    FBI agents knew the gunman behind the deadliest mass shooting in modern U.S. history left behind big caches of guns, ammunition and explosives when they sought warrants to search his properties and online accounts, according to court documents released Friday. A U.S. judge in Nevada unsealed the documents showing some of what federal agents learned about Stephen Paddock in the week after the Las Vegas shooting. Prosecutors didn't oppose the request from media organizations including The Associated Press to release affidavits that were filed to get search warrants.

    The most popular name for newborn boys in St. Cloud is now Henry. But closing fast is a name that reflects the central Minnesota city’s growing diversity — Mohamed. For the first time, Mohamed cracked the most popular boys’ names in 2017 at the St. Cloud Hospital, which delivers nearly 3,000 babies a year. Sixteen newborn boys went home from the hospital last year with the name Mohamed, which tied with Liam for second place. Eighteen baby boys delivered at the hospital were named Henry. And for the first time, Salma, an Arabic name, cracked the top 10 list of...
  • Is the heroin epidemic an act of terrorism

    Usually selling drugs is all about money. Drug dealers don’t care who they hurt just as long as they have a strong cash flow. One would think the the heroin epidemic is a case in point. Looking at the data I find that over the past 15 years the supply of heroin has almost doubled. Over the past 20 years the price of heroin has fallen more than 50%. I also notice that Hezbollah has become a major drug trafficker and that it uses its profits for weapons. Now this is all bad enough but a thought occurred to me...

    A skeletal portrait of the Sterling, Va., man federal authorities have accused of obstructing a terrorism investigation began to come into focus on Monday — that of a directionless youth who converted to Islam at the end of high school, married a significantly older Muslim woman, had a child who died as an infant, and became increasingly religious until an arrest Friday that allegedly included him destroying a computer thumb drive that authorities suspect may have contained evidence of terrorism-related activity. In the months before that arrest, court filings allege, Sean Andrew Duncan, 21, who will appear in federal court...

The city is spending $50 million on protective measures including the installation of 1,500 metal barriers, or bollards, in key locations around the city, Mayor Bill de Blasio said Tuesday.

    For Democrats, any excuse to open the immigration floodgates is good. Take Hillary’s failed VP running mate, Sen. Tim Kaine, and his response to the Iran protests. Of all the ways the United States could support the protesters, what pops into Kaine’s cranium? Yup, as Kaine tweeted [emphasis added]: “Big step US could take to support democracy movement in Iran: Drop the Iranian travel ban.” Get the rest of the story and view the video here.

    On Sunday evening, President Donald J. Trump took to Twitter to slam the Iranian government and to remind the world that the Islamic Republic is the world’s biggest state sponsor of terrorism, something President Obama's State Department reported in 2016.  Iran, the Number One State of Sponsored Terror with numerous violations of Human Rights occurring on an hourly basis, has now closed down the Internet so that peaceful demonstrators cannot communicate. Not good!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) December 31, 2017 Indeed, President Trump is correct. A 2016 State Department annual report said Iran “remained the foremost state sponsor of terrorism...

    British Major General Rialls, 1000 British Regulars and 400 Indian allies cross the Niagara River. They attack 2100 New York State Militia under the command of Major General Hall. After a short fight, the militia withdraws (by some accounts run). The British troops put the torch to the villages of Buffalo and Black Rock, burning all but 4 out of 150 buildings. Also burned are 4 ships tied up there. The British and their Indian allies withdraw to Canada.

    CAIRO (Reuters) - A gunman killed at least 11 people on Friday in attacks on a Coptic Orthodox church and a Christian-owned shop near Cairo before he was wounded and arrested, the Egyptian interior ministry and church officials said. Islamic State claimed responsibility for the attacks, in a statement carried out by its Amaq news agency, though it provided no evidence for the claim. [snip] The Coptic Church said the gunman first shot at a Christian-owned shop 4 km (3 miles) away, killing two people, before proceeding to the Mar Mina church in the southern Cairo suburb of Helwan.

    More of mother Merkel’s legacy. Achtung! Breitbart, December 24, 2017: Germany’s judicial system is groaning under the strain of an explosion in terror cases since Chancellor Angela Merkel opened the door to unlimited numbers of migrants in 2015. The German Attorney-General opened a shocking 1,200 terror cases in 2017, of which around 1,000 were related to radical Islamic terrorism, Tagesschau reports. This represents a fivefold increase on 2016, when the figure stood at around 250 — with roughly 200 cases being related to radical Islam. Sven Rebehn, the head of the German association of judges, has warned that the...

    The Department of Homeland Security said chain migration is the common element in two cases allegedly tied to terrorism activities, according to a statement released Saturday. In the statement on Twitter, Acting Press Secretary Tyler Houlton said DHS “can confirm the suspect involved in a terror attack in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, and another suspect arrested on terror-related money laundering charges were both beneficiaries of extended family chain migration.” The memo referred to Ahmed Aminamin El-Mofty, 51, who it said was a naturalized U.S. citizen admitted to the U.S. from Egypt on a family-based visa. El-Mofty went on a shooting spree Friday...

    ...Even if Bergdahl was not a deserter, the trade would have been a bad deal. As Investor’s Business Daily noted in an editorial charging “Obama Gave Material Assistance To Our Taliban Enemy,” President Obama committed a federal crime by trading Taliban leaders for Bergdahl: As former congressman and Afghanistan veteran Allen West points out, President Obama signed into law only months ago the National Defense Authorization Act, which makes it a crime to offer or provide any material support to terrorist groups. It makes no exception as to who and under which circumstances. The Taliban is considered a non-state terrorist...

    They wanted him dead. For years, a clandestine U.S. intelligence team had tracked a man they knew was high in the leadership of al Qaeda — an operative some believed had a hand in plotting the gruesome 2009 suicide attack in Afghanistan that killed seven CIA officers. Their pursuit was personal, and by early 2014, according to a source directly involved in the operation, the agency had the target under tight drone surveillance. “We literally had a bead on this guy’s head and just needed authorization from Washington to pull the trigger,” said the source. Then something unexpected happened. While...

    The Hellenic Food Authority (EFET) on Tuesday warned consumers to avoid certain supermarket products after claims on an anarchist website that they had intentionally been contaminated with hydrochloric acid. The products concerned are plastic 1.5-liter bottles of Coca-Cola and Coca-Cola Light, Yfantis luncheon meat (“pariza”) in 500- and 350-gram packages, and blue 1-liter cartons of fresh milk from Delta. The products are being withdrawn from shelves by the companies as a precautionary measure. The move comes after a group calling itself Green Nemesis-Praxis 3 made the claim that the items had been contaminated. Similar incidents occurred before Christmas last year...

    Former President Barack Obama’s administration derailed efforts by the FBI and Drug Enforcement Administration to prosecute a Hezbollah crime syndicate over fears it would disrupt efforts to sign a nuclear deal with the Islamic Republic of Iran, Politico reports. The Obama administration’s efforts included using elements of executive power like the Department of Justice and Department of State to quash efforts by law enforcement to drastically reign in Hezbollah operations. “They serially ripped apart this entire effort that was very well supported and resourced, and it was done from the top down,” an analyst on the law enforcement effort told...

    Shariah Finance Watch ^ | 18 December 17 | Christopher Holton
    The issue of zakat is one that is central to the concerns about Shariah-compliant finance, but concerns about zakat should extend far beyond Shariah finance alone. Zakat is a real threat because it is doctrinal in Islam and no figure, organization or body in Islam has the authority to change it. But why is it a threat? Because it is a main funding source for jihad. We have detailed this extensively on SFW for years, but periodically we feel it necessary to reinforce and update our educational outreach on zakat. What prompted this latest report was an article we came...

    An ambitious U.S. task force targeting Hezbollah's billion-dollar criminal enterprise ran headlong into the White House's desire for a nuclear deal with Iran. How Hezbollah turned to trafficking cocaine and laundering money through used cars to finance its expansion. In its determination to secure a nuclear deal with Iran, the Obama administration derailed an ambitious law enforcement campaign targeting drug trafficking by the Iranian-backed terrorist group Hezbollah, even as it was funneling cocaine into the United States, according to a POLITICO investigation.
