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.
So, do or don’t believe the Intel community?
And you’re not really a trusted source to weigh in on Iran…
You sold the public the falsehood of a moderating Iranian regime – using your media “echo chamber” (your words)- & ignoring the true danger Iran presents in the region. https://t.co/KriHBpOWtf

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.
I’ve been watching for years as Iran moves weapons to proxies around the region, looking for opportunities to destabilize & wreak havoc, and then claim innocence. This is not new. And the Administration is right to strengthen our regional presence as a deterrence.

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.
Democrats Ready Lobbying Push to End Senate Filibuster In the Event of Biden Victory
They hope to dominate the opposition.
D.C. Democrats are preparing a lobbying effort to erase the traditional filibuster rule in the United States Senate, which requires 60 votes for the passage of most new legislation.
Eli Zupnick, a former top aide to Sen. Patty Murray of Washington, will lead Fix Our Senate, a group that will demand the Senate alter its rules to jam through a progressive policy agenda.
“Our goal is to lift the filibuster higher on progressives’ agendas … [and] make it clear to a future President Biden and Senate leadership that they expect and demand speedy Senate rules reform in 2021 and will not accept more gridlock, delays, and excuses,” Zupnick told NBC.
Senator Chris Coons of Connecticut had earlier warned that he would not ‘accept’ no for an answer when it comes to the implementation of a Biden administration agenda. Many Democrats are still upset that the then-Republican Senate minority blocked much of President Obama’s policy wish list during his administration.
“I will not stand idly by for four years and watch the Biden administration’s initiatives blocked at every turn,” said the neoliberal Democrat, who frequently fashions himself as a moderate. Coons is reportedly playing a role in preparing the push to end the Senate filibuster. Joe Biden himself has been reluctant to sign off on such a proposal, claiming he wants to wait and see how he would potentially work with Senate Republicans as President.
Democrats hope to force through a boatload of progressive policies, including federal gun control(with the possibility of confiscation), unlimited abortion, new taxes on middle-class Americans, globalist free trade deals, and massive increases in legal immigration.
The demand that major legislation be passed with merely 50 votes will quickly disappear in the event that Democrats fail to secure a Senate majority in November.
