Secure Freedom Minute: Declare War on Shariah

The menacing ruthlessness of the jihadist group that calls itself the Islamic State is prompting some to say the United States should declare war on these increasingly powerful terrorists. Aug 25, 2014 8:57 AM PT

Declare War on Shariah

The National Journal called earlier this week for the United States to “declare war on ISIS.” The magazine is right to argue for a new authorization for the use of military force (AUMF), a legislative vehicle that passes these days for a congressional declaration of war. It is wrong, however, to urge that the existing AUMF, which targets al Qaeda and “associated forces,” be replaced by one that focuses just on the Islamic State (also known as the Islamic State in Iraq and the Sham/Syria, or ISIS, or the Islamic State in the Levant, or ISIL).

Obama's Post-Foley Fraud About Shariah

President Barack Obama found time between golf rounds Thursday to condemn the beheading of American journalist James Foley by the Islamic State (also known as the Islamic State in the Levant or ISIL) and to assure the American people that he was all about protecting them against similar fates.

Obama Wants to 'Power Africa': What About Keeping the Lights On in America?

The Right's Unilateral Disarmers

For several years now, some on the political right have portrayed the U.S. Export-Import Bank (Exim) as an exemplar of inappropriate federal government involvement in activities that should be left to the private sector. Worse, Exim is portrayed as engaging in “crony capitalism” – loosely defined as picking winners and losers on the basis of political connections, and favoring the former with taxpayer largesse.

Founding Father: Richard M. Scaife

On July 4, 1826, two of America’s founding fathers – former Presidents Thomas Jefferson and John Adams – passed away. Their myriad contributions to the character and direction of this country have long survived them. Jul 4, 2014 3:15 PM PT

Putin's New 'Nuclear' Option

The escalating crisis in Ukraine being engineered by Vladimir Putin is taking on the feel of the Guns of August: an inexorable march towards a wider conflict, and perhaps a conflagration. Jul 3, 2014 9:51 AM PT

Milbank Exposed: Media Lapdog Slimes Benghazi Coalition to Protect Obama

I had a ringside seat on Monday as a “mainstream media lapdog” performed for his masters in the Obama administration. What made it a man-bites-dog story, though, is that the Washington Post’s Dana Milbank was so abject in his submission that he was called out for it even by an organ of the left like Politico.

Hillary's Bad Choices

Hillary Clinton has launched a saturation bombing campaign on American audiences as she aggressively promotes her new book – and, in the process, tries to salvage her 2016 presidential campaign before it is even announced. Jun 10, 2014 11:54 AM PT

How Barack Obama Ends Wars

In discussing last week his decision to eliminate essentially all U.S. forces from Afghanistan by the time his term of office ends, Mr. Obama declared: “This is how wars end in the 21st Century – not through signing ceremonies but through decisive blows against our adversaries, transitions to elected governments, security forces who are trained to take the lead and ultimately full responsibility.” Jun 2, 2014 12:56 PM PT

Guess Who's Coming to Dinner?

The International Center for Religion and Diplomacy (ICRD) is a Washington-based non-profit organization that, like many working these portfolios, happens to have worrisome ties to the Muslim Brotherhood. May 27, 2014 4:05 PM PT

Jeh Johnson, Obama's 'Fixer'

Earlier this month, the newly installed Secretary of the Homeland Security Department, Jeh Johnson, met with the father of a man murdered by an illegal alien who was allowed to drive without a license, thanks to the sort of immigration policies favored by Mr. Johnson, President Obama, other Democrats, and a smaller number of Republicans.
