FBI: South Carolina man bought gun for attack “in the spirit of Dylann Roof”

Federal agents arrested a man Wednesday who they say wanted to use a gun in an attack “in the spirit of Dylann Roof,” reports CBS affiliate WBTW.

Benjamin Thomas Samuel McDowell, 29, is charged with felon in possession of a firearm or ammunition, according to court documents.

Federal authorities say that on January 6 McDowell posted on Facebook Messenger that he was looking for a gun and met an undercover FBI employee about a week later at an unidentified hotel in Myrtle Beach.

According to a sworn FBI statement, agents began investigating McDowell, who allegedly connected with white supremacist groups while serving previous prison sentences, after he threatened a synagogue on Facebook.

McDowell reportedly wrote that fellow white supremacists weren’t active enough: “All they wanne [sic] do is stay loaded on drugs the Jews put here to destroy white man…”

McDowell allegedly told the agent he wanted to “conduct an attack on non-whites without getting caught.”

The document says McDowell posted statements online praising Roof, but did not appear to have formulated any specific attack plans. Roof was sentenced to death for killing nine black worshippers in a Charleston church.

In one conversation, McDowell allegedly told the agent he wanted to “do something on a f****** big scale and write on the f****** building or whatever, ‘In the spirit of Dylann Roof.’”

In another alleged conversation, McDowell allegedly said “I just be plotting it out, like, I mean you just run up there on them if they back there partying, and all, with a f****** AK and rip them sumbitches down, and throw, a damn, something at them.”

Federal authorities allege McDowell bought a .40 caliber Glock and hollow point ammunition from the undercover agent on Wednesday. Agents reportedly said he was also supposed to talk about his attack plans over lunch, but the documents don’t say whether that happened. They arrested him “soon after” at the Hampton Inn on Celebrity Circle in Myrtle Beach.

A detention hearing is scheduled for Feb. 21 in Florence.

Who is Killing Bald Eagles

On my property on the Eastern Shore there are a mated pair of Bald Eagles and several Juveniles that frequent the trees along the water. It is an incredible sight to see these majestic birds swoop down on the water and catch a fish, to haul it back to land to eat. The juvenile birds can be mistaken for Ravens, in that they don’t develop the distinctive plumage until they are about 4 years old. Once a protected species due to extinction fears, the Eagles have made a remarkable recovery, and are no longer on the endangered list.

The abundant wildlife along the Atlantic Coast provides an ideal habitat for the birds, so sightings are common. Which is why this report has the entire Eastern Shore (DelMarVa) upset.

Bald eagles in Maryland may have been killed by humans, authorities say

Thirteen bald eagles found dead last month in Maryland didn’t die of natural causes. Authorities hint that humans may be to blame.

The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service released the results of the necropsy done on the eagles, found February 20 near Federalsburg, in Maryland’s Eastern Shore. The results indicate the eagles, which didn’t show any outward signs of trauma, didn’t succumb to disease or some other natural cause.

Ruling out a disease — such as avian flu — as the cause is important, the Fish and Wildlife Service said, considering the area’s many poultry farms and migratory birds.

“Our investigation is now focused on human causes and bringing to justice the person(s) responsible for the death of these eagles,” the Fish and Wildlife Service said in a statement.

But the service, which is working with the Maryland Natural Resources Police, didn’t give out any more details in the case, citing the ongoing investigation. A $25,000 reward leading to the arrest and conviction of suspects has been offered.

Arizona Tea Party’s New Version of the KKK

With all the hate being spouted by Arizona Tea Party and Republican elected officials in Arizona…

This one comes as no surprise.

This one predated the Giffords assassination attempt and mass murder…

Arizona vigilante guilty of murdering Latino man, daughter
The penalty phase of Shawna Forde's trial is scheduled to begin Tuesday.

Shawna Forde - Convicted of Murder

An Arizona jury on Monday convicted anti-illegal immigration activist Shawna Forde of murder in the killing of a Latino man and his 9-year-old daughter during a 2009 vigilante raid she led on their home.

The Pima County jury convicted Forde on eight counts, including two counts of murder for the shooting deaths of Raul Flores and his daughter, Brisenia, and the attempted murder of the child’s mother, Gina Gonzales, at the family’s rural Arivaca home on May 30, 2009.

The child and her father were American-born U.S. citizens.

The jury also convicted Forde on two counts of aggravated assault, and one count each of burglary, armed robbery and aggravated robbery.

The jury is scheduled to return Tuesday for the penalty phase of the trial. Read the rest of this entry »

Terrorist Attack at Moscow’s Domdedovo Airport

A suicide bomber set off an explosion this morning in the baggage arrival section of the Domodedovo Airport, which is the principal International Airport in Moscow. At least 39 people were killed and over 160 were injured.

The commentator here talks about “Airport Security”. Unfortunately the one area of an airport which is not secured is the arrivals area. In most airports, people can enter or exit that area from the Arrivals area of the airport at will without going through any security scanning. It would not have been difficult for a terrorist to sneak into that area pretending to be someone meeting an arriving passenger.

The ugly truth is Airport Security is really about protecting the expensive airplanes and facilities… Not the passengers.

No word on who the terrorists might be, or what their motivation is yet. Russia, like America certainly has a large enough whack-job population for this to have been a “statement” by a crazy.

Why We Are Never Going To Have That Talk…

There will never be an “honest discussion on race” with conservatives…

Because conservatives are fundamentally dishonest on race.

This screed, by Dennis Prager illustrates that exactly.

Liberals Dishonestly Describe Connecticut Murders

By Dennis Prager

After 50 years of being inundated with stories of white racism, and being taught in college that in this white-dominated society, only a white can be a racist, the American public has been properly brainwashed into accepting the otherwise incredible: A black man murdered eight white people at his place of work because they were white, and the media story is about the murderer’s alleged experiences of racism.

“50 years of stories of being inundated with stories of white racism”? Prager sets the stage right off here for two core conservative memes – “black people are whiners”, and “white people are victims”. Essentially without “victims” you cannot have modern conservatism. The etymology of such “victimhood” is disturbing, originating from the bowels of the white supremacist groups, who found “white victimology” as an effective recruiting tool – just as Hitler found German victimization by Jews prior to WWII fertile ground for Nazi recruitment. Thus you hav a core belief set which turns every shred of objective reality, whether scientific and social research,  statistical data collected by dozens of governmental or commerical entities, and analysis…

Utterly and completely on it’s head. Truth here, even if buttressed on the foundation of science and mathematical certainty… Is irrelevant. Blame the victims, and claim vicitmology!

Here’s the Associated Press Report from Aug. 7, four days after the murders. It was reprinted in The Washington Post and throughout America:

“To those closest to him, Omar Thornton was caring, quiet and soft-spoken … But underneath, Thornton seethed with a sense of racial injustice for years that culminated in a shooting rampage Tuesday in which the Connecticut man killed eight and wounded two others at his job at Hartford Distributors in Manchester before killing himself.

“‘I know what pushed him over the edge was all the racial stuff that was happening at work,’ said his girlfriend, Kristi Hannah.

“‘He always felt like he was being discriminated (against) because he was black,’ said Jessica Anne Brocuglio, his former girlfriend. ‘Basically they wouldn’t give him pay raises. He never felt like they accepted him as a hard working person.’

“‘Thornton changed jobs a few times because he was not getting raises, Brocuglio said.”

The New York Times Aug. 3 headline read: “Troubles Preceded Connecticut Workplace Killing,” and in the second paragraph, the Times reported:

“He might also have had cause to be angry: he had complained to his girlfriend of being racially harassed at work, the woman’s mother said, and lamented that his grievances had gone unaddressed.”

On Aug. 7, 2010, The Washington Post headline read, “Beer warehouse shooter long complained of racism.”

Of course, Thornton was fired for stealing beer, and there was video proof of him doing so. But this fact — the one indisputable and most pertinent pre-murder fact — got lost within the larger context of Thornton’s claims of being a victim of whites.

Those preoccupied with Thornton’s charges of workplace racism might wish to reflect on this: Racist and other bigotry-based murderers always blame their victims. Medieval Christians who murdered Jews blamed the Jews for poisoning wells, baking Christian children’s blood in their matzo or some other terrible crime. Whites who lynched blacks blamed those blacks for rape or some other crime. Nothing is new about the Thornton racist murders except that the society in which in it occurred concentrated on the racist’s excuses rather than on his murders.

ONLY those folks who murder because of race? What about the guy down at Ft. Hood – who murdered because he was a whackjob who felt he was persecuted by Christians and Jews? Or – the Va Tech Killer, who murdered because he was a whackjob, and his motive… Well they’ve never figured out his motive, but from his self published manifesto we get – “”You forced me into a corner and gave me only one option…You just loved to crucify me. You loved inducing cancer in my head, terror in my heart and ripping my soul all this time”.”
