    FORT HOOD - Navy Chief Petty Officer Kenton Stacy, an EOD tech, is recovering at Brooke Army Medical Center in San Antonio from life-threatening injuries he sustained while working on an IED at a medical facility in Syria. Operation Inherent Resolve Commander Lieutenant General Paul Funk discussed the harrowing efforts to bring Stacy home to U.S. soil after the injury. Stacy has a long road to recovery. Funk said after Stacy's surgery, special forces medics started life-saving procedures on the EOD tech. He was first flown to a surgical team in Raqqah, where every member of the team gave him...

    Last Sunday in Las Vegas, Stephen Paddock turned his guns on a country music concert, killing 59, including himself, and wounding more than 500. The mass murder was beyond horrific, an act of pure evil as President Trump said, but it easily could have been worse in several ways.

    Writing from his cell on death row at Fort Leavenworth, Kansas, Fort Hood shooter Nidal Hasan has declared he is going on a “99 pound hunger strike,” according to a letter reviewed by Fox News. The former Army psychiatrist, who opened fire on unarmed fellow soldiers at Fort Hood, Texas, in November 2009, killed 13 people and injured 31 that day. Hasan was sentenced to death in 2013 and continues to declare himself an SoA, “soldier of Allah.”

    Dr. Sebastian Gorka, author of the best-selling book Defeating Jihad: The Winnable War, joined human-rights attorney and former State Department official David Tafuri to discuss the Chelsea bombing. Gorka said that from his travel records, we now know that bomber Ahmad Khan Rahami visited Quetta, “the hotbed of Salafi jihadism,” and home base of the Afghan Taliban’s leadership, the Quetta Shura. ... The director of the FBI himself has said there are 900 cases they’re investigating that are linked to ISIS alone, in every state of the union. That’s a huge labor-intensive exercise,” he noted. “Secondly, we have seen that...

    This is a petition to honor Miss Elizabeth (the Fort Hood Hug Lady) by posthumously renaming the Fort Hood Deployment center the Elizabeth Laird Deployment Center. Miss Elizabeth has doled out more than half a million hugs to soldiers leaving and coming home from Ft. Hood. She's touched so many lives. For some, her's was the last hug that they had on this earth. For others, her's was the first good thing that happened to them when they got home. She was there days, nights, weekends, holidays... rain or shine, Miss Elizabeth was there for our troops. And she did...

    A representative for a pro-Islamic State hacking group issued a chilling warning to members of the U.S. military and government Wednesday, promising that “very soon” followers of the organization would retaliate for overseas bombing targeting the terror organization. Speaking to TheBlaze using smartphone messenger application Kik, a representative for the Islamic State Hacking Division said the group is constantly spying on U.S. servicemen. The organization on Tuesday published personal information purporting to belong to U.S. military and government online. “Just like they spy on muslims, we are spying on them, watching their employees, watching their soldiers, recording their movements and...

May on July 19, 2015 - 1:55am Barack Hussein Obama does not seem to be in mourning for the four Marines and one Sailor killed in Chattanooga by the Islamic Terrorist. Many flags across our nation are flying at half-staff, but not by order of President Obama. He did not order flags at the White House and other federal buildings to be flown at half-staff. Obama did make the effort to light the White House in rainbow colors to celebrate the recent Supreme Court ruling...

Ted Cruz (R-TX) declared that the shooting in Chattanooga wasn’t perpetrated by a “lone gunman” “anymore than Hasan and Fort Hood was workplace violence” at Saturday’s Family Leadership Summit in Iowa. Cruz said, “You cannot fight and defeat radical Islamic terrorism when you have a president and an administration who refuses to utter the words ‘radical Islamic terrorism.'”

    The senator claims on the campaign trail that he was the reason the Fort Hood soldiers shot in a 2009 attack were awarded Purple Hearts. Why that’s stretching the truth just a tad. 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.

    Political Correctness: The Army has announced that as a result of Congress' making victims of attacks by foreign terrorist acts eligible, the Fort Hood victims will get Purple Hearts, and civilians will get Defense of Freedom medals. That language broadened the definition of an attack on eligible victims to include an assault by "a foreign terrorist organization." The definition includes attacks by a perpetrator or perpetrators in contact with a foreign terrorist organization or "inspired or motivated by a foreign terrorist organization" prior to the attack. The Nov. 5, 2009, attack on Fort Hood by Maj. Nidal Hasan, in which...

    Semantics: If it walks like a duck, quacks like a duck ... well, you get the idea. But not this White House, which called the Fort Hood massacre by a self-proclaimed jihadi yelling "Allahu Akhbar" "workplace violence." Despite Army denials, desertion charges appear likely and imminent in the case of Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl, who walked away from his combat post in Afghanistan. The White House line that we traded five Taliban generals for him because "we leave no man behind" is wearing thin. We do and should leave deserters behind, and if we ever get our hands on them, their...

    Security: In the wake of the Islamist terrorist attack in Paris, former New York Mayor Rudy Giuliani argues to reinstate a policy cancelled by Mayor Bill de Blasio, who has arguably left the city as exposed as it was on Sept. 10, 2001. Although the Paris terrorist attack by Islamists has not been linked to any mosque, the historical record is dotted with similar attacks that have such links, including the Nov. 5, 2009, rampage at the Army base in Killeen, Texas, by Maj. Nidal Hasan that killed 13 and wounded 31 as the self-proclaimed "Soldier of Allah" shouted "Allahu...

    “It’s long past time to call the Fort Hood attack what it was: radical Islamic terrorism. And, this recognition for Fort Hood terrorist victims is overdue. The victims and their families deserve our prayers and support, and this legislation rightly honors them for defending our nation in the face of a heinous act of terror”
 - Senator Ted Cruz (R-Texas) Reps. John Carter (R-Texas) and Roger Williams (R-Texas) added words to legislation of the 2015 National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) that expanded “eligibility for the Purple Heart to include members of the Armed Forces who have been killed or wounded...

    Victims of the Fort Hood shooting will soon be eligible to receive the Purple Heart, with Congress pushing ahead with a policy change that would officially recognize domestic terrorism as an issue, rather than the “workplace violence” designation the Obama administration had used. The issue has been contentious since the 2009 attack, with victims and their family members saying Army Maj. Nidal Hasan’s shooting spree was clearly linked to the broader war on terror that the U.S. is fighting overseas.
