Iranians and Iraqis are Celebrating the Death of Quds Commander, Time to Bring Troops Home

Published

After the airstrike that killed Iranian military leader Qasem Soleimani, Iranians and Iraqis are celebrating.

The U.S.’s action came in response to an Iranian-supported militia attack on the U.S. embassy in Iraq.

According to Steve Watson of Summit News, Soleimani, the commander of the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps’ elite Quds Force, was a despised figure in Iran and Iraq among those persecuted by the Iranian government and its proxies.

After news of the strike, President Trump tweeted an American flag without any comment:

Following news of Soleimani’s death, Iraqis were dancing in the streets:

One user stated, “Iranians who have been forced to live under ruthless military rule, took to Twitter to thank Trump with the hashtag #TnxPOTUS4Soleimani.”

Another tweeted, “As an Iranian, I wanted to thank you with all my heart @realDonaldTrump, for putting an end to #Soleimani. You just made the world a better place to live in#TnxPOTUS4Soleimani#FreeIran2020

Other reports suggested that US Marines captured high profile terrorist actors:

Trump was definitely placed in an awkward spot, but he had to defend the U.S. embassy staff from a potential repeat of the 1979 Tehran hostage crisis.

Nevertheless, Trump re-assured the world that he is not pursuing war.

There is no need for him to bow down to pressure from interest groups who have no desire in abiding by Trump’s America First agenda.

Hopefully, Trump pulls more troops out of the Middle East and focuses more attention on America and its southern border.

U.S. Law Enforcement Bust 27 People Connected to Mexican Sinaloa Cartel

Published

on

Over two dozen people were arrested on drug charges in connection to a Mexican cartel smuggling cocaine into the U.S. Following a two-year investigation, 27 people were arrested through Operation Tripwire, an investigation effort U.S. officials have been working on featuring members of the Sinaloa Cartel.

The trafficking network went from Los Angeles, California to Tucson, Arizona and Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania where cocaine originating from Mexico was smuggled stateside. The United States Attorney for the Western District of Pennsylvania, Scott Brady declared “this is a large organization that was trafficking hundreds of kilograms of cocaine throughout the country and has direct ties to the Sinaloa cartel in Mexico.”

U.S. authorities recounted that the investigations started after an agent in Pittsburgh was able to identify an address that received large quantities of suspicious-looking packages coming from California. Since then, agents started to do investigation on other members of the network across the U.S.

Across the span of seven months, authorities were able to intercept U.S. calls made by some of the alleged traffickers with Sinaloa carte leaders in Mexico. On September 9, 2020, 27 were arrested in Arizona, California, and Pennsylvania.

According to American authorities, $1.3 million in cash and over 140 kilograms of cocaine were seized. The aforementioned people arrested are now facing a prison sentence of between 10 years and life in prison.

The border situation is no joke. Prior administrations have largely neglected the issue and have allowed for unprecedented levels of illegal immigration and drug trafficking to cross the U.S. border.

In a prior instance, BLP reported on how Mexico is a failed state that cannot maintain public order and is largely being pushed around by cartels. Due to its proximity to the U.S., Mexico’s problems will likely spillover stateside.

This is why border security is crucial. Thankfully, the U.S. has a president in Donald Trump that gets the memo. He’ll still need help from Congress, however,

That’s why it’s crucial that America First Republicans have strong showings at all branches of government in 2020.
