    Kid Rock says his critics are "Wasting Time." The rocker shared a lengthy response to recent criticism about his upcoming concerts in Detroit saying the backlash to his use of the Confederate flag at concerts is politically motivated.

    As columnist Charles Krauthammer once pointed out, one the first acts of the Taliban in Afghanistan was to blow up centuries-old statues of Buddha carved in a mountain cliff. They did it not because they were built by the United States or Israel or represented Western colonialism. They did it because they represented civilization and culture and ideas that were different than their own. Today statues of Confederate Gen. Robert E. Lee and other “racist” figures, with the exception of statues of the late Sen. Robert Byrd, a KKK “Grand Kleagle”, are the new statues of Buddha and the black...

    Berkeley Police released mugshots Tuesday of 11 of the 13 persons arrested at Sunday’s violent political riots in the California university town . . . [snip] The average age of the 13 people arrested is 30. Clare Lopez, vice president of research and analysis for the Center for Security Policy, said the mugshots reveal that the people behind the antifa masks were mostly professional agitators, not local college students. “With an average age of 30, those arrested during the violent Berkeley riots of Sunday 27 August do not fit the profile of the average college undergrad,” Lopez told WND. “In fact,...

    Just after last week’s terrorist attack in Barcelona, a pro-Islamic State website posted video from the scene along with a message in Arabic saying, “Terror is filling the hearts of the Crusader in the Land of Andalusia.” Let’s unpack that. “Crusader” is a term jihadists use, pejoratively, for Christians. More specifically, of course, it refers to the Christian soldiers who fought a series of wars, beginning in 1095, to recover Jerusalem and other parts of the Holy Land from the Muslim armies that had burst out of Arabia four centuries earlier. Andalusia indicates the territories of the Iberian Peninsula that...

    It is always maddening for me to hear left-wingers criticize those toward their right of being “unAmerican” and “unpatriotic.”It is maddening because the left, by its very nature anti-American, is by definition unpatriotic.This is not meant to be a criticism, even though there are doubtless individual leftists who will take it as an insult, individuals who feel a certain love for and devotion toward their country. But this reaction is a function of refusing to embrace the logic of their ideology. That the left is and must be anti-American can be gotten easily enough by the following considerations.First, the colonies...
  • Who is Abdul Hamid? When Christian Young Men Turn to Islam

    Thoe Catholic Men ^ | September 4, 2014 | Fr. Brian Doerr
    Although Abdul Hamid has largely been forgotten, he is the young man sitting in the pew next to you at Mass. Abdul was the renowned American boy John Walker Lindh who turned Taliban fighter in Afghanistan shortly after September 11, 2001. The argument can be made that he is an icon for many American Catholic youth of our current day. John Walker Lindh was “raised Catholic” in his suburban California home. By the age of 16, he left his spiritual heritage in search of “his own spiritual path.” That eventually led him to Islam and to his senseless death...

The people who raised you may have had addictions, but that doesn’t have to be your future. You can be the one to break that negative cycle....

    U.S. prison warden: Muslim prayers led to gangs The warden of a U.S. prison holding high-risk inmates, including American Taliban fighter John Walker Lindh, insisted Thursday that he was obeying a court order to allow daily group prayer by permitting inmates to pray in pairs within their cells. Warden John Oliver told a federal judge that when the prison allowed group prayer earlier this year, Muslim inmates formed gangs and bullied other prisoners. Lindh attended the hearing by video conference from the high-security unit that houses him and about 40 other inmates, including several convicted on terror charges. A U.S....

    I am an informant and all I can tell you is that Talibans are walking freely right here in the soil of America right now, right now.” That’s the haunting worry of South Floridian David Mahmood Siddiqui. He was the confidential FBI informant who has a rare view of of trying to infiltrate a largely secreted world of what the U.S. government considers terrorist sympathizers. Asked by Gillen what he thinks the risk of having Taliban living in America is, he responded; “They can commit a jihad at any time, they hate America, you have an enemy living here in...

    Many Liberals Reject Markos Moulitsas's Anti-Conservative Book Max Fisher Max Fisher Thu Sep 2, 8:06 am ET WASHINGTON, DC – A number of liberal writers are condemning American Taliban, the just-released book by prominent liberal blogger and political organizer Markos Moulitsas. Moulitsas, also known as Kos and the chief of prominent website Daily Kos, argues in his book that elements of the U.S. conservative movement are akin to the Taliban, a militant terrorist group responsible for thousands of deaths in Afghanistan and Pakistan. Some liberals--though certainly not all--think that's a bad idea. Here's why. The book's official description reads, "America's...

    INDIANAPOLIS (AP) -- American-born Taliban fighter John Walker Lindh and another Muslim inmate have asked a judge to order a federal prison to allow them and other Muslims in their highly restricted cell block to pray as a group, in accordance with their beliefs. The American Civil Liberties Union last Thursday filed a motion in U.S. District Court in Indianapolis for summary judgment on behalf of Lindh, 29, and Enaam Arnaout, 47, who claim that the prison's policy restricting group prayer in the Communications Management Unit violates their religious rights....

    Am in DC, in office of Republican Congressman. It's just been confirmed by Eric Holder that Obama picked radical Seattle lawyer Tony West, who represented American Taliban John Walker Lindh, to lead the Dem's fight against Arizona's new immigration law. West is a member of the infamous Gitmo 9, lawyers who sued President Bush to get special treatment for the detained Islamic terrorists held in Cuba. This is the message Obama is sending to Arizona and the world: I love terrorists; I reward those who work for them, and I hate any state that chooses to defend its borders. Is...

Christopher Paul was convicted in 2008 of conspiring to use explosives against targets in the U.S. and Europe. All three terrorists worshiped and socialized at a small mosque in Columbus, Ohio, and, according to David B. Smith, an attorney for Faris, were part of a larger group of jihadists and extremists who frequented the mosque. The FBI now is investigating reports of links to that same mosque by Muslim-convert Abdulhakim Muhammad...
