Scientists remotely hack brain, control body movements...

Scientists remotely hack brain, control body movements...
Imagine someone remotely controlling your brain, forcing your body’s central processing organ to send messages to your muscles that you didn’t authorize. It’s an incredibly scary thought, but scientists have managed to accomplish this science fiction nightmare for real, albeit on a much small scale, and they were even able to prompt their test subject to run, freeze in place, or even completely lose control over their limbs. 
Thankfully, the research will be used for good rather than evil… for now. 
The effort, led by physics professor Arnd Pralle, PhD, of the University at Buffalo College of Arts and Sciences, focused on a technique called “magneto-thermal stimulation.” 
It’s not exactly a simple process — it requires the implantation of specially built DNA strands and nanoparticles which attach to specific neurons — but once the minimally invasive procedure is over, the brain can be remotely controlled via an alternating magnetic field. When those magnetic inputs are applied, the particles heat up, causing the neurons to fire. 
The study, which was published in the most recent edition of the journal eLife, includes experiments where were performed on mice. Using the new technique, the researchers were able to control the movement of the animals, causing them to freeze, lock up their limbs, turn around, or even run. 
Despite only being tested on mice, the research could have far-reaching implications in the realm of brain research. The holy grail for dreamers like Elon Musk is that we’ll one day be able to tweak our brains to eliminate mood disorders and make us more perfect creatures. This groundbreaking research could very well be an important step towards that future.

The Very Strange Indictment of Debbie Wasserman Schultz’s IT Scammers

The Very Strange Indictment of Debbie Wasserman Schultz’s IT Scammers
The indictment undertakes to describe in detail four counts of bank-fraud conspiracy, false statements on credit applications, and unlawful monetary transactions, yet leaves out the most damning evidence of guilt. 
In fact, the indictment appears to go out of its way not to mention it. 
To summarize, the indictment is an exercise in omission. No mention of the Awan group’s theft of information from Congress. Not a hint about the astronomical sums the family was paid, much of it for no-show “work.” 
Not a word about Wasserman Schultz’s keeping Awan on the payroll for six months during which 
(a) he was known to be under investigation, 
(b) his wife was known to have fled to Pakistan, and 
(c) he was not credentialed to do the IT work for which he had been hired. 
Nothing about Wasserman Schultz’s energetic efforts to prevent investigators from examining Awan’s laptop. A likely currency-transportation offense against Alvi goes uncharged. And, as for the offenses that are charged, prosecutors plead them in a manner that avoids any reference to what should be their best evidence. 
There is something very strange going on here.

How Does This Happen? Multiple Sailors MISSING and INJURED After USS McCain Collides With Massive Tanker

Multiple Sailors MISSING and INJURED After USS McCain Collides With Massive Tanker

A US Navy guided-missile destroyer collided with a merchant ship east of Singapore early Monday, the Navy’s 7th Fleet said in a statement. 
The USS John S. McCain collided with the merchant vessel Alnic MC while the destroyer was making its way to a port visit in Singapore, the Navy said. Search and rescue efforts are under way, the statement said. 
So far, there are currently 10 sailors missing and five are injured, according to the Navy. The ship is reportedly sailing under its own power and headed to port. 
Initial reports indicate the US ship sustained damage to its aft port side, the Navy said, but it did not give information on the status of the merchant vessel.
Just two months ago there was another mysterious collision involving a U.S. Navy Vessel:
Multiple U.S. and Japanese investigations are under way into how the guided missile destroyer USS Fitzgerald and the much larger ACX Crystal container ship collided in clear weather south of Tokyo Bay in the early hours of June 17. 
In the first detailed account from one of those directly involved, the cargo ship's captain said the ACX Crystal had signaled with flashing lights after the Fitzgerald "suddenly" steamed on to a course to cross its path. 
The container ship steered hard to starboard (right) to avoid the warship, but hit the Fitzgerald 10 minutes later at 1:30 a.m., according to a copy of Captain Ronald Advincula's report to Japanese ship owner Dainichi Investment Corporation that was seen by Reuters. 
The U.S. Navy declined to comment and Reuters was not able to independently verify the account. 
The collision tore a gash below the Fitzgerald's waterline, killing seven sailors in what was the greatest loss of life on a U.S. Navy vessel since the USS Cole was bombed in Yemen's Aden harbor in 2000.

Antifa Flag Comes Direct From the German Communist Flag, Circa 1932

Antifa Flag Comes Direct From the German Communist Flag, Circa 1932

Everything theses Alt-Left thugs use today is exactly the same as back then. Their logo, weaponized words, double standards and lack of logic. Its all from Germany 85 years ago. They call everyone Nazis because that is who their opposition in Germany was. Antifa prefaced The National Socialist German Workers’ Party and empowered them. Without Antifa’s violence the Nazi party would have never won anything. 
The first German movement to call itself Antifaschistische Aktion was proclaimed by the German Communist Party (KPD) in their newspaper Rote Fahne in 1932 and held its first rally in Berlin on 10 July 1932, then capital of the Weimar Republic. During the early 1930s amidst rising tensions between Nazis and the communists, Berlin in particular has been the site of regular and often very violent clashes between the two groups. 
In May 1932, the communist paramilitary organisation Rotfrontkämpferbund had been banned and, following a skirmish between Nazi and communist members in the parliament, the Antifaschistische Aktion was founded to ensure that the communists had still a militant wing to rival the paramilitary organisations of the Nazis. After the forced dissolution in the wake of the Machtergreifung in 1933, the movement was revived during the 1980s.

Saudi Money BUYS It's Way Into The Biggest Christian Festival in the UK Which Will Now Showcase Islam

LONDON (RNS) — Greenbelt, the biggest Christian festival in the United Kingdom, will feature Muslim worship for the first time this year. 
The decision by organizers of the annual festival — which began more than 40 years ago as a gathering that drew about 1,500 young people — has stirred some controversy, according to organizers. 
Now Greenbelt draws a much larger crowd of about 20,000 over the August Bank Holiday weekend, Aug. 25-28, and offers not only music but also theological discussion and opportunities to work on social justice issues. 
While it sprung from evangelical Christians, in recent years Greenbelt has expanded to include a much wider range of participants, including an occasional Muslim speaker. 
But this is the first year it is has made a concerted effort to feature Islamic culture and spirituality as a significant part of the festival, which will include instruction on Sufi chants — described on the Greenbelt website as “a unique form of mystical worship.” 
The chanting will be taught under an oversized tent at Greenbelt devoted to Islamic art, culture and spirituality. Including Muslim worship at a Christian festival surprised and upset some people, said Greenbelt’s creative director Paul Northup. 
“There has been some negative and quizzical reaction from die-hard supporters of the festival,” he said. But there was also healthy curiosity about the new Muslim component of this primarily Christian gathering, which takes place on land surrounding the stately Boughton House in Northamptonshire, in the English midlands. 
Programming related to Islam this year is funded by Amal — an organization that promotes Islamic culture and arts. 
The events at Greenbelt will be curated by Chicago-based producer Asad Ali Jafri. Amal is in turn backed by the Said Foundation, founded by businessman and philanthropist Wafic Saïd. 
 Asad Ali Jafri
Saïd made his fortune as a banker, and first came to prominence in the U.K. after helping facilitate the Al-Yamamah arms deal between Britain and Saudi Arabia — the biggest export deal in British history. 
“The Amal funding was a game-changer,” said Northup. “Since 9/11, the Greenbelt trustees have wanted the festival to engage with Islam more deeply,” he said. 
“We wanted to play our part in dismantling, as far as we could, the extremist stereotyping and narrative the Muslim faith and community labored under and to introduce Greenbelters to Muslim thinkers, artists, activists and spirituality.”

Boston, like Skokie provides both the model and the solution to Liberty, and Morality

I have remarked several times since Charlottesville, that the alt-right, the SICKOS of the Neo Nazi, KKK, weirdo swastikazoid, white t shirt wearing, OK signaling (to some, but incorrectly), and Pepe frog displaying dumb shits, who are so busy trying to anonymously expose themselves in their white sheeted raincoats to realize their inner compulsions of naked fear is what we see, MUST be allowed to demonstrate their disease, because by insisting they can show us how ILL they are we protect the rights of every citizen.
But we also need to remember two things, those opposing them, by PEACEFULLY opposing them, demonstrate to ourselves, and the world WHO WE ARE, and by doing so provide the MODEL made plain by Martin Luther King for each other and the world
The city govt of Boston, and the vast majority of the counter protesters using THEIR constitutional rights, are to be thanked.
This time.
The second thing they have shown us, is HOW FEW are these truly ill individuals in this nation. These people, whose ideas have been on the wane since the 1920’s are not the threat in this nation.
As always the threat is from those who seek to use these sickos as the tool to thought cleanse the USA in someone’s emotional image of what is right.
Now just imagine something. Imagine if after San Bernadino, 40,000 Americans who happen to be muslim, turned out in counter protest to San Bernadino in LOUD but PEACEFUL opposition to  other murderous monsters of sickness, but whose inner compulsions are ASCENDANT in our world today.
Imagine how we would feel about that

Media Working Overtime Trying To Prove Trump Is A Racist

From the Washington Examiner:
Major media outlets this week encouraged people to speculate on whether President Trump is a racist and even commissioned artists to convey the idea that he is, but still fell short of generating a consensus that Trump is prejudiced against non-whites. 
The effort is nearly a week old now. It began Saturday when Trump was criticized for not immediately singling out neo-Nazis and white supremacists for their role in the violence in Charlottesville, Va. 
When Trump finally did identify the groups on Monday, the press said he was too slow. Then a day later, Trump again condemned white supremacists, but also said at a press conference that both the white supremacist protesters and counter-protesters were violent, and that there is blame on “both sides.” 
By Thursday, major magazines were declaring Trump a racist. Or at least, they were suggesting it with the art on their new covers. The Economist started it off with a story titled “Donald Trump has no grasp of what it means to be president.” It was accompanied by a depiction of Trump shouting into a bullhorn in the shape of a Ku Klux Klan hood. 
The New Yorker also took on Trump by revealing its new cover: a depiction of Trump on a sailboat, blowing into the sail that is also shaped like a KKK hood. The cover art is titled, “Blowhard.”

ProPublica, working with Google to “document hate,” threatens counter-jihad bloggers

From Jihad Watch:
Google revealed in a blog post that it is now using machine learning to document “hate crimes and events” in America. They’ve partnered with liberal groups like ProPublica, BuzzFeed News, and the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC) to make information about “hate events” easily accessible to journalists. And now, there are troubling signs that this tool could be used to ferret out writers and websites that run afoul of the progressive orthodoxy.
Now, with ProPublica, we are launching a new machine learning tool to help journalists covering hate news leverage this data in their reporting.
The Documenting Hate News Index — built by the Google News Lab, data visualization studio Pitch Interactive and ProPublica — takes a raw feed of Google News articles from the past six months and uses the Google Cloud Natural Language API to create a visual tool to help reporters find news happening across the country. It’s a constantly-updating snapshot of data from this year, one which is valuable as a starting point to reporting on this area of news.
The Documenting Hate project launched in response to the lack of national data on hate crimes. While the FBI is required by law to collect data about hate crimes, the data is incomplete because local jurisdictions aren’t required to report incidents up to the federal government.
All of which underlines the value of the Documenting Hate Project, which is powered by a number of different news organisations and journalists who collect and verify reports of hate crimes and events. Documenting Hate is informed by both reports from members of the public and raw Google News data of stories from across the nation.
On the surface, this looks rather innocuous. It’s presented by Google as an attempt to create a database of hate crimes — information that should be available with a quick Google search, it should be noted. But a quick glance at the list of partners for this project should raise some red flags:
The  ProPublica-led coalition includes  The Google News Lab,  Univision News, the  New York Times,  WNYC,  BuzzFeed News,  First Draft,  Meedan,  New America Media,  The Root,  Latino USA,  The Advocate,  100 Days in Appalachia and  Ushahidi. The coalition is also working with civil-rights groups such as the  Southern Poverty Law Center, and schools such as the  University of Miami School of Communications.
ProPublica poses as a middle-of-the-road non-profit journalistic operation, but in reality, it’s funded by a stable of uber-liberal donors, including George Soros’s Open Society Foundation and Herb and Marion Sandler, billionaire former mortgage bankers whose Golden West Financial Corp. allegedly targeted subprime borrowers with “pick-a-pay” mortgages that led to toxic assets that were blamed for the collapse of Wachovia. The Southern Poverty Law Center, of course, is infamous for targeting legitimate conservatives groups, branding them as “hate groups” because they refuse to walk in lockstep with the progressive agenda. And it goes with out saying that The New York Times and BuzzFeed News lean left.
A perusal of the raw data that’s been compiled thus far on hate stories shows articles from a wide array of center-right sites, including The Daily Caller, Breitbart News, The Washington Times, National Review, and the Washington Examiner. It also includes many articles from liberal sites like BuzzFeed News and The New York TimesOne story from PJ Media’s Bridget Johnson is included in the list. It’s a report about a Sikh ad campaign aimed at reducing hate crimes against members of their faith community. Many of the articles are simply reports about alleged hate crimes from sources running the gamut of the political spectrum.
Note that Google, which recently fired an employee for expressing his counter-progressive opinions, thinks this information could be used to “help journalists covering hate news leverage this data in their reporting.” What do they mean by “leverage this data”? They don’t say, but an email sent to several conservative writers by a ProPublica reporter may give us some indication. Pamela Geller and Robert Spencer along with some others received this from ProPublica “reporter” Lauren Kirchner:
I am a reporter at ProPublica, a nonprofit investigative newsroom in New York. I am contacting you to let you know that we are including your website in a list of sites that have been designated as hate or extremist by the American Defamation League or the Southern Poverty Law Center. We have identified all the tech platforms that are supporting websites on the ADL and SPLC lists.
We would like to ask you a few questions:
1) Do you disagree with the designation of your website as hate or extremist? Why?
2) We identified several tech companies on your website: PayPal, Amazon, Newsmax, and Revcontent. Can you confirm that you receive funds from your relationship with those tech companies? How would the loss of those funds affect your operations, and how would you be able to replace them?
3) Have you been shut down by other tech companies for being an alleged hate or extremist web site? Which companies?
4) Many people opposed to sites like yours are currently pressuring tech companies to cease their relationships with them – what is your view of this campaign? Why?
In other words, nice website you’ve got there. It would be a shame if anything happened to it.
To summarize: Liberal ProPublica, working with the smear merchants at SPLC — powered by Google — sent a reporter out to issue not so veiled threats against conservative websites. It’s blatantly obvious that the goal here is to tank websites they disagree with by mounting a campaign to pressure their advertisers and tech providers to drop them as clients. This comes on the heels of Google, GoDaddy, CloudFlare, Apple, and others singling out alt-right sites for destruction in the wake of the Charlottesville riots.
Robert Spencer (who also writes for PJ Media) responded to the threat on his Jihad Watch blog:
The intent of your questions, and no doubt of your forthcoming article, will be to try to compel these sites to cut off any connection with us based on our opposition to jihad terror. Are you comfortable with what you’re enabling? Not only are you inhibiting honest analysis of the nature and magnitude of the jihad threat, but you’re aiding the attempt to deny people a platform based on their political views. This could come back to bite you if your own views ever fall out of favor. Have you ever lived in a totalitarian state, where the powerful determine the parameters of the public discourse and cut off all voice from the powerless? Do you really want to live in one now? You might find, once you get there, that it isn’t as wonderful as you thought it would be.
Spencer has recently criticized Google and the SPLC here at PJ Media for their attempts to squelch dissent, so it’s not surprising that they’ve decided to target him. Only instead of fighting Spencer’s words with words of their own, they’re lashing out with actions designed to silence him….
Robert Spencer wrote, “Authoritarianism in service of any cause leads to a slave society despite the best intentions of those who helped usher it in.”…

Michael Stürzenberger: Six Months in Prison for Posting a Photo of a Nazi and the Mufti on Facebook

From Gates of Vienna:
Long-time readers are familiar with Michael Stürzenberger, the stalwart Islam-critic who campaigned tirelessly against the proposed mega-mosque in Munich. 
He is also well-known for work on behalf of Die Freiheit and his writings at Politically Incorrect. 
Today Mr. Stürzenberger was sentenced to six months in prison for posting a photo of a Nazi and the Grand Mufti of Jerusalem on his Facebook page. 
This was not a photoshop job, mind you. The picture was not digitally altered. It was a simple historical artifact from World War Two. 
Six months in the slammer for that.

Laguna Beach Installing Barriers to Protect from Car Attacks...

Laguna Beach Installing Barriers to Protect from Car Attacks...
“We’ll place K-Rail anywhere there’s not a car because the cars are a natural barrier. We want to make sure we protect everybody,” said Laguna Beach Police Chief Laura Farinella. 
Today’s street attack in Barcelona is fresh on Farinella’s mind. She knows there are key spots that are vulnerable. 
One such spot — he popular main beach on Pacific Coast Highway. An anti-immigration rally is set for Sunday. Concrete carriers will go up to block a car from jumping the curb into a crowd. 
“Sometimes when you get a lot of people on a crowded sidewalk they want to cheat and go into the street and we want to avoid that from happening. So that in addition to any vehicles coming up over the sidewalk to strike a pedestrian is what were trying to prevent,” said Farinella. 
The iconic Laguna location is a gathering place. A driver who has an accident on this stretch of PCH or a purposeful attack like the ones on the promenade in Nice, France or on London Bridge would be devastating. 
Said one Laguna Beach visitor, “As you look at it, obviously you’re scared and you’re nervous about the potential of it happening here as well..easily a feasible thing to happen in a very idyllic and beautiful spot.”
Anonymous comments:
Why doesn't the Government install barrierswhere they would do the most good?

Breitbart News To Go ‘Thermonuclear’ Against Globalists Inside the Trump Administration

I hope to God this is true:
In an interview with Bloomberg News, Bannon issued the following warning: 
“If there’s any confusion out there, let me clear it up: I’m leaving the White House and going to war for Trump against his opponents — on capitol hill, in the media, and in corporate America,” Bannon said Friday in an interview hours after his departure was announced by the administration. 
Breitbart News is reportedly plotting to go ‘thermonuclear’ against ‘globalists’ inside the Trump administration ...
Bannon may be personally gearing up to take on the Drudge Report’s Matt Drudge. 
According to former Trump aide Sam Nunberg, Bannon believes Drudge ‘accelerated’ his White House exit driven by continuous negative coverage. Buzzfeed reports: Sources who have spoken to Bannon say the nationalist firebrand is expected to return to his old news site Breitbart. 
And one person close to Bannon says he has his eye on who he believes helped accelerate his ouster: Matt Drudge. 
“Matt Drudge worked to remove Steve Bannon, that is the reality,” said former Trump campaign adviser Sam Nunberg, who regularly talks with Bannon. “And I hope Matt is happy because his work helped Bannon not be in the West Wing, but it helped Democrats and people that didn’t vote for Trump be in the West Wing.” 
Nunberg is specifically frustrated with the continued presence and influence of chief economic adviser Gary Cohn, National Security Adviser HR McMaster, and the duo he derisively calls Javanka, Jared Kushner and Ivanka Trump. 
Bannon has openly feuded with Cohn, and Breitbart has for weeks been waging a battle against McMaster. 
Kushner developed a relationship with Drudge dating back to the campaign, and Bannon allies also blame the son-in-law for his ouster. 
People close to Bannon say Bannon privately hoped Kushner would “go down” over the intensifying Russia investigation. But a source close to Kushner said anyone who thinks you can tell Matt Drudge what to do and have influence over him does not understand Matt Drudge. 
Media relationships are important in the White House, Nunberg said, and the fact that Drudge hasn’t given Breitbart a hyperlink in months, and didn’t like Bannon. 
“It’s not lost on Steve or Breitbart staff that Drudge was out for Steve,” Nunberg said.

THERE WAS A SECOND ATTACK IN BARCELONA, BUT Spanish police kill suspects in second attack after 13 die in Barcelona

From the BBC:
Spanish police say they have shot dead five suspected terrorists in the town of Cambrils in a second vehicle attack, after an earlier one in Barcelona killed 13 people and injured dozens. The men were linked to the Barcelona attack, police say. 
Police are still hunting the man who drove his van into crowds on Las Ramblas in Barcelona on Thursday. Spain's PM Mariano Rajoy described it as a "jihadist attack", which so-called Islamic State said it had carried out.

CIA 'warned Spanish police' of an upcoming attack in the exact place it happened

The CIA told Los Mossos, the Catalonian regional police force, that Barcelona was a top target for jihadist terrorists as recently as June this year, El Peridoco, a local paper, reported on Friday. 
"Two months ago the Central Intelligence Agency passed a notice to the Catalan autonomous police," the paper said. "It even warned of the risk to Las Ramblas," the pedestrian thoroughfare hit by an attack on Thursday.

Fusion GPS Co-Founder Will Answer Questions -- But Not Publicly, and Not With Senators Present

From the Washington Examiner:
Glenn Simpson, the co-founder of the firm that assembled the infamous "Russian dossier" that purported to offer intelligence about then-presidential candidate Donald Trump, will be interviewed by the Senate Judiciary Committee later this month. 
Simpson's interview, however, will most likely be with committee staff instead of the senators themselves, according to a report by Politico, which cited a source familiar with the issue. 
The funding for the dossier has become of increasing interest for conservatives, as it assembled a host of allegations against Trump while he was a candidate, most of which have either been debunked or can't be proven. Many of the sources of the claims in the dossier also can't be pinned down with any accuracy. 
The dossier was used in part to obtain a warrant to surveil Trump associate Carter Page in 2016, according to a report by the Washington Post in April. Page has constantly mocked the document as the "dodgy dossier."

Debbie Wasserman Schultz’s Ex-IT Aide Imran Awan Indicted on Four Counts

From Fox News:
Imran Awan, a former IT aide for Democratic Florida Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz, was indicted Thursday on four counts including bank fraud and making false statements. The indictment also includes his wife Hina Alvi. 
The grand jury decision in U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia comes roughly a month after Awan was arrested at Dulles airport in Virginia trying to board a plane to Pakistan, where his family is from. 
Awan and other IT aides for House Democrats have been on investigators’ radar for months over concerns of possible double-billing, alleged equipment theft, and access to sensitive computer systems. 
Most lawmakers fired Awan in February, but Schultz had kept him on until his arrest in July. 
The indictment itself, which merely represents formal charges and is not a finding of guilt, addresses separate allegations that Awan and his wife engaged in a conspiracy to obtain home equity lines of credit from the Congressional Federal Credit Union by giving false information about two properties – and then sending the proceeds to individuals in Pakistan.

Imran Awan was but one of the IT aides who was fired...
"Brothers Abid, Imran, and Jamal Awan were barred from computer networks at the House of Representatives"
"and Hina Alvi, Imran’s wife"
Hina Alvi sent the satellite secrets to to SUPARCO for all the OPEC nations".
Legistorm verification of Hina Alvi's employment with Debbie Wasserman Schultz
Let’s talk about how Hina Alvi is really a satellite girl. So, she works for SUPARCO which is directly connected with the Space program in both Bangladesh and through Soraiya Begum which is her mother – and also Pakistan. She’s a satellite expert in Bangladesh

Did Mikhail Alperovich's VT IDirect do business with Hina Alvi's (Awan 'wife') SUPARCO? Any satellite contracts to disclose?
SUPARCO and NASA: The NASA-SUPARCO cooperation agreement called for the training of Pakistani scientists and technicians at NASA space science centers. Before the June 1962 launch, NASA had begun to train Pakistani scientists at Wallops Island and the Goddard Space Flight Centers. NASA also set up fellowships and research associate programs at American universities for “advanced training and experience.” http://www.wisconsinproject.org/pakistan-derives-its-first-hatf-missiles-from-foreign-space-rockets/

I returned, and saw under the sun, that the race is not to the swift, nor the battle to the strong, neither yet bread to the wise, nor yet riches to men of understanding, nor yet favour to men of skill; but time and chance happeneth to them all.

For man also knoweth not his time: as the fishes that are taken in an evil net, and as the birds that are caught in the snare; so are the sons of men snared in an evil time, when it falleth suddenly upon them.
Ecclesiastes 9:11,12

CNN: There Will Be Questions About Whether Barcelona Attack Was ‘Copycat’ of Charlottesville

CNN host Wolf Blitzer said Thursday there would be questions if the Barcelona terror attack involving a van crashing into a group of people was a "copycat" of what happened in Charlottesville, Va.
At least 13 people were killed and more than 50 were injured in Barcelona on Thursday when men rammed their van into a crowd of pedestrians at Las Ramblas, a popular tourism area in the city in northeastern Spain. The attack came five days after a man with white supremacist group ties was arrested for driving his car into a group of counter-protesters in Charlottesville, killing one woman and injuring multiple others.
CNN national security correspondent Jim Sciutto said the "shared tactics" of the attackers in both instances was "alarming."
"In light of the uproar of the last several days, five days apart you have a white supremacist in Charlottesville use a vehicle to kill, and here you have attackers at least following the modus operandi of terrorists using vehicles apparently to kill as well, and those shared tactics that should be alarming," Sciutto said.
"There will be questions about copycats," Blitzer said. "There will be questions if what happened in Barcelona was at all a copycat version of what happened in Charlottesville, Virginia. Even though there may be different characters, different political ambitions, they used the same killing device: a vehicle going at high speed into a group, a large group of pedestrians."


And lest you think this is just "fake news" THERE'S VIDEO!
