Apparently Omar Mateen was questioned by the FBI three times, twice in 2009 and once in 2014.  The two times in 2009 were because Mateen liked to flaunt his jihadist sympathies to his co-workers.  In 2014 it was because Mateen had established contact with Moner Mohammad Abusalha, the first American born suicide bomber in Syria.  Go here to read all about it.  Matteen’s father, Seddique Mateen, is a nutcase who is a supporter of the Taliban and who claims to be the head of the provisional government of Afghanistan.  Go here to read about it.  Oh, and Mateen worked as a security guard for a company that supplies security to federal buildings.  If you are wondering why Mateen was not kept under surveillance, you simply do not understand that Islam is a religion of peace and we simply cannot keep under surveillance an American muslim, even when he gives every sign of not only being in sympathy with Jihadists but also makes verbal threats to kill various people.  This is official policy.  Since this is so, rather than deal with the root problem, that more than a few muslims in this country are in sympathy with the Jihadists, attention is instead now directed to non-issues like gun control.  The speech of President Obama yesterday is typical in that regard:

Today, as Americans, we grieve the brutal murder — a horrific massacre — of dozens of innocent people. We pray for their families, who are grasping for answers with broken hearts. We stand with the people of Orlando, who have endured a terrible attack on their city. Although it’s still early in the investigation, we know enough to say that this was an act of terror and an act of hate. And as Americans, we are united in grief, in outrage, and in resolve to defend our people.
 
I just finished a meeting with FBI Director Comey and my homeland security and national security advisors. The FBI is on the scene and leading the investigation, in partnership with local law enforcement. I’ve directed that the full resources of the federal government be made available for this investigation. 
We are still learning all the facts. This is an open investigation. We’ve reached no definitive judgment on the precise motivations of the killer. The FBI is appropriately investigating this as an act of terrorism. And I’ve directed that we must spare no effort to determine what — if any — inspiration or association this killer may have had with terrorist groups. What is clear is that he was a person filled with hatred. Over the coming days, we’ll uncover why and how this happened, and we will go wherever the facts lead us.
 
This morning I spoke with my good friend, Orlando Mayor Buddy Dyer, and I conveyed the condolences of the entire American people. This could have been any one of our communities. So I told Mayor Dyer that whatever help he and the people of Orlando need — they are going to get it. As a country, we will be there for the people of Orlando today, tomorrow and for all the days to come.
 
We also express our profound gratitude to all the police and first responders who rushed into harm’s way. Their courage and professionalism saved lives, and kept the carnage from being even worse. It’s the kind of sacrifice that our law enforcement professionals make every single day for all of us, and we can never thank them enough.
 
This is an especially heartbreaking day for all our friends — our fellow Americans — who are lesbian, gay, bisexual or transgender. The shooter targeted a nightclub where people came together to be with friends, to dance and to sing, and to live. The place where they were attacked is more than a nightclub — it is a place of solidarity and empowerment where people have come together to raise awareness, to speak their minds, and to advocate for their civil rights. 
 
So this is a sobering reminder that attacks on any American — regardless of race, ethnicity, religion or sexual orientation — is an attack on all of us and on the fundamental values of equality and dignity that define us as a country. And no act of hate or terror will ever change who we are or the values that make us Americans.
 
Today marks the most deadly shooting in American history. The shooter was apparently armed with a handgun and a powerful assault rifle. This massacre is therefore a further reminder of how easy it is for someone to get their hands on a weapon that lets them shoot people in a school, or in a house of worship, or a movie theater, or in a nightclub. And we have to decide if that’s the kind of country we want to be. And to actively do nothing is a decision as well.
 
In the coming hours and days, we’ll learn about the victims of this tragedy. Their names. Their faces. Who they were. The joy that they brought to families and to friends, and the difference that they made in this world. Say a prayer for them and say a prayer for their families — that God give them the strength to bear the unbearable. And that He give us all the strength to be there for them, and the strength and courage to change. We need to demonstrate that we are defined more — as a country — by the way they lived their lives than by the hate of the man who took them from us.
 
As we go together, we will draw inspiration from heroic and selfless acts — friends who helped friends, took care of each other and saved lives. In the face of hate and violence, we will love one another. We will not give in to fear or turn against each other. Instead, we will stand united, as Americans, to protect our people, and defend our nation, and to take action against those who threaten us. 
 
May God bless the Americans we lost this morning. May He comfort their families. May God continue to watch over this country that we love. Thank you.

With this mindset at the top, Americans had better get used to this type of terrorism on our soil as a fact of life.

 

Update: 

 

Here is Donald Trump’s Statement:

Last night, our nation was attacked by a radical Islamic terrorist. It was the worst terrorist attack on our soil since 9/11, and the second of its kind in 6 months. My deepest sympathy and support goes out to the victims, the wounded, and their families.

In his remarks today, President Obama disgracefully refused to even say the words ‘Radical Islam’. For that reason alone, he should step down. If Hillary Clinton, after this attack, still cannot say the two words ‘Radical Islam’ she should get out of this race for the Presidency.

If we do not get tough and smart real fast, we are not going to have a country anymore. Because our leaders are weak, I said this was going to happen — and it is only going to get worse. I am trying to save lives and prevent the next terrorist attack. We can’t afford to be politically correct anymore.

The terrorist, Omar Mir Saddique Mateen, is the son of an immigrant from Afghanistan who openly published his support for the Afghanistani Taliban and even tried to run for President of Afghanistan. According to Pew, 99% of people in Afghanistan support oppressive Sharia Law.

We admit more than 100,000 lifetime migrants from the Middle East each year. Since 9/11, hundreds of migrants and their children have been implicated in terrorism in the United States.
Hillary Clinton wants to dramatically increase admissions from the Middle East, bringing in many hundreds of thousands during a first term — and we will have no way to screen them, pay for them, or prevent the second generation from radicalizing.

We need to protect all Americans, of all backgrounds and all beliefs, from Radical Islamic Terrorism – which has no place in an open and tolerant society. Radical Islam advocates hate for women, gays, Jews, Christians and all Americans. I am going to be a President for all Americans, and I am going to protect and defend all Americans. We are going to make America safe again and great again for everyone.

Here is Hillary Clinton’s Statement:

“I join Americans in praying for the victims of the attack in Orlando, their families and the first responders who did everything they could to save lives.

“This was an act of terror.  Law enforcement and intelligence agencies are hard at work, and we will learn more in the hours and days ahead.  For now, we can say for certain that we need to redouble our efforts to defend our country from threats at home and abroad.  That means defeating international terror groups, working with allies and partners to go after them wherever they are, countering their attempts to recruit people here and everywhere, and hardening our defenses at home. It also means refusing to be intimidated and staying true to our values.

“This was also an act of hate.  The gunman attacked an LGBT nightclub during Pride Month.  To the LGBT community: please know that you have millions of allies across our country.  I am one of them.  We will keep fighting for your right to live freely, openly and without fear.  Hate has absolutely no place in America.

“Finally, we need to keep guns like the ones used last night out of the hands of terrorists or other violent criminals.  This is the deadliest mass shooting in the history of the United States and it reminds us once more that weapons of war have no place on our streets.

“This is a time to stand together and resolve to do everything we can to defend our communities and country.”

Eating Their Own

  1. Based on those speeches, I would rather have a leader lie Trump than like Hillary or Obama.

  2. “powerful assault weapon”
    .
    There’s that ignorance and hyberbole I was referring to in the other thread.

    .223 is fast (high-velocity) but not particularly powerful. In a lot of places you can’t even hunt deer with it.
    .
    Unless you’re a prairie dog, that is, then it’s devastatingly powerful.
    .
    And what Clinton and Obama are really saying is that they don’t think you should have the right to defend yourself.

  3. “In the coming hours and days, we’ll learn about the victims of this tragedy. Their names. Their faces. Who they were. The joy that they brought to families and to friends, and the difference that they made in this world. Say a prayer for them…”

    Say a prayer for them?

    Statements like these show two things:

    1. People are inconsistent in their lives (like celebrating Christmas when they don’t actually believe in it).

    2. Deep down, people have a hunch that the Catholic Church is right about religious issues.

    I remember President Clinton making a similar statement years ago, telling people to pray for some deceased victims of a tragedy.

  4. Another interesting development that connects the dots is that Judicial Watch forced the revelation about June 4th, a week ago, that the British-owned worldwide security firm, G4S, for whom Mateen worked, was identified as contracting for oxymoronically- named “Homeland Security” and transporting large numbers of “OTM’s”–“other-than-Mexicans”—from the Arizona border, where they were picked up en masse, and have been shuttling them in dozens of vans continuously to the Phoenix Metro area. There, they have been dumping them, without any legal documentation process at all:

    http://azborderdefenders.org/judicial-watch-dhs-quietly-shipping-illegals-away-from-the-border-and-releasing-them/

    Needless to say, there are radical “Islamic prayer centers” now in the Phoenix area—-one of which was frequented by Elton Simpson and Nadir Hamid Soofi, the two shooters in the May 3rd, 2015 Garland,TX “Draw Muhammed” attack at the Curtis Culwell Center in that city. (Can you believe that was only about a year ago? The media does a good job in making us forget.)

    The other connection: reputedly, the brother of Omar Mir Mateen lists his work as “immigration worker”. No doubt, “helping out” where ever he can, with G4S, with all the vermin eating through our system, in the present state of simultaneous massive bureaucracy and governmental collapse.

  5. Let’s have no further speculation on the sinfulness of the victims. Whatever their sins may have been, they did not deserve to be shot down like so many rabbits. Stay focused on their murderer and the cluelessness of the Obama administration in the face of murderous Islamic terrorism.

  6. So, President Obama is arguing that security guards who are permitted to carry firearms should be prohibited by buying firearms? Yes, one of the smartest people to ever sit in the Oval Office.

  7. Actually, regarding what people (including and especially myself) deserve and do not deserve, we all – everyone of us – deserve to die, whether gunned down like rabbits or not. What is proscribed is another human assuming the authority to deliver such punishment. Saint Paul well describes our sinful state in Ephesians chapter 2 and the solution which we do NOT deserve but which God, not desiring the death of even the wicked (Ezekiel 18:32), provides to us anyways (John 3:16):
    .
    2 And you, when you were dead in your offences, and sins,
    2 Wherein in time past you walked according to the course of this world, according to the prince of the power of this air, of the spirit that now worketh on the children of unbelief:
    3 In which also we all conversed in time past, in the desires of our flesh, fulfilling the will of the flesh and of our thoughts, and were by nature children of wrath, even as the rest:
    4 But God, (who is rich in mercy,) for his exceeding charity wherewith he loved us,
    5 Even when we were dead in sins, hath quickened us together in Christ, (by whose grace you are saved,)
    6 And hath raised us up together, and hath made us sit together in the heavenly places, through Christ Jesus.

  8. I so wish Trump transmutes to altruism plus martial severity around this event like Saul being blinded by God and becoming St. Paul. Yes…he ran three casinos against each other and shunted the revenue into Manhattan real estate while leaving bondholders and contractors out to dry in the desert wind. But Saul was persecuting the Body of Christ and became the main and deepest epistle writer and missionary over above Peter the Pope in the NT canon….very much like Aquinas, the simple priest, becoming the greatest clear theologian while Augustine was the deepest but not as clear mind. Trump won’t become any of them but if he becomes serious around this issue, God will have raised him above the shallow to the useful which would be quite an advance. In any event, Trumps war on political correctness at the mega level of all media is refreshing….and he is hitting the dems where the polite Ryan would not.
    Several days ago the media was saying Ryan was moving Trump away from the Muslim ban. Things change. Any Muslim who can’t document long association with liberal mosques….should stay in the Middle East. Imans here who are long term against our Constitution….should be deported to our friend…Saudi Arabia who should take them as a courtesy.

  9. bill bannon mentioned that Inmans “who are long term aginist our Constitution should be deported to our friend Saudi Arabia who should take them as a courtesy.”

    Absolutely!

    There is a war going on. The #1 Inman stationed in our County is non other than Barack Hussein Obama. He should lead the others in this mandatory deportation exercise.
    Impeachment and deportation.

  10. Obama will not close Gitmo by executive order
    .
    Must mean he’s planning to use the Pardon Power then.

  11. Not to belabor a point, but if Jesus were asked about the shooting in Orlando, then this is probably what would happen:
    .
    Luke 13
    .
    1 There were some present at that very time who told him of the Galileans whose blood Pilate had mingled with their sacrifices. 2 And he answered them, “Do you think that these Galileans were worse sinners than all the other Galileans, because they suffered thus? 3 I tell you, No; but unless you repent you will all likewise perish. 4 Or those eighteen upon whom the tower in Silo′am fell and killed them, do you think that they were worse offenders than all the others who dwelt in Jerusalem? 5 I tell you, No; but unless you repent you will all likewise perish.”

  12. Yes Luke 13
    Also in these times we need to be very familiar with the good response of Judas “the hammer”. Maccabee.
    Our contained dithering enables those who come, like their father to kill, steal and destroy.
    It is further jeopardy to wait for what may be an indecisive and dragged out election. There must some strong leader In a position to force Obama out. Thinking people have had enough a strong moral someone in the media, the military, business could challenge and change now seems a good time to make a strong protest against the establishment- not waiting like guppies for all the walls fall.
    May God raise up a real and holy leader

  13. It is amazing to me that the first thing out of Hillary’s and Obama’s mouths is the need for more gun control. This would be totally ineffective since anyone who is as radicalized as the San Bernardino and Orlando shooters (and Paris for that matter) were will find a way to get weapons and much more destructive ones that were used in Orlando.

    The real culprit here is the almost fanatical “inclusiveness” and political correctness practiced by Hillary and Obama. Hugging, “appreciating their differences”, and trying to make this kind of person love you will never work – it is just an opportunity for them to get past your defenses.

    Besides tolerance of those with such radical views there are at least two other major questions revolving around political correctness in the Orlando incident that will eventually have to be answered:
    1. Why did the police wait for three hours before breaching the building? Common sense is that if the shooter is actively killing there should be no delays.
    2. Was this nightclub like many other in prohibiting the patrons from carrying concealed weapons? If so they were just lambs to the slaughter.

  14. Paul,
    Yes, in Hillary’s scenario, a terrorist can be totally demotivated by being turned down by a gunstore…as though he couldn’t visit a tough ghetto area and buy a tec 9 there which area Hillary would not search because profiling is way harsh in the new nutty world. Hillary conveniently hides her knowledge that the FBI ended their watch period on Mateen prior to his buying a gun. Watch her rap today. It’s like a lying match listening to both of them today with Trump saying he received tens of thousands of congradulations on twitter but NBC could only find four.
    The nightclub staff at least should have had guns and thirty people or more would have been saved. Years ago that guy would have been jumped by the patrons….knowing that some would die but others would reach him and take him down. Now in the new nutty world, the police decider in charge may be thinking about tomorrow’s press coverage and should he enter or not….which does NBC want.
