    Despite the fact that France has some of the strictest gun-control laws in the world, the massacre of over 100 people in Paris by gun and bomb wielding Islamic terrorists has inspired Rep. Jan Schakowsky (D-Ill) to call for more stringent gun-control regulations in America. “I don’t mean to belittle the grief felt by so many after the tragic events in Paris, but I shudder to think how much worse it would have been if the victims had been armed,” Schakowsky said. “Bullets could have been coming from every direction. Police would have been confused over who were the perpetrators.”...

    Invitation List Looms as Test for Syria Talks By SOMINI SENGUPTA NOV. 9, 2015 When world powers gather in Vienna this weekend to discuss a possible postwar political deal for Syria, one of the main points of contention will be to determine whom to include among opposition groups in future negotiations — and the West may back groups that are less than “moderate,” Britain’s top diplomat said on Monday.

    While there is as yet no direct evidence of Moscow’s complicity in the Paris terrorist attacks – and if those were well-organized by its special services, no one would expect there to be – Moscow is clearly the chief beneficiary of those acts of violence, according to the Kyiv Center for Research on the Army, Conversion and Disarmament. Analysts there told Kseniya Kirillova “the tragedy in Paris fits perfectly into the strategy of ‘a multiplicity of conflicts’ which Moscow is methodically conducting. ‘The maximum destabilization of the situation in the EU will increasingly shatter European and Euro-Atlantic solidarity’ Moreover, there...

    Despite what Donald Trump and many other politicians have told you, the major threat to America isnt Muslim extremism. In fact, statistics show that the real danger lies with domestic extremists who arent of the Muslim faith. The New York Times reported back in June that since Sept. 11, 2001, almost twice as many people have died at the hands of white supremacists and other non-Muslim extremists than by radical Muslims. Using data compiled by New America, a Washington Research center, a study found that 48 people have been killed by extremists who are not Muslimincluding the mass killings in...

But note that no elite Westerner wants to face the cause of the malady: namely, that the failure in the Third World to adopt Western ideas of consensual government, equality between the sexes, free-market capitalism, individual liberty, and transparent meritocracy logically leads to mayhem and poverty. Westerners are afraid to explain why the non-West suffers and what it might do to end its own miseries. To...

"Both groups relegate women to second class status," Clinton claimed. "Both deny women the right to control their reproductive heath. Both would force women to be vessels for carrying unwanted children into the world. Both espouse out-of-date ideas about how the world should work." GOP presidential contender Sen.

Some 18,000 civilians have been trapped with limited food and water in the Yarmouk camp near Syria's capital, caught between government forces and dueling rebel groups. Their already-tenuous situation deteriorated sharply last week when ISIS launched a push to seize control of the camp from rival armed groups like the al Qaeda-linked Nusra Front, setting off street battles and mounting alarm for those trapped in the crossfire.

    The takeaway is that images are the most powerful means of communication. The human brain is designed to process images rather than words, and it may even be instinctive for us to accept any image as the truth. This was certainly the case until our ancestors learned to draw pictures. Images can also fascinate us and hold our attention in seconds, in contrast to words, in which the Propaganda Man may lose interest. Psychological warfare, therefore, involves the planned and scientific use of images to win the Propaganda Man's support. The purpose of these images is not, like a Charlie...

    U.S. military officials believe that the Iraqi offensive to retake Mosul from the militant group ISIS could come as early as April and involve between 20,000 to 25,000 Iraqi troops. The plan could be delayed depending on training and equipment schedules for the Iraq troops that would be involved in the offensive, a U.S. Central Command official said, noting that ISIS is on the defensive and that the U.S. military plan against ISIS is slightly ahead of the campaign. The official provided unusually detailed plans in a briefing for Pentagon reporters about the long-awaited push by Iraqi forces to retake...

In the letter obtained by Breitbart News, Norquist accuses Center for Security Policy (CSP) president Frank Gaffney, a former official in Ronald Reagans Pentagon, of being a stalker he has had...

Hundreds of Islamic State fighters reportedly captured most of al-Baghdadi, which is 55 miles from the capital Ramadi, on Thursday. On Friday, Iraqi soldiers had retaken several government buildings, but the soldiers withdrew early Saturday, handing the town back to the militants, The...

    It sounds like some kind of mysterious demographic whodunnit: "The case of the missing Jews." Except its no real mystery. After years of hostility, both at the government and personal level, declining fertility rates and growing emigration, Jews now make up their smallest share of Europes population in hundreds of years.

    When Islamic extremists snatched more than 270 girls from the Chibok boarding school in Nigeria in the dead of night, protests broke out worldwide. The U.S. pledged to help find them, and the #BringBackOurGirls hashtag was born. Some 10 months later, most are still missing. The Boko Haram extremist group sees the mass kidnapping as a shining symbol of success, and has abducted hundreds of other girls, boys and women. The militants brag to their new captives about the surrender of the Chibok girls, their conversion to Islam and their marriage to fighters. "They told me the Chibok girls have...

    President Obama has raised some eyebrows by suggesting that the shooting at a Kosher supermarket in Paris last month was random. It was a comment the president made in making the case that the media overstates the terrorist threat and that his job fighting terrorism is akin to a big-city mayor fighting crime. Asked about the president's suggestion that the market was not targeted by the group because it was Kosher, White House spokesman Josh Earnest doubled down on Obama's characterization that the selection of target was "random." Here's my exchange with Earnest at today's White House press briefing:

    Why does the Obama administration ignore the will of the people, the will of Congress and even the will of the international community? Thanks to Obamas ideology of narcissistic self-empowerment there is no unity in the United States or on the international stage unless it is the unity of our enemies. Why is this President so small? Why does he treat Congress, the Constitution and those Americans who object to his pursuit of dictatorial powers as mere speed bumps; a sideshow which detracts from what he knows to be right? This country has been prosperous and free because government stayed...

    A top Iranian military leader claims that U.S. officials have been begging us to sign a nuclear deal during closed door negotiations with Tehran over its contested nuclear program, according to recent comments made to the Iranian state-controlled media. Mohammad Reza Naghdi, the commander of the Basij, a paramilitary group operating under the wing of the Iranian Revolutionary Guard Corp (IRGC), recently claimed that the Americans are begging us for a deal on the negotiation table, according to comments published in Persian and independently translated for the Washington Free Beacon. Naghdi added that American officials routinely plea with Iran in...

    Recent TV news segments, op-ed pieces, public debates and letters to the editor have debated the issue of whether it is unfair, bigoted, overbroad or dangerous to implicate Islam in the reign of violence and terror that has embroiled much of the world over the past several years. Where does the truth, as difficult as defining "truth" is, lie? Rarely in the debate is there much factual data. In 2013 the PEW Research Center conducted extensive surveys on attitudes in the Muslim world. The results (at least to this writer) are stunning. Three hundred million Muslims believe that Sharia-prescribed...
