Homely Advice

A man goes to the doctor with a long history of migraine headaches. When the doctor goes over his history and does his physical, he discovers that the poor guy has tried practically every therapy known to man for his migraines and STILL sees no improvement.

“Listen,” says the doc, “I have migraines too and the advice I’m going to give you isn’t really anything I learned in medical school, but it’s advice that I’ve gotten from my own experience. When I have a migraine, I go home, get in a nice hot bathtub, and soak for a while. Then I have my wife sponge me off with the hottest water I can stand, especially around the forehead. This helps a little.

Then I get out of the tub, take her into the bedroom, and even if my head is killing me, I force myself to have sex with her. Almost always, the headache is immediately gone. Now, give it a try, and come back and see me in six weeks.”

Six weeks later, the patient returns with a big grin.  “Doc! I took our advice and it works! It REALLY WORKS! I’ve had migraines for 17 years and this is the FIRST time anyone has ever helped me!” “Well,” says the physician, “I’m glad I could help.”

“By the way, Doc,” the patient adds, “You have a REALLY nice house.”

Our Dysfunctional World

Beyond the Cusp

We were reading the news when two articles struck us as the definition of our dysfunctional world. One pertained to the United Nations and the other to Mahmoud Abbas and recent statements with both having ramifications for Israel. The one straight from the United Nations was not much of a shock or even a slight surprise. Israel has plans to destroy a squatter’s town which was built illegally, does not meet codes, and erected to prevent Israeli plans to build onto the city of Kfar Adumim, east of Jerusalem along Route 1. The United Nations demands that Israel cease and desist from plans to remove this blight, which has become to be called Khan al-Ahmar. There are currently approximately one-hundred-eighty Bedouins who recently took up residence after the area had been cleared for destruction. These Bedouins were requested to take up residence strictly to have opposition raised against the destruction…

Trump says UK is “losing its culture” due to migrant influx, May praises migrants’ “fantastic contribution”

Quote

Theresa May today hit back at Donald Trump’s incendiary warning Britain is ‘losing its culture’ because of immigration.

The Prime Minister said that immigrants from all over the world have made a ‘fantastic contribution’ to life in the UK.

Although she also stressed that Britain will end free movement when the country quits the European Union.

Mr Trump has sent the Special Relationship into meltdown by trashing the PM’s Brexit plans which he said killed off hopes of a transatlantic trade deal.

And he said warned Britain – and the rest of Europe – is ‘losing its culture’ by allowing ‘millions and millions’ of people to move in.

Reading, Writing and Jihad: Child Soldiers and a Lost Generation

Quote

There is “Saeed,” 18, who told a reporter that “brave men become martyrs on the battlefields.” As a soldier, he said, he learned quickly because “my favorite subject at school was Islamic education” with its tales of Mohammed’s battles. “I do my best to imitate him.”

There is 13-year-old Younis, who was taught to use a machine gun as a child, according to a CNN profile, and Saleh who drove rocket launchers, also at 13. And 13-year-old Basheer fired Katyusha rockets at the “infidel enemy” – Yemen’s government forces who are backed by Saudi Arabia, the United States, France, and the UK.

All are or have been part of Yemen’s growing child armies, children recruited to fight on both sides of the city’s four-year-old civil war. The United Nations has reported child soldiers as young as 11. Many are sent by their parents, either for the high salaries soldiers receive, or hopes that the children will achieve martyrdom.

As the war there rages on, children are the most victimized. Besides the boys who become soldiers, there are the girls who are sold off as wives, UN Secretary General Antonio Guterres told a conference in Geneva last spring. “Nearly two-thirds of girls are married before 18, and many before 15.” In addition, food, water, and medication shortages mean that “every ten minutes, a child under five dies of preventable causes,” he said. The UN has declared Yemen “the world’s worst humanitarian crisis.”

Trump Frees Europe From Angry Socialist Babies

Quote

A protester waved a, “Everyone welcome” sign outside Blenheim Palace as President Trump arrived to attend a reception with Prime Minister May.

She didn’t mean Trump. Everyone but Trump was welcome in the United Kingdom.

The angry woman was part of a furious leftist mob that had hounded the President of the United States from his landing at Stansted Airport to his flight to Winfield House to the trip to Blenheim.

A desperate marketing firm had paid the owner of Moat Farm in Stoke Mandeville, who has no opinion on Trump, to allow a 650 foot crop circle reading “F___ Trump” in Russian on his flight path.

And that wasn’t even the most desperate leftist protest stunt by the angry babies of socialism.

Pots and pants were banged outside Winfield House, the United States ambassador’s residence, at Blenheim a sign accused Trump of being the “World’s #1 Racist” and Amnesty International hung up a giant banner calling him a, “Human Rights Nightmare” in an equally nightmarish yellow font.

Momentum, the anti-Semitic left-wing hate group, Stop the War’s Trotskyists, the UK version of the pro-Farrakhan racist Women’s March, and the freeloaders of the Trades Union Congress will be part of a London mob of an estimated 50,000 preparing to protest President Trump’s existence.

Israel’s Active Defense Campaign in Syria: The Next Phase

Quote

EXECUTIVE SUMMARY: Tehran’s recent decision to attempt direct clashes with Israel resulted in a resounding defeat on May 10, when the IDF destroyed 50 Iranian military targets in Syrian territory. Iran is now shifting gears back to its traditional proxy approach. While it appears reluctant to mobilize Hezbollah against Israel right now and risk a full-scale regional war, it is continuing to work on securing a military position in Syria to use for future aggression. Israel must maintain its flexibility and responsiveness in order to prevent the creation of a second Iranian mass missile front on the border.

Judging from international media reports, Israel’s campaign to keep Iran out of Syria has entered a new phase.

In the previous phase, Tehran had injected its own Islamic Revolutionary Guards Corps (IRGC) forces into Syria, where they proceeded to build drone, missile, and infantry bases. Iran’s grander ambition is to set up naval and air force bases on Syrian soil as well. In addition, it wants to flood the country with projectile launchers and terrorist cells that would assault Israel in the future.

The initial effort ran up against persistent and accurate Israeli defensive counter-measures. Israel relied on advanced intelligence, combined with precision firepower, to destroy Iran’s budding military presence in Syria.
