French Soldiers Stop Another Machete Wielding, Allahu Akbar Shouting Attacker

French and German politicians are offering up prayers that the attacker is not a “refugee”, as are all the American Democrats screeching about Trump’s “Muslim ban”

(Fox News) A group of four French soldiers were attacked Friday inside a shopping mall beneath the Louvre Museum in Paris by a machete-wielding man shouting “Allahu akbar,” authorities said.

One of the soldiers suffered minor injuries and the attacker was gravely wounded. A military spokesman said the soldiers tried to fight off the assailant before opening fire.

The soldier who was slightly injured was not the soldier who opened fire, according to authorities.

The investigation is in its early stages, but the head of police told Reuters that– based on the attackers remarks– authorities believe the suspect wanted to carry out a terror attack at the famed museum.

Reuters is reporting that a second person was arrested, but nothing is known at this time. The museum is Paris’ second largest tourist attraction. He was carrying two backpacks, of which the police said had no bombs.

There is a little confusion on the weapon. Some say a knife, some say a machete. He did have two machete’s on him, that we do know. Regardless, he received the gift of 5 bullets to the stomach for his troubles.

And, you can bet that if he is a “refugee”, the authorities will slow walk that bit of news.

Meanwhile, in the People’s Republik Of California

Diners at a Cheesecake Factory restaurant in Southern California had their meals interrupted Thursday night when a man tossed a homemade explosive device into the restaurant, officials said.

“This evening an incendiary device exploded within our Pasadena restaurant,” The Cheescake Factory said in a statement. “Thankfully, none of our guests or staff was injured. Law enforcement is actively investigating the incident and we hope to reopen in Pasadena on Friday, as usual.” (snip)

Citing witnesses, police described the suspect as a “male of Hispanic or Middle Eastern descent, 6’0, thin build, with a heavy beard and wearing all black clothing and a black beanie.”

Huh. The bomb did little more than really put out a lot of smoke. On this one, we may never know the full details.

    Just a few of Jeffery’s oft cited dangerous white supremacist Trump supporters. Oh wait, sorry.

    France has been subjected to a sustained series of extremist attacks in the past 2 years. Here are some of the major assaults.

    July 14, 2016: Amid Bastille Day celebrations in the Riviera city of Nice, a large truck is driven into a festive crowd. Some 86 people from a wide variety of countries are killed. The driver is shot dead. Islamic State extremists claim responsibility for the attack. The state of emergency in France is extended and extra protection, including robust barriers to prevent similar attacks, is put in place at major sites in France.

    ___

    June 13, 2016: Two French police officers are murdered in their home in front of their 3-year-old son. Islamic State claims responsibility for the slaying, which was carried out by a jihadist with a prior terrorist conviction. He is killed by police on the scene.

    ___

    Nov. 13, 2015: Islamic State militants kill 130 people in France’s worst atrocity since World War II. A series of suicide bomb and shooting attacks are launched on crowded sites in central Paris, as well as the northern suburb of Saint-Denis. Most of those killed are in a crowded theater where hostages are taken.

    Islamic State extremists claim responsibility and say it was in retaliation for French participation in airstrikes on the militant group’s positions in Syria and Iraq. It leads to the declaration of a state of emergency in France. Police powers are expanded.

    ___

    Jan. 7, 2015: Two brothers kill 11 people inside the Paris building where the satirical magazine Charlie Hebdo is headquartered in what Islamic State extremists claim is retaliation for the publication of cartoons about the Prophet Muhammad. More are killed subsequently in attacks on a kosher market in eastern Paris and on police. There are 17 victims in all, including two police officers. The attackers are killed.

    What is it with French men shooting muzzies?
    Guess they all support Trump or something…

    AP reporting it as “Police shot somebody outside museum” – no mention of Aloha Snackbar, or the poor fellow being Amish.

    Stosh, I heard he was a renegade Presbyterian separatist from Tokyo with ties to the #trumpunderground.

    BTW Jeffery, I think you stated you are an investor so I do hope you’ve been riding Trumps coat tails in the market. I use an OTC LevelII platform and usually piggyback larger investors and since Nov 8th I’ve averaged $1600 per day except the last two weeks I’ve averaged $3800. I know it won’t last cause the leftists are doing their damndest to undermine the economy but while it lasts…..

    It’s amazing how the market reacts to having the adults in charge. I did see the proposed sculpture of Obama for his library though:

    A white nationalist shouting “white power” attacked an 83 yr old Korean woman in LA.

    Not all white nationalist trump supporters are violent terrorists.

      Uh, so what’s your point, little guy?

    • david7134 says:

      Jeff,
      I am trying to get something together. Can you explain differences between Islam and the KKK, except for the fact that the KKK treats women much better.

      • Jeffery says:

        dave,

        Asked and answered. In short, ISIL is a violent offshoot of Islam as the KKK is a violent offshoot of conservative Christianity.

        • david7134 says:

          No, Jeff, I am talking about the belief system of the average Muslim.Try taking your littlr brain to the Middle East. You might learn something, I did.

          • Jeffery says:

            You went to the Middle East and didn’t get beheaded?

            Every religion thinks their beliefs and gods are better than the other guys’ – and they’re all wrong.

            The average KKK member was a protestant white supremacist, that wanted to rid America of Catholics, Italians, Jews, Blacks, Mexicans etc – in fact all but Americans of northern European extraction. These good christian men lynched and burned out thousands of Americans.

            That profile seems different from the average Muslim.

        • Rev.Hoagie® says:

          That’s a lie Jeffery and you know it. The KKK is an offshoot of the democrat party and it’s slave legacy. Google it. It was started by democrats after the Civil War to “keep uppity negroes” in their place. It has nothing to do with “conservative Christianity” which actually fought and died to bring about the freeing of the slaves.

          You see Jeffery, Christians believe in Freedom and Life. That’s why we codified it in the Declaration and Constitution and that’s why we fought for it during the Civil War and that’s why we are against the wholesale genocide of minorities and women and others through abortion.

          Now ISIL stands for the Islamic State In Libya, just as ISIS is the Islamic State In Syria. Note “state”. A theocratic dictatorship. A government hiding behind a religious cult exacting dictatorial genocide on all non moslems.

            Hoagie,

            WRONG!

            The KKK is a violent offshoot of conservative Christianity.

            After the American Civil War of 1861–1865, former Confederates and members of the Democratic Party organized the Protestant-led[1] Ku Klux Klan (KKK) organization and began engaging in arson, beatings, destruction of property, lynching, murder, rape, tar-and-feathering, whipping and intimidation via such means as cross burning. They targeted African Americans, Jews, Catholics, and other social or ethnic minorities.
            Vehemently anti-Catholic, Klan members had an explicitly Protestant Christian terrorist ideology, basing their beliefs in part on a “religious foundation” in Protestant Christianity.[2]

            The goals of the KKK included, from an early time onward, an intent to “reestablish Protestant Christian values in America by any means possible”, and they believed that “Jesus was the first Klansman.”[3] From 1915 onward, Klansmen conducted cross-burnings not only to intimidate targets, but also to demonstrate their respect and reverence for Jesus Christ, and the ritual of lighting crosses was steeped in Christian symbolism, including prayer and hymn singing.[4] Within Christianity the Klan directed its hostilities against Catholics.

            The second group was founded in 1915, and flourished nationwide in the early and mid-1920s, particularly in urban areas of the Midwest and West. It was rooted in local Protestant communities and opposed Catholics and Jews, and stressed its opposition to the Catholic Church at a time of high immigration from mostly Catholic nations of southern and eastern Europe.

            So why did the KKK hate Roman Catholics and Jews if not out of religious bigotry? Hoagie, clearly the KKK was founded and continued as a christian (protestant) based organization until the last few decades.

            Why would anyone defend the KKK?

          • gitarcarver says:

            The KKK is a violent offshoot of conservative Christianity.

            What Jeffery is failing to tell you is that he is citing a Wikipedia article that is not on the KKK, but on “Christian Terrorism.” It is not surprising that an article seeking to blame Christianity would mention the KKK. However, there are notations on the article saying it is in dispute and that the article doesn’t prove its own summary.

            It is also interesting that Jeffery missed this from his own citation and concentrated on the KKK being a “Christian” group:

            After the American Civil War of 1861–1865, former Confederates and members of the Democratic Party ….

            Here’s another view of the history of the KKK:

            By the mid-1860s, the Republican Party’s alliance with blacks had caused a noticeable strain on the Democrats’ struggle for electoral significance in the post-Civil War era. This prompted the Democratic Party in 1866 to develop a new pseudo-secret political action group whose sole purpose was to help gain control of the electorate. The new group was known simply by their initials, KKK (Ku Klux Klan).

            This political relationship was nationally solidified shortly thereafter during the 1868 Democratic National Convention when former Civil War General Nathan Bedford Forrest was honored as the KKK’s first Grand Wizard. But don’t bother checking the Democratic National Committee’s website for proof. For many years, even up through the 2012 Presidential Election, the DNC had omitted all related history from 1848 to 1900 from their timeline — half a century worth!

            No one is denying that the KKK is a vile group. What is being denied by Democrats and people of the left is the actual history of the KKK and how it was founded by members of the Democratic Party in response to blacks flocking to the party that had fought a war that ended up in freeing black slaves.

            Some people can’t handle the truth or history.

    Hoagie,

    The Dow is increasing at the same rate it was from 2012 to 2015. It’s been pretty flat the month and half.

    The last jobs report of the Obama era was just released and is outstanding except wages were flat. Wages will likely drop as the trump economy weakens. Missouri is just getting ready to pass so-called “right to work” legislation which will harm workers.

    Conservative economics will harm the economy as it always does. Rich guys like you and I will do OK though – the laws are on our side.

    Don’t get me wrong, Democratic elite economic policy is not much better. Dems (and Repubs) supported trade deals that put American workers in direct competition with poorly paid foreign workers. Fed elites fight the hint of inflation by throwing millions of middle class workers out of work (Reagan did this famously in the early 80s – generating the highest unemployment rate in modern history). Republicans abhor fiscal stimulus even when needed. Every tax policy favors the wealthy over workers. Intellectual property laws (especially tied to global “trade” policies) reward the wealthy at the expense of consumers. And on and on.

    trumpy wants to deregulate and cut taxes for the wealthy in hopes once again to see a mythological trickle down effect. The rich will get richer, the poor will get poorer.

    Besides praying for Arnold Schwarzeneggar he wants to be able to funnel political donations tax free through tax exempt organizations, such as churches. If trumpy gets his way, Daddy BigBucks can give his favorite mosque one million tax-free who can turn around and give it to BigBucks’ favored candidate.

    The Dow is increasing at the same rate it was from 2012 to 2015. It’s been pretty flat the month and half.

    Really? The DOW closed at $18,259 on November 8, 2016. Today it closed at $20,071. That’s an increase of almost 10% in about 50 days of trading allowing for weekends and holidays. The DOW was at $13,000 Nov. 2012 so between 8/12 and 8/16 it gained 5,000 points, about 1,000 points PER YEAR. It gained 2,000 in the last 50 days.

    Are you still sticking with your story that ” It’s been pretty flat the month and half.”?

  9. Rev.Hoagie® says:

    You should know I am not rich, Jeffery. I have some rich friends and some very rich relatives but I’m firmly middle class. You know, I pay taxes. I have $2900 per month of Social Security which doesn’t even cover my RE taxes and homeowners per month. My wife still nets about $300k at her salons but she has a good offer for them and I do hope she sells by June. I’ve managed to put together a nice portfolio over 40 years of work and combined with my wife’s assets we are okay.

    I was just trying to give you a head’s up on the market. If you trade short time like I do it’s a great place right now. But when I’ve netted over 144k since November and you tell me things are “pretty flat”. That makes me think that if the truth conflicts with your wants or your narrative then the truth is cast aside I favor of the other two. I doesn’t bode well for reliability and truthfulness if every word needs to be fact checked because politics trumps truth.

  10. Jeffery says:

    19911 on Dec 13… 20069 today. Pretty flat. Month and half…

    12488 on Nov 16 2012… 18232 on May 15 2015… that’s a 50% increase

    https://www.bing.com/search?q=djia&qs=n&form=QBRE&sp=-1&pq=djia&sc=8-1&sk=&cvid=6841B75A14934E8DBE0E352C808F713B

    It was about 8000 when President Obama took office and was nearly 20000 when he left office!!

    Do you think trumpy will increase the djia 2.5 fold by the time he is impeached leaves office?

    Dow Jones 50,000???

  11. Rev.Hoagie® says:

    Okay Jeffery. As I pointed out the DOW closed at $18,259 on November 8, 2016. Today it closed at $20,071. In the last two months the market has gone up about 2,000 points and so far has stayed at that level. You can go through the last 20 tears cherry picking highs and lows to prove your “politics” but the real picture is timeXmovement=profit. And I made over $144k since November. How did you do? BTW, that’s Puts and Calls. I’m not always upside.

    You do realize it does not travel in a straight line and it is never, ever flat?

    You are so busy trying to politicize the market that while I make money you bitch. That’s kinda silly. But have it your way. So if you want I’ll thank Obama and collect my money just the same.

  12. Rev.Hoagie® says:

    Here is your 10 year chart, Jeffery. You do notice the sharp uptick since November, don’t you? Well, that’s the wave I’m riding and that’s a 2,000 point jump since November. Flat my ass.

    https://tse1.mm.bing.net/th?&id=OIP.TpBj4FzVtSvxBW9Y3rzjhQEsDN&w=299&h=205&c=0&pid=1.9&rs=0&p=0&r=0

  13. Jeffery says:

    Good for you. You started talking about the market and your investing prowess, not me.

    I was lucky and didn’t lose my butt during W’s market collapse, and did well with President Obama’s solid market recovery. I don’t check often enough to know how I’ve done in the time of trumpy.

  14. Jeffery says:

    Hoagie,

    You can’t read? I said the last month and a half. Why has it been flat the last month and a half?

    If you attribute the run up before the past slow 1.5 months to trumpy’s election, do you attribute the strong market from 2008 until now to President Obama? Why has it slowed the past 1.5 months?

  15. Jeffery says:

    gc,

    The argument wasn’t whether the KKK was founded by conservative Democrats – it was. The debate was whether it was a christian organization – which it also was. Fortunately for us all, the KKK as a formal organization has been reduced to a historical totem.

    That is not to say that all modern christians are violent racists – they are not. Just as modern Democrats are not conservatives and all Muslims are killers.
