Trump confirms U.S. has killed ISIS leader—’He died like a dog’
United States President Donald Trump has just confirmed during a White House press statement that Baghdadi died from a suicide vest detonation, taking the lives of three children with him.
“Last night, the United States brought the world’s number one terrorist leader to justice,” Trump began. “Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi is dead. He was the founder and leader of ISIS, the most ruthless and violent terror organization anywhere in the world.”
Conservative Party Leader Andrew Scheer blamed “Iranian Regime alone” for the downing of a Ukrainian passenger flight 752 Tuesday, only one day after Prime Minister Justin Trudeau put blame on increased tensions.
Scheer’s tweets revealed that Trudeau briefed Scheer on the situation with the downed flight. “We must always remember the Iranian Regime’s actions that led to this horrible atrocity,” the tweet reads.
Scheer then goes on to give a call to action to the Trudeau Liberals to proceed as follows:
1. Immediately implement the Conservative motion passed by Parliament in 2018 to list Iran’s Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) as a terrorist organization.
2. Demand Iran compensate all victims of the crash, repatriate their remains, and hold the perpetrators of this atrocity accountable.
3. Be prepared to impose Magnitsky Sanctions on Iran if they don’t fully cooperate with the international investigation.”
Scheer calls the demands an “appropriate response” that would move to help the families of victims. “The Iranian Regime can not get a free pass after killing 57 Canadians.”
Iran has begun investigating the incident, as two Canadian Transportation Safety Board investigators make way to the region, with two more on the way. The crew will be sent to analyze black box data.
A staffer for the Democrat presidential candidate, Bernie Sanders, was videoed appearing to advocate for street violence in a video recorded by Project Veritas.
The Post Millennial‘s Andy Ngo has also revealed that Jurek was arrested last week in Iowa and charged with drunk driving and possession of drug paraphernalia.
In the video, Sander’s Field organizer, Kyle Jurek, says that he wants to “throw down” (meaning to fight In hipster) with “the billionaire class, the f**king media, pundits … walk into MSNBC studios, drag those motherf**kers out by their hair and light them on fire in the street.”
The staffer went on to say in another video that “f**king Milwaukee will burn” if Sander’s didn’t receive the nomination or if the competition were to go to the second round. “I’ll start in Milwaukee … and when the police push back on that other cities will just [explosion sound], Jurek added.
When the investigative journalist asked whether Trump supporters could be “ed-educated” Jurek began to compare Republicans to Nazi supporters: “In Nazi Germany, after the fall of the Nazi party, there was a s**t-ton of the populace that was f**king nazi-fied. Germany had to spend billions of dollars re-educating their f**king people to not be Nazis … we’re probably going to have to do the same f**king thing.”
Other Bernie staffers have called Jurek a “top-tier organizer,” however, the campaign has since attempted to erase all online connections with the man.
Canada’s corporate and media elites are more supportive of the Iranian regime than the Iranian people.
We are seeing that as the inescapable conclusion of recent events, which have revealed to us a stunning contrast in how the Iranian people and Western elites have responded.
Remember how the CBC first started the blame-America messaging shortly after the Iranian regime finally admitted to shooting down a plane with 57 Canadian citizens onboard?
That was increasingly echoed by much of the establishment media, despite a clear consensus among Canadians that the Iranian regime bore the responsibility.
And then, Maple Leaf Foods CEO Michael McCain bizarrely used the company’s corporate Twitter account to Tweet out a series of messages that echo the propaganda line of the Iranian regime:
“I’m Michael McCain, CEO of Maple Leaf Foods, and these are personal reflections. I am very angry, and time isn’t making me less angry. A MLF colleague of mine lost his wife and family this week to a needless, irresponsible series of events in Iran…”
“…U.S. government leaders unconstrained by checks/balances, concocted an ill-conceived plan to divert focus from political woes. The world knows Iran is a dangerous state, but the world found a path to contain it; not perfect but by most accounts it was the right direction…”
“..A narcissist in Washington tears world accomplishments apart; destabilizes region. US now unwelcomed everywhere in the area including Iraq; tensions escalated to feverish pitch. Taking out despicable military leader terrorist? There are a hundred like him, standing next in line”
“…The collateral damage of this irresponsible, dangerous, ill-conceived behavior? 63 Canadians needlessly lost their lives in the crossfire, including the family of one of my MLF colleagues (his wife + 11 year old son)! We are mourning and I am livid. Michael McCain.”
In all of his remarks, McCain fails to mention that Iran shot down the plane.
He also fails to mention that events didn’t magically start with the U.S. strike on Soleimani. As we all know, Iran had violated repeated U.S. red-lines, including attacking U.S. personnel in the region and attacking the U.S. Embassy. Considering that the U.S. is a close ally of Canada, it makes sense that Canadians would be supportive of the U.S. responding to attacks on their people, rather than condemning the U.S. for responding.
Of course, the big issue with what McCain said is that he is saying things very similar to the official Iranian regime propaganda line.
The Iranian regime has repeatedly said that the U.S. is to blame for “escalating,” while ignoring Iran’s initial escalation against the US and violation of US red-lines.
Additionally, McCain’s comments fail to recognize the nature of the regime in Iran, which regularly spreads state-sponsored lies in order to advance their narrative and influence people in the West, while butchering protesters, executing gay people, oppressing women, threatening to destroy Israel, and sponsoring terrorism around the world.
There is simply no moral equivalence between the democratically-elected U.S. government, and the un-elected ruthless Iranian regime.
Amazingly, McCain’s position is far more similar to the Iranian regime propaganda line than the Iranian people themselves. Iranians have been protesting in droves, and they’re not blaming the U.S. Instead, the blame is being put solely where it belongs, on the same Iranian regime that has regularly shown contempt for the lives of the Iranian people.
That contempt can be seen and felt clearly, as the Iranian regime shoots live ammunition at grieving protesters in the street.
And if that isn’t enough, consider that even members of Iran’s official State Propaganda machine are quitting, unable to stomach all the lies.
One TV news anchor, Gelare Jabbari, quit and apologized for pushing the initial regime denial of responsibility:
“Iran State TV’s anchor resigns saying, “It was very hard for me to believe the killing of my countrymen. I apologize for lying to you on TV for 13 years.”
So, what we’re now seeing and hearing is the Iranian people condemning their regime and holding their regime responsible for shooting down the plane, while corporate elites like Michael McCain blame our closest ally–and the leader of the free world–and barely even mention Iran at all.
What an upside-down world we’re living in…
Prime Minister Justin Trudeau stated that the Canadians killed by an Iranian missile causing the downing of a passenger flight would still be alive if it weren’t for building tensions in Iran.
“If there were no tensions, if there was no escalation recently in the region, those Canadians would be right now home with their families,” said Trudeau in his interview with Dawna Friesen.
“This is something that happens when you have conflict and war. Innocents bear the brunt of it and it is a reminder why all of us need to work so hard on de-escalation, moving forward to reduce tensions and find a pathway that doesn’t involve further conflict and killing.”
Many have been displeased by Trudeau’s failure directly blame the Iranian regime. “There are a half-million Syrians who’d join you in calling for a “de-escalation of tensions in the region” but they’re dead & their killers are still on the loose, still killing innocent Syrians, Iranians & Iraqis, every day. What you’re saying, @JustinTrudeau, is ‘war is peace,'” journalist Terry Glavin tweeted.
Trudeau’s comments come days before a London meeting hosted by Canada wherein members of the international Coordination and Response Group will prepare a plan for getting answers regarding black box data from the flights.
Prime Minister Trudeau recently did not rule out assigning blame to the Trump administration for the Flight 752 tragedy.
Trudeau was asked by Reuters journalist, “Given the tensions in the area that were the cause of a drone strike by the United States, do you think the United States is at least partially responsible for this tragedy?”
Trudeau responded without ruling out.“I think it is too soon to be drawing conclusions of assigning responsibility, whatever proportions. Right now, our focus is on supporting the families who are grieving across the country and provide what answers we can in a preliminary way, and recognizing that there is going to need to be a full and credible investigation into what exactly happened before we draw conclusions.”
