    I was recently asked my opinion about the current state of affairs, and thought some of you might be interested. Or not. ===================================================== Hi Cousin You asked my thoughts about Paris, so here they are. What we are seeing is not a clash of civilizations, but rather a clash between civilization and barbarism. Paris is but the latest consequence of The West 1) failing to recognize/address barbarism, and 2) losing faith in civilization itself. In short, Paris is the well-deserved consequence of The West's aggregate contempt for its own Christian heritage. G.K. Chesterton once said that when a people no...
  • Dumb Responses to the Paris Attacks

    The recent attacks in Paris have inspired various half-baked proposals to prevent terrorism in the United States. Here are four of the dumbest. Collect everyone's phone records. Three days after ISIS gunmen and suicide bombers killed 130 people in Paris, CIA Director John Brennan blamed surveillance restrictions that were imposed in response to information leaked by former National Security Agency contractor, Edward Snowden. "In the past several years," he said, "because of a number of unauthorized disclosures and a lot of hand wringing over the government's role in the effort to try to uncover these terrorists, there have been some...

    In a move dubbed "surreal" by a leading UN watchdog, and as a campaign of daily Palestinian terrorist attacks continues to target Israelis, the United Nations General Assembly on Tuesday adopted six resolutions - all of which bar none condemned Israel. Not a single mention was made of the Palestinian attacks, which have left 22 Israelis dead and hundreds wounded, nor did any other countries - even serial human rights violators such as Saudi Arabia, Iran, Russia and others - receive any of the General Assembly's attention. More disturbingly still, five of the the UNGA resolutions were sponsored by the...

    Watch the video at the link. Republican presidential contender Ted Cruz slammed President Obama on "The Kelly File" tonight for being so weak in the fight against radical Islamic terror. "It's gotten to the point that I don't think 'Saturday Night Live' can even parody this president anymore," Cruz said, pointing out that Obama said that next week's climate change summit in Paris would be a "powerful rebuke" to terrorists." "President Obama and John Kerry have both said that they think, essentially, your SUV in the driveway is a greater threat to our security than is ISIS, than is a...

    In the aftermath of the terrorist attacks in Paris on Friday, Nov. 13, it has come to light that Brian Williams was actually on the ground reporting from all the physical attack locations in Paris simultaneously. Apparently, Mr. Williams -- slightly injured in the attacks -- interviewed Hillary Clinton, and she stated that the cause of the attacks was a YouTube film. When asked to identify which film, she said that that information was highly classified and contained on one of her personal file servers which has been temporarily misplaced. Immediately after the 3 explosions outside the Stade de France...

Charles's comments — in an interview broadcast Monday — came exactly one week before the start of a United Nations climate change conference in Paris, where he plans to deliver a keynote address. Unless world leaders take action to slow the impact of climate change, "it’s going to get so much worse," Charles warned in the interview with Sky News, which was recorded before the Nov. 13 terrorist attacks in Paris.

    The Paris terrorist attackers conducted prior surveillance of at least some of the locations they attacked and showed signs of tactical planning and military-style training, a new U.S. intelligence bulletin says. The bulletin issued by the FBI, Homeland Security department and the National Counterterrorism Center warns U.S. law enforcement to review training to deal with active shooters, according to U.S. officials.

    French intelligence officials were not aware until days after this month's deadly terror attack on Paris that the suspected mastermind of the carnage had a female cousin living just north of the capital, according to a published report. The Wall Street Journal reports that information provided by Moroccan intelligence tied Hasna Houlahcen to Abdelhamid Abaaoud, enabling authorities to launch the raid that killed the two relatives this past Wednesday in Saint-Denis. However, that lapse and others has left France's security services with uncomfortable questions to answer as the country reels from a second deadly act of terror following the attacks...

Why would ISIS descend upon the Global Warming Poohbahs of 195 nations when their leaders have already sent out the capital letter-message that it is definitely global warming—and not Islamic terrorism—that is the world’s biggest threat? For a rampaging ISIS, no other message could possibly be as explicit as that...

    So Brussels is on lockdown due to the heightened terror threat. Trains have been canceled, people have been told to stay away from crowded areas, meaning that the center is deserted and sporting events have been postponed. It's no surprise really, because about half a mile northwest of Brussels' city center lies the shabby suburb of Molenbeek. It is one of Brussels' nineteen districts. This run down area of the Belgian capital has become the epicenter of a media storm during the past week as a number of the terrorists behind the appalling Paris attacks came from Molenbeek.

    When terrorists murdered four French Jews at a Paris deli in January 2015, President Obama, in keeping with his 2012 U.N. pledge to protect “the prophet of Islam” against “slander,” referred to the victims as “a bunch of folks” who were shot “randomly.” We were spared a similarly absurd characterization when terrorists murdered some 90 Bataclan Theater concertgoers and injured many more on November 13, possibly because Obama may not have known that the Bataclan was a Jewish target. But the terrorists knew. Here’s the background.

He said that Iran is on the brink of becoming a nuclear power, and warned Israel and the U.S. against attacking its nuclear facilities. Asked about the possibility of a U.S.-supported Israeli air strike against Iran, the fiery Iranian leader said an attack would be considered an act of war, and suggested the U.S. is unprepared for the consequences.

Currently, 54 percent of U.S. adults disapprove of the way in which Obama is handling terrorism threats, the worst such rating in his White House career, according to an ABC News/Washington Post poll released Friday. Forty-three percent of Americans disapprove strongly of the president's handling of terror threats. Americans are particularly critical of Obama's response to the Islamic State (IS, also known as ISIL or ISIS), the terrorist group that claimed responsibility for the deadly attacks in...

    Full title: 'Christmas is a charade': Pope says atrocities such as Paris massacre have made festivities meaningless in a world which has chosen 'war and hate'... The Pope has called Christmas a 'charade' during a sermon in which he reflected on recent atrocities around the world. Among the acts of inhumanity he denounced were the Paris attacks, which left 129 dead, and the bombing of a Russian airliner over Egypt, which killed all 224 people on board. Christmas festivities will seem empty in a world which has chosen 'war and hate', Pope Francis said yesterday at the Vatican.

    Russian authorities have gifted France with an adorable police dog in a show of support following the massive terror attack that killed 130 people and a shepherd named Diesel that was blown to pieces by a suicide bomber. Diesel, a Belgian Malinois, died in a hail of gunfire by female suicide bomber, Hansa Aitboulahcen, during an anti-terror raid in suburban Saint-Denis on Wednesday, according to France's National Police. Now, the Russian government is sending over Dobrynia, a furry new companion named after a Russian folklore hero to help "in the fight against terrorism," Russian government officials said.

    It's always the things you don't expect that get you. After banking scandals, currency issues, and a Greek/Portugese/Spanish debt crisis just about every six months, the economic and political partnership that is the European Union seems much more likely to fall apart for an entirely different reason after all. That reason is ISIS. This is a political nightmare for the statist bureaucrats who have been working for decades to reduce true representative democracy all for the goal of a unified and monolithic economic entity without worrying about being hindered by annoying little things like the will of the people. Before...

    PARIS (AP) -- Riding the Paris Metro to the city's Grand Mosque for prayers, Samia Mahfoudia says people shoot sideways looks at her 'almost as if they were saying 'Get off.' Ahmed El Mziouzi, a Moroccan who has called France home for 42 years, says he's seen people staring at Muslims like him "a bit bizarrely" since attackers claiming to be acting in the name of Islam massacred 130 people, traumatizing the city.

    More than nine in every ten Germans support the government increasing security measures on German streets in the wake of the Paris terror attacks. The regular Deutschlandtrend poll by broadcaster ARD showed that 91 percent of Germans support "appropriate security measures" such as the heavier police presence and security checks which were announced in the immediate aftermath of last Friday's Paris terrorist attacks. At the same time, only five percent of those questioned were afraid that such security measures could impinge on their constitutional rights. ...

    We must act now. Not only will ISIS be on the ash heap of history, but we will win-over the Muslim world which is watching to see strength or weakness. Appeasement isn't working. It is time for violence “To conquer, we must destroy our enemies. We must not only die gallantly; we must kill devastatingly. The faster and more effectively you kill, the longer you will live”

    resident Obama rightly hailed France as our oldest ally in his remarks immediately after the Parris terrorist attacks last week. And then he said this: "This is an attack not just on Paris, it's an attack not just on the people of France, but this is an attack on all of humanity and the universal values that we share." The Paris massacre was not an attack on all humanity. A large portion of humanity is cheering on the terrorists. This was also not an attack on "universal values" we all supposedly share. It was an attack on Western civilization and...
  • The Multiculturalism Crisis That Creates and Hides Terrorists

    In the wake of the ISIS-backed shooting spree in Paris, France, its important to note that there is a cultural shift that has occurred in France (and is also occurring in the United States) that served as the building blocks for such evil to hide among its citizens. The United States and France are both creating "Pods" of people who, by their nature, hide the terrorists among them. Until the 1980s, French immigrants were required to assimilate into the culture of France. They had to learn the language and heritage. But political leaders decided, under the premise of political correctness,...
