That’s some nuanced nuance right there. The ISIS Jihadists just want to join John Kerry for a meal at a fancy restaurant. Maybe he can invite them on over. Kerry introduced the topic of what motivates terror recruits.
“Why do people make what to many of us would seem to be an utterly wrongheaded choice and become the kind of terrorists that we’re seeing?” he asked. “It’s a question that we need to approach with humility, but also with determination, because you cannot defeat what you Read more [...]
While the White House held a Countering Violent Extremism summit this week to talk about “extremist ideologies that radicalize” – not radical Islam in particular but myriad forms of extremism domestic and foreign – CNN reported that the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) has circulated an intelligence assessment on the “domestic terror threat from right-wing sovereign citizen extremists.”
The assessment, reviewed by CNN, was produced in coordination with the FBI and “counts 24 Read more [...]
In an interesting turn of events, president Obama has finally spoken out on religion and terrorism.
The problem is that he only spoke to make sure that everyone understands that Islam isn’t at fault for the terrorist activities of its followers. While he seemed completely comfortable blaming Christianity for the Crusades a couple of weeks ago, he is now reticent to blame any religion for any act of terror… ever.
Now, just as those of us outside Muslim communities need Read more [...]
A new set of rules soon to be issued by the Obama administration would require faith-based charities to provide abortions to child refugees entering the U.S. without their parents.
Organizations working to help resettle the children contend the rules are a violation of the conscience rights of faith-based groups and a contravention of the rights of parents.
The rules would require charitable organizations, including faith-based groups that help resettle refugee children, to make referrals for Read more [...]
This story has got to have Colonel Sanders rolling over in his grave.
A KFC (Kentucky Fried Chicken) customer was told by a restaurant that he could not have a wet hand wipe because they are soaked in alcohol and might offend Muslim customers.
The customer at the KFC, located at one of their UK restaurants designated as a “Halal-only branch” is pretty upset about the incident, according to a report from The UK Times:
Graham Noakes, 41, said he was astonished when staff at the fast Read more [...]
As I earlier reported the Stanley’s of Garland County Arkansas had their seven homeschoolers forcibly taken from their home. Though they were given several reasons, all unsubstantiated, for the DHS investigation no charges were filed. They originally were informed that they would have the children returned in 72 hours. It has been five weeks.
Last week, the Stanley’s learned that a hearing scheduled over the matter has been postponed until March 23. Therefore, Read more [...]

Texas will become the 45th State to allow Open Carry, according to Texas Governor Greg Abbott (R) in comments he made during his 2015 State of the State Address.
"Let me briefly follow up on a word I mentioned a moment ago – liberty," Abbott said. "In a single word, it encapsulates what this country stands for, what Texas symbolizes. I will expand liberty in Texas by signing a law that makes Texas the 45th state to allow Open Carry."
The anti-gun Moms Demand Action, a Michael Bloomberg concoction, Read more [...]
The Obama administration is preparing to equip the so-called “moderate” Syrian rebels with the ability to order U.S. air strikes despite the group’s admitted allegiance to the Islamic State.
Members of the Free Syrian Army (FSA) will be provided with radios to call in strikes from American B-1B bombers as well as pickup trucks with mounted machine guns as the president puts the final touches on plans to train as many as 3,000 rebels in Jordan and Turkey by the end of 2015.
“Negotiations Read more [...]
Those were the not-so-subtle views expressed by former Mayor Rudy Giuliani and Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker at a Manhattan dinner party Wednesday night.
“I do not believe — and I know this is a horrible thing to say — but I do not believe that this President loves America,” Giuliani said of Obama.
“He doesn't love you. He doesn't love me. He wasn't brought up the way you were brought up and I was brought up," Giuliani added. "To love this country. And with all our faults, we're the Read more [...]
You've probably heard about the upcoming address that Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu will be making to Congress. And you've probably heard analysis that's been solely based on the politics of the matter - and that, as a result, totally misses the point of what's happening and why.
There's the Israeli political angle: Netanyahu is up for re-election as Israelis go to the polls in March, so the pundits tell us he's trying to burnish his credentials by appearing before the legislative Read more [...]
The BBC is reporting that another ISIS atrocity has taken place in western Iraq. In the city of al-Baghdadi, ISIS captured and burned 45 people to death in yet another display of their depravity. ISIS terrorists captured the city just last week and apparently wasted no time in showing the locals the vicious evil that they are known for.
Col. Qasim al-Obeidi is the local police chief, and he spoke with the BBC about what was happening in Al-Baghdadi. Col. Obeidi said that he believed at least a Read more [...]
