    Terror group ISIS, which is active in Iraq and Syria, is reportedly strengthening its ties with Boko Haram in Nigeria, offering the militants advice on how to build an African caliphate.

The Independent noted that intelligence agencies have been raising concern that what initially looked like symbolic links between ISIS and Boko Haram have now developed "into a practical relationship" with the former offering advice on strategy and tactics....

Rep.

    During his commencement address to the U.S. Military Academy’s graduating class at West Point Wednesday, President Barack Obama referenced the terrorist group Boko Haram, saying, “No American security operation can eradicate the threat posed by” Boko Haram. “Tragically, no American security operation can eradicate the threat posed by an extremist group like Boko Haram, the group that kidnapped those girls, and that’s why we have to focus not just on rescuing those girls right away, but also on supporting Nigerian efforts to educate its youth,” he said. …

    The very best ambush is always the one that traps its victim even before he recognizes he has been trapped. Anacondas squeeze the life out of their victims before they know what the deadly snake is doing. In the past few weeks the “snake” of recognition has moved closer to Barack Obama. It may wrap itself around his boney body and compel him to make a decision about recognizing the danger of Islam, something he doesn’t want to do. The first coil of the snake ironically came from Hollywood’s Gay community who are reliable Obama cheerleaders. Recently homosexuals rallied in...

    Nigeria's defense chief is claiming that the country’s military has located nearly 300 schoolgirls abducted by Islamic extremists but cannot go in with force to free them. Air Marshal Alex Badeh told demonstrators supporting the country's much criticized military on Monday that Nigerian troops can save the girls, according to The Associated Press. But he added, "we can't go and kill our girls in the name of trying to get them back."

    Gunmen suspected to be Boko Haram members have killed about 20 residents of Kamuya village in Biu local government area of Borno State for allegedly failing to provide N250,000 to support their ‘crusade’, eyewitnesses have said. The sect members were said to have asked the villagers about two months ago to raise the said N250,000 in support of what they called “the work of God’ or risk being attacked. LEADERSHIP gathered from impeccable sources that the gunmen, who approached the village head and directed him to begin the collection of the illegal tax from his subjects, later became angry when...

    SO IT SEEMS THAT OUR GOVERNMENT IS NOW DECIDING THE TRUTHS OF ISLAM! When we note the claim that the kidnapped children had accepted Islam, it seems that Mr. Jackson has failed to understand that “all people” does not appear to include those that agree with the groups religious views, especially regarding war against infidels. Senator Rubio seems to be overly fixated on trying to pin the unpinnable and slides right by this global question of true belief. The State Department responds automatically without fear of questioning with what has become common a knee-jerk reaction to a legitimate question. Why...

    Suspected Islamist Boko Haram gunmen rampaged through three villages in northern Nigeria, killing 28 people and burning houses to the ground in a pattern of violence that has become almost a daily occurrence, according to police and witnesses. All three attacks happened on Thursday in remote parts of Borno state, the epicenter of Boko Haram's increasingly bloody struggle for an Islamic kingdom in religiously mixed Nigeria. One took place right next to Chibok, by the Cameroon border, from where more than 200 school girls were abducted last month.

    Top White House officials have reportedly been holding private meetings with lawmakers this week to boost support for the president’s foreign policy strategy, although the outreach effort appears to have left some lawmakers confused and upset. Sen. Bob Corker (R-Tenn.) described a meeting with White House chief of staff Denis McDonough and National Security Adviser Susan Rice earlier this week as “one of the most bizarre I've attended on Foreign Relations on foreign policy in our country.” “I know several of us were involved in a very bizarre discussion last night. This continues a very bizarre discussion,” Corker added, according...

    There’s a popular graphic/meme going around on Facebook, showing a picture of Rod Serling, the host of the old black-and-white TV show The Twilight Zone, with bold text as follows: “Imagine, if you will, a world run by psychopaths…” Michelle Obama, her husband, and the direction of our entire government and country sicken and disgust me so much that lately I have lost interest in paying too much attention to the endless malevolent offenses, corruptions, and scandals. But let me heave something into your lap for a minute. The evidence points to Barack Obama, Hillary Clinton, The New York Times,...
