    Gerry Adams has stated that he still believes violence and the use of “armed actions” can still be justified to reach political aims — in certain circumstances. The former Sinn Féin president gave an interview to Hamburg-based newspaper Der Spiegel (The Mirror) reflecting on The Troubles, strife in Northern Ireland, and his stance on an array of issues including the use of violence. In the interview, which was conducted in the run up to the 20th anniversary of the Good Friday Agreement — April 10th — Adams vehemently denied every shooting anyone during The Troubles or being a member of...
  • Trump To CIA: Why Didn’t You Blow Up That Jihadi While He Was At Home With His Family?

    I don’t know why some people (mostly in the media) seem surprised. This is the counterterrorism equivalent of our erupting trade war with China in the sense that, however controversial and foolhardy the policy may be, POTUS made his support for it perfectly plain during the campaign. And I don’t mean in some niche radio interview at the time that maybe 100,000 people listened to. I mean onstage at a Republican primary debate aired on Fox News. His famous comment about getting the military to obey illegal orders was inspired by this very subject. Remember? Turns out when he...

    President Trump reportedly asked the CIA why it waited until a terror target’s family left the building before launching a drone missile strike against him. “Why did you wait?” the president asked, according to the Washington Post, after being shown a video of an earlier strike in Syria by the ISIS-fighting spooks. The CIA’s head of drone operations told the commander-in-chief that the agency’s goal was to minimize civilian casualties, an explanation that left Trump “unimpressed,” the paper reported. On the campaign trail, then-candidate Trump once said that the US should kill not just terrorists, but their wives, children and...

  • FBI Can’t Find Motive of Muslim Who Drove Burning Minivan Onto Travis Air Force Base

    “Motive a mystery in car explosion at Travis Air Force Base” was the Los Angeles Times headline, and this one is indeed a real mystery. A Muslim named Hafiz Kazi, according to the Times, “drove a burning minivan filled with propane and gas tanks into the front gate of Travis Air Force Base in Northern California.” After scrutinizing all the evidence closely, the FBI just can’t figure out what could possibly have been Kazi’s motive. And that in a nutshell shows what’s wrong with today’s FBI. Sean Ragan, FBI special agent in charge of the Sacramento field office, stated: “We...

If true, it's time to grab the tin foil hats because this is a clear case of FBI involvement in FALSE FLAGS as many FReepers believe to be the case with other massacres such as Las...

  • BREAKING: Car-Ramming Terrorist Attack in Acre Leaves Four Injured

    Earlier this morning, an Arab-Israeli driver ran over and lightly-to-moderately wounded two soldiers, a border policeman and a pedestrian in the northern Israeli city of Acre, Israeli police said. After an initial investigation, the police confirmed that the driver’s intention was nationalistic and therefore classified as a terror attack. The terrorist was able to crash his car into Israelis at 2 separate locations before being neutralized. The Arab-Israeli driver, 51 from northern Israel, ran over a soldier near the city market, before proceeding toward the train station where he plowed his vehicle into more victims, according to Ynet News.

He had been hospitalized in Gaza until his death, according to the Jerusalem Post.
  • Trump's Exec Order Protecting the US From Foreign Terrorist Entry; Initial Section 11 Report

    On March 6, 2017, President Donald J. Trump issued Executive Order 13780, Protecting the Nation from Foreign Terrorist Entry into the United States, which declared that “it is the policy of the United States to protect its citizens from terrorist attacks, including those committed by foreign nationals,” and directed a series of actions to enhance the security of the American people. The actions directed by Executive Order 13780 have—among other things—raised the baseline for the vetting and screening of foreign nationals, improved our ability to prevent the entry of malicious actors, and enhanced the security of the American people.

    Kentucky Sen. Rand Paul (R) praised President Trump on Monday for his tweet calling for an end to aid to Pakistan, telling Trump he "couldn't agree more" with Trump's assertion that the country shelters terrorists on the run from U.S. forces. In a tweet Monday afternoon, Paul responded to Trump's first tweet of 2018 in which the president sharply criticized Pakistan's government. "I couldn’t agree more. I’ve been fighting to end aid to Pakistan for years and will again lead the charge in the Senate. Let’s make this happen @realDonaldTrump," Paul tweeted. I couldn’t agree more. I’ve been fighting to...

    Hamas leader Mahmoud Al-Zahar says the group will shut down the U.S. embassy in Israel once it “liberates Palestine”. Senior Hamas leader Mahmoud Al-Zahar recently threatened that the terrorist group will shut down the U.S. embassy in Israel once it “liberates Palestine”. In an interview on Al-Jazeera on December 17, which was translated by the Middle East Media Research Institute (MEMRI), the Hamas leader also made clear that the group "would not relinquish a single gun, not even a single bullet." “Annihilation will be the fate not only of the Jews, but also of their helpers and of the people...

    Authorities have arrested a 26-year-old man connected to the Islamic State (ISIS) who was allegedly plotting a terrorist attack in San Francisco over the Christmas holiday. The FBI reports that they arrested Everitt Aaron Jameson, a truck driver from Modesto, California. He referred to himself as Abdallah adu Everitt ibn Gordon. He is charged specifically with attempting to supply support to a foreign terrorist organization and he has posted pro-ISIS and pro-terrorist posts on Facebook. His intended target was San Francisco’s famous Pier 39. Jameson was apparently unknowingly chatting with an undercover FBI agent and was arrested earlier this week. A search...

    Riyad al-Malki, the Palestinian Authority (PA) official in charge of foreign affairs, on Wednesday accused Washington of "threatening" member countries of the UN General Assembly ahead of a vote on rejecting President Donald Trump’s decision to recognize Jerusalem as Israel's capital. Malki said, according to the AFP news agency, that American officials were "committing another mistake when they have distributed this famous letter trying to threaten countries, (and) threaten their sovereign decision to choose how to vote." He was speaking at a press conference with Turkish Foreign Ministry Mevlut Cavusoglu in Istanbul, shortly before both men left for New York....
