A sting operation, which means my brain treads lightly.  In spite of that, you’d have to figure that with a facial countenance like this, he’d be some sort of menace to society.

Though I have to snicker at the fact that four of his five online aliases involve some variant of Mohammed.

And also, that looks like the top part of the WSHH logo tatted on his upper chest.

Really I do.

The last time there were this many BSODs was when people were still using Windows 98.

And also, while everyone’s trying to make sense of Trump’s immigration-related executive orders, trying to figure out what fathomable reason he would have to issue them.  They can’t even…

FBI arrests wife of Orlando nightclub killer Omar Mateen

The FBI on Monday arrested the wife of the gunman in the Pulse Nightclub massacre on charges connected to the shooting rampage, investigators confirmed to Fox News.

The June 2016 shooting, seen as the deadliest in modern U.S. history, killed 49 people and wounded dozens more. Police shot and killed gunman Omar Mateen after a three-hour standoff, during which he pledged allegiance to the Islamic State terror group.

The charges against his wife, 30-year-old Noor Salman, included aiding and abetting his attempts to support ISIS, as well as obstruction of justice.

FBI agents from the bureau’s San Francisco field office picked up Salman outside her home in Rodeo, Calif., law enforcement sources said. She did not resist the arrest.

At least three calls were to 911 and one was to a local news service, during which he pledged his allegiance to ISIS and expressed support for the Boston Marathon bombers, Tamerlan and Dzhokhar Tsarnaev.

Wait what? I thought Omar Mateen did what he did because of generic homophobia and guns. That’s what Congressional Democrats who spent all night yapping and sleeping on the House floor told us. Also I recall something about how we were supposed to be worried about an Islamophobic backlash.

Seriously, the reason why the Democrats and the media went to those lengths is because Trump was dropping major wedges between LGBTQBBQBLTLOL on one side and the Great Religion of Extra Peaceful Peace on the other side, that wedge threatened to cut off the former’s money stream to the party’s war chest.  They had to find a diversion and scream loudly.

“Expressed support for the Boston Marathon bombers.” I wonder if Graham Fuller will ever have enough guilt for his role in that such that he’ll do the honorable thing and kill himself.

Washington, D.C.

For the first time in his Presidency, the Senate has overridden a veto of President Baraq Obama.  With 97 Senate votes, it passed the Sue Saudi bill into law.  The only no vote was Harry Ass Reid, and there were two non-votes, names I don’t yet know.





Actual Terrorism

Reuters:

Journalism based on gossip or rumors is a form of “terrorism” and media that stereotype entire populations or foment fear of migrants are acting destructively, Pope Francis said on Thursday.

Francis, who has often strongly defended the rights of refugees and migrants, said journalism should not be used as a “weapon of destruction against persons and even entire peoples”.

“Neither should it foment fear before events like forced migration from war or from hunger,” he added.

Last year, the right-wing newspaper Libero headlined its story on the Paris attacks that killed about 130 people: “Islamic Bastards”.

Another right-wing newspaper, Il Giornale, headlined a story last year on the chaotic situation in Libya and the risk that militants might sneak into Italy with migrants: “ISIS is coming. Let’s arm ourselves”.

Noticing things is terrorism, but terrorism is just a tragic accident.

I can see that Francis has joined in the Goliath versus David struggle to speak power to truth.
