    As information was still coming in regarding Monday’s attempted terror attack in the New York City subway, an MSNBC panel discussing the news ridiculously shifted the topic to outrage over guns and gun crime in the U.S. And on top of that, they bemoaned how President Trump would try to make the attack an immigration issue to support his temporary travel ban.The person responsible for kicking off the gun discussion was former NYPD Commissioner Bill Bratton. After commenting on how few terror attacks have hit the U.S. since 9/11 (missing a few as he rattled them off), he opined: We will continue to...

    Slaughterbots: a weapon of the future This fictional video was created as a warning about what may be real in the near future: tiny little drones with artificial intelligence, facial recognition, and enough explosive to destroy a person’s head. One drone can kill one specific person. A big group of drones can kill a large number of specific people, or an entire city for that matter.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9CO6M2HsoIA

    THE REAL MEANING OF PEACE There once was a King who offered a prize to the artist who would paint the best picture of peace. Many artists tried. The King looked at all the pictures, but there were only two he really liked and he had to choose between them. One picture was of a calm lake. The lake was a perfect mirror for the peaceful towering mountains all around. Overhead was a blue sky with fluffy white clouds. All who saw this picture thought that it was a perfect picture of peace. The other...

    The Army-Navy game is special, unlike any other. As such, it requires a different introduction than say, Arkansas-Missouri. And I am thrilled to report that CBS Sports was up to the task. Heres the introduction theyll show before kickoff this afternoon. Its powerful without overstepping the line of self-importance. Most impressively, it puts the actual game in proper context.

  • US moves to block transgender military recruits signing up

    AFP ^ | 12/7/17 | Staff
    Washington (AFP) - President Donald Trump's administration has asked a federal court to block the Pentagon from starting the hiring of transgender recruits next year. The filing by the Justice Department late on Wednesday is the latest in a series of legal measures that have unfolded since Trump sent out three tweets in July saying that transgender troops could not serve "in any capacity" in the military. Those tweets, later followed by a formal White House memorandum, set off a roar of protest -- with several service members and rights groups quick to sue. Two federal courts have since temporarily...

    BAGHDAD Hundreds of ISIS fighters had just been chased out of a northern Syrian city and were fleeing through the desert in long convoys, presenting an easy target to U.S. A-10 "warthogs." But the orders to bomb the black-clad jihadists never came, and the terrorists melted into their caliphate -- living to fight another day. The events came in August 2016, even as then-Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump was vowing on the campaign trail to let generals in his administration crush the organization that, under President Obama, had grown from the jayvee team to the worlds most feared terrorist...

    The Trump administration is asking a federal judge to delay a requirement to begin accepting transgender recruits to the military on Jan. 1. Specifically, Defendants request that the Court stay the portion of its preliminary injunction requiring Defendants to begin accessing transgender individuals into the military on January 1, 2018, pending a decision by the D.C. Circuit on Defendants appeal, the government wrote in a motion filed late Wednesday. The administration and the plaintiffs have asked for a decision by noon Monday. In October, Judge Colleen Kollar-Kotelly of the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia blocked President Trumps...
