    On the 22nd anniversary of the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks, Gov. Ron DeSantis (R-FL) said the threat of foreign terrorism still exists on U.S. soil due to a lack of security on the southern border. Putting a spotlight on current problems surrounding illegal immigration, the Republican presidential candidate told the Washington Examiner that he believes the border crisis "has made us more vulnerable to a terrorist attack." "I think that there is a good bet that somebody that's come across that [southern] border will commit an act of terrorism," he said. He noted that people from countries across the...

    President Joe Biden’s border agency has sent a small number of rescued Cuban migrants into a holding center at a U.S. base in Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, according to a U.S. government broadcast network. “More than 20 Cuban citizens are currently in the Migrant Operations Center, at the Guantánamo Naval Base (MOC), waiting for a third country to grant them refuge,” Radio Television Marti reported.

    Thirty-four US political prisoners of the Biden regime penned a very sad letter this week requesting a transfer to Guantanamo Bay, Cuba facility where they would receive meals, sunlight, freedom of religion, exercise, entertainment, and be treated like human beings. These thirty-four January 6 political prisoners have been held for over a year and a half without trial for misdemeanors and trumped-up felony charges. This group of men have been isolated, beaten viciously, abused, threatened, tormented, and belittled by the guards based on their political and religious beliefs. The men and women have been without medical assistance, medications, exercise, and...

    NAVAL STATION GUANTANAMO BAY, Cuba -- This is not your typical deployment location in the war on terror. Troops here get to scuba dive in their off time and have an assortment of restaurants and bars to unwind in at the end of long days spent guarding enemy combatants. The troops who manage the detention facility here belong to Joint Task Force Guantanamo. They're deployed for varying tour lengths from all services, both active and reserve components. "They come here on deployment, and they're actually coming to a place that is not as bad as (many) deployments," said Navy Capt....

Ron Dellums was a hired lobbyist for Natalia Veselnitskaya, the Russian lawyer who met with Donald Trump Jr. June 9, 2016, the Daily Caller News Foundation Investigative Group has learned.

    President Donald Trump said Wednesday that he would consider sending Sayfullo Saipov, the Uzbek national who plowed a rented truck through a bike lane full of cyclists and pedestrians on Tuesday, to the U.S. military prison at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba. 'I would certainly consider that, yes. I would certainly consider that. Send him to Gitmo,' Trump said. The president also declared that he is already moving to terminate the State Department's diversity-oriented visa lottery program, which granted Saipov entry into the United States in 2010. 'I am today starting the process of terminating the diversity lottery program. I'm going to...

    Most of the United States’ special envoys will be abolished and their responsibilities reassigned as part of the State Department overhaul, Secretary of State Rex Tillerson told Congress on Monday, including envoys for climate change and the Iran deal. Special envoys for Afghanistan-Pakistan, disability rights and closing the Guantanamo Bay detention center will be eliminated under the plan. But President Donald Trump’s administration plans to keep envoys for religious freedom, fighting anti-Semitism and LGBT rights, despite speculation from critics that it would seek to downgrade those priorities. Lawmakers of both parties, think tanks and even the diplomats’ association have long...

    In a striking advance that helps open the door to organ transplants from animals, researchers have created gene-edited piglets cleansed of viruses that might cause disease in humans. The experiments, reported on Thursday in the journal Science, may make it possible one day to transplant livers, hearts and other organs from pigs into humans, a hope that experts had all but given up. If pig organs were shown to be safe and effective, “they could be a real game changer,” said Dr. David Klassen, chief medical officer at the United Network for Organ Sharing, a private, nonprofit organization that manages...

    The Department of Defense announced Thursday that four more prisoners held at the military detention facility in Guantanamo Bay, Cuba are being transferred out, leaving the prison’s population at 41 as President Obama leaves office. One inmate is being transferred to Saudi Arabia, while the other three are going to the United Arab Emirates, CNN reported. This is likely to be Obama’s last transfer of inmates from Guantanamo before President-elect Donald Trump is sworn into office at noon on Friday. Trump has pledged to keep the military prison open and “load it up with some bad dudes.” When Obama entered...

    Texas Sen. Ted Cruz introduced a bill on Tuesday that would declassify information about the terrorist activities of detainees at Guantanamo Bay Naval Base in Cuba who have been released or transferred since Election Day. The move came after a report that the Obama administration recently struck a deal with Oman to transfer 10 detainees from Gitmo. The move brings the total number of detainees down to less than 50. Cruz and other Republicans have been heavily critical of Obama’s transfers and of his promise to close the facility before leaving office. Republicans point to a statistic that 30 percent...
