(Drudge) IRAN FAILS TO SEIZE BRIT OIL TANKER (The Sun) A British Royal Navy frigate trained its 30mm deck guns on Iranian elite Revolutionary Guard boats trying to storm a Brit tanker and demand it change course into Iranian waters as it passed through the Strait of Hormuz in the Persian Gulf, forcing them to back off! A US official said: "The Royal Navy HMS Montrose...pointed its guns at the boats and warned them over radio, at which point they dispersed." Another official added: "It was harassment and an attempt to interfere with the passage." A US aircraft was flying overhead at the time and recorded footage of the standoff. Initial reports from the US said that five Iranian vessels had harassed the tanker.
The attempted capture comes just days after British Royal Marines seized an Iranian crude oil supertanker off Gibraltar. Commandos dramatically detained the Grace 1 tanker over suspicions it was carrying oil to its ally Syria in violation of EU sanctions last week. Iranian President Hassan Rouhani warned on Wednesday that the UK will suffer "consequences" for its actions. He said: "I tell the British that they are the initiator of insecurity and you will understand its consequences later." And Iran's Major General Mohammad Bagheri warned it "will not go unanswered." A deputy commander of Iran's elite Revolutionary Guards today said: "The American government, and also England, should not have taken action if they had made the smallest calculation."
Tehran's foreign minister Mohammad Jawad Zarif appeared to deny the Islamic Republic's boats were being confrontational. He said: "They make a claim to create a tension that these claims are not worthwhile, and raised many claims." Zarif also said "England" was attempting to "cover their weakness " while blasting America for engaging in "economic terrorism" referring to the sanctions imposed on Tehran by Washington.
(Drudge) Tehran threatens to sink US ships, destroy army bases… (Daily Star) Iranian commander Hossein Nejat said: "American bases are within the range of our missiles. Our missiles will destroy their aircraft carriers if they make a mistake. Americans are very well aware of the consequences of a military confrontation with Iran.” Previously, Iran warning the US it faces a "sea of blood" in the Gulf. Over the weekend, Iranian cleric Mohammad Ali Movahedi-Kermani said: "Think of an attack only if you want to change the color of the Persian Gulf waters from azure to red.” And he repeated warnings that Iran is ready to abandon all constraints on its nuclear programme imposed by the West. Imam Movahedi-Kermani also challenged Trump saying he “saw the corpses of US troops before your eyes” before calling of his strike. He also threatened to blow up Israel’s nuclear reactor in Negev.
(Drudge) STORM WEEKEND… (Weather.com) The National Hurricane Center issued advisories Wednesday morning about a Tropical Storm Barry and possibly Hurricane Barry lashing the northern Gulf Coast into this weekend, with major flooding and high winds in parts of Louisiana, Mississippi and Alabama. (AP) The flooded Missississpi river brings LEVEE DANGER to NEW ORLEANS… which got 8-inches (20 cm) of rain in just three hours! (Accuweather) An EarthCam posted in the French Quarter captured video of the city's iconic Bourbon Street under water… (NOLA.com) Experts warn that wading — and especially swimming — through a flood could expose people to a 'Toxic' stew… of waste and chemicals. One video on social media showed someone swimming through several feet of water near Canal Street. "That is crazy," said Tiong Aw, a public health microbiologist at Tulane University. "It can be dangerous and can make humans susceptible to infectious diseases and injuries." Another guy warned: “human and livestock waste can get into the floodwater, which can be toxic to humans.” (Weather.com) Evacuations… were ordered in Louisiana.

(Drudge) POLL: Public less tolerant of same-sex relations for first time since AIDS crisis… Maybe it’s all the Muslims and immigrants. (The Guardian) Thirty years of increasingly liberal attitudes towards gay sex may be coming to an end after the number of people who said they considered it wrong rose for the first time since the Aids crisis. In 1987 when every household received sombre leaflets warning “don’t die of ignorance”, nine out of 10 people thought there was something wrong with sexual relations between two adults of the same sex. AMAZING! Today it’s only a third of people are opposed in some way. Amazingly, people from non-Christian religious groups the most likely to disapprove. Over the last decade the number of people identifying as religious fell from 68% to 47%, the survey found, although the percentage identifying as Muslim doubled from 3% to 6% and non-denominational Christians, a category which includes Pentecostalists, rose from 10% to 13%.
(Drudge) POLL: Abortion support highest in two decades as challenges mount… (Stamford Advocate via Wash. Post) A Washington Post-ABC News poll finds a 60 percent majority who say abortion should be legal in most or all cases, up from 55 percent in a 2013 Post-ABC poll, and tying the record high level of support from 1995. The latest survey finds 36 percent say abortion should be illegal in all or most cases, also tying a record low. Support for abortion increased in part due to large growth in support among so-called independent women voters (up 16 points to 71 percent) and Democrats (up 12 points to 77 percent).
(Drudge) NYC Proposes 'Modern Jails'; More 'Welcoming' Experience… (WSJ) New York City Officials Propose Designs for ‘Modern Jails.’ Plan to close Rikers Island moves into next phase of approval process. The four jails that New York City wants to build to replace its Rikers Island facility will have cells with natural sunlight, space for programming and a children’s play area, officials said Wednesday. During a public hearing on Wednesday, city officials presented design highlights of the four proposed jails to the City Planning Commission as part of the next phase of the project’s approval process. The new jails, which would be built in Manhattan, Queens, Brooklyn and the Bronx, are part of a larger plan by Mayor Bill de Blasio to screw things up.
(Drudge) VIDEO: Hillary dances cares away with Huma at Earth, Wind & Fire concert… (The American Mirror) The failed candidate was at the Beacon Theatre in New York City Tuesday night to take in a show by the aging rockers. A shot from the balcony shows Clinton clapping and grooving along. Abedin appears to be to Hillary’s left. Bill Clinton is nowhere to be seen. (Clinton’s performance on Tuesday was more reserved than when she was in South Africa in 2012, dancing with the blacks, when she was in better shape. “The secretary of state has moves,” CBS host Gayle King opined at that time.)
(Drudge) Deportation raids Sunday? (The Hill) Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) agents will launch massive raids on Sunday targeting “undocumented immigrants” (AKA illegal aliens) scheduled for deportation, The New York Times reported early Thursday, in an operation that President Trump delayed weeks ago. The ICE action had been set to take place in 10 major cities and target up to 2,000 immigrants, according to multiple reports. According to the Times, officials will try to hold detained family members at centers in Texas and Pennsylvania, adding that ICE wants to deport families as quickly as possible.
“Due to law-enforcement sensitivities,” a spokesperson for ICE declined to comment, but any illegal may be deported “if found removable by final order.”
Trump said in late June that he was delaying raids to give Congress time to pass new restrictions on asylum laws, which Democrats controlling the House oppose. Trump said the raids would begin after the July 4 holiday.

(Drudge) Tommy Robinson jailed for nine months… over contempt of court! (Daily Star) Robinson, real name Stephen Yaxley-Lennon, was found in contempt last week for filming defendants in a criminal trial and broadcasting the footage on social media. He was previously jailed for sharing the video, taken outside Leeds Crown Court in May 2018. He’d filmed himself, defendants involved in the trial and commented on the particulars of the case during the hour-and-a-half long video. Robinson was imprisoned again today during sentencing at The Old Bailey. Dame Victoria Sharp told him: "We are in no doubt that the custody threshold is crossed in this case, in particular having regard to the common law contempt that the respondent committed. "Nothing less than a custodial penalty would properly reflect the gravity of the conduct we have identified."
The verdict prompted chaos outside, with supporters recorded hurling missiles and riot police descending on the scene. The time Robinson previously spent behind bars will be taken into account, reducing his sentence to 19 weeks – of which he will serve half before being released. His Telegram account said: "Sentenced to prison for journalism. Time for protests to start, this is an absolute joke!" Earlier this week, Robinson begged for political asylum from US President Donald Trump after his conviction. He said: "I feel like I'm two days away from being sentenced to death in the UK. "I beg Donald Trump, I beg the American government, to look at my case. I need evacuation from this country because dark forces are at work. "This is a direct appeal on behalf of my family - we love the United States, I have no future here [in the UK]." And RUSSIA had voiced support for Free Speech!
(Drudge) Britain's special relationship with America in tatters as ambassador quits… Kim Darroch had trashed President Trump behind his back in secret memos to London, and he resigned after they leaked. Brexit has failed. Prime Minister Theresa May who’s resigned or resigning because she failed to make Brexit happen, she’d praised Darroch. Other British politicians voiced support for Darroch’s professionalism. (Seems like a beta male country that hates real men and hates free speech to me, elects Muslim mayors.)
Disdain for President Runs Among Diplomats… One current anonymous beta ambassador said 'It Could Have Been Any of Us'... (NY Times via MSN) The freshly retired French ambassador to the US says he wrote the same stuff! And everyone does, he claims. He knew that nothing remained secret so he sent them in the most confidential manner.
(Drudge) Most Vets Say Iraq, Afghanistan Wars Weren't Worth It… (Military.com) A majority of veterans taking part in a Pew research study says that the cost and burden of the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan outweigh any successes or progress made in either conflict. 64% -- or almost two-thirds -- of veterans polled in a new survey said the Iraq war "was not worth fighting," and 58% said the same about the war in Afghanistan. There's a growing negative outlook for the conflict in Syria as well: 55% of veterans polled were pessimistic about the campaign. Only 36% of the general public said U.S. efforts in Syria have been "worthwhile." "Views do not differ based on rank or combat experience," the researchers said.
BUT: Republican-leaning veterans "are much more likely than veterans who identify with or lean toward the Democratic Party to say the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan were worth fighting: 45% of Republican veterans vs. 15% of Democratic veterans say the war in Iraq was worth fighting, while 46% of Republican veterans and 26% of Democratic veterans say the same about Afghanistan." The same was true for the non-veteran population.

A little white history: Photos of me five years ago July 4, 2014, with my niece, a white baby! I have newer photos too… but I’m hesitant to show her because some people are psycho.
White History: George Whitefield
One of you sent me a video on George Whitefield by Museum of the Bible channel.
He was an actor-turned-preacher, big in the First Great Awakening from UK to the American colonies. He died in 1770 (6 years before the Declaration of Independence) at age 55. He was cross-eyed which people thought meant he was favored by God, according to Wikipedia. He was associated with John Wesley and others, a Calvinist, whatever that means. (I think it means that God chooses you, not the other way around, but dunno.)
His sermons were published and distributed in the colonies by Benjamin Franklin who was more skeptical of religion or something. But Ben Franklin was impressed by his ability to speak. Whitefield talked to crowds of 10 to 20 thousand! He could be heard at 500 feet, which is like 166 yards or something! George Whitefield told Ben Franklin the Bible verse John 3:3, “Unless one is born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God.” That’s a quote from Jesus to Nicodemus the Pharisee, I believe, who came to visit him at night in secret.
He wanted Georgia to re-legalize slavery for his orphanage, without which he couldn’t have afforded to run the place. But he urged slaveowners to be good toward their slaves. He criticized some slaveowners for treating their dogs with affection, but not their slaves. He left 50 slaves to someone when he died. I believe John Wesley spoke against slavery.
He was honored by a slave after his death in a poem dedicated to him, mourning his passing, written by a young slave woman Phillis Wheatley, born in west Africa, who was taught by her so-called “progressive” slavemasters to read and write. She lived to the age of 31. She married a free black man who I think died, she had kids die, and she became poor after being freed, unable to publish a second poetry book.
A Slave Thanks God for Slavery?
One poem by Phillis Wheatley on slavery is "On being brought from Africa to America":
Twas mercy brought me from my Pagan land,
Taught my benighted soul to understand
That there's a God, that there's a Saviour too:
Once I redemption neither sought nor knew.
Some view our sable race with scornful eye,
"Their colour is a diabolic dye."
Remember, Christians, Negroes, black as Cain,
May be refin'd, and join th' angelic train.
So Jesse Lee Peterson is not the first black to thank God for slavery! Well, she doesn’t mention slavery, but is glad to be in America, a Christian nation, as opposed to her “Pagan land.” She did describe slavery negatively at another point. But she was glad to be a Christian.
A YouTube Comment on 'Telling the Truth'
I used to “tell the truth” and you still might catch me doing it. But Jesse’s right, we don’t have truth. So I’ve gone around repeating Jesse before, or other people who make a lot of sense to me, looking down on others who don’t see it! SMH, and I knew it was wrong because I was too embarrassed to admit to Jesse I was imitating him to others! I remember Jesse said if you’re angry, that’s not the truth. And that’s true, truth is spirit, God holds the truth. Us getting all self-righteous, may spew “facts” but no love, no genuineness. People see through that.
