“We are treating this as an act of domestic terrorism,” said Bill Killian, U.S. Attorney for the Eastern District of Tennessee.

U.S. Attorney William C. Killian said. However, Killian said that the investigation would bear out precisely what kind of crime this was, and he cautioned people not to get caught up in the label. (Washington Post)

How ironic that it is Bill Killian — who was the most reluctant official to speak at today’s press conference. William Killian is the Department of Justice official who vowed to criminalize social postings on Facebook and Twitter.

We held a protest against Mr. Killian, and thousands joined us here.

Killian should be removed from the case. He is incapable of conducting a sharia-free investigation.

    Since lynch was appointed by obama and passed by congress (what isn’t passed by those traitors?) no doubt the DOJ is filled with members of the islam cult.

  • Paul A Hall

    The DOJ is filled with these traitors!

    • Tyrannocankles rex

      And in January 2017, THEY’RE FIRED!

      • Paul A Hall

        Not soon enough! God damn these Islamic apologists. My son almost went there today. We were there 2 days ago. We were standing where the bullet holes were.

        • Tyrannocankles rex

          Thank G_d you’re OK. Prayers for these soldiers, and a vow that they will not have died in vain. It’s time to end this madness.

          • Paul A Hall

            At first they said the Marines were killed at the lee hwy office…I’d met those guys if anything would have convinced me to let my son join it was them..squared away honorable men…the type of guys you’d want your son to become…the Marines that were murdered had the same integrity honor and courage…unarmed slaughtered Muslim style

          • autdrew

            Omg how frightening!! My husband was in the Corps (including Recruiting Duty) for 16 years. Our 16 year old son wants to join to. He’s about to start his 3rd year of ROTC ahead of going.
            I can’t imagine how awful that was for you after so recently being there with your son

          • Paul A Hall

            Just last Friday I said to a military friend that the worst place the terrorists could attack was a small city in the heart of America. Thank you for your kindness!

          • paendragon

            The unarmed part of it was pure liberal style!

          • Paul A Hall

            Thank you!

      • GTH_BHO

        really, who are you assuming will be President at that time?

        • Tyrannocankles rex

          Whoever grinds Cankles into the mat the hardest. I’m still hedging my bets, but Trump Truth is becoming my litmus test on who’s worthy.

          • munchenfez

            Would that be Dhimmi Don who criticised PG about the cartoon exhibition?

          • Tyrannocankles rex

            One and the same. He was spouting PCBS like everybody else until he broke cover. Great tactic. Caught the PC police and Gaystapo enforcers totally off-guard, to say nothing of the RINOs.

            Look at him. He STOLE Geller’s style, and a page from her book.

          • GTH_BHO

            I am liking the fact that Trump is making topical things others prefer to avoid. Trump is bringing up what is on the minds of the people that fund this country. Not the people who have their hands stuck out or those that fill their hands with what they pickpocket from you.
            The problem I envision is there aren’t enough of the bill payers to swing the election in their favor. We’re past the tipping point best I can tell and Obama is dead-set on ensuring the floodgates remain open.
            Large numbers getting driver’s licenses with that little “voter reg” card combined with feds STOPPING voter ID checking sounds like permanent democrat election wins to me.

          • sandra schmidt

            Let us hope that their typical lazy, manana attitude will prevent much voting on their part.

          • Jonathan Vlietstra

            Yeah, when every citizen is allowed to vote, the Dems would win. Republicans need to keep millions of legitimate voters from being able to vote in order to stay in power.

          • St. Michael Defend Us

            Don’t worry, in my area dead people vote all the time.

          • St. Michael Defend Us

            And, in my state, the food assistance application (food stamps)
            is also a voter registration form!
            So, don’t worry, plenty of people will still be voting Dem!

          • Anticonservative

            Mine too- actually 9 out of 10 dead people are on record to have voted for Obama last election. So it stands to reason that if the Democrats maintain their strong support from the cemeteries they will be a shoe-in for the next one. Between the dead and illegals Hillary still may have a chance to be the next President.

          • Dawg_em

            In my area dead people meet Jesus. Justice is served.

          • Tyrannocankles rex

            There’s a way to win with Trump, and possibly some of the others. I’ll elaborate in future posts on a deletion-proof site.

        • sandra schmidt

          Trump. The only truth teller of the bunch.

      • sandra schmidt


  • Hugh Lunn

    The ayatollahs veto any nuclear weapon inspection regime under BHO’s
    deal with Iran. Likewise Imam Bill Killian will insure that “domestic
    terroism” investigations will be sharia friendly.

  • aposematic

    Islam Obuma sends his fellow Islam loving DOJ panty waste MSM/Press/DemonicRat’s out to defend Islam of the Islamic murder of 4 Marines…awake yet the rest of you dumb ass Americans.

    • Tyrannocankles rex

      Yup. Worst possible official.

      Trump will need to divert the Mighty Mississippi through Washington to clean out the filth. Start keeping lists. The scum has names, and those names need to be FIRED.

  • Jack Holan

    Yes, domestic terrorism seems to be the operative buzz phrase now. Recently, the categorization of the Major Nidal from workplace violence to Act of Intl terrorIsm was VERY SIGNIFICANT. It gave the survivors of the fallen benefits previously not offered and those wounded were also entitled to certain rights plus both were awarded the purple heart medal. If this US Attorney keeps this as ‘domestic’ terrorism I’m not sure what will happen with the fallen marines and other wounded soldier. PC is far more important and its important to keep that positive image now with ‘Deal’ at stake. A real piece of work. The most disturbing issue is the arrest the other day of someone calling another terrorist and he is arrested for denying him of his Civil Rights. The US Attorney wanting to criminalize Freedom of Speech. Where is the ACLU? Pamela you seem to be the only one standing up for Freedom, just stay safe. You are too nice and too important.

  • Bill Killian is a muslim brotherhood member and SYMPATHIZER!!

    • Tyrannocankles rex

      MOO – Minion Of Obama.

    • floam

      Obama is the enemy and many legislators, media, and d.c. establishment know it. He is a muslim raised in marxist theory. Watch his actions. They speak much louder than the words/lies that he constantly spews.

  • fuckthescum

    muslim scum, scum of the earth, scum, put jihad on jihad

    the entire executive branch has become the nation of islam. do you really think they care about 4 dead white cracker marines?

    Another traitor revealed.

      So, You have Soetero, Pellosi, Brennan, Read.. Who else? Let’s list them..

      • grayjohn

        The internet isn’t big enough to list them all.

  • Davey Lindsey

    The government, from top to bottom, has been filled with either Muslims or sympathizers. Our Dear country is on the brink of total chaos. I’m prepared, you should be as well.

    • Budvarakbar

      Do not forget the huge contingent of gays, lesbos, metrosexuals, and fag-hags

      • sandra schmidt

        Why the hate for us gay people? Are you an ISIS sympathizer? This is a free country asshole. Deal with it.

        • Dorrie

          It isn’t “hate,” sandra, it’s realism. The homosexual agenda is trying to wipe out Christianity in the U.S. and have admitted it. YOU might not personally be involved with the hate-mongering activists, but you’ve aligned yourself with them just by admitting you are living a perverse life.

          • sandra schmidt

            There is nothing perverse about my life. The only thing that is perverse is your obsession with it.

          • Dorrie

            I’m far from obsessed with ANYTHING regarding you. But you have admitted your perversion, which only means you need to REPENT and ask God’s forgiveness!

          • sandra schmidt

            No, Dorrie, you are the one who needs to repent. Only G-d has the right to judge, certainly not you. You are a Pharisee wannabe and you will get the reward you deserve eventually.

          • Dorrie

            God’s people are told to use “righteous judgment.” And no, I am not able to judge one’s eternal soul, but I AM told to judge their immoral behavior. And you have already admitted you live a perverse lifestyle that God has called an ABOMINATION.

            As for my own repenting, you BET I repent – every day in every way I examine my walk with Yeshua, to make sure I live a holy life to Him. I am secure in Him. But I’m so sorry for you.

          • Dorrie

            Lesbian Activist Camille Paglia said:

            “Homosexuality is not normal. On the contrary, it is a challenge to the norm. Nature exists whether academics like it or not. And in nature, procreation is the single relentless rule. That is the norm. Our sexual bodies were designed for reproduction. No one is born homosexual. The idea is ridiculous. Homosexuality is an adaptation, not an inborn trait.

            So there ya have it, sandra schmidt. :-)

  • cristo52

    The FBI director should resign. Followed by DHS chief Johnson. This is not “domestic terrorism.” It’s part of the progressive sabotage being used to undermine the U.S.

    • dfw63

      Jeh Johnson can’t resign, he’s black. We would be racists if we accepted his resignation.
      Be thankful you have Obongo to prevent you from being a racist.

      • Feet2Fire

        “Jeh Johnson can’t resign…”

        “WHO?” ??

        • St. Michael Defend Us

          Secretary of Homeland Security. Cabinet member to Obama.

          He’s in the news all the time. Not in a good way.

          • Feet2Fire

            Guess the “sarcasm” notation was needed…

            “WHO?” ??

            The jerk didn’t even know (or pretended not to know) who THE STEINLE FAMILY is… He responded “WHO??” when asked if the administration had contacted the Steinle Family. Was JABBING HIM in the post for being such an A$$.

          • St. Michael Defend Us

            Thanks. I realized you were being sarcastic AFTER I made my comment.
            With the written word, instead of the spoken, I sometimes have trouble picking up on some things.

          • Feet2Fire


    • Marc Lee

      Forget Johnson, it’s past time to defund DHS. Tons of taxpayer dollars for them to do nothing they were created to do? Anyone feel like our homeland is more secure?, or our borders?, or our rights and freedoms?, Just more of this subversive administration with blood on their hands.

  • Tyrannocankles rex

    Doesn’t this guy just look like the feckless government minion in some movie we’ve all seen?

    Just sayin’….

  • Robbins Mitchell

    Pam et al: Allow me if I may to post the text of a letter I sent to the Knoxville office of the FBI when US Atty Killian was making noises about prosecuting critics of Islam….it regards both Killian and FBI agent Kenneth Moore,who was also publicly making the same noises as Killian…..it was sent on May 31,2013

    “Just out of curiousity, …when did Kenneth Moore first decide that kissing mohammed’s @$$ was part of his job
    description?….now don’t mistake my meaning…if some unclean
    medieval 3rd world barbarian wants to bow down to a meteorite
    in the Arabian desert by sticking his derrier in the air like
    a punk waiting to be mounted by an alpha male so he can honor an illiterate mass murdering pedophile who claimed to be the
    “messenger” of an obscure Arabian moon
    “god”, then he has every right to do so…I mean I
    use a page from the koran every time I need to take a
    mohammed…it’s just so much softer than Charmin…but when
    some okeydoke plantation pickaninny like Kenny becomes house
    queer for the Muslim Brotherhood,then he is stepping on MY
    toes….now I don’t really expect the boy to protect and
    defend MY civil rights…I am perfectly capable of doing that
    myself without the help of some servant class pi$$ant who has
    evidently spent most of his career tap dancing through the
    watermelon patch….but if he is stupid enough to delude
    himself into thinking that he can intimidate Americans into
    silence when they choose to post content online that is
    critical of Islam and their so called “prophet” by
    threatening them with arrest and prosecution for
    “violating the civil rights” of people who would
    just as soon kill me as look at me if they had the chance,then
    the boy is clearly a pork chop short of a full soul food
    dinner…..so let’s just say that this email is my way of
    preemptively pi$$ing in his face and putting the FBI on notice
    that this blatantly Unconstitutional policy that has been set
    forth by Tom Perez of the DOJ civil rights division at the
    behest of the Muslim Brotherhood and CAIR,will henceforth be
    treated with the scorn,derision and contempt it so richly
    deserves…even before US Attorney Killian has a chance to
    publicly announce it in Manchester,TN on June 4th with Kenny
    there to hold his coat and act as his stooge and flunky”

    Robbins Mitchell

    …..Killian is a real piece of work,Pam…do a background search on him…he should have been disbarred years ago

      If you wanted to offend, congrats, a job well done. If you wanted to make a point, the job was done even better.

  • AndrewDrive

    Let us see if this bunch tries to cover up the murderer’s muslim contacts.
    There were an excessive number of self serving politicians and bureaucrats at the microphone. No USMC reps. present at the briefing; should have been, they are the heroes, they and law enforcement, and not the politicians and federal agents jockeying for microphone time.

  • Jurg Bangerter

    Domestic terrorism? give me a break this is islamic terrorism,its islamo-fascism as seen all over the world, this apologistic State Attorney has to go..USA need people who can take actions against this Islamo-Fascist immigrants and deport em back to their homelands..

  • conan_drum

    The former leader of our Labour Party during the recent election campaign said the same thing. Probably in a cheap attempt to get the Muslim vote. Nobody is saying so of course but I think it lost him a lot of votes

    This administration terminated Robert Spencer from educating our military and FBI about Islam. Above all else tyrants hate an educated people, an armed people and a vocal people. As Pogo put it so many years ago “we have met the enemy and they is us.” I am amazed at the sheep that scolded Donald Trump to dare suggest establishment of a secure border. We have a group of sheep in our population that are determined to live in a fantasy no matter how many are murdered.
    We must insist on the repeal of Clinton’s disbarment of our “Armed” Forces on their own turf. I know this will be difficult for some to grasp.
    Does anyone know where this “MohamMAD” got his class III firearm? If reports are correct and it was a full auto.

  • Roger

    Ever wonder why the Military don’t carry forearms on military bases? Jimmy Carter!

  • Roger

    I am sick of the coward, lying liberal pukes getting center stage of the press reports. We can’t get an honest investigation done because of the liberals trying to cover up the truth and protect one of their own. Robert Spencer is the result of liberals being in charge of our country.

      I guess for the same reason homosexual activists do . . . they’re demonic.

      • sandra schmidt

        No. Gays are just a natural variation within the human species.

        • Dorrie

          No. Homosexuals (not gay) are a perversion. FAR from “natural” and their activists are DEMONIC!

    Thank god we’ve had such important things like Jenner, Gay Marriage, and the Confederate flag to worry about the last several months or years, instead of minor inconsequential stuff like Islamic terrorism, black on white crime, and the economy.

    Within his Indonesian Shiite upbringing, President Obama adopted a world of willful blindness to jihad, willful blindness to the source of terrorism, and willful blindness to the growing strength of ISIS and wilful blindness to Iran. Appropriately Obama raised up DOJ’s Killian, a man possessed of a Maniacal need to exonerate Islam as the inspiration to world wide terrorism and thereby sycophantically placate his President.
    It is not surprising that Under Killian we also have the FBI’s Reinhold who In the Pre – Obama American FBI (Circa 1776 to 2008) would have said;

    “We will treat this as a terrorism investigation “UNLESS” we can
    determine that it’s not,” Mr. Reinhold said in a press conference.

    But no!..what did FBI’s Reinhold say? We have Reinhold the Killian puppet stating at yesterday’s FBI news conference

    “We will treat this as a terrorism investigation “UNTIL” we
    can determine that it’s not,” Mr. Reinhold said that in a press conference.

    “Terrorism … we can determine that it is not…in other words until we can spin it the way the President wants thereby “avoiding the truth about the “Religion of

    Regardless of how many are killed by Jihadist’s in America Obama’s DOJ and FBI predispose themselves to gather evidence to support Obama’s relentless self serving prophecies that “Jihadist Terrorism, is not Terrorism and has nothing at all to do with Islam.

    Wait for it….it is already happening

    So what is Islam?

    Islam is best described as :A Religion that is like the Aliens from the movie “Mars
    Attacks” – “We come in Peace” where peace to them means killing everyone
    not like them it’s just a matter of waiting until their numbers are
    sufficient like in Syria, Iraq, Nigeria, Sudan, Lebanon, etc.

      The Mayor of Seattle today told the media that he would help all Muslims coming there who want Sharia.

  • Killian is , apparently, precisely the type of pro-Islam attitude Obama wants to represent his Administration in the investigation of this obviously terrorist criminal activity.

    FACT: A muslim man went to 2 U.S. military bases and killed 4 marines, also wounding a police officer. There’s really NOTHING ELSE we need to know. You can call it any kind of terrorism you like, but the American people aren’t that stupid, and they know with certainty, that this was an act of ‘ISLAMIC TERRORISM’. So, stick it up your ass Killian!!!!!!

  • byronmullet

    Bulldoze every mosque that produces a jihadist. Expose the Quran for what it is, a terrorist manifesto. Remove the tax exemption for Islam. Congress should reprimand the president for promoting the terrorist ideology of Islam, which implicitly endorses the Quran and contributes to violence. Mainstream Islam is just as much of the problem as so-called “fundamental” or “extreme” Islam. Islam is extreme and does an extreme make over on those inculcated with it’s barbaric “norms.”

    In case America has not noticed; the muslim killers and the democRATic killers have always chosen a “gun free zone” to do their murders. These killers are a bunch of chicken-s**t. Cowards, every one of them. They want to murder non-muslims in a way which “ENABLES” them to be able to kill more than one Person.
    I call the YELLOW COWARDS!!!!!!!!!!!!
    ‘b.obama’ is included with the muslims. I still do not understand how he is alive when muslims kill homosexual people. Yet Americans TOLERATE homos without killing them.
