Report: Iran Has 10 Military Bases in Syria, Two Near Israeli Border, Training 20,000 Fighters


TEL AVIV – There are 10 Iranian military bases in Syria, two of which are close to the border with Israel, that are training militias from the Bashar al-Assad regime for a future war with the Jewish state, an analyst for an American think tank contended in an article published Monday.

As many as 20,000 fighters in Syria have been trained by Iranian military personnel, giving Iran its “true muscle” in Syria, according to the Monday report in the New York Times. About 6,000 of them are Hezbollah members, with the rest coming from Lebanon, Iraq, Afghanistan, Pakistan and other countries. Most of them view the conflict in religious terms, the report said.

For years, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has warned that Iran is seeking regional hegemony by entrenching itself in Syria, from where it can arm its Lebanese terror proxy Hezbollah and train other Shiite militias to fight against Israel.

In November, Israel released satellite photos of an Iranian military base only 30 miles from the border with Syria.

On Monday, Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif denied the presence of any military bases in the war-torn country.

At least two Iraqi militia leaders have visited the Lebanon-Israel border with Hezbollah recently, the Times said, with militia members saying the visits were intended to formulate plans for how they might collaborate in a future conflict.

The combatants have switched their focus from the Sunni Islamic State terror group to Israel, Ali Alfoneh, a researcher at the U.S.-based Atlantic Council told the Times.

“Iran has realized that it is actually possible to maintain a front against Israel where there is no war, but also no peace,” Alfoneh said.

Last week, in response to an incursion by an Iranian drone into Israeli airspace, Israel launched airstrikes on 12 Syrian and Iranian targets, including three air-defense batteries and four Iranian targets, one of them the control center that launched the drone.

On Sunday, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said, “Israel will not allow Iran’s regime to put a noose of terror around our neck” and added that his country would do everything to defend itself.

“We will act if necessary, not just against Iran’s proxies that are attacking us, but against Iran itself,” the prime minister said at the Munich Security Conference, which was also attended by Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif.

He also brandished a fragment of the downed Iranian drone and asked, “Mr. Zarif, do you recognize this? You should, it’s yours. You can take back with you a message to the tyrants of Tehran — do not test Israel’s resolve!”

Zarif later responded on the same stage, calling Netanyahu’s fiery speech a “cartoonish circus.”


Air Force Officer Who Witnessed Extortion 17 Attack SEALs Just Said We’ve All Been Lied To – Obama Has HELL To Pay

A highly decorated Air Force officer is breaking her silence about the disturbing incident that occurred back in 2011 that marked the deadliest attack on Navy SEALS in U.S. history. She claims that Obama’s administration covered up what happened to 38 of our warriors in Afghanistan, when a Chinook helicopter crashed and killed 38 fighters. She says had it not been for Obama changing the rules of engagement of our military to protect Muslim terrorists, that our men would still be alive today.

To give you a full appreciation for the absolute atrocity and borderline treason that went down that fateful day on August 6, 2011 at the hands of Barack Hussein Obama, Retired Air Force Capt. Joni Marquez is telling her story first hand. She and her crew were working the dark morning hours on their AC-130 gunship when they were summoned to conduct a mission she describes “as almost like a 9-1-1 type of a situation.”

Circa reported:

The gunship was ordered to fly close-in air support above Afghanistan’s dangerous Tangi Valley, in Wardak Province, assisting troops with the Army’s 75th Ranger Regiment who were being fired on by eight heavily armed Taliban insurgents.

The Rangers had called in for assault helicopters to engage the enemy hiding among the rocky valley. The air weapons team fired on the Taliban fighters, but not all of the insurgents were killed as originally believed.


In her first interview since the incident, Marquez recounts what she witnessed that night as she was the fire control officer aboard the ship. Her job that night was to ensure the sensors on the weapons were aligned, so that the her crew could hone in on the terrorists’ targets:

“I had the sensor operators immediately shift to the eight insurgents the helicopters had taken out,” Marquez told Circa. “Two were still alive.”

But what should’ve been a routine mission to take out the terrorists never happened because Obama’s generals would not give the gunship permission to fire. She relayed the scene to the ground force commander, but was denied permission to neutralize the threat.

“We had seen two of them (insurgents) moving, crawling away from the area, as to not really make a whole lot of scene. You have two enemy forces that are still alive,” she said. “Permission to engage.”

Marquez went on to say that the ground commander’s refusal to not allow her crew to take out the two terrorists with their weapons would then seal the fate of those involved in Extortion 17.

Now with no way to take out the threat, Marquez and her team were left with little options other than tracking the two enemy insurgents with the surveillance equipment. She watched helplessly as they made their way through an open field, then to a village where they began to rally more terrorists to join the fight. Circa went on:

Meanwhile, a CH-47 Chinook helicopter, with the call sign Extortion 17, was called into the hours-long firefight.

U.S. Central Command’s official investigation concluded that a rocket-launched grenade from a Taliban fighter hit the Chinook and sent the helicopter into a downward spin. The crash killed all 38, including thirty Americans and eight Afghans. Seventeen of the U.S. servicemen were Navy SEALs. Months before, SEALs were made famous for the killing of Osama bin Laden.

“If we would’ve been allowed to engage that night, we would’ve taken out those two men immediately,” Marquez said. She believes with her whole heart that had her team been given permission to take out the terrorists, 38 warriors would still be alive today.

“They continued to essentially gain more and more force behind them because they just kept knocking on doors,” she said. “And the two personnel that initially fled ended up becoming a group of 12 people.”

What’s even more insane is that pleas and warnings from her crew to return the Chinook back to base and cancel the mission before the terrorists began firing just fell on deaf ears by the commanders.

“Whenever we reached out to the Joint Operations Center, they would essentially just push back with, ‘Find a, a good infill location. Find a good helicopter landing zone,’” said Marquez, adding that by the time Extortion 17 was coming in, everything was mired in confusion.

From there, things just got even worse. The Chinook was eventually shot down by the terrorists and crashed to the ground. Marquez watched from her infared monitor as one of the Navy SEALS was then ejected from the burning Chinook helicopter. She watched his heat signature fade from red to blue, knowing that she was watching as his life literally slipped away from his body.

“We had to sit and watch that, and I think that was one of the hardest things that I had to do,” she said. “That man was, you know, dying on the ground.” Marquez says the pain of living with what happened has taken its toll and she was diagnosed with Post Traumatic Stress Disorder and is in therapy.

Her account of that fateful day has been corroborated by the Defense Department inspector general in a previously sealed top-secret report. Her own commander also has verified the story has true.

“If we would’ve been allowed to engage that night, we would’ve taken out those two men immediately. I mean, it’s just one of those things where you know that it could’ve all been prevented,” she said, tearing up at times as she recollected that night.

Thirty-eight of our warriors are dead and there is one single person to blame, and that is Barack Hussein Obama, the treasonous POS who sent these warriors straight to their deaths that night. It was because of HIS asinine updates to our military’s rules of engagement back in 2009 that essentially gave precedence to the lives of Muslim terrorists over our own military forces.

“Ridiculous rules of engagement that basically state that you can’t shoot until being shot upon.  A weapon has to be pointed, and essentially fired at you, in order for you to shoot and you have the proper clearance so that you don’t, you know, go to jail, that you’re charged with a war crime,” said Marquez, who had reached out to Congress, and some of the victims’ families.

In the end, Marquez hopes that people will share her story and help expose the truth of what happened that night in the hopes that changes will be made to our military’s rules of engagement that will save lives in the future.

Libs Are Furious Over Photo of Trump on Air Force One… Can You See Why?

Kirsters Baish| Last week was the one year anniversary of when President Trump creamed Hillary Clinton in the Presidential Election. Leftists were infuriated when President Trump decided to mark the special occasion with a photo he posted on social media.

Freedom Daily reported on the matter. They explained that President Trump celebrated the one year anniversary of his big win by thanking the “deplorables” who voted for him and made his “Electoral College landslide victory” a reality. Trump’s tweet read, “Congratulations to all of the ‘DEPLORABLES’ and the millions of people who gave us a MASSIVE (304-227) Electoral College landslide victory!” He also posted a photo of himself beside his top aides on Air Force One.

The aides in the photo alongside President Trump are White House Communications Director Hope Hicks, White House Senior Adviser Stephen Miller, White House Senior Adviser and son-in-law to President Trump Jared Kushner, President Trump’s Personal Aide and Special Assistant John McEntee, as well as White House Social Media Director Dan Scavino.

Our Commander in Chief spent time in China last week during his two week trip to Asia. He also paid visits to South Korea and Japan. Vietnam and the Philippines were on the agenda as well.

During his time in South Korea, President Trump was confronted by a Liberal reporter. She questioned Trump about the shooting that took place last week in a Sutherland Springs First Baptist church in Texas. Trump wasn’t taking the bait.

It was reported by Conservative 101 that this reporter decided not to focus on the important international issues that Trump was working on during this trip, like the big issues with North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un. Instead, she decided to shame President Trump and all First Amendment supporters. She asked if Trump was considering putting “extreme vetting” into place for anyone who wished to legally purchase a firearm.

Trump started out by explaining to this reporter that she was out of line by asking such a question, but he agreed to answer it if she insisted on going there. You know you’re bringing up a situation that probably shouldn’t be discussed too much right now — we could let a little time go by, Trump started. But it’s OK, if you feel that’s an appropriate question, even though we’re in the heart of South Korea, I will certainly answer your question.

He continued on to explain exactly why this Liberal reporter was wrong in her assessment of how to deal with the gun violence on America. He stated, If you did what you’re suggesting there would have been no difference three days ago, and you might not have had that very brave person who happened to have a gun or a rifle in his truck and shoot him, and hit him and neutralize him. I can only say this: If he didn’t have a gun, instead of having 26 dead, you would’ve had hundreds more dead. So that’s the way I feel about it. Not gonna help.

It was obvious that this young woman was embarrassed that President Trump proved her to be less than competent. Despite her embarrassment, she went on to ask President Trump if he was considering implementing “any kind of gun control policy going forward.”

President Trump wasted no time in shooting back, “When you look at the city with the strongest gun laws in our nation, is Chicago. And Chicago is a disaster. It’s a total disaster. Just remember, if this man didn’t have a gun or a rifle, you would be talking about a much worse situation in the great state of Texas.

Watch the exchange below:

Why can’t Liberals just let President Trump do his job? He won the election fair and square and the majority of Americans are on his side, so let’s give his policies a chance. After all, they can’t put us any further behind than Obama’s policies did.

House Intelligence Committee PROVED! – Fusion GPS Pleaded The 5th!

As we all saw what happened a few months ago when several black students brought the attention of the media when they reported alleged racial slurs from outside their dormitory at theAir Force Academy in Colorado.

In the wake of this race-baiting incident, collectively, more than 4,000 cadets have loudly denounced racial segregation or racism as the Air Force Academy Superintendent Lt. Gen. Jay Silveria gave a stunning speech that had more than a million YouTube previews.

Via The Conservative Tribune:

But it was another fake hate crime.
A black kid did it.

CNN admitted on Thursday the much reported Air Force hate crime was a hoax by a black student at the academy.

The CNN reporter said it was unfortunate: After a month-long investigation officials at the school now say it was all a hoax perpetrated by one of the black students… The speech still stands, the words ring true it’s just unfortunate to learn who wrote it.“

Apparently, they were upset they could not use the latest fake hate crime to attack white people.“

This is just another miserable attempt to produce hate amongst us, but, this time they have failed. And what is most interesting, they are starting to fail with every new attempt and they better start learning the feeling because they’re going to experience it more often than ever.

As for their little pawns, hate crime should be mandatory for a simple reason not to be too soft on these criminals who are trying to undermine our system, our President and our country.

Everyone must unite against their dirty tricks and show them that no matter the color, we are altogether going to vote for the President who care for our country and our people’s needs, unlike their dirty politicians who are only in for the money and power.

BREAKING: The Air Force Made A SICK Mistake That Could Have Stopped The Texas Shooting

Information about Texas church shooter Devin Kelley has continued to come to light over the past 24 hours, as authorities have uncovered more about the former airman and the circumstances surrounding the 2012 conviction that led to his discharge and confinement.

But new information released on Monday revealed that while Kelley should have been prohibited from purchasing or possessing firearms after a U.S. court martial granted his domestic violence conviction, the U.S. Air Force failed to communicate that information to the federal government.

Check it out, via Air Force spokesperson Ann Stefanek:


In light of this news, the Air Force has launched an official investigation into Kelley’s criminal record notification.

Kelley’s conviction specified that he was found guilty of pointing a loaded weapon at his wife, in addition to physically laying his hands on her and his minor step-son.

The new information poses a significant problem for gun control arguments, given this information would not necessarily have been available to someone conducting a background check on Kelley.

This revelation that the Air Force failed to communicate said information suggests the shootings could’ve been avoided if such an oversight had not occurred.

Melania Just Stepped Off Air Force One In Texas Today And Flipped Off All Her Haters With What She Did On Tarmac

It’s been just a little under a quarter way through the Presidency of Donald Trump, and he as well as his own family, pretty much have endured every kind of hateful criticism a President could imagine.

The latest critique was over an outfit especially, for high heel shoes, that the First Lady Melania Trump wore when they went to Texas after Hurricane Harvey’s destruction.

Liberals, Democrats, fake news media, anyone who hates our President are so desperate and grasping at straws, that they have to go after his family over attire during a visit to provide support to the people in the wake of a natural disaster.

During his first visit, President Trump and Melania visited the people and did their best to find out what the victims of this horrific hurricane needed. Even after all of that these liberal fascists went on to try to destroy the first family with their hate.

No matter what the first family did, it was not good enough, and all they could focus on was Melania’s attire. They struck out on election fraud claim, they struck out with the Russian collaboration, any string these Democrats can pull, they end up coming empty.

What was great about the 2nd arrival of the Trump family to Texas is, that Melania showed that she wasn’t phased at all from the hate she received. She wore what she felt was appropriate for the situation and didn’t care what the critics say.

Via the Daily Mail:

She was labeled out of touch and disrespectful by critics after traveling to Texas earlier this to tour flood zones in a pair of towering black stilettos.

But Melania Trump had a clear message for naysayers on Saturday as she made her second trip to the disaster-struck state – the high heels are here to stay.

Defiant as she emerged from the White House, the first lady strode confidently towards Marine One in her $1590 Ralph Lauren safari shirt dress and a pair of $650 Manolo Blahnik snakeskin pumps.

Clinging to her husband for some support as her stiletto point dug in to the grass on the South Lawn, she turned her back on a wave of criticism she received on Tuesday during her first visit to Harvey-hit regions.

As the hurricane continued beating rain down on Houston, swamping entire neighborhoods and leaving thousands clambering to their roofs to be rescued, Melania emerged from the White House on Tuesday morning in a black version of the heels she wore on Saturday, a bomber jacket and some oversized sunglasses.

Once they had landed in Texas, she changed in to a more appropriate outfit of pants, a white shirt and sneakers.

Her cap, which had FLOTUS stitched on the front, offended many given the grave circumstances in Houston where the bodies of victims floated through flood water and where the only way out was by boat or aircraft.

The high heels worn earlier in the day however dominated conversation about the president’s visit to the afflicted state and divided opinion.

‘Who wears high heels to a flood ravaged community?’ was one of the complaints before she changed into her shiny white sneakers.

There was a dose of fresh outrage on Saturday when she emerged in her second set of pumps.

‘Melania in heels again. Does she know it’s flood week and not fashion week in TX? Maybe she’ll emerge in her white sneakers again?’ said one deflated Twitter user.

Some said the outfit was even worse than her first attempt.

‘Melania in her heels & a dress this time. Trumps are a total fail at optics. A big FU to hurricane victims.’

Their complaints were in the minority, however.

Elsewhere, there was resounding approval for the look from her fans. Supporters praised Melania for not giving in to the flack and celebrated her as a ‘troll master and ‘bada**.’

‘FLOTUS Melania stayed true to herself & to HELL with the haters, as she boarded Air Force One in high heels! She’s a troll master! Love her!’

thers observed: ‘Melania is trolling with those heels’.

There was no sign of mischief from the first lady throughout the day. She was sincere as she gave out food to evacuees at the NRG Stadium and upbeat as she played with children.

Getting stuck in with her husband, the pair lugged cases of water on to the back of trucks and caravans which had lined up at a church in the neighborhood of Pearland later.

Online, she said nothing of the debate on her clothes but shared a photograph of her offending outfit from the morning, writing alongside it: ‘Departing for #Houston and #Louisiana #HurricaneHarvey.’

After Tuesday’s backlash, her spokeswoman Stephanie Grisham said: ‘It’s sad that we have an active and ongoing natural disaster in Texas, and people are worried about her shoes.’

It is sad because they are there with the people, even the President donated 1 million dollars of his own money to help the people who went through Harvey. What is worse was, where was the criticism of the Democrats like Hillary Clinton, Obama others who didn’t even show up? When Obama was President, when Louisiana had their disaster with the dams, he went golfing, but according to the left, what the President’s wife wore was more important to them and this shows their unhinged hatred for this family, and this needs to stop.

Share this if you love Melania & don’t care what she wears!
