More “workplace violence,” Mr. President?
American Muslim soldier: “We would love to do something like the brother in Paris did.”

Terrorism: An Illinois National Guardsman sought to fight with Islamic State as his cousin plotted to kill scores at an Illinois National Guard facility. If they had succeeded, would President Obama call it workplace violence?

President Obama’s “JV” terrorist team has metastasized to the point where its franchisees have spread across continents and oceans, with the FBI investigating ISIS-related activities and plots in all 50 states, including a very dangerous one in the commander in chief’s home state of Illinois.

One of those FBI investigations involved the arrest Wednesday of Hasan Edmonds — a supply specialist with the Illinois National Guard, who had trained at the Joliet Armory since 2011 — at Chicago’s Midway International Airport as he prepared to board a plane to Detroit and then to Cairo via Amsterdam, with the goal of joining the Islamic State.

Two hours later, authorities picked up his cousin, Jonas Edmonds, who had planned to wear Hasan’s uniform and attack the facility in the same manner that Maj. Nidal Hasan did at Fort Hood, Texas.

The cousins had scouted out the armory on Tuesday, with Hasan Edmonds picking up a copy of the facility training schedule. The plan was for Jonas Edmonds to carry out the assault using AK-47s and grenades.

As they cased the National Guard facility on Tuesday, according to a report in the Chicago Tribune, the cousins from Aurora, Ill., discussed where soldiers would be stationed inside, which rooms and areas to avoid, and the firepower required to carry out the assault. The plot was uncovered when an FBI source made connections with Hasan Edmonds on Facebook, inquiring about his plans to travel overseas to join the Islamic State.

We are mindful of the fact that not all IS recruits and sympathizers are so careless in revealing their intentions. It may be a cliche, but we have to be right all the time while terrorists only have to be right once.

If successful, the planned assault on the Joliet Armory might have mirrored the terrorist attack by Nidal Hasan, whose Nov. 5, 2009, rampage at the Army base near Killeen, Texas, killed 13, including a pregnant soldier, and wounded 32, as he shouted “Allahu Akhbar!”

The Obama administration would dismiss the attack as “workplace violence,” just as they dismissed the Islamic State as a “JV” terrorist team.

Last August, we editorialized on the implications of an anonymous tweet with a photo showing the front of the Old Republic building on Chicago’s Michigan Avenue. As a shopping mecca dubbed the Magnificent Mile, Michigan Avenue is another symbol of what, from a radical Islamist perspective, is wrong with Western culture and civilization.

      on my out of Saudi Idk what has u going.Is it my exercise of Freedom of Speech/Expression guaranteed under the Constitution the Law of the Land and the way that this country operates? If so, you are living in the wrong country. Remember, it guarantees u the right to speak freely and express what you want and you did so. We don’t throw people in prison for speaking their beliefs yet, unless you have an inside tract on fundamental things changing soon. Unless you are a Royal, and you live in S. Arabia then yes speaking your mind can be prison. Let’s thing of the positive. You spoke your mind, if you have more to say other than swears(I’d have to block you for that) I sincerely would like to have a dialog

    Recall four years ago, mullah Hussein flew an Imam overseas to spit Muslim curses over the coffins of our brave SEAL Team 6 heroes to appease the ummah in Dar al-Islam.
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_bYuUvj7-ME

    It should be clear by now that mullah Hussein also invited mullah Bergdahl to chant the bismillah in the Rose Garden because he is committed to competing with ISIS, Iran and al-Qaeda for Muslim “hearts and minds.” But if he can’t achieve his dawah mission with the heartless, brain-damaged Muslims under his own command, how can Leftists possibly accept the soundness of that strategy writ large?

    This latest episode reminds us anew that mullah Hussein’s “hearts and minds” strategy– relying on (allegedly) “moderate” Muslims to confront (much less defeat) “radical” Muslims– is an exercise in futility. Moderate, radical, Shia, Sunni, purple or red doesn’t matter– the crypto-fascist ideology called “Islam” must be pacified. Geert Wilders EU speech last Fall summed things up succinctly;

    “We are at war. War has been declared against the free West. Our freedom, our culture, the future of our country and our children are at stake. We must strike back hard… Let us bomb them.”

    With jihadists still active in the UK, EU, Oz and America’s heartland and Iran pursuing nuclear WMDs, Westerners must resurrect prudent Greatest Generation pacification strategies against Islamo-fascism. Next steps should require loyalty oaths from Muslim immigrants, outlaw the Koran (Mo’s Mein Kampf) and require Muslims individually denounce “sharia” and “jihad” or face internment or expulsion… then invoke the Truman doctrine and glass their ancient evil Kaaba.

    Shinto-fascist beheaders were only pacified the hard way by Democrats. Give 72 hours notice to evacuate, then glass the Kaaba. Mecca would make a fine proving ground for kinetic bombardment (rods from god) and excellent negotiating leverage against Tehran’s belligerance.

    No more Hajj. No more Ring of Tawaf. No more Islam. Game over…

    When is the left going to wake up and realize, we are at war with islam. How many murders, attacks, and conspiracies is it going to take to open their eyes? These are not random acts of terror by these muslims, nor a crime of desperation, it’s a concerted effort to erode our nation(s) and culture–it’s JIHAD. Everything they do works toward this shared goal. I’m disgusted by those that make this out to be a racial thing, or trivialize it as a religious difference–it’s WAR! Muslims in the West are working hard to maintain their own prejudiced, misogynist enclaves with impunity. And their terrorist brethren are working hard, too, asserting in the most violent way their islamic agenda, the same agenda taught in every mosque around the world. If we infidels can’t connect these 2 dots together then maybe we deserve to be conquered and humiliated for allah.

    Get on your knees and bump your head. Learn it now, you’ll need it.

    We cannot expect this president to do something serious and real about it. He is a muslim terrorist, defending muslim terrorists and arming muslim terrorists. Of course he’s gonna have to find the nonsense that he keeps using to define ISLAM, he’s one of them, he said it on multiple occasions. Let us not forget that, as a muslim, he shares the muslim IQ: they want to destroy America and democracy, the same system that allows them to appear on TV, to use computers, cell phones, weapons, WELFARE and all the amenities and comforts that no islamic country has been able to produce IN 1400 YEARS. They hate beauty, peace and love, they will always place the blame for their retardment on … racism, white supremacism, islamophobia, colonial thievery, bigotry, anything that happens as a reaction to their madness and retardment, but hey, that’s the muslim IQ. We see it everyday, everywhere in the world, in every circumstance.

    • JacktheRipper

      That’s right, it’s always everyone else’s fault they are so pathetic. Blame the Jews, kill the infidel, their core beliefs. Islam is like an adolescent delinquent, narcissistic, violent, a menace to good society without moral compunction. Of course I’m an Islamophobe, so I would say that.

      • Gufo

        I am, too, and very proud of it. Obviously, and to make liberals and leftists happy, we must say that no, they’re not all the same, other religions did something terrible, too, it’s all about people, and similar obvious and unnecessary statements. Of course people are all different, but let’s talk about ISLAM itself, not the people, and why it drives so many people crazy the same way, with the same outcomes, on an incredibly large scale. WHY? It must be Israel _ I forgot that one _ that long before its creation was already “causing” all the troubles and madness from muslims, of course. A key concept to understand the Arab world, yet never used to explain the muslim IQ is the phobia (a real one this time) of losing face. death is far preferable to the incredible effort required to even contemplate the possibility of being wrong. muslims would say anything to shift the blame, ANYTHING. My favorite one is “I was temporarily possessed by a djinn” which is not hard to believe, indeed.

    In this case, I think the COC, BHO would pulled the race card out of the hat, and how these poor men were treated growing up and couldn’t advance In life and how Islam offered them a means to find their freedom but they misunderstood and had an imperfect understanding of their teaching and they were also influenced by IS on the WEB. He would declare that their civil rights were violated and send the Attorney General to look in on them. Does all the sound about right. This President is out of control. Articles of Impeachment NOW

    The Information Age Will Be The Death
    Of Islam
    Islam is an ideology which teaches the inferiority
    of women, the killing and hatred of Jews, the execution of homosexuals, the
    silencing of free speech, forced amputations, the stoning of rape victims,
    genital mutilation, and the violent overthrow of all non-Islamic governments
    and civilizations all based on the life of Mohammad, “the perfect man.”

    I have no respect for those who follow Islam, as Islam is the greatest killing machine in
    the history of mankind bar none. The enemy of Islam is information.
