Despite praise from U.S. officials about recent airstrikes targeting Islamic militant group ISIS in Syria, a member of the terror group is taunting the U.S.-led coalition by describing the strikes as a failure.
"We've been ready for this for some time," said the Syrian ISIS fighter who spoke with CNN under the pseudonym Abu Talha. "We know that our bases are known because they're tracking us with radars and satellites, so we had backup locations."
Over the past week the U.S.-led coalition has launched strikes against ISIS targets such as mobile oil refineries and vehicles, according to CNN. But the 28-year-old ISIS fighter said those attacks will not stop ISIS. more >>
No one grows up with aspirations of government dependency. Social issues give Conservatives the perfect opportunity to prove they're the big brothers to Americans and not the bullies. Can you imagine what America might look like today if the first Republican president, Abraham Lincoln, had not taken on the social issues of his day, slavery and polygamy?
Imagine being the parents of Sandra Fluke as you observe your child beg for subsidized condoms on national television during the 2012 DNC. How disappointing. No father tells his son "work hard, go to college and get on food stamps as soon as possible." No little girl wearing a princess dress and a blinged out plastic tiara dreams of marrying her prince charming then aborting her firstborn. Leftist are transforming our men into boys, our women into usable goods, and their favorite targets are minorities.
According to BlackGenocide.org, 78 percent of Planned Parenthood clinics are located in minority communities. Who's going to fight against the existential threat that's being perpetrated against my people due to the Left's social policies? Republicans used to be the definitive answer. more >>
President Barack Obama claims that U.S. intelligence agencies underestimated the threat posed to the West by ISIS militants. Meanwhile, the Syrian branch of al-Qaida has threatened to attack the West to avenge airstrikes in Syria and Iraq by the U.S. military.
"I think our head of the intelligence community, Jim Clapper, has acknowledged that they underestimated what had been taking place in Syria," Obama said on CBS' "60 Minutes."
Some in the intelligence community pushed back Monday against Obama's charge that faulty intelligence was to blame for his underestimation of the ISIS threat. An unnamed official told Fox News that Obama was provided options to target senior ISIS officials for 18 months prior to the air strikes, but "every option was denied." more >>
U.S. military personnel are in West Africa assisting with relief efforts to help contain the spread of the Ebola virus, which has now killed over 3,000 people.
"There is no argument the disease is out in front of the response," said Ken Isaacs, vice president of programs and government relations for Christian relief group Samaritan's Purse.
President Obama and other politicians are fond of reminding Americans that Islam is a "religion of peace." Unfortunately, that message is not getting across to the millions of Muslims that adhere to a radical branch of Islam that considers non-believers to be infidels worthy of death. Frank Gaffney of the Center for Security Policy and other experts estimate that 15 percent of the 1.6 billion Muslims worldwide believe in this violent form of Islam. This means there are approximately 240 million Muslims who want to kill Christians, Jews and "moderate" Muslims.
Sadly, these radicals are not confined to the Middle East. They have found a home in the United States of America, even in Moore, Oklahoma. On Thursday, Alton Nolen, who recently converted to Islam, started attacking innocent people at the Vaughan Foods processing plant. Nolen, who had tried to convert others to Islam, had recently been fired from the company.
He turned his anger into murder when he stabbed and beheaded Colleen Hufford, a co-worker, and was in the process of killing Traci Johnson before he was stopped by Mark Vaughan, the company's Chief Operating Officer. Fortunately, Vaughan, a reserve Oklahoma County deputy, shot Nolen before he could kill Johnson and others. According to Moore Police Sergeant Jeremy Lewis, Vaughan is a "hero," because Nolen was "not going to stop." Lewis believes it would "have gotten a lot worse" if not for Vaughan intervening with his firearm. more >>
WASHINGTON — Rev. Franklin Graham, the outspoken son of evangelist Billy Graham, believes the American Church hasn't done enough to act against the persecution of Christians abroad.
Graham, the CEO of Samaritan's Purse and the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association, was a keynote speaker at the Washington, D.C. vigil held outside the White House Thursday evening for imprisoned Iranian-American pastor Saeed Abedini.
"I don't think we're doing enough. No, I don't. There is much more we can do," Graham told The Christian Post regarding the need for American Christians to be more active in the struggle for religious liberty overseas. more >>
