Obama Administration Jumps Into Action – Investigates Anti-Mohammad Filmmaker …Update: Far Left Offers Assistance

The feds jumped into action yesterday and brought in the anti-Muhammad filmmaker for questioning.
The AP reported:

A Southern California filmmaker linked to an anti-Islamic movie inflaming protests across the Middle East was interviewed by federal probation officers at a Los Angeles sheriff’s station but was not arrested or detained, authorities said early Saturday.

Nakoula Basseley Nakoula, 55, was interviewed at the station in his hometown of Cerritos, Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Deputy Don Walker said.

Federal officials have said they were investigating the activities of Nakoula, who has been convicted of financial crimes. If the probation department determines Nakoula violated terms of his release, a judge could send him back to prison.

Walker said Nakoula traveled voluntarily in a squad car with deputies.

For the record… The anti-US 9-11 protest in Egypt was planned before the film hit the airwaves.
The Obama Administration should know this by now.

Of course… The left is assisting the government and Islamists in exposing the filmmakers.

  • This is like living in 1930s Germany. The Obama Reich will imprison you for dissent.

    That’s right DC, go after the little guy that supposedly made the crummy little video. Don’t go after the guy in the White House and his buddies that have made the policies weakening the position of the United States and are trying to stop the 1st amendment as well as helping toppling the previous leaders of those countries and helping the Muslim Brotherhood gain power and control. Going after the guy because he went against the terms of his of his release. Yes he should have been a good boy, but putting the blame on him instead of where it should be is wrong. Again, appease the Muslims….well, they won’t be appeased that easily and will want more bloodshed as that is the way they are.

    Unless they think he was conspiring with the Islamists I don’t understand what law might have been broken.

  • BarbaraS

    The media just had to put that statement in there that the guy was convicted of financial crimes. What does that have to do with the film? If this guy is convicted of anything involving this film then I say go after all the people involved with the anti Christian films that have glutted the market. Don’t stop at that either, go after, estpecially, the filmamaker who made the film about Bush’s assassination. Although not religious, that film was incitement to violence against a sitting president.

  • zed

    I went over to huff post. The super majority of the posts were calling this guy the killer of Americans and were calling for prosecution. Also a good number of posts were calling for limiting free speech. The liberal elite has jumped the shark. I only hope an adult shows up at some point.

  • zed

    Note: they’re not investigating him over the film. He was convicted of online fraud. Part of his probation is he is not allowed online. If he uploaded this he violates his parole and gets sent to jail.

    Amazing. They can do this but Arizona isn’t allowed to enforce laws without being called Nazis.

  • LTCHawg

    Just out of idle curiosity, has anyone heard what the ACLU’s position is on this?

  • Interesting

    So were not at war with Islam, not at war with Muslims, not at war with regimes, BUT….

    At war with Christians

    “the world hating Christians for over 2000 yrs”

    If we’re throwing out the 1st ammendment then why not go after Google who owns UTube who posted the video? I demand Google be brought to justice for blasphemy of a “great religion”.

    Well, now the left is against porn?! Hah! I guess we have arrived at the end times.

  • wtd

    Ann Barnhardt: I demand to be arrested for blasphemy. Now.

    Michelle Bachmann @ Values Voter Summit puts to rest the idea this film has anything to do with ME Muslim unrest – by detailing the efforts of the OIC to purge our national security training manuals, criminalizing criticism of Islam, shaming Americans who identify the enemy etc.

  • donh

    Proof that Obama has IGNORED the outrage . Mitt Romney’s criticism be DAMNED….Obama is moving his agenda FORWARD impositing SHARIA blasphemy laws….. Now donh the blog commentator will be blamed as the cause for nuclear holocaust because he posted his 10 year old daughter’s crayon drawing of the prophet Mohammed…..> http://cdn.pjmedia.com/zombie/files/2010/04/Crybaby_Muhammad.jpg

    Nakoula plead no contest in 2010 for bank fraud and was ordered to pay more than $700,000 in restitution. He was also sentenced to 21 months in federal prison. Many records are sealed but prosecutors wanted a longer prison term and pointed out he used various aliases including some of his own relatives’ identities to open 600 fraudulent credit accounts.

    He was also arrested in 1997 and charged with intent to manufacture methamphetamine. He plead guilty and was sentenced to one year in county jail and three years probation.

    As part of his parole from his last felony, he was barred from assuming aliases and using computers or the Internet for five years without prior approval from his probation officer.

    The film won’t put him back in jail but violating his parole conditions might.. particularly since he is a twice over ex-con and has been convicted of two felonies.

    ” The left is assisting the government and Islamists in exposing the filmmakers.”

    With the Obama regime in power is there a difference?
    The leftist propaganda spreaders (MSM) do this every day.

  • crackermike

    People ask what law the guy broke. Sharia, obviously.

    If the probation department determines Nakoula violated terms of his release, a judge could send him back to prison.

    Can you spell scapegoat?

  • Jean

    If Nakoula is guilty of bank fraud what does that make Obama guilty of?

    Bribery, extortion, treason, etc, etc, etc.

    Muhammad was a narcissist, a pedophile, a mass murderer,
    a terrorist, a misogynist, a lecher, a cult leader, a madman
    a rapist, a torturer, an assassin and a looter…just like most of his peaceful protest followers who do the exact same things at this very moment.

  • donh

    #21 Stop it CHRIS…You are gonna get us all KILLED with that kind of talk! Somebody may report you to the UN panel of the blessed prophet Muhammed peace be upon him ghestapo and you will have to answer for that parking ticket you never paid back in 1997 !

    This is a very slippery slope folks….there is a “big brother” in every leftist especially this current crew in DC

    Leftists helping to out their own?
    extract from: godfatherpolitics

    Initial reports said the video, “The Innocence of Muslims,” was the creation of a conservative Israeli-American businessman named Sam Bacile. Bacile turns out to be a pseudonym for Nakoula Basseley Nakoula, an American Coptic Christian who was registered as a Democrat from 2002 to 2008, then changed his registration to American Independent. According to Los Angeles County Sheriff’s sources, he is on probation after conviction for dealing methamphetamine and committing financial crimes. On Friday, police and press were staking out his house, which has a statue of the Virgin Mary on the front porch.

  • Ella

    #13 WTD – Thank you for placing those two links!!

    May I urgently suggest that you all watch these videos, especially the second one from Michele Bachmann!!

  • donh

    #25…The Coptic Christian ….the virgin mary set on his porch…these may be staged false diversion to facilitate Coptic genocide in Egypt…and direct muslim rage at the Pope’s visit to Lebanon. I am all for investigating the film maker…Investigating his ties to the Muslim Brotherhood ….his ties to Imam Obama….They both share skills for alias and identity theft.

    Producer Of Anti-Islam Film Was Fed Snitch

    [SEPTEMBER 14–In remarks stressing that the U.S. government had
    “absolutely nothing to do with” the anti-Islam film that has touched off
    violence in the Middle East, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton yesterday
    sought to quash Arab concerns that the “disgusting and reprehensible”
    movie was somehow produced or condoned by American officials.

    However, Clinton’s attempt to distance the U.S. from “Innocence
    of Muslims” –and, by extension, its felonious producer –may be
    complicated by the revelation that Nakoula Basseley Nakoula
    became a government informant after his 2009 arrest for bank
    , The Smoking Gun has learned.

    Though many key documents from the U.S. District Court case
    remain sealed, a June 2010 sentencing transcript provides an
    account of Nakoula’s cooperation with federal investigators in
    Los Angeles (and how his prison sentence was reduced as a

    Benghazi Attack Revenge for Drone Kill of Abu Yahya al-Libi
    aka Mohammed Hassan Qaed: WH State Had 48 Hrs Warning

    [There is growing belief that the attack was in revenge for the killing
    in a drone strike in Pakistan of Mohammed Hassan Qaed
    , an al-Qa’ida
    operative who was, as his nom-de guerre Abu Yahya al-Libi suggests,
    from Libya, and timed for the anniversary of the 11 September attacks.]

    No protest before Benghazi attack, wounded Libyan guard says

    [A Libyan security guard who said he was at the U.S. consulate here when it was attacked Tuesday night has provided new evidence that the assault on the compound that left four Americans dead, including the U.S. ambassador to Libya, was a planned attack by armed Islamists and not the outgrowth of a protest over an online video that mocks Islam and its founder, the Prophet Muhammad.]

    Obama administration warned of possible
    attacks, but failed to take precautions

    [Sources close to U.S. President Barack Obama’s administration revealed that White House officials apparently received warnings that there were threats made to attack as many as seven U.S. missions in the Middle East, on the 11th anniversary of the 9/11 attacks, as early as September 4. Sources also revealed that additional warnings were received a few days later, with similar information, but that all of the warnings were largely ignored by the administration. Normally when such warnings are received by the administration, the threat level is raised at U.S. installations around the world. At this point, there is no evidence that the Obama administration communicated the warnings with Consular officials in Libya or Egypt in advance of attacks that took place Monday in Benghazi, Libya and Cairo, Egypt, leaving the U.S. Ambassador to Libya and three other Americans dead, with eight others wounded, including some U.S. military personnel.]




    Imam Obama, Hillary Clinton, the DNC and the GOP establishment want to silence dissent, quash freedom of thought and not piss off the filthy muslims that are their paymasters.

    Mittens had damn well better open ANWAR, complete the keysone pipeline, allow development throught the Gulf, expansion of our energey resourses across America. Bring the price of oil down ot about $10 a BBL to starve those filthy muslim bastards to death.

    Bringing about our energy independence is vital to our survival as a nation, Imam Obama knows it, Hillary Clinton knows it, Mittens knows it and the filthy pigslamic muslims know it. That is why Imam Obama will don everything to stop this election.

    Obama reached out to the MB and the Taliban. They responded with murder of 4 Americans in Syria and the killing of 2 marines in Afghanistan. In response Obama bent over further-increased the blame on some incidental video. He dispatched that military embarrassment Gen. Dempsey to plead with the film makers to give up their freedom of speech-implored the usually compliant Google to remove the offending vi deo-and has now unleashed law enforcement who if nothing else put a bullseye on this man’s back.

    Black flags fly over American embassies- money- visas-and access continue to flow to the offending countries and the disgraceful Hillary celebrated the end of Ramadan in the company of the Libyan ambassador to the US. Obama campaigns and campaigns protected and promoted by the prostituted media.

    Shameful. Any Democrat of principle should hang their head in shame when they look out over the damage these leftists have done to this great country. The exclusion of God and Jerusalem from their initial platform leaves them complicit and indefensible.

  • ever notice that liberals always sympathize with muslim outrage over a percieved insult to their religion. they always condemn the person that does it. but when someone does that to christianity they always sympathize with the person that is doing the insulting.

    This Liberal and former solid Democratic voter is going to go to the polling place, hold my nose and vote for Mitt Romney. And in the meantime, my money goes to Operation Counterweight.

    I’n not voting Libertarian, or for any kind of third party or write-in candidate. I am going to do what I can to vote those incompetent buffoons out of office.

    And after that, I am going to watch the new House and Senate like a hawk, so that they don’t feed at the trough like the Republican Congress did after Ronald Reagan was elected.

    I watched most of the Republican Convention, and took the trouble to pull up a few of the speeches I missed. I take great comfort in knowing that our traditional safety valve, the “other” party, has engaged in some soul-searching, as well as some very significant economic experiments in the various states. The new crop of Republican governors is impressive, as are the economic results they have obtained.

    I am a Democrat who is very relieved to see that the Republican Party has taken the steps that were absolutely necessary to develop the present ability to govern the country. We voters are fortunate, because the Democratic Party at the national level is a mess that needs to be sent home to re-think many, many issues.

  • Look-Out

    donh #2 on this thread is as suspicious as I am of the “Christian.” He’s working with this administration is my best guess. Note on #25’s post on Pg. 1 that he was a Democrat, but changed to Independent in ’08. (For such an “out there” Christian, this guy takes the prize for sinning, and probably loves giving them a bad name in the process. Taqiyya. Reminds me of HumaDuma who became almost anything, it looks like, to get access to powerful Dems – especially the one she thought would be the next president.)

    Also, I’m suspicious of Google for the FIRST time not going along with a request from this administration to take down the video. It’s still being used to distract from the truth. They’ve never cared about free speech before or access to information, burying loads of info and redirecting searches.

    They’re all in this together.
