    A Muslim basketball player at Garden City Community College in Kansas has been kicked off the team but now the left is saying his civil rights were violated. Samir claims he was dismissed by the team after he made a stance on the National Anthem. A fan decided he had seen enough of that anthem stance, a confrontation followed. 19-year-old Rasool Samir refused to show respect for the National Anthem during a game. His team left the court, a big enough show of disrespect. Samir was not willing to do even that. The Muslim teen kept shooting baskets while the...

    1.It Was Not a “Lone Wolf” Attack In addition to a potential accomplice that has since been arrested, an image of an ISIS flag on a cellphone near the location of the terrorist attack in NY surfaced two months ago. According to the police complaint against Sayfullo Habibullaevic Saipov, the 29-year-old began planning the attack close to a year ago. The complaint asserts that Saipov watched and was inspired by ISIS videos. One of the two cellphones that were found in the truck had close to 90 violent ISIS propaganda videos on it, some with information on how to make...

    After the tragic terrorist attack yesterday in NYC (where I am now), leaders were quick to say it was an act of terror and the perpetrator was a coward. Both terms are persuasion mistakes. I’ll tell you why. Terror is what the bad guys want. If we label the outcome as terror, we give them their win, and we remind the public to stay scared. Calling a terrorist a coward might sound like a powerful insult, but it isn’t persuasive. No terrorist views sacrificing his life for his cause as cowardly. The word bounces right off. To make an impact,...

    The New York Times claimed there was “no single reason” for Sayfullo Saipov’s decision to drive a truck into more than 20 people in New York City Tuesday. TheNYT attributed his attack more to a lack of opportunity and financial trouble in a Wednesday profile of the terrorist, even though Saipov yelled “Allahu Akbar” while being apprehended by police and had a note pledging allegiance to the Islamic State.

    The wife of the Uzbeki national accused of murdering eight people in Manhattan denied any knowledge of her husband’s carefully planned rampage, according to a report. A person who spoke to Sayfullo Saipov’s 24-year-old wife, Nozima Odilova, on Tuesday evening said she seemed “shocked and horrified and scared and sad” after being grilled by the FBI, a source told the Washington Post. At the time, the feds were at her Paterson, NJ, house, where they encouraged her to cooperate to make sure no one else was harmed. Meanwhile, neighbor Carlos Batista recounted that Saipov had occasionally driven a Home Depot...

    The radical extremist who brutally ended the lives of eight people Tuesday afternoon reportedly expressed pride in his handiwork during discussions with federal authorities. Sayfullo Habibullaevic Saipov, a 29-year-old green card holder and diversity lottery visa winner from Uzbekistan, launched a violent attack on dozens of innocent people Tuesday. Inspired by Islamic State propaganda, the young man slammed a vehicle into bicyclists and pedestrians. Authorities neutralized the attacker and took him into custody. The suspect’s connection to ISIS was derived from a note in Arabic found at the scene that indicated allegiance to the terrorist organization, as well as the...

    “(A)fter he came to the United States is when he started to become informed about ISIS and radical Islamic tactics,” Cuomo said on CNN. “Again, ISIS has gotten it down to a simple formula that they can put on the internet and it doesn't take a rocket scientist to rent a car, rent a truck. But they are cowards and they are depraved.”

    The driver who killed eight people in the Manhattan terror attack was interviewed by feds in 2015 – but officials didn’t have enough information on him to open a case, according to a new report. Authorities with the Department of Homeland Security Investigations Unit had probed Sayfullo Saipov about his possible ties to suspect terrorists, ABC News reported Wednesday. Saipov’s name and address was listed as a “point of contact” for two men whose names were on the Counterterrorism and Criminal Exploitation Unit’s list after they arrived in the US from “threat countries,

    The suspect in Tuesday's terrorist attack in lower Manhattan bragged to police about the deadly attack from his hospital bed, saying he would have continued the attack had he not crashed into a school bus.   Sayfullo Habibullaevic Saipov, 29, told police he is pleased with his actions and is unapologetic for the attack, which killed 8 people and injured at least 11. Sources tell CBS News he made "no bones" about what he did. Investigators also discovered 10 to 15 pieces of paper with writing in Arabic praising the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria. One note said "ISIS...

Cops surrounded a block in Paterson, the hometown of Sayfullo Saipov, 29, an Uzbek immigrant who was shot by a cop when he jumped out of the truck brandishing fake but realistic-looking pistols and shouting “Allahu Akbar!” Authorities in Passaic County also cordoned off an area that includes a mosque, some storefronts and several other residences, as well as a parking lot at...
