Active Duty Hawaii Soldier, Ikaika Erik Kang, Arrested for Trying to Provide Material Support & Training to ISIS

 Sgt. Ikaika Erik Kang Arrested in Hawaii, Pledging Material Support to ISIS

34 year old Sgt. Ikaika Erik Kang, a decorated veteran of two deployments to the Middle East, was arrested by an FBI SWAT team at the Schofield Barracks in Honolulu, Hawaii for trying to provide material support and training to ISIS. According to the criminal complaint, Kang “attempted to provide material support to ISIS by providing both classified military documents, and other sensitive but unclassified military documents, to persons he believed would pass the documents to ISIS.” The FBI said that no classified materials actually ended up in the hands of the terrorist group. Kang swore an oath of loyalty to ISIS leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi on Saturday, shortly before his arrest. After doing so, Kang allegedly told an undercover agent that he wanted to use his rifle to “kill a bunch of people.”

His father is shocked by the allegations and believes his son may be suffering from PTSD from his tours overseas. According to his military service record, Ikaika Kang was deployed to Iraq in 2010, and served in Afghanistan in 2014.

An active duty Hawaii soldier who was arrested for allegedly trying to provide material support and training to the Islamic State told an undercover federal agent Saturday that he wanted to kill “a bunch of people.

A criminal complaint alleges that Ikaika Erik Kang, 34, was arrested at his Waipahu apartment Saturday, shortly after pledging his loyalty to ISIS and making the threatening statement.

“A probable cause arrest was made in the interest of public safety,” Honolulu FBI Special Agent in Charge Paul D. Delacourt said Monday, after Kang’s first appearance in federal court.

He added, “We believe that Kang was a lone actor and was not associated with others who present a threat to Hawaii.”

Threatening Letter & White Powder Sent to Donald Trump’s Son, Eric Trump & His Wife (VIDEO)

SICK, JUST SICK …

Eric Trump, the second oldest son of Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump, was sent a letter in the mail that contained a white powdery substance and a threatening letter. Really folks, this sent by the same people who claims that Donald Trump uses violent and inflammatory rhetoric on the campaign trail. But terroristic threats and activities are perfectly okay, right? The Police and FBI are investigating the suspicious letter that was post marked from Massachusetts. I don’t care what you think of some body, this should be denounced by all and those responsible arrested and prosecuted.

The Secret Service, FBI and New York Police Department are investigating what sources tell CBS News is a threatening piece of mail sent to Donald Trump’s son, Eric Trump.

The mail, sent to Eric Trump at his posh Manhattan residence at 100 Central Park South, also known as Trump Parc East, was opened by his wife Thursday.

A source close to the investigation said the letter had a Massachusetts postmark and warned that if Donald Trump doesn’t withdraw from the race for the Republican presidential nomination — paraphrasing — harm will come to the kids.

Have you Heard “An American with A Remington” by Larry Gatlin and Billy Dean? (VIDEO)

 ”AN AMERICAN WITH A REMINGTON” … 

By any chance have you heard the song, “An American with a Remington”? If not, take a listen below and let us know what you think. Its a song by country greats Larry Gatling of the Gatling Brothers fame and Billy Dean. The song was written in response to radical Islamic terror attacks and innocents having their heads cut off at the hands of ISIS. As Larry Gatlin said, “I really pissed us off”.  From Billboard comes the Gatlin Brothers defending their so-called controversial song about guns. Please, its not controversial, people in this country have become too gutless and sensitive and are offended about everything.

Gatlin — who is a frequent guest commentator on the Fox News network — also pushes a few buttons with the candid “An American With a Remington,” which the singer co-wrote with Billy Dean. “We’d been watching TV one night and saw the bad guys burning people alive in cages and cutting their heads off because they wouldn’t convert to Islam. We didn’t like that. A week later, he said he had an idea for a song. We wrote it and put it on Facebook and got 16 million hits. Then, we decided to let some friends of ours do it because they were a bigger act than us, but their record company wouldn’t let them put it out. I was mad about it for about five seconds until I realized that we were supposed to record it.

I think this pretty much says it all for how most Americans feel when it comes to deal with terrorism and those that what to affect out way of life. Most Americans are live and let live. But if you screw with us, you will feel our wrath. One of the lines from the song goes, “Hey, I wanna live in peace, but you come after my family, You’ll be staring down the barrel of my gun An American with a Remington.”

GOD BLESS AMERICA!!!

An American With A Remington

By Billy Dean and Larry Gatlin

Dear worthless, gutless cowards
You say I must convert or die
Well I guess you gonna have to kill me
Least you’re gonna have to try

Does Lexington and Concorde
Mean anything to you?
How about Bunker Hill, San Juan Hill
Or the Island Peleliu?

You’re not the first who’s ever tried to kill me
What makes you think I would turn and run?
You underestimate these United States
And the righteous might of people standing as one

We exist to fan the flame of freedom
We’ve fought and bled and died, we overcome
Hey, I wanna live in peace, but you come after my family
You’ll be staring down the barrel of my gun

An American with a Remington

Now that rifle helped put food on our table
When my Daddy came home from Viet Nam disabled
And like him I answered the call
And I was ready to give my all
In the mountains of Afghanistan

You’re not the first who’d ever want to kill me
What makes you think I would turn and run (I won’t turn and run)
You underestimate these United States
And the righteous might of people standing as one

We exist to fan the flame of freedom
We’ve fought and bled and died, we’ve overcome
I wanna live in peace, but you come after my family
You’ll be staring down the barrel of my gun

An American with a Remington
An American with a Remington
Yours truly
An American with a Remington

You’re not the first who’s ever tried to kill me…

Of course and then there is Barack Obama, Hillary Clinton and Democrats who want to take away your Second Amendment rights and take away your Remington’s.

Donald J. Trump Statement on Preventing Muslim Immigration … When They Leave Our Country to Fight For ISIS, They Can Never Come Back (VIDEO)

TRUMP DOES IT AGAIN … CAUSES THE MSM TO LOSE THEIR MINDS … “We can be politically correct, or we can be stupid.”

Donald Trump calls for the total and complete shutdown of Muslims entering the United States until our country’s representatives can figure out what is going on. Whether this is Constitutional or not is one thing, but Trump’s comments have the LEFT and the establishment GOP’s hearts a flutter. But the real question is whether this kind of sentiment resonates with the people. Americans are more and more tired of the PC and do nothing, go along to get along policies of both parties that have America less safe. One thing is for certain, if Obama wants to make the reference to common sense gun control, I believe We the People are calling for common sense immigration and border control and the proper vetting of individuals coming into the US.

I doubt whether Trump means “all” Muslims but it is a PR grab that will suck up all the oxygen in the political room and will resonate with a voting electorate tired of the establishment.  As stated at Hot Air, “It’s a perfect Trumpian play, though. It’s highly politically incorrect; the media will go positively batsh*t over it; the rest of the GOP field, especially his new rival Ted Cruz, will squirm about how to respond; and the more heat Trump takes from all sides, the more his fans will love him for it.”

Before you listen to how his comments are spun in the media, take a listen below and you decide.

Donald Trump calls for a total and complete shutdown of all Muslims from entering USA …
until our country’s representatives can figure out what the hell is going on.

The statement from Donald Trump:

Donald J. Trump is calling for a total and complete shutdown of Muslims entering the United States until our country’s representatives can figure out what is going on. According to Pew Research, among others, there is great hatred towards Americans by large segments of the Muslim population. Most recently, a poll from the Center for Security Policy released data showing “25% of those polled agreed that violence against Americans here in the United States is justified as a part of the global jihad” and 51% of those polled, “agreed that Muslims in America should have the choice of being governed according to Shariah.” Shariah authorizes such atrocities as murder against non-believers who won’t convert, beheadings and more unthinkable acts that pose great harm to Americans, especially women.

Mr. Trump stated, “Without looking at the various polling data, it is obvious to anybody the hatred is beyond comprehension. Where this hatred comes from and why we will have to determine. Until we are able to determine and understand this problem and the dangerous threat it poses, our country cannot be the victims of horrendous attacks by people that believe only in Jihad, and have no sense of reason or respect for human life. If I win the election for President, we are going to Make America Great Again.” – Donald J. Trump

UPDATE I: Ted Cruz: I Would Not Ban All Muslims from Entering the Country.

“Well that, that is not my policy. I’ve introduced legislation in the Senate that would put in place a three year moratorium on refugees coming from countries where ISIS or

Al Qaeda can control a substantial amount of territory. And the reason is that’s where the threat is coming from,” Cruz said.

He continued, “I think that’s the approach we should take and we need a commander and chief who is focused on keeping this nation safe. And the way we do so is focusing in particular on radical Islamic terrorism which is exactly what I intend to do.”

UPDATE II: Trump spokesman Corey Lewandowski confirmed to the AP that the proposal would apply to Muslims who are tourists as well as those seeking immigration visas.

Leslie Allen Merritt Jr. Arrested in Connection with Phoenix Freeway Shootings (VIDEO) (Update: Suspect Says, ‘I’m the wrong guy’)

Arizona Gov. Doug Ducey tweets: ‘We got him!’…

21 year old Leslie Allen Merritt Jr. has been arrested in connection with the recent rash of Phoenix, Arizona highway shootings. Merritt has been named a suspect in at least four of the shootings. The authorities believe that other shootings may be that of copycats. Gov. Doug Ducey first broke the news about the arrest in a tweet just before 7 p.m Friday night., after SWAT team members closed in on the suspect at a Walmart near 59th and Northern avenues. Merritt has not been formally charged but is expected to face a range of charges, such as unlawful discharge of a firearm and aggravated assault, Graves said. Merritt is reported to have a previous had a criminal record. Merritt will be arraigned on Saturday.

With Friday’s arrest of Leslie Allen Merritt Jr., 21, law-enforcement officials said they had a suspect in at least four of the shootings in custody — news that brought relief but not necessarily closure.

Arizona Department of Public Safety Director Frank Milstead said Merritt had been linked to at least four of 11 shootings incidents through a gun he owned.

“The weapon and man we believe was responsible for starting this spree is in custody,” Milstead said late Friday at a hastily called news conference.

Milstead spoke only for a few minutes and would not divulge other details, such as a possible motive.

“Are there others out there? Are there copycats? That is possible,” Milstead said.

Suspected freeway shooter taken into custody.

Ballistics tests linked a weapon owned by the suspect to the first four of the 11 freeway shootings, on Aug. 29 and 31, Milstead said. Investigators had tracked down the weapon at a pawn shop in Phoenix.

Merritt’s Facebook page contains several links to stories about the freeway shootings, as well as several images supporting gun rights and video of him shooting a 9mm handgun.

Before the arrest, Milstead and Maricopa County Attorney Bill Montgomery had labeled the shooter as a domestic terrorist.

Police arrest suspect in string of Phoenix freeway shootings

UPDATE I: Phoenix freeway shooting suspect Leslie Allen Merritt Jr. Says, ‘I’m the wrong guy’.

A landscaper arrested in a series of Phoenix freeway shootings told a judge that authorities have “the wrong guy” as investigators stood by their detective work that traced the gun to the suspect after he took it to a pawn shop.

Leslie Allen Merritt Jr. was charged Saturday with counts including aggravated assault, criminal damage, disorderly conduct, carrying out a drive-by shooting and intentional acts of terrorism.

“All I have to say is I’m the wrong guy. I tried telling the detectives that. My gun’s been in the pawn shop the last two months. I haven’t even had access to a weapon,” he said as he stood handcuffed in a black and white striped jail uniform.

But a charging document released late Saturday night by Maricopa Superior Court said that investigators determined Merritt had not pawned his gun at the time of the incidents.
