Editor’s Comment: The world returned to terror and a state of war yesterday, with this high profile, apparent terror attack in Berlin, with the assassination of the Russian diplomat, and the internal coup against the looming Trump presidency.
With no apparent motive, other than to drag the world back into war and divisions, these events are shaping up to make sure 2017 will be as chaotic as possible. It is the establishment line that has lost power and public support – evident by the backlash of voters in the 2016 election. It is this establishment, quietly taking power in Trump administration as well, that is seeking to reinvigorate its claim to power, its base justifications for endless war.
Were these attacks known about in advance? Were they orchestrated by someone other than who it appears on the surface? What will it mean for the tangled web that is foreign policy? None of these answers are immediately apparent, but if the past is any guide, people should be very vigilant about watching for the hidden hand that rules by fear and the catalyst of death and destruction.
US Warned Citizens of Possible Terror Attacks on Markets Like Berlin’s, Just 4 Weeks Ago
by Claire Bernish
Berlin, Germany — Monday night, a tractor-trailer truck plowed into a bustling Christmas market in Berlin, Germany, killing at least nine people — possibly many more — and wounding scores of others.
UPDATE: Local police now confirm 12 people were killed and 48 others injured in the attack.
According to reports from local media, police believe the incident to be an attack, and are treating it as a terror incident.

“We can confirm nine fatalities & many injured. A lot of our colleagues are at #Breitscheidplatz to investigate the background,” the official police account tweeted.
Wir können 9 Tote & viele Verletzte bestätigen. Viele Kolleg. sind am #Breitscheidplatz im Einsatz um die Hintergründe zu ermitteln.

“It looked like [it was done] on purpose,” a police officer who witnessed the incident told Berliner Zeitung.
“Lorry just ploughed through Christmas market in #berlin. There is no road nearby. People crushed. I am safe. I am safe,” tweeted Emma Rushton with a picture from the chaotic scene. There is, indeed, a road nearby the market, so it is unclear what Rushton meant.

“We heard a loud bang,” Rushton told CNN. “We started to see the top of an articulated truck, a lorry … just crashing through the stalls, through people.”
She added, “There’s no way it was an accident.”

Another eyewitness described dozens of people unconscious on the ground.
“Local media reports suggested the vehicle ran into the market outside the landmark Kaiser Wilhelm memorial church on Monday evening. They said police at the scene had said initial indications pointed to an attack,” the Guardian reports.
A journalist from Berliner Morgenpost described the aftermath as a “gruesome scene.”
Reports indicated the driver took no care to avoid hitting people and traveled at a high rate of speed through the open-air holiday market.
Interestingly, the U.S. State Department issued a travel warning last month cautioning Americans in Europe about attending Christmas holiday events — including, specifically, markets like this one — stating:
“The Department of State alerts U.S. citizens to the heightened risk of terrorist attacks throughout Europe, particularly during the holiday season. U.S. citizens should exercise caution at holiday festivals, events, and outdoor markets. This Travel Alert expires on February 20, 2017.
“Credible information indicates the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL or Da’esh), al-Qa’ida, and their affiliates continue to plan terrorist attacks in Europe, with a focus on the upcoming holiday season and associated events. U.S. citizens should also be alert to the possibility that extremist sympathizers or self-radicalized extremists may conduct attacks during this period with little or no warning. Terrorists may employ a wide variety of tactics, using both conventional and non-conventional weapons and targeting both official and private interests.”
In fact, the State Department specifically mentioned terror attacks that had taken place in Germany and other European nations, warning additional attacks might still occur:
“While extremists have carried out attacks in Belgium, France, Germany, and Turkey in the past year, the Department remains concerned about the potential for attacks throughout Europe.”
Chaos unfolded after the truck drove headlong into the market around 8 p.m. — what would have been its busiest hour. According to Bild Berlin editor-in-chief Julian Reichelt, cited by Reuters, a massive security operation is currently underway, and “The scene certainly looks like a reminder of what we have seen in Nice.”
On Bastille Day in Nice, a truck driver drove through a massive crowd gathering for a parade, leaving at least 80 people dead and several hundred injured.
Police later detained the suspected driver of the truck nearby — and confirmed his putative accomplice, the passenger, died after being detained shortly after the vehicle crashed.
Police also asked people to stay away from the scene and not rush to conclusions until a thorough investigation concludes.

Hang Merkel. The blood is on her hands. Germany, rise up! Auslander raus!
This is all by design by the Illuminati. You see they placed Guilt on the Germany people for WW2over the years, and so Chairman Merkle is like an Obama apologist, tied to say oh we are not prejudice and like brown people too, and declared few years ago they will take in 800,000 Syrian refugees the first year, basically the majority Militant Aged Men from 18 to 35, like a Trojan Horse, and also to accept 500,000 more Syrian Refugees every year after the first year. Then when all these refugees get in the Country, they refuse to assimilate in their new White Man Christian Country, or accept Christian Celebrations, they attack them and kill German people because it hurts their feelings because they are Muslim.
Trump is 100% right, these illegal refugees are a Trojan Horse, infiltrate and destroy our country, just like the (((Illuninati Tribs))) has done here in America in every aspect of our traditional culture through manipulation. And the shill Obama letting our borders be overrun by illegals, and creating sanctuary cities.
This is a Global NWO Illuminati Program to destroy powerful countries from within, by destroying their cultures and traditions, and the Brown skin refugees are to steal jobs and income from Whitie!! Rape the white women, dilute the white race, destroy the economy and take down a country.
Germany’s Chairman Merkle is a EVIL SHILL, Just like Obama and Mooshell, as well as the Clintons. The German people are just suppose to just sit there and take it, until they are all dead. So 12 More Christian Germans Dead in Germany. This is the same as the attack in San Bernardino, CA attack. Or the Boston Marathon Bombing. Or the Russian Ambassador Assassination. All Illuminati Driven to create chaos, to build a New World Order.
The USA needs to pull out of the UN, And Tax payers stop funding this BS including NATO.
Question? How many Syrian Refugees has Israel Taken in, in the last few years? That right there, will tell you who’s behind this BS.
Put a Wolf in the sheeps pen and he will eat a sheep. That’s a no brainer!!!
This just go to show how the sheeple are/why they are so stupid. They have to be told this shit!!!!!
One possible good thing Germany is Doing right is putting the Smackdown on the Zionist lying scumbag Press.
Precedent Set — Germany to Fine Facebook $500K for Every ‘Fake News’ Post not Deleted
12-20-2016 • http://thefreethoughtproject.com
Germany — Germany now says if Facebook refuses to deal with “fake news” in a timely manner, it will fine the social media platform €500,000 (around $525,000) for each false or hate speech item it fails to remove within 24 hours.
So who in Germany gets to decide or check the checkers who check Fake News? And Who decides what is Hate News?
If news posted does not fit their Liberal Agenda, do they remove the news deemed as fake. This is all part of the subversion, scape goat, to distract you, while the thieves are busy with their agenda of hijacking an entire Industrialized Country and cutting off free speech.
Thanks Merkel …. Good luck with your reelection
Merkel will be lucky if she can sleep at night.
While children this Christmas will see toys and gifts in their dreams, Merkel will likely see children’s heads crushed by jihadist driven trucks.
Unless of course Merkel is a psychopath like Obama who experiences no remorse.
PTPO, I agree with your last sentence. Merkel is a psychopath like the chimp-in-chief who experiences no remorses.
Where is the backlash?
Germans need to rise up,get rid of Merkel and deal with the refugees.
Germans need to rise up. get rid of Merkel and deal with the refugees. Easy to say than done specially in a Jew owned/ ruled country.
Merkel has Jewish roots. The confirmation comes out of her own mouth. There was a video that during her trip to Israel she thanks the Knesset for allowing her to speak in her mother tongue which is not German but is the language in which Jews alone speak to one another.
These are the exact words which she uses: “Ich danke allen dass ich in meiner Muttersprache heute zu Ihnen sprechen darf.” It translates to: “I thank you all that I am allowed today to speak to you in my mothertongue.”
The entire World knows, which country needs to be destroyed and flattened into Glass. And then 85% of the World’s problems would disappear, Poof.. over night.
Finding any quality information about Merkel’s past is extremely difficult. I know; I have tried! It’s like Google has sanitised her or something.
Stolz, your homeland needs to dispose of Merkel and der juden. That will help solve a lot of problems for your people.
Coming to the USA soon.
If they tried that here about 20 people would whip out their guns and kill the bastard.
Not in uber-libtard cities like Seattle and San Fran. Very few city dwellers there carry anything but a bong or vibrator. How will they defend themselves? Wave their rainbow flag at the raghead?
EXCEPT in the US the truck will be loaded down with fertilizer nitrates – propane – cans of gasoline …
you forgot to ad, it also would be from the feds (CIA)!! and blamed unto others!!
With all that has happened in Germany as a result of her decisions, she shouldn’t run for reelection. If Deutsche Bank fails, she definitely shouldn’t. The right wing is rising in Germany.
Horrible, just like France. In my area, they arrested a 22 year old black male for shooting a handgun in front of Macy’s department store. The police captured the black dude, no one was hurt, and please come back and Christmas shop, all is well. Area – Rochester, N.Y.
How can a nation defend itself from terrorist attack? In war the primary goal is to destroy the enemy capacity to make war. Conventional wisdom then says you bomb their weapons / fuel manufacture and eventually you win. Unfortunately in unconventional war there are no indigenous factories to bomb (Vietnam) and hence supplies can’t be effectively cut. Terrorism compounds that due to its low intensity and impossibility of weapons removal as France showed with firearms and Germany with a vehicle. The one Achilles Heel for the terrorists is that they have no reach. They have no ICBM. They physically have to carry out their attack. The answer is you don’t let them in. Difficult? No its very easy, its difficulty lay with the will to do it. “Your not welcome here” “No I will not debate it nor give you an excuse”. “Its our country and we decide who comes in and its not you”.
*they do not have ICBM’s to the best of my knowledge …
Nomadic, Maybe not ICBM’s but when Hillary and Obama Invaded Libya, then Murdered Momar Gadhafi, they stole some 20,000 Surface to Air shoulder anti-aircraft missiles as well as Gadhafi’s Gold. They then transferred part or all of the shoulder missiles to ISIS in the Mideast. So I would not be flying into Europe or basically any place right now until ISIS is destroyed. And American Tax Payers, paid for all of this.
Isis in Libya: How Muhammar Gaddafi’s anti-aircraft missiles are falling into the jihadists’ hands
As the militants exploit the chaos in the country, there are fears they could target civilian airliners
According to both US and UN officials, Gaddafi accumulated an estimated 20,000 shoulder-held manpads during his four decades in power. Yet these officials stress that attrition, poor maintenance and the NATO bombing campaign during the 2011 revolution reduced that number by the time the dictator was overthrown.
No one has downed a passenger plane using stolen Libyan missiles, known in military parlance as “manpads” or man-portable air defense systems, yet the likelihood that Isis now has these weapons in Libya means the group or its affiliates could be well-equipped to strike at civilian aircraft in Africa or Europe, US officials say. “These missiles are very portable and easily smuggled,” says a senior State Department official who leads a special team given the job of securing the Libyan missiles. “All it takes is for one to get through.”

Kevin2, spot on. Any Muslim savages who come to me looking for trouble will find it. I have a one-way ticket to allah waiting for the savage.
Total false flag, a set up by the CIA, just like the shooting in Turkey, Wake up sheeple.
Obviously the plan was to frame the dead pollack in the truck.
Much too shoddy not the work of the agency
The original driver of the truck was Polish. The truck was hijacked my a muslim POS from Pakistan, the driver killed, and his body was left in the passenger side of the truck while the muzzie went to Berlin to strike his target. BTW, that driver is POLISH, NOT A POLLACK. I’ve known a few people from Poland and they’re good people. It’s definitely a terror attack.
The owner of the truck is saying the dead pollack inside was not his driver.
I picked referring to polish people as pollacks from all the polish people that I hung out with in Chicago.
*picked up on referring to
Yeah all the Pollocks in Franklin Park, Chicago.
BR, the Poles I was talking about came straight here from Soviet-occupied Poland during the 50s. They suffered terribly under the Soviets.
Zeus, Franklin Park, Il.is almost all Mexican now.
That’s what you get when you have open borders. It’s coming to America. Obama and anyone else allowing open borders should be lined up before a firing squad for treason for knowing this is what is going to happen to innocent people. It really appears that Obama is wanting this to happen to the people of the USA, no matter what their race or religious background. But what is the reason? Why do these global elitist want this to happen? What are they planning? What’s in it for them? Is it universal power over what’s left of the earth after a great manmade catastrophe? Why would any normal human being want to destroy the planet? They cannot be normal; the only answer is that they indeed are the evil children of Satan. People band together to destroy this evil. That’s the only chance we have. There’s more of us than them.
Merkel was an active East German communist before Germany was reunited. She is still both a communist and a globalist. Both communism and globalism are anti nation. No borders. Citizens of the world. It works real good if you are a third world peasant. You can go anywhere and live off of other peoples’ hard work and prosperity. It’s not so good for the people who’s country you invaded. That’s the plan. It was designed as a weapon against the prosperous West. It does two major things. It changes the demographics of the country and destroys the wealth of the country. That was the communist plan since at least 1930. Destabilize and destroy the West, them rebuild it in the image that Karl Marx envisioned. A living Hell. Genocide against Westerners. It would seem that the use of force to prevent genocide is not only acceptable, but urgently needed.
It’s not so good for the people’s country that you invaded?
How do you keep a straight face when you type that shit?
When your house gets carpet bombed , that isn’t exactly a walk in the park either. How would you react?
Refugees are and always have been a byproduct of war.
Terrorist? Kill them all.
Sheep herders not so much.
Who are the invaders ? People that incited the conflict or those fleeing from it?
But there’s always the problem of yesterday’s sheep herder becoming today’s terrorist after his house got carpet bombed isn’t there?
You don’t like refugees invading your country then stop invading theirs.
Yes I am aware that not all refugees are victims of war… but it sure as hell gives them a good excuse and plays into the commies hand like a straight flush.
Big Rig, I agree with you on that. We had no business in Syria. Read the “Rivkin Project”. The refugee crisis was part of the plan to destroy the West. The Globalists and Marxists are so confident that they actually publish their intent in policy papers. The war in Syria is about a natural gas pipeline into Europe from Saudi Arabia. The purpose of the pipeline is to cut off Russian sales to Europe. Cut off Russian sales, collapse Russian economy, get rid of Russian government, install globalist lackies, loot the country.
Kevin what about demoralizing your enemy. Like volley fire outside of accurate shooting ranges. The enemy doesn’t know when or where they will get hit.
For the first time in over one hundred years, a significant number of the world’s citizens are aware of the global conspiracy. Many of those so informed are actively or passively resisting the global agenda.
Soon globalists will abandon ship. Some die hard globalists will double down and bring more pressure to bare. The die hard globalists will in the end, give up , or die hard.
The antiChrist, antiChristian, showdown will crush the Satanist global “elite”, but not before they have one last rise, before the end; which will be for over one thousand years.
Read The Bible and the Apocalypse. We are well into the last days before the final curtain.
☺️ It is one hell of a ride.
You don’t kneed foreknowledge to issue a warning like that, just common sense.
Having attended a number of road accidents as an EMT, I am amazed at the fact that 12 people have died and some 48 injured, some of them doubtless against the front of the truck and others underneath the wheels, and yet not one speck of blood. It was very thoughtful of them. No torn clothing, no body parts no shoes or bags wedged against the wheels, almost as though it was staged.
I have carried wallets and IDs for 50 years without once leaving them behind. Never mind at a crime scene. I once had my brief case with my passport stolen in Brussels (thank you Roma) but other than that I have never lost my passport. Since 9/11, every terrorist in the world, seems to lose his passport or ID or drivers licence at the scene of the crime. Which, given the intelligence of the police, is very nice of them. The dumbos in blue wouldn’t know who to look for otherwise.
In my view thay are all called ‘Patsy’.
