  • Citing increased terror activities, US asks citizens to defer all non-essential travel to Pakistan

    Daily News & Analysis ^ | Saturday, August 29, 2015 | PTI
    Washington - The United States on Friday asked its citizens to defer their all non-essential travel to Pakistan, citing increased terror activities in the country. "The Department of State warns US citizens against all non-essential travel to Pakistan," a travel advisory said. However, the US Embassy in Islamabad and the US Consulate General in Karachi continue to provide consular services for all its citizens in Pakistan. The Consulate General in Peshawar no longer offers consular services, and consular services at the Consulate General in Lahore remain temporarily suspended. "The presence of several foreign and indigenous terrorist groups continues to pose a danger to...

    Needless to add, the “DNR” and “LNR” militaries would not last twenty-four hours without constant command and logistical support from Putin’s military. They are an extension of Russian Ground Forces and should be treated as such by the West. It’s time to end, once and for all, any fiction about “rebels” — these are Russian-controlled forces, led by Russian officers, supplied with Russian guns and ammunition, that are waging war inside Ukraine.

    UPI ^ | Aug. 27, 2015 at 2:01 PM | Andrew V. Pestano
    SAN SALVADOR, El Salvador, Aug. 27 (UPI) -- The Constitutional Chamber of the Supreme Court of El Salvador has ruled that criminal gangs within the country will be considered terrorist groups, including the MS-13 gang. El Salvador's most notorious gangs, Mara Salvatrucha, also known as MS-13, and Barrio 18, as well as any other criminal organizations that threaten or frighten the country's people are terrorists because of their "systematic attacks to life, security and personal integrity of the population," according to El Salvador's Constitutional Chamber. The chamber upheld and expanded El Salvador's 2006 Special Law Against Terrorist Acts on Monday...

    At one point in Laura Hillenbrand’s World War II book Unbroken, the top turret gunner of a B-24 bomber over the Pacific stays doggedly at his post and keeps on firing, trying to ward off an attacking Japanese fighter plane. Eventually he succeeds. Staying focused on saving the lives of one’s comrades under such terrifying conditions is admirable enough. Stanley Pillsbury did it after one of his feet had been practically blown off by a cannon shell from the enemy aircraft. When they got his boot off after the engagement, his foot was shredded. His big toe stayed inside the...

It’s what they do, and no one was surprised that they did it - tinged as always with warnings like “we can’t wait any longer,” which imply, I guess, that everyone knows the left’s gun control agenda would stop killings like this, and we’re all just dragging our feet because the approval of the NRA is more important than the lives of folks like Alison Parker and Adam Ward. That’s the implication, and it’s hardly new. They dropped...

    Can a Mulsim fanatic who wanted to join ISIS be "de-radicalized" so that he's no longer a threat to society? A Minnesota judge thinks so. He ordered Abdullahi Yusuf, who pleaded guilty to giving material support to terrorism, to leave jail and report to a halfway house where a counselor would presumably deprogram him. Oh - the half way house has absolutely no experience in "deradicalizing" Muslim terrorists.

    With the nuclear deal with Iran soon to be etched in stone, the country is projected to receive anywhere from $100-150 billion in unfrozen assets–American Action Forum says $140 billion– as part of sanctions relief in return for limiting its nuclear weapons program. Yes, a known state-sponsor of terrorism is receiving billions that won’t be spent on terrorist activities. Remember, Secretary of State John Kerry forcefully said, “They’re not allowed to do that,” whereas National Security Adviser Susan Rice admitted that some of that money could fund such nefarious operations. Given the numbers crunched by American Action Forum, this...

The motive of a Muslim who leaves a backpack with a bomb in it at a Hindu shrine that is frequented by Buddhists in a country that has been battling jihad violence for years now is unclear only to those who are willfully ignorant.

In the case of the Clintons, Bill and Hillary, they are forgiving to a fault. Because the 1990s were relatively peaceful and prosperous, the American people chose to forgive the sins of the offensive (and offending) Clintons. This allowed them to repair their reputations, and later enrich themselves through a global money laundering...

    JERUSALEM (AP) -- Israel intensified its crackdown on Jewish extremists Sunday, imprisoning two high-profile ultranationalist Israelis for six months without charge and arresting additional suspects in West Bank settlement outposts, security authorities said. The crackdown comes after a deadly July 31 firebomb attack on a Palestinian home in the West Bank that killed an 18-month-old boy and his father and severely wounded his mother and brother. Authorities called the arson attack an act of "Jewish terrorism," and Israel's Security Cabinet approved the use of harsh measures to combat the trend, including administrative detention, which allows suspects to be held for...

    Why the next seven weeks? Because fiscal year 2015 ends on September 30th and the settlers in the US State Department and in their contracting agencies want to hit the Obama target of 70,000 for the year and they have (as of July 31), 18,470 more to go! Actually that 70,000 figure that Obama announced in his Presidential Determination Letter to Congress last September is meant to be a ceiling, not a goal that they necessarily have to hit. However, since the contractors are paid by the head and they have salaries and office overhead to pay, they always try...

    (CNSNews.com) – During a “voters first presidential forum” in New Hampshire on Monday, GOP presidential candidate Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal criticized President Barack Obama’s deal with Iran, saying he “declared war on trans fats and a ceasefire with the largest state-sanctioned sponsor of terrorism.” “This is a bad deal. He’s declared war on trans fats and a ceasefire with the largest state-sanctioned sponsor of terrorism,” said Jindal regarding the nuclear deal with Iran. As CNSNews.com previously reported, the Food and Drug Administration ruled in June that trans fat is not “generally recognized as safe” for use in food and gave...

    The FBI is now referring some potential terror suspects to counseling in a new strategy to defeat homegrown Islamic State supporters. Rather than lock up everyone in the U.S. suspected of potential terrorist activity, the FBI will refer up to 10 percent of the thousands of people under investigation to counseling, reported The Wall Street Journal. Proponents of the plan told TheWSJ it will ease the FBI’s investigative burden, and provide a possible “off ramp” from radicalization for some of the thousands of people in the U.S. interested in ISIS, especially minors.

    Here is the exchange that those headlines refer to: KARL: Would President Trump authorize waterboarding and other enhanced interrogation techniques, even torture? TRUMP: I would be inclined to be very strong. When people are chopping off other people’s heads and then we’re worried about waterboarding and we can’t, because I have no doubt that that works. I have absolutely no doubt. KARL: You’d bring back waterboarding? TRUMP: …you mention waterboarding, which was such a big subject. I haven’t heard that term in a year now, because when you see the other side chopping off heads, waterboarding doesn’t sound very severe....
