On Wednesday, 14 Americans were killed as they came together to celebrate the holidays. immigrants and American-born. Each of them served their fellow citizens and all of them were part of our American family. Tonight, I want to talk with you about this tragedy, the broader threat of terrorism, and how we can keep our country safe. So far, we have no evidence that the killers were directed by a terrorist organization overseas, or that they were part of a broader conspiracy here at home. So this was an act of terrorism, designed to kill innocent people. Our nation has been at war with terrorists since al Qaeda killed nearly 3,000 Americans on 9/11. In the process, we’ve hardened our defenses -- from airports to financial centers, to other critical infrastructure. Intelligence and law enforcement agencies have disrupted countless plots here and overseas, and worked around the clock to keep us safe. Our military and counterterrorism professionals have relentlessly pursued terrorist networks overseas -- disrupting safe havens in several different countries, killing Osama bin Laden, and decimating al Qaeda’s leadership. Over the last few years, however, the terrorist threat has evolved into a new phase. As we’ve become better at preventing complex, multifaceted attacks like 9/11, terrorists turned to less complicated acts of violence like the mass.
Now that the Fed has turned up the heat around a possible December rate hike, the question is whether the economy will play along. Third-quarter growth is expected to have slowed significantly to less than half the second quarter's pace, but unemployment claims should again come in around the lowest rate in years. The Fed on Wednesday issued a surprisingly hawkish post-meeting statement, commenting specifically that it will be looking for progress in employment and labor when considering a rate hike at its December meeting. The fact the central bank specifically mentioned its next meeting immediately triggered a significant move up in market expectations for a Fed rate rise this year. Fed tells markets to wake up, a rate hike could be coming "There are two things in here that I think give people a little bit of a jolt. Harris said the other point is that Fed officials made it clear there will be a serious discussion at the December meeting about whether to hike rates or not. "The fact that (the markets) were pricing a 1-in-3 chance that the Fed could hike in December was probably too low for comfort, and I think their goal at this meeting was to get to 50/50 and they hit it right on. That's what the markets are...
A week after Gothamist reported that an NYPD undercover detective “converted” to Islam to spy on Brooklyn College students and continued to monitor their activities well into de Blasio’s first term, the police department pushed back. "There's truth in the Gothamist story, if you pick out certain facts you can say, 'Well, this is true,' or 'That's true',” NYPD Deputy Commissioner of Intelligence and Counterterrorism John Miller, told WNYC. Yet the revelations in our story suggested that the surveillance and infiltration of Muslim communities in New York has continued, despite the de Blasio administration’s decision in April of 2014 to dismantle the notorious Demographics Unit. The students saw Mel at events across the city long after they graduated, at least until December of 2014. According to two unnamed sources cited in my article, Mel is also the undercover detective who secured the arrests of two Muslim women in... Glenn Katon is the legal director for Muslim Advocates and a lead attorney in Hassan vs. City of New York , which alleges that the NYPD engaged in a program of “blanket, suspicionless surveillance” that discriminated on the basis of religion.
