    Crimea was left without electricity supplies from Ukraine on Sunday after pylons carrying power lines to the Russia-annexed peninsula were blown up overnight. It was not immediately clear who had damaged the pylons, but a Russian senator described the move as an "act of terrorism" and implied that Ukrainian nationalists were to blame. Crimea receives the bulk of its electricity from the Ukrainian mainland and its seizure by Russia last year prompted fury in Kiev and the West, which then imposed economic sanctions on Russian companies and individuals. Russia's Energy Ministry said emergency electricity supplies had been turned on for...

    A few days after the Paris attacks that left hundreds dead and injured, Russia confirmed that a homemade explosive device was detonated on board MetroJet Flight 9268 in October, killing all 224 passengers. Since then, ISIS published images of the bomb that was detonated inside the airplane, saying that the Russian flight wasn't the original target. Instead, ISIS wanted to shoot down a Western plane. The image below shows a Schweppes can, a detonator and a possible trigger switch, The Telegraph notes. The picture was posted in the latest edition of the Dabiq propaganda magazine, right alongside pictures of passports...

    A 17-year-old Bowie High School student was arrested in connection with threatening posts made on social media against her school. Shalaria Jones was arrested Wednesday night and charged with making terroristic threats on Twitter using a fake account. Pretending to be a “white” student at Bowie, Jones posted three threatening tweets -- one including a picture of a handgun with a threat of a school shooting. The tweets caused a “chaotic scene” when as many as 300 students left school out of fear for their safety, according to an arrest warrant.

    Real-estate mogul Donald Trump blasted the recent University of Missouri protests, which he called "disgraceful," during a Thursday-morning interview on Fox Business Network. "I think it's disgusting. I think it's disgusting," the Republican presidential candidate began when asked about the university. Weeks of protests over racial tensions have rocked the campus, leading University of Missouri president Tim Wolfe to announce his resignation on Monday. Chancellor R. Bowen Loftin also said he would step down at the end of the year. But Trump argued that it was a "weak" move for the two leaders to step aside. "I think the two...

    Something stinks at the University of Missouri. A reported incident of vandalism at Mizzou sparked university-wide protests, a boycott by the school’s 4-5 football team, and eventually the resignation of the university’s president and chancellor. There’s only one problem: no evidence of the alleged incident, in which a poop swastika on the wall of a dormitory restroom was reported, has ever been made publicly available. Did this incident occur as reported, or was it an immaculate defecation that formed the foundation of an unimaginable deception?According to Billy Donley, the president of Mizzou’s Residence Halls Association (RHA), the poop swastika was...

    Before the Russian Airbus 321 was blown apart 30,000 feet over the Sinai by what a growing consensus of intelligence experts believe to be a bomb planted by a passenger or airport worker, a man who would later fight and die for the Islamic State (IS) worked at the Minneapolis airport with security clearance and access to the tarmac and aircraft. It could have happened here. It may yet. As Investor’s Business Daily reported in September, 2014: Fox affiliate KMSP-TV in Minneapolis-St. Paul has reported the case of Abdirahmaan Muhumed, who, before he went to Syria to fight and die...

    Earlier today the Obama White House attempted to downplay any links to ISIS in relation to the recent Russian airline disaster that took place shortly after Metrojet Flight 9268 took off from Egypt last week on its way back to Russia, killing everyone on board. For days British officials have quietly suggested foul play while U.S. officials were noticeably tight-lipped. Now some within American intelligence are voicing very similar thoughts to their British counterparts, despite the Obama White House’s apparent desire that no official statement on the matter be made. As for Russia’s Vladimir Putin, he is said to be...

    In the 14 years since 9/11, you can count about six real terrorist attacks in the United States. These include the Boston Marathon bombings in 2013, as well as failed attacks, such as the time when a man named Faisal Shahzad tried to deliver a car bomb to Times Square. In those same 14 years, the Bureau, however, has bragged about how it's foiled dozens of terrorism plots. In all, the FBI has arrested more than 175 people in aggressive, undercover counterterrorism stings. These operations, which are usually led by an informant, provide the means and opportunity, and sometimes even...
