As the Obama era of “hope and change” comes to an end, learn how the heads of state from the Muslim Arab world are responding to Donald Trump’s presidential win.

Comments and media reports from the Middle East suggest a desire to see an end to the past eight years of “weakness and withdrawal” and “lost credibility” worldwide. Under the leadership of a new administration, hope has been expressed that leadership, credibility, and a “confidence” in the U.S. government will again be restored.

And as questions persist on the government’s ability to properly vet the influx of tens of thousands of Muslim immigrants from Muslim dominant countries such as Syria and Iraq, learn what the German Federal Intelligence Service has reported out.

Meanwhile, reports by FBI Director Comey have indicated that Islamic State or ISIS operatives are being investigated in all 50 states, a reality ignored by the Obama administration and the Democrats, as Western nations now learn that ISIS members are reportedly taught to successfully evade detection, portraying themselves as “refugees.”

On the Iranian front, hear more on Iran’s Supreme Leader, Al Khamenei and the regime’s elite Iranian Revolutionary Guard Corps effectively orchestrating potential terrorist attacks, threatening to send military assets into the United States and Europe to commit acts of terror.

Make a phone call today. Americans need to contact their Congressional representative as the House of Representatives is now debating a bill to extend authorization of the economic sanctions on the Islamic Republic of Iran that will soon expire.

Consider that the Obama administration has already handed the Islamic regime over $1.7 billion while Iran exports terrorism and an Islamic agenda that promotes Islamic supremacy ideologically, politically and militarily.

In a statement announcing his plan to introduce the Royce Iran Sanctions Bill, House Foreign Affairs Committee Chairman Ed Royce (CA-36) explained: “The Iran Sanctions Act was enacted to curb Tehran’s support for terrorism and its very dangerous weapons proliferation. It should remain in place until the regime stops exporting terror and threatening us and our allies with deadly weapons.”

Note: While President Obama does not want Congress to extend the authorization, President-elect Trump wants Congress to act now to keep sanctions in force.

Contact your Congressman to urge support for the Royce Iran sanctions bill. Contact your Congressman at or by calling 202-224-3121.

Meanwhile, hear more as Iran continues to expand its ballistic missile program – an area of negotiations that remained outside U.S. led talks on a nuclear weapons deal. Learn more about the Iranian built ballistic missiles that continue to be enhanced and deployed around the region, capable of carrying nuclear warheads.

Also find out what is really happening in Mosul as American forces continue to assist Iraqi and Peshmerga forces in destroying ISIS. What is the ISIS tactic of “crashing waves?”

Did the Obama administration wait too long to begin this initiative in Iraq? Has the task proved nearly overwhelming as reported out by Iraqi forces on the ground?

Unlike the Clinton / Obama team, will a President Trump designate the Muslim Brotherhood a terrorist organization? Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX) is backing a bill in the Senate that points to the Muslim Brotherhood and their subsidiaries such as CAIR, the Council of American Islamic Relations, the Islamic Society of North America (ISNA), and the North American Islamic Trust (NAIT) as groups that advocate, celebrate and finance terrorism. Hear more and call your member of Congress.
