French ‘Extremist’ Screams “Allahu Akbar” As He Stabs 21 Year Old British Woman To Death

Australian police are investigating another “extremist” attack involving a French national who stabbed a British woman to death and injured two others while yelling “Allahu Akbar.” As Reuters reports, the police are looking into possible “mental health or drug misuse” issues and any “indication of an extremist slant or he was radicalized,” an officer said, noting the man was in Australia on a valid tourist visa and had no known links to radical groups such as Islamic State….blah blah blah.  This is getting old.

The assault took place on Wednesday at a backpackers’ hostel near Townsville in northern Queensland.

20160824_allahiu1A 21-year-old British woman bled to death at the scene, while a 30-year-old British man was taken to hospital in critical condition, state police reported. As RT reports,

“Initial inquiries indicate that comments which may be construed of being of an extremist nature were made by the alleged offender,” Queensland Police Service Deputy Commissioner Steve Gollschewski told reporters.

He added that the police were “not ruling out any motivations at this early stage, whether they be criminal or political.”

The perpetrator was a 29-year-old French national who arrived in Australia on a tourist visa in March.

“This person appears to have acted alone,” Gollschewski said. “He is a visitor to Australia and has no known local connections; however investigations are ongoing.”

It is alleged that the suspect used the phrase “Allahu Akbar” during the attack and while he was being arrested by police, Gollschewski added.

At the same press conference in Brisbane, Australian federal police commander Sharon Cowden said that the French suspect has no known connections to extremist groups.

Australia, a staunch U.S. ally, has been on heightened alert for attacks by home-grown Islamist radicals since 2014 and authorities say they have thwarted a number of plots. As Reuters details,

About 100 people have left Australia for Syria to fight alongside organisations such as Islamic State, Australia’s Immigration Minister said this year.

The FBI on Tuesday said it was investigating a similar attack in Virginia, in which a suspect shouted the same words while attacking a man and woman with a knife. Similar attacks have recently occurred in France, Bangladesh and Germany.

There have been several “lone wolf” assaults in Australia, including a 2014 cafe siege in Sydney that left two hostages and the gunman dead. Also in 2014, police shot dead a Melbourne teenager after he stabbed two counter-terrorism officers.

In 2015, a 15-year-old boy fired on an accountant at a police headquarters in a Sydney suburb and was killed in a gunfight with police.

It appears the more reported ‘success’ there is in the Middle East – as Turkish tanks roll into Syria – the more ‘lone wolf’ blowback we see around the world (and the more fear is instilled upon western societies looking for rescue by their government).

Over Half Of Hillary’s Private Meetings As Secretary Were With Donors Who Paid $156 Million to Hillary

In the latest confirmation that Hillary’s receipt of donations while Secretary of State was a conflict of interest at best and criminal cronyism and “favor peddling” at worst (it would be ideal if the DOJ could chime in here, however the just as conflicted Department of Justice, which is headed by a 1999 Bill Clinton appointee, has decided to avoid the topic of the Clinton Foundation for obvious reasons), AP reports that more than half, or at least 85 of 154 people interests who met or spoke to Clinton while she led the State Department, donated to her family charity or pledged commitments.

Combined, the 85 donors contributed as much as $156 million. At least 40 donated more than $100,000 each, and 20 gave more than $1 million.

Plenty of overlaps in meetings between Secretary of State Clinton and foundation donors. https://t.co/OKkzyjJSPQ pic.twitter.com/pAltaKwcYc

— AP Politics (@AP_Politics) August 23, 2016

Remember, the Clinton Foundation is Hillary’s personal slush fund where 90% of donations go directly to Hillary and friends.

The 154 number did not include U.S. federal employees or foreign government representatives: separately, Hillary met with representatives of at least 16 foreign governments that donated as much as $170 million to the Clinton charity, but they were not included in AP’s calculations because such meetings would presumably have been part of her diplomatic duties, but most likely resulted in such “quid pro quo” as the fast-tracking of weapons deliveries to countries such as Saudi Arabia.

Getting the information was, understandably, not easy. Despite the data being technically public, Hillary did not want the world to know just how many wealthy “donors” she is beholden to. As a result, the AP first sought Clinton’s calendar and schedules three years ago, but delays led the AP to sue the State Department last year in federal court for those materials and other records. The AP’s findings represent the first systematic effort to calculate the scope of the intersecting interests of Clinton foundation donors and people who met personally with Clinton or spoke to her by phone about their needs.

Hillary’s calendars and emails released as recently as this week describe scores of contacts she and her top aides had with foundation donors.

“There’s a lot of potential conflicts and a lot of potential problems,” said Douglas White, an expert on nonprofits who previously directed Columbia University’s graduate fundraising management program. “The point is, she can’t just walk away from these 6,000 donors.”

That is indeed the point, and while she was Secretary of State, not only did she not walk away from donors, but she greeted them with open arms. As to what favors were exchanged for the cash, we may never know.

Among the generous donors who were granted time with Clinton included an internationally known economist who asked for her help as the Bangladesh government pressured him to resign from a nonprofit bank he ran; a Wall Street executive who sought Clinton’s help with a visa problem and Estee Lauder executives who were listed as meeting with Clinton while her department worked with the firm’s corporate charity to counter gender-based violence in South Africa.

For those still unclear how one buys not only America’s top diplomat, but the entire Department of State, here are some details. Incidentally, for best results, donate to both the foundation and directly:

Some of Clinton’s most influential visitors donated millions to the Clinton Foundation and to her and her husband’s political coffers. They are among scores of Clinton visitors and phone contacts in her official calendar turned over by the State Department to AP last year and in more-detailed planning schedules that so far have covered about half her four-year tenure.

S. Daniel Abraham, whose name also was included in emails released by the State Department as part of another lawsuit, is a Clinton fundraising bundler who was listed in Clinton’s planners for eight meetings with her at various times. A billionaire behind the Slim-Fast diet and founder of the Center for Middle East Peace, Abraham told the AP last year his talks with Clinton concerned “Mideast issues”.

Others opted to give just to the Foundation. Big Clinton Foundation donors with no history of political giving to the Clintons also met or talked by phone with Hillary Clinton and top aides, AP’s review showed. What is more interesting is the clear case of give and take as shown in the following anecdote involving one Muhammad Yunus, a Bangladeshi businessman/con-man whom Clinton repeatedly assisted even though his bank was confiscated.

Muhammad Yunus, a Bangladeshi economist who won the 2006 Nobel Peace Prize for pioneering low-interest “microcredit” for poor business owners, met with Clinton three times and talked with her by phone during a period when Bangladeshi government authorities investigated his oversight of a nonprofit bank and ultimately pressured him to resign from the bank’s board. Throughout the process, he pleaded for help in messages routed to Clinton, and she ordered aides to find ways to assist him.

American affiliates of his nonprofit Grameen Bank had been working with the Clinton Foundation’s Clinton Global Initiative programs as early as 2005, pledging millions of dollars in microloans for the poor. Grameen America, the bank’s nonprofit U.S. flagship, which Yunus chairs, has given between $100,000 and $250,000 to the foundation — a figure that bank spokeswoman Becky Asch said reflects the institution’s annual fees to attend CGI meetings. Another Grameen arm chaired by Yunus, Grameen Research, has donated between $25,000 and $50,000.

As it turns out, Yunus may have had quite a few shady dealings behind his back, so many in fact that Bangladesh ultiamtely seized control of his bank, even as the State Department did everything in its power to help him out.

As a U.S. senator from New York, Clinton, as well as then-Massachusetts Sen. John Kerry and two other senators in 2007 sponsored a bill to award a congressional gold medal to Yunus. He got one but not until 2010, a year after Obama awarded him a Presidential Medal of Freedom.

Yunus first met with Clinton in Washington in April 2009. That was followed six months later by an announcement by USAID, the State Department’s foreign aid arm, that it was partnering with the Grameen Foundation, a nonprofit charity run by Yunus, in a $162 million commitment to extend its microfinance concept abroad. USAID also began providing loans and grants to the Grameen Foundation, totaling $2.2 million over Clinton’s tenure.

By September 2009, Yunus began complaining to Clinton’s top aides about what he perceived as poor treatment by Bangladesh’s government. His bank was accused of financial mismanagement of Norwegian government aid money — a charge that Norway later dismissed as baseless. But Yunus told Melanne Verveer, a long-time Clinton aide who was an ambassador-at-large for global women’s issues, that Bangladesh officials refused to meet with him and asked the State Department for help in pressing his case. “Please see if the issues of Grameen Bank can be raised in a friendly way,” he asked Verveer. Yunus sent “regards to H” and cited an upcoming Clinton Global Initiative event he planned to attend. Clinton ordered an aide: “Give to EAP rep,” referring the problem to the agency’s top east Asia expert.

Yunus continued writing to Verveer as pressure mounted on his bank. In December 2010, responding to a news report that Bangladesh’s prime minister was urging an investigation of Grameen Bank, Clinton told Verveer that she wanted to discuss the matter with her East Asia expert “ASAP.”

Clinton called Yunus in March 2011 after the Bangladesh government opened an inquiry into his oversight of Grameen Bank. Yunus had told Verveer by email that “the situation does not allow me to leave the country.” By mid-May, the Bangladesh government had forced Yunus to step down from the bank’s board. Yunus sent Clinton a copy of his resignation letter. In a separate note to Verveer, Clinton wrote: “Sad indeed.”

Clinton met with Yunus a second time in Washington in August 2011 and again in the Bangladesh capital of Dhaka in May 2012. Clinton’s arrival in Bangladesh came after Bangladesh authorities moved to seize control of Grameen Bank’s effort to find new leaders. Speaking to a town hall audience, Clinton warned the Bangladesh government that “we do not want to see any action taken that would in any way undermine or interfere in the operations of the Grameen Bank.”

At that point we assume Yunus’ political (and financial) goodwill with Clinton courtesy of his prior donations, had ran out.

Then there was Blackstone:

In another case, Clinton was host at a September 2009 breakfast meeting at the New York Stock Exchange that listed Blackstone Group chairman Stephen Schwarzman as one of the attendees. Schwarzman’s firm is a major Clinton Foundation donor, but he personally donates heavily to GOP candidates and causes. One day after the breakfast, according to Clinton emails, the State Department was working on a visa issue at Schwarzman’s request. In December that same year, Schwarzman’s wife, Christine, sat at Clinton’s table during the Kennedy Center Honors. Clinton also introduced Schwarzman, then chairman of the Kennedy Center, before he spoke.

Blackstone donated between $250,000 and $500,000 to the Clinton Foundation. Eight Blackstone executives also gave between $375,000 and $800,000 to the foundation. And Blackstone’s charitable arm has pledged millions of dollars in commitments to three Clinton Global aid projects ranging from the U.S. to the Mideast. Blackstone officials did not make Schwarzman available for comment.

There are various other examples of outside donors purchasing benefits from Hillary, although for the full picture to emerge, they would all have to be revealed to connect all the dots, and that will likely never happen.

The good news for Hillary – if bad for Donald Trump – is that the meetings between Hillary and foundation donors do not appear to violate legal agreements Clinton and former president Bill Clinton signed before she joined the State Department in 2009. However, as AP puts, it, “the frequency of the overlaps shows the intermingling of access and donations, and fuels perceptions that giving the foundation money was a price of admission for face time with Clinton.”

As Indiana Senator Richard Lugar, who had previously grilled Hillary on her Foundation ties, said he hoped that the Clintons would make a “clean break from the foundation”.

“The Clintons, as they approach the presidency, if they are successful, will have to work with their attorneys to make certain that rules of the road are drawn up to give confidence to them and the American public that there will not be favoritism,” Lugar said.

Alas, it is far too late for that, because if the above confirms anything, it is that Hillary was the undisputed master of merging the US State Department – an organization tasked with helping all the people, not just those who donated to her personal charity – with the Hillary Foundation, and thus, with the “charitable organizations” ultra wealthy sponsors. For her next act, she will repeat the same merger, only this time it will involve the US presidency.

There Is A Line!!

by T.L.Davis via Christian Mercenary blog,

There is a war being waged in America, but only one side is fighting.  The progressives, or Marxists, or outright Communists have been waging war against middle America, using every diabolical means available, for decades, perhaps a century, but middle America is too busy just trying to survive to bother with them.  Like the day when Barack Obama declared ISIS to be the Junior Varsity team, middle America considers this war being waged on them as insignificant to their lives, too distant and too petty.  Yes, some useless and pathetic residual guilt is responsible for some of their acquiescence.

Yet, the Marxists have taken ground steadily, pushing and shoving against the pillars of traditional American culture until they have begun to rattle the foundations.  Still, middle America shrugs at these advancements, hopefully ignoring them, waiting for something to cause the Marxists to give up.  But, they will never give up.  They are not stronger than middle America, but they are more persistent and right now, they are aided by every structure of government, the banking industry, the Federal Reserve, the media, entertainment, sports figures, the entire K-college educational system, or so it seems.  We will never really know the truth, because we get information from the media and they are liars.

The media covers up for crimes, preferring the lies of omission to the truth of objective reporting.  That is all really up to them, but they have become nothing other than Baghdad Bob, who proclaimed to Iraqi television that there was nothing amiss in Baghdad while American tanks rolled in the street behind him.  That is our media today and like Baghdad Bob, they are covering for their leaders: Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton.  They sound as ridiculous as he did and are as transparent.

In decades hence, the media will be forced to wear the shame they should feel today, and the people that listened to them will feel as stupid as followers of Jim Jones, but that is another post for another day.

The crowds in the streets of Milwaukee are not their own masters at it might seem to them.  They are foot soldiers in a bigger battle.  The Marxists came for Russia and China, what reason would they have to bypass America?  How?  Through convincing the discontented that they could get satisfaction by attacking the enemies of the masters.  Time after time, place after place, it was all the same.  Barack Obama, perhaps the most notable Marxist of our time, with the background to prove it, is pulling all the strings while George Soros is pulling his.  It was clear when his Attorney General made it clear that the Obama Administration would stand behind the Marxist backed Black Lives Matter no matter what.  That was the signal, in front of the whole nation that the administration was with them.

So, this is what the Marxists want: America.  They will use Muslim jihadists; they will use discontented minorities from the inner cities; they will use IRS agents; they will use the FBI, DOJ, CIA, DEA, DHS, ACLU, ATF, EPA, FCC, FDA, USDA, and even the ACLU.  They will use the power of the United States government; they will use the media; they will use sports figures; they will even use relatives within the family.

We are about to see the masks come off.  That is what this is all about, all of this unrest, all of these riots.  It is time for them to show middle America what progress they have made over the past century.  Of course, they have to make a serious push to get our guns, first.  They have to disarm the populace they intend to enslave.  Then they will offer the chance to live our lives as before, watching television, texting, facebooking, etc, all under the new standards and rules of communication, you understand.

There is a line where middle America figures it out and begins to fight back.  I don’t know where that is, but it is there.  We saw it on 9/12, however fleeting it might have been.  Perhaps it is when they realize that their children will be beaten and killed to satisfy the bloodlust of a tyrant.  All I know is, if they do not see the line by then, it is because they are on the wrong side of it.

Ryan Lochte Has Lost All Of His Sponsorship Deals

Ryan Lochte has now lost his last two remaining sponsorships, those with Airweave and Gentle Hair Removal, meaning as of this moment, his Rio gas station “exager-gate” stint has cost him all of his future advertising endorsements.

Lochte’s little stint has cost him millions in endorsements.

The bad news should not come as a surprise to Lochte who when asked by NBC’s Matt Lauer if his original version of the story could cost him his endorsements, Lochte answered it could. “And that’s something I’m going to have to live with,” Lochte said.

The loss of endorsements may not be all the bad news: Lochte also faces potential disciplinary action from the U.S. Olympic Committee, with CEO Scott Blackmun saying Sunday that further action was coming. USA Swimming and the IOC could both sanction Lochte.

Sadly, the only possible career choice left for Ryan Lochte is to become the democrat nominee for president of the USA.

Pickle jar strong – who needs medical records when you can open a jar of pickles

If Jimmy Kimmel loses his spot on late night TV, he can always go to work for Kim Jong-un’s propaganda department.

All you need to know from Dr. Jimmy Kimmel.  Move along.  Nothing to see here:

Hillary Clinton is 68 years old. She’s been diagnosed with cerebral venous thrombosis, head trauma, cancer, brain infection, autoimmune diseases and inborn clotting, per the Washington Post. She’s currently taking blood thinners. Four years ago, Clinton fainted, hit her head and suffered a concussion.

She’s also the odds-on favorite to assume one of the most strenuous jobs on the planet as president of the United States.

But lately the media have become outraged that Clinton’s health is being broached at all.

Many are calling for internet bans:

New York Times’ columnist Farhad Manjoo called on Google to censor any story pertaining to Clinton’s health.

    Google should fix this. It shouldn’t give quarter to conspiracy theorists https://t.co/frnJTHq113 pic.twitter.com/kZLTI4JxlU

— Farhad Manjoo (@fmanjoo) August 21, 2016

Keep in mind the same media hounded John McCain even after he released reams of medical records:

http://www.nytimes.com/packages/pdf/politics/JSM_HealthRecords_052308.pdf

John McCain faced intense media scrutiny when he ran for president at age 71 in 2008. The headlines included:

    McCain’s age is a legitimate issue – Politico, May 22, 2008

    McCain’s Age and Past Health Problems Could Be An Issue in the Presidential Race – U.S. World and News Report, May 8, 2008

    And…

    McCain faces more questions on age, health – CNN, October 8, 2008

But Hillary can open a jar of pickles! Forget the fact that she is sometimes seen wearing eyeglasses with prisms, as are used to correct double vision.

GettyImages-159924056-hillary-glasses-2 copyForget the fact that she has been caught on camera several times having what appears to be seizures.

Hillary-Clinton-has-seizure-when-talking-to-reporters-ImgurForget the fact that Clinton lost her balance “such that two men had to rush to keep her from falling down”, according to reporters.

521591500Forget the fact that she can’t even climb 4 steps without help and forget the fact that she wears diapers (now also a fact thanks to Wikileaks).

Hillary-being-helped-up-stairs-strokeForget the fact that a man who always stays close to her, who was pretending to be a Secret Service officer, was photographed carrying something in his hand that looks like an autoinjector of Diazepam for seizures.

hillary-handler-seizure-drug-575x408

hillary-handler-diazepam-575x816Forget the fact that this mystery man rushes to her side every time she gets disoriented and blanks out.

Hillary-seizure-doctorAnd we know why she wears pantsuits constantly.

She has a hidden catheter.

In case you don’t know, a catheter is a device used to empty one’s bladder. (Perhaps this is why she decided not to use the restroom with another woman during the primary debate, which caused her to be 12 minutes late.)

“The way the tube wraps around (Hillary’s) leg is exactly how a Foley catheter is positioned. The tube leads to a sticky patch above the knee that has a little plastic clamp that holds the tube as it goes into the drainage bag down on the calf, ” an anonymous nurse stated.

Take a gander at this:

I-j3mh0edYnlUvUgQ9b-zU5dA26gbUepjOB7mVJ18tk

5pL9Rz

At this point, she must address concerns facing her health. It was rumored that she had early on-set Parkinson’s disease — but this new revelation only helps confirm that she does.

“(This) makes sense. Parkinson’s dementia, or just dementia in general, is associated with urinary incontinence. Those who suffer lose voluntary control of their external urinary sphincter,” an expert in medicine stated.

This needs to be spread everywhere — she must be held accountable as it is her responsibility to inform the American public of her dissolving health conditions.

But forget all of that nonsense.  Jimmy Kimmel had her open a pre-opened can of pickles, proving she is in tip top shape.

If you can’t answer this question, you might be a democrat

Q: If a private citizen bribes a judge to get out of a DUI, which of the two is more corrupt?

If you don’t know the answer, you might be a democrat.

Any society that tolerates this level of corruption from its government, the very ones in charge of upholding the law,  as “business as usual” is not just sick–it’s hopeless.  Stick a fork in it.

That is why there is no comparison between Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump.  Even if they were both money grubbing, lying, opportunists, Trump is a private business man.  He has not (yet) been entrusted to create laws, enforce laws, uphold laws, or represent the citizens of the USA.  Hillary has been entrusted to do all of those things.  That is what makes her much more corrupt and much more dangerous.

Hillary has used the office of First Lady of the USA, Senator, and Secretary of State to defraud citizens, sell U.S. secrets, sell government favors, all to enrich herself.

Just like a fish rots from the head, it is this top down government corruption that has turned our entire society into a layer-cake of lies.  Our economy little more than institutionalized racketeering and our politics a corrupt auction-house of pay-for-play, influence-peddling, money-grubbing and brazen pandering for votes.

None of this would be possible without a willing government accomplice.  Whatever the Trumps of the world have done, it takes the Hillarys of the world to make it possible.

FBI Probes Attempted Beheading In Roanoke, Virginia By “Allah Akbar” Yelling Attacker

Authorities STILL aren’t even sure whether the attacker (in custody) is an American citizen.

farooquiIt may come as a surprise to Americans who were keenly following their favorite media outlet, that on Saturday, in Roanoke, Virginia, there was an attempted ISIS-inspired beheading attempt. Surprising, because virtually nobody covered it. However, as ABC reports this morning, the FBI has launched a federal terrorism investigation into a weekend stabbing in Roanoke, VA, looking at whether the attacker may have been trying to behead his victim in an alleged ISIS-inspired assault.

While it is unclear if there was a media blackout surrounding the attack, what is more troubling is that according to ABC, US authorities had been aware of the alleged attacker, 20-year-old Wasil Farooqui, of the Roanoke area, for some time. In the past year, he traveled to Turkey and may have tried to sneak into Syria, where ISIS is recruiting and inspiring sympathizers from across the world, sources said.

As ABC adds, Farooqui was arrested Saturday by Roanoke County Police on charges of assault with malicious wounding, and he’s being held without bond at the Western Virginia Regional Jail, according to the sources and a jail database.

During the Saturday stabbing, Farooqui allegedly injured a man and woman at an apartment complex in Roanoke, yelling “Allah Akbar” as he attacked them with a knife, sources told ABC News. Authorities believe he may have been trying to behead the male victim, who was likely picked at random, ABC News was told.

CBS adds that the victims told police they were attacked as they entered The upscale Pines Apartments just before 8 p.m. The male was able to fight off the attacker, who fled the scene, police said.

Farooqui and his two alleged victims were hospitalized after the attack. They were in serious condition according to local news.

While officers were at the hospital with the victims, a male, subsequently identified as Farooqui, came into the emergency room with injuries of his own, authorities said. He met the description of the suspect in the stabbing, and further investigation by police led to his arrest, they said.

“The FBI is working with the Police Department following the incident that occurred on Saturday evening,” the head of the FBI’s Richmond field office, Special Agent In Charge Adam Lee, said in a statement. “While I cannot discuss details of the investigation at this time, I do want to reassure the community that we are working to determine the nature of the incident.”

It was not clear if Farooqui had a lawyer. It was also not clear how, unlike in Europe, where any attempted beheading gets media coverage within seconds of taking place, this event which took place three days ago, has so far avoided the broader press.

A U.S. intelligence source tells CBS News Farooqui has been on the FBI’s radar for months and is believed to be “self-radicalized”… even though other sources confirm he traveled to Turkey and may have been in Syrua. Authorities aren’t even sure whether Farooqui is an American citizen.
