Terror Attacks Hit The Hague and London, Two Killed Several Stabbed

Two people have been killed and several others stabbed in two separate terror incidents in The Hague, Netherlands, and London England.

Two people have been killed and several others stabbed in two separate terror incidents in The Hague, Netherlands, and London England.

The first attack occurred on Friday at the UK’s historic London Bridge where a man armed with a knife killed two before being shot dead by police.

A man not yet identified publicly began attacking people just before 2 PM on London Bridge which connects the city’s business district with the south bank of the River Thames.

The thus far unidentified suspect is said to have been a known terror suspect.

Police also said the man was wearing what looked like a suicide vest. But it was later discovered that it was a fake vest made to look real.

The man began stabbing random people, but citizens of London were not to cower in fear this time as several bystanders jumped in to subdue the man. The bystanders began kicking and punching the suspect until he dropped the knife.

According to a witness:

“About three or four guys came out of that building,” Lawrence told the newspaper. “One had a stick. One had a fire extinguisher. He was brandishing it at first, then spraying it [at the suspect]. The guy with the stick was poking him.”

“They approached the knifeman at the north end of the bridge, and he stood swiping his knives — one in each hand — around him. The men who gave chase successfully tackled the knifeman to the ground,” he continued.

“Then the police got him. It looked like they tasered him,” he said, adding that police ordered him to run from the bridge as gunshots rang out and several cops aimed their guns at a truck left diagonally across the span.

Finally, after police arrived, the suspect was shot and killed on the scene.

British Prime Minister Boris Johnson praised the bystanders as the very best” of the UK’s citizens.

In a statement Johnson paid tribute to the police, the emergency services personnel and “extraordinary bravery” of the bystanders involved in the incident. “They represent the very best of our country and I thank them on behalf of all of our country,” Johnson said.

The attack in London was only the first stabbing attack on Friday. A second incident occurred in The Hague’s busy shopping district in the Netherlands. Three people were stabbed by an assailant who attacked in the midst of a crowd of busy shoppers.

The suspect is still at large, officials said.

In a statement, Hague police said they were seeking a man aged 45-50 and described him as a man of North African descent. That usually means a Muslim immigrant in that region of Europe.

UPDATE: Terrorist Named

The London Bridge attacker has been identified as Usman Khan, 28. Kahn had already served seven years in a British prison starting in 2012 for planning a mass terror attack in the UK.

NAACP Refuses to Call 9/11 Attacks an Act of Terrorism, Backlash is Swift

In a tweet meant as a memorial to the horrific terror attacks on Sept. 11, the NAACP said that the attack was only a “horrific incident that occurred on 2001.”

Published

In a tweet that was meant as a memorial to the horrific terror attacks on Sept. 11, the NAACP said only that the attack was a “horrific incident that occurred on 2001.” And the backlash was swift and sharp.

In its tweet posted on the morning of Sept. 11 this year, the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP) wrote, “Today we remember all the lives lost and families affected during the horrific incident that occurred in 2001.” The tweet also contained a photo of two beams of light rising up in a New York city scape along with the words “Always Remember, 9.11.01.”

While the graphic told followers to “always remember,” the group’s tweet seemed to reveal that the NAACP itself was the one forgetting something.

It forgot that the attack on Sept. 11 was NOT merely a “horrific incident that occurred on 2001.”

That “incident” was Islamic terrorism.

And immediately, the NAACP was reminded of what it forgot by people responding to the ill-advised tweet.

In fact, if you look over the Twitter replies, you’ll find it difficult to find any replies supportive of the NAACP6’s tweet.

The Blaze tracked a few of those replies:

Some of the responses:

  • “Is it really that hard to say terrorist attack?” one user asked.
  • “Why don’t you just tweet out #AllBuildingsMatter like the rest of these disgusting people?” another commenter asked.
  • “To the person who wrote this: Were you alive on that day? Do you remember watching the second plane hit and watching the towers fall?” another user wondered.
  • “You misspelled ‘terrorist attack,'” another commenter noted.
  • “F*** you! It was a terrorist attack!” another user said. “NAACP seems to be supporting terrorism with posts like this. Not surprised though.”
  • “Say it with us,” another commenter quipped. “It was a ᴛᴇʀʀᴏʀɪꜱᴛ ᴀᴛᴛᴀᴄᴋ.”
  • “Incidents aren’t on purpose,” another user observed. “This was something that was planned out and executed, murdering thousands of civilians in its wake.”
  • “INCIDENT???” another user exclaimed. “WTF did you just call an incident. 9/11/2001 was a TERRORIST ATTACK… PERIOD. How f***ing stupid of you to try to sugar coat that s**t. Just utterly disgusting. Clearly your asses already forgot!!”

Here is a screen shot of the tweet just in case the NAACP tries to send it down the memory hole by deleting it:

America, We Must NEVER Forget the Outrages of 9/11!

It has been 19 years since that horrible day in 2001 when terrorism hit America with a vengeance.

Published

on

It has been 19 years since that horrible day in 2001 when terrorism hit America with a vengeance. But many want to forget and pretend it never happened and we already have a generation of kids just about to, or soon to enter into their young adult years who can’t remember what happened on September 11, 2001. It is up to us to keep the memory of that day alive lest we allow it to be repeated.

But how do we approach that remembrance? But looking at an empty word document sitting ready to be filled with my 9/11 memorial finds words coming slowly, and I find it so hard to start this piece.

But I realized why it is so hard for me to start this piece. I am still furious, and feelings are still too raw, I still well up in tears when I see video of the towers falling, my heart still stops when I see that heart-wrenching image of bodies falling from windows hundreds of feet in the air. I still get that dark feeling in the pit of my stomach, the same one I felt that morning in 2001.

It’s all still too emotional to write a mere memorial. Words fail me.

I sat there wondering why it was that some 11 years on I still feel this anger, these emotions of loss?

I mean, let’s face it, we have come a long way from those terrible days of vulnerability on September 11, 2001. We’ve killed many hundreds of al Qaeda’s operatives–including the evil bin Laden himself. We’ve seriously hurt that enemy.

We’ve had a healthy dose of revenge on al Qaeda so that should go a long way toward easing the emotions of 9/11.

But that isn’t the problem. The problem is that a large number of Americans still have not learned the lesson that 9/11 should have so easily taught us.

We are now mired in idiotic, politically correct arguments about whether or not Christian ministers will be allowed at any memorial events in New York. We are told that our intelligence officials are being forced to attend Islamic services at mosques so that they can prove we “care” about Muslims. Worse, we still see a large sector of the American political arena saying Tea Partiers and Christians–our own citizens–are somehow “just like” or “just as bad” as the Islamist monsters that cut off people’s heads and throw acid on young girls that supposedly break Islamic traditions.

We have not learned that this enemy is not going to be swayed by our pitiful attempts to show them that we “like” them. They aren’t mad because we don’t like them. They are mad because they don’t rule us and their goal is to either kill us all or subjugate us. There is no black and white here, but too many of our own are fooling themselves into believing that we can “lead from behind” with “soft power.”

It is so bad, in fact, that on the tenth anniversary we still hadn’t been able to come together long enough to build a memorial to the attack, or anything else for that matter, at Ground Zero. Various governments and groups were still arguing over it all even after a decade. Ground Zero was still a barely-started construction site.

Consequently, I find it hard to write a mere memorial as if this is an event long in our past. It is not. Worse, our own people are making sure that we cannot put this behind us because they are not allowing us to beat this enemy.

So, even eighteen years out the wounds are still raw, the enemy still strong, and traitors in our midst are lending them succor.

These words don’t come easily. Nor do they come with relief. They are hard, cold facts. We are still in danger. We can’t “forget,” nor can we start mere memorials as if it is all long over.

It isn’t over.

Today we face the Islamic State, or ISIS, an Islamic terror that is surging back into Iraq and Syria, an infestation of murderous “religion” that Obama ha allowed to grow unchecked and only now is saying we might want to do something about. These people are targeting the United States. They’ve murdered several American citizens specifically to prove they can do it.

Mostly our president does nothing.

So, no. It isn’t over.

Federal Appeals Court Throws Out Death Sentence for Marathon Bomber Dzhokhar Tsarnaev

A federal appeals court threw out the death sentence for convicted Marathon bombing terrorist, Dzhokhar Tsarnaev.

Published

on

On Friday, a federal appeals court in Boston made the shocking decision to throw out the death sentence for convicted Marathon bombing terrorist, Dzhokhar Tsarnaev.

The 1st U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals claimed that the original judge in the case did not properly screen the jurors for potential bias.

“A three-judge panel of the 1st U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals ordered a new penalty-phase trial on whether the 27-year-old Tsarnaev should be executed, ” CBS reported.

“But make no mistake: Dzhokhar will spend his remaining days locked up in prison, with the only matter remaining being whether he will die by execution,” the judges said in their decision.

Tsarnaev and his brother killed three people and injured more than 260 others during the April 15, 2013 attack in Boston.

Per CBS:

Tsarnaev’s lawyers acknowledged at the beginning of his trial that he and his older brother, Tamerlan Tsarnaev, set off the two bombs at the marathon finish line. But they argued that Dzhokhar Tsarnaev is less culpable than his brother, who they said was the mastermind behind the attack.

Tamerlan Tsarnaev died in a gunbattle with police a few days after the bombing. Dzhokhar Tsarnaev is now behind bars at a high-security supermax prison in Florence, Colorado.

Tsarnaev was convicted on 30 charges, including conspiracy and use of a weapon of mass destruction.

Tsarnaev’s attorneys claimed to find a list of problems with his trial, but insisted that the “first fundamental error” in the trial was the judge’s refusal to move the case out of Boston. They also claimed some of the jurors posted biased social media posts.

Boston Mayor Marty Walsh said in a statement that “no one can ever take” the city’s strength.

“The Boston community will never forget the tragic events of April 15, 2013. Precious souls were lost, and countless lives were changed forever,” he said in the statement. “Since the first trial, we have always known that the perpetrator of that horrific violence would never leave the four corners of a prison cell. I have always supported the judicial process, and regardless of the ultimate outcome in this case, my focus will always be on supporting the families, the survivors, and all the people of our great city.”

High School Teacher Fired for Tweeting that Black Lives Matter is a ‘Terror’ Organization

A California Catholic high school teacher lost his job for daring to say that the Black Lives Matter movement is a domestic terror outfit.

Published

on

A California Catholic high school teacher lost his job after school officials bowed to pressure and cast him out for daring to say that the Black Lives Matter movement is a domestic terror outfit.

Timothy Gordon, who until last week taught theology at Garces Memorial High School in Bakersfield, was faced with a backlash from students and some alumni who took umbrage with his characterization of the Black Lives Matter movement.

After students started a petition to have Gordon fired, the school canned the teacher for making “unauthorized” utterances… you know…. as if he had a First Amendment right to do so, or something.

Thing is, he’s right. Black Lives Matter is a socialist-based, anti-American movement that has sponsored murders (CHOP zone), property destruction (every Democrat-controlled city), and riots (again, every Democrat-controlled city).

Sounds like the very definition of terrorism to me.

School officials acted after the student started a petition that garnered almost 300 signatures, according to ABC 23.

The petition claimed Gordon was “spreading unacceptable messages of ignorance and hate on social media and in his classroom.”

“We do not believe that such a person should be granted a platform to teach Garces students. We demand action by the school administration,” the petition added.

Gordon is unrepentant, though.

“They’re essentially saying that my voice, which represents, Catholics, Protestants, and even secular Americans of all races, color and creeds that love America, my voice has no place. And people aren’t going to stand for it,” Gordon said.

He has also hired an attorney to file a wrongful termination lawsuit.

Gordon released a statement saying:

On June 3, 2020, I was wrongfully terminated by the Diocese of Fresno from my teaching position with Garces Memorial High School. The decision was made after I expressed disapproval on Twitter of the recent violent attacks on innocent people by radical groups, and the recent looting and destruction of businesses across the United States.

I called on our country to take action and to use necessary force to protect us from these violent rioters and looters. I am not a racist. As a Christian, I love all races equally: “in Christ there is neither Greek or Jew.” I am a devoted and dedicated husband and father of 6 kids, one of which is recovering from brain surgery. I am a teacher, and I love and support all of my students.

The Diocese’s decision to terminate me was wrongful and a clear breach of my employment contract. The Diocese is discriminating against me because of my conservative political and religious views.

What I have learned from this experience is simple: the Left will stop at nothing to silence and destroy anyone with whom they disagree. They are organized and committed to shutting down debate, silencing speech, and destroying their opponents’ reputations and livelihoods. I will seek justice in the courts.

Just right.

The following is an excerpt of the IA Analytica White Paper The Inevitability of Military Conflict in 2020 published last week.

In a previous White Paper, 150 Days: America in Jeopardy Approaching Election Day, we made the
following conclusion:

In the next five months, from June to Election Day (November 3), the United States is likely to be confronted with a series of events that would not only bring down the Trump Presidency and significantly alter the American political landscape, but have a decades-long impact on the world.

In Undercover Video, Project Veritas Exposes Domestic Terror Group Antifa

In another undercover video, James O’Keefe’s Project Veritas exposes Antifa’s shocking plot to destroy America from the inside.

Published

In another undercover video, James O’Keefe’s Project Veritas exposes Antifa’s shocking plot to destroy America from the inside.

In its new four-minute exposé, PV presents a man who attended an Antifa recruiting session with the Rose City Park, Oregon, branch of the domestic terrorist organization.

Now, the one-time Antifa attendee is ready to spill the beans on the dangerous group.

In the undercover video an Antifa instructor admits that Antifa always intends violence but tries to hide it from the public.

“The whole goal of this thing is to get out there and do dangerous things as safely as possible,” he tells the viewer.

The former Antifa member says that Antifa leaders spend a lot of time teaching new members how to hurt people. He says that they “Practice things like an eye gouge. It takes very little pressure to injure someone’s eyes.”

“Consider destroying your enemy, not like delivering a really awesome right hand, right eye, left-eye blow. It’s not boxing, it’s not kickboxing. It’s like destroying your enemy,” he adds.

He also tells followers to focus on Trump supporters and to continually scream at them to get them to lose their tempers and respond in anger.

The goal of that is to get Trump voters on video saying nasty things — and they hope, racist things.

“If you ruin their day, if you heckle them — if you make them feel like they look ridiculous, make them feel outnumbered — their whole ‘yay yay, America Trump’ thing is gonna go by the wayside,” the Antifa leader says.

The man who took the secret video said that the Antifa group tried to take precautions to make sure what they were saying did not get out.

Attendees were told to “put their phones in the bathroom next door. This bathroom is not only away from the main room where the lecture is taking place, but also has a fan that muffles any sound from the room.”

“They were getting this tradecraft from someone else — someone with much more experience, someone who did this for a living,” the undercover operative then says.

The undercover guy also said that new members are taught how to use weapons.

“They do not hesitate to either push back or incite some kind of violence,” he warned. “In our classes and in our meetings — before we do any sort of demonstration — we talk about weapons detail, what we carry, and what we should have.”

These are left-wing terrorists. They are no different than Islamic extremists.

It’s about time our law enforcement treats them as such.

Joe Biden Promises to Give U.S. Money Back to Palestinians Designated as Terrorists

Joe Biden has promised to restore funds that had been cut from Palestinians who were caught in acts of terror if he becomes president.

Published

Joe Biden has promised to restore funds that had been cut from Palestinians who were caught supporting acts of terror if he were to become president.

The funding was cut by President Donald Trump’s administration after the Palestinians had been determined to be supporters of terrorism.

But as part of his campaign for the White House, Biden promised to restore the funds.

Biden told the Jewish Telegraphic Agency that, “I will reopen the U.S. consulate in East Jerusalem, find a way to re-open the PLO’s diplomatic mission in Washington, and resume the decades-long economic and security assistance efforts to the Palestinians that the Trump Administration stopped.”

Biden didn’t even say that he expected any concessions from the Palestinian terrorists.

Per Breitbart News:

Instead, Biden claimed that reversing Trump’s policies would revive dialogue with the Palestinians toward a two-state solution. But the Obama/Biden administration made no progress toward a two-state solution in eight years, with generous U.S. funding in place and a deliberate policy of “distancing” the U.S. from Israel.

Moreover, Biden failed to mention the reasons the Trump administration took those measures against the Palestinian Authority.

The “decades-long economic and security assistance” was halted for several reasons, one of which was that the Palestinian Authority persists in paying stipends to the families of jailed or dead terrorists. For example, in 2018, President Trump signed the Taylor Force Act — named for an American veteran killed by a Palestinian terrorist in Tel Aviv in 2016. The law which bars the use of U.S. taxpayer funds to support the Palestinian Authority as long as it continues to reward terror. (Biden did not explain how he would repeal that legislation.)

Not only were the Palestinians who Trump defunded supporters of terror, but they also refused to negotiate peace with Israel, another reason Trump cut the funding.

Trump is right. But leave it to a Democrat to be a supporter of Islamic terrorism.
