UPDATE: Every agenda at play here. She was in the country on some kind of marriage Visa (immigration reform) and now it seems “authorities” are saying he was in contact every now and again with someone who was being monitored for security reasons so he must have been radicalized (Homegrown Extremist Bill (shuttering the internet)). Mix in gun control and “ISIS” and every major agenda on the wishlist is represented.
Here’s what we know so far:
At a moment in time when the Obama administration desperately wants to impose some form of national “mental hygiene law” in order to regulate who has a right to bear arms and who doesn’t, we suddenly have yet another rash of these mass shootings with no motives.
Obama himself wasted no time in politicizing the event:
President Obama once again called for better background checks and new restrictions on access to guns for people who might pose a danger. “We should come together in a bipartisan basis at every level of government to make these rare as opposed to normal,” New York Times
Combine that with the fact that they also need to continue to ratchet up public anger toward ISIS™ in order to justify putting troops in harm’s way in places like Syria, Iraq and possibly Yemen…
… and you have the latest mass casualty event in California.
And the suspects, both dead (no trial, no conflicting accounts), just happen to be Muslim… with ties to Saudi Arabia.
“On Wednesday morning, Syed Rizwan Farook and his wife, Tashfeen Malik, left their 6-month-old daughter with Mr. Farook’s mother, telling her they were going out for a doctor’s appointment, a relative said.
By nightfall, it was clear that was a ruse, as the police said the couple spent the day carrying out a rampage at a social services center that killed at least 14 people before leading officers on a sprawling chase that ended with the two dead in a bloody gunfight in a suburban neighborhood.” New York Times
Once again, there is no motive.
Investigators were puzzling over the motives, and there were conflicting accounts of what led to the shooting. New York Times
Witnesses have stated Syed put his coat on the back of his chair and simply walked out of the holiday party he was attending with the co-workers he had known for years.
But that story doesn’t suit the police, so they changed it claiming he left in a huff, upset with someone over something. But even they don’t pretend to have a motive at this point.
Then they came back. Or at least, someone did. It would be impossible to positively identify the couple at the scene, since they were dressed in all black tactical gear… and wearing masks.
The attackers drove up in a dark S.U.V. to a complex of buildings run by the Inland Regional Center, spent “several minutes” shooting inside one of the buildings, and then fled, Chief Burguan said. They wore masks and body armor, he said.
“They were dressed and equipped in a way that indicates they were prepared,” he said at a news conference about three hours after the shooting. “They came prepared to do what they did, as if they were on a mission.” New York Times
The weapons were the usual suspects: hand guns and what’s called “assault” weapons. The ever present AR-15 was one of them. They also supposedly left some explosive devices behind, a total of three of them.
A bag believed to belong to the shooters was found in the conference room. Inside, investigators found three rudimentary explosive devices packed with black powder and rigged to a remote-controlled toy car. The remote for the toy car was found inside the SUV, a law enforcement official said. CNN
It’s important to note, CNN reported that though two of the guns belonged to the couple and were legally registered, the assault rifles appear to belong to someone else.
Two of the firearms have been traced back to them; they were purchased legally. Two rifles were purchased — also legally — by someone else, possibly a roommate, an official said. Authorities don’t think that person had anything to do with the attack. CNN
After the shooting (with someone else’s rifles) the suspects left and like the drive-by terrorists from Paris, where able to leave the scene without being chased by law enforcement.
As the suspects fled in a black sport utility vehicle, large parts of the city were paralyzed throughout the day… Late in the afternoon, dozens of heavily armed police officers in tactical gear descended on a residential neighborhood in pursuit of the attackers. New York Times
The shootings began around 11am. After the requisite “shelter in place” lock-down order for the entire city, someone called police with a “tip” about where they could find the suspects. It was a home in a residential district, not their home mind you.
There was supposedly a chase from that location to where the final shootout occurred.
The gunfight began around 3pm… some 4 hours after the shooting took place.
This time-line is available, here.
CNN reported that the black SUV had Utah license plates. Why would a resident of California have Utah plates?
While they were there, a black SUV with Utah plates passed by slowly, then sped up and raced off, a law enforcement official close to the investigation said.
A police cruiser pursued it. CNN
Syed Rizwan Farook reportedly had a good job and had been there for 5 years. He made $70,000 a year by some accounts.
He and Tashfeen Malik, his wife, have a new baby 6-months old. It was their first.
They supposedly met online at something called iMilap.com . That website bills itself as a dating and marriage site for people with disabilities.
Was Syed Rizwan Farook mentally disabled? If that is true, then he would certainly fall into the category of patsies targeted by the FBI, set up with a “roommate” handler and then used in a manufactured false flag event like so many we have seen before created by the FBI, now wouldn’t he?
His profile on that website says he has no disabilities, but if you read what he wrote, it certainly sounds like he has one (remember, this guy had a college degree and grew up in the States):
In a short narrative, he described himself as hailing from a “religios [sic] but modern family of 4, 2 girls 2 boys.”
“I work for county as health, safety and envorimental [sic] inspector. Enjoy working on vintage and modern cars, read religios books, enjoy eating out sometimes travel and just hang out in back yard doing target pratice with younger sister and friends.” Daily Caller
She is from Saudi Arabia. Both are Muslim. They traveled there recently. I am sure that will be the ISIS™ tie-in they need so desperately.
Reports of a third person being with them and arrested at the scene are dropping down the old memory hole, but it did happen.
The chief said a third person fled the scene and was taken into custody, but the police did not know his role, if any. A police officer was wounded in the shootout and was being treated at a hospital for non-life-threatening injuries. New York Times
Burguan also said police detained a third suspect who was seen running away, but they do not yet know if he was involved. He said one police officer sustained non-life-threatening injuries. NPR (H/T AnonX)
Handler perhaps? The person driving the vehicle while the husband and wife were drugged and in the back seat? Did he park the car there and run away leaving them inside? Was it the same guy who just happens to be the one who the assault rifles are register to? Who knows…. because authorities aren’t saying.
California just happens to have some of the strictest gun laws in the country. The strictest by some measures. When they say he bought these weapons legally, what they mean is he bought them prior to the ban on assault weapon purchasing. People who bought theirs before the new law was passed are allowed to keep them. So much for that, huh?
California has the strictest gun laws in the nation, according to the most recent report card by the Law Center to Prevent Gun Violence. It is among a handful of states that ban sale or possession of many assault weapons, including the most common models, although people who owned those firearms before they were banned are allowed to keep them. It was not known where and how the suspects obtained their weapons. New York Times
San Bernadino is an economically destitute little town. Hit hard by the designed economic collapse of 2008, the city recently filed for bankruptcy making themselves ready for the inevitable public/private privatization model and a new city “manager” to come in and chop it up for the fire-sale.
San Bernardino is a city of more than 200,000 people that has struggled in recent years as the city filed for bankruptcy, residents suffered a high rate of home foreclosures, and the commercial downtown deteriorated. The population has swelled over the past generation with immigrants from Latin America, Asia and the Middle East, drawn by proximity to Los Angeles, and housing that is affordable. New York Times
The shooting took place at a “nonprofit” agency. Privatized public services, don’t ya know.
Yes Andy, it is about access to guns, isn’t it?
Please help keep us up and running if you can.
