    More evidence is arising to show that the pilot of Flight 804 went suicide. People ask: if indeed the pilot went suicide Muslim Kamikaze style, why plunge the aircraft loaded with mostly Muslim passengers into the sea and how does that make any sense from an Islamic perspective on Jihadi martyrdom? Answer: everything. Shakeers [Flight 804's pilot] link to Amr Khaled, just like Shahs link with Anwar Ibrahim should raise some serious alarm bells. Both Ibrahim and Khaled are linked to their love to the Muslim spiritual leader, Sheikh Yusuf Al-Qaradawi. Anyone can click to see the man is a...

What if Jesus Christ could have saved...Hitler, Stalin, Mao, Margaret Sanger? He does have the power, he just doesn't bully you, if you really don't want him, he won't force himself on you. Hillary can choose to be Jesus' friend. That's between the two of them. Our imaginary hatred of a spectre we call "Hillary" is something in our own heads.

    The Ivanpah Solar Electric Generating System located near the California-Nevada border, burst into flames when some of the thousands of mirrors that focus sunlight on water towers became misalinged and started an electrical cable fire. The plant was built with a $1.6 billion taxpayer guaranteed loan and is run by a consortium of companies that include BrightSource Energy, NRG Energy and Google. Associated Press: Firefighters had to climb some 300 feet up a boiler tower at the Ivanpah Solar Electric Generating System in California after fire was reported on an upper level around 9:30 a.m., fire officials said.

It also included a sense of Congress that Dr. Shakil Afridi is an international hero and calls for his immediate release from prison. Afridi is...

These emails, which have been described as tens-of-thousands of top secret and classified emails, were obtained by Russian intelligence who were tailing, both electronically and physically, Guccifer, the Romanian hacker who hacked Hitlerys private, unsecured email server. Russian intelligence operatives were watching everything Guccifer was doing, so they too had access to the Hitlery emails, which they saved, and which are...

    Republicans have a major electoral-map problem in November. Major. Donald Trumps victory last week in Indianas primary not only effectively sealed the GOP nomination for the real estate billionaire but also brought into sharp relief how difficult it will be for any Republican to get to 270 electoral votes and beat Hillary Clinton to become the 45th president this fall. Start here: Eighteen states plus the District of Columbia have voted for the Democratic presidential nominee in every election between 1992 and 2012. Add them up, and you get 242 electoral votes.

The Weekly Standard editor and self-styled neoconservative power broker is back to talking about a third party, declaring that a Trump victory in Indiana would force him to re-focus on his so-called Latter-Day Republicans independent ticket. A third party could help to split the vote on the Right and elect Hillary Clinton president, which would allow Kristol to stave off the Trump threat and...

    One of Trump’s most enduring and arguably most endearing campaign lines has been his promise to treat American vets better. When Trump dropped out of a Fox News debate in January he held a separate event at which he raised money for veterans. But three months later, Trump’s campaign adviser for veterans, Al Baldasaro, doesn’t seem too concerned about it. He told the Daily Beast, “I’m not concerned about it, because I know [Trump is] an honorable, honest guy… you guys just want to say, ‘gotcha.’”To be fair, Baldasaro is not a Trump staffer.

    Donald J. Trump said Thursday that transgender people should be allowed to use whatever bathroom they feel most comfortable with including at Trump Tower in New York. Dipping into a contentious issue by taking a stand many Republicans oppose, Mr. Trump told a town-hall-style event, hosted by NBCs Today show at Rockefeller Center in Manhattan, that when people go to the restroom, they should use the bathroom they feel is appropriate. Mr. Trump, the Republican presidential front-runner, was responding to a question about a bill that North Carolinas governor signed into law last month that bars individuals in the...

    Trump acknowledged that he had a feeling that question was going to come up and proceeded toe the liberal line of political correctness: Well, look, North Carolina did something that was very strong and they're paying a big price and there's a lot of problems....People go, they use the bathroom that they feel is appropriate. There has been so little trouble. ... Fellow co-host Savannah Guthrie turned to the subject of abortion: The Republican platform, every four years, has a provision that states that the right of the unborn child shall not be infringed.

    I like the way he focused on the role of law. North Carolina enacted a law, and now "they're paying a big price, and there's a lot of problems." Law wasn't needed, because: "There have been very few complaints the way it is. People go, they use the bathroom that they feel is appropriate, there has been so little trouble." There was already a social adjustment that accommodated people who needed to be accommodated. Asked whether he would let Caitlyn Jenner, a trans woman, use the bathroom of her choice at Trump Tower, he said he would. He added, "There's...

    Republican Donald Trump, appearing on Thursday's "Today" show, said transgenders should be allowed to "use the bathroom that they feel is appropriate." "So if Caitlyn Jenner were to walk into Trump Tower and want to use the bathroom, you would be fine with her using any bathroom she chooses?" host Matt Lauer asked Trump. "That is correct," Trump said.

    It’s not a good look for the convoy of a crusader against genocide to mow down a little African boy as her motorcade roars through a rural area at high speed (often exceeding 60 miles per hour on two-lane country roads), accompanied by a helicopter overhead, journalists in tow, eager for a photo op with refugees.  But that was the situation facing Samantha Power yesterday in Cameroon.  The Associated Press reports: U.N. Ambassador Samantha Power’s trip to Cameroon’s front lines in the war against Boko Haram started horrifically today as an armored jeep in her motorcade struck and killed...

    It didn't take Syria long to respond to Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu's Cabinet meeting on the Golan Heights Sunday, in which he declared Israel will never surrender the region that was liberated in the 1967 Six Day War. Shortly after the meeting on Sunday, Syrian Deputy Foreign Minister Faisal Al-Mekdad told Lebanon's al-Mayadeen that his regime will "retake the Golan Heights by any means necessary, including using military force." "The Arab Syrian Golan is an occupied territory," claimed Al-Mekdad, referencing UN Security Council resolutions calling the area Syrian. According to the Syrian Deputy Foreign Minister, Netanyahu's Cabinet meeting was a...
