Elizabeth, N.J.—A New Jersey man already serving a life term for planting bombs in New York City has been convicted of attempted murder and assault stemming from a shootout with police three years ago. Ahmad Khan Rahimi sat quietly during the reading of the verdicts Tuesday. Rahimi engaged police in a gun battle after they found him in Linden, New Jersey. He fired at several officers and was wounded himself. The jury deliberated over two days before convicting the Afghanistan-born naturalized U.S. citizen of all 30 counts. Rahimi’s attorney argued his client acted in self-defense.

Comments:

The bomb the Afghanistan-born naturalized US citizen set off last year, injuring 30 people, was likewise in self-defense, against those who might accuse Muslims of not being peaceful.

He was just protecting himself from the horror of not getting 60 virgins from Allah by not complying with the edict to kill all infidels. Worse yet, it took the jury 2 days to render the guilty verdict. But then, this is NJ where all jihadis and criminals of all sorts have sanctuary... Must be they didn't want the governor and his lackey's punishing them from too quick a verdict.

Thank God George Soros was able to stop the Muslim Ban. We need more productive immigrants like Ahmad Kahn Rahimi and Baraq Hussein Obola.

Back around 1950, when Harry Truman was president, Puerto Rican terrorists shot up the House chamber, and tried to raid the Blair House where President Truman was staying because the White House was being renovated. Truman distinguished himself by stepping out onto a balcony at the Blair House, to see what the shooting was all about. And he was in his underwear. The Puerto Rican terrorists were convicted and imprisoned, yet Dollar Bill Clinton pardoned them in 1999, to grease the skids of Lady Lucifer's waddle for the NY senate seat being vacated by Daniel Patrick Moynihan. Will some future U.S. president pardon this filthy islamofacist terrorist pig, along with other pigs??

The homeless man who randomly attacked a 6-year-old Queens boy, leaving the child in critical condition, was a “ticking time bomb” with a violent past, according to police sources and court records—and even his own family says he should have been off the streets. Laurence “Larry” Gendreau, 35, was charged with assault Friday for grabbing and picking up the boy outside the child’s grandfather’s home in Kew Gardens on Thursday evening, slamming the 6-year-old face-first onto the ground and leaving him with horrific injuries, authorities said.(Snip) An hour before attacking the boy, Gendreau robbed an 80-year-old

Sen. Kamala Harris on Thursday pledged to add a White House chief advocate for LGBTQ affairs and name gay people to Cabinet posts if she is elected president. Ms. Harris, California Democrat, said the moves aimed to reverse the “Trump Administration’s hate agenda” toward lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender people. “Every LGBTQ person in America should grow up knowing they can not only get married but also live, work, go to school, access affordable health care, and be supported, embraced, safe and celebrated,” she said. “When I’m president, change will start from the top.

NASCAR has an all-new car coming in 2021, but a bigger change may happen the following year. “Nothing is fully confirmed until it hits the race track. That said, hybrid tech could certainly be in our cars by 2022, if all plans stay on track,” NASCAR’s senior vice president for racing development, John Probst, told Tech Crunch this week. Probst said the plan is still very much in development, and that the powertrains would be focused more on improving performance than fuel efficiency. Even if they debut in 2022, hybrid powertrains may be used initially just on road courses and short

At a CNN town hall on "LGBTQ Equality" Thursday night, Vice President Joe Biden recalled that in May 2012, just months before the November election that would give Barack Obama a second term, he told NBC's "Meet the Press" that he was "absolutely comfortable" with homosexual marriage. Biden was credited with forcing then-President Obama to publicly admit his support for such marriages, amid concerns that such a stance might alienate voters. However, far from being angry with Biden, Obama "gave me a kiss," Biden told CNN Thursday night. "I swear to God." Moderator Anderson Cooper asked Biden, "I'm wondering in that moment, what made you say that at that time?

Last week, as Americans grappled with the prospect of presidential impeachment and the national capacity for surprise seemed fatally depleted, news came out that shook people to their core. It was about meat. Eating red and processed meat, the headlines declared, was no longer unhealthy. It seemed—at a glance—that a bad thing was now a good thing. The stories were based on a recently published analysis of existing evidence in which one group of researchers recommended that “adults continue their current levels of meat consumption.” This conclusion—which the journal that published the research called “guidelines”—was written by a group called NutriRECS. The group was formed recently,

What is your response," an audience member asked the senator. Warren told him, "Well, I'm going to assume it's a guy who said that. And I'm going to say, then just marry one woman. I'm cool with that." She paused for applause. "Assuming you can find one," she snarked, drawing even louder laugher.
