FBI chief: The Islamic State is recruiting in all 50 states

ISIS in America

Obama’s “Junior Varsity” team is here and recruiting in all 50 states. FBI director James Comey said, “What worries me most is that ISIL’s investment in social media, which has been blossoming in the last six to eight weeks in particular, will cause a significant increase in the number of incidents that we will see. That’s what I worry about all day long.” So why are we importing hundreds of thousands of Muslims? Why not halt Muslim immigration? The hostile invaders are here — why bring more in?

“Their message,” he said, Fox 13 reported, “is travel to the Caliphate, their so-called Islamic wonder world. Join us here in Iraq or Syria, and if you can’t travel, kill somebody where you are. Kill somebody in uniform, preferably in the military or law enforcement, but just kill somebody.”

It would not resonate so deeply and so strongly if it weren’t a religious imperative.

Why aren’t the supposedly peaceful teachings of Islam that are supposedly taught at American mosques not able to withstand the jihadis’ appeal?

Comey blames social media. But no tweet could motivate me to go out and slaughter anyone. It’s not the tweet, it’s the theology. It’s not the Facebook post, it’s the Islamic texts and teachings that calls for the slaughter and conquest of the unbelievers.

Group’s use of social media ‘what I worry about all day long’

FBI Director James Comey discusses terrorist threats in the U.S. during an interview in Aspen with CNN’s Wolf Blitzer.

James Comey, director of the FBI, warned at an Aspen Security Forum the current breed of ISIS is “not your parents’ al-Qaida,” and Americans need to be on alert: The terror group’s recruiting in all 50 states.

“[This] is not your parents’ al-Qaida,” he said, at the Wednesday evening event reported by the Aspen Times. “It’s a very different model. … What worries me most is that ISIL’s investment in social media, which has been blossoming in the last six to eight weeks in particular, will cause a significant increase in the number of incidents that we will see. That’s what I worry about all day long.”

Comey said al-Qaida followers used to have to search the social media sites to get news of the terror group’s goings-on. But ISIS has changed that modus operandi, he said.

“ISIL is changing that model entirely because ISIL is buzzing on your hip,” Comey said, referencing smart phones, the Aspen Times reported. “If you want to talk to a terrorist, they’re right there on Twitter Direct Messaging for you to communicate with. … The FBI’s job is to locate the people in the 50 states that are receptive to the ISIL message and stop them from committing domestic terrorism.”

Comey also said “dozens” of Americans between the ages of 18 and 62 have traveled to Mideast regions to join the terror group.

“What ISIL brings to us is a crowd-sourcing of terrorism using social media in a way that al-Qaida never imagined,” he said, Fox 13 Salt Lake City reported.

He said they’re expert at reaching the “troubled souls” and enticing them to join the group, and have spread their messages of terror through every state in the nation.

“Their message,” he said, Fox 13 reported, “is travel to the Caliphate, their so-called Islamic wonder world. Join us here in Iraq or Syria, and if you can’t travel, kill somebody where you are. Kill somebody in uniform, preferably in the military or law enforcement, but just kill somebody.”

    I know. Government’s worry about social media. What to do? Their answer: Shut down (or censor) social media! More surveillance, more cost involved. Hey, government is creating jobs!!! As it seems to me, those guys are notoriously enabled or unwilling to do basic logical connections: If A is carrying to B and B is carrying to C, then A is cause of C as well! Their “worry” will not solve any problem. It will CAUSE the ocean of problems!

    “Why aren’t the supposedly peaceful teachings of Islam that are supposedly taught at American mosques not able to withstand the jihadis’ appeal.”

    They teach peaceful teachings at mosques??? Mosques are the biggest recruiters. Close down all mosques ban islam and remove any violent muslims back to their islamic hell hole of choice.

    • stephen lamar

      I agree with the banning Islam from America 100%

    • Betty4440

      not just violent muslim’s all because if they don’t do the killing they support these killers. but they will lie about that. islam in any form should be banned in AMERICA AND THE QURAN. ALL ARE EVIL. AS IN CAIR remember them. they are now wanting an investigation in a gun owner in FL. because he has made his shop a muslim free zone. and cair is having an unholy fit. support those who fight evil.

      • jon wright

        U have the right idea Betty but it takes a lot of understanding before citizens actually want to combat these humanoid monsters in any way.Unfortunately the leftists are sympathetic to Islam. Until that 5th column bunch will take an enmity position against the humanoids there will be lots of pain and death felt. Lets look at one example. It is shameful and even treasonous by the leftists to back and help the so called “Pales’ians at their attempt to destroy Israel by such method as BDS. These nomads are of the same ilk as iSIS,hamas,hezbolah,etc the same monsters that killed our loved ones. How can we stand up to those monsters when our own are sympathizing with them?

  • Resist_Tyranny

    The NAACP is ISIS in America.

  • Rocinante44

    nothing to worry about here. the dept of jihad and the federal bureau of islam are all over this, ensuring that we all continue to live in terror of the muslims next door

    • Obamas white house or should I say black house…don’t want to be called a racist/bigot is in charge of changing the face of America!

    • Bronish

      Hey…that’s real good! Ha! DOJ and FBI….very clever. I believe it’s time for every American Patriot in America to carry and be ready for anything. If these isis types think they can murder randomly across our beloved country, heh, We The People have a little surprise for them.

  • swpbbls

    So what the FBI director is telling us is that they can turn on a dime and are everywhere among us.

    Sounds like a pandemic.

    • IslamDownpressesHumanity

      Who knows how many izlamic double agents are working in the FIB right now?
      Funny how the FIB and Boston law enforcement don’t seem to have any interest in solving the triple homicide of three Jewish men in Boston, Mass. shortly before the Boston bombing…

      • swpbbls

        How many? However many there are, they are probably at all levels of government — local, state, federal. At least that much the Chattanooga ‘true believer’ was honest about in his Facebook postings/jihadist intentions.

        • Betty4440

          it is lock and load AMERICA. the government want watch our six we have to do it our self.GOD BLESS AMERICA. AND AMERICA BLESS GOD AGAIN.

  • Dusty Koellhoffer

    Democrat pundits are saying they are only recruiting people who are mentally unstable. They are also heavily recruiting criminals from prison and bigots of the Left, as well as many of their own from mosques in America.

    You can no more reform Islam away from Mohammad than you can
    reform Christianity away from Christ.

  • Eric Saferstein

    ISIS? Al Quaeda?
    I’m far more concerned about an incredibly generic threat to national security. It’s one that James Comey and the entire federal government lack the moral courage to acknowledge. It’s called a “dominipede.” agsaf.org

  • Shuali

    The whole US administration including FBI and NS are living with their heads in the sand. In fact the whole, or almost whole US population is living with their heads in the sand. I would bet dimes to dollars that an announcement that Kaitlin Jenner will (at last) have his member removed would command more ‘enemedia’ space than the announcement that several dozen Christians were slaughtered in YEMEN!!

  • Bronish

    The answer to isis calling to “kill somebody” no matter where, is this: We The People need to be armed and ready at all times. We need a bit of that old Frontier Justice….American Patriots can and will show ises what that’s all about….big surprises often come in small pkgs….heh.

  • vincent bruce

    Non moslem men are barred from talking to moslemas.
    It may be a crime, intimidation.
    Their females don’t hesitate to report comments about islam they aren’t taught.
    The muslimas are the cheerleaders, and are just as bad as their men.
    Islam will crumble if we confine it, to its’ own 57 islamic states in the world.
    If the warlords can’t expand they will not be able to survive their own treachery.
    All moslems must be deported or quarantined for a brain disorder of islam.

    • Betty4440

      obama made a speech he has visited 56 states HE LIKED 1 MORE TO VISIT ALL 57 STATE IN AMERICA. WELL WE KNOW WHERE IS MIND WAS AT. AT THE TIME OF THAT SPEECH. and it sure wasn’t on AMERICAN STATES. now was it?

      • vincent bruce

        obama taunts us with the audacity to shove his insults in our face, we’re not a Christian nation he says, but we are one of the largest muslim countries.
        obama is the snarkiest person possible, he loves to torture Christians, he is a real live jihadist.
        The 57 islamic states, islam’s so called contributions to the world propaganda, that he spews, show obama is the most powerful moslem on the planet.
        In my life I could never have thought someone could get away with what he has done,
        I feel so lost in my own land , this scumbag obama has deflated
        America and inflated islam.
        obama is a traitor and his words prove it.
        Will he be dealt with or will we keep allowing his jihad?
        Maybe the democrats want to be an islamic fascist country.
        The democrats seem to have all the votes they need, from giving gifts, my mother used to say beware of arabs bearing gifts.

  • Roger

    It’s all lies to cover for the Muslims here in the US. They spoon feed us this Muslim propaganda to keep us quiet for another day. There is a day not to far into the future when the order will be given and the Islamist Rats will come out of hiding. Thus far they have done well keeping us maintained and blind to it all. I suspect sometime mid next year the US will be set on fire.
    Just my opinion.
    Be assured a storm is brewing over the horizon and no one can stop it but us.

    • Patricia

      I have this foreboding uneasiness that a devastation like America has never seen before will hit us September – October this year. Can’t pin down the actual straw that breaks the camel’s back but, seems like the very air is charged with anarchy, unrest and tyranny.

    Enough is enough.It is time to forget about political correctness and watch out for all Mosques, and the Inmans that preach the hate and violence toward America with their Quran and Sharia law. Most of them are financed with Middle East oil money.

    The “Trojan Horse” is here and in your neighborhood. Its time to investigate all Mosques before further homeland attacks occur on our military, far too many Inmans preach hate and violence toward America. How many more attacks will it take until America gets the message?4 Marines and one sailor are dead, as a direct result of the Mosques, Islam and the Quran what more is there to know?Have studied Islam and the Quran for several years now, have been inside Mosques and spoken to their Inmans. Let there be no mistake about it. Islam, from its beginning, has been a religion of the sword. The concept of Holy War (Jihad) mandated by Allah, requires all of Islam to completely subdue the earth through military and violent conquest. The Quran says it all. When will America wake up? One sad sick religion. They place a premium on death versus life. They will never grasp the concept of life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness on earth. Women are treated as a sub class under Islam with no rights at all. They will never adapt to our customs and culture but rather want to force Islam and Sharia upon the World.. And if they can take a Jew, Christian or infidel to their death along with them, they view it as an honor. Like it or not, politcally correct or not, we are at War with Islam. And until America recognizes that fact, more tragic deaths will result. Sharia law will continue to expand. . Mosques are hiding places for terrorists and we have 3400 plus in America. Read the truth here about Islam and the Quran and Sharia. Get a copy of “heretic” by Ayaan Hirsi Ali. a former Muslim that speaks from experience.. Violence is inherit in Islam. it is not a religion of peace. When they are praying 5 times per day they are praying for death to Jews Christians and infidels and most people are clueless. The threat is real folks. Read the book now and get the real truth. Also google “theprojectmuslimbrotherhood” and see their plan to destroy America from within. Again read the book “Heretic” a must read for all America, for truth about Islam.

    • Cate

      Yes! And it doesn’t end with monitoring all mosques. These people are in our local Starbucks, shopping in our shopping centers, living in our neighborhoods. Time to get the police and the FBI on our speed dials. EVERY SINGLE ONE of them is suspect. And NOT ONE MUSLIM can be trusted anywhere in the world. And that’s the truth.

      • haveittodayray

        Good comments

  • IslamDownpressesHumanity

    How many muslim-nazis has the FIB recruited? What’s the difference between a muslim-nazi in ISIS and one in the FIB? Don’t they BOTH have the same end game? Even if their tactics differ?

  • Lia

    Marvellous that the FBI knows this! Have they dusted off some of the forbidden & ‘purged’ manuals? Will they share with Homeland Security? With the police? With the Defence Force? With the Department of Immigration? How soon?
