Stolen truck slams into cars in Germany, several injured police- YouTube
The suspect, a male Syrian national in his 30s, dragged the driver of a white Mercedes truck from his vehicle before accelerating into other cars at a traffic light.
Witnesses told local media that the truck accelerated rapidly before the crash that left several cars smashed and debris scattered across the pavement.
Although the suspect’s motives were initially unclear, authorities are now treating the crime as an act of terrorism, public broadcaster ZDF reported, citing security officials.
Witnesses also said the terrorist shouted “Allah” several times and spoke Arabic.
It’s a miracle that the man didn’t choose to plough into pedestrians, which would have undoubtedly caused more fatalities.
The fact that the assailant was a Syrian migrant will lead to more criticism for Angela Merkel over her policy of opening Germany’s borders in 2015 to around 2 million “refugees,” many of them from Syria.
The deadlier 2016 truck attack at a Christmas market in Berlin, which killed 12 people and injured 56 others, was carried out by a failed Tunisian asylum seeker.
Last week, a knifeman who had converted to Islam and been radicalized by ISIS propaganda killed 4 people in a terrorist attack on a police station in Paris, France.
Obama Lies Again: – Ignores That The Year After Signing The Stimulus More Than (4) Million Jobs Were Lost
Former President Obama, the only President in US history who had his FBI and other Intel agencies spy on the opposition party candidate, claims that he created the great economy that Americans are enjoying today. The only thing Obama created was debt and massive job losses with his horrible economic recovery.
Yesterday the former President tweeted an effort to take credit for President Trump’s successful economy:
Eleven years ago today, near the bottom of the worst recession in generations, I signed the Recovery Act, paving the way for more than a decade of economic growth and the longest streak of job creation in American history.
President Obama’s policies were a disgrace and a failure. He doubled the national debt in spite of zero interest rates from the Fed. His recovery was the worst in US history.
Also, Obama’s assertion is just plain false. The ‘Stimulus’ was passed in February 2009 right after Obama took over the Presidency. He promised to not pass any bills for at least a week to allow for the bills to be read by the people but lied as soon as he was sworn in. The Stimulus was hundreds and hundreds of pages of government handouts to Democrat districts and it was close to $1 million. This was not what America needed and it led to the Tea Party.
Far-left Wikipedia has this to say about the Stimulus:
Note that in his infinite wisdom, NYT economist Paul Krugman is credited with arguing that “the stimulus was far smaller than the economic crisis warranted”. (He also said the markets would crash and burn if President Trump was elected President.)
The data shows that the 12 months after Obama’s stimulus, the US lost 4.3 million jobs:
In Obama’s first three years he netted a loss of 1.5 million jobs compared to President Trump who has added more than 6.7 million jobs.
When it comes to the economy, the billionaire schools the community organizer every time.
