The Pentagon announced it will be deploying U.S. troops and military equipment to Middle Eastern allies, Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates, following Iran’s attack on Saudi oil facilities last weekend.“The president has approved the deployment of U.S. forces, which are primarily defensive in nature and primarily focused on air and missile defense,” Defense Secretary Mark Esper said on Friday, as reported by The Hill.“We will also work to accelerate the delivery of military equipment to the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia and the UAE to enhance their ability to defend themselves.”

I prefer they deploy to our border and stop the invasion/attack on our own country.

Here we go again. We never win and we never learn. Someone has a vested interest in keeping us at war all the time. Victory is not a requirement.

How much are the Saudis fronting for this "defensive" assistance? Anything? Sell them the systems, provide technical assistance (preferably through civilian contractors), and let them fend for themselves.

1. The Saudis have Patriot, already bought and paid for. These are the systems which intercept Scuds or the Iranian variant fired from Yemen and the Houthis (Iran backed proxy). 2. Raytheon and Rafael are now partners for co-production of Iron Dome. The US Army will purchase two batteries of Iron Dome to get an initial capability, while Raytheon develops the Iron Dome spinoff named Skyhunter.

While the Democrat National Committee and various Democrat presidential candidates have been struggling to just raise a buck, President Donald Trump has been busy fundraising so successfully that he’s reportedly been breaking records left and right. Case in point: On Sunday the president’s campaign confirmed to TMZ that it’s now sold over a million “Make America Great Again” hats and nearly a $1 million worth of straws. Yes, straws! “Sources with the President’s campaign tell TMZ … sales for the straws — which come in a 10-pack for $15 and are meant to own the libs — have surpassed $850,000.

Rudy Giuliani sparred with Fox News chief White House correspondent John Roberts as he questioned the former mayor about his interactions with the Ukrainian government. Addressing Giuliani's recent fiery interview with CNN anchor Chris Cuomo, Fox News Sunday guest host Roberts played the clip for Giuliani, in which the president's attorney said he did not request Ukrainian officials to investigate Hunter Biden, only to state the opposite moments later."It doesn’t matter, I clarified immediately," Guiliani said after the clip. Giuliani spent much of the interview attacking the coverage of the whistleblower complaint about Trump, and focused on Biden's alleged role in a "cover up."

I once waded through an article on the coming new world order that read like a final exam essay written against the clock for a Hail Mary passing grade[i]. I mention this because of its continuing relevance to shallow thinking regarding matters of great importance – in this case, world order no less! The gist of the article was that with the “old order” collapsed and in disarray, the “new order” faces the danger of fundamentalism – whether Islamic, Christian, or yours, wasn’t clear and didn’t seem to matter. The call, in so many words, was to root out “bad guys” who interfere with “good guys” trying to spread “democracy”

Charismatic, controversial Indian prime minister Narendra Modi is expected to draw a crowd of 50,000 adoring supporters to “Howdy, Modi!,” an event at Houston’s NRG Stadium this morning — as well as U.S. president Donald Trump and thousands of protesters outside.Supporters praise Modi, who was first elected prime minister in 2014, for modernizing India’s economy, addressing climate change and ecological issues, and dramatically improving sanitation for some of the world’s poorest people. But critics say that under Modi’s Hindu nationalist government, human rights, including religious freedom, are endangered. They point to this summer’s crackdown on largely Muslim Kashmir, an autonomous territory between India and Pakistan.

A week after authorities placed a North Carolina high school cheerleading squad on probation for displaying a pro-Trump banner before a football game, school officials abruptly canceled the school's Friday night game due to safety concerns. On Monday, the cheerleading team at North Stanly High School, about 50 miles east of Charlotte, was put on probation by the North Carolina High School Athletic Association after an investigation determined that the squad had violated school policy by posing with a "Trump 2020: Make America Great Again" banner prior to a game on Aug. 30, according to Asheville ABC affiliate WLOS.

House Judiciary Committee Chairman and Democrat New York Rep. Jerry Nadler claimed Friday that the threat of climate change is greater than that of a world war. Nadler’s remarks were made as he spoke in Washington, D.C., at one of several global climate strike protests. “We have to make sure people feel the depth and the immediacy of this crisis, which is approaching us much more rapidly and much worse than the scientists proposed twenty years ago and ten years ago,” Nadler said. “Half measures will not do,” Nadler continued. “We are facing a crisis. If we had a world war, God forbid, the country would mobilize.”
Democrats promote unionizing entire

Cory Booker has become the latest Democratic presidential candidate to back unionizing entire industries by supporting a concept called "sectoral bargaining." The idea dates back to the 1930s and involves the federal government creating union-management committees that would set wages and other work standards. The change, if adopted, would radically shift the business landscape across the U.S. Under sectoral bargaining, unions would be granted enormous power over industries, while businesses would be strictly limited in the workplace policies they could adopt. All workers in an industry would be represented by the union officials on the committees. The New Jersey senator

Sen. Cory Booker’s (D-NJ) 2020 presidential campaign manager warned staffers in a memo that he may not be in the race much longer if the campaign does not raise $1.7 million in ten days. Campaign manager Addisu Demissie issued the warning after pulling in a weaker-than-expected fundraising haul in early September, stating that to stay in the race, the campaign needs the $1.7 million before September 30, the end of the financial quarter. “Without a fundraising surge to close out this quarter, we do not see a legitimate long-term path forward,” Demissie wrote in the Saturday memo to staff and supporters that NBC News obtained.
