Former Kansas congressman Mike Pompeo, now the CIA director, is expected to move to take over the State Department in the event of Tillerson’s ouster. Pompeo is already coming under fire from the mainstream press for reportedly being too close to the president. Neoconservative senator Tom Cotton is being hyped in the press as a likely replacement for Pompeo.

Trump’s strong move for a war team comes amid unprecedented pressure from a coalition of America’s enemies.

Top-level national security sources are revealing new details about the Chinese and Iranian plan to move into North American waters.

For years, the two countries planned to build government installations in the Caribbean and Venezuela. Some of these bases of operation are already built and maintained with full-time employees.

China, which holds a mutual-defense treaty with North Korea, and Iran, which maintains positions in South America, are coming under new scrutiny at the highest levels of the U.S. government. For years, U.S. leaders proved ignorant or apathetic to these advances in the Western Hemisphere. Socialist president Nicolas Maduro holds power in Venezuela, which is ravaged by financial crisis.

China and Iran’s moves are now finally coming to light:

China Launched A Satellite For Venezuela

The Chinese alliance with Venezuela became visible last month, when the Chinese government launched a surveillance satellite from the Gobi desert for use by Venezuela.

Nasaspaceflight.com reported:
China launched the second remote sensing satellite for Venezuela using a Long March-2D (Chang Zheng-2D) launch vehicle on Monday. This was the first use of the CZ-2 rocket after a mishap occurred in December 2016 with the first Gaojing mission. The failure caused major disruption to the Chinese launch schedule.
the VRSS-2 (Venezuela Remote Sensing Satellite-2) is the second remote sensing satellite built by China to Venezuela after the VRSS-1 Francis Miranda (2012-055A) launched on September 29, 2012, using a Long March-2 launch vehicle from Jiuquan. The contract for the launch of VRSS-2 was signed in October 2014″

China, which chairs the U.N. Security Council, also supported Iran’s launch of a rocket carrying a satellite into space.

China has been moving into the Carribean for the past several years.

China built a port on a remote island of The Bahamas 180 miles off the U.S. coast, prompting suspicion from locals who are concerned about China’s potential military ambitions in the area. The port is staffed by Chinese workers but is not operational for trade.

During the construction of the port, a top official with The Bahamas’ then-ruling progressive party vowed that “China will actively provide military assistance to the Bahamas and defense dialogue.”

Bahamian sources say that residents are afraid to talk about the new Chinese installation in Coopers Town, which has a population of 676 on the island of Abaco.

Iranian Warships Move Into The Gulf Of Mexico

Iranian warships are moving into the Gulf of Mexico to interact with Venezuela’s presence in the region.

“Our fleet of warships will be sent to the Atlantic Ocean in the near future and will visit one of the friendly states in South America and the Gulf of Mexico,” said Iranian Navy Commander Rear Admiral Hossein Khanzadi.

Iran and Venezuela have a longstanding relationship.

In 2011, former CIA agent Chet Nagle reported for the Daily Caller on an agreement between Iran and Venezuela to build a joint military base. Nagle reported:

“On November 25th, the respected German journal Die Welt published a report that Iran and Venezuela agreed on October 19th to build a joint military base. That complex will include medium-range ballistic missiles (MRBMs) like the Shahab-3 (range 1,200 miles) and Scud-B and Scud-C missiles (range 185-340 miles). Those weapons will enable Chavez to make missile strikes on much of South America, the Caribbean Basin and, with the Shahab-3, even American cities…

Iran has already built what it calls a “tractor factory” in Venezuela, the most heavily guarded and secret tractor factory in the world. The fenced compound is so secret that even Venezuelans are not allowed to enter it; only Iranians are allowed inside. (There are reports that Ahmadinejad visited the facility some months ago.) The factory is in a remote area, not far from a uranium deposit former Venezuelan officials estimate holds 50,000 tons of ore.”

Die Welt reported:

“Iran is building intermediate- range missile launch pads on the Paraguaná Peninsula, and engineers from a construction firm – Khatam al-Anbia – owned by the Revolutionary Guards visited Paraguaná in February. Amir al-Hadschisadeh, the head of the Guard’s Air Force, participated in the visit, according to the report. Die Welt cited information from “Western security insiders.””

Hugo Chavez was photographed with Iranian paramilitary leader Brigadier General Mohammad Reza Nadqi, purportedly in 2009, and frequently convened meetings with then-Iranian leader Mahmoud Ahmadinejad.:

Center for a Secure Free Society

The Hill reported last August after Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif’s visit to six Latin American nations:

“Earlier this month, the Brazilian journalist Leonardo Coutinho confirmed the strategic importance of Latin America to Iran’s military program in the magazine La Veja. Coutinho exposed an official document dated Aug. 3, 2009, showing that then-Venezuelan President Hugo Chávez had approved a $1.3-million investment for a joint venture between Venezuela’s state defense contractor, CAVIM, and Iran’s Parchin Chemical Industries. The project involved the establishment and improvement of facilities for producing nitrocellulose and nitroglycerine, both key components of solid rocket fuel. Cooperation between Iran and Venezuela’s military sectors has been well-known for years, but it was the first time an official document has emerged showing Chávez’s approval of joint military industrial projects. The sum is trivial, but the timing and the partnerships are of critical importance.”

Former Iranian leader Mahmoud Ahmadinejad was feted at deceased Venezuelan leader Hugo Chavez’s funeral.

Two Men Arrested for Planning Terrorist Attack on Trump Tower in Support of ISIS

They’re from South Carolina and Texas.

Published

on

The FBI has arrested two men and charged them with planning terrorist attacks on locations such as New York’s Trump Tower in support of the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria.

Kristopher Sean Matthews of South Carolina and Jaylyn Christopher Molina of Texas have been charged with conspiring to provide material support or resources to a designated foreign terrorist organization.

Matthews adopted the pseudonym Ali Jibreel, and Molina the name Abdur Rahim.

The pair allegedly plotted to attack government facilities and New York’s Trump Tower, discussing their plans in jihadist chatrooms. They were busted by federal informants within these honeypots.

We need to stick together, we need to defeat them, we need to take a lot of casualties,” said Molina of the pair’s plotting. Molina spoke of his allegiance to ISIS in the server. “You are my enemy (America) and never will I wear your flag … but I will raise the black flag of Allah.

They also spoke of the proposition of traveling to Syria in order to fight for ISIS, an idea that would’ve almost certainly resulted in their quick capture or death. American citizens caught fighting for ISIS on foreign battlefields have proven to be a legal nightmare for American military and civil law to manage.

Both were arrested on Monday. They face a maximum penalty of twenty years in prison, with a lifetime of supervised release.

These clowns didn’t get very far in actually planning acts of violence in support of ISIS, and they seem to have somewhat missed the boat- ISIS has largely been defeated by American-backed Kurdish militias and the Iraqi and Syrian governments. But they deserve punishment nonetheless.
