Iran Makes ANOTHER Major Threat Against United States

Iran is none to happy with the United States as of late, and this maneuver proves it.

Iran

The relationship between the US and Iran hasn’t been all that stellar over the course of the last 50 or so years, and that doesn’t look to be changing any time soon.

This is no surprise, given just how vitriolic and aggressive Iran has been in their condemnation of The United States.  For decades, the Islamic regime in charge of the Persian nation has been lambasting the US for any manner of things, most notably their involvement in Middle Eastern affairs.

Much of this criticism has been simply written off as wild propaganda by US officials, especially after considering that high-level officials within Tehran have also been vocal about their belief that The Holocaust may have been a hoax.

This week is different, however, as Iran and the US trade barbs over who are the “terrorists” among the two.

The General Staff of the Armed Forces of Iran, the highest-ranking branch of the nation’s military, issued a statement vowing to “spare no effort” in fighting the U.S. military on Tuesday, suggesting the potential of a planned attack against Washington.

Like other branches of the Iranian government and military, the General Staff referred to U.S. Central Command (CENTCOM) as a “terrorist” group, a response to the declaration by the U.S. State Department on Monday that Iran’s Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) would join the agency’s list of Foreign Terrorist Organizations (FTOs) for its decades of involvement in terrorist activity worldwide. The Iranian Islamic regime rapidly responded to the declaration – the first of its kind against a state actor – by reciprocally branding the U.S. military a terrorist group.

Iran is certainly no fan of Donald Trump, especially after the US President nullified the sweetheart nuclear deal handed to Tehran during the Barack Obama administration.

Liberal Legal Scholar Slams Twitter Over Censoring Trump; Declares ‘Free Speech’ Ultimate ‘Loser’

Published

on

Jonathan Turley, a constitutional law scholar recently warned that Twitter’s choice to fact-check and hide certain tweets from President Trump threatens the concept of free speech in the Unites States. Turley, a liberal, published a blog Friday that said, “Twitter is now making the case for government action to monitor and control social media. The ultimate loser will be free speech.” Thursday night, President Trump reacted to some of the violence and looting happening in the city of Minneapolis over the death of George Floyd, calling those responsible for the chaos “thugs” and threatened to cut loose the military in the city to get control over the situation. In a now hidden tweet, Trump said, “When the looting starts, the shooting starts.” Twitter then hid the tweet, requiring users to click an arrow in order for it to be seen, stating that it broke the rules by “glorifying violence.” Here’s more from The Washington Examiner: “I am still leery of the government intervening on social media,” Turley wrote. “Free speech has few advocates in this fight. It is primary a struggle between Twitter, Trump, and the Democrats over who controls such speech.” Turley said he did not agree with the content of Trump’s tweets about the Minneapolis protesters but that they should not be censored. “Twitter had the chance to admit error and return to neutrality in the interest of free speech. It is clearly more concerned with expressing its views than preserving its forum,” he said. “Frankly, I would not care about such self-inflicted wounds except that free speech will likely suffer the collateral damage from Twitter’s glorifying speech controls.” Turley is right. Twitter has had plenty of opportunities over the last few years to change their strategies involving the engagement of content posted to their site. Instead, they…

Twitter Tags White House Tweet With Warning Label Over Message It Says Broke Rules About ‘Glorifying Violence’

Published

Twitter continues to go at it with President Trump, even after he signed an executive order that labeled social media platforms as publishers, thus opening them up to lawsuits over silencing opinions. The White House poked Twitter and basically dared them to put a warning label on the president’s tweet concerning the violence in Minneapolis over the death of George Floyd for a second time. They did. One would think that Twitter would get the message, but they aren’t. Guess they’ll have to get sued a bunch and lose a lot of money before they finally understand that folks, especially the president, aren’t going to take the censorship anymore. Here are more details from The Washington Examiner: Twitter said the White House account “violated the Twitter Rules about glorifying violence” after it repeated a tweet from the president that called the protesters “THUGS” and implied they could be shot. This happened after Trump first posted the tweet on his personal account early Friday morning, and Twitter placed a warning label on it. https://twitter.com/JTHVerhovek/status/1266363516153364480 “These THUGS are dishonoring the memory of George Floyd, and I won’t let that happen,” the tweet read. “Just spoke to Governor Tim Walz and told him that the Military is with him all the way. Any difficulty and we will assume control but, when the looting starts, the shooting starts. Thank you!” Twitter didn’t remove the tweets posted by the White House and from Trump’s account, but they are hidden and require users to click an arrow in order for them to be seen. There is a message placed over the tweets that says: “This Tweet violated the Twitter Rules about glorifying violence. However, Twitter has determined that it may be in the public’s interest for the Tweet to remain accessible.” As you can see, liberals…
