Tucker Carlson Slams Iran Escalation: “They’re Liars and They Don’t Care About You”

Carlson warned that the country now “appears to be lumbering toward a new Middle East war,” a confrontation that “official Washington has wanted for decades.”

“Disgraced [former] National Security Advisor John Bolton has made it his life’s mission to start a war with Iran” and could be “finally getting his wish,” added the Fox News host.

“Should you be happy about that?” asked Tucker. “That’s the question. Well, the last time we took John Bolton’s advice in the region, Iran became far more powerful than before we took John Bolton’s advice. Why? Because things are never quite as simple as they claim they are in Washington.”

Trump Asked To Please Stop Making 'Pew Pew' Noises Throughout Space Force Strategy Meeting

WASHINGTON, D.C.—During a recent Space Force strategic meeting held at the White House, President Donald Trump was asked to please stop making “PEW, PEW, PEW” noises and playing with models of fictional starfighters.

Pompeo said, “And so I think that a Space Force accomplishes several obj—”

“PEW PEW PEW! I can’t shake em! Arrrgggg!!!” Trump interrupted as he simulated a dogfight between a Millennium Falcon model and several TIE fighter models used in the X-Wing Miniatures Game. “USE THE FORCE, HAN!”

Trump’s Secretary of State sighed and put his head in his hands. “Mr. President, can you please try to pay att—”

Google and the evil tech giants have done far more damage to America than Soleimani, yet Trump does NOTHING to stop the domestic terrorism of Big Tech

The number of Americans killed by Soleimani is dwarfed by the number of children killed by the CDC and the vaccine industry. There’s no comparison. Yet those of us who dare to expose the danger of vaccine ingredients or share the government statistics of vaccine injuries and deaths are treated by the Big Tech establishment as if we were terrorists.

In Redux of Iraq War Run Up, Media Cheers on Assassination of Soleimani

We seem to have some of that cheering section here. Unless you are zios you need to tag those stories from the MSM as COVER-UP/DECEPTIONS/PROPAGANDA!

Assassinating foreign leaders is a major international war crime under international law, yet across the corporate spectrum, media applauded the bombing, or “precision targeting,” as CNN described it. Unsurprisingly, many conservative media outlets supported the Trump administration’s decision to potentially spark a huge international conflict. The Washington Examiner quoted one “expert” celebrating the killing as more important than Bin Laden’s death and a “massive blow to the regime.”

Soleimani’s Assassination: An Act of Psychological Warfare

Mostafa Afzalzadeh: In many countries, it is the intelligence communities that actually run and control the governments. What is the role of the intelligence services, especially the CIA, in the United States?

Douglas Valentine: The US government officially spends $50 billion a year on intelligence. Much of that is on “foreign” intelligence but nowadays, it’s impossible to determine where foreign intelligence ends and domestic intelligence begins. Especially in regard to psychological warfare aimed at the American people by its own government. Psychological warfare – the shaping of beliefs, and thus political and social movements – is the most highly prized and effective of all intelligence operations.

UPRISING: Hundreds Of ‘First Time’ Pro-Gun Activists Flood NRA Town Hall In Virginia

Hundreds of pro-gun political activists showed up to an NRA town hall in Roanoke, Virginia, on Friday night as the backlash continues to grow over the plans by Virginia Democrats to enact their far-left agenda aimed at decimating Second Amendment rights.

The US unwittingly helped create Qassem Soleimani. Then they killed him.

The reality is that the only thing more dangerous for the US than a world where Qassem Soleimani is living is a one where Qassem Soleimani is dead, murdered on orders of an American President.

Alive, Soleimani would be able to credibly advise patience and caution to an Iranian leadership increasingly pressured by more militant members of the Iranian defense establishment to take a more proactive stance in countering American, Saudi and Israeli policies in the region.

Murdered, Soleimani is transformed into a martyr-hero whose exploits will motivate those who seek to replicate them against an American foe void of the kind of self-constraint and wisdom born of experience.

Far from making the Middle East and the world a safer place to live and work, President Trump’s precipitous assassination of Qassem Soleimani has condemned yet another generation to suffer the tragic consequences of American overreach in the post-9/11 era.

BAGHDAD (AP) — Iraq's Parliament called for the expulsion of U.S. troops from the country Sunday in reaction to the American drone attack that killed a top Iranian general, raising the prospect of a withdrawal that could allow a resurgence by Islamic State extremists.

US-led coalition halts MOST operations, focuses on own forces’ protection in wake of Iranian general’s killing

The US-led coalition has announced it will put most of its operations on hold and focus on ensuring the security of its troops as tensions in the Middle East skyrocket after the death of Iran’s top general at the hands of the US.

The coalition will from now on devote most of its efforts to protecting its troops and bases, a coalition spokesman told journalists, adding that most operations against militant groups have been put on hold. He added, however, that the coalition forces could still carry out some military operations and would act in self-defense should they come under attack.

Earlier, the US-led coalition also officially announced it is suspending all training operations in Iraq.

R. McMaster and Meir Ben-Shabbat, respectively, the Channel 10 report said Thursday.

Trump Warns Iran: 52 Targets Set in Case of Attack–One for Every 1979 Embassy Hostage

President Trump issued a blunt and pointed warning to Iran Saturday evening, saying that the U.S. has plans to attack 52 targets, one for every American hostage the Iranian regime took in the 1979 Tehran embassy takeover, in case of further attacks by Iran. Trump’s warning is in apparent response to a threat reported earlier Saturday by an Iranian general that Iran had identified 35 U.S. targets in the region for possible attack.

Iraqi parliament votes to expel U.S. troops over Soleimani killing

The Iraqi parliament passed a resolution Sunday calling on the government to expel U.S. troops from the country in response to the killing of Iranian Gen. Qasem Soleimani and the leader of an Iraqi militia on its soil.

Why it matters: The legal basis for the U.S. presence in Iraq is that it comes at Iraq's invitation. This vote does not formally revoke that invitation, but is a step along that path. A U.S. exit from Iraq could ultimately be one of the most consequential results of Soleimani's killing, because it would significantly hamper the fight against ISIS and achieve a major Iranian objective.

What they're saying: Iraqi Prime Minister Adel Abdul Mahdi said Iraq "cannot accept" a "political assassination" on its soil. He called the attack a grave violation of Iraqi sovereignty.

American Airstrike in Iraq Is a War Crime – An Illegal Act of War

Without an iota of international authority, discussion or attempted consensus the US President Trump ordered the killing of a hugely popular Iranian General and an Iraqi military leader in Iraq. While travelling in vehicles near to Baghdad airport these individuals were blown to smithereens by a deadly airstrike and instead of international condemnation of this act of terrorism, a war crime, we have the Western media and their political stooges refusing to condemn the US while calling for restraint from Iran. What utter cowardice and hypocrisy!

Soleimani Murder: What Could Happen Next?

First, a quick recap of the situation

We need to begin by quickly summarizing what just happened:

General Soleimani was in Baghdad on an official visit to attend the funeral of the Iraqis murdered by the US on the 29th.

The US has now officially claimed responsibility for this murder

No less alarming is that this creates the absolutely perfect conditions for a false flag à la “USS Liberty“. Right now, the Israelis have become at least as big a danger for US servicemen and facilities in the entire Middle-East as are the Iranians themselves. How? Simple! Fire a missile/torpedo/mine at any USN ship and blame Iran. We all know that if that happens the US political elites will do what they did the last time around: let US servicemen die and protect Israel at all costs (read up on the USS Liberty if you don’t know about it)

After Mossad Targeted Soleimani, Trump Pulled the Trigger

Soleimani was in Baghdad as Iran's official diplomatic representative at the funerals of the militia people we killed earlier. He flew in on a commercial flight and Iran notified the US Military of his arrival.

Trump offered up the life of a US 4 Star General in exchange for Iran not escalating big time. By the way we are hearing that it was a CIA drone,not a US Military drone that murdered the Iranian General. Bet the Pentagon is not too happy.

Trump himself offered up targets:

A Major Conventional War Against Iran Is an Impossibility. Crisis within the US Command Structure

First published on July 2, 2019. Revisions, January 4, 2020

**

America’s hegemonic military agenda has reached a dangerous threshold.

The assassination of IRGC General Soleimani ordered by the President on January 2, 2020 is tantamount to an Act of War against Iran.

President Donald Trump accused Soleimani of “plotting imminent and sinister attacks”: “We took action last night to stop a war. We did not take action to start a war…. we caught him in the act and terminated him.”

US Defense Secretary Mark T. Esper described it as a “decisive defensive action” while confirming that the operation ordered by Donald Trump had been carried out by the Pentagon. “The game has changed” said Defense Secretary Esper.

Anti-War Protests Flood U.S. Streets As American Iraq Airbase Attacked And Numerous Other Locations (Updated)

By Aaron Kesel

Thousands of people took to the streets across the U.S. today to protest against what has become known as “Trump’s War” on social media, more commonly referred to as potentially the start of World War Three. This is amid claims that Northern Baghdad, Balad Airbase, has been struck by missile fire after explosions were also heard in Iraq’s Green Zone and that an Iranian base was also hit by shelling, suggesting the two events are potentially connected.

Update: 8:00 p.m. —

A report from BNO News indicates there was just an airstrike by forces loyal to Khalifa Haftar against a military academy in Libya’s capital Tripoli, killing at least 30 people according to the news agency.

Videos have emerged on the ground from near the U.S. Embassy which show missile fire and planes flying in the dead of night in Iraq.

PETER HITCHENS: The killing of Iranian General Qasem Soleimani was state murder. How can anyone be so bloody stupid?

Did World War Three begin last Thursday night? I fear it may have done. Forgive my language, but on this occasion I think it justified. How can anyone possibly have been so bloody stupid?

We know from history that assassinations can have limitless effects. And when the President of the United States orders the state murder (for this, alas, is what it was) of an Iranian general, it is hard to see a good end.

There will be retaliation. Other countries will be drawn in. Our own ability to make moral objections to such acts is gravely weakened because Donald Trump’s action lies miles outside the laws of civilised war. Iran has no long-range drones (as far as we know), but can you begin to imagine the justified rage in the USA if a senior American general were shot dead on the steps of the Pentagon by an Iranian hit team? Yet what, in the end, would be the moral difference between the two acts? Now we can only tremble at what might come next.

VIPS MEMO: Doubling Down Into Yet Another ‘March of Folly,’ This Time on Iran

January 3, 2020

MEMORANDUM FOR: The President

FROM: Veteran Intelligence Professionals for Sanity (VIPS)

SUBJECT: Doubling Down Into Another “March of Folly”?

The drone assassination in Iraq of Iranian Quds Force commander General Qassem Soleimani evokes memory of the assassination of Austrian Archduke Ferdinand in June 1914, which led to World War I. Iran’s Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei was quick to warn of “severe revenge.” That Iran will retaliate at a time and place of its choosing is a near certainty. And escalation into World War III is no longer just a remote possibility, particularly given the multitude of vulnerable targets offered by our large military footprint in the region and in nearby waters.

Op-Ed: The Line in the Sand

Most Americans did not know Qasem Soleimani until the Israelis found the perfect opportunity to have him assassinated. They gave the Pentagon the orders and kindly handed Donald Trump all the credit while he ate his ice cream and watched it on TV.

Former Acting CIA Director Mike Morell predicted that Gen. Qassem Soleimani's death would ultimately come at a high cost, expecting Iran to retaliate and kill American civilians.

I think the Iranians will go after US Military officers and politicians. Any mass atrocity against American civilians will be a false flag perpetrated against Americans by the district of criminals.

Trump Hit on Iranian Commander Puts a Target on His Own and Top US Generals’ Backs

If Trump really is a renegade the Deepstate boys could assassinate him now and blame it on Iran. They get rid of Trump and they get their war. What a mess! God help us!

America’s top military brass need to understand that thanks to their Commander in Chief’s hit job on Suleimani, they all are now walking around with targets pinned on them. Trump himself, not a man who has ever demonstrated any kind of moral courage in his life, has to know that he has also put a big target on his own ample body.

Trump is Owned by the Rothschilds

Trump's fight with the Fed over interest rates is a scripted farce

There is a very bizarre narrative being circulated in the mainstream economic media and it goes a little something like this:

"The Federal Reserve has capitulated on liquidity tightening yet the U.S. economy is "stronger than ever," isn't that weird?"

Who Towers Behind Trump?

By Michael Collins Piper

An inquiry into the background of flamboyant American entrepreneur Donald J. Trump provides some surprising insights into Trump’s path to power and influence, for the fact is that Trump’s rise to stardom came as a direct consequence of his having functioned as hardly more than a colorful front man for some very wealthy behind-the-scenes sponsors.

Everyone knows, of course, about Trump’s gambling operations and of the wide-ranging links of the gambling industry to organized crime. But the story is much bigger than that. In his own memoir, The Art of the Deal, Trump proudly described how in 1987 he bought his first casino interests when he purchased 93% of the voting stock in the Resorts International gambling concern.

Why Donald Trump Is A Rothschild Puppet

In 1992, Donald Trump was recruited by the Rothschild family in order to further their globalist agenda in exchange for vast sums of cash.

Trump is widely portrayed as a white knight by the alternative media, who hope he will end the New World Order’s dominance over humanity and set us free.

However, compelling evidence suggests Trump is nothing more than a Trojan horse Crown Agent, loyal to the City of London banksters.

“In 1987 Donald Trump purchased his first casino interests when he acquired 93% of the shares in Resorts International. Resorts International has a sordid history which began in the early 1950’s when it evolved from a CIA and Mossad front company which had been established for the purpose of money laundering the profits from drug trafficking, gambling, and other illegal activities. On October 30, 1978, The Spotlight newspaper reported that the principle investors of Resorts International were Meyer Lansky, Tibor Rosenbaum, William Mellon Hitchcock, David Rockefeller, and one Baron Edmond de Rothschild.”

Who Are the Real Terrorists in the Middle East?

Back when I still wore the uniform of a U.S. Army officer, and well before many of my former brothers in arms labeled me a traitor, I taught freshman (“plebe”) history at West Point. I loved asking my cadets provocative questions, the sort of queries they never heard in high school Advanced Placement U.S. history courses. Consider just one. At the end of the class on World War II, I always asked: “What is the moral difference between flying three planes into the Twin Towers and Pentagon—killing 3,000 civilians—and using hundreds of U.S. planes to firebomb Tokyo on March 9, 1945—killing some 90,000 civilians?”

Declassified U.S. Government Documents Claim The West Supported The Creation of ISIS

The Facts:

Documents obtained through the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) as a result of an inquiry made by Judicial Watch show the close connection between the U.S. government and terrorist organizations like ISIS.
Reflect On:

How is this idea still toted as a "conspiracy theory" within the mainstream? Why is the mountain of evidence and witness testimony on this issue never acknowledged? Why do we believe our troops are fighting for our freedom? Is this just propaganda?
