    British jihadis now fighting for the Islamic State in Syria have tweeted a letter urging rioters in Ferguson, Missouri, to pledge their "allegiance" to ISIS leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi. In return, militants would be sent to "shed" their own "blood" to help fight police forces. Trying to take advantage of the social unrest following the Ferguson grand jury decision not to indict police officer Darren Wilson for shooting dead unarmed teenager Michael Brown, a British Islamic State militant tweeted a series of photos on Wednesday featuring a hand-written letter to the Ferguson protesters calling for them to convert to Islam...

    Ft. Hood murderer Nidal Hasan recently sent a six page letter to Pope Francis about waging Jihad, further clarifying Hasan's murder of 13 people and the shooting of 30 others in 2009 was Islamic terrorism, not work place violence as the politically correct Obama administration has said and argued.

    An Oklahoma man who had been suspended from his job was charged Tuesday with first-degree murder in the gruesome beheading of a co-worker, who was attacked from behind as the man sought revenge, a prosecutor said Tuesday. Nolen had recently converted to Islam but Cleveland County Prosecutor Greg Mashburn said it appeared Nolen's assault was tied more to his suspension. Mashburn said Vaughan's human resources department suspended Nolen earlier Thursday after another co-worker, Traci Johnson, had complained that she had had an altercation with Nolen "about him not liking white people." "It had more to do with race rather than...

    Just days prior to the ruthless beheading of an innocent woman at the hands of Oklahoma jihadist Alton Nolen, his Imam, Imad Enchassi, garnered international attention after claiming that Muslims--even Muslim children--who resided in Oklahoma were under constant threat of literally having their heads chopped off. Imam Enchassi said in an interview about the threats he allegedly received: “We’re going to chop your head off. We’re going to burn your mosque. We got specific threats of beheading Muslims in the state. Beheading children.” The Imam said of his fellow Muslims’ children: “Yesterday, our children did not go play outside in...

    The Boston Marathon bombing attacks have not been certified as an “act of terrorism” by the US Treasury, an important point holding up some insurance payments. In the wake of the 9/11 attacks, Congress passed the Terrorism Risk Insurance Act, which created federally-backed insurance in cases of damage due to terrorism. Some Boston businesses were among those that bought the insurance. Those purchases became relevant after the Boston Marathon bombings on April 15, 2013. Of the 160 companies located near the marathon’s finish line that submitted insurance claims, just 14 percent had purchased terrorism insurance, Insurance Journal reported. But as...

But they whisked him away to their Manhattan office and grilled him for two hours on an entirely different topic: Islamic State extremists. Over and over, they asked Morgan, a 44-year-old North Carolina man, converted Muslim and author of pro-extremist tweets, whether he had traveled to Syria to support the militant group. More important, they wanted know whether he could identify any fighters with U.S. ties who had left the region to return to America. The...

    Given the powerful grief and anger over the Boston Marathon bombing, Boston would seem to be a particularly hostile place for Dzhokhar Tsarnaev to stand trial. But it might just be his best hope of escaping a death sentence. Opposition to the death penalty runs deep in liberal Massachusetts. In a Boston Globe survey in September, 57 percent of Massachusetts residents polled favored life in prison for Tsarnaev, while 33 percent favored execution. As Tsarnaev's lawyers weigh whether to attempt to move his trial out of town, away from those most deeply traumatized by the bombing, some legal experts say...

    When U.S. officials warn about "attacks" on electric power facilities these days, the first thing that comes to mind is probably a computer hacker trying to shut the lights off in a city with malware. But a more traditional attack on a power station in California has U.S. officials puzzled and worried about the physical security of the the electrical grid--from attackers who come in with guns blazing. Around 1:00 AM on April 16, at least one individual (possibly two) entered two different manholes at the PG&E Metcalf power substation, southeast of San Jose, and cut fiber cables in the...

    A Tennessee father was hauled off to jail after he insisted on taking his son home from school on time, rather than waiting for another half an hour under a recently implemented school rule. Jim Howe, father of two children enrolled in South Cumberland Elementary in Crossville, Tennessee, arrived at the school on foot at dismissal time: 2:00 PM. But a new school policy states that students may only leave at 2:00 PM if their parents are picking them up in cars. Walkers must wait until 2:35 PM. Howe maintained that the policy was meant to apply to students walking...

    President Obama's narcissistic hits just keep on coming. Yesterday, we noted that in his interview with NBC's Chuck Todd, President Obama cast himself as the victim of the ObamaCare mess, complaining that "I've been burned" by the bad website. In a new clip from the interview that Todd aired during today's Daily Rundown, President Obama bragged "I can guarantee you that I have been more deeply involved in our intelligence operations on a whole set of areas where there real threats against us than just about any President." As with his victim whine, the prez caught himself and amended his...

    In that report, Jones found that Transportation Security Administration (TSA) checkpoint screeners are receiving training to prepare them for the possibility of a mass shooting at one of the agency’s airport checkpoints, and those TSA personnel are being instructed to “save themselves” should a shooting occur. One TSA worker told Jones, “Every day when I arrive for work, I look for an escape route in case someone opens fire. We have been told to save ourselves.”
  • Was the attack on the TSA at LAX a false flag to justify ARMING the agents? [Vanity]

    It's all in the title, but worth considering that the attack on the TSA and the supposed 'note written by the shooter' stating he wanted to "Kill the TSA" is all a false flag for the purpose of starting a movement to arm the TSA agents. The King is always looking to grow his 'Civilian National Security Force' and the TSA is well over 50,000 strong. We know probably over half of them couldn't even qualify to carry a firearm due to their shady pasts, but don't be surprised if calls to arm the TSA get stronger over the next...

    As I've documented in the past, many leftist teachers teach our youngsters to hate our country. For example, University of Hawaii Professor Haunani-Kay Trask counseled her students, "We need to think very, very clearly about who the enemy is. The enemy is the United States of America and everyone who supports it." Some universities hire former terrorists to teach and indoctrinate students. Kathy Boudin, former Weather Underground member and convicted murderer, is on the Columbia University School of Social Work's faculty. Her Weather Underground comrade William Ayers teaches at the University of Illinois at Chicago. Bernardine Dohrn, his wife, is...

    But remember, sheeple, it's not the Muslim terrorists slaughtering, bombing and blowing up soft targets that's the problem. No. It is the few of us who talk about it. Yes, we are the danger. Confused? Then you are a racist-islamophobic-anti-jihad-slaughtering bigot. Fuel storage attack plans mimic the jihad attack on the BP gas complex in Algeria where Muslim terrorists kidnapped 600 hostages targeting infidels from Western nations, America, too, while all the Muslim captives were released immediately, of course. The remaining foreign hostages were slaughtered. But the reality is that the Muslim group that attacked the BP gas complex...

    Officials said Fort Hood gunman Nidal Hasan was shaved after his move to death row and Texas legislators proposed a new compensation bill for shooting victims. Hasan, who was convicted in the 2009 shooting deaths of 13 people and injury of 31 others at the Texas military base, grew a beard for what he said were religious regions prior to the start of his court-martial. The move drew the ire of the judge, who found Hasan in contempt of court, causing a one-year delay of his trial. After Hasan, 42, was flown to Fort Leavenworth, Kan., Friday to be put...
  • Cross bombed in Coos Bay (More left-wing domestic terrorism goes unreported!)

    If this had been a bombing of an abortion clinic bombing instead of the bombing of a cross, it would be national international news. This weekend, someone detonated an improvised explosive device (IED) next to the Coos Bay Vietnam Veterans Memorial. The memorial, which sits in a public park in Coos Bay, Oregon, and includes a cross, recently became a target of the ACLU and the Wisconsin-based Freedom From Religion Foundation, which demanded the cross be removed because it violates the so-called “separation of church and state.” Back on May 21, 2013, this same site was vandalized by people who made their...
