The Sun newspaper in the UK reported about the March 22 terror attack in London:
Officials have now said the lone wolf maniac was inspired by “Islamic terrorism” and had been investigated for violent extremism by MI5 before he mowed down crowds on Westminster Bridge and stabbed cop Keith Palmer to death outside Parliament.
(British prime minister) Theresa May told Parliament this morning: “What I can confirm is the man was British-born and that some years ago he was once investigated by MI5 in relation to concerns about violent extremism.”
So there you go. This is very common, that terrorists have had some contact with law enforcement but then are let go.
Another example of many: The Islamic mastermind of the April 2013 Boston Marathon bombings was not even a US citizen but came from a war-torn Muslim enclave in Russia and lived near Harvard University in Boston. FBI even had interviewed him about a return trip that he took to the Russian area, but let him go.
We see this over and over. The entire 9/11 plot could have been detected many times over if we had vigilant intelligence and police agencies. But we do not. These agencies, both in the US and in Europe, have been politicized and often taken over by leftists who are doing everything in their power to weaken America, and Europe too.
What is more frightening is that the London attacker killed and injured dozens of people with a very simple weapon – he drove into them with a car. No bomb. No gun. No terrorist training. No sophisticated plan of attack that required secrecy, rehearsal or preparation. This is the easiest thing in the world to do and these car attacks are becoming more common. Thus any Islamist who is willing to die or be captured and prosecuted now can pull off a serious attack.
It gets worse. A terrorist need not even have a driver’s license. He can steal a car, or conveniently “steal” a fellow Islamist’s car, i.e., a Muslim accomplice lets the terrorist use his car and says that it was stolen, if questioned.
This shows what we are up against, friends. And it is only conservative vigilance that can end this horror while it is only liberal laxity that is allowing it to happen.
When president Trump sought something so simple as a temporary ban on travelers from terrorist nations, the liberals fought him tooth and nail. When Muslims establish “no go” zones that are so dangerous that not even European police will go there, socialists yawn.
We know how this all works. It was under Obama and under the socialists in Europe that our national security was leaving us exposed to terrorism. Look at this amazing story from Infowars.com about the Pulse nightclub killer in Orlando, Florida of June 12, 2016:
Hillary Clinton’s State Dept. shut down an investigation into the mosque (that) Orlando killer Omar Mir Siddique Mateen attended because it “unfairly singled out Muslims.” The Fort Pierce (Fla.) Islamic Center, where Mateen worshipped several times a week, was under investigation by both the FBI and DHS as early as 2011 for ties to a worldwide Islamic movement known as Tablighi Jamaal which was linked to several terrorist organizations.
But the investigation was shut down under pressure from the Clinton-run State Dept. and DHS’s Civil Rights and Civil Liberties Office out of fear of offending Muslims, according to recently retired DHS agent Philip Haney.
Said Haney: “The FBI had opened cases twice on him, and yet they found no evidence to charge him; it means they didn’t go through the same basic, analytical process that I went through over a three- or four-hour period in which I was able to link the mosque to my previous cases.” In other words, the FBI had limited options at stopping Mateen because it was ordered to back off its investigation into his mosque.
Left-wing and socialist governments never want to crack down because they are in a strange-bedfellows alliance with radical Islam. They are more worried about offending Muslims than defending their own citizens against terrorism.
Look at this from the Daily Mail newspaper in Britain shortly after the December 2, 2015 terror attack in San Bernardino, California, also about Phil Haney:
A founding member of (US) Department of Homeland Security says a database he spent years creating could have helped stop the San Bernardino terror attack, before (the database) was destroyed by (US) federal officials. Phil Haney, who investigated terror groups in the wake of 9/11, claims he investigated two groups with links to terror killers Syed Farook and Tashfeen Malik as far back as 2012. If he had been allowed to continue his probe, (Haney) claims, it would have flagged the pair to the security services, and may have stopped them killing 14 people and injuring 21 in California last week. However, he says government civil rights officials destroyed the information he collected over fears he was unfairly profiling Muslims, investigated him, and then stripped him of his security clearance.
So we can see what happens to people who investigate terrorism and expose bad people. Just look at what happened to Phil Haney.
Nikitas3.com believes that all Muslim immigration into the US should be halted. There is no “right” to come to America. These Muslims can go to other Muslim nations. After all, they apparently are not interested in being Americans, but rather in bringing their Islamic culture here and forcing it on us. And now these car attacks are showing that any Muslim immigrant can become a terrorist.
The London attack came on the first anniversary of the Brussels, Belgium airport bombing and subway attack. Nikitas3.com wrote the following about that attack on March 22, 2016, in a column that still is pertinent today:
Euro Security Laxity Allows Terror
OK, folks, it is time to get real about terrorism. This Belgium attacks are just the latest action by evil people to disrupt our Western freedoms and prosperity.
Of course the liberals and Obama have been telling us for years that all Muslims are good people, that terrorists are not even Muslims, and that this is a minor problem.
No, no, and no. And until we say no, no, no, we will never address this crisis. These terrorists are the lowest people ever. They immigrate into our countries and target our innocent people. They are typical of what we expect from losers who have nothing to show for their lives.
uestion: Why don’t the terrorists, who are strong young males, dedicate themselves to building up their Muslim nations instead of trying to bring down the US and Europe?
Answer: Because weak people do not build; they destroy. The Muslim world is poor and backward, and that makes Muslims ashamed, particularly the young males. And since they cannot build anything, and since they are angry at the failure of their cultures, they therefore do the easy thing – they inflict damage on our advanced societies, and then celebrate.
The Belgians must also accept some of the blame for the Brussels attacks. The November 13, 2015 terror attacks in Paris were tracked to Brussels. If the Belgians cannot successfully pursue these links then they should not act like innocent victims. Nikitas3.com recommends that American travelers avoid Europe, and particularly Belgium and France.
America has had its share of terror attacks, and every single attack was preventable. Alarm bells about 9/11 were ringing for years throughout the late 1990s but the Clinton administration ignored every one. The Fort Hood murderer was well known to US Army officials as an Islamic fanatic, but nothing was done about him. The Boston Marathon bomber was not even a US citizen when had was interviewed by FBI after visiting terror enclaves in Russia. Yet he was allowed to stay in Boston when he should have been deported. And on and on.
This all started in 1979 when US Democrat president Jimmy Carter abandoned the pro-American Shah of Iran, and the radical Muslims took over that nation. They have been using Iran for decades as a base of operations for this War on the West. And now Obama has cut a nuclear deal with the same Iran. It is sick. Obama embraces Islam and hates the West and Christianity, as his deadbeat African father did.
Donald Trump has been ruthlessly maligned for suggesting that Muslim refugees be barred from the US since we cannot vet them, and since terrorists are infiltrating refugee populations to get into Europe, as they did for the Paris attack. It will be fascinating to see who these Brussels bombers are. Nikitas3.com is betting that they were well known to Belgian law enforcement officials.
German voters recently elected leaders who want to halt Muslim immigration into their nation. These voters were called “nazis” and “anti immigrant” of which they are neither. They are alert, smart people who want to protect themselves and their nation from Brussels-type attacks.
A writer named Josh Rogin wrote about the Brussels attack on Bloombergview.com. Here are excerpts from his article with a Nikitas3.com comment after each:
Rogin writes: Belgian Foreign Minister Didier Reynders spoke to the Brussels Forum on Sunday morning (March 20) and detailed the successful efforts to arrest Salah Abdeslam, believed to be one of the main plotters of the Paris attacks in November. He was captured in the Brussels neighborhood of Molenbeek. Abdeslam told Belgian authorities while in custody that “he was ready to restart something from Brussels,” Reynders said. Belgian intelligence determined that Abdeslam had built a new network of support in Brussels in the four months since the Paris attacks, expanding to include criminal networks that worked with the terrorists to share apartments and leverage connections to procure weapons. Nikitas3.com comment: OK, then it is time to get tough. This network is what we conservatives have been warning about for years. The liberals, like those in Europe and in the Democrat party in the US, have ignored us.
Rogin writes: The problem of foreign fighters leaving Europe for Syria and then returning to Europe to level attacks on civilians is not new. In May 2014, a French national returned from Syria to Europe, where he attacked the Jewish museum in Brussels. Intelligence sharing between the U.S., European countries, and countries in the region — especially Turkey — is key to combatting this threat, Reynders said. He added that cooperation was improving. Nikitas3.com comment: We don’t need cooperation. We need to keep terrorists out of our countries, both Europe and the US. We need to ban all immigration by Muslims and deport those who are not citizens. And start investigating suspicious people who are citizens. Period. End of sentence. Problem solved.
Rogin writes: General Gratien Maire, France’s Vice Chief of Defense, said the threat posed to Europe by terrorists connected to the Islamic State, such as Abdeslam, is more dangerous than in the past, because the terrorist organization has territory, weaponry and support that provides important advantages to returning foreign fighters. Nikitas3.com comment: Yes, and this all has been built up precisely as we conservatives have been warning about it. But then we conservatives have been called names. Ultimately we conservatives will win out since we are correct, as we always are.
Rogin writes: “They have really an unprecedented level of financial and military means available to them,” he said. Without stopping the Islamic State militarily and drying up their finances, there’s no way to counter their threat to Europe, he said. Nikitas3.com comment: Every time someone suggests ways to disrupt the terrorists the leftists and communists scream about civil rights and cultural sensitivity. This is a decoy tactic by communists who are closely allied with the terrorists.
Rogin writes: Regional officials at the conference emphasized that security precautions alone will never be totally effective in fighting the terror threat. They called on the West to do more to address the root causes of unrest, including the lack of economic opportunity and the narrative of the extremists in Muslim countries. Nikitas3.com comment: If there is a lack of economic opportunity for Muslims in Europe, then they should be deported back to their home countries. No problem. Bye-bye. Have a nice day. They obviously hate us. So they can go back home.
Rogin writes: “Today we are all targeted,” said Youssef Amrani, the head of mission for the Royal Cabinet of Morocco. “Today we feel we need a comprehensive approach towards fighting against terror.” Nikitas3.com comment: No, we needed a comprehensive approach 20 years ago but the Euros ignored it.
Rogin writes: (Republican Alabama) U.S. Senator Jeff Sessions, who spoke on the panel with European officials at the forum, pointed to the arrests in Brussels last week as an important change in the narrative about the international fight against the Islamic State. “It’s important that the long arm of the law is perceived as successful and I think this is a blow to the positive message to the ISIL message that they are going to win,” he said. Nikitas3.com comment: Except that they are winning right now.
