FBI Wants Tech to Track Social Media for Criminals and Terrorists Before They Act
 Brandi Vincent By Brandi Vincent,
Staff Correspondent
JULY 31, 2019
Proposals from interested vendors are due later this month.
The Federal Bureau of Investigations aims to acquire access to a “social media early alerting tool” that will help insiders proactively and reactively monitor how terrorist groups, foreign intelligence services, criminal organizations and other domestic threats use networking platforms to further their illegal efforts, according to a request for proposal amended this week. 

“With increased use of social media platforms by subjects of current FBI investigations and individuals that pose a threat to the United States, it is critical to obtain a service which will allow the FBI to identify relevant information from Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, and other Social media platforms in a timely fashion,” the agency said in the RFP. “Consequently, the FBI needs near real-time access to a full range of social media exchanges in order to obtain the most current information available in furtherance of its law enforcement and intelligence missions.”

Though the request was initially released on July 8, the FBI amended it this week to extend the relevant dates: The agency’s answers to vendors moved from July 25 to Aug. 7, and the proposal due date shifted from Aug. 8 to Aug. 27. Though the original proposal listed the anticipated award date as Aug. 30, it could be pushed back due to these changes. 

Still, the proposal comes at a time when society is growing accustomed to the painful reality of the weaponization of social media outlets to cause harm. Earlier this year, a mass shooter in New Zealand opened fire at two mosques killing 50 people and injuring many more—he posted a 74-page manifesto and images of his weapons online ahead of the attack and livestreamed the shooting directly on Facebook Live. And the shooter who killed three people at the Gilroy Garlic Festival in California Sunday also previously posted online about an 1890 racist manifesto, which has been deemed a “staple among neo-Nazis and white supremacists on extremist sites.”

“It is an acknowledged fact that virtually every incident and subject of FBI investigative interest has a presence online,” the bureau said in the project’s statement of objectives. “The mission critical exploitation of social media enables the Bureau to proactively detect, disrupt, and investigate an ever growing diverse range of threats.”

The FBI ultimately wants an interactive tool that can be accessed by all headquarters division and field office personnel via web browsers and through multiple devices. Interested vendors should have the capabilities to offer the agency the ability to set filters around the specific content they see, send immediate and custom alerts and notifications around “mission-relevant” incidents, have broad international reach and a strong language translation capability and allow for real-time geolocation-based monitoring that can be refined as events develop. 

And when it comes to specific persons-of-interest and suspects already involved in open investigations, the bureau wants the ability to obtain their full-scope social media profiles from across the various platforms and insights into their affiliations with various groups across the world wide web.

“Items of interest in this context are social networks, user IDs, emails, IP addresses

and telephone numbers, along with likely additional account with similar IDs or aliases,” the agency said. 

The firm-fixed-price contract will be awarded on a best-value basis and will include one base year and four one-year option periods.

Taliban attack kills 14 in Kabul, wounds more than 100
August 8, 2019 by Jerry McCormick
While the U.S. continues its efforts to work out some type of peace deal with the Taliban, deadly terror attacks continue to devastate Afghanistan.

On Wednesday, a suicide bomber in a car targeted a police station in Kabul, killing four police officers and ten civilians while injuring another 145 people.

Never-ending Violence
These cowardly attacks by the Taliban must be stopped at all costs. They are not targeting the military but rather innocent civilians.

In this bombing, women and children were among the dead and wounded. This is not an honorable enemy, but a coward that chooses to fight in the shadows with no respect at all for the life of innocents.

The Taliban immediately claimed credit for the attack, claiming the police station was a “recruitment center.”

They also stated that a “large number of soldiers and police were killed or wounded.” That, obviously, was not the case.

Peace Talks
While this carnage was taking place, the U.S. continued to meet with Taliban representatives to attempt to broker a peace deal.

Representatives for both groups are meeting in Doha, which is about 4,000 miles away from Kabul. However, many question if the Taliban can be trusted to adhere to any deal that is brokered.

Some pundits believe they will use the time of “peace” to rebuild before carrying out another 9/11-style attack.

The death toll of innocents in 2019 has already surpassed the total of 2018 in Afghanistan, which up until now, had been the deadliest year on record.

In 2018, 3,800 were killed and another 7,000 were severely wounded. So far this year, 3,812 people have lost their lives in Afghanistan terror attacks. Even amid this violence, U.S. officials are confident an agreement will be reached before September 1.

If they are correct, the deal would call for a mass withdrawal of troops, 20,000 in total, 14,000 of which are American troops.

Terror Attack in the Old City of Jerusalem by Two Muslim Kids

They are Kids!
Two Muslim kids exited the Temple Mount and ran to commit a stabbing attack on Israeli police officers. Thankfully, only one police officer was lightly wounded in the arm. The other police officers at the scene shot at the two young kids and stopped their attack. Both of the kid terrorists were killed by the police officers in stopping their stabbing attack.

What kind of society educates their children to commit “suicide” missions and stab police officers? The same society that educates its children that Jews are evil. The same educational institutions that run military training camps for their children. The same society where parents teach their little kids how to stab. It is death, genocidal culture called “palestine.

Knives on the Temple Mount?
How did these kids have knives on the Temple Mount? Because the Muslims who go up to the Temple Mount do not have to go through metal detectors. After the last Muslim terror attack on the Temple Mount Israel placed metal detectors, but the Muslim world protested and Israel removed all the security metal detectors.

Also, shouldn’t these Muslim kids treat the Temple Mount with holiness? How could they even think about committing a terror attack from their holy place?

The Muslims always desecrate the Temple Mount! Maybe the Mount really isn’t holy to them???

Medical Report
“At 18:08, a report was received in MDA’s Jerusalem Regional Dispatch regarding a wounded man next to the Iron Gate in Jerusalem’s Old City,” MDA said in a statement.

“MDA EMTs and paramedics are treating and evacuating to the hospital a man in his 30s with stab wounds while he is fully conscious and alert.”

“Upon our arrival we found an approximately 30-year-old man fully conscious at the scene,” said MDA paramedic Moshe Cordova. “He was suffering from stab wounds and we bandaged the wounds and stopped the bleeding. He was evacuated to the hospital with minor injuries. The terrorist was neutralized by security personnel.”

Trump Preparing To Name ANTIFA A “Terror” Group
President Donald Trump is finally doing what's necessary.

After years of violence and murder by the leftist organization "ANTIFA", President Trump is threatening to label it a "terrorist" organization once and for all.

Trump's threat came as the city of Portland, Oregon, prepares for violent protests by ANTIFA this Saturday. If the protests aren't kept in check, it's likely that Trump is going to step in and end it.

Trump officially made an announcement, stating:

"Major consideration is being given to naming ANTIFA an 'ORGANIZATION OF TERROR.' Portland is being watched very closely. Hopefully the Mayor will be able to properly do his job!"

Afghani wedding targeted by ISIS suicide bomber
August 18, 2019 by Jerry McCormick
The cowardly terrorists of ISIS have struck again this weekend.

An Afghani wedding was the target this time, with a suicide bomber setting off an explosion inside while parked cars loaded with explosives were detonated outside as emergency responders arrived.

Taliban Condemns the Attack
Exactly how many people were inside the wedding hall when it was attacked is unknown. However, traditionally, these weddings are very large, oftentimes with more than 500 people attending.

The attacker reportedly set off his explosive in the middle of the gathering, killing more than five dozen people and injuring close to 200.

Even more despicable is the fact the attackers had several vehicles parked outside. These vehicles were reportedly set off just as first responders were arriving at the scene.

ISIS immediately took credit for the attack, while the Taliban, currently in the midst of peace talks with the United States, condemned it.

Horrific Scene
Pictures of the attack’s aftermath flooded social media. There were literally pools of blood throughout the catering hall, with debris scattered everywhere.

Most of the windows of the catering hall had been blown out as well as many of the ceiling tiles. The families holding the celebration were obviously devastated.

The groom stated he would never be able to have joy in his life again. Both the bride and groom lost several family members and friends in the explosion.

While the Taliban condemned this attack, it carried out a similar attack against a police station only last week, killing more than a dozen people and injuring about 150 more.

Ironically, on Friday, President Donald Trump himself sent out an encouraging tweet, suggesting peace in the area would come soon. As part of that agreement, Afghanistan will not allow extremist groups who want to attack the United States in the country and the U.S. will withdraw its military personnel.

There is also reportedly the potential for a peace treaty between the Afghan government and the Taliban, but the Taliban will not negotiate with Afghanistan until U.S. troops have been definitively scheduled for withdrawal.

A teenage girl was killed and her father and brother were seriously injured in a terrorist bombing at a natural spring outside the central West Bank settlement of Dolev on Friday morning, Israeli officials said.
The father and son, 19, were taken by military helicopter to a Jerusalem hospital in serious condition, the Magen David Adom ambulance service said. The daughter, 17, was critically wounded in the attack and received treatment at the scene from civilian and military medics before being pronounced dead of her injuries.
Israel Defense Forces Spokesperson Ronen Manelis said the army considered the blast to be a “serious terror attack.”

The army said an improvised explosive device was used in the attack, but it was not immediately clear if the bomb was thrown at the family or if it had been planted earlier and was triggered when the family approached it.
Security services were reportedly tracking a car that fled the scene shortly after the explosion. “IDF soldiers are searching the area,” the military said in a statement.
Manelis said the IDF did not yet know the identities of the culprits or if they belonged to an established terror group or were acting alone.
Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, who also serves as defense minister, said he was receiving constant updates on the search effort and would meet soon with the commanders of the country’s security forces.
The troops were working to find the terrorists behind the attack as quickly as possible, under the general understanding that the more time they have to flee, the more difficult the search effort becomes.
The explosion occurred at the Bubin spring — a popular hiking spot — approximately 10 kilometers east of the city of Modiin.
“Our surroundings are full of natural springs and hiking to them is an inseparable part of residents’ lives,” Yael, a resident of Dolev, told Channel 12 news. “There is a difficult feeling.”
She said a bomb attack was “a severe escalation” the likes of which the community had not encountered “in over 20 years.”
Palestinian media reported that the IDF had begun setting up roadblocks and conducting searches in the western Ramallah area, southeast of Dolev.

“This [search] mission is being led on several fronts — the first is the intelligence front with other intelligence services, the second front is the manhunt in the field with roadblocks… The third front is the regular security effort to prevent similar events,” IDF Spokesperson Ronen Manelis said.
Another IDF spokesperson said the military was working with the Shin Bet security service and Israel Police to track the culprits.
She said additional troops were also being sent into the West Bank both to find the terrorists and to boost security to settlements in the area.
Large numbers of emergency response personnel were called to the area, including the IDF helicopter that evacuated the victims.

Taliban suicide bombers kill one U.S. soldier, multiple civilians in Afghanistan
September 7, 2019 by Jerry McCormick
As the long-running peace talks between the Taliban and the U.S. seemed to be on the verge of a breakthrough, Taliban terror attacks took more lives.

At least one American soldier, one Romanian soldier, and a number of civilians were killed in three separate suicide bombings in Afghanistan on Thursday, Newsweek reported.

A strong response from the White House was not long in coming. After hearing the news, President Donald Trump said he has suspended peace talks and canceled a scheduled secret meeting at Camp David with Taliban and Afghan leaders.

“If they cannot agree to a ceasefire during these very important peace talks, and would even kill 12 innocent people, then they probably don’t have the power to negotiate a meaningful agreement anyway,” Trump said in a series of tweets late Saturday.

The Truth About Sasha Obama
Taliban claims responsibility
The Taliban claimed responsibility for the attack, basically spitting in the face of the peace delegation working on the agreement.

In an all-out war, casualties will happen during peace negotiations. However, carrying out suicide bomber attacks and putting civilians at risk while trying to negotiate peace is completely unnecessary.

That is exactly what the Taliban is doing, though.

In Thursday’s attacks, in addition to the casualties, at least nine U.S. troops and several civilians were injured.

Difficult negotiations
In previous instances, U.S. officials have insisted that violence would not get in the way of a peace agreement being put in place. In fact, U.S. officials said on Monday the two sides have an “agreement in principle” that has not yet been finalized.

One key aspect of the deal has been a definitive schedule of U.S. troop withdrawal — the Taliban insists that it will not even begin to negotiate until that schedule is in place. Despite this, U.S. officials have said in the past that Afghanistan will not be left alone to fend for itself.

 Almost 40,000 deadly Islamic attacks since 9/11. There are no “lone wolves” in the global jihad. Sheesh.

Hisham Muhammad allegedly looked at how to adapt drones to carry weapons
Police found knives, bear claws, axes, combat clothing at his home near Bury
His cousin Faisal Ahmad, 24, is alleged at Old Bailey to have known of terror plot
Ahmad denies charge while Muhammad, 25, denies preparing acts of terrorism
By Mark Duell for MailOnline, 10 September 2019:

A 25-year-old Islamic State supporter planning a ‘lone wolf’ attack on a military site researched how to weaponise a drone to kill British soldiers, a court heard today.

Hisham Muhammad, of Whitefield, Greater Manchester, allegedly researched how to develop designs and buy products to adapt drones to carry and drop weapons.

He had visited a nearby Army barracks when police found knives, bear claws, axes, combat clothing and camouflage make-up at his home, the Old Bailey heard.

Hisham Mohammad (left) and Faisal Ahmad (right) are both on trial at the Old Bailey in London. They are pictured together in a court sketch today

Today, Muhammad and his cousin Faisal Ahmad, 24, who is said to have known of his terror plot, appeared in the dock after being arrested at their house in June last year.

Opening the prosecution case at the court in London, Anne Whyte QC said: ‘Hisham Muhammad is charged with preparing acts of terrorism.

‘He had researched and downloaded extremist material from the internet. This material glorified violence and martyrdom in the name of an extreme and ultra conservative view of the Islamic faith.

‘He had researched how small drones might be adapted to drop some sort of device from them designed to harm others. He had also obtained a variety of weapons and researched how to use knives to lethal effect.

‘He had purchased blade sharpening implements and had used them. He had also researched military locations and police equipment.

‘As you will hear, on May 23 last year, his research included expressing false interest in joining the British Army and in visiting Castle Armoury Barracks in Bury.

‘By the time of his arrest, he was planning we say some sort of physical attack using knives and other weapons, possibly involving the armed forces or the police. We will never know if he had got as far as identifying a particular target or type of individual.’

The research allegedly included visiting Castle Armoury Barracks in Bury, Greater Manchester

On Ahmad, she said: ‘It is alleged that he knew that his cousin had formed radical views and was planning a terrorist act of violence but failed, without reasonable excuse, to draw this to the attention of the police.’

The cousins, who are also brothers-in-law, both grew up in Bermuda and have wives who lived in Senegal throughout the alleged crimes.

Muhammad had lived in Gambia where Ahmad joined him after living in America, and both moved to the UK in 2013 without their wives, the trial heard.

Muhammad was arrested along with Ahmad after his landlord allegedly found Muhammad’s weapon stash at their three-bedroom terrace house share last June.

Anne Whyte QC, prosecuting, said the pair’s landlord Onkar Singh called police on June 4 last year after finding alleged terrorist material at his home he first rented to Ahmad’s mother.

Mr Singh, his friend Gavin Weston and nephew Daniel Singh called police after finding a huge stash of weapons and what appeared to be home-made bombs, jurors heard.

The Bomb Squad and police were called and Ms Whyte said two balaclavas, camouflage clothing, knife sharpening blocks, army recruitment documents, a tomahawk axe, machete, two axes on the floor, cardboard training knives and wooden sword were seized.

There were also two grip claws behind a heater, a toy AK47 assault rifle and a pizza box which had been used for stabbing practice, it was heard.

Muhammad denies one count of preparing acts of terrorism and is on trial at the Old Bailey

The QC said: ‘The diagrams and notes in the exercise book indicated that basic research and development was being undertaken aimed at releasing one or more expendable store from a commercially available model aircraft.

‘The approach taken by Hisham Muhammad in creating these images, notes and objects was variable and could be used to deliver a range of payloads.’

She added: ‘Due to the unusual and unidentified nature of some equipment in the house, the police took the precaution of ensuring the attendance of a defence explosive ordnance disposal operator, somebody called Sergeant David Podmore.

‘For example, in the front small bedroom there was the plastic bucket seen previously by Mr Singh containing two Tupperware boxes and a switch.

‘Mr Podmore also examined a variety of test tubes which contained miscellaneous items and substances including powders which tested as probably flour.’

Jurors heard he found a notebook of sketches of improvised explosive devices in the room.

Ms Whyte QC said: ‘On a shelf in the same room, they found more lollipop sticks attached together with a battery and electrical component.

‘Mr Podmore examined them and X-rayed them. Some of the component seemed to correspond to sketches found in a notebook in the property.

‘The sketches included details and notes for building or modifying a drone to drop a potential improvised explosive device or IED.

‘The first, though simple enough to look at, corresponded to sketches in the exercise book of a point impact initiation system – i.e. of a released device that is designed upon impact to ingite.

‘The other items with the various lollipop sticks attached together consisted of various lengths of lollipop sticks, with a home made hinge and an electrical servo switch which Sergeant Podmore assessed as being a possible improvised underling release mechanism for a drone.

‘When all the evidence is taken together, research into and development of adapting a drone to enable it to drop some sort of harmful device.

‘Whilst this research and development was by no means complete, you will be able to see it w
