  • Homeland Security Chief: We won’t call Chattanooga ‘Islamic terrorism’ out of respect for Muslims

    Why won’t the Obama administration call Fort Hood Islamic Terrorism? Why aren’t they calling Chattanooga Islamic Terrorism? Because it’s disrespect to Muslims and Islam is about peace: ARUTZ SHEVA – Homeland Security chief Jeh Johnson announced the policy this past Friday at Aspen Institute’s annual security forum in Washington, D.C. He explained that though it was a Muslim terrorist who shot to death four unarmed Marines in Tennessee two weeks ago, the government will call the attack, and other similar ones, “violent extremism” and not “Islamic terrorism” – out of respect for the Muslim community. Johnson said it is “critical”...

    Secretary of State John Kerry said a rejection of the nuclear deal with Iran by the U.S. Congress would put Israel at risk of being "more isolated and more blamed." Speaking in New York on Friday before members of the Council on Foreign Relations think tank, Kerry declared there are "no alternatives" to the nuclear agreement the United States and five other world powers struck with Iran. A clear focus in Kerry's message on Friday was his past and continuing support for Israel, even recalling his 100% voting record for Israel during his time as senator. With the deal, Kerry...

    This is breathtaking in its own fanaticism—and in the ignorance that, one might have hoped, would have been tucked away after Romney’s 2012 presidential defeat at the hands of a lackluster incumbent. A survey of recent Iranian history suggests that its leaders, while starkly fundamentalist in their religious sensibility, conduct foreign policy based on a logical understanding of their national interests and an often brilliant pursuit of them within the context of geopolitical reality. They certainly never sent an army halfway around the world to overthrow the leader of a sovereign state with the intent of establishing a beachhead for...

    Nevada Sen. Dean Heller knew it wasn’t a good idea to ban arms from our military bases and recruiting centers, which is why in June—weeks before the Chattanooga attack—he submitted an amendment to the 2016 National Defense Authorization Act which would “give military base commanders the authority to allow service members to carry personal firearms.” Unfortunately, his amendment was blocked, by none other than Sen. John McCain. The Republican senator explained in an interview on the Lars Larson Show that McCain, who’s the Senate Armed Services Committee Chairman, “didn’t want the amendment as part of the [2016 National Defense Authorization]...

    Did the extreme amount of attention southern politicians gave to the Charleston killer cause the recent Chattanooga killings? Was the Chattanooga killer hoping for the same amount of attention the Charleston killer received? The timing of the Chattanooga killings could be a coincidence but such killings are not that common and two of them have occurred in southern states within a month of each other. They occurred in the same time period as the trial of the Colorado theater killer with its national publicity. I didn’t catch the man’s name, but a recent newscast included a comment by the relative...

    “Be nice or leave.” That is the admonition given by a friendly Chattanooga neighborhood nestled just across the Tennessee River, between the Lookout and Signal mountains. Obviously there are some who did not heed that advice. Who would have thought that a tragedy like we have just seen could have happened in such a nice place? The answer may surprise you. We brought it upon ourselves! The murderer in this instance was Youssef Mohammad Abdulazeez. And political correctness being what it is, CNN would not use his name for fear it might suggest that he is a Muslim. In a...

    Four innocent Marines (United States Marine Corps) killed and three others wounded in ‪#‎Chattanooga‬ yesterday including a policeman and another Marine--all by a radical Muslim whose family was allowed to immigrate to this country from Kuwait. We are under attack by Muslims at home and abroad. We should stop all immigration of Muslims to the U.S. until this threat with Islam has been settled. Every Muslim that comes into this country has the potential to be radicalized--and they do their killing to honor their religion and Muhammad. During World War 2, we didn't allow Japanese to immigrate to America, nor...

    SPRINGFIELD — He was a hero right to the end, according to those who served with Marine Gunnery Sgt. Thomas Sullivan, one of four Marines killed in a deadly attack in Chattanooga, Tennessee, on Thursday, in what some officials are calling an ISIS-inspired attack. Sullivan, a Springfield native raised in East Forest Park, was running to save his wounded colleagues when he, too, was shot. He didn't survive. Known as "Gunny" to his fellow Marines, Sullivan "died a hero yesterday," Marine Sgt. Amanda Vincent told Sullivan's family, who gathered Friday at the Hampden home of his parents, Gerry and Betty...

Sen. Ted Cruz (R) Texas is not a fan of the Iran deal that President Barack Obama announced on Tuesday. Indeed, he told CQ Roll Call Tuesday it will fund murder. If the deal goes into effect, it “will result in the United States government becoming one of the leading funders of international terrorism,” and that “those American dollars will be used to murder Americans, to murder...
