GREAT NEWS: All of Hillary's Sensitive Emails Were Seen by Huma Abedin and Therefore the Muslim Brotherhood

Aaron Klein reports on another fascinating chapter in the Clinton Cavalcade of Scandals:

A full review of Hillary Clinton’s personal emails released last Friday by the State Department finds Clinton’s senior aide, Huma Abedin, was exposed to highly-sensitive U.S. government information.

It was Abedin who forwarded to Clinton’s personal email address details about the initial establishment of the U.S. special mission in Benghazi, updates about security threats to both the mission and Ambassador Chris Stevens, intelligence on the growing terrorist threat in Libya and insider information on the Sept. 11, 2012 attack in Benghazi.

Abedin was privy to emails that contained the exact movements of Stevens while he was stationed in arguably one of the most dangerous zones in the world for any American diplomat.

[Abedin has both] personal and family ties to the Muslim Brotherhood and other to Islamic supremacists.

The connections not only extend to her mother and father, who are both deeply tied to al-Qaida fronts, but to Abedin herself...

The 5 Most Anticipated Boxing Matchups

With the disappointing delays to Pacquiao-Mayweather -- both past their prime -- the question becomes: which yet unfulfilled matchup is most desirable?

HEAVYWEIGHT: WBA Champion Wladimir Klitschko (64-3-0, 53 KO) vs. WBC Champion Deontay Wilder (33-0-0, 32 KO).

LIGHT HEAVYWEIGHT: WBA Champion Sergey Kovalev (27-0-1, 24 KO) vs. WBC Champion Adonis Stevenson (26-1-0, 21 KO).

SUPER MIDDLEWEIGHT: WBA Champion Andre Ward (27-0-0, 14 KO) vs. WBC Champion Badou Jack (19-1-1, 12 KO).

MIDDLEWEIGHT: WBA Champion Gennady Golovkin (33-0-0, 30 KO) vs. WBC Champion Miguel Cotto (39-4-0 32 KO).

SUPER LIGHTWEIGHT: WBA Champion Danny Garcia (30-0-0, 17 KO) vs. WBO Champion Terence Crawford (26-0-0, 18 KO).

Any one of these fights would be fantastic, but only a couple are likely to occur in a reasonable timeframe.

It's a shame boxing isn't managed by a unified structure akin to the UFC or MLB. The matchups would be better, audience share higher, and the payoffs for fighters therefore richer.

So the GOP Must Embrace Evil to Survive? Really?

By Lloyd Marcus

A black liberal columnist made the point in his article that the future of the GOP rests on it getting rid of its conservatives. Then, the GOP can modernize; attract more young voters of color by embracing open borders, amnesty, abortion and all the other filth coming out of the Democratic Party. Embracing this strategy is tantamount to embracing evil.

Many consultants and sadly, GOP politicians concur with the columnist's strategy. In essence, we are being told that the only way the GOP can win future elections is to embrace an anti-God and anti-righteous agenda. I can not and will not embrace this vile defeatist lie.

Democrats with mainstream media support have successfully branded the GOP as the party of “mean”. The truth is for decades the Democratic Party leadership has been the greatest dispensers of evil in America; hating morality while trashing all things wholesome and good.

As a matter of fact, the only behavior Democrats believe to be immoral causing them to respond with visceral hate is conservative, Republican and/or Christian.

The Truth Behind Hillary Clinton's Various Facades

By Alan Caruba

Does it strike anyone as strange that the only candidate for the Democratic Party’s nomination to be the next President of the United States is the wife of a former President? There is no historic precedent for this, no way to measure this against how Americans have selected Presidents in the past.

Like most Americans, I first took notice of her when Bill began his campaign to become President. I recall being struck by the fact that in 1969 as a student at Wellesley College, her 92-page senior thesis was devoted to the community organizer, Saul Alinsky’s book. The title of the thesis was “There is Only the Fight…”: An Analysis of the Alinski Model.” She would request Wellesley to deny access to it.

Alinsky was a Communist. His twelve rules for radicals, unlike the Ten Commandments, are devoid of a moral message. Instead, the message is “this is how you can win.” Hillary would do well to review Rule 7, “A tactic that drags on too long becomes a drag.” She was already old news when she announced her candidacy and it is becoming older with every passing day as she fails to take questions from the media, participating in totally staged events to look like “one of the people.”

Neither She or Bill are "one of the people". They, like the Bushes, are political royalty. They have both been around a very, very long time.

Hillary, despite the millions of words that have been written about and by her, remains an enigma. Other than being farther to the Left than Bill, she is a woman whose “achievements” in life have largely been the result of having married Bill. She would spend eight years in the White House as the First Lady and, pursuing her college dreams of political power, they would move to New York State where she ran and won a Senatorial election.

There isn’t a single Senate bill that she introduced or that is credited to her. She is said to have worked hard and gotten along well with her colleagues, but her Senate years are a blur in her public life. Then she made a bid to be the Democratic Party’s presidential candidate in 2008 and along came Barack Hussein Obama with whom the voters fell in love. When he was elected, he asked her to become his Secretary of State.

The Left’s Reign of Terror Continues in Martin O’Malley’s Baltimore

By Matthew Vadum

As Maryland’s largest city grieves for a mother and her 7-year-old son found shot to death, it is becoming clear that criminals emboldened by left-wingers are terrorizing the people of Baltimore like never before.

The city’s radical, left-wing, thug-loving mayor, Stephanie Rawlings-Blake (D), has emasculated the local police she despises and abandoned her constituents by giving criminals a green light to do as they please. Police officers have been ordered not to do their jobs which is just as well because many of them are quite justifiably terrified of doing their jobs in the current environment. Mobs of as many as 50 people now routinely assemble when police arrive at crime scenes. Are they serving as community watchdogs or are they there to intimidate cops? Maybe both.

At this rate it won’t be long before Baltimore dethrones Detroit as the premier municipal showcase for left-wing urban policy failures. Ominously, this is America’s Mad Max-like future if it continues on the suicidal course set by President Obama, a man whose proudest accomplishment has been to serve as a rabble-rousing Marxist community organizer.

While the still-warm corpses of the city’s newest murder victims were being processed by authorities yesterday, panelists at the George Soros-funded Center for American Progress in the nation’s capital laid the blame for the rising tide of violence in Baltimore on everyone except the perpetrators.

SICKENING: Afghan Interpreter Murdered by Taliban While Waiting for Visa as ICE Frees Thousands of Violent Illegals

This is the kind of thing that should make you nauseous.

An Afghan interpreter for the United States military who had been waiting for over four years on the U.S. visa list was tortured and killed by insurgents earlier this year, raising concerns that other translators could meet a similar fate as American forces withdraw from Afghanistan.

Sakhidad Afghan worked as a translator for the U.S. Marines and Air Force since around 2008. Four years ago, he applied for a U.S. visa under a program for at-risk military translators. He was still on the waiting list when the Taliban reportedly kidnapped him from a bazaar this spring and executed him in the back of a trailer truck.

Each year, thousands of Afghan interpreters under threat from anti-American militants sit in bureaucratic limbo, waiting for visas they were promised by the U.S. military.

Contrast the disgusting treatment of our allies with the administration's handling of violent illegal aliens.

Back in 2013, Immigration and Customs Enforcement got ripped by Congress for releasing 36,000 violent criminal illegal aliens onto American streets. Those criminals had convictions of homicide, rape, child molestation drunk driving and more. 

...Now, the agency has done it again and released more than 30,000 of the same type of criminal alien onto American streets last year ... "ICE released 30,558 criminal aliens in fiscal year 2014, which is down from the 36,007 criminals released a year before ... ICE didn’t release a breakdown of criminal offenses of the new 30,000 on Wednesday, but among the 36,000 released in 2013 were 193 homicide convictions, 426 sexual assault convictions, 303 kidnapping convictions and 16,070 convictions for driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol...

This kind of behavior is the entire Obama administration in microcosm.

BOOM: 2 days after Hillary became Secretary of State, Bill formed shell corporation to accept payments

By Rush Limbaugh

There's a little story here at PJ Media: "I just thought I’d contribute a detail to the latest news about the Clintons’ byzantine financial arrangements, specifically the limited-liability company Bill Clinton used to channel his 'consulting' profits." This is something we learned yesterday, he's got a shell corporation, a pass-through, and he was using that to hide money. He was using that to shelter money. He started a consulting business, in addition to everything else, the Crime Family Foundation, the Clinton Library and Massage Parlor, the charitable foundation, all these things, and then he added a consultancy business to it, and the payments were funneled through the shell corporation.

The original Associated Press story said that WJC, LLC -- "William Jefferson Clinton "the 'shell company" in question -- was formed in Delaware in 2008. It’s more interesting when you find out the specific date." So PJ Media researched this. "I searched the database of the Delaware Department of State’s Division of Corporations. There is one listing for WJC, LLC." That's Clinton's. "According to the information on file, the company was formed December 3, 2008."

So you're saying, okay, big deal, big whoop. Well, no. Because Obama confirmed Hillary as his choice for secretary of state just two days prior. Obama names her secretary of state on December 1st, 2008. Two days later, Clinton forms his shell corporation, his pass-through corporation to accept payments for his new consultancy group.

Islamic State suicide bomber in women's garb kills three in Saudi Arabia

Maha El Dahan and Sami Aboudi, 29 May 2015

ABU DHABI/DUBAI (Reuters) - An Islamist militant suicide bomber disguised as a woman blew himself up outside a Shi'ite mosque in eastern Saudi Arabia on Friday, killing himself and three other people, the second attack of its kind in the world's top oil exporter in one week.

The bombing, which was claimed by Islamic State, could further escalate sectarian strife in the kingdom, where anti-Shi'ite sentiment has been stoked by a military campaign against Iranian-allied Houthi militias in neighboring Yemen since March.

The Interior Ministry said a suicide bomber disguised in women's clothes blew himself up outside the al-Anoud mosque's entrance in the city of Dammam during noon prayers.

Witnesses said a suicide bomber, who wore an Abaya used by women in Saudi Arabia, blew himself up in the mosque's parking lot when guards searching worshippers became suspicious of him.

These kinds of attacks validate Foreign Policy's recent prediction that "...the Islamic State may be debuting a new strategy: lone-wolf attacks inside the kingdom."

Consider: under Obama, Hillary and Kerry, we have been left with an Iran ("Death to America!") on the brink of nuclear weapons, ISIS, an Al Qaeda-run Libya, a blood-soaked Syria, and a collapsing Iraq.

A nuclear Middle East is the Democrat Party's "legacy", starting with Jimmy Carter and extending all the way to Obama and Hillary.

Apocalypse now, indeed.

PASS THE POPCORN, NAHANNI: Nancy Pelosi says "The Clintons will have to answer for the Foundation"

That's what she said, although her speech was garbled by well nigh two dozen plastic surgeries (thanks to an estimate by Chuck Frobish of Chucks's Discount Plastic Surgery).

Nancy Pelosi told MSNBC that "the Clintons will have to answer for the foundation."

The comment came after Pelosi was asked about a story in the New York Times that states Bill Clinton accepted an award at a charity event only after that charity paid the Clinton Foundation $500,000.

"The former president of the United States agreed to accept a lifetime achievement award at the June 2014 event after Ms. Nemcova offered a $500,000 contribution to the Bill, Hillary and Chelsea Clinton Foundation. The donation, made late last year after the foundation sent the charity an invoice, amounted to almost a quarter of the evening’s net proceeds — enough to build 10 preschools in Indonesia," the Times reported.

Frankly, the facial contortions Ms. Pelosi has tortured her face with look -- to me, at least -- somewhat painful.

One would think that after amassing well somewhere around $30 million as a "public servant", Pelosi would be ready to retire.

Although, like many members of the Senate, perhaps she's using the perqs of office as an assisted living center.

“What would life be like without the NRA?”

By Allan D. Cors

As NRA’s new president, I am grateful to serve with you to preserve America’s unique freedoms.

I first encountered the National Rifle Association as an 11-year-old growing up in Ohio. Mentored by the NRA in the 1950s by men who had a passion for owning firearms and shooting, I learned the true meaning of our Second Amendment.

Recently, an old friend and I were remembering those remarkably free times: when “gun control” was not even in the lexicon; when a kid could take a shotgun or rifle to school and stow it in the cloakroom for after-school target practice or hunting.

My friend asked rhetorically, “What would life be like without the NRA?”

I know the answer to that question because I lived it.

Signing of the Gun Control Act on 22 October in 1968 by Democrat President Lyndon B. Johnson
I was blessed to have been present—working as a staff attorney in Congress—at the beginning of all of the legislative battles that have been thrust upon us.

In that fight—which brought us the 1968 Gun Control Act—there was no NRA as we know it today. We had no means to assemble our collective power as individuals to influence government. “Lobbying” was just not proper.

The sad truth is that the majority of the NRA’s Board of Directors at that time didn’t see disaster in the offing.

Then came the assassinations of President John F. Kennedy (an NRA Life member), and of Martin Luther King Jr., himself a believer in armed self-defense.

As a young attorney, I served as minority counsel for the House Judiciary Committee. Universal, national gun control to most of us was a totally unacceptable, foreign concept.

Free to financially pillage and rape

By Jim Quinn

It’s always interesting to see a long term chart that reflects your real life experiences. I bought my first home in 1990. It was a small townhouse and I paid $100k, put 10% down, and obtained a 9.875% mortgage. I was thrilled to get under 10%. Those were different times, when you bought a home as a place to live. We had our first kid in 1993 and started looking for a single family home. We stopped because our townhouse had declined in value to $85k, so I couldn’t afford to sell. In 1995 I convinced my employer to rent my townhouse, as they were already renting multiple townhouses for all the foreigners doing short term assignments in the U.S. We bought a single family home in 1995 with the sole purpose of having a decent place to raise a family that was within 20 minutes of my job.

Considering home prices on an inflation adjusted basis were lower than they were in 1980, I was certainly not looking at it as some sort of investment vehicle. But, as you can see from the chart, nationally prices soared by about 55% between 1995 and 2005. My home supposedly doubled in value over 10 years. I was ecstatic when I was eventually able to sell my townhouse in 2004 for $134k. I felt so smart, until I saw a notice in the paper one year later showing my old townhouse had been sold again for $176k. Who knew there were so many greater fools.

This was utterly ridiculous, as home prices over the last 100 years have gone up at the rate of inflation. Robert Shiller and a few other rational thinking people called it a bubble. They were scorned and ridiculed by the whores at the NAR and the bimbo cheerleaders on CNBC. Something smelled rotten in the state of housing. We now know who was responsible. Greenspan and Bernanke were at least 75% responsible for the housing bubble and its eventual implosion, which essentially destroyed our economic system. They purposely kept interest rates at obscenely low levels, encouraging every Tom, Dick and Julio to buy a home with a negative amortization, no doc, nothing down, adjustable rate mortgage, so they could live the American dream of being in debt up to their eyeballs.

Greenspan and Bernanke were also responsible for regulating the Wall Street banks. They allowed them to leverage themselves 30 to 1. They allowed them to create fraudulent high risk mortgage products. They looked the other way as Wall Street sliced and diced these guaranteed to default mortgages into AAA rated derivatives that were then spread throughout the global financial system like ticking time bombs. As home prices rose three standard deviations above the long term average, these Ivy League educated geniuses cheered it all on. Bernanke saw no bubble, just as it was bursting. He saw no mal-investment or systematic risk from this orgy of greed and fraud. And then it all blew up in our faces, while the perpetrators walked away unscathed to pillage and rape once more.

GREAT NEWS: ICE Still Releasing Criminal Aliens Into U.S. Population at a Frightening Pace

By Jessica Vaughan

The Atlanta Journal-Constitution has published an investigative report on violent criminals released by ICE. Aptly titled "Convicted, but free to roam: Giving little notice, federal authorities have released thousands of detained undeportable immigrants — sometimes with grave results", the article tells the story of a rapist and a murderer turned loose by ICE. Such criminal alien releases are continuing at an alarming pace in 2015.

According to documents provided to the House Judiciary Committee for a hearing last month, ICE released 30,558 convicted criminal aliens in FY 2014. These individuals had been convicted of 79,059 crimes, including 175 homicides, 373 sexual assaults, 186 kidnappings, and 14,014 impaired driving offenses (see the listing of conviction categories here).

As of the end of March, ICE had released another 10,246 criminal aliens. This pace of criminal releases is down from 2013 and 2014 — but only because ICE is arresting far fewer people to start with, not because there are fewer to arrest. ICE arrests of criminal aliens are down 32 percent since this time last year, according to ICE records. Arrests of the most serious offenders are down by 22 percent over last year.

Armed Bikers Plan to Draw Cartoons of Mohammed Outside a Mosque in Arizona

An armed biker gang. Cartoons of the Prophet Mohammed. A mosque in Arizona. What could possibly go wrong?

We’ll find out Friday, when two organizers — Jon Ritzheimer and Flash Nelson — host what’s being billed as a peaceful demonstration outside the Islamic Community Center in Phoenix. It’s the former site of worship for Elton Simpson and Nadir Soofi, who were killed after opening fire outside a May 3 contest featuring cartoons of the Prophet Mohammed in suburban Dallas. Simpson had no direct link to the Islamic State but was sympathetic to its cause. Many Muslims consider depictions of Mohammed blasphemous.

Just like the cartoon contest outside Dallas, this event, scheduled for 6:15 p.m. Friday, appears to welcome controversy. In a Facebook invite, the planners urge attendees to take full advantage of their Second Amendment right to carry weapons. So far, 163 people have RSVP’d...

...[The organizer] Ritzheimer did not return a request for comment Thursday. He told localmedia in Arizona, “I’m a Marine, and I am far from politically correct.… I’m outspoken, and I’ve just had it.”

Either you believe in free political speech or you don't. And this is political speech we're talking about.

QOTD: "Sen. Ted Cruz is warning he might seek to compel testimony from the Treasury Department about the Affordable Care Act... The Texas Republican presidential candidate, who has the gavel of the Judiciary Subcommittee on Oversight, Agency Action, Federal Rights and Federal Courts, said his staff had been informed by the Obama administration that witnesses would not be available to testify about the rule-making process for providing subsidies under Obamacare because of ongoing litigation.

“For two main reasons, this excuse is entirely invalid,” Cruz wrote in a new letter to Treasury Secretary Jacob J. Lew. “First, Congress retains its right to conduct oversight of the executive branch at all times, regardless of any perceptions of poor timing by, or inconvenience to, the executive branch. The Senate Judiciary Committee has obligations to ensure the proper functioning of the federal government at all times, and not just during windows of convenience for political officials. Second, your Department’s pending litigation justification is without basis, particularly given how you have provided at least one Department witness for the exact same topic during the pendency of other litigation over the last few years.”

In the letter, Cruz said if three tax policy officials at the Treasury Department are not made available on a voluntary basis, he may pursue other methods to get them to appear. The subcommittee had been planning to hold the hearing on June 4...

“If you do not opt to assist Congress and make all three individuals available voluntarily, I may have no choice but to pursue other options, including compulsory process, to make them available for testimony,” Cruz wrote in the missive to Lew. “Please note, in the event we are compelled to use compulsory process to ensure the attendance of these witnesses, the two-week courtesy notice prior to testimony is no longer applicable, and these individuals can be summoned for testimony at any time deemed convenient for the Committee.”" --Niels Lesniewski

TWO CHARTS: "The stock market is as overvalued as it was in 1929, 2000, and 2007"

By Jim Quinn

“Things always become obvious after the fact”Nassim Nicholas Taleb

The S&P 500 currently stands at 2,126, fractionally below its all-time high. It is now 300% above the 2009 low and 34% above the 2008 and 2001 previous highs. Most people believe this is the new normal. They are comfortably numb in their ignorance of facts, reality, the truth, and the inevitability of a bleak future. When the herd is convinced progress and never ending gains are the norm, the apparent stability and normality always degenerates into instability and extreme anxiety. As many honest analysts have proven, with unequivocal facts and proven valuation measurements, the stock market is as overvalued as it was in 1929, 2000, and 2007.

WELL DONE: Texas Outlaws Any Application of Radical Islamic Sharia Law Within its Borders

By Warner Todd Huston

Once again the nation looks to Texas for the way things ought to be. This time the Texas Legislature has passed a law permanently barring Muslims from trying to institute their own sharia-based savagery on their own communities in the Lone Star State. reports that the anti-sharia law was passed this week.

WOAI State Sen. Donna Campbell (R-New Braunfels) doesn’t mention Islamic Koranic law, or ‘Sharia Law’ in her bill. She simply says it guarantees that no laws fro ‘foreign courts’ will be adopted by Texas civil court judges.

“It’s just to provide some belt and suspenders to make sure that, with judicial discretion, we don’t trump Texas law, American law, with a foreign law regarding family law,” Campbell said.

Muslim groups say the bill is a ‘solution looking for problem, and claim that the bill has its genesis in an anti Muslim demonstration on the steps of the Texas Capitol in January in which the proposal was cheered.

But these Muslim groups are lying.

Hillary Clinton, Lord of War

By Matthew Vadum

While presidential candidate Hillary Clinton was America’s top diplomat the Department of State that she oversaw approved $165 billion worth of commercial arms sales to 20 nations whose governments forked over millions of dollars to the now-embattled Clinton Foundation.

According to an International Business Times report by David Sirota and Andrew Perez, “at least seven foreign governments that received State Department clearance for American arms did donate to the Clinton Foundation while Hillary Clinton was serving as secretary.” The article identified the seven nations as Algeria, Australia, Kuwait, Norway, Oman, Qatar, and Thailand.

Mainstream media’s surprisingly probing coverage of the unfolding Clinton Foundation donations-for-favors scandal suggests that reporters have turned on the Clintons in the age of Obama.

And the fact that the IBT piece was co-authored by Marxist author and radio talk show host David Sirota adds to the growing pile of evidence that some of the more ideologically pure progressives in the Democratic Party are ganging up on Mrs. Clinton in order to help as yet undeclared presidential candidate Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.).

Sirota, a former press aide to various left-wing lawmakers such as then-Rep. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.), a self-described socialist who just launched his own quixotic presidential campaign, isn’t exactly an objective observer. A longtime left-wing activist who hurls invective at conservatives and Republicans, Sirota has slobbered over Warren, calling the anti-capitalism crusader “one of the most promising political leaders in a generation.”

Meanwhile, the $165 billion figure, “derived from the three full fiscal years of Clinton’s term as Secretary of State (from October 2010 to September 2012) — represented nearly double the value of American arms sales made to the those countries and approved by the State Department during the same period of President George W. Bush’s second term.”

While Hillary Clinton headed the State Department the agency also gave its blessing to “$151 billion of separate Pentagon-brokered deals for 16 of the countries that donated to the Clinton Foundation, resulting in a 143 percent increase in completed sales to those nations over the same time frame during the Bush administration.”

QOTD: "OK, it’s not just me, right? This looks bad on a basic level, yes? It is not ridiculous to be upset that the Secretary of State was taking millions of dollars from the countries that she was funneling billions of dollars’ worth of business – weapons business – to, correct? Because as the Hill did not particularly note – but the International Business Times (H/T: Hot Air) did – these weapons sales represent a significant increase (read: ‘doubling’) over arms sales as those made during a similar chronological point in the Bush administration. Simply put: the State Department turned on the arms spigot, and various foreign governments and companies started filling up the Clinton Foundation trough.

So what’s the point? The point, my friends, is that you may now tell your liberal friends and colleagues that Hillary Clinton, by the Left’s own rules, can be fairly called a bloody-handed Merchant of Death* who profited off of the American government’s lucrative arms business. Watching them process that should give you some amusement. Especially when you remind them that they’re voluntarily going to vote for a woman who made money from arming regimes that oppress and execute their own subjects.

NOT THE ONION: "Marie Harf promoted to senior advisor, will focus on negotiations with Iran"

Just when you think Democrats have hit rock bottom:

The last time we checked in with Marie Harf, she was explaining to CNN’s Wolf Blitzer that Iraqi security forces “have held their lines on the outside of the city” — that city being Ramadi, which had just fallen to ISIS. We won’t be seeing as much of Harf on CNN or behind the podium beginning next week, and not for the reasons you’d suspect.

Instead, Harf is being promoted to senior advisor for strategic communications to Secretary of State John Kerry, where she will “continue her work leading on the Iran negotiations communications strategy.”

Yes, exactly like that, except dealing with nuclear weapons negotiations with a hostile nation.
Gird your loins, my friends.

Valerie Jarrett and Marie Harf have our backs.

Iranian Terror Newspaper Confirms Hezbollah’s Massive Military Buildup on Border with Israel

By The Tower

A Hezbollah-allied newspaper, As-Safir, recently published a series reports on the massive infrastructure, including a network of tunnels, that the Iranian-backed terrorist organization has been building on Lebanon’s border with Israel, The Times of Israel reported Saturday. According to the Times, Hezbollah is “painting a picture of a military force highly prepared for conflict, both in terms of equipment and of infrastructure.”

According to the reports, based on a tour of Hezbollah facilities given to the newspaper, the group has built a sprawling underground array of tunnels, bunkers and surveillance outposts along the border with Israel, which it is manning at peak readiness for battle.

The tunnels are said to be highly-advanced, with durable concrete, a 24-hour power supply via underground generators, a ventilation system to prevent damp from damaging military equipment and a web of secondary escape shafts in case of attack. The tunnels are said to be housing tens of thousands of rockets ready for launch, themselves wrapped in protective materials in order to preserve them. …

Tunnel construction was said to be continuing around the clock, using primitive means rather than advanced machinery in order to avoid detection by Israeli surveillance.

While the Times cautioned that as-Safir is “a mouthpiece” for Hezbollah, the reports of the tunnels and infrastructure match warnings that the Israeli military has been giving. Earlier this month, The New York Times quoted an Israeli military official who characterized residents of southern Lebanon, where Hezbollah’s infrastructure is strongest, as “civilians are living in a military compound.”
