Police have identified the suspect responsible for murdering at least eight people and injuring a dozen more after driving a rented pickup truck for 14 blocks along a bike path in Manhattan.
Originally from Uzbekistan, Sayfullo Saipov entered the United States in 2010. It is not clear if he is authorized to reside in the U.S.
EXTREME VETTING NOW: The radical Islamic terrorist's name is Sayfullo Saipov. He came to America in 2010 from Uzbekistan.#Manhattan pic.twitter.com/KsrT9Xui5x

The driver was shot in the abdomen by police after jumping out of the truck with what turned out to be a fake gun in each hand and shouting what witnesses said was “Allahu Akbar!,” Arabic for “God is great,” authorities said. He underwent surgery and was expected to survive.
Officials who were not authorized to discuss the investigation and spoke on condition of anonymity identified the attacker as 29-year-old Sayfullo Saipov and said he is from Uzbekistan and came to the U.S. in 2010. He has a Florida driver’s license but may have been staying in New Jersey, they said.
The driver barrelled along the bike path in a rented Home Depot truck for the equivalent of about 14 blocks, or around eight-tenths of a mile, before slamming into a small yellow school bus. The mayhem and the burst of police gunfire set off panic in the neighbourhood and left the pavement strewn with mangled bicycles and bodies that were soon covered with sheets.
Graphic images of the attack appeared on social media within minutes:

President Trump, tweeting before any additional details of the attack were made available, immediately identified the attack as an act of terror. Scores of responses to his Tweet either argued that Trump was responsible for it or denied any connection to radical Islamic terrorism despite the fact that witnesses reported hearing Saipov scream “Allahu Akbar” during the incident:
In NYC, looks like another attack by a very sick and deranged person. Law enforcement is following this closely. NOT IN THE U.S.A.!
— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) October 31, 2017
While many called for Trump to “own it” and “take responsibility,” none mentioned that Saipov entered the country under President Obama’s watch:
Actually, yes, in the USA. This happened ON YOUR WATCH. Own it. Take responsibility for it. Pro-tip: a ban isn't the right answer. #DBAD

Travel ban or a wall will not stop it though
— Skippy (@pipebrush) October 31, 2017
Trump will delete this tweet if we find out the attacker was white and not a Muslim.

The commie left so desperately wanted this to be a conservative white guy.
Terrorist in New York?
Are you sure he didn’t say, “Oh Vey!”
John Stiner: His trainers in Tel Aviv actually were screaming “Oh Vey!” indeed. Good comment.
“Allahu Akbar!” = “Praise Hillary!” She must be so proud of her goat screwing followers.
Apr 08, 2015 – U.S. cities ‘secretly selected’ for importing … into the United States at a rate of 100,000 per … of ‘unscreened’ Muslims flooding U.S.
“With Muslim immigrants streaming into the United States at a rate of 100,000 per year, some of the communities targeted for new arrivals are seeking information on their new neighbors, only to be frustrated by federal bureaucrats and their hired contractors.”
“Can the communities be assured that foreign nationals with ties to ISIS, al-Shabab and other Islamic terrorist groups won’t slip through the government’s porous screening process posing as “refugees”?”
Remaking Rutland with Refugees
“After being kept in the dark since their mayor’s unilateral decision to accept 100 Syrian and Iraqi refugees in October, Rutland citizens should investigate the threatening impact that refugee resettlement has on their own public security, economic stability and community health before it’s too late.”
There are (short term) incentives for refugee resettlement – “receive federal funding of nearly $2,000 per refugee sponsored in addition to federal grants of up to $2,200 per refugee sponsored.”
“One month after arrival, refugees are provided with taxpayer-funded services such as Medicaid, Supplemental Security Income, Social Security Disability Insurance, public housing assistance, child care, food stamps, and much more, costing billions of dollars a year.
However, after a couple of months, government funding runs out, and it becomes incumbent upon the community to take over and provide.”
Immigration to Swell U.S. Muslim Population
“According to U.S. Census Data, the United States admits roughly 100,000 Muslim immigrants legally each year…”
“Unlike illegal immigrants, legal immigrants (refugees) invited into the United States with green cards are granted automatic work permits, welfare access, and the ability to become voting citizens.”
“The importation of Middle Eastern immigrants through the nation’s refugee program has led to the development of pockets of radicalized communities throughout the United States.”
The government is “letting terrorists into the United States right through our front door…”
“He listed a number of terror attacks in which the attackers were immigrants voluntarily imported into the United States, including the Boston Marathon Bombing. None of these attacks would have occurred but for immigration sanctioned by the federal government.”
Refugee resettlement process leaves Syrian Christians in the cold
I wouldn’t laugh too hard. The Muslim population is set to exceed the Jewish population within this decade.
Wait a minute……finally a bad gunman who is left alive……hmmm? All to make us afraid of the boogie muslim bad guy. Notice how all the lone wolf white gunmen end up dead before they can tell their story. But a muslim is left alive so the neocon war hawks can get gitmo going again and get all the sheep to scream USA USA USA and support more war.
The message here is: You can’t kill ’em. Muslims are indestructible. The more radicalized, the more extremist, the more bullet proof. Muslims are like cockroaches. Except cockroaches can read.
He apparently entered the U.S. of A. through the Diversity Visa Program.
The Diversity Visa Program, a State Department program which offers a lottery for people from countries with few immigrants in America.
The DV program makes up to 50,000 immigrant visas available annually, “drawn from random selection among all entries to individuals who are from countries with low rates of immigration” to the U.S., according to the U.S. Citizen and Immigration Services website. Applicants must prove they have a clean criminal record, have a high school diploma or its equivalent, or have at least two years of work experience within the past five years in order to qualify.
The program originated as part of a bill introduced in 1990 by Sen. Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., then a member of the House. Schumer’s measure to make a set number of visas available to “diversity immigrants” from certain countries was absorbed into a larger House immigration bill, which was sponsored by Schumer and 31 others, including several Republicans.

Speaking of Chuck Schumer, Hillary, and Bill, here they are in their own words (please have a vomit bag handy, you may need it:
Chuck Schumer in his own words:
Wait, there’s more of Chuck U Schumer!
Well, here is video showing how Chuck and Hillary have flip flopped over the years:
And Bill Clinton:
anonymous, all they can do is dream about that one.
With a bump stock.
The US State Department facilitates the entry and resettlement of tens of thousands of such “vulnerable refugees” every year. Radical Islam is part of a “diverse array of backgrounds” so beloved by the globalists.
• Refugee Admissions: Resettlement is a key element of refugee protection and a solution to displacement when repatriation and local integration are not viable solutions. As the world’s largest resettlement country, the United States welcomes the most vulnerable refugees from a diverse array of backgrounds. Through domestic voluntary agency partners, these funds help refugees resettle in communities across the United States.
We need truck control, especially if this was a high capacity
automatic truck. Think of the children…These weapons of mass destruction must be taken off the streets.
I bet Home Depot looses their shirt over this. The suspect probably did not have a driver’s license.
I guarantee that someone will sue the rental company be it Home Depo or Lowes. Conversely if they refused to rent to an Islamic that would necessitate a law suit also likely coming from the same firm and same attorney.
“There was a small town in Montana that didn’t have enough work for a single attorney but had plenty of work for two”.
They were running from the sound of the truck engine. Imagine how bad it would have been if the truck had a muffler, something the EPA wants to make easier to get.
Children have been injured and I am fucking pissed. Send these rabids straight to Hell.
Yes, unlike Sandy Hoax, this time kids actually did get injured.
So yet another “mass” killing in NY using something other than a “gun”, but as usual I’m sure the fact there was one, that alone will be the main focus in Bloomberg communist country, and the ONLY thing considered the threat.
When will this BS stop, and quit hindering people from having the means of self protection with them at all times just as any badge carrying individual is.
When will the courts realize that defending ones self or someone else doesn’t mean the defender has to face charges or BS civil law suits either. This is the main reason many will NOT help in cases where needed.
When your being attacked and in danger for your life, does it really make a shit weather the person coming to your aid has a damned badge??, 0r would you rather have them standing there looking stupid fumbling around with their cellphone. If they even feel like wasting their time doing it for you.
We need to hang the ones responsible for this.
Terrorist came here in 2010 on a VISA.
Obuttho’s open borders and flying terrorists here
by the millions, only known to him what evil
these sick twisted Islamists Jihadi plans they have.
He is responsible for these murders.
Fox News said the killer had no skills. Was a Uber
Driver. Look at how many people trusted him
to drive them around NY. Gesssh he could
have been driving them to some desolate
dark alley and beheaded them. Enjoy your trip, my friends.
nYC truck attack: We are turning into another E.U. which has evolved into a third world sXXt hole because the Euro folks are self hating idiots who want to be conquered/killed off, and have allowed Muslims in for many decades to live off taxpaying people whom they hate and want to kill and enslave. Euro’s welcome enslavement and sharia law because you can’t fix stupid. If we keep letting this trash in here the Islamic goal is also to set up a caliphate and enslave the infidels. Are we that stupid too? Is America on it’s way to being trashed? Seems so.
Laura you are a moron. The majority of EU people do not want the invasuon of Muswims. Its their friggin puppet leaders who are sellouts to their nations, just like barak mohamid hussein obama was to America.
Or we can just blame you for this attack cause you live in the US and let this happen you self hating POS. What the hell were you thinking Laura when you let this nutjob in our country? You are an Idiot!!
????????? – Germany just re-elected a dumb bitch that is totally responsible for the Muslim invasion in the country ….
If the Germans didn’t agree with the current invasion policy – They’d had a election revolt and got their swamp drainer …
Same Same in France and across the Nordic North – EU cowards bending over for the Muslims and allowing their women to be savagely taken by the invading hoard ….
Crack summ: the male Euro’s are cowardly sissified she- males in dresses and lace undies. Why the H don’t they stand up for their country and women/girls then? Duh, Like an anti Jihad website posted recently, “you can’t fix stupid”. Now on Trump: Go to Lew Rockwell and read: Is Trump a Blessing? interesting info you need to see both sides, Whitehead is a genius runs the Rutherford Inst.
I’ve always maintained that the ‘war on terror’ is FALSE because the feds were still allowing muslims into this country after 9/11 and after DHS was created they allowed the terror groups to set up terror training camps in certain areas of the country. The local cops in those areas have been told ‘hands off’ by DHS. Not even state agencies or even FBI are allowed to go near them. The camps were set up under Bush jr. Obama allowed the Muslim Brotherhood to take over certain senior positions in DHS and they’re still there. If those two things don’t say how bogus DHS is then someone tell me what does.
Finally, a live one. Time to make a public example out of him. Flaying @ 5 p.m. MSM, all-channel coverage. Followed by home hints on how to deal with the next one.
No death for these prisoners. A open compound with some huts surrounded by a Hog run, stocked with mixed breed eastern European/ domestic wild boar that found in NC and Tenn.
The dept of Interior are familiar with these hogs.
Now let them try to get out of that one. A dog can be bribed, these hogs can’t.
Give us your mass murdering meanaces planted to prop up the war on terror. These American people need to be taught who is in charge.
The State Department is importing tens of thousands of such “vulnerable refugees.”
Young Otis: Definitely the Sate Dept. pushing a Marxist multicultural agenda to take down nations from within. Politician idiots just don’t get it and they are on the “chopping block” just like you and me, patriot bloggers, and many others when the hammer drops.
Censorship and Google
Google is now led by the disgusting leftist Eric Schmidt (who led Novell into the ground). My suggestion is that Google change its motto to “First, let’s only do evil… just hide it.” The below might be one of the most structurally important comments you’ll read this week, IMHO:
“Former Google “design ethicist,” Tristan Harris said, “If you control the menu, you control the choices.” And every time we do a Google search, a Google algorithm is controlling what’s on the first page that comes up and what’s on the 20th, which is online Siberia.” – Marvin Olasky
I am NO fan of Noam Chomsky (one of my grad degrees was in linguistics), but he did have this one right: “The smart way to keep people passive and obedient is to strictly limit the spectrum of acceptable opinion, but allow very lively debate within that spectrum….”
You’re a douche bag if you’re blaming President Trump, white America or anyone or anything else other than this hate-filled coward. He deserved to be gut shot but should have been left to die in agony.
Nobody was expecting his name to be Sidney Oglethorpe, Jr.
I’m surprised that pussy mayor and governor called this terrorism. Usually they dance around that wording. These Muslims have no business here period. End of god dam story. These idiot politicians want these bastards here should be hanged. People need to stay in there own corners of the world. Nothing about that culture is good for humanity or the planet. Where is the condemnation from the Muslim clerics? Cue the cricket sounds. If they didn’t have oil in the Middle East they’d be about as advanced as Africa and the chimps. I don’t know It would be a tossup?
Once the stupid masses realize that politicians are paid do nothing idiots and care nothing for the citizens, they will stay away from the polls permanently. Congress has long been bought to push the globalist agenda. Patriot activity post ww2 has been in vain, their efforts were/are futile, and we are still in the UN. People must focus on keeping family safe by staying out of crowds, avoiding activities that draw large groups of people and get busy by preparing and getting house in order, getting land away from town and realize this dysfunctional gov. is outa control and will go down hill no matter who people elect. Does everyone now on this blog get it??
You dont get it Laura. You think by Not voting will help. Donald J Trump is proof Hillary is Not President.
Your comments are close to usless drivel. Think before you type.
Crack summ: then you fix it, expert. Trump is controlled by the council of nine, he steps outa line who knows what they will do (rem. JFK?)politicians are bought and paid for like Sessions our former Sen. Now let’s all watch/see what Roy Moore does if he gets in taking Session Sen. seat. If you are so damn smart, fix the problem yourself, quit placing trust in idiot politicians, so your kids can have a safer country! Get your house in order and focus on personal stuff and quit slamming other posters, jerk.
Are you a DNC shill???? – sounds like it …
Educated voters stay away from the polls – allow the brainless DNC drones to flood the elections – elect the crooked twit bitch Hellery to continue the Obammy Muslim agenda …
No diff between GOP and dem all working for globalist agenda, lets see how far Trump gets (not far) when he is being sued for banning trans genders in military. Trump is rep., yes, but just see how he can be manipulated. Why the hell didn’t he pack his family up and lv the U.S.A. anyway?
Laura Ann, you make the best points. I don’t know what’s up with CSS but you hit the nail on the head.
B’heart: He is another loser troll agitator (like some on other blogs) who slams comments from others because of his low self esteem, know it all attitude, and wants to feel important.
Muslims should start wearing the I love new York t-shirts.
from the new York mayor to governor, it’s just digusting. they are saying that they are strong and resilient while waving more muslims in every day.
this attack was brought to new York by Obama and every liberal in new York, idiots.
actually the The Diversity Visa Program he came in on originated as part of a bill introduced in 1990 by Sen. Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., then a member of the House. Schumer’s measure to make a set number of visas available to “diversity immigrants” from certain countries was absorbed into a larger House immigration bill, which was sponsored by Schumer and 31 others, including several Republicans.
The House legislation passed in a bipartisan – but contested – vote, 231-192, while the Senate version containing the “diversity immigrants” part passed more easily, 89-8, and…
went on to be signed by then-President George H.W. Bush in 1990.
Is Las Vegas old news?
It should be THE news.
We already know about the NYC guy, but…
Who used Stephen Paddock. He was a patsy for some body.
Finding out who is the key.
Some thing nefarious where Paddock is concerned.
This is not just an act of terrorism, but an act of treason.
Stop all immigration into the United States. All of it. The legal stuff and the illegal crap.
Find the DHS agents that vetted this terrorist, strip them of their citizenship, and their assets, and drop them into Uzbekistan. See how long they last.
This radicalized Muslim extremist nonsense is completely preventable.
Look at him: he stinks of radical Islam. That anyone let him in the country is just amazing. That Uber hired him and let him drive around civilian passengers, in particular women and children, is a massive scandal.
We need huge civil law suits to be brought against the companies that hire these people, the companies that bring them in the country, the government agencies that sign off on radical Muslims as ‘safe’ to enter.
We need to also work with China on detecting and removing these individuals from Western states. The Chinese have a very effective system for using networks and contacts to identify radical Muslims and then to get them sent back to China for special treatment. Rendition needs to come back and the ‘frequent flyer program’ needs to be re-started.
Never happen Frank. This event was no secret. Eight bobble-heads bit the dust ’cause they had no situational awareness. It’ll never happen to you, only the other guy. Besides, there are so many people in NY, what are the chances? (smile). “The devil goes about as a roaring lion seeking who he may devour.”
Looks like a democrate to me. He was admitted into the U.S. through a “diversity” program sponsored by commie Chuck (f-u-) Schumer. Does that surprise anyone?
And yet judges close down any law or decree by Trump to control immigrants and illegals. Impeach those judges and replace them with judges that have America’s interest at heart.
And get smart. America’s judges are part of the system and thus colluding with the problem. Same goes for the FBI etc. Instead, work with actors who get the job done, ie: the Chinese. The Chinese do not mess around with radical Muslims. They identify them whereever in the world they are, and they then get them back to China and send them off to a re-education facility. The Russians also have effective measures. Their special forces pledge to hunt down radical Muslims “whereever they are”.
Radical Muslims are ONLY protected when they travel around within the borders of the Western security system. Once they step outside of that, they are fair game. ALL Muslims travel frequently to these places so deal with them when they do so.
Re: While many called for Trump to “own it” and “take responsibility,” none mentioned that Saipov entered the country under President Obama’s watch:
Hacked Memo: George Soros Lobbied Obama To Accept 100,000 Refugees Per Year — and Succeeded
“Hacked documents from George Soros’s Open Society Institute state that the billionaire and his foundation helped to successfully press the Obama administration into increasing to 100,000 the total number of refugees taken in by the U.S. annually…
The documents reveal that the billionaire personally sent President Obama a letter on the issue of accepting refugees.
The hacked memo also shows that the billionaire’s foundation pressed the U.S. government to enact two other major policy objectives regarding the intake of Syrian refugees.
A timeline demonstrates that at last one of those policies – providing more financing to overseas refugee efforts – was indeed implemented by the Obama administration…”
Folks TPTB are not gonna do shit,nothing,nada zilch. This is what they have planned all along. You import a large group of violent angry people from a culture diametrically opposed to most everything your culture stands for and make no effort to assimilate them, what do you think will happen. They set this up for 3 decades, placed a legal framework to protect it and have a media to perpetuate it. By the time the general populace figured out what they had done it was too late to stop it. Trump is President because he promised to stop it. It it’s too late , the damage is done, the ship has sailed as the LT said, “Its a big shit sandwich and we all got to take a bite”.
Have a public beheading of all terrorists. This prevents them from going to their version of heaven.
Hang this atrocity on Obutt hole where it belongs!
This is what he wanted when he started flying
thousands of jihadis here….and we all KNEW what
was going to happen, and nobody would STOP that
EVIL Obutt hole.!!!
The sanctuary state of Florida is a gateway for foreigners and illegals to enter the USA.Anyone can get a drivers license there too, just check out the 3rd world dump called Miami.
Western countries are led (mislead) by anti-Western Globalists. Every Western country needs to replace their political establishments. Importing people that may be part of a terror war against us is insane. If tomorrow there was a crater where Washington D.C. once stood, would we be worse off? I think not.
We need to re-think nation states and if we really want to be part of them. As we can plainly see the agenda is to flood the third world and radical Muslims into Western states until they overwhelm them: we need to question the point of pledging fealty to such states.
As we can see in Catalonia (the first place in Europe to square off with the Muslim invaders and kick them out of Europe many hundreds of years ago), they are once again offering an opportunity to say ‘no!’ to super states that act as migration machines.
Instead, let’s create smaller, micro states based around real values and races and ethnicities that actually get along. So much energy and negativity is expended when races are forced together that do not get along. Better to just stop that project and instead only associate with those who get along. I would guess most white people would be happy to inhabit the territory of Iceland, Northern Europe, across Northern Russia to Siberia if it meant they would not have to live with Muslims and Africans. A Great Northern Land – Odinsland. This place would have more than enough people to populate it (if you took all the white people from the US, Canada, South Africa, Australia, etc.) and would not suffer from labor shortages. Deals could be struck with Australia etc. to land purchase so that Odinsland’s people could have access to hot places for holidays etc. Trade deals could be done with Japan, South Korea and China (the only countries that matter when it comes to technology and civilization).
This arrangement would mean African Americans could be sent back to Africa and North America could be handed back to the Native Americans. This population movement would be disruptive at first but all people would be much happier for it in the end. Blacks could live among blacks, whites among whites and Asians among Asians. The proud indiginous peoples could be once again in command of their homelands. A final and total reversal of the mistake of colonisation. Through the new sciences of genetics higher breed humans could then be bred and replace the mistakes of the past. Low IQ humans would be a thing of the past, as would physically degenerate and deformed humans. This is what we need to do to save the planet and ensure the humans on the surface of this planet are worthy of such a great gift.
I read in the Main Stream Press (so I’ll take it with a grain of salt) that his guy entered the US in some kind of diversity program of Obama and Schumer. I was think about Islamic diversity. Certainly it doesn’t include gays, nor other religious faiths, nor across the spectrum political views, so what is the diversity? I had an euphony; diversity in gunmen, bombers suicide and covert, arsonists, rapists and even intentional vehicular homicide.
New Yorkers voted for their mayor
New Yorkers voted for old chuck
New Yorkers voted for old Hillary
New York is a sanctuary city
New York deserves what they got it’s called cause and effect
Bring in Muslim males and expect them to act like an American is laughable
Stay alert stay alive
“NYC Terrorist Identified As Sayfullo Saipov – Expected To Survive Bullet To Gut . . . .”
So, shoot him again. And make George Soros pay for everything — EVERYTHING — associated with this act of terrorism. Soros and his cronies thinks he is so cute with his Hillary Clinton sponsored terrorism. You bleed a few of these billionaires white and I guarantee you this crap stops.
Bad idea… one culture will always fight with another culture.
Have you learned nothing in the last 200 years?
Your solution does nothing but concentrate ethnic groups,
guaranteeing hate and discontent from ” the other ” groups.
Diversity has never worked anywhere on earth, unless they
share a similar culture.
When I heard this guy was shot once or twice in the gut and survived…..he just ran over a whole slew of people! You would think they would at least dump 4-5-6-7-8-9-10-11-12-13-14-15 rounds into him like they do with traffic stops gone bad, guy approaches a cop (or group of cops) with a small knife, or a kid with a fake gun at a playground or whole lotta catalog of instances where some folks have been totally swiss cheesed over hardly nuthing……and this idiot runs over who knows how many, fake gun, allah candybar, the whole 9 yards and only gets a double tap? We will end up supporting him for the rest of his life in some prison somewhere. If only we could or would make an “example” out of him someway to get the message across to future attackers……throw a bucket of pigs entrails and blood on him. ON TV!! something that would so psyche out a fellow radical that it would give them the willies so bad they would straighten up. No he’ll get a slap on the wrists and sent to gitmo. They should have perforated that truck so bad BEFORE he got out. This guy was a stone cold killer. Why wait to hear who or what he is, and why he did it, and what his religion was , and what his shoe size is, and if he liked vanilla as opposed to chocolate blah, blah, blah.We dont care. He needed stopped ASAP for good. Period. Im sorry too that no one on that bike path was packin heat. Maybe could have gotten him stopped sooner. They will prob ban Home Depot trucks now.
