Boulder shooter Ahmad Al Aliwi Alissa, not being a white supremacist, just may have carried out his murderous grocery store massacre in retaliation for U.S. activities in the Middle East, including Joe Biden’s bombing of Syria little more than a month into his presidency. If so, he would be the latest in a line of Islamic terrorists who have tried to wreak revenge for our war on terror by slaughtering innocent Americans.
On Feb. 25, a month into his presidency, the Biden administration wagged the dog and bombed Syria, conducting an airstrike that reportedly killed 22 Iran-backed fighters in an apparent response to rocket attacks against U.S. targets in Iraq that injured American troops and killed a contractor. It was the Biden administration’s attempt to look tough before it gave away the nuclear store to Iran. Authorities said the airstrike targeted structures belonging to two Iranian-backed militias in Al Bukamal.
You will not hear this from the lamestream media or the Biden administration, both heavily invested in pushing open borders and open immigration, as well as their white supremacist and gun control narratives. A Syrian Muslim terrorist shooting up our grocery stores doesn’t follow their script. Consider this little tidbit from Laura Loomer and the National File:
Ahmad Al Issa, the suspect in the Boulder, Colorado King Soopers shooting, a Syrian migrant to the United States, swore allegiance to ISIS prior to the shooting, says Syrian migration expert and former congressional candidate Laura Loomer.
On her Telegram channel, Loomer wrote, “Source tells me shooter carried out an attack in the name of ISIS. Biden admin has already given orders to keep it under wraps to avoid conversation in the media about Islamic terrorism and reversal of Trump’s travel ban, which the terrorist was opposed to.”
Speaking to National File, Loomer explained that her source is embedded in Boulder, Colorado law enforcement, and spoke to her on condition of anonymity. Loomer explained that the Biden administration was briefed on the shooter’s allegiance to ISIS, and is attempting to contain the information for fear of a second immigration scandal. Joe Biden infamously rescinded President Donald Trump’s travel ban restricting movement from countries known for exporting radical Islamic terrorism. …
Loomer reached national notoriety for exposing the extent of the Syrian refugee crisis in the run-up to the 2016 election when she famously traveled to Greece and recorded video of Syrian migrants, who had obtained fake passports with the goal of entering the United States. The migrants were hoping to enter the United States to vote for failed presidential candidate Hillary Clinton. Loomer also recorded undercover video of Huma Abedin, the top aide to Clinton, saying that the Syrian refugees should be allowed into the United States. The undercover video was referenced by President Trump during a debate with Clinton, and may have contributed to his landslide victory.
So, why, doubters will say, hasn’t ISIS taken credit for Boulder, or why hasn’t the shooter spilled the beans? Pounded into submission by President Donald Trump ISIS has learned not to blow its cover but to silently take advantage of an administration looking the other way while shackling law enforcement and pushing open borders.
Again this possibility doesn’t jive with the leftist mantra of the threat of domestic violence coming, not from groups like Antifa, the Marxist Black Lives Matter, or Islamic terrorists, but from gun-toting white supremacists. When the sex-addicted Atlanta shooter was taking out what he saw as the instruments of his temptation, the lamestream media and the agenda-driven Democrats were sure to identify him as a “white male church-going Baptist“ guilty of a hate crime against the largely Asian employees slain in Atlanta that worked at spas and massage parlors.
Many liberals, including Kamala Karris’ niece, also immediately assumed the Boulder killer of ten, including a police officer, was also a white Christian male in embarrassing tweets that had to be quickly deleted. When the Boulder shooter was identified as a Muslim Trump-hating immigrant from Syria, they grew silent and the description that did not fit their narrative was not included in news reports and public commentary, As the Western Journal reported:
The suspect of the shooting at a crowded supermarket in Boulder, Colorado, on Monday afternoon that left 10 people dead has been identified as Ahmad Al Aliwi Alissa.
His Facebook page, which has been deleted, showed that he lived in Syria until he was about 2 years old, when he moved to the United States, according to Heavy.
Mass shootings by Syrian Muslim immigrants do not fit the liberal narratives of gun-crazed white supremacists stalking minorities or that we need more gun control laws. While the FBI barnstorms the nation in search of white male Trump supporters who stormed the Capitol on Jan. 6, putting up billboards nationwide, Trump-hater Ahmad Al Aliwi Alissa was known to and ignored by an FBI too busy looking for white nationalist domestic terrorists. Never mind that no guns were confiscated on Jan. 6 and the only person shot was a Trump supporter. As Fox News reported:
On a Facebook page purported to belong to Alissa, he wrote messages that criticized former President Donald Trump’s response to immigration and refugees, allegedly writing “Trump is such a d—.”….
Boulder Police Chief Maris Herold said Tuesday she did not believe Alissa was known to her department. Meanwhile, law enforcement officials told The New York Times his identity was known to the FBI because of his alleged connection to a different person whom the bureau was investigating.
Well, isn’t that special? A little more diligence by the FBI and Trump-hater Ahmad Al Aliwi Alissa could have been stopped. Certainly, there is no law that would have kept Trump-hater Ahmad Al Aliwi Alissa from his rampage yet there was the Democrat-controlled Senate was trying to not let this tragedy go to waste and pass more laws seeking to eviscerate the Second Amendment, which is the only gun license we need and disarm more potential victims. As Sen. Ted Cruz responded to the hysterical liberals:
“Every time there is a shooting, we play this ridiculous theater where this committee gets together and proposes a bunch of laws that would do nothing to stop these murders,” Cruz said.
“What happens in this committee after every mass shooting is Democrats propose taking away guns from law-abiding citizens.”
This is what happened after the San Bernardino shooting. In San Bernardino, California, bitter people clinging to their guns and their religion, full of antipathy towards people not like them, shot up a Christmas gathering, killing 14 Americans. They were radical Islamic terrorists, a phrase which did not fall from President Obama’s lips, nor is it likely to fall from Joe Biden’s.
At San Bernardino, as in Boulder, there were warning signs that law enforcement and the FBI ignored. Citizens were afraid to report suspicious activities for fear of being called racists and white supremacists. In San Bernardino, like other mass shootings, the slaughter of the innocent could have been cut short by someone with a gun. As the widow of one of the victims noted:
Amy Wetzel is the widow of San Bernardino shooting victim Michael Wetzel and she is also applying for a concealed carry weapons permit. During a recent interview, she speculated that the outcome of the San Bernardino terrorist attack could have been very different if someone had been carrying a concealed gun.
“What if someone in that room (at the Inland Regional Center) had had a permit to carry (a concealed weapon),” she said.
What if the residents of San Bernardino hadn’t been so intimidated by the fear of being called racists, a consequence of you and your administration’s political correctness? What if they said something when they saw something? As Fox News reported, a Sen Bernardino woman observed preparations for the attack but said nothing:
A California woman reportedly noticed “suspicious activity” at a house connected to one of the Muslim terrorists in the San Bernardino massacre but did want to “profile” him, amid questions about how family members and others could have overlooked the stockpile of ammunition and explosives left behind in his home.
A man identified as Aaron Elswick told an ABC News affiliate that a fellow neighbor noticed “quite a few packages” being delivered “within a short amount of time” at a home registered to the mother of Syed Farook, who with wife Tashfeen Malik, fatally shot 14 people and wounded dozens of others Wednesday at a business complex in San Bernardino, Calif.
The Islamic State-inspired Malik reportedly entered the country on a so-called “fiancé visa” that listed a false or at least inaccurate foreign home address.
Elswick said his neighbor also noticed the occupants of the home purportedly owned by Farook’s mother “doing a lot of work out in the garage” but perhaps “didn’t want to profile” Farook and his family.
What happened in Boulder and Atlanta is what happens in Chicago on a typical weekend. Black lives are snuffed out by other blacks and no one cares, no one remembers their names. Only when the victims are minorities and the shooter is a white male does anyone remember, care, or make their life a cause célèbre.
And we should not forget that classic example of domestic terrorism, what the Obama-Biden administration described as “workplace violence” in Ft. Hood in Texas. One of the great scandals of the Obama administration was its shameful designation of the Nov. 5, 2009, rampage at the Army base in Killeen, Texas, by Maj. Nidal Hasan as “workplace violence.”
Thirteen people were killed, 14 if you count the baby being carried by a pregnant soldier, and 32 others were shot in the Nov. 5, 2009, rampage at the Army base in Killeen, Texas, when Hasan, a self-proclaimed “soldier of Allah,” shouted “Allahu Akbar” and began his shooting rampage in defense of the Taliban. Soldiers at Ft. Hood were not allowed to carry their weapons on base, the Obama-Biden’s nod to gun control proved disastrous.
Joe Biden wants to leave us defenseless like those in Boulder, San Bernardino, and Ft. Hood. Defenseless and not protected from our enemies, foreign and domestic.
