Following a series of bomb blasts in Maiduguri, a city in northeast Nigeria, that killed a reported 54 people and injured 143 others, Nigerian militant group Boko Haram released a recording pledging official allegiance to the Islamic State group.

Jon Stewart asked that question on the Daily Show. …Stewart and Daily Show correspondent Trevor Noah reminded everyone that Boko Haram still, unfortunately, exists, and should maybe get at least a fraction of the global reaction the Paris terrorists who attacked Charlie Hebdo got.

Sarah Palin took to the medium she almost exclusively uses to make major pronouncements, to put down using hashtag activism.  That would be the same medium that embraces the hashtag activism–social media. “Diplomacy via Twitter is the lazy, ineffectual, naïve, and insulting way for America’s leaders to deal with major national and international issues,” Palin […]

I don’t even know why I write about this, except that it’s so amusing. Erik Rush says that, while opposing Boko Haram publicly, he supports them privately because of his Islamist agenda. Carried to its logical conclusion, the investigation into the Benghazi attack could topple the Obama administration, and then some. Clinton’s presidential ambitions could […]
