Turkey in Crisis: Another Lesson Why U.S. Should Avoid Foreign Meddling

Dems in Philly: Fight Trump, Not ISIS

Erick Erickson, The Resurgent

Most striking of all was what was not there. The Democrats celebrated illegal aliens, some tried to justify and rationalize murdering police officers, they all attacked Trump, but not a soul in prime time bothered to mention the war against Islamic radicalism or ISIS.

Our Impulsive Foreign Policy Establishment

Patrick J. Buchanan, The American Conservative

Donald Trump calls the NATO alliance a rip-off, a tripwire for World War III and “obsolete.” Hillary Clinton compares Putin’s actions in Ukraine to Hitler’s actions in Germany in the early 1930s. Looking for a four-year faceoff with a nuclear-armed Russia? Hillary’s the one!

Liberal Journalist Goes Shooting Once And Gets “PTSD”

If shooting leaves you in terror and gives you “PTSD” after a few minutes on a gun range don’t buy a gun, and for sure don’t try to take mine.

What ISIS Wants

Patrick J. Buchanan, The American Conservative

ISIS believes that by repeatedly wounding and provoking the West, it can reignite a war of civilizations.

Kristen East, Politico

“Enough is enough. What we need is for every American — Democrat and Republican — to come together, abandon political correctness, and unite in defeating radical Islamic terrorism,” the Texas Republican said in a lengthy call to action on Sunday.

Would You Fly On This American Airlines Plane?

Why, after the Blind Sheikh's bombing of the World Trade Center, 9/11, the rise of ISIS, and a multitude of Muslim terrorist attacks, including the downing of Russia’s MetroJet Flight 9268 with a bomb planted by an insider, and now EgyptAir Flight 804, do we allow Sharia-compliant Muslims to access soft targets like airliners?

The Islamic State Creates Killer Caliphate to Eradicate Christians

The slaughter of Middle Eastern Christians and other persecuted faiths is one of the great tragedies of our age. There is no panacea, no easy solution to the ongoing conflict. But Americans can, indeed, must act even when their government does not.

Nothing to Worry about from Middle-Eastern Refugees? Think Again

Coining the term “refujihadists,” our friend Deroy Murdock has a great column in National Review documenting the militant-Islamic killers lurking among the vast tide of Muslims leaving the Middle East for Europe… and America. Murdock documents nine individuals who entered the West as “refugees” and subsequently committed terrorist acts, but as Senators Ted Cruz and Jeff Sessions pointed out last summer, that's just the tip of the iceberg. Please use #refujihadi to tell Congress it is time to end this existential threat to our security and constitutional liberty.

The UN Says You Could Be A ‘Violent Extremist’ And Obama Agrees

Obama's Secretary of the Department of Homeland Security told participants in a recent UN symposium on countering violent extremism that “overheated rhetoric” on the Republican presidential campaign trail about Muslims and Muslim communities is the problem, and that in his estimation the real culprits spreading violent extremism are the GOP presidential candidates and their supporters – in other words – you.

Giving Hope To Evil

Michael Ledeen, Forbes

President Obama claims he is acting in the cause of peace, but he is actually catalyzing a war that we are currently losing. Obama believes enemies can become friends if they are treated with respect and understanding. But that does not work with convinced and determined enemies of the sort now bombing our cities and shooting our people. 

Warning from Brussels: Ted Cruz Has the Best Team to Defeat Jihad

Ted Cruz’s choice of his national security team shows he gets it and his choice of Frank Gaffney as a member of his national security team proves once again that Cruz is the only candidate for President that conservatives can trust to actually deliver a workable strategy to defeat ISIS and defend our homeland and culture from the Islamist threat.
