FLASH: At Least 28 Dead in Brussels Muslim Terror Attack

The usual suspects, such as Speaker of the House Paul Ryan, President Obama, Hillary Clinton and Governor John Kasich will say this isn’t about the Muslim religion – like Hell it isn’t. In the face of this latest Muslim terror attack it is past time to ask why does America need over 2.3 million Muslim immigrants? Why would our government willingly import this kind of violence to America?

Syrian Opportunity to Help Those Suffering Abroad

Needy people can be helped overseas as well as at home. Last year I visited Zaartari Refugee Camp, located just a few miles from the Syrian border in Jordan. I was traveling with International Orthodox Christian Charities, which carries out an expansive ministry addressing the many needs of Syrians inside and outside of their country.

Stop Reassuring Saudi Arabia, a Worse Threat to the Middle East than Iran

At the Saudis’ behest Washington backs their misbegotten war in Yemen and remains formally committed to the overthrow of Syrian President Bashir al-Assad, the strongest force opposing the far more dangerous Islamic State. The Kingdom of Saudi Arabia also underwrites extremist Islamic teaching in madrassas around the world.

Obama Throws Down The Gauntlet: GOP Leaders Pre-Surrender

Republican leaders will talk a good game for the next year, but don’t expect Obama to leave office with his agenda unfinished, because, as we explain here, Paul Ryan and Mitch McConnell have already “pre-surrendered.”

Bandow: Americans Can Bring Aid and Hope to Syrian Refugees in the Middle East

NGOs offer the best means for Americans to help Syrians in need. There are many worthy organizations. Last year I traveled with International Orthodox Christian Charities to Lebanon and Jordan to view several aid projects. Since 2012 the charity has helped more than 3.2 million Syrians throughout the Middle East.

Obama’s Gun Grab Meant to Distract from ISIS Threat

Michael Needham, The Resurgent

Barack Obama’s effort to turn our attention, again, to gun control, is a distraction from our real problems, and most Americans will recognize it as such. But there’s a lesson for conservatives to take from his approach: when the left tries to redirect the conversation, we need to push back with equal and opposite force.

Marco Rubio Desperately Plays the Isolationist Card

Trying to defend his record of supporting such disastrous misadventures as Iraq and Libya, Marco Rubio denounced unnamed foes who he claims seek “to derail the postwar consensus about America’s role in the world.” This anonymous “they,” he added, “will never call themselves isolationists, but that is exactly what they are.” Against Ted Cruz, the likely intended target, Rubio's claim obviously is nonsense.

Religious Persecution in the Middle East Threatens Us All

The current persecutions inflicted on many Christians in the Arab world is nothing new; is an extension of centuries of Islamic law, discrimination and societal bias, which have relegated Christians, as well as other minorities, to second-class citizenship.

Show Me the War That Will End ISIS Money

Lawrence Kudlow, Real Clear Politics

This past week, the U.N. Security Council, including the U.S. and Russia, put together a resolution to strengthen financial sanctions against anyone who does business with terrorist groups -- mainly ISIS. But these are repackaged sanctions that have been in place for more than a dozen years and haven't done any good. We know the ways and means to destroy the Islamic State. But we're not doing it. 

Foreign Liberals Shouldn’t be Liberal with American Lives and Money

Nothing in liberal philosophy requires residents of the globe’s most powerful “liberal” nation to bankrupt themselves, sacrifice their liberty, and court national destruction to try to make the earth a better place. Americans, especially traditional liberals, should choose domestic peace and prosperity over international charity and conflict.

The West Can Defeat ISIS – but What Comes Next?

Pete Hoekstra and Clare Lopez, The Fiscal Times

Arguments could be made that none of the interventions by the West in the Middle East and northern Africa turned out well. The common lesson learned in Afghanistan, Iraq, Syria and Libya is that nothing is as simple as it looks. Every situation is difficult with many different considerations that all carry grave ramifications.

Obama is Far Nastier to Christians Than ISIS

Erick Erickson, Erickontheradio.com

Establishment Republicans often tend to be far nastier to conservatives than they are to the Democrats. But establishment Democrats more and more show far more grace to those who’d kill us all than they do to the American voter. They’re just following Barack Obama’s example.

Cruz and DeSantis Pair on Terrorist Refugee Infiltration Prevention Act

In a not-so-subtle shot at the national security credibility of Senator Marco Rubio and former Florida Governor Jeb Bush, Rep. Ron DeSantis (FL-06), CHQ’s endorsed candidate in the Florida Senate primary to succeed Rubio, has joined forces with Senator Ted Cruz on the Terrorist Refugee Infiltration Prevention Act.

It Only Takes One: Why We Must Stop Importing Jihad Through Muslim Immigration

Regarding the way ISIS operates retired General Michael Flynn, formerly Director of the Defense Intelligence Agency had this to say, "...there's likely a leader or a leadership structure in each country in Europe. The same is probably similar for the United States, but just not obvious yet...In Paris, there were eight guys. In Mali, there were 10. Next time, maybe one or two guys will be enough."

Obama’s Increasingly Surreal Claims About War on ISIS

Deroy Murdock, National Review

America’s role in the Global War on Terror grows stranger by the hour. President Obama’s fight against ISIS and other radical Islamic terrorists — such as it is — has entered the Twilight Zone. That is the only explanation for Obama’s increasingly bizarre tactics and statements against these existentially dangerous savages.

All Terrorists Are Migrants, It’s Just about WHEN They Migrated

Raheem Kassam, Breitbart

Hungary’s Prime Minister Viktor Orban has again hit out at Europe’s policy of mass migration. Linking Muslim terrorism to the European Union’s (EU) long standing immigration policies, and insisting that “all the terrorists are basically migrants… The question is when they migrated to the European Union”.

Paris attacks bring new scrutiny to visa waiver program

Rebecca Kaplan, CBS News

"As we've known from the French they've got hundreds and thousands of individuals they've got to worry about. The British have thousands of cases that they've got to worry about....So, how do you prioritize when you've got all these people, and how do you know that these individuals are dangerous or not? That's the challenge."
