  • DID ANYONE TALKING ABOUT TRUMP'S SPEECH ACTUALLY HEAR IT?

    The media have lost their minds after Trump's magnificent speech on Monday. It's all hands on deck, no attack is too extreme. Their main point is: DO NOT LOOK AT THAT SPEECH. It has "words that wound." Much too dangerous even to read it. Instead of reporting what Trump said, the media give us the "gist" of it (in the sense of an unrecognizable distortion). It was awful, Hitlerian, beneath our dignity as a nation. They lie about what he said and then attack their own lies as if they're attacking Trump. The Washington Post's headline, which got their reporters...

    More than six years after a Muslim army major shot dead 13 people at Fort Hood, President Obama on Sunday night - for what may be the first time - publicly identified it as a terrorist attack. In his primetime Oval Office address on the threat of terrorism in the wake of last week's attack in San Bernardino, California, Obama said the threat had evolved in the years since 9/11. "As we've become better at preventing complex attacks like 9/11, terrorists turn to less complicated acts of violence like the mass shootings that are all too common in our society,"...

Senator Ted Cruz’s presidential stump speech electrifies conservative crowds with a cocktail of growls, whispers, warnings of impending doom, and at least one claim of personal accomplishment so powerful, it often brings many in the audience to their feet.

While many lawmakers are open to having a discussion on changing the rules in the Senate Committee on Armed Services, most said that they would defer issues of base security to military leaders — who have historically been against allowing concealed carry on their posts. Mr. Cruz formally sent a letter last month to Sen. John McCain, Arizona Republican and chairman of...

This comes on the heels of last weeks’ Purple Heart award ceremonies for the Ft.

    It's been nearly five years since a U.S. soldier opened fire on his own comrades. Army psychiatrist Nidal Hasan opened fire at Fort Hood on November 5, 2009, killing 13 people and injuring 30 others. One army sergeant, who was injured in that shooting and fought for his life to survive and recover, spoke Saturday at the Minnesota State Fair at the Mayo Clinic booth. "They called me number 14 for a while, because I shouldn't have lived, survived my wounds," said Sergeant Patrick Zeigler. As Zeigler takes a load off at the Minnesota State Fair, a fellow military man...

    The convicted shooter in the Fort Hood massacre has written a letter to the leader of the Islamic State saying he wants to become a “citizen” of the caliphate, in the latest example of the terror group’s reach inside the U.S. The letter from Nidal Hasan, obtained by Fox News, comes after two Americans reportedly died fighting for ISIS in Syria. Sources late Wednesday identified the second as Abdirahmaan Muhumed, of Minneapolis. Fox affiliate KMSP-TV in Minneapolis reported that Muhumed was killed in the same battle as Douglas McAuthur McCain, who grew up outside Minneapolis in the town of New...

    Stupidity and cowardice is latent in the DNA of the American Left when it comes to the threat from Jihad.. In a recent article in The Hill, it is clear that the administration refuses to acknowledge the terror threat to the US posed by ISIS/ISIL/IS.This is part of a long-standing pattern of denial to make Obama appear triumphant, particularly since the death of Bin Laden, but also before. The denial of the Jihadi connections and intentions of the Fort Hood and Little Rock shooters are examples as well…

    Full Title: Republicans Overturn Obama Decision To Deny Honors And Benefits To The Victims Of Fort Hood Terrorist Attack Sorry, Barack. This wasn’t “workplace violence.” It was a terrorist attack, and should be treated as such. Thanks to Republicans, it will be: Republicans on the House Armed Services Committee will overturn one consequence of Obama’s unwillingness to recognize the terrorism of the Fort Hood attack: victims will be eligible for the Purple Heart, allowing survivors to receive better and prompter health care from the VA. More than that, every victim will get the recognition and honor due to them. From...

    During last week's memorial service for victims of April 2 Fort Hood shooting, President Barack Obama spoke about the lingering hurt from the previous attack on the base in 2009. "Part of what makes this so painful is that we've been here before," Obama said. "This tragedy tears at wounds still raw from five years ago. Once more soldiers who survived foreign war zones were struck down here at home, where they're supposed to be safe." Yet, when victims of the first Fort Hood shooting invited the president to see those wounds up close, he refused, without explaining why. The...
