The rally was held at an Islamic community center reportedly attended by the two men who targeted the Garland event. Ritzheimer encouraged people on the group’s Facebook page to bring guns, but aside from a few minor skirmishes, nothing serious really happened. But Democrats Keith Ellison and Andre Carson...

    The Democratic National Committee is raising a number of eyebrows after choosing to proceed with hosting Islamic “Jumah” prayers for two hours on the Friday of its convention, though it denied a Catholic cardinal’s request to say a prayer at the same event. Watch the promotional video, via the Bureau of Muslim Affairs, which is partnering with the DNC for the event. The first two minutes are rather dry, but around 2:04 a muezzin sings the call to prayer with an American flag background, and the video “picks up” considerably:

Reps. Sue Myrick (R-N.C.), John Shadegg (R-Ariz.) and Paul Broun (R-Ga.), and Trent Franks (R-Ariz.) - citing the recently released book, “Muslim Mafia: Inside the Secret Underworld that's Conspiring to Islamize America” – called for the House...

Goode's letter triggered angry responses from a New Jersey congressman and an Islamic civil rights group. In the letter, Goode wrote, "The Muslim representative from Minnesota was...
