BREAKING: Many DEAD, At Least 30 Victims So Far In Horrific Manhattan Attack – Here’s What We Know

Published

on

It’s not even Halloween night but the horror has already begun to unfold in Manhattan, New York this afternoon, leaving multiple people dead so far and at least 30 injured just a few blocks from the World Trade Center. One person is now in custody and information is starting to look like a potential terror attack.

Witnesses are revealing that they saw and it’s getting worse by the second as eyewitness accounts continue to come out.

This was PIX 11 News live coverage of the terror attack in lower Manhattan. Get the latest here: http://via.pix11.com/VfwIr

Posted by PIX 11 on Tuesday, October 31, 2017

New York Daily News reports:

A number of people were shot near Stuyvesant High School Tuesday afternoon, police said, and one person was taken into custody.

Police were investigating reports of up to four people shot dead.

Witness Frank Brito, 45, told the Daily News he saw two trucks crash into each other and then a heavy set man get out of one in a blue tracksuit and chase someone, firing five or six times.

Reports of an active shooter came in about 3 p.m.

“Oh my god I just heard gun shots and ran with my dog,” pop singer Josh Groban tweeted. “Downtown. F—.”

“I work on chambers street,” el_dorado91 tweeted. “Shots came from Chambers and West Street. Someone who was eyewitness said cab driver fired shots.”

The Daily Mail explains more as witnesses express the horror they saw on Twitter:

At least one officer has been shot and is expected to make a recovery. The details of other injuries are not known.  

Singer Josh Groban also tweeted after hearing ‘gun shots‘ while out walking his dog. “Oh my god I just heard gun shots and ran with my dog. Downtown. F***,” he said. 

Simultaneous reports of the same incident suggested that a truck drove into the bicycle lane and mowed down cyclists and pedestrians.  

Others ran for their lives as they watched the truck plow into pedestrians after veering off the road. 

“I saw the car crash so I ran up the bridge,” a witness at the scene told PIX11’s Myles Miller. 

“When I ran up the bridge, I saw this dude with two guns. The guy with the two guns, for some reason, was running around. He was getting chased. And then all of the sudden, four shots went off and we all just started running.”

“A car just ran over 2 people and then crashed into a school bus, one person on scene tweeted. I see two dead bodies and Citibikes on the floor destroyed.” 

The NYPD could not give further detail immediately on Tuesday afternoon. 

Shocking video footage from the scene showed cyclists lying on the ground with their bikes smashed in to pieces around them. 

By-passers were seen tending to them as they awaited medical attention. 

Within minutes of the first reports, there was an enormous police and fire service presence at the site.  

Initial reports say the deadly driver was a Muslim cab driver although that has yet to be confirmed. For now, one person is in custody after what appears to be a deliberate attack. The motive has yet to be known and we will continue to update on this attack as more information unfolds.

This is now the second deliberate attack today on a crowd of people, which can’t be ironic given the Halloween holiday. The first took place last night when gunmen opened fire in a London nightclub.

Halloween poses a particularly terrifying threat for attack as it’s easy for assailants to disguise themselves and get away with mass murder in a crowd. That’s what a group of shooters just did overnight, dressed in clown and ghost masks, when armed with machine guns they went into a packed club in London, England where a rave was underway. Horrifying footage caught what happened next when they opened fire on everyone inside and showered the crowd with bullets. Then something really strange happened.

Express in the U.K. reports:

Gunmen dressed in Halloween masks opened fire on revelers at an illegal rave in London last night. Horrifying footage shows vile thugs dressed in clowns and ghost masks using automatic weapons to unleash a shower of bullets on clubbers leaving a man and woman seriously injured.

The video also shows the shock moment a man returns fire with a handgun. A 41-year-old man was shot in the leg, and a woman in her twenties in the chest, at the Money Move party in Leyton, East London, during the fracas. Police have confirmed the man is in a stable condition, and the female victim did not suffer life-threading injuries.

It’s strange but incredible that with that many people in close contact that everyone was relatively spared inside, save for the two that were injured – but not a single death. Even the injuries were not as detrimental as they could have been but that doesn’t make the attack any less frightening. The report explains more as well as some alarming discoveries of the incident.

A nearby business owner told the Sun: “It looked like it was a gangland execution gone wrong”. One clubber said they saw “at least four guns” being used during the horror attack. They said around 100 people trapped inside as the gunmen had blocked off the road with a car, stopping party goers from fleeing.

Video of the aftermath of the attack shows a woman using a belt as a tourniquet on a wounded man.

“Officers, including firearms officers, attended the scene and discovered a 41-year-old man with a gunshot wound to his left leg.“He has been conveyed to an east London hospital by London Ambulance Service where his condition is described as stable.“Officers were then made aware of a female, believed to be in her 20s, who had self-presented at another east London hospital with a gunshot wound to the chest. Her condition is described as not life-threatening or life-changing.“A crime scene was put in place and an investigation has been launched by Trident officers.”The venue, on an industrial estate, is reportedly used as an African church but is often hired out for raves.The shooters have not been identified, however, London has become a hotbed of hate for Islamic terror after the U.K. has allowed Muslim refugees into their country in droves. Much of Europe is unrecognizable as it now looks like the Middle East. London has become a target for repeat terror attacks and it’s been reported that the Islamic State was particularly impressed by what Vegas shooter Paddock pulled off and wasn’t shy about their plans to replicate his mode of operation. This only increased the terror warning to avoid massive open-air gatherings.Despite the fact that this similar attack didn’t take place on our soil, there’s no stopping it from occurring here. It’s probably not “if” it will happen here, but “when.” The FBI concealing crucial information on this and refusing to speak on the massacre moving forward dismantles citizens’ faith in the system and that we’re protected. One has to wonder what they are hiding and why and it’s a pretty concerning thing that copycat attacks are already taking place and this London one was probably just a trial one for what’s coming to America.

BREAKING!! TRUMP PISSED! Gowdy Just Exposed ‘Secret Society’ Plotting Trump Assassination

IT KEEPS GETTING WORSE!!!

Published

on

It should come as no great surprise that President Trump has a lot of opponents in Washington. To be fair, they made their positions clear long before he took office, and have been sticking to them ever since. The opposition was made even clearer with the Russia collusion investigation that has been launched and drug out for the past year. Many of us hoped that even though the left was violently opposed to President Trump and many of his policies, they wouldn’t actually resort to violence to silence him. We might have been wrong.

It’s a perfectly legal recourse for a party who doesn’t believe in a candidate or President to check him or her out thoroughly and see if there are any inconsistencies that can be exploited for the purpose of removing them from office. What isn’t perfectly legal is having forces within the Justice Department set about falsifying evidence, or withholding it from a congressional probe, but that is just what’s been happening.

The FBI was supposed to be investigating President Trump’s campaign, but when it became clear that they were compromised, Congress started to investigate some of the members of that special investigation. What they found was proof positive that many laws were broken in an effort to keep President Trump from office. Leading the charge against the injustices in the FBI is former prosecutor and current Representative Trey Gowdy along with Representative John Ratcliffe. According to Real Clear Politics, they informed Fox News that this information could spell the end of some careers on Capitol Hill:

“Reps. Trey Gowdy and John Ratcliffe join FNC’s Martha McCallum to talk about another newly released text message between FBI agents Peter Strzok and Lisa Page. This time, Strzok implies a “secret society” of federal agents worked to prevent Donald Trump from becoming president.

‘It is possible these text messages that are missing, perhaps they really were lost. Perhaps it is another strange coincidence,’ Ratcliffe said. “It is harder and harder for us to explain one strange coincidence after another.”

‘We know that Strzok and Page had an intense anti-Trump bias,’ he said. ‘And that’s OK, so long as they check it at the door and do their job. We learned today in the thousands of text messages we have reviewed, that perhaps they may not have done that. We know about this ‘insurance policy’ that was referenced trying to prevent Donald Trump from becoming president.’

Ratcliffe continued: ‘We learned today about information that in the immediate aftermath of his election, there may have been a ‘secret society’ of folks within the Department of Justice and the FBI, to include Page and Strzok, working against him. I’m not saying that actually happened, but when folks speak in those terms, they need to come forward to explain the context.’

About the ‘secret society,’ Gowdy said: ‘You have this insurance policy in Spring 2016, and then the day after the election, what they really didn’t want to have happen, there is a text exchange between these two FBI agents, these supposed to be fact-centric FBI agents saying, ‘Perhaps this is the first meeting of the secret society.’ So I’m going to want to know what secret society you are talking about, because you’re supposed to be investigating objectively the person who just won the electoral college. So yeah — I’m going to want to know.’

The evidence that these two bring paints a scary picture as to what has been happening behind closed doors. We trust those in law enforcement to look out for the best interests of the nation. This is just the opposite; they seem to be looking for their own best interests, and the laws and will of the people are no more than an after thought, or a punishment to be avoided.

According to Your News Wire “The inspector general also discovered that the FBI ‘failed to preserve’ five months worth of Strzok-Page texts for a crucial period in the Russia investigation — from Dec. 14, 2016 to May 17, 2017. Considering the explosive information revealed by Gowdy and Ratcliffe regarding one of the text messages, it has become clear the FBI is attempting to cover its tracks.

Gowdy, the chairman of the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee, vowed to investigate the text messages further.

‘I’m going to want to know what secret society are you talking about because you are supposed to be investigating objectively the person who just won the electoral college. I‘m going to want to know,’ he said on Fox.

In a tweet on Monday, Ratcliffe said that his review of the Strzok-Page texts ‘revealed manifest bias among top FBI officials’ against Trump.”

The DNC pushed for this investigation into Russian collusion, and it was the worst possible move they could have made. From the perspective of the mainstream media or any of the powers that be in Congress, they could have carried on and hinted and pushed the narrative without the investigation, but they didn’t. They were just so sure that he was guilty, so sure that he had to play the same dirty, colluded gamed that they were playing, that they had to have transparency. Well, they got their transparency, and when they did, we all got to see the dirty underbelly of how the liberals fight their political battles.

HILLARY And OBAMA Go Into HIDING After SHOCKING TOPICS Of MEMO Released! HOLY CRAP THIS IS HUGE!!

THIS IS BLOWING UP!!

Published

on

In what is one of the most terrifying, but not surprising, interviews ever to come out of the political arena. Republican Representative Paul Gosar from the great state of Arizona is now suggesting that the Obama administration had indeed weaponized the executive branch in pursuit of partisan political purposes.

Congressman Gosar came to this conclusion after reading a classified four-page memo which was composed by Republican Congressman Devin Nunes from California. Nunez, who chairs the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence, claimed that in the memo Gosar described serious abuse of executive power as a habit across the Obama administration, the Justice Department, the CIA and the FBI. The memo is yet to be released to the public.

Gosar linked the following Obama-era operations and events as prime examples of a pattern of the highly partisan weaponization of the executive branch by Obama and his lackeys. The Fast and Furious gun-running operation, the handling response and coverup of the September 11, 2012, Islamic terrorist attack on the diplomatic compound in Benghazi where 4 lives were lost including that of our ambassador to Libya, the IRS’s targeting of dissident charities and non-profits such as the Tea Party, and the surveillance of persons connected to Donald Trump’s presidential campaign and Donald Trump himself.

Partial Transcripts Below:

MANSOUR: I want to pivot really quickly to this infamous #ReleaseTheMemo hashtag about the memo that the House Intelligence Committee Chairman wrote about, explaining what was going on with the FISA warrants that were issued by the Obama administration. Can you tell us – I know that you’ve read the memo, it hasn’t, obviously, been released to the public – what can you tell us about how this memo came about and what’s in it?

GOSAR: Well, this memo is a summary of emails and traffic that has been picked up by the intelligence and judiciary systems. Some of it is exactly what you may have seen that has been exposed to the sunlight already. Other things may not. But what it basically does is, that, if you don’t think that Fast and Furious, if you don’t think that Benghazi, for the lack of accountability, if you don’t think the IRS, and if you don’t think the unmasking has something to do with the weaponization of our Department of Justice and our intelligence services, think again.

MANSOUR: Wow. Okay. What is the likelihood that this memo with be released by Congressman Nunes?

GOSAR: In our conference, there is a heated debate about when, not if, and we want it out sooner than later. The American people need to see this. There are other things associated with it because this is just the tip of the iceberg. It names names, and those names, they should be owed their day in country, but if it is what’s presented, there are some heads that need to go to jail and not come out for quite some time.

Gosar reiterated his description of the aforementioned pattern of partisan political weaponization of the executive branch when asked about former U.S. Ambassador Samantha Power’s requests for “unmasking” American citizens’ identities captured via FISA surveillance operations, among whom were “Trump associates.”

And He Added:

POLLAK: Let me ask you this: there were some reports over the last year, and we actually were part of reporting this, that there were a number of individuals in the Obama administration who had requested the unmasking of the identities of Americans who were swept up in foreign wiretaps. And Samantha Power, the former ambassador to the United Nations, who doesn’t really have a national security function, had conducted a large number of these unmasking requests. Are we going to learn more about that? Are we going to see into the operation of the outgoing administration and why they did what they did?

GOSAR: Joel, I’m going to be very careful. I’m not an attorney, but if you don’t think that Fast and Furious, if you don’t think that Benghazi, for the lack of accountability, if you don’t think the IRS and the unmasking are tied together with the weaponization of our Department of Justice and political advocates, think again.

POLLAK: Wow. So this could relate back to those controversies, as well?

GOSAR: Here’s the thing. If you look at Fast and Furious, Joel, this was about one of the most precious and most instrumental aspects of individuals to hold a government accountable: having the Second Amendment. If you can take that, if you can lack the accountability that popped up with Benghazi, where you didn’t protect American citizens and those in harm’s way, if you can target your opposition with the IRS and then you can unmask them with anybody and then spread that information – not just unmask them, but spread that information to all other agencies and top brass – now, what you’ve got is the beginnings of a Banana Republic. That means that you have an autocratic demise to the democracy and to the republic and hold your political foes to their detriment.

Listen to the interview.

This is what happens when the American people get suckered into electing a nobody who came out of nowhere as their president. All because of his skin color, nothing else. Barack Hussein Obama is a man who has never even run a lemonade stand until the day he decided to run for office. And he never stood out in anything other than knowing how to read a speech well enough that the liberal population in our country could fall for him unconditionally. And now we learn he is what President Nixon could have only dreamed of being.

Please share if you want to see the Obama Administration investigated…

BREAKING!!! FBI Goes Into TOTAL MELTDOWN After Trump Discovers Hidden Messages

THIS IS TOTAL TREASON!

Published

on

President Trump has promised to drain the swamp, and even though the left takes extreme offense to that analogy, the more things we learn about what has gone on in the White House while Obama was in office, the more fitting that word picture becomes.

The exchange of power between the Obama administration and the Trump administration was more than just people moving out of offices and new people taking their place. Obama had 8 years to put his people all over Washington, not just the White House. So even though the new administration has been in office for a little over a year now, it’s far from a slam dunk when it comes to having friendly faces all around. Everywhere from the Justice Department all the way down the aides shuffling paperwork, there are still holdouts whose loyalty is to Obama.

Those holdouts mean that even though the President and both houses of Congress are Republican, there are still enough Democrats around who are willing to risk their job for the greater good, that the wheels of justice are constantly being bogged down. Case in point; the Congressional probe into the FBI and it’s dealing of the Russia collusion case.

Even though it was mandated that the FBI turn over certain documents and communications, it turns out that they’ve decided in their own wisdom to hide some of it. They didn’t do a great job though because the file that should have held months of text messages between a disgraced FBI agent and his lover (who also worked for the FBI) was completely empty. Western Journalism reports that when those text messages are recovered, then we could all see why they tried to hide it:

“Peter Strzok and Lisa Page are in the spotlight for their text messages. Again.

This time, a newly released trove of messages revealed that the agent who led the FBI probe into Hillary Clinton’s emails and the bureau lawyer (who was also the agent’s mistress) both felt they knew the outcome of the email investigation before Clinton had even been interviewed.

According to Fox News, an exchange from July 1, 2016, revealed that days after it was discovered that then-Attorney General Loretta Lynch had a meeting with Bill Clinton on a Phoenix airport tarmac, Lynch knew there would be no charges filed in the investigation.

The exchange came after Lynch said she would accept the findings of the FBI in the matter.

‘Timing looks like hell,’ Strzok said in a text to Page.

‘Yeah, that is awful timing,’ Page said. ‘It’s a real profile in courage (sic), since she knows no charges will be brought.’

The texts were among 384 pages of messages from Strzrok and Page that were turned over to the Senate Homeland Security Committee.

However, FBI officials notified committee chairman Sen. Rob Johnson of Wisconsin that texts between Dec. 14, 2016 and May 17, 2017, were lost by the bureau.

‘The Department wants to bring to your attention that the FBI’s technical system for retaining text messages sent and received on FBI mobile devices failed to preserve text messages for Mr. Strzok and Ms. Page.'”

That little story leaves us with only a couple of explanations; first would be that the FBI is grossly incompetent and literally lost months worth of evidence in an ongoing investigation (maybe that’s the one we should hope for) second is that they’re stupid enough to think that Congress would believe that lie, and the third (and sadly, most probably, given their history) would be that they’re corrupt enough to just try to hold onto them long enough to get the outcome that they want. None of those options inspire confidence, in fact, they support the President’s wish to get rid of a lot of the Obama holdouts.

“Stephen Boyd, assistant attorney general for legislative affairs at the Justice Department, said in a letter to Johnson.

Boyd blamed ‘misconfiguration issues related to rollouts, provisioning, and software upgrades that conflicted with the FBI’s collection capabilities,’ according to The Daily Caller.

‘The result was that data that should have been automatically collected and retained for long-term storage and retrieval was not collected.’

However, the dates are significant, in that May 17, 2017, was the day that Robert Mueller was appointed as special counsel and the period also covers the Trump transition, including when the president-elect was informed of the existence of the controversial ‘Trump dossier.’

‘The loss of records from this period is concerning,’ Johnson, a Republican, said in a letter sent Saturday to FBI Director Christopher Wray.

Strzok’s text messages with Page have come under increasing scrutiny ever since it became clear they contained more than just epithets directed toward the man who would become president. In one somewhat cryptic message, Strzok said the FBI should have an ‘insurance policy’ against a Trump win.

‘I want to believe the path you threw out for consideration in Andy’s office — that there’s no way (Trump) gets elected — but I’m afraid we can’t take that risk,’ Strzok texted on Aug. 15, 2016, referring to FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe.

‘It’s like an insurance policy in the unlikely event you die before you’re 40.’

That ‘insurance policy’ has become one of the focuses of the Republican investigation into whether or not there was any untoward behavior on Strzok’s part. Now, however, it could take a backseat to the alleged fact the top investigator on the Hillary case knew the outcome before she was interviewed.”

We might not ever get a straight answer as to why these messages were withheld, but one thing is for sure; if the goal was to take attention off of them, it was wildly unsuccessful.
