  • 2016 was a deadly year for cops — and BLM may be to blame

    Blue lives matter — now as much as ever. It was Dec. 20, 2014. As New York City Police Officers Rafael Ramos and Wenjian Liu sat in their squad car in Brooklyn, suddenly and without warning, they were ambushed by gun-wielding assassin Ismaaiyl Brinsley, 28. The madman had driven from Baltimore to the city, ranting on Instagram that he planned to put “wings on pigs” to avenge the deaths at the hands of police of Eric Garner and Michael Brown. The deranged murderer then fled into a nearby subway station, where he committed suicide by gun as cops closed in....

    Khalid Sheik Mohammed: George W. Bush's Shock and Awe Response to 9/11 Prevented Other Attacks Far from trying to draw us in, KSM said that al-Qaeda expected the United States to respond to 9/11 as we had the 1983 bombing of the Marine barracks in Beirut — when, KSM told Mitchell, the United States ‘turned tail and ran.’ ‘Then he looked at me and said, ‘How was I supposed to know that cowboy George Bush would announce he wanted us ‘dead or alive’ and then invade Afghanistan to hunt us down?’’ Mitchell writes. ‘KSM explained that if the United States...

    (CNN) -- Three Americans are fighting alongside Kurdish forces against the Islamic State terror group in northern Syria, a spokesman for the Kurdish group told CNN on Thursday. One of the Americans was identified by the Kurdish People's Protection Units, also known as the YPG, as Jordan Matson of Wisconsin. Matson is fighting in Haska province near the town of Jazaa, close to the Iraqi border, YPG spokesman Redur Xelil said by telephone.

    At least 28 people have been killed and 113 injured after a group of knife-wielding men hacked their way through innocent people at one of China's busiest railway stations. Distressing photos circulating online showed bodies, pools of blood and abandoned luggage scattered across the terminal floor at Kunming Railway Station in Yunnan province. Authorities described the incident at about 9pm local time (1pm GMT) as an 'organised, premeditated, violent terrorist attack.' Police shot dead five of the unidentified attackers and were searching for around five others, according to state media.
  • 'Fight terrorists until full elimination': Putin changes New Year address after Volgograd

    01/01/2014 3:11:33 AM PST · by kronos77 · 11 replies
    The deadly suicide attacks in Volgograd forced Vladimir Putin to make changes to his traditional New Year address, with the Russian President promising to wage “a confident, tough and consistent” war on terror until total victory. “The inhumane terrorist acts in Volgograd” were among the biggest challenges Russia faced in 2013, the Putin said in his address to the nation, broadcast minutes before the New Year. “In the time of challenges Russia always stood united and solid,” he stressed. At least 34 people have lost their lives and over 80 injured in two suicide blasts in Russia’s southern city of...

    In an exclusive interview with RT, President Bashar Assad said that the conflict in Syria is not a civil war, but proxy terrorism by Syrians and foreign fighters. He also accused the Turkish PM of eyeing Syria with imperial ambitions. Assad told RT that the West creates scapegoats as enemies – from communism, to Islam, to Saddam Hussein. He accused Western countries of aiming to turn him into their next enemy. While mainstream media outlets generally report on the crisis as a battle between Assad and Syrian opposition groups, the president claims that his country has been infiltrated by numerous...

    After speaking with 'The Grand Jihad' author Andrew C. McCarthy last night, Freedom Radio answered the preeminent post-9/11 question: where are the moderate Muslims? The mainstream media parades one myth after another on TV, talk radio, online, and in the newspapers. America is not fooled. The reason why we keep asking that question is there are no moderate Muslims. Are we doomed? No. Yet we better first rip the microphone away from the vast, deeply entrenched, and blood-thirsty Muslim Brotherhood's greater jihad operation -- aka CAIR, MAS, ISNA, NAIT, MSA, IIIT, and FCNA -- that currently controls the voice of...

Al-Bahri, who is currently residing in Yemen, revealed to the London-based paper that he always carried bullets in order to kill Bin-Laden should the al-Qaida leader be arrested.

    Bam, wake up and smell the war Wednesday, January 27th 2010, 4:00 AM The evidence is mounting that President Obama is following not merely an erroneous anti-terrorism strategy, but one that is increasingly incoherent and incompetent. Two recent developments highlight his failure: First, senior administration intelligence and homeland security officials testified to Congress that they were not aware in advance that the Christmas Day terrorist, Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab, would be read Miranda rights, arrested and charged with crimes. Stunningly, it appears that these decisions were essentially made wholly inside the Justice Department. Second, the administration has conceded that some 50...

Four militants were also arrested and a hunt to arrest their mentors was launched.

However, they said, Hamas' West Bank cells include several skilled bombmakers who are investing great effort in trying to upgrade their weapons.

The attack triggered a strong reaction in Miramshah where hundreds of seminary students besieged several checkposts of paramilitary forces. Pitched battles between locals and security forces continued for hours. North Waziristan Agency’s political agent Zaheerul Islam claimed that most of the people killed in the attack on the Dandy Saidgay village, about 15km from Miramshah, belonged to Central Asia.

    The Hamas terror organization, expected to garner as much as 50% of the vote in the PA parliamentary election scheduled for next week, remains steadfast in its goal of annihilating the Jewish state. The leader of the group in Gaza, Mahmoud A-Zahar, recently rebutted charges that the Hamas was taking a more pragmatic stance ahead of the PA parliamentary elections, and that it would be willing to recognize Israel within the country’s pre-1967 boundaries. On January 13, A-Zahar said at a rally in Khan Yunis that the Hamas would not enter into negotiations with Israel in light of the Oslo...

    Suicide Bomber Kills 32 at Iraq Funeral By JASON STRAZIUSO, Associated Press Writer A suicide bomber killed 32 mourners and wounded dozens at a funeral for the nephew of a Shiite politician, one of several attacks Wednesday across Iraq that killed a total of 53 people. The sudden surge in violence followed three weeks of relative calm after Iraq's landmark parliamentary elections on Dec. 15 and came as its three major political parties neared a deal on forming a coalition government that a Shiite politician said would include Shiites, Sunni Arabs and Kurds. In the worst attack of the day,...

    In the President’s address to the nation Sunday the 18th, 2005, he made this statement, “It is true that Saddam Hussein had a history of pursuing and using weapons of mass destruction. It is true that he systematically concealed those programs, and blocked the work of U.N. weapons inspectors. It is true that many nations believed that Saddam had weapons of mass destruction. But much of the intelligence turned out to be wrong.” This is the confession many Americans have been demanding for years now and for what-ever reason, the President decided to make this confession before the world community...

    Thu Dec 8, 9:43 AM ET BAGHDAD (Reuters) - A co-defendant in the trial of Saddam Hussein complained on Wednesday about the quality of cigarettes the U.S. military gave him while in custody. Barzan Ibrahim al-Tikriti, Saddam's former intelligence chief and one of his most feared sidekicks, also said the food was bad and he was not given blankets. He lost 18 kilos in just two months in captivity, he complained. "We were detained by one of the wealthiest countries in the world, yet it was only after four months in detention that they gave me cigarettes," said Barzan, charged...

    The government of the United States and the elected officials of the United States seem to be at odds. It seems that the ability to hold a secret is slipping away from the Bureaubrats that have become what appears to be permanent residents of Washington at the expense of the Citizenry pocket as well as Citizenry freedom. We elect new people but such operations as the State Department only get new Overlords. The Citizenry votes for change only to receive a cosmetic brush over of what is already in progress for their electoral effort. What is the secret? The secret...

    CAMP FALLUJAH, Iraq (August 5, 2005) -- Coming to Iraq, the Marines of Weapons Company, 3rd Battalion, 8th Marine Regiment knew they would be fighting as ‘street cops’ on the roads. The job includes locating hidden bombs before the enemy could use them against the Marines, Iraqi Security Forces and civilians. Their most recent find on a combat patrol brought their total number of bombs found to nearly 200. Over the past six months, they have maintained a ratio of three found to one detonated. “We are successful at this because we are outsmarting them and they’re very predictable,” explained...

    Remarks by Secretary of Homeland Security Michael Chertoff at the 2005 Excellence in Government Conference Washington, D.C. Excellence in Government Conference July 25, 2005 Secretary Chertoff:  Well, thank you, Pat, for that introduction, and thank you for that musical introduction. I don't think I've ever actually gotten on the stage with a song being played. Maybe I'm going to start asking for that. Maybe we'll play the "Rocky" theme or -- I don't want to continue along that vein. But it's a great pleasure to be here at this breakfast. I'm thrilled at the attendance here, because I think it...
  • The Brooklyn Connection - PBS Documentary POV

    Freepers, how many of you watched this PBS documentary Tuesday night? "The Brooklyn Connection" shows the terrifying ease with which a charming Brooklyn businessman (an Albanian Kosovar) raised $30 million during the Kosovo War, purchased weapons across the USA, and shipped them to Albania to be smuggled into Kosovo. These immigrants bragged about killing UN peacekeepers, Serbs, or anybody else who will get in their way. What I found most interesting, in addition to the Brooklyn Businessman's multiple ties to the Kosovar Liberation Army, was the glee with which John Kerry and Richard Holbrook personally accepted over $500,000.00 in campaign...
