  • Moderate Muslims Cannot Save Us

    Pamela Geller ^ | September 11, 2016 | Pamela Geller
    Moderate Muslims cannot save us because they do not have a theological leg to stand on. These moderates provide cover for the activated Muslims. They do not hold rallies against jihad, Islamic jew-hatred, creed apartheid,gender apartheid, and holy war. On the contrary, their silence speaks volumes.

    As far as the White House is concerned, Jeffrey Goldberg, The Atlantic's top reporter, is President Barack Obama's unofficial mouthpiece. This was one of the many things we learned from The New York Times in David Samuels's profile of Deputy National Security Adviser Ben Rhodes. In the course of explaining how Rhodes was able to sell Obama's nuclear deal with Iran, despite the fact that it cleared Iran's path to a nuclear arsenal while giving the world's leading state sponsor of terrorism more than a hundred billion dollars, Samuels reported that "handpicked Beltway insiders like Jeffrey Goldberg of The Atlantic......
  • Top Pakistani religious body rules women's protection law 'un-Islamic'

    Reuters ^ | 3 Mar 2016 | Mehreen Zahra-Malik
    A powerful Pakistani religious body that advises the government on the compatibility of laws with Islam on Thursday declared a new law that criminalizes violence against women to be "un-Islamic." The Women's Protection Act, passed by Pakistan's largest province of Punjab last week, gives unprecedented legal protection to women from domestic, psychological and sexual violence. It also calls for the creation of a toll-free abuse reporting hot line and the establishment of women's shelters. But since its passage in the Punjab assembly, many conservative clerics and religious leaders have denounced the new law as being in conflict with the Muslim...
  • Dale Bumpers, Liberal Stalwart of Arkansas Politics, Dies at 90

    The New York Times ^ | January 2, 2016 | Adam Clymer
    Dale L. Bumpers, a liberal governor and four-term Democratic senator from Arkansas who came out of retirement in 1999 to make a passionate closing argument defending President Bill Clinton against removal from office in a Senate trial, died on Friday at his home in Little Rock, Ark. He was 90. His death was confirmed by his granddaughter Linn Bumpers. Mr. Bumpers was part of a generation of moderate Southern Democrats, among them President Jimmy Carter, who emerged in the late 1960s and the ’70s. He always said his proudest achievement had come early in his career when, as a small-town...
  • Donald Trump is a textbook example of an ideological moderate

    The Washington Post ^ | December 16, 2015 | Doug Ahler and David Broockman
    Donald Trump is one of the most extreme presidential candidates to gain widespread support in contemporary American politics. Despite championing policies like the end of birthright citizenship, mass deportation of undocumented immigrants, and a registry of Muslims living in the United States, Trump has consistently polled atop the Republican field since July. A popular perspective thus attributes Trump's success to a "right wing fringe" of GOP voters. But this conventional wisdom misses something important: Trump meets the textbook definition of an ideological moderate. Trump has the exact "moderate" qualities that many pundits and political reformers yearn for in politicians: Many...

    Since he chastised the media at the much-criticized CNBC debate, Ted Cruz has been riding high. For the last few days, there has been no shortage of stories that proclaim "Ted Cruz could be president" and laud his "near-perfect" rating from the conservative Heritage Action. And it looks like it's just getting started.Much of the summer's news, with the rise of Donald Trump and later Ben Carson, meant that Cruz was relegated near the top of the second-tier candidates. To be sure, that is not a terrible place to be when you're running in a wide-open primary, but Cruz has received some promising...

We should stop engaging in the fiction in trying to find these moderate rebels and support them. We should stop the fiction of trying to bring together the Sunnis and the Shias to put down their arms and embrace like brothers. Instead, we should defend U.S. national security interests and do what works to defeat ISIS.

    If Islamic doctrines are inherently violent, why isn’t every single Muslim in the world—that is, approximately 1.5 billion people—violent? This question represents one of Islam’s most popular apologias: because not all Muslims are violent, intolerant, or sponsor terrorism—a true statement—Islam itself must be innocent. Let’s briefly consider this logic.
  • Moderate Republicans Give Democrats De-facto Control Over Montana Legislature

    04/21/2015 6:45:42 AM PDT · by cotton1706 · 5 replies ^ | 4/20/15 | Phil Rolen
    Parliamentary maneuvering and a strategic partnership between moderate Republicans and Democrats in the Montana State legislature have provided Democrats with de-facto control over the House of Representatives on two key issues this session. In a move reminiscent of the underhanded wrangling by national Democrats used to pass Obamacare in 2010, a handful “moderate” Republican legislators joined with Montana Democrats to bypass opposition by changing chamber rules to pass a state Medicaid expansion plan (SB 405) and the controversial CSKT Water Compact (SB 262). SB 405 passed the House earlier this month on a 54-42 vote. SB 262 passed 2nd reading...

    A neat scoop by Andrew Johnson, although I’m more interested in grassroots reaction to it than I am in the story itself. “Governor Walker does not support amnesty,” the governor’s spokesman, Tom Evenson, tells National Review Online. Evenson says the 2002 resolution was “stripped of references to amnesty before passage” and, in fact, reinforces the governor’s view that illegal immigrants should face penalties before they are granted citizenship. The resolution, viewable here, did not mention or spell out such penalties, and expressed support for “comprehensive immigration reform” that would have provided “greater opportunity for undocumented working immigrants to obtain legal...

On today's Morning Joe, the Politico honcho agreed with Joe Scarborough's suggestion that Chris Christie is like Bruce Willis in The Sixth Sense: [politically] dead but doesn't know it. Ironically, Scarborough distanced himself from his own suggestion, twice saying that he didn't believe it. But when he asked his guest if the characterization was fair, Vandehei replied "I think it is. At best he's a live man stumbling." Scarborough said "you talk to people in the Republican party and they say Chris Christie is already politically dead. . . . Since everybody is saying this...
  • Youngest Woman Elected to Congress Seeks Middle Ground

    Elise Stefanik, the youngest woman ever elected to Congress, has never held elected office, but her résumé looks more like that of a Beltway insider than a political newcomer. By the time she won her seat representing a swath of upstate New York in the November election, she had served as a domestic policy aide for former President George W. Bush , a policy director for former Minnesota Gov. Tim Pawlenty ’s 2012 presidential campaign and head of debate preparation for vice-presidential nominee Rep. Paul Ryan . Yet while her rise in the Republican Party has been swift, Ms. Stefanik,...

    Listening to all the stories about Jeb Bush and his angst over the conservative base of the Republican Party, the question occurred: Why doesn’t Jeb ease his conscience and his donors' wallets and just switch parties? Go now, become a Democrat—and then form an alliance with the wife of the man the Bushes affectionately call their “brother from another mother.” That being the woman George W. Bush has dubbed as being “like my sister-in-law”—Hillary Clinton.After all, the Bush/Clinton alliance has already been on display, as I unknowingly noted in this column when Governor Bush presented former-Secretary Clinton with the Constitution...

    He didn’t say whether he had a particular moderate in mind. Any theories? Cruz, a deeply conservative Texas Republican and likely 2016 candidate himself, called Bush a “good governor in Florida,” before warning against nominating a centrist Republican. He didn’t specifically place Bush in that category, but the implication was clear: Bush, the son of former President George H.W. Bush and the brother of former President George W. Bush, is far more moderate than the Republican base is on a host of issues including immigration and education.“If we nominate another candidate in the mold of a Bob Dole or a...

Rouhani once again repeated the slogan he used during his presidential campaign that the centrifuges will never cease rotating, while the wheels of the people’s lives, too, will rotate more smoothly. "Our nation has emerged victorious and will be victorious," emphasized...

    What, and who, is a moderate Muslim? Islamic values are codified in the Koran. The idea that some Muslims might interpret those values in a moderate way is like saying there’s such a thing as jihad lite. There’s no getting around the fact that a central tenet of the Koran is mass murder – whether through the directive to kill infidels (non-believers), apostates (those who leave Islam), or hypocrites (Muslims who don’t practice their religion appropriately). In other words, most of civilization is fair game for slaughter. What, pray tell, would be a moderate version of that? And if people...

The trend started after three Lebanese youths posted pictures of them burning the flag associated with the militant group, also known as Islamic State, in the middle of Sassine Square in Beirut. Soon afterwards, a Lebanese YouTube user uploaded a video of himself burning a flag. Similar to the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge in which people choose others to their do own videos, the user nominated "the whole world " to take part in the #BurnISISFlagChallenge.

    The irrevocable Islamic and Koranic injunction upon all Muslims is to wage relentless war against any non-Muslim nation state that exists within what Islam decrees as the Dar al-Islam (the House of Islam). Wherever the Muslim foot has trod triumphal in the name of Allah, that territory is considered eternally Islamic land. If it is lost, then it enters the Dar al-Harb (the House of War) and must be retaken and the population either forcibly converted to Islam, forced into dhimmi degradation, or exterminated.

    Against all logic, some prominent conservatives continue to promote the absurd proposition that right-wing candidates who fail to win over GOP voters in Republican primaries would magically succeed on November ballots. This assumption enables them to retain a naive faith in the claim that "true conservatives" who can't mobilize their own base to win nominations will somehow triumph in general elections by drawing support from moderates and liberals. Texas Sen. Ted Cruz has most recently voiced this idea. "You know, if you look at the last 40 years, a consistent pattern emerges," Mr. Cruz observed in a July interview with...

The list of Republican presidential candidates like this goes back at least as far as 1948, when Thomas E. Dewey ran against President Harry Truman. Dewey spoke in lofty generalities while Truman spoke in hard-hitting specifics. Since then, there have been many reruns of this same scenario, featuring losing Republican presidential candidates...

    FIGHTING THE LAST WAR April 11, 2012 In a fast-changing world, a common mistake is to keep fighting the last war. For example, why would Republicans support sending more troops to Afghanistan, when that war was long over, or helping topple Moammar Gadhafi, who had become an ally in the war on terrorism? Some Republicans seem to support all military deployments just out of habit. For years after the 9/11 terrorist attack on America, Democrats hysterically bemoaned any military action, especially in Iraq. They claimed to have many precious objections, but the truth was, they thought we deserved the...

    Friends, On March 6th Virginia Republicans will go to the polls to vote in the Republican presidential primary. I hope you will take time to vote, and I encourage you to join Governor McDonnell and me in support of Mitt Romney. Governor Romney’s success and experience in the private sector, running the Salt Lake City Olympics and as governor of Massachusetts makes him uniquely qualified to address the significant challenges facing America today. Mitt Romney is the right person with the right plan to lead our country toward a more prosperous future with more jobs, less debt and smaller government....
  • Jeb Bush eyed as latest 'white knight' candidate in GOP presidential race

    Speculation that a late challenger might still emerge in the increasingly bitter race for the Republican presidential nomination is set to surge after former Florida governor Jeb Bush made remarks criticising the current field. Bush, who is the brother of President George W Bush and son of President George Bush Sr, is a beloved figure among many conservatives who see him as a strong and charismatic leader who is popular in the must-win swing state of Florida. That contrasts with a widespread unease among many Republican leaders and grassroots activists with the remaining crop of Republican candidates and the vitriolic...

    In an address recently delivered to an AIPAC audience in New York, New Jersey governor Chris Christie articulated a responsible view of America’s role in the world, stressing the importance of us standing by our friends and taking action against our adversaries. “America should stand by its friends and its democratic allies, even, and sometimes especially, when it’s unpopular to do so,” Christie said, outlining his foreign policy vision. “And you know I know, that it may not be fashionable in some of the chancelleries, the foreign ministries, and salons around the world to talk about why America stands with...

    Once again an illusion of a moderate Islam is unmosqued. And it is ugly. Why do civilized men tolerate this barbarity? Why do civilized men walk on eggshells for fear of insulting savages, as if they had human sensibilities? They don't, and we'd be wise to buck up and fight this gruesome fight. We will have to. Instead, the media quislings allow Islamic supremacists and stealth jihadists to smear, defame and libel those who challlenge jihad and dare to speak the truth about the most radical and extreme ideology on the face of the earth. To what end? Tunisians greet...

    Actually the sheikh is right. This is prescribed and sanctioned, encouraged, under Islam's rules of engagement. Women are booty, the spoils of war. This is rampant in over a millenium of jihadi wars, land appropriations, cultural annihilations and enslavements. Obama say, "Respect it!" Jay Leno's wife, Mavis, say, "The Qur'an is more liberal with women than the Bible.". Geller say, "Defeat and destroy".
