    Minnesota Muslims are celebrating Eid today and tomorrow at US Bank Stadium in downtown Minneapolis. Harking back to the Super Bowl hosted at the stadium earlier this year, the organizers are calling the event Super Eid. Animals will be sacrificed at an undisclosed location off site in connection with the festivities.[snip]The Muslim American Society was founded by the United States chapter of the Muslim Brotherhood. Hamas is the Brotherhood’s Palestinian branch. It shouldn’t be too difficult to get a clue. Andrew McCarthy’s (s The Grand Jihad) provides an extremely useful guide to the world of the Muslim American Society. As...

    Back in June Paul and I both noted the view of economist Irwin Stelzer, who is no fan of Trump, that Trump might in fact win a trade war with China, because Trump has the better poker hand. And I concluded, “File this one away for further reference.” Well lookie here, on the front page of the Wall Street Journal today: U.S., China Plot Road Map to Resolve Trade Dispute by November Chinese and U.S. negotiators are mapping out talks to try to end their trade standoff ahead of planned meetings between President Trump and Chinese leader Xi Jinping at...

    Pressure on Keith Ellison to drop out of the race for Attorney General of Minnesota is growing. National and state party leaders are hedging their bets, mostly either refusing to comment or releasing anodyne statements. But the National Organization of Women has called on Ellison to step down. The best sign of mounting pressure is this: CBS has the story on the most recent domestic abuse allegation against Ellison: “Woman accusing Rep. Keith Ellison of abuse speaks out.” On Thursday, [Karen] Monahan, 44, spoke on camera for the first time about an incident she said happened nearly two years ago....

    Today the New York Times has published a column by John Brennan under the headline “President Trump’s Claims of No Collusion Are Hogwash.” Brennan served as Director of the CIA until January 2017 and held the highest security clearance until yesterday. He must know what he is talking about. Looking for the goods, I turn to his column. Here is the nub of the column: The already challenging work of the American intelligence and law enforcement communities was made more difficult in late July 2016…when Mr. Trump, then a presidential candidate, publicly called upon Russia to find the missing emails...

    "Evil is a make-believe concept we've invented to deal with the complexities of fellow humans." A progressive young American couple was killed in an Islamic State-claimed terrorist attack last month while on a bike trip around the world. Jay Austin and Lauren Geoghegan, who were both in their late 20s, quit their jobs in 2017 to embark on a trip around the world. Austin, a vegan, and Geoghegan, a vegetarian, decided that they're were wasting their lives working. "I’ve grown tired of spending the best hours of my day in front of a glowing rectangle, of coloring the best years...

    But now, congressional Republicans seem ready to do what congressional Republicans often do best — capitulate to the left. The bill would substantially reduce prison time on the front end by slashing mandatory minimum sentences for serious federal drug trafficking crimes. It would also substantially reduce prison time on the back end by awarding significant time credits without providing incentives for any new changes in behavior. What would this mean in practice? It would mean that drug felons sentenced to what currently is a 20-year mandatory minimum sentence (reserved for repeat offenders trafficking in the largest amounts) could be back...

    Petula Drorak is a left-liberal writer for the Washington Post. On Sunday, she attended the “Unite the Right” rallies in Washington, D.C., at which, she says, the water and popsicle vendors seemed to outnumber the Unite the Right marchers. Dvorak describes a telling scene: “There they are! Nazis!” someone shouted, as a knot of about two dozen helmeted, masked, jackbooted marchers clomped through the back of the crowd down H Street NW. A sneak attack! “Go home, Nazis!” some counterprotesters shouted, as the crowd began to turn and surge toward the militant-looking group. “Wait! No!” someone yelled, one hand up....

August 10, 2018 Daniel Greenfield Daniel Greenfield, a Shillman Journalism Fellow at the Freedom Center, is an investigative journalist and writer focusing on the radical left and Islamic terrorism.

    The title is somewhat misleading. This essay is specifically written for young black Americans who believe or have absorbed the message that the ghetto and life on the margin are their destiny, that success is unattainable, and that dreams are only for white people. Before you are halfway through the essay, many of you will be condemning and ridiculing me as simplistic, unrealistic, idealistic, and naive. I agree. But you ignore my message at your own peril. It is very demanding. Anything worth having is very demanding. Your friends may ostracize you and ridicule you as "trying to be white."...

    For years, I have been pointing out that the movies are undergoing a phenomenon that occurs to all moribund art forms: they are separating into content appreciated by intellectuals and content that people like. Art forms go through life cycles, are born, thrive and die just like everything that comes from the hand of mortal man. Sometimes, an art form will have a second flowering, other times it is replaced by a new technology that renders it somehow obsolete. But in any case, at its peak, an art form's best work and its most popular work are often one and...

    Minnesota could be the decisive battleground in November, and the national media are beginning to notice. The Associated Press reports: “Democrats’ hopes to take House could stumble in Minnesota.” For all the talk of a blue wave sweeping Democrats back into the House majority this fall, their efforts could be thwarted in one of the nation’s bluest states. I would say, formerly one of the nation’s bluest states. Minnesota is moving to the right. Voters in the sprawling farm country south of Minneapolis and in the economically struggling Iron Range along the Canadian border give Republicans in those two congressional...

    Charles Dickens wrote the classic A Tale of Two Cities a century and a half ago. It's a story about two famous cities of the times, Paris and London, around the time of the French Revolution. These cities were the height of sophistication and enlightenment in the world, long before American cities caught up. Three American cities did catch up and were at one time shining beacons of American success: San Francisco, Chicago, and Detroit. San Francisco was the gateway to the Pacific and lands beyond – beautiful city on hills with the Golden Gate Bridge connecting San Francisco to...

    Xu Yimiao writes that China is running out of retaliatory tariffs against the US and has watched other major parties like the EU and Japan close ranks against it. Before the trade war gets more severe, Beijing’s leaders should seek direct talks with Trump, and may have to swallow their pride Some serious discussions are going on in China as the country faces an escalating trade war with the United States, slowing domestic growth and increasing investment restrictions in the US and Europe. There seems to be recognition that the previous playbook drafted by hardliners has not worked and Beijing...

Giuliani said on the show that the "real story" is that the Mueller case isn't going to fizzle, "it's going to blow up on them," referring to the Mueller team. "There's a lot more to what they did that nobody knows about yet," he added. "A lot more to the obstruction of justice, to the collusion, to the fake dossier," Giuliani added. President Trump this morning sent out this mysterious tweet: Hmm,...

On today’s Morning Joe, speaking of the stumbles of socialist superstar Alexandria Ocasio-Ortez, Mika Brzezinski said: “Women are learning, in real time, to fail publicly. Andrea [sic] Ocasio-Cortez has had a rough run since she won in New York. But, we do it! Just like men. And we have a bigger reaction to it, because for some reason, when women fail, it’s much more of a story than men.”Get the rest of...

    evidence yet that a research firm, hired by Hillary Clinton’s campaign and the Democratic National Committee (DNC) to find dirt on and defeat Donald Trump, worked early and often with the FBI, a Department of Justice (DOJ) official and the intelligence community during the 2016 presidential election and the early days of Trump's presidency. Fusion GPS's work and its involvement with several FBI officials have been well reported. But a close review of these new documents shows just how closely Associate Deputy Attorney General Bruce Ohr, who reported to Obama-era Deputy AG Sally Yates, maintained contact with Fusion — and,...
