TRUMP ADMINISTRATION DROPS MOTHER OF ALL BOMBS ON ISIS … NOW THIS IS A WAR ON TERROR!!!
As reported at FOX News, the U.S. military dropped its largest non-nuclear bomb on an ISIS tunnel complex in eastern Afghanistan on Thursday. The MOAB, a 30 feet long and 22,000 pounds Massive Ordinance Air Blast, or otherwise known as the “Mother of all Bombs” was let off the chain and deployed in the Nangarhar Province close to the Afghanistan/Pakistan border. During the presidential campaign, Donald Trump promised to “bomb the sh*t” out of ISIS. Looks like another promise kept and a sign to the world that the United States has a new sheriff in town.
Why does this so remind me of the scene from the movie Iron Man I where Tony Stark is doing Jericho Missile Test. Stark says, “is it better to be feared or respected?” He follows up by saying, “Is it asking to much for both?” Stark goes on to say, “They say, the best weapon is one you never have to fire. I, respectfully disagree. I prefer the one you only have to fire once … For your consideration, The
Jericho Mother of all Bombs!”
Yup, that’s how America and a strong President Does It!
The U.S. military dropped its largest non-nuclear bomb on an ISIS tunnel complex in eastern Afghanistan on Thursday, a U.S. defense official confirmed to Fox News.
The GBU-43B, a 21,000-pound conventional bomb, was deployed in Nangarhar Province close to the Afghanistan/Pakistan border. By comparison, each Tomahawk cruise missile launched at a Syrian military air base last week weighed 1,000 pounds each.
The Massive Ordinance Air Blast was first tested in 2003. (DOD)
The MOAB — Massive Ordnance Air Blast — is also known as the “Mother Of All Bombs.” It was first tested in 2003, but hadn’t been used in combat before Thursday.
Pentagon spokesman Adam Stump said the bomb had been brought to Afghanistan “some time ago” for potential use. The bomb explodes in the air, creating air pressure that can make tunnels and other structures collapse. It can be used at the start of an offensive to soften up the enemy, weakening both its infrastructure and morale.
Just a helpful hint to the liberal media and the LEFT, this bomb was used to more than just eradicate IRIS, it shows just what the US in now willing to do against threats to the United States.
MIGHTY BIG TALK FROM A NO TERM PRESIDENT …
Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders (S) said on Wednesday that he doesn’t believe President Donald Trump will win a second term as president. Really? Aren’t these the same people that said Donald Trump would never be elected? Also Bernie, its not like you will ever be elected president. Let’s get one thing straight folks, Bernie Sanders is not an Independent. Sanders is a socialist who ran on the Democrat ticket and nearly defeated Hillary Clinton to be the nominee for president of the Democrat Party. Don’t think the American people, and especially real independents, don’t see the fact that Democrats have obstructed the Trump administration at every turn and see thee liberal MSM playing their typical bias games and reporting. Sanders stated, “In terms of the first three months in office, Donald Trump is the least popular president in the history of polling.” Hmm, just a reminder to Sanders and the LEFT, wasn’t the polling wrong prior to Trump being elected president?
Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders (I) on Wednesday said he doesn’t believe President Trump will win a second term as president.
“In terms of the first three months in office, Donald Trump is the least popular president in the history of polling,” Sanders told The Associated Press while speaking in New York. “I do not believe that if Trump continues these policies that he’s going to be reelected. Nor do I think that the Republicans are going to do well in 2018.”
Sanders, who is planning to launch a cross-country tour with Democratic National Committee chair Tom Perez next week, said a more progressive movement is underway that will hurt Republicans’ electoral chances.
“The momentum right now is with the progressive movement in this country,” Sanders said. “And I think the Republicans are on the defensive and will be on the defensive increasingly.”
Sanders pointed to Tuesday’s special election in Kansas, in which the Republican candidate narrowly won the House seat vacated by now-CIA Director Mike Pompeo in a deep-red district that Trump won overwhelmingly.
Keep up your games liberals and once again you will find yourself in another losing election. You still do not understand the connection between Donald Trump and the voters. Frankly, it is kind of comical to see the LEFT acting in the same manner and thinking they will get different results. Wait, isn’t that the definition of crazy?
A WARNING TO THE MSM, BE VERY CAREFUL OF YOUR FAKE NEWS YOU SPEW …
As reported at Sky News, First lady Melania Trump has accepted damages and an apology over allegations stemming from a Daily Mail article previously published in the newspaper that “included false and defamatory claims” about her work as a model. The amount of damages was not disclosed in court, although it is estimated that the total payment of damages and costs is believed to come to less than $3m (£2.4m).
Melania Trump has accepted damages and an apology over allegations about her work as a professional model.
The action was against Associated Newspapers, publishers of the Daily Mail, after it ran an article headlined “Racy photos and troubling questions about his wife’s past that could derail Trump”.
The amount of damages was not disclosed in court, although Sky News understands the total payment of damages and costs is believed to come to less than $3m (£2.4m).
The article published in the newspaper and on Mail Online last August “included false and defamatory claims” about the First Lady “which questioned the nature of her work as a professional model, and republished allegations that she provided services beyond simply modelling”, the court heard.
The piece referred to rumors that a modelling agency Mrs Trump worked for in Milan was “something of a gentleman’s club” and another in New York “operated as an escort agency for wealthy clients”.
Her lawyer John Kelly said the story included statements that Mrs Trump denied the allegations and that Paulo Zampolli, who ran the modelling agency, also denied the claims.
The article, he said, also said there was no evidence to support the allegations.
FBI MONITORED FORMER TRUMP CAMPAIGN ADVISOR …
The revelation confirms for the first time that a federal surveillance warrant, known as a FISA warrant, was issued for a member of the Trump campaign as part of a federal investigation of potential ties between the Republican’s associates and the Russian government. Hmm, so now we do know that the Obama admin did in fact call for surveillance on Trump campaign team members, contrary to the denials.
The FBI obtained a warrant to monitor President Donald Trump’s former campaign adviser, Carter Page, last summer on suspicions he knowingly engaged in clandestine intelligence activities on behalf of Moscow, The Washington Post is reporting.
The FBI and Justice Department obtained a Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act warrant to monitor the communications of Page, who has called himself a junior member of Trump’s foreign policy advisory team, as part of their investigation into possible ties between Trump’s campaign and Russia, the newspaper says, citing unnamed law enforcement and other US officials.
The FBI and Justice Department obtained the warrant after convincing a FISA judge there was probable cause to believe Page was acting as an agent of a foreign government (Russia), the report says. The warrant presents the strongest information to date that the FBI had reason to believe a Trump adviser was in touch with Moscow and met with foreign operatives during Trump’s presidential campaign.
FBI Director James Comey has acknowledged that an investigation was opened last year into Russia’s efforts to influence the election and the question of whether the Trump campaign coordinated with the Kremlin. But Comey stopped short of naming anyone working for the campaign who may have been involved.
CNN is working to confirm The Washington Post’s story.
Page, however, called the FISA warrant “unjustified” in a statement to CNN’s Manu Raju.
So what was this really? I tend to go along with Hot Air’s premise that this was a back door method of surveiling Trump’s campaign team. If there had been anything, and I mean anything, wouldn’t we know at this point and a crime would have been charged? What we now know is that the Obana administration did surveil Trump’s campaign.
Actually, that’s not quite true. It’s evidence that the Department of Justice sought to surveil Trump campaign figures using intel resources, but not necessarily that they had real evidence and/or a legitimate “reason to believe” that Trump campaign officials were in touch with Russian agents. It’s extremely easy for the government to get approvals for FISA warrants, as we have discovered in the debates over renewals of Section 702 of the PATRIOT Act. That’s actually the crux of the issue: did certain Trump campaign officials knowingly collude with Russian intelligence — or did the Obama administration spy on political rivals in order to impact the election outcome? Both? Neither?
