Geller: ‘Motive Unknown’–The Consequences of Jihad Denial
By Pamela Geller, Breitbart News, December 4, 2015

Obama shrugged. Hillary shrugged. The media shrugged.

“We do not yet know why this terrible event occurred,” said Barack Obama.

“No matter what motivation these shooters had, we can say one thing for certain—they shouldn’t have been able to do this,” said Hillary Clinton.

“Motive unknown.” That’s the mantra from the Obama administration and his running dogs in the media. Obama rushed to say that the motive was undetermined, but when a leftist follower of the Southern Poverty Law Center murdered three Muslims in North Carolina, Obama immediately ascribed the killings to “Islamophobia,” when in fact they were the act of a deranged man who was enraged over a parking dispute, and who had repeatedly said that he preferred Muslims to Christians.

Here’s the motive: it has now been revealed that as the San Bernardino jihad attack was taking place, Syed Farook’s wife and accomplice, Tashfeen Malik, put up a post on Facebook in which she pledged allegiance to the Islamic State (ISIS).

This was jihad terror. This was premeditated, methodical, and well planned. The bombs left behind at the site were for first responders. They deleted their email accounts and smashed their cellphones, no doubt to cover up their contacts with other jihadis.

Some have downplayed this connection to other jihadis, saying that the attack was inspired, not directed, by ISIS. That is a distinction without a difference. ISIS has directed devout Muslims to “think globally, act locally.” They have directed Muslims who accept their authority as the caliphate to kill American civilians on U.S. soil. That is their explicit directive, and that is exactly what this cell did. Yet Josh Earnest in Friday’s press conference still refuses to acknowledge the terror connection.

Meanwhile, there are still more unanswered questions than ones on which we have clarity. The Feds have not even been able to tell us exactly who Tashfeen Malik (if that is her real name) is, or provide a picture of her, or records of where she came from, when she married Syed Farook, when their child was born, or proof that Syed is indeed the father and that she had a legitimate claim to be in this country.

Tashfeen Malik was subjected to background checks by the FBI and the Department of Homeland Security before she was allowed to enter the country. She passed both. That is a stunning indictment of Obama’s vaunted “vetting process” for the Syrian refugees he is intent upon inflicting upon this country.

You can avoid reality, but you cannot avoid the consequences of avoiding reality. Muslim immigration, the rise of Islamic jihad armies in the Middle East and Africa, and the sanction (even exaltation) of jihad front groups in the U.S. such as the Hamas-tied Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) (how did they get to the family so fast?) have provided the enemy with ample opportunity to grow exponentially. And they have taken full advantage of that opportunity.

In the wake of this jihad attack, Obama wishes to disarm the victims — as if that would stop the jihadists. Machete-wielding Muslims slaughtered a dozen Chinese commuters and wounded over a hundred at a major commuter train station in China. The commuters had no weapons – no way to fight back.

And it has happened here. How would gun control have stopped the Muslim college student in California who recently stabbed four innocent people while carrying an ISIS flag, with the attendant references to Allah and beheadings?

San Bernardino is in one of the most stringent gun control states in the country. The fact is that these mass shootings usually take place in gun-free zones — except for the attempted jihad massacre at our free speech event in Garland, Texas last May. That jihad attempt had the best of all possible outcomes, because the jihadis were greeted by armed freedom fighters.

Besides gun control, the media and Obama’s administration are obsessed with the prospect of an “anti-Muslim backlash.” Obama, Hillary, Attorney General Loretta Lynch, the media — they are all groveling before Islam, scrubbing and mopping up after this latest jihad attack, and still it’s not enough. Devout Muslims slaughtered innocent Americans at a Christmas party, and now comes the second wave of the attack — charges of racism (Islam is not a race) and “Islamophobia.”

American Muslims for the umpteenth time are wailing about a fear of reprisals – reprisals that never actually come in reality, but are always the focus of media obsession after every jihad attack. The blood of American Christians and Jews is still on the floor and the walls of a Christmas party, and they are playing the victim. How savage.

Why aren’t American Muslims mourning our dead? Why aren’t American Muslims using their money and influence to call for an “enlightenment” in Islam, a purge of the Quran and the Islamic texts and teachings that call for jihad and genocide?

Law enforcement has been just as compromised as the government and the media: I have been watching CNN — yes, unbelievable (a first), but the failings of FOX are too big to stomach. So imagine my horror when I switched it on and saw swarms of reporters inside the home of Syed Farook and Tashfeen Malik. Qurans everywhere, passports, drivers licenses of family members are strewn about.

They released the crime scene? There were no fingerprint forensics anywhere. How do they know who came and went into that apartment?

The FBI did this? Even CNN’s law enforcement analysts appeared shocked by what CNN’s reporters (and other reporters) were doing. They had never seen a crime scene of this magnitude opened to the public so early.

This was an Islamic cell with many people involved. Who gave the order to release the scene? Obama? And how much evidence was destroyed by these reporters tramping through the house? How much of the jihad killers’ activities and contacts were obscured and lost forever?

What’s the result of the universal government, law enforcement and media denial and obfuscation of the reality of the Islamic jihad against the United States? San Bernardino
— and there will be many more San Bernardinos.

Obama’s jihad-free counter terror policies and jihad denial is the cause of this catastrophic intelligence and law enforcement failure. Obama has blood on his hands (adding to the rivers of blood of Christians in Syria and Iraq.) But the message from the administration is, Get used to it. Disarm and get used to it. And the media follows after him like the man with the shovel after the circus elephant, always eager to clean up the messes he makes.

  • Dug FmJamul

    If Islam is not the problem and Muslims are really peaceful Mr. Obama should fired all of his Secret Service Agents and replace them with Muslims and see how long it takes for one of them to behead Obama for leaving Islam.

    • iWildwood

      Who says he left Islam?

      • ermom

        Since I learned about Dar al-Harb, and what the Qur’an, Hadiths, and suras allow, even encourage Muslims to do, while their numbers are low in a ‘House of War’, a non-Muslim, non-Sharia country, besides lying to infidels, TAQIYYA, but to even lie to other Muslims, as long as their intent is pure, in advocating for Islam, they may EVEN DENY THEIR RELIGION…well, IF Obama is a Muslim, then this would fit. AND it would make sense of what’s been coming out of our White House, including his giving Iran nukes. Then there’s Iranian-born Valerie Jarrett. Nothing else makes sense.

        • Dug FmJamul

          I have know that sense 3 months after 9/11.

      • Dug FmJamul

        Well, lets find out. Obama should do exactly what I said in a sign of good faith, don’t you think?

        • joker

          Basically saying the Pope ought to go around without the best protection force in the world because he has faith in Christ Jesus.

          • Dug FmJamul

            The Pope’s Security Personal are all Christians, devoted Christians….Obama should have some devoted Muslims to protect him to send a message to US and the World…we can trust Muslims…because I do….anything less just validates my point.

    • Mahou Shoujo

      Good point, if muslims are trustworthy, hire them to guard the democratic party scrap brass, and every federal building. O, and security at every international airport as well. What could go wrong?

      • Dug FmJamul

        Of just send Muslims to fight ISIS in Syria?

        • Mahou Shoujo

          Please stay on the line, all our muslims are busy colonizing europe right now. Your cultural genocide is important to us. You will be invaded in the order your call was received. Thank you for pandering to jihadist terrorism.

    • Po Tato

      The day Hussein Obama leaves islam all of us would know —> Sun rises from the West

    • Budvarakbar

      You ARE nuts — that bastard never left Islam!!

      • Dug FmJamul

        I never said he left Islam, but I’m giving Obama a way to show US just how trustworthy Muslims can be, why not?

        • joker

          I believe when you under protection of real Muslims you are safe.

          • Dug FmJamul

            Only if you’re a ‘Good Muslim’….

            Muslim:C9B1N33 – “The Prophet said: ‘I have been commanded to fight against people till they testify there is no god but Allah, that Muhammad is the Messenger of Allah, and they establish prostration prayer, and pay Zakat. If they do it, their blood and property are protected.'”

            Infidels have no such protection.

  • Po Tato

    Hussein Obama shrugged

    Hillary Shrugged

    The lame stream media shrugged

    But many Universities and colleges throughout America are not shrugging – in fact, th ey are issuing edict to get rid of anything that has any connection to Christmas !

    http://www.bizpacreview.com/2015/12/05/universities-say-mistletoe-secret-santa-red-and-green-decor-arent-politically-correct-281164

    From Cornell University to to UT-Knoxville to Ohio State University, items such as the mistletoe are under attack, because the mistletoe has failed to create “an environment of inclusion”

    Furthermore, Christmas parties must have no emphasis on religion or culture

    Additionally, if a gift exchange is planned, calling it “Secret Santa” is inappropriate

    Is this the America we know?

    Is this still the the United States of America which I fought for, which many of my comrades died for??

    • harbidoll

      stage 2– the diminishing of religion, (except Islame).

      • Po Tato

        Why ‘diminishing’ when they ban it outright?

        After all they are all fascists!

  • harbidoll

    It has become such a routine, terrorist attack people, Obama attacks guns. Are they working together? no, don’t go there.

  • Mahou Shoujo

    Politicians are known liars, but democrats have, without a doubt, become so blatant about it that it is impossible to wonder if there is a single functioning brain cell in the entire party. No one can believe the garbage they solemnly spew as though they knew what they were taking about.

    • Po Tato

      Umm… them democrats have their cells wired in the reverse …

      Their brains are filled with sh*t while they do their thinking using their butts

      • Mahou Shoujo

        That makes perfect sense.

    • cleantruth

      But they have POWER and the Muslim-leftist alliance vote will give them more POWER
      and it is over our dead bodies – something which does not concern them much.

      • Tearlag

        But their power is illusory. When their moslem superiors are through with them, their throats will be cut the same as the rest of islam’s “enemies,” i.e. what remains of civilization.

        • cleantruth

          Not illusory – temporary.
          Yes they are short sighted
          Short-sighted because they are shallow and arrogant.

      • Mahou Shoujo

        It should concern the rest though, what will it take to get society mobilized against the plague that is on it?

    • bitterlyclinging

      If you hate God and the US Constitution, you vote Democratic.

      • Mahou Shoujo

        There is increasingly more evidence to support your statement.

        • bitterlyclinging

          Not mine, BTW, borrowed in from bearingarms proprietor Bob Owens.
          The truth of that statement was painfully obvious long before our Muslim Apologist in Chief and Worldwide Islamic Caliphate enabler criticized the Christians who participated in the Crusades.
          “America has always been a Muslim country” be closer to the moment of serendipity. The recent C’mon down!” call to all Syrian jhadis, welcoming them to America’s shores be the culmination of Barack’s (Named after Mohamed’s horse) wish.

          • Mahou Shoujo

            Islam is an upstart cult that makes no attempt to cover rape, murder, theft and any number of other socially reprehensible traits. It is good that bombing them in the middle east is encouraging more to join isis. They are easier to exterminate in larger colonies than as individuals hiding behind women and children.

          • bitterlyclinging

            Or you could put a very large, well trained, experienced group of well trained Seals, Rangers etc in a centralized location with immense logistical support, and kill them all, en mas, as they all out attack trying to gain American scalps to hang in their tents as trophies, a nest of very nasty vipers disguised as low hanging fruit waiting to be picked.
            Obama would f#$k it up anyway, sending ’em messages 45 minutes in advance, or some such Neville Chamberlain act of omission or stupidity, wouldn’t want that much Muzzie blood flowing into the sands. Bad for the enviro… Tom Steyer would be pissed. Obama would miss Tom’s dick not being up his ass, Tom’s donation checks not flowing into his accounts.

          • Mahou Shoujo

            Until high level political interference is removed, there will be constant trouble with islam.

          • bitterlyclinging

            Oh! Do you mean our Muslim Apologist In Chief and Worldwide Islamic Caliphate Enabler?

          • Mahou Shoujo

            Here I thought I was being quietly discrete, but yes, that the one.

          • Steve

  • hal8196

    It appears that the government wanted the crime scene compromised so that any future legal proceedings will be thwarted with the argument that the crime scene was not secure. Very diabolical indeed. The Muslim Brotherhood jihadists, like the communists, are very cunning, and have bought a lot of protection from politicians and media. IMO

    Obama: It’s ‘insane’ that people on the ‘no-fly’ list can buy guns

    By Eugene Scott, CNN Sat December 5, 2015 |
    Video Source: The White House

    This is one crafty b@$***d.

    Ben Shapiro / Breitbart: Who Were The Terrorist Influences Syed Farook Communicated With?

    The federal government didn’t have Syed Farook on a terror watch list or a no-fly list. According to CNN, however, Farook was “in touch with people being investigated by the FBI for international terrorism, law enforcement officials said Thursday.” If so, why wasn’t Farook on a watch list? Who are these influences?

    • cleantruth

      Farook and his family were and are Moderate Muslims. They therefore are no threat and never have been.
      Now stop rabble-rousing comrade or Loretta Lynch will arrest you and throw the Sharia Law Book at you. America is being raped by Islam, – you are supposed to shut up about it.

      • wildjew

        How many moderate Muslims are there in the world? Maybe one or two; possibly three?

        • cleantruth

          No those were dragged to death behind a Jeep in Gaza Square and the last one was hanged in Iran. Legend says there was one in Chicago. some say he’s hiding up in the Catskills.

        • IzlamIsTyranny

          There used to be a moderate muslim living at the corner of Pico & Sepulveda, but then he moved and no one knows where he is now. Once he moved so did the entire “moderate” muslum movement.

    • IzlamIsTyranny

      Um, the No-fly list is an arbitrary list created by G-d knows who. There is no oversight on who is put on the list, or who is taken off the list. As a matter of fact, it’s a secret list. To make the No-fly list a method of revoking the 2nd amendment rights of US citizens is insane and would play right into the hands of the fascist left and their muslum masters.

  • KimWilde

    Why are there no jihad attacks on obama ? He obliviously is a sodumite and hated by islam ? Why are American politicians never attacked by them ?

    “Why aren’t American Muslims using their money and influence to call for an
    “enlightenment” in Islam, a purge of the Quran and the Islamic texts and teachings that call for jihad and genocide?”

    Very simple answer: If that were to happen, islam would cease to exist. Period. Full stop.

    • Susan

      Won’t happen. If they did that all that would be left is a pamphlet. Islam is based on an evil warlord who raped, murdered, enslaved and conquered in the name of his made up god allah. Who, for the record, was a pagan Arab moon god. How can a lie like islam survive. Why do you think muslims are allowed to lie to cover up this crap? Islam can not stand the light of truth.

    I too don’t understand their motive. They were undoubtedly Muslim with a hatred of the west, and a desire to conquer the world for Islam.

    I’m serious in my question. How does this help the jihad in their minds?

  • Steve

    O’dumber keeps crowing double speak about not knowing why terrorists kill as if he can flim flam “workplace violence” into the mix (unlikely) to divert attention from “islamist terrorism”. The delusion is to persuade citizens to believe that if they give up their guns we would be safer.If these so-called moderate islamists gone rogue killed for islam or workplace violence (hardly plausible given the evidence) the fact remains is that the scene of the terrorism was (once again) a no-gun zone. No-gun zones are not safe places for people when it comes to terrorism! The police can’t get to them in time and even when they do they are often outgunned and many do not even have security personnel or protective monitoring in place. No matter how much o’dumber pushes gun control it will not stop terrorism from the enemy we face. When it occurs in a workplace it is merely coincidence in 9/10 cases. What he really is saying to America is that is must ignore what we know to be truth while being subdued by islamism.

    If o’dumber, the pseudo excuse of a leader, the little rainbow golfer, the kisser of congressmen, occupier of the highest office in our country, were to succeed in passing his madness off and actually convincing Congress to somehow believe his double speak (not likely) and making the entire United States a no-gun zone, it would be a free-for-all extermination by islamist terrorists or criminals (who will have guns) and if the police can’t do the job the federal government will impose martial law. After that what would happen would be anybody’s guess but it probably wouldn’t be very good for your plans of early retirement. After all, martial law must be paid for with higher taxes and that means we will pay for it. That would be some transformational (nice name for socialism) change!

    O’dumber’s trust level is at an all-time low and he will be gone soon enough but there are many others like him infiltrated into our government and it will be hard to get rid of them. Most people that i have talked to believe o’dumber is a traitor or even some operative for islamist interests but that he is the tip of the iceberg. Those he has helped already in our government including islamists should be monitored closely and dealt with accordingly for any attempts at insurrection. Ignoring them could quite possibly lead to serious and even deadly consequences for our future. This country will survive but it needs a healthy dose of doing the right thing and it starts with speaking the truth and then getting rid of the liars!
