"If President Trump Is On His Way Out....."


Hello John and Doves,
If President Trump is on his way out...why would he start making major changes NOW in the Department of Defense?
On November 9, President Trump fired Defense Secretary Mark Esper.  The Director of the National Counterterrorism Center and special assistant to President Trump was appointed acting Defense Secretary - that person is Christopher Miller.  One day after Esper was fired, three Pentagon officials submitted letters of resignation:  The Acting Under Secretary of Defense for Policy (James Anderson), Under Secretary of Defense for Intelligence and Security (Joseph Kernan - his resignation was planned several months ago) and Chief of Staff to the Secretary of Defense (Jen Stewart).  President Trump and his people probably knew these other two people would go with Esper.

And then, on November 27, President Trump started cleaning out the globalists on the Defense Policy Board.  Among those removed were: Henry Kissinger (former Secretary of State), Madeleine Albright (former Secretary of State), Jane Harman (former ranking member of the House Intelligence Committee) and Eric Cantor (former House Majority Leader), David McCormick and Rudy de Leon - all told there were eleven advisers removed.
"The Defense Policy Board is an outside advisory group of former high profile national security officials who "provide the Secretary of Defense and the Deputy Secretary of Defense, independent, informed advice and opinions concerning matters of defense policy in response to specific tasks."
So why would President Trump do this after the election?  And while election fraud is being challenged in the courts now and he might not win?
Maybe it has to do with this:  "Israeli military instructed to prepare for Trump strike on Iran - Israeli's military is preparing for the possibility that the Trump administration will launch a military strike against Iran, Axios reported on Wednesday.  Senior Israeli officials told the outlet that the Israeli government instructed military commanders to prepare for a potential strike during the "very sensitive period" between now and when President-elect Joe Biden takes office on Jan. 20.  Israel is reportedly making preparations with the expectation that they would receive advance notice from the U.S. regarding any military action, but with concerns that such notification might come too close to the attack.  Israel is also preparing for the possibility of a retaliatory strike by Iran, either directly or through proxies in nearby countries."
Israeli military instructed to prepare for Trump strike on Iran: report
"President Trump asked top military officials and other senior advisers about attacking an Iranian nuclear complex last week (after the election), but decided against a military strike, two reports said Monday...A number of advisers, including Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, dissuaded the president from taking the drastic action, which they believed could lead to a broader military conflict in the region, according to the report.  Reuters confirmed the Times' account of the meeting, citing an unnamed US official.  "He asked for options.  They gave him the scenarios and he ultimately decided not to go forward," the source told the news outlet."
"The Times reported that a military strike in Iran by the US "would almost certainly" target Natanz, a nuclear facility in the country where uranium stockpiles have risen to more than 12 times those allowable by the nuclear deal that Trump pulled out of in 2018."

And then on November 27, "Iran's top nuclear scientist, who American and Israeli intelligence have long charged was behind secret programs to design an atomic warhead, was shot and killed in an ambush on Friday as he was traveling in a vehicle in northern Iran, Iranian state media reported.  The scientist, Mohsen Fakhrizadeh, believed to be 59, has been considered the driving force behind Iran's nuclear weapons program for two decades, and continued to work after the main part of the effort was quietly disbanded in the early 2000s, according to American intelligence assessments and Iranian nuclear documents stolen by Israel."
Iran's Top Nuclear Scientist, Mohsen Fakhrizadeh, Assassinated: Live Updates - The New York Times
It was Fakhrizadeh that was actually named by the International Atomic Energy Agency as being THE man capable of building a bomb for Iran.  Just like the wheel, the nuclear bomb doesn't need to be 'reinvented'.  It's probably safe to say then that Iran has 'been nuclear' for years.
Of course, Iran is accusing Israel and the U.S. of being behind the assassination, vowing revenge. And, of course, Israel and the Pentagon have declined to comment.
One would wonder why President Trump would remove these top people from their powerful positions NOW.  And why would President Trump be asking about attacking Iran's nuclear facilities NOW - just weeks away from possibly loosing the presidency? IF Biden wins, he can easily place these people back in these positions.
President Obama put pressure on Israel to stop their assassinations of Iranian nuclear scientists, supposedly Biden would do the same, if he's elected president.  So, Israel would have a 'closing window' of opportunity to carry out such an attack with approval from America.  President Trump seems quite keen on militarily putting a damper on Iran's nuclear program.  There may be other 'things' on the to-do list before President Trump leaves office (if he does).  The more Israel and the U.S. do to Iran  - i.e. the more 'buttons they push', the harder it will be for Iran to restrain themselves from escalating the situation with 'severe' retaliation.  
Seems Iran understands what is going on here:
"In the last days of their gambling ally's political life (referring to President Trump), the Zionists seek to intensify and increase pressure on Iran to wage a full-blown war,"  Dehgahan (a military advisor to Khamenei) wrote..."We will descent like lightning on the killers of this oppressed martyr and we will make them regret their actions."

Is there more at play here for Israel?  Or is the ball in Iran's court now?
Some see this as an added complication to Biden's plan to buddy up with Iran again - like Obama did and make 'certain' alliances in the Middle East.  That the objective in assassinating Fakhrizadeh wasn't to set back Iran's nuclear program but to 'undermine diplomacy.'  The recent visits of high-level officials to Israel and Saudi Arabia 'raised flags that something was being cooked up' to 'provoke Iran and complicate Biden's diplomatic push.' 
"A historic meeting between Israel's prime minister and Saudi Arabia's crown prince has sent a strong signal to allies and enemies alike that the two countries remain deeply committed to containing their common foe Iran...Last Sunday's covert meeting in the Saudi city of Neom...conveyed a coordinated message to U.S. President-elect Joe Biden that Washington's main allies in the region are closing ranks."  An Israeli cabinet member said that this visit was necessary to 'create the axis which isolates Iran'.

Biden and his administration want to return to 'the Iran nuclear deal'. But much has changed since Obama made that deal with Iran.  Turkey and Russia have stepped forward with their own agendas in the region. Making any negotiations with them a real challenge at this point. And Israel and Saudi Arabia are allied to keep Iran at bay.  And Israel has the Abraham Accords with other Middle East nations.
"No matter how desperate a Biden administration may be for a deal, it will be Iran's response that will matter more," one Iran expert told CNBC....Iranian officials have alluded to a return to the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action..on the condition that Washington (under Biden) makes some serious concessions and "compensates" Iran for the economic bludgeoning it took under Trump's sanctions.  Iran's economy has contracted on average 6% each year since Trump unilaterally withdrew from the multicountry deal, brokered under the Obama administration to curb Iran's nuclear activity in exchange for sanctions relief.....Meanwhile in Tehran, no matter how much goodwill might come from the Biden administration, the lingering worry that Trump or someone like him could return in 2024 will remain at the back of the Iranian officials' minds..."Whatever deal we do with Joe Biden, the next president could come and undo it...". 
A Biden administration wants the Iran nuclear deal back. That could be much harder and riskier now
And this article came out two days BEFORE the assassination of 'the father of the Iranian regime's nuclear bomb"!  Tough sell for Joe now.
Is President Trump preparing his Department of Defense for war with Iran before January 20? There is always the possibility this could start a major conflict in the Middle East.  Or is this all to make it very hard for Biden to reform broken alliances with Iran thus protecting Israel and other Middle East countries from Iran, should he win the election?  Or both?
President Trump has given strong support to Israel in his economy damaging sanctions on Iran and pulling out of the Iran Nuclear Deal.  In fact, "...the Trump administration plans further pressure on Tehran, with sanctions related to arms, weapons of mass destruction and human rights.  "We will have next week, and the week after, and the week after - all through December and January, there will be sanctions that deal with arms, that deal with weapons of mass destruction, that deal with human rights...So this will continue on for another couple of months, right until the end, " Abrams said. (U.S Special Envoy for Iran)
UPDATE 3-U.S. Envoy to Iran Says More Sanctions Coming, Urges Biden to Maintain Leverage |
U.S. special Envoy Abrams has "cautioned against repeating what he saw as former President Barack Obama's mistakes in negotiating the 2015 nuclear deal."  (quote from link above)  And this is what Biden says he wants to do - get back in the deal.  This will not bode well for Israel. "The incoming Biden administration is to take a different approach to Iran - and Israel will need to prepare accordingly."
What Israel Wants From Biden on Iran\
Biden will not be and has not been a friend to Israel.  And Iran continues to shout "Death to America!'  "Death to Israel"
Biden Is No Friend of Israel; He’s an Adversary
"President Trump's long record of being a champion of Jewish Americans and the Jewish state of Israel is unparalleled.  Donald Trump is the most pro-Jewish, pro-Israel U.S. president in history."

We are asking ourselves, is God done with Donald Trump?  Is this the end of a pro-Israel relationship with the U.S.?  Is President Trump on his way out...or is there more to come?
As I've written before, I'd much rather have Trump as captain of the Titanic than Joe Biden.
Much can happen over the next two months up to January 20th.  Lots in play...
Watch the Middle East.  This assassination could provoke a confrontation between Iran and Israel/the U.S. in these last days.
Pray for the peace of Jerusalem!
