Arrested in the Philippines in 2019, he is alleged to have trained to be a pilot in order to use a hijacked plane to crash into a building on American soil. Novel strategy!
The FBI describes him as a Kenyan national, but it is pretty clear that Cholo Abdi Abdullah, working for the Somali terrorist group al Shabab, is a Somali.
Maybe the FBI doesn’t want to say that so as not to offend the sensibilities of Rep. Ilhan Omar.
Yippee! The FBI worked really hard, did I say really hard, to nab another Islamic terrorist, but I could care less when they have not worked really, really hard to discover who are the terrorists who plotted and are still plotting to overthrow our election system and indeed our government.
I know it would have been sad if this pathetic creep had gotten away with hijacking a plane, but that pales in comparison to the Communist takeover of the United States happening before our eyes.
So is this little nugget thrown out to divert our attention?
Reader Cathy sent me the Justice Department press release last night, here, and this morning I searched for news on the FBI’s big-get and it is everywhere. Every Leftwing media outlet has the news***, probably front page, happy to distract us from the real terrorists behind the Democrat Party and their Chinese overlords.
As usual, the UK Daily Mailhas a report with a photo of Cholo Abdi Abdullah.
Feds charge Kenyan al-Shabab terrorist with plotting 9/11-style attack on American city: Jihadi trained as a pilot and was arrested in Philippines with a gun and a bomb
As usual the Daily Mail has a handy summary at the top of its story.
Cholo Abdi Abdullah allegedly spent years training to carry out a 9/11-style attack; he pleaded not guilty to the charges in a New York court Wednesday
Abdullah, who has been in custody since 2019, was extradited to the US Tuesday
He allegedly took orders from al-Shabab commander behind 2019 Nairobi attack
He researched ways to enter the US and how to hijack a plane, prosecutors say
Abdullah faces multiple charges and if convicted 20 years to life in prison
It is not clear which skyscrapers or cities were part of the alleged plot
But the acting Manhattan U.S. Attorney called it ‘a chilling callback’ to 9/11
I’m waiting for a mugshot(s) of the major plotters, the terrorists, behind the coup to overthrow our country.
***Search the Somali Islamic terrorist’s name and see what I mean about the widespread coverage.
“I don’t want her remembered as the woman in the suitcase that was just thrown away.”
The other day I said I would post a few stories that have gone “down the memory hole” mostly because they don’t fit the media narrative when it comes to ‘new Americans.’
Do you remember this story from last summer when a former Tyson Foods meat plant worker, a Somali by the name of Mahamud Tooxoow Mahamed, was found to have kidnapped three little girls after their mother went missing?
I found only one story that was posted after the initial flurry of news about the discovery of Jessica McCormack’s body which had been crammed into a suitcase and flung into a ravine.
Mahamed is still a fugitive from justice.
If you read the whole long sad tale published in local media (it is over 2,400 words long), you will see that Jessica got mixed up with some scum who brought her life to an untimely end.
I’m posting the story, not so you can tsk! tsk! over her mixed up life, but because it goes against the narrative the politically correct want you to believe about refugees and other immigrants as supposedly salt-of-the-earth people just looking for a better life.
It is the kind of story that should be told as a warning to other young naive women, but it won’t be told in any big way because it depicts an African, a Muslim, as, frankly, a vile man that got through our supposed screening process coming in, and then got out of the country apparently just as easily.
Jessica McCormack’s murder doesn’t make any sense. The 25-year-old’s partially-clothed body was discovered in a suitcase near Noel in late July. She was identified through dental records. Since her murder three months ago, her friends continue to search for answers.
McCormack was a beautiful soul who brought people together, friends say. Life wasn’t easy for her, but she showed an unending love for all people, said her best friend, Megan Bailey.
“I don’t want her remembered as the woman in the suitcase that was just thrown away,” Bailey said, “but how she loved everyone. It didn’t matter what race, what religion, she freakin’ loved you.”
McCormack’s death has spurred her friends to fight for justice. They seek answers. They want to know why their beloved friend was taken, leaving behind three young daughters. Bailey said the pain of losing McCormack is still intense.
“It’s been three months that she’s been gone,” Bailey said. “It still hurts as much as the first day. I still wake up in the morning and think, ‘Maybe I’ll get a message from Jess today.'”
McCormack Goes Missing
Her best friend knew something was wrong right away. The two, who were soul sisters, had known each other for about three years. The two had no secrets.
McCormack and her children were over at Bailey’s house on July 14. McCormack played with Bailey’s children. When Bailey didn’t hear from McCormack on July 15, she became worried. “(But) murder wasn’t my first thought. I thought she needed to get away.”
McCormack had left for a few days in June, Bailey said. She was simply tired of all the fighting with Mahamud Tooxoow Mahamed, her husband, whom Bailey refers to as “Tito.”
Bailey said the two were not married by law but through their Muslim culture.
However, Bailey said McCormack and Ibraham Akfeen, who is the father of her youngest child, had planned to make a fresh start in St. Louis. [Honor killing?—ed]
Ongoing fighting and domestic disputes with Mahamed, however, colored McCormack’s world.
“She told me, ‘If I end up dead one day, Tito is going to be the reason,'” Bailey said.” She wanted to come visit. She was tired of all the fighting. It was an ongoing, everyday battle. Their relationship was very tumultuous. It was hardly ever good.”
Bailey encouraged her to break it off with Mahamed. The ups and downs of McCormack and Mahamed’s relationship took their toll.
Why didn’t she leave?
“She was scared,” Bailey said. “She wanted some sense of normalcy for her girls. She said, ‘I’m going to keep trying because there’s something good in him.'”
So far, charges have been filed against one man. Those charges only include kidnapping at this time.
Mahamed, 37, a Somali national, was charged in a criminal complaint filed Aug. 13 in the U.S. District Court in Springfield, Mo., according to information provided by the Justice Department. Mahamed is not in federal custody and is a fugitive from justice.
Mahamed is out of the country and was last known to be in the Mexico and Guatemala area, said McDonald County Sheriff Michael Hall. Mahamed recently posted on his Facebook account that he’s back in Somalia.
The Federal Bureau of Investigation and the Justice Department have said they will not extradite a non-naturalized citizen, Hall said.
In September, Hall said Mahamed was a person of interest, due to the number of domestic violence calls involving the couple. In McDonald County, Mahamed also still faces two felony charges from 2017, against another woman in Noel. He is charged with one count of sodomy in the second degree and one charge of unlawful use of a weapon.
Lack of action by the Noel Marshal’s Office actually catapulted the situation into a completely different mode, Bailey said.
“The Noel Marshal’s Office did nothing,” Bailey said. “If they had been proactive, Jessica would still be here. I think they thought, ‘Jessica and Tito are fighting again.'”
Bailey said she believes Mahamed was helped by his family and his tribe.
“I think they all helped him get away.”
Her friends say that comments posted on social media tend to criticize McCormack for having multiple fathers for her three daughters. Others criticize her for being with a Somalian and being a Muslim.
“No matter what was going on in her life, she was always selfless and wanted to make sure others were OK before worrying about herself.”
Bailey said the young woman had planned to move on. The young Muslim woman, who had converted to that religion on her own accord, wanted to escape her own domestic situation.
“She was just done. She was starting to get her bearings. She was starting to ask questions about Christianity. She was trying to get her footing.”
Police charge man connected to parking garage shooting
Police have charged a man in connection with the shooting at the Portland Police Department garage earlier this month.
Abdikareem Hassan, of Portland, was arrested July 5th for driving under the influence in a stolen vehicle. The car in question matched the description of the dark sedan that opened fire on the Portland Police Department garage that same night.
While in custody, police say Hassan became uncooperative and assaulted an officer and FBI special agent in addition to damaging a police vehicle.
Hassan was then charged with refusal to submit to arrest, assault on a police officer, assault on a federal officer, and criminal mischief.
Additional evidence was provided on Sunday, linking Hassan to the non-fatal shooting, and he is now being charged with reckless conduct with a dangerous weapon and illegal possession of a firearm by a prohibited person.
Portland Police Chief Frank Clark thanked the public for their support following the shooting, saying “this type of attack on law enforcement is disheartening and personal, but the overwhelming number of positive letters, social media posts, statements denouncing violence against the department, and the calls we have received reaffirm our belief that we have the support of our community.”
Now that is something you can do!
Even if you aren’t a Mainer, send a message of thanks to this police department and any department in the country where they are keeping you safe while under attack by lowlifes.
In my mind this is an especially egregious case because America gave him a chance at a better life and he says to us: S**** you!
If anyone has a pipeline to Tucker Carlson, he might be interested in the Maine Somali attacking the Portland police!
Endnote: If you missed my post at RRW yesterday about a Burundian refugee who supports Black Lives Matter, see it here.
I’m guessing at the outset that the attacker is a Somali, just a guess. And, if she is, this news could have been posted at Refugee Resettlement Watchthis morning along with a post there about a Somali teen attacking his white neighbor and walking free.
Hate crime charges being brought against Nimo Jire Kalinle.
Woman punched stranger at Oregon bus stop because she hates ‘white people’: court docs
A black woman is facing hate crime charges in Oregon for allegedly attacking a mom at a bus stop while saying that she hated “white people,” court documents show.
Nimo Jire Kalinle, 42, on Jan. 19 began punching Janae Jordan in the face after getting off a bus at a stop in North Portland, where the victim had been waiting with her husband and young daughter, according to court documents obtained by The Oregonian.
“It’s because you’re white and I hate white people,” Kalinle told Jordan when the woman asked why she was attacking her, a probable cause affidavit shows.
The victim’s husband stepped in and restrained Kalinle, who is black, until cops arrived, KPTV reports.
Jordan told investigators she did not know Kalinle and had never met her prior to the alleged bias attack, the station reports.
Kalinle, who was taken into custody Sunday, was later indicted on multiple criminal counts in the bus stop assault, including first-degree bias crime, felony assault and interfering with public transportation. She pleaded not guilty to those charges Monday, KPTV reports.
Kalinle was arrested after failing to show up for a Feb. 5 arraignment, prompting authorities to issue a bench warrant for her arrest in the bus stop beatdown, The Oregonian reports.
I expect that when she appears in court on March 6th, we will hear that she is mentally incompetent just like the punk in Missouriwhich begs the question, what happened to “robust vetting?”
Aren’t we weeding out the mentally impaired? I know the answer—we are not blocking the admission of migrants who need mental health treatment.
This story reminds me of the 2016 story at RRW about a Somali woman attacking a white woman in her own yard with a flag pole. I think that Somali refugee woman is still on the loose.
