Senator Charles Schumer was angered to learn that the President’s final budget slashed funding for a counterterrorism program the New York Democrat regards as particularly important for his state, which jihadists still consider a favorite target.
Which is odd, because the same budget is rather generous with spending overall (Obama’s Final Budget Proposes $4.1 Trillion In Spending, […]
In Germany, a centuries-long tradition is the Christmas market, where people can buy holiday decorations, listen to carols, snack on seasonal foods and drink hot mulled wine.

From France, we learn that a follower of the Religion of Peace was arrested for plotting to blow up the Eiffel Tower, the Louvre and a nuclear power plant. If successful, the attacks would have struck at icons of Western culture, as well as murdering many non-Muslim people.

Following the Boston Marathon bombing in which three were killed and hundreds injured, iconic footraces have come to be seen as major targets for jihadist Muslims.

The immigrants worry that Americans will utilize pattern recognition to surmise that Islam is a religion of […]
It’s curious that Abdullatif Aldosary (pictured), the Iraqi refugee who bombed the Casa Grande Arizona Social Security office last November, was tried initially for illegal gun possession rather than the attempted terrorism.
He was clearly a hostile character who should have been deported after two arrests and 8 months in jail for aggravated harassment which occurred […]
The Senate Homeland Security Committee has released its own report on the 9/11 Benghazi terror attack that killed four, including our Ambassador.

Two naturalized citizen brothers born in Pakistan were busted in south Florida for conspiring to use a weapon of mass destruction, and authorities say there was no sting behavior on the part of the police.

Will someone please explain how an illegal alien aspiring suicide bomber who grew up in Morocco until age 16 gets to be designated as a “homegrown” terror threat?
Fox News maintains its rep as being squishy on hostile Islam with that spin on the recent story about the would-be Capitol attacker (see below).
