    The gun used during the attempted terror attack on the “Draw Muhammad” event in Texas may have been bought from the Arizona store linked to Fast and Furious. Los Angeles Times broke the news yesterday which also included the nugget that Nadir Soofi’s purchase was known by the federal government (emphasis mine). Soofi’s attempt to buy a gun caught the attention of authorities, who slapped a seven-day hold on the transaction, according to his Feb. 24, 2010, firearms transaction record, which was reviewed by the Los Angeles Times. Then, for reasons that remain unclear, the hold was lifted after...

  • Homeland Security Chief: We wont call Chattanooga Islamic terrorism out of respect for Muslims

    Why wont the Obama administration call Fort Hood Islamic Terrorism? Why arent they calling Chattanooga Islamic Terrorism?

He explained that though it was a Muslim terrorist who shot to death four unarmed Marines in Tennessee two weeks ago, the government will call the attack, and other similar ones, violent extremism and not Islamic terrorism out of respect for the Muslim community.

    Jeremiah ODonovan Rossa creates terrorism as we understand it in the 20th century, the historian Dr. Shane Kenna, author of a book called Jeremiah ODonovan Rossa: Unrepentant Fenian, says. He sees himself as the progenitor of terrorism. Hes the man who develops the strategy, and he said that future terrorist groups should pay him a royalty for it. Calling ODonovan Rossa a terrorist shouldnt be particularly controversialalthough Kenna winces when he does so. ODonovan Rossa embraced the word. He ran a dynamite school in the United States and boasted of bombing campaigns in his self-published newspaper. [] In death, ODonovan...

U.N. spokesman Stephane Dujarric said Ban strongly condemns Friday's "murder" of 18-month-old Ali Dawabsheh and calls for the perpetrators to be brought to justice.

Which is why we have seen this spike in jihad terror attacks (Chattanooga, Boston, Garland ..). The idea that you cannot profile for jihad is suicidal. It is submission to Islamic supremacism.

Outlining the White House proposal that will soon be sent to Congress, Lisa Monaco, one of Obama's top national-security aides, told the Aspen Security Conference on Saturday that the US would step up the transfers of 52 detainees cleared for resettlement in other countries.

    As a US senator and a candidate for president a decade ago, John Kerry couldn't bring himself to worry overmuch about Islamic terrorism. Today, as a secretary of state trying to sell a nuclear accord that would lift economic sanctions from the world's leading state sponsor of Islamic terrorism, he still can't. During his run for the White House in 2004, Kerry insisted that the danger from global jihadists should be viewed as primarily an "intelligence gathering, law enforcement, public diplomacy effort," not a military conflict. "We have to get back to the place we were," he told an interviewer...

The CNN report on the arrest of two former detainees in Belgium has two more interesting angles to it, however: Two former detainees at the Guantanamo Bay prison in Cuba were arrested by Belgian police in a counterterrorism operation targeting a recruiting network for al Qaeda in Syria. They were arrested Wednesday night along with three others as they were about to break into a house to raise funds in the...

    America was not the only country last week where Islamic terrorists targeted military personnel for death. While five American servicemen in Chattanooga tragically lost their lives to the worldwide jihad, France was fortunately able to break up a plot to attack a minor military installation and behead the commander before it could be carried out. Three jihadists, all residents of France, were arrested. One, Ishamel K., 17, was from the banlieue (ghetto) of Valenciennes. The other two were Djebril A., 23, and Antoine F., 19, a convert to Islam. A fourth suspect, a 16-year old, was arrested and released. No...

The FBI forgot about him until his son, Mohammod Youssef Abdulazeez, went on a Jihadist killing spree in Chattanooga. Just like the Tsarnaev terrorists, the media is digging into the background of this dysfunctional Muslim family. We have learned that Youssef Abdulazeez liked to beat and rape his wife.

As part of the nuclear deal reached and announced by President Obama last week, Iran will have access to $150 billion in funds that were formerly frozen and unavailable to the regime. Critics of the plan have warned that a new influx of cash with little stipulation will allow Iran to use that money to further fund terrorism through Hezbollah and Hamas in the region and around the world.

All commands are initially instructed to disseminate money valuable bags, sandbags (preferably empty), or paper bags to all personnel to ensure immediate compliance. Col....

A string of deadly attacks carried out by followers of the ultra-hardline militant group based in Iraq and Syria has fueled concerns about a growing threat of militancy in the world's top oil exporter.

Security services think the area in Bosnia is used for ISIS training camps and could be a base for devastating terror attacks on the West. Crucially, the location gives IS a key strategic position due to its proximity to the Mediterranean which is used by extremists from Syria, Iraq and North Africa. At least 12 ISIS fighters trained in the village of Osve have left for Syria in recent months and five are...

    As it turns out, I was on vacation and out of reach of cable news for the entire week, including during the horrific shooting in Chattanooga. (This no doubt came as a relief to some of our readers, though rumors of my early acceptance to the Mars Relocation Program were exaggerated.) I was still picking up details and some of the mainstream media coverage of the tragedy via social media, though, and I rather wish I hadnt even had access to that. Upon arriving home and switching on CNN I was treated to Jane Harman talking to Wolf Blitzer and...

    With so much riding on the 2016 Presidential Election, even the best candidate can get overwhelmed by the issues. Although many issues will be used to distract voters and divert attention, the four issues below are the most crucial we face as a sovereign nation and as people.

    Oklahoma Gov. Mary Fallin (R) issued an executive order late Friday authorizing certain full-time military personnel in her state to be armed following a deadly shooting the previous day in Tennessee. Four unarmed Marines were killed in what appears to be a domestic terrorist attack, Fallin said in a statement accompanying her executive order. It is painful enough when we lose members of our armed forces when they are sent in harms way, but it is unfathomable that they should be vulnerable for attack in our own communities," she said. Fallin's order applies to those on military installations in Oklahoma,...
