    Three men carrying false identification were denied access to the federal courthouse in downtown Miami Thursday. They attempted to enter at multiple vehicle check-points until security guards recognized one of the men and immediately contacted deputies from the U.S. Marshals Service. The men used badges that resembled those from three different federal agencies, including a U.S. Marshal badge, but within seconds of examining the badges, security guards knew they were fraudulent. Once the men were detained, officers searched their vehicle and discovered other fraudulent law enforcement clothing. One man was arrested and could face charges by the U.S. Attorney’s Office,...

    Following the riots that cancelled the final event of MILO’s “Dangerous Faggot Tour,” The Chancellor of UC Berkeley has released a statement claiming that rather than being caused by students, they were started by “armed individuals in ‘ninja-like’ uniforms using “paramilitary tactics.” The event was cancelled after left-wing rioters, who the university claim were not students, smashed ATMs and bank windows, looted a Starbucks, beat Trump supporters, pepper sprayed innocent individuals, set fires in the street, and sprayed the words “Kill Trump” on storefronts. Coverage of the riots spread across the world, as people watched on in horror at a...

    Truncated title. Full title: Police stumped over motive of mall attacker who spoke of ‘Allah’ and asked victims if they were Muslim before attacking them OK, I get it. Police don’t want to jump to conclusions in high profile cases. But can police authorities please stop insulting the public when a Muslim starts attacking random strangers while yelling about Allah? The latest example of studied ignorance comes from St. Cloud, Minnesota, the thriving metropolis of Central Minnesota. From the St. Cloud Times: Eight people were injured and the suspect died at Crossroads Center on Saturday after an attack reported about...

    A Department of Defense official tells CNN's Barbara Starr that a search of the hotel room found Pfc. Naser Jason Abdo had enough to make two bombs. The ingredients included gunpowder, shotgun shells, a pressure cooker, 18 pounds of sugar used to enhance the explosion and Christmas lights to be used as a timer. At the surplus store Abdo bought a uniform and asked to have Fort Hood patches sewn on.

    A coalition of lawmakers and civil rights groups has a message for the National Park Service: your uniforms and vehicles are “very threatening” to Latinos. Maite Arce of the Hispanic Access Foundation delivered the “really tough” message during a press conference on Thursday: “It’s such a shame that something as simple as the uniform and it’s similarity to the border patrol’s uniform — in the coloring — could be very threatening to certain segments of the Latino population. So a discussion about that is going to be really tough.” The coalition made multiple recommendations to the Park Service, including: Assess...

    These Colors, Don’t Ruin: Team USA goes incognito by Daniel Clark The United States national soccer team put on a dismal performance in a recent 2-0 loss in Guatemala, during which they were unfocused and incohesive, and generally very much unlike themselves. You might not have even known that the USA was playing if the graphics on your screen hadn't told you so, because the players were not wearing our national colors. Instead, they wore black jerseys with patches of blue and burgundy on the shoulders. If you didn't know better, you’d have thought the Guatemalans were playing against some...

    Officers seized thousands of uniforms and other military gear on the way to terror groups Isis and al-Nusra Front. Spain's National Police reported on Thursday that officers had intercepted 20,000 uniforms and other military gear that were being sent to terror groups Isis and al-Nusra Front - the Syrian branch of al-Qaeda. "With nearly 20,000 uniforms and military accessories seized, they would have been able to equip an entire army, which would be perfectly prepared to enter combat in any of the centres of conflict where terrorist jihadist organizations operate in the world," the Interior Ministry reported on Thursday. Police...

    If there's a silver lining to the havoc wreaked by Napoleon Bonaparte on Europe during the early 19th Century, it's that menswear today would look considerably different without it. The main thrust of the Napoleonic Wars of 1803 to 1815 may have been to advance the First French Empire, but the undercard was all about military style. The monarchs of France, Russia, England, and Prussia were obsessed with how their soldiers dressed. It was fashion week on steroids, the legacy of which can still be seen in the wardrobes of men today, not to mention in the continuing influence of...

Sending the wearing of military uniforms underground in the wake of last week’s horrific terrorist attacks on soldiers calls for a new battle cry from the courageous Swift Boat veterans. Canada Free Press suggests: ‘Wear Them, Don’t Hide Them’; ‘Don’t Let the Terrorists Make You a John Kerry.’

    This is a horrible idea, as Col. West points out. It undermines uniformity and conformity, which is fine for civilians but absolutely antithetical to to military philosophy. There are also more practical concerns. A Marine is going to regret his religious beard about ten seconds after hearing the words "gas, gas, gas!" Just try and get a seal on that mask with a religious beard or piercings. There is a very real need for uniformity in the ranks. This has been true since man began forming armies. As Col. West points out, this sort of policy change would be a...

    The Navy Jack is the ‘don’t tread on me’ flag, one that has earned a revered place in America’s naval history and a beloved place in sailor’s hearts, through its use for over two centuries. This symbol of America’s naval ferocity has spanned our country’s entire existence, flying from the masts of the Continental Navy during the war of independence, to today’s War on Terror. In fact, an amendment to the Navy code called SECNAV Instruction 10520.6 clearly states that as of 31 May 2002 all ships are to fly the flag throughout the duration of the War on Terror....
