for violent remarks and suspect behavior three times between 2013-2014, while he was employed as armed security personnel at the firm G4S. He was never fired despite being investigated, however, and the FBI eventually dropped their probe against Mateen.


Witnesses speaking to media who knew Mateen throughout his life have consistently described him as odd, unsettling, and violent. Former classmates recall him threatening to kill everyone present at a cookout on one occasion because of the presence of pork meat; a former G4S coworker said he routinely discussed committing a massacre.

Before being killed by police on Sunday, Mateen left several Facebook messages pledging allegiance to the Islamic State, and also did so in a phone call to 911 from inside Pulse.

Black Panthers Armed With Machine Guns Threaten Texas Cops In One Extremely Violent And Disturbing Sentence

 
Posted by /
 It’s apparent that the veiled verbal threats from this and other black hate groups has finally spilled blood unto the street of Houston, Texas. As an eerie warning by armed Black Panther members foretold almost in detail two weeks prior to the assassination of the brutal ambush murder of Deputy Darren Goforth by Shannon Miles.

These chilling words shouted out in front of the Walter County jail and apparently directed at law enforcement;  "You’re gonna stop doing what you’re doing, or we will start creeping up on you in the darkness,” is sending shock-waves within the law enforcement community.

And what took place on the night of August 28th almost mirrors exactly the cryptic warning of  “creeping up behind the Harris County deputy sheriff, Darren Goforth standing at a convenience store pumping gas into his patrol vehicle, as Miles sneaked out of that darkness and senselessly pumped 15-rounds into Goforth’s back and head, killing him instantly.
Was this overt threat to law enforcement two weeks prior of the brutal assassination of Sheriff, Darren Goforth merely coincidental, or was this an actual “call to arms”?

The comments, made by a leader of the Houston-based chapter of the New Black Panther Party, were captured on a short video clip from the scene by the Houston Chronicle.
The video captures the uniformed leader of the protest shouting directly into a megaphone; “You think we’re not pissed off a bunch about y’all killing our sisters? You think its okay? [We’re] the wrong n***ers to mess with. You’re gonna stop doing what you’re doing, or we will start creeping up on you in the darkness.”


 
And there were still other recorded statements directed at law enforcement; “The revolution is on… Off the pigs,” and “Oink Oink… Bang Bang!,” was the message leveled by the heavily armed Black Panthers directly at Harris County deputies who had been asked by the Waller County Sheriff to come out to help keep the peace

BREAKING: Hillary Clinton’s Connection To Orlando Terrorist Has Been EXPOSED!

 
 
 News just leaked out about Democrat Presidential candidate Hillary Clinton that she doesn’t want you to know. We’re now learning about her close connection to the Islamic terrorist in Orlando Florida, Omar Mateen. While serving in the Obama administration, Hillary Clinton worked closely with the President to defend Islamists from critics, and it just back fired.

Recently retired Department of Homeland Security (DHS) agent Philip Haney reports that the mosque Mateen attended several times every week is the same mosque protected by Hillary’s State Department after the Islamic terrorist attack in San Bernardino, California by Syed Farook and Tashfeen Malik.

Haney’s case on the mosque drew concern from Hillary’s State Department and the DHS’s Civil Rights and Liberties Office because they believed it unfairly singled out Muslims. His report was heavily edited and scrubbed by the State Department, and no action was taken to shut down the mosque:
  
As a member of one of the National Targeting Center’s advanced units, Haney helped develop a case in 2011 on a worldwide Islamic movement known as Tablighi Jamaat, as he recounts in his new book “See Something, Say Nothing: A Homeland Security Officer Exposes the Government’s Submission to Jihad.” Within a few months, the case drew the “concern” of the State Department and the DHS’s Civil Rights and Civil Liberties Office because the Obama administration believed it unfairly singled out Muslims. The intelligence, however, had been used to connect members of the movement to several terrorist organizations and financing at the highest levels, including for Hamas and al-Qaida.
In the immediate aftermath of the Orlando massacre, Haney has found that the Islamic Center of Fort Pierce, Florida, is part of a network in the United States that originated in the Indian subcontinent.
The Fort Pierce mosque’s website features a link that demonstrates its relationship to the Shariah Board of America, a division of the Rahmat-e-Alam Foundation, which operates the Darul Uloom Chicago madrassa.
The madrassa is closely affiliated with the Institute of Islamic Education, which was a major component of Haney’s Tablighi Jamaat case.
Along with the State Department’s and Department of Homeland Security’s quashing of the case in June 2012, the administration subsequently ordered the deletion of an additional 67 records related to a report on the Institute of Islamic Education.
Haney explained that this kind of information comprises the “dots” that counter-terrorism analysts connect to form cases that are used to identify potential terrorist threats.
“This case struck me as very similar to the San Bernardino shooting case,” Haney told WND on Sunday. “I suspected that they were both part of a national and international network of organizations.”
He said that using open-source information, beginning with the Islamic Center of Fort Pierce, he discovered Sunday afternoon that his initial suspicions were correct.
“It’s exactly how I would have approached a case if I was still active duty,” he said.
“The FBI had opened cases twice on him, and yet they found no evidence to charge him,” Haney pointed out.
“It means they didn’t go through the same basic, analytical process that I went through over a three- or four-hour period in which I was able to link the mosque to my previous cases.”
The Orlando Sentinel reported the FBI interviewed Mateen three times for having alleged terrorist ties. He came to the FBI’s attention in 2013 after he made inflammatory remarks to co-workers, but the investigation was closed.
In 2014, he was interviewed again for making contact with a suicide bomber.
Another member of the Fort Pierce mosque, 22-year-old Moner Mohammad Abusalha, blew himself up in an attack in Syria in 2014 with an explosives-laden truck.

ISIS Reports Leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi is Dead Following US Airstrikes Read

Baghdadi 03

 Confirming the deaths of insurgent leadership is complicated. Airstrikes have a way of complicating postmortem identifications. But reports indicate that ISIS leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi has been killed in a US air strike in Raqqa.

Baghdadi’s death, reported in the Turkish daily Yenis Safak, would be welcome news. It would mean the elimination of a charismatic leader with a cult like following, and could leave a leadership vacuum that would lead to more infighting in ISIS.
Yet al-Baghdadi, the self-proclaimed caliph of all Muslims, has been killed before–or so we were told.  Those previous reports were all a bit premature. The photos below are both examples of false reports.

The initial reports this time say he was killed Sunday, June 12th, but the U.S. has yet to confirm the reports. Perhaps, after false alarms, they’re taking greater pains to confirm the facts.

The flip side to that is the very real possibility that this is just another red herring. The Pentagon is issuing plausible denials, saying that they’re unaware of any ISIS leadership being killed in the recent raids.

Baghdadi claims to be descended from the Prophet Muhammad. He’s at the helm of the the jihadist element of ISIS, operating in Iraq and Syria.

His mystique for his followers comes from his almost ghost-like way of appearing and disappearing. There is a $10 million dollar bounty on him, too, which has driven him farther underground. Yet he still manages to be hugely influential.

Baghdadi has a PhD in Islamic studies and was a professor at Tikrit University joined the insurgency after the 2003 U.S. invaded Iraq.  He refused to join al-Qaeda, though. Instead, he rallied a group of ISIS supporters who stood in opposition to al-Qaeda, and has gained significant influence as a result

 

Ryan: Muslim ban not 'in our country's interest'


By Scott Wong - 06/14/16


Speaker Paul Ryan (R-Wis.) on Tuesday pushed back on presumptive GOP presidential nominee Donald Trump’s call for barring Muslims from entering the United States, saying a ban was “not in our country’s interest.”

“I do not think a Muslim ban is in our country’s interest,” Ryan told reporters at GOP national headquarters. “I do not think it is reflective of our principles, not just as a party but as a country.”
 Ryan’s remarks came one day after Trump doubled down on his plan to temporarily ban nearly all Muslims from entering the U.S. in the wake of the terrorist attack at a gay nightclub in Orlando — the deadliest mass shooting in American history. The Orlando gunman was born in New York to Afghan immigrants.
Trump also called for a ban on immigration from all countries that have a history of terrorism. 
Tuesday marked just the latest example of the Speaker, the highest-ranking elected Republican in the country, breaking with Trump, who will accept the GOP nomination next month in Cleveland.
In recent months, Ryan has condemned Trump for refusing to distance himself from white supremacists, for inciting violence at his rallies and for launching racial attacks against a Mexican-American federal judge.
Last December was the first time Ryan admonished Trump for proposing a temporary ban on Muslims, something Ryan at the time called “unconstitutional” and not reflective of conservatism.
“I think there is a really important distinction that every American needs to keep in mind: This is a war with radical Islam. It’s not a war with Islam,” Ryan said Tuesday.
“Muslims are our partners. The vast, vast majority of Muslims in this country and around the world are moderates. They’re peaceful,” the Speaker continued. “They’re among our best allies, among our best resources in this fight against radical Islamic terrorism.”

In response to the Orlando attack, which left 49 dead and scores more injured, Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.) said the House this week will vote on a package of bills to combat the threat of homegrown terrorism.

On Tuesday afternoon, FBI Director James Comey and Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson will also provide a classified briefing on the Florida attack to all House members. Senators will be briefed on Wednesday.
“As Americans, we need to up our game to confront this real threat,” Ryan said. “We don’t think the administration has done a good enough job in confronting this threat.
“We think more needs to be done.”
