It seems ages ago, but was just a couple of months ago that controversy swirled around former National Security Advisor Susan Rice’s “unmasking” of names from classified intelligence reports.

We reported on the inconsistencies in Rice’s story on April 3, Susan Rice unmasked? Previously said “I know nothing about” Nunes allegations, and the...

We previously reported how the UN Human Rights Council, with help from anti-Israel groups like Human Rights Watch, was preparing a blacklist of companies doing business in Israel’s “occupied territories” (i.e. what is commonly referred to as the West Bank and East Jerusalem).

This would, of necessity, become a de facto blacklist...

“It was from complications from diabetes,” Nathan Furst said. “Over the last several years it was getting...

You may recall the horrifying murder of Israeli mother Dafna Meir in front of her children. We first reported on January 17, 2016, Reports: Palestinian stabs Israeli woman to death at home in front of children:

This has eerie resemblance to the stabbing to death of the Fogel family in 2011, including 6 month...

In light of the attempted assassination of Steve Scalise and other Republican congressman by a Bernie-loving progressive, and the widespread leftist violence by Antifa and similar groups, it’s worth asking why the American left is so angry.

Larry Elder attempts to answer that question in the video below. The key, he says,...

Well that was quick.

I can’t recall as substantial an assassination attempt against one political party as took place Wednesday morning, June 14, 2017. Certainly there have been individual assassinations and shots fired, such as by Puerto Rican nationalists in 1954, but this was a well planned attempt at mass murder directed...

The shooting of Republican Congressman Steven Scalise and others during a baseball practice has led to a lot of examination of the anti-Trump, anti-Republican incitement from the mainstream left.

While criminal culpability rests with the shooter, there also is no doubt that we are experiencing an unprecedented derangement from establishment Democrats, pro-Democrat...

Watching Attorney General Jeff Sessions testify before the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence was both an inspiring and infuriating experience.

When it comes to inspiration, there’s Jeff Sessions. He did as well as he possibly could in slaying the media and Democratic innuendo machine. For several months we have heard conspiracy theory...

Hamas provoked the 2014 Gaza war through relentless rocket launches at Israel.

In retaliating, Israel faced a dilemma — Hamas used the Gaza civilian population as human shields. Hamas also intimidated journalist into trying to cover up this human shield strategy so that the media focused primarily on the civilians killed or...
