Islam Update: ISIS Fighters are Surrendering
So… are we supposed to believe that these jihadists are just going to return to their homelands and become “peaceful Muslims”???
Unless we do all we can to prevent them from leaving this theater…
…we should get ready for the next big wave of jihadist attacks…
ISIS Fighters Are Surrendering ‘En Masse’ In Iraq: The “soldiers of Allah” who promised to be martyrs aren’t being fed or paid
Hmmm… I wonder when the mainstream media will give Trump credit…
…for defeating the jihadists that Obama ignored…
…until they had taken over a territory the size of Britain? Dave

The Islamic State seems to have come to a particularly wretched end, with the New York Times reporting the surrender of thousands of ISIS fighters, not forgetting to note that it was a smelly ordeal, given that numerous fighters had either soiled themselves or used their desert bathrobes as toilet paper. Eeew. And according to the Times report, at least one of them went to the bathroom on himself without even bothering to wipe up.
Care to join this group, idiots?
It’s right that the Times reported those gross details, because it makes ISIS known for this. Rather than being the terror group of triumphant black flag processions in the eyes of Middle Eastern young men, they’re now the terror group of dirty dishdashas and smelly clumps and gross body odors – hardly a recruiting ad for joining this vile terror group. I hope the execrable details are plastered all over Twitter, too – ISIS in all its glory.
And aside from the press doing its part with the gamy details about the losers, the Trump administration should do its part, too. As ISIS stands humbled in its own filth with New York Times reporters reporting all about it, doing their best to learn from their brother reporters at the New York Post, U.S. troops and their allies stand tall. Freed from the lawyers and micromanaging of the bureaucrats of the White House, they got in there, blew the hell out of ISIS, left them crying in their diapers, and won the war, as they were so fully capable of doing…
John Guandolo Understanding the Threat October 6, 2017
Five days after the largest shooting attack in American history, U.S. leaders are no closer to identifying the motive of the perpetrator of this tragedy. Yet, our government assures us this is not connected to “international terrorism.”
With regards to the current situation as it stands right now, the facts as we know them are this;
- Last spring the Islamic State released a video targeting Las Vegas using a red smear effect to show “blood” over the city.
- In September, the Islamic State issued another threat against Las Vegas.
- Last week the Islamic state published a message in one of their media outlets admonishing Muslims to avoid large gatherings of non-Muslims, specifically including large events where thousands of people gather.
- Sunday night, October 1st in Las Vegas, Stephen Paddock fired on a crowd of approximately 22,000 people at a country music concert.
- On Monday October 2nd, the Islamic State claimed responsibly for this attack. Later that day they issued a second message confirming the Las Vegas attack was conducted by a “soldier of the caliphate” and “martyr.” Several hours later early Tuesday morning EST the Islamic state issued a third message reconfirming the Las Vegas attack was their operation.
- On Thursday October 5th, the Islamic State released a new video showing the red smear “blood” over the Mandalay Bay Hotel.
- There is no record of the Islamic state ever claiming responsibility of an operation that did not turn out to be a jihadi attack (Note: June attack in Philippines was claimed by the Islamic State. While government officials there call the event a “robbery,” credible analysis of the incident makes a strong case that was an IS operation). See the article this week in the Atlantic making the same case.
- The sheriff leading the investigation effort publicly stated it is his opinion Paddock was not operating alone.
- It has been confirmed that Paddock wired $100,000 to the Philippines before this operation.
- Paddock filmed himself during the attack.
- Paddock conducted pre-operational reconnaissance on the Las Vegas target (Mandalay) but other similar targets in other cities as well.
- Biographical information on Paddock indicates no prior military or law enforcement experience.
- Beside numerous weapons, explosives were found in Paddock’s vehicle and in one of his residences.
Here is what we can learn from these facts:
- Paddock’s conduct and behavior suggest he is capable in pre-mission planning, conducting reconnaissance, logistical planning, weapons handling, explosives handling, and executing a mission. Without law enforcement and/or military training, where was Paddock trained?…

Title Lock Corp. senior adviser Art Pfizenmayer on the FBI’s search for the Las Vegas shooter’s motives.
A Mandalay Bay hotel security guard who ran into Las Vegas gunman Stephen Paddock ahead of last Sunday’s massacre is being hailed a hero after he took the shooter’s first bullet, potentially saving lives ahead of the deadliest mass shooting in modern U.S. history.
Jesus Campos, a security guard at the Mandalay Bay Resort and Casino, was shot by Paddock six minutes before he began shooting into a crowd of 22,000 people enjoying the country music festival down below, Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department Sheriff Joe Lombardo said in a news conference Monday evening.
Campos was responding to an alarm going off in the hotel and ventured off to find the source, when he came across the sound of drilling.
The security guard told investigators that Paddock was drilling to an adjacent wall in the hallway — most likely to install a camera or to point a rifle — but never finished the job.
Lombardo said the alarm that went off was not connected to Paddock’s room.

At 9:59 p.m., Campos was shot in the leg after Paddock fired 200 shots into the hallway. Paddock began shooting into the crowd six minutes later, contradicting original reports that Campos’ arrival is what stopped Paddock’s mass shooting.
Between the time that Campos was shot and Paddock began shooting, Campos notified authorities of what happened, which Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department Undersheriff Kevin McMahill said Friday was “absolutely critical” as it gave police Paddock’s exact location…More…

Associated Press October 8, 2017
The U.S. said Sunday it was suspending non-immigrant visa services at its diplomatic facilities in Turkey following the arrest of a consulate employee, prompting Turkey to halt visa services in the U.S.
The U.S. Embassy in the capital of Ankara tweeted a statement from the U.S. Mission to Turkey saying that recent events have forced it to “reassess the commitment of the Government of Turkey to the security of U.S. Mission facilities and personnel.”
The Turkish Embassy in Washington responded with a similar statement on Twitter late Sunday and said it would “reassess the commitment of the Government of the United States to the security of Turkish mission facilities and personnel.” It said the measures would apply to e-Visas, visas issued at borders and visas in passports.
This week, Turkish authorities arrested a U.S. Consulate employee of Turkish nationality for alleged links to the network of U.S.-based cleric Fethullah Gulen, who the Turkish government blames for last summer’s failed coup. Gulen denies involvement.
Metin Topuz is accused of espionage and “attempting to overthrow the Turkish government and constitution.” Turkey’s official Anadolu news agency reported that he allegedly communicated with former police chiefs in a 2013 corruption probe, 121 people involved in the attempted coup and hundreds of people using an encrypted mobile messaging application. The U.S. Embassy said it was “deeply disturbed” by the arrest…More…

The Senate can’t seem to repeal ObamaCare. Or get much of anything done. But it found time for important matters like this… as Judith Bergman at Gatestone reveals.
On April 4, 2017, the US Senate passed Senate Resolution 118, “Condemning hate crime and any other form of racism, religious or ethnic bias, discrimination, incitement to violence, or animus targeting a minority in the United States”. The resolution was drafted by a Muslim organization, EmgageUSA (formerly EmergeUSA) and the Muslim Public Affairs Council (MPAC).
The resolution includes the claim that… “Whereas, in 2015, hate crimes targeting Muslims in the United States increased by 67 percent, reaching a level of violence targeting Muslim Americans that the United States had not experienced since the aftermath of the September 11, 2001, attacks, according to the Federal Bureau of Investigation;”
There’s also boilerplate language about anti-Semitism and hate crimes in general.
Kamala Harris, Feinstein, Susan Collins and Rubio introduced it. And the Islamists credited them: “Thanks to the hard work of Senator Marco Rubio, Senator Dianne Feinstein, Senator Susan Collins and Senator Kamala Harris we have achieved the approval of Senate Resolution 118, an anti-hate crimes bill drafted by Emerge-USA.”
Emerge USA is exactly what you would expect from Islamists.
Over the years, EMERGE has held a number of events at terror-linked mosques, like: (a) Masjid Al-Qassam (a.k.a. Islamic Community of Tampa), which was founded by Palestinian Islamic Jihad leader Sami al-Arian, and (b) Masjid Darul Uloom (based in Pembroke Pines, Florida), where “Dirty Bomber” Jose Padilla was a student and the late al-Qaeda Global Operations Chief Adnan el-Shukrijumah was a prayer leader. EMERGE has also sponsored speeches made by various Muslim extremists, such as Sayed Ammar Nakshawani, who has called for the destruction of Israel.
EMERGE’s executive director, Nauman Sabit Abbasi, is the president of public relations for the Islamic Foundation of South Florida (IFSF), a radical mosque that seeks to “establish a powerful base for the growth of Islam in North America,” and whose youth leader once wrote on the Internet: “[Y]es, Allah … has Decreed that we will over-take the World in numbers…” Abbasi’s Facebook page urged to people to “support the true leadership of the world who are at war with Zoinists.”
So why introduce the resolution and what is the agenda? Judith Bergman asks: ‘Why would the House of Representatives find it necessary to make such redundant statements, if not in order to redefine the concept of a hate crime? Perhaps by including “hate speech”?’
And she notes that… ‘On May 6, EmgageUSA published the following on its Facebook page: “Representative Barbara Comstock, second term Republican from Virginia’s 10thDistrict is teaming up with EmergeUSA and MPAC to successfully pass a House Resolution which condemns ethnic, religious and racial hate crimes.”’
The Senate unanimously passed its version. And this shows once again that Islamist groups are still managing to get their claws into Republicans… More…

This week’s Indivisible to-dos
To help us understand the enemies we are up against…
…it was suggested during an ACT Chapter Leaders’ Conference Call that we learn more about the Indivisible Movement…

As you can tell from their long list of to-do’s and their website…
…they are highly organized and highly financed…
They are furious at Trump – and us – and they are out for blood… Dave
Your weekly Indivisible to-dos:
Trump’s Tax Scam is here. Republicans are gearing up to attempt to ram tax cuts for millionaires and corporations through Congress on the backs of the middle class and low-income workers. Well, we’re ready to fight it and we’ve built out TrumpTaxScam.org with resources, call scripts, and town hall questions to help you prepare for next week’s recess.
BONUS: Tonight on Facebook Live, we’ll discuss Tax Policy 101, the Republicans’ latest moves, and answer your questions at 8:30pm ET/5:30pm PT. Like us on Facebook now and you’ll get notified when we go live!
Thursday night at 8pm ET/5pm PT: join our webinar to learn how to fight systemic oppression and white supremacy. We’ll be joined by an anti-oppression trainer, Chris Crass, to discuss important tools to fight white supremacy in our communities. RSVP here for the webinar.
Put pressure on your Members of Congress to demand an emergency relief package for Puerto Rico and the US Virgin Islands. Our government is failing the people of Puerto Rico and the US. Virgin Islands. Visit our website, read our explainer, and put pressure on your MoC to provide an emergency relief package and permanently rescind the Jones Act.
Demand a clean DREAM Act. This Thursday, October 5th, marks an important deadline for DREAMers who’ve received deferred deportation: it’s the last day to re-apply. Thursday, and every day, we’ll stand shoulder to shoulder with immigrants to #DefendDACA and demand a clean DREAM Act. Visit standup.indivisible.org to take action to support DREAMers now.
Trump is a foreign policy disaster.Escalating tensions with North Korea and Iran. Slashing the number of refugees allowed in the United States. Expanding the Muslim ban. These bigoted, dangerous policies make us much less safe as a nation. Read more on the Indivisiblog and learn how to put pressure on your Member of Congress to stop Trump’s warmongering.
When we wrote our email to you last week, we were admittedly a bit nervous about TrumpCare. John McCain had said he was a “no” vote and Susan Collins was leaning no as well. We recorded a Facebook Live that night with Senator Warren and we were still gearing up for a big fight. Then everything changed.
Everything changed because of you and how boldly, bravely, and creatively you exercised of your constituent power. We won. We defeated TrumpCare.
From die-ins to phone banks to good ol’ rallies, thousands from the Indivisible movement showed up for events for our National Day of Action to #KillTheBill (check out amazing photos from actions across the country on our YouTube channel)…
Since the beginning of this fight, Indivisibles held more than 400 actions in your communities, 360,000 people used our TrumpCareTen resources to put pressure on their Senators, and you made more than 420,000 calls to constituents in red states to put pressure on key Senate targets. You made so much noise (how much?) that several Republicans have even announced their retirements including Rep. Jimmy Duncan (TN), Rep. Dave Reichert (WA), and Rep. Dave Trott (MI) — shout out to Indivisible East Tennessee, Indivisible W-08, and Indivisible MI11, respectively. And in a Friday night news dump, it was announced that Tom Price, Secretary of Health and Human Services, resigned after several failed attempts to repeal healthcare.
This is a movement that shows up every. single. time. This is a movement that is creative, compassionate, funny, and powerful. This is a movement that doesn’t back down. This is a movement that grows stronger each and every day. This is a movement that has done the impossible time and time again.
Now, we’re gearing up for the next big fight: Trump’s Tax Scam. After nine months of fighting TrumpCare, we can finally say that we’ve killed the bill. To be sure, Republicans may keep trying to resurrect the bill, so we have to remain vigilant. But you stopped Trump’s number one policy priority this year. That’s a huge, huge deal. And we can do it again.
Fight systemic oppression and white supremacy
You asked for it and we listened — Indivisibles want more trainings, opportunities to share best practices in organizing, and to discuss topics that will contextualize our work in the broader movement space.
For our first event in a new series of webinars and trainings, we’ll dive into a conversation about systemic oppression, white supremacy, and how these forces show up in our lives and our organizing with anti-racism trainer Chris Crass. There will be room for questions and discussion at the end.
When: Thursday, October 5th at 8pm ET/5pm PT
What: Webinar on fighting systemic oppression and white supremacy
Who: Indivisibles from across the country and anti-racism trainer Chris Crass
This week on Capitol Hill
Now, the Tax fight is on. Republicans are already gearing up for the next big fight: Trump’s Tax Plan (or as we like to call it on our new website, the Trump Tax Scam). Last week, the White House unveiled a six-page draft of a tax scam framework, building off their whopping one-page memo from this spring. Republicans are, once again, trying to ram this bill through using the budget reconciliation process just like they did with TrumpCare. Here’s what you need to know:
The first step is the budget resolution. The House will vote on its budget resolution on Thursday and the Senate will mark up its resolutionWednesday and Thursday. Here’s the bottom line: these budgets cut critical services and would force deep cuts to Medicaid, Medicare, and Social Security down the road. All to give massive tax cuts to the rich and corporations.
Congress must pass an emergency relief package for Puerto Rico and the US Virgin Islands. It is unconscionable that our government has failed to give the people of Puerto Rico and the US Virgin Islands (US citizens!) the same attention as it did the victims of Hurricanes Harvey and Irma. Read our explainer and ask your Member of Congress to provide an emergency relief package for the victims of Hurricane Maria and topermanently rescind the Jones Act, an antiquated law that has made it difficult for supplies to reach the Island of Puerto Rico.
