    Pensacola Update

    I am pleased to report that Secretary of Defense Mark Esper seems to appreciate the severity of the problem the Pentagon has with the American people regarding last week’s terrorist attack at Naval Air Station Pensacola.

    It was announced yesterday afternoon that all 852 Saudi military students in the United States have been suspended from flight training and will be restricted to classroom instruction pending a thorough security review and increased vetting efforts.

    That’s a good first step.

    The idea that we are training Saudi pilots, allowing them to travel all over the country, permitting them to get hunting licenses, but denying our own soldiers their right to be armed is insane.

    Jersey City Shooting

    Late [Tuesday] afternoon, there was breaking news of a shooting at a kosher market in Jersey City.  Three people were killed at the store and a veteran police officer, a father of five children, was also gunned down at a cemetery prior to the attack on the kosher market.  Jersey City Mayor Steven Fulop said that the kosher store was deliberately targeted.

    The perpetrators of this vicious attack were identified today as David Anderson and Francine Graham.  Prior to the shooting, Anderson posted anti-Semitic and anti-police statements online.

    Not much is known about Graham, but Anderson had an extensive criminal history, including arrests in New Jersey and Ohio.  Both were suspects in another murder that occurred over the weekend, and were reportedly members of the radical Black Hebrew Israelites.

    If that group sounds familiar, it should.  They were on the National Mall this January threatening Nick Sandmann and other Covington Catholic high school students who were peacefully demonstrating in support of the sanctity of life.
