Never-Trumper Max Boot Attempts to Taunt Trump Into Going to War With Iran in WaPo Op-Ed



Neocon Never-Trumper Max Boot had an opinion piece published in Sunday’s edition of the Washington Post attempting to goad Donald Trump into going to war with Iran — a move that would completely contradict the president’s ‘America First’ policy platform and alienate a significant portion of his base.

The war fanatic wrote that President Donald Trump needs to “put up or shut up” when it comes to Iran.

“This is part of a pattern with Trump, who roars like a tiger but usually acts like a scaredy-cat,” the has-been wrote. “This is the same president, after all, who has repeatedly threatened to close the border with Mexico or slap it with prohibitive tariffs unless it ended illegal immigration — and never once made good on his threats.”

The warmongering didn’t stop with Iran, the self-important writer also dropped some good old fashioned McCarthyism into the mix.

“What has been on display is not prudence and discretion but indecision and chaos. The message that will go out to enemy capitals is, in fact, that the president is weak. Russian state TV is already mocking Trump for his stand-down with Iran,” Boot continued.

Boot, knowing that Neocon nonsense is no longer popular even among many of the most hawkish Republicans, claimed that he doesn’t want to go to war — he simply wants Trump to make good on his threats. Or something.

“Trump needs to either put up or shut up. But he won’t do either. He continues to run his mouth — or, more accurately, his Twitter account — without making good on his threats. This is the worst of all worlds,” Boot wrote.

It is important to note that Boot was a member of the Project for the New American Century (PNAC), a group founded by another Never-Trump loser, Bill Kristol. The organization has been widely credited as being architects of the Iraq War.

Prior to the fateful terror attacks of September 11, PNAC had laid out a manifesto dreaming up wars all across the Middle East. Their plans had seemingly no regard for human lives, including those of our troops. They laid out plots for regime change in endless places including Lebanon, Egypt, Pakistan, Saudi Arabia, Iraq and of course, Iran. The group was so intense that they even advocated biological warfare, writing on page sixty of their “Rebuilding America’s Defenses” policy platform that “advanced forms of biological warfare that can target specific genotypes may transform biological warfare from the realm of terror to a politically useful tool.”

Along with Boot and Kristol, President Trump’s hawkish Foreign Policy Adviser John Bolton was also a member.

During the George W. Bush administration, Bolton was made the Undersecretary for Arms Control, which regrettably put him in the position of the go-to guy for anything relating to weapons of mass destruction. In case you can’t see where this is going, he was the one most brazenly pushing the false information about Iraq’s arsenal of WMDs, misleading the nation into war.

Since joining the current administration, Bolton has used nearly every cable television appearance to advocate for attacking North Korea or Iran, or pushing for regime change in Venezuela.

Trump recently made the decision to resist the swamp dwelling warmongers that infest DC and opt not to deploy a strike that would have killed 150 people over an unmanned drone. The move was widely celebrated and praised by not only his base, but many independents and people in the anti-war left. Those who wish to see chaos and destruction across the globe are in the minority now, and thankfully, for now at least, the president doesn’t seem to be a fan either.

According to recent reports, Fox News populist Tucker Carlson was one of the people who helped Trump make a decision not to bomb Iran. The anti-intervention cable TV favorite has been an outspoken critic of the Neocons in the administration, particularly Bolton.

On Friday, Carlson blasted Bolton’s penchant for war and referred to him as a “bureaucratic tapeworm.”

“According to John Bolton, [Iraq’s] a raging success. We killed hundreds of thousands of people, lost thousands of our own troops, spent more than $1 trillion all to eliminate a WMD threat that despite John Bolton’s assurances, never existed in the first place,” said Carlson. “Bolton is glad we did all that. Really happy about it. That’s demented. Normal people don’t talk about that. There’s nothing normal about John Bolton,” concluded Carlson.

So, to sum this all up — tough luck, Boot. Nobody is buying the crap you, Bolton and “the ghost of John McCain” are selling. Hopefully it stays that way.

    Dear Max,

    The Army is looking for a few good men. Perhaps you would care to put your money where your mouth is?

    Neocons also support Open Borders for America and Europe but not their favorite country.

High School Football Players Suspended for Carrying Thin Blue, Thin Red Line Flags Before 9/11 Game



High School football players in Florida have been suspended from their team for carrying Thin Blue Line and Thin Red Line flags during their football game on 9/11 to honor the first responders who died during the attack on the World Trade Center.

One of the young men on the Little Miami High School football team is the son of a police officer, another, the son of a firefighter.

“Were you trying to make some kind of a political statement here?” a Local 12 reporter asked Brady Williams, a senior cornerback, who carried the Thin Blue Line flag.

“No,” he answered quickly. “Not at all. I was just doing it to honor the people that lost their lives 19 years ago.”

Jarad Bentley, whose father is a firefighter, carried the Thin Red Line flag.

“I was all for it,” he said. “Because my dad is a firefighter, and if it had been him killed on 9/11, I would have wanted someone to do it for him.”

The young men had asked the school for permission to carry the flags on to the field before the game, and the school refused. They were told that if they did, there would be consequences.

Still, the boys did it anyways.

“Listen,” Williams said. “I don’t care what my consequences are. So long as my message gets across, I’ll be happy.”

Local 12 reports that “Williams and Bentley heard from the athletic director Monday afternoon and received an indefinite suspension.” The station said that they had called the superintendent about the boys a few hours prior.

Superintendent Gregory Power claimed that they denied the boys’ request because they don’t want to “set a precedent” for “political” flags being carried out on the field.

“We did not want to place ourselves in a circumstance where another family might want a different flag to come out of the tunnel, one that may be [one that] many other families may not agree with from a political perspective,” Power claimed.

DC Police Helicopter Hit With Lasers By Rioters Forced to Make Emergency Landing — Crew Member Hospitalized

One of the crew members had to be hospitalized due to vision loss in one eye.



A DC Metropolitan Police helicopter had to make an emergency landing on Saturday night as it was hit by laser pointers shined at it by rioters.

A law enforcement source tells the District Herald that one of the crew members had to be hospitalized due to vision loss in one eye.

Rioters were also shining the blinding lasers in the eyes of officers on the ground.

In July, it was revealed that federal officers in Portland may have been permanently blinded by the lasers, that are becoming increasingly common at the riots.

“When officers responded to put out these fires, glass bottles were thrown and lasers – which can cause permanent blindness – were shined in their eyes,” Federal Protective Service (FPS) Deputy Director of Operations Richard Cline said at a press conference at the time. “We have three officers who currently have eye injuries and they may not recover sight in those eyes from those laser attacks.”

There were multiple helicopters circling throughout the area all evening to keep track of the rioters.

Rioters from all over the nation, including many familiar faces from the Portland riots, have been causing chaos throughout the city for several days.

The riot escalated when the militants began to throw bricks at police officers.

Earlier in the evening, a speaker in the newly named “Black Lives Matter Plaza” asserted that “I’m at the point where I’m going to put the police in a f*cking grave. I’m at the point where I want to burn the f*cking White House down!”

There were multiple arrests for assaulting police officers, but it seems as though rioters are being quickly caught and released the next day by the US Attorney’s Office.

The riot in DC is currently ongoing and the District Herald will be continuing to provide updates as the situation progresses.

BREAKING: Member of Patriot Prayer Fatally Shot in Portland

The rioters also attacked the founder of Patriot Prayer, Joey Gibson.



A member of the Pro-Trump organization Patriot Prayer has been shot and killed in Portland amidst the riots.

Early reports on social media had claimed that a black male was shot by a “Trump supporter,” but that was not the case.

The victim was a white male who was reportedly wearing a hat with the Patriot Prayer insignia on it.

“A Patriot with camouflage gear with infidel and thin blue line patches, was shot and killed during pro-Trump car caravan through downtown Portland at around 8:45pm,” independent reporter Andrew Duncomb tweeted.

“Just heard that the man killed is affiliated with my group. Just had drinks with him last Saturday,” Duncomb added.

Speaking to the District Herald, Duncomb said that “all I got to say right now is he was a good Patriot and this news has hit my group of friends pretty hard. It’s time for Trump to hear our cries and clean up Portland. We will not let them kill us anymore.”

Duncomb added, “shame on Ted Wheeler and Kate Brown. His blood is on their hands. They allowed this violence to happen for over three months. How many people need to die before the elected officials will do their job to protect its citizens?”

Following the fatal shooting, rioters also surrounded and assaulted Patriot Prayer founder Joey Gibson. When Gibson retreated into a gas station, rioters broke the windows and threatened the owner.

The shooting victim’s name has not yet been released, though it is known, to allow time for the family to be notified.

Duncomb, clearly outraged, tweeted a call for patriotic Americans to come to Portland on September 19 to stand against the rioters.

The situation in Portland is ongoing. The District Herald will be providing updates as they become available.
