DNC Silent About Terror Attacks Destroying Europe

Democrats continue to ignore the growing problem of Islamic terror

While another ISIS attack takes place in Europe, the DNC is silent over the threat of terrorism.

Probably because they are pushing for the very policies that will bring terrorism to the US.

Video: Smoke Engulfs Eiffel Tower in Paris following Bastille Day Terror Attack

Paris literally burning after tragic event

Startling images out of France show smoke engulfing the Eiffel Tower, following news that a truck drove into a crowd of people killing many in Southern France.

Images of the Eiffel Tower fire began circulating just as news that a truck ploughed through a Bastille Day celebration in Nice, leaving 60 dead and injuring over a hundred.

Multiple reports are now claiming, however, that the fire at the Eiffel Tower is unrelated to the terror attack in Nice and was caused by fireworks.

Orlando Shooting Suspect Identified As Omar Mateen, Registered Democrat Of Afghan Descent With Firearm License

The suspected gunman in today’s gruesome Orlando nightclub shooting which killed “approximately 20 people” has been identified by relatives and law enforcement officials as Omar Mateen, a 29-year-old from Fort Pierce, Florida, CBS reports.

According to social media, he is a US citizen, born in 1986, from Port Saint Lucie, FL. and both his parents are from Afghanistan. He was a registered democrat with a security officer and firearms license. The Orlando Mayor says he used an assault rifle, while Florida Congressman Alan Grayson adds that he believes the attack is “more likely than not” ideologically motivated.

CBS added that the FBI is currently checking if he was linked to extremists.

According to BBC, Mateen was not on any terrorism watch list, although as CBS also adds Islamic terrorism is being investigated as one of the possible motives behind the mass shooting.

CNN adds that the suspected Orlando gunman was trained in use of weapons.

Some more details on the alleged shooter as disclosed on Find the Data, disclose that he was a registered Democrat in the 18th Congressional District.

A search of the Florida Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services database reveals that Mateen had security officer and firearms licenses:

Alleged video from outside the club at the time of the incident:

Update 8:22 am ET: The FBI believes the massacre may have perpetrated by someone “leanings to radical Islamic terrorism.”

ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) — A gunman wielding an assault-type rifle and a handgun opened fire inside a crowded Florida nightclub early Sunday, killing at least 50 people in the worst mass shooting in American history before dying in a gunfight with SWAT officers, police said.

Authorities were investigating it as an act of terrorism.

At least 53 other people were hospitalized, most in critical condition, officials said.

“I think we will see the death toll rise,” said Dr. Mike Cheatham a trauma surgeon at Orlando Regional Medical Center.

Mayor Buddy Dyer said all of the dead were killed with the assault rifle.

“There’s blood everywhere,” Dyer said.

The suspect exchanged gunfire with an officer working at the gay club known as Pulse around 2 a.m., when more than 300 people were inside. The gunman then went back inside and took hostages, Police Chief John Mina said.

Around 5 a.m., authorities sent in a SWAT team to rescue the hostages. Police have not determined an exact number of casualties, but Mina said “approximately 20” bodies were inside the club.

In addition to the guns, the shooter also had some sort of “suspicious device,” Mina said.

Authorities were looking into whether the attack was an act of domestic or international terror, and if the shooter acted alone, according to Danny Banks, an agent with the Florida Department of Law Enforcement.

“This is an incident, as I see it, that we certainly classify as domestic terror incident,” Orange County Sheriff Jerry Demings said.

The suspect was identified as Omar Mateen of Port St. Lucie, Florida.

Rep. Alan Grayson named the shooter, citing law enforcement officials. A federal law enforcement official with knowledge of the investigation also confirmed the name. The official was not authorized to discuss the investigation publicly and spoke on condition of anonymity.

FBI agent Ron Hopper said there was no further threat to Orlando or the surrounding area.

When asked if the gunman had a connection to radical Islamic terrorism, Hopper said authorities had “suggestions that individual has leanings towards that.”

Police had said previously on Twitter that there was a “controlled explosion” at the scene of the shooting. Mina said that noise was caused by a device intended to distract the shooter.

A woman who was outside the dance club early Sunday was trying to contact her 30-year-old son, Eddie, who texted her when the shooting happened and asked her to call police. He told her he ran into a bathroom with other club patrons to hide. He then texted her: “He’s coming.”

“The next text said: ‘He has us, and he’s in here with us,’” Mina Justice said. “That was the last conversation.”

Dozens of police vehicles swarmed the area around the club. At least two police pickup trucks were seen taking what appeared to be shooting victims to the Orlando Regional Medical Center.

Pulse posted on its own Facebook page around 2 a.m.: “Everyone get out of pulse and keep running.” Just before 6 a.m., the club posted an update: “As soon as we have any information, we will update everyone. Please keep everyone in your prayers as we work through this tragic event. Thank you for your thoughts and love.”

Local, state and federal agencies were investigating.

President Barack Obama was briefed on the attack and has asked for regular updates on the investigation, the White House said.

The attack follows the fatal shooting late Friday of 22-year-old singer Christina Grimmie, who was killed after her concert in Orlando by a 27-year-old Florida man who later killed himself. Grimmie was a YouTube sensation and former contestant on “The Voice.”

Jon Alamo said he was at the back of one of the club’s rooms when a man holding a weapon came into the front of the room.

“I heard 20, 40, 50 shots,” Alamo said. “The music stopped.”

Club-goer Rob Rick said the shooting started just before closing time.

“Everybody was drinking their last sip,” he said.

He estimated more than 100 people were still inside when he heard shots, got on the ground and crawled toward a DJ booth. A bouncer knocked down a partition between the club area and an area in the back where only workers are allowed. People inside were able to then escape through the back of the club.

Christopher Hansen said he was in the VIP lounge when he heard gunshots. He continued to hear shooting even after he emerged and police urged people to back away from the club. He saw the wounded being tended to across the street.

“I was thinking, ‘Are you kidding me?’ So I just dropped down. I just said, ‘Please, please, please, I want to make it out,’” he said. “And when I did, I saw people shot. I saw blood. You hope and pray you don’t get shot.”

The Truth About Islam

The problem isn’t “radical Islam,” the problem is just Islam

After every single Islamist terror attack we’re subjected to the same BS from the media and the regressive left.

“This is just a tiny minority of radical extremists. This has nothing to do with Islam.”

There’s no such thing as moderate Islam.

Islam is a violent, intolerant religion which, in its current form, has no place in supposedly liberal western democracies.

Report: German Government Covered Up Terror Attack at Soccer Stadium

Witnesses told not to talk about discovery of bombs

German authorities covered up the fact that explosives were found during an attempted terror attack at a soccer stadium earlier this week, according to an eyewitness who was told to keep quiet about what he saw.

Bild newspaper has published the testimony of a paramedic who saw an explosive device in an ambulance before the Germany vs Netherlands game which was canceled on Tuesday night after French intelligence tipped off German authorities about an impending attack involving three bombs to be detonated at the stadium and another two at a bus stop and a train station.

Authorities later claimed that no explosives were found, but the paramedic says he witnessed the bomb and was “told not to talk about it” after special forces arrived on the scene.

Three police officers have also reportedly been disciplined for leaking information about the alleged discovery of the bombs.

German authorities may have decided to conceal the fact that the explosives were found in order to prevent panic amongst the fans who had gathered around the stadium before the match.

However, given that German police have been caught covering up rapes and other crimes involving migrants flooding into the country via the wave of refugees in order to not legitimize critics of the migrant influx, could the decision to cover-up the discovery of the bombs have been made under a similar justification?

The cell that planned to detonate the explosives reportedly consisted of five people.

After last week’s massacre in Paris, it was confirmed that at least three of the jihadists linked to the plot had exploited the migrant crisis in order to slip into Europe, including the alleged mastermind behind the attacks Abdelhamid Abaaoud.

Abaaoud bragged about being able to travel freely throughout Europe without being intercepted by authorities, telling Dabiq magazine, “My name and picture were all over the news yet I was able to stay in their homeland, plan operations against them and leave safely when doing so became necessary.”

Ahmad Almohammad, the first Stade de France suicide bomber, also used a fake Syrian passport to sneak into Europe via Greece by posing as an asylum seeker.

Death toll at least 160 in Paris terror attacks

Hostages were taken and systematically executed

A series of terror attacks killed at least 160 people in Paris Friday night, the worst acts of violence to hit France since World War II.

The seemingly-coordinated shootings and explosions took place at multiple locations in the French capital, including a café and a stadium where a soccer game was interrupted by an apparent suicide bombing, sending the crowd pouring onto the pitch. Eyewitnesses claim that the assailants carried Kalashnikov rifles.

Some 118 people were reported killed at the Bataclan theater, where hostages were taken and systematically executed before police stormed the building and killed at least three gunmen.

Californian rock band Eagles of Death Metal were performing a concert at the venue.

Reports of gunfire, explosions, and ongoing killings within the theater forced a police assault on the building at about 6:30 p.m. EST, according to Agence France-Presse, which was first to report the scale of the carnage.

Local news channel BFMTV reported that the police operation was concluded at about 7 p.m.

Julian Pearce, speaking to CNN, says he escaped the building earlier in the evening and described it as a “bloodbath.”

There were further reports of gunfire at a food market near the center of town. 42 were reportedly killed there, at the Petit Cambodge restaurant in the 11th district, and in the stadium bombing.

French President Francois Hollande declared a state of emergency in the capital and throughout the Île-de-France and said that the crimes taking place would be stopped. The attack, he said, represented a terrible hardship and said that his thoughts were with the victims and their families.

He also closed the French borders, an unprecedented measure in modern Europe. On twitter, he said that France would defeat the terrorists: “Faced with dread, our nation knows to defend itself, knows to mobilize its forces and, once again, will defeat the terrorists.”

House Committee Passed Legislation to Create Special Domestic Terror Unit the Day Before Chattanooga Shooting

Act ignores role of FBI in creating terror attack plots

by Kurt Nimmo | Infowars.com | July 17, 2015


On Wednesday, prior to the shooting in Chattanooga blamed on a Muslim, the House Homeland Security Committee voted in favor the Countering Violent Extremism (CVE) Act of 2015 (H.R. 2899).

The legislation will create an office within the Department of Homeland Security to address homegrown terrorism and will be allocated $10 million annually.

Pilot CVE programs have already been launched in Boston, Los Angeles and Minneapolis.

Rep. Michael McCaul, a Texas Republican and Homeland Security Committee chairman, sponsored the bill. According to The Washington Times, McCaul said something needs to be done to protect the United States from the growing number of Islamic State inspired-attacks against military facilities, law enforcement officers and Americans.

Congress claims the number of people facing prosecution for planning terror attacks in the United States has increased from 13 in 2014 to 61 in 2015.

Left unmentioned is the fact virtually all high profile domestic terrorism plots in the United States since 9/11 have included the “direct involvement” of government agents or informants, according to a report released last July by Human Rights Watch.

“The problem with the cases we’re talking about is that defendants would not have done anything if not kicked in the ass by government agents,” Martin Stolar, a lawyer for an accused terror suspect, told Mother Jones. “They’re creating crimes to solve crimes so they can claim a victory in the war on terror.”

Forty-two organizations have raised concerns over CVE.

“Given the lack of a sound research basis for CVE programming, establishing a high-level DHS office devoted to the matter would be a further waste of security resources,” states a letter sent to McCaul and Rep. Bennie G. Thompson on July 10 by a number of civil rights groups.

The letter also indirectly addresses the work of the FBI in conjuring up terror plots.

“We note that the bill would require the CVE office to ensure that all CVE-related activities ‘fully respect the privacy, civil rights, and civil liberties of all Americans.’ Unfortunately, given the history of and ongoing abuses in federal counterterrorism policy, including the use of community outreach to gather intelligence and the pressuring of American-Muslims to become informants against their own communities, these words have little meaning.”

TERROR PANIC: Rep. Says NYC Officials Expecting DIRTY BOMB Attack on July 4th

Pentagon Issues alert; ISIS posts map of FBI Command Centers

by Steve Watson | InfoWars | July 2, 2015


New York Congressman Peter King was spreading more of his brand of fear on Fox News last night, telling viewers that officials in New York are worried that there is going to be a dirty bomb attack this weekend.

Speaking to Megyn Kelly regarding the heightened chatter of a possible terrorist attack during 4th of July celebrations, King took things to a whole new level.

Saying he’s never seen this level of concern, King stated “You wouldn’t see the… nuclear explosion detection devices being used the way they are… if this were just a routine warning.”

“Did you just say nuclear?” Kelly responded.

“Yes, that’s a big concern here in New York.” King replied, adding “Nuclear explosives, the dirty bomb. That’s why so much money has been put in to explosive detection devices.”

King, Chairman of the Sub-Committee on Counterterrorism, loves to perpetuate the idea that there are terrorists around every corner in US cities trying to set off nuclear bombs. He is obsessed with stripping away freedoms and rights in favour of more aggressive surveillance and tighter controls in the face of the threat of terrorism.

King has routinely called for the NSA to strengthen and increase its mass surveillance programs.

He has previously referred to NSA whistleblower Edward Snowden as a “terrorist appeaser”, and a traitor, and has called for the extradition and prosecution of Snowden, as well as journalists reporting on the issue of NSA surveillance.

King is an expert in terrorism, having supported the IRA in the 1980s, despite bombings that had killed British soldiers and scores of innocent people, as well as targeting British politicians, including the Prime Minister.

On the heels of official alerts from the FBI, the DHS, as well as former CIA officials over July 4th, the Pentagon has also issued an alert, noting that it is maintaining a “higher alert status” due to potential threats from the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria.

“The call went for increased attacks during Ramadan, which is why you see us maintaining a higher alert status,” Army Gen. Martin Dempsey, chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, told reporters Wednesday.

In addition, fears have been heightened by reports that the FBI is setting up command centers around the country to prepare for terror attacks on the Fourth of July holiday weekend.

ISIS has responded by widely posting a map showing the locations of the temporary command posts.

FBI employees have reportedly had all vacations cancelled over the weekend, and have been warning friends and relatives of a coming attack.
