    WASHINGTON — The Biden administration is stepping up efforts to combat domestic extremism, increasing funding to prevent attacks, weighing strategies historically used against foreign terrorist groups and more openly warning the public about the threat.

  • Evangelical Christians are not a radicalized threat: Evangelicals have been a positive force throughout American history, and will continue to be so for the years to come

    Since the January 6 riot, increasingly strident voices from the political left have stigmatized Evangelicals as a threat to America. A recent article published in Foreign Affairs by Drs. Muhammed Fraser-Rahim and Melissa Graves, is yet the latest of these rising anti-Evangelical denunciations. This article was written by two tenured professors at my Alma Mater, The Citadel, and from the Department of Intelligence and Security Studies. As the conclusions are completely at odds with the cited evidence, this article demands response and refutation. The title provides insight into the bias involved: “The US Needs Deradicalization – for Christian Extremists”, and...

    A slide used in a Department of Defense (DOD) training manual identifies Catholics and evangelical Christians as “religious extremists,” along with members of the Ku Klux Klan, al Qaeda and Hamas, according to a Marine Corps officer. “First Liberty also obtained a screenshot of an unclassified slide from a U.S. Army training manual. The slide is entitled ‘Religious Extremism’ and it purports to identify religious extremists,” Michael Berry told the House Armed Services Committee during a hearing Wednesday entitled “Extremism in the Military.” Berry is General Counsel to the First Liberty Institute (FLI), a Plano, Texas-based public interest law firm...
  • White riot: The threat from domestic violent extremism

    As the political extremes have taken center stage in American life, domestic violent extremism has become the greatest threat to national security. But what do you do when the enemy is part of America? And when does political extremism cross the line into domestic terrorism? "There is a fine line there," said Michael Paul, Special Agent in Charge of the Minneapolis FBI. "But it is a very hard line for us, in that we don’t police thought, we don’t police ideology." Paul came to the Minneapolis FBI in September with a long resume in fighting domestic terrorism and counterintelligence. He...

    Former U.S. Navy Lieutenant Commander Steven Rogers said on Thursday that an order by Secretary of Defense Lloyd Austin for the military to stand down to address “extremism” is unprecedented, unnecessary, and a dangerous road that leads to “communist China.” “This to me, dangerous, it looks like a political litmus test, and it’s a road that you would only find in communist China or in the former Soviet Union,” former Lieutenant Commander Rogers told NTD. Austin ordered a DOD-wide stand down to address extremism in the ranks on Wednesday. Rogers said that the United States military has been a role...

Right-wing organizations and personalities, including VDARE, the Daily Stormer and Nick Fuentes, received significant donations that researchers believe were meant to bolster their far-right causes./// ...Dozens of people who participated in the insurrection last week were on a terrorist watch list.

    Amid the unedifying and sometimes indecipherable US presidential debate this week, one comment rang clear: President Trump’s chilling prediction that the election, already under way, “is not going to end well”. The remark was not a bolt from the blue. Last month, the president refused to commit to a peaceful transition of power should he lose. He has declined to state that he will accept the results. In doing so, Mr Trump has thrust to the centre of US politics a question which has been gnawing at Democrats for some time: what if he loses and refuses to leave? In...

    When Proud Boys chairman Enrique Tarrio woke up Wednesday, four news vans were parked in front of his home. The chairman of the far-right fraternity with a violent reputation was sleepy but not surprised; his phone had been ringing nonstop since President Trump told his members to “stand back and stand by” during the first presidential debate the night before. Trump’s words were a galvanizing moment for the far right and specifically for the Proud Boys, a male-only group with a reputation for bashing leftist protesters during street brawls. The sitting Republican president had given an organization that had operated...

    An Air Force sergeant linked to an anti-government movement was charged with murder and attempted murder on Tuesday in the shooting death of a federal security officer outside a courthouse in Oakland, Calif., last month. The sergeant had expressed his allegiance to the so-called boogaloo movement by writing with his own blood on the hood of a white Toyota Camry and had used the recent protests against racial injustice as a cover to attack law enforcement, according to the F.B.I. Staff Sgt. Steven Carrillo, 32, is accused of firing an assault rifle from the open back door of a moving...

    Hindu extremists brutally attacked a group of about 70 Christians, including children, as they traveled home from a national congress focused on praying for peace in India amid escalating persecution. According to Christian Solidarity Worldwide, three men on motorcycles attacked Christians traveling home from the Third National Congress of the Synod of Pentecostal Churches in Coimbatore, Tamil Nadu, on Feb 5. The men verbally threatened the passengers before smashing the windshields of the vehicles, causing injury to the driver and passengers, which included women, children and the elderly. Pastor Paul Raj, one of the passengers, immediately called the police, who...

    This movie is just raw evil from its foundation. It is about a female assassin traveling back in time to kill people whose ideology allegedly causes a civil war in the future in order to avert the conflict and wipe out it having every historically occurred. The primary thing wrong with the entire plot is that it is an action against supposed White Nationalist Extremism and gives such a group enough power to even start such a conflict (not true). The distortion of facts about people who are trying to restore the United States to its former glory is obvious...

    Earlier this week, news broke of an investigation into wealthy families (including actresses Lori Laughlin and Felicity Huffman) bribing test administrators and college athletics coaches to grant admission to their underqualified children; Stanfurd, UC L.A., and USC were among the schools involved. The media circus has now roped in UC Berkeley. Initially, the story was just that David Sidoo (“a Canadian businessman, philanthropist, and former professional football player”) had paid $200,000 for someone to impersonate his two sons during the SATs, with his younger son ultimately ending up at Cal. At this point, there was no reason to hold Cal...

    As Democrats in states like New York, Maryland, and Virginia enact or push for expanding abortion rights nearly to the point of infanticide, American attitudes toward the procedure are shifting dramatically, according to a new survey. After blue state Democrats proposed or passed bills allowing a woman to have an abortion late in the third term this year, “a dramatic shift” has occurred in Americans’ attitudes toward abortion policy, said Barbara Carvalho, director of the latest Marist poll that was commissioned by the Knights of Columbus, a Catholic group. The survey found that Americans are just as likely to identify...

    An online “racial justice” organization called Color of Change has launched a new campaign inspired by U.S. Rep. Maxine Waters’ (D-Calif.) with the slogan: “Civility won’t save us.” The organization is peddling limited-edition “Be Like Maxine” tote bags, along with the message that Americans should adopt the divisive congresswoman’s “fighting spirit.” On Friday’s radio show, Glenn beck made it clear he doesn’t think what our our country needs is a bigger dose of incivility — Maxine Waters approved or not. After pitching a tote-ad parody, Glenn added, “Black Lives Matter co-founder Alicia Garza says, ‘Civility won’t save us because this...
  • Germany: Left-wing violence and extremism on the rise

    German security officials say left-wing extremists have become more willing to use violence over the past five years. Figures released by the domestic intelligence agency BfV on Wednesday show the number of left-wing extremists whom authorities consider potentially violent rose 27 percent from 7,100 to about 9,000 between 2012 and 2017. The number of violent crimes committed by left-wing extremists rose 88 percent during that period, to 1,648 from 876.
