    Kansas could be the first state to outlaw a certain type of abortion commonly used during the second trimester of pregnancy. A bill banning what's known as the "Dilation and Evacuation" procedure, commonly known as partial birth abortion, passed Friday in the Kansas Senate. The abortion method, which includes extracting the fetus in pieces, was described by lawmakers supporting the bill as "gruesome" and "barbaric." Another state senator said it's "unimaginable that such a procedure could be used by a medical practicioner." The measure is expected to pass in the Republican-controlled state House of Representatives then gain the signature of...

In an address to world leaders on the final day of his summit on violent extremism, Mr. Obama said that poverty and political grievances fuel alienation that can lead to bursts of killing like those seen in Paris, Copenhagen, Sydney and Ottawa. In addition to building up security forces, he said nations must “put an end to...

In a meeting today with a delegation from the Church of Scotland, who traveled to the Vatican on an ecumenical visit, Pope Francis decried the slaughter of 21 Coptic Christians from Egypt by Islamic State of Iraq and al-Sham (ISIS). Speaking in his native Spanish, the pontiff used the ecumenical audience of Presbyterians to declare that the Copts were martyred for their faith — the faith of all Christians. They died “only because they confessed Christ,” Pope Francis emphasized, and their “testimony cries out to be heard”: I would now like to turn to...

According to Gateway Pundit and the following tweets, Muslims also surrounded cops and read passages from the Quran outloud. Yes, Muslims had the nerve to celebrate this, even in Oklahoma.

It's always impressive when when someone chooses to keep faith with his or her beliefs rather than submit. But the notion that children would have that kind of courage is humbling.

    Over the last few years, we've seen a dozen Western hostages convert to Islam in order to appease their captors, or in the hopes of getting better treatment. It never works, of course.  The hostages are still beaten, or killed, regardless of their profession of faith. It would seem intuitive for Islamic State hostages to convert to Islam in order to win some modicum of mercy from captives who proclaim profound religiosity. But it clearly doesn’t work, according to accounts and stories from Somalia to Syria. And why should it, since the Islamic State has proven itself willing to execute people of...

    Brazoria County is home to Alvin ISD where ABC-13 was among the local TV news outlets that reported on parents outraged by a sixth grade assignment on the terrorist organization Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS). At the time that these students were given the homework to write a one-page paper, only American journalist James Foley had been butchered by ISIS barbarians. It should also be disconcerting to parents that in the non-Common Core state of Texas, the assignment links back to the Common Core website Teaching the Core. Alvin ISD sixth-graders were asked to read the two-page document,...

    (Left: “Support our troops” bow, right: Benjamin O. Yeh)We all heard about the warning against wearing military uniform in public in Denmark, but when I went training as a volunteer in our National Guard this Sunday, I decided to keep my military uniform on and bicycled 15 km across Copenhagen just to show people on the street that we should not be afraid to show that we support and protect our fellow non-Muslims. The day before, this happened (translated from BT, via 10news.dk — click to subscribe and support):There are consequences of supporting Danish soldiers in public. Benjamin O. Yeh, spokesman for the Danish war...

    Warwick’s police chief says a threat to elementary school students in three communities mentioned beheading. Col. Steven McCartney tells WPRO-AM that the threat specified that “beheading is planned.” He called the nature of the threat targeting children in Warwick, Cranston and Johnston chilling. “There was a specific mention of elementary schools in this letter, the other thing which was the specific type of threat, which was beheading, is planned,” McCartney told WPRO. Johnston police received the anonymous threat by mail on Tuesday. Police say officers will be at every school in Johnston, Cranston and Warwick through Friday. Several parents said...

    As ISIS prepares to take the Turkish border city of Kobani, the new Caliphate's use of social media as a promotional tool (which is rather more effective than, say, the Democrats' or Justin Trudeau's) has begun to inspire what Obama would presumably call the jihad's junior "junior varsity" teams: Boko Haram, the extremist Islamic group, reportedly beheaded seven people Monday in Nigeria in revenge attacks, which were described by one resident as the way butchers "slaughter goats." From the report, you might get the impression that that's a figure of speech. But it's literally true. At the end of my...
  • Thank You, ISIS: The beheadings have achieved what all the warnings from conservatives never could

    Beheadings of innocent human beings are unspeakable acts reflecting the barbaric savagery of the Islamic “holy war” against the West — against us. Yet despite the intentions of their perpetrators, they have had an unexpected utility. Their gruesome images have entered the living rooms and consciousness of ordinary Americans and waked them up. The barbarity of the Islamic movement for world domination has actually been evident for decades: in the suicide bombing of the Marine compound in Lebanon in 1982, in the bombing of the World Trade Center in 1993, in the suicide attacks on Jews — men, women, and...

    I’m not sure how many of you remember Naomi Wolf, author of the once widely touted book The Beauty Myth more than twenty years ago. Thinking back, the last time I recall hearing much about her was during the 2000 election cycle. (She worked for Gore.) But apparently she’s still out and about, staying active in public policy and sharing her various opinions on social media. And some of her most recent theories are certainly… interesting. Author and former Democratic political consultant Naomi Wolf published a series of Facebook posts on Saturday in which she questioned the veracity of...

    The parents of a US aid worker held hostage by Islamic State militants on Sunday released photographs of their son and parts of a letter he wrote them from captivity in which he says he is scared to die but at peace with his belief. Peter Kassig, 26, was taken captive a year ago while doing humanitarian work in Syria, his family has said. He was threatened in an Islamic State video issued on Friday that showed the beheading of a British aid worker. Ed and Paula Kassig of Indianapolis, Indiana, appealed for his release on Saturday in a video...

    Incredibly, in the wake of a Jihadist beheading of a white, Christian grandmother in Moore, Oklahoma a few days ago, instead of coming forward with a statement condemning the barbaric act to Americans, Obama has sent a proxy messenger to the mosque of the murderer in Moore with a message of appreciation and support. Tell me how this can be viewed in any sane way other than condoning murder in the name of Allah? It is literally murderous sympathy for the devil and obeisance to blatant evil. When I heard this last night, I cannot express the anger that consumed...
