American Teen,19 Year Old Mason Wells Survives Attack in Brussels … His Third Brush With Terrorism

TALK ABOUT HAVING 9 LIVES, OR AT LEAST THREE …

19 year old Mason Wells is either lucky or a lightening rod for trouble. The teenager has actually survived three brushes with terrorism.

An American injured in the Brussels terror attacks has already been impacted previous terror attacks in Boston and Paris, his family said.

Mason Wells, 19, was injured in the bombing at the Brussels airport along with two other American Mormon missionaries who had gone to help check in other missionaries who were traveling to the U.S.

Wells suffered a ruptured Achilles tendon, shrapnel injures, as well as second- and third-degree burns on his face and hands after the bombing, his father Chad Wells told ABC News.

The teen missionary had previously been impacted by other terror attacks in Paris and Boston.

“This is his third terrorist attack,” Chad Wells said, noting he was with his son just a block from the Boston Marathon bombing.

“This is the third time that sadly in our society that we have a connection to a bomb blast,” Wells told ABC News. “We live in a dangerous world and not everyone is kind and loving.”

The Liberal Girls at The View Agree with Donald Trump on Terrorism (VIDEO)

WOW … DID YOU EVER THINK THIS WOULD HAPPEN … LIBS ON THE VIEW AGREE WITH DONALD TRUMP.

Amazing, simply amazing … from the gals on the view came the following, they thought Donald Trump sounded reasonable in response to the terrorist attack in Brussels and what he would do if he were the president of the United States. Terrorism and the vile and senseless murder of innocent individuals is finally even reaching the most liberal among us that leadership is needed, forceful leadership. Not a muted response to terrorism like what Hillary Clinton did following the terror event. Or like Barack Obama attending a baseball game in Cuba and pretending like ISIS is the JV.

They called Donald Trump, the voice of reason. This is huge folks. The View just picked The Donald over Hillary on terror.

Patrick McDermott, Olivia Newton-John’s Boyfriend, Who Vanished 11 Years Ago Seen in Mexico

 Patrick McDermott has been spotted again …

It has been 11 years since Patrick McDermott, the former boyfriend of singer Olivia Newton-John, disappeared. However, according to reports Patrick McDermott, who dated the Australian star for nine years, has been found alive and well after vanishing on a fishing trip more than a decade ago. Woman’s Day claims that McDermott is living in Mexico and has settled down with a European girlfriend. As reported at WGNTV, private investigator Philip Klein made the bombshell claim, saying he learned Patrick McDermott, who was last seen June 30, 2005 on a fishing boat near San Pedro, California, is now living in a small village in Mexico near Puerto Vallarta.

Olivia Newton-John’s former boyfriend, who disappeared 11 years ago, has been found secretly living in Mexico with a new lover, according to fresh reports.

Woman’s Day claims Patrick McDermott, who dated the Australian star for nine years, has been found alive and well after vanishing on a fishing trip more than a decade ago.

The magazine claims that fresh evidence confirms previous reports that McDermott is living in Mexico, having settled down with a European girlfriend.

Investigator John Nazarian told the publication: “It’s rumored he was with a German national. I spoke to people there. The girl he was travelling with was described as having a German accent.”

Although speculative theories at the time ranged from self-harm to accidental death, Mr. Nazarian described them as “preposterous.”

“To come up with the conclusion that he fell off the boat, and allegedly no-one saw him fall off the boat, is the most preposterous thing I’ve ever heard in my life,” he said.

McDermott was 48 at the time he went missing from the fishing boat Freedom, which had set off from San Pedro Marina for a fishing trip on June 30th, 2005.

None of the 22 passengers saw McDermott go overboard, and he was not reported missing until a week later when Ms Newton-John contacted authorities after he failed to show up for a family gathering.

U.S. investigators launched an exhaustive search for the cameraman, but two months later revealed McDermott had faked his own death and was living in Mexico.

Officials also revealed that McDermott disappeared shortly after filing for bankruptcy, having unpaid debts totalling more than $30,000 at the time, including $8000 in child support owed to his ex-wife Yvette Nipar for their son, Chance.

Terror Attack in Brussels, Belgium … Bomb Explosions at the Zaventem Airport and Maalbeck Metro, At Least 28 People Dead (VIDEO)

BREAKING NEWSTwo bomb blasts tore through the departures area of Zaventem airport shortly after 08:00 local time (07:00 GMT).

Terrorist bomb explosions have taken place at the Zaventem Airport and at the Brussels metro. It is suspected that the explosion at the airport was a result of a suicide bomber. Also, another bomb went off a sort time later at the Maalbeck metro station.  The AP is reporting that at least 28 people are dead and many more injured.

The Belgian Prime Minister, Charles Michel said speaking after the attacks.“Our fears have become reality.” 

Many people have been killed or seriously injured in terrorist attacks at Brussels international airport and a city metro station, Belgium’s PM says.

Two explosions hit Zaventem airport at about 07:00 GMT, and another struck Maelbeek metro station an hour later.

The government has not confirmed casualty numbers. Brussels transport officials say 15 died at Maelbeek and media say up to 13 died at the airport.

Belgium has now raised its terror threat to its highest level.

UPDATE I: Explosions rock Brussels airport, subway; 28 reported dead.

Explosions, at least one likely caused by a suicide bomber, rocked the Brussels airport and subway system Tuesday, prompting a lockdown of the Belgian capital and heightened security across Europe. At least 28 people were reported dead.

A spokesman for the Brussels Metro said 15 people were killed and 55 injured in an explosion on a train, and Belgian media reported at least 13 dead in two explosions at the airport, with many others injured.

Belgium raised its terror alert to the highest level, diverting planes and trains and ordering people to stay where they were. Airports across Europe immediately tightened security.

“We are at war,” French Prime Minister Manuel Valls said after a crisis meeting called by the French president. “We have been subjected for the last few months in Europe to acts of war.”

European security officials have been bracing for a major attack for weeks, and warned that the Islamic State group was actively preparing to strike. The arrest Friday of a key suspect in the November attacks in Paris heightened those fears, as investigators said many more people were involved than originally thought, and that some are still on the loose.

There was no immediate claim of responsibility for Tuesday’s attacks, and Belgian Prime Minister Charles Michel said there was no immediate evidence linking key Paris suspect Salah Abdeslam to them. After his arrest Friday, Abdeslam told authorities he had created a new network and was planning new attacks.

Belgian media reported that 13 people were killed at the airport, where two explosions splattered blood across the departure lounge and collapsed the ceiling. The explosions hit during the busy morning rush. Smoke was seen billowing out of the terminal.

At least 1 fatality ocurred at the airport, federal police told NBC News. Health Minister Maggie de Block told a journalist with the Belga News Agency that the explosions at the airport killed at least 11 people and wounded 81. NBC News was not immediately able to confirm the report.

All trains, planes, trams and buses were halted in Brussels. The main Midi train station was evacuated.

Sunita Van Heers had come to the train station after seeing the metro was on lockdown. Then police evacuated the station.

“Everybody started panicking, crying, not knowing what was happening,” she said, describing how police ordered people away from the station. “It’s scary.”

UPDATE III: Well Its about time Western Europe Admits they are at War.

“We are at war,” French Prime Minister Manuel Valls said after a crisis meeting called by the French president. “We have been subjected for the last few months in Europe to acts of war.”

European security officials have been bracing for a major attack for weeks, and warned that the Islamic State group was actively preparing to strike. The arrest Friday of a key suspect in the November attacks in Paris heightened those fears, as investigators said many more people were involved than originally thought, and that some are still on the loose.

After his arrest Friday, Abdeslam told authorities he had created a new network and was planning new attacks.

Mexican President Enrique Pena Nieto Compared Donald Trump to Adolf Hitler and Benito Mussolini

NOTE TO MEXICAN PRESIDENT, YOU DO REALIZE ALL YOU ARE DOING TO GAINING MORE SUPPORT FOR TRUMP, RIGHT?

It looks like the current Mexican President Enrique Pena Nieto could use a history lesson or two. The Mexican president recently compared the language of Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump to that of dictators Adolf Hitler and Benito Mussolini. Wow really, Trump called for the extermination of the Jews and wants the US to take back the Sudetenland? But stupid is, what stupid does or in this case, says. The ignorance of some people if breath taking and their words even more so. Protecting a countries sovereignty is hardly like Hitler or Stalin. Having borders and enforcing immigration laws that have already been passed by Congress is hardly the act of a dictator. Or maybe do we want to examine the harsh treatment of Mexico upon those that illegally its country from Central America? Oh, but that’s different. Sorry, but it is hardly fascist to want to protect the United States of America and follow the US Constitution of which an oath is taken to follow.

What is comical about this is that we actually have a self-avowed socialist running on the Democrat side. Not a presumed one, not just a bunch of people calling him one, but an actual one.

Mexican President Enrique Pena Nieto compared the language of Republican presidential hopeful Donald Trump to that of dictators Adolf Hitler and Benito Mussolini in an interview published Monday, and said it has hurt U.S.-Mexico relations.

Asked about Trump, Pena Nieto complained to the Excelsior newspaper about “these strident expressions that seek to propose very simple solutions” and said that sort of language has led to “very fateful scenes in the history of humanity.”

“That’s the way Mussolini arrived and the way Hitler arrived,” Pena Nieto said.

Pena Nieto until now had avoided direct comments on Trump, who has pledged to build a wall along the two countries’ borders and has said Mexican immigrants bring crime and drugs to the U.S. and are “rapists.”

Former Mexican President Vicente Fox Says of Trump’s Wall, “I’m Not Going to Pay For That F*cking Wall” (VIDEO) … Trump Resonds, “It just got 10 feet taller!”

FORMER MEXICAN PRESIDENT HAS SOME WORDS FOR DONALD TRUMP AND HIS WALL

Wow, in an interview with Fusion, former Mexican President Vicente Fox had some strong words for Donald Trump and Hispanics that would vote for the would be US presidential candidate. Fox stated regarding Trumps proposed building of a border wall between Mexico and the United States, “I declare — I’m not going to pay for that f—ing wall. [Trump] should pay for it. He’s got the money.” But that was not the half of it. Fox went on to call Trump a crazy man and that Trump was neither a Republican or a Democrat. He went on to say that Trump is ego-concentric. Fox compared Trump to a false prophet and warned fellow Hispanics to be very careful.

Video warning: Adult language

Former Mexican President Vicente Fox says his nation will not pay for Donald Trump’s proposed border wall.

“I declare — I’m not going to pay for that f—ing wall,” he told Fusion’s Jorge Ramos during an interviewThursday. “[Trump] should pay for it. He’s got the money.”

“This nation is going to fail if it goes into the hands of a crazy guy,” Fox added of the U.S. “Democracy can’t take us to crazy people that don’t know what’s going on in the world today.”

Fox said he was shocked by exit polls from the Nevada GOP presidential caucuses showing some Hispanic support for Trump.

“It worries me, this last caucus in Nevada,” he said. “[He won] 44 percent of Hispanics. I’d like to know who those Hispanics are because they’re followers of a false prophet.

“He’s going to take them to the desert,” Fox continued. “If they think they would benefit from an administration led by Donald Trump, they are wrong. Please, you Hispanics, Latinos in [the] U.S., open your eyes. It’s not to defend our race. It’s not to defend our creed. It’s to defend this very same nation that is hosting you.

UPDATE I: Trump Responds to Vincente Fox at GOP Debate … The wall “just got 10 feet taller!”

The wall Donald Trump would build at the U.S.-Mexican border “just got 10 feet taller” was the the Republican presidential front-runner’s response to a former Mexican president that Mexico’s “not paying for that f***ing wall.”

Trump also called upon the former Mexican president to apologize for dropping the f-bomb at the CNN GOP presidential debate in Houston Thursday.

FUNERAL CRASHER: Wife Noela Rukundo Crashes Her Own Funeral, Much to Husband’s Surprise, Who Had Paid to Have Her Killed … Balenga Kalala, Ultimately Pleaded Guilty & Sentenced to 9 Years in Prison

REAL LIFE FUNERAL CRASHERS,  WHERE’S WILL FERRELL

Noela Rukundo, an Australian woman, returned to her native Africa to travel to Burundi to attend her attend her stepmother’s funeral when she was abducted by a gang of men. They had been ordered by her husband of 10 years to kill her.  The amazing part, she was spared by the hitmen with principles. Hmm, I guess there is sometimes honor among thieves. After having kidnapped her, the men said, they weren’t going to kill her, they didn’t believe in killing women. Instead, they called the husband and told him the job was done.  According to Australia’s The Age newspaper, two days later, they set her free on the side of a road, but not before giving her a cellphone, recordings of their phone conversations with Kalala, and receipts for the $7,000 in Australian dollars they allegedly received in payment.

Noela Rukundo  was presumed dead by her partner and their entire community who held a funeral in her home in Melbourne, Australia, in her memory early last year. Much to all of their surprise, after all of the mourners had left, she approached her former love who was under the impression that his wife was not only dead, but that he had got away with his murderous plan. That’s when she approached him and replied, “Surprise! I’m still alive!” Her husband looked like he’d seen a ghost. Eventually, her husband, Balenga Kalala, pleaded guilty and was sentenced to 9 years in prison.

Balenga Kalala, who arrived in Australia in 2004 as a refugee, paid almost $7,000 to a group of kidnappers to kill the mother of his three children, Noela Rukundo, when she was attending her stepmother’s funeral in Burundi in early 2015.

The group snatched Ms Rukundo at gunpoint outside her hotel in Bujumbura in February and drove her to a secret location.

The WAPO:

Finally, she spotted the man she’d been waiting for. She stepped out of her car, and her husband put his hands on his head in horror.

“Is it my eyes?” she recalled him saying. “Is it a ghost?”

“Surprise! I’m still alive!” she replied.

Far from being elated, the man looked terrified. Five days earlier, he had ordered a team of hit men to kill Rukundo, his partner of 10 years. And they did — well, they told him they did. They even got him to pay an extra few thousand dollars for carrying out the crime.

Now here was his wife, standing before him. In an interview with the BBC on Thursday, Rukundo recalled how he touched her shoulder to find it unnervingly solid. He jumped. Then he started screaming.

“I’m sorry for everything,” he wailed.

But it was far too late for apologies; Rukundo called the police. The husband, Balenga Kalala, ultimately pleaded guilty and was sentenced to nine years in prison for incitement to murder, according to the Australian Broadcasting Corp. (the ABC).
