Stockholm truck attack kills 5, a suspect in custody

An arrest was made Friday the 7th in an attack involving a stolen truck that barreled into pedestrians on the busiest street in the center of Stockholm, leaving at least five people dead, Swedish police said.

A dozen people were injured in what appeared to be the latest use of a vehicle as a weapon of terror in Europe.
The Swedish Security Service said the attack happened just before 3 p.m. local time. People were seen fleeing the area in panic.
A beer truck was hijacked as it made a delivery nearby, according to the company that owned it. Eyewitnesses reported it being driven at speed along Drottninggatan (Queen Street) before it crashed into the front of a department store.
Police attend to people wounded in the Stockholm attack.
Security services had said a manhunt was underway for the truck driver. Police at a news conference said later that the man who was arrested matched the description of a man police considered a person of interest. It’s not clear whether the man in custody was the suspected driver.
Earlier, Anders Thornberg, director general of the Swedish Security Service, said a “person of interest” was being investigated and authorities released a photo of him.
Police also confirmed they were talking to two individuals about the attack, but stressed they were not suspects.
Parliament and the Stockholm subway were placed in lockdown. All train services in and out of Stockholm Central Station were halted and people were evacuated, the state railway company said.

“Sweden has been attacked,” Prime Minister Stefan Lofven told reporters “Everything indicates this is a terror attack.”
Lofven said the government was doing everything possible to help the security services. “We are thinking about the victims — their families and friends — and those who were injured,” he said.

The Prime Minister was returning to the capital from the west of the country, his spokesman Erik Nises told CNN.
King Carl XVI Gustaf announced he had cut short his state visit to Brazil to return home immediately in the aftermath of the attack.IMG_2732


Annevi Petersson, who was in the fitting room of the department store at the time of the attack, has been talking about what she witnessed.
“I heard the noise, I heard the screams, I saw the people,” she told the BBC. “As I walked out, just outside the store there was a dead dog, the owner screaming. There was a lady lying with a severed foot.
“There was blood everywhere. There were bodies on the ground everywhere, and a sense of panic, people standing by their loved ones, but also people running away.
It got very quiet. There was the noise, then everything got quiet, and then people started screaming and crying, obviously people severely wounded, then people running away.”


Swedish police have confirmed they are interviewing two people in relation to the truck attack.
“I can confirm that we have taken in two people for questioning, but that does not necessarily mean that they are suspects,” police spokesman Lars Bystrom said.
“We want to talk to everybody who knows anything about this and sometimes it’s better to talk at the police station than [the] place of [the] event.”

Record Debt Dangling Over A Cliff: “We all Know How This Party is Going to End”

Global Economic Crisis

At some point, sooner or later, someone is going to have to pay the debts, but everyone will scramble to avoid holding the bag. But in the end, the chaos and panic may leave many with nothing at all.

An end to the massive, unlimited money printing at the Federal Reserve, and the management of risks in the financial markets is making for a difficult situation to reconcile. A credit crunch era is upon us, a contracting of the money supply. Rising costs of living and a dry-up of worthwhile opportunities for advancement have put the American people in a holding pattern of stagnation and decline.

Everything has been written off, and a controlled demolition is ultimately the best possible outcome, as dark as it is.

Reclaim Our Republic

 15 Mar 2017 by Dr Susan Berry

An ACLU attorney says the second-trimester abortion procedure known as Dilation & Evacuation (D&E), or “dismemberment” abortion, is not “inhumane.”

Maryland House Delegate Sid Saab (R) addressed Rachelle Yeung, public policy counsel for ACLU of Maryland, during a hearing for Maryland HB 1167. The bill, titled the “Unborn Child Protection from Dismemberment Abortion Act,” would prohibit “dismemberment” abortions performed primarily during the second trimester of pregnancy.

The dialogue is as follows:

Del. Sid Saab (SS) to ACLU attorney Rachelle Yeung (RY): You really think this is unconstitutional?

RY: Yes, sir, I wouldn’t have said it if I didn’t believe that.

SS: Do you think it’s inhumane?

RY: I’m testifying on the legal aspects of this bill.

SS: Right, but do you think it’s inhumane?

RY: No.

SS: You don’t?

RY: No, sir.
