New York City Attacker Identified As Sayfullo Habibullaevic Saipov

Saipov reportedly left a letter at the scene pledging allegiance to Islamic State.

The New York City attacker has been identified by authorities as Sayfullo Habibullaevic Saipov. Saipov is a 29-year-old from Uzbekistan who came to the United States in 2010.

It is being reported that Saipov left a letter at the scene pledging allegiance to the Islamic State.

Witnesses have said Saipov yelled “Allahu Akbar” after mowing down bicyclists, which was confirmed by authorities.

As noted by security analyst Fran Townsend, “Saipov came from Uzbekistan, where there is an extremist organization called the IMU, the Islamic Movement of Uzbekistan, Townsend reports. Established in 1998, IMU moved from being an affiliate of al Qaeda to ISIS in 2015, Townsend said. Both al Qaeda and ISIS have talked about car attacks.”

Trump orders stronger extreme vetting in wake of attack

In the wake of the attack, U.S. President Donald Trump says he has ordered Homeland Security to increase “Extreme Vetting.”

The White House also released a formal statement:

Once again, we are seeing the continued threat of radical Islamist terrorism, and all across the western world we must demand that our leaders take tough measures to keep us safe, and make certain that this never becomes the “new normal.”

We must be clear that we will never give up our safety and security to radical Islamist terrorists.

I cannot understand why he was not Fatally Shot! He is now in hospital and a recovery is expected. This TERRORIST just killed 8 Innocent Americans and should NEVER be receiving Medical Attention in a Hospital. He has cost the American Government too Much already and will continue to cost the American Government Millions after being put in Prison. Also, you cannot put a Price on the People’s lives that he has taken. This POS should have been six feet under.


And this is exactly what Trudeau, on behalf of his globalist masters, wants to happen in Canada. He is destroying Canada’s economy, financial supporting terrorists, ruining the lives of federal employees via the Phoenix pay system (myself included) and of course allowing countless possible terrorists into the country unchecked and unmonitored. We are all a Lot less safe with Trudeau. I want someone like Donald J Trump to lead our country, in Gods name.


this is what truduh! wants to bring in to Canada…


Dee, it isn’t what he wants, it is what he defends and rewards.

I hope this Mohammedan terrorist doesn’t claim that he intended to illegally enter Canada after this attack because Turdough would be down there as fast as the taxpayer funded jet would go in order to write another huge cheque. So as not to waste a perfectly good photo op, Turdough would likely stop by the Vogue offices for another centerfold picture and bring this potential Liberal voter back with him.

And is anyone surprised? Trudeau, of course, will fall back on his ‘diversity is our strength’ wording as soon as we experience something similar. Of course, I, along with many others, are simply surprised that this man(?) is an avowed terrorist. After all, who could have come to such a conclusion at this point in history? At least Trump has the correct response, something that we will never see — even if we have a similar or worse event take place here. We have Prime(?) Minister who not only would never consider properly vetting newcomers but would, in fact, reduce… Read more »

Pretend to be a crazed Islamist for a moment… choose (a) enter the U.S. and be “ extreme vetted” or (b) enter Canada and be unvetted… such a hard decision…
