Another Terror Attack. No Guns Needed

Where is the outcry against delivery trucks? Vehicles as weapons: Muenster crash part of a deadly trend – CNN

This time, it was in Muenster, Germany, where police said several people were killed and at least a dozen seriously injured Saturday after a delivery truck slammed into people.
Authorities are treating the incident as a deliberate attack, according to a police spokeswoman.

Since they have few details about the attack in Muenster, Germany, they provide a list of all the vehicle attacks over the past few years.

How Do You “Crash Through” the Gate at a US Military Base?

There are well established ways to stop a vehicle. Why aren’t we using them? Travis AFB explosion: New details in possible attempted attack at Travis Air Force Base in California – CBS News

A car loaded with propane tanks ran through the main gate at Travis Air Force Base in northern California on Wednesday night. Military personnel ran up to the burning car that exploded in flame after breaching the security gates.

This is beyond stupid in this era of terror attacks. Every base should be secure.

The main gate at Travis was closed for 12 hours after the incident and officials say there is no known threat to the base or the community.

I would say it’s the unknown threats that they need to consider.

So Does 3 People Shot Count as a Mass-shooting?

Or does it only count if it happens in the US? I can never remember what the rules are. Three killed in France in shooting, supermarket hostage-taking

French President Emmanuel Macron said the incident appeared to be a terrorist attack and security forces were securing the area.

The first clue was that he was screaming God is Great in Arabic. So you figure it out. (I wonder what other evidence that it is terror Macron is waiting for?)

The gun laws in France make the whole country basically a defenseless victim zone, so a gunman (here’s a hint, I doubt he had a license for that weapon) has clear fields of fire until the cops show up. And when seconds count, police are minutes away.

The US Media is “Mystified” By the Vienna Attacks

An Afghan national goes on a rampage in a part of Vienna known to have “much of the city’s Jewish community,” but the media can’t figure out why. Four hurt in Viennese mystery stabbings

“According to witnesses a man attacked three people. All three were seriously injured and are in a life-threatening condition.

“Half an hour later, there was another attack and here a person was also seriously injured and their life is in danger.

The new head of the Austrian government, and his vice-chancellor are a bit less confused. Regierungsspitze entsetzt nach Wiener Blutnacht > Nachrichten > Österreich OR Head of government horrified after Vienna’s night of blood. Google translate does a fair job with German.

„Es ist furchtbar, dass sich mitten in Wien derartige Szenen abspielen.“ Gleichzeitig gratulierte der Vizekanzler der Exekutive zu ihrem raschen Fahndungserfolg. Solche Attacken seien leider auch eine der Folgen des unkontrollierten Zustroms von Migranten nach Österreich in den Jahren 2015/2016. „Genau deswegen arbeiten wir für eine restriktive Asyl- und Fremdenpolitik. Denn wer glaubt, er kann sich bei uns Asyl erschleichen, er kann das Asylrecht missbrauchen, er kann kriminell werden, Menschen nach Belieben verletzten oder gar töten, täuscht sich gewaltig“, betonte [Vizekanzler Heinz-Christian] Strache.

OR

“It’s terrible that such scenes take place in the middle of Vienna.” At the same time, the vice-chancellor congratulated the executive for their swift and successful search. Unfortunately, such attacks are also one of the consequences of the uncontrolled influx of migrants to Austria in 2015/2016. “That’s why we work for a restrictive asylum and foreign policy. For anyone who believes he can seek asylum with us, he can abuse the asylum law, he can become criminal, injure people at will or even kill, is deceiving himself tremendously, “stressed [Vice-Chancellor Heinz-Christian] Strache.

You should note that the Left HATES Kronen Zeitung. It is the largest paper in Austria, and they refuse to fall in line with the Leftists’ agenda.

Truth Is Finally In the Light

After years of denial, the truth about the travesty that Germany (and the rest of Europe) is becoming comes to light. Angela Merkel admits that ‘no-go zones’ exist in Germany | Fox News

Conservatives and populists have long warned of the existence of such zones as the partial consequence of mass Muslim migration from the Middle East and Africa, particularly after Merkel opened Germany’s borders in 2015 as a response to the Syrian refugee crisis. Such areas are said to be dogged by high-levels of crime and are described as “no-go zones” because outsiders, including police and other authorities, are unable to enter.

Now that Merkel has won what is probably the last election of her life, the truth can’t hurt her too much. Before now, she has comfortably lied to Europe and the world about what is happening.

The 1993 Attack on  the World Trade Center

World Trade Center as it was in 1993Today is the 25th anniversary of that first attack on the World Trade Center. The attack that everyone forgets about. Remembering the 1993 World Trade Center Bombing – History in the Headlines

(The linked article is from 5 years ago, so don’t be confused about the dates.)

Ignoring security recommendations has a long history in this country. And it isn’t just restricted to the world of computers and technology.

Safety concerns became apparent as early as 1975, when a disgruntled custodian set a fire in the north tower that caused millions of dollars in damages and prompted calls for the installation of a sprinkler system. A decade or so later, the government agency that owned the World Trade Center began examining possible terrorism threats. But it ended up ignoring many of its security team’s recommendations, including that public parking be eliminated or that cars at least be randomly inspected.

Neither of those recommendations were adopted, and so on February 26th, a van was parked in lower-level garage.

On February 26, 1993, the plotters loaded their homemade bomb, which weighed about 1,200 pounds, into a yellow Ford Econoline van they had rented from a Ryder dealership in New Jersey. Two of them then drove it across the Hudson River into Manhattan, made their way south to the World Trade Center, entered the basement parking garage between the north tower and a hotel, parked in an illegal spot on a ramp, lit four 20-foot fuses, got into a car that had trailed them and sped off.

The bomb exploded at 12:17. Click through to the article to see the aftermath. A lot of it mimicked the evacuation problems that would resurface in 2001.

CNN Won’t Let Hero Student Ask Questions. They Hand Him a Script

He declines to be part of their propaganda campaign. Florida Shooting Survivor: CNN Gave “Scripted Question” After Refusing Question About Armed Guards

It was a townhall meeting. He thought he would be able to ask his questions and give his opinions.

Colton Haab, a member of the Junior ROTC who shielded students while shots rang out, Local 10 news that he was going to ask a question about hiring veterans as armed security guards.

“CNN had originally asked me to write a speech and questions and it ended up being all scripted,” Haab told WPLG-TV. “I don’t think that it’s going get anything accomplished. It’s not gonna ask the true questions that all the parents and teachers and students have.”

Here’s a 38 second video clip of a news interview with Colton Haab.

Of course CNN is denying that they might be propagating fake news.
