A New World Record

And it’s not a record to be proud of.

At $14 trillion, US debt surges to all-time high

The United States just passed a dubious milestone: Government debt surged to an all-time high, topping $14 trillion – $45,300 for each and everyone in the country.

That means Congress soon will have to lift the legal debt limit to give the nearly maxed-out government an even higher credit limit or dramatically cut spending to stay within the current cap. Either way, a fight is ahead on Capitol Hill, inflamed by the passions of tea party activists and deficit hawks.

It’s Official, Sharia Law Is A Threat To American Democracy

Muslims are trying to subvert America from within under the guise of creeping Sharia law? Tell me something I don’t already know.

America Exposed to ‘Stealth Jihad’ Threat, Security Report Warns

America is “under attack” by a non-violent “stealth jihad,” a panel of national security analysts warned in a new report that claimed fundamentalists are trying to bring Islamic law known as “Shariah” to the United States.

The report, sponsored by the Center for Security Policy and touted by a handful of conservative lawmakers on Capitol Hill Wednesday, said that the violent threat posed by Al Qaeda and other terror groups is outmatched by the threat from jihadists allegedly trying to change American society from within.

“This form of warfare includes multi-layered cultural subversion, the co-opting of senior leaders, influence operations and propaganda and other means of insinuating Shariah into Western societies,” the study said.

The report cited the Muslim Brotherhood as the most influential organization trying to achieve that goal, but expressed concern more about America’s vulnerability than any marquee successes by the so-called “stealth” jihadists.

“Just as we cannot say all Muslims hold a certain view based on the actions of a radical fringe … it would be unwise to discount the malicious intentions of those that wish to subvert American law,” Rep. Trent Franks, R-Ariz., said at a press conference Wednesday.
