More pressure cooker bombs.

But that’s par for the course with these “lone wolf” attacks. As I have said in the recent past, our government overlords do not consider it ‘terrorism’ if it involves just one or a couple-few attackers. And if it involved a team of 20 or more they would still shrug it off as ‘not terror related’ and/or “lone wolves”. So, imagine this same bullshit denialism on September 11, 2001.
Earlier Saturday a Marine charity 5K race in New Jersey was canceled after an IED pipe bomb exploded in a trash receptacle, and a second device was discovered in another.
Later in the day a man dressed as a uniformed mall security guard at a Minnesota shopping mall mumbled about “Allah” and asked mall shoppers if they were Muslim as he knifed 8 victims at different locations throughout the mall before he was shot dead by an off-duty police officer.
De Blasio said the explosion had no known connection to terrorism and wasn’t related to a pipe bomb explosion at a charity run in New Jersey earlier Saturday.
“Tonight, New York City experienced a very bad incident,” de Blasio said at a news conference near the scene in Chelsea. “We have no credible and specific threat at this moment.”
And so, if whomever is caught happens to have a Muslim name and had some scattered manifesto of radical Islamic and ISIS paraphernalia that person will be deemed “not Islamic” and have no connections to terror or ISIS (who is also ‘not Islamic’). However, if the person is some crazy-ass white guy with a Bible he stole from a motel room desk and a Trump/Pence 2016 bumper sticker on his beat-up pick-up truck then you are damn right it is “domestic alt-rightwing terrorism”!
Former NYC mayor Rudy Giuliani has a different professional opinion than Comrades Bill’s and Cuomo’s…

I repeat … THIS is exactly how the enemy fights, splintered groups and “lone wolves” getting their ideology and orders from the core group(s) like ISIS. It is what it is, and those in our country expecting us to believe we are not to recognize the threat unless they bring fleets of ships and jets and storm our shores with battalions are full of shit.
And a couple days prior to Saturday’s multiple locations attacks three NYPD officers were injured in confrontation with man wielding meat cleaver in Manhattan, 32-year-old Akram Joudah, obviously a man with a very white supremacist alt-right name. (/sarc)
More importantly, we may NOT be told if any of the suspects involved in these recent strings of isolated attacks were within any groups of “refugees” that have been uploaded into this country we either will not hear that unpleasant fact, or it will be shrugged off as an ‘outlier’ and not typical of the poor, poor folks coming here.
And while the usual suspects pile-on Donald Trump for his Twitter tweet blaming a “bomb” and how unprofessional and irresponsible of him and how unpresidential, etc…
And looky this from the Clinton News Network (CNN):
CNN covered for Hillary Clinton when it edited a statement made by the former secretary of state in response to an explosion that rocked a Manhattan Chelsea neighborhood Saturday night.
In her actual statement, the Democratic presidential nominee called the explosion a “bombing,” while at the same time chastising Donald Trump for calling it the same. Oops.
“I’ve been briefed about bombings in New York and New Jersey, and the attacks in Minnesota,” she told reporters aboard her campaign aircraft. She then launched into a call for support of first responders in these attacks.
But, TruthKings.com reported this clip from CNN on the same statement, where it edited out Clinton’s depiction of the event as a bombing, as well as any reference to the other two events.
