“Do the two new [Muslim] congresswomen believe that Islam needs to be reformed to more closely reflect the values of the country that they now represent in Congress? The generally accepted values of modern America stress a wide range of freedoms involving tolerance, speech, sexuality, and lifestyles, as well as equal rights for women and minorities and a long list of others. But much, if not all of this, is contrary to Islamic law.”
Such as wife-beating, homosexual-killing, clitoris-cutting, BDS-backing, Jew- and Christian-hating, etc. The mediacrats will never ask these questions. Nor will these women likely ever answer them. Why, that would be Islamophobic.

The Fake News would have us believe that Trump’s pullout was not principled, a long-overdue battle with the permanent war. No, it was only a whim made after a phone conversation with the Turkish dictator. Their usual drama bullshit.
“The claim by Trump advisors that they were taken by surprise was indeed disingenuous. What happened last week was that Trump followed up on the clear policy he had laid down in April….
“Trump is now well aware that it is virtually impossible to carry out the foreign policy that he wants without advisors who are committed to the same objective…he must find people who have remained outside the system during the permanent war years while being highly critical of its whole ideology and culture…[then] the last two years of this term in office could decisively clip the wings of the bureaucrats and generals who have created the permanent war state we find ourselves in today.”

“…the steps of the main church of the Russian Armed Forces,… will be cast from Wehrmacht trophy equipment, said Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu at a meeting of the public council of the Russian Defense Ministry on Monday.”
Hmm. Maybe we should incorporate the bones of some deceased jihadis in the steps of our multitudinous armed forces base/fort/post chapels?

“Victims [as young as 11 years] were plied with drink and drugs and then ‘used and abused at will'” in a seven-year “campaign of rape and abuse” between 2004 and 2011.
“At Leeds Crown Court, the ringleader, Amere Singh Dhaliwal, 35, was jailed for life with a minimum of 18 years.” A minimum is not life.
His nineteen cronies “were jailed for between five and 18 years but the court heard many perpetrators have never been identified.”
“During the trials, the court heard girls would be driven up to remote moorland late at night and abandoned if they refused the men’s sexual demands.
“A sheep farmer told the BBC how he found distressed girls on the doorstep of his isolated home on a number of occasions.”
“I want to shame the successive governments from both right and left who covered up the industrialised rape of our children. I want to shame every single person whose job it was to protect our children. And who failed.”

At the Hamas account. Victims of this celebrated terrorist. Disgraceful, Twitter, simply disgraceful. While you ban conservatives for simply criticizing Muslims.
Should be a doozy, if classics professor Victor Davis Hanson is right.
He says history, the teaching of which began with the ancient Greeks and Romans, used to be about war. Because war was so prevalent in human history. And the idea was to try to figure out why war occurred so often and try to stop or at least slow down its reoccurrance.
Nowadays, he says, there are “four recognized military history programs [in academia] where you can get a major and there are 230, at last count, peace studies programs.” Yet studying peace has never stopped war.
Only armed deterrence, alliances and balance of power has a chance to stop it and keep the peace, he says. Or when it starts, to defeat the enemy as soon as possible. “These are the essentials of Western military history and they’ve absolutely disappeared from the modern curriculum.”
