    Our President, a self-proclaimed Christian, visited a mosque in Baltimore a short time ago for the first time in his Presidency. During a press conference held at the mosque, Obama said that Muslim Americans keep us safe and that Islam has always been a part of America. There has not been a time in my memory when Obama has described the nation’s Founding Fathers with similar reverence. But of course, the Founders were basically Christian and used Christian principles in the drafting of the documents that are the foundation of our country. Americans should be embarrassed by this man and...

    Erdogan’s major difference with ISIS is where the Islamic caliphate ultimately should be based. He believes in the restoral of a caliphate under Ottoman rule While admitting that he was not in possession of all of the facts regarding Turkey’s downing of a Russian warplane on November 24th, President Obama was quick to blame only Russia. He said at a joint news conference with French President Francois Hollande that Turkey had “a right to defend its territory and its airspace.” Obama also criticized Russia for propping up Syrian President Assad by going after the so-called “moderate” rebels rather than concentrating...

    While stressing that Washington’s primary goal remained “limited and proportional” attacks, to degrade Syria’s chemical weapons capabilities and deter their future use, the president hinted at a broader long-term mission that may ultimately bring about a change of regime. “It also fits into a broader strategy that can bring about over time the kind of strengthening of the opposition and the diplomatic, economic and political pressure required – so that ultimately we have a transition that can bring peace and stability, not only to Syria but to the region,” he told senior members of Congress at a White House meeting...

    An angry mother has accused a primary school of denying her child water on one of the hottest days of the year for fear of upsetting pupils observing Ramadan. Kora Blagden, 32, claimed a teacher at her son Luke’s school refused to let the 10-year old drink from his water bottle because it was unfair to fasting classmates. Many pupils at Charles Dickens Primary School, Portsmouth, Hampshire, are fasting during Ramadan, which means they refrain from taking food or water between sunrise and sunset for around 30 days, depending on the moon. Mother-of-four Kora said: 'Just before bedtime me and...

    For anyone who has eyes to see and ears to hear, and who is not terminally obtuse, the present incumbent of the Oval Office has deliberately helped engineer Islam's latest and successful lust for world domination through sharia law and geopolitical contrivance. The Muslim cry of "first the Saturday people and then the Sunday people" is a chilling reminder of the determination by an overwhelming majority of Islam's followers to rule over Jews and Christians, forcing them into servitude and second-class citizenship wherever they may be. .....The evil clown, Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, Iran's president, vomited his latest obscenity last Friday when...

    Infiltration of the federal government by members of the radical Muslim Brotherhood is worse than some have warned recently, says a former FBI special agent in Washington. The agent confirmed that at least three operatives of the Egypt-based Brotherhood – whose credo is "Jihad is our way and death in the cause of Allah is our dream" – have penetrated the Obama administration. The shocking charge was first leveled by Muslim reformer Tarek Fatah during a recent speech in Toronto. "Today in the White House, there are three members of the Muslim Brotherhood that influence Obama's policy," he told the...

    Glenn Beck Show: Islamic Caliphate Coming Soon. On Yesterday’s Glenn Beck Show, Glenn had on one of his friends (seems like many of his guests are his friends), an author/Middle East expert by the name of Joel Rosenberg, whose latest book is “The Twelfth Imam.” Together, Beck and the guest went over why the instability in Egypt is so relevant to the establishment of an Islamic caliphate. According to Rosenberg, the first step in creating the imminent Islamic caliphate is for the Muslims to focus on both Jerusalem as well as Saudi Arabia’s Mecca and Medina. Since they already possess...

    RIYADH (Reuters) - The creation of an Islamic caliphate, or empire, has long formed part of al Qaeda's world view, and it is a vision that seems to have unsettled Washington. But experts say it will remain just a militants' dream. Before he went into hiding in 2001, Osama bin Laden often talked of deposing Muslim rulers, seen as beholden to Western powers, and abolishing modern state borders to unite all Muslims under a caliphate -- an Islamic state where God's word was law ruled over by a caliph, or "successor" to Prophet Mohammad. Now al Qaeda militants are talking...
