SECOND ISLAMIST IDENTIFIED …
The authorities have identified the second Garland, Texas
gunman radical Islamist who opened fire at the draw ‘Muhammad Art & Cartoon Contest’ as 34 year old Nadir Soofi. He and his fellow jihadist, Elton Simpson, who were roommates and lived in Phoenix, AZ attacked the pro-free speech event and were shot dead by Garland police. Simpson was reportedly known to the FBI for his possible terrorist ties; however, Soofi appears not to have been. Imagine that, you are the roommate of a supposed terrorist and no one thinks to look at his actions. Really? One thing is for certain, we will no longer have to worry about either one of them now.
The two men attended the Islamic Center of North Phoenix together.
Authorities in Texas have identified Nadir Soofi as the second gunman who opened fire on a “Draw Muhammad” art contest in a Dallas suburb on Sunday night.
Soofi, authorities say, shared an apartment in Phoenix with Elton Simpson, who was convicted of lying to federal authorities in 2011 and was considered a terrorist suspect. The two men attended the Islamic Center of North Phoenix together.
Just minutes before Soofi and Simpson launched their attack at a community center in Garland, Texas, the two men posted messages on social media accounts with the hashtag “#TexasAttack.” Groups such as ISIS picked up on the hashtag and posted messages of support for the two gunmen, who were then killed by a police officer outside the building.
He may have been an ISIS supporter
While U.S. authorities investigate whether Sunday’s shooting has any link to international terrorism, ISIS claimed responsibility for the attack. In a radio broadcast, the terror group referred to Simpson and Soofi as two of its “soldiers” and and threatened more attacks.
Moments before the shootout, Simpson posted an ominous tweet with the hashtag #texasattack: “May Allah accept us as mujahideen.”
The tweet also said Simpson and his fellow attacker had pledged allegiance to “Amirul Mu’mineen,” which means “the leader of the faithful.” CNN terrorism analyst Paul Cruickshank said that probably refers to ISIS leader Abu Bakr al Baghdadi.
Earlier, Simpson had asked his readers on Twitter to follow an ISIS propagandist.
After the shooting, the same propagandist tweeted: “Allahu Akbar!!!! 2 of our brothers just opened fire.”
He died near where he was born
Soofi was born in Garland and spent the first three years of his life there, his mother said, according to The Dallas Morning News.
“He was raised in a normal American fashion,” Sharon Soofi said. “Yes, he was very politically involved with the Middle East. Just aware of what’s going on. I don’t know if something snapped or if Elton Simpson was just working on him.”
He left behind an 8-year-old son
Sharon Soofi also said her son had an 8-year-old boy whom he adored.
“He put his son above everything,” she said. “The hard thing to comprehend is why he would do this and leave an 8-year-old son behind.”
He went to a prestigious private school
25 Year Old NYPD Officer Brian Moore Died Monday After Being Shot in the Head by Career Criminal Demetrius Blackwell
DO POLICE OFFICER’S LIVES MATTER?
Sadly, 25 year old New York City police officer Moore has died after from his injuries after being shot in the head while on duty Saturday night in Queens, NY. Officer Moore was removed from life support at 11:15 AM on Monday. Brian Moore was shot in the face around 6:15 PM when Moore and his partner, Officer Erik Jansen, approached a “person of interest” near the intersection of 212th Street and 104th Road in the Queens Village neighborhood. Before the officers could react to an individual who had a gun in his waist, he fired upon the officers. Demetrius Blackwell was later arrested in connection with the shooting. According to the New York Post, Blackwell has a record of 10 arrests, including five on charges of robbery, criminal possession of a weapon and grand larceny.
What would the White House and media response have been have the rolls been reversed?
NYPD Officer Brian Moore, RIP
An NYPD officer who was shot in the head while sitting in an unmarked car in Queens Saturday has died from his injuries.
Brian Moore, 25, died Monday, the NYPD confirmed.
“Condolences to the family of PO Brian Moore who lost his life today. RIP to a true hero. We will never forget. #Hero,” the NYPD 104th Precinct tweeted Monday afternoon.
“The shooting of Officer Brian Moore over the weekend was a deplorable act of violence that has robbed New York of one of its finest,” New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo said in a statement Monday. “As a member of the NYPD, Officer Moore put the safety of his fellow New Yorkers before his own, and we will remember his service with gratitude and pride. I join with all New Yorkers in mourning his passing and send my deepest condolences to his friends and family.”
Moore underwent surgery for what court papers described as “severe injuries to his skull and brain” and had been in a coma.
Question, do police lives matter? As Barack Obama, black activists, black politicians, liberal politicians and the liberal MSM rail against police attacks and racial bias upon blacks, one has to ask where is the outrage from these folks when police officers are gunned down in the line of duty by dirt-bag thugs? Where are the protests for Brian Moore? Thanks to the racial divide caused by irresponsible leaders and an all too willing lap-dog media to create a narative that does not exists, they have put a target and a bulls-eye on police officers. I hope you are happy. We have lost a good man in Brian Moore at the hand of a career criminal who should have been locked away because he served no functional purpose to society.
I am still waiting for the outrage from Obama, Holder, Sharpton and all the usual suspects.
One of my childhood crushes has passed away, Rest in Peace Yeoman Janice Rand …
Actress Grace Lee Whitney, better known as Yeoman Janice Rand of Star Trek fame, has passed away at the age of 85. She died at her home on May 1st in Coarsegold, California. Whitney played the short skirted Star Trek officer on the original Star Trek, who had a crush on James T. Kirk; however, was unceremoniously let go after only 8 episodes. She was born Mary Ann Chase in Ann Arbor, Michigan in 1930. She was adopted by the Whitney family, and as a teenager, began her career in entertainment as a singer and dancer. Whitney was a recovering alcoholic and drug addict and had reportedly spent the last 35 years of her life helping others with addiction problems, including volunteering at women’s correctional facilities.
April 1, 1930 – May 1, 2015, Rest in Peace
Later, Grace Lee Whitney returned for the movie franchise starting with 1979’s “Star Trek: The Motion Picture,” with a promotion to chief petty officer, then in “Star Trek III: The Search for Spock,” “Star Trek IV: The Voyage Home” and she was finally promoted to lieutenant in 1991’s “Star Trek VI: The Undiscovered Country.”
An actress who appeared in just eight episodes of the original “Star Trek” — but made harrowing allegations in a memoir of sexual assault during her tenure — has died at 85.
Grace Lee Whitney — better known as Captain Kirk’s sometime love interest, Yeoman Janice Rand — died of natural causes at her home in California, her son Jonathan Dweck told the Associated Press.
“Over time, she became appreciative of her short time on ‘Star Trek’ because she developed meaningful relationships with the fans, Leonard Nimoy and other cast members,” Dweck said.
In a 1998 book, Whitney said she had high hopes for the show. Born Mary Ann Chase in Ann Arbor, Mich., in 1930, as NBC reported, she was raised by adoptive parents and in the middle of a divorce when she landed her part on a show she called her “Higher Power.”
Still, Whitney continued to appear on television, and returned as Rand in the first “Star Trek” film, later reprising her role in some of the sequels and TV series. She cited Nimoy as a crucial force in helping restart her career.
“The one person who really reached out to me after I was written out of ‘Star Trek’ was Leonard Nimoy,” she wrote. ” He was the only one who really knew how much I was hurting.”
Star Trek Season 1 – Episode 12, Miri
In her later years, Whitney worked as an advocate for people struggling with substance abuse. She credited her own recovery in some part to the Star Trek fans who supported her:
“When I told the fans I was an alcoholic, they all applauded. When I told them I had given myself to a higher power, they cheered again,” Ms. Whitney told The Bee’s Rick Bentley in 2013. “I’m in a great place because I’ve gone full circle.
Outside of Star Trek, the Ann Arbor, MI. native was in the Broadway musical Top Banana, and appeared in the 1954 movie version of the show. Her TV career included roles on The Life and Legend of Wyatt Earp, The Real McCoys, The Outer Limits, Batman, and Bewitched. She also served as the inspiration for the Chicken of the Sea mermaid.
Remains Found of 22 Year Old Chelsea Bruck Who Went Missing after Attending a Halloween Party on 10/26/14 in Newport, MI
The remains have been found of 22 year old Chelsea Bruck in Monroe County’s Ash Township, Michigan. Bruck’s skeletal remains were discovered Friday afternoon in dense woods near Interstate 275. The Wayne County Medical Examiner positively identified the baked body found as Bruck on Saturday. Chelsea Bruck went missing on 10/26/14 after attending a Halloween party in Frenchtown Township, Michigan. Previously, Bruck’s handmade Poison Ivy Halloween costume had been found on April 5 at a vacant industrial site in Flat Rock.
Monroe County Sheriff Dale Malone stated at a news conference, “Our thoughts and prayers are with the Bruck family.” He also said, “evidence at the scene indicated it was a homicide. In all likelihood, the crime was committed at or near where the body was located.”
The missing persons case now becomes a homicide case. Sheriff Malone believes that the person who dumped her body at this location was familiar with the area and the railroad tracks.
A body discovered Friday afternoon in dense woods near Interstate 275 in Monroe County has been identified as Chelsea Bruck, who has been missing since October.
Wayne County Medical Examiner spokesman Ryan Bridges said the body was positively identified as Bruck, 22, on Saturday.
“It’s been ID’d through dental records,” said Bridges.
Monroe County Sheriff Press Conference – Chelsea Bruck investigation
Bruck’s body was found at 2 p.m. in a wooded parcel by a railroad track near Carleton, said Heath Velliquette, chief deputy of the Monroe County Sheriff’s Office .
A property owner was using a bulldozer to clear heavy brush on his land when the machine malfunctioned, said Velliquette.
While waiting to resume work with the heavy machinery, the property owner stumbled upon the body, said the sheriff’s office.
The decomposed body appeared to be in the woods for “months,” said Velliquette.
He declined to say whether the body was buried in any way.
No weapon was discovered at the site, he said.
Because of the long period the body was in the woods, the sheriff’s office used an anthropologist to help determine the identity, he said.
Body found in Ash Twp. confirmed as Chelsea Bruck’s

7.8 Magnitude Earthquake Devastates Nepal … Killing More than 1,000 People (Update: More Than 1,900 Killed in Quake)(Update: Death Toll More Than 3,700)(Update: Nepal Death Toll at 5,045 Deaths)
7.8 Magnitude Earthquake Hits Nepal …
A 7.8 magnitude earthquake has stuck Nepal in an area between the capital, Kathmandu, and the city of Pokhara. The government is reporting that nearly 700 people have died from the massive earthquake; however, the numbers are sadly expected top rise. The earthquake is the worst one in Nepal in 81 years as it toppling a 19th-century tower in the capital Kathmandu and touching off a deadly avalanche on Mount Everest.
Nearly 1,000 are known to have died in a powerful earthquake in Nepal, with many more feared trapped under rubble, officials say.
The 7.8 magnitude quake struck an area between the capital, Kathmandu, and the city of Pokhara, the US Geological Survey said.
Tremors were felt across the region, with further loss of life in India, Bangladesh, Tibet and on Mount Everest.
The government has declared a state of emergency in the affected areas.
A national police spokesman told the BBC that 970 people had died in the quake, and that more than 1,700 had been injured. At least 539 people were killed in the Kathmandu valley, he added.
Nepali Information Minister Minendra Rijal said there had been “massive damage” at the epicentre, from where little information is emerging.
A massive earthquake near the capital of Nepal killed at least 1,457 people today as it collapsed temples and triggered an avalanche on Mt. Everest.
The magnitude-7.8 quake hit about 50 miles northwest of Kathmandu just before noon local time, according to the U.S. Geological Survey. The death toll, estimated by the Nepalese Army, was expected to rise, said officials.
Another 1,055 were injured, said the country’s finance minister, Ram Sharan Mahat. It’s the worst earthquake in Nepal in over 80 years, according to the Associated Press.
A powerful earthquake struck Nepal and sent tremors through northern India on Saturday, killing more than 1,000 people, toppling a 19th-century tower in the capital Kathmandu and touching off a deadly avalanche on Mount Everest.
There were reports of devastation in outlying, isolated mountainous areas after the midday quake of magnitude 7.9, Nepal’s worst in 81 years, centered 50 miles (80 km) east of the second city, Pokhara.
As fears grew of a humanitarian disaster in the impoverished Himalayan nation of 28 million, an overwhelmed government appealed for foreign help. India was first to respond by sending in military aircraft with medical equipment and relief teams.
A police official said the death toll in Nepal alone had reached 1,130, more than half of them in the Kathmandu Valley. A further 36 fatalities were reported in northern India, 12 in Chinese Tibet and four in Bangladesh.
A powerful earthquake in Nepal sparked a deadly avalanche on Mount Everest on Saturday, killing at least eight people at the base camp.
The base camp is where journalists, climbers and their families gather and get news to the world about developments at Everest, the world’s highest mountain above sea level.
At least one team of climbers on Everest appears to be safe after a few hours of anguish in which the expedition leader asked for prayers on social media in the wake of the massive earthquake in Nepal.
UPDATE IV: The Guardian – Nepal earthquake: death toll exceeds a thousand – live updates.
- More than 1,000 people have been reported dead after a huge 7.9 magnitude earthquake hit Nepal
- The country’s deputy prime minister, Bamdev Gautam, has declared a state of emergency and appealed for humanitarian assistance across the region.
- 18 climbers were found dead on Mount Everest after the tremor triggered an avalanche. Many more are trapped.
- The total death toll has risen quickly throughout the day, and is now thought to include at least 634 in the Kathmandu Valley and 300 more in the capital.
- 36 people have also been reported dead India, 12 in China, four in Bangladesh and six in Tibet.
- The quake caused dozens of buildings in Kathmandu to collapse, including the historic Dharahara Tower.
At nightfall, Nepal’s capital became a tent city, as thousands of residents displaced by Saturday’s devastating earthquake stayed in their dark gardens and out on the cracked streets and lanes, afraid to go back inside because of waves of aftershocks, including a powerful jolt Sunday that the U.S. Geological Survey said measured 6.7 magnitude and which sent people fleeing for open ground and safety.
It had been a pleasant Saturday morning, with families just sitting down to lunch and tourists thronging to Kathmandu’s Durbar Square when the temblor hit, a horrible rocking motion that seemed to go on without end. The quake was ultimately felt across South Asia — in Lahore, in New Delhi, in Dhaka. Snow avalanched down Mount Everest. Buildings fell, mud-joined huts collapsed. By the end of the night, more than 1,900 lay dead, Nepalese officials said, with countless more injured.
Rescue workers raced to reach remote rural villages in Nepal Monday as the official death toll from a devastating earthquake rose past 3,700 and threatened to climb.
Nepal police said in a statement Monday that the country’s death toll had risen to 3,617 people. That number does not include the 18 people confirmed dead in an avalanche that swept through the Mount Everest base camp in the wake of the magnitude-7.8 earthquake. Another 61 people were killed in neighboring India. China reported that 20 people had died in Tibet.
Reports received so far by the government and aid groups suggest that many communities perched on mountainsides are devastated or struggling to cope. Udav Prashad Timalsina, the top official for the Gorkha district, near the epicenter of Saturday’s quake, said he was in desperate need of help.
“There are people who are not getting food and shelter. I’ve had reports of villages where 70 percent of the houses have been destroyed,” he said.
The death toll in Nepal from the earthquake that struck two days ago has risen to 3,726, Nepalese police spokesman Kamal Singh Bam said Monday.
As the death toll from Nepal’s worst earthquake in decades surged past 3,400 on Monday, big questions remained about the scale of the devastation in rural areas.
The destruction in Kathmandu, the capital, is stark: Revered temples reduced to rubble, people buried in the wreckage of their homes, hospitals short on medical supplies overflowing with patients. Serious damage is also reported in villages in the surrounding valley.
But farther out across Nepal’s rugged landscape — closer to the epicenter of the 7.8 magnitude quake that struck Saturday — the situation is worryingly murky.
The official death toll from Saturday’s earthquake in Nepal has increased.
Nepal police late Wednesday reported 5,045 deaths had occurred in Nepal.
It also said more than 10,100 people had been injured and 7,400 of them remained hospitalized.
In addition, 19 people were killed on Mount Everest, 61 people were killed in India and China reported 25 deaths in Tibet.

FRIVOLOUS LAW SUITS MATTER …
The family of Michael Brown, the 18 year old black teen that was shot by a white police officer, is planning on filing a law suit against Ferguson for wrongful death. HUH?The formal announcement is expected Thursday morning in St. Louis. Id the Brown family looking for strike 3? A grand jury has already refused to indict police officer Darren Wilson in the shooting death of the so-called “Gentle Giant”, see below pic of Brown in a strong armed robbery of a store clerk for a box of cigars. Then, Eric Holder and the Justice Department dropped the civil law suit against officer Wilson as there was no there, there to charge Wilson on racial bias.
Does some one need to remind the Brown family that “Hands Up, Dont’ Shoot” was based upon a lie? Trust me, if Eric Holder could not get a scalp with his DOJ investigation of officer Wilson, there is nothing there. In fact, the DOJ investigation showed that all of the credible witnesses corroborated officer Wilson’s events of what happened. The family may want to really just let this go as they may do even more harm than good to the legacy of Michael Brown.
Lawyers for the parents of Michael Brown, the unarmed, black 18-year-old who was fatally shot by a white police officer in a St. Louis suburb, announced Wednesday night that they planned to file a civil lawsuit the following day against the city of Ferguson.
Attorneys for the family said in a statement Wednesday night that the wrongful death lawsuit would be filed Thursday. The lawsuit had been expected. Attorneys for Brown’s mother, Lesley McSpadden, and his father, Michael Brown Sr., announced at a press conference in early March that a wrongful death lawsuit would be filed “soon.” Attorneys said at the time that the lawsuit would also name former Officer Darren Wilson, who shot Brown.
Barack Obama’s JV terrorist killers take credit for slaughter of 33 people in Afghanistan …
Hours after the suicide bombing attack Jalalabad, Afghanistan that saw 33 people killed and more than 100 injured, ISIS took credit for the slaughter. The attack in Jalalabad, the capital of eastern Nagarhar province, targeted a crowd of soldiers and civilians gathered outside the bank to receive their monthly salaries. Even the Taliban condemned the attack and killing of innocents who were just simply waiting in line outside a bank. Taliban spokesman Zabihullah Mujahid stated,“It was an evil act. We strongly condemn it.” You know you are a bunch of savage murdering animals when other terrorist groups condemn your killing. But of course, this is the same radical Islamist terrorists that Barack Obama called the JV and says are not Islamic.
A motorcycle-riding suicide bomber attacked a bank branch Saturday in eastern Afghanistan, killing at least 33 people in a deadly attack the country’s president said was claimed by the Islamic State group.
The attack marks a major escalation in the country’s fight against an affiliate of the extremist group that now holds a third of Iraq and Syria in its self-declared caliphate.
It also comes as Afghan security forces fight against the Taliban after U.S. and NATO forces ended their combat mission in the country at the start of the year, yet another challenge for the war-ravaged nation.
The attack in Jalalabad, capital of eastern Nagarhar province, targeted a crowd of soldiers and civilians gathered outside the bank to receive their monthly salaries. The blast killed at least 33 people and wounded more than 100, said Dr. Hamayon Zaheer, the head of Jalalabad’s hospital.
Hours after the attack, President Ashraf Ghani blamed the Islamic State group for the attack.
“In the horrific incident in Nangarhar, who took responsibility? The Taliban didn’t claim responsibility. Daesh claimed responsibility for it,” Ghani said, using an Arabic acronym for the group.
Ghani warned before that the Islamic State group was starting to establish a presence in Afghanistan. He used his visit to the United States last month to reiterate his concerns that the extremist group was making inroads into Afghanistan.

Simply heartbreaking …
Ksenia Quiros, the mother of 21 year old Cadet 1st Class Alexandre Quiros who died mysteriously at the Air Force Academy, went missing on April 15, 2015 in Colorado Springs, Colorado. According to her husband, Ksenia Quiros went missing Wednesday morning and their family’s truck, a 1998 red Dodge Ram, was found at an open space on the southwest side of town. Ksenia Quiros is described as 44, 5-foot-2, 110 pounds with blue eyes.
The mother of an Air Force Academy cadet who died under mysterious circumstances has gone missing, according to her husband.
The Air Force Office of Special Investigations is still investigating the death of 21-year-old Cadet 1st Class Alexandre Quiros. He was found injured in a dorm room on campus and later died on April 2. The cause of his death hasn’t been made public but it’s not a criminal investigation.
Now Quiros’ mother, Ksenia Quiros, has disappeared. Her husband told KKTV, the CBS station in Colorado Springs, his wife went missing Wednesday morning. Her family’s truck, a 1998 red Dodge Ram, was found at an open space on the southwest side of town but dogs lost her scent during a search.
UPDATE I: New focus for search for missing mom.
The Colorado Spring Fire Department and other agencies have spent two days searching for the mom of a deceased Air Force Academy cadet, but there is still no sign of her.
At a media briefing Friday afternoon, crews said they are now focusing on the west side of the Stratton Open Space. A witness reported seeing the woman “alive and well” an Arroyo Grande Trail Wednesday.
Multi Mission Aircraft with infrared technology and Civil Air Patrol joined the search Friday. Fire Chief Chris Riley said weather conditions had prevented them from using air crews before then. On Thursday, firefighters, motorcycles, brush trucks and heavy rescue teams were part of the search.
If you know anything about her whereabouts, call Colorado Springs Police at (719) 444-7000.
On the fourth day of searching for a missing woman, volunteers made a grisly discovery in Cheyenne Canon.
Capt. Steve Oswald with the Colorado Springs Fire Department said it was a member of a citizen search party who spotted a woman’s body in a rugged, steep area not far from the Gold Camp Reservoir.
All indications point to the deceased being Ksenia Quiros, Oswald said, though the official confirmation won’t come until an autopsy is completed.
It was the outcome the community was praying wouldn’t come for a family now twice hit by tragedy, starting with the untimely death of their 19-year-old son. On April 2, Air Force Academy Cadet 1st Class Alexandre Quiros passed away after being found in his dorm room with unspecified injuries. The Air Force Office of Special Investigations is now investigating the cause of death, but say it’s not a criminal investigation.
Veterinarian Kristen Lindsey Fired from Washington Animal Clinic in Brenham, TX After Bragging About Killing Cat with Bow & Arrow On Facebook
WHAT KIND OF SICK BASTARD MUST YOU BE TO DO SUCH A THING … I DON’T CARE WHETHER THIS CAT WAS FERAL OR NOT, WHICH IT TURNED OUT TO BE NOT!!!
Kristen Lindsey, a veterinarian in Brenham, Texas, has been fired from the Washington Animal Clinic after having bragged on social media about killing a cat with a bow and arrow. Dr. Kristen Lindsey, DVM posted a picture on her Facebook page (warning, pic is graphic) of her holding an arrow that is sticking through the head of a dead cat as the post read “My first bow kill, lol. The only good feral tomcat is one with an arrow through it’s head! Vet of the year award … Gladly accepted.” This sadistic fool went on to write in the comment section of her post, “no I did not lose my job. Lol. Psshh. Like someone would get rid of me. I’m awesome!” As it would turn out what was more awesome was the rage from those who read and saw the post as they rang the phone off the hook of the Washington Animal Clinic and crashed their web sight. And I guess Kristen Lindsey isn’t as awesome as she thinks she is, because she was fired.
It turns out that the cat she killed was not a “feral tomcat,” but instead a elderly couples missing 6 year old pet named Tiger. However, losing her job may be the least of Lindsey’s problems as Austin County Sheriff Jack Brandes said he is investigating possible criminal charges.
