Stephen Bannon (White Idiot, White Freemason, Zionist) boycotted Trump meet with ‘terrorist’ Abbas — report

Days after his ouster from the White House, the extent of the animosity between divisive strategist Steve Bannon and the president’s son-in-law Jared Kushner is steadily emerging in US media reports, with an article in Vanity Fair detailing their disputes and asserting that Bannon is now planning his “revenge.”

Bannon, a hero of the so-called “alt right” whose presence in the West Wing was controversial from the start, had become the nucleus of one of several competing power centers in a chaotic White House. During his six-month tenure as Trump’s chief strategist, Bannon and Kushner reportedly clashed on numerous policy issues, including the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.

According to a report in Vanity Fair online on Monday, Bannon aggressively lobbied Trump to fulfill his campaign promise to move the US embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem, and pushed the president to adopt a tougher stance toward Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas, moves Kushner opposed.

When Abbas met with Trump at the White House in May, Bannon boycotted the meeting in protest.

“I’m not going to breathe the same air as that terrorist,” he texted a friend at the time, according to the magazine.

Another point of contention between Bannon and Kushner was Trump’s response to the violent white supremacist rally in Charlottesville earlier this month.

With Trump under fire for insisting anti-racism protesters were equally to blame for violence at a weekend rally of neo-Nazis and white supremacists, the president faced renewed pressure to let Bannon go.

Bannon was the only West Wing staffer to publicly back Trump’s response, while Jared and Ivanka Trump disagreed with his tepid reaction to the racially charged violence.

Hours after he was fired, Bannon returned to his previous job as editor of the ultra-conservative Breitbart News, where he declared war on Ivanka, Kushner and fellow “globalist” Gary Cohn.

The Vanity Fair article was headlined: “Steve Bannon readies his revenge: The war on Jared Kushner is about to go nuclear.”

“He wants to beat their ideas into submission,” Breitbart News Editor-in-Chief Alex Marlow told Vanity Fair. “Steve has a lot of things up his sleeve.”

The following day, Breitbart’s leading story alleged Ivanka and her husband helped push Bannon out of the White House because “his far-right views clashed with their Jewish faith.”

Breitbart based the story on a Daily Mail report that cited anonymous “Washington sources.”

“Jared and Ivanka helped push him out. They were concerned about how they were being viewed by the Jewish community,” The Mail reported on Sunday.

On Monday, the White House denied the story to Breitbart, calling it “totally false.”

Bannon’s departure capped one of the most chaotic weeks for the administration, a nod to members of Trump’s government and his Republican Party who have grown increasingly frustrated with the anti-establishment firebrand.

It remains to be seen what role the serial provocateur will continue to play from outside the White House, but Bannon himself vowed to keep pushing Trump’s right-wing agenda, as he returned to Breitbart.

“If there’s any confusion out there, let me clear it up: I’m leaving the White House and going to war for Trump against his opponents — on Capitol Hill, in the media, and in corporate America,” Bannon said in an interview within hours of leaving the White House.

Trump welcomed Bannon’s return to Breitbart in a second tweet, predicting: “Steve Bannon will be a tough and smart new voice at @BreitbartNews… maybe even better than ever before. Fake News needs the competition!”

Police investigating Finland stabbing as terror attack

HELSINKI, Finland — Finnish police are now investigating a stabbing spree in Finland that left two people dead as a terrorist attack, police said Saturday, identifying the suspect as an 18-year-old Moroccan citizen.

“The act had been investigated as murder, but during the night we received additional information which indicates that the criminal offenses are now terrorist killings,” police said in a statement.

The suspect’s “identity is known to the police. He is an 18-year-old Moroccan citizen,” it said.

Police arrested five people in a Turku apartment overnight in their investigation into a stabbing rampage that left two people dead, they said.

Police shot and wounded a knife-wielding suspect on Friday, arresting him minutes after an afternoon stabbing spree at a Turku market square. Police on Saturday raised the number of injured in the attack from six to eight.

“There was a raid and we have now six suspects in custody, the main suspect and five others,” detective superintendent Markus Laine of the National Bureau of investigation told AFP.

“We are investigating the role of these five other people but we are not sure yet if they had anything to do with (the attack)… We will interrogate them, after that we can tell you more. But they had been in contact with the main suspect,” Laine said.

The suspect is being treated in hospital in intensive care for a gunshot wound to the thigh.

Media reports in Finland said police believed the suspect had picked his victims at random, but Laine could not confirm that.

Police have said it was likely the suspect acted alone, but added they were looking for “other possible perpetrators.”

Central Turku was swiftly cordoned off after the attack, which occurred just after 4:00 p.m. (1300 GMT), although the area was reopened several hours later.

Finland also raised its emergency readiness across the country after the stabbing, increasing security at airports and train stations and putting more officers on the streets.

In June, Finland’s intelligence and security agency Supo raised the country’s terror threat level by a notch, from “low” to “elevated”, the second notch on a four-tier scale.

It said at the time it saw an increased risk of an attack committed by the the so-called Islamic State (IS) group.

Spanish police say terrorists planned larger attack

BARCELONA, Spain (AFP) — Suspects in Spain’s twin terror attacks had been planning an even bigger assault than the deadly car rampages they carried out, police said, as distressing details emerged of families torn apart in the horror.

A 35-year-old Italian was among 14 killed, mowed down in front of his wife and young children in Barcelona when a driver rammed his van through crowds on the busy Las Ramblas boulevard on Thursday, before fleeing on foot.

Police said they shot dead five “suspected terrorists” who had knocked pedestrians down in the Catalan seaside resort of Cambrils in a second attack in the early hours of Friday, and arrested four others as Spain reeled from the deadly violence.

Catalonia’s regional police identified three of the suspects who were killed as Moroccan nationals.

They were Moussa Oukabir, 17, Said Aallaa, 18, and Mohamed Hychami, 24.

Police said Friday they suspect 12 people of involvement in the attacks: the five who were killed, four who were arrested and three who have been identified but who remain at large.

Officials suspect that two of these three may have died in a blast at a house in the town of Alcanar, about 200 kilometers (140 miles) south of Barcelona on Wednesday evening.

Bigger plans

Initially treated as a random gas blast, police later linked the explosion to the Barcelona assault, believing occupants of the house were preparing a larger attack, possibly a vehicle bomb, with the use of gas canisters and slipped up.

Police removed dozens of gas canisters from the house, according to an AFP photographer at the scene.

“They were preparing one or several attacks in Barcelona, and an explosion in Alcanar stopped this as they no longer had the material they needed to commit attacks of an even bigger scope,” said Josep Lluis Trapero of Catalonia’s police.

After the explosion the suspects quickly went on to commit “more rudimentary” attacks. These involved the vehicles ploughing into pedestrians in Barcelona and Cambrils, he added.

The Cambrils suspects had an axe and knives in the car as well as fake explosive belts stuck to their bodies, said police.

High ‘level of coordination’

Both Spanish attacks followed the same modus operandi.

Drivers deliberately targeted pedestrians with their vehicles, the latest in a series of such assaults in Europe.

The Mediterranean resort of Nice in France was particularly hard hit on July 14, 2016, when a man rammed a truck into a crowd, killing 86 people.

Otso Iho of Jane’s Terrorism and Insurgency Centre said the Spanish assaults, which stretched out over two different cities, appeared to be “a much higher level of coordination than has been typically present in previous attacks.”

It is also believed to be the first time IS has claimed an attack in Spain.

In a poignant moment Friday, Prime Minister Mariano Rajoy, King Felipe VI and the president of Catalonia — where both attacks took place — held a minute of silence in Barcelona. It was followed by the crowd applauding and shouting “not afraid.”

But in a sign of the tensions sparked by the attacks, about 20 far-right activists tried to protest at the march. Some held up signs reading “No More Mosques” or “Refugees not welcome anymore.”

Scuffles broke out between the far-right activists and the march participants.

Relatives separated

Details started to emerge Friday on the identity of victims, as did tragic stories of families ripped apart.

Witnesses in Barcelona described how the van pushed through the crowd, leaving bodies strewn along the boulevard as people fled for their lives, screaming in panic.

“We were on the city tour bus, we were 20 feet from the accident when it happened,” said Alex Luque, a 19-year-old student from New York.

“We heard the van and the impact with people and then we saw people running.”

Then just eight hours later attackers struck in the early hours of Friday in Cambrils. An Audi A3 car rammed into pedestrians, injuring six civilians and a police officer. One civilian, a woman, later died of her injuries.

The police shot dead the five attackers. They also said they had arrested four suspects — three Moroccans and a Spaniard.

Police said they have not yet identified who drove the white van that sped into crowds in Barcelona.

There were some three dozen nationalities among the dead and injured, from countries including Algeria, Australia, China, France, Ireland, Peru and Venezuela, according to Spain’s civil protection agency.

The Catalan government said seven victims of the attacks had been identified — five Spanish nationals, an Italian and a Portuguese.

Fifty-nine injured remained in hospital, including 15 who were in critical condition, the Catalan interior ministry said.

Memories of Madrid 2004

The Spanish government must now decide whether to raise the terror threat level from four to five (the maximum) during the height of the tourist season.

Spain, the world’s third most popular tourism destination with the industry accounting for 11 percent of the country’s economy, had until now been spared in the recent wave of extremist attacks that have rocked nearby France, Belgium and Germany.

It had even seen a surge in tourists as visitors fled other restive sunshine destinations such as Tunisia and Egypt.

But it is no stranger to jihadist attacks.

In March 2004, it was hit by what is still Europe’s deadliest attack, when bombs on commuter trains in Madrid killed 191 people in an attack claimed by Al Qaeda-inspired extremists.

Spain has also had to deal with a decades-long campaign of violence waged by Basque separatist group ETA, which only declared a ceasefire in 2011.

New information from police about suspected Turku stabbing: a foreign-born, young man

The police gave details of the incident at around 21:20.
According to the police, on Friday, 16.02, police received information that a number of people were stabbed on and around the Turku Market Square.

The police were quickly on the spot and caught the suspect at 16.05. The police were forced to use a firearm in captivity, shooting the suspect in the lower body.

The police say that the suspect is a foreign-born, male-minded male person who is being treated in a hospital.

There are eight victims, two of them dead.

The police will continue to investigate the matter, such as the suspect’s identity and motive. The investigation has been transferred to the Central Bureau of Investigation.

The police earlier called on people to avoid the center of Turku, but the center is now safe. Police preparedness has been raised as a result and police visibility has been added to urban centers throughout the country.

Parents Catch FBI in Plot to Force Mentally Ill Son to Be a Right Wing Terrorist

http://www.renegadetribune.com/parents-catch-fbi-plot-force-mentally-ill-son-right-wing-terrorist/
By Matt Agorist

It’s become a near-weekly occurrence. Somewhere in some state, the FBI will announce that they’ve foiled yet another terrorist plot and saved lives. However, as the data shows, the majority of these cases involve psychologically diminished patsies who’ve been entirely groomed, armed, and entrapped by FBI agents. Simply put, the FBI manufactures terror threats and then takes credit for stopping them.

While many of these cases have garnered attention and been exposed in the alternative media, a recent case out of Oklahoma sets a new low for FBI and exposes how insidious these plots can be.

Through the hundreds of ‘foiled terror plots’ the FBI has ‘busted’ over the years, many of them have been focused on people of Middle Eastern descent or people associated with ISIS or Al Qaeda. This time, in the case of Jerry Drake Varnell, the 23-year-old diagnosed schizophrenic, accused of attempting to bomb a bank, the FBI fomented terror from a right wing dialogue.

In a June meeting with the agent, according to FBI documents, Varnell described himself as a believer in “Three Percenter” ideology, a right wing group claiming to be committed to standing against and exposing corruption and injustice.

According to federal documents, Varnell drove what he believed was a stolen van containing a 1,000-pound ammonium nitrate bomb on Saturday morning to blow up an Oklahoma City bank. Vile, indeed.

However, if we backtrack just a bit, to when the FBI began grooming their would-be right wing militia terrorist, the vileness comes directly from the government.

“The FBI knew he was schizophrenic,” Varnell’s parents declared on Wednesday in an open letter bravely published by NewsOK.

Underneath his condition, he is a sweet-hearted person and we are extremely shocked that this event has happened. However, what truly has us flabbergasted is the fact that the FBI knew he was schizophrenic. The State of Oklahoma found him mentally incompetent and we, his parents have legal guardianship over him by the Court. These documents are sealed from the public, which is why no news media outlet has been able to obtain them. The FBI clearly knew that he was schizophrenic because they have gathered every ounce of information on him.”

Yet they knowingly continued to groom him, despite the clear immoral implications.

When they began grooming him, according to the family, the FBI knew that Varnell was declared mentally unfit to live by himself and that he was a paranoid schizophrenic. Without their criminal informant and the FBI tactics playing mind games with this vulnerable man, the idea of him committing an act of terror would have likely never materialized.

What the public should be looking at is the fact that the FBI gave our son the means to make this happen. He has no job, no money, no vehicle, and no driver’s license, due to the fact that he is schizophrenic and we; his parents do everything we can possible to keep him safe and functional…..  He has suffered through countless serious full-blown schizophrenic delusional episodes and he has been put in numerous mental hospitals since he was 16 years old. The FBI came and picked him up from our home, they gave him a vehicle, gave him a fake bomb, and every means to make this happen none of which he had access to on his own. 

The parents noted that during the setup, they suspected something was going on and Jerry’s father told the informant to stay away from their son. However, according to the parents, the informant “continued to sneak onto our residence. The FBI paid him to continue this operation and I believe they have cleared his criminal record.”

Because they knew Varnell had severe mental disabilities, the FBI should have had stopped their plans to do this and immediately sought an option of hospitalization. However, they pressed on.

Knowing a sane person would likely never attempt to blow up a bank, the FBI deliberately targeted a severely delusional and mentally ill person. This is wrong on so many levels. Will the next mass murderer they groom come directly from a mental institution?

The FBI should have filed conspiracy on our son and had him committed to a mental institution. They should not have aided and abetted a paranoid schizophrenic to commit this act. There are many more facts that I will not make public that will support my son and the disturbing acts made by the FBI.

I realize that many will say my son could have found another person to commit this act. Yet, any person that has access to the materials and the state of mind necessary to bomb a building would not have any need for a schizophrenic who has no resources to contribute.”

Clifford and Melonie Varnell, Jerry’s parents make a powerful point. No one — other than the FBI — would’ve attempted to get a schizophrenic man with nothing to contribute to do their bidding as it would most likely be a futile effort — unless you are the FBI looking for an easy patsy to keep fear alive.

David Steele, a 20-year Marine Corps intelligence officer, the second-highest-ranking civilian in the U.S. Marine Corps Intelligence, and former CIA clandestine services case officer, had this to say about these most unscrupulous operations:

Most terrorists are false flag terrorists, or are created by our own security services. In the United States, every single terrorist incident we have had has been a false flag, or has been an informant pushed on by the FBI. In fact, we now have citizens taking out restraining orders against FBI informants that are trying to incite terrorism. We’ve become a lunatic asylum.”

Indeed, we’ve become a lunatic asylum.

Australian woman, 26, caught up in Barcelona terror attack has cheated death THREE times this year after narrowly avoiding ISIS attacks in London and France

http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-4801352/Australian-witness-Barcelona-attack-cheats-death-again.html?ito=social-facebook

  • Julia Monaco, from Melbourne, is on holiday in Barcelona with friends
  • She and her friends were forced to hide in a store when the chaos erupted
  • Van plowed into pedestrians in city’s historic Las Ramblas district on Thursday 
  • The attack killed 13 people and injured more, including a woman from NSW 
  • The woman is in hospital in a serious but stable condition, Foreign Minister said 
  • Two men, believed to be from Victoria, were ‘directly affected’ by the attack

A young Australian woman has cheated death for the third time this year after terrorist attacks took place in three different cities that she was travelling through.

Julia Monaco, 26, from Melbourne, was in a shopping mall with a friend when a van plowed into pedestrians in the Las Ramblas district of Barcelona on Thursday.

It was her third brush with terrorism since she began travelling around Europe three months ago but she told 3AW’s Neil Mitchell that she won’t let it stop her from seeing the world.

In June, she was put in a lockdown on the London Underground while out with friends when terrorists plowed into people on London Bridge before going on a knife rampage in nearby Borough Market.

Days later, she was in Notre Dame in Paris when a police officer was stabbed outside the famous cathedral.

‘I don’t feel like I want to go home,’ she told Neil Mitchell on Friday morning.

‘I feel like I want to stay here and not let them – whoever they may be – win.

‘I’m going to see what I came here to see.’

Ms Monaco and her friends Alana Reader and Julia Rocca, also from Melbourne, were in the store on Placa de Catalyuna when they saw people outside running for their lives.

The doors were locked and she spoke of how she watched terrified pedestrians banging on the windows trying to get inside from the street.

‘In a split second it all kind of changed and everyone just started running and panicking and running for their lives and crying and screaming and we were forced back into the store, told to get away from the windows and to get low on the ground,’ she told Nine.

Ms Monaco said those inside huddled at the back of an Urban Outfitters store and were told to lie face-down on the floor and away from the windows.

When they were finally allowed to leave, they had to walk back to their hostel and avoid the numerous streets that had been closed by police.

‘You just have to keep going. I’m sure though tomorrow morning my mum will say ‘come home’, but I don’t think I’ve been scared out of travelling,’ she added.

Melbourne man Michael Christou was about 300m from the initial scene of the Las Ramblas carnage and was also nearby when eight people including two Australians were killed in the London Bridge van attack in June.

‘I think it’s following me but you kind of come over here (to Europe) and you expect it to happen but you don’t let it stop you from doing what you want to do.’

Australian Adam James and his wife, who was pushed over and suffered minor injuries as they ran from the scene, were in Istanbul last year when a police bus was blown up in a terror attack.

‘It’s happened again. It’s a very real thing,’ he said.

Authorities said at least 13 people were killed in Thursday’s attack – which has been claimed by Islamic State – and 100 more injured, 15 of them seriously.

Three Australians were injured, including an NSW woman who is in a serious but stable condition in hospital.

Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull said Australia stood in absolute resolute solidarity with Spain in the global battle against Islamist terrorism.

‘This is a global battle against terrorism,’ Mr Turnbull told reporters in Canberra on Friday.

Early Friday, Catalan police posted a tweet saying they shot and killed four suspects and wounded a fifth in a resort town south of Barcelona.

They said officers ‘shot down the perpetrators’ to ‘respond to a terrorist attack.’

It wasn’t immediately clear from the tweet if the five shot were suspects in the Las Ramblas attack or were allegedly targeting another location.

Police patrol streets in Las Ramblas after Barcelona terrorist

Las Ramblas, a street of stalls and shops that cuts through the center of Barcelona, is one of the city’s top tourist destinations. People walk down a wide, pedestrian path in the center of the street while cars can travel on either side.

Police immediately cordoned off the city’s broad avenue and ordered stores and nearby Metro and train stations to close.

Other witnesses also described horrific scenes and fearful crowds in the aftermath of the van attack, which has been claimed by the Islamic State.

MFB Commander Graeme O’Sullivan was one of the first responders at Melbourne’s Bourke Street tragedy in January.

He and his wife saw the latest carnage unfold from the rooftop of their Barcelona hotel.

‘We were up on the sixth floor roof terrace, just the pool area, enjoying a few drinks,’ he told Nine.

‘We could clearly hear thuds as the vehicle was running into people, and then a short time after that, obviously, several very loud sickening screams from the people involved down at street level.’

Mr O’Sullivan said the similarity to the Bourke Street Mall event was chilling.

‘Bourke Street wasn’t terrorism and this appears to be, but the result is still the same,’ he told Melbourne radio 3AW.

Australian cyber safety expert Susan McLean was about 100m away as the van zigzagged down the busy avenue, mowing down pedestrians and leaving bodies strewn across the ground.

‘All of a sudden there was this tidal wave of people running from both Placa de Catalunya and Las Ramblas towards us screaming, crying and with absolute terror etched on their faces,’ she told Nine Network on Friday.

‘Several of them were calling ‘gun, gun’, so first of all we thought someone had been shot.

‘Then they just kept sort of – it was all in Spanish, it was very difficult to understand – but they were sort of pushing us into shops.’

Ms McLean, who was separated from her husband in the panic, also said the scene reminded her of the Bourke Street Mall rampage.

‘My first reaction was the Bourke Street massacre, because that is what it reminded me of – the vision of people fleeing in just such terror,’ she said.

Keith Fleming, and American living in Barcelona, said he was watching television in his building on a side street just off Las Ramblas when he heard a noise and went out to the balcony to investigate.

He says he saw ‘women and children just running and they looked terrified.’

Mr Fleming heard a bang, possibly from someone rolling down a store shutter, as more people raced by.

He said armed police arrived and pushed everyone a full block down the street.

State-owned broadcaster RTVE reported that investigators think two vans were used – one for the attack and a second as a getaway vehicle.

The attack in the northeastern Spanish city was the country’s deadliest since 2004, when al-Qaeda-inspired bombers killed 192 people in coordinated attacks on Madrid’s commuter trains.

Spain has been on a security alert one step below the maximum since June 2015 following attacks elsewhere in Europe and Africa.

Cars, trucks and vans have been the weapon of choice in multiple extremist attacks in Europe in the last year.

The most deadly was the driver of a tractor-trailer who targeted Bastille Day revelers in the southern French city of Nice in July 2016, killing 86 people.

In December 2016, 12 people died after a driver used a hijacked trick to drive into a Christmas market in Berlin.

There have been multiple attacks this year in London, where a man in a rented SUV plowed into pedestrians on Westminster Bridge, killing four people before he ran onto the grounds of Parliament and stabbed an unarmed police officer to death in March.

Four other men drove onto the sidewalk of London Bridge, unleashing a rampage with knives that killed eight people in June.

Another man also drove into pedestrians leaving a north London mosque later in June.

Manchester bombing survivor Chris Pawley, 30, narrowly escapes death for a SECOND time after being caught up in Barcelona terror attack

http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-4800752/Manchester-bombing-survivor-caught-Barcelona-attack.html?ito=social-facebook

 

  • Chris Pawley, 30, of Manchester stumbled upon the frantic terror aftermath
  • Abroad with partner Corey Lorde, Chris also attended the Ariana Grande concert
  • Mr Pawley left the Manchester concert minutes before the bomb was detonated 

A survivor of the Manchester bombings has narrowly escaped death for a second time after being caught up in the Barcelona terrorist attack on Thursday.

Chris Pawley, 30, was visiting the Spanish city with his partner Corey Lorde when he stumbled upon the frantic terror aftermath.

At least 13 people have been killed and 100 injured after a van ploughed into pedestrians in a busy tourist street.

Chris, who lives in Manchester, told the Manchester Evening News: ‘We were in the area after the incident. We have just come back to the hotel, as we were caught up in the arena attack – can’t believe it.’

He added: ‘There was police everywhere and ambulances, the shops started putting the shutters down.’

The Manchester native was in attendance in May when an attacker detonated an explosive device killing 22 and injuring dozens more.

He explained he left the venue and were crossing the footbridge into Manchester Victoria station just seconds before the suicide bomber carried out his attack.

ISIS has claimed responsibility for the attack, describing the killers as ‘soldiers of the Islamic state’. Terror police have arrested two suspects.

One of them is believed to be Driss Oukabir, a Catalan resident in his late 20s of Moroccan origin. Reports in Spain say he handed himself in at a police station in Ripoll, 65 miles north of Barcelona.

His picture had earlier been circulated in connection with the attack after police said he had rented one of the vans used.

Television network TVE1 said Oukabir told police his documents had been stolen by his brother. Police were investigating whether he played any role in the attacks, it reported.

Horrifying pictures and video from the scene show armed police and paramedics rushing around Las Ramblas, a busy promenade in the centre of the city, as victims lie hurt in the street.

It remains unclear how many attackers were involved in the massacre, which is being treated by police as an act of terrorism.

Van Driver Hits Pedestrians in Barcelona, Killing at Least 12 in Terror Attack

The driver of a van plowed into a crowd enjoying a peaceful, sunny afternoon on a pedestrianized stretch of Barcelona’s most famous street on Thursday, killing at least 12 people and leaving 80 others lying bloodied on the pavement amid wrecked kiosks, in what Spanish authorities said was a terrorist attack. Two men have been arrested.

Within hours, the Islamic State claimed that the perpetrators were its “soldiers,” adding Spain to the list of European countries — including France and Britain — where vehicles have been used in attacks on civilians.

Until Thursday, Spain had been spared from the recent wave of terrorist attacks in Europe — many involving vehicles plowing into crowds — claimed by extremists in France, Germany, Britain and elsewhere.

That changed in an instant, with witnesses describing people screaming and running for their lives as the driver of the van weaved back and forth just before 6 p.m., apparently trying to hit as many people as he could. Police officers swept through the area near Las Ramblas, a wide boulevard with a large pedestrianized section, telling people to get out of the area.

“I heard a crowd screaming,” Tom Markwell, a tourist from New Orleans, told the BBC. “It sounded like they were screaming for a movie star.”

The police were requesting that people not pass through the area near Plaza de Cataluña and Las Ramblas in the heart of the city, popular destinations for tourists.

The Barcelona police said they had put in place their protocols for dealing with serious attacks, the Catalan emergency services said that they had asked the authorities to close metro and train stations in the area.

“There has just been a massive trampling on the Ramblas in Barcelona by a person with a van,” the Catalan police said on Twitter.

Keith Fleming, an American who lives just off Las Ramblas, told The Associated Press that he was watching television when he heard a noise, looked out over his balcony and “saw women and children just running and they looked terrified.”

Mr. Fleming said that the street was deserted, with the exception of police officers with guns drawn or in riot gear. “It’s just kind of a tense situation,” The A.P. reported him as saying. “Clearly people were scared.”

Facebook activated its safety-check feature for Barcelona, taxis were reportedly giving free rides to help people get out of the city center, and public transit was free in the areas where it was still operating.

American counterterrorism officials in Washington said they were in contact with Spanish authorities to offer any assistance, but underscored that the investigation had just started.

President Trump said on Twitter that the United States condemned the attack and would “do whatever is necessary to help, telling Spaniards to “Be tough & strong, we love you!”

In a subsequent Tweet, Mr. Trump seemed to blame Islamist militants for the attack, citing what is widely believed to be a fictitious account of a military event, and even though the Spanish government had not identified any individuals or groups who might have been behind the attack.

Pro-Islamic State accounts on the Telegram messaging service shared news of the attack. One channel, called “Expansion of the Caliphate,” posted video of the scene of the violence alongside a message in Arabic. “Terror is filling the hearts of the Crusader in the Land of Andalusia,” it said.

In the past year, the Islamic State has devoted resources to translating their channels and messages into Spanish.

Although countries like France and Britain have repeatedly been named in Islamic State propaganda urging followers to plan and stage attacks, Spain has been less in the cross hairs.

The country has, however, been a transit point for recruits of the militant group, both for those going to Syria and those returning. The Spanish police arrested nine people in April who they said may have been connected with deadly attacks in France and Spain.

The attack appeared to follow the playbook of recent assaults in which attackers drove vehicles into crowded stretches of large European cities.

“While it’s not clear whether the attackers corresponded with ISIS prior to the operation, it’s clear that the methods used in the attack is something ISIS encouraged and incited over and again,” said Laith Alkhouri, a director in New York of the business-risk intelligence company Flashpoint, which tracks militant threats and cyberthreats.

A Facebook user called Allberth SaLcer posted a video that shows injured people lying on the ground near Las Ramblas.

In the French resort city of Nice, a man drove a rental truck into a crowd celebrating Bastille Day on the seaside Promenade des Anglais last year, killing 86 people.

A few days before Christmas last year, a driver in a stolen van mowed down unsuspecting shoppers at a holiday market in Berlin, killing 12 people and wounding dozens.

At least seven civilians were killed and dozens injured in June when knife-wielding assailants sped across London Bridge in a white van, ramming numerous pedestrians before emerging with large hunting knives to attack the capital’s Borough Market, a crowded nightspot.

The Islamic State claimed responsibility, saying the attack had been carried out by “a detachment of Islamic State fighters.”

That attack was reminiscent of another, on Westminster Bridge in London on March 22, when Khalid Masood, 52, drove a car into pedestrians, killing four people.

He then stabbed a police officer to death near Parliament before himself being shot and killed. The police treated that attack, in which 50 were injured, as “Islamist-related terrorism.”

There have been other deadly attacks using vehicles that were not related to Islamist extremists. A British man rammed a rental van into a congregation of Muslims leaving prayers in North London during Ramadan, and a man who was part of white supremacist demonstrations in Charlottesville, Va., drove his car into a crowd on Saturday, killing a woman.

In March 2004, a series of bombs ripped through commuter trains in Madrid, killing 191 people and wounding more than 1,800. The bombings were carried out by a group of North African Islamists that intersected with a band of petty criminals.

The leaders of European countries and cities whose countries have suffered attacks quickly expressed their support and solidarity with Barcelona.

In Germany, which is on alert for remains wary of potential terrorist threats weeks before the general election on Sept. 24, members of Chancellor Angela Merkel’s cabinet expressed their solidarity with the Spanish people, following the news from Barcelona.

“I am deeply shaken by the terrible news from Barcelona,” said Thomas de Maizière, the country’s interior minister. “Once again, terror has shown its grotesque face.”

Anne Hidalgo, the mayor of Paris, said on Twitter that Barcelona and Paris “are cities of sharing, love and tolerance. Such values are stronger than this despicable and cowardly terrorism. Sadiq Khan, the mayor of London, said his city “stands with Barcelona against the evil of terrorism.”

Sessions Says ‘Evil Attack’ in Virginia Is Domestic Terrorism

WASHINGTON — Attorney General Jeff Sessions said on Monday that the “evil attack” in Charlottesville, Va., over the weekend meets the legal definition of an act of domestic terrorism, an early declaration in an investigation after a car plowed into a crowd of protesters.

“It does meet the definition of domestic terrorism in our statute,” Mr. Sessions said on ABC’s “Good Morning America,” referring to a fatal attack on Saturday when a vehicle drove into a crowd protesting white nationalists, killing one woman and injuring others. A 20-year-old man has been arrested and charged by Virginia authorities with second-degree murder, three counts of malicious wounding and failing to stop at the scene of a crash that resulted in a death.

“You can be sure we will charge and advance the investigation toward the most serious charges that can be brought because this is unequivocally an unacceptable evil attack,” Mr. Sessions said, adding that terrorism and civil rights investigators were working on the case.

Mr. Sessions appeared on several morning news shows on Monday, condemning the violent demonstrations over the removal of a Confederate monument and defending President Trump’s response.

Mr. Trump has been reluctant to criticize white supremacists for the weekend’s bloody protests in Charlottesville. The attorney general’s remarks were notable for being more specific and direct than the president’s in condemning the alt-right, a loose collective of far-right activists, some of whom espouse racist and anti-Semitic views.

Mr. Sessions, who is coming off weeks of pointed criticism from Mr. Trump over his performance as attorney general, was pressed to explain why the president had not forcefully condemned white nationalism.

Mr. Sessions said the president had done so, but he was referring to an unattributed White House statement on Sunday that condemned “white supremacists,” not to comments Mr. Trump made publicly.

“He said that yesterday, his spokesman did,” Mr. Sessions said on ABC.

“It came from the White House,” Mr. Sessions said on NBC’s “Today” show. “It was authorized.”

“I think we’re making too much of this,” Mr. Sessions added on “CBS This Morning.”

As United States attorney in Alabama, Mr. Sessions was accused decades ago of making racist comments, something he has denied. But critics again assailed him as racist during his Senate confirmation.

But Mr. Sessions’s record on law and order suggests a more nuanced view.

“I’ve always said he’s good on criminal civil rights enforcement, on hate crimes. I think he really cares about it,” said Vanita Gupta, the president of the Leadership Conference on Civil and Human Rights. Ms. Gupta was head of the Justice Department’s civil rights division during the Obama administration. “The problem is, he’s completely unwilling to address systemic problems.”

Mr. Trump was scheduled to meet in Washington later Monday with Mr. Sessions and the F.B.I. director, Christopher A. Wray, about the Charlottesville incident, the White House said. Mr. Trump has been on vacation in New Jersey. Mr. Sessions said that Mr. Trump would speak “to the people” later on Monday.

The “domestic terrorism” language is largely symbolic — many of the law’s stiffest penalties are for international terrorism that do not apply domestically. But the debate over language has raged for more than a decade, as Muslim groups in particular argue that the word terrorism is used only when the attackers are Muslim.

By declaring the attack to be domestic terrorism, Mr. Sessions is moving quickly to quell a debate that swirled after the 2015 shooting of a historically black church in South Carolina. Dylann S. Roof, a South Carolina man who had once worn white supremacist patches, killed nine people in that attack. Loretta E. Lynch, the attorney general at the time, declared hate crimes “the original domestic terrorism.” But some civil rights groups wanted her to go farther.

Under federal law that was expanded after the terrorist attacks of Sept. 11, 2001, a violation of federal or state criminal law qualifies as domestic terrorism if it appears to be intended to coerce or intimidate a civilian population or to coerce the policy of the government. But domestic terrorism carries no additional penalties. Investigators rely on charges like murder and assault in prosecuting these crimes.

The Justice Department announced over the weekend that it was opening a civil rights investigation into the Charlottesville incident.

The Alt Right was Led Into a Trap in Charlottesville, Pro-Whites Now Seen as Terrorists

http://www.renegadetribune.com/alt-right-led-trap-charlottesville-now-pro-whites-seen-terrorists/

 

In 2014 I organized the White Man March in an effort to raise awareness about White Genocide. Knowing our own weaknesses and the strengths of our enemies, I encouraged people to not engage in any planned marches, but instead to do hit-and-run flash demonstrations and localized activism. By doing so, they would be able to get the message out without facing off against Antifa or getting shut down by the police. Additionally, the only media of the events would likely only come from the organizers themselves, instead of hostile mainstream reporters. All things considered, our activism was a big success around the world, with a significant amount of media coverage after the fact, and although it was not supportive, the reports always included our message about White Genocide.

The recent debacle in Charlottesville showed why our forces should not amass for a rally such as this. The night before looked pretty good, as lots of guys with torches marched to the Robert E. Lee monument and surrounded a bunch of SJWs, but it was easy to tell things would soon be devolving into chaos. Chants of “Black Lives Matter” were answered with the idiotic “Black Lives Splatter”, then some fighting ensued and people marched out as the police came.

Then the actual day of the “Unite the Right” rally saw even more violence. Insults and chants were hurled back and forth between the opposing side, with neither coming off in a favorable light, but of course the media and politicians (including the “conservative”) are only going to focus in on how evil White racism is. Let’s be honest, though, the assholes of the Alt Right gave the enemies of the White race plenty of ammunition. Here is a large contingent chanting “White Sharia now”, something that involves torturing and raping White women, which was popularized by The Right Stuff and The Daily Stormer.

The guys in the front left are from Vanguard America, which should not be confused with National Vanguard. Remember this, as it will become more relevant as this story unfolds. Do these people really think that this is a good tactic for winning over the hearts and minds of regular White Americans? Doesn’t this just fit perfectly into the narrative of pro-Whites being terrorists?

From what I could see, the whole event looked like a circus-like gladiatorial pit. There was a black man with a homemade flame thrower, Communist flags, White men with shields and helmets, and LOTS of riot police, with the National Guard waiting in the wings. Having the mayor, governor, and police actively conspiring to thwart the rally, it was bound to not get far. The police stood down and allowed both sides to attack each other, which then gave them the opportunity to shut it all down and call the rally an unlawful assembly.

A number of Alt Right leaders and commentators appeared absolutely shocked that agents of ZOG would not protect their first amendment rights, despite this being the case with countless demonstrations in the past.

The Virginia State Police DID NOT keep Antifa separated and allowed them to mace, pepper spray and attack countless people

Tying in Terrorism

As the crowds were dispersing, a Dodge Charger (like the General Lee from Dukes of Hazzard) sped off down a street and plowed into a crowd of Antifa, Communists, and assorted leftists. If police and news reports are to be believed, one person ended up dead and many more injured. Faith Goldy of (((Rebel Media))) was on hand to capture the footage, and a very high quality images emerged, showing people flying in the air, apparently getting knocked out of their shoes.

There was supposedly a police helicopter crash that happened around the same time, caused by an AltRight drone, but the only evidence of it is a photo of a small fire in the woods, much like Flight 93 disappearing into a burnt hole in Shanksville on 9/11. As for the car incident, I am unable to say for certain if this scene was staged in some way, but planning a demonstration this far in advance certainly gave the intelligence agencies ample time to set up something that could be used as the reason to completely crack down on White dissidents.

Initially it was reported by GotNews that the driver was a young leftist, but they ended up retracting their erroneous assertions. After some time it was released that the driver of the car was James Alex Fields, who appears to be a member of Vanguard America.

So members of Vanguard America were shouting “White Sharia now” and then soon after one of them commits an act of vehicular terror, just like we have seen recently by Muslims in Europe. This is exactly what the enemies of the White race have been desiring for quite some time.

Ju mayor of  now comparing to 9/11 & calling 4 people to report family & friends who might be “radicalized terrorists”.

At the end of 2016 I did a show on Renegade Broadcasting about the White House’s “Countering Violent Extremism” program, which seeks to group White dissidents in with Islamic extremists. Check out DHS’s wording in their response to the event.

I have repeatedly tried to warn any honest White advocates about this program, but many of them have been convinced that the White House is now on our side, and that we don’t have to worry about such things, since Antifa is the REAL terrorist organization. Even after Trump condemned the demonstration, shills in the alternative media were making excuses for “our guy” in the White House.

The President bitches about hateful bigots like a Eurotrash leftist queer does. Once a New York liberal, always a New York liberal. pic.twitter.com/bnxh07JdG1

Even when Trump’s calling them bigots, the AutRight will always defend their gay dad. pic.twitter.com/N8JrHTL8G2

Alt Right Controlled Opposition

It is my contention that the leaders of “Unite the Right” are enemy agents who led the lemmings into a situation that would gain nothing for our cause, and would in fact damage our efforts in many different ways. Many people were injured, the public at large will have no sympathy for the racist Whites who terrorized a city, and ZOG will be given ever more powers to silence our dissent. Actually, even more Confederate statues are going to come down due to the debacle.

One of the big problems with the whole rally is that it was reacting to plans to remove a statue of Robert E. Lee. Essentially the rally was defending the Confederacy. While I think the destruction of historical monuments is more than troubling, most normal people watching reports on the TV will think that the “White supremacists” are looking to re-institute slavery in America, or at least that blacks should be killed. “Black lives splatter” after all, right? Tying the White cause to the Confederacy is not only problematic because of slavery, but also because the Confederacy was very Jewish. Over 10,000 jews fought for the Confederacy, there were numerous jewish generals, and Judah P. Benjamin was first Attorney General, then Secretary of War, and finally Secretary of State. Confederates in the 19th century were fighting for jews and the jewish institution of slavery in America.

Neo-Confederates and their Alt Right allies in the 20th century are also fighting for jews (and supporting the ZOG Emperor), with many of them doing so unknowingly. Let’s go through some of the leading figures in the “Unite the Right” demonstration for a better understanding of who led the gullible goyim into a well-orchestrated trap, which any honest leader would have foreseen.

Richard Spencer (White Idiot, Zionist)

According to the SpencerGate site, which appears to have uncovered valid information, Richard Spencer has jewish ancestry and has received millions of dollars from the federal government in the form of farm subsidies. Here he is pictured with Laura Bush, the former first lady of the US, relaxing at some lakefront property.

Spencer has also notoriously welcomed homosexuals into his movement, called homosexuality the last stand of implicit White identity, organized a pyramid scheme known as Phalanx, called the Alt Right the “New Left”, praised Marxists, and said that the Alt Right is analogous to the murderous Bolsheviks (who were jews).

“And we are a kind of revolutionary movement…a movement that is analogous to the Bolsheviks.” -Richard Spencer DO YOU GET IT YET?

Do I really need to go on? Yet people will still defend him.

Mike Enoch (Jew)

Enoch (Pienovich) is the founder of The Right Stuff, where the toxic White Sharia meme was born. It should have been enough proof that Enoch was a jewish agent when I released a screenshot of him stating in a private facebook chat that jews did not do 9/11, but he was still hailed as a great hero.

It later came out that Enoch was married to a diversity-loving jewess who attended drag queen shows, but Mike was accepted back into the fold almost immediately after divorcing her. The problem is that Mike has essentially admitted he is jewish (or at least part jewish) on multiple occassions.

Yet people still claim that we are just misinterpreting his words.

Augustus Sol Invictus (White Idiot)

This guy is a devotee of Aleister Crowley, actually identifying himself as a Thelemite. He even admits to having sacrificed a goat in a ritual. Here he is with a jew star on his arm.

Holy moly, are people on the “right” so dumb as to not be able to see what is right in front of their faces?

Baked Alaska (White Idiot)

This circus clown, named Tim “Treadstone” Gionet, gained his fame by being a massive Trumptard, rapping about how Trump is going to build the wall and how much he loves police. He was even chanting “Blue Lives Matter” as the agents of ZOG marched into Charlottesville.

Look at these morons cheering on ZOG forces that later shut them all down lol How much do you love your boys in blue now?

Somehow he was still able to keep a perfect hold on his selfie stick after being sprayed with bear mace.

Although I don’t have hard evidence that this man is a jew, he sure looks like one.

Matt Heimbach (White Idiot)

He was deemed “the new face of hate” in America. Heimbach famously roughed up a big black girl, shoving her out of a Trump rally and later getting charged for it. He is a big supporter of Alexander Dugin, founder of the National Bolsheviks and Eurasianist mastermind, who he got to record a speech titled “To My American Friends in Our Common Struggle” for one of Heimbach’s meetings.

Just watch how quickly Heimbach switched his positions on important issues.

Why is it that Heimbach, who actually looks more jewish than many Israelis, has always been front and center in the media spotlight? Could it be because he makes our cause look terrible?

Pax Dickinson (Jew)

Renegade Tribune recently ran an expose of Pax, who calls himself a “Redneck Zionist”, which Sinead turned into a video presentation.

Long story short, Pax thinks we need to unite with right-wing jews, like the one who he brought on to be the CTO for his crowd-funding platform.

Conclusion

There is much more that could be said about the rally, the people involved, and what the ramifications will be, but I will leave some of that up to you in the comments. Please just be careful, realize our perilous position, and never trust compromised leaders.
