    Another explanation is that he sees trouble ahead for Hillary Clinton. Because of his close relationship with former NYC police Chief Ray Kelly and others in the law enforcement community, he might have the inside track on the FBI investigation into the former Secretary of State’s handling of classified documents and questionable foundation-related activities. Democrats have done a fine job of completely dismissing the FBI inquiry, but the possibility that Clinton could face serious legal hurdles may be encouraging Bloomberg’s ambitions. The probe is not, as some Hillary backers have claimed, scandal-mongering by right-wing zealots. It is a serious investigation,...

    It is being (reported) that the United States Department of State, while Hillary Clinton served as Secretary of State, blocked investigations into the Mosque that was attended by Omar Mateen, the Islamic terrorist that carried out the worst mass shooting in United States history at a Orlando nightclub on Sunday morning. According to the recent reporting Hillary Clintons State Department did not investigate the Orlando killers Mosque because it unfairly singled out Muslims. Which is more staggering proof that the lefts ideology of political correctness is indirectly leading to innocent citizens being murdered.

The emails further reveal how, after inquiries from ABC News, the Clinton staff sought to protect the name of the Secretary, stall the ABC News reporter and ultimately accept the resignation of the donor just two days later. Copies of dozens of internal emails were provided to ABC News by the conservative political group Citizens United, which obtained...

    The relentless decline of Capitalism has begun. The time has come to fight against poverty. Time to obliterate the injustices. Time for the correct system. So declares a video promoting the global Caliphate Conference 2012 next month in Austria, suggesting the correct system is an international Islamic-based one replacing capitalism, which the video blames for catastrophe, civil war, and never-ending poverty. Organized by the fundamentalist Islamist group Hizb ut-Tahrir, the conference will take place on March 10th south of Vienna. ... a similar conference scheduled for March 4th in Belgium was cancelled after local opposition.

    Labor Raid: The FBI raids the Chicago home of a local union leader looking for terrorist connections as the union's former chief is investigated for corruption. Why are we not surprised? Thuggery and corruption are not quite synonyms for unionism, but it gets very close when you consider the Service Employees International Union, formerly led by Andy Stern. From being involved in fraudulent voter registration in Texas to beating up Tea Party activists outside town hall meetings in Missouri, SEIU's reputation is well-established. Now we can possibly add a linkage to terrorism. On Friday, the FBI searched eight addresses in...

    Ideology: At the ballpark of the president's favorite baseball team, assorted Marxists and workers of the world, or at least of the Windy City, were set to gather Monday night to raise money to support the great redistributionist. President Obama hasn't alienated quite all of his base with his failure to deliver on his list of promised progressive goodies. Back home in what is only half-jokingly referred to by some as the People's Republic of Chicago those who firmly believe in his dream of spreading the wealth rather than creating more of it have rallied around his falling flag. On...

    CHICAGO (AP) -- A federal jury convicted a Chicago businessman on Thursday of helping plot an attack against a Danish newspaper that printed cartoons of the Prophet Muhammad but cleared him of the most serious charge accusing him of cooperating in the deadly 2008 rampage in Mumbai. The jury reached its split verdict after two days of deliberations, finding Tahawwur Rana guilty of providing material support to terrorism in Denmark and to the Pakistani militant group that had claimed responsibility for the three-day siege in India's largest city that left more than 160 people dead, including six Americans.

A government official in Peshawar told BBCUrdu that although he had been receiving information regarding the death of Kashmiri...

    (Chicago-based terrorist causes India to revise its visa rules with U.S.) India is taking some precautionary measures after the arrest of Chicagoan David Coleman Headley as a terror suspect in the 2008 Mumbai attacks. The Asian country has revised its tourist-visa regulations, affecting those with long-term tourist visas, the India Times reports. Americans with five- or ten-year tourist visas will no longer be allowed to enter India within two months of their last departure from India if their last visit was longer than 90 days or if they have stayed longer than 180 days during the past year, an advisory...

    NEW DELHI/CHICAGO: India on Thursday said it was concerned that Mumbai terror suspect David Headley was to change his plea to guilty, even as New Delhi awaited his statement in a Chicago court. Home Minister P. Chidambaram met US intelligence chief Dennis C. Blair to convey New Delhi's concerns. If Pakistani-American Headley pleads guilty, it would affirm the suspicions of many in the security establishment in India that Headley was a double agent who worked for the CIA. Headley, arrested by the FBI in October last year, has moved a plea bargain at a Chicago court which will come up...

    Canada bankrolled man's aid agency during that time U.S. authorities have tied a Canadian aid worker to the al-Qaeda terrorist network as far back as 1988, almost a decade before the Canadian government cut off funding to his Ottawa-based Muslim charity. Evidence unsealed by a U.S. judge in Chicago shows Ahmed Said Khadr had dealings with senior al-Qaeda leaders while being financed by the Canadian International Development Agency. Although CIDA stopped giving aid money to Mr. Khadr in 1997 after he was arrested for allegedly bombing an embassy in Islamabad, Pakistan, the documents allege he was working with al-Qaeda long...

    Catholic universities in the United States have in recent years shown a weakness for cultivating far-leftist anti-Semites and haters of America. Perhaps the best known has been Notre Dame, home of the extremist Kroc Institute, which attempted to sponsor Tariq Ramadan, a Swiss Arab with ties to Al Qaeda, for a three-year professorship. But in many ways, DePaul University is even worse. DePaul is a large, if not particularly academically renowned, Catholic college in Chicago, nominally associated with Congregation of the Mission, more popularly known as the Vincentians. Until recently, the main cause of controversy surrounding DePaul was its insistence...
