Prior to Egypt’s presidential elections, Islamists made clear that the electoral process was an obligatory form of "holy war.” Then, any number of Islamic clerics, including influential ones, declared that it was mandatory for Muslims to cheat during elections—if so doing would help Islamist candidates win; that the elections were a form of jihad, and those who die are "martyrs” who will attain the highest levels of paradise. Top Islamic institutions and influential clerics, such as Yusuf al-Qaradawi, issued fatwas decreeing that all Muslims were "obligated” to go and vote for those candidates most likely to implement Sharia law, with threats of hellfire for those failing to do so.

Over the past two years, I've repeatedly documented the threat posed to America' s national security by Venezuela's alliance with Iran. Make no mistake: Iran and Hezbollah have a serious presence in the Western hemisphere. The U.S. is squarely in their crosshairs.

Y’all have probably been wondering where the Baron has been for the past few days. As it happens he wandered off to Europe again, this time for a large gathering in the European Parliament in Brussels, almost five years after the first one back in October 2007.

Race is the arbitrary classification of individuals according to physical traits that presumably have a genetic basis. How many races there are and what characteristics are used to determine racial identity is entirely subjective, since there is no such thing as a "race gene" or a series of genes that define race in the absolute sense. Race is therefore a social construct and not a physical science, even it is grounded in genetics. It is no more meaningful to say that a person is of a certain race than it is to say that they were born in Indiana rather than Illinois.
