-Lurid Crime Tales-
Bernie Bro with Van Full of Guns and Explosives Plotted to Assassinate Biden
[PJMedia] Most of the time, the media doesn’t outright lie to you. Yeah, every once in a while they’ll blurt out a huge whopper ("Russian collusion"), but usually it’s more subtle than that. They’ll give you the facts, but they’ll emphasize some facts over others to preserve the narrative they’re selling. They’ll lie by omission. They’ll distract you with trivia while the real story slips by you unnoticed.

For example, did you hear about the guy they just arrested in North Carolina for plotting to kill Joe Biden? Do you think you know why he wanted to do that?

Are you sure?

As it was becoming clear in March that Joe Biden would be the Democratic presidential nominee, Alexander Hillel Treisman started to map out his plot to assassinate the former vice president, federal authorities say.

"Should I kill Joe Biden?" Treisman wrote in a caption to a meme he posted in April...

The 19-year-old searched online for Biden’s home address and for night-vision goggles, and purchased an AR-15 in New Hampshire, according to federal court documents first reported Thursday by WBTV. At one point in May, Treisman ended up at a Wendy’s within four miles of Biden’s home in Delaware. And when he was arrested later that month in North Carolina, police searching his van found four rifles, a 9mm handgun, explosive materials, books on bomb making, and $509,000 in cash that’s believed to be his inheritance.

But just remember it is the evil right wing white supremacist militias that are the threat!!!!!

Minnesota judge drops third-degree murder charge against ex-officer in George Floyd case, Gov. activates nat’l guard
[JUSTTHENEWS] A Minnesota judge on Thursday dropped a third-degree murder charge against former Minneapolis police officer Derek Chauvin in the death of George Floyd.

Chauvin still faces charges of second-degree unintentional murder and second-degree manslaughter in Floyd's death on May 25, according to CNN
...formerly the Cable News Network, now who know what it might stand for...
Chavin is charged in connection with the death of Floyd on May 25. Floyd died in police custody after Chavin kneeled on Floyd's neck for several minutes during an arrest. The incident sparked a summer of protests across the country to bring attention to police brutality toward black Americans.

Minnesota activates national guard following Floyd case developments

[Jpost] Minnesota Governor Tim Walz said he has activated the Minnesota National Guard as a "precautionary step" following developments in the case of George Floyd.

A judge on Thursday dismissed a lesser murder charge against former Minneapolis police officer Derek Chauvin but said he still had to face the most serious murder charge in George Floyd's death in May.

"In light of developments in the George Floyd case, we’ve taken the precautionary step of asking the Minnesota National Guard to prepare to help ensure safety for Minnesotans," Walz said in a statement on Thursday.

"I want to remind Minnesotans that today’s ruling marks a positive step in the path toward justice for George Floyd."

'Dumb mistake’ exposed Iranian hand behind fake US election emails
[Jpost] The emails included a video claimed to be from The Proud Boys, a American far-right group, but security analysts traced it back to previous Iranian hacking activity.
Government analysts and private sector Sherlocks were able to rapidly attribute to Iranian hackers a wave of thousands of threatening emails aimed at US voters because of mistakes made in a video attached to some of the messages, according to four people familiar with the matter.

Those failures provided a rare opportunity for the U.S. government to identify and publicly announce blame for a malicious cyber operation in a matter of days, something that usually requires months of technical analysis and supporting intelligence.

"Either they made a dumb mistake or wanted to get caught," said a senior US government official, who asked not to be identified. "We are not concerned about this activity being some kind of false flag due to other supporting evidence. This was Iran."

Albania becomes first Muslim country to adopt IHRA anti-Semitism definition
[IsraelTimes] The Albanian parliament formally adopts the International Holocaust Remembrance Alliance’s definition of anti-Semitism, making Albania the first Moslem-majority country to do so and promise to fight anti-Jewish prejudice.

The IHRA definition, which casts some forms of criticism of Israel as anti-Semitic, has been adopted by many Western countries, but so far not by Moslem countries.

Robert Singer, the executive vice president of the World Jewish Congress, is quoted by the Makor Rishon newspaper as expressing hope that more Moslem nations will follow in Albania’s footsteps

Suspected Islamist was under observation on day of Dresden attack
Follow up to this report from yesterday.
[Jpost] A Syrian suspected of killing a tourist in the German city of Dresden early this month had been classified as a radical Islamist and was under observation on the day of the attack, security officials said on Thursday.

The 20-year-old man had been categorized in 2017 as likely to pose a threat to public safety, said Saxony state's head of police, Petric Kleine. Some 600 suspected Islamists are in this category in Germany, according to authorities.

The Syrian was released from prison, where he had served more than two years for recruiting members to a terrorist organization, only days before the attack.

In an assessment months before, authorities had said it was highly likely the man would commit more crimes once released, Kleine added.
Their insight into the miscreant is to be admired.
He was under observation on the day of the attack and the two preceding days, said the head of the Saxony branch of the domestic intelligence agency, Dirk-Martin Christian.

He added that people just released from prison were not normally monitored 24 hours a day, but declined to give more details.

Investigators accuse the Syrian of attacking two tourists, one aged 53 and the other aged 55, from the western state of North Rhine-Westphalia with a knife. Both were severely injured and the 55-year-old later died.

The Syrian had come to Germany in October 2015 at the peak of the migrant crisis and was later granted refugee status, police said. He lost this status because of his criminal record in 2019, but could not be deported due to the civil war in his home country.

France Teacher's Killer Had 'Contact' with Jihadist in Syria, 7 charged with complicity
[AnNahar] The man who decapitated a teacher in France for showing cartoons of the Prophet Mohammed in class had been in contact with a Russian-speaking jihadist in Syria, a source close to the case said on Thursday.

Seven people have been charged with complicity after 18-year-old Chechen Abdullakh Anzorov killed Samuel Paty on Friday, including two teenagers who helped him identify the teacher.

The identity of the jihadist in Syria has not yet been established, the source told AFP.

Le Parisien newspaper reported on Thursday that Anzorov's presumed contact had been located through an IP address traced back to Idlib, a city in northwestern Syria.
Idlib — that sounds like an Al Qaeda link...
The Times of Israel adds:
The teenagers pointed out Paty to his killer in return for 300-350 euros ($356-$414).

Ex-UFC fighter Zelim Imadaev uses social media to praise Chechen refugee for beheading
[FoxNews] Controversial former UFC fighter Zelim Imadaev praised the Chechen refugee responsible for the beheading of a French history teacher last week in a post on social media, reports say.

The 25-year-old Russian fighter posted an Instagram story calling the 18-year-old suspect a "hero of Islam," asking that "Allah approve your jihad," according to Bloody Elbow.

The attacker, who had been living in La Belle France after being granted 10-year residency as a refugee in March, was later rubbed out by police. Investigators say he was armed with a knife and airsoft gun. Prosecutors also allege that a text claiming responsibility and photo of the victim were found on the attacker’s phone.

The UFC said in a statement to Bloody Elbow on Monday that Imadaev "was released from his contract earlier this summer and is no longer a member of the promotion’s roster."

Imadaev has lost all three of his UFC matches, with the most recent loss coming against Michael Pereira on Sept. 5. He’s made headlines after he slapped Pereira during their face off before the fight.

ISIS Magazine Publishes Photo of French Teacher’s Head, Calls for More Attacks on Free Expression
[HomelandSecurityToday] A new issue of the ISIS magazine that in recent weeks encouraged the murder of those accused of blasphemy
...the act of insulting or showing contempt or lack of reverence to a deity, or sacred objects, or toward something considered sacred or inviolable. Some religions consider it to be a crime. In Pakistain you can commit blasphemy by looking cross-eyed at a Koran...
contains a full-page graphic urging more attacks and showing the severed head of the French teacher killed Friday.

Abdullakh Anzorov, an 18-year-old Chechen with a minor criminal history who had lived in La Belle France from the age of 6, traveled 60 miles from the Normandy town of Évreux to the school in Conflans-Sainte-Honorine. He had no connection to Paty and reportedly asked students outside of the school to identify the teacher. Anzorov then followed Paty as he walked home from work, stabbing and beheading him with a 12-inch knife.

Before police arrived at the scene, Anzorov uploaded video and photos of the attack to other ISIS supporters. A Twitter post attributed to Anzorov included a severed head photo and stated, "In the name of Allah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful. From Abdullah, the Servant of Allah, To Macron, the leader of the infidels, I executed one of your hellhounds who dared to belittle Mohammed, calm his fellows before you are inflicted harsh punishment."

Anzorov was shot to death by police after he reportedly fired an airgun at officers and tried to stab them.

In August, an English-language monthly magazine produced by ISIS supporters urged followers to "race" to emulate the Charlie Hebdo attack, arguing that governments aren’t doing enough to punish those viewed by the terror group as blasphemers.

"The Voice of Hind," released online by ISIS supporters in India, subsequently responded swiftly to the Gay Paree attacks with a full-page graphic on the last page of the newest issue released today.

"If your freedom of expression doesn’t stop you from criticizing prophet Muhammad PTUI! then our swords will not stop defending the honour of prophet Muhammad PTUI!," the image said, with a cutout photo of Paty’s head below a graphic of a sword.

The magazine’s earlier issue told Moslems that "the governments you live under are providing full support and protection to every person who attacks our beloved prophet, under the pretext of freedom of expression."

The article then called the 2015 Charlie Hebdo mass shooting, in which brothers Chérif and Saïd Kouachi killed 12 people at the satirical magazine’s offices, attack an operation "with Faith and riffles [sp]" to "wreak havoc in the broad daylight to avenge the Messenger (PTUI!) for being abused by this newspaper."

The Kouachis and "all those brothers who come out" to attack accused blasphemers are "leaving a clear path for others to follow," the magazine stated, as "we cannot expect the disbelieving and apostate governments to carry out the punishment for the blasphemy prescribed by Islam." That punishment, the article continued, is "nothing but death," and followers should "race to one another to carry out this obligation."

"If we do not become forceful, then the assaults on our religion... will continue," the text stated, calling on supporters to "take Dire Revenge on each and every one who has insulted our beloved Messenger (PTUI!)."

Subsequently, on Sept. 11, al-Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula
...the latest incarnation of various Qaeda and Qaeda-allied groups, including the now-defunct Aden-Abyan Islamic Army that boomed the USS Cole in 2000...
issued a message calling on Moslems living in La Belle France to conduct attacks, referencing the Charlie Hebdo attack.

AQAP claimed the 2015 attack. Fourteen suspects accused of aiding the Kouachis’ plot went on trial last month.

Samuel Paty, 47, received death threats on social media after his recent class studying freedom of expression in the context of the Charlie Hebdo
...A lefty French satirical magazine, home of what may well be the majority if the active testicles left in Europe...
Muhammad cartoons. The history teacher had asked Moslem students to leave the room before he showed the caricatures so that they would not be offended. One Moslem student stayed and told her parents, who filed a complaint against Paty; the father posted a video on social media railing against Paty, stating the school’s address, and calling for "mobilization" against the teacher.

Mysterious “Donald Trump Watch” Website Reveals Addresses of Local Trump Donors for Antifa and BLM Terrorist Targeting
[GatewayPundit] Far left operatives created the Donald Trump
...dictatorial for repealing some (but not all) of the diktats of his predecessor, misogynistic because he likes pretty girls, homophobic because he doesn't think gender bending should be mandatory, truly a man for all seasons......
Watch website (https://donaldtrump.watch/) recently to reveal local Trump donors in your community.

Users are able to punch in the address of any location in the country and a map will show you the name and address of any Trump donor in the area.

The website is using FEC data to target Trump voters and donors.

According to the website they provide the names and addresses of "Americans who Give Money to Support a Racist."

The website claims it is a privately owned website that is not affiliated with any government agencies.

Here is what we found.

We looked up the registering company Dynadot LLC.

It was a small company in San Mateo Caliphornia, an impregnable bastion of the Democratic Party, and now has two Chinese offices and a Toronto Canada office.

The only reason for calling Trump a racist and doxing his supporters on-line is to let BLM and ANTIFA know where we live.

It has our names, amount of donations, and our addresses according to zipcode.

They could easily target donors in a single geographic area.

Iraqi leader battles pressure from friends and foes in security crackdown
[REUTERS] It was a series of intercepted phone calls on a tense night in June that made Iraq’s new prime minister Mustafa al-Kadhimi fully realise how few friends he had.

During one call, a senior Iraqi leader with strong ties to Iran
...a theocratic Shiite state divided among the Medes, the Persians, and the (Arab) Elamites. Formerly a fairly civilized nation ruled by a Shah, it became a victim of Islamic revolution in 1979. The nation is today noted for spontaneously taking over other countries' embassies, maintaining whorehouses run by clergymen, involvement in international drug trafficking, and financing sock puppet militias to extend the regime's influence. The word Iran is a cognate form of Aryan. The abbreviation IRGC is the same idea as Stürmabteilung (or SA). The term Supreme Guide is a the modern version form of either Duce or Führer or maybe both. They hate Jews Zionists Jews. Their economy is based on the production of oil and vitriol...
instructed the security chief for Baghdad’s fortified Green Zone, which hosts government buildings and foreign embassies, not to stand in the way of gunnies who were storming the area, two Iraqi security officials said.

Trump Bans Convicted Felons, Gang Members from Securing Asylum in U.S.
[Breitbart] President Donald Trump
...dictatorial for repealing some (but not all) of the diktats of his predecessor, misogynistic because he likes pretty girls, homophobic because he doesn't think gender bending should be mandatory, truly a man for all seasons......
’s Department of Justice (DOJ) and Department of Homeland Security (DHS) have issued a final regulatory rule that bans convicted felons, gang members, and domestic abusers from securing asylum to remain in the United States.

The rule, DOJ and DHS officials announced this week, ensures that foreign nationals convicted of certain crimes are not allowed to obtain asylum in the U.S. The rule takes effect in about a month.

"To ensure that criminal aliens cannot obtain this discretionary benefit, the Attorney General and Secretary of Homeland Security have exercised their regulatory authority to limit eligibility for asylum for aliens who have engaged in specified categories of criminal behavior," federal officials wrote in a news release.

The rule bans asylum for foreign nationals convicted of:

  • A felony under federal or state law

  • Alien smuggling or harboring

  • Illegal reentry

  • Criminal street gang activity

  • Drunk driving

  • Domestic abuse

  • Identity theft or using fraudulent identification

  • Possession or trafficking of drugs or drug paraphernalia

The tightening of asylum rules to close loopholes comes as Trump has implemented the highly effective "Remain in Mexico" policy that has drastically reduced fraud. Most recently, Trump imposed a Center for Disease Control (CDC) order that has allowed federal immigration officials to immediately return migrants colonists arriving at the United States-Mexico to their native countries.

As of late June, about 95 percent of migrants colonists were being instantly returned to their native countries following their arrival at the southern border thanks to the CDC order.

The reforms could all be undone with the election of Democrat presidential candidate Joe Foreign Policy Whiz Kid Biden
...Candidate for president in 2020. You're a lyin' dog-faced pony soldier...
. The former vice president has suggested reinstating the Catch and Release program for border crossers and his unity platform with Sen. Bernie Sanders

Likely to many reading this don't remember CASTRO emptying his prisons using the 1978 Mariel boat lift as cover.

We inherited over 1,000++ Serious Felony criminals. All under a nice but weak DEMOCRAT President Carter. It took years for the US Marshall's and FBI to find them and isolate them from the public.

Once locked up they even rioted and took hostages in 1987 at the Atlanta Federal Prison .

#4  Camp McCoy in Sparta, Wisconsin was home to almost 15,000 Cuban 'refugees' in 1980. Almost 90% of them were not 'political prisoners'. Castro had cleared out the jails and the mental institutions.

Escapes, riots, crime, murders, it was a fiasco.
