It is impossible to have a mature discussion about mosques in the U.S. It is impossible to point out that 80% of mosques in the U.S. are Saudi-funded, and that four separate, independent studies since 1998 have found that 80% also teach hatred of Jews and Christians and the supremacy of Sharia over Constitutional law.

The Presidents tepid response this afternoon was disappointing.

Titled the Muslim Brotherhood Terrorist Designation Act of 2014, the proposed legislation provides extensive evidence proving why the organization, which has recently been designated a a terrorist group by both Egypt and Saudi Arabia, satisfies the federal requirements to be placed on the official FTO...

    Honor Diaries is a movie that tells the story of nine womens rights advocates. Now, when you read the phrase womens rights advocates, you might think its the kind of movie that liberals would truly appreciate. Sadly, we havent seen any evidence of that... Honor Diaries is about the way that women are abused in countries dominated by Muslims. Therefore, the truth portrayed in that movie is politically incorrect.... Leave it to Fox News to do the job that the alleged truth-seekers in the rest of the media wont do. Megyn Kelly discussed the movie on he program the other...

    The Muslim Brotherhood front group, CAIR (the Council of American-Islamic Relations) is actively trying to deny us our right to free speech. Not only has CAIR tweeted in opposition to our upcoming Exposing the Muslim Brotherhood in the Heartland events next week (in Lincoln and Omaha, NE), with our guest, bestselling author and activist, Robert Spencer, theyve also been able to wield their fear filled influence with the main stream media, who continues to deny exposure to these national security issues every time they have a chance. ... the Muslim Brotherhood has been outlawed in most Muslim countries, not because...

    Attorney General Eric Holder told a House Appropriations subcommittee on Friday that his department doesnt have a formal relationship with a controversial Islamic group while a chairman argued that an interpretation of the law has inexplicably tied the Pentagons hands in nabbing the Benghazi attackers. At a hearing to review the Justice Departments FY 2015 budget request, Appropriations Subcommittee on Commerce, Justice, Science, and Related Agencies Chairman Frank Wolf (R-Va.) reminded Holder, the sole witness, that last year the DOJ was directed to follow the lead of the FBI to keep distance between government officials and individuals or organizations associated...

    The Council on American-Islamic Relations, known as CAIR, has been exerting intense political pressure to cancel scheduled screenings of Honor Diaries, depicting practices in Muslim countries, described in the film as systematic, institutionalized misogyny. Agnieszka Karoluk, representing CAIR-Chicago, was unable to dispute the films claims after being challenged by Fox News Megyn Kelly, but instead found fault with its producers, the Clarion Project. [Its] a well-known, Islamophobic organization, she claimed. What Im personally disgusted by as a Muslim woman, as a feminist is that someone like the Clarion Project would take this film and use it to promote their own...

    Honor Diaries is the first film to break the silence on 'honor violence' against women and girls. Honor Diaries is more than a movie, it is a movement to save women and girls from gender inequality, forced marriages and human rights abuses.

    Islamofascism: With an eye toward the 2016 election, the radical Muslim Brotherhood has built the framework for a political party in America that seeks to turn Muslims into an Islamist voting bloc. 'Muslim voters have the potential to be swing voters in 2016," said Nihad Awad in launching the benign-sounding U.S. Council of Muslim Organizations, whose membership reads like a Who's Who of Brotherhood front groups. "We are aiming to bring more participation from the Muslim community." USCMO also aims to elect Islamists in Washington, with the ultimate objective of "institutionalizing policies" favorable to Islamists that is, Shariah law....

    Without having even seen an episode, CAIRs Los Angeles branch pressured the network to rethink the project. The activism of the Council on American-Islamic Relations has been well documented by many sources over the past several years. Whenever the group senses the slightest insult against the Islamic, it demands the offending party immediately cease whatever activity has been deemed inappropriate. While Christians and Jews routinely face hateful attacks on their faith, they are expected to absorb such abuse based on Americas First Amendment protections. Most believers understand this; and, though the pejoratives might sting, they generally respect the constitutional right...

    DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) Known nationally as a fiery fiscal conservative, U.S. Sen. Ted Cruz channeled his pastor father and displayed his religious side Tuesday, telling an influential group of Iowa home school advocates that America was founded on Christian values Washington cant deny. The Tea Party darlings declaration of his beliefs came during his fourth trip to Iowa in barely eight months and though he has refused to comment on a possible 2016 White House run, Cruz logging so much face time in the state that kicks off presidential voting hasnt gone unnoticed. There is no liberty...

    Some might say these are all isolated incidents. But connect these dots:this week we reportedon the activists tied to the Muslim Brotherhood hosting a Democrat fundraiser. The Muslim Brotherhoods ownExplanatory Memorandumsays their work in America is a kind of grand Jihad in eliminating and destroying the Western civilization from within and sabotaging its miserable house by their hands and the hands of the believers. Our own president said, I consider it part of my responsibility as President of the United States to fight against negative stereotypes of Islam wherever they appear. So is it any surprise that the Council on...
