JUST IN: Suspect Identified In Ohio 4th Of July Terror Plot And It’s Not Over Yet

Published

on

This morning, Cleveland, Ohio was the target of a thwarted serious terror plot targeting the July 4th Independence Day parade.  The FBI has identified 48-year-old Demetrius Nathaniel Pitts also known as Abdur Raheem Rafeeq after his radicalization here at home to a militant branch of radical Islam.  Pitts was taken into custody Sunday around 10 a.m. and he has been charged by a complaint filed in federal court of “attempted material support of a foreign terrorist organization for allegedly planning an Independence Day attack.”

United States Attorney Justin Herdman stated of Pitts – “He talked about wanting to target people watching fireworks over downtown Cleveland.”

Pitts is known as an Al Qaeda sympathizer who expressed his desire to recruit others to kill as many Americans as possible, especially military personnel and their families, as well as federal and local law enforcement agents.

The FBI reports they have been monitoring his activities since 2017 after a series of social media posts and statements indicating his allegiance to the terrorist organization,  as well as “violent intentions” toward US armed forces and local law enforcement, including a desire to mutilate their bodies. He also spoke of fantasies he had of beheading President Donald Trump according to the 33-page affidavit filed with the courts just prior to the Pitts’ arrest.

Authorities reported Pitts has been under investigation since 2017 and during the course of that investigation, he made some “disturbing” Facebook posts with comments urging other Muslims to learn how to shoot guns and throw hand grenades. Authorities stated they had begun to pay closer attention to Pitts back in 2015 stemming from “disturbing” messages he sent to a local TV program.

After more alarming Facebook comments in 2017 in which Pitts expressed an interest in joining al Qaeda, training overseas and returning to the U.S. to stage an attack the FBI opened an active investigation, according to the complaint.

“Additional conversations with extremely concerning statements of intentions made by Pitts are specified in the federal complaint,” said Stephen Anthony, FBI Special Agent in Charge. “They include topics such as hatred for the military, wanting to chop off heads and hands and disposing of bodies.”

“His Facebook posts, quite frankly, were disturbing,” Anthony told reporters during a press conference. ”They included verbiage that had words to the effect: ‘We, as Muslims, need to start training like this every day, we to know how to shoot guns, throw hand grenades, hand-to-hand combat.’”

Pitts will make his first court appearance at 2 p.m. Monday. If convicted, he faces up to 20 years in prison.

In May, Pitts relocated from a town outside Cincinnati to the greater Cleveland area and continued to express his radical ideology and desire to commit violence against the United States, Anthony said. During a meeting with an undercover agent last week, Anthony said, Pitts plainly laid out his intentions.

According to an undercover FBI agent – Last week, Pitts stated to the agent – “I did tell myself that their holiday is coming up. The Fourth of July. Independence Day. What would hit them in the core? Blow up. Have a bomb. Blow up at the Fourth of July parade.”

The undercover agent also states Pitts confided in him of his plans to pack a van full of explosives in a series of recorded conversations. Those conversations detail how Pitts fantasized about beheading President Donald Trump, attacking U.S. soldiers, and sowing terror in Cleveland on Independence Day.

An FBI informant provided a bus pass to Pitts so he could travel to downtown Cleveland to perform reconnaissance and take pictures of potential bombing targets. An affidavit filed with the court reveals that Pitts is alleged to have pledged his allegiance to terrorist leaders in videos made with a cell phone. The video was also provided by the FBI along with his passcode – 0704 – the date of the now thwarted attack.

Pitts also told undercover agents he wished to do additional reconnaissance in Philadelphia stating he knew the area well since he used to live there.

The complaint states – “Pitts indicated it was his ‘job’ to ‘go look at the base of the ground,’ and that it was up to other ‘brothers’ to complete the other parts of the job.”

“I don’t wanna meet all the Brothers,” he told the undercover FBI employee at one point.

“Now what about the detonator guy?” the FBI employee asked.

“Now I don’t even wanna meet him,” Pitts said. “He has nothing to do with me.

“The only thing I’m going to be responsible for is going to look at the spot, to scope out the scenery,” he added.

NBC News reports

“There’s no indication that Pitts could have carried off any attack on his own. The criminal complaint suggests he viewed his role as planning and surveillance and did not want to be involved in obtaining or building any explosives.

Pitts served time in Ohio for a 1989 robbery and pleaded guilty to theft in Ohio in 2007. In 2016, the state of Pennsylvania had asked Ohio to extradite Pitts as a fugitive from charges of assault, robbery and theft.”

White House Guests KNEEL During National Anthem, Trump Makes Them Immediately Regret It

The Marine Corp band in their bright red uniforms were on the south balcony of the White House on a bright, sunny Tuesday in Washington, DC. The Army Chorus sang, beginning the event with ‘America the Beautiful’ and concluded with ‘God Bless America’. At least two people who were guests at President Trump’s Celebration of America event yesterday knelt, showing exactly why so many Americans are ticked over the National Anthem controversy.

The event replaced a celebration at the White House in honor of the Super Bowl win for the Philadelphia Eagles. These two disrespectful idiots took a knee as the “Star Spangled Banner” rang out across the South Lawn of the White House. Simply disgraceful. These aren’t social justice warriors… these are unpatriotic jerks.

A video was posted to Twitter by a reporter for SVT, the Swedish national public TV broadcaster. It shows a man, wearing a light blue button down, kneeling as the National Anthem played, before clapping and ultimately coming to his feet after the song finished. I guess he thought that was his five minutes of fame or something.

What it really amounted to was making a fool out of himself internationally. President Trump showcases all of these liberal dimwits for what they are… America-hating, radical leftists who are far more interested in hating our brave police officers and our country than they are in respecting America and taking national pride in their country and President.

When President Trump took the podium, he blew his audience away with his love for our country, military, police, flag and the National Anthem. He made every single person who disrespects them like this look like the small, craven liberals that they really are. The man, who did not identify himself, left the event immediately after the United States Marine Band performed the anthem, according to a news anchor for TV2 Denmark. Gee, crawling away with his tail between his legs like the lowly cur he his. Guess he couldn’t stand patriotism after he showed how much he hates his own country.

There was a second man who was pictured kneeling as well. That was posted to Twitter by a CNN White House producer. He was wearing a light blue checkered shirt and had a little American flag. This guy was right up front. He was also apparently the same person who reportedly heckled Trump. That guy was roundly booed by everyone around him. CNN’s analyst April Ryan posted false news on Twitter yesterday claiming people were booing Trump when it was the heckler they went after. She eventually retracted what she said after her own colleagues called her out on the lie. “Stop hiding behind the armed services and the National Anthem,” the guy yelled to a chorus of boos, according to the Daily Mail. “Let’s hear it for the Eagles.” “Go home,” one person shouted at the heckler.

The President didn’t engage the heckler, but looked in his direction and pursed his lips. He looked like he wanted to smack him. Right there with ya.

President Trump disinvited the Philadelphia Eagles to the White House after they at first said they had more than 70 players coming to the People’s House to celebrate. By this week, that number had dropped to less than ten and then to only one player. They kept trying to change the date to one where President Trump would be out of the country. I don’t blame the President in the least for canceling the visit. That was totally appropriate. If you insist on being ungrateful and insulting a sitting President of the United States, then you don’t deserve the honor of going to the White House period.

Trump claimed on Monday that the team disagreed “with their President because he insists that they proudly stand for the National Anthem, hand on heart, in honor of the great men and women of our military and the people of our country.” Eagles players denied that accusation, pointing out that no one on the team knelt for the anthem during last season. But that has nothing to do with how each individual on the team states his beliefs and shows his disrespect for President Trump.

White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders accused the team of a “political stunt” just minutes before Tuesday’s alternative event began, claiming the players had chosen to “abandon their fans.” That’s exactly what they did. “If this wasn’t a political stunt by the Eagles franchise then they wouldn’t have committed to attend the event and then backed out,” she said in her Tuesday press briefing. “And if it wasn’t a political stunt, they wouldn’t have attempted to reschedule the visit while the President was overseas.”

Trump was brief in his remarks and only spoke for about four minutes. He began by explaining why it’s an issue of patriotism for Americans to stand for the National Anthem. “We love our flag and stand for our National Anthem,” Trump said to great applause from the crowd on the South Lawn of the White House. “We stand to honor our military and to honor country and to honor the fallen heroes who never made it back home.” Yes, we do… and those that don’t can take a hike.

Melania Unveils This Year’s White House Christmas Decorations That Libs Are SURE To Hate

Melania Trump’s first year in office was marked by immense criticism of our incredible first lady, who in the eyes of the Trump family’s numerous detractors, Melania could do nothing right, or at least as well as her predecessor, Michelle Obama. This included her full Christmas decor plan, which was stunning in silver and white, and a beautiful modern take on the same tired style that Michelle un-creatively came up with.

This year’s decorations will likely be no different, if not worse.

Last year, liberals claimed she decked the halls in depression and gloom, likening it to looking more like a haunted house than a holiday home. So, what will they say about this year’s new look?

Chicks On The Right reports:

FLOTUS doesn’t just slay on the fashion front. Her decorating skills are off the charts. (Yes, yes– I know she didn’t do this by herself, but if you really believe she didn’t have a say, you’re nuuuuuuuuuuuuts.)

ANYWHO. She finally unveiled this year’s White House Christmas decorations, and they’re GORGEOUS.

You have no idea how much I want to stroll through those halls of beautifully decorated trees. Oh well. I’ll have to settle for the aisles of Hobby Lobby.

It all looks great. I’m obsessed. TY, that is all.
