“Over the years, Israel has initiated dozens of archaeological digs to prove Jewish heritage at the site, and to challenge the rights of Christians and Muslims in Jerusalem. It is part of Israel’s Judaization of Palestine, erasing historic icons that reflect the heritage of Christians and Muslims, and augmenting and exaggerating the heritage of anything Jewish” – Ray Hanania, “Outrage from Israel, when it is convenient” – Arab News, July 26th, 2017.

“North Korea has successfully produced a miniaturized nuclear warhead that can fit inside its missiles, crossing a key threshold on the path to becoming a full-fledged nuclear power, U.S. intelligence officials have concluded in a confidential assessment… (this) comes on the heels of another intelligence assessment that sharply raises the official estimate for the total number of bombs in the communist country’s atomic arsenal.” – Joby Warrick, Ellen Nakashima and Anna Fifield, “North Korea now making missile-ready nuclear weapons, U.S. analysts say” – Washington Post, August 8th, 2017.

“In the great film Casablanca, the Police Chief tells his deputy to ‘round up the usual suspects’ after a crime has been committed. There was no effort to investigate or search for evidence. He had a standard set of criminal types that he harassed on a regular basis in order to appear to be doing something. Socialists respond to every economic crisis by rounding up one usual suspect – capitalism.” – Roger McKinney, “Macronomics will not save France” – Affluent Christian Investor, August 3rd, 2017.

Press, “Missing teens likely seeking better life: school director” – Toronto Sun, July 24th, 2017.

“Understanding the leftist mind is an inexact science but the complaints seem to center around the idea that in the Trump era trying to eliminate an ethno-culturally non-diverse criminal organization is somehow racist, no matter how horrifying and brutal the group’s crimes against innocent Americans may be… Left-wingers promote so-called sanctuary cities which are magnets for illegal aliens and the crime that accompanies them. They don’t care about the damage such policies do to American society.” – Matthew Vadum, “Trump -v- MS-13“ – FrontPageMag, August 2nd, 2017.

“Multiculturalism has led not to integration but to segregation… A culture of victimhood sets group against group, each claiming that its pain, injury, oppression, humiliation is greater than that of others” – Jonathan Sacks, Britain’s [former] chief rabbi, quoted by Tobias Langdon in “The egomaniacs’ ball: Chutzpah, ethnocentrism and the separation solution” – The Occidental Observer, July 26th, 2017.

“Just now, the usual damned fools in Washington and New York contemplate wars against Russia in Syria, China in the South China Sea, North Korea, Russia in the Ukraine, and Iran. All of these offer superb chances for disastrous and unexpected consequences.” – Fred Reed, “Milk-bar Clausewitzes, bean curd Napoleons: In the reign of Kaiser Don” – Fred On Everything, August 3rd, 2017.

“Defense Department investigators have found ‘potential security risks’ in a program that recruits foreigners into the US military in exchange for citizenship, according to a new report… ‘The program has been replete with problems, to include foreign infiltration – so much so that the Department of Defense is seeking to suspend the program due to those concerns,’ Republican US Representative Steve Russell of Oklahoma said in a committee hearing last week… The program is currently not accepting new applicants as it undergoes a security review.” – Keith Griffith, “Pentagon investigators find ‘security risks’ in Obama-era program to recruit foreigners into US military” – Mail Online, August 2nd, 2017.
