U.S.-backed militias claim big advance against IS in Syria’s Tabqa
April 30, 2017
BEIRUT (Reuters) – U.S.-backed militias said on Sunday they had made a big advance in Tabqa, a strategically vital town controlling Syria’s largest dam, in their campaign to drive Islamic State from its stronghold of Raqqa, 40km (25 miles) downstream.
The Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF), a group of Kurdish and Arab militias, will wait to assault Raqqa until it seizes Tabqa, its military officials have previously said, but it had made only slow progress since besieging the town
Bill makes sanctuary-city officials responsible for illegals’ crimes

COLUMBUS, Ohio – There’s a war taking place between cities and states in America and their new president over whether local authorities should be involved in enforcing the nation’s immigration laws, or whether they can ignore them with impunity.
Nowhere is that new dividing line more evident than in the heartland, in Ohio, where the slogan is “So much to discover.”
In the middle of the controversy now is the contest for the U.S. Senate seat currently held by Democrat

Europe’s bog bodies starting to reveal their secrets
(Smithsonian Magazine) If you’re looking for the middle of nowhere, the Bjaeldskovdal bog is a good place to start. It lies six miles outside the small town of Silkeborg in the middle of Denmark’s flat, sparse Jutland peninsula. The bog itself is little more than a spongy carpet of moss, with a few sad trees poking out. An ethereal stillness hangs over it. A child would put it more simply: This place is really spooky.
I drove here on a damp March day with Ole Nielsen, director of the Silkeborg
Does Free Speech Offend You?
Should offensive speech be banned? Where should we, as a society, draw the line where permitted speech is on one side, and forbidden speech is on the other? Should we even have that line? And should free speech be limited by things like trigger warnings and punishments for microaggressions?

As we all know by now, the pollsters began bashing Trump, after they had established him as the Republican candidate. When they thought Trump was a chump, they tipped the polls in his favor. Once he won the Republican primary
Portland Rose Parade Cancelled Amid THREATS OF VIOLENCE From Anti-Fascists: “You Have Seen How Much Power We Have… Police Can’t Stop Us”
For a bunch of peace loving, tolerance spewing social justice warriors, it sure does appear that the new “progressive” movement in America is rapidly turning to Bolshevik tactics to force their will upon a free and non-violent people.
The latest example of a society on the brink of civil war comes to us from Portland, Oregon, where every year the 82nd Avenue of Roses Business Association kicks off the city’s annual Rose Festival with a family-friendly parade.
Except this year, there will
The Democrats Won This Round, And It Wasn’t Even Close…
We have just witnessed one of the greatest routs in modern American political history. We are still waiting to see if a spending agreement can be reached so that a government shutdown at midnight on Friday can be averted, but whether a shutdown actually happens or not, the Democrats have won this round by a landslide. Even though the Republicans control the White House, the Senate and the House of Representatives, during these budget negotiations the Republicans have backed down on major issue
