ISIS supporter convicted in plot to behead Pamela Geller

Published

on

An ISIS supporter has been sentenced to 28 years behind bars for plotting to behead conservative writer Pamela Geller over her Prophet Muhammad cartoon contest in Texas in 2015.

Wright and two other men had conspired to murder Geller after the cartoon contest where two men had shot and wounded a security guard and were both subsequently killed in a shootout with police.

Judge William G. Young told the terrorist, David Wright, 28, that he did not believe that he is a monster.

“You are not a monster, yet you embraced a monstrous evil,” Young told the tearful terrorist.

Wright had told the court that he was not an ISIS supporter, but simply pretended to in order to get attention online. He also apologized to Geller, his family, and the police.

“Nothing I can say can fix the hurt I caused,” Wright said during the sentencing hearing. “I sincerely hope that I can be given the opportunity to help others avoid the mistakes I made.”

The prosecution had been seeking a life sentence while the defense requested a 16-year sentence — claiming that he never actually intended to hurt anyone.

“I said a lot of fantastical things about what I intended, where I wanted to go and where I wanted to travel, and it was never real,” Wright said during his testimony in October. “It was fantasy.”

Fox News reports that Geller had urged the judge to sentence Wright to life in prison and said it was “impossible to overstate the devastation” he brought to her life, and said “there is no assurance that anyone can give me that he would not resume his quest to kill me and my relatives.”

While Wright was believed to have been the ringleader of the assassination plot, he had also recruited his uncle who received instructions on how to do so from Junaid Hussain, an ISIS terrorist and hacker who has since been killed in an airstrike in Syria.

The third person involved in the sinister plot was Nicholas Rovinski who pleaded guilty to conspiracy in 2016. He is currently facing 15-22 years in prison. During Wright’s trial, he told jurors that Geller “deserved to be beheaded” for insulting Muhammad.

NEW: Joe Biden Bashes Incoming Trump Administration In Leaked 2016 Call to President of Ukraine

Completely inappropriate.

Published

on

Joe Biden speaks in critical and partisan terms of the incoming Trump administration in a new leaked call to the President of Ukraine unveiled Wednesday.

In the call, conducted in November 2016 a week after then-candidate Trump’s election victory, Biden bashes the incoming administration to the foreign leader, Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko. Biden assails the Trump transition team as incompetent, turning down the idea of visiting the country before the January transition before Trump is “fully briefed” on matters related to Ukraine.

In a second call, Biden asks for Poroshenko to describe his conversations with incoming President Trump, going to to speak of Trump in more dismissive terms. He describes Trump as a “dog who caught the car, and who doesn’t know what to do.” Not quite a “dog-faced pony soldier,” but definitely not an appropriate way for an outgoing vice president to describe an incoming president to a foreign leader.

A Ukrainian comedian originally released the calls, suggesting questionable operational security within the conversations of Joe Biden and Poroshenko. Biden has a lengthy history of ethical questions regarding his relationship with Ukraine, including looking the other way as his son Hunter secured an extremely lucrative position at a Ukrainian oil company without any experience whatsoever in the energy industry.

Biden himself would later go on to demand the firing of a Ukrainian prosecutor who was investigating corruption allegations against the younger Biden, a clear conflict of interest Biden merely dismissed when he spoke openly of securing the prosecutor’s firing at a Council on Foreign Relations public event.

This is a totally inappropriate way for a Vice President to speak to a foreign leader, and the public should be concerned about how Biden plans to conduct diplomacy should he be elected President.
