The guy in Germany killed a tractor-trailer driver, stole the rig, and then drove it into a Christmas crowd. A lone wolf's mini-9/11.

Meanwhile, some Pulse Nightclub families are bringing civil suits against social media for allowing the shooter to be radicalized.

I have no doubt that these attacks will increase here.

What kind of a salt gun is a tractor-trailer?

I hope he (Trump) follows through on promises of supporting local police and the rule of law. That should stop the vast majority of this silliness we've been seeing. Europe has open borders and socialist handouts. They empower immigrants to self govern and segregate. They fear standing firmly for grounded morals. Their weak leaders are being manipulated by, and laughed at by militant religious zealots who underand power and force.

@Mike1956 , the plural "you". As in CNN, NBC... I do think they use it as an insult to segregate all conservative thought into a category of "deplorables" that they can minimize and mock. Sen. Chuck Schumer was caught on audio instructing reporters that the proper talking point should be to refer to all Republicans as "extreme".

Allowing the shooter to be radicalized? What a crock! Next they will want censorship and book burning.

P.C.'ers. What a bunch of muppets.

They are already working on allowing Sharia law in these United States.

I'm not completely sure that I'm against the lawsuits against Facebook. I tried reporting an ISIS Facebook page a while back and Facebook responded by saying the page didn't violate their terms.

I would think the opposite would be true, the far left has invited them into our country, crippled our intelligence community, done everything they could to weaken our police response, And done everything possible to keep us from keeping track of those that pose the most obvious danger. and still we have done remarkably well at keeping these events small.
Just think what we can do with an administration that supports our safety! DR

Five stars, every word well said.

An administration that works together, all three sides of the isle supporting and protecting, the people they work for, together! The people who are truly American Citizens. We as American Citizens are not better than many immigrants but we are the only people who should have a say about what happens in America as Americans. We should not need to sacrifice or need to force our administration to do its job.

One of the goals of Islamic terrorism is to provoke direct, retaliatory responses from those being attacked. This will be much more easily accomplished with Trump than it was with Obama, or would have been with Hillary.
Presidential decisions are influenced by their advisors. Trump a has allegedly appointed a good staff, for the most part.

Thank God, he will see to it the proper Supreme Court Justices are placed in office, justices that actually believes in what this country was intended to be.

Just because Trump is not taking what the administration is offering him through various agencies does not mean he is not getting meaningful intelligence. There are private sector intelligence providers that have excellent, and in some cases better intelligence than the governments do.

One of the reasons my father retired from CIA when he did was the agency was becoming too politicized in his mind. Instead of providing unbiased assessments they were more frequently being asked for anything they had that supported a particular agenda. CIA works for the President, not the President-elect. What he is going to get from them is only what the White House wants him to get. While the basic facts may be present the question is how are they presented? Are they giving him the NRA presentation or the Katie Kouric presentation?

I expect there is going to be serious house cleaning at CIA and a number of other Executive Branch agencies. Until that happens I would not be surprised to see Trump getting at least some of his intelligence from sources he trusts more than the government.

The president has little to do with theses attacks at the tactical level. Strategically, he can set the stage for armed response. On the tactical level it is up to everyone to become a hard target. Why do you suppose Europe has so many of these attacks? Two things of interest, many Muslim "refugees" and no one can carry a gun. There have been a few incidents in my area with Somali's lately that I know of. We have a large Somali population, thanks to Lutheran social services and the diaspora from Minneapolis.

People need to be ready, I think this Christmas is going to be dangerous.

That was the crux of my OP. The second-largest population of Somalis in the US is right down the road from here.

Perhaps my choice of terms in mentioning the new president were poor. For the last eight years, terrorists have been faced with tough talk and angry facial expressions in response to their actions from a guy who was more worried about UBC's and AWB's. Now, we have a guy is going to be hitting back when they act. It wasn't a criticism of Trump at all, merely an observation based on history as I see it. No small coincidence, in my mind at least, that airliners were flown into buildings at the beginning of the Bush administration rather than on the tail end of Billary's reign.

The bottom line is that we need more big government to control stuff. We shouldn't have an internet where people can just say whatever they want without serious repercussions. We need more laws to prevent people from killing truckers and stealing their rigs. Maybe a 10 day waiting period on grand theft. We need big rig control - like being able to charge the truck manufacturers if their rigs are used by terrorists. We also need to look at our culture and see why it angers others. In the end, I'm sure it's all because of deplorable white males and our lack of sensitivity towards hostile cultures and the availability of big rigs. It all starts in the schools; we need to teach kids that our culture brought this on ourselves and that we're to blame for everything bad in the world.

all of this true, but consider who our incoming SECDEF is, as well our current one. Ash Carter has absolutely no idea what he is doing. He has no business being SECDEF. Mattis on the other hand, is known for his effectiveness as a military leader,(as opposed to being a political puppet like so many other flag officers), specifically fighting against Muslims. I think that could be a game changer for them. Maybe not initially, but eventually they will awaken a sleeping giant.

Laws don't promote morality. They are simply more necessary in its...absence. :biggrin2:

The very nature of our constitutional republic makes it easier for terror to operate within our system(s). Presumed innocence, free speech, religious tolerance, equal protection under the law, etc., etc. are ALL now tools for those dedicated to our destruction. The slippery slope upon which we must be MOST cautious it that we don't, under the guise of self-preservation, permanently lose the VERY IDEALS that make our country...WORTH saving!
