Two men suspected of planning an Islamist suicide bomb plot to assassinate the Prime Minister have arrived at court. Naa´imur Zakariyah Rahman, 20, and Mohammed Aqib Imran, 21, were driven into Westminster Magistrates´ Court in a security van this morning after being charged with planning terror attacks. Investigators suspect the pair wanted to detonate a bomb disguised as a bag in Whitehall before using a suicide vest, pepper spray and knife to attempt to kill Theresa May. Rahman, from north London, is accused of planning to bomb Downing Street´s security gates and then attack the Prime Minister in the ensuing

It´s not the first time an attack has occurred by terrorists on Downing Street. There was also a horrible Irish terrorist attack on a hotel housing Thatcher and most (if not all) of the cabinet and other officials. And another one took place when a mortar hit close to No. 10. I recall the attack was made from a stolen white van.
I guess Trump was right when he tried to warn May and the Brits about the dangers of radical Islamists when he posted links to those videos last week. Will they admit he was right. No, they will continue to commit cultural suicide and call Trump a racist.
#2, you´re absolutely right. It´s hasn´t been one single week since the prime minister, the foreign secretary, virtually every other government official of all political parties -- and every newpaper columnist in Britain -- laced into President Trump over his posting of the Britain First videos. Trump´s deranged! Trump is a Nazi!! Trump is going to start World War III!!
Trump was proven right again -- within one week. Just as all the British elites were busy condemning Trump, two young Muslim thugs were busy hatching a plot to murder the prime minister at Number 10! Will any of these people admit that radical Islam indeed poses a serious danger to the West? That terrorists are being trained inside Britain to wreak havoc on British society that they hate so much? That we´re in a war for our liberty?
It´s so much easier to trash Donald Trump than to do the hard work of ferreting out terrorists in their midst, breaking up terror cells, and deporting the thugs back to their third-world hellholes.
At least during WWII the enemy was flying overhead and the Nazis were´t goose stepping on London streets because Brits knew the danger. This is sheer PC stupidity letting murdering fanatical killers who avow to kill westerners and rape women. Trump is right I would rather live being called a racist than to be dead because I was a PC open border globalist embracing a murderous cult under the guise of religion.
I agree with #2. Clearly President Trump was right again when he advised Prime Minister May, just last week, to tend to the radical Islamists who have been allowed to silently invade the UK for many years.
The UK politicians have been paralyzed over the issue of radical Islamists in the UK because of the huge amount of business that the UK historically been doing all over the Islamic world. The last thing that those UK politicians want to happen is the British being characterized as being in conflict with, or being considered to be enemies of the Islamic world.
Because of that factor the UK politicians have allowed large masses of foreign origin Muslims to immigrate to the UK despite knowing that a percentage of those foreign Muslims are potentially dangerous radical Islamists and will perpetrate violent terrorist attacks in the UK. Up to now the UK politicians have been willing to risk an amount of deadly terrorist attacks in the UK hoping that UK intelligence and police activities can detect and arrest the perpetrators before they can carry out their deadly attacks. So when the intelligence and police miss a pending Islamist terror attack people die. When it looks like the future victims of radical Islamist terror attacks may be members of the Royal Family or the Prime Minister you would hope that would change the attitudes of the leading UK politicians.
ENERGY prices across Europe have soared after an explosion ripped through one of the continent’s biggest supply hubs. Pipeline deliveries across large parts of the continent have been thrown into chaos as a result of the deadly blast at the Baumgaerten site in eastern Austria. In Britain, Europe´s biggest gas market, the price of gas for immediate delivery soared by 35 per cent to 92p per therm, its highest level since 2013. The Italian wholesale day-ahead price surged nearly doubled to £41.44 per megawatt-hour, its highest ever recorded level. And Italy has declared a state of emergency as a result of the fuel
President Donald Trump said Monday a bomb blast in Manhattan highlights the need for an immigration overhaul - as the man arrested was revealed to be part of a large Bangladeshi family sponsored by his aunt or uncle. Trump said that the U.S. ´must fix its lax immigration system, which allows far too many dangerous, inadequately vetted people´ into the country. The Republican president pointed to his controversial travel ban as an example of the kind of policy that needs to be put in place. And he called on Congress to end ´chain migration,´ in which family members are permitted to join relatives
There are reports of a possible terror attack in New York City, after an explosion was felt Monday morning in a Subway station near Times Square. Commuters said they felt a blast in the Subway tunnels underneath the Port Authority Bus Terminal around 6:30am. The bus terminal is a major transit hub for people commuting into the city by bus from New Jersey, and is located just a block from Times Square. Police reportedly have one man in custody, who had an explosive device on him. The FDNY said they are investigating the possibility of it being a terror attack.
Washington — Nikki R. Haley, the American ambassador to the United Nations, said on Sunday that women who have accused President Trump of sexual misconduct “should be heard,” a break from the administration’s longstanding assertion that the allegations are false and that voters rightly dismissed them when they elected Mr. Trump. Ms. Haley, a former governor and one of the highest-ranking women in Mr. Trump’s administration, refocused attention on the allegations against the president by insisting that his accusers should be treated no differently than the scores of women who have come forward in recent weeks with

King David’s Psalm number two opens with the rhetorical question – “Why are the nations in an uproar?” Well now we know. The European nations (nearly all of them) that conspired with Germany to wipe out the Jews barely 75 years ago, cannot accept the fact that Israel Lives. That’s one. Two, that Israel lives with Jerusalem as its capital, as endorsed by the United States through President Trump – it’s driving them crazy. Delirium has set in from France, Germany (that’s nerve), Britain, Sweden and throughout the European Union. They can’t forgive Trump for being so heroic and they will never forget
SADIQ Khan has been slammed after hiring a group headed by a staunch Remainer to write reports about the potential impacts of leaving the EU. The London Mayor is believed to have splurged £42,270 on the reports about how Brexit could impact the capital´s economy. They will be produced by Cambridge Econometrics, which has already predicted economic doom when Britain leaves the EU. The group´s director, Richard Murphy, campaigned for a Remain vote last year and claimed Brexit would spark an recession. In a furious attack on the Mayor, Ukip London Assembly member Peter Whittle accused Mr Khan of failing
During a rally to promote Alabama Republican Senate candidate Roy Moore, Donald Trump continued to attack the ´rigged´ and ´sick´ government institutions that he claims try to thwart his administration. At the Friday night event to promote the alleged sexual assaulter, he said: ´This is a rigged system. This is a sick system from the inside. ´And, you know, there is no country like our country but we have a lot of sickness in some of our institutions.´ He did not name FBI special counsel Robert Mueller by name in the speech, but has done battle with the bureau as it continues
A SYNAGOGUE was attacked by around 20 masked men while hosting a youth party in Gothenburg, Sweden, local media have reported. Police arrived at the scene, where Jewish students had taken refuge in the basement. A police spokesman said: "There are several molotov cocktails that have been thrown against the synagogue. "It´s about bottles and gasoline." A fire broke out between vehicles in the car park, fire fighter Kristoffer Wahter told local news. No injuries were caused and the building did not catch fire, Police inspector Peter Nordengard said. Initial local media reports suggest the group was around 20 men wearing masks carried out the
Theresa May today crowned her church´s Christmas tree with a shoe in fitting tribute to her love of expensive footwear. The Prime Minister beamed as she placed the silver heel while husband Philip watched on in their Maidenhead church. Mrs May described shoes as ´the love of her life´ after famously chiding her colleagues for their reputation as ´the nasty party´ in a pair of leopard-print kitten heels in 2002. The tree she crowned was one of many in St Luke´s church which held its annual tree festival today. There was not a hint of tiredness about Mrs May who
Hundreds of drinkers descended on London dressed as Father Christmas for SantaCon as the annual American pub crawl hit the UK once more. Describing itself as ´non-profit, non-political, non-religious and non-sensical´, the parade that originated in San Francisco invites people to ´join the naughty list´ and down drinks in the capital´s bars and open spaces. But today´s festive frivolities weren´t restricted to indoor venues, as Santas were spotted pouring themselves drinks outside - with one unloading a large bottle of gin into a plastic bottle. One of St Nick´s elves was pictured grappling with another little helper in the dirt while another reveller
President Donald Trump is committed to ongoing efforts to reach an Israeli-Palestinian peace accord, the U.S. ambassador to the UN said Friday amid a backlash over his decision to recognize Jerusalem as Israel´s capital. "Let me again assure you, the president and this administration remain committed to the peace process," Ambassador Nikki Haley said at an emergency meeting of the Security Council that was convened over Trump´s decision Wednesday. She added that Trump, in his reversal of two decades of American foreign policy, was simply recognizing reality, since the Israeli government and parliament are
The NFL protests have been lucrative for social justice charities — they´ll receive a whopping $89 million in "settlement" money, redirected from veterans and breast cancer charity funds — but they´re also becoming a boon for cash-strapped football fans. It turns out, if you can still stomach a professional football game, you can now get tickets for about the same price as a couple of Starbucks lattes. According to Vivid Seats, an NFL ticket reselling site, seat prices at most NFL stadiums have bottomed out, leaving fans able to snag a lower level seat for a Buffalo Bills game for
The family of the alleged ISIS-inspired Port Authority bomber said they were “heartbroken” by the attack on Monday and blasted law enforcement agencies for what they claimed were heavy-handed tactics by investigators. “We are heartbroken by the violence that was targeted at our city today and by the allegations being made against a member of our family,” said the statement read by Albert Fox Cahn, the Legal Director for the NY Chapter Council for Islamic Relations. “But we’re also outraged by the behavior of the law enforcement officials who held children as small as 4 years old out in the
In 1990, when liberal journalists still had some sense of obligation to the truth, Michael Kelly wrote the following for GQ: As [Carla] Gaviglio enters the room, the six-foot-two, 225-plus-pound [Sen. Ted] Kennedy grabs the five-foot-three, 103-pound waitress and throws her on the table. She lands on her back, scattering crystal, plates and cutlery and the lit candles. Several glasses and a crystal candlestick are broken. Kennedy then picks her up from the table and throws her on [Sen. Chris] Dodd, who is sprawled in a chair. (snip) Here is what McCaskill had to say about Kennedy´s behavior upon his death
On Monday, Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand (D-NY) told CNN’s Christiane Amanpour President Donald Trump should resign over the sexual misconduct allegations against him. Gillibrand said, “President Trump should resign. These allegations are credible, they are numerous. I’ve heard these women’s testimony, and many of them are heartbreaking. And President Trump should resign his position.” She added, “Whether he will ever hold himself accountable is something you really can’t hold your breath for. And so, Congress should have hearings. They should do their investigation. They should have appropriate investigations of his behavior and hold him accountable.”
A supposed "rising star" at the State Department has resigned in anger over President Trump´s and Secretary of State Rex Tillerson´s policies. Elizabeth Shackelford gave her resignation letter to the left-leaning Foreign Policy magazine, which was, of course, all too happy to publish it. Shackelford´s letter says she believes the new administration has abandoned human rights as a priority, and shows disdain for the State Department´s diplomatic work. "I have deep respect for the career Foreign and Civil Service staff who, despite the stinging disrespect this Administration has shown our profession, continue the struggle to keep our foreign policy on the positive
A heartbreaking video of a young boy pleading to be left alone by bullies has gone viral and celebrities are offering him their support.Keaton Jones, of Knoxville, Tennessee, asked his mother, Kimberly Jones, a question that so many people would like the answer too. ´Just out of curiosity, why do they bully? What´s the point of it? Why do you find joy in taking innocent people and finding a way to be mean to them,´ Keaton asked his mother through tears. ´It´s not okay,´ he said. (Video/Photos) His mother then asked: ´What did they say to you?´ ´They make fun
The rules of interaction between women and men in the workplace have been changed with a suddenness that inevitably produces unforeseen negative consequences, no matter how positive and necessary the switch might be. (snip) With the stakes so high, given the presumption of female veracity and male culpability anytime an objection is raised, men are, frankly, terrified. Get used to it, ladies. That is the other side of the coin of the new normal. The old norms that men (often cluelessly) incorporated into their behavior now have been discarded, but we have no clear understanding of what should replace them. By
A suspect is in custody following an explosion at one of New York City’s busiest transit hubs in Times Square during Monday morning’s rush hour, police said. The bombing suspect was identified as Akayed Ullah, 27, according to New York Police Commissioner James O’Neill. Ullah had an explosive device strapped to his body, O’Neill said. What do we know about the suspect? Law enforcement sources told Fox News Ullah lives in Brooklyn. New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio said the explosion was an “attempted terrorist attack.” Sources told the Associated Press that Ullah may be of Bangladeshi descent. What else do we know about the
Several women who have accused US President Donald Trump of sexual assault and harassment were expected Monday to call on Congress to open an investigation. A press conference by the women will be hosted by Brave New Films, a media company that recently produced a clip detailing sexual harassment or assault claims by 16 women against Trump. A press release from Brave New Films on Sunday said the women would relate their accounts of Trump’s alleged “groping, fondling, forcibly kissing, humiliating, and harassing women.” The White House has dismissed all of the accusations as lies. During Trump’s presidential campaign, more than
President Trump attacked Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand (D-N.Y.) in a sexually suggestive tweet Tuesday morning that implied Gillibrand would do just about anything for money, prompting a swift and immediate backlash. “Lightweight Senator Kirsten Gillibrand, a total flunky for Charles E. Schumer and someone who would come to my office ´begging´ for campaign contributions not so long ago (and would do anything for them), is now in the ring fighting against Trump,” the president wrote. “Very disloyal to Bill & Crooked-USED!”
One of the more obvious things about the Trump economy is how much better it is than the Obama economy. Yet incredibly, President Obama, as if jealously looking on at this night-and-day difference, is trying to claim credit for it. From the Washington Times: Former President Barack Obama is taking credit for the robust economic growth that is taking place under President Trump. At a conference of mayors in Chicago, Mr. Obama congratulated himself Tuesday for strong employment numbers in the U.S. this year, saying his climate-change policies have contributed to growth.
The plague of empty seats which has befallen the National Football League reached biblical proportions this week, as teams continued to find it hard to fill stadiums. Naturally, a large number of players also continued their anti-American protests during the playing of the national anthem as Week 14 rolled into stadiums everywhere. And as a result, ticket prices are plummeting. The league is having such a tough time finding fans to fill seats that some tickets are selling for the unheard of price of three dollars a seat, Breitbart Sports reported on Sunday.
