    Whom Are We at War With?

    On the ninth anniversary of the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks that killed nearly 3,000 Americans, a new documentary accuses the Obama administration of not facing reality when it comes to terrorism. “America at Risk: The War With No Name,” presented by Citizens United and hosted by Newt and Callista Gingrich, … More

    Remembering 9/11

    A mangled piece of the 360-foot TV and radio antenna that once topped the World Trade Tower North now stands in Washington D.C.’s Newseum, surrounded by 127 front pages of newspapers from around the world that reported on that fateful day, nine years ago.

    When Will Congress Wake Up on Homeland Security?

    It’s been 9 years since the 9/11 attacks. America is still being attacked—the Times Square and Christmas Day plots are the most recent examples.  Congress, however, continues to act like it is still September 10, 2001.  For instance: It continues to ignore key 9/11 Commission recommendations—the Commission emphasized that Congress … More

    Yes, Virginia, Supporting Terrorists IS a Crime

    On June 21, in Humanitarian Law Project v.

    Open to Attack: U.S. Land in Mexican Drug Smugglers' Hands

    Nothing is more vital to a nation’s sovereignty than its ability to protect and control its territories, and that’s why it’s so appalling that the federal government essentially has given control over U.S. land to Mexican drug and smuggling gangs. Under Article I, Section 8 of the Constitution, the federal … More

    Newsflash: Terrorists are Attacking Americans

    Attempted terrorist attacks are on the rise and we should expect more to come according to a recent memo from the Department of Homeland Security. Three weeks after the country saw the attempted Times Square bombing, an unclassified DHS intelligence memo asserts not only that “the number and pace of … More

    Guest Blogger: Rep. Pete King (R-NY) on Al-Qaeda

    In some respects, the recent attempted Times Square car bombing and the arrest of Faisal Shahzad, a naturalized citizen, point to a significant success in America’s Global War on Terror. In the aftermath of 9/11, our government quickly reformed the Intelligence Community and established the Department of Homeland Security, moves … More

    Missing the Long War

    The names of war do not matter all that much. After all we won the Cold War even though it sounded like a battle against hypothermia. Some wars don’t even get named until after the fact…like the 30 Years war (which was actually longer than 30 years). Renaming a war … More
