    The National Police Association endorses Ted Cruz for President, 2016. Senator Ted Cruz recognizes that “Police are under assault right now at an unprecedented level.” Cruz went on the record in support of law enforcement officers across the country. “The violence we’re seeing directed against law enforcement is a direct manifestation of the harsh rhetoric and the vilification of police officers and law enforcement that sadly has come all the way from the top,” Cruz said.

    Seven police commandoes have been killed in a bomb and gun attack by communist rebels in the northern Philippines, officials say. Rebels from the New People's Army (NPA) ambushed the group as they made their way to a medical exam. Their truck was hit by an explosion, after which the militants opened fire, police said. Seven other commandoes were also injured in the attack. The incident took place near Allacapan, 400km (250 miles) north of Manila. Those who died were members of an elite counter-insurgency police unit, reports said. The NPA has been fighting for a communist state for more...

    You hear him at the end of nearly every NPR broadcast. The host wraps up the news. And then on comes the mystery voice, reading the underwriting credits. The voice utters authoritarian decrees, postulating that "Silk is soy" or asserting that "ADM" is "supermarket to the world." And then there's the payoff line, as the steady elocution of the mystery voice waxes ever so slightly on a solitary word. "This is NPR. National Public Radio." If Rep. Doug Lamborn (R-CO) gets his way in the House of Representatives today, the mystery voice may have to alter his patter. "I want...

    Actually, they're getting tough in a lot of places. They proved very tough for Hamas operatives in the Eastern Mediterranean last weekend. They were tough in poor Balto as well, with seven people shot to death. (Baltimore should be one of the jewels of the East Coast, but of course, it's no such thing. I wonder who's been running the place the last century.) It was nearly as tough in Chicago, with twelve shot and three dead. But when has there ever been good news from the Windy City? But none of these, however bad they may be, have the...

    MANILA, Philippines – Philippine soldiers killed seven communist rebels in a clash north of Manila on Thursday, as government troops pressed their campaign to end the 40-year-old insurgency this year, an army spokesman said. Troops encountered about 30 New People's Army guerrillas in Bulacan province, triggering an hourlong battle that left seven dead, one of the highest fatalities among the rebels in recent weeks, Lt. Col. Arnulfo Burgos said. Rebel spokesmen could not be immediately reached for comment.

    From the cheap seats, it sure does look like the President of the United States is using the powers of the Executive to coordinate with Andy Stern to organize a series of protests entitled “Showdown In America.” National People’s Action ...NPA, together with SEIU and the AFL-CIO, is organizing a series of angry marches against Wall Street and capitalism. NPA is a very dangerous and radical group that isn’t shy about its radical philosophy. NPA wrote the dreaded Community Reinvestment Act which community organizers like Barack Obama used to shake down banks. It turns out that President Obama is even...

    MANILA, Philippines (Mindanao Examiner / August 27, 2008) – The Philippine Army on Wednesday confirmed government reports that Muslim rebels and have forged an alliance with communist insurgents in Mindanao, where security forces are battling the guerillas. Colonel Daniel Lucero, commander of the Army’s Civil-Military Operations, said the Moro Islamic Liberation Front and the outlawed New People’s Army have forged a formal alliance as early as in 1999. “In fact, an informal agreement has been in existence since the late 1980’s. The formal link between the NDF, represented by the Mindanao Commission, and the MILF was forged in 1999. The...

    The Moro Islamic Liberation Front has forced about 1,200 Christian farmers to flee from a village in the southern province of Mindanao. This is confirmed by the local police, who withdrew from the area in order to avoid an armed conflict with the rebels. This situation deteriorated last week, when Malaysia withdrew its mediators from the province, the stronghold of the Muslim Filipinos. Garcia, a local farmer, recounts: "The Islamic Front arrived suddenly and claimed their forefathers owned the land we are farming, and at gunpoint told us to leave. Police were not allowed entry, so they backed off to...

    SADDAM HUSSEIN'S REGIME PROVIDED FINANCIAL support to Abu Sayyaf, the al Qaeda-linked jihadist group founded by Osama bin Laden's brother-in-law in the Philippines in the late 1990s, according to documents captured in postwar Iraq. An eight-page fax dated June 6, 2001, and sent from the Iraqi ambassador in Manila to the Ministry of Foreign Affairs in Baghdad, provides an update on Abu Sayyaf kidnappings and indicates that the Iraqi regime was providing the group with money to purchase weapons. The Iraqi regime suspended its support--temporarily, it seems--after high-profile kidnappings, including of Americans, focused international attention on the terrorist group. The...

    SOUTHERN LUZON, Philippines, April 29 (Reuters) - From his coconut leaf hut deep in the forest, Gregorio Rosal, one of the Philippine's most-wanted men, smiles in admiration at the recent success of Nepal's Maoist rebels. "Their advance has been inspiring," the chief spokesman for the communist insurgent New People's Army (NPA) told Reuters. "The protracted people's war that Mao practiced in China." Nepal's rebels loosely aligned themselves with mainstream political parties and forced the autocratic king to cede power this week. The NPA, waging the world's longest-communist insurgency, wants a similar tie-up with disgruntled soldiers and political opposition groups to...

    ISLAMABAD, Pakistan (AP) — Pakistan said Thursday it had taken all "appropriate action" to break up the underground nuclear network run by its former chief nuclear scientist Abdul Qadeer Khan. Foreign Minister Khursheed Kasuri made the remarks one day after a British newspaper alleged Khan's network may still be in operation. The Guardian report cited an unidentified European Union source. "Pakistan is very sorry and is very upset and has taken all appropriate action in dismantling the underground network," Kasuri said. "Dr. A.Q. Khan has fallen from the high pedestal that he had," he said, adding that Khan had...

    LUCENA CITY, Quezon -- Departing from their usual relatively open celebration, communist cadres and members of the New People's Army marked the 37th founding anniversary of the Communist Party of the Philippines (CPP) yesterday amid tight security around guerrilla camps and vigilance against possible attacks. They also aired a warning of possible assaults on American troops in the country and threatening attacks against the government. In a statement, the CPP criticized the US military for increasing intervention in the Philippines and urged militants to take steps to deter the US from "further plundering" the country. It called on its armed...

    HACIENDA LUISITA, PHILIPPINES – Out beyond the picket line and the shuttered mill, the sugar fields of this vast plantation stretch to the horizon. To Rene Tua, a union activist whose father and grandfather also toiled on this land, it's a bittersweet vision. "I don't think it's fair for one family to own such a large piece of land. The farmers are the original owners ... and they should be given their land back," he says. The mill fell silent last year after unionists rejected a pay offer and led nearly 6,000 workers on strike. A week later, several men...

    PHILADELPHIA -- Supporters of a proposed law that would benefit people who arrived in the United States illegally as children said Sunday that it would help more immigrants go on to get college degrees and contribute more to society. During a rally held as part of the annual convention of a national Hispanic civil-rights group, people spoke out in support of the Development, Relief and Education for Alien Minors Act. The proposal, known as the DREAM Act, would give undocumented youth the chance to become legal U.S. residents and possibly help them get in-state college tuition. "We are not asking...

He wants them to have the opportunity to become citizens and get a good college education. Dodd talked about his proposed "Dream Act" during a rally in Philadelphia Sunday, but critics of the proposal say it only rewards illegal behavior. The proposal would only apply to children who arrived before they turned 16 and have been in the U.S. for five years. Supporters say the law is necessary because children shouldn't be punished for their parents decision to...
