‘Never threaten the United States again!’ Trump tweet-warns Iran with what will happen if they want ‘to fight’

Twitchy - Sun, 05/19/2019 - 21:17

As tension and speculation increases about what will happen between Iran and the U.S., President Trump sent a warning to the nation via Twitter on Sunday afternoon.

If Iran wants to fight, that will be the official end of Iran. Never threaten the United States again!

— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) May 19, 2019

This is after former CIA director David Petraeus said on ABC’s “This Week” that he does not believe Trump wants to go to war with Iran but that Iran needs to be very careful in how it operates going forward.

Gen. David Petraeus, who led troops into battle during the 2003 U.S. invasion of Iraq, says he doesn't think Trump wants to start another war in the Middle East: "It’s pretty clear that he doesn't want to go to war with Iran. He’s not after regime change" https://t.co/nJtuvt95Dm pic.twitter.com/E6L3Iw355R

He says Trump is after “regime behavior change,” not “regime change.”

But Petraeus also warned Iran not to overplay their hand when dealing with an administration that has shown willingness to negotiate.

"Can [Iran] try some kind of proxy activities … They can, but they're going to be — have to be very careful not to overplay their hand," former CIA Director Gen. Petraeus tells @ABC's @MarthaRaddatz.

Students protest Pence during commencement address, walk out

Hot Air - Sun, 05/19/2019 - 21:01

It’s the season of commencement ceremonies and the unavoidable controversies provoked by invited speakers. Why would 2019 be any different than previous years? The students have opinions and they want you to know about them.

The latest commencement speaker to come under fire is Vice-President Mike Pence. Pence accepted an invitation to deliver a commencement address to the graduating class of Taylor University, a small private, interdenominational, evangelical Christian college in Upland, Indiana. Pence, remember, is the former Governor of Indiana so the invitation isn’t unusual on the face of it. It does seem a little unusual that a few dozen students (out of the total 494 graduates) got up and walked out in protest as he spoke.

Taylor University is one of America’s oldest evangelical Christian colleges. I assume it is not out of the ordinary that a commencement speaker would bring a religious component to the address, given it is a Christian school. Pence’s statement about Christian beliefs being under attack lately wasn’t out of the ordinary. He urged the students to stand up for their religious beliefs. The call to stand strong was very similar to the message Pence delivered to the graduates of Liberty University last weekend.

“Throughout most of our American history it’s been pretty easy to call yourself a Christian, but things are different now,” Pence said. “Lately, it’s become acceptable, even fashionable, to malign traditional Christian beliefs. So as you prepare to leave this place and build your life on a Christ-centered, world-engaging foundation poured here at Taylor University, be prepared to stand up.”

I have to think that the student protest of Pence’s address was an organized effort, planned well before Saturday’s ceremony. Online petitions circulated since Pence’s invitation was announced, both in favor and against that decision. Students in opposition voiced concern about Pence’s association with the Trump administration and of his conservative Christian beliefs. There was plenty of time for graduates to decorate their graduation caps with messages of protest.

Laura Rathburn was one of the dozens to walk out, disappointed that the school’s administration picked Pence to address her class. Rathburn decorated the top of her mortarboard in rainbow colors and added a message on top that said, “Ally Visible For Those Who Can’t Be.”

“I think his presence makes it difficult for everyone at Taylor to feel welcomed,” she said.

Graduates Katie Tupper and Anna Streed wore stickers on their mortarboards that said, “We are Taylor too,” which they said represented support for marginalized people hurt by the Trump administration’s policies.

“For me personally, I think we should identify as Christians first before we have political ties,” Tupper said. ”That might not be a good choice for everyone but I think that we struggle a lot at Taylor in trying not to raise our political views. … The purpose of this is to recognize that we’re all a part of Taylor.”

Fortunately for the others present, the protesters were somewhat respectful by simply rising and walking out. I haven’t read about any loud, vocal protesting or disruption to the ceremony. At the time of the walk-out, an associate music professor was leading the audience and graduates in singing a hymn.

Most of the students were appreciative of Pence’s presence. They gave him a standing ovation when he was introduced and clapped in response to parts of his speech. He spoke about the successes of the Trump administration, including a strong economy and positive employment news.

The day was exciting for graduate Emmanuel Boateng, who said it was exciting to have a vice president speak at graduation.

“Because of his position it’s a privilege to have him speak here,” said Boateng, who was born in Ghana and raised in Spain. “I know that on campus the emotions range from very positive to not very positive. No one dreams that way. But despite our differences, the whole entire campus has come to celebrate together.”

I can understand the students who didn’t want politics brought into the speech but that’s not realistic when the speaker is the Vice-President of the United States and already running for re-election with the president. Welcome to the real world, kids. Politics creep into absolutely every aspect of our lives. Frankly, if a college graduate can’t sit all the way through commencement remarks from a politician without leaving the room, that person is ill-prepared for life as an adult. The world doesn’t need more snowflakes so easily triggered. That quota is filled. Next Saturday Pence will address the graduating class of U.S. Army cadets at West Point, where I’m certain no one will walk out in protest.

There’s a t-shirt for that, too.

Muselman said he quickly sold out of T-shirts, which the students wore to chapel on May 3 and many said they plan to wear them a few more times before Pence's speech later this month. https://t.co/AB1EJPAocA #FoxNews

CNN's Brian Stelter: You Might Ask "What's The Point" Of WH Press Briefings If Sarah Sanders "Just Lies Anyway"

RealClear - Sun, 05/19/2019 - 20:45
During an interview with former Clinton White House press secretary Joe Lockhart, CNN's "Reliable Sources" host Brian Stelter said his audience might wonder "what's the point" of holding press briefings anymore because Press Secretary Sarah Sanders "just lies anyway." It has been more than two months since Sanders took to the podium. "This is an unprecedented drought, Stelter said. "69 days, more than 2 months, since Sarah Sanders last held an official press briefing. Sometimes, she does answer a few questions outside the White House after a hit on Fox, but she has stopped doing what used to be a big part of the press secretary's job." He added: "I think our viewers might be thinking, 'But Sarah Sanders just lies anyway, what's the point of a briefing?'" "Well, even if she just lies, she will lie on camera, and she will lie on tape, and you will have it for history and posterity," Lockhart said. "But also, the questions matter. The White House has been able to cancel, through canceling the briefings, just slide by on a lot of things." "For instance, the president tweeted this morning about the Republican congressman who basically called for his impeachment. Justin Amash, Basically saying if he read the report he would know this," Lockhart explained. "Well, no one has asked the president's press secretary if the president has read the report, and been able to go into questions, what does is he think about page 123." "So the questions do matter, and it does matter, and I think in a much broader sense, the briefing was a way for the public to stay engaged with the White House. It was a way for the people to, if they wanted to, tune in every day and say the White House has an answer for, not just what the president's doing, but what the entire administration is doing, and the rest of the administration is getting away with a lot of stuff that doesn't get surfaced because the briefings don't happen anymore," Lockhart added.

Embarrassing flip-flop on the crucial issue-of-the-day shows Elizabeth Warren can’t be trusted #GOTFinale

Here what she said just a few short weeks ago, via The Cut:

And as much as Dany wants to take on her family’s enemies and take back the Iron Throne, she knows that she must first fight the army of the dead that threatens all mankind. This is a revolutionary idea, in Westeros or anywhere else. A queen who declares that she doesn’t serve the interests of the rich and powerful? A ruler who doesn’t want to control the political system but to break the system as it is known? It’s no wonder that the people she meets in Westeros are skeptical. Skeptical, because they’ve seen another kind of woman on the Iron Throne: the villain we love to hate, Queen Cersei of Casterly Rock.

We’ll cover who actually wins the Throne in a few hours. Stay tuned. . .
