    President Barack Arrogant McStompyfoot held his ground the other day, proclaiming that the US was going to continue importing Syrian refugees, despite the fact that they cannot be properly screened. Deputy National Security Director Ben Rhodes was the guy who made sure the video was the focus in the aftermath of the Benghazi attacks as opposed to policy failure. He now assures us that the refugees will be thoroughly screened. He's not worried.Todd asked, "Does the president now have any more pause about bringing Syrian refugees into the United States?" Rhodes said, "No, Chuck. We have very extensive screening procedures...
  • Obama describes Boston Marathon bombings as ‘two brothers and a crock pot’

    Obama characterized the 2013 Boston Marathon bombing attacks as “two brothers and a crock pot” on Monday in an attempt to explain the power of individual terrorist threats. Speaking after a meeting with the G20 in Turkey, Obama referenced the Tsarnaev brothers in talking about the Paris terrorist attacks that killed 129 people and injured more than 350 on Friday. He said the marathon bombings show the devastation that can be caused by a small group of dedicated people. “That was a serious attempt at killing a lot of people by two brothers and a crock pot,” he said. “It...

    Here are three among a seemingly infinite number of examples of taqiyya in action. The first example is of taqiyya played out at the highest levels of politics and world affairs, as Raymond Ibrahim recalled an anecdote brought to his attention by Daniel Pipes. Back in the 1980s, Muhammad Zia-ul-Haq, the president of Pakistan, explained to Ronald Reagan how it was no problem for the Pakistanis to sign the Geneva agreements and yet continue supplying weapons to the Afghan jihadis (“freedom fighters”) combating the Soviet Union. Why wasn’t it a problem? According to Zia, “We’ll just lie about it. That’s what...

    Barack Obama, in his constant effort to bring about more danger to the Americans he charged to help protect, has announced he will accept at least 10,000 new refugees beginning next month. If Europe provides a good example of what we can expect, these refugees will primarily be Muslim men. This on the same day the Homeland Security Chair says we have no possible way to vet those coming from Syria. NYT has more. President Obama, under increasing pressure to demonstrate that the United States is joining European nations in the effort to resettle Syrian refugees, has told his administration...

    Before and after 9/11, the FBI took a hard look at Youssef Abdulazeez because he had apparently donated money to Hamas through a front group. He went on a watch list. He went off the watch list. The FBI forgot about him until his son, Mohammod Youssef Abdulazeez, went on a Jihadist killing spree in Chattanooga. Just like the Tsarnaev terrorists, the media is digging into the background of this dysfunctional Muslim family. We have learned that Youssef Abdulazeez liked to beat and rape his wife. He even wanted to get a second wife to rape and beat, as permitted...

    A choked-up Dzhokhar Tsarnaev apologized in court Wednesday to the victims of the Boston Marathon bombings, then was formally sentenced to die for the attack. "You told us just how unbearable it was, this thing I put you through," Tsarnaev said at a hearing in Boston. "Now, I am sorry for the lives that I have taken." "I ask Allah for his mercy for me and my brother and my family," he said. Tsarnaev stood as he spoke, and the courtroom was extraordinarily quiet. He paused at each sentence and appeared to tremble. Some victims had gathered in court to...

A sense of sorrow lingers in the air. Sightseers who come to snap a photo feel a little self-conscious. Residents train their gaze on the line, and the conversations turn to death and disappointment.

    Head-in-the-sand approach to Islamic terror There are several laws such as Godwins Law. Godwins Law is named after American lawyer and author, Mike Godwin, and postulates the longer a discussion on the Internet goes, the chance that one of the participants will compare someone or something to Hitler or the Nazis increases. A new and similar law is needed; perhaps it could be called Ortiz Law. Ortiz Law would hypothesize that the longer a person discusses Islamic terrorism, the more certain it will be that that person will say the act or acts in question have absolutely nothing to do...

    The vast majority of those cases took place at the state level. Federal prisoners like Tsarnaev are even less likely to be executed. Between 1988, when Congress reinstated the death penalty for federal cases, and 2013, 71 federal defendants were sentenced to death; only three were executed, compared with 10 who had their sentences or convictions overturned on appeal. (One inmate died on death row, and another had his sentence commuted to life by President Bill Clinton in 2001.) No federal execution has taken place since 2003. Of those still awaiting execution, the typical inmate has already spent a decade...

    According to a new poll, most Boston and Massachusetts residents oppose the death penalty for Dzhokhar Tsarnaev. The Boston Globe poll found that fewer than 20 percent of Massachusetts residents supported the death penalty for the Boston Marathon bomber. Only 15 percent of Boston residents believe he should be executed. One-third of Massachusetts residents and one-quarter of Boston residents believe execution is typically appropriate for egregious crimes. "It seems that voters have concluded that Tsarnaev does not deserve a quick death, but rather should spend the remainder of his days in a windowless cell contemplating the heinous acts that put...

"What a parent can feel at such moment? It is hard," Dzhokhar's father, Anzor Tsarnaev, said from Dagestan, Russia. "Hope exists always. We had hope and still do." Anzor Tsarnaev's brother, Saeed Tsarnaev, said they will appeal. Saeed Tsarnaev blamed the lawyers for giving the family hope and said they are all "very worried" about Dzhokhar. He called the decision a "big tragedy" for the family and "insulting to our name." Anzor Tsarnaev's sister,...

"This is nothing to celebrate. This is justice," said survivor Michael Ward. "He wanted to go to hell and he's going to get there early." The verdict against Tsarnaev, who'll turn 22 in July, was announced by U.S. District Court Judge George A. O'Toole Jr.'s courtroom clerk Paul Lyness.

    The trial of Dzhokar Tsarnaev has gripped America, but in Russia the Boston bombers trial has received little media coverage, with even the arrival of five Tsarnaev family members from Russia to testify receiving no attention. The relatives are staying in Massachusetts over the weekend, after a sick juror meant their testimony for the defence could not be heard on Thursday. But Russian state-controlled media has shown little interest in their trip to the US, and a decision appears to have been taken that the Tsarnaevs links to Russia should be played down. On 8 April, the jury convicted Tsarnaev...

Tsarnaev, 21, wiped tears from his eyes quickly and fidgeted in his chair as his mother's sister sobbed uncontrollably. He had maintained a disinterested expression since his trial began in January. The aunt, Patimat Suleimanova, cried as she sat down about 10 feet from Tsarnaev. The tears began falling before she began to testify, and she was only able to answer questions about her...

We don't know what this life is going to lead to." Anything's possible, but surely Tsarnaev's sentence should not be based on this sort of idle speculation. What made Raushenbush's argument particularly galling was his statement that "the idea of ending any life for any reason is for...

None of those arguments apply to Dzhokhar Tsarnaev. He admitted, through his lawyers, that he and his brother murdered three people and maimed 260 others at the Boston Marathon.
