Islamic terrorists killed eight people and wounded 48 more in London on June 3 before being shot to death by police. It was the third terrorist attack in Britain in as many months. Last September, after a jihadi attack in New York, London Mayor Sadiq Khan said, “It is a reality I’m afraid that London, New York, other major cities around the world have got to be prepared for these sorts of things.” After the June 3 attack Khan tweeted, “I’m reassured that we are one of the safest global cities in the world if not the safest global cities in the
FTA " Tolerance is the most deadly form of political correctness." Amen!
Have we had enough muslims killing innocents? No, the msm and Democrats desire for diversity and wanting a non white party, muslims from every third world hellhole will continue to pour into the country. They will not assimilate, hate Western Values, hate America, hate the Constitution, love sharia law and will vote for Democrats. What could go wrong? Oh and every killing they do the msm will declare that they were not "Muslim" because Islam is a religion of peace. How do we overcome such stupidity? God help us!
No, "we" haven´t had enough, and more will be served up ad infinitum until we become "the world" - no nations, no religion, no personal liberty. This is 1984 happening in real life...a little violence here and there to herd the scardy cats into government/international "safe zones" begging "big brother" for security. If we only had more intrusive surveillance and expanded government involvement...
No. Most western leaders are not at all serious about this, although they say things like "We are very serious" and "This is enough". They do not really believe it.
Some of the elites, in unguarded moments, make comments like "more people drown each month than are killed by terrorists, why the big deal?"
Supporting Muslims is now still far, far more important to most of the leadership class in Europe and in the USA than is actually doing what is necessary to 100% stop this stuff.
Islam is the problem, and it is still not possible to get this simple fact agreed to by political leaders. They insist on some adjustment which says that only some small minority of Islam is the problem, but most of Islam is just wonderful. Or that there is moderate Islam, and only this small group is twisting Islam into something bad.
No, the root tenets of the Koran are the problem. What Mohammed told them to do is the problem. What they have been doing for 1400 years is the problem.
As Erdogan of Turkey said,"“The term ‘Moderate Islam’ is ugly and offensive. There is no Moderate Islam. ‘Islam is Islam.´”
Yep. Why is it so hard to take them at their word?
Last year, after President-elect Trump picked Jeff Sessions to be attorney general, The New York Times editorial page called the Alabama senator “radical” and “extreme” and tarred him as an unrepentant racist and xenophobe. Last week, after Trump criticized Sessions and others, the same editorial page suddenly discovered a new fondness for Sessions. The Times now insisted that Trump had impugned his “integrity” and that of others “who have spent their careers respecting and protecting” the law. It’s not likely that Sessions is grateful for the embrace. He knows he’s just a pawn — dirt when Trump embraces him, and a saint
The news that President Trump’s legal team is already evaluating the scope of his pardon authority, as well as steps that can be taken to push back on the breadth of Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation, rippled across social media Thursday night. Of particular interest was that Mueller’s potential inquiry into the president’s financial dealings (and his tax returns) has apparently so incensed President Trump and resulted in a warning that the former FBI director should not cross that proverbial “red line.” President Trump, of course, has a long history of being a more-than-capable litigant in his pre-presidential life, and
It’s Thursday, July 20th. As of today, Donald Trump has been president for 6 months. The media coverage of the president is overwhelmingly negative: the press remains contemptuous, and they´re pushing to get him out before he completes his first term. Investors might think differently. The great success of the Trump presidency thus far, is not what he´s done, but what he promises to do, namely, get the economy going again. Evidently, investors believe he might yet get it done. Look at this: since his election win, the Trump rally has added $4.1 trillion to the nation´s wealth. Anyone with a
WASHINGTON -- New White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders was schooled in hardscrabble politics - and down-home rhetoric - from a young age by her father, former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee. Her way with a zinger - and her unshakable loyalty to an often unpredictable boss - are big reasons why she became a rising star in President Donald Trump´s orbit. She´ll take over for Sean Spicer, who abruptly announced Friday that he´s resigning, effective at the end of August. Sanders steps into what has been deemed the most difficult job in Washington. Her responsibilities are not just to do
White House senior adviser and President Trump’s son-in-law Jared Kushner filed an amended version of his personal financial disclosure form on Friday that showed his initial filing omitted dozens of additional assets, according to a new report. Kushner’s new disclosure includes 77 assets that were “inadvertently omitted” from Kushner’s original disclosure and include real estate, bonds and a personal art collection, The Wall Street Journal reported. The refiled form also adds additional details about Kushner’s real estate assets that were included on his original disclosure form filed in March. One of the disclosures Kushner omitted was a business relationship with Goldman Sachs and
These are the worst of times for the American news media, but they are also the best. The newspaper industry as a whole has been dying slowly for years, as the pathetic tale of the once-mighty Chicago Tribune reminds us. But for the handful of well funded journalistic enterprises that survive, the Trump era is turning out to be a “golden age” – a time of high purpose and moral vindication. The people of the respectable east coast press loathe the president with an amazing unanimity. They are obsessed with documenting his bad taste, with finding faults in his stupid
In an extraordinary interview with The New York Times, President Trump was inappropriately critical of Attorney General Jeff Sessions. It was almost an invitation for Sessions to resign. He should not. There are many good people serving in this administration, under difficult circumstances. The circumstances are not difficult because of a foreign threat, economic calamity or effective political opposition, but because of the conduct, temperament and character of the president. Nonetheless, it is vital that the good people who function as the anchors of the Trump administration stay in place and serve for as long as they can. Without them,
A killer named O.J. Simpson goes free again, it was announced at the Lovelock Correctional Center in Carson City, Nev., on Thursday. He goes free, as early as Oct. 1, after having served nine years at Lovelock that had very little to do with armed robbery and almost everything to do with the fact that in Nevada nine years ago Simpson finally ended up in a courtroom where a judge named Jackie Glass did what a jury in Los Angeles did not do in 1995: Put this bum away for the murder of his ex-wife, Nicole Brown Simpson, and a
On Sunday, German Chancellor Angela Merkel said she would not limit the number of refugees coming into the country. “On the issue of an upper limit, my position is clear,” Merkel said. “I won’t accept one.” Setting aside the electoral implications of Merkel’s statement, which defied her party’s long-term coalition partner just two months before federal elections, it perfectly captured the refusal of European leaders to face the migrant crisis head-on—a refusal that in turn epitomizes the slow suicide of European civilization. President Trump’s Warsaw speech earlier this month provoked predictable cries of racism and xenophobia from a mainstream media worried that
Trial by jury is an imperfect system. Sometimes, guilty people go free and innocent people are convicted. In O.J. Simpson’s case, most people believe he was guilty despite the 1995 not-guilty verdict in the murders of his ex-wife Nicole Brown Simpson and her friend Ron Goldman. More than a decade later, in 2008, Simpson was sentenced to 33 years in prison for armed robbery and kidnapping. That sentence has been called excessive and “retribution” for the sentence he didn’t get for the murders. He has served nine of those years and the parole board of Nevada has decided that Simpson
Today the White House touted the accomplishments of the administration in the first six months, and the list included: “Attorney General Jeff Sessions implemented new charging guidelines to end catch-and-release policies.” Of course, the president’s not so focused on that part of Sessions’ record lately. As noted in the Jolt, Trump declared in an interview with the New York Times, “Sessions should have never recused himself, and if he was going to recuse himself, he should have told me before he took the job and I would have picked somebody else.” Tensions between a president and attorney general aren’t new
In a seeming act of defiance toward the Trump administration, a federal judge in San Francisco has refused to reinstate the president’s sanctuary cities order. The bold move to not reinstate President Donald Trump´s executive order -- which sought to slash funding to cities that limit cooperation with federal immigration authorities -- comes amid a battle between the State Department and local governments across the country over the edict from Washington. The U.S. Department of Justice had asked U.S. District Court Judge William Orrick to reverse his own injunction in April against Trump´s executive order. The injunction was issued in response to
Jeb Bush slammed Republicans Saturday for giving President Trump a free pass on Russia — while blasting President Obama for the same thing. “If your opponent does things that … your head explodes on … then when your guy does the same thing, have the same passion to be critical,” the former Florida governor fumed at Ozy Fest, a Central Park festival hosted by the digital news magazine Ozy. Jeb’s jab appeared to be a thinly veiled reference to GOP leadership going easy on Trump for not criticizing Russia for its alleged meddling in U.S. elections. Trump has deflected criticism
South Carolina Sen. Lindsey Graham is urging South Carolinians to vote against him when they disagree with his support for a national amnesty plus a greater inflow of foreign workers to take Americans’ jobs. “To the people who object to this, I don’t want you to vote for me because I cannot serve you well,” he said in a Capitol Hill press conference July 20. He continued: The key here is to be fair to the 11 million [illegal immigrants], starting with the [2 million younger illegals] ‘Dreamers,’ but convince people we’re going to do what our great friend [President] Ronald Reagan
Sarah Huckabee Sanders was promoted to White House press secretary Friday, and it didn’t take long for liberals to attack her appearance and politics. While Sanders is just the third woman to serve as press secretary — following Dee Dee Myers and Dana Perino — some questioned the idea that Sanders’ ascension is a win for feminism. Mediaite published an article shortly after the promotion announcement that accused Sanders of “hurting women.”
While there are doubtless celebrations in Moscow, the news that Sen. John McCain has irreversible brain cancer hit me harder than any such news since I sat in a seventh-grade classroom and our science teacher ran down the hall shouting, “The president’s been shot.” That president, JFK, was a war hero, too, but not one of McCain’s stature. Shot down over North Vietnam, crippled by wounds and tortured, McCain refused early release and remained in his Hanoi prison, suffering for years beside his comrades. Returning home at last, on crutches, he dedicated himself to serving the people of Arizona and the
Authorities in Florida say that a group of teenagers recorded the drowning of a disabled man last week — and did nothing to help as they made fun of his struggles. Jamel Dunn, 32, of Cocoa, drowned in a retention pond July 9. His body was recovered July 14, two days after his fiancee reported him missing. Late last week, a friend of Dunn´s family came across the video on social media and forwarded it to authorities in Brevard County. In the video, which was published by the Florida Today newspaper Thursday, the teens can be heard laughing at Dunn
The outcome of O.J. Simpson’s parole hearing, broadcast live Thursday, was clear from the very beginning, when chairperson Connie Bisbee addressed him not as Inmate #1027820 but as a star. “I’m a little nervous, so bear with me,” she said. It was an odd ceding of power: After all, there’s no law requiring televised parole hearings. But Simpson doesn’t just occupy a singular nexus between celebrity and the criminal justice system; there’s never been a figure like him in American life. Bisbee wasn’t alone in being starstruck. Her colleague, parole board member Adam Engel, wore an NFL tie. When Bisbee mistakenly declared
On June 28th, President Trump convened a roundtable at the White House that included victims of crimes committed by undocumented immigrants. The event was part of the Administration’s push to pass several new immigration bills designed to, in Trump’s words, “close the dangerous loopholes exploited by criminals, gang members, drug dealers, killers, terrorists.” A regular theme of the Trump Administration’s messaging on immigration has been to present undocumented “bad hombres” as an immediate threat to the safety and cohesion of the American family unit. But some of Trump’s immigration policies, in themselves, have endangered families across America. The stories below,
The Republican president has a job approval rating around 40 percent. The GOP has an unfavorability rating around 56 percent. And Republicans trail Democrats by nine points in an average of "generic ballot" polls. McCain´s opponents bridge the political divide following brain cancer diagnosis All of which makes it notable that the Republican National Committee is trouncing the Democratic National Committee when it comes to raising money, especially from small donors.The numbers are striking. In June, the RNC raised $13.5 million to the DNC´s $5.5 million. For 2017 so far, the RNC has raised $75.4 million to the DNC´s $38.2 million.
The last Republican to run against Sen. John McCain (R., Ariz.) called on him to step down "as quickly as possible" following his Wednesday cancer diagnosis. Dr. Kelli Ward is running against Sen. Jeff Flake (R., Ariz.) in the 2018 Republican primary and made her comments about McCain on an Indiana talk radio show Thursday, CNN reports. A surgeon and former state senator, Ward argued that advancing the federal government´s business and President Donald Trump´s agenda gave McCain reason to step aside. "I hope that Senator McCain is going to look long and hard at this, that his family and
A Wisconsin company is about to become the first in the U.S. to offer microchip implants to its employees. Yes, you read that right. Microchip implants. "It´s the next thing that´s inevitably going to happen, and we want to be a part of it," Three Square Market Chief Executive Officer Todd Westby said. (snip) Each chip costs $300 and the company is picking up the tab. They´re implanted between a person´s thumb and forefinger.
Minneapolis police chief Janee Harteau resigned on Friday at the request of the city´s mayor, who said that she and the community had lost confidence in Harteau following the fatal police shooting of an unarmed Australian woman. The death of Sydney native Justine Damond, 40, from a single gunshot wound to the abdomen fired through the open window of a police patrol car, has outraged her family members and the Australian public. Australian Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull has called it "shocking" and "inexplicable." Mayor Betsy Hodges said in a written statement that she and Harteau agreed on Friday that Harteau would step
Deep State leaked top secret information on Friday to The Washington Post in their continued attempt to destroy the Trump administration. The latest leaks prove the Obama administration was spying on the Trump campaign. President Trump tweeted on Barack Obama’s illegal spying on his political opponents in 2016. POTUS Trump tweeted this in March. (Tweet) Since that time we now know that the FBI was investigating the Trump Tower servers during the election. We also know Susan Rice lied at first but then admitted when she got caught that she was unmasking her political opponents phone calls. Rice blamed racism after
