And this is what the NFL is spending money on now?

Because spreading false narratives and “social justice” is more important than actually helping people in need.

The National Football League, Morehouse College and the Ross Initiative in Sports for Equality (RISE) will host the Advocacy in Sport Workshop at Morehouse College in Atlanta, Georgia, February 21-23, 2018 to educate athletes on how to develop and implement effective advocacy platforms that positively impact society.

“Sport has been an international venue for social change since before Jesse Owens swept the 1936 Olympics and opened the world’s eyes to the image of justice and equality,” said TROY VINCENT, NFL Executive Vice President of Football Operations. “This historic workshop is aimed at training the next generation of athletes who wish to use sport as a powerful platform for advocacy. Our partnership is designed to equip athletes as influencers and community leaders with the mechanics to develop their advocacy platform.”

The NFL and Morehouse College partnership is the product of ongoing strategic meetings held at the school since October 2016, convened by RISE. Former and active professional athletes, academics, politicians, social activists and sport administrators developed a curriculum to equip athletes with tools and resources to impact social issues respectfully and responsibly. Athletes will be taught organizational development, relationship management, and best practices in media relations.

“Athletes have a unique ability to bring people together for solution-driven conversations that can bring about real change,” said RISE CEO JOCELYN BENSON. “At RISE, we believe that harnessing the unifying power of sports and empowering athletes to be effective advocates can improve race relations and drive social progress in our country. We are proud to work with the NFL and Morehouse College to help enhance athletes’ ability to create positive change.”

Workshop participants will learn about previous movements and focus on process, acquire knowledge of impactful tools and resources, and hear from athlete activists, politicians and social activists.

  1. DAVID WALL RICE, Associate Professor of Psychology at Morehouse College,has taken the lead in designing the Advocacy in Sport workshop curriculum through his Identity, Art and Democracy Laboratory. Students selected to participate in the workshop will also take his winter term coursePsychology, Sport and Social Justice.

“Linking with the NFL and their players in pushing forward social justice agendas that mirror present and past activist foundations of Morehouse College is important work,” said HAROLD MARTIN JR., Interim President of Morehouse College. “We take our relationship here and the trust that many of the players have already communicated to Dr. Rice seriously, and we know that the work we do in February and beyond has the capacity to impact lives.”

So, what is RISE going to teach? You can read all about their activism to heal America of its supposed racial inequality, and police brutality at their website here and decide for yourself. 

So, being Jewish or Christian is like, uncool now?

Here we go again

An academic department at the University of Minnesota declared that “bows/wrapped gifts” are “not appropriate for gatherings and displays at this time of year.”

According a copy of the guidelines obtained by Campus Reform, UMN’s College of Food, Agricultural, and Natural Resource Sciences (CFANS) encouraged its employees “to recognize holidays in ways that are respectful of the diversity of our community,” recommending a series of steps to take.

Ah, diversity, which, to the left means exclusion of mainstream religions, and norms. Don’t believe me? Observe

The guidelines go on to say that individuals “may display expressions of their religious faith in their own personal space if it does not have a meaningful public function,” and not “in public areas,” such as “reception areas” or “kitchens.”

Additionally, CFANS claims that “in general,” numerous holiday items are “not appropriate for gatherings and displays at this time of year since they typically represent specific religious iconography,” including “Santa Claus, Angels, Christmas trees, Star of Bethlehem, Dreidels, [and the] Nativity scene.”

“Bows/wrapped gifts,” along with the “Menorah, Bells, Doves, Red and Green or Blue and white/silver decorations” are also discouraged.

These “recommendations” should not only be ignored, but should cause everyone on campus to decorate everything they can in red, green, silver, blue, and place Christmas trees, dreidels, nativity scenes, etc everywhere they can

Media hacks ignoring the crushing of ISIS?

Oh those things that make you go hmmmmmmmmmmmmm H/T Fritz

Strictly Rhetorical Question: Why Does the Media Not Report That ISIS Was Defeated in Iraq and Its Capital City of Raqqa in Syria Has Been Captured by US-Allied Troops?

I would imagine for much the same reason the media is silent on the economy.
Though this is consistent: after all, the media was largely silent on the economy and ISIS under Obama, too. For different reasons, of course.
Trump needs to give a primetime address or something to note these things. I guess he can wait until the State of the Union, but…

Remember how debates about ISIS dominated the presidential primaries? Remember how Donald Trump and Ted Cruz ratcheted up their rhetoric until they both seemed to promise that they’d commit war crimes like carpet bombing and torture to defeat the deadly threat?
ISIS was often the most important and most prominent story in the world. Now, however, the caliphate is a smoking ruin. It courted conflict with the great powers. It craved Armageddon, and it got its wish.
No one knows ISIS’s exact casualty figures, but its fighters have died by the tens of thousands. I’ve spoken to men who were directly involved in the air campaign, and they have told me that the public doesn’t yet understand the sheer scale and ultimate effectiveness of the American attacks. Yes, we withdrew from Iraq too soon. Yes, our counteroffensive against ISIS unfolded slowly.
But we fought back, we trained and equipped allies, and we won.
This is one of the best stories of the young Trump administration. While many of the battles were fought under Obama, Trump pursued the enemy relentlessly. He delegated decision-making to commanders in the field, they fought within the laws of war, and they prevailed. Trump promised to defeat ISIS, and he has delivered a tremendous victory. Part of the blame still rests with us. Let’s be honest: Panic and fear make for a better story than victory and peace.

So why isn’t this bigger news?

Sheer hackery, nothing more folks. The fact is our military must be allowed to do what no other military can do. This line from David French sums it up. ISIS called down the thunder and, well…………

ISIS was often the most important and most prominent story in the world. Now, however, the caliphate is a smoking ruin. It courted conflict with the great powers. It craved Armageddon, and it got its wish.

Someone really oughta wake the hacks at CNN, and MSNBS up

 

Oh great! Now Jingle Bells is RAAAAACIST!

Good Freaking Grief

Boston University theater professor Kyna Hamill has declared the beloved Christmas carol “Jingle Bells” to be a racist song, insisting the classic has a “problematic history” of being performed to make fun of African Americans.

“The legacy of ‘Jingle Bells’ is one where its blackface and racist origins have been subtly and systematically removed from its history,” Hamill wrote in a research paper on the carol, according to Fox News.

“Although ‘One Horse Open Sleigh,’ for most of its singers and listeners, may have eluded its racialized past and taken its place in the seemingly unproblematic romanticization of a normal ‘white’ Christmas, attention to the circumstances of its performance history enables reflection on its problematic role in the construction of blackness and whiteness in the United States,” she added.

Blah, blah, blah, bullshit! She is just another malcontent who should be told to F#@* off

And then they came for Teddy Roosevelt memorials……………..

Have I ever said that cultural stalinists never stop?

Via the Washington Examiner “More than 100 professors call for the removal of NYC statues in open letter to Bill de Blasio”:

The letter begins, “As scholars of American art, cultural history and social analysis, we are writing to urge that the Commission recommend the removal of several monuments from public view in New York City. They have long been highlighted as objects of popular resentment among communities of color and anti-racist scholars, artists, and movements.”

According to the letter, the statue of Roosevelt is offensive because he is shown riding on horseback, while two individuals who appear to be African American and Native American are following him on foot. The statue was built in front of the American Museum of Natural History and was designed to pay tribute to Theodore Roosevelt’s efforts as a champion of U.S. land and wildlife conservation. The individuals who signed the letter also claim that the museum served as “center of the American eugenics movement in the early years of the twentieth century.”

The second monument that the professors find offensive is the statue of Christopher Columbus, which stands in the middle of Columbus Circle in Manhattan. Even though the statue exists as a monument to Italian-American heritage, the letter’s signatories claim “Italian-Americans cannot be allowed to override his key role in the historical genocide of Indigenous peoples of the Americas.”

The letter can be read HERE.

Trump Spearheads New Effort To Combat Chinese Trade Exploitation – Washington Free Beacon

President Donald Trump is placing new focus on targeting China’s exploitation of the international trade system, putting the issue front-and-center in his newly released National Security Strategy, according to new information obtained by the Washington Free Beacon and multiple sources briefed on previously unreported details of the administration’s new policy.

As part of Trump’s newly issued strategy to tackle pressing national security priorities, in a document known as the NSS, the White House is planning efforts to combat China’s longstanding practices to exploit the international trade system and harm the U.S. economic stature, according to these sources, who said the plan places renewed focus on the ties between economic security and national security.

The Free Beacon was briefed about this previously unreported portion of the NSS ahead of the formal unveiling of the plan scheduled for Monday. Trump, a vocal critic of China’s unfair trade policies, is said to have directed senior White House national security officials to target China and other countries who exploit the international trade system…

Senator Gillibrand Pulled Strings So Muslim Athlete Who Molested 12-Year-Old Girl Could Come To The U.S. After His Visa Was Denied – 100PercentFedUp

Democrat Senator Kirsten Gillibrand (NY) likes to think of herself as a champion of women. After multiple women came forward to accuse fellow Democrat Senator Al Franken of sexual assault (photos were also supplied as evidence of one of the accuser’s claims), Gillibrand finally called for Franken to step down.

Was Gillibrand’s call for her fellow Senator to step down part of a larger plan to appear neutral, as she then attacked President Donald Trump for unfounded allegations against him only months before the election?

FBI Edits To Clinton Exoneration Go Far Beyond What Was Previously Known; Comey, McCabe, Strzok Implicated – Zero Hedge

The Senate Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee has discovered that edits made to former FBI Director James Comey’s statement exonerating Hillary Clinton for transmitting classified info over an unsecured, private email server went far beyond what was previously known, as detailed in a Thursday letter from committee chairman Sen. Ron Johnson (R-WI) to FBI Director Christopher Wray.

The letter reveals specific edits made by senior FBI agents when Deputy Director Andrew McCabe exchanged drafts of Comey’s statement with senior FBI officials, including Peter Strzok, Strzok’s direct supervisor, E.W. “Bill” Priestap, Jonathan Moffa, and an unnamed employee from the Office of General Counsel (identified by Newsweek as DOJ Deputy General Counsel Trisha Anderson) – in what was a coordinated conspiracy among top FBI brass to decriminalize Clinton’s conduct by changing legal terms and phrases, omitting key information, and minimizing the role of the Intelligence Community in the email investigation…

Report: Thousands Of Felons Registered To Vote Before The Alabama Senate Election – Conservative Institute

In what may have been the biggest political upset since the election of President Donald Trump over opponent Hillary Clinton, Democrat U.S. senatorial candidate Doug Jones overcame opponent Roy Moore by less than two percentage points in Tuesday’s special election. But his win might not be as impressive as it seems.

According to a report by AL.com, an Alabama-focused news organization, Jones may have been propelled to power by thousands of violent felons and career thieves who were registered to vote at the last minute through a massive liberal-funded effort.

CBO: Legalizing ‘Dreamers’ Would Cost $26 Billion – Washington Times

Legalizing 2 million illegal immigrant “Dreamers” would cost the government $25.9 billion over the next decade, as those now-legal people would claim more tax, education and other benefits they haven’t been able to get before, the Congressional Budget Office said Friday.

The CBO also said newly legalized Dreamers would sponsor 80,000 more immigrants to enter the country as part of “chain migration.”

Immigrant-rights activists have argued that legalizing Dreamers would be a financial boon to the country, but the CBO and the Joint Committee on Taxation suggested otherwise, saying that while they would pay somewhat higher taxes in to the government, they would take far more out of it.

The findings could be a blow to activists who have demanded the bill be included in any year-end spending deal. Congress already struggles to find offsets for other spending, and digging a hole more than $25 billion deeper could be difficult…

Ratings For ‘Thursday Night Football’ Crash To Season Low – Breitbart

The NFL has struggled mightily this year to get people to watch their primetime games, as the ratings from the Week 15 edition of Thursday Night Football continue to come in, it’s clear that those struggles will continue until the end of the year.

The clash between the Denver Broncos and the Indianapolis Colts drew only a 7.4/13 rating in metered markets. That poor showing resulted in a new season low for TNF on both CBS and NBC and simulcast on NFL Network.

According to Deadline Hollywood, “Looking at the close December 7 game between the Atlanta Falcons and the New Orleans Saints, last night’s TNF was down 27% in the early ratings. That Falcons’ win went on to deliver a 4.3/17 rating among adults 18-49 and 14.61 million viewers.

“In what has been a slippery season in the ratings for the NFL and broadcasters on the Big 4 and cable, last night’s TNF fell 26% in MM from the TNF of December 15, 2016. In the final numbers, that Seahawks win drew a 4.3/16 in the key demo and a total audience of 14.65 million.”…

Trump Breaks All-Time Record For Federal Appeals Judges As Senate Confirms James Ho To Fifth Circuit – Breitbart

President Donald Trump broke the all-time record on first-year judicial appointments to the federal appeals courts on Thursday, as the Senate confirmed James Ho to the U.S. Court of Appeals to the Fifth Circuit, a nominee notable as a racial minority who is outspoken on the importance of constitutional conservatism.

Senators voted 53-43 to confirm Ho of the Fifth Circuit, which has jurisdiction over Texas, Louisiana, and Mississippi. Democrats voted overwhelming against Ho, as they have done for all of President Trump’s nominees to the appeals courts.

Unlike some judicial nominees, Ho is assertive and unapologetic about his adherence to originalism – the judicial philosophy that the Constitution must always be interpreted according to the original public meaning of its words.

When senators asked him if he was an originalist, instead of the verbal tap-dance many nominees do to avoid that hot-button term, he answered bluntly, “Yes, I am an originalist.”…

Leftist Insanity Update: Entire Family Turns “Transgender” – CNS

Seasons’ Greatness: New York Fed Nowcast Hits 4.0% GDP Growth – Breitbart

That is the highest level on record for the Nowcast, which was launched just two years ago.

The Nowcast was revised up primarily due to positive impacts of revisions of earlier data, the New York Fed’s website said Friday. A similar tool from the Atlanta Fed was also revised up earlier this week to 3.3 percent.

12-Year-Old Raped At Gunpoint By Repeat Offender On GPS-Monitoring – Blue Lives Matter

A registered sex offender on GPS monitoring has been accused of raping a 12-year-old girl at gunpoint.

Collins Jacobs, 38, of Milwaukee is facing charges of one count of first degree sexual assault of a child, one count of kidnapping, and one count of child enticement, according to WITI.

Ohio School Board Says No To “Transgenders” Using Whatever Bathroom They Want – Daily Caller

An Ohio school board voted to reject a policy that would allow transgender students to use whatever bathroom or changing room facility they want rather than the room that agrees with a student’s biological sex.

The Lakota Local School Board shot down the proposed policy in a 3-2 vote late Monday night, according to Cincinnati.com.

“It’s poorly written policy, and it does not have legal support,” Board Member Todd Parnell said. “It’s a completely rushed and haphazard process coming up with this thing. We need to rewrite the thing and do it right.”

Some parents wanted the policy to pass, Cincinnati.com reported. “This is not going to go away,” said Linda Nix, the mother of a transgender student who graduated from the school. “It’s only going to compound. This should not be about politics, or about personal or religious beliefs. It’s about what is best for our district and for our students.”…

Federal Judge Deals Blow To Prosecution In Bundy Standoff Case By Warning Of Mistrial – Washington Times

A Nevada federal judge raised the possibility of a mistrial Monday in the 2014 standoff at the Bundy ranch, citing the failure of prosecutors to provide the defense in a timely fashion with a slew of documents.

U.S. District Judge Gloria Navarro also dismissed the jurors, who had returned Monday to the Las Vegas courthouse for the first time since Nov. 29, and told them to return Dec. 20. She said the government’s failure to share documents, information and witness names with defense attorneys in a timely fashion was “sufficient to undermine the confidence in the outcome of the trial,” according to the Las Vegas Review-Journal.

Her statements came as an encouraging sign for the four defendants – rancher Cliven Bundy, his sons Ammon and Ryan Bundy, and their colleague Ryan Payne – all of whom are considered key figures in the showdown with the Bureau of Land Management.

“I hope to get the case dismissed before the jurors come back,” Bret Whipple, an attorney representing Cliven Bundy, told the Review-Journal…

FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe abruptly cancelled his closed door testimony in front of the House Intelligence Committee as news emerged that the wife of Senior DOJ official Bruce Ohr worked for Fusion GPS, the opposition research firm which assembled the infamous “Trump dossier.” Ohr was demoted last week after allegedly trying to conceal his contacts with Fusion.

Fox News reporter Chad Pergram’s sources tell him “McCabe has an Ohr problem,” and they believe “FBI DepDir McCabe not coming to Hse Intel Cmte tomorrow because he’d be asked about Bruce Ohr & Ohr’s wife Nellie who worked for Fusion GPS,” adding “something far more sinister.”

Bitcoin Futures Soar 16% Amid Enthusiasm For Virtual Currency – News Max

Bitcoin’s debut on a major U.S. exchange is a hit so far, with the price of the first-ever futures contract for the virtual currency rising 16 percent.

The futures contract that expires in January was up $2,440 to $17,900 Monday afternoon on the Chicago Board Options Exchange. Trading began Sunday, and the price rose as high as $18,850, according to data from the CBOE.

The CBOE futures don’t involve actual bitcoin. They allow investors to make bets on the future direction of bitcoin.

The first session of futures trading fit right in with the frenzy surrounding bitcoin. Traffic to the CBOE website was so heavy right after the start of trading that the site experienced outages. The exchange also halted trading twice Sunday to stem volatility. The exchange operator has rules in place to stop trading after price swings of 10 percent.

Another large futures exchange, the Chicago Mercantile Exchange, will start trading its own futures on Dec. 18…

President Donald Trump is sending astronauts back to the Moon. The president Monday signed at the White House Space Policy Directive 1, a change in national space policy that provides for a U.S.-led, integrated program with private sector partners for a human return to the Moon, followed by missions to Mars and beyond.

The effort will more effectively organize government, private industry, and international efforts toward returning humans on the Moon, and will lay the foundation that will eventually enable human exploration of Mars…

Trump Slams ‘Dumbest Man On Television’ Don Lemon – InfoWars

President Trump on Monday addressed an erroneous report with a Twitter attack on the “Failing” New York Times, as well as CNN host Don Lemon, who he proceeded to call the “dumbest man on television.”

“Another false story, this time in the Failing @nytimes, that I watch 4-8 hours of television a day – Wrong! Also, I seldom, if ever, watch CNN or MSNBC, both of which I consider Fake News. I never watch Don Lemon, who I once called the ‘dumbest man on television!’ Bad Reporting,” Trump wrote in an early morning tweet.

Over the weekened, a Times report claimed the president maintains an obsessive hardcore diet of television media, as well as chugs a whole 12-pack of Diet Coke – everyday.

Another claim alleged is that the president “sometimes ‘hate-watches’ CNN to get worked up, especially Don Lemon,” despite consistently labeling the network “fake news,” and at one time dubbing it “very fake news.”…

Ex-Spy Chief Admits Role In ‘Deep State’ Intelligence War On Trump – Zero Hedge
.

An ex-spy chief who spoke out publicly against Trump while inspiring other career intelligence figures to follow suit has admitted his leading role in the intelligence community waging political war against the president, describing his actions as something he didn’t “fully think through”.

In a surprisingly frank interview, the CIA’s Michael Morell – who was longtime Deputy Director and former Acting Director of the nation’s most powerful intelligence agency – said that it wasn’t a great idea to leak against and bash a new president.

Morell had the dubious distinction of being George W. Bush’s personal daily briefer for the agency before and after 9/11, and also served under Obama until his retirement. In the summer of 2016 he took the unusual step of openly endorsing Hillary Clinton in a New York Times op-ed entitled, I Ran the C.I.A…

Dem Rep. Bobby Rush Sued For $1 Million To Collect Unpaid Loan For Church He Founded – Washington Free Beacon

Democratic representative Bobby Rush is being sued for $1 million after failing to make payments on a loan he received for a church he founded in his home district in Illinois.

A wellness center linked to the church has also collected more than $2.6 million in taxpayer-funded government grants in 2017 and more than $17 million in grants since 2008, according to records.

Rush founded the Beloved Community Christian Church, a nondenominational Christian church, in Chicago in 2002 with the intent of helping disadvantaged people in his community.

“I founded a church in Englewood, one of Chicago’s poorest and most fragile neighborhoods, and named it Beloved Community Christian Church,” Rush wrote in a 2011 op-ed. “The church, once the site of a Black Panther breakfast program for children, now stands in tribute to Dr. King’s vision of the power of community. A social service center, a health center and an after school robotics program are also part of the church’s mission to care for people.”

Rush initially paid $800,000 for the site of his church with the help of a $550,000 loan from New City Bank…

Military Wives Furious Over Captain’s Proposal To Send Sex Workers To Front Lines For Stress Relief – BizPac Review

Hell hath no fury like… an upset military wife.

Australian Army Capt. Sally Williamson clearly didn’t think things through when she recommended that prostitutes be sent to the front line to help troops “relieve stress.”

It’s also safe to say that Williamson is likely single.

The captain wrote an essay, titled “Sex and War – A Conversation Army Has To Have,” suggesting that the army “contract Australian male and female sex workers to service troops in forward operating bases and air bases,” The New York Post reported.

Sex work is legal in Australia, though regulated differently throughout the country, according to The Post.

Williamson, who is currently serving in the Middle East, said sex not only could help with “loneliness or prolonged absence from family, friends, partners and spouses,” it may also make it easier for soldiers to adapt to a war zone…

CIA Veterans: Spooks Know Names Of DNC Leakers – WorldNetDaily

The Central Intelligence Agency knows the identities of the people who leaked DNC emails to the whistleblower organization WikiLeaks during the heat of the 2016 presidential campaign, a former CIA officer contends.

Fred Rustmann, who served as an operations officer in the CIA’s National Clandestine Service for 24 years and was a member of the agency’s elite Senior Intelligence Service, said in an interview with WND that WikiLeaks’ ongoing release of classified information is “disgusting.”

But he said it’s likely the CIA knows who the leakers are.

“WikiLeaks says they want to protect their sources – Julian Assange said that he wouldn’t reveal his sources, but he would say that it wasn’t the Russians,” Rustmann said…

Fake News Update: CNN Walks Back Jeff Sessions-Russia “Bombshell” – Daily Caller

CNN has quietly walked back more of their “bombshell” reporting on the Trump-Russia collusion narrative, and this time it’s a story relating to Attorney General Jeff Sessions’ security clearance forms.

In May, CNN reported that Sessions had failed to disclose meetings he had with the Russian ambassador when he was a senator. Justice Department officials told CNN that Sessions had not listed those meetings on a security clearance form, even though the form says to list “any contact” with the “foreign government” or its “representatives” in the past seven years.

CNN framed the non-disclosures as more evidence of collusion between Russia and the Trump team, writing, “He has come under withering criticism from Democrats following revelations that he did not disclose the same contacts with Kislyak during his Senate confirmation hearings earlier this year.”

At the time, Sessions said he was told by the FBI not to list meetings “connected with his Senate activities,” but CNN’s legal expert denied those claims…

Self-Propelled Vessel Intercepted Smuggling More Than 3,800 Pounds Of Cocaine Near Texas – Fox News

A U.S. Coast Guard cutter intercepted a self-propelled semi-submersible vessel engaged in smuggling more than 3,800 pounds of cocaine, federal officials said Sunday.

According to the U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP), on November 13, CBP and Marine Operations (AMO) arrested the crew during operations in international waters, and all three suspects will face charges in the U.S.

“The drug cartels are relentless and extremely innovative,” National Air Security Operations Center – Corpus Christi Director Allen Durham said.

“Interdicting self-propelled semi-submersible vessels requires expertise and the right aircraft. Air and Marine Operations will continue to beat the cartels at their own game to protect our borders.”

The multi-day operation from surveillance to interception, according to CBP, involved several interagency partners including the U.S. Coast Guard and the U.S. Navy…

Top Dem In Tennessee Senate Race Has Record Of Covering Up Sexual Assault Allegations – Washington Free Beacon

Tennessee Democrat Phil Bredesen, a top party recruit who announced his Senate campaign on Thursday morning, was criticized for hiding details of sexual assault investigations into his top officials during his tenure as the state’s governor.

The campaign announcement by Bredesen, who was Tennessee’s governor from 2003 through 2011, came just hours before Sen. Al Franken (D., Minn.) announced he would be resigning due to allegations of sexual misconduct and amid the ongoing examination of the way workplace harassment claims are handled in Congress.

That sort of examination already took place in Tennessee while Bredesen was governor. It found that Bredesen’s administration treated harassment allegations differently when they were directed at top political appointees…

So, you mean actually killing terrorists works?

Your stunningly non-shocking news of the day

With less than a year in office, President Trump has overseen massive gains against the Islamic caliphate, with the once-powerful terror state losing city after city.

ISIS once governed immense territory in Iraq and Syria, ruling over 8 million people and controlling profitable refineries, agriculture, smuggling routes, and arsenals.

Now, ISIS controls only 3 percent of Iraq and 5 percent of Syria. Their leader, Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, is in hiding. American forces and regional allies have liberated key cities like Mosul, Raqqa, Tel Afar, and Rawa.

Brig. Gen. Andrew Croft, the ranking U.S. Air Force officer in Iraq, told Fox News he credits the Trump administration with providing the right leadership.

“The leadership team that is in place right now has certainly enabled us to succeed,” Croft said. “I couldn’t ask for a better leadership team to work for, to enable the military to do what it does best.”

And what does our military do best? Better than any military? Kill evil people

President Trump has allowed Defense Secretary James Mattis great latitude to work without micromanagement. Mattis, a former Marine Corps. General and Commander of United States Central Command, is the first senior military officer to serve as Defense Secretary since George Marshall in the ’50s.

The President’s hands-off approach has led to accelerated results. “It moved more quickly than at least I had anticipated,” Croft said. “We and the Iraqi Security Forces were able to hunt down and target ISIS leadership, target their command and control.”

Marine Col. Seth Folsom, who oversaw fighting in Al Qaim near the Syrian border, described feeling “liberated” under the new leadership.

“I never felt constrained. In a lot of ways, I felt quite liberated because we had a clear mandate and there was no questioning that.”

Brig. Gen. Robert “G-Man” Sofge, the top U.S. Marine in Iraq, echoed Folsom’s sentiment, saying commanders have “enjoyed not having to deal with too many distractions and there was no question about what the mission here in Iraq was.”
