    Obama Administration’s Justice Department Refuses to Seek Justice for Targeted Americans

    The Obama Administration’s IRS targeted Americans for their political beliefs. Former top IRS official Lois Lerner abused the power of her office and refused to answer any questions from congressional oversight committees after proclaiming her own innocence.

    The House Oversight Committee recommended specific action be taken to prosecute her criminally and voted her in contempt of Congress, yet the Obama Administration’s Justice Department has done nothing to pursue justice.

    Two Genocidal Jihadist Armies Merge in the Cowardice of Silence

    The “Islamic State Africa.” Not the words anyone wanted to hear, but it should come as no surprise.

    The most barbarically brutal jihadist army in Africa, Boko Haram, has joined with the most heinous jihadist army in the Middle East, ISIS – the Islamic State.

    Boko Haram, as we have long warned, is every bit as horrific in its atrocities as ISIS. It has slaughtered thousands of Christians, destroyed Christian villages, and gunned down worshipers.

    Palestinian Authority Directly Responsible for Terrorist Attacks on Israel

    My colleagues and I at the ACLJ have long warned about the dangers of embracing the Palestinian “unity government” formed by the Palestine Authority and the terrorist group Hamas.

    Now a federal court has held that the Palestinian Authority itself is directly responsible for terrorist attacks carried out on Israeli civilians.

    Hollywood’s Self-Indulgent Delusional Demagoguery

    Last night, Hollywood conducted its annual ritual of worshiping at the altar of self-indulgence and self-love, the Oscars.

    As part of this cultish ritual, the event included the traditional parade of political leftist propaganda. The liberal elites of Hollywood take to the microphone to tout whatever the leftist cause de jour happens to be, as the rest of Hollywood eats it up with standing ovations.

    For anyone who has an ounce of critical thinking ability (critical thinking, not PC dogmatic zombism), it’s almost unbearable to watch (it’s like watching sausage being made, with rotten meat, and then watching someone eat it, on prime-time TV).

    The Disconnect Between President Obama and President Obama on ISIS

    President Obama is now asking Congress for authority to declare war on ISIS – the Islamic State – something ISIS declared on America more than two years ago.

    Putting aside the debate of whether he actually needs congressional authority to continue to take the fight to this terrorist army or whether what he is requesting being authorized to do is sufficient, there is a vast conflict and contrast emerging within President Obama’s “strategy.”

    Finally Someone on the Left Gets It: It’s Not “Violent Extremism,” It’s Radical Islam

    Finally, someone on the Left gets it.

    You won’t hear me say that often, but when someone is right, they’re right.

    Iraq War veteran and current Congresswoman Tulsi Gabbard (HI-2) didn’t mince words in explaining how she feels about the Obama Administration’s insistence that we only refer to terrorists as “violent extremists” and not radical Islamists.

    Virginia County to Interrogate Homeschool Teens about Their Religious Beliefs

    A school board in Virginia is considering the repeal of a policy that would have forced 14-year-old minors to stand before the school board to be interrogated about their religious beliefs.

    The Goochland County policy is aimed at homeschool families that fall under Virginia’s decades-old religious exemption statute, which acknowledges parents’ rights to direct the upbringing and education of their children.

    Boko Haram’s Radical Islamic Jihadist Army Barbarically Murders 2,000 More

    As the world has watched the horrific terrorist attacks in Paris, France last week, as radical Islamic jihadists murdered over a dozen innocent civilians and struck at the very heart of freedom, another terrorist group carried out what is being called the “second-deadliest terrorist attack in modern history.”

    Boko Haram, a radical Islamic jihadist army similar in its barbaric tactics to ISIS, slaughtered an estimated 2,000 innocent human beings last week, literally exterminating an entire city in northern Nigeria.

    Sexting, Lobbying, and an Abortion Movie: How $500 Million Tax Dollars Helped Planned Parenthood

    Planned Parenthood admittedly aborted at least 327,653 unborn babies last year and took in $528.4 million in our tax dollars, 41% of its total revenue, last year.

    Since you and I are handing the abortion giant more than half a billion dollars of our hard earned tax dollars each year, maybe we should be able to ask what we helped pay for this year.

    Planned Parenthood: Abortion by Any Other Name, Still Raking in Huge Profits at Taxpayer’s Expense

    Planned Parenthood’s latest annual report is a sobering reminder that it remains the unquestioned leader of the Culture of Death.

    As it has seen across the board increases in abortions, taxpayer dollars, and profits during President Obama’s time in office, Planned Parenthood continues to play the American people for fools.
