CIA Director John Brennan said that the suicide bombings in Istanbul, Turkey bore the signs of ISIS and should serve as a warning to Americans that the terrorist group is aiming to carry out similar attacks in the U.S. “I’d be surprised if [ISIS] is not trying to carry out that kind of attack in the United States,” Brennan told Yahoo News Tuesday evening. Although no organization has claimed responsibility for the bombings at Istanbul Ataturk Airport Tuesday night, Brennan said the method of attack fits the profile of the terror group. Three suicide attackers wearing explosive vests opened fire and blew themselves up in the airport’s arrival hall and a nearby parking lot, killing 41 people and wounding 239. The coordinated massacre echoed the ISIS bombings at Brussels Airport three months earlier. Turkish Prime Minister Binali Yildirim told reporters hours after the Istanbul bombings that initial findings implicated ISIS. While the Kurdistan Workers’ Party, or PKK, has targeted police and military personnel with bombs during the past year, officials said ISIS is more likely behind Tuesday’s attack. “I am worried from the standpoint of an intelligence professional who looks at the capabilities of [ISIS] … and their determination to kill as many as people as possible and to carry out attacks abroad,” Brennan said. He said ISIS has so far been unable to attack the U.S. directly because of effective homeland security and intelligence measures, but warned that the militants would continue their attempts to infiltrate American defenses. Director of National Intelligence James Clapper raised similar concerns last month. He told CNN in May that ISIS has the capability to conduct a large-scale Paris-style attack in the U.S.
Of course it does. Here at The Daily Buzz we’ve been issuing the same warning from day one. And yet, our idiot President wants to continue to import Muslim so-called “refugees” by the hundreds of thousands, without even properly vetting them! How insane is that?!? We need to put a halt to ALL immigration (both legal AND illegal) until we can get some type of control over our borders and a properly vetted immigration that benefits the national security and economic interests of America. What Obama is doing is destroying out national infrastructure, and unnecessarily putting actual American citizens at great risk.
Russian President Vladimir Putin’s security agencies allegedly have ramped up their intimidation of American diplomats across Europe in ways that would be illegal in the United States: harassment, breaking and entering, and in at least one case, killing a man’s dog. Numerous diplomats said Russian intruders would rearrange furniture or turn on lights and televisions in their homes before leaving, according to a series of memos reviewed by Washington Post columnist Josh Rogin. One diplomat accused an intruder of defecating on his carpet. Russia stepped up its intimidation campaign in 2014, after the U.S. hit Moscow with sanctions in response to Russia’s takeover of Crimea, State Dept. spokesman John Kirby told the columnist. Most of the incidents unfolded in Moscow, but others reportedly took place in cities outside Russia. “Harassment and surveillance of our diplomatic personnel in Moscow by security personnel and traffic police have increased significantly,” State Dept. spokeswoman Elizabeth Trudeau told reporters Monday. She said other U.S. allies reported similar findings, and that Secretary of State John Kerry has raised the issue with Putin. An intruder broke into the home of a U.S. defense official in Moscow and killed his dog during President Obama’s first term, officials told Rogin. Diplomats also accused Russian security workers of slashing tires and following the children of former U.S. ambassador Michael McFaul as they went to school. “Since the return of Putin, Russia has been engaged in an increasingly aggressive gray war across Europe. Now it’s in retaliation for Western sanctions because of Ukraine,” former U.S. ambassador to the Czech Republic Norm Eisen said. “They are hitting American diplomats literally where they live.”
Wow.. Sounds like State Dept personnel abroad need to hunker down for a while…and that we should return the favor. Vlad the bully misses the good ol’ Soviet days when he ran the KGB. If he wants to play hardball like this, I say we fight back and turn the heat up on their diplomats. If we do nothing, they’ll view that as a sign of weakness. And, that would NOT be good.
Representative Charles Rangel (D-NY-13) has declared that average citizens don’t need guns — but he and his congressional colleagues “deserve” to be surrounded by them for protection. The Daily Caller column was written by Kerry Picket, who asked Rangel what he thought about the difficult and circuitous path to securing a New York City carry permit. Rangel said: ” I’m glad to you say that very few people can get it. We don’t need that many guns … Overall if it’s difficult to get a concealed weapon permit, I’m glad to hear that.” Picket pressed the point by pointing out that celebrities and the “very wealthy” appear to have no problem getting a permit, while average, law-abiding Americans are forced to move through the city unarmed. She also suggested that “many” of Rangel’s constituents would “want to carry a concealed carry” weapon if they could get a permit. Rangel brushed off Picket’s suggestion, stating his position that “law-abiding citizens just shouldn’t have to carry a gun.” Picket pointed out that Congress is surrounded by armed security for their defense and Rangel said, “Well, that’s a little different. I think we deserve, I think we need to be protected down here.”
And that is why ol’ Charlie is a poster-child for an elitist, self-righteous, entitlement-minded, limousine liberal. Charlie thinks he is entitled to have a protection that you shouldn’t be able to have, the Second Amendment be damned. That’s the attitude these anti-gun, liberal Democrats really have! The duplicity and hypocrisy is truly breathtaking. It’s kinda like Obama making some speech and taking a dig at Trump about the wall on our southern Border that Trump wants to see built (as do we, here at The Daily Buzz)…and how it won’t provide any security… And yet, Obama lives in the White House surrounded by a tall fence that he will be making even taller and harder to scale! If such a fence doesn’t provide any security, Mr. President, then why are you having the fence YOU have around YOUR home built even higher? Of course the dominantly liberal mainstream media would NEVER ask a question like that to Obama, as it would undermine their guy…and their similar liberal agenda.
