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

Victory in Afghanistan is Still Possible

“When Americans suffer casualties, they run away from battle,” the high-ranking Taliban commander, Seif Galali, famously told an Al Jazeera interviewer in 2009, after U.S. forces withdrew from the Nuristan Province, due to fierce Taliban resistance. Around that time, Marine Corps platoon leader Lieutenant Jake Kerr, would recount to the legendary military writer

When Words Kill

As every young American is taught (or used to be taught) the Constitution’s First Amendment protects free speech. “Congress shall make no law…abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press…” We can say whatever we want. And that’s as it should be. Societies constraining the freedom of speech have invariably slid by

Of Baseball and Bloodshed in Our Chaotic Age

The annual Congressional Baseball Game for Charity is a bipartisan, bicameral contest between Republican and Democratic teams. Each side diligently practices for weeks, but it is far from toil (though the aging athlete’s aching muscles indicate otherwise). For the participants, it is an idyllic nostalgia trip that swaps the cut and thrust of

Britain Needs a Warlord

The term “warlord” usually conjures an image of a long-bearded fellow with opulent adornments sitting in a large tent in the desert, filled with enthralled servants, plush oriental rugs, sipping tea (or other beverage), and combing through his war booty. Indeed, the term is most usually applied in relation to places like Afghanistan

The Real Collusion

Maybe it will be remembered as the weekend when, at long last, the media-Democrat complex overplayed its hand on the “Collusion with Russia” narrative. They are still having so much fun with the new “Jared back-channel to the Kremlin” angle, they appear not to realize it destroys their collusion yarn. Their giddiness is

Flying Tigers are a Model for Sensible Projection of US Power Abroad

By late 1940, Japan had conquered Manchuria and was pushing south and west across China.  Japan planned to subdue China and then turn east, towards American possessions in the Philippines, Guam, Wake, and Hawaii.  President Roosevelt wanted to fight Japan in China before the war came to us, but what we’d now call

Finally, a Real Man in the White House to Confront Challenge of Middle East Peace

Hang onto your seats, folks. The mentally deranged Left is about to erupt yet once more in one of their echolaliac fits they call reporting. Donald Trump has called Mahmoud Abbas a liar, so here it inevitably comes: What? Unheard of! Disgraceful! Unpresidential. He’s not fit to be President! IMPEACH HIM! Trump not
