    FULL TITLE: WAYNE ALLYN ROOT=> The Vegas Massacre Exposé: What Really Happened? The Vegas Massacre is clearly the new "JFK Murder Conspiracy" updated for the 21st century. The whole story stinks to high heaven. It's rancid. Clearly, our own government, FBI and Las Vegas police are involved in some sort of cover-up. The question is- what are they covering up?Las Vegas is my home. I have the top radio talk show in this town. Many dozens of Vegas residents have gotten in touch with me to give me their take on the Vegas Massacre. Included in that group has been...

    Iraqi pro-government fighters from the Popular Mobilization Units have found a mass grave in the country’s northern province of Nineveh containing the bodies of dozens of Christians believed to have been executed by Daesh Takfiri terrorists. An unnamed source from the Syriac Orthodox Church told Arabic-language al-Ghad Press news agency that the volunteer forces, commonly known by the Arabic name Hashd al-Sha’abi, unearthed the mass grave along with security troops in Halila region near the village of Badush, located some 15 kilometers northwest of Mosul. The source added the mass grave contains the bodies of 40 Christian victims, noting that...

    A former friend and classmate of Nikolas Cruz says he would follow her around, abuse his girlfriend and even talk about killing his friends' parents, adding to the shocking claims that have emerged about Cruz in the days since the Florida high school shooting. Ariana Lopez told ABC News on Tuesday she and her friends reported Cruz’s behavior to school officials multiple times between 2016 and 2017. Cruz was eventually expelled from Marjory Douglas Stoneman High School, where he shot and killed 17 last week. “He talked about killing our parents, our friends, boyfriends and girlfriends,” Lopez said. “He would...

Regime forces secured eastern Hama in October of last year, allowing Daesh terrorists to enter several parts of Idlib, which is held by opposition forces and armed anti-regime groups. Operating in coordination, both Daesh and Assad regime forces have advanced far into Idlib following three months of...

Prosecutors formally charged him on Tuesday with “terrorism and attempted terrorism”.Akilov wanted to “instigate fear among the public in Sweden and force its government and parliament to end Sweden’s participation...

    Suspected ISIS propaganda was found in Central Nebraska not far from the small town of Elm Creek. Somewhere along an Eastbound off-ramp on I-80 and Hwy 183, a computer disc was found along with literature that appeared to be ISIS propaganda. “There’s a lot of vehicle traffic in that location,” said Captain Bob Anderson with Buffalo County Sheriff’s Office. The disc was found by a man Thursday afternoon sometime between 3 p.m. and 4:18 p.m. […] According to the Buffalo County Sheriff’s Office, the disc was logged into evidence and forwarded to the FBI. …

    U.S. military officials on Tuesday revealed that ISIS has lost 98 percent of the territory it once held, and since President Trump took office, half of its so-called “caliphate” has been captured. You can thank the Obama administration for that, says Marie Harf, now a political commentator for Fox News. Here she is on “The Five” to explain. Marie Harf: "The strategy that has led to a virtual defeat of ISIS in the caliphate…is largely a strategy that was laid out during the #Obama administration by military commanders." #TheFive — Fox News (@FoxNews) December 27, 2017 So, is...

    There is nothing more characteristic of the Trump era, with its fire hose of misinformation, scandal and hyperbole, than that America and its allies recently managed to win a war that just two years ago consumed headlines and dominated political debate and helped Donald Trump himself get elected president — and somehow nobody seemed to notice. I mean the war against the Islamic State, whose expansion was the defining foreign policy calamity of Barack Obama’s second term, whose executions of Americans made the U.S.A. look impotent and whose utopian experiment drew volunteers drunk on world-historical ambitions and metaphysical dreams. Its...

    A Swedish radio station says a pirate broadcaster briefly broke into its Friday morning show and broadcast an English-language pop song with lyrics urging Westerners to join the Islamic State group. […] Bauer Media operates the Mix Megapol station in Malmö on which the song was aired. Malmö is Sweden’s third-largest city. The 24Malmö news site said the song, titled “For the Sake of Allah,” played non-stop for about 30 minutes on the FM and internet-based station. …

    Moscow, Russia - Abdulmajid Abakarov, a 12-year-old boy from Russia's troubled province of Dagestan, had not seen his mother in three years. Zagidat Abakarova, 34, and her two younger children were "forcibly held" in Syria by her husband, who had joined ISIL, Russian officials said. On October 21, the boy waited for her at the airport in Grozny, the capital of neighbouring Chechnya, in an agitated crowd of civilians, security officers and journalists. Days earlier, Chechen leader Ramzan Kadyrov announced the arrival of seven "rescued" wives and 14 children of Russian ISIL fighters who had been killed, sentenced to death...

    It may not be politically popular to raise concerns about the human rights of Islamic State fighters and their families. But the International Committee of the Red Cross, which has monitored the treatment of the wounded, prisoners and civilians in wartime for a century and a half, sought to do just that in a strongly worded statement on Thursday. The organization is concerned about rhetoric that “dehumanizes” and “demonizes” the enemy or suggests that a particular adversary is “outside the bounds of humanity” and can be treated “as if humanitarian law doesn’t apply,” the group’s deputy director for the Middle...
  • Why Did the Islamic State Claim the Las Vegas Shooting? ("Converted to Islam months ago")

    The Atlantic ^ | October 2, 2017 | Graeme Wood, National correspondent
    This morning, the Islamic State’s semi-official news agency, Amaq, took credit for the Las Vegas massacre, which killed 58 and wounded another 515. The likely killer, identified by police as 64-year-old Stephen Paddock of Mesquite, Nevada, was not known to be a supporter of the Islamic State, or indeed a Muslim of any type. For now, the only evidence that the Islamic State was involved is its own assurance—first a press release announcing that a “soldier of the Islamic State” executed the concertgoers, and a follow-up for the baffled, explaining that he converted to Islam months ago. The FBI has...

    When Edward Snowden decided he wanted to release details about the NSA's intelligence operations to the public, he reached out to Laura Poitras, a 49-year-old film maker and political activist opposed to the war on terror. As the Washington Post noted on Monday, Poitras had "the odd distinction of sharing a byline in The Washington Post and in London’s Guardian newspaper last week on two blockbuster stories." snip But perhaps it isn't such a mystery why the U.S. government might want to question Poitras if you simply crack open John R. Bruning's 2006 book, The Devil's Sandbox: With the 2nd...

    Trump won. And at the moment he's winning the war against ISIS, said one Mideast expert who cautioned against U.S. involvement in Syria from the beginning. When I called Pat Lang at his home inside the Beltway, he said that ISIS forces are being pummeled by the coalition of the Syrian Army, the Russians, Hezbollah and various Shiite Muslim militias. Soon, Lang predicted, ISIS "will cease to be an effective combat force and they will go underground." That of course would represent a major victory for the minority view expressed by Trump. That view - also supported as by two...

    U.S. intelligence analysts have gained valuable insights into the Islamic State's planning and personnel from a vast cache of digital data and other material recovered from bombed-out offices, abandoned laptops and the cellphones of dead fighters in recently liberated areas of Iraq and Syria. In the most dramatic gain, U.S. officials over the last two months have added thousands of names of known or suspected Islamic State operatives to an international watch list used at airports and other border crossings. The Interpol database now contains about 19,000 names.

    A year ago today, Omar Mateen murdered 49 innocent men and women at Pulse Nightclub, armed with an assault rifle and semi-automatic pistol before pledging allegiance to the Islamic State during a phone call with police negotiators and then killing himself. Rather than tell the truth, Attorney General Loretta Lynch told Orlando's gay community that the FBI didn't know Mateen's real motivation. And when she told grieving families that "we stand with you," Lynch didn't tell them that the Obama administration didn't trust them with the facts about the terrorist that just killed their loved ones. At Lynch's direction, the...
