    Monday’s Amtrak train derailment in the United States, appears to have been caused by an object on the railway, a government official briefed on the crash told The New York Post. Some of the 14 train cars careened onto vehicles on a highway below.

    Law enforcement confirmed at least six deaths and 78 injured passengers. Independent journalist Mike Cernovich tweeted an archived link to a now deleted article from a far-left website It’s Going Down, where an ANTIFA group bragged about pouring concrete on train tracks in Olympia, WA.

    Antifa has been exposed sabotaging railroad tracks in Portland, Oregon about a month ago, Dangerous.com reported.

    Antifa anarchists blockaded the Port of Olympia in Washington for 12 days, from November 17 to 29, until police forced them to evacuate. Their actions inspired other Antifas to sabotage a railroad in Oregon.

    The group had built a makeshift encampment to block railroad tracks in downtown Olympia to protest the Port of Olympia’s shipping of fracking sand, which is used to extract oil and natural gas.

    Police took action against the Antifas following complaints from a railroad company, issuing verbal warnings before entering the camp, which police say was empty by the time officers moved in, according to a report on the Olympian.

    Police dogs were used to search for explosives near the railroad tracks.

    Around two dozen protesters, many of whom had their faces covered were pushed back by police, but no arrests were made.

    The high-speed Amtrak train “hit something” before derailing on Washington State line, but the system designed to prevent an accident had not been enabled, the Daily Mail reported.

    An official briefed on the investigation told The Associated Press that preliminary signs indicate that Train 501 may have struck something before going off the track. The official was not authorized to discuss the investigation publicly and spoke on the condition of anonymity.

    But the new high-tech Positive Train Control (PTC) system that each of the brand Amtrak Cascade engines are equipped with was not switched on.

    CNN spoke to Amtrak President and Co-CEO Richard Anderson, who confirmed that the Positive Train Control had been disabled on the tracks at the time.

    The PTC computer system prevents a train from exceeding a speed limit and can detect objects or collisions ahead is fitted to all the new Charger locomotives on the Seattle to Portland line.

    In the August issue of al-Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula’s English-language Inspire magazine, Amtrak’s DC to Boston Acela Express and several other specific passenger rail lines in the United States were named as prime targets for their new focus on train derailment operations.

    The group had warned at the time that rail targets had already been more than a year in the planning stages.

    The article focused on busy city metro trains, regional routes in population-dense corridors, and long-distance trains with remote tracks that are almost impossible to police.

    • The only surprise here is (((Antifa))) pretending to care for the environment. Antifa hatred of Whites is what drives them to support (((TPTB))) swamping Western civilization with third-worlders. Even knowing third-worlders don’t care about the environment, and that Whites have traditionally been the only supporters of environmental causes.
