  • Video: Carly Fiorina on how she would fight ISIS

    Hotair ^ | 05/28/2015 | Jazz Shaw
    As the various candidates made the media rounds this week, there was one interview which jumped out at me. It was Carly Fiorina sitting down with Andrea Mitchell on MSNBC and taking one of the tougher questions facing every White House aspirant… if elected, what do you plan to do about ISIS? The answers we frequently get are disappointing at best – if there’s an answer given at all – but this time the reporter almost seemed shocked to have somebody lay out numerous elements of a plan in plain, clear language.Before we get to the specifics, check out...

    Via the Blaze, the key bit starts at 3:50. This is transparently false, of course, but it’s telling that he’d reach for this analogy for the cartoons instead of another obvious example of blasphemy like “Piss Christ.” The word “nigger” became taboo because Americans became more conscious of the injustices of racism. It’s been expunged from polite society due to a cultural consensus that blacks were treated shamefully and that equality requires eschewing words that had been used as tools of intimidation. The power dynamics behind the Mohammed cartoons are the opposite of that. The fear isn’t so much...

    Frances Martel27 May 201545 The increasingly difficult-to-ignore presence of anti-Semitic attitudes in Turkey is forcing Sephardic Jews, whose ancestors were welcomed in the Ottoman Empire after being expelled from their homes due to the Inquisition, to consider returning to Spain and rebuilding their lives there, now that the nations legislature is poised to grant them passports. The New York Times reports that Spains Sephardic Ancestry Bill, which is expected to pass this month and would grant dual Spanish citizenship to the Jewish descendants of those expelled from the nation in 1492, is posing an increasingly tempting option to Jews in...

    Barak: Israel should seriously consider unilateral disengagement from Palestinians Former prime minister Ehud Barak said Thursday that Israel should consider unilateral moves to disengage from the Palestinians in the event that efforts to relaunch negotiations with PA President Mahmoud Abbas should fail. Speaking in an interview with Army Radio on the occasion of the 15th anniversary of Israel's withdrawal from Lebanon in 2000, Barak said that such an effort to speak with Abbas must be made.

The Quran says: So have you considered al-Lat and al-Uzza? And Manat, the third, the other one? Is the male for you and for Him the female? That, then, is an unjust division. (53:19-22) This passage is ridiculing the idea that these three goddesses are the daughters of Allah, for that would mean that the deity only had daughters while human being have sons, who were assumed to...

    The arrest of two southern California men last week who were planning to travel to Syria to join the Islamic State brings the number of U.S.-based individuals involved in international terror-related cases this year to 40. (UPDATE: with the arrest of Houston-area Asher Abid Khan late Monday for supporting ISIS, the tally is now 41.)This number highlights the metastasizing Islamic terror threat in the American homeland. At the current pace, by the end of June halfway through 2015 the number of cases will exceed the number from the past two years combined (48). <-- PJM_300_by_250_middle --> The Islamic...

    Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu warned on Thursday that acceding to the Palestinian demand to suspend Israel from FIFA threatened to unravel the international soccer organization. In an interview with reporters in Tel Aviv, Netanyahu commented on Fridays upcoming vote to oust Israel at the FIFA congress in Zurich, calling it a blatant intrusion of politics into the field of sports. According to Netanyahu, who is also an avid soccer fan, sport has become an arena of goodwill and cooperation between peoples, and because of that an attempt to attack Israel in FIFA will cause FIFA to collapse.

The Palestine Football Association called for this measure because Israel prevents our national team from participating in normal training, travel and competition.

The Palestine national team has belonged to FIFA since 1998, but we do not trust the current president, Sepp Blatter, to represent our interests. Past assurances to act have not been...

    Robert S. Wistrich, who died suddenly last week, was considered the foremost scholar of anti-Semitism, which he called “the longest hatred,” one that appears to be metastasizing in the current era. Writing about Nazi anti-Semitism ruffles no feathers within academia and other elite circles. Mr. Wistrich, however, had been warning that “anti-Semitism has undergone a process of growing ‘Islamicization,’ linked to the terrorist holy war against Jews and other non-Muslims with its truly lethal consequences.” This “new” anti-Semitism,” he added, targetsIsrael, the only state with a Jewish majority: “the collective Jew.” “New” is a relative term: It was 40 years...

The issue remains so sensitive that the emails recently released by the State Department redacted a key line on the matter. But the unredacted version of the same email, released to the congressional Benghazi Select Committee and first posted by The New York Times last Thursday, showed...

    Ever since ISIS began its bloody rampage across the Middle East, many of us have been suspicious of their origins. The West seemed perfectly willing to support the rebellion against Russian backed Assad, but as soon as those supposedly moderate rebels formed ISIS, they turned against them (according to the media at least). But according to a recently declassified document, the US government knew more than they were letting on (gasp) in regards to the formation of ISIS. The seven page document, which was dated August 12th 2012, was attained by Judicial Watch through a federal lawsuit. It reveals that...

Fiorina said, I come from a world where titles are just titles, and talk is just talk. Its only in politics where titles and words mean a lot. In the rest of the world, its actually about what have you done, actions speak louder than words. People want to know are your words and your actions consistent and are they consistent over time. And so,...

    Rand Paul says the Islamic State exists and increased in strength because of the hawkish wing of the Republican Party that provided weapons to the region indiscriminately. The Kentucky senator and Republican presidential candidate blasted members of his own party like South Carolina Sen. Lindsey Graham for arguing that the terrorist group exists because of people like him. I would say its exactly the opposite. ISIS exists and grew stronger because of the hawks in our party who gave arms indiscriminately, and most of those arms were snatched up by ISIS. These hawks also wanted to bomb Assad, which would...

    Everyone says President Obama is a feckless commander, weak in statecraft, especially compared to the great leaders of the Western world, such as Reagan and Churchill. I believe this does Obama a great injustice. It's so easy to react the way a great leader would. Sure, Obama could have left a small contingent of American troops in Iraq, preserved America's victory, and prevented the entire region from collapsing into chaos and terror. He could have refrained from issuing empty "red line" threats to Syria. He could call ISIS "Islamic." But anybody could do that -- even ISIS calls itself "Islamic."...
  • ISIS Claims to Be 'Infinitely' Closer to Buying Nukes From Pakistan and Smuggling It Into the US

    The Islamic State terrorist organization proclaims it's now "infinitely" closer to buying a nuclear weapon and sneaking it inside the United States than it has ever been, a "far-fetched" claim that's designed only to spark fear of deadly chaos on American soil. In the latest issue of ISIS' monthly English propaganda magazine, Dabiq, an article believed to have been written by captured British photojournalist John Cantlie states that it would be much easier than people realize for ISIS to acquire nuclear weapons and smuggle it through South and Central Americas and up to the southern border. The article, which is...

    American Thinker ^ | 05/27/2015 | Peter Nichols
    The foreign policy position of several Republican candidates took a dramatic turn after Jeb Bush, by common perception, bungled a question on the Iraq War.  Knowing what he knows now (i.e., that there were no weapons of mass destruction in Iraq) would Governor Bush have launched an invasion in 2003?  Bush answered in the affirmative, thereafter discovering that he had misunderstood the question and needed to amend his response.  Immediately after, such other candidates as Marco Rubio and Ted Cruz deemed it prudent to say no – knowing what they also know now, they would not have attacked Iraq...

    Thanks to Obama ISIS Islamists now control half of Syria and one-third of Iraq. ISIS Terrorists now control territory larger than the land mass of Great Britain. How pathetic is this? The Obama White House once again tried to blame George W. Bush for the creation of ISIS an Islamist group that was formed when US troops left Iraq in 2011. Transcript via The White House Dossier from a press conference last week: Q Jeb Bush said yesterday that ISIS didnt exist when my brother was President. He has a point, doesnt he? MR.

    More than 10 years after France passed its first anti-veil law restricting young girls from wearing veils in public schools, the head coverings of observant Muslim women, from colorful silk scarves to black chadors, have become one of the most potent flash points in the nations tense relations with its vibrant and growing Muslim population. Mainstream politicians continue to push for new measures to deny veiled women access to jobs, educational institutions and community life. They often say they are doing so for the benefit of public order or in the name of lacit, the French term for the separation...

    Marquette University is the latest institution of higher learning attempting to distance itself from a self-inflicted scandal. The Catholic campuss Gender and Sexuality Resource Center (GSRC) decided to erect a mural honoring one if its apparent heroes: convicted cop killer, escaped convict and wanted terrorist Assata Shakur. Shakur, aka Joanne Chesimard, was a member of the former Black Panther Party (BPP) and Black Liberation Army (BLA) and was convicted of the execution-style killing of New Jersey State trooper Werner Foerster in 1973. In 1979 she escaped from prison and lived as a fugitive before fleeing to Cuba in 1984. In...

    A United States Marine was convicted at a court-martial for refusing to remove a Bible verse on her computer a verse of Scripture the military determined could easily be seen as contrary to good order and discipline. The plight of Lance Corporal Monifa Sterling seems unbelievable a member of the Armed Forces criminally prosecuted for displaying a slightly altered passage of Scripture from the Old Testament: No weapon formed against me shall prosper. Sterling, who represented herself at trial, was convicted February 1, 2014 in a court-martial at Camp Lejune, North Carolina after she refused to obey orders...

    RUSH: Let's go to Hillary and Libya. Now, we all know about Mrs. Clinton's e-mail snafus and we all know about her problems, and we all know about Hillary's genuine general incompetence as secretary of state and the fact she didn't achieve much and the fact that all the relevant e-mails have supposedly been deleted and are gone is evidence of this, we think. Okay, so how do we nevertheless tie Mrs. Clinton to the boondoggle that's Libya? Benghazi's in Libya, for those of you in Rio Linda. And that's a boondoggle. It was a disaster. Four Americans dead.

    Now that Congress has passed the faux Iran accountability bill (Corker-Cardin), Obama has leverage to continue appeasing Iran at breakneck speed.  He is taking full advantage of his newfound legitimacy under the guise of securing congressional input.  Previously chronicled at Conservative Review, this administration has taken absurd and dangerous acts over the past two years in order to align with Iran.  Earlier this year, Director of National Intelligence, James Clapper, omitted any mention of Iran and Hezbollah in the annual assessment of terror threats.   Now, the administration is refusing to publish the annual report of Iran’s record on human rights.   The...
