PANIC: Rep. Just Revealed Officials Expecting THIS Terror Attack On City July 4th

On Wednesday, Rep. Peter King, R-N.Y., told Fox News host Megyn Kelly that nuclear terror threats are “a big concern” in New York City headed into the Fourth of July weekend.

While the FBI and the U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS) issued a warning for Americans after terror attacks were carried out on three separate continents over the past week either by the Islamic State of Iraq and and Syria (ISIS) or someone inspired by their cause, White House press secretary Josh Earnest said Monday: “it is not uncommon for these kinds of joint information bulletins to be issued in advance of the Fourth of July.”

I can also say that there is no specific credible intelligence to indicate any threats against celebrations over the Fourth of July weekend.

But King dismissed Earnest’s statement Wednesday on The Kelly File. “This is for real. I’ve been at the meetings,” said King, who serves on the House Homeland Security and Intelligence committees.

I’ve gotten the briefings going back two and three weeks, how concerned they were. And you would not see the manhole covers being tightened down. You would not see the cameras being used the way they are. The nuclear explosive devices in New York, detection devices being used the way they are.The extra personnel being put on, the snipers, all of that. That wouldn’t be there if this was just a routine warning.

Kelly asked King if he said “nuclear,” which he confirmed. “It’s a big concern here in New York explosives, you know, the dirty bomb,” King said. “That’s why so much money has been put into explosive detection devices here in New York aimed at nuclear ones. The dirty bomb is a real concern we’ve always had here in New York.”

In a separate interview earlier in the day with CNN’s Wolf Blitzer, King said he would not be seeking the 2016 Republican presidential nomination after previously dipping his feet in the water.

I would love to have the opportunity to run, to go all the way, and I think I can more than compete with any of those that are in there, but the reality is as far as money … the fact that I do have a full-time job now on the intelligence and homeland security committees – it’s just not in the cards. I don’t want to be taking up other people’s time. I don’t want to have 19, 20 candidates, whatever it’s going to be.

Watch: That Flag Burning By Leftists In NYC Backfires Big Time As Proud Patriots Show Up, Do This

They got a lot of attention on Facebook and Fox News for the protest they planned at a Revolutionary War memorial park in Brooklyn; but when it came time for Wednesday night’s public burning of American flags, these radical leftists’ bark turned out to be much worse than their bite. In fact, you might say the anarchist group was virtually toothless in its attempt to express their disdain and disgust with an America they see as a racist, imperialist, terrorist nation. And the bite was, ironically, on them.

As the NBC affiliate in New York City reported about the planned protest by the group calling itself Disarm NYPD, only a few anti-flag agitators showed up, and they were far outnumbered by counter-protestors, patriotic military veterans, police, and media types intent on getting pictures of the event that was expected to be much bigger.

The TV report noted: “Several activists still showed up Wednesday evening to burn both the Confederate and American flags. A handful of people, their faces covered by scarves, set fire to one American flag near a grassy area, and then set fire to a Confederate flag and an American flag by the monument.”

Todd Starnes of Fox News Radio was at the event to see how the much-talked-about flag burning backfired as patriotic flag protectors turned out to stand firm in honor of Old Glory:

WATCH: What This Garbage Man/Former Marine Just Did To A Robber Gives Him Instant Hero Status

It could be one of the best lines ever by a city worker who’s credited with foiling a would-be robbery at a convenience store — a rookie sanitation worker (garbage man) transitioning into a new career after serving as a U.S. Marine. When asked about his stepping up to take down the assailant, the fast-acting worker quipped: “This was just another day taking out the trash.”

The New York Daily News reports on the quick thinking and decisive action by 44-year-old Curtis Jackson of Brooklyn, who said his instincts took over when he saw a man with his hand in his pocket as though holding onto a gun. Jackson reportedly charged the man, took him to the floor, and kept him pinned until police arrived at the Manhattan 7-11 store.

“The weapon in assailant Nicholas Mecina’s pocket turned out to be a marker, but Jackson wrestled the 47-year-old homeless man to the ground while his partner called 911.”

The two city workers told the newspaper they had stopped in the store to use the restroom. But their intent to “rest” turned into an assist in an arrest, as you can see from clicking above to watch a cellphone video of the incident.

These Radical Leftists Just Announced Plans For A ‘July 4th’ Event That Will Have You Outraged

As many millions of Americans proudly fly and honor Old Glory in celebration of the Fourth of July, there’s a group of radical leftists who plan to do something else altogether with the Stars and Stripes — burn them in a public display of disdain and disgust with what they say the American flag stands for.

As TheBlaze reports, a group calling itself Disarm NYPD has launched a new effort with a Facebook page called “Burn the American Flags.” Claiming that the American flag is as much a symbol of “oppression” as the Confederate flag, this group is determined to make a spectacle of flag burning in a Brooklyn park on July 1st, in advance of the nation’s celebration of Independence Day.

TheBlaze article notes: “Organizers said accused Charleston shooter Dylann Roof wasn’t an ‘isolated actor,’ but a ‘product of a consistent pattern of state-sponsored terrorism and radicalized dehumanization in America.’ The event [in Fort Greene Park] originally was aimed at burning the Confederate flag, but later changed to focus on the stars and stripes.”

Below is a promotional piece posted by Disarm NYPD inviting people to the flag-burning event:

Lest you think that our post on this group and its planned event is somehow promoting the disgusting disrespect being shown to the symbol of a nation that protects these radicals’ right to mount this provocative protest, we believe it’s important to show how ultra-liberal causes become mainstreamed. The scheduled flag-burning spectacle is but one example of how the Stars and Stripes is becoming the next target of ideologues who want to fundamentally transform America and the way its own citizens feel about the country.

What so often starts on the fringes this way creeps into mainstream discussions that eventually “legitimize” ideas once considered outrageous and unthinkable.

Western Journalism has reported on Rush Limbaugh’s prediction that the American flag would be targeted — a prediction borne out of the call from Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan to tear down the flag from positions of prominence.

In a recent Facebook post further explaining its belief that the American flag is a symbol of “oppression and genocide,” the group sponsoring the planned flag burning on Wednesday night tried to capitalize on the publicity generated by the event that will, no doubt, turn the stomachs of so many patriotic Americans:

We find it a sign of the times that people can care so much about a piece of cloth, while at the same time be so quiet about black churches being burned all over the country. Perhaps this is the great difference between us and the so-called “patriots”. While they express their loyalty to symbols, we express our loyalty to the lives of the oppressed.

By the way, there’s no support offered for the claim about “black churches being burned all over the country.”

ALERT: Agency Finds This Grocery Chain Guilty Of Massively Overcharging Customers

Whole Foods Market, which usually makes news on social media for opening yet another store, is making headlines again. This time, not everyone is smiling.

New York City’s Department of Consumer Affairs (DCA) reported Wednesday that in an ongoing investigation, the agency found systematic overcharging of Whole Foods customers. The investigation was primarily focused on prepackaged food.

In a statement, DCA said: “The overcharges ranged from [80 cents] for a package of pecan panko to $14.84 for a package of coconut shrimp.”

DCA Commissioner Julie Menin stated: “Our inspectors tell me this is the worst case of mislabeling they have seen in their careers.”

The DCA tested 80 packages from differing products and discovered all the packages had mislabeled weights. The agency also stated that 89 percent of the tested packages did not line up with the federal standard for the maximum amount that an individual package is allowed to deviate from the actual weight.

Whole Foods fired back, stating: “We disagree with the DCA’s overreaching allegations and we are vigorously defending ourselves. We cooperated fully with the DCA from the beginning until we disagreed with their grossly excessive monetary demands. Despite our requests to the DCA, they have not provided evidence to back up their demands nor have they requested any additional information from us, but instead have taken this to the media to coerce us.”

This is not the first such incident involving Whole Foods overpricing. In 2012, the company was forced by a court to pay $800,000 in penalties.

Whole Foods is reportedly not the only culprit in this latest investigation by the DCA. The DCA’s investigation into grocers in New York City included 120 grocery stores. Seventy-seven percent of those stores were cited for overpricing violations.
