Former CIA agent Larry Johnson appeared on The Campaign Show with Patrick Howley on Patriots Soapbox (6-8 PM ET Sundays on live.patriotssoapbox.com) to discuss the rush to possible war with Iran.

Johnson pointed to key evidence that suggests the United States neoconservatives are incorrect about Iran’s alleged sabotage of a pair of oil tankers, and Johnson said that the intelligence community is not happy about being pushed to go along with the story.

The Washington Post reports:

As U.S. allies pressed the Trump administration for more concrete evidence linking Iran to attacks on two oil tankers in the Gulf of Oman, Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said Sunday that additional proof will be forthcoming.

Japan and Germany have requested stronger evidence than the grainy video released by the Pentagon appearing to show an Iranian patrol boat removing from one of the ships an item said to be an unexploded mine.

Pompeo said in appearances on CBS’s “Face the Nation” and “Fox News Sunday” that he had spent much of the weekend talking with his counterparts in foreign capitals. It was an implicit acknowledgment that he has work to do convincing the world the U.S. accusations against Iran, which has denied responsibility for the suspicious explosions last week, are indeed, as Pompeo put it, “indisputable” and “unmistakable.”

Rapper Lil Wayne Breaks the Silence on George Floyd’s Death

Published

On May 29, 2020, Lil Wayne commented on the death of George Floyd.

The controversial death involved Minneapolis Police Department officer Derek Chauvin placing his knee on Floyd’s neck as he was handcuffed on the ground.

“I think when we see these situations, I think we also have to understand that we have to get very specific. … And what I mean by that is we have to stop viewing it with such a broad view, meaning we have to stop placing the blame on the whole force and the whole everybody or a certain race or everybody with a badge,” Wayne remarked during an IG Live chat with rapper Fat Joe.

Wayne added: “We have to actually get into who that person is. And if we want to place the blame on anybody, it should be ourselves for not doing more than what we think we’re doing.”

On top of that, the New Orleans rapper explained why he doesn’t always go public on these political issues.

“What else am I gonna do after that?” Wayne said to Fat Joe. “Some people put a tweet out and they think they did something. Some people wear a shirt and they think they did something. What you gonna do after that? Did you actually help the person? Did you actually help the family? Did you actually go out there and do something? So, if I ain’t about to do all that, then I ain’t about to do nothing. I’ll pray for ya.”

Wayne shared more of his thoughts regarding how people should process information during times of controversy.

“It’s actually learning about it,” Wayne commented. “What we need to do is we need to learn about it more. If we wanna scream about something, know what we’re screaming about. If we wanna protest about something, know what we’re protesting about. Because if we wanna get into it, there’s a bunch of facts that we think we know that we don’t know. … We scream about things that, sometimes, they really ain’t true.”

Wayne and Joe’s full discussion can be viewed below:

Riots have spread to other cities across the U.S., which included Minneapolis, where Floyd was killed. On May 29, Derek Chauvin received charges of murder and manslaughter in the killing of Floyd.
