Curious attack on Capitol Building area, AZ vaccine halted in Netherlands: Links 1, April 2, 2021

Update on item 4: the attack on the capitol, which is somehow, not terrorism:

Oh wait, THIS is why its not terrorism:

1. More mask kerfuffles in Toronto. Rebel News report

2. Netherlands halts use of AstraZeneca vaccine for people under 60

AMSTERDAM (Reuters) -The Netherlands on Friday temporarily suspended use of the AstraZeneca COVID-19 vaccine for people under 60 following the death of a woman who had received a shot, the Health Ministry said.

About 10,000 scheduled appointments for vaccinations were to be scrapped as a result of the decision, news agency ANP reported.

The decision was made following new reports from medicine monitoring agency Lareb and discussions with health authorities, a Health Ministry statement said.

AstraZeneca said it was working with Dutch authorities to address any questions they had.

“Authorities in the UK, European Union, the World Health Organization have concluded that the benefits of using our vaccine to protect people from this deadly virus significantly outweigh the risks across all adult age groups,” it said.

3. Alberta Premiere, Jason Kenney reports that Alberta is in a 3rd wave where Covid-variants are outpacing any benefits by the various injections being offered. CBC seems to have taken a short snippet from Kenny and ran with it quite far though. Not sure how much of this Kenney actually states.

4. Someone rammed a barrier outside the US capitol building and then tried to attack people, with a knife.

No one was in the capitol building which is still surrounded with barriers, fencing and military personnel. Making this such a bad attack plan I briefly thought it was maybe a chef who was late for work.

The attacker however is not so much in custody, as he is dead.

Thank you M., Johnny U., ET., Richard, TB., Yucki and all who are keeping an eye on the road this holiday weekend.

  4. It is funny that the capitol, fortified with more military than irak and afganistan combined, gets hit with an islamic attack.

  5. The suspect is in the vehicle in the pictures shown on several sites, so it doubtful he ever stepped out of that vehicle with anything in hand….
    Congress was not in session, therefore the attack was focused specifically on the officer(s) who were run down.
    The knife and gun stories are appear to be complete BS… Obviously
    This attack was planned and directed specifically toward those on duty at the barricade…

    • Thank you for the link EB.

      Noah X:
      “…my faith is one of the only things that has been able to carry me through these times and my faith is centered on the belief of the Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan as Jesus, the Messiah, the final divine reminder in our midst.”

      And death to the Unbelievers.

    Facebook admits to pulling Noah Green’s accounts after fatal Capitol incident

    Facebook admitted Friday it suspended the accounts of the suspect in the fatal US Capitol incident — as news outlets reported he was a Nation of Islam devotee who recently lost his job and believed the government was conducting mind control experiments on him.

    “We have designated the incident under our Dangerous Individuals and Organization policy, which means we have removed the suspect’s accounts from Facebook and Instagram, and are removing any content that praises, supports, or represents the attack or the suspect,” Facebook said in a statement to NBC.

    Facebook regularly shuts down pages belonging to suspects in terror attacks and high-profile fatal incidents, but typically before the press can locate.

    Facebook did not respond for comment.

  7. Read about what the governments told the little people about:
    Gasoline additive, Methylcyclopentadienyl manganese tricarbonyl (MMT) and how many years it was allowed, the money involved.

    The Tar Ponds, Wintering Cove, Sidney Nova Scotia, The Dominion Iron and Steel Co. LTD. – later government owned- spent years dumping 84 acres of land with 700,000 metric tones of contaminated sediment. Staggering numbers of birth defects, miscarriages, deaths.

    Thalidomide first given to pregnant women for morning sickness in 1956 in Germany, finally banned in Canada. Tragic results, that changed so many lives. How did this drug ever get to be approved?

  8. ASSOCIATED PRESS source: Suspect in Capitol attack suffered delusions

    WASHINGTON (AP) — The man who rammed a car into two officers at a barricade outside the U.S. Capitol, killing one of them before he was shot to death by police, had been suffering from delusions, paranoia and suicidal thoughts, a U.S. official told The Associated Press on Saturday. Investigators believe it was an isolated incident from a disturbed young man.

    Video of the Friday afternoon attack shows the driver emerging from the crashed car with a knife in his hand and starting to run at the pair of officers, Capitol Police acting Chief Yogananda Pittman told reporters. Police shot the suspect, 25-year-old Noah Green, who died at a hospital.

    Investigators are increasingly focused on Green’s mental health as they work to identify any motive for the attack, said the official, who was not authorized to speak publicly about an ongoing investigation and spoke to The AP on condition of anonymity. The official said investigators had talked to Green’s family, who spoke of his increasingly delusional thoughts.

    In online posts since removed, Green described being under government thought control and said he was being watched. He described himself as a follower of the Nation of Islam and its longtime leader, Louis Farrakhan, and spoke of going through a difficult time when he leaned on his faith. Some of the messages were captured by the group SITE, which tracks online activity.

    “To be honest these past few years have been tough, and these past few months have been tougher,” he wrote in late March. “I have been tried with some of the biggest, unimaginable tests in my life. I am currently now unemployed after I left my job partly due to afflictions, but ultimately, in search of a spiritual journey.”

    It was the second line-of-duty death this year for the U.S. Capitol Police, still struggling to heal from the Jan. 6 insurrection. The attack underscored that the building and campus — and the officers charged with protecting them — remain potential targets for violence.

    Authorities installed a giant fence around the Capitol perimeter and for months restricted traffic along the roads closest to the building, but they had begun pulling back some of the emergency measures. And the most recent incident could delay the gradual reopening of the building’s grounds to the public.

    “I just ask that the public continue to keep U.S. Capitol Police and their families in your prayers,” Pittman said. “This has been an extremely difficult time for U.S. Capitol Police after the events of Jan. 6 and now the events that have occurred here today.

    Police identified the slain officer as William “Billy” Evans, an 18-year veteran who was a member of the department’s first responders unit.

    House Speaker Nancy Pelosi hailed Evans as a “martyr for our democracy,” while Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer said he was “heartbroken.” Pelosi and Schumer both spoke Friday with members of Evans’ family.

    President Joe Biden said in a statement that he and his wife were heartbroken to learn of the attack and expressed condolences to Evans’ family. He directed flags at the White House to be lowered to half-staff.

    In 2013, officers with the Capitol Police and Secret Service fatally shot a woman inside her car after she led them on a high-speed chase that began outside the White House. Miriam Carey’s family said she suffered from postpartum depression with psychosis but was not dangerous.

    Friday’s crash and shooting happened at a security checkpoint near the Capitol typically used by senators and staff on weekdays, though most were away from the building for the current recess. The attack occurred about 100 yards (meters) from the entrance of the building on the Senate side of the Capitol.

    The Washington region remains on edge nearly three months after a mob of insurrectionists loyal to former President Donald Trump stormed the building as Congress was voting to certify Biden’s presidential win.

    Five people died in the Jan. 6 riot, including Capitol Police officer Brian Sicknick, who was among a badly outnumbered force trying to fight off the intruders. It took hours for the National Guard to arrive, a delay that has driven months of finger-pointing among that day’s key decision makers.

    Almost 140 Capitol Police officers were wounded in that attack, including officers not issued helmets who sustained head injuries and one with cracked ribs, according to the officers’ union. Two officers, one from Capitol Police and another from Washington’s Metropolitan Police Department, died by suicide following the Jan. 6 attack.

    Capitol Police and National Guard troops were called upon soon afterward to secure the Capitol during Biden’s inauguration and faced another potential threat in early March linked to conspiracy theories falsely claiming Trump would retake the presidency.

    The area was locked down for hours Friday but has since reopened, and National Guard troops stood outside the building on Saturday.

    USA TODAY – Suspect in attack at U.S. Capitol described as average jock whose mental health appeared to quickly unravel

    WASHINGTON — The man who police say rammed his car into a security barrier at the U.S. Capitol on Friday and was fatally shot by police after emerging from the vehicle with a knife was a lifelong athlete whose mental health had started to concern his friends and family in recent months.

    Noah Green, 25, was identified as the suspect in the attack that killed one U.S. Capitol Police officer and injured another, according to a law enforcement official briefed on the inquiry. Those who knew Green described him as quiet, athletic and non-violent but also told USA TODAY they were concerned about recent changes in his behavior.

    People who went to school with Green and played sports with him growing up described him as the average jock: athletic, popular, even working at a gym in college.

    The violence on Friday, they say, was jarring compared to the person they knew, but Green’s recent social media activity seemed to offer clues that he’d changed. Some noted his growing support for the Nation of Islam – which the Southern Poverty Law Center designates as an anti-Semitic extremist group – and its leader, Louis Farrakhan.

    The Southern Poverty Law Center describes the Nation of Islam as a group that has programs and events that aim to lift up African Americans. But the SPLC also says it has a “theology of innate Black superiority over whites” and a belief system that is “consistently rejected by mainstream Muslims.”

    Green was born in West Virginia but spent most of his life growing up in a sparsely populated area of Virginia with a large family, including nine siblings, USA TODAY learned through multiple interviews. He was athletic, playing basketball and football growing up.

    He graduated from Christopher Newport University in 2019, where he played football as a defensive back, a spokesman for the school in Newport News, Virginia, told USA TODAY. On his biography page for the team, Green noted he was majoring in business and the “person in history he’d most like to meet is Malcolm X.”

    Andre Toran, who was a captain on the football team at the time, said Green was a “really quiet guy” who would crack jokes every once in a while but usually just smiled instead of chiming in on conversations.

    “I know people say this all the time, but the guy who I played with is not the same person who did this,” said Toran, a reporter at the Courier-Journal in Louisville, Kentucky, part of the USA TODAY Network.

    Toran said while he moved away to attend graduate school in Chicago, Green’s mental state became an issue of concern among their friends.

    Toran shared a Facebook post from Green during the COVID-19 pandemic in which Green accused his roommates of drugging him. Green wrote that he’d moved out but was suffering from withdrawals that included seizures and a lack of appetite, along with “paranoia” and “depression.” He wrote in the post that he was also experiencing “suicidal ideation.”

    Green’s Facebook profile was taken down Friday after the Capitol attack.

    KC Humphries, who attended CNU with Green, told USA TODAY they worked together at the school’s gym.

    “He kind of came off as the average football athlete,” she said.

    But, she added, she noticed the recent changes in his social media posts.

    “They were very weird. It was posts about joining his church and ‘one day you’ll see’ kind of stuff,” Humphries said. “It was just a lot of weird, kind of cult stuff.”

    On what appeared to be Green’s Facebook page, he posted last month about struggling over the last several years and his issues during the pandemic, including losing a job. He talked about his recent “spiritual journey.”

    “To be honest, these past few years have been tough, and these past few months have been tougher,” one post said. “I have been tried with some of the biggest, unimaginable tests in my life. I am currently now unemployed, after I left my job, partly due to afflictions.”

    But, he said, Farrakhan’s teaching had been a guiding path for him, calling him “my spiritual father” and saying despite his path being thwarted, “Allah (God) has chosen me for other things.”

    In other posts, Green shared speeches by Farrakhan and Elijah Muhammad, who previously led the Nation of Islam, and wrote about the end times.

    One of Green’s brothers told The Washington Post that Noah Green appeared to have mentally unraveled in the last several years. He abruptly moved from Virginia to Indiana and told his brother, Brendan, he was suffering from hallucinations, heart palpitations, headaches and suicidal thoughts. Brendan Green told the paper his brother informed him the drugs told him to move to Indianapolis.

    In Indiana, Noah told his brother that people were attempting to break into his apartment. Brendan Green said he flew out to Indianapolis but didn’t see anything suspicious and told The Post that Noah’s “mind didn’t seem right.”

    A few months ago, Noah Green moved to Botswana, his brother told the Post. The brothers kept in contact and at one point, Noah told Brendan that “his mind was telling him to basically commit suicide” and said he’d jumped in front of a car, Brendan told The Post. Several weeks ago, Brendan allowed Noah to come live with him after Noah said he was “in a really bad situation.”

    Investigators on Friday were still digging into the suspect’s background and examining whether he had any history of mental health issues. They were also working to obtain warrants to access his online accounts.
