- ISIS supporters urged to at… by Glenn At New…
Supporters of the Islamic State terror group are being urged to attack Times Square and other popular American tourist attractions with easily assembled homemade bombs, according to a disturbing report Tuesday.
A message posted on an ISIS Web forum lists widely available ingredients needed to build a pipe bomb, and includes photos showing how to combine them into a deadly explosive device, Vocativ reported.
The Arabic-language message cites Times Square — the scene of a failed car-bomb attack in 2010 by al Qaeda sympathizer Faisal Shahzad — and the Las Vegas Strip as prime targets, but also suggests striking sites in Texas and mass-transit stations across the country.
The message is titled “To the Lone Wolves in America: How to Make a Bomb in Your Kitchen, to Create Scenes of Horror in Tourist Spots and Other Targets,” and was written three weeks ago.
- NY Muslim Convicted of Tryi… by Glenn At New…
A Rochester, New York, man has been indicted on charges of trying to provide material support to the Islamic State militant group and attempting to murder U.S. soldiers, the U.S. Justice Department said on Tuesday.
A federal grand jury in Rochester handed down a seven-count indictment against Mufid Elfgeeh, 30, following an investigation by the FBI’s Rochester Joint Terrorism Task Force, a Justice Department statement said.
According to court records, Elfgeeh, beginning last year, tried to help three people – two of whom were cooperating with the FBI – to travel to Syria to fight for Islamic State, a Sunni militant group that has seized large areas of Iraq and Syria.
“Elfgeeh also plotted to shoot and kill members of the United States military who had returned from Iraq,” authorities said. “As part of the plan to kill soldiers, Elfgeeh purchased two handguns equipped with firearm silencers and ammunition from a confidential source.”
The FBI made the guns inoperable before the confidential source gave them to the suspect, the Justice Department statement said, adding Elfgeeh was in custody.
- Armored Vehicle, Grenade La… by Glenn At New…
Los Angeles Unified School District police officials are considering whether they need the armored vehicle and grenade launchers they received from the U.S. military.
The military hardware at the disposal of LAUSD police officers includes a 20-foot-long, 14-ton armored transport vehicles, much like the ones used to move Marines in Iraq combat zones. The armored vehicle is worth $733,000, and the school district’s police force got it from the government for free.
How would LAUSD use such a vehicle?
“For us? That vehicle would be used for extraordinary circumstances,” LAUSD police Chief Steve Zipperman said.
The armored vehicle, which is stored at a secret location, has been in the department’s possession since July.
“It’s something that we believe is a life-saving vehicle,” Zipperman said. “And certainly we realize we need to take a look, is this the best alternative right now for us until we find something else that is more conducive to a police-type of rescue.”
- NJ Veteran thrown out of Su… by Glenn At New…
A disabled veteran was thrown out of a fast food restaurant because of his service dog.
The incident itself is troubling enough, but you won’t believe what happened after the Eyewitness News investigators arrived at the restaurant to demand answers.
It’s one of the most bizarre exchanges Eyewitness News has ever had on a story. Federal law is very clear: Dogs are recognized as service animals and all businesses open to the public, including restaurants, must allow them in.
But a U.S. Army veteran says a Subway restaurant in Paterson, New Jersey, blatantly ignored the law, and now, he’s determined to send them a message in court.
Richard Hunter’s troubled life turned around in July when the U.S. Army veteran received a service dog from the non-profit group Dogs4Warriors. The 50-year-old suffers from severe Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD).
“He realizes I’m having anxiety before I do,” Richard Hunter said.
So, it was a big deal when Hunter finally took his son and a coworker to lunch a few weeks ago at a Subway restaurant in Paterson, New Jersey.
“This was huge to go out with my son for the first time in over ten years,” Hunter said.
The sign on the door seemingly said it all: “Service animals are welcome,” but Hunter claims the manager, later identified as Mitul Ahmed, said something very different.
“I may have been holding the door when he first said something. He said, ‘The dog is not allowed in here. Get the dog out of here,'” Hunter said.
“He was clearly identified as a service animal,” Eyewitness News Investigative Reporter Sarah Wallace said.
“He was wearing what he has on right now,” Hunter said. “I said he was a service animal.”
“He didn’t care,” Wallace said.
“That’s exactly what he said, ‘I don’t care,'” Hunter said.
- Texas state trooper asked t… by Glenn At New…
A Texas Department of Public Safety trooper said he was asked to leave a Grapevine Waffle House last week because he was carrying a gun, but the restaurant said it was all just a big misunderstanding.
When Jeff Evans walked into the Waffle House Tuesday morning, he was not dressed in a full uniform but rather a field uniform consisting of a polo shirt and tan pants. Evans also had his duty weapon on his hip and his badge on his belt, but according to a report by a local CBS affiliate, the restaurant’s manager only saw the gun, not the badge, and asked Evans to leave.
Evans complied, but later took to Facebook to voice his frustration over the ordeal.
- Gabe Suarez: Multiple, Acce… by Glenn At New…
Many, no doubt, have seen this video and have formed some opinion about what should or should not be done in a scenario like this. I have polled several police officers from the lowly rank of officer, like myself, to assistant chiefs. I have polled detectives and am awaiting some results from a few other agencies. What I found was not that surprising. I found that 50% of the people I talked to stated that they would shoot before seeing a gun based on the man’s behavior. The other 50% stated that they would wait to see a gun before they engaged.
I heard and read several responses on the Warrior Talk Forums, where “damned if you do, damned if you don’t” was applied to a scenario like this. If one shoots this guy to the ground and it turns out that he didn’t have a weapon, they argued that one would be screwed legally (criminally & civilly). Others argued that if you didn’t shoot or if you waited to visually acquire a gun before shooting, it would be too late. The “good guy” is behind the power curve and may not catch up to the event happening to him or her. If this is the case, your chances of being shot and/or killed increase. For me, I tend to err on the side of winning the physical fight and shooting him to the ground before visually acquiring a weapon based on the violator’s behavior. That is me, though. Every person has to decide for themselves at what point their “Red Line” has been crossed and its time to engage. Whether or not I’m pursued criminally or civilly is a real possibility……unless……I’m dead. Then it doesn’t matter.
- For the Left, the Ray Rice … by Glenn At New…
If conservatives want to know why we are losing the culture and the country, it is important to understand that while very few kids and young adults are watching Fox News (or news programs of any kind, for that matter), they inhale sports programming. It’s ubiquitous — television, radio, the Internet. And thus equally unavoidable is sports commentary, more and more of which has less and less to do with sports. Tendentious “sports journalists,” the majority of whom are decidedly left of center, are much less guarded about their hostility to conservatives than their fellow progressives on the political beat. It is a hostility that takes for granted the chummy agreement of its viewers and is designed to make Millennials want to be part of the fun.
This week, the big national news is a sports story. It involves Ray Rice. The star running-back was cut by the Baltimore Ravens after video surfaced showing him punching his now-wife’s lights out in an Atlantic City casino elevator. The National Football League and its commissioner, Roger Goodell, are in the hot seat because, some allege, the NFL had the video before suspending Rice for a measly two games. Logically, the video shouldn’t matter: The commissioner clearly knew Rice had knocked Janay Palmer out cold before issuing the trifling suspension. But graphic video has a way of overrunning logic.
My purpose here is less to wade into the Rice mess than to consider how radical ideas — like the Left’s war on boys — get mainstreamed.
Let’s say the New York Times published, or CNN aired, a fawning news story about tribal politics and Alinsky-style community organizing — how the Left uses (and often manufactures) crises to shake down big corporations, the payoffs from which pour into the coffers of “grass-roots community groups” (i.e., left-wing grievance activists such as ACORN and Al Sharpton’s National Action Network), underwriting their promotion of the “social justice” agenda in schools and the media. Big deal, right? Such stories are standard mainstream-media fare, and very few impressionable young people see them.
But what if the news story was not ostensibly political? And what if it was not published in news media but in entertainment programming — say, a hip sports show, slipped into the mix between the top plays of last night’s ballgames?
On Friday, after highlights of the previous night’s game between the hometown Ravens and the Pittsburgh Steelers, ESPN’s Sports Center reported, incredulously, that many female Ravens fans proudly wore their No. 27 jerseys in homage to Rice. Although this week’s coverage made him Public Enemy No. 1, it turns out that Rice is still quite popular among fans in Baltimore. One woman, clad in her Rice jersey, explained that while she did not condone his behavior, Rice had said he was sorry and was deserving of a second chance, just like other people who have done abominable things. It was a mitigating factor, in her view, that Ms. Palmer (now Mrs. Rice) had started the fight, and that the muscular professional football player was simply retaliating.
A second female Rice fan conceded that there was no excuse for the running back’s violent aggression, but contended that it was for the legal system, not the NFL, to punish him. Since prosecutors allowed Rice to enter a rehab program in anticipation of dismissing the case, rather than face a criminal conviction and prison sentence, she reasoned that the NFL should have let it go at that.
Is she right? Personally, I think a private organization like the Ravens or the NFL should have its own, loftier standards of conduct. A business is well within its rights to demand more of its employees than that they merely avoid criminality.
- “Assault weapon” bans have … by Glenn At New…
To mark the tenth anniversary of the expiration of the federal ban on so-called assault weapons, the anti-gun lobbies made a surprising announcement: They are not attempting to push for a new ban. This is a smart decision, because there is more than one way to shrink the American gun culture. The “assault weapon” prohibition campaign of the last quarter-century was the most successful effort in American history to ban large numbers of guns. But, ultimately, it proved more harmful than helpful to the politicians who supported it and the groups that promoted it.
No president ever invested so much political capital in gun control as Bill Clinton did in order to drag the federal “assault weapon” ban over the finish line in 1994. It passed the House by a single vote. One of the trade-offs to get the prohibition bill passed was a ten-year sunset provision, plus funding for studies to analyze the law’s effects. There were several interim reports, plus a final report issued in early 2004 by Professor Christopher Koper, then of the University of Pennsylvania. The report concluded: “there has been no discernible reduction in the lethality and injuriousness of gun violence, based on indicators like the percentage of gun crimes resulting in death or the share of gunfire incidents resulting in injury.”
Not surprisingly, when the sunset date arrived in September 2004, the law vanished, with much less public controversy than had accompanied its enactment.
Now, on the tenth anniversary of the sunset, the anti-gun lobbies announced their acceptance that this particular sun may never rise again. The announcement came in the form of a report issued by the Center for American Progress, the dominant think tank of the left wing of the Democratic establishment. The report proposed various new anti-gun laws, including special licensing for “assault weapons,” but did not urge prohibition of those firearms.
Last Friday, the news website ProPublica posted an article titled “Why Gun Control Groups Have Moved Away from an Assault Weapons Ban.” The story quoted officials in the two major anti-gun groups (the Bloomberg group and the Brady Campaign), who said they still wanted to ban the guns, but were not currently pushing the ban as a priority.

Authorities prepare to use “whatever force is necessary” to defend international bridges between Texas and Mexico from U.S. based militia groups. The preparations by Texas law enforcement agencies are in response to recently discovered plans by militia groups to attempt closing several international bridges. The militia groups’ plans are intended to be protests against the federal government’s failure to secure the border between the U.S. and Mexico. The plans call for militia groups to begin blocking traffic on an undisclosed number of international bridges in the Rio Grande Valley on Sept. 20th, 2014.
