All things are for the glory of our Lord.
She's in a much better place.
Hang in there Ian. Prayers headed your way.
Been very busy in real life. Got married last year, been going through a lot of changes in personal life. I still try to keep up on the news, but just don’t have the time to stay on top of TM like I used to. When I post to FR, it’s mostly just quick little snarky one-liners. :)
Please, for the love of God, someone take LGF out of the links in the big linkdump in the thread header.
Please add me to your ping list. Thanx
Snarky is my favorite word. Congrads Newlywed :)
Stay with the story CoCo. Your invaluable work shows when any of us get fixated on one aspect or story it can produce resolution
There ya go! No racial profiling, just country prejudice. I likes dat
Doug always stressed dry runs
Thank you very much....
Off topic but interesting to know...Bloomberg reported today the Mayo Clinic drops Medicare patients starting tomorrow saying US gov. pays to little....and so it begins!
Oh the Irony as Bo praised Mayo Clinic as model for efficient health care.
Pa. has two more bills moving to take Pa to single payer insurance..Gov. Tricky Rendall says he will sign if it gets to his desk.
Glad God is welcomed here on TM....what would we do apart from our great protector in these times!
You’ve been added and welcome to Threat Matrix.
Special thoughts and prayers, as a result of your tagline, for the loved ones of Spc. Joseph M. Lewis.
LOL, sorry about that. I didn’t touch the links for fear of further screwing up the html. It took me 4 hours just to replace the article.
(Go easy on me!)
*Note to TMers - Little Green Footballs - has jumped the shark and is NOT recommended as a source for accurate news on anything, much less terrorism related issues.*
No worries, I wasn’t mad at you! I know how things like that can slip through the cracks when you look at them all of the time!
At a minimum, 500 billion will be cut from Medicare leaving seniors twisting in the wind.
Let’s hope the upcoming elections will make a difference, if the health care bill can be stalled long enough.
I know you were teasing.
Congrats on your wedding!
Has there been a track record study done with this predictor?
Note that Canada's risk is less than one half of the US risk. ( Why? Airline Policy. The US has a "maybe" in keeping Jihadis off US bound flights, we do not do a search of the banned to fly list and tango suspect lists of the CIA, and allow last minute boarding of terrorists who do not even have passports, thats got to hurt)
Canada takes all the necessary precautions, because they do not labor under a political correctness tyrannical government.
What we have now is it's coming at us from all directions, the end result to weaken and bring us to a place where we have no choice but to comply at best.. or be isolated and off the international grid as a super power.
The Us has to be weakened so it cannot interferr with the International momentum of A One World Global Governance and Monetary System. BO is a Globalist so he has no concern of the US maintaining it's leadership on the world stage...which is why he had so much financial backing in the election...Soros owns him.
Additionally Canada has become in a sense a favored nation by Muslims.
I think it was about four or five years ago there was a huge push by Muslims to form a party in Canadas Parlimentary.. in order to Govern their own people in the court system under Sharia Law.
So in many ways Canada is not on their hit list.
Anyone know how that played out?
United Airlines flight returned to Lambert as a precaution because of ‘security concern’
Airport spokesman Jeff Lea says the flight returned because an effort was being made to obtain “some more information about a passenger.” He had no other details
Well, I’ve looked high and low but can’t find any info on a report that I heard early this morning on FOX.
Catherine Herridge was reporting about the extra security in New York last night. She stated there was one suspicious incident involving 3 “foreign passported” men relatively close to the Times Square area. She went on to state the men were carrying backpacks and they were checked out by LE. Nothing was found in the backpacks and lastly Catherine reported that the men were from Iran and definitely acting in a suspicious manner. FWIW
YES I heard the same report and looked everywhere - but nothing.
Seems to me a lot of mysterious things happening with events and people disappearing/not being reported etc.
Customs official confirms report of 2nd man held from Flight 253
Detroit — A federal customs and border protection official reversed himself today, admitting a passenger from Northwest Flight 253 was placed in handcuffs, searched and released after a canine alerted officers to his carry-on luggage......
LAGOS, Nigeria -- The U.S. gave Nigeria four full-body scanners for its international airports in 2008 to detect explosives and drugs, but none were used on the man suspected trying to blow up a Detroit-bound flight, Nigerian officials say.
Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab, tracked by cameras through the security check, only went through a metal detector and had his bag X-rayed when he arrived at Nigeria's busiest airport to start his journey, the officials say.
The Soter RS scanners delivers 3-D images that would have shown something hidden under clothing. But a spokesman for the anti-drug agency, which operates the Nigerian machines, told The Associated Press that the one at Lagos airport is used sporadically and only on potential narcotics smugglers.
Arabic study may have been cover for bomb suspect
Dec. 31, 2009
SAN'A, Yemen The Nigerian suspected of trying to bring down a U.S. airliner with explosives might have used Arabic studies as a pretext for entering Yemen before disappearing for months, perhaps into one of the lawless country's al-Qaida strongholds, fellow students and teachers said.
Interviews with staff and students at the Institute for the Arabic Language this week have revealed that Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab was frequently absent from classes and spent at most one month at the school in Yemen's capital, San'a, starting in late August before vanishing. Authorities say he didn't leave the country until December and that his whereabouts during that period remains a mystery.
Adding to the notion that his studies were a ruse, one teacher at the institute said the young man stood out because he already spoke Arabic with a considerable degree of fluency. "I noticed he understood the language very quickly and he was eloquent and convincing in his speech," Ahmed Moajjib said.
Thank you, Velveeta. Ever vigilant, with wisecracks at the ready when appropriate!
Well that’s interesting. Does Catherine Herridge have a email address via FoxNews? Perhaps you could email her for copy of the story she reported.
snip~ from massive attack prediction article
One of Sahaib Webbs closest friends is Siraj Wahaj, who purportedly is training a small army of jihadis at his mosque Masjid al-Taqwa in Brooklyn, New York, A New York City Police Detective - David Casey of the NYPD-INTEL-Terror interdiction unit has said that something very sinister is taking place at this mosque, which is located at 1226 Bedford Street.
Thank you for the ping Oorang.
The Al Qaida terrorist organization has threatened to open yet another front in its war with the West, according to a January 1 video message disseminated by the terrorists second-in-command Ayman al Zawahiri. Speaking to terrrorists living in North Africa, also known as the Magreb, Al Zawahiri said that the reconquest of Spain which was once largely occupied by Muslims will not be accomplished without disinfecting the Magreb of infidels. These would include, reportedly, both Frenchmen and Spaniards.
The video showed graphically the inentions of Al Qaida, led by Osama bin Laden, to take the war to the European Continent as it showed a Muslim wave sweeping over the Iberian Peninsula, which it identified as Al Andalus. Images of a church in Cordoba, which once served as a mosque, were shown on the video as a goal of the projected Muslim reconquest. Muslim groups in Spain have insisted that the church be reverted to its use as a mosque. Security in Ceuta and Melilla two Spanish cities on the shores of North Africa remains tense. Incidents on their borders are almost a daily occurence.
Al Qaida terrorists are currently holding three Spanish aid workers and are demanding concessions from the Spanish government. The aid workers were captured by terrorists in late November 2009 during a mission in Mauritania.
But Masjid al-Taqwa, like the hundreds of other radical mosques throughout the country, has never been raided and the leaders of Wahajs army remain to be questioned.
Piper catnapping kitty & running away
good question, sent to me today
do you remember back in the day when the U.S. was the model for Canada...
I miss Reagan
Soros has been my boogieman since Bubba
Thank you for posting this. Coco, you want to keep a running chronolgy of all these plane incidents? It will be a great 'oh we new'

I love that dancing black cat. >:-}
He reminds of our Mad Max.
He is now deeply involved in spreading anti-American sentiment via the use of rhetoric about jihad throughout the world via the Internet
E-mail Catherine Herridge about 3/4 way down on right
There is an organization that is quietly and secretly becoming very large and powerful. The FBI started this partnership or alliance between the federal government and the private sector in 1996 in Cleveland with a few select people
America must fight against the unholy Trinity that threatens to destroy us By Dr. Laurie Roth
Soros is the bottom feeder across the world stage...he’s a communist and makes no bones about revealing that. His dirty hands have fingerprints all over the nations..he plays with countries like toys. I have such disdain for the man.
I will try and keep track :)
