Leading Putin Critic, Shot And Killed In Moscow

Shot 4 times...

Boris Nemtsov  "Was walking with a female acquaintance  when a vehicle drove up and unidentified assailants shot him dead"

Fox News
A top political nemesis of President Vladimir Putin was shot and killed early Saturday in central Moscow, Russian police said, one day before an opposition rally was scheduled to take place.

Boris Nemtsov, 55, a former deputy prime minister, was shot four times from a passing car as he was walking on a bridge just outside the Kremlin. The Kremlin said that Putin will personally oversee the investigation into his death.

The shooting potentially could create a political crisis in Russia, regardless of the motive or who was behind the shooting.

A sharp critic of Putin, Nemtsov assailed the government's inefficiency, rampant corruption and the Kremlin's policy on Ukraine, which has strained Russia-West ties to a degree unseen since Cold War times. The Washington Post reported that Nemtsov had angered Putin's government two years ago when he charged that billions of dollars had been stolen from funds designated for the 2014 Winter Olympics in Sochi, his hometown.

He served as a deputy prime minister in the 1990s, and once was seen as a possible successor to Boris Yeltsin, Russia's first elected president.

Interior Ministry spokeswoman Yelena Alexeyeva told reporters on the scene that Nemtsov was walking with a female acquaintance, a Ukrainian citizen, when a vehicle drove up and unidentified assailants shot him dead. The woman wasn't hurt

Scott Walker at CPAC: If I Can Take On 100,000 Protesters, I Can Take on ISIS

Scott Walker at the CPAC Q&A gets a question on 'how he would deal with ISIS'
Look for the lib media to talk about this for at least a week or 2

DNC is already out with a response to Walker's comments--
In response to Scott Walker’s comments at CPAC comparing ISIS to union members, DNC Communications Director Mo Elleithee released the following statement:

“If Scott Walker thinks that it’s appropriate to compare working people speaking up for their rights to brutal terrorists, then he is even less qualified to be president than I thought. Maybe he should go back to punting.”


ISIS Fighters Ransack Ancient Museum in Mosul, Destroying Priceless Statues, Artifacts (VIDEO)

Islamic State terrorists have destroyed a priceless collection of statues and sculptures dating back to the 7th century B.C., inflicting what an archaeologist described as incalculable damage to a piece of shared human history



Why would ISIS destroy an ancient museum?

This ISIS militant in the video (below)  says the statues are what he calls 'idols' from the time of the Assyrians and the Arcadians, a time -- he says -- when people worshipped something other than god.

He says the Prophet Muhammad 'ordered' Muslims to get rid of statues and relics.

Watch the video- So, I guess this also has nothing to do with Islam either, right?

'Jihadi John’ Identified as Mohammed Emwazi From London

BBC says the Kuwaiti-born British man in his mid-20s from West London is key suspect in killings of Western journalist and his aid workers

Times of Israel
The Islamic State fighter known as “Jihadi John,” who has been seen in videos of showing the beheadings of Western hostages, has been recognized by the BBC as Mohammed Emwazi, a Kuwaiti-born British man in his mid-20s from West London.

According to the BBC, Emwazi was known to UK security services, but his name has been withheld from the public for operational reasons.

Last August, Emwazi, sporting a black robe and speaking with a thick British accent, was featured in an Islamic State video in which he apparently killed American journalist James Foley. He was later believed to have been seen in the videos of the beheadings of US journalist Steven Sotloff, British aid worker David Haines, British taxi driver Alan Henning, and American aid worker Abdul-Rahman Kassig, also known as Peter, the BBC reported.

Emwazi was a “person of interest” to the British MI5 intelligence agency at least since 2011, as he had been discussed in semi-secret court cases relating to extremism overseas and in the UK, the BBC reported. He had been previously described as a member of a network involving at least 13 other British extremists

Surprise:  'Jihadi John' comes from a wealthy London family

3 Brooklyn Men Arrested For Attempting to Travel to Istanbul to Join ISIS

State Dept. mouthpiece Marie Harf would probably blame this on the lack of jobs in New York.

The 3 men, arrested today by FBI agents,  discussed launching terror attacks in the U.S. if they were unable to join ISIS overseas

NEW YORK – FBI agents in Brooklyn have arrested three men for allegedly attempting to travel abroad to join the terror group ISIS.

The trio had discussed launching attacks domestically if they were unable to travel to join them, authorities said. 
Abdurasul Hasanovich Juraboev, Akhror Saidakhmetov and Abror Habibov face charges of conspiracy to provide material support to terrorists.

Back in the summer of 2014, Juraboev, 24, and Saidakhmetov, 19, had expressed support online for the establishment of an Islamic caliphate in Iraq in Syria, authorities said.

They had devised a plan to travel to Turkey and then Syria to wage jihad, authorities said.

Saidakhmetov was arrested early Wednesday morning at John F. Kennedy International Airport as he was about to board a flight to Istanbul.

Saidakhmetov allegedly plotted to buy a machine gun and kill police officers and FBI agents if he was unable to join ISIS in Syria, authorities said.
