    Former U.S. Vice President Dick Cheney and his daughter Liz are blasting the nuclear deal between Iran and the six world powers, likening it to the Munich agreement signed in and which paved the way to World War II. The harsh criticism of the deal came in a joint op-ed the two wrote for The Wall Street Journal on Friday. The two write that “despite the explosive spread of terrorist ideology and organizations, the establishment of an Islamic State caliphate in the heart of the Middle East, the proliferation of nuclear weapons, and increasing threats from Iran, China, North Korea...

    "I do not understand why, after every perverted [act of] execution carried out by ISIS, most Muslims insist that these actions have nothing to do with Islam. After all, Muslim history is rife with terrifying forms of execution, similar or even identical to those used by ISIS. I am not talking of executions motivated by revenge, such as the crucifixion of Al-Khallaj,[2] the killing of Suhrawardi,[3] or the slaughter of Ibn Al-Muqaffa.[4] [Nor am I speaking of] the mutilation of dead bodies, such as the practice of displaying the heads of decapitated [victims], which was invented by the Umayyad [caliphs]....

    The risk that groups like Islamic State could smuggle militants into Europe under cover of a huge wave of migrants is much smaller than some politicians suggest, according to security specialists with close ties to governments and intelligence agencies. By the end of July, more than a third of a million migrants and refugees had entered the European Union, mainly via Italy, Greece and Hungary, according to EU border agency Frontex. The flow has continued unabated through August. Once inside the bloc’s borderless Schengen zone, the new arrivals—many from countries like Syria and Iraq where Islamic State holds sway over...

    Iran is continuing its verbal attacks on Israel, with the latest remarks coming on Saturday by a close aide to the Islamic Republic’s Supreme Leader, Ayatollah Ali Khamenei. The aide, Seyed Mahmoud Nabavi, was replying to British Foreign Secretary Phillip Hammond’s recent remarks that Tehran has changed its policy on Israel, and underlined that fighting the “Zionist regime” is Iran’s everlasting policy. “Fight against the illegal Zionist regime is one of the immutable policies of Iran which has always been maintained,” Nabavi told the semi-official Fars news agency. He blasted Hammond’s comments and said, “Such words are incorrect since one...

    Soldiers who were part of NATO’s Resolute Support non-combat mission were quickly dispatched to advise Afghan special forces bolstering local efforts. Col. Brian Tribus, an American military spokesman, also confirmed U.S. forces had carried out 18 airstrikes in the Musa Qala district since 22 August. Mr Mirza Khan Rahimi, governor of Helmand, played down the impact of the US airstrikes to the Telegraph, saying that Afghan forces would have been sufficient on their own to wrest back control of Musa Qala. Mr Rahimi claimed that up to 300 Taliban fighters had been killed or wounded in the operation. At least...

    On October 22, 2014, shots rang out in Ottawa at the National War Memorial, and at Parliament Hill—probably for the first time ever. A soldier standing guard at the War Memorial was shot and killed. A short time later, the terrorist was taken down and himself killed at the Centre Block of Parliament, by the highly adept Sergeant-at-Arms. Two days earlier, two Canadian soldiers in Quebec had been run down by a terrorist in a car. The terrorist was shot to death after a car-chase, while one of the soldiers, who had been critically injured, died shortly afterwards. Violent Jihad...

    Security officials from both sides said the focus was now on Marib, an oil-rich province that supplies the rebel-held capital of Sanaa with electricity and fuel, after months of combat and airstrikes that have killed some 2,000 civilians, according to the U.N. Pro-government forces have recently tightened their grip on the province's capital, also called Marib, while the Shiite rebels, known as Houthis, have consolidated their positions on its outskirts, digging trenches and laying mines in nearby Jawf, security officials from both sides and witnesses said. If pro-government forces manage to push the rebels out of Marib, they could potentially...

    While the world’s attention is fixed on the tens of thousands of Syrian refugees swarming into Europe, a potentially far more profound crisis is unfolding in the countries of the Middle East that have borne the brunt of the world’s failure to resolve the Syrian war. Those reaching Europe represent a small percentage of the 4 million Syrians who have fled into Lebanon, Jordan, Turkey and Iraq, making Syria the biggest single source of refugees in the world and the worst humanitarian emergency in more than four decades.

In an editorial published by Politico, Samantha Power argued that a “no” vote from Congress would make it more difficult for the United States to drum up support for sanctions and partner with like-minded countries to confront crises. “If the United States rejects this deal, we would instantly isolate ourselves from countries that spent nearly two years working with American negotiators to hammer out its toughest provisions,” Power wrote in...

    “The Constitution is the guideline I will never abandon.” — George WashingtonThe United states of America was born out of a resolve to protect the freedoms of the individual from the tyranny of the state. Its Constitution was written to safeguard those freedoms at all costs—ad infinitum.

They left the American people the Constitution as a preventive vaccine to eliminate this cancer. Therefore, upholding the Constitution and its firm stance against tyranny or any government or enterprise, foreign or domestic that seeks...

However, attempts to adopt this as EU policy have met stiff resistance among the more pragmatic European leaders. ... The final destination is Germany for many of these men, women and children. Official forecasts from Berlin have at least 800,000 asylum seekers arriving this year alone, causing much concern among Germans worried about their country’s ability to digest that many new arrivals.

    It was particularly revealing when David Axelrod explained that, of all his accomplishments in Barack Obama’s White House, he was proudest of the fact that “there hasn’t been a major scandal.” The qualifier “major” lays the burden on shoulders of the press to define what constitutes a serious scandal, and political media had thus far reliably covered the administration’s ethical lapses as merely the peculiar obsessions of addlebrained conservatives. Surely, much of the political establishment in Washington nodded along with Axelrod as he patted himself on the back. A mere seven months later, though, and it is clear now that...

    I have a great idea for an update to the Iran deal that would save a lot of time. We should go ahead and provide Iran with nuclear weapons and also some ICBMs. This will substantially shorten the time necessary for them to develop or purchase them on their own. Doing this will also force President Barack Obama and his administration to deal with a nuclear Iran now instead of kicking the can down the road for someone else. The president will not be able to bask in the "look what I accomplished" light and then blame the next administration...

But the extremists still control broad swathes of land in the war-torn country, where ISIS has waged a terrifying offensive of forced religious conversions and beheadings. Bolstered by coalition airstrikes, the Peshmerga fighters wrestled back more than 200 square kilometers (80 square miles) near the town of Tuz since August 26, the Combined Joint Task Force said.

    The most disturbing aspect of the scandal around Hillary Clinton’s use of a private e-mail server during her tenure as secretary of state is not the former first lady’s penchant for secrecy. What’s truly unsettling is that it has been widely taken as read among both the media and the general public that Mrs. Clinton will likely avoid serious legal consequences for her behavior because the Justice Department is ultimately answerable to President Obama – and Democrats will not use the instruments of government to destroy one of their own. Whether that eventually proves true, the sentiment itself reveals a...

    By Joel Leyden Israel News AgencyNew York — August 27, 2015 … Two of Israel’s best friends, businessman Donald Trump and Senator Ted Cruz, have agreed to host a mass rally in Washington against the Iran Deal which directly threatens the security of the United States and Israel. Cruz and Trump are both presidential candidates but transcending their run for the White House is a sincere desire to limit an Iranian ICBM nuclear attack on the US. Both Trump and Cruz realize that if Iran secures 150 billion dollars from the lifting of sanctions, that money will go towards nuclear...

    Yeah, I get President Obama's point. He wants to disarm law-abiding Americans but entrust the Iranian Islamist theocracy to police itself on nuclear arms and subsidize its funding of global terrorism. But we're the "crazies." Recently, Obama dissed opponents of his Iran nuclear deal for "making common cause" with Iranian hard-liners who chant "death to America," and now he's calling us crazy. But he's the one playing footsie with those America haters. Projection is a beautiful thing. It gets old pointing out that Obama uses Saul Alinsky tactics to demonize conservatives and avoid defending his positions, but it's true. Instead...

    Churches fall, mosques rise. Across Europe, thousands of churches have closed and many of them have become mosques. The St. Mark’s Cathedral in London survived Nazi bombers in WW2, but fell to a new invasion and became the New Peckham Mosque. In France, where there are now more Muslims than practicing Catholics, the Islamic colonists demanded that thousands of empty churches be turned into mosques. The Capernaum Church in Germany has become the Al-Nour Islamic Center. In Amsterdam, the St. Ignatius Church was transformed into the Fatih Camii Mosque. Its name means ‘The Conqueror’s Mosque’. The original Fatih Camii Mosque...

    Living as a Christian in many parts of Iraq or Syria has become impossible – a one-way ticket to martyrdom at the hands of ISIS – yet it remains a near-impossible feat for these persecuted religious minorities to find refuge in America. But if you can get to America and get your case in the hands of Robert DeKelaita, your chances are greatly improved. As it turns out, this high-powered Chicago attorney may have been a little too successful. He’s gained asylum for thousands of persecuted Christian from Iraq, Syria and Egypt, and that caught the attention of the Obama...

    82% of all voters OPPOSE President Obama's plan to give $100 billion in sanctions relief within the next few months to Iran without the approval of Congress. 67% of all voters would NOT approve of a deal that does NOT allow independent inspections of Iran's military laboratories, no US monitoring of the program and no Americans or Canadians on the ground in Iran to inspect in any capacity. 64% of all voters think that President Obama and Secretary Kerry are only telling Americans what they think will help the agreement be passed by Congress. Only 19% think they are telling...

    Frontpage Magazine has published a bombshell report that has been met with total silence by the media.  Daniel Greenfield’s piece is entitled “Traitor Senators Took Money from Iran Lobby, Back Iran Nukes.” Our politicians bought by Iran don’t just include a list of Senators and Congressmen about to vote on the Iran Deal.  Recipients of Iran’s largess for their campaigns include President Obama, Joe Biden, John Kerry and Hillary Clinton. Both of Obama’s secretaries of state were involved in Iran Lobby cash controversies, as was his vice president and his former secretary of defense. Obama was also the beneficiary...

    Syrian-born Mohamad al-Halabi finds common cause with messengers of hate. Since Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan made his call for 10,000 of his followers to volunteer to murder white people, last month, it is important to expose those in positions of influence who champion him and other messengers of hate. One of these individuals is the Imam of the Boca Raton, Florida-based American Islamic Center of Florida, Mohamad al-Halabi, who recently went out of his way to publicly praise Farrakhan. Farrakhan began his leadership within the Nation of Islam (NOI) in 1978 and took over the entire organization in...
