BREAKING: New York City Receives “Credible” Terror Threat Days Before Christmas

nyc

New York City officials received a credible terror threat days ahead of the Christmas holiday.

Officials said the threat is not specific and could take place in several major US cities.
PIX 11 reported:

A “credible threat” has been lodged against New York City, days ahead of Christmas and during an especially busy time of the year when tourists flock to the Big Apple, law enforcement sources told PIX11 News Tuesday.

Top NYPD brass including Commissioner William Bratton held an emergency meeting Tuesday to discuss the threat and their response to it, sources said. Few details were released about the nature of the threat.

A federal law enforcement source said the threat is not specific and could take place in several major U.S. cities.

All New York City police officers received a bulletin Tuesday afternoon outlining the department’s tactical plan and warning officers to stay vigilant, according to sources. That internal memo mentioned social media being used as a tactic and that a possible attack could come without warning.

Expect to see increased police presence at iconic locations across multiple boroughs, including Times Square, St. Patrick’s Cathedral for Midnight Mass on Thursday, and Barclays Center in Brooklyn, marking the first time a threat has sparked a swell of police presence in a borough other than Manhattan.

    Barry, has a gun pointed at every AmericanCitizens head, and his moslem brotherhood are caressing the trigger….

    Theyre just trying to mess up commerce during the holidays. A couple of well placed bombs would stop that chatter pronto.

  • ridgerunner

    Trump has probably driven Obama into the depths of depression. Down deep, Obama knows he has failed.

    Isis is contained.

    Shelter in place.

    If NYC gets attacked again, you can thank the liberals that always side as trying to Coexist with muslims. That does not work and never will. Merry Christmas.

  • Mike in Illinois

    When government finally admits the real threat, all the people running government will be telling Civilians to arm themselves and to act in the moment when muzzies try to light off their little jihad party.

    Until then, government stooges are hedging their own liabilities trying to escape responsibility for things they know are coming eventually but are unwilling to openly admit are coming eventually.

    Stop buying the nonsense, arm yourselves and go about your life….ready willing and able to put a terrorist down right where they stand.

  • Mike in Illinois

    Who is worse?
    The fools saying it or the fools doing it?

    One of the most liberal cities in America. It seems that they never learn a lesson from the past. And with Obama as president almost anything could happen. Sadly.

    “““`
    HERE is a great example for what I am talking about:

    I found myself wondering the other day if Obama would actually deploy his drone force online to help defeat Trump….worried about Trump coming in to the Oval Office for the President-President Elect meeting that always takes place. Obama is probably having nightmares about Trump opening up all those sealed files. lmao. Trump is absolutely living in Obam’s head rent free right about now.

  • Mike in Illinois

    Hey, leave blacklivesmatter chicago magnificent mile protests out of this! 😉 Just playin

  • Mahdi Al-Dajjal

    I’m sorry but I don’t have much sympathy for a city full of rabid Leftists most of whom refuse to equate islam and terrorism and who elected a devout communist as their Mayor.

  • Mike in Illinois

    Update: Move along now. Nothing to see here, folks.

  • Mike in Illinois

    Me either. Gluttony is called a deadly sin for a reason.

  • ridgerunner

    Trump has called Obama more names in the past 6 months than Ryan and McConnell have together in 7 years. I would love to see Obama and Trump on the same stage. I flat guarantee you that Obama give his intimidation away via his body language.

  • livedwell

    I think this alert has been removed.

  • RestoreAmerica

    The liberal NYC morons that have priorities like this will be the first to krap their pants when something happens. This is why you do not elect community agitators as your President or elect fools like DIBlasio as your Mayor.
    Good luck NYC, you may need it.

  • Noreen Koselke Gelopulos

    Pretty clear why the obama’s flew off to Hawaii…they are aware of what is going to happen…

  • Mike in Illinois

    Heck he just got scared all the way to Hawaii.

  • tham

    Did this threat come from the White House?

  • EbolaJenkins

    I think Mr. Qaddafi once had a small case of that… outside in a street across from some Middle-Eastern-Food restaurant… at the hands of angry citizens… no?…

  • tham

    That needs to be challenged in court. The country needs a huge fund for lawyers to take these commies to court with no let up. Doesn’t even matter who wins, just bleed them.

  • zoobreath

    If you shelter in place you’re just showing your Islamophobia……take your gutting like a true progressive would. You know……screaming for someone to do something as you soil yourself.

    one way to get rid of closet communists is after President Trump takes office arrest individuals that gave his oldness bernie mr. honeymoon in the soviet union money!

  • whynoborders

    Is it still women, or is it woperson now?

  • PinkPigs

    Ut-Oh ultra liberal NYers! You must be slacking on fighting terrorism….with your Hug and Love a terrorist program.

    Get out there……and start your hugging campaign and make them go away.

  • PinkPigs

    In a round about way….I am sure.

  • dlink

    Muslims definitely want to do their terror attacks on or close to Christmas to send a message to Christians, which is the same reason the San Bernardino terrorists shot up a Christmas party. I would be surprised if their was not a terror attack at or close to Christmas.

  • PVC1234

    Gee, I wonder what group of people are behind the threat? I know, I shouldn’t jump to conclusions.

  • S. Hall

    Cracker — too right. One good thing is that Trump has forced everyone to see the truth. We will be more careful because we have to be. Can’t count on our Govt to make us secure.

  • S. Hall

    Ridge I think down deep Obama blames us for everything that’s gone wrong with this country. He still thinks HE walks on water. 10 More months.

  • IMPACT1

    How about the Electrical Grid…it needs protection too…got that covered Commissioner, Governor, Mayor…?

    I don’t think they want to hit Icons for the sake of hitting icons…they want chaos aND blood…they will hit where it hurts too, that is, IF they can..

    I actually can’t believe I just wrote that…I would have never thought I’d write something like that in my lifetime…

  • IMPACT1

    I would just say ‘hey you’ … ‘yes, you’ (pointing)…just to play it safe…

    I can’t see how that would be ‘unacceptable’…it’s all really nuts if you ask me…these people obiviously have ‘deeper issues’ which are not being addressed…and ‘we are forced’ to ‘indulge them’…what a crazy effed up world..who would have thunk??

  • Jerry Shelton

    I say we let ISIS have New York for a few weeks maybe when the libotards see these gender challenged folks falling from buildings they will wake up and learn two things 1) ISIS is not a JV team. 2) your gender challenge is offensive to some people

    ‘We are facing without a doubt the most severe terrorists situation America has ever faced. President Obama keeps bringing in more refugees only making things worse.’

  • Great idea except they have the resources of the federal government, about 4,000 billion a year. Bleed that.

    Most people dont even realize that Islam was BANNED in the USA back in 1952, This is a VERY VALID LAW sill on the books….Google it!! Islam, by law, is prohibited from US immigration
    The Immigration and Nationality Act passed June 27, 1952 revised the laws relating to immigration, naturalization, and nationality for the United States. That act, which became Public Law 414, established both the law and the intent of Congress regarding the immigration of Aliens to the US and remains in effect today. Among the many issues it covers, one in particular, found in Chapter 2 Section 212, is the prohibition of entry to the US if the Alien belongs to an organization seeking to overthrow the government of the United States by “force, violence, or other unconstitutional means.” This, by its very definition, rules out Islamic immigration to the United States, but this law is being ignored by the White House.Islamic immigration to the US would be prohibited under this law because the Koran, Sharia Law and the Hadith all require complete submission to Islam, which is antithetical to the US government, the Constitution, and to the Republic. All Muslims who attest that the Koran is their life’s guiding principal subscribe to submission to Islam and its form of government. Now the political correct crowd would say that Islamists cannot be prohibited from entering the US because Islam is a religion. Whether it is a religion is immaterial because the law states that Aliens who are affiliated with any “organization” that advocates the overthrow of our government are prohibited

    I agree. NYC and San Fran.

    I know I goof around a lot here but this is a true story. I flew home Monday night (I live in Tampa) from JFK. I got in Sunday, had meetings (I’m a CPA) and got home around 11PM on Monday. No way I was going to stay any longer than needed with Christmas being Friday. My wife tried to get me to cancel but I really needed to meet these people in person. On the good side – we had a great lunch at Napoli 45 near Grand Central Station

  • custom by crunch

    I hear that a Glock makes a great Christmas gift for the ones you love, and the ammo is a great stocking stuffer.

  • Mike in Illinois

    Was a horrible way to meet your maker, that is for sure.
    One thing I notice though is that each dictatorship , whether of one or of many, always ends the same…
