Iranian National Arrested With Knives, Axe, $22K Near Mar-a-Lago in Florida

An Iranian official offered an $80 million bounty on Trump at Soleimani’s funeral.

An Iranian national was arrested in Palm Beach, Florida on Friday, when authorities received calls regarding suspicious behavior at a bridge not far away from President Trump’s “winter White House” of Mar-a-Lago.

In an alarming development, the man was found in possession of knives, an axe, a machete, and $22,000 in cash.

In spite of possessing a lump sum of money greater than many Americans’ life savings, reports indicate that Masoud Zoleh is homeless. Authorities identified him as a citizen of Iran from his passport. There are currently travel restrictions on Iranian nationals as a result of President Trump’s 2017 executive order travel ban, but reports indicate Zoleh is in the country legally.

How a homeless person is in possession of $22,000 is more unclear, as is his presence in Palm Beach, and his possession of the various weapons. He also has a car parked at the Palm Beach Airport.

The bridge at Bradley Park where Zoleh was detained is merely a 12-minute drive from Mar-a-Lago, and the area receives a buffed law enforcement presence when the President is nearby.

A speaker at the funeral of assassinated Iranian General Qassim Soleimani offered a whopping bounty of $80 million on the life of President Trump, in response to the killing of the Iranian Revolutionary Guards Corps general.

It’s doubtful the Iranian government intends to actually offer such a dramatic “bounty” on the life of a foreign leader, but it’s not impossible that some disturbed individuals will intend to collect it. “Comedian” George Lopez claimed he’d assassinate Trump for “half” of the bounty in an Instagram comment.

Federal authorities are apparently investigating Zoleh at this time.

Marine Leader Claims That Catering to Feminism, LGBT Couples is Among ‘Most Important Matters’

This is what the military is focused on these days.

Published

on

Commandant Gen. David Berger, who is effectively the leader of the Marines, outlined priorities that he believes are the “most important matters for immediate execution” for arguably the most important branch of the U.S. Military.

Among them are catering to transgender personnel and giving more rights to same-sex couples.

Berger wrote in a series of tweets that the Corps must “revise the current parental leave policy to include parental leave for adoptive parents, to include same-sex couples.”

He also wrote that the Marines must “determine feasibility of identifying and recruiting for return-to-active-duty selected female Marines currently in the SMCR and IRR, with a focus on previously gender-restricted units and job specialties.”

Berger did not explain how feminist hiring mandates or catering to gay couples would actually make the Military a stronger or more formidable fighting force, but those goals are clearly now secondary in the age of political correctness.

The Marine Corps Times notes that there is already no difference in how same-sex couples are treated versus regular couples pertaining to military policy.

Maj. Craig Thomas, who works as a spokesman for Manpower and Reserve Affairs, said that the parental leave policy was updated in 2018. He told the Marine Corps Times that it “does not specifically use the terms ‘same-sex couples’, rather it incorporates gender neutral terms to ensure no Marine who rates parental leave is excluded.”

It appears that one of Berger’s top priorities for the Marines is just a platitudinous virtue signal to same-sex couples that does not even accomplish anything other than to codify support for the LGBT agenda into official military policy.

Berger’s mandate for a more feminist military, with more women in the ranks and serving as officers in the Marine infantry, would entail for certain gender-specific barriers to be removed. The only problem with this proposed change in policy is that women are often wholly unqualified for these roles.

The Marine Corps Times noted that only two women have ever passed the notoriously grueling Infantry Officer Course, and there are zero women leading infantry platoons in the Marines. In addition, only 31 women have ever graduated from Marine infantry training as of summer 2019.

“The numbers are the numbers,” the previous Commandant of the Marine Corps Gen. Robert Neller said to NPR at the time.

“If you want to compete for any MOS [military occupational specialty], man or woman, you compete, and if you meet the standard you earn the MOS,” he added.

The rigorous standards will likely be lowered at some point in order to fulfill the diversity mandate set out by Berger. Political correctness has taken hold over the U.S. Armed Forces, and America will inevitably be weaker and more vulnerable as a result.
