    Delivering remarks on domestic terrorism at an event co-sponsored by the George Washington University’s program on extremism and the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC), Assistant Attorney General John P. Carlin announced on Wednesday the creation of a new position within the Department of Justice (DOJ) aimed at investigating violent extremism. “We are here to talk about combating domestic terrorism, which the FBI has explained as ‘Americans attacking Americans based on U.S.-based extremist ideologies.’ The threat ranges from individuals motivated by anti-government animus, to eco-radicalism and racism,” stated Carlin. He continued, “Homegrown violent extremists can be motivated by any viewpoint on...

    Senior figures of the Christian Democratic Union (CDU) voiced their views on the party’s direction to German media outlets this weekend, ahead of Chancellor Angela Merkel’s cabinet selections on Sunday and the party’s vote on the grand coalition agreement, to take place on Monday. While the SPD members vote over whether to join the grand coalition, Merkel’s conservatives are doing some soul searching over whether their party should remain in the center, as it has throughout her leadership, or shift to the right to try and win back lost voters. “Sometimes the conservative element of the conservative bloc could be...

    Since President Enrique Peńa Nieto won in 2012, the Mexican presidential elections of 2018 has had one clear contender: Andrés Manuel López Obrador. Not one to give up easily, Mr. Lopez Obrador has twice run for president as candidate of the left-wing party the PRD (in 2006 and 2012) and has already expressed he will do so again, as the Morena candidate. Since its undeniable success in the mid-term elections, Morena, will now have a substantial amount of funding and a visible platform from which to prepare Mr. Lopez Obrador´s candidacy. Regarding Mexico´s three main political parties, there is less...

    Full title : 60 Minutes claims 74% of “extremist-related killings” in US in last 10 years by “right-wing extremists,” not jihadis This is a completely false statistic, designed to foster ignorance and complacency about the nature and magnitude of the jihad threat. And the establishment media repeats it, or variations of it, relentlessly. Here is why it is false: 1. It misleads immediately by covering only the last ten years. Why that period? What changed between 2006 and 2007? Why not go back 20 years? Because then the survey period would include 9/11, and would show Islamic jihad terrorists killing...

    I work for a college which is very liberal these days, in your face banners and condescending "workshops" open to all frequently, with "diversity credit" (reference below). It's sickening enough. Including having Moochelle Uhbama here the other year. But since Trump was elected, now we get hand-wringing e-mails about "hatred" and that we need to beware of evil right-wing people who cause violence (LOL). Got another one today.

    Labour MP Rushanara Ali has called for marches by extremist groups be banned – but only singled out right wing demonstrators in her call for legislation. The Labour Member of Parliament for Bethnal Green and Bow made the comments Monday evening during an appearance on Sky News. Ms. Ali referred specifically to the English Defence League and the far right group Britain First saying that demonstrations from both groups should be banned in London. Ali said that the government needed to “redouble their efforts” when it came to tackling extremism. “We have seen over the years many marches here in...

    Two conservative journalists have sparked outcry on social media by making what some have interpreted as a white supremacist hand symbol at a recent visit to the White House. Freelance journalist Mike Cernovich and Cassandra Fairbanks, a reporter for Russian news outlet Sputnik, posed for a picture behind the podium in the White House briefing room. In the photo, they are making a hand sign that can be used to signify “white power.” “Just two people doing a white power hand gesture in the White House,” Fusion senior reporter Emma Roller tweeted, alongside a screenshot of the picture.

    We spoke to the author of 'The Ambivalent Internet' about the rise of the right online. Professor Whitney Phillips, author of This Is Why We Can't Have Nice Things, a book about trolling, has teamed up with Professor Ryan M Milner to pen another book about internet culture. The Ambivalent Internet is about how we express ourselves online, the ways in which we do it, why we do it and how it ends up the way it does. The book was written on the eve of Donald Trump's ascension to the world's highest office, and deals, in part, with the...

    What should conservatives do in the aftermath of violent protests like this week’s riot at the University of California, Berkeley? It’s time for self-defense according to commentator Lauren Southern of TheRebel media who issued a call for those who value freedom of speech. Southern blasted the “violent ideologues from the left” who trashed the Berkeley campus and shut down a planned speech by Breitbart editor Milo Yiannopoulos. These “scum of the earth,” she said, “beat women and sucker-punch innocent, peaceful people” while believing they are acting “for the greater good.” “It is time to get mad,” the best-selling author declared....

    Research has found that being attractive influences many things in a person's life -- their salary, their popularity and grades in school, even the prison sentences they receive. So why not their politics? A recently published study in the Journal of Public Economics concludes that the attractiveness of a candidate does correlate with their politics. They find that politicians on the right are more good looking in Europe, the United States and Australia. The study shows correlation, not causation, but the researchers float a simple economic explanation for why this might happen. Numerous studies have shown that good-looking people are...

    Besides having in common big government bureaucracies, all of these various left wing ideologies end up with an elite "ruling class" of one sort or another lording it over "we the people" Trump opposes globalism. Hillary thrives on it. Globalism is far more than “geographical” or “eliminating national borders and boundaries.” It is spiritual and demonic at its core. Few—very few—understand this. ...Trump understands that it is 11:59 p.m. on the “cultural clock.” America is near the end—morally, economically, militarily and, sadly, spiritually.—Dr. Jim Garlow “If You’re On the Fence About Your Vote, This Pastor Clarifies How the Very Future...

    "It's pumped into cars and bars and VFW halls all across America." President Obama visited Elkhart, Indiana on Wednesday and during a town hall meeting blamed "right-wing radio" for distorting his economic record and for making "people think big government is the problem." "I hope you don't mind me being blunt about this," the president said, "but I've been listening to this stuff for a while now and I'm concerned when I watch the direction of our politics." When Obama visited Elkhart seven years ago, the unemployment rate was near 20%. Now, he boasts that the rate has dropped...

    A number of former Facebook employees have revealed that the popular social media site adjusts the news stories it presents in order to encourage a liberal bias. The whistleblowers, who asked to remain anonymous, told Gizmodo that the site’s “news curators” were told to modify the “trending news” section by hiding stories that supported conservative attitudes and promoting others that interested liberals. […] One of the most direct examples described in Gizmodo was the Black Lives Matter movement, which largely grew out of social media posts. While it was in its early stages, Facebook decided to actively intervene in order...

    A new poll has found that youth in Israel are increasingly right-wing in their political opinions, and are overwhelmingly Zionist and loyal to their country. The survey, conducted by the New Wave Research institute for Israel Hayom and published in part on Wednesday, asked 11th and 12th graders to define their political position. A full 59% defined themselves as right-wing, while another 23% said they were centrist, and only 13% identified as leftist. Another 5% said they have no position. A whopping 82% said there is no chance of reaching a deal of some sort with the Palestinian Arabs, indicating...

    Hillary Clinton agrees there is still a "vast right-wing conspiracy" and if anything it has only become more richly financed. During the New Hampshire town hall debate on Wednesday night, CNN host Anderson Cooper asked Clinton if she still believes there is a "vast right-wing conspiracy" as she said there was during the late 90s to initially explain the Monica Lewinksy scandal. "Don't you?" Clinton replied, as the audience laughed. "Yeah. It's gotten even better funded." "They brought in some new multibillionaires to pump the money in. Look, these guys play for keeps. "They want to control our country." "I've...

    Jane Mayer of The New Yorker has a new book out: “Dark Money: The Hidden History of the Billionaires Behind the Rise of the Radical Right.” It’s mostly about those old devils the Koch brothers. Charles and David Koch are billionaires. They own a very big company. They also are very prominent philanthropists, giving hundreds of millions to cancer research, concert halls and other worthy causes. But what makes them hated and feared by progressives such as Mayer is their political work. They help fund some organizations and foundations, some purely educational, some partisan. To listen to the left, they...

    ...Hillary Rodham Clinton yesterday launched a vigorous counterattack on behalf of her husband's beleaguered presidency, declaring that the president is the victim of a "politically motivated" prosecutor allied with a "vast right-wing conspiracy." Using a nationally televised interview as her forum, she assumed a familiar and crucial role as Bill Clinton's first defender. She said she knew him better than anyone in the world, still loved him, and fully believed his denial of allegations that he had entered into a sexual relationship with a White House intern and had urged the young woman to lie about it. The first lady's...

    Europe's migrant invasion, coupled with strengthening support for Marine Le Pen's National Front (NF) is causing panic in French political circles. The situation is perceived as so dire that Prime Minister Manuel Valls is considering alliances between the centre right, and even far left factions to attempt to see off the threat from Ms. Le Pen's party. A report in Liberation suggests all options are on the table for Mr. Valls as the traditional French political landscape fractures. The newspaper reports the prime minister is already hearing privately from his advisers that "a new republican front" – or merger of...
