  • Why Jeremy Corbyn Scares British Jews So Much

    His politics are that of principled rebellion. Between 2005 and 2010, when Labour was in government, Corbyn voted against party lines 25% of the time. Known for his anti-war politics, he has publicly supported both the Palestine Solidarity Campaign and Irish republicans. In 1996 the Guardian editorialized that his ill-timed meeting with Gerry Adams of Sinn Fein made him “a fool whom the Labour Party would probably be better off without.” Now, with the party in disarray, Corbyn has come out of obscurity to become Labour’s next leader — and British Jewry is worried. In a recent Survation poll, 67%...

    (VIDEO-AT-LINK)New York Republican Rep. Peter King, who is considering his own bid for the White House, mocked Texas GOP Sen. Ted Cruz's announcement that he was running in 2016 and said the Texas Republican isn't qualified to serve as president. "Shutting down the federal government and reading Dr. Seuss on the Senate floor are the marks of a carnival barker not the leader of the free world," King said in a written statement on Monday. King's statement references a Cruz speech on the Senate floor that last more than 20 hours, railing against Obamacare in 2013. The New York Republican...
  • Peter King on Rand Paul, Ted Cruz: They Aren’t ‘Responsible Adults’

    Rep. Peter King (R-NY) has made no secret of his disdain for Sens. Rand Paul (R-KY) and Ted Cruz (R-TX). Speaking to the International Association of Firefighters (IAFF) at their presidential forum, King lambasted the senators and implied they aren’t “responsible adults.” “[Rand Paul] is concerned about drones, he’s afraid the CIA might use drones to attack Americans drinking coffee in Starbucks,” King said, drawing a few laughs from the crowd. He suggested ISIS might be further emboldened to attack America if the commander-in-chief thinks the “real threat” is the CIA killing Americans with drones. “Then we have Ted Cruz,...

    Sinn Féin party leader Gerry Adams denied new accusations Thursday that he concealed child-abuse crimes within his own secretive movement, this time allegedly committed by a Belfast officer of the outlawed Irish Republican Army. Mairia Cahill, a member of one of Belfast’s top IRA families, appeared alongside a former foreign minister outside Ireland’s parliament to accuse Adams of conspiring to suppress her reports of being raped by an IRA commander from Adams’ home district in 1997, when she was 16. …

    (VIDEO-AT-LINK)New York Rep. Peter King is stepping up his attacks on 2016 GOP hopefuls Sens. Ted Cruz and Rand Paul as he builds on his burgeoning presidential campaign with planned trips to Iowa and South Carolina. “I don’t want the Republican Party taken over isolationists such as Rand Paul, or people like Ted Cruz who want to shut the government down,” he said while visiting Harvard University’s Institute of Politics. “I want there to be an alternative voice which I feel is in the tradition of Eisenhower, of Reagan, and you know, traditional Republicans who believe in strong national defense...

    Bill Clinton spent eight long years sucking up to Irish Republican Army terrorists, repeatedly bringing Gerry Adams to the White House lending him respectablility and continuously touting the democratic viability of this murderous crime-fueled organization. But avowed terrorists don't change that easily. They remain terrorists because their only successful means of amassing power is through violence. This was as true of Arafat holed up in Ramallah pretending to lead a democratic Palestine (while carrying on in his old ways) as it is now of the IRA. In an unusually clear news analysis, AFP reports on the disarray now engulfing the...

    Today, Gerry Adams presents himself as a folksy, slightly pompous avuncular figure in Irish politics: a moralist who chides the politicians in Dublin for their embarrassingly corrupt ways. The second most popular political leader in Ireland, the "brand image" Adams was crucial to Sinn Fein's success in the Irish general elections this year. Peter Mandelson has suggested that becoming President of Ireland may be just beyond the reach of the Sinn Fein leader. The fact remains that becoming Deputy First Minister in Northern Ireland seems to many to be a real and present possibility. But Mr Adams emerges from a...

    Secret tapes of former IRA members that could implicate Gerry Adams, the Sinn Fein president, in dozens of murders in the 1970s have been demanded by American prosecutors acting on behalf of the British authorities. A subpoena has been received by Boston College for the tapes of interviews with Brendan Hughes and Dolours Price, both one-time senior IRA figures, carried out by researchers for an oral history project. Sinn Fein President Gerry Adams Hughes, a convicted IRA man who was once arrested with Mr Adams, died in 2008. A book “Voices from the Grave” by Ed Moloney, based on the...

    Gerry Adams, the Sinn Fein president, formed a special unit within the IRA which was responsible for the execution of a mother of 10 in 1972 and it was "inconceivable" that he was unaware of the order to kill her, a book claims. Mr Adams has always distanced himself from the "disappearances" of 10 people by the Republican terrorists in the 1970s, victims who were snatched from their homes or off the streets of Belfast, killed and buried in locations kept secret from their families for more 20 years. According to the revelations in A Secret History of the IRA,...

    Martin McGuinness blamed the “dark side” of policing for Gerry Adams’ detention during the election campaign and insisted his leader could have been questioned without being arrested. He said the questioning centered on books Mr. Adams had written and what others said about him—those “maliciously and vehemently” hostile to the peace process. …

    'Liam Adams, a brother of Sinn Féin's Gerry Adams, has been jailed for 16 years for raping and abusing his daughter. Adams' sentence is subject to an automatic 50% remission. Adams, 58, from Bernagh Drive, Belfast, was convicted of 10 offences in October, including rape and gross indecency, against his daughter, Áine, who waived her right to anonymity. She welcomed the sentence but said it was "still much too little, too late".'

    Liam Adams - the younger brother of Sinn Fein president Gerry Adams - has been found guilty of a string of child sex abuse charges. Liam Dominic Adams, 58, from Bernagh Drive in west Belfast, was convicted of raping and sexually assaulting his daughter, Aine, over a six-year period between 1977 and 1983 when she was aged between four and nine. Bespectacled Adams, who was wearing a grey suit, cream shirt and blue tie, showed no emotion as the guilty verdicts were returned. Remanding him in custody Judge Corinne Philpott said: "Take him down." The jury of nine men and...

    The British government is waiting to hear whether a U.S. appeals court will allow the release of interviews with former IRA members purportedly accusing Gerry Adams of running a secret death squad. A court in Boston heard evidence from lawyers on both sides of a protracted battle over tapes from a Boston College oral history project which obtained testimonies from two convicted IRA members between 2001 and 2006. Adams, the president of Sinn Fein, has always denied being an IRA member, let alone heading a security unit which was responsible for kidnapping, torturing and killing suspected informants. It follows a...

    Dear Gerry Today is the first day on which you can claim office space and parliamentary allowances. You’ll see from last month’s debate in the Commons that I did much to support the proposition that you and your colleagues are given offices in the Commons. Together with the allowances, this should net about half a million pounds for Sinn Fein. This tidy little sum will go some way to making up the shortfall in funding from gullible Americans who were outraged by the IRA activities in Colombia organised by your friend, let’s just call him bungling Brian. You know yourself ...
