Call Them What You Want--They're Here

No news is not necessarily good news--sometimes it's just the media's way of saying, "We don't want to talk about it."


Back in June of this year, Brendan Tevlin, 19 years old, was stopped at a red light at the corners of Ridgeway and Northfield Avenues in West Orange, New Jersey. A car pulled up next to him and the man in the car began shooting at Brendan. He was struck 8 times and later pronounced dead.

It was initially reported to be a random shooting, even though the shooter, Mohammad Ali Brown, a Muslim, said that he shot the victim for revenge of the United States' actions in the Middle East. 

Maybe the media would have given in slightly and called it "random road rage." Brown called it a "just kill." But even that was too much for the media. The story got sucked into a black hole.

But there's more to the story: Mohammad Ali Brown killed 3 others in Seattle. He said: "My mission is vengeance . . . Iraq, Syria, Afghanistan . . . all these lives are taken every single day by America, by the government . . . so a life for a life."

The local cops wanted to pass it off as a robbery, but the only thing missing was Brendan's cell phone--his wallet and its contents were intact.

Still the media didn't report this story until Todd Pettengill told it to Fox News' Tucker Carlson.

I did some additional research and came up with more information about young Brendan.

A little bit about Brendan Tevlin: 

he completed his first year of college
was a Eucharist minister
president of the Gaelic Club and even played the bagpipes
a member of the National Honors Society in high school
made Math Honors Society
made National Spanish Honors Society
a member of the Lacrosse team
Ambassador's Club
Student Council

Brendan was a good, intelligent and caring man. He was the eldest child in the family, having 3 brothers. He was killed because he was an American and Mohammad Ali Brown was a jihadist.

We've been asked if ISIS is already here in our country. Does it really matter if ISIS is here? 

Call it whatever you want (like John Kerry gave us permission to do regarding whether or not we are at war with ISIS), but it isn't the name or the words that matter; it's the deeds. You can call a wet noodle a javelin, but try throwing it.

The funeral for Brendan Tevlin is long over. President Obama and everyone in his administration had nothing to say about this fine young man. Sadly, nobody in Obama's regime attended the funeral. 

Are you surprised?
