Trending: Biden Drops Whopper During Stump Speech, Spills Secret

On Thursday, Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, speaking in Cairo, gave an amazingly comprehensive and powerful speech about the Middle East and America’s strength and commitment in which he eviscerated former President Barack Obama for his speech in Cairo in 2009, asserting, “The age of self-inflicted American shame is over.”

Pompeo stated bluntly, “Egypt has always been a land of striving. And yet at times, your aspirations and those of your brethren in the Middle East have seemed impossible to achieve. These lands witnessed convulsions from Tunis to Tehran as old systems crumbled and new ones struggled to emerge. That’s happened here, too.”

Part of the speech:

And at this critical moment, America, your long-time friend, was absent too much. Why? Because our leaders gravely misread our history, and your historical moment. These fundamental misunderstandings, set forth in this city in 2009, adversely affected the lives of hundreds of millions of people in Egypt and all across the region.

It was here, here in this city, that another American stood before you. He told you that radical Islamist terrorism does not stem from an ideology. He told you that 9/11 led my country to abandon its ideals, particularly in the Middle East. He told you that the United States and the Muslim world needed, quote, “a new beginning,” end of quote.

We grossly underestimated the tenacity and viciousness of radical Islamism, a debauched strain of the faith that seeks to upend every other form of worship or governance. ISIS drove to the outskirts of Baghdad as America hesitated. They raped and pillaged and murdered tens of thousands of innocents. They birthed a caliphate across Syria and Iraq and launched terror attacks that killed all across continents.

WATCH:

It is important to know also that we will not ease our campaign to stop Iran’s malevolent influence and actions against this region and the world. The nations of the Middle East will never enjoy security, achieve economic stability, or advance the dreams of their people if Iran’s revolutionary regime persists on its current course.

February 11th will mark 40 years since the oppressive regime came to power in Tehran. America’s economic sanctions against the regime are the strongest in history, and will keep getting tougher until Iran starts behaving like a normal country. The 12 demands that we stated in May remain in force, because the regime’s threat to the region endures.

In Syria, the United States will use diplomacy and work with our partners to expel every last Iranian boot, and work through the UN-led process to bring peace and stability to the long-suffering Syrian people. There will be no U.S. reconstruction assistance for areas of Syria held by Assad until Iran and its proxy forces withdraw and until we see irreversible progress towards a political resolution.

In Lebanon, the United States will work to reduce the threat of Hezbollah’s missile arsenal, which is aimed at Israel and can reach all points inside of that country. Many of these rockets are equipped with advance guidance systems, courtesy of Iran, and that’s unacceptable. Iran may think it owns Lebanon. Iran is wrong.

Public Trust in Mueller Probe Plummets in New Polling

This is BAD NEWS for Mr. Mueller, who’s longstanding and widespread investigation may or may not be nearing an end.

Published

Robert Mueller

For months upon months, the American people have been wearing a rather large albatross around their figurative neck.

For you see, in the shadows of Capitol Hill lurks Robert Mueller:  The Special Counsel tasked, originally, with finding evidence of collusion between the 2016 Donald Trump campaign and the Russian government.

So far, this boogeyman of the GOP has done little but annoy some of the outer fringes of Trump’s former inner-circle, and in no connection to Russia, the Kremlin, or Vladimir Putin yet.  This has led a great many Americans to cast their own doubts on the Mueller probe, wondering instead if this is all but a “witch hunt”, out to gather any and all dirt necessary to keep President Trump from winning reelection.

New polling suggests that more and more Americans are finding themselves in this world of doubt.

Amid signs that special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation into Russian election interference may be near its conclusion, a new USA TODAY/Suffolk University Poll finds that trust in Mueller has eroded and half of Americans now agree with President Trump’s contention that he has been the victim of a “witch hunt.”

Support for the House of Representatives to seriously consider impeaching the president has dropped since last October by 10 percentage points, to 28 percent.

Despite that, the survey shows a nation that remains skeptical of Trump’s honesty and deeply divided by his leadership. A 52 percent majority say they have little or no trust in the president’s denials that his 2016 campaign colluded with Moscow in the election that put him in the Oval Office.

But here’s the kicker…

What’s more, Trump’s relentless attacks on Mueller and his inquiry have taken a toll on the special counsel’s credibility. Now, 28 percent say they have a lot of trust in the former FBI director’s investigation to be fair and accurate. That’s the lowest level to date, and down five points since December.

There are conflicting reports as to the status of Mueller’s investigation, with dueling tales of crescendo and climax appearing nearly daily in the news.

There are some mysteries that the human race may never truly get to the bottom of, and that’s okay.

It’s these ethereal wonderments that add a little spooky spice to our lives.  Everyone has a ghost story, a lot of folks think they’ve seen UFO’s, and how many times have you heard a song on the radio just after thinking about it?

Pop culture is full of these mysteries as well; The Bermuda Triangle, the alleged UFO crash at Roswell, and others have been fascinating people all over the world for ages.

Now it seems as though one of England’s most sinister mysteries has been solved.

A blood-covered shawl found at one of the murder scenes is believed to contain DNA from both butchered victim Catherine Eddowes and the world’s most infamous serial killer.

Researchers at Liverpool John Moores University conducted genetic tests on the sample long-thought to have belonged to the Ripper himself, who they now believe to be Pole Aaron Kosminski.

The process used was painstaking, but for the sake of accuracy.

“We describe for the first time systematic, molecular level analysis of the only surviving physical evidence linked to the Jack the Ripper murders,” the authors  wrote in the Journal of Forensic Sciences.

This is also the second time that Kosminski was scientifically linked to the shawl by DNA.
