BREAKING Governor Cuomo Deploys Additional National Guard in New York City


This is a developing story. Return to this post for updates.

UPDATE 1

Statement from Cuomo:

“Over the last two days, explosive devices have been found at three New York locations that we are aware of, and State Police are assisting Secret Service and other relevant federal and local authorities in this ongoing investigation.

“Public safety is our number one priority, and we are taking all necessary precautions to ensure the safety and security of New Yorkers. Out of an abundance of caution, I am deploying 100 additional National Guard soldiers and directing State law enforcement to double security at vital assets across New York, including LaGuardia and JFK, mass transit systems, and bridges and tunnels. The bridges and tunnels include the Staten Island crossings, the George Washington, RFK, Verrazzano-Narrows, Bronx-Whitestone, Throgs Neck, Henry Hudson, Marine Parkway-Gil Hodges Memorial, Cross Bay Veterans Memorial and Mario M. Cuomo Bridges and the Lincoln, Holland, Hugh L. Carey and Queens Midtown Tunnels.

“As New Yorkers, we understand the dangers of our times and — just as we have done since the first bombing of the World Trade Center 25 years ago — we will stand up and stand together against them.

“New Yorkers have never succumbed to fear or intimidation, and today will be no different. We are tough, we are resilient and we will not allow terrorist thugs to change the way we lead our lives. We will not let terrorism win — not today, not ever.”

UPDATE 2

This is just one minor example of what I meant by the current Civil War resulting in the expansion of government.

  1. Wasn't this the plot in an episode of 'House of Cards'?
    Deploy the troops and keep the massive safe before the vote... Fake terror plots are the new campaign ads.

  2. "...and we will not allow terrorist thugs to change the way we lead our lives."

    Au contraire, mon ami! New Yorkers have already let Albany change the way they lead their lives. Note that the Soros and Clinton houses are in Westchester County, not New York City, but what the heck, what's the use of having these troops if you can't use them?

    This seems like that Bruce Willis and Denzel Washington movie, "The Siege."

  3. My hunch is that Leftist Progressives are behind these bombs, with the purpose of setting-up the Conservative Right to appear as violent extremists---much like some fake instances of extremism in the past, where leftist nutjobs were caught spray-painting swastikas or the n-word on college campuses, or reporting falsely that they were victims of racist assaults, etc.
    False flags, by lefties trying to influence the upcoming election...

  4. Whatever the motivations of the bombers the government gains power and freedom loses. While the active hoi polloi fight each other the passive look to the government for security. Everyone but those in the power centers loses.

  5. Isn't NY a sanctuary city and any criminal illegal can stay? I guess he had to create some drama to feel important.
