As if he was't busy enough holding the Trump Regime accountable for Putin-Gate, Ted Lieu was tasked by the Congressional Progressive Caucus to come up with an modern day infrastructure plan that could garner widespread support across the political spectrum. Maybe he's living in an alternative universe with more hours in the day than the rest of us, but he's plan is being widely heralded as brilliant and ready-made for Trump if he really does want to put America first.

Being honest

You know what? I do hate people who keep punctuating their spiel with “You know what?” To be honest I have far more pressing things to worry about right now than BBC bias. I rarely use ‘to be honest’ as it implies one’s honesty is confined to the one exceptional statement (rather than one's norm.) One might be cynical and assume the callers who rang in to the extended Any Answers were all activists. I believe someone said or Tweeted as much. I really hope they were all activists, because if they are indeed representative of the public, you know what? We’re in for that unthinkable c... more »

Joel Wing at MUSINGS ON IRAQ - 15 hours ago
The Iraqi Security Forces (ISF) captured their first neighborhood in their new operation in Mosul. Saha 1 was taken by the Golden Division. The ISF was also said to be in control of 40%to 60% of Zinjali depending upon the source, and there was still fighting in Shifa. On May 28 the second day of the new offensive the ISF claimed they had 60% of Zinjali. That was likely an exaggeration. The Iraqis originally said they were going to liberate all three areas yesterday, but the fighting has been tough and official predictions are always over optimistic.

Red Storm Rising? Report Warns Russian Subs Threaten North Atlantic Gap

Michael Peck at The National Interest - 15 hours ago
*Michael Peck* *Security, Europe* Has the Cold War returned to the Atlantic? Back in the 1980s, when Tom Clancy’s fictional North Atlantic boiled with Cold War naval action, the West really was worried about the Greenland-Iceland-UK, or GIUK, Gap. A glance at a map shows why. The GIUK Gap is one of the most crucial maritime choke points on the globe. It’s the gateway for ships in European waters to enter the Atlantic. During World War II, German U-boats passed through the gap on their way to attack Atlantic and North American shipping lanes. During the Cold War, Soviet subs wou... more »

The American departure from the insane Paris climate treaty has made the behavior of many extreme leftists extraordinary.

Top Trump Officials Attend Globalist Bilderberg Summit. Why?

Alex Newman at rss - 1 day ago
[image: top-trump-officials-attend-globalist-bilderberg-summit-why] Several top officials in the Trump administration are attending this year's secrecy-obsessed Bilderberg meeting, an annual globalist gathering of the world's self-appointed elites and a select group of their “useful idiots.” The reason for their attendance was not immediately clear, nor was it clear whether President Trump had approved their visit. But the implications could be massive, and analysts say Trump should be on guard.

*Michael Peck* *Security, Middle East* Operation Moked changed the course of the 1967 war—and of history. At 7:10 a.m. Israeli time, sixteen Israeli Air Force Fouga Magister training jets took off and pretended to be what they were not. Flying routine flight paths and using routine radio frequencies, they looked to Arab radar operators like the normal morning Israeli combat air patrol. At 7:15 a.m., another 183 aircraft—almost the entire Israeli combat fleet—roared into the air. They headed west over the Mediterranean before diving low, which dropped them from Arab radar screens.... more »

Since its first nuclear test in 1964, China has maintained a relatively small nuclear arsenal designed to hold adversaries’ population centers at risk. Even as it has modernized its conventional forces to “fight and win wars” against first-class militaries like that of the United States, China’s nuclear arsenal is estimated to contain just 264... more »
