Winning Afghanistan: Support Trump’s Strategy

Winning Afghanistan: Support Trump’s Strategy

  President Trump is pledging to “win” in Afghanistan by defeating the terrorist “losers.” He is correct about the disaster ahead if the U.S. retreats from Afghanistan, but his speech doesn’t seem to have addressed the concerns of those who believe that the campaign there is a lost cause. Trump rightly pointed out that there are 20 groups designated as Foreign Terrorist Organizations by the U.S. State Department operating in Afghanistan and Pakistan. If the U.S. abandons Afghanistan, these groups will use the country as a launching pad to target the U.S. and destabilize the region, including nuclear-armed Pakistan. From…

Who Will Replace ISIS’ Caliph When He Goes to Hell?

Who Will Replace ISIS’ Caliph When He Goes to Hell?

The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, a source that Western media outlets regularly rely upon, claims it has “confirmed” the death of ISIS Caliph Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi. Whether the report ends up being true or not, it begs the question of what names are being suggested as his likeliest replacement. The organization indicates it has at least three sources inside ISIS confirming Baghdadi’s death, including a “first-line commander” and at least two second-ranking commanders in the Deir Ezzor area of Syria. The sources said that Baghdadi was hiding in Deir Ezzor as recently as three months ago. An Iraqi news…

Secretary of Homeland Security Thanks CAIR

Secretary of Homeland Security Thanks CAIR

The Department of Homeland Security is continuing to use the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) as an outreach partner, despite the Justice Department identifying it as a Muslim Brotherhood entity and designating it as an unindicted co-conspirator in the largest terrorism-financing trial in American history. CAIR’s Florida branch has published a letter from the DHS Office for Civil Rights and Civil Liberties thanking it for its years of collaboration. The author says it was written at the request of the Secretary of Homeland Security, General John Kelly. It is dated May 5 and can be seen at Pamela Geller's website.…

Hezbollah Terrorists Caught in US Planning Attack

Hezbollah Terrorists Caught in US Planning Attack

The pace of jihadist activity has been so intense lately that an incredibly important story has been barely reported on: Two terrorists belonging to Hezbollah, a puppet of the Iranian and Syrian regimes, have been arrested for planning attacks in the U.S., with one scouting potential targets in New York including JFK International Airport. Both are citizens who entered, exited and re-entered the U.S. Although the Iranian and Syrian regimes regularly organize terrorist attacks through its Hezbollah proxy, the plotting of attacks on U.S. soil and on Americans overseas is very significant, but not unprecedented. The two arrested terrorists are…

Support for Muslim Brotherhood Terror Designation Bill Grows

Support for Muslim Brotherhood Terror Designation Bill Grows

The Muslim Brotherhood Terrorist Designation Act now has about 60 members of Congress supporting it. Although support is growing, the number of cosponsors is far less than what it was for the last version of the bill. Voters must remind members of Congress who supported the previous bill to cosponsor the new bills (HR377 and S68). Information on who is currently supporting the legislation is at the bottom of this article. Earlier this year, it was reported that the Trump Administration was about to designate the Muslim Brotherhood as a Foreign Terrorist Organization. The Brotherhood and its apologists went into…

New DNC Chair Perez Engaged Islamists, Ignored Reformers

New DNC Chair Perez Engaged Islamists, Ignored Reformers

Tom Perez has defeated Rep. Keith Ellison in the race to become chairman of the Democratic National Committee, but don’t rest easy: Perez also has a concerning record and chose Ellison as his deputy chairman. When he was the assistant attorney general of the Justice Department’s Civil Rights Division, he included Muslim Brotherhood-linked groups and their allies in discussions about counter-terrorism training and investigations and laws punishing alleged “hate speech” against the religion of Islam. Muslim and non-Muslim critics of such Islamist groups were not a part of Perez’ outreach on these issues. Andrew McCarthy, a former federal prosecutor responsible…
