    WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The United States is re-establishing a law enforcement group to fight those it designates as domestic terrorists, with an announcement expected on Tuesday, Department of Justice officials said. Following hate-motivated shootings such as the one at a Jewish Community Center in Kansas City, Missouri in April, federal prosecutors have pressed the need to coordinate intelligence of such criminals on a national level, said the officials, who spoke on condition of anonymity. The group will coordinate cases that involve Americans who may be spurred to violence for political or prejudicial reasons.

    Although the tea party's influence is "undeniable," it is not inevitable -- and it must be crushed for the good of the nation, Sen. Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.) argued in a long political speech on Thursday. "They've won elections, stymied Democratic priorities and taken a sledgehammer to programs that are important to tens of millions of Americans," he complained.

    The Algemeiner ^ | January 22, 2014 | Ronn Torossian
    Imagine a right-wing politician who proclaimed that left-wingers who are “pro-gay, pro-abortion, and anti-self defense” have no place in their state. Can anyone doubt that Jewish leaders would condemn the statement and speak out loudly about “intolerance,” and the need for diversity. Wouldn’t they issue press releases and more? If such a politician would make a statement, pressure would mount for his resignation and undoubtedly it’d make for a lot of media attention. Yet, Democratic Governor Andrew Cuomo’s assertions that conservative New Yorkers don’t belong in the State because “that’s not what New Yorkers are” have largely been ignored. Cuomo...

    While we are not surprised at any outrageous thing liberals say, it is becoming increasingly disturbing how brazen they now are in their un-American pronouncements. This past Friday the Democrat Governor of New York, Andrew Cuomo, flatly declared that people who hold conservative views on life, guns and homosexuality have no place in New York. He called these views “extreme.” This is the governor of a state in America, not a member of the lunatic fringe Left on MSNBC. Well, he may be a member of the lunatic fringe Left, but he is—sadly—still a governor! The New York Post reported...

    Several dozen suspected terrorist bombmakers, including some believed to have targeted American troops, may have mistakenly been allowed to move to the United States as war refugees, according to FBI agents investigating the remnants of roadside bombs recovered from Iraq and Afghanistan. The discovery in 2009 of two al Qaeda-Iraq terrorists living as refugees in Bowling Green, Kentucky -- who later admitted in court that they'd attacked U.S. soldiers in Iraq -- prompted the bureau to assign hundreds of specialists to an around-the-clock effort aimed at checking its archive of 100,000 improvised explosive devices collected in the war zones, known...

To judge from the commentary inspired by the shutdown, most progressives and centrists, and even many non-Tea Party conservatives, do not understand the radical force that has captured the Republican Party and paralyzed the federal government. Having grown up in what is rapidly becoming a Tea Party heartland–Texas–I think I do understand it. Allow me to clear away a few misconceptions about what really should be called, not the Tea Party Right, but the Newest Right. The first misconception that is...

The damage done by a suicide bomber is normally confined to a few dozen. Even in the case of the World Trade Center attack the tally of victims was less than 3,000. The GOP’s efforts to defund the Affordable Care Act endangers the health and lives of millions.” Pfeiffer labeled the GOP efforts as “the worst kind of extortion. They have forced the President and his allies in the Senate to try to counter this assault on the nation’s health...

Obama warned of an "extreme wing" of the Republican party that was willing to shutdown the government over Obamacare. Obama delayed his speech by about 50 minutes after news of the attack broke Monday morning, but pressed forward with his full remarks in the South Court Auditorium of the White House.

    U.S. Department of Defense education materials obtained by Judicial Watch, a conservative watchdog group, warn of “extremists” that will “talk of individual liberties, states’ rights, and how to make the world a better place.” Judicial Watch and other conservative media outlets claim the disclosure indicates the department is teaching that conservative views are “extremist” in nature. The guide is reportedly authored by the Defense Equal Opportunity Management Institute, a Defense Department-funded diversity training center. Further, the documents cite the left-leaning Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC) when identifying “hate groups.”

    JERUSALEM — An Israeli is under arrest for the vandalism of a Christian monastery in the occupied West Bank last year, carried out in solidarity with hardline Jewish settlers, police said on Monday. Graffiti left on the 19th-century Latrun Monastery referred to Migron, an unauthorized settler outpost evacuated by the Israeli government. The words "Jesus is a monkey" were also daubed on the wall in Hebrew, and the monastery's doors torched. The September act was condemned by Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, who said the perpetrators had threatened freedom of religion and must be punished. Netanyahu has become increasingly concerned by...

    America should not tolerate extremist Muslim actions like the Boston bombing. We need to establish a mechanism of distinguishing between extremist and moderate Muslims, so that we can keep extremist Muslims out of America. Does any of you know how to distinguish between those two groups? One suggestion may include requiring all Muslims who want to enter America, to eat a pork chop or bacon sandwich. A moderate Muslim who has no strict religious beliefs, would not mind taking a bite out of a pork chop or bacon/ham sandwich.

Israeli mainstream media has been criticizing the Jewish Home for supposedly "hiding" some of its candidates and refusing to allow them to be interviewed, while giving other candidates who "sound better" on television much more airtime. Now, the Likud is planning to use this criticism and point out the "hidden" candidates to the public. These are mostly candidates from the Tekuma party's list, headed by Uri Ariel, which merged with the Jewish Home...

    President Obama's casting of Mitt Romney as extreme is one of the most glaring incidents of political projection in the modern era. Romney doesn't approach extremism in substance, style or disposition. Obama swims in it. In an interview with The Associated Press, Obama said Romney has locked himself into "extreme positions" on economic and social issues and would implement them if in office. Accusing Romney of extremism is just another arrow in Obama's fantasy quiver, because reality just doesn't help him. Romney is anything but extreme, and no serious political analyst believes otherwise. He is certainly extremely bullish on America,...

A 14-page document, titled, “How Islamist Extremists Quote the Quran,” explains the study’s analysis of 2,000 instances of propaganda from al-Qaida and other Islamic extremist groups from 1998 to 2011: We conclude that verses extremists cite from the Qur’an do not suggest an offensive foe seeking domination and conquest of unbelievers, as is commonly assumed.

    A spokesperson for the Rick Santorum campaign inadvertently used the phrase “radical Islamic policies” to describe Barack Obama's theology. Regardless of whether that was a freudian slip or intentionally said, a newly discovered tactic of the Muslim Brotherhood has been discovered; it is both extremely radical and deceptive. It's called “muruna” and it seems to be working...

    A recently issued lexicon from the Department of Homeland Security warns law enforcement personnel to be on the lookout for what it calls “militia extremists.” Militia extremists were described as “persons who exhibit an undue suspicion of government as manifested in statements that evince an inordinate reverence for the Constitution and the Bill of Rights, especially provisions protecting the rights to freedom of speech, bearing arms, and bars to so-called unreasonable search.” Law enforcement officers were advised to “keep such persons under close surveillance” and to “not hesitate to act if they perceive a threat. Let’s not forget that the...

The extremists may refuse to pay taxes, defy government environmental regulations and believe the United States went bankrupt by going off the gold standard.

    What follows is a close look at the leftist lawfare campaign of uncivil agitation as it unfolded in Denver last week. Denver, like other cities that have Occupy manifestations, is faced by a core of protesters from anarchist groups, labor unions, and communist organizations, often obscuring their affiliations, mixed in with a mishmash of confused students, concerned citizen activists, children, and all sorts of evil clowns.

    Top Senate Democrat faults GOP extremists on debtOn Monday July 25, 2011, 3:21 pm EDT WASHINGTON (AP) -- Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid says a debt limit standoff between Democrats and the Republican-led House is being driven by GOP extremists.

    LONDON — A report that Norway's bomb and gun rampage may be the work of a far-right militant confronts Europe with the possibility that a new paramilitary threat is emerging, a decade after al-Qaida's Sept. 11 attacks. One analyst called the attacks possibly Europe's "Oklahoma City" moment, a reference to American right-wing militant Timothy McVeigh who detonated a truck bomb at a federal building in Oklahoma City in 1995, killing 168 people. Police forces in many western European countries worry about rising far-right sentiment, fueled by a toxic mix of anti-Muslim and anti-immigrant bigotry and increasing economic hardship.

    Hundreds of Muslim extremists surrounded a church in central Egypt and threatened to kill the local priest, the Assyrian International News Agency reported. The extremists began targeting the church in a village 7 kilometres south of the city of Minya in March after renovation work began, threatening to demolish the church. AINA Friday cited eyewitnesses as saying that the Muslim mob, dressed in white robes and long beards, chanted: "We will kill the priest, we will kill him and no one will prevent us."
