Pentagon to Root-Out White Extremists, but Silence on Black Man in Recent Shooting

I’ve been checking every day or so to see if there is news, any news, on the Navy medic, Fantahun Girma Woldesenbet, who attempted to kill two fellow Navy men in Frederick, Maryland a week ago.

I figured by today the military would be ready to report a motive for the attempted murder of a white Corpsman and a Hispanic Corpsman, but nothing.

Speculation is that since the shooter’s name is common in Ethiopia that he is an immigrant from Africa either directly or as first generation. But, we will likely never hear any further information because the shooting does not fit the media narrative.

 

We don’t know much more than what was reported in the day or so after the attack. Was new American Woldesenbet on a mission, or was he (just) a nutcase?

And, it took a day for a photo of the shooter to be released—released by Frederick Police—not directly by the Navy. Perhaps they were forced to release it because people were sending photos of other black men around on social media claiming they were Corpsman Woldesenbet.

From Heavy.com:

Fantahun Girma Woldesenbet Photo: Frederick Police Release First Picture of Shooting Suspect

 

Frederick Police released the first photo of shooting suspect Fantahun Girma Woldesenbet this afternoon, the day after they say he shot two Navy sailors and was fatally gunned down at Fort Detrick.

Woldesenbet, a U.S. Navy hospital corpsman, allegedly wounded two people at a military installation about 10 minutes from Fort Detrick, a U.S. Army base where he worked Tuesday, April 6, 2021. He was shot and killed at the base when officials said he fled a stop at a checkpoint and brandished a gun at about 8:45 a.m. He was 38 and lived in Frederick. The two injured victims survived.

More here,  but there isn’t much.  Seems the story is being dropped down the memory hole.

And, maybe that is because the military is busy, busy, busy attempting to root- out the white supremacists Biden and Harris are sure are hiding within the ranks.

Meanwhile, only days after the Maryland shooting, the Pentagon’s new chief says the hunt is on for the extremists, an undertaking clearly inspired by the January 6th demonstration at the Capitol.  The Biden cabal believes they are insurrectionists.

I would like to know someday if Fantahun Girma Woldesenbet is an extremist of some stripe, but we will likely never know.

From Newsmax:

Defense Secretary Memo Addresses Extremism in US Military

Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin III signed a memo on Friday in which he calls for “immediate actions” to weed out “extremist behavior” in the military.

Defense Secretary Austin’s mission: “…combat this scourge.”

The new orders come after Austin spoke with advisers and reviewed the results of the Defense Department-wide stand down issued in early February.

The memo said, “The vast majority of those who serve in uniform and their civilian colleagues do so with great honor and integrity, but any extremist behavior in the force can have an outsized impact.”

A study begins today!

Austin has commissioned a study “on extremist behavior within our Total Force, to include gaining greater fidelity on the scope of the problem.” And this group will meet around April 14 and be given 90 days to submit their “recommendations for medium-range and long-range plans to combat this scourge” to Austin.

Maryland CAIR Hissy-Fit: Will BLM Graffiti “Hate Crime” be Another Hoax?

It was earlier this month when we saw that the destruction of a Black Lives Matter sign at a church in Missouri turned out to have been the work of— wait for it—a black man.

Sorry move along, nothing to see!  No White supremacists lurking there.

Missouri Hate Crime? Church’s BLM Banner Ripped and Windows Broken

Let’s see what happens with this latest gasp! shocker.  In the increasingly diverse Howard County, Maryland someone had the audacity to paint over the world BLACK on a Black Lives Matter sign at a Middle School.

***Update*** A reader found a photo of the defaced sign!

The “disturbing crime” left only the words LIVES MATTER, a racist phrase if there ever was one!

Of course my first question is why is there a BLM sign at any public school?

And, that brings me back to my post of a couple of days ago when I wondered out loud why anyone is sending their kids back into public school when parents have just been given the opportunity to make the break!

Candace Owens: Get your kids out of public schools!

And this one from a week ago:

Why Does Any Conservative Want their Kids in Public Schools?

Here is CAIR’s press release as the hunt intensifies for those wily White supremacists!

CAIR Condemns Racist Graffiti at Md. School, Welcomes Hate Crime Probe

(BALTIMORE, MD, 3/16/21) – The Maryland office of the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) today welcomed a hate crime investigation into racist graffiti reportedly discovered at Glenwood Middle School in Howard County, Md.The incident took place Saturday when the word “Black” in a Black Lives Matter marquee was spray-painted over.

[….]

CAIR’s Director in Maryland Zainab Chaudry.

Howard County Public Schools’ Superintendent Michael Martirano issued a statement condemning the incident and confirming that the graffiti was quickly removed. He added that the incident was being investigated by police as a hate crime. It read in part: “We believe the lives of our black and brown students and staff should not be diminished and devalued in this way. We reiterate our support for the fact that Black lives matter.”

“As schools resume in-person instruction after a long and difficult year, students deserve to know that they will be returning to a safe, inclusive learning environment in which hate won’t be tolerated,” said CAIR’s Director in Maryland Zainab Chaudry. “We look forward to learning the outcome of the investigation, and appropriate consequences for the perpetrators of this disturbing crime.”

Taking a trip down Memory Lane…

Back in 2013, several Maryland conservative Tea Party activists, me included, put on a conference in Annapolis and our featured speaker was the legendary Pamela Geller.

Of course CAIR busied itself trying to kill our gathering and our FREE Speech by intimidating the hotel where we had a contract. Fortunately the hotel stood firm and our conference went on.

They also attempted to intimidate other speakers planning to speak at the event.

I wrote about it here at my blog Potomac Tea Party Report, which I am delighted to see is still there! Chaudry had just appeared on the scene at that time.

CAIR-MD intimidating speakers at MD CAN (again!); boosts registrations!

WordPress Deplatforms Conservative Treehouse, NOT the First and Won’t be the Last!

Many of you have sent me the news that the Conservative Treehouse (aka The Last Refuge) has been notified by WordPress.com that they are being given the heave-ho and now must find a new host for their popular site.

When I saw the news of course I felt bad for them because I have been there.

Longtime readers here and at my blog, Refugee Resettlement Watch, which was birthed and began being hosted by WordPress in 2007 (and into early 2019), know that the same thing happened to me.

But, at least the Treehouse was given notice and time to remove their material.  I was shut down without notice and had to hire a professional webmaster to help me get my material, but even with that, all of my photos/graphs/charts and all of my thousands of subscribers did not make it to the new RRW.

Search engines (Google at least) still directs people to the old closed site.

(In the meantime, I had started Frauds & Crooks and got it removed from WordPress before they could do a job on it too.  I am at a hopefully safe host for now!)

By the way, I was not alone.  Creeping Sharia and Bare Naked Islam got the WordPress ax before I did.  I should have known it was coming.

I discuss all of that here in a panel discussion on Censorship at the Social Contract gathering in the fall of 2019.

So when I saw the news about the Conservative Treehouse, my first thought was why hadn’t the blogger(s) there made the move sooner.

You can read all about my communication with WordPress.com over their censorship by going here.  They said I had violated their “terms of service” after I contacted them to ask where was my site?

So, on July 2nd (this is all happening in 2019) I went back to the “community guardian” and asked these questions:

Can you tell me exactly what caused your concern about Refugee Resettlement Watch. This month marks the 12th anniversary of the launch of that blog with you. And, in recent months there has been little new activity there. So just wondering why it is now, after all this time, [it’s] not aligned with your terms of service.

Is there a particular post(s) that concerned you and if so could you direct me to them?

Have you had recent complaints about the blog even as it hasn’t been active for many months?

Were references to certain organizations a concern?

Would really love to know as I find another host for the nearly 9,000 posts archived at RRW.

Greatly appreciate any feedback you can give me!

Thank you!

The Community Guardian responded.  She says flat-out they don’t have to give me any reasons!

All of that was to preface my comments on this story at The Lid:

Go read it.  But, The Lid beware!  This form of censorship is NOT NEW! You are nuts to stay on WordPress.com. They will find you as soon as you become a threat to some group or individuals on the Commie Left.

If Biden and his comrades have their way we will be communicating by quietly traveling around the country and meeting in peoples’ basements!

Dallas: More Deaths Linked to the Kenyan Killer, Family Not Notified

I know all of you are completely immersed in the election news and the latest revelations about Joe Biden’s son Hunter and his apparent pay for play scheme with Ukrainian oligarchs, but there are a few other things happening.

I’ve missed a lot of criminal news in recent weeks because I too am consumed by concern over the direction the country might take in only a few short weeks.

The ultimate nightmare: Knowing that the last face your beloved mother saw on this earth was the face of Kenyan Billy Chemirmir.

However, there is one story that should not be forgotten in the flood of other news and that is the horrific case of alleged killer of senior women, the case of Billy Chemirmir who is suspected of murdering upwards of 20 plus women and one man, senior citizens all, who were allegedly killed so that Chemirmir, who should have been removed from the country years earlier, could sell their jewelry and other valuables.

There is only one paper in the country on top of the story and that is the Dallas Morning News and its reporter Charles Scudder.

Scudder has a new story published two days ago. Unfortunately it is behind a pay wall, so I can give you only a few snips.  The Morning News would do itself a service (and these murdered women and their families) if the breaking Chemirmir stories were not so removed from national public view and discussion.

Police didn’t tell her they believed Billy Chemirmir killed her mom in 2017. She learned on Facebook

Cheryl Bixler Pangburn thought a heart attack or stroke killed her mother.

It wasn’t until a high school classmate sent her a Facebook message two and a half years later that she learned the name Billy Chemirmir.

“My mother was a victim of Billy Chemirmir,” wrote Karen Harris, whose mother died at a Plano senior living community in 2018. “I was given a list of other possible victims. I noticed the name of what I believe is your mom. … I thought since you might have gone through the same thing I did, you might find comfort in talking.”

Until then, Pangburn had no idea who Chemirmir was, much less that he’d been accused of stealing from and killing multiple elderly women at Dallas-area senior living communities.

Before her death, Bixler appeared in a brochure touting the wonderful environment at the Parkview. “The management is so willing to just bend over backwards to make it pleasant to live here,” she said. The promotional material featuring Bixler is now no longer available.

Her mother, Marilyn Bixler, was found dead Sept. 17, 2017, at Parkview in Frisco, a luxury senior living community. Several weeks later, a woman survived an attack at the complex and later helped lead police to Chemirmir.

Somewhere, Bixler’s name was on a list of potential victims. A Frisco police lieutenant had signed a sworn affidavit saying her death was linked to the other crimes. The medical examiner had even changed her cause of death from a heart attack to “undetermined.”

Yet no one ever called Pangburn. No one told her how her mother really died.

[….]

Pangburn’s family is one of dozens in North Texas that have been caught in a limbo caused by numerous investigative delays in a complicated case that stretches over multiple jurisdictions.

Chemirmir has been indicted in 14 deaths, and has been publicly linked through civil suits to at least 10 others. Even more families have said their loved ones’ causes of death have been amended by medical examiners in Collin and Dallas counties to “homicidal violence” or “undetermined” in connection with the investigation.

The rest of the story is behind a paywall here.  I sure hope reporter Scudder is working on a book!

Kenyan Killer Case Drags Out in Dallas due to COVID Excuse

Billy Chemirmir

I am sure the media and Texas officials who dropped the ball are hoping that the case involving the creep from Kenya who allegedly murdered nearly two dozen helpless seniors (almost all women smothered with pillows), in either assisted living facilities or in their own homes in order to steal their jewelry and valuables, disappears down the memory hole.

Correction: One of the daughters tells me that they were not assisted living facilities but “active living establishments with the promise of “monitored surveillance security and cameras throughout””.

The victims’ daughters aren’t going to let that happen as they report regularly at the website they created in hopes of keeping the case alive and to urge elected officials in Texas to place more regulations on facilities for seniors so that someone like Chemirmir won’t have access to vulnerable loved ones ever again.

Here is an e-mail update from the daughters whose website is called Save our Senior’ Safety (SOSS).

Update: Glenna Day’s cause of death (October 15, 2016) has been amended to homicide. This is the 5th homicide at The Tradition Prestonwood between July 18 and October 29, 2016.

We are adding Dr. Catherine Probst Sinclair to our victim timeline. Her family was suspicious of her death in April of 2018 as reported in the news.

This news story was the last we heard publicly about Dr. Sinclair. We have privately continued to support the Probst family as they work to seek justice for their beloved Aunt Cathie.

Medical Examiner Barnard

We Did Not Know We Needed to Raise the Roof – We Are Raising It Now

Dr. Jeffrey Barnard, Dallas County Medical Examiner told the Dallas Morning News that “If it was my parent, I’d be raising the roof.”

https://www.dallasnews.com/news/courts/2020/06/26/pandemic-causes-delay-in-investigation-trial-of-serial-murder-suspect-billy-chemirmir/

We did not know May 2016 to March 2018 we needed to “raise the roof” about lack of security, lack of sharing information where our loved ones lived, and they were murdered. We have learned a lot in the last years and we are not staying quiet any longer.

Dr. Barnard stated in the same article that the Chemirmir cases are “on the back burner” and he would work to clear the cases by the end of July.

Dr. Barnard’s investigation should be timely and thorough. Our loved ones’ cases deserve the truth. There are at least four cases where families are waiting to hear if their loved one was murdered. We have been told the police investigations have been closed. There is no new information. The families are waiting for the Dallas County Medical Examiner to amend the cause of death if it was murder. The families with cases that result in homicide amendments get to join other families awaiting trial.

Pre-COVID, the trial was scheduled to begin early April 2021. The Texas Supreme Court has issued an emergency order stating no jury proceedings may be held before October 1 with few exceptions. This is not the first delay mandated by the Texas Supreme Court. Jury trials in Dallas County have been suspended for 6 months as of this writing. Logically, this would delay the murderer’s trial to October 2021. If there are more delays, we may be looking at a 2022 trial date.

When we inquired about a trial date in late 2019, we were told we had to be patient and wait our turn. This is the way the justice system works in Dallas County. The trial date (April 2021) was scheduled in January 2020. We want to be clear. We will work within the boundaries of the system. But we will not be put on the back burner.

This is a capital murder case by one of the most prolific serial killers in Texas history. He targeted a vulnerable population that we all hope to safely be a part of – our beloved elderly, trusting, loving family members.

Other states have started jury trials carefully with guidelines to protect citizens from COVID. Texas needs to work to do the same.

We recognize these are turbulent times with COVID, economic challenges and social unrest. None of these will go away soon. We want to work for justice for our loved ones as solutions are sought for the other issues.

Notice in the timeline the daughters have posted that Chemimir had spent a short time behind bars in 2016 for trespassing at one of the murder scenes, but went right back to his gruesome work with a vengeance a week after his release. He simply chose a facility other than the one where he was caught trespassing.

Dallas police arrested him June 28, 2016 for trespassing at Edgemere. He was given a 70-day sentence and served time at Dallas County Jail. He was released early, 14 days later, on July 11, 2016. One can only imagine that some of those murdered during a period he should have been behind bars might still be alive and enjoying their families today.

 

Please visit SOSS and sign up to receive news on the case.

But even more importantly help keep this horrific story from going down the memory hole.

If you know anyone at Fox News please try to bring this story to their attention because you know the mainstream media is only too happy to see the politically incorrect story hidden forever because it goes against the entire Black Lives Matter narrative they are pumping up these days.
