McCarthy, NRO: “When Worlds Collide: Unassimilable Muslim Migrants Crash Europe’s Fantasy Islam”
“What happens when the West’s fantasy Islam collides with the reality of an imported critical mass of unassimilated — and defiantly unassimilable — Muslims?
“Nor is it only Cologne. That was just Ground Zero of the New Year’s Eve rape jihad in Germany. As National Review’s Ian Tuttle notes in an alarming column about the predictable — and, if I may say, predicted — surge of sexual assault in a Europe overrun by “migrants,” the jihad included similar episodes, albeit on a smaller scale, in Stuttgart, Hamburg, and even astride the Brandenburg gate in Berlin.
We are finally learning about the magnitude and harrowing details of the attack after days of Stasi-like information suppression. Chancellor Angela Merkel may not be big on German security, but she is a bulwark when it comes to fantasy Islam.
“First there was no news; then, a few disturbing hints of gropings and robberies by gangs of “Middle Eastern or North African” men. Now, we know it was a mass atrocity — the only remaining question being: How massive?
“Upward of a thousand men, overwhelmingly Muslim, executed a coordinated series of attacks on an obvious target of opportunity: street celebrations in the major cities of a reviled Western state, where they were certain to find throngs of young women and a police presence grossly inadequate to provide security — certainly not against a critical mass of Islamic supremacists.
“The participation of Muslim migrants in the rape jihad is, of course, the fact most desperately suppressed by German officials. Mrs. Merkel earned her “Person of the Year” honors from left-leaning relic Time magazine by rolling out the red carpet for a staggering 1.1 million migrants in 2015 — infuriating the German public and spurring the migrant tsunami now washing over neighboring countries. In this information clampdown, the nightmare of the victimized women turns out to be the chancellor’s good fortune: Police on the scene were so outnumbered and outmaneuvered by the assailants that it was physically impossible for them to get near most of the women being savaged, much less make arrests. Most of the perps will never be identified.

Washington Times: “Multiculturalism reconsidered”
“Waves of migrants force Europe to look again at a brave new idea
“A generation ago the Europeans, who had bled themselves white in war after war, usually in the service of chauvinistic nationalism, decided they could save the day with a new concept called multiculturalism. The concept was vague but expansive, which celebrated ethnic and other cultural differences and sprinkling them with holy water. “Multi-culti” became fashionable.
“Soon Europe’s native minorities were joined by vast new numbers of arrivals from places far from Europe, many from former colonial appendages. By cultivating their differences, rather inviting them to join a melting pot that had worked so well for so long in North America, tolerance and “cultural enrichment” became the norm.
“But there’s a growing realization that maybe “multi-culti” hasn’t worked so well, after all. Prominent Europeans are turning their backs on the idea. Prime Minister David Cameron of the United Kingdom and Chancellor Angela Merkel of Germany have called the scheme, however well meant, into serious question.
“The reasons are clear enough. The idea that new arrivals would inherit a mixture of the old and the new turned out to be non-achievable. Instead, multiculturalism created ghettoes, often impoverished ones. The institutionalized subsidies to the new arrivals created dependence on government handouts rather than self-reliance through integration in the workplace. This in turn produced resentment among the native population — wholly predictable but a revelation to the government wise men — leading to the formation of nationalistic political parties threatening the moderate center. . .”
Byron York, Washington Examiner: “Byron York: Cruz and Trump battle for different evangelical votes”
“The point is, the evangelical vote is not monolithic. And this weekend, within the span of a day, the two leading candidates in the Republican presidential race here in Iowa, Ted Cruz and Donald Trump — virtually neck and neck in the polls — spoke a short distance from each other and showed wildly different approaches to winning Iowa and its evangelicals.
“Cruz’s campaign appeal was suffused with references to God and Jesus and faith. Trump’s not so much — not even at all.
“Start with the locations. On Friday, Cruz chose the Praise Community Church in Mason City as the site of his largest town hall. For his Saturday rally, Trump chose the Surf Ballroom, less than 10 miles away in Clear Lake, famous as the site of Buddy Holly’s last concert before his death in a plane crash in 1959.
“Cruz likes to ask attendees at his events to do three things for him. The first is to commit to caucus for him on Feb. 1. The second is to volunteer for the campaign. And the third is to pray. . .”
James Warren, US News: “Trump Could Win It All”
“A new survey shows a sizable number of Democrats ready to defect from Hillary Clinton to Donald Trump.
“So if Donald Trump proved the political universe wrong and won the Republican presidential nomination, he would be creamed by Hillary Clinton, correct?
“A new survey of likely voters might at least raise momentary dyspepsia for Democrats since it suggests why it wouldn’t be a cakewalk.
“The survey by Washington-based Mercury Analytics is a combination online questionnaire and “dial-test” of Trump’s first big campaign ad among 916 self-proclaimed “likely voters” (this video shows the ad and the dial test results). It took place primarily Wednesday and Thursday and has a margin of error of plus or minus 3.5 percent.
“Nearly 20 percent of likely Democratic voters say they’d cross sides and vote for Trump, while a small number, or 14 percent, of Republicans claim they’d vote for Clinton. When those groups were further broken down, a far higher percentage of the crossover Democrats contend they are “100 percent sure” of switching than the Republicans. . .”
Jonathan Bennett, Daily Caller: “Islam Set to Become the Second-Largest Religion in America by 2040”
“The American Muslim population stands a strong chance of doubling in size by 2050 and becoming the second largest religion by 2040, based on new estimates from the Pew Research Center.
At the moment, Pew believes that there’s approximately 3.3 million Muslims living in the United States. Given the total U.S. population, this means that Muslims currently comprise 1 percent. But by 2050, Pew thinks that Muslims may surge to 8.1 million.
“Part of the reason for that surge is due to Muslim immigration, Pew noted, since about 10 percent of all legal immigrants are Muslim. Another is because Muslim families tend to have far more children than the average, which is the case in Europe, as well.
“Even before that, however, Islam itself is projected to become the second largest religion in the U.S. by 2040, which is a far greater increase than that expected among Jews and Hindus. . .” http://dailycaller.com/2016/01/08/islam-set-to-become-the-second-largest-religion-in-america-by-2040/
Salena Zito, RCP: “The Dems, Not the GOP, in Disarray This Election”
“. . . Data provided to The New York Times by Civis Analytics, a Democrat firm, shows Trump’s support is strongest among self-identified Republicans, a coalition that uniquely follows the migration and settlement patterns of early Scots-Irish Jacksonian Democrats. That places their concentration across the industrial North, through the Rust Belt, down into Appalachia and the Deep South.
“These are Democrats by birth, a legacy of their New Deal-Democrat parents and grandparents, who largely stopped supporting a party that began cutting them loose after winning their support in the 2006 midterm elections.
“That explains the odd choices between Trump and Sanders, or Trump and Clinton: They’re straddling between one party that used to include them and another that now is trying to fit them in.
“Since the 2008 presidential campaign, Democrats have purposefully cut white, traditional-values, working-class, predominantly male voters from their coalition in favor of building an urban- and cosmopolitan-centered coalition of minorities, elites and women.
“That move left discarded voters with nowhere to go except toward the Republican Party, for which they turned out in large numbers in the 2010 and 2014 midterms and gave the GOP historic wins in state legislatures, governors’ offices and Congress. . .”
John Fund, NRO: “Storm Clouds Form: Bob Woodward Compares Hillary Scandal to Watergate”
“Hillary Clinton’s e-mail scandal has been a difficult one for the public to understand and for journalists to explain. But Bob Woodward, the Washington Post reporter who helped uncover Watergate 40 years ago, clarified things a lot on Fox News Sunday today when he said that an e-mail in the most recently released batch shows Hillary trying to “subvert the rules” that she expected others to follow.
“A few days earlier, Joe DiGenova, a well-respected former district attorney for the District of Columbia, told The Laura Ingraham Show that “there is vitriol of an intense amount developing” in the intelligence community and that FBI agents “are already in the process of gearing themselves to basically revolt if [the Justice Department] refuses to bring charges” against either Hillary Clinton or her former State Department staffers.
“It was the State Department’s data dump in the wee hours of January 1 that revealed a particularly eyebrow-raising e-mail from Hillary Clinton: In one note in February 2011, she expressed surprise that a State Department employee was using a private e-mail to conduct State business. She wrote this e-mail, seeming to express dissatisfaction at the employee’s use of private e-mail, on her own private e-mail server — through which she sent all her e-mails while secretary of state. “Four months later, she wrote another e-mail, also released last week, that is now the subject of some controversy. In this note, she expressed impatience that a set of talking points being sent to her was delayed due to trouble with a secure fax. She ordered staffer Jake Sullivan to circumvent the rules: “Turn into nonpaper w no identifying heading and send nonsecure.” The subject of the talking points has been redacted from the e-mail, almost certainly because it involved classified or confidential material.
“The State Department has weakly responded that it has no knowledge “at this time” that the talking points were in the end sent to her. On Face the Nation today, Clinton insisted she never received them and that ‘there’s no there there.’ . . .” http://www.nationalreview.com/article/429526/hillarys-e-mail-scandal-grows-latest-batch-shows-she-broke-rules-again

Justin Finch, CBS Philly: “Cops: Suspect Says He Shot Officer in Name of Islam”
Mayor Kenny blames “criminality” rather than Islam . . .
“Mayor Kenney said, ‘In no way shape or form does anyone in this room believe that Islam or the teaching of Islam has anything to do with what you’ve seen on the screen.’
“Mayor Kenney said of the shooting, ‘It is abhorrent. It is terrible and it does not represent the religion in any way, shape or form or any of its teachings.’”
““Shots fired! I’m shot! I’m bleeding heavily!” Officer Hartnett was heard yelling on police radio.
Police are calling it an “attempted assassination.”
“During a press conference, Commissioner Ross said the gun used in the attack was a stolen police firearm.
“‘It was stolen back in October of 2013. It was reported, and that is one of the things you regret the most when an officer’s gun is stolen, when it is used against one of your own.’
“Commissioner Ross says the suspect has given a full confession, saying he did it in the name of Islam.
“‘According to him, police bend laws that are contrary to the teachings of the Quran.’. . .”
END NOTE . . .
WaPo: “Mr. Cruz is right about ending the ethanol mandate”
“WE CAN think of dozens of good reasons why Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Tex.) should not win the Iowa caucuses. Unfortunately, Mr. Cruz’s opponents seem to care only about bad ones.
“One such is Mr. Cruz’s support for ending Washington’s ethanol mandate, which requires that increasing amounts of biofuel be blended into the national gasoline supply. Mr. Cruz wants to phase out the mandate. Iowa agricultural interests — including a pressure group led by Republican Gov. Terry Branstad’s son — have slammed the senator for supposedly putting Big Oil above Big Corn. Their mobilization includes anti-Cruz commercials, pamphlets and a pro-ethanol trailer following Mr. Cruz from campaign stop to campaign stop. Other candidates, such as Sen. Marco Rubio (R-Fla.), are rushing to claim any Iowa voters who turn away from Mr. Cruz, playing up support from the agriculture lobby.
“In fact, among the only positive things about a Cruz win in Iowa would be the damage such a result would do to the ethanol interests. Since Congress handed them their ethanol mandate a decade ago, every winner of the Iowa caucuses has supported it. Iowa’s favored status as the first-in-the-nation caucus state has made repealing the mandate all but impossible.
“But there is no doubt it should be repealed. Blending more and more ethanol into gasoline will require spending money on infrastructure that is not yet in place and selling more fuel that older and more specialized engines cannot take. It will also raise food prices, according to a 2014 Congressional Budget Office analysis. . .”
