    A victorious line of march had been prolonged above a thousand miles from the rock of Gibraltar to the banks of the Loire. The repetition of an equal space would have carried the Saracens to the confines of Poland and the Highlands of Scotland; the Rhine is not more impassable than the Nile or Euphrates, and the Arabian fleet might have sailed without a naval combat into the mouth of the Thames. Perhaps the interpretation of the Koran would now be taught in the schools of Oxford, and the pulpit might demonstrate to circumcised people the sanctity and truth of...

    If you believe a war is being waged against President Donald Trump and the American people who supported him, it is imperative you understand the roots of that war. When Donald Trump was inaugurated as the 45th President of the United States, he made a revealing speech in the presence of his predecessors – George H.W. Bush, Bill Clinton, George W. Bush, and Barack Obama. Trump spoke straightforwardly to the establishment/Deep State in a bold manner no one had heard before. QUOTE: “Today’s ceremony,” he began, “has very special meaning. Because today we are not merely transferring power from one...

    The Deir Ezzor Military Council announced a new US-backed offensive against the Islamic State in eastern Syria.The US-led coalition announced today that the Syrian Arab Coalition (SAC) has begun a new offensive against the Islamic State in the Kahbur River valley. The offensive, named “Operation Jazeera Storm,” aims to dislodge the so-called caliphate from its strongholds north of the city of Deir Ezzor.The new effort means that there are now two different coalitions trying to uproot the self-declared caliphate in eastern Syria. Bashar al Assad’s regime, backed by Iran and Russia, has made progress in Deir Ezzor in recent weeks....

    A Battle Plan from St. Paul Msgr. Charles Pope • October 10, 2016 • The epistle in the Extraordinary Form this past Sunday (21st Sunday after Pentecost) was particularly appropriate for our times. The Holy Spirit, writing through St. Paul, gives us important reminders of how to live and fight as true soldiers of Christ in a world increasingly gripped by satanic darkness. Let’s examine the whole passage and then reflect on its teachings:Be strengthened in the Lord and in the might of His power. Put on the armor of God, that you may be able to stand against...

    The Great Hidden Attack Against Christ Truth There is a great battle going on for the Truth! Jesus Christ is the Truth (Jn 14:6)! The Truth of God “will make you free!” (Jn 8:32; Jer 6:16), now and for all eternity! The false truth of Satan, “the father of lies” (Jn 8:44) will offer us some pleasure now, without the cross of Christ, but there will be slavery afterwards and for all eternity. There is great pressure on everyone today to be “politically correct”, even, and especially, in the Catholic Church. No group or ecclesial movement will be exempt from...

    Its in the interest of the Israeli state to see a swift and peaceful end to the Syrian conflict. The day of judgment for thousands of Islamic State (ISIS) fighters is coming. Raqqa – the military capital of their fanatical state – is surrounded. All over northern Syria tens of thousands of Kurds, Arabs and Assyrians are mobilizing for the push into the city. The Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) has grown enormously over the past year; the renewed commitment from the United States to provide weapons is transforming the only democratic and multi-ethnic force in Syria into the country’s most...

    Seventy-five years ago this Sunday, some 150 Japanese warships, 250 warplanes and 25 admirals were steaming toward a small atoll 1,300 miles northwest of Oahu. Imminent was the most crucial naval battle of World War II—Midway. But in a windowless basement near the fleet’s Pearl Harbor headquarters, codebreakers under Cmdr. Joe Rochefort pored over intercepted Japanese radio traffic. Independent, impolitic, single-minded, Rochefort “left the basement only to bathe, change clothes, or get an occasional meal to supplement a steady diet of coffee and sandwiches,” one officer recalled. “For weeks the only sleep he got was on a field cot pushed...

    The Tabqa operation launched by the Democratic Syrian Forces has entered day 32. SDF is tightening the siege step by step, and the gangs are trapped inside.

    Planning for the final assault on Raqqa, the capital of the Islamic State’s caliphate, had been grinding on for more than seven months. There had been dozens of meetings of President Barack Obama’s top national security team, scores of draft battle plans and hundreds of hours of anguished, late-night debates. There were no good options, but Obama’s top foreign policy advisers were convinced that they had finally settled on an approach that could work — arming Kurdish fighters in northern Syria, current and former U.S. officials said. There was just one problem: The Obama team had deliberated for so long...

With some 60 people in attendance, the Mass was especially offered up for the fallen 1st Cavalry Division soldiers who died in the Battle of Unsanin during the Korean War on November 2, 1950. The Mass was held on the grounds of the 1st Cavalry Division Museum and was also in honor of Fr. Emile Kapaun, 1st Cavalry Division chaplain and Medal of...

    Today is the anniversary of the Battle of Agincourt in 1415, when the English under King Henry V defeated the French on St. Crispin's Day (25 October) of that year. Henry (1387-1422) followed his father King Henry IV to the throne in 1413 and two years later announced his claim to the French throne and rekindled the Hundred Years War by invading Normandy. In a post-battle compromise, Henry later married Catherine of Valois and was named by France's Charles VI as his successor, but Henry's untimely death to illness in 1422 prevented him from assuming the French kingship. This is...

    They came as slaves: human cargo transported on British ships bound for the Americas. They were shipped by the hundreds of thousands and included men, women, and even the youngest of children. Whenever they rebelled or even disobeyed an order, they were punished in the harshest ways. Slave owners would hang their human property by their hands and set their hands or feet on fire as one form of punishment. Some were burned alive and had their heads placed on pikes in the marketplace as a warning to other captives. We don’t really need to go through all of...

    Fragments of an ancient Greek text telling of an invasion of Greece by the Goths during the third century A.D. have been discovered in the Austrian National Library. The text includes a battle fought at the pass of Thermopylae. Researchers used spectral imaging to enhance the fragments, making it possible to read them. The analysis suggests the fragments were copied in the 11th century A.D. and are from a text that was written in the third-century A.D. by an Athens writer named Dexippus. During Dexippus' life, Greece (part of the Roman Empire) and Rome struggled to repel a series of...

    State Department officials are set to release a batch of Hillary Clinton´s private emails Friday amid a contentious court battle over whether the remainder of her records will see the light of day before the Democratic primary begins. Thanks to a Freedom of Information Act lawsuit filed by Jason Leopold, a reporter for Vice News, the State Department was required to complete the publication of roughly 30,000 Clinton emails by the end of January. A schedule laid out in May by Judge Rudolph Contreras of the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia gave the agency eight months to...
