Rudy Was Right

Though blacks are 13 percent of the nation’s population, they account for more than 50 percent of homicide victims. Nationally, blacks are murdered at a rate six times that of whites; in some cities, it’s 22 times the white rate.

In New York City, blacks made up 23 percent of the population in 2013, but suffered 62 percent of the homicides. Whites, at 44 percent of the population, numbered only 7.2 percent of murder victims.

So, truly, Obama was right Sunday: “Minority communities typically are subject to more crime.”

And so, too, was Rudy: “White police officers wouldn’t be there if you weren’t killing each other.”

Don't Tell the Truth in the Obama Administration

Taken as a whole, the original New York Times story paints a pretty damning picture of the White House’s national security policy setting. Mr. Hagel, so long as he was a loyal foot soldier for the President, was okay even if he was on the outside of the White House cool kidz team.

But the moment Hagel spoke up on ISIS, contradicting the White House, it was game over.

In other words, Chuck Hagel was not fired for incompetence. He was fired for telling the truth on ISIS — calling it an “imminent threat to every interest we have,” thereby forcing Barack Obama to deal with a threat he very much would like to ignore.

Obama. Hafel At the End of the Line

The steady stream of stories in recent weeks that suggested Hagel was having a difficult time penetrating the president’s inner circle carried echoes of Robert Gates and Leon Panetta, two past Defense secretaries who went on to write tell-all books critical of the president’s handling of defense policy.

Former Democratic aide Brent Budowsky said Democrats across the Capitol saw Hagel’s ouster as the latest example of “unprecedented” drama created by “too tight and too controlling of an inner circle.”

He noted that not only had each of the president’s previous Defense secretaries voiced concern over his Syria policy, so had former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton.

(That inner circle knows nothing about military matters and knows nothing about fighting a war.)

The 1066 Invasion of England...And the Muslim One

Another writer who has doubts about multiculturalism.

Like Hitler’s militarization— Muslim Patrols are replacing British police, walking the streets harassing non-Muslims shouting, “this is a Muslim area.”

Muslims ignore British civil and criminal laws, enforcing violence against women and children. Child prostitution, rape, forced marriage, abuse, and genital mutilation are all Qur’an sanctioned.

Muslim leaders like Mohammed Shahid Akhtar, Imam of Birmingham’s Central Jamia Masjid Ghamkol Sharif Mosque, argue child marriage must be enforced.

More Ominous Signs for Religious Freedom

“In China, I was disallowed from performing public religious services due to the lack of religious freedom in China. I never imagined that when I returned home to the United States, that I would be forbidden from practicing my religious beliefs as I am called to do, and would be forbidden from helping and serving my faith community.”
