Pennsylvania cops shoot man dead for charging at officer with a huge blade
  • [Daily Mail, Where America Gets Its News] Ricardo Munoz, 27, was shot dead by an officer after he charged at him while brandishing a knife above his head

  • The officer was responding to a domestic disturbance call in Lancaster, Pennsylvania

  • Munoz's sister called police after he started acting aggressively toward his mother and tried to break into his sister's home

  • Bodycam footage shows him emerging from a house as an officer arrives on the scene. He then charged at the officer before he was shot dead

  • Yesterday's shooting sparked protests where dozens gathered outside the Lancaster Police headquarters and bashed in the windows of police cars

  • Munoz was awaiting trial for stabbing and seriously injuring four other people, including a 16-year-old boy, last year

  • Police responding to that incident found him outside a home, where he held a knife to his throat

  • He then jumped over a handrail and police used a stun gun on him before taking him into custody

#11  It was a solid square-up hit, pre-meditated, and with cameraman.

I wonder how much added audio there was; like a foley dropping a metal trash can lid. Older lady, though dazed, was still WTF?!

A practiced hit to a life-critical target should be assault with a deadly weapon, or even attempted premeditated murder. Especially unprovoked. It isn't just the hit, it is the fall. Lady was lucky, I guess if that is the right word, the car caught the fall instead of the curb.

An uncontrolled fall from a standing position such as feinting, or heat exhaustion, causes a whip effect upon the skull, further exasperated by a hard surface causes real damage in and of itself - never mind from a physical blow. Its why official boxing/sparring arenas floor has a bounce or cushion to mitigate impact.

DHS leaked email confirms Antifa is an organized group
[THEPOSTMILLENNIAL] An internal email from the Department of Homeland Security leaked to CBS Catherine Herridge late Monday detailing that the violence in Portland was not "opportunistic," but rather "organized"—confirming long-suspected details about the Antifa
...the armed wing of the Democratic Party...
movement.The email explains that Antifa is organized and runs contrary to reports in the mainstream media that Antifa was not responsible for anti-police violence, but an impromptu movement spurred on by anti-fascist
...anybody you disagree with, damn them...
sentiments held by most of the American public.

A recent article in the Washington Post by Mark Bray, author of Antifa: Anti-Fascist Handbook, attempted to dispel "myths" about Antifa, claims that the group is not an organization, but rather a "tradition of krazed killer antifascism." The article disputed claims that Antifa "criminal masterminds violence at Black Lives Matter protests."

In printed email documents attained by Herridge, the DHS' Acting Under Secretary for Intelligence & Analysis Brian Murphy wrote to his colleagues on July 25 detailing his findings of Antifa in Portland.

Murphy urged for an immediate change of definitions for the violent mostly peaceful activity in Portland following a review of the individuals arrested by federal authorities, as well as intelligence surrounding their affiliations and activities.

"The individuals are violent mostly peacefully attacking the Federal facilities based on these ideologies," he said in regards to Antifa, which he classed as VAAI or "VIOLENT ANTIFA ANARCHISTS INSPIRED."

"We can't say any longer that this violent mostly peaceful situation is opportunistic," wrote Murphy. "Additionally, we have overwhelmingly intelligence regarding the ideologies driving individuals towards violence and why the violence has continued."

"A core set of Threat actors are organized, show up night after night, share common TTPs and drawing on like minded individuals to their cause."

Third round in 11 days: Israeli jets strike Iranian positions in Deir_Ezzor, killing ten
SOHR activists have reported hearing six loud explosions in Al-Bokamal city in Deir Ezzor countryside. According to SOHR sources, the explosions caused by airstrikes by unknown jets but believed to be Israeli, which targeted Iranian-backed militias’ positions in “Al-Thallathat” area in the south of Al-Bokamal city in the eastern countryside of Deir Ezzor, near the Syria-Iraq border.

The airstrikes resulted in the death of ten Iranian-backed militiamen (eight Iraqis and two Syrians), while ambulances were seen rushing from Al-Bokamal city to the targeted sites. The airstrikes also destroyed ammunition depots and vehicles of the Iranian-backed militias.
Oooooohhhh ... secondaries!
On September 3, reliable SOHR sources confirmed that airstrikes, executed at dawn by unidentified jets but believed to be Israeli, pounded positions of Iranian forces and Iranian-backed militias in Al-Thallathat area in Al-Bokamal desert in the eastern countryside of Deir Ezzor. SOHR activists documented the killing of nine Iranian-backed militiamen, in addition to injuries to others due to this attack.

SOHR sources had reported that unidentified jets, believed to be Israeli, struck at dawn a position of the Iraqi Hezbollah about five km away from Qallat Al-Rahbah on the outskirts of Al-Mayadeen city in the eastern countryside of Deir Ezzor. The attack left seven militiamen of the Iraqi Hezbollah dead. The death toll was expected to rise because of the serious injuries of some casualties, in addition to unconfirmed reports about more casualties.

#1  The Hezbollah was an Iranian creation beholding to the Ayatollah Khomeini himself. It was designed to spread his revolution to Shiites outside of Iran and administered by Iran's youthful Pasdaran - Revolutionary Guards -- who supported Khomeini without stint. The Pasdaran emerged in the Bekaa Valley of Lebanon in June 1982 where its Hamza and Ansar divisions were seen working with the Syrian military in building an "army" peopled by indigenous Lebanese zealots. That project was directed from Iran by the Hojatolislam Ali Akbar Hashemi Rafsanjani. Nearly forty years later the Hamza is still around in various forms in various places.

UN peacekeepers rescue 36 migrants outside Lebanese waters
[Al Ahram] The UN peacekeeping force in Leb
...an Iranian colony situated on the eastern Mediterranean, conveniently adjacent to Israel. Formerly inhabited by hardy Phoenecian traders, its official language is now Arabic, with the usual unpleasant side effects. The Leb civil war, between 1975 and 1990, lasted a little over 145 years and produced 120,000 fatalities. The average length of a ceasefire was measured in seconds. The Lebs maintain a precarious sectarian balance among Shiites, Sunnis, and about a dozeen flavors of Christians. It is the home of Hezbollah, which periodically starts a war with the Zionist Entity, gets Beirut pounded to rubble, and then declares victory and has a parade. The Lebs have the curious habit of periodically murdering their heads of state or prime ministers...
said it rescued on Monday 36 people onboard a ship carrying migrants colonists outside Lebanon's territorial waters.
The force, known as UNIFIL, said there were 37 migrants colonists on the ship but that one had died by the time the peacekeepers rescued the migrants colonists. The statement did not give a cause of death.It did not say where the ship was heading. Some Lebanese have been trying to flee the tiny Mediterranean nation lately, after Lebanon has been shaken by multiple crises, including its worst economic and financial crisis in decades.

Tens of thousands have lost jobs over the past year while the local currency, the Lebanese pound, lost nearly 80% of its value, plunging half the country's population into poverty.

The survivors were being provided immediate medical assistance on board the UNIFIL Maritime Task Force vessel before being transferred to the Lebanese authorities, the UN force said. It added that UNIFIL's ship was en route toward the Port of Beirut.

Last week, authorities in Cyprus said they were alarmed over the arrival of four boats carrying Syrian and Lebanese migrants colonists in waters off its coastline. European Union

member Cyprus and Lebanon have an agreement to prevent migrants colonists from reaching the island nation.

Lebanon, a country of 5 million people, is also home to nearly 1 million Syrian refugees, as well as tens of thousands of Paleostinians.

Over the past years, hundreds of thousands of Syrian refugees have fled their country's civil war, seeking sanctuary in EU countries. Most of the Syrians have made it to Europa

Lebanese naval forces have in the past prevented ships carrying migrants colonists from leaving Lebanon but the force has been overwhelmed since the Aug. 4 explosion at Beirut's port that killed at least 190 and injured thousands. Much of the port was destroyed.
