    "Elements of the U.S. military are clearly aware that much of what the U.S. is doing in Yemen is aiding AQAP and there is much angst about that," said Michael Horton, a fellow at the Jamestown Foundation, a U.S. analysis group that tracks terrorism. "However, supporting the UAE and the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia against what the U.S. views as Iranian expansionism takes priority over battling AQAP and even stabilizing Yemen," Horton said.

    Behold Friday’s installment of things you won’t see six-person CNN panels on. In a story published Friday morning by the left-leaning Huffington Post, reporter Kevin Robillard released video of Democratic Tennessee Congressman Steve Cohen suggesting that fellow Tennessee Congresswoman and Republican senatorial candidate Marsha Blackburn should kill herself. “The big orange President — that’s not somebody from Knoxville. He’s going to come down here and he is going to endorse Marsha Blackburn, because Marsha Blackburn, if he says, ‘Jump off the Harahan Bridge,’ she’ll jump off the Harahan Bridge. I wish he’d say that. She will do anything he says,”...
  • MAUDE GORMAN’S HISTORY OF CHEATING LEADS TO DECISIVE ACTION BY RACES, SPONSORS

    Since Her Initial Disqualification she had been removed from 3 more events, kicked off of The USA Skyrunning Team, and lost a sponsorship More details have emerged regarding Maude Gorman’s racing history. It has become clear that her racing accomplishments were a lie. She stood on podiums seemingly oblivious to the fact that she stole from those standing next to her or those that were bumped off entirely. I have been in contact with officials from all of these races. The evidence was clear, and their actions were decisive. I received an email on Thursday morning from the race’s timer,...
  • Is the Koran a Literary Masterpiece?

    Crisis Magazine ^ | August 10, 2018 | William Kilpatrick
    In my last piece for Crisis, I emphasized the importance of casting doubts on Islamic beliefs just as we cast doubts on Soviet Communist ideology during the Cold War. With that in mind, let’s talk about the Koran. It’s the fountain from which the ideology flows. It is quoted incessantly by terrorist leaders and imams alike, and it provides the motivation for both armed jihadists in combat fatigues, and cultural jihadists in business suits.So it would seem logical for those threatened by Islam to cast doubts on the Koran. If the Koran came to be seem as a man-made fabrication...

    Wednesday morning, after the Ohio 12th Congressional District election went to Republican Troy Balderson in a squeaker, President Trump tweeted, “As long as I campaign and/or support Senate and House candidates (within reason), they will win. … we will have a giant Red Wave!” The truth is, unless the president shapes up before November, the GOP may be waving goodbye to a majority in the House of Representatives. Despite some cheerleading from the true believers, Tuesday was not a good day for the GOP. In 2016, Trump carried the 12th District by 11 points. In Tuesday’s special election, Balderson defeated...

    In case you did not know, it appears like George Soros, the billionaire philanthropist, reptilian mastermind, alleged Israel hater and proud Nazi collaborator (as per his own admission in PBS’ 60 Minutes interview) has a son, Alex Soros respectively. Before moving on with our story, you should know that George Soros is a Hungarian Jew. And yes, he’s a Jew who collaborated with the Nazis during WW2. Don’t believe me? Here’s an excerpt from the 60 Minutes interview, where Soros Senior admits that he helped the Nazi regime in his youth, that he has no regrets about it, as someone...

    Fallen star Mary Sean Young is wanted for questioning after cops say she was seen on surveillance video stealing thousands of dollars worth of laptops from a store in New York City. Once a big star in the 1980s and 1990s, playing the iconic role of Rachel in Blade Runner and Ray Finkle in Ace Ventura: Pet Detective, Young's increasingly erratic behavior over the years has seen a dramatic fall from grace. Now the 58-year-old actress is wanted by police for burglary after she was caught on camera breaking into School of Old store, on 36 Avenue in Astoria, Queens,...

    Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell said Friday he still wants to have Judge Brett Kavanaugh confirmed and sitting on the Supreme Court by the start of the new term in October. That is an aggressive schedule that means senators would hold a final vote well before all of the documents they’ve requested about his background would be released to the public by the National Archives ~snip~ “He’ll get confirmed. It won’t be a landslide, but he’ll get confirmed,” the senator said.

    A homeless transgender woman, who strangled to death a man with whom she had a decade-long friendship after being invited to live in his Portland, Ore., apartment, was sentenced Thursday to 18 years in prison. Paris McConville, 35, pleaded guilty to one count each of first-degree manslaughter and second-degree assault in the August 2017 death of Ryan Thompson, 35, FOX12 Oregon reported. “In the end, he lost his life because he trusted the wrong person," Thompson’s sister, Cecily Thompson-Thiel, said in court. McConville walked into a local police station 17 hours after killing her friend and confessed, the Oregonian...

    It's ironic that the loudest of Trump haters routinely breach the very civil standards of decency they claim justify their antipathy. Others are just creepily obsessed. I'm not exaggerating. Trump haters from both sides of the political aisle have fretted themselves into a consuming frenzy against the president. Whatever worldview they had, it is now overlaid with a Trump-animus fixation that obscures rational thought. It has slain their civility and subordinated their passion for certain policies. For them, everything in the Trump era is personal. Convinced of Trump's pure evil, they remorselessly suspend rules they previously observed. Defiant professions...

    ALEXANDRIA, Va. (AP) — The Latest on the bank fraud and tax evasion trial of former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort (all times local): 10:50 a.m. The judge in Paul Manafort's trial has called a recess without explanation. U.S. District Judge T. S.

The judge then exited the courtroom toward the jury room. The recess comes as prosecutors are preparing to finish their case Friday. Manafort faces charges of bank...

    American liberals have always professed to believe in tolerance, diversity, and freedom of speech. However, today’s reality is very different. As the Left gained control of the commanding heights of culture and increasingly business across the nation, the new liberal philosophy became freedom for me but not for thee. Consider the saga of Alex Jones, the radio talk show host who manages the website Infowars.com. He is controversial, to say the least, having pushed various conspiracy theories. But then, some left-wing activists attack anyone to the right of Hillary Clinton as a racist and fascist. Apple, Facebook, Spotify, and YouTube...
