http://freebeacon.com/national-security/report-iranian-navy-chases-after-u-s-warships/An Iranian naval fleet chased a U.S. warship and military planes through the waters off the southern coast of Yemen late Monday in yet another provocative encounter between the two nations, according to Iranian state media reports.* NORMALLY I WOULD PAY NO MIND TO A REPORT LIKE THIS... BUT... OBAMA IS COMMANDER-IN-CHIEF...A U.S. warship and several planes reportedly “changed their direction” on Monday after encountering an Iranian naval fleet during a patrol in the Gulf of Aden near Yemen, Iranian state media revealed.* IS THERE INDEPENDENT CONFIRMATION...???Iran also released video of the incident.* HAS THE VIDEO BEEN VERIFIED; IS IT IN PROPER CONTEXT?The run-in between the United States and Iranian militaries is just the latest in several tense confrontations between the countries near Yemen, where Iran is believed to be smuggling weapons to opposition forces. The United States moved military assets in the region in a bid to stop Iran from moving weapons into Yemen. * AND... HAVE WE BEEN SUCCESSFUL...?Iranian media now claims that the Islamic Republic’s naval fleets chased after two U.S. reconnaissance planes and a Navy destroyer.Two “U.S. reconnaissance planes named P3C [Papa 3 Charlie] and U.S. Navy destroyer, DDG81, approached several Iranian warships in a provocative move, ignoring the internationally set five-mile standard distance from Iran’s 34th fleet of warships deployed in the Gulf of Aden,” Fars reported on Tuesday.“The U.S. Navy vessel and planes then received a warning from Iranian Destroyer ‘Alborz,’ and rapidly changed direction,” the report claimed.* ARE WE DENYING THIS HAPPENED? (DID IT HAPPEN...?!?!)A State Department official did not immediately respond to a request for comment about Monday’s reported encounter.* NOT GOOD...Saeed Ghasseminejad, an Iran expert at the Foundation for Defense of Democracies (FDD), said Iran has only been emboldened by ongoing nuclear negotiations with the United States. “Iran’s armed forces, especially the IRGC, have been the main beneficiary of the temporary nuclear agreement,” he said. “The Obama administration has given them billions of dollars and a green light to dominate the region. Iran is using the money it receives to expand its missile program, to build new nuclear infrastructures, and to fund the Quds Force’s operations.”* AGAIN... THIS IS THE OBAMA ADMINISTRATION... (*PURSED LIPS*)“The truth is that in order to convince Iran to sign the nuclear agreement United States is literally bribing and strengthening the most radical and dangerous faction in Iran,” he said.* IS... THIS... TRUE...???
* TWO-PARTER... (Part 1 of 2)http://www.judicialwatch.org/press-room/press-releases/judicial-watch-dhs-records-detail-mexican-government-helicopter-crossing-border-and-firing-on-border-patrol/Judicial Watch announced today that it obtained documents from the U.S. Customs and Border Patrol (CBP) that confirm a June 26, 2014, attack by a Mexican government helicopter on U.S. Border Patrol agents. * ATTACK IS A BIT STRONG - AS YOU'LL SEE. (KEEP READING!)The Mexican helicopter crossed into U.S. airspace before firing on U.S. Border Patrol personnel. * BUT APPARENTLY NOT ON PURPOSE; OR AT THE VERY LEAST IT'S UNCLEAR. (KEEP READING!)The Mexican government initially denied that the attack near Arizona’s San Miguel Gate occurred, but later admitted to the armed incursion.The CBP documents were released in response to a July 9, 2014, Judicial Watch Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request to CBP seeking any and all records regarding, concerning or related to the June 26, 2014 incident near Sells, AZ on the Tohono O’Odham Indian Reservation during which one or more Mexican military helicopters reportedly entered U.S. airspace and fired shots in the vicinity of U.S. Border Patrol personnel.The CBP records include a description of the record (memo, email, etc.) author, recipients, date of record, etc. The document title notes:[US Border Patrol] Agents from the Tucson Sector Foreign Operations Branch were parked approximately 100 yards north of the Border on the U.S. side when they observed a Mexican LEA helicopter cross north into the U.S. for approximately 100 yards. The agents then heard and observed two rounds being shot from the helicopter which landed approximately 15 yards to the side of one of the unmarked Border Patrol Vehicles (FOB) they were driving. * UNMARKED...Also, there were two marked vehicles at the scene next to the unmarked as well.* BUT THE VEHICLE IN QUESTION WAS UNMARKED...A total of six Mexican law enforcement helicopters flying near the Represito Ranch were observed by the four agents. Two agents were driving two marked Border Patrol vehicles and two additional agents were in a third, unmarked vehicle when one of the helicopters flew directly north and crossed into the U.S. approximately 100 yards. The helicopter immediately turned back south into Mexico and landed at the Represito Ranch where Government of Mexico (GOM) officers exited the aircraft. Five GOM officers walked north and approached the International Border Fence where the incident had occurred, and subsequently made contact with the agents. The GOM officers apologized for the incident and stated that the incident had been reported to their main office in Mexico City, D.F.* SEE WHAT I MEAN...? SOUNDS LIKE AN HONEST SCREW-UP TO ME. (IF IT WASN'T... WHY TAKE RESPONSIBILITY... WHY SHOW THEIR FACES?)The information obtained by Judicial Watch revealing that “GOM officers … stated that the incident had been reported to their main office in Mexico City” directly conflicts with the initial response from the Mexican government. According to the New York Daily News Tomás Zerón, the director of the Mexican attorney general’s office investigative office, said that Mexican military and federal police who were conducting an operation on a ranch in Altar, Sonora, were shot at by criminals. Mexican authorities never fired any weapons and in fact never crossed into the U.S. side of the border, he said.* I'M SURE THE MEXICAN POLITICIANS KNOWINGLY LIED! HELL... OURS CERTAIN DO - ALL THE TIME! BUT MY FOCUS IS ON THE ACTUAL GOM LAW ENFORCEMENT PERSONNEL. THEY SCREWED UP... AND THEY IMMEDIATELY SOUGHT TO RECTIFY (VIA ADMITTING TO) THE OFFENSE.* TO BE CONTINUED...
* CONCLUDING... (Part 2 of 2)Going back a decade, Judicial Watch has forced both the Bush and Obama administrations to release documents detailing intentional border incursions by Mexican military and other government personnel. DHS records show that Mexican military incursions occur quite often and go unpunished by the U.S. * AND WHO DO I BLAME...? BUSH AND OBAMA! BUSH ALLOWED IT! OBAMA ALLOWS IT!For instance, the DHS documents reveal 226 incursions by Mexican government personnel into the U.S. between 1996 and 2005. In 2007 alone, 25 such incursions occurred along the U.S.-Mexico border involving Mexican military and/or law enforcement. The problem has only gotten worse over the years, according to the records obtained in the course of JW’s ongoing investigations. Earlier this year a serious incursion occurred in Arizona. Two heavily armed camouflaged soldiers from Mexico crossed 50 yards over the border into Arizona and held American Border Patrol agents at gunpoint in a tense confrontation.* BUT THOSE AMERICAN BORDER AGENTS LIVED - UNLIKE OTHERS WHO HAVE BEEN AS MUCH THE VICTIMS OF U.S. POLICY (BUSH... OBAMA... ERIC HOLDER'S "FAST AND FURIOUS" CLUSTER-F--K...)According to information obtained by California Congressman Duncan Hunter from the Department of Homeland Security, there have been 300 documented incursions by Mexican military and law enforcement authorities onto U.S. soil since 2004. Hunter reported on June 17, 2014, that, according to the DHS there have been a total of 300 documented incursions since January 1, 2004; of the 300 documented incidents, there were 152 incidents involving armed subjects (totaling approximately 525 subjects); of the 152 incidents involving armed subjects, verbal or physical contact was made with the armed subjects in 81 incidents (approximately 322 armed subjects in total). (An "encounter" with one of these Mexican Government Law Enforcement or Military entities does not always equal a standoff or confrontation. It depends on a case-by-case basis where one would have to read the narrative completed on the Significant Incident Report for the specific incursion.)“It is clear that the Mexican government has little regard for the sovereignty of the United States,” said Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton. “Our border is insecure and the Mexican government has contempt for our sovereignty. Its military and law enforcement personnel intentionally and without consequence cross our border and place U.S. law enforcement and other innocent Americans at risk. ... America is placed at risk by the Obama administration’s lawless open-borders policy that purposefully fails to protect American citizens and front-line law enforcement from a corrupt Mexican government, the drug cartels, the illegal alien crisis, ISIS and the Islamic terrorist threat.”* ALL THAT IS INDEED TRUE.(*PURSED LIPS*)
http://www.freep.com/story/news/local/michigan/wayne/2015/05/01/assistant-prosecutor-resigns-facebook-post/26709361/An assistant Wayne County (Detroit, MI) prosecutor resigned today amid controversy over her Facebook post that suggested shooting people engaged in violence against Baltimore police.* AND... WHAT'S THE PROBLEM WITH THAT COMMON-SENSE SUGGESTION...???Teana Walsh called Wayne County Prosecutor Kym Worthy this afternoon to announce her resignation, and Worthy accepted it, according to a written statement issued by the prosecutor's office.(*SADLY SHAKING MY HEAD*)According to Fox 2, Walsh posted this message earlier this week then took it down:"So I am watching the news in Baltimore and see large swarms of people throwing bricks, etc., at police who are fleeing from their assaults... 15 in hospital already. Solution. Simple. Shoot 'em. Period. End of discussion. I don't care what causes the protesters to turn violent. ... what the 'they did it because' reason is ... no way is this acceptable. Flipping disgusting."* WHAT'S THE PROBLEM...?!?! SHE'S EXACTLY RIGHT! (MY ONLY CRITIQUE IS THAT SHE TOOK THE POST DOWN!)The Free Press could not reach Walsh for comment.Her post circulated on the Internet and quickly resulted in backlash from some in the community.* "THE COMMUNITY."(*ROLLING MY EYES*)(*SPITTING ON THE GROUND*)A spokeswoman for the Wayne County Prosecutor's Office described Walsh's time with the prosecutor's office in the release announcing her voluntary resignation. "During her tenure in the office, Teana Walsh has been known for her great work ethic and her compassion for victims of crime and their families. Her post was up on line briefly and she immediately took it down," the statement provided by Maria Miller said. "The post was completely out of character for her and certainly does not reflect the person that we know."* "OUT OF CHARACTER...?" NO! THE POST SHOWED CHARACTER!
