FBI Director Admits Floyd Protesters, Are Possibly Influenced by Foreign Actors

Currently, America is still reeling from protests and riots fueled by the George Floyd incident.

Non-violent and sometimes violent protests continue to pop up, especially in highly populated urban areas.

Protesters have demanded police and criminal justice overhauls, and called out the perceived oppression of minorities.

But all protests might not be entirely caused by general racial and societal unrest. In fact, the FBI is looking into another possibility.

FBI Director Christopher Wray revealed another possible cause when interviewed by Fox’s Bret Baier:

Foreign influence. Read more…

Trump Orders Navy to ‘Shoot Down and Destroy’ Iranian Gunboats

President Trump has made it his highest priority to keep Americans safe. That includes going hard on our nation’s enemies.

Past presidents seemed to play games with our national security. They drew their “red lines,” then wimped out as our enemies crossed them.

But President Trump has made it clear that if Iran crossed his red line, they will pay. And he just drew another big bright line for the world to see. Read more…

President Trump Announces Increased Military Efforts

Nothing gets me fired up more than seeing our President on stage ready to take action for America.

Yesterday, our Commander in Chief Donald Trump walked out to address the world surrounded by our top military officials.

Trump had one very serious issue to address and he wasted absolutely no time before getting to the point.

He opened:

We must not let the drug cartels exploit the pandemic to threaten American lives…In cooperation with the 22 partner nations, U.S. Southern Command will increase surveillance, disruption and seizures of drug shipments and provide additional support for eradication efforts. Read more…

Trump Draws New Red Line With Iran

Iran has been basically fighting a one-sided war against America before Trump.

They get aggressive, and our leaders cowered. The worst was when President Obama bowed to them by sending them a pallet of cash (amounting to $2 billion of your tax dollars).

But Trump is taking the bull by the horns.

He is not allowing the rogue nation to bully the world any longer. Iran has been threatening war in the Middle East for years.

Now, they are threatening an attack on U.S. soil. They never learn, do they? Read more…

Rep. Omar Stands with “Death to America” Iran

Anti-America Representative Ilhan Omar (D-MN) repeatedly championed Iran in a series of tweets calling for no U.S. retaliation against the mad mullahs despite the series of recent attacks on cargo ships and the downing of a military drone in international airspace. “Just as in Iraq, aggressors are using illegitimate pretexts to beat the drums of war,” Omar tweeted. “Just as in Iraq, our media is taking these claims at face value. Just as in Iraq, children will die, American lives will be lost, and the world will be less safe. #NoWarWithIran” Omar even had the gall to tweet at President Trump, saying that if he takes action against Iran “it makes you weak.” At some point, Democrats may wise up to the political reality that having an outspoken pro-Sharia member among their caucus does not bode well for 2020.

Here’s more from The Daily Wire…

Far-left Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) repeatedly advocated for Iran — the world’s leading state sponsor of terrorism — on Thursday, tweeting multiple times that the United States should not take action against Iran, even as Iran has repeatedly attacked cargo ships in the area and shot down a U.S. military drone this week.

“‘To carry out such wars, American leaders have contrived pretexts to justify American aggression,” Omar said in a tweet that included a link to a news article. “That’s what Donald Trump’s administration—and especially its national security adviser, John Bolton—is doing now with Iran.'”

U.S. Launches Bombing Raid on Syria, Russia Responds

In case you’ve been in a cave or a coma in the last 72 hours, we’re as close to going to war with Russia as we’ve ever been since the inauguration of President Trump little more than a year ago.

Last week, chemical attacks were launched against innocent civilians in Syria which left many dead, including women and children.

In the days following, accusations were leveled on all sides concerning who was responsible. Russia blamed everyone except the Assad regime.

But after deliberating for days, a coalition including the US, Britain, and France argued that intelligence proves Assad launched the attack.

President Trump announced yesterday that the coalition is attacking Syrian chemical weapons assets in response.

That’s when Russia responded with a promise of ‘consequences’. Stay tuned…

Here’s more from Redstate…

Russian Ambassador to the United States Anatoly Antonov has posted the first official response from the country regarding the allied strikes on chemical weapons targets in Syria that took place late Friday night.

“A pre-designed scenario is being implemented,” he warns.

This is a screenshot of the Facebook post from the Russian Embassy, and below that is the text typed out, followed by Gen. Mattis predicting exactly what Russia is doing.

Statement by the Ambassador of Russia to the USA Anatoly Antonov on the strikes on Syria

The worst apprehensions have come true. Our warnings have been left unheard.

A pre-designed scenario is being implemented. Again, we are being threatened. We warned that such actions will not be left without consequences.

All responsibility for them rests with Washington, London and Paris.

Insulting the President of Russia is unacceptable and inadmissible.

The U.S. – the possessor of the biggest arsenal of chemical weapons – has no moral right to blame other countries.

Poll: Nearly Half Support Troops Along The Border

Surprise, surprise. Nearly half of Americans are in favor of President Trump’s order to send the National Guard to the US-Mexico border.

The poll conducted by Politico shows 48 percent of respondents agree that the Guard is needed in order to counteract the flood of illegal immigrants across the border.

While it’s not quite a majority, it’s far greater than the 42 percent who disagreed.

That’s a stark contrast leading up to the November elections, and it could serve as a marker for how those elections will go if immigration remains a major issue.

Stay tuned.

Here’s more from Hotair…

A poll by Politico/Morning Consult found nearly half of Americans surveyed support sending National Guard troops to the border. Of course, there is a stark divide between Democrats and Republicans on the issue.

A plurality of 48 percent support sending troops to the border — greater than the 42 percent who oppose dispatching the National Guard. Nine percent of voters have no opinion of Trump’s order…

“President Trump’s decision to deploy National Guard troops is a hugely popular move with his base,” said Dropp. “Sixty percent of Trump voters ‘strongly’ approve of the decision. Among this same group, 49 percent ‘strongly’ approve of Trump’s job performance overall.”

The partisan split on the issue underscores this divide: Just 22 percent of Democratic voters support sending troops to the border, compared to 84 percent of Republicans. Independents are evenly divided: 44 percent support sending the National Guard to the border, and 44 percent oppose doing so.

As Jazz pointed out Monday, Border Patrol agents appear to be among those who are in support. The number of troops at the border will gradually ramp up until it reaches up to 4,000. CNN reports they are armed but are not expected to be interacting directly with illegal immigrants because they have no authority to detain or arrest anyone.

Rumors of War: Israelis Strike Uprising on Gaza Strip

Israeli military forces fired upon a crowd of over ten thousand Palestinian protestors yesterday during the beginning of what has been called a six-week campaign for Palestinian refugees.

At least 12 people were killed and hundreds wounded both by live fire and tear gas as Israeli forces pushed back to keep the insurgents from crossing the 40-mile Gaza barrier into Israeli territory.

Protestors were also seen burning pictures of President Trump in defiance of the move of the US embassy to Jerusalem.

The planned protest has no doubt been emboldened by the decidedly anti-Israel UN Security Council, which US Ambassador Nikki Haley has called to task in recent months.

This likely will not end well.

Here’s more from Daily Mail…

At least 12 Palestinians have been killed and hundreds hurt during one of the largest Palestinian demonstrations along the Israel-Gaza border in recent years.

Tens of thousands of Palestinians, pressing for a right of return for refugees to what is now Israel, gathered at five locations along the fenced 40-mile frontier where tents were erected for a planned six-week protest, local officials said.

Demonstrators were also seen burning and stamping on posters with the face of U.S. President Donald Trump, who ordered the US embassy in Israel moved from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem. The protesters have vowed to remain at the border until the embassy moves to Jerusalem on May 14.

The Israeli military estimated there were 30,000 demonstrators and used a drone to drop tear gas on the massive crowds.

Gaza health officials said one of the 12 dead was aged 16 and at least 400 people were wounded by live gunfire, while others were struck by rubber bullets or treated for tear gas inhalation.

Families brought their children to the encampments just a few hundred yards from the Israeli security barrier with the Hamas Islamist-run enclave and football fields were marked in the sand and scout bands played.

But as the day wore on, hundreds of Palestinian youths ignored calls from the organizers and the Israeli military to stay away from the frontier, where Israeli soldiers across the border kept watch from dirt mound embankments.

Breaking: FBI Cornered Austin Bomber, Blows Himself Up

The reign of terror in Austin, Texas is over today after local police and the FBI used a series of video surveillance and cell phone triangulation techniques to track down the serial bomber.

As they zeroed in on him in hopes of catching him by surprise, police say he detonated one of his own devices in his car, which he did not survive.

What’s of particular interest, despite his ultimate capture, is that he may have been able to mail more armed packages before he was discovered.

Police have urged Austin area residents to be on alert until the threat has been eliminated completely.

We suppose now it’s time for radical anti-bomb activists to call for a ban on bombs, right?

Here’s more from Redstate…

Wow, huge news breaking out of Austin, Texas as it appears the suspect in a string of bombings has been killed in a gun battle with police.

Austin ABC affiliate KVUE-TV has the stunning story this morning, reporting that law enforcement has confirmed the suspect was killed, following law enforcement tracking him down, and a subsequent face off with FBI and/or police.

The FBI was attempting an arrest when the suspect detonated the device he had on him…

And that’s when the gunfire started. It is unclear if the suspect was already dead from his own device when the shooting began.

Airport Fail Number Two: Computers Offline at Miami Int’l

It wasn’t but a few weeks ago that Atlanta’s international airport was crippled by a mysterious fire in the basement that had passengers stranded in the dark and on the runway.

It took half a day to get everything back online again, but not before thousands of flights around the country were canceled, delayed or redirected.

And now Miami is added to the list of airports that have recently broadcast to terrorists how easy it is to bring American flights to their knees.

Miami’s international airport had thousands of passengers stuck in lines this week after computers went offline for no apparent reason.

One might have thought after 9-11 that simple issues like computers, electricity, and security would’ve been figured out.

And one would be wrong.

Here’s more from CBS…

It’s a rough night for international travelers at Miami International Airport.

Approximately 2,000 passengers are in line at customs at MIA due to an apparent computer outage impacting systems used by U.S. Customs and Border Protection at passport control.

The outage is affecting other airports across the county, according to an official familiar with the situation.

Travelers in Miami say it was a mass of people and a mess.

Jennifer Martin stood in line for hours.  She was frustrated.

“The kiosk machines shut down,” Martin said. “So we couldn’t get our passport pictures down, so they cattled us to this line, then they opened up the line after we been standing in it for an hour and let the people who just got off a flight in front of us in customs.”

Other passengers experienced similar problems.

“The machines for customs and border patrol aren’t working, so all the things are printing out with X’s on them and everyone’s freaking out, so the lines about an hour to get thru,” said Brittany Jason.

U.S. Customs and Border Protection released a statement saying, in part, “U.S. Customs and Border Protection experienced a temporary outage with its processing systems at various airports today beginning at 7:30 pm and ending approximately 9:30 pm.  All airports are currently back on line.
