Sen. Sanders vows to 'prevent' Trump, Bolton from waging war with Iran

"Right now, this minute, I am doing everything that I can -- working, by the way, with some honest conservatives in the Senate -- to prevent Donald Trump and John Bolton from taking us into a war in Iran," he declared during a speech on Saturday at his first political rally in his home state of Vermont since announcing his presidential bid in February. The veteran senator further emphasized that he regards a US war with Iran “much more destructive, if you can believe it, than the war in Iraq,” adding that it “could lead us, literally, to perpetual warfare in that region." Attacking the hawkish US president and his reckless political rhetoric, Sanders also said, "Sadly, we have a president who is a pathological liar and that he says whatever he wants without regard to the truth." "You know that we have a president who has no understanding or respect for the Constitution of the United States, and the separation of powers, and is attempting to move -- every single day -- this country into an authoritarian form of government,” he stressed. Trump ‘most dangerous’ US president in modern history In an interview with NBC News last month Sanders had also described Trump as "the most dangerous president in the modern history of this country." Sanders went on to underline that he was launching his campaign “with confidence, optimism and love,” adding that he refused to allow for the nation to be led by "greed, hatred and lies.” “The underlying principles of our government will not be racism, will not be sexism, will not be xenophobia and will not be religious bigotry – and all the other mean-spirited beliefs of the Trump administration," the senator emphasized, pledging: "The principles of our government will be based on justice: economic justice, racial justice, social justice, and environmental justice.” ‘Trump has so wantonly lied and misconstrued the facts’ Another 2020 US presidential hopeful, Democratic Congressman Robert “Beto” O’Rourke of Texas also denounced Trump’s recent deployment of hundreds of troops to the Middle East, accusing him of lying and misconstruing facts in what Washington claims to be "Iran's threat." In an interview on Saturday with CBS News ‘Face the Nation’ program that will be aired on Sunday, the lawmaker pointed to Trump’s senior aides -- including Bolton, who has a reputation for a hawkish stance against Iran – saying that the White House risked sending the US to war over "misconstrued facts." "I have a really hard time believing this administration and believing a- a president who has so wantonly lied and misconstrued the facts at every single turn to his own gain. I'm- I'm suspicious of a national security team that has so often called for war," O'Rourke emphasized. "You have someone in- in-- Bolton, who has publicly said that he wants regime change in Iran," he further underlined, warning that a war with the country would leave hundreds of thousands dead. The congressman went on to stress that Trump’s decision to send troops to the region to counter a supposed threat from Iran would only provoke conflict and draw the US into war. "President Trump is escalating tensions, is provoking yet another war in the Middle East where we find ourselves already engaged in war in so many countries- in Iraq in Syria in Yemen, not too far from there in Libya and in Afghanistan," O’Rourke warned. "[W]e don't need another war. We need to find a way to work with allies and partners and in some cases with our enemies." Sen. Paul urges Trump not to listen to ‘neocons’ O’Rourke’s remarks echoed those of Kentucky Republican Senator Rand Paul who called on the US president to reconsider his announcement on Friday while urging Trump not to listen to "neocons" close to him in a clear reference to Bolton and Secretary of State Mike Pompeo. “This escalation doesn’t get us out of our decades long, seemingly endless wars Mr. President. Trust your instincts and follow what you ran on, not the neocons around who want to repeat past mistakes,” Paul tweeted. ‘We learned nothing from the experience in Iraq’ Yet another Democratic presidential hopeful Pete Buttigieg -- a former naval intelligence officer, Afghanistan war veteran and current Mayor of South Bend, Indian – also blasted Trump during a Friday campaign event in New Hampshire. Buttigieg further insisted that Trump “now seems to be setting us on a course that could lead to violent confrontation,” according to US-based Fox News. He later told reporters that “I’m very worried because we have steps towards confrontation in Iran that almost make it seem as though we learned nothing from the experience in Iraq.” Tehran has time and again asserted that it is not seeking war, yet stands ready to defend its interests in the region amid the US military buildup in the MIddle East.

Islamic Channels are Fading out | Save Them

Islamic Channels are Fading out | Save Them

Islamic Channels are Fading out | Save ThemDonate here: Gofundme: https://www.gofundme.com/rationalbeliever Paypal: https://www.paypal.com/cgi-bin/webscr?cmd=_s-xclick&hosted_button_id=EN79XRUF35QWL **************************************************************************************************************************************** As'salamu Alaikum Wa Rahmatullahi Wa Barakatuh, Dear viewers! As some of you are aware, it’s a couple of months that YouTube has updated its policies by setting the algorithms so that it targets Islamic content and channels. They removed so many Islamic channels from their partner program while almost none of those channels violated any of their policies. With this they try to fade out the Islamic Dawah. Same thing happened to our channel too… It is the third time that our channel is being targeted by YouTube. First they have banned a video worldwide for couple of hours, then they deleted a video with the claim that it violated their terms and conditions while it wasn’t the case... and recently they have demonetized our channel (the only source that could cover a part of our production costs) again by claiming that our content is violating their terms and conditions while in reality we have never promote violence, or produce inappropriate content. It seems like they want to demotivate us so that we stop producing Islamic contents. But by the will of Allah (swt) that will never happen! Indeed production of a professional content needs huge costs and time. A lot of efforts (e.g. providing topics, doing research, providing footage, making narration, recording, graphics, editing & etc...) goes into making only one video. And we alone are not capable of covering the whole costs since we have no more financial source. Therefore we ask you to join and take part in our dawah mission and support our channel in order to continue with even more amazing contents and to help us educate people around the world about the beautiful religion (ISLAM) and make them come closer to Allah (swt). Currently we are unable to create any patreon page due to some problems. But you can donate to the below gofundme and paypal links: For those brothers/sisters who have problem with the donation campaigns for Islamic channels: Just know that Allah is enough for them, it’s about your responsibility for your religion. They didn’t make these channels to make money out of them, for sure if they were looking for money, they would choose some other ways which would make way more money for them. But they chose to serve for their religion. They all try their best and have their own way of presenting the message of Islam… they face huge problems while making those contents which help you and your children. Be with them Support them to spread the truth And be the cause for guidance of masses In Sha Allah In sha Allah your donation will be counted as (Sadaqah Jaariyah) and will get continues rewards since these contents will reach to millions of viewers by the passage of time. If you can't support us financially, please make Dua for us. Jazzak Allahu Khairan, Rational Believer
