Stars and Stripes Oped: Stars are in the new SOCOM leader’s DNA

January 15th, 2016

Jan. 2 was a day of mixed emotions for me. Entering the U.S. Naval Academy grounds in Annapolis, Md., my visit had a twofold purpose — one bringing sadness; the other, joy. Sixteen years earlier, on Jan. 2, 2000, my father died. A Class of 1943 Naval Academy graduate who graduated in 1942 due to

Four days after the November 13 Paris attacks, Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump said the U.S. will have “absolutely no choice” but to close down mosques where “some bad things are happening.” He suggested people need to—and are finally starting to—understand this.

Breitbart Oped: Christ Hidden in Our Schools, While Muhammad Roams the Halls Freely

This mantra justifies the attacks while claiming the real victims are not those killed and wounded but, rather, Islam’s followers suffering the West’s Islamophobic wrath. This
