After Over an Hour of Youtube Freezing my Uploads, Here ya Go!
Police have arrested Ahmad Rahami, wanted in connection with the bombings in Elizabeth, New Jersey and the Manhattan neighborhood of Chelsea, after a shoot-out in Linden, New Jersey. Two police officers were reported injured.
Two officers were reported injured by gunfire, after they responded to a call in Linden, a city just south of Elizabeth.

The owner of a local bar spotted a man sleeping in a car and alerted the police, Linden Mayor Derek Armstead told NBC News. As officers approached the car, the man opened fire.

New York Chelsea Bombing: Contrived And Staged

NYC, NJ Bombing UPDATES CriticalThinkingGetEnlightenedtitle
“I saw and heard about this ‘bombing’ on CNN. It must be true!” Yes, and the same TV Big Screen also depicts King Kong and Godzilla! Does the TV medium of technical communication automatically translate into reality? Of course not! Think (over), question, examine and evaluate what the mainstream media propaganda whores toss you! Pic Source: Found on the web.
If “8,000 surveillance (spy) cameras “helped to snare [the alleged / reported] ‘bomb suspect.’ “ then why weren’t they good enough to help prevent the alleged / reported “bombing?” If our U.S Government can send a duct-tape Red Green-type, module to the Moon and back, why can’t it harness the available and superb technology (which spies on everyday patriotic Americans) to provide upgraded security to those same inhabitants?
The reality: The New York bombings were contrived and staged. What we have, is another major “crime against peace” committed by our own American government!
This Moralmatters author thinks that one has to be a nutty conspiracy theorist to believe that the latest New York bombing (s) actually took place as reported. What? 29 people reportedly injured and no one killed? That is almost as ridiculous as the Sandy Hook hoax with 20 some (plus) souls, supposedly (allegedly / reportedly) “killed” and no one injured.
“A thinking person will question what he hears; examine what he sees; and evaluate what others would have him believe. When did government and its enabling mainstream media, tell the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth?”

A Moralmatters Reader offers the following commentary on the alleged (reported by the media whore) NYC “bombing” affair:

The SURE sign that the CHELSEA bomb story is a HOAX is that the media is now saying the perpetrators posted a MANIFESTO.
NYC, NJ Bombing UPDATES Manifesto
The alleged New York bombing [propaganda mainstream media] “report of a MANIFESTO is the sign that this story is a HOAX to push a specific agenda.” – Pic source: yarmresidentsassociation.org/wp-content/uploads/2015/02/Manifesto.png
The report of a MANIFESTO is the sign that this story is a HOAX to push a specific agenda.
Of course, the discerning reader will take note that the so-called trash can “bomb” was detonated in CHELSEA.
Does the name CHELSEA ring a bell?
Oh, you say that CHELSEA is the name of the only child of the 2016 Dem presidential candidate?
Not only that, but the 2016 Dem presidential candidate was filmed leaving the $10 million residence of her daughter CHELSEA only hours after that fake fainting spell in NYC on 9-11-2016.
NOT a coincidence. The Control System has exposed that last night’s trash can “bomb” in NYC was a HOAX using three very obvious signs:
1. News reports that the FAKE trash can “bomb” was detonated in CHELSEA.
2. LGBTQ (very heavy political agenda) claims it is responsible for this attack.
3. The existence of a MANIFESTO (the dead-giveaway sign of a HOAXED “attack”). The minute you hear about a manifesto in any news story is the same minute when you know that story is 100% a HOAX. Just in general, the report of a MANIFESTO = HOAX.
Yep This is Staged! – youtube.com/watch?v=ICXT27khZ6U
Furthermore and finally:
NYC, NJ Bombing UPDATES NewYorkChelseaBombingAhmad-Khan-Rahami20SUSPECT1-master675
Pic of crisis actor and / or patsy, Ahmad Khan Rahami, reported (aka, “picked”) to be a major suspect in the NY reported bombing. Wouldn’t you know; he is identified as a Muslim.” Pic Source: From propaganda mainstream media – nytimes.com/2016/09/19/nyregion/chelsea-explosion-what-we-know-and-dont-know.html?_r=0
Authorities allegedly captured the suspect “after a shootout” in the 100% HOAX NYC CHELSEA trash can “bomb” story. (See attached photo.) They captured him in LINDEN, NEW JERSEY
The Control System is now blaming a Muslim. Early reports indicated that the LGBTQ took responsibility, but maybe we will learn that this fake Muslim perpetrator is gay. The Control System likes to combine agendas such as the Muslim Extremist and the persecuted LGBTQ storylines. The media used both of those themes to great effect in the 100% HOAX Orlando Pulse Fairy Tale.
Here is the fake news story about how the “shootout” left an officer injured and a “suspicious” was found:
Officer injured In Shooting In Linden, NJ; Terror Suspect Arrested – September 19, 2016 | 11:15 AM – breaking911.com/breaking-news-officer-injured-shooting-linden-nj-suspicious-package-found/
Please also be aware:
Evidence of predictive programming in video game. Proof that the Chelsea event was a False Reality – 100% HOAX.
The video game pinpoints the exact location of the dumpster explosion in Chelsea:
BOOM! EXACT SPOT OF NYC DUMPSTER EVENT PREDICTED IN VIDEO GAME – youtube.com/watch?v=lxbaEzGWdV4&feature=youtu.be

Related to the above:

Note the propaganda mainstream media whore story line on the contrived and staged New York “bombing:”
Chelsea Bombing: What We Know and Don’t Know – nytimes.com

More related to the above. Another false reality event around the same time as the New York “bombing” event:

Minnesota Hoax – Demon On Wheels – youtube.com/watch?v=vueRSPY6bGo
The aforementioned Moralmatters Reader says of the MN staged event:
“The video shows the so-called victims to be nothing more than crisis actors who seem thrilled with the opportunity to appear on TV. This is yet another HOAX put in play to scare the public into demanding Martial Law.”

9 Weird Things About The NYC And NJ Bombs That Will Make You Say Hmmmm…

TOPICS:Daisy Luther

September 21, 2016
NYC, NJ Bombing UPDATES ThinkingBy Daisy Luther
You know me – I’m not prone to conspiracy theories (cough). But, I noticed some weird things about the pressure cooker bomb attacks that took place in New York City and New Jersey this weekend and the subsequent arrest of the alleged perpetrator.
Some things just don’t add up. Trust me, you won’t even need to don your tinfoil because none of this is outrageous.
1 – First, nobody died. Don’t get me wrong. I’m totally thrilled about that, but you have to ask yourself why? With 29 people injured there were obviously a fair number of people around. Yet everyone was well enough to be discharged from the hospital within hours of the blast. Was the bomb just positioned badly? Or was it designed to cause injury, but not too much injury?
2 – They sure found the mystery bomber quickly and efficiently. The last time I had to deal with the federal government, I ended up in an endless loop of phone transfers, when no one could figure out the right person to send me to. But they brought their game to a whole new level of efficiency with this that makes you wonder how anyone ever gets away with anything. The bomb fragments and the unexploded pressure cooker were examined and analyzed, a fingerprint was found, a match to the print was located on the system, and Ahmed Khan Rahami was identified. Then, the posters were produced, he was located due to a member of the public spotting him, and was then captured. All within 40 hours of the bomb blast and even though he was not on a terror watch list or flagged as a possible terrorist. Fast work.

3 – Although experts say this type of thing is usually a group activity, no other persons of interest are being sought. Experts say that the chances of Rahami NOT having assistance with logistics, etc., was “infinitesimally small.” Mike Rogers, former chairman of the House Intelligence Committee, said, “Normally the way this works, you have a cell doing logistics, bomb-making and assembly, and an operational one.”  Despite all of this, the New York Police Department said they are not actively looking for anyone else in connection with the incidents. (source)
4 – The culprit was just hanging around, asleep in a doorway like a homeless person, waiting to get busted. Rahami was spotted sleeping in a shop doorway and police were called. He shot at an officer and then ambled off down the street, shooting at a police car before being wounded and taken into custody. Now, I have two major issues with this. What kind of terrorist decides to curl up and take a nap in a shop doorway in an area he knows the police will be looking for him? Secondly, we all know the police have hair triggers…[url=http://child with bb gun shot]children get shot for holding a BB gun[/url], the caregiver of an autistic man got shot while laying down,  and an unarmed drivers got shot in front of his kid…but this guy sets off bombs, shoots two officers, shoots up a police car, and then wanders down the road holding a gun and he only gets wounded in the shootout?

5 – The placement of these bombs wasn’t very strategic. Usually, someone who sets off random bombs in the name of terror wants to do as much damage and inflict as much fear as possible. If these attacks were designed to maim and kill, why not plant a bomb when there are crowds of people around? When you are less likely to be singled out by CCTV walking alone at night shortly before the device explodes? It makes no sense does it? Terrorist attacks invariably aim for maximum impact with minimum risk. This was a complete reversal of that M.O.
6 – ISIS wants nothing to do with this one. The Minnesota stabbings that took place on the same day have been claimed by the Islamic State as an act committed by  ‘a soldier of the Islamic State’. There have been no claims at all that Rahami has links to ISIS.
7 – It wasn’t a very good bomb. The backpack with five bombs inside was found in a wastebasket around 9:30 p.m. on Sunday outside a neighborhood pub in Elizabeth, about 16 miles from New York City. Two men found the backpack about 500 feet from a train trestle and alerted police, officials said. (source). One of those bombs exploded as a police robot tried to defuse it, yet the others didn’t. That must have been one very lame bomb if it couldn’t even blow the others packed into a bag with it apart or trigger the explosive component in the remaining four so they also blew up.
8 – Somehow, the bomber didn’t really raise any eyebrows until now.[url=http://ahami traveled for extended periods to Afghanistan and Pakistan in the last five years, officials said. While in Pakistan in July 2011, he married a Pakistani woman. Two years later, in April 2013, he went to Pakistan and remained there until March 2014, visiting Afghanistan before returning to the United States.] Rahami was known to have travelled to Afghanistan, his home country, and also to Pakistan.[/url] This was known because he applied in 2011 to bring his Pakistani wife into the United States and the application was approved in 2012. So an Afghan national with a police record for trying to stab his sister-in-law traveled to Afghanistan and Pakistan spending months at a time there and it never raised a glance from any agency anywhere?  The TSA was satisfied he was visiting family. Obviously too busy harassing cancer patients. Despite all of that, there was no real suspicion about this guy until he was suddenly a major terrorist.
9 – What do we need to be distracted from? This always has to be the question when these situations take over the news. And the list is long, my friends. This freakshow of an election, the fact that Russia is accusing the US of starting WW3 in Syria, the upgraded effort to take away guns and personal medical decisions, the newest WikiLeaks…we could go on and on about the things no one wants us paying attention to.
See what I mean? Weird stuff. Lots of weird stuff. I’m not saying it never happened or that this dude wasn’t a terrorist or that someone else was responsible or that this was a false flag. I’m saying that there are holes in the official story that one could drive an 18-wheeler truck through.
But the official story sure does seem a bit questionable.
Or maybe Rahami is just so bad at being a terrorist that the Islamic State doesn’t want to claim him as one of theirs.

Chelsea Bombing Suspect Investigated By FBI Two Years Ago, Turned In By Father

TOPICS:Brandon Turbeville

September 21, 2016
NYC, NJ Bombing UPDATES CsudlADWgAA9ibK-1024x576By Brandon Turbeville
As has become the norm in terrorist attacks in the Western world, reports are now coming from the mainstream media that the suspect in the recent Chelsea bombing in New York and New Jersey, Ahmad Rahami, was known to the FBI before conducting his attacks over this past weekend.
Interestingly enough, the first acknowledgement of the fact that Rahami was known to the FBI came from Rahami’s father who cryptically shouted to reporters that he reported his son to the FBI two years ago.
As The Guardian reports,
The father of the man suspected in bombings in New York City and New Jersey contacted the FBI following a 2014 stabbing to express concerns that his son was a terrorist, he told reporters on Tuesday.
“Two years ago I go to the FBI because my son was doing really bad, OK?” Mohammed Rahami told the New York Times. “But they check almost two months, they say, ‘He’s OK, he’s clean, he’s not a terrorist.’ I say OK.”
He added: “Now they say he is a terrorist. I say OK.”

The Guardian continues,
A law enforcement official told the Associated Press that the FBI looked into the matter, but that Mohammed Rahami later retracted his comment and said he meant that his son, Ahmad Khan Rahami, was hanging out with the wrong crowd, including gangs.
The FBI reviewed its databases and found no credible connection to terrorism or threat to the US from the son, the official said.
Ahmad Khan Rahami was arrested for stabbing a person in the leg and possession of a firearm in 2014. But a grand jury declined to indict him, despite a warning from the arresting officer that Rahami was likely “a danger to himself or others”.
The New York Times goes further, however, in explaining the possible motivation Rahami may have had. The news agency reports,
It is not clear if officers ever interviewed Ahmad Rahami, but as investigators turn their focus to what might have motivated, inspired or led him to plant bombs in Chelsea in Manhattan and on the Jersey Shore, new clues are emerging indicating that he may have been increasingly receptive to extremist ideology.

When Mr. Rahami was captured during a shootout with the police on Monday, the authorities found a notebook, pierced with a bullet hole and covered in blood, expressing opinions sympathetic to jihadist causes, according to a law enforcement official who agreed to speak about the investigation only on the condition of anonymity.
In one section of the book, Mr. Rahami wrote of “killing the kuffar,” or unbelievers, the official said. Mr. Rahami also praised Anwar al-Awlaki, Al Qaeda’s leading propagandist, who died in a drone strike in Yemen, as well as the soldier in the Fort Hood shooting, one of the deadliest “lone wolf” attacks inspired by Al Qaeda.
Five years after his death in a drone strike in Yemen ordered by President Obama, Mr. Awlaki remains a powerful influence on would-be jihadists, especially in the English-speaking West. Among his documented admirers were Syed Rizwan Farook, who along with his wife killed 14 people in San Bernardino, Calif.; Omar Mateen, who fatally shot 49 people in an Orlando nightclub; and Tamerlan and Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, who staged an attack at the finish line of the Boston Marathon with pressure-cooker bombs in 2013.
Thousands of Mr. Awlaki’s lectures and jihadist declarations are available on the web, as is Inspire magazine, which has published detailed instructions for making pipe bombs as well as more sophisticated explosive devices using pressure cookers and Christmas lights, the same components used in the New York-area bombs.
Indeed, Anwar al-Awlaki is known to have links to a number of high-profile terrorists including Nidal Malik Hasan of the Ft. Hood Shootings, Umar Farouk Adbulmutallab aka the “underwear bomber,”Nawaf al-Hazmi, Khalid al Midhar and Hani Hanjour of the 9/11 attacks and a number of others.
Awlaki’s connections to such a high number of high-profile terrorist attacks as well as his connections to US intelligence was what led Webster Tarpley to label him as “an obvious US double agent who has been used to give the Al Qaeda seal of approval to dozens of terrorists.”
It is also important to note that, in the months after 9/11, Awlaki had dined at the Pentagon. As CBS News reported in its article, “Qaeda-Linked Imam Dined at Pentagon after 9/11,”
Anwar al-Awlaki – the radical spiritual leader linked to several 9/11 attackers, the Fort Hood shooting, and the attempted Christmas Day bombing of an airliner – was a guest at the Pentagon in the months after 9/11, a Pentagon official confirmed to CBS News.
Awlaki was invited as “…part of an informal outreach program” in which officials sought contact “…with leading members of the Muslim community,” the official said. At that time, Awlaki was widely viewed as a “moderate” imam at a mosque in Northern Virginia.
At the same time, the FBI was also interviewing Awlaki about his contacts with three of the 9/11 attackers – Nawaf al-Hazmi, Khalid al Midhar and Hani Hanjour – who were all part of the crew of five that hijacked the American Airlines jet that hit the Pentagon.
Overall, Rahami is suspected of having been the perpetrator behind a bomb that went off in the Chelsea neighborhood of New York which killed 29 people and for a bomb that went off in Seaside Park, New Jersey earlier that day. Explosives were also found in Elizabeth, New Jersey, not far from the Rahami home.

Is This A False Flag?

One key aspect suggesting a false flag that should be looked for soon after the attack is any possible connection the suspect or group of suspects may have had with intelligence agencies. A connection to any one of these organizations and institutions may go some length in explaining how the attack was coordinated, the motivation of the perpetrators, the actual involvement (or not) of the suspects, and who actually directed the operation. For instance, on 9/11, many of the alleged hijackers had previously had close contact with the FBI, CIA, and other high-level intelligence agencies (both home and abroad).[1] Likewise, the Tsarnaev brothers who have been accused of masterminding and carrying out the Boston Bombing had ties to the FBI before the attack.
In many instances, connections to certain military agencies and communities should serve as the same red flag as connections to intelligence agencies since these institutions have largely been blended together.
After fifteen years of a post-9/11 world, we have now entered a time where one does not hear of a terrorist attack and reasonably assume it to be legitimate until proven otherwise but, quite the opposite, would be justified in assuming that it is of the false flag variety unless proven legitimate. Because of the track record of Western governments, the odds are now greater that such incidents are entirely controlled by intelligence agencies or, at the very least, allowed to happen in order to continue to push the fear and panic needed to maintain a police state and constant culture of warfare. Still, there is not enough evidence to claim either way.
While we cannot definitively say that this attack was a false flag – Rahami had a history of disturbing and violent behavior – we also cannot rule out the possibility that it was a false flag. It is very possible that a disturbed individual simply lashed out at society in the most effective way he saw fit. As a result of the West’s open immigration policies, there have been a sizeable influx of opportunistic economic migrants who hold true to their fundamentalist religions and customs that put them at odds with civilization itself, much less Western civilization. Such policies are bound to produce organic acts of terror at some point, particularly taken in the context of the immense hatred the West has brought upon itself as the result of numerous immoral and illegal wars overseas. At the same time, given the fact that the FBI did indeed have information and connections to him, it is possible that he is yet another psychopathic pawn in a larger game.
At this point, we simply do not know enough about the events or the attacker to make claims either way. Regardless, we must acknowledge the prior connections to the FBI and add this important piece of information to the collection and continue to observe these events with skepticism and discernment.
