    TOWNSEND, Mass. A 225-pound pig that attacked and seriously injured a man less than two hours after attacking a woman at a Massachusetts farm will be put down. Townsend Police Chief Robert M. Eaton Jr. said his department was investigating "two very unfortunate farm incidents" in the town about 50 miles northwest of Boston. Police and emergency responders were called to the farm Tuesday evening for a report of an injured woman. "I need an ambulance. My husband is not home and my pig just literally attacked me," Shannon Hernandez told a 911 dispatcher. "Your what?" the dispatcher asked. "My...

    A groundbreaking Israeli security system could have helped French authorities prevent the Paris massacre last November - but authorities balked at the deal under pressure from the anti-Israel boycott movement. Speaking to Fox News, an Israeli counter-terrorism source with intimate knowledge of both the software involved and the deal itself said that after the Charlie Hebdo and Hyper Cacher attack the previous January an Israeli company offered to provide French authorities with special terrorist-tracking software, which could well have enabled them to flag the ISIS terrorist network operating under their noses. But although the French were initially very keen on...

    HAVANA (Reuters) - U.S. President Barack Obama's visit to Communist-led Cuba was an "attack" on its history and culture aimed at misleading a new business class, Foreign Minister Bruno Rodriguez said on Monday, the latest sign of blow-back after the ground-breaking trip last month. "In this visit, there was a deep attack on our ideas, our history, our culture and our symbols," Rodriguez said at the Communist Party congress. Cuban leaders have hardened language against the United States since Obama became the first U.S. president to visit the island in 88 years, with Fidel Castro accusing him of sweet-talking the...

    The recent terrorist attack in Istanbul was not an attack aimed at Israel, Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan said on Thursday, according to Reuters. Erdogan made the remarks in a speech at the Brookings Institute think tank. The attack in Istanbul killed three Israelis and an Iranian citizen but Erdogans remarks indicated he did not think the terrorists targeted Israelis. The Turkish president also said in his speech he expected a meeting of Turkish and Israeli officials next month to yield positive results, after the sides collaborated closely following the Istanbul attack. .....

    In the wake of deadly terror attacks in Brussels, US President Barack Obama stated that it was important to avoid measures that might stigmatize Muslims-Americans, but the Republican presidential candidates were quick to disagree. In his weekly media address, President Obama responded to the double attack in Brussels that left 31 dead and approximately 300 wounded. Two of the dead and 14 of the wounded were American citizens. The Islamic State(ISIS) took responsibility for the attack. Obama said that targeting Muslims would be counterproductive. [Muslim-Americans are] our most important partners in the nations fight against those who would wage violent...

    I get that the media has gotten the memo that Donald Trump is the greatest threat to civilization since NBC’s “The Slap,” but the controversy surrounding the Trump v Ted Cruz wife-dissing battle has revealed a stunning bit of tunnel vision, particularly among liberals. While everyone piles on Trump for retweeting an unflattering photo comparison of Heidi Cruz and Melania Trump, they’re giving Cruz and his SuperPAC a complete pass for what amounts to a political sexual assault on Melania Trump. Both attacks were ugly; I would submit that the explicitly sexual nature of the attack on Mrs. Trump is worse,...

    A masked man burst into a 7-Eleven near Seattle early Sunday morning, swinging a hatchet and slicing the store clerk. Before the masked man could seriously hurt anyone, however, a customer who had been drinking his morning coffee pulled out a concealed weapon and fatally shot the attacker. Authorities did not name the attacker or the customer, but they did hail the concealed weapon owner as a hero. This could have been disastrous, King County Sheriff Sgt. Cindi West told KIRO 7. Had this guy not shot, who knows what would have happened. We might have a dead clerk right...

    Russia on Sunday accused Turkey of sending its military across the Syrian border to prevent Kurdish groups there from consolidating their positions, while Turkish authorities imposed curfews on two mainly Kurdish towns where Turkey's security forces are set to launch large-scale operations against Kurdish militants. Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov said Russia has evidence of Turkey's "creeping expansion" in northern Syria. "According to our information, they are digging in a few hundred meters from the border inside Syria," Lavrov said in an interview with Russian REN TV broadcast on Sunday. Calls placed to Turkish officials weren't answered. In southeastern Turkey,...

    As the news of the terrorist attack in San Bernardino developed, I was became concerned with the amount of ammunition that law enforcement authorities found in the killer’s apartment. Despite Farook and Malik having over 1500 rounds with them when they were killed, they had left over 3,000 rounds and twelve pipe bombs behind. That’s close to 5,000 rounds of ammo. The newsreaders are telling you one thing, but the tactical mind understands that this cache was likely gathered for a reason, for a bigger operation involving several gunmen. Now more information is filtering out. After reconstructing Farook’s crushed cell...

Investigators on Thursday continued to search for digital footprints left by Syed Rizwan Farook and Tashfeen Malik, scouring a downtown San Bernardino lake for electronic items, including a hard drive that the couple was hoping to destroy, sources told The Times. FBI agents will probably spend days searching Seccombe Lake and canvassing the neighborhood for clues after receiving a tip...

One official said the two decided not to go through with the earlier attack after a round of terror-related arrests in the area. "They got spooked," the official said. The purported plot bolsters assertions law enforcement officials have made since the San Bernardino attacks, saying Farook had been radicalized...

The Lakers were in Washington D.C. last night for the only time this year. So Obama figured, who cares about the American people getting killed by a crazed Islamic radical and his wife. I’ll go talk some basketball with Kobe Bryant.

    Mass shootings this year already had stained in blood an American church, a health clinic, a movie theater and schools when on Wednesday another wave of gun violence hit a social services center in San Bernardino, killing 14 people and injuring 21. The string of shootings — many of them unfolding in live coverage seen in homes and workplaces — have left many in the country deeply unsettled about the gun violence that has become an all-too-routine part of American life. “It’s becoming commonplace. You check the news; it’s another shooting,” said Harriet Smith, 60, of Sebastopol, who said she...

    Toronto police have found several guns and a religious book in the trunk of a car that was abandoned after a crash. The single-vehicle collision happened at Allen and Transit roads, north of Wilson Avenue, around 4:30 a.m. on Friday. The routine investigation turned into something much more when police arrived to find no one in the car. However, they did find a machine gun with a silencer, two handguns, one silencer for a handgun, and a small amount of ammunition. Police said the religious materials do not appear to have any connection to the investigation, and it is likely...

    Washington (CNN) President Barack Obama said in an interview that aired Thursday that he is confident the U.S. is safe from a Paris-style attack from ISIS and that American law enforcement is well equipped to protect the nation during the holidays. "ISIL will not pose an existential threat to us. They are a dangerous organization like al Qaeda was, but we have hardened our defenses," Obama told CBS. "The American people should feel confident that, you know, we are going to be able to defend ourselves and make sure that, you know, we have a good holiday and go about...

    A Muslim U.S. citizen and his wife burst into his office holiday party with assault rifles and tactical clothing, massacred 14 and injured 17 before they were both shot dead in a police chase through suburban San Bernardino. Syed Rizwan Farook, 28, was at the celebration for local health officials but reportedly left angry before returning heavily armed with wife Tashfeen Malik, 27, and opening fire at the city's Inland Regional Center Wednesday morning. The two escaped the scene before being tracked by police to a home one city over. They sped away from the house in a black...
  • Obama in Paris: Mass shootings just don't happen outside the United States

    Via the Free Beacon, this would be like Ariel Sharon visiting Manhattan in October 2001 and casually observing that terrorism just doesn’t happen outside Israel. What he means here, I assume, is that mass shootings don’t happen outside the U.S. with the frequency that they do here. (Either that or he’s categorizing the Planned Parenthood shooting differently from the clear-cut political terrorism that Paris saw a few weeks ago, which, if so, is waaaay off-script from the left’s “pro-lifers are terrorists” narrative this week.) And so we return to the evergreen question whenever he starts talking guns in the aftermath...

    Yesterday we reported on how a Super PAC that has apparently supports Senator Marco Rubio has taken up Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL)'s attack line against Senator Ted Cruz. Back in July, Ted Cruz was one of a super-majority of senators who voted to curtail the ability of the NSA to bulk collect the phone use data of Americans. In the wake of the Paris attack, Rubio perceives there is a) a disadvantage to Cruz in his vote and b) highlight that vote and painting Cruz as “weak on terrorism” will work to Rubio’s advantage. I suppose there are GOP...

    At least 12 people were killed on Tuesday when an explosion tore through a bus full of Tunisian presidential guards in an attack that one source said was probably the work of a suicide bomber. Ambulances rushed wounded from the scene and security forces closed off streets around Mohamed V Avenue, one of the main streets in the capital Tunis, where the charred wreckage of the bus lay, not far from the Interior Ministry.

    BEGIN TRANSCRIPT RUSH: Now, let's look at some of the headlines here in the Trump Stack because it's recent history repeating itself. How many times in the course of this campaign since Trump has announced have the Drive-By Media and the Republican establishment believed that they had him? I can't count the number of times Trump has said something or done something that media and the Republican Party have salivated. "That's it," they say, "that's it, he just stepped in it. No recovery from this," and yet he just keeps climbing. And he's continuing to climb in the polls, and...
