"There's a huge difference between what we're capable of doing here in New York, and the resources we have, as compared to the resources of what was [available] in Baltimore.

Newly released book provides the framework to end the scourge of Islamic jihad
One could only wish that President Obama and his so-called national security team, especially his National Security Advisor Susan Rice and his chief confidante Valerie Jarrett, would read a newly released book that more than explains not only how policymakers should discuss the enemy in this war against Islamic extremists but also how the United States, as the most powerful and exceptional nation in the world, should wage war against an enemy that is as cunning as it is fanatical.

Happy New Year message sent by Islamic jihadists: An analysis
While most people in the world bid farewell to 2014 and welcomed 2015, Islamic terrorists sent out their own brand of New Year greetings in the only way they know: killing the innocent and destroying public or private property.

Mexican criminal aliens stealing Puerto Rican identities ignored by media
"This is a case no one wants reported, at least no one who is part of the liberal-left orthodoxy. The fact that American citizens who are legally born Americans are being victimized by having their identities stolen doesn't seem to bother President Barack Obama and the rest of his administration. It certainly doesn't concern the news media who appear to have become the Democratic Party's public relations firm," said an angry Puerto Rican cop-turned-attorney, Maria Garcia-DeJesus.
