The CAIR Effect: See something, do nothing by Michelle Malkin Creators Syndicate Copyright 2015 As news of the San Bernardino jihadist shootings blared on airport TVs, I spotted a TSA monitor flashing the now ubiquitous message: "If you SEE something, SAY something." The warning should be followed with a big "LOL" and a winky-blinky, just-kidding... Read More
John Doe S.O.S.
There are risks and costs to being a John Doe. Vigilance against terrorism in an age of political correctness will open you up to lawsuits, CAIR witch hunts, public recriminations--or worse. You can stand up or submit. At PJM, Annie Jacobsen "has the harrowing tale of what happened when a Good Samaritan was transformed into... Read More
Several MSM outlets got a hold of a joint FBI-DHS homeland security bulletin warning of potential shoe bomb attacks. ABC News: CBS: The joint FBI-Homeland Security bulletin, obtained by CBS News today, bluntly warns that terrorists are still working to use "modified footwear as a concealment method for explosive devices," CBS News correspondent Bob Orr...

Which one are you?
My column this week is on John Doe in post-9/11 America. Excerpt: "If only." Those are the verbal crutches America must discard in a post-9/11 world. If only the State Department hadn't been so sloppy in issuing visas to the 9/11 hijackers. If only police and state troopers had been able to check the immigration... Read More
"Lan astaslem."
Update 1:30pm Eastern. Memorial photo of the day comes from Iraq, via MNF-I: The caption reads: Never Forget Task Force Marne Soldiers take time on the sixth anniversary of the attacks Sept. 11, 2001, for a remembrance ceremony at the Task Force Marne Headquarters.

"Possible danger? Political correctness! Paper fails duty."
Update 2:00pm Eastern. The Seattle P-I responds to the blogosphere. Monica Guzman announces there will be no haiku winner contest: Yep. We all know who the loser is, though: The paper still refuses to run the FBI photos. Update 11:15am Eastern. John Does are coming forward to assist the FBI. The feds say they have... Read More
Take a close look: Readers in the Pacific Northwest alerted me to a highly unusual FBI bulletin. Via King5-TV: Isolated incident? "Racial profiling?" Unfounded paranoia? Only if you haven't been paying attention. Recall the Seattle Times investigation from 2004 on reports on jihadi probing of the ferry system: Groups of men, including one tied to... Read More
They claimed to have dropped the John Does from their discrimination lawsuit. The Becket Fund challenges them to do what...
The non-profit Becket Fund is putting pressure on the flying imams to drop John Doe whistleblowers from their discrimination lawsuit.

The Becket Fund has filed an amicus brief urging the court to dismiss... Read More
Exposing the campaign to silence John Doe whistleblowers in academia and public life.
You know that outrage you expressed over the flying imams/CAIR attempt to silence John Doe whistleblowers? Well, there are other whistleblowers--the whistleblowers exposing jihadists, their funders, and their ideological apologists--who could use some of that same public outrage and help. This week, we saw CAIR try to shut down Robert Spencer. The Young America's Foundation... Read More
Plus: CAIR's vision of the US capitol
The Becket Fund has filed an amicus brief on behalf of the citizen John Doe whistleblowers targeted by the flying imams: Here is the PDF of the brief. Update
No, we won't shut up.
I mentioned this in an earlier post this morning, but am breaking it out because it deserves a stand-alone. The John Doe amendment is officially alive, well, and incorporated into the homeland security conference report. The Democrats who opposed it will be remembered: Just a reminder--here's that Senate roll call vote on Susan Collins' John... Read More
Chee-bomber, chee-bomber. Plus: Whither the John Doe amendment?
NBC News obtained a TSA unclassified bulletin about possible airplane/airport dry runs by terrorists probing homeland security. What caught my eye were the photos of some of the suspicious devices taken by airport authorities: The report states that "individuals involved in these incidents were of varying gender." Oookay. Is that all they can tell us,... Read More
Audrey Hudson has a fresh report on the status of the John Doe amendment. Take heart and take action. It's not dead yet: "Democrats have been backed into a corner by public outrage over their efforts, so we are seeing these Democrats publicly say they support it in principle, but behind the scenes they are...

Thank you, Brian Morganstern, for stepping up to the plate.
A John Doe bill has just been introduced in Congress: WASHINGTON, D.C. - Congressmen Stevan Pearce, along with Rep. Peter King and Rep. Bill Shuster, introduced a bill today that would protect those who come forward to report suspicious activity from frivolous civil liability prosecution. If passed, the bill, known commonly as the 'John Doe'... Read More
The NYPost has exclusive details about the John Doe hero who turned in the Jersey Jihadist suspects.

Update: I am HuffPo. The left-wing blogosphere is up in arms over the John Doe movement and manifesto. It's telling, isn't it, that HuffPo and company are outraged not at CAIR and the litigious imams--but at me: Love how they show their racist stripes flinging racism charges at others. And how they hide behind their... Read More
