  • Will D.C. court’s decision on concealed guns be the tipping point?

    The Hill ^ | July 27, 2017
    As of July 3, there were just 124 concealed handgun permit holders in Washington, D.C. But, after a two-to-one federal Circuit court decision on Tuesday morning striking down D.C. ’s current concealed handgun law, the district has a chance to become like the 42 states with right-to-carry laws. If it were on par with those states, D.C. would have about 48,000 permits. Right now, poor people in particular have no real hope of being able to get a permit in D.C. Over 16.3 million Americans currently have concealed handgun permits. All fifty states issue permits, but eight of them are...

    Military drones such as the U.S. Predator and Reaper have soared above battlefields for more than a decade. But small consumer drones that anyone can buy online have also begun to make their presence felt in modern battlefields. The militant group Islamic State has begun turning such small drones into flying bombs in their battles across Syria and Iraq. Islamic State has used ordinary camera-carrying drones for surveillance and to film their suicide car bomb attacks for years. But the militants have more recently begun weaponizing the small drones by packing them with explosives, according to the New York Times....

    Arabs live among themselves in Syria, Iraq, Yemen, Libya, Jordan, Egypt - no Jews except a few - but are they happy? No, still they’re miserable: family feuds, tribal grudges, civil wars, thousands killed, millions homeless,brother against brother. President Trump needs to have a talk with Rex Tillerson. Tillerson’s State Department has issued a report that blames Israel for…EVERYTHING. Nobody saw that coming. Well I sure didn’t. Love Trump. Tillerson, not so much, even from the start. The report okays Arab violence as a means to redress “frustrations” and “disappointments”…such as “lack of hope in achieving Palestinian statehood.” The Jews,...

    First off, let me explain to you the difference between the Kurds in Syria and the Kurds in Iraq. The Kurds in Iraq are truly good people and they are extremely tough fighters. I love the Kurds in Iraq. The ones in Syria? Not so much. They are communists. Guess which one has a brand spanking new LGBT fighting unit? You got it… the commies. They have formed to fight ISIS there, which is a good thing, except there are no ‘good’ guys here. Sigh. The Queer Insurrection and Liberation Army, or TQILA is taking aim at the Jihadists. I’m...

    For every person lauding President Donald Trump's efforts to "Make America Great Again," another soul is staring into the depths of despair. The U.S. president certainly has his detractors—but his latest critics are an unlikely bunch: jihadis in Africa. In a new propaganda video, the Al-Qaeda affiliate Al-Shabab referred to Trump as a “brainless billionaire who’s single handedly succeeded in making the United States the greatest joke on Earth.” Al-Shabab has been battling the Western-backed Somali government for more than a decade. Recent data revealed that the group is  one of the deadliest in Africa.

    Is history going to repeat itself in the worst possible way? It took the election of Donald Trump to the Presidency to finally begin the process of systematically dismantling the stranglehold that the Islamic State (aka ISIS, aka ISIL) had on the ancient region around Mesopotamia. After murdering and torturing tens of thousands of innocents, razing countless world heritage sites, and destroying innumerable priceless artifacts, their reign of Islamic terror is finally coming to an end. At least we hope so. Given the developments in a certain Middle Eastern neighbor of Europe, which we will detail shortly, it will be...

    We’ve often heard the familiar refrain after an Islamic terror attack – terrorism is a “perversion” of Islam, and Muslims who commit acts of terror are not truly following the faith. However, the man who infiltrated the Council on American-Islamic Relations for six months begs to differ. Gaubatz has witnessed the inner workings of one of America’s largest Muslim organizations firsthand, having posed as a convert to Islam to gain a CAIR internship. He remained undercover for six months, gaining the trust of CAIR’s inner sanctum and collecting more than 12,000 pages of documents and hundreds of hours of video....

    BERLIN (Reuters) - A German teenager who joined Islamic State is now being held in detention in Iraq and says she regrets joining the jihadist group and just wants to come home to her family, media reported on Sunday. Der Spiegel magazine reported on Saturday that four German women who joined Islamic State in recent years, including a 16-year-old girl from the small town of Pulsnitz near Dresden, are being held in an Iraqi prison and receiving consular assistance. Lorenz Haase, senior public prosecutor in Dresden, said he could confirm the teenager, named only as Linda W., had been "located...
  • Pentagon Stops $300 Million Payment to Pakistan, Citing Terrorist Fight

    The Pentagon is withholding hundreds of millions of dollars meant to reimburse Pakistan for its fight against terrorist groups, citing Islamabad’s failure to take “sufficient action” against the Haqqani Network, an offshoot of the Taliban based in Pakistan. The announcement on Friday comes as Defense Secretary James Mattis and the White House debate a long-delayed strategy for the war in Afghanistan that could adopt a tougher line toward over Pakistan’s role in the conflict. Defense officials and congressional aides have for months said that the new strategy won’t focus solely on Afghanistan, but take a more regional approach. This includes...

  • Misguided Attempt to Free Thousands of Minks Goes Horribly Wrong (Libtards kill 40,000 minks)

    Between 30,000 and 40,000 farm-raised minks were released into the wild near Eden Valley, Minnesota, earlier this week when burglars—presumably animal rights activists—cut the fence to a mink-pelt farm and opened the cages holding the mammals, letting them run into the wild. Minks are strange little creatures somewhere between otters and ferrets, and when they run, their front halves and back halves teeter independently like two people pretending to be one horse. While the idea of tens of thousands of minks flopping through a pasture is quite amusing, the minks’ liberation likely came at a price: Farm-raised minks aren’t really...

    Palestinian terrorists have changed the conditions for maintaining the status quo by bringing their slaughter into the immediate vicinity of the Temple Mount holy site Last Friday, three Arabs killed two Israeli police officers who were guarding an entrance to Jerusalem’s holy compound, known to Jews as the Temple Mount and to Muslims as the Noble Sanctuary. The police officers were shot with arms that had evidently been smuggled into the compound and stashed there. This latest attack was another in an unending series of terrorist murders of Israelis, but this time the attack took place at Old Jerusalem’s sacred...

    CNN’s Jake Tapper calls out Linda Sarsour on her “ugly sentiments” and support for cop killers. Still reeling from a series of embarrassing disclosures and meltdowns that have blackened her image, Linda Sarsour, the self-promoting anti-Semitic provocateur has found herself once again embroiled in controversy. Sarsour, who has proven to be adept and promoting herself on social media, bit off  more than she could chew when she provoked the ire of CNN’s Jake Tapper.  Sarsour had expressed support for Assata Shakur, a fugitive cop killer who murdered a New Jersey state trooper in 1973. Shakur was convicted of first degree...

    The Iraqi government said it will be investigating a video apparently showing Iraqi troops throwing captured ISIS fighters off a high ledge and killing them, just days after Iraq’s prime minister, Haider al-Abadi, declared victory over ISIS in the city of Mosul. The unverified video shows men in uniform throwing a man off a ledge and then shooting him. According to the BBC, the Iraqi government said that if the video is authentic, those responsible will be brought to justice. “In the final weeks of the battle for west Mosul, the pervasive attitude that I have observed among armed forces...

    I first noticed something unusual about Islam during the 1980s when I was doing research for my book, Ethics in Context. I devoted one section of the book to the “Golden Rule.” The Golden Rule, in its negative or positive formulations, is incorporated not only in Christianity (Matt. 7:12), where Jesus declares it is a summary of “the law and the prophets,” but also in other major religions. For example, in Judaism, “What is hateful to you, do not do to your neighbor”; in Hinduism, “Let no man do to another that which would be repugnant to himself”’; in...

    HONOLULU -- A former bunk mate of a U.S. soldier accused of pledging loyalty to the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS) group says they debated conspiracy theories. Dustin Lyles says Army Sgt. 1st Class Ikaika Kang believed the moon landing was faked, questioned the assassination of President John F. Kennedy and thought the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks were an inside job coordinated by the U.S. government. Kang was arrested Saturday and appeared in federal court in Honolulu Thursday for a detention hearing. At the hearing, the Department of Justice introduced a photo of Kang kissing an ISIS flag....

    Canadians across the country have been reaching into their wallets to donate money to the family of an American soldier whom Omar Khadr is accused of killing in Afghanistan 15 years ago. The online fundraising effort – part political protest, part generosity – comes amid a furor over the $10.5 million sources said the federal government paid Khadr for breaching his rights while he was an American prisoner at Guantanamo Bay.

    The Latest on a judge’s decision on President Donald Trump’s travel ban (all times local): 3:50 p.m. The Trump administration is asking the Supreme Court for greater freedom in limiting visitors to the United States from six mostly Muslim countries and refugees from around the world. The Justice Department filed an emergency appeal with the high court late Friday that seeks to undo a Hawaii judge’s ruling from a day earlier. That ruling diluted President Donald Trump’s restrictions on refugees and visitors from Iran, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, Syria and Yemen.

    JERUSALEM -- Three Palestinian assailants opened fire on Israeli police from inside a major Jerusalem holy site Friday, killing two officers before being shot dead, police said. The rare attack from within the contested shrine, revered by both Muslims and Jews, raised new concerns about an escalation of violence. The sacred compound sits at the fault line of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, and has triggered major confrontations in the past.....

    How Qatar carefully nurtured al-Nusra to sow mayhem A video showing Al-Jazeera anchor Ahmad Mansour interviewing the leader of the al-Nusra Front in Syria or Jabhat al-Nusra, Abu Muhammad al-Julani, has reappeared on social media platforms. While Mansour drew attention to the fact that there is no difference between the Muslim Brotherhood and al-Qaeda, the most interesting part remains the target of the dialogue itself. The goal of Al Jazeera anchor was to whitewash Al Nusra Front and present it as a militant party with an honorable cause. The interview brings to the forefront the issue of Qatar’s relationship with...
