WAR DRUMS: President Trump Gives the Order to ‘Shoot Down and Destroy’ Iranian Boats

This is another escalation that could lead to war.

Published

President Donald Trump announced on Wednesday morning that he has given the okay for the U.S. to “shoot down and destroy” Iranian boats if they are found to be “harassing” American warships.

He made the declaration via tweet:

This follows news that Iranian fast boats came into close proximity with U.S. warships near Kuwait last week. Iran blamed the incident on “the unprofessional and provocative actions of the United States and their indifference to warnings.”

Despite President Trump’s order, the Navy maintains that the “U.S. forces continue to remain vigilant” and “are trained to act in a professional manner” during tense incidents.

Iran is not apparently prepared to back down due to Trump’s threats.

“All you need to do is stop interfering in the affairs of other nations; mine especially,” wrote Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif in a tweet.

“And believe me, we do not take advice from ANY American politician,” Zarif added.

Relations between the U.S. and the Iranians have soured throughout the year ever since Iranian General Qassim Solemani was assassinated via drone strike in January. The ramifications are still being felt from that aggressive maneuver.

Big League Politics reported on it at the time:

President Donald Trump ordered an airstrike that killed Iranian General Qassim Solemani in Baghdad Thursday, responding to attacks on the US Embassy in the country by Shia militia by striking their Iranian allies forcefully.

Soleimani was a commander of Iran’s elite Revolutionary Guard, and had been a significant player in Middle Eastern geopolitics for years. Soleimani trained and equipped many of the Shia militias that fought American troops in Iraq after the 2003 invasion of the country.

He would go on to lead military operations as a representative of Iran in the Syrian Civil War, and the war against the ensuing spillover of the ISIS caliphate into Iraq.

Sources indicate that Soleimani was killed by incoming rocket projectiles as he disembarked from a plane arriving at the Baghdad airport.

It goes without saying to American patriots that the Shia Islamist militant was a villain. But it’s worth considering the broader national security considerations of the operation. Neocons may seek to use the operation as a launching pad for full-fledged regime change war in the Middle East.

However, it’s also worth noting that the Trump administration has taken decisive yet limited military action in the region that didn’t result in prolonged conflicts. President Trump has attacked Syrian President Bashar al-Assad’s regime twice during his tenure, but Assad has secured a favorable, stable position in the nation’s seemingly endless and proxy-ridden civil war.

President Trump once called the Iraq war “the single worst decision ever made.” He accused former President George W. Bush of “throwing a big fat brick into a hornet’s nest” for his decision to militarily invade iraq and was elected on a platform of putting America first and staying out of geopolitical conflicts.

Now, President Trump may be falling into the same trap that Bush fell into with Iran.

Biden Administration Declares War on Fossil Fuels, Announces End of Keystone Pipeline Day One of Presidency

Biden’s war on American prosperity.

Published

on

“President-elect” Joe Biden intends to undo the economic progress made during the legitimate presidency of Donald Trump by ending the Keystone XL Pipeline on the first day of his incoming administration. 

Biden reportedly has “Rescind Keystone XL pipeline permit” as an item on his Day 1 agenda. This will likely lead to higher gas prices as it will be followed up with additional action to cripple the fossil fuel industry.

The $9 billion pipeline project has become a politically-contentious issue over the years, as environmental activists have sought to stop its production. These far-left extremists will be getting a huge victory from Biden as he seizes power.

Far-left activist Jane Kleeb of Nebraska, who now leads the Democrat Party of Nebraska, is encouraged by the move. She and thousands of socialist activists are agitating to push the party toward the far-left with great success.

“A decade of fighting and a scrappy Dem from Scranton (Biden) will be the one to hear the scrappy and very unlikely alliance of pipeline fighters. On. Day. One. #FingersCrossed #NoKXL,” Kleeb tweeted.

The move is so extreme that even soy-infused Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau is standing in opposition.

Big League Politics has reported on Biden’s extreme environmental agenda that will cripple jobs and end America’s economic independence:

Joe Biden’s announcement that he plans on a “transition away” from the use of fossil fuels as an energy source may not go over smoothly with the people of Pennsylvania- a state that has scored as the second largest producer of natural gas anywhere in the country.

Joe Biden admitted at the Thursday debate that he plans to “transition away from the oil industry,” citing pollution…

The United States Energy Information Administration identifies a considerable 20.0% of national natural gas production as coming from the state of Pennsylvania, making it the second biggest producer behind Texas. The state punches well above its weight in doing so, producing almost as much natural gas as Texas despite having less than half of its population.

Biden has sought to dismiss his track record of support for the banning of fracking oil extraction, employing a similar thinly veiled rhetorical trick by stating he’d only decline to allow any new fracking.

The energy industry continues to be a source of gainful, family-supporting employment for over ten million Americans. It’s not an option to “transition away” from the use of fossil fuels in the immediate future- a fact Biden tacitly admitted to after the debate suggestion, perhaps indicating that he realized the political folly of the statement.

Biden intends to live up to his campaign boasts about destroying the fossil fuel industry. Americans are going to have to suffer for at least four years.
