    On July 21, U.S. Supreme Court Justice Samuel Alito gave a keynote address at the Notre Dame Law School/Religious Liberty Summit’s gala dinner in Rome, Italy, where he mocked and ridiculed European critics of the Court’s decision to overturn Roe v. Wade. Alito made it abundantly clear that he couldn’t care less what European officials think of that ruling, which ended abortion as a national right in the United States and allows individual states to ban abortion if they choose. Journalist Linda Greenhouse is highly critical of Alito’s Religious Liberty Summit speech in a guest essay/op-ed published by the New York Times on August 11. Greenhouse has no problem with the fact that Alito is religious; the problem, she emphasizes, is the disdain Alito shows for those who aren’t. Greenhouse describes Alito’s “snarky” speech as a “victory lap” following Roe’s demise and “a call to arms on behalf of religion.” Alito told the crowd in Rome, “The challenge for those who want to protect religious liberty in the United States, Europe and other similar places is to convince people...
    U.S. Senator Rick Scott (R-FL) gave a lengthy speech at CPAC on Friday in Dallas, telling far right conservatives that Democratic policies are “evil,” the “militant left” is the “enemy” and “the greatest danger” America has ever faced while claiming Democrats are “wacky” socialists, and socialism is responsible for the deaths of 100 million people, After calling U.S. Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX) “one of the most principled individuals I know” who “will always stand up for what he believes,” Scott told attendees at the Conservative Political Action Conference that the “militant left wing in our country has become the enemy within” and is “the greatest danger we’ve ever faced.” Scott took his audience on a long tour of 20th century history, but along the way equated “the militant left” with “the woke left” who he says has now “seized…control of our economy, our culture and our country.” READ NOW: Republican Sen.

    ORLANDO, Florida — The greatest threat to the United States is not foreign powers such as Russia or China, but rather the internal threat of the “militant left-wing,” according to Florida Sen. Rick Scott. The National Republican Senatorial Committee's chairman indicated domestic ideological disparities were the most perilous to the U.S. because the "woke Left" has been crushing dissent across several institutions, both public and private. “We survived the war of 1812, Civil War, World War I and World War II, Korea, Vietnam, and the Cold War,” Scott said Saturday at the Conservative Political Action Conference. “Today, we face the greatest danger we have ever faced: The militant left-wing in our country has become the enemy within.” “You may think, ‘Well, Rick, that's pretty dramatic. You call them the enemy within?’ Yes, I am,” Scott said. “The woke Left now controls the Democrat Party. The entire federal government, the news media, academia, big tech, Hollywood, most corporate boardrooms, and now even some of our top military leaders.” TULSI GABBARD TORCHES CANCEL CULTURE AND IS FETED AT...
    Posted on: 16/10/2021 – 05:17 In Sudan, the military and the power-sharing public blame each other for the many crises that have rocked the country, such as the ongoing blockade of Port Sudan. This afternoon, demonstrations are planned in Khartoum in response to calls for dissent within the civilian forces. Many see the military’s influence in this protest Abdallah Hamdok put pressure on the government By breaking the alliance of civil parties. Behind the scenes, we must see, among others, the hand of Mohammed Hamdan Takalo, the commander of the powerful paramilitary force, Hemidi. According to several sources, Mohammed Hamdan Tagalo may have taken the wallet to encourage many Sudanese to join the protest. Students from Koranic schools are said to have been paid to go to Khartoum. Buses are said to have been taken from Darfur to the sword. Its purpose is to put pressure on the civilian government. Hemiti on the move According to a French diplomat, Hamidi is playing hostility between the center and the outside world by supporting a faction of the...
    The Oath Keepers, a far-right militia group, were among the extremists whose members violently attacked the U.S. Capitol Building on January 6 — and they have been actively recruiting law enforcement officers and military veterans. One of the law enforcement officers in Southern California who was a member of the Oath Keepers in the past, according to the Orange County Register, is Riverside County Sheriff Chad Bianco. In an article published the Register on October 5, reporters Joe Nelson and Scott Schwebke explain that Bianco "was a dues-paying member of the Oath Keepers in 2014, an affiliation he acknowledges and makes no apologies for despite the group's reputation as a militia of anti-government extremists." Bianco, according to the reporters, has "defended the group as a pro-Constitution, pro-freedom organization mislabeled by the FBI and mainstream media." Nelson and Schwebke report, "Bianco's one-time membership — along with the memberships of roughly 40,000 others, including current and former law enforcement and military personnel nationwide — was exposed after hackers breached the Oath Keepers' website and mined its data. The information was made available...
    THIS is the powerful moment an Afghan women bravely stared down the barrel of a Taliban militants gun as chaos erupted on the streets on Kabul.    The defining image, which was posted online, came amid a female lead protest in the capital on Tuesday as the terror group continues to brutally clamp down on their freedoms. 8The woman bravely stares down a gunman who was aiming at her chest The Sun previously reported that the heavily armed extremists opened fire with machine guns in order to break up the march. At the time, protesters - many of whom were women - were reportedly chanting for "freedom" as hundreds of people flooded the streets waving placards and the former flag of Afghanistan. Taliban forces have continued to face opposition as they surged back to the power - even as the group claimed to have crushed the final pocket of resistance in the Panjshir Valley. Chaos erupted as the protesters chanted slogans such as "Long live the resistance" and also took aim at neighbouring Pakistan, who some Afghans have...
    A Taliban flag was painted on the walls outside the former US embassy in Kabul, Afghanistan, new photos show. The flag appeared to have been painted in the past few days, and was shared by photojournalist Jake Simkin on Monday.  The embassy was abandoned by US diplomats on August 15 as the city fell to the militant group amid America's chaotic withdrawal from the country. Embassy operations have since been moved to Doha, the capital of Qatar, and are focused chiefly on processing immigrant visas for refugees.  Secretary of State Antony Blinken said on August 30, after the last US troops had left the country, that he anticipated the embassy would remain closed for the foreseeable future.  A Taliban flag was painted on the walls outside the former US embassy in Kabul, Afghanistan, photos show Murals outside the former US embassy in Kabul have been painted over white with black Arabic text since the US pulled out of the country last week  The embassy was abandoned by US diplomats on August 15 as Kabul fell to the Taliban....
    The U.S. combat mission in Afghanistan concluded with the Taliban taking control of the Middle East country as it had prior to the 2001 invasion, but the biggest winner of the conflict may not have been the Islamist militant group but instead China. China is in a more favorable strategic position now that its top geopolitical rival is departing Afghanistan, and a more cooperative Taliban has made it likely that Beijing will gain access to the country’s economic resources and even get assurances that the militant group will not promote Islamist terrorism in China’s western regions.
    (CNN)Since the Taliban swept to power in Afghanistan, seizing provincial capitals at lightning speed, it's been difficult to get a picture of what life is like for Afghans outside the capital, Kabul. Especially for women.On Thursday, CNN reached three women -- all in their mid-twenties and well-educated -- to get a glimpse of how their lives have been impacted by the swift regime change and how they feel about their futures under Taliban rule.All three would have been young girls when the Taliban were previously in control, before being removed from power in 2001.

    Leaders of the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) are preparing to formalize a relationship with the Taliban as the new government of Afghanistan, a Thursday report said. Chinese assessments of the realities of the Afghan battleground pointed at a necessity to reckon with the militant group, should it succeed in overthrowing the Western-backed government, multiple U.S. intelligence sources familiar with the documents told U.S. News & World Report. After the president of Afghanistan, Ashraf Ghani, fled the country earlier Sunday, the Islamist militant group — which was to remain in the outskirts of Kabul — advanced into the capital. These recent developments may spur the Chinese government to expedite the process of recognition of what may now be called the “Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan,” according to the sources. (RELATED: OPINION: China Will Win Afghanistan — To America’s Embarrassment) The transition, or re-positioning, from non-state to state begins.

    (CNN)The Afghan government is in talks with the Taliban over the country's future as the militant group surrounded the capital, Kabul, on Sunday, after seizing control of every other major city across the country in just two weeks. Biden authorizes 1,000 more troops to be sent to AfghanistanThe talks signal a likely end, or transformation, of the embattled government of Afghan President Ashraf Ghani, and puts the militant group closer to the precipice of control over the entire country.The US drawdown of its forces after nearly two decades in Afghanistan has opened a clear path for the Taliban to take on and defeat the country's security forces. Many key cities fell with little to no resistance. US President Joe Biden has sent some 5,000 troops to carry out and secure a major operation to evacuate American embassy staff and, later, other US citizens living in the country. The operation initially involved 3,000 troops, but on Saturday, Biden boosted that number as the extraordinary speed by the Taliban toward the capital became apparent. Taliban spokesman Zabihullah Mujahid said that all fighters...
    Contrary to what many observers have suggested, Donald Trump's attack force that stormed the U.S. Capitol on Jan. 6 was not really a "mob." At its core was a group of terrorists who wanted to kill members of Congress they deemed to be Trump's enemies, with the goal of nullifying the results of the 2020 presidential election. They may have come close to achieving that objective. Likewise, as new "revelations" have shown, Trump and his allies came closer to overthrowing democracy than many among the country's political class (and the public at large) would like to accept. The danger has not ended; the Republican coup attempt is ongoing. To describe Trump's attack force as "terrorists" is better and more accurate language, but still lacks precision. What kind of terrorists were they? As Robert P. Jones, one of America's foremost experts on religion and politics, recently told Salon, a significant number of the attackers on Jan. 6 were Christian nationalists and white supremacists: It was remarkable to me. There were Bibles, there were crosses, there were Bible verses on...
    THE warlord leader of the Nigerian militant group Boko Haram has blown himself up during a deadly shootout with rivals, say reports today. Abubakar Shekau - once rejected by ISIS for being too radical - "killed himself" amid a bloody clash with the Islamic State West Africa Province (ISWAP). 4Abubakar Shekau was once rejected by ISIS for being too radical Reuters said it had heard an audio recording made by the ISWAP which said Shekau died during a battle sometime around May 18. He reportedly died after detonating an explosive device, according to a person on the recording who identified himself as ISWAP leader Abu Musab al Barnawi. Shekau's apparent death marks a major shift in Nigeria's 12-year-old jihadist insurgency which has killed more than 40,000 people and displaced around two million people. Under Shekau, Boko Haram staged bombings, kidnappings and prison breaks. And from 2014, it began overrunning towns in a bid to create an Islamic State under Sharia law....

    Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin said the United States will do what is necessary to "protect" troops overseas after a targeted missile strike last month in Iraq. “We’ll strike, if that’s what we think we need to do, at a time and place of our own choosing. We demand the right to protect our troops,” Austin said on ABC's This Week on Sunday. “What they should draw from this, again, is that we’re going to defend our troops, and our response will be thoughtful," he continued. "It will be appropriate. We would hope that they would choose to do the right things.” Austin's comments follow a Feb. 15 missile strike that injured five U.S. contractors in Erbil, the capital of Iraqi Kurdistan. One contractor died of a cardiac episode while taking shelter during the bombardment, and at least 10 munitions detonated during the assault.

    Georgia Senate Democrat candidate Raphael Warnock in 2019 called for the mass release of prisoners, saying, “Somebody’s got to open up the jails and let our children go.” In 2013, Warnock called for the creation of a “militant church.” “It’s not enough to decriminalize marijuana; somebody’s got to open up the jail cells and let our children go,” Warnock said during a “Let My People Go: Ending Mass Incarceration” conference at Ebenezer Baptist Church in June last year. Warnock also called for the restoration of communities he claimed were negatively affected by the war on drugs. The Georgia Democrat also described incarceration as an immoral form of “human bondage.” “Every form of human bondage injures the soul of the oppressed. Inflates the self-understanding of the oppressor. And insults the Sovereignty of God,” he added. Warnock hopes to unseat Sen. Kelly Loeffler (R-GA) during the Georgia Senate runoffs in January. Warnock’s comment also mirrors his remarks in November 2013 when he gave a keynote speech at a “Rights and Religions” symposium held at the Union Theological Institute. Warnock gave...
    On the most recent episode of WWE color commentator Corey Graves’ After the Bell podcast, Big E revealed that there were two former superstars — Alicia Fox and Damien Sandow — who were previously thought of as potential additions to The New Day. As quoted by WrestlingNews.co on Thursday, Big E discussed multiple topics with Graves, including his recent split from The New Day when he was drafted by SmackDown while his two stablemates, Kofi Kingston and Xavier Woods, went to Monday Night Raw. Later on, he looked back on the faction’s beginnings in 2014, when the three members thought it might be a good idea to recruit a few other individuals. Back then, the group was still being teased as a Nation of Domination-style militant stable, as opposed to the fun-loving trio that fans would eventually see on a long-term basis. “I remember thinking Alicia Fox was someone we wanted to add because at the time she was doing the stuff with the tantrums. This was when we were more of the militant New Day. That idea was very...
    The president of San Francisco State University has defended her decision to allow a talk to go ahead featuring Palestinian militant, Leila Khaled, who was among those to hijack a flight to New York City in the 1970s.  Khaled is scheduled to speak at a virtual class event hosted by the university next week despite outrage and objections from Jewish students and groups who have said they are 'deeply distressed' by her inclusion.  The event, which is titled 'Whose Narratives? Gender, Justice and Resistance', has been organized by the university's Arab and Muslim Ethnicities and Diasporas Studies program.  The talk has been billed as a 'historic roundtable conversation with Palestinian feminist, militant and leader', according to one of the advertisements.  Khaled is a member of the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine, which is a group designated by the US Department of State as a terror organization.  Lynn Mahoney, the president of San Francisco State University, has defended her decision to allow a talk to go ahead featuring Palestinian militant, Leila Khaled, who was among those to...
    THE next generation’s future will be in tatters if schools are not reopened next month. So it is a scandal that militant union leaders are encouraging teachers to put themselves ahead of struggling kids. 4The next generation’s future will be in tatters if schools are not reopened next monthCredit: Alamy A National Education Union checklist suggests teachers should “escalate” action if schools fail to satisfy them about 200 “safety” conditions. In effect, the union, led by Corbynite wrecker Mary Bousted, is holding schools to ransom. Its demands include a guarantee that staff will work no extra hours, paid leave or home working for teachers who have to quarantine after a foreign holiday, and nitpicking over relaxed dress codes. Contrast this whingeing “work to rule” attitude with the selflessness of emergency services heroes working around the clock in the pandemic. 4In effect, the union, led by Corbynite wrecker Mary Bousted, is holding schools to ransom If medics made similar demands, the NHS would never have got a grip of Covid-19.

    The newest Russia-themed firestorm has intensified, with The New York Times and the Trump administration doubling down on their clashing claims. In response to a Times report citing unnamed officials claiming the president was briefed on a suspected Russian bounty plot to kill Americans, President Trump blasted the “phony Times hit job” Sunday and said “nobody briefed or told” him about the alleged plot. Now the paper has published the date of the alleged briefing, citing two unnamed officials. “American intelligence officials have concluded that a Russian military intelligence unit secretly offered bounties to Taliban-linked militants for killing coalition forces in Afghanistan — including targeting American troops — amid the peace talks to end the long-running war there, according to officials briefed on the matter,” The New York Times reported Friday. The intelligence finding “was briefed to President Trump, and the White House’s National Security Council discussed the problem at an interagency meeting in late March,” the Times reported, citing the sources. After multiple White House officials denied the claim, Trump responded in a pair of posts early Sunday. “Nobody briefed...
    A group of militants armed with grenades and automatic rifles laid siege to the Pakistan Stock Exchange on Monday, killing at least three people before being taken out by special police forces. The attack on the building located in the heart of Karachi's financial district, where the Pakistan State Bank is located as well as the headquarters of several national and international financial institutions, left two guards and a police officer dead, officials say. A third guard is reported to be in critical condition. Rizwan Ahmend, a police official at the scene, told the Associated Press that after opening fire at an entrance gate, the four gunmen entered the stock exchange grounds. He said that after the attack was over, food supplies were found on the bodies of the gunmen, indicating they may have planned a long operation.

    CAIRO (AP) — Egypt on Saturday executed a Libyan militant convicted of plotting an attack that killed at least 16 police officers in 2017, the military said. Abdel-Rahim al-Mosmari was hanged in a Cairo prison after a military appeals court upheld his death sentence last week, the military said. The deadly attack southwest of the Egyptian capital took place in October 2017. Al-Mosmari was arrested a month after the attack. He was tried by a military court and sentenced to death in November last year. The court also sentenced 15 other defendants for their involvement in the attack, including 10 in absentia, to life in prison. Another 17 got 5- to 15-year sentences. Al-Mosmari was from Libya’s eastern city of Derna, which served as a safe haven for years for militant groups before the self-styled Libyan Arab Armed Forces took control of it early in 2018. The LAAF is led by military commander Khalifa Hifter, an ally to Egypt. The defendants were accused of plotting and taking part in the 2017 attack on police forces as they raided the militants’...
    LONDON (AP) — An Islamic State militant who encouraged mass murder in Germany has been sentenced to at least nine years in prison in Britain. Fatah Abdullah, 35, had been charged under Britain’s terrorism laws with encouraging another person to plow a car into crowds, attack people with a meat cleaver and detonate bombs, “with the aim of killing and/or causing serious injury.” The incitement took place between April 9 and Dec. 11, 2018. Abdullah, who was born in Iran but was living in the northern English city of Newcastle after receiving asylum, was arrested after a joint investigation by British and German police. He pleaded guilty in March to inciting terrorism overseas and engaging in conduct in preparation to assist others to commit terrorist acts. Copyright © 2020 The Associated Press. All rights reserved.

    PESHAWAR, Pakistan (AP) — Pakistani police said Tuesday their counter-terrorism forces, acting on intelligence, raided a suspected militant hideout in the country’s northwest, triggering an intense shootout in which four suspects were killed. Police also seized assault rifles and other weapons in the overnight operation. The suspects had gathered at a home in the city of Peshawar, the capital of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa province, to plan attacks, said Sannaullah Abbasi, the province’s police chief. The operation was successful and “saved many innocent people from possible attacks,” he said. Abbasi provided no further details, but other officials said the slain militants apparently belonged to a banned group. Khyber Pakhtunkhwa province borders Afghanistan and has witnessed dozens of militant attacks in recent years, most of them claimed by the Pakistani Taliban. Copyright © 2020 The Associated Press.

    Secret efforts to groom and recruit teenagers by a neo-Nazi militant group have been exposed by covert recordings. They capture senior members of The Base interviewing young applicants and discussing how to radicalise them. The FBI has described the group as seeking to unite white supremacists around the world and incite a race war. The recordings were passed to US civil rights organisation, the Southern Poverty Law Center, before some were shared with BBC One's Panorama. Rinaldo Nazzaro, founder of The Base, is a 47-year-old American. Earlier this year the BBC revealed he was directing the organisation from his upmarket flat in St. Petersburg, Russia. The interviews, which took place via conference call on an encrypted app, followed a pattern - prospective members were asked by Nazzaro about their personal history, ethnicity, radicalisation journey and experience with weapons, before a panel of senior members posed their own questions.

    JAKARTA, Indonesia (AP) — Indonesian police fatally shot a suspected Islamic militant who killed an officer at a police station with a samurai-style sword, officials said Monday. National Police spokesman Ahmad Ramadhan said the suspect was shot as he tried to attack two other policemen after fatally slashing the first officer. The suspect died on the way to the hospital. The attack occurred early Monday at the South Daha police station in South Kalimantan province, he said. “One of the police officers died at the crime scene and the suspect was still trying to attack other officers. If the officer did not shoot, he would have killed more,” Ramadhan said. “We are still investigating if the suspect was related to or inspired by the Islamic State group.” He said police seized the sword, an Islamic State-style flag and a small Quran. South Kalimantan police spokesman Mohammad Rifai said the suspect burned a police car at the station before attacking the officers. Indonesia has carried out a sustained crackdown on Islamic militants since bombings on the tourist island of Bali...
