Spurious moral equivalence employed in order to divert attention from the real threat. My latest at The Geller Report: It was reported Friday that “a trio of House Democrats say President Trump is making a mistake pushing for counter-extremism efforts to focus only on radical Islam….Friday’s letter was signed Democratic Reps. Bennie Thompson (Md.), Eliot […]

If you open your window right now, you will be able to hear the New York Times and the Washington Post and CNN and the BBC and all the rest collectively screaming, “Oh yes we do!” But President Trump is correct. He said: “It’s gotten to a point where it’s not even reported, and in […]
Georgetown’s Nathan Lean is a supreme example of how academia has become a radioactive desert of hard-Left indoctrination and opposition to the freedom of speech. He is supposedly an expert on “Islamophobia,” which really means that he is an expert on character assassination of those whom he deems “Islamophobes.” A longtime foe of the freedom […]
Tolliver should have known from the outset that this would happen. It has long been established that in the hierarchy of politically correct causes, Islam trumps homosexuality. When AFDI ran ads highlighting the mistreatment of gays in Islamic law, the San Francisco Board of Supervisors issued a resolution condemning not that mistreatment, but our ads. […]
The showdown over President Trump’s executive order on immigration continues. District Senior Judge James Robart of Seattle has issued “a nationwide restraining order” to block Trump’s order, which restricts immigration from seven Muslim countries – countries selected by the Obama administration — suspends refugee admission for 120 days, and ban Syrian refugees indefinitely. Lee Gelernt, […]
“20 ‘Vetted’ Refugees Who Turned to Terrorism After Being Allowed Into America,” by Chris Menahan, InformationLiberation, January 29, 2017: While the lying media is perpetuating the lie refugees do not pose a terrorist threat, the facts show otherwise. Senator and soon-to-be Attorney General Jeff Sessions compiled this list of refugees-turned-jihadists in 2016 while Obama was […]
President Trump’s executive orders on the Mexican border and the temporary ban on immigration from seven countries that are hotbeds of jihad terror have the Left in an uproar that increases in hysteria by the minute, proving once again that the Left will be satisfied with national suicide and national suicide only – not anything […]
President Trump’s executive orders to build a Mexican border wall and to place a temporary ban on immigration from seven hotbeds of jihad terror have the national and international Left — and its jihadi allies — in an uproar. How dare he move to protect American citizens? French Foreign Minister Jean-Marc Ayrault said, during a […]
In its efforts to block the bill and smear Sen. Ted Cruz (R., Texas), the senator spearheading the designation effort, CAIR recently claimed that the bill “was written by a disgraced former FBI agent who has made a career out of bashing Muslims and Islam. Hamas-linked CAIR is accustomed to lying, smearing, and playing the […]
Oh, this one hurts. I already had my flight booked to Tehran for a three-week vacation. I guess I’ll just have to go to Mogadishu instead. Seriously, while Iran has a great history, as I explain in my book The Complete Infidel’s Guide to Iran, the Islamic Republic of Iran is so repressive and authoritarian, […]
“Islamophobia” is a propaganda term designed to intimidate people into being afraid to resist jihad and Islamic supremacism. But that doesn’t faze today’s enlightened Leftist academics: “On that day, we intend to organize against the proposed expansion of state violence targeting people of color, undocumented people, queer communities, women, Muslims, and many others. On that day, we […]
Ahmad Abou Aklein, a Gaza extremist imam, said the attack that left four Israelis dead and another 17 wounded is allowed under Sharia Islamic law because “it targeted an enemy that occupied Muslim land.” To think that this lie ever came to be believed by any thinking person with a shred of knowledge of history is […]
Ellison has spoken at a convention of the Islamic Society of North America (ISNA). Yet ISNA has actually admitted its ties to Hamas, which styles itself the Palestinian arm of the Muslim Brotherhood. The Justice Department actually classified ISNA among entities “who are and/or were members of the US Muslim Brotherhood.” It gets worse. In […]
The ground we’ve lost during the Obama years — and the dangerous consequences for national security. I’ve posted this video before, but here is a transcript as well. Below are the video and transcript to Robert Spencer’s speech at the David Horowitz Freedom Center’s 2016 Restoration Weekend. The event was held Nov. 10th-13th at the Breakers Resort in Palm […]
“It also has come to light that Kerry held a meeting in December with senior Palestinian diplomat Saeb Erekat. Documents believed to have been leaked by Egypt confirm that Kerry and Erekat discussed forwarding the resolution, a charge that senior White House officials continue to deny.” The Obama administration will leave behind a long, long […]
