In renewed push, Iraqi forces enter Mosul from north for first time

Iraqi troops entered Mosul from the north for the first time on Friday, part of a new phase in the battle for the city that also saw elite forces bridge a river under cover of darkness in an unprecedented night raid.

The operations were part of a major new push launched last week to seize ground in the city, after progress in the nearly three-month-old operation had stalled for weeks because of a need to slow the advance to protect civilians.

Troops would soon “cut the head of the snake” and drive the ultra-hardline group from its largest urban stronghold, Prime Minister Haidar al-Abadi said on Friday.

The battle for Mosul is the biggest ground operation in Iraq since the 2003 U.S.-led invasion. A victory by the 100,000-strong U.S.-backed pro-government force would probably spell the end for Islamic State’s self-styled caliphate that has ruled over millions of people in Iraq and Syria since 2014.

But the militants, who are thought to number several thousand in Mosul, continue to put up fierce resistance using suicide car bombs and snipers.

    MASONS AND ALL TAX EXAMPT ENTITIES IT IS PAST TIME TO QUIT PLAY ACTING AND START WORKING TO SAVE THIS COUNTRY, LIKE MASONS DID THE FIRST 60 YEARS. BEFORE MUSLIMS TAKE US OVER AND STOP US HERE.

    I AM A 32 DEGREE MASON, WITH NEARLY 60 YEARS OF SERVICE AND I CAN TAKE A STAND. A KOREAN WAR VET 51/53. I AM ASHAMED OF WHAT JOHNSON’S TAX EXAMPTION CLAUSE DID FOR THIS COUNTRY.

    IF OUR FIRST PRESIDENT, GEORGE WASHINGTON A MASTER OF HIS LODGE TOOK A STAND, SO CAN YOU AND IF YOU DO NOT, YOU ARE TRYING TO DESTROY MY COUNTRY. HE DID NOT HIDE.

    NOW IS THE TIME FOR ALL TAX EXAMPT ENTIES, SUCH AS THE MASONIC LODGE, KNIGHTS OF COLUMBUS MOOSE, ELKS,AND ALL CHRISTIAN CHURCHES TO COME OUT OF THE CLOSET, FIND OUT ABOUT PEOPLE RUNNING AND ADVISE THEIR PEOPLE THE TRUE STORY SO THAT THEY CAN VOTE FOR THE MOST QUALIFIED.

    TRUMP HAS SAID HE WOULD DO AWAY WITH WHAT THE TAX EXAMPT DEAL THAT JOHNSON PUT ON, KEEPING TAX EXEMPT ENTITIES FROM TALKING POLITICS.

    WE MUST FIGHT FOR THIS COUNTRY OR LOSE IT, THE MUSLIMS ARE TRYING TO TAKE IT OVER AND THE BIASED MEDIA AND POLITICIANS ARE TOO STUPID TO TELL THE PUBLIC.

    IF WE DO NOT STICK TOGETHER AS A UNIT, THEN WE ARE DONE FOR. THE AMISH PEOPLE VOTED AS A UNIT FOR TRUMP AND GAVE HIM PA., OH., MICH., IOWA, FLA., NEARLY VA., AND HELPED IN IND. THIS SHOW WHAT CHRISTIAN PEOPLE CAN DO WHEN WE STICK TOGETHER.

    GOOGLE, THE NEW CLINTON CHRONICLES 2015. WE CAN CHANGE THE DIRECTION OUR COUNTRY IS HEADING.

    MASONS HAD 14 PRESIDENTS AND 18 VICE PRESIDENTS, THE FIRST 100 YEARS AND WE DESIGNED WASHINGTON, DC. BUT BECAUSE OF A PLAN BY JOHNSON TO TAKE AWAY OUR TAX EXAMPTION WE ARE NOT ACTIVE IN POLITICS.

    TRUMP SAID HE WOULD DO AWAY WITH THE ABOVE LAW.

    I VOTED FOR TRUMP. IF YOU GOOGLE THE NEW CLINTON CHRONICLES 2015, YOU WILL KNOW WHY.

    A LAW WAS PASSED IN 1952 BANNING ALL MUSLIMS FROM THIS COUNTRY. LET US HOPE AND PRAY TRUMP ENFORCES THIS LAW.

    PRAY FOR PRESIDENT ELECT TRUMP EVERY DAY. HE WILL NEED US TO OVERCOME THE EVEL OF THIS WORLD.

    GRAND LODGE IN WASHINGTON, AND GRAND LODGES IN EACH STATE HAD BETTER WAKE UP OR WE WILL LOSE ALL PRIVELAGES IF THERE IS A MUSLIM TAKE OVER AND SO WILL ALL TAX EXAMPTS.

    BELIEVERS IN CHRIST STICK TOGETHER, THIS IS WHAT MILLIONS AMISH PEOPLE DID. 30 LEADERS MEET IN OHIO WITH 3 MILLION AND VOTED THAT ALL WOULD VOTE FOR TRUMP. THERE COULD BE 20 MILLION AMISH IN THIS COUNTRY.

    THIS IS WHAT GAVE HIM OH, PA, MICH, FLA, IOWA AND HELPED IN IND AND NEARLY GAVE HIM VA.

    FOLKS IF YOU DO NOT THINK GOD WAS INVOLVED IN THIS ELECTION, I SUGGEST YOU THINK AGAIN.

    I BELIEVE WE HAVE BEEN SET UP BY HILLARY, OBAMA, KERRY, SOROS, AND THE BIASED MEDIA AT A TRY FOR A MUSLIM TAKEOVER, IF NOT, WHY ARE THERE A MINIMUM OF 37 MUSLIMS CAMPS IN THE USA, (5 IN N. VA. CLOSE TO DC) AND A FEMA CAMP IN EVERY STATE, TRY AND BUY UP ALL AMMO, TAKE OUR GUNS, BRING IN THOUSANDS OF YOU MUSLIMS. GET READY FOLK. PUT PIG GREASE ON YOUR BULLETS.

    OH, I HAVE KEEP RECORDS OF ALL THINGS THAT HAS HAPPENED THE LAST 8 YEARS AND HAVE FACTS AND FIGURES IF ANY OF YOU PEOPLE DOUBT ME.

    SHARE, SHARE, SHARE THIS OVER AND OVER AGAIN.
