As Obama Vacillates, ISIS Continues Its Brutal March to Europe’s Doorsteps
Earlier this morning, Erick did an excellent job explaining why Marie Harf and those who support the notion that we can’t win the war against ISIS by killing the bad guys “are damn naïve fools.” Her statements are not particularly surprising when you look at the contents of Obama’s laughable AUMF request for “war” on the Islamic State. I would go as far as saying that | Read More »

Understanding ISIS; understanding Islam
There is an indispensable piece in The Atlantic titled What ISIS Really Wants. Barack Obama would do well to have read it before he starts playing Islamic Pope on the internet and holding forth on what is and what is not actually Islam. It starts with a question that apparently no one in our National Security apparatus has bothered to ask: What is the Islamic | Read More »
Where are the riots over the Islamic State?
Again and again we are told that when Islam or its prophet Mahomet are treated unfairly or insulted, the streets in the Islamic world will erupt in rioting. They rioted in Benghazi over Danish cartoons published in a newspaper. They allegedly rioted over a Youtube video exposing Islam’s history. And yes, they rioted over Charlie Hebdo. So where are the riots against the Islamic State?
Barack Obama Thinks Islam Is Primitive
Reflecting on what Barack Obama said yesterday, I think people are missing something I encounter a lot among so called intellectuals. Liberal intellectuals say things like this: And lest we get on our high horse and think this is unique to some other place, remember that during the Crusades and the Inquisition, people committed terrible deeds in the name of Christ. In our home country, | Read More »
Islamic State Threatens To Murder Two Hostages Unless Japan Pays Up
ISIS has posted a new video to YouTube (since taken down by the site) purportedly showing two Japanese hostages in a now sadly familiar pose, kneeling in orange jumpsuits with a masked terrorist standing over them holding a knife.

“Hate Speech” is not “Any Speech You Hate”
Last week, Vanderbilt University professor Carol Swain wrote an op-ed in the Nashville Tennessean about the Charlie Hedbo attacks. The basic thesis of Professor Swain’s article, which was published in a non-Vanderbilt sanctioned publication and written on her own time, is that present-day Islam is incompatible with Western values like free speech and religious pluralism. The most inflammatory portion of Prof. Swain’s article is doubtless | Read More »
The #ParisMarch Snub In Perspective
(via Rabble Writer) Ouch. A sarcastic but painful video that reminds you of exactly what leadership does, and does not, look like, the Digitas Daily short above is the kind of funnysad that is all too easy to find in Obama’s world. On Sunday, marchers rallied in Paris by the hundreds of thousands. This march was not a photo-op, as desperate Obama hagiographer Chris Hayes | Read More »
You MuhamMAD, bro?

It is not necessary for me to recount for you the events in Paris, the controversy that led up to them, or the consequences in the last week. This you already know. The whole world knows. It is enough to say that, in the name of Islam, terrorists murdered. In response to satire, terrorists, attacked. In the presence of free speech, terror tried to silence.
I noted last night that we do not hear of new converts to Christianity going on to kill, behead, or blow themselves up. More often, though, we are finding in the relativistic, amoral modern West that new recruits to Islam are doing just that. A convert in Oklahoma beheaded a lady. In the last two days various new converts to Islam in Canada have engaged | Read More »
It’s Like a Gang Land Initiation
The man who beheaded that lady in Oklahoma is a recent convert to Islam. The Canadians suffered a terrorist attack today by a recent convert to Islam. The day before they had another attack by a recent convert of Islam. I don’t remember ever hearing about a recent convert to Christianity shooting up a government building, killing a soldier, or beheading anyone. But if you | Read More »
ISIS and the mystery of the jihadi brides
A couple of Austrian girls are seeking a do-over, so to speak: Two Austrian teens got way more than they bargained for when they abandoned their homes and families to become “poster girls” for ISIS terrorists, and now they desperately want to come home. Samra Kesinovic, 17, and friend Sabina Selimovic, 15, would love to press the undo button on the last six months, during | Read More »
Bill Maher Has a Point about Islam, Liberalism and Morality
“We’re liberals … we’re trying to stand up for the principles of liberalism! And so, y’know, I think we’re just saying we need to identify illiberalism wherever we find it in the world, and not forgive it because it comes from [a group that] people perceive as a minority.” – Bill Maher If I live long enough, then I’ll probably see crap stick to the | Read More »
The Inconvenient Truths of Evil and ISIS
A couple of weeks ago I wrote that we must eradicate the evil of ISIS by killing them. More and more Americans are coming to this realization, including our reluctant President, who has been dragged kicking and screaming into the real world. I deliberately used the word “evil” repeatedly in that diary – I wanted to make the point that ISIS is made up of | Read More »

The Myth of Moderate Islam
Steven Crowder makes the case that moderate Islam, as told by our liberal betters, is a myth. (With a little help from Dana Loesch!) ‘ Crowder tears apart the moderate Muslim myth in a blistering new “Louder with Crowder” this week, addressing the blatantly ridiculous claim made by President Obama that ISIS is “not Islamic.” From the legal execution of converts to the the institutionalized | Read More »
