    When then-Lance Cpl. Javier Ortiz came home from a secret mission in Syria, the ghost of a dead girl appeared to him in his kitchen. She was pale and covered in chalky dust, as if hit by an explosion, and her eyes stared at him with a glare as dark and heavy as oil.The 21-year-old Marine was part of an artillery gun crew that fought against the Islamic State group, and he knew that his unit’s huge cannons had killed hundreds of enemy fighters. The ghost, he was sure, was their revenge.A shiver went through him. He backed into another...

    Disgraced naval engineer Jonathan Toebbe and his wife, Diana, had tried to sell U.S. nuclear secrets to Brazil in 2020 The identity of the nation the couple had tried to sell classified information had been previously concealed by federal officials Analysts allege Brazil was an 'odd choice' given how close the nations were after Donald Trump and Jair Bolsonaro strengthened the nations' alliance The Toebbes allegedly selected Brazil because they thought the nation would be interested in the technology and could afford their prices They also thought the nation wasn't 'overly hostile' towards the U.S., noting that selling secrets to...

    HARRISBURG, Pennsylvania (WPVI) -- Federal authorities arrested a woman whose former romantic partner says she took a laptop from House Speaker Nancy Pelosi's office during the riot at the U.S. Capitol earlier this month. Riley June Williams was arrested Monday, according to a Justice Department official. It's not yet known when her initial court appearance will be. The FBI said in an arrest warrant Sunday that Williams hasn't been charged with theft but only with illegally entering the Capitol and with disorderly conduct. FBI officials said a caller claiming to be an ex of Williams said friends of hers showed...
  • Soleymani Aftermath: When it comes to Iran, all Rhodes lead back to Obama

    Iranian general Qassem Soleymani was a master terrorist who orchestrated atrocities around the world that claimed thousands of lives, including hundreds if not thousands of Americans. That was the default position after President Trump took out Soleymani last week. The Democrats’ furious reaction overlooked realities about the Iranian regime in general and Soleymani in particular. Israel had also targeted the Quds Force commander, but according to the Kuwaiti Al-Jarida, the Obama administration tipped off the Tehran regime. Soleymani emerged unscathed and continued to spearhead the Islamic regime’s military and terrorist operations. Those were funded by criminal activity, and on that...

    VIDEOAlger Hiss 2.0. The State Department's architect of the disastrous Iran deal has turned out to likely be working as an intelligence asset for the mullahs. Robert Malley, the spiritual son of State Department traitor Alger Hiss. It was no secret as to where Malley's sympathies lay since you can hear him for yourself speaking lovingly about Hamas. Amazingly, despite Malley having being busted months ago, the Biden regime still went ahead with the horrible Iran deal, giving them BILLIONS of dollars, despite the fact that the deal was brokered by a known Hamas sympathizing Alger Hiss.

    Lawmakers want to know if suspended Iran envoy was compromised by the Iran Experts Initiative Republican leaders on the Senate and House foreign affairs committees have opened a joint investigation into Biden administration Iran envoy Robert Malley's links to a secret Iranian government influence network that reportedly includes several of his closest associates, the Washington Free Beacon has learned. Sen. James Risch (R., Idaho) and Rep.

    The Federalist ^ | 10/11/2023 | Arynne Wexler
    It all becomes even more egregious when inspected within the context of the Biden administration’s foreign and domestic policies. Many of the articles surrounding the atrocities of the Hamas attacks this past weekend have referenced the recent $6 billion “deal,” in which the U.S. gave this money to Iran in exchange for five Americans. It already seemed like the worst trade in history. But it’s more nefarious than simply unleashing $6 billion to Iran, a known terrorist state and the most existential threat to the free world. In reality, this one detail hyperlinked quickly in most articles is part of...

    An Iranian spy network, with the help of the U.S. envoy to Iran, was able to penetrate the Biden White House, U.S. State Department and the Pentagon in an effort to influence Iran policy in the Biden Administration and allied governments, reports say. Along with support from the IRGC, the intelligence operation was supported by now-suspended U.S. envoy to Iran Robert Malley, according to Iranian government emails which were reported on by veteran Wall Street Journal correspondent Jay Solomon, writing in Semafor, and by Iran International, the London-based émigré opposition outlet which is the most widely read independent news source...

    In traditional hostage swaps, we get our hostages returned and we return some enemy agents back to their country. For example, we freed a major Russian arms dealer and in return we got a pothead WNBA player. But Biden somehow managed to negotiate an even worse hostage deal with Iran in which the Islamic terror state gets $6 billion and we free 5 Iranians… who then remain in the United States: Why aren’t they all in Tehran? Because the same folks negotiating a new Iran Deal got us the best deal ever. Iran gets $6 billion and we get...

    The Biden administration’s now-suspended Iran envoy Robert Malley helped to fund, support, and direct an Iranian intelligence operation designed to influence the United States and allied governments, according to a trove of purloined Iranian government emails. The emails, which were reported on by veteran Wall Street Journal correspondent Jay Solomon, writing in Semafor, and by Iran International, the London-based émigré opposition outlet which is the most widely read independent news source inside Iran, were published last week after being extensively verified over a period of several months by the two outlets. They showed that Malley had helped to infiltrate an...

    The Biden administration has made a deal with Iran to release $6 billion in frozen funds in exchange for the release of five American prisoners. The agreement issuing a blanket waiver for international banks to transfer sanctioned Iranian money from South Korea to Qatar without fear of U.S. sanctions includes the release of five Iranian citizens held in the U.S. The Iranian-Americans include businessmen Siamak Namazi, 51, and Emad Shargi, 58, along with environmentalist Morad Tahbaz, 67. Secretary of State Antony Blinken signed off on the deal late last week, but Congress was not notified of the decision until Monday,...

    Some experts believe the deal signifies an easing of tensions between Tehran and Washington. Five American prisoners held in Iran flew out of Tehran on Monday officials said, as part of a deal that saw nearly $6 billion in Iranian assets unfrozen. Despite the deal, tensions are almost certain to remain high between the US and Iran, which are locked in various disputes, including over Tehran’s nuclear program. Iran says the program is peaceful, but it now enriches uranium closer than ever to weapons-grade levels. The planned exchange has unfolded amid a major American military buildup in the Persian Gulf,...
