Mirage Fighter jets from India have crossed the "Line of Control (LoC)" and entered Pakistan, launching a devastating air strike against what India calls a Terror camp run by the "Jaish-e-Mohammad" Terrorist group.
The Pakistan Air Force scrambled fighter jets from several locations in that country as Indian Air Force Jet(s) crossed the "Line of Control" and entered Pakistan.
According to Major General Asif Ghafoor of the Pakistan military, Indian fighter jets ". . . intruded from Muzafarabad sector . . ." and were intercepted near Balakot, Pakistan. See map below:
The general went on to say there was a fast response by Pakistani Air Forces causing India Jets to "release payload in haste while escaping which fell near Balakot. No casualties or damage."
THIS INFORMATION IS DISPUTED.
According to news media, twenty (20) Indian Air Force (IAF) Mirage jets not only crossed into Pakistan, they dropped "numerous 2,000 pound bombs on the terror camp, destroying it completely, and killing everyone in it."
This is the first time since 1971 the Indian fighter jets have crossed the Line of Control and entered Pakistan. This means India has broken a treaty they signed.
This is a stunning escalation in hostilities between India and Pakistan after a terror group from Pakistan bombed inside India, killing 40 Police Officers on February 15.

LETS BE CLEAR ON THIS: There are NO paying commercials on my radio show and this web site does NOT deluge you with ads. The reason there are no paying commercials is to prevent the radical left-wing from engaging in "Advertiser Boycotts" to silence speech they disagree with. THAT is how we get to exercise OUR freedom of speech. THAT is how you get to hear politically-incorrect news and opinions. In the absence of commercials, the ONLY source of revenue to keep this going is listener support. YOU. If YOU chip-in, free speech remains alive on mass media. If you don't, it won't. It's that simple.
With only 3 DAYS left before the bills come due, I must ask you to support this web site and talk-radio show to make certain it can remain alive thru March, 2019. Every little bit helps!

UPDATE 12:41 AM EST --
Intelligence Sources are confirming that the Prime Minister of Pakistan - as recently as July, 2018, was reported (by his wife) to have been using SIX GRAMS OF COCAINE PER NIGHT. This is the man who will decide whether Pakistan retaliates against India for tonight's terror camp bombings . . . and is also the man who has authority to launch Pakistan Nuclear Bombs.
A news story about the man's cocaine use was published in July, 2018 -- HERE.
ACCORDING TO U.S. NATIONAL SECURITY INTELLIGENCE SOURCES SPOKEN WITH DIRECTLY TONIGHT, THIS COMPONENT OF A KEY PLAYER MAKES THE PRESENT SITUATION "THE MOST DANGEROUS SITUATION IN THE WORLD RIGHT NOW." THE INTEL SOURCE ALSO STATED "THERE IS NO WAY OF KNOWING IF HE IS COKED-UP . . . OR WILL GET COKED-UP AND ISSUE A LAUNCH ORDER. THIS IS THE MOST DANGEROUS MOMENT IN HUMAN HISTORY. RIGHT NOW. . ."
It is important to note that if a nuclear exchange takes place between India and Pakistan, smoke and radiation from those detonations will reach the east coast of the United States within 72 hours, and will fully cover the 48 contiguous states within another 72 hours after that.
For months, I have cautioned my readers and listeners to have "preps" like filter masks , emergency food, and emergency water. Very few took that advice. Maybe now might be a good time to re-think whether YOU want to risk breathing such contamination, or having to EAT contaminated foods . . . or if you plan to wait until it happens, then try to get YOUR protection while 350 million other Americans are all clamoring for it at the same time? Suggested preps are HERE

*** BULLETIN ***
Indian Air Force wing commander Arvind Sinha has committed suicide. He shot himself in the head with a "Double-Barreled Weapon" inside his official residence in Allahabad, northern India. COVERT INTELLIGENCE REPORTS INDICATE PRECISELY WHY HE DID THIS . . .
The nature of this information is such that this story and future reporting is now LOCKED DOWN for Subscribers only.
The general public will not be allowed to know this . . . until it actually happens. . . because they utterly failed to pull their own weight and make a donation of a couple bucks. No sense in continuing to cast my pearls (of info) before Swine!

This is necessary because this is a CLOUD-BASED web site. The way it works is YOU READ . . . I GET BILLED for "Data Transfer."
Despite being politely asked for voluntary donations, few people ever bothered to donate. Then, despite being asked to click an ad within a story to generate ad revenue for this site, the majority of the general public couldn't be bothered with that, either. So there's no reason to give the general public free news anymore; they don't pull their own weight.
With tens-of-thousands of people reading stories here every day, the costs nearly drove the site out of business.
In order to be able to continue providing cutting-edge news, often hours or even DAYS before Drudge and most of the "mass-media" -- if they even cover it at all -- I need to be able to sustain this effort. To do that, I rely on folks like YOU contributing a pittance of about $1 a week; which is chump-change that you won't even miss! Yet that small amount makes all the difference in the world to the continued existence of this web site.
In the final analysis, knowledge is power. Getting information first, or info that other sources simply don't report, is usually well worth a few bucks in the long run.
