To Roanoke Killer, Vester Flanagan, Everything Was Racist

Screen Shot 2015-08-28 at 9.32.26 AM

This is what people like DeRay McKesson foster and fester in people who are on the edge.

ROANOKE, Va. — The words are a part of everyday conversation — “swinging” by an address and going out in the “field.”

But in the twisted mind of Virginia gunman Vester Lee Flanagan II, they were pure racism — and saying them became a death sentence for Alison Parker.
The 24-year-old white reporter, who was murdered on live TV along with her cameraman, used the phrases as an intern at ­WDBJ TV in Roanoke in 2012, according to an internal complaint filed by Flanagan, who was black.

“One was something about ‘swinging’ by some place; the other was out in the ‘field,’ ” said the Jan. 21 report by assistant news director Greg Baldwin, which refers to Parker as Alison Bailey (her middle name).

Parker was never disciplined over the remarks, but Flanagan never forgot them.

Hours after gunning her and Adam Ward down during their broadcast Wednesday, Flanagan revealed in tweets that the comments were still fresh in his mind.
“Alison made racist comments,” Flanagan posted while he was on the run from cops.

“They hired her after that??” he wrote.

But colleagues said that it was all in Flanagan’s head and that Parker was as far from racist as they come.

“That’s how that guy’s mind worked. Just crazy, left-field assumptions like that,” Ryan Fuqua, a video editor at WDBJ, told The Post.

“[Those words are] just common, everyday talk. [But] that was his MO — to start s- -t,” Fuqua ­explained. “He was unstable. One time, after one of our live shots failed, he threw all his stuff down and ran into the woods for like 20 minutes.”

How Huma Abedin Operated At The Center Of The Clinton Universe

Rules exist for Huma that don’t exist for anyone else.  Anywhere.  Ever.

Via Washington Post:

As Hillary Rodham Clinton was preparing for her farewell international trip as secretary of state, her close aide and confidante Huma Abedin e-mailed a small number of longtime political allies to help arrange an intimate get-together at a private club in Dublin.

“Maybe we can all gather for drinks/dinner and HRC can come join for as long as she can?” Abedin wrote.

The December 2012 event showcased the unique position that Abedin occupied at the apex of the Clintons’ public and private worlds during the final six months of Hillary Clinton’s tenure heading the State Department.

Too Funny: Cornel West Refuses To Admit Racism Involved In Roanoke Journalist Killings: There Was A “Love Deficit”…

Groan…

Cornel West couldn’t seem to answer Carol Costello‘s question about whether or not the broadcast shooting death of WDBJ reporter Alison Parker and cameraman Adam Ward was racially motivated.

During the Thursday morning editon of CNN Newsroom, Costello opened West’s visit by asking whether or not he believed “race [played] a factor” in the actions of Bryce Williams, real name Vester Flanagan, during his “rampage” on Wednesday. In response, West delivered one of the most verbose, convoluted and uncomfortable non-answers of the topic of race and violence ever witnessed.

School Bans Young Girl’s Wonder Woman Lunchbox For Being “Too Violent”…

Below is the actual lunchbox deemed “too violent” for our special little snowflakes.

Via EW:

Superheroes are often fodder for lunchbox covers, but one school considers the do-gooders nothing more than “violent characters.”

Recently, a young girl purportedly received a letter stating that her Wonder Woman lunchbox violated a code in which the school asks that children not bring violent images into the building in any way. “We have defined ‘violent characters’ as those who solve problems using violence,” the letter reads. “Superheroes certainly fall into that category.”

While the upcoming Batman v. Superman might show some characters’ more hostile tendencies, the lunch box in question simply featured a smiling profile of Wonder Woman and a solo action shot with her lasso — a picture that seems to best symbolize the character’s strength and confidence. The letter sparked outrage on the internet, with even Wonder Woman actress Lynda Carter retweeting a story about the lunchbox. Check out images of the item below.

Nationwide Movement? Obituaries Keep Requesting That Loved Ones Not Vote For Hillary

Hillary Oooh

No worries, dear people, we will fulfill your last wish.

Via Free Beacon:

An Arkansas man has requested in his obituary that loved ones do not vote for Hillary Clinton in the 2016 election, making him at least the third individual to do so since Clinton launched her campaign in April.

The obituary for Richard Buckman of Beebe, Ark., reads, “In lieu of flowers, please do not vote for Hillary,” mirroring text that was included in a recent obituary for a deceased New Jersey woman.

Buckman died on Aug. 22 at the age of 75, three days after news broke that the obituary for 63-year-old Elaine Fydrych of Gloucester Township, N.J., advised funeral goers, “Elaine requests, ‘In lieu of flowers, please do not vote for Hillary Clinton.’”

Indeed, such requests have become something of a trend. The obituary for a 81-year-old North Carolina man who died the day after Clinton launched her presidential campaign also asked loved ones to refrain from voting for the Democratic presidential candidate.

Wait What? DNC Website Mistakes Polish War Vets For American Veterans

Screen Shot 2015-08-27 at 9.54.17 PM

Is this at all surprising given that most hate the military and have no idea what they look like?

Via Military Times:

Democrats’ election outreach efforts to veterans may need to start with a refresher course on what U.S. troops look like.

For starters, they don’t wear Polish military uniforms.

Until Thursday, the Democratic National Committee’s “Veterans and Military Families” website had as its only picture a shot from White House photographers during President Obama’s visit to Warsaw in 2011.

The president had been cropped out, but faces of four elderly veterans wearing European-style military uniforms were visible above several paragraphs asserting the party’s “commitment to America’s veterans.” The Polish military’s White Eagle insignia was clear on the headgear of two of the veterans.

While largely harmless, the error points to a common complaint among U.S. veterans groups about the lack of knowledge of many Americans about military life, tradition and challenges.

Trump: Ted Cruz And I Are Joining Up To Do “Something Very Big” In Next Two Weeks

If you imagined you saw connections going on between these two, you weren’t mistaken.

Via The Blaze:

Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump announced on Thursday that he and Senator Ted Cruz (R-Texas), also a GOP candidate, are joining forces to do “something very big over the next two weeks in Washington.”

Speaking to reporters following a campaign rally in South Carolina, Trump said the event will essentially be a “protest” of the Obama administration’s “totally incompetent” nuclear deal with Iran. He also called Cruz a “friend of mine” and a good guy.”

“By the way, even if you break it up, they are going to get $150 billion,” he said. “You know what I’d do? I wouldn’t give them the money. I don’t care what the deal — I would not give them the money.”

The presidential candidate, 69, paused a campaign stop in Greenville, South Carolina, to invite an audience member on stage to run her hand through his much-discussed hairdo.

He stopped partway through speaking to the crowd on Thursday to pluck the woman from the audience of 1,800 and have her touch his head – which she did with some trepidation.

Illegal Alien On Run After Being Accused Of Raping Teenaged Girl With Down Syndrome

Screen Shot 2015-08-27 at 9.03.12 PM

Despicable.

Via American Mirror:

An illegal alien is on the run after he was accused of raping a Texas teen.

Police say Jesus Atrian sexually assaulted a 16-year-old girl with Down Syndrome in her home in Pearland Monday afternoon.

KHOU reports Atrian is an “illegal alien with a prior adjudication for Indecency with a Child by Sexual Contact and is required to register as a Sex Offender.”

There was a warrant out for his arrest at the time of the incident. Police believe he is “attempting to travel to Mexico.”

Atrian has a vertical tattoo under his right eye of the word “Jesus,” another vertical tattoo under his left eye reading “Atrian,” and the name “Adriana” tattooed above his right eyebrow.

The Friendswood Journal reports the 25-year-old illegal alien “plead guilty to indecency with a child by sexual contact in August of 2014 and was sentenced to eight years of probation.”

Sometime later, Atrian was turned over to officials from U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services and was reportedly deported to Mexico.

It’s unclear when he once again illegally entered the United States.

The victim and her family apparently knew Atrian. She was taken to the hospital for treatment and released.

Cop Killed Himself After His Name Was Linked To Ashley Madison, But He Was Falsely Named By Cop-Hating Group

Screen Shot 2015-08-27 at 8.32.18 PM

Cop Block has been active in Anonymous, Occupy and Black Lives Matter protests. We’ve seen the many lies of those protesters. This may have contributed to this man’s death.

Via Daily Mail:

A police officer who shot himself after being linked to Ashley Madison was not a user of it and was the victim of a smear published on a cop-hating blog, Daily Mail Online can reveal.

Captain Michael Gorhum’s official San Antonio police email address was published in a purported list of Ashley Madison users on a website called Cop Block, which carries material highly critical of police.

On the day he learned that he was on the published list, and as colleagues also learned about his presence on the Cop Block site, he took his own life, shooting himself in the parking lot of the church where he worshiped with his wife and two children.

An investigation is underway to establish how the internet ‘shaming’ may have contributed to his death. His widow said he had been under unrelated ‘stress’ at work for some time beforehand.

U.S. Drone Strike Takes Out ISIS Hacker/Recruiter, Junaid Hussain, Man Linked To Garland Attack

Screen Shot 2015-08-27 at 11.38.47 AM

This is an intel coup, as this guy has been linked to multiple recruitment efforts in the West, as well as hacking and in person attacks.

Via NY Post:

A US drone strike in Syria Tuesday reportedly killed a fugitive British computer hacker who had become one of ISIS’ top online recruiters.
The Wall Street Journal reported the death of Junaid Hussein late Wednesday, citing two people familiar with the operation. The officials said Hussein was killed by a targeted airstrike near the Syrian city of Raqqa, the de facto capital of ISIS’ self-proclaimed “caliphate.”

Hussein was a native of Birmingham, England, who fled Britain for Syria in 2013 after serving prison time for hacking the email of a former aide to British Prime Minister Tony Blair and publishing Blair’s personal information online. Adopting the name Abu Hussain Al Britani, he repeatedly called for young, computer-literate Muslims to come to Syria and Iraq to join ISIS.

“You can sit at home and play call of duty or you can come here and respond to the real call of duty… the choice is yours,” Hussein tweeted in 2014, referencing the popular video game.

In recent months, officials told the Journal that Hussein had tried to use social media to recruit would-be jihadis to carry out attacks against US service personnel. The paper reported that Hussein would frequently post the names, addresses and photos of US troops on his Twitter feed and urge his followers to find the serviceman or servicewoman and kill him or her. US officials believe Hussein was also involved in plotting terror attacks over this past July 4 holiday.

Mastermind Arrested In Iran-Inspired 1996 Khobar Towers Attack That Killed 19 Americans

Screen Shot 2015-08-27 at 7.52.45 PM

But hey, don’t let Iran sponsoring terrorism stop us from giving them nuclear weapons…

Via Yahoo:

DUBAI, United Arab Emirates (AP) — A man described as the mastermind of the 1996 Khobar Towers bombing that killed 19 American servicemen in Saudi Arabia has been captured, a U.S. and a Saudi official said Wednesday, ending a nearly two-decade manhunt for one of the FBI’s most-wanted terrorists.

Ahmed al-Mughassil was arrested in Beirut and transferred to Riyadh, the Saudi capital, according to the Saudi newspaper Asharq Alawsat. The Saudi Interior Ministry and Lebanese authorities had no immediate comment on the capture.

The 48-year-old suspect was described by the FBI in 2001 as the head of the armed wing of the once-active but shadowy Saudi Hezbollah group. The FBI had offered a $5 million reward for information leading to his arrest.

The June 25, 1996, truck bombing at the Khobar Towers, an eight-story dormitory in eastern Saudi Arabia for U.S. Air Force personnel assigned to the Gulf, killed 19 Americans and wounded 372 more. It was the deadliest such attack targeting U.S. forces since the 1983 bombing of the U.S. Marines’ barracks in Beirut that killed 241 American servicemen.

Al-Mughassil, also known as Abu Omran, is one of 14 people named in a 2001 indictment in Alexandria, Virginia, in connection with the bombing. Charges include murder of federal employees and bombing resulting in death.

The U.S. indictment said that elements of the Iranian government inspired, supported and supervised members of the Saudi Hezbollah group in the Khobar Towers attack, but it stopped short of naming any Iranian officials.

(CNN)The man who murdered a television reporter and cameraman on live television set up websites that featured gay porn, according to records obtained by CNN.

Beginning on September 4, 2007, the records show that Vester L. Flanagan II set up domain names for seven different sites.

CNN found that Flanagan used his name and address in Vallejo, California, to register the sites. The last site registration from Flanagan was on January 22, 2008.

At the time of the site registrations, Flanagan was working as the “communications director” for a Web company called NDG Interactive, according to his LinkedIn profile.

The sites registered by Flanagan were all associated with gay porn or gay webcams. He is listed on the website domain registrations as both the administrative and technical contact.

Left Eats Left: Black Lives Matter Disrupts D.C. Mayor Muriel Bowser’s Speech On Stopping Homicides

Because they don’t want resolutions, they want chaos. Not to mention that her answers were all about increasing police in high crime areas (what a concept), and to them police are the occupying force.

Via WaPo:

Anger over a rising murder rate and the District’s response to it boiled over into a shouting match Thursday as Mayor Muriel E. Bowser struggled to tell a crowd about a new initiative to fight crime while being shouted down by protesters.

Bowser (D) planned to announce a wide-ranging, $15 million plan to boost both community programs and police presence in response to a 43 percent spike in killings this year. The plan includes financial incentives to keep police on the force despite a looming retirement bubble, as well as legislation that would raise some penalties for violent crime and give police the power to search the residences of violent ex-offenders.

But protesters linked to a nationwide movement that has mobilized over allegations of police misconduct erupted at her first mention of putting more officers on the streets. Community activists quickly joined the chants of “Black Lives Matter” with their own demands for jobs and recreation centers.

Bowser fought back, at times acknowledging the voices of dissent and at other times simply raising her voice over the roar. “I will not be shouted down or scared away,” she said at one point, as her supporters stood and cheered over the din of protest, effectively splitting the room between opposing sides.

Boehner Calls Ted Cruz A ‘Jackass’ At Colorado Fundraiser

Cruz Boehner

Kind of sounds like like Boehner’s a ‘wacko bird’. But I suppose we’re lucky he didn’t cry when he said it…

Via Daily Caller:

Speaker of the House John Boehner stunned audience members Wednesday evening at a Colorado fundraiser by referring to Republican presidential candidate Ted Cruz as a “jackass,” two people in attendance tell The Daily Caller.

At a Steamboat Springs event for GOP Rep. Scott Tipton, the Ohio Republican quipped that he likes how Cruz’s presidential campaign keeps “that jackass” out of Washington, and from telling Boehner how to do his job.

That remark rubbed some attendees the wrong way.

“I don’t think it’s terribly speaker-like, and I think it kind of goes against everything that Reagan ever said about disparaging Republicans,” said Ed MacArthur, the president of Native Excavating, who attended the fundraiser.

“It’s becoming very disturbing to me that we can’t have good, polite conversation,” MacArthur said. “It all has to be at the throat.”

But MacArthur added: “I do believe he’s got the right to say it.”
