    Iran’s Minister of Foreign Affairs said in a heated speech today in Parliament that he “coordinated” everything with the now dead commander of the Quds Force. Javad Zarif said that he had weekly sessions with Qasem Soleimani and coordinated with him. “In regional talks, whatever we did, we coordinated with each other,” he said today. He told lawmakers who were calling him out for “lying” that those who knew Soleimani and other known regional terrorists knew that he worked very closely with Soleimani. “Those who know Soleimani the Martyr and Seyed Hassan Nasrollah, and the Iraqi, Lebanese, and Palestine Resistance,...
  • UN slams Donald Trump for killing Iranian General Soleimani because there was 'insufficient evidence he was behind an ongoing or imminent attack'

    The January U.S. drone strike in Iraq that killed top Iranian general Qassem Soleimani and nine other people represented a violation of international law, a U.N. human rights investigator said on Monday. The United States has failed to provide sufficient evidence of an ongoing or imminent attack against its interests to justify the strike on Soleimani's convoy as it left Baghdad airport, said Agnes Callamard, U.N. special rapporteur on extrajudicial, summary or arbitrary executions. The attack violated the U.N. Charter, Callamard wrote in a report calling for accountability for targeted killings by armed drones and for greater regulation of the...

    Tehran prosecutor Ali Alqasimehr said Trump and 35 others whom Iran accuses of involvement in the Jan. 3 strike that killed Gen. Qassem Soleimani in Baghdad face “murder and terrorism charges,” the state-run IRNA news agency reported. Alqasimehr did not identify anyone else sought other than Trump, but stressed that Iran would continue to pursue his prosecution even after his presidency ends. Alqasimehr also was quoted as saying that Iran requested a “red notice” be put out for Trump and the others, which represents the highest-level arrest request issued by Interpol. Local authorities generally make the arrests on behalf of...

    The Israeli intelligence service, Mossad, assassinated a top Syrian rocket scientist on Saturday using a car bomb, the New York Times first reported Tuesday. The scientist, Aziz Asbar, led a confidential unit known as “Sector 4” at the Syrian Scientific Studies and Research Center developing cutting edge missile technology designed to further Syria’s efforts to initiate the long range bombing of Israeli cities. Asbar was killed along with his driver near the research center, which lies in the town of Masyaf and has long been believed to host chemical weapons development. The center has twice been the target of Israeli...
  • Iranian Government Releases Anti-Semitic ‘Final Solution’ Poster

    The Iranian government released a profoundly anti-Semitic poster about Palestinian liberation that invoked Nazi Germany’s “final solution” plan for European Jews. Ali Khamenei, the supreme leader of the Islamic Republic of Iran, published a poster on Tuesday that reads “Palestine will be free. The final solution: Resistance until referendum.” Khamenei’s office released the image to celebrate Quds Day, an annual rally in Iran that calls for the destruction of Israel, according to The Jerusalem Post. The poster — which was displayed in English, Arabic and Farsi — depicts a conquered Jerusalem alongside the late Islamic Revolutionary Guards Corp Quds Force...

    So long as the world is entertaining worst-case scenarios, the media does Americans no favors in omitting that Iran-Hezbollah has for years prepared to strike in their own hometowns. Weirdly absent from much of the professional speculation about where and how Iran will exact its promised “severe revenge” for the U.S. drone strike killing of Quds Force Gen. Qassem Suleimani is mention of the dead man’s highly suggestive hint. During a time of intense saber rattling between Iran and President Donald Trump in July 2018, Suleimani gave a speech during which he called out the American president: “Mr. Gambler, Trump!...

    I first met Qassem four years ago, at the height of the European refugee crisis. The BBC had sent me to capture the stories of Mideast migrants, thousands of whom would daily wash ashore on the Greek isles. He was around 15, malnourished and clearly traumatized. As we sat together in a cabin at a ­migrant camp on the island of Lesbos, his hunched body rocked backward and forward. His marginal life amounted to a speck of dust amid the geopolitical earthquakes that were remaking the region at the time. Yet the story he told opened a window onto the...

Klobuchar & Warren attended and voted "nay", 53 Republicans, 10 Democrats, and Independent Angus King supported the amendment introduced by Sen. Ted Cruz, praising President Trump, and the action terminating the late piglet pair.

    The Trump administration has trained its eye on the new leader of Iran’s Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps Quds force, but may have a hard time targeting a commander expert in delegating behind the scenes and operating below the surface. Esmail Qaani, a bespectacled, gray-haired 62-year-old man, assumed the top post in Iran’s primary foreign operations military wing just hours after the U.S. drone strike that killed his predecessor, Gen. Qassem Soleimani, on Jan. 3. Emerging from the background, Qaani’s first major public appearance came standing near Iran's Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei on Jan. 6 as he delivered a tearful...

    Republicans are fuming over a planned move by Democrats to consider Iran legislation alongside a commemorative coin bill, saying the floor maneuver is designed to prevent changes to the Democratic-backed measures reining in President Trump’s ability to wage war. The legislative maneuver would prevent House Republicans from using a procedural tool to alter the two Iran bills at the eleventh hour since the measures would be tacked on as amendments to the coin bill. GOP lawmakers accused Democrats of attempting to silence them and said the move would set a bad precedent. “If that's the games they're going to play,...

    A new poll shows Americans are more likely than not to support President Donald Trump’s decision to order a drone strike that killed an Iranian general, even amid widespread skepticism about his foreign policy overall. The poll by The Associated Press-NORC Center for Public Affairs Research was taken about two weeks after the Jan. 3 strike that killed Gen. Qassem Soleimani in Iraq. It found that 41% of Americans approved of the action while 30% disapproved of it. The rest didn’t express an opinion either way. …

    American Thinker ^ | 01/24/2020 | Andrea Widburg
    When President Trump ordered the military to strike Qassem Soleimani, a legitimate military target responsible for the deaths of hundreds of troops, Democrats were up in arms. How dare Trump bait the Iranians by striking someone so close to Ayatollah Khamenei? They were certain that Trump had just ignited World War III. Republicans were more confident that the strike would, at the very least, remove a dangerous character from the Iranians' forty-year-long war against America and, at the best, topple the regime. This last belief was based upon the fact that the Iranian regime is fragile now that Trump...

    For Democrats and their allies in the media, the standard for evaluating every situation is no longer an objective view of the facts at hand. It is, “How can we aim the news of the day against President Trump?” Sometimes this is amusing. CNN “journalists” turn themselves into experts on the proper way to feed koi. The media becomes more horrified at how the president delivers supplies to hurricane victims than at the devastation of the hurricane itself. And important questions become, did the White House misgender Conan, the hero combat dog? It’s always unhinged, but sometimes it leads to...

    Seldom, if ever, has such a powerful point been made by a Congress member without saying anything. 'I will note that there was no response' In fact, the tool U.S. Rep. Brian Mast, R-Fla., used to show the value of President Trump's decision to kill Iranian terror leader Qassem Soleimani was silence. See the powerful moment: @RepBrianMast asks for name of fallen service member that doesn't justify Soleimani killing: "I will sit here and wait..." [silence] @RepEliotEngel: "Thank you, Mr. Mast, I think you've made you're point…" Rep. Mast: "Mr. Chairman, I have not yielded back my time." —...

    Former Obama national security adviser General James Jones (2009-2010) isn’t going to make Democrats happy with what he has to say about the dangers Iran presents and what he thinks about President Donald Trump taking out IRGC Qasem Soleimani. Many Democrats have been pushing the talking point that there was no real reason to take out Soleimani, this despite all his past killing of Americans and the attack on our embassy in Baghdad. The Democrats even tried to handcuff the president’s actions with a War Powers resolution, although it’s symbolic only. It’s an astonishing position to take, especially after...

"It's the weakness of these career politicians that needs to be fought, and I will fight with President Donald Trump every day to defend our nation."

    2020 presidential candidate Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) is calling on financial regulatory agencies to investigate whether President Donald Trump broke the law when he told associates and attendees of his Mar-a-Lago club to expect something “big” in response to Iran’s killing of an American contractor in Iraq. The Daily Beast previously reported that Trump told allies at his Palm Beach club, that he had something “big” in the works to address Iran’s aggressive behavior in the region and that they would read about it “soon.” The president specifically mentioned to some of his associates at Mar-a-Lago that he’d been in...
