  • Keeping Assad and Putin guessing, Trump would make Carl von Clausewitz proud........

    Washington Examiner ^ | April 10, 2018 | Tom Rogan
    First off, by waiting to strike, the U.S. keeps Syrian air defense forces in a state of very high readiness and forces Assad to continue guessing whether the U.S. knows where his high-value assets have been relocated. At the tactical level (front line Syrian military units) and strategic level (Assad and his commanders), the U.S. approach here means significant stress and abundant fear. This matters because effective military force and strategy is largely determined by the ability of individuals to operate effectively. But if individuals are fearful and exhausted, their operability will suffer. Even if marginally, this mitigates the threat...

    Few predicted when Mexico joined the free-trade deal that it would transform the country in a way that would saddle millions with diet-related illnesses.William Ruiz Snchez spends his days grilling burgers and slathering fried hot dogs with pepperoni and cheese at his familys restaurant. Refrigerators and fire-engine red tables provided by Coca-Cola feature the companys logo in exchange for exclusive sale of its drinks.

  • Jane Fonda says she's not proud of America

    Jane Fonda says she's not proud of America Jane Fonda made it clear she is not proud of America. During a recent interview with the BBC, Fonda was asked, "Are you proud of America today?" The actress was very quick to reply with a hard "no." "But, Im proud of the resistance," she elaborated. "Im proud of the people who are turning out in unprecedented numbers and continue over and over and over again to protest what Trump is doing. Im very proud of them, that core."

  • Donald Trump Jr says college campuses teach Americans to hate their country and religion

    Besides defending his father, Trump Jr used much of his 35-minute address to mock the culture on most of the nations college campuses, which he said teaches young Americans to hate their country and hate their religion while squelching conservative voices. He noted instances where conservatives have been denied speaking opportunities or encountered protests upon their appearances. Todays conservative speech is violence. Unprovoked liberal violence is self-defense, Trump Jr complained. Words have lost their meanings. He continued: Hate speech is that America is a good country ... that we need borders ... anything that comes out of the mouth of...

    A few days ago, I caught Trump's speech to the Building Trades Unions National Legislative Conference. In a nutshell, Trump vowed to fix the job-killing, out-of-control, crazy regulations harming businesses. Trump said, "One of my first acts as president was to stop one of the great sellouts of the American worker." Calling NAFTA a disaster, Trump said he took us out of the Trans-Pacific Partnership. The audience erupted with applause. Trump is swiftly dismantling many of Obama's anti-America agenda items. It dawned on me: this guy is simply implementing commonsense policies in the best interest of America and her citizens...

    They are like the bully in the schoolyard lashing out against everyone because he has gotten to the point that he believes his own bull, and is so corrupt he could cheat at solitaire and not understand how it could possibly be cheating Tools. Mindless and obedient automatons. Those are the most accurate words that come to mind when it comes to the foaming-at-the-mouth liberal left hysteria movement following the election and inauguration of President Donald J. Trump. The liberal left loons believe the ridiculous and obviously erroneous propaganda being spouted by the liberal media, Democrat politicians, and completely out-of-their-mind...

And if he's not really a bad guy, why isn't he a bad guy? Let me tell you what's gonna happen. It's a Daily Mail story, an article in the U.K. Daily Mail that the bomber, Rahami, is suing everybody he knows for discrimination because he's a Muslim. So, see, this guy's smart.

    All Colin Kaepernick did was connect the progressive dots. He got an A on the test. His conclusion -- that the United States is an evil nation built and maintained for the oppression of black people -- is exactly the point made repeatedly by President Obama, Hillary Clinton, the Democratic platform and any number of progressive candidates and activists. He did nothing that their words have not implicitly demanded time and time again. At the end of last week, in a meaningless preseason NFL game, meaningless back-up 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick sat down through the national anthem as a sign...

    Customers at a Staten Island Home Depot were shocked to see one of the companys employees wearing an America Was Never Great hat earlier this week. Krystal Lake, 22, of St. George got political during a shift on Tuesday. Her twist on Republican presidential hopeful Donald Trumps slogan was immediately shared online. Ms. Lake said the social media furor between those who said she correct, and those who thought she was both unprofessional and wrong, was unexpected.

    Any politician who claims to care about the drug overdose deaths sweeping the nation, but does not demand that we build a wall, deport illegal aliens and end the anchor baby scam, is a liar. In 2014, more people died from drug overdoses than any year in U.S. history: 47,055. That's more than die in car accidents -- and it's not even close. This is a huge, horrible problem -- and it's a problem caused entirely by the fact that Mexico is on our southern border. The diverse, hardworking people of Mexico manufacture the majority of heroin in the U.S....

    Mexican authorities want to speak with U.S. actor Sean Penn and Latin television star Kate del Castillo, a Mexican law enforcement official told NBC News Sunday. The revelation came a day after Rolling Stone published a secret interview that Joaquin "El Chapo" Guzman apparently gave to Penn while on the run. The official also said that investigators were able to learn details about Guzman's whereabouts by intercepting phone conversations between Penn, Del Castillo and the drug lord.

    When El Chapo was arrested (again) I didn’t pay all that much attention to the story. That’s not to say that it wasn’t important or that both Mexico and the DEA didn’t have a good reason to hunt him down, but it’s not the sort of thing that’s going to change the world in a substantive, positive way. When you take out a cartel kingpin like that there are plenty more ready and eager to take his place. Even if you could identify, locate and take out his entire army, all you’d manage to do would be to cause...

    Well I didn’t win the Powerball drawing last night. And apparently you didn’t either. With no winners in Saturday night's record $949.8 million Powerball jackpot, the next jackpot could reach an estimated $1.3 billion, lottery officials said early Sunday. What would you do if you won $1.3 billion? And since we’re playing make believe, let’s pretend that you don’t have to first give half your winnings to the IRS. I’d buy new appliances and spend the rest buying the 2016 American presidential election. At least I think $1.3 billion would be enough to Make America Great Again (MAGA).Alternatively, if it...

    It sounds like Sean Penn has given up guns for good. It was at his annual pre-Golden Globes gala for J/P HRO that he revealed that girlfriend Charlize Theron convinced him to have his collection of nearly 65 firearms turned into a sculpture by artist Jeff Koons and then auctioned off for the Haiti relief organization. Penn told me at this year's benefit on Saturday night that he's not missing the weapons. "I think guns are not something to be missed," he said.

    Sean Penn's secret interview with Mexican drug lord Joaquin Guzman helped law enforcement authorities to locate El Chapo's whereabouts.

At that time the official said they called off their raid because Guzman was was with two women and a child, according to the Associated Press.

    Mexico Seeks to Extradite ‘El Chapo’ Guzmán to U.S. José de Córdoba and Dudley Althaus Updated Jan. 9, 2016 5:24 p.m. ET MEXICO CITY—Mexico will act on U.S. requests to extradite captured drug lord Joaquín Guzmán, the government said Saturday. Mr. Guzmán, known as “El Chapo” or “Shorty,” was recaptured Friday after escaping from a maximum-security prison in Mexico in July. Mr. Guzmán faces federal indictments in Chicago and in six other U.S. cities for drug trafficking, money laundering and other crimes, such as homicide. The U.S. has filed two extradition requests with the Mexican government, which has ruled the...
