Munich Police warn of Planned Terrorist Attack

Source: CNBC

Police in Munich, Germany acknowledged Thursday that they know about a possible planned terrorist attack, as major cities around the globe continued to take safety precautions on New Year's Eve.

Two Munich trains stations — Hauptbahnhof and Pasing — were evacuated, police told NBC News. In a tweet, authorities asked people to avoid large crowds in the city, one of Germany's largest.

The nature of the threat and who made it were not immediately clear, but police said they were investigating potential suspects. They said they would provide updates on social media.

San Bernardino shooting: Police seek 1-3 suspects, reports of possibly 20 victims

"The three suspects are believed to be armed with AK-47-type weapons, a local law enforcement official told CNN."


Three assclowns break up an event in Seattle

And a few people here lap it up. To the credit of the membership here, most reject this nonsense.

I question whether these fools had anything to do with BLM. None of them tried to address the crowd, to speak eloquently about the hundreds of men who have lost their lives needlessly at the hands of killer cops. They were only interested in stopping the event by yelling and threatening people.

I suspect this was a paid political operation using Saul Alinsky-type tactics. You saw similar tactics by Republicans in Florida in 2000.

Who benefits? Not black people. Not progressives. Who?

Why Tom Cotton really wants to kill the Iran deal

Tom Cotton is one of the Republican Senators from Arkansas. He has announced that Congress will "kill this deal" with Iran. http://talkingpointsmemo.com/livewire/tom-cotton-iran-nuclear-deal-dangerous

Cotton beat Mark Pryor in his Senate race in 2014. He received $960,250 from the "Emergency Committee for Israel." http://www.opensecrets.org/pacs/indexpend.php?cmte=C90013244&cycle=2014 That's over 70% of the money the Emergency Committee doled out during the 2014 campaign.

As an aside, one really wonders what "the Emergency" is? Israel has stockpiled at least 200 nuclear warheads, probably more, receives more US aid than ever, has a robust economy, cannot be successfully attacked by any (or all) of its neighbors and now suffers few serious terror incidents while still incrementally colonizing Palestine. Some "emergency."

The "Emergency Committee" is run by one of the more notorious supporters of Israel - Neo-con William Kristol, the arrogant and slightly effete founder of the Rightist Weekly Standard and denizen of the MSM talk show circuit. Just to show you that talent really does rise, this guy was once Chief of Staff for that intellectual heavyweight, Dan Quayle.

Kristol has made a nice living off Israeli cheerleading and his other neoconservative ventures. He and his wife are worth nearly one-quarter of a billion dollars ($250,000,000,000). http://iflizwerequeen.com/tag/bill-kristol He can afford to drop a little bank on a rising Republican Star to advance his vision of neocon glory and probably increase that net worth.

Time for Tom Cotton to pay back his Godfather.

Campaign Donations Linked to White Supremacist

Source: NY Times

The leader of a white supremacist group that has been linked to Dylann Roof, the suspect in the murder of nine African-Americans in a Charleston, S.C., church last week, has donated tens of thousands of dollars to Republican campaigns, including those of 2016 presidential contenders such as Ted Cruz, Rick Santorum and Rand Paul, records show.

Mr. Cruz, a Texas senator, said Sunday night that he would be returning about $8,500 in donations that he had received from the Texas donor, Earl Holt III, who lists himself as president of the Council of Conservative Citizens.

“We just learned this evening that Mr. Holt had contributed to the campaign,” a spokesman for the Cruz campaign said in an email to The New York Times. “We will be immediately refunding all those donations.”

US Marines on the Ground in Iraq as ISIS Burns 45 Alive
The Fiscal Times By Riyadh Mohammed

Iraqi local officials in Iraq’s town of al-Baghdadi have warned of another ISIS mass burning massacre. The terror organization surrounded a compound several days ago that houses more than 1000 families and burned 45 people alive.

“ISIS has killed more than 150 people from al-Obaid tribe...some of them were burned alive and some were beheaded...they were policemen...some of them fought against ISIS before,” said sheikh Mal Allah al-Obaidi, the head of the local council in the al-Baghdadi.

An Iraqi air base is located next to al-Baghdadi. More than 300 US military service members are providing training, and coordinating US air raids there. As the US military official at the central command announced that the US will train 12 Iraqi brigades to start an Iraqi operation to liberate the northern city of Mosul in April or May, reports emerged suggesting US Marines will conduct a limited operation in the border area between Iraq, Syria, Jordan and Saudi Arabia to strike ISIS jihadists who control the border area.

“US forces have landed in al-Habbaniya air base,” said Saadon Shehan, a blogger from al-Ramadi, the provincial capital of al-Anbar province in western Iraq.

Charlie Hebdo: Niger protesters set churches on fire

Source: BBC News

At least two churches have been set on fire in the capital of Niger amid fresh protests against French magazine Charlie Hebdo's cartoon depicting the Prophet Muhammad.

Saturday's protests began outside Niamey's grand mosque with police using tear gas a day after at least four were killed in the second city of Zinder.

The French embassy has warned its citizens to stay indoors.

Last week, Islamist gunmen killed 12 people at the magazine's Paris offices.

. . .

In Niger, a former French colony, hundreds of demonstrators gathered at Niamey's grand mosque, shouting "God is Great" in Arabic.

At least two churches were set on fire - similar to Friday's demonstration in Zinder where protesters also raided shops that were run by Christians.

Waiving in the First Row


Waving in the first Row

THE THREE Islamic terrorists could have been very proud of themselves, if they had lived to see it.
By committing two attacks (quite ordinary ones by Israeli standards) they spread panic throughout France, brought millions of people onto the streets, gathered more than 40 heads of states in Paris. They changed the landscape of the French capital and other French cities by mobilizing thousands of soldiers and police officers to guard Jewish and other potential targets. For several days they dominated the news throughout the world.

AND WHO marched in the first row, beaming like a victor? Our own and only Bibi.

. . .

Placed in the second row, he did what Israelis do: he shoved aside a black African president in front of him and placed himself in the front row.

Once there, he began waving to the people on the balconies along the way. He was beaming, like a Roman general in his triumphal parade. One can only guess the feelings of Hollande and the other heads of state – who tried to look appropriately solemn and mournful – at this display of Chutzpah.
Netanyahu went to Paris as part of his election campaign. As a veteran campaigner, he knew that three days in Paris, visiting synagogues and making proud Jewish speeches, were worth more than three weeks at home, slinging mud.

THE BLOOD of the four Jews murdered in the kosher supermarket was not yet dry, when Israeli leaders called upon the Jews in France to pack up and come to Israel. Israel, as everybody knows, is the safest place on earth.
