Head of International Police Agency: Arming Citizens May Be the Best Way to Stop Terrorists
Belgium has raised its terror alert level from 3 to 4 for police forces (maintaining alert level 2 for everyone else) as it unleashes 10 raids in Verviers (near the capital) on returning Syrian fighters:
*BELGIAN SUSPECTED TERRORISTS OPENED FIRE AT POLICE DURING RAID
*BELGIAN POLICE KILLS TWO TERRORISTS, NO WOUNDED AMONG POLICE
Anti-terrorist operations continue (despite reassurances that this not linked to the Paris attacks) as prosecutors say the suspected terrorists planned large, imminent attacks.
Governments from Around the World ADMIT They Do It
The situation in France is going from bad to worse. First there is the two Paris terror-attack suspects hostage crisis in an industrial estate north of Paris. Secondly, an apparently linked (according to police) hostage crisis is also under way in an East Paris kosher grocery, where a suspect in the Thursday fatal shooting of a police officer in Paris' Monrouge area, identified as Amedi Coulibaly, 32, has now issued a warning that he will kill hostages if police storm the terror-attack brothers. What is even more curious is that Coulibaly met with French President Sarkozy in 2009, hoping to find a job.
The Queen has sent "sincere condolences" to French President Hollande over the Paris attack (as have Obama, Merkel, and Cameron) as he puts Paris on high terrorist alert as the manhunt for the reported 3 killers continues. Front National's Marine Le Pen has been more vociferous in her remarks, wanting to "defend against war waged on France," and calling for "rejection of fundamental islam." The remarks and actions of the day are even more chilling in light of Chrlie Hebdo's editor's comments in 2012 that "our job is not to defend freedom of speech but without it we're dead. We can't live in a country without freedom of speech. I prefer to die than to live like a rat."
The economic "recovery" has been harsh, especially for the former hedge fund manager of Paron Capital Management, James Crombie and his family of 4 including. So, as a result Crombie decided to continue living the good life: he did so by squatting in someone else's Maryland house listed in May 2014 for over $1 million.
"By an almost 2-1 margin, or 59-to-31 percent, those interviewed support the CIA’s brutal methods, with the vast majority of supporters saying they produced valuable intelligence." Does this confirm the total degeneration of American culture into a collective of chicken-hawk, unthinking, statist war-mongering automatons? Alternatively, does it merely reflect the effectiveness of corporate-government propaganda? Is it a combination of both?
Media World In Turmoil: Bloomberg Editor In Chief Out, Replaced With The Economist's John MicklethwaitSubmitted by Tyler Durden on 12/09/2014 10:59 -0500
While hardly as attention grabbing as the events in Congress today, moments ago the newsworld was shaken following news that the Editor in Chief of Bloomberg news, Matt Winkler, would step down and continue as editor-in-chief emeritus, working directly with Mike Bloomberg, to be replaced with the Editor in Chief of The Economist, John Micklethwait.
With African Americans. However, even they are unhappy with Obama's Ferguson performance.
As America holds its breath for tonight's (expected) grand jury verdict over the shooting of 18-year-old Michael Brown - by police officer Darren Wilson on August 9th - Missouri officials have said they have reached an understanding with protest leaders, as NY Times reports, on the conduct of demonstrations expected after the decision whether to indict Wilson or not comes down. Despite this 'understanding' it is clear that law-enforcement is 'prepared'...
Just a week after Dr. Craig Spencer was declared 'Ebola-free', The Daily Mail reports a woman, who had arrived from Guinea 18 days ago (and was on the NYC Ebola monitoring list), dropped dead in a Brooklyn hair salon this afternoon. FDNY sent their Special Operations and Hazmat units but she was declared dead at the scene. Witnesses said she was bleeding from the "face, nose, mouth, everything."
"As a drearily soulless, principle-free, power-hungry veteran of DC’s game of thrones, she’s about as banal of an American politician as it gets."
Phoenix Air has released a statement explaining why the now infamous non-HazMat-wearing 'clipboard man' seen in close proximity to Dallas Ebola patient Amber Vinson (while the rest of the members of staff are fully protected) was unprotected... and it will blow your mind.
For a virus that is not airborne, the authorities sure take a lot of precautions to make sure it doesn't enter the common airspace. Well, maybe not when infected nurses fly commercial, but certainly when doctors transport Ebola patients from point A to point B on the world as can be seen in the following documentary of the Ebola transport jet that is used for such purposes. Pay particular attention to the description of the Hepa air filtration system which is "similar to what the Centers for Disease Control and other research places use in their Level Four laboratories. So that air from the aircraft cabin will enter these filters and go through a filtration process that goes down to even smaller than viruses." Because Ebola is not airborne?
