My latest in PJ Media: The establishment media agrees that Biden’s handlers’ freeing of Taliban jihadi Abdul Latif Nasser from Guantanamo, where he had been held for nineteen years, was the first step toward taking care of more unfinished business from the Obama administration and finally closing the notorious prison camp. But is that really the […]

In the aftermath of the bombing of the Associated Press offices in Gaza, which also housed Hamas, there were two possibilities regarding AP. One was that they really didn’t know Hamas was in the building, in which case they were the worst reporters on the planet. Or else AP knew Hamas was there, and was fine […]
“The Catholic Church is in crisis,” writes Crisis Magazine Editor-in-Chief Eric Sammons in his highly informative new book, Deadly Indifference: How the Church Lost Her Mission and How We Can Reclaim It. Since the Catholic Church’s 1962-1965 Second Vatican Council (Vatican II), a spirit of relativism has undermined the Catholic Church’s commitment to divine truth, with particularly negative effects upon the relationship of […]
Abdul Latif Nasser spent nineteen years in the Guantanamo prison camp without charge. This was a tremendous injustice, and was born of the confusion about what exactly we were facing after 9/11 in the first place. Bush called it a “war on terror,” and so we put enemy combatants in a prison camp. In past […]
People who disagree with the historical investigations discussed in Did Muhammad Exist? have not infrequently sent me this 2008 article by Patricia Crone (who died in 2015), who was one of the pioneering scholars of historical revisionism regarding the standard account of Muhammad’s life, and yet in this article seems to retreat from her previous views and […]
This won’t happen in the U.S., as long as Biden’s handlers are in power. They’re actively collaborating with Brotherhood entities in the U.S. Austria Bans Muslim Brotherhood and Sets New Standard In the Fight Against Islamist Extremism EU-Policies, July 13, 2021: Last week, the Austrian National Assembly passed an act targeting the activities of ISIS […]

Versailles man charged with Making a Terroristic Threat by Dan Claxton, KRCG, July 12, 2021: NEW BLOOMFIELD — A Versailles man is in custody in the Morgan County jail charged with Making a Terroristic Threat by allegedly telling two co-workers […]
Meanwhile, they were sitting down with Biden’s handlers to demand the end of sanctions. The mullahs know that there is nothing they can do that will make Biden’s handlers not want to give them everything they want.

My latest in PJ Media: The destruction of the United States is all a nefarious plot to aid Israel, you see. On July 3, Omar Baloch, whose YouTube channel describes him as “the Scholar in Residence for Al Furqaan Foundation,” a Chicago-based organization dedicated to spreading Islam in the United States, published a video entitled “San Francisco Goes into Chaos, […]
My latest in PJ Media: The noble and patriotic Rep. Rashida Tlaib (D-Gaza) has a big new idea: defund not only the police, but Customs and Border Protection (CBP), Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE), and the Department of Homeland Security (DHS). Why? Because they engage in terrorism, of course. The Democrat effort to scapegoat and criminalize […]
Not prioritized: getting the “Palestinians” to stop paying jihad terrorists and their families. Not prioritized: getting the “Palestinians” to stop shooting rockets at Israeli civilians. Not prioritized: getting the “Palestinians” to end their genocidal jihad rhetoric. Not prioritized: getting the “Palestinians” to stop training their children to hate and murder Israelis. US now to ‘prioritize’ […]
One might almost get the impression that she wants America defenseless before its enemies, if it weren’t for the establishment media and the political elites reassuring us of how patriotic she is. Rashida Tlaib calls to defund immigration agencies amid border crisis by Mark Moore, New York Post, July 8, 2021: Rep. Rashida Tlaib, original […]
She signed a prenuptial agreement agreeing to abide by Sharia, but says she was tricked into doing so. This ought to have been taken into account. Non-Muslims in several states a few years ago tried to outlaw the elements of Sharia that interfere with Constitutionally protected freedoms, not Islam as an individual religious practice. These […]
My latest in PJ Media: We know that eleven people were arrested in Massachusetts after an armed standoff with police, but the establishment media has been unsure of exactly who they are. They’re clearly not the media’s preferred bogeymen, “white supremacists,” as they’re black Americans, but they claim to be Moroccans, even unfurling the Moroccan flag on I-95 […]
