New York bombs “were both shrapnel pressure cooker devices”



The bomb detonated on Saturday in New York, and another device found nearby, were both shrapnel-filled pressure cookers – similar to the bombs used at the 2013 Boston marathon, reports say.

Citing top law enforcement officials, the New York Times said the two devices used flip phones and Christmas lights to detonate the explosive inside.

The blast, in the Chelsea area of Manhattan, injured 29 people.

Officials say it was a terrorist act, but no motive or suspect has been found

The second device was found four blocks from the site of the explosion and was removed safely. Police said it was destroyed in a controlled explosion late on Sunday.

The two devices were said to be different in design from the pipe bomb that detonated earlier on Saturday on the route of a charity race in New Jersey. That explosion caused no injuries.

New York mayor Mayor Bill de Blasio said: “Was it a political motivation? A personal motivation? We do not know.”

“We know there was a bombing. We know it’s a very serious incident. But we have a lot more work to do to be able to say what kind of motivation was behind this.

“All possible theories of what’s happened here and how it connects will be looked at but we have no specific evidence at this point in time.”

Mr Cuomo said: “Whoever placed these bombs – we will find them and they will be brought to justice.”

Some 1,000 extra security personnel are being deployed to New York’s transport hubs, police said.

The page, which had a rainbow flag in its banner, said the bombs are a protest against the oppression of the LGBT community— even though they were left in one of New York’s most gay-friendly neighborhoods.

“You probably have all seen the news by now, the explosives detonated in New York City, that was me,” the first post said.

“I did it because I cannot stand society. I cannot live in a world where homosexuals like myself as well as the rest of the LGBTQ+ community are looked down upon by society.”

It also singled out Donald Trump, saying, “I am not going to live in a country where it is OK to have a misogynist, xenophobic, racist Islamophobic, republican candidate running for President of The United States!”

In a second post, the author wrote, “I don’t know exactly how I feel about taking human lives.”

“I suppose I’m just going to have to move forward knowing that what I am doing had a purpose and will in fact make a difference,” it said.

“I’ll keep you all posted.”

Both posts were published Sunday.

NYPD Sources: Authorities Find Image Showing Man ‘Dropping’ Something Near Dumpster Before Chelsea Explosion

NYPD sources said authorities have found an image in surveillance video showing a man “dropping” something near a dumpster prior to the blast in Chelsea that injured over two dozen people.

NYPD sources told CBS2 the person has not been identified, but they want to talk to him and others seen on video as potential witnesses in the area prior to the blast on West 23rd Street.

Police also have images from the second scene where a pressure cooker device failed to detonate on West 27th Street. Sources told CBS2 there are images of a man carrying what appears to be some type of case. They are looking to identify that individual as a potential witness and stopped short of calling him a suspect.

Police are using facial recognition software linked to criminal mug shot databases to try and identify.

NYPD sources also told CBS2 it is too early to tell if the devices are connected, despite reports linking the bombings in New York City and Seaside Park, New Jersey.

Sources said that there is no video or forensic evidence to support the theory that the same person was responsible for the bombing in Chelsea on Saturday night that injured 29 people and the pipe bombs in Seaside Park, New Jersey.

However, they have not ruled out a possible connection as both devices used cellphones as detonators, but that is common in explosive devices.

A federal official told CBS News they are aware of a page claiming responsibility for the bombing in Chelsea.

Authorities told CBS2 they are investigating but see the claim as an unlikely motive and more of someone just trying to take advantage of the opportunity.


not sure what the alleged rainbow flag bomber was trying to achieve..his manifesto makes no sense..i suspect its nothing..but these explosions and other devices found are all connected..lightning doesnt strike twice in the same spot..its all connected..but who is it?

  1. timing once again:
    a. 18-09-2016 = 1+8 = 9 / 0+9 =/ 2+0+1+6 = 9…999
    b. those bombings are the central news in the US, but not the bombing of the syrian army in the midst of a cease fire and so helping ISIS…how convenient…

  2. New York bombing suspect charged after police shootout

    The prime suspect in the bombing in New York and attempted bombings in New Jersey has been charged with numerous offences after being captured during a bloody police shootout.

    Ahmad Khan Rahami was charged with five counts of attempted murder, second-degree unlawful possession of a weapon and second-degree possession of a weapon for an unlawful purpose.

    Rahami, 28, was shot and captured during a shootout with police in the New Jersey town of Linden. He was taken to a hospital, where he underwent surgery, an official said earlier.

  3. something don’t add up one more time we can’t comment cos we don’t follow it from the get go
    strange tell plp inChelsea to move away from windows only ?

  4. Reblogged this on Scoop Feed.

  5. Well, if you’re still playing the Gotham ‘game’, West Chelsea was on the Dark Knight Rises map…….Strike Zone 5 🙂

    Considering the President refuses to call this an act of terrorism, it’s still a game, in my opinion, that the willing patsies in D.C. and other high places are playing to set up the next banker war.

    • amazing..

    • West Chelsea Hill…nice catch. Cobble Hill, Red Hook, Narrows, Upper West Hill, and Fort Clinton also appear prominently on the map.

      • “Fort Clinton”

      • Hey D good to see you 🙂

        There are street names in that strike zone 5 area that are interesting as well…Mars Venus Jupiter Kennedy Armstrong Samuel Lee Harvey Pluto Saturn Gloria Coffee Tea Flour Salt Apollo Eagle Moon.

        Also Red Hook very interesting. H.P.Lovecraft wrote a short story about it in 1925, ‘The Horror at Red Hook’ and referred to it as ‘as “a maze of hybrid squalor”

        “The idea that black magic exists in secret today, or that hellish antique rites still exist in obscurity, is one that I have used and shall use again. When you see my new tale “The Horror at Red Hook”, you will see what use I make of the idea in connexion with the gangs of young loafers & herds of evil-looking foreigners that one sees everywhere in New York”

        “Lovecraft had moved to New York to marry Sonia Greene a year earlier, in 1924; his initial infatuation with New York soon soured (an experience fictionalized in his short story “He”), in large part due to Lovecraft’s xenophobic attitudes. “Whenever we found ourselves in the racially mixed crowds which characterize New York, Howard would become livid with rage,” Greene later wrote. “He seemed almost to lose his mind.”

        Much of the magical background to the story was lifted from the articles on “Magic” and “Demonology” in the 9th edition of the Encyclopaedia Britannica, written by anthropologist E. B. Tylor.

        Daniel Harms and John Wisdom Gonce note the spell Lovecraft quotes and describes as a “demon evocation”, was actually an incantation used for treasure hunting. The use of the Yezidi as devil-worshipping villains seems to have been inspired by E. Hoffmann Price’s “The Stranger from Kurdistan”

        I’m convinced these areas are part of a redevelopment, perhaps having to do with ports and transportation and a re-arranging of the city. I believe it was the Cobble Hill area that was hit by Hurricane Sandy but will have to check again to be certain.

        Anyway, it seems to me there is some black magick involved in much of this, a scapegoat needed along with a blood sacrifice. As crazy as it sounds, I don’t doubt for a minute the hidden hands behind these events still believe they need a ritual to make their dreams come true, whether it be real or symbolic, as in crisis actors etc.

  6. my favorite coffee spot in manhattan, recently closed, was one block from the chelsea bomb.

    i was traveling this weekend, and the place i was staying had tv including CNN, so i watched this all go down live in the news cycle.

    first they said there were reports that more than one person could be seen in the surveillance videos placing devices.

    then they said they had five people in custody.

    then that suddenly went away, and they sent out an alert searching for rahami.

    then a cops see a guy ///asleep in a doorway///, rousts him an realizes it’s rahami. they have a gunfight, and the cop gets hit in the abdomen but is saved by his vest.

    the suspect ///slowly walks/// away and keeps walking ///for a quarter mile/// before he is confronted again, shot, and injured.

    a few hours after this, the authorities announce that they aren’t looking for anyone else. they say they are confident that rahami is the only one involved.

    here is an example of what i am talking about:

    “In addition to Rahami, CBS News security analyst Fran Townsend reports two others were seen in surveillance tape handling explosives but it is unclear if they played any role in the attack.”

    If you are on video “handling explosives” … seems pretty clear you do have a role in the attack.

    • what a web they weave when they attempt to deceive..

    • Thanks xxx , that’s pretty powerful info when one compares it to the Aurora incident where people within the theater which was the screening of the Dark Knight Rises movie said there were other men involved in that shooting besides Holmes.

  7. meanwhile…

    • “And while we have heard numerous victims say Adan was shouting “God is great” in Arabic and demanding to know if shoppers were Muslim or not, the family told Yussuf he was not particularly religious and that they did not know of any ties he had to ISIS or radical groups.”

      and he died at the end…what a surprise…Not.

      I’m glad I don’t live in the US…everybody could be in Adan’s place from now on…

  8. Pearl Harbor incidents .
    The LGBT community could not be treated better anywhere else in the world than in America .

  9. Reblogged this on World Peace Forum.

  10. It just occurred to me after reading the H.P. Lovecraft article and how he felt about people who were unlike himself, the significance of Hillary’s remarks calling Trump supporters ‘Deplorables’ is exactly what the Dutch Jews coming from England and who settled on the East Coast bringing people from other nations to enslave and to build it for them really think of all the people/goyim who are not in their bloodline realm.

    Hillary is of the same, but lower in status realm as those slave owners, yet she transferred her guilt over to Trump who has openly spoken of the immigration issues. If anything, Hillary and Bill Clinton are directly involved in the enslavement of people from other countries using their Clinton Global Initiative as the ‘catch’. They are Slave Traders, using other people’s money and setting the missions up with grandiose talk of demonocracy and a better way of life for those they bring to America and for those they intend to do the building of the New World they are creating.

    The Dutch Settlement Scheme – Reinhardt hit the nail on the head and is once again correct.

    The leaders of these other countries are directly involved, so it is not just America doing this, as it is a Grand Plan with many willing participants whether they are of the upper echelon or just greedy psychopaths with no regard for human life.

  11. You know me – I’m not prone to conspiracy theories (cough). But, I noticed some weird things about the pressure cooker bomb attacks that took place in New York City and New Jersey this weekend and the subsequent arrest of the alleged perpetrator.

    Some things just don’t add up. Trust me, you won’t even need to don your tinfoil because none of this is outrageous.

    • The culprit was just hanging around, asleep in a doorway like a homeless person, waiting to get busted. Rahami was spotted sleeping in a shop doorway and police were called. He shot at an officer and then ambled off down the street, shooting at a police car before being wounded and taken into custody. Now, I have two major issues with this. What kind of terrorist decides to curl up and take a nap in a shop doorway in an area he knows the police will be looking for him? Secondly, we all know the police have hair triggers…children get shot for holding a BB gun, the caregiver of an autistic man got shot while laying down, and an unarmed drivers got shot in front of his kid…but this guy sets off bombs, shoots two officers, shoots up a police car, and then wanders down the road holding a gun and he only gets wounded in the shootout?

      uh huh..
