ISIS Supporters Feeling Left Out – Vow New Attacks on America and Russia

 

Well, it looks like ISIS is feeling left out with all of the recent talk of hurricanes, Russian Hacking, fake news, North Korea, the Iran Nuclear deal and Trump’s ill advised, ridiculous tweets and open attacks on the US media.

 

ISIS-CrimeShop

 

Rather than easing themselves back into the game of war and talk of destruction and attacks, they just went for the gold and threatened to assassinate both Trump and Putin.

 

ISIS-Trump-Putin-CrimeShop

 

In the newly released propaganda image they decided to show off bullet ridden photos of Donald Trump and Vladimir Putin, then took it a step over the top and invited its followers to stage more attacks on the United States, Trump, Russia and Putin.

“Lie in wait for them at every chance to ambush.”

 

Obama-CrimeShop

 

Here’s the kicker, ISIS was using Obama’s image until a few months back, they didn’t even bother to acknowledge Trump as the President of the United States until just recently.

I’m guessing ISIS most likely thought Trump becoming President of the United States was just more bad American TV and far from actual reality.

And to be fair, it is an easy mistake to make here, has anyone sat down and read a lot of Trump’s tweets, seen the guy on TV, at News Conference, speaking?!?!?!?

It took time to actually sink in so it took them time to believe the gravity of the situation here.

ISIS has also just recently claimed to have been behind the shooting in Las Vegas. Last week ISIS claimed that Steven Paddock converted to Islam roughly 6 months ago, a claim federal agents are having a hard time finding any evidence of.

The reality is that ISIS has been losing ground for a while here and it looks like they want back into the game but they are having a hard time actually getting themselves back into the game full force if you will.

Unlike threats coming from North Korea, ISIS is not as easy to just take care of. They are the perfect example of cutting the head of the snake and watching the body keep going.

Clearly, ISIS is not bright enough to have figured out that they really do not want to dance with Trump here.

Maybe they do not have TV, they can’t get on social media, they don’t read or watch news from anywhere in the world.

If they did,  they would have seen that Trump is a little on the crazy side. And by a little, I really mean a lot.  

America has enough problems with just Trump alone, he not the guy to threaten because Trump is not afraid to take to Twitter and start name calling, insulting ISIS and making threats towards ISIS.

On the other hand, American intelligence should be paying close attention to the latest threat coming out of ISIS and any of it’s supporters.

ISIS very well could be smart enough to have figured out the lack of support Trump has from American’s at this juncture.

It looks a lot like they are attempting to build an army from the inside by capitalizing on individuals who loath Trump and who are disturbed enough to take action.

Suicide Bombers/Terror Attacks – Social Media

Manchester - bombing-crimeshop

Manchester, England – Facebook/Twitter/Instagram

In the wake of the latest terror attack on Monday in Manchester, 22 individuals were ruthlessly murdered including an 8 year old child, several people around the world started to finally discuss what to do about these types of attacks in terms of social media and throughout mainstream media in terms of the over sensationalizing the attack.

I know that I have said this before but when we take to over sensationalizing such attacks, by default we simply give those behind them some of what they want.

Attention.

The kind of attention that is not good. Start bringing forth more attacks and you begin to not only gain the attention you sought but you also begin to instill a deep seeded fear.

Fear

That fear in turn stops people from attending things like concerts, sporting events, or simply just going out to a heavily populated area.

Control

That in turn gives those behind such attacks the upper hand, meaning that they are beginning to gain some control over us, as in the rest of the population.

Support

Lastly, terrorists also gain more support when we over sensationalize these attacks by gaining followers to the cause .

The point is, while I completely understand the rush or the feeling of the need to start broadcasting the attack while it unfolds, it’s not the safest or smartest way to deter future attacks.

That goes for the media as well not just users of social media.

But then again, users of social media have taken the idea of just running with it, carelessly and haphazardly posting images and video, directly from the media.

Much like children, we have learned by what we have seen and have been taught by the media.

Not that anything we do can or will deter them currently, the less over sensationalized and dramatic our response to such attacks is, the less likely terrorists will feel the need to cause another attack.

Eventually like with a child throwing a tantrum, they will give up and attempt to find other ways to get what they want.

Which will start new more creative problems for the world but might help us accomplish one thing.

Save lives.

ISIS is planning attack on US air bases in Saudi Arabia, Kuwait and Bahrain

israel

That’s according to an Israeli cyber-intelligence group who have reported to media sources that they have breached Telegram group on the dark web, which is run by jihadists.

It is rumored that the Islamic state uses Telegram to organize operatives and to disseminate terror attack plans among 500 of its leading activists.

According to the Israeli company who breached Telegram, the Islamic State uses the site to upload potential targets to the group. They reported that in recent months some of the targets have been hit by individuals claiming allegiance to the terror organization.

One of the targets found during the hack was the recently attacked church in Normandy, France where Father Jacques Hamel was murdered by the terrorist group. The Israeli cyber-intelligence group says that the attack on the church was planned months ago according to communication found on Telegram.

This brings us to cyber-intelligence/cyber-security, you can’t have one without the other and quite frankly, the US is falling way below the bar on both fronts.

Both Israel and Russia are reported to be two very powerful forces in terms of cyber-intelligence, cyber defense and cyber-security. China, North Korea, Iran all rank higher than the US.

In fact, Iran is considered a dangerous cyber threat to the US.

ISIS is using the dark web to communicate with its followers. ISIS is not the only extremist group using the dark web for communications either.

Our country would be best served if our Government would better align themselves with countries who are more capable at cyber-intelligence and security and the cyber-security firms in those said countries. We are all better served if we could learn to work together with these other countries and firms to fight the war on terror and to thwart cyber related crimes in general.

Think about it, other countries have surpassed the US when it comes to both cyber-intelligence and cyber-security for years and we don’t seem to be moving at all. These other countries have also set up cyber defense and the programs they have are not for the faint of heart.

Today Business Insider ran a story with a headline stating “The terrible recovery from the Great Recession is due to Congress’ economic incompetence.” I bring that to your attention because it is in fact true, Congress is out of touch with the realities of our world on all fronts, that includes cyber security, intelligence and defense. 

The media is partly to blame here as well, I mean if the FBI asks for a change to a law the media  makes it out to be the NSA is spying on all of us all the time…

Recently the FBI did ask for a change to the a law that pertains to being able to access someone’s browsing history and other electronic data for certain types of suspected crimes.

Of course the media had a field day with it, they lead everyone to believe the FBI was going to be able to access browsing history from anyone and everyone, all history, see the sites you visit, the pages on those sites and who knows what else…turned out that was not even close to what the FBI could actually access if they had been granted the change and the request was denied, rightfully so.

The reality was, the intel they could have obtained from this change was so rudimentary it amounted to basically the FBI obtaining no useful intel at all. The intel the FBI would have gotten was so rudimentary it would have been a waste of time.

The fact is, between all of us throwing fits over our “rights” which we completely take for granted and confuse with privilege, the media blowing things out of proportion and congress’ incompetence when it comes to cyber-intelligence and security, it is no surprise that we aren’t even close to the bar in terms of cyber defense.

Then we have encryption, I am not against it and I am also not for it when a crime has occurred. I believe that ways around it are needed when you are dealing with an ongoing investigation. I also believe that if our government has ways around it, which I agree at times they should, we need oversight so that, that power it is not abused.  

We want our government to protect us and be able to defend us from cyber attacks of all levels and kinds,  and we want them to be able to thwart terrorist attacks, yet we are the first to accuse them of taking away our rights and freedoms if they come up some new tool to us to obtain data intel which is part of cyber security.

We refuse to meet in the middle and we refuse to better align ourselves with other countries who are far more superior to our own with cyber defense and capabilities.

A lot can be said for the argument that some things a government does should be kept secret from it’s citizens because sometimes the citizens of that country are simply not ready to know or come to terms with the truth.

Our government needs to be able to learn and utilize tools as much as they can without the media or us citizens assuming they are spying on us. They also need to learn to work with countries that are superior to us in terms of cyber defense long before we can begin to protect this nation from cyber attacks.

We need to give them permission to learn it and use it. They can’t learn it if they aren’t using it, and they are not using it because we prevent them from learning it.

It’s almost as if we truly do enjoy being reactive, we love to walk on the edge and expect someone to catch us when we fall.

We as a country need to come to grips with the reality that cyber crime is on the rise and will continue to rise. It will become more scary and dangerous and once the ability to hack falls into the hands of these extremist groups, it will forever change the playing field. 

Until our nation becomes better at cyber defense, security and intelligence, my money is on the other guys finding out about a planned attack long before we do.

Another mass shooting here in America

Is this the world we live in now?

orlando-massacre

My heart sinks just a little more each and every time I see another mass shooting in this country. For me this one is personal.

The LGBT community is very tight nit, they are all family and for some of them, that is the only family that they have. It’s not easy to be an outsider, as in a straight woman who is brought into the community with such open arms because many of these individuals have been so hurt and shunned by the straight community that it is sometimes difficult for them to trust us.

Some of my best friends whom I consider family are part of this very community, they have been here for me through some really rough times. They have lent support, shoulders to cry on, words of wisdom, some great shopping trips, sometimes just someone to sit with when no words come to mind as I faced the pain that I was going through, and someone to make me laugh hysterically and forget the pain. (that last one is for Carlos in Denver, he is and always will be a brother to me).

Right now, this community is hurting and they need our support in the right ways.

“Enough is enough!” I keep hearing that from my fellow American’s and while I couldn’t agree more I am always left wondering if they are referring to the endless hours our media has spent covering the story and the killer or the shootings themselves.

I have to say that I am personally, absolutely, hands down, disgusted with the media here in the US. I have heard and read so many headlines that are misleading, speculative, flat out lies reported as truth, half truths, the words “we are going to break it down for you and get into the head of this mass killer,”  and my now new personal favorite “gay night club,” as if that was the killer’s motive, an attack on gays?

The FBI said it would investigate whether or not this killer was conflicted about his own sexuality, given he had a LGBT dating app on his phone and was known to be at Pulse often enough to be remembered. This left the media to speculate that this was an attack on the gay community over that. But no one really knows that to be a fact as of today.

He also claimed loyalty to ISIS during the attack.

It’s really quite simple, this lunatic killer believed in a cause and wanted to be heard. In order to gain the desired attention that he needed toward his cause, he elected to go on a shooting rampage, in the process exposing a weakness, a weakness which allowed for him to go on said shooting rampage in the first place.

This is what mass killers do. They expose the weakness through the crimes that they commit while at the same time getting the audience they wanted so that they can be heard for the cause they are so willing to both kill and die for.  

It is nothing more or less than that at this very moment in time To him, it was logical, to the rest of us it is not. The point being, his motive is not for the world to understand because most of us would consider his belief wrong, therefore we lack the wherewithal to understand the why in the first place.

Again, we don’t truly know why, yet.

The cause could have been that he was radicalized, he was conflicted about his sexuality or that gay men are better dressers than straight men, the point is, we simply do not know and that is because the investigation is still “on-going.” Something the media tends to forget when it reports on open investigations that are HOT not COLD.

For the 49 murdered human beings, the best way to honor and remember them is to report the truth not speculation, not try to interview every traumatized loved one or witness to the crime and most importantly to stop covering these shootings every single minute of the news hour.

By giving these types of shootings so much attention, it instills the very idea of another situation like this in someone else’s head. It says “if I want to be heard, I need to hurt people and die in the process.” These types of killers relish in the very idea that they are going to go down in history for whatever the reason might be that they choose to kill.

Every mass shooter/bomber has had some sort of cause that he believed in and when you study those individuals, you start to see the pattern. They got the idea because it gets them the attention they want and they know that it garners them this attention because of the US media outlets.

It’s always, go big or go home. The more individuals they kill, the longer the story will be on the news, the better chance it is on the news all day, all night, on social media, etc.

In fact, right this very moment another potential mass shooter is already planning because he wants his rampage to be even bigger than this one.

At the end of the day, whatever the cause or reason that the killer had, the media needs to chill the F*&k out! Report on the victims but leave the damn shooter’s motives, reasons, job, ex wife, and name out of it.

The FBI released a few details  yesterday, yet immediately after the shooting the media was reporting that this shooter was a possible terrorist or possibly had terrorist ties.

Really???

The FBI and local authorities had not yet released any of those details to the media the day of the shooting, in fact, the FBI did not confirm anything until roughly 16 hours ago as I type this.

The media has taken so many leaps and bounds here that the public is up and arms, confused and focused on issues that are not of any importance at the moment.

I completely understand that everyone wants answers, the truth is, the media is in absolutely no position to provide those answers without the facts in hand. It is unethical, immoral and wrong.

Right now, the focus should be on helping the surviving victims and the families cope and move forward, not focus on this guy’s motives or what the media thinks they were. Stop focusing on his ex wife, or speculating that the FBI looked at him, mention that he purchased guns legally…

The media seems to be confused as to who is actually responsible for investigating mass shootings.

The media is not responsible for telling us who this man was or why he did what he did until they have the facts provided to them by authorities unless the media can prove that the authorities were wrong or lied it’s not the job of the media to investigate the crime or the criminal.

Trust me, the FBI does not need the help from the media on this one, I am pretty sure they’ve got this.

The media’s job is also not to subtly point fingers either, i.e. the guy purchased his guns legally, the FBI looked at him a few years ago, the club had no security etc.

That serves no purpose in any way shape or form, it’s only intent is to start a public outcry and debate and to create issues and problems.  

The media’s job is to report the facts, in a fair unbiased way. IF you have no facts to report, then again, focus the reporting on supporting the victims, the families and friends of the victims.

A minute by minute on the killer is the last thing anyone needs. We don’t need to know him right now, he is dead, let the authorities handle his side of the story for the time being.

On the evening of 13 November 2015, a series of coordinated terrorist attacks commenced in Paris, France—They consisted of mass shootings, suicide bombings, and hostage-taking.

The death toll currently as of right this very moment sits at 129, 340 injured many of them critically injured.

Why and who were the savages that so ruthlessly, senselessly and without cause took the lives of innocent individuals? ISIS took responsibility, boasted that it had members gain entry into France by posing as Syrian Refugees.  

As of today 27 US state Governors have stated they will not take refugees in which by the way is really quite absurd. States don’t really get a choice as to whether or not they take in refugees.

President Obama has explicit statutory authorization to accept foreign refugees into the United States. Under the Refugee Act of 1980,

The president may admit refugees who face “persecution or a well-founded fear of persecution on account of race, religion, nationality, membership in a particular social group, or political opinion” into the United States, and the president’s power to do so is particularly robust if they determine that an “unforeseen emergency refugee situation” such as the Syrian refugee crisis exists.

To further drive that point home and to remind everyone, that in Arizona v. the United States, Arizona lost. Not to mention, the US stands to lose a lot by refusing asylum to refugees of war torn nations. States also have much to lose by refusing refugees in terms of Federal funding. Try to tax your citizens more to offset the loss of Federal funds and let’s see where that gets everyone. Needless to say, the Refugee Act of 1980  has given President Obama broad discretion to allow refugees to be admitted into the United States. States must yield to that act.

Islamic-State-IP

It’s pretty common knowledge that the terror organisation known as the Islamic State has killed far more Muslims than Christians, Westerners, or minorities during its existence.

ap443219146492-47c8a25e2837c29b1853987bb414c1ccfa00e555-s900-c85That’s your History Lesson, numbers aside:

What about our home grown terrorists? Or mass shooters who are basically home grown terrorists of a different breed from the likes of ISIS?

Who thinks we don’t already have terrorists hiding out in this country waiting to kill again? We would be kidding ourselves if we thought we are safe.

By refusing a refugee access to safety because of ISIS we condemn an entire group of people to either die or join a cause they don’t believe in just so that they can live…what kind of sense does that make?

What’s more, we continue to bomb the shit out of ISIS which is great right? Yet by shutting our borders and doors to refugees where do you think ISIS is going to turn in order to get new recruits to man it’s needed growing army?  

We already know that ISIS preys on the disadvantaged, the poor, the desperate, the shunned by society and now the world.  If it were me in charge of an army and I wanted to dominate, I would have snuck some of my guys in as refugees, knowing that it would upset the delicate balance of taking in refugees.

It serves multiple purposes, they kill and get attention again because of the scale of coordinated effort involved in the mass attacks and countries will stop letting some of the refugees in long enough for someone to come in and recruit the refugees.

If you are looking carefully at terrorist organizations they test the fence, find a weakness and then prey on it, exploit it, and take full advantage of our response to the damage they caused.

The world’s weakness is taking in refugees from war torn countries. We can’t stand to see them suffer and consider it inhumane to not offer a safe home. ISIS saw a weakness and took advantage of it and because of that people are going to shun refugees which will allow terrorist groups to exploit those refugees and brainwash them into joining the terrorist cause.

So what’s the answer?

Before anyone says that we should close our borders and not allow any immigrants in, please allow for me to take this moment to kindly and with as much grace as I can muster, ask that you  STFU! Our ancestors stole, yes murdered in fact quite a few Native American’s so that they could steal this country from it’s rightful caretakers the Native American’s. We didn’t need it, we just desired it and killed innocent people so as to take it from them.

We then subsequently instead of becoming the caretakers, have managed to rape and violate in every possible way the land on which we all now comfortably reside upon within the US.  

We could all throw up our hands and walk away from the situation, leave refugees where they are, leave war torn nations to fight it or figure it out themselves. Nato could invoke Article 5, or nations could resume allowing refugees in but with strict and stringent rules and guidelines such as ankle monitoring, check in’s, etc.

What we should not do is turn our backs on those in need because of a group of terrorists who simply exposed a weakness in the system. We can simply find a safe and realistic solution for allowing refugees in without imprisoning them. It’s not right to condemn them to death because of ISIS.
