    The U.S. government has traced some of the $1.7 billion released to Iran by the Obama administration to Iranian-backed terrorists in the two years since the cash was transferred. According to knowledgeable sources, Iran has used the funds to pay its main proxy, the Lebanon-based terrorist group Hezbollah, along with the Quds Force, Iran’s main foreign intelligence and covert action arm and element of the Islamic Revolutionary Guards Corps. The U.S. money supplied to Iran as part of an arms settlement dating back to the 1970s also has been traced to Iran’s backing of Houthi rebels seeking to take power...

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu's government is offering the migrants, most of whom are from Sudan and Eritrea, $3,500 and a plane ticket to what it says is a safe destination in another country in sub-Saharan Africa.

    US President Donald Trump today unveiled a US$ 4 trillion annual budget for the fiscal 2019 beginning October 1, proposing US$ 256 million in civilian assistance and US$ 80 million in military aid to Pakistan. The proposal of aid to Pakistan comes weeks after Trump administration suspended nearly US$ 2 billion in security assistance to Islamabad due to its inability to take action against terrorist groups operating from its soil. The White House has said it would consider lifting the freeze if it sees action by Pakistan against terrorist groups. The budgetary proposal says that the military aid depends on...

  • Clint Eastwood Made a Huge Mistake With His Latest Movie

    New York Post ^ | February 8, 2018 | Sara Stewart
    Clint Eastwood is at the top of his game for about 10 action-packed minutes in which he directs a recreation of the events of Aug. 21, 2015, when three young American men thwarted a terrorist attack on a European train. Airman Spencer Stone, Spc. Alek Skarlatos and Anthony Sadler play themselves taking down an attacker (Ray Corasani), who’s armed with a knife, pistol, assault rifle and almost 300 rounds of ammunition. This unusual casting move boosts the action’s emotional heft, and those scenes are a tense, taut piece of filmmaking. But in the remaining 83 minutes of this movie’s brief...

    “The real tools Israel uses today, more important than the most recent strikes, are the terrorists in Syria,” Assad told the Al-Manar TV station, run by his Lebanese ally group Hezbollah. “What they are doing is far more dangerous than what Israel has done recently. “This is the core issue,” he continued. “If we want to fight Israel, we must first deal with its emissaries in Syria.” Israel said the Iranian Revolutionary Guards planned the Thursday attack, and the Palestinian Islamic Jihad carried it out. According to a senior Israeli security official, it was Saeed Izadi, the head of the...

Adam Schiff (D., Calif.) said Sunday that a consequence of the controversial Devin Nunes memo alleging Justice Department surveillance abuses would be people would be more hesitant to report their neighbors to the FBI for being potential fertilizer bombers. ABC host George Stephanopoulos asked Schiff on Sunday about the Democratic concern that the GOP intelligence memo is meant to undermine Robert Mueller's Russia investigation and whether that strategy was working. "I don't think it's working, in the sense that people have a lot of confidence in Bob Mueller," Schiff said. "But it is impeaching the FBI, and the problem...

    Federal officials are testing the government's ability to identify gyrocopters and other small aircraft over Washington, D.C., nearly three years after a Florida mailman flew undetected past the White House before landing his 350-pound rotorcraft at the U.S. Capitol. The Air Force will fly a gyrocopter above the capital area at between 500 and 2,500 feet off the ground, and will fly Cessna and Sky Arrow aircraft between 500 and 8,000 feet above the ground, according to a Tuesday press release. “Using Cessna, Sky Arrow and Gyrocopter aircraft, a variety of flight patterns will be flown five to nine times...

    The establishment media remains committed to the narrative that Muslims are far more often victims of “Islamophobia” than perpetrators of terrorist activity, and so many jihadis in the U.S. get scant press attention. Just in the last week, five Muslims were involved in courtroom proceedings connected with jihad terror activity. Clearly the jihad against Americans, and against the United States as an entity, is ongoing. But you are not likely to hear about these five men from the mainstream news. Ikaika Kang Fox News reported Tuesday that “a Hawaii-based Army soldier was obsessed with videos depicting terrorism beheadings, suicide...

    President Vladimir Putin has promised government backing for Islamic religious education in Russia, in a bid to stave extremism and cater to Russia’s large Muslim community. Up to 20 million Muslims make up Russia’s second-largest religious minority. Thousands of young radicalized Russians have travelled to Iraq and Syria to join jihadist fighters in recent years, making the country the largest source of foreign fighters in the war-torn region. At a meeting with Islamic religious figures on Wednesday, Russia’s president pledged “undoubted support” for a "revival of Islamic education in Russia," the state-run TASS news agency reported. “Traditional Islam is an...

    Court documents recently filed by the government further rock the credibility of Russia Special Counsel Robert Mueller because they show that as FBI Director Mueller he worked to cover up the connection between a Florida Saudi family and the 9/11 terrorist attacks. The documents reveal that Mueller was likely involved in publicly releasing deceptive official agency statements about a secret investigation of the Saudis, who lived in Sarasota, with ties to the hijackers. A Florida journalism nonprofit uncovered the existence of the secret FBI investigation that was also kept from Congress. Under Mueller’s leadership, the FBI tried to discredit the...

    Three separate bloodbaths at Russian schools recently are all linked by the alleged teenage attackers 'worshipping' the perpetrators of the Columbine massacre in the U.S. 18 years ago. In the latest outrage on Friday, axe-wielding masked suspect Anton Bichivin, 16, wore a T-shirt linked to German band KMFDM as did sinister Columbine shooters Eric Harris and Dylan Klebold. The shirt was visible as the blood-drenched Russian was detained in the snow by military police, and in an ambulance as he was rushed to hospital. He and accomplice Alexander Rogalsky, 16, are believed to hold Nazi sympathies and gave themselves fascist...
