    Of all people, it was Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson who first announced and confirmed to the public that there was only one shooter in Dallas (after news reports varied from two shooters to four and repeatedly described triangulated gunfire). Then there’s the “misreporting” (above) on exactly how the suspected shooter died… But here’s a question: why was DHS so involved in the first place? Via Daily Caller: Officials at the Cause of Action Institute, a nonprofit government oversight group, are seeking documents they believe may show the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) is withholding vital information about the Dallas...

    Police officer stabbed in neck at Michigan airport by suspect who yelled 'Allahu Akbar' in possible act of terrorism A police officer was stabbed in the neck on Wednesday at a Michigan airport by a Canadian-born suspect who yelled "Allahu Akbar" in a possible act of terrorism.

A witness told the Flint Journal he was dropping off his daughter at Bishop International Airport when he saw the injured officer. "The cop was on his hands and knees bleeding from his neck," Ken Brown...

    Taimoor Raza was sentenced to death by an anti-terrorism court in Pakistan for publishing “blasphemous” content on social media. Free speech is considered “terrorism” in Muslim countries. Islam is quite literally the opposite of freedom and individual liberty. Sharia law is the polar opposite of Western law; they cannot coexist. This is Islamic jurisprudence in Muslim countries under sharia law. Those in the West promoting, protecting and advancing Islam — this is your future. MULTAN: A minority Shiite Muslim was sentenced to death in Pakistan for sharing blasphemous content about Islam on social media, a government prosecutor said. Judge Shabbir...

    Turkey's parliament is expected to fast-track on Wednesday a draft bill allowing its troops to be deployed to a Turkish military base in Qatar, officials from the ruling AK Party and the nationalist opposition said. The move appears to support the Gulf Arab country as it faces diplomatic and trade isolation from some of the biggest Middle Eastern powers.

    PARIS — French authorities opened a terror investigation Tuesday after police shot and wounded a hammer-wielding man who yelled "This is for Syria!" as he attacked a Parisian police officer outside the historic Notre Dame Cathedral. Some 600 people were inside the famous 12th century church while the drama was happening outside and within minutes one of Paris' most visited tourist destinations was swarming with heavily armed police officers. And as police cornered the alleged attacker, the visitors trapped inside the sanctuary were ordered to put their hands up as investigators searched for any possible accomplices. The suspect is believed...

    At about 10pm British Summer Time on Saturday night, the London Bridge area was the scene of a series of vehicle attacks and stabbings. So my scheduled conversational topic with Judge Jeanine on Fox News was replaced by yet another discussion about terrorism. We'll link to any video that gets posted. I'll be back on Fox with Abby, Pete and Clayton tomorrow morning, Sunday, live at 8am Eastern/5am Pacific. As I write, six members of the public are dead, and three attackers. I'm wary of weighing in as the situation is unfolding, but, though the details are always different, in...

    MARAWI CITY, Philippines (Reuters) - More than 160 civilians walked out of the besieged Philippines city of Marawi just after dawn on Saturday, deceiving Islamist fighters they encountered by hiding the identity of the many Christians among them. The audacious exodus came after text message warnings that a major assault by Philippines aircraft and ground troops was imminent in the center of the southern city, where some 250 militants and more than 2,000 civilians remain trapped. "We saved ourselves," said Norodin Alonto Lucman, a well-known former politician and traditional clan leader who sheltered 71 people, including more than 50 Christians,...

    DID MI5 DROP THE BALL? The storied and highly respected intelligence agency of the United Kingdom seems to have overlooked a few obvious clues that could have prevented the recent carnage in Manchester. When a popular entertainer’s concert ends, upwards of 20,000 people are going to leave the venue in a crush of humanity, albeit more or less orderly. The predatory fiend, Salman Ramadan Abedi, laid in wait in the foyer of the stadium, knowing that this throng would necessarily have to pass in close proximity to him. These folks would slowly move to train stations, bus terminals, etc., where...

    New York City Council Speaker Melissa Mark-Viverito (D-East Harlem) said "ultra right-wing forces" in Puerto Rico are trying to undermine this year's Puerto Rican Day Parade. The city's parade made national headlines with its decision to designate Oscar Lopez Rivera, a convicted terrorist, as its "National Freedom Hero." Lopez Rivera led the FALN, a left-wing liberation movement in Puerto Rico, which bombed several sites across the United States - including NYPD barracks. "A lot of the campaign putting pressure on the sponsors to withdraw... is being manipulated and organized and orchestrated from an ultra-right wing element on the island [of...

    WASHINGTON (Army News Service) -- A novel technology called "Tactical Augmented Reality," or TAR, is now helping Soldiers precisely locate their positions, as well as the locations of friends and foes, said Richard Nabors. It even enables them to see in the dark, all with a heads-up display device that looks like night-vision goggles, or NGV, he added. So in essence, TAR replaces NVG, GPS, plus it does much more. Nabors, an associate for strategic planning at U.S. Army Research, Development and Engineering Command's Communications-Electronics Research, Development and Engineering Center, or CERDEC, spoke about TAR at the Pentagon's Lab Day,...

    WASHINGTON - A federal district court judge has overturned the sentence of Lee Boyd Malvo, one of the two people convicted in D.C.-area Beltway sniper attacks nearly 15 years ago, according to a ruling released Friday. Malvo was sentenced to life in prison without parole for the sniper-style attacks committed around the region in October 2002 along with John Allen Muhammad. Ten people were killed and three others were shot during a three-week period. Malvo appealed to the court saying he should not have been sentenced to life without parole because he was 17 years old at the time of...

    Cut The Crap -- Islamic Terrorism There is this ugly and pervasive "political" view that Islamic Terrorism is some "new thing." It usually comes with some line of crap about how we've "created" these monsters by invading their nations and displacing "their" people, and that "we" (the western world generally) are responsible. This is a bald lie. Islamic terrorism dates back centuries. It was a problem in the form of piracy and slavery in the early days of our Republic -- long before we had a military that could invade anything. The "big lie" is proved again in the present...

    The lawyers for the Michigan FGM doctors charged with performing the barbaric procedures on young Muslim girls are saying these Muslim doctors are not guilty and are being persecuted because of their religion. Under Islamic law (sharia), they are not guilty. Under Western law, they are monsters. One of the girls told FBI investigators that she screamed out in pain during the procedure, while another young girl said she couldn’t walk for a few days after having her clitoris mutilated. The doctors claimed they didn’t cut the clitorises, but nicked them instead. It’s a distinction without difference. Perhaps they are...

Under high alert, police stopped a Moroccan man in front of the hall and asked him for his ID, said a spokesman for police in the northeastern region of Catalonia where Barcelona is located.

    Egypt referred 48 suspected Islamic State (ISIS) terrorists believed to have been involved in several fatal church bombings to the country’s military judiciary, Egypt’s chief prosecutor said Sunday. Egypt declared a state of emergency after ISIS militants bombed two churches in Alexandria and Tanta on Palm Sunday, killing nearly 50 people, The New York Times reports. The April attacks followed one from Cairo in December that ended the lives of over 25 members of Egypt’s Coptic Christian minority. ISIS claimed responsibility for the attacks. Public prosecutor Nabil Sadek revealed Sunday that some of the suspects being held for alleged involvement in the recent...

    President Trump's senior adviser and son-in-law Jared Kushner personally called the CEO of Lockheed Martin during a meeting with a Saudi delegation earlier this month to ask her to cut the price of a missile defense system, The New York Times reported Thursday. The call was part of Kushner's effort to secure a roughly $110 billion arms sale to Saudi Arabia before Trump's scheduled trip to the kingdom on Friday.  During the meeting with the delegation, Kushner determined that cost could prohibit the Saudis from purchasing a THAAD missile defense system, which is designed to shoot down intermediate-range ballistic missiles.

The king’s current visit is the apex of that methodical campaign, and “has the potential to accelerate the expansion of Saudi Arabia’s cultural resources in Indonesia,” .. Since 1980, Saudi Arabia has devoted millions of dollars to exporting its strict brand of Islam, Salafism, to historically tolerant and diverse Indonesia. It has built more than 150 mosques (albeit in a country that has about 800,000), a huge free university in Jakarta, and several Arabic language institutes; supplied more than 100 boarding...

    The current military culture values enemy lives above those of U.S. troops ANALYSIS/OPINION: Donald Trump and James Mattis came to office vowing to “win” America’s wars again. But unless they change our politically correct military culture, it is certain America won’t. With Thursday night’s cruise missile strikes in Syria, the United States is facing down the barrel of another war in the Middle East. But as President Trump and congressional leadership weigh the risks on an expanded, messy conflict, possibly including U.S. ground forces, they also ought to examine whether a military plagued by overlawyering has what it takes to...
