As the Memorial Day weekend approaches, the White House, FBI Director James Comey and others are concerned about a potential terrorist attack on U.S. soil. The government has increased security at military bases and airports and has notified local law enforcement to be on alert at shopping malls and other places where the public congregates. The holiday weekend opens up many potential “soft” targets with Memorial Day gatherings. Brad will discuss the seriousness of this threat and what should you do if you are going to the Mall or a Memorial Day celebration.

President Obama will speed up the training and equipping of Sunni tribal fighters in an effort to erase gains made by ISIS. The decision comes in the wake of the stinging fall of the Iraqi city of Ramadi to the terror group, and came as the president convened more than two dozen members of his National Security Council to discuss the situation. Meanwhile, on the home front, presidential hopeful Rand Paul, as of this writing, is in the middle of filibustering the renewal of the Patriot Act, which provides the authorities for the NSA’s controversial bulk collection of American phone records. Those provisions are set to expire on June 1st. There was no word his campaign on how long the filibuster will last.

The Divorce Professionals, a group of North Jersey businesspeople who have formed an association designed to function as a one-stop referral system for dissolving a marriage, is hosting a divorce expo on Tuesday. The group, which includes a real estate broker, a mortgage officer, a therapist, a financial adviser, a family therapist, a life coach, a private investigator and an insurance agent, was formed last year after some of the members saw a demand for professional guidance in navigating divorce.

During a trip to Camden, NJ, on Monday to announce new steps to improve effective policing, the President made a surprise announcement of new restrictions to the flow of some types of military equipment from the armed forces to police. Tracked armored vehicles, bayonets and grenade launchers are among the equipment that the federal government will no longer transfer to local law enforcement. Other equipment like tactical vehicles and riot gear will only be transferred if police provide assurances that it will be used responsibly. The White House had suggested last year that the program to provide military-style equipment would not change.
