    The officer – who local media has said is female – wiped out the jihadis seconds after they rammed their Audi A3 through crowds and into her police car. As her partner lay wounded in the vehicle, the outnumbered officer faced a one-on-one clash with the crazed gang, who escaped their overturned car and marched towards her armed with machetes, axes and knives. The Trooper agent, who had been on a routine patrol, acted fast to fire rounds and take out four of the five-strong mob before they caused more bloodshed on the public. The final suspect attempted to flee...

John Pershing executing dozens of Muslim prisoners with bullets dipped in pigs' blood, telling people to read up on the history after a terror attack in Barcelona, Spain, left more than a dozen people dead Thursday. "Study what General Pershing of the United States did to terrorists when caught. There was no more Radical Islamic Terror for 35 years!"

Now, after the Madrid terror attack, we see another European ally succumb to appeasement.... Hanson: Well, even before the terrorists' communiques were fully disseminated the Spanish electorate voted for appeasement and a socialist government that would distance itself from the United States. This is the most profound example of capitulation since Daladier and Chamberlain and sets a truly awful example... Worse, this was not panic from a fickle leader but an overwhelming expression of public fear and...

    Spain will not set as a condition in Brexit talks that it recovers Gibraltar, its foreign minister said in a Sunday interview that could ease tensions over the disputed British territory. Nestled on Spain’s southern tip, Gibraltar has been under British control since 1713, but Madrid has long wanted it back. Authorities in the tiny rocky outcrop fear Spain will influence complex negotiations between the EU and Britain to leave the bloc to try and gain authority over Gibraltar. But in an interview with Spain’s conservative daily ABC, Alfonso Dastis said he didn’t want to “jeopardize” the deal by demanding...

    First lady Melania Trump's wax doppelganger was unveiled Thursday at Spain's Museo de Cera de Madrid. The wax museum recreated Trump's look from last year's Republican National Convention in Cleveland, where she took to the stage and spoke to party delegates in a rousing speech. The wax figure's debut was timed to the one-year anniversary of the convention. Trump's wax figure -- which stands next to an existing wax figure of her husband, President Donald Trump -- wears the same Roksanda dress with puffed sleeves she wore at the RNC. The wax figure also dons a pair of nude heels,...
