UK citizen Malik Faisal Akram, who had a known history of extreme behaviour stretching back over 20 years was known to British spy agency MI5 but had been judged as no longer posing a threat to the public in 2020, reports in UK media claim. Malik Faisal Akram, 44, flew to the United States after Christmas 2021, and weeks later took hostages at the Congregation Beth Israel synagogue in Colleyville, Texas. He was shot dead by law enforcement officials at the scene. Yet questions remain unanswered over how Akram was able to travel and gain access to a handgun given his long history of extremist behaviour.

We already know Biden ignores existing Immigration Law and has flung open the borders to everyone, including human & drug smugglers. Now we know known terrorists are included. Biden's lawless policies have crossed the line. Is he a crook or just senile?

One of the biggest risks we have in our society is "intelligent services" both here and abroad. Sometimes they need to kill an agent or a CI....for the greater good of the agency. It happened to Ghislaine Maxwell's father and likely Jeffrey too.

Think about the number of times we hear that "the government" professionals have had subjects "on their radar" and missed the threat posed. They CANNOT be right all the time. So one would think that the objective would be to reduce the risk exposure by limiting avenues used by attackers before like, say, importing thousands of (mostly unvetted) fanatical adherents of the one "religion" that espouses the doctrine of jihad. But that would be *phobic, and politically icky. Get ready for more attacks by other jihad escorted into our communities. Many more, I fear.

Those radical Islamist extremists are like pit bull dogs, you never know when they will attack out of the blue. The Western intelligence, law enforcement, and security services should always take that trait into consideration as they make their evaluations. The numerous so-called “blue on blue” incidents perpetrated by Islamists have shown that over the years.

Congressman Thomas Massie posted a viral video of Speaker Pelosi’s top choice to serve as the Chairwoman of the Transportation Committee repeatedly crashing her car into a parked vehicle. Pelosi’s top pick to chair the Transportation Committee is 84-year-old Eleanor Holmes Norton (D-District of Columbia).

She didn’t even leave a note on the red vehicle after repeatedly slamming into it before blocking it with her car. “Speaker Pelosi is seriously considering this person to serve as the chairwoman of the Transportation Committee,” Massie said. “Folks, I’m not making this up.”

After the employee of a Boston pizzeria allowed five unvaccinated women and a girl to order food and bottles of water, the store manager intervened and called the police on the group for not presenting proof of Covid vaccination. In footage recorded by the women and streamed on Facebook Live, the shop owner asks police to remove the group of females from his restaurant for failing to comply with Boston’s newly implemented mandate requiring proof of vaccination to enter all indoor venues. But the women stood their ground, continued to drink bottles of water and eat the pizza they purchased while being harassed and gawked at by the cops and

Get ready to learn more Greek letters. Scientists warn that omicron’s whirlwind advance practically ensures it won’t be the last version of the coronavirus to worry the world. Every infection provides a chance for the virus to mutate, and omicron has an edge over its predecessors: It spreads way faster despite emerging on a planet with a stronger patchwork of immunity from vaccines and prior illness. That means more people in whom the virus can further evolve. Experts don’t know what the next variants will look like or how they might shape the pandemic, but they say there’s no guarantee the sequels of omicron will cause milder

Last Sunday, 30-year-old Winston Glynn walked into a Burger King in East Harlem, New York at 1:00 a.m., armed with a gun. Surveillance footage showed him entering the restaurant, waving his gun at workers behind the counter, pistol-whipping a male customer, and punching a female manager. As reported by the New York Post, despite nobody resisting Glynn’s demands, he then fatally shot a 19-year-old cashier who had only been working at the restaurant for three weeks. And now? Glynn is reportedly demanding “reparations.” According to CNBC, the suspect was seen demanding so-called reparations and ranting about “social justice” as police officers escorted him out of an East Harlem police station.

Democrats doubled down Tuesday on changing the Senate filibuster, despite authoring a 2017 letter in support of the long-established 60-vote threshold for certain legislation. In 2017, 61 senators penned a bipartisan letter to then-Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., and Democratic Leader Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., urging them to preserve the filibuster as a way to promote bipartisanship and maintain the Senate as the "world’s greatest deliberative body." Pressed Tuesday at a news conference on whether they were hypocrites for now urging a rollback of the filibuster, Democrats said much has changed in the nearly five years since that letter, citing the Jan. 6 attack on the Capitol to stop

In Orange County, California, Deputy District Attorney Kelly Ernby recently passed away due to complications from COVID. Ernby had been a vocal critic of government vaccination mandates and was herself unvaccinated according to her family and friends. This led to the predictable, ghoulish end-zone dancing on social media that we regularly hear from supporters of mandates and immunity passports. While most people in the media are compassionate enough (or at least politically sensible enough) to condemn such callous behavior, the Los Angeles times managed to find someone to take the opposite position.

Back in 1998, sci-fi TV series The X-Files aired an episode called “Kill Switch” about an AI gone rogue. Told when the internet was still accessed by most using dial-up modems, it was a fascinating tale of technology run amuck, a message about not handing too much of your life over to the digital world. While it might also seem like a sci-fi tale, soon enough the United States federal government could force automakers to install kill switches authorities can access and use to shut down any newer vehicle.To many, that might sound like a wonderful idea.

The federal government will let teens drive transports throughout the nation in a move it hopes will alleviate the supply chain crisis—but the initiative is being panned by critics who fear it could lead to disaster. The new apprenticeship program deviates from current law—which requires truckers crossing state lines to be at least 21 years old—by allowing 18- to 20-year-old drivers to travel beyond their home states.(Snip)But safety advocates say the program runs counter to data showing that younger drivers get in more crashes than older ones. They say it's unwise to let teenage drivers be responsible for rigs that can weigh 80,000 pounds
