Breaking: Spanish Police Kill 4 Terrorists in Cambrils

BBC

Spanish police say they have killed four people in Cambrils to stop what they say was a second attempted attack after an earlier one in Barcelona.

Police warned people to stay off the streets, with shots reported in the port of Cambrils.

Thirteen people died and dozens were injured when a van ploughed into crowds in Barcelona’s Las Ramblas area on Thursday afternoon.

Spain’s Prime Minister Mariano Rajoy said it was a “jihadist attack”.

Another attacker was injured by the police gunfire in Cambrils, a police spokeswoman said.

Spanish media reported that the Cambrils attackers struck several people with a van early on Friday morning, leaving them injured, in what appeared to be an attempt to replicate the Barcelona attack.

Tourists and locals fled when a rented vehicle sped down Las Ramblas in the centre of the city, mowing down people.

Two people have been arrested, but police say neither was the driver, who fled on foot.

So-called Islamic State has said it was behind the van attack in Las Ramblas, saying in a brief statement carried by its Amaq news agency that it was carried out by “Islamic State soldiers”. The group gave no further evidence or details to back this claim.

The authorities also say an explosion on Wednesday evening at a house outside Barcelona that left one person dead was connected to the Las Ramblas attack.

Dozens of gas cylinders were found at the house in the town of Alcanar, about 100km (60 miles) south west of Barcelona, and Reuters quoted a police source as saying residents were preparing explosives.

In another incident, police shot dead a man who drove into officers at a checkpoint on the outskirts of Barcelona, but the authorities said there was no evidence that he was connected to the attack in Las Ramblas.

Police have released a photo of a man named as Driss Oubakir, whose documents were used to rent the van involved in the attack.

Local media say he is in his 20s, and was born in Morocco. However, latest reports suggest he has told police he was not involved, and that his documents were stolen.

The attack happened at the height of the season in one of Europe’s top tourist destinations.

Witnesses said the van deliberately targeted people, weaving from side to side as it drove down the boulevard.

Vehicles have been used to ram into crowds in a series of attacks across Europe since July last year.

Laughing my bleeping bleep off at the virtue signaling on Twitter:

Pathetic! These Tweeters are the same ones demonizing Trump as a Nazi for having the gall to show how to deal with Muslim sh*t.

OK, taking a dinner break now. Won’t be back for a few hours unless there’s big breaking news.

ISIS Takes Credit for Barcelona Terrorist Attack

NORMALCY BEFORE THE ATTACK.

There’s a simple answer to Muslim attacks in the West: Ban Muslims.

In the meantime, “thoughts and prayers” blah, blah, blah.

Hey guys, light a candle. That’ll show those mean old Muslims.

Excerpt from The Atlantic

Authorities in Barcelona are confirming 13 deaths and 50 injuries in what they are describing as a terrorist attack at Las Ramblas, the popular tourist attraction that was immortalized in George Orwell’s Homage to Catalonia.

Authorities said a van was driven onto a sidewalk and hit pedestrians. A suspect was arrested more than an hour after the incident, police said, describing the suspect as a “terrorist attacker.” Police in Barcelona said unconfirmed reports of a second attacker holed up in a bar were false.

ISIS claimed responsibility for the attack through Amaq, its mouthpiece—though the extent of the group’s direct involvement is not known. Although ISIS has steadily lost ground in Syria and Iraq, it maintains the ability to claim attacks in Europe, though it is unclear if the group is behind the operational planning of those attacks or whether it merely inspires its attackers through social media. El Pais, the Spanish newspaper, quoting anonymous officials identified the attacker as a Moroccan-born man named Driss Oukabir. Spanish authorities identified him as the man who had rented the van used in the attack.

Recent attacks in other European cities have been claimed by Islamists who claim they were inspired by ISIS. However, Barcelona has been the site of recent anti-tourism protests and anarchists had recently warned they would strike British tourists in Europe; Barcelona is a popular tourist destination.

Spain has had a long history with terrorism, but much of the violence was carried out by ETA, the Basque separatist group, which declared a truce in 2011. Catalonia, where Barcelona is located, is home to a powerful separatist sentiment, but that secessionist movement has not been violent. The most high-profile recent attack, however, was attributed to al-Qaeda in 2004 when near-simultaneous attacks on Madrid’s commuter train system killed 192 people and injured more than 2,000. Those attacks, which came three days before the country was set to vote in general elections, was the worst in Spanish history.

The Spanish government maintains a national terrorism alert level in response to terrorist attacks in Europe and elsewhere, as well as information held by its security agencies. Since 2015 the Spanish authorities have assessed the threat level as “high”, the second highest level (Level 4 out of 5). The current alert level is available on the Spanish Interior Ministry’s website (in Spanish).Although not a target of the scale of attack seen in 2004, Spain maintains its alert level at 4, the second-highest level. It has been at that level since 2015. Enhanced security measures were directed at crowded spaces, prominent buildings, and mosques, according to Euronews.

The El Pais report noted that since 2005 Spain has arrested more than 700 people in connection with terrorism convicted dozens, and imprisoned 120 people. It has also, the newspaper reported, foiled several attacks during the planning stage. But the manner of Thursday’s attack shows that despite the best preparations it’s difficult to stop a man in a truck from causing harm.

Twitter is alive tonight with a mix of the stupid and the sane:

Stefan Molyneaux Talks Race and IQ (Video)

Molyneaux claims that low IQ cultures cannot successfully mix with high IQ cultures. He claims that race doesn’t matter, pointing to East Asians and Jews who have successfully mixed in with American culture. He talks about the failures of blacks and Arabs in the West and the subsidies paid to them to have children.

I found that about 80 to 90 percent of Molyneaux’s monologue is accurate. Where he fails is in not calling out the changes in Euro culture that take place when Jews and Asians are present.

Trump Signs Russia Sanctions Bill “With Reservations”

America’s great (sarc) Congress is on a roll. Last week Congress made it a crime to refuse to do business with Israel. Now, the geniuses have given the world a bill that drives us closer to war.

The few votes against this bill show that the number of politicians in Washington not controlled by the New World Order (Rothschilds and their puppet Soros) is minuscule.

The Europeans, who depend on Russia for their energy, are reportedly angry over the sanctions bill. Europe’s response deserves a separate post later.

The glimmer of hope here is that Trump signed the sanctions bill while issuing a statement of his reservations, reproduced below.

Subject: Statement by President Donald J. Trump on Signing the “Countering America’s Adversaries Through Sanctions Act”

THE WHITE HOUSE

Office of the Press Secretary

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

August 2, 2017

*Statement by President Donald J. Trump on Signing the Countering Americas Adversaries Through Sanctions Act*

Today, I signed into law the Countering Americas Adversaries Through Sanctions Act, which enacts new sanctions on Iran, North Korea, and Russia. I favor tough measures to punish and deter bad behavior by the rogue regimes in Tehran and Pyongyang. I also support making clear that America will not tolerate interference in our democratic process, and that we will side with our allies and friends against Russian subversion and destabilization.

That is why, since taking office, I have enacted tough new sanctions on Iran and North Korea, and shored up existing sanctions on Russia.

Since this bill was first introduced, I have expressed my concerns to Congress about the many ways it improperly encroaches on Executive power, disadvantages American companies, and hurts the interests of our European allies.

My Administration has attempted to work with Congress to make this bill better. We have made progress and improved the language to give the Treasury Department greater flexibility in granting routine licenses to American businesses, people, and companies. The improved language also reflects feedback from our European allies who have been steadfast partners on Russia sanctions regarding the energy sanctions provided for in the legislation. The new language also ensures our agencies can delay sanctions on the intelligence and defense sectors, because those sanctions could negatively affect American companies and those of our allies.

Still, the bill remains seriously flawed particularly because it encroaches on the executive branchs authority to negotiate. Congress could not even negotiate a healthcare bill after seven years of talking. By limiting the Executives flexibility, this bill makes it harder for the United States to strike good deals for the American people, and will drive China, Russia, and North Korea much closer together. The Framers of our Constitution put foreign affairs in the hands of the President. This bill will prove the wisdom of that choice.

Yet despite its problems, I am signing this bill for the sake of national unity. It represents the will of the American people to see Russia take steps to improve relations with the United States. We hope there will be cooperation between our two countries on major global issues so that these sanctions will no longer be necessary.

Further, the bill sends a clear message to Iran and North Korea that the American people will not tolerate their dangerous and destabilizing behavior. America will continue to work closely with our friends and allies to check those countries malignant activities.

I built a truly great company worth many billions of dollars. That is a big part of the reason I was elected. As President, I can make far better deals with foreign countries than Congress.

ABC News is reporting that in a separate statement that Trump called the sanctions bill unconstitutional:

President Trump today signed a bill aimed at punishing Russia for its interference in the 2016 presidential election despite calling it “significantly flawed.”

In a signing statement released by the White House, Trump said the legislation “included a number of clearly unconstitutional provisions” in lawmakers’ “haste” to pass it.

“While I favor tough measures to punish and deter aggressive and destabilizing behavior by Iran, North Korea and Russia, this legislation is significantly flawed,” he said.

He went on, “My administration particularly expects the Congress to refrain from using this flawed bill to hinder our important work with European allies to resolve the conflict in Ukraine and from using it to hinder our efforts to address any unintended consequences it may have for American businesses, our friends or our allies.”

Unconstitutional? Next stop, the U.S. Supreme Court.

That said, signing bill makes Trump look weak (which he is because of the Republican establishment). He should have vetoed it on principle.

Bill Gates Calls on Europe to Shut Down Open Door Policy that Welcomes African Migrants

Has Bill Gates visited Chimpmania? Amren? Saboteur365?

Something has turned him into a race realist and maybe even a white nationalist.

Whatever has changed his mind about opening up Europe to Africans, he’s changed his mind. Let’s hope it stays changed.

Better yet, let’s hope he decides to do something better with his money than cure African diseases.

Europe’s generosity motivates more migrants to leave Africa – Bill Gates

Billionaire philanthropist Bill Gates has called on the European Union to reconsider its open-door policy of welcoming migrants as it motivates many more to leave Africa.

He said this week during an interview with a German media that European countries should take measures to make it more difficult for migrants to leave Africa through the current transit routes.

“On the one hand you want to demonstrate generosity and take in refugees, but the more generous you are, the more word gets around about this – which in turn motivates more people to leave Africa,” the Microsoft founder said.

Gates also advised Germany, which has an open door policy that it “cannot take in the huge, massive number of people who are wanting to make their way to Europe.”

He rather called for an increase in foreign aid while praising Germany for donating 0.7 percent of its GDP in that regard.

This stance of Bill Gates is a reverse of what he previously advocated for. Last year, he called on the United States to learn from Germany and Sweden and open its doors for migrants.

The 61-year-old has a foundation that invests a lot of money in Africa to fight poverty and diseases among others.

According to the International Organization for Migration (IOM), 3,314 people reached Spain by sea between 1 January and 30 April.

More than a half million migrants have poured into Italy since 2014, but most of them have paid far less to Libya-based smugglers (usually between $800 and $1,300) to board overcrowded and unseaworthy boats for a voyage that often ends in tragedy.

The European Commission announced 35 million euros ($40 million) in extra cash for Rome in response to Italian demands that its neighbours share more of the burden of handling thousands of migrants coming by boat every week.

It also set out a list of other measures for EU ministers to discuss on Thursday including beefing up Libya’s coastal rescue services to curb the number of people picked up close to shore by international charities.

The Biological Extinction of Europeans

AFRICAN PARASITES ARRIVE IN ITALY.

Africans are turning Europe into Africa, a turd world continent of stupid, violent, lazy, fecund monsters. The facts are presented here nicely, but the author’s policy conclusion is totally wrong.

Originally Published at Sputnik News.

Lew Rockwell

Some European countries, namely Italy, Germany, France and the UK, are facing the so-called “substitution of nations,” where the national ethnical majority is disappearing physically and biologically, and is being substituted by migrants, according to a recent report. Sputnik Italy discussed the issue with Daniele Scalea, the author of the report.

The recent report of the Italian-based Machiavelli Center of Political and Strategic Studies (Centro studi politici e strategici Machiavelli), “How immigration is changing Italian demographics” has revealed that a number of European countries are facing the “biological and physical extinction” of their national ethnicities.

Ethnic majorities in such countries as Italy, Germany, France and the UK, are gradually turning into ethnic minorities, while being “substituted” by incoming migrants.

Sputnik Italy discussed the issue with Daniele Scalea, an analyst at the center and the author of the report.

Migration is drastically changing the habitual course of life in Italy, he told Sputnik. The reason for the influx of African migrants into Europe is not wars or catastrophes, but an explosive demographic increase on the African continent, from 9 percent to 25 percent of the global population throughout the last century.

“Far-Right” Millennials Crowdfunded Ship to ‘Defend Europe’ from Migrants (Video)

One minute. A hopeful sign for Europe, if true.

Published on Jul 25, 2017

Bravo for Defend Europe instead of talking on social media, AND ACTING INSTEAD!!! This should be an example for everyone fighting this Zionist plot — The Coudenhove-Kalergi plan.

And, why does Al-Jazeera call them “far-right,” exactly? These African migrants are mostly not real refugees, but in fact, economic migrants — the data speaks for itself. (((Mainstream media))) tells the masses the opposite however.

In addition, NGOs (led by Soros and even Israel) aid them and quite literally pick them up off the coast of Libya delivering them right to the Europe. Is this right? No, not at all. So, people who want to stop this madness of NGO’s smuggling are far-right??

And, the argument that Western countries invaded some African states centuries ago, and they are now obliged to destroy their civilization by bringing here the whole Africa and the Middle East is completely stupid. No European is responsible for something that was done from the colonial period.
