Former CIA agent Mathison (Claire Danes) is back in the first trailer for Showtime’s Homeland season 7, which depicts the show’s heroes and villains alike struggling against an overreaching and civil rights-abusing president.

    Now, some of the critics watching "Homeland" have — there’s a big story at NewsBusters featuring an interview with the cast. What everybody thinks has happened in Homeland is that after six years of naming Islamofascists as the bad guys, that Americans have become the bad guys. And that’s only half the story. That’s only half of what they’ve done on Homeland. This is amazing. And I’ll get to it in due course.

    Have you been watching Showtime's Homeland? It's deep into jihad-supporting territory. That's nothing new by itself. It's taken a hard turn that way since this season began. Before that, too, but not quite as far as this. The question is, how far? The answer is given by checking who they hired to advise the show: Ramzi Kassem is a Muslim-activist, Gitmo lawyer and columnist for Al-Jazeera. Do you remember when President Obama promised to "close" Guantanamo? Ramzi Kassem opposed those plans because they weren't good enough for the jihadis. To be fair, Obama's plan was always a fraud. Moving Guantanamo...

    The presence of Department of Homeland Security (DHS) police officers on light-rail trains in the Twin Cities provoked unease among some passengers Wednesday. Several took to Twitter to express their dismay. But Metro Transit said the DHS officers are part of a Visible Intermodal Prevention and Response (VIPR) team working with its own police force to help ensure security on public trains and buses. The VIPR officers do not engage in any enforcement actions, and have worked with the department for “more than a decade,” said Metro Transit spokesman Howie Padilla.

    LONDON — The UK government on Thursday rolled out a policy stating that refugees can be sent back to their homeland if conditions in their country suddenly improve. The guidelines, drawn up by the Home Office, also state that when refugees apply for settlement protection after their mandatory five-year probation period in the UK, their applications will be "subject to a safe return review." Prime Minister Theresa May outlined her ambition to make these changes in 2015 when she was home secretary. In her address at the Conservative Party conference that year, she said: "When a refugee’s temporary stay of...

Camacho-Ali was let go after she showed...

    Before I even talk about DHS employees being locked out of the computer system…lets look back at a prior story on DHS. A government watchdog agency is investigating allegations that Department of Homeland Security officials improperly attempted to breach the Georgia secretary of state’s internal elections network last year. In a Jan. 17 letter to Georgia Secretary of State Brian Kemp, DHS Inspector General John Roth said his office was probing “a series of ten alleged scanning events of the Georgia Secretary of State’s network” that may have originated from DHS-affiliated IP addresses. DHS IG spokeswoman Erica Paulson confirmed the...

    On Trial: Lawsuits Against Trump On ‘Muslim Immigration Ban’ Will Fail Fast by Robert Barnes | 10:09 am, January 28th, 2017 Council American-Islamic Relations announced an intention to sue President Donald Trump over his executive order banning most immigrants from Syria, and other countries that lack certain vetting standards and have issues with terrorism. Overnight, refugees who were in the air on the way to the United States are now being detained, and have also filed legal actions. The ban is perceived by some as a partial Muslim ban. Either way, at any trial, the law supports Trump’s order, and...

    Migrants granted leave to remain in Switzerland on the basis that they risk death in their homelands are using welfare money to fund holidays back home, the Basler Zeitung reports. The Swiss newspaper notes that thousands of migrants each year are heading to Eritrea for their holidays each year despite their having supposedly fled the northeast African nation in fear of their lives. Although a large proportion of Eritreans in Switzerland have been refused asylum, authorities are powerless to deport them because their homelands are deemed to be too dangerous by the country’s refugee policy. While there are no direct...

    Citing increasingly sophisticated cyber bad actors and an election infrastructure that's "vital to our national interests," Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson is designating U.S. election systems critical infrastructure, a move that provides more federal help for state and local governments to keep their election systems safe from tampering. "Given the vital role elections play in this country, it is clear that certain systems and assets of election infrastructure meet the definition of critical infrastructure, in fact and in law," Johnson said in a statement Friday. He added: "Particularly in these times, this designation is simply the right and obvious thing...

A group is taking issue with the words "Islamic terrorists" as they appear on the monument in Owego. The Islamic Organization of the Southern Tier worries the wording could encourage hatred towards Muslims living in the city, painting all Muslims with the same brush, they say.

    See Something, Say Nothing A Homeland Security Officer Exposes the Govt. Submission to Jihad One day after a prominent U.S. Muslim leader reacted to the November 2015 Paris attacks with a declaration that the Islamic State, also known as ISIS, has nothing to do with Islam, President Obama made the same assertion. Who exactly is the enemy we face, not only in the Middle East but also within our borders? Is it “murderers without a coherent creed” or “nihilistic killers who want to tear things down,” as some described ISIS after 130 people were brutally slain and another 368 injured...

In fact, Lisa Monaco warned that the threats are becoming ‘broader, more diffuse, and less predicable than at any time” since the 9/11 attacks. Call it Obama’s legacy. Unfortunately, as former clandestine CIA officer Clare Lopez and I point out in a new book, See No Sharia, our first lines of defense against...
