GOP Presidential candidate Donald Trump called out President Barack Obama for his refusal to say "Islamic terrorism" in reference to the shooting Thursday in Chattanooga, Tennessee, which left four people dead. Trump suggested that given the security concerns that America is facing, the time for political correctness is over.
"It's going to get worse in our country and we better start fighting a lot tougher than we're fighting right now," Trump told Fox News host Bill O'Reilly in an interview. "If we're going to fight elements that are causing tremendous problems ... at least we have to start maybe being not so politically correct."

Mohammad Youssef Abdulazeez, the 24-year-old gunman who killed four U.S. Marines in an attack on two military sites in Chattanooga on Thursday, has been identified as a naturalized American born in Kuwait. Abdulazeez was also a practicing Muslim who reportedly blogged about Islam. The FBI, which is investigating the attack, has said that so far there they have not established a link with terrorism.
"While it would be premature to speculate on the motives of the shooter at this time, we will conduct a thorough investigation of this tragedy and provide updates as they are available," an FBI official, who wasn't named, told Fox News after the attack.
FBI special agent Ed Reinhold said in a separate statement that "We are looking at every possible avenue, whether it was terrorism — whether it was domestic, international — or whether it was a simple, criminal act." more >>

Republicans in the U.S. House of Representatives are expected to investigate Planned Parenthood following the release of an undercover video showing an employee speaking casually of selling the body parts of aborted fetuses.

The Rev. Franklin Graham, CEO of Samaritan's Purse, said on Wednesday that people who perform abortions have "no conscience." His comment is a response to the undercover video released earlier this week that shows a Planned Parenthood abortionist discussing the sell of fetal organs, such as hearts, lungs, livers, as well as limbs.
"Abortion is a sin and is clearly murder in God's eyes. The people who perform it have no conscience, so I'm not at all surprised that they would be selling organs, tissue, and body parts from babies. Planned Parenthood should be put out of business. They've done enough damage," wrote Graham on Facebook.
Graham also said he believes abortion will bring God's judgement on America. more >>
David Dalieden, project lead for the undercover video that caught a Planned Parenthood abortionist talking about selling aborted babies' body parts, has fired back at the organization's claims that the investigative report was "heavily edited" and "falsely portrays" its "mission."
Eric Fererro, Planned Parenthood's vice president of communications, argued Tuesday that California-based Center for Medical Progress, a group dedicated to monitoring and reporting on medical ethics and advances, is: "A well funded group established for the purpose of damaging Planned Parenthood's mission and services [that] has promoted a heavily edited, secretly recorded videotape that falsely portrays Planned Parenthood's participation in tissue donation programs ..."
In the video titled "Planned Parenthood Uses Partial-Birth Abortions to Sell Baby Parts," Deborah Nucatola, a Planned Parenthood abortionist, said she plans her weekly abortion procuedures with the intent to extract and sell organs. "We've been very good at getting heart, lung, liver ... I'm not gonna crush that part," says Nucatola. "I'm going to basically crush below, I'm not gonna crush above, and I am gonna see if I can get it all intact." more >>
