  • Mexico looks to recast image in U.S. because of Donald Trump

    REUTERS ^ | 4/25/16 | DAVE GRAHAM
    At first, Mexico's government did its best to ignore Donald Trump. Then it likened him to Adolf Hitler. Now it has appointed a new ambassador to come up with a better plan. Fed up with the front-runner for the Republican presidential nomination labeling Mexico as a cradle of drug-runners, job poachers and rapists, the government is sending in respected diplomat Carlos Sada to lead a fightback. Mexico's new ambassador in Washington, Sada acknowledges his country has neglected its image across the border and aims to fix that with PR and media campaigns, and by lobbying prominent U.S. companies, lawmakers and...

    The review reflects mounting concerns in Washington over Moscow’s determination to exploit European disunity in order to undermine Nato, block US missile defence programmes and revoke the punitive economic sanctions regime imposed after the annexation of Crimea. The US move came as senior British government officials told The Telegraph of growing fears that “a new cold war” was now unfolding in Europe, with Russian meddling taking on a breadth, range and depth far greater than previously thought. “It really is a new Cold War out there,” the source said, “Right across the EU we are seeing alarming evidence of Russian...

    While much has been written on the terrorist organization known as the Muslim Brotherhood, for the most part the majority of Americans continue to remain unaware of this nefarious organization as it operates freely in America under a litany of various front organizations posing as charities and civil rights groups. Although terrorist groups like al-Qaeda, the Islamic State (ISIS), and Hamas have clear tactical differences, they both share the exact same ideology and goals. In fact, al-Qaeda, Hamas, and ISIS would not exist today if it wasn’t for the Muslim Brotherhood which birthed these groups through the teachings of ideologues...

    Donald Trump’s Republican rivals say he’s wrong in his calls for increased surveillance and profiling of Muslims in the United States. Former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush argued on ABC’s “This Week” that the FBI has the tools it needs to monitor those in the U.S. trying to launch attacks. “The director of the FBI has made it clear that there are hundreds of cases that they're monitoring, and we should redouble our efforts in that regard,” Bush said. “We don't have to target the religion.” And New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie argued that Trump’s comments highlighted his inexperience, as he...

    No-go zones — elitist media and politicians claim they don’t exist. But they’d better tell that to Da’esh (ISIS), which, in a recently uncovered manifesto, brags that it has been using Western refugee programs to sneak terrorists into Europe with the aim of creating no-go zones. Perhaps even better described as Sharia-dominant mini-caliphates, Da’esh’s intent is to use the areas as bases from which to launch attacks such as the November 13 Paris massacre and the jihadist killings in San Bernardino yesterday

    Many people believe that it's time to start refusing refugees from Syria and Iraq, as we are incapable of determining if terrorists are hiding among them. But another group of immigrants poses a serious security threat that is going ignored: Somalis. Somalia has been partially overrun by Al-Shabaab, an organization that shares ISIS's radical views, goals, and strategies. It frequently publishes videos and photos of executions of "unbelievers" or people suspected of working for the Somali authorities. According to Refugee Settlement Watch, a total of 100,000 Somali refugees have come to the United States in recent years -- 8,858 of...

The poll also shows that terrorism concerns about ISIS have risen to the top of American's concerns. More broadly, terrorism and the Islamic State group surged to the top of Americans’ concerns immediately following the deadly attacks, even as Republicans and Democrats remain divided over how best to address threats. The percentage of those...

"A lot of people understand it. We're going to have no choice." Trump said on Monday he would "strongly consider" closing mosques if elected in response to the terrorist attacks in France last Friday that killed at least 129 people and injured hundreds more.

Yes, everyone in America has the right to freedom of religion, but Islam is not a religion. Religious faith is only a part of Islam. The rest is a socially engineered society with its own laws and customs that seriously conflict with American law. Is Great Britain a religion because they have the Church of England? Of course not. Britain has an established charter, civil and criminal laws, and a society that respects those laws. Islam has the Qur'an that provides...

While Mr. Brennan said authorities are still trying to confirm the extent to which the Islamic State's Syria- and Iraq-based leadership played a role in Friday's deadly coordinated attacks, his remarks on the extremist group as a whole were notably tougher in tone and more alarmist than almost simultaneous comments President Obama was making at an international summit he was...

The disclosure, which came amid claims of French intelligence failures, inevitably raised new security concerns about Europe’s borders. Police said the two men, who arrived in Greece last month, were among seven attackers, one as young as 15. One of the attackers was last night named by French media as Mostefai Ismaël Omar, 29, from Courcouronnes, in Essonne. Serbian media last night reported that one of the terrorists was named as Ahmed Almuhamed. The newspaper,...

Along with desertion, Bergdahl was accused last month of violating the little-understood Article 99 of the Uniformed Code of Military Justice misbehavior before the enemy for abandoning his post in Afghanistan in 2009 and thereby endangering his unit. Although desertion cases are not uncommon, few military lawyers have ever prosecuted, or defended, a misbehavior before the enemy...

    Conservative discourse mainly features teachers' unions as the enemy when it comes to school choice, leaving others, like sociologists and other tenured intellectuals, free from public accountability as they exert their substantial influence on education policy. One thing that you should know if you follow school choice issues is that for leftist academics who oppose school choice, their dogmas take primacy over empirical evidence, and their most fundamental dogma when it comes to school choice is that it promotes racial segregation, and thus thwarts their version of equality. Racial segregation, as a policy in the United States, saw its end...

    We hear a lot about the United States' Judeo-Christian heritage, but according to President Obama, "Islam has been woven into the fabric of our country since its founding." That's what the president told a White House conference on "countering violent extremism" on Wednesday.

    Amir Benayoun is a popular Mizrachi Israeli singer/composer with a small problem. Hes not left-wing, and sometimes his songs are political commentary and not from a left-wing perspective. This past week he released a song called Ahmed Loves Israel (song and translated lyrics below) In particular, it reminds the listeners that the Arab terrorists in Har Nof Massacre, in the Merkaz HaRav Massacre, in the Rechavam Zeevi assassination, in the Yehuda Glick assassination attempt, and in many of the other terror attacks worked near the places where they committed their terror attacks, and they seemed normal, until they werent....

    From:'info@nrsc.org' David, I'm really disappointed and worried. I've been counting on your support to end Harry Reid's disastrous control of the U.S. Senate on November 4th. Mitt Romney, Paul Ryan, Ben Carson, Mike Lee, and John McCain have all taken the time to contact you and ask for your support but unless my information is wrong we haven't heard from you. We've got less than 20 days until Election Day I'm not sure what else to do. Are you sure you really want to see Barack Obama's Harry Reid-ruled rubberstamp majority in the Senate continue for two...

    No, it didnt happen exactly that way this week. But hippie jihadist Bob Bergdahl got his chance to stage a classic agitprop stunt (spontaneously, of course), by twice reciting the jihadist credo in Arabic as a public signal of surrender to the Haqqani terror network in Afghanistan --- a bunch of evil killers who rival the Taliban in their militant hatred for the United States. And Obama just gave our American jihadist a little smile. But what does Obama know? Hes just a passenger on this cruise ship to hell. The Hitler salute meant something so cruel and dangerous that...

  • Shades of Vietnam: Spike in U.S. troop deaths tied to stricter rules of engagement

    The number of U.S. battlefield fatalities exceeded the rate at which troop strength surged in 2009 and 2010, prompting national security analysts to assert that coinciding stricter rules of engagement led to more deaths. A connection between the sharp increase in American deaths and restrictive rules of engagement is difficult to confirm. More deaths surely stemmed from ramped-up counterterrorism raids and the Talibans response with more homemade bombs, the No. 1 killer of NATO forces in Afghanistan. But it is clear that the rules of engagement, which restrain troops from firing in order to spare civilian casualties, cut back on...

    What an incredibly sad way of life it is for children growing up in war-torn Syria whose experience with Islam shows its anything but a religion of peace. A disturbing new video making its way around the internet shows children in the Syrian town of Ras al-Ayn playing a game that simulates an enemy beheading while chanting, Allahu Akbar. Although it is unknown who shot the video, Eretz Zen A secular Syrian opposed to having my country turned into a Taliban-like state published the video on social media sites like YouTube, Facebook and Twitter. The description of the...
