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.

Colorado: The Ruger did it!

It looks like in less than his first one hundred days, Biden has an Islamic terrorist attack on his hands, but you will likely never hear those words uttered.

Just a nut with a gun, move along, nothing to see.

Of course, a week ago the nut with a gun was a white guy perpetrating a hate crime against Asians.

Ahmad Al Aliwi Alissa, not a white guy.

 

This week it’s a ‘new American,’ a Syrian Muslim, whose innocent victims are all white and you likely won’t see the phrase “hate crime” anywhere outside of conservative media.

Oh, don’t get me wrong, the Left will rage, but their fury will be directed at the weapon and not the man. (Biden will have his excuse.)

The Syrian immigrant is just a nut who had gone over the edge, driven there by Islamophobic America. And, they may go one step further and blame it on (understandable to them) pent-up Trump hatred.

Here is just one of many stories you will see today (this one at CBS) about the slaughter quoting Biden’s reaction:

We got ’em now. Go for their guns and it will take their minds off the invasion at the southern border.

At the White House, President Biden said another city has been “scarred by gun violence” and called on Congress to pass gun control measures. “I just can’t imagine what the families are feeling, the victims whose futures were stolen from them, from their families, their loved ones, who know have to struggle to go on and try to make sense of what’s happened.”

There was a delay by authorities in announcing the name of the suspect, so a bunch of Lefties went crazy on social media blaming whitey for the shooting.

See the Washington Examiner op-ed:

Ahmad al Aliwi Alissa isn’t a ‘white man,’ so can we make assumptions about what motivated him?

We know now that the man who shot up a grocery store Monday in Boulder, Colorado, is an immigrant from Syria named Ahmad al Aliwi Alissa. In the context of recent history, this means there’s reason to think he might be a Muslim terrorist. But saying that aloud will get you called a racist by the media.

For now, we’ll just have to pretend that this is another “lone wolf” who in no way fits into the totally not-real pattern (according to the media) of mass violence perpetrated by Muslim extremists in places as far-flung as Mumbai, Rouen, and Chattanooga and as close as Miami, San Bernardino and New York.

If Aliwi Alissa were white, we could at least assume, without any evidence, like the media are doing with the recent killing spree in Atlanta, that this was an act of white supremacism. Instead, it looks like we’re back to square one.

Gasp! Maybe he was a pro-Trump anti-masker! Opinion writer Eddie Scarry continues….

Of course, before the shooter was identified by police, liberals had been very eager to draw early conclusions about him. They were 100% certain he was white and perhaps even an anti-masker — i.e., a Trump supporter.

I’m serious. Liberal journalist Kurt Eichenwald *** mused on Twitter that the details might reveal that the shooting, which left 10 people dead, was an episode of “anti-masker violence.”

Meena Harris, the niece of Vice President Kamala Harris, tweeted immediately after the shooting that “violent white men are the greatest terrorist threat to our country.” She anticipated that Aliwi Alissa might be a real terrorist, but not the kind that Democrats would rather not acknowledge.

There is more.

But, speaking of nut jobs….

***Get a load of where this Leftie “journalist’s” head is!

At Breitbart:

Kurt Eichenwald’s COVID Freakout: ‘I Want to Find an Antimasker and Beat Them to Death’

(Islamic terrorists, not so much…..)

Eichenwald thinks the country is insane!

Is there a chance in hell that we will hear the truth if this later tweet speculation, that Biden provoked an Islamic terror attack, turns out to be on the mark?

There is so much news and commentary about this horrible event and I have a doctor appointment today with little time to look further.  So please send some links with updates via the comment section here at ‘Frauds and Crooks.’ 

I would love to know if anyone sees anything about how his Syrian family came to be living here.

And, of course, pray for the innocent victims’ families.

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

https://www.southbroadland.org/

 

Kansas City Presbyterian Church members who were proudly displaying a banner in support of Black Lives Matter were living in fear as their banners were being destroyed and a vandal was breaking windows on a regular basis.

That is until police set up surveillance and caught the racist hatemonger.

The story is from February (hat tip: Jim), but it doesn’t matter if I am late posting the news because this kind of news won’t spread beyond local reports. I just checked, and yup, KC news only.

And, of course we know why!  It doesn’t fit the narrative the mainstream media is attempting to send.  LOL! Imagine some white dude in a MAGA hat was vandalizing this justice-seeking “diverse” church.

Incidentally, it is for this kind of story that I originally set up ‘Frauds and Crooks’—to challenge the immigrant-diversity-brings-strength narrative the Left is constantly peddling!

From KCTV-5:

(be sure to watch the video)

CAUGHT IN THE ACT: Police conduct surveillance at KC church that was target of vandalism, make arrest

KANSAS CITY, MO — Wednesday night, Kansas City police conducted surveillance from inside a church that has repeatedly been the target of vandalism for months.

This is a screenshot of the KCTV-5 report and the only photo I could find of the racist hater who was destroying BLM signs. Chidera Okolo is a Nigerian name but there is no mention of how he came to be living here as a ‘new American.’

Church members are hopeful the destruction and their worries have finally come to an end thanks to an arrest. “As fate would have it, he did strike again and he was apprehended,” Ruling Elder at South-Broadland Presbyterian Darron Story said.

Kansas City police have investigated numerous reports of smashed windows and an attempted arson at the South-Broadland Presbyterian church.

Vandalism at the church began back in November of last year when someone damaged their Black Lives Matter sign. Then someone began smashing nearly every window that could be reached including 16 windows in one night.

“It’s been frightening to be honest with you to know that someone would go to such lengths to vandalize our building,” Story said. The suspect kept breaking windows in their nursery.

[….]

Wednesday night a police officer watched surveillance cameras from inside the church’s security office as another officer waited outside out of sight. They saw the suspect walk up to the church carrying a baseball bat. He was seen swinging it. Then officers heard two loud bangs.

As officers tried to arrest Chidera Okolo, police say he used the bat to strike an officer two times. A Taser was used and Okolo was eventually taken into custody. Investigators say he was wearing clothing that was consistent with the clothing worn by the suspect during previous vandalism at the church. He’s charged with assault and armed criminal action.

And that dear readers is probably the last you will hear about Chidera Okolo, not because he will be deported, but because he will likely be released into American society, maybe next-door to you!  After all, he only assaulted a police officer.

Serial Killers are Getting Away with Murder and Not Just in Texas

“…if only that detective unit had a little more intellectual curiosity, how many other people’s mothers could have been spared?”   

(Scott MacPhee whose mother was murdered by the Kenyan Killer)

 

Reporter Lise Olsen at the Texas Observer has done an extensive examination of the failure of police departments across the country to solve murder cases that if solved early could have saved many other lives.

https://fraudscrookscriminals.com/2019/05/22/texas-alleged-serial-killer-targeted-women-living-alone-family-in-kenya-hears-the-news/

The report is long and begins with a recitation of the failings in the Texas case to identify early-on an alleged serial killer I call the Kenyan Killer, Billy Chemirmir, who alternately is believed to have posed as a health care worker or a maintenance man to gain access to elderly women’s homes and apartments some in upscale senior living facilities where families had every expectation that their beloved mother was safe.

I have an extensive file on the case.  Click here.

See my post last month:

Texas: Another Indictment in Texas Serial Murder Case

Olsen, at the Texas Observer, features the Dallas area police departments failures, but broadens her report to explain a reduction in the number of murder cases solved nationwide is a growing and shameful problem.

I will add one more shameful matter involving the Chemirmir case and that is that the national media has apparently decided to relegate the case to Texas media only.

UNDETECTED

As more homicide cases go unsolved, the backlog of unsolved murders grows and serial killers are free to kill again. Too few police departments are effectively deploying their resources to stop them.

Please read it all.

Olsen wraps with this  story which I hadn’t previously heard about.  At least a half a dozen vulnerable women were killed after Carolyn MacPhee who died on December 31, 2017 at the hands of Billy Chemirmir.

She fought hard because his DNA was (too late) found on her glasses.

Carolyn MacPhee met Chemirmir in October 2016 when her husband of nearly 60 years, Jack, was dying of a progressive nervous system disorder. The MacPhees had met in the 1950s at Washington State University in the mountains of Spokane. Even in her early 80s, Carolyn still had the flair of the girl she’d been when they became college sweethearts. She didn’t want to send Jack to an institution, but needed help to care for him in their Plano home. She found Chemirmir, who was working under the alias Benjamin Koitaba, through a service that claimed to vet home health workers, although Chemirmir, using a fake ID and already with a criminal record, should not have passed a background check. [Should not have still been in the country in my view!—ed]

“Koitaba” worked as a replacement caregiver in the MacPhees’ home off and on for four months—long enough to learn the family’s routine and the layout of their home.

As part of the care team, he received notice when Jack died. He came back to murder his former patient’s widow six months later, according to a Collin County indictment.When found on Sunday, December 31, 2017, Carolyn was dressed up and ready to go out to church.

Her son, Scott MacPhee, came to his mother’s house to meet Plano police officers that day. He was mystified by what he observed: “It was cold that day, but her coat had disappeared. And two valuable rings she always wore were missing.” He challenged a Plano detective about the missing items, but the response was, according to him, “Old people hide their stuff.”There was blood in the bathroom, in the garage, near her body, and even on her glasses. And yet his mother had no obvious wounds. Officers collected no samples of the blood. Nor did they take photos or videos, he said. No autopsy was ordered by Collin County officials.

The death investigation seemed like a whirlwind, Scott said: “We found her, the cops show up, the paramedics show up, the CSI department shows up, and they rope things off, they do all their investigation, and the detective says she died of natural causes.”

Months later, when he saw the news stories about Chemirmir’s arrest and all the other killings and robberies of older women, he called police again.Eventually, they called back. Through cell phone records, investigators told him they knew that Chemirmir had visited his mother’s home on the day she died. They requested her bloodstained glasses, which he had saved. On them was Chemirmir’s DNA.

So far, Carolyn MacPhee is the only victim whom police have identified among Chemirmir’s former home health clients, although he worked in other homes between 2013 and 2019, her son said. In that same period, police say he was carrying outserial murders.

What Scott can’t stop wondering is this: How many elderly people were marked as natural deaths whose deaths were not natural at all?

Publicly, the Plano, Dallas, and Richardson police departments have said that they are reviewing more than 750 other unassisted elderly deaths over the past 10 years, but Scott is skeptical of their commitment to the cold murder cases. “I have no evidence they’ve done that. I’ve seen no more indictments.”

He now suspects his mom, fit and feisty, died only after trying to fight off her killer. He believes other lives could have been saved if the blood the killer left behind in his mother’s home had been tested sooner. “Nothing is going to bring her back, he said. “But if only that detective unit had a little more intellectual curiosity, how many other people’s mothers could have been spared?”

See Carolyn MacPhee’s obituary

Carolyn lived by Jesus’ commandment in John 13:34-35, “A new command I give you: Love one another. As I have loved you, so you must love one another. By this everyone will know that you are my disciples, if you love one another.”

Texas: Their Mothers Were Murdered!

Busted! Iranian Spy Published in the New York Times, Taught at Harvard

In other frauds, crooks and criminals news …..

“Afrasiabi allegedly sought to influence the American public and American policymakers for the benefit of his employer, the Iranian government, by disguising propaganda as objective policy analysis and expertise.”

(Seth D. DuCharme, Acting U.S. Attorney for the Eastern District of New York)

Two days ago the news broke that the US Justice Department had filed charges against a long time Iranian agent working for the Islamic Republic of Iran as a mouthpiece for the Ayotollah since the George W Bush administration and throughout the Obama administration. (Hat tip: Cathy)

He lived in the Boston area and worked with an unnamed Congressman as he built up his ‘credibility’ and became a published writer at The New York Times.

I think we should find out how much influence he had over the likes of Former Secretary of State John Kerry during the Obama give-away to Iran.

Here is the bare bones story at the Daily News:

Feds arrest nuclear scholar for failing to register as Iranian foreign agent

For more than a decade on print and on TV, he looked the part of an academic expert on U.S.-Iranian relations — but Kaveh Afrasiabi was secretly on the Iranian government’s payroll, the feds said Tuesday.

See below what Afrasiabi says about his 2019 book***

Afrasiabi, 63, a longtime U.S. resident, was charged with conspiracy to act as an unregistered foreign agent for working on behalf of Iran for the past 14 years, federal prosecutors in Brooklyn said.

A writer and scholar, Afrasiabi received a Ph.D. in political science from Boston University and wrote a thesis titled “State and Populism in Iran” under the guidance of famed historian Howard Zinn, according to the bio on his website. The feds say he lives in Watertown, Mass., just outside of Boston.

Afrasiabi’s expertise helped him land TV speaking gigs, and informed his op-ed articles in The New York Times and his books. He was also a visiting professor at Harvard University and University of California-Berkeley.

All the while, say the feds, he was supported by the Iranian government.

Daily News continues….

Wouldn’t you like to know how many Dems were getting advice from the alleged Iranian spy?

As recently as 2020, Afrasiabi provided advice to the Iranian government on how to handle the fallout from the U.S. killing of Gen. Qasem Soleimani.

He suggested the country stop providing information on its nuclear program until the UN condemned the killing, the feds said.

It would “strike fear in the heart of the enemy,” he wrote, according to prosecutors.”

 

Here is what the Justice Department press statement says about that last bit, about Trump’s killing of Soleimani and how Afrasiabi was directing how the UN Security Council should act and how a gullible US media should view it.

…. in January 2020, Afrasiabi emailed Iran’s Foreign Minister and Permanent Representative to the United Nations with advice for “retaliation” for the U.S. military airstrike that killed Major General Qasem Soleimani, the head of the Quds Force, the external operations arm of the Iranian government’s Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps, proposing that the Iranian government “end all inspections and end all information on Iran’s nuclear activities pending a [United Nations Security Council] condemnation of [the United States’] illegal crime.” Afrasiabi claimed that such a move would, among other things, “strike fear in the heart of [the] enemy.”

Read the Justice Department Criminal Complaint

And, see what Daniel Greenfield said at Frontpage magazine about the charges against Afrasiabi.

Who was the Congressman working with the alleged spy?  Dem or Republican we should be told!

***Don’t skip this!

A summary at Amazon of Iranian agent Afrasiabi’s November 2019 book (emphasis is mine):

With the advent of the Trump Administration, relations between Iran and the United States have become increasingly conflictual to the point that a future war between the two countries is a realistic possibility. President Trump has unilaterally withdrawn the US from the historic Iran nuclear accord and has re-imposed the nuclear-related sanctions, which had been removed as a result of that accord. Reflecting a new determined US effort to curb Iran’s hegemonic behavior throughout the Middle East, Trump’s Iran policy has all the markings of a sharp discontinuity in the Iran containment strategy of the previous six US administrations. The regime change policy, spearheaded by a hawkish cabinet with a long history of antipathy toward the Iranian government, has become the most salient feature of US policy toward Iran under President Trump. This turn in US foreign policy has important consequences not just for Iran but also for Iran’s neighbors and prospects of long-term stability in the Persian Gulf and beyond. This book seeks to examine the fluid dynamic of US-Iran relations in the Trump era by providing a social scientific understanding of the pattern of hostility and antagonism between Washington and Tehran and the resulting spiraling conflict that may lead to a disastrous war in the region.

They hated President Trump!

Kind of leaves you wondering what role the Iranian government had in the Great Election Steal of 2020.

And, one last thing!  So Iranian agents can teach at Harvard, but Trump aides are barred from teaching there, and a movement is afoot to strip Harvard degrees from anyone who was, or is, loyal to President Donald Trump.
