Anti-Trump Puerto Rican Mayor Supported Terrorist Oscar Lopez Rivera

 

Mayor Cruz supported one of the most dangerous domestic terrorists around. In the end, he was sentenced to 55 years but whose sentence was commuted by Obama. A Marxist. But of course. No doubt Cruz will run for Governor so she can turn this hell hole into the next Marxist Utopia:

Carmen Yulin Cruz, the anti-Trump Mayor of San Juan who has used the national spotlight of Hurricane Maria to attack Trump, has a long history of supporting convicted terrorist Oscar Lopez Rivera, a Puerto Rican radical who ran a paramilitary group that waged war against the United States.

Since May 29th, 2012, Cruz has used her official Twitter account 49 times to lend support to Lopez, a man arrested by the United States government in May of 1981 for seditious conspiracy against the United States and conspiracy to transport explosives to destroy government property, among other charges. Later that year, Lopez was sentenced to 55 years in jail for his various crimes.

Indeed, Cruz and Lopez appear to be not just friends, but close friends.

Several months after President Obama commuted Rivera’s sentence just before he left office, a decision so bizarre even CNN’s Jake Tapper didn’t understand it, Cruz tweeted a selfie of herself with a man who closely resembles Rivera, with the caption reading “Welcome #OscarLopez”

However, this is hardly surprising, given her long history of using her political clout to advocate on the convicted terrorist’s behalf. On September 20th, 2012, Cruz tweeted a picture of herself posing with street art of Rivera, writing “Free Oscar Lopez Rivera.”

Most Americans may not have heard of Lopez, or the organization he helped lead, the Fuerzas Armadas de Liberación Nacional (FALN), a radical Marxist Puerto Rican independence group. With the focus of post-9/11 terrorism falling almost exclusively on Islamist radicals, the violent nationalists of yesteryear—Puerto Rican, Cuban, Croatian and Jewish—have faded into obscurity. But during the FALN’s explosive heyday under Lopez’s leadership, the group was anything but obscure. In fact, from 1974, when the group announced itself with its first bombings, to 1983, when arrests finally destroyed its membership base, the FALN was the most organized, active, well-trained and deadly domestic terror group based in the United States.

The FALN was responsible for over 130 bombings during this period, including the January 1975 explosion in Manhattan’s historic Fraunces Tavern, which killed four and wounded 63. In October of that year, it set off, all within the span of an hour, 10 bombs in three cities, causing nearly a million dollars in damage. In August 1977, the FALN set off a series of bombs in Manhattan, forcing 100,000 workers to evacuate their offices; one person was killed, and six were injured. In 1979, the group even threatened to blow up the Indian Point nuclear energy facility located north of New York City. It later sent a communiqué warning the U.S. to “remember … that you have never experienced war on your vitals and that you have many nuclear reactors.” In 1980, FALN members stormed the Carter-Mondale election headquarters in Chicago, and the George H.W. Bush campaign headquarters in New York, holding employees there hostage at gunpoint. In 1981, they plotted to kidnap President Reagan’s son Ron. Plainly, the group was deadly serious about its objectives—a free, independent and socialist Puerto Rico—and zealous in its pursuit of them. More at Politico

Scalise: fractured bones, injured internal organs, severe bleeding, condition critical

Prayers for Rep Scalise. Of course, the Alt-Left’s rhetoric has nothing to do with this.

Rep. Scalise is reported by MedStar Washington to have fractured bones, internal organs injured and severe bleeding. Scalise remains in critical condition, all thanks to a left wing extremist who hunted down Republicans.

From America’s Watchotower:

Here are 15 examples of celebrities wishing or threatening violence against Donald Trump, and if the left-wing on Twitter can be used as an example they are only upset it was not worse than it was. But the left are the tolerant ones…

Bernie Saunders?

“Today in the White house we have perhaps the worst and most dangerous President in the history of our country.  Bernie Saunders.

Congressman Steve Scalise sustained a single rifle shot to the left hip. The bullet travelled across his pelvis, fracturing bones, injuring internal organs, and causing severe bleeding. He was transported in shock to MedStar Washington Hospital Center, a Level I Trauma Center. He underwent immediate surgery, and an additional procedure to stop bleeding. He has received multiple units of blood transfusion. His condition is critical, and he will require additional operations. We will provide periodic updates.

Are the free societies of the world doomed to fail?

 

The man MI5 didn’t think was dangerous: Killer used gym to radicalize youngsters, worked out with a terror suspect on the FBI watch list and was reported to the security services again LAST SUMMER. So goes the headline.
Today a guest post by Mustang:

An interesting recent article in the UK’s Daily Mail headlined as “MI-5 and Yard: We had him and let him go: a shocking admission that 2-years before London Bridge jihadi maniac went on rampage.”  What is missing is the logical follow-on subtitle: negligent officials arrested and charged in the deaths of innocents.

To my way of thinking, this is a large part of the problem: free societies never seem able to hold their elected officials and bureaucrats accountable for their gross incompetence.  I am wondering … why not?  Do they, or do they not, work for “the people?”

According to the report, “Khuram Butt, 27, was flagged up because of his extremist views and his case was examined by Scotland Yard and the security services.  A call was later made to the anti-terror hotline, warning of Butt’s increasingly extremist behavior, but officials downgraded the investigation because they did not suspect the married father of two was planning an attack.”

As it turns out, the dismissal was incompetent in the extreme, or if you prefer, criminally wanton due to thoughtless political correctness.  Similar instances have occurred in the United States, a few of which were honor killings of female children by their own father, some of whom have never been brought to justice.

What does it take to switch on the light —to finally move against what to me is an obvious conspiracy by too many extremists who seek to murder us.

We can do better than this, yet we sit back and allow un-named officials to draw their fat salaries and hefty pensions even after making horrendously consequential decisions.  It makes the admonition “see something—say something” laughable.  Perhaps what has happened to us is exactly what we deserve —for our complacency.

Prime Minister May’s terrorism solution? Restrict the Internet

It would be one thing if control of the internet was focused on radical Islam converting others to mayhem and violence. But if history tells us anything, control of speech ends up as  the first step and the hallmark of moving toward a totalitarian State. So if you have concern that Prime Minister May might be a bad choice in the upcoming British election, check out my earlier post Could the British Labor Party Corbyn Win the British Election?  Here we go with the latest.

British Prime Minister Theresa May called for a bold measure after her nation suffered yet another deadly terror attack in the heart of London.

No, May did not call for reforming the United Kingdom’s immigration policies or shutting down known extremist mosques. She instead called for restricting the internet.

“We need to work with allied democratic governments to reach international agreements to regulate cyberspace to prevent the spread of extremist and terrorism planning,” May stated in her Sunday speech. She also declared that the “pluralistic values of Britain” must be established as “superior” to any other value set.

The UK already has a lengthy record for targeting so-called “Islamophobia” spread on the Internet. Back in 2013, the British government arrested several citizens in the middle of the night over their “racist” comments following a Muslim extremist decapitating British soldier Lee Rigby in broad daylight.

In February 2016, U.K. police arrested a Scottish man who was upset over the large number of refugees who were set to settle in his small town. A month later, authorities detained a London man for his apparently “Islamophobic” tweet in response to the Brussels terror attack.

And this is just the United Kingdom being discussed here. Pretty much every single Western European country is obsessed with silencing “hate speech” online and Germany has gone as far as to threaten to hit Facebook with a massive $53 million fine if the platform doesn’t comply with its demands to censor “offensive” views.

Every Nine days, a terrorist attack is attempted in Europe in 2017

Time for Great Britain and the world to wake up. The U.S. can no longer be the only country concerned about terrorism and to the Mayor of London, no we will never accept that this is to be accepted.

From Breitbart:  Europe, the United Kingdom, and Russia have witnessed terror attacks or attempted attacks every nine days in 2017 on average, analysis of security incidents has revealed.

Since January, around 45 people have been killed by mostly Islamic terrorists, while hundreds have been injured. The only known incident not linked to jihadism in 2017 was the attack on the Borussia Dortmund soccer team by a Russian-German national attempting to profit from short-selling stock in the company.

 Attacks and attempted attacks have taken place in Austria, France, the United Kingdom, Belgium, Italy, Russia, Sweden, Norway, and Germany.

Security services in Britain — population 65 million — are known to be tracking 3,500 potential terror suspects or persons posing a threat. Meanwhile Belgium, with its population of just 12 million, is tracking around 18,000 potential jihadists. List at Breitbart

The enemy is at the gate, they lay siege to our walls, yet no one answers the call to arms!! Where are the Knights, why are they not suited up for the great battle? Are they asleep? Who will slay this beast if not the Templars? The angels are sounding the trumpets, are the sounds of them muffled? This enemy is familiar, we have fought them before, in histories past, come brethren, take up your cross, and fight for God, and the Saints, the beast has reared his ugly head once again!!

 What is the matter with Twitter? Great Britain’s police? The following were removed from Great Britain. Where is the outrage? The UK gave us Freedom of Speech. Time to get a move on.

San Francisco suspends ties to FBI Joint Terrorism Task Force

The San Francisco police department is suspending ties with the FBI’s Joint Terrorism Task Force.

The announcement comes amid growing concerns of spying on Muslim Americans by the new Trump Administration.

San Francisco may become a model as other cities more closely examine relationships with the feds. The concern is that local police departments could be used for surveillance that is broad and possibly unconstitutional.

“Donald Trump made very clear that he was going to be targeting Muslims and he wants mass Muslim surveillance and part of the work done with the JTTF could feed into this horrible Muslim registry, they’re talking about,” said retired attorney John Crew, who fights for civil liberty issues.

Bomb Maker Bill Ayers celebrates Obama’s clemency for bomb maker Oscar Lopez Rivera

Everyone is talking about the release of Manning by Obama, but this little number who remains committed to terrorism poses future risk to all of us. He is still an avowed terrorist who will remain here in the USA, not be set free in some third world hell hole. I include a clip of Bill Ayers just for the record.

Bill Ayers, the Weather Underground bombmaker, celebrated Tuesday after his old Chicago friend Barack Obama commuted the federal prison sentence of Oscar López Rivera, another bombmaking terrorist.

Bill Clinton offered to grant clemency to Rivera along with 15 other FALN members in 1999, despite the group’s use of violence. Clinton said that he felt that the terrorists’ sentences were too harsh given their crimes. But Rivera refused to comply with one of Clinton’s conditions, which was to disavow the use of terrorism. Rivera was sentenced to 55 years in prison in 1981 on charges of seditious conspiracy, robbery, and transportation of firearms and explosives charges.

He was a member of the Marxist Puerto Rican nationalist group Fuerzas Armadas de Liberación Nacional, or FALN. The group carried out around 130 bombings across the U.S. from the mid-1970s to early-1980s, killing six people and injuring dozens more.

FALN’s most notorious attack was carried out in 1975 at the Francous Tavern in Manhattan. Four people were killed in the bombing.
