    A senior military officer revealed that the head of the Al Qaeda-linked Abu Sayyaf terror group, who carries a $1 million cash reward of his head offered by the US, planned to surrender because he was “already old.” Lieutenant General Carlito Galvez, the head of the military’s Western Mindanao Command (Westmincon), said the plan of Radulah Sahiron, the Abu Sayyaf leader, to surrender was relayed to him by Moro elders from the island province of Sulu. Aside from his advancing age, Galvez said Sahiron also expressed concern over the unabated “search and destroy” operation launched by the military against him...

    Why Baptists Should Support Muslims’ Right to Build Mosques Given the shift in American demographics, it might not be long before the Baptists are once again a powerless minority. And this time, it might be Muslims before whom they are pleading for ‘soul freedom.’

    Trump cared about what matters to the old Reagan Democrats. Reagan won them for the same reason Trump did, and the GOP could have turned the rust belt red long ago had they been less interested in internationalism and oil profits “As a dog returns to his vomit, so fools repeat their folly”—Proverbs 26:11 Ever quick to snatch defeat from the jaws of victory, the GOP has not even waited for the weekend to begin systematically dismantling the stunning victory their party achieved despite their best efforts. Trump has barely had time to shower and shave before his party began...

    Children in French schools will be taught how to survive a terror attack, following a year of Islamic terrorism that shook the nation. The French government has released a statement instructing headteachers on “enhanced measures for school safety”, which outlines new security measures including preparing school children on how to survive terrorist attacks. After the Bataclan massacre in November, the French government published several circulars advising schools on increasing security. But it was after the Nice Bastille Day attack that the Interior Minister Bernard Cazeneuve and Minister for Education Najat Vallaud-Belkacem signed new measures, stating that the “security of schools...

    The commander in charge of the naval vessels that strayed into Iranian waters and were captured last January surrendered his command because he thought his sailors would be safe because Iran "wanted the nuclear deal to go through." This is only one of several revelations found in the 170-page report issued by the Pentagon about the incident. The commander's name was redacted from the report. Washington Times: In an interview with investigators looking into the January incident, the commander said he surrendered the vessels after calculating that his sailors would not be in danger because Iran “wants this nuke deal...

    "Our No. 1 goal is that Senate Republicans do their job, follow their constitutional responsibility and take up the president's nominee and put that person on the court." "But if they want a political fight, we're more than willing to accommodate them. And if they maintain this unprecedented obstruction, they can kiss their majority goodbye." The effort will include progressive organizations, labor leaders, women's groups and black ministers. On Monday, the Leadership Conference on Civil and Human Rights is releasing a letter from law school deans urging action by the Senate, Politico reports.

    John McCain has had enough… John McCain has had enough of the Pentagon’s constant stonewalling and obfuscation on everything from the Marines’ 36 million dollar study of coed Marine units’ fighting capabilities to the Army’s Ranger School cover up to the disgraceful conduct of the US Navy in the Persian Gulf last month. Senator John McCain said on Sunday he would subpoena 10 U.S. sailors to testify about their brief detention by Iran if the Obama administration does not provide the findings of an investigation into the incident by March 1. “It’s an option that I do not want to...

    The chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee is leaving open the possibility of holding a hearing for President Barack Obama's choice to fill a Supreme Court vacancy, amid signs of uncertainty about how Republicans would treat a nominee to replace the late Antonin Scalia. Sen. Charles Grassley, R-Iowa, said he backs Majority Leader Mitch McConnell's view that Obama's successor should make the nomination of a lifetime appointment. But Grassley didn't rule out holding confirmation hearings and a vote by his panel on an Obama selection. "I would wait until the nominee is made before I would make any decision," Grassley said Tuesday in a conference call with...

    Republican presidential candidate Ted Cruz on Monday called for armed protesters who occupied a federal building in Oregon to "stand down peaceably." "Every one of us has a constitutional right to protest, to speak our minds," Cruz told reporters in Iowa. "But we don‘t have a constitutional right to use force and violence and to threaten force and violence against others. So it is our hope that the protesters there will stand down peaceably, that there will not be a violent confrontation."

  • Top Democrat Admits Obama Is 'Working Hand-In-Hand With ISIS'!

    In this very fascinating interview with U.S. House of Representatives Tulsi Gabbard, a Democrat representing Hawaii, she admits something that many conservatives have suspected for a long time. Watch below (starting at the 1:45 mark) Tulsi Gabbard is a top Democrat in the Democratic National Committee but she is one of the few honest Democrats who has actually criticized Obama on his foreign policy failures. But, it must be noted that she says he's essentially working hand in hand with Islamist extremists, but she's not saying that he's actually directly working with them. She admits that his foreign policy is...

    Six Texas Republican representatives joined with the eleven Democrats in the state’s congressional delegation to vote in favor of the bill to raise the debt ceiling. Nineteen Texas Republicans voted nay in attempting to block the measure. On a national level, 79 Republicans joined with all 187 Democrat members of the House to pass the measure back to the Senate. Rep. Kevin Brady (R-TX)64% voted in favor of the bill with the Democrats, according to GovTrack.us. He announced this week that he seeks to replace Rep. Paul Ryan (R-WI)58% as chairman of the House Ways and Means Committee. Ryan is...

    It was, without question, the climax of the debate. Hillary Clinton was defending herself against email allegations, when Bernie Sanders came to her rescue. In doing so, he not only demonstrated the decency that is the hallmark of his campaign, but also proved that he's no ordinary politician. Bernie Sanders doesn't want to win the White House if it means losing his integrity. He's willing to protect even his political rival if it's in the name of justice. This campaign cannot be about emails, but only Bernie Sanders was big enough to say that, on his competitor's behalf. Bernie Sanders:...

    Over 1,000 terrorists laid down arms and surrendered to the Syrian authorities over the past 24 hours in Daraa, the Syrian local sources also confirmed. The militants also turned over their cache of ammo to the authorities, both sources added. The development came after President Bashar al-Assad in a televised address in July pardoned all soldiers who have fled the army, saying that his words served as a general decree to relevant officials. Hundreds of gunmen have been laying down their weapons and turning themselves in to authorities in areas across the country.

    President Obama and Russian Czar President Vladimir Putin went into a room at UN headquarters mano a mano and whatever happened behind those closed doors, one man came out the victor.  And it wasn’t Obama. Putin took over Syria, and that’s that. Charles Krauthammer blamed it on the “utter passivity of the United States,” that has allowed ISIS to attract 7,000 new jihadis in the last few months alone.  Some of them are from the U.S., and some of them are from Russia.  While we hand-wring our way into irrelevance, Russia is determined never to let ISIS fighters back into their country. "The irony...
