    The suspected gunman in an attack on a mosque in Norway on Saturday was inspired by recent white extremist attacks in New Zealand and the US, online posts suggest. Police in Norway have so far only said the attack in Baerum, a town 20km from Oslo, the capital, will be investigated as a possible act of terrorism. In messages posted on the day of the attack, Philip Manshaus, a 21-year-old man who has been named by local media as the main suspect, described himself as “chosen” by “Saint [Brenton] Tarrant”, the gunman who killed 51 people at mosques in New...

    Online message board 8chan’s fortunes worsened on Tuesday, as the site was once again made homeless by a technical services provider and its owner was called to testify before the US Congress after 8chan was linked to the weekend mass shooting in El Paso, Texas. The House of Representatives Homeland Security Committee demanded that owner Jim Watkins, an American living in the Philippines, testify about 8chan’s efforts to address “the proliferation of extremist content, including white supremacist content.” The committee’s Democratic chairman, Bennie Thompson, and Mike Rogers, the committee’s ranking Republican, sent a letter to Watkins asking him to appear...

    The owner of the anonymous message board 8Chan, Jim Watkins, has unequivocally stated that the manifesto which was said to have been posted by the El Paso Walmart shooter on his website was not actually posted by the killer. Just moments before the deadly shooting in El Paso on Saturday, a sinister four page long manifesto was posted to 8Chan by someone who claimed to be the shooter. However, Watkins, an Army veteran, asserted that the shooter actually posted on Instagram prior to the attack — and whoever uploaded the manifesto to 8Chan was not the person who committed the...

    After two recent mass shootings in El Paso, Texas, and Dayton, Ohio, President Trump said his administration would ask social media companies to develop tools that could detect potential mass shooters. While delivering a speech on the recent violence, Trump said “we must do a better job of identifying and acting on early warning signs,” and he suggested social media companies could develop new ways of catching “red flags.” “I am directing the Department of Justice to work in partnership with local state and federal agencies, as well as social media companies, to develop tools that can detect mass shooters...

    The mass shootings in El Paso, Texas and Dayton, Ohio are horrific tragedies. In the case of the El Paso shooting, the suspected terrorist gunman appears to have been inspired by the forum website known as 8chan. Based on evidence we've seen, it appears that he posted a screed to the site immediately before beginning his terrifying attack on the El Paso Walmart killing 20 people. Unfortunately, this is not an isolated incident. Nearly the same thing happened on 8chan before the terror attack in Christchurch, New Zealand. The El Paso shooter specifically referenced the Christchurch incident and appears to...

    ...Moments before the El Paso shooting on Saturday, a four-page message whose author identified himself as the gunman appeared on 8chan. The person who posted the message encouraged his “brothers” on the site to spread the contents far and wide. In recent months, 8chan has become a go-to resource for violent extremists. At least three mass shootings this year — including the mosque killings in Christchurch, New Zealand, and the synagogue shooting in Poway, Calif. — have been announced in advance on the site, often accompanied by racist writings that seem engineered to go viral on the internet....

    On December 15, 2016, after Trump won the election, DNI James Clapper executed a document entitled “Procedures for the Availability or Dissemination of Raw Signals Intelligence Information by the National Security Agency Under Section 2.3 of Executive Order 12333.” On January 3, 2017, then-Attorney General Loretta Lynch executed the document. These new documents show how desperate Clapper and Lynch were to get this done in a hurry before Trump was sworn into office.

    On 27 April, before he burst into a San Diego synagogue and opened fire, killing one worshipper and injuring three more, the gunman said goodbye to the community that radicalised him. “It’s been real dudes,” he posted on the far-right politics board, /pol/, on the image-posting site 8chan. “I’ve only been lurking for a year and a half, yet what I’ve learned here is priceless.” The story was familiar. Six weeks earlier, a 28-year-old had killed 50 people at two mosques in Christchurch, New Zealand. Before starting his attack, he, too, had posted on 8chan’s /pol/ board. “It’s been a...

    One day after John T. Earnest allegedly stormed into a synagogue in Poway and opened fire in an attack that killed one person and left three injured, federal agents moved quickly to trace his online movements by getting two search warrants — one on an infamous website that is a haven for extremist and racist content, and another on the digital giant Facebook. The two warrants obtained by FBI agents sought information not only on the online history of the accused gunman, but also those who interacted with him on his postings on 8chan, an online forum that is home...

    Full Title: FBI Serves Incredibly Broad Warrant To 8chan, Demanding Info On All Users Who Responded To A Shooter's Post Internet hellhole 8chan has been hit with a federal search warrant. The site, created to serve those who felt 4chan's nearly-nonexistent moderation was too restrictive, has been front and center recently due to its hosting of manifestos by mass shooters who apparently frequented the site. In this case, an investigation into a shooting at a California mosque has led the FBI to the pages of 8chan. Postings at the site -- along with some at Facebook -- have linked the...

    SAN DIEGO – A search warrant has revealed new details about the alleged gunman in an deadly attack on a synagogue in Poway. The warrant reveals that John Earnest told others he lit part of a mosque on fire in Escondido prior to the shooting. “I scorched a mosque in Escondido with gasoline,” Earnest wrote. “and they never found [expletive] on me.” The website he posted that comment to is called 8ch.net, often referred to as 8chan, which serves as an open forum for users to post and comment about issues with anonymity. The search warrant alleges that Earnest posted...

    A Bay Area man who allegedly talked online about wanting to emulate the Poway synagogue shooter “except with a Nazi uniform on” is in county jail and facing three felony charges, after an investigation by the FBI and Concord police. Concord resident Ross Anthony Farca, 23, was charged this week with making criminal threats, as well as manufacturing and possessing an assault weapon. The charges stem from comments Farca allegedly posted to his account on Steam, a popular video game platform. Farca’s screen name was “Adolf Hitler (((6 Million))),” a reference to the number of Jewish people killed during the...

    The FBI has been made aware of threatening, anti-Semitic online posts about a candidate for Seattle City Council, the American Jewish Committee has condemned the posts and other candidates have spoken out. The anonymous posts were made on the website 8chan about District 2 candidate Ari Hoffman and were reported to the FBI by an organization that monitors anti-Semitic and other activity online. 8chan is a notorious message-board website. The man accused of a deadly shooting at a San Diego-area synagogue in April is thought to have posted a hateful screed there shortly before the incident. “The FBI is aware...

    Vice correspondents Lani Levine and Elle Reeve have been accused of breaking into a bedroom in the Philippines home of 8Chan owner Jim Watkins with a camera crew. The accusation was made by the verified 8Chan Twitter account, which said that the reporters and their crew entered Watkin’s bedroom before being ordered out of the property. Reeve is best known for her work in the Charlottesville documentary for Vice News. Earlier this month Vice published an article about 8Chan referring to it as the place where “racists get radicalized.” “Sites like 8chan and others where racists can get radicalized online...

    It was just minutes before the shooting when he saw the post. At 11:05 a.m. on Saturday, Colin, a 25-year-old in Yucaipa, California, logged into 8chan. It was only his second time ever on the site, he told BuzzFeed News. Someone close to him is a QAnon believer, and after hearing them spout "some really crazy shit," Colin went on the site out of curiosity. 8chan — an online message board full of white supremacists, conspiracy theorists, Trump fanatics, and violent trolls — was where the Christchurch mosque shooter first announced his plans for the attack. So, when Colin saw...
