Iran Shows Off New ‘Suicide Drone’

in Latest News

Iran’s elite Revolutionary Guards said on Wednesday they had developed a “suicide drone” capable of delivering explosives to blow up targets at sea and on land.

The new drone is primarily for maritime surveillance and “has not been designed to be armed with missiles,” the Tasnim news agency, which is close to the Guards, reported.

“(But) it can carry heavy payloads of explosives for combat missions to launch suicide attacks.

“Flying at a high cruising speed near the surface of the water, the aircraft can collide with the target and destroy it, either a vessel or an onshore command centre.”

Tasnim said the drone was designed to fly as low as two feet (half a metre) above the water at a speed of around 250 kilometres (160 miles) per hour but could reach an altitude of 900 metres (3,000 feet).

As with previous drone announcements by Iran, the news agency released photographs of the aircraft on the ground, but no footage of it flying.

The Blazes’ Tomi Lahren Is Liked By An Unlikely Liberal

in Latest News

The Blaze’s Tomi Lahren is known as a passionate crusader of conservative causes whose videos frequently viral with her eloquent rebuttals of hot topics of the day. Now comes word that Ms. Lahren has a well-known liberal in her corner and turns out is a fan.

According to The Blaze:

Everything Mark Zuckerberg does is the subject of attention and discussion. The Facebook entrepreneur has become one of the wealthiest and most influential people in America and has even been the subject of a blockbuster film based on the contentious litigation surrounding the founding of the social media giant and his role in it.

As the world comes to the realization of the immense power Facebook has to shape the modern news cycle, Zuckerberg’s true personal beliefs have become increasingly opaque as he struggles to navigate the waters of public controversy in his role as the CEO of one of the most talked-about corporations in the world.

This opacity extends to the “likes” on his personal Facebook page, which have become increasingly bland. As The Ringer notes:

The vast majority of his “likes” are so bland they seem optimized to provoke a bored shrug. He likes his own dog and his own dad’s dental practice page. He likes Oculus (Facebook owns Oculus) and Messenger (Facebook owns Messenger). Obviously, he likes Ender’s Game. He likes McDonald’s. He doesn’t like to choose sides; Zuckerberg likes President Obama and Hillary Clinton, but he also likes Chris Christie and Marco Rubio. He likes Beyoncé and Taylor Swift and Katy Perry, Bill Gates and Steve Jobs. He likes John Mayer!

However, one “like” that stands out from the crowd is that he likes TheBlaze TV personality Tomi Lahren, who is the opposite of a “bored shrug” and who has never been known to not take a side before. As the Ringer notes, Zuckerberg’s “like” for Lahren is not easily explained by the fact that Lahren has had Facebook videos that have gone “viral” because Zuckerberg is not usually a fan of “viral” Facebook videos:

One of her online videos (a rant against Colin Kaepernick) recently went Facebook-viral, with more than 65 million views. That might explain why Zuckerberg has taken an interest in her, although Zuckerberg didn’t like Chewbacca Mom, and he doesn’t have a history of liking other viral video producers. His other “liked” journalists are popular consumer/business tech reporters like Walt Mossberg and Nick Bilton, as well as Jose Antonio Vargas, who wrote that New Yorker profile — and who also criticized Lahren for comparing Black Lives Matter to the Ku Klux Klan. This is a break from form.

When reached for comment, Lahren told TheBlaze, “It’s nice to know that one of the greatest innovators of our time appreciates my First Amendment rights. I rarely agree with Mr. Zuckerberg politically, but he’s built an empire that has allowed me to reach millions. I like you too, Zuck!”

It’s interesting to see how Ms. Lahren responded to Mr. Zuckerberg. She did so with respect and appreciation of his accomplishments in a free society while choosing to acknowledge her First Amendment rights. She disagrees with his politics, civilly, and asserts her right to disagree.

That is what freedom is all about, disagreeing civilly, and allowing both points of view. Now, let’s see if Mr. Zuckerberg allows users on Facebook to be as free as this exchange was.

School Bible Studies Are Controversial But This Satanic Club Is Welcome

in Latest News

Schools are aggressively anti-Christian and Anti-American, so when children wish to create a bible club, there is outrage and debate and its anyone’s guess if the children will be allowed to meet to discuss Christ. But now the Portland Chapter of the Satanic Temple has received permission to offer an after-school club for children.

According to The Blaze:

It’s called the “After School Satan Club.” How nice. It’s aimed at attracting the elementary-age crowd.

Beginning October 19, Sacramento Elementary School will open doors to the satanic activity, which is being billed as lessons “on science and rational thinking,” according to one of the temple’s local chapter heads, Finn Rezz.

Rezz kindly explained to the Oregonian it’s not that the members of the Satanic Temple are truly Satanists, worshiping some sort of spiritual or supernatural entity of the dark side. Rather, he went on, most are simply atheists who view Satan “as an allegory for free thought,” the newspaper said.

The club is solely to foster in its participants a sense of “benevolence and empathy for everybody,” Rezz said.

He also said the After School Satan Club is intended to provide students an option to the “Good News Club,” a get-together arranged by the Child Evangelism Fellowship – a Bible-based group – that’s allowed to meet at the school once a month.

As if the two groups are morally equivalent.

This is the Child Evangelism group’s stated mission, on its webpage: “Child Evangelism Fellowship is a Bible-centered, worldwide organization composed of born-again believers whose purpose is to evangelize boys and girls with the Gospel of the Lord Jesus Christ, disciple them in the Word of God and establish them in a Bible believing church for Christian living. We are committed to helping local churches and individuals evangelize children.”

By comparison, the Satanic Temple touts its mission, on its own website, as “facilitate[ing] the communication and mobilization of politically aware Satanists, secularists, and advocates for individual liberty.” The Satanic Temple also promises to “undertake noble pursuits guided by the individual will.” Really?

Note to Satanic Temple: Have you considered a Marketing 101 class?

But here’s a free thought observance – the Satanic Temple’s name is what it is because it aptly describes all that flows from its members and missions.

Wake up, America. This battle for the soul of our nation – which used to be clearly stated, taught and believed as a country where individual rights come from God, not government – is growing more intense. And the enemy is not only disguising its true intent, cloaking its wickedness in a guise of free thought and with a cloak of kindness – it’s setting sights on the youngest, most malleable minds of all: the children.

And it’s doing it in a way that Satan himself would be proud: by taking a truth and twisting it just enough to cause chaos and confusion – by citing the First Amendment’s religious freedom clause and demanding an equal access to the Christian groups. The end result is predictable: Local governing authorities, afraid of lawsuits, cave to the Satanic Temple’s demands.

Local citizens, even those of faith, ultimately bite their tongues and shake their heads, unsure how to fight off such logical, law-based demands. And atheists, progressives and others with similar mindsets who want nothing more than to tear down the Judeo-Christian fabric of America’s founding and usher in a secular society that breeds contempt for all-things-traditional, moral and virtuous, rub hands with glee, fueled by yet another chink in the nation’s faith-based armor.

It’s unfortunate that those who seek to destroy the foundation of this country are gaining traction in the schools. The message is clear that any group that is not supportive of Judeo-Christian philosophies is supported and embraced by the school systems.

Watch The Hate This Trump Hat Caused On Campus

in Latest News

College campuses are becoming more absurd by the day. You’ve read about safe spaces and Social Justice Warriors and other outrageous happenings on colleges. Now comes a truly disturbing argument between a supporter of Donald Trump and someone who is clearly NOT a supporter of Trump.

As a matter of fact, they are highly disturbed and scared of Donald Trump, or I should say, his hat.

According to The Daily Caller:

Video of two college students getting in a heated argument over one of Donald Trump’s “Make America Great Again” hats went viral on Thursday.

What’s crazy is that students are being supported in this mental illness. Colleges and Universities used to be about diversity of opinion and host a variety of beliefs.

Now, institutes of ‘higher’ learning are about intolerance and compliance. No longer are different views considered, instead, you must toe the party line, as in ‘Communist Party’ line, for that is what this intolerance reminds us of.

Is Turkish President Holding Over 1,500 US Military Hostage at Incirlik?

in Latest News

It appears there is more to the alleged Turkish Coup then meets the eye. Reports are that US military personnel cannot leave, or fly out of (or into) Incirlik Air base in southern Turkey.

It seems the base has been placed on lockdown, and no air strikes, cargo flights or other basic military operations are allowed on the base.

According to The Gateway Pundit:

Incirlik Air Base in Turkey has been placed on lockdown. The base is used by US, UK, Saudi and Turkish forces to run airstrikes against ISIS.

The power at the base was reportedly cut off after the coup attempt Saturday morning in Ankara and Istanbul.

And flights are grounded.

The Erdogan government believes the air base was used to launch attacks during the coup attempt last night.

Now this….
Turkey is holding the US military hostage at Incirlik.

More….

It appears the Erdogan government of Turkey is worried about potential support for the coup from the military base. And with the history of double-cross in the region, it does not seem like an unreasonable concern.

What do you think about Erdogan locking the base down? Is it justified?

Watch Rudy Giuliani’s Powerful Comments Condemning Black Lives Matter

in Latest News

After the recent shootings of 12 Dallas police officers, former NYC Mayor Rudy Giuliani took exception with the Black Lives Matter group, referring to them, indirectly, as a terrorist group. The comments came during a recent episode of CBS “Face the Nation,” Giuliani brought up facts that the media should be covering, recognizing that black men have a 99 time greater chance of being killed by other blacks then by white police officers.

According to The Blaze:

According to Guiliani, a movement like Black Lives Matter makes police officers targets by blaming them for complex social problems.

He noted that all Americans, regardless of race, need to make a greater effort to understand the unique experiences and struggles of their peers.

“Whites have to realize that African-American men … and boys have a fear of being confronted by the police because of these incidences,” Guiliani said, referring to the police-involved killings of two men this week in Louisiana and Minnesota.

He added that another reality black Americans face is violence within the black community.

“A black will die 1 percent or less at the hands of police and 99 percent at the hands of a civilian, most often another black,” he said.

Guiliani noted that every 14 hours in Chicago a black person is killed by another civilian.

“So if you want to deal with this, on the black side, you’ve got to teach your children to be respectful to the police, and you’ve got to teach your children that the real danger to them is not the police,” he said. “The real danger to them … are other black kids.”

“On the white side,” Guiliani continued, “we have to understand that, whether we get it or not, there is this extraordinary fear of the police, and police have to institute a policy of zero tolerance, like we did in New York.” In other words there needs to be mutual trust, respect and cooperation between civilians and law enforcement officials.

After speaking on the point of tolerance, the former New York City mayor shared his belief that a movement like Black Lives Matter only serves to widen that experiential gap between white and black Americans.

“When you say black lives matter, that’s inherently racist,” he proclaimed. “Black lives matter, white lives matter, Asian lives matter, Hispanic lives matter — That’s anti-American, and it’s racist.”

It’s interesting that the former mayor is willing to jump into a position that is not politically correct and subject to much backlash. But, as we’re seeing more in the news, the tide of public opinion is shifting and people have less tolerance of the so-called tolerant Left. Especially when they commit such horrendous acts of violence.
