West Virginia: Signs Supporting ISIS, Taliban Found at War Memorial

Not to mention the redneck slur. Any other slur would elicit calls for a hate crime. via Sign Supporting Terrorism Discovered At Local War Memorial – WCHS – ABC.

MARMET, W.Va — People who live in a small town in Kanawha County are stunned at what was done at their local war memorial.

Johnny Walker, the town’s public works director, discovered the signs supporting terrorism at the memorial on Thursday.

Walker is also a veteran.

“It’s very important to me and truthfully, it’s very important to everyone in Marmet. Well, let me rephrase that. Ninety-nine percent of the people in Marmet,” Walker says of the memorial.

One of the signs Walker found said “Support Isis & The Taliban.” The other cursed “incestuous rednecks.”

“It’s really disgusting. It’s hard to talk about. It really is,” Walker says as he gets emotional.

As Eyewitness News reporter Leslie Rubin was interviewing Walker, she noticed another sign that Walker says he must have missed the day before because he was so upset.

The sign was placed by the memorial for war dogs and read “My Pitbull Would eat your German Shephard.”

“This is still another desecration because another part of the military are the dogs,” Walker says holding the sign.

“Who wants to deface a memorial?” he asks.

Walker says he has contacted the authorities.

Information in cases similar to this are forwarded to the FBI and Homeland Security but since there was no direct threat made, and there was no vandalism, there’s not a criminal investigation underway.

 

Unarmed U.S Marines ‘take down’ Muslim gunman on French train, prevent deadly terror attack

Oorah! via U.S Marines ‘take down’ armed Moroccan gunman onboard a French train | Daily Mail Online.

A group of unarmed US Marines on board a high-speed train between Amsterdam and Paris foiled a terrorist attack after a gunman opened fire with an assault rifle, wounding three people.

The 26-year-old Moroccan national, who was known to security services, came out of the toilet brandishing the gun and opened fire. Fortunately, two US Marines were nearby and overpowered him before he could massacre passengers.

The suspected terrorist had at least nine full magazines of ammunition holding almost 200 rounds. He was also carrying a knife.

Unfortunately, one of the Marines was shot and is believed to be in a critical condition.

Speaking in Arras, French Interior Minister Bernard Cazeneuve praised the Marines for their timely intervention.

He said: ‘Thanks to them we have averted a drama.

‘(The Americans were) particularly courageous and showed extreme bravery in extremely difficult circumstances.’

The man was arrested by police near the town of Arras in northern France.

Train company Thalys confirmed the incident happened. A spokesman said: ‘The situation is under control, the travellers are safe. The train stopped and the emergency services are on site.’

No one at the SNCF French railways was immediately available to comment on the report.

A report on Twitter said that three US Marines detained the gunman until emergency services arrived.

The incident happened at approximately 6pm local time.

The motives behind the attack were not immediately known, although a spokesman for the interior minister said: ‘It is too early to speak of a terrorist link’.

The incident happened approximately 115 miles north of Paris near the town of Arras

Investigators from France’s special anti-terror police are leading the investigation, a spokeswoman for the Paris prosecutor’s office said.

Two of the victims are in a critical condition. The suspect is a 26-year-old Moroccan, said Sliman Hamzi, an official with police union Alliance.

A spokesman for the French state rail company SNCF said that the assailant was armed with guns and knives but gave no further details about the attack.

The gunman was arrested after the train pulled into the station in the northern French town of Arras, the SNCF spokesman told AFP.

French Interior Minister Bernard Cazeneuve arrived at the scene in Arras in the wake of the incident, which occurred shortly after 6pm local time.

His spokesman Pierre-Henry Brandet confirmed to AFP that a man had opened fire on the train but said that at this stage ‘we do not know his motives’.

Interior ministry spokesman Pierre Henry Brandet said: ‘A man opened fire on this Thalys train between Amsterdam and Paris, one person was very seriously injured. Talking about a terrorist motive would be premature at the moment.’


Updates:

The gunman was reportedly known to Spanish and French security agencies. French security believe he had ISIS sympathies (no different than Mohamed sympathies).

They beat the gunman unconscious then tied him up and then saved a passenger who had his throat cut!!! Real heroes.

Kansas, South Carolina on Pentagon shortlist to receive Gitmo terrorists

Your state may also be on the list.

“We will also be assessing other sites in the coming weeks,” Pentagon chief Ashton Carter added.

And once liberal judges release them from U.S. prisons, their whereabouts in the U.S. will be unknown…until they strike again.

via Pentagon assessing US options for Guantanamo detainees.

WASHINGTON (AP) — The Defense Department is taking another look at the military prison in Kansas and the Navy Brig in South Carolina as it evaluates potential U.S. facilities to house detainees from the prison at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, part of the Obama administration’s controversial push to close the detention center.

Navy Capt. Jeff Davis, a Pentagon spokesman, said a team was surveying the Disciplinary Barracks at Fort Leavenworth on Friday and will do a similar assessment at the Naval Consolidated Brig in Charleston later this month. Davis said the team will assess the costs associated with construction and other changes that would be needed in order to use the facility to house the detainees as well as conduct military commission trials for those accused of war crimes.

The closure of the Guantanamo Bay detention center has been a top priority for President Barack Obama, who pledged on his first day in office to shut it down. But that effort has faced persistent hurdles, including staunch opposition from Republicans and some Democrats in Congress and ongoing difficulties transferring out the dozens of detainees who have been cleared to leave.

The latest surveys come a week after a draft Pentagon plan to provide potential locations for the detainees was stymied when the administration said the Thomson Correctional Center in Illinois was off the table, according to officials. The draft plan had focused largely on Thomson and Charleston, said the officials, who spoke on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to discuss the matter publicly.

The officials said that early versions of the Pentagon report had made it clear that Thomson and Charleston were the most viable choices based on costs and the timeline needed to renovate the facilities to the maximum security levels required. Officials have acknowledged, however, that there were divisions within the Pentagon and across the administration over which military and federal facilities to highlight and how many options to assess and include in the report.

At the Aspen Institute’s recent national security conference in Colorado, Lisa Monaco, Obama’s homeland security adviser, said the administration wants to move out the 52 detainees. But, she added, “That doesn’t mean just unlocking the door and having someone go willy-nilly to another country. … It means a painstaking establishment of security protocols that would govern the transfer of that individual.”

Davis said that there are other sites, in addition to those in Kansas and South Carolina, that the team will visit. Although previous surveys and reviews have been done of many of the prison facilities, Davis said the latest visits are aimed at getting consistent evaluations and establishing a baseline of information.

While the team is looking first at some military detention centers, the U.S. Bureau of Prisons is also identifying potential civilian facilities.

Congressional opposition has been fierce.

Both the House and Senate versions of the 2016 defense policy bill maintain prohibitions on transferring detainees to U.S. facilities. The Senate legislation, however, states that the restrictions could be lifted if the White House submits a plan to close the facility and the plan is approved by Congress. House and Senate negotiators are working to reconcile the two bills.

Lawmakers from Kansas on Friday quickly denounced the survey.


“As long as this detention facility remains open, it will remain a rallying cry for jihadi propaganda,” Carter said.

If this oath breaker thinks Gitmo is a jihadi rallying cry, what does he think Ft. Leavenworth or any other U.S.-based prison would be?

Kerry continues meeting with Egypt’s banned Muslim Brotherhood

anne-patterson-450x273 via Jihad Watch.

According to Dalia Ziyada, director of the Egyptian Center for the Study of Free Democracies, U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry recently met with leading members of the banned Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt.  Kerry, said the human rights activist, covers up such meetings with controversial Egyptians who have political agendas by referring to them as members of “civil society.”

On August third, during the live television program “Dear Citizen” Ziyada insisted that Kerry met with the sons and sister of leading Muslim Brotherhood member Salah Sultan Muhammad prior to his visit to Egypt:  “And when even Americans criticized him for this, Kerry informed them that he met them as representatives of Egypt’s civil society.”


Meanwhile, via the NYT:

When Mr. Kerry arrived here on Saturday, the United States Embassy announced in a Twitter message the arrival of eight American-made F-16s for Egypt’s Air Force and provided a link to a video of the planes flying in formation over Cairo.

The US delivered 8 new F16s to the Egy Air Force this week – watch them fly over Cairo!

Obama was forced to order flags lowered in honor of Tennessee jihad victims

Leading from behind as usual. via Obama orders flags lowered to honor Tennessee victims, after criticism. Or as Pamela Geller wrote, he was shamed into it. Obama has no shame. He has no conscience. He is intentional in everything he does and does not do. Who will stop him?

President Obama has ordered that flags be lowered to half-staff at the White House and federal buildings across the country to honor the victims of last week’s shooting rampage in Chattanooga, Tenn., after facing pressure from lawmakers and others.

In a proclamation issued early Tuesday afternoon, Obama said of the Chattanooga victims, “We honor their service. We offer our gratitude to the police officers and first responders who stopped the rampage and saved lives. We draw strength from yet another American community that has come together with an unmistakable message to those who would try and do us harm: We do not give in to fear. You cannot divide us. And you will not change our way of life.”

He ordered flags flown at half-staff at the White House and “all public buildings and grounds,” as well as over military posts and naval stations and vessels — until July 25. Flags will be flown at half-staff at U.S. embassies and other overseas diplomatic offices.

The decision comes after congressional leaders ordered flags at the U.S. Capitol lowered to half-staff earlier in the day — that decision fueled questions over why the White House hadn’t yet done the same.

Rep. Duncan Hunter, R-Calif., a veteran, earlier released a statement calling it “unconscionable” that the flags had not been lowered, as of Tuesday morning. “The flag and all it represents is sacred to our military, and the President must know that lowering the flag is a signal of honor and respect,” he said.

Shortly afterward, the White House issued its proclamation, following similar instructions for the Capitol by Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell and House Speaker John Boehner.

 “Last week, five brave service members were murdered in a terror attack in Chattanooga, Tennessee. Out of respect for their courageous service and sacrifice to our nation, flags at the U.S. Capitol are being lowered to half-staff,” Boehner said in a statement.

U.S. Attorney, who threatened Tennessean’s, was featured speaker at jihadist’s Chattanooga mosque opening

Bill Killian is the same U.S. Attorney who threatened Americans in Tennessee with arrest for speaking or writing about Islam. Days ago Killian was on television referring to the Muslim terrorist attack in Chattanooga as an “act of domestic terrorism.”

via Angry protesters in Chattanooga: When’s the government going to do something? – The Washington Post.

When the Islamic Society of Greater Chattanooga held a ­ribbon-cutting for its school and mosque complex in 2012, William C. Killian, the U.S. attorney for the Eastern District of Tennessee, was a featured speaker along with the mayor and chief of police.

“Bill Killian introduced us to the FBI,” said Bassam Issa, the president of the society. “It’s a very close relationship that we have with all law enforcement.” FBI officials and local law enforcement have come to the mosque’s open houses.

There are more than 100 FBI agents on the ground in Chattanooga, primarily from the FBI Knoxville Field Office, trying to piece together Abdulazeez’s path to radicalization and violence. “That’s going to take time,” one official said. “We may never know, but we are working toward that.”

At Carl Poston’s family-owned gun shop, a few miles from Abdul­azeez’s home, demand for concealed-carry classes doubled in the days after the shooting. Shooter’s Depot, a gun store on the other side of town, said it had seen a fivefold increase, with as many as 100 people a day requesting spots in the gun classes.

“I just can’t agree that the best we can do is pray for Chattanooga,” Hamilton County Public Defender Steve Smith wrote on his Facebook page. “I think the best we can do is ascertain who our enemies are, whether foreign or domestic, and then kill them. . . . This same thing will happen again, likely soon, unless our government can do a better job of identifying our enemies.”

Even the Marines, who have grown grimly accustomed to combat casualties over the course of nearly 14 years of continuous war, viewed these deaths as somehow different and more unsettling.

“When you’re in a combat environment . . . and someone gets killed by an IED or a direct-fire engagement, as horrible as that is, its easier to accept,” said Maj. Mike Abrams, who lost four of his Marines in the attack. “When they are stateside in Chattanooga, in the heartland of America, and they kiss their wife and kids and say goodbye and go to work and they get shot . . . the shock of that is much harder to accept and much harder to find meaning in.”

Abrams said the Marines killed in the attack were being considered for Purple Hearts, an award traditionally reserved for troops killed or wounded in war zones.

Many left church services Sunday, changed out of their formal clothes and headed out to the two sites where Abdulazeez opened fire. Some huddled in small groups and prayed. Carl Ball, 70, planted an American flag in the ground in front of the building where the four Marines and the sailor had been shot. “How do you stop someone who wants you to kill them so they can go to heaven?” Ball asked. “How do you deter that?”

A few miles away at the Armed Forces Recruiting Center, the other shooting site, the crowd was larger and angrier. “We need to be stronger,” said Tim Litt, a Gulf War veteran who came to the rally with a holstered Ruger pistol. “We need a stronger White House. We need to do more.”

There were boisterous chants of “U.S.A.,” roaring motorcycles and television anchors doing live stand-ups. Proxmire, who had traveled from Delphos, Kan., was still trying to make sense of what had happened to her son, who was in surgery when she arrived in Chattanooga. “He was my hero,” she said. “He was my world.”

Behind her, people were waving American flags and protest signs.

A stranger pulled Proxmire out of the scrum, guided her toward a quiet spot near the road and hugged her. “I’m so sorry for your loss,” Alaina Fitzner, an Air Force wife, whispered to her. “We’re all behind you. You’re part of our military family, and we love you.”


To many, Tennessee seems an unlikely place for jihad, or for AG’s and some FBI members to pave the way for Islam and jihad in America. Think again, as noted in this 2013 post:

Special Agent in Charge of the FBI’s Knoxville Office Kenneth Moore, happens to be the same FBI leader who was a part of the whitewash of training materials to ensure that Muslims are not offended by what FBI agents are learning about Shariah and the Muslim Brotherhood – ie he made sure FBI agents in the field do not get the truth about the threat we face.  He was the approving authority on the FBI memo detailing the information purged from the FBI training programs.  I believe if Mr. Killian looked hard enough in the Federal Criminal Code, there is a violation to go along with this as well.

Death toll in Chattanooga jihad attack rises to 5 as Navy officer, father of three, dies

via Chattanooga shooting victim Randall Smith dies, raising rampage’s death toll – CBS News.

randall-smith-navy

A Navy sailor shot in the Chattanooga shooting rampage died Saturday, his step-grandmother confirmed to CBS News.

Darlene Proxmire told CBS Radio News that Navy Petty Officer 2nd Class Randall Smith died with members of his family by his side. Smith was a reservist serving on active duty in Chattanooga.

“He was a very passionate, loving young man, loved his family, and obviously he loved his country,” Proxmire told CBS Radio News.

The Navy issued a statement that didn’t identify the sailor but said that the petty officer wounded in the shooting died Saturday at 2:17 a.m. Four Marines were also killed in Thursday’s attack.

Smith was the father of three young daughters, Proxmire said.

He entered the Navy after losing a college baseball scholarship to a shoulder injury, Proxmire said.

“He loved the Navy,” Proxmire said. “As a matter of fact, just before this happened, he joined up again, and then this happened.”
