It has been a week filled with ludicrous, over the top fear mongering as the clock ticks down on fully funding the Department of Homeland Security. First it was the alleged terrorist plot to attack the Mall of America, a danger to the public that was pimped across all five Sunday morning McNews shows by DHS boss Jeh Johnson. Then there was yet another busting of domestic ISIS “recruits” who ended up being a few pathetic losers who were entrapped by the Feds. But the granddaddy of them all just happens to conveniently pop up on the day prior to the expiration of funding DHS. Anyone who sees the way that this government operates has to be shaking their heads over the formal identification of Jihadi John, the baddest motherf*cker of them all.
The network and cable TV McNews shows and internet ‘news’ sites are filled to the brim today with tales of the hideous head chopping ISIS Übermensch tabbed as Jihadi John and his henchmen “the Beatles”. The Department of Homeland Security could not have possibly asked for a better pitchman to finally close the deal on continued funding than the British beheading machine. This may finally be what it takes for Speaker John Boehner to crack and sign onto the trickery of the splitting off Obama’s amnesty decree from the DHS funding which is a farce. The entire mainstream media is selling it hard today as though they were starving used car salesmen hustling their asses off in the waning days of the week before Christmas. In a way that is exactly what they are but a pack of whores trying to rake it in the day before the naval fleet leaves their port may be a more apropos metaphor.
As being reported by Reuters in the story entitled “’Jihadi John’ killer from Islamic State beheading videos unmasked as Londoner”:
The masked “Jihadi John” killer who fronted Islamic State beheading videos has been identified as Mohammed Emwazi, a British computer programming graduate from a well-to-do London family.
The black-clad militant brandishing a knife and speaking with an English accent was shown in videos released by Islamic State (IS) apparently decapitating hostages including Americans, Britons and Syrians.
The 26-year-old militant used the videos to threaten the West, admonish its Arab allies and taunt President Barack Obama and British Prime Minister David Cameron before petrified hostages cowering in orange jump suits.
Emwazi’s name was first disclosed by the Washington Post, citing unidentified former associates, but two U.S. government sources who spoke on condition of anonymity confirmed to Reuters that investigators believed Jihadi John was Emwazi.
Dressed entirely in black, a balaclava covering all but his eyes and the bridge of his nose and a holster under his left arm, Jihadi John became a menacing symbol of Islamic State brutality and one of the world’s most wanted men.
Hostages called him John as he and other Britons in Islamic State had been nicknamed the Beatles.
The Washington Post took credit for the journalistic coup of identifying Jihadi John in the piece “‘Jihadi John’: Islamic State killer is identified as Londoner Mohammed Emwazi”. The scoop likely had tens if not hundreds of thousands of people dependent on the Washington centered war on terror industry jumping for joy as the money spigots can’t possibly be turned off while a fiend like him is at large. If you happen to be inclined to do such things go and bet the mortgage money on a renewal of Homeland Security funding before time officially runs out on Friday.
While I don’t at all dismiss the very serious threat of Islamist fanatics with a huge scimitar to grind going on the rampage and plotting to attack America, it is also advantageous for a trillion dollar industry to have an ample supply of bogeymen to trot out whenever the need arises. Like everything else this week the timing and saturation coverage of Jihadi John has a rather pungent smell emanating from it. Kind of like money mixed with bullshit and really, who but a compete sucker can believe anything that comes out of a government that lies about everything as a first resort. The media only serves as it’s propaganda arm.
It’s the timing that gives it away which shows more than anything how much that the government and the Obama regime have come to see Americans as chumps ripe for the taking.
