VIA| Prepare yourself to not be surprised. At all. Unless, of course, you’re President Obama, in which you *are* likely surprised — after learning about this on the news, of course.

Authorities are now disclosing that the shooter who brutally murdered 14 and wounded 21 yesterday in San Bernardino had been in touch with international terrorism subjects being investigated by the FBI.

Via CNN, of all places:

San Bernardino, California (CNN) [Breaking news update at 12:13 p.m. ET]

San Bernardino shooter Syed Rizwan Farook was in touch over the phone and via social media with more than one international terrorism subject who the FBI were already investigating, law enforcement officials said.

It appears that Farook was radicalized, which contributed to his motive, though other things — like workplace grievances — may have also played a role, other law enforcement sources said.

What’s perhaps most shocking — in the category of #shockingnotshocking — is that anyone is *still* suggesting “workplace grievances” played a meaningful role in yesterday’s massacre. This shooter — a devout Muslim — apparently had an “IED factory” in his home, after having recently returned from Saudi Arabia.

And, as Col. West asked earlier:

Do any of you buy the prospect that someone could become upset, drive home, find a female accomplice, get all “jocked up” with tac gear — to include body armor, various weapons, ammo, masks – even cameras — then return to the stated party and gun people down?

And, now, we’re learning that — as we feared — this shooter was indeed in contact with international terrorism subjects. So this doesn’t appear to be a case of a lone wolf (or wolves) — but, rather, seemingly connected to something larger.

As hard as the left is trying — so desperately — to fuel any other narrative BUT the reality of Islamic terrorism, it’s getting harder and harder for anyone to deny the facts.

Though the “breaking news” email I *just* received from the New York Times — as this news of the Muslim shooter was breaking — shows just how desperate they are to keep trying: “Pentagon Will Open All Combat Roles to Women.” Really, just wow. Nothing to see over here, folks, about the Muslim mass murderer who’s connected to international terrorists.

And while it’s shocking, yet not surprising, to realize how our world has — once again — changed overnight, what’s equally shocking and not surprising is the willful denial from the left.
