Iran Issues Warrant For President Trump’s Arrest Over Killing Of Soleimani

Published

The nation of Iran has been a bit of a thorn in the side of the United States for a long, long time now, and it doesn’t seem like that’s going to change any time soon.

Iran has officially issued an arrest warrant for President Trump over the killing of one of their military officials, Gen. Qassem Soleimani. You know, the ruthless, evil commander who killed lots and lots of American soldiers over the years.

Here’s more on that via The Washington Examiner:

Tehran prosecutor Qasi Mehr asked the International Criminal Police Organization for help on Monday to arrest Trump and 35 other U.S. political and military leaders accused of being involved in Soleimani’s death, according to the government-funded Islamic Republic News Agency.

Iran called Soleimani’s killing “murder and terrorist acts,” and asked Interpol to issue “red notices,” which are requests “to law enforcement worldwide to locate and provisionally arrest a person pending extradition, surrender, or similar legal action.”

What’s not going to make Iran very happy is the fact that the president is in no danger of actually being arrested. Interpol’s guidelines prohibit the international group from being allowed to “undertake any intervention or activities of a political” nature.

The tensions that exist in spades between the United States and Iran skyrocketed after our military conducted a drone strike in January that killed Soleimani, who was a member of the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps’s elite Quds Force.

Washington is convinced this particular group has been responsible for the deaths of hundreds of U.S. soldiers in Iraq. The U.S. claimed to have been made aware of a plot by Soleimani to carry out future attacks that would pose a direct threat to U.S. national security.

Seems like a waste of time and effort, right?

This all begs the question of whether or not, as the left claims, Islam is really a religion of peace? The faith demands that you either convert or die, submit or be forced to your knees. Hardly sounds like a peaceful system of belief.

The gospel on the other hand is not a religion of force. Christians preach and try to convince folks to repent of their sins and turn to Jesus in faith. It’s a conversation. Christianity seeks to win over hearts and minds and to glorify God by kindness and service to others.

Not all cultures are equal. Some are rotten. Soleimani is proof of that.

Tone-Deaf Portland Runs Tourism Ad After Riot Police Quit En Masse

If you’re looking for chaos, have we got the vacation spot for you!

For months on end, a never-ending series of protests-turned-riots have plagued the city of Portland, Oregon. Night after night the northwestern locale rages, as protesters march in the street, commit arson, clash with cops, and generally relish in their new role as liberal nuisances to the citizens of the city. Things have gotten so bad, in fact, that a large contingent of the city’s riot police coordinated a mass resignation from that portion of the force. That makes the timing of the city’s latest tourism push all the more asinine. Portland ran a pricy full-page Sunday ad in the New York Times promoting tourism after the Portland police riot squad quit Thursday. “Some of what you’ve heard about Portland is true. Some is not. What matters most is that we’re true to ourselves,” Travel Portland wrote in the ad that could have cost up to $250,000. “You’ve heard a lot about us lately. It’s been a while since you heard from us,” it continues. “After a year of encouraging visitors and locals to support small businesses here and from a distance, it’s time to issue an invitation to come back to Portland,” the ad states. “Two sides to the same coin that keeps landing right on its edge. Anything can happen. We like it this way.” The ad also says “new ideas are welcome” in the city, a place where “you can be yourself.” “This is the kind of place where new ideas are welcome — whether they’re creative, cutting-edge or curious at first glance. You can speak up here. You can be yourself here,” it continues. Of course, the taxpayer money used to procure this ad could have been spent on any number of the projects that would have helped secure the city from these anarchistic rabble-rousers.

Canada Bucks International Trend, Won’t Open Border as Pandemic Fades

Airline industry officials are not happy.

In America and around the world, there is much optimism.  The year-plus reign of the COVID scourge is coming to an end as vaccination and natural antibody rates climb ever higher, and businesses from coast to coast begin to ramp up their capacities. But there are still those out there who are unwilling to admit this very palpable and tangible truth, and who are throttling economic recovery in their reticence. Our northern neighbors just so happen to fit that description. Canada said on Monday it would start cautiously lifting border restrictions for fully vaccinated citizens on July 5 but made clear it would be months before U.S. and other foreign travelers could enter the country. From 11:59 p.m. EDT on July 5 (0359 GMT on July 6), those who have received two doses of a COVID-19 vaccine will no longer have to spend time in quarantine. The move applies to Canadians and permanent residents. “This is the first phase of our precautionary approach … at this time we are not opening up our borders any further,” said Intergovernmental Affairs Minister Dominic LeBlanc. Ottawa first announced the plan on June 9. LeBlanc told reporters that Ottawa was talking to its domestic and international partners “with the goal of allowing fully vaccinated travelers to enter Canada for non-essential reasons in the months to come.” Canada’s unwillingness to capitulate to the reality of the pandemic’s end has adversely affected the airline industry, and has drawn criticism from American lawmakers who believe that more could be done by our allies to the north in the realm of reopening.
