Everything you need to know about Hezbollah in under six minutes

It’s great when PragerU tackles international issues. The conservative media company does a great job educating about domestic issues, but they truly shine when bringing knowledge to the people about important international concerns. Today’s topic: Hezbollah.

Iran’s militant terrorist wing has been the biggest threat to Israel and the United States for years, quietly staying under the radar to American citizens? US mainstream media tends to ignore Hezbollah as much as possible, perhaps because as the most vocal anti-Israel organization they get the occasional free pass.

Americans need to know what Hezbollah is and what they’re doing. We can’t rely on television news to bring the information to light. Thank you PragerU and Tony Badran.

Mastermind behind Iranian parade attack allegedly killed

Mastermind behind Iranian parade attack allegedly killed

Iranian state television is reporting the mastermind behind last months’ terrorist attack on a military parade in Ahvaz, Iran. 25 people were killed, including a dozen members of Iran’s Revolutionary Guard.

An alleged member of the Islamic State, Abu Zaha, was killed by Iran along with four other militants in Diyala province in Iraq. They gave no indication of how the operation was carried out. Though the Islamic State claimed responsibility for the terrorist attack, many believe it was the Ahwaz National Resistance, an Iranian separatist group that also claimed responsibility.

Iran Claims It Has Killed Mastermind of Deadly Attack on Parade

https://www.algemeiner.com/2018/10/16/iran-claims-it-has-killed-mastermind-of-deadly-attack-on-parade/The Sunni Muslim Islamic State group, in decline in Iraq and Syria, considers the majority Shi’ite Muslims of Iran to be heretics.

Iranian Ayatollah Ali Khamenei has said those responsible for the parade attack were paid by Sunni Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates and that Iran will “severely punish” those behind the violence.

My Take

It behooves Iran to get their justice from the Islamic State rather than Ahwaz National Resistance. ISIS is an easy operator to blame for the attacks whether they did it or not. It’s believable and presents an enemy that isn’t as close to home as Ahwaz National Resistance. It also allows them to maintain their narrative that ISIS is funded by Saudi Arabia and the UAE.

We’ll likely never know if Zaha was really the mastermind behind the attack. If similar attacks happen in the coming months, it’s likely that Ahwaz National Resistance is behind them, not ISIS.

Portland, Oregon: The canary in a coal mine for the violent Left

Portland Oregon The canary in a coal mine for the violent Left

We cannot afford to be provoked into what we despise.

Several disturbing videos have surfaced over the past few days of the fascist ‘anti-fascists’ taking over the streets of Portland, Oregon. In what would appear to be the leading edge of the violent left attempting to recreate the vehicular murder in Charlottesville Virginia.

One video from the group shows them ‘Directing traffic’ by threats and intimidation on the city’s streets while Law enforcement passively stands by. [Language Warning, Language Warning,Language Warning,]

In another video, the violent Leftists surround a man’s vehicle in an attempt to recreate an incident. When he refuses to head their ‘orders’ they chase him down, hypocritically yelling to call for Law enforcement. He was later ‘doxxed’ by the thugs in black.

The Takeaway

Keep in mind that the are the actions of people losing the argument. The Kavanaugh confirmation closed one more door to the forced implementation of the Left’s Socialist national agenda. That is the primary reason they are becoming increasing unhinged. They are embracing that failed ideology because they have no other place to go. Trying to buy votes with enticements that can never come to fruition is the act of a desperate political movement.

It is important to remember that we do not rise to these blatant provocations. We have the better ideas that will see us through the storm.

7 Russian intelligence officers indicted for hacking sports-related organizations

7 Russian intelligence officers indicted for hacking sports-related organizations

Russians really want to win at international sports. As they’ve demonstrated in the recent past, they’re willing to let their players use performance enhancing drugs to achieve success. Now, it’s come to light that they may also be willing to hack the agencies that look into performance enhancing drugs.

Oh, and they also may have hacked sites related to Syrian chemical weapons use.

Hacking charges have been filed by the Justice Department against seven Russian intelligence officers.

U.S. Charges 7 Russian Intelligence Officers With Hacking 40 Sports And Doping Groups

https://www.npr.org/2018/10/04/654306774/russian-cyber-unit-accused-of-attacking-opcw-chemical-weapons-watchdogThe DOJ says Russia began its Olympics operation in retaliation for a damning World Anti-Doping Agency’s report released one month before the Rio Olympics, which found the country had used a systematic campaign to cheat doping tests, in actions that centered around the 2014 Sochi Winter Olympics. Within days of that report, Russia began trying to hack into WADA, the U.S. Anti-Doping Agency and other agencies, according to the Justice Department.

The charges include conspiracy, wire fraud conspiracy, wire fraud, aggravated identity theft, and conspiracy to commit money laundering. The case directly relates to Thursday’s announcement by Dutch authorities who say they disrupted at least one cyber op aimed at the OPCW.

My Take

Competitive sports are important to billions around the world, but let’s get a little perspective on it. These are games. Yes, Russia was embarrassed when their cheating was exposed, but that shouldn’t mean bringing in hacking intelligence agents to get revenge.

I don’t know what they were thinking or why they’d be willing to go to such extremes, but they’re playing a dangerous game here. International sports give the world a way to compete with each other without bloodshed. They’re great distractions from an otherwise violent world. Stop doping, start training harder, and put your hackers onto something more interesting.
