On May 20, 2019, the ARGENTUM POST published an article titled “Impeach Trump, Elect Bernie Sanders, or Tulsi Gabbard, or Bill de Blasio, for the Presidency, and other Democratic Genuine Progressives and Declare Victory as “We the People” Deserve It To Heal and Reconstruct.” The said article exposed how mendaciously the obscene, unholy hegemonic and […]
by Rick Sterling Global Research edited by O Society May 21, 2019 An honest and accurate analysis of the 2016 election is not just an academic exercise. It is very relevant to the current election campaign. Yet over the past two years, Russiagate has dominated media and political debate and largely replaced a serious analysis […]
US vs. THEM The Burning Platform “I’ll show you politics in America. Here it is, right here. “I think the puppet on the right shares my beliefs.” “I think the puppet on the left is more to my liking.” “Hey, wait a minute, there’s one guy holding out both puppets!”” – Bill Hicks Anyone who […]

Rep. Mark Green, R, Tenn., said he hopes to hear more information detailing the “credible threats” from Iran discussed by the Trump administration.
Calling Iran “probably one of the clearest enemies America has had in a long time,” during a Tuesday interview on “America’s Newsroom,” Green said he trusted the president’s decision to warn of potential action being taken against alleged threats from Iran, although Congress admittedly has not been given much information about specifics.
“They are an enemy and I doubt that the president would put out there is credible evidence if it wasn’t credible,” Green said.
“When you talk about credible evidence, that means multiple sources, that means different types of Intel, whether it’s human or satellite or something like that,” he continued. “We’ll hopefully hear the evidence that supports the title of credible Intel.”
The president has repeatedly defended the legitimacy of threats from Iran but asserted that he “hopes” the escalating tensions will not lead to war. Despite seeking to avoid violent conflict, Trump tweeted Sunday: “If Iran wants to fight, that will be the official end of Iran. Never threaten the United States again!”
Last week, it was reported that non-emergency personnel at the U.S. embassy in Iraq were ordered to leave the country after Iran-backed missiles were allegedly aimed at American bases.
Green said that the president will need to present concrete evidence of the supposed threats from Iran to gain the support of his colleagues on both sides of the aisle.
“What the administration has to do is clearly show the Congress what the threats are. From my understanding it was threats against American forces in the region,” he continued.
Several Democrats, including veterans Rep. Chrissy Houlahan, D, Pa, and 2020 Democratic presidential hopeful Tulsi Gabbard, have warned against escalating tensions with Iran more than necessary. Houlahan said it was crucial that America “be the adult in the room,” and Gabbard argued that a war with Iran would make the Iraq war “look like a cake walk.”
Green said he hopes that Democrats will be able to accept credible evidence if it is presented.
“There will always be individuals that are impossible to convince and it will be the same party of the people that cut $400 million in cash to Iran a few years ago,” he said.
“The level heads will hopefully seek credible evidence and support what the president is doing.”

Kyle Jaeger from Marijuana Moment Four 2020 Democratic presidential candidates have signed onto new legislation to federally deschedule marijuana—while a handful of other White House hopefuls are notably missing as original cosponsors. The companion bills introduced on Monday by Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) and Rep. Hakeem Jeffries (D-NY) would remove cannabis from the […]
Mark your calendars. This moment hasn’t happened often and may never happen again: I, a progressive and a staunch opponent of President Trump’s agenda including his approach to foreign policy, actually think the president should ignore his advisers and trust his gut. It is being reported that Trump is frustrated with his advisers, including the warhawk and […]
I am not a naive teenager to believe that US oligarchy and national security-warfare state really cares about the “will of the people”, law or the fate of people who actually made America great at some point of time. It is all bunk and words such as “democracy”, “electoral process” or “rule of law” when […]
So far Tulsi Gabbard is the most interesting of the candidates. I do not know much about her or her politics, so I was very interested in hearing what she had to say. I love Joe Rogan‘s podcast. He has interesting people on his show all the time.
Is there anything cornier than a political cartoon? Unlikely. Political cartoons are the sort of things that uncle you never speak to “fwds” you over e-mail or plasters on his facebook page. At most, they repackage already cliched talking points with some unnecessary visual aids, usually of the explicitly racist variety. They’re the even less […]
Democratic presidential candidate Rep. Tulsi Gabbard characterized a recent critical report about her campaign as "fake news," invoking a defense oft-used by President Trump. The congresswoman did not specify what in the article was "fake." https://t.co/Xidx1PMcjH — CNN (@CNN) May 21, 2019
