As part of the continuing battle to neutralize Hezbollah attack tunnels dug from southern Lebanon into northern Israel, the Israel Defense Forces has release a lot of interesting graphics, images and video.

One key part of the so-called Steele Dossier on Donald Trump was a reference to Trump lawyer Michael Cohen attending a summer 2016 collusive meeting in Prague to seek Russian help for Trump’s campaign.

It’s something Cohen repeatedly has denied, including under oath. Cohen not only denies such a meeting, he denies...

Israel continues to rollout Hezbollah attack tunnel discoveries, each to much fanfare for the media and diplomats.

Although Israeli likely knows about almost all the tunnels, it waits a few days between discoveries in order to maximize the exposure and keep the news cycle going.

The “government” is not shut.

A part of the government, about one-fourth, is not funded. Because of the payroll cycle, the people working in those sectors are getting paid, though there may be a delay in payment for non-essential workers for future work until a new funding bill is passed.

The ethnic cleansing of Christians in areas of the Middle East controlled by Islamists continues.

The Gaza strip, under the control of Hamas and other Islamic terrorist groups like Islamic Jihad, has seen its Christian population dwindle under relentless discrimination. We wrote about the plight of Gaza Christians in August 2014,

Bibi Netanyahu’s ruling Likud Party coalition has collapsed.

That means new Knesset (parliament) elections in April.

As with most things in Israeli politics, how this came about is a complicated mixture of local politics. The Jerusalem Post reports:

A “work accident” is a commonly used term to refer to Palestinian terrorists who die by their own hand when explosives or explosive devices they are handling detonate prematurely, or when a tunnel they are constructing collapses.

Hezbollah has constructed numerous attack tunnels from civilian villages in southern Lebanon across the border into Israel.

The purpose of the tunnels was to provide a way to surprise Israel in the next war by quickly infiltrating large numbers of terrorists to capture Israeli towns near the border. This would serve both...

You remember Brenda Snipes, the Broward County Elections Supervisor who provided plenty of drama in the Florida Governor and Senate races.

She came under such withering criticism that soon after the recount was done she submitted her resignation effective January 4, 2019, and seemed destined to ride off into the Florida sunset...

The fight over the wall isn’t about the wall.

It’s also about Democrats hope to hand Trump a “read my lips” moment that will alienate his supporters and damage enthusiasm for 2020.

Elizabeth Warren is trying to dig herself out from the hole she created with her false claim to be Native American for employment purposes and her inept 6-year long cover-up.
