    Republican voters overwhelmingly approve of President Donald Trump temporarily halting the importation of refugees, even after a media firestorm falsely labeled it a “Muslim ban.” Rasmussen Reports filtered out media hysteria and asked likely voters: “The federal government has banned refugees from all countries from entering the United States for the next four months until there is a better system in place to keep out individuals who are terrorist threats. Do you favor or oppose such a ban?” A majority, 52 percent, favored the move, while 43 percent opposed it, and six percent were unsure. Men strongly approved of the...

    President Obama’s top official responsible for vetting refugees testified before the Senate Wednesday that it’s possible for people from Syria and other terrorist-infested countries to have their refugee applications approved based simply on personal interviews with a “highly trained” immigration officer. Leon Rodriguez, director of U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services, could not deny that in many cases there is no data from the refugee’s home country that would corroborate or refute his story. He tried to reassure the committee by saying the screening process is lengthy and continuously being improved, noting that the United Nations pre-screens the refugees before his...

    Donald Trump has been widely scorned by the liberal elite for his stances on immigration. Trump called for a pause in immigration to "find out what’s going on.” Not unexpectedly, that statement was bastardized by the liberal media into a total and complete ban on Muslims for all time. In August Trump refined his plan to call for "extreme vetting" of immigrants: To fight “radical Islamic terrorism” and to “make America safe again,” Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump proposed today administering a new, ideological test for immigrants who want to enter the United States. “We should only admit into this...

The bomb appears to have been a pressure-cooker device, sources said. Investigators have obtained surveillance video of a person placing another unexploded device — a pressure-cooker bomb — that was later removed from 27th Street, the sources added....

This is an enormous opportunity for Americans,” Bill Clinton said about the Syrian migrant crisis. Detroit has 10,000 empty, structurally sound houses—10,000. And lot of jobs to be had repairing those houses. Detroit just came out of bankruptcy and the...

    Despite "heroic" promises to accept 160,000 Syrian refugees, European Union member states have only accepted 6,000 to date while the US alone has already admitted 8,000 of the 10,000 promised. So in light of recent terrorist attacks this begs the question is the U.S. being honorable or just dumb? According to Nayla Rush of the Center for Immigration Studies the answer might just be the latter (although she's far more polite than we are): excerpt at source Given the inability to properly vet refugees, even the New York Times has questioned Obama's logic after a number of refugees have been...

The video shows the 15-year-old, who has not been named, in Verviers and, in Arabic, declaring, “Oh Allah, destroy the odious Christians. Oh Allah kill them all.” The boy is filmed on a French website saying, “Don’t spare any of them.” The film was shot in Verviers, the scene of a successful anti-terrorism operation last year.

Total admissions for the current budget year, which ends Sept. 30, now come to about...

    CLEVELAND — Donald Trump is putting his stamp on the official policy platform of the Republican Party. Republican Platform Committee members on Tuesday voted to include language calling for the construction of a wall on the U.S.-Mexico border. And in a nod their presumptive presidential nominee’s support for a temporary ban on Muslim immigration, they also endorsed language that would impose “special scrutiny” of foreign nationals seeking to enter the U.S. from “regions associated with Islamic terrorism.” Both provisions are departures from the GOP platform of 2012, when Republicans nominated Mitt Romney for president. That party platform then called for...

    LOS ANGELES (KABC) -- Could someone who worked at a Los Angeles-area mosque be linked to the deadliest terror attack on U.S. soil? New allegations about the 9/11 attacks are coming from someone close to the classified investigation. In the three years following the terror attacks the 9/11 Commission found no evidence the Saudi government or high-ranking Saudi officials funded Al Qaeda. But John Lehman -- a former member of that investigative commission -- said a classified section of the investigation shows that as many as six Saudi individuals may have played a role in the attacks. One of those...

It is now able to strike using sleepers who have not yet been identified by security officials. […] Testimony from deserters suggests the terror organization began establishing sleeper cells in multiple European countries early on, in Turkey in particular. According to the former IS fighters, they are made up of men who aren’t on any watch lists. This enables IS to elude the vulnerability suffered by many based in Europe — namely that they are known terrorists....

On Monday, Trump told CNN that the U.S. should greatly reduce its support of NATO. "It's too much and frankly it's a different world than it was when we originally conceived of the idea," Trump said of the US-European security alliance. Cruz said he found it "striking" that the terror attacks occurred on the day after his rival candidate Donald Trump called for reducing the U.S....

This man was elected by conservatives to go to Washington and stand up to the elites that no longer listen to the American people. He didn't go to Washington and "fall in" with...

    The French see René Descartes, a 17th century philosopher, scientist, and mathematician, as the truest expression of their national mind. I am afraid they are right.Descartes rejected authority in intellectual life and insisted on reconstructing knowledge on plain sense and strict reasoning, hence his famous motto, cogito ergo sum (“I think and therefore I am”). However, he also disdained experience as long as it could not be boiled down into logical and mathematical terms. This approach, so much at odds with the empirical and pragmatic approach favored in the Anglo-Saxon world, is indeed a hallmark of French culture -- including...

    Republican presidential candidate John Kasich said Wednesday that Donald Trump’s call to ban most Muslims from the United States would weaken the nation and “doesn’t represent what we are.” “This is not what leads to a strong America,” Mr. Kasich said during an appearance at the Council on Foreign Relations in New York. “We have never been strong by focusing on things designed to divided us.” -snip- Mr. Kasich also said that he is encouraged by how moderate Muslims have come out against the Islamic State terror group, or ISIS. “They have condemned aggressively the attacks all over the word,”...

    Fully 116 members of the GOP’s national security community, many of them veterans of Bush administrations, have signed an open letter threatening that, if Trump is nominated, they will all desert, and some will defect – to Hillary Clinton! “Hillary is the lesser evil, by a large margin,” says Eliot Cohen of the Bush II State Department. According to Politico’s Michael Crowley, Cohen helped line up neocons to sign the “Dump-Trump” manifesto. snip Our Principles PAC, backed by Nebraska’s billionaire Ricketts family, has poured millions into trashing Trump. American Future Fund is dumping $1.75 million in Florida this week; Club...

    President Barack Obama has been quietly pushing new plans to bring thousands of additional Syrian refugees into the country, despite the concerns of state and county officials and the outrages committed by welfare-dependent migrants in Europe. Obama’s special assistant to the president for immigration policy, Felicia Escobar, recently announced plans to increase America’s intake of migrants, according to the Washington Examiner. “We want to make sure that we can increase our numbers of refugees that are able to settle here,” Escobar said. “The need globally is so, so, so massive right now, given all the displacement and conflict around the...

    Sen. Jeff Sessions (R-AL)rejects Sen. Marco Rubio's (R-FL) latest attempt to rewrite history on the Gang of Eight immigration bill. Contrary to Rubio's stunning claim that his Senate-passed plan was "not headed towards becoming law," Sessions says that Rubio's amnesty plan "was on the verge of being passed.

    Few professional analysts seriously expected six months ago that Donald Trump could win the Republican nomination. But after Tuesday night, it is a clear possibility. How much of a possibility? To get that answer right, it is important to understand some things about the Trump phenomenon. Perhaps most important, Trump's campaign is not a Tea Party phenomenon. While there's been a tendency to try to lump Trump in with various G.O.P. insurgencies of the last few years, that role is best filled by Sen. Ted Cruz, who really occupies the "Tea Party lane" of the G.O.P. primary more cleanly. Instead,...
