    Muslim IT scammers took hundreds of thousands of dollars from key Democrats. Democrats being blackmailed proof was undeniable. Yet, they remain free! Months ago we broke the story of a group of brothers who ripped off Congress. Between scams involving a car dealership and overpaid IT jobs they managed to secure for themselves and their wives, they walked away with a boatload of cash. The Abeds wanted the good life, and they were willing to do anything to secure it, including hacking emails and selling political secrets. .. It appears the Anwans stole enough data to put high-level Democrats in...

    The Atlanta Black Star ^ | May 28, 2017 | Arianna Herriott
    In a passionate speech on Feb. 28, 2017, Julius Malema, leader of the Economic Freedom Fighters, encouraged members of South Africa’s Parliament to stand for radical change and take back their land from the whites. Malema encouraged the people to vote in favor of amending the constitution in order to allow the land to be expropriated without compensation. Whites originally took the land during colonialism and still own a majority of it. Malema incited Black people to fight against the white dominance and take back the land that is theirs. This Atlanta Black Star video highlights the EFF’s determined efforts...

    American Thinker ^ | 05/28/2017 | Thomas Lifson
    Media frenzy over Jared Kushner talking to someone in Russia has reached absurd levels. The most heinous products of a hateful imagination are now being offered to the nation’s public as “news” and “analysis.” Based on nothing at all, accusations of treason are now being hurled at Jared Kushner, in a blood sport frenzy. The fact that Jared Kushner has just returned from accompanying his father-in-law on a trip that restructured the power alignment of the Middle East to America’s advantage is a major part of the animus. That he, an observant Orthodox Jew who got his fiancée to convert,...

    Surrounded by the debris and dust of the fallen Twin Towers, Ray Pfeifer slept in his fire truck for a week after the terror attack on September 11, 2001. He would spend the next eight months scouring through the rubble, "searching for friends," he said. But this weekend, he would pay the ultimate price for his heroism. After an 8-year battle, Pfeifer died of terminal cancer, caused by the noxious cloud that hung over the disaster site. For tens of thousands of people, Pfeifer's legacy lives on through the Zadroga Bill, which secured medical care for 9/11 first responders, survivors,...
  • Why Conservatives Still Attack Trump

    Townhall ^ | May 30, 2017 | Dennis Prager
    When people you know well, admire, and who share your values do something you strongly oppose, you have two options: 1) Cease admiring them or 2) try to understand them and change their minds. In the case of my conservative friends who still snipe (or worse) at President Trump, I have rejected option one. The reason -- beside the fact that I simply like many of them -- is what I refer to as "moral bank accounts." Every time we do good, we make a deposit into our moral bank account. And every time we do something bad, we make...
  • Trump’s War With CIA Was Preceded By Kennedy’s

    Fairfield Sun Times ^ | March 28 2017 | Frank Miele
    The New York Times, in a front-page story, said that the president “wanted to splinter the CIA in a thousand pieces and scatter it to the winds.” Whether that quote is accurate or not we don’t know, but it makes sense that after the agency damaged the president’s reputation so badly, he would react with such anger. If you are a student of history, you already know that the president who swore a vendetta against the Central Intelligence Agency wasn’t Donald Trump, but John F. Kennedy, and that although he did not abolish the agency before his assassination, he did...
  • Australian Editor Condemned for 'Revolting' Claim Over Manchester Terror Attack

    Telegraph (U.K.) ^ | 24 MAY 2017 | Jonathan Pearlman
    An editor of a conservative magazine in Australia has been widely condemned for a “revolting" claim that the Manchester bombing should have happened at the headquarters of the ABC, Australia's public broadcaster. In comments that have caused a storm on social media and have been referred to the police, Roger Franklin, the online editor of Quadrant, lamented on the magazine’s website that the victims of the bombing were not panelists who had downplayed the threat of terrorism on Monday night’s Q&A programme, which aired before the Manchester attack. If there had been a shred of justice that blast would have...

    A former regional police chief in China was executed for murder, state media said on Friday, after reports described his victim as a lover more than three decades his junior. Zhao Liping, 65, was found guilty of murder, bribery and possession of firearms and explosives by a court in Taiyuan, the capital of the northern province of Shanxi, in November. China's supreme court announced on Friday that Zhao had been executed after it approved the sentence, according to the official Xinhua news agency.

    The UAE’s Ministry of Finance has announced that it will start implement a selective tax on goods that affect health; this will come into effect from the last quarter of 2017. A 100% tax will be imposed on tobacco, while aerated drinks will be hit by a 50% tax. Several countries and organisations are working hard to fight smoking. The latest effort comes from Britain, which has decided to change the colour of cigarette packs to greenish brown, which experts called ‘the ugliest colour in the world’, according to the BBC. This aims to deter smokers from picking it up.

    Fatah's Revolutionary Council congratulated the "heroic" hunger-striking terrorists for their "victory" over Israel in what the terror organization called a "fight for freedom and honor." In a committee meeting titled "The meeting for freedom and honor in support of our heroic prisoners," the Council expressed its pride and admiration of the prisoners for "standing strong," and said the Fatah leader and their freedom and their families' honor would continue to top Palestinian Authority Chairman Mahmoud Abbas' priority list. The Council also gave full support to Abbas' "nationalist" views and credited him with expressing "Palestinian" values in his meeting with US...

    The Trump administration argued over the weekend that back-channel communications are acceptable in building dialogue with foreign governments, part of an effort to minimize fallout over White House adviser Jared Kushner’s reported discussion about creating a secret conduit to the Kremlin at a Russian diplomatic compound. But some former administration officials on Sunday criticized the use of such secret channels...

There are many stories as to its actual beginnings, with over two dozen cities and towns laying claim to being the birthplace of Memorial Day. There is also evidence that organized women's groups in the South were decorating graves before the end of the Civil War: a hymn published in 1867, "Kneel Where Our Loves are Sleeping" by Nella L.

    SOUTH ORANGE, New Jersey (WABC) -- A group of middle school students from New Jersey caused quite a flap, after half of them refused to take a picture with Republican House Speaker Paul Ryan. It happened Thursday during a field trip to Washington. Reaction from the students' parents are as politically divided as the country. "It's not just a picture," said Matthew Malespina, a student. Matthew says he couldn't go through with it. It didn't matter that Paul Ryan is the Speaker of the U.S. House of Representatives, or that he is third in-line to the presidency. When he and...

    President Donald Trump lambasted Palestinian Authority Chairman Mahmoud Abbas, after the president claims the PA leader deceived him regarding his party’s involvement in anti-Israel incitement. Trump met with Abbas in the PA-controlled city of Bethlehem last week during his two-day visit to Israel. The two held a joint press conference, at which time the president praised Abbas’ commitment to restarting negotiations with Israel for a final status agreement. But according to a report by Channel 2 Sunday evening, the closed-door meeting between the president and the PA chairman was anything but cordial. A US official present during the meeting claims...

    NSA Director Mike Rogers told his staff there is 'damning' evidence Donald Trump and his team colluded with the Russian government, a former agent claims. The shocking information was allegedly relayed to all staff in an agency-wide meeting this week, ex-NSA agent John Schindler claimed Friday. Schindler wrote in the New York Observer the security chief started the meeting by telling staff they were not going to like what he disclosed to them, but he had to: 'tell what (he) had seen'. 'Rogers then added that such SIGINT exists, and it is damning,' the ex-agent wrote. 'He stated, "There is...
