    Presidential candidate Carly Fiorina was spotted in the security line at the Newark airport. She was traveling to Oklahoma City for a private event and then to Iowa to attend the Family Leader Foundation Presidential Family Forum Friday night. Like everyone else, Fiorina took her shoes off as she went through the security line. No one approached her as she moved through the security check or after at the terminal's sole sit-down restaurant, Earl of Sandwich, where she ate. Her modest travel is a stark contrast as Donald Trump and Ben Carson obtain Secret Service.

    The Satanic Temple has a message for alienated U.S. Muslims: Let’s be friends. American satanists who recently tried to install a bronze Baphomet statue near a Ten Commandments monument in Oklahoma now want to ally with alienated Muslims. The organization’s offer comes less than one week after Islamic terror attacks in Paris, France, killed 129 and injured more than 350. “If there is anyone in the San Jose region who is Muslim and afraid to leave their home out of fear for some kind of backlash, don’t hesitate to reach out to us.

    TULSA — The Veterans Day parade in Tulsa is one of the largest in the country each year, but this year one float in particular is getting a lot of attention. The Council on American-Islamic Relations, or CAIR, applied for and was granted a spot in the 2015 parade. That doesn't sit well with some people, including Tulsan Larry Williamson. "The organization is anti-American," Williamson tells KRMG. "It's part of the Muslim Brotherhood, at least it's a member of the Muslim Brotherhood Palestine Committee. This is not according to me, it's according to the FBI." He said he doesn't object...

(1) But the obvious question is WHY? And why kill Kenneth Trentadue at all? He was no more than a face in the crowd, hardly distinguished or distinguishable from tens of millions of others throughout the United States.

Erickson recounted on his blog Wednesday that despite the effort by conservative House members like Reps. Jim Bridenstine (R-Okla.), Thomas Massie (R-Ky.), and Steve King (R-Iowa), Boehner was reinstated as Speaker by a slim margin of victory in January. He credited Boehners victory to his ironclad agreement to conservatives that he would fight tooth and nail against President Obamas executive amnesty on the Department of Homeland Security. Boehner broke that promise and funded DHS with barely...
