Text messages obtained from the phone of Nice basilica terrorist Brahim Aouissaoui revealed the Tunisian illegal immigrant allegedly came to France specifically to commit an attack, and his original target was Paris. The more than 2,000 text messages sent during Brahim Aouissaoui’s voyage from Tunisia to Nice — via the migrant landing hotspot of Lampedusa — reveal that he was in contact with someone in Paris. On October 25th, just three days before his terrorist attack that killed three people , he had written from Rome: “Tomorrow I will leave for France, the land of the disbelievers and dogs.” After arriving in Nice on October 27th, the 22-year-old Tunisian wandered around the area of the city’s main train station and sent a text to a friend in Paris, saying: “I’m still in Nice, I want to come to where you are, to the Eiffel Tower, but the ticket is 150 euros [£130/$180].” Samia Maktouf, a lawyer representing the family of one of the victims, said the text messages show that … [Read more...] about Mobile Phone of Nice Church Terrorist Reveals He Planned to Go to Paris

This flimsy charge of “monopoly behavior” by the EU is becoming standard practice as Germany, France and others continue to fall technologically behind and their citizens become rapid purchasers of Silicon Valley products and services. The move by the EU is a classic shakedown — the money it wants is akin to imposing a foreign tariff on American products. This could cost U.S. shareholders hundreds of billions of dollars . Europe has similar suits against another trillion-dollar American company, Google. So the U.S. government is rushing to defend America’s crown-jewel companies that have added hundreds … [Read more...] about Why isn’t Washington defending American companies from foreign assaults?
