    The House on Friday passed an amendment to the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) to block the Trump administration from funding military action against Iran without congressional approval. Most House Republicans opposed the measure, saying it could prevent Trump and the Pentagon from swiftly responding to threats emanating from Iran. However, 27 Republicans broke rank to vote for the amendment. Here are the 27 House Republicans who voted for Friday’s amendment: Rep. Andy Biggs (Ariz.) Rep. Ken Buck (Colo.) Rep. Tim Burchett (Tenn.) Rep. Michael Burgess (Texas) Rep. Ben Cline (Va.) Rep. Michael Cloud (Texas) Rep. Tom Cole (Okla.) Rep....
  • 'Disturbing' new tactics: Mexican cartels use ultralight aircraft to smuggle illegals into U.S.

    Border Patrol agents tracked an ultralight aircraft as it crossed the U.S.-Mexico border and made it 30 miles into the country early Tuesday morning — and when they got to the landing spot, they found two Chinese men who had been smuggled in by the aircraft. The ultralight had escaped, lifting back off and returning to Mexico, but agents say they did manage to nab a Mexican man waiting in a vehicle near the landing zone in southern California, apparently ready to pick up the Chinese men and deliver them to their destination. Experts said they had seen ultralights, small...

    Done with "strategic patience." This is sure to bring about shrieking from the left that Trump “wants war,” and that under no circumstances should we even think about using weapons or the Armed Forces against Bowl Cut Jr.‘s hermit torture paradise. That’s been official U.S. policy for at least the past eight years, and de facto U.S. policy much longer than that, if only because of the presumption that the Norks either have nuclear weapons, or are awfully close to having them, and could turn Seoul into a sheet of glass if given enough of a provocation. Would the U.S....

    Obama impeachment bill now in Congress Declares president's use of military without approval 'high crime, misdemeanor' Let the president be duly warned. Rep. Walter B. Jones Jr., R-N.C., has introduced a resolution declaring that should the president use offensive military force without authorization of an act of Congress, “it is the sense of Congress” that such an act would be “an impeachable high crime and misdemeanor.” Specifically, Article I, Section 8, of the Constitution reserves for Congress alone the power to declare war, a restriction that has been sorely tested in recent years, including Obama’s authorization of military force in...

    I guess U.S. and Western politicians has been treading carefully around the reality of the situation, perhaps for good reason, but does the political class really think the rest of us don’t know what’s happening in Iran right now? The Israelis or agents acting in their behalf or interests are subjecting the Iranian nuclear program to attack. First they hit a base outside of Tehran two weeks ago, taking out the head of Iran’s missile defense force along with a couple dozen other military personnel and some key real estate. Then on Monday they hit a facility near Isfahan that...

    NATO plans campaign in Syria, tightens noose around Iran - Rogozin Topic: Protests in Syria 05:48 05/08/2011 MOSCOW, August 5 (RIA Novosti) NATO is planning a military campaign against Syria to help overthrow the regime of President Bashar al-Assad with a long-reaching goal of preparing a beachhead for an attack on Iran, Russia's envoy to NATO Dmitry Rogozin said. The UN Security Council condemned on Wednesday ongoing violence in Syria and urged the country's authorities to stop using force against peaceful protesters, while saying the current situation in the country has not yet called for NATO interference.

    Have you seen the infomercials for Lipozene? If you haven’t (and thank god you haven’t) Lipozene is a pill that is supposed to cut weight. The hook is that taking this pill will let you cut body fat “without changing your lifestyle.” How remarkable! No personal sacrifices required. No dieting, no exercise. This pill is perfectly targeted at those Wal-Mart shoppers who are so fat that they immediately sink into a motorized scooter upon entering the store. With Lipozene you don’t even have to suffer the indignity of ordering a diet coke with your Big Mac. So you ask, “AJ,...

    One of America's most influential neocons says President Bush is prepared to use military force against Iran if he believes it will acquire nuclear weapons. This past Sunday, Richard Perle, speaking in Israel at the Herzliya Conference, said he had no doubt of President Bush's intentions. "President George Bush will order an attack on Iran if it becomes clear to him that Iran is set to acquire nuclear weapons capabilities while he is still in office," Haaretz reported of Perle's remarks. Perle, a fellow at the American Enterprise Institute, served as chairman of the Bush administration's Defense Policy Board. Perle...

    U.N. Secretary-General Kofi Annan, in a farewell news conference, urged the Security Council on Dec. 19 to push for a negotiated end to the Iranian nuclear crisis, saying military action would be a disaster. "I believe that the council, which is discussing the issue, will proceed cautiously and try and do whatever it can to get a negotiated settlement for the sake of the region and for the sake of the world," Annan said.

    As President Bush reaffirms his intention to thwart Iran’s efforts to develop nuclear weapons, a wide majority of Americans favor military action together with allies to prevent Iran from realizing those efforts, a new Zogby Interactive survey shows. In his State of the Union speech Tuesday night, Bush declared that Iran “is defying the world with its nuclear ambitions, and the nations of the world must not permit the Iranian regime to gain nuclear weapons. America will continue to rally the world to confront these threats.” The comprehensive new Zogby poll shows that 64% of respondents favor joint U.S.-European military...

    President Bush said today that military action was a "last resort" in dealing with Syria if Damascus refused to co-operate with a United Nations investigation into the murder of Rafik Hariri, the former Lebanese prime minister. The UN Security Council is due to be briefed tonight by Detlev Mehlis, the German prosecutor whose report last week found evidence of high-level Syrian involvement in the bombing that killed Mr Hariri and 20 others in Beirut in February. US and French diplomats in New York are leading the drive to have a strongly worded resolution passed by the council next week calling...

    March 11, 2005 EU Shock: Troops May Have to Fight NATO's Secretary General, Dutchman Jaap de Hoop Scheffer, seems to know a thing or two about expectation management. Talking to El Pais yesterday, he sought to remind European leaders that soldiers, to be effective, may sometimes be called on to fight. "Why is the EU creating battle groups?" he asks rhetorically. "It is not just to help rebuild a country. It may be, that to keep the peace, combat is necessary." He also pours some cold water on the distinction, much vaunted within the EU, between the "hard power" (military)...

    Syria assumes Saddam's role, taxes government employees to fund Palestinian terror Syria has begun garnishing the salaries of its government workers to subsidize the Palestinian war against Israel, according to diplomatic sources and published reports. In 2002, the Iraqi government of Saddam Hussein funded Palestinian suicide bombings and other attacks against Israel. At the time, Saddam encouraged Iraqi employees to donate money to the Palestinian war. "This is the first time that the Syrian government uses the same technique used by Saddam Hussein to encourage suicide bombers and their families," the Washington-based Reform Party of Syria said. "It is not...

    COLLEGE STATION, Texas (AP) - British Prime Minister Tony Blair, in the strongest signal yet he would back U.S. military action against Iraq, said Sunday that Saddam Hussein must allow weapons inspectors into his country "any time, any place the international community demands" or face consequences. Blair, ending a weekend of talks with President Bush, urged the international community to confront terrorist regimes with military force if necessary - then called Saddam a brutal leader who must be dealt with. He stopped just short of specifically threatening military action against Iraq. "The regime of Saddam is detestable," the prime minister...
