Ted Cruz’ Odd Definition of Success

In defending his demand that law enforcement "patrol and secure Muslim neighborhoods," Ted Cruz is pointing to the NYPD's Muslim surveillance program, which was ended in 2014 and the subject of a settled lawsuit between the ACLU and the city.

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.

Keyes: Obama Deliberately Fomenting Terrorism Against US

Eloquent extremist Alan Keyes is up to his usual hyperbole.

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.

On Demanding Muslims Continually Condemn Terrorism
