How Terrorism May Help Trump Win

The horrific bombings in Paris and Brussels have given Donald Trump's campaign a boost and further attacks over the next few months might well be the one thing that allows him to overcome his huge negative numbers and actually win in November. That's a terrifying thought, but a sadly realistic one. … [Read more...]

Keyes: Obama Deliberately Fomenting Terrorism Against US

Eloquent extremist Alan Keyes is up to his usual hyperbole. In the wake of the bombings in Brussels, he told Newsmax TV that President Obama is deliberately fomenting terrorism against the United States. How? By bringing in a virtual handful of refugees fleeing the terrorists. Wha? … [Read more...]

Cruz Wants to ‘Patrol and Secure’ Muslim Neighborhoods

In response to the horrific attacks in Brussels, the Republican candidates are, of course, using it as an excuse to promote bigotry, xenophobia and greater police power. Ted Cruz says that we should "empower law enforcement to patrol and secure Muslim neighborhoods," among other proposals. … [Read more...]

Trump Vows to Reveal Truth About 9/11

Donald Trump is flirting with the 9/11 truthers and Alex Jones' conspiracy website is taking notice. While campaigning in South Carolina, Trump said that if he's elected president, you'll find out who was really behind 9/11 because he'll have access to the secret truth no one has revealed yet. … [Read more...]

Trump Attended Fundraiser for Irish Terrorist Group

Well isn't this interesting. Video has surfaced of Donald Trump at a fundraising dinner for Sinn Fein, the political wing of the Irish Republican Army, shortly before that group carried out a terrorist attack in London. In fact, he got a standing ovation for his presence there. … [Read more...]

al-Shabbab Uses Trump Video to Recruit

As I'm sure you've heard by now, Muslim jihadist group al-Shabab has begun using Donald Trump's anti-Muslim comments on video to recruit new fighters to their cause. Hillary Clinton famously claimed this was going on a couple weeks ago, but there was no evidence of it then. Now there is. And of course, the wingnuts are blaming Hillary for giving them the idea: … [Read more...]

Trump: Muslims Knew About San Bernardino Shooters, Did Nothing

Another day, another fact-free, hypocritical claim from Donald Trump, who is as disconnected from, or unconcerned with, reality as any political candidate I have ever seen. This time he's claiming, with no evidence whatsoever, that unspecified Muslims in California knew about the San Bernardino shooters and their plans but did nothing to stop them or turn them in. … [Read more...]

On Demanding Muslims Continually Condemn Terrorism

Rana Elmir is the associate director of the ACLU of Michigan and someone I used to talk to frequently when I was with the American Independent News Network. She's also the author of a provocative column in the Washington Post in which she "emphatically refuses" to condemn terrorism by other Muslims and explains exactly why. I don't agree with everything in the piece, but she makes some very good points. … [Read more...]

Guilfoyle: Just Kill the Remaining Gitmo Detainees

Kimberly Guilfoyle, one of the more braindead of the Fox News hosts (and imagine the competition for that designation), is upset that President Obama is still trying to close down the Guantanamo Bay prison camp and she has a solution: Just kill all of the remaining detainees and shut it down. Because they're not entitled to human rights or anything anyway. … [Read more...]

Why Ground Troops Against ISIS is a Bad Idea

In his address to the nation Sunday night, President Obama argued that we should not send ground troops back into Iraq or into Syria because that's exactly what ISIS wants us to do and it will only help them in recruiting. And he's right. Rukmini Callimachi, a New York Times reporter who has been embedded with nearly every group fighting against ISIS and interviewed many ISIS supporters, did a long series of tweets on the subject that are really informative. … [Read more...]

The NRA and Obama Derangement Syndrome

Last week, Senate Republicans blocked a bill that would have prohibited those on the terrorist no-fly watch list from buying guns. Only one single Republican voted the other way, Sen. Mark Kirk of Illinois. Republican presidential candidates Marco Rubio and Ted Cruz supported the blocking of the bill, which President Obama has urged them to pass. The NRA, of course, opposes the bill. And the arguments being made are absurd. … [Read more...]

Erik Rush: Obama, Genocide, Environmentalism….*snore*

Erik Rush, the brain-addled wingnut who thinks America suffers from an excess of "negrophilia" (he's black, by the way, making that all the weirder) and that Obama tried to drop nuclear weapons on Charleston, South Carolina, has his usual stream-of-consciousness screed at the Worldnetdaily. Something something Obama, something something global warming, something something genocide....whatever. … [Read more...]
