[NYPOST] Caliphornia, an impregnable bastion of the Democratic Party, authorities seized 92 pounds of drugs in a bust with sniffer dog assistance during a traffic stop Wednesday.The California Highway Patrol (CHP) — Valley Division posted images of the haul, which totaled 81 pounds of meth and 11 pounds of fentanyl tablets, police said.
CHP pulled over a 2021 Toyota Corolla for a speeding violation, but several "undisclosed factors" led the arresting officer to suspect the driver and a passenger were involved in some criminal activity, authorities said.
The officer used a sniffer dog, Apis, to check the car, finding positive signs of drug possession. A search of the vehicle led to the discovery and seizure of the massive drug haul.
Approximately 81 pounds of methamphetamine inside a large cardboard box inside the vehicle, along with 11 pounds of fentanyl tablets.
Both of the vehicle occupants were arrested in connection to the bust.
[FoxNews] Authorities in California released police body camera footage Friday showing an attempted homicide suspect firing on an officer before he was fatally shot.
Joshua James Gloria, 34, an Oakland resident, was killed March 24 after he opened fired on Fremont police officer Brian Burch after a short car chase, police said.
Burch, a six-year veteran of the department, was working traffic enforcement on a police motorcycle when he was alerted that a vehicle had activated a license plate reader camera nearby.
The vehicle was reported stolen and allegedly used in an armed robbery in San Francisco, police said. Burch found the car and followed it into a shopping center parking lot and ordered the driver to pull over.
The driver, identified as Gloria, took off and pulled over a short time later on the shoulder of State Route 84. He fled on foot and opened fire on Burch, prompting the officer to leave the bike and run down a nearby embankment.
As Gloria attempted to steal the police motorcycle, Burch fired his weapon. Gloria ditched the bike and ran toward his vehicle when he was struck by gunfire and died. The officer was not hit.
The San Jose Police Department said it had an arrest warrant for Gloria for attempted homicide and for being a felon in possession of a firearm. He was wanted for allegedly shooting someone multiple times at an illegal gambling hall.
Feral, definitely, but too old to be a yoot.
The victim survived, despite being hit in the back of the head while on the ground, police said.
[FoxNews] The officer doused with the liquid was doing fine, police said.
The NYPD told Fox News that officers in Brooklyn attempted to pull over a 2000 Lincoln Town Car being driven by a 44-year-old man just before 8 a.m. When the driver is asked if he has his driver's license and vehicle registration, the suspect says no, according to police body camera footage.
The driver then attempts to get out of the car.
Today, a vehicle stop for running a red light proved once again that no traffic enforcement is “routine.” When approached, the driver doused a cop with a chemical before fleeing, tossing a Molotov cocktail — and finally being arrested.

Saturday's incident comes as shootings have increased 77 percent over the past year as of March, according to the New York Police Department.
The NYPD reported 99 shooting incidents in March 2021, compared to 56 a year ago, representing an increase of nearly 77 percent, even as police drastically stepped up their efforts to arrest suspects on weapons charges.
There were also 492 gun arrests citywide last month, which is an increase of nearly 67 percent compared to March 2020.
Overall crime went up 2.4 percent according to the March statistics, compared with the same time last year.
That increase is driven by a 36 percent jump in murders and a 35 percent increase in auto thefts.

Find "sources" who will aver that the white shooter is inspired by Trump, engaged in "insurrection," a "supremacist." Disparage the shooter everywhere possible to suggest base, inhuman, contemptible or simply distasteful traits. If all fails, note that a veteran who served her country in multiple overseas combat tours failed to advance .
I remember hearing as a child that when every police vehicle in the country was equipped with a well functioning radio there would be no more high speed chases. Even as a kid it seemed to me almost immediately that doesn't take idiocy into account.
[KhaamaPress] Afghanistan Special Forces have stormed a Taliban ...mindless ferocity in a turban... prison in the Western Nimroz province of Afghanistan early morning on Saturday, Bilal Sarwary, an aware journalist tweeted.
Afghan Special Forces ...established in 2007 with the intent of taking one conventional infantry kandak (battalion) from each of the regional ANA corps, giving them special training and equipment, and reorganizing based on the U.S. Army Rangers.

Taliban has not yet commented about this operation.
[ToloNews] Three coppers were killed in a car kaboom that targeted an outpost in the Zinda Jan district in the western province of Herat ...a venerable old Persian-speaking city in western Afghanistan, populated mostly by Tadjiks, which is why it's not as blood-soaked as areas controlled by Pashtuns... province on Friday evening, the provincial governor Sayed Waheed Qatali said on Saturday.
The explosion that happened in the Bazarak area in the Zindajan district was followed by Taliban ...Arabic for students... attacks on the district from three directions, the governor said, adding that the festivities continued for few hours.

[Garowe] At least two people, including a top national army commander, were killed when a roadside kaboom targeted a military vehicle outside Bal'ad, Middle Shabelle region, an official said on Saturday.
The attack occurred near Gololey on the outskirts of Bal'ad, an agricultural town 40 kilometers (24 miles) from the capital, Mogadishu.
Police officer Abdi Rage told Anadolu Agency that the military was carrying Yasin Abdi Tohow, a top military commander in Middle Shabelle, when it was targeted by the blast that killed him and one of his bodyguards. Several others were also injured.
Hirshabelle regional State President Ali Gudlawe Hussein confirmed the death of Tohow and offered condolences to his family.
Somali-based al-Qaeda affiliated group al-Shabaab ...... the personification of Somali state failure... grabbed credit for the attack and said it killed the commander and maimed more than five other soldiers.
[LIBYAREVIEW] On Thursday, the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights (SOHR) reported that some Ottoman Turkish-backed fighters in Libya are paying bribes to doctors in order to falsify medical reports enabling them to return to Syria.
SOHR added that some fighters used this method because they assumed groups of fighters managed to return home by employing this method in the past.
However, it was a brave man who first ate an oyster... only a few fighters have returned using this method and this only occurred on an individual basis. Meanwhile, ...back at the alley, Bugs Moroni was holding Slats from behind while his brother Greasy Thumb was pounding his face into paste ... the return of mercenaries is still suspended despite agreements, appeals and calls to ensure their return.
Last week, SOHR revealed that The Sick Man of Europe Turkey ...the only place on the face of the earth that misses the Ottoman Empire... sent a new group of around 380 Syrian mercenaries to Libya. It added that the group was transported to Turkey first, after which they were sent to Libya.
Earlier, SOHR reported that Turkey transferred more than 18,000 mercenaries from Syria to western Libya, among them former fighters of the 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) and al-Qaeda.

[AllAfrica] Terrorist raids have destroyed 104 schools in the northern Mozambican province of Cabo Delgado, almost 12 per cent of the 900 schools in the province, according to the Provincial Directorate of Education.
The directorate said that 168,639 pupils have been displaced by the terrorists, known locally as "Al-Shabaab ...... al-Qaeda's tentacle in East Africa... ", and who boast affiliation to the self-styled "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.... ". Also among those displaced from their homes are 1,623 teachers from various levels of education, at least seven of whom are known to have bit the dust during the attacks.
Education Directorate representative Manuel Bacar, speaking on Thursday during a webinar on "Implications of the Armed Attacks for Education in Cabo Delgado", said that Mocimboa da Praia, Palma, Quissanga and Muidumbe are the districts most affected by attacks against schools.
Bacar added that a further 194 schools in Cabo Delgado have not been able to start the 2021 school year, because of the lack of security in those parts of the province.
Nonetheless he expressed confidence in the efforts made by the defence and security forces in the fight against terrorism, which had made it possible to rebuild 149 temporary classrooms, and to distribute learning kits to the displaced pupils.
"We are pleased because we are seeing an attempt to return to normality", said Bacar. "Although challenges remain, education in Cabo Delgado is functioning. The government is doing all it can, together with its partners, to make more classrooms available".
The safest areas, he added, are the scenic provincial capital, Pemba, and Chiure and Montepuez districts. Hence most of the displaced pupils are in those areas, where they are able to attend classes free of any kind of threat.
The province's education plans for this year, he added, include building at least 2,000 new classrooms, and hiring 591 new teachers.
Meanwhile, ...back at the pie fight, Bella grabbed the cocoanut cream... frightened families are continuing to flee from Palma district and head for Pemba. Another ship full of these internally displaced people arrived in Pemba on Wednesday night. According to the independent television station STV, the authorities refused, quite illegally, to allow journalists to photograph the arrival of the displaced, and did not even say how many people were on board the ship.
Some of the displaced told STV that hundreds of people remain in Quitunda, about 15 kilometres from Palma town, hopeful that another ship will arrive and take them to Pemba.
A 15 year old girl called Faiza Kibuana told news hounds "A lot of people want to leave Palma and they are concentrated in Quitunda. When a boat arrives people fight to get a place on board".
She said there are now serious food shortages in Quitunda "and what's worse, the hospital isn't open and people are dying of disease".
[AlAhram] Five Nigerian soldiers were killed, four injured and dozens missing when IS-aligned jihadists attacked a military base in northeast Nigeria ... a particularly crimson stretch of Islam's bloody border... 's Borno state, two military officers told AFP Saturday.
Fighters from the 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.... West Africa Province (ISWAP) on Friday dislodged troops from a base in Kamuya village, 35 kilometres (22 miles) from regional district Biu after a shootout.
"The murderous Moslems killed five soldiers and injured four others in the attack on the Kamuya base," a military officer told AFP.
The bandidos bad boys sacked the base, forcing troops to withdraw in disarray, said a second military officer, who gave the same toll.
"So far 41 troops have returned while 58 are still missing and are presumed to have escaped the attack," said the second military officer.
Search and rescue operation was ongoing to "locate the missing soldiers", the officer added.
Kamuya is the home village of Nigeria's former army chief Lieutenant-General Tukur Buratai which has been repeatedly targeted by jihadists, prompting the setting up of a base to end the attacks.
ISWAP has focused on targeting military installations and troops since it split from mainstream Boko Haram ... not to be confused with Procol Harum, Harum Scarum, possibly to be confused with Helter Skelter. The Nigerian version of al-Qaeda and the Taliban rolled together and flavored with a smigeon of distinctly Subsaharan ignorance and brutality... in 2016 and rose to become a dominant group.
More than 20 people were killed following days of attacks on the town of Damasak this week where the Death Eaters burnt offices of international aid agencies and several homes.
The attacks have forced 65,000 residents to flee into neighbouring Niger, according to the UN.
The 12-year jihadist conflict has killed 36,000 people and displaced around two million from their homes in Nigeria's northeast.
The violence has spread to neighbouring Niger, Chad and Cameroon ...a long, narrow country that fills the space between Nigeria and Chad on the northeast, CAR to the southeast. Prior to incursions by Boko Haram nothing ever happened there... , prompting a regional military coalition to fight the bad boys.
[ZeroHedge] California Rep. Maxine Waters (D-CA) flew to Minnesota this weekend, where she joined protesters in Brooklyn Center past curfew and urged them to 'get more confrontational' just one day after peaceful demonstrations devolved into violence.
"I am not happy that we have talked about police reform for so long," she continued, adding "We're looking for a guilty verdict" in regards to former police officer Derek Chauvin, who is on trial for the death of George Floyd, a black man who died while in police custody last year. "And we’re looking to see if all of the talk that took place and has been taking place after they saw what happened to George Floyd, if nothing does not happen, then we know that we’ve got to not only stay in the street, but we’ve got to fight for justice."
"If we don't," Waters added, "we cannot go away."
"We gotta stay on the street" Waters was recorded saying, according to the Daily Mail. Continues @ link.

[Newsweek] An Oregon man was arrested Thursday after he fired a shotgun round above the heads of "defund the police" protesters outside the Salem Police station, where officers were closely monitoring both sides of the confrontation.
Salem law enforcement officials say Larry McFarland, 75, drove his vehicle up to the sidewalk outside the local police station Thursday around 9 p.m., where about 20 "defund the police" protesters had gathered. Cell phone video from the incident showed McFarland questioning what the protesters were doing before he fired a shotgun round into the air and warned them he'll "kill" anybody who disobeys his orders.
But officers watching the "police abolishment" protest from afar witnessed the confrontation and immediately sought to disarm McFarland, of Keizer, Oregon.
Larry just found out that the cops are just mercs in the urban environment who follow the orders of their masters. When enough Larrys figure out what has happen, they'll realize that when the cops act like that, the cops are indeed part of the problem - disarming the citizens of their political unit. Now the local Sheriffs who are usually elected, are a different matter.

Friday marked the sixth night of protests in Brooklyn Center over the shooting death of Daunte Wright
Protesters gathered again outside the police department, which was fenced off, before clashes began
In Chicago, thousands of people marched during the day before isolated crashes happened at night, the second day of protests following the release of a video showing the shooting death of Adam Toledo, 13
There were also clashes between protesters and the police near Barclays Center in Brooklyn
Nationwide protests continued throughout the country following the high-profile police shootings
Tell you what if the Cop is conducting him/her self in a lawful manner:
Made disobeying a Lawful order resisting arrest and mandatory 3 to 11 month sentence and community street level services.
Made Assaulting (1st to 3rd degree) a cop a mandatory 3, 5 & 10 year hard labor sentences.
Made shooting at a Cop a mandatory 20 year sentence with hard labor .
Made shooting at and wounding a Cop Attempted Murder with a mandatory Life sentence sentence, restricted prison privileges and NO parole.
Make killing a cop 1st DEGREE MURDER allowing for an accelerated court Appeals Process, held in isolation 22hrs / 7 days a week and the sentence to be carried out in 4-5 years or freed.
Allow Cops to sue Criminals for personal damages, injuries and losses. If a minor, then the Family will be held $$$ responsible until the minor becomes 18 and takes on the debt. Make it a debt that cannot be wiped with a Bankruptcy.
See how quickly these Thug on COP crimes start to decline.
[OneIndia] The National Investigation Agency has filed a chargesheet against 7 narco smugglers in a case that arose from Jammu and Kashmir ...a disputed territory lying between India and Pakistain. After partition, the Paks grabbed half of it and call it Azad (Free) Kashmir. The remainder they refer to as "Indian Occupied Kashmir". They have fought four wars with India over it, the score currently 4-0 in New Delhi's favor. After 72 years of this nonsense, India cut the Gordian knot in 2019, removing the area's special status, breaking off Ladakh as a separate state, and allowing people from other areas to settle (or in the case of the Pandits, to resettle) there.... The seven narco smugglers are associated with the Babbar Khalsa International.
BKI is the oldest Sikh independence group (Khalistanis), so they’ve failed to achieve their objective longer than any of the others. They date back to the early 1980s, which has branches in in the Sikh diaspora in North America, Britain, and Western Europe. Pakistan’s ISI provides training camps for the Khalistanis at Kot Lakhpat, Chakwal, Gujranwala, Mianwali, Peshawar, Attock, Shahidan Da Banga and Gulbarg in Lahore. BKI also has connections to ISI tool Lashkar-e-Taiba and Karachi-based Indian gangster Dawood Ibrahim, whose Mumbai organization fences BKI’s thievings back home...
During a search on September 20 2020 at the International Border near RS Pura, Jammu heroin weighing 61 kilograms, opium of 1.2 kilograms along with 2 pistols, 3 magazines and 100 live rounds were recovered.
Investigation in the case has revealed that the seven chargesheeted accused in this case were part of a Narco-terrorism module of terror outfit Babbar Khalsa International (BKI).
The prime objective of this module was to raise funds for BKI through proceeds of narcotics. Each member of this module had unique role and responsibility in execution of this conspiracy.
The modus operandi involved smuggling of narcotics and arms/ammunition across the International Border in Jammu region and further supply and sale of the same in the state of Punjab. The proceeds of narcotics so generated were to be used for funding terrorist activities of BKI.
The arms so smuggled were to be used by members of BKI for violent mostly peaceful terrorist acts. After the arrest of the above mentioned accused, further searches were conducted which had led to recovery of drug proceeds of Rs 9,06,300, more arms & ammunitions and other incriminating materials.
[DAWN] The police along with officials from law enforcement agencies on Thursday continued taking action against Tehrik-e-Labbaik Pakistain (TLP) and rounded up more than 50 of its members in the district, a police front man said.
Chief of Pakistain Youth Parliament Shaheer Sialvi, who was held during a raid at his house and booked under terrorism charges, is one of them.
In a statement, City Police Officer (CPO) Mohammad Ahsan Younas said police are fully prepared to maintain law and order in the district. He said no one would be allowed to cause anarchy and challenge the writ of state while all steps are being taken to ensure safety of citizens.
Earlier, Mr Younas along with SSP Investigation Mohammad Faisal Kamran, SSP Operations Shoaib Mehmood and other divisional SPs paid a visit to various parts of the city to review security arrangements and deployment of personnel.
Mr Younas appreciated the efforts of coppers on security duty in the city.
Later on, he along with other officials had Iftaar in Liaquat Bagh.
Meanwhile, ...back at the chili cook-off, Chuck and Manuel's rivalry was entering a new and more dangerous phase... scores of rangers have also been deputed in many areas of the city to maintain law and order.

[SHAFAQ] A source in Nineveh Operations Command stated, on Saturday, that two booby-trapped vehicles were found under the rubble in the old city of djinn-infested Mosul ... the home of a particularly ferocious and hairy djinn... The source told Shafaq News Agency that the Popular Mobilization Forces (PMF) found booby-trapped car and bulldozer under the rubble in the Sarjakhana area of the old city of Mosul, indicating that the PMF engineering team is dismantling them.
The vehicles are from ISIS remnants.
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... a source in Maysan Governorate police informed Shafaq News Agency that an bomb blew up in Awasha area in the center of the city of Amara, resulting in material damage.
[BenarNews] Philippine troops have killed an Egyptian murderous Moslem and two Filipino members of the bully boyAbu Sayyaf ...also known as al-Harakat al-Islamiyya, an Islamist terror group based in Jolo, Basilan and Zamboanga. Since its inception in the early 1990s, the group has carried out bombings, kidnappings, murders, head choppings, and extortion in their uniquely Islamic attempt to set up an independent Moslem province in the Philippines. Abu Sayyaf forces probably number less than 300 cadres. The group is closely allied with remnants of Indonesia's Jemaah Islamiya and has loose ties with MILF and MNLF who sometimes provide cannon fodder... in a clash on the southern island of Jolo, the military said Saturday.
Troops from the 4th Light Reaction Company encountered an undetermined number of Abu Sayyaf Group members in the village of Igasan, Patikul late on Friday, triggering a shootout that led to casualties in the rebel side, said Lt. Gen. Corleto Vinluan, commander of Western Mindanao Command (Westmincom).

[ENGLISH.AAWSAT] Iran ...a theocratic Shiite state divided among the Medes, the Persians, and the (Arab) Elamites. Formerly a fairly civilized nation ruled by a Shah, it became a victim of Islamic revolution in 1979. The nation is today noted for spontaneously taking over other countries' embassies, maintaining whorehouses run by clergymen, involvement in international drug trafficking, and financing sock puppet militias to extend the regime's influence. The word Iran is a cognate form of Aryan. The abbreviation IRGC is the same idea as Stürmabteilung (or SA). The term Supreme Guide is a the modern version form of either Duce or Führer or maybe both. They hate JewsZionists Jews. Their economy is based on the production of oil and vitriol... named a suspect Saturday in the attack on its Natanz nuclear facility that damaged centrifuges there, saying he had fled the country before the sabotage happened.
State television named the suspect as 43-year-old Reza Karimi. It showed a passport-style photograph of a man it identified as Karimi, saying he was born in the nearby city of Kashan, Iran.
The report did not elaborate how Karimi would have gotten access to one of the most secure facilities in the Islamic Theocratic Republic, The News Agency that Dare Not be Named reported.
The report also aired what appeared to be an Interpol "red notice" seeking his arrest. The arrest notice was not immediately accessible on Interpol's public-facing database.
Interpol, based in Lyon, La Belle France, did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
The TV report said "necessary actions" are underway to bring him back to Iran through legal channels, without elaborating.
The report also showed centrifuges in a hall, as well as what appeared to be caution tape up at the Natanz facility.
The attack Sunday, suspected to have been carried out by Israel, has inflamed a shadow war between the two nations.
Iran has begun enriching a small amount of uranium up to 60% purity — its highest level ever — in response amid talks in Vienna aimed at saving its tattered nuclear deal with world powers.
[IsraelTimes] Iranian state TV airs footage from what it says are regular operations at the Natanz nuclear facility, following an April 11 explosion that is said to have caused considerable damage to the plant, including its various kinds of uranium-enriching centrifuges.
The TV spot airs a short interview with an unnamed worker at the site who says that the staff is working around the clock to resume uranium enrichment.
"What you hear is the noise of the machines working normally. We are fixing all the centrifuges that have been affected, and with the help of our dedicated, excellent staff, we are working to fix all the damaged parts," says the worker, according to a translation by Israel’s Channel 12 which also aired the clip.

Channel 13 says it is unclear if the footage is from today.
Israeli and American media have reported that a 150-kilogram bomb early Sunday morning took out Natanz’s main and backup power supplies and caused damage setting back the enrichment process by months.
A senior Iranian official said Tuesday that the blast destroyed or damaged thousands of centrifuges used to enrich uranium. Alireza Zakani, the hard-line head of the Iranian parliament’s research center, referred to "several thousand centrifuges damaged and destroyed" in a state TV interview. However, a lie repeated often enough remains a lie... no other official has offered that figure and no images of the aftermath have been released.
[SHAFAQ] The Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) arrested an ISIS terrorist earlier today, Saturday, in al-Shuhail village in Deir ezzor countryside in northeastern Syria.
SDF said in a blurb, "On April 16, our forces carried out, in cooperation with the Forces of the Global Coalition, an operation against a bombing cell affiliated with the terrorist organization of ISIS in al-Shuhail village in Deir ezzor eastern countryside."
SDF reportedly" arrested a terrorist and seized documents and material used in explosives."
In the same context, Anti-terrorism units of the SDF managed to uncover an active cell of ISIS turbans in al- Raqqa region consisting of ten Death Eaters.
The group was "planning to target gatherings of citizens and civil institutions of the self-administration in the cities of al-Raqqa and al-Tabqa and a number of other areas during the month of Ramadan, in addition to carrying out subversive operations targeting the security and stability of the region and thwarting the efforts of the internal security forces during the holy month."
"After intelligence monitoring of the movements of the cell members, the Anti-terrorism units raided a number of lairs in which the terrorist elements were hiding."
"The cell headed by an ISIS commander and included, in addition to elements to carry out terrorist operations, an explosive expert and another for communications, as the Anti-terrorism units confiscated weapons and documents in addition to the communication devices that were in the cell’s possession," SDF statement said.
[SHAFAQ] A woman and a man were dead shot by unknown assailants in al-Shuhail village in Deir ezzor countryside in northeastern Syria.
A source told Shafaq News Agency that two unidentified button men on a cycle of violence sprayed a car with machine-gun fire, killing the man and the woman inside the car immediately before heading to an unknown destination.
"Fingers are pointing toward ISIS cells. It usually conducts its operations this way."
Since the beginning of the current year, the ISIS organization has intensified its attacks against tribal dignitaries advocating the Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF), SDF fighters, and public servants in the Autonomous Administration.
