US attorney’s threats against Americans in Muslim rape case ‘closer to illegal speech than speech she threatens’

Source: Idaho ‘rape’: Obama prosecutor ‘silencing Americans with threats of arrest’

Reaction to threatening comments from President Obama’s U.S. attorney in Idaho following the release of two Muslim boys accused of sexually assaulting a 5-year-old girl have been swift and severe.

U.S. Attorney for Idaho Wendy J. Olson, was appointed by President Obama in 2010

Wendy J. Olson, the U.S. attorney for Idaho, indicated in a statement Friday that Idahoans who spread “false or inflammatory information” about the alleged Muslim perpetrators may be subject to prosecution. The boys accused are ages 14, 10 and 7, and their families have been evicted from the Fawnbrook Apartments in Twin Falls, where the assault allegedly took place.

The two older boys are immigrants from Sudan and the youngest is from Iraq. They are believed to be refugees but the government has yet to say exactly how they entered the country, only that they have come “within the last two years.”

The Olson statement that is drawing fire from First Amendment advocates is as follows:

“The spread of false information or inflammatory or threatening statements about the perpetrators or the crime itself reduces public safety and may violate federal law.”

First amendment attorneys contacted by WND left nothing to the imagination in their sweeping condemnation of the Idaho U.S. attorney appointed by Obama in 2010.

“Ms. Olson’s not-so-veiled threat is closer to illegal speech by a government official than the speech she threatens,” said David Yerushalmi, who has represented Pamela Geller and other prominent activists. “But this abuse of government power is no surprise coming from the political hacks this president has appointed in the U.S. attorneys’ offices.”

He said Attorney General Loretta Lynch is the latest example, for her threats to prosecute free speech critical of Islam after the jihad attack on San Bernardino in December.

“Nothing tops the abuse heaped upon Lady Justice and the Constitution ‎by Eric Holder, however,” Yerushalmi told WND. “Olson is a small fry in this heap of garbage.”

Daniel Horowitz, who represents WND on First Amendment issues, went one step further. He suggested Olson’s words, insinuated that “false or inflammatory” speech could get an American citizen arrested, consisted of a terroristic threat.

Wendy Olson should be arrested for making terrorist threats against American citizens,” Horowitz said. “She has abused her position and threatened to use the power of the United States government to punish citizens in the exercise of their constitutional rights.

She is a criminal terrorist who silences Americans through threats of arrest just as violent terrorists seek to silence us by threats of murder. She should lose her job and be jailed and when Trump builds his wall, her prison work gang should help build it.”

Horowitz added that the duplicity and double standard of Loretta Lynch, Olson and other Obama-appointed federal prosecutors is astounding.

Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan can call for 10,000 black men to “rise up,” “stalk” and “kill” white cops and that is considered protected speech by a U.S. Attorney in Florida, Horowitz said. But citizens in Idaho are somehow forbidden from commenting on an explosive local criminal case involving a heinous crime against a special-needs girl unable to defend herself.

“The basic Brandenburg v. Ohio standard is that even the clear call for violence is not a crime unless it is specifically intended to cause violence in a very specific and ‘imminent’ way,” Horowitz told WND. “This government bully knows the rule but she can destroy lives just by arresting people. She is no better than any of the Third World despots who terrorize the press and their own people. She should be deported to Syria where she can learn all about human rights.”

Even a prominent law professor writing for the Washington Post took notice of Olson’s threatening comments in an op-ed Sunday.

Writing for the Post, UCLA law professor Eugene Volokh said the aggressive words by Olson “goes beyond calling for accuracy (and trying to deter threats, which are indeed criminally punishable). The prosecutor – a prosecutor backed by the might of the federal government – is not just condemning ‘threatening statements.’ She is equally condemning ‘inflammatory’ statements ‘about the perpetrators or the crime,’ as well as ‘the spread of false information.’”

Volokh said there is no precedent for allowing the government to prosecute “inflammatory” speech.

“There is no First Amendment exception for ‘inflammatory’ statements; and even false statements about matters of public concern, the Supreme Court has repeatedly held, are an inevitable part of free debate,” the UCLA professor wrote. “While deliberate lies about particular people may lead to criminal punishment in some states that have carefully crafted ‘criminal libel’ statutes, that would be under state law, not federal law; and though Idaho still has an old criminal libel law, it is almost never used, and is likely unconstitutionally drafted given modern First Amendment standards. Moreover, honest mistakes on matters of public concern are often constitutionally protected, especially against criminal punishment.”

Idaho’s federal prosecutor “surely knows how to speak carefully and precisely about what very limited types of speech she can prosecute,” added Volokh, the UCLA professor.

Yet she chose to equally threaten federal prosecution not just for the punishable true threats – or for the deliberate lies that may be punished under state but not federal law – but also for an unspecified range of ‘inflammatory’ statements about the perpetrators or the crime itself.’”

Volokh encouraged readers of the Post to imagine if the political valences had been flipped around and it was a little black girl sexually assaulted by a white cop.

“Imagine that there was an allegation of an unnamed white police officer sexually assaulting a young girl, and imagine that there were stories – even highly inaccurate ones – circulating online accusing the police department of covering up the assault, which led to threats to local government officials. And imagine that a U.S. attorney in the Bush administration made a public statement saying, among other things, that ‘We have seen time and again that the spread of falsehoods about police officers divides our communities,’ and that ‘The spread of false information or inflammatory or threatening statements about the police officer or the crime itself reduces public safety and may violate federal law.’”

“I take it that many people would rightly demand that, when calling for calm and accuracy, the U.S. attorney shouldn’t say things that threaten criminal prosecution for allegedly ‘inflammatory’ or even ‘false’ statements. The same, it seems to me, applies here.”

 

Florida: “Allah akbar” shouting teen threatens to ‘blow up’ woman, touts ‘his people’ responsible for Orlando

Residents of a Palm Bay neighborhood had a scare Wednesday when a teenager stood outside shouting that “his people were responsible for [the] Pulse shooting,” according to a police report.

About 9:30 p.m., a woman in the 200 block of Fernandina St. looked out her window and saw the male teen “chanting” and saying “he would kill [her] by blowing himself up.”

She called police and told them the teen then reportedly said he “either shot someone or that he [was] going to shoot someone,” according to dispatch records.

The caller and police said the teen chanted “God is greater” in Arabic and knelt “in the middle of the road as if in prayer.”

The teen allegedly punched a mailbox as the caller was on the line with dispatch.

The woman did not recognize the boy, but when police arrived, an officer recognized the teen “from previous calls for service” and noted he was “obviously agitated and did not speak to officers,” according to a report.

Police witnessed the teen “shouting that ‘his people’ were responsible for the recent mass shooting in Orlando.”

Police then ordered the teen to walk toward their vehicles, but he instead “intentionally [threw] large rocks, pine cones and other various items” at officers, according to a report. The teen also picked up pieces of a broken bottle and simulated cutting himself with them.

“The subject at this time posed an immediate threat to the public, and possibly himself,” an officer wrote in a report.

Officers ultimately used a Taser on the teen after he attempted to run away, according to a report.

Brevard County Fire Rescue responded after the Taser deployment, but found the teen was clear of “further injuries.”

The teen was then taken into custody and sent for a mental health evaluation. His parents were notified.

Police reports indicate the teen has a diagnosed disorder that may have contributed to his actions.

The teen’s name was not released.


Don’t worry though, like the Muslim cop shooter near Philly, the Muslim bomb threat video at LAX, and the Muslim attackers claiming ISIS affiliation in Philly, this will go unreported by most media.

Gender-segregated prayer room planned in Canadian PUBLIC school — for Muslim “refugees”

Faith Goldy doing what no one else in Canada has the courage to do. Source: UPDATE: Teachers plan gender-segregated Muslim prayer room in NB PUBLIC school — for students who refuse to learn English – The Rebel

Today, I’ll show you that at Fredricton High School, not just anyone can greet Syrian migrants. Documents reveal it has to be someone of the same gender.

What’s more, teachers devised floor plans for a prayer room — with dividers to make sure people of the opposite gender didn’t catch a glimpse of each other while praying.

In their emails between themselves, teachers admit the Syrian students have some “cultural confusion” over gender roles — but they’re set on carrying out some of the practices that led to such confusion in the first place.

And when it comes to the male migrants at Fredericton High, a refusal to Canadianize seems to be an all-to-common theme.

Scores of emails between teachers indicate an unwillingness of the migrants to so much as attempt to speak English.

Other migrants interrupt the teachers, overpowering them by speaking to the whole class in Arabic.

U.S. Attorney for Idaho Threatens Americans Who Expose Muslim Refugee Sex Crime

via: Explosive new twist in Idaho sex assault case (on 5-year old girl by Muslim refugees)

The Obama-appointed U.S. attorney for Idaho has taken the highly unusual step of intervening in a local criminal case involving an alleged sexual assault by juvenile Muslim migrants and threatened the community and media with federal prosecution if they “spread false information or inflammatory statements about the perpetrators.”

U.S. Attorney for Idaho Wendy J. Olson, was appointed by President Obama in 2010

U.S. Attorney for Idaho Wendy J. Olson, was appointed by President Obama in 2010

“The United States Attorney’s Office further encourages community members in Twin Falls and throughout Idaho to remain calm and supportive, to pay close attention to the facts that have been released by law enforcement and the prosecuting attorney, and to avoid spreading false rumors and inaccuracies.

“The spread of false information or inflammatory or threatening statements about the perpetrators or the crime itself reduces public safety and may violate federal law. We have seen time and again that the spread of falsehoods about refugees divides our communities. I urge all citizens and residents to allow Mr. Loebs and Chief Kingsbury and their teams to do their jobs.”

Ann Corcoran, the author of the Refugee Resettlement Watch blog and the book “Refugee Resettlement and the Hijra to America,” said Olson’s statement is reminiscent of Attorney General Loretta Lynch’s warning the day after the San Bernardino jihad massacre in which Lynch said she would take “aggressive action” to prosecute “anti-Muslim” rhetoric that “edges toward violence.” Lynch was forced to walk back those comments after outrage from free speech advocates.

“This is threatening free speech,” Corcoran said of Olson’s statement. “It’s the federal government trying to intimidate into silence those citizens who don’t have resources or connections. This must mean we have hit a nerve with this administration.”

Olson was appointed to her post in 2010 by President Obama and has a history of taking strong stands against “anti-Muslim bias.”


Olson has doubled down according to Breitbart’s Katie McHugh: Obama’s Idaho Attorney Again Threatens Americans Who Protest Refugee Sex Crime

Amid a national uproar, President Barack Obama’s U.S. attorney in Idaho is repackaging her threat to investigate Americans who are protesting policies that allowed the repulsive sexual-assault of a child by Sudanese and Iraqi Muslim refugees in Twin Falls, Idaho.

The repackaged threat was published Tuesday, and makes clear that U.S. Attorney Wendy Olsen is trying to intimidate the Idaho public from debating the problems caused by Obama’s decision to import huge numbers of foreigners — and their aggressive cultures — into Americans’ quiet neighborhoods.

“The [first] statement was not intended to and does not threaten to arrest or prosecute anyone for First Amendment protected speech … [but] certain threatening or harassing communications may violate federal law and will be investigated,” she insisted in her new Tuesday, June 28 statement.

The federal threat of prosecutions comes as many people in Twin Falls protest Obama’s migrant policy, which has brought many migrants into the state for jobs, including new jobs at a large Chobani yogurt factory. The protest spike followed the June 2 sexual assault by three migrant children on one American child.

Her new statement says that “harassing” politicians may be a crime, even though the First Amendment to the constitution confirms “the right of the people…to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.”

Many in the press, public and online bloggers are misinterpreting the statement I issued on Friday, June 24, 2016, in support of the five-year-old victim of an assault in Twin Falls, Idaho, and in support of the law enforcement authorities there who are prosecuting the case. The statement was not intended to and does not threaten to arrest or prosecute anyone for First Amendment protected speech.

I issued the statement because public officials in Twin Falls have received threats.  Certain threatening or harassing communications may violate federal law and will be investigated.  I am also concerned that intentionally false and inflammatory rumors are creating an unsafe environment in Twin Falls.  In this case, it appears that the threats have resulted from false and inflammatory information spread about this crime, often times by those from outside of the community.  I encourage all to be patient while the juvenile justice system works.  I also encourage all to support this victim and her family.”

But “harassing communications” sent to public officials are not illegal, as Washington Post legal writer Eugene Volokh, who was critical of Olsen’s initial blanket statement on the Twin Falls sex assault, commented. “True threats of criminal conduct are punishable; but mere harassing communications to high-level officials are constitutionally protected.”

“I thus wish that Olson had limited her follow-up statement to true threats of criminal conduct, and didn’t also suggest the possibility of federal prosecution of an ill-defined range of ‘harassing communications.’ Still, the revised statement strikes me as much better than the original,” he wrote.

In her first statement, Olsen tried to shift the blame for the horrific crime from federal policy onto Americans who oppose Obama administration’s refugee resettlement programs: “We have seen time and again that the spread of falsehoods about refugees divides our communities,” she claimed.

In her second statement, she’s also still trying to smear the Americans who are disturbed by the crime and who are deliberately misled by secretive refugee resettlement program directors. Americans are spreading “false and inflammatory rumors,” Olson claimed.


As has been noted by several journalists – but not one mainstream media outlet – had the local prosecutor and police done their jobs there would not have been any speculation. There is no evidence that anyone intentionally spread false information.

It wasn’t until Creeping Sharia posted a witnesses account from the Behind My Back blog that the story went viral with the information known at that time.

Larger outlets like WND then took the lead following up on the story and putting pressure on Twin Falls officials to respond and release the facts. It was then the Twin Falls police confirmed the attack and arrest, although the suspects are now back on the streets.

TheRebel.com also interviewed one of the witnesses, video below, who confirms most of the original reports and adds that the knife accusation was actually a SEPARATE attack by Muslim refugees on a different young American girl! Again, media silence.

Idaho officials who initially denied any knowledge of the attack and major media followed suit, attacking those who asked questions and exposed the attack, despite the fact that most of the original accusations have been proven correct.

Virginia: @Wegmans refused to make cake for ex-Muslim group…to protect Muslims

Jihad Watch reports that Wegmans relented under pressure (from an atheist “education” group).

Recall in 2012, a New York @Wegmans Market Created a Sharia-Compliant Checkout Line for a Customers Buying Pork & Alcohol to appease a Muslim Cashier.


Source: Apostates refused service at Wegmans bakery – fear of invoking offense led to discrimination, says Ex-Muslims of North America

Wegmans, a chain of 89 grocery stores, refused to bake and decorate a cake for a private celebration for those who have left the faith of Islam.

The request included a picture of the Ex-Muslims of North America (EXMNA) name and logo, with a caption of “Congratulations on 3 years!”, but was refused by an associate from the Fairfax branch of the popular chain, stating that the request was “offensive”.

1ExMuslimsEXMNA representatives called Wegmans bakery to clarify, and were refused again, with no explanation on why the logo, name, and caption was considered offensive.

After conferring with management, the Wegman’s employee stated that her boss(es) would not change their stance on the issue. The associate further added that – the store had Muslim workers, “my employees may not know what this stands for, Ex-Muslims of North America, and I don’t have enough time and people to educate them on what it is,” and although they were not sure if the employees would be offended, they “can’t put them in that situation”.

“I’m shocked by the denial,” said Muhammad Syed, the president of EXMNA. “There is nothing about our name or logo that can be considered offensive to any reasonable individual. There are some, however, who take our very existence as an affront to their faith, and to them I have only this to say: We have every right to exist and be proud of who we are, and we won’t back down.”

EXMNA representatives reached out to the Freedom From Religion Foundation (FFRF), a nationwide nonprofit organization dedicated to protecting the constitutional separation of state and church, who agreed that the actions of Wegmans employees were unlawful and discriminatory. “Refusing to provide services to a group on the basis of their religion or lack of a religion is a clear violation of federal, state, and local civil rights laws—one we hope the company will move quickly to correct,” said FFRF constitutional attorney Andrew L. Seidel.

On behalf of EXMNA, FFRF is asking Wegmans to fulfill the original order without charge and educate its employees on their duty to serve patrons without discrimination.

“Ex-Muslims around the world are persecuted and threatened, even by their own family and friends,” Syed continued. “We assumed that here, in the United States, we could go about our business without disruption. Unfortunately, even respectable businesses would rather turn away a persecuted group than risk offence.”


As we posted a few days ago:

To convert away from Islam is “treason” that should carry the death penalty, according to Sunni Islam’s topmost religious authority.

“The penalty for an open apostate, departing from the community, is well stipulated in Sharia,” Al-Azhar’s Grand Imam Ahmed el-Tayyib declared on Egypt television last week.

“An apostate must be pressed upon to repent within a variable period of time or be killed,” el-Tayyib stated, reiterating Islam’s traditional position during a 16 June [2016] episode of a daily TV program featuring him.

Wisconsin: Paul Ryan’s Challenger Unveils Anti-Jihad Immigration Billboard

nehlen-anti-ryan-billboard

Source: Brexit Comes to America: Ryan Challenger Mounts Immigration Billboard – Breitbart

House Speaker Paul Ryan’s primary challenger, Wisconsin businessman Paul Nehlen, seems to have taken a page from the playbook of the U.K. Independence Party (UKIP) with the launch of a new billboard campaign.

On Friday morning, Nehlen’s campaign went live with a new billboard in Ryan’s hometown of Janesville, Wisconsin that is reminiscent of the distinctive UKIP-style campaign.

The ad reads: “Radical Islam Kills Americans. Vote YES for Immigration Control. Vote NO for Paul Ryan.”

The billboard then directs viewers to Nehlen’s campaign website, ElectNehlen.com.

“This is the first of many billboards our campaign will be launching to inform the voters about what’s at stake on August 9th,” Nehlen told Breitbart.

As Nehlen’s billboard suggests, Paul Ryan has a two-decade long history of pushing for open border immigration policies – including his 2015 effort to fund President Obama’s expansion to the U.S. refugee resettlement operation.

In speeches, Ryan has made the case for policies that would effectively dissolve U.S. borders — declaring that the U.S. “is more than [its] borders.” Ryan has even articulated his support for implementing an immigration system similar to the open borders policy of the European Union — calling for “an economic-based immigration system where… labor and supply can meet each other so we can help fuel our economy and create jobs.”

The phrase “labor supply and demand can meet each other,” is a centerpiece of open borders thought. Under this global, one-world theory, any willing employer should be able to hire any willing worker regardless of what country he or she lives in. This view, that America is an “idea” and not a “nation,” sees borders as an obstacle to commerce.

With regards to Islamic migration, Ryan’s controversial omnibus spending bill funded U.S. visas for nearly 300,000 (permanent and temporary) Muslim migrants in a single year.

While polling data shows that the Republican electorate overwhelmingly backs proposals to temporarily pause Muslim migration, Ryan has rejected such proposals.

He has repeatedly ruled out the possibility of making any cuts to Muslim migration— insisting that “that’s not who we are,” and that such a proposal is “not reflective of our principles.”

However, Ryan has not explained how importing hundreds of thousands of migrants from nations that hold sentiments that are anti-womenanti-gay, anti-religious tolerance, and anti-America benefits the United States or helps to protect our Western values.

As NumbersUSA president Roy Beck has explained, “Open borders is in his [Paul Ryan’s] ideological DNA … He’s an ideologue and has spent his whole life working for ideologues. Open borders seeps out of every pore of his being … Ryan is the heart and soul of crony capitalism.”
