    Special counsel Robert Mueller is reportedly investigating Dick Cheney's former top national security aide, according to the Daily Beast. John Hannah, who worked on Trump's State Department transition team, has not been accused of any wrongdoing at this point, but he is affiliated with two men who are already being questioned by Mueller.
  • John Kerry, Meet George Logan Is it a crime to meet with Iranian officials?

    George Logan, call your office. That’s my reaction to news that former Secretary of State John Kerry has, by his own account, been meeting privately with Iranian officials to try to save the nuclear deal. Logan was the Pennsylvania politician whose unauthorized efforts to end the Quasi-War between France and America led to the Logan Act of 1799, which outlaws freelance diplomacy. The New York Post has called Mr. Kerry’s conniving a “textbook violation” of the law. President Trump, after all, has pulled out of the nuclear accord and decided on a different course. Iran’s leaders, at least for the...

    WASHINGTON, Sept. 1 - The Pentagon's policy office, where a lower-level analyst is under suspicion of passing secrets to Israel, was deeply involved in deliberations over how the United States should deal with Iran, its conservative Islamic government and its nuclear weapons ambitions - all issues of intense concern to Israel as well. The analyst, Lawrence A. Franklin, a Farsi-speaking specialist on Iran in the office, participated in a secret outreach meeting with an Iranian opposition figure, had access to classified intelligence about Iran's nuclear program and was one of many officials involved in drafting a top-secret presidential order on...

    By Hassan Mahmoudi There is only one day left before the sanctions on Iran's ruling mullahs , which the Trump administration says are the new U.S. sanctions on Iran’s oil industry, if they are imposed as expected, will be painful for Iran's tyrannical rulers, The US will add 700 individuals and companies to a list of blocked entities And with Iranian leaders continuing their malign behavior, huge Iranian treasure is being directed away from the Iranian people and towards fueling Iran’s regional ambitions, as well as its human rights abuses, and destabilizing activity in Syria.

    People who are in the know, have probably seen the following video and heard failed presidential candidate Hillary Clinton’s introduction of George Soros at the “Take Back America Conference” in June 2004. However, for those who have not, this might be an eye opener as not only does Clinton introduce Soros, but claims that we need men like him who are “fearless” and willing to “step up” when it counts. She is obviously indicating that he should get involved in the American political process, which he has done with billions of dollars.Here’s a brief documentary on Soros. Clinton’s comments begin...

    Limp-fisted Democratic Party opponents have not done it. Term limits he himself championed when first elected to Congress in 1988 have not done it. (He has been reelected every two years since.) And too-close associations with slimeballs like Mike Carona, Dave Garofalo, Jack Abramoff, Jeffrey Ray Nielsen, Joseph Medawar and even his felony fraudster wife Rhonda have not done it. No, the only way the Orange County congressional delegation is finally going to rid itself of Rep. Dana Rohrabacher (R-Havana) is if Donald Trump nominates him for Secretary of State. Years ago, working at a daily newspaper, it was revealed...

    Total, France’s largest energy company, announced on Monday it was pulling out of a $4.8 billion (€4.1 billion) Iranian gas field project, after admitting it was extremely vulnerable to the threat of US penalties against those doing business with Iran. The French group was one of three major energy companies set to help supply the state-of-the-art technology needed to tap into South Pars, the world’s largest natural gas field shared by Iran and Qatar. However, after abandoning the 2015 Iran nuclear accord in May this year, the United States has said it will reimpose sanctions on Iran in two phases,...

    To Venezuela's President Nicolás Maduro, the harsh economic sanctions, coupled with Trump's threat to use force, sounded like a bid for regime change. But it's a longer and more complex process, say analysts. WASHINGTON—The Trump administration slapped tough sanctions on Venezuela last month that for the first time aimed to restrict the teetering southern neighbor’s access to international financial lifelines. And it raised a smoldering question: Is the United States gunning for regime change? For some – including embattled Venezuelan President Nicolás Maduro – any doubts as to the answer were erased by President Trump himself. He punctuated the sanctions...

    With things heating up in the Pacific northeast, people are wondering what a potential war with North Korea means’ in the prophetic picture. Let me be upfront and state that I believe a war with North Korea will transpire, and that they are about to experience fundamental regime change. Let me be clear in saying that the North Korean regime under Kim Jong Un (KJU) will collapse through divine action. Now God may use the military, diplomatic, or economic means, but it will happen because He allows it. As a result, the Gospel will go into North Korea even if...

    CIA chief signals desire for regime change in North Korea By Eli Watkins, CNN Updated 1234 GMT (2034 HKT) July 21, 2017 Washington (CNN)CIA Director Mike Pompeo on Thursday evening offered some of the most aggressive comments yet from the Trump administration with regard to North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un. Although Secretary of State Rex Tillerson has in the past said the US was against forcing Kim out of power or the collapse of his government, Pompeo said that the administration needed to find a way to separate Kim from his growing nuclear stockpile. "It would be a great...

    Thirty years after President Reagan seized upon an historic opportunity to bring down the Iron Curtain, there are growing indications that President Trump can make similarly historic strides in the conflict between the US and the new Evil of our time: Islamic extremism. In its first five months, President Trump’s presidency has witnessed dramatic shifts from the policies normalized by the Obama administration. Few are as significant or wide-ranging as the changes in American dealings with the Islamic Republic of Iran. The new attitude enjoys rare bipartisan support in Congress, and with good cause. The conciliatory policy of Trump’s predecessor...

    The election of Donald Trump last year set the stage for major changes in U.S. foreign policy and particularly American policy toward the Islamic Republic of Iran. It was clear on the campaign trail that Trump’s views on Iran could hardly be more different than those of his predecessor, Barack Obama. Almost six months into his first term the administration is now well positioned to lay the foundation for a lasting Middle East legacy by boldly embracing the goal of regime change in Tehran. Whereas the Obama administration took great pride in the Iran nuclear deal it helped to negotiate,...

    The drums of war are continuing to beat with UN Ambassador Nikki Haley coming out and basically saying the Trump administration is against Syrian president Assad staying in power. Haley said, “regime change is something that we think is going to happen.” “There’s not any sort of option where a political solution is going to happen with Assad at the head of the regime,” Haley said in an interview on CNN’s “State of the Union” set to air Sunday. “If you look at his actions, if you look at the situation, it’s going to be hard to see a government...

    Secretary of State Rex Tillerson said Thursday that “steps are underway” on an international coalition to pressure Syria’s Bashar Assad from power, as President Trump was being briefed on military options for Syria – though what specific steps the U.S. and its allies might take in response to the latest deadly chemical weapons attack remained unclear. America’s top diplomat addressed the Syria crisis a day after Trump declared in the Rose Garden that the chemical strike would not be tolerated. Tillerson pointedly said Russia should “consider carefully” its support for the Assad regime, while calling for an international effort to...

    Former United Nations Ambassador John Bolton told Breitbart News Daily SiriusXM host Raheem Kassam on Thursday that he still believes the only real solution for Iran is “regime change.” “The only longterm solution is regime change in Tehran,” said Bolton. “The ayatollahs are the principal threat to international peace and security and the Middle East.” Bolton continued, “Their ouster won’t bring sweetness and light to the region, that’s for sure, but it will eliminate the principal threat.” “I think the people of Iran would long for a new regime. I think we saw that in the summer of 2009 with...
