Two Aurora cousins — one an Illinois National Guardsman — plotted to have one carry out a terrorist attack at a northern Illinois military facility while the other traveled overseas to fight with Islamic State, federal authorities alleged Thursday.

Hasan Edmonds, 22, an Army National Guard specialist, was arrested Wednesday night at Midway Airport as he attempted to fly to Cairo to wage violence on behalf of Islamic State, according to authorities.

Edmonds’ cousin, Jonas Edmonds, 29, planned to carry out the attack against a military installation after his cousin departed the country, authorities said.

The cousins made an initial appearance in federal court Thursday afternoon while shackled at the ankles and handcuffed. Both face up to 15 years in prison if convicted.

Jonas Edmonds appeared to be acting strangely in the courtroom, yawning loudly, swiveling in a chair and tugging at his beard.

His cousin, bald and wearing glasses, was subdued. Asked a question by the judge, he first nodded his head. Told he had to answer aloud, his voice was barely audible.

The federal complaint says the two met with an undercover FBI employee and presented a plan to carry out an armed attack against an undisclosed U.S. military facility in northern Illinois where Hasan Edmonds had been training, the criminal complaint alleges.

Jonas Edmonds asked the undercover FBI employee to assist in the attack and said they would use Hasan Edmonds’ uniforms and inside knowledge of how to access the installation and target officers for attack, authorities charged.

Hasan Edmonds was assigned to Golf Company of the Joliet-based 634th Brigade Support Battalion, according to the National Guard. The complaint does not name the facility the cousins allegedly plotted to attack.

In an online exchange Jan. 30, Hasan Edmonds told the undercover agent that the best way to beat the U.S. and its Army was to “break their will,” according to the complaint.

“With the U.S., no matter how many you kill they will keep coming unless the soldiers and the American public no longer have the will to fight,” Edmonds wrote, according to the complaint. “If we can break their spirits, we will win.”

A woman who identified herself as Hasan’s sister and Jonas’ cousin said by phone Thursday that the FBI showed up Wednesday night at the family home in Aurora armed with a search warrant and removed computers from the address.

Manchinique Bates, 23, repeatedly denied the charges against them were true, saying her brother and cousin never spoke of any extreme beliefs.

“To be honest, we didn’t know anything about my brother trying to travel across seas nor did we know about the supposed attacks my cousin was supposedly doing,” she said. “… They don’t go out seeking trouble. … Neither one of them come off as terrorists. They aren’t terrorists.”

Bates, who said she also had been in the National Guard, said she and her brother and other family members joined the military together as a way to travel and help the country.

“I do not feel as if my cousin or brother would ever do anything of such nature,” she said. “My brother is very, very much so … what is the word I am looking for .. he is always .. into the military .. and wanting to join the Army.”

Bates said she last saw her brother leave the house around 9:30 a.m. Wednesday without any bags.

The FBI said it began investigating Hasan Edmonds late last year, when the agency discovered that he and Jonas Edmonds allegedly had devised a plan for Hasan Edmonds to travel overseas and use his military training to fight for Islamic State.

Hasan Edmonds booked a flight to leave Chicago on Wednesday and arrive in Cairo on Thursday, with layovers in Detroit and Amsterdam.

Jonas Edmonds was to stay behind “to carry out an act of terrorism in the United States,” the complaint states.

According to the complaint, the cousins met with a second undercover agent on Monday to discuss the planned attack on the military installation where Hasan Edmonds had been training.

Jonas told the undercover worker that after his cousin left for the Middle East, he planned to purchase weapons, including AK-47 assault rifles and grenades, from a third party and then attack the facility, anticipating a “body count” of 100 to 150 people.

Hasan Edmonds said he would provide a list of officer rankings, advising they should “kill the head,” the complaint alleged.

The next day, all three drove to the installation to scout the attack, according to the complaint. Hasan Edmonds described the inside of the installation and which rooms to avoid during the assault. He also went into the facility and “retrieved a military training schedule,” which he gave to his cousin, the complaint alleged.

Lt. Col. Brad Leighton, a spokesman for the Illinois National Guard, said federal authorities informed the Guard that Edmonds was under investigation, so the Guard took “discrete but concrete steps” to ensure he didn’t have access to equipment or computers and even gave him different duties.

Leighton said Edmonds was a supply specialist who joined the Guard in August 2011. He last drilled with the Guard for a weekend this month, he said.

Both cousins were charged with conspiring to provide material support and resources to a foreign terrorist organization. That charge carries a maximum penalty of 15 years in prison and a $250,000 fine.

U.S. Magistrate Judge Sheila Finnegan set a detention hearing for Hasan Edmonds on Monday, while attorneys for Jonas Edmonds decided not to fight his detention.

The cousins attended West Aurora High School, according to district spokesman Tony Martinez. Hasan Edmonds graduated in 2011. Jonas Edmonds left the district’s system in 2004 when he was a senior.

According to the complaint, Jonas Edmonds spent time in a Georgia prison for a felony conviction.

Online court records from Cobb County in suburban Atlanta show that Jonas Edmonds was charged along with two others in the 2004 armed robbery of a McDonald’s restaurant. He pleaded guilty in 2005 and was sentenced to 15 years in prison. Records show he was released in June 2010.

“I have been reading FBI reports for 30 years and I have never seen anything like this”


The Federal Bureau of Investigation purposely distorted its latest round of annual crime statistics in an attempt to make mass shootings appear more prevalent, an expert criminologist says.

John Lott, president of the Crime Prevention Research Center, says the agency, which has strayed from bias in the past, appears to have edited the numbers for political reasons.

“The FBI put out a clearly incorrect set of numbers on public shootings shortly before the November election last year,” Lott told Fox News. “I have been reading FBI reports for 30 years and I have never seen anything like this.”

The statistics, published last September, claim that “mass shooter” incidents have seen a drastic rise between the years 2000 and 2013.

“FBI figures released last September appear to show so-called ‘mass shooter’ attacks and deaths have dramatically increased since 2000,” journalist Perry Chiaramonte writes. “The report asserted there were a total 160 such incidents in public places between 2000 and 2013, with attacks dramatically increased to 17 in 2013 from just one in 2000. The statistics also showed murders jumping to 86 from just seven over the span.”

According to Lott, all reports of standard “active shooting incidents” were combined with actual mass shooting events, making the latter appear to be vastly more frequent.

“It is one thing for the Bureau of Justice Statistics or the National Institute of Justice to put out politically biased studies, but there has always been a Chinese wall separating the FBI raw data collection from political pressures,” Lott stated.

After removing the manipulated numbers, Lott and the Crime Prevention Research Center say the revised statistics show a 50 percent decrease in the annual growth rate for homicides in mass shootings.

“The administration has obviously been willing to do a lot to push for gun control; with everything from ‘Operation Choke Point’ to ‘Fast and Furious,’ and this is just part of that push. Given the level of politicization in [the] Department of Justice, this is not particularly surprising,” Lott said.

Although a large number of Americans believe gun crime has risen due largely in part to media manipulation, in actuality, gun crime has plunged more than 75 percent in the last 20 years.


It won’t be appearing on your coffee cup

However, it completely demolishes the entire narrative underpinning the company’s ‘Race Together’ PR campaign, which tacitly supports the ‘Black Lives Matter’ movement and promotes the notion of white guilt.

That’s not to say there isn’t a problem with police brutality being indiscriminately used against black people, there obviously is, but the notion that white people in America should feel guilty about it is completely asinine.

The fact is simple; White people in the United States are five times more likely to be victims of black violence than black people are to be victims of white violence.

According to the U.S. Justice Department’s 2010 National Crime Victimization Survey (NCVS), 62,593 blacks were victims of white violence, while 320,082 whites were victims of black violence.

Claiming that there would be more black victims if their population was equal with whites also doesn’t wash, because there would also be an equal rise in the number of white victims.

This again highlights something we have repeatedly emphasized, the fact that violence within the black community is a massive problem which the ‘Black Lives Matter’ movement has failed to address. 911 calls coming from predominately black communities are also going to make violent confrontations with police more likely.

93% of black people are killed by other blacks despite them making up only 13% of the population compared to 72% whites.

Nearly half of all homicides are also committed by black people despite them representing a fraction of the population, according to DOJ and FBI figures.

However, these “racist” facts have been completely overlooked by a movement which has completely failed to do any self-analysis, preferring instead to blame systematic racism and white people in general for violence against the black community.

The mainstream media and corporate America also feels safe in supporting ‘Black Lives Matter’ because the movement fails to acknowledge the role played by white-owned entertainment companies in promoting the “thug life” ghetto culture that influences many young black men to resort to criminality and violence.

Until the ‘Black Lives Matter’ movement acknowledges these facts, it will only succeed in creating more racial tension by blaming white people for a problem which has nothing to do with them.

Both the facts in the Michael Brown shooting and the reality of black on black violence have been covered-up by the media & the political establishment in an attempt to contrive race riots and discredit genuine opposition to police brutality.

Chicago Tribune Lies About Muslim Brotherhood in Oak Brook

Screen Shot 2015-03-17 at 3.32.12 PMBY DANIEL GREENFIELD

The media is determined to continue lying and covering up Islamic violence and supremacism. This story is yet another disgraceful chapter in the media’s shameless lies and deceits.

We begin with the Chicago Tribune doing its best straight face fake journalism.

Oak Brook Police Chief James Kruger is assuring the community there are no local extremist Islamic groups, following a TV report that had Oak Brook listed on a map among 20 municipalities in the United States as a city with a “radical Muslim organization.”

Ryan Mauro is the national security analyst for the Clarion Project, a group that bills itself as “a nonprofit organization that educates the public about the threat of Islamic extremism and provides a platform for voices of moderation and tolerance within the Muslim community.”

Mauro was a guest on a segment of “The O’Reilly Factor,” during which he responded to a request to pinpoint five dangerous situations of Islamic extremists in the United States.

Ginex emailed Mauro, stating the village checked and did not find any radical Muslim organizations in the village. Ginex also asked Mauro for information on what such organization is in Oak Brook.

“We wanted to know if there was something we didn’t know about, and I asked for a correction to the story if there weren’t any organizations here,” Ginex said.

Ginex said he never received a response from Mauro.

Kruger said he never contacted anyone at the North American Islamic Trust after learning the FBI considers it to be legitimate.

“There’s a concern of protecting the civil rights of a legitimate organization,” Kruger said.

Of course the story is as real as the Muslim Brotherhood is moderate.

The Chicago Tribune article implies that the Clarion Project was evasive when questioned about NAIT, reporting that Oak Brook Village Manager Rick Ginex emailed me to inform me that the FBI found that no extremist group exists in the area.

I received no such email from Ginex nor did I receive a message from anyone identifying himself as being from the Chicago Tribune.

And it gets even better.

The irony in this reporting is that it was this same Chicago Tribune that published a blockbuster series of articles about Islamist groups in America, including the organization in question.

On September 19, 2004, the Chicago Tribune published an intriguing article titled “A Rare Look at Secretive Brotherhood in America.”

In fact, the Tribune itself writes in its 2004 expose:

“While separation of church and state is a bedrock principle of American democracy, the international Brotherhood preaches that religion and politics cannot be separated and that governments eventually should be Islamic. The group also champions martyrdom and jihad, or holy war, as a means of self-defense and has provided the philosophical underpinnings for Muslim militants worldwide.”

The March 12 article by the Tribune quotes Oak Brook Police Chief James Kruger as saying, “They [the FBI] said it is a legitimate place of business; there are no threats or other concerns in the village.”

The FBI is a branch of the Justice Department and the Justice Department designated NAIT as an unindicted co-conspirator in a trial related to the U.S. Muslim Brotherhood’s secret financing of the Hamas terrorist group


    “Yeah, eff the police.”


Hip hop artist Method Man, best known as a member of Wu Tang Clan, has said that the police who were shot in Ferguson this week brought it on themselves.

Speaking on MSNBC programming, Method Man stated that while he doesn’t believe that all cops are bad, the latest events in Ferguson have directly stemmed from institutional misconduct and racism within the Police Department there.

“You reap what you sow,” he said, adding that a recent FBI report highlighted abuses that are responsible for the backlash against police.

“I hate to say that FBI report kind of played into this. But… if that FBI report would have never come out, and the scandal, how they’re basically paying the city by giving people tickets — that is incredibly insane, but we knew this already. This is common knowledge in the hood.” the record producer added.

Method Man also spoke more generally about the cultural impact of abuse of power and police brutality

“It’s all about fear,” he stated “We’re afraid of what the police can do and the power that we think they wield… With the cops, it’s, ‘We don’t live in these neighborhoods, we only know what we see on television, or what other officers have told us, and we’re just as frightened as these people — but we have guns.’ And when you deal with human nature — human nature, just an officer dealing with things professional, he’s still a human — when that fear kicks in, you never know what could happen.”

The rapper also revealed that he has no love lost for police given his own experiences and treatment at the hands of law enforcement as a teenager.

“I’m looking at my situation of being searched at 13… Yeah, eff the police,” he declared, citing the well known NWA song.

US Muslim gave Islamic State jihadis US military uniforms, combat boots, tactical gear, firearms accessories, and thousands in cash

An American Muslim convert warned us, “We are indeed here in America,” he said. “We’re in each and every state. We’re here in Ohio. We’re more organized than you think.”

He said, “talking about how we should raise Jihad in America. We should form groups and alliances with the Islamic State. When I say groups, I mean what you would call sleeper cells,” said Cornell.

But no one talks about this, and when we do, we are smeared as “racist-islamophobic-anti-Muslim-bigots.”

US Muslim gave Islamic State jihadis US military uniforms, combat boots, tactical gear, firearms accessories, and thousands in cash,” (thanks to Robert Spencer)

Nihad Rosic is “originally from Bosnia, and moved to the United States where he’s worked as a truck driver.” Oh dear, this is inconvenient for the mainstream analysts, who have been telling us for years that all (all!) the Muslims in Bosnia are America-loving Western-oriented moderates. What’s more, it appears that Nihad Rosic had…a job.

An update on this story. “UPDATE: Suspect identified in Indiana’s ISIS-related terror arrest,” by Matt McCutcheon and Bob Segall, WTHR, February 26, 2015:

The Federal Bureau of Investigation confirms it arrested a man in central Indiana on Feb. 6, 2015, for allegedly helping ISIS terrorists.

13 Investigates first broke the story. We now have new details explaining how FBI agents caught their man.

His name is Nihad Rosic. He’s originally from Bosnia, and moved to the United States where he’s worked as a truck driver. But federal agents say he lives a double life and that he’s part of a group that’s been directly supporting ISIS terrorists in the Middle East.

As bloody battles rage on in Syria, the FBI and federal prosecutors have been working behind the scenes here in the United States.

Three weeks ago in St. Louis, prosecutors announced the indictment of six Bosnian nationals for conspiring to help ISIS terrorists. But what prosecutors did not announce is that one of the suspects was arrested in central Indiana.

13 Investigates has learned federal agents have been tracking Nihad Rosic for years. The FBI tells Eyewitness News that the truck driver was making a routine delivery off of Ronald Reagan Parkway in Plainfield when they made their arrest. It happened about an hour before Air Force One and President Barak [sic] Obama landed nearby.

The timing appears to be a coincidence. What is not coincidence, according to the indictment, is the relationship between Rosic and a brutal terrorist group.

The indictment says Rosic and other defendants provided ISIS fighters with US military uniforms, combat boots, tactical gear, and firearms accessories such as range finders and rifle scopes. They also wired thousands of dollars in cash, all in an elaborate conspiracy to commit “murder and maiming” in Syria and Iraq.

Investigators obtained records from Western Union and Paypal, and prosecutors say they show the transfer of money from the suspects in the Midwest to known terrorists in the Middle East. Federal agents also monitored phone calls, emails and Facebook to infiltrate their communication.

According to the indictment, members of the conspiracy used coded language, referring to each other as “lions.” They called Syria “the beach.” And weapons were known as “actions.”

Prosecutors say Rosic planned to fly to Syria to join ISIS on the battlefield….
