HOUSTON — In an exclusive leak, Union City Post uncovered an insidious plan by the United States Air Force. By combining female pheromones with warfare, the Air Force planned to drop giant gay bombs upon our enemies, transforming them into raging homosexuals.
WASHINGTON–On Saturday, Iran announced a travel ban on all U.S. citizens, according to Reuters. Only one year since the historic Iran Nuclear Deal was implemented, relations between Washington and Tehran seem to be unexpectedly souring.
“While respecting the American people…Iran will implement [a travel ban on all American citizens],” a statement from the Iranian foreign ministry said. Iranian president Hassan Rouhani has stated that actions taken by newly-inaugurated American president Trump are a “gift to extremists,” signifying a significant Iranian realignment back to extreme anti-Americanism.
Seen by many Americans as an act of war, Rouhani’s decision to ban all travel comes at a very critical point in relations between the United States and Iran.
On Tuesday morning, Iran-backed Houthi rebels attacked a Saudi warship off of the coast of Yemen. Reports confirm that the rebels were yelling “Death to America, death to Israel” while firing missiles at the Saudi ship. According to this coalition, three suicide vessels were also involved with the attack on this ship.
On Monday, the Iranian military conducted a ballistic missile test. According to United States officials, this was a clear violation of a resolution passed by the United Nations soon after the Iran Nuclear Deal was approved. Per U.N. resolution 2231, Iran was very clearly not allowed to conduct these nuclear tests.
The future of Washington-Tehran relations looks bleak, and with the hardline stance taken by president Trump combined with the increasing extremism and acts of war from Rouhani, the United States may be looking at a serious conflict in the middle east very soon.
WASHINGTON — Recent tensions between POTUS and NATO leaders has led to a proposal of withdrawal by American president Trump. Trump, threatening to drop out due to the most NATO members not spending the agreed 2% GDP on defense, has faced opposition from across the Atlantic. Angela Merkel, Prime Minister of Germany, issued a statement condemning Trump’s proposal to withdraw:
This will result in a less secure, and less safe Europe. It is unacceptable for America to actually make us pay for our own defense. Who do you think we are? I call for President Trump to reconsider this proposal, as Europeans simply cannot afford a military. Without America, Europe is a goner. Please, President Trump, reconsider this.
Putin has expressed serious interest in American politics for the past few months, and, in an email sent to Trump, claimed that the two administrations would unite under a “golden shower” of success.
SEATTLE — Local officials were shocked to see an innocent Christmas tree maimed by a barbaric atheist yesterday evening.
WARNING: DISTASTEFUL IMAGERY BELOW
The Seattle District Attorney is launching an investigation and will press charges against the perpetrator. Meanwhile, friends and family of Mr. Tree mourn their loss.
BOSTON — The Massachusetts Institute of Technology recently prototyped a new machine that may quickly become the next big thing among youngsters today. The lead developer, Martin Colfer, created the first appliance that helps those of us who continue to waste oxygen finally quit the habit. Dubbed the “Unbreather”, the device consists of nylon fiber wound into a circle, called the “noose”, paired with a metal cylinder, called a “bucket”, that goes underneath the nylon piece. The user places their neck inside the fiber section, gets on the metal cylinder, and then kicks the bucket.
College sophomore Ashley Reefs is excited about the development, noting:
I’ve been shopping wide and far to finally end my miserable little life, and the good fellows at MIT might just have solved my problems once and for all. You see, I’m SICK of those darned scientists and engineers constantly developing new machinery that only extends my life. They never stop for a moment and ask if I wanted to end it short. Now, I can. I know what I’ll be getting myself this Christmas!
Reefs plans on purchasing at least 3 more Unbreathers before the year ends. She hopes to impress her friends with such thoughtful gifts. The developers at MIT note that this is a fabulous celebratory gift for anyone at anytime.
Unbreathers go on sale in May 2017, with an MSRP of $69.99
The US intelligence community has launched an investigation into Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, focusing on the Senator’s ties to Russian government officials.
The US intelligence community has launched an investigation into Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, focusing on the Senator’s ties to Russian government officials. These investigations began as the CIA task force designed to investigate the Trump campaign’s ties to Russia found references to the Senate Majority Leader in their probes. This task force, consisting of the Treasury and Justice departments, the Office of the Director of National Intelligence, the FBI, and the National Security Agency found recordings of conversations suggesting strategic cooperation between McConnell and the Kremlin during Trump’s presidency.
McClatchy and the BBC confirmed the results of these ongoing probes into McConnell’s ties with Russia. National Intelligence chairman Devin Nunes (R-Calif.) along with Rep. Adam Schiff (D-Calif.) today announced a joint probe into McConnell’s cooperation with Russia as well as possible interference of the presidential election. Nunes and Schiff asked the intelligence community to turn all documents over related to their investigation, stating that “it will not be adequate to review these documents, expected to be in the thousands of pages, at the agencies. They should be delivered to the House Intelligence Committee to provide members adequate time to examine their content.”
The intelligence community has already concluded that Russia intended to influence the result of the presidential election, and have begun to look deeper into ties between the Kremlin and US government officials.
Multiple democrats, along with Rep. John McCain (R-Ariz.) and Rep. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) have pushed further to call for investigations between the intelligence community and congress into Russia’s exact role in the 2016 presidential election. Paul Ryan and Mitch McConnell have rejected any attempt at bringing a committee together and have suggested conducting separate probes.
