An 18-year-old Maine man and two other teens, one in Chicago and another in Kentucky, conspired to attack a Chicago mosque with homemade explosives this month, new court documents reveal—until the FBI unraveled the plot. The teens, agents said, concocted a scheme to massacre worshippers at the Shia mosque in the name of ISIS. The recently unsealed federal filing alleges that Xavier Pelkey of Waterville and two teens, who were not named in court papers because they are juveniles, communicated through Instagram and other platforms to plot the attack.(Snip)However, it was foiled by federal investigators last month after a search of Pelkey's apartment turned up three


Several bundles of fireworks held together with electrical tape; a most diabolical plot planned at the highest levels of a terror cell, and foiled only through tireless and very risky investigations.

Agree with #1. Could this be another case of the feds finding stupid people, egging them on, and then arresting them? They do have the track record.

The bombs described might indicate serious deadly intent but aren't likely to have been very effective. It comes close to being a parody of a terrorist plot.

The FBI has some credibility problems, lately. Why did I ask WHY an ISIS group would attack a mosque in a target-rich environment? Doesn't make sense. Are any of these agents involved in thr "kidnap plot" against Witmer? 10 years ago, I'd be cheering them on. Now? I look at anything they do with grave suspicion and incredulity.

Just say three teens. Just because the one clown is 18 doesn't make them an adult. Look at the high schools. Most every senior in high school is 18, but their brains aren't developed enough to understand or make intelligent decisions. It's why the military wants kids this age. It's easier to control people when the mind is like silly putty.

The long-promised project to extend the Second Ave. subway to Harlem will get $400 million in the annual budget President Biden is set to propose Monday, according to New York Democrats Sen. Chuck Schumer and Rep. Adriano Espaillat. After years of delays, the money will go to engineering and construction for Q train stops up to 125th St., the pair said.(Snip)The funding allocation “means we’re out of the station and heading on the track,” the Senate Majority Leader told the Daily News on Sunday. “Once you have $400 million allocated, that’s enough to start construction, and it means all systems are go,” he said.

A lawyer who ran for governor of Maine twice was arrested on child pornography charges Friday. Eliot Cutler, 75, faces four counts of possession of sexually explicit material of a minor under 12 after investigators found 10 files of children being exploited on his computer, according to The Portland Press Herald.

The Beau Biden Foundation for the Protection of Children raked in $3.9 million in 2020, but spent only a fraction of that on its purported mission to help kids, The Post has learned. The Delaware-based charity, which was started in honor of President Biden’s late son, got an infusion of $1.8 million from the Biden Foundation before that group shut down in 2020, according to the charities’ latest tax filings. The Biden Foundation was started by Joe Biden and his wife, Jill Biden, to champion “progress and prosperity for American families.” The Beau Biden charity also took in $225,000 from entities tied to a top political donor and bundler

The alleged victim was there to speak to the court directly. I believe if he is let out "he will kill someone," said assault victim Kim Hayes of Seattle.

He is charged with second-degree assault.(Snip)Records show Jay has been convicted of 20 crimes in the last two decades in California and Washington, including assault, theft, and burglary.

'We do acknowledge Poland has taken on a lot with all of the responsibility,' Biden said. 'The fact that you have so many Ukrainians seeking refuge in this country of Poland. We understand that because we have, at our southern border, thousands of people per day literally, not figuratively, trying to get into the United States,' he said.

Joe Biden’s trip overseas has been a disaster! Biden has dramatically escalated his rhetoric against Vladimir Putin, calling for the Russian leader to be removed because of his brutal invasion of Ukraine. “For God’s sake, this man cannot remain in power,” Biden’s said at the very end of a speech in Poland’s capital that served as the capstone on a four-day trip to Europe. Biden has frequently talked about ensuring that the Kremlin’s now two-month invasion becomes a “strategic failure” for Putin and has described the Russian leader as a “war criminal.” But until his remarks in Warsaw, the American leader had not said that Putin should not run Russia.

Lately, when we think about what’s happening to America’s military under Biden, we’ve been focusing on the Pentagon’s obsessions with race, LGBTQ+++ issues (especially transgenderism), women’s rights, and political “wrong think” (i.e., conservativism). That obsession has consistently put progressive social policy ahead of military cohesion and readiness. However, Jim Webb, who was a Marine infantry officer while in Vietnam, then the Navy secretary under Ronald Reagan and, lastly, a Virginia senator during the Obama years, has written an op-ed about a different concern: The potentially damaging, purely operational changes Marine commandment Gen.
