Dan ‘McCain 2.0’ Crenshaw Pushes Deep State Spin That Iran Hit Oil Tankers in Gulf of Oman

The war drums are beating, and Neocon Dan is very happy about it.

Rep. Dan Crenshaw (R-TX), a vociferous critic of President Donald Trump’s foreign policy, is repeating the unverified deep state spin that there is proof showing that Iran attacked two Japanese oil tankers in the Gulf of Oman last week.

Crenshaw believes that the intelligence community, which has spent years attempting a coup to oust Trump from office, should be trusted blindly despite the fact that they lied about weapons of mass destruction to get the U.S. into a war in Iraq.

“The worst single mistake ever made in the history of our country: going into the Middle East, by President Bush,” Trump said of the Iraq war.

“Because we spent $7 trillion in the Middle East. Now if you wanna fix a window some place they say, ‘oh gee, let’s not do it.’ Seven trillion, and millions of lives — you know, ‘cause I like to count both sides. Millions of lives,” the president added.

Crenshaw, who has been dubbed McCain 2.0 because of his hawkish foreign policy views, is trying to influence Trump to start a disastrous war of his own in Iran by pushing dubious intelligence.

The owner of the Japanese oil tanker, Yutaka Katada said that the Kokuka Courageous was struck by “flying objects” according to sailors aboard the vessel and not a limpet mine, which was the claim of U.S. intelligence. He said that Secretary of State Mike Pompeo’s characterization of the attack was “false.”

Secretary of State Mike Pompeo is a public official who openly revels in his ability to lie to Americans, and brags about pulling the wool over the eyes of the public in service to the deep state.

“What’s the cadet motto at West Point? You will not lie, cheat, or steal, or tolerate those who do. I was the CIA director. We lied, we cheated, we stole. It’s — it was like — we had entire training courses. It reminds you of the glory of the American experiment,” Pompeo told a group of students at Texas A&M University on April 15.

McCain 2.0 wants the American public to rush into war with Iran because of Pompeo’s claims. Trump will have to ignore Crenshaw and other globalist neocons, unless he wants a foreign policy legacy similar to George W. Bush with a bloody, multi-trillion dollar fiasco in the Middle East on his record.

Mitch McConnell Preparing Exit Strategies, Potential Successors in Advance of Possible Retirement

Will Mitch retire?

Published

on

Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell has reportedly created a shortlist of potential successors, with the establishment Republican considering a possible retirement before his term ends. McConnell was reelected to another Senate term in 2020, and the Intercept broke the news of his retirement considerations on Thursday.

Kentucky Attorney General Daniel Cameron is reportedly McConnell’s first pick for his successor. Former UN Ambassador Kelly Craft and Kentucky Secretary of State Michael Adams are also possible replacements. McConnell, 79, has served as a Kentucky Senator since 1985.

Kentucky law currently would allow Governor Andy Beshear- a Democrat- to appoint McConnell’s successor if he retired. However, McConnell is pushing for the Republican state legislature to pass reforms allowing them to select replacements for Senators who have resigned. McConnell’s quiet boosting of legislative reforms to appoint interim Senators led to the reports of his potential retirement, although it’s unclear when he plans to leave the picture.

McConnell largely alienated the Republican Party with a forceful denunciation of former President Donald Trump during the second sham impeachment trial targeting the President, although he declined to vote to convict the President on the basis of legality. A Republican candidate in the mold of McConnell’s 20th century style would have a difficult time winning a Kentucky GOP primary, and McConnell’s appointed pick may start off in such an election with a considerable handicap. In addition, the legacy Senator remains popular in Kentucky, although at least one county party censured him for his betrayal of Trump in January.
