Attack on Westminster Bridge and Parliament

I’m presently watching this on Sky News (started on France 24 both are doing good coverage – see the TV link in the top bar for a connection).

A car ran down a bunch of folks on the bridge, ran into some railing at Parliament.

A person got out, stabbed a police officer and was shot by the officer’s mates.

All still unfolding now, so “more late”.

    Thanks, E.M. Smith, for confirming the need to restore society to sanity (contact with reality).

  2. E.M.Smith says:

    Parliament and Downing Street in lockdown.

    Ms. May has been sped away in a car, it is believed.

    The event proper seems to be over (but watch out for the “double tap”…)

    Now we’re into the mess and clean up phase as armed officers are searching all of Parliament and related areas.

    Gee, wonder if this will be Yet Another Cranky Islamist Jihadi… as if there is any doubt.

    Embrace in your midst an ideology that despises you and has a philosophy of killing anyone from whom a “perceived insult” arrives (even if none was sent…) and guess what happens…

  3. E.M.Smith says:

    France24 reporting some other “possibly related incidents” in London.

    No details yet.

    It is necessary for the civilised Western democracies to acknowledge that Islam has declared war on socially liberal society and respond accordingly, in a similar manner that Japanese and Germans suspected of being a threat to security and social order were dealt with in the Second World War.

    A ban on all terror-supporting organisations – especially the Moslem Brotherhood and all charities supporting terrorist organisations throughout the Middle East and in particular “Palestine” should be introduced immediately, with especial reference to all organisations funded by the United Nations.

    For starters.

    The seventh century death cult of Islam has been engaged in a practically continuous war against the civilised West since the seventh century, and is entirely incompatible with socially liberal civilised democratic society.

    If we wish to preserve over a millennium’s scientific, philosophical and humanitarian progress, we must take drastic action, the longer we delay the more bloody will be the result.

  7. David A says:

    Cat, no need to ban Islam. Just enforce existing sedition ,murder and rape laws against any group or individual that wishes to legalise murder ( all Islamic jursprudence) rape, same thing, honor killings, FGM, etc. When Islam formerly rejects such barbarity in thought, written word or deed, then treat them like any other group, until then treat them like ANY OTHER CRIMINAL group with such immoral illegal proveably seditious ideology.

  8. catweazle666 says:

    “until then treat them like ANY OTHER CRIMINAL group with such immoral illegal proveably seditious ideology.”

    Quite so.

    In other words, until they renounce Sharia law take those who are already here out of circulation and those that aren’t, restrict to their own countries.

    France24 has a new live youtube link.

    Here’s the sky news:

  11. philjourdan says:

    The reports have the death toll climbing. At this point, what you see is more than what anyone else knows.

  12. E.M.Smith says:

    ATM. Sky reporting 20 injured, 4 dead: The attacker, the stabbed officer, and 2 others.

    Many of the injuries described as “catastrophic”…

  13. Oliver K. Manuel says:

    Chaos and violence are perhaps being used to try to keep Trump and May from ending seven decades of deceit disguised as 97% consensus science.”

    Muslims and Christians are both being used to keep crooked politicians in control.

    The only hope for society now is a prompt return to contact with reality.

  14. R. de Haan says:

    Rapes, killings, terror attackes will continue as long as the sociapath leadership in Europe refuses to draw the line and finaly undertake a serious effort to protect the people that voted them into power.
    They have to act because is they don’t they will be removed from office.

    Today the Turks came up with new threats stating that people in Germany would no longer be able to walk the streets safely if freedom and democracy was no longer enforced. This comes from a country and a leader that prepares for a vote that will abolish democracy completely and operates with total discard of human right and which third biggest city is called Berlin.

    In France today a poll was published stating that 1/3 of the islamic population believed that terror was an acceptable practice to obtain their objectives (with no reference to what those objectives migt be)
    We already know that all the pink views of integration pushed by MSM and the political establishment are a total failure and Merkel went, like many of her ilk responsible for the mandated acceptance of islamic refugees in Europe, totally bunkers: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nqmN69aWTs4
    We have similar sociopaths in office all over the USA as well and with the rape attack in Md today, just as they anounced to uphold a sanctuary status for illegals, the need to act has never been bigger: http://nation.foxnews.com/2017/03/20/brutal-new-details-emerge-alleged-rape-maryland-girl-two-teens-one-here-illegally

    It is completely clear that the entire concept for flooding Western Civilizations with assylum seekers and refugees that are not competative with our social standards is planned and simply serves Agenda 21 to destroy the West and its populations.

    Trump knows but he can’t break steel with his bare hands as he is currently stuck in the very DC swamp he wanted to drain.
    We will desperately need the old fashioned Tar and Feathers approach to rid ourselves of those running us into the ground and remove the illegals and criminals at any price.

    It’s hard and in Europe it will be even harder but this is now about the survival of our civilization and without fierce opposition and a thorough clean up of all our political fortresses and institutions we are finished.

  15. R. de Haan says:

    That an islamic terrorist attacked the political hart of the UK only confirms that Brexit has been the right decission. I only wonder how long it will take before we see boats with fleeing refugees cross the English Channel back to the Continent. People are really fed up with this shit.

  16. R. de Haan says:

    The right response all over the web, like this one: https://realclimatescience.com/2017/03/rivers-of-blood-2/

  17. R. de Haan says:

    This is how the West is conquered in 2017: http://www.zerohedge.com/news/2017-03-22/turkey-threatens-europeans-you-will-not-walk-safely-streets-if-current-attitude-pers
    Through history islam conquered and controlled vast area’s of continental Europe. Extremely bloody sieges and wars were fought. Today they come in, receive 1000 euros for starters, access to social security, including contributions to the family abroad, a home, the furnishment of the home, education, medical insurance and incidentally a job.
    They must think we have gone entirely mad.

  18. jim2 says:

    My little verse was about white people, but the real thing we are losing is Western concepts, ideals, and culture. To me, this is more devastating than terrorism.

  19. Jeff says:

    For those who follow such things, 322 is a special number, not just because of the attacks in Brussels last year. Look up HotelZaZa and Skull and Bones (who have a special Room 322 ritual).

    Numerology is big to these folks, who plan everything by the numbers. Same sort of thing as people who have astrologers or diviners (sounds crazy, but when you’re that rich and/or powerful…).

    Manly P. Hall explains some of this, and vigilantcitizen, cuttingedge. and crossroad.to touch on it. I see “numeric significance” here in Germany a lot, and apparently Hitler was obsessed by it (certainly more than a few apples short of a full strudel there)…

  20. E.M.Smith says:

    OK, I looked up HotelZaZa and it is a Hotel in Houston. So?

    Like the Strudel line… may have to borrow it :-)

    As noted in the past:
    http://www.europeanamericansunited.org/school1/Fiction/kipling/awakened.htm

    At some point the public at large will turn a corner over some similar provocation and they will strike out if the government refuses to do their duty to protect them by stopping this slow motion invasion.

    The the price paid as a result, will fall at the feet of those who have defended the madness of massive influx of groups which categorically oppose all forms of western cultural norms and assimilation. The social infection will reach a crisis and like a sudden onset fever the body politic will strike back – the result like a massive immune reaction will result in an effort one way or another to throw out or destroy the invaders. It is a predictable as the sunrise and only the fools and the brainwashed will be surprised when it happens.

  23. Jeff says:

    Hotel ZaZa is indeed in Houston, and is a very posh place. They have a room, 322, which is neither listed, nor reservable, yet guests have “addidentally” been booked into it. Gargle ZaZa room 322 to see what the room is. Pretty much a dungeon setup. As I said, it’s mentioned on a number of sites, some off-the-wall, others journo, and yet others like reddit:

  24. Jeff says:

    Wierd. I just posted the link, and the entire article posted, even though my cut buffer was empty.
    Sorry about that. Never happened before (usually I get stuff eaten out of my comments because I forgot about .gt. and .lt. being “special”… sigh…

  26. Larry Ledwick says:

    An article on how to defeat (or at least control) asymmetrical warfare between nations and non-state groups who do not present a traditional military target for a traditional army to counter.

    http://www.theamericanconservative.com/articles/logic-of-a-modern-militia/

    The interesting point is that in a sense this already exists both in statute and custom but has been strongly suppressed over the last couple of decades by propaganda that serves the leftist agenda.

    In statue every able bodies male from 18 – 45 is already in the militia
    10 U.S. Code § 246 – Militia: composition and classes

    (a) The militia of the United States consists of all able-bodied males at least 17 years of age and, except as provided in section 313 of title 32, under 45 years of age who are, or who have made a declaration of intention to become, citizens of the United States and of female citizens of the United States who are members of the National Guard.
    (b) The classes of the militia are—
    (1) the organized militia, which consists of the National Guard and the Naval Militia; and
    (2) the unorganized militia, which consists of the members of the militia who are not members of the National Guard or the Naval Militia.

    This is also the legal basis for the draft if it is needed.

    By custom in common law the concept of a sheriff or other authorized person could “call out a posse” to assist law enforcement dating back to Anglo-Saxon England, around the time of King Alfred the Great in the ninth century. Although often thought of as obsolete it still exists and is occasionally used. Here in Colorado there are at least 17 county Sheriffs’ Offices who have set up organized posses. Today they are treated as authorized police auxiliary units to the Sheriff’s department but in time of emergency average citizens could be engaged to assist law enforcement under this standing authority. In fact even today you often read stories of average citizens taking on urgent policing rolls until the “official” law enforcement agency can get personnel on scene.

    https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/volokh-conspiracy/wp/2014/05/15/sheriffs-and-the-posse-comitatus/

    This common law concept is little used but still exists, but recently has been neutered by the constant drum beat on a number of themes like strongly suppressing appropriate violence by citizens to protect themselves and others and nip more severe violence in the bud.

    Although it should not be “encouraged” the days of “street Justice” may need to make a come back if official law enforcement agencies continue to look the other way when favored groups freely and openly attack peaceful protesters.

    It will be interesting to see the outcome of the case of “Based Stick Man” (Kyle Chapman) and charges filed against him for defending other Trump supporters from the attacks of Antifa thugs on May 4 2017, while the police authorities in Berkley ignored violence by the Antifa assault groups.

    You only posted the link. WordPress is treating it like a link to an image, and since it is on a line by itself, displaying the “image” contents.

    Yup.

    @Another Ian:

    Seems to have abundant clue…

    I’d only add that “Those who do not see the light, must be made to feel the heat. ”

    (A rough quote / paraphrase of someone long ago, attribution lost… these folks have something like it from Reagan: https://www.brainyquote.com/quotes/quotes/r/ronaldreag383264.html )

    IMHO, there was a point where the EU got in bed with the House Of Saud. About the same time, the Masons added the Koran to the Torah and Bible as accepted book to pledge upon, and the Royals of the UK started hanging out with the Royals of Jordan and Saudi. I suspect all as part of the Globalist Agenda moving forward to adopt the Muslim World into the Globalist sphere. Getting all that loverly oil inside the tent, so to speak…

    As part of that, the cultural jihad approach of The House of Saud was the price of entry of the oil into the Globalist Agenda. Basically, the Globalists thought they could civilize and tame Islam, and the Islamists saw it as their opportunity for a Cultural / Demographic Jihad. So far, the Jihadis are winning…

    At this point, IMHO, with Soros and the rest of the Globalist Cabal (including the Royals – at least until Her Majesty approved BREXIT – so may have caught clue… perhaps when Di died) bought into a “unification” of Europe and Islam (as part of the destruction of religion and nation as ‘dividers’): they have failed to appreciate that Islam will NOT be diluted nor modified and so TPTB will NOT reject the influx of it into the EU until it is way too late. It is, after all, their goal; and they “have a deal” with the House of Saud. (And had one with Turkey when it first applied to the EU – now not so much…)

    Until the Globalists realize their error and that Islam can not mutually exist with Western Values (as the basic values of both are exactly opposite on many critical key points – vis Palmyra) and realize there must be at least a bi-polar world, and likely a multi-polar one (as I think there are other non-compatible world views elsewhere in the world), this mess will fester and become a systemic disease. In short, until the Globalists give up their ideological core, or are defeated, things will get worse.

    The Regular Folks of the world will be faster to figure this out (process already at about 40% to 50% in most EU countries) and that will lead to a 3 way battle (ideological or physical TBD) between the Globalist Elite, Islam, and The People.

    Brexit, Nexit, Frexit, etc. are just one manifestation. Islamic Violence (it isn’t “terrorism”… I’m not terrified, I know just what to expect…) will increase in the EU. And the Globalist Elite will continue their propaganda wars, their escalating Police State, and their waves of “migrants”. How the end game blows up into chaos and destruction, I’m not sure. That that is what will happen unless the islamization of the EU is reversed, soon, is clear. Just look at “Christian Lebanon” of the pre-Carter era as the model…

  29. Larry Ledwick says:

    I love the way he writes and his tale triggered some memories of my own about minor events that left a lifetime mark. I find I also have the same experience with remembering mean people vs the special ones who provided a benchmark for behavior or taught an important lesson. I remember the mean ones existed and retain a rough sketch of them in my mind but the nice folks, the little things like sitting on the grass watching the bees on the garden flowers are much more vivid to recall.

  30. Jeff says:

    I really hope and pray that President Trump goes “full bore” with domestic oil production and exploration, and that he (and others) basically say “Saud off” to the oil cartels. They are sponsoring terrorism, robbing and subjugating their own people, and basically causing major problems wherever they get involved. And their interests, rarely, if ever, align with ours.
    Never have, never will.

    I tend to think that the globalists are using the Moslems (in their blind pursuit of the Caliphate, cf Erdogan) to further their own “Georgia Guidestones” goals. Would be interesting to see what would happen if the Jihadis got a clue. Don’t know if it would be any better for us (especially here in Germany), but maybe it might make Soros et. al. run for the hills…

    I used to drive through that tunnel (Rue de Peripherique) where Lady Di died a couple of times a month. Ugly, ugly tunnel, lots of traffic, crazy drivers, trucks, etc., but still one wonders about that.
    Seems more than just greedy Paraparazzi at work there. Methinks globalists (or other, erm, well-lit names) at work there…

  31. E.M.Smith says:

    Per Di and the tunnel:

    Saw a very good investigative bit on it. White paint from a particular kind of car on the Mercedes. A car of that type had been repainted to orange just after the event. Etc. etc.

    Even looked at tire marks and paint on the wall leading into the tunnel.

    Decent forensics.

    The upshot is that at 100 mph a little white (something – fiat?) was doing a normal entry to the roadway. The Mercedes (at that speed, ‘out of nowhere’) clipped it, and that sent it a little up the wall, where it ricocheted off and went airborne as the roadway drops away. By the time it touches down, there is not enough control time to avoid the pillars. Their math and physics works.

    So it looks like mostly a somewhat drunk driver being way too fast exceeded his ability to avoid a surprise entry of another car into the roadway and encountered a descending bit of road where he had no ability to even attempt control at that speed and angle. The rest is physics.

    Car was owned by a Vietnamese? immigrant who didn’t want to be a photo op… so left the scene. Others at the scene claimed to have seen a little white something leaving… (which coupled with the white paint on the Mercedes was why they went looking).

    No conspiracy required.
