    Last week, Florida narrowly dodged a mass casualty terror attack when the FBI arrested a convicted jihadist who had recently completed a prison sentence and used his new freedom to plot. The FBI’s May 23 arrest of Tampa resident and U.S. citizen Muhammed Momtaz Al-Azhari undoubtedly averted a terrible massacre, one he planned to model after the June 2016 Pulse Nightclub killing of 49 mostly gay patrons by his jihadist hero Omar Mateen. But blood that is spared, just as much as blood actually spilled, should be sufficient to finally push Congress and the White House to address the recidivism...

    ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. (AP) - A Florida man is charged with providing material support to the Islamic State extremist group, including attempting to buy multiple weapons and scouting potential targets for an attack in the Tampa Bay area, federal prosecutors said Wednesday. A criminal complaint charges Muhammed Momtaz Al-Azhari, a 23-year-old U.S. citizen, with attempting to provide material support or resources to a designated foreign terrorist organization. The charge carries a potential 20-year prison term. **SNIP** According to the affidavit, Al-Azhari scouted a number of targets in the Tampa Bay region, including beaches, parks and even the Tampa FBI field...

    Six terrorists who carried out attacks were on the FBI's radar previously. The Justice Department's internal government watchdog released a report Wednesday identifying what it described as significant issues with how the FBI handled investigations of extremists based in the U.S. who either sought or successfully carried out attacks against Americans. The report from DOJ Inspector General Michael Horowitz scrutinized how agents investigated so-called 'homegrown violent extremists,' or HVE, and found several instances where individuals who went on to carry out attacks had been previously identified by the FBI but had their cases closed with no further action. "Since September...

    Three years ago today, 49 men headed to a thriving gay nightclub in Orlando, unaware it was the last thing they would ever do. The next morning, our nation would be united in grief and horror at the 49 lives that would be taken that night in a carefully calculated plot by a follower of a demonic religion. That shooter, who carried out what at the time was the worst shooting in US history, thought that the death and carnage he created would bring glory to his false god. What he never counted on was the way God would work...

    The veteran FBI agent and a local sheriff’s deputy took no chances when they got a credible tip about a potential terrorist. In a joint operation, they ran his name through a maze of federal criminal and terrorism databases and scrutinized his telephone records for suspicious contacts. Without a warrant, they couldn’t read his emails or listen to his calls. But they watched him from unmarked vehicles to track his daily routine and to see whom he met. They deployed two confidential informants more than a dozen times to secretly record his conversations. They interviewed him twice and convinced him...

    Pulse owner Barbara Poma has established a nonprofit to open a memorial and museum at the site. About $14 million has been raised for the $50 million project. The permanent memorial and museum are scheduled to open in 2022. ORLANDO — Only days before the third anniversary of the worst attack on gay people in the U.S., members of central Florida’s congressional delegation said Monday they were introducing legislation that would designate as a national memorial the gay nightclub where 49 people were massacred by a supporter of the Islamic State. U.S. Reps. Darren Soto and Stephanie Murphy, both Democrats,...

    Declaring they’ve found freedom from homosexual and transgender practices, an estimated 200 men and women from across the nation engaged in the second annual “Freedom March” in Washington, D.C. “Look at this! This is amazing! They say we don’t exist!” said author and documentary producer M.J. Nixon, a March co-founder, as many gathered for a group picture, reported LifeSiteNews. At a rally on the grounds of the Washington Monument, Jeffrey McCall, a former transgender, said none of the participants were forced to change. “It was the power of the Holy Spirit and the grace of Jesus Christ that fell on...

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...

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...

    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...
