Aurora theater shooting: Is this a crisis actor?

On July 20, 2012, at a midnight showing of the Batman movie, The Dark Knight Rises, at a Century 16 theater in Aurora, Colorado, a lone gunman shot and killed 12 people and wounded 70.

On August 24, 2015, alleged sole shooter James Holmes was convicted and sentenced to life in prison without the possibility of parole.

Among the 70 who were wounded that night is Marcus Weaver, who sat in the 5th row of the Century theater with his friend . Weaver recounted what happened to 89.3 KPCC:

“Ten minutes into the movie, a smoke bomb went off … we were just perplexed. We thought it was just someone who lit off a smoke bomb … Once the gunman started opening fire on the crowd, it became really apparent it was not a Rocky Horror film show, or any of those pranks they do in theaters. It was a real event, and so something told me to get down on the ground.”

Weaver pulled Rebecca down with him. A few minutes later, he realized she was hit during the first wave of gunfire. When Holmes’ gun jammed, many moviegoers tried to flee. Weaver picked up his friend and started toward the exit. That’s when Holmes shot him in the arm.

“And so I tumbled over and she fell into the seat, and that was the last time I saw my friend Rebecca.”

Weaver didn’t notice he was hit until he made it out of the theater.

“A little girl came up to me and [said], ‘your arm is bleeding.’ And so I looked at my arm, and sure enough, I had two holes in my arm, and blood was just perfusing out of it.”

In an interview with CNN’s Anderson Cooper, despite having been shot in his right shoulder and upper arm, and with his lower arm in a cast, Weaver manages to lift the arm up, waving it around.

Note also the bullet holes in his right upper arm. Do they look like bullet holes to you?

In asking questions, I mean no disrespect to Marcus Weaver.

Let’s hear from readers who are either medical professionals or have sustained injuries similar to Weaver’s.


Austrian jihadi bride beaten to death after trying to escape ISIS

We knew this would happen…

Selimovic (l) and text

Selimovic (l) and Kesinovic (r)

In October 2014, I reported on two Austrian teens who abandoned their homes and families to become “poster girls” for ISIS terrorists. In April they left a note for that parents that read: “Don’t look for us. We will serve Allah, and we will die for him.” They had a change of heart in October and desperately wanted to come home.

Samra Kesinovic (then 17) and her friend Sabina Selimovic (then 15) left Austria and were believed to be married, pregnant and living in the ISIS-controlled city of Raqqa in northern Syria.

Now comes word that Samra (now 18) has been beaten to death after trying to escape the group’s Syrian stronghold of Raqqa. A Tunisian woman who had been living with Samra says the young girl was killed by Islamic State extremists after she tried to flee recently, according to The Local Austria.

The gal pals had traveled to the war-torn nation with the hope of becoming “jihadi brides” — and they later married two of the ISIS militants upon their arrival. Photos posted to social media in the following months showed the pair wearing black burkas and wielding AK-47s. Officials said earlier this year they believed Selimovic had been killed during a skirmish in Syria.


1995 Oklahoma City bomber Timothy McVeigh was a Muslim sympathizer


The popular image of 1995 Oklahoma City bomber Timothy McVeigh is that of a twisted “patriot” out to avenge government actions at Waco and Ruby Ridge. This is what Wikipedia says about McVeigh:

McVeigh, a Persian Gulf War veteran, sought revenge against the federal government for its handling of the Waco Siege, which ended in the deaths of 76 people exactly two years before the bombing, as well as for the Ruby Ridge incident in 1992. McVeigh hoped to inspire a revolt against what he considered to be a tyrannical federal government.

From the beginning, the media had portrayed McVeigh and co-conspirator Terry Nichols as extremist, “right-wing,” Christian nut-cases. Just recently, on ABC’s The View on November 17, co-host Joy Behar called Americans unChristian for objecting to Obama’s program of bringing unvetted Muslim “refugees” to the United States. Behar then implied that Syrian Christian refugees are dangerous because “Timothy McVeigh was a Christian.” (See “Whoopi Goldberg, the woman who named herself after farting, says Christians are just as dangerous as Muslims“)

Joy Behar

But The Federalist points out that McVeigh wasn’t a Christian — he identified himself as an agnostic. Though raised as a Roman Catholic, McVeigh stated in his 2002 biography American Terrorist that he did not believe in a hell and that science was his religion. In June 2001, a day before the execution, McVeigh wrote a letter to the Buffalo News identifying himself as agnostic.

More than that, McVeigh was a Muslim sympathizer.

In her bestseller, The Third Terrorist, investigative journalist Jayna Davis presents the evidence showing that Timothy McVeigh was a front man for Middle Eastern terrorists, and that a third co-conspirator was an Iraqi — the mysterious “John Doe” who was never found. Davis says the evidence was ignored and dismissed because the Clinton Administration didn’t want to go to war with Iraq, the likely culprit, and wanted to blame the attack on domestic right-wingers for political reasons.  

Roger Aronoff of Accuracy in Media writes:

Davis makes a convincing case that in fact McVeigh “was a handpicked dupe, set up to take the fall in order to save his Islamic collaborators from prosecution.” She documents that he had expressed a desire to be a mercenary for Middle Eastern terrorists, and that the trail of evidence that both he and his accomplice Terry Nichols left behind points in the direction of an Arab/Muslim connection to the attack.

In her book, Davis details sworn affidavits from very credible witnesses who link McVeigh and Nichols to former Iraqi soldiers in the U.S. who were anti-American infiltrators wanting revenge on America’s Middle East policy. For that, Davis said she was called a racist:

“I’m an NBC affiliated reporter, I was from the mainstream media, but I was branded a racist, and politically incorrect, because I was pursuing legitimate leads and evidence that led to foreign involvement in the Oklahoma City bombing,” she said. “So by virtue of securing his [1996] White House bid by blaming right-wing rhetoric for inciting Timothy McVeigh, Bill Clinton was able to seal the case. That was it. It was domestic, home-grown terrorism. And now, fifteen years later, he comes out with the temerity and absolute audacity to try to compare these Tea Party conservatives with [McVeigh] a bloodthirsty terrorist. I mean, nothing could be further from the truth. “

In a 1,200-word essay dated March 1998, from the federal maximum-security prison at Florence, Colorado, McVeigh claimed that the Oklahoma City bombing was “morally equivalent” to U.S. military actions against Iraq and other foreign countries. The essay marked the first time that McVeigh publicly discussed the Oklahoma City bombing. He wrote:

The administration has said that Iraq has no right to stockpile chemical or biological weapons (“weapons of mass destruction”) — mainly because they have used them in the past.

Well, if that’s the standard by which these matters are decided, then the U.S. is the nation that set the precedent. The U.S. has stockpiled these same weapons (and more) for over 40 years….

Remember Dresden? How about Hanoi? Tripoli? Baghdad? What about the big ones — Hiroshima and Nagasaki? (At these two locations, the U.S. killed at least 150,000 non-combatants — mostly women and children — in the blink of an eye. Thousands more took hours, days, weeks or months to die).

If Saddam is such a demon, and people are calling for war crimes charges and trials against him and his nation, why do we not hear the same cry for blood directed at those responsible for even greater amounts of “mass destruction” — like those responsible and involved in dropping bombs on the cities mentioned above?

The truth is, the U.S. has set the standard when it comes to the stockpiling and use of weapons of mass destruction.

Four years after his conviction, McVeigh was executed by lethal injection on June 11, 2001.

Jayna Davis’s book has received the endorsement of, among other authorities:

  • Former CIA director Jim Woolsey.
  • David Schippers, former congressional investigator and a seasoned prosecutor responsible for prosecuting the impeachment trial of Bill Clinton.
  • Larry Johnson, a former deputy director of the State Department’s Office of Counter Terrorism. According to the Wall Street Journal, Johnson said, “Looking at the Jayna Davis material, what’s clear is that more than Tim McVeigh and Terry Nichols were involved. Without a doubt, there’s a Middle Eastern tie to the Oklahoma City bombing.”

This is what Jayna Davis said about the official and media version of the Oklahoma City bombing:

“Here’s where I think it, it lies: It’s going to have to be the peasants with the pitchforks. These people are going to have to rise up, just like the Tea Party movement is angry about Washington policies that affect their pocketbooks and the future of their children and the national deficit. They’re going to have to rise up and demand that this record is corrected.”

Otherwise, the liberal left will continue to use their version of Oklahoma City to smear anybody critical of their control of the federal government. Davis said:

“They’re going to continue to label anybody who carries a placard or raises a voice of dissent in a peaceful protest as a ‘Tim McVeigh wannabe.’  And until The Third Terrorist, and this evidence embodied in my book, is actually proven, prosecuted, and validated in a courtroom setting, the label of ‘Tim McVeigh wannabe’ is going to continue to be attached to God-fearing Americans who dare to step forward and question and hold to account their elected officials.

My belief is, the best way to get this into a courtroom, and to finally seek justice for the slain of April 19th, 1995, is to pressure the District Attorney of Oklahoma County, who single-handedly holds the legal power to go out and arrest these Arab suspects and put them on trial. He does not need the permission of the federal government. He can act single-handedly, either put it before a grand jury and issue an indictment, or he can just issue arrest warrants based on the evidence and talk to the witnesses.”

According to the Wall Street Journal, the court did not grant McVeigh’s attorney Stephen Jones’s request to comb through U.S. intelligence files in search of an Iraq connection to the Oklahoma City bombing. For his part, when he sentenced McVeigh to death, U.S. District Judge Richard Matsch said, “It would be disappointing to me if the law enforcement agencies of the United States government have quit looking for answers.”

AIM’s Roger Aronoff asked readers to phone Oklahoma County District Attorney David Prater at (405) 713-1600 or here, and ask respectfully that he act on the evidence presented by Jayna Davis.

That was in April 2010, more than 5 years ago.

Half of D.C. residents want a return to citywide gun ban

Apparently we don’t need no Second Amendment…

liberal logic 101

A Washington Post poll found that 51% of D.C. residents said they would like to reinstate a ban on gun ownership in the city that was ruled unconstitutional by the Supreme Court in 2008.

And this comes even as D.C. has seen a 58 percent spike in homicides this year — almost all from gun violence.

On Friday, a federal appeals court will consider whether, in the absence of a ban, D.C. officials can continue to enforce certain restrictions on carrying firearms on the streets of the nation’s capital. This includes the requirement that a person state a “good reason” to obtain a concealed- carry permit. In May, I reported on how a judge ruled that a person no longer has to show a good reason to get a permit to carry concealed handguns outside their homes and businesses.  This issue will be addressed again in court on Friday (requiring individuals to show “good reason to fear injury,” backed up by evidence of specific threats or previous attacks).

In September, The U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit ruled 2-1 that D.C. cannot ban gun owners from registering more than one pistol per month or require owners to re-register a gun every three years. The court also invalidated requirements that owners make a personal appearance to register a gun and pass a test about firearms laws.


The poll also found that reinstating a total ban on gun ownership is most popular among white residents (62 percent), particularly whites with college degrees (67 percent) and white women (65 percent). African Americans, particularly those living in areas of the city that have experienced a 50 percent increase in robberies at gunpoint this year, were also among the least supportive.

Well gals, guess you’ll just have to resort to urinating on a potential attacker (#LiberalTips2AvoidRape) while in D.C. That will do the trick, I’m sure! (obvious sarcasm)


Saudi court sentences poet to death for renouncing Islam

Wonder if Hillary believes that “human rights” are to be applied to those with different religious beliefs as well? No worries, more donations should keep her quiet on this matter.


The Guardian reported yesterday that Ashraf Fayadh (35), a Palestinian poet and leading member of Saudi Arabia’s nascent contemporary art scene, has been sentenced to death for renouncing Islam.

A Saudi court ordered the execution of Fayadh, who has curated art shows in Jeddah and at the Venice Biennale. The poet, who said he did not have legal representation, was given 30 days to appeal against the ruling.

Fayadh is a key member of the British-Saudi art organisation Edge of Arabia. He  was originally sentenced to four years in prison and 800 lashes by the general court in Abha, a city in the south-west of the ultraconservative kingdom, in May 2014. After his appeal was dismissed he was retried last month and a new panel of judges ruled that his repentance did not prevent his execution.

If you are aware of human rights (such as they are) in Saudi Arabia, this should come as no surprise. Systematic discrimination against women and religious minorities is prevalent. “I was really shocked but it was expected, though I didn’t do anything that deserves death,” Fayadh told the Guardian.

A migrant rights activist from Kuwait, Mona Kareem, has led a campaign for the poet’s release, said: “For one and a half years they promised him an appeal and kept intimidating him that there’s new evidence. He was unable to assign a lawyer because his ID was confiscated when he was arrested [in January 2014]. Then they said you must have a retrial and we’ll change the prosecutor and the judges. The new judge didn’t even talk to him, he just made the verdict.

Fayadh’s supporters believe he is being punished by hardliners for posting a video online showing the religious police (mutaween) in Abha lashing a man in public. “Some Saudis think this was revenge by the morality police,” said Kareem. He also believes that Fayadh has been targeted because he is a Palestinian refugee, even though he was born in Saudi Arabia.

Fayadh was first detained in August 2013 after receiving a complaint that he was cursing against Allah and the prophet Muhammad, insulting Saudi Arabia and distributing a book of his poems that promoted atheism. Fayadh said the complaint arose from a personal dispute with another artist during a discussion about contemporary art in a cafe in Abha.

After one day in jail, he was released on bail but the police arrested him again on January 1, 2014, confiscating his ID and detaining him at a police station until he was transferred to the local prison 27 days later. According to Fayadh’s friends, when the police failed to prove that his poetry was atheist propaganda, they began berating him for smoking and having long hair.

You are not allowed to practice or preach a different religion in Saudi Arabia other than Islam. Hence Fayadh is in the position he is in now. “They accused me [of] atheism and spreading some destructive thoughts into society,” said Fayadh. He added that the book, Instructions Within, published in 2008, was “just about me being [a] Palestinian refugee … about cultural and philosophical issues. But the religious extremists explained it as destructive ideas against God.”

During Fayadh’s trial in February 2014, complainant and two members of the religious police told the court that Fayadh had publicly blasphemed, promoted atheism to young people and conducted illicit relationships with women and stored some of their photographs on his mobile phone. He denied the accusations of blasphemy and told the court he was a faithful Muslim. According to the court documents, he said: “I am repentant to God most high and am innocent of what appeared in my book mentioned in this case.”

The case highlights the tensions between hardline religious conservatives and the small but growing number of artists and activists who are tentatively pushing the boundaries of freedom of speech in Saudi Arabia, where cinema is banned and there are no art schools.

Saudi Arabia has a complete intolerance of anyone who does not share government-mandated religious, political and social views. But that is not unexpected from those who adhere to Sharia Law.

Shocking video shows Europe’s “refugee crisis” is a Muslim invasion

2015 Muslim invasion of Europe2015 Muslim invasion of Europe22015 Muslim invasion of Europe12015 Muslim invasion of Europe32015 Muslim invasion of Europe4

The images above are among many in the video below which show Europe’s so-called “refugee crisis” actually is an INVASION.

The shocking video shows more images of the “refugees” like swarms of locusts. Do you see children and women among the “refugees”? I see mainly men — military-age young males from the Muslim countries of the Middle East and North Africa. Where are the children and women that the MSM like to parade before us to tug at our heart strings?

Purpose of 2015 Muslim invasion of Europe

Beginning at the 1:21 mark, a Muslim cleric proclaims the real purpose of the invasion:

“They [Europe] wish they were dead! They have lost their fertility! So they look for fertility in our midst! We shall give them fertility! We will breed children with them! Take the ‘refugees’! We shall soon collect them in the name of Caliphate!”

At the 1:52 mark, a black man screams another purpose of the invaders: “Money! Money! Money!”

There are images of the “refugees” rioting and attacking police in riot gear, like this one below.

2015 Muslim invasion of Europe5

Is that how refugees — defined as those fleeing political oppression at home and seeking political asylum in a safe country — behave?

How about assault and rape? Is that how “refugees” behave?

2015 Muslim invasion of Europe6

The video above repeatedly was taken down by YouTube, ostensibly for “copyright violation”. The individual or group, Death of Nations, who uploaded the video, says that copyright takedown of the video is “averted by muting parts of the audio”.

Guess how many Muslims showed up at a rally to take a stand against Islamic extremism?

Answer: Not enough.

Muslims against terror Dan Sanderson

A group French Muslims held up banners and started to chant at a location where people gathered to lay flowers and light candles in memory of those who died in the Paris terrorist attacks. ‘Unite against brutality, unite for humanity!’ They shouted. ‘Killing any human is killing all mankind! Saving any human is saving all mankind!’ Around 30 Muslims, all of Bangladeshi origin and living in Paris, felt they had to take a stand against Islamic extremism because – as they saw it – few other Muslims were willing to raise their voices.

‘Muslims are not being loud enough,’ Mohammad Hassan, 35, told MailOnline, ‘This needed to be done because some Muslims are afraid of coming out to say the truth. About five percent of Muslims support the terrorists. The rest of them need to speak out. I wish more Muslims would join us here. We swear we will fight against these monsters. Decent Muslims must stand up to them before it is too late.’

Khalil Merroun, the rector of the Islamic Centre in Courcouronnes where Oman Mostefai, one of the suicide bombers, is thought to have attended, struck a similar note. ‘We need to wage a jihad against the jihad,’ he told MailOnline. ‘These kids want to change the world rather than themselves. We have to show the true face of Islam.’

Amid the shock and pain that characterizes aftermath of these brutal attacks, France is beginning a process of soul-searching.  And despite strong statements like these many ordinary people on the streets of Paris are pointing the finger of blame at the Muslim community.

‘Paris is “Middle-Easting”. We now have the same problems that they have in the Middle East, in Egypt, Palestine and Syria,’ said Natalie Augier, a historian and terrorism expert, as she gazed in disbelief at the smashed-up facade of the Casa Nostra café, where five diners were killed.

‘There is a very radical mosque just around the corner from here. I know how these people work and operate. They don’t speak to women, they dress them up as lampshades. They are not integrated at all, yet they are allowed to live among us and spread their poison. Thousands and thousands of refugees are pouring in and we know some terrorists are with them. We are paying for our stupidity.

A significant number of France’s 4.7 million Muslims live in relatively poor areas, including the notorious suburbs of Paris where unemployment and crime are rife. This is often thought to be a breeding ground for extremism and terror.

Although many Muslims are well-integrated in the country, a 2013 survey showed that just 26 percent of French people thought that Islam was compatible with their society, a sentiment that is compounded by the surging Front National.

Read the rest of the story here. The story also includes commentary from a psychologist who blames the media for not reporting on the actions of Muslims decrying the terrorism. But from what I’ve been able to find on the internet, not many Muslims actually hold public protests to denounce terrorism. And I didn’t find one protest held by CAIR. Shocker, not.
