    CLEVELAND — Donald Trump is putting his stamp on the official policy platform of the Republican Party. Republican Platform Committee members on Tuesday voted to include language calling for the construction of a wall on the U.S.-Mexico border. And in a nod their presumptive presidential nominee’s support for a temporary ban on Muslim immigration, they also endorsed language that would impose “special scrutiny” of foreign nationals seeking to enter the U.S. from “regions associated with Islamic terrorism.” Both provisions are departures from the GOP platform of 2012, when Republicans nominated Mitt Romney for president. That party platform then called for...
  • Worker at L.A.-area Mosque May Be Linked to 9/11 Attack

    LOS ANGELES (KABC) -- Could someone who worked at a Los Angeles-area mosque be linked to the deadliest terror attack on U.S. soil? New allegations about the 9/11 attacks are coming from someone close to the classified investigation. In the three years following the terror attacks the 9/11 Commission found no evidence the Saudi government or high-ranking Saudi officials funded Al Qaeda. But John Lehman -- a former member of that investigative commission -- said a classified section of the investigation shows that as many as six Saudi individuals may have played a role in the attacks. One of those...

    Candidate Ted Cruz and candidate John Kasich have officially “suspended” their campaign efforts to win the republican nomination. However, the campaign effort to deliver a resounding win for Donald Trump continues.Yes, a major hurdle has been crossed – Donald Trump is now the last remaining candidate running for the nomination; but that doesn’t mean the push through the last remaining states should be any less important. Every vote counts. Every delegate matters.Anyone who is inclined toward complacency needs only to look at the reaction yesterday by House Speaker Paul ‘Omnibus‘ Ryan and note why it is vital for the...
  • Activating the Sleepers: Islamic State Adopts a New Strategy in Europe

    Der Spiegel ^ | March 29, 2016 – 03:14 PM | Christoph Reuter
    Last week’s attacks in Brussels show that Islamic State has built up a sophisticated network of terrorists that goes well beyond Al-Qaida’s capabilities. It is now able to strike using sleepers who have not yet been identified by security officials. […] Testimony from deserters suggests the terror organization began establishing sleeper cells in multiple European countries early on, in Turkey in particular. According to the former IS fighters, they are made up of men who aren’t on any watch lists. This enables IS to elude the vulnerability suffered by many based in Europe — namely that they are known terrorists....

    Lobbyists in Washington say they are being flooded with questions and concerns from foreign governments about the rise of Donald Trump. Officials around the globe are closely following the U.S. presidential race, to the point where some have asked their American lobbyists to explain, in great detail, what a contested GOP convention would look like. The questions about Trump are “almost all-consuming,” said Richard Mintz, the managing director of Washington-based firm The Harbour Group, whose client list includes the governments of Georgia and the United Arab Emirates. After a recent trip to London, Abu Dhabi and Beijing, “it’s fair to...

    Senator Sen. Jeff Sessions (R-AL)80% warned that trade deals are eating away our national sovereignty and threatening our security on Thursday’s edition of Breitbart News Daily. Breitbart News executive chairman and host Stephen K. Bannon compared the issues at stake in Britain’s upcoming vote on exiting from the European Union with the 2016 U.S. presidential election, and asked Sessions if the latter could be seen as “essentially an up-or-down vote on national sovereignty of the United States of America.” Sessions said the issue of sovereignty was definitely at stake in these elections. “If you don’t secure the border, as Trump...

    As the bad news out of Brussels continues to unfold today, we are reminded of some of the coverage that the city has received in the past. As I listened to the expert analysis of precisely what went so wrong there, the name of on particular segment of the city kept coming up repeatedly. The neighborhood of Molenbeek has long been known as a breeding ground for terrorists and a virtual “no go” sector for the cops, no matter what other European leaders say. CNN terrorism analysts this morning were bemoaning the fact that previous efforts to locate suspects in...

    Sen. Ted Cruz blamed an "extreme strain of Islam" for Tuesday's terrorist attacks in Brussels, which saw at least 34 killed and 170 injured after two explosions hit the Belgian capital. Cruz also argued in a statement that the attacks are not "isolated incidents." The two attacks took place outside of the Brussels airport and the Maelbeek metro station near the European Union less than a week after Salah Abdesalah, the terrorist behind the Paris attacks in November, was captured.

    Donald Trump was the clear favorite in today’s winner-take-all Arizona primary, even before the Brussels terrorist attacks. The immigration issue and the flood of early voters favors him, as does the fact that some of those early voters will have cast ballots for Marco Rubio before he dropped out last Tuesday night. If they had known Rubio would no longer be a candidate, many of those voters might have gone with Cruz. But polls have been tricky and often erratic this year (think Michigan and the surprise win of Bernie Sanders). For example, the latest poll showing a 14 point...

From Right Wing News: Bomba attacks terrorized the capital of Belgium this morning, and it’s become reminder to some of the comments Trump has made about Brussels in the the recent past.
