    Talk of ‘Preventive War’ Rises in White House Over North Korea By DAVID E. SANGER AUG. 20, 2017 Not since 2002, as the United States built a case for war in Iraq, has there been so much debate inside the White House about the merits — and the enormous risks — of pre-emptive military action against an adversary nation. Like its predecessors, the Trump administration is trying to pressure North Korea through sanctions to dismantle its nuclear program. But both President Trump and his national security adviser, Lt. Gen. H. R. McMaster, have talked openly about a last-resort option if...

    A number of prominent national security experts are asking the U.S. Supreme Court to put “in their proper place” the lower court judges who have ruled against President Trump’s plans to temporarily restrict entrants to the United States from certain terrorist-producing nations. The lower-court judges have made rulings based on their own political ideology and their opposition to the president rather than the law, contends a brief filed by the American Freedom Law Center, or AFLC, on behalf of the national security experts, including Andrew C. McCarthy, the Center for Security Policy, Frank J. Gaffney, Robert J. Shillman, retired Adm....

    t’s not just the VA where we’re having trouble cutting out the deadwood, however. This report from the Washington Post has at least one real eye opener in it. The head of the Treasury has been made aware of problems at the Patent and Trademark Office. Over there, a number of workers were found to be falsifying their time reporting, billing the government for hundreds of thousands of dollars for time not worked. In some of the most severe cases, workers put in two hours of time, then had the audacity to charge the government for a full day plus...

    Six participants from various Arab nations and the UK have pulled out of this year’s Pop-Kultur festival due to a small amount of Israeli funding. Is this a legitimate means of protest or an example of anti-Semitism? When the 2017 Pop-Kultur Festival kicks off in Berlin on Wednesday August 23, the lineup will be slighter smaller than originally planned. Four musical acts from various Arab countries as well as one British-based music collaboration and a British-born panel member won’t be showing up — as a way of protesting against event co-sponsor Israel’s treatment of Palestinians and occupation of the West...

    UPDATE: ESPN ISSUES OFFICIAL STATEMENT: “We collectively made the decision with Robert to switch games as the tragic events in Charlottesville were unfolding, simply because of the coincidence of his name. In that moment it felt right to all parties. It’s a shame that this is even a topic of conversation and we regret that who calls play by play for a football game has become an issue.” In a story that seems made for The Onion, but is actually true, according to multiple Outkick fans inside ESPN MSESPN decided to pull an Asian college football announcer named Robert Lee...

    Black Lives Matter activist Chanelle Helm released a list of “requests” to white people in the wake of the violence in Charlottesville, Virginia, this month. Helm, the so-called “cofounder and core organizer of Black Lives Matter Louisville,” explained in an article published at Leoweekly.com the things she says need to “change.” “White people, if you don’t have any descendants, will your property to a black or brown family. Preferably one that lives in generational poverty,” Helm writes in an article titled “White people, here are 10 requests from a Black Lives Matter leader.” White people are asked, “Give up the...

    If Outkick's reports are true, then the left has officially reached peak idiocy. No, strike that – they reached it, decided it wasn’t quite idiotic enough, and built a tower out of their own unused brain cells on which they could climb to even loftier heights of idiocy. That’s where we’re at. Outkick the Coverage’s Clay Travis reports Lee – again, not a 210-year-old dead Confederate general – has been moved to Youngstown State at Pittsburgh game, where he won’t run the risk of hurting anyone’s feelings with the snowflake-melting power of his name.

    Apparently, even being Asian doesn’t mean people won’t take you for being a white nationalist. According to the popular college-football blog Outkick the Coverage, ESPN pulled an Asian announcer from calling a University of Virginia football game. The announcer’s name is Robert Lee. “Did I mention that Robert Lee is Asian?” blogger Clay Travis asked rhetorically in a post that poured scorn over the popular sports network for political correctness, calling it “MSESPN.” Citing “multiple Outkick fans inside ESPN,” Mr. Travis said Mr. Lee was pulled from the Cavaliers Sept. 2 game in Charlottesville against William and Mary “because they...

    The governor of Missouri has issued a stay of execution for a death row inmate and appointed a panel to investigate his conviction. The order came only hours before Marcellus Williams, 48, was due to be put to death for the 1998 murder of Felicia Gayle, a newspaper reporter. "A sentence of death is the ultimate, permanent punishment," Governor Eric Greitens said in a statement. Lawyers for Williams say someone else's DNA is on the murder weapon. "To carry out the death penalty, the people of Missouri must have confidence in the judgment of guilt," wrote Governor Greitens. "In light...

    A prominent Shia Muslim imam in California is sticking defiantly with his allegation that Israel finances and arms ISIS — the Sunni Muslim terrorist group that has carried out genocidal campaigns against religious minorities in Iraq and Syria, among them Christians and Yazidis. In a June 23 sermon, the founder and director of the Islamic Education Center of Orange County, Dr. Sayed Moustafa al-Qazwini, who has been widely acclaimed for his role in interfaith dialogue in southern California, insisted that Israel was the driving force behind ISIS, after first explaining to his congregation that the terrorist group was “anti-Islamic.” “Most...

    Tucker Carlson says he mocked liberals and media members who took him seriously when he joked that President Trump was “impressive” for looking at the sun without glasses during the Monday’s eclipse. “It was a test to see if liberals are really as slow and humorless as people claim. Turns out they are,” Carlson said in a statement when asked about his comment. Many news organizations, including TheWrap, covered comments that Carlson made on Monday night. He spoke in a tone that only a regular viewer of “Tucker Carlson Tonight” would have realized wasn’t to be taken seriously — but...
