Sandcrawler PSA: Taunting Secret Service is a Very Very Bad Idea (07:08AM)

I know this is three PSAs in a row, so many idiots, so little time.

Yet another Left Wing Violent Extremist.

An Edwardsville man posted on Facebook that he wanted to assassinate President Donald Trump, according to federal authorities.

Joseph Lynn Pickett was charged with threatening the president of the United States on June 15.

U.S. Secret Service Special Agent Vincent Pescitelli said Pickett threatened to “take the life of, to kidnap, and to inflict bodily harm” against Trump on Facebook, according to a criminal complaint filed with the charges. The complaint included screenshots of Pickett’s Facebook posts.

Before I die I want our president and congress to sign a treaty to never side with Russia or any enemy of the United States of America! If one will then that person deserves to be shot,” his post read. “Guess what Trump? I’m waiting for the right time...and I KNOW your (sic) Putin’s (expletive)! The secret service now has a heads up as to my plan to assassinate Trump...let’s see if they act.”
Well I guess we have the answer to that question!

Hat Tip: Sheli.

Sandcrawler PSA: Helicopter Parenting Is Fascist (07:11AM)

I feel very lucky, to have been raised free range, where you were expected to go outside by 8:00, come in for lunch and dinner. Unless, you know, there was a blizzard or something.

American childhood has taken an authoritarian turn. An array of trends in American society are conspiring to produce unprecedented levels of supervision and control over children’s lives. Tracing the effects of childrearing on broad social outcomes is an exercise in speculation. But if social scientists are correct to posit a connection between childrearing and long-term political outcomes, today’s restrictive childhood norms may portend a broader regression in our country’s democratic consensus.

...Consider that practically every declining health outcome in children can be traced to the sedentary, indoor, micromanaged lives that now define American childhood.

Experts meanwhile are linking increasing rates of anger, aggression, and severe behavior problems to a lack of free play. These outcomes are consistent with evolutionary psychology theories that consider play to be a critical part of child development, teaching children to cope with, and ultimately master, fears and phobias.

Also the main thing we need to do with kids, focus on the three Rs in young kids and run their little asses off.

Then when they get to middle school, run their asses off some more. In HS, you got it, run their asses off.

But there has to be give and take, decent grades and running your ass off earns you free range time. Which you can spend on your bicycle down at the creek reading discarded Playboys and smoking cigarettes like you're supposed to.

We can't even get them to dress out for P.E. anymore...forget actually getting sweaty unless they are already the athletic type. Another new type of parent is the 'snowplow' parent. They precede their kids and mow down ANY and ALL obstacles to their complete success and happiness. They control every aspect of their kids' lives. I have a sister-in-law who is such. Her 180 lb 12 year old boy NEVER sets foot outside the house alone....EVER! If she takes him to the doctor and the doctor tries to tell her he is obese, she leaves that doc and goes elsewhere. I don't think he knows how to ride a bicycle, or skateboard or any such outside method of recreation...

A man at the airport shouted Allahu Ackbar and stabbed a cop ion the throat.

This is just a small sample of Islamic culture. Not a very good one. But you have to take the good with the bad and the positive contributions outweigh the bad or some I'm told.

Unless you're the guy with the huge hole in his neck, then its pretty bad. But there are 350 million people in America, the chance that you are next is small, but its not nil.

Brussels Attacked Again (10:04AM)

Another day another terrorist attack, ISIS death throes are intense at the moment.

A man who triggered a suitcase bomb in a failed attack at a busy Brussels train station was a 36-year-old Moroccan citizen who was known to the police but was not wanted over terrorism-related offenses, the Belgian authorities said on Wednesday.

The bomber entered Brussels Central Station at 8:39 p.m. on Tuesday, went downstairs from the main ticket hall and began shouting near a group of passengers, according to Eric Van der Sijpt, a spokesman for the federal prosecutor’s office.

He was carrying a suitcase bomb that contained nails and gas bottles, Mr. Van der Sijpt said. The man set off a partial and relatively harmless explosion.

He then left the bag behind while he went in pursuit of a station master, Mr. Van der Sijpt said, and it “exploded a second time, more violently.”

After the second explosion, the man went back upstairs, approached a soldier and screamed “Allahu akbar” (Arabic for “God is great”). The soldier opened fire, killing him. Initial reports that the man might have been wearing a suicide belt proved to be unfounded.

Imperial Good News! Turki al-Bin’ali Obliterated (09:08AM)

I just love to post happy stories. Daily Caller:

U.S.-led forces said Tuesday in a press release that they killed the Islamic State’s chief cleric in May.

binalideadjim.jpg

Turki al-Bin’ali, the chief cleric who referred to himself as the Grand Mufti, was killed by U.S.-led coalition forces in Syria in May, according to a press release from Operation Inherent Resolve.

Bin’ali’s central job was to recruit foreign fighters and instigate terror attacks. He held the high-ranking position from 2014 until May, according to details issued by the coalition.

You know what this means don't you.

NPR's Shockingly Honest Report on Islamic Terrorism (08:52AM)

It appears the left, despite all their efforts has become, to use their term has been woke to terrorism. I mean after all the daily attacks are hard to ignore.

MARTIN: So Shankar, what would these researchers say to someone who sees these headlines time and time again over the years and the perpetrators are either Muslim or are acting in the name of Islam? Is it unreasonable for them to assume a connection?

VEDANTAM: No, I don't think it's unreasonable at all, Rachel. Many of the reasons driving these disparities in coverage are driven by fairly normal psychological processes. Kearns finds, for example, that Muslims are responsible for a disproportionate number of terrorist attacks in the United States.

They're about 1 percent of the U.S. population, but they carried out about 12 percent of the terrorist attacks that occurred between 2011 and 2015.

After all even if you just count the US the average Muslim is 825 times more likely to commit an act of terror than the Kuffar.

Which answers the question about why the coverage of 12% of attacks is 50% of media. It's because of that 825% aberration from the normal expectation.

:: Comments left behind ::

I looked at the source of the data (Global Terrorism Database), and a few things stood out for the 89 attacks between 2011 and 2015.:

1) The 12% of attacks that were perpetrated by Muslims includes the large majority of fatalities and injuries.

2) The list of 89 attacks includes a lot of hate crimes, many of which can reasonably be called terrorism (multiple murder, arson etc), but also minor stuff (hitting a store clerk for her religion and shouting abuses) that is stretching the definition of terrorism somewhat.

3) There are some attacks where the motive and the perpetrator are unknown, and there isn't any information to even imply a political, racist or religious motive.

:: Anon June 21, 2017 04:00 PM

88%? What 88%?

Terrorism all over the place according to this.

Um no...

:: Fewenuff June 21, 2017 07:11 PM

All of them were House Freedom Caucus members.

All of the Republicans on Hodgkinson’s alleged kill list are members of the House Freedom Caucus, a group that represents the conservative wing of the GOP in the lower chamber. Rep. Steve Scalise, the House majority whip and the only House member shot in the attack, was not on the list. He is also not a member of the Freedom Caucus.

Van Hits Ten Muslim Men In Front of Finsbury Park Mosque (Attacker Identified: Darren Osborne) (07:30PM)

There are reports of a rented van crashing into 10 Muslim men outside the mosque.

A van has reportedly ploughed into a group of pedestrians outside a mosque in north London, leaving numerous casualties.


It is believed the group of around ten Muslim men were run over at the renowned Finsbury Park Mosque, in Seven Sisters Road, just after midnight.

Eyewitnesses reported seeing bystanders wrestle the suspect to the floor and pin him down until officers.

Update: More details coming in.


The Finsbury Park attacker is identified as Darren Osborne.

The man suspected of using a van to attack worshipers at a London mosque has been identified as 47-year-old Darren Osborne, a father-of-four from Cardiff, Wales. Police have confirmed that he will be charged with the commission, preparation or instigation of terrorism and attempted murder.

Osborne's neighbor, 52-year-old Dave Ashford, told the Guardian he was shocked to discover that Osborne was suspected of being behind the attack...

“Someone called me and said it was him and I said ‘It can’t be’. Then I saw the picture on the news and said, 'it’s him."
As RT reports, one person died and 10 others were injured in the incident, which British Prime Minister Theresa May has called "sickening," and London's mayor has described as a "horrific terrorist attack."
Thanks to Zerohedge.

An update on Osborne here from RT 06/20/17.

The family of Osborne said he was beset by mental problems and had never expressed extremist views. He is alleged, however, to have expressed increasingly antagonistic views towards Muslims in the weeks since the London Bridge attack.

...There is no immediate evidence that Osborne was an active member of a far-right organization. He was not known to security services, according to Ben Wallace, the security minister.

...His neighbor Khadijeh Sherizi, who described herself as a white Muslim, said she could not believe Osborne was being investigated for carrying out an attack on Muslim worshippers. Sherazi told the Guardian she had never had any problems with Osborne or his family until this weekend, when he called her son an “inbred.”

...Over the weekend, Osborne had also reportedly been thrown out of a local pub for getting drunk, “cursing Muslims and saying he would do some damage.”

...Osborne was born in Singapore but grew up in Weston-super-Mare, Somerset, where he attended Broadoak Mathematics and Computing College.

Also if you read further it appears he was quite a fish, even leading to reports that he has split with his wife and was living in a tent.

So it appears that what happened was he was upset about the London bridge attack to start with, went on a bender and attacked Finsbury in a drunken revenge.

If you look at a lot of copies of the videos he appears to be drunk even waving after being placed in the police van.

So the lesson? Terrorism begets terrorism. This IS the blowback we've been looking for. I'm not optimistic about this either, we've reached a tipping point where terrorism has become so normalized we'll see it happening all over from all sorts of angles.

The pooch is screwed, I repeat the pooch is screwed.

I was going to say similar -- THIS non-muslim person is INSTANTLY labeleed a 'terrorist' by the brit gov, when numerous other muslims terrorists are not labeled so when obviously much more violent and premeditated.

Russians Attack Zombie Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi (01:06PM)

Ok so we reported a rumor last week from the Syrian regime that Baghdadi is dead.

I gave it a 20% percent chance due to all the whining about airstrikes on Raqqa a couple days before.

Now the Russian at saying they also believe he's dead Jim!


And that the strike on a ISIS command was theirs, its hard to tell because the US, UK, Russia and France are all bombing Raqqa or claiming to.

So there is no proof of life from ISIS to dispute the claims. I'm hopeful. Bumping it to 40% chance.

Defeating The Digital Caliphate (09:14AM)

In order to stop the growth of Islamic Terrorism it's helpful to read their statements. They often talk of Success.

As in the Islamic State successfully attacked this, or successfully took this area or defended that area. The event does not matter, what ISIS and terrorists are offering to young disillusioned Muslims is success. A pathway to make a difference.

Of course its a dead end as the terrorists can't provide the end state they suggest.
But without an alternative narrative or pathway to succeed in life , young idealistic people will continue to be sucked into the terrorist camp.

There must be an alternative pathway for them as well as efforts to fight.

The U.S. government has incorrectly characterized the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant’s (ISIL) strategy as having the endstate of creating an Islamic state according to the Westphalian definition of “state” built on the shared experiences achieved through geographic proximity and territorial integrity. While this goal is certainly an aspect of ISIL’s strategy and one that the U.S. may be thwarting, ISIL’s overarching strategic objective is one that U.S. national security professionals do not adequately appreciate or address: ISIL is leveraging basic psychological manipulation principles in order to build an online community predicated on the notion of a digital caliphate which is more important to ISIL’s long-term success than a geographically bounded caliphate. While true that U.S. military forces are defeating ISIL fighters and liberating key terrain from ISIL control, it is a mistake in perspective to see these defeats and ISIL’s associated transition from the land domain to the cyber domain as large blow to ISIL’s organizational efficacy.

This paper argues that ISIL’s notion of a Caliphate is aligned with the concept of a community rather than that of a state and that ISIL’s strategic focus is on psychological control rather than territorial control. After exploring ISIL’s success in building a digital caliphate based on the sociological concept of community, this paper presents recommendations for developing and promulgating alternative methods of community that will usurp the appeal of ISIL’s burgeoning digital caliphate. Finally, this paper concludes by discussing the implications of this research on a U.S. counter-ISIL digital messaging strategy.

The argument advanced by this research adheres to the following structure. The paper begins by articulating the differences between the concepts of community and state from a sociological perspective. It then makes the case that psychological control is more important to ISIL than territorial gains by assessing ISIL’s ideological impact on their three major target audiences before disaggregating the digital caliphate into its four basic components. After showing how these four components support ISIL’s concept of community, the paper offers a new paradigm for developing alternative models of community that offer credible alternatives to ISIL’s digital caliphate and how the U.S. government bureaucracy and organizational structure should be leveraged in order to effectively address the digital caliphate.
