• Terror Plot Against Iranian Dissidents Foiled In Europe

    Terror Plot Against Iranian Dissidents Foiled In Europe

    The regime in Tehran must be growing nervous. European officials disrupted a terrorist plot aimed at a large conference in France for exiled Iranians opposed to the ruling regime.

    An Iranian diplomat was arrested in Germany, along with two others suspected of plotting the bomb attack at the gathering. Three others of Iranian origin were arrested in France. Apparently, as both internal and external pressure mounts against the regime, they are recklessly lashing out against the West.

    The two Belgian nationals, identified only as Amir S. and his wife, Nasimeh N., of Iranian origin, were charged with “attempted terrorist murder and the preparation of a terrorist offence,” according to a statement from the Belgium prosecutor. They were found with approximately 500 grams of a homemade explosive and an ignition mechanism inside their Mercedes. READ MORE...

  • Terror Plot 104 Targets the Fourth of July

    Terror Plot 104 Targets the Fourth of July

    On July 1, the FBI arrested Demetrius Pitts for planning a terrorist attack in Cleveland on the Fourth of July. This plot was the 104th Islamist terror plot or attack against the U.S. homeland since 9/11 and the 91st plot or attack that was homegrown.

    The FBI first became aware of Pitts at the end of 2015 when he sent pro-terrorism Facebook messages to a political commentary show.

    Over the course of the next few years, he continued to post on social media, increasingly threatening violence against the U.S. The FBI began a deeper investigation that revealed his desire to conduct an attack in the U.S. or travel abroad to join a terrorist organization. READ MORE...

  • Democrats Are Using Shallow Arguments to Hold Up the Next Supreme Court Nominee. Here’s Why They Won’t Work.

    Democrats Are Using Shallow Arguments to Hold Up the Next Supreme Court Nominee. Here’s Why They Won’t Work.

    Three signs suggest that Democrats already believe they won’t have the votes to defeat President Donald Trump’s nominee to replace Justice Anthony Kennedy.

    First, Democrats no longer have the filibuster to prevent confirmation votes. They abolished filibusters for all but Supreme Court nominations in 2013 and Republicans took Supreme Court nominations off the filibuster table last year.

    Second, Democratic leaders are saying they will oppose Trump’s nominee even before he announces his choice. READ MORE...

  • Hey, Democrats, The System Doesn’t Need To Be ’Fixed’ Every Time You Lose An Election

    Hey, Democrats, The System Doesn’t Need To Be ’Fixed’ Every Time You Lose An Election

    If you’re under the impression that the system exists merely to facilitate your partisan agenda, it’s not surprising that you also believe it’s “broken” every time things don’t go your way. This is why so many Democrats argue that we should “fix” the Electoral College when they lose a presidential election and “fix” the filibuster when they run the Senate and now “fix” the Supreme Court when they don’t run the Senate.

    During the Obama presidency, liberal pundits groused about the supposed crisis posed by a “dysfunctional” Congress. In political media parlance, “dysfunction” can be roughly translated into “Democrats aren’t able to do as they like.” Congress, as you know, was only “broken” when President Obama wasn’t getting his agenda passed, not when his party was imposing a wholly partisan, unprecedented health-care regime on all Americans.

  • Left-Wing Politicians Wage War on Plastic

    Left-Wing Politicians Wage War on Plastic

    After a ban on non-biodegradable utensils went into effect over the weekend in Seattle, local officials are advising food service businesses to “[s]top using plastic straws and plastic utensils.”

    An ordinance pending before the New York City Council would make that city’s food service businesses the next front line in liberal politicians’ war on plastic straws.

    For the last two months, the New York City Council has deliberated over a bill that would make it a civil offense for any food service provider in the city to offer customers straws or stirrers “made of plastic or any other non-biodegradable material.” If passed, violators could face a fine of $100 for their first peccadillo and steeper fines for repeat offenses.

    We Went to Families Belong Together Protest. Here Are 6 Things We Saw.

    A sea of protesters clad in white from across the nation descended on the White House Saturday to protest President Donald Trump’s immigration policies and the separation of families at the border.

    Later, chants like “No justice, no peace” rang out along Constitution Avenue as protesters, led by a police escort, marched from the White House to the Capitol.

    We visited the rally for The Daily Signal and spoke with some of the protesters to find out what brought them to Washington on a scorchingly hot Saturday. READ MORE...

  • Mexico’s New President Is Not A Threat, But The Collapse Of Mexico Is

    Mexico’s New President Is Not A Threat, But The Collapse Of Mexico Is

    Andrés Manuel López Obrador won the Mexican presidency in a landslide election on Sunday. Obrador—or Amlo, as he’s commonly called—is a left-wing populist of the sort common to Latin America. A former mayor of Mexico City who twice ran for president and lost, in 2006 and 2012, the 64-year-old Obrador, who spent decades as a radical outsider in Mexican politics, now finds himself in the seat of power in a country that’s falling apart.

    During his populist campaign, the silver-haired Obrador railed against the corruption of incumbent President Enrique Peña Nieto and his the conservative Institutional Revolutionary Party (PRI), which Obrador denounced, not without good reason, as a “mafia of power.” Indeed, under Peña Nieto Mexico’s economy has stagnated and crime has spiraled out of control. It’s not a stretch to say the intertwined crises of poverty, corruption, and crime have driven Mexicans in desperation to elect their first leftist president since 1934. READ MORE...
