1/7 - PEACE PROCESS AND IRAN

Peace process:

Interesting, and I might add alarming, timing on these two news stories:

JAN 6: Berkowitz meets Netanyahu over potential Trump peace plan roll out

JAN 6: 'Prepare Your Coffins': Iranians Flood Ivanka and Melania Trump's Instagram Profiles With Threats

JAN 5: Iranian Puts $80M Bounty on Trump’s Head for Soleimani Hit

JAN 6: ‘We’ll Do It For Half’: George Lopez Responds To Iran Bounty On Trump With A Threat Of His Own

GG: Most likely civil war here in the U.S. will begin if someone like Lopez, or countless other celebrities who have called for President Trump's death (like Johnny Depp), actually carry out that threat and kill him, then I think all hope is lost of any civility.

BTW: According to Behind the Name website, Lopez means "son of wolf," and Depp is German for "joker."

Puerto Rico earthquake:

Koenig is noting the timing of this significant PR earthquake and puts it with the link about the peace process at his website.

Very strong and shallow M6.4 earthquake hits Puerto Rico -- power outages, widespread damage reported

Iran:

What little there was of the U.S.-Iran relationship is in utter meltdown.

Gen. Keane on Soleimani's death: Ayatollah Khamenei 'personally shook,' did not expect this from Trump
GG note: Did Khamenei think Trump is like Obama? We know Obama (A) would never have cared enough about the deaths of Americans (think Benghazi) to retaliate, and (B) he nixed plans for Soleimani's death once before:

Obama Administration Stopped Israel From Assassinating Soleimani in 2015

The Iran nuclear deal is over:

Since President Obama did not set his Iran nuclear deal on sure footing, it was doomed.

Dems mourn for Soleimani:

As many are noting, the Dems are in mourning over Soleimani, and NOT over the U.S. soldiers and Americans Soleimani killed:

FLASHBACK: Obama Launched 2,800 Strikes On Iraq, Syria Without Congressional Approval

FLASHBACK, OCT 2015: Obama drone strike on Afghanistan hospital kills 12 doctors and 10 patients
GG note: I will point out the obvious -- NO outrage from Dems when this happened.  Are they saying one Soleimani was worth more than these 22 victims?)
