Islamism Isn’t a Religion, It’s a Political System at War with Us

Last week, the Senate Committee on Homeland Security and Government Affairs convened a hearing on political Islam, also called “Islamism.” The committee invited four witnesses: Ayaan Hirsi-Ali, Asra Q. Nomani, Michael E. Leiter, former director of the United States National Counterterrorism Center (NCTC), and John Lenczowski, president of the Institute of World Politics.

Feds Act as Muscle for Mosques

The U.S. Department of Justice is acting as the muscle of local mosques and riding roughshod over the zoning laws of local cities and towns in the process. Whether it be 60 foot minarets that violate height ordinances, insufficient parking for the size of the facilities, or crowds gathered until 3:30am in quiet

The Biggest Threat to the First Amendment is the Press Itself

The media has been deceptive and/or outright lying about Trump for a long time now. Mollie Hemingway detailed just a few of their whoppers in a recent piece. When the president exercised his constitutional authority to fire FBI Director James Comey, the New York Times published a story accusing Trump of pressuring Comey

The Hellscape of an SJW’s “City in Speech”

A curious document has begun to make the rounds on social media. The “Alternatives/Substitutes for Problematic Language” (you now need to request permission to view the document . . . hmmm) is a remarkably candid distillation of what the Social Justice/campus Left in particular and the political Left more broadly have been agitating

Differ with the Southern Poverty Law Center? You’re Evil!

How many far-left groups inspire violent physical attacks on mainstream advocacy organizations or intellectuals and yet still manage to maintain a more or less squeaky-clean image in the media? Chances are you’d be hard pressed to name more than one group―in this case, the highly influential and affluent Southern Poverty Law Center headquartered

Who Will Veto the Hecklers?

President Donald Trump fantasizes from time to time about “opening up” the nation’s libel laws to give himself – and presumably other rich and famous people – a leg up on a “very unfair” press. It’s a far-fetched fantasy. Here’s a better one: Why not confound people’s expectations, be a champion for real

If Speech is Violent, What Next?

In the aftermath of the infamous Battle for Berkeley, the subsequent debacle surrounding Ann Coulter’s invitation to the University of California’s flagship campus, not to mention the attempted infidel-stoning of Charles Murray at Middlebury and the rioting that forced Heather Mac Donald to speak to a mostly empty room at Claremont McKenna College,

Constitutional Buffoonery from the Federal District Courts

The temporary nationwide injunctions placed on President Trump’s most recent executive order, issued March 6 (“Protecting the Nation from Foreign Terrorist Entry into the United States”) by two federal district courts are the latest skirmishes in progressive liberalism’s war against the idea of the sovereign nation-state and the exclusive citizenship that attaches to “separate and
