Congressman Louie Gohmert (R-TX) appeared on Fox News recently to slam Sen. John McCain for calling a recent SEAL Team raid in Yemen a failure. The raid resulted in the death of a SEAL Team member. Gohmert believes that McCain was wrong to criticize the raid — the first by the Trump Administration — because it demoralizes members of the military.
On January 10, U.S. Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) reintroduced two bills, alongside Congressman Michael McCaul (R-Texas) and Congressman Mario Diaz-Balart (R-Florida) respectively, that will protect Americans from the threat of radical Islamic terror, directing the State Department to hold accountable both the Iranian Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) and the Muslim Brotherhood, two foreign entities that espouse a violent Islamist ideology with a mission of destroying the West. Both bills require a report on whether these organizations meet the criteria to be designated Foreign Terrorist Organizations, and if so, will enable the U.S. to take action that could stifle the funding they receive to promote their terrorist activities.
President Barack Obama reportedly plans to transfer up to 18 more inmates out of Guantanamo Bay before the end of his presidency, Reuters reports.

President Obama is blaming U.S. intelligence agencies for failing to detect the rise of the Islamic State, one of the biggest foreign-policy calamities of his second term.

This is the story of an ugly lie, a dangerous lie that cost the lives of four Americans and only narrowly averted taking the lives of countless others. It is also the story of a well-orchestrated cover-up, aimed at diverting the attention of the media, the voting public, and Congress from the gun-running and secret intelligence operations in Benghazi, operations that went badly awry. This is a story that Hillary Clinton doesn’t want you to read.
Senator Ron Johnson (R-WI) appeared on Fox News recently to discuss Attorney General Loretta Lynch’s insane proposal for how to deal with the slaughter of 49 homosexuals in Orlando. Her solution is to “love” each other and to be in “unity.” Lynch, who won’t utter the words “Islamic terrorist” apparently believes that Muslim killers just need midnight basketball programs, jobs programs or hug therapy.
The most recent Islamic act of war, in which self-professed Islamic State jihadi Omar Mir Seddique Mateen slaughtered 49 people and injured scores of others at a gay nightclub in Orlando, Fla., should be a game changer.
“It’s a long way from Red Oak, Iowa to Washington, D.C., but often I think back to even more distant places I’ve traveled to like Kuwait and Iraq, where I served as a company commander, leading 150 Iowa Army National Guardsmen during Operation Iraqi Freedom 13 years ago.

President Obama’s cavalier attitude toward the Brussels terrorist bombing (a Benghazi bump in the road) – as well as his detachment from and “no-show” at last November’s Paris gathering of 41 world leaders showing their solidarity against the Islamic jihadi terrorist attacks – was an embarrassment for all Americans. His aloofness should not come as
