    An armed employee who was trying to shut down water filtration equipment at a northwest suburban water reclamation plant has been taken into custody. 911 callers reported an armed man, possibly with a hostage, trying to shut down equipment just before noon at the Fox River Water Reclamation District at 875 Dana Dr. in Elgin, according to Elgin police. Officers found the man, armed with a handgun, near the building and attempted to negotiate with him, police said. The man refused to surrender and officers used a rubber bullet, similar to a bean bag round, to incapacitate him. The man...

The Pentagon, State Department, and Department of Homeland Security would like this story to be over and done.... Here are my nagging questions about another hushed-up national-security incident the White House would prefer to whitewash: Why were officials so quick to tell the public that these men were not a threat to the public? ...

    What does it take before we're allowed to call domestic Islamic terrorism what it is? When James Foley was beheaded by a Muslim somewhere in the "Levant" the Obama administration called it a "terrorist attack against our country." They called it a "barbaric act."When a woman is beheaded by a Muslim in Oklahoma the Obama administration calls it "workplace violence." It seems that the alleged killer, a convert to Islam, was merely carrying out the dictates of the Quran. Muslims are commanded to fight unbelievers until they are either dead, converted to Islam, or in a permanent state of subjugation...

    The US State Department said Monday in a press conference that it disagrees with Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu's assertion during his UN speech on Monday that "ISIS and Hamas are branches of the same poisonous tree." "Obviously, we’ve designated both as terrorist organizations, but ISIL poses a different threat to Western interests and to the United States," said State Department spokeswoman Jen Psaki. "And that’s just a fact." Later on in the speech, Netanyahu said that Iran is still a great threat to Israel's existence. He also warned that Iran is not actually willing to give up nuclear weapons but...

    The Obama administration looks set to go weak in the knees in life-or-death negotiations over Iran’s nuclear program. From the start, the United States and its allies have pressed the mullahs to disable all but about 1,500 of their centrifuges. The logic: With that many machines in operation, should Tehran flip the switch to begin enriching weapons-grade nuclear material, the process of amassing enough uranium for an atom bomb would take a year. Cold comfort, but better than nothing. All the while, Iran has insisted that it needs all 9,400 of its spinning centrifuges, which, of course, ha ha, it...

    Arjen Robben has warned Bayern Munich to prepare psychologically for when they meet CSKA Moscow behind closed doors on Tuesday. The German champions play their Russian counterparts in the UEFA Champions League Group E clash at the Arena Khimki. However, no supporters will be in attendance as CSKA were sanctioned by UEFA in February after fans displayed "a range of racist and far-right symbols" in a Champions League match with Viktoria Plzen last December. The decision has riled Bayern chairman Karl Heinz-Rummenigge, who voiced his frustration that Bayern fans are unable to attend.

    DAVID FRUM, The Atlantic September 28, 2014If there has been one consistent theme to the Obama administration’s foreign policy, it has been the yearning for some kind of deal with the ruling Iranian regime. President Obama reportedly sent a sequence of messages to Iran’s supreme ruler, the Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, in the early months of 2009. The U.S. president held his tongue during the first 10 days of violently repressed protests against the falsified Iranian presidential election of 2009. Obama resisted the tough Kirk-Menendez sanctions against Iran’s central bank until the Senate approved them on a vote of 100-0. When...

    Oklahoma got a dose of peace yesterday, when Alton Nolen, apparently a Muslim convert, beheaded a co-worker at the food company where he worked. He attacked a second woman and would have killed her too, except that the company’s COO has a gun and knows how to use it. This could actually be a case of workplace violence, as the attack occurred immediately after Alton had been fired. (For what, has not been reported.) Nolen had a colorful criminal record, which makes one wonder how he got a job at all when millions are unemployed. Paul has written about the...

    Why prospects for cooperation with the Islamic Republic look dimmer than ever. On Thursday, Iranian President Hassan Rouhani addressed the United Nations in a replete with anti-Western sentiments, anti-Semitism, tiresome tropes regarding the genesis of terror, and promises to continue pursuing his nation’s nuclear program. While acknowledging that terror had become a global issue, Rouhani sought to put the blame everywhere else. “Today’s anti-Westernism is the offspring of yesterday’s colonialism,” Rouhani insisted, proceeding to take a none-too-subtle shot at America, noting that “certain intelligence agencies have put blades in the hands of madmen, who now spare no one.”

Unfortunately, it is yet another farrago of detours, deceptions, half-truths and outright falsehoods. Will Muslim communities ever really reject the ideology of al Qaeda and the Islamic State?

They could easily conceal bombs, and seeing that they have US passports, this raises the frightening prospect that they could be sent back to the US on Suicide Bombing missions. The recruitment of women in the U.S. is done by radicalized members of the community or online, again demonstrating ISIS’ recruitment capability using social media and other technology platforms. Women are the new face of Jihad, which will keep evolving in this war of ideology.

    Ever notice how some things seize Barack Obama emotionally more than others? Notice how Obama listens to some more than others? Obama's speech yesterday was seen by some as a "surrender." “By making such a point about ‘no ground troops,’ the President did two very bad things. First, he reduced the enemy’s uncertainty about our intentions. Second, he gave a global impression that he needed to promise ‘no ground troops’ to the American people because he thinks that otherwise his political position is so weak that he couldn’t get support for an air war. This is a bad mistake: it...

    At least three young Minnesota women are now believed to have traveled to Syria to give aid to the ISIS terror group responsible for the brutal beheadings of American journalists, MailOnline has learned. The trio left some three weeks ago, Omar Jamal, a leader of the Somali community in the state capital, St. Paul, tells MailOnline. They said they intended to become nurses tending to fighters injured in ISIS' violent surge in Syria and Iraq. The news comes as 19-year-old suburban Denver woman Shannon Conley who federal authorities say intended to wage jihad has pleaded guilty to trying to help...

    Blogger and activist Raif Badawi, currently serving a 10-year prison sentence in Saudi Arabia for his writings, wrote this in 2011 about the Ground Zero Mosque initiative, calling it, “a blatant affront to the memory of American Society in particular and humanity in general.” Badawi was a vocal critic of Islamic extremism and the intolerance and hypocrisy of many Islamic leaders. “Would we accept that a Christian or Jew assaults us in our own house and then build a church or synagogue in the same area of the attack???? I doubt it,” he wrote. As human rights groups continue to...

    TOP ISIL Hustler lives in the White House: President Barack Hussein Obama’s ‘no-strategy strategy’ in dealing with the Sen. Dianne Feinstein described “most vicious, well-funded, militant terrorist organization we have ever seen” turns out to be the name he publicly bestowed upon them from the State Floor of the White House last night: ISIL, (Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant)—the name the Islamic State gave to itself—if only to show they already include Israel in their ambitious caliphate. The real name of the caliphate-seeking horror cutting throats and decapitating people and sending their executions viral via YouTube is ISIS...

    <p>“Now let’s make two things clear: ISIL is not Islamic,” Obama said, speaking from the state floor of the White House residence. “No religion condones the killing of innocents, and the vast majority of ISIL’s victims have been Muslim.”</p> <p>He added, “And ISIL is certainly not a state. It was formerly al-Qaida’s affiliate in Iraq, and has taken advantage of sectarian strife and Syria’s civil war to gain territory on both sides of the Iraq-Syrian border. It is recognized by no government, nor the people it subjugates. ISIL is a terrorist organization, pure and simple. And it has no vision other than the slaughter of all who stand in its way.”</p>

    The United Nations (UN) and Palestinian Authority (PA) on Tuesday called for international donors to supply $550 million to the Hamas terror enclave of Gaza, despite the fact that Hamas has already restarted construction on its terror tunnels to attack Israel. The appeal seeks to repair damage caused in the 50-day Operation Protective Edge, which started in July after Hamas launched a rocket war on the Jewish state. "The scope of damage and devastation is unprecedented in the Gaza Strip," said UN Humanitarian Coordinator James Rawley in a statement, reports AFP. "The crisis is far from over." Rawley and PA...

    Amir Meshal has a fascinating history. He's originally from New Jersey, but back in 2007 he was detained and interrogated by the FBI in Kenya after escaping from Somalia. Somehow, his travels brought him to Minnesota, and to a mosque in Bloomington, which kicked him out this summer. Friday prayers bring hundreds to the Al-Farooq Youth and Family Center, which is perhaps the largest mosque in the Twin Cities. But not everyone is welcome -- not after Meshal began attending prayer and hanging out earlier this year. In June, the center called police and had Meshal, 31, removed and ticketed...

    Topeka (KSNT) – “Life is sacred, life is valuable and just murdering and killing innocent people is one of the worst crimes that humans can commit.” says Imam Omar Hazim He says the beheadings and other acts of ISIS are not in the Quran, and are not reflective of Muslims or Islamic teachings. When it comes to backlash within the community, Imam Hazim says, “Personally, in our community in Topeka, we didn’t have any.” The Islamic Center has been active in the community for years.

    This makes for a pathetic LoL of the day: The Institute for Science and International Security is having some acronym woes. The highly regarded nonprofit, non-partisan outfit, which seeks to stop the spread of nukes to other countries and to terrorists, posted a plea Tuesday on its Web site under the heading “Needless Collateral Damage.” It asked that everyone please stop using its acronym, ISIS, “as a shortening for the name of the jihadist terrorist group named, in transliterated Arabic, the Al-Dawla Al-Islamiya fi al-Iraq wa al-Sham.” Sure, that would be really snappy: The “ADAIFAIWAAS,” or maybe just DIFI.

    The Slave State Qatar exploits migrant workers to the point where they are considered modern day slaves. Despite having the highest per capita income in the entire world for its citizens, while construction booms in Doha, workers from countries such as Nepal and India work in awful conditions for less than $1 per hour. There are an estimated 1.4 million migrant workers – non-citizens – in Qatar, from countries including India, Nepal, and Sri Lanka. Under the Kalafa (sponsorship) system, foreign workers cannot change jobs and are often denied the right to leave the country. Workers’ passports are regularly seized...
