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.

TX21 is a congressional race the entire nation will be watching

When two powerhouse representatives of their respective political ideologies clash, there’s always national attention. But as Wendy Davis announces her intention to take on Representative Chip Roy in the 21st Congressional District of Texas, there’s more at stake than just a seat on Capitol Hill. This race represents a battle for the soul of our nation.

If you’re wondering how a single Congressional seat could have so much importance, we have to look at the two candidates. Roy is a freshman who has already been making an impact with is push for fiscal conservatism. His demands on his fellow representatives are simple, all centering around the notion that Republicans must do as they promised. That means securing the border, cutting spending, and other important promises that, thus far, have not been fulfilled.

Davis was a rising star in the Democratic Party before losing a high-profile gubernatorial race. Now, she’s starting her comeback campaign by going after Roy’s congressional seat. Her pro-abortion and big government stances are stark contrasts to Roy’s conservatism, but they have one thing in common. Both are willing to go to the ideological edges even if it means bucking their own party. Roy made news in May when he single-handedly blocked a disaster relief bill, not over he merits of the big spending bill itself but because he does not believe Congress should sit back and let $19 billion get dished out without talking about it on the floor and having a proper vote.

There’s even a movie about Davis that’s potentially in the works, according to Fox News.

Davis became an overnight Democratic sensation in 2013 after her filibuster over an anti-abortion bill. She told Texas Monthly in March that she recently met with actress Sandra Bullock to discuss the Oscar winner portraying her in a movie about the filibuster, which Davis said could be released next year.

Texas was once considered to be a deep-red state, but in recent years has shifted to the point that many strategists on both sides of the aisle consider it a 2020 battleground. Beto O’Rourke confirmed this by coming within 3-points of taking down Senator Ted Cruz. For a hyper-leftist like O’Rourke to even be a consideration in the state is telling of the shift that’s happening there. This is why Davis’s entry into the race is so significant. If Republicans sit back and assume the seat is safe, they could lose it.

If a strong conservative like Chip Roy can hold onto the seat, it bodes well for the nation that Texas is staying true to its values. If Wendy Davis flips it, we can take it as a sign that progressives are making a bigger impact than expected.

Only 35% of Americans oppose ICE raids

Only 36 of Americans oppose ICE raids

Anyone who listens to legacy media outlets or spends enough time on progressive social media sites probably thinks the ICE raids on illegal immigrants with deportation orders are unpopular. “The Squad” rails against them. Progressive pundits scream until they’re nearly in tears. The various echo chambers get hashtags trending about how wrong it is to capture people who have broken the law and been properly adjudicated to be removed from the country.

But a majority of Americans support the raids.

A recent POLITICO/Morning Consult poll shows 51% of Americans support the raids, while only 35% oppose them. This number should be shocking considering all the anti-raid propaganda being pushed by the left, but it’s really not. Americans are generally believers in law and order. They’re aware of the generosity of the nation despite attempts to paint us as callous and to promote the narrative that the President is uncaring.

We are also aware that those targeted by ICE aren’t random people of foreign descent despite the progressive talking points used by nearly every legacy media outlet. They were all given an opportunity to demonstrate that they were fleeing oppression that falls into the context of asylum. But the vast majority – around 90% – never even show up to their hearing to make the case. This is because they’ve been told if they can simply claim asylum and then disappear into the interior, nothing will happen to them.

It’s important for these raids to move forward, increase in frequency, and extend indefinitely until the message is sent to countries with millions of people preparing to take the dangerous journey to our southern border. The message must be made clear: If they do not want to go through the legal process to enter and stay in the country, they will be sent back. With that message delivered, much fewer will attempt it.

The greatest asset conservatives have is the truth. We must not allow Democrats and their media allies to convince us their lies are true. Americans are aware of the problem at the southern border. We must keep the pressure up.

Caught in her lies, Erica Thomas chooses to double down against the truth

Caught in her lies Erica Thomas chooses to double down against the truth

The video above reveals several things about Georgia state representative Erica Thomas and the man who called her a “lazy bitch,” Eric Sparkes. It reveals Sparkes made a very poor choice in confronting a 9-months pregnant woman over her use of the express lane, but more importantly it reveals the lies compounding previous lies by a Democratic politician who wanted to attract national attention through her falsified use of the victim card.

According to Thomas, she was verbally assaulted by a racist “white man” who invoked the phrase “go back where you came from,” echoing a variation of the phrase President Trump used on Twitter a week ago in reference to “The Squad” of first term Democratic Congresswomen. The implications were obvious – whoever it was that said vile things to Thomas was a bigoted Caucasian and almost certainly a Trump supporter. The only thing that could spoil the string of lies and block her path to the progressive-adored status of victimhood was if the man who berated her came forward.

That man was Eric Sparkes, and come forward he did. As a result, Thomas’s narrative broke down quickly. First, he admitted to calling her a “lazy _____” but vehemently denied telling her to go back where she came from. He was so offended by her claims because she called him a racist who echoed President Trump’s message. That didn’t sit well with Sparkes, a man of Cuban descent and a Trump-hating Democrat.

Thomas’s narrative, echoed by thousands of progressives and several Democratic lawmakers, turned out to be completely false. Instead of the vision of a white supremacist Trump-supporter attacking an African-American woman over race, we have an unhinged Democrat calling a 9-month pregnant woman a “lazy _____” for having too many items in the express lane.

One might think this is the point when Thomas accepts an apology and lets the incident fade away. But… no. She’s doubling down, changing her story slightly and ignoring the likelihood that the man who insulted her voted for her.

The worst part is that even after acknowledging Sparkes didn’t say anything racist to her, she’s still claiming racism. Calling someone a “lazy _____” is not a racist attack. It’s callous and pathetic to use the phrase against a 9-month pregnant woman over the use of the express lane at a grocery store, but it’s not racist just because the victim was African-American.

Democrats and legacy media continue to push the hoax about the white supremacist Trump-supporter described by Erica Thomas. But the guy who called her names is a Trump-hating Democrat. The self-loathing of the left hits ludicrous speed sometimes.
