The massive increase in the United States military presence in the Persian Gulf has been reported as preparation for imminent strikes against the United States and/or Israel by Iran or their proxies. As we reported last week, this move was almost certainly prompted by the defection of former Iranian Brigadier General Ali Nasiri who allegedly fled to an American embassy in a Persian Gulf state with a cache of military intelligence. If there were plans to attack the United States or our interests in the Middle East found in the intelligence, the rapid move to send the Abraham Lincoln Carrier Strike Group and nuclear-capable bombers to the region makes perfect sense.
But there’s another angle that hasn’t been explored by the media, an angle that jibes with certain events in recent days. Nasiri’s role as intelligence chief of the Islamic Revolutionary Guards Corps (IRGC) gave him access to the locations of everything associated with Iran’s nuclear program, including the hidden uranium enrichment centers that Iran has threatened to start using again within 60 days. Iran essentially verified this when they announced his firing days after his defection, citing “classified documents and information leaked to Israel and the U.S. regarding Iran’s nuclear program and secret missile bases” as reason for his sacking.
Could Nasiri’s information be leading to a U.S.-backed attack of some sort by Israel against Iran’s nuclear weapons facilities?
A peculiar meeting that took place days before the military ramp-up may be a clear indicator that this is the case.
John Bolton convened a meeting at CIA headquarters last week with the Trump administration’s top intelligence, diplomatic and military advisers to discuss Iran, according to six current U.S. officials.
The meeting was held at 7 a.m. on Monday, April 29, and included CIA Director Gina Haspel, Acting Defense Secretary Patrick Shanahan, Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Gen. Joe Dunford, Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, and Director of National Intelligence Dan Coats, five of the officials said.
When top military brass meets with top intelligence officials at CIA headquarters, there aren’t many conclusions that can be drawn. These sort of meetings happen at the White House unless there’s a very good reason to keep the circle smaller. It could be as simple as discussing imminent attacks from Iran. But it could be as significant as coordinating with Israel on a covert operation to set back Iran’s nuclear program by decades. If the CIA and Mossad are talking about this, meeting at CIA headquarters makes perfect sense.
If such an action was in the works, it would behoove both nations to make sure a sufficient force was present in the region when the operation went down. There’s no telling to what degree Iran would respond, but one thing is certain: they wouldn’t be happy and would seek immediate retribution.
Having enough firepower in the region to wipe out Iran’s substantial military forces would be necessary cover if we were about to destroy their nuclear ambitions in one fell swoop.
Iran is well aware of what Nasiri knows and is doing whatever they can to prepare for actions made against them. It must be assumed they are moving what they can and fortifying what they can’t move. This is why the rapid deployment makes sense in the overarching scenario.
The escalation in the Middle East may very well be a clear sign that Iran’s nuclear program is being targeted by Israel and the United States based on Ali Nasiri’s intel. If this plays out, war may be on the horizon.

Will you help revive the American Conservative Movement?
Will America-First News Outlets Make it to 2023?
Things are looking grim for conservative and populist news sites.
There’s something happening behind the scenes at several popular conservative news outlets. 2021 was bad, but 2022 is proving to be disastrous for news sites that aren’t “playing ball” with the corporate media narrative. It’s being said that advertisers are cracking down, forcing some of the biggest ad networks like Google and Yahoo to pull their inventory from conservative outlets. This has had two major effects. First, it has cooled most conservative outlets from discussing “taboo” topics like Pandemic Panic Theater, voter fraud, or The Great Reset. Second, it has isolated those ad networks that aren’t playing ball.
Certain topics are anathema for most ad networks. Speaking out against vaccines or vaccine mandates is a certain path to being demonetized. Highlighting voter fraud in the 2020 and future elections is another instant advertising death penalty. Throw in truthful stories about climate change hysteria, Critical Race Theory, and the border crisis and it’s easy to understand how difficult it is for America-First news outlets to spread the facts, share conservative opinions, and still pay the bills.
Without naming names, I have been told of several news outlets who have been forced to either consolidate with larger organizations or who have backed down on covering certain topics out of fear of being “canceled” by the ad networks. I get it. This is a business for many of us and it’s not very profitable. Those of us who do this for a living are often barely squeaking by, so loss of additional revenue can often mean being forced to make cuts. That means not being able to cover the topics properly. Its a Catch-22: Tell the truth and lose the money necessary to keep telling the truth, or avoid the truth and make enough money to survive. Those who have chosen survival simply aren’t able to spread the truth properly.
We will never avoid the truth. The Lord will provide if it is His will. Our job is simply to share the facts, spread the Gospel, and educate as many Americans as possible while exposing the forces of evil.
To those who have the means, we ask that you please donate. We have options available now, but there is no telling when those options will cancel us. We just launched a new GiveSendGo page. We also have our GivingFuel page. There have been many who have been canceled by PayPal, but for now it’s still an option. Your generosity is what keeps these sites running and allows us to get the truth to the masses. We’ve had great success in growing but we know we can do more with your assistance.
Thank you, and God Bless!
