FBI Arrests Alleged Would-Be Neo-Nazi Terrorist Before He Can Commit Mass Murder at a Las Vegas Synagogue

The U.S. Attorney’s Office released a statement Friday revealing details of a Las Vegas security guard’s arrest.

The 23-year-old’s been “charged by a criminal complaint with one count of possession of an unregistered firearm – namely, the component parts of a destructive device.”

That’d be…like one of these:

As per the 11-page criminal complaint lodged against him, the man was allegedly engaged in encrypted communication with those identifying with the National Socialist Movement in order to attack a synagogue in the desert town. Additionally, he may have been surveilling an LGBTQ-friendly bar for nefarious reasons.

What’s the NSM all about? According to the District of Nevada Attorney’s Office, it’s this:

Members believe in the superiority of the white race and have a common goal of challenging the established laws, social order, and government via terrorism and other violent acts.

Tampa Bay’s ABC Action News reports that the Las Vegas Joint Terrorism Task Force began investigating the man in April, after it was learned he was messaging with neo-Nazi organization Atomwaffen Division.

The guy’s got uncanny taste in friends.

During a search, officials discovered “a notebook with several hand-drawn schematics for a potential Las Vegas-area attack.” Also drawn: “timed explosive devises.”

Yeah — this guy could use an intervention.

It just keeps getting worse — in his bedroom, law enforcement found bomb parts and explosive-friendly chemicals. Bonus: an “AR-15-style rifle and a bolt-action rifle.”

Definitely intervention material.

The guns were impounded.

Here’s what FBI Las Vegas Division Special Agent in Charge Aaron Rouse had to say about all this:

“The FBI’s Las Vegas Joint Terrorism Task Force is committed to protecting our community from any threat of domestic terrorism and I could not be more proud of the work they did in this case. … As this complaint illustrates, the FBI will always be proactive to combat threats that cross a line from free speech to potential violence.”

Assuming the charges are accurate, thank God agencies intercepted the man and his efforts. We could’ve been soon reading about the death and destruction he caused. Instead, we’re finding out he faces up to a decade in prison.

Law enforcement took care of business.

Surely right now, there are other would-be terrorists. As George W. Bush directed after 9/11, we must stay vigilant. Observe and report. For most every evil deed, I believe, there were signs not taken seriously enough to prevent it.

But the citizens of Las Vegas can sleep a little bit more soundly tonight, knowing an armed and dangerous aspiring assassin is behind bars.

Now are you ready to see the guy? He already made the headlines, back in 2016. Ladies and Gentlemen, meet Conor Climo, your trusty neighborhood watchman:

Former MCC Inmate: ‘There’s No Way That Man [Epstein] Could Have Killed Himself’

Westlake Legal Group jeffrey-epstein-mugshot-620x317 Former MCC Inmate: ‘There’s No Way That Man [Epstein] Could Have Killed Himself’ Jeffrey Epstein Front Page Stories Featured Story crime corruption Brad Hamilton and Bruce Golding Allow Media Exception

FILE – This July 27, 2006 arrest file photo made available by the Palm Beach, Fla., Sheriff’s Office shows Jeffrey Epstein. Epstein, a wealthy financier and convicted sex offender, has been arrested in New York on sex trafficking charges. Two law enforcement officials said Epstein was taken into federal custody Saturday, July 6, 2019, on charges involving sex-trafficking allegations that date to the 2000s. (AP Photo/Palm Beach Sheriff’s Office, File)

A former inmate who had been incarcerated for several months in the same part of the Metropolitan Correctional Center as Jeffrey Epstein spoke to New York Post reporters Brad Hamilton and Bruce Golding on Saturday. This area, called the 9 South special housing unit, was reserved for “high-profile prisoners awaiting trial.”

To be sure, we will hear more than a few conspiracy theories surrounding Epstein’s death in the coming weeks, but I thought I would share this man’s story because he had once been an “insider.”

This man, who spoke on the condition of anonymity, does not believe Epstein killed himself. And, in his own words, he explains his reasons below:

 

“There’s no way that man could have killed himself. I’ve done too much time in those units. It’s an impossibility.

Between the floor and the ceiling is like eight or nine feet. There’s no way for you to connect to anything.

You have sheets, but they’re paper level, not strong enough. He was 200 pounds — it would never happen.

When you’re on suicide watch (see note below), they put you in this white smock, a straight jacket. They know a person cannot be injurious to themselves.

The clothing they give you is a jump-in uniform. Everything is a dark brown color.

Could he have done it from the bed? No sir. There’s a steel frame, but you can’t move it. There’s no light fixture. There’s no bars.

They don’t give you enough in there that could successfully create an instrument of death. You want to write a letter, they give you rubber pens and maybe once a week a piece of paper.

Nothing hard or made of metal.

And there’s a cop at the door about every nine minutes, whether you’re on suicide watch or not.

There’s up to 80 people there. They could put two in cell. It’s one or two, but I’ll never believe this guy had a cellmate. He was too blown up.

The damage that unit can do to someone.

It’s like you’re an animal and you’ve been brought into a kennel. A guy like Jeffrey, it’s like, “Holy sh-t.”

I told my parents not to come there. God wasn’t in the building.

I’ve had some heavy incidents in the building. What happened is permanent.

Some of the guards are on a major power trip. They know guys there are suffering. They know something the rest of the world hasn’t seen, that a place like this exists in this country, and they get off on it.

If the guards see that the guy is breaking, they’re going to help you break.

But it’s my firm belief that Jeffrey Epstein did not commit suicide. It just didn’t happen.”

 

Note: NBC, The New York Post and other media outlets confirmed Epstein had been removed from suicide watch at the end of July.

Liz Warren Tries to Save People by Keeping Them from Defending Themselves: Her Gun Control Plan is a Doozy

Westlake Legal Group suit-673697_1280-620x413 Liz Warren Tries to Save People by Keeping Them from Defending Themselves: Her Gun Control Plan is a Doozy Uncategorized Front Page Stories Featured Story

 

 

First of all, if you missed it, I hope you’ll check out “Louisiana Woman Accused Of Theft Tells Cops She Has No Idea How The Meth & Money Got There – In Her Vagina.”

Continuing:

What’s the proper response to bad people shooting good people? To some Democrats, it’s to blame the President of the United States for the gunmen’s evil choices — even if they voted Democrat — and try to make sure good people will be less likely to be armed the next go ’round.

Genius.

Senator Elizabeth Warren was braniacin’ like it was goin’ outta style Saturday, as she introduced her “plan for gun violence prevention.”

Her proposal was published by Medium, and it’s comprised by more than 30 points related to gun control.

Here are a few:

  • A new “federal assault weapons ban” that people willing to break the law prohibiting mass murder won’t obey
  • An increased tax on firearms (30%) and bullets (50%) that will in no way deter mass murderers from trying to kill innocent people but will make innocent people give the government more money in order to defend themselves against the undeterred murderers — so the government can then waste that money on more dumb things.
  • A ban on “high-capacity ammunition magazines” that will in no way convince mass murderers not to buy their ammo illegally but will keep the good people from being able to fight high-capacity fire with high-capacity fire
  • Extended waiting periods for firearms that will have no bearing on illegal purchases mass murderers are more than happy to make

Okay, so that isn’t word-for-word the way she phrased it. But I’m trying to provide some context. Some points of the plan may even be a good idea: A waiting period could, I think, play into a would-be criminal rethinking their plan to hurt people. It could also, of course, prevent someone from fighting back in stalking or domestic violence situations.

As for “high-capacity,” the plan stipulates Congress will interpret that phrase according to what it deems “reasonable limits on the lethality” of weapons. What in the world does that mean? Every gun is “lethal” if it hits someone in the right/wrong place.

Here’s a particularly interesting part of Elizabeth’s program: “Gun manufacturers” may be held “strictly liable” for crimes committed with their products.

That’s significant. Presently, you can purposely run your Tesla into a wall without Elon Musk having to pay for the repair. But the bloodline-appropriating senator from Massachusetts thinks firearms should be different (here, here, and here):

Gun manufacturers make billions in profit by knowingly selling deadly products. Then they are let completely off the hook when people take those deadly products and inflict harm on thousands of victims each year. State tort law already recognizes that certain types of products and activities are so abnormally dangerous that the entities responsible for them should be held strictly liable when people are injured. Congress should codify that same principle at the federal level for guns by creating a new private right of action allowing survivors of gun violence to hold the manufacturer of the weapon that harmed them strictly liable for compensatory damages to the victim or their family.

Also on the docket: universal background checks; a raised limit on gun purchases; a ban on the sale of accessories, including suppressors; a limit to the per-month purchase of firearms; the designation of colleges as “gun free zones,” the creation of a “federal licensing system,” and an investigation into the NRA.

Here’s a question: Pick any given mass shooting; in what way would any of the above have kept the killer from ultimately carrying out their plan to murder innocent people?

Food for thought.

Report: Trump Tells Advisers Israel Should Bar Entry to Reps. Omar and Tlaib

Westlake Legal Group omar-tlaib1-620x317 Report: Trump Tells Advisers Israel Should Bar Entry to Reps. Omar and Tlaib Ron Dermer rashida tlaib President Trump Ilhan Omar Front Page Stories Foreign Policy Featured Story donald trump democrats Culture Congress Benjamin Netanyahu BDS movement anti-semitism Allow Media Exception

Rep. Ilhan Omar, D-Minn., left, joined at right by Rep. Rashida Tlaib, D-Mich., listens to President Donald Trump’s State of the Union speech, at the Capitol in Washington, Tuesday, Feb. 5, 2019. (AP Photo/J. Scott Applewhite)

 

Citing “three sources familiar with the situation,” Axios’ Jonathan Swan reports that President Trump told his advisers Israel should use their anti-boycott law to deny entry to Reps. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) and Rashida Tlaib (D-MI). Their trip is currently scheduled for August 18th.

White House press secretary Stephanie Grisham told Swan that Trump denies ever giving any kind of directive to the Israelis. She said, “The Israeli government can do what they want. It’s fake news.”

In other words, Trump didn’t issue an order or even a request that Netanyahu block them from entering Israel. He just offered his opinion to members of his staff. I completely agree with him. Both women have well-documented histories of making anti-Semitic remarks and they are likely the two most anti-Semitic members of Congress.

In March 2017, the Israeli parliament passed an amendment to their anti-boycott law which requires the interior minister to bar entry to Israel to foreign nationals who “knowingly issued a public call to boycott the state of Israel, pledged to participate in said boycott, or act on behalf of a group or an organization that have done so.”

Omar and Tlaib meet all three criteria. Recently, they co-sponsored a resolution in the House to support the anti-Israel Boycott, Divestment, and Sanctions (BDS) movement. Last month, they were two of 17 lawmakers to vote against a House resolution to condemn BDS. During the preliminary debate, Tlaib compared the BDS movement to the American boycott of Nazi Germany.

We all remember Omar’s reference to the pro-Israel group AIPAC in February. She tweeted, “It’s all about the Benjamins, baby!”

After she was widely condemned by House leadership, she tweeted:

Anti-Semitism is real and I am grateful for Jewish allies and colleagues who are educating me on the painful history of anti-Semitic tropes.

My intention is never to offend my constituents or Jewish Americans as a whole. We have to always be willing to step back and think through criticism, just as I expect people to hear me when others attack me for my identity. This is why I unequivocally apologize…”

In a recent interview with CNN’s Jake Tapper, Tlaib was asked twice if she believes that Israel has the right to exist. Finally, she responded, “I truly believe the state of Israel is – it exists, correct. But understand, does it exist in the detriment of inequality for the Palestinian people?”

Regarding their upcoming trip, Israeli Ambassador Ron Dermer believes his country should overlook the anti-boycott law and allow their visit. Dermer said, “Out of respect for the U.S. Congress and the great alliance between Israel and America, we would not deny entry to any member of Congress into Israel.

According to “a source with direct knowledge,” Trump said that because Omar and Tlaib both supported the boycott, “then Israel should boycott them.”

Axios reports:

Israeli officials say congressional Democratic leadership pushed Dermer to allow the congresswomen into the country. Their advocacy, per those officials, is a major reason why Netanyahu will allow the two women in.

The Democrats had argued that if the Israeli government blocked Omar and Tlaib’s entry, then other Democratic members would cancel a planned, AIPAC-sponsored Israel trip in solidarity, these officials said.

Last week, the Israeli deputy national security adviser Reuven Azar held an interagency meeting at the prime minister’s office with representatives of the foreign, interior and strategic affairs ministries to prepare for the visit, according to Israeli officials who were briefed on the meeting. The officials added the meeting focused on how to react to anti-Israeli statements by Omar and Tlaib during the trip and whether to allow entry to people traveling with them who aren’t members of Congress and who support the boycott-Israel movement.

Two senior Netanyahu aides said the issue was very sensitive and they were not allowed to discuss it.

Shocker: California DMV Discovers 84,000 Duplicate Voter Registrations

Westlake Legal Group california-2798001_1280-620x404 Shocker: California DMV Discovers 84,000 Duplicate Voter Registrations voter registration voter fraud Front Page Stories Featured Story California

California’s attempt to automate voter registration turned up some disturbing but unsurprising discrepancies.

From KTLA:

California’s ambitious effort to automate voter registration at Department of Motor Vehicle offices produced almost 84,000 duplicate records and more than twice that number with political party mistakes, according to an audit released Friday by state officials.

The analysis covered just the first five months of the new “motor voter” program, which was launched in April 2018. It found a wide array of problems with the rollout of the DMV system, including a limited amount of testing as well as inconsistent and confusing lines of communication between the state agencies involved in its creation. Many of the findings align with documents reported by the Los Angeles Times in an investigation earlier this year of the motor voter program.

Auditors reviewed more than 3 million voter registration files, comparing the records from both DMV and California’s secretary of state. They found 83,684 duplicate voter registration records, a mistake attributed to inconsistencies in what was listed for voters’ political party preferences.

Gov. Gavin Newsom’s director of the Department of Finance said “This action resulted in no impact to voter eligibility.”

Sure.

There’s pandering and then there’s whatever this is.

Multiple 2020 Democrat candidates tweeted out this week that Michael Brown, who assaulted a police officer and tried to steal his weapon, was murdered five years ago. Those who did so include Elizabeth Warren, Kamala Harris, and Beto O’Rourke. Did I wake up in a different timeline?

Kirsten Gillibrand also tweeted the same thing out, but her nearly non-existent campaign isn’t worth the time to go copy the link.

It’s one thing to virtue signal about a debatable issue for political reasons, but in the case of Michael Brown, there is no debate. Even Barack Obama’s DOJ concluded that the officer acted appropriately in defending himself.

Past the political nonsense being perpetrated here, this is dangerous. This is the kind of rhetoric that helped spark the Ferguson riots in 2015 and to keep repeating it, even after it was proven he was not murdered, is patently insane. Truth is not subjective and these tweets seek to rekindle a fire that has no business reigniting.

JLTY Podcast: The Second Amendment Is More Valuable to Black Americans Than Any Other Group

Westlake Legal Group 67760052_3307379342609377_2977875640075681792_n-1-620x620 JLTY Podcast: The Second Amendment Is More Valuable to Black Americans Than Any Other Group second amendment Podcast Kira Davis Just Listen to Yourself gun control Front Page Stories Featured Story civil rights black America 2A

It is my opinion that the second amendment is more valuable to the Black community than any other community in this country.

On this week’s Just Listen to Yourself podcast I explore the topic of gun control and why Black Americans in particular should be very wary of anyone who purports to remove their Second Amendment rights in favor of “the greater good”. I ask people to just listen to themselves when they tell me that President Trump wants to march me off to some concentration camp on the one hand and on the other ask me to surrender my right to bear arms.

[People have a problem with] Donald Trump, before him it was George Bush before him it was Ronald Reagan. Every time a Republican president comes in it’s the end of the world…. “They’re gonna put y’all back in chains!”. This guy hates black people. This guy wants to see black people back in chains. This guy wants to reinstate Jim Crow and segregation and look at who he’s supporting – white supremacy! Bigotry, prejudice racism – it’s dangerous. We can’t even trust the police. We can’t even trust our neighbors. Okay. Okay fair enough, then why in the hell are you asking me to give that guy my gun? …Donald Trump is the government for better or worse.  So you can’t tell me on the one hand that he is the biggest threat to my freedom and then tell me on the other hand to give up my gun. Hell, no. No black person in this country should be against the Second Amendment. No black person in this country should think that it is a good idea for the government to be the only people in the country that have weapons. Do you want the police to be the only people who have access to weapons. Really? You want the racist, bigoted, prejudiced White supremacist government of this nation to be the only people with access to guns? And White people who are telling me that I as a Black American should give up my guns because somehow inexplicably, as a legal and responsible gun owner I’m responsible for mass murder, even though that that’s literally the last thing that would ever cross my mind. Somehow, I’m responsible …that I’m supposed to give up my guns and at the same time you’re telling me “Trump hates you. I’m your ally. I’m going to stand up for you in the public square and I’m going to defend you against Trump. I’m your ally”.  But you know what I hear when you say that? What I hear you saying is that when Trump’s minions do inevitably march into my Black home take my Black family and march us off to concentration camp, you’re going to stand there with your hands in your pocket. You ain’t got no gun. What are you going to do? What are you going to do to protect me?

Listen to the rest of the podcast here. You can also subscribe on iTunes so you never miss a show. Please consider leaving a positive review. It helps so much.

I’ll talk to you next week. Until then…just stop and listen to yourself once in a while.

BREAKING: Universal Pictures Cancels Release of Film Showing Liberals Hunting Conservatives

Westlake Legal Group The-Hunt-620x281 BREAKING: Universal Pictures Cancels Release of Film Showing Liberals Hunting Conservatives universal pictures the hunt Popular Culture Movies mass shootings Hollywood Guns gun control Front Page Stories Front Page Featured Story Featured Post Entertainment deplorables Allow Media Exception #MAGA

Images from Universal Pictures: The Hunt

Following the recent shootings, and the controversy surrounding the content the studio has pulled the film from its release schedule.

In the wake of the recent shootings that transpired in El Paso Texas, and Dayton Ohio there has been controversy swirling around the prospective release of the thriller entitled “The Hunt”. Initial trailers had the movie appearing like a reimagination of a common plotline of people being hunted by others, in the vein of the classic “The Most Dangerous Game”.

Following the shootings, commercials for the film were halted, out of sensitivity. Word was just announced that the parent studio releasing the film, Universal Studios, has now decided to pull the movie entirely from its slated September 27 release date.

It was revealed this week that there was a unique aspect to this familiar storyline; the hunters were positioned as liberals, who would be hunting down a group of avowed conservatives/Trump supporters. (According to an advanced reading of the script one hunter refers to them as “Depolarables”.) Commonly this storyline does have the hunted individuals getting the better of their aggressors, meaning any MAGA supporters would ultimately triumph, but this does little to blunt the message of leftists violently hunting those on the right.

As I speculated on Thursday there was a likelihood of Universal pulling this title. There would be little they could defend in releasing the film into what is a very emotionally-charged marketplace. As this week showed as well, there was plenty of negatively-charged reactions on social media. Some took exception to the violent presentation of social opposition, and others simply said this type of gun-centric storyline was not proper at this moment.

One other factor behind this was surely the media would be struggling with how to spin this as a non-threatening film. They have busied themselves for months suggesting that words spoken by conservative leaders were tantamount to “violent rhetoric”; it would be a real struggle for them to them explain how showing actual political divisions on screen with guns was NOT some form of provocation.

Recognizing the sensitivities of the timing and the PR challenges in the marketplace led to the statement being released today.

“While Universal Pictures had already paused the marketing campaign for The Hunt, after thoughtful consideration, the studio has decided to cancel our plans to release the film, ” a spokesperson for Universal said in a statement. “We stand by our filmmakers and will continue to distribute films in partnership with bold and visionary creators, like those associated with this satirical social thriller, but we understand that now is not the right time to release this film.”

September is one of the softer segments on the release calendar, so pulling a film from that date is not too surprising. It presents at least a lowered amount of a risk from a revenue perspective, as opposed to missing out on a holiday release date. Look for the possibility of it being rescheduled to January, or February 2020 — another low-point on the calendar.

That Didn’t Take Long: Democrat Lawyer Blames Trump For Epstein’s Death

Well, that didn’t take long. After Jefferey Epstein’s alleged suicide Saturday morning, former Democratic congressional candidate Pam Keith took to Twitter to let everyone know that Epstein’s suicide is the fault of Republicans.

Keith, a lawyer and former Navy JAG, pinned the blame squarely on Attorney General Bill Barr who serves the government of the United States which is currently being led by President Donald Trump, who is a Republican. Therefore…Republicans.

Westlake Legal Group pk-620x419 That Didn’t Take Long: Democrat Lawyer Blames Trump For Epstein’s Death Trump suicide pam keith News Jeffrey Epstein Front Page Stories Featured Story Blame Game Bill Bar

Trump seems to have the same ties to Epstein that almost every ridiculously wealthy person on the east coast. They all traveled in the same social circles and rubbed elbows at the same parties. He also knew enough about Epstein to have him banned from his Mar-a-Lago country club in Florida. There can be no doubt that Trump knows more than he’s telling, even if it’s just gossip (but I suspect it is much more). However, it seems a bit…hopeful to suppose no one has more to lose than 45.

Bill Clinton flew on Epstein’s jet – known as the “Lolita Express” more than 26 times. The Clintons have nothing but politics. Their entire fortunes are based on being political figures. It is the only legacy they have. Trump only has the presidency to lose, and that’s not even the 4th most lucrative thing he’s done in his life.

That’s not to say that Trump is guilty of anything…or Clinton for that matter. These are all allegations, and after today it seems that’s all they’ll ever be. But it feels like a desperate stretch to supposed Trump is the most concerned with Epstein’s utterances, or that he has the most to lose.

I doubt too many people will be lining up to pay their respects to accused sex trafficker Jeffrey Epstein who reportedly hanged himself on Friday night in his jail cell. My colleague, T. LaDuke, posted earlier about Epstein’s death here.

If he hadn’t allegedly tried to hang himself two weeks ago, one may have thought his decision to commit suicide last night may have had to do with the fact that over 2,000 documents were unsealed yesterday by the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the Southern District of New York. On July 18, I posted that those records were expected to be unsealed within days here.

At that time, one of the lawyers involved in the case told Vanity Fair that, “It’s going to be staggering, the amount of names. It’s going to be contagion numbers.”

Another said, “Nobody who was around Epstein a lot is going to have an easy time now. It’s all going to come out.”

The court records “include affidavits and depositions of key witnesses” stemming from a 2015 civil defamation lawsuit filed against both Epstein and his former girlfriend and ex-madam, Ghislane Maxwell, by Virginia Roberts Giuffre.

Giuffre alleges that Epstein and Maxwell “kept her as a “sex slave” in the early 2000s when she was underage.” According to Fox News, in one of the unsealed documents Giuffre claims “she was forced to have sex with former Senate Majority Leader George Mitchell and ex-New Mexico governor and Clinton cabinet official Bill Richardson.”

Giuffre is currently 33.

Sen. Mitchell, now 85, told Fox “The allegation contained in the released documents is false. I have never met, spoken with or had any contact with Ms. Giuffre.”

However, a former Epstein employee, Juan Alessi, states in a sworn affidavit disputes the senator.

A spokesman for Richardson told Fox that the allegations are “completely false.”

Fox News reports:

Giuffre claimed in a May 2016 deposition to have been trafficked to have sex with and provide erotic massages to powerful politicians, foreign leaders and well-heeled businessmen. In ordering the documents released, the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit also warned that the allegations contained within them are not necessarily proven.

Giuffre alleged in her own deposition that she was allegedly forced to have sex with Richardson, 71, Britain’s Prince Andrew, Hedge Fund manager Glenn Dubin, American scientist Marvin Minsky, “another prince,” “a large hotel chain owner,” Stephen Kauffman, and model scout Jean Luc Brunell.

All of those implicated so far have denied their involvement.

A spokesman for Dubin told Fox, “Glenn and Eva Dubin are outraged by the allegations in the unsealed court records, which are demonstrably false and defamatory.”

According to the documents, “Giuffre allegedly had sexual relations with Prince Andrew in three separate locations—Maxwell’s London apartment, New York, and Epstein’s private island, Little St. James, in the U.S. Virgin Islands.”

Also included in the documents are flight logs including names of passengers aboard the private jet.

The records are unsealed. I am not a lawyer, so I don’t know what effect, if any, Epstein’s death will have on their status. But I would imagine reporters poured over the documents quite thoroughly on Friday.
