Charleston’s Unity Teachable Lesson for the Nation

By Victor Maggio

In the small town of Charleston, South Carolina a crazed gunman shot and killed nine people during a Bible study session at one of the nation’s oldest African-American churches. Days after the horrific murders the community decided it was time to start the healing process, thousands of Charleston residents of all races gathered at the Arthur Ravenel.JR.Bridge in a show of unity, this was unlike anything this reporter has ever seen before, it was very moving to say the least. Masses gathered at opposite ends of the bridge and walked the 2 mile distance to meet in the middle high above the city of Charleston to pay their respects to the nine victims and to also show the world what faith based community really means.

This community of 138.000 wanted to show the world forgiveness and unity is the way to walk a community towards healing in the face of extreme tragedy. Many of the residents that attended the bridge rally told me unity is the pathway to healing not violence or the destruction of their community.

What I witnessed on the bridge moved me unlike any other story has before, I was glad to see the haters and the mainstream media did not get their way in destroying another community through lies and false narratives, I was overjoyed to see this community was left intact and not left destroyed like Ferguson and Baltimore, I believe there is a valuable lesson for the nation to be learned here in Charleston SC, and that is faith and community trumps the haters.

Due to State Cuts Illinois Suburban Mayors Scrambling for Funds


Suburban municipal leaders upset with Gov. Bruce Rauner’s plan to cut their share of state income taxes now fear they’ll lose the money even sooner. About a dozen mayors and trustees met with Rauner in Springfield Tuesday afternoon to explain their opposition to slashing their share of Local Government Distributive Funds in half.

Instead, they discovered Rauner wants to move up the effective date from July. “He wants it to happen right away,” said Mount Prospect Mayor Arlene Juracek, one of the delegation. Alongside her were the mayors of Schaumburg, Hoffman Estates, Des Plaines and Evanston, and trustees from Mount Prospect and Arlington Heights, among others.

The cuts would mean millions of dollars lost for suburban towns, many of which have already set their budgets for the year. “I’m concerned there’s a real danger we’re going to lose a chunk of funds between now and the end of June,” Juracek said. “We could see some immediate revenue loss, but we can’t really pin anybody down on specific numbers.”

Rauner first proposed halving municipal income tax receipts out of the state budget starting July 1, but several state programs will run out of money sooner than that. Now, he is looking to plug more immediate holes, and suburban mayors are more worried than they were before. “It’s definitely on the table,” Hoffman Estates Mayor Bill McLeod said after the meeting. “We’re just making the best case we can.”

Juracek said the governor has two problems to fix: the $1.6 billion hole in the budget for the rest of 2015, and the budgets for 2016 and beyond. Still, “We explained to him the difficulty we’ll be in if revenues are cut,” she said.

Juracek said Mount Prospect, like some other towns, could use cash reserves to cover the cuts in the short term, but not if the 50 percent cut becomes permanent. While she said the 30-minute meeting with Rauner went well, the problems are far from solved. Continue Reading

Two Police Officers Gunned Down Outside Ferguson Police Department

(Reuters) – Two police officers were shot during a protest outside the Ferguson, Missouri police headquarters early on Thursday, police said, just hours after the city’s police chief quit following a damning justice report into his department.

St. Louis County Police Chief Jon Belmar told reporters that a 41-year-old officer from his department was struck in the shoulder and a 32-year-old officer from the nearby Webster Groves Police Department was hit in the face around midnight as the crowd was starting to break up.

He said he did not know the conditions of the officers, whom he did not identify, but said they were both conscious and being treated at a local hospital.

“These police officers were standing there and they were shot, just because they were police officers,” Belmar said.

The St. Louis County Police Department Twitter account had earlier said both of the shot officers were from their department.

A few dozen demonstrators scrambled following the sound of gunfire around midnight, with some screaming, “They hit a cop,” according to a Reuters photographer at the scene.

Several dozen protesters had gathered in front of the Ferguson police department earlier on Wednesday night, just hours after the city’s police chief, Thomas Jackson, announced his resignation.
The demonstration was largely peaceful, but later on some two dozen officers clad in riot gear faced off against the protesters, who had relocated to the street. At least two people were taken into custody at the time.

Belmar said that the shooter was “embedded” in the group of demonstrators who were standing across from the officers at the time.

UPDATE: This video shows the cops being fired on in the last few minutes of the clip.
The first two hours shows protesters verbally abusing police nonstop.

Al-Qaeda in Syria Overrun Obama-Backed Rebel Groups Base Seizing Many Specialized US Weapons


US policy towards Syria has suffered a new blow with the dissolution of the Hazm movement, its favoured and best-known rebel group – raising tough questions about Washington’s strategy and limiting its future options.

Hazm (“Determination”) announced its demise at the weekend after fierce battles with Jabhat al Nusra (JAN), the al-Qaida-linked group and jihadi rival of the Islamic State (Isis) that is fighting Bashar al-Assad, the Syrian president. It said it wanted to avoid further bloodshed after clashes with JAN killed dozens of men on both sides.

Hazm is one of several dozen Syrian rebel groups that have received US anti-tank Tow missiles and training in the past and has been described as the “poster boy” for the moderate opposition at a time when attention is focused sharply on Isis. But other elements of the Free Syrian Army (FSA), such as Fursan al-Haq, still receive discreet American support.

“People are misrepresenting this as Hazm being the last of the moderates,” said independent analyst Malik al-Abdeh. “It was like a boy band created by Simon Cowell – a dream team of moderates put together by the US and others working with it. But people don’t really care that much about them.”


Video footage showed JAN fighters posing with Tow missiles captured when it overran Hazm HQ in Idlib.

Tension between Hazm and JAN – whose members have been bitter enemies for a long time – has been on the rise for months after Hazm sided with another FSA group, the Syria Revolutionary Front, when JAN was fighting that militia and expelled it from Idlib province. But Syria watchers say that Hazm provoked JAN by kidnapping and killing some of its top leaders, including its emir, Abu Eissa al-Tabqa.

Hazm has said it will now join forces with the Shamiah Front, formed to defend besieged rebel-held areas of Aleppo, after Assad launched an offensive to encircle them. The Shamiah front includes hardline Salafist factions as well as more moderate brigades like the Muslim Brotherhood-linked Mujahideen Army and another US-backed outfit. Continue Reading

ISIS Barbarians Trick Mom Into Eating Her Own Kidnapped Son


Islamic State brutes fed a distraught woman searching for her kidnapped son some meat and rice – and then told her she had just eaten her son, according to a British man who joined the fight against ISIS.

Yasir Abdulla, 36, of Yorkshire left his wife and four kids to battle the maniacal extremists in his Kurdish homeland, The Sun reported.

“I hate IS because of what happened to an old Kurdish woman from a nearby tribe,” he said. “Her son was captured by IS fighters and taken as a prisoner to Mosul. She was determined to find her son and went to IS headquarters and asked to see him.”

He said the thugs told her to rest after her long journey and offered her the food before taking her to her son.

“They brought her cups of tea and fed her a meal of cooked meat, rice and soup. She thought they were kind,” he said.” But they had killed him and chopped him up and after she finished the meal and asked to see her son they laughed and said, ‘You’ve just eaten him,’” Abdulla told The Sun.

Abdulla decided to take on the murderous group after they came within six miles of his home in Kurdistan.

He said he bought combat fatigues online and an assault rifle in his Kurdish hometown – then joined other volunteers on the front lines.

“We want to attack IS and drive them out forever but we can’t unless the Peshmerga and the Americans say we can,” he said, referring to the military forces of Iraqi Kurdistan.

Abdulla described the jihadists’ terror tactics, including slaughtering prisoners in bonfires.

“They dig a trench, put dry tree branches and leaves in there, set it alight and then throw prisoners on so they burn alive,” he said. “IS are very good at making people scared. If they make one person scared then that person will make another person scared and soon everyone is scared of ISIS. Continue Reading

Court Documents Reveal Iran Has had a Relationship with Al-Qaeda For Years

This week, prosecutors in New York introduced eight documents recovered in Osama bin Laden’s compound in Pakistan as evidence in the trial of a terrorism suspect. The U.S. government accuses Abid Naseer of taking part in al Qaeda’s scheme to attack targets in Europe and New York City. And prosecutors say the documents are essential for understanding the scope of al Qaeda’s plotting.

More than 1 million documents and files were captured by the Navy Seals who raided bin Laden’s safe house in Abbottabad, Pakistan in May 2011. One year later, in May 2012, the Obama administration released just 17 of them.

While there is some overlap between the files introduced as evidence in Brooklyn and those that were previously made public in 2012, much of what is in the trial exhibits had never been made public before.

The files do not support the view, promoted by some in the Obama administration, that bin Laden was in “comfortable retirement,” “sidelined,” or “a lion in winter” in the months leading up to his death.

On the contrary, bin Laden is asked to give his order on a host of issues, ranging from the handling of money to the movement of terrorist operatives.

Some of the key revelations in the newly-released bin Laden files relate to al Qaeda’s dealings with Iran and presence in Afghanistan.

A top al Qaeda operative asked bin Laden for permission to relocate to Iran in June 2010 as he plotted attacks around the world. That operative, Yunis al Mauritani, was a senior member of al Qaeda’s so-called “external operations” team, and plotted to launch Mumbai-style attacks in Europe. Continue Reading

Obama was as Wrong about 9/11 as he is about ISIS


That President Obama won’t call it Islamic terrorism; that he believes we shouldn’t be on a “high horse” because America and Christians have done bad things; that Muslims are victims of “bigotry and prejudice”; that his State Department says it’s the lack of jobs, not religion, that fuels ISIS, should come as no surprise.

After all, he said the same thing about 9/11.

In 2004, Obama released an update of his 1995 memoir, “Dreams from My Father,” with a little-noticed new preface about the attacks.


“On September 11, 2001,” Obama wrote, “…history returned with a vengeance; in fact, as Faulkner reminds us, the past is never dead and buried — it isn’t even past.”

“This collective history, this past, directly touches my own,” he added. “Not merely because, as a consequence of 9/11, my name is an irresistible target of mocking websites from overzealous Republican operatives. But also because the underlying struggle between worlds of plenty and worlds of want…is the struggle set forth, on a miniature scale, in this book,” which at its core is an indictment against Western imperialism, racism and colonialism.

Obama goes on to say he identifies with the “desperation and disorder of the powerless,” and how they can “easily slip into violence and despair.”


They are just a bunch of disenfranchised kids that just needed JOBS……

“I know, I have seen, the desperation and disorder of the powerless; how it twists the lives of children on the streets of Jakarta or Nairobi in much the same way as it does the lives of children on Chicago’s South Side, how narrow the path is for them between humiliation and untrammeled fury, how easily they slip into violence and despair,” he wrote. “I know that the response of the powerful to this disorder — alternating as it does between a dull complacency and, when the disorder spills out of its proscribed confines, a steady, unthinking application of force, of longer prison sentences and more sophisticated military hardware — is inadequate to the task.”

Obama implies terrorism is simply a spasm of violence which erupts among the poor in response to that desperation. Continue Reading

Bengali Jihadists Take Responsibility for Murder of US Blogger


The Islamists said Avijat Roy was targeted because he was American and because of his “crime against Islam.”

Prothom Alo reported:

Ansar Bangla-7, believed to be an Islamist outfit, has claimed responsibility for killing writer and blogger Avijit Roy, the police said on Friday.

The organization, which has no visible political activities, has given a posting on the Twitter claiming its responsibility of the attack, the Ramna zone assistant commissioner of police SM Shibli Noman said.

The police officer observed that the attacks on writer Prof Humayun Azad and blogger Razib were also carried out in the same manner.

Avijit was hacked to death by a group of unidentified assailants near Teachers-Students’ Centre (TSC) on Dhaka University campus on Thursday night.

First Photo of ISIS Butcher ‘Jihadi John’ Revealed


The first known photograph has emerged of Mohammed Emwazi – the Islamic State militant known as “Jihadi John” – as an adult.

Showing him with a goatee beard and wearing a Pittsburgh Pirates baseball cap, the image is revealed in student records from his time at the University of Westminster.

It comes after the 26-year-old who became the masked face of the notorious terror organization was identified as the figure seen in several videos of hostages being beheaded.

Sky News can also exclusively reveal details of Emwazi’s academic achievements during his stint at the university in London’s Cavendish campus, between 2006 and 2009.

According to the document, he passed all but two of the modules in his Information Systems with Business Management degree, for which he was awarded a lower second, honors (2:2).


The record shows he was awarded a “condoned credit; retake” status for modules in Business Information Systems and Managing Business Organizations.

Earlier, a photograph had emerged showing the smiling face of a eight-year-old Emwazi sitting with classmates at St Magdalene’s Church of England School in west London.

An unnamed classmate told The Sun newspaper that Emwazi, who reportedly came from a devout family, was the only Muslim in the class and would demonstrate Arabic writing to the class. Continue Reading

U.S. Air Force Officials, “U.S. Air Superiority is Weaker than Ever Before”


The U.S. Air Force has a quarter of the number of fighter squadrons it did 25 years ago and two-thirds of the active duty airmen, a drop that threatens U.S. air superiority, defense officials told lawmakers on Friday.

‘Enough is enough,’ Air Force Secretary Deborah James told lawmakers in the House of Representatives as she defended a Pentagon budget request that exceeds federal spending caps. ‘Given the state of the world … the number one thing we have to stop is this downsizing.’

But members of the defense appropriations subcommittee said President Barack Obama’s 2016 Pentagon base budget of $534 billion exceeded spending caps by nearly $35 billion and would have to be cut.

Some $10 billion of that would have to come from the Air Force request, they said.

‘The budget he (Obama) submitted … frankly is politically … a fantasy,’ said Representative Tom Cole of Oklahoma. ‘It’s not going to pass, and he knows that.’

Cole said he hoped lawmakers ultimately would be able to reach a bipartisan deal to provide some relief from the spending limits.

Until that happens, however, ‘we’re going to have to live within the numbers that we have under the law, and sadly, that means we’re going to have to make a lot of tough choices’ about cutting billions from the Air Force spending request, he said.

Air Force officials said the force is older and smaller than it has ever been, and after 14 years of continuous warfare is being stretched to the breaking point.

‘When we deployed to Operation Desert Storm in 1990, our Air Force had 188 fighter squadrons in the inventory. This budget will take us to 49,’ said General Mark Welsh, the Air Force chief of staff. ‘There were 511,000 active duty airmen during Desert Storm. We have 200,000 fewer today.’ Continue Reading

ISIS Jihadists Attempt to Capture Young Assyrian Christian Girl, She Takes out A Machine Gun and Slaughters all Five of Them

Speaking in his ancient language, the Aramaic, the language of Jesus, this unnamed Assyrian fighter gives his testimony about what happened in that fateful day when ISIS entered the Assyrian Christian villages at the banks of the Khabur river near Hasaka. He speaks of valiancy and how they fought against all odds.

We thought that the story would help for the Christian west to connect with the Christians of the east. So translated this never seen before testimony for our western friends to show a story of valor, heroism and the eastern Christian style ‘band of brothers’, and sisters, of course. He recounts the story of one Christian sister, Widad, an Assyrian Christian female fighter and how she single-handedly killed 5 ISIS terrorists before she herself was martyred. His story touched us and it will also touch you. (note: there was an error in the translation “Widad killed have of them” should read “Widad killed five of them”)

“Don’t spread lies” he tells his relatives in America, his village is not gone, even if it is, for he is returning “victoriously”.

To an eastern Christian fighter, the village is everything and death is much more preferred than molestation. The unnamed Christian fighter prefers his grand daughters who were captured by ISIS to be killed rather than to be sexually assaulted. This is the bottom line. It is not “at least I am alive” mentality that is common in the West. Western conservatives by eastern standards are very liberal.

Muslims Forcing Tens of Thousands of Christians into Modern-day Concentration Camps in Pakistan

Muslims are forcing tens of thousands of Christians into concentration camps in Pakistan. The labor camps that these Christians are in most definitely fit the description of concentration camps. For they are forced into hard labor, in an area where they are made to live in despotic and impoverished living conditions; they are forced to endure all sorts of brutal torture, and the Muslims see them as disposable, and will eventually slaughter them in a future holocaust of Christians.

Our team in Pakistan has informed us that there are about 20,000 Christian families enslaved in these camps where they are forced into hard labor, making bricks, just as the Hebrews were forced to make bricks in Egypt, from the early morning to the late afternoon, and sometimes even later than that. They are also forced to go through the most horrific torture. In one event, Muslims in one of the camps forced a husband to be imprisoned in a room while they raped his wife in the other room.

Most frequently Christian men are forced to watch their wives get raped right before their eyes and brutal beatings against the Christians happen at a daily basis.

We at Rescue Christians have been the most active in freeing these Christian slaves from these concentration camps, and have rescued thousands from Islamic persecution in Pakistan. Our team on the ground was able to produce a documentary showing exclusive interviews of the victims we have saved, and actual footage of the slaves in their hard labor. Watch this documentary and spread it around to everyone you know:

The children of God have been enduring the onslaught of the sons of Belial since Cain crushed the head of Abel. This is the life of the Christian: agony, torment, persecution and oppression, travails and endless forlorn days.

Our only prayer is that their suffering shall stir the storms of pity within your souls, and their tears water the ground of your hearts, so that the tree of charity may grow within your spirits. Continue Reading

U.S. Military Decimated by Obama


The U.S. military is shedding so many troops and weapons it is only “marginally able” to defend the nation and falls short of the Obama administration’s national security strategy, according to a new report by The Heritage Foundation on Tuesday.

“The U.S. military itself is aging. It’s shrinking in size,” said Dakota Wood, a Heritage analyst. “And it’s quickly becoming problematic in terms of being able to address more than one major conflict.”

President Obama’s latest strategy is to size the armed forces so that the four military branches have sufficient troops, ships, tanks and aircraft to win a large war, while simultaneously acting to “deny the objectives of — or impose unacceptable costs on — another aggressor in another region.”

In other words, the Quadrennial Defense Review says the military can essentially fight two major conflicts at once. It could defeat an invasion of South Korea by the North, for example, and stop Russia from invading Western Europe or Iran from conquering a Persian Gulf state.

But Heritage’s “2015 Index of U.S. Military Strength” took a look, in detail, at units and weapons, region by region, and came to a different conclusion.

“The U.S. military is rapidly approaching a one-war-capable force,” said Mr. Wood, a former Marine Corps officer and strategic planner. “So [it is] able to handle a major war and then having just a bit of residual capability to handle other minor crises that might pop up. … But it is a far cry from being a two-war force.” Continue Reading

Illegal Alien Dreamers Become a Nightmare for American Families

Family members of people who were murdered by illegal immigrants after those immigrants had previously been detained and released pursuant to President Obama’s policies will testify before House lawmakers Wednesday morning.

The testimony is intended to illustrate a pattern of the Department of Homeland Security releasing criminal immigrants rather than deporting them, according to a Republican congressman who said that DHS had released 36,000 convicted criminal illegal immigrants since 2013.

“Of those 36,000, already now 1,000 of them have already been convicted of new crimes,” says the lawmaker. “These are people who have gone through the court system, even. And yet, rather than them get repatriated, they’re released, and now there are new victims because of the recklessness of the policy.”

With that in mind, a House Oversight and Government Reform panel will hear from Jamiel Shaw, whose son was murdered by a gang member in the country illegally, and Michael Ronnebeck, whose nephew Grant was allegedly murdered by a man who faced deportation but was released by U.S. Customs and Immigration Enforcement.


“We want Grant’s death to be a force for change and reform in the immigration policies of this great nation,” Michael Ronnebeck says in prepared testimony obtained by National Review, after detailing how ICE released the alleged murderer twice: once, after he pled guilty to a burglary, and a second time when he was waiting for a deportation hearing.

“I am asking you, our elected scholars, lawyers, and community leaders, to make these changes; to rise above your political differences, to set aside your personal interests, and to use your resources to make sensible immigration reform a reality in the coming months, so that tragedies like this might not ever occur again,” Continue Reading

GOVERNMENT TAKEOVER: Internet Soon to be Obamanet


Critics of President Obama’s “net neutrality” plan call it ObamaCare for the Internet.

That’s unfair to ObamaCare.

Both ObamaCare and “Obamanet” submit huge industries to complex regulations. Their supporters say the new rules had to be passed before anyone could read them. But at least ObamaCare claimed it would solve long-standing problems. Obamanet promises to fix an Internet that isn’t broken.

The permissionless Internet, which allows anyone to introduce a website, app or device without government review, ends this week. On Thursday the three Democrats among the five commissioners on the Federal Communications Commission will vote to regulate the Internet under rules written for monopoly utilities.

No one, including the bullied FCC chairman, Tom Wheeler, thought the agency would go this far. The big politicization came when President Obama in November demanded that the supposedly independent FCC apply the agency’s most extreme regulation to the Internet. A recent page-one Wall Street Journal story headlined “Net Neutrality: How White House Thwarted FCC Chief” documented “an unusual, secretive effort inside the White House . . . acting as a parallel version of the FCC itself.”

Congress is demanding details of this interference. In the early 1980s, a congressional investigation blasted President Reagan for telling his FCC chairman his view of regulations about television reruns. “I believe it is imperative for the integrity of all regulatory processes that the president unequivocally declare that he will express no view in the matter and that he will do nothing to intervene in the work of the FCC,” said Sen. Daniel Patrick Moynihan, a New York Democrat.

Mr. Obama’s role raises legal as well as political questions. Those harmed by the new rules could argue in court that political pressure made the agency’s actions “arbitrary and capricious.”

The more than 300 pages of new regulations are secret, but Mr. Wheeler says they will subject the Internet to the key provisions of Title II of the Communications Act of 1934, under which the FCC oversaw Ma Bell. Continue Reading

Syrian Village Overrun by ISIS Hundreds of Christians Taken Prisoner


Members of the Islamic State (ISIS) stormed the Tell Tamer area in Syria on Monday morning, taking villagers hostage. The women and children were separated from the men, who were taken to the Abd al-Aziz Mountains. The women remain in the village guarded by ISIS militants. It is unclear how many hostages the Islamic State took, but estimates are in the several hundred.

After the separation, one of the hostages contacted a relative in Canada who then got in touch with A Demand for Action (ADFA), an organization that fosters protection for Assyrians, Chaldeans and Syriacs. The ADFA publicized the attack and hostage situation. Nuri Kino, the founder of ADFA, has been in touch with numerous relatives of those held hostage since the attack. “Many of them have relatives in Sweden and Germany,” Kino told Newsweek in a phone interview.

Kino and his organization attempted to reach villagers by phone, only to have a member of ISIS pick up. “[ISIS] told us that we should not call any longer since we cannot do anything about their situation,” ADFA said in a statement.

The terrorist organization demanded a prisoner exchange with Kurdish fighters; they are seeking the release of ISIS members in exchange for the villagers. The exact number of prisoners ISIS is looking to swap for is not known. They have threatened the lives of the village men, estimated to be more than 100, if the swap does not go through.

If US Government Has Its Way, a Thick Steak Will Become a Rare Commodity


For many months, Western Journalism has been telling you about the near-endless complaints from schools, students, and parents over efforts by Michelle Obama to push the unpopular food guidelines of her federally mandated nutrition program.

The first lady’s “healthy eating” pet project — criticized in school lunchrooms and cafeterias across the country for both compliance costs and unappealing menu items — is purportedly aimed at reducing childhood obesity

Now comes another round in the government’s effort to tell people how and what to eat. In a massive, far-reaching 571-page report to the federal agency in charge of Obama Care — the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) — the Dietary Guidelines Advisory Committee (DGAC) details how it proposes to “transform” America’s food system.

The expansive mission sounds as though it fits right in with Barack Obama’s early and prophetic promise to “fundamentally transform America.”

The Washington Free Beacon reports that among the many sweeping proposals to overhaul the country’s food production and consumption patterns and programs are calls for “the adoption of ‘plant-based’ diets, taxes on dessert, trained obesity ‘interventionists’ at worksites, and electronic monitoring of how long Americans sit in front of the television.”

In addition, the proposed guidelines — which are significant because they are used as the basis for government food assistance programs and nutrition education — call for people to radically change their eating habits to help combat global warming.

Of course, many skeptics doubt that human activity has much, if any, real impact on the earth’s temperature patterns or long-term climate.

Still, this powerful federal committee responsible for nutrition guidelines and how they interact with government healthcare initiatives, tax policies, and behavioral preferences doesn’t take into consideration any doubts about the threat of global warming.

Consequently, the government committee is recommending that people eat less meat so that fewer cows, pigs, chickens, and turkeys are raised. The recommendations to cut back on meat consumption would, supposedly, serve the greater interest of maximizing “environmental sustainability” to reduce problems from climate change.

ISIS Continues to Threaten US Military Families

As the Obama administration continues its sluggish bombing campaign against the Islamic State, ISIS fighters are waging a war directly on the families of U.S. military soldiers.

Last week Angela Ricketts, the wife of an active duty military officer, received a message through her author page on Facebook. At first she assumed it was an average online troll, but after further investigation discovered the message came from an ISIS account. On the same day she received the threat, four other military wives received something similar.

“I read the message and it was terrifying. It threatened my family, it threatened me, it threatened my husband, it said they knew everything about us and where we were and threatened us with Shariah law,” Ricketts said On The Record Thursday night. “This isn’t the mountains of eastern Afghanistan and Paktika province. This isn’t the desert of Iraq. This is here and this is now. This is a brand new world and how are we going to deal with it now that it’s here and these threats are directed towards us?”

“Having it director towards us, it’s completely new ground,” Ricketts added.

Last year the FBI and Department of Homeland Security issued a bulletin warning military families not to advertise their connection to the armed forces online. Continue Reading
