By Daniel Greenfield ~ ISIS has been beaten. It’s been forced out of city after city. Its fighters are dying or have run away. Its resources are exhausted. It’s over.

By Andrew Bolt ~ Peter Hartcher on jihad in the Philippines: What if the butchers of so-called Islamic State set up a branch of their barbarian “caliphate” in South East Asia with the aim of waging their vicious jihad throughout the region?

By Colonel Kenneth Allard (U.S. Army, Ret) ~ On my bookcase sits a small leatherette plaque bearing three words from St. Paul’s letter to the Corinthians: “Love Never Fails.” His words fall easily from the lips of average Christians.

Just Trying To Keep Up

By Tom McLaughlin ~ In regard to my understanding of the world – what is going on and why – the best I can do is maintain a “working hypothesis.” The “what” is easier. The “why” to explain the “what” is more daunting because as new information emerges, I have to modify. My biggest challenge […]

By Daniel Greenfield ~ Trump’s executive order is “going to get Americans killed,” Senator Murphy declared. The Connecticut Democrat was joining a chorus of the clueless warning us that if we don’t let Muslims into America, they’ll join ISIS and kill us. Singing their brains out in the same stupid chorus were Senator McCain and […]

By Andrew Bolt ~ Christmas has become a season not just for giving but for killing, thanks to our suicidal immigration policy here in Australia. This Christmas again.

By Dr. Michael Ledeen ~ At lunch the other day, a smart man asked me how come there hadn’t been terrorism in Italy, even though Islamic State keeps promising to attack the Vatican.

By Caroline Glick ~ Strategic thinking has always been Israel’s Achilles’ heel.

April 5, 2016 by

By Deroy Murdock ~ President Obama resembles the airheaded young lady depicted in Don Henley’s 1984 rock hit. As her surroundings grow increasingly perilous, all she wants to do is dance.

By Dr. Peter Brookes ~ It’s understandable to put a laser-like focus on the horrific bombings in Brussels that resulted in more than 30 deaths and hundreds of injuries to innocents, including Americans, at the hands of Islamic State terrorists.
