Amir Taheri: The Non-Assimilation Of Muslim Immigrants Aid The Left's Quest To Destroy Traditional Western Values

Islam is actively devouring Europe.     On Tuesday, when Islamist suicide bombers blew themselves up in Brussels, killing 35 innocent people and injuring 240, the European Union’s foreign policy representative, the Italian Federica Mogherini, happened to be on an official visit to Amman, the Jordanian capital. Fighting back tears, she cut short a     ... MORE

U.S. Backed Troops Fighting With Each Other In Syria

by Mike Giglio.   Obama administration nitwittery on display. American proxies are now at war with each other in Syria. Officials with Syrian rebel battalions that receive covert backing from one arm of the U.S. government told BuzzFeed News that they recently began fighting rival rebels supported by another arm of the U.S. government. The   ... MORE

Hail To The Censor! Hillary's Long War On Free Speech

by Matt Welch.         On December 6, after delivering an address about Israeli-American relations at the Brookings Institution's Saban Forum, Democratic presidential frontrunner Hillary Clinton was asked how she would deal simultaneously with the bloody dictatorship of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad and the terrorist menace of ISIS. After spending  ... MORE

Jeannie DeAngelis: Syrian Refugees - 'Trust Not The horse'

UN says 72% of refugees are male.     If one were to ask your everyday educationally challenged American what a Trojan horse is, the answer would probably include at least one reference to an equine-sized condom. Conversely, on the Syrian-Turkish border, where ISIS militants are more interested in world domination than they are safe sex,     ... MORE

WATCH: The Anti-Migrant Video Going Viral Across Europe

by Oliver Lane.   A shocking look at today's reality. ‘With Open Gates: The forced collective suicide of European nations’, a slick, hard-hitting film about the European migrant crisis is going viral in Europe, already watched at least half a million times. Although the 19-minute film may feel like a dispatch from the future, it is cut entirely from   ... MORE

Map Shows Where Syrian Refugees Have Resettled In USA

From Turlock, CA to Kissimmee, FL.      The refugees who have arrived from Syria since 2012 have been placed in 130 towns and cities. They are among the most vulnerable people in the war: single mothers and their children; religious minorities; victims of violence or torture. Some of them have reached large cities like Houston, but most have    ... MORE

Steve Chapman: Putin In Syria - So What?

Vladimir Putin is having a field day in the Middle East.     He has sent Russian planes to bomb rebels in Syria. He has reached an intelligence-sharing agreement with Syria, Iran and Iraq. At the U.N. Monday, he reaffirmed his commitment to Syrian President Bashar al-Assad. He seems determined to fill the regional vacuum     ... MORE

Jacob Sullum: Rand Paul And 10 Heedless Hawks

A desperately needed alternative to mindless militarism. At a Q&A session in Dallas a year ago, Rand Paul expressed skepticism about whether the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria (ISIS) posed "a threat to our national security."   Hours later at another event in Dallas, the Kentucky senator said that if he were president he "would lay out the      ...

Andrew Napolitano: What If Hillary Clinton Doesn't Care?

Contempt for the American people.   What if former U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton has been pulling the wool over our eyes for years? What if, while she was secretary of state, she ran two secret wars, one in Libya and one in Syria? What if there already were wars in each of those countries, so she used those wars as covers for her own?      ... MORE

Andrew Napolitano: Hillary Lies Again

It seems the truth is seldom her friend.    In a column I wrote in early July, based on research by my colleagues and my own analysis of government documents and eyewitness statements, I argued that in 2011 and 2012 then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton waged a secret war on the governments of Libya and Syria, with the approval of President   ...

Rand Paul Calls for a Formal Declaration of War Against ISIS

by Doug Mills.      Senator Rand Paul is calling for a declaration of war against the Islamic State, a move that promises to shake up the debate over the military campaign in Iraq and Syria as President Obama prepares to ask Congress to grant him formal authority to use force. Mr. Paul, a likely presidential candidate who has emerged as one of the    ... MORE

Senator Rand Paul: ‘I Am Not An Isolationist’

The senator clarifies his position.   Some pundits are surprised that I support destroying the Islamic State in Iraq and Greater Syria (ISIS) militarily. They shouldn’t be. I’ve said since I began public life that I am not an isolationist, nor am I an interventionist. I look at the world, and consider war, realistically and constitutionally. I still see war as  ...

Jesse Walker: The Public Turns Against War

Saber rattling doesn't poll well anymore.      After a civilian airline was shot down over Ukraine last week, America's hawks stepped up their calls for a more muscular intervention in the country, with Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) calling the White House "cowardly" because it hasn't armed the government in Kiev. But a new YouGov survey shows  ... MORE

Thomas Sowell: How Foreign Is Our Policy?

Reducing America's power, security and influence.       Many people are lamenting the bad consequences of Barack Obama's foreign policy, and some are questioning his competence. There is much to lament, and much to fear. Multiple setbacks to American interests have been brought on by Obama's policies in Libya, Egypt, Syria,     ... MORE

The Corruptions Of Being The World's Policeman

Matt Welch on the folly of playing international sheriff.    In making the case for a Syrian war to the Senate on September 3, Secretary of State John Kerry made so many bad arguments-including insisting repeatedly that the proposed bombing campaign would in fact not be a war, at least "in the classic sense"-that most viewers probably   ...
