Prominent UK Muslim Asim Qureshi spoke with Jon Snow today about Mohammaed Emwazi after he was named as the Islamic State ‘executioner’ Jihadi John. Qureshi says Jihad John was a “beautiful man” who wouldn’t hurt a fly.

Jihad John lived in a prominent neighborhood and went to an elite school. But, according to his defenders, British security officials drove him to become an ISIS beheader.

Qureshi also blamed the British security services for his radicalization.
The Brits drove him to behead innocent Westerners.

Illegal Immigrant Is Fourth Suspect Taken Into Custody in NYC ISIS Case (Video)

Posted by Jim Hoft on Thursday, February 26, 2015, 5:29 PM

A fourth man and illegal alien was taken into custody in connection with the New York City ISIS case.
The man is being held on immigration charges.

Three other men were arrested on Wednesday.
Two were from Uzbekistan. One was from Kazakhstan.

NBC New York reported:

A fourth man has been taken into custody in connection with the federal investigation into three Brooklyn men who allegedly plotted to travel to Syria to join ISIS and carry out domestic attacks if they failed, law enforcement sources tell NBC 4 New York.

The man, who sources say spent time in Norfolk, Virginia, about a 10-minute drive from Chesapeake, where one of the suspects arrested in Wednesday’s raids worked at a kiosk operated by another of the suspects, is being held on civil immigration charges.

No criminal charges have been filed against the man. The FBI is looking into any potential ties he may have to the three suspects rounded up Wednesday — 24-year-old Abdurasul Hasanofvich Juraboev, 19-year-old Akhror Saidakhmetov and 30-year-old suspect Abror Habibov.

Authorities allege the men — two Uzbekistan citizens and a Kazakhstan citizen, all three of whom lived in Brooklyn — conspired to join ISIS overseas and return to New York to shoot police officers and FBI agents if they failed. Two planned to travel; one is accused of funding the operation.

The youngest man, Saidakhmetov, allegedly posted on an Uzbek-language website in the last six months that he would buy a machine gun and shoot police officers and FBI agents if his plan to join ISIS was thwarted, according to the complaint unsealed Wednesday. In August, 24-year-old Juraboev posted on the board that he would kill President Obama if ISIS asked him to and asked for help getting weapons, according to the complaint.

He also said he would plant a bomb on Coney Island if the terror group asked, the complaint said.

 

FLASHBACK… Obama in 2008: “I Am Not Going To Take Your Guns Away, That Just Ain’t True” (Video)

Posted by Jim Hoft on Thursday, February 26, 2015, 3:13 PM

Barack Obama in 2008 made this promise to his supporters.

“I believe in the Second Amendment. I will not take your shotgun away. I will not take your rifle away. I won’t take your handgun away… But I am not going to take your guns away. So if you want to find an excuse not to vote for me, don’t use that one because it just ain’t true. It ain’t true.”

Via Free Republic:

His campaign also ran this ad:
“Barack Obama WON’T Take Away Your Gun…”

But that was in 2008.
Today the Obama administration announced a ban on AR-15 bullets by executive action.
The move is being called his “back-door gun ban.”

 

Obama to Ban Ar-15 Bullets By Executive Action – Attempts a Back-Door Gun Ban (Video)

Posted by Jim Hoft on Thursday, February 26, 2015, 3:06 PM

Barack Obama is going to ban on 5.56 mm ammo.
The ammo is the most-used AR bullets in America.

Many call this Obama’s back-door gun ban.

The Washington Examiner reported:

As promised, President Obama is using executive actions to impose gun control on the nation, targeting the top-selling rifle in the country, the AR-15 style semi-automatic, with a ban on one of the most-used AR bullets by sportsmen and target shooters.

The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives this month revealed that it is proposing to put the ban on 5.56 mm ammo on a fast track, immediately driving up the price of the bullets and prompting retailers, including the huge outdoors company Cabela’s, to urge sportsmen to urge Congress to stop the president.

Wednesday night, Rep. Bob Goodlatte, the Republican chairman of the House Judiciary Committee, stepped in with a critical letter to the bureau demanding it explain the surprise and abrupt bullet ban. The letter is shown below.

The National Rifle Association, which is working with Goodlatte to gather co-signers, told Secrets that 30 House members have already co-signed the letter and Goodlatte and the NRA are hoping to get a total of 100 fast.

“The Obama administration was unable to ban America’s most popular sporting rifle through the legislative process, so now it’s trying to ban commonly owned and used ammunition through regulation,” said Chris W. Cox, executive director of the NRA-ILA, the group’s policy and lobby shop. “The NRA and our tens of millions of supporters across the country will fight to stop President Obama’s latest attack on our Second Amendment freedoms.”

Remember this campaign ad from 2008?

Yeah, that was a lie, too.

 

Obama Threatens ICE Agents if They Deport Illegal Aliens Protected by His Decrees

Posted by Kristinn Taylor on Thursday, February 26, 2015, 2:00 PM

obama king immigration drudge
Barack Obama, acting more like a king than a president, issued a threat to Immigration and Customs Enforcement officers if they disobey his orders to not deport illegal aliens he is protecting with ‘executive action’ memos that are being blocked by an emergency court order, saying:

“…the bottom line is, is that if somebody is working for ICE and there is a policy and they don’t follow the policy, there are going to be consequences to it.”

Illegal immigrants
Obama is turning the rule of law upside down. Who does he see as criminals in this picture?

At the same time Obama was threatening ICE agents for following the law and not his dictates, Obama claimed he himself would follow the law—adding a ‘but’ clause to his presidential oath of office to “preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of the United States.”

“…we’re going to continue to pursue all legal avenues to make sure that we have a country in which we are respecting not only the law, because we’re a nation of laws, but we’re also respecting the fact that we’re a nation of immigrants.”

Obama’s position is that illegal aliens who broke laws to enter the country, broke laws to live in the country and broke laws to work in the country should remain in this country because they have been “doing the right thing” in Obama’s view.

“We know that we should be deploying our resources and focusing it more on dealing with felons and national security issues with respect to our borders, and not focusing on the mom who’s working someplace, looking after her kids and doing the right thing.”

Obama made the threat to ICE agents at a town hall meeting held on Wednesday in Miami with an audience of select illegal aliens and family members sponsored and broadcast by the Spanish language network Telemundo and MSNBC. Obama compared ICE to the military where soldiers have to follow orders. Obama failed to note that soldiers have a duty to disobey orders they know to be unlawful.

“MR. DIAZ-BALART: But what are the consequences? Because how do you ensure that ICE agents or Border Patrol won’t be deporting people like this? I mean, what are the consequences?

“THE PRESIDENT: José, look, the bottom line is, is that if somebody is working for ICE and there is a policy and they don’t follow the policy, there are going to be consequences to it. So I can’t speak to a specific problem. What I can talk about is what’s true in the government, generally.

“In the U.S. military, when you get an order, you’re expected to follow it. It doesn’t mean that everybody follows the order. If they don’t, they’ve got a problem. And the same is going to be true with respect to the policies that we’re putting forward.”

Obama was interviewed by Telemundo’s Jose Diaz-Balart and took questions from the audience.

A transcript of Obama’s remarks at the town hall was published by the White House.

 

OH NO! MO GOP Gubernatorial Candidate Tom Schweich Hospitalized – Gunshot Wound! …UPDATE: TOM IS DEAD

Posted by Jim Hoft on Thursday, February 26, 2015, 1:04 PM

tom schweich
Republican Tom Schweich is Republican State Auditor.
He has busted at least 30 state officials for embezzlement.

This is horrible news.
Tom Schweich was hospitalized today with a gunshot wound.
KY3 reported:

Missouri Auditor Tom Schweich is at a hospital after experiencing what his staff is describing as a “medical situation.”

Auditor’s spokesman Spence Jackson said Schweich “experienced a medical situation at his home” in Clayton on Thursday morning and is being treated at a St. Louis area hospital.

Jackson declined to release any other details about Schweich’s ailment or condition.

Schweich is a Republican who won re-election to a second, four-year term in November. He announced a month ago that he is seeking the Republican nomination for governor in 2016.

The Post Dispatch said it was a self-inflicted gunshot wound.

State Auditor Tom Schweich was taken to a St. Louis-area hospital Thursday after what his office described as “a medical situation” that occurred at his home in Clayton.

“He is receiving treatment at a local hospital,” the statement said. “We ask for respect and privacy for him and his family during this time.”

A police source said Schweich had sustained a self-inflicted gunshot wound.

Schweich, a lawyer, was re-elected last November to a second term as auditor. He announced last month that he is seeking the Republican nomination for governor. He faces Catherine Hanaway, a former House speaker and former U.S. attorney, in what has become an increasingly bitter campaign.

Radio host Jamie Allman says Tom has passed away.

UPDATE: Just confirmed from Tom’s office. Auditor Tom Schweich has passed away.
Today we lost a good one.

Update: Tom was a great friend.
I traveled with him and Ambassador Bolton across Missouri back in April.

TYRANNY: FCC Votes to Take Over Internet! #NetNeutrality

Posted by Jim Hoft on Thursday, February 26, 2015, 12:56 PM

THE FCC TOOK OVER THE INTERNET TODAY–

FCC Ajit Pai says “net neutrality” is a “solution that won’t work to a problem that doesn’t exist.”

FOX News reported:

The Federal Communications Commission on Thursday adopted sweeping new regulations sought by President Obama for how Americans use and do business on the Internet, in a party-line vote that is sure to be challenged by the broadband industry.

The commission, following a contentious meeting, voted 3-2 to adopt its so-called net neutrality plan — a proposal that remained secret in the run-up to the final vote.

On its surface, the plan is aimed at barring service providers from creating paid “fast lanes” on the Internet, which consumer advocates and Internet companies worry would edge out cash-strapped startups and smaller Internet-based businesses. Chairman Tom Wheeler said it would ensure an “open, unfettered network.”

But the rules, more broadly, would put the Internet in the same regulatory camp as the telephone by classifying it like a public utility, meaning they’d have to act in the “public interest” when providing a mobile connection to your home or phone.

Republican Commissioner Ajit Pai, who delivered some of the most scathing criticism of the plan Thursday, warned the policy represents a “monumental shift” to “government control of the Internet.”

Further, he accused the FCC of bending to the will of Obama, who last fall came out in favor of such a sweeping regulatory plan.

Pai said the FCC was reversing course from past positions for one reason: “President Obama told us to do so.”

 

Possible Ebola Case in Washington, D.C. Suburb Arlington, Virginia

Posted by Kristinn Taylor on Thursday, February 26, 2015, 11:33 AM

Washington, D.C. media are reporting a patient with Ebola symptoms was hospitalized by crews wearing hazmat gear in the Washington, D.C. suburb of Arlington, Virginia.

The Washington Post quoted an Arlington County health official downplaying the incident:

“Arlington County fire officials have transported a patient to the hospital from a Clarendon apartment building using their Ebola protocols, though a department spokesman said it is “unlikely” that they are dealing with a real case of the deadly disease.

“Lt. Sarah-Maria Marchegiani said the patient had traveled recently to an Ebola affected country and exhibited symptoms consistent with the disease, so medics wearing protective clothing removed the person from the apartment at 1128 North Irving Street and notified Virginia Hospital Center to prepare for a possible Ebola patient. Marchegiani said, though, that the steps were taken out of an abundance of caution.

““While it’s unlikely that this is an Ebola case, the fire department and public health department and receiving hospital are taking all the precautions,” Marchegiani said.

Clarendon is a densely populated area with condos, apartments, single family homes, bars, night clubs, coffee shops, cafes, restaurants, schools and shopping. Its close proximity to Washington, D.C. makes it a haven for government workers and companies that do business with the federal government.

Arlington Patch describes the building the potential Ebola patient was removed from as a “luxury apartment building.”

“The patient lives at 1128 N. Irving Street in Clarendon, she(Marchegiani) said. The address is home to The Beacon Clarendon, a luxury apartment building.”

The Australian reported:

FORMER Queensland army reservist Ash Johnston has become the first Western fighter to be killed by Islamic State while fighting with Kurdish forces, after leaving the comforts of Canberra to help efforts to eradicate the terror group in Iraq.

Mr Johnston, 28, had spent seven years in the Army reserve but had only experienced peacekeeping missions prior to joining the Kurdish People’s Protection Units (YPG) in fighting the Islamic State, adopting the name Heval Bagok Sherhad.

The Defence Department confirmed the former reservist is believed to be dead.

“Defence is aware that a former Australian Army Reserve member is believed to have been killed in northern Iraq while allegedly fighting with Peshmerga forces against Daesh (Islamic State),” Defence said in a statement.

“Due to the provisions of the Privacy Act, Defence will not release further information about the former member’s military service or their personal details.”

ISIS linked Twitter accounts reported the news yesterday.

 

Figures. James Clapper Contradicts John Kerry Less Than 24 Hrs After His Testimony Before Congress

Posted by Jim Hoft on Thursday, February 26, 2015, 9:42 AM

Director of National Intelligence James Clapper completely contradicts John Kerry less than 24 hours after his testimony before Congress.

On Wednesday Obama Secretary of State John Kerry told Congress:

Our citizens, our world today is actually, despite ISIL, despite the visible killings that you see and how horrific they are, we are actually living in a period of less daily threat to Americans and to people in the world than normally— less deaths, less violent deaths today than through the last century.

On Thursday Obama Director of National Intelligence James Clapper told Congress:

“When the final accounting is done. 2014 will be the most lethal year in global terrorism in the 45 years such data has been compiled. About half of all attacks including fatalities in 2014 occurred in just three countries, Iraq, Pakistan and Afghanistan.”

Do these people have any idea what they’re doing?
