'Rapid military escalation' between Iran and Israel involves U.S.

UPDATE: 1/28



Hezbollah chief warns against continuing strikes in Syria... 

Threatens attack on Tel Aviv...

The ground-to-ground missile aimed at the Golan on Sunday, Jan. 20 was fired by Al Qods and made in Iran. IDF army spokesman Brig. Gen. Manelis said in a statement on Monday, Jan. 21 that Sunday’s missile attack on the Golan was aimed at civilians and carried out by the Iranian command – not local militias. It was a Fateh-110 missile, which carries a quarter-of-a-ton warhead to a range of 300km. It was intercepted by Israel’s Iron Dome air defense system.

For the first time, an Israeli military spokesman named the Al Qods Brigades (of the Iranian Revolutionary Guards under the command of Gen. Qassem Soleimani) as being present in the Damascus region. He said the Iranians “had planned the attack in advance for the purpose of deterring Israel from continuing its operations against them,” stressing: “This was an Iranian attempt to attack Israel.”

Early Monday, Jan 21, the IDF struck Iranian Al Qods forces, command centers and ammo dumps in Syria for 50 minutes in volleys of guided missiles from the air and the ground, coming from three directions – Lebanon and two northern Israeli regions of Galilee and the Kineret (Sea of Galilee). The IDF called this its most extensive operation ever against Iranian Al Qods chief Qassem Soleimani’s forces in Syria.


'Rapid military escalation' between Iran and Israel...

Yesterday, Secretary of State Mike Pompeo delivered a video-conference message to the assembly of international economic leadership in Davos.

Q: We have the situation with Iran – where do you see the Middle East moving and what is really the U.S. policy moving forward?

SECRETARY POMPEO: The threat from the Islamic Republic of Iran is very real. You mentioned Yemen. You mentioned Syria. I think you talked about the challenges of Lebanese Hizballah in Lebanon. It’s still the case that Iran is striving to reduce Iraqi freedom, sovereignty, and independence. Those are places where Iran is truly the malign actor.

"We Need More Masculinity, Not Less"

The American Psychological Association has, in its words, issued “its first-ever guidelines for practice with men and boys.” These guidelines “draw on more than 40 years of research showing that traditional masculinity is psychologically harmful and that socializing boys to suppress their emotions causes damage.”

Three observations:

1) The last thing American males need today is less masculinity.

If you need proof, ask women who are looking for a husband whether the men they date exhibit too much masculinity, too little masculinity, or just the right amount. I have talked to hundreds of women on my radio show (every week I have a “Male/Female Hour”), at speeches, and in private who are dating to find a spouse. Not one has said men today are too masculine. Virtually all of them have said men today lack masculinity.

2. This is another example of the most important rule of contemporary life: The left ruins everything it touches.

The left has ruined the arts; the universities; high schools; the nuclear family; mainstream Protestantism, Catholicism, and Judaism; the Boy Scouts; and journalism. And it is now doing the same to the sciences: Universities are increasingly choosing science faculty based on gender and race rather than on scientific expertise.

3. The APA statement makes choosing a psychotherapist simple.

Any therapist who cannot unequivocally condemn the APA statement is unworthy of your time and your money, let alone your psyche.

DeSantis - “I will sign E-Verify into law here in the state of Florida”

E-Verify is an internet based service overseen by the federal Department of Homeland Security in partnership with the Social Security Administration. It allows employers to check the identity information of new hires to see if they are legally eligible to work. 


TALLAHASSEE — Defying Florida's most powerful industries — agriculture and tourism — Gov. Ron DeSantis plans to make good on his campaign pledge to require all businesses in the state to use the federal E-Verify database to assure that new hires are legally eligible to work in this country. 

But getting E-Verify through the Legislature — and a related bill barring so-called 'sanctuary' policies, another favorite with the GOP voting base — could prove challenging for the new governor.

“With the base, it's the number one issue,” said Florida Republican Party Chairman Joe Gruters. “We've got sanctuary cities legislation through the House before,' Gruters added. 'E-Verify is certainly on the governor's list, but it could be a big lift.”

E-Verify and the ban on sanctuary cities, where federal immigration laws are loosely enforced by local authorities, have been opposed by Democrats, who view the legislation as targeting minorities. Other opponents to the E-Verify legislation already are gearing up. Within the Legislature an unusual coalition is uniting against E-Verify. 

Republicans command sizable majorities in both the House and Senate. But industries opposed are major contributors to the state Republican Party and individual lawmakers' campaigns, which typically earns them influence on issues.

Twenty states, including Florida, require E-Verify for some employers. But only four states currently make all employers use it.

"By the content of their character" - Martin Luther King Jr. Day 2019

“Nothing in the world is more dangerous than sincere ignorance and conscientious stupidity.” 

"The function of education is to teach one to think intensively and to think critically. Intelligence plus character - that is the goal of true education."

"I have a dream that my four little children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin but by the content of their character."

"I will fight for you with every breath in my body and I will never, ever let you down. America will start winning again."

JANUARY 20, 2017

"For too long, a small group in our nation’s Capital has reaped the rewards of government while the people have borne the cost.

Washington flourished – but the people did not share in its wealth. Politicians prospered – but the jobs left, and the factories closed.

The establishment protected itself, but not the citizens of our country. Their victories have not been your victories; their triumphs have not been your triumphs; and while they celebrated in our nation’s Capital, there was little to celebrate for struggling families all across our land.

That all changes – starting right here, and right now, because this moment is your moment: it belongs to you. It belongs to everyone gathered here today and everyone watching all across America.

This is your day. This is your celebration. And this, the United States of America, is your country."

"Projections indicate that illegal immigration for next year will reach 600,000 border crossings"


Donald J. Trump@realDonaldTrump

Wow, just heard that my poll numbers with Hispanics has gone up 19%, to 50%. That is because they know the Border issue better than anyone, and they want Security, which can only be gotten with a Wall.

Poll: Trump's Support Among Hispanics Soars in Fight for Border Wall


President Trump's support among Hispanic American voters has soared as he is refusing to buckle to pressure on the border wall. In the latest NPR/Marist/PBS Poll, about 50 percent of Hispanic American voters this month said they approve of the job Trump is doing in the middle of the government shutdown. This is a 19 percentage point increase from last month, when only about 31 percent of Hispanic voters said they approved of Trump.

January 18 marks the 46th annual March for Life held in Washington, D.C.




"They are Republicans and Democrats, religious and secular, feminists and those who shrug off the label. It’s a march for women, by women."

 The rally champions life, especially of the unborn, by challenging Roe v. Wade, the 1973 Supreme Court case that legalized abortion. Each year, the march boasts high-profile speakers and attracts up to hundreds of thousands of marchers – young, old, men, and, yes, women.

The march calls attention first to the humanity of the unborn. But that’s why it’s also a women’s march: the event values all persons equally from their conception, whether male or female.

An Aug. CBS/Refinery29 poll revealed 72 percent of millennial women are likely in favor of abortion restrictions.

Volkswagen to create 1,000 new jobs in Chattanooga expansion

Jobs, Jobs, Jobs

Remember that White House meeting with the big four German automakers [back on December 4th, 2018] that mainstream media ignored? .. Yeah, THAT one. 

Well, combine that US/trade White House meeting with the details within the USMCA (formerly known as NAFTA) auto-sector; mix it up a little with the initiatives and incentives for Trump’s industrial vocational apprenticeship training; give the auto actuaries a little time to crunch the numbers; let the executives settle in…. Then, fast forward a month and currently the big Detroit auto-show is happening.

Voilà … what does Volkswagen announce? 

Volkswagen USA @VW

Investing in electric vehicles – and America.

TENNESSEE – Volkswagen announces Chattanooga will be the home to the company’s first electric vehicle manufacturing facility in North America. This will be the company’s second U.S. facility.

The automaker made the announcement Monday morning at the Detroit Auto show. Tennessee Governor Bill Haslam, Chattanooga Mayor Andy Berke, and Hamilton County Mayor Jim Coppinger were all in Detroit for the major announcement. The project represents an investment of $800 million by Volkswagen and the creation of 1,000 jobs in Hamilton County. 

“As one of Hamilton County’s top employers, these additional 1,000 jobs will have a lasting impact on the region. I thank Volkswagen for its partnership and also applaud the company for its ongoing commitment to education and workforce alignment, which helps Tennessee build a pipeline of talent for years to come,” Haslam said.
