National Review By Deroy MurdockHere are some examples. The Trump-hating media have pounded White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders for her “unfortunate misstatement” (as presidential adviser Kellyanne Conway put it) on Fox News Sunday that some 3,700 “known or suspected terrorists” were caught at the U.S.–Mexico border. In fact, these “special-interest aliens” include terrorists, people who have lived or traveled through terrorist hotbeds, and others whose whereabouts trigger closer scrutiny when entering the U.S. This number includes people apprehended on the border, but mainly at airports and other locations. Trump’s detractors have used this dustup to imply that if there are not 3,700 ISIS killers in Tijuana pole-vaulting into San Ysidro, then terrorists must be as rare there as polar bears. This echoes the words of former U.S. representative Robert Francis O’Rourke (D., Texas). He claimed last year that “precisely zero terrorists, terrorist groups, or terror plots have ever...

Apologists for Extremism in the West

  by Majid Rafizadeh  •  Gatestone Institute Many apologists say that Islam is a religion of peace. What they do not say is that, according to Islam, "peace" is to come only after all the world has converted to Islam. Until then, all the world is divided in two: dar al-Islam ("the House of Islam"), made up those who already believe, and dar al-harb ("the House of War"), made up of those who have yet to "believe". If one is to follow the conclusions of doctrines based on jihad and sharia, after all the disbelievers believe, then there will be peace. What is odd, is that even after countless attacks in Europe just since 2001, when we have all seen and felt this House of War on our flesh, no one ever mentions its existence. How come we never hear more about this House of War? What we are seeing,...

KESQ News Channel 3 Homeland Security: CA must change 'Real ID' requirements By Associated Press SACRAMENTO, Calif.- - The U.S. government says California must change how it issues identification cards that comply with stricter federal requirements.The so-called Real ID cards will be needed to board airplanes or enter federal buildings by October 2020 under security enhancements following 9/11. California already has issued 2.3 million cards. Department of Motor Vehicles spokesman Marty Greenstein said that those IDs will remain valid and changes will apply going forward. The DMV had required one document proving residency and counted on delivery by the post office as secondary proof of someone's address.Emails show the Department of Homeland Security approved that process last year. But it told the DMV in November that was no longer acceptable and two documents proving residency are required.

The Miami Herald Broward Sheriff Scott Israel tells staff he’s being suspended over Parkland responseBy Julie K. Brown It appears that Broward County Sheriff Scott Israel is preparing to pack it in, for now.The two-term sheriff, the object of fierce criticism over BSO’s handling of the Parkland massacre, told his top commanders that he will be removed from office by Gov. Ron DeSantis, sources told the Miami Herald.DeSantis, who was sworn in Tuesday morning, had not made a formal announcement of a possible suspension. Israel’s discussions with staff about his ouster were first reported by Miami New Times.Stuart N. Kaplan, one of Israel’s lawyers, said Israel was working at his office at the public safety building in Fort Lauderdale.“The governor has not said anything to us, directly or indirectly, as to whether or not the sheriff is going to be suspended,’’ Kaplan said. “He is working and continues to serve...

Weekly Blitz Christine Douglass WilliamsFormer Obama White House homeland security and counterterrorism adviser Lisa Monaco is warning that “the terror threat getting worse.” She is referring, of course, to the jihad threat that neither she nor any other Obama official dares to name. It was the Obama Administration that tied the hands of counter-jihad analysts by scrubbing all reference to Islam from counterterror training materials, making it nearly impossible for intelligence and law enforcement agents to know and understand the people they were trying to stop. While serving as FBI director, Robert Mueller “decided to purge hundreds of counter-terrorism training materials that arguably rendered America less safe in the face of a growing domestic Islamic extremist problem.”Today the media is quick to attack Trump as racist when he speaks about the jihad threat. Had Trump said the same thing Monaco said, he would be accused of stoking irrational fears.Read more:...
