    Daily Beast ^ | March 21, 2017 | JANA WINTER, CLIVE IRVING
    Three intelligence sources told The Daily Beast that the ban on carry-on electronics aboard U.S.-bound flights from 10 airports in North Africa and the Middle East was the result of information seized during a U.S. raid on Al Qaeda in Yemen in January. The United Kingdom joined the U.S. ban Tuesday. Information from the raid shows al Qaeda's successful development of compact, battery bombs that fit inside laptops or other devices believed to be strong enough to bring down an aircraft, the sources said. The battery bombs would need to be manually triggered, a source explained, which is why the...

    A man has been shot dead after grabbing a solider's gun at Orly airport in Paris, French officials say. He was killed by the security forces in a shop after seizing the weapon in the airport's southern terminal.

A security operation is continuing with bomb disposal experts involved and a search for any possible accomplices. Police also want to make sure the dead man was not wearing an explosive belt......

    The largest and busiest airport in Arkansas would no longer be named after the only president and first lady from the state if a bill introduced in the legislature on Thursday succeeds. The legislation would prohibit public buildings or civil works from being named for anyone living or who served in public office in the 10 years prior to the structure’s completion. [Snip] "You have a president who was impeached for having an affair with an intern in the Oval Office and then disbarred," said state Sen. Jason Rapert, the bill’s author and one of the Arkansas legislature’s most outspoken...

    Islamic State fighters have broken through government defensive lines in the Syrian city of Deir ez-Zor, surrounding a military airport and cutting off food supplies for roughly a quarter of a million civilians in what could become a major humanitarian disaster. Deir ez-Zor in eastern Syria is divided between the militants and the government of Bashar al-Assad. The areas controlled by the government have long been under siege but were sustained by supplies flown in to the nearby military airport and by airdrops from the World Food Programme. But on Monday, Isis fighters, which sources from the city said were...

    Investor's Business Daily ^ | 2/3/2017 | John Merline
    There was always something fishy about the outbreak of "spontaneous" protests at airports around the country in the immediate wake of President Trump's executive order pausing visas and refugees from terror-prone countries. Not that you'd suspect anything from the way they were covered. Nearly every story published over that weekend stated without equivocation that the protests were an unplanned and visceral reaction to Trump's executive order. Examples: "Spontaneous Protests Hit Airports Across America Following Trump's Executive Order" "Protest Grows 'Out of Nowhere' at Kennedy Airport" "The senseless cruelty of the executive order has led to spontaneous protests at many of...

    The Port Authority of New York and New Jersey, which owns and operates three major airports in the New York City area and controls certain terminal areas at the airports (hereinafter terminals), adopted a regulation forbidding, inter alia, the repetitive solicitation of money within the terminals. However, solicitation is permitted on the sidewalks outside the terminal buildings. Petitioner International Society for Krishna Consciousness, Inc., a not-for-profit religious corporation whose members, among other things, solicit funds in public places to support their movement, brought suit seeking declaratory and injunctive relief under 42 U.S.C. § 1983 alleging that the regulation deprived them...

    Protesters started trickling into DFW International Airport's baggage claim Saturday afternoon after news broke of up to 50 people being detained by customs. First it was a few dozen family members of detained travelers waiting for answers. A few hours later the crowd swelled to hundreds. "I think the most beautiful thing about the entire evening was it wasn't predominately Muslim," Mohammad Abdulhadi said. "There were Mexicans, priests, rabbis, men, women, everybody." Abdulhadi came to the airport to support his friend who's parents were being detained. The parents are from Syria and traveled with visas but were turned away when...

    It began in the morning, with a small crowd chanting and holding cardboard signs outside Kennedy International Airport, upset by the news that two Iraqi refugees had been detained inside because of President Trump’s executive order. By the end of the day, the scattershot group had swelled to an enormous crowd. They filled the sidewalks outside the terminal and packed three stories of a parking garage across the street, a mass of people driven by emotion to this far-flung corner of the city, singing, chanting and unfurling banners. This was the most public expression of the intense reaction generated across...

    Far left Senator Elizabeth Warren was back in the news this week after it was discovered she failed to disclose a $1.3 million line of credit provided to her by Bank of America. Warren regularly lashes out at banks – except when she needs them. Today Warren stopped by the Boston Airport to lead leftist drones in bizarre repetition chanting. The is the type of nonsense coming from the coastal Democrat Party today. "Warren: We’ve all heard about this order that President has given. It is illegal. It is unconstitutional. It will be overturned. An attack on anyone for their...

    Michael Moore‘s message today could not be more clear: “[W]e need a massive showing right now.” His tweets are in direct response to Friday afternoon’s executive order by President Donald Trump, signed at 4:42 p.m. EST, that, in part, blocked entry into the United States for citizens from seven Muslim-majority countries: Iran, Iraq, Sudan, Syria, Somalia, Yemen, and Libya. The shockwaves in response have been felt nation-wide today as a result, with thousands of Americans protesting at airports with New York City’s JFK front and center of the unfolding drama. Moore is pleading with American citizens to congregate and protest...

    Information is slowly trickling out that links the Ft. Lauderdale Airport shooter to radical Islam while the official story from authorities is that the gunman is a mentally ill, Hispanic Army veteran named Esteban Santiago that became unhinged after a tour in Iraq. Only one mainstream media outlet mentions the possibility of Santiago’s “jihadist identity,” burying it in a piece about New York possibly being his initial target. A paragraph deep in the story mentions that investigators recovered Santiago’s computer from a pawn shop and the FBI is examining it to determine whether he created a “jihadist identity for himself...
  • Official: Suspected Gunman Told FBI He Was Being Forced To Fight For ISIS

    Law enforcement said he was found with an active military ID and is an American citizen, born in New Jersey. Previous known addresses include Penuelas, Puerto Rico and Anchorage, Alaska. They add that in November 2016, he walked into an FBI office in Anchorage claiming that he was being forced to fight for ISIS. He was sent to a psychiatric hospital. In 2011 or 2012, he was investigated by Homeland Security Investigations for child porn. Three weapons and a computer were seized, but there was not enough evidence to prosecute, according to law enforcement sources.
