    An Israeli intelligence source has confirmed Iran’s Fordow underground nuclear uranium enrichment facility sustained major damage in a “mega explosion” that occurred last week. Fordow, which contains at least 2,700 centrifuges for uranium enrichment, is located deep beneath a mountain near the Iranian city of Qom. Some 200 workers were trapped inside the facility at the time, according to a report published Monday by The Times, a UK-based newspaper.

    It was from one of America’s female veterans who served in Iraq, delivered with a first hand, been there, done that background. The Marine in question – who for purposes of publication will go by the pseudonym of “Sentry” – had previously submitted this history and opinion as a comment at National Review, but her story was compelling enough that I checked into her background, contacted her and decided to republish it here in its entirety Lastly, this country and our military are NOT prepared to see what the enemy will do to female POWs. The Taliban, AQ, insurgents, jihadis,...

    Kitty Werthmann is a native Austrian who remembers well the Third Reich reign of terror in Europe. Kitty believes America is truly the greatest country in the world. She speaks often on socialism and how Adolf Hitler took power. This is from her 2009 essay: America Truly is the Greatest Country in the World. Don’t Let Freedom Slip Away The Final Steps – Gun Laws: Next came gun registration. People were getting injured by guns. Hitler said that the real way to catch criminals (we still had a few) was by matching serial numbers on guns. Most citizens were law...

    President Barack Obama has claimed that he goes shooting "all the time", while attempting to reassure American gun-owners that he respects their rights to use firearms. Amid conservative anger over Mr Obama's proposals to ban assault weapons as part of a drastic overhaul of US gun control laws, the president said that he was a keen clay-pigeon shooter. Asked in a magazine interview whether he had ever fired a gun, Mr Obama said he did so with guests at the president's rural retreat. "Up at Camp David, we do skeet shooting all the time," he said. "And I have a...

    BOULDER, Colo., Jan. 27 (UPI) -- A grand jury indicted John and Patsy Ramsey in their daughter's death in 1999 but the Boulder, Colo., prosecutor declined to try the case, jurors said. The couple have maintained their innocence after finding their young daughter JonBenet Ramsey slain in the basement of their home on Christmas night 1996. A grand jury convened in the case indicted the couple with a class II felony, child abuse resulting in death. Members of the grand jury and others in the case told the Boulder (Colo.) Daily Camera the panel handed down the criminal indictment, but...

    After publicly hanging two muggers, Iran has released photos of an apparent finger-chopping machine used for punishing criminals. The four images show a convicted robber and adulterer losing a finger before he is sentenced to 99 lashes and three years in prison, according to state media. But he shows no sign of pain during the terrifying ordeal—perhaps because he has been drugged, reports France24.

    Iran has denied media reports of a major explosion at one of its most sensitive uranium enrichment sites, describing them as Western propaganda designed to influence upcoming nuclear negotiations. Reuters has been unable to verify reports since Friday of an explosion early last week at the underground Fordow bunker, near the religious city of Qom, that some Israeli and Western media have said caused significant damage.

    Link on DrudgeReport: If we forget about Carbon, is the biggest sin Air Travel in the United States? Obama and the progressives just ordered pregnant women to be cannon fodder in combat and for GI Jane to be fought over and protected by all the men in the front lines. He ordered gays to be married in the military so they would come back to conservative states and overturn their marriage amendments; ultimately to make the United States a Gay Nation. He is waging a war, through the 'Affordable Care Act' against the church, forcing it to pay for Sterilizations,...

    Hackers claiming to represent the group Anonymous have threatened to release sensitive information about the US Department of Justice over the death of an internet activist. The group appeared to have hacked the website of the US Sentencing Commission and replaced the front page with a statement calling for reform of US prosecution law. The attack appears to be a retaliation for the treatment of internet activist Aaron Swartz, who killed himself on January 11. **SNIP** "We did not restrict ourselves like the FBI to one high-profile compromise. We are far more ambitious, and far more capable. "We have enough...

    Those who work for a living might want to put away shoes, hammers, and other hard objects to keep from throwing them through the computer. A new study shows that on average the government spends $168 per household on various assistance programs, one-fifth more than the median income of $137. As the Republican side of the Senate Budget Committee reported (after all, who else in government is going to do it?), welfare spending per hour per household in poverty is $30.60, which is higher than the $25.03 median income per hour. The Weekly Standard points out that direct welfare payments...

    Following a public policy meeting of African-American leaders, National Urban League president Marc Morial and National Action Network president Al Sharpton called for a new national assault weapons ban, saying the Second Amendment to the U.S. Constitution should be regulated. “Absolutely, I mean if you look at the Second Amendment it was that you would have militia to protect yourself in case the government came and attacked citizens,” he responded. “First of all, if the government were to come to disarm you, you would not be able to use an automatic weapon to defend yourself. Let’s be serious. We’re in...

    There are few certainties in American politics. But you can write it down: If Hillary Clinton wants to be the next nominee of the Democratic Party to be president, the job is hers. Joe Biden, Andrew Cuomo, Mark Warner, Martin O'Malley and the others in the long list of commander-in-chief wannabes will go about their day jobs for the next couple years, but at the back of their minds will be only one question: Will she or won't she? Because, as the most popular politician in America -- who also happens to be married to America's most popular ex-president and...

    Israelis portrayed on CBS's long running series NCIS -- the Israelis who are not "Americanized," anyway -- are becoming become more and more sinister. Since NCIS is one of the top-rated television programs in America, anyone concerned about Middle East policy, let alone fairness to the State of Israel, ought to be aware of how Israelis are being treated on this show.Ziva David (Cote de Pablo), former Mossad agent working with NCIS (Naval Criminal Investigative Service) has turned American citizen and NCIS agent, largely out of rebellion against her Israeli father, Eli David (Michael Nouri), the head of Mossad.
