UP until a few years ago, the Zuckster “walked on water”, or so it would seem. In fact, it appeared as if everything he touched turned to gold — not just wealth-wise, but in the court of public opinion. No longer. And while what has become the Golem of social media, be it FB or its “new” incarnation, META, it is still the case that the so-called brainchild of FB is laughing all the way to the bank. Even so, times-are-a-changin’. It is not for nothing.

AS such, let’s take a walk-back to 2014 — to a time when this investigative journalist (in tandem with a most awesome co-author, Joe Newby) became convinced of the necessity for what became an epic and Herculean undertaking, completed in the summer of 2016.


INDEED, it was the first deep-dive book of its kind — in so far that no one dared to lay bare what, until then, had been verboten: the prying loose of a mega-sized pandora’s box of dirty secrets and trails which underpinned FB and its rattling skeletons!

ALAS, it was from the evidentiary proofs within the aforementioned trailblazer that a series of articles developed; that which both Israel National News and other well-respected, non-intimidated news sites piggybacked onto. See here, here, here and so on ….

NOT only that, since then, a recent knock-on effect has taken place, but it must be kept close to this vest. Regardless, its reverberations will be felt, sooner than later.

AND another thing: while the basis for the below at the New York Post is spot-on, that is, “Facebook aided and abetted an act of domestic terrorism,” Underwood Jacobs wrote in the legal filing…”, know that BANNED exposed both militant Islamic jihadists, as well as the linkages to anti-American domestic terrorists who are free to meet, greet, plot, and to otherwise share this and that recipe.

HOWEVER, with all due respect to the below writer, the “boogaloo movement” was mis-characterized.

AS it happens, the following excerpt can be found within this investigative journalist’s site:

“While a Google search of  the Boogaloo movement would have you believe the group is comprised of “far right,” “white supremacist” Trump supporters, the Boogaloo Bois are actually a far-left group aligned with Black Lives Matter in their disdain for Trump and Republicans….”

NOW that that is established, read on.

NEW YORK POST | By Ariel Zilber | Jan. 7, 2022

The family of a security guard who was shot and killed while protecting a federal building in Oakland is suing Facebook because the plan to carry out the shooting was allegedly hatched using the social network.

Angela Underwood Jacobs filed the complaint in California’s Alameda County Superior Court on Wednesday against Facebook’s parent company, Meta Platforms Inc.

On May 29, 2020, her brother, Dave Underwood, was hit with multiple rounds from a gun fired by an alleged anti-government extremist.

Federal prosecutors said former Air Force Sgt. Steven Carrillo shot several rounds at Underwood and his partner as they were manning their posts outside the Ronald V. Dellums Federal Building in Oakland.

Underwood was fatally wounded. His partner survived the shooting.

The feds allege that Carrillo, 32, was linked to the far-right anti-government “boogaloo” movement. Carrillo has pleaded not guilty to murder and attempted murder charges.

The family of the late Dave Underwood, who died by working as a security guard for the Federal Protective Service in Oakland on May 29, 2020, alleges that Facebook "aided and abetted and act of domestic terrorism."
The family of the late Dave Underwood, who died while working as a security guard for the Federal Protective Service in Oakland on May 29, 2020, alleges that Facebook “aided and abetted and act of domestic terrorism.”

In the legal filing, Underwood’s sister alleges that on the day before the shooting, Carrillo posted a video on a Facebook group page showing a crowd attacking two California Highway Patrol officers.

The filmed attack took place as the country was in the grip of widespread demonstrations and rioting just days after the police-involved death of George Floyd, a 46-year-old black man, in Minneapolis.

The lawsuit claims that Facebook’s algorithm enabled Robert Alvin Justus Jr. to receive an invitation to join the group, which was linked to the “boogaloo” movement.

Carrillo and Justus then began to correspond. The two men are alleged to have plotted to drive to Oakland in a van and to target a federal government agent.

Justus has pleaded not guilty to aiding and abetting murder and attempted murder.

Tory Nugent, an attorney representing Underwood’s family, accused Facebook of doing “something far different than simply facilitate a bulletin board.”

“Facebook aided and abetted an act of domestic terrorism,” Underwood Jacobs wrote in the legal filing.

“No one is holding Facebook accountable, and that’s wrong.”

Facebook did not immediately respond to comment.

The company has claimed it has taken action against far-right extremists groups by cracking down on group pages that espouse militant views.

The lawsuit will challenge longstanding protections against the legal liability shield enjoyed by tech companies like Facebook and others.

FBI (Islamic) Malfeasance Confirmed: Jihadi Investigations (Purposefully) Dropped – Carnage Ensued! Commentary By Adina Kutnicki

Image: FBI Director James Comey testifies before the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee

(FBI Director James Comey testifies before the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee after the FBI recommendation not to prosecute former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton for maintaining a private server, July 7, 2016.NBC News)

EVEN before the world became privy to the full-on corruption and malfeasance from the Comey-led FBI – in a no-holds-barred attempt to bring down a democratically-elected President Trump – the agency became infected under the Directorship of Robert Mueller, yes, the very same “independent” Special Counsel attached to the Russian dirty dossier! Credo quio absurdum…..

NOW that that is settled and out in the open, how many are aware of the very same top tier’s nexus to Islamic terror front groups, most of which operate under the RICO-like Muslim Brotherhood Mafia’s protective umbrella? If not, be prepared to spit bullets, so to speak.

(The very same Mohamed Magid, the head Imam of the Brotherhood Mafia’s ADAMS CENTER …..a mere half hour away from D.C.!)

did you KNOW obama has a sharia law czar? He is Imam Mohammed Majid of the ADAMS Center in Northern Virginia

  • As per one bullet after another, for over seven years, this site has been exposing the FBI as a jihadi “captured agency.” The dangerous nexus was cemented in 2009, soon after HUSSEIN Obama took over the helm. Regardless, it was first reported within these pages in March 2015: “FBI Hires ‘Special Agents’ From The Brotherhood’s ADAMS CENTER. Be Afraid, Very Afraid.”
  • Not only that, in July 2015, another proof of the same was aired: “FBI Monitoring Patriots, As CAIR Reports To The FBI!
  • But if the above is not enough to make your head explode, on August 5, 2015, the double game was played even further – as demonstrated by the actions of the FBI and DHS, too! Read on….
  • For if the revelations are not akin to “double dealing”, what exactly are they? But there’s more….much more. In fact, Feb. 2016 ramped up the FBI’s submission to Allah’s Muslim terrorists; similarly, April 2017 exposed that their entrenchment continues to have very dire national security knock-on effects, and, lo and behold, Sept. 2019 detailed that the FBI is still teaming up with CAIR and hasn’t ceased, despite CAIR’s supposed cut-off from the FBI in May 2009!

The Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) is not “an appropriate liaison partner” for the FBI because of evidence linking the organization and its founders to Hamas, an FBI assistant director said in a letter to a U.S. Senator.

“In light of that evidence, the FBI suspended all formal contacts between CAIR and the FBI,” Richard C. Powers, an assistant director in the FBI’s office of Congressional Affairs, wrote in a letter to Sen. Jon Kyl (R-AZ).

STILL yet, before all the dots are connected and the indictment is sealed against the Comey-led FBI (as well as his predecessor and cohort, Mueller), let it be known: This author unmasked Comey’s so-called patriotic face, that is, when “BANNED: How Facebook Enables Militant Islamic Jihad” (Aug. 31, 2016) brought to the fore the absolute knock-on effects from the FBI’s grave malfeasance due to his tainted leadership.

 AS excerpted within the AFTERWORD: Jihad In Orlando: Facebook Takes Center Stage:

…..In 2014, the FBI hauled Mateen in again over a connection with Moner Mohammad Abu-Salha, a twenty-two-year old Palestinian American. They had grown up together in the small Florida coastal town of Fort Pierce. Abu Salha went off to Syria, joined al Qaeda-linked Nusra Front and killed himself in a suicide attack by driving a massive truck bomb into a restaurant. Yet the FBI closed the file on Mateen after determining that the links between the two young Muslims did not warrant further inquiry. Compiling all the known data on the Orlando killer with the results of the FBI interviews with him would have placed him high on the list of suspects and called in for further questioning.

The oversight of United States law enforcement, intelligence, and security agencies recur each time Islamist terrorists strike. The Ramadan 2016 attack in Orlando showed that no lessons had been learned from the lapses that led to September 11, 2001.

The FBI erred gravely in closing the case over the Mateen connection with the Palestinian American suicide bomber. This explains why senior FBI officials are downplaying the importance of that connection. When he was exculpated, the federal authorities also discontinued electronic surveillance of the terrorist’s movements. So they missed his mounting extremism, his frequent attendance at a mosque led by a radical Imam, who regularly incited his flock to murder! Moreover, he kept his Security Officer’s ID, which gave him access to secure government sites. He was licensed to carry firearms…….continue reading the whole security disaster here…..  

ALAS, fast forward to the here and now via Judicial Watch, March 10, 2020

FBI Cleared Extremists Who Carried Out Deadliest U.S. Attacks Since 9/11

Nearly two decades after its well-documented transgressions culminated in the worst terrorist attack on U.S. soil, the federal law enforcement agency responsible for protecting the country against a repeat still struggles to do its job and it has cost dozens of American lives. The failures have allowed homegrown violent extremists (HVE) to carry out more than 20 attacks in the U.S. since 9/11, some of them after the agency, the FBI, closed counterterrorism investigations of the attackers.

The negligence has resulted in the death of 70 people murdered by at least six terrorists who had been under investigation by the FBI, according to a report issued recently by the Department of Justice (DOJ) Inspector General. In all the probes the FBI closed the cases quickly after ruling that the extremists presented no threat to national security. The agency examined its mishaps in the aftermath of the deadly events. “Following these attacks, the FBI conducted reviews and determined there were weaknesses in its HVE assessment processes,” the agency watchdog writes in its report. “However, we found that the FBI has not taken sufficient action to address these weaknesses.” There is more that may not have been included in the probe. The DOJ IG goes on to disclose that “in 2017, the FBI conducted an enterprise-wide review and identified potential terrorist threats that may not have been adequately assessed during calendar years (CY) 2014 through 2016, which amounted to 6 percent of the total assessments reviewed. We found that the FBI did not take adequate action on nearly 40 percent of these assessments for 18 months.”

The latest FBI transgressions resulted in some of the deadliest terrorist attacks since Islamic jihadists carried out their plots in 2001, killing thousands of innocent Americans. They include the 2009 massacre at the Fort Hood Army base in Texas, the 2013 Boston Marathon bombing, the 2016 mass shooting at an Orlando, Florida nightclub and the 2017 attack at the Fort Lauderdale Airport in south Florida. In 2011 the FBI opened a counterterrorism lead into Nidal Hasan, the perpetrator of the Fort Hood shooting, but the probe was closed five months later after agents evidently determined that Hasan did not pose a national security threat. Months later he massacred 13 people at a U.S. military post. The Orlando shooter, Omar Mateen, was also under FBI investigation before he carried out his attack for making statements that displayed his radicalized ideology. Less than a year later the probe was closed after agents ruled the information to be unfounded. Mateen killed 46 people.

Boston Marathon terrorist Tamerlan Tsarnaev was also on the FBI’s radar before his attack, but the agency decided that he and his terrorist brother, Dzhokhar Tsarvaev, did not pose a threat to national security, according to the IG report. Tamerlan Tsarnaev, the older brother who was eventually killed in a wild shootout with police, was under investigation by the FBI’s Joint Terrorism Task Force (JTTF) after Russian authorities notified the agency that he had become radicalized. The Obama administration could have deported Tamerlan Tsarnaev years before he detonated bombs at a major sporting event over a criminal arrest, according to information uncovered by Judicial Watch shortly after the bombings that killed three and injured hundreds. The government also dropped the ball on Esteban Santiago, who killed five people in a 2017 attack at the Fort Lauderdale Airport. Weeks before the rampage, the FBI closed Santiago’s probe ruling that he did not pose a threat to national security.

It seems that little has changed since 9/11. After the attacks, the FBI got blasted for missing many opportunities to stop the hijackers and failing to uncover important intelligence about them. In fact, a DOJ IG report disclosed that the FBI missed at least five opportunities before the 2001 terrorist attacks to uncover crucial intelligence about the perpetrators. The watchdog specifically blamed the FBI for not knowing that two of the 9/11 hijackers lived in the U.S. and for failing to follow up on an agent’s theory that Osama bin Laden was sending students to American flight schools. A decade and a half later, a panel created by Congress to determine if the FBI had adopted post-9/11 recommendations found that the problems persisted. In a 2015 report the 9/11 Review Commission was critical of the FBI’s Joint Terrorism Task Force’s ability to detect terror plotters before they strike and found the agency’s computer hacking investigations were lacking.

DEAR reader, as you click through the above bullet-proof evidence in these “connect the jihadi dots” (with even more embedded within this entire site) exposés, know that only the deaf, dumb, and blind, or, for that matter, the willfully ignorant, could have missed the glaring and blaring evidentiary trails.

SO, decide for yourselves: Did Comey’s (Mueller’s, too) FBI, as instructed, purposefully drop the ball vis-à-vis Islamic jihadis? Or, have they infected the top tier to such a degree that it makes it impossible to recognize friend from foe?
