Investigators seek motive after New York truck attack kills 8

Investigators worked through the night to determine what led a truck driver to plow down people on a riverfront bike path near the World Trade Center in New York City, brandishing air guns and yelling “God is great” in Arabic as his deadly route of terror ended with a crash, authorities said.

No this isn’t satire.

  • Thinking From First Principles

    And President Trump’s “NOT IN THE U.S.A.!” is an absolutely moronic comment. It just happened … IN THE U.S.A. Until we call these “jihadist” attacks we will never associate the correct motivation … “jihad” is only a part of Islam, and is not a part of any other religion or creed!

      I think Trump knows but can’t say publicly. To date he is being opposed from every corner and the federal courts every time he tries to put in place measures to control or revise immigration.

        Trump has no problem saying whatever he wants. I just think he’s a bit of a BS artist. About the only thing he’s said that seems to be true is his comment that he could shoot somebody and not lose voters. Too many Trump supporters are as bad as the Obama supporters to whom Obama could do no wrong. Too many Trump supporters are too willing to give Trump a pass and to find excuses instead of acknowledging Trump’s flaws. After all, Trump ran as the ultimate deal maker and the guy who doesn’t lose.

            With comments like that you out yourself as a swamp dwelling POS.

          • caliroxanne

            Not at all! I voted for him to drain the swamp, but the swamp isn’t draining too quickly. Additionally, why would Trump choose people like Tillerson and McMaster? The Trump I voted for was the Trump who during the campaign led chants of “Lock her up!” and stopping Muslim immigration not this “extreme vetting” nonsense. Trump said we were going to stop the refugee flood but did you know that in the budget, there was no money for the wall but actually money for the refugees he was supposed to stop? So you don’t like me because I hold Trump accountable and want him to honor his campaign promises?

            I question some of Tump’s picks that he has made also. Maybe add Jeff Sessions, DOJ to the list. I think he needs more time and he has moved forward on some issues by using Executive Orders but when Congress and Senate, federal courts keep stalling and blocking him, he’s still doing quite well so far. He’s a world of improvement over Ozero and what Hillary would have been as POTUS. The U.S. economy is starting to boom, unemployment is down, markets are at high levels and some of this is because people, businesses have more confidence in their leader. Compare to Canada which is sinking fast due to our idiot PM.

          Trump and his patriot supporters are on America’s side. Obama and his followers were not pro-American. Big difference. I think Trump rightly or wrongly shooting from hip Tweets is more upfront than most politicians who have honed their B.S. skills over many years.

          • caliroxanne

            I know that Obama and his supporters are anti-American. I was simply saying that I’m unwilling to be a Trump cheerleader unconditionally. He needs to do the great things he said he’d do during the campaign.

    • caliroxanne

      Of course I voted for Trump, but in reality I think he’s kind of a dope in many ways. More specifically, I voted for Trump the campaigner, not his McMaster, Kellyanne, Tillerson presidency. I voted for the Trump who called for a ban on Muslim immigration, not this “extreme vetting” BS! In too many ways, his great words during the campaign are looking like empty promises.

    Motive? Islam.

    Islam may not turn every muslim into a totalitarian-supremacist-jihadi, but it’s not for a lack of trying.

    • Yo Mama

      Nuttin to do with pislam!

      • Time for RICO-M3.

        M1 – Arrest any mullah involved in inciting this Muslim.
        M2 – Close any mosque involved in inciting this Muslim.
        M3 – Confiscate any and all monies used to incite this Muslim.

          I believe something like these legal statutes are vitally needed to begin an effective defense against the islamic invasion of the West. It will be very hard to implement requiring a radical change in governmental policies. But short term pain for long term gain. Add the proviso for mass deportation too.

          • Closing down mosques and arresting mullahs involved in any way will help a lot.

            Tracking back the money used for the jihad attacks will eventually find large amounts of Saudi money. Legally confiscate ALL of it.

    We should all give an appreciative lift of the lynch lid to all the social engineers who selflessly peel through the complex layers of fact from fiction to bring us the truth of what lies behind these terrible Lone Wolf Attacks.

  • Sharkibark

    The fact that taxpayer’s dollars are being spent to save this scum in one of the world’s best hospitals is mindboggling. They should have videotaped his prolonged death as a warning to others.

      Hear hear!

      Bellevue, where all wounded criminals are sent because of security procedures there, is indeed a good hospital, but it is not as good as New York Presbyterian, Mount Sinai or NYU Langone.

        I’d lie like a persian carpet for a dollar. I’d beat on heads all day long, with a billy club, just to make an OPP’s wage and pension…

    pisslam. the motive is pisslam. pisslam and every fucking koranimal must be eradicated from the face of the earth.

  • Norman_In_New_York

    Finding the motive would be easy if investigators removed their heads from their asses.
