Pentagon: US, allies launched 105 missiles 
in Syria, 'successfully' hit all three targets
by Joseph Weber

{ foxnews.com } ~ The Pentagon said Saturday that the U.S.-led allied missile strikes in Syria successfully hit all three targets... and have “significantly crippled” Syrian President Bashar Assad’s ability to make more chemical weapons. “I think we dealt them a severe blow,” Lt. Gen. Kenneth McKenzie, director of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, said at the Pentagon after the overnight bombing. “We’ve attacked the heart of the Syrians’ chemical weapons program.” McKenize identified the targets as Barzah Research and Development, the Him Shinshar Chemical Weapons Storage Site and the Him Shinshar Bunker Facility. He also said 105 missiles were launched by air and sea. The strikes, in Douma, near Demascus, were launched in response to evidence that the Assad regime killed civilians in an April 7 chemical attack, the latest in country’s years-long civil war...  http://www.foxnews.com/politics/2018/04/14/pentagon-us-allies-launc... .
Sen. Cory Booker Badgers 
Mike Pompero for Beliefs on 'Gay Marriage'
{ rickwells.us } ~ New Jersey Democrat Senator Cory Booker said back in 2013, “Because I want to challenge people on their homophobia... I love seeing on Twitter when someone says I’m gay, and I say, “So what does it matter if I am? So be it. I hope you are not voting for me because you are making the presumption that I’m straight.” It’s unlikely that anyone would vote for Booker for any reason other than that he’s a flaming liberal, or a flaming something else. He’s a nut job vegan who, it seems, could seriously benefit from an Arby’s beef and cheddar and maybe a couple whiskey shots to lessen his tendencies towards reckless hysteria. The laughing stock of a Senator attempts to tie the views of Mike Pompeo on homosexuality to his prospective position as Secretary of State. Booker bizarrely badgers Pompeo for not sharing his own perversion, for not believing that it’s normal for two guys to be poking each other in the backside while claiming to be man and husband...  https://rickwells.us/booker-pompeo-beliefs-gay-marriage/

European Immigration: Nuns Out, Terrorists In
by Douglas Murray
{ gatestoneinstitute.org } ~ The behaviour of government departments in charge of immigration and asylum across Europe repeatedly demonstrate the truth of the late Robert Conquest's maxim... his "third law of politics" -- that the simplest way to explain the behaviour of any bureaucratic organisation "is to assume that it is controlled by a cabal of its enemies". Last week it was reported in the Catholic Herald that a nun who was driven out of the town of Qaraqosh, on the Nineveh plains in Iraq, has been forbidden to visit her ill sister in the United Kingdom. Sister Ban Madleen was among those Christians who were forced to flee the largest Christian town in the area when ISIS entered it in 2014. She was among the thousands of Christians who fled the approaching jihadists and found refuge in Iraqi Kurdistan. There, she set up kindergartens to look after the children of other refugees who had also sought sanctuary in the Kurdish areas. A letter, seen by the Catholic Herald, from the UK Visa and Immigration division at the UK Home Office, stated that Sister Ban had not given evidence of her earnings as a kindergarten principal or shown enough evidence that her order of nuns would fund her visit. In any event, the letter claims that for these reasons, the UK authorities are not satisfied that Sister Ban's appeal to visit her sick sister is genuine. Therefore, she is denied entry, with "no right of appeal or right to administrative review."...

IDF: Gazans hurl explosives, firebombs, 
burn Israeli flags, try to damage fence 
{ timesofisrael.com } ~ Palestinian protesters in Gaza on Friday hurled an explosive device and firebombs at Israeli troops deployed at the border... during what the Israel Defense Forces described as “several attempts” to damage the fence between Israel and the Gaza Strip and cross over into Israeli territory. The Hamas-run health ministry said a 28-year old man had been shot and killed and more than 100 others injured by live fire. Some 10,000-15,000 Palestinians were taking part in violent riots in five locations along the length of the border, the army said. In addition to trying to breach and cross the barrier, they carried out a number of attacks, including throwing Molotov cocktails and explosives at Israeli soldiers...

Iranian drone shot down in 
northern Israel in February was armed with explosives 
by ALEXANDER FULBRIGHT 
{ timesofisrael.com } ~ Israel revealed on Friday that an Iranian drone that entered Israeli airspace in February after launching from an airbase in Syria was carrying explosives... The base was allegedly attacked by Israel on Monday, and reportedly saw the targeting of Iran’s entire attack drone weapons system — prompting soaring tensions between Israel and Iran. The Iranian drone shot down in February was carrying enough explosives to cause damage, military sources said. Its precise intended target in Israel was not known, they said. The February incident marked an unprecedented direct Iranian attack on Israel. Israel’s acknowledgement of the nature of the drone’s mission “brings the confrontation” between Israel and Iran “into the open” for the first time, Israel’s Channel 10 news noted. Israel’s Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu used a speech on Holocaust Remembrance Day this week to warn Iran: “Don’t test the resolve of the State of Israel.”...

DOJ Inspector General 
Michael Horowitz Releases OIG Report on Andrew McCabe
by sundance
{ theconservativetreehouse.com } ~ A picture was initially clear in March once we had the full timeline of the interviews with Andrew McCabe that led to his firing...  This Fox News report only confirms the obvious; however, it’s important to review the events to fully understand the scope of McCabe’s lying and also understand the reason for Lisa Page to be so angry. Remember, Lisa Page was a DOJ attorney assigned to the office of FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe specifically to provide legal guidance. Imagine how pissed off she was when she discovered (July 2017) the Deputy FBI Director who told her to leak a story -on his behalf- to the Wall Street Journal, denied ever telling her to leak the story. It’s no wonder why Ms. Page told FBI Agent Peter Strzok to “never text her again”, and she quit working for the Mueller team several weeks before IG Horowitz informed Mueller about the conspiracy issues which led to Strzok’s removal...  https://theconservativetreehouse.com/2018/04/13/breaking-doj-inspec....

Pentagon: 'We successfully 
hit every target' in Syria
VIDEO:  https://www.dvidshub.net/video/594366/uss-monterey-launches-syria-m... 

by Jamie McIntyre 
{ washingtonexaminer.com } ~ The coalition strike on Syrian chemical weapons facilities was successful, a Pentagon spokeswoman said Saturday morning, saying all the missiles hit their targets.

"I can assure you we took every measure and precaution to strike only what we targeted ... and we successfully hit every target," chief spokesperson Dana White told reporters. "We do not seek conflict in Syria, but we cannot allow such grievous violations of international law."

Lt. Gen. Kenneth McKenzie, director of the Joint Staff, said the strike on Syria involved British, French, and U.S. air and naval platforms in the Mediterranean and Red seas, and the North Arabian Gulf.

U.S. strikes came from Air Force B1-B bombers and Tomahawk cruise missiles fired from the cruiser USS Monterey, destroyers USS Laboon and USS Higgins, and the attack submarine USS John Warner, McKenzie said.

In addition, the Pentagon said Syria’s efforts to shoot down allied planes and missiles were totally ineffective.

“We assess over 40 surface-to-air missiles were deployed by the Syrian regime," McKenzie said. "Most occurred after the last impact of our strike was over."

"Initial indications are we accomplished military objectives without interference from Syria," he said. "I'd use three words to describe this operation, precise, overwhelming and effective.”

The attacks took place at 9 p.m. Friday night Washington time, 4 a.m. in Syria, by U.S., British, and French ships and planes, which fired a total of 105 missiles at three separate targets.

The heaviest strike was against the Barzah Research and Development facility in the Damascus area, which was hit by 57 Tomahawk cruise missiles fired by U.S. warships in the Mediterranean Sea and 19 Joint Air-to-Surface Standoff Missiles launched from American B-1 heavy bombers.

“We destroyed three buildings in Damascus, one of the most heavily defended air spaces in the world,” McKenzie said. “This is going to set the Syrian chemical warfare program back for years.”

Two other facilities near Homs including a command and control bunker were with by British and French missiles.

“The strikes went to the very heart of the enterprise, to the research to development, to storage,” White said. “We are very confident that we have significantly crippled Assad's ability to produce these weapons.”

The Pentagon said it had no reports of civilian casualties and suggested that by indiscriminately firing unguided missiles into the air in a futile effort shoot down allied planes, Syria risked killing some of its own people.

“When you shoot iron into the air without guidance, it will come down somewhere,” McKenzie said. “By contrast, the precise nature of our strike reduced the risk of collateral damage to civilians.”

ALERT ALERT

Romney Handed Shock
Defeat By Own State’s GOP

Mitt Romney is back in state politics, this time in Utah instead of Massachusetts. However, conservatives in The Beehive State aren’t exactly warming up to the 2012 Republican standard-bearer quite the way many people expected they would.

After finishing second in votes at the state GOP convention, Romney will now face a primary in his run for the Senate seat being vacated by Orrin Hatch, Fox News reported.

At the convention in West Valley City on Saturday, Romney polled just behind state lawmaker Mike Kennedy.

Kennedy captured 50.18 percent of the delegate vote compared to Romney’s 49.12 percent.

That means the two will face off in a primary on June 26 to determine who will represent the GOP this fall.

Romney, the first Mormon to head a major party ticket, is considered an extremely popular figure in Utah and was widely expected to have an easy path to the upper chamber.

In a hypothetical matchup with Democrat Jenny Wilson, at least one poll showed Romney up by 46 percent. That’s, uh, slightly more than the margin of error.

However, among party loyalists, Romney isn’t exactly viewed with unalloyed fondness.

The 2012 presidential nominee was always known for being decidedly moderate, particularly on issues of immigration and global trade. There was also the fact that he ran a campaign so bumbling that it almost made Michael Dukakis look good.

And then there was Romney’s war of words with Donald Trump during the 2016 campaign, which likely led many to perceive he secretly wished Hillary Clinton would take the Oval Office.

Trump would later consider Romney as a secretary of state pick, although how serious the president-elect was about appointing him is something we’ll likely never know.

While your average Utah Republican is unlikely to let these slights affect their vote, hardcore party activists probably don’t want another RINO who isn’t exactly known for his rapport with the president in the upper chamber of Congress, no matter how famous he may be.

For his part, Romney tried to put a good spin on the humiliation.

“I’m delighted with the outcome. Did very, very well,” he told KSTU. “On to a good, important primary ahead. This is terrific for the people of Utah.”

Dude, you just lost to a guy nobody has ever heard of. However, Kennedy was happy with the results, and unlike Romney, he had good reason to be.

“I’m a candidate with a compelling life story and a unique set of life circumstances I’d like to use to serve the people of Utah,” Kennedy said.

I have no idea what that story or those circumstances are, but I think the key point here is that he’s not Mitt Romney. If he wants to win, that’s pretty much what he should be focusing on. I can see the billboards now. “Mike Kennedy: Not Mitt Romney.” “Mike Kennedy: He didn’t borrow Ward Cleaver’s haircut.” “Mike Kennedy: Because Utah deserves a senator whose favorite food isn’t buttered noodles.”

Utah’s electorate tends to be less conservative than convention-goers, so it’s unlikely that Romney won’t be the GOP nominee for Senate. However, that’s not a 100 percent certainty — and it wouldn’t be the first time he’s lost to a Kennedy.
