16 million dollars for this. “But one Al Qaeda-backed group has selected officer recruits while another extremist cell siphoned off cash in a protection racket. It also emerged that a number of employees on the payroll of the Free Syrian Police were either fictitious or dead. And its officers have stood and watched as women […]
Islamic State jihadists, reeling from heavy territorial losses in Syria, have slaughtered “scores of civilians,” including women and children, in the once predominantly Christian town of Qaryatayn. The victims were either shot or beheaded. One town resident described the Islamic State jihadis as “monsters,” which they certainly are. The resident went on: “These are people […]
A man who travelled from Canada to Syria to join the Islamic State terror group and work for its “morality police” has returned to North America, saying “We all do things we regret”. We all do things we regret? Such as eating people, lopping off their heads, slaughtering infidels and apostates, throwing gays headfirst off […]

“The release of these photographs allegedly showing Iran Air’s illegal activity comes as top U.S. air carrier manufacturer Boeing moves forward with a multi-billion dollar deal to sell Iran Air a new modern fleet.” If the Trump administration still has the will to do something about the disastrous Iran nuclear deal, which is by no […]
The Washington Post casts this story as evidence that President Trump is a pawn of the Russians, which is more of the Left’s ridiculous campaign to portray the 2016 election as having been stolen by Vladimir Putin. But this is the right decision. These “rebels” are mostly jihadis; arming and aiding them is arming and […]
Damascus is full of people who believe that others around them are insufficiently Muslim, and thus worthy of being murdered. And Paradise is guaranteed to those who “kill and are killed” for Allah (Qur’an 9:111). “Suicide bomber in Damascus kills at least nine, wounds several,” Reuters, July 2, 2017: At least nine people were killed […]
Christians are being killed en masse and tortured by Islamic State jihadists, and children are being beheaded in front of their parents; raped; and burned to death. Now Syriac Christians have decided to join other forces in a just war against Islamic State mujahideen and make a tough stance of defense against the heinous brutality […]
Where did Syaikhah Izzah Zahrah Al Ansari learn her understanding of Islam, that led her to want to join the Islamic State? Has her mosque been investigated? Why not? “First Singaporean woman suspected of Islamist radicalism detained,” Reuters, June 12, 2017 (thanks to The Religion of Peace): SINGAPORE said on Monday it has detained an […]
At Los Angeles March for Truth on June 3, 2017, Congresswoman Maxine Waters, the Democratic Party’s Representative for the 43rd District of California, once again declares her mission to impeach President Trump because of his supposed collusion with Russia to undermine our elections.
Same old, same old. Yawn.
What is interesting in the video below, however, is Congresswoman Waters’s reaction to the reporter’s question about President Obama’s policy with regard to Russia (about time marker 1:04ff):
The Young Turks reporter asked the congresswoman why she’s been so focused on the Russia controversy. “Russia is not our friend,” Waters said, adding that the country has sought to undermine the United States’s democracy by meddling in the presidential elections. Tracey then used Waters’s own words in asking his second question: If Russia is not a friend of the United States, was it a mistake then for former president Barack Obama to forge military cooperation with Russia in Syria?
“You and I have a different agenda, young man. I’m out to impeach this president. Get that straight. I’m out to impeach the president,” Waters said, her voice raising [sic]. “I’m not going to be diverted by people who are Obama haters.”
In a subsequent MSNBC interview:
Waters dismissed Tracey as a right-wing supporter who’s out to harass and intimidate her….
“They’re going to continue to harass me, but that’s okay. I’m accustomed to being harassed,” Waters said. “I’m not afraid of them. I’m going to continue to speak my mind in the way that I do.”
Reporter Michael Tracey, the reporter in the above video, works for the Young Turks, a video news network popular among progressive voters:
Cenk Uygur, founder of the Young Turks video network that has become virally popular among progressive voters, is launching a project called Justice Democrats to defeat members of the Democratic Party who have cast votes seen as unacceptable.
“The aim in 2018 is to put a significant number of Justice Democrats in the Congress. The aim for 2020 is to more significantly take over the Democratic Party,” Uygur said….
Apparently, the reporter’s pointed questioning of anything Obama-related triggered Congresswoman Maxine Waters.
Maybe it was a white man’s asking an uncomfortable question about the first African-American President’s foreign policy that triggered Congresswoman Waters.
Maybe Trumpophobia has unhinged her. Last month, on the stage of Busboys and Poets, Congresswoman Waters exploded:
“Donald Trump is someone that found his way to the presidency of the United States of America — I still don’t know how,” she said, drawing boos at the mention of the president’s name. “But he’s someone that I’m committed to getting impeached!”
The crowd exploded.
“He’s a liar! He’s a cheat! He’s a con man!” she said, each declaration punctuated by cheers. “We’ve got to stop his ass!
[hat tip to my good friend Silverfiddle for the term Trumpophobia]
At the end of 2011, my organization and our international partners in Europe called upon the United Nations and the international human rights community to act quickly and decisively to save the Christians of Syria, who are being increasingly threatened and victimized by Islamic supremacists. It’s not as if anyone could say that it was […]
