Did Jihadis Just Execute a Bombing Operation at a CA Mall?

Evidence reveals jihadis attempted to bomb the Los Cerritos Center in California this past weekend.  This is one more in a string of numerous incidents across the United States indicating an increase in willingness by jihadis to use violence to silence those who speak truth about Islam.

Recently UTT has reported:

  • Some local police work harder to protect jihadis in their communities than the citizens.  See UTT article here.
  • Senior leaders of the FBI aid and abet known jihadi leaders and Islamic Centers.  See UTT video here.
  • U.S. Islamic schools teach what ISIS teaches.  See UTT article here.
  • Jihadis are in control of operations of some U.S. ports. See UTT article here.

So it should come as no surprise when a muslim slides his backpack under the table at the Counter Jihad Coalition (CJC) booth in Cerritos, California and walks away.  Literally.



UTT assesses this incident as a thwarted jihadi attack.  Lets look at the facts.

Those of you who follow UTT may remember in August of 2017 UTT published an article on the Counter Jihad Coalition (CJC) and its leader Steve Amundson.

This weekend, Steve and his team, including a pastor, set up their booth in a busy part of a mall called The Los Cerritos Center in Cerritos, California near Los Angeles.  As they always do, CJC hands out literature about Islam and the threat it poses to America and free people.

Over the last 6 months, Steve has reported an increase in physical assaults on him and his team.

The day began with two men snapping pictures of the CJC booth, then getting on the phone.  Steve Amundson witnessed this and recognized it as “red flag one.”

Steve has seen this behavior before, and it is usually the scouts looking for the CJC booth in order to alert others.

Later, two muslim women approached the booth and began cursing CJC’s people and calling them liars.  As mall security, which was standing in the immediate vicinity, was speaking with the women, a white haired muslim male moved over to the booth and slide his backpack under that table.  He then began speaking with the pastor from CJC.

After a short conversation, the muslim man walked away.

Amundson approached the pastor assuming the man was a friend.  When the pastor told Steve the man was an irate muslim complaining about CJC’s activities, Steve was immediately concerned for their safety.  He called security to stop the man, which was done.

Here are Steve Amundson’s words to describe what happened:

“I told security he left a backpack underneath our booth. The Moslem refused to take the backpack. We started to take cover behind cement pillars and told security to either call the bomb squad or have the guy pick up the backpack. He finally agreed to very carefully pick it up and security escorted him away. Security will not say at least right now if he was arrested, if the bomb squad was called or what. Was this a dry run or the real thing?”

Based on conversations Steve Amundson had with authorities, it does not appear the man’s backpack was ever searched.

This is a very serious incident, and either a dry run for a jihadi attack or the real thing.  The evidence leads UTT to believe this was the real thing.

The jihadis continue to ratchet up their aggressiveness, attacks, and violence here in America.

Will the FBI aggressively pursue this, or continue working with the jihadis to ensure no one puts a piece of bacon on the door knob of the local mosque?

  1. Doing open-air evangelism for nearly 20 years and dealing with hostile degenerate stoneworshing muslims for just as long, I learned to always have a camera going or to start recording the moment something doesn’t seem right. Always get as clear a picture or video as possible of the degenerate(s), even if I have to chase them down for the mugshot. Highlight the situation and draw attention to them. These dogs hate attention and hate exposure.

  2. “We started to take cover behind cement pillars”, but no one called 911? Why not? Something is fishy about this account. There has to be more to it than what is presented here. What is the rest of the story?

    • They didn’t call 9/11 because there were three armed professional security personnel on site.

      • The response by CJC and the mall was inadequate. Private mall security answers to mall management, not the city or county (which would have been the case if 911 had been called and the Los Angeles County Sheriff became involved). Mall management’s primary concern is money, not safety. The fact that CJC was not told by mall security whether any police agency was called indicates that mall management is trying to downplay this as much as possible. Also, the two supposed “muslim females” that distracted the one security man are not dressed in anything like what we expect muslim women to wear. They look like “valley girls” to me. Is any work being done to identify them? There’s a lot more to this story, and I hope you follow up on it.

  5. American RICO statutes (Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations) were intended to go after the mafia. The acts of Islamic mullahs and jihadis clearly falls into the same pattern as the mafia. The only difference being, Islam’s claim of an oddball form of “religious legitimacy”.

    The US should use the RICO statutes to, declare Islam, a criminal enterprise. Then close Islam down as it presently exists in the US.

    RICO allows the government to follow crime and money. Then, arrest all, and confiscate anything in its path.

    You can be sure the movement of money for jihad is widespread. You can be sure the incitement and communication between mullahs and mosques is wide spread. You can also be sure there is foreign involvement. The RICO statutes were made just for this type of activity.

    Use a small army of CPAs and attorneys to investigate every jihad attack. Follow 100% of the money back to its source. Track anyone involved, in any way. Then use the RICO statutes to jail, confiscated, and shut down all involved. That includes:

    M1 – Shutting down mosques involved in any jihad attack.
    M2 – Arrest mullahs involved.
    M3 – Follow, and confiscate, all jihad money back to its source.

  6. Gee, funny how not a word, a single word about this in the news at all instead they too busy reporting on the Thailand boys stuck in a cave (sorry who cares), like how does this concern us over here? This is the garbage they feed us to distract us from the important things happening here in our country. This kind of non-reporting of these threats are exactly how we will get hurt when we are not paying attention, falling fast asleep as they bore us to death with the fake news….


    The non-participation of the FBI in America’s existential war* involving Islam’s 14-century attempt to destroy Western Civilization from within in order to impose its draconian hell known as Sharia across the face of the earth could be ended were the following four self-serving former federal diversionists compelled to finally provide sworn testimony regarding their personal knowledge of the inflight aircraft sabotage murders of Gary Caradori and his, then, 8-year old son Andrew Caradori on 11 July 1990 above Lee County Illinois, perpetrated in order to seize and destroy photographic evidence in behalf of high ranking U.S. political figures implicated in the 44-month Franklin Pedophile Network’s unsuccessful cover-up attempt. I.e.: former
    Attorney General Richard Thornburgh; former Assistant Attorney General Criminal Division Robert Mueller III; former Assistant U.S. Attorney Criminal Division Rod Rosenstein; and former FBI Director William Sessions, each of who’s tenure in the Department of Justice, in relevant part, coincided with said open murders.

    Clarify: the mercenaries are the Muslims, not the FBI.

    The FBI mind you does seem reliably to do whatever it’s told and that is throughout it’s history.

    If they have bad masters they’ll carry out bad orders.


  9. The FBI will do what it’s told.

    Perhaps focus on who’s telling them?

    You are looking at mercenaries and not their masters.

    That they’re weak and effete master’s isn’t the point.

    We are betrayed. That’s all.
    Seemingly impossible for Americans to come to grips with betrayal.

    Like open borders – who opened them?

    Good day and good hunting.

    PS-that may well have been the dry run, typical for IED cycle and Islam is very reconnaissance intensive.

  10. The USA (with the rest of the post-Christian West) are very naive. Ignorant. Weak.

    And Allah’s operatives knows it very well. How easily they can infiltrate our nations now. And it will not have an happy ending. It will be very costly.

  11. It may have been better if Amundson had right away called either the FBI or the police, so there would be an evidence trail. The way it happened, as of now, it appears to have vaporized. It would help for us to have a proposed protocol of what to do if something like this happens again.

    This whole situation makes me incredibly nervous, rightly so, on many levels. I want people to know exactly what UTT reports weekly but doing so in a mall makes that venue a target, a possible terrorist attack site, with possible dead innocents. My husband says that could happen anywhere but an annoying thorn in their side is an easy jihadi target, and yet another way they win this deadly info war.
