ISIS leader al-Baghdadi confirmed dead after apparent suicide during U.S. operation: sources

Westlake Legal Group 5800ffa3-BaghdadiTHUMB ISIS leader al-Baghdadi confirmed dead after apparent suicide during U.S. operation: sources Ronn Blitzer Lucas Tomlinson Jennifer Griffin fox-news/world/terrorism/isis fox news fnc/politics fnc article 6a64d688-7379-52fd-8012-5f832390fb75

ISIS leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi is dead, sources have confirmed to Fox News.

Al-Baghdadi, who took over ISIS after his predecessor Abu Omar al-Baghdadi was killed in 2010, detonated a suicide vest, killing himself when U.S. Special Operations forces entered a compound in northern Syria where he was located, according to a U.S. defense official. No U.S. Special Operations forces were hurt or killed in the raid.

“U.S. forces did a terrific job,” a U.S. military source told Fox News.“This just shows it may take time but terrorists will not find a sanctuary.” The same source told Fox News that biometric tests confirmed that it was indeed Baghdadi.

The compound was located near the Turkish border in northwest Syria’s Idlib Province, a known terrorist stronghold that has served as a home to groups linked to al-Qaeda. Al-Baghdadi had long been suspected to be hiding in the Idlib Province.

Mazloum Adbi, General Commander of the Kurdish-led Syrian Democratic Forces, touted a “historical operation” in a tweet Sunday morning, crediting “joint intelligence work with the United States of America.”

Regarding Mazloum’s claim of Kurdish assistance in the operation, a U.S. military source simply told Fox News, “the Kurds have always been good partners.”

Christen Limbaugh Bloom: Could you be the answer to someone else’s prayer?

Westlake Legal Group 871fa319-TitanicCross2 Christen Limbaugh Bloom: Could you be the answer to someone else's prayer? fox-news/us/religion/christianity fox-news/us/religion fox-news/opinion fox-news/faith-values fox news fnc/opinion fnc f17966b0-b5b1-5db1-971a-957fc37cf5f6 Christen Limbaugh Bloom article

I asked myself this question the other day because of a recurring theme in my Bible study on the Book of Ephesians. Having read this book many times in the past, this study has personally reinforced for me the belief of many theologians, which is that the Bible always has new lessons to teach us, no matter how many times we’ve read it.

For the first time, my eyes have been opened to the message of unity in the church woven repeatedly throughout the message of Ephesians. In fact, it’s so prevalent I’m shocked I never noticed it there before.

I now realize that this theme of church unity probably never stood out to me because until very recently, I didn’t fully understand what “church unity” means at its core. I’ve heard the term “community” used countless times in church. But I’ve always associated this word with Bible studies and small groups.

But through this study, God has enlightened my perspective on how I envision unity within the church. It began when my pastor, Josh Kelsey of C3 NYC Church, preached a sermon specifically on this topic. At that time, I had already known I’d be studying the Book of Ephesians in the next month, but had no idea the book was so focused on this idea.

When I started reading through the study, I was amazed to find so many of the themes my pastor had preached just weeks before resurfacing through an entirely different medium. I love these instances when God makes things so obvious as though He’s waving a neon sign of the message in your face.

GABRIEL ETZEL: THIS IS WHY WE SHOULD PRAY FOR OUR PRESIDENT

More from Opinion

In response I thought, “Alright God, I hear You loud and clear – unity in the church is important and something You clearly want me to understand … but what does it actually, practically look like?”

The Apostle Paul wrote in Ephesians 4:16 that as members of the church we are called to speak in truth and to act as “supporting ligaments” who grow and build each other up through love in order to fully grow into spiritual maturity as one body under Christ.

This verse makes clear that when individuals decide to put their faith in Jesus and follow Him, they automatically become part of something bigger than themselves: the church (Christ’s body). Being a part of this body shouldn’t consist solely of membership in a physical church or small group.

God asks us to shift our perspective to seek every opportunity to help others know Him better, and to see every person as someone who He created to make the body of the church better.

As Christians, we are not only called to encourage others and build one another up, it’s actually an essential part of God’s design for the church.

We all need reassurance from fellow believers, and we each have something in ourselves – given to us by God – that others need from us. Paul warns us that if we fail to obey this command, we will never reach our full potential and neither will the church. God creates every human being for a specific purpose to contribute something unique to His body.

With this in mind, believers should all think of themselves as potential answers to the prayers and problems of others. God has given each of us special gifts that the world needs, but we have to stay connected to Him and offer ourselves to be used by Him in order for these possibilities to come to fruition.

Half of Americans can’t start their day ‘positively’ without this, study claims

In today’s world, we know how important it is to keep a positive mindset. To do so, 85 percent of Americans are making a conscious effort to think positively each morning, according to a new survey.

A survey of 2,000 people looked at the ways in which people stay positive throughout the day and found a resounding 88 percent consider themselves positive people overall. However, 69 percent of those surveyed still wish they could be more positive.

The survey, conducted by OnePoll in conjunction with The Original Donut Shop Coffee, revealed four in five believe positive thinking can help improve their lives and start the morning off on a positive note.

50 percent of people polled said their morning can’t start out positively unless they begin it enjoying a cup of coffee, a new poll claims. (iStock)

For half of those surveyed (50 percent) the morning can’t start out positively unless they begin it enjoying a morning cup of coffee.

GRATEFUL DEAD’S BOB WEIR ON HOW HE STAYS ‘RIPPED’ AT 72

In fact, four in five people agree their daily cup of coffee helps them stay positive and productive throughout the day. Forty-eight percent also say exercise is key to getting their day started on a positive note.

In addition to coffee and exercise, the research revealed that smiling and thinking something positive (48 percent), waking up early (48 percent) and meditating (43 percent) are key to starting the morning off right.

“A positive morning routine primes your mind for success,” said Amy Blankson, CEO of Fearless Positivity and author of “The Future of Happiness.” “It’s so easy to fall prey to the tyranny of the urgent in the morning. Emails, text, calls, messages . . . By pausing for just two minutes to ground yourself in a positive practice like meditating or journaling, you are setting yourself up for greater happiness in the long run.”

Although working from home is still on the rise, working in an office could have other positive benefits. Seventy-five percent of those who work in an office strongly agree they consider themselves a positive person, compared to only 45 percent who work from home.

The perks of an office don’t stop there. Half of those surveyed (50 percent) say a positive work environment allows their productivity to flourish – but everyone’s environment is different.

Regardless of whether people are working from home or from an office, small gestures will always go a long way. Sixty-three percent of those studied say they do something nice for someone else as a way to incorporate positivity into their daily lives. Nearly seven in 10 also say they have a co-worker that is very positive and helps them get through the workday.

In fact, 75 percent say they often receive appreciation from their co-workers while a further four out of five say when their employer shares appreciation for their work, they feel more motivated to do well.

And that’s not all Americans will do to increase their positivity. Fifty-eight percent of those studied will surround themselves with positive people while a further 53 percent will try and appreciate others more.

Forty-eight percent keep a gratitude journal — listing all the things they are grateful for — while another 47 percent listen to uplifting podcasts in an effort to boost their positivity.

“Social support is the single greatest predictor of long-term happiness and success,” said Blankson. “Individuals who ‘pay it forward’ through praise and recognition express that they have greater feelings of happiness, satisfaction and relatedness on a weekly basis.”

“However, even more importantly, both givers and receivers inspire others to want to give, which creates a powerful network effect,” she added.

Vegan married to hunter opens up about lifestyle, rules for happy marriage: ‘People think it’s really far out’

A couple from Washington state is proving true love can overcome any dietary restriction.

Tandi Rolen, a 28-year-old yoga instructor, is a vegan — meaning she abstains from consuming meat or any animal byproduct. Meanwhile, Mitchell Rolen, her husband, works as a fishing guide and is a proud hunter.

However, despite their differences, Tandi and her hunter husband, who have been married since January 2015, manage to make it work together.

The high school sweethearts met at 16 — four years before Tandi adopted a plant-based diet to focus on her health, Daily Mail reports. Tandi became fully vegan a month after the pair wed.

The pair currently are raising their 4-month-old son vegan as well – but Tandi says that’s only because she is a vegan, but she would not stop him from following in his dad’s footsteps when he’s older. (MDW)

“I became so passionate about the positive effects of a vegan diet and I wanted to share it with the world. I understood the negative habits the western world has, and wanted to be a part of the conscious shift towards healing for all,” she said, according to the Daily Mail.

Tandi admits it was a rocky start as she initially did try to force her newfound diet on her husband, before letting go of “the pressure of my husband having the same food values.

“What saved my marriage was realizing that people will not change if you tell them what they’re doing is wrong. You have to lead by example and lead with compassion and understanding.”

Eventually, Tandi claims Mitchell came on board with her food philosophy and vowed to only eat meat that he himself killed using a bow and arrow. He also agreed to store his meat products in the garage and not the house, she said.

“Everyone is so far on one side of the spectrum. But the truth is everything is not a one-size-fits-all — lifestyle and diet included. We have to integrate. And we must take the best options on both sides and practice them.”

Newt Gingrich: China-Russia military alliance would have incredible impact on US

Westlake Legal Group ac96ea5a-putin Newt Gingrich: China-Russia military alliance would have incredible impact on US Newt Gingrich fox-news/world/world-regions/russia fox-news/world/world-regions/china fox-news/world fox-news/politics/executive/national-security fox-news/opinion fox news fnc/opinion fnc d86c9833-ba0c-5f61-bf31-810c3cecf4b9 article

China has dramatically modernized and grown its economy, military, and influence around the world in a relatively short time. In its own right, it has ascended from being a mostly backward country under the rule of Mao Zedong to being a genuine world power today.

Because of these advances, China by itself represents a serious challenge to the United States in many ways, which I discuss in my new book, “Trump vs. China: Facing America’s Greatest Threat.”

However, if it were to partner or cooperate with another country, such as Russia, China and its comrade could seriously threaten U.S. – and indeed global – security. This is the topic of this week’s episode of “Newt’s World.”

Here is an example of what I’m talking about: Imagine that China decided to invade Taiwan tomorrow.

NEWT GINGRICH: US MUST WAKE UP AND SEE CHINA FOR WHAT IT REALLY IS – BEFORE IT’S TOO LATE

This would put the U.S. in an incredibly difficult position. China insists that Taiwan is part of China – a position which the U.S. formally acknowledges. However, though the U.S. recognizes China’s position, we still maintain strong, unofficial relations with Taiwan. Under the 1979 Taiwan Relations Act, the U.S. has a commitment to provide assistance for the island’s defense capabilities.

More from Opinion

Looking at years of public statements, support, and rhetoric, the U.S. would be expected to intervene on Taiwan’s behalf – for the good of regional peace and international norms. Of course, this would be a complicated exchange.

Not only has China made significant advancements in its military and weaponry, but it has largely occupied and militarized the South China Sea, claiming the territory as its own. So, any military incursion to defend Taiwan would require a perceived attack on China.

This would create the potential for an incredibly intense conflict between two superpowers, which the United States might win – but at great cost.

Now, imagine that China launches a campaign against Taiwan with the help of Russian air forces.

This would entirely change the dynamic, making it much more difficult and costly (in blood and treasure) – and much less likely for any sort of U.S. victory. Now, instead of a focused conflict with China over a specific piece of territory, the U.S. would have to decide whether it wanted to risk engaging with a cooperative China and Russia at the same time.

For many years, China and Russia were like two estranged communist relatives, but that is changing. In recent years, China and Russia have cooperated in a number of military exercises – and their first long-range joint air patrol in the Asia-Pacific region this past summer.

Chinese Communist Party General Secretary Xi Jinping has met with Russian President Vladimir Putin 24 times since 2013, while he has only met with his U.S. counterpart 16 times during that period.

This activity creates a real potential for a China-Russia strategic alliance which would turn much of our national security planning and strategy on its head.

On “Newt’s World,” I had the opportunity to meet and speak with some of today’s top experts on Russia, China, and the evolving relationship between the two. It was an enlightening – but also sobering – conversation.

I hope you will listen to this week’s episode and think deeply about the challenge a China-Russia partnership would represent to the U.S. and the world.

It’s a problem that will not go away if we ignore it. It might get much worse.

Northern California Kincade Fire evacuations expand to 90,000 residents amid ‘historic’ wind event

Westlake Legal Group kincade-fire Northern California Kincade Fire evacuations expand to 90,000 residents amid 'historic' wind event fox-news/world/disasters/fires fox-news/us/us-regions/west/california fox news fnc/us fnc Brie Stimson article 9646727f-c29a-5ce7-9054-fb1afc0b5939

A mandatory evacuation order stemming from the Kincade Fire in Northern California expanded from 50,000 to 90,000 residents Saturday night as the state’s largest utility company, Pacific Gas & Electric (PG&E), planned to shut off power for an estimated 2.35 million residents over fears that high winds and low humidity would spread the blaze.

The entire towns of Healdsburg and Windsor in Sonoma County, north of San Francisco, were under mandatory evacuation as the evacuation zone stretched from Healdsburg west through the Russian River Valley to Bodega Bay, according to the Sonoma County Sheriff’s Department.

CALIFORNIA WILDFIRES FORCE MORE THAN 50,000 EVACUATIONS AFTER ‘HISTORIC WIND EVENT,’ MORE POWER SHUTOFFS

Winds reaching up to 75 mph or more during a “historic wind event” this weekend could help spread the fire, which has already burned more than 26,000 acres, the National Weather Service said.

The Sonoma County Sheriff’s Office expects the evacuation to be the largest in more than 25 years with Sheriff Mark Essick saying it’s the largest he’s experienced in his 26-year career.

The sheriff cited 24 deaths from a fire in the area two years ago while urging residents in the evacuation zones to leave.

“I’m seeing people reporting that they’re going to stay and fight this fire,” Essick said. “You cannot fight this. Please evacuate.”

A PG&E meteorologist said it’s “likely that many trees will fall, branches will break,” which could damage utility infrastructure and start a fire.

PG&E started shutting off power in six phases, beginning at 2 p.m. Saturday and scheduled to end at 10 a.m. Sunday.

CalFire (California Department of Forestry and Fire Protection) confirmed Saturday evening that the fire was 11 percent contained and more than 23,500 structures were in danger.

Meanwhile, the 4,600-acre Tick Fire burning in Southern California near Santa Clarita has also prompted thousands of residents to evacuate.

The Associated Press and Fox News’ David Aaro contributed to this report.

Dan Gainor: Anti-Trump media dream up their scariest Halloween nightmare

Westlake Legal Group 694940094001_6096874610001_6096875730001-vs Dan Gainor: Anti-Trump media dream up their scariest Halloween nightmare fox-news/politics/2020-presidential-election fox-news/person/donald-trump fox-news/opinion fox-news/media fox news fnc/opinion fnc Dan Gainor b135adf1-4ecb-5a27-b114-cb9ba8b2ac19 article

With Halloween arriving on Thursday, some journalists let their imaginations go wild and wrote about the frightening nightmare that haunts them – the reelection of President Trump.

Relax, there’s at most a little more than five years left in the media’s obsessive quest to impeach Trump. This too shall pass.

First we had journalists hyping an entirely anonymous book by the same author of the entirely anonymous anti-Trump op-ed published by The New York Times in September 2018.

Anti-Trump journalists swallowed this one like a handful of M&Ms handed out to trick-or-treaters.

ANONYMOUS OFFICIAL BEHIND INFAMOUS NYT OP-ED TO RELEASE BOOK ON TRUMP WHITE HOUSE

Are the charges in the op-ed true? Is the book accurate? With the writer hiding his or her identity like someone in the witness protection program, there’s no way of knowing and no way of challenging the writer’s claims.

More from Opinion

Then things got even weirder.

“CBS This Morning” journalist Nikole Killion apparently time-traveled to promote her fantasy ticket for the 2020 election. She actually pressed Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt., about whether he would pick fellow socialist media magnet Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., as his vice presidential running mate if he becomes the Democratic nominee to run against Trump.

There’s just one problem with this fantasy. The Constitution says the president and vice president must be at least 35 years old, and that means Ocasio-Cortez won’t be old enough to be elected to one of those offices until the 2024 election.

Time travel was all the rage. Politico’s senior White House reporter Darren Samuelsohn must have been watching “Avengers: Endgame” for story tips. He took his readers on a time-travel trip to the scariest future he could imagine — in a Politico Magazine story headlined “What If Trump Wins?”

Oh, no, Mr. Bill. Not that!

Samuelsohn actually called his article a trip into “the POLITICO Time Machine.”

As the reporter envisioned it, Trump defeats Sen. Elizabeth Warren, D-Mass., in a close Electoral College battle, after losing the popular vote. “But this mixed verdict has done nothing but further entrench the battle lines of a civil war that has become more than just a metaphor,” Samuelsohn writes ominously.

The fantasy went on to predict that “people have been killed.” Trump orders “troops onto the streets of Washington” and helps secure the 2024 nomination for first daughter Ivanka Trump.

Yes, this hallucination ran on the pages of an alleged news organization and was written by a senior White House reporter. And in case it wasn’t clear enough, the message was: support Trump and you get civil war and tyranny.

Politico, D-D.C., has never been subtle.

But wait, there’s more pre-Halloween hijinks by Trump haters masquerading as journalists.

MSNBC “Morning Joe” host Joe Scarborough decided that just as people wouldn’t admit they supported Trump the first time, “people will be reluctant to admit publicly that they can’t put up with him anymore.” Despite a whole world of liberal media that would sing their praises.

Scarborough based the entire premise that “actually the fear and loathing is rising” on one conversation he had with a man in Florida. So, Florida Man is deciding the world view of an entire TV show.

Of course, this is the same Joe who also claimed a few days ago that Trump had committed massive crimes and it’s “all about failed casinos.” According to Scarborough, Trump “is owned by [Russian President Vladimir] Putin because he’s been laundering money, Russian money for the last 20, 30 years.”

The easiest way to tell Scarborough is lying is he still claims he’s “a conservative.”

Harvard student journalists attacked for practicing journalism

College is where many student journalists learn the basics of their craft — asking knowledgeable people “who, what, where, when, why and how” about the stories they cover – and seeking comment from more than one side.

Harvard Crimson staffers certainly got a lesson in how this works last week. They learned that Harvard leftists are biased idiots every single day.

And what’s worse, the leftists expect their college newspaper to reflect that worldview, such as it is.

The Harvard Crimson has a storied history going back 146 years. But history isn’t the paper’s problem. It has a problem with current events and the unwillingness of campus leftists to accept them.

Harvard leftists held a pro-immigration rally to protest the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement agency (ICE). The Crimson covered the event but had the audacity to ask ICE for a comment, which it didn’t provide.

The lefties were outraged by … journalism. The far-left group that organized the initial protest, Act on a Dream, even launched a petition to stop the Crimson from ever doing journalism again. The petition whined about the paper’s “cultural insensitivity” and demanded the staff “apologize for the harm they inflicted.”

The protesters were upset because they claimed the paper informed on them to The Man. What’s funny is that the paper went out of its way to not do that, waiting until the event was over to ask for the comment it never got.

The paper is standing up to protesters — for now. At least this should provide the student journalists a clear lesson for the future. Leftists demand and usually receive fealty from most professional journalists. So the student journalists might stand up now, but they’ll be expected to bend the knee later on.

The one group it’s OK to hate

There’s one group journalists love to hate: old white guys who are Republicans or conservatives, or maybe both.

That racial double standard was on full display last week when journalists screamed about Trump using the word “lynch” but forgot they hadn’t been bothered by it when Biden and other Democrats used the term during the Clinton impeachment.

But the “neutral” news media really worked itself into an uproar when roughly two dozen Republicans entered a House closed-door impeachment hearing this past week without authorization.

MSNBC’s Donny Deutsch blasted the Republicans to the “Morning Joe” audience. He called them “those white guys, those middle-aged, boring, nerdy-looking white guys.” (Donny apparently has no mirrors in his home or office.) Picture an outlet mocking the race of congressmen when Democrats staged an anti-gun sit-in on the House floor in 2016.

CNN went even further. Commentator Keith Boykin said the action by Republican House members was reminiscent of the KKK. “This looked like a Klan group assembled outside a jail trying to get the sheriff to let them in so they could deliver justice to somebody who was inside,” he told anchor Jake Tapper. For his part, Tapper responded with the mildest of critiques. “Respectfully, I think the Klan metaphor was a little strong,” he said.

The only bright spot came on CBS when “Late Show” host Stephen Colbert mocked the race of the Republicans as well. Because, at least he was funny. He described the scene, saying, “That is a large herd of white men. By the way, a herd of white men is called a ‘A J. Crew.’ A ‘J. Crew’ of white men.”

In 2019, it’s OK to make fun of people’s race as long as they’re on the right.

State Dept. blocked statement backing ex-US envoy to Ukraine, diplomat testifies: report

A top U.S. diplomat testified to Congress on Saturday that the U.S. State Department blocked a statement in support of the U.S. ambassador to Ukraine before President Trump ousted the ambassador from her position last May, according to reports.

Philip Reeker, acting assistant secretary of state for European and Eurasian affairs, said he tried to get the State Department to “issue a strong statement in support of” Ambassador Marie Yovanovitch to keep her from being forced out over “false” claims.

He said he heard from staffers for David Hale,undersecretary of state for political affairs, that the State Department wouldn’t be releasing a statement in her defense, Politico reported.

Reeker testified behind closed doors for more than eight hours.

“More or less his first day on the job, the Yovanovitch situation blows up,” a person familiar with Reeker’s testimony who spoke on condition of anonymity reportedly told Politico.

Yovanovitch testified to Congress earlier this month that there was “a concerted campaign” against her based on “unfounded and false claims by people with clearly questionable motives.”

Reeker, who started his position in March, said the attacks were launched by Rudy Giuliani, President Trump’s personal lawyer.

The State Department tried to keep Reeker from testifying but he appeared Saturday under subpoena, Politico reported.

Human remains found in area of Tick Fire in Southern California

Human remains described as “large bones” were found Saturday morning in Santa Clarita, Calif., in an area where the Tick Fire has been burning, officials said.

A public works employee discovered the remains, according to FOX 11 in Los Angeles.

However, the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Office told the station that a preliminary investigation suggested the remains had been in the area for at least a year, so the death was unrelated to the current fire.

The Tick Fire was reported to be 55 percent contained as of early Sunday, according to the Associated Press.

Meanwhile, the Kincade Fire continued to cause damage in Northern California, prompting an evacuation order for about 90,000 residents and precautionary shutoffs of electricity to Pacific Gas & Electric customers.

Sonoma County Sheriff Mark Essick pleaded with residents to comply with the evacuation order, citing the loss of 24 lives when a wildfire hit the same area two years ago.

“I’m seeing people reporting that they’re going to stay and fight this fire,” Essick said. “You cannot fight this. Please evacuate.”
