    Born in New York, Jay grew up in Monmouth County, attended the University of Delaware, and earned a master's degree from Georgetown University. It was at Georgetown that Jay met fellow unicorn-chaser Lauren Geoghegan. Austin, a vegan, spent his days advocating for sustainable living, worked for the Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) during the Obama administration, and owned a trendy micro-house he parked in Washington... In 2017, Jay decided to follow in Julian Roman's footsteps and tempt fate. At the time, Austin wrote on his bicycle blog that "[t]here's magic out there, in this great big beautiful world."...

    The accusations that Democratic National Committee vice chairman Keith Ellison sexually abused two women may become the latest case of social mores butting up against religious freedom. DNC chairman Tom Perez reminded critics of Ellison’s behavior that “imposition of Christian standards of behavior on a Muslim man violate the First Amendment protection against government infringement on the free exercise of religion.” “Under Islam, a man has total dominance over a woman,” Perez observed. “First, under sharia law, a woman is effectively only half as human as a man. Using this math, each of the accusers’ testimony is out weighed by...
  • Muslim Couple Bites Swiss Helping Hand: Refused citizenship after refusing to shake hands

    For centuries the Swiss -- whether German, French, or Italian -- have been proudly insular in their mountain fastness, resolutely avoiding European conflicts. While hospitable to tourists, they're happy to see them spend their money and then get the hell out, and don't hand out citizenship lightly. Especially not when the prospective citizens bite the hand that's offered them: A Muslim couple have been refused Swiss citizenship after refusing to shake hands with people of the opposite sex, officials said. The couple were interviewed for citizenship several months ago in the city of Lausanne, and also “showed great difficulty in answering...

    Ashwaq was only 14 when Islamic State fighters stormed into northern Iraq, including the heartland of the Yazidi people. They took thousands of women as sex slaves, including Ashwaq - sold for $100 to a man named Abu Humam. Raped and beaten, she managed to escape three months later and then went to Germany with her mother and one brother. A few months ago, on the street outside a supermarket, she heard someone call out her name. She says it was Abu Humam - and he said he knew where she lived.

    John covered an interesting story out of Sweden the other night which really struck me as a bit odd. It’s a tale of arson and vandalism, “hooligans” and riots. These are all things which I don’t generally associate with the country of Sweden for some reason, but it turns out that such acts of unrest are actually rather common there, particularly right before the beginning of the new school year. Yet these car fires (which numbered in the hundreds) hit multiple cities simultaneously, so it looked far too coordinated to write off as mere coincidence.A bit more digging reveals...

    A British woman going by the pseudonym “Kate Elysia” recently revealed the extent of her sexual victimization by Muslim men. While this included the usual -- including drugs, and gang-rapes by as many as 70 men -- her story had an interesting twist to it. According to the report: “[A]t one point during her abuse, she was trafficked to the North African country of Morocco where she was prostituted and repeatedly raped.” There she was kept in an apartment in Marrakesh, where another girl no more than 15 was also kept for sexual purposes. “I can’t remember how many times...

    Nor do we describe our enemy as "jihadists" or "Islamists" because jihad is a holy struggle, a legitimate tenet of Islam, meaning to purify oneself or one's community, and there is nothing holy or legitimate or Islamic about murdering innocent men, women, and children.

    More than one million pilgrims have already arrived in Saudi Arabia, days before the kingdom prepares to host its mammoth annual Hajj pilgrimage, according to state media. The Hajj, which is expected to draw more than two million pilgrims this year, represents a key rite of passage for Muslims and a massive logistical challenge for Saudi authorities – as these stunning images show.

    Gates of Vienna ^ | 15 Aug, 2018 | Baron Bodissey
    There were three unconnected jihad attacks yesterday in widely separated places: London, Philadelphia, and Dordogne. The three lone mujahideen used divers methods in these attacks. In Westminster the weapon of choice was a car; in Philadelphia it was a gun; and in Périgueux it was a knife (two knives, actually). The attackers in Europe were immigrants; the one in Pennsylvania was an African American. The three incidents have these characteristics in common: 1. They were low-grade jihad attacks, as such things go. Nobody was killed, and only a handful of people were wounded in each case. 2.The three attackers —...

    Monday evening coordinated attacks small groups of young men dressed in black torched between 80 and 100 cars. The fact that the attacks took place in several cities at roughly the same time led police to believe the arsonists had organized themselves on the internet. So far authorities aren’t saying who is responsible but Sweden’s Prime Minister is promising to “go in hard” against whoever it is. From the Guardian: “I am really furious, what the hell are they up to?” Stefan Löfven on Tuesday morning. “Society will always act hard against this and we must continue to do...

    Ilhan Omar, a progressive state legislator, will win the Democratic primary in Minnesota's 5th Congressional District, CNN projects. Backed in her race by Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Omar -- who came to the US more than two decades ago as a refugee -- would become the first Somali-American member of Congress if she wins the seat being left behind by Rep. Keith Ellison, who is running for state attorney general, in November. Omar is also on a path to arrive in Washington, DC, next year with Michigan Democratic House nominee Rashida Tlaib, who is running unopposed in the fall, to become the...

    The man being held on suspicion of terrorism after the Westminster car attack on Tuesday has been named as Salih Khater by British newspapers. The event, in which 15 cyclists and pedestrians were reportedly struck before Khater’s silver Ford Focus hit the Palace of Westminster anti-terror barrier just before 07:40 BST, is being investigated by British counter-terror police. He has been arrested under the 2006 terrorism act. Apparently uncomfortable in identifying the terror suspect using the common nomenclature as an ‘immigrant’, government security minister Ben Wallace instead called Khater a “British citizen [who] came from another country originally” when he...

    The man arrested on suspicion of terror offences after a car crashed outside the Houses of Parliament has been named as Salih Khater by government sources. The 29-year-old British citizen, originally from Sudan, has also been arrested on suspicion of attempted murder, Met Police said on Wednesday. He came to the UK as a refugee and was granted asylum, the BBC understands. His brother described him as a "normal person" with no fanatical ideas, and no links to any religious group. Abdullah Khater also said his family - who are originally from Darfur in Sudan - was in "a state...

    Democrat judge sends dangerous jihadists back into our midsts. New Mexico state judge Sarah Backus on Monday released five Islamic radicals on a $20,000 “signature bond,” which requires no payment.  The decision came as a shock, given what local law enforcement had discovered.  At a ramshackle compound near the Colorado state line, Siraj Ibn Wahhaj, 39, Lucas Morton, 40, Jany Leveille, 35, Hujrah Wahhaj, 38, and Subhanah Wahhaj, 35, trained 11 children to use firearms and attack schools. The compound had been under surveillance but police only launched a raid when one of the children texted that they were all...

    Thirty men have been charged with raping and trafficking five girls in West Yorkshire. The allegations against the defendants are non-recent sexual offences dating back to between 2005 and 2012. They relate to five women who say they were abused as children in the Huddersfield area between the ages of 12 and 18. One woman, 38-year-old Fehreen Rafiq from Huddersfield, is charged with two counts of facilitating the commission of a child sex offence.

    Sweden’s prime minister has promised to “go in hard” against masked men who set alight up to 80 cars in Gothenburg and other towns on Sweden’s west coast, in what police say appeared to be coordinated attacks. “I am really furious, what the hell are they up to?” Stefan Löfven on Tuesday morning. “Society will always act hard against this and we must continue to do so … We will do what needs to be done to take care of it and go in hard against this crime.” Sweden goes to the polls on 9 September with violent crime high...

    "I get pissed off for real," Prime Minister Stefan Löfven hit out in an interview with Swedish radio ahead of the September 9th election, adding he wanted to ask the perpetrators "what the hell are you doing?" "Society will come back hard on this," said the Social Democrat leader, who also raised questions about the scope and timing of the attacks, which police suspect were coordinated via social media. "It looks very coordinated, almost like a military operation," Löfven said, adding that the police probe would show if the car fires were down to vandalism, organized crime or something else.

    Indonesian prosecutors have demanded an 18-month prison term for a woman who was charged with blasphemy after she complained about the volume of a mosque's loudspeakers. The ethnic Chinese defendant, Meiliana, 44, was arrested on May 18, about two years after her case triggered a riot in Tanjung Balai, a port town in North Sumatra province. A spokesman at the local prosecutor's office, Sumanggar Siagian, said Tuesday the sentencing demand for Meiliana was made at the District Court in Medan, the province's capital, on Monday. Prosecutors said the defendant had violated Indonesia's criminal code by committing blasphemy against Islam, the...

    They used molotov cocktails to set fire to the cars. There are an estimated 15 cars as well as a number of tyres set alight. Reports of other arson attacks came from the Kronogĺrden in Trollhättan. Footage from Frölunda in Gothenburg shows a gang torching car after car. The police received several reports about car fires and young people who were seen running from the site.
