Time to Remember the Forgotten Jihadist Beheader in Oklahoma Now Cleared for Execution


Prison converted Muslim Alton Nolen after asked if regretted beheading Colleen Hufford at an Oklahoma food plant:

 

“There wasn’t nothing but a trial for me. I passed it because, like I said, I felt oppressed. I knew for sure that, if I was to die right then, I was going to heaven.” He added: “I feel, you know, you know what I’m saying, if I was to die in five or 10 minutes, I’m going to heaven. That’s all that matters to me.”

 

This scum of a Muslim had his last appeal to avoid the death penalty rejected by SCOTUS on 10/1/18. Clearing the way NOT for him to go to a Muslim heaven of carnal pleasures with eternal virgin Houri hookers, but to suffer in the fires of hell where all unrepentant murderers are headed.

 

Revelation 21: 6-8 AMP:

 

And He said to me, “It is done. I am the Alpha and the Omega, the Beginning and the End. To the one who thirsts I will give [water] from the fountain of the water of life without cost. [a]He who overcomes [the world by adhering faithfully to Christ Jesus as Lord and Savior] will inherit these things, and I will be his God and he will be My son. But as for the cowards and unbelieving and abominable [who are devoid of character and personal integrity and practice or tolerate immorality], and murderers, and sorcerers [with intoxicating drugs], and idolaters and occultists [who practice and teach false religions], and all the liars [who knowingly deceive and twist truth], their part will be in the lake that blazes with fire and brimstone, which is the second death.”

Time to Remember the Forgotten Jihadist Beheader in Oklahoma Now Cleared for Execution

THE SEPTEMBER 24, 2014 ATTACK IN OKLAHOMA IS SOMEWHAT NOTABLE IN THE ANNALS OF MANY OFFICIALLY UNCALLED TERRORIST STRIKES IN THAT HE EMULATED A FAVORITE ISIS DEATH TACTIC NO DOUBT LEARNED ONLINE. 

 

This fall, the U.S. Supreme Court essentially cemented the execution of America’s least known Islamic terrorist. Jihadist convert Alton Nolen is now set to be put to death in Oklahoma, likely by nitrogen gas inhalation.

The Supreme Court’s October 1, 2018 rejection of Nolen’s final death penalty appeal went unremarked upon by any news media and so, partly as a result, even I missed it. But the Nolen case is very much worth remembering along with all religiously motivated attacks that occur on U.S. soil, if not just for the victims and their survivors but for lessons that can and must be learned.

The September 24, 2014 attack in Oklahoma is somewhat notable in the annals of many officially uncalled terrorist strikes in that he emulated a favorite ISIS death tactic no doubt learned online: he fully beheaded a co-worker – the very beloved wife, mother and grandmother Colleen Hufford – inside the Moore, Oklahoma food processing plant where they both worked. Shouting “Alluah Akbar” throughout the attack, Nolen was using the same oversized butcher knife on the neck of a second co-worker, Tracy Johnson, when the company’s chief operations officer, a reserve law enforcement officer named Mark Vaughn, burst in with an AR-15 rifle. He shot and wounded Nolen as Nolen disengaged from his second victim and charged at him with the bloody knife.

 

Such an attack must feel a particular horror to its witnesses and, when Nolen is finally put to death, one should keep in mind what Colleen Hufford must have experienced in her last moments.

Rather than to charge this attack under federal terrorism statutes and ascribe a religious motive to it, President Obama’s U.S. Department of Justice let the local district attorney charge Nolen under state murder statues (and as an assault and battery against survivor Traci Johnson). The whole disgusting affair was quickly forgotten by the rest of the nation, government and all but those involved and some locals.

But make no mistake; This was a jihadist attack on American soil, motivated by interpretations of the Quran that are commonly preached in Wahabi mosques and cited by killers across the globe.

Some have argued that earmarking attacks aggrandize and gratify the killers. There is something to be said for that. But the Nolen attack – as well as events such as the Supreme Court’s rejection of his appeal and, one day, the execution itself – warrants our full national attention and should be properly memorialized until all related matters are finally resolved, not least for any comfort doing so can still bring the victim, survivors, and witnesses. Government acknowledgement of a repetitive motivation for killings like this, and media treatment of it, can encourage the nation to comfort those who were there and help them close the emotionally important loop of knowing WHY loved ones and innocents died, who did it and for what Cause.

But calling out Islamist religious motivation for murder portends practical benefits too. It can open the throttle on investigations that identify co-conspirators and foreign connections. Public acknowledgement and remembrance can spur suspicious activity reporting from the general public, which can roll up other cocked and loaded extremists before they too kill.

Also importantly, identification of repetitive Islamist motivation for violent acts helps homeland security authorities look inward to determine if intelligence failures occurred. Homeland security professionals learn from those what not to repeat and how to fix broken processes, to reduce the chances of future law enforcement intelligence failures, which invariably lead to funeral processions.

The Obama administration decided not to involve itself in a prosecution under federal terrorism statutes, even though Nolen, a prison convert to Islam, had filled his Facebook page with hideous ISIS propaganda and openly praised the death cult’s rise to global prominence through constant blood-letting. Nolen had just been suspended after co-workers rejected his Islamist proselytizing and demands for religious accommodations at the company, Vaughan Foods. This gave those already predisposed to downplay Islamist motivations for attacks the excuse needed to suggest workplace violence and mental illness was somehow at play, instead.

Proof of Motivation Overflowed at Trial

The 2017 trial, which received only some highly localized Oklahoma TV news coverage, decisively showed this was neither mental illness nor workplace tension drove Nolen to do what he did.

Taped police interviews of Nolen and other evidence showed Nolen was motivated by Quranic scripture and the very same well-worn extremist ideology we have seen cited for attacks across the globe, to include the 9/11 attacks. Nolen has proven unrepentant.

On September 29, 2017, a jury rejected defense arguments that Nolen was insane after hearing the evidence.

Right after the attack, for instance, police asked a very calm and collected Nolen if anyone told him to behead unbelievers. He responded that the Qur’an gave him the idea. (Qur’an 47:4 states that “When you meet the unbelievers, strike their necks.) Nolen answered: “Uh, no. I read the Qur’an. Like I say, the Qur’an is easy to understand. No one guides me but Allah.”

When asked why he beheaded Hufford, he answered: “I just feel like…I did what I needed to do. What Allah says in the Qur’an to do. Oppressors don’t need to be here. You know the Muslim is somebody who submits their will to Allah…Whatever he wants done, that’s what we do…And you know he wants us to get the oppressors out of this place.”

When asked if he regretted murdering Hufford, Nolen answered: “There wasn’t nothing but a trial for me. I passed it because, like I said, I felt oppressed. I knew for sure that, if I was to die right then, I was going to heaven.” He added: “I feel, you know, you know what I’m saying, if I was to die in five or 10 minutes, I’m going to heaven. That’s all that matters to me.”

Nolen also confirmed that he screamed “Allahu akbar” as he beheaded Hufford.

Traci Johnson testified that she ran into the next room after hearing screaming and saw Nolan standing over Hufford with a bloody knife. “When I saw the defendant, I was frozen. I couldn’t move. And I saw the knife with the blood on the knife, and he made a mad dash toward me and pushed me up against the wall and held me up with his forearm against the wall and just started splicing my neck. He was just going back and forth like he was just cutting a piece of meat.”

The hero of this tragedy is Mark Vaughan, then COO of Vaughan Foods and an Oklahoma County Sheriff’s Office Reserve Deputy. When the call came that a knife attack was underway, Vaughan suited up with his weapon, ammo and first aid on a vest. Vaughan testified that he and another employee entered the building where the attack was underway and saw Nolen on top of Johnson. He testified that he called for Nolen to stop. Nolen jumped up, ran around a corner and charged Vaughan at full speed. Vaughan said he fired three rounds.

Nolen leaned against a wall and fell to the ground. Vaughan then held Nolen at bay until police arrived and took the suspect away.

Execution Date Unclear But Deserves Right-Of-Passage National Acknowledgement and Coverage

Although Nolen’s execution warrants national notice, no solid date was readily available. Oklahoma has been caught up in political wrangling with death penalty opponents and shut down the state’s supply of lethal injection drugs. Most of the state’s executions are awaiting a resolution over state plans to start using nitrogen gas. Earlier this year, the state announced it was working to develop a new execution protocol making nitrogen hypoxia the preferred method.

When this is all sorted out, politically and legally, Nolen’s turn will come and bring the state’s only possible final resolution to this episode so we can all properly move on. And when that resolution is at hand, I hope somehow the world finds out about it.

Black Leftists Use Racism to Destroy American Foundations


Race-Baiter-In-Chied & Anger Games

John R. Houk

© December 2, 2014

 

The Obama Administration fundamental transformation of America has embedded confusion among the populace, increased mistrust of government among the anti-Liberal populace, rampant government corruption and lies and the transformation of the American legal system into tools of a Leftist agenda unfortunately utilizing race-baiting as the instrumental tool.

 

Now believe it or not I am going to move toward the beheading of a White Woman by a Black Man, but I feel I need to drive a point home first.

 

I’m curious. If I said “Trayvon Martin,” would you recognize that name? How about if I said “Michael Brown,” do you recall that name?

 

Martin was the unarmed teen that was shot to death by George Zimmerman after the teen decided to attack Zimmerman for questioning the teen’s presence in his neighborhood. Brown is the eighteen year old Black thug that strong-armed the robbery of a carton of cigarettes from a convenience store followed closely by Ferguson Police Officer telling him to get out of the middle of the street in which Brown provocatively declined to obey the Officer. Officer Wilson then proceeded to place Brown in his squad car at which time Brown attacked Wilson grabbing for the Officer’s gun while pummeling the Officer’s face. Wilson managed to secure his weapon falling out of the squad car with Brown making a break for it. Wilson then told the young thug to stop. Instead of stopping the huge teenage thug turned to rush Officer Wilson resulting in the Officer shooting until he felt the lethal was necessary or get beaten up.

 

What did Martin and Brown have in common? They were both Black-American unarmed teens exploited by race-baiters inciting the Black-American to anger.

 

The first media reports on the Martin-Zimmerman incident was that the shooter was a racist white neighborhood watch person. Which was interesting since Zimmerman had a Hispanic-Black background (Mother: Peruvian born with Black Grandfather) and a Germanic background (Father: German ancestry and Roman Catholic even though Zimmerman can also be Jewish). The race-baiting by Left Wing Black & White Americans demonstrates hypocrisy.

 

The Brown-Wilson incident in Ferguson Missouri was largely stoked by a Left Wing media and race-baiting Leftists – both Black and White – who need social justice turmoil propaganda do win elections to perpetuate the lies propagandized to their dependent-entitled constituents. The lying myths created by race-baiters is accurately told by Bryce Buchanan which I found at the American Thinker:

 

The events in Ferguson, Missouri are the latest example of sick political theater, carefully orchestrated to shape public policy. The theatrical productions are pure fiction, but are presented as fact. They are morality plays with heroes and villains intended to create strong emotions directed at a political objective. All the elaborate productions are based on central lies. None would be possible without a complicit media to carry the script.

 

The fictional stories written for the Mike Brown/Darren Wilson and the Trayvon/Zimmerman morality plays followed nearly the same script. Two wonderful young black men were shot by racist white men for no reason at all. They were “executed”. They were “gunned down like dogs”. America is racist. Cops are racist.

The leftist media present the fictional story with glee, repeating the lies endlessly, sometimes doctoring the evidence and always ignoring the facts. They appear oblivious to the hatred and division that they are causing. Or worse, they appear to seek violence as a ratings booster. In Ferguson, the mob knew the script. For media and mob it was, “lights, camera, action!”

 

In reality, the Brown/Wilson tragedy does not fit the narrative of a racist cop killing a gentle black man. The opposite is true.  Let’s examine some of the other narratives that were pushed by the emotional, misinformed mobs. Three common chants and protest signs were: We Want Justice, Black Lives Matter, and Stop Killing Us.

 

“We Want Justice”: It is an undeniable fact that the credo, “snitches get stitches” dominates black culture. Cooperation with the police is explicitly forbidden and those who testify about crimes are very often punished for it. There are many black murder cases where significant numbers of people witnessed the murder and none of them will talk to the police. The do not want justice.

 

“Black Lives Matter”: Where are these demonstrators when thousands of other black lives are snuffed out? It appears that “Some Black Lives Matter” — the ones that are part of the show.

 

“Stop Killing Us”:  91% of black murder victims are killed by other African-Americans according to FBI statistics. You should stop killing you. White people and white policemen are not the problem. Thomas Sowell has some insight on the real problem here and Jason Riley here.

 

READ ENTIRETY (Sick Political Theater; By Bryce Buchanan; American Thinker; 11/29/14)

 

Martin-Zimmerman and Brown-Wilson are the classic examples of a situation infecting America successfully since January 2009. God help us if the 2016 elections don’t reverse this race-baiting domination by January 2017.

 

Now that I have refreshed your memories of four people I’d be surprised if you didn’t recall some of that recent history. Let me ask you another current event question. Do you know who Colleen Hufford was?

 

I’m willing to bet you do not have a clue who she was unless you maybe watch Fox News and in that case her name as a victim wasn’t really publicized too much.

Hufford is the Oklahoma woman assaulted and beheaded by Alton Nolen at her job and the executioner’s former job. The Mainstream Media (MSM) notoriously dropped Hufford’s victimhood when the Obama Administration’s FBI decided to classify the murder and assaults as workplace violence. Case closed – the local authorities can deal with murderer Nolen, right?

 

WRONG! Alton Nolen was a crazy homegrown jihadi driven to a murderous craze from the Islamic ideology spewed by the Islamic Society of Greater OKC which is a member of Radical Muslim Mosque network under the aegis of Islamic Society of North America. Unfortunately there is no proof Nolen was given marching orders from these Islamic terrorist supporting entities, but at the very least it wouldn’t take a rocket scientist to determine where his brainwashing began.

 

Ryan Burnside has an article showing some new relevant information that Colleen Hufford’s beheading was DEFINITELY NOT workplace violence. Not only was Nolen practicing jihad against non-Muslims but the info shows just how horrific the attack was. Released autopsy data shows that Hufford did not kneel down like an obedient dhimmi, rather she put up a fight in which the murderous Muslim Nolen had to wear Hufford out before he beheaded from the front rather than the typical submissive kneel made popular by ISIS videos.

 

How corrupt has the FBI become under the Obama Administration that America’s premier crime fighting police agency chooses the propaganda of workplace violence rather than the truth of Muslim-hate of people refusing to submit to Islam?

BREAKING: Shocking New Details Released About Woman Beheaded by Muslim in Oklahoma

 

By RYAN BURNSIDE

December 2nd, 2014

Conservative Tribune

 

New details have emerged regarding the woman who was violently beheaded by a domestic Islamic terrorist at an Oklahoma food plant in September.

 

Early media reports depicted the gruesome encounter as one where the radical Islamist, Alton Alexander Nolen, attacked and killed Colleen Hufford from behind.

 

But according to new[s] reports, Hufford wasn’t just an innocent victim who didn’t put up a fight – she fought valiantly to save her own life. (H/T Viral.Buzz)

 

The man, who the media only said was a “recent” Muslim convert, actually had multiple social media postings on Facebook that professed his allegiance to the Islamic State.

 

But the FBI still classified the crime as “workplace violence” and not what it truly was – domestic terrorism.

 

Hufford suffered multiple defensive wounds as she fought the Islamist at every turn, doing everything she possibly could to protect her life.

 

The autopsy report clearly shows that she did not die with her back turned.

 

She had wounds across her hands, cheeks, arms and neck before she was injured enough that the Islamist was able to carry out the beheading.

 

“Evidence from the autopsy indicates Hufford put up a fight before her death. The autopsy describes multiple defensive injuries to both hands and her right arm and other injuries to Hufford’s cheek, chest and upper arm.”

 

Hufford was a hero in her own right. Though she ultimately lost the battle for her life, she gave it all she had.

 

But did Obama acknowledge her death? Not a bit. As a matter of fact, he never mentioned her name once in public.

 

Yet, Trayvon Martin could be his son, and Mike Brown’s death was a tragedy.

 

Hufford won’t get the attention she deserves. We have the utmost respect for this American woman for at least attempting to fight this Islamic monster off before he took her life for no reason.

 

The killer remains in jail, where he’ll rot for a long time to come or hopefully face the death penalty.

Alton Nolen the Oklahoman Islamic Terrorist

African-American converted to Islam Alton Nolen beheaded 54 year old Colleen Hufford and stabbed 43 year old Traci Johnson 19 times at Vaughan Foods in Moore OK. Why?

 

More details are probably forthcoming but so far it appears Nolen was fired from Vaughan Foods for a combination of proselytizing Islam and expressing a demand that women should be stoned for certain offenses to Sharia Law. The logical conclusion is Nolen wigged out for being fired and apparently went after the two women in his eye-sights with a food processing knife sawing off the head of Ms. Hufford and stabbing Ms. Johnson times before COO and Reserve Deputy Sheriff Mark Vaughan shot Nolen to prevent more stabbings and murders.

 

I wonder if President Obama and outgoing Attorney General Eric Holder will notice that a white man from Oklahoma shot a Black man.

 

So far the local police is reporting this as workplace violence even though Nolen has definite associations with Radical Muslims and an adherence to Islamic terrorists caught promoting terrorism or participating in terrorism. O yeah, in local interviews Vaughan Food workers report hearing Nolen repeating Radical Islamic phrases while beheading Ms. Hufford and stabbing Ms. Johnson.

 

Classifying Nolen’s actions only as workplace violence is insane considering his vehement proselytizing, Clerics followed, Terrorist organizations followed and Islamic utterances on his attempted mass murder spree. To make politically correct Left Wing multiculturalists happy at best the description of this heinous crime must be both workplace violence and Islamic terrorism.

 

AND to address another issue. Mark Vaughan’s foresightedness to carry a weapon saved the day from Nolen executing an intended massacre in the name of Allah. This is yet another demonstration that Leftists’ attempt to confiscate guns from pro-2nd Amendment/pro-gun rights activists is a ludicrous plan. A gun saved more lives than a gun killed anyone.

Uh Oh… Oklahoma Terror Beheader Linked to Al Qaeda Leader (Includes Updates on Beheading Story)

 

By Eric Odom

September 27, 2014 10:36 am

Liberty News

 

A plethora of new details are now available and paint a much clearer picture of what happened in the terror attack in Moore, Oklahoma last week. For those who don’t know, a Muslim man named Alton Nolen brutally attacked two individuals, severely injuring one and severing the head of the other.

 

What was Alton Nolen’s motive? McCurtain Gazette, a local print-only newspaper found details through one of Nolen’s classmates.

 

A classmate of Nolen’s, who didn’t wish to be identified, told this newspaper that he spoke to a close family member of Nolen’s today. He told this newspaper that according to the family member, Nolen was telling coworkers Thursday of an Islamic teaching that said women should be stoned for an offense, and that an argument followed the mark, Nolen was later fired and returned later Thursday, when he beheaded Colleen Hufford, the family member said.

 

So basically Nolan tried to force his fellow-workers that a woman should be stoned for certain minor offenses that violate Sharia law. The workers obviously didn’t take kindly to it and an argument broke out. As a result (not confirmed) Nolan was fired.

 

This suggest the firing is what set Nolan’s terror act in motion. Local police still refer to the beheading as workplace violence. This is likely because Nolan’s firing is what enraged him to the point of committing an act of terror. Where the workplace violence term is wrong, of course, is that Nolan was a Muslim who openly supported radical terrorist murders. Nolan admitted on his Facebook page that he believed Sharia law was coming and called for the death of America as well as Israel.

 

Workplace violence doesn’t include beheading “infidels” over religious disagreements. That’s called Jihad.

 

Speaking of Jihad, new evidence is available via Breitbart is now revealing a very, very ugly connection Nolan had through his Islam religion.

 

Suhaib Webb, an Imam with ties to former Al Qaeda mastermind Anwar al-Awlaki, had also previously been the leader of the Islamic Society of Greater Oklahoma City, which had been attended by Alton Nolen — the man who on Thursday beheaded a former coworker after recently converting to Islam, Breitbart News has learned. Webb now serves as Imam of the sister organization of the mosque attended by Boston Marathon bombers Dzhokhar and Tamerlan Tsarnaev.

 

Imam Suhaib Webb has a history of ties to radicalism. FBI surveillance documents found that he was a known confidant of Al Qaeda mastermind Anwar al-Awlaki. Just two days before the September 11, 2001 attacks on America, Webb spoke at a fundraiser with Awlaki with hopes to raise funds for Atlanta-based H. Rap Brown, a man that shot and killed two police officers. The FBI documents also found that “Webb and Awlaki may be associated with the Muslim American Society,” which is a group described by the Investigative Project on Terrorism as being “founded as the United States Chapter of the Muslim Brotherhood.”

 

It’s possible Nolan’s Imam had nothing to do with his radical Islam conversion. But isn’t it also highly suspicious that Nolan converts to Islam, attends a mosque with an Imam who had ties to Anwar al-Awlaki, and then goes on a rampage that ends in the beheading of an infidel?

 

In any event, it can no longer be questioned whether or not Nolan’s Muslim religion played a role in his act of terror via a beheading of an innocent American. The question now is, when and where will this happen next?
