Tech at Night: Rand Paul wins more privacy for the Islamic State
Part of the USA PATRIOT act ensured NSA could check up on conversations foreigners were having, that involved data passing into America, by going to the FISA courts and getting a warrant. After 9/11, when terrorist cells came here and murdered many Americans, we understood the need for that. Well, some Republicans remembered, but Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) 82% forgot, and it | Read More »

Bush, Barack Obama, and various other recent key players for the slow-rolling failure of the current Iraqi state.

My moment of candor this Friday
Were it me, I would not engage in the style of publicity and antics Pamela Geller and her organization engaged it. I take to heart Proverbs 3:34 that “He mocks proud mockers but shows favor to the humble and oppressed.” I also take the golden rule to heart. I appreciate the point Martha McCallum and Franklin Graham made. Just because we have the right, does | Read More »
Yes and But In the Wrong Order

Though not technically | Read More »

The death toll right now sits at 135 people, and at least 345 have been injured. None of this should be truly surprising for anyone following current events in the region.

ISIS Is Not Lying To Anyone
He Means Business. Evil Business. Christopher Cornell of Cincinnati, Ohio doesn’t deal in pretense or mince words. He joined ISIS, he stockpiled weapons, and he intended to wax prominent figures in and around DC. He threatened to personally shoot President Barack Obama. It’s a shame nobody found Cornell a nice job at Target or Jiffy Lube. He describes his plans below. | Read More »

Now, it has been reported that ISIS has abducted at least 150 more Assyrian Christians from northeastern Syria.

Congressman Gutierrez on Immigration – Terrorism Works Like Hell!
Genicidier Wannabe Why should ISIS burn more people alive? It’s probably not even personal anymore. That sort of thing only strokes Mr. Jones until it gets boring. Well, there are logical reasons to chuck gays off the roof also. When dealing with squeam-livered Westerners, it has a positive ROI. ISIS just watches how Americans do politics and figure it’s the only | Read More »
