The Strange Case of the Secular
Progressive-Islamist Alliance
American Thinker, by Marvin Folkertsma    Original Article

One of the frequently cited quips in the halls of Congress is that politics makes for strange bedfellows, meaning that some alliances between Democrats and Republicans, especially given today´s toxic environment in Washington, are hard to fathom. However, perhaps even more difficult to understand is the strange affinity that has developed over the past two decades between Islamists – radical Muslims – and the American progressive movement, or what Michael Walsh has termed the "unholy left." At first glance, the two entities seem utterly different – one proceeding from the darker recesses of Islamic culture, and the other a seemingly quintessential

Donald Trump didn’t waste any time Tuesday night proving that all politics is local, promising an estimated crowd of more than 5,000 at the Myrtle Beach convention center that if he’s elected president, he would build an interstate to Myrtle Beach. “I love Myrtle Beach, I’ve been here many times, but we’ve got to get I-[73] built, it’s time,” Trump said. “It will bring a lot of business, and I guarantee you when I get in there, it’s going to start pretty quickly.” Local leaders have lobbied for years to build Interstate 73 to Myrtle Beach, however Trump inadvertently referred to

As Americans prepare for their Thanksgiving Day feasts, there´s an issue on the horizon that could make that turkey more expensive: taxing meat to reduce climate change. Livestock is a major contributor to greenhouse gas emissions, adding about the same amount of emissions as that of all the world´s vehicles, according to a new report from the U.K. policy institute Chatham House. But many consumers aren´t aware of the link between their dinner plates and climate change, the report notes. At the same time, meat consumption is forecast to increase by 76 percent over the next several decades, thanks to

A group of black U.S. lawmakers and other prominent figures on Tuesday called on the federal government to declare a national holiday to mark Abolition Day, the official end to the nation´s use of slavery. Members of the Congressional Black Caucus as well as a federal appeals judge and the NAACP released a petition asking for the holiday to fall on Dec. 6, which this year marks the 150th anniversary of the ratification of the 13th Amendment.

MYRTLE BEACH, S.C.— Donald Trump´s wife campaigned with him in South Carolina on Tuesday, telling voters she loved them and saying her husband would be "the best president, ever." Flanked by her parents and the businessman´s children, Melania Trump took the podium at a rally in Myrtle Beach. Trump´s family left the stage before the Republican presidential hopeful launched into more than an hour of criticism of both his GOP rivals and the Obama administration. He also again called out Hillary Clinton as lacking the "strength or the stamina" to lead the country. A few minutes into his remarks, Trump also called up

The Democratic National Committee sent an email Tuesday to supporters with advice on how to talk to their Republican relatives during the holiday season, referring them to a website aimed at debunking right-wing talking points. “It’s that time of year — full of food and fun and celebrating with family and friends. But we here at the DNC know that occasionally all that togetherness can lead to some … let’s call them ‘lively’ conversations about politics with one Republican uncle,” reads the email, sent by Luis Miranda, DNC communications director. “So I’m officially deputizing you to serve as a Deputy

Democratic presidential front-runner Hillary Rodham Clinton’s populist anti-Wall Street pitch is wearing thin with liberal activists who say her financial reform proposals are too weak and her record is too tainted by millions of dollars in campaign contributions from the financial sector. After collecting $17 million in donations from big banks over the years, Mrs. Clinton is at risk of being seen as too cozy with Wall Street — an image Sen. Bernard Sanders, her chief competitor for the Democratic nomination, is hoping to capitalize on. He’s running ads in Iowa and New Hampshire, home of the first caucuses and

Jeff Bezos’s space company pulled off a complex landing maneuver with its New Shepard space vehicle Monday in what he touted as a breakthrough that could help dramatically lower the cost of spaceflight. During a test flight in West Texas, Blue Origin successfully launched its unmanned New Shepard vehicle to 329,839 feet, or just over 62 miles, the threshold for space in what the founder of Amazon.com called a “flawless” mission. The capsule separated and returned to Earth, landing with parachutes. But more significant was the landing of the rocket booster, which descended, flew through 119 mph high-altitude crosswinds and

Florida Senator and Republican presidential candidate Sen.

Federal officials placed immigrant youths with convicted criminals, including sex traffickers and human smugglers, then refused to remove them even after a whistle-blower alerted officials, two senators alleged Tuesday. At least 3,400 sponsors — about 12% of 29,000 listed in a government database — had criminal histories that included domestic violence, homicide, child molestation, sexual assault and human trafficking, the whistle-blower told Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Charles E. Grassley (R-Iowa) and Sen. John Cornyn (R-Texas).

Harris County, Ga. – A sheriff in western Georgia said he is getting positive responses from a “politically incorrect” sign. According to ABC affiliate WTVM in Columbus, Harris County Sheriff Mike Jolley posted a photo of him standing next to a sign outside the sheriff’s office in Hamilton, Ga. that states: “Welcome to Harris County, Georgia! WARNING: Harris County is politically incorrect. We say: Merry Christmas, God Bless America and In God We Trust; We salute our troops and our flag. If this offends you… LEAVE!” Jolley told WTVM that he plans to post more of the signs around the county.

The Obama administration let hundreds of illegal immigrants stay in the U.S. even though federal authorities knew in advance that an open borders group coached them to falsely claim “credible fear” to get asylum, according to documents obtained by Judicial Watch from the Department of Homeland Security (DHS). The operation was part of a scam conducted by an immigrant rights organization called the National Immigrant Youth Alliance (NITA), which in recent years has coordinated demonstrations along the Southwest border in Texas and Arizona. In mid-2014 the group orchestrated a racket seeking to bring 250 illegal aliens into the U.S. through

BEIRUT — NATO faced being thrust into a new Middle Eastern crisis on Tuesday after warplanes from member state Turkey shot down a Russian jet that Turkish officials said had violated their country’s airspace on the border with Syria. The incident marked a serious escalation that is likely to further strain relations between Russia and the NATO alliance. Russian officials confirmed that a Russian Su-24 attack aircraft was shot down Tuesday morning but insisted it had not violated Turkey’s airspace. Russia’s Defense Ministry said one of at least two pilots probably died during the incident, and a marine also was killed by apparent

Amid a wave of jihadist terrorism in France, Sinai, Lebanon and Mali, members of the United Nations met on Monday to focus on “Palestine,” with several speakers accusing Israel of fueling the violence across the region. “The continued Israeli occupation of Arab and Palestinian territory is the main challenge before the international community to achieve peace and stability in the region and the world,” said Arab League secretary-general Nabil al-Arabi, in a speech read out by his representative. “This occupation represents the main cause for the spread of terrorism and extremist ideology in the region,” he said.

Francois Hollande’s trip to Washington Tuesday is probably the most important visit by a French president to the United States in decades. It comes against a backdrop of the biggest act of terror on French soil since the Nazi occupation in the 1940s. As Mr. Hollande has declared, France is “at war” with the Islamic State, responsible for massacring more than 130 people on the streets of Paris on Nov. 13. This is a moment when the free world must be united in the face of a tremendous evil advanced by Islamic terrorists who seek our destruction. It is also a

INDIANAPOLIS, Ind.– The American Civil Liberties Union of Indiana and ACLU national filed a lawsuit against Governor Mike Pence and the secretary of the Indiana Family and Social Services Administration on behalf of Exodus Refugee Immigration. The lawsuit was filed to stop attempts by the governor to suspend resettlement of Syrian refugees, and ACLU claims the governor’s actions violate the United States Constitution and federal law. “There is no border around the state of Indiana that prevents people from entering our state who may move freely within the United States,” said ACLU of Indiana legal director Ken Falk. “Decisions concerning immigration and

Sen. Jeff Sessions (R-AL)82% is out with a list of 15 vetted refugees who quickly joined jihad plots to attack the United States. He’s spotlighting the refugees-turned-jihadis because he’s trying to prod GOP leaders into halting Congress’ normal practice of giving the president huge leeway to import foreign migrants and refugees into the United States. This year, Obama is promising to bring in an extra 10,000 low-skill, potentially difficult-to-integrate Syrian migrants into the United States. Sessions and other critics fear he’ll use his many powers — and Congress’ autopilot funding for refugee programs — to bring in far more than

Valuable vehicles and equipment are being yanked from law enforcement agencies across the country by the Obama administration in the wake of the president’s post-Ferguson order -- as sheriffs and lawmakers tell FoxNews.com the equipment is needed, and losing it could put officers and the communities they serve in danger. “These things are useful tools and the president taking them away will put more officers in jeopardy and at risk of harm or even death.

A U.S. Navy SEAL teammate and friend once described the worst type of leader as a “tortured genius.” By this, he did not mean the artist or musician suffering from inspired hysteria, but someone who, no matter how obvious the failing or how fair and valid the criticism, accepts no blame and denies all responsibility. In the mind of such a leader, the rest of the world simply can’t see the “genius” in what they do. In truth, this type of leader lives in denial of the facts as they are, rationalizing actions and refusing to alter or adapt strategies to win. To such a person, maintaining the illusion that he is right is somehow more important

Under fire for being heartless when it comes to refugees, Gov. Chris Christie on Tuesday defended his view that it was too dangerous to take in persecuted Syrians and warned that America could pay a deadly price for being politically correct about the matter. “We cannot allow ourselves, at a time of great peril, to put ourselves voluntarily at even greater risk just because they think it makes our country look better,” Mr. Christie said in a foreign policy speech at the Council on Foreign Relations in Washington. “This is common sense.” Mr. Christie, a Republican presidential candidate, said that Americans should

It’s too early to tell how the terrorist attacks in Paris will reshape the Republican presidential contest. But they have brought sudden intensity, attention and focus to Chris Christie’s once-moribund candidacy, writes the New York Times. New Jersey Gov. Christie, the Times writes, keeps returning on the campaign trail to the subject of the Sept. 11, 2001 attacks, seizing on their emotional power and casting the attacks as a moment of awakening that taught him to govern “the world as it is, not as we wish it to be.” In a report from New Hampshire, the Times writes that voters there

The latest poll out of Iowa confirms a couple of trends that has been building in recent weeks. Dr. Ben Carson’s brief stay at the top of the polls has come to an end, and the principle beneficiary of his collapse is Senator Ted Cruz. But the implications of this development go beyond the fierce competition for Christian conservative and evangelical voters that Cruz appears to be winning. It also creates the very real possibility that when the GOP race starts to clarify, not only will Cruz be a first-tier candidate with a real chance to win the nomination. It

Donald Trump is getting lots of attention for his invented claim that "thousands and thousands" of Muslims in New Jersey cheered and celebrated after the attacks on the World Trade Center. But it´s not news that Trump is willing to engage in fact-free demonizing of minorities. What is news is how Chris Christie responded. The governor of New Jersey has made a point of reminding voters of his deep feeling about the attack. His wife was near the site of the attacks and he lost friends on 9/11. He´s even said that he was appointed U.S. Attorney the day before,

US warplanes have destroyed 283 fuel tankers that were being used to transport oil to help fund ISIS in eastern Syria. The huge air raid is another milestone as the US-led coalition intensifies its campaign against the jihadists and focuses on their oil-smuggling infrastructure, estimated to net the group some $500 million a year. Pentagon spokesman Captain Jeff Davis said the strike occurred Saturday between Al Hasakah and Dayr Az Zawr in the east. It came less than a week after another, similar strike destroyed 116 ISIS fuel trucks. Just as in that earlier case, US jets on Saturday first conducted a low-flying
