Ramadan's Night of Power Has Law Enforcement On High Alert:
(Fox) - Law enforcement officials around the world are on high alert this week as ISIS calls for a surge of civilian attacks during Islam’s “Night of Power,” the holiest day on the Islamic calendar, which this year begins Wednesday evening.
“ISIS and other Islamists preach that the obligation of jihad is multiplied during Ramadan, as is the reward if you die carrying it out,” Ryan Mauro, national security analyst at the Clarion Project.
(News.com.au) - Deakin University counter-terrorism expert Greg Barton told news.com.au that the risk of terror attacks being carried out “on mosques ... or large sporting events where there are lots of people” was increased during Ramadan, particularly on the “Night of Power”.
“Because this ‘Night of Power’ is the pinnacle of Ramadan, the perverted mentality of extremists says Ramadan is a good time to attack (...) and they would choose that day if they could,” Mr Barton said.
(Gallup Polls) - 38% of Americans less willing to attend large events due to terrorism
Previous high was 32% in 2002
46% less willing to travel overseas due to terrorism concerns
Glass Ceiling Shattered In Georgia Election:
Everyone was getting ready to hail the "Trump Slayer" Jon Ossoff (D-GA), but the people of Georgia renewed their anti-liberal fervor, electing Republican Karen Handel to office yesterday.
Speculations have arisen from Media pundits such as Rachel Maddow that RAIN kept Democrats from the polls (because we all know that rain only falls on Democrats, not Republicans).
Another notable fact about the election in Georgia is just how much money was spent, making it the most expensive campaign for the House ever. The Democrats spent over $30 Million on this race and still LOST!
So, with this YUGE victory for Karen Handel, she is clearly going to be lauded for her status as an opressed woman right?
Wrong. Check out the faces on these CNN anchors:
Donald Trump Jr. summed it up nicely on Twitter today:
Karen Handel becomes 1st Woman Rep GA has sent to Congress. Still waiting for the glass ceiling stories, or do conservatives not get them?
Camille Paglia, Professor of Humanities & Media Studies at University of the Arts in Philadelphia, took to the radio waves earlier this week to condemn the Democrat-Media Complex for what they have done to journalism during the past election season.
She said "It’s obscene, it’s outrageous, OK? It shows that the Democrats are nothing now but words and fantasy and hallucination and Hollywood. There’s no journalism left. What’s happened to The New York Times? What’s happened to the major networks? It’s an outrage.”
She continued "I’m a professor of media studies, in addition to a professor of humanities, OK? And I think it’s absolutely grotesque the way my party has destroyed journalism. Right now, it is going to take decades to recover from this atrocity that’s going on where the news media have turned themselves over to the most childish fraternity, kind of buffoonish behavior.”
While I think she is at least trying to be honest about the issue with journalism in our country, I think that she has made a fundamental error in her analysis. Camille thinks that the Democrats are leading and infiltrating the liberal media. I don't think that's a correct assesment. I think it's the media who are running the Democrats, and have been edging in to their party more and more ever since the 1960's.
The media chooses the talking points, the media galvanizes opinion, the media has more money than God, and the media has been used to overthrow governments before. The Democrats are the media's lackeys, weather they know it or not. Remember, it was possible at one time to be a conservative Democrat, but it was never a possiblity to be a conservative liberal...
Donald Trump Addresses Massive Crowd In Iowa:
Ron Paul - United States Should Not Be Involved With Syria:
"We should mind our own business; we shouldn’t be over there, when we go over there and decide that we are going to take over, it is an act of aggression, and I am positively opposed to that. And I think most Americans are too if they get all the information they need."
