WATCH: Netanyahu Reaches Out To, Praises Defiant Iranian Protesters

One of the most important stories the media won’t tell you about over the last year.

Published

One of the most important stories the media won’t tell you about over the last year is the rising tide of Iranians protesting the oppressive regime they live under.

American politicians who value liberty and equality are voicing their support, from Senator Tom Cotton to Mike Pompeo, but one very significant leader joined in their praise of the protesters this week, calling on a shared love of soccer to encourage the Iranian people: Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.

Iran is by far Israel’s biggest enemy. They openly preach the destruction of Israel and are the number one global state sponsor of terrorism, plenty of which falls on the heads of the IDF and even Israeli civilians at the hands of Hamas, the terrorist organization that controls the Palestinian Authority.

In what can only be described as an incredibly powerful and gracious move, however, Netanyahu called upon a recent soccer victory achieved by the Iranian team at the World Cup to tell the world of the tenacity and courage the Iranian people display, on and off the field, as they stand up to their corrupt mullahs.

 The Daily Wire describes the beginning of the video:

The video starts with Netanyahu seated behind his desk while catching a soccer ball thrown to him, He begins, “You imagine how hard it is to stop Ronaldo from scoring a goal?”

The video cuts to Netanyahu, in his suit, bouncing the ball off his foot, soccer-style, as his voice-over notes, “I used to play soccer.” Then back to his desk, as he continues, “Let me tell you—It’s almost impossible. But the Iranian team just did the impossible.”

Then he speaks directly to the people:

To the Iranian people I say: You showed courage on the playing field, and today you showed the same courage on the streets of Iran.

Iran has many problems: air pollution, water scarcity, billions wasted on terror. Can you imagine what would happen if the Iranian government, instead of wasting your money on Syria, in Yemen, and unnecessary wars in the Middle East, would start investing it in solving these problems in Iran?

The solution to all these problems is the Iranian people. That’s why I offered medical aid to save Iranian lives after a devastating earthquake. That’s why I opened a Farsi Telegram group to teach water conservation to Iranian farmers.

And that’s why I’ll never stop advocating for peace with the Iranian people.

One day, I hope to watch Iran’s soccer team go head-to-head against Israel in a free Tehran.

On that day, we’ll all be winners.

Mitch McConnell Blasts AOC’s Claim He Is ‘Complicit In Advancing Racism’

Good for him.

Published

on

Has anyone else noticed how hostile Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez has become as of late? It seems she’s moved beyond just spewing pure idiocy and has decided to beef it up with a little bitterness. One of her most recent comments was against Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell who she claims is complicit in advancing racism. Because when all else fails, just toss out the “R-word.” Well, McConnell decided to strike back at such a claim and totally shutdown AOC. Here’s more from The Daily Wire: “I think it’s time to lore the rhetoric related to that subject all across America — everyone knows that’s nonsense,” McConnell replied to Fox Business Network’s Maria Bartiromo when addressed with the accusation. “I was there when Martin Luther King gave that ‘I Have A Dream’ speech. I was there as an observer when President Johnson signed the Voting Rights Act,” McConnell continued. “Look, I’ve got nothing to apologize [for] on this front. We ought to tone rhetoric down across the country. Throwing around words like racism, routinely applying it to almost everything — let’s talk about the issues.” McConnell’s response came two days after Ocasio-Cortez criticized him for not speaking out against President Donald Trump’s earlier remark that members of the so-called “Squad” should “go back and help fix the totally broken and crime infested places from which they came.” The Squad, consisting of Ocasio-Cortez, Minnesota Rep. Ilhan Omar, Michigan Rep. Rashida Tlaib, and Massachusetts Rep. Ayanna Pressley, addressed the heated exchange Monday, and further attacked Trump on a variety of fronts, claiming that he was promulgating a white nationalist agenda and “allowing millions of Americans to die from lack of health insurance.” “[The Squad] wants to take America into a socialist country — I think it’s important to remember that you don’t need…

Berkeley Changing Name For City’s ‘Manholes’ To ‘Maintenance Holes.’ The Reason Why Is Ridiculous

This is just plain stupid.

Published

The city of Berkely, California has decided to change the name of the city’s “manholes” to “maintenance holes” as part of an effort to remove gendered language from the city’s legal code so they can be more “inclusive.” Folks, the insanity that left-wing progressivism ultimately leads to and why we must fight hard to stop it. via Daily Wire: NBC News reported that on Tuesday, the city council adopted a first reading of a new ordinance which removes “gender preference language” from Berkeley’s municipal code. NBC also reported that city council member Rigel Robinson, the youngest member of the council, orchestrated the new ordinance. “It is Berkeley being Berkeley, and what that means is it’s Berkeley being inclusive,” Robinson told the outlet’s bay-area affiliate. “A male-centric municipal code doesn’t reflect the reality of the city of Berkeley.” The full list of changed words is reminiscent of the decades-old move to change words that typically end in “-man” to ending with “-person,” such as “salesperson” instead of “salesman.” But the Berkeley list goes further, changing words in a way that would make a Gender Studies professor proud. Instead of “manhole,” city code must now say “maintenance hole.” Instead of “brother” or “sister,” city code must now say “sibling.” Instead of “manpower,” city code must now say either “human effort” or “workforce.” The term “manmade” is also getting scrubbed. It is to be replaced with “human-made” or “artificial,” or “manufactured.” Yeah, we’re just as surprised as you about the inclusion of “MANufactured,” but apparently it’s allowed. The word “master” is now replaced “captain,” “skipper,” or “pilot.” Yes, this is totally for real. This isn’t just another prank article or satire. These folks are legitimately this crazy. Political correctness is destroying America, ravaging freedom of speech, one of the most important, foundational truths…
