Massive cargo ship capsizes and catches fire near Georgia, Coast Guard search for crew
Four crew members of the Golden Ray, on its side in St. Simon Sound off the coast of Brunswick, Georgia, were still unaccounted for.

The U.S. Coast Guard is searching for four missing crew members of a cargo ship that capsized and caught fire early Sunday morning near Brunswick, Georgia.
At approximately 2 a.m. ET, Coast Guard Sector Charleston was alerted that motor vessel Golden Ray had capsized in St. Simons Sound, a bay in Brunswick, according to a press release from the Coast Guard.
Multiple Coast Guard resources were deployed to the scene, and 20 people were safely removed, the press release stated. Four remained missing as of 11 a.m. ET.

The ship, which the Coast Guard described as “on fire” and could be seen in photos generating smoke, has a crew of 24 people — 23 crew members and one pilot. The Golden Ray is 656-feet-long and 106-feet-wide.
During a press conference Sunday afternoon, officials said rescue efforts underway, but it was determined going inside the ship to rescue the remaining four people was too risky. Authorities said they would resume their attempts to enter the ship and search for the four missing people once the vessel was stabilized.
Several local agencies were assisting the Coast Guard in its search for the missing crew members, including the Georgia Department of Natural Resources, Moran Towing, SeaTow, Brunswick Bar Pilots Association, and the Glynn County Fire Department.
“We greatly appreciate the immediate response of the US Coast Guard, who are leading the search and rescue,” Griffith V. Lynch, executive director of the Georgia Ports Authority, said.
The ship had just departed Colonels Island Terminal when it capsized.
Following the highly suspicious fire at Notre Dame Cathedral in Paris, France, a man in carried two containers of gasoline and and some lighters inside St. Patrick’s Cathedral in New York City on April 17.
NYPD said Marc Lamparello, 37-year, was arrested after entering St. Patrick’s Cathedral with arson materials, and that he was also arrested on April 15 inside Newark’s Sacred Heart Cathedral when he refused to leave at closing time.
Before entering St. Patrick’s Cathedral, police said Lamparello booked a one-way $2,800 ticket on a 5:20 p.m. Thursday flight to Rome, Italy.
“There doesn’t appear to be any connection to any terrorist group or any terrorist-related intent here,” said John Miller, the New York Police Department’s deputy commissioner of intelligence and counterterrorism.
Upon entering the Cathedral, Lamparello was noticed by a security guard, who said he alerted NYPD counter-terrorism officers who just happened to be on the scene outside of the Cathedral when Lamparello arrived.
Great timing? Coincidence? Do counter terrorism agents always hang out at Cathedrals?
NYPD counter-terrorism officers arrested Lamparello, and he has been charged with attempted arson, reckless endangerment and trespassing.
But it appears as though NYPD is either being dishonest, or their investigators need to brush up on their counter-terrorism knowledge in the post-9/11 era.
You see, after Lamparello was arrested, it was revealed that he is a philosophy instructor who has taught philosophy at New York City’s Lehman and Brooklyn colleges and Seton Hall University in New Jersey. He was described by the media as a Catholic who also served as a music director at a New Jersey Catholic church.
Why would a devout Catholic teacher attempt to burn down one of the most famous Cathedrals during Holy Week, when Catholics around the world were preparing to celebrate Easter while mourning the Notre Dame Cathedral fire in Paris? Why would he book a one-way ticket to a foreign country when he was a college professor?
The only reason someone would book a one way ticket out of the country is if they knew in advance that there was a possibility they weren’t coming back home…
Of course, this doesn’t add up. At all.
So I did some research into Marc Lamparello and started with a basic address search.
A background check into Lamparello that has been verified by law enforcement sources who wish to remain anonymous provides the following address for Lamparello, and lists it as his “most recent address”.
1781 E 16th St, Brooklyn, NY 11229.
Lamparello’s address is the same address as the “Al Madina Mosque” in Brooklyn, New York.
Al Madina Mosque does not have a website or a phone number, but is listed on Google with 12 reviews.
After I discovered that Lamparello’s Brooklyn address was the same address as a mosque, I searched for more recent photographs of Lamparello to see if his physical appearance suggested he had converted to Islam. It’s worth noting that Lamparello also has an address in New Jersey, which is the address the media is primarily focusing on.
Now we know why the media is avoiding his Brooklyn address…
A recent photograph of Lamparello indicates that Lamparello may in fact have converted to Islam. If he did in fact convert to Islam, being a Muslim and leaving Catholicism would explain why he, as a devout Catholic, woke up and decided he was going to attempt to burn down a Cathedral.
On Wednesday, Lamparello was charged with attempted second-degree arson for the April 17 incident, and faces up to 15 years in prison if convicted. The prosecutor, David Stuart, told judge Kevin McGrath during a video arraignment in Manhattan criminal court,
“He (Lamparello) was present at the church the day before. And was present at the church for more than an hour before walking in that night. His intent? “To burn down St. Patrick’s Cathedral,” Mr. Stuart said.
Stuart said investigators obtained phone messages and other materials under a search warrant that indicated Mr. Lamparello intended to start a fire, and had “spent considerable time planning and surveilling the location.”
The facial hair on Lamparello’s face is a classic Sunnah beard, which is worn by Islamic men, particularly Islamic converts.
In previous pictures, Lamparello wore a shorter beard, but the growth and specific way his beard is trimmed indicates that Lamparello may have converted to Islam.
Not only does he have the beard, but Lamparello also has a Zabiba on his forehead. A Zabiba is a prayer bump/ mark on the forehead of some Muslims, due to the friction generated by repeated contact of the forehead with the prayer mat during daily prayers.
While the prosecutor said there is evidence Lamparello spent time planning to burn down St. Patrick’s Cathedral, Lamparello’s lawyer, Christopher DiLorenzo, said his client suffered a psychotic episode. Lamparello watched Wednesday’s proceeding over a closed-circuit video link from Bellevue Hospital Center, where he sat in a hospital gown with DiLorenzo.
“It is clear that Mr. Lamparello suffered from a psychotic episode,” Mr. DiLorenzo said on Wednesday, “and the events leading up to and including the incident at St. Patrick’s Cathedral support this conclusion.”
One could argue that Islam is in fact psychotic. Islam is an ideology that calls on its adherents to conquer and kill. In the Quran, it states that non believers must be killed or forced into submission. All throughout the Middle East, Christian churches have been desecrated and burned by Muslims. Three days before the Notre Dame Cathedral mysteriously went up in flames and burned, a Muslim woman was charged for planning to blow the Cathedral up, leading many people to believe that the fire at Notre Dame during Holy Week was hardly an “accident” or “construction fire” as the media and french government was saying, all while the Cathedral was still in flames.
When Lamparello walked into St. Patrick’s Cathedral and was asked to leave, a police officer spotted him with the gas canisters and a black bag holding two containers of lighter fluid and a lighter, according to the criminal complaint.
Gas canisters in Paris.
Gas canisters in New York City.
Is Lamparello mentally ill? Or is he an Islamic convert?
I am not in the FBI. I am not a police officer. I am not a counter terrorism agent. Yet I have found evidence which I have presented, that suggests Lamparello may in fact be an Islamic convert, and no longer a devout Catholic like the media has been reporting in their desperate attempt to avoid mentioning that his Brooklyn address is the same address as a mosque.
This isn’t rocket science, but it reveals something sinister within the NYPD, as well as many other law enforcement agencies across the country. Either officers and agents are not receiving adequate training to detect obvious signs that a suspect is Islamic, or they are intentionally covering these facts up for the sake of political correctness.
Knowing these new facts that the NYPD and FBI just happened to leave out when they held a press conference about Lamparello’s arrest last week , what do you think is more likely?
Arson, which is what Lamparello was charged with, or a thwarted Islamic terror plot on a Cathedral during Holy Week?
How is it that NYPD counter terrorism agents didn’t find it important enough to mention the fact that Lamparello’s most recent address is the same address as a Brooklyn mosque?
Let’s revisit the NYPD deputy commissioner of intelligence and counterterrorism’s original statement.
“There doesn’t appear to be any connection to any terrorist group or any terrorist-related intent here,” said John Miller, the New York Police Department’s deputy commissioner of intelligence and counterterrorism.
Gee, really makes you wonder if the NYPD and FBI really mean it when they say, “If you see something, say something.”
NYPD and FBI NYC were both contacted with a request to comment on whether or not they stand by their statement that Lamparello’s actions were not terror related.
Both declined to comment.

Lord Foster of Thames Bank, Britain’s most famous architect, said that the competition was an “extraordinary opportunity”
Sharp British ideas for Notre Dame
Jonathan Morrison, Architecture Correspondent
The new spire on Notre Dame could be a “super-slender needle touching heaven’s clouds”, a minaret or a work of art composed entirely of light, according to some of Britain’s leading architects.
An international competition is to be held to find a replacement for the spire destroyed in the cathedral fire and British designers have been quick to respond with their ideas.
Although much of the 850-year-old cathedral survived the 15-hour blaze which started on Monday, the spire, which was added in the 19th century during a restoration, did not and collapsed at about 7pm.
Lord Foster of Thames Bank, Britain’s most famous architect, said that the competition was an “extraordinary opportunity” that would prove irresistible to anyone in the profession. He said submissions should…
PARIS (Reuters) – For years Notre-Dame cathedral was caught in a dispute between the city’s archdiocese and the French state over who should pay for repairs to its crumbling gargoyles, collapsed balustrades and weather-eroded Gothic facades.

Awaiting funds, Church officials used plastic pipes to drain water from one of the world’s most admired landmarks and created a “stone cemetery” from the fallen masonry.
On Tuesday, hours after flames had toppled the cathedral’s once towering wood-framed spire and gutted the roof, French tycoons had already pledged hundreds of millions of euros for restoration, as had some of the country’s best-known companies.
Before the end of the day, donations had exceeded 700 million euros ($790.93 million).
“It’s a shame,” said Philippe de Cuverville, general director for the Paris archdiocese in charge of economic affairs. “We tend to wait for things to become catastrophic before we take care of them. It’s just human nature.”
The outpouring of funds came amid a sense of national grief over Monday’s massive blaze at the 12th century Gothic cathedral in the heart of Paris.
Tuesday’s largesse was in sharp contrast to fundraising just two years ago, when the diocese appealed for 150 million euros to help restore the cathedral, some of which dates to the middle of the 12th century.
The government of former President Francois Hollande agreed to contribute 4 million euros annually over a 10-year period, double the 2 million euros the diocese said it would raise.
That still left the church nearly 100 million euros short, prompting the Friends of Notre-Dame charity, set up by the archbishop, to undertake fundraising overseas. He warned then of a grave risk that parts of the cathedral’s exterior could break up.
“We hoped that if we managed to raise more we would convince the government to raise its promises and do more work,” de Cuverville said.
The first pledge on Monday evening, as the blaze was still burning strong and consuming the oak-framed roof.
Francois-Henri Pinault of Kering Group, owners of Gucci and Yves Saint Laurent, offered 100 million euros. Soon after, his arch-rival Bernard Arnault of luxury group LVMH pledged double Pinault’s sum.
The Bettencourt-Meyer family, the largest shareholder in the L’Oreal cosmetics empire, offered 200 million euros, while oil and gas producer Total pledged 100 million. The City of Paris said it would unlock 50 million euros.
French prosecutors investigating the blaze said it was probably caused by accident. The Paris prosecutor has opened an investigation into “involuntary destruction by fire” and police began questioning workers involved in the restoration.
Jean-Michel Leniaud, head of the science council at the National Heritage Institute, said the blaze was the result of carelessness and neglect that stemmed in part from what he called a puerile conflict between the state, which officially owns Notre-Dame and is avowedly secular, and the Church.
“The lack of real maintenance and daily attention to a major building is the cause of this disaster,” Leniaud told Catholic newspaper La Croix. “The responsibility is completely collective because it’s the most collective monument in the country.”
——–TXLADY706—–> This sounds EXACTLY the same as just before 9-11-2001 with regard to the asbestos cleanup that would be required in the Twin Towers.
“We imagine that our patrimony will last forever, without us doing anything,” he said.
Disputes over the financing for Notre-Dame’s restoration go back two centuries to the last major project carried out during the 1800s, when architect Eugene Viollet-le-Duc designed and added the cathedral’s spire, historians say.

“There was a continual cry for funds (in the 19th century) because the needs were so great for a building of that size. Necessarily it required enormous expenditures of money just to maintain it,” said Professor Kevin Murphy at Vanderbilt University in Nashville, Tennessee.
Designing the rebuild will see two competing forces run up against each other, he said. “Imperative one is to preserve the building as an icon of French architecture, and the other is to make it serviceable for its purposes as a place of worship.”

From the above, it seems plausible that this could have been ORCHESTRATED for similar reasons as the ones that were engulfing the Twin Towers just before the “ATTACK. “
Remember that POTUS BUSH decreed by EDICT that Islam IS a RELIGION and is PEACEFUL. “Islam is a religion of peace” has two elements. The First, is that Islam is a Religion. The second is that IT is peaceful. There are protections that were therefore put in place for Islam that were not there for ANY other religion. No other religion has the medallion of PEACE by any other nation anywhere. Islam is therefore granted supremacy above all others. It was crowned the worlds RELIGION by none other than George Bush JR. (by the way he HATES the Junior designation-diminutive )
“Islam is Peace” Says President
Remarks by the President at Islamic Center of Washington, D.C.
THE PRESIDENT: Thank you all very much for your hospitality. We’ve just had a — wide-ranging discussions on the matter at hand. Like the good folks standing with me, the American people were appalled and outraged at last Tuesday’s attacks. And so were Muslims all across the world. Both Americans and Muslim friends and citizens, tax-paying citizens, and Muslims in nations were just appalled and could not believe what we saw on our TV screens.
These acts of violence against innocents violate the fundamental tenets of the Islamic faith. And it’s important for my fellow Americans to understand that.
The English translation is not as eloquent as the original Arabic, but let me quote from the Koran, itself: In the long run, evil in the extreme will be the end of those who do evil. For that they rejected the signs of Allah and held them up to ridicule.
The face of terror is not the true faith of Islam. That’s not what Islam is all about. Islam is peace. These terrorists don’t represent peace. They represent evil and war.
When we think of Islam we think of a faith that brings comfort to a billion people around the world. Billions of people find comfort and solace and peace. And that’s made brothers and sisters out of every race — out of every race.
America counts millions of Muslims amongst our citizens, and Muslims make an incredibly valuable contribution to our country. Muslims are doctors, lawyers, law professors, members of the military, entrepreneurs, shopkeepers, moms and dads. And they need to be treated with respect. In our anger and emotion, our fellow Americans must treat each other with respect.
Women who cover their heads in this country must feel comfortable going outside their homes. Moms who wear cover must be not intimidated in America. That’s not the America I know. That’s not the America I value.
I’ve been told that some fear to leave; some don’t want to go shopping for their families; some don’t want to go about their ordinary daily routines because, by wearing cover, they’re afraid they’ll be intimidated. That should not and that will not stand in America.
Those who feel like they can intimidate our fellow citizens to take out their anger don’t represent the best of America, they represent the worst of humankind, and they should be ashamed of that kind of behavior.
This is a great country. It’s a great country because we share the same values of respect and dignity and human worth. And it is my honor to be meeting with leaders who feel just the same way I do. They’re outraged, they’re sad. They love America just as much as I do.
I want to thank you all for giving me a chance to come by. And may God bless us all.
How does a fire burn this fast? During all of her 800 plus years, there were no fires? How were they extinguished? The timber of this wood is NOT porous. It is very dense, especially after so many years… This could NOT have been burnt down this fast. Where is the science? Who is using logic here?
I have to say that this building stood for over 800 years. To think that small fires had not happened before or accidents had not occurred is very naive. This building is SOLID. It would take a purposeful and DIRECTED attack to take her down. Sorry. I don’t buy the story that it had NOT been on purpose
How many times did they say that the California fires were accidental? They weren’t
Car containing gas cylinders found parked near Paris’ Notre Dame cathedral, police say
An abandoned car filled with gas cylinders that was found parked near Paris’ Notre Dame cathedral on Sunday may have been left at the landmark as part of a terror attack “test run,” officials said Wednesday.
The car’s owner, who is on a French intelligence service watch list of people suspected of religious radicalization, was in custody, Sky News reported. At least one other person had also been detained in the investigation.
“We think he may have been trying to carry out a test-run,” a police official told AFP.
An employee of a nearby bar flagged the car Sunday morning as it was parked along the Seine River with its hazard lights flashing, according to two French officials.
There were seven gas cylinders inside the car, with one empty cylinder in the front passenger seat and six others in the car’s trunk, authorities said. No detonating device was present.
Documents with Arabic writing were found inside the car, the BBC reported.
French Interior Minister Bernard Cazeneuve said it still was not clear why the car was abandoned or what the intentions were of those under arrest.
Cazeneuve said there have been 260 arrests linked to extremist networks since the beginning of the year “and a significant number of these people were preparing attacks.”
France is on alert after a deadly string of Islamic State attacks and threats against landmarks. News of the gas canisters’ near Notre Dame broke hours before the release of a government-commissioned report on how the attacks have impacted France’s lucrative tourism industry.
Algeria-linked extremists used gas canisters filled with nails during attacks on Paris in the 1990s.

ISIS fanatics are heartlessly revelling in the inferno at Notre Dame Cathedral just days before Easter calling it ‘retribution and punishment’, according to terror intelligence researchers.
A poster of the blazing cathedral appeared online accompanied by the words, ‘Have a good day,’ and was created by the ISIS affiliated Al-Muntasir group according to the Terrorism Research & Analysis Consortium.
The poster says: ‘Its construction began in the year 1163 and ended in 1345. It’s time to say goodbye to your oratory polytheism.’

The jihadists referred to the catastrophe as ‘retribution and punishment,’ SITE intelligence reported.
The chilling message appeared as firefighters continued their efforts to put out the blaze late on Monday night, which broke out less than a week before Easter and amid Holy Week commemorations.
The Al-Munatsir media organisation has shared propaganda rejoicing in terror attacks which have rocked France.
The Paris prosecutor’s office said it was treating the fire as an accident, ruling out arson and possible terror-related motives, at least for now.
While the jihadists celebrated online, France and the world mourned the destruction of a glorious symbol of Western civilisation.

French President Emmanuel Macron treated the fire as a national emergency, rushing to the scene and cancelling a previously scheduled televised address meant to address France’s yellow vest crisis.
‘The worse has been avoided, although the battle is not yet totally won,’ the president said, adding that he would launch a national funding campaign on Tuesday and call on the world’s ‘greatest talents’ to help rebuild the monument.
‘Notre Dame of Paris is our history, our literature, our imagination. The place where we survived epidemics, wars, liberation. It has been the epicenter of our lives,’ Macron said from the scene.

Notre Dame was ravaged as the fire swept across the top of the building around a renovation project before its spire collapsed, threatening priceless architecture and artworks throughout the cathedral.
The 12th-century church is home to relics, stained glass and other incalculable works of art and is a leading tourist attraction.
French media quoted the Paris fire brigade as saying the fire was ‘potentially linked’ to a 6 million euro (£5.2 million) renovation project on the spire and its 500 tons of wood and 250 tons of lead.
Despite the dramatic image of the flaming cathedral, no one was killed.
One firefighter was injured, among some 400 who battled the flames for hours before finally extinguishing them.
Firefighters continued working through the night to cool the building and secure the monument and announced on Tuesday morning the fire had been extinguished.
The blaze started at 6.50pm after the cathedral had closed to the public, and spread to one of its landmark rectangular towers.
The scaffolding at the top of the church and the wooden frame of the building was said to be completely ablaze by a cathedral spokesperson
Teams of firefighters from across the city were called in to try and put out the fire after it spread quickly through the cathedral on Monday evening
