Garland, Texas Foiled First ISIS Attack on American Soil

 By Judi McLeod Full Story

It seems the left hand never tells the right hand what it’s up to down at Foggy Bottom.

Within days of the foiled terrorist attack outside the exhibit of cartoons of the Prophet Mohammed in Garland Texas, comes the news that the United States is offering “big payouts” (“strictly confidential”) to anyone who has “information” on key ISIS leaders.

 By Arthur Weinreb Full Story

The Baltimore Sun reports in the week since protests turned into major riots, violent crime unrelated to the riots has gone up.

 By Yoram Ettinger Full Story

Jewish fighting capabilities were well known in ancient times, as documented by Colonel Richard Meinertzhagen, the Chief Political/Intelligence Officer of the British Mandate in Palestine, who studied ancient Jewish wars, including the 132-135AD rebellion against the Roman Empire. In 1923, he stated (Middle East Diary 1917-1956): "When a Jewish state will be established, Britain shall benefit from air force, naval and land bases... as well as Jewish fighting capabilities... which will secure its long-term regional interests."

Holding the Voters in Contempt
 By Alan Caruba Full Story

Today’s lead story in The Wall Street Journal is about the result of its latest poll regarding Hillary Clinton. It says a lot about why she and the leaders of the Democratic Party must surely hold its core members in contempt. “Support for her among Democrats remains strong and unshaken.”

Largely Ineffective Sanctions Against Iran
 By Sierra Rayne Full Story

For those who believe that sanctions on Iran have made substantial progress towards their stated goals, a recent report by the Congressional Research Service (CRS) is illuminating. The report reviews the sanctions applied against Iran by various entities and then critically examines their actual impacts. The results are not promising for those who believe sanctions are an effective tool with which to exert serious geopolitical pressure.

A Pox on Baltimore
 By Alan Caruba Full Story

Thanks to an infection and the antibiotics taken to rid myself of it, I have had several days of being able to do little more than watch the news on television, listen to it on the radio, and reading about it in my daily edition of The Wall Street Journal. If there was anything else happening in the world, you would not know it because it was 24-7 Baltimore, Baltimore, Baltimore.

Pro-Israel Student Group Meets Opposition from Jewish Leadership
 By Arnold Ahlert Full Story

On Thursday, April 23rd, courage, contempt and cowardice collided during a pro-Israel campus event called "iFest" that took place at the University of California, Irvine (UCI). In the middle of the festivities, the president of the student group Anteaters for Israel (AFI), which organized the three-day event, was berated and brought to tears by the president of the Jewish Federation of Orange County (JFOC), who was among the iFest attendees. According to AFI leadership, the incident affirmed that the organization's decision to purposefully disassociate from the JFOC due to its years of questionable leadership and interference in AFI's pro-Israel activism on campus was the right course of action.

Showdown with Hillary Clinton Over Benghazi
 By Roger Aronoff   --American Politics

The liberal media remain derelict in their duty to vet presidential candidate Hillary Clinton’s record on Benghazi, just as they have abandoned any pretense of holding the Obama administration accountable for the many “phony” scandals including the IRS scandal, Fast & Furious, or even the VA scandal. We have repeatedly exposed the mainstream media’s reluctance to question the Obama administration narrative on issues that might threaten their agenda.

Dust is a Worldwide Pollutant
 By Jack Dini   --Global Warming-Energy-Environment

What connects Earth’s largest, hottest desert to its largest tropical rain forest? For the first time, a NASA satellite has quantified in three dimensions how much Saharan dust makes the trans-Atlantic journey. Scientists have not only measured the volume of the dust, they have also calculated how much phosphorus—remnant in Saharan sands from part of the desert’s past as a lake bed—gets carried across the ocean from one of the planet’s most desolate places to one of its most fertile.

The Truth About Baltimore

The real victim in Baltimore is not Freddie Gray, a repeat loser who eventually died as he had lived, being arrested by the police. The real victims are not the thugs smashing and looting stores.

President Obama on Monday is celebrating his “My Brother’s Keeper” initiative, designed to create and expand “ladders of opportunity” for young blacks, many of whom have no fathers to guide them.

ISIS claims responsibility for Mohammad cartoon shooting in Texas
 By Dan Calabrese   --Crime-Terror-Security

I suppose this was inevitable, just as the shooting itself was inevitable. There may be no way of knowing for sure if ISIS directed the shooters to do what they did - either directly or indirectly - but it only makes sense that they would make this claim. They’re not likely to pay any price for doing so, and they clearly think it serves their interests to create the impression that they’re on the ground in the U.S.
