NY Times Embarrasses Itself Again – On Iran-9/11 Ties. No wonder the president calls them ‘fake news.’

The sloppy New York Times is once-again embarrassing itself. In a prominent “fact-check” piece appearing on Friday, cub reporter Zach Montague ripped into Vice President Mike Pence for a series of tweets that described the terror-drenched record of the ex-Quds Force commander, Qassem Suleymani. At issue was Pence’s account of Suleymani’s links to the September 11, 2001 attacks on […]

VIDEO: Qassem Soleimani — Inside the twisted, terrible reign of Iran’s top general

The killing of Iranian terror-meister Qassem Soleimani in a targeted US air strike in Baghdad on Thursday will have a dramatic impact on the stability of the Iranian regime and its ability to conduct oversea terrorist operations. Soleimani was, in many ways, the irreplaceable man. Known as a charismatic leader — indeed, the only charismatic leader in […]

Bye Bye Suleymani — Trump takes out Iran’s terror-meister.

The killing of Iranian terror-meister Qassem Suleymani in a targeted U.S. air strike in Baghdad on Thursday will have a dramatic impact on Iran’s ability to conduct oversea terrorist operations and the stability of the Iranian regime. But the real impact, one can legitimately wager, will be quite different from what you’ve been hearing so […]

Guilty! I Support the Iranian Protestors

As protests continue to wreak havoc in Iran with a breadth and intensity not seen since the 1978 revolution against the Shah, Tehran’s clerical rulers and their Revolutionary Guards enforcers have become increasingly desperate. That could be seen in videos that recently surfaced of the horrific massacre of hundreds of unarmed protestors in Bandar-e Mahshahr, an oil […]

Leaked Memo From Top US Diplomat in Syria – What Could the US Have Done?

As so often, the New York Times headline writers have done their best to obscure the underlying story. William Roebuck, the senior U.S. diplomat on the ground in northeast Syria since 2018, has written a well thought-out, honest, and forward-looking appraisal of the damage done to U.S. interests and to regional security by Turkey in […]

Trump didn’t sell out the Kurds by pulling out of Syria

Critics blasted Trump for allowing Turkey to invade Kurdish-ruled northern Syria, but Kurdish fighters are more realistic about US military support. The national media blasted President Trump’s withdrawal of 50 US military advisors from the Syrian border with Turkey as a “sellout,” a “betrayal” and a “huge strategic blunder.” Let’s be clear: None of them truly care […]

Why the Syria Pullout Makes Sense — America’s president stands firm for America’s national interest.

Washington is awash with dire predictions following President Trump’s “surprise” announcement late Sunday night to pull out the remaining 500 or so U.S. advisors currently in northern Syria. But as the President tweeted on Monday morning, he was elected to end our “ridiculous endless wars,” which are costing us huge amounts in blood and treasure. […]

THE WEISSMANN DOSSIER: Who really wrote the Mueller Report?

Anyone who watched more than a few minutes of Wednesday’s painful hearings with former Special Counsel Robert Mueller discovered a sad truth the Democrats and many in the media continue to hide: Mueller neither wrote his report nor did he master the content of it. Repeatedly during the day, the former FBI director stumbled over […]

Pompeo is right to warn Iran — Don’t target Americans

Secretary of State Mike Pompeo cancelled a scheduled visit with German Chancellor Angela Merkel on Tuesday to make an unplanned stopover in Baghdad, where he delivered a dramatic message to the Iraqi government about the need to protect Americans on Iraqi soil. Citing recent intelligence that Iran was planning “imminent” attacks on U.S. persons or U.S. assets […]

Iranian defector facing persecution for exposing Iran’s involvement in 9/11

A defector from Iranian intelligence has been sentenced to 17 years in prison by the Republic of Georgia on charges initiated by the government of the Islamic State of Iran, in retaliation for his efforts to expose the Iranian government’s involvement in the September 11, 2001 attacks. I went to an Appeals Court hearing of […]

Netanyahu expected to remain Israel’s prime minister, after getting a boost from Trump

It’s all but certain now that Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu will continue in office for a fifth term, following Tuesday’s national election. His main opponent – retired Lt. Gen. Benny Gantz of the Blue and White Alliance – conceded defeat Wednesday. Israeli media report that Netanyahu’s Likud Party will be able to put together a coalition government […]

Ukrainian Prosecutor Reopens Corruption Case Involving Biden

The chief prosecutor in Ukraine recently revealed that he’s reopening a corruption probe into Ukraine’s largest private gas company that could have profound implications for the presidential aspirations of former Vice President Joe Biden. The company, Burisma Holdings, appointed Biden’s son, Hunter, to its board of directors in 2014, and reportedly paid him more than $3 million […]

For Islamic Iran, It’s Hunting Season—Again

Two weeks ago, Dutch Foreign Minister Stef Blok blew the whistle on the Iranian regime, accusing it of hiring local hit teams to assassinate prominent Iranian dissidents living in Holland. Ahmad Mola Nissi, 52, was a leader of the Arab Struggle Movement for the Liberation of Ahwaz, a group that seeks to create a breakaway Arab province […]

Here’s the biggest security threat now facing President Trump… and it’s not what you think.

OBAMA’S WAR IS UPON US How the ex-Radical-in-Chief created a security vacuum that Iran rushed to fill. Donald Trump has a name for everything and everyone, from Crooked Hillary to Little Rocket Man, who for a time became his best friend. Will he call the next region-wide conflagration in the Middle East, when it breaks out, Obama’s […]

LIFE AFTER ISIS: Christians slowly return to Northern Iraq.

I have just returned from a week-long fact-finding mission to Mosul and Christian towns in Northern Iraq, to assess the status of U.S.-led reconstruction efforts after the battle to defeat ISIS. During that time, I met with hundreds of local residents who returned to find their homes burned and looted by ISIS, or bombed into […]
