Let’s hope law enforcement thwarts them all today —

“Rochester ISIS Wannabe Emanuel Lutchman Planned New Year’s Machete Attack,” by Jonathan Dienst and Tom Winter

Federal officials in Rochester, New York, have arrested and charged a local man who was allegedly plotting a New Year’s Eve machete attack on diners at a local restaurant in the name of ISIS.

Emanuel Lutchman, 25, an ex-con Muslim convert with mental issues, was charged with attempting to provide material support to the terrorist group, federal prosecutors said.

A criminal complaint alleges that Lutchman was in contact with a reputed ISIS member in Syria, who urged him kill non-Muslims on New Year’s as a sign of his allegiance.

“New years is here soon. Do operations and kill some kuffar,” the overseas contact told him, the court papers allege.

On Dec. 27, Lutchman sent a confidential informant an audio recording of himself swearing allegiance to ISIS and its leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi.

“The FBI thwarted Emanuel Lutchman’s intent to kill civilians on New Year’s Eve,” said Special Agent in Charge Adam Cohen of the bureau’s Buffalo division.

“The FBI remains concerned about people overseas who use the Internet to inspire people in the United States to commit acts of violence where they live.”

    Hope everyone is locked and loaded as you head out tonight for New Years’ celebrations! Don’t leave home without it!

    • Millionmileman

      LQQKs like so in Israel as Hezbollah is getting ready to crack open the Champagne. The good news is the UN will be drunk over the weekend and not able to convene with reason until Tuesday!

        The Muslim country-dominated U.N. will never be able to “convene with reason”.

    • Lenn

      We Europeans soooo envy you that you are able to leave home ‘locked and loaded’! Here, we are just soft targets…

        May I suggest that at least you buy and keep handy in your car a neat axe and a heavy-ish steel shaft, like one of those long bars on which you fit a socket for removing car wheel nuts or bolts. They can do serious damage to a skull or neck.

    Execute the savages. Next case

  • Pray Hard

    I can’t wait for a Muslim to attack me with a machete. It’ll be funny watching him vomit blood after I hit him.

    • joker

      You will be charged with islamphobia and racial hate crime. Better he or she does not vomit at all.

    • IslamophobicCanadianAthiest

      A Double Tap into the stomach/lower intestines is OK in that case.

      Gives you more time to savor the moment.

  • Another Obama monkey l sos!

    Let the fbi do its job without political interference, only supervision it requires is a committee of knowledgeable patriotic citizens to assure it stays within the constitution. something the president has not.

  • thisguy

    Perobably mad because he is hot judging by the fan in the background, should shave that nasty beard and get out of that trash bag he is wearing.

  • Drew the Infidel

    No wonder the FBI is having trouble keeping tabs on these potential murderers. The description of “ex-con Muslim convert with mental issues” doesn’t narrow it down very much.

  • knight

    Come on the elections and hope Trump wins and sticks to his guns.

  • joker

    An ex-con with mental issues converted to islam, sounds allright to me.

    • SCREW SOCIALISM

      What better pool of new adherents for a religion of beheading, stoning, hijacking, bombing stabbing, shooting, acid throwing, than prisons and mental hospitals.

    • Rob Porter

      “An ex-con with mental issues converted to islam” – what’s new?

  • Iamnumber6

    “Emanuel Lutchman, 25, an ex-con Muslim convert with mental issues”.

    Exactly. He had mental issues because he converted to islam. Islam does that to people. It should be banned.

    Problem with the Qur’an is that it spews intolerance and slaughter as a form of barbaric justice. It need to be banned in civilized society.

    Problem with sharia is that adherence to it even if one is Kuffar, is the surrender of civility which defines what a free society is.
