Undercover Video Reveals Possible Domestic Terrorist Attack at Inauguration
An undercover video uncovers a terrorist group planning to carry out attacks against the Trump inauguration by targeting one of the post-swearing-in balls at a Washington DC hotel. The alleged domestic terrorists say they intend to block the fire extinguishing system and release butyric acid on the assembled guests. Butyric acid is a carboxylic acid with a very strong odor. The substance is corrosive to the eyes, the skin and the respiratory tract. “Inhalation of butyric acid may result in soreness of throat, coughing, a burning sensation, and labored breathing. Ingestion of the acid may result in abdominal pain, shock, and collapse. Physical exposure to the acid may result in pain, blistering and skin burns, while exposure to the eyes may result in pain, severe deep burns and loss of vision.”
The substance “has also been used as a stink bomb by Sea Shepherd Conservation Society to disrupt Japanese whaling crews, as well as by anti-abortion protesters to disrupt abortion clinics. ” (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Butyric_acid)
The video has been made available to the FBI, Secret Service and DC Metropolitan Police.

DNC Chair Candidate Rep. Keith Ellison Met with Hamas Fundraiser Mohammed al-Hanooti
Last week Chuck Ross at The Daily Caller reported on the appearance of Ellison at the Omeish campaign event, noting that Omeish had previously called for Palestinians to follow “the jihad way” against Israel.
Given that, it’s no surprise to find al-Hanooti, who styled himself as “grand mufti” of Washington D.C. and whom FBI documents identify as a top U.S. fundraiser for Hamas, at the campaign fundraiser.
Pictures posted to Flickr by Omeish show Ellision and al-Hanooti chatting at the event.
Mohammed al-Hanooti has been identified by federal prosecutors and top counterterrorism officials as an enthusiastic supporter of Hamas — serving as one of its top fundraisers — and also as an active supporter of terrorism and extremist Islamic ideology for several decades.
He also holds the rare distinction of not only being named by prosecutors as an unindicted co-conspirator in the Holy Land Foundation trial, the largest terror-finance case in American history, but also of being listed as a conspirator in the trial of “Blind Sheik” Omar Abdel Rahman for the 1993 World Trade Center bombing and the planned follow-up attack on New York City landmarks. FBI agents have also testified that al-Hanooti was a participant in an infamous 1993 meeting in Philadelphia of senior Hamas leaders in the U.S.

Trump calls NATO ‘obsolete’ and predicts more countries will leave EU
“It’s obsolete, first because it was designed many, many years ago,” Trump said of NATO, according to a write-up in Bloomberg. “Secondly, countries aren’t paying what they should,” and NATO “didn’t deal with terrorism.”
The comments will undoubtedly concern America’s allies in Europe after Trump has voiced support for strengthening the United States’ relationship with Russia after he comes into office. It may cause some discord inside his own administration, as retired Marine Gen. James Mattis said during his secretary of defense confirmation hearing this week that Russia’s goal is to destroy NATO.

Trump’s offer to Russia: an end to sanctions for nuclear arms cut – London Times

Criticizing previous U.S. foreign policy in an interview published on Monday, he described the U.S.-led invasion of Iraq in 2003 as possibly the gravest error in the history of the United States and akin to “throwing rocks into a beehive”.
