From the Wall Street Journal December 3, 2015.

“Police were still searching for a motive late Wednesday night after two shooters stormed a holiday gathering for county employees and killed 14 people in the deadliest mass shooting in the U.S. in three years.

Syed Farook and his wife, Tashfeen Malik, dropped off their six-month baby girl with Mr. Farook’s mother early Wednesday morning, a family member said. Mr. Farook, a San Bernardino County employee, later attended a work holiday event and at some point, left the party in anger, law-enforcement officials said.

Mr. Farook, 28 years old, then allegedly returned 10 minutes to 30 minutes later, with Ms. Malik, 27. The pair, dressed in “assault-style clothing” opened fire, according to police, killing 14 people and wounding 17 others.

Hours later, the couple were killed in a gunbattle on the street with police, just 2 miles from where the mass shooting had occurred. Authorities said the pair were found armed with assault rifles and semiautomatic handguns.

Officials didn’t rule out terrorism and said they were investigating any possible connections to Islamic State, but so far had uncovered nothing linking the pair to the terrorist group.

Law-enforcement officials said they were just starting what would be a long investigation, and were searching for others who may have been involved in planning the attack. A third person was still in custody, but officials said it was unclear if that person was connected to the shooting.

“Based on what we have seen and how they were equipped, there had to be some kind of planning that went into this. I don’t think they ran home and grabbed tactical clothes and came back,” San Bernardino Police Chief Jarrod Burguan said at a news conference.

“They came prepared to do what they did, as if they were on a mission,” Mr. Burguan said earlier.

Police initially thought there could be three shooters, but by Wednesday night Mr. Burguan said he believed the dead couple were the only shooters.

Mr. Burguan said it was unclear if the couple were dating or married, but a family member said they were married.

Government records show Mr. Farook, a U.S. citizen, traveled to Saudi Arabia last year. Authorities didn’t automatically attach any importance to that trip, but they are investigating his background, the officials said. Ms. Malik’s nationality was unclear.

David Bowdich, assistant director of the Federal Bureau of Investigation’s Los Angeles office, said terrorism “is a possibility, but we don’t know that yet, and we’re not willing to go down that road yet.””

From Today News October 3, 2015.

“Yet another shooting hits close to home for Alek Skarlatos, the hero who helped stop a gunman on a Paris-bound train traveling from Amsterdam in August.

Skarlatos, an Army National Guardsman, was enrolled in classes at Umpqua Community College, where a shooting took 13 lives on Thursday, before agreeing to become a contestant on “Dancing with the Stars.””

Was this an Islamist revenge killing of Christians for stopping the Muslim attacker on the Paris train?

“Now we know why the usurper was so quick to obfuscate the details, and start blaming guns, and culture, for the attack. He was attempting to cover for his own failures. Arrest the usurper!!!!
************

According to this report, the black-Islamist terrorist who committed this act of terror, Chris Harper Mercer, had previously been identified by electronic intelligence specialists within the Foreign Intelligence Service (SVR) as being an Islamic State (ISIS/ISIL) adherent after he had attempted to gain passage to Syria via Turkey during the first week of September, 2015.

“BOB STRAUSS…..thanks for the 1:32pm post !

I just read the complete story that you posted there…..and it is everything many suspected shortly after the shooting at that small college in Oregon…

I told myself that time will expose exactly who, and what the shooter was….
and apparently it has…. in a very unique way !

I also found out Roseberg, Oregon was the birthplace of one of the three American hero’s who saved a train full of people in Paris from being slaughtered by an armed Islamic terrorist with an automatic rifle…..for their actions, they were awarded the highest medal for heroism given by the nation of France…..Obama was reluctant to even recognize the three hero’s but eventually had his Secretary of Defense award them a ‘”Soldier’s medal”,,,this is not a very high award and can be given for almost anything.

Here is the criteria for that award……..
“The Soldier’s Medal is an individual decoration of the United States Army. It was introduced as Section 11 of the Air Corps Act, passed by the Congress of the United States on July 2, 1926.[1][2] The criteria for the medal are: “The Soldier’s Medal is awarded to any person of the Armed Forces of the United States, or of a friendly foreign nation who, while serving in any capacity with the Army of the United States distinguished himself or herself by heroism not involving actual conflict with an enemy.”

Please note the award is given for heroism NOT INVOLVING ACTUAL CONFLICT WITH AN ENEMY”……Once again, Obama refuses to recognize that an ISLAMIC TERRORIST is not our enemy….the award of this lowest medal for heroism denotes his denial of an “Islamic terrorist” as our enemy….but that is not the purpose of this post….

When I found out one of those hero’s was from Roseberg, Oregon ‘bells went off in my head’ and I put two and 2 together and in my way of thinking, I figured the College Shooter was only carrying out what the Train Shooter in Paris failed to do…. that was to “kill Christians” …..remember the college shooter was asking his victims what religion they were. At that time, I did not know the shooter was half black and I did not know he was on an Islamic terrorist list that the Russian government had.

The article you posted at 1:32pm showing Mercer to be a half/black Islamic terrorist suspect only leads credit to my theory…and when Obama was so quick to go on television with his false assertions, I knew there had to be more to this story than I then knew at that time….or was being put into the public

If Russia had a list of known Islamic terrorist with Cris Harper-Mercer’s name on it,….. and if Putin offered to give this list to Obama 12 days PRIOR to the shooting but Obama refused to take it……then Obama should be held as an accessory to those killings…..

This information you posted at 1:32pm must get out into the public…and Obama must be held accountable for not taking the list as offered by Putin….but deep down in my heart, I know he won’t and the truth of the matter will never get out……..”

Thanks to all of the great commenters and citizen journalists at Citizen Wells.

Why are our military sites in this country, including recruiting stations, not armed and secure?

Why are Marines in this country being ambushed?

In my opinion, all active duty military personnel in this country should be armed while on duty.

You know, armed forces!

“Tennessee Mass Killer Linked To Islamic Terrorism”

“While the rest of the world was paying attention to the sad conclusion of the Greek tragedy now in its third bailout season, the US was focused on a another tragedy playing out in the nation’s heartland when in the latest mass shooting on US soil, 4 marines were killed when a gunman, since identified at Mohammod Youssuf Abdulazeez, 24, a naturalized citizen born in Kuwait, opened fire first at a military recruiting center and then at a Naval Reserve Center in Chattanooga, Tennessee in what officials have called a “brazen, brutal act of domestic terrorism.””

“According to Reuters, the suspect, seen driving an open-top Ford Mustang, is believed to have first gone to a joint military recruiting center in a strip mall and sprayed it with gunfire, riddling the glass facade with bullet holes.

“Everybody was at a standstill and as soon as he pulled away everyone scrambled trying to make sure everyone was OK,” said Erica Wright, who works two doors down from the center.

The gunman then drove off to a Naval Reserve Center about 6 miles away, when around 10:45 am local time, he shot four Marines before being shot and killed in a firefight with police about half an hour later. Three others were wounded in the attacks, including a police officer reported in stable condition and a Marine.””

“The FBI said it was too early to speculate on the motive for the rampage although in a follow up report we learned that the 24 year old had blogged as recently as Monday that “life is short and bitter” and Muslims should not miss an opportunity to “submit to Allah,” according to an organization that tracks extremist groups.

The SITE Intelligence Group said a July 13 post written by suspected gunman Mohammod Youssuf Abdulazeez stressed the sacrifice of the Sahaba (companions of the Prophet) “fought Jihad for the sake of Allah.” Reuters could not independently verify the blog postings. Tangentially, Site Intelligence which has been most famous recently for being the first to track down and release most of ISIS’ barbaric if Hollywood-style produced YouTube clips, was founded by Rita Katz who prior to her intelligence career served in the Israeli Defense Forces.

Further ties linking the shooting to terrorist Islamist elements emerged when the NYT reported that the father of a suspected gunman who killed four Marines in Chattanooga, Tennessee, on Thursday was investigated several years ago for “possible ties to a foreign terrorist organization.”

Citing unnamed law enforcement officials, the paper said the gunman’s father was at one point on a terrorist watch list and was questioned while on a trip overseas.

The paper quoted an official as cautioning that the investigation was several years old and had not generated any information on the son. The father was eventually removed from the watch list, the paper quoted the official as saying.

According to another, unconfirmed report, an Islamic State affiliated Twitter account tweeted about the Chattanooga military reserve center shootings by Muhammad Youssef Abdulazeez just as they began.”

Ebola tragedy revealed by BBC reporter Tulip Mazumdar, Devastating news from the Ebola clinic, This is world’s problem, We must protect our borders and travel and help them to help themselves

Ebola tragedy revealed by BBC reporter Tulip Mazumdar, Devastating news from the Ebola clinic, This is world’s problem, We must protect our borders and travel and help them to help themselves

“You can see that these doctors, who are highly trained people, got themselves infected,”
“So sending troops into an area, if they’re dealing one-on-one with a patient, they’re not going to be able to protect themselves very well. It’s not easy to [prevent transmission], because you get tired and you get careless and you make some simple mistakes. All it takes is one virus particle.”…Dr. Lee Hieb, former president of the Association of American Physicians and Surgeons

“Several weeks ago, National Nurses United began surveying registered nurses across the U.S. about emergency preparedness.  Most of the nurses are telling NNU that their hospital is not prepared for the Ebola virus.”…National Nurse Survey Oct. 3, 2014

“We must open our eyes and see that modern civilization has become so complex and the lives of civilized men so interwoven with the lives of other men in other countries as to make it impossible to be in this world and out of it.”…Franklin Roosevelt

 

 

It is too bad we are spending so much time and resources fighting ISIS, a problem that Obama, et al, allowed to exacerbate.

It is too bad these so called religious fanatics, who if they truly had religion would be assisting to help fight Ebola.

It is too bad that Muslims don’t do a better job of policing those who use Islam for an evil agenda.

It is too bad that poor people in Africa must suffer more.

We must protect our country and rally the world to fight Ebola, in an intelligent, compassionate manner.

From the BBC October 7, 2014.

“Devastating news from the Ebola clinic”

“Today we are filming at the country’s main referral hospital – Connaught Hospital in central Freetown. As we enter, I see a woman in a purple and pink shirt lying on a bench, with her head in her hands. She looks extremely unwell. This area is where patients showing symptoms of Ebola come for help, but the help is limited.

This isn’t a treatment centre; it’s an isolation ward within the hospital. People have to travel many miles from here by ambulance to get proper supportive treatment. There are just 18 beds in this hospital, and they are all full.

The latest patient to arrive is a one-month-old baby. Ebola killed both his parents overnight. The chances are he is also infected and will die within days. All medics can do is feed him and hold him through protective suits. I am reminded of my trip to Guinea a couple of months back, when I was covering this outbreak. Back then, I watched the body of a four-month-old baby lowered into the ground. Ebola also killed his mother. It’s heart-breaking to imagine the most likely outcome for this other tiny baby.”
“As we are leaving the hospital, a black truck pulls up. The burial team is here to remove two bodies and bury them in the nearby cemetery. We watch and then follow the makeshift hearse to these victims’ final resting place.

A whole area is cordoned off just for suspected and confirmed Ebola victims. Walking into it is eerie and tragic. There are hundreds of graves, most dug very recently, with fresh mounds of mud on top of them. One or two have a cross or children’s toys scattered on them. Most, though, are unmarked. What hits me is the sheer scale – 400 bodies buried here in a matter of weeks.

The burial team is efficient and almost jovial. I imagine it’s the only way they can keep performing this grim task day in, day out. The cemetery supervisor, Abdul Rahman Parker, tells me he’s been ostracised by his community – people are scared of him now because he handles the bodies of Ebola victims. But he says he doesn’t care, and that Sierra Leone needs him to continue doing this job, even if its people don’t realise it.”
“My brother Francis is sick, and they won’t take him at this centre. They say they are full. What are we supposed to do? We’ve been travelling from hospital to hospital all day and no-one will take him.”

I peer into the car. Francis is sitting in the passenger seat staring into space. His eyes are red, and he has the hiccups – both are clear symptoms of Ebola. After almost an hour of pleading, the family eventually give up. The five of them pile back into their car and drive away. Everyone in that vehicle is now potentially at risk of catching Ebola.

When we enter the treatment centre, I feel the helplessness and frustration of that family and I demand to know why they didn’t allow that potentially dying man inside. Surely they can do something for him. The centre’s co-ordinator, Luca Rolla, tells me their priority has to be their staff and the patients they are already treating. He tells me that they cannot go over capacity or they risk everyone else inside the centre. One of their doctors has already contracted the virus and is now being treated in Germany.

It’s an impossible choice for these medics, and my frustration quickly pales in comparison to theirs. Luca has taken the family’s details and if a bed becomes free anywhere in or around Freetown, he will let them know.

Luca tells me, what’s needed right now is more international medics and training of local medics, and more isolation centres. Until then – he says – he will have to continue turning patients away, knowing full well they risk going back into the community and infecting yet more people.”
“Then soon after 18:00, just as one of the BBC World presenters is about to introduce me live, my producer, Mark, runs over and tells me some terrible news. Francis Samuka, whom we watched being turned away from a treatment centre yesterday, has died. His family has called and told us he passed away at an isolation centre a few hours ago. His sister could barely speak when she was delivering the news, she was wailing with sorrow. My heart sinks… and then I hear the presenter in my earpiece saying: “Tulip, what’s the latest?”

I explain what’s happened, all the time thinking of Francis’ bloodshot eyes and the look of despair I saw in him just the day before.

I am glad we were able to tell Francis Samuka’s story. It’s important people know this is happening on a daily basis across West Africa. It underlines why governments here and global aid agencies continue to plead for more international help, so patients like Francis can be treated, instead of being turned away.”

ISIS gained power on Obama’s watch, To make US and world safer arrest impeach or remove Obama from White House, ISIS evolved from Al Qaeda, Obama bragged of demise of Al Qaeda

“The military sophistication of Isis in Iraq is much greater than al-Qa’ida, the organisation out of which it grew”…The Independent June 16, 2014

“al Qaeda’s core leadership has been decimated.”
“That’s why, working with Joe Biden and our national security team, we’ve been able to decimate al Qaeda.”…Barack Obama October 23, 2012

“Winston dialed ‘back numbers’ on the telescreen and called for the appropriate issues of The Times, which slid out of the pneumatic tube after only a few minutes’ delay. The messages he had received referred to articles or news items which for one reason or another it was thought necessary to alter, or, as the official phrase had it, to rectify. For example, it appeared from The Times of the seventeenth of March that Big Brother, in his speech of the previous day, had predicted that the South Indian front would remain quiet but that a Eurasian offensive would shortly be launched in North Africa. As it happened, the Eurasian Higher Command had launched its offensive in South India and left North Africa alone. It was therefore necessary to rewrite a paragraph of Big Brother’s speech, in such a way as to make him predict the thing that had actually happened.”…George Orwell, “1984”

 

The rise in power and wealth of ISIS happened on Obama’s watch.

Or whatever you call playing cards and golfing during a crisis is.

From CNS News November 1, 2012.

“President Barack Obama has described al Qaeda as having been “decimated,” “on the path to defeat” or some other variation at least 32 times since the attack on the U.S. consulate in Benghazi, Libya, according to White House transcripts.

This comes despite Libyan President Mohamed Yousef El-Magarief, members of Congress, an administration spokesperson, and several press reports suggesting that al Qaeda played a role in the attack.”

“Fox News reported Monday about an Aug. 15 emergency meeting of personnel at the U.S. Mission in Benghazi over concerns of al Qaeda training camps in the area.

An Aug. 16 cable from Ambassador Chris Stevens, who was killed on Sept. 11, was sent to the Office of the Secretary of State and briefed on the emergency meeting, saying, “on the location of approximately ten Islamist militias and AQ training camps within Benghazi … these groups ran the spectrum from Islamist militias, such as QRF Brigade and Ansar al-Sharia to Takfirist thugs,” Fox News reported the communication as saying.

One day after the Benghazi attack that occurred on the 11th anniversary of 9/11, Obama spoke at a campaign event in Las Vegas on Sept. 12.

“A day after 9/11, we are reminded that a new tower rises above the New York skyline, but al Qaeda is on the path to defeat and bin Laden is dead,” Obama said in Las Vegas.”

“Obama said Oct. 23 at Lynn University in Boca Raton, Fla., “al Qaeda’s core leadership has been decimated.” He repeated the same line at a campaign event in Delray Beach, Fla. that day.

That day in Dayton, Ohio, Obama said, “That’s why, working with Joe Biden and our national security team, we’ve been able to decimate al Qaeda.””

From The Independent June 16, 2014.

“With its multi-pronged assault across central and northern Iraq in the past one and a half weeks, the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (Isis) has taken over from the al-Qa’ida organisation founded by Osama bin Laden as the most powerful and effective extreme jihadi group in the world.

“Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, also known as Abu Dua, the leader of the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (Isis) has suddenly emerged as a figure who is shaping the future of Iraq, Syria and the wider Middle East.

He began to appear from the shadows in the summer of 2010 when he became leader of al-Qa’ida in Iraq (AQI) after its former leaders were killed in an attack by US and Iraqi troops.”

From Rush Limbaugh in August 2014.

“I was prepared to spend a lot of time on it today, and then it changed.  Here’s the timeline of this.  One year ago, Barack Obama… Thirteen or 14 months ago now, Barack Obama declares a red line to Bashar al-Assad of Syria, because a year ago there’s a civil war in Syria. That civil war is still going on, by the way. A year ago we were under the impression that Assad was gassing his own people and committing other unspeakable atrocities on his own people.

We, a year ago, were banging the war drums to send American bombs and other armaments to the “rebels” in Syria opposing Bashar Assad.  And the red line Obama drew for Assad was to get him to stop gassing his own people.  Well, Obama drew the red line, but people in Syria continued to get gassed. They continued to die.  And the Regime, the Obama Regime continued to believe — as did everybody else — that Assad was gassing his own people.

Most everybody believed this, and that went on for a year.  It was last August or September that we were this close — I’ve got my index finger and thumb about 16th of an inch apart. We were this close to actually maybe sending troops but bombing Bashar Assad, and Assad targets.  We didn’t do it.  Obama got called a paper tiger; Assad was puffing his chest out because red line was drawn and Obama didn’t do anything about it.

His credibility again was on the ropes.

And then shortly thereafter I remember talking about this on the radio and I had read a piece, which I reprinted yesterday and studied it all over again by Yossef Bodansky which documented (one year ago) that Assad was not gassing his own people. So I took that piece and I came here to the EIB Golden EIB Microphone and I openly speculated, based on what I had read in Yossef Bodansky, “You know, what if…?

“What if Assad isn’t doing this?  What if it’s being made to look like Assad is gassing his own people by the rebels?” Who we learned later were Al-Qaeda. The Bodansky piece documents how the United States was on the verge — with Turkey and Qatar and a couple other allies — of arming (I mean, heavily arming) the Syrian rebels and planning bombing strikes against Assad targets.  Now, that never happened.”

I am not sure if I trust the Syrian Government more than Obama.

However, this Wikileak document looks interesting.

Did the Syrian Government make a serious offer to cooperate with the US to fight terrorists in Syria.

You do not have to be a rocket scientist to figure this out.

One of 2 scenarios:

1. Obama was caught with his pants down literally or figuratively.

2. This is part of some diversionary scheme or plot to please the Saudis, et al.

“The following is an English translation of the Hebrew account of the talk given in the report:

Barack Obama: I demand that Israel agrees to an immediate, unilateral ceasefire and halt all offensive activities, in particular airstrikes.

Benjamin Netanyahu: And what will Israel receive in exchange for a ceasefire?

BO: I believe that Hamas will cease its rocket fire — silence will be met with silence.

BN: Hamas broke all five previous ceasefires. It’s a terrorist organization dedicated to the destruction of Israel.

BO: I repeat and expect Israel to stop all its military activities unilaterally. The pictures of destruction in Gaza distance the world from Israel’s position.

BN: Kerry’s proposal was completely unrealistic and gives Hamas military and diplomatic advantages.

BO: Within a week of the end of Israel’s military activities, Qatar and Turkey will begin negotiations with Hamas based on the 2012 understandings, including Israel’s commitment to removing the siege and restrictions on Gaza.

BN: Qatar and Turkey are the biggest supporters of Hamas. It’s impossible to rely on them to be fair mediators.

BO: I trust Qatar and Turkey. Israel is not in the position that it can choose its mediators.

BN: I protest because Hamas can continue to launch rockets and use tunnels for terror attacks –

BO: (interrupting Netanyahu) The ball’s in Israel’s court, and it must end all its military activities.”

Senator Burr Releases Statement on the Intelligence Committee’s Bipartisan Benghazi Report

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASEWednesday, January 15, 2014 CONTACT:Phone: Rachel Hicks(202) 228-1616

WASHINGTON, DC – Today, U.S. Senator Richard Burr (R-NC) released the following statement regarding the Intelligence Committee’s bipartisan report on the terrorist attacks in Benghazi, Libya.

“Today the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence released the most detailed, bipartisan report to date on the September 11, 2011, terrorist attacks in Benghazi, Libya.

The committee’s report presents a wide range of declassified findings that will allow the public to more fully understand the deteriorating security situation in Benghazi leading up to the attacks, and the lack of State Department recognition of the danger to our personnel.

This bipartisan report is a step forward in our understanding of these events, but should not by any means be viewed as a final verdict.  To the extent this report is incomplete, it is not due to the Committee’s unwillingness to investigate, but the State Department’s intransigence.  It is our obligation and duty to continue to ask probing questions and investigate all details as they continue to come to light – as they invariably will.

Despite the Committee’s best efforts to investigate all relevant threads of information, I still feel strongly that there remains a disappointing lack of accountability. It is my hope that this bipartisan report will serve as a foundation to continue the discussion and search for answers.”
