NYT: Israelis Used Stealth Missile on
Nuclear-Site Defenses in Iran Attack

Original Article

We could call this A Tale of Two Facilities. Iran launched an unprecedented direct attack on Israel in retaliation for the targeted strike on IRGC and Hamas commanders. That attack did little damage despite a volley of well over 300 missiles and drones, thanks to the regional defenses and the several hours of lead time necessitated by Iran's launch from its own territory. That demonstrated the facility Iran has for offensive operations in the region. Israel responded by demonstrating its facility, and as the New York Times hears from officials in Iran and the West, the result shocked the Iranians: An Israeli weapon deployed in a retaliatory strike against Iran

Most of the world, especially the fake palestinians who are reciting childish chants and carrying antisemitic signs seem to forget that Iran started this entire violent to and fro with Israel.Their low tech and primitive attack on Israel using guns, knives and gliders has been met with the greatest weapon of all, the human brain, which Iran's leadership seems to possess in minimal quantities.

FTA...' The Iranians don't have the kind of resources to develop effective countermeasures against this new facility of its self-selected enemies. That's because (a) they don't have the resources for it,...' Never fear. The treasonous democrat party and those ensconced in the White House, will make sure the mullahs have the money and the necessary technology to overcome any failings their defenses now have.

My thoughts exactly, #3. Meanwhile, my admiration for Israel continues apace. BTW, what's with all the Ukrainian flag waving in Congress?!? Funny, I don't ever remember seeing any Israeli flag waving..... How about a (new?) law that prohibits waving any flags other than Old Glory in the halls of Congress??

Wow. That's got to make Iran sit up and take notice. All their bluster was just nullified by a single overwhelming attack that was a clear message that this was just a sample of what Israel can do and there is NOTHING Iran can do about it. Consider that the attack was completely stealth, insanely precise, and the target was an essential piece of Iran's defense system. That's going to keep a lot of Israel's enemies awake at night.

We can always hope the mullahs in Iran get the message. However, in the past, the only negotiating tactic the muslim fanatics understand is crushing defeat, humiliation, and expulsion, as witnessed by: Charles Martel at Tours in 732 Battle of Granada in 1492 Sobieski at Vienna in 1683 Kitchener at Omdurman in 1898 Pershing in the Philippines in 1911

Actions have consequences, as Rep. Ilhan Omar's daughter is finding out after being suspended from Barnard College for participating in the ongoing violent, antisemitic protests at Columbia University. Lack of action can have consequences, too, and Columbia's refusal to crack down on the protesters and ensure the safety of its Jewish students is now going to cause them to lose out on some serious cash as billionaire Patriots owner Robert Kraft has announced he will no longer support his alma mater. He says the school is "unrecognizable" to him. Kraft, founder of the Foundation to Combat Antisemitism, made his thoughts clear in a statement Monday:

CBS broke the ice Monday (after a footnote last week then silence) on the rampant anti-Semitism and terrorist sympathizing at Columbia University by pro-Hamas elements of the student body and like-minded fiends, but they went full-blown ‘fiery but mostly peaceful’ as CBS Mornings co-host and Democratic donor Gayle King fretted the “apparently anti-Semitic incidents” overshadowed “peaceful protests”. CBS only spent 49 seconds in an extended news brief delivered by King, which began innocently enough: “Back here in New York, Columbia University has moved all classes on line today as pro-Palestinian demonstrations continue on and near the campus.” King then did her best impression of CNN’s Omar

Rep.

Let me make 2 things clear, my support for Israel is unwavering & your intimidation won’t work,” Carter wrote. “Secondly, the parties responsible will be found & will be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law.”

The NYPD began arresting dozens of student and faculty protestors at New York University Monday night where anti-Israel demonstrators had earlier set up a “Gaza Solidarity” encampment, according to the college’s newspaper. The cops in riot gear cuffed the protesters – who are demanding NYU divest from holdings tied to Israel over the ongoing violence in Gaza — with zip ties and led them to police buses that had arrived near the campus hours earlier, the university’s student-run newspaper Washington Square News reported. Moments earlier, police blasted a message over a megaphone, ordering the protesters to disperse or face arrest for trespassing, according to the newspaper.

(WASHINGTON) — A majority of Supreme Court justices on Monday appeared sympathetic to an Oregon city making it a crime for anyone without a permanent residence to sleep outside in an effort to crack down on homeless encampments across public properties. The case, City of Grants Pass v. Johnson, carries enormous stakes nationwide as communities confront a growing tide of unhoused residents and increasingly turn to punitive measures to try to incentivize people to take advantage of social services and other shelter options. “These generally applicable laws prohibit specific conduct and are essential to public health and safety,” argued the city’s attorney Theane Evangelis during oral arguments, which stretched

Once upon a time, U.S. students were awarded gold stars for achievement; merit was the American way. These days, that celestial system has dimmed -- DEI is lighting the way. Consider the case of Kristina Raevsky, a 14-year-old from Queens. The eighth-grader has a lot to be proud of: Per the New York Post, she's "published four books" and won trophies for debating. Her attendance record is perfect. And where grade point average is concerned, Kristina's killing it -- she boasts an immaculate 100. Amid her pursuit of excellence, the youngster has harbored a dream: to go to Flushing's Townsend Harris High School. But in 2024, accomplishment alone won't cut it.

On Monday, Trump shared a new post on his Truth Social account where he spoke about ongoing pro-Palestinian protests at different colleges, such as Columbia University, and how his supporters should be protesting his legal battles, like his criminal trial in Manhattan.

The great Winston Churchill was reputed to have observed, "If a man at twenty is not a liberal, then he has no heart. If a man at forty is not a conservative, then he has no brain." That's an apocryphal statement, of course, but that doesn't mean it's untrue. Younger people tend to skew more politically to the left than their elders - at least, if you look at the broad strokes. But there is also a political pendulum that swings back and forth; as recently as the '80s, there was a trend wherein it was "hip" for young people with hippie-Boomer parents (full disclosure - not

When you talk about the 2024 race, a lot of it is going to come down to the battleground states. As the Real Clear Politics Average shows, former President Donald Trump is ahead in six of the seven states, with Joe Biden being ahead only in Pennsylvania--and not by much, 46.5 to 46. The only other one that's close is Wisconsin, where Trump is ahead by one point. On average, over all the battleground states, Trump is up by 2.8 percent. In the states other than Wisconsin and Pennsylvania, Trump is up three percentage points or more. On Friday, CNN's Harry Enten had some fascinating things to say

As the dust seems to be settling in the Middle East, who is coming out on top? Perhaps, Reuel Marc Gerecht and Ray Takeyh write in the Wall Street Journal, it is Iran. First, some history: Iran’s theocratic regime has to stand as the most successful imperial power in the Middle East since the British Empire. The comparison would offend the mullahs, but both managed to patrol large swaths of territory by relying on proxies—imperialism on the cheap. Soon after coming to power in 1979, Iran began putting together its collection of terrorists and militants. In Lebanon, it created Hezbollah, established a tight relationship with the Palestine Liberation Organization

A recent video shows a disabled girl confined to a wheelchair being bullied at her middle school. She’s taunted, struck, and tossed around. Those watching and videotaping giggle hysterically. It’s horrible. It also shows sociopathic behavior that is increasingly normalized in America, especially among blacks. This isn’t because blacks are inherently sociopaths. It’s because the Democrat party has deliberately stolen from them the societal institutions that create decency. Note: I am not saying that blacks are inherently criminal, sociopathic, stupid, or whatever other words a Democrat would put into my mouth. To say so—to say that negative traits, values, and behaviors are tied to skin color—would be deeply evil and racist.

The Sound of Music was an iconic movie for my generation. We watched it at movie theaters when made its yearly appearance, then eventually on television. If you missed it, you had to wait a year until it was rebroadcast as there was no video on demand as there is today. It was a fun movie, featuring sing-a-long music, romance, mischief, and a realistic view of jackbooted Nazis destroying a beautiful country. There was no same sex marriage, no transgenders, no mention of global warming, diversity, wokeness, or any other message permeating current movies and television shows.

It's 6pm on January 6, 2025, 20 miles from Washington DC. 'Four years ago, on this very day, Donald Trump tried to steal democracy,' says the 82-year-old Commander-in-Chief, removing his Aviator sunglasses to signal the gravity of his point. 'He's doing it again, folks. We must stop him, no matter what.' From now on, Biden decrees, Trump's Make America Great Again (Maga) movement will be designated a terrorist group.

Nicole Mitchell, a 49-year-old first-term Democrat who reps the Twin Cities suburbs of Woodbury and Maplewood, was taken into custody after a homeowner called police in Detroit Lakes — 220 miles to the northwest — to report an intruder, according to local reports.
