The Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR) recently held its 25th Annual Gala in Washington, D.C, in which CAIR’s executive director announced a goal of pushing more Islamists into Congress. As the Investigative Project on Terrorism reports, CAIR’s executive director Nihad Awad shares the “formula” he believes will secure Islamists greater political power: “A strong CAIR equals a strong […]
Ahead of the Council of American-Islamic Relations’ 25th Anniversary Gala event last Saturday, the Muslim Brotherhood-linked organization boasted that “120+” members of Congress had sent them letters of support. We never saw those letters, however, thanks to Clarion reader Viola Rose, we were directed to a list of 100 members of Congress who voiced their support of CAIR in 2018. The list was published […]

Specifically, the Mormon faith. An American family living in Mexico was ambushed and massacred by a cartel, with three women and six children murdered. The scene as described by […]
Iran and its terror proxy Hezbollah are financing Mexican drug cartels, smuggling people into America and recruiting them (for pay) as sleeper jihadist cells.

In its effort to be piggyback on the intersectional Leftist crowd, the Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR) espouses a lot of ideas that cater that many American Muslims (especially those who are religiously conservative) do not align with. As counter-terrorism analyst Oz Sultan explains, the American Muslim diaspora comes from 77 diverse Muslim countries. There’s no […]
ISIS’s latest ploy to kill coalition forces at checkpoints in a bra bomb. The brutal terror group is wiring plastic explosives in bras, hoping that troops at checkpoints will only check a woman’s midriff and not further up, reported the Mirror.

But where does that leave counter-extremism? Why is it America’s issue when […]
