    The Las Vegas Shooting was the deadliest mass shooting in American history leaving 60 people dead and over 800 people injured. Despite the fact the shooting occurred in 2017, authorities have yet to release any concrete motive for the gunman Stephen Paddock.

Author Ashley St. Clair expressed her concern about the lack of answers and tweeted “We know nothing about the Las Vegas shooter who carried out the deadliest mass shooting in US history.” After St. Clair...

    Impeachable Offense In July 2021, Joe Biden abandoned Afghanistan’s Bagram Airfield in the middle of the night after nearly 20 years of US occupation. The Biden regime shut off the electricity and slipped away in the night without notifying the base’s Afghan commander, who discovered the Americans’ secret departure more than two hours after they left. The Taliban quickly took control of Bagram Air Base, which is only 30 miles north of Kabul on August 15th and released thousands of terrorists held at its prison. The Biden regime, Mark Milley and the Afghans left the Taliban military equipment, uniforms, rations...

    Shamima Begum, who left London when she was 15 to travel to Syria and join Islamic State, has lost a legal case over her British citizenship, meaning she will not be able to return to the UK. Begum had her British citizenship stripped from her in 2019, on national security grounds by then-home secretary Sajid Javid. She was found at a displacement camp in Syria and told the media she wished to return to Britain, the country where she was born. In 2019, she showed no remorse for her role in Islamic State. The Home Office has repeatedly asserted she...

    He was killed after US special forces raided a remote mountainous cave complex hoping to capture him. "Al-Sudani was responsible for fostering the growing presence of ISIS in Africa," Defence Secretary Lloyd Austin said. He also allegedly funded the group's activities globally, Mr Austin added. Analysts say the fact that US troops were sent under orders of President Joe Bidento kill or capture Sudani, rather than using a less risky drone strike, indicates his significance. Details about the nature of the operation have not been released, however the soldiers were drafted in via helicopter, according to the New York Times...

    Life often takes us in unexpected directions, but Maria Sue Bell’s life has been more rollicking and full of surprises than most. Back in 1984 and 1985, Bell served in the Army National Guard and was on Army Active Duty until Jan. 31, 1986. In a warning sign of what was to come, the criminal complaint against Bell says that she “received an Other Than Honorable (OTH) Discharge deemed Good for Service in lieu of a Court Martial,” although the reason for this has not been disclosed and has now been overshadowed by far more serious misconduct: Bell was sentenced...
  • A woman who left Alabama to join ISIS says she felt 'broken' after she was stripped of her US citizenship

    A woman who ran away from home in Alabama to join ISIS said she felt "broken" when the US revoked her citizenship for aiding the terror group. Hoda Muthana spoke in an interview with The News Movement (TNM), conducted from a prison camp in Syria where she is being held by US-allied forces. She said she wanted to return to the US, and volunteered to serve time in prison if necessary. That seems unlikely to happen — the Obama administration stripped Muthana of citizenship in 2016. In 2019, then-President Donald Trump tweeted that he had personally barred Muthana from the...

    There is significant concern that Turkey’s planned ground invasion into Syria to root out the U.S.-allied Kurds could open the floodgates for the release of thousands of imprisoned Islamic State terrorists. Syrian Kurdish forces have incarcerated thousands of ISIS terrorists from more than 50 countries in prisons in northeastern Syrian. Brigadier Gen. Patrick Ryder, the Pentagon’s press secretary, said Wednesday, "Recent air strikes in Syria directly threatened the safety of U.S. personnel who are working in Syria with local partners to defeat ISIS and maintain custody of more than 10,000 ISIS detainees."

The recording confirmed the death of the former IS chief along with the group's ex-spokesman. "Abu Ibrahim...
