Updat (2 pm ET): In a harrowing account of today’s Times Square terrorist attack, the New York Post interviewed several witnesses who shared their accounts of the immediate aftermath of the attack, which triggered a small stampede out of the narrow subway tunnel where Akayed Ullah detonated his homemade pipe bombs.
‘I heard a kaboom. It was shaky,’ said Jamar Moore, 39, who was near a turnstile when he felt the explosion.
‘There was a little rumble. Everyone just hit the stairs and started running. People were losing their pocketbooks. Once we heard that pop, everybody was out.’
In the mad scramble to flee after the would-be suicide bomber’s explosive device erupted underground, people at the station were falling over each other, trampling on others and losing their shoes, Moore recalled.
‘People started getting trampled. I see about three to four people falling,’ he said.
Sarah Benelli, 35, was on an A train that had pulled into 42nd Street/Port Authority when the bomb detonated, shaking the whole train and causing frightened commuters to jump on board to try to get away.
‘I had headphones on, but I felt this rattle in my chest. I pulled the headphones out, and it sounded just like thunder. It reverberated for a couple seconds, and it was really loud,’ said the Inwood resident.
‘As I heard the rumbling, I heard people on the platform running on the train. There were a couple expletives; people were obviously scared. A few people ducked down in the train, and people were shouting to get away from the doors so the doors could close. They wanted to get out of there.’
As we noted earlier, Ullah told police that his attack was an act of vengeance against the US for bombing his home country of Bangledash.

CHIEF PATHOLOGIST RESIGNS TO EXPOSE SHERIFF FOR FALSIFYING AUTOPSY REPORTS TO PROTECT KILLER COPS

San Joaquin, California – The resignation of a chief autopsy doctor has raised questions as he is now claiming that he chose to resign because he no longer wanted to stand by and watch the sheriff override his findings from death investigations, in order to protect law enforcement.
Former Chief Forensic Pathologist, Dr. Bennet Omalu, claimed that when he was conducting autopsies on individuals who were killed by police officers, Sheriff-Coroner Steve Moore attempted to influence his medical findings, according to a report from KQED News.
Based on a series of documents that include memos from Omalu, the report claims the doctor said some of the most alarming death investigations Moore tried to override were those of people who ‘died in the custody of law enforcement officers who used Tasers or other types of force.’
‘The sheriff was using his political office as the coroner to protect police officers whenever someone died while in custody or during arrest. I had thought that this was initially an anomaly, but now, especially beginning in 2016, it has become routine practice.’
The resignations of both Dr. Omalu and his colleague, Dr. Susan Parson, come months after they began documenting Moore’s behavior in March. Their complaints against the sheriff include accusations that he routinely changed the labels on ‘homicides’ to ‘accidents,’ and he would delay the written reports pathologists needed from sheriff’s investigators in order to complete their cases for months.

Israel says that all of Jerusalem is its capital. Palestinians want East Jerusalem as the capital of a future independent state.

ISIS-Inspired Muslim Suspect In Custody After NYC Pipe Bomb Terrorist Attack: Live Feed

Update 3: The New York Post reports, an ISIS-inspired Bangladeshi national set off an homemade explosive device at the Port Authority Bus Terminal subway station Monday morning, law enforcement sources said.
The suspected bomber – a 27-year-old who lived in Brooklyn – had wires attached to him and was armed with a five-inch metal pipe bomb and battery pack as he walked through the Manhattan transit hub, sources said.
Police took the man into custody.
Former NYPD Commissioner Bill Bratton told MSNBC’s ‘Morning Joe’ that the man was inspired by ISIS and originally from Bangladesh.

Welcome To The Hell Hole That Is Brussels

Authored by Drieu Godefridi via The Gatestone Institute,
Last month alone in Brussels, there were three separate outbreaks of rioting and looting on a major scale. If you penetrate the thick cloud of professional indignation to scrutinize the reality of the “capital of Europe”, what you see in many respects is actually a hell hole, one where socialism, Islamism, riots and looting are the new normal. When then-candidate Donald Trump noted in January 2016 that, thanks to mass immigration, Brussels was turning into a hell hole, Belgian and European politicians presented a united front at the (media) barricades: How dare he say such a thing? Brussels, capital of the European Union, the very quintessence of the post-modern world, the avant-garde of the coming new “global civilization,” a hell hole? Of course assimilating newcomers is not always easy, and there may be friction from time to time. But never mind, they said: Trump is a buffoon, and anyway, he has zero chance of getting elected. Such were the thoughts of those avid readers of The New York Times International Edition and regular watchers of CNN International.
However, Donald Trump, in his unmistakable, brash style, was quite simply right: Brussels is rapidly descending into chaos and anarchy. Exactly two months after that dramatic Trumpism, Brussels was eviscerated by a horrific Islamic terror attack that left 32 people dead. And that was only the tip of the monstrous iceberg that has built up over three decades of mass immigration and socialist madness.
Last month alone in Brussels, there were three separate outbreaks of rioting and looting on a major scale.
First, there was the qualification of the Moroccan team to the soccer World Cup: between 300 and 500 “youths” of foreign origin took to the streets of Brussels to “celebrate” the event in their own way, looting dozens of shops in the historical center of Brussels, wreaking havoc in the deserted avenues of the “capital of civilization” and, during their riot, injuring 22 police officers.

POLICE IN TWO STATES USE HOSPITALS TO TAKE MOTORISTS’ BLOOD WITHOUT A WARRANT

Police state America has found a disturbing new way to forcibly take motorists blood without a warrant.
Law enforcement is using private hospitals to do their dirty work.
Earlier this year, I reported that police in Oregon were forcing hospitals to take motorists’ blood without a warrant.
I thought it would end there and the courts would call the practice illegal, I could not have been more wrong.
Oregon Appeals court sides with law enforcement…
As part of defendant’s medical treatment, hospital staff had drawn a sample of his blood and tested it, ascertaining that his BAC was .333 percent. After defendant refused to consent to a blood draw, Trooper Dunlap did not seek a warrant for a blood draw. Nor did he ask hospital staff for the results of the blood test. However, pursuant to their duty under ORS 676.260, hospital staff verbally disclosed to Dunlap that defendant’s BAC was .333 percent and Dunlap included that information in his police report.

A Two-State Solution For Europe?

A poll conducted this summer found that 29% of French Muslims found Sharia to be more important to them than French laws. It also found that 67% of Muslims want their children to study Arabic, and 56% think it should be taught in public schools. A 2016 UK poll showed that 43% of British Muslims “believed that parts of the Islamic legal system should replace British law while only 22 per cent opposed the idea”. Another poll from 2016 found that 23% of all Muslims supported the introduction of sharia law in some areas of Britain, 39% agreed that “wives should always obey their husbands,” and 52% of all British Muslims believe that homosexuality should be illegal. French President Emmanuel Macron blamed France, not Islam, for the increased radicalization, which he said should lead France to “question itself.” According to Macron, then, the parallel Islamic societies of France, have nothing to do with Islam. They are the fault of the French republic. Did the French republic impose sharia and the subjugation of women in the suburbs, described by one female survivor as “hell”? Was the French republic behind the recent distribution of leaflets stipulating “if you meet a Jew, kill him”? A French intellectual, Christian Moliner, recently suggested that France should establish a Muslim state-within-a-state that adheres to sharia law, inside the borders of France, to avoid a civil war. Warning against refusing to deal with the problems of Islamism in Europe because of political correctness, he stated:
“Out of the fear of appearing Islamophobic, to satisfy this bustling fringe of Muslims, governments are ready to accept the spread of radical practices throughout the country…. [some] territories are outside the control of the Republic. The police can come only in force and for limited durations… We can never convert the 30% of Muslims who demand the introduction of sharia law to the merits of our democracy and secularism. We are now allowing segregation to take place that does not say its name.”

STRANGE: LAS VEGAS POLICE HAVE PULLED THEIR HOMICIDE DIVISION OFF OF THE STEPHEN PADDOCK MASSACRE INVESTIGATION

LAS VEGAS (INTELLIHUB) – Investigative journalist and former police officer Doug Poppa revealed to Fox News host Tucker Carlson Tuesday night that he was told from sources both inside and outside the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department that the ‘Homicide Division’ was pulled off the investigation into Stephen Paddock’s death early on for reasons unknown which is very odd, to say the least, as a suicide has to be investigated.
‘Now, homicide detectives normally investigate homicides and suicides because you don’t know whether a suicide is actually a homicide until it’s investigated,’ the former police officer explained.
‘They were pulled off the case and the case was given to an entirely different bureau commander.’

Two Islamist Militants Named In Terrorist Plot To Assassinate UK Prime Minister

20-year-old Naa'imur Zakariyah Rahman has been remanded in custody accused of a plot to kill Prime Minister Theresa May in a bomb and knife attack on Downing Street
— Sky News Newsdesk (@SkyNewsBreak) December 6, 2017

The UK’s domestic security service (the local FBI) needed some good news after an independent report published yesterday concluded that MI5 could have prevented the terrorist attack which killed 22 people at an Ariana Grande concert in Manchester in May.
The report by David Anderson QC, who previously reviewed UK terrorist legislation for the government, reviewed the internal reports by MI5 and the police regarding the Manchester terror attack and three others since March 2017, which led to the deaths of 36 people. Anderson stopped short of blaming MI5, but criticised the organisation for ‘wrongly’ interpreting intelligence on the bomber, Salman Abedi. He also criticised the way MI5 works with the UK police force and the way they share intelligence.
However, as saving grace, just a few hours after the report was published, it emerged that MI5 and the police successfully foiled a plot to assassinate UK Prime Minister, Theresa May. Two men were delivered to Westminster Magistrates Court in central London this morning. 20-year-old Naa’imur Zakariyah Rahman was accused of orchestrating the plot to kill the Prime Minister in a bomb and knife attack on Downing Street.

Homeowner Shoots At Would-Be-Robber During Home Invasion

A homeowner in Columbia, Missouri shot at a would-be-robber during a home invasion. Levi Strodman said he always carries his pistol with him while in his home, and it tipped the tables in his favor.
Police officers were called to Strodman’s home around 10 pm on Sunday. Strodman said his wife had heard a knock at the door. When he went to check it out, he grabbed his pistol, which he said he always carries in the home. ‘It’s kind of taboo but I encourage it, obviously now,’ he said.
Strodman noticed something odd almost immediately, although he assumed the neighbor was just having some fun. When he got to the door, the view through the peephole was obstructed. That’s when he cracked open the door and an armed man attempted to push his way into Strodman’s home. ‘He rushed it and I put force back on him and was able to stop him immediately,’ said Strodman. ‘He was still fighting to make his way through and was gaining ground. Then he presented a pistol.’

Creeping Fascism, Part 5: ‘the world’s most sophisticated, high-tech systems to keep watch over citizens’

Maybe this series should be renamed ‘Galloping Fascism’:
China’s Tech Giants Have a Second Job: Helping Beijing Spy on Its People
(Wall Street Journal) – HANGZHOU, China – Alibaba Group’s sprawling campus has collegial workspaces, laid-back coffee bars and, on the landscaped grounds, a police outpost.
Employees use the office to report suspected crimes to the police, according to people familiar with the operation. Police also use it to request data from Alibaba for their own investigations, these people said, tapping into the trove of information the tech giant collects through its e-commerce and financial-payment networks.
In one case, the police wanted to find out who had posted content related to terrorism, said a former Alibaba employee. ‘They came to me and asked me for the user ID and information,’ he recalled. He turned it over.
The Chinese government is building one of the world’s most sophisticated, high-tech systems to keep watch over its citizens, including surveillance cameras, facial-recognition technology and vast computers systems that comb through terabytes of data. Central to its efforts are the country’s biggest technology companies, which are openly acting as the government’s eyes and ears in cyberspace.
Companies including Alibaba Group Holding Ltd. , Tencent HoldingsLtd. and Baidu Inc., are required to help China’s government hunt down criminal suspects and silence political dissent. Their technology is also being used to create cities wired for surveillance.

75-YEAR-OLD WOMAN ARRESTED FOR MURDERING SMALL CHILD IN STRANGE CULT

Police arrested a 75-year-old former cult leader, who allegedly tortured children for years, for the murder of a child in her religious boarding school.
Police arrested Anna Elizabeth Young, aka ‘Mother Anna,’ in Marietta, Ga., last week after multiple witnesses who once lived at Young’s Florida boarding school, The House of Prayer for All People, came forward with stories of abuse, torture, and even murder, according to The Washington Post. Police charged Young with pre-meditated first-degree murder of a child in the case of Emon Harper, a young boy who died at age 2 or 3 from torture and starvation in the 1980s.
‘We think there are many, many more. We can document other states and other missing children that we believe are tied into this,’ Alachua County Sheriff’s Office spokesman Art Forgey told The Gainesville Sun. ‘They ran a religious institution – exorcising demons and other things like that. We have documentation involving her clear back the ’60s. We did extensive forensic examination on the property this summer. We are still analyzing the evidence that we gathered.’

What to Expect From BBC Panorama and Guardian’s Whitewash of UK Gov’t Funding Terrorists in Syria

21st Century Wire says…
The BBC will be carrying out a controlled journalistic ‘explosion’ on their Panorama programme, airing tonight in the UK. Their report, dramatically titled, ‘Jihadis You Pay For’ is about to expose UK Foreign and Commonwealth Office (FCO) for the funding of extremist and terrorist groups in Syria via their ‘Free Syrian Police’ project set-up in ‘rebel-held’ areas of Syria since 2014.
To referee this virtual clash of the titans, The Guardian has been drafted-in to do the honours.
‘The report, Jihadis You Pay For, will claim that Foreign Office money paid to the FSP reached people with links to the extremist group al-Nusra Front.’ ~ The Guardian
Mike Raddie of BSNEWS commented:
‘Is the Guardian’s Daniel Boffey attempting to whitewash the massive scandals of FCO and BBC funding and working with extremist groups in Syria? Why did he not ask Vanessa Beeley or Robert Stuart to explain how these UK institutions are working alongside al Qaeda / ISIS linked groups inside Syria?
Is it any wonder the Guardian has closed reader feedback on the story, less than 8 hours after it wasposted? ‘Comment is Free’ so long as you don’t mention unsayable truths such as BBC’s Panorama and Boris Johnson’s Foreign and Commonwealth Office are both working with and financing al Qaeda in direct contravention of UK anti-terror legislation.’

HOW DID AMERICA GET UNACCOUNTABLE POLICE WITH ABSOLUTE POWER OVER US CITIZENS?

We’ve all been there before.
You’re driving along and you see a pair of flashing blue lights in your rearview mirror. Whether or not you’ve done anything wrong, you get a sinking feeling in your stomach.
You’ve read enough news stories, seen enough headlines, and lived in the American police state long enough to be anxious about any encounter with a cop that takes place on the side of the road.
For better or worse, from the moment you’re pulled over, you’re at the mercy of law enforcement officers who have almost absolute discretion to decide who is a threat, what constitutes resistance, and how harshly they can deal with the citizens they were appointed to ‘serve and protect.’
This is what I call ‘blank check policing,’ in which the police get to call all of the shots.
So if you’re nervous about traffic stops, you have every reason to be.
Trying to predict the outcome of any encounter with the police is a bit like playing Russian roulette: most of the time you will emerge relatively unscathed, although decidedly poorer and less secure about your rights, but there’s always the chance that an encounter will turn deadly.
For instance, it was just a year ago, in the early morning hours of Dec. 1, 2016, when Gregory Tucker, a young African-American man, was pulled over by Louisiana police for a broken taillight.

‘We Have A District Attorney Who Consistently REFUSES To Prosecute Powerful Sexual Predators’ New York Prosecutors Accused Of Stalling Harvey Weinstein Rape Investigation

The Manhattan district attorney’s office is ‘dragging its feet’ in its investigation into rape allegations against disgraced liberal Hollywood figure Harvey Weinstein, with the lawyer for the accuser noting that the cities district attorney already has a history of refusing to file charges against powerful sexual predators.
Actress Paz de la Huerta first accused Weinstein of sexually assaulting her on two different occasions in her New York City apartment in a widely read Vanity Fair piecewhich led to an investigation being launched by police who originally publicly stated that there was indeed a case against the alleged predator.
Fast forwarding a month later and no charges have been filed with the stalling getting so out of hand that the actresses lawyer, Carrie Goldberg, decided to release a statement in which she pressured the DA Cyrus Vance Jr. while also noting his past refusal to charge Weinstein and the possibility that it was connected to the fact that his lawyer had contributed to Vance’s campaign.

Campus Newspaper Editorial: “Your [White] DNA Is An Abomination”

A new opinion piece in a Texas State University student newspaper tells white students, ‘Your DNA is an Abomination.’

‘When I think of all the white people I have ever encountered – whether they’ve been professors, peers, lovers, friend, police officers, et cetera – there is perhaps only a dozen I would consider ‘decent,” student author Rudy Martinez writes in the University Star.
Without much biological explanation, Martinez informs white readers:
