ISIS Beheads Abducted American Hostage Photo-Journalist James Wright Foley (VIDEO) (Update: Second U.S. Journalist Steven Joel Sotloff Threatened)
SAVAGES BEHEAD AMERICAN JOURNALIST …
ISIS has released a video showing the beheading of U.S. journalist James Foley and has threatened the life of another American journalist held hostage if President Barack Obama doesn’t end military operations in Iraq. The savage execution just shows how brutal and without conscience these individuals really are. SM will not post or link out the violent video of Foley’s killing out of respect to his family, but as Mediaite reports, the video (edited), entitled “Letter to America,” shows ISIS terrorists forcing Foley to read a letter urging Americans to rise up against his “real killer, the U.S. government.”Also, Foley is forced to go on and say, the U.S. airstrikes against ISIS “hammered the final nail into [his] coffin.” James Foley disappeared on November 22, 2012, in northwest Syria, near the border with Turkey when he was reportedly forced into a vehicle by gunmen.
A video released by ISIS shows the beheading of U.S. journalist James Foley and threatens the life of another American if President Barack Obama doesn’t end military operations in Iraq.
In the video posted Tuesday on YouTube, Foley is seen kneeling next to a man dressed in black. Foley reads a message, presumably scripted by his captors, that his “real killer” is America.
“I wish I had more time. I wish I could have the hope for freedom to see my family once again,” he can be heard saying in the video.
He is then shown being beheaded.
Islamic State, ISIS, says that another U.S. journalist’s fate depends on Barack Obama.
Islamic State militants claimed in a video on Tuesday to be holding U.S. journalist Steven Sotloff and said his life depended on U.S. President Barack Obama’s next move.
“The life of this American citizen, Obama, depends on your next decision,” said a masked man in the video posted on social media sites, speaking English with a British accent as he held a prisoner the video named as Steven Sotloff.
A message from Jim’s mom, Diane Foley:
We have never been prouder of our son Jim. He gave his life trying to expose the world to the suffering of the Syrian people.
We implore the kidnappers to spare the lives of the remaining hostages. Like Jim, they are innocents. They have no control over American government policy in Iraq, Syria or anywhere in the world.
We thank Jim for all the joy he gave us. He was an extraordinary son, brother, journalist and person. Please respect our privacy in the days ahead as we mourn and cherish Jim.
James Foley, RIP
UPDATE III: Rest in Peace James Wright Foley.
Foley, 40, grew up in New Hampshire and was originally a teacher, at one point teaching prison inmates in Arizona, before attending the Medill school of journalism at Northwestern University. After graduation, his first assignment was as an embed with the U.S. Army’s 173rd Brigade and 101st Airborne Division in Afghanistan. Foley had been covering the Syria’s civil war for GlobalPost and Agence France-Presse (AFP) when he was allegedly pulled from the car he was traveling in to meet with a colleague and abducted at gunpoint. According to the Columbia Journalism Review, GlobalPost hired an international security firm for a ground level investigation in Northern Syria and along the Turkish border to locate him.
Foley was also detained and held for 44 days in Libya in 2011.
President Barack Obama heads back to Martha’s Vineyard for vacation and not a word regarding this savage beheading at the hands of the jayvee terrorists, ISIS.
The Body of Missing 19 Year Old Marine Wife Erin Corwin in Mine Shaft Near in Twentynine Palms, CA … 24 Year Old Christopher Brandon Lee Arrested
Sad conclusion to the search for missing Erin Corwin …
The body of missing 19 year old Erin Corwin has been found in a mine shaft on federal land near her home in Twentynine Palms, CA. Erin Corwin, the pregnant wife of a U.S. Marine, had been missing since June 28, 2014. According to court papers, Lee and Corwin were lovers and she had planned to meet Lee for a hunting trip on June 28. Corwin vanished on the way to Joshua Tree National Park on June 28 and was never seen from or heard from again. Following the discovery of Corwin’s body, authorities in Anchorage, Alaska arrested Christopher Brandon Lee Sunday night.
Deep in a mine shaft in the California desert, the body of a pregnant wife of a U.S. Marine was discovered after a search of nearly two months.
Far off in Alaska, a man alleged to have been her lover was arrested on suspicion of homicide.
Authorities on Monday outlined the discovery of 19-year-old Erin Corwin and the arrest of 24-year-old Christopher Brandon Lee, who until recently was also a Marine.
The search for Corwin ended Saturday when her body was spotted with a video camera 140 feet down a mine shaft on federal land near her home in Twentynine Palms, where her husband was stationed, San Bernardino County Sheriff John McMahon said. He said deputies searched many of the 100 mine shafts in a 300 square mile area before zeroing in on right one.
The following day authorities arrested Lee, Corwin’s former neighbor, in Anchorage.
Christopher Brandon Lee Arrested
The body of a missing pregnant woman originally from Oak Ridge was found Sunday in a mine shaft and her alleged lover has been arrested in her murder, according to ABC-affiliate WATE in Knoxville.
On Monday officials with the San Bernardino, California Sheriff’s Office said they developed information that the remains of Erin Corwin, 20, had been placed in a mine shaft. After searching and investigating a number of mine shafts in the area, human remains were found in a shaft Saturday.
Crews were able to retrieve the remains from the shaft Sunday. Dental records showed the remains were Corwin’s.
Judge Jeanine Pirro Opening Statement 8/9/14 – Rips Obama on Iraq ISIS Situation … “This is a reverse crusade, Muslim extremists looking to kill Christians and Jews. Today, it’s different. They are coming for us.”
Judge Jeanine Pirro hammers Barack Obama on ISIS in Iraq and his feckless foreign policy as he heads off for yet another vacation.
Pirro said Obama’s incompetence is on display for all the world to see as the country’s enemies conduct a “reverse crusade.”
“I’m not going to blame the problems of the world on Barack Obama – though it wouldn’t take much to get me on a tear at this point,” she said on “Justice with Judge Jeanine.” “But the problem is, President Barack Obama is too inexperienced, too out of touch and too disengaged to protect us.”
His news conference Friday didn’t help, Pirro said, noting that “the backdrop was his helicopter, on which his bags were packet for yet another vacation in Martha’s Vineyard.”
“This is a reverse crusade, Muslim extremists looking to kill Christians and Jews,” she said. “Today, it’s different. They are coming for us.”
Random Robbery or Hate Crime: 60 Year Old Brooklyn Orthodox Rabbi Joseph Raksin Gunned Down & Murdered While Walking to Bais Menachem Synagogue Saturday Morning in Northeast Miami-Dade, FL
Random robbery gone wrong or Hate Crime?
Joseph Raksin, a 60 year old rabbi from Brooklyn, NY who was visiting family, was gunned down and murdered as he was walking to a Northeast Miami-Dade synagogue at about 9 am Saturday for Temple services. The two young, black teen males fled the crime scene and are currently being sought by police. The shooting victim was airlifted to the Ryder Trauma Center, where he later died from his wounds. Police stated that Raksin was walking eastbound on Northeast 175th Street and Eighth Court when he was confronted by two young men and gunned down after an altercation in what was most likely a random robbery attempt.
A 60-year-old Orthodox rabbi from Brooklyn on his way to a Northeast Miami-Dade synagogue was gunned down Saturday morning during a likely random robbery attempt, according to Miami-Dade police and local Jewish community leaders.
The shooting victim, Joseph Raksin, was walking eastbound on Northeast 175th Street and Eighth Court at about 9 a.m. when he was confronted by two young men. Following an altercation, Raksin was shot by one of the men, police said.
The authorities were quick to call this a random act of violence as Miami-Dade police spokeswoman Elena Hernandez in a statement,“At this time there is no indication of this being a hate crime.” However, that is not what is being said from Yona Lunger, a local Jewish community activist and member of the Shmira Patrol, a neighborhood watch group. According to accounts, Lunger spoke to one witness who told him, that contrary to what Miami-Dade police reported, Raksin had no altercation with the two young men. Raskin was shot immediately after the two approached him on Northeast 175th Street. Also, The shocking crime took place in broad daylight was just a few blocks away from Torah V’Emunah, an Orthodox synagogue where swastikas were spray painted last month. Coincidence?
Raksin was on his way to Bais Menachem, 1005 NE 172nd Ter., when he was shot, said Lunger, who spoke to one witness who told him that — contrary to what Miami-Dade police reported — Raksin had no altercation with the two young men. He said the witness, whom he did not identify, told him that Raksin was shot immediately after the two approached him on Northeast 175th Street.
Another local Jewish community leader, Brian Siegal, director of the American Jewish Committee’s Miami and Broward Regional Office, said he believes Raksin’s shooting may be connected to the recent act of vandalism at the nearby Torah V’Emunah, an Orthodox synagogue, 1000 NE 174th St.
Two points to ponder with this story as to whether it was or was not a hate crime. First, other than the VIDEO from NBC News 6 above, no where is it referenced that the two murder suspects were two black teens. Also, just curious, would the police have been so quick to discount this as a hate crime if the murder victim was a religious leader with the name of Abdul or Mohammed? But of course that is the double standard we with in this politically correct world.
Border Patrol Agent Chris Cabrera Says Federal Government Releasing Murderers Into U.S. & Morale is at an All-Time Low
What else should we expect from Barack Obama, a Community agitator?
Is it any surprise that US Border agent’s morale is at an all-time low when agents are not allowed to do the job that they were hired to do and they see on a daily basis that they have to let admitted gang members and murderers into the United States per the federal government? What has become of this country? Honestly, what is the point of having immigration laws, border agents and a border if we are not going to uphold them? This is what happens when you let the inmates run the asylum.
A Border Patrol agent claims that the federal government is allowing murderers from Central America to be released into the U.S.
Speaking to Fox News on Wednesday, agent Chris Cabrera stated that these teenage gang members crossing the border are being released to family members in the U.S.
“If they have family in the United States, they’ll release them to the family, even if they’re admitted gang members,” Cabrera explained to Fox News. “We’ve had a couple that had admitted to murders in their home country. They were 17 years old, 16 years old, and the United States government thought it fit to release them to their parents here in the United States.
“Even if he’s a confirmed gang member, a confirmed criminal even by self-admission, we for some reason don’t send them back to their home country, we release them into our country.”
Body of Missing 6 Year Old Jenise Wright found in Wooded Area Near Her Mobile Home Park in Bremerton, WA (VIDEO) … RIP (Update: Death Ruled a Homicide)
JUST TRAGIC …
The body of 6 year old missing Jenise Wright was found Thursday in a wooded area near her mobile home park in Bremerton, WA. Although the body found has not been officially ID’d, it is thought to be Jenise Wright. Authorities are considering this a criminal case. Kitsap County sheriff’s deputy Scott Wilson said at a late afternoon news briefing, “We suspect that she just did not go off by herself and fall into some bushes and die.” Jenise Wright was last seen Saturday night, August 2, 2014; however, was not reported missing until about 24 hours later. An autopsy will be conducted Friday to determine the 6 year old’s cause of death. No arrests have been made yet; however, the police said that they’re trying to narrow in on a suspect, and they’re “not ruling out anything.”
The body of Jenise Wright, the 6-year-old East Bremerton girl who has been missing since Sunday, was found in a wooded area near her mobile home park Thursday, authorities said, and that her death isn’t believed to have been accidental.
“This is going to be a criminal investigation, there’s no doubt about that,” Kitsap County sheriff’s deputy Scott Wilson said at a late afternoon news briefing. “We suspect that she just did not go off by herself and fall into some bushes and die.”
“It’s tragic circumstances that bring us here,” Frank Montoya Jr., FBI Special Agent in Charge of the Seattle office, said at the same news briefing at Jenise’s Steele Creek Mobile Home Park.
He praised the operators of the FBI’s K-9 teams. “The K-9s were so instrumental in actually locating the body of Jenise today,” Montoya said. “We couldn’t have done it without them.”
News conference on discovery of child’s body
The Sheriff’s Office said the remains appear to be the body of Jenise.
The body is expected to be positively identified Friday by the Kitsay County coroner, who will also determine the cause and manner of death.
Video from Chopper 7 showed several officers gathered at the entrance to a wooded area near the mobile home park. Police cars were seen in a field and investigators dressed in white protective suits were spotted going in and out of the mobile home where Jenise and her family live Thursday afternoon.
Anyone with information about the girl can contact Kitsap County’s Sheriff’s Office at 360-308-5400 or the FBI’s tip line at 1-800-225-5324.

Oh the irony, hasn’t the MSM reported that these kids were coming illegally to America to get away from the gangs, violence and murders?
Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel wants to welcome immigrant children who crossing the U.S. border illegally to the Killing Field of Chicago. What a joke. Chicago is one of the most dangerous and violent cities in the country and Rahm wants to bring vulnerable illegal children into that environment. Over this past weekend,23 individuals were sot, 22 were wounded and one killed alone. Wasn’t the point of why these children showed up and crossed the US border illegally to get away from the gang violence and murderous conditions of their countries? Chicago cannot take care of their current problems and they want to add to it. UNREAL.
Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel wants to open the city up to more immigrant children crossing the border illegally, with plans to open up shelters in the city to 1,000 minors by the end of the year.
Mr. Emanuel’s office also plans to launch a “broad-based pro bono campaign,” using the city’s legal resources to council young immigrants
The influx of unaccompanied child migrants is a growing humanitarian crisis that we can no longer ignore,” Mr. Emanuel said in a statement, the Chicago Tribune reported Saturday.
“While we have our own challenges at home, we cannot turn our backs on children that are fleeing dangerous conditions,” he said. “We will do or part to ensure that these children are given access to services and treated fairly and humanely,” the Tribune reported.
But citizens in Chicago, one of America’s most violent cities, have claimed that the Obama administration is placing the plight of illegal immigrants above the needs of Chicago’s citizens.

It was August 15, 2006 when Liz and husband David Carroll said on that 3 year old Marcus Fiesel disappeared in an Anderson Township, OH park. This sparking a search by thousands of volunteers that lasted several days. Marcus’ mom Liz Caroll tearfully begged people to help find her son, all the while she knew exactly what had happened and what she did to this poor child.
Marcus Fiesel, RIP
The death of 3-year-old Marcus Fiesel, who authorities said was killed by his foster parents in 2006, will be featured on “Deadline: Crime with Tamron Hall” 10 p.m. Sunday on the Investigation Discovery channel.
The one-hour show includes an interview with Liz Carroll, Marcus’ foster mother, who is serving a life prison sentence after her conviction in a Clermont County Common Pleas Court in 2007.
Investigation Discovery, one of the sister Discovery Channel networks, can be found in Greater Cincinnati on Time Warner Channels 1139 (HD) and 139, and on Northern Kentucky Time Warner Channels 948 (HD) and 471, and Cincinnati Fioptics Channels 675 (HD) and 275.
What really happened to Marcus as Liz Carroll was providing crocodile tears …
Liz and David Carroll wrapped Marcus in a blanket, bound him with duct tape and left him in a hot closet without food and water while they went out of town for a weekend family reunion, prosecutors said.
After finding him dead, David Carroll and his live-in lover, Amy Baker, took Marcus’ body to a rural area and burned it with gasoline. Then they threw the remains in the Ohio River.
The horrific 2006 murder of 3 year old Marcus Fiesel, a special needs Foster child, was one that shocked the senses of everyone, including myself. However, from the outset of the case of missing Marcus Fiesel, some thing just seemed to be wrong. Flashback to 2006, Scared Monkeys followed the events from the outset and had posted some rather critical articles of the foster parents accounts, obviously striking a nerve with Liz Carroll. The posts prompted Liz to leave a comment on Missing & Exploited web page that was far from PG rated and some what threatening. Needless to say it was forwarded to authorities. That very next morning, as fate would have it, Liz and David Carroll were arrested in the death of Marcus Fiesel.
Newspapers and television stations in southwest Ohio have followed every step in the case, and now that his foster parents have been charged, the story has grabbed the attention of media outlets throughout the United States.
There are Web sites that feature photo albums, message boards, chat rooms and slide and video shows. One of those is www.scaredmonkeys.com, dedicated to exploited and missing children. “Red,” one of the site’s co-founders, said after news of Marcus’ disappearance was linked to his Web site, he received an e-mail from Marcus’ foster mother. She chastised the site for their portrayal.
“As soon as she did that, well, it was like, she’s guilty,” Red said Friday from his office in Maine. “You knew this was going to end bad. The radar just went up. It raises the hair on the back of your neck. When you kill your son, and go public pleading for help, it brings it to a special level of hell.”
He said Marcus’ story has drawn widespread coverage because people are so “disgusted by it.” (Middletown Journal)
Here is one comment from Liz that we were able to print. Too bad she was lying through her murderous teeth.
First, I would like to state that the most important thing that everyone should be concerned about is finding my son. My family’s past and living arrangements have absolutely nothing to do with finding him. My family left our home to avoid media and multiple stangers from sitting outside our house at all hours. We have cooperated 110% with the detectives and have stayed in touch with them on a daily basis. Again, my family has done nothing wrong, we love and miss Marcus. I regret going to the park, not sitting down and not eating that morning. My family and I take day care and foster care children to King’s Island, Water parks, town parks, YMCA, aquariums, carnivals, festivals, and many more places. Since this incident, I have not been left alone and we haven’t taken out kids anywhere but school shopping. I am begging for anyone and everyone that reads this to PLEASE help me find my son. I know that I will not be able to care for him after this incident but I still need to know that he is alright. PLEASE call crime stoppers with ANY possible leads!!!!!!Thank you.

Hey Rolling Stone … please stick to reporting on music, because this article is nothing short of embarrassing.
Rolling Stone has a list of the top 5 most dangerous guns in America as per By Kristen Gwynne. In other words, basically any gun that actually shoots a bullet or buckshot is dangerous. HUH? Looking at the title one might think that Ms. Gwynne was going to provide us a list of the actual brand name and type of guns that are used in most crimes or murders, rather than providing us a 4th grade essay on “Most dangerous Guns in America for Dummies”. My apologies to 4th graders across the United States. How exactly can all guns be the most dangerous guns in America. As The Truth About Guns opines, “In other words, guns are the most dangerous guns in America. Small ones more than big ones, although really small ones not so much. Well that’s just dumb.” YES IT IS. I cannot even call this media bias. it’s media stupidity.
Rolling Stones list of the 5 most dangerous guns:
You have got to read the article to get a true appreciation of just how far Rolling Stone has fallen and what passes for news in today media. With regards to a revolver: “Some grenade launchers, shotguns, and rifles also have rotating barrels, but the term ‘revolver’ is generally used to describe handguns. Revolver types include single and double-action firing mechanisms, the latter of which does not require a cocking action separate from the trigger pull”. Rifles on the other hand, “were created to improve the accuracy of smoothbore muskets, for which the musket ball was often an bad fit due to manufacturing complications. Accurate and easy-to-aim, rifles are now the most common hunting weapon.” GOOD GRIEF.
Some one might want to tell Rolling Stones that knives, hands, fists, feet, clubs and baseball bats are more dangerous and actually killed four of the five “guns” referenced above. And look here, for 2012, clubs, blunt objects, hands fists and feet all out-pace firearms.
