FEDS Warn of Possible ‘Lone Wolf’ Terrorists Threats Ahead of 4th of July

So what makes this 4th of July so special …

The authorities are saying that there has been no specific, credible threat; however, they are warning of possible lone wolf terrorist acts this 4th o July weekend. As reported at CNN, as Americans get ready for the holiday weekend, the Department of Homeland Security, FBI and the National Counterterrorism Center have issued a bulletin to law enforcement across the country warning of the possibility of an imminent strike against the United States. Intelligence agencies are watching as online chatter rises. But how is this different than past years? Could it possible be that ISIS, the so-called JV terrorist group as once stated by Barack Obama is now very active and successful in using social media to recruit “lone wolfs” to commit terror acts?

This 4th of July weekend, have fun, enjoy your time but be vigilant.

Terror Threat

Since the attacks of Sept. 11, 2001, American counterterrorism officials have increased security at national landmarks and large public events ahead of major holidays or significant anniversaries, and issued bulletins calling for increased vigilance by the public.

But this Fourth of July weekend has spawned particularly strong warnings about a potential attack as the federal authorities and national security experts say the United States is more susceptible now because of tactics chosen for recent terrorist strikes by the Islamic State.

Officials cite an increased effort by the Islamic State to galvanize its sympathizers in the United States and elsewhere since Memorial Day and during this Ramadan season to carry out acts of violence on their own — so-called lone-wolf attacks. Those potential plots by individuals are harder for the authorities to detect and disrupt, senior American officials say, and have led the F.B.I. to put more Americans under investigation for suspected ties to terrorist groups than at any point since Sept. 11.

At the same time, senior American officials acknowledge that, as with many past holidays and anniversaries, they know of no specific terror plot against targets in the United States. And while militants have said in previous years that they would like to pull off an attack on a major national holiday, there has not been a successful terrorist strike on American soil on a previous July 4 or similarly high-profile day.

One thing is for certain, if these radical Islamist terrorists ever attacked America on Independence Day, it would be their ultimate demise.

One Person Decapitated & Several Injured in Islamic Terror Attack on a US Owned factory in France (Update: One Terrorist Killed, One Arrested)

ISLAMIC TERRORIST ATTACK IN FRANCE …

The BBC is reporting that there has been a terrorist attack at a factory in France that has left one individual dead and several injured. The attack occurred around 10:00 local time (08:00 GMT), when a car crashed through the gates of the US owned company Air Products plant in southeastern France’s town of Saint-Quentin Fallavier. Officials said that set off an explosion. French President Francois Hollande has called this an act of terrorism. President Hollande stated the decapitated body was found with “inscriptions” on it and said the attack bore the hallmarks of terrorism, adding that security has been stepped up at sensitive sites in France. The decapitated body was found with Islamic flags placed nearby.

A man has been decapitated and several others injured at a factory in France in what President Francois Hollande has called a terrorist attack.

Two men drove into the Air Products gas factory near Lyon, French officials said, before several explosions were heard.

One of the suspects, who was investigated by police in 2006, has been arrested.

The dead man was found with Arabic inscriptions on him and an Islamist flag was found near the site.

At a press conference from Brussels, Mr Hollande confirmed that two attackers had targeted the chemicals factory in Saint-Quentin-Fallavier, crashing into it in a car.

“We have no doubt that the attack was to blow up the building. It bears the hallmarks of a terrorist attack,” he said

UPDATE I:  Multiple Arrests After Factory Attack.

A 30 year old has been arrested who is reportedly known to authorities.  French Interior Minister Bernard Cazeneuve said the suspect was believed to be from the area and had been flagged in 2006 for ties to Islamic extremists, but surveillance was dropped in 2008.

France’s top security official says a man arrested in the attack at a gas factory in southeastern France was known to intelligence services for possible ties to Islamic extremists but had no arrest record.

Interior Minister Bernard Cazeneuve says the investigation has just begun and cautioned against jumping to conclusions.

The suspect had been flagged as an extremist in 2006 and then police monitoring dropped off two years later, according to Cazeneuve.

College Student Munther Omar Saleh Arrested in Queens, NY … Supporting Islamic Terrorism & Plotting Terror Attack in NYC

FEDS ARREST MUSLIM COLLEGE STUDENT IN QUEENS, NY …

20 year old college student Munther Omar Saleh has been arrested by the federal authorities in  Queens, NY for platting to commit a terror attack in New York City. According to court reports, in September, Saleh posted a message on Twitter that said Al Qaeda was “getting too moderate”, and in February, a message praising the Islamic State, also known as ISIS or ISIL, “for their high end videos, great weaponry and quality fighters”.  Saleh is a student at Vaughn College of Aeronautics and Technology in Queens. The complaint also states, that on May 7, “Saleh emailed himself information from the Internet regarding the construction of a pressure cooker bomb.”

The father claims that his son was set up and was doing simple internet searches like any other 20 year old. Yup, just like any other Muslim sympathizer doing searches of pressure cookers, how to make bombs, firearms, ammunition, drones, bullet proof vests and NYC tourist attractions. Oh yeah, and he endorsed the Charlie Hebdo massacre, the burning to death of a Jordanian pilot and the beheading of a Chinese journalist. Yup, just your typical misunderstood kid.

According to court documents, the 20-year-old espoused jihadist beliefs online and openly supported ISIS activities via Twitter, including the Charlie Hebdo massacre in France, the burning to death of a Jordanian pilot and the beheading of a Japanese journalist. He also allegedly tweeted support for the terror attack in Garland, Texas in May.

Saleh landed on federal authorities’ radar after allegedly loitering on the George Washington Bridge on two consecutive days in March, Carlin reported. He was spotted by a Port Authority of New York and New Jersey police officer, WCBS 880’s Marla Diamond reported.

A further investigation into Saleh’s activities uncovered possible plans to detonate an explosive device in New York City on behalf of the terror group, court documents said.

Investigators claim he also used his personal computer to search topics ranging from weapons and pressure cookers, to eluding police and disguises.

The specific searches allegedly included, “construction of a pressure cooker bomb,” “firearms,” “ammunition,” “bulletproof vests,” “drones,” and “New York City landmarks and tourist attractions.”

In May, an informant posing as a terrorist sympathizer said he spoke to Saleh, who reportedly said “I’m in NY and I’m trying to do an Op.”

Former Marine Jerry Delemus to Hold a Draw the Prophet Mohammed Contest in New Hampshire

ANOTHER DRAW MOHAMMED ART CONTEST COMING TO NEW HAMPSHIRE LATER THIS SUMMER …

60 year old former US Marine Jerry Delemus has announced that he plans to host a “Draw Muhammad” art contest later this Summer in August in the Granite state.  Delemus stated that images of the Muslim Prophet Muhammad are prohibited in Islam, but DeLemus claimed that in light of groups who would kill citizens expressing their freedom of speech, protecting the constitutional rights is more important. Note to all, there is a reason why New Hampshire’s State motto is, “Love Free Or Die”.

A New Hampshire man wants to defy an Islamic prohibition on depicting the prophet Muhammad in pictures and plans to host a “Draw Muhammad” art contest in August.

Jerry Delemus, a 60-year-old former Marine, says the freedom of expression guaranteed by the First Amendment trumps any religion’s limitations on such expression, “If we back away from our freedom as citizens a little bit at a time, the next thing you know, we don’t have any freedoms left,” DeLemus explained to the CBS affiliate WGME.

DeLemus said he hasn’t heard from the local Islamic community, but residents in the area aren’t sure the event is a good idea. Eric Adema said, “I don’t understand the point of inciting violence, it’s just going to cause more problems.”

A venue has yet to be determined, but DeLemus says the contest will likely take place in August. He says he recognizes there are risks inherent in hosting such an event, but adds that he plans on having plenty of security on hand.

Rochester resident looks to start ‘draw Muhammad’ contest.

“I’m not worried about taking a risk,” he said. “It’s more important to defend our way of life in this country, our constitutional rights, for everybody,” he said.

Asked about his feelings about insulting the faith of Muslims who are not extremists, DeLemus cited citizens’ rights to freedom of speech.

“If they’re offended, welcome to America,” he said, pointing to the idea of citizens disagreeing while still accepting each others’ constitutional rights.

The MSM reports this as an affront to Islam rather than what it truly is, standing up for free speech. One would think the media would understand matters of free speech. Sadly, the MSM and clueless folks like local resident above, Eric Adema, who stated, “I don’t understand the point of inciting violence, it’s just going to cause more problems.” Really? I guess the Founding Fathers should have just cowered down to the British with that little taxation without representation thing because they were just causing trouble. To not exercise your freedoms and liberties for fear of insane, radical religious reprisal just might be considered borderline Un-America. How many people have fought and died for out religious freedoms, only to have radicals in one religion threaten to kill if you dare draw a picture.

WHAT PART ABOUT FREEDOM OF SPEECH TRUMPS ALL BECAUSE IF YOU HAVE NO FREE SPEECH, YOU HAVE NO FREEDOM.

Rev. Ronald Wright of Justice Seekers Texas Warned Americans That a Domestic Terror Attack is Coming “And the Group is Not Going to be ISIS, It’s Going to be USIS”

DID THIS BLACK ACTIVIST PASTOR JUST THREATEN THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA WITH A DOMESTIC TERROR ATTACK?

In the aftermath of the out of control pool party in McKinney, Texas caught on VIDEO, the subsequent police reaction to the mob of unruly kids, the protests  and the resignation of the police officer Eric Casebolt comes the following disgusting, race-baiting and UN-Holy comments from Rev. Ronald Wright of Justice Seekers. Really, is this type of race-baiting rhetoric really necessary?

“We’re setting the stage for a terrorist attack in this country. And the group is not going to be ISIS, it’s going to be USIS, us against these unjust law officers and people who continue to allow racism to grow into this city.”

 Rev. Ronald Wright, executive director of Justice Seekers Texas, warned of ISIS-style terror attacks in America from “us” because of “unjust law officers and people who continue to allow racism to grow into this city.” Where is his aarrest for making a terrorist threat? They forgot to mention is their mission statement, focusing on Domestic Terror attacks from USIS.

Founded February 2010  a newly formed Civil Rights and Social Justice Organization which focuses on Civil Rights and Social Justice (for all citizens), Education, Health, Employee Rights, Veterans Affairs, Domestic Violence, Juvenile Delinquency/Recidivism, Assisting ex-felons with employment opportunities, Rights of the incarcerated, probationers, and parolees.

Barack Obama Says On ISIS Strategy: “We Don’t Yet Have A Complete Strategy” (VIDEO)

HE SAID WHAT!!!

Barack Obama admitted on Monday at the G7 Conference in Germany that he does not yet have a “complete strategy” to defeat ISIS.  WHAT!!! How in the hell could we not have a complete strategy, actually it would appear that Obama does not even have a partial strategy when it comes to taking on the savage terrorists of ISIS. Obama is the worst president this country has ever seen. Obama would not know what leadership was if he tripped over it. It is incomprehensible to imagine that after all this time that Obama has no strategy when it comes to ISIS. I would ask the following question, will the real JV please stand up. If there was ever a question, that would be you Barack Obama. In the end, this man just does not care about fighting terrorism. These comments should frighten the hell out of Americans.

President Obama said Monday the United States does not have a complete plan to train and equip Iraqi forces to fight the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria (ISIS), saying Baghdad needs to show a greater commitment to building a fighting force.

“We don’t yet have a complete strategy,” Obama told reporters during a news conference at the G-7 summit of leading industrial nations in Germany.

Obama’s comments are a surprising admission nine months into the U.S.-led coalition’s campaign against the terror group.

The strategy to fight ISIS, but Obama certainly had a well thought out strategy and plan to lie to the American people to pass Obamacare, didn’t he?

TSA (Transportation Security Administration ) Has 95% Failure Rate

HOW CAN ANY AGENCY CONTINUE TO OPERATE WITH A 95% FAILURE RATE?

What a joke, The TSA is a complete and total farce. According to an internal investigation of the Transportation Security Administration, it revealed TSA security failures at dozens of the nation’s busiest airports, where undercover investigators were able to smuggle mock explosives or banned weapons through checkpoints in 95 percent of trials. 95%!!! It really makes one wonder how we have not been hit by terrorism. But don’t worry, those TSA agents can sure harass granny and little kids. With a failure rate like this of detecting bombs and weapons being attempted to carry on a plane, it is just “plane” $hit luck that a commercial aircraft has not been blown out of the sky. This is just simply unacceptable.

And what happened to the man at the head of this colossal failure … why he was reassigned to another position to screw that up as well. Reassigned???!!! How can anyone have a 5% success rate and retain employment? Be a government employee of course.

ABC News – Undercover DHS Tests Find Security Failures at US Airports.

An internal investigation of the Transportation Security Administration revealed security failures at dozens of the nation’s busiest airports, where undercover investigators were able to smuggle mock explosives or banned weapons through checkpoints in 95 percent of trials, ABC News has learned.

The series of tests were conducted by Homeland Security Red Teams who pose as passengers, setting out to beat the system.

According to officials briefed on the results of a recent Homeland Security Inspector General’s report, TSA agents failed 67 out of 70 tests, with Red Team members repeatedly able to get potential weapons through checkpoints.

In one test an undercover agent was stopped after setting off an alarm at a magnetometer, but TSA screeners failed to detect a fake explosive device that was taped to his back during a follow-on pat down.

Officials would not divulge the exact time period of the testing other than to say it concluded recently.

Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson was apparently so frustrated by the findings he sought a detailed briefing on them last week at TSA headquarters in Arlington, Virginia, according to sources. U.S. officials insisted changes have already been made at airports to address vulnerabilities identified by the latest tests.

“Upon learning the initial findings of the Office of Inspector General’s report, Secretary Johnson immediately directed TSA to implement a series of actions, several of which are now in place, to address the issues raised in the report,” the DHS said in a written statement to ABC News.

Terrorist Suspect Usaamah Abdullah Rahim Shot and Killed by Boston Police & David Wright Was Plotting Terrorist Attacks to Behead Police Officers

TERRORIST SUSPECT WAS PLOTTING TO BEHEAD POLICE … GOOD RIDDANCE.

26 year old Usaamah Abdullah Rahim, who was shot dead by police yesterday, and David Wright were plotting to kill and behead police officers. Usaama Rahim had been under 24 hour surveillance by the Joint Terrorism Task Force, which is comprised of state, local and federal law enforcement agents, when he was shot dead at about 7 a.m. near a CVS in the city’s Roslindale neighborhood in Boston. Rahim produced a military-like knife when he was approached by authorities. The radical Islamist refused to obey police instructions and lunged at the police. Rahim was then shot dead. As per Fox News, the affidavit said one of the officers outside the CVS instructed Rahim to drop his weapon and Rahim responded, “You drop yours.” Tuesday, authorities arrested another suspect, David Wright, at his home in Everett, MA in connection with this terrorist murder plot. Good grief, really … In an effort to calm the Muslim community, the police said that the incident was recorded on surveillance video and that they decided to show it to community leaders, including Muslim leaders, in the interest of transparency. UNREAL. What ever happened to in the United States … WE KILL TERRORISTS,

“We believe the intent was to behead a police officer,” one official told The Boston Globe. “We knew the plot had to be stopped. They were planning to take action Tuesday.”

Rahim, Wright and an unidentified third person met Sunday on a Rhode Island beach to discus plans, the affidavit, which was released Wednesday, said. Wright, who waived his Miranda rights, told the FBI the plans included an attack on a victim in another state, the court papers said. Hours prior to the shooting, Rahim told Wright he had changed plans and was going to “go after” the “boys in blue,” the court papers said.

NBC News:

A terrorism suspect alleged to have been plotting a beheading was not shot in the back when he was killed by police in Boston, as his family claimed, community leaders said Wednesday after police took the unusual step of showing them video of the encounter.

Usaamah Abdullah Rahim, 26, was killed Tuesday morning after he was stopped for questioning. The FBI said Wednesday that Rahim was the subject of a terrorism investigation into an alleged plot to kill law enforcement officers sometime this week.

Boston police said Rahim threatened them with a military-style knife as officers ordered him to stand down Tuesday morning in the parking lot of a CVS pharmacy in Boston’s Roslindale neighborhood. As they retreated, Rahim continued to move forward and was shot three times in the front of his body, police said.

Terror Suspect Usaama Rahim, Shot Dead By FBI & Boston Police After Refusing to Drop Military-Style Knife (Update: Brother of Boston Imam Ibrahim Rahim, Claims Brother Shot in Back)(Update: Second Suspect David Wright [Dawud Sharif Abdul Khaliq] Arrested)

WILL THE LEFT AND LIBERAL MSM CALL THIS AN UNJUSTIFIED TERRORIST SHOOTING, WHAT’S NEXT, DO TERRORIST LIVES MATTER?

An armed individual, being tracked by Boston police and the FBI counterterrorism unit was shot dead yesterday in Roslindale, MA when he refused to drop his weapon, a military-style knife, and came at police in an aggressive manner.  The man shot was the 26 year old brother of Boston Imam Ibrahim Rahim, who claims he was shot 3 times in the back. For the record, The Boston Globe reports that Usaama was shot twice, once in the chest and once in the stomach. Also police sources state, Usaama had been radicalized by ISIS propaganda and may have been preparing an attack on law enforcement.

From the Jawa Report, the family of Usaama is crying racism and Islamophobia and claiming Usaama was ‘shot in the back’. Usaama was a grievance hustler’s twofer. Imagine that, a completely different story from a criminal and in this case an individual being tracked by counter-terrorism. Wow, will this give rise to #Terrorist Lives Matter?

An armed man in his 20s being surveilled by the FBI counterterrorism unit was shot and killed by an FBI agent and a Boston police officer in Roslindale this morning, according to Boston Police Commissioner William Evans.

“He was on foot, under surveillance,” Evans said. “The officers have been surveilling him and again they wanted to speak to him … and he turned and our officers gave several commands for him to drop the weapon and unfortunately he came at the officers and they did what they were trained to do and that’s never an easy decision for any officer to make.”

One FBI agent and one BPD officer fired, FBI Special Agent in Charge Vincent B. Lisi said.

Evans said the suspect was wielding a large military-style black knife that he could have “done a lot of damage” with.

“I think our officers tried their best with the FBI to try to convince him to put down the knife but he didn’t leave us a choice,” Evans said. “It’s an active investigation with the joint terrorism task force … It’s very fluid it’s ongoing, but we have one male shot and as you can see it is a very active scene.”

The Boston Globe – Man shot in Roslindale was under 24-hour surveillance.

Usaama Rahim, 26, had made threats against law enforcement, according to two law enforcement officials with knowledge of the case. Officials declined to explain what had led to the ongoing antiterrorism task force investigation or detail its scope, although they said it had been going on for a while.

“We believed he was a threat,” Boston Police Commissioner William B. Evans said. “He was someone we were watching for quite a time. The level of alarm brought us to question him today. I don’t think anybody expected the reaction we got out of him.”

Rahim allegedly wielded the knife after being approached on Washington Street in Roslindale by task force members. Evans said the officers did not have their guns drawn when they approached.

UPDATE I: Man arrested in Everett in connection with terrorism investigation.

A man was arrested in Everett in relation to a Joint Terrorism Task Force investigation.

In Everett, police blocked off Linden Street, unsettling neighbors, and officers entered a home there late Tuesday afternoon.

Just after midnight, authorities confirmed that they arrested David Wright, who will face federal charges in court on Wednesday. Officials said the investigation was potentially an “ISIS inspired plot to harm law enforcement officials.”

UPDATE II: Boston terror probe widens after police arrest suspect.

A Massachusetts man is in custody in connection with Tuesday’s shooting of a man police say was radicalized by Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS) propaganda, reports CBS News correspondent Jeff Pegues.

Police led the man, David Wright, out of an Everett home late Tuesday, linking his arrest to the terror investigation of Usaama Rahim.

Just 14 miles away, investigators say, Rahim had pulled out a knife and waved it at officers in Boston. Moments later, police fired, shooting and killing him. He was under 24-hour surveillance at the time he was killed.

“We believed he was a threat,” Boston Police Commissioner William Evans said.

Evans says the shooting was caught on nearby surveillance cameras, and the video shows police guns weren’t drawn at first.

UPDATE III: Police seek third person in Usaamah Rahim’s Boston terror plot.

Rahim, 26, and Wright, 25, were apparently tight — Rahim called him his nephew on Facebook, where he thanked him for attending his wedding. Both of them used aliases on Facebook. Rahim went by “Abu Sufyaan” and referred to Wright as “Dawud Sharif Abdul-Khaliq.”

And they spoke in coded language, too, the FBI said, but Rahim’s meaning in recorded phone conversations with Wright seemed obvious to agent Joseph Galietta, who listened in.

Rahim would come out swinging with a knife soon to kill police officers — probably Tuesday, Wednesday at the latest, Galietta said in an affidavit.

“I’m just going to, ah, go after them, those boys in blue. Cause, ah, it’s the easiest target,” Rahim told Wright, according to the affidavit.

Watch the Phoenix, AZ Mosque Protest LIVE (VIDEO)

Watch the Phoenix, AZ Mosque Protest,  Freedom of Speech Rally and a Draw Mohammed contest … LIVE (VIDEO)

Good grief, could the commentary from the media being any more bias against. They are talking about putting police against the people and comparing this to protests in Baltimore and Ferguson. Note to the bias media, even FOX news in Phoenix, it is black America vs. police, not white folk. These media types are upset that the protesters have guns. UNREAL.

Protest at Mosque

To watch and listen to the two women who are providing the commentary is simply amazing that they are discussing that their news agency discussed how not to cover it. Note to the two women, you two would be second class citizens in Shariah law.

The MSM is asking to find common ground and that Islam is not about violence when every terrorist event is just another example that Islam is not a religion of Peace. Sorry folks, but Islam is the most intolerant religion that exists, its the only one that calls for the death of infidels.
