  • The Rise of Soft-Target Terror Attacks Is a Symptom of Police Success (Terrorism the new normal)

    s this our new normal? During my FBI career as a Special Agent and ultimately Assistant Director, the FBI, police, and domestic security agencies viewed terrorist incidents through a black and white, binary lens. If we ďallowedĒ an attack to happen, we had failed. If we prevented an attack, we had succeeded. Yet, the increase in lone wolf, soft-target attacks ó particularly attacks where trucks and cars are driven into large, vulnerable crowds ó can actually be viewed as a symptom of our success. The Halloween terror attack that occurred in New York City raises an important question: Do we...

    A league spokesman said owners will consider player input on the issue, but suggested that a rule change would not require player approval. The National Football League’s owners will discuss next week whether to unilaterally change league policy and require players to stand during the national anthem. The decision to consider the change came after weeks of persistent criticism from President Donald Trump about players protesting during the anthem, including his call for fans to boycott games if the demonstrations continue. On Sunday, Vice President Mike Pence left an Indianapolis Colts game after members of the San Francisco 49ers took...

    Republican presidential candidate Ted Cruz on Monday called for armed protesters who occupied a federal building in Oregon to "stand down peaceably." "Every one of us has a constitutional right to protest, to speak our minds," Cruz told reporters in Iowa. "But we don‚Äėt have a constitutional right to use force and violence and to threaten force and violence against others. So it is our hope that the protesters there will stand down peaceably, that there will not be a violent confrontation."

    New Yorkís St. Patrickís Day Parade capitulates in a two-decade-long dispute with gay groups. One of New York Cityís longest-running civic and political battles came to an end this week, not with a bang but a whimper. The organizers of the New York City Saint Patrickís Day Parade announced that they would allow the Lavender and Green Allianceóa group composed of gay, lesbian, and transgender people of Irish descentó to participate in the annual march up Fifth Avenue. The groupís application to join the parade had been denied every year since 1994 due, parade organizers said, to its advocacy of...

    14-year-old Ahmed Mohamed, who made headlines last week after he was arrested for bringing a homemade clock into school, has already received praise from a number of familiar names such as Barack Obama and Facebookís Mark Zuckerberg. Now, to Mohamedís further delight, tech giants Microsoft have pledged their allegiance to the whizz-kid in generous fashion. The multinational technology firm expressed their support for Ahmed, not through kind words, but by sending the young engineer a huge hamper of tech goodies, including a Cube 3D printer.

    GEORGETOWN ó U.S. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell said Monday that he hoped Congress could override a veto of a resolution that disapproves of President Barack Obama's nuclear deal with the Iranians, but he acknowledged the president still had "a great likelihood of success." In remarks to the Scott County Chamber of Commerce, McConnell said he hoped "to have a respectful, uplifting debate" when the Senate returns to vote on the resolution. But McConnell, who repeatedly has called the deal with the Iranians "flawed," cautioned that Democrats could sustain a veto of the resolution Republicans will offer when they return...

    Obama is on his way to decimating the greatest military organization on the planet. He has already fired much of the cream of the officersí corps, letting go of hundreds of our most experienced, battle-hardened combat leaders, and now he's about to gut the rank and file, the soldiers, the grunts, the mainstay of any army. I have stated many times, as one who remembers Pearl Harbor and the dark days of World War II, that only two things protect America: (1) the grace of Almighty God and (2) the United States military. It was that way in 1941, and...

    A Maersk ship flagged under the Marshall Islands is forced to sail to southern Iran by its Revolutionary Guard Corps.

U.S. forces operating in the region heard and responded to the distress call sent by the M/S Maersk Tigris, sailing under the flag of the Marshall Islands, during a confrontation with the Iranian Revolutionary Guard Corps. The Marshall Islands are under a defense treaty with the United States; the U.S....

    Terrorist factions in Gaza are apparently split once again over the possibility of accepting an Egyptian ceasefire proposal, with Hamas stubbornly refusing to accept it and at least two Islamic Jihad leaders claiming a truce will come into effect imminently. Islamic Jihad official Khaled al-Battash told interviewers a ceasefire would be coming into effect "within hours", along the same basis as the ceasefire following Operation Pillar of Defense in 2012, as outlined by an Egyptian proposal. The truce deal would include provisions for the rehabilitation of Gaza after a month and a half of fierce fighting, as well as an...

    As the well-coordinated, Russian and Militant Muslim giant military pincer maneuver continues to rapidly succeed for control of the Eastern Mediterranean formerly Sovereign Nations, will NATO's Turkey soon have to decide if Obama's failed "Pen and Phone, Whack-a-Mole" Military Exceptionalism, is better or worse than Putin or ISIS? Control of the Eastern Mediterranean and the Suez Canal by Russia's Navy would allow the free flow of Muslim Militant's Oil to the Russian-controlled Ukraine Oil Pipelines to Europe, at a mutually beneficial price to Putin and ISIS, of course.

    In what was described as a ďpurely emotionalĒ appeal that did not reveal the necessary specificity to assuage lawmakersí concerns about a deceptive Iran on the brink of acquiring the ability to produce nuclear weapons, U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry met with members of the U.S. Senate banking committee on Wednesday afternoon, Nov. 13. Kerry remained adamant that if congress ups the sanctions, it will push away Iranians from the negotiating table. And many members of congress seemed to be just as adamant that de-fanging sanctions at this stage of negotiations, when the Iranians remain unwilling to make major...
