Lost in the Shuffle

All of today's headlines were about some Supreme Court decision, relegating to the lower reaches of the media websites was this:
  • A suspected Islamist pinned the severed head of his boss to the gates of a US-owned gas factory in France Friday in what President Francois Hollande called a "terrorist" attack.

    The alleged assailant, identified as 35-year-old married father-of-three Yassin Salhi, also smashed his vehicle into the Air Products factory, causing an explosion.

    The grisly attack near France's second city of Lyon came on an especially bloody day worldwide, with at least 37 gunned down at a beach resort in Tunisia and 25 killed in a suicide bombing in Kuwait claimed by Islamic State extremists.
Just asking, but might this be a prelude to something brewing over the Fourth of July weekend? Something that might explain the palpable panic down at HQ lately? There is a rumor of a "redeployment" of certain personnel, but that is standard for big holiday weekends and has been for over ten years now.

Washington (CNN)Authorities are warning of possible terrorist threats around the July 4 holiday, several law enforcement officials told CNN on Friday.

The Department of Homeland Security, the FBI and the National Counterterrorism Center issued a joint intelligence bulletin to law enforcement across the U.S.

I doubt ISIS has anything planned for the 4th, or any other day in the near future. They are after soft targets. Major cities in the U.s. are too well protected by the feds and local PDs.

That was the first terror attack of the day.
In Tunisia, a gunman shot up a beach resort full of European Tourists, 37 dead, 35 injured.
In Kuwait, a Sunni ISIS suicide bomber blew himself up in a Shia Mosque, 27 dead, 200 injured.

But don't worry, ISIS is just a JV team, and Al-Qaeda is on the run! Maybe we need to send President Obama back to Cairo to apologize to the Ummah again?

Yes, there is a reason you are all working 12 hour days on the 4th of July.

It is not because Rahm wants you cracking down on non-Kosher Hotdogs and kids waving non-union made flags.

Once again ISIS has us running around chasing our tails over nothing. It's all propaganda and getting PDs all over the U.S. to work their personnel overtime about a non-existent threat.

Something's brewing with the scumbag coward terrorist crowd! Not sure they would telegraph their movements and the date! They thrive on surprise and U.S. not being prepared, watched an interesting take on the only great news outlet Fox world news, the guy analyst thinks it could well be a hacker attack on banks, he said imagine the panic when people could not have access to their money! Maybe right? Just be careful swivel head, guns cleaned-oiled, fresh ammo, protect each other we deal with the animals, the thugs and now this! The true heroes? The men and women in Blue (yes that includes firefighters)!

The only panic so far is by The Floundering 35th House Mouse Brigade, scurrying about for Time Due slips, excuses and reoccurring IOD's.

Wake up people. What else is there to say? Last 50 years this country has been losing its faith in God, it morality and commen sense. The country that was built on faith in God that was a powerful force in armed forces , economics and world policies is now a laughing stock and a target for all other countries. The middle class is evaporating under stress of supporting the do nothing - entitlement peer class while the upper class continues to tax the shit out of us. From the piece of shit false messiah that some refer to as their president to the low life alderman - they don't give a rats ass about us. The country's demise can come as soon as in our life time. I weep for our children.

This "religion of peace" solicits the mentally impaired to murder in their prophets name. They are insane, and since they recruit in the prisons and other disenfranchised areas, they have a never ending supply of miscreants at their disposal.

This religion, or cult - your choice, is growing. Their objective is to infiltrate every country in the world and eventually over populate these host countries and take them over. They have not evolved one bit in 2 thousand years. They are patient. Make no mistake, there are no moderates in this holy war. That is their name for it.

The Jews and Catholics, true religions of peace, are losing members at an alarming rate. As people evolve, they begin to embrace the religion of society. An orderly society is what they believe in and embrace. No need for supreme beings to show us the way. We have evolved, and know how to act in a civilized fashion. Religion may be a part, but it's not the whole of why we act well.

As police officer, we know the details. If you are a civilian, start doing a little research. It doesn't take much work to realize that things are bad. They are going to get worse.

I hope you are correct. But you are ignoring what these attacks represent.

These attacks are not being planned by some terrorist master mind plotting in his lair. Osama is dead, and no one person has taken his place. These attacks are decentralized and individual attacks against targets the killers are acquainted with. In France, the whack-job delivery boy beheaded his boss and attacked Air Products, likely because it was the only facility on his delivery route that had dangerous or hazardous materials. In Tunisia the guy attacked a Hotel beach with an AK rifle. Want to wager that he or one of his Islamic buddies worked there?

When it happens here in the US (again!) we will find out that it was an Islamic we knew about. The guy(s) was acting "normally" right up to the attack. Just like Major Hassan and Speedbump and Flashbang were acting normally. And the FBI already had their names in FBI files.

This guy has an interesting analysis:

The FBI has been scooping up lots of people in the US these past two weeks. At least six that the media have reported on, and a whole lot more have been "questioned."

The one terrorist that the FBI took into custody recently had discussed plans to blow up a bomb at Wells and VanBuren. At the time, I doubt Cal's Liquors or Billy Goat Tap were strategic targets.
Stay safe our first responder brother and sisters.
