Dozens of Iranian drones and speedboats swarming two US Navy ships near the Persian Gulf after Washington sent them in to deal with Iran's renewed threat against one of the world's most important waterways, dramatic new footage has revealed. Iran's navy sent the small vessels to confront the USS Bataan and the USS Carter Hall in the fraught Strait of Hormuz, which sits between the Persian Gulf and the Gulf of Oman, according to a video published on Saturday. The speedboats were manned with armed soldiers from Iran's Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) and came within inches of the ships, while drones also taunted the ships and

Not a threat. They were just going out to say thank you to Biden for giving Iran $6 billion to help fund their nuclear program.

Well, at least they didn’t surrender like they did during the 0bama reign of error. I don’t seem to remember this happening when Trump was in charge. My only question is why our guys didn’t sink the speedboats and take out the drones.

Shoot them. Hunt them from the waterways, then destroy their bases and fuel depots. Exterminate them. Dox them with Hellfire missiles. Make them fear to whisper the name, "America", because we might come back for them.

I hope some sailors mooned the Iranians and their little put-putts & toy drones. Hey Iran, remember Operation Praying Mantis, when we sank all your frigates and blew up two oil rig platforms your navy was using to coordinate attacks on oil tankers?

They should redirect the ship's sewage systems into trash bags...and then drop them on those little motorboats. They could even have plop cannons for close in work like this. That would be good for a laugh.

This is a BFD. The presence of the drones is an absolute hazard to any turbine powered aircraft. The prop blades may be able to handle a drone strike, but ingesting one into a jet turbine engine, especially a drone that is hardened to do maximum damage, is fatal. The Chinese are watching to see how the U.S. responds. According to knowledgable sources, we have no response. We are too busy cucking the Ukraine.

Anti-Trump Republican Presidential Candidate

Anti-Trump Republican presidential candidate Chris Christie is closely tied to the pharmaceutical industry he has repeatedly criticized on the campaign trail. Christie’s connections to large pharmaceutical companies are reflected in his current board seat with Pacira BioSciences — a manufacturer of opioid alternatives — and in his previous lobbying work for multinational pharmaceutical company Novo Nordisk through his consulting firm in 2020 and 2021. Christie’s consulting firm, Christie 55 Solutions, received $40,000 from Novo Nordisk in 2021 and $120,000 in 2020, according to nonpartisan watchdog group Open Secrets. Christie’s firm made $1.3 million from nine clients in 2020 and $180,000 from six clients the following year,

California Democrats Want to Give Unemployment

Democrats in California are preparing to propose the idea of extending unemployment benefits to workers who are on strike. Obviously, this is being motivated mainly by the Hollywood actors and writers who are on strike. Normally, benefits of this kind would only go to workers who have been let go by their employers. This is nothing more than Democrats trying to throw a lifeline to people who they know are part of their core voters. It’s also worth noting that California’s unemployment insurance program is already broke. FOX News reports: A group of California Democrats are expected to propose handing out unemployment benefits to striking workers.

The ten questions were designed to elicit an understanding of how each candidate would approach border security, immigration enforcement, and, perhaps most importantly, the economic impacts of migration policy. This immigration questionnaire is the first issue set in a series of policy-focused efforts Breitbart News will be conducting over the course of the 2024 primary.

Dick’s Sporting Goods Inc.’s stock tumbled 22% Tuesday, after the retailer’s second-quarter profit missed consensus by a wide margin, while sales also fell short., and the company squarely blamed theft for its woes. It was the company’s first earnings miss in three years. The last time Dick’s missed profit and sales consensus was in April of 2020, when it was reporting first-quarter earnings for that year. “While we posted another double-digit EBT margin, our Q2 profitability was short of our expectations due in large part to the impact of elevated inventory shrink, an increasingly serious issue impacting many retailers,” said CEO Lauren Hobart in a statement.

In what could be described as the worst-kept secret in politics, former President Donald Trump has decided he will not participate in the Republican presidential debates. He cited his commanding double-digit lead in Republican primary polls as the main reason for not participating. It would be the second presidential election cycle in which Trump broke tradition and skipped a debate. However, while the Trump campaign may think it’s a shrewd political maneuver, it’s actually self-destructive insofar as it establishes a precedent for President Joe Biden to skip debating Trump (assuming he is the GOP nominee) in the general election.
