Manchester Terror Attack

Monday’s terrorist attack at the MEN Arena Manchester was an outrage, in which 21 mostly young people attending an Ariana Grande concert were murdered.

More than that, it was an Act of War by the Federal Republic of Germany against Our Sovereign Lady Queen Elizabeth II. Lacking strong government, with a weak Prime Minister with respect, Britain is not going to declare war on Germany, any more than we did after our community partner Adolf Hitler annexed Austria.

However, as in 1938, that is the direction in which we are headed. The Germans have shown themselves willing to murder eight year old girls in order to keep Britain in the German orbit, a.k.a. the EU. Germany lot a lot of friends this week.

There can be no doubt that Germany was behind the atrocity. The dead terrorist, dual UK-Libyan national, Salman Abedi, was loosely affiliated with the German-sponsored ISIS terrorist organisation. He flew to Britain from Dusseldorf, Germany, just days before the attack. The explosive used, TATP, and the timer, are consistent with those used in other German-sponsored attacks.

The attack happened in the middle of the British General Election campaign, in which the key issue is Brexit, and was clearly designed to intimidate voters into supporting a Labour, SNP and Liberal Democrat coalition committed to keeping Britain trapped inside the European single market, at a cost to UK plc of $5-6 billion a week.

Right from the time they arranged to sink the Titanic, German Intelligence has favoured murdering women and children for the shock value. We have seen the tactic time and time again – the Athenia in 1939, Comet Yoke Peter in 1954 and so on. We are heartily sick of it.

The attack required police co-operation, e.g. in relaxing security at the European-controlled MEN Arena concert venue. At some point on Monday evening bag checks were suspended. Security were prevented from detaining a suspected female suicide bomber inside the venue, although under British law they had power of arrest. Only Germany’s GO2, which has penetrated the Cabinet Office, which in practice controls the police, has that kind of pull. A senior police officer needs a lot of backing before getting into the grisly and entirely criminal business of acting as an accessory to child murder.

The German-sympathizing New York Times outraged British security officials by printing gloating pictures of the aftermath of the attack and handing out details which I assume were leaked by CIA, who need a good smack in return, no offense intended. The Times wouldn’t back a terrorist attack in the West unless it was German-sponsored. Frankly, the boys and girls there
have had enough time to process Germany’s defeat in World War II. The Bad Guys usually end up losing. Get over it.

All major terrorist attacks are state-sponsored. No other state has been seriously suggested as the sponsor. You can forget Russia, America or Israel, even France. None of those states has ever mounted a terrorist attack against British Subjects on British soil.
I feel sorry for Ariana Grande by the way. I’m pleased the Queen said some nice things about Ariana’s singing. She must be feeling awful, but she’s not to blame.

End of the Lone Wolf Theory

The only good thing to come out of this week has been the collapse of the Lone Wolf Theory. Encouraged no doubt by the Cabinet Office, the police were frantically pushing this line in the first 24 hours after the attack. MI5 then took over and we started to see a more rational response.

The police are rounding up the usual suspects, i.e. anyone who looks even vaguely Moslem, and generally are being about as efficient as the Keystone Cops. The search rather puts me in mind of the search for the Phantom Raspberry Blower of Old London Town in the immortal Two Ronnies sketch series satirising the futile search for ‘Jack the Ripper’.

They’ll never catch the bomb and timer makers, any more than Scotland Yard caught the Ripper (partly because there wasn’t one – it was a group of German military doctors and intelligence officers) and aren’t even looking for the intelligence officers who planned the attack. Like the FBI, the police here have an almost deranged obsession with terrorism being no more than a crime committed by individuals or groups with a grievance.

The police still haven’t worked out the link to Brexit and they’re never going to. That requires analysis and analysis requires a brain, no offense intended.

I suspect that Abedi picked up the timer in Dusseldorf, Germany, to which city he flew from Syria. He had gone to Syria from Libya, his second country of nationality by virtue of the jus sanguinis. The TATP explosives were probably handed to him by a bomb-maker, using a cut-out, in the UK. Even with our current lax border controls it’s not that easy to get explosives through Manchester Airport. Don’t try it at home, at any rate.

Was Abedi a Suicide Bomber?

In my opinion he was not. Islamic suicide bombers tend to display a fixed set of behaviors, such as excessive praying before the attack, a robotic walk (they are very often drugged) and excessive signs of nerves. They also tend to wear more than one pair of shorts, presumably because they’re worried about not getting to shag their 72 virgins if they blow their willies off. They also tend to shout ‘Allahu Akbar’ or some such before blowing themselves to bits.

Abedi displayed none of the typical behaviour of a suicide bomber. He was also using a back-pack, not a suicide vest. Back-pack bombs, with the battery and a timer in the bag, are usually used by terrorists hoping to make a getaway.

My analysis is that GO2 double-crossed Abedi in the same way they double-crossed the 7/7 terrorists, who were told that their timers were set for ten minutes. I’m not sure that Abedi was a screamer. You get a few milliseconds warning of the explosion of your back-pack (the detonator goes first of course) before the shock-wave blows your torso across the street, or in this case, foyer.

One of the 7/7 bombers was a screamer, Hasib Hussain, the terrorist on the bus. He had been trying to reach his co-conspirators by cell-phone, a fairly pointless exercise after the agreed time for co-ordinated attacks had they really been suicide bombers. Clearly Hussain was not expecting to blow himself up and was rather annoyed to have discovered, in the final moments of his worthless existence, that he had done so. Tough.

The Second Bomber

It looks like there was a second bomber, inside the arena, who was spotted by an alert concert-goer, who was allowed media access in the 24-hour free commentary period. After 24 hours, the clamp comes down of course.

This second terrorist, a woman, was displaying classic signs of nervousness. She kept looking in the direction of the eventual explosion. I suspect the plan was for her to detonate a device inside the concert hall, causing thousands of concert-goers to flee towards Abedi’s device. My guess is that the Bad Guys were disappointed with an innocent death toll of ‘only’ 21. Very hard if you’re a grieving family member, of course, but 21 deaths is a lot better than 150.

The UK’s Response

Clearly the UK should escalate the Global War on Terror and step up attacks on ISIS, committing grounds troops in the Middle East. Idiots like Jeremy Corbyn, no offense intended (he’s quite a nice chap) who are calling for a retreat in the War on Terror are sending out precisely the wrong response.

The correct strategic response would be to declare war on Germany, but you need a Churchill to do that, and Theresa May is more of a Chamberlain, again no offense intended.

We should make it impossible for terrorists with a British passport traveling abroad to come back to this country. Depriving terrorists or those reasonably suspected of preparing to engage in acts of terrorism of British nationality is straightforward in the case of dual nationals like Abedi. He should have been stripped of his British nationality and deported to Libya.

Security in public places is going to have to be stepped up. Far more ex-military personnel should be employed as security officers. Security at the MEN Arena on Monday night was a joke – at least one terrorist, probably two, armed with viable IEDs were permitted to wander in without any effort about which we can be told to stop them. Personnel with military training and combat experience in the War on Terror would have been both more proficient and more alert. They should also be armed.

A statutory requirement for security guards at large venues to have military experience and firearms proficiency would be entirely reasonable. Above all, we must shut down GO2. To do that we have to stop pretending that the large and powerful Abwehr station in London was shut down in 1945. It was just renamed.

The deadly Cabinet Office grip on the Joint Intelligence Committee needs to be broken and the failed PREVENT strategy abandoned. The UK also needs to pull out of the 1951 Refugee Convention and the European Human Rights Convention. Abadi was only born here because his parents were granted asylum. The 21 innocents who died on Monday have further swelled the death-toll of the hopelessly outdated Refugee Convention.

Effect on the General Election

Theresa May had run into trouble before Monday. She makes policy by clique, rather than use her party’s machinery. Her Cabinet are also mostly house-trained and will tend to swallow any nonsense put in front of them, as long as it’s official nonsense.

Theresa May

Theresa lumbered herself with Phillip Hammond as Chancellor, who’s even more house-trained than the rest of the Cabinet. Hammond was clearly duped by Treasury officials into sneaking into the manifesto a disastrous and deeply unfair proposal on social care. The Treasury wants a Labour/LibDem/SNP coalition to keep Britain in the single market.

I have little doubt that Treasury officials tipped off Labour, who promptly labeled this silly proposal the ‘dementia tax’. Theresa May walked into this one and the Tory lead in the polls started to disappear. The latest YouGov poll has the lead down from over 20% to 5%. Not good, although YouGov are pro-European.

However, the overall impact of the attack is likely to favour the Tories, as Labour are soft on terrorism. Weak as she is, with respect, Theresa May is stronger than Jeremy Corbyn.

I still predict a Tory win, but I think you can forget a large majority. I foresee a lot of tactical voting, some LibDem gains in London, some Tory gains from Labour in the West Midlands and the SNP in Scotland and possibly a couple of seats for UKIP (Boston and Thurrock).

The Tories have fought a disastrous campaign, which was derailed by the social care blunder. The campaign was going so badly for them by Monday that some conspiracy theorists have suggested that Abedi was secretly working for the Tories! My guess is that Abedi voted Labour, if he voted at all.

Sir Roger Moore KBE 1927-2017

This week saw the sad passing of this great actor. I admired Roger Moore from the 1960s, when I first saw him in the classic TV show Ivanhoe. He went on to play the Saint, Lord Brett Sinclair in The Persuaders, alongside the late, great Tony Curtis and, most famously, James Bond.

He is still my favorite Bond. He played the role with style, humor and panache. I know the critics favor Sean Connery, but they would. Sir Roger Moore had far more charm!

Like myself (!) he was given to self-deprecation and excessive modesty. He always down played his acting talents, but they were considerable.

If you doubt me look at his performances in The Man Who Haunted Himself (1970), playing effectively two characters, each named Pelham. He drove a Rover 3.5 Liter with a registration number only four removed from one of mine (AVB902H from memory), which got my attention. I loved my 3.5 Liters – they were stately and comfortable automobiles, rarely seen in the States, sadly. Farewell, Sir Roger. You have left the scene far too soon.

Happy Memorial Day weekend everyone.

    The last line of the article references the Memorial Day weekend. It also happens that Sunday was Ascension Sunday, for both the West and East Christians.The Russians celebrated the Ascension on Thurs, May 25, by consecrating their New Martyrs cathedral, the new cathedral dedicated to the memory of the millions who perished during the years of Bolshevism. Kudos to them! And what did we do the same day in the West? Well, among the false flag distractions this week, we had the spectacle of George Soros delivering a speech at the Brussels Economic Forum, as he continues to shovel Bolshevism into the West. And last Tuesday, comedian Kathy Griffin and her photographer Tyler Shields thought it would be fun to pretend they were ISIS, with a photo shoot of a realistic-looking beheaded POTUS Trump, proving that Satanism and paganism are alive and well in Hollywood. She is feeling the fallout from her act of grossness, but sadly the photographer hasn’t.

    Good comments Andrea and JS!

    Mossad are indeed nice people, once you get to know them.

  3. JS  May 29, 2017 at 7:45 pm

    1st paragraph says 21 were murdered. Later, the death toll rose to 22. The date of the attack was the 22nd. Twin 22s. Some people still pathetically cling to number “magic”.

    • JS  June 3, 2017 at 8:49 am

      In addition, headlines said 119 were injured. This is so obviously 11/9, a reference to the Sept 11 terrorist attacks in the US. More recently, I have seen the number 116 used, but the 6 is just 9 flipped upside down. Same number “magic”. It also appears that Ole Dammegard was expecting an attack in Manchester, based on clues from the previous attack. They think that if they show us clues to their next attack, that somehow this absolves them of blame, since you have supposedly been forewarned. That is a completely false and sick assumption. Their karma is not going to be good, not at all.

    On reading some of the comments, and having read Shrimpton’s books (he thinks MOSSAD are fairly decent chaps)….I do believe that folks forget the link between Germany and Israel (not the hoax) and how German and Khazarian banker Jews plotted their creation of the Zionist State…..is it too much to think that Germany is still run by high ranking Zionists (why else would the Christian Democratic Party leader Herr Merkel allow the destruction of the German people from within by unmitigated immigration) and the fact those immigrants are of Muslim decent hence ridding a lot of fighting age muslims out of their homelands to make the Greater Israel an even easier goal to achieve with diminished ‘enemy’ combatants??…..give it some thought folks

    • Trakkath  May 29, 2017 at 9:05 am

      They already tried to take over germany since the “Paulskirchen-Verfassung” in 1849 and some spots were taken over by them already like “Medinat Weimar” and “Königreich Romkerhall” in Oker near my birth town Goslar. They really are a cancer to our society.

    • Trakkath  May 29, 2017 at 9:17 am

      The so called “House of Windsor” is the former “House of Saxe-Coburg-Gotha”, so what ?

      Trakkath – oh yes, I know all about Queen Lizzie’s walk of shame and I can’t stop smirking every time my fellow countrymen wave flags in it’s honour……what pisses me off about her….and the Vatican…..is they could feed millions of starving, homeless people worldwide and do not lift a single finger to do so……really ‘grinds my gears’ as Peter Griffin would say

  6. Michael Shrimpton  May 28, 2017 at 11:40 am

    I was wondering who would be first to say it was a hoax! How many nails have to be extracted from badly wounded victims before you’re convinced?

    The foyer was packed, so most of the shrapnel, sadly, was absorbed by the victims.

    • Trakkath  May 28, 2017 at 12:59 pm

      All of them ? Must have been a black hole that swallowed them.
      I don´t buy this anymore.
      BTW this picture with the kneecaped lady is this a hint to “Wounded Knee” or just to a broken “Kingship” ?

    • Paedo hunter  May 30, 2017 at 3:14 pm

      well, when our ‘Intelligence’ Services say he was on their watch list then one does wonder the level of intelligence these ‘services’ actually have…..or is it just ‘spin’ a la Tony Blair?…..or are they conveniently overlooked …..like the returning jihadis they know of….but do nothing about…….I suppose they need a good excuse to put cctv on every corner of every town and village…..yet nothing gets picked up by these cctv’s…..or does it?

    Terrorism is a heinous crime and a tradgegy to witness live or in the media, whether it was done to the UK or by the UK.

  9. Gary Kraut  May 27, 2017 at 2:52 pm

    Hello Michael,
    just for the record, there is a big difference between chutzpah and bullshit. Chutzpah is strictly Jewish territory, for example, if “Lucky Pull – It – Larry” writes here it would be best to declare war on Germany, people will grin, keep it in the back of their mind, and wait. He is a Jew, its chutzpah, his chutzpah, and it is all in good Jewish type of spirit.
    You are not a Jew, and when you, Michael, write the same thing, it sounds dumb, not at all like chutzpah. Remember, you haven´t got chutzpah. It sounds dumb because you can not declare war on Germany simply because you are already at war with Germany for the past 72 years. You guys never signed a peace agreement with Germany. Michael, Germany is already all yours. The Brits have had for the last 72 years a permanent average of between 50.000 to 100.000 military men stationed in Germany. Totally free of cost to the Brits, full board! That´s how bad the Germans are. And I thought you were the expert?! So, if you whinge and whine incessantly about the Germans infiltrating London and the UK, then what are your 50.000 men plus intelligence do all day long in Germany? Are they perhaps playing with each other, or are they being trained in bombing schools and civilians and in how to grow poppy? This type of stuff you write Michael, simply sounds dumb.

      Part 2
      But help is on its way. You have lived in Australia. Australia has a fair lot of deadly animals and insects. One of the most lethal up North is the “blue bottle” a jelly fish which at least gives you enough time to say a short prayer and Amen before you depart. Another toxic one, a slow brain killer is the so called Queensland dunny fly (dunny = outside toilet). Its Latin name is “scheissereia – draussena”, discovered by a German, ironically. Now, you have lived and worked in Queensland and this obnoxious little feller is known to be able to slowly ruin your brain. Some who have been stung run around thinking they are Hitler or Netanyahoo and want to start wars. A sting is difficult to detect, but your “Tropical Institute” in London will discover it, even if you have been stung as a youth. Luckily for you Michael, there is a good doctor in this world by the name of Jim Humble. He also found a cure for malaria and even aids. Good luck.

    • Eduardo  May 28, 2017 at 5:21 pm

      Gary, I have to disagree. The Queensland dunny fly is completely innocent having caused such a German based trauma in Mr. Shrimpton. Though the local government in Canberra must spend their holidays in Outback Queensland as part of their education program as the majority of MP’s have turned into mini Netanyahoos, well inflated.

  10. brtanner  May 27, 2017 at 1:17 pm

    Respectfully, this is a load of bollocks. Why does VT carry this kind of gross disinfo? With all the obvious crisis actors, cooperation of the police and emergency services, lack of paramedical teams and gurneys, lack of people being put into ambulances, lack of ambulances at hospitals and clinics, lack of any photo or video evidence of anything resembling a powerful bomb blast, lack of evidence of shrapnel damage in the “foyer,” etc. ad nauseum, this was an utter hoax.

    • Alex__B  May 27, 2017 at 4:08 pm

      I think VT does it for kicks, once in a while. Just to underline the contrast between the real journalism and the one based on “paper tolerates everything” approach (i.e., the official one).

  11. JS  May 27, 2017 at 5:39 am

    Trump at G7 this week. Of the G7, the only country not plagued by terrorists is Japan, for the simple reason that they allow virtually no asylum seekers. The EU and North America have lots of trouble because of the asylum seekers, many of them ISIS. The PM of Poland, she said some sage things about Manchester attack. Btw, I have seen a map of the terrorist attacks in Europe. Poland, no attacks so far, because they refuse to take the jihadis in, even though EU tries to force it. But Poland lost some citizens in the Manchester attack. They have a right to be po’d!

  12. Carola  May 26, 2017 at 7:42 pm

    Thank you for your article. Maybe I am wrong, but I still believe that the Manchester attack was planned by satan-worshipping zionists. (Perhaps there are a few Rothschilds living in Germany?) It has some of the hallmarks of satan worshippers – such as the numerology for example.

    This attack took place on the 22nd of the month at 22:33 hours (perhaps he was aiming for 22:22 and was a few minutes late?), with 22 people dead and the bomber just happened to be 22 years old. Satanists love double numbers like double 1’s and double 2’s. For example 9-11, and later the 3-11 tsunami and 11-22 for John F Kennedy’s assassination, and several more.

    There are some very evil zionists who want to destroy Europe from within and are sponsoring the Daesh terrorists in Syria and elsewhere. Notice that Daesh has never attacked Israel, and in fact some of their injured soldiers were treated in Israeli hospitals.

    Jeremy Corbyn advocates for and supports Palestine. He also has a lot of support among young people. This terrorist attack specifically targeted young people, and may serve to scare many of these younger people into voting for May’s party.

  13. Trakkath  May 26, 2017 at 6:37 pm

    Nothing but BS

  14. Edward Dodge  May 26, 2017 at 6:35 pm

    I have to admit, Mr. Shrimpton, you are the only writer I’ve read that consistently makes the German connection to all these global calamities, and you do so with such conviction. What are we all missing? Are we that far behind you? Others may single out the global banking cabal, the Satanists, the narcos, the Zios, the Bushes, or the Rothschilds, but not you.
    Whole heartedly agree with your sentiment on the passing of Sir Roger Moore. I first remember him as Bret and Bart’s British cousin on the American western series, “Maverick”.

    • Eduardo  May 26, 2017 at 9:07 pm

      Maybe M. Shrimpton was killed by the evil Germans when being a baby but something went awfully wrong by the looks of it. No offence intended Michael.
