    The clues are out there, if you know where to look. Scattered across far-flung corners of the internet, there is evidence that Zulfi Hoxha, the son of an Albanian-American pizza-shop owner from New Jersey, had sinister plans. First there’s the defunct Twitter profile, which at one point engaged in a conversation with a State Department counter-propaganda account about the Islamic State. Then there’s the fact that he used the social-networking site Paltalk, a communications platform reportedly popular among Western jihadis. But none of it compares to the isis propaganda video that, according to multiple law-enforcement officials, shows Hoxha beheading captured...

    The Democratic lawmaker — who has represented parts of the Bronx and Westchester County for three decades — added that there “wasn’t a great clamor” from lawmakers to keep the terrorism panel, which was formed after the Sept. 11th attacks. Instead, he said, his committee will focus on what Trump promised Russian President Vladimir Putin during their private meeting last year — and the president’s business ties to Russia and Middle East countries.

    Xi has issued public remarks on several occasions this week – first to herald in the new year, then to issue threats to Taiwan to surrender to Chinese rule or expect military action. In that speech, Xi stated, “we make no promise to abandon the use of force, and retain the option of taking all necessary measures,” he also said, according to the Times. “Reunification is a historical trend and it is the right path. Taiwan independence is an adverse current of history and is a dead end,” Xi said, adding a subtle note to the United States that “foreign...

    Thursday on MSNBC’s “The Last Word,” left-wing documentary filmmaker Michael Moore said the Republicans 2017 tax cut was an act of “terror.” Moore said, “All the Republicans in that photo you showed standing there on the steps with him a year ago today all looking so slap happy and ah, remember it’s not just Trump, all of the Republicans, all of them, nobody has had the courage to stand up and say this is wrong, this is un-American. This hurts this country. This is— this tax cut in a sense an act of terror because it’s going to make the...

    The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) responded Wednesday after CNN accused President Donald Trump of making up statistics about illegal immigration. Trump claimed during a meeting with House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi and Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer this week that terrorists are illegally immigrating to the United States. “People are pouring into our country, including terrorists. We caught 10 terrorists over a short period of time,” Trump said. CNN anchor Jim Sciutto asserted multiple times that Trump was incorrect, writing, “DHS did not provide evidence of a single terrorist caught at the southern border over the very last short...

    Yesterday, with the death of Admiral James “Ace” Lyons America lost a warrior of uncommon clarity of thought and directness of speech and action. Admiral Lyons’ career in the Navy spanned thirty-six years, from his days as a midshipman at Annapolis to service as Commander in Chief of the U.S. Pacific Fleet (at that time the largest single military command in the world), Senior U.S. Military Representative to the United Nations and Deputy Chief of Naval Operations. Although his interests and post-service commentary spanned the gamut of national security and defense issues, I became acquainted with Admiral Lyons through...

    Two groups of Central American migrants marched to the U.S. Consulate in Tijuana on Tuesday with a list of demands, with one group delivering an ultimatum to the Trump administration: either let them in the U.S. or pay them $50,000 each to go home, a report said. Among other demands were that deportations be halted and that asylum seekers be processed faster and in greater numbers, the San Diego Union-Tribune reported. The first group of caravan members, which included about 100 migrants, arrived at the consulate around 11 a.m. Alfonso Guerreo Ulloa, an organizer from Honduras, said the $50,000 figure...

    The New York Times ^ | 07 Dec 2018 | Thomas Gibbons-Neff, Helene Cooper and Eric Schmitt
    Defense Secretary Jim Mattis was livid last month when he summoned top military officials to a video conference at the Pentagon to press them about an investigation into a 2017 ambush in Niger that killed four Americans on a Green Beret team. His anger, Pentagon officials said, came from seeing news reports that junior officers were being reprimanded for the botched Niger mission while the officers directly above them were not. Days later, a senior officer who had largely escaped punishment was told he would be reprimanded. Another senior officer’s actions before and around the time of the mission were...

    The “Palestinians” are up in arms, not for the first time, over what they see as Israel’s “theft” of what they claim are quintessentially “Palestinian” foods — hummus and falafel. This is one more way to continue the narrative of Israel as a foreign body, stealing not just “Palestinian” land, but also stealing “Palestinian” culture, including its clothing, its keffiyeh, and its food. Here’s the latest complaint by a Palestine Authority spokesman: Official Palestinian Authority television recently accused Israel of stealing falafel, hummus, and other “Palestinian foods” as part of a conspiracy against “Palestinian heritage.” The claim was made by...

    Efforts to get the Trump administration to soften its stance on China have intensified in recent weeks. Both outside informal advisers to the president as well as high-ranking government officials have participated in a coordinated push to get President Donald Trump to back off his threat to raise tariffs on Chinese goods from ten percent to 25 percent in the new year, according to a person briefed on the matter.

    Hey Whaddayaknow! Slowly but surely liberals are beginning to figure out that the Women’s March is actually run by notorious Jew-haters. The latest to turn against the women’s march is the liberal German think tank FES which canceled an award it was going to give to the Women’s March. The Friedrich Ebert Foundation (FES), a German think tank for the country’s social democratic party, was set to award the Women’s March its Human Rights Award. But not anymore. This is not the first time the Women’s March has been attacked by liberals. Recently two left-wing, Hollywood actresses turned activists turned...

    When U.S. forces and their Afghan allies rode into Kabul in November 2001 they were greeted as liberators. But after 17 years of war, the Taliban have retaken half the country, security is worse than it’s ever been, and many Afghans place the blame squarely on the Americans. The United States has lost more than 2,400 soldiers in its longest war, and has spent more than $900 billion on everything from military operations to the construction of roads, bridges and power plants. Three U.S. presidents have pledged to bring peace to Afghanistan, either by adding or withdrawing troops, by engaging...

    The standard view of World War I is that it is a testament to the futility of war. Yet maybe the better way to think of the war, which lasted from 1914 to 1918—including American participation in 1917-1918—is that if war comes, it’s better to win than to lose. [...] Most of the chronicling of that war is heavy on mournfulness, along with the implication that war solves nothing. Hence we see headlines such as “The Tragic Futility of World War I” and “The Most Unnecessary War in History.” Still, we are left to wonder: If the war was “futile”...

A court affidavit said police received a tip Thursday from a longtime friend of Nayebyazdi living in California that the suspect had left a phone message for his sister in Iran saying “hundreds are going to die in Oklahoma City.” In the message, Nayebyazdi said, “Don’t tell mom and dad until after it is seen on the news,” the affidavit said. Nayebyazdi, who has a degree in petroleum engineering and worked for an oil company in Oklahoma City, was spotted at the Oklahoma City...
