Day three of the Anti American administration. So far he has destroyed multiple thousands of jobs by stopping the pipeline. Allowed transgendered males to compete in girls and women’s athletics. Allowed transgender‘s to go into the bathroom of their choice. It certainly isn’t morning in America. I almost forgot, he’s going to allow terrorist countries to send their terrorist here.

Middle East

UPDATE: Twin suicide bombs rocked a busy market in central Baghdad on Thursday morning, killing at least 28 people and injuring 73 others, a security official told CNN.

Not my favorite source, but under Biden Middle East becomes a powder keg again.

Israel to Become Part of CENTCOM Amid Geopolitical Shift in Region @BeholdIsrael.org

In what was first reported by the Wall Street Journal, the president ordered that Israel be integrated into Central Command (CENTCOM) for the first time ever, making it the 21st country to join.

Though part of the United States European Command (EUCOM) for many years, Israel is set to become the 21st country to join CENTCOM, which presides over the Middle East and Gulf region. This is of great significance concerning military strategy in the region, especially concerning the growing tension that involves the Gulf States, Israel, the US, and Iran.

In light of the recent normalization of diplomatic ties between Israel and multiple Arab nations over the last four years, the Military Times said, “It is the crowning piece of Trump’s efforts to stitch together disparate nations with a common enemy, following the signing of the Abraham Accords, in which Israel normalized relations with former enemies Bahrain and the United Arab Emirates.”

The Abraham Accords, which have largely been accomplished in the last three months, have normalized diplomatic ties between Israel and the United Arab Emirates (UAE), Bahrain, Sudan, and Morocco, with others believed to follow in the future.

According to the Pentagon, the Abraham Accords opened the door for Israel to join CENTCOM. The Pentagon said, “The easing of tensions between Israel and its Arab neighbors subsequent to the Abraham Accords has provided a strategic opportunity for the United States to align key partners against shared threats in the Middle East.”

They added, “Israel is a leading strategic partner for the United States, and this will open up additional opportunities for cooperation with our U.S. Central Command partners while maintaining strong cooperation between Israel and our European allies.”

Israel’s integration into CENTCOM provides the means for a significant upgrade in intelligence and military transparency in the region.

Retired Marine and former head of the Central Command, General Anthony Zinni, also voiced his optimistic outlook on the news. He presented that while in the past, such a move would have created more friction due to the lack of trust between Israel and the Gulf States. However, amid Israel’s longstanding friendship with the US and ever-improving relationship with Arab nations, he pointed out that there very well may be no better time than now.January 15th, 2021

Pompeo Claims Significant Ties Between Iran and Terrorist Group Al-Qaeda @ BeholdIsraeel.org

Prior to the Trump administration leaving the White House, the secretary of state has released intel regarding the Islamic Republic’s ties to the notorious terror organization.

With the Trump administration soon transitioning out of the White House, his team has been moving quickly to “seal the deal” in regards to several matters related to the Middle East. Several of these matters relate to Israel’s renewed relationship with multiple Arab nations in the region. However, on Tuesday, US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo revealed troubling news related to Israel’s greatest enemy in the region, Iran.

Pompeo claimed that the Iranian regime is acting as host to the Islamic terror organization, Al-Qaeda. He referred to the Islamic Republic as “the new home base” for the organization, and added that “Tehran gives sanctuary to the terror group’s senior leaders as they plan attacks against America and our allies.”

Pompeo continued stating, “Tehran has allowed al-Qaida figures in the country to freely communicate with other al-Qaeda members and perform many functions that were previously directed from Afghanistan and Pakistan, including authorization for attacks, propaganda, and fundraising.”

Earlier in 2020, Al-Qaeda’s number two in command, Abu Muhammad al-Masri was gunned down in the streets of Tehran, which provides strength to the secretary’s claims. Furthermore, the White House is now designating two leaders of the organization who are based in Iran as global terrorists. These include Muhammad Abbatay and Sultan Yusuf Hasan al-‘Arif.

Of course, his claims were met with serious opposition from the Iranian regime. Iranian Foreign Minister Javad Zarif responded via Twitter with tough words.

Pompeo further warned that “the Iran-al-Qaeda axis poses a grave threat to the security of nations and to the American homeland itself, and we are taking action.”January 12th, 2021

Desperate Times

We are living in desperate times. America is facing the very real prospect of a move towards socialism and a move toward far more governmental control in the year 2021. I bellowed and screamed at the top of my lungs how important this election was this year, and many people were asleep, especially many in the church. I see a very chaotic year regardless of who is finally determined to have won the election. Our desperationin America is enhanced by the fact that we are a nation that is split almost 50-50 down the middle about which direction we are to go. People I know have voted for Biden and will not hear of the fact that he is going to lead us towards socialism. In fact their only reason for voting for Biden was a vote against Donald Trump. They think Donald Trump is the antichrist and that he will destroy America. Regardless of who is finally determined to have won the election, we are in for perilous and destructive times. If Trump wins the riots ensue. If Biden wins we face lockdowns and mandated mask and vaccines.

Our division in America is enhanced by the fact that we are a nation that is split almost 50-50 down the middle about which direction we are to go. My fear is with the deep state entrenched in D.C., even if Trump wins we will be headed for destruction. We do not have but a handful In Congress who truly have the best for America in their heart and mind. Most are nothing more than hirelings waiting on the next bribe.

US Deploys B-52 Bombers to Persian Gulf, Warning Iran Against Possible Attacks

The United States flew two B-52 bombers over the Persian Gulf on Wednesday as a forewarning to Iran against any potential attacks against American or allied targets in the Middle East.

Additionally, the senior military official said there could be a “potential for other more complex attacks” against Americans in Iraq. “I think it is likely that the U.S. Embassy in Baghdad would be attacked again in some manner.”

He added, “We’re seeing planning for, particularly in Iraq for complex attacks that require Iranian assistance in order to be pulled off. It’s unclear to us, whether it’s contingency planning, or whether it’s a plan that is advancing because approval has been given and they’re just trying to get all the pieces in place and execute.”
