How The US Is Pushing Lebanon Into The Arms Of Iran And Russia

Authored by Elijah Magnier, Middle East based chief international war correspondent for Al Rai Media

Lebanon is readying to receive US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo this week in his first ever visit at a time when the Lebanese economic-political map is being redrawn and while Lebanon is suffering its most serious economic downturn in recent history.

Reasons for the deterioration of the local economy include not only the corruption of Lebanon’s political leadership and lower level administration but also US sanctions imposed on Iran. The latest sanctions are the harshest ever imposed. They will also dramatically affect Lebanon so long as President Donald Trump is in power if Lebanon does not follow US policy and dictates. read more

Why Does The Mainstream Media Purposely Ignore Mass Killings Of Christians Across The Globe?

Authored by Michael Snyder via The End of The American Dream blog,

Last week, when a deranged lunatic gunned down dozens of Muslims at two mosques in New Zealand it suddenly became the biggest news story in the world, and rightly so. 

It was a major news event, and it needed to be reported.  But shouldn’t mass killings of Christians be given the same sort of media coverage?  Sadly, we all know that doesn’t happen.  Whenever there is a mass killing of Christians, it is usually entirely ignored by the mainstream media in the United States, and it doesn’t take a genius to figure out why this is happening.  Those that control the mainstream media consider Christians to be one of the main obstacles to “progress” in this country, and so any story that would put Christians in a positive or sympathetic light simply does not fit any of the narratives that they are pushing. read more

Poll: Losing Amazon Second HQ Deal Was Bad for New York

ALBANY, N.Y.—Most voters in New York think it was bad for the state when Amazon dropped plans to put a second headquarters in Queens and many think U.S. Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez bears blame for the deal falling through, according to a new poll released Monday.

The Siena College poll of registered voters in New York state found that 67 percent of those surveyed said the internet retailer’s decision last month was detrimental to New York. Sixty-one percent support the state and city again offering Amazon up to $3 billion in incentives to create 25,000 jobs if the internet giant reconsiders. read more

Brave Wildlife Workers Risk Their Lives Rescuing Trapped Cougar

A poacher’s trap has left a male cougar trapped by his paw hanging over a tree. This is another painfully awkward video to watch as we see two brave men who take it upon themselves to help free the cougar. Sadly, cougar trapping seasons still legally exist in certain parts of the United States. As many people classify this type of hunting as a sport, so much so that National Geographic has reported in January 2018 that all native eastern cougars were now extinct.

Even though Cougars are a protected animal under the Endangered Species Act. In November of 2007, the federal courts had to reinforce this law as poachers appealed against the banning of poaching in their local area, believing that they should be allowed to hunt on private property. read more

Teen-Slapping Aussie MP Refuses To Resign After Blaming Muslims For NZ Attack

“…as far as I’m concerned, it’s just a statement of fact and for some reason I have upset a lot of people…”

This was the response from Queensland Senator Fraser Anning a day after a teenage protester had egged him for his recent statement implying that Muslim immigration was a reason behind Friday’s mass shooting in New Zealand.

Stating that he was opposed to “any form of violence,” Anning claimed that the atrocity highlighted the “growing fear over an increasing Muslim presence,” in both New Zealand and Australia. read more
