US Embassy in Iraq Nearly Leveled by Rocket as Iran Tensions Soar

Mike Pompeo’s recent warning to US staff in the region is looking more prophetic by the minute.

Last week’s warning to US workers in Iraq could not have come a moment too soon, apparently.

Due to increasingly hostile actions by the government of Iran, US officials last week demanded that non-essential American personnel leave the country of Iraq for feat that the regime in Tehran would soon launch a series of attacks.  As it turns out, this was far more prophetic than anyone could have imagined because, just days later, a rocket has nearly leveled the US Embassy in Baghdad.

A rocket was fired into the Iraqi capital Baghdad’s heavily fortified Green Zone, which houses government buildings and diplomatic missions, on Sunday night, falling near the U.S. Embassy but causing no casualties, the Iraqi military said.

The attack came two weeks after U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo warned Iraqi leaders during a surprise visit to Baghdad that if they failed to keep in check Iran-backed militias, which are expanding their power in Iraq and now form part of its security apparatus, the United States would respond with force.

His visit came after U.S. intelligence showed Iran-backed Shi’ite militias positioning rockets near bases housing U.S. forces, according to two Iraqi security sources.

There have been no claims of responsibility as of yet for the attack.

Saudi Arabian officials have linked two recent attacks on their oil industry to Iran; one aerial drone attack on an oil pipeline, and a sophisticated underwater attack using makeshift torpedoes that damaged four ships.

US President Donald Trump is hoping to stay out of conflict with Iran, but has warned that any action taken by the US will be swift and stern.

Democrats and entitlement. Everyone deserves everything, even those who have broken the law to get into the United States. No free lunch to Democrats essentially means free everything. Bernie Sanders just can’t help himself. Free healthcare. Free college. What’s next? Free housing? Free computers? Free spring training tickets for baseball fans to boo the Houston Astros? Come on, man.

Would you like to pony up more of your hard earned dollars to take care of illegals? From Center for Immigration Studies: Many of the Democratic candidates for president have endorsed providing health insurance to illegal immigrants. This analysis estimates the cost of providing illegal immigrants access to the existing system of government health benefits for low-income people. (We do not model the costs of scrapping the current system and giving all U.S. residents free government health insurance, as some candidates have proposed.) We estimate that there are 4.9 million uninsured illegal immigrants with incomes low enough to qualify for Medicaid or Advanced Premium Tax Credits (APTC), which are the subsidies provided by the Affordable Care Act (ACA). Assuming a realistic enrollment rate, the cost of providing ACA subsidies to illegal immigrants would be about $10 billion per year, with costs rising to as much as $23 billion per year if all eligible illegal immigrants enrolled. Costs would be similar under a hybrid approach that provides Medicaid for the lowest-income illegal immigrants and ACA subsidies for those with higher incomes. South Carolina Senator Lindsey Graham (R) made a big announcement recently and it has to do with Obamacare. Here’s the scoop, via Breitbart: Lindsey Graham said that Republicans will repeal Obamacare if Trump wins, the GOP keeps the Senate, and if…

Former Criminal Justice Adviser to Bernie Sanders Busted Plotting Jailbreak (Details)

I-R-O-N-I-C

If Bernie Sanders supporters aren’t shooting at a Republican Congressman or harassing conservatives, it appears they’re busy planning violent jailbreaks. Well, at least one of them was. Seems like a story straight out of Hollywood. But nope. This is real. A guy who once advised the 2020 Democrat Socialist presidential hopeful was caught doing something he definitely shouldn’t have been doing. From Free Beacon: A former adviser on criminal justice issues to Sen. Bernie Sanders (I., Vt.) was plotting a violent prison escape, stashing guns and ammunition inside a soon-to-be-opened prison, authorities said this week. Nashville police said Wednesday that Alex Friedmann, a prison reform advocate who helped shape the Vermont senator’s criminal justice agenda, spent months plotting an escape for inmates of the city’s detention center. Sanders worked with Friedmann to develop positions on criminal justice in the lead up to his 2016 presidential campaign—positions Sanders still touts. CONTINUED: Davidson County sheriff Daron Hall, at a press conference on Wednesday, said Friedmann hid at least three loaded guns upon breaking into the detention center in December. The break-in was part of “an extremely deliberate and, in my opinion, evil plan” Friedmann developed “over many months,” Hall said. WATCH: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=koWRKwAX1_Y An undercover video caught a Sanders campaign staffer explaining that the Vermont senator is exactly who conservatives thought he was from day one. He is not a Democrat Socialist. He’s just a straight up socialist.

What if it meant the government completely took over healthcare? Would you be interested then!? Sanders seems to think “a lot of people” would absolutely love it. No joke. The 2020 presidential candidate actually said these words. It’s as if he thinks all Americans are ignorant simply because his followers are the sharpest knives in…
