    Ludhiana-born Anshdeep Singh Bhatia has become the first Sikh to have been inducted into the security detail of US President Donald Trump. Anshdeep was inducted last week after he completed his grueling training in the United States. His family moved to Ludhiana from Kanpur during the 1984 anti-Sikh riots. He lost his uncle and a close relative after the frenzied mob stormed their house in Kanpur’s KDA Colony in Barra. His aunt’s marriage was scheduled in second of week of November and the family was busy making arrangement. Anshdeep’s father Devendra Singh was also injured in the attack and had...

    **SNIP** Paronto said he never shared intel but his security clearance was removed by Brennan. Brennan never told him why. He blasted Brennan for the way the heroes of Benghazi were treated upon return. “We come back from being on the ground to be treated as a second-class citizen. You come back and you’re called a liar,” Paronto told Fox News. “Brennan came in and there was no talk of ‘hey, good job guys,’ not that you look for it, but instead, it was ‘don’t say anything guys, we don’t want the truth to get out.’” He didn’t let up...

    President Trump on Monday suggested he may pull the security clearance of former FBI official Phil Mudd after Mudd appeared on a heated CNN segment over the weekend to push back against the president's revocation of clearances from other members of the intelligence community Trump tweeted that he watched Mudd "become totally unglued and weird" during a debate with CNN analyst Paris Dennard on the president's decision to revoke ex-CIA Director John Brennan’s security clearance. "Mudd is in no mental condition to have such a Clearance," Trump said. "Should be REVOKED?" Trump tagged Fox News host Sean Hannity in the...

    Self-described "ass-kicking, motorcycle-riding, Texas Democrat" MJ Hegar, a candidate for Texas’ deep-red 31st district, has a novel approach to environmental politics: she doesn’t care if her supporters believe in man-made climate change, but says it's hard to deny the corrupting effects of petroleum dependence on American foreign policy. "Our dependence on foreign oil is just so damaging to our country on so many levels," Hegar told ABC News in a June interview. "I respect other people’s freedom to be discerning and to make their own decisions. But they can’t deny that the U.S. military pays the price for our dependence...

    Benghazi terror attack survivor Kris Paronto made it clear this week that he won’t be defending former CIA director John Brennan anytime soon. The former Army Ranger and CIA contractor who lived to tell the tale of the Sept. 11, 2012 terrorist attacks in Benghazi, Libya, said Mr. Brennan essentially got off easy when President Trump revoked his security clearance. Mr. Paronto lost his security clearance years ago for telling his account of the attack.

    The new leader of Democrats in the Senate says Donald Trump is being "really dumb" for picking a fight with intelligence officials, suggesting they have ways to strike back, after the president-elect speculated Tuesday that his "so-called" briefing about Russian cyberattacks had been delayed in order to build a case. "Let me tell you: You take on the intelligence community — they have six ways from Sunday at getting back at you," said Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer Tuesday evening on MSNBC after host Rachel Maddow informed him that intelligence sources told NBC news that the briefing had not been...

    Nor do we describe our enemy as "jihadists" or "Islamists" because jihad is a holy struggle, a legitimate tenet of Islam, meaning to purify oneself or one's community, and there is nothing holy or legitimate or Islamic about murdering innocent men, women, and children.

    In an utterly classless move that fans of the Apprentice learned to expect from the likes of Omarosa Manigault-Newman, the former White House aide appeared on NBC’s Meet the Press with Chuck Todd. While peddling her new book, Unhinged, she released a secret recording of White House Chief of Staff John Kelly firing her, citing “integrity issues.” The release of this recording came just two days after Manigault Newman was caught in a blatant lie about whether she heard President Trump the “N-word.” Omarosa was abruptly fired in December from her position as director of communications for the Office of...

    John Brennan, the former CIA Director and chief counterterrorism advisor to President Obama, once offered effusive words of praise for Hezbollah. In August of 2009, Obama's former counterterrorism adviser stated the following: "Hezbollah started out as purely a terrorist organization back in the early '80s and has evolved significantly over time. And now it has members of parliament, in the cabinet. There are lawyers, doctors, others who are part of the Hezbollah organization... And so, quite frankly, I'm pleased to see that a lot of Hezbollah individuals are in fact renouncing that type of terrorism and violence and are trying...

    08/15/2018 Illinois manufacturer to lay off 150 workers, move to Mexico By Associated Press A storage safe manufacturer is closing two factories in northern Illinois and moving operations to Mexico to counteract the effects of metal tariffs imposed by President Donald Trump’s administration. Stack-on Products will lay off about 150 people at its Wauconda and McHenry plants when they close Oct. 12, the Chicago Tribune reports. Human resources director Al Fletcher said Tuesday the decision to relocate operations to Juarez, Mexico, was made about two months ago. That’s when Trump announced tariffs on numerous goods and materials from China as...

    WASHINGTON — President Trump on Wednesday acted on a threat and revoked the security clearance of former CIA director John Brennan, citing a constitutional responsibility to protect classified information. Brennan, who served in the Obama administration, had retained his security clearance, as is custom, but had also become an increasingly sharp critic of Trump’s. Trump says he is reviewing security clearances for nine other individuals: James Clapper, James Comey, Michael Hayden, Sally Yates, Susan Rice, Andrew McCabe, Peter Strzok, Lisa Page, and Bruce Ohr. Some have been publicly critical of the president, while others are linked to special counsel Robert...

    Abolish the Anchor Principle, Use the Charter’s Notwithstanding Clause, Designate the Entire Border Ports of Entry An Angus Reid poll released Friday shows about two thirds of Canadians feel the influx of illegal border crossers amounts to a crisis. These two thirds include people who voted NDP and Liberal in the 2015 general election. As the Liberal government is fond of noting, anyone who opposes these people walking into Canada from the United States is “alt right” and “un-Canadian.” Wonder how Liberal Party supporters who chuckle at conservatives being called names feel now. Time will tell. (Angus Reid Institute, Aug....

    The White House announced last week that President Trump was considering revoking the security clearances of six former intelligence officials. Law and policy support such revocations, but as the swift and negative reaction in Washington showed, the president must take a nuanced approach. The legal framework for security clearances was charted by a 1988 Supreme Court decision, Department of the Navy v. Egan. The justices noted that a president has absolute power to grant, deny or revoke access to classified information. This authority is inherent in his role as commander in chief. The court ruled that the president could form...

    Are virtual machines (VM) more secure than containers? You may think you know the answer, but IBM Research has found containers can be as secure, or more secure, than VMs. James Bottomley, an IBM Research Distinguished Engineer and top Linux kernel developer, writes: One of the biggest problems with the current debate about Container vs Hypervisor security is that no-one has actually developed a way of measuring security, so the debate is all in qualitative terms (hypervisors 'feel' more secure than containers because of the interface breadth) but no-one actually has done a quantitative comparison. To meet this need, Bottomley...

    Top Maryland officials have asked the U.S. Department of Homeland Security to help ensure that the state’s election system is secure after learning that a Russian-backed firm is linked to the Maryland state Board of Elections. Gov. Larry Hogan (R), Senate President Thomas V. Mike Miller Jr. (D-Calvert) and House Speaker Michael E. Busch (D-Anne Arundel) sent a joint letter on Friday to Homeland Secretary Kirstjen M. Nielsen asking for technical assistance to evaluate the network utilized by the state board.

    Police in Scotland have arrested the paragliding protester who was able to get surprisingly close to President Donald Trump on Friday night as the President visited his Turnberry golf resort. In a statement, Police Scotland said a 55-year-old man has been charged and will appear in Ayr Sheriff Court on Monday. After the President arrived at his Turnberry resort, the paraglider, a Greenpeace activist, flew by the President with a banner that read, "TRUMP, WELL BELOW PAR #RESIST," and then managed to escape. Greenpeace tweeted an image of the incident with the caption, "We've just delivered a message to @RealDonaldTrump...
