The U.S. military launched an air assault on dozens of sites in Iraq and Syria used by Iranian-backed militias and the Iranian Revolutionary Guard Friday, in the opening salvo of retaliation for the drone strike that killed three U.S. troops in Jordan last weekend. The massive barrage of strikes hit more than 85 targets at seven locations, including command and control headquarters, intelligence centers, rockets and missiles, drone and ammunition storage sites and other facilities that were connected to the militias or the IRGC’s Quds Force,

Chances are the Iranians took note of the Biden crew’s “telegraphing” of the coming retaliatory US attacks and got themselves and a lot of their equipment out of the way.

Kabuki theater for the LoFo Democrat voters. Telegraphing what you are going to do only allows the key leadership terrorists to go into hiding. If we were serious about deterrence we would destroy the Iranian nuclear weapons development facilities and target their leadership.

Joe is blowing up empty buildings and calling it a success. A real president would have warned them, and then bombed the places they moved to.

Biden just blew up a lot of vacant lots. Con job to the max. Do you swat bees or do you clean out the hive. There is your answer. Nothing will change because this Administration is corrupt to the core, in my opinion. When Iran gets close to a nuclear weapon, Israel will have to take action. Biden will be buying Iran's oil and sending them $B gifts.

When Israel hits Iran it is to cripple a nuclear weapon site or take out leadership while they drink tea. This was of no effect, except to start a war that the defense industry wants.

Ooooo, that Biden! So sexxy and strong! That's what our liberal media will tell us. It sent a tingle up their collective legs. It's an election year. There must be sacrifices. Who cares if they are Iranians and terrorists. If we are going to have 'sacrifices', Biden should have a temple and alter erected for them. Get it right, Joe!

The media has been showing a lot of photographs and videos of material damage in Iraq and Syria as the result of Biden’s approved retaliatory bombing strikes, but no photographs or videos of dead Iranian military leaders. What does that tell you? Maybe because the Iranians were given time by Biden and his crew to return to Iran before the bombing commenced?

0bama wouldn't allow an actual response against his friends, so they waste ordnance in Iraq and Syria because of stuff Iran did in Jordan to American soldiers who shouldn't even be there in the first place. Makes perfect sense to me, Yeah. Zelensky must be upset at the waste; HE thinks he deserved to have those weapons to use against his enemies. Is the world following a script written by Franz Kafka?

The leftist-media claim a 5-year sentence was harsh. However, in terms of the violations of privacy and law the sentence was a mere slap on the wrist. Charles Littlejohn (38) previously pleaded guilty to stealing and leaking the tax returns of Donald Trump and approximately 2,000 other high-profile people. The tax returns were given to The New York Times and ProPublica, who published the contents of 152 individual tax returns. A former IRS consultant was sentenced to five years in prison for leaking former President Donald Trump’s tax returns as well as the filings of thousands of other wealthy people to the news media.

Former President Donald Trump abruptly walked out on closing arguments at his defamation trial Friday as a lawyer for writer E. Jean Carroll urged a jury to award her client at least $12 million damages, saying Trump had shattered her reputation and her world by unleashing a flood of hate toward her through his public statements branding her a liar. Just minutes after attorney Roberta Kaplan began her closing argument in Manhattan federal court, Trump suddenly rose from his seat at the defense table and walked toward the exit, pausing to scan the packed courtroom as members of the Secret Service leaped up to follow him out.

This time, New Hampshire didn’t surprise. Instead, its famously fickle voters stuck to the script of delivering a ringing ratification of the front-runner, Donald Trump, the former president. His victory over a defiant Nikki Haley cemented his hold on core Republican voters and substantially reduced the chances of any challenger overtaking him. Never before has a presidential candidate won the first two contests on the primary nomination calendar — as Trump has now done — and failed to emerge as the party’s general election nominee, substantially increasing the already quite likely prospect of a rematch between him and President Joe Biden.

Protesters threw soup at the Mona Lisa on Sunday in the latest instance of deliberately shocking climate activism. While some consider disruptive antics such as this alienating to the public, research into social movements shows there is strategy behind it. By combining radical forms of civil disobedience with more mainstream actions, such as lobbying and state-sanctioned demonstrations, activists not only grab the public’s attention, they make less aggressive tactics more acceptable and possibly more successful. I study the role of disruptive politics and social movements in global climate policy and have chronicled the ebb, flow and dynamism of climate activism.

COLUMBIA, S.C. — President Joe Biden easily won South Carolina’s Democratic primary on Saturday, clinching a state he pushed to lead off his party’s nominating process after it revived his then-struggling White House bid four years ago. Biden on Saturday defeated the other long-shot Democrats on South Carolina’s ballot, including Minnesota Rep. Dean Phillips and author Marianne Williamson. His reelection campaign invested heavily in driving up turnout in what it saw as a test drive of its efforts to mobilize Black voters, a key Democratic bloc central to Biden’s chances in a likely November rematch against former President Donald Trump.

It’s election season and the talking heads are all singing the “this will be the most important election of our lifetime” chorus -- for real this time. While this year’s election will certainly be important, I’d argue that 2008 was the most important election in our lifetime. That’s the year in which we were offered a fork in the road, and we chose the “fundamentally transform America” left turn. We’ve just been looking for the “transform it back” off-ramp ever since. However, I am willing to say that 2024 is likely to be the most dangerous election in our lifetime.

Axios on Friday said the president is so enamored of MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” that it “affects how the White House runs — and who Biden listens to.” The report also said Biden “respects” the regular lineup of misfits on “Morning Joe” and he “loves when they applaud his actions.”For readers familiar with the weekday show, which is probably about three of you, recall that “Morning Joe” is co-hosted by Joe Scarborough,

Far too many cultural changes for the worse have happened because far too many people bought the “diversity is our strength” and the “love is love” mantras. Both are cultural poison because both drag your attention away from a person’s character and merit and play to narcissism. Many people of color have come to believe in and rely on their skin color as the sole determinant of their worthiness. Implicit in this belief is that dark skin is good, white skin is bad.
