    The number of celebrities who support Donald Trump continues to grow as UFC Hall of Famer and current Bellator fighter Tito Ortiz has now publicly endorsed the presumptive GOP presidential nominee. The 41-year-old was spotted in attendance at a Trump rally in Anaheim, Calif., this week. His appearance caused a stir as Ortiz was pictured holding a sign that said, “Hillary Clinton Killed My Friends,” and later joined in a “build that wall” chant.

    Take a look back in mixed martial arts history at Genki Sudo’s post-fight celebrations. The cerebral “Neo-Samurai” would raise a flag sporting many other nations’ flags, with bold text that read, “We are All One.” MMA has reached increased visibility across the globe since Sudo’s time. With America’s divisive 2016 presidential election in full swing, it’s time to join an international chorus -- it includes France’s prime minister, the United Nations’ human rights commissioner, Canada’s foreign affairs minister, Holland’s foreign minister and many, many more -- in condemning Donald Trump’s candidacy. Trump’s absurd quotes are proving the American political process...

    On a pleasant Thursday in December 1948, Emilio Traubner, a correspondent for The Palestine Post, found himself near Abu Kabir, not far from Jaffa. Trenches and expended cartridges were strewn about, reminders of the fighting between units of the Irgun and local Arab forces that had taken place there seven months previously. There was a large Arab villa from where Traubner recovered a diary. It turned out to be the daily record of Yusuf Begovic of Pale, a town near Sarajevo in modern-day Bosnia-Herzegovina. In it Begovic had described his activities as a cook for the "Arab Army of Liberation."...

    ST. GEORGE — A Staten Island woman has sued the city claiming police entered her St. George home without a warrant, beat her family and killed her beloved pet parakeet, according to court documents. Last year, Evelyn Lugo's bird, Tito, was thrown from his cage after it was knocked off a dresser as cops came into her Corson Avenue home, the Daily News first reported. The officers then stepped on the bird intentionally, killing it, court documents say. Officers also beat two of Lugo's sons, her daughter and a family friend, the lawsuit claims. According to court documents, police entered...

    Josip Broz Tito (Žika Vučić for Tanjug, file) BELGRADE -- Josip Broz Tito was "not of Yugoslav origin," a recently declassified document published on the CIA website has asserted.The U.S. intelligence agency said that a phonetic analysis of his speech suggested this conclusion. Broz - who came to power in the post-WW2, single-party communist Yugoslavia, and remained president until his death in 1980 - was officially of mixed Croat-Slovenian heritage. But the paper says that the manner in which he spoke "Serbo-Croatian" - allegedly his mother tongue, but spoken with a foreign accent - meant that his true native language,...

    Latest book by a biographer of Yugoslav communists has found documents which show that Yugoslav communist bandits have tortured Serbia’s WWII General Mihailovich in order to force him to admit guilt.Contrary to the claims by communist “historians”, Serbia’s General Mihailovich was tortured by Yugoslav communist secret service. Mihailovich was tortured for days by Lazic and Bedakovic, two communist security chiefs from Belgrade and Zagreb centers.Lazic and Bedakovic got their training from Stalin’s security capo, Beria, who impressed Stalin by being able to make any man admit to anything.Only 2 people lived through Lazic’s and Bedakovic’s interrogation tactics, and Mihailovich, who was...

    The dreams of dozens of Norwegian girls ended in disenchantment on Saturday when organizers axed part of their show at the UN General Assembly in New York, citing concerns over lyrics listing some of history’s worst tyrants. The 46 members of the Norwegian Girls Choir had long looked forward to performing their song about war and peace at the General Assembly Hall, newspaper Aftenposten reports. But the girls, aged 12 to 19, never got to realize their ambition after the organizers of the Rhythms of One World Festival took fright on hearing the choir sound-check.

    When Russian leader Josef Stalin died, on March 5 in 1953, a letter was found in his office that had been written by Yugoslavian leader Josip Broz Tito. The two leaders were bitter enemies, after Tito had used World War II as an opportunity to spark a revolution and lead Yugoslavia to independence from Soviet influence. A combination of pride, fear and jealousy had spurred Stalin to attempt to have Tito killed - and no less than 22 assassination attempts had been made in the years after the war.

    History: President Salvador Allende of Chile really did commit suicide in 1973, an inquest concluded on Tuesday. Now will the Left stop saying the U.S. and Chile's army did him in? Except perhaps for Che Guevara, no one has quite been the heroic totem to the global left than the late Marxist president of Chile, whose death in 1973 made him a martyr to socialism. Allende seemingly legitimized socialism as a democratically elected leader, the first Marxist who in 1970 didn't shoot his way to power.That gave the left hope for more. Elected with just 36% of the vote in...

    Today, May 4, 2011 is the 31st anniversary of the death of Josip Broz Tito, the lifetime President of Yugoslavia. Some adore him, some hate him, some are disgusted by the very mention of his name nowadays. Yugoslavia was the country of my birth and childhood. This is what I have to say about it, now, from a distance. The good aspects of Communism were the following: free health care for all, free education for all, including University education, high respect for workers' rights (there was no way you could get fired - unless you did something really stupid, but...
  • Communist Subversion From Within: Linn Farish and the Draza Mihailovich Case

    During World War II, the OSS liaison officer to Josip Broz Tito’s Communist Partisans was American agent Major Linn “Slim” Farish. Farish’s accounts helped decisively to switch Allied support away from Draza Mihailovich and to Tito. But who was Farish and how credible were his reports? New evidence from the Venona decrypts reveal that he may have been an agent allegedly working for Soviet intelligence. British Brigadier Fitzroy Maclean of the Special Air Services (SAS), a special forces unit of the British Army, referred to him in Eastern Approaches (1949) as “my American chief of staff”. Was Linn Farish, like...

According to Kavaja, one of the most crucial actions were the assassination attempts on Tito. He again claimed that the first assassination failure took place in Brasilia...

For every German wounded, 50 Serbs would be shot. This decree would be posted throughout Belgrade, Serbia on September 13, 1941. The Germans were not kidding. General Boehme, the German Commanding General of the occupation forces in Serbia from September 16 to December 2 of 1941, issued three orders to supplement Hitler’s decree....

    BERLIN -- Choked in ivy, its balconies and pillars crumbling, the once-imposing villa looks as if it were abandoned years ago. A curtain twitches. A dark-haired woman wearing sunglasses peers out before whipping it back. She lives in just two rooms of the spacious property and one of those has a hole in the ceiling. The others are uninhabitable owing to damp, mold and broken windows. There has been no heating for 25 years. Water has to be heated on a stove. Many elderly residents of Belgrade, Serbia-Montenegro, in straitened circumstances share a similar fate. But this is the home...

    The Axis occupation of former Yugoslavia and the domestic reaction to it present a complex picture. The legacy of these experiences has still not been completely overcome. The German-led onslaught on the Kingdom of Yugoslavia began on 6 April 1941 and ended with that country's capitulation 11 days later. Known from 1918 to 1929 as the Kingdom of Serbs, Croats, and Slovenes, the Serbian-dominated state did not make a serious effort to remove the sources of its main domestic problem, namely Croatian discontent, until 1939. In that year, the Belgrade authorities cut a deal with Vlado Macek of the Croatian...

Described for the first time by Serbian newspaper Vecernje Novosti at the weekend, the reported "secret tunnel network" near the barracks where two Serb army sentries were shot dead in a mystery killing six weeks ago was part of a nuclear-proof underground complex that goes six floors deep. A secret military facility of some sort had been the focus of intense speculation since sentries Dragan Jakovljevic and Drazen Milovanovic...

The leader of Macedonia's Democratic Alternative Party Vassil Tupurkovski suggested the name Upper Macedonia to replace Former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia. He was quoted saying by MPA news agency that his country should adopt a name that would contribute to the good cooperation between Greece and Macedonia. Macedonia needs a partner in the face of Greece, Tupurkovski stated, on the small Balkan state's path toward the European Union. He ruled out the direct role of the US in the conflict over Macedonia's official name, after Bush's administration officially recognised...

    President Bush's new strategy of transferring power quickly to Iraqis, and his critics' alternatives, share a fundamental flaw: all commit the United States to a unified Iraq, artificially and fatefully made whole from three distinct ethnic and sectarian communities. That has been possible in the past only by the application of overwhelming and brutal force. President Bush wants to hold Iraq together by conducting democratic elections countrywide. But by his daily reassurances to the contrary, he only fans devastating rumors of an American pullout. Meanwhile, influential senators have called for more and better American troops to defeat the insurgency. Yet...

    When I am asked about the case for sending people into space, my answer is that, as a scientist, I’m against it. Most of what astronauts do in space can be done better and more cheaply now by computers and robots. Each advance in robotics and miniaturization only widens the efficiency gap between man and machine in space. Circling the Earth for months on end, the International Space Station is nothing more than a huge turkey in the sky. Now that only two astronauts are aboard the craft, the pursuit of any serious projects is even less likely; most of...
