The United States has an AVERAGE murder rate and rampage killings are JUST ONE PERCENT of U.S. murders

There are some eye-opening statistics that bear repeating in my recent article about President Obama cynically using the Oct. 1 mass-shooting at Umpqua Community College in Oregon to promote gun control. Say them over and over and over again. And then again a few more times for good measure. Contrary to gun-grabbing hysterics, the United States of America does NOT have a high murder rate. The U.S. has merely an “average” murder rate among the nations of the world. According to the United Nations Office of Drugs and Crime (UNODC), the global average murder rate (PDF file) is 6.2 per 100,000 human … Continue reading The United States has an AVERAGE murder rate and rampage killings are JUST ONE PERCENT of U.S. murders

BuzzFeed and those “fake” quotations used by eeevil Mike Huckabee

BuzzFeed reports that “Republican presidential candidate and former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee’s 1998 book Kids Who Kill is full of spurious quotations from leading American political figures, mostly the country’s founding fathers.” The article continues: A number of the quotations, such as those from Washington and Jefferson, have been routinely debunked by libraries of the past presidents but still regularly find their way into books from conservative figures. Other quotes, debunked by prominent historians, seem to be used for the first time in the book. Kids Who Kill links a mass shooting in Arkansas “to the decline in America’s moral … Continue reading BuzzFeed and those “fake” quotations used by eeevil Mike Huckabee

BREAKING: Hillary is “bitchy”

Well, duh. It was a female focus group member in the early primary voting state of New Hampshire who on MSNBC described Democrat Dowager Hillary Clinton as “bitchy.” The woman, wearing a sticker marked “Shannon,” told moderator Mark Halperin that the “scorned” tone of her Her Majesty can be “off-putting.” “Tell me what it’s like, what are you seeing,” Halperin said. Shannon sighed, saying “You know, when she’s — I don’t want to use the word.” She whispered “bitchy.” Here is the video clip of this honest woman speaking truth to power: Any minute now MSNBC will be filing a copyright infringement … Continue reading BREAKING: Hillary is “bitchy”

Was the Oregon mass shooting an Islamist attempt to assassinate Alek Skarlatos?

My article from the Oct. 6, 2015 issue of American Thinker: Was last week’s massacre at Umpqua Community College in Oregon a failed attempt to assassinate a Christian American hero for thwarting a Muslim terrorist train attack this summer in France? There may simply be a series of unlikely coincidences at play, or there may be circumstantial evidence suggesting that anti-jihadist hero Alek Skarlatos was an intended target of Chris Harper-Mercer, who put several Christians to death in an Umpqua classroom on Thursday, Oct. 1 for being Christian. Read on and decide for yourself if Harper-Mercer may have wanted to … Continue reading Was the Oregon mass shooting an Islamist attempt to assassinate Alek Skarlatos?

A New Global Police To Fight “Violent Extremism” In The U.S.?

My Oct. 6, 2015 article in FrontPageMag: The Obama administration plans to create a global police force that counters “violent extremism” in the United States and elsewhere. The problem is that in Obama-speak “violent extremism” refers not only to jihadists wishing to harm Americans but also to conservatives and Tea Party activists. Just ask all the law-abiding right-of-center nonprofit groups targeted by Lois Lerner’s IRS during the Obama presidency. Ominously, President Obama and U.S. Attorney General Loretta Lynch unveiled the Strong Cities Network last week at the United Nations. America’s chief executive, who speaks in hushed and reverent tones when discussing the … Continue reading A New Global Police To Fight “Violent Extremism” In The U.S.?

Russians Tried To Hack Hillary Five Times

My article from the Oct. 5, 2015 issue of FrontPageMag: Hackers linked to Vladimir Putin’s Russia tried to gain access to Hillary Clinton’s insecure private email account at least five times while the Democrat presidential candidate served as U.S. secretary of state. The disturbing revelation comes months after retired U.S. Army Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn said the chances Clinton’s private email account was hacked were “very high.” At the time the former top Obama administration intelligence official implied Clinton should have been fired as the nation’s top diplomat. “As a military officer, if I said I was doing something for convenience’s sake … Continue reading Russians Tried To Hack Hillary Five Times

Obama: Never Letting A Good Mass Shooting Go To Waste

My article from the Oct. 2, 2015 issue of FrontPageMag: Mere hours after a young, mixed-race religion-hater fatally shot at least nine apparently Christian victims at an Oregon college, President Obama tried to harangue Americans into supporting fresh restrictions on guns, the most severely regulated consumer goods in America. The shooter has been identified as 20-year-old Chris Harper-Mercer. Police say in mid-morning they received reports of a gunman walking around Umpqua Community College (UCC) near Roseburg, Ore. As is the case in all or perhaps nearly all mass shootings at schools, UCC was a gun-free zone. Wearing body armor, the … Continue reading Obama: Never Letting A Good Mass Shooting Go To Waste

The Mushroom Cloud ISIS Has In Store For Us

My article from the Sept. 30, 2015 issue of FrontPageMag: The totalitarian mass murderers of Islamic State are hellbent on acquiring nuclear weapons and using them against their enemies in the West, a reporter who was embedded with the Salafi jihadist fighters in occupied Syria is warning. German journalist Jürgen Todenhöfer, who spent 10 anxious days living in Islamic State-held Raqqa and Deir ez-Zor in Syria with the jihadists, wants the world to know that the terrorist group is deadly serious about unleashing a “nuclear tsunami” on those who oppose its efforts to create an Islamic caliphate. “This is the … Continue reading The Mushroom Cloud ISIS Has In Store For Us

Obama Frees 20th 9/11 Hijacker

My article from the Sept. 28, 2015 issue of FrontPageMag: The Obama administration quietly shipped Osama bin Laden’s bodyguard back to the Wahhabist Kingdom of Saudi Arabia last week despite warnings that the Muslim terrorist remains a serious threat to the United States. The newly released terrorist detainee is Abdul Shalabi, 39, who trained to be the 20th hijacker for the Sept. 11, 2001 terrorist attacks. Shalabi was set free even though military officials deemed him too dangerous to be unleashed on the world and too valuable as an intelligence asset to be released from U.S. custody. Sen. Tom Cotton … Continue reading Obama Frees 20th 9/11 Hijacker

Radical Pope

My article from the Sept. 25, 2015 issue of FrontPageMag: Pope Francis chided Americans yesterday for their supposed intolerance and xenophobia, the same thing President Obama does every day, in his historic address to the U.S. Congress. Although Francis toned down his sometimes in-your-face rhetoric for his congressional speech, it was still a politically tone-deaf lecture on America’s failings, past and present. It bore more than a passing resemblance to the many speeches President Obama has given around the globe apologizing for America’s history and greatness. The pope delivered this address standing on the dais in front of Vice President … Continue reading Radical Pope
