The President reacted on Twitter:

Daniel Horowitz at Conservative Review reacted to news of the suspected terrorist’s origins:

Update 2:  In the first news conference about the attack, Mayor de Blasio, Governor Cuomu, and members law enforcement verified that it was a terrorist attack. They raised the death count to eight and praised the police officer who shot the terrorist.

NYPD is currently considering this to be a “lone wolf” attack and does not believe there will be additional terrorist attacks in the city.

The suspect is a 29-year-old male. He was shot by police in the abdomen. He had a paintball gun and a pellet gun.

Two adults and two children riding a bus that was struck by the terrorist’s truck were injured.

Update 1: Reports are coming in that the suspect shouted “Allahu Akbar” after emerging from the truck.

At least eight people are dead after a terrorist mowed down cyclists in Lower Manhattan around 3:10 pm EST. The suspect is in custody. The incident is being investigated as a terrorist attack.

Multiple people have been injured. Reports are coming in that the terrorist first used a rented Home Depot box truck to try to run over cyclists. Witnesses say he intentionally merged into the bike lane to mow them down.

After crashing the truck, he emerged with two guns which turned out to be a paintball gun and a pellet gun. He was shot by police before being taken into custody.

“What happened was there was a car crash… he came out of one of the cars. He had two guns. He was running around Chambers and somebody started to chase him,” said a 14-year-old Stuyvesant student. “I heard four to six gunshots – everybody starts running.”

We will update this post as it develops.

Sayfullo Saipov: 5 Fast Facts You Need to Know

https://heavy.com/news/2017/10/sayfullo-saipov-manhattan-truck-ramming-suspect-terror/Sayfullo Saipov was identified in news reports as the driver accused of ramming a Home Depot rental truck into people on a bike path in lower Manhattan, killing at least eight and injuring multiple more, in a frightening “act of terror” that unfolded almost in the shadow of the World Trade Center memorial.

New York police and other authorities declined to release the 29-year-old suspect’s name in an early evening press conference after the Halloween afternoon attack, but the mayor publicly and quickly called the car ramming an “act of terror.” ABC News and other media outlets named the suspect as Sayfullo Saipov of Tampa, Florida. According to CBS News, the terror suspect is “Sayfullo Habibullaevic Saipov, apparently from Uzbekistan.” He is an Uzbekh national who was not born in the United States, according to NBC.

8 Dead After Truck Driver Plows Through Bike Path, Into School Bus in Apparent Act of Terror: Sources – NBC New York

    Before political opportunists try to use this criminal attack as a pretext for their agenda, it’s not too early to remind readers that New York City is a gun-control, bike-friendly, anti-combustion engine, sanctuary city. And that except for a tiny sliver north of Times Square, Hillary carried all of Manhattan and often by margins of four or five-to-one.

John Conyers’ denial of wrongdoing is exactly what’s wrong with abusive men in power

John Conyers denial of wrongdoing is exactly whats wrong with abusive men in power

The longest-sitting member of Congress, Democrat John Conyers of Michigan, is “expressly and vehemently” denying any wrongdoing following Buzzfeed’s blockbuster report that he paid off a former employee by three extra months of pay after firing her for what she claims was opposition to his sexual advances.

She Said A Powerful Congressman Harassed Her. Here’s Why You Didn’t Hear Her Story.

https://www.buzzfeed.com/paulmcleod/she-complained-that-a-powerful-congressman-harassed-her?utm_term=.kwaeyWOB5#.yakGXl5EOConyers confirmed he made the settlement in a statement Tuesday afternoon, hours after this story was published, but said that he “vehemently denied” the claims of sexual harassment at the time and continues to do so.

And the documents also reveal the secret mechanism by which Congress has kept an unknown number of sexual harassment allegations secret: a grinding, closely held process that left the alleged victim feeling, she told BuzzFeed News, that she had no option other than to stay quiet and accept a settlement offered to her.

Unlike accusations that keep popping up on a seemingly daily basis, this one has a very clear paper trail. That the Congressman is denying “wrongdoing” exemplifies a bigger problem than just sexual misconduct. Men like Conyers do bad things, but more importantly they truly believe they should get away with it.

“No wrongdoing” is legaleze

There seems to be no difference, at least in the minds of people like Conyers, between getting away with doing wrong and not actually doing it. At no point yet has Conyers claimed he isn’t a creep who uses his power to manipulate women he employs into being sexual objects for him. That isn’t what’s important to him. What’s important is that he got his victims to sign documents absolving him legally from his actions.

For this reason, he believes he needs to continue to represent the people of Michigan who have kept him in office for half a century.

This is a systemic problem that exists everywhere in free America, but the fact that it’s apparently rampant in Washington DC is utterly disgusting. In a seven-year period, Congress dished out millions of dollars to 235 people for “workplace violations.” Perhaps more infuriating is that it’s not the perpetrators, their campaigns, or their Congressional offices who pay for these settlements. They’re paid by taxpayers.

How Congress plays by different rules on sexual harassment and misconduct

https://www.washingtonpost.com/politics/how-congress-plays-by-different-rules-on-sexual-harassment-and-misconduct/2017/10/26/2b9a8412-b80c-11e7-9e58-e6288544af98_story.htmlWhen settlements do occur, members do not pay them from their own office funds, a requirement in other federal agencies. Instead, the confidential payments come out of a special U.S. Treasury fund.

Congressional employees have received small settlements, compared with the amounts some public figures pay out. Between 1997 and 2014, the U.S. Treasury has paid $15.2 million in 235 awards and settlements for Capitol Hill workplace violations, according to the congressional Office of Compliance. The statistics do not break down the exact nature of the violations.

How do we stop this from happening? How can we protect the women and men who are victimized? How do we get these creeps out of the halls of power in our nation’s capital? We need to make it as transparent as possible.

Every settlement dollar should be broadcast to the world

If an incident is worthy of having taxpayer dollars used to hush people up, then the people need to know about it. We need to know who did what. While payment of settlements aren’t always done because of actual crimes committed, we should have the ability to discern for ourselves when an elected official does something worthy of a payout.

The club in DC is corrupt. We all know this. While it may be hard to track down all of the wrongdoing, we can at least attempt to address the misconduct by public officials against their own employees. That’s a reasonable expectation.

‘Ghost Guns’ prove that gun control can never work as promised

Ghost Guns prove that gun control can never work as promised

The Rancho Tehama Shooting demonstrated that gun control only empowers the government and criminals while making the situation far worse for the innocent.

Last week the Leftist media came to the astounding realisation that criminals don’t obey the law and that they can make their own guns, negating any kind of control or confiscation regimes. Were the media knowledgeable on the subject, they would have been aware of these facts. So let us endeavour to educate them on the reality of guns and that they should be looking elsewhere if they truly want to ‘protect the children’.

The basic technology of firearms makes them easy to produce.

In simplest terms a firearm is merely a container for a chemical reaction that produces high pressure gas to apply force to a projectile. It essentially only has a few components, that being the chemical propellant, projectile, ignition source and the container itself. The technology grew out of the invention of gun powder more than a thousand years ago with the first cannons appearing more than 700 years ago.

The technology has advanced to where the propellant, projectile and ignition source are combined into a self-contained package called a cartridge that is activated by a firing mechanism. A gun that holds and fires one cartridge at a time is the simplest and easiest to produce. The primary innovations of this technology revolved around how these cartridges (or rounds) are placed and extracted from the container (i.e. the firing chamber and barrel) which enabled the firing of multiple shots. The earliest repeating firearms have multiple chambers and been around for 160 years. Mechanisms to extract and chamber a fresh round to be fired with one trigger pull are termed semi-automatic and when the mechanism does this on a continuous basis with one trigger pull it is an automatic firearm. (These have been around for over 100 years)

There is nothing really magical or mysterious about these relatively simple machines that were in fact the first internal combustion engines. Thus it is merely a case of obtaining a tube of sufficient strength and dimensions to hold and fire a cartridge, a system to change out them out and a firing mechanism. Over the years there have been plenty of examples of guns made from common materials and with 3D printers

Gun control can never work.

One of the biggest Utopian fantasies of the Left is that guns can somehow be taken from the people and everyone will live happily ever after. The problem with this kind of fanciful thinking is that it ignores the fact that one cannot ban the raw materials for making a gun so criminals will always have them. They have been made by inmates in high security correctional institutions around the world and by criminals on the street.
If inmates in high security prisons can somehow fashion guns out of common materials, how can one stop criminals from building them on the outside?

The Takeaway

No one should be under the illusion that the gun grabbers actually care about ‘gun safety’ or protecting the children. If that were the case they wouldn’t be working towards gun confiscation as their ultimate goal – and lying about it every step of the way. As has been demonstrated, these weapons can be easily replicated as in the California example. Even if they were able to fool people into turning in their guns, they would soon be at a severe disadvantage by those who ignore the law. The gun grabber fantasy is that a ‘gun-free’ nation would be progressive paradise, this has been shown to not be the case with gun crime having an 27% increase in UK this year.

If the Left really cared about the issue, they would forget about gun control and power it engenders to the government and concern themselves with criminal control instead.

Brooklyn College to police: No bathroom for you

Brooklyn College to police No bathroom for you

They say a tree grows in Brooklyn. Those trees might be in new trouble, based on an outrageous bathroom policy by a taxpayer-funded public college trying to keep police – including many officers of color – from going anywhere near its precious students.

Brooklyn College, one of the flagship four-year colleges in the taxpayer-funded City University of New York system, is directing officers in need to a dilapidated, filthy and obscure bathroom at the outskirts of the campus. According to one report, the bathroom has an “out of order” sign on one stall, no soap and no paper towels.

A spokesman for the college said the policy is meant to encourage officers to use the select facility rather than “walking across either quadrangle” (the large grassy spaces between the college’s primary buildings). However, anti-police animus among the student body may be the cause.

The current student government president speculates some students are afraid of the police. A college student newspaper recently tied students’ discomfort to a New York Police Department undercover surveillance operation of students at the campus. The discomfort does not appear to be about crime; when a college maintenance worker got arrested in 2015 for selling cocaine on campus, students protested – the police!

A petition to the college president to ban police from the campus entirely is reportedly being circulated. But don’t count on the college administration stepping in to stop the apparent sanctuary campus policy towards criminals, or terrorists. The college invited Bernie Sanders to be its commencement speaker last spring.

There was also a total lack of soap and paper towels.
