    No-go zones — elitist media and politicians claim they don’t exist. But they’d better tell that to Da’esh (ISIS), which, in a recently uncovered manifesto, brags that it has been using Western refugee programs to sneak terrorists into Europe with the aim of creating no-go zones. Perhaps even better described as Sharia-dominant mini-caliphates, Da’esh’s intent is to use the areas as bases from which to launch attacks such as the November 13 Paris massacre and the jihadist killings in San Bernardino yesterday

    RIVERSIDE, Calif. - The regulars did not take it seriously when Enrique Marquez mused about terrorism at Morgan's Tavern, a dank dive bar where the bespectacled 24-year-old hauled ice, cleaned bathrooms and checked ID's at the door. After a few drinks, he would just start talking - about his money woes, trying to lose weight, wanting to join the Navy. News reports about terror were just fodder for more bar talk. "He would say stuff like: 'There's so much going on. There's so many sleeper cells, so many people just waiting. When it happens, it's going to be big. Watch,'...

    Libyan dictator Moammar Gadhafi provided al-Qaida with chemical and biological weapons of mass destruction before changing heart and agreeing to destroy his arms program, Joseph Farah's G2 Bulletin has learned. Libyan intelligence chief Musa Kussa told U.S. and UK spy agencies that tens of thousands of weapons had been produced at 10 secret sites in the country. Kussa has named hundreds of what he termed "sleeper" al-Qaida agents in Britain and the U.S. Gadhafi's dramatic turnaround has earned him a future meeting with British Prime Minister Tony Blair and President Bush.

    INGAPORE, Jan. 25 Shortly after the United States began bombing Afghanistan on Oct. 7, a 30-year- old Indonesian traveling on a false Filipino passport slipped into this tightly controlled city-state carrying a plan to strike back at America. His mission, investigators say, was to activate a "sleeper cell" of Islamic militants who had long been waiting for a call from Al Qaeda's leaders in Afghanistan. This group, which had been loosely organized for eight years, began planning to blow up the embassies of the United States, Israel, Australia and Britain, the investigators say. The plot was foiled when 13 ...

    CNN's sudden "discovery" of Benghazi ("Look!

These "sleepers" -- actually liberal Democrat sympathizers -- lie in wait until an event deeply threatens one of their cherished liberal figureheads, quite often Hillary Clinton, and/or when an event comes just a leeeetle too close to disclosing what a nest of incompetent vipers the Democrat "leadership" really is, from Obama on down.

    Searching old newspapers is one of my favorite pastimes, and I have tried to use them many times to shed light on current events - or to inform readers about how the past is prologue to our very interesting present-day quandaries. Recently, I came across a syndicated column from November 1979 that seemed to point 30 years into the future toward an obscure campaign issue that arose briefly in the 2008 presidential campaign. Though by no means definitive, it provides an interesting insight, at least, into how Chicago politics intersected with the black power movement and Middle Eastern money at...

    A careful audit of combat support and reconstruction contracts reveals that at least $360 million in US tax dollars has gone to fund the Taliban and terrorist operations in Afghanistan. Corrupt contractors and subcontractors are responsible for the diversion of funds which have surely resulted in harm to soldiers and civilians throughout the region. LOS ANGELES (Catholic Online) - The losses demonstrate one of the challenges the US faces in Afghanistan, specifically, rampant corruption. Private Afghan corporations are providing many support services to the US and NATO forces and are collecting payments from the military for their services. However, the...

Even though State "has an independent obligation to evaluate a non-US person's suitability for entry into the US," the senators noted, it rubber-stamped a visa for Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab, the Nigerian crotch bomber. In fact, our government is admitting "guests" from the highest terror-risk nations as if 9/11 never happened and 19 Mideast terrorists never infiltrated the United States on easily...

Nationally, DeLay is the top election fundraiser among House...

"However, their capability to do so is unclear, particularly in regard to 'spectacular' operations.
