Convicted 9/11 Terrorism Set Free in Syria

I’m deeply troubled by reports that convicted 9/11 terrorist Mohammed Haydar Zammar has been set free in Syria. Zammar was being held by the Assad regime while serving a 12-year sentence. Recently, it seems that Zammar was released in a prisoner swap deal with the Syrian terrorist group Ahrar al-Sham.

Zammar is said to have been personally invited by Osama bin Laden to a terrorist training camp in 1996, and was the organizer for a travel service that shuttled terrorists to the region before the Sept. 11 attack on the United States. Zammar helped to recruit convicted 9/11 terrorist Mohammed Atta. Letting dangerous old-school terrorists like Zammar roam free is a dangerous proposition.   Read more »

Immigration Summit in Houston to Focus on Human Trafficking

An unfortunate reality of the construction industry is that there are many instances of worker abuse. Much of this has been documented on Construction Citizen over the years. Terrible working conditions, worker misclassification, lack of health insurance and workers’ compensation insurance, and other problems honestly keep me up at night. But, I was only fairly recently alerted to just how prevalent human trafficking is in construction.   Read more »

Protecting Your Identity Online

Last week was National Consumer Protection Week, and it’s an important reminder to get informed about how to avoid scams, maximize your online security, and protect your identity. Social media and cell phones make it easier than ever before for thieves to take advantage of you, so this issue is becoming more important every day. In fact, the U.S. Bureau of Justice Statistics estimates that

This Handgun Instructor’s Certification Should Be PERMANENTLY Revoked

We do not need instructors that are more of a danger to concealed carry students than the criminals they are training to defend themselves against.

Ohio firearms instructor Terry Dunlap has had TWO negligent discharges where he accidentally shot people in his presence. The most recent occurred during the concealed handgun class he was teaching. He shot Michael Piemonte, 27, of Pataskala, while he was demonstrating a .38-caliber handgun. The bullet hit Piemonte’s right arm. The shooting occurred on Aug. 10 toward the end of a 12-hour day of training in gun handling and safety.   Read more »

To Respond To Russian Aggression, Sell U.S. Natural Gas To Ukraine

Vladimir Putin invaded Georgia. Now, the Russian bear is after Ukraine.

Ukraine is almost totally dependent on Russia for energy. Russian imperialism has proven that it is willing to use gas as a political and economic weapon to intimidate its neighbors. Twice it turned off the fuel switch in Ukraine, and I was even in Ukraine the last time Putin turned off the gas during winter. It was cold.

Many other European nations are also at the mercy of the Kremlin when it comes to energy. We can help European countries who depend on imperialist Russia for energy by selling them natural gas from America.

The DoD Should Look at Every Penny Before Cutting a Soldier

On Thursday, I spoke at the National Security Action Conference against the Department of Defense’s recent budget decisions, Putin’s aggression in Ukraine, President Maduro’s oppression of Venezuelans’ freedoms, and a nuclear-armed Iran. 

Everyone would agree that there is waste, fraud, and abuse at the Pentagon, like any large bureaucracy…Yesterday I had the opportunity to question Secretary Hagel.

Detroit’s nation of takers! (video)

This Detroit squatter story is unbelievable on so many levels: home invaders had the complete audacity to blame a home owner for leaving her house? What?

The Fox News reporter keeps it “real,” including her lingo.

But what is really crazy is what the neighbors had to say about people using somebody’s house — their words and attitude are symbolic of the Obama Nation, and Liberalism in general.   Read more »

Iran's Support for Terrorism Worldwide

Recent attention on Iran has focused on its nuclear weapons program--but this is not the whole picture.

Iran is also the world's largest state sponsor of terrorism.

Using both its own military operatives and its proxy Hezbollah, Iran has planned attacks around the globe.   Read more »
