Lawrence Solomon: Trump’s detractors are convinced he’s a buffoon. So why does he keep winning?

President Trump’s detractors consider him a buffoon who can’t get anything done. They do so at their peril. In just five months in office, Trump has racked up a jaw-dropping string of accomplishments. This “buffoon” is buffaloing his critics, most of whom are too blind to see how effectively he’s implementing his agenda.

Trump is delivering in spades on one of his most publicized campaign promises — keeping illegal immigrants out of the United States and deporting the worst of those who made it into the country. Even without building his wall, illegal immigration is down 67 per cent over last year’s levels, mostly on the strength of Trump’s tough talk and tough action.


Sarah Palin Suing New York Times For Defamation

Sarah Palin is suing the New York Times for defamation, according to documents filed on Tuesday obtained by The Daily Caller.

The lawsuit has to do with an editorial the NYT ran on June 14 that falsely smeared Palin as inciting the 2011 shooting of Democratic Rep. Gabby Giffords by a mentally ill man who had been obsessed with Giffords for years. There is no evidence to support the NYT’s implication that Palin played a role in inciting the Giffords shooting.


Has al-Muhajiroun been underestimated?

One of the London Bridge attackers was a follower of the banned al-Muhajiroun network. But has the UK been guilty of not taking the Islamist group seriously enough?

The man in a white robe with the microphone at the front of the hall addressed his audience of al-Muhajiroun supporters. Even with cameras there, he didn’t hold back.

“When Tony Blair came out, George Bush came out at the same time and he said: ‘Are you with us or you’re with the terrorists?’ What did we Muslims say?”

He paused for effect.

“We’re not with you, we’re with the… terrorists.” The audience finished his sentence for him and cries of Allahu Akbar [God is great] echoed around the room.


Free Speech for Zi

Justin Trudeau with Drag Queen Girlfriends

An amendment to the Canadian Human Rights Act regarding transgender pronoun use crosses the line into coerced speech.

Bill C-16, which recently received Royal Assent and will soon become law, is the most recent bill to threaten free speech and to mandate that individuals adopt a social constructionist philosophy of gender. Those who refuse to use gender neutral pronouns such as “they” or “zi” and “zir,” or who oppose the notion that gender is subjectively determined, may find themselves facing the full force of federal law.


Why You Can Expect Increased Violence When The Left Is Out Of Power

Until we begin seeing each other as our flesh and blood neighbors with names and not through the archetypical lenses of media, the political violence will only heighten.

As Jon Ossoff left the stage in defeat for the sixth congressional district runoff race last Tuesday, he said, “Darkness has crept across this planet.” Call it metaphor or call it spiritual, it’s not the scientific secularism the Left claims to represent. In fact, it represents a resurgent spiritual posture with distinct articles of theology. One of the loci theologici of this theology is its initiation sacrament, its baptism of blood if you will: political violence.


Must be Tuesday… Iran’s supreme leader calls for jihad against Israel

The Iranian leader’s remarks come at a time of growing conflicts between the country and the Arab states

Iran’s supreme leader Ayatollah Seyyed Ali Khamenei has said Muslims today are obliged to fight Israel with whatever means they have because Palestine is the foremost issue of the Islamic world.

“According to Islamic jurisprudence, when an enemy takes over Muslim lands, Jihad in any possible form becomes everyone’s duty,” Khamenei told Muslim ambassadors, Iranian officials and the public in Tehran on Monday during a meeting on the occasion of Eid-ul-Fitr, reported Iran’s state-owned news media Press TV.

“Palestine is the number one issue of the Islamic world, but some Islamic countries are acting in such a way as to have the Palestinian case ignored and forgotten.”


A Battle Over Prayer in Schools Tests Canada’s Multiculturalism

MISSISSAUGA, Ontario — The troubles began over sermons.

For nearly two decades, Muslim students in the Peel School District, outside Toronto, had been allowed to pray independently on Fridays, part of a policy in many Canadian provinces to accommodate religious beliefs in public schools.

Last fall, the school board decided to standardize the prayer sessions and offer six preapproved sermons that the children could recite, rather than let them use their own.

Muslim students protested, saying the move violated their right to free speech, and the board reversed itself, allowing the children to write their own sermons.

But the dispute unleashed a storm of protest that continued through this spring.

Brace yourself, this is a New York Times piece.

The school boards and government are equally complicit in this shakedown.

Each student represents money from the province to the school board so they are desperate to keep Muslim kids in public schools and willingly turn a blind eye to Sharia creep. This despicable arrangement keeps the tax payer funded gravy train rolling and the Islamists happy at having their agenda advanced under the guise of “accommodation” and the insidious lie of multiculturalism.

By the way,  you’re a racist if you disagree with this fraud.


Yazidi sex slave unwittingly ATE her one-year-old son after ISIS fanatics COOKED the child and served it with rice

A Yazidi sex slave unwittingly ate her one-year-old son after ISIS fanatics cooked the child and served it with rice after starving her for three days, an Iraqi politician claims.

The starving woman had been kept captive in a cellar for days without food or water before she was tricked by her evil guards, according to MP Vian Dakhill.
