  • Here We Go Again

    For the second time in two months, someone who has pledged allegiance to the Islamic State has plotted to kill innocents in New York City and has executed his plot. According to police, at the height of the Monday morning rush hour this week, in an underground pedestrian walkway that I have used many times, in the middle of Manhattan, a permanent legal resident of the United States named Akayed Ullah detonated a bomb he had strapped to his torso in an effort to kill fellow commuters and massively disrupt life in New York. The bomb was inartfully constructed, and...

    SYRIA — ISIS is initiating a caliphate-wide safety stand-down after one of its members injured himself on Monday with his own explosive device in New York City, sources confirmed today. “This is a chance for us to stop operations and come together as a family to figure out what we are doing wrong,” said Akbar Muhammad, Director of Standardization and Training for ISIS. What should have been a routine operation on Monday to maim innocent civilians instead turned into another embarrassing stain on the caliphate’s already sullied reputation. Akayed Ullah’s failed attempt resulted in zero casualties while injuring himself in...

The would-be Islamic State terrorist is rumored to be responding to the recognition of Jerusalem as Israel's capital city days earlier.

    One of the first police officers to respond to the Pulse nightclub massacre is losing his job with only months to go before he’s entitled to full pension benefits. He called on Florida lawmakers to do more to support first responders who suffer from post-traumatic stress disorder. The Eatonville Town Council agreed unanimously Tuesday night to pay Cpl. Omar Delgado some $1,200 in accrued sick time when his job ends at year’s end, the Orlando Sentinel reported. Delgado was lauded as a hero for saving nightclub shooting victim Angel Colon during the June 2016 shooting, which killed 49 people. He...
  • Western Jihadists Who Joined ISIS Fear for Their Lives, Beg to Be Sent Home

    An increasing number of jihadists active in Syria are fearing for their lives. The result: they want to go back to the Western countries where most of them were born and raised. It must be a major disappointment for many extremist European Muslims who have traveled to Syria in recent years, hoping that they could live in their own version of heaven. Meaning: a horrific, brutal empire in which Islamist extremists can do whatever they please, like raping non-Muslim women, throwing gays from rooftops, and taking non-Muslims as slaves. For a few years, these extremists got what they had dreamed...

    The head of Germany’s domestic intelligence agency warned Sunday of the risk wives and children of Islamic State fighters pose upon their return to Europe. About one-third of the close to 1,000 Germans who travelled to fight for ISIS have returned to the country. Hans-Georg Maassen, the head of Germany’s Office for the Protection of the Constitution (BfV), warned that many women and children “had become so radicalized and identify so deeply with IS-ideology that, by all accounts, they must also be identified as jihadis.”“There are children who have been brainwashed and highly radicalized at ‘schools’ in IS-held areas,” Maassen...

    A former official with the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) says Americans will have to “adjust” to a new country where terrorism is routine because halting immigration is “not who we are.” Former Assistant Director for Counterintelligence at the FBI C. Frank Figliuzzi writes in a piece for NBC News that terrorism in the United States is changing quickly to a strategy where terrorism is merely mitigated and contained. Rather than halting immigration from particularly dangerous and terrorist-sanctioned regions of the world, Figliuzzi says Americans may have to change the way they live, noting how Americans in the car rental...

    Wait. It comes as a surprise to President Trump that many world leaders, especially from the Middle East, oppose him recognizing Jerusalem as Israel's historic and undivided capital? Facing dark warnings of a historic misstep and widespread unrest, US President Donald Trump on Monday delayed a decision on whether to recognize Jerusalem as the Israeli capital and move the US embassy there. The White House said Trump would miss a deadline to decide on shifting the embassy from Tel Aviv, after a frantic 48 hours of public warnings from allies and private phone calls between world leaders. When he was...

    Victory for President Trump: President Donald Trump won a big victory Monday in the Supreme Court, which upheld his “extreme vetting” on immigration into the United States. The dispute over the policy stemmed from its application to six majority-Muslim countries. Lower federal courts in California, Hawaii, and Maryland ruled the ban was unconstitutional. The ban was originally aimed at Sudan, Iran, Libya, Somalia, Syria, and Yemen, all states with serious terror-related issues. In September, however, the White House reversed the policy by taking Sudan off the list, and adding North Korea, Venezuela, and Chad to it. [TWEET BY NIGEL FARAGE]...

    Last week PJ Media D.C. editor Bridget Johnson was suspended from Twitter with no warning or explanation. It's been nearly a week now and thus far Twitter has yet to offer a reason for the suspension. According to Twitter's Help Center, there are two types of suspension — a temporary timeout that results in reinstatement in a matter of hours, and a second, much more serious "permanent" suspension. Bridget's appears to be the latter. The company did not flag a particular tweet that was problematic and her request for an appeal has gone unanswered. While many Twitter users engage in...
  • Relatives of Berlin Christmas Market Victims Pen Angry Letter to Merkel

    Relatives of the 12 people who were killed in last year's horrific terror attack at a Christmas market in Berlin have spoken out publicly against the treatment they've gotten from German Chancellor Angela Merkel. One of their complaints is that, although it was a widely publicized and horrific attack, Merkel has not expressed personal condolences. Apparently, "Mutti Merkel" is so busy creating an even bigger and more powerful EU that she can't spare the time to reach out to terror victims' families. The relatives wrote an open letter that was published by German news magazine Der Spiegel on Friday. In...

    A poster is being circulated among ISIS supporters that shows a man driving in a car with a gun and a backpack towards the Vatican. In English lettering reads, “Christmas blood,” and “So wait…” on a second line. The Christmas season has been a time for Islamist terrorists to strike in the past. The “underwear bomber” attempted to blow up a plane around Christmastime in 2009. The heinous terror attack in San Bernardino, California, began at a Christmas party when Syed Farook and his wife Tashfeen Malik killed 14 of their co-workers in 2015. Terror experts have warned that the...

    In a little-noticed move recently, President Donald Trump’s administration reversed a policy adopted by his predecessor that made it easier for foreigners with terrorism ties to get into the United States. Former President Barack Obama’s administration had instructed U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) officers to withhold decisions — and give the Homeland Security secretary an opportunity to grant a waiver — regarding certain foreigners who otherwise would be inadmissible under U.S. law. [snip] A policy memo issued in 2009 instructed USCIS officers to withhold decisions in four categories of foreigners to give the secretary of the Department of Homeland...

    New York City attack suspect Sayfullo Saipov professed himself “pleased with the outcome of my holy jihad against the unbelievers. I could have slain more if it hadn’t been for the interference of the bus and getting shot by the police, but eight is a respectable count. Luckily, one of those I killed was a Jew. I will get extra benefits in paradise for that. If every Muslim could slay as many unbelievers as I have all religions except for Islam would be erased from the Earth.” John Miller, deputy New York police commissioner for intelligence, said “Saipov appears to...

    Former NYPD commissioner Ray Kelly warned Sunday Americans should brace for more ISIS-inspired bloodbaths like last week’s Halloween truck attack in lower Manhattan. “This is the reality we are going to have to live with,” Kelly told John Catsimatidis in an interview on the “Cats Roundtable” radio show on 970 AM. “The terrorist attack on Halloween was terrible, but it is the type of thing that is so easy to do by these Islamic radicals that unfortunately we are going to see more of it.” Kelly decried the internet accessibility of materials that could inspire these sorts of attacks.

    Failed presidential candidate Hillary Clinton lambasted President Donald Trump for his “lack of empathy” following the New York City terror attack that killed eight people. “Calling the unfortunate man who was driven to make this attack an ‘animal’ and demanding he face the death penalty was so cruel and callous,” the former Secretary of State asserted. “Where was the sympathy for a man wrested from his native Uzbekistan and thrust into an America teeming with the unbelievers that his faith commands him to kill?” She went on to contrast “Trump’s bloodthirsty desire for vengeance with the kindness and compassion shown...
  • BuzzFeed Columnist, Responding to NYC Terror Attack: 'Ban Cars from Big Cities'

    A BuzzFeed columnist has declared that "Cars donÂ’t belong on the streets of big cities, and we should do everything in our power to get rid of them." She can't be serious? The headline is "We Should Ban Cars from Big Cities. Seriously." We've seen this idea proposed by environmentalists from time to time based on "climate change," and by urban planners in the name of creating a few blocks of open space, but Jessie Singer's advocacy of a total ban is largely in response to Tuesday's terrorist attack in New York City. Singer's column clearly has management's approval, given...

    Wednesday on “CNN Newsroom,” CNN legal analyst Paul Callan weighed in on President Donald Trump’s “really shocking” comments regarding the suspected New York terrorist. Following the attack, Trump referred to the suspected terrorist, Sayfullo Saipov, as an “animal” deserving of the death penalty. Callan said the president is “suggesting” that the suspect should be taken out and shot instead of going through the justice system. “I would say it’s amazing but it’s not, because every day he says things that no other president has ever said, and that are really shocking,” Callan told host Brooke Baldwin.
