Fake white hate-crime: Surveillance camera catches black man in ‘white racist’ arson of family market

On April 7, 2017, someone set fire to Central Market on Albemarle in Charlotte, North Carolina, and left a note, signed “White America,” threatening the store owner, a refugee originally from Bhutan.

But surveillance video shows that the “white racist” Trump-supporter turns out to be a black man.

Alex Shabad reports for WCNC.com, April 7, 2017, that the letter references President Trump, then goes on to threaten the store owner, Kamal Dhimal, with torture if he doesn’t “go back where he came from”:

“Business owner

Our newly elected president Donald Trump is our nation builder for white America. You all know that, we want our country back on the right track. We need to get rid of Muslims, Indians and all immigrants. Specially (sic), we don’t want business run by refugees and immigrant any more (sic).

We are ready to wake up some of our great state including North Carolina and we will take care of the country. Immigrants and refugee are taking our job, doing our business and leaving us standard (sic). So, you are not allowed to do business any more (sic).

We know you are one and many of other immigrant doing business here. This is our warning. Leave the business and go back where you came from.

If you don’t follow this warning then we are not responsible for the torture starting now.

God Bless America… … … …White America”

Although the arsonist’s letter was signed “White America,” police say the suspect is a black man who threw a brick through Central Market’s door, entered the store, and set the door on fire, inflicting more than $1,000 in damages.

CMPD says surveillance video of the incident shows a black male suspect, who is approximately 5-foot-8, around 200 pounds, has a short afro and goatee, and was wearing a gray hoodie under a black coat with light jeans and black shoes.

Meanwhile, Dhimal says he doesn’t know if he’ll reopen the store: “I’m here in this country to feel more secure, more safe, and more security, but yesterday I feel the same thing I have in my back home. I’m very sorry to say that.”

The FBI is also getting involved in the investigation. Detectives ask anyone with additional information about the incident to call Crime Stoppers at 704-334-1600.

Former US intelligence officials: Trump lied about Assad’s chemical attack on Idlib province

“President Trump should make his case in front of the American people and allow their elected representatives to debate the benefits and risks of further Middle East intervention to our national security interests.” Sen. Mike Lee (R-Utah)

What we know to be FACTS:

  1. On 4 April 2017, the town of Khan Shaykhun in Syria’s Idlib province, was struck by a heavy airstrike followed by massive civilian chemical (sarin nerve gas) poisoning, including children.
  2. At the time of the attack the town was under the control of Tahrir al-Sham, formerly known as the al-Nusra Front — a Sunni Islamist terrorist organization fighting against Syrian Government forces in the Syrian Civil War, with the aim of establishing an Islamist state in the country.
  3. President Donald Trump, the U.S. Pentagon, and the UK (in the person of Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson) blamed the attack on the forces of Syrian President Bashar Assad. The Russian and Syrian governments said it was caused by the Syrian Air Force’s destruction of a nearby rebel-operated chemical weapons warehouse.
  4. In the early morning hours of April 7, 2017, the Trump administration fired 59 Tomahawk cruise missiles from a U.S. destroyer in the Mediterranean Sea, at Shayrat Air Base in Syria,said to be the location from where the Assad government allegedly had launched the April 4 chemical attack.

A couple of points to keep in mind:

  • At the time of the alleged chemical attack, things were going well for the Assad government in its efforts to combat the Syrian “rebels,” among whom is the al-Nusra Front. In other words, there was no reason for the Assad government to launch a chemical attack against the “rebels”.
  • From 2013, when Obama and Congress had agitated to attack the Syrian government because of the latter’s alleged deployment of chemical weapons, Assad knows well the U.S. would go berserk if he were to launch a chemical attack.

Two former U.S. intelligence officials are speaking out about what they know and believe about the April 4 “chemical attack” on the town in Idlib. They are:

  1. Walter Patrick “Pat” Lang, Jr., 76, a former U.S. Army officer who left the army with the rank of Colonel, then worked as a high-level civilian intelligence analyst in the Defense Intelligence Agency (DIA) at the equivalent rank of a lieutenant general, specializing in the Middle East and South Asia. Lang is now a commentator on the Middle East, private intelligence analyst, and author.
  2. Ray McGovern, a retired CIA analyst from the administration of John Kennedy to that of George H.W. Bush, and prepared the President’s Daily Brief for Nixon, Ford, and Reagan. He is a member of the Steering Group of Veteran Intelligence Professionals for Sanity (VIPS).

Both Lang and McGovern maintain that:

  • On April 4, the Assad government undertook a conventional (not chemical) air strike at a rebel-held weapons/explosives depot in Idlib.
  • The Assad government had notified the Trump administration of its intended strike.
  • Unbeknown to the Assad government, the weapons depot contained deadly chemicals — of organic phosphates and chlorine (not sarin).
  • The explosion of the depot released the chemicals into the air, which was carried by a strong wind to a nearby town, Khan Shaykhun, and killed civilians.

Below are the respective analyses of Lang and McGovern, originally published on Intel Today, a website that is less than a year old, founded last July. My guess is Intel Today is a forum of retired and/or active “white hats” U.S. intelligence officials.

Analysis by former DIA Intelligence Analyst Col. Patrick Lang

Donald Trump’s decision to launch cruise missile strikes on a Syrian Air Force Base was based on a lie. In the coming days the American people will learn that the Intelligence Community knew that Syria did not drop a military chemical weapon on innocent civilians in Idlib. Here is what happened.

  1. The Russians briefed the United States on the proposed target. This is a process that started more than two months ago. There is a dedicated phone line that is being used to coordinate and deconflict (i.e., prevent US and Russian air assets from shooting at each other) the upcoming operation.
  2. The United States was fully briefed on the fact that there was a target in Idlib that the Russians believed was a weapons/explosives depot for Islamic rebels.
  3. The Syrian Air Force hit the target with conventional weapons. All involved expected to see a massive secondary explosion. That did not happen. Instead, smoke, chemical smoke, began billowing from the site. It turns out that the Islamic rebels used that site to store chemicals, not sarin, that were deadly. The chemicals included organic phosphates and chlorine and they followed the wind and killed civilians.
  4. There was a strong wind blowing that day and the cloud was driven to a nearby village and caused casualties.
  5. We know it was not sarin. How? Very simple. The so-called “first responders” handled the victims without gloves. If this had been sarin they would have died. Sarin on the skin will kill you. How do I know? I went through “Live Agent” training at Fort McClellan in Alabama.

There are members of the U.S. military who were aware this strike would occur and it was recorded. There is a film record. At least the Defense Intelligence Agency knows that this was not a chemical weapon attack. In fact, Syrian military chemical weapons were destroyed with the help of Russia.

This is Gulf of Tonkin 2. How ironic. Donald Trump correctly castigated George W. Bush for launching an unprovoked, unjustified attack on Iraq in 2003. Now we have President Donald Trump doing the same damn thing. Worse in fact. Because the intelligence community had information showing that there was no chemical weapon launched by the Syrian Air Force.

Here’s the good news. The Russians and Syrians were informed, or at least were aware, that the attack was coming. They were able to remove a large number of their assets. The base the United States hit was something of a backwater. Donald Trump gets to pretend that he is a tough guy. He is not. He is a fool.

This attack was violation of international law. Donald Trump authorized an unjustified attack on a sovereign country. What is even more disturbing is that people like Secretary of Defense Jim Mattis, CIA Director Mike Pompeo and NSA Director General McMaster went along with this charade. Front line troops know the truth. These facts will eventually come out. Donald Trump will most likely not finish his term as President. He will be impeached, I believe, once Congress is presented with irrefutable proof that he ignored and rejected intelligence that did not support the myth that Syria attacked with chemical weapons.

It should also alarm American taxpayers that we launched $100 million dollars [Note: the cost is more likely $114.5 million, based on the per-unit cost of Tomahawk cruise missile] of missiles to blow up sand and camel shit. The Russians were aware that a strike was coming. I’m hoping that they and the Syrians withdrew their forces and aircraft from the base. Whatever hope I had that Donald Trump would be a new kind of President, that hope is extinguished. He is a child and a moron. He committed an act of war without justification. But the fault is not his alone. Those who sit atop the NSC, the DOD, the CIA, the Department of State should have resigned in protest. They did not. They are complicit in a war crime.

Analysis by former CIA agent Ray McGovern

Syrian aircraft ‘knew’ there was a weapons cache in this particular rebel-held area.  That was correct, and the Syrian aircraft bombed it.

What seems not to have been known was the existence nearby of a large storage facility for chemicals.  That too was damaged, releasing a cloud of chemicals that the wind blew south and poisoned those villagers.

Here is what most likely happened:

The Russians briefed the United States on the proposed target. This is a process that started more than two months ago. There is a dedicated phone line that is being used to coordinate and deconflict (i.e., prevent US and Russian air assets from shooting at each other) the upcoming operation.

The United States was fully briefed on the fact that there was a target in Idlib that the Russians believes was a weapons and explosives depot for Islamic rebels.

The Syrian Air Force hit the target with conventional weapons. All involved expected to see a massive secondary explosion. That did not happen. Instead, smoke, chemical smoke, began billowing from the site. It turns out that the Islamic rebels used that site to store chemicals, not sarin, that were deadly. The chemicals included organic phosphates and chlorine and they followed the wind and killed civilians.

There was a strong wind blowing that day and the cloud was driven to a nearby village and caused casualties.

We know it was not sarin. How? Very simple. The so-called “first responders” handled the victims without gloves. If this had been sarin they would have died. Sarin on the skin will kill you.

3 reasons why the latest Syrian chemical attack attributed to Assad is a false flag

In the early morning hours of April 7, 2017, the Trump administration fired 59 Tomahawk cruise missiles from a U.S. destroyer in the Mediterranean Sea, at Shayrat Air Base in Syria which is alleged to be the location from where the Assad government, on April 4, had launched a chemical attack of sarin nerve gas which killed many civilians, including women and children, in the rebel-held town of Khan Shaykhun in Idlib province.

The source of information on the April 4 chemical attack is the White Helmets, a supposedly impartial, Syrian-created NGO. In an op/ed in The Guardian on April 4, 2017, the head of the White Helmets, Raed Al Saleh points the finger at the Assad government as the instigator of the chemical attack:

[T]his morning we have witnessed a suspected chemical weapon attack – one of the most horrifying in six years of this bloody conflict. At least 60 civilians were gassed to death and more than 300 are still being treated; many are in a critical condition. Members of my team sought to wash the deadly chemical from the eyes of the affected children. Soon afterwards our centre in the town was destroyed, along with all of our life-saving equipment. Then a local hospital where victims were being treated was also bombed….

The central architects of the destruction, the Assad regime, continue their bombing campaign against Syrian civilians….

I am therefore horrified at reports in the news, and from personal briefings I have received, that certain leading European politicians want to consider a deal with the Assad regime. It is beyond belief that the perpetrators of most of the violence could effectively be rewarded, and even propped up, for their crimes.

There are several things we should consider before we climb aboard Trump’s war wagon as too many conservatives are doing, as seen in a Grassfire Nation poll, wherein a vast majority (who undoubtedly had opposed Obama wanting to attack Syria in 2013) agree with Trump’s decision to strike Syria.

(1) Timing

Daniel McAdams is the Executive Director of the Ron Paul Institute for Peace and Prosperity. He is a former foreign affairs advisor to US Congressman Ron Paul (R-Texas) from 2001 until Dr. Paul’s retirement at the end of 2012, and a former journalist (1993-1999) based in Budapest, Hungary, including as editorial page editor of the Budapest Sun.

Beginning at the 3:58 mark of the video below, McAdams said:

“The fact is . . . we’re . . . literally on the eve of peace talks, Assad has the upper hand in these talks, he’s almost, essentially with his Russian and Iranian allies, wiped al-Qaeda and ISIS out of the country. So on the verge of this great victory that they’ve suffered for all these years, he decides ‘I think I’m gonna go out and kill some people with gas’. You know, if you just wanted to kill people, there are a heck of a lot better ways of doing it than using gas, which just guarantees that the entire world community, including your allies, are going to turn against you. He would have to be the most insane leader probably in the history of the world….”

(2) White Helmets is A suspect Source

The source of report about the recent gas attack incident is the White Helmets, aka Syrian Civil Defense, which claims to be an impartial NGO (non-government organization). But as the video below explains, the White Helmets:

  • were not created by Syrians, but by a former British Army officer named James le Mesurier.
  • operate solely only in terrorist-held territories in Syria — Aleppo and Idlib.
  • call for a no-fly zone in Syria which would only benefit those who want regime change.
  • are a propaganda tool for the U.S. and the UK to justify military action against the Assad government.
  • are armed and partial, contrary to their self-description.
  • were seen celebrating with terrorists holding the ISIS flag.
  • are funded with $23 million “in assistance” from the U.S., contrary to the White Helmets’ self-description as “fiercely independent and accepts no money from governments, corporations or anyone directly involved in the Syrian conflict.”

In other words, the White Helmets are neither Syrian, nor impartial, nor independent, but are “al Qaeda with a facelift”.

Here’s a video of Syrian civilians saying the White Helmets never help civilians but instead help terrorists:

(3) White Helmets’ Gas Attack Video

In the video below, Swedish Professor and Doctors for Human Rights (SWEDHR) points out that a video of an alleged chlorine gas attack on Syrian civilians which the White Helmets provided the UN Security Council on March 16, 2015, and which was then broadcast by CNN on April 20, 2015, is not believable because:

  • They faked an adrenalin injection to the heart of an infant: the “doctor” who administered the injection never actually injected anything.
  • As with the sarin gas attack on April 4, 2017, rescue workers in 2015 also did not wear gloves although, like sarin gas, chlorine gas is toxic to touch. From Wikipedia: “Chlorine is a toxic gas that attacks the respiratory system, eyes, and skin.”

SWEDHR publishes The Indicter magazine, where you’ll find a longer, more detailed article, “Analysis of evidence contradicts allegations on Syrian gas attacks“.

Fake News: Duct tape antifa

Antifa, the abbreviation of antifascist, is the word that radical anti-Trumpers call themselves.

Antifas are the masked punks, dressed in all black, who committed violence in inauguration demonstrations in Washington, D.C., and on the U.C. Berkeley campus on the night of February 1, 2017.

Although they are the ones who attack Trump supporters, antifas have started a new meme in social media, portraying themselves as victims of duct taping.

The fake victimization began with a tweet from Beverly Hills Antifa @BevHillsAntifa on March 30, 2017, claiming that a fellow antifa in Laguna Beach was duct taped to a stop sign by “fascists”.

The only problem is the alleged duct-taped antifa is actually a man in Houston, Texas, who was duct-taped to a sign-post because he lost a bet to his friends. As reported by CBS News on March 30, 2017, “the duct-taped man, who was identified as 17-year-old Miguel Chavez,” told police “he was taped to the pole after losing a bet on Tuesday’s Rockets vs. Warriors game.”

The next day, March 31, 2017, Fifth Avenue Antifa @FifthAveAntiFa continued the fake duct-tape victimization with a tweet of another alleged antifa duct-taped by “Nazis” to a concrete trash bin:

On April 1, 2017, responding to tweeter @llivill1 who observed that the pic looks fake, Fifth Avenue Antifa insisted:

It’s not fake. Trump people literally taped him there after saying racist stuff at us.

And . . .

But we never tried true communism. This time it could work.

Trump supporters aren’t buying duct tape antifa. Here’s a sample of responses to Fifth Avenue Antifa’s tweet:

“OOH! What a cool performance art project! The dildo on his head really speaks to me!” -Artemis

“do people teach you in liberal school to call all of your enemies Nazis? Try a new argument” -Kenny Perrin

“Funny, nice try. All these pics u keep doing are transparent” -BrentD

“Nice fake propaganda.” -Squirrel_Hound 2.0

“Duct tape is more useful than I thought!” -Scott Miller

“hahahahahahaha the pussy hat resistance” -NYC 4 TRUMP

My favorite:

“ANTIFA sounds like the name of a laxative or an old-people nutrients drink.” -Bryan Black

That hasn’t stopped a dorky effete from Boston Antifa from believing their own lies. Here is his unintentionally funny advice to fellow antifa on how to avoid being duct-taped.

Transcript:

“Hello, it’s 727 with Boston Antifa. I’ve taken a little bit more time to look into the duct taping incidents that have been going on, and it is truly fucked up. We feel deeply bad for Antifa members who happen to be a victim to this. Now, things that can be done to prevent such an attack: We recommend some of the same types of defenses that we use against pepper spray, and things of that nature. So vegetable oil is something that I could recommend that you use. Does work for the skin when it comes to prevent the irritation of pepper spray. I believe that if you were to put a lot of this on parts of your clothing before you go out to a demonstration, then this could help prevent the adhesive [of duct tape] from sticking. Now, there are some other ways that you could easily stop this kind of attack, and I think maybe there are many other comrades who will chime in on this. Shaving your body hair would help, especially your arms and things of that nature. We have to do all we can because I’ve also heard some other reports that they’re going to start bringing high-powered magnets to attach to any private piercings that some of our comrades may have. This is all news to me, but is some scary stuff. So everybody, continue to be safe out there and if it be, fight back!”

Great.

We should expect oily, pierced, shaved-of-body-hair antifa commies at the next anti-Trump demonstration.

Crisis actors dressed up like witches put hex on President Trump in California park

Sandy Coronilla reports for ABC10 that on Saturday, April Fool’s Day, a group of “a dozen or so” self-described witches gathered at noon in Balboa Park, San Diego, to put a hex or curse on President Trump.

They call the event “Fire the Fool San Diego!”.

Dressed up like witches with green face paint, the participants raised brooms above their heads and danced around a cauldron. They also marched through the park, chanting “Trump is a fool, Trump is a clown, we are here to shut him down.” One participant held up a sign that read, “I hex DT to protect America”; another wore a red “Make America Native Again” hat.

Participant Mary Lou Finley said, presumably referring to Trump, “It’s incredible that anyone could be so stupid as to do so many things that are hurtful to the American people.”

Note: I found, on Spokeo, a Mary L. Finley who lives in San Diego. She is 72 years old.

The event was organized by Ground Zero Players. Participants were required to attend a rehearsal and “witch curtain call.”

Ground Zero Players is a street theater group, est. 1987, in San Diego.

Why would witches need to be “organized” by a street theater group, much less attend a rehearsal for a supposedly spontaneous hex-gathering?

I call this bunk. This was a FAKE news of a FAKE protest by FAKE witches.
