US General Michael Flynn officially put Iran on notice after Houthi rebels from Yemen attacked a Saudi Arabian naval ship. He blamed Iran for the attack because it previously backed the Houthis. General Flynn did not mention that Saudi Arabia has been attacking Yemen since 2015. In a separate event, Iran tested several ballistic missiles that the US says is in violation of the UN nuclear agreement. – GEG
It wasn’t hard to see this coming. President Trump’s National Security Advisor, Gen. Michael Flynn, delivered a clear threat to the government of Iran today, ominously stating that “as of this day, we are officially putting Iran on notice.” What is less clear is the the General’s rationale for issuing the threat.
Flynn cites two justifications for bringing the US on war footing against Iran. Both are dubious. First, he blames Iran for a recent attack on a Saudi naval vessel carried out by Houthi forces in Yemen. According to Flynn, because the Houthis are backed by Iran – itself a specious claim – it is Iran that is actually responsible for the attack.
Even if it were true that the Houthis are Iranian proxies, this kind of guilt-by-association reasoning gets quite awkward when considering what some US-backed rebels in Syria have done with US-provided weapons and training. Like beheading young boys.
What Flynn fails to mention is that Saudi Arabia has been attacking neighboring Yemen since 2015, with US assistance, leaving tens of thousands killed and injured and the Middle East’s poorest country in the midst of devastating famine. Saudi Arabia’s war on Yemen was unprovoked, initiated only to force Riyadh’s preferred leader onto its southern neighbor. Under Flynn’s logic, it is perfectly fine for Saudi Arabia to initiate a genocidal war of aggression against another country. But the victim of the attack had better not fight back or the United States will blame yet a third country that has nothing to do with it.
Professor Gary Minden told a foreign student who was using an online translation system on a cell phone that the student should “learn English.” Students in the class were offended by the suggestion and Minden has been suspended. Political correctness has run amok.
Caroline Farrow, a British Catholic journalist, is being investigated by the police for “misgendering” someone in a tweet. She was contacted by authorities after making an appearance on “Good Morning Britain,” in which she engaged in a debate with a transgender activist last September.
Writer, Bob Moser, who was employed by the SPLC, published an article in the New Yorker exposing the SPLC as a fundraising scam. Moser says the SPLC’s business model centers around keeping its donors in constant fear using gimmicks such as “hate maps” and “hate lists.”
Israel’s foreign minister says that President Trump is expected to sign an Executive Order to recognize Israel’s sovereignty over the Golan Heights, which is a strategic military area and also provides one-third of Israel’s fresh water. It also is rich in oil.
US Representative Jim Jordan (R-OH) said the dismissal of two key investigators, Andrew Weissmann and Zainab Ahmad, at the start of March may be due to bias as they knew Christopher Steele, the author of the discredited dossier, was “desperate to stop Trump.”
This is not the end of Trump’s problems as federal and state prosecutors are pursuing other investigations that grew out of Mueller’s probe. The new investigations focus on Trump, his family business, his advisors and associates, and will not be limited to “Russian collusion”.
Heather MacDonald, author of ‘The Diversity Delusion,’ set the record straight about the hysteria over “white supremacy” in America that she says is a fabrication by leftists and is disproven by the statistics. She says there are the same number of reported “hate” crimes today as there were 10 years ago when there were 25 million fewer people in the US.
It is unclear how the new grant restrictions will be enforced, prompting concern from critics that research grants could be stripped from schools that oppose the views and goals of the federal government and the grant-giving agencies, and that research will be micromanaged.
Democrat Andrew Gillum, the Tallahassee mayor who lost the governor’s race by less than half a percentage point, seeks to turn Florida blue by registering new voters, and is targeting 1.4 million former felons in line to have their voting rights restored under a constitutional amendment approved by voters last year.
Milan, Italy: A bus filled with 51 children from a middle school was set on fire by its driver, Ousseynou Sy, a man originally from Senegal but with Italian citizenship. This was done to seek revenge for the migrants who have drowned due to Italy’s blocking migrant boats.
The mass murder of Christians is being censored by Western media, because those who control mainstream media consider Christians to be an obstacle to “progress”. As a result, most Americans do not know that 4,136 Christians were killed for faith-related reasons last year.

Offline is a documentary on the inevitability of the Earth being slammed by a mega solar flare – not the common type that interrupts communications and creates a light show in the Northern skies – but the big brothers thousands of times more powerful. These monsters deliver enough energy to blow apart the master transformers that supply the planet’s energy grids. When that happens, the lights go out for longer than anyone wants to think about. These X-Class solar storms hit the Earth every 150 years, on average. The last one arrived 156 years ago. We are overdue (More)
Ten Days at Jekyll Island, a novel by Patrea Patrick, tells the true story of a secret meeting held in November of 1910 on a privately owned resort island, the outcome of which drastically changed the world. It was at this meeting that a banking cartel was forged; a cartel that, three years later, would be issued a government charter to do business as The United States Federal Reserve System. You will discover why secrecy was essential. Based on historical documentation from The Creature from Jekyll Island by G. Edward Griffin. (More)
This three-part video may be the most controversial video we have ever featured. Predictably, defenders of the Israeli state will challenge the portrayal of Israel as an aggressor. We are publishing this, not as a condemnation of Israel’s foreign policy, but because the commentator, Jake Morphonios, has been incredibly accurate with predictions of events in the Middle East. Now he is saying the aggressive foreign policy of Israel, the Saudis, and the US acting together is designed to escalate into a full-blown World War that will involve Russia, China, and much of the rest of the world. In view of Jakes’s amazing record of accurate predictions, we believe it would be foolish to ignore him.
John McCain was born into a military family. He was shot down in Vietnam and held captive for five and a-half years. His fellow prisoners testified that McCain had cooperated with their captors to gain favors. After he was elected to the Senate in 1998 on his image as a hero, he became a war hawk.
The mainstream media is ignoring the history of US meddling in Iran, beginning in 1953, when the CIA and the UK overthrew the Iranian government in a coup known as ‘Operation Ajax’, after the populist leader, Mosaddegh, nationalized its oil fields. De-classified documents reveal that the CIA bused in protesters and paid pro-Shah mobsters to stage riots. The Shah was put in power and was later overthrown in 1979. Former US President, Jimmy Carter, staged a failed coup, and 52 American citizens were taken hostage. The current protests in Iran could be leading toward another coup.
