    ISTANBUL (Reuters) - President Tayyip Erdogan said on Monday the United States was trying to create a “terror army” on Turkey’s southern frontier by training a Syrian border force that includes a Kurdish militia, and pledged to crush it before it came into being. snip Erdogan also said that Turkey’s armed forces had completed preparations for an operation against the Kurdish-controlled region of Afrin in northwest Syria and the town of Manbij.

    The Israel Defense Forces on Sunday said it had destroyed a border-crossing Hamas attack tunnel, the third in recent months, that penetrated hundreds of meters into both Israeli and Egyptian territory from the Gaza Strip, in an airstrike on Saturday night. “We completed the destruction of a third terror tunnel,” spokesperson Lt. Col. Jonathan Conricus told reporters early Sunday morning, denying claims made by Hamas that it was a smuggling tunnel. The tunnel, which was constructed differently from most tunnels in Gaza, began in the city of Rafah and crossed into Israel under the Kerem Shalom Crossing, through which hundreds...

    Former White House chief strategist Steve Bannon was just about to attack Michael Wolff for his book Fire and Fury when he decided to put a hold on the plans after President Donald Trump went all out in his criticism of his former staffer, reports CNN. Shortly after the first excerpts of the book were released in which Bannon was quoted as saying that Trump’s eldest son, Donald Trump Jr., was “treasonous” and “unpatriotic,” the former chief strategist planned to call the book “another lefty hatchet job.” But then Trump released his own statement saying Bannon had “lost his mind”...

    Like the Meltdown bug, the Spectre bug is a hardware bug in the form of a CPU design flaw. Unlike the Meltdown bug which only affects Intel processors, the Spectre bug impacts Intel, AMD, and some ARM (used in many smart phones and other mobile devices) processors. These three are by far the most common CPUs on the planet, running literally billions of devices. In a Spectre attack, the CPU is tricked into executing instructions that it normally would not, causing leaks in the victims memory address space.

    What is the Meltdown bug? Most of the bugs that make the news are software bugs, but the Meltdown bug is a hardware bug (in the form of a design flaw) that affects Intel processors going back several generations. In a nut shell, the Meltdown bug is a brand new way to (possibly) steal your information.

    Authorities have arrested a 26-year-old man connected to the Islamic State (ISIS) who was allegedly plotting a terrorist attack in San Francisco over the Christmas holiday. The FBI reports that they arrested Everitt Aaron Jameson, a truck driver from Modesto, California. He referred to himself as Abdallah adu Everitt ibn Gordon. He is charged specifically with attempting to supply support to a foreign terrorist organization and he has posted pro-ISIS and pro-terrorist posts on Facebook. His intended target was San Francisco’s famous Pier 39. Jameson was apparently unknowingly chatting with an undercover FBI agent and was arrested earlier this week. A search...

    Federal authorities on Friday charged a 26-year-old Modesto man with planning a terror attack on San Francisco’s Pier 39 after an undercover investigation that unfolded in recent weeks. Everitt Aaron Jameson, a tow-truck driver and discharged Marine, was charged in a criminal complaint filed at the U.S. District Court in Sacramento with attempting to provide material support to a foreign terrorist organization — in this case the Islamic State. ...... Jameson explained that he also desired to use explosives and described a play in which explosives could ‘tunnel’ or ‘funnel’ people into a location where Jameson could inflict casualties,” McKinney...

    American Thinker ^ | Dec 16, 2017 | Deborah C. Tyler
    On November 3, 2017, a man entered the private property of a sitting U.S. senator uninvited. He snuck up behind and assaulted the senator with such violence that he broke six ribs and damaged the senator's lungs, leading to pneumonia and severe pain. These injuries prevented the senator from returning to Congress for a crucial debate in which he played a leadership role. If a right-wing assailant had broken the bones of Nancy Pelosi or Chuck Schumer, sending either of them to a pain-filled hospital bed, the outcry from both sides of Congress would have been ear-shattering. The left-wing media...

    ROSEVILLE (CBS13) — A Salvation Army bell ringer was attacked in front of Walmart for simply spreading holiday cheer. We’ve all heard it; the jingle that means it’s nearly Christmas and ringing in sounds of hope for donations. But not everyone is in the giving spirit. “I greet everybody, 'Merry Christmas,'” said Rev. Jamie Wolfe, Sr. Sadly, those two simple words got this bell ringer knocked out. “He haymakered me, hit me, got me down on the ground and we started wrestling, at that point I’m fighting for my life,” Wolfe Sr. said. The man wasn’t after the kettle money,...

    We all know we should “turn the other cheek.” Few of us ever do. That’s why the reaction of one pro-life teenager to a woman who punched her in the face outside an abortion clinic is extraordinary. On Monday, Students for Life of America published a video of 15-year-old Purity Thomas recalling how a woman punched her as she stood holding a pro-life sign outside a Planned Parenthood clinic. While conservative media have thoroughly covered the Dec. 2 incident, the liberal media – who claim to champion women’s rights – have remained largely silent. In the new video, Purity, president...

    The video was filmed by Leon Lorenz on 14 June, 2010. Lorenz originally filmed grizzlys without carrying a pistol. His mother insisted that he start carrying a .44 magnum a decade earlier. The video has not seen much play in the United States.From theglobeandmail.com:Mr. Lorenz has filmed grizzlies for the past 19 years and knew well how to prepare for an encounter with a bear. He'd washed with unscented soap and was sure to walk without making any noise. He knew he could likely talk his way out of a grizzly attack by calmly reassuring the beasts. After all, he'd...

    A poster is being circulated among ISIS supporters that shows a man driving in a car with a gun and a backpack towards the Vatican. In English lettering reads, “Christmas blood,” and “So wait…” on a second line. The Christmas season has been a time for Islamist terrorists to strike in the past. The “underwear bomber” attempted to blow up a plane around Christmastime in 2009. The heinous terror attack in San Bernardino, California, began at a Christmas party when Syed Farook and his wife Tashfeen Malik killed 14 of their co-workers in 2015. Terror experts have warned that the...

    HENRY COUNTY, Ga. - A bullet narrowly missed a woman's heart after police say she fought off a group of teenaged robbers. It happened in Stockbridge. The family told Channel 2's Chris Jose they're offering $10,000 of their own money to find the suspects. On Friday, Van Anh Ho picked up three teenagers who asked for a ride to school. When they told her to park here near a Walmart, police told Jose she got suspicious and jumped out of her SUV. One of the suspects fired a gun. Even though she was wounded, Ho fought back, said her daughter,...

    The man responsible for attacking Sen. Rand Paul Friday afternoon was an avowed liberal who frequently fought with his neighbors about politics, according to a report Sunday from The Washington Post. [Snip] [Rene] Boucher is a divorced socialist who is "pretty much the opposite of Rand Paul in every way," Jim Bullington, a former member of the city commission who knows both men well, told reporters Sunday. A Facebook account Boucher maintained before the attack contains numerous anti-Republican postings. Boucher wrote "May Robert Mueller fry Trump's gonads" in a May post referencing the former FBI director’s investigation into possible collusion...

    FRANKFORT, Ky. (AP) — U.S. Sen. Rand Paul was recovering Sunday from five broken ribs after he was assaulted by a neighbor who tackled him from behind at the senator’s Kentucky home, officials said. Senior Adviser Doug Stafford said it is unclear when the Republican will return to work since he is in considerable pain and has difficulty getting around, including flying. Stafford said this type of injury is marked by severe pain that can last for weeks to months. “This type of injury is caused by high velocity severe force,” Stafford said in an email to The Associated Press.
