Mohammad Moghaddam, an immigrant, came to Amarillo with his family eight years ago from Iran.

Immigrant services from Amarillo would not discuss with reporters whether they helped relocate the family to the Amarillo area.

Police say Mohammad was upset he was passed over for a promotion so he took his manager and another person hostage.
He was shot dead by police.
ABC News reported:

Amarillo police say the armed man who took two people hostage inside a local Wal-Mart was a store employee who had a work-related dispute with the manager and that there was no reason to believe the incident had any ties to terrorism.

Police Sgt. Brent Barbee says the suspect, 54-year-old Mohammad Moghaddam, took his manager and another person hostage over a dispute related to a promotion. Barbee says Moghaddam was a current employee at the Wal-Mart store.

Police say officers responded to the incident around 11 a.m. Authorities say a police SWAT crew entered the area of the store where the hostages were located around 12:20 p.m. and fatally shot Moghaddam.

Barbee says Moghaddam was armed with a handgun.

Police Find 19 White Female Bodies In Freezers With “Black Lives Matter” Carved Into Skin

Rasheed Thompson, 39 of Chicago, was arrested in connection with a series of dead bodies found in a freezer located in his basement. According to reports, the bodies had the words “Black Lives Matter” carved into the foreheads of the corpses.

The Chicago coroners office made a gruesome discovery today after several 911 calls were placed by neighbors regarding their concern of suspicious activity at the residence of Thompson. At approximately 8 p.m., police were dispatched to South Pulaski Road and West Lexington Street. Upon their arrival, their arrival, authorities were met by a group of residents at the corner where they assisted police in locating the home in question. Police proceeded to the 3000 Block of West Lexington Street where they located the home. Authorities knocked on the door of the residence and was met by an African-American male, who appeared to be in his late 30’s and seemed to be “under the influence of drugs”.

Upon entering the home, authorities indicated that the home “smelled of death”. The power was off in the house however authorities found a gasoline powered generated running in the kitchen.

“A Black male, approximately in his 30’s, opened the door with the smell of alcohol and marijuana on his body. He appeared to be somewhat disoriented and his speech was slurred. We asked him for permission to enter the premises, however he seems reluctant to allow us to enter,” said Lt. Kyle Jennings. “After a few seconds, he mumbled “yes” to us. Once we entered the home, we were met with a very foul odor as if something was dead in the home. The power was off so we used our flash lights to look around. As we approached the rear of the home, a light was on in the kitchen. We asked the occupant for his name. He identified himself and told us he lived with his grandmother. In the kitchen, we found several handsaws covered in blood. Mr. Thompson pushed one of the officers and ran downstairs through a half-opened door in the kitchen.”

Lt. Jennings and two other officers chased Thompson down the stairs which is where the foul odor had gotten stronger. When the officers got to the basement, they found a series of freezers scattered around the basement. With no trace of Thompson, one officer continued to search for him as the other two pried opened three locked deep freezers. Upon their discovery, 11 decapitated bodies were found frozen, while the heads where in ziplock freezer bags. All of the bodies appeared to have been Caucasian women, possibly in their early to mid-20’s. The heads that were found all had the words “Black Lives Matter” carved into the foreheads. The bodies were were preserved, possibly from being stored in the deep freezers.
The police radioed for back up and the other freezers were opened where 8 more bodies in similar condition were found, however one of the women was still alive. Authorities at the scene helped the woman out of the freezer and waited for paramedics to arrive.“I was kidnapped by this Black guy after I left work earlier today. We talked for while at Starbucks, where I work, before everything happened. At first he seemed pretty nice but he had this weird twitch that happened every couple of minutes. He asked if he could walk me to my car and I said yes, but that is when everything went dark. When I woke up, I was in this basement and I saw that guy I was with earlier taking saws up the stairs. I cried for help and that is when he stuffed me into a freezer where I saw dead bodies. I must have passed out from shock or something but I am happy you guys found me,” said to police by the victim.

Officer Douglas, who was searching for Thompson, found him in a crawl space in the basement. Police ran a background check on him and discovered that he was arrested during a protest for the police involved shooting death of Laquan McDonald. Thompson had no prior criminal record according to authorities.

The names of the victims have not been released. Thompson was taken into custody by police and had later tested positive for PCP which authorities believe may have lead to Thompson’s crimes.

9-Year-Old Girl Shot Dead in Ferguson; No Riots, No Protests

Black lives don’t matter when the killer is not a white cop
9-Year-Old Girl Shot Dead in Ferguson; No Riots, No Protests

by Paul Joseph Watson | August 20, 2015


A 9-year-old girl was shot dead as she did her homework in Ferguson on Tuesday night, but the same community that rioted in response to Michael Brown’s death was nowhere to be seen.

The difference? Jamyla Bolden was killed in a drive-by shooting and not by a white police officer.

“The father of Jamyla Bolden said the girl was in her bed doing homework inside a home in the 9200 block of Ellison when she was shot around 9:30 Tuesday night. Her mother was also shot in the leg,” reports KMOV 4.

Pastor Willis Johnson commented on the tragedy by emphasizing that all lives matter.

“There needs to be a reevaluation of human life: [whether] black, white, young, seasoned, whether in Ferguson, or areas considered affluent,” said Johnson. “This has to stop. This epidemic of lost life under false pretense and of no real significant reason has to change.”

While scores of people in St. Louis rioted and burned cars and buildings last night in response to the death of a man who police say pointed a gun at them during the serving of a warrant, there has been zero interest from demonstrators in the circumstances that led to Bolden’s killing.

Earlier this month, violent unrest flared in Ferguson on the anniversary of the death of Michael Brown, who was killed by Officer Darren Wilson after assaulting a store clerk, attempting to grab Wilson’s gun and charging at him.

The Black Lives Matter movement will continue to have little legitimacy until it actually addresses the primary threat to black lives – violent black criminals.

This hasn’t happened because BLM is a George Soros-funded astroturf outfit that is being used to generate nationwide racial division.

Around 93% of blacks are killed by other blacks, despite the fact that they only make up 13% of the population.

Jamyla Bolden’s tragic death again illustrates how black lives don’t matter if the killer is not a white police officer and the victim is not a gun-toting criminal.

Obama Honors Islam Before Dead Marines Killed by Islamic Terrorist; Americans Furious

White House sent out ‘happy Ramadan’ statement before commenting on Chattanooga attack
Obama Honors Islam Before Dead Marines Killed by Islamic Terrorist; Americans Furious

by Paul Joseph Watson | July 17, 2015


President Obama issued a statement yesterday urging Americans to respect the religion of Islam before he even commented on a terror attack by an Islamic extremist in Chattanooga which killed four Marines, prompting widespread anger.

The White House tweeted out a statement wishing Muslims “Eid Mubarak!” as Ramadan came to a close, adding that, “the holiday is a reminder to every American of the importance of respecting those of all faiths and beliefs.”

The statement was tweeted hours after the Chattanooga shooting and after it had been established that the culprit was 24-year-old Mohammad Youssef Abdulazeez, a Kuwaiti Muslim whose blog revealed that Islam played a central role in his ideology.

It was only after Obama had lectured Americans about respecting Islam that he paid tribute to the four dead Marines killed by an Islamic terrorist.

Reaction to the timing was brutal.

Obama has been widely criticized for his refusal to even use the term “Islamic” when referring to Islamist terror attacks, an illustration of the stifling political correctness that surrounds discussion of Islamic-inspired atrocities.

In the aftermath of the shootings, the leftist media, which immediately exploited the Charleston attack to collectively demonize all white Americans, is noticeably shy to discuss Muhammad Youssef Abdulazeez’s motivation.

Salon.com, which said that “white America must answer for the Charleston massacre,” has as its top story this morning a piece about drafting Al Gore. There are no mentions of Chattanooga until you scroll well down the page.

Donald Trump also took Obama to task during a Fox News appearance last night, slamming his fear of using the term “Islamic terrorism.”

No Rolling Mainstream Media Coverage Of Two OTHER Mass Shootings

19 injured, including children, 1 dead

by Steve Watson | InfoWars | June 22, 2015


While the nation’s mainstream media continues to obsess over the heinous Charleston shooting, two other mass shootings occurred this past weekend in Detroit and Philadelphia, but were barely covered at all, despite the fact that 19 people were shot and 1 person killed.

In Detroit Saturday night, one person was killed and 9 were wounded after a block party turned into a mass shooting:

As reported by The Detroit News, Detroit Police Chief James Craig labeled the culprit/s “urban terrorists”:

“This is a passionate plea for the neighborhood to say something and step up,” Craig said, standing a few feet from a small child’s chair and a table. “These are urban terrorists … We are fortunate we don’t have any young children recovering from a gunshot wound.”

A similar situation unfolded in Philadelphia when a block party descended into chaos.

Ten people were hospitalized, including three children.

Lieutenant John Walker told reporters that an 18-month-old girl was hit in the neck, an 11-year-old boy was shot in the leg and back and a 12-year-old-boy was struck in the chest. There were also apparently two blasts from a shotgun. It is remarkable that no one was killed.

Police believe that the gunfire was a result of ongoing feuding between two groups of people.

“Neighbors were out there, trying to do the right thing, getting together, having a good time. That quiet and peaceful event was shattered by some people who are trying to deal with something that happened a few weeks ago.”

The two shootings constituted black on black violence, and as such do not neatly fit the constant barrage of race baiting division currently being pumped out by the mainstream media.

This is why you probably didn’t hear about the incidents until now.

As Infowars has consistently highlighted, cold hard facts and figures show that there is a hugely disproportional problem of violent crime among the black American population.

You will not hear about this from the corporate media, however, which continues to project the narrative that black people are being unfairly targeted by predominantly white police officers and a racist criminal justice system in the United States continues to dominate.

Train Of Terror: 7 DEAD, 200 INJURED 100MPH AROUND CURVE

(CNN)How do all seven cars and the engine of an Amtrak train jump the rails, sending passengers, luggage, laptops and more flying?

One possibility jumped ahead of all others Wednesday: speed.

Authorities haven’t said, definitively, what caused the derailment of Amtrak Northeast Regional Train 188 in Philadelphia on Tuesday night. But the National Transportation Safety Board said that preliminary data show the train’s speed exceeded 100 mph before the derailment. That would be more than twice the 50 mph speed limit for the curve it was in.

An official with direct knowledge of the investigation earlier said that authorities were focusing on speed as a possible cause, given the angles of the wreckage and type of damage to the cars. The recorder, or “black box,” discovered at the scene could be pivotal by showing just that, former NTSB official John Goglia said.

Peter Goelz, once a top NTSB figure and now a CNN analyst, predicted that a definitive conclusion could come soon.

“I’m afraid that this train might be going too fast for this turn,” he said.

Investigators looking at speed as factor

NTSB board member Robert Sumwalt has said only that his team will examine things such as the condition of the track and the train, how the signals operated and “human performance.”

Even if it’s determined the train was going too fast, that could be due to the engineer or a mechanical issue, such as faulty brakes.

“You have a lot of questions, we have a lot of questions,” Sumwalt told reporters. “We intend to answer many of those questions in the next 24 to 48 hours.”

Midshipman, AP staffer among the 7 dead

Whatever the cause, it doesn’t change the suffering that many experienced Wednesday — be they survivors dealing with physical and emotional trauma, or relatives of the seven people killed after a few frenetic, horrific moments. Some 238 passengers and five crew members were on the train when it crashed around 9:30 p.m. Tuesday.

One of those who didn’t make it was Jim Gaines, a father of two who worked as a video software architect for The Associated Press, his company said.

His family asked for privacy, saying: “Jim was more precious to us than we can adequately express.”

Another was a U.S. Naval Academy midshipman in full uniform heading home to New York on leave from the Annapolis, Maryland, school. A family member described 20-year-old Justin Zemser as a great person and genius whose death has left his parents “beside themselves.”

Hospitals have treated more than 200 others, at least half of whom have been released. That figure included eight in critical condition among the 23 wounded passengers at Temple University Hospital — the closest trauma center to the crash site — according to Herb Cushing, the hospital’s medical director. The number of patients there was down from 25 earlier.

“Most patients’ conditions are either stable or better so that’s very very good news,” Cushing said.

He said many passengers were injured when other passengers or objects fell on them. One of those hurt is the train’s engineer, who received medical treatment and was interviewed by police, Mayor Michael Nutter said.

Authorities have not ruled out the possibility of more victims at the crash site.

“We are heartbroken by what we’ve experienced here,” Nutter said Wednesday morning. “We have not experienced anything like this in modern times.”

Amtrak train crash victims tell their stories

‘A lot of questions’

The miracle may be how some escaped relatively unscathed, given the severity of the derailment. A U.S. Department of Transportation representative told CNN that the engine and two cars were left standing upright, three cars were tipped on their sides, and one was nearly flipped over on its roof. The seventh one was “leaning hard.”

“It is amazing,” Nutter said. “I saw some people last night literally walking off that train. I don’t know how they did it.”

The Washington-New York corridor is the busiest stretch for Amtrak nationwide. Hundreds of trains, carrying thousands of passengers, have made that trip in recent years, most of them rolling seamlessly from start to finish on a roughly 3½-hour journey.

That’s what seemed to be happening Tuesday night, passenger Daniel Wetrin said.

“Everything was normal,” he said. “Then it was just chaos.”

Former U.S. Rep. Patrick Murphy tweeted he was aboard the train when it crashed. "Helping others," he said. "Pray for those injured." Later he shared this photo that showed a firefighter inside the train.

Jeremy Wladis was in the very last car, eating, when he noticed the train starting to do “funny things. And it gradually starts getting worse and worse.”

Things started flying — phones, laptops. “Then people.”

“There were two people in the luggage rack above my head. Two women, catapulted (there).”

As she read a book in the second-to-last car, Janna D’Ambrisi said, she “felt like we were going a little too fast around a curve. The car she was in started to tip, and she was thrown onto another woman.

“People started to fall on us,” she said. “I just held on to her leg and sort of bowed my head and I was kind of praying, ‘Please make it stop.’ “

Fortunately, D’Ambrisi’s train car didn’t tip over and she made it out safely. She credited many people — including one fellow passenger who guided people with his shoes off — for stepping up.

“Everyone was just trying to help the people who were injured, who had blood coming out of their head, their noses, to help them sit down in the dirt away from the rails,” she said.

‘Heavily used stretch of track’

The locomotive was built by Siemens and delivered to Amtrak in 2014 specifically for its Northeast Corridor service, a Siemens official said. That makes it fairly new, which doesn’t rule out the train’s condition playing a role in the crash but seemingly makes it less likely.

One factor that can’t be discounted is where the crash happened.

“It’s an extremely heavily used stretch of track,” transportation analyst Matthew L. Wald said of the area. “They have trouble keeping it in a state of good repair.”

The derailment was Amtrak’s ninth this year, according to the Federal Railroad Administration, and while its cause has not yet been determined, some, like Wald, are already discussing the nation’s aging rail infrastructure.

Noting President Barack Obama’s commitment to upgrading the country’s infrastructure, White House press secretary Josh Earnest said the Obama administration is “hard at work” trying to figure out what caused the crash, and that their thoughts and prayers are with the families of everyone affected.

“Along the Northeast Corridor, Amtrak is a way of life for many,” the President said later in a statement. “From Washington, D.C., and Philadelphia to New York City and Boston, this is a tragedy that touches us all.”

Mayor: Some still not accounted for

For all this work to examine and address the causes of the crash, the immediate effect was on people — whether they were on the ill-fated train, knew people who were or otherwise got caught up in the aftermath, including those stuck after Amtrak suspended service between Philadelphia and New York.

Locations for passengers and their loved ones were set up in Philadelphia and at New York’s Penn Station, where Red Cross regional CEO Josh Lockwood said about 100 people involved in the crash had come through by midmorning.

Red Cross workers offered help dealing with the arriving passengers’ physical and mental health, according to the aid group.

The fact that some have made it to their intended destinations is an obvious plus. But that wasn’t true for everyone.

Dozens remain in Philadelphia-area hospitals. The fate of some is a mystery, with Nutter noting that not everyone on Amtrak’s manifest has been accounted for. He didn’t specify a number.

The missing include Rachel Jacobs, the CEO of the Philadelphia-based technology instructional company ApprenNet. Karl Okamoto, a friend and company co-founder, said that “Rachel left a meeting with the intent to board the train. As of (9:30 a.m.), no one has heard from her.”

“Thank you for your thoughts & prayers for our CEO, Rachel Jacobs,” the company later tweeted. “We are still looking for Rachel & hope she will be with her family soon.”

Comedian’s ‘Insensitive’ Comments About Dead Dallas Jihadists Hailed As “Best Tweet In The History of Twitter”

Comedian Evan Sayet is getting a bit of blowback because of a Tweet following the death of two terrorists in Garland, TX.
Comedian’s ‘Insensitive’ Comments About Dead Dallas Jihadists Hailed As “Best Tweet In The History of Twitter”

by Mac Slavo | SHTFplan.com | May 7, 2015


Comedian Evan Sayet is getting a bit of blowback because of a Tweet following the death of two terrorists in Garland, TX. The attack on a cartoon event failed after a security guard killed the heavily armed individuals who were reportedly seeking revenge for insults against the Muslim prophet Muhammed.

The event had offered a $10,000 prize to the winning cartoon.

Sayet, a conservative, decided to make light of the situation and tweeted what is beinghailed by one user as the “best tweet in the history of twitter.”

“My favorite drawings at the Muhammad cartoon festival in Texas were the two chalk outlines out front.”

The comment has been re-tweeted over 2,500 times with most users applauding Sayet’s humor and support of free speech.

But, as you may have guessed, not everyone is laughing.

The UK Independent called the Tweet insensitive and others took to bashing the humorless remarks.

Sayet does have one regret about the Tweet:

I only regret we live in a society where a joke at the expense of would-be mass murderers is something that anyone thinks I have to defend. And, again, the Leftists have accomplished their goal. Who is really irreverent here, me in a silly tweet about would-be mass murderers or those who sought to assault that which SHOULD be revered, the First Amendment right — the HUMAN right — of free speech?

In an interview with The Daily Caller, Sayet responded to what he calls ‘newspeak’ and a culture of political correctness:

“Political Correctness — which is just a euphemism for the totalitarian concept of ‘Newspeak’ written about by Orwell in1984 — has nearly destroyed comedy in the same way that it has nearly destroyed education, journalism and the other fields where the powers-that-be are on the Left,” Sayet told TheDCNF. “Now, just as the ‘education’ system is used to indoctrinate children and ‘journalism’ is used to give credence to Leftist policies and positions, comedy (and the whole of the entertainment industry) is used to reinforce Leftist propaganda.”

Following the shooting, the terrorist group ISIS said that they have 71 “trained soldiers” in 15 U.S. states awaiting orders and warned that the next six months would bring more bloodshed.

Should that be the case, let’s hope that when Americans are met with the face of evil they will be armed and prepared to draw their own sidewalk cartoons.
