    As part of the bilateral military co-operation between Egypt and France, Dassault Aviation, a multinational Rafale fighter manufacturing company named based in France, delivered three Rafale fighters to Egypt on Wednesday which represents the third batch of the total deal of 24 fighters, according to a statement released by the official army spokesperson on Facebook. This Egypt-France deal is the first of its kind. For France to sell Rafale fighters to any country, as was the case in February 2015, was unprecedented. The deal also includes training Egyptian fighter pilots in these imported Rafale fighters in France. The Egyptian pilots'...

    'Alam mo ang mga Amerikano ganun...they are very assertive.' President Rodrigo Duterte is urging Filipinos to stand up for their rights when dealing with unscrupulous officials and staff of the Bureau of Internal Revenue (BIR). Duterte has repeatedly vowed to go after government workers involved in corrupt practices, and he has proven he can put his money where his mouth is, firing scores of them in a presidential term that's barely a year old. On Saturday, he said the tendency of some Filipinos to be non-confrontational emboldens such officials. "You know what is contributing to the graft of our country?...

    Barack Obamas CIA Director John O. Brennan targeted Trump supporters for enhanced surveillance, intelligence sources confirm to GotNews Charles C. Johnson.

The focus was on General Mike Flynn, billionaire Erik Prince, and Fox News host Sean Hannity all of whom had close ties to Trump before and after the November election and had helped the future president with managing his new diplomatic responsibilities. Hannity was targeted because of his perceived ties to Julian Assange, say our...

The Bureau has been caught planning to pay ex-MI6 agent Christopher Steele, who salaciously claimed in a dirty dossier that Donald Trump hired prostitutes to urinate on a bed the Obamas slept on...

    WASHINGTON President Obama ordered his advisers last August to produce a secret report on unrest in the Arab world, which concluded that without sweeping political changes, countries from Bahrain to Yemen were ripe for popular revolt, administration officials said Wednesday. Mr. Obamas order, known as a Presidential Study Directive, identified likely flashpoints, most notably Egypt, and solicited proposals for how the administration could push for political change in countries with autocratic rulers who are also valuable allies of the United States, these officials said.

    Boeing Co. moved closer to extending the life of its combat-jet production lines with the State Departments approval of sales to Kuwait and Qatar worth up to $31.2 billion combined. With that barrier cleared Thursday, the long-delayed deals now go before Congress for final approval. Lawmakers have already been informally briefed, allowing the Pentagon and Boeing to press ahead with completing terms for the government-to-government transaction. Qatar wants to buy as many as 72 Boeing F-15 fighters that together with weapons and support could be worth $21.1 billion, the Pentagon said. However, Qatar could still split any buy between Boeing...

The direct evidence of how the transactions occurred or what was given has not been fully explored. What we do know is that three governments have given to the Clinton Foundation Endowment without any specified goal. Those countries are Saudi Arabia, Oman, and the UAE. Qatar donated to the Cinton Global Initiative with no purpose specified for the money.

    Three weeks ago, when we first reported that Qatar had offered to pay the Clinton Foundation $1 million after a hacked Podesta email disclosed that the ambassador of Qatar “Would like to see WJC [William Jefferson Clinton] ‘for five minutes’ in NYC, to present $1 million check that Qatar promised for WJC’s birthday in 2011”, we said that in this particular case, the Clinton Foundation may also be in violation of State Department ethics codes. Fast forward to today when overnight Reuters reported that the Clinton Foundation has confirmed it accepted a $1 million gift from Qatar while Hillary Clinton...

    Shortened title. Full title: Hillary violated ethics agreement and accepted million-dollar secret donation to foundation from Arab petrostate Hillary Clintons contempt for rules that apply to others could not be clearer. Thanks to Wikileaks, we now know that her ethics agreement with the State Department meant nothing. As Jonathan Adams of Reuters explains: Clinton signed an ethics agreement governing her family's globe-straddling foundation in order to become secretary of state in 2009. The agreement was designed to increase transparency to avoid appearances that U.S. foreign policy could be swayed by wealthy donors.

In a 2014 email made public by Assanges WikiLeaks last month, Hillary Clinton, who had served as secretary of state until the year before, urges John Podesta, then an advisor to Barack Obama, to bring pressure on Qatar and Saudi Arabia, which are providing clandestine financial and logistic support to ISIL [Islamic State, IS, ISIS] and other radical Sunni groups.

    Starting on December 12th in Washington, DC, a meeting is being held that jeopardizes freedom of speech as we currently understand it in the United States. The Obama Administration has invited the 57-member Organization of Islamic Cooperation ("OIC," formerly, The Organization of the Islamic Conference) to a meeting of "experts" to discuss the implementation of a UN resolution ostensibly targeting "religious intolerance." Now, even if by combating "religious intolerance" the resolution were just targeting actual violations of freedom of religion (READ: violating rights, not hurting feelings), it still should raise a few eyebrows that the OIC is behind the resolution...
