When you hear the word “transparency,” what comes to mind? Maybe words like openness and honesty. But David French, Senior Writer for The National Review, shows how progressive activists, under the guise of “transparency,” are ruining the lives of many good Americans.
Why is it so hard for so many parents and teachers to get kids to do as they are told? Because too many adults have followed some very bad advice. Family psychologist John Rosemond offers some useful tips.
On June 3, 2017, three jihadis drove a van into pedestrians walking across London Bridge. After fleeing the van, the jihadis proceeded to Borough Market, where they stabbed a number of people. As usual, British politician Theresa May is calling such violence “a perversion of Islam.” But does May’s plan for dealing with Islamic violence make sense? Let’s take a closer look.
What is jihad? “Jihad” is an Arabic word meaning “struggle,” and thus may be applied to a variety of forms of physical, emotional, or spiritual exertion. In its religious context, however, the most relevant form of jihad is devoted to violently subjugating non-Muslims. Robert Spencer discusses the issue.
This week an underground water pipe in Kiev, the Ukrainian capital, exploded causing massive damage.
This is the moment an underground water pipe exploded, sending rocks and soil flying and damaging nearby cars and buildings.
The huge bulge of soil exploded into the air after a high-pressure water pipe burst in the Ukrainian capital city of Kiev on Monday.
The spectacular explosion left six square-metre hole in the ground as muddy water flooded the streets.
One woman in a cream-coloured sweater watched the explosion which damaged nearby cars – but incredibly left her unharmed.
The high-pressure water pipes had been used to funnel hot water to housing complexes from central heating plants.
Fortunately the pipe, which normally carries scalding water, was only filled with cold water when it exploded.
Officials said they have been carrying out tests, which is why the water had not been heated.
mmediately after the explosion, the muddy water from the pipeline can be seen flooding the street as another woman stands by watching the destruction in dismay.
Council workers responsible for the communal pipeline say the burst happened on a section of the pipeline that had previously not been in use for 37 years.
As a result they came under criticism when it was pointed out that the normal pipeline would only be expected to operate for 25 years before being replaced, and certainly not be put into service again after a 37-year break. DailyMail
Jerusalem’s Old City was on lockdown as Trump arrived.
Shortly before Donald Trump’s historic visit to Jerusalem’s Old City, the first for a sitting US president, the normally bustling stone alleyways stood deserted and silent, a strange sight for midday on a Monday. From early morning, the only people treading the ancient stones were a few confused tourists, bored shop owners, and hundreds of Israeli police and army forces.
More than 10,000 police officers are taking part in the two-day operation to secure places that Trump will visit, including the Church of the Holy Sepulchre and the Western Wall in the Old City, according to Israel Police spokesman Micky Rosenfeld….
In addition to the security measures that shut down most of the Old City, the Arab-Israeli Higher Follow-Up Committee called a general commercial in the West Bank and Israel for Monday, encouraging the shuttering of all Israeli Arab and Palestinian businesses in solidarity with prisoners hunger striking in Israeli jails.
Even stores in areas that were open to pedestrians, such as the Arab market leading to Damascus Gate, had their gates drawn close and locked, due to the strike and lack of foot traffic. A few tourists filed through the dead streets, their footsteps echoing in the quiet.
Audiovisual analysis of footage recorded at the Turkish embassy on Tuesday sheds light on the verbal commands given by Turkey’s president prior to his bodyguards’ attack on a group of Kurdish protesters.
A professional sound editor named Salih Ferad conducted the analysis on behalf of The Daily Caller.
Using noise reduction and volume enhancement techniques, Ferad determined that Turkish president Recep Tayyip Erdogan’s security detail shouted out the phrases “he says attack” and “come, come, come” as they charged the protesters.
The battle cries came just after Erdogan appeared to relay orders to his personal bodyguard while sitting in the back of a black Mercedes Benz outside of the embassy. DailyCaller

A video shows the fairy godmother EU bringing migrants to Europe on a flying carpet, to Western Europe because Eastern Europe is “racist” and refuses to take them in.
A Européens Sans Frontières (Europeans Without Borders) video sponsored by the European Commission depicts the EU as a fairy godmother bringing migrants to Western Europe after ‘racist’ Eastern Europeans refuse to welcome them.
The short film, titled Eurodame, Help!, was funded in part by the European Commission, the French government, and third-party groups such as the Fondation Hippocrène.
Fondation Hippocrène is a non-profit organisation which has funded a number of projects alongside George Soros‘s Open Society Foundations network, and says its mission is to “promote the construction of genuine European citizenship” by targeting young people. BreitBart
Keith Olbermann, host of GQs political webshow, issued a long statement asking intelligence agencies and governments worldwide to assist in overthrowing President Trump. That is treason. He is nuts.
“I appeal to the intelligence agencies and the governments of what is left of the free world … We the citizens of the U.S. are the victims of a coup,” Olbermann said after Trump fired James Comey from his position as FBI director.
“We need your leaks, your information, your intelligence, your recordings, your videos, your conscience,” said Olbermann. “The civilian government and the military of the United States are no longer in the hands of the people, nor in the control of any responsible individuals on whom you can rely.”
Olbermann called on journalists as well — and intelligence agencies of American allies, including Britain, France, Germany and Australia. But he also appealed to the intelligence services in Russia, “where they must already be profoundly aware that they have not merely put an amoral cynic in power here, but an uncontrollable one, whose madness is genuine and whose usefulness, even to them, is at an end.” YahooNews
