    The United States Military Academy at West Point said Wednesday that an investigation is underway regarding a photograph that shows 16 black cadets in uniform posing with their fists in the air. “We can confirm that the cadets in this photo are members of the U.S. Military Academy’s Class of 2016,” West Point’s director of public affairs, Lt. Col. Christopher Kasker, told Army Times on Wednesday. “Academy officials are conducting an inquiry into the matter.

    In the ongoing struggle between Islam and the West, one important fact is regularly overlooked: one civilization has the will to triumph, but not the way; the other has the way to triumph, but not the will. Some who fear Islam do not seem to understand this. They think that Islam is an irresistible force to be reckoned with; they see Muslim migrants as hordes of violent men invading Europe; they call on Western men to make a stand, resist the onslaught, save their women and children. To be sure, this portrayal is historically valid: for one thousand years, Muslims...

    World leaders gathered on Friday in Washington for the Nuclear Security Summit to discuss the growing threat of nuclear terrorism. Noting the chilling possibility of a nuclear attack, US President Barack Obama remarked that Islamic State terrorists have already made use of weapons of mass destruction in the Middle East, and that there is evidence ISIS has made efforts to acquire nuclear material. "ISIL has already used chemical weapons,” Obama said. “[T]here is no doubt if these madmen ever got their hands on a bomb or nuclear material they would use it to kill as many as possible". "It would...

    There are lots of political machinations going on with the GOP presidential primary. Word is that former Florida Governor and presidential candidate Jeb Bush will be meeting with remaining candidates Ted Cruz, Marco Rubio, and John Kasich. We know Neil Bush is a Cruz campaign finance committeeman. And after what can only be referred to as poor performances this past Tuesday, I surmise there are growing behind-the-scenes calls for Rubio and Kasich to exit. Man, there are probably some serious “Godfather”-type discussions going on. Here’s what’s at risk. If Florida Senator Marco Rubio and Ohio Governor John Kasich remain in...

    "I worry greatly that the rhetoric coming from the Republicans, particularly Donald Trump, is sending a message to Muslims here ... and ... around the world, that there is a 'clash of civilizations.'" So said Hillary Clinton in Saturday night's New Hampshire debate. Yet, that phrase was not popularized by Donald Trump, but by Harvard's famed Samuel Huntington.

It was on that date in 1922 that the seven-century-old Ottoman sultanate was finally abolished by AtatĂĽrk, the leader in the country's war of independence and the founder of the secular Republic of Turkey. This revolutionary act -- along with the abolition of the Islamic Caliphate two years later -- sent shockwaves throughout the entire Islamic world. For the first time in history, sovereignty over a Muslim-majority society had been wrested from the sultan -- who exercised it...

The motive was that the victims “professed the Christian faith while the aggressors were Muslim.” Another report cited a boy seen praying to the Judeo-Christian God. Muslims commanded him to stop, saying “Here, we only pray to Allah.” Eventually the Muslims “went mad,” in the words of a witness, started screaming “Allahu Akbar!” and began hurling Christians into the sea.

One word that has been central to our foreign policy for over a century is “colonialism.” Rather than describing a historical phenomenon––with all the complexity, mixture of good and evil, and conflicting motives found on every page of history––“colonialism” is now an ideological artifact that functions as a crude epithet. As a result, our foreign policy decisions are deformed by self-loathing and guilt eagerly exploited by our adversaries....

But when Americans emerged onto the Great Plains in the second third of the 19th century, they were already the inheritors of two centuries of American Westering. The further West was but the last phase of this experience. Permit me in my two talks to deal mostly with that two century prelude, which is where my knowledge and my bent lie. When settlers...

Differences in fertility rates and the high incidence of conversion make Islam the world’s fastest-growing religion. And, if current rates continue, by 2070 Islam could be the world’s largest. Between now and 2050 the number of Muslims is projected to rise to 2.8 billion, a 35 percent increase. While India will continue to be...

    (Reuters) - Iran's top leader voiced mistrust on Saturday of U.S. efforts to reach a nuclear deal, even as Washington and its allies spoke of real progress and urged Tehran to take "difficult decisions". With just 10 days remaining until an end-of-March deadline for a framework agreement, Iran's Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei denounced U.S. "bullying" in the negotiations and repeated Tehran's denial that it was seeking to develop a nuclear weapon. After week-long talks with Iran in Switzerland, U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry flew to London to confer with his counterparts from Britain, France and Germany on prospects...

    A new state senator for this area was elected Tuesday in a special election that was decided by only 12 percent of the nearly 82,000 registered voters in eight counties. Republican Steve West of Millersburg won six of the eight counties to capture the remaining 20 months of the term. Democrat Kelly Caudill of Maysville won in Rowan and Mason counties but lost by a total of 866 votes in the special election. West will fill the Senate seat vacated by Walter Blevins.

    For over two weeks now politically correct bullies have been making yet another legitimate topic off-limits. Anyone who dares suggest that some Muslim-dominated neighborhoods in Europe are hostile to non-Muslims risks mass mockery. I’m not a Europeanist, a sociologist, a criminologist or an urban anthropologist, but I know an intellectual mugging when I see one: Muslim “no-go zones” are becoming conversational no-go zones. Such thought suppression is all too familiar. In the 1960s, Daniel Patrick Moynihan dared to admit that the black family was in crisis. In the 1980s, Ronald Reagan, Margaret Thatcher and pope John Paul dared to suggest...

    One of the few Republicans who have been willing and unafraid to tell the truth about radical Islam and “cultural jihad” is Louisiana Governor Bobby Jindal. And Jindal is now under attack for telling the truth, that radical Muslims are colonizing the West, and that for all practical purposes there are "Muslim colonization zones" or as he put it, “no go zones” in many European countries, including Great Britain. Fortunately for America, after being viciously attacked for saying there were Muslim “no go zones” in Britain, Jindal didn’t back down – he continued to tell the truth about radical Islam’s...

    Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu on Wednesday met with leaders of the pro-Israel lobbying group AIPAC (American Israel Public Affairs Committee), and spoke about the renewed global awareness of the need to fight Islamist terrorism following last weeks attacks in Paris. "I think the war against terror will not succeed if it’s founded on hypocrisy, and I’ve yet to hear any world leader condemn the comments by (Turkish President Recep Tayyip) Erdogan, not one," said Netanyahu...

    The Moroccan-born mayor of Rotterdam has said Muslim immigrants who do not appreciate the way of life in Western civilisations can 'f*** off'. Ahmed Aboutaleb, who arrived in the Netherlands aged 15, spoke out in the wake of the Charlie Hebdo attack in Paris last week. Appearing on live television just hours after the shootings, Mayor Aboutaleb said Muslims who 'do not like freedom can pack your bags and leave'. 'It is incomprehensible that you can turn against freedom,' Mayor Aboutaleb told Dutch current affairs program Nieuwsuur (Newshour). 'But if you don't like freedom, for heaven's sake pack your bags...

    According to CNN’s reporting, the series of bloody attacks on journalists in police in Paris over the course of this week has “electrified” the global jihadist movement. The suspicion that the two brothers who were responsible for the assault on the offices of Charlie Hebdo also had links to al-Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula is likely to boost recruiting and fundraising efforts for that terrorist group. A resurgent al-Qaeda is already reportedly planning to follow up on the success of the Parisian attacks in the coming days. According to a warning from Britain’s MI5 intelligence service that was made...

    The three Muslim gunmen who killed 12 journalists in Paris targeted not just those people and their satirical magazine Charlie Hebdo, but a core ideal and human right of the West––the right to free speech in the public square defined by tolerance for different opinions. That’s why the killers, after they had called out the names of their individual victims before they shot them, bragged as they made their escape that they had “killed” Charlie Hebdo.
