An SAS sniper has killed a senior ISIS fighter with a ´one in a million´ night-time shot from a mile away, it has been claimed. The marksman is said to have killed the terrorist with a ´head shot´ close to the Syrian border having been given a window of just 15 seconds. He is understood to be a sergeant with the SAS G-Squadron and a veteran of operations in both Iraq and Afghanistan, where he is understood to have recorded as many as 100 kills. According to the Daily Star Sunday, he is believed to have used a US-made McMillan TAC-50 sniper

That’s a pretty nifty gun he’s got there. Can Michigan and Minnesota residents get those?

At that distance and that size it must have made an impressive splash on the other end.

Well done! From that range, the demoralization of the enemy is maxed out. Can you imagine? No matter where you are, if you lead this group of monsters in human form, you are not safe. The second you take command, your days are limited. Obviously, according to their belief system, "It is God´s will".

Wow, body shots at that range are becoming commonplace but a head shot is truly impressive. Everything has to be just right.

Imagine seeing the jihadi´s head explode and you don´t hear the shot until seven seconds later. That would be enough to make you want to turn infidel.

Well done. Note that he didn´t use a British made rifle.....they really don´t have anyone who knows anything about guns in their country any more.

If he hit him in the head with a .50 BMG....ewwwweee. Splash all over EVERYTHING.

Since the rifle is capable of ~9-18" groups, (0.5-1.0 MOA, 1760 yds), at that range, with no wind variation, it was, to a degree, a lucky shot.

And nobody shoots at heads at 1800 yards. They shoot at center of mass, and in this case missed a bit high, still centered. Must have been pretty calm winds, too.

Great shot, no doubt. Making the world a better place, on shot at a time.

Sean Spicer has released two excerpts from his forthcoming memoir in which the former White House press reveals what it was like to work with President Donald Trump on two of the administration´s biggest media debacles. The first excerpt is centered around Trump´s ´Grab ´em by the pussy´ Access Hollywood tape released one month before the 2016 presidential election while Spicer was serving as communications director for the Republican National Committee. The second excerpt provides a more intimate look into Spicer´s relationship with the president, revealing what Trump told him after the 46-year-old put his foot firmly in his mouth by saying

President Donald Trump demanded on Friday that the ´$40,000,000 commissioner´ of the NFL suspend players for a whole season if they kneel during national anthem more than once. In a rehash of last year´s controversy, the President took to Twitter to blast NFL commissioner Roger Godell for not doing enough to stem the tide of players protesting racial inequality in America. ´The NFL National Anthem Debate is alive and well again - can´t believe it!,´ Trump wrote in the tweet. ´Isn´t it in contract that players must stand at attention, hand on heart? The $40,000,000 Commissioner must now make a stand.

AROUND five high-pressure steam pipes exploded on Fifth Avenue at 21st Street in the Flatiron District on Thursday, prompting the evacuation of several buildings in the area. The explosions took place at around 6.40am EST. The Flatiron commercial neighborhood is home to the city´s tallest apartment buildings and office high-rises. Staff from the Office of Emergency Management and the New York Fire Department´s hazmat team were rushed to the scene. The blast created a large hole in the middle of Fifth Avenue, sending chunks of asphalt into the street. Reports claim that multiple manholes exploded between West 19th Street to West 21st Street.

President Donald Trump is dreaming of Joe Biden, saying the former Vice President would be his ´dream´ Democratic opponent in the 2020 presidential contest. "I dream about Biden. That´s a dream," he told CBS News when asked about the next presidential election. Then he got in a dig at the former vice president. ´Look, Joe Biden ran three times. He never got more than 1 percent and President Obama took him out of the garbage heap, and everybody was shocked that he did. I´d love to have it be Biden,´ Trump said.

Bill Clinton called on political leaders to remember ´our common humanity´ in a thinly-veiled attack on Donald Trump as he spoke to the NAACP´s convention in San Antonio last night. The 42nd President called for humanity at a time ´when voting rights, when family security and the best interests of children, when the bonds of our neighbors and the friendships of our oldest allies are being strained.´ He did not mention Trump by name but his comments were a clear reference to the President´s family separation policy and his recent confrontations in foreign affairs which saw him refer to the European Union

President Donald Trump contradicted U.S. intelligence agencies again on Wednesday, saying that Russia was not still targeting the United States, and accused his critics of being deranged. The day after he tried to quiet a political uproar over his failure to confront Russian President Vladimir Putin during their Helsinki summit for Moscow’s 2016 U.S. election meddling, Trump adopted his usual defiant posture and dismissed assessments of Russia from the intelligence community. “We’re doing very well, probably as well as anybody has ever done with Russia. And there’s been no president ever as tough as I have been on Russia,” Trump said

Trump was asked about the election threat during a brief press statement where he said no president had ´ever´ been as tough on Russia as him. ´Is Russia still targeting the U.S.,´ asked a pool reporter who was with him in the Oval Office. ´No,´ Trump responded, shaking his head.

BUDAPEST - Hungary will quit the United Nations migration pact before its final approval, Foreign Minister Peter Szijjarto said on Wednesday, adding that the accord posed a “threat to the world”. “This document is entirely against Hungary’s security interests,” Szijjarto told a news conference. The accord is to be formally adopted in December, but Hungary will not take part at the Morocco meeting, Szijjarto said, adding that the country would also oppose the pact should it come up for a vote in the General Assembly.

Marina Gross, a State Department translator, was pictured along with Trump, Putin, and Putin´s translator at their Helsinki summit. Interest in her role has only grown, after furious critics accused Trump of ´treason´ for failing to push Putin publicly in any way at their Helsinki summit. It was after that meeting that Trump emerged only to engage in a disastrous press conference where he took Putin´s denial of election interference over

President Trump’s longtime lawyer, Michael D. Cohen, secretly recorded a conversation with Mr. Trump two months before the presidential election in which they discussed payments to a former Playboy model who said she had an affair with Mr. Trump, according to lawyers and others familiar with the recording. The F.B.I. seized the recording this year during a raid on Mr. Cohen’s office. The Justice Department is investigating Mr. Cohen’s involvement in paying women to tamp down embarrassing news stories about Mr. Trump ahead of the 2016 election. Prosecutors want to know whether that violated federal campaign finance laws, and any

Since her surprise primary victory over 10-term Congressman Joe Crowley in New York’s 14th District, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez has been promoted by the media as the prototype of a new generation of young progressives destined to replace the leadership of the Democratic Party. Unfortunately for her media boosters, however, she keeps blowing her lines. It’s not just her rote advocacy of single-payer healthcare and guaranteed government jobs, or even that she backs wacky ideas like abolishing ICE and occupying airports — Ocasio-Cortez is genuinely clueless. She outed herself, in several recent interviews, as functionally illiterate in economics, international relations, and history.

Interior Secretary Ryan Zinke is making plans to move the headquarters of the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) out of Washington, D.C., to a city in the West. The federal government owns 640 million acres in the U.S., or roughly 28 percent of the nation’s entire landmass. The BLM manages 248.3 million acres of public land, more than any other agency, according to a March 2017 report by the Congressional Research Service.

CLEARWATER — Pinellas County Sheriff Bob Gualtieri announced Friday that his agency will not arrest a man deputies say shot and killed another man during an argument over a handicap parking space. The incident falls under Florida’s self-defense law known as "stand your ground," the sheriff said during a news conference. The law gives immunity to those in fear of their lives who use force to defend themselves. The shooting "is within the bookends of ‘stand your ground’ and within the bookends of force being justified," the sheriff said, later adding, "I’m not saying I agree with it, but I don’t make

Before the word "resignation" became a euphemism for being fired, it connoted a sense of public integrity and personal honor. Attorney General Elliot Richardson and his deputy, William Ruckelshaus, showed both qualities when they resigned from the Nixon administration during the Saturday Night Massacre in 1973. Jimmy Carter’s secretary of state, Cyrus Vance, did likewise when he resigned during the Iran hostage crisis in 1980. Assuming Mike Pompeo and John Bolton still have their own senses intact, they, too, should resign following the epic disgrace of the U.S.-Russia summit inHelsinki on Monday. So should their senior staff. I don’t suggest

In the past few days, President Trump has given at least some Republicans reason to express displeasure over his relationship with Russia. First he performed a pathetic ritual of subservience before Vladimir Putin, standing beside the Russian leader — after a private meeting between the two, which no aides were permitted to attend — and dismissing the copious evidence of a Russian attack on the 2016 election in deference to Putin’s word. Then we learned that Putin had suggested that we make Americans available to the Kremlin for questioning, including Michael McFaul, the former U.S. ambassador to Russia, in exchange

A research group in New Jersey has taken a fresh look at postelection polling data and concluded that the number of noncitizens voting illegally in U.S. elections is likely far greater than previous estimates. As many as 5.7 million noncitizens may have voted in the 2008 election, which put Barack Obama in the White House.

Last Friday, Maine Democrat Zak Ringelstein wasn’t ready to consider himself a formal member of the Democratic Socialists of America, even if he appreciated the organization’s values and endorsement in his bid to become a United States senator. Three days later, he told The Associated Press that was ready to become the only major-party Senate candidate in the nation to be a dues-paying democratic socialist. The swift evolution is latest evidence of a nationwide surge in the strength and popularity of an organization that, until recently, operated on the fringes of the liberal movement’s farthest left flank.
