BREAKING: Possible Terror Attack In South Carolina With Multiple Injuries – Here’s What Cops Have Just Announced

This is bad!

Published

Breaking News from South Carolina!

Although reports are sketchy at this point police in Colombia, South Carolina have said multiple people were injured in this morning when a vehicle, which was reported to have been driven by an elderly man ran into a crowd gathered at a cemetery in Columbia, South Carolina today.

This all happened at the Greenlawn cemetery located at 7100 Garners Ferry Road in Columbia South Carolina as mourners were attending a funeral procession.

Witnesses reported that there was a large police response and at least eight people were taken to local area hospitals. Thankfully none of the injuries are believed to be life-threatening.

Deputy Police Chief Melron Kelly said, “We cannot tell if there’s initial intent.” He then added that they will try to get information from the driver shortly, but at the moment he was being treated for injuries himself.

Kiplinger Reports:

As a group, seniors age 80 and older have the highest rate of fatal crashes per mile driven — even higher than for teens — according to the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety. Simply put, too many people continue driving when it’s no longer safe for them to do so.

Vision problems, slower reactions and other effects of aging increase the risk of crashes. But most state legislatures ignore the problem. In Virginia, where I live, the only nod toward aging drivers’ safety is a required vision test after age 80, but licenses are good for eight years. Only 19 states make seniors renew their licenses more often than younger drivers. Half of those states cut eight- to ten-year renewal periods down to four to six years — only Illinois and New Mexico require annual renewal. Illinois is the only state to mandate that drivers retake the road test as they age.

Driving represents independence and freedom, in addition to providing mobility, and politicians aren’t eager to take on seniors by making driver’s-license renewals more stringent. If you have ever approached a spouse, parent or friend about giving up driving, you can appreciate why. But state lawmakers largely sidestep the issue, so it’s up to families to take action when a loved one is no longer a safe driver.

The right approach. If you suspect that an older family member’s driving skills have seriously deteriorated, take a ride with him. Note whether he has trouble judging gaps in traffic, following traffic signals and road signs, maneuvering or parking the car, or remembering the route. If there’s a problem, “address it head-on,” says Jake Nelson, director of traffic safety advocacy and research at AAA. “Most people wait until after a crash and it’s too late,” he says. But you should act before an accident occurs.

Choose the most appropriate person in your family to broach the subject. Miriam Zucker, a geriatric care manager, suggests starting with the positives, emphasizing safety and perhaps the need to back off driving because of a medical condition. Say something like, “Dad, you’ve been a safe driver for 60 years, but with your cataracts, I know it’s harder for you to drive at night. If you got hurt or hurt someone else, that would be awful.” Unless it’s clear the driver is unsafe all the time, suggest limiting driving to daytime hours — and perhaps staying off highways.

Before you have the conversation, investigate transportation options in your area and their cost. Calculate how much money your family member would save by driving less or not at all, and point out that the savings could be used for other ways of getting around.

When an aging parent resists giving up driving, some families resort to disabling the car or hiding the keys. But it’s better to let the state department of motor vehicles make the decision. Often, the best way to make that happen is to take your case to your parent’s doctor. “Let the physician be the bad guy,” says Sharon Brangman, chief of geriatrics at Upstate Medical University, in Syracuse, N.Y.

Rules governing physicians, however, vary from state to state. In some, including New York, doctors can’t contact the DMV regarding a patient without the patient’s permission. In others, such as New Jersey, doctors are required to report patients they don’t believe should be behind the wheel anymore. (To see the laws in your state and more information about elder driving safety, go to SeniorDriving.AAA.com.)

A report to the DMV may trigger a review of your parent’s driving record or an order to retest the driver. It could also lead to a health evaluation. Depending on where you live, the report may be anonymous. If all else fails, you may have to obtain guardianship over your parent and get a court order to prevent him from driving, says Shirley Whitenack, a lawyer in New Jersey who specializes in elder-care law.

Let’s hope and pray this wasn’t intentional and it was only a case of a driver who shouldn’t have been behind the wheel. Driving errors can lead to traffic accidents, injuries, and even death. The risk of crashes does increase with age, especially with people over the age of 80. Studies have shown that older drivers are more likely to be involved in certain types of crashes than younger drivers. But at the same time, older drivers are less likely to be involved in crashes related to alcohol use, speeding, drugs, and driving at night. But they are more likely to get into fender benders at intersections where the front end of one vehicle hits the side of another vehicle and where the older driver is merging and the other vehicle is traveling faster or is in the older driver’s blind spot.

Please share in hopes that this was only an accident….

ALERT: US Marine Patrolling US Border Has A Terrifying Warning For Americans After What He Found

Liberals did this to our country & they should pay!

Published

on

To all of you out there who think those of us who supported, and voted for, then candidate Donald Trump because we are xenophobic and racist, here is your wake up call. A former United States Marine Patrolling the Mexico-Texas Border has a chilling message for you and all Americans.

“In an interview with Dennis Michael Lynch, a former U.S. Marine who served in the Middle East is now an active member of a border group that patrols the southern border. He is a former bomb expert trained by the Department of Defense. Known to his pals as “Talon,” he shared his thoughts about the “other than Mexicans” that have been coming through the border for years.

“The Chinese and Middle Eastern people coming through the border are not coming here to cut our lawns and wash dishes. They hate us with a passion,” said Talon. When referring to the Muslims who hate the U.S. he said, “We are the infidels and they think we deserve to die.”

DML asked him how long until another 9/11? Talon answered, “I’m shocked it hasn’t happened yet. Let me tell you that once they figure out how to get a nuke through the border, we will lose a U.S. city.”

There are congressional reports that reveal the drug cartels work with terror groups from the Middle East.”

All this isn’t news to those of us already living in border states. We see what’s coming in on a daily basis. Our cities are being overrun by gang crime like never before. The best of the best doesn’t just walk across our borders. These aren’t children with “Divinity in their Eyes” as Nancy Pelosi calls them. Since President Trump’s inauguration, there has been a sharp decrease in illegals crossing the border illegally, but we won’t be secure until the wall is built and we are able to stop them completely.

Last week Attorney General Jeff Sessions sent official letters to the 9 different cities, counties and the whole state of California ordering them to stop the madness and let The Department of Homeland Security and ICE do their job. If not they will be punished by ceasing to send these 9 entities federal funds. I know my home state of California can’t survive long on its own although liberals and loony politicians actually believe it can. Maybe legalizing Marihuana in this state wasn’t such a great idea after all.

To all you Liberals out there, please, stop with the finger pointing and accusations. This isn’t about being bigoted, Islamophobic, Xenophobic, or whatever “phobic” you want to invent next. It’s about our very survival of as a nation, as a culture and as a people.  If you need to, pretend the bad people slipping in through the border are Christians and Jews. I’m sure if they were you would have no issue whatsoever in building a wall to stop them, but please to play with our security and very existence only because you believe in the madness that is Political Correctness.

Obama Goes Hiding After What Traitor Bowe Bergdahl Just Told Military Court About What Happened To Him

Published

on

In 2014, former President Barack Obama traded five of the worst terrorists in GITMO for Bowe Bergdahl, the Army deserter who walked off his base in Afghanistan in 2009. This prisoner exchange was immediately criticized by conservatives and many others considering the ramifications of Bergdahl’s actions.

In case anyone forgot, when Bergdahl abandoned his post in 2009, six brave men went out in search for him and ended up dying in their efforts to save Bergdahl who they thought was forcefully captured. Now, after three years, Bergdahl is facing the consequences of his actions and has agreed to plead guilty to desertion on Monday. However, even though Bergdahl has agreed to this deal that has not stopped him from talking and what he is saying now has Barack Obama running scared.

After three years, the Bowe Bergdahl saga will finally come to an end on Monday when he is sentenced for deserting his post in 2009. The case of Bergdahl has angered Americans for the last three years considering the controversy that swirled around his capture and his return home. After Bergdahl walked off his post, his plan was not to return to his Army base, but the six brave men who went out to search for him were not aware of his treason and were killed looking for him, which Bergdahl does not seem to be all that upset about.

Six soldiers died while searching for Bowe Bergdahl.

Bergdahl spent five years with the Taliban before Barack Obama traded five terrorist generals for the deserter’s release. After the trade was complete, the American people learned more about Bergdahl and his cowardly deeds while in supposed “captivity”.

In 2014, Fox News reported that during Bergdahl’s captivity he converted to Islam, consorted openly with the enemy, and declared himself a “mujahid” which means a warrior for Islam. If that was not bad enough, what Bergdahl is saying now while he is awaiting sentencing is even more upsetting and proves what a raw deal Obama agreed to.

Bergdahl is now claiming that the Taliban terrorists were more “honest” with him than the U.S. Army has been since negotiating his release in 2009.

Well, maybe the reason that the Army is not telling Bergdahl that much is because he spent five years with the Taliban and is pleading guilty to being a deserter, right? 

Here is more from Fox News:

Bowe Bergdahl, the U.S. Army sergeant who pleaded guilty Monday to deserting his post in Afghanistan in 2009, says his Taliban captors were more “honest” with him than the Army has been since his release three years ago.

“At least the Taliban were honest enough to say, ‘I’m the guy who’s gonna cut your throat,’ ” Bergdahl tells British TV journalist Sean Langan in an interview with the Sunday Times Magazine of London headlined “The Homecoming from Hell.”

Langan, too, is a former Taliban hostage.

Bergdahl, 31, from Hailey, Idaho, says he never quite knew where he stood with the Army as he performed “administrative duties” while awaiting his desertion trial.

“Here, it could be the guy I pass in the corridor who’s going to sign the paper that sends me away for life,’’ he says. “We may as well go back to kangaroo courts and lynch mobs.”

Bergdahl is expected to appear for sentencing Monday in a military courtroom in Fort Bragg, N.C., after pleading guilty to desertion and misbehavior before the enemy.

He could face life in prison.

Bergdahl was freed from the Taliban in May 2014 in a highly criticized deal in which the Obama administration agreed that the U.S. would release five Taliban terrorists in exchange.

President Donald Trump harshly criticized Bergdahl during the 2016 presidential campaign.

Army Col. Jeffery R. Nance is the judge who will decide Bergdahl’s fate. Factors expected to weigh into the sentence are Bergdahl’s years spent as a hostage, and the serious wounds that some U.S. service members suffered while searching for Bergdahl.

While the Bowe Bergdahl case is wrapping up finally, it does beg the question what should happen to Barack Obama for allowing this prisoner exchange to take place. When Obama traded the release of Bergdahl and set free some of the worst terrorists in GITMO back into the world, he put everyone in danger. If anyone should be on trial and face treasonous charges for their actions that should also include Barack Obama for this disgusting deal that he orchestrated. Five dangerous individuals have been released back into the world who will only cause more innocent deaths in the name of jihad. And, what did we get in return? A deserter with no honor that has no remorse for his actions, and who still sympathizes with the enemy.

Somehow, whatever Bergdahl’s sentence is, it will never be harsh enough for what he did.

BREAKING: Warning Issued To All Americans Overnight Of ‘Mass Casualty’ Event Planned – Here’s What We Know

Published

on

America might be distracted with the problems at hand, but we never forget that we are a country at war. No matter what happens on a day to day basis, we always remember that we as a nation were violently attacked over sixteen years ago and it’s a score that we haven’t settled yet because terrorism hasn’t been wiped out.

The rise of the politically correct movement and it’s acceptance of “non-radical Muslims” has somehow allowed them to worm their way into many places that they shouldn’t be, such as government. That is especially troubling, considering that the threat from the Islamic faith and it’s admonitions to kill is, is far from past.

In fact, according to top administration officials, the smaller attacks that we’ve been seeing in recent months are just a ploy to keep their members appeased while they plan a 9/11 scale attack. Daily Mail  reports that one a U.S. security chief is warning not just all of us, but other countries as well, to be vigilant:

Islamic State fanatics and other terror groups are planning another massive attack on the scale of 9/11, a top US security chief warned today.

Elaine Duke, Donald Trump’s acting Secretary of Homeland Security, said jihadists were using crude knife and van attacks to keep their members engaged and their finances flowing as they plot another ‘big explosion’ similar to the September 2001 atrocities.

Speaking at the US embassy in London, she said intelligence is pointing to extremists plotting to take down planes to inflict mass civilian casualties.”

While the United States hasn’t suffered an attack on the same scale as 9/11 since that day, we have watched the terrorists grow both in number and boldness across the globe. Our war on terror in the Middle East might have overthrown some open leaders, but for every open leader that threatens the United States and is eliminated, there are three more willing to take his place in the “holy war crusade.”

“Mrs. Duke said ISIS is currently in an ‘interim’ period focusing on a much bigger endgame.

The security chief, who has served three US presidents, said: ‘The terrorist organisations, be it ISIS or others, want to have the big explosion like they did on 9/11. They want to take down aircraft, the intelligence is clear on that.

‘However, in the interim, they need to keep their finances flowing and they need to keep their visibility high and they need to keep their members engaged, so they are using small plots and they are happy to have small plots.’

She added: ‘Creating terror is their goal and so a van attack, a bladed weapon attack, causes terror and continues to disrupt the world – but does not mean they’ve given up on a major aviation plot.’”

Islamic State fanatics and other terror groups are planning another massive attack on the scale of 9/11, a top US security chief warned

If you’ve gone through airport security lately, you know that the Transportation Security Administration has cracked down on possible threats in a big way since way back in 2001 when we were first faced with this problem. The issue at hand is that no matter how much we increase security, human ingenuity increases with it.

According to Duke, who is President Trump’s acting Secretary of Homeland Security, there’s even a distinct possibility that any plan could be blown up using a laptop, and that’s just one of the many possibilities that she mentioned.

“She said the free movement of goods and people means security has to be tightened in individual countries around the world. 

She said: ‘The laptop is one of the many aviation threats, we will never be comfortable and we will always be evolving.

‘What we believe is that because of the movement of goods and people, we have to raise the baseline worldwide, we can’t only consider our borders.’ Mrs. Duke went on: ‘We think the level of terrorist threat against the United States too is extremely high.

‘I think that it is challenging for you because you have the proximities to other countries, the ease of movement from some of the terrorist safe havens is a little easier for you, but we feel the terrorist threat is very high in the United States.’”

The troubling thing about Duke’s statements isn’t “why or how,” but  when. She believes that another large-scale attack is going to be coming to us soon. We might not see it coming. This is the big reason that the United States, and other free countries like it, need to crack down on potential terrorists

This is the big reason that the United States, and other free countries like it, need to crack down on potential terrorists entering our countries. We can only be free if that freedom is respected; if we don’t protect the freedom, it will be taken either by those who want to kill us or those who want to control us. Either way, the freedom of living in America is a precious gift that is in jeopardy every single day.

Here’s more from our source on what is know about the possible impending attacks:

“Asked how the US is tackling the threat of another 9/11-style atrocity, she said: ‘We have worked on some strong measures that we can’t talk about. We are trying to play the away game and that is working against them in their terrorist safe havens and homes.

‘We do have some terrorist groups on the move, you just saw the take-over of Raqqa and so if we can keep them declining and moving they have less time to sit and prepare.’

Mrs. Duke warned that the number of home-grown violent extremists, mostly inspired by terrorist organisations, is increasing in the US. She said the ability of IS militants to put terrorist propaganda on the internet will appeal more and more to extremists as they are pushed out of Syria and Iraq.

Mrs. Duke said web giants need to do more to detect extremist content online, and one way of doing this could be using the same technology used to identify people in passenger lists.

‘Terrorists are strong, they are adaptable and the terrorist threat is the highest it has been since pre-9/11. We have got to have every tool that’s possible,’ she added.

A total of 2,996 people were killed during the September 11 attacks, when al-Qaeda suicide attackers hijacked planes and flew them into the World Trade Center in New York and the Pentagon in Washington.

Earlier in the day, she met the British interior minister Amber Rudd to discuss how to force internet giants to do more to tackle terrorism ahead of the G7 summit.

Following the recent wave of attacks in Manchester and London, police chiefs have said the threat facing the UK is a ‘new norm’ that will not change. 

Her chilling remarks came 24 hours after MI5 director general Andrew Parker warned Britain is facing its worst-ever terrorist threat in his first major speech since the UK was hit by a wave of attacks. 

The British spy chief said it was taking terrorists just days to hatch plots as violent extremists exploit ‘safe spaces online’ to evade detection. 

It is harder for the UK to protect itself because of its proximity to other countries and the ease of movement from terrorist safe havens, she suggested.”
