San Bernardino terror attack PLUS gun crime expert John Lott & more

Ezra LevantRebel Commander

Terrorism has moved from Syria, to Paris to Los Angeles.

Yesterday, Muslim terrorists slaughtered 14 people in San Bernardino, California, a suburb of L.A. They injured 17 more.

For hours, officials didn’t release the names or backgrounds of the killers, so the Left deployed their usual narrative:

This is about gun control and those mean Republicans. Maybe this was some white Christian right-winger trying to shoot up an abortion clinic.

Barack Obama's statement was kind of bizarre, although that's nothing new.

Hillary Clinton called for action, as usual, but Democrats have controlled both Houses of Congress at various points during Obama's term. Why didn't they "take action" then?

And what kind of action? Murder is already illegal.

Then the killers turned out to be Muslims. You could practically hear the Media Party narrative pivoting.

We learned that the kilers' neighbours were suspicious, scared about Middle Eastern men coming and going from the home. But they said they didn’t want to tell police about it, for fear of being called racist. 14 people are dead. But, hey,  at least no-one called you racist.

So Muslim terrorists kill another 14 people and injure 17. Do you doubt for a minute that Barack Obama and Justin Trudeau plan to continue importing poorly-vetted Muslim migrants from Syria by the tens of thousands?

My guest, gun crime expert John Lott (author of More Guns, Less Crime) joins me to debunk the gun control myths that inevitably make the rounds once again after these horrific massacres.

Then Editor-at-Large Joel Pollack, who lives near the scene of the crime, describes how the White House and the media have been reporting this story, and their hope that the killers would turn out to be white and conservative.

Finally, I read some of your viewer mail. I got a lot of insults in this batch, but that's ok. That means you're interested enough in to watch!

Fantastic reporting. Love the hate mail… typical of a liberal, no actual debate or rebuttal, just insults.

The search for a “radical” islam link in the San Bernardino Sudden Jihad Syndrome (SJS) attack is a false flag.

Pure unadulterated islam is the reason for this and all the other islamic insanity blighting humanity since the 7th Century.

This SJS outburst is the only islam commanded by allah, the koran, and the mentally disturbed “prophet” of all muslims.

Updates on the San Bernardino Terror incident the Spinners can’t unspin -
  • The woman who took part in the ISIS-inspired San Bernardino massacre is linked to her native country’s most notorious radical mosque, American officials believe. The mosque is infamous for its links to violence and authorities in Pakistan are now considering taking action against its preacher, Maulana Abdul Aziz, after the disclosures by US officials.
    **The woman involved in the shootings in San Bernardino, Calif., on Wednesday was fast passed through two rounds of criminal and national security background checks as she obtained a “fiancé visa” and later a resident green card to live in the United States, federal officials said. Those checks turned up no negative information about the woman, Tashfeen Malik, a federal official said Friday. But after the F.B.I. said Friday that it was investigating the shootings as an act of terrorism — Ms. Malik pledged allegiance to the Islamic State in a Facebook post the day of the attack — officials were scouring her immigration record to see if there were any revealing details they might have missed.
  • The FBI conducted a record number of background checks driven by firearms sales for the month of November, indicating that gun sales were at an all time high for the seventh month in a row. The Bureau processed 2,243,030 checks through the National Instant Criminal Background Check System in November, an increase of 236,111 checks over the previous record set in 2012. Background checks have continually set monthly records since May.

Charleton G,
I agree with you, it was a Muslim attack. Since 9/11 all attacks on the Western World have been Muslim attacks. It is time we called a spade a spade.

New evidence shows the woman pledged to Isis , the left wing media is in a tailspin after their ignorant initial comments, one fool even said that it was the peeps of the GOP when he thought it was a white guy.

Ezra, this religiously, devout Muslim had nothing to do with Islam. Our sappy Western leaders and their self important, star-crazed talking heads will spin the PC narrative . Sit down, shut up, and celebrate diversity you Islamophobe, even if it kills you.

Before anybody knew anything, the left on their blogs, websites or in the media exercised their politically-correct gymnastics and contortions to withhold the identity and motivation of California’s terror-attack perpetrator:
- Must be right-wing Christians.
- Nothing to see here, it was just workplace violence.
- Refrain, like Obama, from calling Farook’s mass killing an act of terrorism.
- Report that ‘moderate’ (?) Muslims condemn the attack and fear an anti-Muslim backlash because of Islamophobia (if a “phobia”, then an irrational fear of Islam)
- Like Obama, another call for gun control (However as pointed out by Daniel Greenfield at “But guns don’t shoot themselves…It is not a hardware problem of guns going off at random…It is a problem of the mind. Behind each massacre, there is a mind. And it is that mind, its ideas and its beliefs , that kills.”)
A fine example of the left-wing ‘progressive’ spin is the lead headline in Salon, an Obama-Hillary supporting Internet site:
“Syed Farooq is an American: Let’s stop the Muslim vs. Christian debate and take a look at ourselves”: “His terrible deed does not spring from an unknowable foreign culture. It is violence endemic to the United States.”
Then we have an article, “Couple behind San Bernadino shooting fits profile of mass killers”
in the National Post, also carried by the Calgary Herald, presenting a new creative spin aligned with the Salon article:
“No clear answers emerged Thursday about whether a mass shooting in California, allegedly perpetrated by a couple, was an act of terrorism or the outcome of a workplace grudge. But as John Cohen, former counter-terrorism coordinator with the U.S. Department of Homeland Security, now a professor at Rutgers University in New Jersey, tells (us) law enforcement officials are seeing common threads — psychological and behavioural characteristics, as well as life experiences — in these killers”. No ties to Islam, just a psychosis created by their “life experiences”!
“And the beat goes on”, credit to Sonny & Cher:
Followed by endless proclamations after every jihad attack, that it has nothing to do with Islam, and that Muslims are the real victims. Until the next time: Launder , Spin , Rinse , Repeat .

Obama is Delusional . . . ole Hillary is a freak show and we have Justin . . . will we survive the rest of the Decade ?

Of course Obama is a reflexive liar, and in this case he is lying by omission – yes it was a workplace grudge – it was about these Islamist extremists going berserk over PORK BEING SERVED AT A WORKPLACE CHRISTMAS PARTY. Read into that fact all the multicult drivel you want.

It is also been revealed that these two were armed to the teeth with weapons it is either illegal to own/sell in Calif or to which they had no authorization to own. – real all the redundant gun control blather into that you whish.

It is also obvious that being armed the way they were (not for defensive purpose but offensive purpose with thousands of rounds of ammo illegal guns and EIDs) that they had been planning some jihadi prank like this for some time and the minor incident of pork at a party was just the excuse for something they were going to do anyway. In any event, it is the media and the government who are on trial here – this is the result of THEIR policies and narratives

I agree with Mark Legare’s quote; “Most people today care more about being politically correct then being actually correct.”

“It could be workplace violence” Really, really Obama ?And the German Panzers driving up Avenue des Champs-Élysées in 1940 were just on a sightseeing excursion , the regular tour buses were all booked.
Good God these people in the media and the White House think we are so stupid that we can’t see what is right before our eyes. OH, Can I refer to God here ? I think this site is safely to the right so it won’t get censored like the CBC blogs.

One of the best Rebel news casts to date – kudos Ezra. (please fix your Skype rebroadcast)

I have to concur with your commentary that this was not a “mass shooting” but an act of Islamic-based terror – it was done to make a political/theological statement. It was done to warn non-muslims what resistance to the caliphate will bring and to incite other Islamists to do a similar “holy act” – nothing less than this.

Any illusory commentary about white, Christian rage or gun control is purely to divert our attention from the fact these narratives are not only deeply illogical but lies as well. Incidents like San Bernardino put Prog-left policy on Islam, gun control, open borders and unvetted immigration in the spotlight and under well founded suspicion in the public eye. ALL counter-reality media commentary is damage control writ large in hopes the loud shrill corus of lies will drown out the realities on the street.

The only appropriate action after this 3rd Islamist terror attack is to root out Islamic extremists and radicalization centers and either jail or deport them. Failing that, When (and it is not a matter of “IF”) another domestic terror attack is perpetrated by unvetted immigrants, any government supporting unvetted open borders immigration should be impeached and replaced – in Canada WHEN this happens as a result of the dangerous immigration policies of Trudeau, his government should be dissolved by the GG under a war measures act and a coalition government replace them until the domestic terror war is resolved – if the carnage in these attacks is great, the politicians responsible for importing this Jihad should be made personally liable and indicted. Put the blame for Islamic terror attacks where it belongs – with the 3Ps.

I heard Seyed’s name early on and then even Fox wouldn’t mention the name for fear we would jump to the conclusion, the correct conclusion. Let the FBI and CIA worry about whether it was a terror attack, it was a Muslim attack and that is all I need to know ! California is also a left wing state referred to am the left coast.
commented 2015-12-04 07:11:13 -0500
It is so refreshing to hear someone tell it like it is without the politically correct spin. Keep up the great work Ezra!
commented 2015-12-04 07:10:09 -0500
Great show Ezra. I watch the videos and read the articles during the day. Thanks to you and your team.
commented 2015-12-04 02:10:29 -0500
Woohoo! My comment got read out by Ezra!

Hey Ezra, how about making your show go a littl bit longer? I love your show, and would like to see each episode go for at least forty minutes each.
commented 2015-12-04 02:05:54 -0500
While Ezra says that the only thing that stops one gun is another gun, the left would say “no”, one should whip out a paper explaining to the offensive gunman that there is a state law requiring one to go through an extensive and expensive process to own a gun!
commented 2015-12-04 01:44:29 -0500
It’s comical how the back and forth over whether this was an act of terrorism or an act of workplace violence. No prepares that much, plans that much, or goes to that much effort for an act of workplace violence. The FBI already consider this an act of terrorism, but mainstream media still wants to deny it. Obviously, they are high.

As for the persons being with ISIS, they certainly sympathized with them enough to be radicalized. Though the explosive devices they made were crude, and didn’t fit the instructions that ISIS has provided through their publications, there was enough effort put into their design and making to warrant the belief that they were ISIS-wannabes. Maybe they didn’t do all their homework, nor stuck to the standard plans, they were ISIS enough to go out and do this.

If there are more attacks, the Left will be falling over themselves and their narrative comes back to bite them in the ass. We’ll see what JT’s response will be.

If anyone remember the TET offensive – it was a “supposedly defeated” army that infiltrated over time into the major cities of Vietnam – then they attacked – and won.

It is happening like this today in Europe and other western countries.

History is about to repeat itself.

Thank you Ezra for another informative show. Great work and as always I look forward to watching and listening to the truth in the news.
Thank you again for a great show.
commented 2015-12-04 00:46:44 -0500
Great Show Ezra! The irony of Daniel Pipes’ statement that the 4P (police, politicians, professors & the press) are moving left and the common man moving right is that by doing this, the 4P are creating what they fear.

Obviously the San Bernardino story took priority tonight but I can’t wait to hear your review of the Ontario Auditor General’s report on the Wynne government, especially on their energy plan. This same plan is coming to a province or state near you! Except for perhaps Saskatchewan?

This is very unfortunate, and why are we not suprised?

There is a typo in my comment below – instead of writing projected – I meant to write “Protested”!

Great information Ezra, but I am considerably concerned as the refugees are landing their first flight in Canada on December 10, 2015…… and the city I live in has training facilities – so all 2000 of this provinces allotment is coming here!
This is so against my will as I have projected and petitioned but it looks as if whether we want it or not we will be forced to bare the risk!

What’s interesting to me is this 28 yr old young man born and raised in the US. Not a middle eastern transplant but native. Living with his grand mother! Made 1 trip to Saudi Arabia and has learned to make bombs and train as a soldier to kill civilians. This is not a trained ISIS killer. No folks apparently just a devout Muslim! Curious they didn’t teach me that in Sunday school! Was it his grandmother? And worst yet CAIR the Muslim activist group didn’t waste any time defending Islam and distancing themselves from them! it’s amazing to me that a whole religious community doesn’t know what’s going on in their very midst and deny what their own religious book says when they see their young people actually follow through on what it says to do.
And we’re supposed to believe its a peaceful religion that there are only a few bad apples in the bunch? While they actively close their eyes to what’s happening in their midst? Then we’re just supposed to accept their surprise and horror at the acts! My grandmother would have kicked my ass! Unbelievable! !
commented 2015-12-03 23:29:01 -0500
It should instructive to note that the Left was all over this incident as an act of “white terrorism” but stopped talking about it once it was revealed that the suspects were radicalized Islamists. They will talk about more gun control, but fail to deal with Islamist terrorism.

Worse. There is a tide that demands to blame the victims because a Christmas party “triggered” the assault. Really?

Okay. So the level of meat-headless among the Left cannot be underestimated. And they have no shame in just blurting out anything, no matter how irrational, so long as it fits their agenda. If there are more attacks (across America) right now, I suppose there will be called to end Christmas because it’s offensive. That’s how high the level of stupid is.

Be happy you are receiving so many insults. People who do that do so because logic and reality aren’t on their side. They have no other argument.
