-Lurid Crime Tales-
Black Nationalist Attacked Random White Family w/Machete
[FRONTPAGEMAG] 1. Black Hebrew Israelites are not Jews, they are a racist and antisemitic hate group that preaches hatred of white people whose members carried out two recent murderous attacks against Jews in New York and New Jersey. They were also responsible for the ugly hate in the Covington incident even as the New York Times

...which still proudly displays Walter Duranty's Pulitzer prize...

and Washington Post defended the racist hate group and whitewashed their ugly track record.

2. These attacks were made possibly by pressure from Democrats, including Senator Cory Spartacus Booker
U.S. Senator-for-Life from Noo Joisey, formerly the mayor of Newark. Booker was a candidate for president in the 2020 Dem primary, running on a platform of Make America Newark. He once wrote an essay on how to grope babes and is noted for having an imaginary friend named T-Bone...
and Senator Kámala Harris
Former Oakland mayor Willie Brown's former mistress, now a senatrix from California former 2020 Dem presidential hopeful, and Joe Biden's wing nut...
not to have the FBI monitor "black identity bully boys".

3. The widespread backing for black nationalist groups by governments, corporations, and major non-profits has led to an upsurge in black nationalist activity beyond Black Lives Matter, including harassment of homeowners by Moorish Sovereign Citizens, and this latest Black Hebrew Israelite killing.

Edgecombe County deputies say hate crime charges are possible in a machete attack on Friday.

The attack happened Friday around 9 a.m. at a house on Carr Farm Road in Macclesfield.

According to deputies, the suspect, identified as Carlos Antonio Washington, was waiting behind the couple’s house and attacked the homeowner once the victim went inside the house.

Deputies said the homeowner fought the suspect off momentarily and deflected the machete. The homeowner’s wife came out with a gun and shot at Washington — ending the attack.

This attack might lead to hate crime charges because it was senseless and there are allegations that Washington targeted a random white family.

Deputies said federal hate crime charges are possible as the suspect is a Black Hebrew Israelite who attacked a white family at random. The Anti-Defamation League said there are many sects. Some are considered bully boy and are outspoken anti-Semites and racists. They’re unrelated to the Jewish faith.

Meanwhile Democrats and their media continue to resist monitoring black nationalist hate groups.

#2  The whole "rest in power" thing is creepy. The entire point of moving on to Heaven is that your struggle is over and you have no need for power other than eternal thankfulness for the Power of His grace. If you go to hell, OTOH, you will be finding out who wields the power , and buddy, it won't be you...

Iraq
Six ISIS militants killed in Makhmour
[RUDAW.NET] Six Islamic State
...formerly ISIS or ISIL, depending on your preference. Before that they were al-Qaeda in Iraq, as shaped by Abu Musab Zarqawi. They're really very devout, committing every atrocity they can find in the Koran and inventing a few more. They fling Allah around with every other sentence, but to hear western pols talk they're not really Moslems....
(ISIS) gunnies were killed on Monday in a joint operation between the Iraqi Counter-Terrorism Service (ICTS) and coalition forces in Makhmour, according to the ICTS.Counter-terror forces carried out the operation in a cave on Makhmour’s Mount Qarachogh, known to host ISIS remnants. Three gunnies were killed by direct fire, with another three killed in coalition Arclight airstrike
...KABOOM!...
s.

One ICTS member was "lightly maimed" in the operation, according to a statement, and is in good health.

Mount Qarachogh, located just 60 kilometers southwest of Erbil, has become a safe haven for ISIS fighters since the group’s territorial control of the Nineveh Plains came to an end in mid-2017.

Makhmour is part of a swathe of northern Iraqi territory whose control is disputed by the Kurdistan Regional Government (KRG) and the federal government. Kurdish and Iraqi forces both continue to carry out separate operations backed by the US-led Coalition to root out ISIS remnants.

Sirwan Barzani, Commander of the Peshmerga forces in Makhmour announced the death of 10 ISIS gunnies in a joint operation with the coalition last month.

ISIS sleeper cells have been able to carry out kidnappings, arson, and ambushes in the disputed territories across northern Iraq, despite being territorially defeated in Iraq in December 2017.

Opposition kidnapped leader of military police in Syria's Bab
[NPASYRIA]A Syrian opposition group kidnapped on Monday, a leader of the Syrian opposition military police in the city of Bab, eastern Aleppo, north Syria.

Militants of the Hamza Division, a Syrian opposition group, kidnapped Muhammad Ali Tawil, known as Abi Ibrahim, the former head of the military police in the city of Bab, a military source told North Press.

The kidnapping of Tawil took place near the village of Tal Battal after he attended a meeting of local tribal heads and sheikhs in Bab, the source added.

The opposition-held areas have been witnessing several detentions, kidnappings, and repetitive explosions, in light of the opposition groups’ inability to settle the area.

In November, a local source told North Press that gunnies killed Hussein Jabali, an official in the civil police of the Syrian opposition groups near a mosque in the city of Bab.

The Ottoman Turkish army and its backed armed opposition groups have been running the city of Bab, 30 km away from the southern Ottoman Turkish borders, since 2017.

Government forces shell a newly-formed Turkish post in Syria's Idlib
[NPASYRIA] The Syrian government forces targeted on Tuesday, an opposition site near a newly-formed Ottoman Turkish military post, in Idlib, northwestern Syria.

The Syrian government forces shelled during the morning hours, points in the town of Kansafra in Zawiya Mountain, south Idlib, a local source told North Press.

On Monday, the Ottoman Turkish troops established a new military post near Kansafra, 2 km from the frontlines with the government forces in the city of Kafr Nabl and the town of Hizareen.

The government shelling targeted regions and towns in the de-escalation zone in the southern countryside of Idlib, the source added.

The source stated that the government shelling caused major damage to the buildings near the military posts, while no casualties reported.

Meanwhile,
...back at the cheese factory, there was only one thought in the mouse's mind: I can do this! I can do this! Then the trap sprung...
the area has been witnessing military escalation and mutual shelling for a month coincided with Ottoman Turkish withdrawal from several military posts and establishing others, according to signed understandings with Russia.

The Russian-Ottoman Turkish signed agreement in 2017 and its additional protocol in March 2020 provide to halt the military actions in the governorate of Idlib and its surroundings.

Turkish military targets Syria's north Manbij with heavy weapons
[NPASYRIA]The Ottoman Turkish forces and the affiliated Syrian armed opposition groups bombed on Tuesday, the countryside of Manbij, northern Syria, causing material damage to civilian’s property.

The bombing took place from the Ottoman Turkish base in the village of Sheikh Nasser, where mortar shells and heavy artillery were used, which affected several villages in the western countryside of Manbij, local sources reported North Press.

The sources added that the bombing resulted in the destruction of the civilians’ property without reports about casualties.

The Media Center of the Manbij Military Council stated that the villages of al-Yalanli, Umm Adasah, and Jabalet al-Sayada were targeted by about 30 mortars and artillery shells.

The center pointed out that the area has been under intermittent bombardment since this evening.

Yesterday evening, the Ottoman Turkish forces and affiliated groups bombed the village of al-Hoshariya in the northeastern countryside of Manbij with several mortar shells.

The countryside of Manbij witnesses shelling by the Ottoman Turkish forces and the opposition groups every now and then, which often leads to deaths and injuries among civilians and causes loss of property.

#1  Often wondered why ANY military surface war ship would box themselves in to such a well defined hostel controlled area.

The narrow entrance and exit is only about
34.5 miles wide choke point at the Strait of Hormuz. Somewhat less at the Iranian controlled island of Qeshm. Opening ANY nations surface warship up to endless attack.

#3  Don't US Troop in Afghanistan exit flights into India and then conus? Suing the The Eastern side of Iran. The war ships are on the opposite side of Iran on the western border.

Yes IRAN wants us out of of Afghanistan as much as the voters want out of this now 19 year old useless but very costly Police action.

The only persons really wanting us to stay there are the ARMS Dealers and the Politicians getting big donation/speaking fees or their Families raking in $250K no-show consulting gigs.

But either way they Deep State will always find a new "Police action" to apply their bushiness.

Besides I don't see a IRAN starting a stink until they know if Acting President Harris takes the reins.
