    US Dept. Defense ^ | Dec. 4, 2019 | C. Todd Lopez
    From GPS location services to communications, the United States' dependence on space capabilities is well documented, the vice commander of Air Force Space Command said. The command is focused now on finding ways to ensure the nation's continued access to space and to prevent adversaries from disrupting it. Chief among those efforts is recognizing threats posed by adversaries to current capabilities and finding ways to prevent them from being exploited, in particular, by hardening existing systems against threats, Air Force Lt. Gen. David D. Thompson said. "We are building in capabilities to protect and defend the space systems that we...

    A private association is putting out a call for volunteers, armed or unarmed, to provide outdoor security for Trump supporters traveling to the president’s campaign rally Friday night in Tupelo, Mississippi. The group “Oath Keepers,” which calls itself nonpartisan, said in a notice on its website that it needs help “keeping the rally attendees safe” after a recent Trump rally in Minneapolis at which some of the president’s supporters were harassed and assaulted on their way to and from the arena. “We generally use both armed and unarmed volunteers in our security operations, so if you have a CCW [carrying...

    WASHINGTON DC (Kurdistan 24) – US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo spoke on Monday with Turkish Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu and reiterated Washington’s insistence on protecting its allies in Syria, as it withdraws forces from that country.In a phone conversation with Cavusoglu, Pompeo emphasized “the importance that the United States places on the protection of forces that worked with the United States and the Global Coalition to Defeat ISIS,” according to a summary of their discussion issued by State Department Deputy Spokesperson Robert Palladino.The principle US ally in the fight against the Islamic State in Syria has been the Syrian...

    United Nations Secretary General Antonio Guterres on Friday condemned Israel's "violence" towards Gaza and suggested an international peacekeeping force could protect Gazans in Judea, Samaria, and Gaza. The peacekeeping force could be made of civilian observers, an armed military, or a police force. Guterres also proposed increasing humanitarian aid. His suggestions come after the submission of a 14-page report requested by the General Assembly in June response to a surge of violence in Gaza. On Friday night, Israeli Ambassador to the UN Danny Danon emphasized that "the only protection the Palestinian people need is from their own leadership." "Instead of...

    MANBIJ, SYRIA/WASHINGTON — As part of the global coalition against Islamic State, the United States this week increased its special operations troops in the flashpoint town of Manbij in northern Syria. In an email Thursday to VOA, Col. Thomas F. Veale, a U.S. military spokesperson and public affairs director for the coalition, said the recent deployment is a protection measure to ensure the safety of coalition troops in the area. “Coalition forces are establishing a joint coordination mechanism for operations there, through the coalition's official relationship with the Manbij Military Council,” Veale said. Manbij, in northern Syria, has recently become...

    Never Trump hack, Jeff Flake (R-AZ) continued to prove he’s the RINO of all RINO’s by going against President Trump, the conservative base and the American citizens by urging Congress to take “immediate action to protect DACA kids”. Many of these DACA ‘kids’ are actually adults, however; the media wants people to believe that the vast majority are helpless children and babies. The good news? A new poll shows Arizona Senator Jeff Flake is in big trouble, in what might be the toughest political race of his career. AZ Highground reports Flake is trailing Kelli Ward by 14%. Vote the...
  • Trump Releases His Plan for 2nd Amendment… Leaves Millions Furious

    11/19/2016 10:55:16 AM PST · by Enlightened1 · 44 replies
    One common criticism of billionaire businessman and President-elect Donald Trump is that he far too often speaks in vague generalities and rarely offers specifics about where he stands on the issues. That is no longer the case, at least regarding his stance on gun rights and the Second Amendment, after Trump released his official policy position on his campaign website. “The Second Amendment to our Constitution is clear. The right of the people to keep and bear Arms shall not be infringed upon. Period,” the position paper began. Trump went on to explain that the right to keep and bear arms is a right that pre-exists...

    House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi on Tuesday called on the House to take up legislation to ban guns from terrorist suspects, and said Congress needs to take this step to fulfill its duty to protect all Americans from violence. "We cannot remain silent," the California Democrat said at a hearing of the Democrats' Gun Violence Prevention Task Force. "For us to honor the responsibilities that we have to protect and defend the American people, we must not only have moments of silence, we must have days of action." "To start, we can and must bring up the bipartisan Deny Firearms...

    July 9, 2015 The Office of Personnel Management announced Thursday that a breach of a database that contained federal employees' background-check information led to the theft of 21.5 million individuals' Social Security numbers. And the personnel agency said it would notify the affected individuals and supply them with at least three years of credit monitoring and identity-fraud protection services. But it has not yet awarded a contract for the notifications or fraud-protection services, or even put out a request for contractors to respond to, according to multiple sources. OPM press secretary Sam Schumach said Thursday night he was not aware...

    New York City policemen are under no obligation to protect the city’s denizens from harm. So says the city in response to a lawsuit by a man who was attacked on the subway by a man with a knife. Joseph Lozito said police officers Terrance Howell and Tamara Taylor, who were on the subway at the same time, ignored Maksim Gelman as he stormed about the subway in a drug-fueled rage. They even dismissed other passengers who tried to warn them about Gelman’s actions. Lozito identified Gelman as the man who approached him telling him he was going to die...

    Senate Democrats introduced legislation on Wednesday that would ban marketing electronic cigarettes to teens. Despite their admission that the health implications of electronic cigarettes “are not yet clear,” Senators Barbara Boxer (D., Calif.), Dick Durbin (D., Ill.), Tom Harkin (D., Iowa), Richard Blumenthal (D., Conn.), and Edward Markey (D., Mass.) introduced the bill to “protect children” from the smoking simulators.

    A man who was brutally stabbed by Brooklyn subway slasher Maksim Gelman two years ago had his negligence case against the city dismissed in court yesterday, despite the fact that two transit officers had locked themselves in a motorman's car only a few feet from him at the time of the attack. Gelman stabbed Joseph Lozito in the face, neck, hands and head on an uptown 3 train in February 2011, after fatally stabbing four people and injuring three others in a 28-hour period. Lozito, a father of two and an avid martial arts fan, was able to tackle Gelman...

    Breitbart's Big Peace ^ | June 12, 2013 | Professor Peter Morici
    The revelation that the National Security Agency is tracking every phone call each American makes, and broadly mining internet data puts President Obama at the center of yet another controversy. He and supporters in the Republican leadership, not Edward Snowden, are making themselves villains. Two sets of issues are central. Do NSA practices strike a reasonable balance between the threats posed by global terrorism and right to privacy? Are these the least intrusive necessary? Are safeguards against abuse adequate? Will Edward Snowden be thrown in jail for revealing classified information under the Espionage Act or other statutes? The president argues...

    NSA leaker Ed Snowden claimed to have broken both of his legs while training for Special Forces. "In 2003, he enlisted in the US army and began a training program to join the Special Forces. Invoking the same principles that he now cites to justify his leaks, he said: "I wanted to fight in the Iraq war because I felt like I had an obligation as a human being to help free people from oppression"." That is simply not true as the statement from the Special Warfare Center & School below clearly points out. "Snowden was never a student at...

    The New American ^ | March 25th | Raven Clabough
    President Obama’s actions in Libya were already suspicious for a number of reasons. First, during Obama’s presidential campaign, he asserted that his priority was to get America out of the two wars it was already fighting. Second, Obama was a staunch critic of the Bush administration for unconstitutionally embarking on a war without congressional approval — an action of which President Obama is now guilty. Finally, as the economy is teetering on collapse, one would assume the last thing the President would want is to have to fund a third war. And yet here we are. However, once we delve...

    Gun control isn’t about banning guns, it’s about banning people who aren’t well-connected from having guns. If you’re a Wal-Mart shopper then you’re not supposed to have a gun. If you’re David Brock, then that’s a whole other story… A staffer at left-wing Media Matters for America committed numerous felonies in the District of Columbia and around the country by carrying a firearm to defend the organization’s founder, David Brock, The Daily Caller has learned. -SNIP-TheDC has learned that by that time, Brock had armed his assistant — who had no permit to carry a concealed firearm — with a...

    Via Beltway Confidential: President Obama wants tighter gun control laws, but he does appreciate that armed Secret Service agents protect his daughters every day on their way to school. “It might come in handy to have these super locks,” Obama joked at Master Lock in Wisconsin, noting that he will soon have two teenage daughters. “For now, I’m just counting on the fact that when they go to school there are men with guns with them.”
