Pentagon Doubles Down in Defense of Iranian Threat

Iran’s latest escalations are prompting an enormous response from the Pentagon and the US Armed Forces.

The middle east is once again figuratively ablaze, as the Persian nation of Iran has begun to antagonize the United States.

Iran, whose cushy relationship with former US President Barack Obama was predicated on a lopsided nuclear “deal”, is no longer hiding behind the cordial mask that they one were.  You see, current US President Donald Trump had seen through the agreement, and, realizing that it was weighted in favor of Iran, has essentially nullified the agreement.

Iran, who are no longer getting the benefit of the doubt in their nuclear programs because of this, are furious and ready for revenge.

With Israeli intelligence allegedly uncovering an Iranian plot to attack US interests in the middle east, the Pentagon has been forced to take the threats seriously.

In the latest tense exchange between Tehran and Washington, Iran’s hardline Revolutionary Guards separately said Iran would not negotiate with the United States, a stance that seemed partly aimed at discouraging Iranian President Hassan Rouhani and his moderate allies from taking up a U.S. offer of talks.

U.S. President Donald Trump on Thursday urged Iran’s leaders talk with him about giving up their nuclear program and said he could not rule out a military confrontation.

Trump made the offer as he increased economic and military pressure on Iran, moving to cut off all Iranian oil exports this month while beefing up the U.S. Navy and Air Force presence in the Gulf. Acting U.S. Defense Secretary Patrick Shanahan approved a new deployment of Patriot missiles to the Middle East, a U.S. official told Reuters on Friday.

The U.S. aircraft carrier Abraham Lincoln, deployed as a warning to Iran, passed through Egypt’s Suez Canal on Thursday and American B-52 bombers have also arrived at a U.S. base in Qatar, U.S. Central Command said.

Iranian officials are attempting to goad the US into action, proclaiming that these forces are merely present for “psychological warfare” and that the entire US Navy could be destroyed by just “one missile”.

HERE WE GO: First Republican Rep. Comes Out & Calls For Trump’s Impeachment (Details)

The MSM is about to have a field day…

Well, this isn’t good. The first sitting Republican Congressman has pretty much declared that President Trump needs to be impeached. The media is sure to run with this story like they’re being chased. Check it out… From Politico: Michigan Rep. Justin Amash became the first Republican lawmaker to declare that President Donald Trump committed impeachable offenses and that Attorney General William Barr “deliberately misrepresented” special counsel Robert Mueller’s report. Amash, whose libertarian views often put him at odds with Trump and his fellow Republicans, posted a series of tweets Saturday afternoon outlining positions that even some Democrats have been unwilling to embrace — an extraordinary development that comes as Democratic leaders face increasing pressure from progressives to launch impeachment proceedings. His tweets: Here are my principal conclusions: 1. Attorney General Barr has deliberately misrepresented Mueller’s report. 2. President Trump has engaged in impeachable conduct. 3. Partisanship has eroded our system of checks and balances. 4. Few members of Congress have read the report. https://twitter.com/justinamash/status/1129831615952236546 I offer these conclusions only after having read Mueller’s redacted report carefully and completely, having read or watched pertinent statements and testimony, and having discussed this matter with my staff, who thoroughly reviewed materials and provided me with further analysis. https://twitter.com/justinamash/status/1129831618712100864 In comparing Barr’s principal conclusions, congressional testimony, and other statements to Mueller’s report, it is clear that Barr intended to mislead the public about Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s analysis and findings. https://twitter.com/justinamash/status/1129831619869728771 Barr’s misrepresentations are significant but often subtle, frequently taking the form of sleight-of-hand qualifications or logical fallacies, which he hopes people will not notice. https://twitter.com/justinamash/status/1129831620838662145 Under our Constitution, the president “shall be removed from Office on Impeachment for, and Conviction of, Treason, Bribery, or other high Crimes and Misdemeanors.” While “high Crimes and Misdemeanors” is not defined, the context implies conduct that violates…

CONFIRMED: Reporters From Big Name Liberal Outlets Found to Have Working Ties With Antifa

Oh, is that RIGHT!?

John Salvatore

Published

Antifa is back in the news. Not good. If members of the mainstream media were honest with the American people – or themselves – they’d report this story. But they aren’t. And they won’t. From Red State: After mapping the social interactions of 58,254 Antifa accounts on the social network Twitter, Dr. Eoin Lenihan found that many journalists from major publications such as The Guardian, Vox, and more had a direct working relationship with the Antifa members. Lenihan posted his findings to Twitter where he put up a chart showing Antifa area accounts with their related members. We mapped the social interactions of 58,254 Antifa affiliated accounts on Twitter based on an initial seed of 16 self-identifying and verifiable Antifa accounts (and Mark Bray who chose not to confirm if he is a member of Antifa but whose book makes a solid case for inclusion). https://twitter.com/EoinLenihan/status/1128731412180426752?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1128731412180426752&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.redstate.com%2Fbrandon_morse%2F2019%2F05%2F17%2Fjournos-prominent-news-publications-found-working-relationships-antifa%2F He then shortened that dataset to only 1.65 percent of the total, leaving them with the accounts that are the most connected to the various official Antifa accounts with a minimum of eight connections or more. According to Lenihan, some had far more than just eight. As the data came out, Lenihan found more than a few journalists with a multitude of connections to Antifa. https://twitter.com/EoinLenihan/status/1128734136640966656?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1128734136640966656&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.redstate.com%2Fbrandon_morse%2F2019%2F05%2F17%2Fjournos-prominent-news-publications-found-working-relationships-antifa%2F https://twitter.com/EoinLenihan/status/1128746750586564614?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1128746750586564614&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.redstate.com%2Fbrandon_morse%2F2019%2F05%2F17%2Fjournos-prominent-news-publications-found-working-relationships-antifa%2F https://twitter.com/EoinLenihan/status/1128761714445570049?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1128761714445570049&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.redstate.com%2Fbrandon_morse%2F2019%2F05%2F17%2Fjournos-prominent-news-publications-found-working-relationships-antifa%2F https://twitter.com/EoinLenihan/status/1128740972702183425?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1128740972702183425&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.redstate.com%2Fbrandon_morse%2F2019%2F05%2F17%2Fjournos-prominent-news-publications-found-working-relationships-antifa%2F “Antifa” has to single-handedly be the most ironic group in America today. The “anti-fascists” do nothing but promote fascism by refusing to let the other side speak. Former Vice President Joe Biden officially kicked off his 2020 presidential campaign by praising the uninformed group. WATCH: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VbOU2fTg6cI Radical protesters apparently held a protest outside the home of a prominent Fox News host. Yes, outside his private residence. Tucker Carlson just can’t win. Check out the “invite”… This isn’t right. In fact, it is absolutely wrong. The…
