Hooker loving London jihadist wasn’t ‘proper Muslim’: landlord:

London jihadist Khalid Masood was not a “proper Muslim,” instead preferring the service of prostitutes and days-long crack binges. In the days since Masood’s rampage, a complicated picture of the bloodthirsty zealot has emerged – both as a loving, sweet schoolboy and violent adult. “He wasn’t a proper Muslim,” one-time landlord Cassie Havard told The Sun . “He (had sex with) prostitutes, smoked copious amounts of crack and stuck knives in people’s faces.” Havard said there was also a paranoid, violent streak to Masood – also known as Adrian Emls — just under the surface. “He was a madman. After one four-day crack session, one druggie pal got paranoid and accused him of being an undercover cop,” she said. “Adrian went absolutely wild and ran to the kitchen to grab the biggest knife he could find. He went back in the room and slashed the guy’s face to pieces. It was horrific, but he always had that darker side about


WTF? Huma Abedin ‘working hard’ on marriage with Anthony Weiner:

Fool me once, shame on you. Fool Huma Abedin four times, and she’ll still take you back. After years of public humiliation by her sext-a-holic husband, Anthony Weiner, 40-year-old Abedin finally separated from the former congressman in August, one day after The New York Post reported that he had sent yet another explicit photo to a woman — this one showing his toddler son asleep beside him. But sources say that Hillary Clinton’s righthand woman is now giving the marriage another try. “Huma has been working hard on her relationship with Anthony,” said a source close to the Abedin family. “He has been spending 80 to 90 percent of his time at the [Irving Place apartment] they share . . . If there is a disagreement, he goes to his mother’s apartment in Brooklyn. “Both [his and her] families are hoping they will reconcile.”

U.K. Minister: WhatsApp Must Turn Over Attacker’s Messages:

U.K. Home Secretary Amber Rudd said on Sunday that London attacker Khalid Masood used the messaging service WhatsApp, and that intelligence services are unable to access one of the messages because it was encrypted. Appearing on the BBC and Sky News, Rudd said WhatsApp and similar messaging apps should cooperate with intelligence services and provide necessary information. “We need to make sure that organizations like WhatsApp—and there are plenty of others like that—don’t provide a secret place for terrorists to communicate with each other,” Rudd said. Last year, Apple resisted the FBI’s requests to unlock an iPhone used by the man who carried out the terror attack in San Bernardino, California.

LBN-COMMENTARY by MAUREEN DOWD: You sold yourself as the businessman who could shake things up and make Washington work again. Instead, you got worked over by the Republican leadership and the business community, who set you up to do their bidding. That’s why they’re putting up with all your craziness about Russia and wiretapping and unending lies and rattling our allies. They’re counting on you being a delusional dupe who didn’t even know what was in the bill because you’re sitting around in a bathrobe getting your information from wackadoodles on Fox News and then, as The Post reported, peppering aides with the query, “Is this really a good bill?” You got played. It took W. years to smash everything. You’re way ahead of schedule.

LBN-COMMENTARY by LAWRENCE GROBEL: Celebrities seem to exist in most cultures—some for their prowess as being stronger or more agile than others, some for their sharp wit, some for their ability to mimic others. I don’t know why we are so obsessed as a culture by celebrities, but I’ve seen how people react to seeing someone famous and all I can say is that I’m glad I’m not one. It can be frightening when a stranger approaches you in a restaurant or on a street with a demand for an autograph or a picture. I’ve been with Goldie Hawn when she was approached at a Japanese restaurant by a guy who acted like he knew her and saw how she handled it; with Al Pacino when a woman took him by surprise on the street where he lives in Beverly Hills and thrust a DVD at him, as he jumped away from her and tossed the DVD into a bush as if it might explode. I’ve been around celebs when paparazzi are waiting for them, and I can understand why they react the way they often do. A lot of it stems from when the Manson “Family” committed their crimes, making celebrities afraid. And afterJohn Lennon got shot, it just magnified how vulnerable celebrities are. It’s no fun being a target for the insane.

LBN-COMMENTARY by DENNIS PRAGER: Contrary to one of the left’s more mendacious claims, diversity has not been America’s great strength. America’s great strength has been forging an American identity out of diversity. But the left, with its identity politics and commitment to multiculturalism — as expressed, for example, by ballots in dozens of languages, the proliferation of ethnic studies departments at universities and the allowance of all-black dorms and graduation ceremonies — is undoing that.
