Pentagon Makes Scary Suggestion About Possible Troop Buildup

President Trump isn’t going to like it.

The Pentagon today seemed to contradict President Trump regarding US military presence abroad with a worrisome statement.

Over the course of the last few weeks, tensions in the Middle East have been rising steadily.  Much of this turmoil has come from an ongoing series of attacks on the Saudi Arabians’ oil infrastructure which are believed to have been committed by either the Iranian Revolutionary Guard or their proxies.

In the aftermath of the first two attacks, one that targeted four oil tankers and another that detonated an explosive at a Saudi Pipeline location, there was confusion in Washington DC.  President Trump was adamant that he wanted to avoid a war with Iran – despite the Persian nation’s incessant threats against the US.

On the other side of the coin, however, was national security adviser John Bolton, whose hawkish lust for war is fairly well document from his previous stints in and around the White House.

Now the Pentagon in weighing in, and Donald Trump won’t like it.

The Pentagon on Thursday will present plans to the White House to send up to 10,000 more troops to the Middle East, in a move to beef up defenses against potential Iranian threats , U.S. officials said.

The officials said no final decision has been made yet, and it’s not clear if the White House would approve sending all or just some of the requested forces. Officials said the move is not in response to any new threat from Iran but is aimed at reinforcing security in the region. They said the troops would be defensive forces, and the discussions include additional Patriot missile batteries, more ships and increased efforts to monitor Iran.

Secretary of State Mike Pompeo has indicated that he sides with the President on the matter, hoping to deter Iran from any further escalation rather than to beat them in to submission.

Bernie Sanders Works Hard For Immigrant Vote, Says He’l Stop Deportations If He Wins White House

This guy is wacky.

Sen. Bernie Sanders is in full campaign mode, and given his extreme, socialist bent, he’s doing what any good Democratic candidate would do in his position, which pander his pants off. Who is Sanders dedicating his time to sucking up to? The illegal immigrant vote of course. The socialist has stated that if he should win the White House, he fully plans on imposing a moratorium on all deportations, which is sure to win him major points with Democrat voters and those residing in the country illegally. via TheBlaze: Sanders was speaking at an event hosted by the progressive Latino group Mijente in Las Vegas when he unveiled this new immigration proposal. “We are going to end the ICE raids that are terrorizing communities all across this country,” Sanders said. “We are going to impose a moratorium on deportations. And we are going to, as I mentioned — and there are some things that a president can do with executive orders and some things you can’t.” https://youtu.be/_3uQw6AahII https://twitter.com/BernieSanders/status/1173326838602641408 The proposal presents a clear trajectory of where illegal immigration policy would go under a Sanders administration. If you choose to stop deporting illegal immigrants, the next step down would be to detain them when they are found living in the U.S. illegally. But since detention facilities are already overwhelmed, resulting in poor conditions at some locations, indefinite detention during this deportation moratorium would not be a viable option. So, the only other choice would be to release them — or not seek to find and arrest illegal immigrants at all. Folks just do not seem to understand the threat that illegal immigrants pose to our nation, both in regards to physical safety and economic security. The vast majority of individuals who cross the border illegally end up on welfare programs like…

New Report From CBS Claims Multiple ISIS Fighters In Kurdish Prison Say They’re American And Want To Come Home

The Kurds can gladly keep them.

A CBS reporter recently visited a Syrian prison that was chock full of deplorable, disgusting members of radical Islamic terrorist group ISIS, which obviously wasn’t much of a story, but what else she found there is making headlines all across the country, and for good reason. Apparently, several of the prisoners she encountered claimed to be ISIS members from America who want to come back home. Yeah, don’t mean to burst your bubbles, guys, but that’s a no from us over here. via TheBlaze: When he was questioned by CBS News foreign correspondent Holly Williams, prisoner and accused ISIS fighter Lirim Sylejmani told her he was from Chicago. “The choices that I made, in somebody’s eyes, the wrong choices, so I face jail time,” he told Williams. He also said that he “just wanted to live under Islamic law” and did not think he had done anything wrong. He added that he wanted to return to the United States, even though he knew that he would likely be put in prison there as well. In another case, a 7-year-old prisoner who claimed to be from New York City told Williams that he had been brought to join ISIS by his parents. A seven-year-old child? Seriously? Many of you reading this have a kid this age in your home. Think about that sweet, young boy or girl being a member of a radical terrorist group, so full of hate, anger, and violence they would be willing to murder others. That’s the kind of monsters that belong to ISIS. The kind who take away a child’s innocence and brainwash them into becoming soldiers in a war that is about nothing more than world domination and spilling blood. It’s so tragic. However, no one should be allowed back over here. Period. Once you’ve…
