Afghan security forces tipped off Taliban in failed attempt to kill Secretary of Defense Mattis

“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 […]

Oklahoma Beheading Trial of Jah’Keem Yisrael: Is Obeying the Qur’an a Form of Mental Illness?

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 […]

President Trump announces new entry restrictions on Iran, Libya, Somalia, Syria, Yemen, North Korea, Venezuela

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,” […]

What happens when an ordinary American stands up to the global jihad?

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.

VIDEO: The Endlessly Transformable Muslim Identity Politics Warrior

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 […]

Supreme Court votes for national security, upholds Trump travel ban

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 […]

Steve Bannon: Catholic Church has ‘economic interest’ in ‘unlimited illegal immigration’

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 […]

Clearly there is much more to this case than has come out so far.
