The media's dangerous diversions; DHS says right wing extremists bigger threat than Islamic terrorists...More

Since Jan. 1, 'We Have Had More Than 20,000 People Come Across the Border' ..."Already this calendar year, since January 1, we have had more than 20,000 people come across the border, apprehended, unauthorized. And so we have an ongoing problem on the border that Congress must step up and solve."...

Feds send wrong tax info to 800,000 ObamaCare customers  The Obama administration ’fessed up Friday to another monumental ObamaCare blunder, revealing that it sent the wrong tax information to 800,000 customers who signed up on the federal health exchange.

The mistake covered 20 percent of those who enrolled in 37 states and came as especially bad news to 50,000 who have already completed their tax returns.

Those individuals will now have to refile.

The tax returns of the other 750,000 are on hold until they can get corrected data...

ISIS and the Missing Christ ...Whenever I hear someone announce that “All religions are a path to God!” I wonder how it would work if you applied such “tolerance” to, say, medicine or science. “All medicines are a path to health! You take antibiotics, I cut the head off a chicken and dance under the full moon, really what’s the difference as long as we both believe it will make us well?” Or “All science is a path to progress! You invent an iPhone, I invent a weaponized disease, it’s all science, man, it’s all great!”

When you put it this way, it becomes clear that the idea that all religions are equally worthwhile is essentially an atheist creed. To say All religions are a path to God is really saying, No religion is a path to God. There is no God, so what difference does your religion make? When something is true, when it is factual, when it is real, it excludes other options. The world can’t be both flat and round. When you accept the roundness of it, you can no longer entertain its flatness. It’s one or the other.

If God is the Christian God of love, he is not the Allah of Isis...

ISIS releases chilling video showing children as young as FIVE being trained for battle  Islamic State have released a slickly-edited propaganda video showing boys as young as five being indoctrinated at a military-style training camp for 'cubs'...

The Rise of the Child Terrorist   ...The exploitation of children by terrorist groups is not new, but groups such as ISIS, Boko Haram, and the Pakistani Taliban are increasingly using children to carry out their activities. The move is strategic as it is shocking. It provides heightened media attention and allows terrorist groups to groom more loyal members. Children are easier to indoctrinate and less likely to resist, since they do not yet fully understand their own mortality. Moreover, because children appear less suspicious, using them often leads to more successful missions. On the other hand, the use of children may also indicate that the group is having difficulty in recruiting adults—the fact that Boko Haram has kidnapped children to use them as suicide bombers may be an indication of the group’s weakness, not its strength...

Of Course: DHS Report Warns of ‘Domestic Right-Wing Terror Threat’ ahead of foreign Islamists  ... A survey last year of state and local law enforcement officers listed sovereign citizen terrorists, ahead of foreign Islamists, and domestic militia groups as the top domestic terror threat...

The media's dangerous diversions
...It seems as though the last 22 months of the Obama presidency will be spent studiously ignoring the worldwide collapse in American power and prestige and the concurrent escalation in the threat to our allies and ourselves. The steep decline in our defense spending as a percentage of our GDP, the slashing of our Navy and downsizing of our Army and Marine Corps, and the almost volcanic incoherence from official spokespeople spread across the executive branch is without precedent.

Some world powers collapse. Others are eclipsed slowly or with a steady march into the shadows of history. Our roll down the hill of greatness may be the first to have been treated so frivolously as to avoid even sustained comment because pop culture was so much more diverting.
