    WASHINGTON – The danger posed by ISIS to Americans has come to the homeland for Rep. Michele Bachmann, R-Minn., and a national publication may be making the ominous threat even worse. Politico has reported federal officials are taking an online threat to the congresswoman so seriously she in now under 24-hour protection by a security detail. However, Politico may be adding fuel to the fire by incorrectly reporting that the congresswoman had called on President Obama to declare war on Islam. “Bachmann has been publicly critical of not only ISIL, but also Islam, calling on President Obama to declare war...

    House Speaker John Boehner has denounced any potential White House effort to close the Guantanamo Bay prison facility, saying that such a move is "dangerous," could result in terrorists being relocated into the United States and that overriding Congress is another example of the Obama administration’s “legacy of lawlessness.” Boehner made the statement Friday, following a Wall Street Journal story stating the White House is “drafting options” that would allow Obama to close the detention facility in Cuba by overriding congressional restrictions on bringing detainees into the U.S. The White House has responded to the story, reportedly based on information...

    A Dutch Catholic school called off a one-day trip to Paris for 400 students on Friday because of fears of an attack by Islamic militants in the French capital's metro, although French officials have cited no evidence of a specific threat. The graduate students from the southern Dutch town of Etten-Leur had been set to leave on Friday but the school said in a statement that the trip had been cancelled as a precaution after media reports about possible militant violence in France. Iraqi Prime Minister Haidar al-Abadi said last month he had credible intelligence that networks affiliated with Islamic...

The terror level has been set at medium on the National Terrorism Public Alert System since the system was introduced in 2003.

    IF Australia is to raise the terror threat level from medium to high, it should do it quickly. Waiting for further evidence that jihadists might strike on Australian soil may be to invite disaster. Not only law-abiding Australians would be concerned at the implications of an increased level of alertness, so too any extremists plotting a domestic attack. The Herald Sun has reported on the participation of Australian terrorist Khaled Sharrouf in beheadings and executions in the Middle East. Sharrouf fled to Syria on his brother’s passport after being jailed for terrorist activities in Australia. He was part of a...

"We're going to have to be vigilant generally. Right now the problem with ISIS is the fact that they're destabilizing the country," Obama said, using a common acronym for the group.

They flagrantly flout the law, while simultaneously turning it into a weapon against political opponents, use government agencies to target innocent Americans, attempt to create legal voters through amnesty, and undermine voter integrity measures to facilitate vote fraud, while denying it even exists. In short, they are corrupting the entire process. Thus, it is fitting to begin this report by recounting a story of deliberate, blatant official voter fraud.

    If a 9.0 earthquake were to strike along California's sparsely populated North Coast, it would have a catastrophic ripple effect. A giant tsunami created by the quake would wash away coastal towns, destroy U.S. 101 and cause $70 billion in damage over a large swath of the Pacific coast. More than 100 bridges would be lost, power lines toppled and coastal towns isolated. Residents would have as few as 15 minutes notice to flee to higher ground, and as many as 10,000 would perish. For years, scientists believed the largest earthquake the area could produce was magnitude 7.5. But scientists...

    There is a “moderate” world leader who married his cousin when she was only 14, in a country where some in the media do not even know her name. This man’s wife doesn’t participate in open society. His country arrests and abuses people of different religions than the country’s majority. He describes a nearby democracy as “an occupier and usurper government” that “does injustice to the people of the region, and has brought instability to the region, with its warmongering policies.” Under the rule of this new “moderate” leader, his country continues to enrich uranium, and continues to pursue nuclear...

    RICHMOND — High-powered Terry McAuliffe supporters made a furious attempt over the weekend to reverse a Washington area business group’s endorsement of Republican Ken Cuccinelli II for governor, with state legislators warning that “doors will be closed” to the group if it sticks by its choice. The pressure exerted on the Northern Virginia Technology Council’s political arm, Tech PAC, by a U.S. senator, a Republican lieutenant governor at odds with Cuccinelli and several others suggests that McAuliffe’s campaign is worried that a Cuccinelli endorsement could undermine the central premise of the Democrat’s campaign — that he, an entrepreneur who started...

    The senator steals a march on potential 2016 rivals. The early dynamics of the 2016 Republican presidential-primary contest were jolted on the morning of Friday, July 19, in a ballroom on the third floor of the Marriott hotel in downtown Des Moines. It was there, in front of coffee-sipping pastors, that Senator Ted Cruz of Texas wowed the kingmakers of the Iowa caucuses for the first time. Without notes and ignoring the podium, he roamed the carpeted dais for nearly an hour, quoting Scripture and musing about the Democrats and their occasional affinity for Satan. The reception was rapturous. Many...

    Intelligence regarding al Qaeda plans to attack U.S. embassies, officials, and interests last Sunday was known for months by U.S. intelligence agencies but was used only recently to trigger the closure of embassies and issuance of public warnings of impending attacks. Al Qaeda “chatter” about coming terrorist operations, mainly against 22 U.S. embassies and consulates, and threats to attack or bomb officials in the Middle East and elsewhere was widely reported in classified intelligence reports over several months. The report said an attack was planned for Sunday, although no attack was carried out. The intelligence was based on electronic surveillance...

    Pressed about President Obama’s campaign promises that Osama bin Laden’s death signaled the end of al-Qaeda, in contrast with the threats from al-Qaeda against embassies across the globe this week, Jay Carney assured reporters that al-Qaeda’s “core” has been “decimated,” but admitted that the terrorist group and its affilliates still present a serious threat. “I think it’s indisputable that the elimination of Osama bin Laden was a major accomplishment in the effort against al-Qaeda,” Carney said at the White House press briefing this afternoon. “But nobody should be under any illusion that that threat still exists [sic].”
