Say, Have Ya Heard About The Violent, Criminal Gang Called The ‘Obama Boyz’? (Video)

About That Violent Gang, The ‘Obama Boyz’ – WorldNetDaily

There are four felony counts of first-degree assault, four felony counts of armed criminal action and two felonies for allegedly firing a gun from a vehicle and hitting people pending against a St. Louis suspect whom police identified as being a member of the “Obama Boyz” gang.


Obama Boyz?

Is this related to President Barack Obama’s comment when he implied he was taking sides in the Trayvon Martin shooting case in Florida that, “If I had a son, he’d look like Trayvon?”

Or maybe it has more to do with a comment from WND columnist Jack Cashill about two thugs who allegedly shot and killed an athlete in Oklahoma, for fun.

Said Cashill after the recent death, “The drugs, the racial animosity, the violence, the attachment to the hip hop culture – if Trayvon was the son of Barack Obama, they [the suspects] were his brothers. They were on the same track that Trayvon was.”

The facts in the case are these: Anthony Jamal Lee, then 18, was arrested about a year ago for allegedly firing a gun out of a car and injuring several people, and as part of the local reports, police confirmed he was part of the “Obama Boyz” gang. Police did not elaborate.

St. Louis gang detectives and other police officials all declined today to respond to WND requests for comment, but many times gangs take their names from their neighborhoods, and in East St. Louis, there is a Barack Obama Ave.

But the links between the violence associated with street gangs, the specific case, which remains pending, against Lee, and the president, is creating a white-hot discussion on the Internet.

According to TheBlackSphere.net, “Can’t blame this one on Bush, who surprisingly doesn’t have any street gangs named after him. Heck, even America’s first black president, Bill Clinton, doesn’t have a street gang named after him. No, that distinction is reserved for the president who has inspired black teens to ‘hope and change.’”

At the Sodahead blog, one commenter, who uploaded an image of a mostly black row of prison inmates, noted, “I’m sure they will do their namesake proud.”

The blog noted that the suspect, Lee, allegedly fired a gun a a group of people last September, and a 13-year-old boy was hit in the side and a 17-year-old boy was grazed on his face and arm.

“Lee, according to authorities, then fired from his car at two passengers in another Grand Prix, grazing one of them in the back… Authorities said Lee is a documented member of the ‘Obama Boyz’ gang, but did not elaborate.”

Online records show the charges have not yet been resolved by Missouri’s judicial system, and the office of an attorney representing Lee confirmed to WND that the cases had not yet been closed out.

Cashill, a bestselling author and renown investigative reporter who has “If I Had a Son: Race, Guns, and the Railroading of George Zimmerman” coming out in October, with an ebook version available in a few weeks, told WND, “Even those of us who didn’t vote for Obama hoped that he could help bridge the racial divide. Unfortunately, he has done just the opposite. Insecure about his own identity as an African-American, he has been afraid to address the problems of the culture he so desperately wants to be part of.”

WND contributor Colin Flaherty, who through his “White Girl Bleed A Lot” book, probably has done more reporting on black-on-white violence in America that any other reporter, told WND, “Black mob violence takes a lot of forms. Sometimes it looks like a street gang called the Obama Boyz. Sometimes it is just a group of people without a name. Either way, the damage they do, the effort the media expends to ignore them and condone their actions is enormous.”

And Marlin Newburn, a former prison psychologist and author of the coming “Send Your Kids to Jail: The Manual for the Mutant Parent,” told Flaherty, “The characters in the video demonstrate the exact profile of a typical young prison inmate complete with feelings of invincibility and power based on extreme violence, immediate gratification, an identification with the RAP-gang culture, and a child-like idea of manhood. They’re children with adult prerogatives.”

He continued, “Their preadolescent thought processes have also developed a firm belief that regardless of their criminal actions, they’ll get backing from Obama and the black race pimps who never fail to find a media microphone to displace responsibility for them. These future felons are functionally illiterate, guaranteed, but they know they’ll be defended after the worst happens to their victims. The short explanation is that they are completely infantalized due to being defended constantly in the MSM, leftist politicians, and race hustlers, all who make excuses for their actions and angrily attack anyone who would hold them accountable.”

Erik Rush, author of “Negrophilia: From slave block to pedestal – America’s racial obsession,” told WND, “It shouldn’t be particularly surprising that a subculture of young, angry black men is proliferating under President Obama. While his tone when addressing matters of race and racial tension is usually measured and compassionate, his rhetoric is what I call ‘artfully divisive.’ It legitimizes and reinforces all of the worst beliefs of propagandized blacks, as well as the more militant and radical worldview of those who subscribe to same. His administration has also labored furtively but very effectively to heighten racial tension, I submit in order to precipitate civil unrest and thereby advance its communist agenda.”

The “Obama Boys” also have been memorialized in a graphic, objectionable-language infused video: (Please use discretion when watching.)


At the Examiner, a reporter covering street gangs noted just a few weeks ago, “About 20 juveniles and four others between the ages of 17 and 20 were arrested Saturday night after St. Louis police said their loitering was causing traffic to stop and blocking sidewalks at Broadway and Market in the tourist hotel area… The older four are being charged with disturbing the peace and contributing to the delinquency of minors. Was this group part of the highly controversial ‘Obama boys” street gang that has terrorized the city?”

At Newsone for Black Americans, was the following:

“When one thinks of ways to pay homage to the 44th president of the Untied States, Barack Obama, naming a violent street gang in his honor probably doesn’t top the list. Plant a tree, maybe, or feed the homeless, but forming a band of thugs?”

The commentary continued, “Well, allegedly, that’s exactly what occurred in St. Louis, Mo. One member of the ‘Obama Boyz,’ Anthony Jamal Lee, 18, now ‘faces a mix of 10 felony counts of first-degree assault, armed criminal action and firing shots from a vehicle.’”

The website continued, “It’s a sad, sad day when the only thing that the election of the first black president motivates a group of young black men to do is name a gang after him. The pathetic part is, they probably think it’s cool.”

There’s also an online Obama Boyz Va Twitter account, but it is unrelated to the St. Louis activity, explaining it is “A spin off crew from Va’s Diamond League Movement. All recording artists affiliated with VBlock Entertainment & (sic) staunch supporters of Prez Obama.”

The titles listed including, “Who U Votin’ Fa?” and “I Love Obamacare!”

*VIDEO* Gang Of Probable Obama Supporters Loots, Trashes Detroit Gas Station


International Hacker Gang Stole $45 Million From ATMs

Feds In NYC: Hackers Stole $45M In ATM Card Breach – Yahoo News

A worldwide gang of criminals stole $45 million in a matter of hours by hacking their way into a database of prepaid debit cards and then draining cash machines around the globe, federal prosecutors said Thursday – and outmoded U.S. card technology may be partly to blame.


Seven people are under arrest in the U.S. in connection with the case, which prosecutors said involved thousands of thefts from ATMs using bogus magnetic swipe cards carrying information from Middle Eastern banks. The fraudsters moved with astounding speed to loot financial institutions around the world, working in cells including one in New York, Brooklyn U.S. Attorney Loretta Lynch said.

She called it “a massive 21st-century bank heist” carried out by brazen thieves.

One of the suspects was caught on surveillance cameras, his backpack increasingly loaded down with cash, authorities said. Others took photos of themselves with giant wads of bills as they made their way up and down Manhattan.

Here’s how it worked:

Hackers got into bank databases, eliminated withdrawal limits on pre-paid debit cards and created access codes. Others loaded that data onto any plastic card with a magnetic stripe – an old hotel key card or an expired credit card worked fine as long as it carried the account data and correct access codes.

A network of operatives then fanned out to rapidly withdraw money in multiple cities, authorities said. The cells would take a cut of the money, then launder it through expensive purchases or ship it wholesale to the global ringleaders. Lynch didn’t say where they were located.

It appears no individuals lost money. The thieves plundered funds held by the banks that back up prepaid credit cards, not individual or business accounts, Lynch said.

She called it a “virtual criminal flash mob,” and a security analyst said it was the biggest ATM fraud case she had heard of.

There were two separate attacks, one in December that reaped $5 million worldwide and one in February that snared about $40 million in 10 hours with about 36,000 transactions. The scheme involved attacks on two banks, Rakbank in the United Arab Emirates and the Bank of Muscat in Oman, prosecutors said.

The plundered ATMs were in Japan, Russia, Romania, Egypt, Colombia, Britain, Sri Lanka, Canada and several other countries, and law enforcement agencies from more than a dozen nations were involved in the investigation, U.S. prosecutors said.

The accused ringleader in the U.S. cell, Alberto Yusi Lajud-Pena, was reportedly killed in the Dominican Republic late last month, prosecutors said. More investigations continue and other arrests have been made in other countries, but prosecutors did not have details.

An indictment unsealed Thursday accused Lajud-Pena and the other seven New York suspects of withdrawing $2.8 million in cash from hacked accounts in less than a day.

Such ATM fraud schemes are not uncommon, but the $45 million stolen in this one was at least double the amount involved in previously known cases, said Avivah Litan, an analyst who covers security issues for Gartner Inc.

Middle Eastern banks and payment processors are “a bit behind” on security and screening technologies that are supposed to prevent this kind of fraud, but it happens around the world, she said.

“It’s a really easy way to turn digits into cash,” Litan said.

Some of the fault lies with the ubiquitous magnetic strips on the back of the cards. The rest of the world has largely abandoned cards with magnetic strips in favor of ones with built-in chips that are nearly impossible to copy. But because U.S. banks and merchants have stuck to cards with magnetic strips, they are still accepted around the world.

Lynch would not say who masterminded the attacks globally, who the hackers are or where they were located, citing an ongoing investigation.

The New York suspects were U.S. citizens originally from the Dominican Republic, lived in the New York City suburb orf Yonkers and were mostly in their 20s. Lynch said they all knew one another and were recruited together, as were cells in other countries. They were charged with conspiracy and money laundering. If convicted, they face 10 years in prison.

Arrests began in March.

Lajud-Pena was found dead with a suitcase full of about $100,000 in cash, and the investigation into his death is continuing separately. Dominican officials said they arrested a man in the killing who said it was a botched robbery, and two other suspects were on the lam.

The first federal study of ATM fraud was 30 years ago, when the use of computers in the financial community was growing rapidly. At the time, the Bureau of Justice Statistics found nationwide ATM bank loss from fraud ranged from $70 and $100 million a year.

By 2008, that had risen to about $1 billion a year, said Ken Pickering, who works in security intelligence at CORE Security, a white-hat hacking firm that offers security to businesses.

He said he expects news of the latest ring to inspire other criminals.

“Once you see a large attack like this, that they made off with $45 million, that’s going to wake up the cybercrime community,” he said.

“Ripping off cash, you don’t get that back,” he said. “There are suitcases full of cash floating around now, and that’s just gone.”

Obamamerica- a preview

Stacy McCain comments on the sad death of a beautiful young girl, gunned down by a thug in, where else, Chicago, where gangs, government thugs, and very strict gun laws offer us a preview of what America is looking at under Obama.

Her name was Hadiya Pendleton and she was only 15 years old:

The city’s 42nd slaying is part of Chicago’s bloodiest January in more than a decade, following on the heels of 2012, which ended with more than 500 homicides for the first time since 2008. . . .
About three blocks from Hadiya’s school, she and a group of 10-12 young people, including members of her volleyball team, had taken refuge under a canopy at a park to avoid the rain Tuesday afternoon. A man climbed a fence behind the park, ran at the group and started shooting, and then jumped back over the fence and into a white Nissan. The group scattered, but Hadiya was shot once in the back and a teenage boy was shot in the leg.
Police said Hadiya had no arrest record and there was no indication she was a member of a gang or was the gunman’s target. In fact, McCarthy said there are no indications that anyone in the group was gang-affiliated. He said the police suspect that the gunman may be a member of a gang that considers the park its turf and that he mistook somebody in the group as someone from an encroaching rival gang.

Gangs, both on the street and in government run Chicago it seems. Why doesn’t Mayor Rahmbo get tough on gangs? I mean come on Rahmbo, isn’t this a crisis? Are you going to waste this one? Or perhaps actually making Chicago safer and serving the people are not worthwhile to Rahmbo after all.

Chicago has very stringent gun laws. What Chicago doesn’t have is economic opportunity, honest government or enough law-abiding citizens to keep the peace, so that neighborhoods are effectively ruled by gangs like the Satan’s Disciples and the Latin Kings, who terrorize and intimidate residents. Witnesses will not testify against the gangsters, and the police — to the extent that Chicago police are notentirely corrupt — are unable to apprehend or effectively prosecute these criminals.

Hadiya Pendleton was murdered about a mile from the $1.6 million-dollar home that Obama purchased in a corrupt deal with Tony Rezko.

Tragic, heart breaking, and, as I said, I fear a sign of things to come in Obamamerica. Stacy McCain offers the same awful preview

This is the future of corruption and criminality — “The Chicago Way” — that Obama is bringing to America as a matter of policy.

Ain’t that peculiar?

Michele Bachmann said in the last debate that Gingrich was wrong about deciding if certain illegals, who had been here for a very long time might stay, rather than being deported. Well, Michele, perhaps you forget that you agreed with Newt before, well, you know the rest………

OUCH! That has to hurt.

Look, Rick Perry is right about the border it must be secured FIRST! Then, and only then we can look at how to handle those illegals here already. Otherwise, those deported will just come right back. And I certainly say that we ought to deport the worst first, MS-13 gang members, those who have committed crimes, etc. And we ought to work our way back from there.
