    As the public’s fear and loathing surge, the frontrunner’s durable candidacy has taken a dark turn. MYRTLE BEACH, South Carolina—All politicians, if they are any good at their craft, know the truth about human nature. Donald Trump is very good, and he knows it better than most. Trump stands alone on a long platform, surrounded by a rapturous throng. Below and behind him—sitting on bleachers and standing on the floor—they fill this city’s cavernous, yellow-beige convention center by the thousands. As Trump will shortly point out, there are a lot of other Republican presidential candidates, but none of them get...

    President Obama used his weekly address to appeal to families counting their blessings on Thanksgiving, reminding Americans that the holiday isn’t only about turkey but a tribute to the deep immigration history that led to the nation’s founding. In 1620, a small band of pilgrims came to this continent, refugees who had fled persecution and violence in their native land, Obama says. Nearly 400 years later, we remember their part in the American story and we honor the men and women who helped them in their time of need. The Obama administration said Wednesday that states can't legally block the...

The list, based on information from Belgium's security apparatus, included two brothers who would take part in the bloodshed in France on Nov. 13, as well as the man suspected of being the architect of the terrorist plot, Abdelhamid Abaaoud, a Molenbeek resident who had left for Syria to fight for the Islamic State in...

If so, they may be the first western or Russian troops to die in the Syrian conflict. There was no word on the fate of some 10 crewmen said to be aboard the helicopter.Putin called the Turkish shooting of the jet “a stab in the back by accomplices of the terrorists.” He accused Turkey of aiding the...

    A Russian rescue helicopter has been shot down by Syrian rebels while searching for pilots missing after Turkey downed a Russian jet. The helicopter was forced to make an emergency landing in a government-held area in Syria's Latakia province. A Syrian insurgent group, which uses U.S. Tow missiles, said its fighters hit the helicopter with an anti-tank missile. Video footage has emerged online appearing to show the helicopter after it crashed in dense woodland. Plumes of smoke can be seen coming from the aircraft.

Thousands and thousands of people in Jersey City did not cheer the destruction of the World Trade Center on Sept. 11, 2001. Period. End of story. There is no need to continue to "fact check'' his words. The truth is that Trump's statements are factually, ethically and morally wrong. Those of...

Why would ISIS descend upon the Global Warming Poohbahs of 195 nations when their leaders have already sent out the capital letter-message that it is definitely global warming—and not Islamic terrorism—that is the world’s biggest threat? For a rampaging ISIS, no other message could possibly be as explicit as that...

    Belgium maintained the highest terror alert level for the capital of Brussels on Sunday, indicating a "serious and imminent" threat of attack. The security measures came amid an international manhunt for Saleh Abdeslam, a potential accomplice to the Paris attacks last week, who was believed to have crossed into Belgium after the terror spree. Abdeslam's brother, Mohamed, issued a fresh appeal Sunday for him to give himself up to police. "We would rather see Salah in prison than in a cemetery," he told RTBF television. Officials have described Saleh Abdeslam — whose other brother, Brahim, blew himself up in Paris...

    Earlier this month, Israel’s Knesset enacted a minimum prison term for minors who throw stones and firebombs at vehicles. An outraged Palestinian Authority called the measure “punitive and racist.” Stoning attacks in Israel go largely unreported, but on average there are several such incidents every day. The perpetrators are usually Palestinian Arab youth, and their victims are almost always Israeli Jewish motorists. A number of these attacks have resulted in severe injuries and deaths, including Jewish children. There are certain areas of Jerusalem that the police, ambulances and other public services simply won’t enter for fear of being stoned. But...

Mali is former French colony, now an Islamic state.  It’s a poor—very, very poor land-locked country.  Let’s unpack all the history and current entanglements and see where it leads.

    Islam is the most violent religion in the world. Indeed, Islam has been spread by violence since its inception. What explains this? This is pretty straight forward folks. There are peaceful Muslims, but there is no such thing as peaceful Islam. Violence is not an aberration in Islam—it is DOCTRINE. Dozens of passages in the Quran exhort Muslims to hate or kill or terrorize infidels (non-Muslims) wherever they find them. For examples, see Suras 2:190-193, 2:216, 2:244, 3:56, 3:142, 3:151, 4:24 (rape of captive women); 4:56, 4:74 (beheading), 4:76, 4:84, 4:89, 4:91, 4:95, 4:104, 5:51 (take no Jews or Christians...
  • Hillary: These hateful Republicans wanting to deny refugees because of religion is a new low

    ....She'll say anything. We all know that, right? And not that she's the sharpest tool in the shed, but she certainly knows that any reluctance to take Muslim refugees has to do with this troubling tendency toward jihad rather than a preference for the Bible over the Koran (however much that preference may be justified). So when she tries to make it sound like that's all this is about, she's both lying and being incredibly stupid, so what does that make her? Why, it makes her Hillary Clinton, of course.....

    Republican senators Ted Cruz and Jeff Sessions rebuked the Obama administration Tuesday for failing to share with Congress the immigration history of 72 people with terrorist associations living in the U.S. The senators bashed Attorney General Loretta Lynch, Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson and Secretary of State John Kerry for not providing the individuals' personal and family immigration information, which was requested Aug. 12 and expected by Sept. 4. "More than three months later the administration has not provided immigration details on a single one of the 72. It is quite telling that this administration — which seems to have...

    The French have already announced that they are going to go ahead with the Climate Change conference scheduled for later this month. Of course, the correct thing to do would be to cancel the conference, not because security cannot be provided, but because if you are waging a "pitiless" war, that is what one must focus on, not as Steyn so aptly puts it, "talking about sea levels in the Maldives in the 22nd century? By which time France and Germany and Belgium and Austria and the Netherlands will have been long washed away."

    The federal government's failure to secure the Texas-Mexico border continues to put critical oil and gas infrastructure in the state at risk, Texas Railroad Commission Chairman David Porter said in a Nov. 16 letter to the Homeland Security Department. Citing several news articles, Porter said ISIS has attacked against oil and gas pipelines in the Middle East, and to do so in Texas could be part of the terror group's plans. In 2013, the Yemeni oil minister said the destruction resulted in almost $1 billion in lost revenue. Porter was echoing sentiments he expressed in a letter last year to...

    President Barack Arrogant McStompyfoot held his ground the other day, proclaiming that the US was going to continue importing Syrian refugees, despite the fact that they cannot be properly screened. Deputy National Security Director Ben Rhodes was the guy who made sure the video was the focus in the aftermath of the Benghazi attacks as opposed to policy failure. He now assures us that the refugees will be thoroughly screened. He's not worried.Todd asked, "Does the president now have any more pause about bringing Syrian refugees into the United States?" Rhodes said, "No, Chuck. We have very extensive screening procedures...
