    Iraq and Syria, Libya, Yemen, Nigeria, the Philippines — but nothing to be concerned about: Obama and John Kerry and David Cameron and every other Western leader assures us that it has nothing to do with Islam. “ISIS Says It’s Established A Caliphate In Yemen,” by Jamie Tarabay, Vocativ, April 24, 2015: Supporters of the Islamic State say they’ve declared a caliphate in the deserts of Yemen, where government forces are battling Shiite Houthi rebels, and Al Qaeda fighters are gaining ground amid the chaos.In a nine minute video published online, the group calls itself Soldiers of the Caliphate in...

    The IDF said in an official statement that it will not "tolerate any attempt to harm or violate Israeli sovereignty." The Israeli Air Force struck and killed four terrorists who crossed into Israel from Syria and planted explosives near an abandoned IDF post on Sunday night said, a senior IDF source. The source declined to say which organization the terror cell belonged to, saying it was too soon for such details. The incident, which occurred at 21:30 in the northern Golan Heights near Majdal Shams, began when Combat Intelligence Collection Units identified four suspects planting the explosives on the eastern...
  • Joe Biden Claims That ‘No President Has Done More To Support Israel’s Security Than Obama’

    It is well-known the relationship between President Barack Obama and Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu is not a good one. Nevertheless, both Obama and Netanyahu still have to work on a diplomatic level. Apparently, Obama’s support for allowing Iran to have nuclear capabilities is highly favored by the country’s people, who are recently shown celebrating in the streets. It is also the same deal Netanyahu warned about. A deal which, if approved, would result in dire consequences, not just for Israel, but for the world, according to some observers. For Vice President Joe Biden, he might just be oblivious to the...

The fellows were allegedly trying to get to Syria to fight for ISIS, or as we sometimes more charitably name them in newspaper headlines, Islamic militants. Our local six are just the latest Westerners accused of traveling or trying to travel to Syria to join the Islamic State group, which beheads people, throws homosexuals off roofs of buildings, destroys historical wonders of the world, marries off girls at about 9 years old, stones to death adulterers and shoots children.

    The former public face of Bill Clinton’s White House—and current host of ABC News’ This Week—George Stephanopoulos was floored as two prominent journalists and the Republican Speaker of the House from his Clinton days, Newt Gingrich, laid out for him just how bad the “Clinton Cash” book is for his old bosses. During the show’s roundtable panel after Clinton Cash author Peter Schweizer appeared on the show for a lengthy interview, Stephanopoulos teamed with Democratic strategist Donna Brazile in an attempt to discredit Schweizer. But it started with Stephanopoulos making a shocking admission: Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign wouldn’t send out...

Here are the jokes that caused the actors to blow their little bighorn ...

    Peter Schweizer’s book will finish off doomed Clinton campaign. Who else do Dems have? Honestly, it shouldn’t be a surprise that Hillary Clinton’s 2016 campaign won’t go any further than — if it even gets as far as — her ill-fated 2008 attempt at returning to the White House. After all, Clinton isn’t a more attractive candidate now than she was then, and after two terms of a failed Democrat president one would think it would require a candidate with real political skill to keep a Democrat installed at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue. Clinton, unlike her glib husband, has no such...

    Amid reports of a renewed Saudi offensive against Iranian-allied rebels in Yemen, Iran's news agency reported on Friday that Saudi Arabia had stopped Iranian aid planes from landing in Yemen. Not unexpectedly, a top Iranian official responded with threats directed at Saudi Arabia. Deputy Foreign Minister for Arab and African Affairs Hossein Amir Abdollahian warned on Sunday that the Saudi behavior and its siege of Yemen and preventing the dispatch of humanitarian aids "will not remain unanswered." "Saudi Arabia is not entitled to decide for others in the region," Abdollahian added. Iran's FARS News Agency stated that Saudi fighter jets...

Sen. Ted Cruz of Texas declared that he intends “to do everything humanly possible to stop a bad Iran deal.” Former Texas governor Rick Perry warned that “tyrants don’t abide by agreements.” And Indiana Gov.

    Kudos to TheDC’s Kerry Picket for spotting the significance of this Hillary Clinton quote: “Laws [about reproductive health care and safe childbirth] have to be backed up with resources and political will,” Clinton said. “And deep-seated cultural codes, religious beliefs and structural biases have to be changed.” If one is to assume that “reproductive health care” rights are a euphemism for abortion (a fairly safe assumption), then this is quite telling. Maybe it’s because she was speaking to a friendly audience (at the Women in The World Summit), but this honest appraisal is a reminder that politics are downstream from...

Clinton delivered the wide-ranging speech at the Women in the World Summit in New York City on Thursday, according to Inside Higher Ed. “When women of any age, whether on college campuses or military bases or even in their homes, face sexual assault, then no woman is secure,” she declared. “Every woman deserves to have the safety and security they need.

     passage from Ernest  Hemingway fits the moment. In “The Sun Also  Rises,” one character asks,  “How did you go bankrupt?” and another responds: “Two ways. Gradually, then suddenly.” The exchange captures Hillary Clinton’s red alert. She’s been going politically bankrupt for a long time, and now faces the prospect of sudden collapse. If she’s got a winning defense, she better be quick about it. The ghosts of scandals past are gaining on her and time is not on her side. The compelling claims that she and Bill Clinton sold favors while she was secretary of state for tens of millions...

On the eve of remarks to the Republican Jewish Coalition, the White House contender laid out bullet points for his approach to the Middle East in an interview with the Washington Examiner that would sharply rebuke Obama's eight years.

Little is known about the nature of the attack other than its imminence, which has prompted the TSA to deploy its new Visible Intermodal Prevention and Response teams, or VIPR, to various undisclosed locations. The VIPR teams include airports, train stations and other busy transportation hubs. One law enforcement source suggested parts of California were of special concern.

On 2013 tax forms, most recent available, they claim $30 million on payroll/employee benefits; $8.7 million in rent/office expenses; $9.2 million on “conferences, conventions and meetings”; $8 million on fund-raising; and nearly $8.5 million on travel. Significantly, none of the Clintons are listed on the payroll, except for first-class flights paid for by the Foundation.

    Several of the world's worst terrorist groups, like ISIS and Al-Shabaab, aim to create societies governed by strict, distorted versions of Sharia law. That means anyone who doesn't subscribe to such extremist views are enemies and in danger -- Christians included. Of course, Christians aren't the only ones who have suffered at the hands of such organizations. For example, most victims of ISIS are fellow Muslims who refuse to go along with the ISIS worldview and ruthless tactics. Still, there's ample evidence that Christians have been targeted. The latest came Friday, when an Italian prosecutor revealed that a network of...

The royals met descendants of fallen soldiers on the Royal Navy's flagship HMS Bulwark in Turkey's Dardanelles straits, the same crucial waters the Allies hoped to control 100 years ago. Instead tens of thousands lost their lives on both sides in a nine-month battle between the German-backed Ottoman forces and Allies including Australian, British and New Zealand troops trying to knock the Ottoman Empire out of the war.

    Of all the rotten reasons not to execute Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, we'll give the booby prize to the one offered by Paul Raushenbush, a HuffPo religion editor and ordained American Baptist minister. On Melissa Harris-Perry's show today, Raushenbush imagined that in twenty years, Tsarnaev might become "a spokesperson for reconciling Islam with America. We don't know what this life is going to lead to." Anything's possible, but surely Tsarnaev's sentence should not be based on this sort of idle speculation. What made Raushenbush's argument particularly galling was his statement that "the idea of ending any life for any reason is for...

    (snip) The focus of the fundraiser was on foreign policy and standing with Israel, and everyone at the fundraiser was on the same page—which is the Obama-Clinton foreign policy has dramatically weakened our friendship and relationship with the nation of Israel. The Times somehow found it extraordinary that a conservative Republican would be willing to have a conversation about foreign policy with people who are homosexual. It is only in the Times’ strange caricature of conservatism that that is the case. I am happy to bring my conservative message to anybody—conservative or liberal—and not every supporter of a candidate will...

    On the Thursday edition of NBC’s Late Night, host Seth Meyers jumped aboard the Clinton campaign’s push to discredit the upcoming book Clinton Cash by Peter Schweizer by mocking Schweizer’s background, previous book titles, and chalking the book up to be nothing more than the latest work from “the cottage industry of anti-Clinton books that come out every year.” Dubbed the topic of the latest “A Closer Look” segment, Meyers introducted the book and that it’s been mentioned in the news before making a Game of Thrones reference to go after the GOP: “Now, when a new anti-Clinton book comes...
  • Did Putin Snag US Uranium and Sell It to Iran?

    The Fiscal Times ^ | 4/24 | Rob Garver
    Sen. John Barrasso (R-WY), a member of both the Committee on Energy and Natural Resources and the Foreign Relations Committee, appeared to allege that uranium mined in the United States has illegally been taken out of the country. Barrasso went on to say that he is specifically concerned that the uranium may have been transported to Iran. The claim has particular political salience at the moment because of an investigative piece published by The New York Times on Thursday that showed the Clinton Foundation, run by former President Bill Clinton and current presidential candidate Hillary Clinton, had accepted millions of...

    You might think that the White House would have something of substance to say about the repeated violations of a memorandum of understanding between the administration and the Clinton Foundation that prohibited it from accepting donations from foreign governments while Hillary Clinton served as secretary of state. Wrong! When pressed by ABC News reporter Jonathan Karl on Friday about whether the White House was concerned by the Clinton FoundationÂ’s various indiscretions, or even its failure to disclose foreign donations including those from Uranium One, White House Press Sec. Josh Earnest seemed to suggest that they were not (h/t Washington...

    The Washington Times ^ | Thursday, April 23, 2015 | By David Sherfinski -
    House Speaker John A. Boehner said Thursday that the full House may have to vote to subpoena former Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton’s email server, as the chairman of the Benghazi investigative committee officially called on her to testify twice to his panel. The invitation by Rep. Trey Gowdy, South Carolina Republican and chairman of the House Select Committee on Benghazi, sets up a test for Mrs. Clinton, the former first lady and newly announced Democratic presidential candidate, whose attorney has said she wants to appear before the committee only once, in public. Mr. Gowdy asked Mrs. Clinton to...

    Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX), a 2016 GOP presidential candidate, hammered former Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton, a Democratic presidential candidate, in an exclusive interview with Breitbart News—zeroing in on the new developments of the forthcoming Peter Schweizer “Clinton Cash” book. “The latest scandal regarding Hillary Clinton is stunning in the breadth of the allegations and at the same time I’m not surprised because it is consistent with a pattern we’ve seen for many decades,” Cruz said. Hillary Clinton embodies the culture of corruption in Washington, where politicians enrich themselves and expand their own power—Washington only gets more and more...

    American Thinker ^ | Jeannie DeAngelis
    When Barack Obama was elected in 2008 the general consensus was that the new president was brilliant -- with nothing but hearsay to back up the claim. The Obama myth was that America’s 44th president was the “smartest man in the room,” a brainiac too “intelligent for Republicans to understand.” Then, as weeks turned into months and months into almost two terms, Obama’s questionable decisions, obvious lack of economic prowess, faux healthcare expertise, and total lack of foreign policy and national security know-how called into question whether the Obama-is-a-genius assertion might have been a bit hasty. Nothing the president has...
  • ‘American Sniper’ derailed by Muslim complaints at University of Maryland

    The University of Maryland joins the University of Michigan in the ranks of educational institutions with an "American Sniper" controversy. Muslim student protests prompted the University of Maryland at College Park to announce the cancellation of the movie about deceased Navy SEAL Chris Kyle. "American Sniper only perpetuates the spread of Islamophobia and is offensive to many Muslims around the world for good reason. This movie dehumanizes Muslim individuals, promotes the idea of senseless mass murder, and portrays negative and inaccurate stereotypes," the university's Muslim Students Association said in its petition, Fox News reported Thursday.

    <p>Gulf of Aden: Iran sends a flotilla of warships and weapons-carrying freighters to reinforce the rebels in Yemen — a noncontiguous, non-Persian, nonthreatening (to Iran) Arabian state — asserting its new status as regional bully and arbiter. The Obama administration sends an aircraft carrier group, apparently to prevent this gross breach of the UN weapons embargo on Yemen. Instead, the administration announces that it has no intention of doing anything. Meanwhile, it exerts pressure on Saudi Arabia to halt its air war over Yemen and agree to negotiate a political settlement involving Iran.</p>

    Ator Mark Ruffalo posted a link to an investigation based on Peter Schweizer’s new exposé Clinton Cash: The Untold Story of How and Why Foreign Governments Helped Make Bill and Hillary Rich on his Twitter page Thursday, a possible signal that Schweizer’s book has penetrated the Hollywood establishment’s liberal entertainment elites. In his post, the Avengers star took a jab at presidential candidate Hillary Clinton, calling Clinton’s involvement in the newly revealed Uranium One scandal a “problem” and reiterating his desire to see Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren challenge Clinton for the Democratic nomination in 2016. “This’s the problem! #RunWarrenRun,” Ruffalo...

    The financial issues plaguing Hillary Rodham Clinton's campaign have become too much even for liberal groups, and now Common Cause is calling for an independent audit of donations to the Clinton Foundation. Amid suggestions that foreign governments donated to the foundation in hopes of getting special treatment from President Obama's State Department when Clinton was his top diplomat, the group on Friday said a "thorough review" is needed. "Six years ago, at Mrs. Clinton's confirmation hearing for her appointment as secretary of state, then-Sen. Dick Lugar observed that 'that foreign governments and entities may perceive the Clinton Foundation as a...
