Overnight Open Thread (4 Dec 2015)

Why the Colorado and San Bernardino shootings are not alike. Rampant Christian terror my ass.

we might want to remember that there's a reason Islamic radicals haven't been more successful in targeting Americans. After a highly effective day of carnage back in 2001, the United States has been more vigilant. In fact, since 1993, nine abortion-related murders have occurred in the United States- including the recent shooting in Colorado Springs - and it is nine too many. During that same time, however, Islamic terrorists have murdered more than 3,100 Americans. For more context, in this year alone more than 850 Christians have perished because of Islamic terror around the world.

BTW, the guns used in this latest attack in California were illegal. Somehow Barbara Boxer thought that meant her "sensible gun laws" worked.

Heh. How destroying the Death Star created a financial crisis across the Galactic Empire after Return Of The Jedi.

OPM Data Breach

I don't think the 20 million plus folks affected by this feel any better. The damage has been done and will last a lifetime. At first cyber meeting, China claims OPM hack is a 'criminal case'.

new claims that the attack (which lasted over a year and affected nearly 20 million people) was a criminal operation and not espionage runs counter to the usual patterns of such data thefts. None of the data stolen has yet been detected in use as part of financial fraud or other efforts criminals usually undertake to turn that data into cash.

That's because this data won't be used for those typical crimes for now. It is much more useful to China so they can attempt to flip, turn, or coerce folks to give up information that they desire. I'm sure once the three years of free coverage from the government expires and the Chinese have figured out who in that huge pool of data is useful to them, they'll dump the remaining information to criminals who will then begin to commit financial fraud and other things that you typically see them do.

What intense backlash? Was it as intense as what happened in San Bernardino? Or Chattanooga? After Paris and California attacks, U.S. muslims feel intense backlash. I guess the backlash was so intense (any examples that rise to the level of eleventy intense?) that AG Lynch has threatened to prosecute hateful rhetoric that "edges towards violence". I would hope that if the DoJ is going to violate our 1st Amendment rights that AG Lynch would at least hold Imams to the same standard.

The mosque's current Imam, Shaker Elsayed, has said in the past that the killing of a Jewish man was justified because he "adopted a position against all Arabs and Muslims." Elsayed has also defended a member of Palestinian Islamic Jihad, saying that the FBI was involved in a "war on Muslim institutions." In 2013, he called for armed jihad against the United States.

Or #BLM.
