    Hero flight attendants fought off an enraged passenger who attempted to storm the cockpit of a JetBlue flight out of Boston this week — at one point being heard saying “Allah” — in a brutal clash that has once again raised questions about airline safety. That passenger on JetBlue Flight 261 heading to San Juan, Puerto Rico, Wednesday night “had to be physically restrained by flight crew members … during the passenger’s attempt to gain access to the flight deck,” an FBI agent states in his affidavit. The suspect, Khalil El Dahr, “became angry” after a phone call he tried...

    We usually associate anniversaries with happy occasions: the date of the start of a romance, a wedding, the birth of a company or country. Celebrations abound — parties, dances, company picnics, bands, parades, fireworks, specialty cocktails, and special cakes. Then there are the other events — the death of a loved one, an accident, corporate bankruptcy, natural disasters such as hurricanes. These events are seared in our hearts, annually marked, not with jubilation, but with longing, sadness, even despair. Eclipsing both ends of this emotional spectrum are the catastrophic events that bind not just a family or a company, or...

    Tony Blair has said it is clear America has a "very limited appetite for military engagement" and that other Western nations need to figure out how to deal with "radical Islam" without the US. The former prime minister called on world leaders to come together to develop a common strategy against extremists ahead of the 20th anniversary of the 9/11 terror attacks. In a speech to the Royal United Services Institute (RUSI) military think tank, he said "radical Islam" continues to represent a "first-order security threat" that left unchecked "will come to us". ..."Like revolutionary communism, it operates in many...

    The U.S. government’s recent reset of its position to consider declassifying many FBI secrets about 9/11 is being strongly resisted in court by Saudi Arabia.Lawyers for thousands of 9/11 family members who are suing Saudi Arabia in federal court in New York, citing the “extraordinary circumstances” arising from the government’s about-face, asked the court late last month for an extension of a Sept. 15 deadline to submit reports from experts who have reviewed the evidence.“It is imperative that plaintiffs’ experts be afforded an opportunity to review this additional evidence before serving their reports,” wrote members of the Plaintiffs’ Executive Committees...

    Afghans have lied about their identities or destroyed their passports in hopes to win resettlement across the United States, the Associated Press (AP) reports. Officials with President Joe Biden’s administration who spoke anonymously to the AP said there have been instances where Afghans at screening sites in safe third countries outside of Afghanistan have sought to come to the U.S. by destroying documents to conceal their real identities.The AP reports:In one instance, a red flag popped up on an evacuee’s case as he was mid-flight between two of the overseas transit sites, another U.S. official said, speaking on condition of...

    Homeland Security head Alejandro Mayorkas together with his underling John Cohen and the propagandists at the Anti-Defamation League went to CNN on Wednesday to drop a new blood libel smearing White Americans as "domestic violent extremists" in line with the Taliban who are poised to start committing terrorist attacks at any moment. All the same tactics our globalist overlords used to smear all Muslims as terrorists in order to launch the War on Terror in the Middle East are now being used against the American people to launch a new domestic War on Terror here at home.

    Pakistan based terror group Tehreek-i-Taliban Pakistan has maintained ties with the Taliban as about 6,000 of its terrorists are on the Afghan side of the border, Dawn reported citing a report prepared for the United Nations Security Council (UNSC). The 28th report of the UN Analytical Support and Sanctions Monitoring Team says that terrorists from a variety of countries and militant groups continue to operate in Afghanistan. "The Monitoring Team continues to estimate the number of foreign terrorist fighters to be approximately between 8,000 and 10,000, mainly comprised of individuals from Central Asia, the north Caucasus region of the Russian...

    The Pentagon said Saturday morning at a briefing that as of August 14, about 117,000 people have been evacuated from Kabul, including 5,400 Americans. That number is far short of the 11,000 Americans who were estimated to still be inside Afghanistan given by White House press secretary Jen Psaki last week.

    Left-wing MSNBC intelligence analyst Malcolm Nance downplayed Thursday's suicide bombing outside of Kabul's airport, which reportedly killed at least four U.S. Marines, telling his nearly one million Twitter followers to "deal with it." While the attacks near the airport resulted in multiple casualties and forced most media members to brace for the worst, Nance didn't seem to think the terror attack was a big deal. "20 YEARS- FYI there have been terrorist suicide bombers killing civilians nearly DAILY in Afghanistan. This ain't new. It's why we are leaving," Nance tweeted before adding the controversial hashtag "#DealWithIt." Nance, who served in...

    Ten US servicemembers were killed in a series of suicide bomb attacks on Kabul airport on Thursday, the first American lives to be lost since Biden's disastrous evacuation effort began on August 14. The President has not commented publicly on the deaths and he is not scheduled to make any kind of statement or speech on Thursday. The deafening silence has angered Republicans who say the blood of those killed is on his hands. Dozens of people were killed, according to those on the ground including a New York Times reporter who counted 40 dead bodies. The Wall Street Journal...

    Incompetence, political weakness and fearmongering about foreigners in search of a new home has created a cruel immigration policy. But this structural cruelty pales in comparison to the comments made by some legislators who tout their opposition to welcoming Afghan refugees to our shores after many of these refugees put their lives on the line for two decades by helping American soldiers in that war-torn country. Thankfully, some state governors are breaking ranks with the nativists and have announced that they will welcome the Afghan refugees. "They supported our military efforts and served as translators, interpreters, drivers and more --...

    A major consequence of the turmoil in Afghanistan today caused by the refusal of President Joe Biden to alter his unilateral timetable to exit Kabul, is that it increased the damage inflicted on allies and friends, and has led the possible demise of the “special relationship” between the UK and the U.S., which projected power and influence in securing a cohesive Western approach in the world. In these circumstances, it is pertinent to ask. “Is the special relationship fact or fiction?” The term was coined by Winston Churchill in his “Iron Curtain” speech at Westminster College, Fulton, Missouri on March...

    “I enjoy being in America. It’s fun, you know? Because you had, you have so many things we never had in Russia. Like warning shots.” - Ukrainian comedian Yakov Smirnoff on The Johnny Carson Show, 1988. Comedy is easy. Risking your life over it is hard. If there is anything murderous psychotic fascists will not brook, above all else, it is being ridiculed. No sense of humor whatsoever. Historical precedents abound. In 1940, Adolf Hitler sentenced Charlie Chaplin and the Three Stooges to death in absentia for The Great Dictator and You Nazty Spy, respectively. All four comedians exhibited extraordinary...

    After the attacks on our nation on Sept. 11, 2001, President George W. Bush took to the airways to address the American people. Speaking to a nation in shock, he cast what had occurred in the framework of good and evil. "Today, our nation saw evil," the president said. And he offered up solace in Psalm 23, "Even though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I fear no evil for you are with me." Several days later, a number of evangelical pastors, including Pat Robertson and Jerry Falwell Sr., picked up on the theme of good...

    As a Green Beret operating from fire bases with over 50 direct action missions in Afghanistan, as well as a CIA liaison officer, I defeated many high value targets. Then as a contractor I supplied nearly 1,000 linguists to our troops on the ground and executed intelligence contracts for the DOD over a 12-year period. So, to see the Chinese begin discussions with the Taliban to provide their support necessary to keep the United States out and assert control over the region feels like a kick to the face. This will leave the United States at an increased risk of...

    Recent events have shown what many of us who watched ever-increasing attempts to politicize the military over the last election cycle feared most - partisan political ideology has supplanted competency as the defining attribute of our military’s top leaders. There were rumblings about the divide between the Trump administration and the Pentagon’s top generals around the November 2020 Presidential election, which was the first time in recent memory such information found its way into public view. The Chairman of the Joint Chiefs, Mark Milley, went so far as to distance himself and apologize for appearing alongside his Commander-in-Chief during the...

    Was Joe Biden’s utter foul-up of the Afghanistan withdrawal an anomaly, or part of a life-long pattern? Few people have had the opportunity that Biden has had to influence and direct U.S. foreign policy. Yet, Biden has a distinct incapability to make effective foreign policy decisions. As has been documented over the last 46 years, Biden gets it wrong on everything, all the time. Questionable VotingJoe Biden opposed offering aid to the South Vietnamese in 1975 when they were at the height of their war against the North Vietnamese. This helped the North to prevail and install its brutal regime,...

    As President Lyndon Johnson and the best and brightest of the 1960s were broken on the wheel of Vietnam, the Biden presidency may well be broken on the wheel of the Taliban's triumph in Afghanistan. Less than a week into the chaotic U.S. withdrawal at Hamid Karzai International Airport, a CBS poll found that Americans, while still approving of President Joe Biden's decision to get us out of this "forever war," were stunned by how badly botched the withdrawal was being executed. By 75-25, Americans believe the withdrawal is going badly. And those who believe it has gone "very badly"...

    By now, every witting person on earth knows the credibility of the United States has been disasterously damaged by events in Afghanistan. Thousands of American civilians are stranded and being held hostage by radical Islamic terrorists. Tens of thousands of brave Afghan allies are being hunted down and brutally murdered. resident Joe Biden is singularly responsible for this catastrophe. His incoherent press conference on Friday, Aug. 20 was a frightening example of the alternative reality Biden inhabits. He claimed the U.S. went to Afghanistan to destroy al-Qaida, and has done so. Yet less than an hour later, a Pentagon spokesman...
