CNN’s Don Lemon Doubles Down on False Claim That White Men are “Biggest Terror Threat in This Country”

Written by Robert Spencer

“The evidence is overwhelming,” insists Lemon. But is it, really? There are several reasons why it is a false claim that “right-wing extremists” are a bigger threat to Americans than Islamic jihad terrorists. “Lemon pointed to a recent Government Accountability Office report that shows that since the 9/11 attacks in 2001, far-right violent extremists have killed 106 people in 62 attacks in the United States, while radical Islamist violent extremists have killed 119 people in 23 attacks.”

But there are several problems with this study:

1.) It only counts fatalities, not people injured.… Continue Reading

Trump Says What Obama Refused to Say

Written by Michael Brown

For eight years, we have watched Islamic terrorist attacks take place around the world and on our own shores, with the bloody, gory death toll rising by the day (roughly 30,000 attacks since 9/11). And for eight years, we have listened carefully as our president addressed these horrific acts, studiously avoiding the words that so needed to be spoken: “Islamic terror” or “radical Islam.”

Instead, President Barack Obama and his surrogates spoke of “extremism” or “terrorism” — without any reference to Islam — or, worse still, of “workplace violence.”

The terrorist attack on a gay nightclub in Orlando on June 12 has sparked the usual knee-jerk reactions from politicians and the liberal media for more gun control legislation, in the mistaken belief that such laws might have prevented the attack as well as future attacks.

One of the biggest lies with regard to the Orlando attack is the type of weapon that was used. The media are pushing the narrative that Omar Mateen had an assault weapon—originally identified as an AR-15 before being correctly identified as a Sig Sauer MCX—and that it is a “military” weapon.… Continue Reading

A 24-hour news cycle rejects objective journalism in favor of cheap entertainment featuring undignified, smash-mouth rhetoric and outrageous melodrama.  Uninformed voters appear on track once again to elect the wrong people for the wrong reasons.

Engaged citizens, desperately in search of unfiltered truth, endure an avalanche of K-Street sound bites and focus-group punch lines.  Many concerned, patriotic Americans prepare to disconnect from the process, utterly disgusted, bewildered and decidedly pessimistic about the path upon which this great nation finds itself driven.… Continue Reading

Terrorists, Like Other Criminals, Defy the Rules

Shadows

Written by Michael Medved

Donald Trump supports the idea that immigration and customs officials should ask any migrants or visitors to our country whether they’re Muslim, and if they are Muslims, they should be denied entry.

Why would this make us safer against potential terrorists?

If an extremist plans to perpetrate violence against America and Americans, he (or she) would certainly be willing to lie about his religious affiliation. As former anti-terror prosecutor Andrew McCarthy makes clear, the only people who’d be hurt by asking Muslims to identify themselves, or to register with the government based on their religious faith, would be law-abiding Muslims.… Continue Reading
