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.

Deep State Treason:  Former State Dept. Official Under Trump Tells China To Quit Negotiating Until Trump Is Removed In 2020

Deep state traitors no longer hide their deep hatred for the American people —

Mrs. Susan Thornton, the former acting assistant secretary of state in the Trump administration, told her Beijing audience to stop negotiating until President Trump is removed from office in 2020.

Until July 2018, she was Acting Assistant Secretary for East Asian and Pacific Affairs at the Department of State and led East Asia policy making amid crises with North Korea, escalating trade tensions with China, and a fast-changing international environment.

The Conservative Treehouse and The South China Morning News reported:

A former official in the Trump administration has said that China can weather the storm brought by the trade war with the United States but might have to “keep steady, keep their heads down and wait” for change in the White House.

Susan Thornton, former acting assistant secretary of state to US President Donald Trump, told a gathering in Shanghai on Wednesday that she hoped a trade deal between the US and China could be concluded by next month.

But the reality was that it would “take a while” for China and the US to talk about cooperation again, Thornton, who in 20 years rose to become the US State Department’s chief negotiator for East Asia and Pacific affairs, told the South China Morning Post.

“I want to be optimistic,” said Thornton, whose 27-year career in Washington ended in July. “I tell all our foreign counterparts they should keep steady, keep their heads down and wait. [They should] try to not let anything change dramatically.”

“If this sceptical attitude towards talking diplomacy continues in this administration, you might have to wait till another administration,” Thornton said at an event held by National Committee of US-China relations and Shanghai’s American Chamber.
