Or…? “Mass shooting at music festival on the Las Vegas strip,” by Chris Perez, New York Post, October 2, 2017: A gunman opened fire during a country music festival in Las Vegas on Sunday night — shooting multiple people with a high-powered assault rifle before fleeing the scene, according to reports.

“NBC spoke with two unidentified Taliban commanders, who claimed sources in Afghanistan’s security apparatus tipped them off to Mattis’s visit. Mattis…told reporters that Afghan forces would strongly oppose the action.”…”They will find Afghan security forces against them.” Maybe they will. But will they find Afghan security forces for them? Why not? Afghan forces supposedly on […]
Seems both the prosecution and defense are “Islamophobes.” My latest in PJ Media: The trial of Alton Alexander Nolen — a.k.a. Jah’Keem Yisrael, who beheaded a coworker, Colleen Hufford, and tried to behead another, Traci Johnson, at Vaughan Foods in Moore, Oklahoma in September 2014 — has revealed anew the incoherence and inconsistency of our official […]
This is fine, since there are only two choices: keep out some harmless people or let in some harmful people. Trump is choosing the former, but if he really wants to keep jihadis out, he is going to have to extend the restrictions eventually to Saudi Arabia and Pakistan. “Trump administration announces new travel restrictions,” […]
Canada is now discussing criminal penalties for “Islamophobia.” Facebook’s Vice President went to Pakistan in July to assure the Pakistani government that Facebook would remove content critical of Islam. American columnists seriously call for the denial of free speech rights to those who warn about the jihad threat. That call was directed at me, for the crime of “falsely constructing a […]
Long overdue and much needed. “US weighs dropping Pakistan as an ally,” by Katrina Manson, Financial Times, September 15, 2017: The Trump administration is considering dropping Pakistan as an ally as it examines tough measures to quell more than 20 terrorist groups it says are based in the country. Officials familiar with the Pakistan prong of […]
Muslims somehow became an oppressed group. They joined the glorious coalition of perpetually oppressed “brown people”. Linda Sarsour, who once claimed that without her hijab she would have been just another white girl, reinvented herself as one of the official oppressed people of the donkey party. Now Jihad Watch’s Robert Spencer asks, if Linda Sarsour can […]
A win for common sense and national security. Watch, therefore, for the howls of rage from the Left and hysteria from the establishment media. “Supreme Court: Trump admin can keep travel ban on most refugees,” by Ariane de Vogue, CNN, September 12, 2017: Washington (CNN) The Supreme Court granted Tuesday a Trump administration request to continue […]

Of course Bannon is right. The U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops (USCCB) has a monetary interest in illegal immigration and “refugee” resettlement that goes far beyond all its hypocritical talk about welcoming the newcomer. This corrupt and authoritarian fraternity, which moves ruthlessly to stamp out any dissent from its new dogma that Islam is a […]
Yes, of course, they’re not enraged at jihad terrorism, they’re enraged that the leaflet calls the Taliban dogs. Why? Because Islam hates dogs: “Once Gabriel promised the Prophet (that he would visit him, but Gabriel did not come) and later on he said, ‘We, angels, do not enter a house which contains a picture or […]
Of course. The SPLC and Antifa have the same overall goal: to destroy the freedom of speech and allow only Leftists access to the public square. The SPLC demonizes and tries to destroy dissenters (including foes of jihad terror) by lumping them in with the likes of the Ku Klux Klan and neo-Nazis. Antifa, a genuinely violent […]
On August 29, I spoke at the David Horowitz Freedom Center’s Wednesday Morning Club in Los Angeles on the social media giants’ new practice of shutting down voices that don’t follow the Leftist agenda.

It has just been revealed that Emmanuel Macron, President of France, has in the first three months of his presidency spent more than $30,000 on make-up services. That would be a remarkable sum for anyone to spend, but what makes it even more remarkable is that Macron is only 39, the youngest French President ever, […]
Clearly there is much more to this case than has come out so far.
