Mullah Madness: Expanded US Sanctions End ‘Channel Of Diplomacy Forever,’ White House Is ‘Afflicted By Mental Retardation’

A spokesman for Iran’s Foreign Ministry, Abbas Mousavi, said in a tweet that Trump’s decision to increase economic sanctions on Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei and other top Iranian officials ends the “channel of diplomacy forever.”

Mousavi said “Imposing useless sanctions on Iran’s Supreme Leader (Ayatollah Ali Khamenei) and the commander of Iran’s diplomacy (Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif) is the permanent closure of the path of diplomacy. Trump’s desperate administration is destroying the established international mechanisms for maintaining world peace and security.”

The new sanctions are meant to hinder Iran’s access to the U.S. financial system as well as their U.S. assets. These steps are intended to further cripple their already ravaged economy.

Following Trump’s decision to withdraw from the Obama administration’s 2015 nuclear deal and restore sanctions, tensions have escalated between Washington and Tehran.

Trump said the sanctions “will deny the supreme leader and the supreme leader’s office and those closely affiliated with him and the office access to key financial resources and support.” He added “that the sanctions were in part a response to the shooting down of the drone, but would have happened anyway.”

Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin said the sanctions “lock up literally billions of dollars more of assets.”

Hostilities erupted two weeks ago following the attack on two oil tankers, one Japanese and one Norwegian, in the Gulf of Oman. U.S. intelligence places the blame on Iran for those incidents, however, the country denies it.

Iran does take responsibility for shooting down a U.S. drone last week they claim was flying through Iranian airspace, which the U.S. emphatically denies.

Last Thursday, ten minutes before the U.S. was to poised to strike three Iranian military targets in retaliation for the drone attack, Trump cancelled the mission. He asked a general how many Iranians would die as a result. When he was given an answer of 150, he aborted the strike feeling that it wasn’t a proportionate response.

For obvious reasons, Iran would prefer to see a Democrat win the presidency in 2020. They know that a war with the U.S. would be very unpopular among most American voters. If Trump were to engage the U.S. into a new war in the Middle East, his odds of reelection would decline.

From this perspective, Iran is “baiting” Trump with their provocative acts. They would like nothing more than a U.S. attack on their country.

Trump campaigned on the senselessness of engaging in foreign wars. He is well aware of Iran’s strategy and he does not want the U.S. to become involved in a new war. But on Monday, he told reporters that his “restraint is not limitless.”

According to Fox News, National Security Adviser John Bolton “said the U.S. is open to negotiations, all Iran needs to do is “walk through that open door.” It was unclear if his response was in connection to Mousavi’s tweet.”

Fox also confirmed that the “U.S. military carried out a cyberattack against Iran last Thursday…Sources said U.S. Cyber Command launched the cyberattack targeting the Iranian intelligence and radar installations used to down the U.S. Navy drone last week.”

Aside from their menacing rhetoric, Iran’s position weakens every day as a result of the sanctions. And, if they continue perpetrating hostile acts, other nations may finally decide to join the U.S. and take action against the country. They can’t go on targeting ships and aircraft in the region at will and expect no consequences.

Unfortunately, we’re not at that point yet. On Monday, the United Nations Security Council condemned the attacks on the oil tankers and the drone, but they failed to condemn Iran.

Following the meeting, Acting U.S. Ambassador to the U.N. Jonathan Cohen spoke to reporters:

The Security Council and all nations should try to imagine the future of global air travel if a country can shoot down an aircraft merely for being in its flight information region. Indeed, we’ve already seen air carriers from around the world avoid Iran’s flight information region as a result.

Iran must understand that these attacks are unacceptable. It’s time for the world to join us in saying so.

The coordinates of the drone’s flight path and location make clear the aircraft at no point entered Iranian airspace. Iran’s claims to the contrary are false and rely on an argument that the U.S. aircraft was in Iran’s flight information region. But, a country’s flight information region is not the same as their airspace. The flight information region extends much further.

Iran should, as I said two weeks ago, meet diplomacy with diplomacy—a call Iran described as inflammatory.

Iran’s UN Ambassador Majid Ravanchi told reporters, “You can’t start a dialogue with somebody who is threatening you, intimidating you…The U.S. decision today to impose more sanctions against Iran is yet another indication that the U.S. has no respect for international law and order as well as the views of the overwhelming majority of the international community.”

Fox reported that, during the meeting, Germany’s Ambassador Christoph Heusgen read a statement on behalf of Germany, the United Kingdom and France. It said, “These developments risk miscalculation and conflict. We call for de-escalation and dialogue, with full respect for international rules.”

So, as I said, we’re not there yet. Most countries are putting their own economic interests ahead of what they surely have to see with their own eyes. Hopefully one day they will acknowledge the obvious.

Teenager Tells His Teacher There Are Only 2 Genders. The School Suspends Him for Not Being ‘Inclusive’

Westlake Legal Group scottish-teen-suspended-two-genders-SCREENSHOT-620x329 Teenager Tells His Teacher There Are Only 2 Genders. The School Suspends Him for Not Being ‘Inclusive’ Uncategorized Front Page Stories Featured Story

In Aberdeenshire, Scotland, a teen told his teacher there are only two genders.

The teacher didn’t agree.

As reported by the Daily Mail, the instructor had told his class that a website which only allowed for two gender options was “old fashioned.”

The 17-year-old spoke up, saying that male and female are the only two, biologically.

For taking a position that was “not inclusive,” he was kicked out of class.

Later, the teacher discussed the issue with the boy privately — and the kid secretly videoed it.

On the recording, the molder of skulls full of mush can be heard telling the teenager his opinions should be relegated to his “own house.”

A friend of the disagreeing dude told the Mail why he recorded the conversation:

“He decided to film the teacher because he wanted to show what was going on in schools today for simply stating there are only two genders. He has nothing against anyone who identifies as LGBTQ, but completely disagrees that there are more than two genders and that it’s a social construct. He believes telling kids that boys are girls and girls are boys is a very dangerous thing and wanted to get his views across to the teacher. His view is that scientifically there are only two genders. This new gender theory that there are unlimited genders is something that should be discussed and debated – not just thrown into a class discussion and if you disagree you get kicked out of the room.”

In the video — which has been seen nearly 100,000 times on YouTube — the teen explains, “‘I think it’s silly to have anything other than two genders, Sir.”

The teacher drops the hammer:

“Could you please keep that opinion to your own house? Not in this school.”

He also points out, “Not every policy is scientific.”

And it’s the pupil’s fault:

“You chose to make an issue of making a point that is contrary to policy.”

As per the Mail, in response to the hubbub, an Aberdeenshire Council spokesperson asserted that the teacher’s right:

[He] said the public sector has a legal duty to show ‘due regard’ to certain “protected characteristics” – including age, sex and “gender reassignment.”

He added: “It is important to understand the context of any video clip taken without a person’s consent. In our schools, fostering good relations among different groups can be a real challenge but our aim is to support a fairer, inclusive environment for all.”

The boy was suspended for three weeks.

Major Move: Mexico Deploys 15,000 Troops to the U.S. Border in Order to Stop Illegal Immigration

Westlake Legal Group dangerous-1282330_1280-620x413 Major Move: Mexico Deploys 15,000 Troops to the U.S. Border in Order to Stop Illegal Immigration Uncategorized Tariffs Politics nick valencia national guard Mexico luis sandoval International Affairs Illegal Immigration Guatemala Front Page Stories Featured Story donald trump democrats Border Wall Funding border security belize

 

 

On Monday, Mexican Secretary of Defense Luis Sandoval declared the deployment of 15,000 soldiers to the border in order to stave off the enormous amount of illegal immigration into the U.S.

CNN reporter Nick Valencia tweeted:

“Mexico has deployed almost 15,000 troops to the US-Mexico border to curve migration flow. An additional ~2,000 National Guard elements have also been deployed across the country’s southern border with Guatemala & Belize.: MX Secretary of Defense Luis Sandoval.”

As per CNN, the announcement was made in Cancun.

The 2,000 National Guard members serve to bolster the 4,500 troops already at the Central American border.

The news comes at the end of a long line of efforts by the Trump White House (here) to engage Mexico’s assistance in quelling America’s border crisis (here and here).

Of course, Trump hasn’t just been fighting our neighbors to the south in order to secure America; he’s been battling Democratic congresspeople elected by Americans to secure America in order to…secure…America (here).

As for Mexico, most recently, The Donald laid a 5% tariff on ’em:

But that was called off:

So what’s next? It remains to be seen. For now, presumably, the 15,000 soldiers will help reduce the influx of those coming into the U.S illegally. But there’s still certainly a whole lot more work to do and changes to make.

And the promised wall is yet to stand.

What are your thoughts on all this? Do you believe the deployment will help? Let us all know in the Comments section.

Huh?? Alexandria ‘Never Again’ Ocasio-Cortez Now Claims Liz Cheney Compared Detention Centers to the Holocaust, Not Her

Alexandria ‘Never Again’ Ocasio-Cortez Now Claims Liz Cheney Compared Detention Centers to the Holocaust, Not Her Uncategorized Politics Liz Cheney Illegal Immigration holocaust Front Page Stories Featured Story donald trump democrats Congress AOC Allow Media Exception Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez

Sometimes in politics, people say things that I can’t believe are falling out of their mouths.

And I think, “Either they don’t have a brain, or they think Americans don’t have brains.” Because no reasonable person would take their comments seriously.

One such person bestowing these moments is Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez. I’m not suggesting she doesn’t have a brain; I’m just saying I remain mystified.

And there’s a whole lotta myst around her comments Monday concerning the ill-conceived description of America’s “concentration camps” at the southern border.

Last week, AOC stuck up a steel pole during a lightning storm via her Instagram video lamenting President Trump’s “Never-Again”-style “concentration camps” (here, herehere, and here).

Liz Cheney wasn’t impressed, so she tweeted this:

Less than 20 minutes later, Alexandria paddled the ping pong ball back over the net:

Well, the 29-year-old’s now saying that Rep. Cheney is responsible for her words:

Huh??

Here’s an exact quote from Alexandria’s video:

“The United States is running concentration camps on our southern border, and that is exactly what they are — they are concentration camps. And, um, if that doesn’t bother you, I don’t, I don’t know, I like, we can have, okay whatever. I want to talk to the people that are concerned enough with humanity to say that ‘Never Again’ means something. The fact that concentration camps are now an institutionalized practice in the ‘Home of the Free’ is extraordinarily disturbing, and we need to do something about it.”

She said “‘Never Again’ means something.” She didn’t say it doesn’t mean something. Nor did she say, “Liz Cheney is pulling the string on my back and speaking.”

If it “means something,” then what does it mean??

The phrase is an explicit reference to the Holocaust:

Yet, somehow, AOC topped off with this tweet, which included Liz’s post as (non)proof that Cheney said what in actuality she herself did.

It’s as if she’s convinced herself that up is down, and she’s just continuing forward with it.

And now I’m back to that whole brain thing:

On Saturday, tweeter Benny Johnson asked her to “listen, for once”:

As I posted previously, I don’t believe America and its leaders should be compared to Hitler and the Nazis.

Having said that, if you want to call detention centers concentration camps, then okay. It’s absurd, but “I don’t know, I like, we can have, okay whatever.”

But for the love of Pete, don’t say something and then claim Liz Cheney said it.

#FAIL

‘The View’ Uniformly Gives Pete Buttigieg’s Town Hall Performance the Thumbs Down: He Was ‘P*** Poor’

Westlake Legal Group whoopi-goldberg-what-face-SCREENSHOT-620x349 ‘The View’ Uniformly Gives Pete Buttigieg’s Town Hall Performance the Thumbs Down: He Was ‘P*** Poor’ Uncategorized Front Page Stories Featured Story

[Screenshot from The View, https://twitter.com/TheView/status/1143181849369296896?]

 

On Monday, the left-wing ladies at The View had some things to say about Pete Buttigeig’s recent South Bend town hall.

Apparently, the 2020 candidate’s performance Sunday was “piss poor.”

Man — you know you’re doing a bad job when people feel the need to reference urine in their assessment.

The smalltown mayor — who’d interrupted his Oval Office campaign and temporarily returned to his post — had surely hoped to triumph at the gathering over police brutality and the local fatal shooting of a 54-year-old black man.

But the crowd wasn’t so friendly.

One resident angrily demanded that he “get the racists off the streets,” claiming that — every day — she “[wakes] up scared.”

Another citizen yelled that her 7-year-old grandson is afraid to walk past cops:

“That is not what’s supposed to happen in America, in Indiana in 2019.”

She’s right.

Witness the indignation:

Following a clip of the uproarious assembly, Joy Behar wound up and pitched some solid sense. She loves Buttigieg, but she thinks he was wrong to bail out of his job as mayor to go off vying for the DC Big League:

“I love Mayor Pete very much. I think he’s terrific. But I have this feeling that these guys who are running who are mayors and governors should keep doing their jobs — until they can fix — it’s almost like…when you’re the mayor or a governor, it’s almost like being the father or the mother of the family. And to leave South Bend now and run for president seems like an unfinished job.”

Sooo solid, Joy. Nicely done.

She compared Pete to New York Mayor Bill DeBlasio (who appears to want to play Robin Hood with the citizenry’s moolah — here), citing the Big Apple’s rats:

“It’s like DeBlasio was doing — and, you know, we have a rat population that has risen 38% in New York. … [F]ix the rat problem first, DeBlas, and then run for president. Same with Pete. Mayor Pete, fix what’s going on in South Bend. … Do your job first there, and then run for president. That’s my feeling, and it’s not necessarily something he wants to hear.”

More sense from Joy!

Sunny Hostin joined in to say Pete’s on the skids with his black constituents:

“He has had a problem with the African-American community in South Bend for quite some time. … I’ve spoken to a lot of the African-American community, and…his housing program…was to bulldoze vacant homes and most of those homes were in the African-American community, displacing the African-American community. They were very upset with him, and he didn’t really address it.”

You know what you get when you don’t address it? And when you do that thing Joy said you shouldn’t do? And when you stink it up at the meeting? You get a one-star rating of the urine variety.

Take it away, Meghan:

“And I thought he did a really piss-poor job of listening to those people in that town hall and feeling the pain.”

Iranian Official: If Attacked, Iran Will Throw U.S. in the ‘Garbage Bin of History’ & ‘Erase’ Israel ‘From the Face of the Earth’

You’re surely aware of all the talk of war with Iran over the weekend. If not, please see here, here, here, and here.

On Sunday’s Meet the Press, President Trump warned that a war with the Middle Eastern country would result in “obliteration like you’ve never seen before.”

Well, apparently ours wasn’t the only side to describe a major conflict in extreme terms.

As reported by the Middle East Media Research Institute, on June 20th, former Iranian Minister of Defense General Hossein Dehghan — and current advisor of defense affairs to the nation’s Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei — claimed that, if attacked, Iran will throw America into “the garbage bin of history” and “erase” Israel “from the face of the earth.”

The comments were made during an interview on Iraq’s Al-Nujaba TV:

“It has become clear that what is important to the (Americans) is to protect the lives of their soldiers, and the equipment in their bases in the region. They know full well that most of those bases are within the range of our missiles, and that our military can totally obliterate those bases. They consider this even before they take into account the lives and property of their allies.”

America certainly has a responsibility to protect its soldiers at the outset.

Hossein said Trump knows a war with Iran wouldn’t be easy:

“Trump proved once again that he is merely an agent of his administration’s interests, that a war in this region would not be a walk in the park, that the United States is by no means ready for war, and that he completely understands how strong Iran is. What we understand from the behavior of the Americans is that they fear very much the break out of a war in the region. They are not ready for this, and they cannot assemble an international coalition, because there is no U.N. resolution to begin with. They don’t have global legal consensus to do this.”

There’s a lot to unpack there, but no president should wish to rush into war.

This latest bout of conflict began, of course, when Iran shot down a U.S. spy drone over the Straight of Hormuz Thursday. Trump explained that he called off a retaliatory strike after learning it would cause 150 deaths.

You know that walk in the park Hossein was talking about? He also thinks Israel’s aware of the same:

“Israel has realized that this war would not be a walk in the park. The flame of this war will move immediately to Israel. Israel knows that Iran will erase its entity and uproot it from existence in case of a war. In my personal opinion, this war will not take place – not because America does not want war, but because Iran is strong enough to engage in confrontation. Iran would achieve a great victory, and America would find itself in the garbage bin of history. There would no longer be an Israel on the land of Palestine. We would totally erase it from the face of the earth.”

I’m pretty sure that’s the first time I’ve heard of a Middle Eastern military guy using “in my personal opinion.” It doesn’t much appear to be the trendiest cultural style among the region’s defense leaders.

As for the garbage bin of history, those are fierce words, indeed — ones that I imagine Donald J. Trump would have something to say about.

Concerning the tiny, threatened nation Israel, in my opinion, that’s no small consideration. America must protect its troops, but also its allies.

The rhetoric has risen, but the President made clear to Chuck Todd Sunday — though in a stern way — that he’s here to talk with Iran, not blow them up:

“I’m not looking for war, and if there is, it’ll be obliteration like you’ve never seen before. But I’m not looking to do that. But you can’t have a nuclear weapon. You want to talk? Good. Otherwise, you can have a bad economy for the next three years.”

Into the Belly of the Beast: Brace For Impact – Chick-Fil-A Opens in Ultra-Left-Wing Seattle

Aaand it’s here.

The time has come, folks — it’s right into the belly of the beast for that most controversial and delicious supplier of waffle fries and social justice heartache (here and here): This week, Chick-fil-A opens its first-ever location in ultra-left-wing Seattle.

Hold on to your (kitty) hats.

Eater reports that hipsters will be able to Eat Mor Chikin on Thursday, June 27th.

In a place called — perhaps appropriately — Bitter Lake.

Some hungry fools are most likely already camping out. According to Western Washington’s KIRO Channel 7, that isn’t unusual:

In the past, opening events have included parking lot campouts of fans hoping to win a year’s worth of free meals. They’ve also caused traffic jams for weeks. In 2015, the opening of the Bellevue location had police officers directing traffic to keep cars moving and the crowds continued for several weeks. The city had to implement a new traffic plan to accommodate the massive lines of cars traveling around the restaurant.”

More on the freebies and fanaticism, from Eater:

Die-hard fans of the often-controversial Chick-fil-A chain camped out in subzero temperatures for an opening in Elmhurst, Illinois, suffering through the cold to earn free Chick-fil-A meals for a year. WGN reports that dozens of people camped out overnight in “tents and survival gear” to be among the first inside. It’s a Chick-fil-A tradition to offer the first 100 customers one free meal (a sandwich, fries, and a drink) every week for a year: some fans travel out-of-state for each successive franchise opening in an attempt to score the deal.

Sub-zero! That’s love right there.

Of course, not everyone’s smitten.

Here’s Katie Herzog for The Stranger:

Eater reports that America’s best most homophobic chicken chain will be opening their first location in Seattle’s Bitter Lake, a north Seattle neighborhood I’ve never been to been to but frankly, sounds like my kind of place.

The store is scheduled to open at the end of the month (Happy Pride!) and while one more fast food franchise wouldn’t normally be news, this is semi-notable because Dan Cathy, Chick-fil-A’s president, is a notorious hater of gays. Cathy has given millions to groups that oppose same-sex marriage and has previously said that he supports “the biblical definition of the family unit,” which, I assume, means he thinks fathers should demand their prospective sons-in-law to present the patriarch with a bouquet of 100 foreskins before he’ll allow the couple to marry. Or maybe he’s more into the family unit in which a dad asks a mob to rape his daughters instead of the angels they’d rather rape instead? Either way, dude is a major Jesus freak, and while he backed away from some of his previous anti-gay sentiments after people started protesting his chicken shack, the company isn’t exactly known for its progressive values.

Whoa Nelly.

Well, if you’re not of the Katie Herzog school of thought, you may wanna check out a tasty chocolate shake with whipped cream and a cherry near a lake named for misery in the place that formally Smelled Like Teen Spirit. Starting Thursday, a north Seattle neighborhood will smell like lunch.

‘Holocaust Denier’: Alan Dershowitz Excoriates Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez for Her ‘Concentration Camp’ Remarks

Personally, I’ve been disturbed by the Left’s references to Hitler since the days of George W. Bush.

“He’s Hitler!” signs and bumper stickers would declare.

It’s become the put-down of choice, spreading — in my view — dangerous ignorance to an entire generation. Now, it seems, any Republican leader who comes across as egomaniacal or who leads a war or who merely has conservative leanings may be subject to the Adolf treatment.

In order to compare Trump to Hitler or the border to Nazis, one must A) not know what America does, B) not know what Germany did, or C) both A and B.

Apropos, Harvard Law School Professor Alan Dershowitz threw down on Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez for her claim that America’s running “Never Again”-style concentration camps at the border.

In fact, Alan accused AOC in a radio interview last week of being a “Holocaust denier.”

There is a sort of logic to that.

For more on Alexandria’s Instagram video that ignited a firestorm of criticism from Survivors and Jewish groups among others, please see my coverage here, here, and here.

In her video Monday, she claimed the following:

“The United States is running concentration camps on our southern border, and that is exactly what they are — they are concentration camps. And, um, if that doesn’t bother you, I don’t, I don’t know, I like, we can have, okay whatever. I want to talk to the people that are concerned enough with humanity to say that ‘Never Again’ means something. The fact that concentration camps are now an institutionalized practice in the ‘Home of the Free’ is extraordinarily disturbing, and we need to do something about it.”

Here’s what Alan had to say on SiriusXM’s Breitbart News Tonight:

“Let nobody misunderstand what she was saying. When she used the words ‘concentration camps,’ what she meant to invoke was the Holocaust. She didn’t make distinctions between death camps and detention centers, between Dachau and Auschwitz. Even in the concentration camps that may not have been death camps, so many people died because they were forced laborers and everything like that. And of course, ‘Never Again’ is the direct invocation of the Holocaust.”

Alan’s analysis of denial:

“By making that comparison, she becomes a Holocaust denier, because what’s she’s saying is: ‘Gee, if all that Hitler did is what Trump is doing on the southern border,’ then there were no death camps, there were no killing squads, there was no genocide, there was no murder of a million-and-a-half babies, there were no selections where people were picked based on their health and whether they were twins and subjected to the most gruesome form of punishment.’”

As I said, there’s a certain logic to it. But if she can be said to have denied the Holocaust, then the same accusation must be laid at the feet of the media, social media users, and — yes — conservatives who’ve made similar allegations against select left-wingers.

Evil exists in 2019, and I have no doubt government can still be its instrument, But in my opinion, no one should accuse contemporary America or any of its current or past leaders of being Nazi Germany or Hitler. The 1930’s and 40’s saw an unprecedented evil arise. Millions of men, women, and children were rounded up at gunpoint — solely due to their heritage — and murdered en masse.

The victims of the Holocaust deserve our remembrance, respect, and reverence. And our understanding that there’s no way to understand what they endured. Their suffering should never be diminished by way of reference to lesser deeds.

Delving further, I invite you to read Gene Simmons’s powerful tribute to his mother — Holocaust survivor Flora Klein. She loved America, because she knew what it meant.

What do you think of all this? I look forward to learning in the Comments section.

Thank you for reading.

Wow: Tucker Carlson Calls National Security Advisor John Bolton a ‘Bureaucratic Tapeworm’

Here’s a put-down you may not have heard before.

On Friday, Tucker Carlson gave National Security Advisor John Bolton a severe tongue-lashing, calling the official a “bureaucratic tapeworm.”

How’s that for original.

Tucker was excoriating John for, in his view, pushing from within the administration for a war with Iran.

The comment came in the aftermath of a tense sequence of events — Iran’s Revolutionary Guard shot down a U.S. spy drone over the Strait of Hormuz Thursday. Subsequently, the President eyed an attack, ultimately pulling back due to the projected casualties (here).

Trump expressed his preference for something more “proportionate.”

Tucker played a clip highlighting the above, capping it wth the wish that “our leaders contemplating war” would ask that “most basic of all questions.”



“The whole thing, in the end, offended his sense of decency,” Tucker praised. But, he asserted, “Policymakers in Washington crave a war with Iran”

The host cut to “CNN’s 36-year-old national security analyst attack the President yesterday.”

And then:

“Only in foreign policy circles do people say things that stupid. In fact, last night was a high point in the Trump presidency. … Ill-advised wars are like doing cocaine: The initial rush rises your poll numbers, but the crash is inevitable and in this case, it would be horrible.

How’d we get so close to war with Iran?

According to Carlson, in so many words, a bunch of people don’t care about its cost.

Tucker profiled “Left-wing New York Times columnist Bret Stephens” who “took a break from attacking Donald Trump” to celebrate “neocon” John Bolton’s hiring in April of 2018.  “Stevens assured MSNBC viewers that John Bolton was a great choice because he would push the president toward war.”

Next, the host played war-friendly (harsh and hilarious) clips of Bolton, followed by this:

“John Bolton is a kind of bureaucratic tapeworm. Try as you might, you can’t expel him. He seems to live forever in the bowels of the federal agencies, periodically reemerging to cause pain and suffering — but critically somehow never suffering himself.

“His life really is Washington in a nutshell: Blunder into obvious catastrophes again and again, refuse to admit blame, and then demand more of the same. That’s the John Bolton life cycle. In between administration jobs, there are always cushy think-tank posts, paid speaking gigs, cable news contracts. War may be a disaster for America, but for John Bolton and his fellow neocons, it is always good business.”

Wow.

Watch the video above. And never get into an insult match with Tucker Carlson.

President Trump Warns Iran: War Would Bring ‘Obliteration Like You’ve Never Seen Before’

Westlake Legal Group trump-meet-the-press-iran-SCREENSHOT-620x332 President Trump Warns Iran: War Would Bring ‘Obliteration Like You’ve Never Seen Before’ white house washington D.C.

During a taped interview Friday — which aired on Sunday’s Meet the Press — President Trump warned that, if the U.S. attacks Iran over its development of nuclear weapons, things are gonna get reeeal ugly:

“I’m not looking for war, and if there is, it’ll be obliteration like you’ve never seen before. But I’m not looking to do that. But you can’t have a nuclear weapon. You want to talk? Good. Otherwise you can have a bad economy for the next three years.”

Notably, Trump explained that he’s willing to have a sit-in with Iranian leaders to prevent such a Middle East malady.



The Prez’s remarks come after Friday’s hubbub over Iran’s Revolutionary Guard having shot down a U.S. spy drone over the Strait of Hormuz (here), which occurred amid already significant tension (here and here).

Trump called off a strike “10 minutes” before it was set for launch, citing the projected casualties.

Speaking to host Chuck Todd, the Commander-in-Chief called it a “modest but pretty, pretty heavy attack schedule.”

As I covered previously, for now, sanctions are the name of the game (here). They begin Monday.

But no matter what — and no matter what it takes to stop it — Trump warned, “They cannot have a nuclear weapon. … They cannot have a nuclear weapon. They’d use it. And they’re not going to have a nuclear weapon.”
