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

    07/30/2017 8:19:22 AM PDT · by Hojczyk · 5 replies
    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...

    President Trump’s speech in Warsaw cast the fight against terrorism as a clash of civilizations, adopting a framework that his two predecessors had determinedly avoided and linking it to his controversial policies on immigration.

    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...

  • Islamic State Starts 2017 with Video of Toddler Executing Prisoner on Playground

    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. Hitting, confronting and striking until it falls back behind the seas. None is upon us except by the will of Allah,” Ibrahim Al Qosi, a convicted Al Qaeda paymaster said in a speech entitled "15 years since the takeoff of the modern crusade." The Foreign Desk has obtained a transcript of Al Qosi's speech. Al Qosi advises followers to “concentrate your military...

CNN and other networks will broadcast it live at 8 p.m. ET. The White House says the president will provide an update on the investigation. Federal authorities have said the attacks are being investigated as an act of terrorism. "The President will also discuss the broader threat of terrorism, including the nature of the threat, how it has evolved, and how we will defeat it," White House Press Secretary Josh Earnest...

    Crisis Magazine ^ | 03/19/2011 | Thomas F. Madden
    Many historians had been trying for some time to set the record straight on the Crusades—misconceptions are all too common. For them, current interest is an opportunity to explain the Crusades while people are actually listening. With the possible exception of Umberto Eco, medieval scholars are not used to getting much media attention. We tend to be a quiet lot (except during the annual bacchanalia we call the International Congress on Medieval Studies in Kalamazoo, Michigan, of all places), poring over musty chronicles and writing dull yet meticulous studies that few will read. Imagine, then, my surprise when within days...

    Citizens of Belgium's capital Brussels haven been told to avoid crowded places like cafés, restaurants and theaters because of "precise information" about a planned terrorist attack. The city's metro has been shut down for the day. The steps were taken immediately after the Belgian government raised its terror alert to the highest possible level, implying that a terror attack is "imminent." The Belgian prime minister explained that the alert is a result of "quite precise information about the risk of an attack like the one that happened in Paris." A few days ago, the country raised its threat level to...

    The killer of four U.S. Marines in Chattanooga maintained a short-lived blog that hinted at his religious inner life. Mohammad Youssef Abdulazeez's blog had only two posts, both published July 13 and written in a popular style of Islamic religious reasoning. The first post was entitled "A Prison Called Dunya," referring to the temporal world. In it, Abdulazeez uses the hypothetical example of a prisoner who is told he would be given a test that would either take him out of his earthly prison—or send him into a more restrictive environment. "I would imagine that any sane person would devote...
