Jindal Warns Of Sharia

Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal, a potential Republican candidate for president, warned in an interview Monday on the Family Research Council’s Washington Watch radio program of the possibility of so-called Muslim “no go zones” coming to America, focusing later on what he called a possible sharia “colonization” and “invasion” of America. “If we’re not careful the same no-go zones you’re seeing now in Europe will come to America,” said Jindal singling out those in “academic” and “media elite” who he said “don’t want to proclaim American exceptionalism.” Jindal has been critical over the past several weeks of what he has said are “no-go

In an attempt to shame residents of their city, a new Seattle law will levy a fine on homes that do not properly sort food out of their garbage. Emblazoned with a red citation tag, violators will start to be fined anywhere from $1-$50 in July. For now, Seattle residents will be publicly shamed by the ‘Scarlet Letter’-like tags.

Loretta Lynch is promising a fresh relationship with law enforcement – and with Congress – as she appears before a Senate committee Wednesday in her bid to become the nation´s first female black attorney general. But she has serious hurdles in front of her as the Senate Judiciary Committee, now under Republican control, warns about ´a Department of Justice that is deeply politicized´ under the outgoing AG, Eric Holder. Iowa Republican Sen. Chuck Grassley, the committee´s chairman, said in his opening statement that America´s next top law enforcer would need to worry about ´restoring respect for the co-equal branches of government.´

´Gargantuan´ wild hog weighing
nearly 800 pounds caught in Texas
Express-News (San Antonio TX), by Rebecca Salinas    Original Article

A ginormous hog that tipped the scale at 790 pounds is living carefree, and getting fed and watered down in his corral – for now. The hog was bagged after what could be a catch of a lifetime for Blaine Garcia and Wyatt Walton on a ranch Jan. 16 in De Leon, a town about 35 minutes west of Stephenville and 95 miles southwest of Fort Worth. That Friday was an ordinary day of hunting on land owned by Comanche County Commissioner Jimmy Dale Johnson, until Garcia found the signs of a large hog in the area. “I did a

Argument For Executive Amnesty

President Obama’s nominee for Attorney General dodged important questions about the president’s executive amnesty for millions of illegal immigrants, but indicated that the legal argument was “reasonable.” During a Senate Judiciary Hearing this morning, nominee Loretta Lynch explained that she was “not involved” in the administration’s decision on Obama’s executive decision and therefore was unable to “comment on the particulars.” She indicated that she has had the opportunity to review the president’s decision prior to the hearing as well as the arguments surrounding the case. “Certainly it seems to be a reasonable discussion of legal precedent,” she said, adding, “I don’t

AUSTIN, Texas — A Texas judge on Tuesday refused to dismiss a felony abuse-of-power case against former Gov. Rick Perry on constitutional grounds, ruling that criminal charges against the possible 2016 presidential candidate should stand. District Judge Bert Richardson, who like Perry is a Republican, rejected calls from Perry´s defense team to toss the case because its client was acting within his rights as chief executive of America´s second-most populous state when he publicly threatened, then carried out, a 2013 veto of state funding for public corruption prosecutors. Richardson wrote that, "Texas law clearly precludes a trial court from making

Other than his vow that under ObamaCare Americans´ health care costs would decline, one of President Obama´s most often-promised goals is helping the country´s middle class. It´s been severely beleaguered during his reign by fewer full-time jobs, stagnant wages and declining work hours. In his State of the Union peroration last week, Obama repeated this goal. One of his ideas was to make the first two years of higher education free in the nation´s community colleges for anyone continuously pursuing a degree with adequate grades. One problem emerging during Obama´s nearly 73-month presidency is that his free stuff isn´t really

The centerpiece of a national security strategy is to isolate and exploit an enemy’s vulnerable “center of gravity.” Carl von Clausewitz, the 19th-century Prussian military philosopher and father of modern military theory, defined center of gravity as “the source of power that provides moral or physical strength, freedom of action, or will to act.” Conventional wisdom inside the Pentagon and among defense intellectuals is that the vulnerable center of gravity of today’s enemy is its extreme Islamist ideology. Speaking on “Fox News Sunday” after the Charlie Hebdo attacks in Paris, Gen. Martin Dempsey, the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of

The Obama administration is reportedly ordering immigration enforcement agents to identify and release illegal immigrants, including those in jail, who may qualify for President Barack Obama’s executive amnesty. The Associated Press reviewed Homeland Security documents that revealed Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) and Customs and Border Protection (CBP) agents have been given a checklist of questions to ask illegal immigrants they encounter about “whether they might qualify under President Barack Obama’s plans to avoid deporting them.” The training materials reportedly order agents “to immediately begin identifying persons in their custody, as well as newly encountered persons,” who may qualify for

SAN FRANCISCO — Apple rang up record quarterly results from — what else? — iPhone sales. The company added that Apple Watch will start shipping in April. Apple´s first-quarter revenue of $74.6 billion and earnings per share of $3.06 easily surpassed analyst estimates of $67.7 billion and $2.60 for the three-month period ended Dec. 31. Its profit was a record $18 billion. Apple´s blow-out quarter surprised even analysts, who expected a whopper during the traditionally strong holiday shopping season, and sent the company´s stock soaring. In extended trading, Apple shares were up 5%, to $114.74. (Apple announced its first-quarter results after

The entire state of California pubic education system is to begin grading students on matters a teacher cannot possibly know or evaluate objectively. In a sign of descent into full indoctrination camp mode, the Common Cores standards adopted by the state are calling on teachers to grade students on their “grit, gratitude, and sensitivity to others.” (snip)Obviously, there are no objective standards possible, so teachers will subjectively evaluate students on these qualities. And human nature being what it is, the degree to which a child conforms to the teacher’s own vision of human nature and the correct viewpoint. Education schools

Jordan prepared to swap inmate

Jordan is willing to swap an Iraqi woman prisoner involved in a deadly 2005 hotel bombing for a Jordanian pilot captured in December by extremists from the Islamic State group, a government spokesman said Wednesday. Such a swap would run counter to Jordan´s hard-line approach toward Islamic militants and to the position of its main ally, the United States, not to negotiate with extremists. An exchange also would set a precedent for negotiating with Islamic State group militants who in the past have not publicly demanded prisoner releases.

If the lines at bodegas and grocery stores across the city on Sunday and Monday were any indication, the Big Apple is filled with former Girl and Boy Scouts. Heeding the scout’s motto to “be prepared” — and abiding by the mayor’s draconian dictum that “the food delivery bicycle is not an emergency vehicle” — New Yorkers prepared to attempt cooking at home and stocked up on staples like milk, eggs, chicken and, of course, organic kale.

In today’s Impromptus, I have occasion to mention Richard Helms, just in passing. He was CIA director from 1966 to 1973. Then he was ambassador to Iran. He was one of my favorite people in public life. (Sometimes the CIA isn’t very public, true.) I had a couple of exchanges with him — one by letter and one in person — and am grateful for them. In my column, I mention that, as a journalist, he interviewed Hitler. This was in ’36. In the war that came, he was an intelligence operative. And he snuck into the Chancellery after Hitler offed

Two pageants held the attention of the media over the last few days. The first was the burial of the Saudi King, which though ceremonially simple attracted presidents and kings, prime ministers and potentates, a testament according to the BBC’s Jonny Dymond, of “Saudi Arabia’s global standing”. The second was the world economic forum at Davos, which had so many “power” figures that its participants had to be categorized into divisions like the Oscar awards.

The Pentagon has relabelled its battle plan for fighting China in the Western Pacific. The battle plan formerly known as AirSea Battle is from now on to be known as “Joint Concept for Access and Maneuver in the Global Commons.” This is very good news because the use of the term Global Commons in the title goes to the heart of what is at stake for the United States and the rest of the free world. China is intent upon starting a war with Japan and seizing a large patch of ocean in Southeast Asia. What most people don’t realise about

This time two years ago, U.S. Sen. Marco Rubio stood in a studio, posing for a Time magazine cover declaring him “The Republican Savior.” The first-term senator from Miami was enjoying golden status in the party, with exciting rumors of a President Rubio in the near future. Polls showed that Rubio clearly led the pack — the 2016 GOP nomination was his to lose. And lose it, he did. Only weeks after that Time cover, Rubio made an ill-fated error: He embraced amnesty for millions of undocumented immigrants. Not only was he one of only four Republican senators selling the disastrous “Gang

Has conservative genuflection at the altar of Sarah Palin finally come to a halt? In case you missed it, her speech in Iowa this week was not well received on the right. The Washington Examiner’s Byron York calledit a “long, rambling, and at times barely coherent speech" and National Review’s Charles C. W. Cooke said she slipped into self-parody. And there’s more. The Examiner’s Eddie Scarry, for example, contacted several conservative bloggers who were once Palin fans, but have since moved on. But here’s my question…what changed? Yes, in 2008, Sarah Palin delivered one of the finest convention speeches I’ve ever heard (trust

No photo ops. No disaster duds. No nonsense. Gov. Charlie Baker is handling his first brush with a blizzard with efficient and assuring confidence — like he’s done it dozens of times before. And without a MEMA vest. Despite having no experience leading a major emergency response, Baker easily passed his first major test as governor, with no obvious grandstanding or miscues — at least so far. The new governor did not pose next to snowbanks or pull any other stunts, much to the disappointment of the media. But his performance in the MEMA bunker is likely to get good marks from notoriously

WASHINGTON — It was 42 degrees and raining lightly around 3 a.m. on Monday when an inebriated off-duty employee for a government intelligence agency decided it was a good time to fly his friend’s drone, a 2-foot-by-2-foot “quadcopter” that sells for hundreds of dollars and is popular among hobbyists. But officials say the plan was foiled, perhaps by wind or a tree, when the employee — who has not been named by the Secret Service or charged with a crime — lost control of the drone as he operated it from an apartment just blocks from the White House.

The Illegal Bergdahl Deal: Sordid
Details, Troubling Implications

Multiple news sources are now reporting that the US Army is charging Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl -- the American soldier handed over by terrorist hostage takers in exchange for the release of five high-ranking Taliban commanders from Guantanamo Bay last spring -- with desertion. This comes as no surprise for those who followed the Bergdahl controversy closely; as Katie reminded us earlier, Bergdahl´s platoon mates unanimously spoke out against his actions. The evidence of his desertion is overwhelming. Other facts suggest that he may have crossed a line into active collaboration with the enemy. Despite the fact that the military had

The top Democrat on the House intelligence panel is introducing a bill to authorize President Barack Obama´s war against the Islamic State group. Congressman Adam Schiff of California says he wants to spark debate in Congress over a new authorization to fight Islamic State militants in Iraq and Syria and says lawmakers shouldn´t wait to see if the White House will send over its own proposal. In the battle against the militants, Obama has been relying on congressional authorizations that President George W. Bush used to justify military action after 9/11. The bill Schiff was introducing Wednesday...

On Tuesday’s broadcast of the Family Research Council’s “Washington Watch,” host Tony Perkins asked guest Gov. Bobby Jindal (R-LA) to revisit remarks he made regarding Muslims and the threat of radical Islam. In his discussion with Perkins, however, he warned of the dangers of immigrants not assimilating to American culture. “[O]ne of the great about America is it doesn’t matter if you’ve been here five minutes or a hundred years, we have folks that come here, want to be Americans,” Jindal said. “They join our military, they start companies, they work to create a better community. And that’s wonderful.

Islamic State militants have threatened to behead Barack Obama and turn the U.S. into a Muslim province in the latest gruesome video to emerge from their self-styled caliphate. The footage shows a black-clad jihadist standing over a Kurdish soldier who, in a sickening climax to the video, has his head cut off. Before the hostage is executed, the ISIS fighter warns the U.S. president: ´Know, oh Obama, that we will reach America. ´Know also that we will cut off your head in the White House and transform America into a Muslim province.´ Scroll down for video

The aftermath of the Charlie Hebdo massacre has confirmed something widely suspected: this country’s elites have no interest in defeating terrorism. Out of the 17 people murdered by Jihadi thugs in Paris, four were cops and four were innocent passersby who happened to be in a kosher shop at the wrong moment. But the other nine were perfect examples of 21st-century postmodern secular elites. Sophisticated, skeptical, well-educated, and well-to-do bohos working in media whose response to anything at all was a combination of aloofness, impudence, and irony. In this they were representative of their generation -- essentially French versions of Jon
