Leland Yee: An Anti-Gun Democrat Jihadists Can Love

Posted By Robert Spencer On March 28, 2014 @ 12:25 am In Daily Mailer,FrontPage | No Comments

California State Senator Leland Yee is the very model of a modern public servant.

Yee, a Democrat, has amassed a well-deserved reputation as an anti-gun crusader: shortly after Adam Lanza’s murderous rampage at Sandy Hook Elementary School in December 2012, Yee helped spearhead one of the toughest gun laws in the entire nation, banning the “bullet button” that allows shooters to change magazines on assault weapons quickly and easily. California Governor Jerry Brown vetoed this ban, but Yee remained committed to getting it enshrined in California law. So intent was Yee that Americans should not have various kinds of lethal weapons that he took it upon himself to hook up with international arms traffickers and an Islamic jihad group, in order to sell them millions of dollars worth of automatic weapons and missiles and thereby empty the U.S. of this lethal materiel.

Now that’s the kind of selfless willingness to put the public interest first that is so rare in American politicians today. This anti-gun public servant asked an FBI agent whom he thought was an international arms trafficker to give him a shopping list of weapons he wanted in exchange for $2,000,000 in cash, which was apparently to go to Yee’s campaign for California Secretary of State.

And why not? How urgently California needs Leland Yee! How many other anti-gun officials would be willing to take it upon themselves to rid their state of guns, by facilitating their shipment out of the country altogether? This wasn’t just a token gesture: Yee recounted that he told the undercover agent that some heavy weaponry was available: “I told him about the rockets and things like that.”

Yee was determined to make it happen. According to the agent’s affidavit, Yee’s fundraising chief asked for a donation to Yee’s campaign, in exchange for which he promised that Yee would “facilitate a meeting” between an arms dealer and the supposed arms trafficker, so that the trafficker could “purchase a large number of weapons to be imported through the Port of Newark, New Jersey.” At a meeting during these negotiations, Yee “discussed certain details of the specific types of weapons [the agent] was interested in buying and importing.”

Yee boasted that he had “an unidentified Filipino associate who was supplying ‘heavy’ weapons to rebel groups in the Philippines.” The Senator explained that “Mindanao was largely populated by Muslim rebel groups who were fighting the federal government. Yee continued by saying the Muslim rebels had no problem ‘kidnapping individuals, killing individuals, and extorting them for ransom.” When the undercover agent asked him which Muslim organization he meant, Yee answered: “M.I.L.F.”

That’s the Moro Islamic Liberation Front (MILF), the Islamic group in that wants to establish an Islamic state in the southern Philippines, and to that end last September took over four Christian towns, terrorizing the residents and murdering six, wounding 24, and murdered six more people in a restaurant bombing last summer. The MILF has been waging jihad against the Philippine government for years, and Filipino authorities appear to be weary of the whole mess and ready to give the jihadis what they want, up to and including an autonomous region in which they can impose Sharia. However, taking a cue from the “Palestinians,” the MILF keeps ratcheting up its demands, stymieing peace talks and keeping the central government on the defensive.

This is the group that Leland Yee apparently wanted to arm. Automatic weapons are in his view apparently no good on the streets of South Central LA, but just fine in the jungles of Mindanao in the cause of Islam. This doesn’t mean, of course, that Leland Yee is a true believer in jihad, or a Muslim at all. There is no indication whatsoever that he is.

He is just another corrupt pol who wanted to make a buck. And in this age when Islamic jihadists and supremacists are awash with cash, the temptation can be too much for corrupt and short-sighted Infidels.

Yee, according to the agent’s affidavit, “stated he was unhappy with his life and said, ‘There is a part of me that wants to be like you [...] Just be a free agent out there.’ Senator Yee told [the agent] that he wanted to hide out in the Philippines.” 

Yet had he realized this dream and gotten to the Philippines, the Moro Islamic Liberation Front would not have spared Yee himself, even if this deal had gone through. If he had then proved useful to their Islamic cause as a hostage or a dead body, that would have been it for him, despite his services to them. Such is the fate of all those who cooperate with Islamic supremacists and jihadists.

But some Infidels never learn. As the story of the selfless public servant Leland Yee proves yet again, there will always be some who put their narrow self-interest above their nation and their people. And always some Islamic jihadists willing to make the deal, and buy from them the scimitar they will ultimately use to behead them.

Apparently, Yee has $70,000+ in campaign debt. I wonder if there shouldn’t be some kind of law to prevent politicians from borrowing so much money to fund their political campaigns.

That’s nothing! He’d only have to traffic about 500 AK-47s to net that much...

I think I read that he has about a million dollars in mortgage debt too. His salary is ~$90,526/year.

No doubt Holder will find some way to get his ideological twin off the hook.

I don't normally listen to Michael Savage. I had to leave work early yesterday, and my radio is tuned to the local AM talk-radio station for the local guys, traffic and weather.

Savage was still on when I left. He had Alex Jones on. I know Jones is usually out there with respect to many things. That being said, Jones mentioned that the weapons could actually be traced to local Jihadi camps in California (much like the facilities discussed here on FR that were known to exist in New York state and other places). I've never heard even a rumor of camps in CA, but wouldn't be surprised if they did exist. Can anyone corroborate what Jones said? He gave no sources, but stated it as if it was a known fact.

He should be charged with aiding terrorist organizations and sent to GITMO, or be put to death.

That would cause liberals to break out in a cold sweat!

HOW DEMOCRATS GET AND KEEP PUBLIC OFFICE--101: California Democrat, State Sen Leland Yee, discussed w/ an undercover FBI agent about supplying terroristic- style weapons worth $500,000 to $2.5 million, including shoulder-fired automatic weapons and exchange for campaign contributions.

Sen Lee showed the FBI agent the entire process of how to get those weapons from a Muslim separatist group in the Philippines into the United States (according to the FBI affidavit).

Democrat Yee's alleged crimes also include:

<><> wire fraud,

<><> money laundering,

<><> corruption in office,

<><> bribery,

<><> alleged murder-for-hire plots targeting a political consultant who apparently crossed Yee,

<><>international weapons trafficking conspiracy in exchange for campaign contributions to Yee.


LESSON REFERENCE: Sen Yee's Democratic Playbook---plotting w/ terrorists to advance his political ambitions---- is widely used in Democrat circles.

Former Pres bill Clinton was grinning like a simpering fool at the annual meeting of the tax-exempt "Clinton Global Initiative Foundation" few months back.. Notwithstanding the bombshell news that (1) the Clintons had employed a Muslim Brotherhood activist....and, (2) the Clinton Foundations were outed by the NY Times for their shady dealings and runaway spending.

Gehad al Haddad (above), Muslim Brotherhood activist AND former Clinton ready to carry out presidential orders. Gehad is currently sitting in a nice comfy Egyptian jail as we type. Gehad al Haddad was a Muslim Brotherhood spox--while simultaneously working at Hillary and Bill's tax-exempt foundation.

Gehad was arrested by the Egyptian military for inciting violence AT THE SAME TIME he was a Clinton employee. Gehad knows plenty about the way the M/B uses tax-exempts for money-laundering (to finance terror activities against America).


THE CLINTON-MUSLIM TERRORISM CONNECTION --- The Muslim terrorist was working at the Clinton Foundation AND conducting terrorist activities at the same time. Gehad al Haddad's intimacy w/ the Clintons explains why they remade themselves into the hallowed "Clinton Family Foundation."

The Clintons doing their "Holy Family" act.

NOTE The Clintons' shady foundation financing is unveiled in a recent NYT expose of Clinton corruption, greed, entitlement, nepotism, cronyism. Actions Billy took as president now serve to fuel hefty contributions to the foundation.

The Clintons' shady tax-exempt modalities are unveiled in the recent NYT investigative story. Corruption, greed, entitlement, nepotism, cronyism. The Clintons didn't have a pot to *** in in Arkansas---never even had a home to call their own. Now they're multi-millionaires.......with hundreds of millions in donations from dubious sources financing Hillary's ambitions and Bill's ego-driven obsession for being in the limelight.


There needs to be a thorough going-over of the three tax-exempt Clinton Foundations and their assorted money-grabbing derivations.

We need to know who pays/funds the Clinton's lifestyle/political ambitions---- especially b/c Hillary is running for prez. It is important to know to whom the Clinton's are truly indebted.

NY POST EXCERPT ----The Bill Clinton Foundation has spent more than $50 million on travel expenses — Bill Clinton’s foundation has spent more than $50 million on travel expenses since 2003, an analysis of the nonprofit’s tax forms reveal.....includes $4.2 million in 2011 for the William J. Clinton Foundation (to which Hillary and Chelsea are attached); $730,000 for the Clinton Global Health Initiative; and $7.2 million for the Clinton Health Action Initiative (CHAI).

Cong Issa (Rep-Cali) blundered badly, coming to the defense of Sen Di/Fi (Dim-Cali)just before the Yee scandal broke.

Di---Senate Intel Committee head---whined about the CIA looking through her computers and taking documents. In light of the Yee scandal, this has more resonance now than when she began her whining. Seems Di knows how to get ahead of a scandal.

Just wondering. Did Di use her access to valuable US security data improperly? Is hubby cutting new deals w/ the Chi/Coms? Hubby made millions in China deals in past years. How'd he do that?


Di has a habit of mouthing off and helping criminals......before she was a US Senator, she was Mayor when the Zodiak killer was rampaging the area.

Mayor Di actually went on TV and showed viewers the shoes the cops told her the killer was wearing. Naturally, the Z/K got rid of the shoes......and more people got killed thanks to Di's utter stupidity.


NOTE: Bill Clinton was just traveling in China...panhandling for donations to his tax-exempt "foundations" (which finance Hillary's ambitions). Nice to know who the Clintons are beholden Hillary eyes 2016.

How was Clinton able to penetrate the Great Wall of China---did Di/Fi give him any assistance?
