    Jason Chan, a cancer survivor and Chicago restaurateur, sought sweet justice for one of his patrons last Thursday evening. Jason Chan, who is also a martial arts instructor and former bouncer, won an epic battle against a thief who tried to steal a customer's I-phone 5. Chan says he saw a suspicious man wearing ripped clothing walk into the restaurant --too messy an ensemble to be dining in a Michelin rated sushi restaurant like Juno in Chicago, Ill.

    Exotic Blades: The Karambit An Emerson folding karambit The karambit comes to us from Filipino Martial Arts (FMA), where it has a long history and complex technique background. The tiger claw shaped blade, held in a reverse grip, edge out, brings with it unique characteristics for slashing, hooking and controlling an opponent. It can be straight up nasty and very effective. Unlike many martial arts weapons, the karambit remains an excellent choice for a backup weapon in modern combat. In particular, the karambit is useful as a close-quarters backup to a handgun. Someone grabs for your handgun--hold onto it with...

    The Pentagon has released a statement confirming that soldiers could be prosecuted for promoting their faith: "Religious proselytization is not permitted within the Department of Defense...Court martials and non-judicial punishments are decided on a case-by-case basis...”. The statement, released to Fox News, follows a Breitbart News report on Obama administration Pentagon appointees meeting with anti-Christian extremist Mikey Weinstein to develop court-martial procedures to punish Christians in the military who express or share their faith. (From our earlier report: Weinstein is the head of the Military Religious Freedom Foundation, and says Christians--including chaplains--sharing the gospel of Jesus Christ in the military...

    The U.S. Army chose a quiet community in central Utah as the training ground for Special Forces soldiers needing to develop Jason Bourne-like skills and to learn how to build a resistance movement by infiltrating the town leadership. With the deeply religious culture present in Manti, Utah and the desert landscape of the area, residents were deemed ideal candidates by the Defense Department to role play with soldiers in the 10th Special Forces as part of a two week training exercise in July on unconventional warfare tactics. Now that sequestration is in full effect, the Utah mission was called on...

It is estimated that anywhere between 200 to 400 thousand foreign troops have entered through US borders.

    This past Friday afternoon brought a new executive order from the White House. It was titled, “National Defense Resources Preparedness.” This order sent the blogosphere and conservative news followers into a terrified frenzy. I even sent out an e-mail to many on my blast list with a link to the order on the White House website, because it is an alarming thing in light of the current communist administration in Washington. Many people are convinced that this means Barack Obama (or whatever his name is) is setting up a situation to declare peacetime martial law in America. In fact, one...

    At the very least, the administration has wasted a huge amount of the nation’s time. At worst, Obama is in fact not eligible to be President. Would that be uncomfortable? Would it be inconvenient? Would it be problematic? Of course. But this nation has survived many traumatic events in its past and would survive this. The Constitution is the supreme law of the land- and it must be upheld.

    They can crush a stack of concrete slabs with a bare fist, walk with catlike balance on a bamboo pole, and generate deadly kicks and punches at lightning-fast speeds. Real-life martial artists have long defied what many people would think is humanly possible, and their seemingly superpowered abilities have inspired generations of movies and television shows. But where do the true skills end and the special effects begin? Maybe Hollywood magic doesn't enter the equation as soon as you think. For the upcoming television special, Fight Science, researchers used high-tech equipment to put real martial artists to the test.

    Last week’s announcement that the terrorist threat warning level has been raised in parts of New York, New Jersey, and Washington, D.C. has led to dramatic and unprecedented restrictions on the movements of citizens. Americans wishing to visit the U.S. Capitol must, for example, pass through several checkpoints and submit to police inspection of their cars and persons. Many Americans support the new security measures because they claim to feel safer when the government issues terror alerts and fills the streets with militarized police forces. As one tourist interviewed this week said, “It makes me feel comfortable to know that...

    NEW YORK — Sovereignty has been turned over to the interim government in Iraq -- but the nation remains a hotbed of terrorist activity, and its security situation is far from settled. Some Iraqi officials say that imposing martial law (search) would enable them to get the upper hand over the insurgents who have been trying to derail democracy. "I think the Iraqis understand the best way to find the terrorists is go on the offense and find the killers before they kill," President Bush said in Istanbul Monday in an address with British Prime Minister Tony Blair after the...
