Yesterday the U.K. Daily Mail posted an article about Mohiussunnath Chowdhury, a 27-year-old Uber driver, who attacked police with a sword outside Buckingham Palace while repeatedly screaming Allahu Akbar.
The article reports:
A man who attacked police with a sword outside Buckingham Palace while repeatedly screaming Allahu Akbar has been found not guilty of preparing acts of terrorism.
Mohiussunnath Chowdhury, 27, told jurors his claims to support ISIS were ‘in jest’ and his attack was because he was ‘depressed’ and ‘wanted police to kill him’.
They unanimously acquitted the Uber driver, who lashed out at three officers on August 25 last year.
One of the officers said he had ‘fought for his life’ in the terrifying incident but a jury had failed to reach a verdict in June this year.
After that trial collapsed, Chowdhury was held at Belmarsh Prison – where he passed the time sketching pictures of an Islamist terrorist gunning down a man outside Number 10.
Please follow the link above and read the entire article. It is disturbing. This man is deeply troubled if not radicalized. He needs to be either locked up in jail or in a mental institution. It is a pretty safe bet that if he is allowed to be free he will eventually kill someone.
Yesterday The American Thinker posted an article about the future of Uber and Lyft in New York City. New York’s socialist mayor, Bill de Blasio, has decided that on Tuesday he will move to limit the number of Ubers and Lyfts in New York. If you have ever tried to get a cab in New York City, this is not good news.
The article concludes with the real purpose of the move to limit Uber and Lyft:
What’s more, the bulletin boards of New York are rife with talk of what this really looks like, which is a bid to raise the value of taxi medallions, which the city profits from, and which well-connected political cronies get their hands on. (Such as President Trump’s now-ex lawyer, Michael Cohen, a medallion owner whose net worth should rise.) New Yorkers know that’s always been a corrupt racket.
Quite an achievement for a socialist champion of the little guy, taking away their taxis in the rain. Former Mayor Mike Bloomberg only went after their salt shakers on their diner tables. This guy goes after their transport. Which shows the rest of us again what happens under socialism.
You’ve got to hope they’ll finally get ‘woke’ and start protesting the heck against him, because obviously de Blasio has dismissed the interests of New York’s ever-stressed working class and has just handed them a s– sandwich.
The people who own the medallions will make money and the people trying to find a way to get to Brooklyn will be out of luck.
Allowing Uber and Lyft to operate freely in New York City would provide needed transportation for people as well as possibly keep cab fares from rising totally out of control. That would be the free market at work.
