AG Lynch: Well, Yes, Omar Mateen’s Wife Disappeared Right Out From Under Our Nose
[guest post by Dana]
AG Loretta Lynch made a visit to Orlando yesterday bringing $1 million dollars in federal funds to aid in recovering costs for law enforcement responding to the recent massacre. AG Lynch also met with the families of those who lost loved ones at the hands of Mateen.
Moreover, Lynch enlightened the public on how to respond to terrorist attacks. Word has it that those who have pledged their allegiance to ISIS, and radical jihadists everywhere, were shaking in their boots as a result:
“We stand with you to say that the good in the world far outweighs the evil … and that our most effective response to terror and hatred is compassion, unity and love,
Oh, and there was also the small matter of Omar Mateen’s disappearing wife, who could be in Really Big Trouble, depending on how much she knew, and when she knew it:
“Has the shooter’s wife left the state of Florida?” a reporter asked Lynch during her press conference Tuesday.
“Right now, I don’t know exactly the answer to that,” Lynch candidly replied. “I believe she was going to travel but I do not know exactly her location now.”
Meanwhile, officials and the media are still trying to determine what may have motivated Mateen. This is just so weird, given the speed with which Lynch had figured out Dylan Roof’s motives in the horrible killings at a church in Charleston:
Yet last July, when Lynch announced federal hate crime charges against Roof, Lynch expressly emphasized his motivation.
“Several months prior to the tragic events of June 17, Roof conceived of his goal of increasing racial tensions throughout the nation and seeking retribution for perceived wrongs he believed African Americans had committed against white people,” Lynch said during a press conference. “To carry out these twin goals of fanning racial flames and exacting revenge, Roof further decided to seek out and murder African Americans because of their race.”
Lynch even acknowledged Roof sought to create as much notoriety as possible, something her press conference ostensibly helped him achieve.
“An essential element of his plan, however, was to find his victims inside of a church, specifically an African-American church,” she said, “to ensure the greatest notoriety and attention to his actions.”
If only Mateen had left just one clue behind…

But we’ll never know!
Since she is not under arrest, and there were no plans to arrest her, maybe they couldn’t do too much. Tghey could have held her or surveilled her as a material witness maybe.
I don’t know if this apparent chronology is right: It is said his wife didn’t know where he was (was she still living with the baby in Florida with him?) She called him and got him. He told her don’t you know what’s going on? – listen to the news. She texted him back that she loved him. She tried to call him several times but he wouldn’t answer the phone again.
I don’t know if that is all. But that’s only for that night in any case.
He took her along for at least one trip to a gun shop, to buy ammo, one trip to the place where he killed people and one trip to Disney World, which he also considered as a target, but decided against because of the security checkpoint. He may have discussed his ideas with her. She apparently said she tried to talk him out of it, and maybe thought she succeeded.Sammy Finkelman (7a22e4) — 6/22/2016 @ 7:00 pm
The question is not his motive – we know it – OK, maybe it is hard to tell of he was wanted to kill homosexuals or just wantd to kill Americans, and if suicide was an independent motive – but teh real question is WHEN did he decide to attempt this, and how long had he been planning this. And what should have been the key point when this should have been detected.Sammy Finkelman (7a22e4) — 6/22/2016 @ 7:04 pm
no, sammeh, the question is whether he has a handler, was she one of them, maybe it was someone he had met back in the kingdom, or the ft. pierce mosque,narciso (732bc0) — 6/22/2016 @ 7:06 pm

That’s a subset of the question I raised: WHEN did he decide to do this.
I doubt his wife was his handler. She could have been a conduit, though. maybe it was someone he had met back in the kingdom, or the ft. pierce mosque, The two trips are very suspicious, especially the fact that there were two, but they are four to five years back. This sounds something like maybe somebody being re-activated. By somebody elsemaybe, than his original handlers.Sammy Finkelman (7a22e4) — 6/22/2016 @ 7:16 pm

I believe I read that he linked himself as following in the footsteps of, not only to the Tsarnaev brothers, but also that other person from Florida who went to Syria and blew himself off in front of Syrian soldiers.
I think that part has not been released. I think that was said to the police. Very very little of his conversations with police negotiators was released – only his first 911 call. But some was reported the first day or two.Sammy Finkelman (7a22e4) — 6/22/2016 @ 7:21 pm

I can see (with Google’ help) that Moneh Abusalha is the name of the guy who was the amwerican suicide bomber in Syria, and doc brown is Bernie Sanders, and the person who called the FBI * in 2014 was a Bernie Sanders supporter in 2016, or was that somebody else who knew Omar Mateen?.

Omar Mateen had on a bracelet that night, indicating that he’d entered the club/bar before. They hand this out so somebody doesn’t have to pay admission twice. He must have been thinking very hard – he knew it would be the end of his life, and he also had to post a statement of allegiance to Gaghdadi and ISIS on Facebook (which nobody noticed till a day or so later)
He started the attack very late at night – around 2 am, near closing I read in one article, although maybe that was inaccurate.Sammy Finkelman (7a22e4) — 6/22/2016 @ 8:12 pm

The store did not take his name. This incident was reported to the FBI later, after the FBII visited the store on an unrelated matter.

“Attorney General Loretta Lynch thinks you’re stupid. Or, at least, her boss does.
According to CBS News justice reporter Paula Reid, the Department of Justice is trying to shift the national conversation surrounding the massacre at an Orlando gay club “more to hate and not just terrorism.” The layperson may see only a modest distinction between “hate” and “terrorism.” The latter is generally a violent expression of the former. For the Obama administration, there is a world of difference in the two concepts—the foremost being that the White House can’t be directly blamed for increased incidents of hate.
“I cannot tell you definitely that we will ever narrow it down to one motivation,” Lynch told reporters while expounding on a litany of reasons why a disturbed and violent individual may go on a rampage. “This was clearly an act of terror and an act of hate.” CBS appropriately headlined the attorney general’s attempt at obfuscation “a motive may never be known.” Well, the attorney general’s motives are surely known.
The DOJ sacrificed all plausible deniability that it was not trying to confuse the public about the Orlando shooter’s true motives when they thought it prudent to omit the shooter’s references to the Islamic State in a transcript of the 911 call in which he confessed to his crime.
“In the name of God the Merciful, the beneficent,” said Omar Mateen on the night of his rampage. “I pledge allegiance to Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi may God protect him [said in Arabic], on behalf of the Islamic State.”
It is an act of extraordinary hubris to dismiss what this self-styled ISIS militant has said and impose upon him some other series of motives that complicate the story. Surely, Lynch would prefer we be talking about “hate” and the supposedly elusive definition of Islamist terror rather than her announcement that the FBI has apparently lost track of Mateen’s wife, who was almost certainly an accomplice in this murder.
Lynch’s contention that Mateen’s fairly clear motive can never be truly known is not a new approach to deadly incidents of Islamist terror on U.S. soil. In November of last year, FBI Director James Comey insisted that we may never know precisely why 24-year-old Mohammad Yousuf Adbulazeez attacked and killed four U.S. Marines and one sailor that summer at an armed forces recruiting center in Chattanooga, Tennessee…”

Gays have killed nearly 660,000 Americans with AIDS alone.
In the United States alone.
That’s eighty, 80, eight-o, more Americans than have been killed by Muslim terrorists and jihadists worldwide.
Because they did not want any restrictions on getting their bareback jollies in bathhouses and in the bathrooms of places like this nightclub.
And now they’re looking to get back in the blood supply so they can kill even more.
Obama has been placating them and pandering to them and catering to them, true.
But Trump is even more gay-friendly. Sincerely and “naturally” and not because of politics.
The difference is that, this time, Obama is not totally covering up for them by shifting all the blame on Muslims.

Haiku says if you want more of the same don’t vote or vote democrat. I think he’s right that this will lead to more of the same. I think he’s wrong to imply that voting Trump will change anything. In fact, I think supporting Trump will lead to far more of this corruption, because we all know Trump has boasted of paying off politicians, busted deals, and been dishonest. He is also particularly vicious to those who oppose him, and being someone who opposes him I find that part particularly important.
Hillary’s terrible, but that doesn’t automatically mean whoever she opposes is better. Besides, would you rather the GOP oppose corruption or be led by it? That’s what this election boils down to if you think Trump and Hillary are similar.Dustin (2a8be7) — 6/23/2016 @ 4:11 am

It’s really nasty how you revel in jokes about abortion. We all recall you are not pro-life and thus you are dishonestly attempting to manipulate us. Most of us recall Trump recommended a pro-partial birth abortion judge for federal appointment, allied with Hillary while praising planned parenthood, and has called himself pro-choice before it was convenient to him to pose as a conservative for the GOP primary.
Every time you’ve complained about a bible thumper exploiting paranoia and fear over social issues, you really were itching to do so yourself, huh.

You need to tighten up the cute language thing. It’s lost its luster.
And I think you’re wrong on every single assertion in this quote. I think Trump would appoint awful judges after his inevitable shift left. Hoping for Souter level appointments would be wishful thinking. And I also think Trump has approximately zero percent chance of winning and he is not attempting to win. He is channeling the donations to himself instead of using that money to build a campaign operation. That’s odd, right? Unless he’s a hustler, which of course we know he is in every other walk of his life.

And just to be sure I don’t evade Happyfeet’s good point: Yes, Hillary will appoint awful judges. That is why it would be such a shame to run Trump against her. Can the GOP unite behind someone else?

NK – it’s sad but post #60 would have been the real life quote of an obscure Cruz supporter…which then would have been played on non-stop loop until November.

Mateen probably had an outside-of-club “coordinator” and an inside guy whose role may have encompassed placing weapons in hidden corners, holding doors shut during the escape or even as another shooter. I would start pay more attention to this Muslim Marine who supposedly saved 70 clubgoers.urbanleftbehind (0f5559) — 6/23/2016 @ 6:51 am
Apart from whatever salacious rumors regarding homosexual escapades and disappointments with Hispanic lovers, another reason to target a Latin night is because a higher percentage of that clientele maybe ex-felons (Orlando is a next stop for many ex-con hispanics from NY and IL) or under court supervision and thus maybe hesitant and or restricted from carrying firearms.
These are the idiots democrats put in government.Rev. Hoagie® (734193) — 6/23/2016 @ 6:52 am
No, he probably wins if it goes to a second ballot. Trump still can’t seal the deal. In fact, he’s practically deliberately running his campaign into the ground. Cruz was competing with a dozen republicans against the sole democrat in the race, whom the media gave so much help to because they saw this coming where Texas is a swing state and Hillary is up double digits despite being the weakest dem candidate in 30 years.Dustin (2a8be7) — 6/23/2016 @ 7:02 am
It makes more sense, that there is a coordinator, maybe someone he knew in fort pierce.narciso (732bc0) — 6/23/2016 @ 7:07 am
Major reservoir current cond from the Dept of Water Resources, Ca.gov.
All of the foothill reservoirs are full except for New Melones, which is being actively emptied for the benefit of smelt.
You know what that means? Donald Trump was right.
In the Bee article the democrats are revealed in the planning stages of emptying out Shasta again as soon as they can to supportpapertiger (c2d6da) — 6/23/2016 @ 7:16 am
a deep summer salmon runimported game fish against the seasons. Also they plan on continuing the emptying of New Melones and the other San Joaquin storage as the need arises for the smelt.
Trump sealed the deal with 1542 delegates to Cruz’s 559. And there is the fantasy you cling to: that despite winning by a 2.75-1 margin, in your mind Trump hasn’t actually “sealed the deal” and if somehow the RNC completely changes the rules to somehow disallow 300 or so delegates from being seated, THEN Teddie will ride to glorious victory. After all, he is fulfilling Biblical prophecy, right? He can not be denied!!! Of course, even that final step depend on unfaithful delegates to be faithful to HIM and not changing their minds again. Let me repeat: your fantasy depends on changing the rules and the faithfulness of people who have shown themselves to be unfaithful. Great primary strategy there.prowlerguy (fa36d8) — 6/23/2016 @ 7:21 am

Because he tried to stop House Democrats from carrying on and staging a spectacle like Ted Cruz? I mean, what?Sammy Finkelman (7a22e4) — 6/23/2016 @ 7:39 am
prowlerguy, you are arguing with people who don’t believe Trump is a Republican even though the Republican Party does, the news media does, the people who voted for him in the Republican primary do and any sane person on earth who is not in complete and total denial of reality does. They need some inner justification for turning traitor to their own party and becoming republicans4hillary!.
If you guys aren’t going to support the Republican Party then have the courage of your conviction like Patterico did and resign. Until you are out of the Party you’re no more than traitors. We have communists to fight so go join with them. You’ll fit right in.Rev. Hoagie® (734193) — 6/23/2016 @ 7:44 am
MICHELLE GOLDBERG: Trump’s Speech About Hillary Was Terrifyingly Effective. Well, she’s crooked, incompetent, and unlikable. She ought to be an easy target. Funny that no previous GOP candidate has gone after her this way

And now we have to ask the question as to why the FBI is acting so stupid.
You had a link on the first Orlando shooting thread @249
I summarized it as follows:
1. Marcus Dwayne Robertson, a black former U.S. Marine, now aged 47, and also informally known now as “Abu Taubah”, led a gang of New York bank robbers called “Ali Baba and the 40 Thieves” circa 1990, in the course of which 10 banks, private homes, and post offices were held up at gunpoint, three police officers shot, and one cop was attacked after he was injured by a homemade pipe bomb.
He was arrested in 1991.
2. He was also accused, at some point, of being a bodyguard for Sheik Omar Abdul Rahman, leader of the World Trade Center bombers – period of time unspecified in this article. I don’t find mention of him in the index of two Peter Lance books I checked.
3. He was also accused of having donated more than $300,000 in stolen funds to mosques he attended, period of time that the donations or the accusation was made unspecifed. What those mosques really were also unspecified.
4. Robertson denied both of these last two claims.
5. He cut a deal on the other charges and served four years in prison.
6. He was an FBI informant from 2004 and 2007 tasked with documenting terrorists’ plans and networks in Africa, Egypt and the United States.
7. He was arrested on a firearms charge in 2011 and pleaded guilty in January 2012.
8. Then, on March 14, 2012, based on a 2011 wiretap, in which he instructed one of his students at his online “Fundamental Islamic Knowledge Seminary,” recently re-named “Timbuktu Seminary,” to file false tax returns to obtain a tax refund to pay for travel to Mauritania for terror training, he
was charged with conspiring to defraud the IRS.
9. You may wonder why he wasn’t charged with giving material support to terrorism. My hunch is, somebody blocked it, but couldn’t stop the tax charge.
10. He was convicted of the tax charge in December 2013.
11. Prosecutors sought a sentence enhancement of 10 years on the basis of terrorism per the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act.
12. But U.S. District Judge Gregory Presnell freed Robertson in June 2015 with time served.
13. Almost everything in the case is under seal, including Robertson’s testimony. (It’s probably classified.)
14. The student, who actually went to Mauritania, pleaded guilty in 2012 to lying to authorities and conspiring to defraud the IRS and was sentenced to 10 years in federal prison.
Terrorism was not one of the charges he pleaded guilty to, if it was made.
15. Omar Mateen was another one of students.
16. While in the John E. Polk Correctional Facility in Seminole County, Florida, Robertson was kept in shackles and assigned his own guards. Whenever he was transported to court, a seven-car caravan of armed federal marshals escorted him. He was initially moved into solitary confinement after prison authorities believed he was radicalizing up to 36 of his fellow prisoners.
17. Robertson has openly and enthusiastically preached against homosexuality.
18. Law enforcement sources said Sunday that Robertson, and several associates were rounded up for questioning early Sunday, June 12, but police, as well as his attorney, refused to confirm or deny that.
Update: It’s now a liberal meme that Robertson is/was being falsely accused because they say, point 15 is wrong.
I think that could very well be wrong. He might not have been any kind of official student. But somebody leaked it.Sammy Finkelman (7a22e4) — 6/23/2016 @ 7:56 am
And what happened a few decades ago? Both parties flooded the state and doubled its population with cheap labor and easy Democrat votes.
Very sad news on the water situation, papertiger. Mostly because the sheeple just go along with it.Patricia (5fc097) — 6/23/2016 @ 8:02 am
Why would “both parties” flood the state to get more democrat votes?Rev. Hoagie® (734193) — 6/23/2016 @ 8:11 am
Hoagie, you don’t actually sound like you believe it. You sound like you’re trying to convince yourself by pounding away at the table.
Of course Trump is a democrat. He’s a Clinton donor from New York who calls for gun control whenever there’s a terrorist attack. He’s a serial bankruptcy artist. He’s built an empire on every sleazy thing he could think of. He’s a republican like Lisa Murkowski and Dede Scozzafava are.Dustin (2a8be7) — 6/23/2016 @ 8:14 am
Nope. Trump currently has zero delegates because they haven’t voted yet. Nice try though. I understand why you really want to give us the impression there is no choice, but the GOP actually can win this election. It is simply a matter of wanting to.Dustin (2a8be7) — 6/23/2016 @ 8:16 am
Hoagie, I meant the Dems wanted the voters and the Repubs wanted the cheap labor. Actually both parties wanted the cheap labor.Patricia (5fc097) — 6/23/2016 @ 8:33 am
Something really peculiar is going on.
Some of his claims in the lawsuit sound very much like implausible lies, but what may not be a lie is that he was gien aletetr of immunity.
This sounds like like Whitey Bulger than anything else. Or a triple agent.Sammy Finkelman (7a22e4) — 6/23/2016 @ 8:43 am

Only to a person in total denial like yourself, Dustin. Trump is a registered Republican, he’s running on the Republican ticket and unless some miracle occurs he will be the Republican candidate for President of the Unite States. What else would you require to be a Republican? Hell, he’s more Republican than you are at least he supports the Republican candidate. You’re a republican4hillary!.Rev.
