    China is establishing its first military base in Africa, according to a top U.S. general, providing yet another sign of its growing reach beyond the Asia Pacific. "They are going to build a base in Djibouti, so that will be their first military location in Africa," U.S. Army Gen. David Rodriguez, the commander of U.S. Africa Command, recently told defense reporters. There has been speculation for years that China might establish a base in Djibouti, but Rodriguez said China has signed a 10-year contract with the African nation. The base, he said, would serve as a logistics hub for China...

    More than 50 spies working for the military have come out with shocking allegations: according to them, the Obama administration has taken their painfully honest assessments of the war against ISIS and effectively reinterpreted them to paint a rosy picture of things that reflects well on the president’s efforts against the terrorist group. The spies specifically went out of their way to clarify that it wasn’t just a matter of rogue agents telling falsehoods to advance their own careers. Rather, as one of the operatives involved said, “The cancer was within the senior level of command,” revealing how high this...

    Worried about security, these voters are shifting toward Ted Cruz. SIOUX CITY, Iowa-Hours after terrorists attacked a hotel in Mali and a week after Islamic State fighters struck Paris, Ted Cruz took the floor here to deliver a harsh critique of President Obama's Middle East posture and pledge a hardline approach to Syrian Muslim refugees.It was exactly what this crowd of mostly conservative Christians wanted - and an ominous sign for Iowa's weakened frontrunner, Ben Carson.Across the state and at a major gathering of politically active evangelicals on Friday night, foreign policy was top-of-mind for the voters and state lawmakers...

    Townhall.com ^ | November 20, 2015 | David Grantham
    While French authorities recover from the ferocious encounter with ISIS-linked militants in Paris yesterday, the Obama administration called Friday's attack a "setback" to an otherwise successful strategy. He went on to mock dissenters of his resettlement policies during a recent rally in Manila, proclaiming that plans to welcome thousands more Syrian refugees in the United States would go forward. As repeated instances of terrorism loom heavy over the resettlement debate, Americans find themselves torn between legitimate sympathy and genuine anxiety, unable to reconcile ever-present danger with America's inherent generosity. Some wish to accept them all. Others fear that more Muslim...

    For those keeping score, over the last few months, Senate Democrats have used the filibuster -- which they railed against and eroded while in the majority -- to block a bill to pay our troops, to prevent any vote on President Obama's reckless Iran deal, to hold up funding for the VA, and to obstruct legislation helping victims of human trafficking because it didn't spend taxpayer dollars on abortions. (One can only hope the NRSC is keeping track of these votes for future attack ads).  Harry's crew is angling to add another notch in their obstructionist belt, with Reid vowing to filibuster a post-Paris bill designed to beef up...

    The bodies of slaughtered Parisians were still unburied when our president, the leader of the most powerful country in history, beclowned himself on the world stage. In Turkey Obama gave a speech that surpassed even his long record of narcissistic petulance and juvenile snark. What we are witnessing is a willful destruction of America's prestige and authority unprecedented in our history. It's a sad day when the President of the United States makes a milquetoast French socialist like François Hollande sound like George S. Patton.

    The Service Employees International Union - fresh off its endorsement this week of Democratic presidential frontrunner Hillary Clinton - is launching a multimillion dollar advertising campaign blasting GOP candidates for their "anti-immigrant attacks." The campaign will target Republicans like Donald Trump, Marco Rubio, Ted Cruz, and Jeb Bush, who have suggested rolling back the Obama administration's immigration policies. It is timed to run over the one-year anniversary of the president's controversial executive order allowing millions of illegal immigrants to live in the U.S. "One year ago, President Obama took historic action, standing up for all families striving to achieve the...

    These are the stolen passports five Syrian men used in a failed attempt to travel to America via Honduras. The documents, allegedly stolen in Greece, were seized when the group arrived at Toncontín International Airport in Tegucigalpa. According to authorities, the group arrived from Costa Rica and had been planning to make their way to the border with neighboring Guatemala. CNN reports the group had been heading for San Pedro Sula, a city close to the border, where there is a known route used by South American immigrants to get to the United States. The men were arrested after security...

    **SNIP** Mocking Republicans over this-as liberals spent much of yesterday doing on my Twitter stream-seems absurdly out of touch to a lot of people. Not just wingnut tea partiers, either, but plenty of ordinary centrists too. It makes them wonder if Democrats seriously see no problem here. Do they care at all about national security? Are they really that detached from reality? The liberal response to this should be far more measured. We should support tight screening. Never mind that screening is already pretty tight. We should highlight the fact that we're accepting a pretty modest number of refugees. In...

    Members of the Board of Mayor and Aldermen voted Tuesday night against a motion supporting Gov. Maggie Hassan's stance against accepting Syrian refugees in the state, following last week’s attacks in France. Alderman Keith Hirschmann originally proposed the motion, saying the board would empower Mayor Ted Gatsas in any efforts to stop a potential influx of 500 refugees from Syria. That figure came from Manchester Police Chief Nick Willard, who said he was told by members of the FBI that 500 Syrian refugees could be headed to New Hampshire. "I was told during discussions with the FBI that 90,000 Syrian...

    Islamic supremacist groups such as the Hamas-linked Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) want and need hate crimes against Muslims, because they’re the currency they use to buy power and influence in our victimhood-oriented society, and to deflect attention away from jihad terror and onto Muslims as putative victims. Hamas-linked CAIR, designated a terror organization by the United Arab Emirates, and other Muslims have on many occasions not hesitated to stoop even to fabricating “hate crimes,” including attacks on mosques. Most notably, in February, a New Jersey Muslim was found guilty of murder that he tried to portray as an “Islamophobic”...

    House Speaker Paul Ryan is lining up a showdown vote for Thursday on President Obama's plan to resettle 10,000 Syrian refugees in the United States. But conservatives on Capitol Hill who want to see the refugee program halted are warning that Ryan's plan is nothing but a smokescreen designed to give lip-service while refusing to defund the program. Ryan likely has no intention of cutting off the flow of Muslim refugees into the U.S., nor does he plan to ensure Syria's persecuted Christian minority gets rescued from the clutches of ISIS, sources told WND.

It's the very definition of asymmetric warfare. In the aftermath, stores and movie theaters were closed, travelers faced long...

FPCON is the military's security posture to protect troops, their families, civilian employees, information, equipment and facilities against terrorist threats. FPCON Bravo -- the third-highest threat level on a five-tier scale used by the Department of Defense -- signals a climate in which "increased and more predictable threat[s] of terrorist activity" and "probable violence" exist, requiring higher security measures ranging from vehicle inspections, stricter ID checks...

    Marco Rubio embarked on something of a post-debate victory tour today, visiting six national morning shows to reflect on last night's proceedings. One of his stops was CBS This Morning, where puzzled host Charlie Rose pressed Rubio about what he meant when he said that last week's Benghazi hearings proved that Hillary Clinton had lied.  The Florida Senator basically reiterated his explanation from last night (via the Weekly Standard): Charlie Rose Sticks Up for Hillary in Interview With Rubio Rose counters with Clinton talking points, muddying the waters by blaming confusing and conflicting intelligence offered by the CIA -- but as they say, that...

    Yesterday was slightly heavy on the breaking news front, so this (not unexpected) development went largely overlooked.  President Obama held a photo-op to highlight his decision to veto the bipartisan National Defense Authorization Act, which appropriates $612 billion in defense spending -- a figure that matches Obama's military budget request.  Among other things, the legislation pays the troops and gives them a raise.  It sailed through the Senate with 70 votes, attracting dozens of Democratic votes at both ends of Capitol Hill.  But in an escalation of partisan politics, Obama has refused to sign the measure into law in an effort to coerce Republicans into...

    WASHINGTON The State Department was among the worst agencies in the federal government at protecting its computer networks while Hillary Clinton was secretary from 2009 to 2013, a situation that continued to deteriorate as John Kerry took office and Russian hackers breached the department's email system, according to independent audits and interviews...

    Regardless of who may be right or wrong on the current Trump/Bush keeping America safe debate, the bottom line is whose policies would you rather have in place going forward and which will keep America safer? Trump's deport and secure the border policy or Bush's amnesty and open borders?
  • Email Scandal: Hillary Could Face Real Jail Time As FBI Probe Intensifies

    If Hillary Clinton and her supporters thought her email problems were behind them after the Democratic debate, those hopes could soon be dashed. Fox News reported this week that the FBI is looking into whether there's been any violation of the Espionage Act as a result of her use of a private, unsecured email system while secretary of state. When classified material started showing up in Clinton's emails, she argued that she'd done nothing wrong because none of the emails she sent or received was marked "classified" at the time. But violating the Espionage Act doesn't require that the information...

    During an interview with 60 Minutes last weekend, President Obama made the bold and ignorant claim that Hillary Clinton's use of a private server during her time at the State Department didn't compromise U.S. national security."It is important for her to answer these questions to the satisfaction of the American public," Obama claimed. "I can tell you that this is not a situation in which Americas national security was endangered.Not only was Obama's statement out of line during an ongoing criminal FBI investigation of the former Secretary of State and Democrat presidential candidate, it holds no merit with the facts...

    The FBI seized four servers from the State Department building a few weeks ago as part of the investigation into classified material improperly stored on Hillary Clintons secret email server, particularly the Top Secret documents that have been discovered in her email trove. This revelation comes from Bill Gertz at the Washington Free Beacon, citing anonymous sources familiar with the investigation. Gertz notes that the State Department referred questions about the seized servers to the FBI, which declined to comment on the matter. It would be interesting to know exactly what the FBI computer forensics team is looking for on...

    WASHINGTON, D.C. –  U.S. Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) today sent a letter to Secretary of Homeland Security Jeh Johnson, Secretary of State John Kerry, Attorney General Loretta Lynch, and Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) Director James Comey. In his letter, Sen. Cruz acknowledges the need to address the humanitarian crisis in the region, but also shares grave concerns regarding the Administration’s intent to import tens of thousands of individuals from Syria and elsewhere who have not been properly vetted for ties to ISIS, al Qaeda, al Nusra and other radical Islamic terrorist groups. “In the current threat environment – with an...

    The company that Hillary Clinton paid to manage her private email network was the victim of a massive international hack during the period in which Clinton was employing it, Breitbart News has learned. Hillary Clinton used the company Internap as the internet service provider for her private email account during her tenure as Secretary of State. Internap, based in Atlanta, has a facility in Manhattan, near the the physical location of the IP address for clintonemail.com. In March 2011, the security company RSA was hacked. The hackers got into the companys system through a malware-infested email sent to an employee,...
