    Domestic terrorist group Antifa doesn’t like independent journalist Brandon Brown. Even with other journalists and Portland police watching, they attacked Brown for the second time in two months, this time hitting him in the face with “bear spray,” a form of mace intended to hurt and blind attacking bears. Video recorded by antifa writer Shane Burley shows the mob harassing, assaulting & pepper spraying local citizen journalist Brandon Brown. Brown was attacked & robbed by antifa militants for recording them in Olympia, Wash. in December.— Andy Ngo (@MrAndyNgo) February 8, 2020

    “Not only is the terror threat diverse, it’s unrelenting," said FBI chief Chris Wray In a hearing before the House Judiciary Committee on Wednesday, FBI Director Christopher Wray outlined several concrete steps the agency had taken to combat violent far-right extremists, explaining that the “national threat priority” designation puts those groups or individuals on the same footing as ISIS” in terms of the resources the FBI will devote to it. “We’re particularly focused on domestic terrorism, especially racially or ethnically motivated violent extremists,” said Wray. “Not only is the terror threat diverse, it’s unrelenting...

    New Jersey shooters David Anderson and Francine Graham had an improvised explosive device inside their U-Haul van that had the reach of five football fields, a weapon that could have been part of larger wave of attacks targeting the Jewish community and law enforcement, officials said Monday. "If it exploded in the right place it could have certainly injured or killed people up to five football fields away," said FBI Newark Special Agent in Charge Gregory Ehrie. Ehrie and others mentioned the homemade bomb along with new details about the investigation into both the shooters and the incidents that led...

    A Colorado mother has been accused of plotting to kidnap her child, who had been removed from her custody, in a raid with the help of far-right QAnon conspiracy theorists. Cynthia Abcug, 50, was charged last month with conspiracy to commit second-degree kidnapping, according to the Parker Police Department in Douglas County. According to an arrest affidavit, Abcug's daughter, who was still in her custody, told police and child services caseworkers in September that her mother had "gotten into some conspiracy theories and she was 'spiraling down it'" since her sibling was removed from the home. She also said her...

    ‘They’re terrorists’: Philadelphia restaurant owner blames antifa for vandalism Andy Ngo, 5 hours ago A 75-year-old restaurant owner in Philadelphia had nearly all the windows of his business destroyed early on New Year’s Day in an attack he blames on antifa. “They’re terrorists. They just knocked out $20,000 worth of glass,” says restaurant owner Jack Gillespie. He says the vandalism this week is the culmination of weeks of targeted harassment by left-wing activists and antifa groups angry that members of two right-wing organizations were allowed to patronize the Millcreek Tavern.

    The House Republican Caucus has expelled Matt Shea after an investigation revealed that he "participated in an act of domestic terrorism against the United States." Shea represents Washington’s 4th District, which encapsulates the area surrounding Spokane Valley. He has since taken to social media to call the investigation a "sham." On Facebook he wrote: "Like we are seeing with our President this is a sham investigation meant to silence those of us who stand up against attempts to disarm and destroy our great country. I will not back down, I will not give in, I will not resign. Stand strong...

    Hasan has remained on death row for seven years and counting. Manning said he hopes "justice gets served" but realizes Hasan may never be executed. ... When it came to Hasan, Manning said, there was a double standard. Hasan wrote emails to radical American cleric Anwar al-Awlaki seeking advice on reconciling his Muslim faith with serving in the Army. This fact was known to the FBI. “You could lose your security clearance in the Army for having bad credit and be kicked out of the Army. But you can't lose your security clearance for talking to a member of Al...

    FULL TITLE: The First Illegal Alien To Commit A North American Terrorist Attack Is On Trial, But Don’t Expect The Media To Cover It Trump, after all the media ridicule, was correct in saying that potential terrorists have illegally crossed the United States' southern border. Abdulahi Hasan Sharif of Somalia did. And it could happen again. Many who have professionally worried, as did former Department of Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson, that violent jihadists might illegally cross the United States’ southern border are often sanctimoniously challenged with this: “Name a single U.S. border-crossing immigrant asylum-seeker who ever committed a terrorist...

Prosecutors in Miami said Abdul-Majeed Marouf Ahmed Alani admitted to sabotaging the airplane July 17 ahead of a scheduled flight from Miami to Nassau, Bahamas, but said it was out of frustration over stalled union contract talks.

    An American Airlines mechanic was arrested Thursday on a sabotage charge accusing him of disabling a navigation system on a flight with 150 people aboard before it was scheduled to take off from Miami International Airport earlier this summer. The reason, according to a criminal complaint affidavit filed in Miami federal court: Abdul-Majeed Marouf Ahmed Alani, a veteran employee, was upset over stalled union contract negotiations. None of the passengers and crew on the flight to Nassau were injured because the tampering with the so-called air data module caused an error alert as the pilots powered up the plane’s engines...

    The San Francisco Board of Supervisors has passed a resolution declaring the National Rifle Association a "domestic terrorist organization" and urged the federal government to do the same - the latest escalation in the heated rhetoric from Democrats regarding the NRA in the wake of several deadly mass shootings. The resolution, which passed Tuesday and says the U.S. is "plagued by an epidemic of gun violence," accuses the NRA of using "its considerable wealth and organization strength to promote gun ownership and incite gun owners to acts of violence." ------ The document resolves to assess the relationships that those who...

    Law enforcement arrested 36 individuals, mostly believed to be ANTIFA terrorists, at yesterday’s straight pride parade in Boston, MA, as four police were injured as the thugs attempted to stop the parade from taking place. Big League Politics reported that ANTIFA was already fundraising to cover bail fees for their organization’s terrorists beforehand, as their violent display was clearly premeditated in an attempt to shut down the lawful orderly protest that drew approximately 200 participants.

    Two terror fangirls from Queens who went gaga for al Qaeda and ISIS — including one who carried around Osama bin Laden’s photo — copped to bomb-building charges Friday that could land them in prison for up to 20 years. Noelle Velentzas, 31, and Asia Siddiqui, 35, could wind up in prison for 20 years after pleading guilty in Brooklyn federal court to attempting to build a weapon of mass destruction. Between 2013 and 2015, the pair plotted to set off explosives in New York. They researched how to make car bombs and visited Home Depot in Queens to browse...

    A couple of men on the far right held an “End Domestic Terrorism” rally in Portland, Oregon, Saturday. As expected, the violent left-wing group antifa showed up to counter-protest. By the time the right-leaning attendees started to leave, police had arrested at least 13 people. One protester arrested was bleeding from the head. The arrests during these types of rallies have disproportionately been of those on the right, even though they’ve primarily been in defensive mode and don’t threaten the police like antifa does. One police officer was injured and taken to the hospital. Antifa hurled ethnic slurs at the...
