    A group of protesters, including some personally affected by the Trump administration’s decision to end TPS for thousands of Haitians allowed into America after the devastating 2010 earthquake, will hit the road to the President’s Mar-a-Lago home Tuesday in an effort for their voices to be heard. The Rally for TPS Extension & Permanent Status will leave Miami Gardens

    Noam Arnon, the Spokesman for the Jewish Community of Hevron, participated in the conference hosted by Arutz Sheva and the Orthodox Jewish Chamber of Commerce held at the King David Hotel in Jerusalem, and came with a message. “We spoke today about the future of Israel, and America, and the whole region. I want to say one thing: Sovereignty is responsibility. A two-state solution is a destruction.” “Sovereignty is responsibility for the people of Israel - and the Arabs. Most of the Arabs, when I talk to them, say that they want Israeli sovereignty. It sounds strange, but if you...

    AIRPOWER UNLEASHED IN AFGHANISTAN: The strategy that took down the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria is now on full display in Afghanistan. U.S. Afghanistan commander Gen. John “Mick” Nicholson says that in the first “significant” use of expanded authorities he is now able to target the source of the Taliban’s power: Its estimated $200 million annual income from opium sales. Under President Barack Obama, U.S. commanders were barred from conducting offensive airstrikes against the Taliban. Airstrikes had to be defensive and conducted in proximity to Afghan forces on the ground. Under President Trump’s new strategy, the U.S. is free...

    The Thanksgiving marathon is starting early for team MOTUS as we’re heading out today for the first of several stops between now and next weekend. So that means it’s officially recipe day!I’ll be making these little gems for the pre-Thanksgiving dinner hour. We’ll be with Raj’s clan for Thanksgiving where the phrase “if everyone’s in charge nobody’s in charge” may have been invented. Dinner is always “planned” for 2:00 pm but never really hits the runway until 6:00 pm or so – and that’s in a good year when whoever signed up for the main event remembers to put the...

    HANOVER, N.H. – Dartmouth College students say three psychology professors facing sexual misconduct allegations created a "hostile academic environment" marked by excessive drinking, favoritism and at times inappropriate behavior. The attorney general's office began a criminal investigation last month after learning about allegations against psychology professors Todd Heatherton, Paul Whalen and Bill Kelley, all of whom have been put on paid leave and have had their access to campus restricted. Authorities haven't released any details, but 15 undergraduate, graduate and postdoctoral students recently wrote to the school newspaper, The Dartmouth, alleging the three created a hostile environment "in which sexual...

    The previous administration deliberately understated al-Qaeda’s strength in 2012 so President Obama’s worse-than-useless counter-terrorism policy would seem like it was actually working, clearing the way for his easy reelection victory over Republican Mitt Romney, according to new evidence. Intelligence was just one of the many areas of government activity relentlessly politicized by the Obama administration. In the Obama era, the Departments of Defense, Justice, and Education, to name only a few of the affected federal agencies, were also infested with determined radical ideologues bent on fundamentally transforming American society. Many of the left-wing extremists are still in positions of authority...

    In Luke 12:49–57, Jesus told His disciples that He had not come to bring peace, but division. He told them that He was bringing a baptism of fire to the earth, warning the crowd to flee the wrath to come. This was the great moment of crisis in history. It was a time of urgency that swept the earth with the appearance of Jesus. Jesus’ coming to this planet in the fullness of time was a time of division, judgment, and separation. It was a time of personal choosing, when eternal destinies were at stake. Everyone who encountered Jesus had...

    Newsweek compares Charles Manson with Donald Trump in an article all the while insisting it does no such thing. “Manson was able to speak in a way that engaged those who felt marginalized or alienated,” Newsweek’s Melissa Matthews contends in an article titled “How Murderer Charles Manson and Donald Trump Used Language to Gain Followers.” She then quotes a former president of the American Psychoanalytic Association, Mark Smaller, who tells her: “Our current president speaks in an emotional or affective way to large numbers of people in our country who feel a kind of alienation or disconnection from the government.”...

    Originally published by the Jerusalem Post. Is the PLO’s long vacation from accountability coming to an end? How about the State Department’s? In 1987 the US State Department placed the PLO on its list of foreign terrorist organizations. The PLO was removed from the list in 1994, following the initiation of its peace process with Israel in 1993. As part of the Clinton administration’s efforts to conclude a long-term peace deal between the PLO and Israel, in 1994 then president Bill Clinton signed an executive order waiving enforcement of laws that barred the PLO and its front groups from...
  • Could the “Machete” Lightweight Attack plane replace the A-10 Warthog?

    It’s no secret that the U.S. military have plans to replace the A-10 Warthogs in the future. One aircraft that is in the conceptual plan phase is known as the “Machete” designed by Stavatti a Minnesota aerospace start-up company. Stavatti is pushing (fighting for the big budgetcontract) to get their lightweight attack plane idea to the right people. This new lightweight attack aircraft is made from metal foam, this technology is lighter than the A-10’s armor but the material is more efficient at stopping projectiles. There will be two versions of the Machete:-Propeller-driven SM-27-Jet Engine SM-28 Both types are single-seat...

    We’ve also just begun to scratch the surface where Bill Clinton is concerned. The four women who accused Clinton yesterday were all employees of billionaire Ron Burkel, with whom Clinton spent years flying around the world with a gaggle of young women during the early 2000’s. Clinton also made dozens of flights on private jet of convicted pedophile Jeffrey Epstein. One person taking advantage of all this is New York Senator Kirstin Gillebrand, who famously spent several weeks earlier this year acting on polling data that told Democrats that the best way to appeal to Millenials is to curse a...

    Imagine: even the New York Times’ Ross Douthat now thinks that Bill Clinton should have stepped down over the Monica Lewinsky affair. Douthat's mea culpa op-ed in this past weekend’s paper, in which he confesses that he and others may have been wrong to dismiss Bill Clinton’s indefensible behavior, will serve as the official political obituary for Clinton, Inc. Hillary Clinton is done, finished, kaput. Dogged by scandals old and new, out of step politically, her excess baggage has morphed into an entire baggage train, dragging her towards political oblivion. While it is refreshing to consider the landscape unadorned by...

    CBS News boasts of Gayle King having “received numerous awards for her extensive work as a journalist.” Yet this award-winning journalist wants us to believe that she is dumbfounded by the multiple accusations of sexual misconduct against Charlie Rose. Let’s remember: for King, Rose isn’t just some random guy in the news industry. Rose has been King’s co-host of CBS This Morning—someone she literally sat next to and worked very closely with—for going on six years. But on the CBS show this morning, King claimed to be shocked by the Rose revelations: Get the rest of the story and view...

    On Friday, the day after two women accused Sen. Al Franken (D-MN) of harassment, HuffPo published an article titled, “The Framing Of Al Franken By Two Trump Supporters; And The Dems Are Playing Right Along.” The piece is written by David Fagin, a frequent HuffPo contributor. According to Media Equalizer, the story was removed just a few hours later (the archive can be seen here). According to the archive, HuffPo not only called into the question the credibility of both accusers, Fagin also smeared them personally. “I’m sorry. But something is rotten in Denmark. Two Trump supporting, right-wing zealots come...

    The recent round of U.N. climate negotiations ended Friday in Bonn, Germany. While no important decisions were made on climate finance — transfers from wealthy to poor countries to support climate mitigation and adaptation — the question of who pays for global climate gave rise to heated debates. Trump’s decision leaves the United States alone outside the Paris agreement. While U.S. noncooperation shouldn’t deter other countries from pledging climate action, my recent research with Thijs Van de Graaf shows that it threatens industrialized countries’ promises of climate finance for mitigation and adaptation in poorer countries. If the United States refuses...

    On Monday, three McLennan County residents who served on the jury for the first Twin Peaks trial expressed disappointment about not being able to reach a unanimous verdict. Christopher Jacob Carrizal, the president of the Dallas Chapter of the Bandidos, was the first biker to go on trial for the deadly shootout that left nine dead and dozens injured outside the Waco Twin Peaks restaurant in 2015. He was indicted on one count of directing activities of a criminal street gang and two counts of engaging in organized criminal activity. It was the first time J.C. Crow and one man...

    At the time, the medical community was unaware of the existence of germs and didn’t know how infectious diseases were passed on. As a result, cleanliness was not a factor in surgery, leading to gruesome sights and harrowing results. Surgeons — then regarded as low-status workers and often paid less than the men employed to pick lice off hospital beds — didn’t bother cleaning the blood and guts from surgical tables or their instruments between operations. No one in the operating theater wore gloves, and “it was not uncommon to see a medical student with shreds of flesh, gut or...

    Respect the power of the vagina! You will consider us attractive no matter how repulsive, weird, inappropriate tattooed, pierced, rainbow-haired, obese, or otherwise heinous we are! We don’t need to prove ourselves worthy; the mere fact that we have a hairy snatch between our legs (because dog forbid we actually groom – grooming is a sign of patriarchal oppression) makes us worthy!
