Laguna Beach Installing Barriers to Protect from Car Attacks...


Laguna Beach Installing Barriers to Protect from Car Attacks...
“We’ll place K-Rail anywhere there’s not a car because the cars are a natural barrier. We want to make sure we protect everybody,” said Laguna Beach Police Chief Laura Farinella. 
Today’s street attack in Barcelona is fresh on Farinella’s mind. She knows there are key spots that are vulnerable. 
One such spot — he popular main beach on Pacific Coast Highway. An anti-immigration rally is set for Sunday. Concrete carriers will go up to block a car from jumping the curb into a crowd. 
“Sometimes when you get a lot of people on a crowded sidewalk they want to cheat and go into the street and we want to avoid that from happening. So that in addition to any vehicles coming up over the sidewalk to strike a pedestrian is what were trying to prevent,” said Farinella. 
The iconic Laguna location is a gathering place. A driver who has an accident on this stretch of PCH or a purposeful attack like the ones on the promenade in Nice, France or on London Bridge would be devastating. 
Said one Laguna Beach visitor, “As you look at it, obviously you’re scared and you’re nervous about the potential of it happening here as well..easily a feasible thing to happen in a very idyllic and beautiful spot.”

STEVE BANNON tells Weekly Standard: ‘Trump Presidency That We Fought For, And Won, Is Now Over’

If what Bannon says is true, then Trump had better get his house in order, or he's going to be out on his ass real quick.

Breitbart News To Go ‘Thermonuclear’ Against Globalists Inside the Trump Administration


I hope to God this is true:
In an interview with Bloomberg News, Bannon issued the following warning: 
“If there’s any confusion out there, let me clear it up: I’m leaving the White House and going to war for Trump against his opponents — on capitol hill, in the media, and in corporate America,” Bannon said Friday in an interview hours after his departure was announced by the administration. 
Breitbart News is reportedly plotting to go ‘thermonuclear’ against ‘globalists’ inside the Trump administration ...
Bannon may be personally gearing up to take on the Drudge Report’s Matt Drudge. 
According to former Trump aide Sam Nunberg, Bannon believes Drudge ‘accelerated’ his White House exit driven by continuous negative coverage. Buzzfeed reports: Sources who have spoken to Bannon say the nationalist firebrand is expected to return to his old news site Breitbart. 
And one person close to Bannon says he has his eye on who he believes helped accelerate his ouster: Matt Drudge. 
“Matt Drudge worked to remove Steve Bannon, that is the reality,” said former Trump campaign adviser Sam Nunberg, who regularly talks with Bannon. “And I hope Matt is happy because his work helped Bannon not be in the West Wing, but it helped Democrats and people that didn’t vote for Trump be in the West Wing.” 
Nunberg is specifically frustrated with the continued presence and influence of chief economic adviser Gary Cohn, National Security Adviser HR McMaster, and the duo he derisively calls Javanka, Jared Kushner and Ivanka Trump. 
Bannon has openly feuded with Cohn, and Breitbart has for weeks been waging a battle against McMaster. 
Kushner developed a relationship with Drudge dating back to the campaign, and Bannon allies also blame the son-in-law for his ouster. 
People close to Bannon say Bannon privately hoped Kushner would “go down” over the intensifying Russia investigation. But a source close to Kushner said anyone who thinks you can tell Matt Drudge what to do and have influence over him does not understand Matt Drudge. 
Media relationships are important in the White House, Nunberg said, and the fact that Drudge hasn’t given Breitbart a hyperlink in months, and didn’t like Bannon. 
“It’s not lost on Steve or Breitbart staff that Drudge was out for Steve,” Nunberg said.

THERE WAS A SECOND ATTACK IN BARCELONA, BUT Spanish police kill suspects in second attack after 13 die in Barcelona


From the BBC:
Spanish police say they have shot dead five suspected terrorists in the town of Cambrils in a second vehicle attack, after an earlier one in Barcelona killed 13 people and injured dozens. The men were linked to the Barcelona attack, police say. 
Police are still hunting the man who drove his van into crowds on Las Ramblas in Barcelona on Thursday. Spain's PM Mariano Rajoy described it as a "jihadist attack", which so-called Islamic State said it had carried out.

CIA 'warned Spanish police' of an upcoming attack in the exact place it happened


The CIA told Los Mossos, the Catalonian regional police force, that Barcelona was a top target for jihadist terrorists as recently as June this year, El Peridoco, a local paper, reported on Friday. 
"Two months ago the Central Intelligence Agency passed a notice to the Catalan autonomous police," the paper said. "It even warned of the risk to Las Ramblas," the pedestrian thoroughfare hit by an attack on Thursday.

Fusion GPS Co-Founder Will Answer Questions -- But Not Publicly, and Not With Senators Present


From the Washington Examiner:
Glenn Simpson, the co-founder of the firm that assembled the infamous "Russian dossier" that purported to offer intelligence about then-presidential candidate Donald Trump, will be interviewed by the Senate Judiciary Committee later this month. 
Simpson's interview, however, will most likely be with committee staff instead of the senators themselves, according to a report by Politico, which cited a source familiar with the issue. 
The funding for the dossier has become of increasing interest for conservatives, as it assembled a host of allegations against Trump while he was a candidate, most of which have either been debunked or can't be proven. Many of the sources of the claims in the dossier also can't be pinned down with any accuracy. 
The dossier was used in part to obtain a warrant to surveil Trump associate Carter Page in 2016, according to a report by the Washington Post in April. Page has constantly mocked the document as the "dodgy dossier."

Debbie Wasserman Schultz’s Ex-IT Aide Imran Awan Indicted on Four Counts


From Fox News:
Imran Awan, a former IT aide for Democratic Florida Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz, was indicted Thursday on four counts including bank fraud and making false statements. The indictment also includes his wife Hina Alvi. 
The grand jury decision in U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia comes roughly a month after Awan was arrested at Dulles airport in Virginia trying to board a plane to Pakistan, where his family is from. 
Awan and other IT aides for House Democrats have been on investigators’ radar for months over concerns of possible double-billing, alleged equipment theft, and access to sensitive computer systems. 
Most lawmakers fired Awan in February, but Schultz had kept him on until his arrest in July. 
The indictment itself, which merely represents formal charges and is not a finding of guilt, addresses separate allegations that Awan and his wife engaged in a conspiracy to obtain home equity lines of credit from the Congressional Federal Credit Union by giving false information about two properties – and then sending the proceeds to individuals in Pakistan.
AND THEN THERE'S THIS:

Imran Awan was but one of the IT aides who was fired...
"Brothers Abid, Imran, and Jamal Awan were barred from computer networks at the House of Representatives"
and
"and Hina Alvi, Imran’s wife"
****
Hina Alvi sent the satellite secrets to to SUPARCO for all the OPEC nations".
Legistorm verification of Hina Alvi's employment with Debbie Wasserman Schultz
Let’s talk about how Hina Alvi is really a satellite girl. So, she works for SUPARCO which is directly connected with the Space program in both Bangladesh and through Soraiya Begum which is her mother – and also Pakistan. She’s a satellite expert in Bangladesh
Hina Alvi listed as Conference Secretariat @ 2nd Int'l Conference on Space 9/20-22/2016
Did Mikhail Alperovich's VT IDirect do business with Hina Alvi's (Awan 'wife') SUPARCO? Any satellite contracts to disclose?
SUPARCO and NASA: The NASA-SUPARCO cooperation agreement called for the training of Pakistani scientists and technicians at NASA space science centers. Before the June 1962 launch, NASA had begun to train Pakistani scientists at Wallops Island and the Goddard Space Flight Centers. NASA also set up fellowships and research associate programs at American universities for “advanced training and experience.” http://www.wisconsinproject.org/pakistan-derives-its-first-hatf-missiles-from-foreign-space-rockets/

I returned, and saw under the sun, that the race is not to the swift, nor the battle to the strong, neither yet bread to the wise, nor yet riches to men of understanding, nor yet favour to men of skill; but time and chance happeneth to them all.

For man also knoweth not his time: as the fishes that are taken in an evil net, and as the birds that are caught in the snare; so are the sons of men snared in an evil time, when it falleth suddenly upon them.

UNFUCKINGBELIEVABLE

Washington Free Beacon:

CNN: There Will Be Questions About Whether Barcelona Attack Was ‘Copycat’ of Charlottesville

CNN host Wolf Blitzer said Thursday there would be questions if the Barcelona terror attack involving a van crashing into a group of people was a "copycat" of what happened in Charlottesville, Va.
At least 13 people were killed and more than 50 were injured in Barcelona on Thursday when men rammed their van into a crowd of pedestrians at Las Ramblas, a popular tourism area in the city in northeastern Spain. The attack came five days after a man with white supremacist group ties was arrested for driving his car into a group of counter-protesters in Charlottesville, killing one woman and injuring multiple others.
CNN national security correspondent Jim Sciutto said the "shared tactics" of the attackers in both instances was "alarming."
"In light of the uproar of the last several days, five days apart you have a white supremacist in Charlottesville use a vehicle to kill, and here you have attackers at least following the modus operandi of terrorists using vehicles apparently to kill as well, and those shared tactics that should be alarming," Sciutto said.
"There will be questions about copycats," Blitzer said. "There will be questions if what happened in Barcelona was at all a copycat version of what happened in Charlottesville, Virginia. Even though there may be different characters, different political ambitions, they used the same killing device: a vehicle going at high speed into a group, a large group of pedestrians."
