    Fox via The Blaze ^ | Nov 15, 2017
    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.
  • How is the NY truck incident a "cowardly" act?

    How is the truck attack a cowardly act? I have absolutely no defense for the murderer and think he should be summarily tried and executed. However, really, how was his attack cowardly? He ran over people knowing what the consequences were going to be and jumped out with useless "guns" knowing he would be shot. How is that cowardly? Takes a lot of guts (no pun intended at all), if you ask me. When law enforcement should be saying we are going to kick asses and take names, all they can say is that this was a "cowardly act". Looks...

    Kurds say that the Iraqi forces include not only elite Counter-Terrorism fighters but also Iranian-backed Shia militias often called Hashd al-Shaabi. Iraqis tend to stress that this is an Iraqi army operation, whereas Kurds emphasize the Iranian role. There are also divisions within the Kurdish side with some Kurdish leaders associated with the Patriotic Union of Kurdistan supporting the Iraqi army against Kurdish forces associated with the Kurdistan Democratic Party.

    Business Insider - Politics ^ | 19 Oct 17 | Allan Smith
    The two most recent presidents on Thursday blasted the state of US politics in events that were separated by less than 20 miles. First, it was former President George W. Bush. The most recent former Republican president lambasted a political culture that caused "bigotry" to seem "emboldened." The public comments were Bush's most pointed since President Donald Trump took office in January. "In recent decades, public confidence in our institutions has declined," the 43rd president said at an event in New York hosted by his namesake institute. "Our governing class has often been paralyzed in the face of obvious...

    PITTSBURGH - A teacher was attacked after class Wednesday: hit by a brick, dragged out of her car and assaulted. That teacher is recovering after her kids said she was brutally attacked by the parents of a child who weren't happy with the way she handled a punishment. "It's just ridiculous and it's horrible," said Gerald Watkins, the victim's son. "That's the way they teach their children to solve differences." Pittsburgh King pre K-8 teacher Janice Davis Watkins was attacked Wednesday afternoon after her children said she took away one of her elementary school student's cellphone. "There's 102 ways that...

    A 27-year-old black man has been charged with a hate crime after assaulting a white, disabled, homeless passenger as revenge for slavery. WJLA reports Marquis Evans-Royster and the victim were riding the Washington D.C. Metrobus system at the time of the incident. Evans-Royster approached the 52-year-old victim, looked him directly in the eye, and said, “You owe me for making my grandmother a slave.” Evans-Royster also reportedly spit on the victim’s face and searched through his pockets. While on the bus, he also allegedly yelled, “All white people are evil” and that the white passengers on the bus “should die.”...

    ANF and Roj News reporters Ersin Caksu and Sores Benek wrote about what happened in Kirkuk yesterday. During the invasion maneuvers of the Iraqi army and the Hashd al-Shabi on Kirkuk, the defense line formed by the guerrillas, the peshmergas who refused to withdraw and the people of Kirkuk who took up arms in the Feylaq Crossing was broken when KDP forces abandoned the general security forces buildings and withdrew from the area along with their heavy weaponry. Following the attacks the Iraqi army and the Hashd al-Shaabi forces with them launched on Kirkuk, the defense line formed by the...

    Regarding the Las Vegas shooting, I would like to point out that in none of the videos which capture glimpses of the 32nd floor at Mandalay Bay during the shooting do I see ANY muzzle flashes whatsoever. I am by far no firearms expect. Not by a long shot (no pun intended). But I DO know that high-powered rifles including AR-15's, etc., would create a highly-noticeable muzzle flash or burst of 'flame' at night measuring at least a foot in diameter, at least. A shooter with his weapon poised towards the outside of the window should be easily seen when...

    In the wake of the Aurora Theater shooting, I suggested that private sector establishments ought to be expected to be more concerned about the safety of their customers. In the case of the Aurora Theater, this was magnified by the fact that the theater was a "gun free zone" and did not allow patrons to carry their own firearms as self defense. At the same time, the theater owners themselves couldn't be bothered with taking even the most rudimentary steps against allowing a gunman to casually carry multiple weapons from his car into one of the theater's back doors. The...

One of the women had been hit in the eye with the substance and could not see well, TV station France 3 reported. All four of the Americans were university students in their early 20s studying abroad. A statement from Boston College identified them as Courtney Siverling, Charlotte Kaufman and Michelle Krug — students...

    SEOUL, South Korea (AP) — Following U.S. warnings to North Korea of a “massive military response,” South Korea fired missiles into the sea to simulate an attack on the North’s main nuclear test site on Monday, a day after North Korea detonated its largest-ever nuclear test explosion. South Korea’s Defense Ministry also said Monday that North Korea appeared to be planning a future missile launch, possibly of an ICBM, to show off its claimed ability to target the United States with nuclear weapons, though it was unclear when this might happen. The heated words from the United States and the...
