Dangerous Times: Will Shale beat Shari’ah?

London has seen its share of Jihad bombings, and yet — it has allowed radical terror-preaching imams to radicalize thousands of followers at places like the Finsbury Park Mosque.

Part of that reconceptualization would entail making a place for the Kentucky and Virginia resolutions in the pantheon of American charters. The resolutions articulate the fundamental principles of our government in an eloquent yet logical manner; in their import, they rank second only to the Constitution.
