Spanish Police Shoot 5 Terror Suspects Dead Following Terror Van Rampage in Barcelona, Spain

SPANISH POLICE THWART ANOTHER TERRORIST VAN ATTACK IN SPAIN

Reuters is reporting that Spanish police have killed five would-be terrorist attackers after confronting them early on Friday in a town south of Barcelona. Just hours earlier Islamic terrorists drove a van into crowds of people killing 14 and severely injuring hundreds. According to reports, the five men attempted to drive into tourists on the Cambrils seafront. Their vehicle overturned and some of these terrorists got out of the vehicle and began stabbing people. Thankfully, four were shot dead at the scene and the fifth was killed a few hundred meters away by police. Obviously, this attempted terror attack in Cambrils is connected to the one that occurred earlier in the day in Barcelona.

Spanish police shot dead five would-be attackers after confronting them early on Friday in a town south of Barcelona where hours earlier a suspected Islamist militant drove a van into crowds, killing 13 people and wounding scores of others.

Islamic State said the perpetrators had been responding to its call for action by carrying out Thursday’s rampage along Barcelona’s most famous avenue, which was thronged with tourists enjoying an afternoon stroll at the peak of the summer season.

Bodies, many motionless, were left strewn across the avenue and authorities said the toll of dead, which included several children, could rise, with more than 100 injured.

Hours later in the early hours of Friday, as security forces hunted for the van’s driver, police said they killed five suspects in Cambrils, 120 km (75 miles) south along the coast from Barcelona, to thwart a separate attack.

The five men attempted to drive into tourists on the Cambrils seafront, police said. Their car overturned and some of them began stabbing people. Four were shot dead at the scene and the fifth was killed a few hundred meters away, police said.

Police said they had arrested a Moroccan and a man from Spain’s north African enclave of Melilla, though neither was the driver of the van. He was seen escaping on foot and was still at large. A third man was arrested in the town of Ripoll on Friday.

TERROR ATTACK IN SPAIN …

Dozens of people are reportedly injured and dead after a van slammed into the crowded Las Ramblas tourist hotspot in Barcelona, Spain. It is being reported that 13 people have been killed an up to 100 injured in the terror attack. A white van drove through crowd of people swerving from side to side purposely trying to mow down as many individuals as possible. ISIS has since claimed responsibility for the attack. From what it appears, this was not a lone wolf terror attack, it was perpetrated by a terror cell. Sadly, the death toll has risen to 14.

Barcelona Terror Attack: 13 Dead, Dozens Injured – NBC Nightly News

A manhunt was underway for the driver of a van that mowed through crowds of tourists on Barcelona’s most famous avenue on Thursday, killing at least 13 people in an attack that was claimed by Islamic State.

Authorities said the death toll could rise, with more than 100 people injured, some seriously.

Police said they arrested two men, a Moroccan and a man from Spain’s north African enclave of Melilla, though neither was the driver. Witnesses said the driver fled on foot.

It was still not clear how many attackers had been involved.

Hours beforehand, one person was killed in an explosion in a house in a town southwest of Barcelona, in an incident linked to the attack, police added. Residents of the house were preparing explosives, a police source said.

As the manhunt continued into the night, police said several attackers were killed in a shootout during an operation against what they called a possible “terror attack” in Cambrils, another town south of Barcelona.

Earlier in Barcelona, witnesses said the white van zigzagged at high speed down Las Ramblas, a busy avenue thronged with tourists, ramming pedestrians and cyclists, sending some hurtling through the air and leaving bodies strewn in its wake.

UPDATE I: At least 14 dead, 100 injured in Spain attacks, 5 ‘terrorists’ killed in police operation.

Following a deadly vehicle-ramming attack in Barcelona Thursday afternoon — which left at least 13 people killed — a police operation was carried out 90 minutes south of the city in Cambrilla, during which five “terrorists” were killed, officials said.

Police said the operation was in response to a “possible terrorist attack.”

Five “terrorists” were killed in the operation, but initially officials said four people were injured and one person was wounded and detained.

On Twitter, police said they “have killed the alleged perpetrators.” Catalan police told ABC News that they believe the incident in Cambrils is related to the attack in Barcelona earlier Thursday.

Authorities confirmed early Friday morning, the explosive belts carried by the alleged terrorists, were fake.

“We work on the hypothesis that the terrorists killed in Cambrils would be related to the events in Barcelona and Alcanar,” police said. Alcanar is the location of the earlier deadly house explosion that police said was believed to be connected to the Barcelona plot.

“What About The Alt-Left?” in Charlottesville, VA … President Trump Destroys the Liberal MSM (VIDEO)

SORRY MSM, TRUMP IS CORRECT … THE ALT-LEFT WAS JUST AS BAD AND THEY SHOULDN’T GET A PASS JUST BECAUSE THE MEDIA IS THE LEFT.

Yesterday, President Donald Trump did the unthinkable to the MSM and caused them, the LEFT and the Never-Trumpers to lose their collective minds, HE STOOD UP TO THEM. Not only did Trump stand up to the media, he fought back. Sorry MSM, but President Trump is the only one telling the truth here, much to the chagrin of your leftist agenda. President Trump answered the liberal media’s question with a question, “What about the Alt-Left, don’t they have any semblance of guilt” of what transpired in  Charlottesville, VA? Who is going to say that there were good actors in what transpired this weekend in Charlottesville, VA? Seriously? You had the vile KKK and white supremacists and the Alt-Left, Antifa, who came there to cause trouble. No one, especially President Trump is defending any of them. How could any responsible person not blame both sides? Sadly a 32-year-old woman died when she was plowed into by a car driven by a crazed, Neo-Nazi.

Like it or not, but there is this thing called freedom of speech in this country. In many cases it makes one blood boil, like when hate is spewed by the KKK and fat Leftist groups as well. That is what living in America means. I don’t see the MSM getting into a tiff when the American flag is being burned by people on the Left, or when 5 police officers were murdered by a member of Black Lives Matters. Of course white supremacists are for a master race, that sadly is their delusional dream. However, isn’t that what La Raza is about too? President Trump has denounced both sides, and rightfully so. But because that does not play into the liberal MSM agenda, they call him unhinged. Really, a pox on all the individuals that were there, except the ones who were peacefully protesting.

TRUMP: Okay, what about the alt-left that came charging at [indiscernible] – excuse me – what about the alt-left that came charging at the, as you say, the alt right? Do they have any semblance of guilt?

TRUMP: What about this? What about the fact that they came charging – they came charging with clubs in their hands swinging clubs? Do they have any problem? I think they do.

TRUMP: As far as I’m concerned, that was a horrible, horrible day. Wait a minute, I’m not finished. I’m not finished, fake news. That was a horrible day.

TRUMP: I will tell you something. I watched those very closely, much more closely than you people watched it. And you had, you had a group on one side that was bad. And you had a group on the other side that was also very violent. And nobody wants to say that, but I’ll say it right now. You had a group – you had a group on the other side that came charging in without a permit, and they were very, very violent.

Full text: Trump’s comments on white supremacists, ‘alt-left’ in Charlottesville.

TRUMP: I did that before. Senator McCain? Senator McCain. You mean the one that voted against Obamacare? Who is Senator McCain? You mean senator McCain who voted against us getting good health care?

REPORTER: Senator McCain said that the alt-right is behind these attacks, and he linked that same group to those that perpetrated the attack in Charlottesville.

TRUMP: Well, I don’t know. I can’t tell you. I’m sure Senator McCain must know what he is talking about, but when you say the alt-right, define alt-right to me. You define it. Go ahead. Define it for me, come on, let’s go.

[...]

TRUMP: I will tell you something. I watched those very closely, much more closely than you people watched it. And you had, you had a group on one side that was bad. And you had a group on the other side that was also very violent. And nobody wants to say that, but I’ll say it right now. You had a group – you had a group on the other side that came charging in without a permit, and they were very, very violent.

REPORTER: Do you think what you call the alt left is the same as neo-Nazis?

TRUMP: Those people – all of those people, excuse me – I’ve condemned neo-Nazis. I’ve condemned many different groups, but not all of those people were neo-Nazis, believe me. Not all of those people were white supremacists by any stretch.

REPORTER: Well, white nationalists –

TRUMP: Those people were also there, because they wanted to protest the taking down of a statue Robert E. Lee. So – excuse me – and you take a look at some of the groups and you see, and you’d know it if you were honest reporters, which in many cases you’re not. Many of those people were there to protest the taking down of the statue of Robert E. Lee. So this week, it’s Robert E. Lee, I noticed that Stonewall Jackson’s coming down. I wonder, is it George Washington next week? And is it Thomas Jefferson the week after. You know, you really do have to ask yourself, where does it stop?

Fox News – Hannity 8/14/17 … Discusses the Hate & Riots in Charlottesville Caused by Extremism … Don’t Ever Let the MSM Define You! (VIDEO)

THE HATE BAITERS ARE OUT IN FORCE … THE MSM LOOKS TO DIVIDE AMERICA …

It is hard to believe we have this type of hate, ignorance and racists in America today. However, this is such a small pocket of extremist hate on both sides of the political spectrum, right and left. This is what happens when hate meets hate. Thankfully, this is a minority of people, fringe groups, but you would never know that if you listened to the media.

It is a sad state of affairs when the liberal MSM tries to point blame at everyday, average, run of the mill Americans who are Republicans, conservatives or are on the Right, with extremest, ignorant white supremacist, Nazi types. The sick MSM took the opportunity this weekend to call President Trump and in turn all who voted for him as racists too. REALLY? The LEFT and the Attack Trump media took this tragic event as an opportunity to spread their own division and hate. It is bad enough we have this kind of evil, hate and ignorance in America, do we really need the MSM fanning the flames and calling hard working, law abiding citizens who they agree with racists too?

Oh the hypocrisy of the LEFT and the  MSM … isn’t it them who remind us all the time that radical Islam is not Islam? We are constantly told that Islam is a religion of peace every time there is a terrorist event and that all Muslims should not be held responsible for the actions of the radical, extremist few. So what’s the difference? Nope, not when it comes to racism, some how the acts of white supremacists some how reflect the President and all whites who voted for him. REALLY?

Or what about the Bernie Sanders campaign volunteer who opened fire yesterday in Alexandria, Va on Republican Congressman as they practiced baseball for an upcoming charity baseball game? Weren’t we told this was not a reflection of all of the LEFT? We were told by Sen. Sanders that he condemned these actions. Hell, this guy volunteered for his campaign and we give the LEFT and Sanders a pass. But oh no, not when the vile MSM and their sick divisive agenda is at work. Their double standard and  hypocrisy is disgusting.

Big Trump Win as North Korea Dictator Kim Jong Un BLINKS and Backs Off Guam Missile-Attack Threat

AND THE MSM IGNORES THIS HUGE TRUMP WIN … PEACE THRU STRENGTH WORKS … NORTH KOREAN DICTATOR KIM JONG UN BLINKS!

FIRE & FURY, LOCKED & LOADED WON!!! As reported at the WSJ, North Korean Leader Kim Jong Un has decided not to launch a threatened against Guam as previously stated. In a face saving moment, the the North Korean dictator warned that he could change his mind “if the Yankees persist in their extremely dangerous reckless actions.” Who has been reckless? But the story that is going unreported is that President Donald Trump just had a huge foreign policy victory and the MSM acts like it never happened. Not only did the United States under President Trump win a 15-0 victory in the United Nations gaining further sanctions against North Korea, but Trump also go China to state that if North Korea attacks the U.S., China should remain neutral. In other words, North Korea would be on their own. HUGE!

President Trump was ridiculed by the LEFT, Democrats and the MSM for his actions he took against North Korea. Trump was called reckless by the media, not the North Korean dictator. Look who was correct and look who was wrong. TRUMP WAS RIGHT!

donald_trump_-_make_america_great_again

Via WSJ:

The report, published early Tuesday, could help dial back tensions that had spiraled last week following an exchange of threats between North Korea and U.S. President Donald Trump.

Mr. Trump warned Pyongyang last week that the U.S. military was “locked and loaded” and could engulf the North in “fire and fury,” while North Korea, through its state media, had threatened to fire four missiles in a bid to surround the U.S. territory of Guam in “enveloping fire.”

North Korean state media said in its report Tuesday that Mr. Kim had made his decision not to fire on Guam after visiting a military command post and examining a military plan presented to him by his senior officers.

While Mr. Kim said he had decided not to launch the attack on Guam yet, he advised the U.S. “to take into full account” whether the current standoff was to its benefit. He also said it was incumbent on the U.S. to “stop at once arrogant provocations against the DPRK and unilateral demands and not provoke it any longer,” using an abbreviation for the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea, the formal name for North Korea.

“If the Yankees persist in their extremely dangerous reckless actions on the Korean Peninsula and in its vicinity, testing the self-restraint of the DPRK, the [North] will make an important decision as it already declared,” the report quoted Mr. Kim as saying.

Kim Jung un pouty

CNBC - China hands Trump a win on North Korea crisis. In the end, China decided to back off their support at any cost of North Korea and agreed to state that they would remain neutral if North Korea Dictator Kim Jong Un was so foolish and reckless as to attack the United States with nuclear war. So why did China back away from what was their position on North Korea for decades? Was it maybe because Chinese President Xi Jinping was at a dinner with President Trump at the Mar-a-Lago estate in Florida, when he got to see up close and personal how committed Trump was as President when he ordered 59 U.S. cruise missiles to rain down on a Syrian military airfield in response to what Trump had called “a disgrace to humanity.” The liberal media made a joke of it, but it sent a message to the adults in the room. Note to the LEFT, Peace through strength works.

What a difference a few days make.

After a weekend filled with a series of conciliatory statements from China, some of them downright surprising, the situation with North Korea seems to be less tense right now, which could be construed as a major win for the Trump team.

To be specific, the big move came Monday as China agreed to ban imports of North Korean iron, lead, and coal as part of new U.N. sanctions on Pyongyang. That’s hitting Kim Jon Un’s regime where it hurts.

But there was also the statement in the Chinese-run state newspaper Global Times on Friday that said that if North Korea attacks the U.S., China should remain neutral. In other words, they’d be on their own.

And there was even calming talk from this side of the Pacific. In a jointly-written editorial in Monday’s Wall Street Journal, Secretary of State Rex Tillerson and Secretary of Defense James Mattis both insisted the Trump administration is not seeking regime change in North Korea and wants a diplomatic resolution to this dispute.

While these developments do not fully constitute a real solution to the potential threats North Korea’s nuclear and missile programs pose to the region and the world, everyone’s nervous meter seems to have gone down several notches.

WHO HONESTLY THINKS THIS COULD HAVE HAPPENED UNDER A PRESIDENT CLINTON, AND IT NEVER DID UNDER OBAMA.
