Iran is back to saber-rattling this week, and President Trump and his team aren’t having it.

The Iranian regime really ought to take a good, hard look at what provoking the United States would mean for them.

At this stage in world politics, Iran is one of the few major nations in the Middle East that hasn’t been overtly influenced by western powers.  From Iraq to Libya, and Syria to Kuwait, the resource-rich region has long been in the crosshairs of the international community.

A stable Middle East is key to keeping our planet’s economy from a total collapse, and the rest of the world knows it.

So when Iran begins their saber-rattling, US-bashing schtick, it becomes very dangerous to ignore them.  The White House understands this, and is taking action to keep the region from devolving into madness.

Acting Defense Secretary Patrick Shanahan presented a military plan at a meeting of top national security officials last week that would send as many as 120,000 US troops to the Middle East in the event that Iran strikes American forces in the region or speeds up its development of nuclear weapons, The New York Times reported Monday.

Citing administration officials, the Times said it is unknown whether President Donald Trump has been briefed on the plan, including the number of troops. The Times said the meeting occurred days after the Trump administration cited “specific and credible” intelligence last week that suggested Iranian forces and proxies were targeting US forces in Syria, Iraq and at sea.

The meeting included Bolton, Gen. Joseph Dunford, the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, CIA Director Gina Haspel and Director of National Intelligence Dan Coats, according to the Times.

Iran has been seething in the direction of the United States, and western civilization as a whole, after coming under the rule of a society-reversing Islamic regime whose human rights reversals have inspired a great many squelched uprisings.

Jon Voight Releases Awesome New Video Praising Trump, Left Will Hate It

Great video!

Published

on

Actor Jon Voight has not been shy about his support for President Trump, and he continues to be one of the few outspoken conservative voices in Hollywood, which in and of itself is a tough gig. Yet, no matter the hate he gets, he continues to fearlessly proclaim what he believes in, with no worry of the consequences. In fact, Voight just released a new video where he praises Donald Trump and slams folks on the left for their attacks on the president. Here’s more from The Daily Wire: Voight started by targeting the Left: This is not peace. This is not love; this is hate among the radical Left. No amount of “book-smart” will show the given policy of what truth stands for. Truth is a powerful emotion. Love is what we should be voting for, and I must say that we, the Republican party, have voted for renewal, for a place of safety, a community where all can have peace. But this is war among the Left; they have hate; it’s like a venom. No words of God, no words of love, but a radical emotion of hate. He segued to the president: “I’ve said this many times and I am saying it again from the deep truths of my heart and soul: President Trump is a man of truths, love and justice for the American people and also for the people of a sacred place: Israel. Not only does he love our country, the United States of America, but he has a love for the people of all nations. “ Voight concluded with the hope that members of the Left would put aside their hatred and stand for liberty and justice: “Let us pray for peace; let us pray for this country, that President Trump will take…

AOC’s At It Again. Look What She Wants To Be Abolished Now.

More nuttiness from the Peanut Gallery.

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez just cannot keep herself from saying something stupid to save her life. It’s become so common place to see a news story about something ridiculous that’s come out of her mouth that it almost feels odd when there’s not a story about her somewhere. AOC recently posted an Instagram Live Story, something she loves to do, despite how often she makes a fool of herself, mocking the U.S. voting system, calling for the abolishment of the Electoral College. These folks absolutely want to silence anyone and everyone who doesn’t live in a major urban center, which also happen to be run mostly by liberals. via The Daily Wire: “We’re coming to you live from the Electoral College,” Ocasio-Cortez said as she recorded an empty desert highway. “Many votes here as you can see — [it’s a] very efficient way to choose leadership of the country. I mean, I can’t think of any other way, can you?” The self-proclaimed “radical” congresswoman cited a March 2019 report from New York Magazine’s daily Intelligencer newsletter titled “Here’s Every Defense of the Electoral College — and Why They’re All Wrong.” She subsequently noted that the report is for “all the Republicans getting big mad [because] the electoral college is, in fact, a scam.” Ocasio-Cortez touched on several intersecting points, all of which are based on the underlying idea that the American voting system is racist and therefore is discriminatory against minorities. “The Electoral College has a racial injustice breakdown,” Ocasio-Cortez said. “Due to severe racial disparities in certain states, the electoral college effectively weights white voters over voters of color, as opposed to a ‘one person, one vote’ system where all are counted equally.” AOC went on to say, “You may have heard this Electoral College argument the most: that families…
