Hizbullah Chief:We Are Going to Need Help Launching a War Against Israel

Lebanon's Hizbullah terror gang is normally one of the most active and belligerent terrorist organizations in the world. It is therefore significant that Hizbullah's Secretary-General, Hassan Nasrallah, told a Syrian News TV interviewer that his organization is not capable of carrying out a war against Israel on its own.

U.N. Calls on U.S. and Other Western Nations to Shelter Syrian Refugees

The New York Times writes that Syria's civil war is "creating the worst global refugee crisis in decades," and since the nations adjacent to Syria are already struggling to deal with some four million refugees, the United Nations wants the United States and other Western nations to take in 130,000 Syrians over the next two years.

Japan to Pass China as America’s Biggest Creditor

Americans are routinely told not to worry about how much of our titanic national debt is held by foreigners, but those who do keep track of such things may be relieved to know that our current number-one creditor, our totalitarian geopolitical adversary China, has been surpassed by our considerably less hostile ally Japan. Each of those nations holds a little over 10 percent of America's debt.

Hillary Clinton, Robot Politics, and Burrito Media

They don't have to see Hillary as a fantastic candidate in order to abandon their duty of opposing her, the way they're supposed to oppose everyone who tries for high office, and America is supposed to be better-governed for it. They're on autopilot, running tired ideological programs written decades ago.

ISIS Threatens To Take Iraq’s Ramadi

Every recent news story about the battle against ISIS in Iraq has taken pains to quote the administration's assessment that about 25 percent of the Islamic State's territory has been recaptured. Pushing them out of Tikrit was a significant milestone, although it took considerably longer than planned.

Australian Defense Minister Refuses to Name Head of ISIS

Australian Defense Minister Kevin Andrews refused to speak the name of ISIS leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi during a TV interview this week. Australia is sending another 330 troops to assist Iraqi forces against the Islamic State. Interviewer Leigh Sales notes that the United States put great effort into taking down Osama bin Laden after 9/11, and wonders if similar emphasis could be put on capturing the leader of ISIS.

Hillary Clinton Big On Social Media, Especially With People Who Don’t Exist

Like all efforts to measure true popularity and influence using Internet hits, it's interesting and relevant, because we live in the social media era, but such popularity is also fickle and easily faked. It seems like most politicians have tumbled to the idea of building up "Astroturf" political support, so they can brag about impressive numbers of Twitter followers and Facebook friends.

ISIS Suicide Bomber Blown Sky-High by Kurdish Fighters

One of the most amazing videos to emerge from the Kurds' battle against ISIS is this footage, uploaded to Liveleak by a Kurdish activist, depicts an ISIS suicide car bomber getting blown sky-high by what appears to be the premature detonation of his explosive payload.

Reminder To Media: Helping Hillary Is Not Your Job

Here's the thing, reporters: it's your job to remind Americans that Hillary's under a thick cloud of scandal, and may end up under indictment, for running the off-the-books email server she was plugged into with that BlackBerry. It's your job to remind American voters, over and over again, that Clinton jeopardized national security and deliberately violated transparency laws by doing this.

EU Official Estimates Over 6,000 Jihadis Left Europe to Fight in Syria

"At the European level, we estimate that 5,000-6,000 individuals have left for Syria," European Union Justice Commissioner Vera Jouriva told Le Figaro in a Monday interview, as transcribed by AFP. She went on to say this was a very conservative estimate, because keeping tabs on foreign fighters in the Syrian theater is extremely difficult.

Washington Post bureau chief Jason Rezaian has been languishing in an Iranian prison cell for nearly nine months, with only the most cursory access to legal counsel. The newspaper reports today that Rezaian is having significant problems being allowed to speak to his attorney, and will remain in prison until his trial begins for "espionage."

A senior Iraqi official told Reuters, "We're talking about billions here... This is a new approach for us because of the scale of the challenge we have ahead. Mosul and Nineveh province and Anbar will cost us a lot."

Hillary Clinton: Champion Of the Privileged Political Class

America needs bigger people, which means smaller government; more honesty, which means less political rhetoric; more property, which requires less collectivism; and more liberty, which demands less compulsion, not better-hidden compulsion. A greater burden of law and bigger political initiatives means more of us will be redefined as criminals and losers, and we can't afford that.

‘Reshoring': Will U.S. Manufacturing Make a Comeback?

Call it "reshoring," or "insourcing" if you prefer. By any name, a significant movement of manufacturing back to U.S. shores is exactly what our economy needs. Factory movement overseas has opened a hole in the American job market that nothing else can truly fill, a point stressed in blue-collar populist appeals from both political parties.
