    Canada will introduce new anti-terror laws that will make it a crime to promote terrorism against Canadians online or elsewhere, a senior government official said Friday. The laws will also allow anyone suspected of being involved in a terror plot to be detained without charge for up to seven days, and empower Canadas spy agency to thwart attacks directly in a significant expansion of their mandate. The official provided details to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to speak ahead of Fridays announcement.

    WASHINGTON The U.S. military will provide housing space for up to an additional 5,000 unaccompanied Central American children who have illegally come across the border, Pentagon spokesman Col. Steve Warren said Wednesday. Secretary of Defense Chuck Hagel signed the authorization last week at the request of the Department of Health and Human Services. Hagels order also extends the housing assistance mission to Jan. 31, 2015. In May, the Pentagon committed to providing space to up to 3,600 children for 120 days. There are 2,500 children being housed at Fort Sill, Okla., Naval Base Ventura County, Calif., and Lackland Air...

    Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia warned the University of Hawaii law school the Supreme Court will eventually authorize wartime abuse of civil rights like internment camps. The Washington Examiner reported: Justice Antonin Scalia predicts that the Supreme Court will eventually authorize another a wartime abuse of civil rights such as the internment camps for Japanese-Americans during World War II. You are kidding yourself if you think the same thing will not happen again, Scalia told the University of Hawaii law school while discussing Korematsu v. United States, the ruling in which the court gave its imprimatur to the internment camps.

    The following self-learning course from the U.S. Army Military Police School at Fort McClellan describes procedures for military police involvement in civil disturbance operations. The course makes it clear that temporary detention facilities in the event of a civil disturbance overloading local resources would be operated under existing military doctrine for internment facilities. The course cites U.S. Army FM 3-19.40 Internment/Resettlement Operations, which is now numbered FM 3-39.40 since its most recent revision in 2010, as the primary reference for the operation of these facilities. This lesson is designed to describe the nature and causes of disaffection and social unrest;...

    According to the American Historian Will Durant, Animals claw each other to death, men consume each other by due process of law. And with that sentiment in mind, it is easy to see why the Obama Administration has made one of the worst foreign policy decisions in American history. Of course, I am talking about the decision to try terrorists for crimes in New York City in a criminal court using the laws of our land. Let us count the ways this decision is beyond negligent; it is a gross dereliction of duty:

    WASHINGTON -- Two scholars say in a new research paper that despite earlier denials, the Census Bureau was deeply involved in the roundup and internment of Japanese Americans at the onset of U.S. entry into World War II. The academics say the Census Bureau's involvement included identifying concentrations of people of Japanese ancestry in geographic units as small as city blocks, lending a senior Census Bureau official to work with the War Department on the relocation program and a willingness to disclose names and address of Japanese Americans. While it is common today for the Census Bureau to publish reports...

The facilities would be intended to house individuals and families when the president declares it a matter of national security requiring it. Hastings dismissed fears that these centers would be abused to stifle opposition to the government. The decision on when or who will be housed in these facilities will not be made by a miscreant president like Bush or Nixon, Hastings reassured his critics. I have the utmost confidence in President Obamas humanitarian instincts. If someone...

    LONDON (AP) -- The threat of homegrown terrorists attacking Britain is greater now than any time since the Sept. 11 attacks, a British Sunday newspaper reported, citing a leaked intelligence document. More than 2,000 British-based Islamic terrorists are believed to be plotting attacks, according to a government threat assessment prepared this month that The Sunday Telegraph said it had seen. "The scale of al-Qaida's ambitions toward attacking the U.K. and the number of U.K. extremists prepared to participate in attacks are even greater than we previously judged," the newspaper quoted the document as saying. It said the document was being...

The meeting was conducted under Chatham House rules, which mean that no one attending is supposed to divulge what is said.

Sir Ian said the British people should 'brace themselves for a truly appalling act of terror'. He said that following this act...

    HUNT, Idaho - The National Park Service wants Congress to remove the word "internment" from the name of a national park commemorating a World War II prison camp for Japanese-Americans. In a management plan for the Minidoka Internment National Monument finalized this week, the Park Service says the term legally means imprisonment of civilian enemy aliens during wartime and does not accurately reflect the government's forced relocation of thousands of U.S. citizens of Japanese descent. The agency wants the name changed to Minidoka National Historic Site, which would match with the only similar prison camp under its protection, California's Manzanar...

    The internment of the Japanese Americans of Washington, Oregon and California will never happen again. But our constitutional rights are always at risk when we believe we are under threat of attack, which is why the internment remains a live issue.In 1942 the federal government interned 112,000 ethnic Japanese, most of them U.S. citizens and most of them for the duration of World War II. The ostensible reason was that they could not be trusted. Most historians say it was done from hysteria and racial fear. That is also the view I heard from my Seattle family, and the...

The home secretary's planned "control orders" would also cover UK citizens. They follow a law lords ruling that the detentions broke human rights laws. Twelve men are currently held under the existing powers, introduced after the US terror attacks on 11 September 2001. Deals are already being sought to deport some of the men. Most of the detainees are in Belmarsh Prison in London. Mr Clarke said efforts would continue to deport them to their countries of...

    For years, it has been my position that the threat of radical Islam implies an imperative to focus security measures on Muslims. If searching for rapists, one looks only at the male population. Similarly, if searching for Islamists (adherents of radical Islam), one looks at the Muslim population.And so, I was encouraged by a just-released Cornell University opinion survey that finds nearly half the U.S. population agreeing with this proposition. Specifically, 44 percent of Americans believe that government authorities should direct special attention toward Muslims living in America, either by registering their whereabouts, profiling them, monitoring their mosques, or infiltrating...

    During World War II, the U.S. government interned about 120,000 ethnic Japanese living in America, two-thirds of whom were U.S. citizens. This is almost universally regarded as a shameful blot on Americas history, a cautionary tale of racism, paranoia, and wartime hysteria. In 1988 President Reagan called it "a grave wrong" and signed legislation authorizing $20,000 in reparations to each surviving internee. In 2000 another eminent conservative, Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia, assailed his colleagues ruling striking down Nebraskas late-term abortion ban by likening it to Dred Scott and Korematsu, the rulings which upheld the constitutionality of, respectively, slavery and...

Roosevelt. And it was here that feisty newspaper editor Walt Woodward denounced their removal as a civil-rights violation. His was a lone newspaper voice in...

    Sixteen years ago, President Ronald Reagan signed the Civil Liberties Act, proclaiming it "a great day for America." It provided $1.65 billion in restitution to 82,000 individuals of Japanese ancestry who had been subjected to evacuation, relocation and internment during World War II. Although it was almost universally hailed at the time, the decision was one of Reagan's biggest blunders. In a rare capitulation to political correctness, Reagan ignored the advice of his own military and legal experts who opposed wartime reparations for ethnic Japanese evacuees and internees. The road to reparations was paved with injustice, intellectual dishonesty and incompetence....

    The use of profiling based on race, ethnicity, nationality or religion is necessary in a time of war, even in such an extreme case as the internment of thousands of Japanese on the West Coast during World War II, author Michelle Malkin told a Bothell crowd last night. Her controversial views, detailed in her book "In Defense of Internment: The Case for 'Racial Profiling' in World War II and the War on Terror," drew some 200 people to Cedar Park Church, many of them supporters. When naysayers challenged her thinking, many in the crowd applauded to cut them...

    Please forgive the length of this post, but the topic of forced evacuations of persons of Japanese heritage from exclusion areas during WWII is one subject to much distortion and fantasy. In order to make an honest appraisal of the events one must open their mind to the historical record, not a version sanitized for other causes. Please, do us both a favor and read the whole post before you comment. Also, to all you PM's out there, don't try and ascribe thoughts and motivations that do not exist in my text. If you do, you will most likely find...

    More Democratic Grandstanding! More Playing Of The Race Card and Historical Revisionism by Democrats! I can't believe what I just read on Fox News! North Carolina Republican Congressman Howard Noble is now under attack by Congresswoman Nancy Pelosi and the Democratic Party aka "The Rewrite and Judge History Under Today's Standards Party." On Tuesday Noble commented that the internment of Japanese-Americans during WWII was for their own safety as well as being motivated by national security concerns. Now I ask, what is wrong with that statement? Nothing. It's TRUE!! Vigilantiism was a common practice in the first part of the...
