    How Sergeant-at-Arms hid behind same pillar as Canada gunman, then dived on the floor and shot him dead: Dramatic new details have emerged of how the hero Sergeant-at-Arms dove onto the floor from behind a pillar and shot the Muslim convert who attacked the Canadian parliament.

    S&W 5946 I would give long odds that it was a Smith and Wesson 5946 in 9mm.   They come with 15 round magazines.   I doubt that the RCMP used the politically correct 10 rounders. The 3953, above, is also issued, but it is more likely he had the 5946. The picture is from a discussion of the RCMP pistols on defensivecarry.com. Another source confirms that the Smith is the choice of the RCMP.  From Silvercore Firerams Training, BC(pdf): Smith & Wesson 5946 - The Side Arm of the RCMP Manufactured 1990 - 1999 A double-action-only (DAO) variant...

    WASHINGTON - In the Pentagon's newly expanded Special Operations office Assistant Defense Secretary Michael Vickers is working to implement the US military's highest-priority plan: a global campaign against terrorism that reaches far beyond Iraq and Afghanistan. The wide-ranging plan details the targeting of Al Qaeda-affiliated networks around the world and explores how the United States should retaliate in case of another major terrorist attack. The most critical aspect of the plan, Vickers said in a recent interview, involves US Special Operations forces working through foreign partners to uproot and fight terrorist groups. Vickers's job also spans the modernization of nuclear...

    With Friends Like These: CAIR Reaches Out for a Setup M. Zuhdi Jasser December 7, 2007 It has been a while since I have paid much attention to the antics of local leading Islamists here in Phoenix. But last month’s fundraiser on November 3rd for the local chapter of the Council on American Islamic Relations-Arizona demonstrated the deep-seated pathology and duplicity of this so-called “leading American Muslim civil rights organization.” It appears that staging opportunities to embarrass the American justice system and its leadership is also turning into the modus operandi for this self-described “representative of Arizona Muslims.” Their recent...

    Why We Are Publishing This Article by David HorowitzThe article you are about to read is the most disturbing that we at frontpagemag.com have ever published. As an Internet magazine, with a wide circulation, we have been in the forefront of the effort to expose the radical Fifth Column in this country, whose agendas are at odds with the nation’s security, and whose purposes are hostile to its own. In his first address to Congress after 9/11, the President noted that we are facing the same totalitarian enemies we faced in the preceding century. It is not surprising that their...

    Portrait of a WahhabiBy Stephen Schwartz FrontPageMagazine.com | June 30, 2003 On Thursday, June 26, I testified before the U.S. Senate Subcommittee on Terrorism, Technology and Homeland Security, chaired by Sen. Jon Kyl (R-Ariz).  My topic was “Wahhabism and Islam in the U.S.”  I outlined the outrageous degree to which Saudi-funded Wahhabi extremists, who are supporters of terrorism, have come to dominate Islam in the U.S. My testimony was not greeted with enthusiasm by James Zogby, the phony civil rights leader who heads the “Arab American Institute." Zogby, a Lebanese Christian once known for his moderate camouflage on Israel, but...

    Amen for the female pastor By David Waters waters@gomemphis.com July 6, 2003 Lord, it's hard not to be humbled when you're a female pastor in the South. Ask Rev. Fran Vickers, pastor of Poplar Grove Cumberland Presbyterian Church in Halls, Tenn. When she got to town, she went to register to vote. The clerk asked her a few questions. Then she asked for her occupation. "Pastor," Vickers said. "Is your husband coming in later or do you want to carry this to him to sign?" the clerk asked Vickers. One time, Vickers went to the local senior center to lead...

    AUBURN - Dr. David Walrath, who is campaigning for the Republican ballot line for the 24th Congressional District against 10-term Congressman Sherwood Boehlert, R-New Hartford, was endorsed by David B. Vickers Friday. Vickers lost in his bid two years ago for the Republican line against Boehlert in the 23rd District. The districts were redrawn this year by the state legislature, as is done every 10 years with the new census figures. A Spanish teacher in Hamilton, Vickers made the race against Boehlert a close one, winning 44 percent of the vote. Boehlert won 15,269 to 11,382 over Vickers. "Although Boehlert...
