I Told You The FBI Is Rotten & Responsible For Terror Unleashed

Government, GUNS, Homeland Security, Political Correctness, Private Property, Terrorism

It now transpires that the “FBI [had] instructed local authorities not to release any information to the public regarding the Orlando shooting and the redacted recordings of the incoming, desperate, unrequited 911 calls. Orlando Sentinel:

The FBI has asked law enforcement agencies who responded to Pulse nightclub to withhold records from the public, according to officials.
A June 20 letter from the FBI, attached to the City or Orlando’s lawsuit over withholding 911 calls and other records from 25 media outlets including the Orlando Sentinel, was also sent to the Seminole County Sheriff’s Office with instructions pertaining to how they should respond to records requests.
The letter requests that agencies deny inquiries and directs departments to “immediately notify the FBI of any requests your agency received” so “the FBI can seek to prevent disclosure through appropriate channels, as necessary.”

The tone of last week’s column, “The Gun-Safety ‘Loophole’ is Actually a Government Loophole,” aka “Let The Gun Market Close Government Loopholes,” was exactly right. An excerpt:

It’s award time at the Department of Homeland Security. So fleeting has been the focus on the systemic, intractable failures of the DHS apparatus—that failed functionaries feel sufficiently at ease to move on to the business of backslapping and promotion.

But first, the latest outrage to emerge from Barack Hussein Obama’s Islamophilic Federal Bureau of Investigation is this: It transpires a friend of Orlando mass murderer Omar Saddiqui Mateen had done his duty and reported Mateen to the FBI.

Mohammed A. Malik had also worshiped at the Islamic Center of Fort Pierce and had become alarmed when Mateen openly professed to an infatuation with the videos of Yemeni Jihadi Anwar al-Awlaki. Not only did the FBI discount Malik’s report, but when Malik softened his assessment of the danger his friend posed to others—a natural human tendency—the FBI acted post haste on that assessment. In mitigation of the FBI’s decision to back-off Mateen, Director James Comey even cited Malik’s good reference.

Better that FBI agents watch reruns of CBS’s Criminal Minds, than follow FBI Standard Operating Procedure, dictated by the Obama administration. Taxpayers would be safer.

The mad farrago got more maddening when Attorney General Loretta Lynch (confirmed by Republican lickspittles) stepped up to assure the public that federal authorities were scouring their contacts with Mateen, and those around him, to ferret out whether they’d missed anything. When grilled about Mateen’s wife, a key figure in the investigation and a possible co-conspirator, Lynch replied that Noor Salman was … missing.

Missing, too, from the doctored transcripts of Mateen’s June 12, 911 call, released by the FBI and the Department of Justice, were the words “Allah,” “Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi” and “Islamic State,” to which Mateen alluded during the call.

Still worse: Since the focus is no longer on the “investigation” into two other tender, tormented souls, the Farooks, it’s time to bestow special commendation on those who botched, even thwarted, the probe into the butchers of San Bernardino.

Up for an award for her failings is Irene Martin. Reports the British Daily Mail: “An immigration official who stopped Homeland Security agents from arresting the alleged gun supplier of the San Bernardino terrorists the day after the attack, and then lied about it to department investigators, is to receive an award for her work.”

The agency that rewarded Martin had booted true hero Philip Haney. The soft-spoken, demure, forcibly retired employee of DHS has divulged that the Administration “nixed the probe into the Southern California jihadists,” and eliminated a program he, Haney, developed. That database would’ve helped connect certain networks, Tablighi Jamaat and the larger Deobandi movement, to domestic terrorism rising. Haney’s files were expunged and he subjected to an internal investigation for doing his duty to protect Americans.

Political correctness run amok is how pundits on Fox News have euphemized the FBI’s SOP under BHO.

Treason seems more like it.

Consider: You hire a private company to protect you, only to discover that, as part of the scheme to “protect” you, your guards undergo sensitivity training that desensitizes them to potential evildoers, thus giving the latter easy access to you and yours. Given that this strategy, if it can be so called, would undermine your life, and considering this company would be in violation of its contractual obligation to defend you—you’d first fire the firm. Next, if the negligence came at a cost; you’d sue.

You’d put this “business” and its “business plan” out of business. …

Who Really ‘Fully Liberated’ Fallujah?

Foreign Policy, Iraq, Media, Military

Iraqi forces have liberated Fallujah, media repeatedly report. The official account has it that the city has languished under ISIS since January 2014. The Iraqi government showed no particular interest in reclaiming it, until now.

Suddenly, the Iraqi military has had a burst of energy and sympathy toward those living under ISIS, and has renewed its offensive, this time with stunning success.

Puleez.

Each time crooked, stupid journos of Big Media provide news of the unexpected, recent liberation of Fallujah, the camera cuts to an American commander who provides a detailed run-down of the operation in progress.

I would not be surprised to discover American forces are doing all the work. The crooked journos are doing the camerawork, in other words, providing the optics of an Iraqi military success story.

Fems & ‘Girly Boys’ Are Really Feeling Hillary & Phony Pocahontas

Democrats, Feminism, Hillary Clinton, Left-Liberalism

“They stormed the stage together wearing similarly colored clothes — hues that almost perfectly matched the bold blue of Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign logo. With a ‘Stronger Together’ sign hanging in the background and a Katy Perry pop song blaring from the speakers, they cheered each other on like old pals, cracking jokes about Donald J. Trump and pointing with enthusiasm at a young supporter who waved a placard that read ‘Girl Power.’”

The storm-troopers in blue frocks cheered by New York Times’ AMY CHOZICK, in her overheated prose, are “Senator Elizabeth Warren of Massachusetts,” whom CHOZICK calls “a towering political figure among today’s liberal Democrats,” and who “brought her energy, folksy appeal and populist roar to a candidate not known for energizing crowds.”

Wow, these fem writers are really feeling Hillary and phony Pocahontas.

Hillary Clinton and the unhinged Elizabeth Warren are two resentful, domineering, power-hungry women, who’ve made it big in life through the use of state power. The human backdrop to the joint female force looks the same. Lots of aggravated-looking women and their domesticated, pasty faced boys looking frightened. The music: enfeebled squeaking courtesy of female pop “singer” Katy Perry.

Shudder.

The Last Refuge Of A Brussels Or British Scoundrel: Bureaucracy

Britain, Donald Trump, EU, Europe, Republicans, Ron Paul, The State

Republicans have The Romney Rule Or Rule 40(b) which they passed to thwart Ron Paul’s chances. The same GOP scoundrels still hope they can use sleight of hand to change the rules at Convention to defeat Donald Trump.

Brussels has a bureaucracy so formidable, it hopes to mire Briton Brexiters in rules and bamboozle the poor people who voted to leave, so that they’ll never notice something called “Article 50,” necessary for departure, is never triggered.

This is mandarin mambo-jumbo for pulling a fast one on the voters:.

Britain “may never” trigger the formal divorce process with the EU despite last week’s referendum in which the country voted to leave, EU diplomats said Sunday.

“My personal belief is they will never notify” the EU about their intention to leave, a senior EU diplomat said on condition of anonymity.

A state leaving the EU must formally notify the European Council of all 28 EU leaders under Article 50 of the 2007 Lisbon Treaty, setting the clock ticking on a two-year period for Britain to negotiate its divorce.

“We want London to trigger Article 50 now, to have clarity. I expect, as we can’t force them, for them to take their time,” the diplomat added.

“And I would not exclude, it’s my personal belief, that they may never do it.”

The official did not specify if he believed Britain would avoid it by holding a new referendum, or simply dragging out the process to extract a better divorce deal, but said all such decisions were up to London.
