    The U.S. led anti-Islamic State coalition bombed the terrorist group 25 times July 3, Operation Inherent Resolve (OIR) said in a statement Tuesday. The 25 strikes consisted of “85 engagements” against the terrorist group and spanned Iraq and Syria. The strikes come amid two large scale U.S. backed pushes in both countries. The U.S. is currently in the last phase of supporting the Iraqi Security Force’s military campaign to retake the formerly ISIS held city of Mosul. ISIS controlled the city uncontested for nearly two years and has put up a brutal defense since U.S. backed operations began in October 2016....

The restrictions affect 14 airlines, six of which are based in the U.K. As in the U.S., the ban covers any electronic devices larger than a typical smartphone.

    Algerian flags mingled with Antifa banners as migrants and left wing extremists gathered on the streets of Paris to attack police and protest deportations in a March for Justice and Dignity. The event was nominally organised to protest alleged police brutality in the case of an individual identified in the media as Tho but despite that individual speaking out against the escalating violence in France, marchers used the occasion as an opportunity to bombard police with Molotov cocktails and burning flares in extraordinary scenes on Sunday.

    A disgraced former reporter was arrested by the Federal Bureau of Investigation Friday for several bomb threats to Jewish Community Centers, Jewish schools and Jewish museums around the country. Juan Thompson, 31, was arrested in St. Louis by the FBI for making at least eight bomb threats and the cyberstalking of an ex-girlfriend. Thompson was a former reporter for The Intercept, and was fired after it was discovered that he made up sources and stories, including one about Charleston shooter Dylann Roof. The criminal complaint states that threats made to the Jewish establishments across the country by Thompson were under...

    As we watch America devolve into the same racially charged, anti-police violence we endured in the late '60s,through the '70sand into the early 80s, our father Frank Connor, forever 33, would turn 75 years old today, July 12. Thirty threeyear old Frank Connor and 3 others were murdered while scores were maimed on January 24, 1975 when the Marxist, Puerto Rican terrorist group FALN blew up historicFraunces Tavern during a crowded lunchtime profiling, targeting and executing "reactionary corporate executives." We were to celebrate my recent 9th and brother's 11th birthdaysthat very night. Instead his mother's, wife's and the lives of...

    Shortened title. Full title: Now ISIS hides bombs inside teddy bears and toy trucks: Barbarians using improvised devices to target children as forces close in on Mosul In the war-ravaged town of Mosul, a teddy bear or truck is a rare treasure to a child. But these innocent-looking toys are actually the trigger for sinister booby traps that detonate as soon as they are touched. The ploy marks a sickening new low for Islamic State, who currently hold Iraqs second largest city, as they can only be intended to target children. Adults would walk straight past them. These and other...
  • Bomb-making factory found in Brooklyn apartment of Columbia professor

    Police stumbled upon a bomb-making factory Sunday in the home of a Columbia professor who specializes in the spread of infectious disease - and are investigating whether he and his roommate have terror ties.

The frightening cache was discovered almost by accident - Ivaylo Ivanov, the man living with Clatts, accidentally shot off the tip of his left index finger and sought police help in the street about 1:15...

    A commenter on Free Republic said it happened near Elie Wiesels funeral. I heard/read that a young man started climbing one of the boulders in CP when he stepped on something and it exploded very loudly. I believe he lost a foot and part of a leg. Poor kid. He seems to be very young and a good looking fellow. Not known if it was a firecracker of some sort or something more sinister. Happened near Elie Wiesel funeral. Dont know if that was related.

    Explosives in a Muslim prayer space? Shocking. Not. Obamas most trusted ally, President Erdogan of Turkey, said, The minarets are our bayonets, the domes our helmets, the mosques our barracks and the faithful our army. Boom. Literally. Can you see the Obama administration blowing up a Muslim prayer hall here in America, even if it were filled with explosives? Never. The Democrats, the party of treason, would wail about religious freedom. This is why mosques must be monitored, and not just for explosives, arms and munitions. But we must require US mosques to institute transparent, inspectable programs teaching against the...

    Fox News reporter James Rosen claimed intelligence sources have told him not only that Army Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl willingly collaborated with the Taliban, but that his involvement with the terrorist group may be as serious as you can imagine. Rosen spoke with Bill OReilly Wednesday night about his ongoing conversations with intelligence and Pentagon officials regarding both old and new investigations into Bergdahls likely desertion and possibly treasonous activities. My reporting has shown that the intelligence community also undertook a separate [from the Army] investigation of Sgt. Bergdahl, Rosen explained, both his final period of active duty that culminated in...

    Convicted leftist terrorist Susan Rosenberg must be counted among the unlikeliest candidates ever to be awarded a university teaching post. Just four years ago, Rosenberg was serving out the 16th year of a 58-year sentence for the possession of more than 700 pounds of explosives and a stockpile of illicit weapons. Moreover, the onetime member of a leftist terrorist outfit called The Family was also a suspect in a 1981 robbery-gone-awry that left three people dead in Nyack, New York. However, next January students at Hamilton College, a small liberal arts school in upstate New York, will know Susan Rosenberg,...

The FBI said this week it is investigating the case but analysts say its obvious why ISIS chose to target the Minneapolis-St. Paul area. The area is home to Americas largest Somali refugee community and has been a hotbed of Islamic terrorist recruitment dating back to at least...

    "Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump is no stranger to controversy, but his comments at his last rally before the Iowa caucuses begin has shocked and offended many combat veterans. At the event in Cedar Rapids, Trump described for the crowd a conversation he had had with a young man who had served two tours of duty in the Middle East, according to a report from Buzzfeed. This veteran told Trump that the "enemy" had stolen a lot of American military equipment, including armor-plated Humvees. What Trump said next set Twitter ablaze: Trump claimed that the armor on these vehicles was...

    A $2,700 per head fundraiser hosted by Chelsea Clinton Wednesday afternoon attracted so little interest that the Hillary Clinton campaign ended up selling the last of its 60 tickets for just $50. Clinton stopped by a New York City location for SoulCycle, a popular indoor cycling exercise chain, for what seemed like a quick and easy fundraiser. For $2,700, guests were promised a photo with Chelsea and a chance to see her in a relatively closed environment with few people. But it turns out the number of New Yorkers eager to shell out to attend a Chelsea Clinton cycling session...
