BREAKING NEWS From D.C.! BARRON Victim Of TERROR ATTACK!

Published

on

Americans don’t like to talk about terror. It seems that a lot of the most vocal members of this great nation would like to pretend that micro-aggressions are the worst things we will have to deal with in our lifetimes. They want you to think that the entire United States military is blowing this whole terrorist thing out of proportion.

It’s hard to say which are ascribing to this line of reasoning because they’re unable to handle the truth that there’s a hit out on all Americans and who is pushing this theory because they can gain from it politically. But either way, there’s a huge push for you to believe that Islam is really not harmful, and when you do hear about terrorism, it’s just not as bad as the President is making it out to be.

That load of propaganda is blown completely out of the water every time ISIS makes another attack or puts out a hit on someone, and we’re reminded of exactly what we’re up against. PJ Media reports that the most recent target is First Son, Barron Trump.

ISIS supporters circulated a gruesome Christmastime poster depicting the beheading of Barron Trump, showing a masked jihadist standing over an adult body in an orange jumpsuit with the 11-year-old’s head photoshopped into the terrorist’s hand.

PJM is not reproducing an image of the poster here because of the disturbing content. It’s similar to an image released last month depicting a beheaded Pope Francis.

‘Soon we will cut the head of america’s mule son,’ says the text on the Barron image.

A message posted last month on a pro-ISIS Telegram channel by an ISIS supporter called on fellow followers to ‘handle the son of the mule of America’ and included a photo of the president’s son and a snapshot of a Google map showing the location of Barron’s school.

ISIS supporters’ propaganda image

It speaks to just how brutal and cowardly terrorists are that despite the President having 5 children, 4 of whom are adults, they choose to attack his youngest and weakest child to simulate a beheading. It’s a tribute to their obsession with hurting the innocent that they go after the son of someone that they disagree with, ignoring the fact that he’s not even old enough to have formed an opinion on his dad’s political policies.

This revelation of their intentions comes just days after the President has been cracking down on all things ISIS. He first supported Jerusalem being given to our ally, Israel and then cut funding to UN nations who didn’t support it. Then, on Monday, he declared that he wouldn’t be sending any more aid to Pakistan, because of their known terror ties. In case you’re wondering whether that response is actually warranted, here’s an overview of some of the recent threats made by ISIS:

ISIS supporters have been on a holiday threat spree, taking the terror group’s PR into their own hands with a flurry of propaganda posters encouraging lone jihadists to attack, including a new one reiterating previous calls to ‘put terror in their hearts by running them over or stabbing them or burning structures and forests.’

A Modesto, Calif., tow-truck driver arrested and charged last week with hatching a holiday plot to attack San Francisco’s Pier 39 apparently paid attention to ISIS supporters’ propaganda posters. Everitt Aaron Jameson loved with a heart, said the criminal complaint, a recent poster from ISIS supporters showing Santa overlooking Times Square with a box of dynamite at his side.

Another poster from ISIS supporters circulated this week shows an armed jihadist overlooking a Christmas display as the Statue of Liberty looms overhead. ‘Make your motto ‘I will not survive if they cross worshipper survived,” jihadists were advised.

Last week, ISIS supporters encouraged lone jihadists to try methods such as making a terrorist attack look like a random murder or cooking up poisons to use on victims in a new suggestion list.

The list suggests ‘attacking an isolated victim and make it look like a Homiside [sp].’ This method was mentioned in the October 2016 issue of ISIS’ Rumiyah magazine focusing on knife attacks, when terrorists were advised to target someone walking home from a night out or working the night shift, ‘or someone walking alone in a public park or rural forested area, or someone by himself in an alley close to a nightclub or another place of debauchery, or even someone out for a walk in a quiet neighborhood.’

The ‘hints’ list, posted on Telegram, shows the Eiffel Tower and Big Ben in the background, with blood dripping from the top of the image. It was distributed in Arabic, French, and English, with the English translation not clean.

Lone jihadists were urged to have ‘total emmersion [sp] in the community,’ while ‘choosing easy targets to deal with’ in an operation that ‘must be secret & unseen.'”

ISIS supporters’ propaganda poster

President Trump is hitting terrorist where it hurts, and they’re lashing out against his child, plain and simple. Despite these brutal would-be attacks, the President is poised to address the nation, once again, on the issue of terrorism, and it’s reported that he has no plans to back down. He will be weighing in on the Iranian protests, and if history is any indication, he won’t be mincing words. Their plans of attack are ever growing and changing, and we have to change with it.

Terrorism only works if you back down when terrorized, and President Trump has proven that he won’t be doing that, not just because it makes a statement, but because it’s the only thing that works. If we want the killing to stop, we have to stop funding the killing, even if they threaten to bring it to our back door. It’s time we see Islam as the true enemy that it is and allow ourselves to be protected from it before these threats have time to come to fruition.

BREAKING NEWS!!! 120+ People Feared DEAD!! MAJOR Terror ATTACK!

Published

on

And once again we see the savages in the so-called “Religion of Peace” acting “Peacefully!”

At least 27 people were killed and 64 were gravely injured in a twin suicide bombing attack in central Baghdad, Iraq on Monday.

This makes it the deadliest attack so far this year in the Iraqi capital which is being rocked by attacks on a daily basis.

It’s been confirmed that two “peaceful” Islamists detonated their explosive vests in Tayaran Square. Tayaran Square is a commercial district and meeting place for day laborers seeking work to feed their families in an economy that still hasn’t been able to bounce back. Sadly on this day scores of them were killed and injured.

Although Iraq did officially declare victory last month over ISIS militants who seized control of nearly a third of the country in 2014 thanks to the lax Obama Administration policies. Sleeper cells and splinter groups continue to carry out attacks and bombings in Baghdad and various parts of the country.

The attack in Tayaran Square, also known as Aviation Square, was one of the deadliest in Baghdad since a massive truck bomb killed at least 324 people in the nearby commercial district of Karrada in July 2016. The Karrada bombing was the deadliest single attack in Iraq since the 2003 U.S.-led invasion that ousted Saddam Hussein from power and gave way to severe lawlessness in the region which 14 years later is still struggling to recover.

BREAKING: Trump Just CAPTURED Him In The Middle Of The Night – He’s FINALLY In Custody! 

KARMA IS A B!TCH!

Published

on

While the entire nation is focused on President Trump’s former campaign chairman, Paul Manafort, the Commander-in-Chief hasn’t broken stride and rightfully so. He’s been quietly and diligently working at one massive mission he’s secretly been on outside the public eye and now an exceptionally key person is in custody. It’s fair to say that from here, things are about to get really bad for certain people who have already been under a heaping dose of scrutiny. Now, their secrets are second from coming out in interrogation as long-awaited justice is finally within reach.

There have been some massive scandals in our country over the last couple of years, none of which have Trump at the center of them despite what liberals would love to say. Among the most devastating have left a number of people dead and had we not elected someone like Trump as president, they may have been forgotten.

Hillary Clinton has been tied to a lot of sudden and suspicious deaths stemming from what people knew and were insistent on exposing about her. She abides by the philosophy that “dead men don’t talk,” which have spared her a lot of criminal charges….until now. There are those out there with blood on their hands who have done Hillary’s dirty work and now one of the most important people who had a key role in her biggest scandal is now in custody.

CBS News reports:

U.S. officials say special operations forces have captured a key militant in the 2012 Benghazi attack on a U.S. consulate that left four Americans dead, CBS News national security correspondent David Martin confirms.

A U.S. official identified the suspect as Mustafa al-Imam, Martin reports.

The commandos captured the man in Libya just before midnight local time on Sunday and are transporting him back to the U.S., officials told The Associated Press. The suspect is in the custody of the Department of Justice and is expected to arrive within the next two days on a military plane, according to one of the officials.

The officials said the mission was approved by President Donald Trump and done in coordination with Libya’s internationally recognized government. The officials, who weren’t authorized to speak publicly to the matter and demanded anonymity, would not say where exactly he was captured.

The Sept. 2012 assault killed Ambassador Chris Stevens, U.S. State Department computer expert Sean Smith and CIA contractors Glen Doherty and Tyrone Woods.

Had it not been for Trump in office, the victims of Benghazi would have had no chance justice since Hillary would have swept the attack under the rug to protect herself and cover her actions that led to this punishing attack.

“Stevens and Smith died in the burning diplomatic outpost despite efforts to rescue them. Woods and Doherty died nearly eight hours later in a mortar attack on a nearby CIA complex,” CBS added. This is another step toward the damning answers that Hillary has been trying to hide from as another of the terroristic killers was caught on the president’s watch who has made this investigation a priority.

“Earlier this month, another man accused in the attack, Abu Khattala, went on trial in federal court in Washington. Khattala has pleaded not guilty to the 18 charges against him, including the murder of an internationally protected person, providing material support to terrorists and destroying U.S. property while causing death, CBS News explained. “The attack was the fodder of multiple congressional investigations to determine what went wrong and whether the Obama administration misled the public on the details of the bloody assault.”

Ahmed Abu Khattala

“Initial accounts provided by administration officials, notably former U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations Susan Rice, said the attack had grown out of a protest against an anti-Muslim internet film. Later, the administration said it was a planned terrorist attack.”

“A two-year investigation by a House Benghazi committee focused heavily on Clinton’s role and whether security at the compounds and the response to the attack was sufficient. It was the Benghazi probe that revealed Clinton used a private email server for government work, prompting an FBI investigation that proved to be an albatross in her presidential campaign.”

This comes at the start of a new week for Hillary who had a particularly rough weekend when her crimes stacking up against her, particularly after she was suspected in the death of another victim in the ever-increasing body count covered in her fingerprints

Information hounds have their paws deep in the dirt as they dig up ghosts of Hillary Clinton’s past and search for any and all evidence linking her to the death of a prominent figure in American history. Truth seekers look for evidence that could lead to her to indictment and incarceration, but those who seek are coming up with mixed results. The hottest trending controversial conspiracy slithers back into relevancy in the wake of JFK’s classified files being released, even though numerous items were redacted. This theory plots Hillary Clinton against JFK Jr. and suggests that she’s directly, or indirectly, responsible for the plane crash that left JFK Jr. and two others dead, thus paving the way for Clinton to win an easy seat in the Senate and further her career.

Look back to 1999 when numerous New York residents fancied JFK Jr. the front-runner in the Senate election taking place in the year 2000. A young charismatic man like his father, JFK Jr. would’ve had an easy victory over Hillary Clinton if he had run for Senate in 2000, but any possibility of him entering into the election was halted mid-air with the crash of the aircraft he was in. A midnight flight and an unfortunate demise of a budding personality who could’ve carried on the legacy of his father had it not been for that harrowing flight that ended it all. Many sources say JFK Jr. was not 100% set on running for Senate, but if he did, it would’ve been an overwhelming victory.

Sources like Your News Wire point to Hillary Clinton as the reason JFK Jr’s plane exploded and crashed. The website suggests that Hillary had no intention of returning to Arkansas and her only goal was to win a seat in the New York Senate, no matter what it took. The source allows readers to believe, without truly saying so, that Hillary Clinton was responsible for the murder of JFK Jr. Based on the details of the event, in which it’s believed that JFK Jr. was flying the plane in the night time and he had called the radio tower for something, then randomly exploded, one has to wonder what caused the explosion. The website then discusses the possible events that suggest the Clinton’s covered this up very quickly by preparing a Navy funeral service, even though JFK Jr. did not serve in the Navy. This all happened after a search located JFK Jr. and his passenger’s bodies in the water.

Whether that death is proven to be connected to the Clintons or not, there’s no denying the part that Hillary played in Benghazi. Now, one of the terrorists doing the killing just might provide clues, but at least will be held accountable in a way that Barack Obama or Hillary Clinton would have never done.

BREAKING!!! HE Was JUST CAUGHT WITH ENEMY…. ENJOY GITMO!!!

Published

on

It’s really starting to look like former President Barack Hussein Obama and his partner in crime Secretary of State Crooked Hillary Clinton had a real big soft spot for Iran and its funding of terrorism around the world.

According to the Kuwaiti newspaper Al-Jarida, three years ago the Obama Administration actually went as far as to warn the Iranian government that Israel was about to assassinate General Qassem Soleimani. Soleimani is the commander of the Quds Force, which is a branch of the Iranian Revolutionary Guards that manages foreign military operations. Otherwise known as terrorism to the peace-loving world.

Although the allegations of this treasonous action by the Barack Obama himself is still uncorroborated it is said to have caused the collapse of the whole Israeli operation.

The Washinton Examiner Reports:

Why is Iranian master terrorist Qassem Soleimani distributing photos of himself in Iraq?

DUBAI, United Arab Emirates — CIA Director Mike Pompeo confirmed that Iranian Qods Force commander Qassem Soleimani was in Kirkuk against the backdrop of Iraqi moves to restore Baghdad’s authority over the city and surrounding disputed areas. Many analysts in Washington take that as a sign that Iraq and largely Shiite militias — the so-called Hashd al-Shaabi — were operating under the orders and guidance of Iran.

This may be overstated for two reasons. First, Soleimani acts not only as an operative but also as Iran’s most trusted diplomat and, second, Soleimani was coordinating with the Kurds and so the narrative of pro-American Kurds versus pro-Iranian Iraqis simply doesn’t make sense.

True, Iran’s influence in Iraq is serious and presents a challenge both to U.S. and Iraqi interests, but exaggerating Soleimani’s role based on photos he tweets out may actually play into Soleimani’s strategy.

At first glance, it seems strange that Soleimani, given his position as Iran’s chief operative in the covert world of terrorism and special operations, would allow his photo to be taken. That he does so, however, is the rule rather than the exception. In 2015, Iran released a Soleimani documentary, proudly announced on his now-defunct website. Soleimani’s penchant for photos in the field has become so pronounced that many analysts — especially in Gulf Cooperation Council countries — suspect he might be laying the groundwork for a presidential run.

But Soleimani’s photos also have another purpose: to suggest that Iran’s role is more pervasive and effective than it actually may be. It’s an influence operation, plain and simple, and one in which Iran often engages.

In Beirut, Baghdad, and Basra, I’ve found donation boxes belonging to the Imam Khomeini Relief Committee, a charity funded by Iran’s supreme leader and designated by the U.S. Treasury Department for activities that are decidedly uncharitable. When I have called out Lebanese and Iraqi officials on how they can deny Iranian influence when the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps-linked charity manages to drill boxes into public streets in the center of major cities, the response is always the same: The Iranians do so without permits or permission, but countering the move is simply not a fight either Lebanon or Iraq are willing or able to pick.

That, of course, is an acknowledgement of Iranian power. But what is Iran’s point? After all, in all my years traversing the Middle East, I’ve never seen anyone put money in those collection boxes, nor has anyone I’ve met. Frankly, after billions of dollars in sanctions relief and ransom payments provided to the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps in the last years of the Obama presidency, they do not lack money. The answer is simply that Iranian officials want to project an image of all-pervasive presence and influence.

It’s not just Soleimani or the Imam Khomeini Relief Committee. Consider this 2015 photo, supposedly from the Ashura Brigade Situation Room from which the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps supposedly controlled unmanned aerial vehicles, or UAVs, in support of efforts to defeat the Islamic State. Of course, when the Iraqi military and Hashd al-Shaabi subsequently liberated Fallujah and Ramadi, there was no mention of Iranian UAVs. They played no effective role. But ask many Iraqis, and it was the Iranians who best supported Iraqi forces, both on the ground and by air.

Indeed, the majority of Iraqis believe the U.S. supported ISIS and it was Iran who defended Iraq from them. The reason for such a conspiracy is multifold. In the wake of the ISIS’s rise, Iran provided Iraq with weapons and aircraft within a couple days but, in order to display its displeasure with then-Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki, the Obama administration delayed meaningful U.S. support for weeks if not months.

In effect, it was like a friend’s house caught fire. One neighbor turned on his hose and helped dump buckets of water on the blaze, while the other stayed at home and watched “Keeping Up With the Kardashians.” Of course, the Obama administration subsequently did help, but air support does not provide the same photo-ops that ground operations do. And even after U.S. Special Forces eventually returned to help on the ground, Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei and various Iranian outlets countered this simply by repeating the mantra that the U.S. sponsored ISIS.

That may have been nonsense — after all, the Iranian-backed Bashar Assad regime in Syria did not once bomb the ISIS capital at Raqqa in its years of monopolizing Syrian airspace — but lies absent an effective response become conventional wisdom, especially when most Iraqis and Iranians (rightly) believe NATO member Turkey was culpable in ISIS’s rise.

So, back to the photos of Soleimani in Kirkuk: They are real and that’s a problem. But, buying into the image of Soleimani’s all-pervasive presence and influence in Iraq may actually be fulfilling the goals of Soleimani himself. Just because Soleimani takes a photo does not mean he is in direct control; it only means that he wants people to believe he is in direct control.

That doesn’t mean the U.S. shouldn’t try to counter Soleimani. Snatching him when, in contravention to U.N. sanctions, he is outside Iran would be a good place to start even considering the blowback which would surely follow. But getting dragged into an intra-Kurdish squabble or allowing Kurds to cynically and hypocritically play the Iran card against Iraq is simply counterproductive.

“I would simply ask him what he wants from us,” said a senior US military official. In addition to the soldiers killed this year, the US ambassador in Baghdad, James Jeffrey, said last summer that Iranian proxies accounted for roughly a quarter of US combat casualties in Iraq – around 1,100 deaths and many thousands more injuries.

Despite this, the US has landed few public blows on Suleimani’s close circle.

In March 2007, the British SAS captured a senior Hezbollah official, Ali Moussa Daqduq, who had allegedly planned an operation that killed seven soldiers in Karbala. The same year, US troops also captured two men in the Kurdish north who they believed were al-Quds leaders. Apart from that, the trophy cabinet remains bare – at least publicly. More troubling than the apparent dearth of tactical victories is how the rest of the year will play out.

The US – and some key neighbouring Sunni states – believe Iran’s strategy in Iraq as the conflict winds down is to keep the country in a permanent but manageable state of chaos.

“They keep it on simmer and turn it up and down when they want to,” said one Lebanese official in Beirut.

The senior US military spokesman in Iraq, Major General Jeffrey Buchanan agreed. “Their overall strategy has been to keep [Iraq] isolated from the rest of its neighbours and from the US, because that makes it likely that it will depend on Iran. They want Iraq to play a subordinate, weak role.”

Only Iraq’s lawmakers can stop the master-client relationship from becoming entrenched here. It’s a task that Kurdish legislator in the national parliament, Mahmoud Othman, fears may prove to be beyond his colleagues.

“Qassem Suleimani is the key man to every decision taken in Iraq,” he said.

“It is a shame to have such a man playing such a role in this country. There should be a relationship between equals like normal relations with normal states.”

If these charges are indeed true then Barry Soetoro could even be tried in a court of law. He betrayed an unwavering ally in order to placate his own people in Iran. This is why you never elect a man who has an Islamic name to the office of President of The United States of America. Let this serve as a lesson to those who voted for him out of white guilt.

When Obama decided it was a good idea to side with the terrorists instead of our allies it fast became obvious who he really was, an enemy to the western world. He is not a real American and his loyalties never lied with the real Americans. He was always on the wrong side of the argument, and on the wrong side of history. His presidency will always be a sore spot in American History, and rightly so. We as a nation have had to suffer bad presidencies before, but never had we had to suffer a president who clearly sided with the enemies over our own peace-loving allies.

Please share if you agree Barack Obama needs to go to prison…
