    You might have a hard time relating to Memorial Day, like I used to. Even though my grandfather and father were soldiers in the two World Wars, ours was not a military family. I didn’t know any soldiers, none of my friends were and nobody I knew in my community was one either. Vietnam was over by the time I was in high school. It was a time of relative peace and quiet. Then I moved to Israel in my twenties and got married. Now my own children are soldiers. All of their friends are soldiers. Everywhere I look I...

    How can Christians ever be expected to live in peace with animals like these? An armed Muslim mob stripped an elderly Christian woman and paraded her naked on the streets in an attack last week in which seven Christian homes were also looted and torched in a province south of the Egyptian capital. According to the local Orthodox Coptic church and security officials, the assault in the Minya province village of Karma on Friday began after rumors spread that the elderly woman’s son had an affair with a Muslim woman — a taboo in conservative Egypt. Anba Makarios, Minya’s top...

    The Obama administration’s controversial efforts to sell the flawed Iran nuclear deal continue to reverberate, after Deputy National Security Adviser Ben Rhodes gave an ill-advised interview to The New York Times Magazine in which he bragged about the media “echo chamber” he built in collaboration with like-minded journalists and nongovernmental organizations.

    The silhouette of one of the British Army’s Apache attack helicopters in the skies over Afghanistan is a reassuring sight for coalition forces on the battlefield. Its ungainly shape projects a menacing power that foes are unlikely to stand up to – if they haven’t already fled at the sound of its approaching rotors. But this symbol of British military power won’t be quite so British in the future. It’s almost certain that a forthcoming order for 50 updated Apaches will go to Boeing, the latest in a spate of major defence deals to go to the US. Three weeks...

    Presumptive Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump told California voters Friday that he can solve their water crisis, declaring, “There is no drought.” Speaking at a rally in Fresno, Calif., Trump accused state officials of denying water to Central Valley farmers so they can send it out to sea “to protect a certain kind of three-inch fish.” “We’re going to solve your water problem. You have a water problem that is so insane. It is so ridiculous where they’re taking the water and shoving it out to sea,” Trump said to cheers at a rally that drew thousands.

    A Navy captain from Virginia Beach was testifying before Congress on Thursday about the shortage of flyable fighter jets at Oceana Naval Air Station. As he spoke, word came to military officials seated behind him: A pair of F/A-18F Super Hornets from Oceana had “a mid-air mishap” off the coast of North Carolina, forcing four aviators to eject and sending their $57 million aircraft hurtling into the Atlantic Ocean. Capt. Randy Stearns, commodore of Strike Fighter Wing Atlantic, was briefed on the training accident involving two of his jets during a short recess from the hearing, then returned to the...

    This Memorial Day weekend most Americans will enjoy an extra day off from work enjoying family gatherings, hot dogs on the grill, and ice cold beer. It’s easy to get caught up in spending time with relatives and family, and it’s not unusual for people to forget what this weekend commemorates. So the fact that many will forget, or not think much about what the weekend is truly all about isn’t unexpected. So here’s a little reminder for you. For seventy-seven days in 1968, about five thousand United States Marines were under siege by the forces of North Vietnam and...

  • Inside the Anti-Trump Circus: Here Comes the Summer of Hate

    Wherever Donald Trump goes, protests follow. The media is only interested in these protests when violence or riots erupt — "If it bleeds, it leads" remains the guiding principle of the national press. But if a protest passes more or less peacefully, as most do, the media tends to ignore it — which is a tragedy, because this dismissiveness hides the sobering reality that 2016's anti-Trump protests, even when nonviolent, have already escalated into kaleidoscopic circuses of unhinged hysteria. This report reveals what a typical anti-Trump protest is really like, in all its bizarre end-times glory, for once setting aside...

On Friday, her family filed a federal lawsuit against U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement, San Francisco County's former sheriff, the federal Bureau of Land Management and the man who allegedly fired the deadly shot. "Kate's death was both foreseeable and preventable had the law enforcement agencies, officials and/or officers involved simply followed the laws, regulations and/or procedures which...

    President Barack Obama has made such a mess in the Middle East, that radical Muslims who were once at each other's throat are now forced to unite in order to fight off ISIS. Only a few years ago, the Taliban and the Iranian regime were mortal enemies. They are both run by radical Muslims, but the difference between them is that the Taliban is Sunni where Iran is Shiite. This made them natural enemies struggling with each other for regional hegemony. Tehran even went so far as to support the Northern Alliance in Afghanistan: the group that was fighting against...

And he confronted the cold reality that...

In gratitude, college trustees named that new building after him.

This is a problem? Many union members vote Republican. They were the core of the “Reagan Democrats.” Working people need a growing economy with increasing opportunity. Of course they should vote GOP.

The premise here is that he’s man enough to vote for a woman… so according to the campaign, other men should feel like they aren’t “man enough” unless, like this manly bearded man with manly tattoos, they too vote for Hillary. But this man is also manly enough to appear in giant syphilis ads plastered on public buses all over Portland, Oregon. That’s right. Hillary’s supporters managed to choose the one...

In fact, the U.S. spends more on defense than the next seven countries’ military budgets combined. America’s navy has been branded a “Global Force for Good,” and U.S. military operations around the world are sold to the public as freedom-by-force operations (see: Operation Iraqi Freedom). But what is the truth about America’s foreign policy? Is America truly a benevolent empire hell-bent on raining democracy-by-drone strikes around the world? To answer this question, we looked at America’s arms global deals and came to...

    The secret life of Kim Jong Un’s aunt, who has lived in the U.S. since 1998 By Anna Fifield May 27 at 6:00 AM  NEW YORK — Wandering through Times Square, past the Naked Cowboy and the Elmos and the ticket touts, she could be any immigrant trying to live the American Dream.

But she’s not just any immigrant. She’s an aunt to Kim Jong Un, the young...

    Mitt Romney’s advisers begged him not to go to war with...Trump. After he decided to go ahead, Mr. Trump dismissed him as “lightweight” and “failed candidate.” This week, Newt Gingrich called him “pathetic.” Mr. Romney, sticking to his guns, has become a rare figure in American history—a former presidential nominee openly defying the man succeeding him as his party’s standard-bearer. Sitting at his home on the Pacific Ocean last week, Mr. Romney reflected on the waves he created by attacking Mr. Trump, how his family helped persuade him it was the right thing to do, and how he increasingly finds...

    Just over a month before Slovakia will take the rotating presidency of the European Union, Prime Minister Robert Fico claims that Islam has no place in his country. “”Islam has no place in Slovakia,” Fico told media on Wednesday night saying that the problem of the migrant crisis was not, “that migrants come, but that migrants change the character of our country,” and continued, “we do not want the character of this country to change. Let’s be honest and say that will not happen in Slovakia,” Der Standard reports. The Slovakian Prime Minister has made similar comments in the past...

The ministry said it offered...

    Securing pilot Nadiya Savchenko's release from Russian captivity was a PR coup for Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko but the outspoken woman feted as the nation's "Joan of Arc" may ultimately prove a thorn in his side. While in jail, Savchenko was named a lawmaker in what is now the main opposition party at a time of growing disillusion with the slow pace of reforms and tackling corruption. She has also condemned a key plank of Poroshenko's ceasefire deal with pro-Russian separatists granting them autonomy in eastern Ukraine. "She may just ask all those who are now in power - what...
