Boston, Chattanooga, New Jersey, Fort Hood, San Bernardino, Miami, are where the terrorists won. This is where the terrorist attacked, took lives, and our leadership reacts by restricting citizens, deterring investigators, and facilitating ease of access and movement for suspected terrorist. The terrorists behind all of these acts of terror were all shielded by the inept and unrealistic policies of an administration, policies which have levied unprecedented hate and division in America.
It’s ok, the government is ensuring our safety. The CIA, DHS, and FBI assure us that terror attacks like this one never happen again . . .
The Boston Terrorists, Report from Inspectors General of the: Intelligence Community, Central Intelligence Agency, Department of Justice and Department of Homeland Security,
Two years before the Boston Marathon bombings, Tamerlan Tsarnaev and Zubeidat Tsarnaeva came to the attention of the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) based on information received from the Russian Federal Security Service (FSB). In March 2011, the FBI received information from the FSB alleging that Tamerlan Tsarnaev and Zubeidat Tsarnaeva were adherents of radical Islam and that Tamerlan Tsarnaev was preparing to travel to Russia to join unspecified underground groups in Dagestan and Chechnya. The FBI-led Joint Terrorism Task Force in Boston (Boston JTTF) conducted an assessment of Tamerlan Tsarnaev to determine whether he posed a threat to national security and closed the assessment three months later having found no link or “nexus” to terrorism.
In September 2011, the FSB provided the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) information on Tamerlan Tsarnaev that was substantively identical to the information the FSB had provided to the FBI in March 2011. In October 2011, the CIA provided information obtained from the FSB to the the National Counterterrorism Center (NCTC) for watchlisting purposes, and to the FBI, Department of Homeland Security (DHS), and the Department of State for their information. Upon NCTC’s receipt of the information, Tamerlan Tsarnaev was added to the terrorist watchlist.
FBI Agent Ronald Hopper stated that the Miami terrorist, Omar Mateen,
Had a history with the agency. Agents first became aware of Mateen in 2013, after he made inflammatory statements to co-workers about affiliations with a terror group. The FBI interviewed him twice, but could not substantiate any connection to terrorists.
Again, in 2014, the FBI interviewed Mateen again because of a connection to a suicide bomber. But, contact was minimal.
Agent Hopper also said,
Mateen declared in a 911 call his allegiance in general to the Islamic State.
Agent Hooper did not go into great detail on, the ten months of FBI surveillance on Mateen surveillance in 2013. An FBI Agent had recorded his calls, deployed confidential informants to gauge Mateen’s radicalization- In response to Mateen’s desire to,
Join al-Qaeda and die as a martyr.
Despite these unscrupulous connections, the State of Flordia, provided Mateen with licenses to work as a security guard and carry a weapon in Florida. In a press release, a Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms stated that,
Mateen had purchased the weapons he used in the Orlando shooting within the past week.
We are moving backward, stuck in the past, and hinged on a political agenda that seeks to undermine personal freedom, public order, and any opinion other than the one designated popular. What the hell is going on here?
In Miami, it was not gun laws, but authoritarian social justice which has again enabled terror to strike the United States of America. As federal investigatory agencies are forced to walk a thin line to keep their jobs in today’s misguided climate that is ruled by the often inept, temper-tantrum and finger-pointing biased social justice warriors who attest that nearly everything is racist.
The reality of personal responsibility, core individual motivating factors and resting the blame upon the shoulders of the person responsible is gone.
The Fort Hood Terrorist, Final Report of the William H. Webster Commission on The Federal Bureau of Investigation, Counterterrorism Intelligence, and the Events at Fort Hood, Texas, on November 5, 2009,
On December 17, 2008, United States Army Major Nidal Malik Hasan visited the website of radical Islamic cleric Anwar al-Aulaqi. He sent a message to Aulaqi. The Federal Bureau of Investigation acquired the message. A second message followed on January 1, 2009. Members of the Joint Terrorism Task Force (JTTF) in the San Diego Field Office reviewed the messages. Concerned by the message’s content and implications that the sender was a U.S. military officer, San Diego set a lead to International Terrorism Operations Section 1 at FBI Headquarters and the JTTF in the Washington, D.C., Field Office (WFO).
Five months later, WFO conducted an assessment of Hasan, who worked as a psychiatrist at the Walter Reed Army Medical Center. WFO queried certain FBI and Department of Defense (DoD) databases and reviewed the limited set of Army personnel records available to DoD personnel serving on JTTFs. In the meantime, San Diego had acquired and reviewed fourteen additional messages and emails from Hasan to Aulaqi and two emails from Aulaqi to Hasan.
WFO did not assess Hasan to be involved in terrorist activities. San Diego advised WFO that the assessment was inadequate. Neither Field Office took any further action. Hasan sent his last message to Aulaqi on June 16,2009. Aulaqi did not respond.
Effective July 15, 2009, the Army assigned Hasan to the Darnall Army Medical Center at Fort Hood, Texas. In October 2009, the Army notified Hasan that he would be deployed to Afghanistan in November 2009.
Now, the system is blamed and you must be a “Nazi,”or a “Hitler” if you dare to think that anyone could do anything wrong, it’s the fault of society or an inanimate object. And god-damn you, straight to hell if you’re a federal investigator. How dare they investigate a Muslim, an immigrant, or someone who we consider special or convenient for today? You son of a bitching mongrel racist – who do you think you are, with this white privilege; you’re targeting and oppressing people – racist!
Theodore Parker, a Transcendentalist wrote,
The arc [of the moral universe]…bends towards justice.
There’ll be no justice here, only the party-line of the administration and an army of miscreants who make wild claims and attack anyone who does not agree with them, 100%. This army of social justice warriors, these elitists seek social purity under their prescription and definitions of what is equal, fair, and right. To contradict them leads to censorship, and is seemingly fast approaching one of the highest crimes in the land.
“The shooter appeared to be of [REMOVED] descent and was shouting ‘[REMOVED]’ as he was firing”
The short and simple message from POTUS, and DNC Candidate Hillary Clinton, to the People of the United States of America; This is Your Fault, you Have Too Much Freedom and Too Many Guns,
The Social Justice Warrior leadership, in an act of childish disregard, have turned the blame on America, the system, freedom, and the rights of the American people. After all, why would they take responsibility on their own unique leadership failings, when they can just blame Americans.
The 80 million gun owners who were not committing an act of terror, it’s their fault. This is a fine example of how the terrorists win. They attack, and we the people lose our rights, freedom of movement and become objects of scrutiny.
The San Bernardino Terrorists,
Obama Told NSC And FBI to ‘Downplay’ Terrorist Angle Of San Bernardino. A report shows that FBI reluctance could have been due to external pressure from the White House. A source told Jack Murphy, of SOFREP,
Sources indicate heated tension between President Obama and FBI Director James Comey about the nature of the San Bernardino shooting, which left 14 civilians dead. Although the FBI believed that it was an act of terrorism from the beginning, immense political pressure was brought down on investigators to avoid using the term “terrorism,” with Obama stating, “It is possible that this is terrorist related, but we don’t know…It is also possible that this was workplace related.”
A SOFREP source confirmed that after the shooting, Obama held a meeting in the Oval Office with his National Security Council, the attorney general, and the directors of the DHS, FBI, and NSA, in which a directive was given to downplay the terrorism angle.
Further, a March 2016 Inspector General, Department of Homeland Security report states,
If accurate, these accounts reveal an alarming lack of coordination between DHS components in the wake of the deadliest terrorist attack on American soil since 9/11. A complete and thorough investigation of this incident is warranted to identify failures in coordination and to implement procedures that allow for the free flow of information in the wake of potential future terrorist attacks.
Following the hearing, I am also concerned by reports to my office that ICE supervisors are seeking to identify what individual(s) furnished information to the Committee. I worry that management is seeking this information to eventually retaliate against those employees. Federal law expressly states that “the right … to furnish information to either the House or Congress, or to a committee or Member thereof, may not be interfered with or denied.” In addition, under federal law, any officials who interfere with an employee’s right to furnish information to Congress may not have their salaries paid by taxpayer dollars.
Additionally, within the Senate Judiciary findings, via Johnson, Grassley Comment on DHS Inspector General Report Revealing Lack of Cooperation Between DHS Entities in Aftermath of San Bernardino Terror Attack,
This is a classic example of the left hand not knowing what the right hand is doing in the Obama Administration’s Department of Homeland Security. Agents we depend on to keep us safe, especially hours after a terrorist attack in San Bernardino, were blocked by officials within their own agency from conducting a routine law enforcement action to prevent a potentially dangerous situation at a federal building. This incident shows the disturbing lack of collaboration between the USCIS and ICE—two agencies tasked with enforcing our immigration laws. Thanks to whistleblowers and the Justice Department Inspector General’s report, these agencies can better understand their own policies, what went wrong and the need to prevent future breakdowns.
Meanwhile, the Second Amendment is in order with the views of the Supreme Court,
The Second Amendment of the United States Constitution reads: A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed.
District of Columbia v. Heller, 554 U.S. 570 (2008), was a landmark case in which the Supreme Court of the United States held in a 5-4 decision that the Second Amendment to the United States Constitution applies to federal enclaves and protects an individual’s right to possess a firearm for traditionally lawful purposes, such as self-defense within the home.
McDonald v. Chicago, 561 U.S. 742 (2010), is a landmark decision of the Supreme Court of the United States that determined whether the Second Amendment applies to the individual states. The Court held that the right of an individual to “keep and bear arms” protected by the Second Amendment is incorporated by the Due Process Clause of the Fourteenth Amendment and applies to the states. The decision cleared up the uncertainty left in the wake of District of Columbia v. Heller as to the scope of gun rights in regard to the states.
The is no justification or defense for radical religious zealots be they Islamic operatives from the dark ages of Daesh (ISIS,) the bomb and acid throwing Christan agents of the Army of God – or terrorist of any kind. There is also no sense in relieving citizens of their rights in defense of groups who seek to harm those very same citizens. The issue is part of the on-going failures of a flaccid, incompetent, and grossly negligent administration that hinders the investigations of terrorists.
Albeit, In order to deal with the problem, we must be honest about the symptoms.
The only facts and endstate that the citizens of America have collected since the 2001 and on-going subsequent attacks are disappearing civil rights and an on-going war in which the leadership refuses to fight to win. The terrorists continue to attack and win – as every attack draws a reaction from our leadership to scold and strip rights from the people . . . and in the, as of late, defend the attacking terrorists.
