For 35 years the United States has had a horrible relationship with Iran. We may have started it – by putting a man into power that the Iranian people hated and then working hard to keep him there. Then came the Iranian revolution that pitted our government (and our nation) directly against the Iranian people. Then they kidnapped 66 Americans and held them hostage in the American embassy in Iran. They held those poor, innocent civilians hostage for well over a year in an effort to put pressure on the American government.
In the end Ronald Reagan was elected President and then the Iranian kidnappers released their hostages.
Since then our relationship with Iran has been… rocky, to say the least.
Things with Syria haven’t been much better in recent years. In fact, less than a year ago President Obama, through his Secretary of State, John Kerry was trying to make the case that we go to war in Syria – against the ruling regime. Thankfully, our representatives stood against the Obama administration and did not send us to war.
At this point, that decision is turning out to be a good thing for President Obama as well.
It seems that less than a year after threatening war with the Assad regime in Syria, President Obama may need Syria to help stop the ISIS threat in Iraq.
There’s a battle raging inside the Obama administration about whether the United States ought to push away from its goal of toppling Syrian dictator Bashar al-Assad and into a de facto alliance with the Damascus regime to fight ISIS and other Sunni extremists in the region.
As President Obama slowly but surely increases the U.S. military presence on the ground in Iraq, his administration is grappling with the immediate need to stop the ISIS advance and push for a political solution in Baghdad. The 3 1/2-year grinding civil war is Syria has been put on a back burner for now. Some officials inside the administration are proposing that the drive to remove Assad from power, which Obama announced as U.S. policy in 2012, be set aside, too. The focus, these officials argue, should instead be on the region’s security and stability. Governments fighting for survival against extremists should be shored up, not undermined.
“Anyone calling for regime change in Syria is frankly blind to the past decade; and the collapse of eastern Syria, and growth of Jihadistan, leading to 30 to 50 suicide attacks a month in Iraq,” one senior Obama administration official who works on Iraq policy told The Daily Beast.
But not everyone who understands what is happening in Syria and Iraq agrees with the Obama administration’s assessment on partnering with ISIS.
But the view that Assad can somehow be a partner of any kind is vigorously disputed by other senior U.S. officials, especially those who work or have worked on Syria policy. They say the problem of extremism in the region can only be solved by removing Assad from power. Not only is the Assad regime a magnet for terrorism, they argue, but Assad and the extremists inside Syria are working together.
“The people who think Bashar al Assad’s regime is the answer to containing and eventually eliminating the Islamic-based threat do not understand the historic relationship between the regime and ISIS. [They] don’t understand the current relationship between Assad and ISIS and how they are working on the ground together directly and indirectly inside Syria,” Robert Ford, the recently departed U.S. ambassador to Syria, told The Daily Beast. “The people who think Assad’s regime survival is essential have not explained how his survival would solve the problem of extremism in Syria.”
Not only does the Obama administration seem schizophrenic when it comes to Syria, they also seem at a loss for what to do with Iran. After years of living as antagonists with the Iranians, with Secretary of State Kerry even delivered a scathing message to Iran just a couple of days ago.
How can our nation oppose Iran, Syria and Russia (Russia who is Syria and Iran’s technological and military backbone), but then ally ourselves with them against Sunni Islamic terrorism? (Especially when we believe them to be supporters of terrorism themselves!)
Well, I don’t know how we do it… but we’re doing it.
The U.S. and Iran are now fighting alongside one another in a bid to counter the growing threat ISIS poses in the Middle East.
Military expert Joseph Dempsey believes the latest set of aircraft to be delivered to Iraq is Iranian, despite steps being taken to mask its origin.
The U.S. has just announced it’s sending an additional 300 troops to Iraq, raising its total presence in the war-ravaged country to 750.
Those troops will now be working alongside the newly delivered Iranian fighter jets to form an unlikely international military aid package.
Is this where the Obama doctrine on foreign policy has brought us – allying ourselves with violent and antagonistic enemies?
Especially, when they may be as bad as our mutual enemy?

Democrat Lois Frankel Demanding Big Tech Ban Opponent Laura Loomer’s Ads in Blatant Case of Election Interference
Corruptocrat Rep. Lois Frankel is demanding that big tech ban the ads of election opponent, Laura Loomer, in a clear case of illegal election interference.
Corruptocrat Florida Rep. Lois Frankel is demanding that big tech ban the ads of election opponent, Laura Loomer, in a clear case of illegal election interference.
Frankel and her surrogates are urging Google, Facebook, Twitter, and the rest of the usual Big Tech suspects to ban Loomer’s ads so that she will be less competitive in the race for Congress for the incumbent Democrat in Florida’s 21st District seat.
.@GOP candidate Laura Loomer has been banned by Twitter & Facebook for her bigoted rhetoric, & for peddling conspiracy theories.
— Halie Soifer (@HalieSoifer) September 7, 2020
The Loomer campaign struck back at Frankel for calling for censorship and big tech electoral interference.
“Judging from recent public statements, Lois Frankel can’t seem to bring herself to say the name of her opponent, Laura Loomer. According to the Jewish Telegraphic Agency, she either mispronounces Loomer’s name or can’t remember it at all when asked. Frankel, who admits she hasn’t had to run a campaign since she was elected in 2013, is right to be worried about acknowledging her challenger. She knows Laura Loomer is gaining momentum,” Loomer’s chief strategist Karen Giorno said in a press release.
“Spurred into action late last week, Frankel hurriedly sent out a fundraising email. But her selective amnesia about her opponent means she needs help crafting her social media strategy. Mostly, she leans on friends, such as former Obama and Kamala Harris advisor Halie Soifer, who produce pot shots she can simply retweet. It’s no surprise that Lazy Lois is outsourcing her campaign like this. After all, she hasn’t shown up to Congress in months,” Giorno added.
“Frankel should be ashamed,” Giorno said. “We’ve come to expect indifference, snobbery and indolence from this Congresswoman. But even we are amazed to see her endorsing an unambiguous appeal for suppression, especially when she knows that her challenger is the most banned woman in the world already. More to the point, Loomer is also her legitimate opponent, a constituent in Frankel’s district and a citizen of the United States.”
Giorno added that if Frankel is so willing to use her big tech allies to shut down Loomer’s free speech, what will she do to the average American whose views she wants shut down?
“By openly advocating for her political opponent’s voice to be suppressed, Lois Frankel is revealing her contempt and apathy for the rights of voters who overwhelmingly selected Loomer as their candidate during the Republican primary,” Giorno continued.
“Frankel tweeted passionately in November 2019 about the Iranian government’s heavy-handed approach to internet censorship, calling it a ‘human rights violation.’ Apparently, she doesn’t extend the same courtesy to her own constituents,” Giorno wrote.
“This flagrant hypocrisy speaks volumes about the beliefs and attitudes of today’s elitist Democrat Party. Frankel’s indifference to the First Amendment rights of her own constituents is baffling, offensive and profoundly un-American. Palm Beach County voters are watching carefully, and they are not impressed,” Giorno concluded.
You sick and demented democrats viciously attacked me and said my daughter deserved to be killed because I was a Trump supporter.
Laura Loomer stood by me and my family.
You were no where to be found!

Rochester Officers Forced To Cover Names After Protesters Shout Their Addresses, Kids’ Names, Etc.
Time to unleash the police!
Rochester police officers have been forced to hide their identities to protect their families as protesters have begun doxxing them.
“The past couple of months officers’ names have been researched by protesters to put personal information out to the public, putting the safety of their families in jeopardy,” said a statement from RPD Chief La’Ron Singletary, who announced his resignation earlier this week.
“Officers have been allowed to remove their name tags in an effort to prevent their personal information from being spread on social media,” Singletary added.
— The Daily Wire (@realDailyWire) September 11, 2020
Rochester Police Department (RPD) officers have been given permission to cover up their names displayed on their tags to avoid harassment from left-wing protesters, who are screaming out their home addresses, kids’ names and schools, and making taunting calls to their parents in front of them. They are also spreading personal information about the cops via social media.
Local radio show host and journalist Bob Lonsberry posted via Twitter on Thursday: “Peaceful protesters have stood outside the [Rochester] Public Safety Building, read an officer’s name off his uniform, tracked him down on their phones, and called his parents to taunt them. Or held up the phone to show the officer his home address and threaten to come after him there.”
Singletary had his statement read by City Council Chief of Staff Robert Scanlon during a briefing with Democrat Mayor Lovely Warren and city council members on Wednesday. The police chief did not attend the meeting in person. More
‘Peaceful’ protesters who threaten officers or their families are criminals and need to be put in cages. Until society decides enough is enough these thugs will continue terrorizing innocent citizens.
Oh boy, can’t wait to see the mass exodus of cops and the inevitable anarchy that follows because enforcing laws could get their family killed.
— horder (@Letusfight3) September 11, 2020
Doxxing should be a crime and when it involves innocent family members there should be a stiff sentence. In the meantime arrest the rioters and find out who is funding them and put them away for a very long time.
President Trump Nominated For Nobel Peace Prize
Just weeks after helping to broker peace between Israel and the United Arab Emirates President Donald Trump has been nominated for the 2021 Nobel Peace Prize.
The nomination submitted by Christian Tybring-Gjedde, a member of the Norwegian Parliament, lauded Trump for his efforts toward resolving protracted conflicts worldwide. “For his merit, I think he has done more trying to create peace between nations than most other Peace Prize nominees,” Tybring-Gjedde, a four-term member of Parliament who also serves as chairman of the Norwegian delegation to the NATO Parliamentary Assembly, told Fox News.
Eight years of Obama-Biden foreign policy set the world on fire, from ISIS in the MidEast, to PRC island-building in the Pacific.
Donald Trump brokered historic deals between Israel/UAE & Kosovo/Serbia.
Obama’s Nobel Prize was a joke. This is deserved.https://t.co/nB3HAAD2tS

“I’m not a big Trump supporter,” said the Norwegian parliamentarian who nominated Trump for the Nobel Prize. But facts are facts, he says. “The people who have received the Peace Prize in recent years have done much less than Donald Trump. For example, Barack Obama did nothing.” https://t.co/fpILiXs4q9

President Donald Trump has been nominated for the 2021 Nobel Peace Price by a Norwegian official for helping to negotiate peace between Israel and the United Arab Emirates.
The nomination was submitted by Christian Tybring-Gjedde, a member of the Norwegian Parliament, Fox News reports.
Mr Tybring-Gjedde praised the president of the Untied States for his efforts towards resolving international conflicts.
He cited Trump’s “key role” in negotiations between Israel and the United Arab Emirates and the conflict between South Korea and North Korea. More
Democrats freak out:
Settle down, Trumpkins.
“The Norwegians” didn’t nominate Trump for a Nobel prize.
“The Norwegian Peace Prize committee” didn’t nominate him either.
An extremist right-wing member of the Norwegian parliament did. For the second time. Because he’s a fucking right-wing lunatic.

HUGE: Joe Biden has been endorsed by 81 Nobel Prize winners because he’s a mature, sane adult who listens to science and reason.
The other guy has been endorsed by QAnon, racist morons, and big bags of soup.

Watch Angry Knife-Wielding BLM Mob Chase TV Reporter
A reporter and a security guard were chased away by an angry mob of BLM protesters, including one who appeared to be wielding a knife in Rochester.
“Yo, I’m about to kill ‘em, brah,” one man says on the footage as the reporter and the guard run away.
A news reporter and a security guard in Rochester were chased away by an angry mob of Daniel Prude protesters, including one who appeared to be wielding a knife, dramatic video shows.
The footage from Sunday’s protests in Rochester shows WHEC reporter Charles Molineaux and a security guard being told to get away by demonstrators marching toward the city’s Public Safety Building.
Protests erupted in the upstate New York city last week following the release of police bodycam footage from March showing cops pressing Prude’s face into the ground until he stopped breathing. Prude, who was black, later died.
“Go home, go home, go home!” the crowd chanted as Molineaux and the guard were confronted in a nearby parking lot, video shows. One protester is seen waving a Black Lives Matter flag.
“Just leave, go that way!” one man tells them. “Go out the parking lot!”
“Get the f–k up out of here!” another man yells.
Molineaux then pulls out his cellphone and snaps a photo, which he later posted on Twitter, before the guard motions that the pair need to leave the area immediately.
They then start walking briskly away from the protesters before two men, including one who appears to be armed with a knife, make threatening motions toward them, the clip shows. More

Not everyone agrees Sunday night’s demonstration at the Public Safety Building was peaceful.
I don’t know why this needs to be said…but…if they are attacking you…then they are not “protestors”…
— gone incognito (@Daddio_7) September 7, 2020
If they are “attacking” then they’re no longer protesters or demonstrators. They become participants in a riot.

“Mostly peaceful” attacks, I hope.

Food Lion Tells Veteran To Remove His American Flag Mask
Time to boycott Food Lion!
An Air Force veteran quit his job at a North Carolina Food Lion after he was told that he could not wear his American flag face mask. “Someone complained about me wearing the flag mask,” Gary Dean told The Todd Starnes Radio Show.
“The manager came up to me and said, ‘I’m embarrassed to even tell you this, but someone came up and said you can’t wear it,’” Mr. Dean said.
A now-former employee of an area supermarket says he quit his job this week after being told he could not wear a face covering depicting the American flag while at work.
Gary Dean says he left his job at the Food Lion in Havelock and is shocked the American flag would be offensive to anyone, especially in a military town.
The 69-year-old’s home is full of patriotic paraphernalia, and Dean, who once anchored at NewsChannel 12, is a veteran himself.
“1970-1976,” Dean said of the years he served in the United States Air Force. “Four of those were active, two of those were inactive reserve.”
He showed NewsChannel 12 a photo album of memories and says memories of his service are an emotional subject.
It was that anger, Dean says, that caused him to quit his job at the Food Lion’s Havelock location Tuesday. Dean says a manager approached him that afternoon, telling him he could no longer wear his face covering with the American flag printed on it. More
Thank you for your service, sacrifice, and for standing up for your principles, Mr. Dean. It is sad and disturbing that we live in the USA and we can’t freely wear our flag without fear of “offending” a snowflake. It’s not a message or an organization, it’s a flag. A flag that he risked his life and fought for.
Someone actually taking a “stand” for our beautiful National Colors!

Roger Stone Ripping Flesh From Dems with ‘Ungagged’ Tour
Former Trump adviser Roger Stone is taking it on the road to rip the Democrats to pieces ahead of the 2020 election.
Former Trump adviser Roger Stone is finally on the other side of his ordeal with an out-of-control prosecution and now that he is cleared, he is taking it on the road to rip the Democrats to pieces ahead of the 2020 election.
Stone is set to appear in Las Vegas, Nevada, on Saturday, September 12, at the Ahern Hotel and Convention Center to take the case to the left with a fundraiser for the Roger Stone’s Legal Defense Fund hosted by City of Las Vegas Councilwoman and RNC Committeewoman, Michele Fiore.
Stone was recently quoted as saying that he is preparing to clean his claws on the Democrats.
“They cut corners and what’s outrageous is their arrogance, their moral superiority, when in fact, they have no morals at all,” Stone told CNN, adding, “I don’t think that any of these people involved in my prosecution are really believes in God.”
The Vegas public event will be held from 2-4pm, and will include an address by Fiore before Stone comes to the podium. Donation is required to purchase a ticket. ID will be checked at the door.
Tickets can be found at Roger Stone Ungagged! Las Vegas.
Stone is also hosting a SPECIAL VIP EVENT which includes a signed book and photo with Roger from 6-8 PM. GET TICKETS FOR THE VIP EVENT HERE.
All proceeds for this event will go to the Roger Stone Legal Defense Fund.
Stone was persecuted by left-over, deep state, Obama appointees in the Department of Justice, and convicted of several meaningless process crimes that he could never have “violated” without having first been targeted for a setup by the DOJ and the corrupt FBI.
Donald Trump saw the errors of the Obama regime holdovers and commuted Stone’s sentence in July.

WATCH: Anthony Scaramucci Squirms When Facing Tough Interview Questions
Despite claiming to be “very, very loyal to” President Trump during his ten days as White House Communications Director, Anthony Scaramucci has become a regular fixture in the fake news media to bash his former boss. He is used to being fawned over at places like CNN and MSNBC, where he is allowed to spread any lie he wants, so he didn’t know how to respond when he wasn’t, and was hammered with hard questions.
Scaramucci appeared on Matthew Moore’s show Nexus, which airs on the Turkish news network TRT World.
The disgraced former White House official went on the show hoping to spread anti-Trump propaganda, and to promote the campaign of former Vice President Joe Biden. But the host wasn’t going to let him spread his anti-Trump falsehoods without challenge.
At one point, Moore questions a Tweet from Scaramucci where he praises Joe Biden’s 47-years in office, stating that things only started to go bad when President Trump took office, and “ruined everything.”
Moore points out how insane this statement is, listing off a number of bad things that have occurred in the last 47-years, including Richard Nixon leaving office, the Vietnam War, the Rodney King riots in 1992, and the Iraq War.
— Matthew Moore (@trtNEXUS) September 1, 2020
After Scaramucci launched into a series of platitudes that mean nothing in response, simply agreeing that bad things have happened in the past, before Trump got in office, Moore hammered it home by asking, “So, why pretend all the problems in America started with President Trump?”
Moore immediately followed up by asking if he “hates the President?”
Scaramucci fired back responding, “I absolutely do not hate the President,” and quickly worked to shift the conversation away from this topic, which clearly made him uncomfortable.
The interviewer was happy to shift the conversation from Trump, and instead went after Joe Biden.
He questioned Scaramucci on how he can support Biden considering that he championed the 1994 Crime Bill, which has proven to be extremely unpopular in the black community.
The former White House Communications Director deflected, painting it as politics, and claimed that the Republicans were pushing for a more extreme version of the bill.
— Matthew Moore (@trtNEXUS) September 1, 2020
Since President Trump has taken office he has taken major steps towards reversing the more agregious parts of Biden’s Crime Bill with his First Step Act.
