Besides removing supposed temptations to idolatry, Islamic supremacists want to ruin the artifacts of non-Muslim civilizations because doing so testifies to the truth of Islam, as the Qur’an suggests that ruins are a sign of Allah’s punishment of those who rejected his truth: Many were the Ways of Life that have passed away before you: […]

This is an oft-debunked claim that nevertheless is frequently repeated, because it fits the establishmet media’s narrative. “MSNBC’s Ruhle Cites Incorrect Terror Statistic [VIDEO],” by Amber Athey, Daily Caller, August 14, 2017: MSNBC’s Stephanie Ruhle incorrectly claimed Monday that right-wing extremists are responsible for “three times more deaths” than Islamic extremists. “Between 2001 and now, we have seen […]
Yesterday I spoke at the Young America’s Foundation High School Conference at the Reagan Ranch Center, about the ongoing efforts to choke off dissent and make the far-Left perspective the only one that is heard. Kudos to YAF for being one organization that is telling young people the truth and energizing them to be active […]
Rep. Keith Ellison (D-MN), the deputy chair of the Democratic National Committee, said unhinged dictator Kim Jong-un, who has nuclear weapons, is more responsible than President Trump. The Muslim Brotherhood-linked Keith Ellison’s irrational comment is waging an aggressive anti-Trump vendetta. Ellison has been notably anti-Trump because of Trump’s temporary travel ban on selected Muslim countries, viewing Trump’s executive order as […]
NSC staffer Rich Higgins wrote the memo below. When he read it, National Security Advisor H. R. McMaster fired him. McMaster should be questioned about this. Did he think he memo was false? Is he part of those trying to subvert Trump’s pro-American agenda? Certainly his many statements denying the Islamic character of Islamic terrorism […]
It’s that easy. And given the sharp increase in the number of Muslims in the U.S. during the Obama administration, it will no doubt continue to be easy, despite the protestations of vigilance from these companies now. “ISIS sent terror money to US operatives through eBay, PayPal: report,” by Joe Tacopino, New York Post, August 10, […]
Polish Foreign Minister Witold Waszczykowski has said his country is welcoming migrants from its poor and conflict-stricken European neighbours, but will resist the European Union’s efforts to impose a compulsory quota of migrants from North Africa and the Middle East. Waszczykowski’s words echo those of the President of the Czech Republic…Miloš Zeman said he had […]
The complaining conservative employee in this story is discussing gender bias, but his points are sound in a larger sense: it is true that Google, like the other Leftist new media giants, is indefatigably opposed to viewpoints that dissent from the hard-Left line. And Google has begun manipulating its search results to conceal criticism of Islam […]
“The company even made a promotional video claiming that the Nazis ‘took the swastika, rotated it 45 degrees, and turned it into a symbol of hatred, fear, war, racism, power.’…On some of the tee shirts sold by KA Designs, the swastika remains turned by 45 degrees, similarly to the Nazis’ use of the symbol.” Get […]
McMaster appears to be doing all he can to make sure that the truth about Islam and jihad is not discussed at the NSC or the White House. He must go. He must go soon. “Censored! McMaster Barred Scholar Ayaan Hirsi Ali from Giving Talk on Radical Islam at NSC,” by Mike Cernovich, Medium, August 4, 2017 […]
We can only hope that with the departure of these failed State Department officials, their failed policies will be swept out along with them. Chief among these is the almost universally held idea that poverty causes terrorism. The United States has wasted uncounted (literally, because a great deal of it was in untraceable bags full […]
University of California’s Hatem Bazian, co-founder of the anti-Israel Students for Justice in Palestine, has been calling for intifada in the United States. It was a matter of time before jihad-minded Muslim leaders in the U.S. started calling for “intifada” (violent uprising) on American soil. It is the result of too much kowtowing by non-Muslim […]
Better yet, how about just disarm the cops who, like Mohamed Noor, are only on the force to demonstrate Minneapolis’ commitment to “diversity,” rather than because they’re competent to be police officers? Even better still, how about hire and fire cops based on merit, rather than for their value as trophy Muslims or Somalis on […]
Five Pakistani-born Muslim Congressional IT aides are now under criminal investigation, and the establishment media is resolutely looking the other way. Questions abound. “Collectively, the Awan group has been paid $4 million since 2009.” That’s a tremendous amount of money for IT work. And what is on these hard drives that led Imran Awan to […]
“Holocaust denial, incitement of hatred, as well as racist and anti-Semitic speech are all illegal under German law.” Holocaust denial is a fairly straightforward concept, as is anti-Semitic speech, but “incitement of hatred” and “racist” speech are much less clearly definable concepts. Who gets to decide what is “incitement of hatred” and “racism”? Why, the […]
