No, Huffington Post, the Pilgrims Were Not Refugees
There are few things more amusing than watching the left contort themselves attempting to bootstrap an image that they imagine appeals to the mouth-breathing, knuckle-dragging, WalMart-shopping, rednecks out in fly-over country into whatever their pet cause du jour is. What makes this impulse so cute is the idea that if they relate to us in terms we’ll understand they will make their point and when they use | Read More »
Turkey Shoots Down Russian Military Jet
Yesterday, a Russian SU-24, a knock-off of the now retired F-111, was shot down over Turkey. The details are unclear. Russia is claiming it was moping along over Syria, minding its own business, and was shot down by ground fire. The Turks tell a different story: A Turkish military statement said the plane entered Turkish airspace over the town of Yayladagi, in Hatay province. “On | Read More »
Europeans Say Terrorists Are Impossible To Find Among Refugees
Syrian refugees strike in front of Budapest Keleti railway station. Refugee crisis. Budapest, Hungary, Central Europe, 3 September 2015. Well, so much for the “rigorous screening process” we are told exists to screen refugees for admittance to the United States: As the hunt for jihadists widens after last week’s Paris attacks, authorities in Greece warn it was virtually impossible to pick | Read More »
The One Big Secret That Will Make Hillary’s Foreign Policy A Success
Yesterday, Hillary Clinton gave a speech on her strategy for countering ISIS yesterday at the Council on Foreign Relations. If anything it exhibited anything at all it was that she was completely bereft of insight, introspection, and ideas. Broken down, here are her main themes. Assume Away the Russians We should also work with the coalition and the neighbors to impose no-fly zones that will | Read More »
The Obama administration was remarkably convincing on the Syrian refugee question!
The administration managed to get politicians opposing the House Syria refugee slowdown bill to support it. I’d say that took skill, but it’s a kind of anti-skill that would blow up any skill that it touches.

George Takei Needs To Take A US History Class
The Syrian “refugee”kefuffle is just a gift that keeps on giving. At this point I’m not all that certain what it is giving and whom is receiving, that will become more clear over time. A couple of days ago, we posted on the growing resistance of governors to the resettlement of Syrian “refugees” in their states. Now we have a new entrant to the scrum, the | Read More »
Why We Can’t Trust Obama’s Bogus Refugee Screening Program
The Obama administration is making a big deal of the “rigorous screening process” used to vet Syrian refugees. This is supposed to convince us that the US government, which is not noted for high levels of competence in things like providing health care to veterans or NOT paying Social Security payments to the deceased, is able to interview refugees in a camp in a third | Read More »
Make the President an offer he can’t refuse on refugees
As much as we rightly fear Islamic terror coming into our country, at the same time I think most of us also understand the legitimate fears any woman and mother has living in the Islamic world. So when it comes to refugees, let’s take the President at his word, and do a good deed at the same time. Let’s set a quota demanding that refugees | Read More »
RedState FactCheck: Yes, Refugees In the United States Are Involved In Terrorism
Ever since the bodies stopped falling in Paris on Friday night (US time) and the left began to see the damage done to their master plan to create a “multi-cultural” Europe and United State — a hell-hole replete with female genital mutilation, rape gangs, honor killings, and police no-go zone –by infusing several hundred thousand “refugees” of dubious provenance, they have been lashing out at | Read More »
Ted Cruz to Barack Obama: “Come back and insult me to my face.”
Ted Cruz called out Barack Obama for a debate. Barack Obama has no intention of getting into that debate, because he’d lose it and Obama’s a coward anyway.

Turks Chant Allahu Akbar During Moment Of Silence For Paris
Turkey’s players observe a minute of silence to honour the victims of the Paris attacks prior to an international friendly soccer match against Greece, in Istanbul, Tuesday Nov. 17, 2015. (AP Photo/Lefteris Pitarakis) Today the Turkish and Greek national soccer teams met for a match. Before the game a moment of silence was requested in remembrance of the people killed by | Read More »
Why Won’t Obama Follow the Law And Use A Religious Test For Refugees?
The Syrian refugee crisis has raised a very real concern about the nature of the refugees that will be admitted under Obama’s resettlement plan. While America has historically been open to refugees, it has also drawn the line at admitting people who are inimical with our institutions. For instance, we have banned anarchists and communists from coming to the United States at various times in | Read More »
How the State Department Lied To the Press About Syrian Refugees
According to the UN High Commissioner for Refugees, over 62% of all Syrian “refugees” are military age males. This is a problem. Single, military age men are very rarely refugees as defined by US law. They are, however, fertile recruiting ground for terrorists. The Obama administration has sought to downplay this risk by, well, lying. A sample is from BuzzFeed’s Andrew Kaczynski, who has taken | Read More »
Why Governors Can’t Refuse To Take Syrian Refugees But That Doesn’t Mean They Have To
The Obama administration’s plan to accept some tens of thousands of Syrian “refugees.” I put refugees in scare quotes because this is more accurately a population migration not a refugee problem. These people are not fleeing a war zone. They have already done that. These people are fleeing the safety and relative comfort of internationally supported refugee camps in Turkey. They also are not refugees | Read More »
