  • Iconic Chaldean church liberated in Mosul

    THE IRISH CATHOLIC ^ | 23 Mar 17 | Unknown
    Chaldean Catholic church whose image announced the fall of Mosul in 2014 has been liberated. When so-called Islamic State (ISIS) swept through Iraq in June 2014, a ‘before-and-after’ picture of the Church of Our Mother of Perpetual help in Mosul emerged showing the crucifix topping the building replaced by the black banner of the terror group. Reports at the time detailed how the Christian community desperately fled the city as ISIS rapidly imposed its rule there. Now, liberating forces have revealed how the Perpetual Help became a central location for that rule. According to emerging reports, ISIS fighters quickly identified...

    Lifesitenews ^ | March 21 2017 | Jonathon Van Maren
    For those of you wondering why I’m writing another column about the alt-right, the reason is simple: Every time I do, people comment to explain why I’m wrong. Those people, some of whom I used to know, are starting to buy what the alt-right is peddling. Some of them are brazen enough to inform me that I, as an active social conservative, should be “smart enough” to realize that “the Jews,” whom they somehow believe to be a homogenous and monolithic group, are responsible for all of the evils Western civilization faces. One of these people even wrote that Richard Spencer had “opened...

    Just over 3 percent of those who backed Donald Trump for president now regret their vote, according to a Mood of the Nation poll from Penn State's McCourtney Institute of Democracy. "Of the 339 poll participants who originally voted for Trump, only 12 (3½ percent) said they would do something different," Michael Berkman, director of the institute and Eric Plutzer, who directed the poll, wrote in The Washington Post. Here are some of the reasons given by those surveyed, according to Berkman and Plutzer: •"I don't like his decisions so far." •"Trump's actions since the inauguration." •"… Trump cannot get...

    The Kurdish-led Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF), with their Syrian Arab Coalition fighters, launched a multi-pronged offensive behind enemy lines on Wednesday to liberate the Tabqah Dam in Syria from ISIS. Apache helicopters, U.S. Marine artillery and special operation troops were part of this operation to drop SDF fighters near Tabqa. “The Coalition supported this offensive with air movement and logistical support, precision airstrikes, Apache helicopters in close air support, Marine artillery, and special operations advice and assistance to SDF leadership,” the US-led coalition said in a statement. “Over the last four months, the Coalition has conducted more than 300 airstrikes...

    Newsweek ^ | 23 Mar 17 | Ed Krayewski
    Despite candidate Donald Trump's welcome, sometimes critical look at long-standing entangling U.S. alliances and arrangements, there was little doubt, given his rhetoric on the war on terror, that he would ramp up military involvement. He redeclared that war in his inaugural, putting a new face and new rhetoric to a decades-long fight. Sixty days into the Trump administration, the new contours of the war on terror are starting to take shape. Foreign Policy reports there is a renewed bombing campaign against Al-Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula (AQAP) in Yemen following a late-January raid the Trump administration insisted was a holdover...

    The Associated Press on Monday released a news making story with a glaring headline claiming that "Most young Americans don’t see Trump as a legitimate leader." A closer look at the survey finds it was conducted by a group financed by billionaire George Soros whose activist arm demands reparations for slavery and "mass incarceration," and has engaged in anti-police activism. In addition, the survey was not representative of the racial and ethnic profiles of young adults. Instead it focused heavily on demographic samples of populations that voted overwhelmingly against Donald Trump.

    Rep. Devin Nunes on Wednesday threw a huge wrench into the middle of the investigations surrounding President Donald Trump, his claims of being wiretapped by his predecessor, and Russia's meddling in the election. And he now finds himself in a central role after making Republicans and Democrats alike scratch their heads over what appeared to be an unprecedented move. Nunes, the chair of the House Intelligence Committee, called for a sudden 1 p.m. press gathering Wednesday, with its subject unclear. But once it began, he fired off what sounded like a bombshell revelation: The intelligence community, he said, had "incidentally...

    If you perked up at news this week that President Trump's approval rating had dipped to 37 percent, according to figures tracked by Gallup, you should un-perk. The truth is, whether Trump is in the 30s or 40s — or even 20s or 50s — simply doesn't matter much. For those of us between the ages of 25 and 100 years old, this is going to take some getting used to. We are accustomed to believing that a president needs to be popular to see his agenda become law. Presidents from Woodrow Wilson to George W. Bush used their political...

    <p>In August 2015 viewers of the first Republican primary debate could be forgiven for thinking that Donald Trump was finished. “You’ve called women you don’t like fat pigs, dogs, slobs, and disgusting animals,” the moderator, Fox News anchor Megyn Kelly, said to him. “You once told a ‘Celebrity Apprentice’ it would be a pretty picture to see her on her knees. Does that sound to you like the temperament of a man we should elect as president?” Trump didn’t act contrite, or statesmanlike, as conventional candidates might have done. Instead, he interrupted Kelly with another nasty dig, about Rosie O’Donnell, and volunteered that he’d probably insulted others, too. Many pundits proclaimed that the response cemented Trump’s unelectability.</p>

A couple of diplomats who were legitimately wiretapped were talking about meeting Trump or his team, Woodward said on "The O'Reilly Factor." However, U.S. intelligence agencies are supposed to comply with "minimization" rules, which protect Americans' names from being published in reports or leaked in any way, he added. "The idea that there was intelligence value was really thin," Woodward said. "You've got this really serious problem potentially of people...

House Speaker Paul Ryan held a long meeting Wednesday night in his office with moderate Republicans.

With the exception of a few members who rushed away without speaking to press, all leaders, including Ryan, ducked out using side exits.

The notices were made public late Friday by Customs and Border Protection, the Homeland Security Department agency that will oversee the project and eventually patrol and maintain the wall. The proposals are due to the government by March 29.

The VIPR officers do not engage in any enforcement actions, and have worked with the department for “more than a decade,” said Metro Transit spokesman Howie Padilla.

    This startling news came during a House Armed Services Committee hearing on the current state of the U.S. Air Force. Chairman Joe Wilson asked right out of the gate about a previously unknown USAF plan to retire the F-15C/D Eagle fleet and replace them with F-16s. The subject of the question itself seemed to be big news to the committee with Congresswoman Vikki Hartzler later asking about what upgrades the F-15C/D was going to get so it could meet modern threats. Obviously the answer is not many if the Air Force is going to retire the jets in the relatively...

    WASHINGTON — A small but potentially pivotal group of House conservatives were largely unmoved Wednesday by appeals from Vice President Mike Pence and House Republican leaders to support a bill to repeal and replace the Affordable Care Act, leaving it unclear whether President Trump and the Republican Congress could fulfill one of their central campaign promises.Speaker Paul D. Ryan has expressed confidence that the House will pass the bill, scheduled for a vote on the House floor on Thursday.

    Defense Secretary James Mattis’ unconventional choices for top Pentagon posts and his reluctance to aggressively push for dramatic increases in the defense budget have rankled Republicans on Capitol Hill who say he’s burning through political capital he needs as he begins reshaping the Pentagon. (Snip) But Republican lawmakers and senior congressional aides said in recent interviews they’re running out of patience with Mattis' staffing decisions, which have disappointed Republican members of the Senate Armed Services Committee hoping to see their ideological allies elevated to senior levels in the Defense Department. Others are grumbling about Mattis’ refusal to advocate a bigger...

    Living in the Western world, to some degree or another we have all accepted that a certain amount of the “Surveillance State” will intrude on our lives; but do you know the real depth of surveillance throughout the US and UK? You might be surprised. recent accusations against the Obama administration and their “wire-tapping” of Donald Trump may in fact only be “accusations”, but if we were to consider the sheer scale of day to day surveillance that takes place on almost every citizen, it would be extremely unlikely that he wasn’t at some point surveilled. There are many forms...

    John F. Kennedy referred to Adolf Hitler as having “the stuff of which legends are made” in a diary entry written shortly after visiting Germany in 1945. Kennedy, then a fresh-faced 28-year-old, traveled to Hitler’s bomb-ravaged Bavarian Berghof residence and Eagle’s Nest mountain retreat during a tour of Germany while serving as a war correspondent for Hearst newspapers. And now excerpts from the diary, which were revealed by People Magazine, have shed light on just how the man who would become president thought about the genocidal German leader. “You can easily understand how that within a few years Hitler will...
