    Five Minnesota men currently facing charges of criminal conspiracy after being caught preparing to go to Syria to fight for the Islamic State are demanding that charges be dismissed. Moosli Krahp, attorney for the five, stipulated that "the Islamic State has engaged in acts the rest of the world holds to be atrocious. However, these terror tactics are forced upon them by the superior firepower of their enemies. The West and its puppet allies can strike from the air. Civilians may be killed, but are quickly labeled 'collateral damage.' Well, the beheadings, torture, and similar actions carried out by the...

    The United States of America, 2020 President Hillary Clinton has been in office since January of 2017, after defeating Donald J. Trump in the closest and most litigated election in American history. Disliked as a candidate by the right, as President she is despised by Congress and most Americans, who are now well aware that an incompetent criminal sits in the Oval Office. The vast social engineering of the US military that rode roughshod over the armed services under Barack Obama is now legal policy. Open homosexuality is common in all branches.

The movie has very course language and extreme violence. But it is true to life and not gratuitous. I normally would not see, let alone recommend an R Rated movie...but in this case every adult American should know what happened in Benghazi.

    This week, while addressing the Senate Armed Services Committee regarding the ongoing effort to open combat positions to female troops, the Marine Corps commandant and Army chief of staff both told senators "that they believe women should be required to sign up for the military draft now that they are being integrated into all combat positions." The generals, Robert Neller, USMC and Mark Milley, US Army, told the committee that women should no longer be exempted from the Selective Service program. The integration of women into combat position without a long term study by the defense department is being forced...

    WASHINGTON -- Two House Republicans introduced a bill Thursday requiring eligible women in the United States to sign up for the military draft, just days after it was recommended by the Marine Corps and Army. Rep. Duncan Hunter, R-Calif., a Marine veteran, and Rep. Ryan Zinke, R-Minn., a retired Navy SEAL, filed the Draft American's Daughters Act to stoke debate over the military's historic move to fully integrate female troops into all combat roles. If passed, women from 18-26 years old would for the first time have to join men in registering with the Selective Service program and potentially be...

If you have any contacts in the online Francophone world, please kick this link over to them. In today's EU, this essay would be "hate speech" on its face, for stating the truth about Islam's mortal threat to European civilization.

    On June 6, 2012—the 68th anniversary of D-Day—a statue of Maj. Dick Winters was unveiled in the Normandy village of Sainte-Marie-du-Mont. Winters was the commander of Easy Company, 506th Parachute Infantry Regiment, 101st Airborne Division after they parachuted into Normandy on June 6, 1944. His heroism and leadership was documented in the Stephen Ambrose book and mini-series "Band of Brothers". A young student named Jordan Brown—who lives just a few miles from Winters' Pennsylvania home—raised $99,000 selling armbands stamped with a phrase Winters used: "Hang Tough." The money was used to help pay for the statue of the late Mr....

    The following video and text don't supply an answer to that question. The author of the text (which is in German) is purportedly a former member of the Islamic State who wants to warn the West that ISIS possesses four nuclear devices, and plans to use them against the United States, Russia, France, and Germany. What he says may well be a hoax, or more specifically, deliberately planted disinformation to achieve particular political ends. I can think of several Great Powers who would find it useful to disseminate the fiction that ISIS is ready to use nuclear weapons. However, it...

    On this date (January 27) in 1945, the Soviet Army liberated Auschwitz. Auschwitz, also known as Auschwitz-Birkenau, opened in 1940 and was the largest of the Nazi concentration and death camps. Located in southern Poland, Auschwitz initially served as a detention center for political prisoners. However, it evolved into a network of camps where Jewish people and other perceived enemies of the Nazi state were exterminated, often in gas chambers, or used as slave labor. Some prisoners were also subjected to barbaric medical experiments led by Josef Mengele (1911-79). During World War II (1939-45), more than 1 million people, by...

The conduct of the US Navy officer in charge, Secretary of State John Kerry and Secretary of Defense Ash Carter was nothing less than a complete and utter disgrace. No doubt the order to surrender...

    Iraq has been one of the key contributors to the uptick in OPEC oil production over the past year and a half. Despite the fact that the country’s crude oil output has continuously been plagued by security concerns and faltering payments to international oil companies from both the Kurdish regional government (KRG) and Baghdad and an ongoing row over oil export rights, it has still managed to ramp up production to record levels. Iraq’s consistent and record oil output last year is, by and large, contributable to the production in the south of the country. According to a January 16....

    JOINT CHIEFS OF STAFF ARE NOT CLEARLY DRINKING THE OBAMA KOOL-AID Over the past 7 years, our “not Muslim” president Barack Hussein Obama has systematically decimated all branches of the US military by purging out any and all leaders who did not want to go along with his vision of an LGBT-infused, pro-Muslim military. We have listed below a partial listing of the results of the purge. DEFINITION OF THE WORD CONTEMPT AS USED IN THIS ARTICLE: 1. THE FEELING OR ATTITUDE OF REGARDING SOMEONE OR SOMETHING AS INFERIOR, BASE, OR WORTHLESS; SCORN. 2. THE STATE OF BEING DESPISED OR...

    The great Kingdom of Saudi Arabia—the long-time dictator of crude oil prices for the world—is struggling on all fronts. The Saudis are losing their proxy wars in both Syria and Yemen; their OPEC leadership is under threat; they are not winning the crude oil price war; and its long-running alliance with the West is in question. From Saudi Arabia’s perspective, Iran seems to be gaining ground everywhere. Saudi Arabia has several weaknesses that help explain the current anxiety emanating from Riyadh. 1. Saudi Arabia losing its leadership in the OPEC Saudi Arabia has been the default leader of OPEC; however,...

    "It was a mistake, it's our fault, and we apologize for our mistake." You’ve heard of the Geneva Convention, right? Both the U.S. and Iran are signatories to it (unlike, say, Al Qaeda or ISIS), and signatories agree among other things that when they detain people from other nations for border incursions, they will not release photos or other images of them for the purpose of humiliating them. So surely Iran, considering the favorable treatment it’s received of late from the United States, wouldn’t treat U.S. sailors that way - especially in a situation that resulted from a mere no-harm-no-foul...

    The latest capture of two US Navy high speed craft and their crews by Iran, are just another in a long line of provocations and insults by the Iranians towards the United States. This most recent episode of Iranian sand kicked in America’s face occurred on the eve of President Barack Jimmy Carter Obama’s State of Denial speech last night. Here’s a rundown of the official story from the Navy: Ten U.S. sailors were taken prisoner by Iran when two small boats were patrolling near Iranian waters. The U.S. claims one of the small Riverine Command Boats experienced mechanical difficulties,...

    Obama's Foreign Policy: "Completely disconnected from reality" Television’s prominent talking heads commenting on President Barack Obama’s State of the Union Address last night, spoke of how Obama was “completely disconnected from reality” on foreign policy. “Charles Krauthammer seemed to have been left in disbelief: “He is talking about a world that really doesn’t exist,” he said. “And that’s why I think it completely diminished what he said on foreign policy.” (The Blaze, Jan. 12, 2016) Obama broad-stroked those who worry about ISIS on the rampage as conspiracy theorists, calling their claims that this is heading for World War III as...

    Today, my former boss, a retired Army Intelligence officer sent me a copy of a memorandum for record concerning the US Army’s most recent lactation and breastfeeding policies, signed by the new Secretary of the Army, Eric K. Fanning and dated November 10, 2015. My first reaction was to pop a couple Tums even before starting to read it. As I scanned the document, I realized how far the Army has fallen on its sword. The sword of feminism, the sword of lunacy has completely eviscerated the lean green machine, so that it is the US Army in name only...

    It seems like it’s something new every day now. It seems like it’s something worse every day now. Every day, another directive emanates from the Kremlin at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue concerning the absolute evisceration of the US military. Feminist, left-wing social engineers smell blood and they are intent on the complete destruction of our armed forces. These social engineers don’t care if readiness is destroyed. These social engineers don’t care if unit cohesion is destroyed. These social engineers don’t care if combat power is destroyed. They have but one goal, to create some kind of gender neutral fantasy land that...

    The Narrative In recent weeks the Taliban have surged within the Helmand Province to retake the region. U.S. and Afghan troops were in the area to counter Taliban’s plans. Harsh Criticism In a Washington Post interview, former Navy SEAL, now Rep. Ryan Zinke (R), Montana accused the Obama administration of deliberately refusing to provide close air support in a timely manner to assist the American Special forces in ground combat against the attacking Taliban fighters. He believes that air support and rescue efforts were delayed in the Helmand Province case due to Rules of Engagement concerns about collateral damage. Upon...

    ISIS militants in Libya continue to attack key oil infrastructure in the country. The two large oil export terminals at Es Sider and Ras Lanuf came under ISIS attacks on January 4-6. Some oil storage tanks exploded after suffering damage from machine gun fire. NASA just published some shocking photos that clearly show the smoke plumes from the oil storage tanks are visible by satellite. The smoke blew east and northeast, blanketing Libya’s Mediterranean Coast. News reports suggest that at least five oil storage tanks are burning, each thought to have the capacity to hold 420,000 to 460,000 barrels of...
  • A Black Eye for America’s Nuclear Agreements

    Do you know which country’s name goes in the blanks of this United States presidential speech? "Good afternoon. I am pleased that the United States and _______ yesterday reached agreement on the text of a framework document on _______’s nuclear program. … Under the agreement, _______ has agreed to freeze its existing nuclear program and to accept international inspection of all existing facilities. It does not rely on trust. Compliance will be certified by the International Atomic Energy Agency." If your answer was “Iran,” you could not be faulted. The statements sound eerily similar to speeches U.S. President Barack Obama...

    We may not like reality but reality is reality none-the-less Some of our more bellicose presidential candidates want a no-fly zone in Syria. Some are adamant about it, and some are nonchalant but make no mistake however they express it a no-fly zone in Syria is not a tool in the war against ISIS. ISIS doesn’t have an air force. A no-fly zone in Syria can only be aimed at Russia who is flying in the area of the desired zone and the air force of the legitimate government of Syria. Now we may say that the government of Bashar...
