  • The Road to Utopia: The "Greenest" Nation on Earth Is a Nightmare

    The North Koreans appear to have successfully detonated a hydrogen bomb in January 2016 and promise more excitement to come. Immediately after the bang the government news agency bragged that the nation was now "capable of wiping out the whole territory of the U.S. all at once."This only slightly distracted mainstream politicos in other nations. North Korea might have gotten a bigger, badder reaction had it elected instead to drive steamrollers over groups of homosexuals or Muslims or women. At least Bernie Sanders, though closer in kinship to the North Korean brand of monarchical socialism than to, say, Ronald Reagan, noticed the bomb. World leaders only pause long...

    Syrian President Bashar al-Assad could make his biggest gains in the country’s long civil war—and potentially tip its outcome in his favor in a matter of weeks—by wresting control of the city of Aleppo from opposition forces, two U.S. military officials told The Daily Beast on condition of anonymity. If government forces are able to successfully encircle the city and hold it, and control the province around it, “the war is essentially over,” said one of the senior defense officials.

    Were Russian tank divisions now pouring into Germany, it is safe to say Germany would be fighting back. As it happens, Germany and Europe are now suffering an invasion more dangerous than that would be. Yet all Frau Merkel can do is stand by the side of the road handing posies to the invaders. As I have pointed out for many years, in a world of Fourth Generation war, invasion by immigration is more dangerous-not less dangerous-than invasion by a foreign army. Why? Because unless the invaders are a Roman army, the enemy army usually goes home. He may permanently...

    Sweden, which has not officially been at war in over 200 years, will soon be pulled into a European conflict according to an internal army document sent to soldiers and civil servants ahead of army manoeuvres next week. Citing the situation in Sweden, the recent decisions of domestic politicians, and global instability, the chief of the Swedish army General Anders Brannstrom told men under his command they could expect to be fighting a war in Europe against skilled opponents "within a few years". As well as soldiers, the booklet containing his stark warning has also been given to civil servants,...

    A group of Ukrainian soldiers came up with a truly unique way of documenting their exploits by attaching a camera to their tank's gun barrel. The dangerous selfie stick captured footage of the soldiers travelling through what is believed to be the Donbass region in eastern Ukraine. The particular area has been the scene of bitter fighting since separatists there began an armed revolt to break away from Kiev to join neighbouring Russia. http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-3419046/The-world-s-dangerous-selfie-stick-Ukrainian-soldiers-attach-camera-tank-s-gun-barrel-capture-incredible-footage-patrol.html

    Western-backed Syrian rebels on Tuesday suffered one of their most significant defeats since Russia's military intervention in Syria turned the tide of the war in favor of President Bashar al-Assad, further complicating prospects for a negotiated settlement at peace talks scheduled later this week in Geneva. After a month-long offensive backed by Russian warplanes, government forces and allied ­militias reclaimed control of the town of Sheikh Miskeen, strategically located at a crossroads commanding a southern supply route between the Jordanian border and the Syrian capital, Damascus. It was the latest in a string of defeats inflicted on rebel fighters in...

    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.

    Over the past several weeks, we have learned that the Obama administration believes it is at war with Israel. The war is not a shooting war, but a political war. Its goal is to bring the government to its knees to the point where Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu loses power or begs Obama and his advisers to shepherd Israel through a “peace process” in which Israel will renounce its rights to Jerusalem, Judea and Samaria. One component of this war is espionage. Last monthThe Wall Street Journal reported that Israel is a top target for American espionage. The other component...

    In AB366, the legislature disenfranchises the independent physician who operates a pain management practice and the lower income or disabled patients who may need to pay for physician services in cash through necessity. This bill, if passed, sets a precedence in Wisconsin that the government can regulate the means for individuals to pay for goods and services in private transactions. Additionally, through the certification provision, it burdens these smaller doctor’s practices with creating records that document traceable transaction records to show how patients pay for their care.

    resident Barack Obama has a penchant for declaring peace. For example, his second inaugural, delivered in Jan. 2013: "A decade of war is now ending," he said. "An economic recovery has begun." That speech echoed remarks he made on Jan. 5, 2012. Prepping for the presidential election, the president asserted, "Even as our troops continue to fight in Afghanistan, the tide of war is receding." Looming peace was a central campaign theme. In a column written right after Obama's 2012 remarks, The Washington Post's David Ignatius argued that Obama "was declaring that the era that began on Sept. 11, 2001,...

Most of the economic sanctions imposed on Iran will be removed on Friday, US State Department officials said, while Russia readies the sale of advanced weapons to the Islamic Republic. January 15 will mark the end of the international sanctions regime, which has been in place since 2007 through a series of decisions by American Presidents George W.

The mullahs now act like they call the shots on the deal and throughout the Middle East. Trashing the Saudi embassy in Tehran, “spontaneous” in appearance only, is just the latest evidence, recalling a 1979 “spontaneous” demonstration that resulted in U.S. diplomats held hostage for 444 days. Barack Obama repeatedly acquiesces in Iran's egregious behavior; President-in-waiting Hillary Clinton shows no sign of breaking with him or the Iran policies she initiated as Obama's secretary of...

In October, Iran test-fires a nuclear-capable ballistic missile in brazen violation of unanimous United Nations Security Council resolutions. President Barack Obama does nothing. One month later, Iran does it again. The administration makes a few gestures at the U.N. Then nothing. Then finally, on Dec. 30, the White House announces a few sanctions. They are weak, aimed mostly at individuals and designed essentially for show. Amazingly, even that proves too...

President Obama said this weekend that he'll meet Monday with Attorney General Loretta Lynch to discuss his "options” toward curbing gun violence, after ordering his White House team several months ago to identify "new actions" that he can take. The president also said that he's taking action because Congress has failed to act. He is expected to use so-called executive orders to tighten federal...

It is essentially what Trump has done to conservative policy gurus this year. Trump has reached over anti-abortion diehards, foreign policy neocons, and supply siders to tell base voters directly what he thinks they want to hear and it's working. But he still doesn't have a grasp on how what he's promoting fits into long-term movement conservatism objectives -- nor does he seem...

    President Barack Obama’s 2012 amnesty for “Dreamers”–illegal aliens who entered the United States as children–likely created the conditions under which one of the San Bernardino terrorists could enter the country. Obama announced his unilateral policy, Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA), the “Dream Act by fiat,” in June 2012 after immigration reform activists warned that he could risk losing support from Latino voters in his re-election campaign. Obama infamously broke his promise to pass amnesty in his first term, and risked being outflanked by Republican proposals authored by Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL) 79% to help “Dreamers” stay in the country....

    However, Rubio is still the loser of this debate. Unlike the Florida man, Cruz never co-sponsored immigration reform with Chuck Schumer, but instead opposed that legislation. And Cruz, though he seems to have favored amnesty (in the sense of a path to legalization), never favored a path to citizenship, as Rubio did. To me, and probably a great many other Republicans, granting citizenship to those who violated our immigration laws is significantly more egregious than permitting them to remain here with legal status. But this doesn’t mean Cruz is the winner. Why? Because Donald Trump has insisted that illegal immigrants...

    There are terrorists in our midst and they arrived here using legal means right under the noses of the federal law enforcement agencies whose mission is to stop them. That is not due to malfeasance or lack of effort on the part of these officers; it is due to the restrictions placed on them by the Obama administration. I was a firsthand witness to how these policies deliberately prevented scrutiny of Islamist groups. The two San Bernardino jihadists, Syed Farook and Tashfeen Malik, may have benefited from the administration's closure of an investigation I initiated on numerous groups infiltrating radicalized...

Right to Rise's ad highlights Bush's conflict with Donald Trump during Tuesday night's GOP presidential debate. "One candidate tough enough to take on the bully," a narrator says as the ad shows Bush in a split-screen with Trump from the debate. "One candidate tough enough to take on [the Islamic State]. Jeb will destroy ISIS and keep America safe." The ad closes with the narrator saying "tested and proven leadership matters."

    <p>The American people will have to absorb higher deficits, greater debt, less economic liberty and more corporate welfare. Congress cannot seem to help itself in bending to every whim of special interests. How can they face their constituents when they continue to burden our children and grandchildren with debts they will never be able to repay? Our government is failing us, so we must do something about it. Who knows how bad things will be when the next administration comes in and has to pick up the pieces?</p>

    Turkey Hunkers Down In Mosul. All This Escalation Is Drawing The Scenario And The Main Players For World War III Turkish maritime authorities have detained 27 Russian ships on the country’s ports on Black Sea in retaliation for the seizure of eight Turkish-flagged ships at Russian ports. This escalation including the situation in Iraq, Syria, Mecca … it all spells out a near collision. Russia detained five Turkish-flagged ships in its ports for audit under the Black Sea Memorandum in the week after November 24, a move to retaliate against Turkey’s downing one of its war planes on the Turkish-Syrian...

    IT'S TIME FOR THE OTHER 13 CANDIDATES TO DROP OUTDecember 16, 2015 At what point in Donald Trump's inaugural address do you figure the GOP establishment will finally grasp what's been happening? The establishment -- not "elites," because they're mostly bland functionaries who went to third-rate schools -- have thrown absolutely everything they have at Trump. I've never seen so many Republicans featured on MSNBC. At least no one will be able to say the Republican National Committee didn't give it the old college try (and, again, that would be third-rate colleges). Trump is a runaway hit with Americans for...

    BEGIN TRANSCRIPT RUSH: Cookie went and rolled off the answer Trump gave to the question from Hugh Hewitt about whether he will run third party or not. This is what I talked about at the opening of the program where Trump drops the performance persona and communicates. This is an example of many; these things happen frequently in his personal appearances. I'm only illustrating this, or mentioning it, because so many people still wonder how it is that Trump doesn't get hurt by what some people think are the stupid things he says or the ignorant things he says or...
  • Europe is Gone, World Is Heading Toward ‘Global War’: Glenn Beck’s Warning

    Glenn Beck, who last week traveled through Europe and the Middle East, said on his eponymous radio show Monday morning that he believes Europe, “as we know it,” is “gone.” “You have to understand, Europe is gone,” the host said. “They are headed for catastrophe and headed for terrorist strike after terrorist strike after terrorist strike. Riots in the streets.” According to Beck, Europe is in serious trouble because “they refused to listen to the warnings.” And he believes that the U.S. is heading down the same path “if we don’t get control of our immigration and our refugee problem...

    American conservatives are rightfully annoyed with the Obama administration, and Democrats generally, for refusing to name radical Islam or Islamism as the major source of terror. When Nidal Hasan murdered 13 fellow soldiers at Fort Hood ,the administration refused to label the mass murder -- committed by a Muslim in the name of Islam -- an act of Islamist terror, or even terror at all. Instead it was officially declared a "workplace shooting." And when President Obama convened an international conference on terror, he refused to include the word "terror" or any form of the word "Islamist" in the title....

    If there was any doubt that Ted Cruz is the hot commodity of late in the Republican presidential race, it should be dispelled by the results of the latest national poll. Ryan Lovelace of the Washington Examiner reports, “A new national survey shows that while Donald Trump maintains a huge lead among GOP primary voters, Sen. Ted Cruz is continuing to surge. Marco Rubio“According to the latest New York Times/CBS poll, Trump wins 35 percent of the vote, and has a 19-point lead over Cruz. But Cruz jumped into second place with 16 percent, which is roughly four times the...

Mannheim Steamroller, they've got all kinds of Christmas playlists that they put together, Christmas cocktail, which is jazz, country Christmas. I was just reveling. Now, it has to be stuff that I've heard before for me to be able to enjoy, but Christmas music fits the bill. There isn't that much new since I lost my hearing, so I spent some time doing that, just finding...

    A United Nations agency agreed Tuesday to close its investigation into Iran’s past nuclear activities, moving Tehran another step closer to large-scale sanctions relief following its deal with world powers this summer. Diplomats said the International Atomic Energy Agency’s board of governors unanimously approved a resolution drafted by the U.S. and five other countries that will close the investigation in the coming weeks. That five-month probe concluded that Iran had a nuclear-weapons-related program until 2003 and then continued some of those activities as late as 2009. However, the agency said Iran’s activities weren’t advanced and that there was no evidence...
