    President Trump reportedly wanted to immediately and publicly acknowledge that U.S.-led forces engaged Russian mercenaries in Syria earlier this year, killing hundreds of them, but senior National Security Council staff, led then by H.R. McMaster, intervened, saying it would be unnecessarily antagonizing to Moscow. The president is said to have wanted White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders to immediately acknowledged and “take credit” for fending off the Russian mercenaries.

    You’ve heard the expression that airplane crashes happen in threes. Well, I would venture that assassinations of pro-Russian leaders of legacy, frozen conflicts of the Soviet Union do not. In fact, nothing has ever happened like this – it is not an accident or coincidental. The pro-Russian President of Moldova, Igor Dodon, was injured and taken to the hospital after a car rammed his motorcade while traveling in Moldova near the town of Straseni. His car was flipped over by the violence of the crash. We posted information on this event here: Moldovan President Injured In Vehicle Crash…Hmmmm. The day...

    Bicycles and illegals don't mix on busy city streets in Chicago. No, wait: They actually mix a lot, and that's a problem. A Chicago bike-safety activist, who made it her business to erect bicycles spray-painted white on city streets where cyclists were killed as a reminder to drivers to look out for cyclists, decided that that issue wasn't all that important in cases where the driver is illegal. Which turned out to be her own assault by an incautious illegal alien driver. In her mind, being illegal trumped the very bike safety she spent time erecting monuments to. One set...

    The Israeli intelligence service, Mossad, assassinated a top Syrian rocket scientist on Saturday using a car bomb, the New York Times first reported Tuesday. The scientist, Aziz Asbar, led a confidential unit known as “Sector 4” at the Syrian Scientific Studies and Research Center developing cutting edge missile technology designed to further Syria’s efforts to initiate the long range bombing of Israeli cities. Asbar was killed along with his driver near the research center, which lies in the town of Masyaf and has long been believed to host chemical weapons development. The center has twice been the target of Israeli...

    Madonna uprooted her family from America after President Donald Trump was elected. The superstar revealed she lives in Portugal, telling Vogue Italia she moved her family because they “needed a change.” “I wanted to get out of America for a minute—as you know, this is not America’s finest hour,” Madonna told the magazine during an interview released Wednesday. Madonna isn’t known to play coy about her disdain for the reality TV mogul-turned-president. She’s publicly condemned Trump a number of times since he took office. Along with calling the election a “horror show,” Madonna admitted to having thoughts about “blowing up...

    Ron Dellums, a Marine turned antiwar activist and ground-breaking Democratic politician, was never one to walk away from a fight, no matter who started it. Dellums, who died Monday at the age of 82, made that clear during his first run for Congress in 1970, when Republican Vice President Spiro Agnew, speaking for President Richard Nixon’s White House, pointedly branded the young Berkeley councilman as “an out and out radical” who needed to be “purged from the body politic” for his stance against the war in Vietnam and up-front fight against social ills.

    A White House reporter for CNN was disinvited from a Rose Garden photo opportunity Wednesday after having called out questions to President Trump in an earlier Oval Office meeting about former personal attorney Michael Cohen tape-recording him. According toCNN, when the Rose Garden photo-op was announced, Kaitlan Collins was told by Bill Shine, the White House deputy chief of staff for communications, and chief spokeswoman Sarah Huckabee Sanders that she could not come. “They said ‘You are disinvited from the press availability in the Rose Garden today,’” Ms. Collins said. Ms. Collins had earlier served as the White House “pool...

    The Syrian fighter jet Israel shot down over the Golan Tuesday is an old Soviet-era aircraft that has formed the backbone of Syria’s air force as attrition has taken its toll over seven long years of war. It took off from the T4 Air base more than 200km from the Golan and was on a mission to bomb ISIS targets near the 1974 ceasefire line. Initially thought to be either an SU-22 or SU-24, it was flying towards Israeli airspace at high speed, the IDF said. What do we know about the SU-22 and its capabilities? According to the website...

    Suspected vigilantes on Saturday killed a Muslim man transporting two cows in India, just 15 months after a similar attack spotlighted the growing influence of pro-Hindu fringe groups. Many Hindus regard the cow as sacred, but India’s Muslim minority engages in the trade of cattle for slaughter and consumption, chiefly of buffalo meat, as well as dairy purposes. Police in the northwestern state of Rajasthan said a group of five to seven people surrounded the man, identified only as Akbar, as he led the cows to his village in the nearby state of Haryana and thrashed him to death on...

    The era of Angela Merkel may be coming to an end as longstanding disagreements on migration policies between her and her Bavarian allies threaten to come to a head and potentially unseat the German leader, who has been at the country’s helm since 2005. The coalition of the Christian Democratic Union (CDU) led by Chancellor Merkel and the Bavarian Christian Social Union (CSU) led by interior minister Horst Seehofer is in crisis over differences on mass migration. The CSU under Seehofer has demanded that Germany should be able to reject migrants at the border of the countryi f they have...

    When former President Obama left the White House, he pledged to take a back seat to make room for other Democrats in the party to shine. Nearly 17 months later, that’s proving to be an impossible task. Obama drew headlines this week after a Politico report revealed that he is consulting a long line of would-be 2020 candidates and offering advice to party leadership. And he drew another round of headlines when it was announced that his political committee, Organizing for Action, is revving up to help Democrats in the midterm elections. Democrats have turned to the party patriarch as...

    Riding in a motorcade in Lima, Peru, shortly after the 2016 election, President Barack Obama was struggling to understand Donald J. Trump’s victory. “What if we were wrong?” he asked aides riding with him in the armored presidential limousine. He had read a column asserting that liberals had forgotten how important identity was to people and had promoted an empty cosmopolitan globalism that made many feel left behind. “Maybe we pushed too far,” Mr. Obama said. “Maybe people just want to fall back into their tribe.” SNIP--- Mr. Rhodes describes the reaction of foreign leaders.

    HUGOTON, Kan. — A recently dug-up underground tunnel in southwest Kansas was likely used by 20th-century outlaws Bonnie and Clyde, according to town leaders. Hugoton officials last month discovered a partially collapsed tunnel under a building the couple frequented. The tunnel didn’t contain any direct artifacts from the criminal pair, but town leaders plan to continue digging, the Wichita Eagle reported. “I always wondered why nobody pushed this,” said Jan Leonard, executive director of Stevens County Economic Development. “I’ve been wanting to bring this out for 20 years, but it never has happened. We opened up the tunnel and it...
