Why the Hell is The Washington Post Conflating the Las Vegas Massacre and ISIS?
Was this really necessary?
Was this really necessary?
President Trump is shirking responsibility and the military has no answers about the war in Afghanistan. After over a decade and a half of war, this is unacceptable.
It's The Daily Banter vs. The Daily Banter on the question of whether Islam is a violent faith.
Whatever you may think of US foreign policy, this incredibly moving footage of Syrians celebrating their freedom from ISIS in the city of Manbij is a testament to some of the good the coalition forces are doing.
Generally speaking, most critics of Islam, on the left, at least, are critics of religion across-the-board, and seldom do we find those critics defending radical Christians except as a means of drawing the obvious contrast: Christian theocracy in the modern world doesn't impose the same oppression and capital punishment on its people as Sharia law happens to impose. That's not to say Christianity is comparatively innocent of crimes against humanity -- it's not. It's just less horrendous than Islamic law.
We're supposed to declare war on ISIS and enlist all of NATO in the effort, yet ISIS suspects should have unfettered access to American-made-and-sold firearms? In what universe does this make a lick of sense?
Well that was quick. After Obama bravely confronted the insane gun culture in America and showed raw emotion over the thousands of lives lost to gun violence in America, Sarah Palin has waded into the debate Hockey Mom style with the finesse of a drunken ballerina.
Wow, who knew ISIS wasn't a traditional nation-state? Let's call the whole thing off.
You wouldn't know it to watch our news media, but President Obama actually did say the thing Republicans are insisting he didn't say.
These people have just awful memories.
Perhaps an American ground intervention in Iraq and Syria could have worked had America not created the catastrophe in the first place -- but it did, so going back in guns blazing isn't exactly the greatest idea.
The prospect of a terroristic attack on US citizens is frightening to think about, but impossible to ignore. It is in the darkest time that we look to our leaders to guide and direct us forward. If America is attacked, President Obama will be called upon to lead. History hopes he is ready to steer the country forward and away from the mistakes of the past.
This isn't a real plan, it's a naked appeal to Islamophobia.
Sometimes you get the feeling Sarah Palin really can see Russia from her house, through some steamed-up binoculars.
This is why presidents are careful about their language.
This was a thing of absolute beauty.
Put it this way: We often see terrorist attacks in certain places, but last Friday we saw a terrorist attack on Paris.
Almost immediately after the attacks, social media was set ablaze with messages of support for France -- small acts of kindness that don't affect much but are not doubt welcome in the wake of such appalling violence. But of course, merely minutes after the facts emerged about the attacks, activists with pet agendas began to emerge and began spreading their own politicized message through social media.
In another gnawingly irritating screed against Obama for his fictional transgressions against 'real Americans' (white people), Palin has outdone herself with a wonderful mixture of sexual innuendo, racism and violent rage.
Here's a surprise: Fox News is completely full of shit.
We salute your dildo blindness, CNN. But at the same time, it's more than a little distressing that, yes, here we are again, with a major news outlet reporting a story before it's been properly vetted for accuracy.
In a shining example of Groundhog Day journalism, some in the media took another opportunity to mislead the public about President Obama's remarks on ISIS strategy. Fool me once...
Someone really needs to let everyone at Fox News know that hostages were beheaded on video during the Bush administration.
Remember when ISIS was the terrifying Islamic Godzilla that was going to kill us all? Now that they're fleeing Tikrit like photosensitive cockroaches, you hardly ever hear about them anymore.
It might seem like Hillary Clinton's emails are the biggest story in the world right now, but prior to this week, there was an even greater threat to humanity than a MacGyvered-up Hotmail account, and it was called ISIS.
Republicans are supposed to be against government dependency, aren't they? Leave it to a war to bring out the nanny in them.
The FBI says it has known the identity of the ISIS spokesmurderer for months, but now that ex-Londoner Mohammed Emwazi has been identified publicly as "Jihadi John," can Hellfire be far behind?
Obama has spent a lot of time in public rhetoric systematically detaching Islam from terrorism. The President may be provably wrong, but there's a good reason to support him on this.
Muslim American standup comic Dean Obeidallah was at the White House Summit on Countering Violent Extremism Wednesday, and spoke exclusively with The Daily Banter's White house correspondent, Tommy Christopher.
Here's the week that was at The Daily Banter.
They're not going to say "Beetlejuice" three times, either.
What happens when you invade the wrong country for the wrong reasons, fail to stop a civil war by refusing to rebuild it properly, then start bombing neighboring countries? If your answer is: "A complete and utter nightmare," you'd be right.
We get it, guys, you love America and have dicks. Can you let the President work now?
War-weary Americans seeking comfort in the President's new Authorization for the Use of Military Force against ISIS will just have to keep trusting him on it.
Especially now that Kayla Mueller is confirmed to have been killed, we must treat ISiS' claims about her death as the lies they are, and not the yardstick against which we measure the truth.
Literally everyone has thrown President Obama overboard because he said something he has been saying constantly, but he said it at a prayer breakfast.
Greenwald said that because of the U.S.'s history of war-time actions, we have no right to condemn our enemies when they summarily execute journalists and prisoners-of-war.
The White House can't explicitly endorse Jordan's revenge executions, but they're clearly good with it, and why wouldn't they be?
No true Muslim would burn a person to death.
The Obama administration took pains to draw distinctions between their prisoner swap for Bowe Bergdahl and Jordan's attempt to get its captured pilot back from ISIS, but if ISIS captures an American pilot, will we really refuse to deal?
If President Obama had let him die in Afghanistan, conservatives would be worshiping Bergdahl like they do American Sniper Chris Kyle.
Mitt Romney and friends have been fantasizing about what life would have been like under President Romney, but they keep forgetting how he wouled have let bin Laden live, and Detroit die.
They took over Twitter and YouTube and posted ominous messages.
As John Kerry and Barack Obama struggle to get a nuclear pact with Iran, and Obama reviews hostage procedures, it's worth remembering a president who knew how to get a deal done.
Some conservative blogs have taken to criticizing President Obama for referring to slain American aid worker Peter Edward Kassig by the Muslim name he adopted while in captivity, Abdul-Rahman Kassig.
Yes, it has come to this: We are now getting parenting advice from terrorism analysts.
