Back in the late 70's...on a normal day after school, just before dinner, the sky was overcast and cold. For some reason, the image remains in my memory thirty-five years later. I was wearing a favorite Cardigan sweater, Navy blue with a pair of white rings around the Left arm. The tops of the Ranch-Style homes were visible from my viewpoint — bike tires, sneakers, frisbees...if it existed, we had it on our roofs. On this particular afternoon, all of the kids on the block were standing around by the culvert. That is everyone but me. Yep, I was at the top, ten-to-twelve feet higher than the peasants of my former world — king for day. I had climbed to top of the scrawny tree in the Presnell's yard, the dare — accepted and conquered!

That royal stint...short-lived.

SNAP!!!

Darkness slowly allowed light to creep in and I needed something...air! My next breath!

The top of the tree (the section exclusively in my grasp) completely separated from the main section of the weak tree and I had plummeted to the ground, I landed flat on my back. So, there I was...rolling around in my neighbor's front yard, all of my friends were watching helplessly (I am sure some snickered) while I fought for air...any air!

While in agony, the scrawny tree...leaned limp over me. It was maimed and split at the top after giving way to my fall. We were both such a pitiful sight, yet I was completely the one to blame. Slowly, allowing more oxygen to my lungs, the tears gushed. I made my pathetic walk home (back to peasanthood), with snot, dirt, and other unknown particles caked upon my face and body. Our house was a couple hundred yards away — I believe my sister translated for me as the details were relayed my mother. In no way was I able to communicate after that fall.

After recovering, in retrospect, I remember standing below the tree, looking up and wondering why I even accepted the dare in the first place. Later on in life, however, that day provided a teachable moment.

When climbing a tree — just like taking steps in life — I learned to be careful about stepping further than my footing can provide support. When a tree outgrows its roots there will be trouble. Since that day I have made mistakes and more will be made. In regret, one of the toughest lessons in my life has been, avoiding wise counsel. Particularly, the exact same advice that I had given to another in the past. This is known as Hypocrisy — guilty as charged! Not doing in my own life what I would want for my own children and loved ones.

My wife and I are still in the process of raising our three boys...we have been for nearly 20 years. The lesson that I learned on that overcast day has been employed (whether they realized it or not) to caution them on more than on occasion, I have noticed one or all of them scaling a flimsy “Japanese Dogwood' or inching too far away from the warm and fuzzy safety of an Oak's massive trunk. It is at that moment, it seems that the physical breath vacated from my lungs in the late 70's quickly inflates my parental intuition to warn them in the present.

That simple moment was such a huge lesson to benefit my sons and hopefully generations-to-come. So be encouraged to grow from your mistakes and please know this...there will be more disappointments! But stay rooted, grounded in what is absolute and good. Yet, when (not if) you make mistakes, be sure to learn from them. Stay within the strength the tree and your established, strong roots.

Collossians 2:7-8 ”...rooted and built up in him and established in the faith, just as you were taught, abounding in thanksgiving. 8)See to it that no one takes you captive by philosophy and empty deceit, according to human tradition, according to the elemental spirits of the world, and not according to Christ.”

Recently, an unexpected missile strike by the U.S. military resulted in the death of Iran's top General, Qassem Soleimani on Jan. 2. President Donald J. Trump ordered the strike, he also attached a message to North Korean regime. Without debate, the experts on foreign policy could set you and I down at a large roundtable and enlighten us. For the sake of time, I just wanted to list the main takeaways if I could. To keep matters relative, there are three key fact that I have discovered from recent reporting that are closely related to the strategic neutralization of the Iranian terrorist. All three of these point concern the impact from North Korea will never recover. For the sake of U.S. foreign interests and national safety, that is certainly best.

Let's quickly consider several of the results/contributions of Soleimani's vaporizing moment...

  1. The cash flow... that streams into Pyongyang — 10 percent of North Korea's GDP 1which will have deep-seated economic and political ramifications for the communist regime.

  2. The missiles... launched by Iran on Jan. 8 in retalion of the terrorist's demise also implicates the North Korean leadership. Even though they didn't harm any U.S. or Iraqi forces, it is strongly believed that the intelligent projectile is a copy of the North Korean (Hwasong-6) missile. The model is believed to be a (Qiam) version used by the QUDS Iranian force, which is patterned after the NK short-range ballistic weapon.

  3. The action... taken by the U.S. President and his administration.

    There is a simple message to Pyongyang:

    “there is a limit to U.S. patience,“2

If this is how Trump dealt with Soleimani and is sanctioning Iran, then what lies in wait for a testy North Korean regime that may wish to push the envelope of foreign muscle? After all, just this past December the U.S. was promised a “Christmas Gift” from Pyongyang. As I shared in the beginning of this piece, there are many other points that we could cover, but there is an old saying…”Speak softly and carry a big stick”.

Consider the billions of dollars the POTUS is adding defense spending to our defense budget, to our Pacific forces. One reassuring fact is evident, the leader of the free world pulled the United States out of the Iran three years ago for a wise purpose and it is definitely speaking loudly to other dangerous foes of our great nation in other parts of the world as well. “Iran failed to protect America's na- tional security interests” and “en- abled its malign behavior, while at best delaying its ability to pursue nuclear weapons and allowing it to preserve nuclear research and development,” according to the White House.

Maybe by not speaking much at all, just showing up in force when needed is more than enough to convince North Korea and others in this world.


1 As reported by Gordon Chang, commentator and author of “The Coming Collapse of China,” to the Epoch Times 2 Mark Cancian, a senior adviser with the Center for Strategic and International Studies' International Security Program, told The Epoch Times

What would my life be like? Diammetrically opposite of the one that I live now?

Tonight as I sat listening to the quiet forest behind my property, secure and safe, I wondered about so many things—important matters. As the news has been reported across the screens of my devices and television screens, I have seen familiar words such as “rockets” and “regimes”. Countries are pitted against one another with rhetoric and nuclear arsenals, flexing respective military might. Nations in the Middle East are unstable, they have been for decades, as long as I have been able to remember.

When I was a young lad in the mid 80's, I remember the Reagan years. NASA was booming and the Space Shuttle program was full speed ahead. We had great progress to report and the Iran-Contra scandal was right there a part of the discussion. America's President, my personal hero (then and still) was dedicated to peace through strength and he held close to that ideology, eventually tearing down the walls of communism — literally!

I thought about this past week, the unrest in Iran and Iraq while considering my childhood. I recall so many blessings that I have been provided as an American — my inalienable rights by virtue of the U.S. Consitution, as an American citizen. Merely by being born in this nation, so many rights, so much security, such freedom and liberty is granted to me as a citizen in this country. When I stop long enough to truly embrace the magnitude of the many blessings it is tremendous. Think of the providence by way of the drafting, ratification and especially the sacrifices of so many men and women who have fought, sacrificed and died to preserve these treasured blessings.

There is a yet another thought to ponder...what about those who are born under a jihadist regime? A communist flag? Let's say the North Korean tyrant Kim Jong-Un?

Many may say that these nations are full of mad, bloodthirsty monsters, ready to kill Americans. That is not entirely true my friend. For every militant, communist, jihadist and evil-minded butcher representing these axis-power countries, there are thousands of peace-seeking, humble humans desiring a normal, common life. So many testimonies from Christian missionaries exist concerning those who risk their lives for the freedom to worship, work, live and love in a democratic society.

What would it be like to live under the control of a regime? That was my thought this evening, as it has been over many years prior. When tense times like these arise, I suppose they just seem to creep into my comfortable American life with bit more importance. It seems pathetic on my behalf that it has to take such dramatic matters and situations to occur in order for me to truly put myself aside and really put others first. I guess when I live on the other side of the world it is easy to just avoid it and move on with my cushy life in the West...ridiculous, guilty as charged.

Fortunately, I have the luxury to just turn off the devices or lay the newspaper aside and ignore the matters of the Middle East or Asia. Sadly, for those in Iran, the Persian Gulf, Africa and Asia, it's not so easy. So tonight, I will at least peg these keys on my MacBook and consider how fortunate that I am for the warm blanket of freedom with which my family and my fellow citizens rest under, along with yours truly. I will pray for the armed forces as they go and serve this country and follow the direction of our POTUS.

May God protect the troops as He guides them. I pray always for Israel as Christ reaches gathers His church. I pray also that those under torturous regimes globally, yearning to flee, that they be granted a safe pathway to the freedom they seek so they may know Christ, Liberty and fulfill the purpose for which God created and called and them.

Are you concerned about the encroaching efforts of the liberal agenda on the 2nd amendment?

Does the freedom of speech provided by our U.S. Constitution even seem to be relevant in out “Cancel” culture anymore?

The right to life, personhood and so many other freedoms are under attack now more than ever in our society. We each have been affected somehow whether we realize it or not.

The 5W's of the Deep State

WHO are these citizens of this ghostly tribe? As I can recall, the first I remember hearing the combination of the two words was in a film starring Will Smith and Gene Hackman, fittingly called Enemy of The State. I mention Hollywood purposely. When America sees the (DS) splashed across the press, whether digital or old fashioned pulp—my favorite—it begs to question how many initially think of celebrities and the images that have been produced? These Jason-Bourne type molds cast men and women that are intelligent, highly agile, strong, keen in intercepting oncoming aggression and of course, able to move about un-detected in urban settings globally.

Consider the tactics in these dark operations. Just a couple of the amazing examples are injecting mysterious tranquilizers into the neck of targets, quickly stashing the unsuspecting victim into a van within seconds and then speeding away to undisclosed locations.

It is not a stretch of the imagination as to HOW this could have happened. Let me share a chilling example that I use to intentionally frighten my youngest (8-year old) son.

On the morning of June 10, in 1991, a sex offender named Phillip Garrido quietly pulled up alongside a 10-year old little girl on her way to the neighborhood bus stop in a quiet Lake Tahoe community. She innocently assumed the man would ask for directions. When he rolled down the window, he shocked her unconscious with a stun gun and abducted her. The kidnapping took no longer that 10 seconds. Garrido, with the help of his wife, grabbed Jaycee Dugard, chunked her little frame into the back floorboard of a Chrysler sedan and fled for a 3hour run back to California. Dugard would spend 18 years in captivity under Garrido’s torture…ultimately be freed with her two children, both fathered by her kidnapper (22 years her senior) by him.

So…if a bumbling pervert and his demented wife can accomplish this deed, imagine what a team of militarily trained, capable operatives can do with better tools, tech and planning.

The techniques of the counterintelligence community are certainly secretive. We know of umbrella tips used to project small-caliber executions at subway terminals, even low dosage radiation darts being mysteriously placed into the body of a target by passers-bay.

WHEN should the American be concerned about the Deep State? Currently, the everyday citizen in plain sight, plain clothes, living a simple life, may be the indirect target of the DS. In contrast, the word “coup” is truly a word flaunted in DC when the integrity of a party leader is in question. The flippant employment of this accusation has crept close to a “card” unashamedly pulled (race, gender, etc.) for political weaponry.

Casey Kasem coined the phrase… “Keep your feet on the ground and keep reaching for the stars.” This clandestine element that has built a reputation may not be so elusive after all. Like all other groups, chapters and organizations, the Deep State surely has to have a mantra, spoken or not, an agreed practice if you will. We all have certain words, phrases and statements that we recite in order to self-check. Possibly this cell of the invisible marauders has lost its restraint among the indiviual operators within its ranks.

Has the Deep State reached too far? Did the operative pool of conspirators within the US government expose itself due to political fervor-unfeigned?

Be on the lookout as the indiivual, governed citizen…Where you live out your life of freedom is exactly WHERE the Deep State will be…hidden of course.

What a bedazzling display of fireworks to wrap up 2019! Even though it may have been plastered on the massive screens that stand above Times Square, that was not a reference to the ball-drop festivities hosted by Seacrest and his entourage. Rather, this concerns D.C. and the redundant shrapnel of political weaponry lobbed to and fro over the House/Senate barrier concerning procedural control of the impeachment process from this point forward.

We could all agree that the impeachment issue is one that is important, but many might say that they have heard enough, agreed. But what about Australia? What about the fuel shortages, evacuations, the navy having to transport many that are fleeing to safer regions? Sadly, we have also seen thousands and homes and families displaced due to the raging wildfires that have raced across so many acres of land and the monster has yet to stop.

And of course, we witnesses the embassy in Baghdad that was attacked by Iran-backed protesters and the main topic of discussion was the grand finale…the missile strikes executed by the US military against several key Iranian butchers.

There are so many topics about which a news agency can report, considering the list of these events that I have just shared. Apparently, just based on reporting, the main focus seems to the POTUS. Sadly, the majority, if not most of the narrative was chocked full your basic talking points, passed on and warmed over from one MSM outlet to the next as usual. Just as I was grabbing a bite treat this afternoon, the dedicated #sotucnn interview with Elizabeth Warren claimed that the strikes were an assassination and “possibly” an attempt to divert attention away from the impeachment focus on Capitol Hill. That brings brings me to a great opening point concerning the topics of discussion this past weekend.

Authority to execute

There has been an ongoing attack on the power of the Executive Branch (shocker), one sacred to the integrity of the balance of powers in US Government and all past presidents up to this point anyway.⁠1 Trump, however, did notify key members senate members of his intentions prior to the clandestine and time-sensitive operation.⁠2

This is my opinion in of course, but [I am willing to suggest that several of these “key members” of the Senate, were [likely] involved in the actual planning phase of the strike]. That can not be proven as of yet, but many during recent interviews and commentaries have alluded to their personal involvement in the process and suggest that upcoming revelations of sensitive details will be forthcoming.

Their is a such a sense of collective confidence in these statements that is threaded through the tapestry of the dialogue, that it difficult for anyone with “common sense” not understand that the proper channels were notified. Clearly, the radical Left wants to portray, this strategic assault as one that was carried out in recklessness, arrogance or through some wild mixture of both. The powers granted the Commander-In-Chief under the the Patriot Act, grant a sitting us president full authority to execute a military strike on any terrorist within the borders of North America. As for the Middle East, particularly the Persian Gulf, the POTUS has full military authority to strike enemy combatants just the same.

When your making a governmental, legislative move, you consult politicians, lawmakers and sadly (occupational hazard) there will be the occasional communist-victicrats included. When you need to rid the world of blood-thirsty ideology-driven butchers, you sit down with the ones who can handle the job. Our POTUS consulted with his military, he didn’t muscle anyone around. He wisely factored in sound, collective counsel, with the need to deter future Iranian attack plans and ultimately, on the foundation of the solid US-BASED intelligence, (not often found in large supply on Capitol Hill) he made the final decision to go with the strike.

The Architect of Evil

Soleimani “was” a decades-long architect of operations for Iranian Republican Guard QUDS Forces (IRGQF), responsible for 17 percent of U.S. personnel deaths in Iraq from 2003 to 2011, which is about 603 deaths (DOD). The Tyrannical rhetoric of the religious leader (Ali Khamenei) of Iran clearly indicates his purpose in the terrorist regime.

“Years of sincere, brave efforts fighting against the devils & villainous in the world and years of wishing for martyrdom on the path of God finally took the dear Commander of Islam, Soleimani, to this lofty status. His blood was shed by the most barbaric of men,”

Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei Via Twitter

US—Middle East Relationships:Post-Strike

Just as recently as today, the Iraqi Parliament has began discussions toward drafting resolutions that will expel the US occupation forces from the Persian Gulf region. Washington has a different approach to dealing with Iran now and that will certainly affect past relations.⁠3 That is certainly been greeted with mixed responses from both sides of the aisle. However, analysts say that it is a good step towards an over-arching campaign, complex as it may be, to cutting off major routes of operation.⁠4 No matter the ginned up theatrics created in Tehran, nor the proliferation of the regime’s propaganda by the state-ran media, no one is truly taken aback by this attack on Iran’s top mastermind of terror.⁠5 Even so, the Iranians are not expected to sit on their hands and do nothing, especially in the theatre of cyberwarfare⁠6, as many experts worldwide have predicted.

Soleimani was not only a top General commanding the elite IRGQF under Khamenei’s guidance. He was a major influence over the entire basic military that led the Shia-based operations as well. It was through these very networks that an American defense contractor was killed on December 27, 2019. In fact, the strikes killing Soleimani were in direct response to that bloody act of terrorism and needless loss of life.

Contrary to accusations of the POTUS being a provoker of war, Trump has shown great restraint in the past even while Soleimani has been the author of attacks such as these. Recent attacks include the September 14, 2019 Aramco oil attacks and the destroying of an US Drone worth over $200 Billion.

Once the gathered intelligence was satisfactory and the time was strategic, the call was made to go ahead with the strikes made by US jets. There were other targets included in this package. The strikes near Baghdad International Airport that happened early, also eliminated six other Iraqi militia members and senior officials, including 65-year-old Abu Mahdi al-Muhandis, the founder of Kata’ib Hezbollah and Muhammad Reza Al-Jabri, the director of public relations at the PMF.

Al-Muhandis was responsible for attacks against the U.S. and French embassies in Kuwait and was sentenced to death in absentia in a court in Kuwait. Al-Muhandis operated “weapons smuggling networks and participated in bombings of Western embassies and attempted assassinations in the region,” according to TRT World, an Istanbul based media.

Meet the New General, [Not] the Same as the Old General

The Supreme Leader of Iran wasted no time replacing Qassem Soleimani after hemet his demise. Brigadier General Esmail Qaani was appointed less than 12 hours, to assume the lead of the Revolutionary Guard Corps Quds Force. The orders have not changed for the (Quds) “Jerusalem” [that is intended to mean the destruction of Jerusalem BTW] force.

The only changed that has occurred is that of increased fervor. Much to the benefit of Iran, now there is a new Martyr to which they can chant “death to _____” (fill in the blank) as they seek to rid the world of the “infidel” (i.e. everyone else). Here is Qaani’s warm and fuzzy resume’… Iran-Iraq/Syrian Civil war VETERAN intelligence official hardline stance against Israel The American Enterprise institute profiled the new commander in 2012 as “uncharismatic and a less distinguished military commander than Suleimani, but his operational battlefield experience, network within the IRGC, and long history of acquaintance with Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei qualify him for such an appointment.”

“A severe revenge awaits the criminals who have stained their hands with his & the other martyrs’ blood last night,” Khamenei (Supreme Leader) Twitter.

Europe Wants to “De-escalate”?

As the Supreme Leader awaits a martyr’s revenge, the rest of the world resort to crawling in bed with the very regime that has been a threat to international peace for decades. While that is no surprise, France’s Macron was quoted that he was going to “consult with the players in the region”. He begins by calling Putin to only further reveal disdain for the USA, Trump and any credible plan to rid the world of jihadists. His only concern is “tensions in the region”. While Putin is not expected be on the side of good in this fight, Macron should at least be able to make a call to agree to on this strike as a necessary move. But many have suspicions of back-door working with Moscow concerning U.S. Sanctions and how France can be of assistance.

Leftist Germany is chalking the US strikes up to some knee-jerk reaction to Iranian “provocations”⁠7. With arrogance, the world is reassured by the EU nation that they will “try to de-escalate the situation”. Could some of that experience in tampering down terroristic hostility have helped Germany in the past recent attacks amidst Jihad within its own borders? No… wait? They don’t have borders.

Moscow/Syria send Condolences and Condemnation4

Moscow seemed to be reading the script from CNN this week. The fact that a butcher wears the uniform or holds the title of Iranian General is no justifying reason for acts of terrorism. To offer condolences based on ones title or national interest is wicked.

The official Russian Foreign Ministry Website was quoted concerning Soleimani that he…

“faithfully served and defended the national interests of Iran”

…and offered condolences to the Iranian people after his death.

The Syrian government also condemned the killing.

“certain that this cowardly US aggression… will only strengthen determination to follow in the path of the resistance’s martyred leaders.”⁠8

From the past (Obama) administration there was only squeamish, leftist regression. Now, we have witnessed the futile results of payoffs and failed policy. Not to mention the sporadic drone strikes and economic sanctions without a desire for regime change or offensive moves to war.

As noted by VOA, Russia was also at odds with the Trump administration’s abandonment of the 2015 Iran nuclear agreement.

“The last hopes for resolving the problem of the Iran nuclear program have been bombed to shreds,”

Konstantin Kosachev – Foreign Affairs

While Russia has been working with Germany and France to get around U.S. sanctions, it clear that there is something going on that includes Iran. What is the difference between Moscow and Europe’s largest country? France seems to be on a different level of transparency when it comes to allegiance to Iran. Whether it be out of fear or necessity, either way, their on there receiving end of a bad result. As I shared earlier, there is something more to this, but that is for another day.

Beijing Heard the Message: Loud and Clear

Never mind the little fish in the pond, China is the big player in the game, no matter what sport is on the screen. Of course, Beijing is the biggest backer of the Iranian regime, whether it is widely known or well disguised. The CCP was the largest longstanding purchaser of crude oil (prior to U.S. sanctions) and therefore and ally of Tehran. This by default makes Beijing a de-facto sponsor of terrorism. China still finds ways to get the oil via other countries that ignore U.S. sanctions guidelines.

Artillery (Fighter Jets, Missiles/Systems, Ships, Subs, etc.) is provided by China to Iran. China is the major supplier for Iran’s nuclear program and if hard proof is needed there is recent activity of Russia coordinating with while conducting routine drills with Iran’s Naval fleet in the Gulf of Oman. So, the military message sent to Tehran has rang loudest to mainland China and its true leadership, communist regime has truly received a wake-up call.

On the commercial front, China’s President Xi Jingping is expected to sign phase one of a trade deal this very month with President Trump. Now it has been near 18 months in the making that this trade deal has been processing and with the embers of the missile strike will not yet have cooled before the ink has pressed the paper. For that same reason, The Chinese Communist Party (CCP) must sit silent throughout this entire process and not say a word.

Americans Clear the Streets and the Indigenous Celebrate

“U.S. citizens in Iraq are at high risk for violence and kidnapping. Numerous terrorist and insurgent groups are active in Iraq and regularly attack both Iraqi security forces and civilians. Anti-U.S. sectarian militias may also threaten U.S. citizens and Western companies throughout Iraq. Attacks by improvised explosive devices (IEDs) occur in many areas of the country, including Baghdad,” U.S. State Dept.

On the third of January, all Americans in and near Iraq were directed to evacuate immediately. Shortly following that announcement, video footage showing praise and dancing following the death of Soleimani flooded

Secretary Mike Pompeo’s Twitter Feed.

Which read…

“Iraqis—Iraqis—dancing in the street for freedom; thankful that General Soleimani is no more.”

This parade of celebration was the sequel to numerous preceding protests in Iraq that have been happening since October where thousands of indigenous Iraqis filled the war torn streets in Baghdad. Contrary to many other narratives portrayed by the state-ran media of Iran, the protesters decried of a corrupt government and the Iranian regime’s poisonous influence in Iraqi’s sovereign affairs via militias such as the QUDS. Over 450 lives have been taken by security forces using tear gas and live ammunition — mostly protesters.

When the Smoke Cleared, Iran Got the Message

Defense Secretary Mark Esper said on Thursday.

“To Iran and its proxy militias: we will not accept continued attacks against our personnel and forces in the region. Attacks against us will be met with responses in the time, manner, and place of our choosing. We urge the Iranian regime to end their malign activities.”

America has been clear on its limits under the Trump Administration. No mention of a “Red Line” has occurred and after the strike on Iran’s top commander this past Friday, that rhetoric is not necessary to begin with.

“I think the Iranian leadership understands that President Trump will take action. We’ve made this clear for months. When I was the CIA director, we made very clear that these responses would be swift and decisive. We’ve now demonstrated that,”

“Iran Understands Trump Will Take ‘Decisive’ Action After Soleimani Killing”

Secretary of State Mike Pompeo

Fox & Friends—Friday 1/3/20

Trump’s Call to Strike

The United States of America is now led by a man who does not wish to prolong an ongoing war, nor is he interested in provoking another. However, defending sacred American lives has nothing to do with either one of those matters. President Trump clarified his reasoning and his direct intentions for executing the strike on Soleimani.

“He was actively plotting in the region to take actions—a big action, as he described it—that would have put dozens if not hundreds of American lives at risk. We know it was imminent. This was an intelligence-based assessment that drove our decision-making process.” President Trump

So what is at stake for America and what is the direction the POTUS is leading his country…?

“Many factors are at play, including U.S. domestic political struggles, the presidential elections, the Russian and Chinese stances, the ability of Israel to withstand an all-out war between its staunchest ally and its most lethal enemy, and most importantly, Iranian capabilities and military surprises,” “I would presume that the Trump administration had prepared extensive plans for the aftermath of the strike. It is critical for America to prevent Iraq from remaining in Tehran’s grip, as the presence of Iranian regime forces in Iraq, Syria, and Lebanon pose an existential threat to Israel and U.S. strategic interests,” Sam Bazzi

As an expert in Middle East affairs and Hezbollah-related threats, Bazzi paints a clear and vivid portrayal of what Trump faces as he enters into this next decade. But he is not alone, in his responsibility or his risk, Israel is next door to this bloodthirsty regime that is plotting daily to wipe them from the face of the earth.

As the facts are examined over the fireworks of this past week in the Middle East, I must say that I have taken some time to concern myself with the players in this global game of target practice. When you factor in the radical left in Congress, clearly the target is Trump. Iran’s mantra is most definitely “death to America” which equals death to freedom worldwide.

So, by simple deduction, we have to decide…who is supporting Iran, who is hiding a true agenda like Russia, China, North Korea, etc.? Is de-escalation really Macron’s (France) goal or maybe the “players in the region” (Germany) that he speaks of so highly and loosely have a much more important “game” at stake?

In closing, I will share only one reassuring statement that I read throughout this entire week of this first new year as America’s Leader has taken on the regime of Iran. It came from it’s one allied neighbor, not a country that isolated and protected from Iran by any means. As a matter of fact, exactly the opposite, the reassurance came from a small remnant of fierce fighters that have fought for freedom for thousands of years.

“Israel stands with the United States in its just struggle for peace, security, and self-defense,”

Benjamin Netanyahu

What is Trump’s direction for this country? Please make sure you pay close attention to the bold and italic words.

Look closely at who declares him the enemy and consider what truly threatens freedom?

Look closely at his direction for America and consider what truly threatens evil?

Think about it…

God Bless America, Our Armed Forces and God Bless Israel!

What a bedazzling display of fireworks to wrap up 2019! Even though it may have been plastered on the massive screens that stand above Times Square, that was not a reference to the ball-drop festivities hosted by Seacrest and his entourage. Rather, this concerns D.C. and the redundant shrapnel of political weaponry lobbed to and fro over the House/Senate barrier concerning procedural control of the impeachment process from this point forward.

We could all agree that the impeachment issue is one that is important, but many might say that they have heard enough, agreed. But what about Australia? What about the fuel shortages, evacuations, the navy having to transport many that are fleeing to safer regions? Sadly, we have also seen thousands and homes and families displaced due to the raging wildfires that have raced across so many acres of land and the monster has yet to stop.

And of course, we witnesses the embassy in Baghdad that was attacked by Iran-backed protesters and the main topic of discussion was the grand finale…the missile strikes executed by the US military against several key Iranian butchers.

There are so many topics about which a news agency can report, considering the list of these events that I have just shared. Apparently, just based on reporting, the main focus seems to the POTUS. Sadly, the majority, if not most of the narrative was chocked full your basic talking points, passed on and warmed over from one MSM outlet to the next as usual. Just as I was grabbing a bite treat this afternoon, the dedicated #sotucnn interview with Elizabeth Warren claimed that the strikes were an assassination and “possibly” an attempt to divert attention away from the impeachment focus on Capitol Hill. That brings brings me to a great opening point concerning the topics of discussion this past weekend.

Authority to execute

There has been an ongoing attack on the power of the Executive Branch (shocker), one sacred to the integrity of the balance of powers in US Government and all past presidents up to this point anyway.⁠1 Trump, however, did notify key members senate members of his intentions prior to the clandestine and time-sensitive operation.⁠2

This is my opinion in of course, but [I am willing to suggest that several of these “key members” of the Senate, were [likely] involved in the actual planning phase of the strike]. That can not be proven as of yet, but many during recent interviews and commentaries have alluded to their personal involvement in the process and suggest that upcoming revelations of sensitive details will be forthcoming.

Their is a such a sense of collective confidence in these statements that is threaded through the tapestry of the dialogue, that it difficult for anyone with “common sense” not understand that the proper channels were notified. Clearly, the radical Left wants to portray, this strategic assault as one that was carried out in recklessness, arrogance or through some wild mixture of both. The powers granted the Commander-In-Chief under the the Patriot Act, grant a sitting us president full authority to execute a military strike on any terrorist within the borders of North America. As for the Middle East, particularly the Persian Gulf, the POTUS has full military authority to strike enemy combatants just the same.

When your making a governmental, legislative move, you consult politicians, lawmakers and sadly (occupational hazard) there will be the occasional communist-victicrats included. When you need to rid the world of blood-thirsty ideology-driven butchers, you sit down with the ones who can handle the job. Our POTUS consulted with his military, he didn’t muscle anyone around. He wisely factored in sound, collective counsel, with the need to deter future Iranian attack plans and ultimately, on the foundation of the solid US-BASED intelligence, (not often found in large supply on Capitol Hill) he made the final decision to go with the strike.

The Architect of Evil

Soleimani “was” a decades-long architect of operations for Iranian Republican Guard QUDS Forces (IRGQF), responsible for 17 percent of U.S. personnel deaths in Iraq from 2003 to 2011, which is about 603 deaths (DOD). The Tyrannical rhetoric of the religious leader (Ali Khamenei) of Iran clearly indicates his purpose in the terrorist regime.

“Years of sincere, brave efforts fighting against the devils & villainous in the world and years of wishing for martyrdom on the path of God finally took the dear Commander of Islam, Soleimani, to this lofty status. His blood was shed by the most barbaric of men,”

Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei Via Twitter

US—Middle East Relationships:Post-Strike

Just as recently as today, the Iraqi Parliament has began discussions toward drafting resolutions that will expel the US occupation forces from the Persian Gulf region. Washington has a different approach to dealing with Iran now and that will certainly affect past relations.⁠3 That is certainly been greeted with mixed responses from both sides of the aisle. However, analysts say that it is a good step towards an over-arching campaign, complex as it may be, to cutting off major routes of operation.⁠4 No matter the ginned up theatrics created in Tehran, nor the proliferation of the regime’s propaganda by the state-ran media, no one is truly taken aback by this attack on Iran’s top mastermind of terror.⁠5 Even so, the Iranians are not expected to sit on their hands and do nothing, especially in the theatre of cyberwarfare⁠6, as many experts worldwide have predicted.

Soleimani was not only a top General commanding the elite IRGQF under Khamenei’s guidance. He was a major influence over the entire basic military that led the Shia-based operations as well. It was through these very networks that an American defense contractor was killed on December 27, 2019. In fact, the strikes killing Soleimani were in direct response to that bloody act of terrorism and needless loss of life.

Contrary to accusations of the POTUS being a provoker of war, Trump has shown great restraint in the past even while Soleimani has been the author of attacks such as these. Recent attacks include the September 14, 2019 Aramco oil attacks and the destroying of an US Drone worth over $200 Billion.

Once the gathered intelligence was satisfactory and the time was strategic, the call was made to go ahead with the strikes made by US jets. There were other targets included in this package. The strikes near Baghdad International Airport that happened early, also eliminated six other Iraqi militia members and senior officials, including 65-year-old Abu Mahdi al-Muhandis, the founder of Kata’ib Hezbollah and Muhammad Reza Al-Jabri, the director of public relations at the PMF.

Al-Muhandis was responsible for attacks against the U.S. and French embassies in Kuwait and was sentenced to death in absentia in a court in Kuwait. Al-Muhandis operated “weapons smuggling networks and participated in bombings of Western embassies and attempted assassinations in the region,” according to TRT World, an Istanbul based media.

Meet the New General, [Not] the Same as the Old General

The Supreme Leader of Iran wasted no time replacing Qassem Soleimani after hemet his demise. Brigadier General Esmail Qaani was appointed less than 12 hours, to assume the lead of the Revolutionary Guard Corps Quds Force. The orders have not changed for the (Quds) “Jerusalem” [that is intended to mean the destruction of Jerusalem BTW] force.

The only changed that has occurred is that of increased fervor. Much to the benefit of Iran, now there is a new Martyr to which they can chant “death to _____” (fill in the blank) as they seek to rid the world of the “infidel” (i.e. everyone else). Here is Qaani’s warm and fuzzy resume’… Iran-Iraq/Syrian Civil war VETERAN intelligence official hardline stance against Israel The American Enterprise institute profiled the new commander in 2012 as “uncharismatic and a less distinguished military commander than Suleimani, but his operational battlefield experience, network within the IRGC, and long history of acquaintance with Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei qualify him for such an appointment.”

“A severe revenge awaits the criminals who have stained their hands with his & the other martyrs’ blood last night,” Khamenei (Supreme Leader) Twitter.

Europe Wants to “De-escalate”?

As the Supreme Leader awaits a martyr’s revenge, the rest of the world resort to crawling in bed with the very regime that has been a threat to international peace for decades. While that is no surprise, France’s Macron was quoted that he was going to “consult with the players in the region”. He begins by calling Putin to only further reveal disdain for the USA, Trump and any credible plan to rid the world of jihadists. His only concern is “tensions in the region”. While Putin is not expected be on the side of good in this fight, Macron should at least be able to make a call to agree to on this strike as a necessary move. But many have suspicions of back-door working with Moscow concerning U.S. Sanctions and how France can be of assistance.

Leftist Germany is chalking the US strikes up to some knee-jerk reaction to Iranian “provocations”⁠7. With arrogance, the world is reassured by the EU nation that they will “try to de-escalate the situation”. Could some of that experience in tampering down terroristic hostility have helped Germany in the past recent attacks amidst Jihad within its own borders? No… wait? They don’t have borders.

Moscow/Syria send Condolences and Condemnation4

Moscow seemed to be reading the script from CNN this week. The fact that a butcher wears the uniform or holds the title of Iranian General is no justifying reason for acts of terrorism. To offer condolences based on ones title or national interest is wicked.

The official Russian Foreign Ministry Website was quoted concerning Soleimani that he…

“faithfully served and defended the national interests of Iran”

…and offered condolences to the Iranian people after his death.

The Syrian government also condemned the killing.

“certain that this cowardly US aggression… will only strengthen determination to follow in the path of the resistance’s martyred leaders.”⁠8

From the past (Obama) administration there was only squeamish, leftist regression. Now, we have witnessed the futile results of payoffs and failed policy. Not to mention the sporadic drone strikes and economic sanctions without a desire for regime change or offensive moves to war.

As noted by VOA, Russia was also at odds with the Trump administration’s abandonment of the 2015 Iran nuclear agreement.

“The last hopes for resolving the problem of the Iran nuclear program have been bombed to shreds,”

Konstantin Kosachev – Foreign Affairs

While Russia has been working with Germany and France to get around U.S. sanctions, it clear that there is something going on that includes Iran. What is the difference between Moscow and Europe’s largest country? France seems to be on a different level of transparency when it comes to allegiance to Iran. Whether it be out of fear or necessity, either way, their on there receiving end of a bad result. As I shared earlier, there is something more to this, but that is for another day.

Beijing Heard the Message: Loud and Clear

Never mind the little fish in the pond, China is the big player in the game, no matter what sport is on the screen. Of course, Beijing is the biggest backer of the Iranian regime, whether it is widely known or well disguised. The CCP was the largest longstanding purchaser of crude oil (prior to U.S. sanctions) and therefore and ally of Tehran. This by default makes Beijing a de-facto sponsor of terrorism. China still finds ways to get the oil via other countries that ignore U.S. sanctions guidelines.

Artillery (Fighter Jets, Missiles/Systems, Ships, Subs, etc.) is provided by China to Iran. China is the major supplier for Iran’s nuclear program and if hard proof is needed there is recent activity of Russia coordinating with while conducting routine drills with Iran’s Naval fleet in the Gulf of Oman. So, the military message sent to Tehran has rang loudest to mainland China and its true leadership, communist regime has truly received a wake-up call.

On the commercial front, China’s President Xi Jingping is expected to sign phase one of a trade deal this very month with President Trump. Now it has been near 18 months in the making that this trade deal has been processing and with the embers of the missile strike will not yet have cooled before the ink has pressed the paper. For that same reason, The Chinese Communist Party (CCP) must sit silent throughout this entire process and not say a word.

Americans Clear the Streets and the Indigenous Celebrate

“U.S. citizens in Iraq are at high risk for violence and kidnapping. Numerous terrorist and insurgent groups are active in Iraq and regularly attack both Iraqi security forces and civilians. Anti-U.S. sectarian militias may also threaten U.S. citizens and Western companies throughout Iraq. Attacks by improvised explosive devices (IEDs) occur in many areas of the country, including Baghdad,” U.S. State Dept.

On the third of January, all Americans in and near Iraq were directed to evacuate immediately. Shortly following that announcement, video footage showing praise and dancing following the death of Soleimani flooded

Secretary Mike Pompeo’s Twitter Feed.

Which read…

“Iraqis—Iraqis—dancing in the street for freedom; thankful that General Soleimani is no more.”

This parade of celebration was the sequel to numerous preceding protests in Iraq that have been happening since October where thousands of indigenous Iraqis filled the war torn streets in Baghdad. Contrary to many other narratives portrayed by the state-ran media of Iran, the protesters decried of a corrupt government and the Iranian regime’s poisonous influence in Iraqi’s sovereign affairs via militias such as the QUDS. Over 450 lives have been taken by security forces using tear gas and live ammunition — mostly protesters.

When the Smoke Cleared, Iran Got the Message

Defense Secretary Mark Esper said on Thursday.

“To Iran and its proxy militias: we will not accept continued attacks against our personnel and forces in the region. Attacks against us will be met with responses in the time, manner, and place of our choosing. We urge the Iranian regime to end their malign activities.”

America has been clear on its limits under the Trump Administration. No mention of a “Red Line” has occurred and after the strike on Iran’s top commander this past Friday, that rhetoric is not necessary to begin with.

“I think the Iranian leadership understands that President Trump will take action. We’ve made this clear for months. When I was the CIA director, we made very clear that these responses would be swift and decisive. We’ve now demonstrated that,”

“Iran Understands Trump Will Take ‘Decisive’ Action After Soleimani Killing”

Secretary of State Mike Pompeo
Fox & Friends—Friday 1/3/20

Trump’s Call to Strike

The United States of America is now led by a man who does not wish to prolong an ongoing war, nor is he interested in provoking another. However, defending sacred American lives has nothing to do with either one of those matters. President Trump clarified his reasoning and his direct intentions for executing the strike on Soleimani.

“He was actively plotting in the region to take actions—a big action, as he described it—that would have put dozens if not hundreds of American lives at risk. We know it was imminent. This was an intelligence-based assessment that drove our decision-making process.” President Trump

So what is at stake for America and what is the direction the POTUS is leading his country…?

“Many factors are at play, including U.S. domestic political struggles, the presidential elections, the Russian and Chinese stances, the ability of Israel to withstand an all-out war between its staunchest ally and its most lethal enemy, and most importantly, Iranian capabilities and military surprises,” “I would presume that the Trump administration had prepared extensive plans for the aftermath of the strike. It is critical for America to prevent Iraq from remaining in Tehran’s grip, as the presence of Iranian regime forces in Iraq, Syria, and Lebanon pose an existential threat to Israel and U.S. strategic interests,” Sam Bazzi

As an expert in Middle East affairs and Hezbollah-related threats, Bazzi paints a clear and vivid portrayal of what Trump faces as he enters into this next decade. But he is not alone, in his responsibility or his risk, Israel is next door to this bloodthirsty regime that is plotting daily to wipe them from the face of the earth.

As the facts are examined over the fireworks of this past week in the Middle East, I must say that I have taken some time to concern myself with the players in this global game of target practice. When you factor in the radical left in Congress, clearly the target is Trump. Iran’s mantra is most definitely “death to America” which equals death to freedom worldwide.

So, by simple deduction, we have to decide…who is supporting Iran, who is hiding a true agenda like Russia, China, North Korea, etc.? Is de-escalation really Macron’s (France) goal or maybe the “players in the region” (Germany) that he speaks of so highly and loosely have a much more important “game” at stake?

In closing, I will share only one reassuring statement that I read throughout this entire week of this first new year as America’s Leader has taken on the regime of Iran. It came from it’s one allied neighbor, not a country that isolated and protected from Iran by any means. As a matter of fact, exactly the opposite, the reassurance came from a small remnant of fierce fighters that have fought for freedom for thousands of years.

#The 5W's of the Deep State

WHO are these citizens of this ghostly tribe? As I can recall, the first I remember hearing the combination of the two words was in a film starring Will Smith and Gene Hackman, fittingly called Enemy of The State. I mention Hollywood purposely. When America sees the (DS) splashed across the press, whether digital or old fashioned pulp—my favorite—it begs to question how many initially think of celebrities and the images that have been produced? These Jason-Bourne type molds cast men and women that are intelligent, highly agile, strong, keen in intercepting oncoming aggression and of course, able to move about un-detected in urban settings globally.

Consider the tactics in these dark operations. Just a couple of the amazing examples are injecting mysterious tranquilizers into the neck of targets, quickly stashing the unsuspecting victim into a van within seconds and then speeding away to undisclosed locations.

It is not a stretch of the imagination as to HOW this could have happened. Let me share a chilling example that I use to intentionally frighten my youngest (8-year old) son.

On the morning of June 10, in 1991, a sex offender named Phillip Garrido quietly pulled up alongside a 10-year old little girl on her way to the neighborhood bus stop in a quiet Lake Tahoe community. She innocently assumed the man would ask for directions. When he rolled down the window, he shocked her unconscious with a stun gun and abducted her. The kidnapping took no longer that 10 seconds. Garrido, with the help of his wife, grabbed Jaycee Dugard, chunked her little frame into the back floorboard of a Chrysler sedan and fled for a 3hour run back to California. Dugard would spend 18 years in captivity under Garrido’s torture…ultimately be freed with her two children, both fathered by her kidnapper (22 years her senior) by him.

So…if a bumbling pervert and his demented wife can accomplish this deed, imagine what a team of militarily trained, capable operatives can do with better tools, tech and planning.

The techniques of the counterintelligence community are certainly secretive. We know of umbrella tips used to project small-caliber executions at subway terminals, even low dosage radiation darts being mysteriously placed into the body of a target by passers-bay.

WHEN should the American be concerned about the Deep State? Currently, the everyday citizen in plain sight, plain clothes, living a simple life, may be the indirect target of the DS. In contrast, the word “coup” is truly a word flaunted in DC when the integrity of a party leader is in question. The flippant employment of this accusation has crept close to a “card” unashamedly pulled (race, gender, etc.) for political weaponry.

Casey Kasem coined the phrase… “Keep your feet on the ground and keep reaching for the stars.” This clandestine element that has built a reputation may not be so elusive after all. Like all other groups, chapters and organizations, the Deep State surely has to have a mantra, spoken or not, an agreed practice if you will. We all have certain words, phrases and statements that we recite in order to self-check. Possibly this cell of the invisible marauders has lost its restraint among the indiviual operators within its ranks.

Has the Deep State reached too far? Did the operative pool of conspirators within the US government expose itself due to political fervor-unfeigned?

Be on the lookout as the indiivual, governed citizen…Where you live out your life of freedom is exactly WHERE the Deep State will be…hidden of course.
