Scalise Shooter Identified As ‘Democratic Socialist’ Who Wanted To “Destroy Trump”

James Hodgkinson of Belleville, Illinois has been identified as the terrorist responsible for opening fire on a group of Republican Congressmen at a baseball practice earlier today, hitting House Majority Whip Steve Scalise (R-LA), according to a report by NBC News. Hodgkinson was shot by Capitol Police and later died of his injuries. Hodginson is said to have initially approached Rep. Jeff Duncan (R-SC) and Rep. Ron DeSantis (R-FL), asking them whether the group playing baseball were Republicans or Democrats. He then returned to his vehicle, presumably to collect his weapons, before firing at the Republican politicians on the field. Hodgkinson’s Facebook page provides an important insight into his ideological persuasion. It features a profile picture praising democratic socialism, and a cover photo featuring Sen. Bernie Sanders (D-VT). On his wall, he makes clear his endorsement of Sen. Sanders, saying, “I want Bernie to win the White House”, as he “really care about the working class”. He also expresses an admiration of Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA), declaring that he is… Keep Reading

Hypocritical Arab Leaders Tell Trump That Qatar Responsible For ‘Funding Of Radical Ideology’

President Donald Trump has hit back against Qatar for suggesting a coup against him, stating that the Arab leaders he met at last month’s summit in Riyadh universally blamed Qatar for “funding of radical ideology” and “extremism”. Qatar has strong ties with global Islamist networks, particularly the Muslim Brotherhood. On Twitter, he said: “During my recent trip to the Middle East I stated that there can no longer be funding of Radical Ideology. Leaders pointed to Qatar – look!” “So good to see the Saudi Arabia visit with the King and 50 countries already paying off. They said they would take a hard line on funding extremism, and all reference was pointing to Qatar. Perhaps this will be the beginning of the end to the horror of terrorism!”  Keep Reading

Oregon Republicans Consider Using Militia Protection Against Growing Leftist Terror Threat

With ANTIFA leftists normalizing political violence throughout the country, America is no longer safe for conservatives. After a crazed Bernie Sanders fan allegedly murdered two people in a vicious subway attack last week, Oregon Republicans are now considering utilizing the well-regulated militia to ensure their safety. “I am sort of evolving to the point where I think that it is appropriate for Republicans to continue to go out there,” Multnomah County GOP chair James Buchal said to The Guardian. “And if they need to have a security force protecting them, that’s an appropriate thing too.” When asked to elaborate, Buchal did not mince words. He doubled-down and indicated that he certainly meant aligning with militia and militia-affiliated forces moving forward. “Yeah. And there are these people arising, like the Oath Keepers and the Three Percenters,” Buchal said. Buchal is a long-time Republican activist who ran for Oregon attorney general back in 2012. He became interested in the possibility of using militia groups for protection after the annual Avenue of… Keep Reading

We Must Defeat Radical Islam

When radical Islamist 22-year-old Salman Abedi blew himself up at a pop music concert in Manchester, England, killing 22 and wounding 59, he did more than commit a terrorist attack – he once again demonstrated the insidious nature of violent, radical Islam manifested as jihad. The suicide bomber detonated himself at Manchester Arena late Monday as concertgoers streamed out following the end of Ariana Grande’s concert. While ISIS has claimed responsibility for the attack – at least in terms of inspiration, if not direct operational support – what is important is the fact that someone who was born in Britain not only had the desire to carry out an attack that would kill and injure scores of people but would also be willing to give his life in the process.

Explosion At Ariana Grande Concert In UK Kills 22; ISIS Takes Responsibility

At least 22 people, including children, have been confirmed dead and almost 60 others are injured following reports of multiple explosions after an Ariana Grande concert in Manchester in the North of England on Monday Evening. In a tweet, the North West Ambulance Service said it had “taken 59 casualties from the Manchester Arena incident to various hospitals and treated a number of walking wounded on scene.” “We were making our way out and when we were right by the door there was a massive explosion and everybody was screaming,” concert-goer Catherine Macfarlane told Reuters. “It was a huge explosion – you could feel it in your chest. It was chaotic. Everybody was running and screaming and just trying to get out.” While the cause has not been confirmed, terrorism is suspected. Greater Manchester Police and the local NHS trust confirmed they had responded to a “serious incident” at the Manchester Arena, and urged members of the public to stay clear of the area. Britain is currently on its… Keep Reading

Presidents Trump & Putin Discuss Syria: Seeking Common Ground, Cooperation

President Trump spoke with Russian President Vladimir Putin via phone today about potential solutions to the ongoing Syrian Civil War. The world leaders agreed that the time has come for the destructive and brutal conflict to come to a peaceful conclusion. In the official White House readout of the phone call, the conversation was described as a “very good one, and included the discussion of safe, or de-escalation, zones to achieve lasting peace for humanitarian and many other reasons.” Ongoing cooperation between Russia and the United States with regards to the conflict would represent a break from traditional U.S foreign policy. As a candidate Trump shocked the Republican Party’s foreign policy establishment by resolving to work with Putin on the situation, even referring to anti-Russia hawks as “stupid people.” President Trump resolved to send an official U.S Representative to peace talks between the Syrian government and rebels in Kazakhstan occurring May 3-4.

Angela Merkel And How To Destroy Multiculturalism

In the powder keg of nationalism that has become Europe, it’s fair to say that in many ways, multiculturalism has been the spark. The recent outpouring of refugees from the Middle East into Europe, which ensued a wave of crime and terrorist activity, has, at the very least, struck up the debate concerning Europe’s nationalist uprising and the idea of multiculturalism. Time after time, the punditry and blogosphere have been overflown with all the necessary buzzwords such as “nationalism,” “Islamophobia,” “racism,” “terrorism,” and the like, and inevitably the focus has always seemed to shift back to one name: Angela Merkel. Essentially, the German Chancellor has been the spokesperson and prime implementer of multiculturalism throughout Europe, being largely responsible for Germany’s refugee open door policy. In 2015 alone, Germany welcomed just shy of 900,000 refugees and migrants, many coming from conflict-ridden areas of the Middle East. This influx preceded the now infamous New Year’s Eve incidence, in which over 1,200 women were sexually assaulted throughout Germany during New Year’s Eve celebrations.… Keep Reading

Berlin Christmas Market Attack Again Shows Why Gun Control Is Not The Answer To Terrorism

Since the Twin Towers fell and the Pentagon was struck fifteen years ago, the United States has lived in fear of the global terrorist threat. As a result of the rise of militant extremism, former President George W. Bush launched the War on Terrorism to combat this threat. Despite this, terrorism, if anything, has grown worse. Across Europe, and even a few times in the United States, terrorists have struck. As the threat of terrorism remains prominent, how do we tackle this issue? The answer sometimes is hard to find, because the mainstream political discussion gets diverted by focus on the implements of terror and then hijacked by the gun control lobby. After the shooting in San Bernardino, California, many liberal partisans and members of the gun control lobby called for strengthening of gun laws. The problem there was that gun control was already strong in California, thanks to it being a strong Democratic state. Keep Reading

In The Wake Of Orlando: What Gun Laws Actually Make Sense?

The recent shooting in the Orlando, Florida LGBT nightclub was tragic and heartbreaking, not just for the LGBT community, but for anyone in America who felt solidarity and actually gave a damn. But as usual, the afterglow of tragedy was swiftly upheaved and manipulated for political argumentation – never mind the fact that the blood hadn’t even cooled; the suits in Washington felt it necessary to stand on the graves as soapboxes and promulgate yet another anti-gun push. President Obama stated that same day during his press conference what a shame it was that the “type” of gun used in the shooting was so easily, legally accessible. The “type” of gun in this case was an AR-15, which, if one actually knows knows a thing or two about guns other than the fact that they shoot bullets, will be recognized right away as a semi-automatic weapon – the same as a common handgun. But the AR-15 is bigger and scarier-looking, and so the government mouthpieces in the media can count… Keep Reading

Orlando Nightclub Victims Of Radical Islamic Hatred

It is tragic that once again, innocent victims succumb to the violent hatred of homegrown radical Islam. While we are still learning all the facts, it is clear that the gunman not only supported ISIS, but swore allegiance to the terrorist group, and acted as a radical Islamist, as he phoned 911 prior to carrying out his attack that resulted in the death of 50 people and an additional 53 people injured. Omar Mateen, a 29-year-old U.S.-born citizen, has been identified as the suspect in the worst mass shooting in American history that left scores dead and more than 50 others wounded at the Pulse Orlando, a gay nightclub in Orlando, Florida. That he chose to use guns to carry out his violent jihad on a nightclub serves only to illustrate the depth of his hatred – he could easily have used a suicide bomb to cause many more casualties. Blaming guns for the violence not only fails to recognize the nature of the hatred, violence and nihilism inherent in radical… Keep Reading

Moral Relativism And Jihad

The work of Americans of good conscience – who also happen to be adherents of the Muslim faith – people like Asra Q. Nomani, Dr. Zuhdi Jasser, and M.J. Khan is being undermined not only by the bloody violence of radical Islam, but of the failure of Western institutions to recognize and address the threat of jihad. We all know why the barbaric savages entered the Paris offices of Charlie Hebdo and brutally murdered a dozen people in early 2015; why attackers murdered 130 in attacks that included Paris’ Bataclan theatre; why a married jihadi couple in San Bernadino gunned down 14 co-workers: because their hateful, murderous ideology demands that they convert, subjugate or kill people who do not believe as they do, and they profess that their religion motivates, guides and justifies their actions. Those facts are grounded not in race, but in cultural identity and ideology. That is why no amount of navel-gazing will wash away the fact that radical Islamic fundamentalism is the root of not only the Paris… Keep Reading

Beheading Children Beneath The Black Flag

Qur’an, Surah 8:12 – “I will cast terror into the hearts of those who disbelieve. Therefore strike off their heads and strike off every fingertip of them”  Matthew 24:9 – “Then shall they deliver you up to be afflicted, and shall kill you: and ye shall be hated of all nations for my name’s sake.” There is an unambiguous contrast drawn between those two statements of faith. In one, ostensibly fundamentalist words being used by groups like Islamic State (aka ISIS, ISIL) and others to justify and motivate their persecution and butchery of Christians in Iraq and elsewhere. In the other, prescient words of warning to those whose faith would make them targets and victims of fanatical, bloodthirsty hatred. Canon Andrew White, Vicar of the Anglican Church in Baghdad, experienced the horror firsthand when Islamic State descended upon on the Christian town of Qaraqosh. “I’m almost in tears because I’ve just had somebody in my room whose little child was cut in half. I baptized his child in my church in Baghdad. This little boy, they named him after me – he… Keep Reading
