    There seems to be confusion amongst some Republicans about how critical this moment is to the future of the Republican Party in terms of what we believe. The Left is trying to destroy a wonderful man by throwing the proverbial kitchen sink at him at the end of the process with their no-holds-barred attitude of win at any cost. If Kavanaugh does not win the vote, then just who can be nominated? The Democrats will have successfully taken over control of the Supreme Court. First, if you think the Republicans have a chance to win in the upcoming election if...

    The youngest woman convicted of plotting a terror attack on British soil has been jailed for life with a minimum of 13 years. Safaa Boular, 18, became the final member of Britain’s first all-woman terror cell to be imprisoned when Judge Mark Dennis QC sentenced her at the Old Bailey on Friday. She hid her Islamic State-inspired plans in coded conversations about preparations for an innocent Mad Hatter’s tea party after being seduced online by a jihadi fighter while sitting her GCSEs. Sorry, this content isn't available on your device. It appeared she knew what she was doing and acted...

    Four years ago, 32-year-old Sam Sally left her hometown in Indiana for a vacation in Turkey. The family went from a mundane life of sports cars and a delivery business to joining Islamic State fighters and seeing their son become the face of ISIS propaganda against America. During the trip, Sally claims her husband, Moussa, duped her and her children -- Matthew, 10; Sarah, 5; and her two youngest who were born in the so-called ISIS caliphate -- into joining Islamic State militants in Syria. Sally said, "All I saw was a bunch of drug-using thugs that came from their...
  • Sweden’s violent reality is undoing a peaceful self-image

    Sweden may be known for its popular music, IKEA and a generous welfare state. It is also increasingly associated with a rising number of Islamic State recruits, bombings and hand grenade attacks. In a period of two weeks earlier this year, five explosions took place in the country. It’s not unusual these days — Swedes have grown accustomed to headlines of violent crime, witness intimidation and gangland executions. In a country long renowned for its safety, voters cite “law and order” as the most important issue ahead of the general election in September. The topic of crime is sensitive, however,...

    A skeletal portrait of the Sterling, Va., man federal authorities have accused of obstructing a terrorism investigation began to come into focus on Monday — that of a directionless youth who converted to Islam at the end of high school, married a significantly older Muslim woman, had a child who died as an infant, and became increasingly religious until an arrest Friday that allegedly included him destroying a computer thumb drive that authorities suspect may have contained evidence of terrorism-related activity. In the months before that arrest, court filings allege, Sean Andrew Duncan, 21, who will appear in federal court...

  • Monster swamp vs. swamp monster: A D.C. allegory

    Daily Inter Lake ^ | July 29,2017 | FRANK MIELE
    Politically speaking, I’m caught between a rock and a hard place, or more appropriately between a monster swamp and a swamp monster. The swamp is the bipartisan disaster known more formally as the federal government. The monster is President Donald Trump, whose out-sized self-caricature approach to life makes him more of a tormented DC Comics superhero (or supervillain?) than a D.C. politician. There is no way I am going to support the swamp and its bureaucratic morass, which has a bottomless national debt and the moral code of a toothy gator. But accepting Trump on his own terms means you...

    The final fatality tally for jihadi attacks during the Muslim holy month of Ramadan increased to 1,639, primarily fueled by victims who succumbed to their injuries, reveals an updated Breitbart News count of terror incidents during the period. With a total of 3,343 casualties, including 1,704 injuries, Ramadan 2017 is one of the bloodiest holy months in recent history. The number of deaths this year marked a nearly four-fold increase from the estimated 421 people killed by Islamic extremists last year. There were nearly 160 terror incidents in about 30 predominantly Muslim countries this year, including one jihadi attack in...

    The Islamic State is back with another child-soldier video that is even more depraved than the last “Cubs of the Caliphate” release. This time around, the terror state gives us a small child blowing a chained prisoner’s head off in an abandoned amusement park. The most horrifying sequence in the new video shows a much younger boy — ARA News says he is 4 years old — approaching a prisoner chained to the wall of a dusty old ball pit. The little boy is handed a gun, and he proceeds to pump five rounds into the victim while shrieking, “Allahu...

    German authorities arrest a Syrian man who allegedly asked the ISIS to fund an attack using explosives-packed vehicles. German authorities said Monday that police had arrested a Syrian man who had allegedly asked the Islamic State (ISIS) jihadist group to fund an attack using explosives-packed vehicles, AFP reported. The unemployed 38-year-old with refugee status had urged an ISIS contact via mobile phone message service Telegram to send him 180,000 euros ($188,000), prosecutors said. Police commandos raided the suspect's apartment in Saarbruecken near the French border around 2:00 a.m. (0300 GMT) on Saturday, New Year's Eve. He was detained before being...

    “Our response to this situation matters. If we respond to this situation by casting aspersions on millions of people that adhere to a particular religion or if we increase our suspicion of people who practice a particular religion, we are more likely going to contribute to acts of violence than we are to prevent them.” Of course we should not cast aspersions on people who had nothing to do with this jihad attack. But this kind of talk is used to preclude any examination of the motivating ideology underlying such attacks, and that leaves us more vulnerable to more such...

  • Al Qaeda leader, former Gitmo detainee threatens attack on U.S. cities

    A senior Al Qaeda leader and former Guantanamo detainee in Yemen has called for renewed attacks on the U.S. just days before Americans prepare to vote for a new president. “We pledge and vow to continue fighting America.
