Rich Bentley Driver Caused Niagara Falls Checkpoint Explosion After Canceled KISS Concert: Report

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

This article was originally published by Tyler Durden at ZeroHedge. 

Update (1910ET): Today’s Niagara Falls checkpoint explosion just took an unexpected turn.

What started out with Fox News reporting a terrorism incident involving explosives is now believed to be the fault of a 56-year-old man who lived in a wealthy area, went to a casino after KISS canceled its farewell tour dates in Ottawa and Toronto, and then drove his $300,000 (after taxes) Bentley Excelsior X into the border checkpoint, killing himself and his wife.

Well boys, that’s a wrap:

Update (1615ET):  Reuters is now reporting that Wednesday’s explosion at the Canada-US border checkpoint at Niagara Falls was likely caused by a reckless driver and not terrorism. Fox News has also walked back a report stating that the car had explosives.

“Now we told you earlier that there was an explosion because there were explosives inside the car, and now authorities are apparently walking that back just a little bit saying it’s unclear if there were explosives or how many explosives,” said host Trace Gallagher.

“And so you can see as, as the fog clears on this air, and they’re kind of getting a better idea of what’s happening,” he said, as the network also backed off the ‘terrorism’ angle.

“Clearly, this might not be a terror attack at all,” Gallagher added (via RawStory):

Meanwhile, a witness described what he saw:

New security footage from the Rainbow Bridge border crossing in Niagara Falls captures the moment the vehicle exploded.

Update (1412ET):

Fox News reports, citing sources, that the vehicle explosion at the Rainbow Bridge border crossing in Niagara Falls was an attempted terrorist attack.

Here’s more from Fox sources:

An explosion involving a vehicle occurred just outside the US border inspection area on the Rainbow Bridge at the US-Canada Border in Niagara Falls.

Footage from the scene shows smoke billowing into the sky. It’s unclear what caused the explosion and if any injuries.

The FBI field office in Buffalo has released a statement about the incident:

In a post on X, New York Governor Kathy Hochul said, “I’ve been briefed on the incident on the Rainbow Bridge in Niagara Falls and we are closely monitoring the situation. State agencies are on site and ready to assist.”

According to the Peace Bridge Authority, all border crossings from Canada along the Niagara River have been closed after the incident. Besides Rainbow Bridge, Peace Bridge, Lewiston-Queenston Bridge, and Whirpool Bridge are currently shut down in both directions.

Expect heavy traffic delays across the Niagara area.

      :!: Better LOOK AGAIN!

      This entire fiasco is based upon one shameful fact:
      WORLD-WIDE, We The People can d@mn sure KISS IT GOODBYE!

      NO, It’s NOT about the rock band KISS canceling their performance.

      HOWEVER, it IS about that so-called WEF, NWO and all their similar bad-winged ilk etc…who LITERALLY follow to the letter their evicted ‘leader’ satan the devil !
      John chapter 8 verse 44: “Ye are of your father the devil, and the lusts of your father ye will do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and abode not in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaketh a lie, he speaketh of his own: for he is a liar, and the father of it.” AND…

      I Peter chapter 5 verses 6 thru 9: “Humble yourselves therefore under the mighty hand of God, that he may exalt you in due time: Casting all your care upon him; for he careth for you. Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour: Whom resist stedfast in the faith, knowing that the same afflictions are accomplished in your brethren that are in the world.”

        One of my sincere suspicions? Please keep in mind, I could be totally WRONG. HOWEVER…

        This event could be the primary step toward blocking the borders of USA for Entry-Exit.
        NOT for the mass migration of illegal immigrants (estimated 8 million+ to date), based SOLELY upon US citizens.

          I just responded to your post on the other thread here:

          With the addition of Bentley Excelsior X there is more observations to add:

          First an X… loads of connotations, not least marks the spot, X-it and X-men

          In 1778 the state of New York adopted a coat of arms incorporating the motto “Excelsior,” Latin for “Higher.” Decades later, the motto sparked the imagination of the young Henry Wadsworth Longfellow, and in 1842 he used it as the title of an allegorical poem of doomed idealism. The poem begins, “The shades of night were falling fast, / As through an Alpine village passed / A youth, who bore, ‘mid snow and ice, / A banner with the strange device, / Excelsior!” and follows the young man as he forges upward on his inscrutable mission, ignoring all warnings, before eventually perishing in the snow. It became so popular that, in its wake, the word was adopted as a brand name by numerous businesses; one manufactured wood shavings for use as packing material, and the term is still used for shavings today. But though Longfellow was an eminent linguist, he, like the founders of New York, failed to reflect that the adjective excelsior was perhaps less appropriate to his purpose than the adverb sursum (“upwards”). But the world hasn’t minded—and certainly not the great comic-book writer Stan Lee, who for decades closed his popular magazine columns and speeches with the heartening exclamation.

            Thank you, I’ve read thru your reply comments and YES…somewhat unsure about ‘thought provoking’ but still….certainly all are the most strangely odd ‘formation’, no doubt.

            I will say…I’m of zero involvement to limited understanding worshiping any numbers etc…
            YET…one thing does come to mind…if and how it may be moving in the same horrible direction?

            Maybe compare both: one that’s called ‘Night of Open Heaven’ on November 22…along with this wretched Rainbow Bridge explosive event. Believe it or not…that ‘son of perdition’ is LITERALLY present somewhere on earth right at this very moment, just waiting until the best possible moment to reveal ‘himself’. Those who have an ear, let ‘em hear!

            I believe satan the devil ALWAYS wants, even makes evil effort to derail & destroy any and all things, but especially those which are related & tied to both Christians and God alike.

            Right NOW is the prime time to read John chapter 17

            • Gray_Matter

              II Thessalonians chapter 2 verses 1-10: “Now we beseech you, brethren, by the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ, and by our gathering together unto him, That ye be not soon shaken in mind, or be troubled, neither by spirit, nor by word, nor by letter as from us, as that the day of Christ is at hand. Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition; Who opposeth and exalteth himself above all that is called God, or that is worshipped; so that he as God sitteth in the temple of God, shewing himself that he is God. Remember ye not, that, when I was yet with you, I told you these things? And now ye know what withholdeth that he might be revealed in his time. For the mystery of iniquity doth already work: only he who now letteth will let, until he be taken out of the way. And then shall that Wicked be revealed, whom the Lord shall consume with the spirit of his mouth, and shall destroy with the brightness of his coming: Even him, whose coming is after the working of Satan with all power and signs and lying wonders, And with all deceivableness of unrighteousness in them that perish; because they received not the love of the truth, that they might be saved.”

              PLEASE, take to heart…I’m NOT telling ANYONE what they should or should not believe. Merely sharing what I believe in my heart.

              BUT…I must add a tiny part, asking…

              Matthew chapter 7 verse 7-8: “Ask, and it shall be given you; seek, and ye shall find; knock, and it shall be opened unto you: For every one that asketh receiveth; and he that seeketh findeth; and to him that knocketh it shall be opened.” AND…

              The Revelation chapter 3 verse 20: “Behold, I stand at the door, and knock: if any man hear my voice, and open the door, I will come in to him, and will sup with him, and he with me.”
