    A multilateral military treaty between Honduras, Israel, and the United States will see the deployment of 1000 Israeli soldiers at Honduras. They will train the Armed Forces of Honduras (FFAA) and National Police (PN). The main mission of the troops is to train for border protection to stop migrants fleeing Honduras to the U.S., especially children. This would be the second time that Honduras is allowing foreign military personnel in the territory and the first time in Israel’s history to send troops abroad. Apart from border protection, fight against drug trafficking, investigation, and counterterrorism will be offered as well.

    A man convicted of driving around Southern California with bombs he “designed and built to kill” in his car was sentenced on Monday to 19 years in state prison, prosecutors said. “There is no doubt that he had the intent by his possession of these weapons to commit as much mass destruction as he could,” Orange County District Attorney Todd Spitzer said at a news conference, describing 48-year-old Saleh Ali of Salinas as a “wannabe terrorist.” Before hearing his sentence, Ali insulted the judge and made an anti-Semitic remark about the prosecutor, NBC Los Angeles reports. “You’re a cockroach,” Ali...

    Following meetings with top Saudi Arabian leaders in the country's capital on Monday, Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said that one of the Trump administration's top regional goals is to "make sure that the Iranian people get control of their capital," a shot across the bow to a ruling regime that has spent billions to beef up its foreign military and terrorist operations. Pompeo, speaking to reporters in Riyadh, said that the Trump administration's primary goal is to empower the Iranian people to rein in the ruling regime, which has spent a fortune on foreign wars and terror operations as...

    In the recent terrorist attack in Orlando, the US Dept. of Justice ordered the Orlando Police Dept. to scrub, or delete, references to terrorism from the records they had of phone calls with the shooter Omar Mateen. This is clearly proof of an effort by the President and Justice Dept. to cover up and conceal Islamic references spoken by the Orlando shooter. The FBI was ordered to release only partial, not full, transcripts. This proves that President Obama is directly involved in the obstruction of an investigation of terrorism and that he is using a Justice Dept. agency, the Federal...

    The Arizona Senate race is one that Democrats think they can pick up. Sen. Jeff Flake (R-AZ) is unpopular; the latest crop of Republicans that have represented the state have disappointed conservatives and its trending blue. It’s going to be tight. Right now, Republican Congresswoman Martha McSally and Democratic Rep. Kyrsten Sinema are duking it out. Sinema had a commanding lead, but the vicious fight over the Supreme Court nomination of Brett Kavanaugh gave the GOP base a boost, plus the serial bad news from Sinema’s past activist history has turned her Senate run into something of a dumpster fire. There’s...

    Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Patrick Leahy (D-Vt.) will hold a hearing Friday to examine a report that allowed two Bush administration officials to escape any formal punishment regarding their role in drafting the legal justification for the harsh interrogations of detainees. Jay Bybee and John Yoo, two former high-level Bush administration officials who drafted the legal basis for the Bush administration’s treatment of overseas terror suspects, escaped any formal punishment in a long-awaited Justice Department report released Friday evening. Leahy also called on federal appeals court judge Bybee to step down from the lifetime appointment over his role in the...

I'd have them active and ready to go,” he said. “And I'd go back and study them and learn." Cheney commented on the matter following a Senate Intelligence Committee hearing Wednesday in which Trump’s nominee for CIA Director, Gina Haspel, said she would not have the CIA return to...

The human rights organization wrote in a Monday letter that Kavanaugh might have been involved "in issues related to torture and rendition after 9/11." "More information must be made public to determine Kavanaugh’s role in relation to such practices," the organization wrote.

    A British aid worker was killed Friday in a U.N. compound in the West Bank during a gunbattle between Israeli troops and Palestinian gunmen — the first senior U.N. official to die in over two years of fighting. The United Nations accused Israeli soldiers of preventing an ambulance from immediately reaching Iain Hook, a senior manager for UNRWA, the U.N. agency that helps Palestinian refugees. The Israeli army said he was evacuated from the U.N. compound in the Jenin refugee camp as soon as possible. The death occurred hours after Israel reoccupied the West Bank town of Bethlehem for the...
