Following ISIS attack Iran issues threat To US and Israel

There are two nations who are the go-to punching bags of the rest of the world. The first is the United States who is blamed for pretty much every problem but panned for every accomplishment. The second is Israel, who is the alleged cause of all tension in the Middle East.

Iran continued the trend following a deadly shooting at a military parade that left 25 dead. An Arab separatist group with ties to the Islamic State claimed responsibility, and ISIS followed up with a video showing three gunmen on their way to the event.

Undeterred by evidence, Iran’s Ayatollah Khamenei, government officials, and ranking members of Iran’s military pointed the finger at the United States and Israel.

Iran warns US, Israel of ‘devastating’ response after deadly parade attack, report says

http://www.foxnews.com/world/2018/09/24/iran-warns-us-israel-devastating-response-after-deadly-parade-attack-report-says.htmlHossein Salami, the deputy head of the Revolutionary Guard, was at a funeral for one of the attack’s victims when he reportedly said, “You have seen our revenge before … You will see that our response will be crushing and devastating and you will regret what you have done.”

Suspects have reportedly been arrested and the country has declared Monday a national day of mourning. Iran believes the attack was carried out by militants trained by Israel and Gulf states, and supported by the U.S.

My Take

To be fair, Iran isn’t claiming that the United States nor Israel had a direct hand in the attacks, but believe the militants are a proxy of Israel supported by the United States. It’s a nice narrative and actually might have a shred of truth mixed in there.

By shred, I mean that it’s very possible the separatist group has had dealings with the United States, Israel, or both in some form or fashion. That’s not to say either notion condoned or was aware of the attacks beforehand. That is almost certainly not the case. But we do have our fingers ever so slightly touching many groups that oppose our enemies.

Just as we worked with Osama bin Laden in the 1980s and/or 1990s, it’s not out of the realm of possibility that we’re working with the separatists as well.

George Washington University students triggered by their mascot

George Washington University students triggered by their mascot

George Washington University is the home of the Colonials. You know, those people who came to America from Europe and eventually fought against the oppressive government of England in order to win independence for America. These heroes of the American Revolution are now being condemned by the students of George Washington University itself.

While the movement and attached petition haven’t reached a tipping point, the idea of changing the mascot to the “Hippo” is gaining momentum. Why? Well, we’ll let the students themselves tell you what they think.

This video by Campus Reform takes us into the wacky world of triggered college students who are so much in opposition of the people who made this country possible that they’d rather be named after the “river horse” of sub-Saharan Africa.

Trump to Acosta: ‘You have an agenda. You’re CNN. You’re fake news.’

Trump to Acosta You have an agenda Youre CNN Youre fake news

During President Trump’s press conference announcing his declaration of a national emergency, CNN’s Jim Acosta asked whether the President was concocting the national emergency in order to build his border wall because he couldn’t get it done through Congress. The President responded in standard fashion, attacking Acosta’s question itself as biased.

“You have an agenda. You’re CNN. You’re fake news,” the President said to the reporter.

Acosta has been at the center of controversy throughout President Trump’s term, tussling with members of the administration and the President himself at times. He lost access to the White House in November, 2018, after an altercation with a White House staffer.

This time, the President answered Acosta’s question about whether or not the emergency was manufactured by telling him to ask the Angel moms sitting in the front row if they thought the emergency was manufactured. Acosta did not.

President declares national emergency. Now the craziness begins.

President declares national emergency Now the craziness begins

As expected, President Trump signed the omnibus to keep the government from a second shutdown. Then, as expected, he declared a national emergency at the southern border to allow his administration to free up funds for the building of a wall at our southern border.

Now, the expectations shift to how Democrats will attack this move. During his announcement of the national emergency, the President noted he’s aware of how the process is going to go: lawsuits, appeals, more lawsuits, more appeals… and eventually it will be decided by the Supreme Court.

Reactions on social media were mixed.

My Take

From here, it goes insane. It should be noted the President made what many are considering a mistake when he said he “didn’t have to” declare an emergency but wanted the wall built faster. That seems like grounds to attack the declaration itself.
