Dems Pushing Biden On Filibuster Ahead Of Gun Control Vote


As the House of Representatives prepares to take up several gun control measures, including a bill that would require background checks to be conducted on most private firearm transfers, activists and Democratic officials are pressing yet again for the Senate to scrap the legislative filibuster, which requires most bills to get 60 votes for approval instead of a simple majority.

The Washington Post is reporting that, at the moment, most of the pressure is on President Joe Biden to throw his weight behind the move, which would require the action of Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer as well as the support of every Democrat senator.
Liberals have long pushed for sweeping changes like expanding the Supreme Court, ending the electoral college and banning gerrymandering. But as Biden faces a critical stretch of his presidency, even moderate Democrats are urging more immediate changes – particularly rewriting the filibuster, so that at the very least fewer bills need 60 votes to pass the Senate.

Democrats increasingly worry that popular pieces of Biden’s agenda will hit a wall in the Senate, including his plans for climate change, immigration, gun control, voting rights and LGBT protections. Failing to enact them, they fear, could be a political disaster for Democrats as well as a substantive one.

Sen. Amy Klobuchar, D-Minn., a centrist, said Wednesday she wants to “get rid of the filibuster,” her toughest comments to date on the matter. By Thursday, Sen. Tina Smith, D-Minn., announced on via social media that she, too, now wants to abolish the filibuster, because “the more I thought about it, the more I realized that the filibuster has long been the enemy of progress.”
That may be one of the dumbest statements to ever come out of the U.S. Capitol, which is saying a lot. The filibuster is there for a simple reason; the Senate is supposed be the more deliberative of the two legislative chambers. Those involved in writing the Constitution made that fact crystal clear at the time in the years after the Constitution was ratified:

Former Staffer Accuses Gov. Andrew Cuomo of Sexual Harassment

Australian Reporters Angered by Request to Stop Using the Word “Pedophile” to Describe Accused Serial Child Molester

















Might upset other pedophiles.

Australian reporters working for ABC Tasmania were angered when they were advised by top brass to stop using the word “pedophile” to refer to an accused serial child molester because it could discourage other pedophiles from seeking help.

“Oh, won’t someone think of the poor pedophiles!”

A senior producer at the network informed employees that Sexual Assault Support Service (SASS) had “mentioned their concerns” about describing former nurse James Geoffrey Griffin as a pedophile.

Griffin, who subsequently committed suicide, was accused by numerous women of sexually abusing them as children and police later found “a significant amount of child exploitation material” during a search of his home.

“We should avoid [the term pedophile], unless we know he had a clinical diagnosis of paedophilia and instead use serial sexual offender / predator, or a sexual abuser of children and young people,” the producer wrote in an email.

The missive also cited the SASS in advising that there are many “people with paedophilia” who “do not act on those impulses,” if they “reach out for and receive professional psychological help.”

The producer claimed that labeling Griffin a pedophile “could discourage” non-offending pedophiles “from seeking help, making it more likely that they go on to abuse children.”

Reporters were apparently “concerned and angered” by the email and were later told by the network that the word “pedophile” hadn’t been banned but that the SASS’s advice should be considered.

Some respondents saw this as yet another example of how society is becoming increasingly tolerant of pedophilia, which some on the far-left have tried to re-define as an alternative sexual orientation.

“Yes, by all means, let’s not hurt pedophiles feelings,” remarked one.

“This is what happens to empires/societies that live too soft too long and don’t face enough adversity or threats to its existence,” added another. “They go weird and can’t even call a spade a spade.”

Last summer, a controversy erupted when Netflix released Cuties, a movie that depicts underage children in a sexually exploitative manner.

However, many on the left defended the movie, claiming it highlighted the problem of sexually exploiting children.

Which would be like actually torturing animals to highlight the problem of...

Ted Cruz Proposes Amendment To Biden's Relief Bill That Would Prevent Illegals From Receiving Stimulus Checks






















Texas Sen. Ted Cruz, one of former President Donald Trump’s strongest allies in Congress, takes a special interest in fighting to keep the residents of his state — and across America — from the dangerous influx of illegal immigrants pouring over the border.

His next fight will reportedly be a proposal for the Democrats’ “American Rescue Plan” that would take away any stimulus check payments to illegal immigrants currently residing in the United States. He expressed great concern over the Biden administration seemingly prioritizing illegals on the same level as American, law-abiding citizens.

“Not only does this COVID bill fail to address the real needs of the American people who are suffering, but it hands out billions in taxpayer dollars to illegal immigrants,” Cruz said.

“Congress should come together to pass my amendment to stop this,” Cruz said. “We need to stand for the American people, get our kids back to school, and reopen our small businesses,” the senator added.

Not surprisingly, various organizations and Democrat politicians are up in arms about not including illegal aliens in American COVID-19 relief packages, from state to federal level.

The National Immigration Law Center (NILC) is leading the charge in making sure illegal immigrants are receiving the same benefits as law-abiding, American citizens who didn’t illegally breach the U.S. border in the middle of...

Big Tech is Getting 15 Percent Discount to Hire Foreign Workers over Americans


ORLANDO, Florida — Rep. Paul Gosar (R-AZ) warned that big tech companies are incentivized to hire foreign workers over Americans as he discussed President Joe Biden’s immigration agenda during an exclusive interview with Breitbart News at the Conservative Political Action Conference.

Gosar highlighted continuing visa programs he says “don’t work,” particularly the Optional Practical Training (OPT) program for crowding Americans out of tech jobs while tech corporations profit.

In 2019, Gosar introduced legislation titled the “Fairness for High Skilled Americans Act” to end the OPT program as Americans cannot be hired through the program.

“I’m one of the big people talking about OPT, which is the Optional Practical Training program, that Congress never authorized,” Gosar said in reference to the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) running the program on its own accord instead of enacting the program through Congress.

“This is an unkept intrusion of foreign workers that gives benefits to people like big tech to bring in folks from China, and from Pakistan, and from India, and one of the problems that exists here is that you get a 15.5 percent discount to hire them over American citizens,” Gosar said. “That 15.5 percent discount is the FICA [Federal Insurance Contribution Act] withholding tax that puts money into Social Security and Medicare.”

Indeed, the OPT program provides a tax incentive, and thus a subsidy paid for by American taxpayers, for corporations to hire foreign workers over Americans. Every year, about half a million foreign students enrolled in U.S. universities secure American white-collar jobs through the OPT program.

Corporations such as Amazon, Google, Deloitte, and Intel employ thousands of OPT foreign workers over American STEM graduates every year — reaping a more than 15 percent discount because the employers can evade at least $20 billion to $30 billion in FICA taxes over the years.

As Breitbart News has reported, there are nearly 500,000 Chinese students in the U.S. in any given year — more than any other nation — taking seats in university classrooms and looking to eventually obtain OPT authorization to take entry-level jobs in white-collar professions.

Gosar said the OPT program, by exempting employers and foreign workers from paying FICA taxes, is increasing Medicare’s insolvency.

“Isn’t it interesting now that we just got the new numbers for the insolvency of Medicare coming up shortly in 2024,” Gosar said. “These are people not putting in, or these companies are not putting that money into those programs, and yet they’ll be eligible down the road to get that, so it’s a double-dipping. So we have to highlight what doesn’t work.”

The OPT program shifts billions in economic wealth every year out of middle America and into coastal cities. OPT beneficiaries pay billions in tuition and fees, a boon for U.S. universities.

OPT data from 2017 showed that most foreign workers in the program were taking jobs in...

The Easiest Puzzle....


 

The Capitol Police Chief And Her Democratic Bosses Are Lying To You, All To Hold Our Capital Hostage

























WASHINGTON — My city has been occupied for more than eight weeks. Major thoroughfares blocked, thousands of armed soldiers, armored vehicles, seven-foot fencing, concertina wire.

What’s it all for? An invading army across the Potomac? Rising far-right militias, ready to strike at any moment?

Nope. It’s because when angry rioters and protesters attacked the Capitol on Jan. 6, a Capitol Police force hobbled by its leadership’s poor training regimens, nearly non-existent fitness standards, and fecklessness in the face of crisis were incapable of protecting the building or even shutting the big doors on time.

It’s because those idiot rioters had finally — after months and years of left-wing riots here and across the country — finally given Democratic lawmakers and the corporate media the right-wing riot they always claimed was around the corner.

It’s because panic porn and agitprop are useful tools when you’re working as hard as you can to spread fear and distrust against the half of the country that disagrees with your policies.

And it’s because acting Capitol Police Chief Yogananda Pittman is perfectly content to use her own men and women as political pawns and scapegoats to please her new Democratic bosses.

Just as with “two weeks to slow the spread,” on Capitol Hill we were told one month to stop the “insurrection.” Then three weeks in, the acting Capitol Police chief requested that fencing remain permanently, a sort of replacement for providing the training and enforcing the standards that are expected of police departments across America.

In the following weeks, reporters at outlets like Politico thirstily spread rumors from unnamed “Guard members” that March 4 was the day the militias would finally come back. Except this time, instead of tens of thousands of people flying and driving to the capital for a widely advertised protest with nearly zero preparation for crowd control, there was internet “chatter” about something maybe happening to a building people can’t walk within 100 yards of because it’s surrounded with razor wire and thousands of National Guardsmen.

While headlines like “Capitol Police Say Intelligence Shows Militia Group May Be Plotting To Breach The Capitol” ran in The Washington Post, readers who got seven paragraphs down learn the FBI actually didn’t “have any indication of violence or a specific, credible plot at this time” — the kind of fact that might cause more intelligent or honest journalists to wonder what “intelligence sources” the Capitol Police were citing. None of that got in the way, of course.

And none of it got in the way of acting Chief Pittman, who requested Thursday that the occupation be extended a...

36-Year-Old Woman ‘is Gang Raped’ by Migrants ‘After Stopping to Talk to Them about Their Situation’












She learned about migrants the hard way.

A 36-year-old woman was allegedly gang raped by four migrants after stopping to talk to them about their situation in a cautionary tale for what is happening in the West as a result of the mindless embrace of tolerance and diversity.


The woman was reportedly accosted by the migrants while traversing Agua La Perra park in the town of Mogan on the Spanish holiday island of Gran Canaria. She was treated by a doctor at a hospital before reporting the crime, and Spain’s Civil Guard has apprehended four suspects after conducting an investigation.


While the West has been sold on diversity being a strength, the actual fruits of the new multicultural system being imposed by globalists tell a much different story.

Big League Politics has reported on how the refugee resettlement program that has flooded the U.S. and Europe with third-world migrants has been dictated based on bribes rather than legitimate humanitarian need:
The Democratic Party wants to dump thousands of so-called refugees into the United States, but a burgeoning scandal for the European refugee resettlement program may put the globalist scheme into jeopardy.

The United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) has been exposed for accepting bribes from certain migrants to facilitate their relocation into Western nations. Hamdi Abdullahi explained to NBC News how her children were robbed from her due to UN corruption.

“I’m like the walking dead,” she said.

Her four children were essentially kidnapped from her after her ex-husband paid off UNHCR resettlement officer David Momanyi. He took the bribe money to made sure she was estranged from her children. Her ex-husband and children are now living in Minnesota, as she sits in a UN refugee camp with 200,000 Somalis without her family.

An anonymous UN whistle-blower confirms that Abdullahi’s story is more than mere sour grapes. He claims to have personally collected tens of thousands of dollars from refugees on Momanyi’s behalf, proving that the resettlement program is about something far more pernicious than compassion.

Abdullahi’s ex-husband paid almost $20,000 in several installments according to the whistle-blower. Momanyi was described by refugees as “the architect of corruption and refugee resettlement problems.”

The UNHCR’s staff is denying the scandal, hoping to sweep it under the rug so they can continue the globalist plan to flood the West with the refuse of...

Tucker: ‘Troops Will Never Leave DC; They’re There To Prop Up The Regime’



















Phantom threats including “QAnon Inauguration Day” are being used to continue an occupation around the center of government

Tucker Carlson outlined Thursday how Democrats intend to maintain a permanent military presence in Washington DC and will continue to manufacture security threats to keep fear among leftists high.

“When you’re a liberal, the world is a very scary place, but there is one fear that rises above all other fears in the liberal mind: The fear of “the other,” Carlson opined in his monologue.

He continued “Liberals understand most of the American continent as a mysterious dark space, like a medieval map populated by drooling Trump voters and violent illiterates with extra chromosomes.”

“There’s nothing rational about that behavior, but you shouldn’t be surprised by it. Modern liberalism is not a coherent worldview, it’s a deeply unhappy, high-strung personality type. Wokeness is what you get when people are miserable inside,” Carlson added.

The host then outlined how phantom threats including “QAnon Inauguration Day” are being used to continue an occupation around the center of government.

“What is QAnon Inauguration Day? We have no idea, and we don’t know anyone who does,” Tucker continued, adding “We’d bet money that not one Trump voter in a million had heard of it until this week, when the hysteria merchants on the other channels started yapping about it on television.”

Carlson noted how Nancy Pelosi and House leaders rescheduled votes Thursday and many even fled the Capitol, including even some Republicans, believing their own fear mongering that there would be another “peasants revolt”.

“It was all just another lie,” Tucker urged, noting that it is “not so different from when they told us we would need troops to protect Joe Biden’s inauguration. Then, they said we would need soldiers to keep QAnon away from the impeachment trial. Then, there was today’s hysteria. Next, there will be something else. Capitol Police are now saying they will need soldiers in Washington for at least...

National African American Gun Association Head Weighs In On Gun Control Measures













The National African American Gun Association just celebrated its sixth anniversary back on February 28th, and the Second Amendment organization is growing by leaps and bounds at the moment. Founder and president Phillip A. Smith joins me on today’s Bearing Arms’ Cam & Co to talk about why he started the association and why he’s opposed to any new gun control laws that would have a chilling effect on the Second Amendment rights of the people; including African Americans.





Gun control has historically been used to prevent disfavored individuals and groups from exercising their Second Amendment rights; from the Jim Crow-era laws (some of which are still on the books) that required prospective handgun owners to get permission from local police to New York’s Sullivan Act, which was adopted to prevent immigrants from owning firearms to protect themselves in the crowded and dangerous neighborhoods where they lived.

Today, of course, gun control advocates would never openly demand laws that would have a disparate impact on African Americans who choose to exercise their right to keep and bear arms, but that doesn’t mean that the enforcement of those laws are colorblind.

“I really struggle when I hear politicians, whoever they are, put out legislation that’s really not going to address the issue,” Smith says. “I’m all for going after the bad guys; if you’re a violent criminal you need to get put away forever. I’m firmly in that camp. But at the same time, we need to take a step back and look at not the symptom, but the disease.”

Smith argues that the “disease” of violence has certain characteristics, whether it’s the south side of Chicago, south central L.A., Detroit, or any other community plagued with violent crime and gang warfare.

“Lack of skillsets in terms of getting a job; the over-felonization of young folks, who by the time they’re 22 or 23 they cannot get a job anywhere because they have two or three felonies for low-level marijuana and drug offenses,” he stresses. “They have confrontational relationships with law enforcement at best. We need to go after those social structures which are causing those folks to be in a position where they don’t have the opportunity to make money to live. And if you or I were in the same position where we could not do anything for our families, couldn’t get a job since we can’t interact with anybody or anything in a normalized social fashion, then you’re going to be forced to do things that you would not normally want to do. And that’s where we need to put our emphasis and focus, not on law-abiding gun owners.”

Focus on the criminals, argues Smith, but also on the social, economic, and political structures that foster criminality in...

Study Finds 90% of COVID-19 Deaths Are in Countries With Mass Obesity


















What?? So It's Not Systemic Racism???

The obesity pandemic may be driving the COVID-19 pandemic, according to new study from the World Obesity Federation.

From Fox News, "Study finds link between coronavirus mortality risk and obesity":
[World Obesity Federation] researchers found "high mortality rates only in countries where overweight prevalence exceeds around 50% of the adult population."

"Globally, at the end of 2020, COVID-19 mortality rates were more than ten times higher in countries where overweight prevalence exceeds 50% of adults (weighted average 66.8 deaths per 100,000 adults) compared with countries where overweight prevalence is below 50% of adults (weighted average of 4.5 deaths per 100,000 adults)," the World Obesity [Federation] wrote.

The researchers claimed that a country's wealth, reporting capacity, elderly population, and other factors could not explain the link between COVID-19 and obesity.

The United States has one of the highest obesity rates in the world, increasing from 30.5% to 42.4% of the population in the last 18 years, according to the CDC. The United States also has the 9th highest COVID-19 death rate in the world at 158.43 deaths per 100,000 people, according to Johns Hopkins University.

The CDC notes that obesity may triple the risk of hospitalization due to COVID-19, as it causes impaired immune function and can decrease lung capacity.
When the corona-panic first took off back in February 2020 it presented the greatest public health opportunity in decades.

Most everyone was in a panicked, highly suggestible state and were hungry for information on how to help themselves.



Imagine if the government told everyone to lose weight, exercise, eat healthy and make sure you're getting enough vitamin D as Dr. Ron Paul was recommending.

Instead, the government told everyone to lock themselves in their homes, "social distance" and wear cotton masks (after first telling everyone not to wear masks).

They shut down our entire society (excluding globalist megacorps) for over a year straight, banned doctors for telling people to take vitamin D or hydroxychloriquine (both of which were eventually found to be effective in multiple studies) and told everyone to...

Illegal Alien Jorge Rios Charged With Rape And Murder Of Jogger In Jersey Park...

Jorge Rios, Illegal Alien, Rapist, Murderer

A New Jersey man has been arrested in connection with the sexual assault and murder of a woman found dead in a park lake last month, prosecutors said.

Jorge Rios faces charges of felony murder, kidnapping and aggravated assault for the death of Carolina Cano, 45.

Cano's body was found shortly after 7:30 a.m. on March 24 in a lake at Lincoln Park in Jersey City, New Jersey. Her cause of death was strangulation and drowning and was ruled a homicide, the Hudson County Prosecutor's Office said in a press release.

Her roommate told NBC New York that Cano left their Jersey City home around 5:30 a.m. to go jogging and never returned.

"She was like family because I've known her since she was a little girl," the roommate, who was not identified, said.

Cano's family lives in Peru, according to the roommate. Cano came to the United States alone and worked as a nanny.

"She was a working woman, a good woman," her roommate said. "She didn’t bother anyone. She was a woman that was always with God, that’s how she lived. She was really a beautiful woman. She had a very beautiful heart."

Rios, 33, was arrested Sunday by the Hudson County Prosecutor's Office Homicide Task Force and is being held at...

Official Arrested After Judge Finds 78% of Mail-in Ballots Were ‘Fraudulent’



















A notary official in Aberdeen, Mississippi has been arrested after a judge found that 78 percent of mail-in ballots were fraudulent.

Judge Jeff Weill ordered a new runoff election following the finding.


Per WCBI:

In the sixty-four-page order, Judge Jeff Weill not only calls for a new election but also finds evidence of fraud and criminal activity, in how absentee ballots were handled, how votes were counted, and the actions by some at the polling place.

In his ruling, the judge said that sixty-six of eighty-four absentee ballots cast in the June runoff were not valid and should never have been counted. Nicholas Holliday was declared the winner by a 37 vote margin. Robert Devaull challenged the results in court.

Judge Weill found many irregularities with absentee ballots. He issued a bench warrant for...

Man arrested for allegedly reporting himself to police multiple times to create ‘George Floyd incident’



















Tamon Leverette was arrested on two counts of false reporting for trying to “George Floyd” himself.

According to Jason Rantz, Arlington Police uncovered an attempt to create racial animus. They don’t know why Tamon Leverette set himself up. But according to Arlington Police Chief, Leverette said that he “could see himself in a similar situation as ‘George Floyd’.”

Tamon called 911 on February 22nd identifying himself as “Stacy Williams.” According to the incident report it notes “it sounded like a male speaking in a higher pitch to simulate that of a female’s voice.” Mr. Leverette depicted himself as someone holding a handgun, wearing a red bandana, and “too young to even have a pistol. He only looks 16, 17 years old.”

When the cops arrived they didn’t find any gun on Leverette. “Tamon pulled up his left pant leg, showing me a Department of Corrections (DOC) GPS tracking ankle band,” according to the incident report. “He informed me that he was not doing anything wrong, just waiting for the bus to come so he could go to his DOC check in with his assigned DOC Officer.”

The two parties went their separate ways in a seemingly cordial fashion.

The next day Leverette accused the Everett Police of “racial profiling” him for “being black.”

The officer called “Stacy Williams” to investigate and was sent to a voice mail inbox. This is what outed Tamon Leverette as Stacy Williams.

“I noted that the voice mail was set up by a mail with a voice that seemed very similar to that of Tamon. I asked Dispatch if this phone number had been previously used for any calls to 911 Dispatch. The Dispatcher notified me shortly after that the phone number had called 911 on five separate occasions in December of 2020 for “Civil” calls at an address of 520 Commercial Ave, Darrington WA. Dispatch advised me that the only name used to call into 911 on those incidents was “Tamon L.””

This isn’t the first time that it happened, either. In December 2020 Leverette reportedly pretended to be “Eric Johnson” and called himself in to the cops. Arlington Police Chief Jonathan Ventura told Jason Rantz that this type of situation was...

Dr. Seuss?? Come On Man!!!



 

The Cancellation Of Dr. Seuss Should Disturb You, Because You’re Next



America is entering its very own Mao-like Cultural Revolution. The iconoclasm of the left’s culture war isn’t a side effect, it’s the point.

Dr. Seuss has been cancelled. Some of his work has been deemed racist, and we can’t have that. On Tuesday, the entity that oversees the estate of Theodor Seuss Geisel announced it would no longer publish six of Geisel’s books because they “portray people in ways that are hurtful and wrong.”

Among the works now deemed unfit for children are Geisel’s first book under the pen name Dr. Seuss, “And to Think That I Saw It on Mulberry Street,” published in 1937, and the much-beloved, “If I Ran the Zoo,” published in 1950. The former depicts a “Chinaman” character and the latter shows two men from “the African island of Yerka” in native garb.


There’s not much point in quibbling over whether these and other such illustrations in the condemned Dr. Seuss books are in fact racist or bigoted, or whether Geisel held racist or xenophobic views. By all accounts he was a liberal-minded and tolerant man who hated Nazis and, as a political cartoonist, mocked the antisemitism that was all-too-common in America during World War II.

He was also a man of his era. Later in life, he regretted some of his political work during the war that stereotyped Japanese Americans, which, as jarring as it might seem today, nevertheless reflected attitudes that were commonplace at the time.

But context and nuance don’t factor into the inexorable logic of the woke left, which flattens and refashions the past into a weapon for the culture wars of the present. What’s important to understand is that this isn’t simply about banning six Dr. Seuss books. All of Geisel’s work is, in the judgment of left-wing academia, an exercise in “White supremacy, paternalism, conformity, and assimilation.” It might be easy for conservatives to laugh that off as nonsense, but they shouldn’t, because this isn’t really even about Geisel.
The Left Is Carrying Out a Cultural Revolution

To grasp how a man known as much for his messages of tolerance as for his artistic genius could be canceled for racism, you have to understand what’s actually happening here. The left’s war on the past, on long-dead authors like Geisel, isn’t really about the past, it’s about the future. It’s about who gets to rule, and under what terms.


There’s a predictable pattern to what we’re seeing now. It’s predictable because it has happened before in much the same way it’s happening now. During China’s Cultural Revolution in the 1960s and ‘70s, the Chinese Communist Party, at the direction of Mao Zedong, called for the destruction of the “Four Olds”: old customs, old culture, old habits, old ideas. All of these stood in the way of Mao’s socialist ideology, so they had to be destroyed.

Children and students were encouraged by the communist government to inform on their parents and elders, to shame and condemn them in public. The guilty were forced to recant in “struggle sessions,” during which they were mocked and humiliated, sometimes tortured, sometimes murdered. Before it was over, millions were dead.

We’re obviously not there yet, but the woke revolutionaries who now run our elite institutions and exert outsized influence in the corridors of power are following this same pattern.

First, they come for the monuments, destroying the icons of the past and re-writing history to turn even our national heroes and Founding Fathers into enemies. The animating ethos of the mobs pulling down Confederate statues is the same as The New York Times editors who gave us the 1619 Project. And because there is no limiting principle to iconoclasm, they have moved on from...

TERROR ATTACK IN SWEDEN – AFGHANI MIGRANT STABS EIGHT IN VETLANDA (VIDEO)


















Update: According to Swedish New Agency, Expressen the attacker is a 22-year-old Afghan citizen who has previously been convicted of drug offenses. The terrorist is said to have received regular visits from social services at home and has been suffering from “mental problems” for some time.

In virtually every instance of jihad attacks in Sweden, politicians & media hide the identity of the attackers. In rare instances when the identity of an attacked is leaked, the suspect is presented as possibly suffering from mental health issues.

———————————–

Swedish Police have shot and arrested a man in his 20’s after he attacked several people in the southern Swedish town of Vetlanda with a ax just before 3pm on Wednesday. Despite the man’s criminal record, the police stated that the attacks came as a “total surprise”. Several victims are said to be seriously injured.

The stabbings occurred in five separate locations which have been cordoned off, all within a few hundred meters of each other.
Suspect Motives/Citizenship

The assailant’s motive remains “unclear”, however, police initially said they were treating the stabbings as a ‘suspected terrorist crime.’ Hours later, police announced they are investigating the attack as an “attempted murder with terrorist motives”.

Police have refused to answer media questions about the suspect’s citizenship. However, The Editor-in-Chief at Swedish news agency, Dagens Nyheter, is reporting the suspect was first registered in Sweden in 2018, and that he previously was convicted for a low-level drug offense.


According to the the suspect’s neighbor, he spoke very poor Swedish and no English. Another neighbor states that a woman used to regularly come to the man’s home to help him.
The attacker moved to Vetlanda from another place nearby just a year ago. During the evening, police searched the man’s ground floor apartment in a residential area in Vetlanda.
Suspect Shot

Swedish newsite, Samnytt, published a video of police shooting the suspect in Vetlanda. A police car with blue lights on can be seen in the clip as well as two police officers. The children filming shout “He has a gun!”. Then a shot is heard. The video was spread on Snapchat during the evening.
