ISIS-K Suffering Massive Losses As President Trump Keeps Campaign Promise To “Wipe Them Out” • Now The End Begins

The U.S. military said it had degraded the number of Islamic State (ISIS/ISIL) fighters in Afghanistan by an estimated 80 percent to about 600 jihadists before dropping the largest non-nuclear bomb on the terrorist group on Thursday.

“As ISIS-K’s losses have mounted, they are using [improvised bombs], bunkers and tunnels to thicken their defense,” said Army Gen. John W. Nicholson, top commander of U.S. and NATO forces, after the U.S. strike on the jihadist group in Afghanistan.“This is the right munition to reduce these obstacles and maintain the momentum of our offensive against ISIS-K.”

The Pentagon confirmed that the U.S. military dropped the “mother of all bombs,” officially known as the GBU-43/B Massive Ordnance Air Blast, on an Islamic State tunnel complex in Achin district, located in eastern Afghanistan’s Nangarhar province, marking the first time the massive 21,600-pound bomb was used in battle.

U.S. military officials have identified eastern Afghanistan’s opium-rich Nangarhar province, located along the country’s border with Pakistan, as the group’s primary stronghold in the region.

ISIS officially established a branch in the Afghanistan-Pakistan region, dubbed the Khorasan Province (IS-KP/ISIS-K) in January 2015, less than a month after former President Barack Obama and NATO announced an end to their combat mission in Afghanistan.

The end of combat declaration came with a substantial reduction of coalition forces, allowing the number of ISIS-K fighters to reach 3,000 at its peak. Last October, Gen. John Nicholson, the top commander of U.S. and NATO forces in Afghanistan, warned that ISIS was intent on establishing a caliphate in the Afghanistan region.

Khorasan is an ancient name for a region that covers parts of Afghanistan, Pakistan, Iran, India, and other neighboring countries. From the Khorasan region, ISIS-K is also positioned to pose a threat to China, which shares a border with Afghanistan.

“Right now we see them very focused on trying to establish their caliphate, the Khorasan caliphate, inside Afghanistan,” Gen. Nicholson told NBC News.

However, the U.S. military recently said the group’s manpower has been diminished by an estimated 80 percent, to 600 jihadists. Most of the ISIS-K jihadists are former members of Pakistani Taliban, or Tehrik-e Taliban, and its Afghan counterpart, according to the Pentagon.

“Our goal in 2017 is to defeat ISIS-K in Afghanistan,” American Navy Capt. Bill Salvin, a top spokesman for the U.S./NATO-led coalition in Kabul, told Voice of American (VOA) at the end of last month.

“In 2016, we believed that year began with about 3,000 or so ISIS-K members in about 12 districts in southern Nangarhar,” added the captain. “Right now, we believe there are about 600 ISIS-K members in two or three districts in southern Nangarhar.”

The Trump administration has taken steps to combat ISIS-K that appear to be paying off.

President Trump has granted military commanders, including Gen. Nicholson, “broader latitude to act independently,” notes CNN.

Without explicitly saying whether he personally approved Thursday’s strike on ISIS in Afghanistan, Trump declared, “Everybody knows exactly what happens. So, what I do is I authorize our military.”

“We have given them total authorization and that’s what they’re doing,” he added, referring to U.S. commanders.

CNN learned that Gen. Nicholson signed off on the recent strike.

Adam Stump, a Pentagon spokesman, revealed that the authority to deploy to bomb was granted to Nicholson by Gen. Joseph Votel, the chief of U.S. Central Command. source

Barack Obama In Germany Will Shadow Trump As President To Attend First NATO Meeting In Brussels • Now The End Begins

The former president will be in Germany on 25 May, the same day his successor, Donald Trump, is due in Brussels for a meeting of Nato leaders, in what is expected to be the incumbent US president’s first foreign trip since taking office.

Barack Obama is to visit Berlin on his first trip to Europe since leaving office. The former president will be in Germany on 25 May, the same day his successor, Donald Trump, is due in Brussels for a meeting of NATO leaders, in what is expected to be the incumbent US president’s first foreign trip since taking office.

EDITOR’S NOTE: Far Left operative Barack Obama will be traveling to Germany at the exact same time President Trump will be in Brussels attending the NATO conference. Obama’s plan is to be nipping at Trump’s heels every step of the way deploying his shadow government shenanigans

Obama will travel to Germany for the launch of a summer of celebratory events organised by the Protestant church to mark its 500th anniversary.

Whether intentional or not, the simultaneous presence of both men on the same continent will serve to underline the difficulty many Europeans have had in dealing with the concept of Trump as US president, and the great deal of nostalgia that exists for the Obama era.

Obama is due to hold a speech in Berlin and to take part in a live discussion with the German chancellor, Angela Merkel, titled “Actively shaping democracy – taking responsibility at home and abroad”. They will talk on a purpose-built stage in front of Berlin’s most prominent landmark, the Brandenburg Gate.

Obama’s trip follows his acceptance of an invitation sent last May by the bishop of Bavaria Heinrich Bedford-Strohm. More details about the visit are due to be released at a press conference on Wednesday.

There is some irony in the decision to choose the Brandenburg Gate, which stands as a symbol of the cold war and how it was overcome, as the backdrop for the two politicians’ get-together.

In 2008 Merkel intervened to prevent Obama, then presidential candidate, from holding a speech at the 18th century neoclassical arch, saying she did not think it appropriate for him to use a nonpartisan symbol for electioneering purposes. In the end he was forced to hold his speech at the nearby Victory Column. It was attended by a 100,000-strong crowd and was considered one of the high points of his election campaign. He later got the opportunity to speak at the Brandenburg Gate as president in 2013.

This time round it is Merkel who is facing a tough election herself, in the coming September, and there will be many who see Merkel and Obama’s joint appearance as an attempt by him to endorse her chances of a fourth re-election.

Obama’s enjoys high popularity ratings in Germany, and his declaration during his outgoing visit as president to Berlin in November that “if I were German and I had a vote I’d support her,” carry considerable weight.

At the time of his remarks Merkel had not yet officially announced whether she would be running again. Obama added he did not know if his statement “helps or hurts”. source

Fake News Media Frenzy To Protect Susan Rice As Truth About Obama Shadow Government Implodes • Now The End Begins

Fake News Media in all-out-desperate attempt to shield Susan Rice and the Obama Shadow Government as frenzy surrounding leaks grows daily

CNN’s Don Lemon issued a call to all his views to “ignore the scandal” surrounding Susan Rice. The Washington Post calls it a “fake scandal ginned up by Trump”. Go to any of the other fake news outlets like the New York Times, MSNBC and others and you won’t even see the story being reported at all.

Dressed Like The Joker, A Defiant Hillary Clinton Takes The Stage Calling For ‘Resistance’ Of New Administration • Now The End Begins

 

 

A SPIRITED HILLARY CLINTON TOOK ON THE TRUMP ADMINISTRATION TUESDAY IN ONE OF HER FIRST PUBLIC SPEECHES SINCE SHE LOST THE PRESIDENTIAL ELECTION, CRITICIZING THE COUNTRY’S REPUBLICAN LEADERS ON EVERYTHING FROM HEALTH CARE TO THE SHORTAGE OF WOMEN APPOINTEES IN TOP ADMINISTRATION POSITIONS.

EDITOR’S NOTE: Is Hillary Clinton sending us a message with her choice of clothing? It’s hard to tell whether she sees herself as a dark Gotham anti-hero from Batman, or if she is planning on coming out and announcing she’s a lesbian. Either way the creepiness factor is rising rapidly. 

Cracking jokes about her November defeat and her months out of the limelight since, Clinton spoke to thousands of businesswomen in San Francisco, joking there was no place she’d rather be, “other than the White House.”

Without mentioning President Donald Trump by name, Clinton faulted the Republican presidential administration repeatedly, including calling its representation of women in top jobs “the lowest in a generation.”

Has FBI Director James Comey Achieved An Unhealthy Level Of Power In Washington? • Now The End Begins

ONE OF THE MOST IMPORTANT THINGS WE LEARNED MONDAY FROM THE HOUSE INTELLIGENCE COMMITTEE HEARINGS ON RUSSIAN INFLUENCE OF THE 2016 ELECTIONS WAS THAT THE HACKERS MAY HAVE WANTED TO GET CAUGHT. FBI DIRECTOR JAMES COMEY SAID RUSSIA’S CYBER INTRUDERS WERE “UNUSUALLY LOUD,” AS THOUGH THEY “WANTED US TO SEE WHAT THEY WERE DOING.”

That’s counterintuitive. The Russians have officially denied taking active measures in the 2016 election. They have complained that the toxic environment in Washington has scuttled any chance for a reset in the relationship with the U.S. So if Kremlin proxies were meddling in the U.S., why would they want us to know?

Comey says this is because the specter of Russian interference in and of itself instills doubt about our electoral process. It gets people to freak out. It calls into question the legitimacy of the election Donald Trump just won. It divides us.

If that was the mission, then: mission accomplished.

SHADOW GOV’T: Was Obama Involved In Pre-Planned Judicial Block Of President Trump’s New Travel Ban? • Now The End Begins

COINCIDENCES? OR DID BARACK OBAMA TRAVEL TO HAWAII TO INITIATE, FACILITATE, OR PARTICIPATE IN THE DECISION BY JUDGE WATSON?

EDITOR’S NOTE: These are the facts as we know them. Obama makes unexpected sudden trip to Hawaii to “visit friends” and “play golf”. After a series of both public and private meetings that took place over a 48 hour period, Hawaii’s US District Judge Derrick Watson issued a block of President Trump’s travel ban. Watson was appointed to the courts by Obama in 2012. My, my…what an AMAZING coincidence! Looks like the Obama Shadow Government is gaining ground.
