Knifeman in Germany city of Lubeck in bus stabbing rampage

A MAN with a “smoldering backpack” has gone on a terrifying stabbing rampage on a bus in Germany, injuring at least 12 people.
A KNIFEMAN injured 12 people, two seriously, in a terrifying stabbing rampage on a bus in the German city of Lubeck.
The Sun reports that the suspect, who was allegedly wearing a “smouldering backpack”, was arrested after attacking several people with a kitchen knife.
He pulled a gun on the passengers on the bus to the coastal city of Travemunde but did not shoot anyone, a witness told Lubeck News.
The driver is reported to have slammed on the brakes and opened the doors so people could escape before he was attacked himself.
Sources told Lubeck News the suspect was an Iranian man in his mid-30s who is now in police custody.
Police confirmed several people were wounded in the onslaught but no deaths have been reported as yet.
Witness Lothar, 87, said: “The passengers jumped out of the bus screaming, it was terrible, and then the injured were taken away.”
Police cordoned off the area as they continued their investigation into the attack.

Even CNN Acknowledges Trump Tougher On Russia Than Obama, Outlines Why

From the Daily Caller:
CNN’s Poppy Harlow compared President Trump’s tough actions on Russia to those of the Obama administration’s during a Wednesday episode of “CNN Newsroom with Poppy Harlow.” 
“Would you concede that his administration’s actions against Russia — be it the sanctions, be it the selling of anti-tank missiles to Ukraine — are tough actions on Russia; arguably tougher actions on Russia, some would say, than the Obama administration’s?” Harlow asked Rep. Ted Deutch (D-Fla.). 
“We had to drag the White House kicking and screaming to impose sanctions on Russia … Of course, having a good relationship with a country is always in our interest.” 
Just minutes later, CNN ran a graphic that listed all of President Trump’s staunch actions taken against the Kremlin. 
And in every instance, Obama weakened the U.S. and made the decision that would be advantageous to Russia. 
In addition to rebuilding the U.S. military, the U.S. energy industry, pulling out of the Iran Deal (Russia’s ally), calling out Germany for their energy deals compromising NATO, etc ... Some of the actions taken by the Trump administration that are hostile towards Russia include arming Ukraine with anti-tank missiles, inducting 13 Russian nationals, expelling 60 Russian diplomats and sanctioning seven Russian oligarchs with ties to Putin. 
This praise comes as President Trump has faced widespread and bi-partisan backlash for his comments in Helsinki, Finland, as well as his attempted clarification yesterday.

LISA PAGE Confirms Strzok’s “There’s no Big There There” Text Message Referred to Trump-Russia Case

For any American who wants an answer sooner, there are just five words, among the thousands of suggestive texts Page and Strzok exchanged, that you should read. That passage was transmitted on May 19, 2017. 
“There’s no big there there,” Strzok texted. 
The date of the text long has intrigued investigators: It is two days after Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein named special counsel Robert Mueller to oversee an investigation into alleged collusion between Trump and the Russia campaign. 
Since the text was turned over to Congress, investigators wondered whether it referred to the evidence against the Trump campaign. 
This month, they finally got the chance to ask. Strzok declined to say — but Page, during a closed-door interview with lawmakers, confirmed in the most pained and contorted way that the message in fact referred to the quality of the Russia case, according to multiple eyewitnesses. 
The admission is deeply consequential. It means Rosenstein unleashed the most awesome powers of a special counsel to investigate an allegation that the key FBI officials, driving the investigation for 10 months beforehand, did not think was “there.” 
By the time of the text and Mueller’s appointment, the FBI’s best counterintelligence agents had had plenty of time to dig. They knowingly used a dossier funded by Hillary Clinton’s campaign — which contained uncorroborated allegations — to persuade the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) court to issue a warrant to monitor Trump campaign adviser Carter Page (no relation to Lisa Page). 
Lisa Page confirmed to lawmakers that the lead counter-intel agent on the Trump-Russia case, Peter Strzok, knew there was zero evidence of collusion between Trump’s camp and the Russians yet he pushed full steam ahead and unleashed the power of the premiere law enforcement agency onto a duly elected president anyway. 
John Solomon points out this text exchange between the lovebirds reveals they were attempting to rise through the ranks of the FBI: 
It turns out that what Strzok and Lisa Page were really doing that day was debating whether they should stay with the FBI and try to rise through the ranks to the level of an assistant director (AD) or join Mueller’s special counsel team. 
“Who gives a f*ck, one more AD like [redacted] or whoever?” Strzok wrote, weighing the merits of promotion, before apparently suggesting what would be a more attractive role: “An investigation leading to impeachment?”

It’s Undeniable: Trump Is Blessed With Really Stupid Enemies

From Kurt Schlichter:
Donald Trump goes to Europe, scandalizes the Euroweenies, libs, and cruise-shilling grifters of Never Trump, and comes back victorious. He’s about to get his second SCOTUS justice confirmed – all they have on Brett Kavanaugh is that he likes beer and is named “Brett.” 
In Congress, the Democrats decided to go all in on abolishing ICE because Americans love open borders and welcome MS-13 or something. In the Mueller farce, the Dems decided that the smart play was to publicly run interference for creepy weirdo Peter Strzok when he went on national TV doing his impression of Lotion Boy from Silence of the Lambs. Hey Pete, what do those Trump voters smell like? 
Smells like a red wave to me, you insipid weirdo. 
How did Trump luck out by getting such hopeless geebos for opponents? It can’t just be chance. At every turn, these dummies choose to lock themselves into the most implausible and indefensible positions imaginable, then push all their chips into the center of the table. 
It’s almost supernatural – maybe Trump won the intervention of some ancient demon by heading over to the offices of the Weekly Standard and snatching away one of its Never Trump scribblers to use as a virgin sacrifice. 
Look, I was not a Trump fan at the beginning – I was anti-Trump but never Never Trump, both because I was Never Hillary and because I wasn’t a Beltway squishboy who would take his white paper and go home when my guy Ted Cruz lost. I just had no idea what to make of Trump at first because he didn’t look like any mainstream Republican I had seen in the last few decades. 
But then, I soon realized that he didn’t look like any mainstream Republican I had seen in the last few decades because he wasn’t a hapless loser. He was the anti-Jeb!. I recount my conversion (hilariously, according to such blurb writers as Nick Searcy and David Limbaugh) from being anti-Trump to Trump-curious to pro-Trump in my upcoming book Militant Normals: How Regular Americans Are Rebelling Against the Elite to Reclaim Our Democracy, except I give a lot more detail and use a lot more swears in there. 
Suffice it to say that my conversion (and that of many others) was based on the undeniable fact that Trump kept his promises and sided with America in a way we haven’t seen from a Republican since Reagan was owning the libs back in the eighties. How did this guy win, and in doing so crush the avatar of the establishment, the smartest woman in the world, Felonia Milhous von Pantsuit? 
One of his secrets to success is really no secret at all. It is to embrace the obvious. Unlike our exhausted establishment, Trump rarely holds to bizarre, indefensible positions. You would think that would be an instinctive thing for politicians of both parties – “I know! I’ll adopt stands on issues that won’t make my constituents ask ‘What the hell is wrong with you?’” – but it isn’t. 
Instead, the establishment has somehow talked itself into taking positions that are so clearly ridiculous that Normals scratch their heads, baffled at what they are being told by their betters via the lapdog liberal media. 
Look at NATO. The entire foreign policy establishment is scandalized that Trump says he expects the Europeans to cover their fair share of the NATO nut. Now a normal American is going to think “Yeah, I think they ought to pay their share of their own defense. Sounds reasonable.” But the establishment collectively wets itself – “HE’S DESTROYING THIS ESSENTIAL ALLIANCE BY ASKING THE PEOPLE BENEFITING FROM IT MOST TO ACTUALLY PARTICIPATE IN IT!” 
And the Normals (many of whom, like me, actually served in NATO) wonder, “Well, if it’s so essential, why aren’t the allies eager to pay for it?” And the establishment responds, “SHUT UP, RUSSIAN STOOGE! ASKING THE ALLIES TO MAKE NATO MORE EFFECTIVE BY PAYING WHAT THEY PROMISED, WHICH IS STILL A FRACTION OF WHAT THE U.S. PAYS, IS PLAYING RIGHT INTO PUTIN’S HANDS. ALSO, THE EMOLUMENTS CLAUSE SOMEHOW.” 
Okay, as an expert on arguments, I must observe that this is a losing argument. Now, I’m not relying on my expertise gained from a quarter century of convincing juries to go my way to say that. I don’t need to. I’m relying on the fact I have actually met normal Americans. This is such a facially idiotic argument that only someone in the establishment could talk himself into believing it. 
Here’s a test. Leave DC or New York, drive a few hours out to America, find a random guy on the street and ask, “Hey, don’t you think it’s awful that Trump wants our allies to increase their contributions to their own defense to just about half of what the U.S. pays?” You can safely assume he’ll respond, “Wait, why only half?”

President Trump: Poltergeist

He's Here

From The Last English Prince:
To be perfectly clear: 
In folklore and parapsychology, a poltergeist is a type of ghost or spirit that is responsible for physical disturbances, such as loud noises and objects being moved or destroyed. 
They are purportedly capable of pinching, biting, hitting, and tripping people. 
The Helsinki Poltergeist: Body of Evidence Exhibit A: 
MSNBC hosts the best of the worst pundits. Jill Wine-Banks (former Watergate prosecutor) blathered that Trump’s performance in Helsinki “will live in infamy as much as the Pearl Harbor attack or Kristallnacht.” 
As a prior Navy LCDR I know of the sacrifice borne on the shoulders of our sailors, some of whose bone fragments rest within the waters of the harbor. Ms. Wine-Banks has spit upon their memory. 
Kristallnacht? From 9-10 November 1938 to May 2018 is quite a stretch of the imagination. 
Over in sleepy little Ohio, a county Republican GOP chairman proclaims he has had a nervous breakdown. Something in his mind just “snapped” when viewing the Helsinki press conference. “Akin to a hostage situation…. something just snapped.” 
Chris Gagin 
For some, Helsinki represents the “darkest moment in our history.” This is the new narrative. Watch for it. Yawn. 
President Trump is busy pinching mainstream media, whooping “Bite me!” to those who oppose his policies, hitting back (remember he stated he is a counter-puncher) and tripping up his detractors. 
The man is a Poltergeist. The objects being moved are domestic national objectives and products and foreign national objectives and products. 
He plays three-dimensional chess in his sleep. 
And there is a paranormal dimension to the man which only those who walk in the same shoes can fully understand. 
President Poltergeist.

Is This True?

I'm no historian. And I certainly don't have much knowledge about Africa. But this must be true, because if there were an impressive, enduring city in Africa, I'm quite sure I would have heard about it.

Wow! Look At What Papa John's CEO Is In Trouble About

From Yahoo:
John Schnatter, the founder of Papa John's International who resigned as chairman of its board of directors following reports of racist language he used in a conference call, is not going down without a fight. 
To that end, he sent a letter to the board this weekend outlining his case that he was wrongly asked to step down as chairman, that his comments had been "mischaracterized" in press reports, and that the whole affair began when he refused to work with Kanye West as a co-spokesman for the company. 
Schnatter resigned last week as chairman of Papa John's after Forbes said that he used the n-word and spoke in graphic terms about lynchings during a conference call in May. Papa John's also pulled Schnatter's image from its logo, TV ads and other marketing to distance itself from its founder. 
The comments came during what Schnatter called in his letter a "diversity media training" session with Laundry Service, a marketing agency. "During and after that meeting, the Laundry Service leadership strongly urged that our company retain Kayne West as my co-spokesman in the television spots and other promotions," Schnatter wrote.  
"I told them that would not work because he uses the ‘N’ word in his lyrics," Schnatter said in the letter, which was first reported by CNBC. "During this diversity media training, which covered a wide number of topics, I was asked whether I was racist. I, of course said no--which is a truthful statement as those of you who know me well will attest." 
After members of the ad agency asked Schnatter about controversial comments he made regarding NFL owners--which led to his stepping down as CEO of the company last year--Schnatter explained that he never uses the n-word. 
But in the process of defending himself, he apparently used that very word. 
"I then said something on the order of, Colonel Sanders used the word ‘N,’ (I actually used the word,) that I would never use that word and Papa John's doesn't use that word," Schnatter wrote. 
But, he claims, he never meant it as a racial epithet. Schnatter also claimed that Laundry Service asked Papa John's for $6 million in payment--more than four times what Schnatter says they were owed--because some of its staff had been offended by his comments. In the end, the company "gave into to this extortion attempt" and paid them $2.5 million.
