Totally Impossible to Prevent Berlin Attack Was Preventable
Point 1: Germany knew this terrorist and had him under surveillance.
Point 2: He had been flagged for deportation for lying on asylum applications multiple times.
Point 3: After Toulouse, no one thought to install barriers BEFORE people died?
The problem here is not lack of intelligence nor means to prevent an attack. The problem here is never ending intelligence gathering without any action on said intelligence.
Amri was already known to German police for involvement in an ISIS cell, and had been under police surveillance. If Amri's involvement is confirmed, this would make the Berlin attack yet the most recent case of what I have termed "Known Wolf" terrorism and marking the eighth such incident this year.Update:
As regular PJ Media readers would note, I first identified and termed the ongoing trend of "Known Wolf" terrorism - individuals committing terrorist acts who were already known to law enforcement and national security authorities - back in October 2014.
This year alone I've reported on "Known Wolf" incidents in Columbus, Ohio; Orlando, Florida; Normandy, France; Ontario, Canada; Strasbourg, France; Roanoke, Virginia; and New York/New Jersey.
I would note four of those seven cases in 2016 were here in the United States.
Germany attempted to deport Christmas Market terrorist, but Tunisia refused to take him backhttps://t.co/rulQawGCpG— Howie Roark (@Toro520) December 21, 2016
This is what Gitmo is for, I mean ISIS has declared war on Germany. Yet the Germans treated him with kid gloves. Don't ask Tunisia, Drop the SOB off the coast and let him swim south.
We don't need to close Gitmo, we need to fill it and get on with the firing squads. Because politically correct kid gloves won't beat blood thirsty Islamic terrorists.

Houston Baghdadi We Have A Problem
Remember back when Adam Abed was causing panic in the Houston area and also Arizona with his plaster the world with ISIS stickers Jihad?
Well Adam has turned up again, some background. Adam is originally from the Chicago area. He left Illinois after a domestic dispute with his father.
After attracting the wrong kind of attention in the southwest it appears he returned home. Ony problem, a warrant for domestic violence from the old incident with his father and an OP were still in place. Plus Illinois has suspended his driver's license for failure to appear.
Arizona issued a new one, but Illinois does not recognize it any more than Arizona recognized the Illinois suspension.
WGN:Bummer, Adam was so, so entertaining.30-year-old Abdulrahman Abed was driving a rented white Mercedes SUV and his 16-year-old sister was a passenger when they were pulled over by an Illinois State Trooper in Oakbrook Terrace, Tuesday evening.
“I feel like I was abused and mistreated because of my scarf,” said the 16-year old, who did not want to be identified. “We parked in the parking lot when state police put on his lights and sirens and said you did not stop at the stop sign,” she said.
Her brother got out of the car. The traffic stop escalated. The trooper then asked her to get out. She says she refused because she was scared.
“I know my rights as a citizen. I said, 'What is the probable cause here?'”
She says she was physically removed from the vehicle and was taken to the hospital in police custody, panicked and bruised. She was cited for obstructing a peace officer.
Hat Tip: Liberty Speaks.
Update: He made bail. But I don't have the list of charges. Cause Liberty is slacking. But try here.

Shocking News! Mateen Lied to FBI But Not Charged
So Martha Stewart lies to the FBI, slammer. Hillary Clinton, nothing.
Terrorist Omar Mateen lied to the FBI, also he was not prosecuted.
A Sept. 27, 2013, email from former St. Lucie County sheriff’s office Maj. Michael Graves to former director of detention Patrick Tighe contained the following passage:Personally I think making lying to the FBI being a crime makes it harder to get information. Unless you can prove the intent to obstruct justice. So its a silly gotcha law they can whip out on any discrepancy. But some are allowed more discrepancies that others.FBI concluded a several month long thorough investigation of one of our G4S employees, Omar Mateen, who works at the courthouse. Last night, I spoke with FBI SAC Rand Glass who informed me they believe this individual has been making comments about his capabilities via his alleged middle eastern terrorist contacts as a form of tit for tat – who is the biggest and baddest rhetoric. Reportedly, Mateem [sic] told FBI he did this because a deputy who no longer works at the courthouse kept calling him a “towel head.” Mateen denied saying some of the things the FBI knows he did say. If he were smart he should not lie to them about any portion of the investigation (federal offense). They plan to speak to him again regarding his discrepancy.
Rand told me “We do NOT believe he is a terrorist.” Yesterday, the FBI spoke with him in person and reportedly Mateen became very upset that someone contacted the FBI. Regarding this demeanor, Rand said, “I don’t believe he will go postal or anything like that.”
I'm not sure that Mateen's attempt can be proven to obstruct justice at that time, he could have been hiding terrorist intentions though and many more have been prosecuted for less, in this case a charge might have prevented the worst terrorist attack in US soil since 9/11.

Effing Awesome Doubleclutch! NY Bomber Ahmad Khan Rahami Spent a Year Just Hanging Out in Quetta
Yes that's right Ahmad Khan Rahami spent a lot of time in Pakistan, just hanging around, traveling back and forth from the US, Afghanistan, Pakistan and by Pakistan I mean Taliban Controlled areas like Quetta.
New Jersey — Ahmad Khan Rahami, the man arrested for last weekend’s series of bombings in New York and New Jersey, traveled to Pakistan and Afghanistan several times without detection by the U.S. government, officials told The Daily Beast.Also F*ck me a running.
Rahami has made at least three and possibly four trips to Pakistan over the past 10 years, one official said. Investigators are now trying to determine where he traveled in the country and particularly if he spent time in the areas near the border with Afghanistan that have been the frequent target of U.S. drone strikes aimed at terrorist groups.
Rahami’s father also was in Pakistan as recently as July 2011, according to the family’s attorney, who informed a judge in a civil suit to which the elder Rahami was a plaintiff that he was not expected back in the country in time for a court proceeding the following month.
Update: Sigh.... Ahmad Khan Rahami's very own Muslim father turned him in for being a terrorist in 2014.
Two years before Ahmad Khan Rahami went on a bombing rampage in New York and New Jersey, his father told the police that the son was a terrorist, prompting a review by federal agents, according to two senior law enforcement officials.Yet another case where a possible terrorist was identified, written off and forgotten.
Separately on Tuesday, another official said that when Mr. Rahami was captured during a shootout with the police, he was carrying a notebook that contained writings sympathetic to jihadist causes.
In one section of the book, which was pierced by a bullethole and covered in blood, Mr. Rahami wrote of “killing the kuffar,” or unbeliever, according to the official, who agreed to speak about the investigation only on the condition of anonymity.
The father made the statement about his son being a terrorist to New Jersey police in 2014, when Mr. Rahami was arrested after a domestic dispute and accused of stabbing his brother.
The information was passed to the Joint Terrorism Task Force led by the Federal Bureau of Investigation in Newark. Officers opened what is known as an assessment, the most basic of F.B.I. investigations, and interviewed the father, who then recanted.

Bill Ayers: To Prevent Terrorism Ban Fire
According to Bill Ayers to prevent terrorism all you have to do is ban the weapons terrorists use:
So I guess that means Bill is suggesting we ban fire, which was one of his Weather Underground's favorite weapons.
New York City arson attacks
On February 21, 1970, at around 4:30 a.m., three gasoline-filled Molotov cocktails exploded in front of the home of New York Supreme Court Justice John M. Murtagh, who was presiding over the pretrial hearings of the so-called "Panther 21" members of the Black Panther Party over a plot to bomb New York landmarks and department stores. Justice Murtagh and his family were unharmed, but two panes of a front window were shattered, an overhanging wooden eave was scorched, and the paint on a car in the garage was charred. "Free the Panther 21" and "Viet Cong have won" were written in large red letters on the sidewalk in front of the judge's house at 529 W. 217th Street in the Inwood neighborhood of Manhattan. The judge's house had been under hourly police surveillance and an unidentified woman called the police a few minutes before the explosions to report several prowlers there, which resulted in a police car being sent immediately to the scene.
In the preceding hours, Molotov cocktails had been thrown at the second floor of Columbia University's International Law Library at 434 W. 116th Street and at a police car parked across the street from the Charles Street police station in the West Village in Manhattan, and at Army and Navy recruiting booths on Nostrand Avenue on the eastern fringe of the Brooklyn College campus in Brooklyn, causing no or minimal damage in incidents of unknown relation to that at Judge Murtagh's home.
According to the December 6, 1970 "New Morning—Changing Weather" Weather Underground communiqué signed by Bernardine Dohrn, and Cathy Wilkerson's 2007 memoir, the fire-bombing of Judge Murtagh's home, in solidarity with the Panther 21, was carried out by four members of the New York cell that was decimated two weeks later by the March 6, 1970 townhouse explosion.

FBI FUBARed Farook's Phone
Now Wants Apple to UNFUKIT
He screw the experts we're the effing FBI and we'll do it how we want to do it.
On Friday, we noted that one of the reasons that the FBI was unable to get access to the data on the remaining iPhone from Syed Farook was because after the shooting and after the phone was in the hands of the government, Farook's employer, the San Bernardino Health Department, initiated a password change on his iCloud account. That apparently messed stuff up, because without that, it would have been possible to force the phone to backup data to the associated iCloud account, where it would have been available to the FBI. But, after we published that article, a rather salient point came out: the Health Department only did this because the FBI asked it to do so.Um help, we broke it!
Two months later, you get a "terrorist attack" (or a workplace dispute that can be painted as a terrorist attack) and a sorta, kinda encrypted phone, and voila. Just what the intel community asked for. It would be crazy to suggest that any of this was done on purpose -- it's almost certainly a bit of convenience for the intel and law enforcement communities. But the fact that the FBI directed the Health Department to change the password, and that's part of the reason they're now locked out, really raises some questions about what the FBI's priorities were here. It also raises a separate question of whether or not companies should be forced to hack their own system in cases where the FBI's own bungling was responsible for the loss of information. But, really, that's a minor point, given that the DOJ wants that power even in cases where the FBI didn't mess things up itself.
Sandcrawler PSA: Its one thing to, you know, f*ck something, but as a generate rule unf*cking is the hard part.
Obama To Try to Close GITMO Again
Its against the law currently to bring Prisoners of War from GITMO to the US. Lest they gain constitutional rights.
Which is a huge flaw in our thinking. So long as al-Qaeda ISIS, al-Shabaab and other groups have declared war against his, until the end of this state of hostility we may hold them. No matter where we hold them they are Prisoners of War, not criminals.
So while I would be for say moving them to someplace much colder, we don't have to move them at all.
And given Obama's record on GITMO detainees, um yea.
All it really takes to solve the problem are three officers and a firing squad, but the days of American common sense on these matters has long past.

Sandcrawler PSA: Columbus Wasn't English
Especially on Twitter.
There are also creative insults to the 15th's century's Neil Armstrong.
Because I'm sure one of these days some liberal tard will find a way to blame the moon landings on Anglo-American, mono-cultural viewpoints.
You'll note that the images above also describe Columbus and he is often depicted as Anglo or English although he sailed for Spain and was Italian.
Remember Spain? The other Imperialist?
Today's hatred of Columbus is centered around white hate and by that I mean hatred of whites or Anglos, some of it liberal self hatred some not. . But when you mention Spanish imperialism your liberal friends get upset because the focus of the Kracker Haters is on English Imperialism.
So we want to host a white guilt free Columbus day, because when the English arrived the Spanish had pretty much cleared the place out for us save for a few stragglers.
I also carry some of those stragglers blood, and given that we have all this cool civilized stuff I'm thankful for Columbus and for the Europeans and for the Native Americans and immigrants that made something better.
Because in the end we all got a new start and together created the New World we are all blessed to live in now.
For those of you still stuck in the Old World, sucks to be you.

Zionist Conspiracy! Predictions! Results! Jawa Report!
Sometimes when you are fishing for bass, you catch a carp or a just a lit of tiny annoying bluegill.
Times of Israel:
Joshua Ryne Goldberg faces 20 years in jail; same man reported to have posted foul, hoax blog on Times of Israel in April.The criminal complaint is here(pdf).
The FBI arrested a 20-year-old American Jewish man for posing as an Islamic State extremist, calling for terrorist attacks, claiming to be planning attacks in Australia and the United States, and providing information on bomb construction to a second party. According to the Sydney Morning Herald, the same man, who it named as Florida resident Joshua Ryne Goldberg, also posed as a respected Australian lawyer in April to maliciously post a racist blog post on The Times of Israel.
So it gets even weirder.
“The Australi Witness persona fooled members of the international intelligence community as well as journalists,” the Herald report said, “with well-known analyst Rita Katz of SITE Intelligence Group saying the ‘IS supporter’ held a ‘prestige’ position in online jihadi circles and was ‘part of the hard core of a group of individuals who constantly look for targets for other people to attack.'”Mkayyy....
US officials told the Herald that Goldberg had admitted to distributing information on bomb-making and “further admitted that he believed the information would create a genuine bomb.
“An affidavit sworn at the time of the arrest says that, between August 19 and August 28, Mr Goldberg ‘distributed information pertaining to the manufacturing of explosives, destructive devices, or weapons of mass destruction in furtherance of an activity that constitutes a Federal crime of violence,'” the Herald reported.
Goldberg claimed, however, that he did not intend for an attack to take place. He said he wanted to inform police of the plan ahead of time in order to get credit for stopping an attack. He also said he thought the bomb-maker may kill himself in the process and at another point claimed that he did not expect anyone to actually build the bomb as “these guys are pussy keyboard warriors.”So I suppose if you're going to help the FBI the first step might be letting them know you're helping and to actually help.
Anyway You're Truly dubbed Australi Witness as Stands Under Anvil on June 15th.
Jawa Report Delcares Australi Witness' Indian Name Stands Under Anvil
Jawa name, Indian name. Its all the same.An Australian Twitter user and Islamic State supporter who appeared to encourage the terrorist attack on an anti-Islamic cartoon event in the US says his movement is "winning the minds of the young generation".

But the punchline: since December 2007, according to the Household Survey, only 790,000 native born American jobs have been added. Contrast that with the 2.1 million foreign-born Americans who have found a job over the same time period...And remember there are millions of jobs off the books so to speak. A cash and black economy that isn't being counted at all.

"Canteen Boy" and the Super Gays
**Bumped .... because .... I can**
Hello people, my name is Rusty Shackleford and I blog here occasionally.
So the Boy Scouts of America has decided that it's okay for gay men to go camping with your supple and lithe 15 year old sons. What could possibly go wrong?
As a long time supporter of the Boy Scouts I'm a bit confused by the reasoning. I think it goes something like: discrimination is bad, mmmkay, and gays should be treated like every one else.
Okay, sure, that's reasonable. Let's treat them like every one else.
But what you are asking is to treat them differently. In fact, you are asking us to believe a lie.
There are many kinds of lies out there. One of those lies is that gay men are more prone to pedophilia then straight men. I know of no statistical or anecdotal evidence for this. It's a disgusting stereotype.
But there is strong evidence that many men, indeed perhaps most men, are attracted to people who may be much younger than them. I'm not talking about pedophilia here, just the normal -- and I do intentionally mean normal -- male attraction to youth.
This is an uncomfortable fact to most us. The fact that many men are attracted to people who are say, 16 or 17 years old, is very uncomfortable to think about. It becomes more uncomfortable for us the younger that gets. As we all know, some 14 year olds are fully developed. This isn't something we like to think about. It is something polite society almost never talks about.
As a father of both teenage girls and boys it makes me uncomfortable. I handle the discomfort with many guns and plenty of ammunition. I don't like to think about it. I don't like to talk about it.
But comfortable or not, these facts remain: that men have always been and will always be attracted to youth.
Which is why if Howie suggested that he take your teenage daughters camping you'd react the same way I would: by showing him your Remington 870 and politely showing him the door.
And it's not just because Howie is a perv. It's because Howie is a man.
Denying Howie his weekend with your daughters isn't an unstated accusation that he is worse than the average man, it is only an admission that he is no better than the average man.
And this is precisely the problem I have with gay Scout leaders.
You are asking me to believe that gay men are better than straight men. That gay men, as a group, have conquered the unfortunate yet natural attraction men have to teenagers. That gay men, as a group, are in fact supernatural. They, and they alone, have overcome male nature.
We do not allow grown men to take our teenage daughters camping even when we add the kinds of safeguards that the Boy Scouts have added in recent years in order to prevent abuse. Safeguards such as men and boys must sleep in separate tents, or that there must be at least two adults present with a Scout, etc, etc.
The fact remains that even with these safeguards it still would make me uncomfortable for an adult male to be camping with my teenage daughters in a supervisory capacity. I simply wouldn't allow it. Because men are fickle creatures. We are tempted. We are weak.
But not gay men, right? Gay men are so much better than the rest of us that they would not be tempted. Or, if tempted, they are not so weak as the rest of mankind. They can resist. They will not look upon your teenage boys with any amount of lust. They, and they alone, have overcome! Hallelujah, thank the Lord, they have overcome!
It's almost as if you believe them to be die Herrenrass, the Master Race.
And if that is the case, perhaps we should put them in charge of ... everything.
Having overcome the human condition, I'm sure they could easily solve all the world's ills. Just think, with these superior beings in charge hunger would be a thing of the past. War something we read about only in books.
Those who believe gay men have overcome the human condition are not asking the rest of us to accept gay Scoutmasters because they believe in equality.
They are asking us to accept gay Scoutmasters for the opposite reason: gays are not equal to straights, they are better than us.
Equality: I do not think that word means what you think it means.
Here's the Canteen Boy sketch. Sure, Canteen Boy is supposed to be "27 years old", but yeah, right, whatever. I actually think it's funny. Tragedy and comedy are kind of two sides to the same coin. And make no mistake, this is exactly what the BSA has voted for. Comedy gold when it's Alec Baldwin coming on to Adam Sandler. Tragic when he's coming on to your 16 year old son.
So long BSA, and thanks for all the fish!
UPDATE: For those of you who may be slow, or maybe you just never thought of the difference because, let's face it, polite society demands (demands!) that we don't think about unpleasant things (let alone two or three unpleasant things), I'm going to clarify a point some of the commenters don't seem to get.
Namely this: that some people use the word "molest" or "molestation" to describe all sorts of actions, but which really cover three separate bad things.
The first, is pedophelic child molestation. You know what that means. This is so unpleasant that even I, your host down this rabbit hole of perfidy, don't really want to describe it.
The second is statutory child molestation. This is when an legal adult makes unwanted advances, touching, etc. of a legal minor (eg, 21 year old perpetrator and 15 year old victim). I use the term statutory here because when the same thing happens to an adult victim we call it sexual assault and/or rape.
The third is statutory rape (or as Nancy Grace calls it, child molestation). This is when the sexual advances of an adult towards a teenager is consented to, even though one of the parties in the relationship is not legally allowed to consent.
All three of these things are morally wrong. But their degree or level of wrongness goes from worst case to very bad to bad in the order listed above.
Also, as I pointed out I think quite clearly, I expressly said that gays are no more likely to be sexual predators or perverts than straights. But, and this is kind of the whole point, they are no less likely either.
So, contemplate those points before you start typing something stupid.
As to the point about "I need statistics" well, I just don't know what to say with that. As a methodology, statistics just can't answer all questions of fact. As an epistemology it can never answer all questions of truth. There are several reasons for this, but first and foremost is simply lack of data.
But as more than a few scientists have won Nobel Prizes for thought experiments (eg, Einstein, Friedman) let me pose the following thought experiment to you:
You have a daughter. She goes to high school. The high school announces that the locker rooms and showers are going to be co-ed. But don't worry, they have a bunch of rules that make it impossible (impossible!) for inappropriate behavior.
School Board, meet my Remington 870.
Or, maybe you have a more enlightened reaction. You pull your kids from school.
Either way, you don't let it happen not only because you know rules cannot always be enforced (even well thought out, good rules). No, what really pisses you off is the notion of all those guys oggling your daughter.
It's. Just. Creepy.
And that might just be a social constructed thing. We learn that nudity is sexual or something. In Sweden they do it all the time. I don't think so, but whatever.
Even if it is something American society fostered upon us, so what? If we want to live in society, there are some social norms that cannot be broken. And there are social, and legal, consequences for violating some of those norms.
Also, some of those legal consequences are there to protect the violator of the norms as much as they are about protecting society.
You see, once the law no longer protects my children then it's up to me to do so.
And I have guns.
Laws protecting certain social norms are there to protect you from me just as much as they are to protect society.

Twit Goes to Jail
A St. Louis man was charged Thursday with making threats against police and the St. Louis City Justice Center on Twitter.There had been speculation about the threat running on Gawker.
Image Credit KSDK
Jason Valentine, 35, faces 10 felony counts of making a terrorist threat, the St. Louis Circuit Attorney's office said Thursday.
Valentine is being held on a $100,000 cash-only bail, according to the St. Louis Post-Dispatch, which did not specify which jail. It wasn't clear from online court records whether he has an attorney or when his first court appearance would be.
Valentine allegedly tweeted about "Kill a pig Night" throughout December, the probable cause statement said, and that he threatened an explosion at the Justice Center on Wednesday.
"St. Louis City Justice Center Mysteriously Exploded 12/31/2014," one tweet read, according to the statement. Another said, "New Years Eve Massacre Kill A Pig Night."
According to a report from DNAinfo's Murray Weiss, the NYPD is investigating social media death threats against cops from alleged gang members who are apparently promising to turn tonight's New Year's Eve celebrations into "Kill a Pig Night." But who are these violent tweeters? Do they exist at all?Here is an image of one of the tweets.
The evidence as presented in Weiss's article points not to an orchestrated, gang-related effort to kill cops tonight, but the work of a single obsessive Instagram user and the inflammatory writings of a right-wing blogger based in St. Louis, Missouri.
Weiss's law enforcement sources report that the threats have "primarily come in tweets baring a host of vicious anti-NYPD hash tags including #@deadcopseveryday, #onlydeadcops, #wingsonpigs and #laughatyourdeaths." (#@deadcopseveryday likely contains a typo, as Twitter doesn't allow the @ symbol to be used in hashtags.) However, aside from
#wingsonpigs—a slogan that Ismaaiyl Brinsley used on Instagram before he murdered two NYPD officers earlier this month—a search for tweets that were posted before the DNAinfo article was published and contain the cited hashtags turns up only one result: an unrelated tweet in support of police from August.
It's possible that the alleged threats came from private accounts, or that Twitter has already suspended the users responsible. A Twitter spokesperson wrote via email that the company "will remove reported content that violates our rules, which prohibit direct, specific threats of violence against others," but did not specifically address the alleged threats.

Question: How Many Who Lied to Furguson Grand Jury Will Be Prosecuted for Perury?
Of course at least two who told the truth to the grand jury have been murdered. The liars and celebrated and their lies repeated at protests.
The grand jury in the case of Michael Brown's shooting didn't just face an onslaught of witnesses with conflicting memories of what happened the day white police officer Darren Wilson killed Brown, an unarmed black teenager. It also heard from witnesses who couldn't be believed at all.My guess is none will be prosecuted.
Some admitted lying. Others changed their stories under questioning. Prosecutors were so skeptical of one woman's account that they asked whether she might have dreamed about seeing the confrontation in Ferguson, Missouri, on August 9./

"Gentle Giants" Beat Bosnian Immigrant to Death With Hammers
They began beating his car with hammers; when he exited the vehicle, they beat him to death with hammers.Contrary to reports the press didn't notice, actually they did.
And obviously there's no national media coverage of the gentle giants' peaceful protest.
See, all the protesters in Ferguson are peaceful.
Two juveniles are in custody Sunday, suspected in the death of a man beaten with hammers on a St. Louis street.
The victim, 32-year-old Zemir Begic, suffered injuries to his head, abdomen, face and mouth, according to police.
...A motive for the attack was not immediately clear.
The wife of a Bosnian man who was brutally beaten to death Sunday says that her husband's final act was to protect her from her attackers.Funeral arrangements are pending and you can donate to the Begic family here.
"The last thing he did before he actually died was pull me out of the way and put himself in front of me, basically giving up his life for me," Mujkanovic told the station.
OMG! Who Could be Behind This?!?!
Adam's last misdemeanor....
Heh.... I wondered why he was trolling the FBI over the weekend.
Oh by the way, trolling the FBI over the weekend.
The Reporters, sigh, will get back to us when they discover who's really behind this.

Stupid Voters Fire Gruber
State Auditor Beth Wood, a Democrat, decided to terminate Gruber’s $200,000 contract late last week, according to a timeline of work done for North Carolina by the health economics professor at Massachusetts Institute of Technology.Hey Gruber would you like a little Ketchup on that crow?
“Gruber’s comment that it was all right to mislead people to get a desired outcome that he favored led our auditors to determine he had at least the appearance of an independence impairment,” Bill Holmes, a spokesman for the auditor’s office, told WRAL-TV.
...Gruber’s comments also led to the termination of his $400,000 contract with the state of Vermont. He was paid $160,000 before Gov. Peter Shumlin, a Democrat, decided to end the contract.

Most Likely Drunken Idiot Jailed For Being Drunken Idiot
ennessee man was in custody on Thursday and facing criminal charges after claiming to be a member of ISIS and threatening to behead his neighbors and burn down their homes, police said.OMG! ISSI is lose in Tennessee too!
Tullahoma Police Chief Paul Blackwell said the man – Terry Wayne McCullough, 59 – is a known troublemaker but that the threats had to be treated seriously.
“We’ve dealt with him quite a few times over the years,” Blackwell said. “Most of the issues we’ve had to deal with him have been minor, misdemeanor charges.”
McCullough is in the Coffee County Jail on $10,000 bond and charged with criminal conspiracy. He is due in court Oct. 23.
Blackwell said that when McCullough “described ISIS, he was calling it ISSI.”
Tullahoma Police Officer James Tate, who arrested McCullough on Sunday, wrote in his report that the man admitted making threats and said he would carry them out and said that his next target was Nashville...
Can we panic yet? I've been wanting to panic all week.

Goatly Gets Competition or ISIS New Emir in Houston Sings Badly Very Very Badly (update :Vegas Baby!)
When it gets, you know tedious, skip ahead to around 6:00 where
even the cat protests, Meow = Dude! STFU!
The last time we spoke of this dude on the blog we linked a snopes article calling #houstonbahgdadi a hoax, or some sort of costume freak.
I think the term freak fits, but if its a hoax is the sort of hoax that is so dedicated it makes you question the sanity of said hoaxperson.
Some sources are telling me that not only is it not a hoax, the dude is seriously off his rocker.
It wouldn't be the first time the mentally challenged got caught up in the allure of the online Jihad, See Emerson Begolly aka Goatly. He is known to suffer from the Asperger's form of autism, Carlos Almonte the "Kill all Juice" guy suffers from just plain stupid.
So #Houstonbaghdadi has declared himself ISIS' Emir in Houston and he's been tossed out of every mosque he visits. And he spends endless hours singing Nasheeds to himself in front of the mirror. Um, yeah.
I know its surreal but we're going to go ahead and place him in the That Boy Ain't Right column for now. Lets hope his fascination with ISIS remains confined to Nasheeds in front of the mirror.
Updated 10/07/2014. It appears Mr. Bahgdadi has taken his show on the road, and who needs Dawa more than the filthy infidels of Sin City.

Sandcrawler PSA: Stop Bacon Abuse!
One whiny Muslima in Vermont complains that seeing the word Bacon offends here delicate sensitivities.
In Winooski, Vermont, city officials like to involve local businesses in its efforts to keep flower beds healthy and thriving in town.Horrid!
The deal is that if shops help with gardening, they can post advertisements for their services in those same spots, noted WPTZ-TV in Burlington.
So after Sneakers Bistro & Cafe kicked in for “Operation Bloom” at the bottom of the Winooski Circle, the restaurant put a bright yellow sign on a lamp post telling drivers to “Yield for Bacon” at Sneakers.
Soon a discussion about diversity was underway on the Winooski Front Porch Forum, highlighted by one woman who wrote that the sign was insensitive to those who don’t consume pork — and as a Muslim she’s offended by it, WPTZ reported.
Once the bistro owners found out about the complaint, they told the station they reached out to the woman and then took the sign down.
Woman named CRISPI uses BACON to try and burn down ex-boyfriend's home.America, I just don't know her anymore.

Good News! Obama Beats Out Jimmah For Worst President Since WWII
I mean good news if you're Putin or al-Qaeda or Saudi Arabia. Bad news for the rest of us. I get that Obama is a lefty, but it's the giant sucking sound that emanates from the White House that makes it even worse.
Even the lefties are pretty sure he sucks now.
Congratulations, as you so often point out polls and elections matter, YOU WON AGAIN.
Shoot me now!
