  • Very important update on the Middle East from Amir Tsarfati

    Behold Israel YouTube Channel ^ | 3/29/20 | Amir Tsarfati
    I am posting this on the News Forum because it seemed very newsworthy to me. The first few minutes are about Netanyahu and events in Israel. The important part follows, about U.S. troop movements, the virus in Iran, and what is happening in Syria. There may be some military action there, and it is possible our embassy in Baghdad will be destroyed. Only the last 10 minutes have a religious point of view, so the mods may choose to move this to the Religion Forum. I hope not. Everyone who chooses not to see religious content can just turn it...

    Now a charity with nationwide reach, the nonprofit Code of Vets alleviates hardships faced by thousands of Americans who’ve come home from honorable military service. The cases they handle range from evictions and foreclosures to post-traumatic stress disorder and other medical issues. Yet their effort began not even three years ago as a mere Twitter page, recognizing the life and memory of one devoted patriot, Sergeant Danny Smiley. A Bronze Star Medal recipient who served in Vietnam and was exposed to agent orange, Smiley lost his battle with PTSD at the age of 57. His daughter is Gretchen Smith, herself...
  • U.S. wages retaliatory strikes against Iran-backed militia in Iraq (Top Iranian Gen. killed)

    WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The United States waged a series of precision air strikes on Thursday against an Iran-backed militia in Iraq that it blamed for a major rocket attack a day earlier that killed two American troops and a 26-year-old British soldier. The U.S. strikes appeared limited in scope and narrowly tailored, targeting five weapons storage facilities used by Kataib Hezbollah militants, including stores of weaponry for past attacks on U.S.-led coalition troops, the Pentagon said. In a statement, Iraq’s military said the U.S. air strikes hit four locations in Iraq that housed formal Iraqi police and military units, in...

    The United States led the entire world in reducing CO2 emissions last year while also experiencing solid economic growth, according to a newly released report.  “The United States saw the largest decline in energy-related CO2 emissions in 2019 on a country basis – a fall of 140 Mt, or 2.9%, to 4.8 Gt,” The International Energy Agency (IEA) reported on Tuesday. “US emissions are now down almost 1 Gt from their peak in the year 2000, the largest absolute decline by any country over that period.”“A 15% reduction in the use of coal for power generation underpinned the decline in overall US emissions...
  • Pompeo Stands Up For America, Calls out Europeans for False Claims Against the United States

    MUNICH - Speaking during the Munich Security Conference Saturday morning, Secretary of State Mike Pompeo called out European leaders and others for claiming the West is “westless,” pushed back on allegations that the United States “rejects the international community” and explained that the NATO alliance has been bolstered, not weakened, by President Trump’s demands on allied countries to properly budget for defense.  "I saw the topic for this weekend’s gathering, this idea of 'westlessness' as the core theme for this year’s conference. And I am sure, too, there are many of you who would call yourself here realists, but let me...

    Ancient Faith Ministries ^ | February 4, 2020 | Fr. Stephen Freeman
    I will be far from the first to observe that football in America has a sort of religious cast. If “liturgy” means a “work of the people,” then football is its clearest manifestation in our culture. When a team wins, there is a deep, abiding sense within its fans that “we won.” The constant use of “we” through public discussions indicates that we experience this sport as something in which we “participate” – it is an act of communion. To some degree, it is the most profound act of communion within our culture. Though it is true that far more...

    An ancient habit of Western elites is a certain selectivity in condemnation. Sometimes Westerners apply critical standards to the West that they would never apply to other nations. My colleague at the Hoover Institution, historian Niall Ferguson, has pointed out that Swedish green-teen celebrity Greta Thunberg might be more effective in her advocacy for reducing carbon emissions by redirecting her animus. Instead of hectoring Europeans and Americans, who have recently achieved the planet's most dramatic drops in the use of fossil fuels, Thunberg might instead turn her attention to China and India to offer her "how dare you" complaints to...
  • The Israel-US Model Has Been a Resounding Success

    Whether by accident or by deliberate osmosis, Israel and the U.S. have adopted similar solutions to their existential problems. Before 2002, during the various Palestinian intifadas, Israel suffered hundreds of deaths and thousands of injuries from suicide bombers freely crossing from the West Bank and Gaza into Israel. In response, Israel planned a vast border barrier. The international community was outraged. The Israeli left called the idea nothing short of "apartheid." However, after the completion of the 440-mile border barrier -- part concrete well, part wire fencing -- suicide bombings and terrorist incursions into Israel declined to almost nil....
  • What's At Stake in the Race for 5G Dominance

    The United States and China are racing for dominance in 5G wireless connectivity. The R&D, the inventions, the technological standards and the commercial products developed and deployed in the coming months and years will determine whose inventions bring the world the next generation of wireless technology. Two companies lead in foundational research and development of 5G. Fortunately for the world, U.S.-based Qualcomm has invented and developed superior 5G core technologies. It makes a profound difference which country’s innovations a few key collaborative standards-setting bodies adopt as the foundation of the next-generation wireless infrastructure. 5G won’t be your Mom’s internet.

    Iranian protesters demonstrating against their country’s government were seen avoiding giant Israeli and American flags on the ground during their demonstration, so as to not trample them. Video from student protests in Tehran shows thousands of demonstrators carefully walking around the two giant flags, which had been put on the ground to encourage passersby to trample them in a sign of contempt. Nearly all of the students at Shahid Beheshti University in Tehran, however, can be seen walking around the flags during protests sparked by Iran’s admission that its military shot down a Ukrainian passenger jet, killing 176 civilians shortly...

    Iran's MP, named Abolfazl Abutorabi, has issued a cryptic warning that some are considering a threat to the United States. This comes as a response to President Donald Trump's airstrike taking out a prominent Iranian general. The Iranian MP also stated that Trump's successful strike was being viewed as "a declaration of war," amid his responses. Abutorabi said that they could attack the White House and respond to Trump's actions on American soil. He says they have the power to do so.
  • Is America So Divided Because We Like It That Way?

    Last year, rhetoric about “uniting the nation” was virtually absent from the presidential campaign trail — an observation applied equally to President Trump and all the Democrats vying to unseat him. Henceforth, will the concept of “uniting” make a 2020 comeback? No, and here’s why: The plague of polarization has so thoroughly infiltrated the American psyche that even asking the question, “Who can unite the nation?” sounds like a quaint 20th-century flashback.  That’s because it is from back in May 1999 when then-Texas Gov. George W. Bush famously stated, “I'm a uniter, not a divider," describing his governing style. He...

    At this point, Red and Blue America are not even speaking the same language. We stand near the point of what divorce lawyers term “irreconcilable differences.” In increasingly strident and self-assured tones, the Left believes it is morally superior, intellectually untouchable, and wholly justified in pursuing whatever extralegal, corrupt, or violent methods available to implement their ideology. Talk of a breaking point has been circling conservative circles for some time, with three tangible options arising from the chatter: 1) continued focus on barely winning elections, appointing "conservative" judges that uphold Obamacare, keeping Arizona from going blue, etc.; 2) a “divorce”...

    Granted, that answer could be blowing in the wind; but, nonetheless, each of us in his/her own way must pause with a calm and yet flexible sense of what is actually unfolding in front of us and analyze, for the better or worse, how our individual lives will be affected in both the near term and also the not too distant future of four to five years from now.

    All around us, we are witnessing a national falling apart. It IS different from other periods of turmoil we have experienced. Many can relate to what is going on in the workplace, disrespectful treatment of supervisors and workers (both ways), workers cursing each other, fighting, killing and simply doing little or no work at all. In the public schools, almost all who work in that field want out and are looking to retire asap or find another job. There are very few school districts as an exception and almost no one quits in those districts while everyone is trying to...

    Sen. Elizabeth Warren, a front-runner Democrat in the 2020 presidential race, seems to have a plan for every problem under the sun, from free child care, to free college, to climate change solutions, to “Medicare for all.” However, she has proposed only one plan to pay for all these “free” offerings, which, according to her own estimates, will cost our nation a whopping $52 trillion: raising taxes on the rich. In January, Warren proposed a “wealth tax” of 2 percent on Americans with $50 million-plus in assets and 3 percent on those with assets over $1 billion. After being criticized...
