Feds: International Plot to Shoot Up Concerts, Attack NYC Thwarted – 3 arrested

Image result for isis terrorizing americaFederal authorities have charged three men in an international conspiracy to engage in ISIS-inspired terrorist attacks on New York City in the summer of 2016.

The men, a Canadian citizen, a U.S. citizen living in Pakistan, and a citizen of the Philippines, planned to shoot concert goers, detonate a bomb in New York City’s Time Square, and attack the city’s subway system.

The parallels to the Paris nightclub attack at the Bataclan, which included grenade attacks on nearby venues, is clear. The Philippines citizen is a twist that envokes the Las Vegas mass murder as the shooter’s girlfriend was in the Philippines during the shooting and received $100,000 from the shooter just prior to the massacre.

Canadian citizen Abdulrahman El Bahnasawy said that he “wanted to shoot up concerts because they kill a lot of people. We just walk in with guns in our hands, that’s how the Paris guys did it.”

“We seriously need a car bomb at Time’s Square,” another suspect told an undercover FBI agent. “Look at these crowds of people.”

While the attacks were planned for last year, the charges were unsealed by federal authorities Friday.

Bahnasawy bought bomb-making supplies for the attack and was arrested in May of 2016 upon entering the United States in preparation for the attacks. He has now pleaded guilty and is awaiting sentencing.

The U.S. citizen, Talha Haroon, was living in Pakistan when he was arrested by local authorities and is still awaiting extradition.

“I wanna kill . . . them in thousands” Haroon allegedly told the undercover. “We have to make a ocean out of their blood .. leave no one standing.”

Russel Salic, a Philippines native, wired money to Haroon and Bahnasawy in support of the attack. Money moving back-and-forth between the U.S. and the Philippines is becoming more prevalent in U.S. terrorist activities. Salic was arrested by Philippine authorities and is also awaiting extradition.

Both Haroon and Basawai declared their allegiance to ISIS in electronic communications.

Gohmert: Dems Will Drag Out Impeachment — Try To Get ‘Best Socialist’ Nominated For President

During an appearance on Huntsville, AL radio’s WVNN on Thursday, Rep. Louie Gohmert (R-TX) offered his best assessment of what House Democrats were trying to accomplish with their impeachment efforts.

Gohmert told WVNN’s “The Jeff Poor Show” impeachment could tie up the Democratic Party’s presidential campaign efforts but predicted Democrats would use the occasion to nominate “the best socialist” they can.

“They would lose in the Senate,” Gohmert said on impeachment. “And besides that, the entire time it was on trial in the Senate, the Democrats who are running for president wouldn’t be allowed to campaign. That’s in the Constitution. They wouldn’t be able to campaign. I just can’t imagine them wanting to do that because if they send it to the Senate, they have now perfectly set up the scenario of 1996, where they will reassure Donald Trump is reelected as president. They don’t want to do that. They’re probably going to drag this thing out as long as they possibly can … through Iowa, through primaries — try to get the best socialist they can to be nominated.”

“Then just end up and say, ‘Now we’re close enough to the general election. We’ve thrown mud at the president through the House,’” he continued. “What they’re really doing — they’re using taxpayer funds to campaign against Trump. That’s all this is — a campaign fund that taxpayers are paying for in order to try to throw mud at the president. I’ll be surprised if they have that vote, but I can’t imagine they want to set up this president for reelection by having a trial in the Senate where they lose.”
