The 5 am National Hurricane Center (NHC) Report has indicated that the risk for a direct impact from Tropical Storm Florence has increased, although exactly where on the East Coast remains uncertain. Residents of the East Coast should be on heightened alert for the potentially dangerous storm, which is expected to become a major hurricane again in the next 12 to 24 hours as it approaches the US.

Syrian state YouTube channels have been shut down this morning just as the Syrian Army's ground offensive has officially begun. This includes the following now terminated Syrian state and pro-government channels: Syrian Presidency, Syria MoD (Ministry of Defense), SANA, and Sama TV. This follows YouTube reportedly closing Syria's Ortas News last week. It is unclear whether or not the action is part of a broader move among US social media companies to close "Iran-linked" accounts, or if ...
While Syria seemed to have dropped from the Western media's radar over the past months as the Syrian Army and its Russian and Iranian allies made rapid gains, multiple huge developments this week have returned the war to center stage in Washington and the dangerous rhetoric of escalation. In just the last 24 hours alone, we've learned: Trump has reportedly done a 180 shift, departing from his prior statements of "bring our troops home" made only months ago, and has approved "an indefinit ...
Over seven years after the devastating earthquake and tsunami that crippled Japan's Fukushima nuclear power plant, the Japanese government has admitted that a former plant worker has died as a result of radiation exposure. While the 2011 earthquake and tsunami killed approximately 19,000 people, as NPR's Elise Hu reported, and "most drowned within minutes," this is the first radiation-exposure-based death since the incident (the radiation plumes caused by Fukushima's meltdowns spread up to 25 ...

(Natural News) Anti-gun fascist David Hogg and his trope of mindless followers recently staged another gun-grab protest in front of the headquarters of the National Rifle Association (NRA). And during the event, little Hoggwash was seen with an entourage of armed guards who were clearly there for his own personal protection. Linda from WGON put together a video analysis of this blatant hypocrisy, which you can watch at REAL.video. In it, Linda talks about how Hogg is apparently too blind to s ...
It appears that a new sectarian civil war is beginning to erupt in Iraq during a sensitive government transition phase, and the United States and its local allied forces in the Baghdad government are targets. According to early breaking reports tonight at least three mortars have struck near the US embassy's gate in the protected 'green zone' at the heart of the Iraqi capital. Early unconfirmed photographs and local statements indicate a sizable fire may have broken out as a result of the ...
