    ANF spoke with a YPG fighter in the hills of the Bilika village in the Rajo district about how the invasion attempt by the Turkish army and their accompanying ISIS and Al-Nusra gangs looks from the battle field. Every moment in the Afrin resistance is of historic importance. In the Resistance of the Age that has continued for over a month, the whole truth is still not reflected. It is truly important what the YPG and YPJ figthters who have been clashing on the fronts for weeks experienced. My luck was good and I stayed with a group of YPG...

Last week Steve Bannon warned the GOP elites, ” We’re going to cut off the oxygen to Mitch McConnell.” McConnell didn’t like that.Today McConnell lashed out at Steve Bannon for going after GOP senate seats in...

    WASHINGTON – The venerated journalistic institution the Washington Post, which recently adopted the slogan “Democracy Dies in Darkness,” published a column Wednesday by a spokesman for the “Prince of Darkness” who blamed Christianity for slavery and white supremacism. The op-ed by Lucien Greaves, both a defense of satanism and an attack on Christianity, was headlined “I’m a founder of the Satanic Temple. Don’t blame Satan for white supremacy.” Although slavery was historically practiced by virtually every culture in the world and only stopped by Christians, Greaves revives the argument that blames it on Christians. In the op-ed, the self-described co-founder of the Satanic...

    Americans are still waiting for a border wall, but France is set to get a wall of their own by the end of the year. Unlike the American iteration, this barrier won’t be erected on the French border. It’s set to surround the Eiffel Tower to shield it from terrorist attacks. Last month, the Paris city council approved a $20 million bulletproof glass wall, just over 8 feet high, that will surround the iconic tower. In a country proudly obsessed with art and beauty, this will be an obnoxious eyesore and a reminder that war and violence is just a...

    Hillary Clinton suggested her campaign rival President Trump will get impeached, in sharp remarks in a commencement address Friday where she brought up 'obstruction of justice' and warned of the steps to authoritarianism. Speaking to gowned graduates at the school where she addressed students in 1969, Clinton referenced the resignation of President Richard Nixon and a House committee's impeachment investigation – but it was clear to graduating students what she was really talking about. 'We were furious about the past presidential election of a man whose presidency would eventually end in disgrace with his impeachment for obstruction of justice,' the...

    A new study by the Paris Region Planning and Development Agency (IAU) has found that 56 per cent of women are afraid to use public transport due to concerns over sex attacks and theft.

    Wikileaks and Julian Assange are calling out tech companies who have not responded to his offer to help ward off CIA Attacks. Of course, one such company who is shying away from help is Google, but Assange says that may have something to do with government contracts they may have. I was just going to say that Google does work with the government program, DARPA, but actually I just found an article stating Google was pulling out of robotics, which is an area in which DARPA excels. This is a very interesting article, so I think I will shift focus...
