    Islamic Terrorists and Gay Targets The real issue isn’t homophobia, it’s Islam. June 22, 2018 Daniel Greenfield 20 Daniel Greenfield, a Shillman Journalism Fellow at the Freedom Center, is an investigative journalist and writer focusing on the radical left and Islamic terrorism. A few days before the second anniversary of the Pulse massacre in Orlando, Florida, two Muslim terrorists were arrested in a plot to attack gay targets in France. There may be no connection beyond coincidence, but the media would have normally made one anyway if it weren’t avoiding the subject. The aftermath of Omar Mateen’s killing spree was...

    BEFORE OMAR MATEEN charged into the Pulse nightclub in Orlando and killed 49 people in June 2016, the FBI conducted two so-called assessments, the bureau’s term of art for limited national security investigations that do not require probable cause. In both cases, the bureau determined that Mateen was not a potential terrorist. During the attack, while barricaded in a bathroom, Mateen suggested to hostage negotiators that he had committed the nightclub massacre in response to U.S. airstrikes in Syria and Iraq, including one that killed senior Islamic State member Abu Wahib. “You have to tell America to stop bombing Syria...

    Shortened title. Full title: ike Cernovich: “Comey & Muller Knew” About Pulse Massacre, “The Media Is Ignoring It, This Is The Biggest Story Today!" It was just revealed that Seddique Mateen, father of the gunman who slaughtered 49 people in the Pulse nightclub attack, was an FBI informant for 11 years. On Saturday, Assistant US Attorney Sara Sweeney sent the defense an email stating Seddique Mateen was a confidential FBI informant from 2005 through 2016; the email also revealed the elder Mateen is currently being investigated for transferring sums of money to Turkey and Afghanistan. These transfers came just a...

    Attorneys for Noor Salman are calling for a dismissal of charges or a mistrial after they say new details from prosecutors reveal that Pulse gunman Omar Mateen’s father was an FBI informant who is currently under a criminal investigation. According to a motion filed by the defense, Assistant US Attorney Sara Sweeney sent an email on Saturday to the defense — in the middle of the Salman’s trial — that stated Seddique Mateen was a confidential FBI source from 2005 through June 2016. The email also stated that Seddique Mateen is being investigated for money transfers to Turkey and Pakistan...

    Jury selection begins Thursday in the trial of the Pulse shooter's widow. Jury selection is under way this morning in downtown Orlando in the case against Noor Salman, the widow of Pulse nightclub shooter Omar Mateen. Salman, 31, is charged with aiding and abetting her husband in supporting a foreign terror organization, the Islamic State, and obstructing justice. Her husband was killed by police hours after he began shooting in the Orlando club June 12, 2016, killing 49 people and wounding dozens more. About 5 a.m. Bob Kunst of Miami Beach parked across the federal courthouse in Orlando, armed with...

    “Isis executioner who threw gay men off buildings bribed his way out of prison in ‘minutes,'” by Josh Robbins, International Business Times, January 9, 2018: A notorious Isis henchman accused of beheading gay men and throwing them off rooftops has escaped from police custody just minutes after being arrested in Iraq. Abu Omer – known as “White Beard” thanks to his impressive facial hair – was arrested in Mosul at the beginning of the year. Local and international media reported his detention but now it seems that the sadistic jihadi was back on the road in no time at all....

    The wife of Omar Mateen, who committed a massacre in the Pulse nightclub in 2016, reportedly told the FBI that she knew about his plot beforehand — and did nothing to stop it. Noor Salman — whose husband gunned down 49 people in the club — told investigators that she “knew that her husband was going to attack the Pulse nightclub” when he left the house on the night of June 11 last year, according to documents obtained by USA Today. “My fears had come true and he did what he said he was going to do,” Salman said, according...
  • BIG SURPRISE: FBI Previously Interviewed NYC Truck Terrorist Saipov As Part of Terror Probe

    We can hardly be surprised to learn the FBI previously interviewed New York City truck terrorist Sayfullo Habibullaevic Saipov for a terror-related investigation. The FBI interviewed Saipov in 2015, according to sources. We believe it was Bureau agents in Florida but we are checking. Saipov previously lived in Florida before moving to Paterson, NJ. This story seems to be taking on similar FBI undertones of Orlando jihadist Omar Mateen who was interviewed by the FBI four times prior to killing 50 people at the Pulse nightclub in the name of Islam. This story is developing.

    Full title: "As FBI investigates Vegas attack, remember its FAILED investigations of Orlando jihadi mass murderer, Boston bombers, Garland jihadis, Boston beheaders" If previous FBI history of jihad terror investigations is any indication, it’s that they are incompetent or complicit. Whatever their motives, they are deeply compromised, and clearly the worst agency to lead this Vegas investigation. The Orlando jihadi who opened fire on gay nightclub revelers at the Pulse Nightclub called 911 during the attack and pledged his allegiance to the Islamic State. The FBI investigated the Orlando mass shooter for 10 months and found nothing. The FBI was...

    Long time CTH readers will note we extended well over a year of benefit-of-the-doubt to the motives of former FBI Director James Comey with regard to the severity of his politicized nature and disposition. Throughout the entire Clinton investigation we remained ambivalent to Comey’s motives. Indeed it wasn’t until after the Pulse nightclub terrorist attack when Comey obtusely noted the FBI had been contacted (prior to the attack) about the sketchy behavior of Omar Mateen by a ‘random concerned citizen’ -and our finding that the actual ‘citizen’ was the far more substantive St Lucie county sheriff Ken Mascara– that we...

    The widow of a shooter who killed 49 people in a Florida nightclub last year is reportedly on her way to Orlando, Fla., to face federal charges of aiding her husband in the attack. Salman's lawyer, Charles Swift of the Texas-based Constitutional Law Center for Muslims in America, said Wednesday it will be up to the Marshals Service to decide when she will be transferred. The charges are aiding her husband in providing material support to a foreign terrorist organization, namely the Islamic State; and obstructing justice by misleading local police and the FBI when she was questioned in the...

    The wife of Orlando nightclub gunman Omar Mateen was arrested by the FBI on Monday in connection with the mass shooting, officials said. Noor Salman was taken into custody in California, where her family lives, but the case is filed in Florida, where her husband massacred 49 people at the Pulse nightclub in June. "I can confirm the arrest did occur," Attorney General Loretta Lynch said on MSNBC. This is a matter that we continue to take very seriously," she said.

    ORLANDO - While the political world was wrapped up in the commotion around Monday night's debate between Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump, Clinton's running mate Tim Kaine was in a wildly different setting very far away, marking and mourning one of the nation's worst tragedies up close. The Virginia senator was in Orlando for campaign events, and decided to make a quiet, unannounced stop at the site of the Pulse Nightclub shooting, a visit that aides say he felt very strongly about.

    MATEEN: "I shot up the Pulse Club because I am a member of ISIS." LYNCH: "No you're not." MATEEN:"Wait, what? Yes I am..." LYNCH: "No, this has nothing to do with Muslim terrorism. I have no idea why you did this, but it wasn't radical Islam." MATEEN: "WHAT!? Did you even read what I told the 911 operator? I gave explicit Quranic justification. This is jihad, a holy crusade against pagans, blasphemers, and homosexuals." LYNCH: "No, this is definitely not a Muslim thing. You are not a true Muslim, and you defame a great religion by saying so." MATEEN: "Huh!?...

    Liberal comic Bill Maher is a Bernie Sanders supporter, though he could live with a Hillary Clinton presidency, too. But the host of HBO's "Real Time with Bill Maher" writes in The Hollywood Reporter that Democrats risk losing the White House in November over one issue: refusing to use the term "Islamic terrorism." [...] Maher noted that 40 countries have some version of Islamic Sharia law, and said he is mystified why liberals feel no need to oppose it. ...

Bill Maher knows, as you can see in the video below, that the refusal by the Democrats to call out terrorism for what it really is could cost them the general election this year. Despite this outspoken concern by Maher, Booker...
