Trump’s plan for dealing with domestic terror is missing in action

In the wake of the Oct. 31 terrorist attack in New York City, it’s clear that time has run out for the Trump administration to develop, articulate and implement a real strategy to deal with domestic radicalization. Due to politics, bureaucratic wrangling and a lack of resources, the United States is falling behind in combating the fastest-growing part of the terrorist threat.

After Sayfullo Saipov killed eight people in his massacre in Lower Manhattan, President Trump blamed weak immigration policies. But all the evidence suggests that the Uzbek-born Uber driver was radicalized after he entered the United States. During Trump’s campaign and presidential transition, his team railed against the Obama administration’s “countering violent extremism [CVE]” policies and promised to radically change the U.S. approach. But almost one year later, a plan is still missing in action.

Former officials and experts say the Trump administration is dismantling parts of the Obama-era initiative, especially those that involve working with Muslim groups, without anything to replace them.

“The attack on the West Side Highway is evidence of the current threat environment in which we live,” former homeland security secretary Jeh Johnson told me. “It’s critical that the U.S. government engage those communities in the homeland from which terrorist organizations may seek to recruit. I’m concerned that these efforts are atrophying.”

The Guardian: Alt-America: the time for talking about white terrorism is now

As Alt-America has grown, especially online, so has the violence that inevitably accompanies it: acts of domestic terrorism, hate crimes, and threats of civil war backed by a wave of citizen militias

First Coast News
FBI: JACKSONVILLE MAN ARRESTED FOR PLOTTING MASS SHOOTING AT ISLAMIC CENTER

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. - A 69-year-old Jacksonville man has been arrested for allegedly planning a mass shooting at an Islamic Center on St. Johns Bluff Road, according to several law enforcement agencies.

The Jacksonville Sheriff's Office, along with the FBI of Jacksonville, started investigating in October Bernandino Gawala "Nandie" Bolatete after a source tipped JSO. The source told police that Bolatete expressed strong anti-Islamic sentiment, including how he wanted to conduct a mass shooting at the Islamic Center of Northeast Florida, 2333 St. Johns Bluff Rd. S.

JSO said an undercover detective met with Bolatete and confirmed the information they received.

During the investigation, Bolatete made plans to conduct the mass shooting, including obtaining the weaponry to complete the attack, according to JSO Sheriff Mike Williams.

The undercover detective also learned that Bolatete made arrangements to get access to a gun silencer - a prohibited firearm accessory - delivered to his home on December 1.

During the delivery, JSO's SWAT Unit raided Bolatete's home on the 13000 block of Eucalyptus Drive and took him into custody.

ABC 7 San Francisco
FBI: Man planned Christmas terror attack for SF's Pier 39

Officials say they've stopped a man who was planning a possible Christmas terror attack in San Francisco.

We've learned the FBI has arrested a man by the name of Everitt Aaron Jameson from Modesto. They say he wanted to target Pier 39.

According to FBI documents, Jameson picked out that location because he "had been there before and knew it was a heavily crowded area." He added that it would be easy to "funnel" people into an area where he could inflict casualties.

Jameson reportedly said he was inspired by the New York terror attack on Oct. 31, when a man drove into a crowd and killed eight people, and the deadly 2015 shooting in San Bernardino.

The Hill
Exiting counterterrorism official warns of extremists’ access to guns in US

The retiring head of the National Counterterrorism Center (NCTC) warned ahead of his exit Friday about the ability for extremists in the U.S. to get lethal weapons.

In a final briefing with reporters ahead of his departure, NCTC Director Nicholas Rasmussen voiced concern about the ability to protect from mass casualty attacks.

“We find ourselves in a more dangerous situation because our population of violent extremists has no difficulty gaining access to weapons that are quite lethal,” Rasmussen said, according to The Washington Post. “I wish that weren’t so.”

Rasmussen, who served as the NCTC's director for three of his five years there, said he had no solutions to offer domestic law enforcement agencies working to prevent mass-casualty attacks, but said a link between the availability of guns and the potential for violence is a calculation for counterterrorism analysts.

“More weapons, more readily available, increases the lethality of those that would pick them up and use them,” he said.

Rasmussen said the U.S. should be focused on stemming the spread of violent ideologies, adding that anti-Muslim rhetoric has complicated that effort, according to the Post.

Lincoln Journal-Star
FBI accuses white supremacist of terror attack on Amtrak train in rural Nebraska

The FBI says an armed 26-year-old Missouri man who breached a secured area to stop an Amtrak train in southwest Nebraska in October has links to a white supremacist group and expressed an interest in "killing black people," according to court documents unsealed Wednesday.

Taylor Michael Wilson, of St. Charles, Missouri, is charged in U.S. District Court in Lincoln with terrorism attacks and other violence against railroad carriers and mass transportation systems.

In an affidavit attached to the criminal complaint, FBI Special Agent Monte Czaplewski said there was probable cause to believe that electronic devices possessed by Wilson and firearms owned by him "have been used for or obtained in anticipation of engaging in or planning to engage in criminal offenses against the United States."

Just before 2 a.m. on Oct. 22, an assistant conductor felt the train braking, searched for what was causing it and found Wilson in the engineer's seat of the follow engine "playing with the controls," Czaplewski wrote. ...

Two days later, according to the federal case, FBI agents searched his home in Missouri and found a hidden compartment with a a handmade shield as well as: "a tactical vest, 11 AR-15 (rifle) ammunition magazines with approximately 190 rounds of .223 ammunition, one drum-style ammunition magazine for a rifle, firearms tactical accessories (lights), 100 rounds of 9mm ammunition, approximately 840 rounds of 5.45x39 rifle ammunition, white supremacy documents and paperwork, several additional handgun and rifle magazines, gunpowder, ammunition reloading supplies, and a pressure plate."

Czaplewski said they also found 15 firearms, including a fully automatic rifle, ammunition and firearms magazines, and a tactical body armor carrier with ceramic ballistic plates.

I've read about this, but have not seen or heard one word on TV. It's probably on the news locally, but I guess if you're a white supremacist, you don't rate coverage on a national level. Had he been black or Muslim, this would have drowned out the news of the new book. Or maybe not. :think:

Clay Today (FL)
Clay County man enters guilty plea to bomb charge

JACKSONVILLE – An Orange Park area man who was accused of planning a terrorist bombing plot online will not stand trial in federal court.

Joshua Ryne Goldberg, 22, of Orange Park, on Dec. 20 waived his right to indictment and pleaded guilty to an Information charging him with attempted malicious damage and destruction by an explosive of a building, according to acting United States Attorney W. Stephen Muldrow.

Goldberg faces a maximum sentence of 20 years in prison, with a 5-year mandatory minimum term of imprisonment. A sentencing date has not yet been set.

According to the plea agreement, in the summer of 2015, the Federal Bureau of Investigation and law enforcement officers from Australia began investigating the online name “AusWitness” and determined that it was Goldberg.

Goldberg had come to the attention of law enforcement due in part to his postings concerning the May 3, 2015, attack by two gunmen at the Muhammad Art Exhibit and Contest in Garland, Texas. Prior to the attack, Goldberg posted a map of the location of the contest and urged anyone in the area to attack the event.

Goldberg’s posting was copied by gunman Elton Simpson, one of the two individuals killed during the May 3, 2015, attack. The FBI later located an online posting in which Goldberg took responsibility for inspiring the Garland attack, as well as two other planned attacks.

There's A Good Reason Feds Don't Call White Guys Terrorists, Says DOJ Domestic Terror Chief

Federal law doesn't make domestic terrorism a stand-alone crime. As a result, law enforcement is "somewhat reluctant" to call domestic extremists "terrorists." ...

Americans who are wondering why federal law enforcement officials seem so hesitant to call attacks by domestic extremists terrorism should take a look at the law, Brzozowski says. Although the U.S. code defines domestic terrorism as dangerous acts that appear intended to intimidate civilians, influence the government, or affect the conduct of government, there’s no broad criminal statute that outlaws those acts.

“In many instances, the government is going to be constrained, to a certain degree, from stepping in front of a podium and saying, ‘Ladies and gentleman, we’re revealing domestic terrorism here,’” Brzozowski said this week, speaking at an event hosted by George Washington University’s Program on Extremism.

“The department is going to be somewhat reluctant to come out in front during litigation in these types of cases and name someone as a domestic terrorist,” Brzozowski added, explaining that the statutes federal prosecutors often use against domestic terrorists don’t include the word terrorism.

“The notion that the government takes Islamic extremism more seriously than domestic terrorism is, frankly, not true,” Brzozowski argued. But federal prosecutors have fewer options for charging domestic terrorists with criminal conduct than they have for terrorists affiliated with or inspired by foreign terrorist organizations like the Islamic State group who might commit the very same act, he added.

Las Vegas Gunman Took Elaborate Steps to Hide His Tracks, New Documents Show
As he meticulously planned the Las Vegas attack, the man responsible for the worst mass shooting in modern American history took elaborate steps to stymie the inevitable law enforcement investigation, according to federal court documents unsealed on Friday.

The F.B.I. search warrants shed new light on the degree to which the gunman, Stephen Paddock, who killed 58 people and wounded more than 500 others when he opened fire on a crowd from a hotel room in October, planned the attack and prepared for the aftermath. One of the warrants described how Mr. Paddock “destroyed or tried to hide digital media devices.”

Investigators said he used anonymous communications devices, including a prepaid cellphone, to cover his tracks and employed a “level of sophistication which is commonly found in mass casualty events.”

“Paddock planned the attack meticulously and took many methodical steps to avoid detection of his plot and to thwart the eventual law enforcement investigation that would follow,” the F.B.I. said.

Mr. Paddock’s motive for the attack remains unknown.

California Murder Suspect Said to Have Trained With Extremist Hate Group

The California man accused of killing a 19-year-old University of Pennsylvania student earlier this month is an avowed neo-Nazi and a member of one of the most notorious extremist groups in the country, according to three people with knowledge of the man’s recent activities.

The man, Samuel Woodward, has been charged in Orange County, California, with murdering Blaze Bernstein, who went missing in early January while visiting his family over winter break. Prosecutors allege that Woodward stabbed Bernstein more than 20 times before burying his body in an Orange County park where it was eventually discovered. The two men had attended high school together.

Woodward, 20, is set to be arraigned on Feb. 2 and has not yet entered a plea. Orange County prosecutors say they are examining the possibility that the killing was a hate crime — Bernstein was Jewish and openly gay — and some recent news reports have suggested that the alleged killer might hold far-right or even white supremacist political beliefs.

Now, three people with detailed knowledge of Woodward’s recent past have been able to shed more light on the young man’s extremist activities. They said Woodward was a member of the Atomwaffen Division, an armed Fascist group with the ultimate aim of overthrowing the U.S. government through the use of terrorism and guerrilla warfare.

The organization, which celebrates Hitler and Charles Manson, has been tied to four other murders and an elaborate bomb plot over the past eight months. Experts who study right-wing extremist movements believe Atomwaffen’s commitment to violence has made it one of the more dangerous groups to emerge from the new wave of white supremacists.

Ex-NYC teacher, twin brother had students break down bomb materials for alleged terrorist strike in Bronx home

A former teacher and his twin brother kept more than 30 pounds of bomb-making materials in their Bronx home, along with a note suggesting they were planning to slaughter children, authorities said.

Federal officials arrested Christian and Tyler Toro, 27, in an early morning raid Thursday at their Pelham Parkway apartment and uncovered the material, along with notes and a diary referring to a plan called “Operation Code Name Flash,” authorities said.

“Under the full moon the small ones will know terror,” read a purple index card packed inside a yellow backpack, according to a criminal complaint. ...

A Dec. 4 bomb threat by a 15-year-old student lead to the plan’s unraveling, Miller explained. That student was arrested, and in early January, Christian Toro abruptly quit his job at the school, Miller said.

Two days later, Tyler Toro returned his brother’s school-issued laptop, and a technical specialist at the school found a digital copy of a bomb-making book on it, the feds allege. The tech reported the book, sparking the probe.

White Supremacist Was Planning a Church Shooting, Police Say

(FLORENCE, S.C.) — A white supremacist faces up to 10 years in prison for illegally buying a gun authorities say he planned to use in a hate crime attack similar to the South Carolina church shootings.

Benjamin McDowell, 30, pleaded guilty Monday to being a felon in possession of a weapon, according to reports by multiple news outlets. He also could be fined $250,000 when he’s sentenced at a later date.

Authorities first began investigating McDowell in December 2016 when he threatened a Myrtle Beach synagogue on Facebook. Local officials were already keeping tabs on him because he made friends with white supremacists groups and got tattoos associated with racist groups while in prison on a felony burglary charge, according to the FBI.

McDowell then said he wanted a gun and told an undercover FBI agent who offered to get him one that he planned to attack somewhere in the name of white power and write on the building “in the spirit of Dylann Roof,” according to court records. Roof was sentenced to death last year for a racist shooting that killed nine black worshippers at a Charleston, South Carolina, church. ...

McDowell, who couldn’t legally own a gun because of the burglary conviction, was arrested after the purchase. Agents said McDowell bought the gun — which had the firing pin shaved down so that it would not work — and ammunition for $109, which he had borrowed from his grandfather.

Deadly Connection: Neo-Nazi Group Linked To 3 Accused Killers

At first glance, five killings in three states since last May appeared to be unrelated, isolated cases.

But a common thread is emerging. Three young men have been charged, and all appear to have links to the same white supremacist group: the Atomwaffen Division.

Atomwaffen is German for "atomic weapons," and the group is extreme. It celebrates Adolf Hitler and Charles Manson, its online images are filled with swastikas, and it promotes violence.

One of the group's videos shows young men, wearing scarves over their faces and camouflage, firing rifles during military-style training. The video begins with group members shouting in unison, "Race War Now," and concludes with the tag line, "Join Your Local Nazis."

"Atomwaffen no doubt takes some of the white supremacist rhetoric to another level. The views that they articulate are white supremacists on steroids," said Joanna Mendelson, who follows extremist groups for the Anti-Defamation League in Los Angeles.

"And what is the change they want to see? Real-world violence. Real-world apocalyptic violence," she added.

The Latest: 2nd explosion badly injures woman in Austin

AUSTIN, Texas (AP) — The Latest on deadly package bombings in Austin, Texas (all times local):

12:30 p.m.

Police are responding to another explosion in Austin that badly injured a woman, hours after a package bomb killed a teenager and wounded a woman in a different part of the city.

Austin-Travis County EMS tweeted that an explosion Monday in southeast Austin injured a woman in her 70s, who has been hospitalized. A second woman from that address has been hospitalized with an unrelated medical issue.

Authorities have not said whether the most recent explosion was caused by a package bomb like the one that exploded earlier Monday.

Police Chief Brian Manley said at a news conference Monday that investigators believe the deadly blast Monday is linked to a March 2 package bomb that killed a 39-year-old man in another part of the city.

U.S. Attorney Identifies 3 Suspects In Mosque Bombing

http://minnesota.cbslocal.com/2018/03/1 ... PQ.twitter
The statement adds that the three men are also suspects in the Women’s Health Practice in Champaign on Nov. 7.

They were identified as Michael B. Hari, 47; Joe Morris, 22; Michael McWhorter, 29. All are from Clarence, a rural community 35 miles north of Champaign-Urbana.

Rep. Keith Ellison last year called on President Donald Trump to condemn the mosque bombing, and also condemned Trump adviser Sebastian Gorka’s comments about the explosion, suggesting that it may have been a hoax.

Mohamed Omar, executive director of the mosque, was there that morning and called the attack “horrific.” Video released in the aftermath showed the building shaking from the blast, and worshippers startled.
