Trump made the admission during a Fox News interview that the Saudis had already deposited a billion dollars in US accounts to pay for keeping the large numbers of US troops in their country (probably to protect the regime from Iran in case of war). Since when is it constitutional for the Commander in Chief to sell US military services abroad and put our troops at risk for a dictatorial regime?

Showing off its new-gen ballistic missiles
The missile attack on the US incorporated new, advanced missiles—the Qaim 1 and Fahad-110—possessing advanced guidance and control capable of pinpoint precision. Iran had used these weapons previously, striking targets inside Syria affiliated with the Islamic State. But this was the first time these weapons had been used against the US. From the US perspective, the results were sobering. … Continue reading “Iran didn’t want to kill US troops with its strike, it proved its missile tech & resolve. Trump had to back down.”

Trump’s Unholy War
Published: Thursday, January 9, 2020
Just as many of us have been warning, Donald Trump is joining his fellow PNAC puppets G.W. Bush and Barack Obama in taking the United States into yet another quagmire of a Middle Eastern war for the benefit of the military industrial complex—and Israel, of course.
Here is General Wesley Clark exposing the U.S. (PNAC) plan to topple the governments in seven Middle Eastern and North African countries back in 2007. Continue reading “Chuck Baldwin: Trump’s Unholy War”
WONDERFUL to see Dennis Kucinich and Tulsi Gabbard standing together to stop these wars! And Stephen Kinzer adds important real-history content too.
33:15 “It’s sad that we are in a place where standing for peace requires courage.” – Tulsi Gabbard
The CIA and Mossad created and control ISIS to overthrow governments covertly, when they’re not allowed to use the US military openly.
Lt. General Soleimani was an instrumental figure in the fight against Daesh in Syria and Iraq and saved countless Christian and Muslim lives by thwarting missions that put their civilian lives in danger. However, as is the case in many of Washington’s manufactured pretexts used to justify unwarranted wars and invasions, heroes are vilified and terrorists (along with their sponsors) are revered.
It’s particularly interesting to see ISIS, Israel, and the United States on the same side when it comes to Soleimani’s death. A weekly ISIS newspaper called al-Naba praised the assassination and called it “divine intervention” “an act of God” and stated that Soleimani’s death will assist their efforts to regroup in Iraq. It’s blatantly obvious that ISIS saw him as a deterrent while Washington painted him to be the “number one terrorist”. This further illustrates how Washington’s alleged “war on terror” is nothing more than an excuse to invade countries….
Iran has 1 million Christians.
27:00 “People have no idea how much Soleimani helped the United States.”
No way is ‘Pompous’ Pompeo a Christian. He may be born-again, but we must abide in Christ, having clear consciences. And he laughs about lying, and just lied again for the reason they murdered Soleimani.
“He who sits on the throne said … ‘He WHO OVERCOMES, I will give him these things. I will be his God, and he will be my son. But for the cowardly, unbelieving, sinners, abominable, murderers, sexually immoral, sorcerers, idolaters, and ALL LIARS, their part is in the LAKE THAT BURNS WITH FIRE and sulfur, which is the second death.’” – Rev. 21:5-8
Also, look at what the NT says about murderers, and then Pompeo lies about it.
Note my comment below (in blue), showing how Hagee deceived Trump into thinking he’s helping rebuild the temple for good; though, it will be an abomination where animal sacrifices will burn, and from where the antichrist will rule during the tribulation, giving the order to chop off Christians’ heads.
Hagee told Trump instead that Jesus will rule from the temple, but this can only happen after the end of the tribulation — if there really will be a millennium.
This is reverse-Christianity.

The Evangelicals Who Pray for War With Iran
Mike Pence and Mike Pompeo, who urged Trump to kill Qassem Soleimani, are ardent proponents of Christian Zionism.

Qassem Soleimani and nine others were killed in a U.S. drone strike in Iraq, the Christian Zionist advocacy group Christians United for Israel emailed its millions of supporters to praise President Trump’s move. … Continue reading “The Evangelicals Who Pray for War With Iran – Pence and Pompeo, who urged Trump to kill Soleimani, ardent proponents of ‘Christian’ Zionism”

Joel Skousen also stated some of this in Friday’s World Affairs Brief.
At this point, it appears Trump has no moral compass, or he’s blackmailed. Trump has gone rogue, and is ramping up the hatred towards America.
Trump has again fully admitted he’s using American troops to take Syria’s oil, which is illegal and immoral.
“Trump disgraces our military by using our men & women in uniform as mercenaries serving the interests of multinational corps (e.g. Exxon) & foreign countries (e.g. Saudis). We must stand side by side—no matter our political party—to end this travesty #NoWarWithIran #StandWithTulsi

SETTING A TRAP FOR TRUMP ON WAR WITH IRAN
Trump’s approval of the assassination attack on Iran’s top general, Qassem Soleimani, was based on lies and half-truths fed to him by his advisors. They claimed Soleimani was coming to Baghdad to direct more terror against diplomats, when, in fact, Soleimani was there on a diplomatic mission initiated by the US. The US worked with Saudi Arabia to draft a peace plan and then asked Iraq to invite Iran to come to Baghdad for negotiations. Iran sent Soleimani. That is why he came on a commercial airliner, carrying a diplomatic passport and meeting with the PM.
He was tracked and killed along with a top Iraqi general, Abu Mahdi al-Muhandis, at the airport. This assassination set the Iraqi and Iranian world on fire, as it was intended to do, destroying what little goodwill the US had left in the region, and fomenting rioters who chant “death to America.” Advisors also fed Trump the 52 targets in Iran they were planning on hitting if Iran retaliated, which included “cultural sites” on the list. The advisors had to know that hitting cultural sites was a war crime, but did so on purpose in order to embarrass Trump. Trump stumbled deeper into the trap after he was criticized by the media, by tweeting rude justifications for striking cultural sites, but in the end had to recant and say he would obey international law. But in a sense, Deep State advisors went too far in embarrassing Trump, for when Iran limited its revenge strike—to make sure no Americans were killed, Trump saw a way out and took it, thus evading the trap —for now. But the globalists aren’t through manipulating Trump into war. … Continue reading “Skousen: Setting a Trap for Trump on War with Iran — Soleimani was on a diplomatic mission initiated by the US • ‘Pompous’ Pompeo’s lies • Iran’s missiles’ precision worrisome for US planners”
Everyone knows U.S. foreign policy in the Middle East has more to do with destabilization than diplomacy.
Trump admits he “left troops in Syria to take the oil,” and then says “we have the oil.” If this isn’t reverse-Christianity, what is?
We were unsuccessful in regime changing Syria, the last country that needed to be destabilized before taking out Iran for the Greater Israel Project, so then Trump figures we’ll just take the oil, which the Bible calls stealing.
Someone recently said Trump has broken all of the 10 commandments now, with his recent assassinations in Iraq (though he’s murdered others before in his military campaigns). Here he’s breaking “Thou shalt not steal,” and tells us about it on the war channel, Fox News.
THE ANGER OF IRAQIS AGAINST THE US
The US Deep State may not need to concoct another false flag attack if anti-US militias in Iraq decide to take revenge for Abu Mahdi al-Muhandis, who was killed along with Soleimani. Qais al-Khazali, a commander of the Iran-backed Popular Mobilization Forces (PMF) in Iraq, vowed to exact revenge for the killing of their leader saying,
“The first Iranian response to the assassination of the martyr leader Soleimani took place,” he tweeted. “Now is the time for the initial Iraqi response to the assassination of the martyr leader Muhandis.”
Muhandis was particularly disliked by the Deep State because he documented more than anyone else in Iraq the fact that the US refused to help them eliminate ISIS once it overran the US-trained Iraqi army in Mosul. In fact the Iraqi army ran away like rabbits and left all their heavy armor and guns behind for ISIS to capture. He points out that it was Iran that provided them the weapons and ammunition to defeat ISIS—thus Soleimani was not supporting terror, but fighting against it. Continue reading “Skousen: The Anger of Iraqis Against the US – Trump also assassinated Muhandis, Iraqi leader who fought ISIS, as did Soleimani”
Everyone has heard by now that Soleimani was responsible for 600 American deaths . . . but where does this oddly specific number come from?
Lies About Iran Killing US Troops in Iraq Are a Ploy to Justify War
Gareth Porter, Truthout

One of the many myths that have been used to justify the push for war with Iran led by National Security Adviser John Bolton and Secretary of State Mike Pompeo is that Tehran is responsible for the killing of more than 600 U.S. troops during the Iraq War.

WITH SULEIMANI ASSASSINATION, TRUMP IS DOING THE BIDDING OF WASHINGTON’S MOST VILE CABAL
Assassination has been a central component of U.S. policy for many decades, though it has been whitewashed and normalized throughout history, most recently with Obama’s favored term, “targeted killings.” The U.S. Congress has intentionally never legislated the issue of assassination. Lawmakers have avoided even defining the word “assassination.” While every president since Gerald Ford has upheld an executive order banning assassinations by U.S. personnel, they have each carried out assassinations with little to no congressional outcry.
In 1976, following Church Committee recommendations regarding allegations of assassination plots carried out by U.S. intelligence agencies, Ford signed an executive order banning “political assassination.” Jimmy Carter subsequently issued a new order strengthening the prohibition by dropping the word “political” and extending it to include persons “employed by or acting on behalf of the United States.” In 1981, Ronald Reagan signed Executive Order 12333, which remains in effect today. The language seems clear enough: “No person employed by or acting on behalf of the United States Government shall engage in, or conspire to engage in, assassination.”

U.S. intelligence documents released to a government watchdog confirms the suspicions that the United States and some of its so-called coalition partners had actually facilitated the rise of the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS) as an effective adversary against the government of the Syrian dictator President Bashar al-Assad. In addition, ISIS members were initially trained by members and contractors of the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) at facilities in Jordan in 2012. The original goal was to weaken the Syrian government which had engaged in war crimes against their own people, according to a number of reports on Sunday. The non-profit, non-partisan Judicial Watch — a group known for its investigation of government corruption and abuse — had obtained more than 100 pages of classified documents from both the US Department of Defense and the State Department through a federal lawsuit.

Avangard changes everything: What Russia’s hypersonic warhead deployment means for the global arms race
Video released by the Russian defense ministry on Friday shows the hypersonic glider warheads being loaded onto silo-based missiles. For now, the Avangards will be mounted on the UR-100N (or SS-19 Stiletto, as NATO calls them) ballistic missiles, until the RS-28 Sarmat is ready to enter service.
Hypersonic weapons fly far faster than the speed of sound. Avangard is capable of reaching Mach 27 without losing control or disintegrating under heat and pressure. This means that the weapon can outmaneuver any defenses on its approach phase, rendering it “absolutely invulnerable to any air or missile defense system,” in the words of Russian President Vladimir Putin.

“We were devoid of a fundamental understanding of Afghanistan. We didn’t know what we were doing.” So said Gen. Douglas Lute, who oversaw the US war on Afghanistan under Presidents Bush and Obama. Eighteen years into the longest war in US history, we are finally finding out, thanks to thousands of pages of classified interviews on the war published by the Washington Post last week, that General Lute’s cluelessness was shared by virtually everyone involved in the war.
What we learned in what is rightly being called the “Pentagon Papers” of our time, is that hundreds of US Administration officials – including three US Presidents – knowingly lied to the American people about the Afghanistan war for years. This wasn’t just a matter of omitting some unflattering facts. This was about bald-faced lying about a war they knew was a disaster from almost day one. Continue reading “Ron Paul: The Afghanistan War is the Crime of the Century — $Two trillion; 3,000 Americans and 150,000 Afghans killed; Gov’t lied throughout!”
