    Together, the SEALs formed a political action committee called SEAL PAC, and this week, they released a joint campaign ad indicating their runs for Congress. In the ad, the SEALs are shown taking their oaths to defend the Constitution. Photos show the men while enlisted on various missions. “They took a blood oath to protect America,” the ad’s narrator says. “They understand that the only easy day was yesterday. They know that our enemies are no match for their strength and their courage. These former Navy SEALs have protected America from enemies all over the world. Now they have one...

    He “can quote Mohandas Gandhi and Dr. Martin Luther King like teenagers quote Taylor Swift.” Daniel Greenfield, a Shillman Journalism Fellow at the Freedom Center, is an investigative journalist and writer focusing on the radical Left and Islamic terrorism. On Chanukah 2002, four Hercules planes bearing hundreds of people evacuated from Africa landed in Israel. The passengers included Israeli families who had been vacationing in Kenya, some alive, some wounded, and some children returning to their homeland in small coffins. Now, Biden has decided to release Mohammed Abdul Malik Bajabu, an Islamic terrorist who, “participated in the planning and execution...

    Joe Biden campaigned as a moderate elder statesman who could help heal a divided country. The press played up the narrative that Biden put in place a team of professionals and technocrats who would provide real governing expertise as a salve from the chaos of the Trump years. The truth, of course, has been just the opposite. Many Americans are coming to believe that, contrary to the expectations going in, the Biden administration is a rudderless, leaderless, overly ideological mess. Biden did not help himself at his rare press conference Wednesday. When challenged on America's declining faith in the competence...

    Barely two years have gone by since Democrats tried to remove the democratically-elected president of the United States from office by claiming that he might have withheld future security aid to a beleaguered ally, Ukraine, in exchange for an investigation into a political rival. Today, that rival, President Joe Biden, is practically inviting Russia to invade Ukraine, even declaring that Russian President Vladimir Putin “has to do something,” and hoping it is just a a “minor incursion.” [cut] Ultimately, Democrats could not come up with compelling evidence that Trump had committed “Treason, Bribery, or other high Crimes and Misdemeanors,” despite...

    Biden sycophant Joe Scarborough broke out the world's largest lipstick on Wednesday's Morning Joe, and labored mightily to apply it to the pig of Biden's first year of office. Protesting too much, Scarborough claimed he wasn't trying "to help Joe Biden." Right. The video tells a very different story. A frenzied Scarborough waxed ecstatic, remaining in virtually non-stop shout mode as he extolled Biden's record.He began by claiming that Biden's first year was so good, if Trump had had it, "it's all we'd be hearing about."Get the rest of the story and view the video here.

    The family of a U.S. Marine killed in a suicide bombing in Afghanistan is suing Alec Baldwin for allegedly mislabeling his sister as a participant in the Capitol riot Jan. 6, 2021. Baldwin is named in a lawsuit seeking $25 million and alleging defamation, invasion of privacy, negligence and intentional infliction of emotional distress. The lawsuit stems from a post that Baldwin shared on Instagram earlier this month after he gave $5,000 to the widow of a fallen soldier to help her with their newborn daughter. Marine Lance Cpl. Rylee J. McCollum was killed Aug. 26 in Kabul in a...

    The fascists at Twitter bow to the Democrat Party. That isn’t exactly breaking news, but every time they engage in their draconian actions, it acts as a reminder to all conservatives that playing on Twitter is like entering enemy territory. The latest example is the suspension of conservative commentator Todd Starnes. Congressman Eric Swalwell took exception to a Tweet by Starnes, so Twitter sprang into action. According to his post on Gettr: JUST IN: Rep. Eric Swalwell, the California Democrat whose gal pal was a Chinese spy, just got me booted from Twitter. He reported me to Twitter and accused...

  • 'Corrupt' FBI should be 'eliminated' for statement on Texas synagogue hostage taker: Critics

    The FBI is facing backlash on social media after an official said that the Texas synagogue hostage taker’s demands were "not specifically related to the Jewish community." "The FBI is now an organization solely focused on destroying the domestic enemies of the Democratic Party," conservative talk radio show Jesse Kelly tweeted Sunday morning. "Any Republican Congress or Presidential candidate who doesn’t loudly proclaim his intention to massively reform or disband this organization should not be considered. Kelly’s tweet came in response to the Associated Press reporting that FBI officials said "the Texas synagogue hostage taker's demands were specifically focused on...

Scheller's career, his values, and why he chose to expose the failures of America's senior military leaders and America's botched "war on terror" as the hill he would die on. He sacrificed his reputation, his career and his marriage for his Marines and his country.

    With all of the other drama playing out between Russia, China and everywhere else, the media’s focus has once again largely shifted away from the unfolding disaster in Afghanistan. In addition to famine sweeping large parts of the country and western citizens and Afghan helpers still being trapped there, the women’s rights situation in the country has continued to deteriorate under the rule of the Taliban. Families are selling off their daughters just to survive, but even the girls who manage to remain with their families are largely not back to school. Despite the promises that the incoming terrorist government...

    A statement from the governor's office said the blast happened when a cart selling food items struck an old, unexploded mortar shell in the district of Lalopar, in eastern Nangarhar province. The province has been a stronghold for the offshoot of ISIS known as ISIS-K, the terrorist group that claimed responsibility for last year's attack in Kabul that killed 13 U.S. service members and at least 170 Afghans.

    U.S. Vice President Joe Biden on Wednesday issued a sharp warning to the Islamic State group, saying after the United States is done grieving the death of two American journalists, their killers will have to answer for their actions. "They should know we will follow them to the gates of hell until they are brought to justice," he forcefully told an audience at an event on the New Hampshire-Maine border, according to CNN. "Because hell is where they will reside. Hell is where they will reside." Biden opened his remarks in memory of Steven Sotloff, the journalist who was beheaded...

    Not too long ago a video emerged out of Afghanistan showing the country’s new rulers – the Taliban – parading a number of “suicide bombers” at an undisclosed location. In the video, which was aired on Afghan National Television, masked men were seen carrying the Taliban flag and were referred to as “martyrdom-seekers squadron”. The parade showcased everything from suicide vests, explosives, guns, rockets, mines, car bombs and yellow barrels. In the video, the Taliban claimed the weapons were to be used “against invaders and their puppets in defense of independence and dear country”. They then went on to explain...

    The Taliban has ordered clothes shop mannequins to be beheaded because they are “idols” as the brutes continue to wage war on women’s freedoms. Shopkeepers in the western province of Herat in Afghanistan have been told to chop the heads off their mannequins after officials ruled the dummies were sinful “idols”. The worshipping of idols is considered a sin in Islam, which bans the worship of anyone or thing other than Allah – considered to be the only God

    SHEDAI CAMP, Afghanistan (AP) — In a sprawling settlement of mud brick huts in western Afghanistan housing people displaced by drought and war, a woman is fighting to save her daughter. Aziz Gul’s husband sold their 10-year-old into marriage without telling his wife, taking a down-payment so he could feed his family of five children. Otherwise, he told her, they would all starve. He had to sacrifice one to save the rest. Many of Afghanistan’s growing number of destitute people are making such desperate decisions as their nation spirals into a vortex of poverty. Afghanistan’s aid-dependent economy was already teetering...
