Taming Our Planet

The last few weeks has the planet rumbling on its axis. There was a devastating earthquake in Nepal, more ISIS violence in the Middle East and hoodlums ruling the roost in Garland, Texas, and Baltimore and other American cities. So what do we do? Says Bill Whittle, “What we need to realize, is that after centuries of trying to make kind, sharing noble new people, all we’ve gotten gotten is the death of about 1 or 200,000 million of the old people in the process, and the timeless, implacable eternal enemies of natural disaster and violent people remain.” Tune in to hear Whittle’s solution in this edition of “Afterburner” on PJTV.

Jihadists Target Olympics

Jihadists get in some giant slalom practice ahead of the 2014 Winter Olympics in Sochi, Russia. Although this bunch looks more like downhill racers because as soon as they start flapping their jowls, it’s all downhill from there. Score them as “zeroes” for originality.

Al-Qaeda’s Liquid Bomb

Al-Qaeda terrorists may have developed undetectable liquid bombs prompting the recent decision by America to evacuate its citizens from Yemen. According to senior US officials, the explosive would be applied wet to clothing and then detonated when dry. Security experts fear it would be completely undetectable at airports around the world.

Hasan Faces Death Penalty

Prosecutors are seeking the death penalty in the case of Nidal Hasan, the Army major who killed 13 unarmed soldiers and injured 32 civilian workers in a 2009 shooting rampage at Fort Hood. The US military has not executed a prisoner since 1961, but Hasan’s prosecutors are building a case that it’s justified for Hasan on grounds he carried out a premeditated terrorist attack on American soil.

The New al-Qaeda Threat

Said to be on the ropes after the death of Osama bin Laden, al-Qaeda now appears to be in an ascendent phase again — the US closing more than 20 embassies worldwide rather than leave them open and vulnerable to terrorist assault. The Five’s Greg Gutfeld comments on the US government’s response to this global resurgence of terrorism.

‘Serious’ Al-Qaeda Alert

The al-Qaeda affiliate in Yemen apparently sparked the threat that led the US to close 22 embassies and to issue a worldwide travel alert.



US Foreign Policy in Shambles

With 21 US embassies and consulates closing throughout the entire Middle East, Syndicated Columnist Charles Krauthammer weighs in with his perspective on the President Obama’s gaffe-filled foreign policies.

A Terrorist By Any Other Name

Government officials tried to downplay the Fort Hood shootings in which Nidal Hasan gunned down 13 people and injured 30 others on Nov. 5, 2009. But what was euphemistically described as an incident of workplace violence was, in fact, a blatant act of terrorism on US soil. Anyone who doubts otherwise should listen to the words of Hasan, still unrepentant and still a violent extremist and blood-thirsty terrorist, regardless if the government feels strangely compelled to cast him as some sort of misguided Boy Scout.

CIA Silencing Benghazi Sources

Obama Administration officials have dismissed Benghazi as a phony scandal. But if so, why has the CIA engaged in a massive and unprecedented campaign of intimidation designed to silence anyone and everyone who might know the truth about what transpired at Benghazi when armed terrorists attacked the US consulate?

In breaking the news, CNN said that essentially, the CIA is giving polygraph tests every month to more than a dozen CIA employees who were on the ground in Benghazi during the attack. Meanwhile, Great Britain’s The Telegraph claims the agency is trying to prevent its operatives from discussing the incident with the press or members of Congress in an attempt to hide details of an arms-smuggling operation.

Egyptian Army Strikes

Egypt’s generals launched a wide-scale operation against Islamist militants in the northern Sinai aimed at eliminating terrorist activity on the peninsula. Meanwhile, supporters of deposed Egyptian President Mohammed Morsi and his party the Islamist Muslim Brotherhood continued their sit-ins and massive rallies in Cairo into the weekend, a day after at least 65 people were killed in clashes with pro-army supporters and security forces countrywide.
