ICE agent’s quest for justice

“Betrayed.”

Victor Avila is a survivor. Soft-spoken but iron-willed, he dedicated his life to law enforcement and to his country. Yet, the feds are now fighting tooth and nail to bury the full truth about the 2011 ambush by Los Zetas drug cartel thugs in Mexico that left him gravely wounded and his partner, special agent Jaime Zapata, dead.

Allahu Akbar-itis: America’s deadly, debilitating disease

“Shout ‘Allahu Akbar,’ because this strikes fear in the hearts of the non-believers.”

Who knew hijacker Mohammed Atta’s parting words, discovered in his journal after the 9/11 attacks, would become a national punchline? The louder and more frequently jihadists around the globe shriek their signature battle cry, the more fervently multicultural apologists deny its meaning. They’ve transformed the Islamic supremacists’ obvious and explicit call for violence into a bland utterance of peace as indiscernible and nonsensical as “Aloha Snackbar.”
