    First of all, did you even hear about the explosive device planted and detonated outside the Alabama Attorney General's office back in February? The 'news' media offered some perfunctory coverage at the time, but consider the circumstances and context: Just a few days prior, the state's Supreme Court had issued a highly controversial ruling involving frozen embryos, with possible implications for in vitro fertilization. The subsequent uproar garnered national attention, as many journalists were eager to jump all over a story they perceived as politically beneficial to both their preferred political party, and to their unlimited abortion agenda. The GOP-controlled...

    An Irondale man was taken into custody Wednesday on a federal indictment accusing him of detonating an explosive device outside the Alabama Attorney General’s Office. Kyle Benjamin Douglas Calvert, 26, is charged with malicious use of an explosive and possession of an unregistered destructive device. Charging documents against him say he also placed stickers on state buildings at the same time of the bombing depicting different graphics advocating for various political ideologies. Some included the phrase “Support your local antifa.” Antifa, short for Anti-Fascist, does not describe a particular group, but rather describes individuals who adhere to what they consider...

    Russian forces have deployed a powerful ODAB-1500 bomb in Ukraine for the first time, striking the town of Velyka Pysarivka in Sumy Oblast, Russian Bild reported on Telegram on March 30. Following the ODAB-1500 strike, a smoke cloud billowed to a height of 1 kilometer, reported Bild military analyst Julian Röpcke. The ODAB, or volumetric detonating aviation bomb, is a relic from the Soviet era. About 10 meters before impact, this bomb releases a combustible liquid in aerosol form, igniting upon contact, resulting in a volumetric explosion. These bombs primarily target enemy soldiers and lightly armored vehicles, delivering devastating blast...

    Three years after the Jan. 6 U.S. Capitol riot, the FBI is still seeking the suspect who planted a pipe bomb near the headquarters of the Republican National Committee and the Democratic National Committee on the eve of the attack. The pipe bombs, which had an hour-long kitchen timer as a detonator, were viable, but didn’t detonate and no one was hurt, the FBI said. "Over the past three years, a dedicated team of FBI agents, analysts, data scientists, and law enforcement partners has worked thousands of hours conducting interviews, reviewing physical and digital evidence, and assessing tips from the...

    JERUSALEM – Top Iran experts in the U.S. and in Israel are warning President Biden that his administration’s strategy of de-escalation and containment targeting the world’s worst state-sponsor of terrorism – the Islamic Republic of Iran – has failed and America needs to reestablish deterrence against Tehran as fears of the regime obtaining a nuclear device grow. Alarming reports about Iran moving at an astonishingly fast pace to possess a nuclear weapon have emerged since last month. In December, Reuters reported that a confidential IAEA report released to member states said it had "increased its production of highly enriched uranium,...

Breitbart News sources indicate that 20 Jewish institutions in Los Angeles received bomb threats on Tuesday, causing those Jewish schools that had been scheduled to open on January 2 to remain closed.

    A US citizen from New Jersey is accused of attempting to join the al Shabaab terrorist group and tweeting threats to bomb America in support of Hamas after its October 7 attack on Israel. Karrem Nasr, 23, was arrested December 14 after flying to Nairobi, Kenya, where prosecutors say he was planning to meet with al Shabaab members before traveling to train in Somalia, where the terror group is based. Prosecutors say Nasr, using the X moniker 'Egyptian Muslim', last month posted that 'Jihad on your home turf' was 'coming soon to a US location near you,' posting airplane, bomb,...

Those symbols can be seen for about 10 miles along the H-1 heading into town. “We think of...

    Representative Pramila Jayapal (D-WA) said Sunday on CNN’s “State of the Union” that the United States was allowing Israel to “indiscriminately bomb hospitals.” Jayapal said, “Fifteen thousand Palestinians to date to have been killed. Three-quarters of whom are women and children, and say that that is going to help us in the long-term. Morally, Dana, morally, but also, strategically, for Israel, the only way through this is to create a situation where there is a political solution that involves a Palestinian state and an Israeli state.”

    Several U.N. Security Council resolutions adopted between 2006 and 2010 required Iran to cooperate fully with the International Atomic Energy Agency’s (IAEA’s) investigation of its nuclear activities, suspend its uranium enrichment program, suspend its construction of a heavy-water reactor and related projects, and ratify the Additional Protocol to its IAEA safeguards agreement.

However, Tehran has implemented various restrictions on, and provided the IAEA with additional information about, the government’s nuclear program pursuant to the July 2015 Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA), On the JCPOA’s Implementation Day, which took place...

"This is a momentous day for our company," said Disney CEO Bob Iger. "We now have a useful channel to funnel our bomb-making efforts.

    The vehicle that exploded as it was entering the U.S. from Canada on a checkpoint in Niagara Falls “serves as a wake-up call,” presidential candidate Vivek Ramaswamy said, asserting that the country must “finally address the crisis happening on our Northern border.” “We dodged a potential catastrophe today. I hope it serves as the wake-up call America needs to finally address the crisis happening on our Northern border, which has gone unreported by the media and unaddressed by our political leaders,” Ramaswamy said, listing a series of events that have occurred on the northern border in the last four months,...

    The Marvels is anything but marvelous so far at the box office. Based on Friday earnings of $21.5 million, the Marvel Studios and Disney superhero tentpole is headed for a domestic opening of $47 million to $52 million to rank as the worst start in the history of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. The Marvels marks a new low for Kevin Feige‘s Marvel Studios, which for years was unrivaled in its success, and bolsters the theory that superhero fatigue is a real thing as fanboys grow weary of a glut of titles and are far less forgiving. Until now, rival DC...
  • Tennessee man's DIY 'rubber bumper' sparks false bomb threat alarm, sending schools into lockdown and shutting down businesses

    10/25/2023 9:36:13 AM PDT · by algore · 35 replies
    A Tennessee car owner's DIY 'rubber bumper' caused a mass false bomb alert and led to local businesses closing and sending nearby schools into lockdown for hours. The unidentified Murfreesboro, TN owner had duct-taped two white cloths to the passenger side of the car with wires running out around the front door handle. The 'rubber bumper' was being held with suction cups and was meant to prevent dents. Whether this prevented dents to the car or not, it surely led to a bomb scare that forced police to evacuate the area around a local First Watch restaurant for two hours....

    WASHINGTON — President Joe Biden ominously called China a “ticking time bomb,” warning “bad folks” can “do bad things,” according to a pool report of the Thursday fundraiser. The full context of Biden’s menacing forecast was not clear, though the pool report said he noted China’s high unemployment and aging population. “When bad folks have problems, they do bad things,” Biden said at the Park City, Utah, home of Mark Gilbert, a former US ambassador to New Zealand and Samoa. The 80-year-old president also said he wanted to have a “rational relationship with China,” declaring “I don’t want to hurt...
