U.S. Northern Command (Northcom) has called for increased random security checks at all sites across Northern Command following the deadly shootings at Joint Base Pearl Harbor-Hickam in Hawaii and Naval Air Station (NAS) Pensacola in Florida. The Navy on Saturday identified the three victims of the NAS Pensacola shooting as Ensign Joshua Kaleb Watson, 23, of Coffee, Ala.; Airman Mohammed Sameh Haitham, 19, of St. Petersburg, Fla.; and Airman Apprentice Cameron Scott Walters, 21, of Richmond Hill, Ga. "The Sailors that lost their lives in the line of duty showed exceptional heroism and bravery in the face of evil," said the Navy chief of information in a statement.

OK. This is weird. How did a muslim get killed in the shooting? A 19 year old muslim enlisted sailor gets shot by a muslim? The reason I bring it up is that statistically the ratio of guys named Mohammed in the military is pretty low. What's the deal here?

One 'nice' thing about a war zone is that all the guns are loaded. Used to enjoy lunch at T.Q. Marine Air Base (near Falluja/Ramadi 2006) in a DFAC with 800+ teenagers......all toting machine guns.....everyone polite......everyone respectful.....never felt safer or more proud of American kids.

The key to the official attitude of the military lies in the noble yet idiotic quote from the “Navy chief of information” who said “The Sailors that (sic) lost their lives...showed exceptional heroism and bravery in the face of evil (sic)” which line should read “...in the face of the enemy.” Islam is the champion of Eastern Barbarization and the enemy of Western Civilization. And the countdown to my getting thrown off Lucianne starts...NOW!

I can see right now that this is going to require " Comprehensive Military Security Reform". And I can see the nimble committees forming to implement a discussion of it as I type .

Something is really off here. USNORTHCOM can certainly put out advisories or terror alerts, but service components are responsible for their installations. If this "called for" phrase is directive in nature something is horribly wrong with Navy procedures and leadership. Has this infected the other services?

#6, about a decade ago, 4 U.S. airmen were shot and killed by a filthy islamofascist terrorist pig at Rhein Main Air Base, Germany. They were unarmed. Pensacola trains Navy pilots. I assume Navy pilots fly with sidearms, just as USAF pilots used to do, and probably still do. So, arm the flight students. That would have averted the problem of the filthy Saudi Arabian filthy islamofascist terrorist pig.

Military bases check ID's, period. They NEVER check specifically for guns unless they find one in a random inspection...Seems to me profiling is an absolute necessity...or arm everyone on staff so perps can't get far with their perverted ideas of right/wrong!

#7, I understand all services have seemingly lax security measures or there are deficiencies in implementation. My point is that these so-called combatant commands, especially NORTHCOM which is allegedly in charge of protecting the homeland, have diluted the command authority of the services to some degree. I could say the same thing about the other joint HQs. It's a sign of military affluenza when our answer to national security challenges is to create HQs without troop units but provide more slots for high ranking officers and civilians who are more politicized as the years go by. So, NORTHCOM, run around and wave your arms for a few days, then you can go back to hosting Mexican generals for Lord knows what.

Liberal who was paying attention: “these right-wing judges will have the power to shape U.S. law on climate, reproductive rights, and other major areas for decades to come”This week ended with the Senate confirming 8 federal judicial nominees, bringing the total of Trump-appointed federal judges to 172, one-fifth of the federal judiciary. But liberals and the mainstream media barely paid attention because they all were focused on Jerry Nadler’s law professor show, which was so boring and worthless, even Nadler had trouble staying awake.

"What happened to Drudge?"A lot of people have been asking that question lately. If you talk to conservatives these days, you'll hear that Matt Drudge's eponymous news aggregation site has gone over to the dark side—that Matt's joined the anti-Trump resistance. And now, Rasmussen Reports, an arguably reputable polling operation, is calling Drudge out on Twitter, even suggesting that the site has been sold.

Congressman Al Green has become one of the Democratic Party’s top spokesmen. Which is a good thing, because Green is generally unfiltered, and therefore gives us a glimpse into his party’s id. This, for example, is revealing: Rep. Al Green (D-TX) said on Saturday during an interview on MSNBC that President Donald Trump needed to be impeached “to deal with slavery.” Green, who has previously stated that Trump must be impeached or else “he will get reelected,” said this week that there is “no limit” to the number of times that Democrats can try to impeach the president.

It’s widely accepted that one of Hillary Clinton’s worst blunders as a presidential candidate involved her proclivity to insult large swaths of the electorate. Mudslinging is hardly a new phenomenon on the campaign trail, of course, but most politicians reserve their calumny for opposing candidates. Clinton’s innovation was to turn her invective on the voters. Yet, even as the Democrats endeavor to undo the electoral consequences of her ineptitude, many of their candidates continue to follow Clinton’s deplorable example. As recently as last week, former Vice President Joe Biden, “Mayor Pete” Buttigieg, and Senator Kamala Harris felt the need to remind prospective voters of their multifarious shortcomings.

Second Lt. Mohammed Saeed Alshamrani, an aviation officer in the Saudi Air Force, opened fire at the Naval Air Station in Pensacola, Fla., on Friday, killing four people and wounding many others. In doing so, he showed yet again that the prevailing politically correct obfuscation and denial regarding the jihad threat is not only wrong, it’s dangerous. If we had a realistic approach to the jihad threat, Mohammed Saeed Alshamrani’s victims would be alive today. Before he embarked upon his killing spree, someone who appeared to be Alshamrani ranted on Twitter about the evils of America. First, he rejected the George W. Bush explanation for jihad terrorism,

Many Americans remain nonplussed over revelations in the House Intelligence Committee’s Impeachment Inquiry Report that its chairman, Adam Schiff, not only secretly subpoenaed telephone records from President Trump’s attorney, Rudy Giuliani, but also obtained responses that detailed dates and lengths of phone calls to Trump attorney Jay Sekulow, ranking committee member Devin Nunes, and Hill reporter John Solomon. That Schiff self-disclosed this action as a rightful part of his committee’s information gathering is equally stunning. Every bit as bad, it appears that national telephone carriers AT&T and Verizon, who so tout their corporate concerns about subscriber privacy, responded to such obviously politicized demands without a whimper.

President Trump arrived in London on Dec. 2 for the 70th anniversary summit of the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO). He was also right on time for Britain’s high-stakes general election. The vote that will decide the future of Brexit — and in a real sense the futures of both the UK and the EU — takes place in just a few days, on Thursday. This confluence of events posed a tricky issue for British Prime Minister Boris Johnson. Well before Trump’s arrival, much was made over the president’s intentions: Would he wade into domestic, UK politics as he rather gleefully did during his state visit over the summer?

Portland, Oregon, like many cities on the left coast, is struggling with a growing homelessness crisis. But what can they do about it? One idea that’s now being floated is to change the building codes so that all new structures (including private property, not just government buildings) include spaces for people to “rest” and “feel welcome and safe.” This understandably has prospective property owners concerned, since the wording is all quite vague and suggests that they will be forced to allow the homeless to camp in and around their buildings.

Thirteen of the 19 police officers who engaged the armed robbers were from the Miami-Dade Police Department, WFOR-TV reported Friday. Another six were from Miramar and Pembroke Pines, according to the Miami Herald. All 19 have been relieved of patrol duty as the FBI investigates what happened and experts question whether police handled the situation in an appropriate manner, the paper reported Friday.

Is the ghost of John McCain haunting Senator Lindsey Graham? The South Carolina Senator went on Maria Bartiromo’s Fox News show, Sunday Morning Futures, to throw a wet blanket on conservatives’ dreams of a Senate trial that would get to the bottom of the plot against President Trump. He wants to leave all those rocks in place, turning nothing over to see what crawls out. Instead, once the House managers present their case, he wants a quick vote, presumably ending in dismissal of the case. In particular, Graham ruled out calling Adam Schiff to testify.

The display, which has stoked debate on the Facebook page of the church’s lead pastor, shows classic nativity figurines of Joseph and Mary in cages on either side of a cage containing the manger of Jesus. “We see this as, in some ways, the Holy Family standing in for the nameless families,” said the Rev.

Pensacola, FL - The Saudi gunman who killed three people at the Pensacola naval base had apparently gone on Twitter shortly before the shooting to blast US support of Israel and accuse America of being anti-Muslim, a US official said Sunday as the FBI confirmed it is operating on the assumption the attack was an act of terrorism. Investigators are also trying to establish whether the killer, identified as 2nd Lt. Mohammed Alshamrani, 21, of the Royal Saudi Air Force, acted alone. Alshamrani, who was killed in the attack at a classroom building Friday, was undergoing flight training at Pensacola, where members of foreign militaries routinely receive instruction.
