TERROR IN TEXAS: Garland Gunman Elton Simpson Was Muslim Convert

Sunday night’s terrorist attack on the American Freedom Defensive Initiative “Draw Mohammed” event in Texas was apparently committed by an Arizona man who converted to Islam: The father of one of the suspected gunman in the Garland, Texas shooting told ABC News today that his son “made a bad choice.” “We are Americans and we […]

TERROR IN TEXAS: Gunmen Attack @PamelaGeller Event in Garland UPDATED: ISIS Takes Credit? ‘May Allah Accept Us as Mujahideen’

Two gunmen opened fire at a “Draw Mohammed” art context in Texas, and the story is now being updated continually. Pamela Geller remains as courageously outspoken as ever: This is a war.

Ethics in Doxxing?

With all the knowledge in the world just a quick Google search away, many people have somehow managed to seal themselves off inside cocoons of confirmation bias, where they only encounter narratives that fit […]

ISIS in the Ivy League?

When last we checked in on Cornell University, they were being sued for expelling a senior chemistry major whose female friend complained that she was too drunk to consent to their sleepover hookup. Punishing drunk college kids for doing what drunk college kids do may seem rather extreme, but nothing is too extreme for some […]
